They have many talented players in the team but most of them won’t continue. They have to change them, age is not on their side. Most of the players will change. CSK is not seen very active at auctions but in 2021 IPL auctions they probably will be the most active team’, said Gambhir to ESPNCricinfo.  Cricket “We didn’t play to our potential this season. We lost games that we should have won. That pushed us back. The withdrawals of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh coupled with Covid cases in the camp meant that the balance of the side was upset,” he was quoted by TOI. last_img read more

This project commenced just as the economy was beginning to recover from the recession. The aim was to come up with a residential development that was the different from the one widely used in the area and base on an obsolete partial development plan. The old plan proposed blocks with a wide width and interior courtyards for ventilation, but where the orientation of the homes and the organisation of the free areas were not a priority. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaTo amend the plan, a detailed study had to be drafted, setting out a different type of block, one that was ccompatible with the general plan in force and wich would help to create a new city model. To achieve this, a more efficient and sustainable volumen than the traditional “H” block with a courtyard was proposed. The two main objetives were to prioritise the orientation of the homes and to create a free space with as many facilities as possible.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaHabitat Bulever was therefore conceived as a residential complex laid out around a free space with an urban scale, with a square comparable in size to the well-know landmark of Patio Banderas beside the Alcázar in Seville. The building is organised around this square. It forms the quiet and isolated nucleus in which the private life of the development unfolds… similar to how people live not so along ago in corral communal dwellings, like one big family. A building model with a 12-metre bay was designed. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThis allowed the construction on off loor-through apartments with double ventilation and light, where all living areas are placed to the best orientating façade, thus giving the lunges an terraces the best sunning and lightingn. Three materials confer its characteristic and identifying image to the building.

A three-judge D.C. circuit court had previously determined that the bureau violated such clause.The CFPB stated that its structure involving a single director who can only be removed by the president for cause was not anything out of the ordinary for in the U.S. government, as the Trump administration and PHH Corp had previously claimed.“Here, the bureau’s structure does not interfere with the president’s power to take care that the law be faithfully executed, nor does it interfere with any other branch’s ability to perform its constitutionally assigned functions,” the CFPB said. “So the bureau’s structure does not infringe the Constitution’s separation of powers provisions-or the individual liberty that those provisions are designed to secure.”Previously, the Trump administration had indicated its support the D.C. Court’s initial ruling, which would make CFPB Director Cordray eligible to be fired at will by the president. Although the CFPB had argued against the administration’s interpretation of the bureau’s constitutionality, the Trump administration has the support of the D.C. Circuit Court.Phh further argued that the remedy proposed was not enough, and that the CFPB should be eliminated altogether. Still, the CFPB argued against this.According to the CFPB, the current PHH litigation is the perfect time to end discussion on its constitutionality.“Accordingly, even if this court could, on statutory grounds, vacate the bureau’s order, it should address the bureau’s constitutionality-the address has been fully briefed, it recurs with increasing frequency elsewhere, and is ripe for decision.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Pluto in detail

first_img Study suggests the Red Planet was icy rather than watery billions of years ago Related Unveiling the ancient climate of Mars NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft reached its closest approach to Pluto on Tuesday, swooping to within 7,800 miles of the dwarf planet out beyond Neptune, snapping pictures and gathering data.Astrophysicists around the world watched to see what the mission, the farthest-reaching of its kind, would reveal about the formation of the solar system, the planet itself, and the Kuiper Belt, where it resides. Also of interest: Pluto’s unusual binary relationship with its largest moon, Charon.New Horizons, which launched in 2006, traveled some 3 billion miles for the encounter and has already provided a precise measurement of Pluto’s diameter, confirming that it is the Kuiper Belt’s largest object. It has also determined that ice made of nitrogen and methane are at the planet’s poles and, perhaps most dramatically, provided the most detailed images yet of Pluto and Charon.Scott Kenyon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics shared his reaction to the flyby in an interview with the Gazette. GAZETTE: Is there a feeling of excitement in the astrophysics community?KENYON: For those of us who work on planetary science of the solar system and exoplanets, it is exciting because it’s the first time we get to look at an icy planet that doesn’t have any gas around it. The idea of planet formation is that all planets grow by agglomeration and the gas giants, Jupiter through Neptune, have an icy, few-Earth-mass ball at their center. So we get to look and see what one looks like now.“For those of us who work on planetary science of the solar system and exoplanets, it is exciting because it’s the first time we get to look at an icy planet that doesn’t have any gas around it,” said Scott Kenyon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Photo by Jeff DunasGAZETTE: What else is important about this mission?KENYON: I think there are a number of things that make Pluto interesting. It’s the largest — now we know — of these Kuiper Belt objects, at least in physical dimensions. [Kuiper Belt objects] are a set of objects out beyond the orbit of Neptune, which are the coldest, least evolved, most primitive objects in the solar system. So, looking at one and getting measures on its composition, on its topography, on how much ammonia versus methane versus water/ice, tells us a lot about the early conditions in the outer part of the solar system.And then Pluto is a binary world. The center of mass of Pluto-Charon is outside of Pluto, so that it’s different from the Earth-Moon system, where the center of mass is inside the Earth. And there are the four little satellites orbiting this binary planet, and that tells us a little bit about how planets form around binary star systems. And the Kepler satellite is starting to discover those. Pluto is one we can visit and study in detail.GAZETTE: You’ve done some work directly on that?KENYON: We have, yes, with my collaborator, Ben Bromley from [the University of] Utah.GAZETTE: How does this fit into your work?KENYON: It’s sort of a test. What we do is numerical simulations of the formation and evolution of planetary systems. The simplest calculations we’ve done for the Pluto system [involve] asking what happened after this giant collision that is thought to have made the Pluto-Charon binary.Pluto and Charon formed in separate places in the solar system; Charon skimmed [Pluto’s] surface, kicked up a bunch of junk and became bound [to Pluto]. The bunch of stuff that got kicked up became the four satellites. So we do calculations of how that works. What the satellites actually look like in their orbits and [their] compositions will constrain the theoretical models we make.Also [important is] whether they detect any more satellites. Unfortunately, they had this glitch at a time last week when they were taking really deep images to look for more satellites. Hopefully they’ll get to try that again now that they’re by the system. How many satellites [Pluto has], how massive they are, constrains this giant collision and the aftermath.Just the fact that there are four icy bodies orbiting this binary system constrains our models for how planets form around binaries. They’re close, they’re tightly packed. You couldn’t fit another satellite in the system between the innermost one, Styx, and the outermost one, Hydra, and have it be stable for any length of time. And there are planetary systems like that, where you couldn’t stick another planet in it. So we learn about how all of these things happen. We are, as theorists, trying to link how Pluto formed and evolved to how exoplanets form and evolve. Everything that they get from the composition to the shapes and sizes and rotation will inform and constrain our models.GAZETTE: How do you feel about seeing these pictures? These are clearly the most detailed images we’ve seen so far.KENYON: Well, they’re cool. They’re starting to become more than just little points of light. A space telescope did some observations 10 or so years ago where Pluto and Charon mutually eclipsed one another. You could get crude, four-, five-, six-pixel maps of each of them. They had a few dark pixels and a few bright pixels. Now, we’re starting to see craters and plains and valleys and mountains and things — at least that’s what we’re imagining that we’re seeing.But once we get the images from the flyby and the detailed images, it’ll be pretty amazing because we’ll be able to see the equivalent of fissures like we see on some of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, geysers like we see on some of the satellites of Saturn and Jupiter. It’ll be really interesting — what we end up seeing and how different it is from the icy moons of Saturn and Jupiter.GAZETTE: Will you be looking eagerly when the data is released?KENYON: I’m planning on being ready for it. From the ground-based measurements of Pluto and Charon, Pluto is mostly frozen nitrogen and some frozen methane and ammonia on its surface. And Charon seems to be mostly water, frozen water. What is interesting is that they’re already somewhat different. It’ll be interesting to see if that holds up. I don’t think we’ll know from these images, but we’ll get to see [some] differences. We can already see that Pluto is peach- or salmon-colored and Charon seems to be pretty gray. But there are bright and dark features on both of them and we’ll see what they are.last_img read more

Smoking linked with higher risk of type 2 diabetes

first_img Read Full Story Current smokers and people regularly exposed to second-hand smoke have a significantly increased risk for type 2 diabetes compared with people who have never smoked, according to a new meta-analysis conducted by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, and National University of Singapore. The researchers estimated that 11.7% of cases of type 2 diabetes in men and 2.4% in women (about 27.8 million cases in total worldwide) may be attributable to active smoking. They also found that risk decreases as time elapses after smokers quit.“Cigarette smoking should be considered as a key modifiable risk factor for diabetes. Public health efforts to reduce smoking will have a substantial impact on the global burden of type 2 diabetes,” said co-author Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology.The study will be published September 18, 2015 in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.While the evidence pointing to smoking as a risk factor for cancer, respiratory diseases, and cardiovascular disease is overwhelming, corroboration of a link between smoking and type 2 diabetes risk has been slower to build. In 2014, the U.S. Surgeon General’s report for the first time included a section on smoking and diabetes risk and argued for the causal relation between them, although it did not discuss the relation of passive smoking and smoking cessation with diabetes risk.last_img read more

The need to talk about race

first_imgFor the past 30 years, lawyer and social activist Bryan Stevenson ’85 has battled through the courts, defending wrongly convicted death-row prisoners and children prosecuted as adults, while condemning mass incarceration, excessive sentences, and racial bias in the criminal justice system.Now Stevenson ’85, a graduate of Harvard Law School and Harvard Kennedy School, is about to embark on a fight outside the courts to start a national conversation about the painful legacy of slavery, which he said “continues to haunt us today.”Delivering the 2017 Tanner Lecture on Human Values on Wednesday, Stevenson announced a planned memorial to honor more than 4,000 victims of lynching in the U.S. and a museum that traces the country’s history of racial inequality from enslavement to mass incarceration. They will be located in Montgomery, Ala., a cradle of the Confederacy and a birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement. The memorial and museum, scheduled to open in April, are part of Stevenson’s efforts to end the general national silence about slavery, lynching, and segregation.“It’s critical at this moment in our nation’s history that we talk about race,” Stevenson told a packed crowd at First Parish Church in Cambridge. “Slavery didn’t end in 1865. It just evolved. It turned into decades of terrorism, violence, and lynching. And the era of lynching was devastating. It created a shadow all over this country, and we haven’t talked about it; we haven’t confronted it.During the Tanner Lecture, Bryan Stevenson also announced the opening of a memorial to victims of lynching and a museum on the legacy of slavery.“The true evil of American slavery wasn’t involuntary servitude,” he said. “It was the narrative of racial difference, the ideology of white supremacy that we made up to justify slavery. That’s the true evil.”Stevenson compared efforts in Rwanda, South Africa, and Germany to memorialize their own legacies of genocide, apartheid, and the Holocaust with the lack of memorials or markers in the U.S. to acknowledge its long history of racial inequality, particularly its deep history of lynching.“Black people were kidnapped, taken out of their homes,” said Stevenson. “They were murdered. They were beaten. They were hanged. They were brutalized. They were terrorized, and they have never been recognized. And in the 20th century, we created one of the largest mass migrations the world had ever seen. Millions of blacks fled the American South. The black people who went to Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, or Boston didn’t come to these communities as immigrants looking for economic opportunities. They came as refugees and exiles of terror from the American South.”Stevenson, a professor at the New York University School of Law, a MacArthur “genius” award winner, and founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, said he hopes that the upcoming National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the country’s first comprehensive memorial to victims of lynching, will help communities across the nation reckon with their past.Between the Civil War and World War II, more than 4,000 African-Americans were lynched by white mobs, Stevenson’s organization has documented. The memorial will feature more than 800 columns, one for each county in the U.S. where lynchings took place, and the names of all the victims will be inscribed on the columns.“We’re going to ask every community where a lynching took place to come to Montgomery and claim the replica of the monument for their community, to take it back and erect it in a prominent place,” Stevenson said. “It’s an effort at changing the iconography of America.” In Montgomery, there are more than 50 monuments to the Confederacy, he added.Stevenson said it is also important also to acknowledge the legacy of enslavement in the present criminal justice system. One of three black men is in prison, on probation, or on parole, he said, and statistics say that one in three black males born today will go to jail at some point in his life.Homi K. Bhabha, director of the Mahindra Humanities Center, which hosted the event, held a panel discussion following Stevenson’s lecture.Stevenson blames a misguided war on drugs and the influence of political leaders who have preached fear and anger, leading to long prison sentences, to prosecuting children as adults, and to mass incarceration.Confronting the legacy of slavery will be hard and uncomfortable, said Stevenson, but it’s necessary to rescue the soul of the nation. Acknowledging the atrocities of the past can help change the narrative of racial differences and white supremacist ideology that persists today, and foster truth and reconciliation in its place.“I do believe that this effort, in thinking who we are and how we come to be where we are, is a critical factor at this time in our nation’s history,” said Stevenson. “Narrative and memory are important if we’re going to create a just society. I think this work is critical to the success of the rule of law in this country.”The event was hosted by the Mahindra Humanities Center in collaboration with the Office of the President at Harvard. President Drew Faust introduced the lecture, calling the sessions “one of Harvard’s great intellectual traditions.”Afterward, Homi K. Bhabha, director of the Humanities Center, led a panel discussion on the issues of mass incarceration, racial injustice, and the death penalty.Among the panelists were Nancy Gertner, senior lecturer on law at the Law School and a retired U.S. district judge; Tommie Shelby, Caldwell Titcomb Professor in the Department of African and African American Studies and the Department of Philosophy, and Carol S. Steiker, Henry J. Friendly Professor of Law at the Law School.Reflecting on her years on the bench, Gertner criticized mandatory minimum sentencing, a legal trend that was a product of the war on drugs that led to the surge in the number of African-Americans in the federal prison population.Shelby addressed the issue of racial injustice and its ties to economic injustice and said that mass incarceration is a matter of economic injustice.Steiker spoke about the history of the death penalty in the United States and talked about its racial basis. The United States is the only Western democracy that uses capital punishment, she said, and is a leader internationally in doing so.last_img read more

