Eventually Siani’s slate was wiped clean and he completed the match.Still, the image of a top referee being openly disrespected will not please FIFA.Roldan arrived at the Confederations Cup trying to rebuild a reputation that was damaged at the 2014 World Cup. There, he was chosen for the second game of the tournament, and incorrectly ruled out two Mexico goals. FIFA did not pick him for another refereeing duty in Brazil.To further damage Roldan’s standing, Germany coach Joachim Loew said neither he nor Can believed the tackle merited even a yellow card.“I didn’t have the impression that it was a mean foul with the intent to hurt the opponent. It was not intentional,” Loew said through a translator at the post-match news conference.Loew, whose Germany team will defend its World Cup title next year, still thinks video review can benefit the game — with one condition.“I think it can be fine-tuned over time so that decisions can be made more quickly,” the German coach said. “That would be great.” Gerald: Just because I’ve been bashed doesn’t mean I’d stop working Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ LATEST STORIES Wangs stuns Racal, improves to 3-2 Swing Out Sister back to PH this April Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’center_img Portugal had most to complain about one week ago when a potential opening goal in a 2-2 draw with Mexico was ruled out by an offside judged in an earlier phase of play.FIFA stressed last week that all decisions proved ultimately correct, and the controversies were simply inevitable overreactions as world football gets used to a new system being put to its highest-profile tests.Indeed, FIFA President Gianni Infantino felt confident to proclaim video review was “the future of football” and still on track to be approved by the guardians of the game’s laws before the 2018 World Cup.Human error by Roldan seemed the biggest problem Sunday though it added to the perception that video review is capable of causing as much controversy as it solves.FIFA has certainly pulled back from its prediction last year that game-changing decisions — goals scored, penalty kicks awarded, red cards, mistaken identity — could be reviewed and resolved in as few as six seconds.ADVERTISEMENT Missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal inches closer to entering PH Navy’s fleet Wilmar Roldan sent off a Cameroon defender more than three minutes after a high tackle on a German opponent and only after his own case of mistaken identity.The Colombian official arrived at what was arguably the correct decision following two visits to the touchline to consult video replays and first showing only a yellow card, then a red card, to the wrong Cameroon player.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

He also won the award in 1983 and 1985.One of his biggest regrets was never winning the World Cup with France, which lost semifinals against West Germany in 1982 and 1986. He scored 41 goals in 72 games for France.COACHINGPlatini’s sole coaching stint was with France’s national team, and it didn’t go well.He took charge in 1988, and the team failed to qualify for the World Cup in 1990, despite having the talents of Jean-Pierre Papin and a young Eric Cantona. 11 nabbed for shabu, drug den busted in Maguindanao LATEST STORIES View comments FILE – In this Feb.22, 2014 file photo, UEFA President Michel Platini arrives at a press conference, one day prior to the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying draw in Nice, southeastern France.

(AP Photo/Lionel Cironneau, File)Affectionately nicknamed Le Roi, or The King, Michel Platini bestrode the soccer field with inimitable elegance as the world’s best player of the early 1980s, helping to bridge the gap between the eras of Pele and Diego Maradona.Repeatedly voted Europe’s best player, the Frenchman instantly recognizable for his unruly mop of hair and his often grumpy demeanor in his later years went on to become European soccer’s able top administrator as president of the UEFA.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Under his watch, from 2007 to 2015, more teams were added to the European Championship, and a minimum 10-game ban for racist abuse by players was introduced.DOWNFALLWhile organizing the 1998 World Cup, Platini worked closely with FIFA’s CEO-like top administrator, Sepp Blatter. He helped Blatter become FIFA president in an eve-of-tournament election dogged by claims of vote-buying by other campaign supporters.Platini served as Blatter’s adviser from 1998 to 2002, and those ties that bound the mentor and his protege would bring them both down in 2015 .In 2011, Blatter signed off paying Platini $2 million, a salary Blatter had no authority to approve. cq?)

How can M&CC whimsically change Constables’ uniforms?

first_imgDear Editor,I have observed what seems to be a change of uniform of constables attached to the City Constabulary of Georgetown, from their traditional dark blue uniforms to light blue tops and dark bottoms. These persons moving around the markets and around the city with these new outfits look more like security guards than Policemen.I would like to know if the Georgetown City Constabulary has changed its uniform just like that, without properly sensitising the public. Police departments all over the world are very strongly traditional, and they want their officers to look like Police officers. In other words, what the public associates with “Police officer”.Most people can identify a Police officer by the official Police uniform. When citizens on a busy street are in need of help, they scan the crowds of pedestrians looking for the distinctive uniform of a Police officer. Drivers who come to an intersection occupied by a person in a Police uniform usually willingly submit to that person’s hand directions. Criminals usually curb their unlawful behaviours when they spot a uniformed Police officer in the area. Many parents teach their children to respect and trust a person in Police uniform. How can the Council just whimsically change the uniforms of their Constables like that?Everyone knows that their uniforms were made of cheap polyester, and were poorly tailored, resulting in their wearers being hot and uncomfortable, and that they faded and turned purple after being laundered a few times, but that does not give them the right to just arbitrarily change them? They just needed to purchase high quality and properly tailored apparel.The traditional dark blue crisp uniforms of the City Constabulary conveyed power and authority. Even the slightest alterations to the style of this uniform will change how citizens will perceive these constables. The City Constabulary uniform is a tradition as old as the Constabulary itself, patterned after the London Metropolitan Police, who developed the first standard Police apparel.These first Police officers, the famous “Bobbies” of London, were issued a dark blue, paramilitary-style uniform. The colour blue was chosen to distinguish the Police from the British military, who wore red and white uniforms at the time.Darker colours may have been preferred for their ease in cleaning and their ability to help conceal the wearer in tactical situations. Dark colours help cover up stains and keep the officer from being easily spotted by lawbreakers, especially at night.Is this change of uniform another hare-brained idea by City Hall officials?With thanks,Riley Matthewslast_img read more

Why APNU/AFC’s term in office has been an abysmal failure

first_imgDear Editor,By any major measure, APNU has been a failure. Here are a few instances:1. Drained disposable income of the populace by extracting a 50 per cent increase in taxation over the 2015 to 2018 period. The implementation of over 200 tax measures has seen annual tax revenue at $200 billion in 2018, vs $135 billion in 2014, a whopping 65 billion increase on the backs of the populace. Small wonder the average man is feeling the squeeze.2. Stifled and scared-away investment. With almost four years since the coalition came to power, not a single major private or public investment project has materialised. Instead, the APNU is simply reaping the benefits of investment projects and financing arranged by the PPP Government. From Exxon to the Cheddi Jagan airport, to the new gold mines, manganese mines, bauxite mines – all of these were arranged by the PPP. All new investment has stalled due to the bureaucracy and ineptitude of this APNU/AFC Government. Had APNU not scuttled the Amaila Falls project, a total of US$850 million would have been invested in Guyana and 165 Megawatts of power would have been available this year into the grid at 10 cents per kilowatts. Instead, the country faces blackouts. Nationalisation of the Berbice Bridge is yet another example and, of course, the derailing of the speciality hospital by awarding the contract to a client of an AFC Government Minister.3. Abandoned, ignored of reneged on every major promise made in the APNU/AFC manifesto. Instead of inclusionary policies, measures to improve prosperity, good governance, improving accountability and transparency and zero corruption, the APNU/AFC has ignored each of these. Their performance has been the exact opposite. No wonder the populace is fed-up.4. Draining of foreign reserves and gold reserves by over US$400 million and incurring an overdraft with the Central Bank (illegal) of over US$250 million. As if increased taxation was not enough.5. The populace has lost confidence. Just look at the Local Government Elections (LGE) results. A whopping landslide win for PPP with 61 per cent of the votes vs 34 per cent for APNU and 4 per cent for the AFC.6. Loss of no-confidence vote in Parliament following Charrandas Singh voting with the Opposition in protest of closing the sugar estates and ignoring the plight of the sugar workers.The evidence of the abysmal failure of APNU/AFC is clear. The Parliament and the public have lost confidence in the APNU/AFC coalition Government. Elections must be held in accordance with the Constitution. Elections must be held now.Sincerely,A Grantlast_img read more

Wanyama’s Saints frustrate Chelsea again

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, March 15- Diego Costa ended his seven-game drought but the Chelsea striker’s 18th Premier League goal of the season was not enough to secure victory as the leaders were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.Jose Mourinho’s side were desperate to bounce back from their midweek Champions League exit against Paris Saint Germain and take advantage of Manchester City’s surprise defeat against Burnley on Saturday. But Dusan Tadic’s 19th penalty cancelled out Costa’s 11th minute opener and denied the Blues the chance to establish an even more commanding lead over the chasing pack.While a point extended Chelsea’s lead at the head of the table to six points, having played a game less than second-placed City, it was a disappointing end to a frustrating week for Mourinho and company.The draw also frustrated Southampton who were unable to make bigger inroads in their efforts to force their way back into contention for a top four finish.Mourinho had responded to the Champions League exit by rounding on his team’s critics – Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness, the former Liverpool players turned TV pundits, came in for particular attention for their comments about the Chelsea players behaviour towards the referee – and bullishly insisting his team would make up for that set-back by winning the title.The Chelsea manager’s decision to retain 10 of the starting line-up that failed to beat PSG, Willian came in for Ramires, reinforced the view that Mourinho had faith in his players’ resilience.And the opening moments of the game suggested the Portuguese’s confidence was not misplaced with his side capping a bright start with a much-needed goal from Costa.The move that led to Chelsea taking the lead offered a reminder of the qualities they have shown for much of the season with Eden Hazard exchanging passes with Costa outside the Southampton area before working the ball out to Branislav Ivanovic on the right.Costa, meanwhile, spotted a gap in the visitors’ defences and darted into the area where he met Ivanovic’s well-flighted cross with a powerful header from just six yards out. – Wounded morale – The pain of Wednesday evening had been eased, but Southampton responded immediately, confirming they had no intention of simply playing a supporting role as Mourinho’s team repaired their wounded morale.Ronald Koeman’s side had enjoyed a 12-day break since the victory over Crystal Palace that had revived their top-four challenge.Presented with the opportunity to take his players for a mid-season break, Koeman broke with tradition, opting to head for the snow of Switzerland instead of the more traditional warm weather training trip.The move appeared to have had the desired effect with Southampton looking sharp and refreshed as they quickly recovered and were back on level terms thanks to a contentious penalty decision.Referee Mike Dean decided the excellent Sadio Mane was brought down after the Southampton forward found himself sandwiched between Nemanja Matic and Ivanovic.The Chelsea players were clearly unhappy at the decision but, having being accused of surrounding referee Bjorn Kuipers and contributing to the Dutchman’s decision to dismiss Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Wednesday, the reaction this time was muted.There was another potential flashpoint shortly afterwards when Ivanovic’s appeals for a penalty were dismissed, but the home side’s main concern was how to stifle Koeman’s side.Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama were dominating the midfield while Tadic and Mane repeatedly threatened Thibaut Courtois’ goal.By contrast, Chelsea appeared ponderous and were fortunate to reach half-time on level terms.The second half brought an improvement from Mourinho’s side with Costa becoming more prominent, particularly when the forward diverted Willian’s shot against the upright.The momentum of the game continued to favour Chelsea and it took two excellent saves from Saints keeper Fraser Forster to keep out a Hazard header and an Oscar shot before John Terry blazed wide in a frantic finale.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

