The Ocado share price has beaten the FTSE 100 hands down in 2020

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I bet those who invested in Ocado Group (LSE: OCDO) at the start of 2020 are smiling as they look at how well they’ve done. Approaching Christmas, the Ocado share price has climbed 80%. That’s a cracking result for any year. And it looks a little bit sweeter compared to the FTSE 100‘s fall of 15%.Ocado shares have been even higher during the year, topping out with a 125% gain in September before dropping back. But why have investors elevated a simple online supermarket to such high levels? And can the outperformance continue?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…The most recent Kantar figures give Ocado just 1.7% of the UK’s groceries market. It’s in last place, below ‘Other outlets’. By contrast, market leader Tesco commands 27% of the market. A look at the relative valuations of the two companies reveals something rather alarming. Tesco currently has a market capitalisation of approximately £21.7bn, while Ocado comes in at £17.5bn. Despite Ocado having only around 6% of Tesco’s market share, investors rate it at 80% of Tesco’s valuation. The market is clearly not valuing Ocado shares as simple supermarket stocks.Technology companyOcado’s tie-up with Marks & Spencer does appear to be going well. In the company’s last update, on 10 December, we heard of “continued positive customer response to [the] M&S offering.” Retail revenue grew by 35%, with customer orders averaging £133 in value. But we won’t see any actual profit from that any time soon. You know what profit is, the lifeblood of successful companies, and the stuff that Tesco brings in mountains of every year.It’s all about seeing Ocado as a supplier of online shopping technology and expertise. Ocado has already provided the know-how to get a number of worldwide operations under way, and investors clearly hope for more of that to come. But the big question for me is whether there really is the market in online retailing technology to justify today’s Ocado share price.Ocado share price valuationAnalysts expect Ocado to record a loss per share of around 20p this year, with a bigger loss of 22p on the cards for 2021. So trying to think of any kind of P/E valuation right now is a non-starter. And of course, there’s nothing approaching a dividend likely to come any time soon. I reckon guessing at a fair Ocado share price can only really be done by elevating fingers into the atmosphere. And my finger would pluck out something a lot lower than the actual price.But what about all that shopping technology potential? Well, plenty of others around the globe have got the market well understood. Tesco has far more experience of getting goods actually off the shelves and delivered. And there are many other companies doing online selling in vastly greater volumes than Ocado can hope. Amazon springs to mind as a world leader.The Ocado share price has done far better than I could have expected in 2020. But I really do think it’s seriously over-inflated now.

England’s double standards

first_img England convert: Shontayne Hape played league for New Zealand but has opted to wear the red rose in unionBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHE RFU have vowed that after the 2011 World Cup they will only pick players for England that are playing in England. But while they are demanding the players’ loyalty, they aren’t offering the same in return.It’s easy to see why the RFU want their players in the Aviva Premiership – they have a deal with the top-flight clubs that allows them access to those players pretty much as often as they want. But while they want their internationals and future internationals to turn down big-money offers to move to France to play in the salary cap-limited Premiership, are they giving the players the same commitment in return?Powerful prospect: Quins centre Jordan Turner-HallDylan Hartley, Riki Flutey and Shontayne Hape all hail from New Zealand, Matt Stevens is a South African while the latest man to declare his intention to don the white shirt – Leicester No 8 Thomas Waldrom – is a Kiwi with an English grandmother.If England are going to continue to favour parachuting in players from overseas for short-term gains rather than developing home-grown youngsters, why should those talented young Englishmen turn down the opportunity to set themselves up for life post-rugby with bigger pay cheques in France?Let’s take centre as an example. Dominic Waldouck has long been earmarked for full England honours, has come up through the age groups and has steadily improved at Wasps. Harlequins’ Jordan Turner-Hall and George Lowe are another two exciting prospects at centre. All three are home-grown and, in fact, Waldouck and Turner-Hall have both been involved with the senior England squad without winning a cap. TAGS: Wasps Test hopeful: Thomas Waldrom has an English grandmotherInstead one player who turned out for New Zealand in rugby league internationals – Hape – and another who was never deemed good enough for the All Blacks – Flutey – have been preferred in the England midfield.I’m not denying that they’re good players, but what message does it send out to today’s youngsters if those who take pride in wearing the red rose in their teenage years and work hard for their club then find their passage to the England team blocked by players born overseas.The case of Waldrom is even more telling about attitudes to New Zealanders. As soon as the news broke about his English grandmother, people were talking about him displacing Nick Easter in the England No 8 shirt. Yes, he’s played well for Leicester this season and could excel in international rugby, but this is a player brushed aside by the All Blacks and should we be so excited about someone in his 30s who has far from a long future left in the game. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the short term his being capped could work well for England, but long term the national team could suffer. Young No 8s being passed over might look for a big overseas club deal thinking their Test prospects are limited. Players will get sick of biding their time if they continue to see foreigners gaining honours.If England want their new policy to work post-RWC 2011, they need to start showing home-grown players the same loyalty that they are asking for. Short-term gains can equal long-term pains.last_img read more

But it’s a tool that’s still largely untapped…“Our goal is to give the charities accepted by the Transform Foundation an insight into what’s achievable through Facebook and the skills to manage campaigns themselves in the future.” UK charities can now apply for £5,000 grants to be spent on ‘innovative’ Facebook advertising campaigns. The funding comes from Transform Foundation, the charity that provides small and mid-sized charities with funding, research and training to transform their digital presence and increase their sustainable fundraising.Transform Foundation already offer grants for charities to redevelop their websites. Google already offers up to $10,000 per month of free advertising to eligible charities through its Google for Nonprofits programme. So this funding fills a gap for those charities keen to explore or extend their advertising on Facebook.Even better, the funding programme comes with an optional legacy campaign advertising element.Rolling out in 2017Competition for the funds is likely to be tight because the Foundation’s Facebook Advertising Grant Programme will be rolled out on a monthly basis throughout 2017. Each month five £5,000 grants will be allocated to UK charities , following an initial month of five pilot grants.Applications for the Facebook Advertising Grant Programme are now open.There are restrictions of course. For example charities must have a Facebook presence with over 1,000 Facebook likes.Free managed legacy advertising campaign serviceCharities that received the funding can also make use of an optional free managed campaign service to help them make the most of the opportunity by focusing on using Facebook adverts to attract legacy donors.This service includes the strategy, content creation and advertising monitoring for each charity’s Facebook campaign funded by the grants. It is provided by Farewill, the Transform Foundation’s preferred partner for this project. The digital will-writing service manages Facebook campaigns for a number of charities. Dan Garrett, CEO, Farewill, commented: Advertisement  635 total views,  8 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis223 What Transform Foundation doesTransform Foundation’s grant programmes has two aims:raising more funds for each funded charityand using comparative data to benchmark best practice in online giving for the success of the sector.As a result, it knows that its first website grant programme has resulted in charities raising more than £1.3 million in its first year.David Melville, Chair of the trustees of Transform Foundation, explains:“Transform Foundation was set up to empower small and mid-sized charities to transform their digital presence and capability to raise money online by teaming up with proven experts in the digital world. In Farewill, we have secured a partner that fits that profile and in Facebook, the world’s leading social network, charities have an unrivalled platform to spread their word and raise funds. This year, we will be announcing more strategic partners and grant programmes to help charities maximise their fundraising and impact online.”Melville has a long background in digital. He was Legal Director of Freeserve prior to its flotation and ultimate sale to Orange (now EE) for over $2.3 billion in 2000, and has also headed up the legal teams at Argos and Amazon. Applications for the Facebook Advertising Grant Programme opened yesterday.last_img read more

Letters

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article LettersOn 1 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today This week’s lettersEmployers should give the older workforce a chance I have a 30-year HR career building businesses in the finance, IT andtelecoms sectors in the UK, continental European and Asian markets. My role wasmade redundant and I hit 50 at around the same time. For the first time, I actively sought a job and aimed for a ‘head of HR’role in a medium-sized business, or a director in a larger organisation. Armed with guidance and advice from an outplacement firm, I built mymarketing plan, networked and attacked the market for both interim andpermanent roles. I was particularly unprepared for one specific response to my enquiries – Iwas too old. I had naively concluded my age wouldn’t be a problem. After all,successful businesses look for talent irrespective of race, sexual orientation,religious conviction, age etc. Don’t they? I guess there are genuine underlying reasons for this discrimination. Imight have to leave the company bash to catch the last train home. Then again,I might also manage to get some sleep over a weekend, and be slightly lessirritable than my younger colleagues most Mondays, which surely illustrates alack of team spirit. I might even have the occasional opinion that maychallenge a perceived wisdom. That would get me labelled as ‘set in my ways’,and veering towards inflexibility. Because I was ‘elderly’, I would be totally unaware of (and to be honest,uninterested in) swiftly forming and dissolving relationships and sexualtensions within the department, and there my judgement would almost surely beimpeded. As for my powers of concentrationÉ well, I’m not sure I can recallwhere I was going with that last point! Based on this analysis, maybe there is legitimate reason for practising agediscrimination while recruiting. I have to admit, there has been great sensitivity employed when drawing theproblem of my age to my attention. Here are a few of the more ‘creative’explanations as to why my applications didn’t succeed: – ‘The client was looking for someone at an earlier stage of their career’ – ‘The client was looking for someone who was more mouldable’ – ‘The client was looking for an up and comer, not someone who was alreadythere’ – ‘Most organisations would tend to recruit newer talent’ – ‘There isn’t enough clear space between your profile and the boss’s’ – ‘We have decided to go for someone who has longer-term possibilities’(good grief! Better take a closer look at the last medical report). Poetic, but frustrating. Based on my experiences, anti-ageism legislationcan’t come soon enough. Ian Clabby Details supplied Youth is not the only key to a skills crisis In his column, John Connolly highlighted the contraction of the EU’sworking-age population – a reduction of 40 million people in the next 50 years(Professional agenda, 4 May). But his assumption that the only solution to ourshrinking workforce is to invest increasingly more in younger people isshort-sighted. We need to extend working age and better utilise the workforces we alreadyhave. There is a pool of older, talented and experienced people who continue tobe excluded from the labour market. More than a million people aged 50-64 wouldwork if they could, and many over 65 would perhaps like the opportunity tocontinue working. Of course, there must be investment in the education and training of young people,but Connolly fails to acknowledge that the traditional employment model of ajob for life and retiring to make way for fresh blood is well past its sell-bydate. Employers and the Government must ensure that the whole workforce has theskills needed for work, whatever their age. Sam Mercer Director, The Employers Forum on Age Flexible work is not just a parental issue The article ‘Childcare? What Childcare?’ (25 May) rightly identifies abarrier to retaining and attracting good staff who might otherwise fall intothe ‘Bermuda Triangle’ of parenthood. But childcare isn’t just about crècheprovision or nursery vouchers. Certainly, at pre-school stage, parents want to maximise their time withtheir children and their income for childcare provision. However, once theystart school, pick-up times and long holidays dictate a different flexibleworking formula, and after the move to secondary school, those requirementschange again. Employers should start to look at the client requirements of their businessand think creatively around a 24/7 – or at least 24/5 – scenario. Thetraditional nine-to-five mindset suits very few as a rigid structure,particularly where companies operate across different time zones. Re-engineeredhours – and team-based, rather than dictated solutions – can increase bothflexibility and better service the needs of the business. Employers need to study their business culture, and make it less rigid andmore open to change. The workplace has changed dramatically in the past fiveyears, and smart employers will understand that change is on-going. Theevolving requirements of their staff and clients means that flexibility is theonly constant. Don’t make this an issue only for parents. Carol Savage Managing director, Flexecutive.co.uk Perseverance is the way to get on in HR I read Melanie Callaghan’s letter (Letters, 11 May) with interest. I too, found it extremely difficult to get my foot in the proverbial HRdoor, after completing a degree in business administration. Perseverance was mymiddle name for a good while after I left university, but I am glad to say thatit paid off, and after starting (and self-funding) my CIPD course in peoplemanagement and development, I managed to find a job as an HR assistant at theUniversity of Central Lancashire. It has proved to be the best move I ever made and I just wanted to assurepeople that it possible to progress up the HR ladder. You just have to keep atit and it will happen – eventually. Congratulations to Personnel Today for producing a fabulous magazine. Ithoroughly enjoy reading it every week! Liz Bush HR assistant, University of Central Lancashire Bogus data fee scam sets sights on h&s Following your past coverage of the scam of organisations receiving demandsfor payment for bogus data protection registration, they have now moved on tohealth and safety. We have just received a letter from something called the ‘Health &Safety Registration Enforcement Division, Rochdale’. It states we are notregistered as being compliant with the Health & Safety Act 1974, andtherefore risk up to two years imprisonment per offence, disqualification ofdirectors and unlimited fines. To avoid such actions, we should return a formwith a registration fee of £199 if we are compliant, or £249 if we feel we arenot! Evidently, yet another scam is trying to make a fast buck from employerswho are not fully aware of the legislation. Steve Chilcott HR manager ,Octavia Housing and Care last_img read more

Australia: Vertical Launch System Installed in First AWD

first_img View post tag: system Back to overview,Home naval-today Australia: Vertical Launch System Installed in First AWD Industry news The Vertical Launch System (VLS) has been successfully installed in the first Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD). Combat proven with more than 3,500 successful missile firings, the MK 41 VLS module has been deployed by 12 navies, in more than 20 different ship classes in more than 180 ships. View post tag: AWD The system is a modular design with the basic foundation being an eight-cell MK 41 VLS module that can be assembled in desired numbers to meet specific mission and hull requirements. It is approximately 6.7 metres long and is installed below deck.A considerable amount of pre-work was undertaken to ensure installation ran smoothly and due to the sensitivity of the equipment on the VLS modules, a weather-tight staging area was constructed to ensure there was no risk of the equipment getting wet.The nature of the lift was a first, made possible by using the Manitowoc crane’s two hooks to successfully rotate the equipment from the horizontal to the vertical, and save time during the rotation. Traditionally, this is done using two separate cranes by BIW in the United States.The installation was a highly precise exercise, with an allowance of only 1mm on one side, and up to 10mm on other sides. Expert guidance was provided by a Test Director who travelled from the United States to verify the installation checkpoints.The success of the operation was evident when the first two modules were installed on the first day and the remaining four modules on the second day, when the schedule had allowed for the installation of one module per day.The thoroughness of preparation, organisation and team work allowed this significant time saving and further, through lessons learned in the installation to ship 01, the rigging team believe that it may be possible to load out all six modules in just one day for the remaining ships.[mappress]Press Release, May 7, 2014; Image: ASC Australia: Vertical Launch System Installed in First AWD May 7, 2014 View post tag: verticalcenter_img View post tag: launch View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: installed View post tag: first View post tag: News by topic Share this articlelast_img read more

