Hughes, Nandlall call for establishment of industrial court

first_img…in light of public servants wage standoffThe establishment of an industrial court to hear matters on workers’ grievances and other labour issues is necessary, Attorney Nigel Hughes told Guyana Times in a recent interview.Similar views were expressed by Member of Parliament and former Attorney General Anil Nandlall, who also made the call during an interview with this newspaper.Attorney Nigel HughesFormer Attorney General Anil NandlallBoth Attorneys pointed out that there were many cases of ongoing grievances and work-related issues plaguing employees, who sometimes received no justice. The most recent is the deadlock between the Government and the Guyana Public Servants Union (GPSU), who had proposed a “living wage” for workers.Hughes stated that it would be good to have the specialised court established because cases would be dealt with in a timely manner with little to no backlog. However, he proposed that before the court was built, the Administration needed to bring the existing judicial institutions up to an acceptable level, whereby there was no backlog of cases.Also, he said it was important for the Administration to consider if the country had the capacity to build another court.“Although adding another layer to the system is good, it might create more frustration for us,” he said.The People United and General Workers Union (PU&GWU) had circulated a letter to the media, requesting the coalition Government and the Opposition to move to Parliament to establish an Industrial Court, with the status of the High Court, to hear and determine disputes relating to employment and labour relations.The Union stated that it was pushing the parties for consent since both of them, in power and on the campaign trail, as well as at Labour Day rallies and marches, promised the working class and their trade unions a good and strong labour sector.In the letter, the Union stated, “Due to the number of unsolved and unsettled cases, lack of enforcement of existing labour laws, failure of Guyana signing on to more international labour laws and International Labour Organisation (ILO) and International Maritime Organisation labour conventions/laws and lack of addressing ongoing grievances and general work-related issues affecting the working class, the People United and General Workers Union (PU&GWU) strongly believes that the way to address these matters and to establish a strong, effective and improved labour sector in Guyana, and also to address workers, their trade unions, and their general grievances in a timely manner, thus the Government of Guyana needs to urgently establish an Industrial Court.”Currently, labour matters are handled by the Social Protection Ministry’s Labour Department and, in some cases, these matters would be taken to the High Court – under the previous Administration, there was a dedicated Labour Ministry.Nandlall stated that an Industrial Court would prevent this from occurring, since in some cases, employees would not have the money to hire a lawyer to represent them. He said that an established court would have specialised lawyers and judges to deliver a better quality of justice in a faster manner.“The concept of a specialised court to deal with these matters is a good one,” he opined, recalling that under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration, specialised courts were established to deal with particular issues which would have otherwise fallen into the hands of the High Court or the Magistrates’ Courts.He stated that the formation of such an institution would have its advantages, particularly in the hearing of cases immediately rather than having to join the “long backlog of unrelated cases”.However, he indicated that the establishment of an Industrial Court would be dependent on whether there were a significant number of disputes to engage a tribunal.Presently, the Government and the GPSU are at a standstill on salary increase negotiations. While Government maintains that it will not budge from its 10 per cent offer, the GPSU has been holding out and has even suggested that the two parties meet again for more talks. President David Granger has, however, said that there was nothing more that could be offered at this time.last_img read more

KPL: “We will not accept an 18-team league”

first_imgIn a statement signed by chief executive, Jack Oguda, the league management body affirmed they would not tow the line a day after FKF ‘promoted’ Kakamega Homeboyz and Nakumatt FC to their proposed expanded 18-team KPL “as per recommendation of the FKF/KPL technical committee.”“The federation National Executive Committee (NEC), which made the decision to increase the number of teams to 18, was not properly constituted as the members of Division One and KPL representatives have never been invited to the meetings as required by the Constitution and has on several occasions made decisions outside the Judicial Process contrary to its own Constitution,” Oguda writing on behalf of the KPL Executive Committee stressed.“On Friday November 14, 2014 the KPL Governing Council met and opposed the 18-Team League and reconfirmed that the 2015 Season will be a 16-Team League.“The sporting integrity dictates that the relegation and promotion is decided at the beginning of the season by all participating clubs and the relegation and promotion is bottom two clubs are relegated and the top two in the lower division promoted,” he added.Federation president, Sam Nyamweya, is quoted in a local daily Tuesday saying “The committee did not want to interfere with the relegation process that is why Nairobi City Stars have to go down,” having earlier announced the Nairobi Kawangware based side that finished 14th last season would stay up.KPL now deny such a meeting took place explaining their reasons to resist an expanded top flight starting with the call to their FKF rivals to remedy the plummeting form of national team Harambee Stars.“Harambee Stars requires more time for friendly matches and for FIFA/CAF competitions in order to increase our FIFA Ranking and this cannot happen with expanding the league and the congestion of fixtures.“The health of our players is also put into consideration whereby if the League is congested there is an increase in injuries and very few clubs have insurance medical cover to take care of the medical, recuperation and rehabilitation of the injured players which also affects and undermines the performance of the National teams,” Oguda’s statement underscored.“In 2008 when the League assisted the Federation in running the National Team Harambee Stars the team managed to get to the best position ever in the FIFA Ranking of No.68 and the clubs had to sacrifice their grants that year. It is unfortunate that right now our National Team is at No.116 indicating that we are moving backwards.”-Misappropriation claims-Responding to claims KPL were misappropriating money that would be better channelled to clubs, Oguda charged in a thinly veiled barb at the federation.“The Kenyan Premier League is a Private Limited Company and is transparent and accountable and the audited financial statements of the Kenyan Premier League can be found on the KPL website www.kpl.co.ke. Despite being Private Limited Company and have published the audited financial statements, the Law requires all public entities such as the Federation to publish their audited financial statements to its members and public.”The league management body also distanced itself in allegations published by FKF in a newspaper advert on Monday asserting the 18-team league was agreed upon by the two bodies stating; “The Draft Strategic Plan was presented by a consultant and was commented on by delegates but was not “adopted” as falsely claimed.“The members agreed that all branches must also adopt the format of the draft Strategic Plan presented and resolved that a final Strategic Plan would be discussed at a later date to be adopted by the members.” 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, November 25- The gloves have finally come off and a full-fledged battle for local football supremacy is on the cards after Kenyan Premier League (KPL) declared it will not accept an 18-team competition next season.Tuesday’s announcement is indication all efforts to amicably resolve the simmering impasse with their Football Kenya Federation (FKF) that has moved to constitute their line-up for next season’s domestic top-flight with two extra teams have failed.last_img read more

MICHAEL BLACK’S A TO Z OF EXERCISE – PART 2 – SPONSORED BY OPTIMAL FITNESS

(You can find Part One at the end of this article). F-Football Detail: Football is a brilliant way to keep the beer belly at bay. Studies show that the game’s combination of slower jogging with frequent sprints offers superior cardiovascular benefits, building both slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers (used for distance running and explosive speed, respectively) and calorie expenditure, therefore fat-burning. Great for honing calves, quads (front of thigh), hamstrings (rear) and glutes (buttocks) too.Calories burned: 500-800 per hour. Weight loss: 8/10Strength building: 3/10Toning: 7/10F-Fartlek Detail: Yes it a rare sounding name but a highly effective training technique, meaning ‘speed play’ in Swedish. A structured form of interval training in which you alternate short sprints with periods of jogging and walking, ideally over hilly ground. Works both the aerobic and anaerobic (when your muscles are using oxygen faster than you can replace it) systems and is far more effective than ‘steady state’ jogging. Good for reducing all-over body fat because of the intense calorie burn.Calories burned: 600-800 per hourWeight loss: 8/10 Strength building: 2/10Toning: 8/10F-Functional Fitness Detail: A fitness craze currently beloved of personal trainers, involving exercises that teach all the muscles to work together, rather than isolating them. Take the bent-over row, done leaning over a bench holding a weight in one hand. This builds lats (upper back), deltoids (shoulders), triceps (arms) and entire body, replicating everyday lifting situations. Helps with posture and develops strength around the major joints – perfect for the desk-bound. Calories burned: 400-600 per hour.Weight loss: 7/10Strength building: 9/10Toning: 8/10Try it here: Optimal Fitness Urban Gym Class.F-Free weights Detail: Weight-training involves resistance work that develops fatigue in the muscles you’re working. Using free weights like a barbell or dumbbells makes the body’s stability muscles work harder than with a multigym, making free-weight exercises far superior. Will help you build muscular strength and definition across the body, as well as protecting joints – and muscles burn more calories than fat, so will help with weight loss too.Calories burned: Up to 600 per hour.Weight loss: 7/10Muscle building: 10/10Strength building: 9/10Toning: 8/10Try it here: At home or in the gym.G-Green gyms Detail: A growing trend for the ethical exerciser. Based around environmental and community projects, Green Gyms involve jobs such as clearing scrubland, tree planting and path building. Great for both body and soul, they especially suit older exercisers looking to be more active. And an excellent form of functional exercise, using everyday tasks to build stronger muscles and burn calories, so banishing fat.Calories burned: 200-300 per hourWeight loss: 4/10Strength building: 3/10Toning: 4/10H-Hula hooping Detail: Another celebrity favorite, this time endorsed by Michelle Obama. Fast spreading throughout the UK and Ireland, Hula Hooping classes combine agility, cardiovascular exercise (strengthening the heart and lungs), music, movement and bags of childish fun. Very low impact, so especially good for new exercises. Works the hips, quads (front of thigh) and abdominals.Calories burned: 300-400 per hourWeight loss: 3/10Strength building: 1/10Toning: 3/10I-Interval Training Detail: Instead of ‘steady state’ exercise like slow jogging, to which the body quickly adapts, interval training involves working as hard as possible for a short period, followed by a rest, then another intense burst. This is anaerobic (when your muscles use oxygen faster than you can replace it) and builds both slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers (used for distance running and explosive sprints, respectively). Your metabolism is accelerated too. Can be performed on any piece of cardio equipment, with free weights or shuttle runs in the park.Calories burned: Up to 800 per hourWeight loss: 10/10Strength building: 3/10Toning: 7/10Try it here: At home, in the park or gym.J-Judo Detail: One of the oldest and most effective martial arts, judo also provides a rigorous cardio workout, improves concentration, balance and agility. Suitable for all ages, the risk of injury is minimised by the absence of kicks and punches. Throwing your opponent develops lean, powerful thighs, glutes (buttocks), arms and deltoids (shoulders), while grappling sessions boost both aerobic and anaerobic fitness (when your muscles are using oxygen faster than you can replace it).Calories Burned: 600 calories an hourWeight Loss: 6/10Strength Building: 6/10Toning: 6/10J-Jogging Detail: Jogging is a steady-state form of cardiovascular exercise that burns calories, improves lower-body strength and builds slow-twitch muscle fibers (used for distance running) and endurance. Builds your aerobic capacity, so your body is better able to use oxygen, and can improve blood lipids (fats) and glucose if they’re abnormal. Hones calves, hamstrings (back of thigh), quads (front) and glutes (buttocks) and is a great stress-reliever.Calories burned: 200-600 per hour.Weight loss: 6/10Strength building: 2/10Toning: 7/10Try it here: A park, beach, towpath or pavement near you.Missed Part One?

Lot turns over a new leaf

first_imgIts soil had met native Gabrielenos, Spanish explorers and trains full of immigrants headed into “the Ellis Island of Los Angeles.” The former railyard once known as The Cornfield opened downtown Saturday as the city’s newest urban park. The Los Angeles State Historic Park was hailed as a community and legislative victory following a 10-year fight to make the gritty lot green. “Right here is the future of Los Angeles,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared during a ceremony of city, county and state officials and about 200 community members. Drawn by live bands and food, many came to stroll a meandering walkway with views toward downtown and the historic 4th Street Bridge. “I’m a neighbor, and this park is welcome,” said Alexandra Leh, a film producer and screenwriter who lives in a loft downtown. “This is a very big brick in building this community.” “It’s almost unbelievable to be here and see something like this take place,” added Carole Magnuson, of Westwood and a longtime member of Friends of the River. Once slated for industrial warehouses, the controversial Cornfield site had became the subject of lawsuits and lengthy community protests. In 2001, the state bought the parcel for $36 million with an eye toward developing its first urban park. “This has been a struggle,” said state Assemblywoman Jackie Goldberg, D-Los Angeles, flanked by state parks officials. “When people insist on parks on this side of town, we get parks on this side of town. “So never be shy on raising your voice.” dana.bartholomew@ dailynews.com (818) 713-3730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The 32-acre Cornfield site, bordered by North Broadway and North Spring Street, is now the center of an international design contest to build a “world-class park” adjacent to the Los Angeles River. Three finalists will introduce designs on Oct. 14 for a park with a flair for local history. A designer will be picked in November, with plans made final after extensive public input. On Saturday, residents celebrated their park atop the one-time terminus of the transcontinental railroad, where corn once grew from seeds thrown from incoming railcars. last_img read more

Still politically outspoken, CSNY brings its message to L.A.

Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmates160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Age is supposed to make you more accepting. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young apparently didn’t get the memo. The foursome is on the road this summer railing against what they believe is an immoral administration that went to war in Iraq under false pretenses. It’s a frequently voiced view, but David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young (combined age: 250) have some extra muscle in the form of five decades’ worth of songs, many of which deal with the very topics they’re bringing to audiences across the country in the “Freedom of Speech ’06” trek. A sense of outrage is evident on stage — where the individual faces of some of the more than 2,500 American soldiers killed in Iraq are shown on a screen during “Find the Cost of Freedom” — and off. “Bush and his gang were brilliant at scaring everyone to death with the war on terrorism, to the point all everyone wants is a blanket and a cup of warm milk,” says Nash. “We’re out to touch people and present them with an idea that’s 230 years old — that you have the right to speak your mind, to dissent, to address your government. It’s patriotic to speak out — not unpatriotic, as they would have you believe.” Adds Stills: “Everyone’s pretty much had it — Iraq, Katrina, the economy, the price of oil, the stem-cell veto — and we as a nation keep rolling over and taking it. It’s time to rise up as one.” The evening with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young that comes to Irvine Meadows/Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Sunday and the Hollywood Bowl the next night covers a marathon three-dozen songs with no opening act. The set list is built from classic albums like 1969’s “Crosby, Stills and Nash” and 1970’s “D?j? Vu” (which signaled the addition of Young), as well as love songs and politically charged numbers from each member’s individual career. But the centerpiece of the show is the first concert airing of Young’s current album, “Living With War,” which questions, comments upon and skewers the Bush presidency. Young’s previous album, the country-tinged “Heart of Gold,” was the subject of a widely acclaimed concert documentary by Jonathan Demme earlier this year. ‘There’s a conscience in the country, and I don’t think it’s being spoken,” Young said in a TV interview recently. “Everyone deserves a chance to be heard. We don’t have to believe what our president believes to be patriotic.” The current “Freedom of Speech ’06” show represents CSNY’s third tour of the new millennium (and only its fourth in 36 years), following the 2000 reunion — the quartet’s first since Young left the group in 1974 — and its sequel two years later. The group first came together as a trio in 1969 — at the insistence of Cass Elliot of the Mamas and the Papas —debuting at the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Young joined the next year. Each member brought a pedigree and sensibility from other formidable bands: Crosby from the Byrds, Nash from the Hollies, and Stills and Young from the Buffalo Springfield. The group, whose lush harmonies and strong guitar work helped move untold millions of copies around the world, became the benchmark for socially aware folk-rock with and without Young. “They were the ultimate Los Angeles band, coming together in Laurel Canyon from all points and becoming deeply entrenched in the city’s culture,” said Michael Walker, author of the recent “Laurel Canyon: The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll’s Legendary Neighborhood” (Faber & Faber; $25). “That first album really started things rolling. It sold like a Beatles record, and it was the first shot across the bow that the record industry was changing and America could produce a band to compete with the British bands. CSNY started the shift of the industry from being focused on London to being focused on L.A.” Reviews of CSNY’s current dates mention shimmering renditions of the airy ballad “Guinnevere” by Crosby and Nash; “Long Time Gone” (highlighted by dueling solos from guitarists Stills and Young); the 40-year-old “For What It’s Worth,” recorded by Buffalo Springfield; and the still-relevant “Ohio,” about the government’s tragic attempt to stifle student protest at Kent State. The audiences at the shows span multiple generations. “This tour isn’t about playing it safe,” says Nash, who lives in Encino. “It’s about involving people in the process of rediscovering their power, to awaken people (to the knowledge) that they have the ability to put pressure on their elected officials to start impeachment proceedings. They have to realize it could happen.” Aside from politics, the CSNY dates are also a celebration of some ageless music as well as a famously gnarly four-way collaboration that has somehow withstood the years. “We recognize our strengths and we’re amplifying them,” Nash says. “We know what happens when we get weak. This is unifying the four of us in a way that hasn’t happened before.” CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG Where: Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood. When: 7:30 p.m. Monday.