JonBenet murder case still fascinates

first_img“It’s so bizarre on its surface … and now you have this very forensic-minded public which you didn’t have before,” he said. It is not at all clear that Karr is guilty. His confession appears pockmarked by inconsistencies. Doubts and questions have been raised about whether Karr, who has not lived in Colorado, was ever in the state, let alone at the time of the murder. Authorities, urging patience and caution, will not say whether DNA tests have revealed any connection. It is all very strange. But looking back on the JonBenet case, is it also all too typical? The doubt that now twists around the case took root hours after police reached the Ramsey’s home. As police searched the scene that Thursday afternoon, detectives allowed Patsy’s husband, John, to re-enter the house alone. He emerged a few minutes later, JonBenet’s body limp in his arms. That was the first of what would be criticized as a series of inept mistakes by investigators. It set the scene for the Ramseys to launch their own parallel campaign for clues, even as they straight-armed Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby’s department. And, as supermarket tabloids and cable networks swarmed over the case, a bizarre dynamic began to take shape. “The family is cooperating,” a Boulder city spokeswoman assured reporters early on. “They are in Boulder under protective custody. They are not under house arrest.” By New Year’s Eve, the Ramseys had hired an attorney, their own publicist and their own investigators. Soon, they drew into seclusion, shifting between friends’ homes week to week, their movements and possible motivations the subject of cover headlines in the tabloids. “Cops: Mom Confesses `It’s My Fault”‘ cried the front page of The National Enquirer, two months after the murder. Investigators began to signal their frustration. The case would take months to solve, Koby said. Five months after the murder, he would remove two detectives from the case, including the first one to arrive at the Ramsey home. Later, he would acknowledge mistakes had been made in the early going. Eventually, he would retire in disgrace. As the months dragged on, little headway appeared to be made. Handwriting samples were taken from both of JonBenet’s parents. But their thrust and parry with investigators intensified, as the two sides negotiated publicly about where detectives would be allowed to interview the couple – at their home together or at the police station, recorded on tape. Not until more than four months after the murder did they finally sit down with police for formal interviews. After that, it would be more than a year before the couple and their 9-year-old son, Burke – under the “umbrella of suspicion” along with his parents – were interviewed again. Even as it began to appear that the murderer might never be identified, prosecutors seated a grand jury to examine the case in spring 1998. As the case entered its third year, the grand jury even sought records on the books that JonBenet’s parents bought. But in late 1999, prosecutors announced that no indictments would be issued, citing a lack of evidence. A former Boulder detective went on TV, declaring that she knew who the murderer was, but that the killer would never be brought to justice. By the end of 2000 – four years after the murder – with investigators exhausted, vast amounts of time and money spent and no apparent progress made, many observers believed the case might never be solved. “JonBenet Ramsey has been dead for 1,441 days,” wrote Chuck Green, a columnist for The Denver Post. “The investigation into her murder has been dead for just as long.” That is the case that Mary Lacy inherited when she became the new district attorney for Boulder County, promising to revisit JonBenet’s death. In 2003, a federal judge in Atlanta concluded that evidence in the case was far more suggestive that an intruder had killed JonBenet than one centering on her mother, who had become the prime suspect in many minds. Lacy agreed. Patsy Ramsey died in June.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Ten years later, it is a blur of morbid fascination and speculation, of gross misjudgments and disturbing suspicions, a torrent of bold type and flashing images that makes it difficult to remember the dark winter stillness in which it all started. It was 5:22 a.m., the morning after Christmas, 1996 – the moment the story of JonBenet Ramsey simultaneously ended and began. In the 15-room Tudor home at 755 15th St., Patsy Ramsey picked up the phone and dialed 911. Please help, she implored the Boulder, Colo., police dispatcher; someone had stolen her little girl. When police officers arrived at the home in the upscale Chautauqua neighborhood, not far from the University of Colorado campus, they were told they were looking for a 6-year-old with shining eyes and flowing blonde hair, a diminutive beauty queen. They studied a ransom note found inside. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.“Mr. Ramsey: Listen Carefully!” it began. “At this time we have your daughter in our possession. She is safe and unharmed, and if you want to see her in 1997, you must follow our instructions …” In that moment, the case, horrific as it was, was at least fairly straightforward. By afternoon, even that dubious bit of reassurance would be lost. Nearly a decade has passed since then. But the uproar unleashed this past week by the arrest in Thailand of John Mark Karr, a 41-year-old itinerant teacher who says he killed JonBenet, makes it clear that fascination with the case, while it may have ebbed over time, has never really diminished. And it provides just one more discomforting twist to a story that continues to both repulse and intrigue in a way that few other notorious cases have ever done. “We move on (from other cases) because they get replaced. They’re almost generics. But how many involve victims of this degree of wealth? How many involve … parents of victims who call press conferences (to) keep it alive?” says Andrew Vachss, a best-selling author of crime novels that are an outgrowth of a career spent defending the rights of children. last_img

Cloud for All Industry Collaborations Surge at Cloud Day

first_imgSince we announced the Cloud for All initiative last summer, Intel engineering teams have been hard at work driving industry collaborations.  Our goal, unleashing tens of thousands of new clouds through delivery of easy to deploy and manage solutions to the marketplace.  With Cloud for All, we have assembled the largest developer team working on OpenStack. We’ve opened the OpenStack Innovation Center with Rackspace and the OpenStack Foundation, and developers are actively testing code at scale.  We’ve addressed some of the key enterprise feature gaps in the OpenStack platform today with tens of thousands of lines of code submitted addressing capabilities such as high availability for tenants and services, network and storage support, and ease of deployment.  We’ve launched a series of bug smashing events with the OpenStack community and have addressed over a quarter of the known bugs to date.  We’ve worked with industry leaders such as CoreOS, Mesosphere, Microsoft, Mirantis, RedHat, SUSE, and VMware to deliver optimized SDI stacks and have integrated them with industry partners into technical reference architectures ready for customer deployment.  Finally, we’ve delivered nearly 100 POCs and trials of these solutions with successful results in TCO reduction and agility increase.This has certainly been excellent progress, but with Cloud Day we’re unveiling a number of new collaborations to drive deeper investment in the industry SDI stack evolution.  We are optimizing software with underlying Intel architecture capabilities while accelerating successful deployments in enterprise data centers.  In other words, we have hit the turbo button on Cloud for All and our work with the industry to democratize cloud.Let me start with investment in SDI solutions.  Enterprise customers have been looking for opportunities to run traditional VM based workloads alongside containerized applications with the ability to seamlessly integrate both into their environments. That’s why we’re so delighted by the announcement of a collaboration with CoreOS and Mirantis to integrate Kubernetes and OpenStack into a single open source SDI set of capabilities, eliminating confusion caused by solution fragmentation and giving our customers a clear path to deployment of mixed VM and container environments.Kubernetes was initially delivered by Google to encourage broad proliferation of container app development models, and CoreOS, the company who has delivered the Tectonic solution to the market, makes an ideal partner for leading the Kubernetes development.  Mirantis, a pure play OpenStack vendor, brings tried and true expertise on the OpenStack platform to the collaboration.  We will be offering all software as upstream contributions benefitting the entire community towards accelerated SDI innovation. Expect more details on this collaboration at the OpenStack Summit in Austin.Equally as critical as open source platform innovation is optimization of the SDI stack with underlying infrastructure.  We announced the creation of the Intel Cloud Builders program today with over 30 industry leaders to spur broad optimization of SDI and drive integration of these solutions into the market.  The program will offer developer education opportunities, drive optimization efforts into deployable reference architectures, and integration of available solutions with end user POCs and trials. We’ve published 20 reference architectures today with the launch, and these can be viewed at of the type of optimization efforts driven through Intel Cloud Builders are two software collaborations announced today focused on Snap, our open source telemetry framework that provides access to data on the states and capabilities of underlying infrastructure enabling more acute awareness and control of data center infrastructure.  We announced a collaboration with raintank to integrate snap into Grafana.  I hosted Torkel Odegaard, Co-Founder of raintank, onstage to share a demo of Grafana at work, and Torkel surprised the crowd with an announcement of the new Grafana 3.0 and launch of delivering this new capability to the hundreds of thousands of current Grafana users.  We also announced that leading provider will be integrating snap into their future software platforms.At the end of the day, we collaborate with the industry to drive deployment of cloud solutions and bring the agility and efficiency of the cloud model to the mainstream. This is why our announcement with VMware is an important aspect of our strategy to drive broad cloud deployments in the enterprise this year.  We announced the creation of a network of Centers of Excellence, resources for end customers to get custom configuration support, run POCs, and access reference architectures to speed deployments on premises.  We expect hundreds of customers to access the COEs this year with the first COE opening its doors today for customer engagement.  Additionally, we’ve teamed up with NIST to drive the latest cybersecurity standards and compliance into the COEs offering customers a unique opportunity to leverage the latest security technologies from both companies into their deployments.If you’re excited as I am about the progress we’re making with accelerated industry innovation towards unleashing tens of thousands of clouds, I encourage you to engage with us on this journey.  If you’re coding open source software for SDI, engage with us in the OpenStack Innovation Center, learn more about our CoreOS, Mirantis collaboration, or get connected with us on github with snap. If you’re a hardware or software company working in this space, consider membership in Intel Cloud Builders, and start talking to us about collaborations to deliver optimized solutions to the market.  If you’re looking to deploy cloud solutions, check out our solutions catalog and talk to us about a POC or trial.  Cloud is the greatest disruptor of business today, and we’re looking forward to working with you to drive the democratization of cloud to deliver this disruptive power to all.last_img read more

Eden Hazard must exploit God-given talent, says Antonio Conte

first_imgMidfielder Eden Hazard must continue to be decisive on the pitch and exploit the talent he is blessed with to become one of the game’s greats, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has said.The Belgian has made just three substitute appearances in the league since returning from an ankle fracture sustained on international duty in June but impressed in the Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid in midweek.Conte, who could hand Hazard his first league start in the home game against Manchester City on Saturday, said the 26-year-old had a big chance to reiterate his importance to the team.”In every game he finds a way to be decisive, to score or make an assist for his team mates, I love this about him and that’s what I ask of him,” Conte told the club’s website (”We need a player with his talent and it’s important for a coach to ask him to be decisive. God gave him this talent and he must exploit it. It’s my job to push him to be decisive.”The Italian said Hazard was different to attackers such as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, who were more relentless in their pursuit of goals.”Sometimes with Eden, if he scores one goal he’s happy and if there is another situation he prefers to make an assist, not to score a second. With Ronaldo, he scores one goal and wants to score twice, three times, the same with Messi,” he said.”I don’t think selfish is the right word because I don’t like selfish players. I like players who think for the team, not themselves,” he added.advertisement”Eden is not selfish, he’s a player who loves to play football, he enjoys playing football. I like his behaviour and his attitude but in every game he must be decisive.”With Chelsea back in the Champions League, Conte said Hazard also had the opportunity to test himself against the best.”Eden is a top player and I think this season he has a big opportunity because we are playing in the Champions League and, together with the Premier League, it’s important to show you are a top player and you can compete to be the best.”last_img read more

Charles Leclerc looks like a gamble by Ferrari – but he’s not

first_imgShare on WhatsApp Share on Messenger Read more Motor sport Since you’re here… Mere numbers do not tell the full story quite as clearly as his racecraft does. In Baku he took places at the start, then made Pierre Gasly and Lance Stroll look sluggish as he passed them at a restart, before defending his place against Fernando Alonso. It was the race of a driver who had found his feet in a new formula remarkably swiftly and another outstanding meeting in Spain followed.Since which the talk of him moving to Ferrari gathered more and more momentum, an additional weight he has handled with aplomb. Open and straightforward in person, he is given to considering answers to ensure what he says is of import, reflecting a character that is constantly looking for ways to improve. This ability to exercise self-analysis will stand him in good stead when steps into the spotlight next season.When he does so, Leclerc will immediately be in the mix with Vettel and Lewis Hamilton in a car proven to be well-balanced and quick. Ferrari believe he is ready to do so and F1 will be all the better for their faith in him. Support The Guardian Sportblog Throwing young talent into the heat of the battle at the very front of the Formula One grid is a bold move. For Ferrari, who have chosen to do just that by promoting the 20-year-old rookie Charles Leclerc to the team for next season, it is also out of character, given their usually more conservative approach to appointing drivers. Yet the Scuderia are far from taking a chance with Leclerc, one of the most exciting talents in the sport, who has proved he has the attributes to partner Sebastian Vettel in the most prestigious drive in motor racing.Last season, on his way to a dominant title win in F2, Leclerc told me at the Hungaroring it was still a dream to make it to F1. He did not have to wait long and now drives for Sauber. Before this year’s Monaco Grand Prix, his home race, he said it was “a dream” to one day drive the red cars. In 2019 his remarkable and almost unprecedented fulfilment of all these aspirations will be complete as he joins Ferrari, to replace Kimi Räikkönen.This was sooner than expected, despite his talent. He is the youngest driver to have been appointed by Ferrari since Ricardo Rodríguez entered the Italian Grand Prix for the Scuderia in 1961. More noticeably, he is the least experienced driver they have appointed since Enzo Ferrari opted to give Gilles Villeneuve a shot in one of his cars at the Canadian Grand Prix in 1977. Villeneuve had only one race to his name; Leclerc will take his seat with just one season under his belt.

