Paul Summers | Sunday, 30th May, 2021 | More on: SMT SSON This is not to say that there’s aren’t a few things to bear in mind. While the ongoing charge of 0.9% certainly isn’t the highest in the market, it’s still high. Regardless of how manager Simon Barnard performs from here, that fee will always be due. One also needs to bear in mind that relatively youthful Barnard doesn’t have a long track record. This, however, is a risk I’m comfortable with. With its premium to net asset value dropping in recent weeks, I’m taking advantage while I can.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The rotation from growth to value stocks by investors over the last few months has hit the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust‘s (LSE: SMT) share price. On Friday, it closed at 1,195p. That’s 15% off the all-time high it hit earlier in 2021.Aside from the valuations of holdings such as Tesla taking a (long overdue) tumble, SMT has faced another recent setback in the announcement that co-manager James Anderson will be retiring.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As a long-term investor, however, I’ve been buying more of the investment trust in May. Here’s why.Disruption…on the cheapWhile the departure of Anderson is a shame, it’s not a complete surprise. A 21 year-stint (22 by the time he actually leaves) is a long time to manage the same fund. The need for fresh blood and new investment ideas is both inevitable and healthy. Notwithstanding this, I’m reassured that Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust’s other manager, Tom Slater, is staying put. This should make the eventual succession process a lot smoother.  SMT’s low ongoing charge (0.36%) also remains a big pull for me. This is a very cheap way of getting access to some of the most disruptive growth stocks in the world. It’s even on par with many passively-managed exchange-traded funds. Personally, I’m a big fan of having both active and passive elements to my portfolio so long as the fees charged by the latter can be justified. I don’t think this has ever been a problem when it comes to the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust. It’s climbed 359% in value over the last five years.center_img Paul Summers owns shares in Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust and Smithson Investment Trust.

Rugby Rant: Tip tackle rulings inconsistent

first_imgInconsistency should not be allowed to reign.This was published in the March 2013 edition of Rugby World. Click here to see what’s in the current issue. In this incident it was interpreted that in lifting and completing the tackle, despite the angle of the hit and the manner in which the Argentine was safely reacquainted with the turf, Varndell was guilty. He earned himself a yellow card without dropping or driving anyone.Recent IRB directives ask that punishments pertaining to law 10.4 (j) – ‘Lifting a player from the ground and either dropping or driving that player’s head and/or upper body into the ground whilst the player’s feet are off the ground’ – should be heartily enforced.So far this season this has meant that young players like Toulouse’s Christopher Tolofua and Cardiff Blues’ Lloyd Williams have had the book thrown at them for their reckless tackling in the Heineken Cup. This is fair enough, but it’s hardly in keeping with the current trend.Conservatism means an Aviva referee can brandish yellow for fear of disobeying a directive, while a citing panel can get together and agree that no one has earned a spell in the cooler for introducing someone’s head to the dirt.The directive has created a monster. Not the kind of large, looming monster that has everyone in Europe clamouring for change. It’s the kind of tiny, insidious monster that could whisper in an official’s ear, convincing them that the next yellow should come out for something innocuous. By Alan DymockWITH CARDS flying as readily as they will on Valentine’s Day, the issue of officials and their interpretation of the ‘tip tackle’ is raising more than a few hackles.In a Premiership game at Worcester, Leicester’s Toby Flood was cited for upending Andy Goode. After a two-hour hearing five days later, Flood was cleared of trying to spear his opponent into the ground by virtue of a plea that a team-mate had joined in to drive Goode to the floor, just as Flood was falling.A flimsy excuse meant the England fly-half was rendered inculpable.Yet the outcome set a dangerous precedent, because Flood could have seriously injured a fellow professional.Within a couple of days of this, Wasps wing Tom Varndell had been sent to the sidelines by referee Andrew Small after a ‘tip’ on Bath and Pumas winger Horacio Agulla.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Mazanka Apartment / Makhno Studio

Mazanka is an apartment in a Kyiv skyscraper with a view of the Dnipro river, where ancient construction technologies were used. In the Ukrainian language, мазанка (mazanka) means a small village house built of wood, clay, and reeds. The name comes from the word мазати (mazaty) — to cover something with a layer of clay. Mazanka apartment is a dialogue of our architects with the past. And its result is a step towards the originality of modern Ukrainian design and Ukrainian culture as it is. The client of the project is a young woman who shares our views of a home as a place of strength. She chose our studio to fulfill her long-held dream — eco-housing with natural materials and modern technologies being harmoniously combined, and the design sophisticatedly emphasizing the uniqueness of the space. It was important for us not only to create an interior that will meet these requirements but also become near and dear to the customer.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinFirst off, we designed an open but thematically zoned space for the owner’s favorite home routine: yoga, dancing, cooking. Therefore we combined the kitchen, living room, and balcony but left a fairly clear thematic division due to different textures and materials. The kitchen is located in the central area of the apartment. Ribbed cabinets make the space rhythmic. The granite tabletop island balances the jug lamps that attract attention with their playful form variation. The lines of the kitchen are airy and soft.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Serhii KadulinThe living area is almost an art object. The cube is decorated with plaster repeating the surface of ancient clay huts. The walls are covered with a special clay solution to get the desired volume. The relief was created by the element itself: when drying, the material had cracked and formed unique patterns. Here, the main beholder of such a force of nature is the Ochi lamp created by Makhno. In general, all the lighting in the apartment, except for the technical one, was created by Makhno Studio. Above the dining area, there is a handmade vine lamp.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinThis craft was also popular in our culture, but now it took us several months to find a master who can create a work of such complexity. Above the kitchen island, there is a set of four jug lamps that were specifically created for this apartment. In the bedroom, there is a ceramic Makiivka lamp from the Inside. Out collection that topped the trendsetter list by ArchDaily at iSaloni 2019. The bedroom space is also open and connected to the bathroom. They are partitioned by translucent doors. The colors and textures of the living room endure in the sleeping area but perform differently. “I am in high spirits. My guests are especially fascinated by the clay “cave” as something unusual and impressive. As for me, it feels here like somewhere in the middle of wild untouched nature. I believe that the Ukrainian contemporary style will conquer even more hearts”, says Anastasia, the owner of the apartment.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinProject gallerySee allShow lessKOW House / Edouard BrunetSelected ProjectsBugambilias House / Taller Mexicano de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Kyiv, UkraineLocation to be used only as a reference.

Gas explosion leaves two dead, 25 injured

first_imgWW photo: Johnnie StevensNew York — A little more than a year after a gas explosion in East Harlem left eight people dead, scores injured and two buildings demolished, a gas explosion on Second Avenue in the East Village, another Manhattan neighborhood a few miles away from East Harlem, left two dead, 25 injured and four buildings collapsed.Four of the injured are still listed as “serious” according to a WNYC broadcast on March 30.While the National Transportation Safety Board has yet to issue a final determination on the East Harlem explosion, the NTSB’s preliminary findings indicate leaks from gas mains over 120 years old were responsible.Con Edison has admitted that it found an illegal installation of gas lines servicing the renovated apartments at 121 Second Avenue. The company knew that the gas going into that building was only supposed to be enough to supply the sushi restaurant on the ground floor.What has come out about the latest explosion is a bit more complicated than aging gas mains and a careless supplier.It involves a landlord who kept her tenants supplied with gas even after Con Edison shut it off; a utility which relies on private contractors to do critical safety inspections that Con Ed used to do; a general contractor who is facing charges of bribing Department of Building inspectors; and a city charged with supervising construction to ensure the safety of its residents but which is really more concerned with increasing real estate values.Below the surfaceMany areas of New York City, especially in lower Manhattan, like the East Village (which is conveniently close to Wall Street), are old, dilapidated and subject to intense gentrification. The building which exploded was reported to be more than 100 years old. The landlord, who renovated the building’s apartments last summer, seemingly wanted to do the job on the cheap.Speculation in the coffee shops and buses running in the East Village is that the empty lots will be worth more than when they had buildings on them. Condos in a new building a few blocks away started at $1 million.Posts and comments on Facebook talk about the uncapping of an outlet in another Manhattan neighborhood in order to put in a new light and finding gas still flowing in the outlet even though the building was converted from gas light to electricity 80 years ago.In 2004, a woman and her dog were electrocuted by stray voltage from a utility access cover for which Con Edison was responsible. In 2006, the utility admitted that it had found 1,214 electrically charged covers in the past year. (New York Times, March 4, 2006) Two workers in the East Village were seriously burned by a charged cover last year. (Facebook comment) People walking their dogs in the East Village avoid utility access covers, even during warm, dry summer months.Parts of Manhattan look glitzy and spiffy. Underneath this look, however, is an old, crumbling infrastructure that is patched but not truly repaired.Deirdre Sinnott, who lives in the East Village, told Workers World: “This was a very scary incident. If it occurred later in the day, many more people might have died. It should be thoroughly investigated, preferably by the federal government, and neighborhood residents should be fully involved.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Joe Biden leads by over nine points in aggregate national polling data, but Democrats are cautiously optimistic after 2016. Hillary Clinton enjoyed similarly large leads but lost the race to Donald Trump with key defeats in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. One major difference between the two presidential races is the candidates. Trump is still part of the equation, but he is now the sitting president. There is no longer the intrigue of unknown possibilities for some voters, as they have seen what he has done in three and a half years said Dr. James Riddlesperger, a political science professor. Joe Biden is also viewed more favorably by voters than Clinton was.“In 2016 we had the two least popular candidates in United States history,” Riddlesperger said. “It’s not that way this year, most voters tend to see a relatively big contrast between the personality and character of President Trump and the personality and character of Joe Biden.”This contrast has also decreased the number of undecided voters in the electorate, which played a big role in 2016. Riddlesperger said about 15% were undecided in 2016, a lot of whom broke towards Trump, compared to only about 7% this year. That means the polling should be a little bit more accurate this year.Riddlesperger also predicted a rise in voter turnout. “I think that voting turnout is going to be much more like what it was in 2008. There are even some people thinking it’s going to be a little bit greater than that because mail-in voting is more accessible now than it was, and people seem to be more motivated to vote in general,” said Riddlesperger. The increased reliance on mail-in voting has also led to calls from President Trump that voter fraud will be extremely common this year and the election will be “rigged.”Riddlesperger said there is no evidence that mail-in voting increases voter fraud. He did add that it is hard to estimate whether there would be fraud because it’s impossible to be in someone’s home with them as they fill out their ballot. “The specter of having somebody calling into question the results of the election is something that is particularly chilling in a democracy,” said Riddlesperger.

Deloitte receives ‘Best Workplace in Ireland’ Award for Seventh Year in…

first_imgWITH offices in Limerick and Cork employing over 200 staff in the region, Deloitte has been named one of the ‘Best Workplaces in Ireland’, according to a detailed assessment by the Great Place to Work Institute Ireland. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This is the seventh year in a row that the company has featured in the awards and in this year’s awards Deloitte also ranked in the top 10 but was also one of only three companies to achieve a special recognition award for receiving the accolade for seven years in a row. Pat Cullen, Managing Partner, Deloitte, said: “We are delighted that we have once again been recognised with this accolade. To receive the award for the seventh year in a row is something that we are immensely proud of and is proof of our commitment to maintaining our status as an employer of choice. We are the only professional services firm with this record. At Deloitte, the friendly and supportive working environment within our firm is something that we believe differentiates us from other companies – and is thanks to all our people throughout the entire firm.”The Best Workplaces in Ireland study sets out to identify and recognise the finest employers, and therefore the most satisfied workforces in Ireland and throughout the European Union. The Irish study is the largest annual labour force survey undertaken in this country. This year over 100 Irish companies were surveyed with a total workforce of more than 90,000.It’s the views of the employees that count when deciding if a company will make the Irish ‘50 Best Workplaces’ list. A random selection of employees in each participating organisation complete a confidential questionnaire, rating their employers on almost 60 elements covering communication, training & development, pride, work life balance, diversity and teamwork in the workplace. The questionnaire aims to find out what the employees’ views are on the policies and practices that are in place in their organisation. Surveys are returned directly to the Great Place to Work® Institute by each individual employee, therefore ensuring confidentiality – and honesty!