L.A. slated to get U.S. funds for charters

first_img“It’s really questionable whether we need the charter schools,” said Lauritzen, who tried unsuccessfully to impose a moratorium on charter applications. “They’re supposed to serve a purpose and we’re getting to the point they don’t serve that purpose. It might be more effective to put together half as many charter applications, but put some real quality into them.” naush.boghossian@dailynews.com (818) 713-3722160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A $3.9 million federal grant awarded Monday to the California Charter Schools Association will pay to open 52 charter campuses statewide, about half of them in Los Angeles, officials said. The California group and six others nationwide were selected to share in the three-year, $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The money will go toward the development of independent public schools in San Diego, Fresno, Oakland and San Bernardino, but the bulk of the money will be spent in Los Angeles, said Caprice Young, president of the California Charter Schools Association. “I think what the Department of Education is seeing is that the charter school movement in California, and especially in L.A., is really taking off and doing outstanding work for students,” said Young, a former member of the Los Angeles school board. “It’s very likely that half of the 52 will open in Los Angeles and the reason is L.A. is one of the highest-need areas in the state, both demographically and in terms of the underperformance of the existing schools.” Of the 52 charter schools, 42 will be startups and 10 will be conversions – restructured from existing, underperforming schools. They’ll begin opening in 2008, officials said. Los Angeles Unified already has 106 charter schools – the most of any school district in the nation – and is expected to grow by 20 to 30 charters a year, Young said. School board member Jon Lauritzen said it’s unfair that California will get more than half of all the grant money, especially since so much of it will be spent in Los Angeles. The growing popularity of the charter movement has caused enrollment to drop in the nation’s second-largest school district, which has to compete with the independent campuses for students. last_img read more

first_imgA few minutes later the hosts had their first real glimpse of goal when Tom Hateley’s corner was left by Curran for Craig Wighton, whose low shot was saved by visiting keeper Scott Fox.Shortly after, Dundee full-back Cammy Kerr released Wighton down the right and his cross into the middle was just too high for the onrushing Kevin Holt.As half-time approached, Wighton drove into the County penalty area and cut the ball back, only for Marcus Haber to fail to arrive in time to make the most of the opening.County began the second half in positive fashion and had the ball in the net in the 48th minute. Gardyne’s cross was met by Liam Boyce, whose header couldn’t be kept out by Bain – but the Staggies striker was penalised by referee Euan Anderson for a push on Dundee captain Darren O’Dea. Dundee were also attacking at every opportunity. In the 55th minute Wighton tried his luck with a dipping long-range shot which just went past the post, before County had a glorious chance to make the breakthrough in the 74th minute.Substitute Alex Schalk set up Boyce, who then put Routis right through – but the French midfielder dragged his shot wide.A minute later, Marcus Haber found himself clean through from Gomis’ punt forward but the Canadian striker lashed wide of the target from 10 yards.The best chance in the closing stages came with 11 minutes remaining, when Schalk’s header from substitute Jonathan Frank’s cross was turned round the post by Bain. Paul Hartley’s visitors ran out convincing 3-1 winners over the Staggies on the opening day of the campaign in early August but second time around they were forced to settle for a draw against Jim McIntyre’s visitors, who enjoyed the better of the chances on Tayside.Dundee handed 20-year-old Australian midfielder Jesse Curran his first start in midfield, while Kevin Gomis returned at the heart of the their defence after his wife had given birth back in France recently.County remained unchanged from their 2-2 draw with Hearts in Dingwall and the Staggies – who went into this match on a four-match unbeaten run – had a clear opportunity to take lead inside three minutes.Christopher Routis’ corner picked out captain Andrew Davies, who was all alone – but his shot from 12 yards went straight into the arms of home goalkeeper Scott Bain.last_img read more

Planning Basics: What to Bring into the WDW Theme Parks – With Printable Checklist

first_imgShare This!You’ve arrived at your Walt Disney World hotel, dropped off your luggage, and you’re ready to head out to the theme parks! But wait, what do you need to take with you into the parks?There are a variety of strategies for deciding what to bring into the parks. Some folks want to tote only the bare minimum that will fit in their pockets, while others want to be prepared with every item they might need in any eventuality. Where you fall on this spectrum may be influenced by your age, whether you have children in your party, how many times you’ve been to the parks, how long you plan to be in the park, what time of year it is, whether you’re planning to use a locker in the parks, and a variety of other factors. What a solo adult will bring into the parks for a 1-2 hour visit might be vastly different than what a family with toddlers will need for an 8-10 hour visit.I’ll break daybag packing into must haves, next steps, deep dives, and travel with baby. Your personal needs will determine which version you choose. What You Might Need for a Day in the WDW Theme ParksHere’s a Printable PDF of the Park Bag Packing List.Must HavesMagicBands have incredible functionality. They can serve as your room key, park ticket, food and merchandise charging device, and more. If you’re using a MagicBand during your trip, bring it to the parks with you; if you’re not using a MagicBand, you’ll need your park admission ticket.The versatility of MagicBands leads some guests to believe they can go into the parks with nothing but the band, unencumbered by anything else. While it’s certainly possible that this could work, I strongly caution against it.Over the course of my many visits to Walt Disney World, there have been about half a dozen times where I’ve ended up leaving the park unexpectedly, mostly due to minor to moderate issues that resulted in a family member going directly from a park to a medical facility. While this is an unlikely circumstance, you should ALWAYS be prepared with enough identification and documentation to allow you to receive medical attention as quickly as possible. This means that you should have a photo ID, medical insurance card, and a payment card with you at all times.Even if you’re willing to risk it by not carrying your insurance card, there have been many times in my travels where technical glitches have made MagicBand payment wonky and using a credit card or cash has been necessary to make in-park purchases. Cash is also helpful if you end up off-property and need to tip someone or pay for something where plastic cards and MagicBands are not valid payment methods.The vast majority of adults (and teens and tweens) will bring their cellphone into the parks, if not for communication, then for photography and access to apps like My Disney Experience and Lines that help with navigating your park visit. Many guests report that heavy phone use in the parks takes a massive toll on their battery; an external charger can save the day.Also to remember to bring any Disney affiliation cards such as your annual pass, Disney Vacation Club card, Tables in Wonderland, and so on that may be useful in getting perks or discounts in the parks. Remember, if you have your annual pass loaded onto a MagicBand, that will get you into the park, but it’s not enough to get you a merchandise discount. For that you’ll need your physical pass card and a photo ID.I like to have a printout, or at least a screenshot, of my FastPass times and restaurant confirmation numbers in case the Disney website goes down or the park WiFi is spotty. And of course, you’ll want to bring any necessary prescription medications with you into the parks.Next StepsThe Next Steps are things that make your experience more comfortable, but are not 100% necessary. Most of the items in this section can be acquired in the parks if needed, but they’re small enough or light enough that bringing them yourself won’t slow you down.Weather-related items are at the top of most Next Step lists. Sunscreen is a must for nearly everyone, but if you’ve applied it in advance and won’t be at the parks long, you may be able to leave the bottle in the room. Other weather-related items to consider are sunglasses, sun hats, umbrellas or ponchos, sweaters, or similar items that protect you from the elements.Then consider physical comfort and minor medical issue remediation. This includes things like lip balm, hand sanitizer, a water bottle (much cheaper than buying water for $4.00 a bottle in the parks), tissues and/or wet wipes, gum or mints (gum is not available for purchase anywhere at WDW), and women may want extra hair ties or feminine hygiene supplies. I also like to bring a small pouch into the parks with a few bandaids and a dose or two of some basic over-the-counter medications like Advil, Benedryl, and Immodium. These are all available at the in-park first aid centers, but having ready access to them can be a sanity saver. Shoutout to one of my favorite niche websites, minium.biz that sells easy-to-carry, travel-size, and single-serve portions of just about every product imaginable.A typical “Next Steps” pouch of OTC meds and comfort items. Easily fits in a snack-size zip top bag.If you use a camera, rather than your phone, to capture memories be sure to bring it, along with any necessary paraphernalia such as extra batteries or memory cards. And if you’re old school, keeping your Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World on hand can help you answer park planning questions on the fly.Another easy item to tote is a small Ziploc baggie. Use this to protect your phone on water rides, to keep souvenirs corralled, to save some uneaten snacks to enjoy later in the day, or for dozens of other purposes.Deeper DiveFurther down on the list of things to bring into the parks are the “Just For Fun” items like quarters and pennies to use in the pressed penny machines, autograph books and sharpies to use when meeting characters, trading pins and pin lanyard, cards related to Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom or similar games, and wait-time entertainment for kids (or adults) such a puzzle books, Mad Libs, a small etch-a-sketch, or portable gadgets.Food is plentiful in the parks, but if you want to bring you own for allergy, preference, convenience, or budgetary reasons, feel free to do so.If you want more focus on comfort, bring extra socks (important if your feet get wet in a downpour), a cooling towel, or a small battery-operated fan or mister.And be aware that plastic straws are on their way to be phased out a Disney World, making them hard to find in some circumstances. If you’re a die-hard straw person (or need them for a medical reason), then bring your own, just in case.Travel with BabyIf you’re visiting with a small child, then traveling light is likely not an option. Baby gear you may need in the parks may include diapers, wipes, formula/bottles, baby food, baby-sized spoon, bib, pacifier, a change of clothing, swim diaper (for playing in fountains), and whatever other favorite products you need to get through the day. A small selection of these items is sold in the park Baby Care Centers, but plan to bring your own since they may not have your specific brand/variety preference.What Type of Bag Should I Use?Let’s start off by saying that everyone heading into the theme parks is subject to a bag search before being allowed to enter the parks. If you’re carrying anything that’s not in your clothing pockets, you will be asked to visit the security tables. A guard will open your bag, unzip every zipper, and open all the sub-bags within your main bag. They don’t care about food or personal items; they’re looking for weapons and other contraband (see our post on what NOT to bring into the Disney World theme parks). Guests who are not carrying bags may be allowed to bypass the security tables, but they may still have to go through a metal detector (like at the airport) and place items such as cell phones and wallets in a bin for inspection. Even the smallest clutch will be searched, so just roll with it.If you’re only toting the Must Haves, then you might not need a bag at all. If you have a baby with you, you’ll probably need a large diaper bag. A photography enthusiast will want a padded camera bag.Beyond that, it’s really a matter of personal preference: purses, fanny packs, crossbody bags, and backpacks all have their fans. Think about the weather, how much you’re carrying, the weight of the bag and its contents, and whether you plan to add items such as merchandise purchases to the bag during the day. Be aware that you can bring bags with you onto the rides and consider how the size and shape of the bag might work for or against you when boarding attractions.What are your thoughts on packing for a day at the parks? Are our Deep Dives your Must Haves? Is there something we forget? What’s your favorite bag? Let us know in the comments below.last_img read more

Obama inspires tomorrow’s leaders

(Image: GCIS) MEDIA CONTACTS • Elizabeth Trudeau Spokesperson: US Diplomatic Mission to SA +27 12 431 4217RELATED ARTICLES • SA celebrates with Obama • Obama’s hi-tech African visit • Mandela’s letter to Obama • In the church of ObamaNicky RehbockUS First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a stirring speech to young women at the world-famous Regina Mundi church in Soweto on 22 June 2011, encouraging them to take action and make a difference in society, thus shaping a new generation of leaders on the continent.Obama is on a six-day official visit to Africa focusing on young leadership, education, health and wellness. This is her second solo trip abroad as first lady.Her keynote address in Soweto was attended by a US-sponsored forum of more than 75 young women from across sub-Saharan Africa who are involved in social and economic initiatives in their respective countries. They range in age between 16 and 30.Former president Nelson Mandela’s wife Graca Machel, local political and business leaders, regular Regina Mundi congregants and members from local and international media organisations swelled the crowd inside the church to about 2 000.Conviction, eloquence and graceIn her speech Obama drew on the history of Regina Mundi, which means Queen of the World in Latin, to pay tribute to leaders of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and the civil rights movement in the US, urging the young women in the audience to follow their example.“It is because of them that we are able to gather here today … It is because of them that I stand before you as First Lady of the United States of America,” she said.“That is the legacy of the independence generation, the freedom generation. And all of you – the young people of this continent – you are the heirs of that blood, sweat, sacrifice and love.”The Catholic church, the largest of its kind in Soweto, played a pivotal role in the liberation movement in South Africa, offering refuge to freedom fighters when political meetings were banned elsewhere.Obama spoke out strongly about women’s rights in her address, saying the young leaders of the forum should ensure that women were no longer “second class citizens” and that girls were educated in schools.“You can be the generation that stands up and says that violence against women in any form, in any place, including the home – especially the home – that isn’t just a women’s rights violation. It’s a human rights violation.”The new breed of young women leaders on the continent could also be the one that overcomes the difficulties associated with HIV/Aids, Obama added.“You can be the generation that ends HIV/Aids in our time, the generation that fights not just the disease, but the stigma of the disease, the generation that teaches the world that HIV is fully preventable and treatable, and should never be a source of shame.”Without notes, Obama spoke for 40 minutes with rousing conviction, eloquence and grace – showing she’s every bit as powerful an orator as her husband.In closing, she used his famous campaign slogan from 2008 to inspire confidence in the women and urge them to be proactive about the issues she discussed.“If anyone ever tells you that you shouldn’t or you can’t, then I want you to say with one voice – the voice of a generation – you tell them, ‘yes, we can’.”Meeting MandelaDuring her stay in Gauteng, Obama also met with Nelson Mandela at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg, after receiving a personal invitation from him. Her daughters Malia and Sasha, who are accompanying her on the trip, also got the chance to meet and spend time with the icon.On the same day as the Mandela meeting, the First Lady visited President Jacob Zuma’s second wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli Zuma, in Pretoria and toured the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.The next stop is Cape Town, where a meeting with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and a trip to Robben Island is scheduled, and then Botswana, where the Obamas will spend time at a private game reserve.last_img read more

SA mulls reopening Durban naval base

first_img27 February 2012 South Africa is taking steps to tackle piracy in its surrounding waters, and is considering re-opening a former naval base in Durban for this purpose, says Defence and Military Veterans Minister Lindiwe Sisulu. Salisbury Island, now joined to the mainland, is part of the Port of Durban. A full naval base until it was downgraded in 2002, it now contains a naval station and other military facilities. Addressing a media briefing in Cape Town on Sunday, Sisulu said the government’s strategy for tackling piracy in its surrounding waters might necessitate the re-opening of the base. Salisbury Island was identified as a potential base at the meeting of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) standing maritime committee in Durban last week, but costs had not yet been calculated.One warship, ‘merely as a deterrent’ So far, South Africa has deployed one warship – the SAS Isandlwana – to tackle piracy off east and southern Africa. The frigate is supported by a number of on-board helicopters as well as by ground troops. The South African Maritime Strategy, adopted by the Cabinet last year, is being piloted by South Africa, Tanzania and Mozambique, and Sisuslu said the deployment of the Isandlwana was more a deterrent than anything else. “We intend to start small because it’s going to be a very costly, very huge exercise,” Sisulu said. South Africa has also signed a pact with Tanzania and Mozambique on maritime security co-operation, which would see the three countries working together to secure their respective territorial waters.Policing waters ‘crucial for trade’ Sisulu said figures from two years ago by the International Maritime Bureau indicated that the cost of piracy was between R1-billion and R16-billion a year. Added to this, there had been 17 acts of piracy in Tanzania last year. She said the sea was very important for intra-African trade, as 91% of goods traded between African countries were transported by sea, while the continent had 44 refineries in 25 countries. This made it essential for African countries to police the continent’s waters, she said. She said the department would be requesting that at least two percent of GDP be allocated to defence spending. One idea, she said, was that those departments that could benefit from additional defence – such as Agriculture and Trade and Industry – could pool their resources.Helping Somalia International Relations and Co-operation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, also present at Sunday’s briefing, said that in order to deal with piracy, it was important to tackle political problems on the ground. Nkoana-Mashabane attended a meeting in London last Thursday, hosted by African Union security- council members, on how to work together with Somalis to return their country to normalcy. She said South Africa had also pledged to make a donation of £10-million in the form of services and support to those in liberated zones in Somalia. Somalia is the base for almost all of the pirates now active off east and southern Africa. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Retail Shoplifting Policies and Procedures