CFPB issues guidance on construction loans/TRID

first_imgGood Tuesday morning from our nation’s capital! I’m happy to be in attendance alongside the nearly 5,000 credit union professionals at this year’s CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). GAC is a tremendous opportunity to network with others in the industry and share stories of the #CUdifference with our legislators and regulators.As always, CUNA has done a great job of putting together a jam packed agenda here in Washington, D.C. As a result, I’ll keep today’s post brief. You know, it’s funny. I can actually hear my regular readers (all three of them) breathing a collective sigh of relief.Last month the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was kind enough to issue some clarifying guidance on complying with the Integrated Disclosure Rule (TRID) relative to construction loans. While many in the industry found the guidance lacking in substance, at least it’s something. Let’s take a moment to review the key points:Construction Loans are Subject to TRIDWhile you were not required to provide the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) on construction loans as they are considered temporary financing under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), most construction loans do fall within the scope of TRID. As a result, both the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure are required to be provided in connection with a closed-end construction loan. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

FDIC, echoing NAFCU, clarifies Volcker rule requirements

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » FDIC Board Member Martin Gruenberg this week made clear that relief language in S. 2155 regarding the Volcker rule is intended for community banks – not all banks regardless of asset size as some have argued. Gruenberg’s conclusion on the intent of the language supports NAFCU’s view, which was shared with the FDIC and other bank regulators earlier this month.“There has been some discussion that the new statute can be read in a way that would allow any bank, regardless of asset size, to be exempt from the Volcker Rule if its trading assets and liabilities are five percent or less of its total consolidated assets … This was not the intent of the new statute as I understand it … I believe it is clear that this statutory exemption … appl[ies] only to banking organizations with $10 billion or less in total consolidated assets and that the limitation on trading assets and liabilities is an additional limitation placed on this defined group of banking organizations,” Gruenberg said.In a letter to the OCC, FDIC, Federal Reserve, Commodities Futures Trading Commission, and Securities and Exchange Commission, NAFCU Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt gave a similar explanation to the intent of this portion of S. 2155. She further noted that the Volcker rule is a “critical reform that emerged from the financial crisis which addresses, among other things, the riskiest of all investment behaviors – investing in private equity or hedge funds using a bank’s own accounts for the bank’s own benefit.”last_img read more

All signs point to better fortunes for charming FNQ town

first_imgA stunning “waterfall home”, listed for sale through LJ Hooker Cairns South, is one of many nice Babinda properties.SIX years after the closure of Babinda Mill led to lost jobs and hurt community spirit, hopes are now high for the scenic Far North town.Just a 50-minute drive south of Cairns, Babinda has a median house selling price of just $228,000 – compared to the Cairns average of about $407,000.But Roger Barnett, 72, who moved to the community about 14 months ago to head up the new Babinda Springs water bottling plant, believes the completion of the Bruce Highway upgrades will herald the start of a new era for Babinda.“I watched it happen on the Gold Coast, there was a time when people would not consider living there and driving to Brisbane for work every day,” he said. “But now so many people do it, and the same is going to happen in Cairns, it will eventually be just a 30-minute drive to the city from Babinda.”Next to a major highway, the picturesque mountainside town also features generous block sizes and tourism drawcards like the famous Babinda Boulders. More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoMr Barnett, who has lived across Australia during his business career, said he had “fallen in love” with Babinda, adding it was a perfect spot for budding first homeowners and investors.“Within three of four years, regardless of whether there is a property market dip in the capital cities, this place will start to be recognised,” he said. “So many things are coming to pass that will influence the desirability of living at Babinda, which I think is great.”In January this year a two-bedroom Queenslander at 7 Clyde Rd, Babinda, sold for just $100,000.The house was set on a 1012sq m block and, although dubbed a “renovator’s dream”, is an example of the value for money currently on offer.A three-bedroom house on Stanwell St, set on 2652sq m, is currently listed for just $250,000. Real estate agent Cheyenne Morrison, of LJ Hooker Cairns South, described Babinda property prices as “crazy cheap”.“Babinda has all the things the Daintree has, but instead of having to drive for hours and cross the river on a ferry, it is only 45 minutes from Cairns,” he said.last_img read more

3 face raps for Negros wildlife poaching

first_imgThey were arrested in Barangay Alijis here on Friday afternoon last week. “We will file it this week once the supporting documents are completed,” Gocotano said. An Asian palm civet, two Negros forest dragons, sailfin lizard and anglehead lizard were already dead upon retrieval. They were properly buried at the City Environment and Natural Resources Office-Bago grounds. Chief Master Sergeant Ramiro Gocotano, officer-in-charge of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-Bacolod, said they are collating more documents from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources local office for the filing of charges against the suspects. Ramil Cabale, 45; Dexter Belleza, 36; and Ruzzel Taghoy, 36, all residents of Barangay Minoyan in Murcia town, face charges for violation of Republic Act 9147, or the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act of 2001. Investigators believed the wild animals recovered from the suspects were collected from Mount Kanlaon Natural Park.  The surviving animals were released back to an undisclosed protected area in the province on Saturday. (With a report from PNA/PN)center_img Among the wildlife recovered were Philippine orange tarantula, Orphnaecus sp., assorted centipedes and millipedes, juvenile Philippine sailfin lizards, Negros forest dragon (gecko), Bornean anglehead lizards, and north Philippine temple pit vipers. BACOLOD City – Charges are being readied against three residents of Negros Occidental who yielded over 300 wild animals during an entrapment operation in Barangay Alijis here. Over the weekend, the three were released from detention after the 12-hour reglementary period lapsed. BY DOMINIQUE GABRIEL BAÑAGA Gocotano said the suspects agreed to pay P150,000 for all the animals – supposedly the asking price of the dealer for all the wildlife. last_img read more

Fletcher puts himself in exile

first_img The Scotland skipper has played just 13 games since announcing he was taking an extended break from football in November 2011 when he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. The 29-year-old has undergone numerous operations and been put on a strict dietary regime in a bid to correct his stomach condition and allow him to resume playing duties. Press Association But a definitive date for his comeback still eludes him and his medical advisors. Now Fletcher – who will miss the start of the Barclays Premier League campaign, including United’s first match against away to Swansea on August 17 – has made the decision to stay away from David Moyes’ squad until he is ready to rejoin them on a permanent basis. He said: “I’m staying away from the training ground right now just because it is difficult being there when you are not actually training. “I’ve spoken to the manager, he seems great and we have discussed the plan going forward. I just can’t wait to go back when I’m ready to get back training, not just plodding around no use to anyone.” Fletcher last went under the surgeon’s knife in January but while a timescale has not yet been placed on his return to action, he believes there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. “It’s been very frustrating,” he said. “I’ve struggled for three years. But knowing that it is hopefully coming to an end and that I can get back playing football to the level I expect to be playing is exciting. “I’ve got to believe that will be the case and I do. I’ve not been told there is a reason why that won’t be the case, so positive thinking is the only way I can get through these situations. “I’m still in the hands of the surgeons at the moment – I’ve not actually started training yet. Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has banned himself from entering the club’s Carrington training ground until he has beaten the illness which has blighted him for the past three years. “I’ve been doing my own little bit in the gym, which is keeping me ticking along nicely and I’m waiting for the surgeon to give me the go ahead to join in training. “I don’t have a timescale for when I will be back playing really. Hopefully it is not going to be too far away in the distant future. I just need to be patient. After all I’ve gone through I think it’s important that I’m patient. “If it means a few extra weeks to get myself right, then so be it.” Moyes took over as United boss this summer following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. Fletcher has already had discussions with the former Everton manager about how best to manage his condition and has also held similar talks with new Scotland boss Gordon Strachan. And the player stressed both men are giving him their full support. He said: “I’ve had a chat with the new manager at United that will remain between the two of us. It was a positive conversation and he’s been very much in favour of letting me get on with my recovery. When I’m ready to come back, that’s when he will look at me in terms of the playing side. “It’s the same with Gordon Strachan. I’ve been in touch with him. He’s been very positive and enthusiastic.” Fletcher’s last appearance for Scotland was in the 2-0 World Cup qualifying defeat to Belgium last October. Since then the two defeats in the three Group 1 fixtures that followed his last outing have counted the Dark Blues out of the race for next year’s finals in Brazil. The side travel south to face England at Wembley on August 14 and the national side’s captain admits missing out on that match is just as painful as watching his team-mates suffer on the international stage. He said: “It’s always difficult watching the team lose – but it’s difficult watching them win because you want to be part of it. “I wish I was going to Wembley playing but in these circumstances I’ve just had to think about myself and try and get back to where I want to be.” last_img read more

Bennett hails Norwich unity

first_img The Canaries had not won in eight games but a 1-0 victory over Steve Bruce’s side moved them to 12th in the table and eased the pressure on manager Chris Hughton. It was a game Norwich dominated, arguably more than any other this season, but they failed to create enough clear chances and relied on a Bennett header three minutes from time. “Some people, the fans especially, seem to think you can’t have fun any more if the results aren’t going well. You take it and it feels terrible when you aren’t winning games. “You are so low and you need something to pick you up and that is why I talk about strength in character and leaders in the team and we had that all week leading into the game.” The Scotland international, recently linked with a move to Celtic, has now called on the squad to continue their upturn in form. “It is a big weight off everyone’s shoulders,” added Snodgrass. “For us as players we need to try to take that level of performance into each game and the chances will come.” Former Norwich defender Bruce, whose side have taken just five points on the road since returning to the top flight, said the manner of the defeat was hard to stomach – even if his side did not deserve anything more. “It is always hard to take when you lose in the last few minutes, as it is equally as ecstatic when one of those goes for your team,” he said. “It was frustrating for all of us. In truth we didn’t really play well enough, particularly in the second half, to go and win the game but I thought we looked comfortable. “They had a few corners and free-kicks but we defended well. Then we conceded late and that is always annoying.” Nikica Jelavic made his Hull debut while fellow new recruit Shane Long was not risked after injuring an ankle on his last outing for former club West Brom. Croatia international Jelavic hit a post inside two minutes at Carrow Road but that was as good as it got for the Tigers, with Bruce anticipating better things to come from the 28-year-old. “That was the one bit of quality that we showed all day,” said Bruce. “It was a great move down the left, (Robert) Koren cut it back and you’d expect him to stick it in the net but he’s hit the post. But make no mistake, when we get it right he’s going to be a big acquisition for us.” It was only the 23-year-old’s second Barclays Premier League goal and Bennett felt the team’s celebratory huddle was a sign to the fans that they have all been working hard to address the recent slump in form. “It [the goal] is more important for the team,” he said. “I think we deserved it overall over the 90 minutes. Hopefully now we can push on. We had a few chances and we restricted them to hardly anything so it is always on your mind that we have found it difficult to score this year. “We knew how big the game was. The lads are really close here and we were getting some stick from the fans. “We have a solidarity between ourselves, we wanted to get together off the cuff and we said how important the goal was and to keep concentrated, it is something we carried into the dressing room after the game.” Bennett’s goal came from Norwich’s 10th corner of the game as Robert Snodgrass, who was a constant threat down the right flank all afternoon, delivered a set-piece that allowed the former England Under-21 international to power a header home. Snodgrass praised the character of the team to bounce back after disappointing results at Everton and Fulham. “It does hurt,” he said. Press Association Norwich’s new goalscoring hero has praised the unity among the squad after the whole team joined Ryan Bennett in celebrating his late winner in Saturday’s vital victory over Hull.last_img read more