Mayor’s driver will earn more than ‘underpaid’ councillors

Emailcenter_img Limerick on Covid watch list Car photo created by freepik – www.freepik.comTHE personal driver for Limerick’s directly elected Mayor will be paid more than local councillors, according to a local Fine Gael representative who believes that councillors are underpaid and overstretched.Northside city councillor Olivia O’Sullivan, who is self-employed and a mother of two young children, won a seat on Limerick’s joint City and County Council after contesting her first-ever election last May.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The office of the directly elected mayor is expected to cost €313,916, including the mayor’s salary of around €129, 854 plus €16,000 expenses; an advisor and programme officer both earning €66,741; and a personal driver who will earn €34,580.The Advisory Group that will set the timetable for the establishment of the new mayoral role met councillors for the first time at City Hall on Monday when it was suggested that the mayoral election could take place sometime in 2021.One of the new mayor’s most important powers would be to draft the Council’s annual budget, which is currently the responsibility of a local authority’s chief executive.When asked if the salary was too high, Advisory Group chairman Tim O’Connor said it would be terrific value as long as “the right mayor doing the right job” was elected.The office of the new mayor would be relatively small, and the potential would be to build on the success of what Limerick has already achieved over the last several years, Mr O’Connor added.Current Mayor Michael Sheahan, who was elected by his fellow councillors, insisted that funding must be forthcoming from central government for the new mayor’s office.In tandem with last May’s local and European elections, the Limerick electorate voted for the establishment of the new mayoral position in a plebiscite, while voters in Cork and Waterford voted against the proposal.Minister of State for Local Government and Electoral Reform John Paul Phelan told councillors the role of the directly elected mayor was “a chance for Limerick to lead the way in local government reform”.Cllr Olivia O’Sullivan, Fine Gael. Photo: Cian ReinhardtSpeaking after the meeting, Cllr O’Sullivan said she could understand the amount of the new mayor’s proposed annual salary, because government “want to get serious people for a serious role”.However, when asked if a personal driver costing nearly €35,000 was essential to the role, she replied that while she was not going to make any presumptions about any supporting roles to the mayor, she added, “certainly the driver will be paid much better than councillors, but lets hope that will be addressed”.“The salary for a councillor is €17,100, and obviously there are expenses, but it’s less than the minimum wage. It’s a very overstretched role and, in my opinion, it is underpaid. I’m new to it, I’m only six months in it, but there is a big commitment on a weekly basis.“I’m self-employed and I don’t know how you could do this job and be answerable to an employer on a daily basis, because the amount of meetings and commitments; just to fulfil the role is very difficult.”“It is very underpaid, it’s less than the minimum wage. Although it’s said to be a part-time role, the expectation of people is certainly that it is not part-time. You do have to manage it along with another job because you don’t get paid enough for it to be full-time.”“In my case, I have got a young family and that’s my choice to go into it, but I certainly couldn’t be in a full-time job answerable to an employer and do this, not to mind going home to a family and the commitments there. So, it is definitely very over-stretched and underpaid,” she added.

EDC seeks to replace funding

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration On the heels of its relocation to downtown Troy, the Pike County Chamber of Commerce had notified the Pike County Economic Development Corporation that it will no longer contribute a portion of its membership dues to the Pike County EDC.EDC President Marsha Gaylard attended the work session of the Troy City Council Tuesday to discuss the recent change in funding from the Pike County Chamber of Commerce to the EDC.“The Pike County Economic Development Corporation is the local organization responsible for working to assist and support our existing industries and commercial businesses, as well as recruit new businesses to help us grow Pike County,” Gaylard said. “A portion of the Chamber membership dues has always been contributed to the Pike County EDC to help fund our efforts to grow Pike County. Chamber of Commerce dues have always been used for both community development and economic development, even before the EDC was spun off from the Chamber back in 2002.” EDC seeks to replace funding That loss of annual revenue is now making it necessary for the EDC to solicit funding partners from the community, Gaylard said.Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford said now is not a good time for the EDC to have to seek funding from businesses in Pike County.Lunsford said economic development was originally a part of the Chamber organization but, when the one organization became two, the Chamber dues were divided on a percentage basis so the organizations would not compete for funding.“Now that the Chamber is no longer supporting economic development, the EDC will have to request funding from elsewhere to do its job,” Lunsford said. “This will certainly impact the operation of the Pike County EDC.” Published 9:31 pm Tuesday, March 8, 2011 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Following the work session, the Troy City Council recognized a large group of special guests at its regular 5 p.m. meeting.There was a standing room only gathering that included representatives from the Troy Fire Department, CARE Ambulance Service, Troy Regional Medical Center and the honored guests, Destany Gobin and Juanita Wilkes.Troy Fire Chief Thomas Outlaw recognized Gobin for lifesaving heroism on Valentine’s night 2011.Outlaw said that he was at home when the call came in to the TFD of an episode at Santa Fe steakhouse.“A crew of four was dispatched and arrived four minutes after the call,” Outlaw said. “When our crew arrived the victim was being administered CPR by a young waitress at the restaurant. CARE Ambulance arrived about a minute and a half after our crew got there. The victim was shocked and shocked again to get her heart back in rhythm. She was then transported to Troy Regional Medical Center.”Outlaw praised the EMTs with CARE and the staff at TRMC and said there are no words to say how important the hospital is to the City of Troy.However, he had special praise for the Troy University athletic training student who began CPR and very possibly saved the life of Pike County resident Juanita Wilkes.Gobin is from Mobile where her family owns and operates an ambulance service. She is certified in CPR.“I’d only done CPR on a dummy but I heard the manager say that someone was not breathing and no one was doing anything and I thought that I had to do what I could,Gobin said.Wilkes addressed the crowd and told them the Bible say that “Greater love hath no man than, this, that he lay down his life for others.”“You may not be on foreign soil but every day you give life to others,” she told the gathering of community servants. “Destany gave me life and now I have a journey that I will take every day with Christ holding my hand. How do I say thank you for life?”The Council then worked from a short agenda that included a look at the 2010 census.“We knew that the population of Troy was increasing because of the installation of electric meters but we were very pleased to learn that the population of the City of Troy has increased by 29 percent over the past 10 years,” Lunsford said. “In 2000, the population of Troy was 13,935. According to the 2010 census, the population is now 18,033. We are very proud of that.”The council also declared a list of property surplus so that it may be dispersed and voted to purchase a new trencher for the utilities department. The council also approved an agreement with the Troy Umpires Association to umpire softball and baseball games at the Sportsplex.Dan Smith, parks and recreation director, told the council that the Miracle Field is scheduled for completion by May 1 with opening ceremonies planned for May 20. Email the author Next UpGaylard said the separation of Economic Development from the Chamber was done in order for the EDC to be able to focus solely on growing Pike County through economic development and allow the Chamber to concentrate on community development issues.“That way, the EDC and Chamber would not be in competition with each other,” she said.At that time, the membership dues were divided between the Chamber and the EDC, on a percentage basis with the Chamber receiving about $40,000 of the $65,000 annual dues and the EDC receiving about $25,000.

The impact of predation by marine mammals on Patagonian toothfish longline fisheries

first_imgPredatory interaction of marine mammals with longline fisheries is observed globally, leading to partial or complete loss of the catch and in some parts of the world to considerable financial loss. Depredation can also create additional unrecorded fishing mortality of a stock and has the potential to introduce bias to stock assessments. Here we aim to characterise depredation in the Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) fishery around South Georgia focusing on the spatio-temporal component of these interactions. Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella), sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), and orcas (Orcinus orca) frequently feed on fish hooked on longlines around South Georgia. A third of longlines encounter sperm whales, but loss of catch due to sperm whales is insignificant when compared to that due to orcas, which interact with only 5% of longlines but can take more than half of the catch in some cases. Orca depredation around South Georgia is spatially limited and focused in areas of putative migration routes, and the impact is compounded as a result of the fishery also concentrating in those areas at those times. Understanding the seasonal behaviour of orcas and the spatial and temporal distribution of “depredation hot spots” can reduce marine mammal interactions, will improve assessment and management of the stock and contribute to increased operational efficiency of the fishery. Such information is valuable in the effort to resolve the human-mammal conflict for resources.last_img read more

Hundreds of agents go back to ZPG

first_imgHome » News » Hundreds of agents go back to ZPG previous nextProptechHundreds of agents go back to ZPGThe Negotiator3rd August 20170522 Views ZPG, owner of Zoopla and PrimeLocation, reports that over 800 estate agency branches have left Onthemarket (OTM) to re-join ZPG over the past two years.The latest return came from the famous London agent Cluttons, which re-joined Zoopla just weeks after it went into pre-pack administration in May, a legal move that enables a struggling UK business to be bought before going into administration.As part of the overhaul of the business, the 250-year-old company and its six branches in the UK re-joined Zoopla in May and, Zoopla says, gained 100 leads across its office network during the first 24 hours.Ian Odam, Director of Jeanes Holland Burnell, a multi-branch agency based in Somerset, said, “In January 2015 we joined Onthemarket. After two years of supporting the OTM project, we felt unable to sustain our membership with them any longer as we believed we were missing out by not listing our stock with ZPG. In December 2016, we re-listed with ZPG and such has been the response that our offices received as many leads in the first few weeks as we received in the previous 6 months with Onthemarket and is on par with the number we receive from Rightmove.”Mark Goddard, Managing Director of ZPG Property Services said, “Agents are increasingly feeling the pain of spending marketing budgets inefficiently and missing out on the enormous exposure we provide. We welcome back any agent who wishes to enjoy the benefits that most of their competitors do. Our agent partners benefit from the most cost-effective brand exposure and lead generation as well as a wide range of tools that allow them to generate additional revenues.”Prime Location Zoopla ZPG August 3, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Technician who filled propane tank prior to LEAP explosion fined, suspended

first_imgFARMINGTON – A propane and natural gas technician has been fined $1,300 and had his license suspended for 15 days for reportedly failing to perform a leak check on a propane tank three days prior to the Sept. 16, 2019 explosion at the Life Enrichment Advancing People Inc. office building that killed one firefighter and badly injured several other people.The technician, George Barker, signed a consent agreement with the Maine Fuel Board, part of the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation, and Attorney General’s Office. In that agreement, which was finalized on June 9, Barker admitted to not checking the piping system for leakage after refilling the propane tank on Sept. 13, 2019.According to the state Fire Marshal’s Office investigators The building exploded three days later as a Farmington Fire Rescue team and LEAP maintenance supervisor Larry Lord were investigating a report of a gas smell. One firefighter, Capt. Michael Bell, 68, was killed in the explosion and Lord and several firefighters were injured.The consent agreement indicates that Barker was employed by CN Brown Energy, who dispatched the technician to 313 Farmington Falls Road on the morning of Sept. 13 after receiving a call regarding an empty tank. According to attorneys representing Lord, LEAP employees reporting to work on the evening of Sept. 12 discovered that the building had no hot water. Lord and another employee learned of the interruption the next morning and checked the building’s propane tank, with Lord then calling CN Brown.According to the consent agreement signed by Barker and representatives of the Maine Fuel Board and AG’s Office, Barker refilled the tank but did not check the piping system for leaks. That is an alleged violation of a Maine Fuel Board rule adopted from the 2012 National Fuel Gas Code of the National Fire Protection Association, which reads:Leak Check. Immediately after the gas is turned on into a new system or a into a system that has been initially restored after an interruption of service, the piping system shall be checked for leakage. Where leakage is indicated, the gas supply shall be shut off until the necessary repairs have been made.According to the Fire Marshal’s Office, the line leading from the tank to the building was severed by the auger head of a bollard – a post used to direct traffic – on Sept. 10. Investigators previously indicated that bollard, one of four installed by Techno Metal Posts of Manchester to protect an external air conditioning unit, was drilled into the paved parking lot and severed the line.The consent agreement indicates that Barker acknowledged that were the matter to proceed to an administrative hearing before the Maine Fuel Board, the evidence presented could be sufficient to support a finding of a violation of the rule. The agreement includes a civil penalty of $1,300, a reprimand for not performing a leak check and a 15-day suspension of license.Previous state and federal action relating to the explosion include fines levied against LEAP and Techno Metal Post by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for alleged violations of the general safety and health provisions of the agency’s regulations. Inspections opened by OSHA on CN Brown and another company, Cornerstone Plumbing and Heating, were both closed without any citations. Maine Department of Labor also issued a preliminary report on the explosion as it relates to the town of Farmington, including violations of equipment and training standards.Attorneys representing Larry Lord have indicated that they intend to file a civil suit that could involve Maine Techno Post and CN Brown. Daniel Kagan and Steven Silin, both of the firm Berman & Simmons, indicated Wednesday that they are in the process of compiling the long-term consequences of the explosion for Lord.Silin said that Lord, who suffered burns over 85 percent of his body, was dependent upon his wife and home care and that he remained in contact with doctors at Mass General Hospital. Complications relating to his injuries necessitated surgical procedures, Silin said, calling both Lord and his wife, “extraordinary people.”The explosion occurred because Techno Metal Post had not followed laws relating to excavations around utility lines, Silin said, while the technician employed by CN Brown did not perform the required check that would have discovered the leak.“They’re both clearly factors,” Kagan said.Responding to a question from a reporter regarding the fine and suspension included within the consent agreement signed by Barker, Silin noted that the Maine Fuel Board was addressing their own regulations and requirements, not invoking punishment in relation to the explosion itself.Barker was a former firefighter, Silin said. “I know Mr. Barker felt terrible about what happened,” he said Wednesday.Silin and Kagan represent Lord, while the family of Bell and firefighters injured in the explosion are being represented by Walter McKee of McKee Law. Silin said that he anticipated that a civil suit filed in relation to the incident would be filed jointly by all of the parties.last_img read more