first_imgWhile annual shrinkage surveys covering retail loss prevention go some way in offering an oversight as to how the industry is thinking about a range of issues, they rarely delve into much detail around specific topics. The purpose of this series of benchmarking surveys was to provide the LP industry with focused and practical insights into specific topics judged to be of interest by practitioners themselves, such as retail shoplifting policies and procedures.For the first benchmarking survey, the authors looked at how some of the biggest retailers in the US are experiencing shoplifting, violence associated with these incidents, and the shoplifting policies and procedures put in place to manage these issues.BackgroundAnecdotal evidence from the industry suggested the rates of shoplifting and violence associated with external theft were thought to be increasing considerably. In addition, there was little published knowledge on the extent to which different retail shoplifting policies and procedures were being used.- Sponsor – Of course, the value of any benchmark survey is dependent upon the quality and representativeness of the responses upon which it is based. For this study, the authors chose to target as many of the largest US retailers (based upon sales) as possible, exploiting existing contacts within the loss prevention industry.A request for information was sent out to 58 retailers representing 47 percent of US retail (based upon sales). In the end a response rate of 69 percent was achieved, meaning that the benchmark sample equates to 40 percent of the US market, totaling $1.306 trillion in retail sales. Overall, respondents had a total of 92,489 stores.Note that this sample is not representative of US retailing in general. It only represents a significant proportion of the largest companies. Therefore, no effort will be made to extrapolate estimates from this data to try and represent US retailing as a whole. If individual companies intend to draw comparisons with this data, it is important that they understand the overall profile of the companies that responded. This post provides only a snapshot of the main results from the study. To receive a free copy of the full report, please contact one of the authors at the email addresses found in their author bios.Benchmark FindingsDetailed below are some of the key findings from the survey, looking specifically at levels of victimization, retail shoplifting policies and procedures related to apprehensions, and the extent to which respondents have standards on minimum age and dollar values when considering prosecutions.Recording Shoplifting and Violent Incidents. The vast majority of respondents had some form of system in place for recording the number of shoplifting incidents within their businesses (92 percent). However, far fewer stated they kept records of the number of shoplifting incidents where employees had been either injured, threatened with violence, or a weapon had been used (50 percent).As can be seen in the table below, the sample of retailers experienced 1.9 million incidents of shoplifting in the most recent twelve-month period, down 5 percent from the previous year. In terms of violent shoplifting incidents, they had records of 22,770 incidents in the most recent twelve-month period, down 2 percent from the previous year.For those retailers that track the number of shoplifting incidents they have experienced, this equates to an average of 28 incidents of per store. For those companies tracking violent incidents, this equates to less than one incident of violence per store in any one year. Both these rates varied considerably by size of retailer (as measured by sales), with larger companies experiencing higher rates of shoplifting incidents and instances of violence per store.However, overall it is reassuring to note that of the nearly two million incidents of shoplifting recorded by these companies, just 2.3 percent resulted in violence. While any instances of violence against retail staff is regrettable and undoubtedly traumatic for the victim, this is a remarkably low number and, in many respects, testament to the efficacy of the policies and practices put in place to mitigate the likelihood of incidents of shoplifting turning violent.The data is also interesting in that it indicates a trend that is generally downward, countering some of the anecdotal concerns aired about both rising dramatically in recent times. Of course, it needs to be remembered that this data is based upon recorded incidents, and it is therefore likely that actual levels of shoplifting and violence will be different. But it is interesting that for those companies keeping a record, the evidence seems different from the perceptions held by some in the industry.Retail Shoplifting Policies and Procedures for Apprehensions. The benchmark survey was also interested in understanding what policies and practices were being used by retailers when it came to employees apprehending shoplifters. Respondents were able to select more than one option. Therefore, the responses do not add up to 100 percent.Relatively few respondents—just 18 percent—said that they had a “no apprehension” policy. Of those that did have a policy of apprehending thieves in their stores, the vast majority operated a “no chase” policy (78 percent), with only 8 percent stating that they had a “limited chase” policy whereby staff could run after thieves, but only to an agreed boundary.A significant proportion of respondents (45 percent) said that they operated a “no physical touch” policy when dealing with thieves, with just over one-third (35%) stating that staff could use force but only in self-defense. A much smaller proportion (15 percent) allowed staff to use “reasonable force” in making apprehensions and one in five allowed the use of handcuffs (20 percent).Because of the relatively small number of respondents taking part in this survey, it was not possible to carry out any additional analysis on these policies and practices. Therefore, no conclusions could be drawn on whether having any given policy was related to higher or lower rates of shoplifting incidents or rates of violence. However, the data did show that there was no significant difference by size of retailer. Overall, what seems clear is that the largest proportion of retailers responding to this survey do have a policy of apprehending shoplifters but require staff not to, where possible, touch them, unless in self-defense and not to run after them if they are fleeing the store.Respondents were also asked about their policies on allowing non-loss prevention staff to engage in apprehending shoplifters. Most stated that it was not their policy to allow staff to do this (58 percent), although 42 percent did state that they allowed only store management to apprehend thieves. Given the representation of large retailers in this sample, it was perhaps not surprising that 77 percent of respondents employed specific loss prevention staff in some or all of their stores to deal with incidents of shoplifting.Read the full article, “Comparing Policies and Practices on Managing Shoplifting,” to uncover policies on age limits and dollar values reported in the survey.

Sonicwall Has Best Web-Based Live Demo Site

first_imgTags:#biz#How To That is a critical piece of the live demo environment: to actually let users try the products out. “We made a choice during the original design and planning that rather than have flash demos or locked images, we’d just let people play around as much as possible. It’s been fairly successful, as we usually have about 300 users a day, and traffic grows at a fairly consistent 5-10 percent a quarter,” says Parry. “As far as I know, no other company does this to the extent we do.”For small businesses that are interested in trying out Sonicwall’s products and getting a feel for how they work, their Live Demo site is worth a visit. Do let us know other places that offer something similar. Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting One of the mostly unrealized applications of Web technology is to allow small businesses to kick the tires of products they want to purchase, by putting up live product demos. Given the proliferation of Web interfaces on many products, you would think this would be a no-brainer; and while lots of companies have put up canned video screencaptures showing one or two products, no one has taken the time and effort to let customers test drive their complete product line to the extent that Sonicwall has with its Live Demo site.The site has six different categories of products to examine, including firewalls, backup, remote access and email security. “We now have three full racks in our datacenter,” says Dave Parry, the engineer from Sonicwall who started this as a personal project with a few pieces of equipment under his desk back in October 2007. “We use VMware ESX 4.0 servers and an EMC array to house the fifty or so server, desktop, and client images that comprise the environment. All of the images are snapshotted. We restore them twice daily, so people can go ahead and break stuff, but any changes they make are just erased when the images are restored.” The products are all connected and interact with each other, so an SSL Virtual Private Network gives access to various resources, the backup products perform actual backups, and so forth. “The site contains functional, completely interactive demos for every product Sonicwall makes.” You can see a network map of what Parry has created below. david stromlast_img read more

MTC Workgroup Discusses Updating P.L. 86-272 Statement

first_imgThe Multistate Tax Commission (MTC) held the first work group call to discuss updating its Statement of Information regarding the federal Interstate Income Tax Law (P.L. 86-272).P.L. 86-272 prohibits states from imposing an income tax on income derived in the state from interstate commerce if in-state activity is limited to soliciting orders for sales of tangible personal property that is shipped from outside the state.Workgroup ProjectThe work group was created to propose revisions to the MTC’s P.L. 86-272 statement. Changes in the economy and the way that business is conducted necessitate the revision. The last time the P.L. 86-272 statement was updated was 2001.The statement reflects the signatory states’ current practices regarding:– if a particular factual circumstance is covered by P.L. 86-272 or permitted under the statement as either protected or not protected from taxation; and– the jurisdictional standards that apply to sales made in another state for purposes of applying a throwback rule (if applicable) with respect to those sales.Initial Meeting DiscussionOn the initial call, the group began with a discussion of P.L. 86-272. Next, the group outlined a list of topics to address.The group will begin by discussing:– selling tangible personal property over the internet;– selling digital goods or licensing other tangible property over the internet;– cloud computing;– listing some modern services as either unprotected or protected activities;– whether to update the list of unprotected activities to state that they may be performed either by computers or persons, remotely or in person; and– revising or deleting the section adopting the Joyce rule.The group plans to meet every-other week on Thursdays. For meeting agenda information, see the MTC’s dedicated work group webpage at http://www.mtc.gov/Uniformity/Project-Teams/P-L-86-272-Statement-of-Information-Work-Group.Multistate Tax Commission, P.L. 86-272 Statement of Information Work Group, January 17, 2019Login to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber?

Negotiations hit snag as shutdown deadline approaches

first_img(AP) – The White House is refusing to rule out the possibility that the federal government may shut down again.Negotiators are clashing over whether to limit the number of migrants authorities can detain, creating a new hurdle for a border security compromise that Congress can accept.With a Friday deadline approaching, the two sides remain separated over how much to spend on President Donald Trump’s promised border wall.Rising to the fore is a related dispute over curbing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, the federal agency that Republicans see as an emblem of tough immigration policies.People involved in the talks say Democrats have proposed limiting the number of immigrants in the country illegally and caught inside the U.S. – not at the border – that the agency can detain.last_img read more

White House Launches New Tally of STEM Education Programs

first_imgAn inventory by the Bush Administration of federal efforts to bolster science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education was too simplistic to be useful, according to a White House official. So the Obama Administration plans to repeat the exercise—but with more analysis—as a first step toward improving STEM programs. In 2007, the Bush-era Academic Competitiveness Council (ACC) found that 12 agencies were spending a combined $3.1 billion a year on 105 programs covering education and training at all levels, from elementary school through postgraduate studies and including outreach efforts. The council’s tally was supposed to lead to a streamlining of government operations. But Carl Wieman, associate director for science within the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, says that ACC wasn’t helpful and that a new White House panel will take another shot. “The ACC is a list of programs, basically,” Wieman tells ScienceInsider. “You need something more nuanced than simply labeling it STEM education. Because that leads people to ask, ‘You’re spending all this money, why don’t we have great STEM education?’ The reality is that [these programs] do a large variety of different things, from graduate fellowships at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to an introduction to science for kindergarteners. Different parts of different agencies do things that are important to their mission.” Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) Wieman says the new panel, under the White House’s National Science and Technology Council, will look at “what these programs do, how they fit together, and how well they match what we feel are best practices.” He says that the review will rely heavily “on evidence and on what we know about learning.”last_img read more

WWE SmackDown LIVE Review, November 13, 2018

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement The latest edition of SmackDown LIVE brought about an unlikely turn of events heading into Survivor Series. So instead of waiting for the climax, let’s dive straight into the main event:Daniel Bryan crowned new WWE ChampionIt happened once again. For the second consecutive year, the WWE Championship changed hands prior to Survivor Series as Daniel Bryan beat AJ Styles for his fourth title reign.It all started with a war of words between the two competitors that ultimately led to an all-out brawl before both had to be separated by WWE Officials. In an evenly contested match, Styles went to the top rope to land a Phenomenal Forearm however, Bryan, evaded it and instead, the former WWE Champion collided with the referee.Daniel took advantage of the situation and struck AJ with a low blow followed by a running knee and grabbed the pinfall victory. An unexpected heel turn from Bryan also resulted in him earning the opportunity to face Brock Lesnar in a Champion v Champion match this Sunday.Becky Lynch ruled out for Survivor SeriesThe invasion on the Monday Night RAW Women’s Division led to Becky Lynch suffering a broken nose in the carnage and consequently, it was confirmed this Tuesday night that the SmackDown Women’s Champion has not been cleared to compete at Survivor Series.Due to a broken face, #SDLive #WomensChampion @BeckyLynchWWE will be unable to compete this Sunday at #SurvivorSeries. pic.twitter.com/47Gwh2Xava— WWE (@WWE) November 14, 2018However, Lynch remained confident and insisted that she would still kick Rousey’s ass with a broken face. The Man then shifted her attention to picking her replacement for this Sunday and after overseeing every superstar of the SmackDown Women’s roster in the ring, Becky hand picked Charlotte Flair to face the RAW Women’s Champion.The two old bitter enemies put aside their past rivalries aside and stood united for the Blue brand as Charlotte will square up against Ronda Rousey in a dream match for the WWE Universe.Jeff Hardy vs Andrade Cien AlmasAndrade Cien Almas began strongly off the gates following a series of vicious attacks on his opponent. The Enigmatic Jeff Hardy, however, regrouped and got himself back in the match but couldn’t capitalize on his opportunity to finish the match.Almas too had his moments and was about to hit his signature Hammerlock DDT but Hardy countered it with the Twist of Fate and gave himself the opening to land the Swanton Bomb that secured him the win and also a spot as the final member of the SmackDown Survivor Series team.Rey Mysterio vs The MizRey Mysterio clashed against SmackDown Survivor Series team Captain The Miz with his place on the line. The Miz took the upper hand early on as he locked Mysterio in a submission move although in the latter stages, Rey was able to hit the 619 but Miz dodged the frog splash as he got his knees up and rolled him up for a two count.The A-Lister was frustrated which provided Mysterio with the chance to roll him up for the win and keep his spot on the SmackDown squad intact.The former WWE World Champion’s celebration was cut short as Randy Orton snuck up from behind but Mysterio was able to avoid The Viper’s attacks and instead, Orton flattened The Miz with an RKO.The Usos unveil SD Survivor Series Tag Team lineupThe Usos and The New Day will be joined by The Colons (Epico and Primo), Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and Sanity for their match against the RAW Tag Teams this Sunday at Survivor Series.The Bar and Big Show vs The New DayBoth teams had a string of near falls but with the match speeding up, Big Show’s presence was the defining point as he eliminated the threat of Xavier Woods.Kofi Kingston was left shorthanded and the numbers game caught up as Big Show landed a knockout punch to Kofi in mid-air and grabbed the W for his team.last_img read more

VIDEO: Female Boxing champ says she can beat Gennady Golovkin

first_imgAdvertisementIBF, WBO, WBA, WBC undisputed middleweight champion Claressa Shields is coming off of an impressive unanimous decision victory over undefeated Christina Hammer last weekend at the Broadwalk Hall in Atlantic City.Ever since that victory she has been extremely confident and has said that no female fighter can beat her. She went on to say that she can even beat Male boxers. She specifically told TMZ that she can beat WBA welterweight champion and WBC welterweight champion Shawn Porter, Keith Thurman and can also give former middleweight champion of the world Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin a run for his money.“I spar with men. I drop men. I bust [men’s noses]. I beat men up all the time,” Shields said to TMZ Sports.“If I was to say which is the guy, I think I could beat — I think I could beat up Keith Thurman. I really do. I think I could beat up Keith Thurman, even though they’re like ‘oh, he beat Shawn Porter.’ I think I can beat Shawn Porter too, you know, skill-wise and just strength-wise. I think they may be stronger than me but their boxing ability isn’t like mine.”“GGG, he’s older now, but I could give GGG a run for his money.”She then explained the reason behind why she could beat Golovkin and said that power isn’t everything in Boxing and that she has a great defence. “You know what? Power for power isn’t a question because what is boxing? Boxing’s the sweet science. It’s not about strength. It’s not about strength because people were saying Christina Hammer was stronger than me…but did you not see the head movement that I had during the fight? See the defense, the offense, the traps I set?“If I was to get in with a man I would do a lot more of that, and I do have some power. I do have some power. I’m not gonna say I’m stronger than them but if I set up the right shot, with the right timing…”ALSO READ:Gennady Golovkin sues his managers for ₹25 Crore ($3.5 Million) Advertisementlast_img read more