Speech: Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster speech to CBI Scotland

first_img and for us to conduct our own trade policy and sign free trade agreements that will benefit businesses and consumers here in Scotland, as well as those in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland too Thank you Paul for that kind introduction – and thank you everyone for that very generous welcome.Before I start, and on behalf of everyone here, can I pay tribute to Paul, your tenure with the CBI, and for everything you have done on behalf of the thousands of businesses across the UK.Leading this organisation through two general elections and a referendum on our membership of the European Union would be a tall ask for anyone, but you have kept the CBI at the forefront of our national debate – and it is fair to say you have kept the UK Government permanently on our toes.And so for that I thank you, and wish you all the success in the future.It is a pleasure to be with you today, and to have the great privilege of addressing CBI Scotland. And it is also a pleasure to be back here in Edinburgh.Whenever I visit this great city, I am constantly reminded of the weight of history that is all around us.Edinburgh isn’t simply a thriving, modern capital within our United Kingdom.It is the cradle of so much that our country, and indeed Europe, can celebrate in terms of philosophy, literature, architecture, poetry and political thought.It is the birthplace of the Scottish Enlightenment, a period in our history when pragmatism, reason and freedom of thought rose to the fore.And so it is the proud home of many of our finest intellectual figures, such as Adam Smith, whose statue stands proudly just a few streets away from here, and whose legacy continues to remind us of that virtue of choice that is so integral to our economic way of life and wellbeing.That is what I want to touch on very briefly with you this lunchtime: the importance of making choices – not just in the economic sense, but in the political sphere too.The choice to leave the EUBecause politics is ultimately about having preferences and making choices.Left or right; conservative or socialist; liberal or protectionist; Unionist or Nationalist; I guess Hearts or Hibs; even Celtic or Rangers – it is the virtue of having different choices which makes democracy something we must always cherish and respect.I am sure there are many of you here who voted to Remain in the European Union nearly two years ago. As many of you will know, I also fought hard for such an outcome.But on June 23rd 2016, the British people made a clear choice to leave the European Union and forge a new and different path for ourselves in the world.Now it is incumbent all of us, both individuals and governments, not just to accept that choice as democrats – and not merely to understand why the British people made that choice – but to minimise the risks and seize the opportunities that this choice presents.Now there will be those here in this room who, for perfectly understandable reasons, have concerns about the challenges we face – and want nothing more than certainty and clarity as negotiations proceed.But you should be in no doubt of the resolve of the UK Government to respond to those concerns and deliver a Brexit that prioritises certainty and clarity for businesses and consumers in all four parts of our union.Update on negotiationsAnd as negotiations proceed, that is precisely what we are doing.We have already agreed a fair deal on citizens’ rights, ensuring that EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals can get on with their lives broadly as they are now.We’ve agreed a good financial settlement for British taxpayers, made in the spirit of our future partnership with the EU.We’ve agreed a Joint Declaration with the EU that makes clear our mutual determination to preserve the Common Travel Area, avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and uphold the totality of relationships embodied in the Belfast Agreement, both East-West and North-South.And we’ve reached agreement with the EU on an implementation period, providing that certainty and clarity for people and businesses so they will only see one change when we enter into a new relationship with the EU in the future.So while these are real achievements we have made in the interests of businesses and individuals across our country, we must now look to build our future economic partnership with the European Union.In her speech at Mansion House in March this year, the Prime Minister set out her aim for a deep and comprehensive partnership in which: for trade at the UK-EU border to be as frictionless as possible And I am pleased to say that, despite what you may have read, this work is now nearing completion.So as negotiations continue, these are choices that will have the best interests of Scottish businesses and consumers at their heart, and the need to provide clarity and certainty as soon as possible for you all.Importance of the UK common marketBecause this is a long road that has many different twists and turns, as we together journey out of the European Union.But as negotiations continue on that future deep and special partnership we all want to see, we must not forget the need for certainty and clarity here at home as well.It is why the UK has a responsibility, through our modern industrial strategy, to improve living standards, spread prosperity and promote growth around all parts of our country, and ensure we are match fit for the next wave of technological change that is fast approaching.For example, our Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund is providing £795 million for potential innovators, and we are working to ensure as many Scottish bidders as possible are successful.And we are investing in new City Deals – which have been committed to or agreed for all seven of Scotland’s cities – as well as a Borderlands Growth Deal to help secure prosperity in southern Scotland. We have also opened formal negotiations for the Ayrshire Growth Deal.But it is also why the UK has a deep-seated responsibility to maintain the integrity of our union.When I spoke in North Wales earlier this year about the value of our union, I emphasised the importance the UK Government places on preserving the common market of the United Kingdom – what many of you may refer to as the “internal market” or the “UK single market” that comprises Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.I also emphasised why it is so crucial that our businesses and consumers face no new internal barriers to conducting their business on the day of our exit in March next year.For it is only by maintaining the coherence of that common market – and keeping barriers to trade within it to an absolute minimum – that businesses and consumers in all parts of our union can continue to benefit.Preserving that common market is exactly what the EU Withdrawal Bill, currently making its way through Parliament, will do.It will make sure that, as we carry out the delicate process of transferring European Union law back onto the UK statute book, we do so as smoothly as possible…The current regulatory and legal framework will remain in place, but on a UK rather than an EU legal footing.If and when we wish to move away in future from the current rules, we can do so in a considered and deliberate fashion, taking account of consultation with business.So it will make sure that when we leave the European Union in March next year, we do so in a way that avoids a damaging cliff-edge for businesses, firms; factories, industries and consumers alike – so that businesses have certainty from day one of our exit.And on devolution, the Bill will make sure that, as this process is carried out, we retain the ability to keep common and temporary UK frameworks where necessary, while we work on the long term solution – such as one set of package labelling and hygiene rules, instead of four different ones.The Bill respects the devolution settlement – but stops short of giving any part of the UK a veto over that temporary mechanism.This has always been a red line for us.For if one part of the UK has a veto over the ability to establish a common framework across the rest of the UK, it could be used to undermine this common market we all, everyone in this room, prospers from.And the message we have from business is that the UK common market is vital to their growth and prosperity.For Scottish businesses trade four times as much with the rest of the UK as they do with the EU.And as businessmen and women you want to be sure that your factories in Paisley and farms in Perthshire will be able to continue selling their goods freely to customers in Preston and Swansea and Londonderry.And not only will the temporary preservation of common frameworks guarantee certainty for businesses trading within the United Kingdom – it will mean that, with a clear set of commonly-recognised standards, we can agree those new trade deals with the global growth markets of tomorrow as well.Indeed, when I visited China just last month, I saw first-hand how hard our network of embassies around the world work to promote both UK and Scottish exports, such as the finest Scotch Whisky, of which 61 per cent of exports go to countries outside the EU.I even had the pleasure of seeing the First Minister during my visit to China, who was also using the network of UK embassies to promote Scottish goods overseas.And just this morning I was visiting Diageo here in Edinburgh hearing about the breadth of ambition the industry has to reach new and emerging markets and build on the strength of the internationally renowned quality of Scottish food and drink.And during my last visit to Scotland in January, I also visited a Marine Harvest factory in Rosyth, specialising in salmon sales and learned that not only do they sell to every part of the UK, but export the fish heads to China and the skins to Thailand, where they are made into crisps.That is why having a successful domestic market and competitive global markets are complementary to one another, and why the UK Government is committed to delivering directly for Scottish businesses and consumers.Put simply, respecting and preserving the United Kingdom common market is to uphold one of the fundamental expressions of the constitutional integrity that underpins our existence as a union.But put even more simply, any attempt to undermine that common market would represent a self-inflicted blow to the thousands of firms who owe their prosperity to its success.Clause 11 negotiationsNow I am well aware from the conversations I have had with Scottish and Welsh businesses that what they care about is what all this means for business – and whether it provides the certainty they need.That is why all of us – Westminster, Cardiff and Holyrood – have worked hard to identify only those absolutely essential areas where we agree that UK-wide frameworks are needed.And of course it is worth underlining that we already have UK-wide frameworks in all these areas right now.Our approach as we leave the EU however, is to see the vast majority of powers returning from Brussels bypass Westminster entirely.Indeed, we have moved a considerable distance in the spirit of compromise and collaboration so as to ensure we reach a deal with the Scottish and Welsh Governments that not merely respects the devolution settlements and improves upon them, but also upholds the Sewel Convention and provides the certainty that businesses require.That is why I was pleased that the Welsh Government, in this spirit of pragmatism, recently agreed to our approach, and to recommend the Welsh Assembly give legislative consent to the Withdrawal Bill.As the Welsh CBI, the Federation of Small Business in Wales, and the Farmers Union of Wales have all made clear, this deal is very good not only for the Welsh economy and its people, but for the whole of the UK too.And as the First Minister for Wales himself said this week: “the nature of an agreement is that you come to ground that you believe to be common ground”.I am glad that thanks to the joint work of the three governments there is now far more common ground between all.The door is still openBut it is also why it is disappointing that the Scottish Government still does not feel able to sign up to our proposals and deliver that certainty for businesses.Of course, it is now for the Scottish Parliament to decide what view it wants to take on the compromise we have reached, and that we have now agreed with the Welsh Government.So that is why I say to the Scottish Government – and to the Scottish Parliament – the door is still open.At a stroke, they can join the Welsh Government – who have also put so much into getting us to this stage – and recommend to the Parliament here in Holyrood that we should end any lingering question of legal uncertainty for businesses in all parts of the UK.Indeed, just a couple of weeks ago, the Food and Drink Federation Scotland, Scottish Bakers, and the Scottish Retail Consortium all emphasised the importance of the UK common market.How it benefits Scotland’s businesses enormously by lowering costs and increasing efficiency and how it also benefits Scotland’s consumers by providing more choice and keeping prices down.And as the Scottish Government themselves have agreed, it makes sense for there to be frameworks applying across the UK in some areas.But no matter what the Scottish Government decides, I want to reiterate that the UK Government is committed to acting in accordance with the Intergovernmental Agreement that – even now at this late stage – is open to the Scottish Government to sign up to.Scottish businesses can see this in black and white: our Intergovernmental Agreement is public for all to see.You can have that certainty and clarity that we will work to agree the approach needed to protect our vital common market, and that we will respect – in full – the devolution settlements as we do so.ConclusionSo as we all face choices, the Scottish Government also faces a choice.But I am confident that, if we work together, we can and will forge a path that fully respects the democratic choice the United Kingdom made two years ago while maximising clarity and certainty wherever we can for our families and businesses not just here in Scotland, but across our whole country.For our union is strongest when each of its constituent parts is strong and working together.As I have said before, the unity that exists between our four nations gives us a scale of ambition that none of us could possess alone.But this ambition can only be realised if we do work together, and make those choices that are truly in the national interest.For together, we are a union that is greater than the sum of its parts.A country that can remain a strong, global leader.A United Kingdom at home.And an active, force for good in the world.Thank you very much. trade between the UK and the EU would be as frictionless as possible She also made clear that one important objective in building that partnership would be to seek a new customs arrangement with the European Union.At Lancaster House in 2017, the Prime Minister said that we will be leaving the EU’s customs union, its Common Commercial Policy, and the Common External Tariff.But she also said that we do want to have a customs agreement with the EU. As she said, we have an open mind on how: it is not the means that matter, but the ends.And that is why last year, we set out two potential options for what this new customs arrangement might be.Option one was a customs partnership between the UK and the EU, in which the UK would mirror the EU’s requirements for imports from the rest of the world, applying the same tariffs and the same rules of origin as the EU for those goods arriving in the UK and intended for the EU.The other option was a highly streamlined customs arrangement, in which we would jointly agree to implement a range of measures to minimise frictions to trade.This would include waivers for goods moving between the UK and the EU, “trusted trader” schemes, specific exemptions for small businesses, and online systems – such as for customs declarations to be made far from the border, as is already the case with VAT declarations when VAT regimes between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are different.But whatever option we are discussing, our objectives remain the same: and in which there is no hard border on the island of Ireland with no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland UK regulatory standards remain at least as high as the EU’slast_img read more

Dickinson & Morris launches new lines

first_imgDickinson & Morris is looking to drum up more business during National Baking Week (15-21 October) by launching an eclectic range of European breads and confectionery.The bakery firm, based in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, said the new products will land on shelves at its Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe next Monday.Ten confectionery products will be introduced, including florentines, coconut madeleines and a range of Bandolino cakes, along with seven new bread varieties such as Pia Do Crescent and Pia Twists, Pumpernickel and a light rye bread.Steve Fogo, bakery manager at Dickinson & Morris, told the Melton Times: “We’re launching the new products in line with National Baking Week. We’re recognised for our pork pies, but to complement that we want to introduce quality traditional breads from around Europe and confectionery lines to match.“We felt we hadn’t been doing justice to the rest of our products and realise that our confectionery and bread range haven’t really been updated for about four or five years. I was invited to go to Germany with two companies and ingredients suppliers in May and, from there, we developed some new products.”last_img read more

Unions call for urgent talk with Premier

first_imgUnite has called for urgent talks with the bosses of Premier Foods following the announcement it will cut 900 jobs from its bread division.Unite, the country’s largest union, has more than 2,500 members across all divisions of Premier FoodsUnite national officer for food and drink Jennie Formby said: “The joint trade unions are calling for an urgent national meeting with Premier Foods’ management to discuss the implications of today’s announcement which is a devastating blow for the 900 workers, their families and the local communities in west London and Birmingham.”She added: “This is just another stage in the disaster story that has been Premier Foods over recent years, which has consistently struggled ever since its decision to buy Hovis in 2006.“At the time, this strategy was described as ‘doomed’ by some analysts and it has resulted in the company being saddled with massive debts. “Management claims the job losses are as a result of ‘competition and wheat prices’, but the reality is that our members are continuing to pay the heavy price of Premier’s failure to make a success of the business and we remain extremely concerned about the future of the remaining business.”last_img read more

Roberts Bakery partners county show

first_imgCheshire-based Roberts Bakery sponsored the food halls at the Royal Cheshire County Show this month, and used the opportunity to present an educational programme. The family-owned bakery sponsored the Roberts Bakery Food Halls for the 11th consecutive year.The halls at the 300-acre showground at Tabley, near Knutsford, accommodated more than 90 producers and purveyors during the two-day event.