Manure management

first_imgThe term “small farm” brings to mind anything from a couple of horses on several acres to a family dairy or feedlot. Despite the varying definitions, all small farms share the common challenge to properly manage a common problem – manure. Specialists from across the United States have scheduled an information session to help small farmers manage manure problems. The hour-long seminar will cover challenges for small farmers, environmental issues and how to develop a nutrient management plan. The national Webcast session is set for Friday, June 20 beginning at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The session will be led by University of Nebraska Extension engineer Chris Henry, North Carolina State University waste management extension specialist Mark Rice, University of New Jersey animal scientist Michael Westendorf and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service specialist Fred Kelly.The seminar is hosted by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental (LPE) Learning Center, part of eXtension, an educational partnership of land-grant colleges across the nation.The Webcast can be accessed at http://connect.extension.iastate.edu/lpelc/ on June 20. The session will officially begin at 2:30 p.m. EDT, but participants can log on as early as 2:15 p.m. EDT.For more information about small farm environmental issues, see the national eXtension Web site at http://www.extension.org/pages/Small_Farm_Environmental_Issues_Articles.last_img read more

Program makes it easier for lawyers to evaluate judges

first_img March 15, 2001 Regular News Program makes it easier for lawyers to evaluate judges Program makes it easier for lawyers to evaluate judges The Florida Bar’s Judicial Evaluation Committee has approved a significant expansion of its circuit judge evaluation by allowing attorneys to directly receive and return evaluation forms. “We’ve been calling it the attorney participation initiative,” said JEC Chair Jennifer Coberly. “The impetus is to have the program be effective in its goal and to provide the judiciary with feedback. It’s important for reasons of judicial independence. “People want to feel there’s a meaningful evaluation system in place. We’ve tried to increase the participation as much as possible.” The circuit judge evaluation program began just over three years ago. Under the program, when judges send out a final order in a case to the lawyers, they can include an evaluation form. The lawyers can fill out the form, make comments and return it to The Florida Bar. When a sufficient number of forms for an individual judge have been accumulated, the forms are mailed to the judge for review. The judge, at his or her option, can review the forms with the chief circuit judge, but the contents are otherwise confidential. In the new program, Coberly said, lawyers can get the form on their own, fill it out, and return it to the Bar. “When there’s a final order of any kind, we would like the lawyers to directly access the evaluation form and fill it out,” she said. Coberly said the committee embarked on the new program because it wants to boost participation in the evaluation process. “The judges [who use the evaluation process] are happy with it and the attorneys [who use the process] are happy with it,” she said. “The problem is getting enough participation. “A lot of attorneys don’t know this program is available. We want to give them the opportunity.” To get a form, go to the Bar’s website at www.FLABAR.org, and click on Organization. Under the Committees listing, choose Standing, and then select the Judicial Evaluation Committee. There are links in the text to both the trial and appellate judicial evaluation forms, as well as instructions for filling out the forms. (Use your browser’s print command to print out the form.) Those without Internet access can obtain the forms from Doris Maffei, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee 32399, or by calling Maffei at 850/561-5670. Completed forms should be placed in an unmarked envelope (Maffei noted that some lawyers have enclosed the forms in envelopes with their firms’ addresses). The envelope should state the judge’s name and his or her circuit or county and be addressed as follows: c/o Judicial Evaluation Committee, P.O. Box 11067, Tallahassee 32302-3067. (See illustration) Coberly said lawyers should also use care in filling out the form so that they do not include anything that identifies them or the case. Forms are held until several are collected and then forwarded to the judge, which further helps guarantee anonymity for participating attorneys. “We really want this to work and be an effective way to let judges know how they’re doing,” Coberly said.last_img read more

Biden is closing the gap on Trump in Georgia.

first_imgIn Fulton County, a Democratic stronghold and home to most of Atlanta, Mr. Biden narrowed the margin by more than 18,000 votes between 5 p.m. and midnight as the work of processing and tabulating the votes continued. In DeKalb County, also part of the metropolitan region, Mr. Biden narrowed it by an additional 5,000. The next update from Georgia’s secretary of state is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday.Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, said that as of 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, about 90,735 ballots still needed to be counted. More than a third of them were in Fulton and DeKalb counties. ATLANTA — The presidential race in Georgia appeared headed for a photo finish as former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. steadily gained ground on President Trump. The victor will be awarded 16 electoral votes.Mr. Biden began Wednesday morning approximately 100,000 votes behind Mr. Trump, but as county elections workers around the state continued the laborious tabulation of absentee ballots into Thursday morning, Mr. Trump’s lead narrowed to 23,000 votes, or 0.5 percent. Under Georgia election law, a candidate may request a recount if the margin is 0.5 or less.- Advertisement – Republicans in Georgia were nervously assessing the vote count and promised to file lawsuits in a dozen or more counties aimed at knocking off votes here and there. The first case, filed in Savannah on Wednesday, was an effort to chisel away 53 ballots that Georgia Republicans said had arrived too late to be counted. If the trajectory of Mr. Biden’s gains continued, it appeared he could overtake Mr. Trump in Georgia by the final tally on Thursday. The question was whether additional absentee votes from rural and more Republican areas would offset enough of Mr. Biden’s gains to preserve Mr. Trump’s lead.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Zoom Adds New Security Enhancements to Help Prevent Disruptions, Trolls in Virtual Meetings

first_imgIn addition to the new enhancement, Zoom now allows meeting participants to report a disruptive user by clicking the top-left Security badge. This is in line with how hosts and co-hosts have the ability to report disruptive users and trolls from the Security icon. Moreover, account owners and admins can enable reporting capabilities for non-hosts.Zoom has enabled both the Suspend Participant Activities feature as well as the ability for meeting participants to report a disruptive user on its desktop clients for macOS, PC, Linux, and mobile apps. The features will also reach its Web client and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) later this year.Zoom has also brought its At-Risk Meeting Notifier that scans public social media posts and other websites to look for publicly shared Zoom Meeting links. It automatically alerts the account owner by email on detecting a meeting that appears to be at high risk of being disrupted. Meeting hosts will also receive advice on steps that could include deleting the vulnerable meeting and creating a new one with a fresh meeting ID, enabling enhanced security settings, and using solutions like Zoom Video Webinars or OnZoom.- Advertisement – Zoom has added new security features to help prevent disruptions during virtual meetings and allow users to remove and report disruptive participants. The video conferencing app is also bringing a tool called At-Risk Meeting Notifier that helps alert hosts about the meetings that are at high risk of being disrupted and getting trolled by some individuals. Zoom meetings are still quite popular as people continue to work from home due to the pandemic. However, online disruptors and trolls are actively impacting virtual conversations and causing what is commonly known as Zoombombing.One of the latest security enhancements implemented by Zoom is the ability to let hosts and co-hosts temporarily pause their meeting and remove a disruptive participant. All you need to do is click on the Security icon and then select Suspend Participant Activities. This will stop all video, audio, in-meeting chat, annotation, screen sharing, and recording. It will also end Breakout Rooms.- Advertisement – Zoom already has over 300 million users, with a large number of people using it as their daily communication tool. This makes it necessary for the platform to help eradicate Zoombombing and allow users to safely communicate with their peers.Apart from limiting trolls, Zoom is also busy uplifting security by rolling out end-to-end encryption and working with regulators on addressing user privacy concerns.How are we staying sane during this Coronavirus lockdown? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. Zoom will also ask the host or co-host if they want to report a user from their meeting and share their details.

Dutch transport scheme returns 1.6% in April, aided by hedge portfolios

first_imgDuring the first quarter, when interest rates also decreased, the pension fund’s holdings of fixed income and interest swaps, delivered more than 3%, it said.Equity (26.7%), property (2.5%) and infrastructure (0.9%) returned 0.71%, 0.67% and 2% respectively during the first three months.Vervoer noted that its funding at March-end would have been 109.3% without applying the three-month average, which has been the official discount rate during the past few years.The transport scheme manages the pensions of 624,000 participants in total. The €15.8bn Dutch transport pension fund, Vervoer, returned 1.6% in April, following a 6% yield during the first quarter of 2014. In the wake of a further drop in interest rates in April, the scheme’s 64.3% fixed income portfolio contributed 0.4 percentage points to the monthly result, the scheme said.Its hedge of the interest risk on its liabilities and currency added 1 percentage point and 0.2 percentage points to the April return.As the fall of interest rates caused an increase of liabilities, Vervoer’s coverage ratio dropped 0.4 percentage points to 112.3% in April.last_img read more

Container Shipping in the Arctic: Why (Not) Now?

first_imgA.P. Moller Maersk has always been an industry front runner when speaking about the exploration and adoption of innovative technologies and trends.Therefore, it is safe to say that the Danish shipping major has dared to go places where others haven’t, which is definitely the case with its latest test run through the Northern Sea Route.Venta Maersk Starts Historic Arctic VoyageEven though the trip is of exploratory nature, if a company like Maersk is exploring the commercial viability of the route, this could indicate a pick up in the route’s attractiveness for container shipping, as Arctic waters have so far been used mostly by tankers and, most recently, by passenger ships.Taking into account that container shipping is currently looking into the ways of boosting profitability and cutting costs especially for fuel, the lane would be very attractive as it shortens the duration of the trip from Northeast Europe to Asia, by around 24 percent, when compared to the Suez Canal.Hence, container shipping companies would be able to save time and money, assuming they had already invested in ice-class ships.Nevertheless, there are numerous constraints to consider, including the shipping lane’s availability and capacity.The melting of the ice in the Arctic Sea makes the Northern Sea Route, which connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, partly free of ice during the summer months. Even though the frozen ice sheet is absent, there will still be broken off ice sheets in various sizes in the Arctic Sea during the ice-free periods. Therefore, ships using the Northern Sea Route require ice breaker support, which might prove to be costly.Maersk’s ship will also be escorted by an ice-breaker through the route.However, various projections indicate that the ice-free periods are likely to increase in the upcoming years making the area longer available for commercial shipping. In the long-term, it could be something worth looking into for container shipping companies.Capacity-wise, the route can be no alternative to the Suez Canal, as it can accommodate ships of up to 4,500 TEU, while the Suez Canal can accommodate much larger vessels, including ultra large container vessels.As such, the industry agrees that for the time being the lane is more of a seasonal complement rather than a replacement to the Suez Canal.Commercial drivers aside, the environmental aspect of the route is very important to consider, due to the lack of available infrastructure in the area because of its remoteness to deal with a potential oil spill and shipping incidents.To that end, in April 2018, the International Maritime Organization’s Marine Environment Protection Committee agreed to move forward on consideration of a Arctic ban on heavy fuel oil.The meeting directed a sub-committee (PPR6) – which will meet in early 2019 – to develop a ban on heavy fuel oil use and carriage for use by ships in the Arctic, “on the basis of an assessment of the impacts” and “on an appropriate timescale”.In view of the above, Maersk said it would use ultra-low sulphur fuel throughout the voyage.“With this week’s news that the Arctic’s strongest sea ice has broken up twice this year, for the first time on record, using heavy fuel oil to power shipping in the Arctic not only increases the risk of oil spills, but also generates emissions of black carbon, which exacerbate the melting of both sea and glacier ice in the Arctic region. By taking the lead in the Arctic, Maersk could lead a vanguard of companies shipping commercial goods that move towards clean and renewable forms of propulsion for shipping worldwide,” Clean Arctic Alliance Lead Advisor Sian Prior said.Maersk’s ice-class ship Venta Maersk departed Vladivostok earlier today heading for the Northern Sea Route. Maersk said earlier that the ship’s trip would last for over a month. The ship is expected to pass the Bering Strait on or around September 1, 2018 and its planned arrival in Saint Petersburg is set for the end September.World Maritime News Staff; Image Courtesy: Illustration/ U.S. Geological Survey under public domain licenselast_img read more