A closer look at Melania Trump, America’s first foreign-born First Lady since the 19th century

first_imgRepublican Donald Trump has now officially become the President of the United States after his Inaugration Day on January 20, 2017. Henceforth, his wife Melania Trump will now be called the First Lady. Melania Trump is the first foreign-born First Lady since 19th century. Before her, it was John Quincy Adams’ wife Louisa, First Lady from the year 1825 to 1829.Although, Donald Trump is quite famous for his flamboyant attitude and tweets. Similarly, his wife Melania is too matching his pace and making headlines ever since he decided to run for becoming the 45th President of the United States.Communist Yogoslavian rootsShe was born in Sevnica, Yugoslavia now in Slovenia. Her original name was Melanija Knavs but she stuck to her model alias, MelaniaKnauss. Melania is the daughter of Viktor Knavs, who was a Communist Party member & managed car dealerships, and Amalija Ulnik, a pattern maker at a textile factory. Born on April 26, in 1970, she is 46 years old which makes it to a 24 year age gap with Donald Trump, who is 70.  Modelling career She began modelling at the age of 16 under the name MelaniaKnauss. Acclaimed photographer Stane Jerko invited her for a trial photoshoot as he liked her look. She was under the spotlight soon after that photoshoot which made her grab a contract with Italian model agency ID at the age of 18. She later on worked in Paris.She has graced the catwalks and magazines around the world including a controversial shoot on Trump’s customised Boeing 727 featuring Melania wearing nothing more than handcuffs.advertisementMelania told in her GQ interview: “My mom was in the fashion business. I was five years old when I did my first catwalk and did commercials at 16. I went professional after my studies. My mum loved fashion. We loved to travel and go to Italy and Paris. A lot of people say I am using all the procedures for my face. I didn’tdo anything. I live a healthy life, I take care of my skin and my body.I’m against Botox, I’m against injections; I think it’s damaging yourface, damaging your nerves. It’s all me. I will age gracefully, as mymom does.”Melania also runs a jewellery business. She once joked in an interview that after taking care of her son and running the business, her husband is her third job.   The Trump effect Melania met Trump in 1998 when she was 28 years old. Apparently, during a party thrown by Zampolli at the Kit Kat Club in Manhattan. Trump’s ‘plus one’ for the party was Norwegian cosmetics heiress Celina Midelfart. He actually asked for Melania’s number after he saw her at the party but apparently she refused to divulge that Trump already came with a date. She took Trump’s number, though.She said in an interview, “If I give him my number, I’m just one of the women he calls. I wanted to see what his intention is. It tells you a lot from the man what kind of number he gives you. He gave me all of his numbers.”After seeing each other for a while, they actually broke up for a few months when Trump said that he might run for the US President in the year 2000. Trump, who was married twice before, proposed Melania at the Costume Institute Gala in New York. The couple got married in January 2005 at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida.Her engagement ring was a 2 million USD Graff diamond and a dress made by British designer John Galliano which was priced 1,40,000GBP.Their reception was attended by former President Bill Clinton and Trump’s current political nemesis Hillary Clinton.  The kidsMelania and Donald’s only child, Barron William Trump was born in the year 2006. She is also a stepmother to Donald Jr who is 38, Ivanka who is 35, Eric who is 32. The three kids were fromTrump’s first marriage to Ivana. She is also a stepmother to Tiffany, who is 22, from Trump’s second wifeMarla Maples.Barron Trump is fluent in Slovenian besides English and reportedly had his own floor of the Trumps apartment in Trump Tower in Manhattan as an infant. Melania sometimes calls him by his nickname ‘Mini-Donald’.  Melania as First LadyIn the year 2000, when Trump was toying with the idea of running for the office, Melania said that, “I would be very traditional as a First Lady, like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy.”Melania is currently staying at home in New York instead of East Wing in White House with Donald Trump. She is ensuring a stable education for their son Barron who is currently in fourth grade at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. It is still unclear whether she will be staying in New York until the end of this year or till he finishes school.advertisementWhile she is in New York for sometime, Trump’s daughter Ivanka will be taking up some of the duties of the First Lady.   Interested in General Knowledge and Current Affairs? Click here to stay informed and know what is happening around the world with our G.K. and Current Affairs section. To get more updates on Current Affairs, send in your query by mail to education.intoday@gmail.comlast_img read more

ICC U-19 World Cup: Anukul Roy, Prithvi Shaw help India hammer Papua New Guinea

first_imgIndia inched closer to a quarter-final berth of the ICC Under-19 World Cup by defeating Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets at the Bay Oval in Tauranga on Tuesday.Anukul Roy grabbed 5/14 as PNG were bowled out for 64 in 21.5 overs. India chased down the target in 8 overs thanks to Prithvi Shaw’s super-aggressive 57 not out.WATCHThe victory means India are all but through to the knockouts – on Sunday, they had defeated Australia by 100 runs.India won the toss and decided to bowl, as the bowlers responded by bowling Papua New Guinea out for a paltry 64 in just 21.5 overs. Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy led the charge with figures of 5/14, showing that the Indian attack is more than just sheer pace, something that came to the fore against Australia in their tournament opener.The pacers, Shivam Mavi (2 wickets) and Kamlesh Nagarkoti (1 wicket), who started things off , reduced Papua New Guinea to 40/3, opening the door for the Indian spinners to wreck havoc. Anukul Roy came on in the 10 over, and by the time he as done with his fifth, PNG were reduced to 62-6, with taking two off those. Anukul Roy claimed his career best figures, as the PNG batters fell like nine-pins, self-destructing in their attempt to post a challenge.India could have been chasing a far lower total had it not been for a few dropped catches. But, as it turned out, Shaw and his fellow opener Manjot Kalra, walked out to bat, and by the time PNG finished their eighth over, India had strolled to a comfortable 10-wicket victory.advertisement Prithvi Shaw scored 57 out of India’s 67 runs.Kalra was more than happy to take a back seat with his run-a-ball 9 as his captain went on the rampage. The chase was a mere formality, but the way Shaw went about his business, enjoying himself, throughout his 39-balls stay, with 12 strokes to the boundary, was a sight to behold. He was let off the hook on 33, when Ovia Sam dropped a difficult chance running back.Handshakes, hugs and high fives all around for India U19s after a dominant display against PNG! #U19CWC pic.twitter.com/mOeD3cO7Y1— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) January 16, 2018India next face Zimbabwe in their last group B game on January 19 at Bay Oval in Tauranga.last_img read more

Report: Crystal Palace 2 Arsenal 3

first_imgCrystal Palace 2 Arsenal 3: Rapid Sanchez double seals win for record-equalling Wenger Ryan Benson Last updated 1 year ago 06:00 12/29/17 ozil-sanchez-cropped Getty Images Arsene Wenger equalled Alex Ferguson’s haul of 810 Premier League games managed, with Alexis Sanchez inspiring a 3-2 win at Crystal Palace. Alexis Sanchez stole the show with a pair of excellent quickfire goals as Arsenal beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park in Arsene Wenger’s record-equalling 810th Premier League match in charge of the club.For much of the game, Arsenal produced some of the fine football we have grown accustomed to since Wenger’s arrival in 1996, and Sanchez produced two moments of real quality in less than four second-half minutes to clinch all three points as the Gunners boss moved level with Alex Ferguson in terms of Premier League fixtures managed.Although Palace went into the match without a defeat in their previous eight top-flight outings, Arsenal were well in charge for the majority of the first half and were fully deserving of the opening goal through Shkodran Mustafi in the 25th minute.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The visitors failed to make the most of their chances while they were on top, though, and Palace punished them early in the second period – Andros Townsend with the finish after excellent play from Wilfried Zaha.But that seemed to be the scare Arsenal needed to jolt them back into life, as Sanchez – who will enter the final six months of his contract on January 1 – took over to leave Palace wondering what had hit them.The Eagles showed desire to get back in the match and pulled one back in the 89th minute through James Tomkins, but they were unable to stop Arsenal cruising to victory and going level with fifth-placed rivals Tottenham on 37 points .Arsenal looked focused and in control during the early exchanges and produced some neat football which led to chances.Jack Wilshere, Sanchez and Granit Xhaka had efforts blocked by Palace’s robust defending, but their resistance was ended just after the midway point in the opening period. #AFCvTHFC #CPFCvAFCNice one, @MustafiOfficial pic.twitter.com/emW3KorJaC— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) December 28, 2017Alexandre Lacazette forced Julian Speroni into a save from a tight angle on the right side of the area and Mustafi coolly slotted in the rebound.Mesut Ozil nearly added a speedy second, latching onto Sanchez’s pass and seeing his flicked effort saved by Speroni.Palace showed no sign of getting to grips with Arsenal, but they managed to avoid falling further behind before the break – Ozil tried to square to Sanchez when through on goal, only to get it all wrong.But the hosts were quick out of the blocks in the second half and levelled in the 49th minute.Zaha beat Calum Chambers with ease and cut a pass back towards the penalty spot, where Townsend arrived to send an emphatic strike into the bottom-left corner.Arsenal looked unrecognisable to the team that dominated the first period, but a moment of brilliance from Sanchez restored their lead.Ozil clipped a lofted pass into the left side of the area, which Wilshere nodded down to Lacazette, and the Frenchman teed up Sanchez for a rasping drive into the bottom-left corner.What a ball from super @JackWilshere!!! #COYG— Nacho Monreal (@_nachomonreal) December 28, 2017The Chilean extended Arsenal’s lead in the 66th minute, racing on to a sumptuous pass over the Palace defence from Wilshere – who also has just over six months left on his contract – before calmly nudging the ball beyond the stranded Speroni.Palace piled pressure on towards the end, with Zaha heading a glorious chance wide and substitute Bakary Sako shooting well over from just inside the area.Tomkins showed them how it was done, heading Townsend’s corner in late on to force a nervy finish for the Gunners, who held on to inflict a first defeat on Palace since Tottenham beat them on November 5. Key Opta stats:- Arsenal have won more Premier League London derbies (120) than any other side.- Alexis Sanchez has had a hand in 13 goals in his last 15 Premier League London derbies (10 goals, three assists).- Jack Wilshere has started in four consecutive top-flight games for Arsenal for the first time since March 2014.- Wilfried Zaha has provided three assists in his last two Premier League games against Arsenal. read morelast_img read more

7 Online Donation Page Mistakes to Avoid

first_imgHas it been a while since you’ve updated your organization’s online donation page? It’s time to get down to business and whip your donation form into shape before the year-end stream of donations begins. Get better online fundraising results by avoiding these donation page mistakes:1. Too much text.Once your donor has landed on your donation page, don’t confuse, overwhelm, or bore them with paragraphs of text. One or two lines of short, compelling copy are plenty. Your goal is to reinforce your call to action and get donors to your donation form as quickly as possible.2. Too many options.Just like too much text, too many options on your online donation page can make donors less likely to complete your form. Get rid of unnecessary fields and remove extraneous navigation that will take donors away from your page.3. Inconsistent branding.When a donor goes to your donation form from your email appeal or website, do they feel like they have been transported to a different planet? A donation page that looks like your other campaign materials and your nonprofit’s website makes your donation experience familiar and seamless.4. Outdated information.This may seem like a no-brainer, but if you have outdated information on your nonprofit donation page, you’re sending a not-so-subtle signal to donors that you may not be the best steward of their gift. Make sure you’re not still touting a matching grant that has expired, a program that has ended, or last year’s fundraising goal.5. Lack of testing.Two types of online donation page testing will help you get better results this year. Usability testing will help you uncover any issues that may derail a donor. A/B testing can help you decide which images, calls to action, and suggested donation amounts perform best. 6. No suggested giving amounts. Make it easy for your donors by offering suggested giving amounts that take the guesswork out of how much to give. Use your average gift as a starting point, and then offer one giving amount that’s slightly lower and two or three higher amounts. Illustrate what each gift level could provide with impact labels to help donors visualize the result of their donation.7. No recurring gift options.If you’re not offering supporters a way to give a recurring gift, you’re missing out on donations. Recurring gifts help donors fit giving into their budgets and allow you to collect more over time. If donors feel like they can’t give enough to make a difference, they may not give at all. Frame your recurring gift options in a way that lets donors know how their regular support will help.last_img read more

Why Your Emails Need a Personal Touch

first_img3. Make your email a part of a conversation.Sending your email from one person, using first-person pronouns, and including contractions will keep your note feeling conversational. If you write, “The Denver Puppy House is pleased to receive your donation,” or, “We used those funds to buy medicine,” you might come across as formal and dull. But if you write, “I am so glad you were able to make a donation to help our puppies,” or “I couldn’t have done it without you,” you’ll sound intimate and chatty. 1. Use a personalized greeting.If your friend sent you a note that said, “Dear Sir or Madam,” you might be a little confused. While you may not individually know all of your supporters, think of them as your nonprofit’s treasured partners and write to each one by name with a friendly greeting. Try saying “Hello there, Matt!” instead of “Dear Matthew.”2. Have a warm tone.Adopt a warm, welcoming tone by using simple sentences and informal language. This will help your email be breezy instead of stiff. Choosing shorter words such as “get” over longer words like “acquired” will make your email read as if from a friend. When your donors feel valued and special, they’re more likely to give again and again. One way to spread the love is by giving your emails a personal touch. Here’s how:last_img read more

Reducing Newborn Deaths by Targeting Adolescent Mothers

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on March 3, 2014November 14, 2016Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Last week, Save the Children published a report entitled, “Ending Newborn Deaths.” The report highlights the need to concentrate on the reduction of newborn deaths as it lags behind the efforts of those tackling <5 deaths.  The report calls on governments, world leaders, the private sector and philanthropists to commit to a five-point Newborn Promise to end these preventable deaths by increasing access and availability to skilled health workers, increasing funds for healthcare improvements, and decreasing user costs and fees for services, medicines and interventions.While the report lists numerous factors that must to be addressed to reduce preventable deaths, a recent editorial by The Lancet also points out the need to specifically target young mothers (who make up 10% of all births) and adolescents who are known to have some of the most risky pregnancies and deliveries.The Save the Children report says this about young mothers:In low- and middle-income countries overall almost 10% of girls become mothers by the age of 16. They are at greater risk of losing their babies than women who become mothers later – mothers under 20 are 50% more likely to have a stillbirth or to lose their baby within the first week after birth than mothers aged 20–29 years.By targeting adolescents, the Lancet argues, not only will there be a reduction in neonatal mortality, but by reducing child marriages, unwanted births, delaying their first child, and creating more options for education (including secondary, reproductive, and contraceptive education) these young women will be given the tools to start to take charge of their own health, work options and economic destinies.  With the commitments of governments and local health agencies these women will not only better care for their own pregnancies and  newborns, but also will have the education to know that they can advocate for their family’s health rights.  Adolescent programming must include the input of the adolescents themselves, while ensuring that the programs give them the oversight, support, and education they need.Lasting interventions are needed for newborn death reduction and who better to target than the adolescents who will eventually become the mothers who want their children to survive.How do we make these adolescents a priority?

Medical Detailing: Teaching Providers How to Properly Use and Advocate for Health Care Products

first_imgPosted on May 11, 2015October 26, 2016By: Saundra Pelletier, CEO, Woman Care Global & EvofemClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)I am thrilled to have a discussion about the need for better metrics and measurement for establishing best practices on correct use of maternal health supplies. As organizations focus on global maternal health, we need to evaluate provider practices and use of health supplies in the countries where we work. How are we going to address the gaps without first determining what the gaps are? Are providers short on supply? Do providers choose not to use certain products because of storage requirements? Are providers trained properly on the health supplies they’re being encouraged to use?At Woman Care Global, we use an approach called medical detailing to support providers in the correct use and advocacy of women’s reproductive health supplies. Medical detailing is considered one of the few interventions capable of impacting provider performance. The core theory of medical detailing is to use support and training through frequent contact with providers to develop customized interventions to improve healthcare outcomes. Trained representatives visit medical practitioners regularly to determine the individual provider’s needs, motivations and barriers around the use of medical devices, products or services.We have utilized, and had success with, medical detailing for a program we pioneered called Maximizing Provider Healthcare Performance™, or MAX for short. MAX representatives visit over 300 healthcare providers in Kenya and South Africa to gather information about the care being given to patients. The information is collected on tablets in the field and uploaded. Through a research partner, that data is analyzed to pinpoint which specific interventions lead to enhanced care. The representatives then follow up with each provider to implement the customized interventions indicated in each situation. They also share the provider’s own analyzed data with them each quarter, in order to provide a measurement of changes in service delivery, and to identify and discuss any gaps that may have resulted in decreased performance. The whole aim of the MAX program is to raise the bar on quality care delivery.Now, I can happily talk strategy and create a bunch of flow charts about how the program works, but I want to emphasize one crucial element to the success of medical detailing. We have found the interaction between our MAX medical detailing representatives and the healthcare providers is the predominant determinant of success with both changing provider practices and collecting accurate data. Yes, the representatives are there to gather data, but they also take the time to talk, walk and drink tea with the clinicians we’re trying to reach. These interactions happen very naturally out in the field where trust and true partnership are developed over time. In an era of big data and analytics, we should never underestimate the impact of taking a minute to have a cup of tea and the value of engaging people. On a personal level, I am encouraged by programs that layer emotional intelligence and solid business practices. I am also truly and deeply encouraged by programs that take the first step and recognize that each subsequent step is meaningful.“I long to accomplish a great and noble task; but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” – Helen KellerTeaching providers how to properly use and advocate for health care products is a small task with big potential. Each woman helped will benefit and she will bring those incremental gains back to her family and her community.

Largest stadiums in the world ranked

first_imgGoing to watch the football on matchday is almost always an unforgettable experience, made even more special with the buildup of fan atmosphere, pre-match excitement – and, of course, the sheer magnitude and beauty of the stadium.Football boasts an incredible roster of impressive stadiums and grounds, and sometimes, the utter immensity of them can be overwhelming.Certain stadiums are as iconic as the clubs and teams that they host, with the England national team ‘s home of Wembley Stadium in London and Barcelona’s Camp Nou one of the most famous and historic in the world.