Sing me Ishmael

first_img“Moby-Dick,” Herman Melville’s 1851 novel about obsession (and a great white whale) might not seem like a natural for a musical. Then again, neither did Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” and that became a Broadway hit as “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.” To playwright Dave Malloy, who brought “Great Comet” to the stage, such “classic weird novels” are perfect for musical adaptations, not least because they give him so much to work with.“It’s such a great sprawling mess,” says Malloy of “Moby-Dick,” which will have its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in a Dec. 3 preview, eight days before opening night. The production, with Malloy’s music, lyrics, book, and orchestrations, will reunite much of the “Great Comet” team, including Tony Award-winning director Rachel Chavkin, who helped develop the show, music director Or Matias, and designers Mimi Lien and Bradley King, and bring in choreographer Chanel DaSilva.In many ways, says Malloy, “Moby-Dick” lends itself to adaptation. “The book is written more like a play at times than a novel, and other sections are like essays on fiction or different ways of cooking whales,” he enthuses. “Melville played with form. He really breaks the idea of what a novel can be, and I’m very attracted to things like that.”,Like Malloy’s earlier hit, which had its A.R.T. debut in 2015, the musical “Moby-Dick” winnows through its genre-hopping source, extracting universal themes from the novel. Unlike “Great Comet,” however, “Moby-Dick” is a quintessentially American work, says Malloy, addressing topics from the 19th century that remain relevant today.“One thing we’re doing is we’re very much taking an American novel and really looking at it as a way of looking at America,” he says.One of the major themes of both the musical and the book, for example, is “talking about race in America,” says Malloy. The crew of the Pequod, Melville’s doomed ship, included Queequeg, the son of a South Seas chief; the Native American Tashtego; the Parsee harpooner Fedallah; and the African Daggoo. On the A.R.T. stage, these characters will be portrayed by a multiracial and mixed-gender cast. “Melville has this utopian vision of all these people living together and working together in harmony,” says Malloy. With Captain Ahab at the helm, however, “it also tells a story of white supremacy,” he notes. “Having this old white man lead the ship toward its doom.”,The musical also addresses humankind’s environmental impact, a concern that Melville brought up nearly 170 years ago. “There’s a whole chapter where he talks about the buffalo, and asks, ‘Will the whale go the way of the buffalo?’” Malloy says. Despite these prescient worries, he continues, Melville gets it wrong. “He’s like, ‘No, whales can escape to the North Pole.’ He was very optimistic about the whale’s chances.”In the A.R.T. version, a darker vision will be reflected in the set and the show’s puppets, which use ocean trash as a visible reminder of what we have done to our world.Puppets? Yes, “We have this incredible puppet designer, Eric Avery,” says Malloy. “All of the puppets are made out of recycled ocean trash, plastic bottles, and things like that.”,Trash will also be used to depict some of the more visual aspects of the book, such as the “industrial rolls of blubber” that the whalers work with after a successful hunt. Whether such detritus will depict Moby-Dick itself, Malloy won’t say.“That would be a spoiler!” He laughs, even as he dismisses the idea that pollution is our “great white whale.”“That’s what makes it such a great novel: the multifaceted beauty of the white whale,” he says. “It represents different things to different people on the Pequod, and we’re certainly doing that as well. To Ahab it represents God and Nature and to other people on the ship it represents white supremacy. There’s a lot going on that the white whale can represent.” Gilbert and Sullivan drop the mic Lessons of ‘West Side Story’ Cast and crew of new production wrestle with the classic musical’s racial, ethnic, and political complications Longtime Harvard troupe returns to stage ‘H.M.S.

After Meltdown – Best Practices for Updating Your PowerEdge Server’s BIOS

first_imgThe recent news of side-channel analysis vulnerabilities affecting many modern microprocessors has, as you can imagine, generated more than a few inquiries from our customers about updating their PowerEdge servers. If you’re in the same boat, asking yourself “What comes next? How do I apply these BIOS updates?”, then this post should help.First things first, applying a BIOS update to a PowerEdge server is easy. Dell supplies different tools so you can choose the method best suited to your particular IT environment and needs.Updating One or Two Servers?If you’re just updating one or two servers in a small shop, a BIOS update packages can be obtained from support.dell.com manually by keying in your server’s system tag and then looking for a BIOS update such as that shown in figure 1.Fig 1 – support.dell.com showing a BIOS update for PowerEdge serverNOTE: Dell EMC downloads and driver updates are free. That’s always been the case and there are no plans to change that.Downloading this file and then applying it manually to a local server is straightforward, but if you have hundreds or more servers in a remote data center you’ll want to keep reading because we have better options for you.Updating Lots of Servers, Even AutomaticallyIntelligent Automation is a Dell EMC hallmark, and Dell EMC offers a range of OpenManage solutions that can simplify mass server updates. With Dell EMC Repository Manager, new updates from Dell EMC online catalogs can be automatically downloaded, as shown in figure 2.Fig 2 – Dell EMC Repository Manager interfaceYou can tell Repository Manager when to download updates, which servers you own, and what kind of updates you want. You can also command Repository Manager to download different sets of updates for different logical or physical groups of servers, and then to separate them into repositories in different locations. This gives you the flexibility to support different deployment methods.So now you have a BIOS update. You’ve tested it and you want to deploy it to the production servers in your datacenter. Now what? Dell EMC recommends one of the following approaches to automate updates:Use OpenManage Essentials or OpenManage EnterpriseUse an OpenManage integration for either Microsoft System Center or VMware vCenterCreate a custom automation script that operates with standard management APIs provided by the iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller embedded in every PowerEdge server.As an example, OpenManage Enterprise, the next-generation Dell EMC management console, provides a simple click-and-go process to schedule and perform BIOS updates for thousands of servers (see figure 3).Fig 3 – OpenManage Enterprise screen showing target servers to updateThose systems will process the update as scheduled and with no further intervention. If you’re new to managing PowerEdge servers, this is an easy way to efficiently update thousands of servers without a lot of effort.If you already manage your IT environment with an existing management platform such as System Center or vSphere, our integrations and connections make short work of incorporating PowerEdge servers.And you use scripts to perform IT operations, we offer resources on Dell TechCenter as well as open source PowerShell and Python Scripting repositories http://github.com/dell. These assets provide a good starting point for automation, and can be adapted to the specifics of your IT environment.Dell EMC Advantage: Dell EMC provides the tools to deploy updates in a manner that best suits your needs. We realize that one method does not fit all situations.Final ThoughtsDell EMC makes a variety of tools so you can perform server updates quickly and securely, particularly as part of an automated one-to-many update workflow. And because Dell EMC provides easy-to-use tools that integrate well with each other and with third-party tools, they are readily adapted to a variety of IT environments.If you want to download a slightly longer version of this post, you can find it online at http://dell.to/2CpiSEg. For detailed, technical information on performing updates on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, please visit this Dell TechCenter archive: http://dell.to/2o04cSn or for more on OpenManage systems management tools and technologies, please reference the Dell TechCenter wiki at http://dell.to/2w4myYE.last_img read more

Same Old Browns? Hardly. Cleveland Drills Steelers 48-37

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) Image by Matt Starkey / ClevelandBrowns.com.PITTSBURGH (AP) — So much for the weight of history. Or practicing. Or having your head coach on the sideline. Or an emotional leader on the field.The Cleveland Browns overcame all of it. The burden of carrying the mantle of a franchise that’s long been a punchline. A schedule ravaged by a COVID-19 outbreak. A rival that for years has treated them like a harmless little brother.All of that’s over. For now. And maybe for good.The Browns dismantled the Pittsburgh Steelers 48-37 in the wild-card round Sunday night, picking up the franchise’s first postseason victory in more than a quarter-century and earning a trip to Kansas City next Sunday to face the defending Super Bowl champions. “We believe in the people in the room no matter what’s going on,” quarterback Baker Mayfield said. “We knew that everybody was counting us out. There was no extra pressure or anything. No one believed in us besides us.”Playing with first-year head coach Kevin Stefanski, Pro Bowl guard Joel Bitonio and top cornerback Denzel Ward back in Cleveland after all tested positive for COVID-19, Cleveland (12-5) raced to the biggest first half by a road team in NFL playoff history then held on.Mayfield threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns, including a screen pass that Nick Chubb turned into a 40-yard score that halted Pittsburgh’s momentum after the Steelers pulled within 12. Kareem Hunt added 48 yards and two TDs on the ground while Cleveland’s defense forced five turnovers to hand the Steelers (12-5) a staggering loss.The victory was the Browns’ first postseason triumph of any kind since beating New England on New Year’s Day 1995 — three months before Mayfield was born — and their first playoff win on the road since Dec. 28, 1969.The significance wasn’t lost on special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, a Cleveland native who found himself filling in when Stefanski tested positive for COVID-19.“I grew up (a Browns fan), so I know what this means,” Priefer said.Cleveland did it despite practicing just once over the last two weeks and having lost 17 straight at Heinz Field. The Browns did it with efficiency and swagger. And they did it with Priefer at the controls and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt taking over the play-calling duties as Stefanski watched in his basement back in Ohio.“We have a resilient team,” Mayfield said. “Defense played great in the first half and we kind of stalled out and let them climb back in the game, but that’s a great team win right there — guys stepping up all over the board. I’m proud of these guys.”The Steelers certainly helped, ending a season in which they started 11-0 with a thud that could reverberate for years. Ben Roethlisberger ended his comeback season by throwing for 501 yards on an NFL-record 47 completions with four touchdowns and four interceptions.“I don’t have any magical answers,” Roethlisberger said. “We just didn’t put it together. Tonight, the glaring issues is we turned the ball over.”And over. And over. And the NFL’s third-ranked defense could do little to stem the tide. The Steelers led the NFL in sacks but failed to get to Mayfield. Cleveland’s 48 points were the most Pittsburgh has given up in the playoffs, surpassing the 45 to Jacksonville in the 2017 playoffs.Pittsburgh’s problems started on the first play from scrimmage when center Maurkice Pouncey’s snap sailed by Roethlisberger into the end zone. Cleveland’s Karl Joseph fell on it for a touchdown. Roethlisberger threw three first-half interceptions, two of which led directly to Browns scores.By the time the Steelers found their footing, they were down 28-0. Even when they did get it going on a 1-yard touchdown run by James Conner with 1:44 to go in the half, the Browns stormed right back. Mayfield capped a cathartic opening half with a masterful 64-yard drive that ended with a 7-yard toss to Austin Hooper with 34 seconds remaining. Pittsburgh countered with a field goal in the closing seconds but trailed 35-10 at the break.Pittsburgh tried to claw back in it. The Steelers pulled within 35-23 at the end of the third quarter. Facing fourth-and-1 at the Pittsburgh 46 on the first play of the fourth, Tomlin opted to punt.“I wanted to pin them down and maybe provide a short field for their offense,” Tomlin said. “I just wanted to keep the momentum going in terms of field positioning.”It didn’t work out. The kick bounced into the end zone for a touchback and Mayfield calmly took Cleveland 80 yards in six plays. The sideline erupted as Chubb streaked into the end zone.So much for the Browns being the Browns, a winking assessment Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster made about Cleveland in the middle of the week. Regardless of the intent — Smith-Schuster said after the game he didn’t regret it — Mayfield and All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett took it to heart.Then, in front of a mostly empty stadium and a national audience so accustomed to seeing them stumble, the Browns, who didn’t win a game in Garrett’s first season, took out their frustration by landing one haymaker after another.“We’re the Cleveland Browns,” Garrett said with a smirk. “Same old Cleveland Browns.”Not so much anymore.INJURIESBrowns: All-Pro tackle Jack Conklin was cleared to play after being listed as questionable with an “illness” on Friday. His return didn’t last long. He exited in the first half with a hamstring injury. Guard Michael Dunn, stepping in for Bitonio, left in the fourth quarter with a calf issue.Steelers: Rookie linebacker Alex Highsmith sustained a high ankle sprain in the second half and did not return.UP NEXTBrowns: Will make their first divisional-round appearance since the 1994 playoffs when they face the Chiefs.Steelers: Head into what will be a busy offseason. Several high-profile players, including Smith-Schuster and outside linebacker Bud Dupree, will become free agents. The 38-year-old Roethlisberger will also have to decide whether he wants to return for an 18th season.last_img read more

NOFA winter conference to focus on resiliency, collaboration

first_imgThe challenges of 2011, from barn fires to epic floods, revealed much about the strengths and vulnerabilities of Vermont’s farms. It also presented a lot of questions ‘ namely, what’s the best way to create a stronger, more resilient food system? How can farms plan for the increasingly severe weather that we are likely to see? How do home gardens and homesteads fit in? What is the role of consumers and communities as farmers take risks and try new ideas?These are some of the questions that will be tackled at the 30th annual Winter Conference put on by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) this February. As the largest agricultural gathering in Vermont, the Winter Conference has long been a key opportunity for farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, and localvores to increase their skills and knowledge.Since moving to the University of Vermont in 2010, the Winter Conference has grown to include more than 65 workshops over two days, plus keynotes, social gatherings, an exhibitors’ fair, and a robust Children’s Conference.The 30th annual NOFA-VT Winter Conference will be held February 10-12, 2012 at the University of Vermont in Burlington, VT. This year’s keynotes will be local vegetable and fruit extension expert Vern Grubinger, and organic gardening mentor and author Wendy Johnson from Green Gulch Farm in Muir Beach, CA.For more information, including sponsorship details, please visit www.nofavt.org(link is external). About NOFA Vermont: NOFA Vermont is member-based organization working to grow local farms, healthy food, and strong communities in Vermont.