Messi snogs stunning wife Antonela but leaves fans ‘disturbed’

first_imgBarcelona forward Lionel Messi has left fans feeling “disturbed” after he locked lips with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo for a music video. The 32-year-old and his partner showed their passion for one another in Puerto Rican musician Residente’s video showing 113 kisses from around the world during the coronavirus crisis. Messi’s Argentinian compatriot Paulo Dybala – fresh from recovering Covid-19 after testing positive four times – also enjoyed a steamy snog with his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini. And Hollywood actor Ben Affleck was another high-profile celebrity to feature as he and his new 007 girlfriend Ana de Armas went public with their love for each other. But it was Messi’s affection for his wife that left fans shocked, with supporters of the six-time Ballon d’Or winner not used to the Blaugrana ace showing his affection. As Messi and Roccuzzo share a kiss during the song titled ‘Antes Que El Mundo Se Acabe’ – which in English translates as ‘Before the World Ends’ – the lyrics go: “I know the future is uncertain but even if they close borders they can’t close the sea. We’ll soon get out.”Advertisement Loading… read also:‘Ronaldo was the best’ – Carlos, dismisses Messi, CR7 comparison Fans immediately took to social to comment on their uneasiness, as one said: “I feel like throwing up after that Messi kiss video.” Another commented: “Who filmed this Mateo or Thiago.

Welbeck sits out Arsenal trip

first_imgEngland forward Danny Welbeck will not travel with Arsenal to the Barclays Asia Trophy in Singapore as he continues to recover from the ankle problem which ruled him out of the end of last season, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The Chile forward enjoyed a stand-out first campaign in English football following his move from Barcelona after the World Cup, but there remains concerns over player burnout. Before the Copa America, Wenger indicated t he 26-year-old could well be eased back into action this season following his exploits in Santiago, so just like with Arsenal’s World Cup winning Germans, Sanchez may not be involved in the first few domestic matches. However, the Gunners boss revealed no sooner had the Chile forward chipped in the decisive spot-kick with a Panenka penalty, then his attentions turned back to club matters and ambitions for 2015-16. “He has shown again that he is scared of nothing. He took the ball and chipped the keeper. It was quite audacious, but I was of course over the moon to see him bring the trophy to a country that has waited for such a long time,” Wenger said to Arsenal Player. “It is an historic achievement and when you’re a football player, you want to do that, so I’m very happy for him.” The Arsenal manager added: “I texted him [after the final] and he texted me back. He was already focused on next season with Arsenal and wants to win everything with us. He was thrilled and very happy.” Wenger sai d on the club’s official website, www.arsenal.com: “Welbeck isn’t completely recovered from the problem he had. He is not back in full training, so he will stay behind.” Speaking last month, Welbeck indicated there was no serious issue, just needing more time to recover. He said: ”It was worse than we first thought it was, but it is just a natural healing period and usually I heal faster than others.” Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky, who along with captain Mikel Arteta has signed a contract extension, is also not part of the squad for Singapore because of what Wenger describes as a small injury picked up on international duty. Goalkeeper David Ospina, linked with a move away from the club following Cech’s arrival, has been given extra holiday following the Copa America, as has key man Alexis Sanchez, whose penalty in the shoot-out won the final for hosts Chile. While the likes of Calum Chambers, who has cut short his time off after the European Under-21s Championships, Chuba Akpom and 18-year-old American Gedion Zelalem will all hope to get some game time on the Asia tour, Carl Jenkinson, Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell were not included in the group and appear likely to be sent out on loan for next season. Arsenal play a Singapore XI on July 15, then are scheduled to face either Everton or Stoke. The Gunners return to England to host the Emirates Cup on July 25/26 ahead of the FA Community Shield against Chelsea at Wembley on August 2 and will open the new Barclays Premier League campaign with a televised home game against West Ham on Sunday, August 9. Sanchez is not expected back from holiday until August 3, so would not normally be involved in the Community Shield. Press Association The Gunners will take a 27-man squad to the Far East in the first leg of their pre-season preparations, with summer signing Petr Cech joining up with his new team-mates for the first time since a £10million switch from Chelsea. Welbeck, though, is to remain in London as he looks to shake off the knee problem which kept him out of the final few weeks of the season, missing both the FA Cup final win over Aston Villa and England’s June internationals. last_img read more

‘Most venues for 2022 Asian Games to be completed this year’ Says organiser

Stokes, Wood help England snatch win from South Africa

first_img(REUTERS)- Ben Stokes smashed a blistering century and Mark Wood bowled an excellent final over as England beat South Africa by two runs in the second one-day international in Southampton on Saturday for an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.After Stokes’s heroics with the bat had helped England score 330 for six in their 50 overs, South Africa needed 10 runs from the last 10 balls of their innings with five wickets remaining, but an excellent final over from Wood that cost just four runs sealed victory.One worry for England ahead of the looming Champions Trophy starting on Friday is that Stokes managed to bowl only three overs in the South African innings having injured his knee in the first ODI win, but he remained on the field.“Those are the sorts of games you really want to win,” England captain Eoin Morgan said at the post-match presentation at the Rose Bowl. “You learn a lot more. The game got away from us quite a lot. Woody was awesome.”The visitors won the toss and elected to field, reducing England to 80 for three in the 16th over when Joe Root (39) was run out at the non-strikers’ end.But Stokes (101 from 79 balls) put on 95 for the fourth wicket with Morgan (45) and 77 for the fifth with Jos Buttler (65 not out) before he became a maiden ODI wicket on debut for South African left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj.Opener Quinton de Kock (98 from 103 balls) led the South African reply before he was caught by wicketkeeper Buttler off Moeen Ali.Captain AB de Villiers pitched in with a fluent 52, but the innings looked to be faltering until Chris Morris (36 not out from 22 balls) joined David Miller (71 not out from 51 balls) in the 44th over.The pair added 62 in 39 balls for the sixth wicket and looked as though they had won the game when they needed seven off the final over bowled by Wood (0-48 in 10 overs).But the England seamer produced an excellent over of short-pitched slower balls and the pair could only manage four singles to see victory slip away.“I can’t be unhappy, we fought right to the end and probably had it in the bag for most of that last half hour,” De Villiers said.ENGLAND InningsJ.

Vucevic declares for draft

first_imgFreshman Curtis Washington sat patiently at Friday’s press conference in the Galen Center, waiting for junior forward Nikola Vucevic to announce if he would return for his senior season.“We would ask [Vucevic] and he would never tell us,” Washington said.Big shoes to fill · With Vucevic declaring for the NBA draft, USC will need to replace its leading scorer and rebounder from this season. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan Vucevic’s announcement that he will declare for the NBA draft and sign with an agent, forfeiting his final season of collegiate eligibility, means Washington’s minutes for next season will significantly increase.“Of course I always want to work hard, but it makes me work that much harder knowing that I will have a larger role,” Washington said. “It is going to be difficult to fill Nikola’s role, so we are going to have to work hard.”With Vucevic (34.9 minutes per game) and senior forward Alex Stepheson (32.9 minutes per game) departing, USC will rely heavily on an inexperienced frontcourt next season. The Trojans’ post rotation will include transfers James Blasczyk, DeWayne Dedmon and Aaron Fuller, in addition to Washington, who did not score last season.“Curtis is a lot like me when I was a freshman,” Vucevic said. “He is a young guy who works really hard every day. He is one of the guys who works the hardest on the team.”USC coach Kevin O’Neill said he plans to recruit one or possibly two new players.“We are not going to take anybody that cannot come and help immediately, because that is just wasting a scholarship,” O’Neill said. “If we can find another big, we would be interested, and if we found the right wing player, we might be interested in both, but we are not going to rush into taking somebody for the sake of it.”Only two of USC’s top seven scorers from last season, guards Jio Fontan and Maurice Jones, are expected to return next season.“When you lose a guy like [Vucevic], obviously it is going to be a blow to you,” O’Neill said. “It is our job with the guys coming in, and whoever else we end up signing in the late period, to make sure that we have a team that can be competitive in the Pac-10 and get into the postseason.”After deciding to declare for the NBA draft, Vucevic signed with agent Rade Filipovich of BDA Sports Management.“It was a tough decision,” Vucevic said. “I thought that if I came back we could have done a lot of good stuff, but at the same time, I wanted to take the next step in my life.”Had Vucevic not signed with an agent, he would have had until May 8 to withdraw his name and return to college for his senior season.“I feel like if you do something, you have to go into it 100 percent,” Vucevic said. “It is a lot easier when you have somebody who can take care of the scheduling part.”Vucevic said he plans to continue taking classes this semester while preparing for the NBA draft, and to take summer school so that he can eventually graduate.This past season, the 6-foot-10 Vucevic averaged 17.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game, and was named to the All-Pac-10 First Team. He had a double-double in his final eight regular season Pac-10 games.Vucevic was the leading scorer and rebounder for the Trojans, who lost to VCU in the first round of the NCAA tournament.“Nikola’s great advantage is that he is going to be able to guard [NBA power forwards and centers], which very few people can do,” O’Neill said.last_img read more

‘Louis Van Gaal is very strict, very hard to satisfy’, says Man U’s Morgan Schneiderlin

first_imgMorgan Schneiderlin has revealed what it is like to play for Louis van Gaal after having spent a few months playing under the Manchester United boss.The 25-year-old was signed from Southampton for £25 million in July and is currently on international duty with France. Schneiderlin explained that Van Gaal knew him as a player but needed to learn more about what he was like as a person following his arrival at Old Trafford. “Van Gaal knew me as a footballer but he wanted to understand my character and my personality better,” he told Le Parisien. “He set out his playing philosophy and told me about himself. “On the pitch, he wants me to repeat my performances with Southampton – that I play with the same aggression and that I win the ball back – but he’s very strict and he’s very hard to satisfy.”When asked about why he moved from Southampton, Schneiderlin said he could have spent much longer than seven years at the club.”I could have stayed,” he said. “The club offered me a new contract and I felt at home, but I needed to get out of my comfort zone.”I feel ready to face this type of challenge and I’m not putting myself under any unnecessary pressure.“Anyway, I’m living my dream. I couldn’t refuse Manchester United.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