A rookie year is tough enough in a tried and tested ride but their car was a handful to drive as they began to understand the package and attempt to unlock its potential. A spin at the third round in China was chastening for Leclerc.He reacted with complete professionalism and went back to the team to work through ways he and the car could develop together. What followed caught Marchionne and everyone else’s attention. At the next round in Baku he was sixth. Four more points finishes from the following five races ensued. Over fastest lap pace the Sauber is the second slowest car on the grid, yet Leclerc has put it into Q3 three times and out-qualified his vastly more experienced team-mate, Marcus Ericsson, 11 times to three. Share on LinkedIn Pinterest Charles Leclerc to replace Kimi Raikkonen as Ferrari ring changes comment Ferrari brought him into their young driver academy in 2016 and were clearly aware then of his potential. At the Hungaroring last year, although he was driving in F2 for Prema, a representative of the Scuderia had to be present when he was interviewed, so protective were they of their protege. Their nurturing has worked well, if coming to fruition possibly sooner than expected.Crucially Leclerc had put in the performances this season to impress the late Sergio Marchionne, the former Ferrari chairman who wanted him in the car in 2019; the team have honoured his intentions. Sebastian Vettel has questions to answer as he lets slip a great chance Share on Twitter Read more Facebook Twitter Share on Pinterest Giles Richards Yet there is no sense that this unusual shift in policy is anything but calculated on Leclerc’s obvious talent. It would have been easy to maintain Räikkönen for one more season and for Leclerc to remain at Sauber. Ferrari have made a bold move but it is one the Monégasque driver deserves.He is calm, assured and mature beyond his years. Leclerc dealt with both the death of his godfather, Jules Bianchi, in 2015 and his father last year with remarkable composure. Before this season began he was honest about the scale of task that lay ahead and has since proved able to adapt and learn with alacrity.last_img read more

We apologize for the cis- and heteronormativity that this promotes.Although it is impossible to become pregnant without contribution from a man, the contraception industry has virtually ignored their role in procreation, leaving their options stagnant in condom use, vasectomies, and the withdrawal method. Men who have female partners are frequently involved in conversations regarding birth control, but a man educating himself and encouraging his partner’s usage is wildly different from actual willingness to subject himself to the arduous administration methods and unpredictable side effects that come to be expected with contraceptives.Research has demonstrated that men are not opposed to using contraception if it means safer sex and a shared burden between partners. Male contraception could revolutionize family planning; combining it with female contraception could relieve worry from partners where a woman uses the pill, or similar contraceptives with high user error rates. Still, a lack of knowledge and research holds back progress, and attitudes towards male contraception vary based on location and contraceptive.[1][2][3][5] For instance, 44% of men in Hong Kong expressed willingness to try a male pill compared to 83% of white men in Cape Town, and 32% of men in Edinburgh expressed willingness to try an injectable compared with 62% of white men in Cape Town.[4]This is not to say that research has not been done on this regard. In fact, international research into the idea of male contraception began in the 1970s,[1] and there are numerous male contraception options in very early stages of development, with several drawing more attention than others.So, what are some of the products being tested? From injectables to thermal underwear, methods with varying amounts of hormones (as well as non-hormonal methods) have demonstrated effectiveness, with the drawbacks mainly being unpleasant side effects and demanding means of execution.[2][5]Hormonal methods Male hormonal contraceptives work by suppressing gonadotropins (hormones which stimulate the activity of the gonads) release from the pituitary, inducing the suppression of spermatogenesis (the development of mature sperm cells).[6] Thousands of healthy men have enrolled in clinical trials of male hormonal contraceptives with a nearly universal return of steroid production and spermatogenesis function once the contraceptives are stopped.[6]Large, international studies have demonstrated testosterone’s efficiency in suppressing sperm concentrations, while further research has found that testosterone alone is not as efficient as testosterone plus a progestin, both in the rate and extent of suppression of spermatogenesis.[5][6]Testosterone clears quickly from the system when taken orally, and multiple doses per day is impractical, thus rendering the implementation of a male pill improbable.[2] Hormonal injections are among the most widely researched male contraceptive options, and have been found to be extremely effective, with sperm function returning to normal after discontinuation.[5] In a trial evaluating a testosterone injectable, 61% of the 44 participants who completed the 1-year exposure period rated the injectable as excellent or good and 79% indicated that they would use it if it were available.[3]The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Contraceptive Research And Development Program (CONRAD) analyzed testosterone undecanoate (TU) and norethisterone enanthate (NETE) in a large efficacy study, however after mild to moderate mood changes were noted in some of the participants, an external safety review committee recommended stopping further injections before the planned end of the study.[5]  The most common mood change, found in 16.9% of participants, was categorized as “emotional disorder,” with 63 participants ranking the disorder as “mild,” two ranking it as “moderate” and zero as “severe.” The next most common mood change was mood swings, found in 4.7% of participants, with 16 participants ranking the mood swings as “mild,” three ranking them as “moderate” and zero as “severe.” [12] Although the side effects seem tame when quantified like this, one participant is thought to have taken their own life and another attempted to do so during the trial.[13] WHO and CONRAD will not be moving forward in clinical trials, as there is no more funding available to retest another formulation.[9]Other methods of delivery are also being tested. Nestorone, a transdermal testosterone gel, showed effective suppression of gonadotropins when used for 20 days.[6] With no injections necessary, the gel would be widely accepted, and an encouraging trial showed that most failure was due to inconsistent or nonuse of products, not failure of product’s effectiveness.[2] Nestorone is currently in Phase 2 clinical trials.[10]Non-hormonal methods Perhaps the most recognizable non-hormonal method is RISUG, an injectable form of long acting reversible contraception (LARC) that began development in India in the early 1980s.[6] RISUG has been in clinical trials for decades, with Phase 1 and Phase 2 published in 1993 and 1997, and Phase 3 in 2003. The longest duration of the RISUG bearer was over 13 years.[7]Intellectual property rights to RISUG were acquired by NGO Parsemus Foundation in 2010.[5] Parsemus used the RISUG technology to create Vasalgel, which claims to have a different polymer and formulation than RISUG. Parsemus has performed preclinical studies in rabbits and monkeys, and intends to begin trials in humans in 2020, although human trial start dates had previously been projected for 2018 and 2019.[2] According to the Parsemus website, “The procedure is similar to a no-scalpel vasectomy, except a gel is injected into the vas deferens (the tube the sperm swim through), rather than cutting the vas (as is done in vasectomy). If a man wishes to restore flow of sperm, whether after months or years, the polymer would be dissolved and flushed out.”[8] However, until drug companies choose to allocate funds to and put priority on testing Vasalgel, progress will be extremely difficult.Another fascinating non-hormonal option is thermal contraception. This is based on the notion that in human males, testicular temperature is 2-5 degrees Celsius lower than core body temperature, so when testicular temperature is increased, sperm output is reduced. Specific thermal underwear lifts testes closer to the body and warms them by 2 degrees Celsius.[1] A French study found that males enjoyed that the underwear was natural and non-invasive but expressed concern over the need to wear it continuously.[1]So, what’s stopping progress?Researchers have been playing around with the idea of male contraception for decades, but a lack of urgency surrounds the issue. Regardless of ample enthusiasm for the idea, the fact remains that pursuing male contraceptives like the ones described above would involve significant effort on the part of both male volunteers and the male-led pharmaceutical industry. Myriad hormonal and non-hormonal methods have been studied at least partially, but these studies receive little funding and almost no media attention, and abandonment and incompletion are rampant.[9] Public access to male contraception requires completed and successful clinical trials, which in turn require significant funds and far more participants. Pharmaceutical companies have expressed little interest in male contraception, presumably because the complex drug would not become profitable for many years.[15]Clinical trials that managed to amass the funding and subjects have been cut short due to side effects, such as mood swings, that are frequently associated with female hormonal contraception methods that millions use every day. Should men have to deal with the same side effects women do for the sake of family planning? Well, the flaws in female contraception, despite their use as an argument for leniency in male contraception development, also detract from funding towards male birth control, as better, more effective female contraception is also a public health goal. Sure, women endure severe adverse effects in the name of family planning, but they also have far more at stake, leaving them more likely to deem the side effects worth the risk.Organizations that fund contraception research and promotion are unlikely to divert all of their focus away from women’s health and onto men’s when there is still so much work to be done in achieving access to the family planning options already on the market. Yet, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation have both directed funds towards male contraception research. It’s important to note, though, that female contraception and its role in empowering women from low resource areas continues to be of higher priority.[14][16]Further, male contraception would not eliminate, or even necessarily reduce, the need for female contraception. Even in a hypothetical near future where male birth control is cheap, safe, and accessible, for men to become the sole bearer of contraceptive responsibility the hypothetical future would also need to be one where women can trust the intentions of all men that they are sexually intimate with. Unfortunately, the latter concept proves to be elusive. It is impossible to tell if a potential partner has a long acting reversible contraceptive (LARC), like Vasalgel, and a pill would be easy to lie about having taken. With their bodies, finances, and futures on the line, women might not trust that men are telling the truth. With the prevalence of “stealthing,” the act of secretly removing the condom without the knowledge of the partner, this is not an unfounded fear.[10] Research has shown that men generally desire larger families than women do, and in many cultures women are left out of reproductive decisions.[17] “Stealthing” is rooted in the patriarchal notion that man’s pleasure and his “right” to extend his bloodline justify violating a woman’s bodily autonomy.[18] Covert male contraception could make the abusive behavior even easier. Men are not the only perpetrators of reproductive manipulation, however. Male contraception would grant agency to men who fear being coerced into fatherhood by a deceptive partner. They would not have to carry the child, but fatherhood is itself far too heavy of a responsibility to risk if one is not fully prepared.Though male birth control would not replace its female counterpart, significant interest has been gauged due to the anticipated benefits. While male contraception is unlikely to be publicly available any time soon, it is not yet a lost cause. Nestorone transdermal gel’s clinical trial is estimated to complete by 2021,[11] and Parsemus is currently accepting donations to fund its research.[8] Very recently, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation allotted a grant of about $900,000 (£716,670) to Dundee University in Scotland for research into a male pill.[14] The progress may be slow, but the science is there, and it is promising.last_img read more

Inter outcast Icardi joins PSG on loan

first_imgInter striker Mauro Icardi has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a loan for the duration of the 2019-20 season.The loan reportedly includes an option for PSG to buy the 26-year-old Icardi for €65 million (£59m/$71m). This season, PSG reportedly will pay Icardi €8m, with a €2m bonus should they activate the purchase option in the deal.  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? If PSG do not activate the purchase option, Icardi would return to Inter on wages of €5m per season. Inter have also announced Icardi has signed a one-year extension on his contract, so if he does not join PSG permanently his deal with Inter will run through 2022. The Argentine’s future with Inter has been in doubt since February 2019, when he was stripped of his club captaincy amid reports of contentious contract negotiations between himself, his wife and agent Wanda Nara, and Inter.Icardi would not return until two months later, and though he finished out the season in the squad, he was not part of new Inter head coach Antonio Conte’s plans for the 2019-20 campaign.Inter were vocal about moving Icardi on, with links to Juventus, including a possible swap of Paulo Dybala mooted, while Napoli, Monaco and Atletico Madrid were also mentioned as possible landing spots in recent months.However, he will instead join PSG, where the Ligue 1 champions have been beset by an injury crisis ahead of the start of Champions League play.Star forward Kylian Mbappe suffered a hamstring injury in a late August match against Toulouse and was ruled out for at least four weeks.Striker Edinson Cavani was injured in the same match, having injured his right adductor in the victory.Former Stoke City striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting replaced Cavani, with the 30-year-old having netted three times for PSG in his two appearances since.However, with a September 18 showdown with Real Madrid in the Champions League awaiting the Ligue 1 champions, PSG have elected to bring in another proven option in attack.While PSG have suffered injuries in the early part of the campaign, they are set to welcome back star forward Neymar, who will stay at the club after Barcelona failed to agree a move for the Brazil star.Neymar has yet to feature for PSG this season, as uncertainty in his transfer situation have kept him out of the squad the past two matches.last_img read more

first_imgRoss Barkley says he is Chelsea’s designated penalty taker and insists he will take the next one the club are awarded despite his 87th-minute miss against Valencia on Tuesday.Willian, Jorginho and Tammy Abraham were all in discussion with Barkley after the referee checked with VAR to give a penalty for a handball by Daniel Wass late on in the defeat to the Spanish side.Rodrigo’s 74th-minute goal proved the difference at Stamford Bridge and England midfielder Barkley has insisted he will take another one despite blazing his spot-kick over the bar.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career “When I’m on the pitch, I’ll take the penalty,” he told reporters. “Obviously I didn’t execute it right but everybody misses penalties. I didn’t score the goal but I felt confident. If there was another penalty in the game, I would have been confident to take it.”You can miss penalties. It’s not the end of the world. We’ve got five more games in the group stage that we’re aiming to win but this didn’t go our way.”Barkley has taken five other penalties during his time at Chelsea across penalty-shootouts and during matches.However, Jorginho is the only Blues player to score from the spot in a competitive match this season after netting in the Super Cup final against Liverpool, with Barkley on the bench.Willian and Abraham have also taken high-profile penalties in the past and Barkley has no hard feelings over the reaction of his team-mates before he stepped up.”We’ve got a lot of good penalty-takers in the squad and on a sheet in the changing rooms it says I’m on penalties if I’m on the pitch,” he added.”Otherwise, it’s Jorginho. But as with all players, sometimes you feel confident to take them on but we can all miss one.”They are confident to take the penalties as well but I practice them every day. I don’t miss them in training and in pre-season I scored penalties. I’ve missed penalties before when I was at Everton and it is one of those things. I’m gutted that I missed but these things happen.”It [the conversations with his team-mates before the penalty] was more like ‘good luck with the penalty’ type of thing. They were encouraging me and would have been willing to take the penalty as well but I felt confident. It was a disappointing night all round. Our first game in the group stage, our first game at home as well, it was disappointing.”Missing a penalty is not the end of the world for me. It is a disappointing result not coming away with the three points and disappointing for me not executing the penalty right. I felt confident that I would have but for me, it is to focus on the next game and to get three points at the weekend.”Chelsea will now turn their focus to a game against Liverpool on Sunday, with the Reds also suffering defeat in the Champions League as they lost 2-0 to Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.last_img read more