first_imgSpain’s Iberdrola completes largest solar project in Europe FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:Spanish renewable power giant Iberdrola has completed work on what it claims is the largest solar project ever built in Europe.The 500-megawatt Núñez de Balboa facility is now undergoing testing with Spanish grid operator Red Eléctrica de España (REE) and is expected to be in full commercial operation this quarter.Europe’s previous largest project was the 300-megawatt Cestas, built by Neoen in the south of France. But the latest record might not stand for long with Iberdrola planning the 590-megawatt Francisco Pizarro project in Spain. Completion is expected in 2022.Iberdrola, among the world’s largest wind generators, has a series of power-purchase agreements (PPAs) in place for Núñez de Balboa. These include a 10-year deal with Kutxabank to power its operations. Telecommunications firm Euskaltel and the Uvesco supermarket chain are also signed up.Iberdrola is planning to install 3,000 megawatts of solar capacity in Spain by 2022 and a total of 10 gigawatts of renewables by 2030. The company is active in a variety of renewable markets around the world, including the U.S., where it is among the country’s largest wind operators through its Avangrid subsidiary.Total solar installations in Europe doubled in 2019 compared to the previous year, with further growth anticipated, according to research by SolarPower Europe. In the trade group’s most optimistic scenario, 2019’s tally of 16.7 gigawatts could double to 35 gigawatts in 2022.[John Parnell]More: Iberdrola completes Europe’s largest solar plant (and yes, it’s subsidy-free)last_img read more

New FDA job to focus on food safety strategy

first_img Von Eschenbach commented that Acheson’s experience and scientific expertise will help the FDA keep pace with the “rapid transformation of the food safety system due to advances in production technology, rapid methods of distribution, and the globalization of food sources.” In his new job, Acheson will work with the FDA product centers and its Office of Regulatory Affairs to coordinate the agency’s food safety and defense assignments and commitments, officials said. May 1 FDA news releasehttp://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2007/NEW01622.html Von Eschenbach said Acheson will advise him on “strategic and substantive food safety and food defense matters,” an FDA news release states. One of Acheson’s first jobs will be to develop an “agency-wide, visionary strategy for food safety and defense.” In a comment he qualified as highly speculative, Hedberg added, “Dr. Acheson is certainly developing the credentials of someone who might be chosen to lead such an agency.” Craig Hedberg, a foodborne disease expert at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Minneapolis, said the FDA action suggests that the agency is focusing more attention on food protection. David Acheson, MD, will be assigned to the new job, said FDA Commissioner Andrew C. von Eschenbach. Acheson is chief medical officer and director of the Office of Food Defense, Communication and Emergency Response at the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). At CFSAN, Acheson has had the lead role in emergency response and in communication with industry, states, and consumers. Acheson will assume his new position immediately. He will report to Dr. Murray Lumpkin, deputy commissioner for international and special programs, who reports to von Eschenbach, according to FDA officials.center_img May 1, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today announced the creation of a new assistant commissioner position to provide guidance on food safety and defense strategies. In 2006, Acheson often served as a spokesman for the FDA during the investigation of a widespread Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak related to bagged fresh spinach and similar outbreaks linked to lettuce served by taco restaurant chains. Faye Feldstein, who has been Acheson’s deputy director at CFSAN, will now serve as acting director of the CFSAN Office of Food Defense, according to an FDA spokesman. “The strategy will identify and characterize changes in the global food safety and defense system, and identify current and future challenges and opportunities,” the FDA said. “It will also name potential barriers, gaps, and most critical needs in a food safety and defense system. The strategy will serve as the framework in helping the agency prioritize and address food safety and defense challenges.” “It seems to be elevating the importance of food protection (both food safety and food defense) within the FDA,” he told CIDRAP News by e-mail. “By pulling this position out of CFSAN and putting it up at an assistant commissioner level, it establishes it as a priority concern of the commissioner.” The move also establishes Acheson as “a key national leader for food protection,” he added. See also: Hedberg, who is an associate professor of environmental and occupational health, also commented, “I think this is certainly a response to the recent [foodborne disease] outbreaks and the congressional attention they are getting. I think Dr. Acheson has done a good job in public appearances, and if talk continues to develop about the need for a single food safety agency, this move could lead to an administration attempt to coordinate food safety through FDA.” (The FDA shares food safety responsibilities with the US Department of Agriculture; the USDA generally regulates meat and poultry, and the FDA oversees other foods.)last_img read more

Board-expertise regulations force liquidation of Dutch pension fund

first_imgThe €125m pension fund of fashion chain Peek & Cloppenburg has decided to liquidate itself to join the €12bn industry-wide scheme for the Dutch retail sector, Detailhandel. Chairman Jos van Noort told IPE that demands from regulator De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) to increase the level of expertise among its trustees had also been a factor in its decision, adding that the pension fund felt the DNB’s demands could jeopardise its “continuity”.Currently, the Pensioenfonds Peek & Cloppenburg boasts a funding ratio of 120% – although Van Noort acknowledged this was partly due to savings on admin costs following its decision to merge.He added that any funding surplus at the P&C scheme at the time of the merger – scheduled for 1 January 2015 – would be added to the pension rights of “his” participants and pensioners. As of the end of August, Detailhandel reported a funding ratio of 119.6%. Van Noort said the P&C scheme had refrained from placing its pensions arrangements with an insurer largely due to the risk that “insurers can go bust”.This would hit younger participants in particular, according to the board.The chairman also said the consolidation had come at the request of the employer.The liquidation of the P&C scheme – and its subsequent merger with Detailhandel – is still subject to DNB approval, according to Van Noort, who also said arrangements still needed to be fleshed out with the industry-wide scheme.The Pensioenfonds Peek & Cloppenburg has approximately 3,000 participants, of which 600 are active. In January, it granted its participants an 0.5% indexation.It increased the annual pensions accrual from 1.47% to 1.62% last year.last_img read more

ABS, Partners to Introduce Space Technology to LNG Shipping

first_imgClassification society ABS, OceanFinance and Scorpius Space Launch Company (SSLC) are joining forces to adapt composite technologies developed for the space industry to LNG shipping.Under the SPACE TECH4SEA project, which is attracting more than EUR 1 million grant funding from the European Commission, the parties aim to apply composite technology, which is lighter and more cost-effective, as a competitive alternative in LNG as marine fuel designs, principally for short sea shipping.“Existing LNG tank technology can make adoption of the fuel prohibitively expensive. This composite technology has proven itself in other industries; we are committed to learning how to safely apply those lessons to benefit the maritime industries,” said Patrick Janssens, ABS Vice President for Global Gas Solutions.The three-year development project will adapt SSLC’S PRESSURMAXX composite tanks for marine applications based on its current use in a range of industries and more than 200 clients including NASA. The joint team’s goal is creating tanks which will attract new buildings and LNG as a marine fuel retrofits by cutting costs, reducing weight and increasing vessels’ cargo capacity.The technology, which offers weight savings up to 80 percent over existing equivalent LNG tank designs and is not affected by corrosion, also introduces space technology safety standards to marine operations.While the tanks are currently made by hand, the project aims to adopt a highly automated production line to ensure a competitive pricing level, the companies informed.last_img read more

Tainted IV fluid ‘kills 13 pregnant women’ in India

first_img Sharing is caring! 30 Views   no discussions Share BBC News Tweet Tens of thousands of women die in India annually during pregnancyHealth authorities in India’s Rajasthan state are investigating allegations that 13 pregnant women died after they were given infected intravenous (IV) fluids at a government hospital.All the deaths were reported in Jodhpur city over the past 10 days.Laboratory tests had confirmed that IV fluids supplied by a local company were “tainted”, officials said.A police case has been registered and an investigation has begun, they said.“The women died after severe haemorrhaging and we believe the most likely cause might be an infection after they were administered tainted IV fluids,” Umaid Hospital administrator Narendra told the BBC.“During lab tests, we found three batches of glucose which were tainted. We have lodged a complaint with the police and strict action will be taken against the manufacturers,” he said.India accounts for the highest number of maternal deaths in the world with tens of thousands of women dying every year due to pregnancy-related problems.Campaigners say most of the deaths are needless and could easily be prevented if more care and attention was paid to their treatment.

Uzoho: Messi Made My Best Day In Football

first_img Uzoho’s inclusion in Nigeria’s squad to the football fiesta was a massive surprise to many. The young shot-stopper was part of the victorious Nigeria squad at the 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, albeit without playing a single minute at the tournament. But Uzoho moved to Deportivo La Coruna from Qatar’s Aspire Academy in January 2017 and, later that year, became the youngest foreign goalkeeper to ever play in La Liga, marking his memorable Deportivo debut with a clean sheet. His form in Spain caught the attention of Gernot Rohr, who had been looking for solutions to the Super Eagles’ goalkeeping problems caused by the premature retirement of Carl Ikeme. Then only 19, Uzoho made his Super Eagles debut against Argentina in a November 2017 friendly, a game Messi missed, and Nigerian won by a 4-2 scoreline. Despite his relative inexperience, Uzoho was elevated as the first-choice keeper ahead of the experienced duo of Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, heading to the World Cup.Advertisement Loading… He was in goal when Rohr’s men lost to Croatia, defeated Iceland, and succumbed to a late 2-1 loss to Argentina, with Messi netting a fine opener. Despite the Super Eagles losing that encounter, Uzoho feels privileged sharing the same pitch with the six-time Ballon d’Or winner. “Playing at the World Cup for the first time as a first choice goalkeeper came as a grace to me,” the Omonia Nicosia keeper said, as quoted by the media. read also:Uzoho: Why I married at 20 “In fact, the day Nigeria played against Argentina was my best day in the game because I stood on the same field with Messi and Higuain, players I respect a lot. “I had to control my excitement as a professional keeper to give my best in the game.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Francis Uzoho has picked the Super Eagles last group match against Messi’s Argentina at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as the best day of his football career.

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. The Indian U-23 national team ended its AFC U-23 Championship qualifying campaign with a 2-0 loss.Daler Yodgorov’s 30th-minute strike and Solehov’s 85th-minute goal.India tried to keep Tajikistan on the defence and score the equaliser but could not find the decisive goal. After a nervy start, the Indian team found themselves some bright spots and in the 27th minute, Rahim Ali found Komal Thatal inside the box. With defenders closing in, Komal could only launch the ball over the woodwork in an attempt to give India the lead. India’s attacking momentum was short-lived as Tajikistan took the lead in the 30th minute with Daler finding the back of the India net from inside the box.Attempting to find the equalizer before half-time, Rahim Ali went on a run down the middle and found Anirudh Thapa, whose shot was blocked by the Tajik defence line. India’s quest for the equaliser kept them on their toes and soon after the second half restarted, India cajoled an opportunity in the 48th minute. Rahim Ali brought the ball down inside the box and passed it to an onrushing Abdul Sahal, who failed to hit the target from outside the box.Restricting the opponents in the half for much of the second half, India had a chance in the 60th minute and once again it fell to Sarthak Golui, who headed wide a Vinit Rai free-kick. India tried to keep Tajikistan on the defence and score the equaliser but could not find the decisive goal. Tajikistan held on to their slender lead and committed bodies in defence. New Delhi: The Indian U-23 national team ended its AFC U-23 Championship qualifying campaign with a 2-0 loss to Tajikistan in its second match of the group stage here Sunday. Daler Yodgorov’s 30th-minute strike and Solehov’s 85th-minute goal proved to be the difference between the two sides as India succumbed to their second defeat of the qualifying campaign, ending without a point out of a maximum six. The opponents had mounted a barrage of attacks in the early minutes of the match, trying to unsettle the Indian defence but some astute goalkeeping by Dheeraj Singh kept them at bay. In the 10th minute, the custodian made a fine save to deny the opponents an early breakthrough at the Pakhtakor Stadium. India could have surged ahead into a lead in the 12th minute but Sarthak Golub’s header off a Komal Thatal free-kick failed to find the net, leaving the Tajik goalkeeper to scramble to clear his lines; courtesy of an onrushing Anwar Ali in pursuit of the rebound.last_img read more

Volleyball lessons for men’s basketball

first_imgThe USC men’s basketball team is struggling. The USC men’s volleyball team is not.Yes, the top-ranked men’s volleyball team lost its first game of what was a perfect season over the weekend, a five-set heartbreaker to Pepperdine. But the mild setback didn’t shake the college volleyball world.The Trojans are still the No. 1 team in the land.The USC men’s basketball team had an equally disappointing and even more costly weekend. USC coach Kevin O’Neill’s boys split two home games, sputtering out badly Saturday in an ugly loss to Oregon. The Trojans were already a long shot to make the Big Dance. Now, they’d be lucky to make the National Invitational Tournament.When you look at the two programs, it’s like looking at two houses in disparate conditions. One, nearly pristine, has been meticulously improved year after year and is the envy of the neighborhood.The other house was bought after a foreclosure. Although it’s not rundown, the roof is leaking. And as soon as you plug one hole, another keeps popping up.I don’t think I have to tell you which house represents which program.The two teams are on different tracks. The volleyball team is headed straight to the top, national championship or bust. The basketball team is just trying to move in a positive direction, to finish out an up-and-down season on a high note.Volleyball and basketball aren’t so different after all. Both are games made up of runs. Both rely on a certain rhythm and flow. Spacing is crucial, teamwork essential. Point is, a lesson from one is easily transferable to the other.So what cues can the men’s basketball team take from the success of senior opposite hitter Murphy Troy and the men’s volleyball team? If there’s one word, it’s consistency.I was the volleyball beat writer two years ago. After moving on to other sports, I popped my head into volleyball practice last week, and it was as if I were in a time warp.Very little had changed. The atmosphere was more intense, but the faces were practically the same.Troy is still the power hitter on the outside. Senior setter Riley McKibbin still quarterbacks the offense. Senior middle blocker Austin Zahn is still a presence at the net. Senior outside Tri Bourne is still making teams pay when they forget about him on the other side.Those four seniors form the core of the team that has been steadily building since 2007. They were USC coach Bill Ferguson’s golden recruiting class and they are living up to expectations. They came in together as freshmen and the only direction to go was up. They were a few points away from winning the national title in 2009 and still have one last crack at it.Compare that with O’Neill’s basketball squad. A very capable coach, O’Neill came in two years ago after Tim Floyd’s abrupt resignation and an exodus of recruits that would have impressed Moses. The program was nearing disarray, and O’Neill helped to stabilize it.But consistency continues to elude the Trojans on the basketball court. They have nothing that approaches the consistency of the volleyball team.Junior forward Nikola Vucevic is really the only player remaining who had any impact in the Tim Floyd days. Senior forward Alex Stepheson had to sit out that year because he transferred in and senior guard Donte Smith had not discovered his jump shot yet.Meanwhile, new players like freshmen guard Maurice Jones and forward Garrett Jackson were thrown into the mix early and are still struggling to find their way.So the basketball team takes two steps backward as soon as it takes one step forward, while the volleyball team steadily climbs.Players on both teams work equally hard. Both coaching staffs are just as dedicated. But Ferguson’s starters are four seniors and two juniors, all of whom have been at USC their entire college careers, learning the offense, buying into the system.Meanwhile, O’Neill must go with what he has, which is a group of guys who, with the exception of a few, haven’t logged a whole lot of games together.Any rebuilding program struggles with these issues. This is part of the process. Progress is often slow. Fans get impatient and players get frustrated.The only way to have lasting success is to stay the course. It is a valuable lesson the basketball team would be wise to heed.“Middle Ground” runs Tuesdays.