Without Kobe Bryant, LA Lakers lose 95-90 to Phoenix & improve NBA lottery odds

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Unlike Bryant’s other absences, the Lakers did not expect this.“I don’t know what changed,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “It was good this morning. This afternoon, it didn’t feel good.”The Lakers (14-55) didn’t look good, either. They nearly set a franchise record for fewest points in a game, something the 2002-03 team still holds with a 70-point effort in Cleveland on Nov. 5, 2002. The Lakers also set a season-low with fewest points scored in the second quarter (10 points on 4-of-24 shooting). That might bring fanfare during the NBA draft lottery in New York City on May 17. The Lakers have a five-game cushion over the Phoenix Suns (19-50) for the NBA’s second-worst record, which gives the Lakers a 55.8 percent chance of keeping their top-3 protected pick and 19.9 percent odds at finishing No. 1. But Scott scoffed at such talk. “If you intentionally go out there and try to lose games, that type of karma is going to come back on you,” Scott said. “I’m going to coach to try to win these games and I hope our players come out and try to win.” The noise level reached fever pitch, and the reasons had everything to do with Kobe Bryant.This did not involve Bryant leading the Lakers to a win, making a shot or even playing. The fanfare centered on Bryant strolling to the Lakers’ bench before watching a mess unfold in the form of a 95-90 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Friday at Staples Center.That partly explains the sudden excitement among the 18,997 at Staples Center since the game offered little to cheer until the Lakers cut a 19-point deficit in the final moments. But Lakers forward Ryan Kelly missed two foul shots and was called for basket interference on the next possession. Before that, most of the attention centered on Bryant, who missed his sixth game in the previous 10 contests because of his sore right shoulder.center_img They may have tried. But the Lakers still went 31-of-86 from the field, including poor shooting nights from D’Angelo Russell (2-of-10), Jordan Clarkson (2-of-13) and Julius Randle (1-of-9), none of whom played in the fourth quarter.Lakers reserve guard Lou Williams was the lone player both to score in double digits (30) and shoot above 50 percent (10-of-17).But does Scott find it off-putting that the NBA awards teams with better chances to land a top pick because of poor records?“I could be critical about it with certain parts of it,” Scott said. “But obviously last year it worked out pretty good for us.”Then, the Lakers landed the No. 2 pick despite finishing with the league’s fourth-worst record. Hence, Scott sounded open toward becoming the team’s draft representative again along with Lakers spokesman John Black.“Just give me great talent and chemistry, we’ll win,” Scott said. “That’s what John and I did last year.” The Lakers could not say the same thing about their own roster against Phoenix. So, plenty of fans seemed more interested in Bryant, who has consistently returned only for road games and home contests against marquee players or opponents. But Scott offered Bryant some sympathy, arguing, “When he tells me he can’t go, I know he’s hurting.”“He has to think about himself more than anything and his future after basketball,” Scott said. “He doesn’t want to do damage to his shoulder so much that in 5-10 years from now he has to go get surgery again.”last_img read more

first_imgThere is a high probability that commercial drivers might soon take it upon themselves to halt for a day or more, transport activities that expose them to extortion by unscrupulous (corrupt, dishonest) law enforcement or government security officers.What might soon begin to snowball (increase, swell) brings back memories of a strike action that commercial drivers organized for a day in April of 2012, against acts of extortion by Police and Immigration officers assigned at various checkpoints along highways in the country who were extorting money from them.A trip made by the Daily Observer to Nimba last weekend confirmed that the Mount Barclay Checkpoint, the Careysburg Checkpoint, and the 15th Gate Checkpoints have resurfaced, and a new checkpoint has been erected along the highway, near the Gbarnga Police Station.Vehicles with plates bearing PC or BC or other plates freely cross without being checked and without having to pay money; all commercial vehicles, on the other hand, are parked and their drivers required to drop L$25 or more, to get beyond the check-point.At all checkpoints, the vehicle our reporter was on was parked along with other commercial vehicles that arrived ahead of theirs as well as those that followed; without fail, each commercial driver were asked to pay a toll.Although it has become customary that at any legal checkpoint commercial drivers pay money to police, the taxi-driver whose vehicle drove  our reporter to Ganta on the night of January 31, recalled that the same harassment that once sparked a strike, had come back to create problems for commuters.“These rogues have come again to be taking money from us, and this is what you passengers don’t know when we are charging you.  The gasoline price, the police, and immigration all share in the money we earn. That makes it necessary for us to hike the fare to what you people have to pay.” “You see now, no war or any confusion in the country, but many gates are on this road and any checkpoint we stop at, we have got to pay something,” the taxi-driver complained.The commercial driver said parking their vehicles is not meant to check for anything illegal; it is simply to get money from them.It would have been fair if all vehicles were parked and checked as is done to commercial drivers. Why should we be the only drivers suspected of bringing drugs or foreigners illegally entering the country?” he asked.Look at what happened when a Presidential-convoy-vehicle was caught with drugs as was reported a few months ago.  Was that a commercial vehicle?”Our reporter said on his way back early Monday morning from Ganta as rode in a private Jeep, all those checkpoints that were extorting money from those poor commercial drives, were quickly opened for their vehicle to go through.When contacted at the beginning of February, Police spokesperson Sam Collins could not confirm whether authorities had instructed that additional checkpoints besides the existing ones including Salala, Gbarnga Main gate and Ganta , be erected.Mr. Collins said he would contact the Chief of Operations to react to the issue.As a result of the 2012 strike action, government had stepped in and dissolved the numerous checkpoints along highways with specific reference to the Monrovia-Ganta Highway that vehicles regularly ply.The only checkpoints that remained were the original ones including the Salala checkpoint, Gbarnga, and Ganta Immigration checkpoint.With no information of security threat or other issue of concern, those dissolved checkpoints have reemerged and drivers are again beginning to complain about the harassment.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

VP Boakai Launches Measles, Polio and Deworming Campaign

first_imgVice President Joseph Boakai on Friday, May 8, launched the National Integrated Measles, Polio and Deworming Campaign, which is targeting over 600,000 children under five years old.During the launch at the Duport Road Health Center in Paynesville, the VP said “Today, as we exit the arena of the Ebola war, we are fast marshaling our troops to launch yet another battle in the realm of our national health care system.”VP Boakai was referring to the Ministry of Health report that there is a measles outbreak in the country and that it already had a total of 562 suspected cases in its database as of May 5.  Of the suspected cases, 37 tested positive. Out of the total number of suspected cases only 87 of the children were vaccinated. Sadly, seven deaths have been reported, said the VP.According to him, government’s initial response to the outbreak has been “proactive. Two rounds of intensified immunization were conducted in December 2014 and February 2015 to stamp out the measles outbreak in the country.” He admitted sadly that the turnouts to the immunization centers were very low, between 20 and 30 percent. He attributed the setback to widespread Ebola fear that had gripped the nation and the cloud of suspicion that was cast over the Ebola Trial Vaccines which had been launched at about the same time as the integrated measles vaccine campaign.”He emphasized that the vaccination, which runs from May 8 to 14, has no relationship to the Ebola trial vaccine. “They are totally different and the populations they target are not the same. The measles campaign being launched is to protect children below the age of five from measles and polio. Additionally, the worm medicine—Mebendazol–will be given along with the measles and polio vaccines to keep our citizenry strong and healthy, he explained.During the one-week campaign, the Ministry of Health intends to immunize 603,153 children between the ages of six to 59 months who will be given Measles vaccines.  Close to 700,000 between the ages of below one and 59 months will be given Oral Polio Vaccine, and 523,000 children between the ages of 12 and 59 months will receive the worm medicine, Mebendazole.After formally launching the campaign, VP Boakai gave the first two  drops of vaccine to the first infant below one month.Speaking earlier, the House’s Committee Chair on Health, Representative Johnson T. Chea, called on all parents and guardians to take the responsibility of bringing their children to be vaccinated.Rep. Chea said if a child takes the full dose of the polio vaccine, that child will be protected from the crippling childhood disease.Mr. Sheldon Yett, UNICEF Country Representative, said roughly “one quarter of children die in Liberia before their 5th birthday. They are dying from vaccine preventable diseases.”He disclosed that at least 10 percent of deaths among Liberian children under five is due to measles.Dr. Bernice Dahn, Chief Medical Officer, Republic of Liberia and Health Minister-designate, said immunization is one of the key components to restoring routine health care services in the country after Ebola.She said four years before Ebola, measles and other childhood diseases were not heard of in Liberia, noting that today’s Liberian medical students had not seen whooping cough, measles or neo-natal tetanus in any of the health facilities in Liberia.  “Ebola came, and our immunization coverage dropped. Before Ebola, we were immunizing about 10,000 children per month for measles and that reduced to 4,000 per month.” According to the nation’s Chief Medical Officer, this means that Liberian kids are in danger.She disclosed that the measles outbreak was presently in 10 of the nation’s 15 counties.“If our children didn’t die from Ebola, than they should not die from measles; they should not die from whooping cough; they should not die from neo-natal tetanus. (Protecting them through immunization) is something that we have demonstrated before and we can still do that,” she stated.Reinforcing the advice to parents that they should take their children for the routine immunization vaccines, she and Representative Chea followed VP Boakai’ in administering the vaccines to two of the children.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyanese fishermen rescued after boat wreck in Atlantic Ocean

first_imgFive fishermen from Corentyne, Berbice have been rescued and are now safe after the vessel in which they had been travelling encountered a storm and sank in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday evening. The fishermen were tossed into the ocean and remained in the water. Two were rescued on Sunday morning, while the other three were rescued on Monday.The men are: Rondell Vanderstoop, 27, and Nuris Dundas 18, two brothers of Epsom Village Corentyne; Andrew Beaton, 22, and Steve McBean 20, of the same village; and Rodwell Captain, 21, of Brighton Village.Reports are that the men left Nickerie, Suriname on Saturday for a 14-day fishing expedition, but by 21:00h the same evening, they were hit by the storm.According to reports, the rough waters caused the boat to split and then submerge. They were all tossed into the water, and initially kept contact by periodically calling on each other.Following the mishap, Beaton and Captain were picked up in the ocean by another fisherman, but it took almost two days before they found the other three.Mc Bean’s wife, Kerry Mayers, 19, said she was able to speak with her husband Steve McBean, 22, after he was rescued. She said initial reports were that the boat sank and two were rescued.She explained that she was told three crew members were missing, and that information did not change until Monday morning.“The boy said that the Captain called him outside, and when he went the boat was already filled with water, and a wave just come and the two of them grab lifejackets and then they get separated in the water, and eventually they get back together and jump on the ice box; and then they separate again, but they did not reach up with the others until today [Monday].”The men were eventually rescued at about 08:30h on Sunday. On Monday morning, the same boat returned to sea in search of the three missing men.Meanwhile, Leroy Vanderstoop said his 27-year-old brother Rondell was the captain of the fishing vessel.Vanderstoop had been going to sea for more than a decade, while his brother Nuris has been a fisherman for two years. It was the first year at sea for the other three. The rescued men all returned to Guyana on Monday afternoon. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho pays glowing tribute to ‘dear enemy’ Steven Gerrard

first_img Steven Gerrard and Jose Mourinho Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has offered a glowing tribute of ‘favourite enemy’ Steven Gerrard with the two set to go head to head for the last time in their careers on Sunday.The Liverpool captain will end a memorable 17 years as a professional at Anfield at the end of the season after agreeing to begin a new chapter at LA Galaxy in the MLS.Liverpool are set to honour the newly-crowned Premier League champions with a guard of honour at Stamford Bridge, but Mourinho admitted his focus will be on appreciating Gerrard’s career instead.“If they want to do that [form a guard of honour], obviously my players are going to accept that with respect,” said the Blues’ boss.“But speaking about Liverpool and speaking about honouring the champions, this is my time to honour a champion. It is my time to honour Steven Gerrard.“Steven Gerrard is for sure one of my favourite enemies – an enemy with all the good feeling I can express with that word in football.”Mourinho has enjoyed a hugely successful two spells in charge at Stamford Bridge, and he heralds the Reds’ captain as a significant factor in helping him learn and strive to be the best.“For sure, in England he is my dear enemy. For sure, he is the one that made me a better manager. To stop him or try and stop him has been very, very difficult,” said the 52-year-old.“It is with opponents like him that I am the manager that I am, because I learn with my players and I learn with my best opponents.”The ‘Special One’ also reiterated he tried to sign Gerrard on numerous occasions during his career, but admitted he doesn’t regret not being able to secure a deal for the Liverpool man.He said: “I tried to bring him to Chelsea, I tried to bring him to Inter [Milan], I tried to bring him to Real Madrid but he was always a dear enemy.“I want to honour him and I hope Stamford Bridge has the same feeling as I have, which is we need people like him as our opponents.” 1last_img read more

first_imgSenator O’DomhnaillDonegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has this afternoon, in the Seanad, called on the Minister for Transport to intensify efforts to gain a complete exemption from the new HGV Charge for Irish Registered Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), when entering the North of Ireland on or after the 1st of April 2014.Senator Ó Domhnaill said; “The Irish Government must leave no stone unturned in order to obtain an exemption from this levy. The levy, if implemented, would have a very serious impact for over 9,500 vehicles in Ireland but particularly on haulage operators in county Donegal as they have to travel through Northern Ireland along the A5 to access the South in many cases.“The new levy will impact all businesses that transport goods between both sides of the border; it will actually discourage companies in Donegal from expanding into and trading with the North. “I have now been assured by Minister of State Fergus O Dowd that the Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar has met with the UK Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport earlier today and he did press the issue at the meeting.”“I understand that clause 3 of the UK HGV Road Users Levy Act 2013 allows the Secretary of State to vary the extent of the scheme by order. While the UK have proposed to exclude approximately 7 miles of cross-border road between the Republic and Northern Ireland – this is simply not sufficient.“I have asked Minister O’ Dowd & Minister Varadkar to seek a full exemption for Irish Heavy Goods Vehicles. I believe that due to Ireland’s £20 million sterling contribution to the A5 and takin into account the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement an exemption should be granted.”“It is totally unreasonable and unjust that we contribute to the cost of a significant piece of infrastructure (A5) and then our hauliers are also expected to pay for it. “I have been assured today that following the meeting between Minister Varadkar and his British Counterpart that further consideration will now be given to exemptions by officials of their respective Departments.“A speedy outcome is however required as the charge is due to come into effect on April 01st next.” concluded Ó Domhnaill. SENATOR O DOMHNAILL RAISES NORTHERN HGV CHARGE IN SEANAD was last modified: February 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