Bonner’s patient 73 guides Scorpions to easy win over Canada

first_imgJAMAICA Scorpions overcame Canada with steady bowling led by Dennis Bulli and purposeful batting led by Nkrumah Bonner to clinch their third successive win in the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup on Monday.Entering the game needing a win to intensify their bid for a place in the Final Four in Trinidad at month-end, the Scorpions simply outlasted their opponents in a daytime, Group A game at the Conaree Cricket Centre.In pursuit of 245 to win, Bonner showed his class in an organised, unbeaten 73 from 79 balls that included eight boundaries to lead a successful run chase for the Scorpions on another batting paradise at the ground adjacent to the Robert Bradshaw International Airport in the St. Kitts capital.The Scorpions were 81 for three in the 20th over when Bonner arrived at the crease and anchored a succession of partnerships that got the Scorpions over the finish line to complete the tournament sweep of the Canadians, following a four-wicket win last Saturday in a day/night game at Warner Park.Bonner shared 85 for the fifth wicket with his captain Rovman Powell that changed the course of the innings and stayed until the end, which came with 13 balls remaining when Bulli lofted a delivery from Nitish Kumar to the deep cover boundary for four.The result kept the Scorpions in third place, behind group leaders Barbados Pride and hosts Leeward Islands Hurricanes, against whom they play in their final two matches this coming Wednesday and Sunday respectively, at Conaree.Bulli had earlier ripped out the Canada top-order batting with 4-40 from his allotted 10 overs and later earned the Player of the Match award.But the Canadians, on the back of a half-century from Harsh Thaker, fought to reach 244 for nine from their allocation of 50 overs, after they chose to bat.Thaker struck four fours and one six in 60 from 85 balls and led strong top-order batting. Kumar scored 42, Rayyankhan Pathan made 33, Jeet Metha got 32 before Shreyas Movva coming late in the order added 21.Pathan and Metha shared an opening stand of 69 before Canada stumbled to 92 for three in the 20th over, and Thaker led the recovery in a 56-run partnership with Kumar and a couple of small stands with his captain Kanwarpal Tathgur and Shahid Ahmadzai.Canada subsided to 212 for eight, after three wickets – two to rugged West Indies fast bowler Oshane Thomas – fell in the space of seven balls, but Movva and Kanwar Mann frustrated the Scorpions with a stand of 32 in the final five overs.Group “A” games continue today, when hosts Leeward Islands Hurricanes face last year’s champions Combined Campuses & Colleges Marooners in a daytime contest, starting at 9 .00hrs. at Conaree. This game will be webcast “live” on the CWI website, www.windiescricket.com, and the Windies Cricket YouTube channel. Group “B” play also resumes today with Guyana Jaguars and Windward Islands Volcanoes in a day/night, feature game, starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Queen’s Park Oval in the Trinidad & Tobago capital of Port of Spain. This game will be televised “live” on ESPN Caribbean in the region.A few miles due south, the United States and group leaders West Indies Emerging Players lock horns in another day/night contest, starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba.This game will also be webcast “live” on the CWI website, www.windiescricket.com and the Windies Cricket YouTube channel.(Sportsmax)last_img read more

Miscues, poor execution cost Syracuse in Big East home finale

first_imgJustin Pugh felt he personally let his teammates down. Ryan Nassib said there was a direct correlation between his play and Syracuse’s. Doug Marrone claimed SU’s 23-6 loss to Connecticut was his fault. They all put the blame on themselves in a loss that resulted from startling mistakes from the Orange on offense, defense and even special teams. But in a game where each unit slipped up at the most inopportune times, Antwon Bailey summed up how the entire team attributed the loss. ‘It was us,’ Bailey said. Us, as in the Orange’s three units all making simple, costly errors. Marrone has preached the importance of the ‘little things’ this season, and that is exactly where SU failed in its loss to UConn. From fumbles at the doorstep of the Husky endzone, to costly defensive penalties to an immaculate interception, Syracuse didn’t do the ‘little things’ Saturday in the Carrier Dome. It was a loss where, without the mounting errors of every unit, the game would have been much closer.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It all wouldn’t have piled on. ‘Dropped passes, missed blocks, missed hot reads,’ Pugh said, ‘just all of these things adding up.’ The pent-up frustration began with the first quirky mistake. It came because of a Nassib pass at the knee of SU tight end Nick Provo. With the Orange trailing 7-3 at the 2:30 mark of the second quarter, the errant pass deflected off Provo’s knee into the waiting hands of Reyes. Instead of continuing a half-ending drive to tie or take the lead, the deflection led to another Husky field goal. But more so, it led to the brewing frustration. Case in point: At the end of the half, Pugh jawed with several UConn players after Nassib was sacked. The trash-talking occurred while Marrone sprinted onto the field. The coach did so to catch up with SU left tackle Michael Hay and ream him out for the missed block that led to the sack. After letting off the fumes, Marrone kneeled over with his hands on his knees, staring at the turf for 10 seconds, before jetting for the locker room. Meanwhile, Pugh exchanged the words that, after the game, he said were all for naught. ‘It’s an emotional game, so I kind of got caught up in it,’ Pugh said. ‘I guess they can talk now, because we didn’t come out and do much.’ Marrone chalked up the performance not to emotion, but execution. He refused to call the loss the most frustrating game of the year. The fact that SU didn’t score a touchdown despite having three more first downs than UConn didn’t matter. The only reason for the frustration was because it was another loss. Everybody felt it. ‘I think there is a level of frustration in all of us,’ Marrone said. ‘What you do with that level of frustration, if it becomes overwhelming, then you can have some issues.’ In the second half, those issues reached new lows on select plays. The quirkiness continued as Reyes forced a Nassib fumble which was recovered by the Huskies at the SU four-yard line. With UConn up 10-6 at the 1:31 mark of the third quarter, the game was in the balance. It then rested on a crew that hadn’t failed all day: the defense. Doug Hogue and the unit then trotted onto the field to try to make a big stop again. From the sidelines, SU linebackers coach Dan Conley flexed his biceps in order to send in the signal for the goal line defense. But it wasn’t about brawn on this day for Syracuse. Rather, a lack of brains at times. SU defensive tackle Jay Bromley was whistled for an offsides — one of nine SU penalties — that put the ball on the two. A play later, Jordan Todman was in the endzone. From there, it unraveled further. The reliable punter who gave SU its biggest offensive play of the game (thanks to a 36-yard SU gain when UConn’s Nick Williams fumbled on a punt return) soon failed too. Rob Long shanked a 14-yard punt. The specialists were in on the little mistakes as well. And the ‘we’, not the ‘I’, had to take the brunt of the blame. Said Pugh: ‘That’s not how we should be playing football.’ [email protected] Published on November 20, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse shakes slow start to blow out Adrian, 84-35, in final scrimmage

first_imgBy the time Adrian guards took their eyes off Syracuse defenders and the ball they were flinging around the perimeter, the final seconds of the shot clock were ticking away.It wasn’t that the Bulldogs forgot to shoot, just that too often scoring was an afterthought to not losing possession. SU’s poor shooting allowed its Division III opponent to stay within striking distance of the Orange in the first half. But No. 23 Syracuse’s final preseason game ultimately devolved into a full-court physical mismatch and learning experience, which SU won 84-35 in front of 7,680 in the Carrier Dome on Monday night.“It doesn’t get frustrating to go on the court and think we’re better than anybody because that’s the mindset that we should have when we play against this team, Duke, North Carolina, it doesn’t mater who we play against,” freshman point guard Kaleb Joseph said. “We should always go in thinking that we’re going to win and that we are the best team.”Rakeem Christmas didn’t have to jump to block shots. Adrian’s tallest player was 6 feet, 5 inches. Open shots were easy to come by for the Orange. Simple perimeter passing stretched the Adrian defense. But for much of the game, Syracuse simply wasn’t making its shots.In a two-minute span of the first half, five Syracuse players combined to take and miss seven shots, including a Ron Patterson layup, and five SU players also combined to snag six offensive rebounds. The Orange scored just three points in that time but led 15-6 after a pair of Chris McCullough free throws. Monday’s test was mental more than anything.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We knew that we were bigger than them and more skilled,” junior guard Trevor Cooney said. “But you got to come out and you got to come ready to play, no matter who you’re playing you got to come out ready. And if not it could be a close game and you never know what’s going to happen.”SU’s shooting struggles were reflected in Cooney’s game. At halftime, he was shooting 2-of-7, 28.6 percent from the field. The Orange led 37-24 and it was after shooting 12-of-41, 29.3 percent, from the field.But 58 seconds into the second half, Christmas punched away a Curtis Gordon shot. Seconds later, Adrian was whistled for its fourth of sixth shot clock violations in the game. Cooney hit his first of two 3s in the game on the next possession from just inside the right wing to give SU a 41-24 lead.Two more Adrian shot clock violations, 10 minutes and 19 more Syracuse points followed before Adrian got a point. It was a free throw.“Well we made a couple shots, we had a couple improvements,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “… Second half we just made some more shots. That’s all.”Boeheim continued to shuffle through his nine-deep lineup. Chinonso Obokoh, recovering from a right thigh tear, was the only SU player who played less than 20 minutes, playing 11. And no one other than Joseph and Tyler Roberson — who played 27 — played more than 25.The uncontested shots that the Orange had clanked in the first half began to fall. When they didn’t, SU could count on breakaways against a team that barely had time to spot the rim.As the game drained away, the Carrier Dome crowd stopped celebrating blocks. Syracuse finished with 10 and the blocks more closely resembled kills in a volleyball match. In the final five minutes, as a game that Adrian never led ticked away, the loudest cheers went up for McCullough’s layup with 4:24 remaining. Syracuse led 76-29. There was nothing left for SU to win in the game — besides free tacos for anyone with a ticket.“I think it wasn’t too hard to manage the game tonight,” Jospeh said. “I think we got a lot of great shots and guys were aggressive, so this wasn’t really too tough.” Comments Published on November 10, 2014 at 9:07 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse to beat Virginia Tech

first_imgPhil D’Abbraccio (17-4): Syracuse 71, Virginia Tech 61No more freebiesVirginia Tech still strokes it well from 3-point range — to the tune of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s third-best percentage — so its success from deep against SU the first time was no fluke. But the only reason the Hokies were a buzzer-beating 3 away from topping the Orange was because SU missed 10 second-half free throws. With the exception of Syracuse’s loss to Miami, SU’s been better than that from the charity stripe. No breakdown from that spot this time around will outweigh the fits Rakeem Christmas and Co. are going to cause for VT.Jesse Dougherty (17-4): Syracuse 72, Virginia Tech 58Not this time aroundThis is the same Virginia Tech team that Syracuse met in Blacksburg earlier in its conference schedule — unable to guard Rakeem Christmas and do much else but shoot the 3. Except this Orange team, which lost by 10 to North Carolina despite scoring 82 points eight days ago, has come a long way on the offensive end. That said, the Hokies won’t have a shot to come back in this one, even if it gets hot late in the second. This time, SU has a cushion worthy of sleeping on down the stretch.Jacob Klinger (18-3): Syracuse 67, Virginia Tech 58Technically poorVirginia Tech can and will rain some 3s. They do it to the best teams in the conference and the country. But the Carrier Dome air isn’t kind to perimeter-dependent teams and the Hokies’ relationship with the 3-ball is like that of a freshman desperately hanging onto their long-distance significant other. VT’s bound to make the game close and uncomfortable before ultimately ending in heartbreak. Good for Syracuse, though.