Trojans look to stay disciplined on road

first_imgFollow Aubrey on Twitter @aubreykragen USC faces a new challenge this week as it travels to Corvallis, Ore. to take on Oregon State in its third Friday night game since 1999.Throwing it out there · Redshirt sophomore quarterback Cody Kessler will have to work with a limited group of options, as many of his top tight ends and receivers are not expected to play against Oregon State. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe Beavers (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) just dropped out of the top 25 after a 20-12 loss to then-No. 6 Stanford, but boast the No. 1 passing offense in the country behind junior quarterback Sean Mannion.Quarterback comparisonRedshirt sophomore quarterback Cody Kessler is coming off one of his best performances of the year with 230 yards, one touchdown and no turnovers against Utah. But Kessler has yet to put up numbers anywhere close to Mannion’s.Mannion leads the nation with 407.9 yards per game, with 30 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions.Conditions in CorvallisMuch has been made of the hostile atmosphere of Oregon State’s Reser Stadium. Last time USC traveled to Corvallis in what ended up being the most recent of three straight losses at Oregon State, the Trojans fell 36-7 after backup Mitch Mustain replaced an injured Matt Barkley.Though the players insist they’re not focusing on the recent record against the Beavers, the team is doing everything it can to prepare for the atmosphere, especially considering the result of its last away game: a 14-10 loss at Notre Dame.“We’re gonna address some of the mistakes on the road against Notre Dame,” interim head coach Ed Orgeron said. “Maybe the crowd affected us. Maybe it didn’t. But I’m gonna do a better job as head coach of simulating some of that in practice.”Orgeron was true to his word, as chainsaw noises rung from the speakers at Monday’s practice, mimicking Oregon State’s common celebratory sound.Some of the Trojans who have never traveled to Corvallis before have been greatly anticipating this game.“I’ve heard a lot of things [about playing at Reser Stadium]: Loud. Crazy,” redshirt junior tight end Xavier Grimble said. “But that’s what I came to college football to do is play in those type of environments … That’s what makes the game fun for me.”Stepping upAgainst Utah, several Trojans were forced to replace the bevy of injured first-team players.Junior defensive end J.R. Tavai filled in admirably for the injured senior linebacker Morgan Breslin, leading the team with six tackles and two sacks. Tavai will need to step up again this Friday, as Orgeron announced at Monday’s practice that Breslin would be out again this week with a hip injury.Also out for the Trojans this Friday are redshirt junior cornerback Anthony Brown and redshirt junior tight end Randall Telfer.Injuries at the tight end and wide receiver positions have allowed a number of new Trojans to make catches in the past few weeks.Against the Utes, redshirt senior wide receiver De’Von Flournoy hauled in a 31-yard pass, the longest of his career. Entering his season, Flournoy only had one catch as a Trojan, so he has greatly appreciated his recent success.“It’s the greatest feeling in the world,” Flournoy said. “You have your parents in the stands and you actually get on the field and make plays for your team. It’s a great feeling.”With both Grimble and Telfer out against Utah, sophomore tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick and redshirt junior Chris Willson, who switched from quarterback to tight end, were forced to make some big plays. Though Orgeron listed Grimble as questionable, Grimble said he expects to play on Friday. Cope-Fitzpatrick was also injured against Utah and is questionable for the Oregon State game, but Grimble promised the tight ends will not disappoint.“We have one big tight end family and we’ve got a lot of talented guys in the room,” Grimble said.Other players Orgeron listed as questionable include freshman safety Su’a Cravens (groin), redshirt senior offensive lineman Kevin Graf (ankle) and junior wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee).last_img read more

Emmanuel Emenike:  Searching for  Rediscovery in Greece

first_imgHowever, Emenike last week joined Greek champions, Olympiakos from Fenerbahce, after signing a two-year deal and a fee said to be about $2.8 million. After struggling with injuries and a lack of first-team football last season, Olympiakos provides him with a platform that includes the European Champions League next season.“I know there are big expectations from the fans and club, but I am ready. I’ve joined the most successful club in Greek football and I want to give my best for the team,” the 30-year-old told BBC Sport.The former Super Eagles striker is the sixth Nigerian player to sign for Olympiakos of Greece, following in the footsteps of Rashidi Yekini, James Obiorah, Haruna Babangida, Michael Olaitan and Brown Ideye.Between the summer of 2009 and 2012, the forward averaged over 14 league goals per season with Karabukspor and Spartak. During the 2013-14 campaign, he managed 12 goals in 28 league outings for Fener, but in 2014, despite making only one league outing less, he contributed only four goals.After a memorable display against Bosnia-Herzegovina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where he drove down the left flank, leaving defenders in his wake before setting up Osaze Odemwingie’s pivotal winner, Emenike went on 15 international matches without a goal. Late coach Stephen Keshi had to drop Emenike, who previously would have been the first name on the list.The question on the lips of observers is whether Emenike’s move to Greece could really revive his career.Former Nigerian international, Waidi Akani, sees a lot of sense in Emenike’s move to Olympiakos.In a chat with THISDAY on telephone, Akani said, “I think he was just trying to get a break from Fenerbahce. Once a player is not wanted in a club and he has a high price tag on him there is always the need to move and that is what I think he did by moving to Greece. He has to go somewhere for a break and after a year or two, if his game improves, he can always stage a comeback to the main stream of European football.“Emenike can still stage a comeback to the national team. There are lots of examples of players that had made some move to revive their career and still got national team calls. A good example is Asamah Gyan, who is still a dependable player for the Black Stars of Ghana. It all depends on the player’s current form and the number of minutes he gets to play. It’s better for him to have regular playing time at Olympiakos than being a bench warmer at Fenerbahce. It’s a right move for him and from there he can re-lunch himself and his career.”Respected Turkish journalist, Kadir Onur Dinker of Milliyet, indeed advised the Greek champions to employ a psychologist who will closely monitor Emenike due to his frequent conflicts with teammates, coaches and fans.”He also faced some problems with the Nigerian Federation, so he had to withdraw from the national team though he is young.“In general, I can say that he is a very sensitive character that is psychologically affected. For me, Olympiakos should hire a psychologist to watch him in order to be focused. If he has good relationships with his teammates and fans, he can be the best player in the Greek league. Personally I like his dynamic attacking style, like Drogba and I hope he will succeed in Olympiakos,” Kadir told gazzetta.gr.Emenike made 93 appearances in all competitions during his time at Fenerbahce scoring 25 goals.He came to limelight when he was invited to the national team for a friendly game against Sierra Leone. Thereafter, he was called up to Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and scored in the opening match against Burkina Faso in a 1–1 draw. He also scored the first goal in the quarter final match between Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire which Nigeria won 2–1. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram His four goals at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations was crucial to Nigeria’s winning the biennial competition for the third time. As a result, some observers thought a striker that would fill the vacuum left by Super Eagles all-time highest goal scorer, Rashidi Yekini, had finally arrived. It was not to be, as Emmanuel Emenike’s career nosedived tremendously. His involvement in many controversies with his various clubs did not help matters. In 2015, he announced his retirement from the national team after just five years stint. Last week, Turkish side, Olympiakos announced the signing of Emenike. Kunle Adewale asks if his move to Greece could help revive his dwindling careercenter_img Emmanuel Emenike’s first “missionary journey to Turkey” with Fenerbahce was more  memorable for its controversies than anything of value. He was accused of match-fixing, though later released without charge. In his second stint with the Turkish side, he was very unpopular with the club’s supporters largely due to his poor performance, scoring only four goals in 27 appearances. Things came to a head that he once stormed off the field after he was abused by his own fans, culminating in a move to UAE side, Al Ain on loan.last_img read more

Itthiphol re-elected windsurfing association president

first_imgPattaya Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome has been re-elected president of the Windsurfing Association of Thailand citing a pledge to have Thais compete in every future Olympics.The mayor said the goal of the association should be to expand the sport and improve the local sailors’ skills so that they qualify for every Summer Games.Pattaya Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome has been re-elected as President of Windsurfing Sport Association of Thailand.Pattaya School No. 7 is the group’s current base for training youths and Itthiphol said more youngsters are flocking to the sport than ever before.To help maintain momentum, he has appointed Thai national champion Ek Boonsawad to the association’s technical committee. Windsurfing was introduced to Thailand around 1972 through both the manufacturing of surfing equipment for export and also by tourists looking to enjoy the warm sailing waters of the Gulf.Worapan Chotikapanich partnered with his German friends to bring samples of windsurfing equipment to Thailand to later be developed and produced for export worldwide.The sport was also introduced by a tourist who came to Pattaya in the early 1970’s and became friends with Bamrung Ruamsap, a Pattaya local. Bamrung was believed to be the first Thai to try windsurfing and became the first windsurfing representative for the country. He then co-founded the Windsurfing Association of Thailand in the 1972 with Adm. Uman Mongkolnavin as the first president.last_img read more

Region 2 Govt dental clinics out of needles

first_img…residents complain of being turned awayResidents in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) are being turned away from medical facilities which offer dental care because of a lack of dental needles to do extractions.This newspaper was told on Friday that dozens of persons, including those who travelled from interior and riverine locations to obtain much-needed tooth extractions at health facilities along the Essequibo Coast, are now being forced to either fork out cash to visit private facilities or endure pain until the shortage is rectified.However, some residents, who were unable to get their extractions done on Friday, told Guyana Times that although they were told by medical staff that the facilities do not have the necessary needles and that they would have to return, the patients were not advised as to how soon the medical supplies would arrive or given a date when they should return.“They just said that last week they did not have and the dental place in Charity village gave them 20 needles but that those needles used up already. We were told that we had to come back another time but they could not tell us when to come back. They did not even say around when they expect more needles,” a pensioner told this publication on Friday.Meanwhile, another resident of Anna Regina told this newspaper that his wife visited a health facility where she had been referred to have an extraction. This was after she was diagnosed with hypertension and other ailments and was advised by a doctor that she also needed to do an extraction.“They tell her that the tooth problems compounding things and sent her to get it pulled out. She is sickly and had to be there sitting outside waiting all the time and when she reached the front they tell her that they cannot do any extraction because they ran out of needles. She had to come back home in pain after spending long hours there and when I asked her when she had to go back she said they never tell she when to check back,” the man complained.As a result of this situation in Region Two, several residents are now concerned that their only option would be to seek private institutions. However, many are complaining that they cannot afford to pay the prices that privately-owned dental offices charge.A source from that region’s Regional Office told this publication that certain medical supplies, such as the needles necessary for tooth extractions, are usually provided by the Dental School in Georgetown and not by regional authorities.“That’s where the needles and so come from for our dental clinics or departments here in Essequibo. It is not something that the region itself sources to provide for those dental departments. However, we do try to assist how we can when something happens and we will try to see how we can have this issue taken care of also,” the source explained.Efforts to contact the Regional Health Officer and other regional authorities on Friday about the matter proved futile.In May, Region Two was plagued by a similar issue when checks found that all of the Government dental clinics in that region hadn’t any dental needles for an almost three-week timeframe.Patients had been turned away from all Government dental clinics in the region due to the lack of dental needles. Those affected by teeth-related problems, including senior citizens and children, had been left to bear the severe pain without any other medical aid, not even a pain killer, one senior citizen had stated at that time.last_img read more

Area gains more clout within COG

“It helps to have them on our side of the process,” Olivas said, noting the success that local cities had when they banded together to support funding for upgrades to the 605/10 freeway interchange. “We hope this encourages the county to use more of its resources to support the San Gabriel Valley.” Tony Bell, a spokesman for Antonovich, said the idea behind the agreement is to help all Valley residents, whether they live in cities or in unincorporated county areas. “This is particularly important when it comes to tax dollars that are in jeopardy of being funneled to the city of Los Angeles because of the power base at L.A. City Hall,” Bell said. “The county’s participation will help the cities to compete from a position of strength for transportation resources, housing, public safety, water and many other vital services.” If approved, the move would make COG a more “holistic organization,” said Nicholas Conway, the group’s executive director. “This will help to ensure our Valley’s fair share of funding,” Conway said. “There is still more transportation funding coming, as well as money for water cleanup and housing,” Conway said, referring to the Proposition 1A through 1E package approved by state voters last November. “These measures all passed in the San Gabriel Valley, but the process to allocate those funds has yet to be determined. “Our goal in the next year is to make sure those processes are determined in a way that the Valley receives its fair share,” he added. Olivas said he hoped that all member cities would vote on the county’s membership in time to seat the supervisors with full voting rights by the April or May COG Governing Board meeting. The agreement is likely to receive approval from the majority of COG’s member cities. Thirteen members voted in favor of the agreement at the February board meeting, with only Glendora and South Pasadena raising concerns about the wording of the measure. [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 The COG’s governing board approved the agreement adding the supervisors as full-fledged members last month. The issue now goes to each of COG’s member cities. A simple majority is needed to finalize the agreement. Baldwin Park Councilman David Olivas, who is also COG secretary, supports the move. “We have the largest unincorporated area in the county, and they should have a voice in what happens in the COG,” said Olivas, adding the agreement still has to be approved by his council. He said county representation should also have benefits for the Valley’s incorporated cities. The San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments could soon get some influential new members: three Los Angeles County supervisors. Local Supervisors Don Knabe, Gloria Molina and Michael Antonovich already serve as non-voting members on the council, an inter-governmental lobbying group comprised of representatives from 31 cities throughout the Valley. Officials believe that making supervisors full-fledged members of COG will will raise the group’s profile and lobbying clout, as well as provide representation for the Valley’s 380,000 unincorporated county residents. The Valley is home to a total 4 million county residents overall, according to Antonovich’s office. Other sources put that total at roughly half that figure. “Membership in the Council of Governments is vital to ensure the unincorporated communities of the San Gabriel Valley are provided with an effective voice in regional public policy,” said Antonovich in a statement following the L.A. County Board of Supervisor’s unanimous vote to join COG on Tuesday. read more