Match Preview Though Liverpool have managed to reach the UCL final twice in two years, their European away form has been far from perfect  – and their defeat in Naples marked a fourth successive away group-stage loss. They lost all three of their 2018-19 away group stage games against Paris Saint-Germain, Red Star Belgrade, and Napoli.It is at home where the Reds are at their strongest, however, maintaining a 100% record at Anfield in the 2018-19 season and only managing to secure qualification to the last 16 on the final day of the group stage (in which they hosted Napoli and won 1-0).Despite their abysmal away record in Europe, Liverpool are among the favourites to win the Champions League this season, having brought home their sixth title in June after defeating Tottenham in the final.Klopp’s side currently top the Premier League and are five points clear of Manchester City, with the two once again considered the two sole front-runners in the race for the title.The Reds narrowly missed out on winning the double last year after losing out on the league by one solitary point, but they could very well challenge for both honours this season.Erling Braut Haaland Salzburg 2019-20Liverpool might feel that the 2-0 loss to Napoli was not an accurate reflection of the game, but they still need to win against Salzburg should they want to top Group E.Salzburg are familiar opponents to Sadio Mane and Naby Keita, who played for the side from 2012 to 2014 and 2014 to 2016 respectively. The Austrian champions will be far from an easy challenge, also currently topping the Austrian Bundesliga by five points.Klopp will be meeting his match attacking-wise, with Salzburg possessing a frighteningly devastating attacking team of their own. They have scored 45 goals in in their last 10 games, with their scorelines ranging from 7-2, 5-2 and 6-0.Teenage sensation Haaland has been the standout player , netting 17 times in 10 games for the club so far this season, as well as scoring a hat-trick in the victory over Genk.”I respect all other teams. We heard the other score had been 6-2, that is quite some score,” Klopp told reporters in his pre-match press conference.”I watched the match and it became more relative there is not such a massive difference. Salzburg scored four goals on breaks. If Salzburg can be assured of one thing it is that we respect them.”The pressure on us would be greater if we had nine points. We need to win a home match anyway and the pressure is greater.”We don’t have a lot of leeway. We can’t wait for scoring points. We need to get points tomorrow. Tomorrow night Salzburg will have to feel we are Liverpool and that they are in Liverpool and this is Anfield.”These are additional factors. I am only talking but we need to prove this is true.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Match Preview With both Chelsea and Lille losing their opening Champions League group stage matches, they will be facing pressure to pick up points at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.The Blues must win the game if they want to be in good contention to finish first in Group H, currently topped by Valencia and Ajax on three points each.Lampard and Co. will be buoyed after registering their first clean sheet of the season against Brighton on Saturday, but the former Chelsea midfielder will feel that he needs better results from his side to ensure that they go far in the European competition.Chelsea have had an average start to the Premier League season, currently sitting in seventh place and already tasting defeat to the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.They have found difficulty in trying to keeping clean sheets in this current campaign, though problems also lie at the opposite end of the pitch – with Chelsea having registered 24 shots on target against Brighton but only scoring two goals .The Blues boss has been praised for having faith in his young players in a squad full of promising talent, though are still arguably struggling to fill the Eden Hazard-shaped hole in the side despite standout performances from Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.Yazici Yusuf Lille Champions League 2019-20As for Lille, the Ligue 1 side faced similar problems when they sold Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal earlier in the summer, but find themselves in fourth place in the table.They are just four points adrift of Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain after taking five points from games against Rennes, Strasbourg and Nice.Victor Osimhen has been impressive for Lille with his six goals and two assists from eight league games, though the 3-0 defeat at Ajax will perhaps still be weighing on Christophe Galtier’s mind.Kante remains a doubt for Chelsea despite starting – and scoring – in the Premier League game against Liverpool.”We have to be honest, I thought Valencia wasn’t the worst game for us,” Lampard told reporters on Tuesday.”We played okay and should have got a result. It was a harsh lesson in switching off for a second and losing a match at this level.”I think that idea ramps up even more when you travel in the Champions League and play away from home at stadiums like this against top European teams. Lille have a lot of threats to us, particularly in attacking areas where they have a lot of speed and quality.”But as we sit here now with no points from the first game, it’s a game we have to be very ready for to try and pick up something. The players will be very aware of that.”We can hopefully bring the confidence of the last two results we’ve had, two really solid wins, into tomorrow night. We have to trust that if we play at our best then we’ll get the result we want.”last_img read more

Man Utd legend tells Rashford 13 goals isn’t enough

first_imgMarcus Rashford needs to decide “what he wants to be”, says Manchester United legend Andy Cole, with the 21-year-old told 13-goal returns are not enough for a central striker.The Old Trafford academy graduate has hit that mark in the last two seasons.He has generally been operating from the flanks, with Jose Mourinho preferring to use him in a wide role rather than one down the middle.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career Rashford has never shied away from the fact that he considers a traditional No.9 role to be his best, but he is yet to convince everyone.Cole admits more will be required from the England international if he goes down that route, with a decision needing to be made by everyone at United on how best to use a home-grown talent.The 1999 Treble winner told The Sun: “He doesn’t really enjoy it with his back to goal and he wants to pick it up and run at the defender.“He is a super talent but he has to decide now what he wants to be. Does he want to be a goalscorer or does he want to play off the left or right? “He’s 21 so I’d like to believe he knows what his strongest position is.“But if you are going to play as a centre forward for Manchester United, you have got to be looking to get yourself 20 goals.“His best return in a season so far is 13 and if that is your best return, and you are the main striker, you are going to have to get yourself a few more.”Roy Keane Manchester UnitedQuestions have been asked of United’s decision to part with Romelu Lukaku over the simmer, with a £75 million ($93m) sale to Inter leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer short on proven firepower.Cole also believes that the Red Devils are lacking in the middle of the park, with a Roy Keane-esque leader required to drag the club through some testing times.The former frontman added: “Roy gave everything on the pitch and was a very vocal individual.“In the modern game, you won’t see a vocal individual getting stuck into one of his team-mates.“But you could say that at Manchester United, we are lacking a little bit of that.“You need someone who is prepared to grab the game by the scruff of the neck, let a few people know what time it is.“You have always got to try and draw the best out of your team-mates. All of them need to step it up – for each other as team-mates, as well as the management.“Ole needs time to play the way he wants to play and get it back to what Manchester United is really about.“United have changed manager quite a few times and everyone has their own plan on how they want to play, so it will take a little bit of time.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Report: Russia 4-0 Scotland

first_imgArtem Dzyuba struck twice and Magomed Ozdoev scored a stunner as Russia wrapped up a deserved 4-0 win over Scotland in Group I of Euro 2020 qualifying.All four goals came in the second half as the hosts threw off the shackles of a frustrating opening 45 minutes, Dzyuba opening the scoring with a volley just before the hour. Ozdoev rifled home the pick of the bunch three minutes later and Dzyuba took his tally for the campaign to eight before Aleksandr Golovin compounded Scotland’s misery in Moscow.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career The result puts Russia on the brink of qualification, while Steve Clarke’s Scotland have the significant consolation of knowing they are already assured of a play-off spot courtesy of their Nations League exploits. Clarke made six changes from the 4-0 loss to Belgium, handing debuts to John Fleck and Michael Devlin, but Russia controlled proceedings from the outset.FULL TIME | Russia 4 – 0 ScotlandIt is all over in Moscow. Goals for Dzyuba, Ozdoev and Golovin give the home side win.— Scotland National Team (@ScotlandNT) October 10, 2019Despite that, they struggled for clear-cut openings before the break, Fedor Kudryashov firing off target when well placed at the back post to underline their lack of a cutting edge.Stanislav Cherchesov’s side, who won the reverse fixture 2-1, continued to press forward and Aleksey Ionov saw a strike blocked by Charlie Mulgrew, with goalkeeper David Marshall remaining untested in the opening 30 minutes.He was relieved to see Golovin’s curling free-kick dip narrowly over the crossbar as Russia’s frustration grew further in a scoreless first half.Dzyuba eventually broke the deadlock when he connected with Golovin’s corner and Ozdoev lit up the contest with an unstoppable drive from outside the box.There was further punishment to come for Scotland, who have now shipped 13 goals across four consecutive losses, with Dzyuba poking into the net amid some questionable defending.Golovin added further gloss with a coolly taken side-footed effort to cap a fine performance from Russia. What does it mean? Russia on the brink, Scotland eye alternative routeRussia are eight points ahead of third-placed Cyprus with three games remaining, making their qualification all but certain. On this display, they will fancy their chances of getting the job done in Nicosia at the weekend.For Scotland, the remaining trio of group matches represent an opportunity to build some form heading into the play-offs.Danger man Dzyuba at the doubleCherchesov’s side were on top throughout a one-sided contest but the breakthrough seemed like it may never come.That was until talisman Dzyuba stepped up and got his side off the mark, breaking down Scotland’s resolve and leaving them vulnerable to the quick one-two punch that followed. He added a third, doubling his own tally, for good measure and is in contention to be the top scorer in qualifying.Woeful outing for sorry ScotlandThis was a chastening outing for Scotland, who can in truth point to very few positives, if any.That they have a play-off spot in the bag should not excuse the apparent lack of attacking conviction on display in the Russian capital.Key Opta facts- Russia remain unbeaten against Scotland (P4 W2 D2 L0), with all four matches coming in Euro qualifiers, winning each of the last two.- Scotland have lost four consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since 2004, under Berti Vogts.- Russia have won 10 of their last 11 qualifying matches, losing only against Belgium back in March.- Only Israel’s Eran Zahavi (10) has scored more goals in EURO 2020 qualifying so far than Artem Dzyuba (8).- Aleksandr Golovin has been directly involved in three goals (1 goal, 2 assists) in a game for Russia for the first time since their World Cup 2018 opener against Saudi Arabia in June 2018 (1 goal, 2 assists).What’s next?Scotland host group whipping boys San Marino on Sunday, while Russia head to Cyprus on the same day. read morelast_img read more