Johnson wins NCAA singles championship

first_imgAfter leading the USC men’s tennis team to an NCAA title for the third year in a row, junior Steve Johnson claimed his own title as the 2011 NCAA singles champion.Winner · Junior Steve Johnson defeated Tennesse’s Rhyne Williams to capture his first NCAA individual title. Johnson became the first Trojan to capture the singles crown since Cecil Mamiit in 1996 and the 12th in USC history to do so. – Summer Trojan file photo Johnson defeated Tennessee’s Rhyne Williams on Monday at Stanford’s Taube Stadium, his 35th consecutive singles win.The first set was close, with Williams taking the lead, pulling away during the first game after a strong start.By the second set, Johnson took charge and dominated the final two sets, leaving no doubt who the best player on the court was.“When I got off that game to go up 2-0 in the third, I was going to do anything it took to hold on,” Johnson said. “I was fortunate enough to hold and hold on the sunny side [of the court] which has been tough all day. Then I was fortunate enough to get that break at 4-1.”Williams had defeated Johnson 1-6, 6-1, 6-4 during the ITA National Indoor Championship in November.The final match marked Johnson’s fourth title match this month.“I still [have] no words to describe this week and the team and now this individual [title],” Johnson said. “It hasn’t sunk in yet and I don’t think it’ll sink in for a while.”The last Trojan to win the NCAA singles title was Cecil Mamiit in 1996. Johnson became the 12th Trojan to win the title.“That court was good to us this week,” said USC coach Peter Smith. “It’s indescribable.”Johnson became USC’s first to win both the team and singles championships in the same year since Joaquin Loyo-Mayo in 1969, and the first player to do so since 2004.last_img read more

Auburn players suggest Georgia paid off 5-star WR George Pickens after commitment flip

first_imgMORE: Following National Signing Day’s biggest movesPickens was committed to Auburn for more than 500 days, so naturally Auburn fans and players were upset by the news. But a couple of players went a little further, seemingly suggesting Georgia paid Pickens in order to make the flip happen.In screenshots captured by Saturday Down South’s Connor O’Gara, we see defensive lineman Coynis Miller hint that Auburn needs to start writing checks or keep losing out on top talent. (Twitter) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/69/1b/auburn-player-screenshot-ftr_1ssoy3anv7yxl1xh3bqyi69c46.png?t=-1010757024&w=500&quality=80 In a somewhat surprising move, five-star 2019 recruit George Pickens — the No. 24 prospect in the country, No. 4 receiver and No. 1 player in the state of Alabama by the 247Sports Composite — announced he was flipping his commitment from Auburn to Georgia on National Signing Day.“Every year, we usually know what’s going to happen, but this is one came a little bit out of left field,” 247Sports.com writer Barton Simmons said about the move. “High-profile kid commits to a team that we weren’t necessarily monitoring significantly as a program that was going to steal him. What a pick up for Georgia.” Receiver Anthony Schwartz simply tweeted an emoji of a money bag after the announcement was made. Both players have since deleted their tweets.But Schwartz did leave this tweet up, which seems to be a subtweet regarding Pickens’ decision. Just know we know— Anthony Schwartz OLY (@anthony_flash10) February 6, 2019A Twitter user — and Georgia fan — responded with a crying baby GIF, to which Schwartz responded, “Y’all when (Justin) Fields left…” The follow-up tweet seemingly confirms Schwartz’s other tweet was regarding Pickens, even though he didn’t specifically mention him.As for Pickens, this is a pretty big pick up for Georgia. He is the second five-star prospect from the state of Alabama to commit to the Bulldogs this recruiting season.“I just felt like it was the right place for me, plus coaching-wise knowing that Kirby Smart is always going to be up for a national championship,” Pickens told reporters about his decision. “Georgia has always been the No. 2 school behind Auburn. It wasn’t an easy decision. Probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life.”last_img read more

Wellington resident Lori Phelps said there were not enough takers. There were 28 people who signed up for the 54 seat charter bus for the final regular season game between Wellington and Ulysses on Friday night.Ulysses is a four hour and 40 minute trip or 253 miles one way. Wellington is still in the district hunt and can still make the playoffs with a win in Ulysses and Rose Hill victory over Mulvane.“I think if we had won at Mulvane we might have had more interest, but maybe not,” Phelps said. People who paid for the trip can pick up their money at the high school today or get with her at the freshman/JV game tonight against Mulvane.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

More Sports In Brief

first_imgColombia vs Brazil for Chapecoense victims RIO DE JANEIRO (AP): Colombia and Brazil will play a friendly match on January 25 to raise money for the victims of the air crash last month that killed 19 players from Brazilian club Chapecoense. The match is set for Rio de Janeiro’s Engenhao stadium, which was the venue for athletics during the Olympics. Brazil’s team will be composed only of players with local clubs and will not include stars like Neymar who play in Europe. The plane carrying the Chapecoense players crashed just outside Medellin, Colombia, as they headed to play Colombian club Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana, Latin America’s No. 2 club tournament. Also on January 25, Chapecoense will play their first match since the disaster, facing Brazilian club Joinville in a national tournament. That match will be played at Chapeco’s stadium in southern Brazil. Judo champ fails to show up for sexual assault case VIENNA (AP): Legal authorities in Austria still had no clue on Peter Seisenbacher’s whereabouts yesterday, a day after the two-time Olympic judo champion was supposed to stand trial for the alleged sexual assault of two young girls he was coaching in the early 2000s. The regional criminal court and state prosecution in Vienna said they haven’t heard from Seisenbacher since he failed to show up for the start of his trial on Monday. The case has been adjourned. His lawyer, Bernhard Lehofer, said he spoke to Seisenbacher “a few days ago,” but had failed to contact him since. Seisenbacher is currently head coach of the Azerbaijan judo team. According to state prosecutors, the alleged abuse took place in Vienna between 1999 and 2004, when the two girls were still under 14. The women filed charges against their former coach in 2013. Seisenberger is alleged to have sexually assaulted one of the girls in 1999, when she was 11, and then abused her on multiple occasions until 2002. Also, he allegedly sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in 2004. Additionally, he has been charged with the attempted assault of a 16-year-old pupil while at a training camp in Croatia in 2001.last_img read more

Why was the President missing from the oil & gas summit

first_imgDear Editor,I watched the news reports pertaining to the recently-held oil and gas summit at the Marriott Hotel last week and could not help but notice the absence of our Head of State, President David Granger. I read the ideas and concerns coming out of the discussions and searched to read what our President had to say about the event. I later learnt that President Granger never made the event.I thought this was strange that at our first-ever oil and gas summit dealing directly with this new wealthy, nation-changing industry, the leader of our country was nowhere to be seen. I am very surprised that the President did not attend the event. In fact, I would like to know why President Granger did not attend the summit. I would hate to think that the President allowed someone to give him such poor advice or even worse, he chose on his own not to go, at a time when Guyana is making baby steps toward this new and intriguing shift.Mr President, why did you, the face of Guyana’s leadership, not attend the oil and gas summit?Sincerely,Winston Marslast_img read more

Linden residents call for removal of equipment

first_imgIllegal mining in Demerara RiverWeeks after an alleged illegal mining operation was unearthed in the Demerara River, residents of Linden have joined in calls being made by officials to remove the two draggers which were placed at Watooka, Mackenzie, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).The operators of the equipment were instructed by Police to remove them until relevant documentation is provided; however, Chairman of Region 10 Renis Morian indicated that this was not done.To date, Morian noted, the miners have not produced an Environmental Impact Assessment, which he reiterated is a necessity for such activities.Residents and officials, including Chairman of the Linden Chamber of Industry Commerce and Development (LCICD) Victor Fernandes have since expressed concern over mining activities in the region’s waterways, citing health and environmental risks as reasons for their disapproval. Fernandes said while development is necessary, it must not be at the expense of the people.“As the voice of the Private Sector… our concern majorly is environmental, which is everybody’s concern. The environmental issues are genuine concerns for us and I think members of this community, we would like to know what are the environmental considerations in the first place in terms of issuing licences,” Fernandes told the media.Linden resident Gomar Wilson said he is dissatisfied with the situation, noting that if it continues, the people will take action. As such, he has issued calls for the equipment to be removed, noting that some residents are not in support of the mining activity.Wilson added that if it is not removed by the end of the month, there will be consequences. Another resident, Oscar Hector cited health concerns, noting that residents, including those in Indigenous communities depend on the river’s water for their livelihood.Taxi driver Robert Greene in voicing his concerns believes environmental laws and procedures should be followed as it relates to mining in the Demerara River.He further stated that if miners are to come into the community, they must get clearance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and if such is not done, then the operations can be deemed as a violation.Meanwhile, Divisional Manager of the Guyana Water Inc (GWI) Rawle Friday explained that should there be any water mining mishaps, approximately 18,000 residents who depend on the water system can be adversely affected.Friday said the GWI would have taken interest in the mining activities, given the risks of contamination.Further, he added that in Linden, there are three water treatment plants which extract water from the Demerara River and there is no capacity to deal with contamination caused by harmful chemicals. These plants, he noted, serve around 18,000 people collectively.Officials have already noted that residents, mainly in Indigenous communities along the river, stand to be affected by the mining operation. Already, there is some amount of activities occurring in the river.A number of persons, including nine Brazilians were questioned and released by Police in connection with the activity which was shutdown weeks ago by Police and regional officials.The Regional Chairman noted that upon inspecting documents presented by the miners, he realised that some of the Brazilians were overstaying their time in Guyana which by itself is a criminal matter. In addition; those who were legal did not have the necessary work permits.last_img read more

Rashford says on right track despite lack of game time

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford scores the opening goal against Liverpool at Old Trafford on March 10, 2018 © AFP / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 12 – Marcus Rashford is confident his development will not suffer from a lack of game time after scoring twice in a 2-1 victory against Liverpool on his return to the Manchester United starting line-up.Saturday’s match at Old Trafford was Rashford’s first Premier League start since Boxing Day, and just his third in all competitions in 2018, but there was little evidence of rust as second-placed United put further distance between themselves and their bitter rivals. “In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that’s what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don’t react as well in other games,” said the 20-year-old.Rashford boosted his chances of earning another start against Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday — the first leg of the last-16 tie finished 0-0 — but he said he was doing most of his learning on the training pitch.“Right now, I’m probably not learning the most on the pitch,” said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russia.“In training is where I’m doing most of my learning. You have to take it into the game and today it worked.“Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important.”Rashford, who faces fierce competition for a starting spot from the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, said he did not feel the need to express his frustrations to manager Jose Mourinho.“He doesn’t have to (speak to me),” said the forward. “In football you are going to be up, you’re going to be down.“The most important thing is sticking together as a squad. Everyone turns up every day for training, we all work hard, we all do the necessary things.“We are all in it together. Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team.”Fellow academy graduate Lingard, who had to bide his time at Old Trafford before making an impact, backed his friend to succeed.“It’s good that you can be around him to have a laugh and reassure him that it’s going to come good and that if he gets a chance he will perform, and he has done that today,” he said.“It’s a big club with big players and for players like me and Marcus it’s going to be tough to start every game but once you are on the pitch you have got to make an impact and maybe next game you will be playing. But you’ve got to always work hard, and he does.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Sarcoma cancer; signs and symptoms to look out for