Mauricio Pochettino warns off Premier League rivals interested in star players

first_imgMauricio Pochettino declared it was ‘job done’ after Tottenham reached the knock-out stages of the Europa League.The Tottenham manager sprang a surprise by picking England striker Harry Kane in a strong starting line-up against Group J minnows Qarabag in Baku, despite facing Chelsea less than 72 hours later.But the move paid off as Kane nodded in the winner to ensure Tottenham’s longest-ever journey for a competitive fixture – a 5,000-mile round trip to the capital of Azerbaijan – proved worthwhile as they made the last 32 with a match to spare.“We are through to the next round and this was our objective,” said Pochettino.“The objective is gone now.“We will make sure we will arrive in a good condition to play Chelsea. We have a strong squad and a strong mentality, with the maturity.“It is true we arrive maybe not in the best condition to compete in the right way but respect to our medical staff for what they do, they will work during the flight and tomorrow we have a day off.“On Saturday we will assess.”It was shaping up to be a frustrating evening for Spurs, with both Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli denied by the woodwork.On the hour mark, Son unleashed a cracker from the edge of the box which clattered off the crossbar and 10 minutes later Alli’s far-post volley came back off the foot of the post.But moments later Kane made the breakthrough, after Son flicked on Christian Eriksen’s corner, getting the final touch to nod the ball over the line.With nine goals in his last six games, Kane’s stunning form has led to speculation about his future in January – not least with Sunday’s opponents having been linked with a move.But Pochettino added: “I am happy that a big club want our players – this is because they show they are a top player with top performances. It is good when they are linked.“But Harry, like Hugo Lloris, wants to stay here. He is one of the best players and he is very happy. He wants to grow up with us and try the next few years to try for the top four and win titles with Tottenham. This is his challenge.” Mauricio Pochettino 1last_img read more

Tottenham boss Pochettino on facing ‘one of the best teams in Europe’

first_img Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his admiration for opposite number Thomas Tuchel Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has classed Borussia Dortmund as one of the best teams on the continent ahead of their Europa League last-16 clash on Thursday.Spurs have never played the German side in a competitive match but can expect a fiendish test at the Westfalenstadion, against a team flushed with big-name stars.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has netted 29 goals in 33 games this season while the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Marco Reus and Mats Hummels have all been linked with the continent’s most glamorous clubs. Gundogan was pictured on Thursday meeting Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain in Amsterdam.Dortmund sit second in the Bundesliga, having scored 59 goals in 25 games, and Thomas Tuchel’s men are yet to lose a single league match at home this season.The first leg in Germany – live on talkSPORT from 6.00pm – will be Pochettino’s 100th game in charge at Tottenham and the Argentinian admits his youthful side are in for a thorough examination.“Borussia Dortmund have very good players, a very good team, a great coach – Thomas is fantastic and he has showed that from the beginning of the season,” Pochettino said.“I like the way they play but I think that it’s a good challenge for us. I think we play against one of the best teams in Europe.“The strikers they have – Aubameyang, (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan, Gundogan in midfield, Hummels – they’re internationals and big players. They can stay here or go to Real Madrid or Barcelona.“I think that Dortmund have a very good team and it’s a very good challenge for us. We’re excited to play in Borussia, an unbelievable stadium and a great atmosphere, and I think all is positive.”Pochettino must again balance a desire to progress in Europe’s second-tier tournament with Tottenham’s domestic ambitions, where they are gunning to win their first league title since 1961.Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier have all been left at home, with Alli suspended, Rose nursing a calf problem and Dier handed a rest ahead of Sunday’s game at Aston Villa.Pochettino said: “We are in a period that is tough for the players. We need to refresh the team. We need to rotate.“Ever since the start of the season I’ve said that the important thing is to have a squad.”Tottenham will also be desperate to get back to winning ways after failing to beat 10-man Arsenal last weekend, drawing 2-2 three days after losing at West Ham.And Pochettino is eager to dispel any fears of fatigue as his players enter a crunch period in the campaign.“It’s a good thing to be disappointed after the game against Arsenal,” Pochettino said.“A few years ago after a draw against Arsenal in a big derby people were happy. Now when you can only draw with Arsenal there is disappointment.“It’s a good thing and changes the mentality inside the club and outside too. Today we can show a strong mentality. This is very important for me.“We need time but I am very happy in the way that we have developed our mentality after 21 months. We are much stronger than before.” 1last_img read more

West Ham to make move for ex-Manchester City striker

first_img Dzeko has only scored seven goals in 25 games this season 1 West Ham are lining up an ambitious move for ex-Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, according to reports in Italy.The Hammers are expected to strengthen their forward line this summer and Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed that £20m-rated Dzeko is on their radar.The 30-year-old left England for Roma in August but has had a mixed first season in Serie A, scoring just seven goals in 25 appearances so far.And it has been reported that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, who is a big fan of the Bosnian striker, reckons he could tempt him to east London.Bilic’s side could yet secure a place in next season’s Champions League and, with their move to the Olympic Stadium set for this summer, West Ham has become a very attractive proposition.And that could be enough for Dzeko to draw a line under his time in Italy and have another crack at English football following his five-year spell at City.last_img read more

DR MCKENNA CUP: MAC NIALLAIS OUTSTANDING AS SUPER DONEGAL GIVE STUDENTS A LESSON

first_imgDonegal powered their way to a comfortable victory over the students of Queen’s University Belfast as Rory Gallagher earned his first competitive win as Donegal manager. Odhran Mac Niallais produced a stunning performance kicking six points against Queen’s University Belfast in Donegal’s Dr McKenna Cup clash this afternoon.Donegal named an experimental side against Derry last week and were defeated comfortably.However, while Gallagher opted to give a host of new faces another opportunity to impress he did select a number of experienced players from last season. Paddy McGrath, Frank McGlynn, Christy Toye and Odhran Mac Niallais all came in for their first appearances of 2015 and there experience was telling.Odhran Mac Niallais in particular was outstanding and he kicked six points before he was withdrawn late on in the second-half.Mac Niallais scored three points from play, one 45, and two placed frees.However, he was heavily involved throughout the game and delivered an outstanding man-of-the-match performance. Donegal raced into a 2-7 to 1-3 half-time lead, thanks to goals from Marty O’Reilly and Eamon Ward.Christy Toye, Eunan Doherty, Daniel McLaughlin, Dermot Molloy, Ciaran McGinley, Hugh McFadden and Mac Niallais (2) completed the scoring for Donegal in the second-half.In a game played in difficult blustery conditions, Donegal were hugely impressive and controlled the game from start to finish.Donegal now face Fermanagh on Wednesday night and a victory in that match would be enough to see Donegal advance to the knock-out stages of the Dr McKenna Cup.Dr McKenna Cup – Final score: Donegal 2-16 Queen’s University Belfast 1-08 DR MCKENNA CUP: MAC NIALLAIS OUTSTANDING AS SUPER DONEGAL GIVE STUDENTS A LESSON was last modified: January 11th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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)Tags:donegalDr McKenna CupGAAnewsOdhran MacNiallaisQUBRory Gallagherlast_img read more

Easter Essay

first_imgAccompanied by a picture of a cross and a sunset, captioned “The Sun and the Son,” a somber-looking Brian Walden wrote an essay in the BBC News expressing his reaction to Astronomer Royal Sir Martin Rees’ “chilling” comment that “It will not be humans who witness the demise of the Sun six billion years hence; it will be entities as different from us as we are from bacteria.”  Rees stated that the idea of evolution is well-known, but that the “vast potential for further evolution isn’t yet part of our common culture.”    Walden delved into the implications of this assumed “scientific” view of our future for morality, ethics, and religion with a note of nostalgia for his simple childhood faith: “This is Easter and I can’t help contrasting the Christian promise of my youth with what science expects to happen.”This essay had better make every Christian pastor and believer wake up and ponder the deadly effect of evolutionary thinking.  Mr. Walden is caught in a tension between what his conscience says and what the Darwin Party soothsayers are telling him.  He sees the enormous complexity of an unborn baby revealed by the latest sonograms, and he fears the future of bioethics with no foundation for ethics, but he accepts at face value what Rees says about evolution and the future of the sun billions of years from now.  Like a dumb sheep, he fails to question the glittering generalities pronounced by the Babbleonians on the left, the liberals who drove the wedge between science and religion as far back as the 18th century.  While realizing that any kind of consensus between the Christians and the liberals would be an alloy of iron and clay, he yet hungers for some kind of dialogue between them at least.    This is pathetic.  Walden is badly uninformed, because he grants to secular science an authority and credibility it doesn’t have.  If he would stop naively trusting what scientific sleuthsayers like Rees say the sun is going to do in six billion years, he could begin to regain some confidence in the Son who said, “He who believes in Me has everlasting life.”  Somebody give Walden a rope to climb out of the dark cave of (misnamed) Enlightenment thinking.  Maybe a copy of The Privileged Planet would help, and a bookmark to Creation-Evolution Headlines.    England made a mistake by welding the church to the government.  Enlightenment liberals rightly despised the corruption that resulted, but went too far in asserting autonomy in matters of science and ethics.  It’s time for England to get rid of its useless state church, and experience a revival from the ground up: from individual believers no longer intimidated by the wormtongues of liberal philosophers (who know neither the past nor future of our sun).  It’s time for them to understand the strength of the Biblical foundation for science and morality.  Armed with new confidence in the unchanging Word of God and its ability to stimulate true science as well as provide solid ground for ethics, individuals must overthrow the Darwinian usurpers before their vile ethics bear any more poisoned fruit.    Suns and babies do not come from nothing.  Like everything in nature, they have the fingerprint of design: not just impersonal design, but the design of an all-wise, all-powerful, personal Creator.  Walden’s predicament comes from having his authorities inverted.  The sun is subservient to the Son, not the other way around.  There may be nothing new under the sun, but if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed (John 8:36).(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Africa has huge growth potential for e-commerce

first_imgThe growth of Africa’s digital market place is likel better than the mature markets of the developed world, making Africa desirable to companies looking to grow. (Image credit: Tim Reckman) Sulaiman PhilipThe future is here. It has taken 20 years for the active internet population to reach 2.9 billion; the next billion users will connect within a decade. For 40% of the world’s population, the web is at the heart of all commercial interactions.Understanding how people connect to their world helps business leaders and policy makers allocate resources and decide strategy. But the world – more so online – does not have one homogenous identity. Mastercard, along with the Fletcher School at Tufts, has been researching the growth of the digital economy since 2008. The Digital Evolution Index tracked the digital footprint of 50 countries and analysed the key drivers of and barriers to the countries’ evolution to a digital economy:–          Demand (consumer demographics, income and internet access)–          Supply (technology and infrastructure)–          Institutional environment (governmental policy)–          Innovation (environment for creating start-ups and the overall competitive landscape)South Africa ranked 33rd in the list of 50, the highest African country and second only to China in the Brics group of trade partners. Factors in South Africa’s favour, as identified in the index, included an 86% cellphone market saturation and the most developed telecommunications network in Africa, which is almost 100% digital. In terms of government regulations, plans to give broadband access to all citizens within the next five years helped to push the country’s score in the Break Out category higher. South Africa was also the fourth fastest growing digital economy behind China, Malaysia and Thailand.Ted Iacobuzio, the vice-president of global insights at Mastercard, explained that Africa’s greatest strength was that it had not followed the same path to a digital economy as other more established economies. “What is significant is that all four of the African countries measured (South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Egypt) share a common trait of moving at a high rate of speed towards digital evolution, demonstrating huge growth potential for e-commerce.”All the measured African countries – the other three are holding up the table – scored very low in comparison but they all have one thing in common – room for growth. Over the next 10 years there will be a billion new internet users, the majority of whom will be African. Africa, Iacobuzio explained, represented potential to businesses.Africa’s internet penetration stood at 16 percent (167 million people) in 2013, and is forecast to reach 50 percent (600 million people) by 2025, indicating that the online consumer market will quadruple over this time. The speed of digital growth in Africa points to the continent evolving a huge online market. Where established online users started off using the web to send mail and surf (maturing along with the digital space), users in the developing world are already e-consumers. They are used to interacting and transacting on their mobile devices; buying and selling goods online is the next logical step for this market.But what does this mean for businesses?Art Peck is the incoming chief executive of Gap Inc. The biggest challenge he will face is dealing with the collision of the digital experience with the shopping experience in one of the company’s 3 076 stores. He does not see the future as the death of bricks and mortar stores, but agrees that technology has redefined the whole customer experience. Technology, he explained to Buzzfeed News, “is really going to be the expression of the brand that most people engage with most significantly. How do you bring everything this device can bring into a store?”Understanding how his customers use the digital world is the biggest challenge facing Peck and other business leaders. It has changed the power dynamic in retail. “Visits to good malls are not down, but the number of store visits inside a mall are down, which says to me that people are planning their store visits as a function of their engagement with the brand.”Even in a mature economy like the US, businesses are still trying to figure out how to use the online space to sell. Peck understands that for consumers, the online experience is more democratic than visiting a store. Technology elevates the shopping experience; it’s the difference between visiting an outlet store and browsing the racks at a flagship big city store.Gap is a global brand and it is possible to dress in one of its labels from birth through to maturity. For a company like this, the Digital Evolution Index allows it to plan and devise ways to sell more to those customers by tailoring digital strategies to fit the digital footprint of each market.Not so long ago retailers measured traffic in terms of feet through the door. Things are changing, quickly. “The numbers are going in a way where, very quickly, the majority of traffic will be digital as opposed to people walking into our stores.”Companies will still struggle to understand the aspirations of a global audience but studies like the Digital Evolution Index does give them the ability to finesse the tools needed to speak directly to the audience.last_img read more