Pogba and De Gea ruled out of Liverpool clash

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Paul Pogba and David de Gea will miss Manchester United’s match against Liverpool on Sunday through injury.De Gea limped off during Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday with an abductor problem.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career However, the clash against Jurgen Klopp’s unblemished Liverpool side will come too soon for both players as United look to recover from a difficult start to the season.”David needs a scan,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports of his Spanish goalkeeper. “I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.In De Gea’s place, Sergio Romero will make his first Premier League appearance of the season having previously played in the Carabao Cup and Europa League. Pogba, meanwhile, returned from his ankle injury against Arsenal on September 30, but that appearance was perhaps too soon as he missed out on United’s next Premier League game against Newcastle as well as France’s two matches during the international break. “Paul had an injury, he came back, he worked really hard. He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier,” Solskjaer said.”He had a scan after the Arsenal game and maybe needed a few weeks’ rest in a boot so hopefully he won’t be too long, but he won’t make this game, no.”The two injuries are a blow for Solskjaer’s side, who sit 12th in the Premier League, 15 points behind leaders Liverpool, who have won all eight of their league matches thus far.United may be able to call on Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, though, who are all pushing to return from injuries. “I can’t tell you 100 per cent [who] is going to be fit as something might happen,” Solskjaer said.”But hopefully Aaron and Anthony will last the training this week and be available for selection. If it’s for half a game or 30 minutes I don’t know but let’s see where they’re at.”  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Independent Agency Owners in Avoya Travel Network Find a Good Solution for Retirement

first_imgFt. Lauderdale, Fla. – August 22, 2017 – Avoya Travel®, the travel industry’s most innovative brand, shares how two successful Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network™ formed a creative solution to a question that travel professionals who have been in the industry for years are now starting to ask – how should I setup a plan to retire in a way that is best for me and my business? While more and more new travel professionals are joining the industry every day – for the Avoya Network, growth is up over 200% in 2017 –  there are many independent travel agency owners who have been working hard for years and are starting to think about retirement.  In fact, a recent report by Hot Travel Jobs showed that plans to retire have increased for both corporate and leisure travel agents. Carol Howell and Diedre and John Bloom’s solution for their retirement planning was to merge their Independent Agencies by forming an LLC with an agreement to protect each other’s commissions and clients. With Avoya’s support, they formed Bloom and Howell LLC and are now more successful than ever before, producing over $3 million in 2016. For Howell and the Blooms, their plan has already enabled John to enter retirement and just book his existing return clients, while Diedre and Carol are still actively claiming Avoya Live Leads™ and continuing to build their business. Their plan protects Howell’s and the Blooms’ assets and books of business should either Howell or the Blooms not be able to continue working. Howell would finish their existing client bookings and give that commission to the Blooms’ estate, and the Blooms would do the same for Howell. Their plan to transfer the business to the remaining partner has been made much easier now that they are partners in the same LLC. “Our plan provides peace of mind that our livelihood is protected and it is a logical path to our retirement. It has been seamless for our customers and hasn’t affected much of our day-to-day operations,” said Howell. “We like that we can still take our own Avoya Live Leads, give our clients the personalized service they expect from us, and take our own vacations. Avoya’s support has helped make it all possible, and with their Live Leads, reputation, and amazing technology we are able to run a successful business together.” Howell and the Blooms also sorted out all the remaining details such as E&O insurance and bank accounts. They simplified, and saved money at the same time, by keeping only one insurance policy and one business bank account. Even though Howell’s business is based in Michigan, and the Blooms’ is based in Washington, by using Avoya’s exclusive Agent Power™ technology they are all easily able to manage their bookings, share the work load, and support each other when needed, just as if they were in the same office.  Since Agent Power’s built-in commission tracking automatically accounts for their commissions, Howell and the Blooms can easily keep track of all their income and make sure it ends up quickly into their own personal bank account every week. “Our initial plan was to control the distribution of our commissions and our book of business should something happen to us. The partnership we’ve formed works because it’s based in friendship, respect, and trust of one another,” said John Bloom.  “It also works for our clients because we know how to sell each other’s specialties and share the same service values.” Howell and the Blooms met and became friends through Avoya.

Say No to Disposables with the Best Reusable Lunch Gear for Guys

first_img You Need One (Or More) of the Best Men’s Henley Shirts in Your Wardrobe $25 from Black+Blum $11 from Uncommon Goods Portion Control: The Best Meal Prep Containers on the Market Sprint Through Airport Security With These TSA-Approved Men’s Grooming Kits Sandwich Wrap Uncommon Goods Beeswax Reusable Sandwich Wrap – $11We tried a lot of cute modular sandwich containers and had to ask ourselves, do the best sandwiches really come in a uniform 3-inch-by-3-inch square shape? Not the kind we prefer, that’s for sure. That’s why, for our money, the best way to sustainably transport our lunchtime mainstay is the beeswax wrap. Made of organic cotton and coated in a mix of food-grade wax, coconut oil, and other natural preservatives, these cloths are sturdy-yet-pliable, breathable-yet-protective, and built to optimally protect your sandwich from getting mashed, soggy, or contaminated. They also pull double-duty as lid replacements for your leftover containers. Our pick is this one from Uncommon Goods, which comes with a handy attached elastic that keeps the whole thing together. $25 from Amazon Straw Klean Kanteen 5-Piece Straw Set – $10Environmental activists have been campaigning against plastic straws for years—we’ve had ample time to research the alternatives. And yet, when asked to make a selection, we were hard pressed to find an option we could really get behind. Bamboo seems like a natural choice, but it disintegrates quickly, requires hand-washing, and threatens to lodge splinters in your lips. Stainless steel is durable and dishwasher-safe, but not ideal if your beverage of choice happens to be warm. Glass is upscale, but it just feels like asking for a problem, especially if you’re carrying it to and from work. We found our perfect match with these picks from Kleen Kanteen, which offer the durability of stainless steel with a removable silicone sleeve that protects your lips from getting burned. They’re all dishwasher-safe and come with a handy straw brush to ensure that your morning smoothie doesn’t leave gunk that will mar the flavor of your after-work cocktail. Water Bottle Black+Blum Eau Good – $25Another oversaturated market, another embarrassment of options. From classic stainless steel to the ultra-insulated mugs to hefty hydration tanks made to withstand thirty-foot drops off a cliff, there are more water bottles on heaven and earth than we have thought of in our dreams. And then we stumbled across this water bottle from Black + Blum, and the decision became easy. We’ll admit to being instantly smitten with its hourglass shape and natural cork stopper, but what really sealed the deal for us was the charcoal filter stick included in the bottle. This feature is a godsend for anyone who has suffered from the taste of metallic tap water, or (shudder) a refrigerator water dispenser that hasn’t been cleaned or changed out in years. Just drop the charcoal stick into your bottle, fill with water, wait an hour, and you’ve got freshly filtered H2O at your disposal. The Black + Blum bottle comes in thick glass, but also offers a BPA-free plastic option for the butterfingered among us. Flatware To-Go Ware Repeat Utensil Set – $13-plusWe present for your consideration a classic of the genre. Made by the same folks who brought you the Chico bag, Repeat’s flatware is made of strong but lightweight bamboo that is both heat- and stain-resistant, so it doesn’t impart or absorb flavors. The kit thoughtfully includes a set of chopsticks and comes in a tough pouch made of recycled plastic outfitted with a carabiner, so it’s extra easy to keep track of. The utensils are bigger and sturdier than your average takeout plastic ware; while the fork tines and knife blade aren’t exactly sharp, they are tough enough to stand up to assertive use—you can easily spear and slice by exerting a little extra force. $54 from Vaya The 12 Best Laptop Bags for Men Lunch Bag Lifewit 9L Double Decker Lunch Bag – $20The double insulated compartment lets you store foods of different temperatures on different levels. You can also fit up to eight 12-oz cans of…soda…in the bottom compartment if you’re Friday pre-gaming in the office parking lot. $35 from Frank Green $10 from Klean Kanteen $25 from Amazon Meal Container Vaya Tyffyn Lunch Box – $38-plusFrom the outset, we were attracted to the tiffin, a stackable meal transportation kit traditionally used in India. Each stainless steel layer latches above the next, creating radiant heat that helps keep the food warm and makes the whole kit easy to carry. The one problem we encountered was insulation…or rather, the lack thereof. Hot food only stayed hot for so long, and if it was too hot, it burned our fingers. (First world problems, we know.) So imagine our delight when we found the Vaya Tyffyn, a leak-proof tiffin-style container made of copper-coated stainless steel for optimal heat maintenance. Better still, the Tyffyn’s VacuTherm insulated sleeve maintains food temperature for up to 6 hours, and the slim profile makes it easy to slip into a backpack. BPA-free, leak-resistant, and fitted with pressurized latches, the Tyffyn is the ideal grown-up lunchbox. $9 from Amazon $60 from Editors’ Recommendations If you’ve already mastered the art of making your own lunch, have all the gear you need to stave off environmental destruction, but want to go a step further and start meal prepping, check out the best options for meal prep containers on the market. These days, you don’t have to be a raving environmentalist to see the advantage in sustainable alternatives to disposable products. From no-straw policies at major coffee chains to municipal plastic bag taxes to full-scale plastic waste bans, the writing on the wall is pretty damn clear. The ecosystem has been telling us for a while now that it can’t take much more waste and we’re finally starting to listen.If you’re ready to be a good citizen of the planet by making the transition to a more sustainable way of living, it’s understandable to feel overwhelmed. Where do you start?A good place is with your lunch.Vaya Life/FacebookTake a second to think about how much plastic attends your average takeout lunch. Even grabbing an all-organic meal from the Whole Foods hot bar means a load of landfill fodder — cardboard containers, plastic clamshells, glass bottles, disposable cutlery, etc. Feeling guilty yet? You should.Trading it all in for sustainable, non-disposable lunchware is an easy way to not only lighten your carbon footprint but class things up a little. There’s just something a little more mature about consuming your midday meal from real dishes and flatware. Plus, it’s a handy reminder to do the things that contribute to your overall well-being, e.g., making and bringing your own meals from home, or drinking your recommended daily 64 ounces of water. Basically, sustainable lunchware is a shortcut to adulting. Who knew?Best of all, this nondisposable lunch ware works just as well for takeaway meals. Yes, you may garner some curious looks when you march into your local deli and load up your sustainable meal container from the hot bar. But these days, that curiosity is more likely to translate as admiring interest. After all, everybody loves a guy who makes a visible effort to do his part.Ready to take your lunch to the next level? We’ve combed through the growing panoply of options for non-disposable, sustainable lunchware, and separated the merely cute and clever from the practical and highly functional. The following list is our careful curation of the best sustainable lunchware options out there.Reusable and Sustainable Lunch GearThermal Mug Frank Green Stainless Steel Reusable Cup – $35The first non-disposable item to be popularly adopted by the masses, the thermal mug is an oversaturated market, with every conceivable size, design, material, and feature you can imagine. So imagine our surprise when along comes a cute little Australian number to make us do a double-take. With its cylindrical shape, stainless steel interior and colorful array of finishes, the Frank Green mug offers minimalist style and high functionality. We especially appreciate the removable basket on top that looks after tea drinkers with equal care as coffee drinkers. Best of all is the spout lock; just press the middle button in the top of the mug, and you’ve got an airtight seal that prevents spills even on the jankiest subway car. $13 from To-Go Ware Reusable Bags Stasher Reusable Silicone Bags – $8-plusCan we all be honest for once about plastic baggies? They’re about as disappointing as they are ubiquitous. We all use them, and yet we all consistently find our sandwiches smashed or our trail mix leaking through a hole. About the most they protect your food from is dust. Enter the Stasher bag, a food-grade silicone sleeve that is infinitely reusable, completely non-toxic, dishwasher friendly, and…are you ready for this? You’re not, but here goes anyway: you can reheat your food inside it. Microwave your leftover pasta, reheat last night’s enchiladas in the oven, even sous-vide a piece of salmon–the Stasher bag can take it all. We also happen to love that, as a Certified B Corporation, Stasher gives 1 percent of profits back to organizations that work to keep plastic out of the oceans (and out of our lives). $54 from Stasher $12 from Amazon Patagonia Goes 100% Sustainable with New Line Called Shell, Yeah!last_img read more

Class Up Your Dopp Kit with the New William Roam Steam Travel

first_img The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze $35 from William Roam Editors’ Recommendations The Opus OP15′ Is a Tricked-Out, Off-Road-Ready Travel Trailer Sprint Through Airport Security With These TSA-Approved Men’s Grooming Kits 7 Best Travel Coffee Mugs for Morning Joe To Go Getting ready for a packed season of weekend excursions and business trips, but don’t want to sacrifice your personal hygiene regime while on the road? Then you may want to consider investing in a ready-made kit filled to the brim with hair and skincare products, like the new Steam Travel Set from William Roam. William Roam is an American-made brand focused on crafting high-quality travel essentials for hoteliers and gents on the go. While folks can buy individual toiletries from the website (including shower gels, moisturizers, shampoos, lotions, and everything in between), the company also boasts a range of travel sets that mix-n-match products for a more streamlined user experience.One such set is the aforementioned Steam Travel Set, which features 15 different products from the William Roam line. While this number might seem like a lot, it’s pretty evenly split between fun-sized toiletries (like aloe soap, body lotion, shaving cream, toothpaste, bath salts, shampoo, and conditioner) and practical must-haves (shower cap, mending kit, shoe mitten, cotton swabs, shave kit, and toothbrush). Long story short: No matter the journey, the Steam set aims to have you covered. In fact, one of our editors took the kit to Europe last week to see how it would fair and found it to be more than enough for a week’s trip. Though the collection is indeed diverse, the toiletry items do share one defining characteristic — they all feature Meadowfoam oil sourced directly from the Willamette Valley in Oregon (The Manual’s home state). The oil is well-known for its skin-softening and antioxidant properties and has been shown to lock-in moisture for all-day comfort. In addition to these exfoliating benefits, the substance also has a warm fragrance that’s cozy without being too pungent. But where oh where to store these fantastic ointments, tinctures, and balms? Luckily, William Roam has you covered. All the products come packaged in a personal ditty bag, which features a nylon lining and satin zipper pull. Plop the kit on your hotel bathroom counter and let your new self-care routine spill forth! The STEAM set currently retails for $35. For more on the collection, check it out at William Roam!