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? Goal rounds up the world’s biggest stadiums in terms of seating capacity, counting down from the top 20.Top 20 largest stadiums in the worldYou might be surprised to learn that the world’s largest stadium is North Korea’s Rungrado 1st of May Stadium, otherwise known as the May Day Stadium.North Korean officials claim that the stadium supposedly has a capacity of 150,000 people, but its real capacity is under 114,000. Even so, it is still the world’s biggest venue by a few thousand.The May Day Stadium’s first event was the 13th World Festival of Youth and Students. It also hosted the 2018 Inter-Korean Summit Pyeongyang.Other notable stadiums include Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia, followed by Barcelona’s home of Camp Nou.South Africa’s FNB Stadium, which hosted several 2010 World Cup games including the final, also makes the top 10, followed by California’s Rose Bowl and London’s Wembley Stadium.

Bernabeu return ‘a unique feeling’ for James

first_imgReal Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez says returning to play at the Santiago Bernabeu was a ‘unique feeling’ despite the team failing to grasp all three points.The 28-year-old started a Madrid match for the first time since May 2017 as Los Blancos drew 1-1 at home to Real Valladolid in La Liga action on Saturday.James spent the last two seasons out on loan with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who opted against triggering their purchase option and instead made a move for Philippe Coutinho. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks 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? The Colombia star looked poised to join either Atletico Madrid or Napoli, however, he has been reintegrated into the first team squad and played 57 minutes for Zinedine Zidane’s men in the Spanish capital.”Back at the Bernabeu after a long time,” James wrote on Twitter post-match.”It was a unique feeling. Thanks to the fans for the support.”We will continue to work in order to improve.”Después de un largo tiempo he vuelto al Bernabéu. Ha sido una una sensación única. Gracias a la afición por el cariño. Seguiremos trabajando para mejorar. pic.twitter.com/xaf0WMOeHI — James Rodríguez (@jamesdrodriguez) August 24, 2019 Despite the return to the starting side, Zidane said after the match that the Colombian was taken off as a precaution against injury.  “James played a good match, he left the pitch because he was a little hurt and we prefer to not take risk,” he told reporters. “But he did a good job, especially in the first half.” Following a 3-1 opening weekend win against Celta Vigo, it looked as Real were headed for two consecutive wins when Karim Benzema put them 1-0 up with eight minutes to play. But Zidane’s side failed to deal with Real Valladolid’s response, as Sergi Guardiola equalised with a low shot under Thibaut Courtois’ body in the 88th minute. James was joined in the first team by another player who was previously expected to leave the club in Gareth Bale. Bale, who was tipped to head to China recently, played 90 minutes but couldn’t match his opening game performance against Celta, when he got an early assist for Benzema. James’ return to the Real first team comes after a previous season in which he made 20 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern, scoring seven goals. He also scored seven league goals in 23 Bundesliga matches during the 2017-18 after helping Madrid to Champions League glory the season prior. Real will attempt to get back on the La Liga winners list with a trip to Villarreal on Sunday before the FIFA international break.last_img read more

The Daav Pech dames

first_img Next The Daav Pech damesVinesh Phogat says more than the sports glory, she is happy to have helped change the mindset in Haryana towards the birth of a girl.advertisement Aasheesh Sharma October 11, 2019UPDATED: October 11, 2019 12:04 IST Cousins Vinesh and Babita Phogat. While Vinesh is preparing for the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Babita will contest Haryana state Assembly elections this month on a BJP ticket.At the turn of the century, one of the biggest perceptible shifts in gender imbalances in the country was brewing in Balali, a non-descript village in Haryana, a deeply conservative state till then infamous for female infanticide. The man who ushered in this revolution was Mahavir Singh Phogat, a burly former grappler, who chose to train his daughters and his niece in the art of wrestling.Today, his niece Vinesh Phogat is one of India’s biggest medal hopes going into the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The achievements of his daughters Geeta and Babita inspired a blockbuster biopic that popularised a slogan that strikes at the heart of gender bias: Mhari chhoriya chhoron se kam hai ke? (Are my daughters any less than sons?) mouthed by Aamir Khan while essaying Mahavir’s character. The elder sister, Geeta Phogat, after becoming the first Indian wrestler to qualify for an Olympics and striking gold at the Commonwealth Games, 2010, was conferred with an Arjuna Award. Her younger sibling Babita was crowned Commonwealth gold medal winner twice, at Glasgow, 2014 and Gold Coast, 2018. Now Babita has been fielded as the Bharatiya Janata Party candidate from Dadri in the state assembly elections to be held this month.Today, the Phogat family is the star of Haryana’s sports universe and Mahavir has been made sarpanch of his village but he had to fight deep-set patriarchy to reach here. “In 2000, when I saw Karnam Malleswari win a medal in the Olympics, I first thought of training the girls in my family. But at that time I faced resistance from the village elders and even my own relatives. They said I was bringing a bad name to the family by letting them play a sport not meant for women, but I thought, if a woman can become Prime Minister of India, why can’t she become a wrestler?” says Phogat. “Before the 2010 Commonwealth victories of my daughters there were few women wrestlers in the country. Today, there are at least 50 akharas in Haryana that exclusively train women wrestlers. I am proud to say my family has already given three Olympian wrestlers to the country.”advertisementVinesh Phogat says the village elders jeered at them when they went to practise in the akhara and the women in the family began to worry if they would get married. “Cutting your hair or wearing shorts to become a wrestler was looked down upon. But success is the biggest revenge. Today, the same neighbours who were reluctant to accept us want their daughters to emulate the Phogat sisters and bring glory to the village.”More than the sporting glory, says Vinesh, she is happy they have played a part in changing mindsets in rural Haryana. “Instead of undergoing sex-selective abortions, the birth of a girl child is now celebrated. The government and the panchayat go out of their way to encourage girls to venture outdoors and play sport.”This may just be the beginning. In case Vinesh brings home an Olympic medal, a thousand new all-girl akharas may bloom in the country.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Guardiola: Man City players will be kept in the fridge

first_imgPep Guardiola has a plan to make sure his Manchester City players cope with playing twice in less than 48 hours in December: “Go home, open the fridge and get inside.”The reigning champions have been dealt a tricky hand over the festive period following fixture changes for live television coverage, with their trip to Wolves now starting at 19:45 local time on December 27.They then welcome Sheffield United to the Etihad Stadium on December 29, that game kicking off at 18:00, before a home match against Everton on January 1, 2020. Editors’ Picks 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 Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career Asked what he can do to combat such a quick turnaround between travelling to Molineux and hosting the Blades before the turn of the year, Guardiola replied: “Players to the fridge. I’m not joking.”Go home, open the fridge and get inside for 48 hours. See you at the Etihad Stadium [on December 29].”When I open the fridge to make an omelette, maybe I can talk with my players. But apart from that, no way.”It happened in my first season here. I think we played on December 31 at Anfield and then at home against Burnley [on January 2].”Before needing to be concerned about Christmas plans, however, Guardiola and his squad must focus on closing the gap to a red-hot Liverpool side in the coming weeks.After missing out by a solitary point in a thrilling title race in 2018-19, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have started the new Premier League season with eight successive wins.City, in contrast, have suffered defeats to Norwich City and Wolves to sit eight points off the pace in second. However, Guardiola understands there is still a long way to go, particularly with Aymeric Laporte set to bolster the squad with a return from a knee injury early in 2020.”For 11 years, no team in England has won back-to-back [titles]. It is difficult, of course it is,” the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss told the media ahead of the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.”But you have a rival that is unstoppable right now. Eight games, eight wins. We lost games, but in Spain the big clubs lost games, in Italy the big clubs lost games, here we are facing one team who are champions of Europe and didn’t lose one game.”It’s difficult. In some games we could win but we didn’t win. Our mistakes punished us a lot. During the season there are ups and downs. We try to get better and improve.”From tomorrow [Saturday] and in the Champions League, we try to make an incredible step forward, to win the game against Atalanta [on Tuesday], then in February Laporte will be back, most of the players will be back.”We will see what happens in the later stages. Normally, when you win what we have won the last two seasons and you arrive in March and April being there, after that it’s more difficult to drop points. But, in the earliest stages of the season, sometimes it’s normal.”last_img read more

Hachimura leads No. 4 Gonzaga over San Diego 85-69

first_img “Nothing comes easy in February,” Few said. “I like the way we played down the stretch.”Zach Norvell Jr. added 21 points for Gonzaga (21-2, 8-0), which won its 12th consecutive game since a pair of December losses knocked it from the No. 1 spot in The AP Top 25.“We knew it was going to be a dogfight,” Norvell said.Josh Perkins and Brandon Clarke each added 12 points for Gonzaga, which outscored the Toreros 38-18 in the paint.Isaiah Pineiro tied a career high with 30 points and added 11 rebounds for San Diego (15-8, 4-4), one of the surprise teams in the league this season. Isaiah Wright added 16 points. “Pineiro had it going,” Norvell said. “He had a lot of clear looks in the first half.”Hachimura sank 11 of 15 shots and added seven rebounds, and finished one point shy of tying his career high.“He earned everything he got,” Few said. “They are a tough team to score on. He understood he had to go through physicality and being body bumped to deliver,” Few said, noting the Toreros pressed the entire game.”The Toreros were undone by 17 turnovers, and shot 46 percent to 53.7 percent for Gonzaga. They also played without injured guard Olin Carter III for the fifth straight game. SPOKANE — San Diego always seems to play Gonzaga tough, making the Bulldogs work for yet another victory.Rui Hachimura scored 32 points and No. 4 Gonzaga pulled away to beat San Diego 85-69 on Saturday night to go undefeated through the first half of the conference season.“We made plays defensively,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. “We got some critical stops multiple times in a row, which we call kills. We took care of the ball.”The game was close most of the way, until Gonzaga got some separation in the second half.

Seahawks turn lack of picks into avalanche of 11 selections

first_imgSeahawks turn lack of picks into avalanche of 11 selections Most players picked were for defense RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks started the week of the NFL draft with the fewest picks of any team in the league with four.They ended up making 11 picks by the time the draft wrapped up on Saturday, tied for the second-most in the league and topped only by the 12 picks from Minnesota.Seattle general manager John Schneider was at it again, making seven trades to move around and turn the concern over the lack of picks into an avalanche of selections for a team that appears on the cusp of again being a contender in the NFC.“This was not a draft we had big holes. We didn’t feel like that,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “We were able to look at the guys and see who was coming down the pike. … This feels like one of those rosters we had four or five years ago, about five years ago, that it really felt like there were guys on our team that other people are going to want, and that’s a good spot to be in.” How they didThe seven trades yielded the Seahawks quantity, which was crucial for a team trying to develop young, competitive depth. It was the formula the Seahawks used to be Super Bowl champions at one time. The picks of Collier and Metcalf are important, but the fourth-round picks of Jennings, Haynes and Amadi may end up being the difference in whether this draft class is great or just OK. Seattle could have landed a future starting wide receiver, offensive lineman and free safety or nickel cornerback out of that trio.What’s next?Seattle still needs help on the defensive line, but the decision to trade Frank Clark opened enough salary cap space that the Seahawks could take the chance on a number of free agents on a one-year, prove-it type of deal to see if they can find a couple of options to help make up for the loss of Clark. The additions of Collier and Christmas make it clear a pass-rush specialist will be the priority. Seattle needs another quarterback with only two on the roster, a tight end and potentially another cornerback.

Collier in the first round and safety Marquise Blair in the second round. But Seattle’s five picks on offense included three wide receivers, headlined by D.K. Metcalf.Who they gotSeattle appeared to accomplish a number of its goals. Along with Collier, Blair and Metcalf, Seattle landed two linebackers in a deep class in Cody Barton and Ben Burr-Kirven. Along with Metcalf, Seattle got Gary Jennings and John Ursua at wide receiver. The secondary was bolstered by Ugo Amadi and the line of scrimmage added guard Phil Haynes and defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas.Surprise moveThere was shock that Metcalf was still available at the end of the second round, prompting Schneider to make the rare decision to move up and land the big wide receiver who dominated pre-draft workouts. But the surprise was Seattle’s decision to use two picks on linebackers. Barton and Burr-Kirven were both stars in the Pac-12, but their picks were curious considering the depth the Seahawks already had at linebacker. Seattle is set among its starters with Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks, so both Barton and Burr-Kirven will have to make an impact on special teams initially to make the roster.“I know that I’m a guy that is hopefully going to be a core special teamer for them and go down and do the dirty work, cover kicks, block, all that kind of stuff. I think that’s where it starts,” Burr-Kirven said.center_img By TIM BOOTH, Associated Press Receive latest stories and local news in your email: Published: April 28, 2019, 1:09pm GO Share:last_img read more

Blazers to face one less star as West finals open vs Warriors

(AP Photo/John Leyba) Photo Gallery Receive latest stories and local news in your email: Published: May 13, 2019, 5:55pm Follow The Columbian on Instagram By JANIE McCAULEY, Associated Press Golden State showed it can win without KD: Stephen Curry came alive at last in the second half of the clincher at Houston, scoring all 33 of his points after the break.Curry and Splash Brother Klay Thompson will look to build off strong performances in that final game against the Rockets to lead the top-seeded Warriors. The two-time defending champions are seeking a fifth straight trip to the NBA Finals.They will face another formidable backcourt with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum when the best-of-seven series begins Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.There are several intriguing storylines in this matchup, too, like Portland star Lillard coming home to Oakland with a chance to shine on the big stage in the final season at Oracle before the Warriors move across the bay to play in San Francisco next season.

Share: Blazers to face one less star as West finals open vs Warriors Durant likely out for Game 1 and 2center_img FAMILY AFFAIRCurry texted his little brother over the weekend to let him know they’d see each other soon. Yes, wearing opposite jerseys for the Western Conference Finals.The Currys have played many times, just not on the postseason stage.“He said, ‘I’ll see you Tuesday.’ I’m looking forward to it,” said Seth, who’s in his first season with Portland. “It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s hard to believe right now. So many years I’ve watched Steph play in the Western Conference Finals, the NBA Finals, being in the crowd. It’s going to be fun to be out there on the court, competing, to get to that final. It’s a dream come true for us, but our families are going to have a lot of fun as well.”Even if a tad bit torn. Their parents will flip a coin, with Dell and Sonya each sporting one son’s gear depending on the result.Their sister, Sydel, posted on Twitter shortly after the Blazers won: “Engage….#NeutralNancy lol.”“I just know watching Seth play I get nervous watching him like on TV and stuff,” Stephen said after practice Monday. “For them, it’s family and parents who supported us all the way through the ranks. Now to be in a situation like this where I guess it’s technically a win-win for them, they’re going to the finals regardless, but it’s kind of crazy to think we’re all on this stage and get to play in front of our family and just the amount of happiness and joy that comes with that is crazy.” REST FACTORGolden State finished off the Rockets in Houston on Friday night, so the Warriors got some rest this time after a quick turnaround following a six-game series in the first round against the Clippers in which they had to play again about 40 hours later.Injured Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins has used the time to continue his rehab from a torn left quadriceps muscle suffered in Game 2 of the first round against the Clippers. It’s unclear yet whether he might be able to return this round.TURNOVERS AND REBOUNDINGThe Warriors struggle when they get sloppy — and it’s a fine line of being chaotic when it works so well and when they become careless and it’s costly.Portland took good care of the ball in Game 7 committing just four turnovers.On the rebounding front, Golden State won three games when it outrebounded the Rockets and another — Game 6 — despite a disadvantage on the boards. “This is arguably the biggest win that we’ve had in the franchise for a long time. To be a part of it, to do it the way we did, I’m thrilled,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “I’m really happy for our guys. As a coach, I think you experience the joy of the team, having different guys come in.”Here are some things to watch as the Warriors join the Lakers as the only teams to reach at least five straight Western Conference Finals:LILLARD’S CHANCEOn Dec. 27, in Lillard’s final regular season game at Oracle — about a 15-minute walk from where he grew up — the Blazers star hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left in overtime and scored 21 points in a 110-109 win.“That’s a hell of a way to go out,” Lillard said.Reaching the NBA Finals might top that.Hold that thought, Thompson said.“Has he had a lot of wins in Oakland?” Thompson cracked Monday. “It’s playoff time. He has had good games. Yeah, he’s a great player. There’s a history between us obviously, the franchises, we’ve seen them a lot the last five years. They’re playing great. They’re on a roll, our antennas are definitely up.” OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Durant watched from home in the Bay Area as the Golden State Warriors finished off James Harden and the Houston Rockets on the road.The two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP has a bit more cheerleading to do before he gets back on the court.Durant is likely to miss Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers while he recovers from a strained right calf. Durant was injured in Game 5 against Houston.“Everyone needs to slow down a little bit on the Kevin stuff. He hasn’t even stepped on the floor yet,” coach Steve Kerr said Monday, a day before Game 1, noting a more extensive update would come Thursday. The Blazers had 55 rebounds in the clincher, with Kanter grabbing five on the offensive glass.AP Sports Writer Pat Graham in Denver contributed to this report. GO 3 Photos And how about the Curry brothers? Steph’s little brother, Seth, plays for the Trail Blazers.The Warriors swept the Blazers in the first round two years ago during a remarkable 16-1 postseason run.Lillard missed his first six 3-point tries Sunday then swished one midway through the fourth when Portland needed him most. The Trail Blazers overcame a 17-point deficit on Denver’s home court to outlast the Nuggets for a 100-96 win.They have reached their first conference final since 2000, when Portland lost in seven games to Kobe Bryant and the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers. FASTING KANTERAn extremely thirsty Enes Kanter loaded up his backpack with five or six bottles of Gatorade after Game 7 — for later.The Trail Blazers center avoids food and drink from sunrise to sunset as part of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. It was that way for the last three games of the Denver series and will be that way during the Golden State series.Kanter said he reached out to NBA great Hakeem Olajuwon for advice on performing in the playoffs while fasting during Ramadan.“The game of basketball is mental over physical so I think I’ll be fine for this stretch,” Kanter said.last_img read more