Sidedressing manure into corn continues to have promising results

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio State University Extension has conducted manure research on growing crops for several years in an effort to make better use of the available nutrients. Incorporating manure into growing corn can boost crop yields, reduce nutrient losses, and give livestock producers or commercial manure applicators another window of time to apply manure to farm fields.The manure research trial in Table 1 was conducted over six years at the Northwest Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s Hoytville station. The swine manure application rate was 5,000 gallons per acre to get 200 units of nitrogen. The dairy manure application rate was 13,577 gallons per acre to get 130 units of nitrogen. The dairy treatments received additional nitrogen as incorporated 28% UAN just prior to the manure application to reach the 200-unit goal. The 28% UAN treatments also received 200 units of nitrogen.Pre-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure or dairy manure were made within five days of corn planting. Post-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure and dairy manure were made at the V3 stage of corn growth. Manure applications were made with a 1,250-gallon tanker and Dietrich toolbar with sweeps. Incorporated manure placed at a depth of five inches. Surface manure was applied by using the Dietrich toolbar held just above ground level. Table 1Manure Sidedress of Corn Research Trial – Six Year Summary201120122013201420152016Six-year averagePre-emergent treatmentsYield bu/acYield bu/acYield bu/acYield bu/acYield bu/acYield bu/acYieldbu/acIncorporated 28% UAN138.1111.5184.6145.1130.8140.9142.6Incorporated swine manure191.9128.6191.8146.5161.9162.0158.2Surface applied swine manure180.9109.5175.7137.2110.3125.5131.6Incorporated dairy manure + 28% UAN190.1132.0185.4166.1146.3163.7158.7Surface applied dairy manure + 28% UAN184.597.0166.0141.9106.4122.1126.7Post-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28% UAN132.7116.0181.9140.9140.1145.1144.8Incorporated swine manure180.8138.4196.7139.9158.5183.7163.4Surface applied swine manure178.0116.4188.0115.6114.6153.1137.5Incorporated dairy manure + 28% UAN180.0138.8192.0156.9167.5167.7164.6Surface applied dairy manure + 28% UAN170.5101.6181.5125.3111.6156.1135.2Zero nitrogen check74.462.682.067.040.248.760.1 Stand populations were approximately 31,000 plants per acre across all treatments. The manure did not appear to reduce the plot stands in any year. The 2011, 2012 and 2014 growing seasons experienced moderate to severe drought conditions and the crop in the manure treatments appeared to benefit from the moisture contained in the manure.The incorporated manure treatments produced higher yields than the 28% UAN and the surface applied manure treatments. This is probably due to less nitrogen being lost when the manure was incorporated. Incorporation of manure can result in less nitrogen loss, less odor, and can reduce the loss of phosphorus from the fields.A drag hose treatment (Table 2) was added in to determine what stand damage and potential yield loss may occur from the V1 to the V5 stage. A six-inch diameter drag hose, filled with water, was pulled across each plot twice (going in opposite directions) at corn growth stages one through five. The plot was replicated four times in a randomized block design. Table 22014-2017 OARDC Drag Hose Damage Corn Plot ResultsYear2014201520162017Corn stageStandYield bu/acStandYield bu/acStandYield bu/acStandYield bu/acFour-year ave.No drag hose30,166145.131,850167.228,625145.135,000164.5155.5V129,660154.331,750166.128,625149.535,125161.5157.9V230,166157.932,000165.328,500141.234,750159.6156.0V328,933153.931,375172.329,250144.434,875172.1160.7V429,264149.723,500123.527,500152.133,750166.5147.9V515,366109.8——16,000126.325,250122.2119.4**Based on three years of dataThe results of this four-year research study suggests corn could be sidedressed with liquid livestock manure using a drag hose up to growth stage V3 without a yield loss. Three out of the four years the V4 stage did not have a statistically significant yield drop either.Harrod Farms in Darke County (Table 3) used a drag hose to apply swine finishing manure to their corn fields in the 2014-2017 growing seasons with great success. The corn was generally at the V3 stage of growth when the manure was incorporated as a sidedress although it was just spiking the first year in 2014.Table 3.Harrod Farms Four-Year Manure Incorporation Drag Hose Corn PlotsYearSwine Finishing Manure28% UAN2017165145201622221620151541212014204204Average yield186.3171.5 The manure treatments have averaged 14.8 bushels per acre more than the 28% UAN treatments. They incorporated approximately 6,500 gallons of swine finishing manure per acre to provide all the sidedress nitrogen. Harrod Farms plants their corn fields at an angle to make the drag hose work. This way a hose humper is not needed.

Weighing the Merits of Spray Foam Insulation

first_imgEnergy codes aren’t everythingEnergy codes may call for R-49 in the roof, but that doesn’t mean it’s absolutely necessary, some commenters argue.Among them is A.J. Builder in upstate New York, who writes that “code R-values do not factor in how well spray foam works compared to fiberglass of the same R value. Most times spray foam is not installed to code R values and yet it performs much better than fiberglass.”Others go even further. Meeting the R-49 requirements is a “waste of money,” Eric Price writes.“Eric is right,” adds John Pfeiffer. “IMHO the law of diminishing returns really takes a bite out of using more than 2 to 3 in. of closed-cell (depending on your location, I’m in southern N.Y., zone 4a). Don’t trust the codes for telling you what is the most cost-effective way to insulate a house. They are written by people wearing suits and working in offices, not contractors.”An R-40 roof may leak half the amount of heat as an R-20 roof, he says, but savings may amount to only pennies per square foot at the expense of adding twice the amount of insulation at double the cost.“Also, consider what happens if your roof has a leak,” he adds. “Open-cell is a sponge and will need to be taken out and replaced; closed-cell won’t show the leak and will soak the plywood until something gives.” GREEN PRODUCT GUIDE Spray Foam Insulation: Open and Closed CellIt’s OK to Skimp On Insulation, Icynene Says Concerns When Using Spray Foam in RetrofitsGreen Basics: Rigid Foam Insulation PHIUS Says No to Some Types of Spray Foam Our expert’s opinionGBA technical director Peter Yost added this:Scott, it sure sounds as though you would like to optimize energy performance, taking advantage of the framing cavities being open, and do it as economically as possible, including DIY. Given all that, here are my recommendations:Get a sense of where to spend your money – the best two ways to do this, in my opinion, are to get a whole-house performance assessment done by a BPI-certified technician, and to use the LBNL Home Energy Saver Pro Energy Assessment Tool. I have used this on more than one project, and using the detailed assessment path, I have come within $100 of total household annual utility bills, and their recommendations are useful.Seriously consider the DIY rigid-foam approach to cavity fill. Yes, this is labor-intensive, but it is relatively easy to do, and you often can employ scraps of rigid foam or salvaged rigid foam insulation. The key is to not be too fussy about how your cuts fit, because you can’t cut it tight or well enough to be your air barrier anyway, so save the air sealing for later, when you spray foam all your joints and perimeters.Others have given solid guidance on choosing open-cell or closed-cell foam. On this, let me add that if you do choose a spray foam approach to cavity fill, be sure to use a certified installer.Evaluate your investment options. Martin and I just both wrote useful blogs on the topic of payback analysis – give those a look. Open-cell vs. closed-cell foamJean-Paul McGraw sums up some of the basic differences between these two types of insulation, including R-values and cost.“The advantages of closed-cell foam compared to open-cell foam include its strength, higher R-value, and its greater resistance to the leakage of air or water vapor,” McGraw writes. Spray Foam Insulation “The disadvantage of the closed-cell foam is that it is denser, requires more material, and therefore, is more expensive. Even though it has a better R-value, typically the cost per R is still higher than open-cell foam. The choice of foam can also be based on the requirements for the other performance or application specific characteristics such as strength, vapor control, available space, etc.”Open-cell spray foam has an R-value of about 3.5 to 3.7 per inch and typically uses water as a blowing agent, while closed-cell foam has an R-value of about 6 per inch, he adds.Costs, at least in McGraw’s area, average about 80 cents a square foot for open-cell foam and about $1.20 per square foot for closed-cell foam. With those R-values in mind, Jacobs will have trouble meeting energy code recommendations for his region if he goes with open-cell foam.“A house in [Climate Zone] 6 requires R-49 insulation in the attic,” Armando Cobo says. “If your intention is to have a conditioned attic, 7.5 in. [of open-cell] foam is R-28, then you also need 3 in. minimum rigid insulation on top of the roof decking. If you want to install [closed-cell] foam, you would require 7.5 in., and it can only be installed in 2-in. applications.”Cobo steers Jacobs toward a chart provided by Demilec, an insulation manufacturer, with more details.“The companies that are proposing 7 inches of open-cell spray foam for your roof are only offering R-26,” adds GBA senior editor Martin Holladay. “That isn’t much. In your climate zone, as Armando points out, you really want at least R-49. Don’t let a spray-foam contractor talk you into accepting insulation that is less than the minimum code requirements.” Scott Jacobs’ 1,100-square-foot Cape is a perfect candidate for an energy upgrade. The 90-year-old house is gutted, and Jacobs wants to insulate it well even if his budget is not unlimited.The house, located in Climate Zone 6, now has a 1/2-inch-thick layer of rigid foam on the exterior walls. Jacobs’ plan is to insulate the house from the inside with spray polyurethane foam.“This is my problem,” Jacobs writes in a Q&A post at GreenBuildingAdvisor. “Three companies have provided estimates now. Two say open-cell foam, 7 inches to 8 inches, on the roof and 3.75 inches on the walls. One company just quoted 7 inches of open-cell foam on the roof and 2 inches of closed-cell foam on walls. Estimates vary between $4,500 and $5,500.”First, Jacobs wonders, how do the 2 inches of closed-cell foam compare with 3 3/4 inches of open-cell foam? And second, for someone with not much money to spend, would installing rigid foam insulation in the rafter bays himself be a reasonable option?That’s the topic for this month’s Q&A Spotlight.

How to Create a Pen Camera in Adobe After Effects

first_imgLearn how you can place your camera’s point of view on the tip of a pen (or anything) in After Effects with this video tutorial.Top image via Galymzhan Abdugalimov.As cameras have gotten smaller (without sacrificing quality), filmmakers have begun finding creative ways to use them that would have been impossible before. An example is the 5D Mk II on the barrel of a rifle in Act of Valor or a 7D on the edge of a shovel in Breaking Bad.Image via AMC.While cameras have become small enough to attach to tools, we may still be a few years out from seeing a camera that can actually film from the POV of a pen at broadcast quality. However, you can still pull off this trick in post-production with only a few simple steps.Before we jump into the tutorial, if you know that you’re going to apply this effect when you’re filming, you want to make sure you have a clear shot of the pen tip, and to make sure that it stays in focus so we can track it more easily in post-production. You also want to film at the highest resolution possible, as the shot will end up cropped after we apply the camera layer. Most importantly, make sure to frame the pen so it looks like the camera is on top of it to some extent. The MethodCreate a new composition with the footage, and find when the pen first touches the paper and when it stops touching it.If the tracker panel isn’t open, go to Window and select Tracker.Then hit Track Motion, and you’ll see the layer window.Set your track point at the nib or tip of the pen, and then hit analyze forward. The tracker may have a bit of trouble following the tip because when the ink hits the paper, the pen moves away — sometimes the tracker thinks that the black ink is the pen tip. If your tracking point loses focus, go back and manually adjust the tracking.When you have successfully tracked the movement, create a new null object, make sure that it’s the target, and hit apply.We are then going to add a new camera layer (the default setting is fine), and we’re going to parent the camera layer to the null object. To create the magic, we then turn our pen clip into a 3D layer by clicking this icon.We now have the camera following the tip of the pen as if it were attached to the pen itself. However, we also have a video clip that jumps around the composition and shows a lot of negative space.As I said, it is better to film in 4k if you can because we can simply change the composition to 1080p and crop out the negative space. If you don’t have the option of shooting in 4K, try to frame your shot with a bit of open space, so you can increase the scale of the clip without losing too much of the pen.There we go. A simple but very cool technique.last_img read more

Why Salesmanship Matters

first_imgYour dream client doesn’t have any way to know whether your company is better than your competitor’s. Nor are they likely to look for objective information to discern the differences. Trying to gain an advantage by starting with your company is ineffective because it doesn’t provide any real, actionable insights your dream client can use to decide.Level 1 is a ZeroYou believe that your product or service or solution is markedly better than your competitors. They believe that theirs is better. Both of you spend time trying to differentiate from your competitors in some meaningful way, including trying to tie what you sell to any preferences your dream client discloses. Remember, your dream client has no objective way to determine which of your solutions would better serve them, having never experienced either. You don’t help by providing them with information they can find on a website or sell sheet.Proof Providing isn’t ProofMaybe you provide your prospective client with references, people at companies that will vouch that you are an excellent partner. Your competitor may also provide a similar list, neither of you being so short-sighted as to provide any names and numbers of people who might say something that harm’s your chances of winning their business. What you believe to be proof isn’t strong evidence that your dream client should buy from you.You Are the ExperienceWhat, then, does your dream client have to go on when deciding whether to buy from you or your competitor?First, they have the experience of working with you throughout the process. They are getting an idea of who has the best idea about why they need to change, how they need to change, and what’s important to them. They also get a feel for what it is going to be like to work with you and your company, whether you are collaborative, whether you can be trusted, and how you are going to respond to challenges.Second, because deciding to buy from you is going to be visible to a lot of people on their team, they are gauging whether you are going to be acceptable—or better still, impressive—to the people you are going to interact with inside their company. Not only do you need to help them build consensus around change and the right solution, you are also being vetted to see whether the system is going to reject you.You are the element of your company that your dream client is going to have the most experience with before they make a decision to buy from you or your competitor. Even if they use a spreadsheet to pretend that they are making an objective decision based on measurable criteria, you are a large part of their decision. This means you have to up your game as it pertains to creating a preference to work with you and your company.You are, now more than ever, one of the largest components of the value proposition.last_img read more

Application for England coaching role was laughed at says Flintoff

first_imgManchester: Former Ashes-winning all rounder Andrew Flintoff said he once applied for the England head coach role in 2014 but claims his email was dismissed as a joke. “A few years ago I applied for the England coaching job — we were getting beat, I was in the office and thought, ‘I’m going to apply'”, Flintoff told BBC’s Test Match Special during the fourth test at Old Trafford on Friday. “I wrote an email for the interview, a month passed and I’d heard nothing. I chased it up, then I got a phone call saying they thought it was somebody taking the mick.” Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFlintoff’s England career earned him cult status.