first_imgJuly is Sarcoma Cancer Awareness Month, so the Public Health Agency (PHA) is highlighting the key signs and symptoms of sarcoma cancer and is urging people to talk to their doctor if they think something is wrong.Sarcomas are rare malignant tumours that arise from transformed cells of the connective tissues such as muscle, fat, cartilage or bone. Around 8 out of 10 sarcomas occur in soft tissue although they can affect any part of the body.Dr Miriam McCarthy, Consultant in Public Health Medicine at the PHA, said; “There were 102 cases of sarcoma diagnosed in Northern Ireland in 2014. Cancers of the bone and connective tissue (sarcomas) are rare, but they can arise in any part of the body and there are many different types. The earlier a cancer is picked up, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely the treatment is to be successful.” “We know that teenagers and young adults do not often develop cancer but bone sarcomas can affect this age group and therefore it is worth knowing a few of the possible signs of a bone sarcoma.”These may include:• increasing, unexplained or persistent bone pain or tenderness, particularly pain at rest (and especially if not in the joint);• swelling over the affected part;• reduced movement;• if the cancer is near a joint, this can make it more difficult to move the joint and it can affect the movement of the whole limb;• if the affected bone is in the leg, it may cause a limp;• if the tumour is in the spine, it may press on nerves, causing weakness or numbness and tingling in the limbs;• broken bone (bone cancer is sometimes discovered when a bone that has been weakened by cancer breaks spontaneously or after a minor fall or accident). Dr McCarthy continued: “If you do experience these symptoms it is best to seek advice from your GP.”“With advances in treatment and care over recent years there is often a lot that can be done to tackle cancer when it appears, but early detection and treatment are essential. It is important to know your own body, look out for any changes and speak to your doctor if something isn’t right.”Francie Coyle from Paul’s Campaign said; “We set up Paul’s Campaign after losing our son Paul to sarcoma cancer at the age of 28 in 2011. Since Paul’s death, the campaign has been working to highlight awareness of the condition and impress upon all concerned the vital need for early detection and diagnosis. On Saturday 30 July at 3pm we are going to walk around the Derry/Londonderry city walls in yellow to highlight sarcoma cancer awareness.”“Paul’s Campaign would like to highlight that any suspicious lumps, bumps or swelling in any part of the body should be checked out by a GP. If the lump, bump or swelling increases or changes please go and get medical advice urgently, as early detection for sarcoma cancers is vital. It could save your life.”For further information on the walk on Saturday July 30th and about Paul’s Campaign you can visit  the Paul’s Campaign Facebook.The PHA has developed a comprehensive website which provides information about cancer signs and symptoms, explains what to do if you’re concerned, and signposts to recommended sources of support or further information.

first_imgA GARDA charged with harassing two women over a 18-month period has been arrested at his mother’s Donegal home.Donal Maguire, 38, was remanded on bail after he was arrested and charged with four counts of harassment at locations including two Dublin shopping centres.Gda Maguire, whose duties on the force have included security at the President’s official residence in the Phoenix Park, was remanded for six weeks at Dublin District Court for the directions of the DPP. The accused, a father-of-four with an address in north Dublin, is charged with harassing one of the women at Jervis Street Shopping Centre on February 7 and March 18 last.He is also charged with the same offence at Tesco, Clarehall Shopping Centre on dates between September 2012 and 2013.The last count of harassment is against a second woman, at North Great Clarence Street, Dublin 1 between February 1 and March 19 this year.The charges are under Section 10 of the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person Act.The Irish Independent reports that Detective Inspector Francis Sweeney told Judge Patricia McNamara he arrested the accused yesterday at 11.11am at Gda Maguire’s mother’s home in Bundoran, Co Donegal. He was brought to Mountjoy Garda Station where he was later charged on one count and had nothing to say after caution.Detective Inspector Anthony Howard said the accused was further charged with the remaining three counts at 11.30pm and made no reply.Judge McNamara initially said she was requiring a cash lodgement was €100, but Defence Solicitor Mattew Kenny said the accused was of limited means and not in a position to pay this. He said it would amount to a remand in custody for his client.“Given his profession, if he is remanded in custody today and unable to take up his bail, that would have dramatic consequences for him”, Mr Kenny said.He said the accused could barely afford his transport costs back to Donegal.The court was then told that the defendant was a serving member of the gardai but had been suspended from duties on three-quarters pay pending the outcome of the proceedings.He was married with four children but no longer living in the family home and had spent time in a psychiatric hospital. Neither of the alleged victims was his estranged wife.Judge McNamara decided that justice would not be done if the accused were kept unnecessarily in custody. She noted that the accused was innocent until proven guilty.Bail was granted in the defendant’s own bond of €200, with no cash lodgement but under “strict conditions”, including a ban on entering the city and county of Dublin except for court appearances, legal consultations and medical appointments.He is to reside with his mother in Bundoran and sign on three times per week at the local garda station.The accused is to have no contact whatsoever with the alleged victims. Det Insp Howard said there were “limited directions” from the DPP at this stage and he sought a long adjournment.The accused, wearing blue jeans, a navy jumper and green t-shirt underneath did not address the court during the hearing.Judge McNamara granted legal aid after hearing the defendant’s net weekly income was €150.He was remanded on bail to appear in court again on May 8.GARDA CHARGED WITH HARASSING WOMEN ARRESTED AT MOTHER’S DONEGAL HOME was last modified: March 29th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:arrestedbundoranDonal MaguiredonegalGardaiharassmentlast_img read more

Brand South Africa welcomes South Africa’s rankings in the 2018 World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business, the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), and the World Economic Forum Global…

first_imgBrand South Africa has noted and welcomes South Africa’s performance in the 2018 World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index (EDB) which sees the country’s ranking at 82nd out of 190 economies.The World Bank notes two areas of improvement in the EDB 2018, being: South Africa has made starting a business easier by reducing the time for online business registration, and the country improved the monitoring of electricity outages through recording data to monitor outages better.Commenting on the EDB results, Dr Petrus de Kock, the General Manager for Research for Brand South Africa said: “In terms of statistical score there is a marginal improvement of +1.37 points. While South Africa retains its over-all ranking at 82/190 this year, it is notable that there are some improvements in the following pillars of the index, being: starting a business – improve with two positions from 136 to 134; registering property – improve with one position from 107 to 106; trading across borders – improve with four positions from 147 to 143; getting electricity – improve with three positions from 112 to 109; and protecting minority investors – improve with one position from 24 to 23.”The World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Report is an indicator of the ease of doing business in various economies around the world. Released in October 2018, this year’s report presents data for 190 economies and aggregates information from ten areas of business regulation (such as starting a business, getting credit and enforcing contracts), to develop an overall ease of doing business ranking for each economy.This week also sees the release of the 2018 Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), with the report showing that South Africa has fallen from 6th to 7th position. The Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG) provides an annual measure of governance efficiency of African countries. The report covers 54 countries and base its analysis on 100 indicators that are drawn from 36 independent sources which together fall into 4 broad thematic categories: Safety & Rule of Law; Participation & Human Rights; Sustainable Economic Opportunity; and Human Development.“The strongest areas of performance for the country are in the Participation & Human Rights (4/54), as well as Sustainable Economic Opportunity (4/54) indicators. In the African – and Emerging Market contexts, governance plays a critical role in shaping the reputation of nations. It is for this reason that the IIAG provides critical insights regarding the profile of the South African Nation Brand.“Results contained in the IIAG 2018 is a cause for concern for the South African Nation Brand. And the implication is that urgent interventions are needed to turn the negative trends around, based on a robust existing governance regime in the context of a constitutional democracy,” adds Dr de Kock.Brand South Africa also noted South Africa’s declined performance in the 2018-2019 World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Index (WEF GCI). South Africa now ranks 61 out of 140 economies assessed in the annual survey. Dr de Kock explains that the WEF GCI 2018 presents a revised methodology to measure national competitiveness, and productivity in the context of the fourth industrial revolution.De Kock said: “In a major step change from its long established methodology that underpins the GCI, the 2018 edition of the index introduces a range of new concepts and attributes geared to measuring competitiveness, and ultimately productivity, to respond to the challenges of the time.  Being agile and capable to adapt to technological change and innovation, is critical to productivity and survival in a period of rapid change.“Of the original 98 indicators that informed the GCI, 34 have been retained, and 64 new indicators introduced. And based on the new WEF GCI methodology it is clear that South Africa still ranks extremely well in terms of: Market size, Finance System, and Innovation Capability.”South Africa’s national strengths can be found in the Finance System ranking 18th, it’s Market Size at 35th, with strong performance in Business Dynamics at 56th, the Labour Market at 55th (which looks much more promising than rankings achieved through the previous methodology), with a relatively good ranking for Economic Stability at 57th.  In the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution it is notable that South Africa ranks 46th for Innovation Capability.last_img read more

The Wonder of Wheat

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Emily UnglesbeeDTN Staff ReporterROCKVILLE, Md. (DTN) — It was another record-setting year for the National Wheat Yield Contest, which announced its 2019 winners Tuesday. Three winners topped 200 bushels per acre (bpa), with Rick Pearson of Buhl, Idaho, gleaning top yield honors with a 211.59-bpa irrigated winter wheat entry.Close behind him was Marc Arnusch of Keenesburg, Colorado, whose irrigated winter wheat field reached 210.52 bpa, and Phillip Gross, whose irrigated winter wheat field in Warden, Washington, hit 200.48 bpa.DTN/Progressive Farmer is the official media outlet of the contest, which is sponsored by the National Wheat Foundation.This year, the results of the annual competition cast a spotlight on the widely varying wheat-growing regions of the U.S.First, there is Pearson, who, from the rich, river-fed soils of his southern Idaho farm, grew a field of densely packed, soft white winter wheat bursting with nearly 212 bushels per acre.Then there is Shawn Kimbrell, who coaxed 70.93 bushels per acre from a hard red winter wheat variety on his dryland soils in the semi-arid High Plains of Texas, where wheat is more often forage for livestock than award-winning grain.Two completely different yields, yet two wheat contest winners.Pearson won the contest’s Bin Buster Award for irrigated wheat this year, which recognizes the highest-yielding irrigated wheat entry. Kimbrell won first place in the dryland winter wheat category for the highest above-average wheat entry — his field was 373% above his county’s five-year average of 15 bpa.Wheat has long been an everyman’s crop. It has the reputation of growing wherever you put it, with whatever you give it. The National Wheat Foundation’s annual wheat yield contest wants to recognize that, while also pushing growers to ask more of the tough, versatile grain crop.“My concern has long been that wheat genetics are outstripping the management ability of the average wheat farmer,” said Steve Joehl, director of the wheat contest. “But not these winners. They get it — they understand wheat’s potential.”For the first time, the contest now recognizes two tiers of winners — high-yield winners and winners who produce the highest above-average yields for their region. It also recognizes two overall winners for the highest-yielding irrigated and dryland wheat, called Bin Buster awards. Here are 2019’s Bin Buster and First Place winners:— BIN BUSTER IRRIGATED WINNER: Rick Pearson, Buhl, Idaho: 211.59 bpa, AgriPro SY Ovation.— BIN BUSTER DRYLAND WINNER: Tom Duyck, Forest Grove, Oregon: 191.66 bpa, OSU Rosalyn.— FIRST PLACE, HIGH YIELD, IRRIGATED WINTER WHEAT: Marc Arnusch, Keenesburg, Colorado: 210.52 bpa, WB 4418.— FIRST PLACE, HIGH YIELD, DRYLAND WINTER WHEAT: Doug Stout, Genesee, Idaho: 181.93 bpa, WB Keldin.— FIRST PLACE, HIGH YIELD, IRRIGATED SPRING WHEAT: Derek Friehe, Moses Lake, Washington: 180.77 bpa, WB 9668.— FIRST PLACE, HIGH YIELD, DRYLAND SPRING WHEAT: Trevor Stout, Genesee, Idaho: 111.13, WB 9668.— FIRST PLACE, ABOVE-AVERAGE YIELD, DRYLAND WINTER WHEAT: Shawn Kimbrell, Sunray, Texas: 70.93 bpa (372.87% above county avg), WB Winterhawk.— FIRST PLACE ABOVE-AVERAGE YIELD, DRYLAND SPRING WHEAT: Derrick Enos, Baker, Montana: 94.95 bpa (239.11% above county avg), LCS Trigger.See full details on the winners here: https://wheatfoundation.org/….This year, the contest received 397 initial entries, up 25% from last year. The contest finished with 154 final harvested samples, down slightly from last year and a sign of the historically challenging environmental conditions of 2019, Joehl said.“It tells you as the season progressed, the year got very hard in some wheat-production areas and farmers didn’t follow through with harvesting the plot entry,” he said. “Especially in the Northern Plains — it was just so wet. There are some farmers still trying to harvest spring wheat there.”Those final harvested samples were run through a laboratory analysis as part of the contest’s quality component, first introduced in 2018. Only Grade 1 and Grade 2 wheat samples are eligible to place in the contest, which trimmed the final competitors down by 11 to 143. The lab also tests other quality factors like protein, test weight, falling weight and hardness.The contest’s three yields over 200 bpa come just one year after Washington grower Gross first breached that barrier in the 2018 contest with a 202-bpa yield. Joehl is hopeful that these yield gains prove the contest is pushing growers to compete their way into optimum wheat production systems.“There’s a systems gap between the average-yield-producing farmers and these top-end-yielding contest winners,” he said. “That’s the information we have to spread. If you want to make wheat productive, you have to manage it as intensively as corn — maybe more intensively.”While geography and resources vary widely among the contest winners, certain management factors emerge as integral: water availability, fertilizer applications (calibrated just right for each field’s yield potential), carefully timed pesticide applications and scouting — lots of scouting.“I never go a day that I don’t see my farm,” said Texas’ Kimbrell. “I heard a quote once — ‘The best fertilizer you can put on a crop is a farmer’s shadow’ — and I thought that was perfect. If you don’t go out and see your fields every week, you can’t provide what it needs in a timely manner.”Arnusch, whose irrigated soft white winter wheat field in Colorado yielded 210.52 bpa, pulls tissue samples throughout the growing season, trying to create an on-farm database showing how nutrient levels affect the growth, development and quality of the wheat.Pearson’s top-yielding field in Idaho went in behind a potato crop, so the soil was brimming with leftover fertility, he noted. But in the springtime, it got another dose of nitrogen, herbicides, fungicides and a plant growth regulator that thickened the stalk and helped it stay standing until harvest.The result of this intensive management isn’t just high-yielding wheat, it’s also high-quality wheat, Joehl noted. Protein levels in hard red winter wheat entries were consistently high, with most ranging from 11% to 13%, despite towering yields. Most of the hard red spring wheat entries yielded protein levels ranging between 13% and 17%.“We need to start changing our thought process toward growing more high-quality wheat and — even more importantly — understanding what that quality is and being able to communicate it to the end user,” said Arnusch. His farm has recently started adding value to their wheat operation by growing some wheat acres to supply Colorado’s celebrated craft beer industry.Above all else, wheat must be profitable. With low commodity prices, a global glut of wheat and record-low wheat acreage in the Great Plains, profit margins are a top concern — even among contest winners.Pearson treats his wheat acres the same, contest entries and all. In fact, his winning contest entry lay within 65 acres that averaged an overall yield of 191 bpa. “It was some of our best ground,” he notes. “I drove by it every day, but I never dreamed it was that good.”The only input Arnusch’s winning wheat field received that his other acres didn’t was the addition of ultra-filtered liquid manure from a nearby dairy. But all his other wheat fields get the same careful nutrient application, pesticides, scouting and sampling treatment, he noted.For growers in less-fertile climes, less is more. Kimbrell believes the most influential and profitable practice on his no-till Texas operation is letting each acre rest one out of every three years. Each growing season, one-third of his fields grow wheat, one-third grow cotton, and another third lay fallow. “Everybody talks about wheat not being profitable, but I disagree,” he said. “I’ll make more money off growing wheat on one-third of my acres than I would farming the whole thing every year.”The contest is building a valuable database for the industry, as wheat yields and quality results are gathered along with the contestants’ wide range of management practices each year, Joehl noted. He hopes that, someday, this trove of agronomic insights will push generations of wheat growers to discover new and more profitable ways to grow high-quality wheat.For some, the contest is already doing that.“Our approach to this wheat yield contest isn’t one of coffee-shop bragging rights,” explained Arnusch. “It’s putting our management style up against the very best in the industry and learning from it. I’ve drawn a lot of good information and thought processes from other winners in past years. It helps me try to think about the crop differently than I ever have before.”Read more about the contest here: https://wheatfoundation.org/….Emily Unglesbee can be reached at [email protected] her on Twitter @Emily_Unglesbee(PS/AG/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Stuart Law says no to Pakistan coaching offer