Windstar Cruises Announces 2021 Alaska Sailings Cruise Tours

first_imgSmall ship cruise line’s most highly rated cruise destination now has a seven-day itinerary option, plus two new Signature Expeditions excursions locations Seattle, WA, October 7, 2019 — Windstar Cruises announces its 2021 Alaska season today, offering nine different journeys from June through September on four unique itineraries, including a new seven-day option from Vancouver to Juneau and the reverse. Scenic Alaska will feature coastal wilderness cruising along the Canadian Inside Passage, as well as time in Alaska’s Misty Fjords plus Tracy or Endicott Arms, with stops in Ketchikan, Sitka, Skagway (a first-time port for Windstar), and Juneau. Windstar also will offer far-reaching Cruise Tours for the comprehensive Alaska experience combining coastal cruises with overland explorations to Denali and Fairbanks in 2021. “We achieved the highest guest ratings in the company’s history during our second season in Alaska in 2019, proving that Windstar is the absolute best way to experience the majesty of Alaska,” says John Delaney, President of Windstar Cruises. “I was fortunate to have the opportunity to sail for a few days during our Alaska season and was able to visit the small native community of the Inian Islands and to kayak deep up in Tracy Arm – it was an incredible experience that is truly a life-changing adventure. Our 2019 season sold out quickly, and we encourage people to book early for 2021,” he added. While Windstar’s popular 11 (and more)-day itineraries in Alaska allow plenty of time for scenic cruising and in-depth exploration, Windstar’s new seven-day cruise is in response to guest demand for shorter options to explore Alaska in an immersive way. Guests will see something spectacular every day, with no days spent “at sea,” allowing them to get the most out of their Alaskan cruise in a shorter amount of time. With new Alaska itineraries and ports comes the opportunity for new shore excursions and experiences, including exclusive offerings as part of the line’s innovative Signature Expeditions program, where a team of six experts are on board sharing the history of the region, cultural tales, scientific discoveries, and insider knowledge. New 2021 Signature Expeditions include Zodiac cruises and kayaking in Icy Bay, a remote fjord near Prince William Sound that’s part of the Wrangell-Saint Elias Wilderness. In Barry Arm, three glaciers flow from the Chugach Mountains into the fjord, making the area magnificently picturesque. The location is perfect for Zodiac cruises and kayaking with Windstar’s Expedition Team because the area is relatively ice free with smooth waters. New 2021 shore excursions include experiences like taking the vintage White Pass & Yukon narrow-gauge train from Skagway through a panorama of mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, tunnels, and historic sites, or embarking on a Glacier Point wilderness safari, including catamaran cruising along ice-scoured fjords, hiking through dense rainforest, and paddling a canoe on a mountain lake to the stunning face of an ice wall. In addition to unique itineraries and excursions, Windstar also excels at bringing Alaska’s local bounty on board for guests to enjoy with their chefs’ focus on sourcing local ingredients, which will continue in 2021. These tasty items include seasonal huckleberries, reindeer and venison sausage, birch syrup, and of course seafood like King and Sockeye Salmon, Pacific Ling Cod, and King Crab. All 2021 Windstar Alaska sailings will take place aboard the reimagined 312-passenger Star Breeze, with 50 new suites, two new restaurants, an enhanced spa and fitness center, and more. Rates for 2021 Alaska sailings and cruise tours start at $2,999 per guest. To learn more about Windstar’s unique style of authentic small ship cruising in Alaska, contact a travel advisor or Windstar Cruises at 1-800-258-7245, or visit  About Windstar Cruises Windstar Cruises operates a six-ship fleet of small sailing and all-suite ships visiting approximately 300 ports and 80 countries sailing to Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, Asia, Alaska and British Columbia, Canada and New England, South Pacific and Tahiti. Windstar’s fleet is the market leader in small ship cruising and has just embarked on a $250 Million Dollar Star Plus Initiative to enhance its Star-class ships and the onboard guest accommodations and experiences. Calling on hidden harbors, off-the-beaten-path and popular ports, the boutique cruise line carries 148 to 312 passengers on six small ships and takes travelers on cruises that are 180 degrees from ordinary. Windstar is known for immersive experiences and destination authenticity, port-intensive itineraries, exceptional award-winning service, and an innovative culinary program with culinary-themed cruises as the Official Cruise Line of the James Beard Foundation. Windstar Cruises is a part of Xanterra Travel Collection, an award-winning, globally diversified travel company offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences in some of the most beautiful and iconic places on earth.

Todd Snyder and Reyn Spooner Put a Fresh Spin on the Hawaiian

first_imgHawaiian heritage brand Reyn Spooner and New York designer Todd Snyder have teamed up for a limited-edition capsule collection that’s all about the Aloha spirit. The new line comes fresh off the heels of Snyder’s spring and summer 2019 runway show, which featured archival Reyn Spooner prints and fabrics on an array of different items, including long-sleeved shirts, caps, and pants. The collection was bold and colorful, a befitting homage to the classic Reyn Spooner aesthetic that also felt fresh, fashion-forward, and wholly contemporary. Everlane Wants You to Have a Daily Uniform to Make Dressing Easier Why Your Desk Chair Matters and the 9 Best Ones to Boost Your Productivity While you’re there, you can also check out Todd Snyder’s most recent collaboration with Timex, a vintage timepiece inspired by the designer’s father. For more Hawaiian shirts, check out the latest and best from Reyn Spooner and then take a look at JFK’s famous Aloha shirt that recently sold at auction. “Reyn Spooner is the original in its space and I have been feeling the return of printed Aloha shirts for the past few seasons,” Snyder explained in a statement. “I wanted to do something authentic, so I decided to go to the source. Like most of my collaborations, I like to work with partners who invented the originals also — the brand was started by a tailor in Hawaii. That really topped it off!”The authentic connection was a hit on the runway, so much so that the two brands decided to take the catwalk collaboration straight to the online market. The continuation offers five iconic Reyn Spooner printed fabrics in new silhouettes, ranging from Hawaiian shirts to shorts and suits to pants. You can also snag the Aloha prints on specialty totes and hats.While all the items are playful and fun, the exclusive Reyn Spooner X Todd Snyder Unconstructed Blazer (with matching pants) is a clear standout. Not only is the suit constructed entirely of breathable cotton, but the print (“Old School Reyns” from 1985) features a gorgeous garland of monstera leaves, hibiscus, and Tahitian gardenia, making for a look that’s stylish and totally summer-ready.Wanna get into the new capsule collection?

Pickpocket Prevention Dont Become a Mark While Traveling

first_img WhistlePig Teams Up With Four Chefs on a New Whiskey The 12 Best Laptop Bags for Men The Best Men’s Work Pants for Getting Down to Business The Big List of Brands with Lifetime Warranties: Buy It Once, Have It Forever Editors’ Recommendations Jacek DylagMost travelers are convinced they could never be pickpocketed. If you keep your wits about you, don’t get too drunk when traveling, and know how and where to stow your belongings, you probably won’t either — probably. However, pickpocketing is still the most prevalent non-violent crime in major cities around the world. While many of us know what we should do to avoid becoming a mark, it’s all too easy to let our guard down while on vacation. Hell, even travel guru Rick Steves recently admitted to being pickpocketed. It can quite literally happen to anyone. Here are the best ways to tip the odds in your favor.Lock Down Your WalletAnti-theft travel clothing and accessories have come a long way in the last two decades. A hidden money belt (the kind worn under your clothing) might seem extremely uncool, but having all your cash and credit cards stolen is even less cool. Consider stashing half your money and credit cards in a money belt, and keeping the remainder (including a few expired “decoy” cards) in a zippered pocket on your person. Pickpocket-proof pants like those from Clothing Arts boast double- and triple-secure pockets for safeguarding anything you’re toting around. To take it a step further, invest in a slashproof day pack like those from Pacsafe .Keep Your Head on a Swivel, Especially in CrowdsThe most popular tourist attractions are feeding grounds for pickpockets. They’re full of oblivious tourists flush with cash and valuables. While aboard public transportation and at major parks, monuments, even churches — anywhere packed with people — stay especially vigilant.Don’t Pack Anything You Can’t Afford to LoseTechnology has made travel easier and more enjoyable in so many ways. Cameras, laptops, and smartphones are all far more compact, versatile, and powerful than ever. That means that even average travelers are toting at least a thousand dollars’ worth of gear in their day packs at any one time. It’s tempting to want to pack everything you might need. But, carefully consider whether a laptop is essential on a long weekend away.Likewise, for shorter trips that aren’t of the once-in-a-lifetime variety, maybe leave your $3,000 DSLR camera at home and rely instead on your smartphone for photos. If you absolutely must pack everything and the kitchen sink, consider leaving most of your valuables in the hotel room (although this isn’t foolproof). Consider travel insurance as well. Comprehensive plans with theft protection can be found for less than $100 for most trips of a week or less.Leave the Designer Goods at HomeThis could fall under the above tip, but it’s worthwhile to call out on its own. While packing for a vacation, it’s tempting to want to bring your favorite — and likely most expensive — designer watches, shoes, ascots, and sunglasses. The flashier your accessories, however, the more likely you are to become a target for pickpockets and hotel room thieves. You might not be able to leave your laptop at home, but you can certainly survive a few days in the Caribbean without your Rolex or Louis Vuitton bar cart luggage. It’s almost always best to leave these at home. 15 Best Subscription Boxes for Men Who Love Giftslast_img read more

SNCLavalin viewed as jewel of Quebec Inc that needs to be protected

first_imgTORONTO — For more than a century, SNC-Lavalin has been viewed with pride in Quebec as it grew from a small firm specializing in hydraulics into a global engineering and construction giant.Founded in 1911, it gained a reputation for building a large dam in Quebec that spearheaded the province’s development of hydroelectricity and developing the skill sets for thousands of Quebec workers.Today the company has 50,000 employees around the world, after adding 18,000 with the acquisition of WS Atkins in 2017. However, its head count in Canada has fallen to 9,000 — including 3,400 in Quebec — from 20,000 in 2013.For that, the Montreal-based company is seen as a provincial crown jewel that needs to be protected despite having its reputation tarnished in 2012 over bribery allegations that led to convictions of several senior executives, says an industry observer.The province is acutely sensitive about losing another corporate headquarters — and associated jobs in law, accounting and consulting — following the exodus of many in the 1970s and later the sale of aluminum producer Alcan to Rio Tinto and Rona to U.S. rival Lowe’s, said Karl Moore, a professor at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management.“There’s a sense that we don’t want to lose any more corporate headquarters,” he said in an interview.The new provincial government appears ready to assist SNC-Lavalin from any takeover attempt by reportedly putting it on a list of 10 “strategically important” companies.Protecting Quebec business champions is not new. Governments of all stripes have helped companies, including Bombardier Inc.And so, the reported political pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office on former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould — denied by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — to help SNC-Lavalin avoid a criminal prosecution is viewed differently in Quebec, said Moore.“The expectation in Quebec is that the prime minister should have put his oar in. He should have said this is a great company with a proud history in Montreal. You guys are pushing it too much. Let’s be more like the Americans and the Brits and be a little bit less silly about it.”SNC-Lavalin has declined to comment on the latest imbroglio, but took out full-page ads in four of Canada’s most influential newspapers in October in a bid to rally public support after federal prosecutors refused to negotiate a compensation agreement.In it, CEO Neil Bruce apologized for wrongdoing prior to 2012 that has tarnished the company’s reputation and said it has made “fundamental changes” in its culture and governance.SNC and two of its subsidiaries were charged in February 2015 with paying nearly $48 million to public officials in Libya between 2001 and 2011 to influence government decisions.The RCMP has also charged the company, its construction division and a subsidiary with one charge each of fraud and corruption for allegedly defrauding various Libyan organizations of roughly $130 million. If found guilty, it could be barred from bidding on federal contracts for a decade.A former CEO, Pierre Duhaime, is serving 20 months of house arrest after pleading guilty to a single charge in connection with a bribery scandal around the construction of a $1.3-billion Montreal hospital.Yanai Elbaz, a former MUHC senior manager, pleaded guilty in December to accepting a bribe and was sentenced to 39 months in prison. Former SNC-Lavalin executive Riadh Ben Aissa pleaded guilty to a charge of using forged documents last July and was sentenced to 51 months in prison.SNC-Lavalin has also faced legal scrutiny overseas. The World Bank debarred the company and more than 100 affiliates in 2013 for up to 10 years following misconduct in relation to projects in Bangladesh and Cambodia.SNC recently cut its guidance for fiscal 2018 by 50 per cent over problems at a mining project awarded in 2016. Its revenues are expected to be around $10.1 billion, up from $9.3 billion in 2017.Oil and gas is the largest business segment, accounting for 36 per cent of 2017 revenues, infrastructure 23 per cent, Atkins 19 per cent, power 14 per cent, mining and metallurgy five per cent and capital three per cent.More than half of its revenues came from the Americas, 23 per cent the Middle East and Africa, 14 per cent Asia-Pacific and 11 per cent Europe.Its tentacles are very broad, having worked on the Canada Line rapid transit extension in Vancouver, Confederation Line in Ottawa, the Champlain Bridge in Montreal and electric train network in Montreal. It is a member of a consortium that owns the 407 ETR toll road in Toronto and owns Candu Energy.Ross Marowits, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