He was captain in 2006-07 when Australia inflicted emphatic revenge with a 5-0 hammering but was also part of the 2009 Ashes winning side. His off-field antics also made headlines, particularly at the 2007 World Cup in West Indies when he reportedly had to be rescued after falling off a pedalo following a night out — an incident that saw him stripped of the vice-captaincy and fined.

Nissans directors say governance reforms to bring job cuts

YOKOHAMA, Japan — The executives charged with strengthening governance at Nissan are saying extensive job cuts are coming, designed to drive a recovery at the Japanese automaker.Nissan’s brand image has been battered by a scandal over alleged financial misconduct by its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn.Motoo Nagai, a former banker and new outside director overseeing audits, told reporters Wednesday that the job cuts will be under a new “jump” recovery plan. Japanese media have reported Nissan plans to slash 10,000 jobs.The company reported in May that its annual profit nose-dived to less than half of what it earned the previous year.Ghosn led Nissan for two decades and is awaiting trial on allegations he under-reported his future compensation and had Nissan shoulder his investment losses. He says he is innocent.The Associated Press read more

Worlds smallest countries step up to plate for UN AIDS campaign

At a luncheon in New York this week, representatives of the four governments confirmed to UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Ann Veneman a $140,000 donation ($35,000 from each), marking the first time they have pooled resources to support the agency and the first time that Monaco and San Marino have become government donors to the agency through earmarked funds.Monaco, the smallest of the four, only measures 1.95 square kilometres, just three times the size of the Washington Mall, the wide promenade leading from the United States Capitol towards the Washington Monument obelisk, and has a population of about 32,000. By contrast, Gabon covers more than 267, 000 square kilometres with a population of some 1.4 million. The contribution is the first donation to UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign that is specifically ear-marked for Gabon.Gabon is stepping up its efforts to address the severe impact of HIV/AIDS on children and recently created a Ministry for AIDS.Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS is a global partnership campaign to alert the world to the fact that children are missing from the global AIDS agenda. It provides a platform for urgent and sustained programmes, advocacy and fundraising to limit the impact of HIV/AIDS on children and help halt the spread of the disease. Convened by UNICEF and involving partners from every sector of the global community, the campaign outlines a child-based approach to holding the world to its promises to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS. It offers mechanisms for a faster and stronger response by all those who can make a difference from the community level up. read more

Malaysian leader issues call at UN for better understanding of Muslim humiliation

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, addressing the second day of the General Assembly’s annual debate, said this humiliation “is the root cause for the loss of trust and confidence between the Muslim world on one side and the Judeo-Christian civilization on the other side.”He said it was particularly dispiriting that the greatest discord in the world exists between the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, “who had in fact shared a common beginning, which was the religion of Abraham.”Mr. Badawi called on all sides to strive harder to take part in sincere dialogue, instead of pre-judging the position of certain countries as “evil” or engaging in name-calling.He then focused on the Middle East, where he said recent events across the region – from Palestine and Lebanon to Iraq and Afghanistan – have “helped make what may once have been extremist opinions part of the Muslim mainstream. The Muslim world certainly sees all these as a complicity to humiliate Muslim countries and Muslim societies.”Citing the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories and the armed conflict with Hizbollah in Iran, he said “the actions of Israel in the Middle East are being supported, either openly or tacitly, supposedly in defence of the Judeo-Christian tradition against the spread of radical militant Islam, thus legitimizing all of its actions, no matter how brutal.”Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, the President of Maldives, also voiced dismay at “a resurgence of the vilification of Islam and Muslims,” stressing that the religion preaches moderation and not extremism.During his speech, Mr. Gayoom also took up the subject of economic development, noting that recent progress means the Indian Ocean island chain is poised to leave behind its status as a ‘least developed country.’The Maldivian leader said these economic advances have occurred at the same time as “a major political transformation” across the archipelago, especially in the areas of human rights, media freedom and judicial reform.Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa devoted much of his address to the continuing conflict between Government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which he said “has been terrorizing our people for over two decades.”Mr. Rajapaksa said his Government was willing to talk to the LTTE, either directly or through an intermediary, to try to find a solution to the conflict through dialogue instead of military action.Acknowledging that some of the concerns of minorities in Sri Lanka have “deep roots,” the President said a consultative process has begun to develop constitutional proposals to meet those concerns. read more

Qatar clinch semifinal together with Spain France and Poland

Qatar will play for the final against Poland, after Valero Rivera boys beat Germany 26:24…That will be the first couple of semi-final on Friday 18.30 local time, while in the second match will face France against Spain.Croatia vs Poland 22:24 (10:12)A greater will to win and goalkeeper Slawomir Szmal were the keys for the third Polish ticket to a World Championship semi-final since 2007. Croatia did not manage to maintain an intermediate three-goal lead.The first half was largely even, while Poland had the better finish, ahead by two goals. Then the Croats turned the tide, producing a 6:1 series to lead 16:13. Poland struck back, retaking the lead ten minutes before the final buzzer. Still nothing was decided and the Croats even seemed to be on the winners’ way when Zlatko Horvat netted in for a 21:20 lead. But it would be short-lived.Thanks to three unanswered strikes by Chrapkowski, Syprzak and their top scorer Mariusz Jurkiewicz and two spectacular Szmal saves, Poland stormed into the semi-final.Qatar vs Germany 26:24 (18:14)The incredible success story of hosts Qatar continues with their unlikely journey now taking them to the final four. Tonight it was thanks largely to the saves by their goalkeeper duo Danijel Saric and Goran Stojanovic, who pulled the German teeth.The 1:0 start was the Germans’ first and only lead. Shortly after the hosts took full control, forging ahead to leads of 6:3, 13:7 and 16:9. While Zarko Markovic was nearly unstoppable on offence, the Germans also missed too many clear opportunities to change the game’s momentum. But they showed strong morale and character in the second half, narrowing a seven-goal deficit to 19:20.Again Saric, Markovic (six goals in total) and top scorer Rafael Capote (eight goals) took full responsibility, saving the lead for Qatar and supported by the frantic fans on the stands.Germany could not reduce the gap to less than two goals and left the field empty-handed. Their top scorer was Uwe Gensheimer with five goals, while their best player was goalkeeper Silvio Heinevetter with 11 saves.Denmark vs Spain 24:25 (11:11)In this rematch of the 2013 World Championship final (won by Spain 35:19), a last-second goal by Joan Canellas decided the most exciting thriller of the quarter-finals. The two sides were even for 60 minutes, taking turns with the lead. And just as the fans were preparing to see extra-time, Cannelas found a gap to score the winning goal with two seconds remaining.No team managed to force ahead to more than a two-goal difference through the entire 60 minutes.The outstanding player of the match was Spanish wing Valero Rivera junior who scored 10 goals from 11 attempts. And like his father Valero sen., will play in the semi-final.Slovenia vs France 23:32 (10:18)Here, the first 13 minutes had already decided the unequal encounter. Thanks to the saves by goalkeeper Thierry Omeyer (18 in total) and the needle-pin counter attacks, France were ahead 7:1 and led 18:10 at the break. When the lead hit double figures for the first time at 20:10, the deal was sealed.Slovenia, a semi-finalist in 2013, reduced the margin briefly at 20:24, which only forced France into once again taking the match seriously.Luka Zvizej (Slovenia) and Daniel Narcisse (France) were the top scorers with six goals each. read more

Home Prices Rise in 20 US Cities

first_img Home prices in U.S. cities saw year-over-year increases, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices released today. Bothe the 10-City and 20-City composites saw gains in January compared to December. The 10-City composite gained 4.4 percent, up from 4.3 percent seen in December. Data released today for January 2015 show that home prices continued their rise across the country over the last 12 months. However, monthly data reveal slowing increases and seasonal weakness.“The combination of low interest rates and strong consumer confidence based on solid job growth, cheap oil and low inflation continue to support further increases in home prices” said David Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee for S&P Dow Jones Indices.The 20- City Composite gained 4.6 percent year-over-year, compared to a 4.4 percent increase in December. The S&P/Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index, which covers all nine U.S. census divisions, recorded a 4.5 percent annual gain in January 2015 versus a 4.6 percent increase in December 2014. Denver and Miami reported the highest year-over-year gains, as prices increased by 8.4 percent and 8.3 percent, respectively, over the last 12 months.“Regional patterns in recent months continue: strength in the west and southwest paced by Denver and Dallas with results ahead of the national index in the California cities, the Pacific Northwest and Las Vegas.

first_img 0 Comments   Share   Larry Fitzgerald stands on the wrong side of history when it comes to the 2012 season. The Arizona Cardinals’ star wideout is the only Pro Bowler in the league this season to catch passes from four different quarterbacks.While he might be the answer to a meaningless statistic at season’s end, there has been nothing trivial about his subsequent drop-off in production through Arizona’s first 15 games. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo But that satisfaction wasn’t limited to the Valley.Fitzgerald’s second 100-yard receiving day of the season caught the eye of the folks over at ProFootballFocus.com, who had this to say about Arizona’s poorly-utilized offensive weapon:Fitzgerald Still One of the BestHe hasn’t complained at all this season, but the revolving door of quarterbacking ineptitude has clearly affected Fitzgerald in a way it never has before, and there have been games where he hasn’t looked the force we know he can be. In this game he took the opportunity to remind everybody that he can still be amongst the toughest men in the NFL to cover. The Cardinals sent it his way 12 times and he caught eight passes for 111 yards, snagging six of those passes against Charles Tillman, the man that can hold Megatron quiet when the two meet. Fitzgerald made leaping grabs that we have been used to seeing him for years, and ran with purpose despite the failings of those around him. We can only hope for his sake the Cardinals find an answer at quarterback, because he is far too special a talent to waste.Since it came in a losing effort, Fitzgerald’s big day might be as meaningless as the opening stat of him catching passes from four different quarterbacks. But in a year filled with negative headlines, it’s nice once in a while to reflect on the performances that remind us that even during a season to forget, the Cardinals still have plenty of talent as they begin to focus their collective attention on 2013. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact With only a trip to San Francisco Sunday left on the Cardinals’ schedule, Fitzgerald remains on pace to have his worst statistical season since 2006, when he played just 13 games. Although he leads the team in receptions (69) and receiving yards (785), Fitzgerald’s average yards per catch (11.4) is the lowest its been since 2008 and his first down completions (44) are the fewest he’s accumulated since his rookie campaign in 2004. However, the most eye-opening aspect of his season, are the lack of trips the former Pittsburgh standout has made to the end zone. Fitzgerald hasn’t scored a touchdown since Arizona’s 31-17 loss at Green Bay in Week 9 and currently has a career-low four touchdowns in 2012.At 29 years of age, it’s safe to say Fitzgerald’s skills are not yet in decline. If anything, he is likely still in his prime. And while the organization and its fans have been victimized as a whole by the constant quarterback shuffle this season, no individual has been affected more so than No. 11.Fitzgerald has been a good soldier all season, failing to take the bait when given the opportunity to vent his criticism over the team’s poor quarterback play. So while it only lasted for 60 minutes, Fitzgerald’s eight-catch performance for 111 yards in the Cardinals’ Week 16 loss to the Chicago Bears gave everybody a temporary sense of satisfaction.last_img read more

Pushing the limits of what a DSLR can do are cameras like the Nikon D850 a new top of the line full-frame camera Related News DSLRs have not been getting the attention they deserve because of the ever increasing dominance of smartphones However that does not mean that the DSLR segment is struggling or failing to innovate In fact smartphones are proving beneficial for the segment in the longer run as new photography enthusiasts graduate to more powerful cameras after running out of creativity on the phone Pushing the limits of what a DSLR can do are cameras like the Nikon D850 a new top of the line full-frame camera The camera offers a lot of features which are innovative and really cutting edge While a full exhaustive review of the camera is tough we look at the new features that make this Nikon DSLR stand out MEGAPIXELS: The camera comes with 457 effective megapixels one of the highest in any camera at the moment And this means the details in the photos powered by the FX CMOS sensor are really good While I would not suggest a camera with such high pixels for an amateur or prosumer this is a camera clearly aimed at professionals and the extra MPs add a lot of value for photographers whose works will be blown up to poster and larger sizes Also this means 8256 x 4640p resolutions are possible while shooting full frame videos also COLOURS: I have always felt that the colour quality of Nikons and Canons differ though not from a quality perspective Those who have used both know that Nikon is more richer and Canon more subtler and photographers prefer either because of this I really loved the colours on the D850 more natural than I would have expected Using the Nikkor AF-S 300m f14 lens the light too added to the magic And there is no change in quality when you shift from still to video and this should endear the D850 to a lot of new age videographers out there Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) SMART CONNECTIVITY: Wi-Fi is nothing new in DSLRs but the way the D850 connects with a smartphone letting you transfer images in jiffy was a new experience for me While usually with DSLRs the wireless link is a pain as you struggle to connect and feed the password Nikon D850 uses the SnapBridge app like a dream The app connects via Bluetooth when it needs to transfer images but shifts to a Wi-Fi link to the smart device when it is to be used as a remote viewfinder I used an iPhone 8 Plus to control the camera remotely and I could use the touchscreen on the phone to select focus This is one of the best executions of a wireless link of a top-end camera of this type I love the fact that you don’t have to link it every time CONTROLS: While the controls — which seem like a miniaturised version of an airplane cockpit — can be a bit befuddling at first you will soon realise that the camera offers you multiple ways to change settings It takes a bit of time to get used to especially for a Canon-user like me But once you get the hang of it you will realise how convenient it is to change the modes or switch to video And you have the remote camera option on the app if this doesn’t work to your benefit My only issue was the lack of an easier way to shift to the amazing slow-motion mode while shooting video Nikon D850 price in