first_imgFormer Australia batsman Stuart Law has turned down an offer to coach Pakistan, expressing his inability to join the team immediately.The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which zeroed in on Law, said it will try to convince the Australian or would pick between Englishman Andy Moles and former Australia batsman Dean Jones. (Shahid Afridi demands overhaul of Pakistan’s domestic circuit)”Yes there are hurdles in the way of signing on Stuart Law as head coach although he is our first choice for this position,” PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan told PTI.”He had applied for a coaching position with us but he has now conveyed he is more interested in a consultant’s position and that he wouldn’t be able to join the team immediately,” Khan said.Law, a former Australian Test batsman, is already signed up by Cricket Australia as a batting consultant for the tour to Sri Lanka from July to September and apparently he has told the PCB he is also not available when Pakistan tour Australia in November-December this year.Khan admitted that finding the right person for the job had become a tedious task for the board.He also confirmed that the board of governors unanimously picked Law as the first choice and Moles as second choice.”We are now also talking to Moles and Jones although the board of governors had some reservations over some candidates,” the PCB chief said.A reliable source in the board told PTI that the PCB was uncertain about signing Moles, 55, as yet because of his history as coach with teams like Kenya, Scotland, Afghanistan and New Zealand.advertisement”What is of concern to us is that Moles left or had to leave coaching assignments with Kenya, Scotland, New Zealand and Afghanistan due of disagreements or discord with their boards or players,” the source said.The PCB chief said negotiations were going on with prospective candidates and a final decision should be taken in the next two to three days.”We want the new coach to join the team before the tour to England from next month. Once the head coach is appointed we will also finalise the rest of the support staff with him,” he added.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

The Gatecrashers

first_imgLiverpool, with its confident dispatch of Villarreal, have crashed the Spanish party.Never before have two European finals in the same season been contested by clubs from only one country. It would have been a feat to underscore Spanish supremacy, the strength in depth that football fans, particularly those in thrall to the percussive English Premier League, don’t typically associate with a league in which the two leading clubs appear to occupy some astral plane. (Though in recent seasons Diego Simeone’s cussed Atletico side has gloried knocking in pulling them into the mud, knocking those haloes askew.)Impressive as Spanish teams are — able, as Atletico showed against Bayern Munich, to defend with resolve and vigour just as they are to attack with the adroit short passing and educated technique for which they are famous — we should be grateful to Liverpool. European competition shouldn’t be reduced to a domestic squabble. Until 2014, no two teams from the same city had reached the final of the European Cup or Champions League. It has now happened twice in three seasons. Milan — a city with two great clubs of its own — will host Real Madrid and their neighbours Atletico in the Champions League final on May 28 in a reprise of the final two years ago in Lisbon.To have to watch Sevilla chase their third successive Europa League win against Villarreal on May 18 would have been like watching the undercard to the main event, two lesser-known boxers from the same gym slugging it out before the big boys take to the ring. Instead, we now have two European finals to savour. One featuring two clubs that are anathema to each other: the glistening, preening Real Madrid, flaunting its trophies (this could be their 11th European Cup win, their closest challengers are AC Milan with seven) and establishment bona fides taking on their self-consciously ‘working class’ city rivals. It is a final that promises all the nervous energy, the claustrophobic strife, of a couple who have lived for too long with each other but cannot separate because they know no other way of life. The other final features teams that come from two distinctive, prideful cities; teams that are defined, marked out, like the cities they represent, by their passion.advertisementIndeed, the Europa League final might prove to be the more watchable, the more attractive.More importantly, Liverpool, with an exacting, exciting run to the final, beating Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund (the game at Anfield, a 4-3 win for Liverpool, is a strong contender for game of the season) and Villarreal, has breathed new life into the competition. In England, the Europa League, has been treated with a strange disdain. Or perhaps not so strange, given the insular self-regard of English football and the financial rewards for finishing mid-table in the Premier League. It is difficult to win the Europa League — with its onerous travel, it’s weird Thursday night scheduling, and curious mix of heavyweights in lean times and competent if unheralded teams from European outposts — and most Premier League teams seem to have concluded that affecting indifference is easier than having to face up to not being good enough. The decision to award the winner of the Europa League a place in the Champions League has given the former a fillip. Should Liverpool win it, and qualify for the Champions League despite likely finishing out of the top six in the league, that should give the likes of Manchester United pause.Sevilla, of course, has been treating the Europa with the seriousness of purpose it deserves for a decade now, winning it a record four times. Liverpool have won it thrice, and another win, a ninth major European trophy, would see Liverpool equal Barcelona and Milan’s European hauls. Only Real Madrid has won more. That European record is what has kept Liverpool fans warm at night during two decades that has seen their domestic record eclipsed by Manchester United. Sevilla is probably the better team than Liverpool, but finals are treacherous affairs as Atletico Madrid will attest. Atletico, up to now, has enjoyed a marginally better season than Real. They have, in the last two rounds at least, been better than Real Madrid against significantly better opposition. They have beaten Barcelona and Bayern as opposed to an overmatched Wolfsburg and a becalmed Manchester City. But they’ve also lost their last two Champions League ties to Real, the final in 2014 and last year’s two-legged quarter final. They have had two heartbreaking defeats in European Cup finals. Surely, it will be third time lucky. Surely?advertisementAs for Liverpool, winning against Sevilla would be the culmination of a wonderful campaign. Sevilla is on the verge of winning the Europa League for an unprecedented third time but it’s an opportunity afforded by failure in the Champions League, albeit in a tough group including Juventus and Manchester City. The parachuting of third-placed teams from the Champions League into the Europa knockout rounds contributes to the devaluing of what was once, as the UEFA Cup, a superb competition. It’s probably too late to go back to the old format of three separate European competitions, one for league champions, one for teams that finish high up in their domestic leagues, and one for cup winners. There is too much money and prestige concentrated in the Champions League, too many teams that demand a global audience of armchair supporters. But wouldn’t it be great to have two fine European tournaments? To have the Champions League open to only the top two from all the European leagues, including those of Spain, England, Germany, and Italy? To have better teams in the Europa League and more intense competition?Never before has talent and money coalesced to so few clubs at the very top of the European game. It’s why the Champions League will remain bloated, to give the very richest clubs the best opportunities to get even richer. It is to Atletico’s enormous credit that they have managed to muscle into this cartel. And it is to Liverpool’s credit that they have found the energy and the will to turn another humdrum season into a potentially excellent one and along the way reminded us that there’s romance and glory to be had outside the Champions League.last_img read more

He needs time.”Scholes said: “When you assess the season so far, 14th tells you everything. It has not been good enough.”But we have to trust what Ole is doing.

Cocu: I’m not going to try to be like Lampard

There’s no buying just for buying. There always has to be an idea behind it.”I believe we have the potential to be in the top six again. And reaching the play-off final last season is one more experience for the players. Especially with a younger squad, you need those experiences.”Cocu won three Eredivisie titles in four years between 2014 and 2018 with PSV, while also claiming a KNVB Cup during his time as caretaker in the 2011-12 season.He was also an assistant manager to Bert van Marwijk in the Netherlands’ 2010 World Cup campaign, where they were beaten in extra-time in the final by Spain.last_img read more

Young Professionals Urged to Start Planning Early for Homeownership

first_img The Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ) is advising young professionals to start planning early for homeownership. The Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ) is advising young professionals to start planning early for homeownership.Speaking to JIS News recently, Assistant Environmental Planner at the entity, Zanetta Scott, said that having adequate funds for a house deposit continues to be a major deterrent to becoming a homeowner.As such, the entity is encouraging young people to explore financial products that will enable them to invest and save wisely for homeownership.“We often hear young professionals being encouraged to save for their pension, but, to add to that, we are also encouraging young persons to start saving for that house deposit once they start working,” she said.Senior Public Relations and Marketing Manager, Richard Jones, for his part, is advising young people who are able to purchase a home to act promptly as real estate appreciates quickly.He said that a single young professional earning between $150,000 and $200,000 per month should be able to afford a $6-million to $7-million home.“Buy now, buy as early as you can to avoid facing inflationary pressures; don’t wait if you can help it. Once you can afford something now, buy it, because a starter house isn’t necessarily the house you will retire in,” he said.He noted that being a young homeowner offers benefits such as lower mortgage rates with longer payment plans and more predictable housing costs.Mr. Jones told JIS News that come 2019, the HAJ will be developing three new housing schemes that will be attractive for young professionals.