JC Penney names Home Depot executive next CEO New leader faces challenges

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – J.C. Penney’s newly tapped CEO has a big challenge ahead of him: The troubled chain is showing signs of improvement after racking up billions in losses, but still hasn’t figured out how to get shoppers back into its department stores.Penney said Monday that Marvin Ellison, a 30-year retail veteran and executive vice-president of stores at Home Depot, will become its CEO next August. Ellison will be the first black CEO in the company’s 112-year history.Ellison succeeds Mike Ullman, a former Penney CEO who came out of retirement last year to take the helm again. His mission was to stabilize the business following the ouster of Ron Johnson, a former Apple executive who tried unsuccessfully to reinvent the beleaguered chain by getting rid of sales and some basic merchandise. That led to billions in profit and sales losses.The company’s profit losses — which have amounted to a total of $3.16 billion in 11 of the last 12 quarters — have slowed significantly under Ullman’s leadership. But the company is still in the red, and analysts say Ellison’s challenge will be to fix the fundamental problems that caused Penney to lose customers in the first place.They say the retailer doesn’t have merchandise that sets it apart from rivals like Macy’s and H&M. Its stores are drab and unexciting. And its website doesn’t offer the selection and services that shoppers like.“While bringing in a credible new CEO has some benefits, J.C. Penney’s customers are leaving the store,” said Michael Binetti, an analyst at UBS in a note to clients Monday.WHAT WENT WRONGPenney is looking to Ellison, 49, to help right the ship. Ellison spent 12 years with Home Depot and before that, 15 years at Target. He has expertise in store operations and logistics, but lacks experience in fashion.Ellison, who also will join Penney’s board, will become president in November, before taking the CEO title next year. At that time, Mike Ullman will become executive chairman of the board, serving for a year.It’s rare for a management transition to last that long, but Walter Loeb, a New York-based retail consultant, said the time is needed. “I think (Ellison) is an excellent leader … but he needs time to learn the fashion business,” he said.Ullman said in a statement that he looks forward to working closely with Ellison and the rest of the team in the coming months to ensure a “smooth transition and a successful future for J.C. Penney.”Penney said Ullman and Ellison weren’t available for interviews on Monday.Ullman was CEO for seven years before Johnson was brought in to modernize the stores. But customers didn’t like Johnson’s changes, and Johnson left after 17 months. Ullman, who was brought back in April 2013, began restoring sales and basic merchandise that the company ditched under Johnson’s tenure.Under Ullman, Penney has recorded three straight quarters of increases in sales at established stores. Still, those increases haven’t outweighed last year’s drastic declines.In the latest fiscal year that ended Feb. 1, Penney recorded a loss of $1.39 billion, while revenue dropped 8.7 per cent to $11.86 billion. And last week, Penney warned that its sales at stores open at least a year last month were weaker than expected. It also cut its outlook for sales at established stores for the current quarter.FIXING THE PROBLEMThe CEO announcement comes after Penney last week unveiled a strategy that it said would boost sales by $2.55 billion over next three years. It entails improving the productivity of its stores’ home department, expanding e-commerce and sprucing up areas like jewelry, shoes and handbags.Penney sees the opportunity for an additional $1 billion in sales from continued market-share growth. That would bring the chain’s annual revenue to $14.5 billion by fiscal 2017. Still, that’s well below the $17.3 billion it generated before sales went into a freefall under Johnson.The company also has focused on cutting costs. Earlier this year, it cut 2,000 jobs and shuttered 33 stores. But the company didn’t announce any more store closures last week as analysts had expected.On news of the CEO appointment, J.C. Penney’s shares closed up 3 cents, or less than a per cent, to $7.09, on Monday. That’s after having risen more than 3 per cent earlier in the day.J.C. Penney shares have lost more than 80 per cent of their value since early 2012 when investor enthusiasm was high over Johnson’s turnaround strategy._____Follow Anne D’Innocenzio at by Anne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Press Posted Oct 13, 2014 6:57 am MDT JC Penney names Home Depot executive next CEO; New leader faces challenges read more

Opinion Three position groups to keep an eye on during the Ohio

OSU then-redshirt senior Corey Smith (84) and then-sophomore Cam Burrows (16) face off during the 2015 Spring Game on April 18 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe 2015 Ohio State football team came into the year with very few questions, riding a wave of consistency and experience. The same cannot be said for coach Urban Meyer’s 2016 squad heading into its annual spring game on Saturday.Most of the headlines surrounding the program this offseason centered around the nine players leaving early for the NFL draft, including defensive stalwart Joey Bosa and offensive playmakers Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas. Returning just six starters — three on offense, three on defense — from last year’s team that went 12-1, there are a lot of new faces at the top of the depth chart for the Buckeyes.Although most of these competitions won’t likely be settled until the final days of fall camp, here are a few position battles to watch for in the Scarlet and Gray scrimmage.Offensive lineBehind what might be considered the most intimidating front line in school history, “The Slobs” have a remodeled look in 2016. Redshirt senior Pat Elflein and redshirt junior Billy Price return up front for OSU. They’ll be looking to lead a group of unheralded, or perhaps even unheard of, Buckeyes who will try to fill sizable holes. Elflein is moving over to center from his previous stake at right guard, while Price is set to slide over from left guard to right.Junior Jamarco Jones is thought to be the replacement at left tackle for possible first-round pick Taylor Decker, who manned the position for the past three years. At 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds, the former U.S. Army All-American has not yet had a chance in the spotlight despite being ranked as the No. 4 offensive tackle by 247Sports in his class.For the last two spots on the line, true sophomore Isaiah Prince, true freshman Michael Jordan, redshirt sophomore Demetrius Knox and redshirt junior Evan Lisle are all aiming to start on first-year offensive line coach Greg Studrawa’s front line.Prince was the first member of the 2015 recruiting class to lose his black stripe, granting him rights to practice with the team. Prince, Jordan, Knox and Lisle all were consensus top 100 players in their respective recruiting classes.Although it’s not a real game, the live action that the young offensive linemen will see should be valuable for Meyer to assess what the best five-man unit will be in the regular season. LinebackerOnly one member of Luke Fickell’s starting linebacker corps returns for the 2016 season. With two-year starters Darron Lee and Joshua Perry both gone, junior Raekwon McMillan — already named a team captain — mans the middle for the Buckeyes this season, while young, unproven talent is competing for the two outside linebacker positions.Two former Ohio Mr. Football candidates — Dante Booker, who won it in 2014, and Justin Hilliard, a finalist the year after — were highly touted recruits who haven’t had a chance yet to shine. Expect the two to consistently earn playing time all year, as Meyer has shown he likes to rotate a lot of bodies into the mix at linebacker. Booker, who had 22 tackles last season as a two-deep linebacker, is an early favorite over Hilliard to earn a starting job.The other linebacker who is expected to receive plenty of first-team reps is redshirt junior Chris Worley. Along with Booker in 2015, Worley played on the second group and recorded 17 tackles last season.Wide receiverLast season, Thomas was without a doubt the most talented pass catcher on the field. Now with Thomas, Jalin Marshall and Braxton Miller leaving empty spots, Meyer’s offense is desperately looking for someone from the inexperienced group of receivers to emerge.Returning from a broken leg last season against Indiana is redshirt senior wide receiver Corey Smith. However, as he only collected 25 receptions and 317 receiving yards in a year and a half with OSU, it’s worrisome for Meyer to count on Smith for big numbers this season.Also recovering from a season-ending leg injury, this one suffered in fall camp, Noah Brown has a much-anticipated 2016 campaign ahead considering all reports out of the 2015 camp were positive from Meyer and his team. At 6-foot-2, the 222-pound wideout has great size and control in the air. The redshirt sophomore is known as a physical receiver, which has been a staple in Meyer’s spread offense. If healthy enough to go, Brown will be a heavy favorite for a starting receiver position.Dontre Wilson is another member of the unit who could be looked to for big production in 2016. Yeah, remember this guy? Playing a lot his freshman campaign in 2013, the 5-foot-10 speedster from Texas enters his senior season with his career thus far been marred by injuries. Only at 180 pounds when he arrived on campus and now listed at 195 pounds, Wilson has one season to live up to the hype OSU fans had for him when he first entered the OSU facilities.Finally, if you’re going to watch one skill position player in Saturday’s game, look out for Austin Mack. The early-enrollee freshman has very impressive athleticism and knowledge of the position for a player who is just 18 years old. Mack is a U.S. Army All-American who showcased his skills impressively against future OSU talent in July at OSU’s Friday Night Lights high school showcase event. Don’t be surprised if Mack emerges as the standout in this year’s spring game. read more

Football Billy Price Denzel Ward and Nick Bosa named AFCA firstteam AllAmericans

Ohio State sophomore defensive lineman Nick Bosa (97) sacks Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook (12) in the third quarter of the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe awards continued to pile up for a trio of Ohio State players. Redshirt senior center Billy Price, junior cornerback Denzel Ward and sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa were named first-team All-Americans by the American Football Coaches Association on Wednesday.The announcement comes just two days after Price and Ward were named first-team All-Americans by the Associated Press. Bosa was on the second-team. All three were first-team All-Big Ten members.This is the second consecutive season Price has been named an AFCA first-team All-American as a right guard. The redshirt senior also took home the Rimington Trophy, given to the nation’s top center, and was named the Big Ten Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year. During the 2017 season, Price set the Ohio State record for consecutive games started, having started every game of his career since his redshirt freshman season.Nick and Joey Bosa become only the second pair of Ohio State brothers to both be named first-team All-Americans, joining Ray and Archie Griffin. Nick has continued the legacy of the Bosa name, joining Joey as fellow Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year winners by taking home the hardware in 2017. Bosa has 32 tackles — 18 solo and 14 assisted — with 14.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks. He also forced a fumble.Ward has shined in his first year as a starter, picking up two interceptions, 15 passes defended, 30 solo tackles, seven assisted tackles and two for a loss. He was named a finalist for the Thorpe Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back, but lost to Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. read more

He also accredited this outcome to the various teaching programs which have been implemented within the educational sector.Some 13, 329 students from across Guyana wrote the NGSA on April 12 and 13 this year, two weeks earlier than last year.NGSA is a placement examination offered at the end of the primary cycle to determine which secondary school students will be allotted.During the two-day examination period, the students were assessed in four subject areas: English Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies – two on each day.Each subject consisted of two papers – Paper Two was the first paper written and consisted of essay-type questions while Paper One consisted of multiple choice questions.In 2016, some 14,500 students wrote the NGSA examination.At that time, the top spot was taken by Dharmic Rama Krishna’s Aryan Singh and Mae’s Anthony Ferreira with a tie of 568 marks.Serena Razack of Graham’s Hall Primary School followed narrowly behind with 565 marks.A more detailed and analytical report will be published in a subsequent release. read more

40hour gaming session kills 21yearold

first_imgPlaying a game for 40 hours isn’t going to do anyone’s health much good, but it seems for some people it can be fatal.In July last year a teenager died after playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight at an Internet cafe in Taiwan. He didn’t eat anything, was found slumped over the desk, but managed to get up and walk a few steps before collapsing and dying. Now the same thing has happened again.A 21-year-old man by the name of Xiao Jun from Guangxi, China, died over the holiday period after playing an unnamed MMO for 40 hours at an Internet cafe. In this case he did take short breaks in order to eat some food and visit the bathroom, but it clearly wasn’t enough of a rest for his body. It also didn’t help that he arrived at the cafe at 2am on Christmas day after completing a shift at a karaoke bar. So he’d already been awake for most of the day before working.There definitely seems to be a pattern forming for these deaths. They all occur in cafes, involve gaming sessions well over a day in length, and include little or no nourishment for the body of the person who dies. Surely such things could be stopped with a few rules put in place?In 2011, Vietnam took the extreme measure of banning online gaming between 10pm and 8am each day. China also lets parents monitor and control their children’s gaming habits, but that clearly doesn’t work for young adults. It seems as though the Internet and gaming cafes need to implement rules, for example, why not limit sessions to 12 hours and only allow access to a PC again by a customer after an hour break? Combine that with no more than two 12 hour sessions in a row, and you stop someone getting anywhere near the 40-hour mark.via Ubergizmolast_img read more