At-risk people in Donegal urged to get flu vaccine

first_imgAs October marks the start of flu season, people in at-risk groups, cancer patients, their families and healthcare professionals are being urged to get the seasonal flu vaccine.The call comes as figures show vaccine uptake rates in people aged 65 and over increased in Ireland last year.The HSE’s flu vaccine lead Dr John Cuddihy, said “People need to remember that flu causes severe illness and death in Ireland every year. That is why those who are most vulnerable to the complications of flu need to get vaccinated. “The flu vaccine is the best defence against flu, yet every year many people in the at-risk groups fail to get vaccinated and so put themselves at risk of serious illness or even death.”The Irish Cancer Society is encouraging cancer patients across Donegal and their immediate household members to get vaccinated against the flu.The Society says that people who are undergoing or have undergone chemotherapy and other cancer treatments are at increased risk of contracting influenza because of their weakened immune systems.“The flu vaccine is a lifesaver for people with long-term health conditions, including cancer,” said Dr Chantal Migone, Specialist in Public Health Medicine at the NIO. “Healthy people who live with, or come into contact with, at-risk individuals like people with cancer can pass the virus onto them even before they develop the symptoms of flu,” added Dr Migone. It’s important that people who have cancer, as well as their household contacts get the flu vaccine every year.The HSE says that this year’s seasonal flu vaccine gives broader protection against flu than the vaccine used in previous years, because it protects against four of the common flu virus strains expected to be circulating this year based on advice from the World Health Organization. The flu vaccine used in previous seasons protected against three strains of the flu virus.The HSE’s website – www.immunisation.ie – provides details on the annual flu vaccination, as well as the pneumococcal vaccine for over 65s and people in medical at-risk groups and Whooping Cough vaccine for pregnant women, along with answers to any questions people may have about flu.

Half-time: Brentford 0 Ipswich 1

first_imgBrentford found themselves a goal down on the stroke of half-time after a high-tempo first 45 minutes at Griffin Park.After Ryan Fraser’s shot had clipped the inside of the post, the ball was worked back into the box and into the path of Kevin Bru, who tucked home.Minutes earlier, Bees keeper David Button bravely denied Freddie Sears as Ipswich ended the first half the stronger of the two sides.But Brentford had created the better chances overall, with Jota’s header brilliantly clawed away by Ipswich keeper Bartosz Bialkowski and Alan Judge’s free-kick curling just wide of the near post.Marinus Dijkhuizen’s side showed some neat touches in attack, with Judge and Andy Gogia lively, but they came up against a robust Ipswich defence.Hull City target Andre Gray is only among the Brentford substitutes for the Championship opener.As well as Gogia, Philipp Hofmann and Konstantin Kerschbaumer are also making their Bees debuts.Follow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebooklast_img read more

Are large corn and soybean price swings finished or just getting started?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Corn and soybean prices have traded in a wide range since last summer. July 2016 corn futures traded to near $4.70 in early July 2015, declined into harvest, and then bottomed at $3.51 following the release of the recent USDA Prospective Plantings report. July 2016 soybean futures traded near $10.31 in early July 2015, dropped sharply into harvest, and traded between about $8.60 and $9.30 from harvest through early April 2016.The price of both crops experienced a sharp rally this month. July 2016 soybean futures moved to a high of $10.43 on April 21 before finishing last week at $9.96. July 2016 corn futures experienced a more modest rally, trading to a high of $4.07 and finishing the week at about $3.75.A number of factors contributed to the rally that was led by soybeans. Excessive rainfall in parts of Argentina likely resulted in a measurable, but unknown, reduction in the size of the soybean crop due to flooding. Heat and dryness in Brazil has threatened the size of the corn crop in those areas that produced bumper crops the past two years. A weaker U.S. dollar also raised expectations for increased export demand for U.S. corn and soybeans. Large producer sales of corn and soybeans contributed to a weaker basis in many areas as futures prices increased. Forecasts for more favorable weather in parts of both Argentina and Brazil helped fuel the sharp reversal in prices.So where do prices go from here? In the short term, much will depend on how much corn and soybean production potential has been reduced in Brazil and Argentina. The magnitude of the reduction will not be known for a while, but some evidence of the market’s expectation about South American crop size will likely be revealed in the pace of U.S. export sales. For corn, weekly sales have been generally strong since early January and are currently well above the pace needed to reach the USDA’s projection of 1.65 billion bushels of exports for the year. Recognizing that some sales for delivery this marketing year may be cancelled or rolled into the next marketing year, sales may need to reach 1.725 billion bushels in order for exports to reach 1.65 billion bushels. New sales of only about 16 million bushels per week are needed during the last 20 weeks of the marketing year to reach that goal. New sales averaged 46 million bushels per week for the two weeks ended on April 14 and 38 million bushels per week since the beginning of the calendar year.For soybeans, export sales may need to reach about 1.75 billion bushels if actual exports by the end of the marketing year are to reach the USDA projection of 1.69 billion bushels. That goal would require weekly sales averaging two million bushels over the last 20 weeks of the marketing year. While new sales are typically very small from April forward, sales averaged 14.5 million bushels per week for the two weeks ended April 14. It appears likely that both corn and soybean exports will exceed the current USDA projection, with the magnitude of new sales over the next few weeks to give an indication of how big the margin might be.The pace of domestic consumption of corn and soybeans will also have some influence on prices through the end of the marketing year. Corn used to produce ethanol and co-products during the last half of the year will have to be about equal that of last year for use to reach the USDA projection of 5.25 billion bushels. The pace of ethanol production in March and early April suggests that the projection will be exceeded. Feed and residual use of corn during the last half of the year needs to be only 97% of last year’s use in order for the marketing year total to reach the USDA projection of 5.25 billion bushels.The current level of livestock and poultry inventories suggests that the projection could be exceeded as well. The soybean crush during the remainder of the marketing year will have to be about equal to that of a year ago to reach the USDA projection of 1.87 billion bushels. The pace of export sales of soybean meal, along with the monthly USDA soybean crush estimates, will provide some indication of the likelihood of the domestic soybean crush meeting that projection. The year-over-year decline in the crush in March does raise some concern that the projection may be a bit too high.While the magnitude of consumption and prospects for year-ending stocks will have some influence on corn and soybean prices, prospects for the size of the 2016 crops will be the main driver of prices for the next four months. In the near term, those expectations will be influenced by the pace of planting and early season crop conditions. Expectations will also be influenced by the USDA’s June 30 Acreage report indicating whether planted acreage differed from intentions.Crop size will ultimately depend on summer weather. We have previously made the case for an elevated risk of yields falling below trend value this year as summer weather is influenced by the fading El Niño episode. Even after the recent rally, new crop prices may still understate that risk. It will not be surprising to see periods of volatile prices, similar to that just experienced, continue through the summer. Now is the time for producers to establish targets for pricing a portion of the 2016 and 2017 crops.last_img read more

Yahoo! Launches Android Apps, Plus Web Apps for iPhone

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement In what can only be touted as “better late than never” news, Internet giant Yahoo! is today, at long last, launching its first ever applications designed for Android-based smartphones. There are now a trio of new apps available in the Android Market: a Yahoo! Mail app, Yahoo! Messenger app and a Yahoo! Search widget. Each of these applications have been built “from the ground up” for the Android platform, a company blog post proclaims, and they work on any Android phone running OS version 2.0 or higher. Alongside the launch of these new Android apps, the company is also announcing the arrival of revamped Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! News mobile Web apps, designed with iPhone and iPhone Touch users in mind. Yahoo’s Android AppsYahoo! says that the new Android applications have been optimized for three particular Android phones: the Motorola Droid, HTC Incredible and the Google Nexus One, however they will run on any Android device with OS 2.0 or higher. The Mail application functions as a standalone inbox for Yahoo Mail users, and features several integrations with the device’s software itself, including the ability to send emails from the native address book, upload photos as attachments directly from the camera or photo gallery and support for push notifications of new email messages. It also includes attachment viewing capabilities, emoticons, search by sender, recipient, subject and keywords, folder management and spam tools and multi-tasking support. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Apple#Google#mobile#news#Product Reviews#web Related Posts The app is available in 8 languages across more than 200 countries but is an opt-in experience only while in beta testing. To sign up, visit http://y.ahoo.it/mailbeta from your iPhone or iPod Touch’s Web browser.The Yahoo! News Web app has also been redesigned with a new layout, animated visual effects and touch-based navigation capabilities. You can learn more about all the launches here on YouTube. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … iPhone “Web Apps”The other new applications arriving today are not native iPhone applications, but rather Web apps supporting the latest standards-based technology, HTML 5. Yahoo! claims that its new Mail for the mobile Web is the “most advanced mobile web-app” it has ever created, as it makes use of new HTML 5 features like client-side databases and advanced caching capabilities which helps it provide offline access. This makes it seem more like a native application than mobile Web site to end users. The app also supports full search, message and attachment previews as well as attachment viewing. The new Messenger app, as you may expect, connects you to friends for real-time instant messaging. It, too, runs in the background and alerts you to new messages using push notifications. In select countries, the app will also allow you to send text messages to friends which appear as a part of your IM conversation. (SMS supported in Canada, Indonesia, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Philippines, Pakistan, Thailand, United States and Vietnam). The Android search widget is only available in the U.S. for now with localized versions launching at a later date. It sits on your Android’s home screen allowing you to either type in or speak your search query.

first_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENT Roelant Oltmans Published on COMMENTS Roelant Oltmanscenter_img × SHARE Hockey India today sacked national coach Roelant Oltmans after a string of unimpressive outings at the international level.High Performance Director David John will be in charge till a suitable replacement is found for a smooth transition of the the men’s team.The decision was taken during the three-day meeting of the Hockey India High Performance and Development Committee, which concluded today.Though the federation did not say it in as many words, it is apparent that the HI bosses are not impressed with the Dutchman. “Key decisions taken included Chief Coach Roelant Oltmans to step down,” Hockey India said in a release.“While Roelant Oltmans role as Chief Coach in improving the teams’ overall fitness and cohesiveness has been appreciated, the results are what matter and the performance of the team has not been consistent or up to the desired levels,” it read.The power-packed meeting to assess the way forward for Indian hockey was attended by over 24 members over the last three days.Harbinder Singh, chairman of the Hockey India Selection Committee, said, “The Committee was convened since we are collectively not satisfied with the Indian Men’s Hockey team’s performance in 2016 and 2017 and feels that wins in Asia can’t be a benchmark for success any more.”“We need to show results beyond intent in key international tournaments where the sporadic success over the last two years is more incidental than deliberate. To make results a reality, we need to make hard decisions for the greater good of the future of Hockey in India,” he said.This move comes before critical tournaments including the Asian Games & World Cup in 2018 and 2020 Olympic Games.