EU Regulators to Fine Car Carrier Majors for Rigging Bids

first_imgzoom Car carrier majors are reportedly facing a new wave of sanctions from the EU regulators for their involvement in price-fixing schemes, Reuters informed citing undisclosed sources.The companies that are likely to be fined are Japanese shipping majors Nippon Yusen KK (NYK), K Line (Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd) and Mitsui O.S.K Lines (MOL), along with Norwegian Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics ASA (WWL), among others.A ruling is expected in the following weeks, the report said.The decision is believed to be related to an investigation launched back in September 2012, when EU Commission officials raided the premises of several providers of maritime transport services for cars and construction and agricultural rolling machinery.Inspections took place in several EU member states in coordination with the US and Japanese competition authorities.The commission said at the time that it had reasons to believe that the companies concerned were involved in cartels and restrictive business practices.The Japanese trio confirmed in their respective annual reports for 2017 that they are being investigated in the EU and other overseas jurisdictions on suspicion of violation of antitrust law in relation to transportation of cars and other cargoes.In addition, class action lawsuits have been launched in the U.S. against the three companies and some of their respective overseas subsidiaries.As disclosed, the financial impact of the lawsuits is yet to be determined.Car carrier giants have been involved in several legal proceedings over the past few years. The most recent ones include a class action complaint launched before the United States Federal Maritime Commission by vehicle shippers in May 2016.Companies targeted by the complaint were NYK Line, Mitsui O.S.K., K Line, followed by World Logistics Service (U.S.A.), Eukor Car Carriers, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, CSAV, Höegh Autoliners, Autotrans and Nissan Motor Car Carrier Corp.Complainants allege that the companies violated provisions of the Shipping Act of 1984, because they conspired on price-fixing in the U.S. and elsewhere for the import and export of new, assembled vehicles to and from the U.S.The class action followed a similar investigation launched by Brazilian authorities earlier that year under suspicion that nine car shipping companies were involved in “an international cartel”, as they were linked to collusion on customer allocation and price fixing.Companies included in the investigation were K Line, NYK and Chile’s CSAV who agreed to cooperate in the investigation along with Grimaldi Group, Höegh Autoliners and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, Nissan Motor Car Carriers and MOL as well as Eukor Car Carriers.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

J’ai vraiment hâte de connaître les choix des élèves. » Chaque année, le comité de sélection du programme Hackmatack prépare une liste des livres canadiens sélectionnés à l’intention des jeunes lecteurs.

Riley O’Brien, une élève de 6e année de l’école Alderney, fait partie du club Hackmatack de son école depuis deux ans. Elle dit qu’elle s’est jointe au club parce qu’elle aime lire. « J’aime beaucoup presque tous les livres que j’ai lus au cours des deux dernières années, mais j’aime particulièrement les miniromans, a dit Riley. J’aime faire beaucoup de choses comme jouer dehors et aller au chalet, mais j’aime vraiment lire. » Chaque année en septembre, le ministère de l’Éducation envoie aux écoles primaires deux exemplaires de chaque livre en anglais choisi pour le programme du Prix littéraire Hackmatack – Le choix des jeunes. Les écoles du Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP) et les écoles qui offrent le programme d’immersion française précoce reçoivent également deux exemplaires de chaque livre en français.

Police in Ontario have now identified 2 of 3 people killed in

first_imgCOOKSTOWN, Ont. – Ontario Provincial Police say they have now identified two of three people killed in a fiery pileup on a highway north of Toronto.Police say the coroner has identified a mini-van driver who was killed in the 14-vehicle crash on Halloween night as 41-year-old Michael John Landry of Oshawa, Ont.OPP had earlier identified 37-year-old Benjamin Dunn of North Bay, Ont., who was driving one of the two fuel tankers involved in the collision, as one of the victims.Const. Lauren Ball said Wednesday that investigators were still working to positively identify the third victim.OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt has said the intensity of the fire was making it difficult for the coroner’s office to officially identify those who died in the crash.Police say the collision happened on Highway 400 near County Road 88 in Cookstown, Ont., when at least one truck slammed into vehicles slowing in the area because of an earlier collision.Two fuel tankers spilled thousands of litres of fuel on the road and the impact caused a fireball that sent motorists running for their lives.OPP commissioner Vince Hawkes, who just days before had sounded the alarm about fatal collisions caused by distracted truck drivers, said the collision could have killed many more people.“It’s a miracle that we don’t have 25 bodies down there,” Hawkes had said.Hawkes put the trucking industry “on notice” late last month, citing three recent collisions involving large commercial vehicles that killed a total of six people.The Ontario Trucking Association has said the industry is committed to road safety, noting that there has been a 66 per cent decrease in the fatality rate from large truck collisions between 1995 and 2014 despite a 75 per cent rise in large truck vehicle registrations.last_img read more

Survey US businesses add 215000 jobs in November the most in 12

Survey: US businesses add 215,000 jobs in November, the most in 12 months AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Dec 4, 2013 6:30 am MDT WASHINGTON – A private survey shows U.S. businesses last month added the most jobs in a year, powered by big gains in manufacturing and construction.Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that companies and small businesses added 215,000 jobs in November. And ADP said private employers added 184,000 jobs in October, much stronger than its initial estimate of 130,000.The ADP numbers cover only private businesses and often diverge from the government’s more comprehensive report. Last month, the Labor Department said private businesses added 212,000 jobs in October. The Labor Department will report on November job growth Friday.Still, the figure suggests that hiring remained healthy in November after picking up in the prior three months. Manufacturing and construction firms each added 18,000 jobs. That was the biggest gain for manufacturers since early this year.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said the figures show that employers shook off the partial government shutdown in October and kept hiring, despite a drop in consumer confidence. Moody’s helps compile the ADP data.“That’s very encouraging as we make our way into next year,” Zandi said.Other economists also said the hiring boost was a good sign, but noted that the ADP figures are not always a reliable guide to the government’s figure.“Take this with a grain of salt, but if the direction is right, it is good news,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets.Many analysts noted that if Friday’s government report is as encouraging as the ADP figures, the Federal Reserve might be more inclined to reduce its monthly bond purchases when members meet later this month on Dec. 18 and 19.The Fed has been buying $85 billion in bonds each month to try to lower long-term interest rates and encourage more borrowing and spending.Employers of all sizes added jobs, the report found. And services firms added 176,000 jobs, the most in a year.The government says public and private employers have added an average of 202,000 jobs a month from August through October. That was up from an average of 146,000 from May through June.At the same time, growth picked up. The economy expanded at a 2.8 per cent annual rate in the July-September quarter. But analysts expect growth to slow in the current quarter to about a 2 per cent rate. read more

Security Council extends mandate of UN mission in Libya for three months

After months of negotiations, a UN-brokered agreement was signed in December 2015 in Skhirat, Morocco, on the formation of a unity government in Libya, consisting of the Presidency Council and Cabinet supported by the other State institutions, including the House of Representatives and State Council. UNSMIL was mandated in 2011 through a Security Council resolution to ensure, among other priorities, transition to democracy, promotion of the rule of law, protection of human rights, control of unsecured arms, and the building of governance capacity, following the revolution which toppled the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi.Meanwhile, in today’s resolution extending the mandate, the Council also requested that the UN Secretary-General report within 60 days following consultations with the Libyan authorities on recommendations for UNSMIL’s support to the next phases of the Libyan political transition process.In a press statement yesterday, the Security Council reiterated its support for the Libyan national unity government and renewed its call on UN Member States to end official contact with parallel institutions that claim legitimate authority, but are outside of December’s political agreement. read more

Square Enix reveals Dragon Quest X for Wii and Wii U

first_imgThere are only a handful of games that cause the Japanese to take days off work and queue all night. One of those games series is Dragon Quest, and Square Enix has just announced Dragon Quest X (official title: Dragon Quest X Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku) which is set to see a release next year.With Dragon Quest IX the game made an unexpected leap to a mobile platform in the form of the DS, but it worked and sold millions in its first weekend on sale. This time around Square Enix have decided to release on two platforms at the same time: the Wii and the Wii U. The main difference seems to be better visuals for Wii U owners, but otherwise the same game.The other big change is the focus on online play. DQX won’t be the typical JRPG we have come to expect from the series. Instead, the gameplay will require players go online, create a party with other players, and explore the world together. Importantly, Wii and Wii U players will inhabit the same online world making it possible for friends to play together regardless of what generation Nintendo hardware they own. The 3DS will also play a role, allowing for data exchanges and character transfers.What’s unclear at the moment is whether the game will carry a monthly charge. Based on an information page on the official Dragon Quest portal it looks like that may be the case as both price and a “usage fee” are featured, but with a “TBA” where the pricing should be.One final difference comes from the development of the game which is happening internally at Square Enix. On previous games development would be handled by another studio like Level 5, but fans should be glad to hear Yuji Hori, Koichi Sugiyama, and Akira Toriyama are all involved. The fact that Square Enix has a lot of experience developing the Final Fantasy MMOs makes this a sensible decision.Read more at AndriasangMatthew’s OpinionI’m sure there’s going to be more than a few Dragon Quest fans upset by the fact this game is effectively an MMO instead of a JRPG, but then you can understand why Square Enix decided to go down this route. One of the most popular games series in recent times has been Monster Hunter, which uses a similar feature of going online and forming a party. Add the popularity of such a gameplay system with the massive popularity of Dragon Quest and it makes sense to try it.Choosing the Wii also makes a lot of sense due to the massive installed user base. It also seems to be the easiest system to get an online game working on compared to other current gen consoles, plus the Wii U is going to be the first next-gen machine future proofing the popularity and availability to Dragon Quest X to a large extent.My only hope is that Square Enix either keeps the monthly subscription very low or makes it optional for certain extra features. I also wonder what chance, if any, this game now has of heading to Western markets. But then the Final Fantasy MMOs came West, so why not Dragon Quest?last_img read more

Powerful and everyday heroes honoured

first_imgFrom Australia’s most powerful Greeks to local heroes, the Australia Day awards have honoured six great Greek Australians for their outstanding work in the community. Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical and the advisor to former American President Bill Clinton has been honoured for his “distinguished service to international business through senior roles with multinational organisations, as a supporter of Australia-US educational and cultural relation and to the community”. Mr Liveris received the highest honour of the Greek Australian group and will now have the honour of putting an AO, Officer of the Order of Australia after his name. Two received the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to the Greek community, including former AHEPA president Stephen Manos and Angelo Notaras, also noted for his work with the Greek Orthodox Church. Mr Manos was quite surprised with his nomination after it didn’t come from the most likely culprits, AHEPA, but rather it came from a family friend. “I was very surprised because I didn’t know anything was in the wind,” he tells Neos Kosmos. At 78, he’s been part of AHEPA for 60 years, coming into the order at 18 and has held almost every job including the national presidency in 1964-1965 and in 2001-2002. “There isn’t anything that I haven’t covered,” he says with a laugh. In 2011 he received the AHEPA silver medal for his service to the order and during his time at AHEPA, he has seen the Greek community grow and develop. He still sees room for improvement to make the community more inclusive. “The Greek community now, not that it’s obsolete, we seem to be a bit fractured,” he says. “We’ve got about 400 different organisations involved in the Greek community. “I think one of the things that has set us back in the past is that we really didn’t have a community centre, it was very small and the new one now that they’re doing will have its benefits.” Mr Notaras was nominated for his outstanding work for the Greek community, particularly for the Kytherian community he has so lovingly supported in Australia. As a board member if the Kytherian Association since 2005, he has helped implement a comprehensive website that catalogues names, photos, recipes and maps of the island at kythera-family.net. He has also seen the publication of 13 books about the history of the Kytherans and their settlement in Australia. Also in honour of his fundraising work, he was awarded with the Gold Cross of St Andrew in 2003, the highest honour of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia. In service to our country, three Greek Australians were honoured with Police and Military awards. Sergeant Dimitrios (Jim) Bellos was honoured for his “outstanding dedication and commitment” in his 14 years in the Queensland Police Service, and received an Australian Police Medal. As cross-cultural liaison officer for the Metropolitan South Region, Sergeant Bellos deals with over 200 communities speaking over 150 languages and practising more than 130 religions. In his time his region has seen a significant decline in youth crime, with the police force saying Sergeant Bellos “is a real catalyst in breaking down barriers”. He was also a finalist for the Australian of the Year last year, and has been an Australia Day ambassador since 2010. Honoured by the Australian Navy, Commander John Stavridis Ran was singled out for “distinguished performance of duty in warlike operations as Commanding Officers HMAS Anzac on Operation SLIPER from June 2012 to January 2013”. Lieutenant Colonel John Terence Bouloukos was honoured by the Australian Army for his “dedication and logistic knowledge” in securing sustainment support of the Army’s land material capabilities. Out of the more than 900 people honoured, only 212 women received awards, with no Greek Australian women nominated. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Boom automobile un tiers des villes chinoises trop polluées