Viking Cruises Celebrates Summer of Culture with New Partnerships

first_imgWith Continued Focus on Cultural Enrichment, Viking Partners with Libera Boys Choir, Ballet Sun Valley and the Hollywood Bowl   Los Angeles (August 8, 2017) – Viking Cruises® (www.vikingcruises.com) today announced it has expanded its portfolio of partnerships with premier cultural institutions, with a summer season of events around the country. Viking has signed on to sponsor the United States tour of the acclaimed English boys choir, LIBERA, and the Ballet Sun Valley international festival this summer. The company has also extended its sponsorship of the Los Angeles Philharmonic at The Hollywood Bowl for the fifth consecutive season. These new partnerships build on Viking’s commitment to drive cultural insight and personal enrichment, with current partners that include National Geographic’s “Genius,” PBS’ MASTERPIECE, TED, The Metropolitan Opera, BBC, Highclere Castle, RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Oslo’s Munch Museum, St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, among others. “Viking’s commitment to cultural exploration extends far beyond the walls of our ships,” said Karine Hagen, Senior Vice President of Viking Cruises. “One of the best ways to explore a destination – whether at home or abroad – is through its music and cultural institutions. We are proud to support world renowned organizations, such as the Libera Boys Choir, Ballet Sun Valley and The Los Angeles Philharmonic, that align with our goal to create special connections between travelers and the cultures of the world.” Celebrating 20 years of innovation and growth in 2017, Viking’s summer of cultural programming arrives on the heels of high acclaim for its immersive destination-focused offerings, having recently been named a #1 Ocean Cruise Line and one of the Best River Cruise Lines by Travel + Leisurereaders in the 2017 World’s Best Awards. Continuing its commitment to cultural exploration both onboard and off board, Viking’s summer sponsorships include: LIBERA Boys Choir U.S. Tour: In celebration of their new album Hope, the acclaimed English boys choir that participated in the 2016 christening of Viking Sea in London, is currently on a Viking-sponsored five-city U.S. tour. Three-time Classical BRIT nominees, LIBERA is among the top selling classical artists worldwide in countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea and the Philippines, and their work holds a place alongside major artists such as Bocelli. Viking Founder and Chairman Torstein Hagen, a supporter of classical music in its many forms, and a group of Viking colleagues from its headquarters, recently attended the choir’s performance in Westlake Village, Calif. For more information, visit www.libera.org.uk.Ballet Sun Valley Summer Festival, featuring Xander Parish: Viking is the lead sponsor of the Ballet Sun Valley international festival, which runs August 21-24 and features dancers from six of the world’s leading ballet companies, including the American Ballet Theatre and London’s Royal Ballet. This unique festival was curated by Sun Valley-native and American Ballet Theatre dancer, Isabella Boylston, and will showcase a world premiere by emerging choreographer Gemma Bond, whose piece was inspired by the solar eclipse happening the day before the first performance. The one-night only world premiere on August 24 will feature video design by Kate Duhamel and a live orchestra under the direction of Maestro Martin West. Xander Parish, a close friend to Viking – and the first Briton to be promoted to principal dancer with the Mariinsky Ballet – will be performing in several “Mixed Repertoire” performances during Ballet Sun Valley. The historic Mariinsky Theatre, upon whose stages have debuted the masterpieces of such great composers as Peter Tchaikovsky, is home to the world-renowned Mariinsky Ballet, Opera and Orchestra. Guests on Viking’s river cruises through Russia have for years enjoyed onboard performances by Mariinsky singers through Viking’s Privileged Access program—and now many of Viking’s ocean cruises also feature similar performances. For more information on Ballet Sun Valley, visitwww.balletsunvalley.com.Los Angeles Philharmonic at The Hollywood Bowl: For the fifth consecutive year, Viking is sponsoring six Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts at their historic summer home, The Hollywood Bowl. The Viking concert series, beginning August 10, features music by European composers whose home countries are destinations on many of Viking’s river and ocean cruise itineraries, including Antonio Vivaldi (Italy), Pyotr Tchaikovsky (Russia), Wolfgang Mozart (Austria), Ludwig van Beethoven (Germany), and Johann Sebastian Bach (Germany). For more information, visit www.laphil.com.  The Viking DifferenceDesigned for discerning travelers with interests in history, art, music and cuisine, Chairman Torstein Hagen often says Viking offers guests the “thinking person’s cruise” as an alternative to mainstream cruises. The Viking difference provides guests with extraordinarily well-designed cruises that facilitate engagement with other guests and with the cultures of the world. Ships are small to get guests closer to their destinations, with more time in port and more overnights. Onboard, guests find serene Scandinavian spaces, where every room is beautiful and functional, quiet and filled with light. With the most al fresco dining on the rivers and at sea, featuring regional cuisines and always-available American classics, Viking’s guests can truly dine in their destination. A focus on cultural enrichment brings immersive experiences onshore and onboard. And only The Viking Way brings guests itineraries that feature Local Life, Working World and Privileged Access experiences. In addition, Viking Inclusive Value provides a small ship experience and no nickel-and-diming – with every cruise fare including an exterior stateroom, a complimentary shore excursion in each port of call, all onboard meals, and all port charges and government taxes. Guests also enjoy many complimentary amenities as part of their fare, including: beer and wine with lunch and dinner service; Wi-Fi; and coffee, tea and bottled water available 24 hours a day. Viking’s ocean guests also enjoy additional complimentary amenities, including: dining in alternative restaurants, self-service laundry; access to the Thermal Suite in the LivNordic Spa; and 24-hour room service.   About Viking CruisesViking Cruises was founded in 1997 with the purchase of four ships in Russia. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017, Viking is the leader in river and small ship ocean cruising, offering destination-focused itineraries designed for experienced travelers who have an interest in geography, culture and history. In its first two years of operation, Viking has been rated a #1 ocean cruise line in Travel + Leisure’s 2016 and 2017 “World’s Best” Awards. Viking currently operates a fleet of 62 vessels, offering scenic cruising on rivers and oceans around the world. By 2022 the company will operate eight 930-guest ocean cruise ships and will be the largest small ship ocean cruise line. In addition to the Travel + Leisure honors, Viking has also been honored multiple times on Condé Nast Traveler’s “Gold List” as well as recognized by Cruise Critic as “Best Overall” Small-Mid size ship in the 2017 Cruisers’ Choice Awards, “Best River Cruise Line” and “Best River Itineraries,” with the entire Viking Longships® fleet being named “Best New River Ships” in the website’s Editors’ Picks Awards.

On Your Mark Craft Brew Races Are Back for 2019

first_imgWhat you really want at the finish line is a craft beer to quench your post-race thirst. But why enjoy one beer, when you could end your race at the entrance to an entire beer festival?

Craft Brew Races/Facebook Previous center_img Craft Brew Races targets runners and beer fans alike, combining a laid-back 5k race with a full-on beer festival waiting for you at the end. And that beer festival isn’t an afterthought. Featuring more than 30 breweries, many of them local, along with live music and food trucks, it’s an entertaining and unique addition to the usual race circuit.Matt Gray, founder of Craft Brew Races, is a veteran promoter of races and beer festivals — but originally as standalone entities. From working these seemingly disparate events, he found there was an opportunity to combine them. “There is a great crossover in people between beer and running,” says Gray. “They go hand in hand and they always have, but the craft beer movement allowed us to have this opportunity.”For the 2019 season, Craft Brew Races will be hitting four cities around the U.S. The race calendar kicks off May 4 in Worcester, Massachusetts, and concludes on August 10 in Portland, Maine. In between, Newport, Rhode Island, and Stowe, Vermont, host runs through the spring and summer.Just remember, this isn’t a Beer Mile. You get to go at your own pace and enjoy that hard-earned beer at the end, not during your run. (Though if you’re looking for more information on the Beer Mile, check out the official resource here.)Find more information on Craft Brew Races as well as events near you at the Craft Brew Races website. Some people run races for the medals. Some run for the exercise. But increasingly, some run for the beer, too. Each year, runners crowd the starting lines of community “fun runs,” marathons, and even long distance ultras, motivated by a special cold brew (or three) waiting at the finish line.While hearty stouts and hop-bursting IPAs are full of flavor, they also have their fair share of calories. This makes craft beer and racing a smart combination. As racers log enough miles to collect those coveted distance-racing car stickers, they’re also creating a furnace to burn off the extra calories and ward off the beer belly.Beer and running are such a popular pair, it’s common now to cross a finish line and be handed your medal, a banana, and a beer. But too often, that free post-run beer is a watered down, unexciting macro brand. After all that hard work, who wants a sub-par brew? 1 of 2 2019 finishers medals are IN. THE.

Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.Set the roasting pan in the lower third of the oven and roast 2.5 hours.Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until reduced and syrupy.After the ham has baked for 2.5 hours brush it with some glaze. Continue roasting and brushing with the glaze every 15 minutes until the ham is glossy and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham (without touching the bone) registers 140 degrees F, about 1-1.5 hours longer. Remove from the oven and let rest 20-30 minutes before slicing.How to Cook Ham in a Crock-PotCrock Pot/FacebookIf you’ve got the time, Crock-Pot ham is worth the wait (it’s also going to be the name of my future jug band). Aside from all the hours invested in the process, it couldn’t be much easier. Feel free to try your own recipes (brown sugar rubs working particularly well for Crock-Pot ham), but this recipe I’m laying out is the easiest and one of the tastiest I’ve ever had. For this, get a precooked ham with as few spices listed as possible — ideally with none. There will be salt aplenty thanks to the curing, of course.Ingredients:2 liters of root beerMethod:Put ham in slow cooker and set to low.Pour in just enough root beer to cover the ham.Cook for 4 to 6 hours.Enjoy oh so much.Here’s a fun idea: Don’t immediately tell your diners how you flavored the ham. Instead, sit back and chortle as they rattle off various spices and herbs while trying to sound all gourmet and whatnot, then show ’em that empty two-liter.How to Cook Ham on a FireFiorella Macor/EyeEm/Getty ImagesCampfire cooking is fun as long as you bring along all the stuff you need (or the campfire you’re using happens to be in your backyard). You can cook a raw ham using this method, but let’s play it safe and use a precooked ham. No need for it to be smoked — you’re doing that yourself.Ingredients:.5 cup pineapple juice2 tbsp Dijon mustard.5 medium onion, dicedMethod:Build up a decent campfire. Let it burn down low.Meanwhile, lay out two three-foot-long strips of tinfoil side by side, with plenty of overlap, and place the ham in the middle.Partially wrap the ham in foil, then spread on the mustard.Pour in the juice, then sprinkle onions all around.Tightly wrap the ham in foil, then move aside the coals. If possible, use a shovel to dig down about four inches into the soil, but this is not necessary.Place wrapped ham in the coal bed, then move the coals back atop and build the fire back up to a smaller two or three-log size. Keep a modest fire burning for about one hour.Then tuck into that wild-made, wildly-good ham. If you want, you can also cook potatoes, carrots, and other fine eats in there at the same time. Try other juices too. Or soda.Article originally published by Steven John on August 2, 2018. Last updated by Sam Slaughter. So, it’s almost Easter and you want to know how to cook ham? Well, you’re not alone. For some reason, cooking this most savory, succulent of meats proves daunting to many otherwise-competent cooks. I’m here to assure you that cooking ham can be easy and even enjoyable — you just have to take your time with it.Before we get into it, I want to clear up a common conundrum: Do you actually know the difference between pork and ham? Pork simply refers to meat from a pig. Just like hamburger, chuck, and ribeye are all beef, bacon, short ribs, and a side of ham are all pork. Ham refers specifically to pork carved from the rump or rear legs of the pig. (That bone in your bone-in ham is a thighbone.)Genevieve Poblano/The ManualFor the record, most ham you buy from the supermarket is already cooked and is ready to be heated and served or even sliced and enjoyed cold. But we’re not here to talk about slicing and serving, we’re here to talk about starting with ham and ending with a culinary masterpiece — a pig de résistance, to quote The Simpsons. For our purposes, we’re going to assume you are cooking with a ham that weighs about 10 to 12 pounds. If it’s much smaller, you’ll need to shorten cooking times; if larger, then add time. When you’re using a raw ham, don’t mess around with interior cooking temperatures. Get it 160 degrees Fahrenheit (if you’re using a pre-cooked ham, you simply need to get it to a good temperature to warm the meat, which would be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit).How to Cook Ham in the Oven How to Clean a Fish: A Quick Reference Guide center_img How to Cook Steak in the Oven Editors’ Recommendations How to Cure Prosciutto at Home last_img read more

The Evolution and History of the Home Stereo

first_img 7 of the Best Drink References in Music 12 Classic Sci-Fi Novels Everyone Who Likes Reading Should Read Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App With well over a century in the making, the home stereo has brought tantalizing airwaves into households for everyone to enjoy while sitting on the couch, providing ambiance to an otherwise mundane gathering, and even fueling spontaneous dance parties. Certainly with technological advances the music quality has dramatically increased along with accessibility and the design of home stereos. But the radio, CD, cassette, and Bluetooth sorcery wouldn’t have come to be without the evolution of the record player.Record PlayerMaciej Toporowicz/Getty ImagesTurn the dial back to 1877 to when Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. It was more like a recorder than a player, but it did have playback capabilities. The sound was recorded on a tinfoil sheet wrapped around a cylinder that could eventually be played back through a horn-shaped speaker, similar to how a player piano ghostly plays the keys. In 1895 the phonograph was updated to play sound from flat discs that we now call vinyl, and the design took close shape to the modern record player. This was the point in history when records became a necessity for sound and leisure listening. The popularity of the record player grew right along with music culture, booming in the ‘20s, spinning through the blues, and eventually falling into the hands of the ‘80s/’90s DJs and their manipulative powers. And now in 2019, the record player and/or turntable is finding its way back into homes across the globe with artists choosing to release new music on vinyl, audiophiles claiming the purest sounds come from the grooved discs, and the revolution of hipsters deciding the record player was cool — again.RadioVedrana Sucic/EyeEm/Getty ImagesAs the world continued to evolve, the 1920’s radio waves proved to be a source of information and household entertainment. Families would gather in the den or living room, huddled around initially large vacuum tubes to listen to news broadcasts, weekly Thursday night concerts, and variety shows like the Prairie Home Companion or Abbot and Costello. And just as Napster proved to be a huge thorn in the music industry, the radio was thought to kill off the record player and cut into sales and profits because radio was a free medium that allowed the public to listen to music. The home radio was also revolutionary in quickly relaying critical information, simultaneously making entertainment and music available to millions, and in the humblest way, bringing families and friends together around a big ole box.Cassette TapeRyan J. Lane/Getty ImagesIntroduced around the 1970s and generally paired with a Hi-Fi system or Component Stereo, the cassette tape was next in line for aural pleasure. It was smaller than vinyl and the 8-track while offering hi-fi sound, the option to fast forward or rewind, and the capability of recording your very own mixtape. Similar to the radio, the cassette tape eventually became handheld and found its way into cars, but at home, it was a modern marvel amplifying sound quality and offering almost instantaneous song selection. The cassette’s playback time was far superior to earlier music platforms and allowed the listener to indulge for hours. And to say you never made a mixtape of your own or for that special someone, well that’s simply preposterous.CD (Compact Disc)PNC/Getty ImagesBorn in the ‘90s and living through the mid-2000s, the forefather to the digital music age was the compact disc. It was intended to be the successor to vinyl but proved to change the framework of the music industry as we know it. Using laser technology to digitally store music on the disc, the CD delivered better sound quality than all predecessors. Collections became staples of home decor accompanied by bigger speakers and surround sound. The CD’s music quality pushed speaker technology to catch up and monumental home stereo consoles became just as important as the original projector big-screen TVs. The single-disc player became the multi-disc, the multi-disc became the 6-disc player and with the added technology of skipping from track to track, the CD stereo became the first truly personal audio device. If it wasn’t your jam, it wasn’t played.MP3 and the AUX CordSpike Mafford/Getty ImagesY2K brought fear, disappointment, and the MP3 player. The revolutionary digitally formatted players came in an assortment of colors, sizes, and a bounty of favorable names. The RIO, Zen, and iPod were just a handful of the options, but when connected to your stereo receiver, you became the DJ. Never before had the music selection been yours, with days of playback, and customizable playlists that assured aural pleasure. The MP3 players could be carried in your pocket and once you made it back home to the after-party, all you had to do was find the AUX cord and any stereo was now a personal jukebox.Bluetooth and StreamingAleksandar Nakic/Getty ImagesNowadays the home stereo is wherever you are. Speakers are placed around the house, carried in your pack, and even turned on by the sound of your voice. And where does the music come from, generally from your ever-present smartphone with Bluetooth connection and one of the many audio streaming services. The turntable, cassette, and CD all can still be a part of your stereo system but unlike previous decades, everything is connected wirelessly. With platforms like SONOS, the ECHO, and Spotify you can almost seamlessly walk from room to room with your music following your every footstep. You can play Dr. Dre and Biggie in the kitchen while Janis Joplin and Toots and the Maytals serenade the living room, all with the simplicity of a finger’s touch.