Cricket: Gautam Gambhir bats for India against the Pakistani media

first_imgWith Gambhir certainly winning the round against the Pakistani media, India would look to assert their dominance over the noisy neighbours.Read Also:Asia Cup 2018- India vs Pakistan Preview: Arch-rivals clash for group supremacy Advertisement AdvertisementImage Courtesy: India TodayGautam Gambhir was a crucial cog in the early decades for the Indian team, and while declining form has forced him to take a step back from the national setup, the opener is still a dominant presence in Indian cricket with his strong opinions.The former Delhi Daredevils skipper defended India in his usual demeanour during his time on ABP News, where he came across the Pakistan media who questioned the Men In Blue’s chances at the Asia Cup after a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of England.Gambhir meanwhile went on to state to the counterparts that winning against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh cannot be termed as an achievement with even India A capable of doing the same.The next statement that popped up for Gambhir was Pakistan’s triumph over India to win the Champions Trophy in 2017, the left-handed batsman went on to remind that the Champions Trophy is Pakistan’s only notable achievement in the recent past, while India have been consistent in the ICC tournaments as of late.Watch the highly entertaining video belowlast_img read more

Life goes on for Virat Kohli after Anil Kumble’s controversial exit

first_imgNormal business has resumed for Indian cricket after a tumultuous period. Shortly before the Champions Trophy got underway in England, murmurs of a rift between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble first appeared in the media. In the subsequent days and weeks, what unfolded was a messy sequence of events.There had been a total breakdown of communication between Kohli and Kumble. The players were far from happy with the coach’s headmasterly behaviour and there was absolutely no way the Cricket Advisory Committee, Committee of Administrators or the BCCI could have salvaged the situation. After what seemed like an eternity, Kumble stepped down as coach following a Champions Trophy final defeat to Pakistan. (Team India living it up in Sri Lanka: Pool splashes and fun dinners)About three weeks later, after much conjecture, Ravi Shastri, the former team director and the man who was overlooked at Kumble’s expense, was brought back to the fold. And life was all smiles and roses again.India returned from the West Indies and set sail for Sri Lanka, Shastri’s first appointment as the new coach. And in scenic Galle, the venue of India’s first Test against the hosts, Shastri made an immediate impact.AP PhotoAccording to reports, the coach wanted his wards to remember why they started playing cricket for the first time, forget everything else and just enjoy the game. The batsmen were encouraged to reach the ground well before game-time to warm themselves up.Shikhar Dhawan reaped the rewards, making 190 while Abhinav Mukund made his best in Tests in the second dig as India destroyed Sri Lanka by 304 runs. Besides, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli helped themselves to centuries too and Hardik Pandya smashed an aggressive fifty on debut. advertisementKumble’s exit had left the cricket community in India shocked. He had done remarkably well as coach and an extension till the 2019 World Cup was taken for granted. Yet, despite the success, he could not hit the strike the notes with his captain and the rest of the team. Shastri has a different method. He believes in motivating the players, superstars in this country.Hardik Pandya Twitter PhotoIncidentally, Kohli’s record-breaking run in Test cricket (double hundreds in four successive series) came with Kumble in the dressing-room. But an ordinary series against Australia ensued, when it is understood the differences between the two were at their peak. However, Kohli came back strongly in the Champions Trophy, made a fine hundred against West Indies and tuned up for the Sri Lanka tour with a glorious, unbeaten 103 in the Galle Test. Two years ago, that was where Kohli and his men started their ascent to the top of the Test rankings.Indian cricket touched new peaks under the Kohli-Kumble combination and the show will go on with Shastri at the helm. It was a typical Indian victory that unfolded at Galle – methodical, clinical and ruthless.However, the onus would be on the team to push hard for the 2019 World Cup and that is when Shasri and Kohli would be truly judged. However, for now, both men have their hands full and it will be a tough road ahead with key overseas tours coming up. Will they be up for the challenge?last_img read more

A survey of non-volatile memories: Ideal workloads for NAND, NOR, and F-RAM

first_imgIt is worth noting that engineers are migrating from parallel to serial interfaces for new system designs. Serial interfaces reduce pin count for both the memory and the SoC, shrinking the PCB for reduced cost and smaller form factors. Octal SPI, Quad SPI, SPI, and HyperBus now offer performance that rivals parallel interfaces, including up to 400 MBytes/sec for Octal SPI and HyperBus.Choosing the right memory ultimately helps ensure the success of your product. NAND Flash is ideal for mass storage workloads typically found in cloud computing and personal electronics. In contrast, NOR Flash and F-RAM are suitable for embedded systems and edge devices, which are often located in extreme and remote environments. In tandem with edge computing growth, advances in artificial intelligence are driving new capabilities which raise the bar on fail-safe operation, pushing manufacturers to deliver NOR Flash and F-RAM with safety and security features.Manish Garg is Senior Product Marketing Manager in the Memory Products Division at Cypress Semiconductor. Previously he has worked in different roles in Product Planning and Marketing at Altera (now Intel PSG) and Lattice Semiconductor. He holds a MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin and an MBA from Santa Clara University. Performance Characteristics IdealWorkload High-frequency data logging Target Applications ✓ Medium density✓ Virtually infinite endurance✓ Very high data retention (~100 yrs)✓ Very low energy F-RAM ✓ SSDs for data centers and consumer devices ✓ Medium density✓ High endurance✓ High data retention (~20 yrs) ✓ Industrial sensing✓ Portable medical NOR Flash center_img In the past, memory advancements were primarily measured by improvements in density, or cost-per-bit. But, as performance requirements for nonvolatile memories evolved, the criteria used to select them also changed. Applications such as factory automation, autonomous vehicles, portable medical devices, edge computing, and IoT sensors are demanding memories purpose-built for their unique requirements. Mass storage in data centers, computers, and consumer devices require the highest densities and lowest cost-per-bit, typically supported with NAND Flash. Embedded computers store boot code and transaction data, usually in NOR Flash. Data recorders, sensors and edge computers capturing rapidly changing data over long periods of time use specialized technologies, such as ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM). Matching memory to workload delivers optimum performance and reliability, and each of these solutions trades off certain characteristics to best fit the target application.For decades, NAND Flash has served consumer markets with ever-improving cost/gigabyte and adequate read/write performance. NAND-based solid state drives (SSDs) are also widely deployed in data centers and cloud servers. Higher densities have been achieved through process improvements and geometry shrinks, but this comes with trade-offs. In the very small NAND Flash memory cells, each program/erase (P/E) cycle stresses the cell, which translates to lower endurance, even with overprovisioning and wear-leveling. Data retention is also relatively low—approximately 10 years—owing to the smaller geometries.In contrast to NAND, NOR Flash has been optimized for reliability and ease-of-use. NOR Flash uses a relatively large memory cell which provides high endurance and long data retention. Combined with a byte-addressable architecture, NOR Flash is ideal for boot code—including execute-in-place systems—and transaction data. In response to the increased focus on fail-safe operation, the latest products offer functional safety and secure boot mechanisms as well. NOR Flash also supports very fast read performance which enables instant-on displays for automotive instrument clusters and other applications. However, this high reliability and improved performance comes with a trade-off, as NOR Flash densities are lower than NAND Flash (see NOR Flash for Automotive and Functional Safety).F-RAM is ideal for devices that continuously capture data over long periods of time (see Ultra Low Energy F-RAM). Unlike NAND and NOR memories which rely on stored charge to represent binary data, the F-RAM memory cell switches polarity within a crystal lattice made of a thin ferroelectric film of lead zirconate titanate, commonly referred to as PZT. The switching requires extremely low energy, enabling very long battery life, and it doesn’t wear out, delivering virtually infinite endurance (see Designing with Low Power F-RAM). There is also no charge leakage, so data retention is very high—approximately 100 years. A common misconception is that F-RAM can be disturbed by magnetic field. This is not true. While excellent for data logging, the F-RAM densities generally do not meet the needs of code and mass storage.Table 1: Performance characteristics, ideal workloads, and target applications (Source: Cypress) ✓ Automotive systems✓ Industry 4.0✓ Industrial IoT Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must Register or Login to post a comment.

Even the normally restrained Sachin Tendulkar questioned the approach.The Indian team management knows that only too well but with four group matches left, the only option they have right now is to alter Dhoni’s batting position, possibly giving a few more deliveries to Jadhav, who can be innovative in his shot selection.Hardik Pandya is being used as a floater but the West Indies match showed that if he doesn’t get support from the other end, there is too much pressure on him to hit every delivery for a six.Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri till now have not been too keen to use Rishabh Pant’s firepower.

Appeal dismissed in challenge to Alberta gaystraight alliance law

first_imgThe Canadian Press CALGARY — Opponents of Alberta’s law allowing gay-straight alliances in schools have been dealt another legal setback.Religious schools, public interest groups and parents filed a lawsuit last year seeking to have the legislation put on hold until there’s a ruling on its constitutionality.The coalition led by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms was denied its request, but it appealed.Two of three Alberta Court of Appeal justices have dismissed the appeal, while the third said part of it should be allowed.Justices Frederica Schutz and Dawn Pentelechuk wrote in their decision that the public good of protecting the safety and privacy of children, as well as promoting an inclusive school environment, is extremely high.Dissenting Justice Bruce McDonald wrote that schools should not have their funding withheld or lose their accreditation for the next academic year when the constitutional challenge has yet to be heard.Gay-straight alliances are clubs meant to make LGBTQ students feel welcome and to prevent bullying.Amendments to Alberta’s School Act brought in by the outgoing NDP government prohibit schools from informing parents if their children join the groups.Incoming United Conservative premier Jason Kenney has said his government will revert to old legislation that allows gay-straight alliances, but without blanket privacy protection for students.Teachers who felt a student’s health or safety is at risk would have the option to tell parents their child had joined a GSA.last_img read more

Securities regulators increasingly employing tech tools to speed probes

TORONTO — Securities regulators say they are increasingly employing data analytics and other sophisticated tools to track down financial miscreants faster, but these technologies won’t be able to fully replace human judgment.The director of enforcement at the Ontario Securities Commission said Thursday that they need these tools to crunch the “mind-numbing volume of data” the regulator takes in for investigations, and do it in weeks, not years.Jeff Kehoe said during a panel discussion in Toronto that regulators can no longer use traditional tools and investigation techniques in the “new world for us,” with advances such as cryptocurrencies and high-frequency trading.“It’s like finding a needle in 50 haystacks, or 100 haystacks,” he said. “And so we need tools that not only reduce the size of the haystacks but make the needles bigger.”Regulators in recent years have put out guidance on the securities implications of blockchain, cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings as the usage of these technological innovations proliferate. Meanwhile, regulators say they too are applying technological tools to their enforcement tasks, as the volume of data at their disposal grows exponentially.The monetary authority of Singapore’s executive director of enforcement Gillian Tan said during the OSC event on Thursday it has developed a tool with data scientists to analyze data to detect circular trading patterns.When testing with known cases, it was able to detect roughly 94 to 96 per cent of what had been detected manually, she added.“What used to take us months to do, can now be done in a matter of hours,” she said. “That’s really exciting for us.”The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s co-director of enforcement Stephanie Avakian said it too has used these tools to speed up their probes, but it doesn’t replace the need for experienced investigators to go through the findings and use judgment.“The data analytics are great for identifying problems and putting together a case, but I don’t think they obviate the need for human investigators… You still need humans to go through this stuff and find the false positives,” she said.As well, Avakian said when financial misdeeds later go before a jury, human witnesses are still needed to help present their case.Kehoe added that the “promises of technology are great” but the findings they produce must be reliable and verifiable in order to be fair. read more