first_imgBoom automobile : un tiers des villes chinoises trop polluées Le ministère de l’Environnement chinois vient de publier son premier rapport sur l’impact des voitures sur la pollution. Son constat : un tiers des villes du pays ne remplissent pas les critères minima de qualité de l’air à cause du boom de l’industrie automobile. Les critères nationaux minima de qualité de l’air en Chine ne sont pas respectés par environ 37 villes. Le pays comptait, fin 2009, 170 millions de véhicules. Un chiffre en hausse de 9,3% par rapport à l’année précédente, souligne l’AFP. Le ministère de l’Environnement chinois ajoute que depuis 1980, il a été multiplié par 25.Les émissions des véhicules ont dépassé les 51 millions de tonnes l’an dernier, selon le rapport. Et les ventes automobiles en Chine ont atteint le niveau record de 13,64 millions d’unités l’an dernier.Le ministère de l’Environnement chinois explique vouloir s’engager à renforcer le contrôle de ces émissions et souhaite voir les constructeurs automobiles mettre les véhicules électriques ou hybrides en avant.

Capaldi Hints at Claras Christmas Surprise You May See Her Again

first_imgStay on target HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster Will she or won’t she? The Whoniverse has been debating for months whether Jenna Coleman will return as Clara Oswald in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.Well, Peter Capaldi may have just put an end to the rumors.Speaking at last week’s San Francisco Comic Con, the Twelfth Doctor suggested that fans “may” see the three-season companion again.In response to a young fan’s query about the fate of his fictional friend, Capaldi took a long pause, raising his famous eyebrows, giving a cheeky smile, and teasing the expectant audience.“I’ll see her again,” he said, pointing to himself with a devilish grin. “You may see her again, too.“But I won’t tell. It’d spoil things,” Capaldi added, before mumbling something unintelligible (probably “What can the BBC do, anyway? Fire me?”).“She’s still there. Everyone in Doctor Who is still there,” the Scotsman explained, signaling the universe’s great unknown.Whispers of Coleman’s homecoming began in April, when British tabloid The Mirror tipped the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey return of the First Doctor, played by David Bradley (reprising the role originated by William Hartnell).Lily Travers and Jared Garfield have already been confirmed to play original companions Polly and Ben, respectively; and the wonderful Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) is coming back. Why shouldn’t we hold out for a final goodbye from Clara?A second Mirror report in July propagated the rumor, which was also picked up by BBC Radio 2 presenter Steve Wright, who seemed stunned by the possibility.The assertion, however, has not yet been backed up by an announcement from the BBC.It’s not entirely out of the question: In 2009, David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor managed a final farewell to Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), and Karen Gillan came back as Amy Pond in a wig to bid her raggedy man (Matt Smith) adieu in 2013.Killed, resurrected, and departed in a stolen TARDIS at the end of season nine, Clara is now traveling through all of space and time, presumably with the immortal Ashildr (Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams). So you’d hope she could make a quick stop for an old mate.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Cost of Washington’s measles outbreak tops $1M

first_imgOLYMPIA — The cost of Washington’s measles outbreak has surpassed $1 million as more than 200 health-department staffers from the state and Clark County focus their efforts on the disease.As of Saturday, there were 65 confirmed cases of measles in Clark County, 47 of which were in children under 10 years old, according to the county’s Public Health department, which is also investigating one suspected case.DOH has spent approximately $614,000 on staff and supplies as of Tuesday, in addition to about $115,000 in other non-budgeted expenditures, according to state epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist, who expects the total response to eventually cost the state “well over a million dollars.”Meanwhile, Clark County Public Health has spent about $500,000 responding to the measles outbreak, bringing the statewide total over $1 million, says Dr. Alan Melnick, the county’s public health director.“This is taxpayer money for something that could have been completely, utterly preventable in the first place,” he told the Seattle Times.last_img read more

Criscito wants to retire in Genoa

Focus trial back on track after ruling on evidence

The trial proper in the Focus case was allowed to move forward again on Monday, after Nicosia criminal court ruled – in a trial within a trial – that certain evidence introduced by the prosecution was admissible.The defence had earlier argued that evidence obtained from Greece by Cypriot authorities was not acquired lawfully via the mutual judicial assistance protocol between the two countries. As such, they said, this evidence should not be admissible.The evidence in question relates to Greek national Michalis Zolotas, owner of Focus Maritime Corp and a key defendant in the proceedings.On Monday, the court rejected the defence’s motion.By unanimous decision, the three judges said the evidence in question had been obtained lawfully from Greece via mutual judicial assistance requests made by Cypriot law enforcement authorities.According to the court, the prosecution proved beyond a reasonable doubt that all the evidence in question was accounted for and properly documented in the mutual judicial assistance requests.The court noted that even if the evidence had not been obtained lawfully, it would still have admitted the evidence provided it were deemed relevant to the case and provided that the defendants’ right to a fair trial were not adversely affected.The decision allowed the prosecution to call to the witness stand CID sergeant Nicolas Foullidis, the officer in charge of the evidence related to the case.Foullidis had begun testifying in early May, but his testimony was interrupted when the defence raised its objection to the evidence, leading to the trial within a trial.On Monday, the defence objected anew when Foullidis tried to introduce as evidence a digital disk containing evidence.The CD was obtained from the Sovereign Base Areas, the court was told.The defence argued that the CD was not obtained lawfully.As such, the proceedings were interrupted, and will resume on September 7.Prosecutors claim that Focus Maritime Corp was the conduit for transferring €1m to a consultancy firm in Cyprus.The consultancy firm was owned by the daughter of then governor of the Central Bank Christodoulos Christodoulou. The prosecution’s case rests on the premise that the money was a sweetener to Christodoulou so he would green-light the 2006 takeover of Laiki Bank by Greek financier Andreas Vgenopoulos, now deceased.Laiki was shuttered in 2013.Vgenopoulos, chairman of Marfin Investment Group (MIG), was initially also on the charge sheet. His name was withdrawn when he died in November 2016.In addition to Zolotas and Christodoulou, defendants in the same case are Christodoulou’s daughter Athina, her ex-husband Andreas Kizourides, former Laiki official Michael Fole, and ΑC Christodoulou Consultants Ltd, MIG and Focus as legal entities.In a related issue, state attorney Andreas Aristides said on Monday that no evidence or documents related to the Focus case were destroyed in the fire that broke out at the Nicosia court complex back in February.Aristides told the Cyprus News Agency that, at the time of the fire, no evidence pertaining to the case had yet been submitted to the court and therefore none of this evidence was being stored in the building.As such, recent media reports claiming that Focus-related evidence was destroyed, were inaccurate.You May LikeMuama Instant TranslatorGenius Japanese Invention Allows You To Instantly Speak 43 LanguagesMuama Instant TranslatorUndoYoutube video by: PopMaltWhat it’s Like to Play Princess Belle at a Disney Theme ParkYoutube video by: PopMaltUndoCar NovelsNo One Buys These SUVs But They Are The Best On The MarketCar NovelsUndo Famagusta municipality says Varosha entry goes against UN regulationsUndoProperty owners price themselves out of the marketUndoCypriot ambassadors gather in Nicosia for annual briefingUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more

startling success stories have emerged from a few villages of this laggard state To encourage and incentivise people into using toilets a silent and innovative revolution hasbeen slowly brewing in some villages of its Deogarh and Jharsuguda districts – declared Open Defecation Free (ODF) under the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) Residents along with district officials here have not only focused on the number of toilets constructed but bolstered efforts to bring forth behavioural changes in people Creating ownership of toilets As per government statistics Odisha has a record low of 5489 percent sanitation coverage A staggering challenge which officials and volunteers in the state have often faced is to persuade communities to bring about developmental changes themselves break age-old habits of going to the toilet outside their homes One way of countering this was to make the lavatory their own and not merely a ‘product’ of government schemes A child in Kirtanpali village of Deogarh district in Odisha with a colourfully painted toilet Image courtesy Manish Kumar In 2017 members of the Lulang panchayat in Deogarh district began an innovative fight with the ‘My Toilet Campaign’ Residents of several villages were encouraged to decorate outer walls of their toilets with beautiful drawings What that did in effect was to create a sense of ownership over the toilets and inspire communities to actually use them "Toilets constructed under SBM were earlier misused by beneficiaries as they thought these were only products of another government scheme not to be utilised themselves Villagers used latrines as storehouses to keep cow dung firewood and fodder There was no ownership value" said Kumuda Satpathy a consultant for SBM in Deogarh who also started this campaign A subsidised amount of Rs 12000 and Rs 15000 (in case of SCs and STs) is given by the government to build toilets to individuals The central government’s share in the subsidy amount is Rs 9000 (75 percent) and the state gives out Rs 3000 (25 percent) A villager in Kirtanpali village of Deogarh district in Odisha with his colourfully painted toilet Image courtesy Manish Kumar Satpathy attributes Deogarh’s maidan ODF status primarily to innovations on the ground strict vigilance by volunteers and motivated ground workers helping people change their habits "Our plan had initially failed to kick-start It was in the remote Similihata village of Reamal block in Deogarh where we surprisingly found success Similihata became a model village for about 200 other hamlets after that" he added Anganwadi worker Padmini Pradhan from Similihata was the first to make ornate drawings of flowers and leaves on her toilet walls She soon noticed how this simple step boosted usage of toilets especially among children "The painted toilets soon became a hit among the kids They loved using these latrines Many households not only in Similihata but also in neighbouring villages replicated this idea and painted toilets en masse" said Pradhan She further added that in some other villages such asKirtanpali Deojharan Hariharpur Ganuribani Hrudapali Laxmipur and Gudeimara toilet ownership patterns improved substantially Locals began using their abandoned commodes Gram panchayat monitor Damarudhara Kumura also said that the exercise was being followed in about 200 other villages of Deogarh Padmini Pradhan who was the first in her vilage in Similhata to paint her toilet Image courtesy Manish Kumar "The idea became so popular that almost all toilets in my village now have painted walls" saidMalati Behera of Kirtanpali village ‘Remodelling’ toilets keeping diseases at bay Along with paintings another motivational measure used by Swachhagrahis (volunteers) was to alter the idea of a toilet being dirty to a unit that keeps infection and diseases at bay Unused latrines which were otherwise overgrown with bushes have now been adorned with flower pots on the outside The ‘Nigrani (oversight) Committees’ make sure that the toilet surroundings are kept clean and decorated "Our gram sabha had passed a resolution that anyone found defecating in the open will have to pay Rs 500 and a whistleblower will be paid Rs 250 per case Those found flouting norms will also be publicly shamed The oversight panel was roped in for vigilance There isn’t a single case of open defecation in our village now" said Jadumani Sahoo a member of the oversight committee at Kirtanpali A visit to Similihata also throws light on how children here have been made aware of personal hygiene Hand-washing after toilet usage and before consumption of food is something most kids here practice Not only that they also dispose of chocolate wrappers and other items into five big dustbins spread across the hamlet A concrete dustbin in Similihata village in Deogarh district of Odisha Image courtesy Manish Kumar Sunita Gop a Swachhagrahi said awareness measures were a result of collective efforts by villagers and gram sabha members "You can see how sanitation has led to fewer flies and mosquito breeding in the villages" she added Santosh Kumar Rout former sarpanch of Kirtanpali said several cases of diarrhoea typhoid and other communicable diseases have dwindled in the past one year "Changes on the ground are visible now Fewer children fall prey to deadly diseases and deaths" told Rout