New Brunswick Medical Society launches campaign cautioning against marijuana use

first_imgFREDERICTON – The president of the New Brunswick Medical Society issued a warning Monday that the coming legalization of marijuana in Canada doesn’t mean that it is safe and the public needs to know the risks of consuming pot.“There’s somewhat of a normalization around marijuana use and I think some of the public really don’t understand there are significant health concerns associated with marijuana use,” Dr. Lynn Murphy-Kaulbeck said Monday.The medical society is launching a public education campaign on the health risks associated with marijuana consumption, ahead of Ottawa’s commitment to make pot legal across Canada by July 2018.Murphy-Kaulbeck said too often governments only look at the financial gains without looking at the long-term impact.“It’s very much like smoking or alcohol — you have your tax and your revenue from that, but down the road there’s great cost that comes with treating all the effects that come from these substances,” she said.She said the health risks inherent with the use of marijuana are clear, particularly for people under the age of 25, and include addiction, worsening of substance abuse and attention deficits.“Marijuana use up to that point does have the potential to affect brain development. As well, the research does show the use of marijuana can be related in young people to psychiatric disorders,” she said.The society has created a new web site — www.LegalNotSafe.ca — to highlight the various health impacts associated with marijuana consumption.Murphy-Kaulbeck said the society will also be using different social media platforms, such as Facebook, to spread its message. It has also posted an editorial on the medical society’s main website.Earlier this year, the society released a position paper with 14 recommendations to government.It said it would prefer marijuana not be sold to anyone under the age of 25, but recognizes that’s unrealistic. It said it would accept the age of 21.The New Brunswick government’s Select Committee on Cannabis is conducting hearings around the province in advance of setting regulations governing the sale of marijuana.The medical society will appear before that committee on Friday in Fredericton.last_img read more

Prime minister promised new timeline on TMX pipeline in weeks Alberta premier

first_imgCALGARY – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says the federal government has promised a fast-track timeline to resume construction on the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.“The prime minister pledged to me that a clear and reliable timeline to resume construction will be established within weeks, not months,” Notley told reporters Thursday after a meeting with officials and oil industry leaders.“We’ve both instructed our officials to get to work immediately and burn the midnight oil on that task.”Notley made the comments after she met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day earlier in Edmonton.Notley said she is satisfied Trudeau is committed to getting the project back online in good time, and her government is willing to work with him to make it happen.But she said she expects fast action from Ottawa given the investor uncertainty that has rippled out in all directions from last week’s Federal Court of Appeal decision on the project.“We must find a solution to this problem quickly. We cannot let it just sit on the vine,” she said.The Trans Mountain expansion project would triple the capacity of the existing line, which takes oil products from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C.Alberta says the project is critical and it is losing billions of dollars a year because the oil currently shipped to B.C. is sold at a discount to a captive market in the United States.A week ago, the Federal Court of Appeal Court quashed the project on the grounds that the federal government failed to properly consult Indigenous groups and the National Energy Board did not take into account the impact of increased tanker traffic on marine life, particularly endangered whales.Trudeau has said all options to respond are being looked at, including appealing the decision to the Supreme Court, but has indicated the best path forward is following the dictates of the unanimous court decision.Notley said Thursday that full consultation with Indigenous groups must be carried out, but said it’s critical to the construction timeline that the government fix the marine impact portion while avoiding a lengthy hearing process.She noted the federal government has already done a lot of work to beef up environmental safety measures on the B.C. coast, but that this work was not considered by the National Energy Board.“There are a bunch of ways that the legislation can be changed to address the environmental concerns without kickstarting a whole new hearing process. And that’s what we’re worried about,” said Notley.She said the hearings process “allows for a whole bunch of legal gamesmanship that means no certificate is ever issued.”Last week, Notley urged the federal government to immediately appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. But on Thursday she said while she still believes the decision needs to be challenged, an immediate appeal may hamstring the more pressing issue of getting construction restarted as soon as possible.The $7.4-billion project has become the Crown jewel in a policy espoused by both Notley and Trudeau that the economy and the environment are not mutually exclusive goals but can work hand in glove to achieve a prosperous, sustainable future.To that end, Notley’s government had supported Trudeau’s federal climate change plan, including a tax on carbon, while Trudeau’s government, in a bid to keep the fledgling Trans Mountain pipeline alive, has purchased the existing line, and other assets, outright for $4.5 billion.After the Federal Court decision, Notley pulled her government out of the federal climate plan, saying Alberta will return when it is satisfied the project is back on track.She said Thursday that Alberta will stay out for now, and that its participation in the plan was always contingent on the success of Trans Mountain.— By Dean Bennett in Edmontonlast_img read more

Imperial Oil reports first quarter profit down from year ago raises dividend

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Imperial Oil Ltd. raised its dividend nearly 16 percent as it reported that its first-quarter profit fell compared with a year ago.The Calgary-based energy company says it will now pay a quarterly dividend of 22 cents per share, up from 19 cents.The increased payment to shareholders came as Imperial reported a profit of $293 million or 38 cents per diluted share for its first quarter. That compared with a profit of $516 million or 62 cents per share in the same quarter last year.Rich Kruger, Imperial’s chairman and chief executive, says Alberta’s mandatory production curtailment order significantly affected the company’s financial performance.Kruger says improved upstream realizations were more than offset by reduced downstream margins.last_img read more

UN agency joins forces with United States retailer to end violence against

To end this pervasive human rights violation, we need strong partnerships,” said UNIFEM Executive Director Inés Alberdi, voicing hope that the partnership with Marshalls will further efforts in the US to keep women and girls safe.Along with the US non-governmental organization (NGO) Safe Horizons, actress Leighton Meester and UNIFEM, Marshalls kicked off its activities for Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a promotional event in New York today.As part of its annual “Shop Til It Stops” programme, the retailer will donate $1 for every shoe purchased over the next two weeks in a bid to end domestic violence. 2 October 2008The United States retailer Marshalls has signed on to a United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) campaign to bring an end to violence against women. read more

Further extension and downsizing proposed for UN presence in Nepal

8 January 2009The peace process in Nepal remains a fragile one, with critical agreements on the reintegration of former Maoist combatants still lacking, and will continue to need United Nations assistance, according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who proposes an extension of the UN presence there, albeit at a slightly reduced capacity. In a new report released today, Mr. Ban recommends that the Security Council extend the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) for another six months, as requested by the Nepalese Government, with the Mission being subject to further downsizing from 23 January. UNMIN was established in early 2007 as a special political mission tasked with helping advance the peace process in Nepal, which endured a decade-long civil war that claimed an estimated 13,000 lives until the Government and the Maoists signed a peace deal in 2006. Following landmark elections last April, the newly-formed Constituent Assembly voted in favour of a federal democratic republic, leading to the abolition of the monarchy and the election of Ram Baran Yadav as the country’s first President. In addition to assisting with the elections, UNMIN has also been tasked with the monitoring of the management of arms and armed personnel of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) and the Nepal Army.Mr. Ban, who witnessed the country’s progress firsthand during a visit to Nepal in October of last year, expresses his disappointment at having to “report so little progress regarding the issues most relevant to the mandate of UNMIN. “It is particularly regrettable that the political parties have to date failed to reach agreement regarding the special committee to supervise, integrate and rehabilitate the Maoist army personnel so that it can begin its important work,” he states.“That is one important indication of the wider tensions among the political parties, which could imperil the completion of the peace process and the drafting of the Constitution,” he adds.The Secretary-General notes that he and his Special Representative for Nepal, Ian Martin, have repeatedly drawn attention to the fact that an exit strategy for UNMIN requires decisions regarding the future of those in the Maoist army cantonments and have urged that that issue be addressed through the agreed process – the special committee.An advisory team that visited the country last December found that all the Nepalese interlocutors were looking to the UN to play a role in assisting the special committee once it is functioning, and believed that the world body has an important role during the process of integration and rehabilitation, as well as during the discharge of minors and others disqualified by the UNMIN verification process.“It is clear that the United Nations, if it is not to risk jeopardizing the peace process, cannot immediately terminate the support it has been providing through UNMIN as requested by the Government of Nepal,” states the Secretary-General. “But neither can the United Nations be expected to maintain indefinitely the monitoring of arms and armed personnel while the process for deciding the future of the former combatants is further delayed,” he writes. Mr. Ban proposes that the number of arms monitors contributed by Member States should be retained at the strength of 73, authorized when UNMIN was downsized in July 2008, but that most of the 18 remaining civilian posts which have been filled by retired military officers should be abolished as at 23 January 2009. In addition, the Mission’s Political Affairs Office will be further reduced, and a number of other substantive posts eliminated, achieving a reduction of one third in substantive posts. The support services will also be substantially reduced and remaining functions increasingly performed by national staff; international support posts will be approximately halved. Furthermore, with the additional downsizing, UNMIN would be headed by a representative, instead of a special representative of the Secretary-General. read more

CP Rail says striking workers pensions better than most

Raitt has estimated that a prolonged strike by the 4,800 CP Rail works could cost the Canadian economy an estimated $540-million a week.The Teamsters union questioned CP’s intent in putting out figures it called misleading in the middle of bargaining.“We’re actively bargaining here, I don’t even know what they’re doing,” said Teamsters vice-president Douglas Finnson.“I think maybe if they spent as much time bargaining as they did putting out press releases then we might be getting somewhere,” he added.Pensions, as well as work rules and fatigue management remain major points of contention in the bargaining process.But CP Rail insists its employees are well paid and receive better-than-average pensions.For example, the average wage of a CP engineer for road freight is about $108,000, the company said. It added that a Teamsters member working as a road locomotive engineer can have a maximum pension in 2012 of more than $92,600.But Teamsters said no CP unionized employee actually earns that cap, calling the figures provided misleading.“No locomotive engineers are getting $92,600 in pensions, the only people getting $92,600 in pensions are company managers whose income is over $144,000 a year.”Canadian Pacific has temporarily laid-off more than 2,000 other unionized CP employees and another 1,400 could soon join those ranks as their services are no longer needed.Meanwhile, companies that rely on Canadian Pacific Railway to move their products across the country are looking at their alternatives to ship their goods after CP suspended all freight shipments — affecting oil, coal, automotive, fertilizer and lumber industries, among others.Some industry associations have been calling on Ottawa to send CP employees back to work. The pension offer being made to the union representing some 4,800 striking Canadian Pacific Railway employees is better than the industry standard, the company said Friday as contract negotiations continued ahead of looming back-to-work legislation.The railway operator said the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference, which represents workers at CP as well as employees at its chief competitor Canadian National Railway among others, has agreed to the same provisions at other railways that striking workers have been offered.‘CP strongly feels our current pension offer to the Teamsters is fair and reasonable’The union disagrees with CP’s assessment, but the railway operator says an internal analysis suggests the company’s latest offer on pensions, health spending accounts and work rules are equivalent to those the Teamsters have in place with its primary competitor.“CP strongly feels our current pension offer to the Teamsters is fair and reasonable and is better than the rest of the rail industry, including at CN, which has no escalation clause as the CP offer does,” said company spokesman Ed Greenberg.“The Teamsters will not agree to those same changes with CP, but they have taken strike action that is now resulting in CP business shifting to the other more profitable railway where the Teamsters represent employees with lesser pension provisions than we are offering.”[np-related]Greenberg’s comments came on the third full day of a work stoppage at the railway as the union and management continued to negotiate while workers walked the picket line.Labour Minister Lisa Raitt has said the government is prepared to introduce back-to-work legislation as early as Monday if CP and the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference can’t reach a deal.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Fred Chartrand read more

Attacks on relief camps in Liberia leave 4 dead prompt thousands to

On 9 April, the Wilson and Jartondoh IDP camps, which are both located in Montserrado County, the same as the country’s capital, Monrovia, were attacked by groups of armed men. Three civilians are known to have been killed in gunfire in Jartondoh camp and an elderly resident of the Wilson camp was killed when her shelter caught fire after a mortar attack.The majority of Jartondoh camp’s 18,000 residents have fled, as have many from Wilson Camp. At least one aid worker from a non-governmental organization (NGO) was injured in the attacks, others were forced to help the armed groups carry away looted items and two vehicles belonging to NGOs were stolen.”These attacks on civilians are outrageous and are violations of international humanitarian law,” said Carolyn McAskie, the UN Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator. “All parties to the conflict must ensure that attacks on civilians do not occur, and we call on the Government of Liberia to do everything in their power to protect civilians.” read more

Wild camping scheme criticised for being too cosy is dropped by Government

The wild camping initiative has been suspended following criticismCredit:Getty Images Contributor A wild camping scheme funded by the Government has been scrapped after critics said the facilities, including a bar and a yurt, were too cosy.UK Wild Camp was launched last month, promising to transform access to national parks by allowing avid campers the chance to pay £20 a night for a pre-planned spot in a rural idyll.Previously out-of-bounds sites included sheltered spots moments from the South Downs Way and tarn-side idylls in the Lake District.But the private initiative, partially funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), was ridiculed by critics, who branded it “nonsense” and said it went against the spirit of wild camping.Dave Mycroft, editor of outdoors guide My Outdoors, said: “Quite simply, to camp in a location of somebody else’s choosing for a duration of their choosing is not wild camping, it’s camping on a campsite with no facilities.“The ethos of wild camping is to camp somewhere where you’re out of sight of civilisation, including roads and buildings, in a location of your choosing, to camp late, get up early and leave no trace.” Chris Townsend, an outdoor writer and author of The Backpackers Handbook, said: “Camping on the move is about freedom, about stopping when you want, camping where you like. Once you have fixed sites it’s not wild camping.” UK Wild Camp on Monday announced a “rethink” of the scheme, admitting that it had “inadvertently kicked over a hornet’s nest”.“We thought that running a booking scheme for entry-level wild campers, one that would provide them with the security and legitimacy that currently causes them concerns about camping wild, would be understood and welcome by the wider group,” it said. “We now see this is not the case.“With this is mind, we are going to suspend our service and have a rethink about how we might revise it. We won’t describe any future version of our service as ‘wild camping’ because for many of you that specifically means free and unplanned camping.”Nor are we likely to stray into a debate around relaxing the laws on wild camping, because we now understand this is a highly charged area.” The wild camping initiative has been suspended following criticism Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Putin hails Pussy Riot jail terms report

first_imgRUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR Putin hailed the two-year jail sentences against three members of feminist punk band Pussy Riot for staging a performance protesting his rule, according to a report today.“It was right to arrest them, and it was right that the court took the decision that it did,” Putin said in a television programme aired on NTV, Interfax news agency said.The programme was to air in Moscow at this afternoon but was broadcast to audiences in the Russian Far East earlier.“One cannot undermine the moral foundations, break up the country. What would we be left with?” Putin reportedly said of the Pussy Riot performance in a cathedral in Moscow in February that led to their sentence.He also said he had not exerted any pressure in the sentencing of the women. “I had nothing to do with it. They wanted it, and they got it,” Putin was quoted as saying.“My first reaction was to ask believers to forgive them, I thought it would end at that,” Putin reportedly said. But the case was “wheeled up to trial, and the trial slapped a little two years on them,” he said.“It’s important to say tender words on a person’s birthday,” Pussy Riot said in a sarcastic reaction on Twitter to the president’s words. “Putin told our members about the ‘little two years’.”“A little two years there, a little five years there,” opposition leader Alexei Navalny wrote. “Misha got a little eight,” he said, referring to jailed oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s sentence.Donning brightly coloured balaclavas, the group of women on February 21 belted out a “prayer” in the country’s main cathedral, Christ the Saviour, calling on the Virgin Mary to remove Putin.Three Pussy Riot members, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich, were convicted in August of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred, and sentenced to two years in a prison camp.Moscow city court will hear their appeal on Wednesday.Putin celebrated his 60th birthday Sunday, receiving warm wishes from supporters and numerous mentions on state television, but the event aroused derision from critics who since late last year have held regular mass protests against his rule.- © AFP, 2012Read: Pussy Riot appeal delayed by court > Read: Here’s what Vladimir Putin thinks about group sex >last_img read more