UNICEF working to help quakeaffected school children in Tajikistan

With thousands of children returning to school in Tajikistan in the first week of September as usual, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is working to ensure that those living in areas hit by a recent earthquake will be able to learn despite the devastation wrought by the disaster. The earthquake that rocked Qumsangir on 29 July left 5,000 children without classrooms, causing severe damage to over a dozen of the area’s 44 schools. “UNICEF stands ready to provide school-in-a-box kits, school desks and chairs for a number of affected schools before school resumes in early September,” said the agency’s Representative, Yukie Mokuo, who visited the affected sites earlier this month along with officials from the Government. The team found that many classrooms are unsafe and will not be ready for the beginning of the school year. In a news release on Wednesday, the agency warned of the threat of a possible outbreak of water-borne diseases in the area, which relies solely on a damaged irrigation canal as its source of water supply for cooking and drinking. Sanitation conditions are also poor. Immediately after the earthquake, UNICEF sent initial emergency supplies worth $10,000 containing hygiene kits, water purification tablets, towels, jerry cans and high protein biscuits to the affected areas. Another batch of supplies, mostly hygiene items, will be distributed next week in partnership with international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working on health care and hygiene promotion. UNICEF and its partners have also assessed water and sanitation and are working to ensure their long-term rehabilitation. The Government of Tajikistan is working to rebuild the damaged schools with support from the Education for All Fast Track Initiative, a global partnership between donor and developing countries to ensure universal primary education by 2015, UNICEF said. read more

One big leaguer tested positive for banned stimulant

NEW YORK — One unidentified major league player tested positive for a banned stimulant in the year ending with the World Series.Under the joint drug agreement between Major League Baseball and the players’ association, an initial positive test for a banned stimulant results in six additional urine tests over the next year rather than a suspension, and the identity is not announced. The positive test for an amphetamine was listed in the annual report issued Friday by the drug program’s Independent Public Administrator.In the year ending with the 2017 World Series, there were two positive tests for banned stimulants that did not result in a suspension, one each for Adderall and D-Amphetamine.Players not on 40-man rosters are not covered by the union and are subject to the minor league drug program, which mandates is most cases a 50-game suspension for an initial stimulant violation.Major League Baseball conducted a record 11,526 drug tests, a 39 per cent increase from two years ago, that resulted in 11 positive samples in the year ending with the World Series. There were 9,282 urine samples for performance-enhancing substances, stimulants and the drug DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), plus 2,244 blood samples for human growth hormone.Two players tested positive for the diuretic Furosemide: Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano and Chicago Cubs pitching prospect Oscar De La Cruz.There were eight positive tests for performing-enhancing substances: Washington catcher Raudy Read and Kansas City outfielder Jorge Bonifacio tested positive for Boldenone; Houston pitcher Dean Deetz and Toronto pitcher Thomas Pannone for Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (DHCMT); Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo for Erythropoietin (EPO); Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley for Ipamorelin; Minnesota shortstop Jorge Polanco for Stanozolol and Marcos Molina for Clostebol and former New York Mets pitcher Marcos Molina for Clostebol.All received 80-game suspensions except for Molina, a free agent by the time he was banned for the rest of the season on Aug. 2.There were 102 Therapeutic Use Exemptions for otherwise banned drugs: 101 for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and one for hypertension. That was down from 106 in the previous year.The report was issued by Dr. Thomas M. Martin, a retired U.S. Army colonel who is a former director of the Defence Department’s drug testing and program policy office.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsRonald Blum, The Associated Press read more

Actor Johnny Depp Actor Johnny Depp Image: Daniel Leal-Olivas PA Archive/PA Images Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL http://jrnl.ie/3218183 JOHNNY DEPP’S lavish spending – including $3 million to blast author Hunter S Thompson’s ashes from a cannon – led him to the brink of financial ruin, according to an explosive lawsuit filed yesterday.Over the best part of two decades, the 53-year-old actor has been spending $2 million a month, according to The Management Group (TMG), which is suing the star in Los Angeles for an unpaid loan.The Pirates of the Caribbean actor is alleged to have forked out $75 million on 14 homes, including a 45-acre French castle, a chain of Bahaman islands, several Hollywood homes, penthouse lofts in downtown LA and a horse farm in Kentucky.Since 2000, the Oscar-nominated actor has spent $18 million on a yacht, bought 45 luxury cars and shelled out almost $700,000 a month on wine, private planes and a staff of 40 people, according to the lawsuit.Beverly Hills-based TMG says Depp has accrued more than 200 artworks by Warhol, Klimt and other masters, 70 collectible guitars and a Hollywood memorabilia collection so extensive it is stored in 12 locations.Depp filed his own $25 million suit on 13 January accusing TMG of mismanaging his finances, taking out loans without his approval, and concealing his ruinous finances.“Over 17 years, The Management Group did everything possible to protect the actor from himself,” TMG attorney Michael Kump said in a statement.“In fact, when Depp’s bank demanded repayment of a multimillion-dollar loan and Depp didn’t have the money, the company loaned it to him so that he would avoid a humiliating financial crisis.”TMG says it repeatedly warned Depp over his “wanton” overspending, but he responded by rebuking his business managers, increasing his spending and demanding they find some way to pay for it.The firm, fired by Depp last year, says it is owed $4.2 million and was forced to launch foreclosure proceedings on Depp’s property.“The only reason Depp filed this lawsuit was to interfere with TMG’s ongoing efforts to be repaid on the loan they had made to bail him out,” TMG said.Depp and actress Amber Heard, 30, reached an out-of-court settlement in August to end their 18-month marriage, agreeing that he would pay her $7 million.- © AFP, 2017Read: Johnny Depp and Amber Heard release awkward apology video over dog smuggling Share204 Tweet Email center_img Thursday 2 Feb 2017, 7:46 AM By AFP 32,278 Views Image: Daniel Leal-Olivas PA Archive/PA Images 46 Comments Feb 2nd 2017, 7:46 AM last_img read more

Gabriel Barbosa announces move to Flamengo

first_imgBrazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa has announced he’s moved to Flamengo from Inter Milan on social mediaThe 22-year-old returned to Italy on January 7 after spending a year-long loan spell back at his old club Santos in Brazil.Barbosa had hoped to convince Inter coach Luciano Spalletti to retain him this month and give him “a chance” to prove his worth after never being handed a start in his 10 appearances for the club.While Flamengo confirmed their interest in signing Barbosa last month with Premier League side West Ham also reportedly interested.And it appears that the Brazilian has chosen to go back home by joining Flamengo after tweeting a video of himself playing Pro Evolution Soccer for the club with the caption: “I’m a player at Flamengo!”.No official announcement has been made by the club yet with Globo Esporte reporting that Barbosa has signed up on another year-long loan spell.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.Barbosa scored 18 goals in 35 Brazilian Serie A matches for Santos last season.Sabe aquela brincadeira que só acontece no vídeo game ou em sonho:⠀”Um dia eu vou jogar no Mengão, no Maraca lotado, com toda aquela nação gritando meu nome!” ☝🏾🏟Meu sonho agora é realidade. 🙌🏾⠀Eu sou jogador do @Flamengo! 🔴⚫Tamo junto Nação! 👊🏾⠀#FechadoComOMengão pic.twitter.com/WRDHIFc7fg— Gabriel Barbosa (@gabigol) January 9, 2019last_img read more

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental has more unique el

first_imgThe Landmark, Mandarin Oriental has more unique elements than nearly every other luxury hotel in Hong Kong. Where else are there seven marble steps from the lower to the upper lobby, deliberately angled so that at the top you can go through a Dior door direct into a retail salon? Where else do bedrooms have wall-set chilled cabinets to hold whatever welcome goodies culinary director Richard Ekkebus might have in mind? Where else do you have two Dutchmen, Ekkebus and his GM, Torsten van Dullemen, planning what they can do next? As it happened, that very day van Dullemen, whose next triathalon is this very Sunday 4 June 2017, was displaying his physical prowess in a demonstration at the hotel’s lovely wellness complex.Torsten van Dullemen is a follower of Joint Dynamics, the intelligent movement initiative led by David Jacquier, who has worked with the All Blacks and many other sportspeople. It seems that, apart from joggers or running machines, and a few other bits of cardiac equipment most gym ‘torture machines’ are unnatural, forcing the body into movements that never occur in normal life. Now I do not fully understand Joint Dynamics but it does sound more akin to ballroom dancing or tai chi than weight-lifting, and sometime I want to know more. But, for the moment, let me share one of the most delectable tastes I have had in a very long time. Richard Ekkebus insisted we try his caviar tart, a one-bite delight, that I actually dreamed about later – or perhaps it was the glass of Barolo Eugenio Bocchino Riserva 2006 that sparked the memory.The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental is so integral with the fine things of life that recollection can blur. Where does the hotel end and the fabulous Landmark retail begin? Get into the shopping area via that lobby exclusive, and a couple more entrances. Turn the other way into the street-set MO Bar, which attracts an after-work crowd that comes here just because it is, they think, a free-standing bar. This is where top global DJs spin, Wednesday through Saturday (coming up on Friday 16 June 2017, as an extra, is mid-fi synth-wave specialist Com Truise). In the bijou mezzanine gallery, which holds 12 at most, it seems New York’s iconic PDT – Please Don’t Tell – bar will introduce a speakeasy.Back in New York, PDT hunters go to the Crif Dogs restaurant on St Marks Place. In its old-fashioned phone booth, pick up the phone, press the buzzer and the phone booth wall opens to let you into the minute bar. This is the kind of “exclusive” that this luxury hotel loves to offer and, when it comes to overnighters, this is the kind of place that attracts the entertainment crowd and the millennially-minded of all ages; it helps that both Torsten van Dullemen and his number two, Archie Keswick, who is not Dutch but quintessentially English, of the OE (Old Etonian) style, are perennial youngsters. Stay here to relax after the chaos that is Hong Kong in your two-metre diameter circular bath-tub, preferably with plenty of Jo Malone sweet-smells, and perhaps nibbling on Richard Ekkebus crudités.Mary Gostelow travels over 300 days a year, doing one-night stands in top hotels around the world.

first_imgGerman carrier Air Berlin has announced plans to test a new satellite navigation system on board select flights.The airline has been granted approval from the Federal Air Transport Authority to carry out test flights using the Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS).All new Boeing 737NG aircraft redelivered to Air Berlin since last June have been fitted with the system, with the carrier’s bases at Berlin and Malaga also equipped with GBAS.This means that flights to Berlin and Malaga, as well as flights from the European airports could be controlled by the GBAS programme.Air Berlin currently uses the traditional Instrument Landing System (ILS) to navigate plans into airports, but suggests that GBAS is a more accurate and cost-effective option.Using GBAS will result in jet fuel savings and noise reductions in flight approach areas, Air Berlin explained.Meanwhile, the carrier has recently announced an increased emphasis on its domestic network of Spanish flights.For the winter season Air Berlin will operate flights from Palma to 11 cities in the country, as well as the Portuguese city of Faro.Additions include two daily flights to Seville from the Spanish cities of Alicante, Barcelona, Santiago de Compostela and Valencia via Palma.

Las Vegas courthouse while she was trying to determine their rightful owners But the case involving Adelson has become the most significant of her tenure In 2010 Steven Jacobs the former chief executive of Sands operation in Macau sued the company over his firing and later added Adelson as a defendant Jacobs claims he was terminated for refusing to do business with people who may have had ties to Chinese organized crime and that Adelson asked him to secretly investigate Macau government officials In 2012 Gonzalez fined Sands and Sands China $25000 for an "intention to deceive" the

proposes to offset $2 trillion in tax cuts in part by going after the deductions enjoyed by the upper middle class generally those earning $100000 to $250000 a year representing about the top 80 to 95 percent of earners The Joint Committee on Taxation found for instancethat nearly 90 percent of the state and local tax-deduction benefit went to people earning more than $100000 The House plans would cap the deduction at $10000 The Senate plan is said to eliminate the deduction entirelyIn Georgia’s 6th Congressional District which contains most of North Fulton nearly half of tax filers took this deduction well above the national average and on par with expensive coastal states"These people will probably be hit" said Roger Lusby a tax accountant in Alpharetta who said he was disappointed by the Republican’s offerings "They just don’t realize it yet"Rep Karen Handel a Republican representing the 6th District who won a closely contested special election here earlier this year defended the plan by pointing to another Joint Committee on Taxation study that found all income groups in the nation would see lower taxes in the short term on average But the report did not break down the impact at the local level and other nonpartisan research has shown that about a third of taxpayers in this income group would pay more Handel said it was a mistake to focus on deductions"It’s important to