Marriage is literally good for the heart new study finds

first_img Image: Mihail Pustovit via Shutterstock Marriage is (literally) good for the heart, new study finds The study examined ethnically varied populations in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia. Jun 19th 2018, 1:32 PM 26 Comments By AFP Tuesday 19 Jun 2018, 1:32 PM Share87 Tweet Email12 Short URL Image: Mihail Pustovit via Shutterstock 13,250 Views LIVING INTO OLD age with a partner may help ward off heart disease and stroke, researchers have said.A sweeping survey of research conducted over the last two decades covering more than two million people aged 42 to 77 found that being hitched significantly reduced the risk of both maladies, they reported in the medical journal Heart.The study examined ethnically varied populations in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia, adding weight to the results.Compared to people living in spousal union, the divorced, widowed or never married were 42% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and 16% more likely to have coronary heart disease, the study found.The risk of dying was likewise elevated for the non-married, by 42% from coronary heart disease and by 55% from stroke.The results were nearly the same for men and women, except for stroke, to which men were more susceptible.“These findings may suggest that marital status should be considered in the risk assessment for cardiovascular disease,” concluded a team led by Chun Wai Wong, a researcher at Royal Stoke Hospital’s department of cardiology, in Stoke-on-Trent in Britain.Four-fifths of all cardiovascular disease can be attributed to a proven set of risk factors: advanced age, being a man, high-blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, and diabetes.Marriage, in other words, could be an important share of the missing 20%.More precisely, living together – with or without a wedding band – is probably the operative factor, if indeed conjugal status has any impact at all.But most of the 34 studies reviewed by Wong and colleagues did not identify couples out of wedlock or same-sex unions, so it was not possible to know whether, statistically, such arrangements were the equivalent of being wed.Because the study was observational rather than based on a controlled experiment – something scientists can do with mice but not humans – no clear conclusions could be drawn as to cause-and-effect.That leaves open the question of why marriages may be “protective”.“There are various theories,” the researchers said in a statement.Having someone around to take care of one’s health problems and keep track of one’s meds is probably a plus, as are two incomes or pensions instead of one.More intangibly, not living alone is thought to be good for morale, and for neural stimulation. People living in couples, earlier research has shown, also have lower rates of dementia.© – AFP 2018 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Facebook Wants To Connect You With Your Secret Crush

first_img Facebook has been connecting friends and family for 15 years. But can it provide a love connection?Kicking off its annual F8 conference, the social network on Tuesday introduced a new dating feature that lets people confidentially expose their “Secret Crush.”Taking on apps like Tinder and Bumble, Facebook initially unveiled its online dating service at last year’s F8—rolling it out first in Colombia, then to folks in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, and Thailand.Users must opt in to create a separate profile and receive recommended matches based on preferences, interests, and, if desired, mutual mates or groups and events.Facebook in November released new actions that allow you take a second look at previously passed-over candidates and pause your profile. Additional functions include the ability to review a blocked list, support for non-metric units, and more interactive profile content.“People have told us that they believe there is an opportunity to explore potential romantic relationships within their extended circle of friends,” the company wrote in a blog post.Enter Secret Crush, which lets you select up to nine Facebook friends in whom you want to “express interest” (i.e. hook up with).Any of your picks who have opted into Dating will receive a notification saying someone has a crush on them. And, fingers crossed, if someone adds you to their list, it’s a match!“If your crush isn’t on Dating, doesn’t create a Secret Crush list, or doesn’t put you on their list, no one will know that you’ve entered a friend’s name,” Facebook ensured.Part one of the two-day conference was chock-a-block with software updates and security features:MessengerA completely re-engineered service will roll out “later this year,” featuring video sharing and a desktop app.FacebookA simpler, faster, more immersive desktop site is expected in the “next few months.” The redesign makes it easier to access and use Groups, meet new friends, see upcoming events, and ship Marketplace items.InstagramLook for donation stickers in Stories, an improved camera design, and the ability to shop for looks without leaving the app.AR/VRPre-orders for Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S are now open. WhatsApp and end-to-end encryption are coming to Portal, which will expand internationally this fall.“With each feature and product announced today,” Tuesday’s blog post said, “we want to help people discover their communities, deepen their connections, find new opportunities, and simply have fun.“We’re excited to see all the ways developers, creators, and entrepreneurs use these tools as we continue to build more private ways for people to communicate,” the company added.Watch all F8 keynotes on the Facebook for Developers Page.More on’s Virtual Assistant to Challenge Alexa, Siri7 Icebreakers for Facebook’s New Dating ServiceGeek’s Guide to Online Dating Stay on target Podcasts Are TV Shows Now With ‘Limetown’ Trailer7 Icebreakers for Facebook’s New Dating Service last_img read more

Firefox not remembering the last window size This may fix it

first_imgFirefox not remembering the last window size? This may fix it! by Martin Brinkmann on April 24, 2019 in Firefox – 22 commentsSome months ago, I started to notice that the Firefox web browser was not remembering its window size when closed and reopened.I usually run Firefox on one half of the screen on a 1920×1080 monitor on a Windows PC. Firefox would open and by doing so, change its window size so that a small gap was left at the bottom of the browser window and the Windows taskbar.While it is easy enough to make the browser fit the space, e.g. by dragging its window to the left side of the monitor to have it expand automatically, it was something that left me puzzled.It did not really bother me too much but when a user on Reddit pointed to a possible solution, I had to try it to see if the proposed solution would fix the issue on my end.The user suggested that Firefox’s fingerprinting protections had something to do with it. Firefox users can enable extra fingerprinting protection in the browser by changing a preference. Doing so blocks or mitigates certain fingerprinting techniques and data gathering methods.One of the methods affects window dimensions; basically, what Firefox does is set windows to rounded dimensions automatically if the feature is enabled to mitigate fingerprinting techniques that read the window size.I decided to give it a try to see if fingerprinting protection was enabled in the browser, and if turning it off would resolve the screen size issue.Here is what I did:Load about:config in the Firefox address bar.Confirm that you will be careful if the warning message is displayed.Search for privacy.resistFingerprinting. If the preference is set to True, the extra fingerprinting protection is enabled, if it is set to False, it is disabled.If True, set it to False and restart Firefox.The preference was set to True on the system. I changed its status to False and restarted Firefox. Firefox did remember the correct window dimensions this time when I restarted it, and further tests showed that the browser remembered the window dimensions each time I started it.So, if you run into that issue you may want to check the preference to see if it is responsible for that. It is up to you then to keep the protection enabled and live with the rounded window dimensions, or turn it off and have Firefox remember the right window dimensions each time.SummaryArticle NameFirefox not remembering the last window size?

Red Hat releases Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 beta deprecates Btrfs filesystem

first_imgEarlier this month, Red Hat released RHEL 7.6. Now, Red Hata Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8 beta version is available with more container friendliness than ever. This RHEL release is based on the Red Hat community Linux May 2018 Fedora 28 release. It uses the upstream Linux kernel 4.18 for its foundation. RHEL 8 beta introduces the concept of Application Streams. With this, userspace components can now update more quickly than core operating system packages and without having to wait for the next major version of the operating system. With Application Streams, you can also keep multiple versions of the same package around. RHEL 8 beta features RHEL 8 beta introduces a single and consistent user control panel through the RHEL Web Console. Systems admins of all experience levels can easily manage RHEL servers locally and remotely, including virtual machines. RHEL 8 beta uses IPVLAN to support efficient Linux networking in containers through connecting containers nested in virtual machines (VMs) to networking hosts. RHEL 8 beta also has a new TCP/IP stack with Bandwidth and Round-trip propagation time (BBR) congestion control. This increases performance and minimizes latency for services like streaming video or hosted storage. RHEL 8 is made secure with OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3 support and system-wide Cryptographic Policies. Red Hat’s lightweight, open standards-based container toolkit comes with Buildah (container building), Podman (running containers) and Skopeo (sharing/finding containers). RPM’s YUM package manager has also been updated. Yum 4 delivers faster performance, fewer installed dependencies and more choices of package versions to meet specific workload requirements. File Systems in RHEL 8 beta RedHat has deprecated the Btrfs filesystem. This has really confused developers who are surprised why RedHat would opt out of it especially considering that it is also used for ChromeOS’s Crostini Linux application container. From hacker news: “I’m still incredibly sad about that, especially as Btrfs has become a really solid filesystem over the last year or so in the upstream kernel.” “Indeed, Btrfs is uniquely capable and important. It has lightweight snapshots of directory trees, and fully supports NFS exports and kernel namespaces, so it can easily solve technical problems that currently can’t be easily solved using ZFS or other filesystems.” Stratis is the new volume-managing file system in RHEL 8 beta. Stratis abstracts away the complexities inherent to data management via an API. Also, File System Snapshots provide for a faster way of conducting file-level tasks, like cloning virtual machines, while saving space by consuming new storage only when data changes. Existing customers and subscribers can test Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 beta. You can also view the README file for instructions on how to download and install the software.

suggests So-called debridement involves removing dead or infected tissue and any foreign bodies or bacteria from slow-healing woundssuch as with a scalpel or special cream It’s traditionally performed when a patient first comes in with a woundsaid Dr Robert Kirsnera dermatologist and wound researcher from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine “The real question ishow often do you have to do this” added Kirsnerwho co-wrote a commentary published with the new study Close to seven million Americans each year have a chronic woundfrom diabetes or other causes A few small studies have suggested some types of wounds tend to heal faster with frequent cleaning For their reportJames Wilcox from Healogics – a company that runs wound care centers – and his colleagues tried to expand on those data by reviewing the records of about 155000 patients treated at one of 525 wound centers Between 2008 and 2012those patients were treated for a total of 313000 woundsincluding diabetic foot and pressure ulcerssurgical wounds and cuts from accidents or other trauma The average wound was cleaned out twice The researchers found that healing time varied by the type of woundbut was typically faster with more frequent debridement For examplediabetic foot ulcers healed in an average of 21 days when they were debrided at least weekly and in 76 dayson averagewhen they were debrided once every two weeks or more Traumatic wounds healed in 14 dayson averagewith frequent debridement and in 49 days when they were cleaned out least often Healing time was also longer for deeper and wider woundsthe research team wrote in JAMA DermatologyBacteria can grow over wounds in colonies called biofilmsKirsner said Much like brushing your teeth prevents biofilms from growing on themdebridement may keep wounds free of bacterial colonieshe added But debridement isn’t quite as easy and innocuous as teeth brushing “There’s effort in doing it – there’s effort as far as cost and in theory there could be pain associated with it” Kirsner told Reuters Health “When you perform a surgical procedurethere’s always the risk of infection You wouldn’t want to do debridements if they weren’t necessary” He said patients in the study who had their wounds cleaned out more frequently may have also been better at sticking to other care recommendations – so it’s not clear the faster healing time was due solely to extra debridement Or”It’s possible that if you went to a specialized wound center every week and got a lot of treatments including debridementthat debridement may not have been the only critical thing that was done during that treatment” StillKirsner saidthe evidence is pointing toward a benefit from more frequent cleaning And having slow-healing wounds regularly evaluated is

friends posted negative emotions in their status updates on Facebook Emotions can spread among users of online social networks such as Facebook a new study has found Social scientists at Cornell University the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Facebook reduced the amount of either positive or negative stories that appeared in the news feed of 689003 randomly selected Facebook users and found that the so-called “emotional contagion” effect worked both ways “People who had positive content experimentally reduced on their Facebook news feed for one week used more negative words in their status updates” said Jeff Hancock professor of communication at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and co-director of its Social Media Lab “When news feed negativity was reduced the opposite pattern occurred: Significantly more positive words were used in peoples’ status updates” Hancock said The experiment is the first to suggest that emotions expressed via online social networks influence the moods of others the researchers said Researchers in the study never saw the content of actual posts per Facebook’s data use policy; instead they counted only the occurrence of positive and negative words in more than 3 million posts with a total of 122 million words They found that 4 million of those words were “positive” and 18 million were “negative” Hancock said peoples’ emotional expressions on Facebook predicted their friends’ emotional expressions even days later “We also observed a withdrawal effect: People who were exposed to fewer emotional posts in their news feed were less expressive overall on the following days” Hancock said “This observation and the fact that people were more emotionally positive in response to positive emotion updates from their friends stands in contrast to theories that suggest viewing positive posts by friends on Facebook may somehow affect us negatively” he added “In fact this is the result when people are exposed to less positive content rather than more” he said For all the latest Lifestyle News download shlf1314n Express App More Related NewsPublished: October 20 2017 8:21 pm Astronauts went