Teen who attempted to smuggle Bengal tiger cub into San Diego sentenced

first_img Posted: February 20, 2018 February 20, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Mexico, San Diego Zoo Safari Park FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom Teen who attempted to smuggle Bengal tiger cub into San Diego sentenced to six months in prisoncenter_img KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — An 18-year-old man who tried to smuggle a 6-week-old Bengal tiger cub into San Diego from Mexico was sentenced Tuesday to six months in federal prison.Luis Eudoro Valencia, of Perris, pleaded guilty in December to a charge of conspiracy to import tigers.The defendant admitted that last Aug. 18, he contacted a co-conspirator in Mexico to make arrangements to obtain the tiger cub. Four days later, Valencia got a message from his Mexico contact stating that the cub would be arriving at the Tijuana Airport that night.The following afternoon, when Valencia and a companion entered the United States from Mexico in a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro with no license plates, the tiger cub was on the floor of the vehicle, underneath the legs of the passenger, who told authorities the animal was a cat, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Melanie K. Pierson.Valencia failed to declare the animal, which was promptly seized by border inspectors. The cub was taken to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and named Moka.The defendant told investigators that he had arranged to pay $300 for the tiger cub from a man he saw walking an adult tiger on a leash in Tijuana.Valencia’s attorney said his client wanted the tiger cub as a pet, but prosecutors said cell phone data shows that the defendant was running an animal smuggling business and had boasted about making thousands of dollars by selling monkeys, jaguars and lions.

Update Reeds continue to grow unabated attracting snakes

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite In the three months that have passed since we ran an online story about a burst pipe causing reeds to run rampant in Mrs Sadan’s yard in Second Avenue, Limit Hill, nothing has been done by uThukela to sort out the problem.To reiterate, Mrs Sadan says it’s been four years now that she has been dealing with this problem.Although the leak is outside her boundary fence, the pipe itself runs through her yard, causing water to pool in one particular spot. Because there is so much water in this one spot, it is impossible to cut the reeds down from the ground, as they are growing in a mini lake, so to speak. Therefore, Mrs Sadan is continually cutting them from the top, only to watch them grow again and again, and the vicious cycle never ends.Mrs Sadan says she has been complaining to uThukela District Municipality, as she claims the pipe is their property, but they continue to ignore her appeal for help in this matter. “Water is running through my yard from their pipe, causing these reeds to grow, but no one will help me. This problem has been going on for years now. I feel the situation is very dangerous for my family and my pets, as the reeds attract snakes into the yard. My dogs play in that part of the yard, so they could be bitten,” says a concerned Mrs Sadan.At her wit’s end and not knowing where to turn, all that Mrs Sadan can think to do is carry on pleading with the municipality to come and fix the pipe so she and her family can live without fear of being bitten by a potentially deadly snake.

Peru fights gold fever with fire and military force

first_imgLA PAMPA, Perú – The dynamite crew set the charges and ordered everyone back.They put explosives beneath the miners’ hammocks and in the outdoor kitchen, where potatoes were still hot on the stove. More fuses were placed in the processing shed nearby, which had a blackened torch for melting gold and a rusty barrel of sand laced with mercury.Get down, a police commander said. Mouths open, another shouted. Apparently it was better for the eardrums.The blast snapped with a gust of hot air. Wood planks and shreds of zinc roofing leapt upward and somersaulted down. Toucans and macaws scattered into the tree canopy, squawking in protest.Wearing military fatigues and combat boots, Antonio Fernández, Perú’s top prosecutor for environmental crimes, watched the mining camp burn. This ghostly moonscape of dead stumps and contaminated pits was primary forest just six months ago, he said.“These people have done extraordinary damage,” said Fernández. “We have to respond with the same amount of force.”After years of ignoring the frantic gold rush fouling the Amazon forests of southeastern Perú’s Madre de Dios region, the government has launched a no-mercy campaign to crush it.Since April, it has sent police and soldiers on dozens of helicopter raids, swooping down to blow up equipment and burn mining camps. It has cut fuel supplies to Madre de Dios in an attempt to choke off the miners’ generators, motorbikes and diesel engines, saying per capita fuel consumption in the region is 10 times the national average because their machinery runs round-the-clock. Peruvian National Police and take cover after detonating explosives at an illegal gold mining camp in Peruvian Amazon, in this undated photo. Dominic Bracco II/Prime for The Washington PostThe goal isn’t to bend the miners into legal compliance. It is to drive them out of the jungle entirely. “They don’t belong here,” Fernández said. “They should go home.”As many as 40,000 illegal miners — mostly poor, Quechua-speaking laborers from Peru’s Andean highlands — have invaded some of the most pristine and biologically rich sections of ancient forest in the Amazon basin.In just a few years, they have laid waste to more than 120,000 acres, leaving behind Amazonian deserts of pestilent orange craters that bleed into the rivers when it rains.Dragging their machinery up waterways and along muddy trails, they chain-saw trees to create space for their dredgers, sluices and the clattering vacuum pumps known as “chupaderas” that can open a pit as deep and wide as a five-story building in a matter of weeks.While the damage from illegal mining may not be deforesting the Amazon as fast as cattle ranching and agriculture elsewhere have, the destruction is multiplied by the miners’ poisonous little companion: liquid mercury.They dump it on the sediments they collect to bond with the gold, then vaporize the mercury with torches. It is not a precise industrial process.So toxic is liquid mercury that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends calling a hazardous waste specialist if a spill is larger than a broken thermometer. Exposure can cause neurological damage, birth defects, infertility and other health nightmares.In Madre de Dios, gold miners are putting 30 to 40 tons of the stuff into the rivers each year, according to government estimates. It has leeched into nature reserves, the flesh of widely consumed river fish and three-quarters of the adult hair samples tested in the regional capital, Puerto Maldonado. Peruvian National Police and Marines raid an illegal mine in the Madre de Dios region of the Amazon in a July 9, 2014 photo. An estimated 40,000 illegal miners have laid waste to 120,000 acres in just a few years, cutting down trees and polluting the Amazon with mud and mercury, which is used to separate the gold. Dominic Bracco II/Prime for The Washington PostNobody knows what the long-term consequences will be. Few of the miners are thinking that far ahead.“The gold extends 80 meters down, even deeper,” said Luis Otsuka, the president of the local mining federation, an aggressive man with the slightly crazed look of someone living in a prolonged state of gold fever.Otsuka denounced Peruvian President Ollanta Humala’s campaign against the miners and said the country’s environmental minister “should be killed.”“They are trying to destroy us,” Otsuka said, channeling local outrage at the government into his candidacy for governor of Madre de Dios. “Our country is so rich, and they want to keep us poor.”Peru is the world’s fifth-largest gold producer, and the biggest in Latin America, extracting about $10 billion worth a year. Less than 20 percent comes from the Amazon.Most of the gold is mined in the Andean highland by multinational companies from the United States, Canada, Brazil and China.Jungle gold is different. It has washed down from the mountains in little flecks and chips over millions of years, drifting along alluvial channels with other sediments.Getting it out of the ground isn’t exactly mining in a traditional sense, and there isn’t much geology involved. It’s more like mechanized soil-filtering.Using dredgers and vacuum pumps, miners slurp up the sediments and send them through crude wooden sluice boxes. The heaviest particles, weighty with gold, settle toward the bottom and are collected on strips of carpet.There are no Eureka nuggets or gold seams to strike. The name of the game is volume. The more earth you can suck up and sift out, the more money you make. In a July 9, 2014, photo, children’s toys and play money from a Monopoly game are seen among the debris after a blast set off by Peruvian National Police and Marines at an illegal miners camp in the Madre de Dios region of the Amazon. After years of turning a blind eye to nearly 40,000 illegal miners in the region, Peruvian officials have begun military action to stop the mining and curb further environmental damage. Dominic Bracco II/Prime for The Washington PostGlobal financial jitters sent gold prices soaring in 2008 and 2009, and they’ve stayed relatively high since then. While U.S. television viewers were bombarded with commercials offering cash for unwanted jewelry, Peruvian laborers went racing into the Amazon.A few years earlier, the trip would have been a multi-day journey for someone living in the slums of highland cities like Cuzco and Arequipa. But at the same moment that gold prices jumped, highway crews in Brazil and Perú were finishing the long-awaited Interoceanic Highway, the first and only paved road traversing the Amazon basin.It was meant to boost trade and facilitate Brazilian exports to Asia. Instead, it put millions of poor mountain-folk within a day’s drive of the gold sands.Peruvian laws have long protected small-scale “artisanal” mining, which allows panning with simple, traditional tools. But the artisanal miners who moved on to dredging equipment got rich and bought more machinery.Some of the most stunning damage is here in the area known as La Pampa, where thousands of illegal miners have poured into off-limits forest areas adjacent to the Tambopata nature reserve, home of rare giant river otters and white-lipped peccaries. Enforcement was too weak to stop them.The squalid mining encampments that have popped up overnight make HBO’s “Deadwood” look like a model village.The largest is a warren of tarp-covered shacks and muddy streets that fan out from the Interoceanic Highway into alleys of sludge, sewage and trash. Bars and cantinas with plastic patio furniture and $20 teenage hookers share walls with hardware stores, lube shops and nervous-looking men with scales who buy gold by the gram.It is merely the central supply depot for the miners. Their camps are several miles deeper into the forest.You reach them along dirt paths wide enough only for a motorbike or three-wheel motor cart. Errand boys zip along the trails on dirt bikes, ferrying fuel, food and laborers between the highway and the camps. A self-appointed toll collector charges a small fee to keep the rickety wooden bridges from collapsing into the swamps.There is no police presence or authority. Anyone can arrive with machinery and start digging.The motorcycle path is more like a busy highway, winding through barren wastes that have already been worked over and abandoned.The largest, nicknamed Black Fly, is a sandy plain several miles in diameter. A few dredgers were visible in the distance, nibbling at the fringes. It looked like Nevada had landed in the middle of the rain forest.Other sites along the route were just as obliterated: Mega 11, Mega 12 and Mega 13, each one spanning several football fields.Adding to the gloom were the burned-out encampments that littered the supply route, where government raids had left charred ruins of tarp villages and debris strewn across the sand: plastic jugs, rusty chains, melted toys.After 45 minutes, the big pits appeared. Mud-caked men and boys in shorts and flip-flops scrambled up and down eroding walls of sand, grabbing at exposed tree roots, while their vacuum pumps burrowed into fetid brown puddles at the bottom. Thick hoses ran up to the crater rim, spewing out muddy water and sediments onto wobbly sluices.A few miners were willing to talk and vent anger at the government, which had torched a nearby camp a few days earlier.“Why won’t they let us work?” asked Ricardo Mendoza, 38, guiding a vacuum with a mouth as big as a dinner plate through the muck while his partner rode a pontoon raft, yanking at the levers of a floating dredger.“I have five kids,” said Mendoza. “I just want them to have a better life.”As a farm laborer, he made $10 to $15 a day. Here in La Pampa, he said, he earns five times that.“Extreme profits are never a justification for breaking the law,” Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Perú’s environmental minister, said in an interview. In a July 9, 2014 photo, a dredging machine is seen during a flyover by the Peruvian military in the Tambopata protected reserve of the Amazon rainforest in Peru. Illegal gold miners with dredgers, sluices and vacuum pumps can open a pit as deep and wide as a five-story building in a matter of weeks. After years of ignoring the mining the Peruvian government is using police and military troops to raid and destroy the miners’ camps. Dominic Bracco II/Prime for The Washington PostThe four-month-old campaign against illegal mining has won praise abroad and public support in Lima, Perú’s capital, even as anti-government protests turned deadly in Madre de Dios and the country’s gold output dropped 14 percent after the crackdown.The aerial images of the destruction were too appalling to ignore. They had become a national embarrassment.Pulgar-Vidal and others are pushing to tighten regulations and steer the miners toward more formalized practices and permitting, a process the miners say is a sham.Real enforcement will require more time and more muscle: investigative work, additional prosecutors, and a bigger police and military presence in the gold-rich areas. The government will have to make sure its regulators can’t be bought off as easily as in the past.Despite the helicopter raids and TV-ready demolitions of equipment, Peruvian prosecutors have sent just four illegal miners to prison.Usually there is no one for them to arrest when they land. The miners and their families grab their most valuable machinery and possessions and flee into the forest when the helicopters approach. There isn’t any room for them in the helicopters anyway — one reason the government wants their equipment destroyed on site.“What’s the point of seizing machinery and hauling it out of here if a corrupt judge can just give it right back?” said one military commander leading the raids, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to give interviews.He estimated they had hit about half of the largest illegal sites in La Pampa. When they fly over them a few days later, he said, they often find the camps rebuilt and the dredgers running again.© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Mexico closes 80 schools after 10 million gallons of sulfuric acid poison Sonora River earlier this month Rangers at Costa Rica’s Corcovado National Park use satellite technology to fight illegal gold mining To conserve the Amazon, the forest must become an economic ‘asset’ Even Brazil’s military may not be enough to protect an endangered Amazon tribelast_img read more

Costa Ricas La Sele tops Venezuela 21 in Copa América prelude

first_imgCosta Rica heads into the much-anticipated Copa América Centenario tournament on a high note after a 2-1 win over Venezuela at the National Stadium on Friday.Despite some sloppy play on a rain-drenched field, Costa Rica got a good taste of what it can expect in June’s Copa América.A 50th-minute beauty of a goal from striker Ariel Rodríguez, who substituted in at the half for veteran Alvaro Saborío, made the difference in the end. But for much of the first half, Costa Rica’s defense got roundly out-hustled by an inspired Venezuelan side. La Vinotinto burnt Costa Rica’s lagging backline in the 29th minute when a pair of forwards including Salomon Rondón broke through, allowing Rondón to put an easy goal past a helpless Patrick Pemberton.Venezuela continued with the fast offensive pace, tallying three shots on goal in the first half and making coach Óscar Ramírez’s five-man backline look frazzled.South American teams are known for playing tough and contesting everything, and Costa Rica saw a heavy dose of that grittiness on Friday. When La Sele was getting punched in the mouth and was down a goal, the Costa Ricans looked like they were beginning to clam up.A player like defender Kendall Waston, who is a bruiser, should relish this type of play. Instead, he looked slow to the ball and was continuously being attacked. Goalie Patrick Pemberton, who was subbed out at halftime for Leonel Moreira, was regularly coming far out of the box, including one ill-advised play in which he tripped over his own teammate some 15 yards in front of the goal.Eventually, as it always seems to do under Ramírez, La Sele calmed down and responded. In the 40th minute, defender Cristian Gamboa struck in a long-range golazo through a line of defenders to tie the game at 1-1.Costa Rica then looked like it had scored again when Saborío lofted up a header for Waston. However, Waston was called offsides and the game remained tied at the half.Ramírez came out with a somewhat surprising lineup, and it’s clear that a few spots are still up for grabs before Costa Rica takes the field against Paraguay on June 4 to begin Copa América group play. In the midfield, Christian Bolaños was named the starter over Yeltsin Tejeda, who’s coming off an injury. At forward, the 34-year-old Saborío got a surprising start over usual starter Marco Ureña and had a scoring opportunity in the second minute off a pass from Joel Campbell, who again played masterfully.After assisting Gamboa’s golazo, Campbell nearly came back with another assist just minutes later on a long volley, but captain Bryan Ruíz couldn’t get enough leg on the ball to contest the goalie.Costa Rica will now head to Orlando, Florida, to play an up-and-coming Paraguay squad. The Copa América opener will kick off at 3 p.m. Costa Rican time on Saturday, June 4. The Ticos will continue group play against the United States on June 7 and Colombia on June 11.
