Five things we learnt from France’s win over Samoa

first_imgOver time: Charles Ollivon scores a try in the big win over Samoa. Photo: Getty ImagesCharles Ollivon replaced Loann Goujon early on and showed why he’s rated so highly in Toulon. Powerful and athletic, the 6ft 5in Ollivon is a strong ball-carrying loose forward, but he’s no turnover specialist. Nor is Damien Chouly, fit again after missing the Samoa match, while Kevin Gourdon and Kélian Galletier play more like opensides, but with just four caps between them they’re still learning about the rigours of Test rugby. That might mean a recall for Wenceslas Lauret, the flanker who played in all of last season’s Six Nations matches but lost his place to Gourdon when he missed the summer tour to Argentina because he was helping Racing 92 win the Top 14 title.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. France began their November with an impressive 52-8 defeat of Samoa, the first time they’ve hit a half-century of points since 2009. Now come the real Tests, with Australia and New Zealand visiting Paris on successive Saturdays. Gavin Mortimer reviews and previews…Wes wowsOne of the saddest sights during Philippe Saint-Andre’s reign as France coach was Wesley Fofana. The most gifted French threequarter of his generation was never able to reproduce his club form under PSA, not just because of the sterile, power-based game championed by the coach, but also because in four years he went through a succession of midfield partners – Rougerie, Fritz, Bastareaud, Mermoz and Fickou. For a season Fofana was even shunted out onto the wing, a mistake Guy Noves made last season for a couple of Six Nations matches.Middle man: Wesley Fofana finds a hole in Samoa’s defence. Photo: Getty ImagesThankfully he’s now back where he belongs, and with the powerful Remi Lamerat now alongside Fofana, France may have found the centre pairing to take them to the 2019 World Cup. Though Fofana stole the headlines with his superb creative display against Samoa, his understanding with Lamerat, and the ability to read each other’s games, was crucial.Hat-trick heroThe Fiji-born Virimi Vakatawa showed the full range of his talents in scoring a hat-trick of tries against Samoa. For his first score he showed neat footwork to step inside his markers, for his second he outpaced the cover and for the third he powered through his tackler.Three-piece sweet: Virimi Vakatawa scores his third try against Samoa. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat makes it one of the more remarkable of Test-match triples is that Vakatawa last played a game of 15s in March – in the Six Nations against England. He spent the summer playing sevens for France, and since September he has been based permanently at the French training centre at Marcoussis as he is contracted by the FFR and not a club. Bigger challenges lie ahead for Vakatawa but, as he showed against Samoa, he is a finisher par excellence.Trouble at ten Happy day: Virimi Vakatawa and his France team-mates celebrate. Photo: Getty Images LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img France won big against Samoa but do they need to up their game against Australia this week? A broken forearm suffered early in the second half has sidelined Francois Trinh-Duc until the new year. It’s also given Guy Noves a major headache. The man who replaced Trinh-Duc at fly-half, Jean-Marc Doussain, played well, but it was an armchair ride thanks to the dominance of his pack. The dilemma for Noves is to decide whether to keep faith with Doussain, or pick the man he called up on Monday – Camille Lopez.In form: Will Camille Lopez get a shot in the France No 10 jersey? Photo: Getty ImagesHe’s been in fine form for Clermont this season, having slimmed down in the summer and strengthened his kicking game under the guidance of Xavier Sadourny. Doussain has never started a Test match at fly-half and has suffered for several seasons from the strange French belief that nine and ten are more or less interchangeable. Lopez is an exception in this regard, a pure fly-half, and picking him would seem logical given that the likely centre pairing against Australia will be Clermont team-mates Wesley Fofana and Remi Lamerat with another Jaunard, Scott Spedding, at full-back.Kicking conundrumThe general consensus among the French press was that the one back who didn’t shine was scrum-half Maxime Machenaud. Calls are growing for the inclusion of the young and exciting Bordeaux No 9 Baptiste Serin, who in the eyes of many is a more classically French scrum-half. Machenaud plays the game more like a home nations scrum-half, less flashy and more subservient to his fly-half. But dropping Machenaud would mean handing the kicking duties to one of Serin, Doussain or Lopez, all of whom are inexperienced goalkickers at international level.New nine: There are calls for Bordeaux scrum-half Baptiste Serin to start. Photo: Getty ImagesBack-row battleThis is crucial to any Test match but in Paris on Saturday night it could decide the outcome. France have veteran Louis Picamoles at No 8, their one world-class forward, but on the flanks they cede much to the Wallaby pair of Michael Hooper and David Pocock in experience and turnover ability.last_img read more

700,000 trabajadoras agrícolas dicen: ‘Nosotros también

first_imgLos organizadores de Alianza Nacional de Campesinas hablaron conmovedoramente a una multitud de miles de participantes en la Marcha #Me Too Survivors el 12 de noviembre en Los Ángeles. En la concentración, leyeron una carta de solidaridad de 700.000 trabajadoras agrícolas a las valientes mujeres que se han manifestado públicamente sobre sus experiencias de acoso y abuso sexual en Hollywood. La alianza nacional está compuesta por mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas actuales y anteriores y sus familiares.En su declaración se lee en parte, “Escribimos en nombre de las 700.000 mujeres que trabajan en los galpones agrícolas y empacadoras en todo Estados Unidos. [Hemos] visto y escuchado con tristeza al darnos cuenta de los actores, modelos y otras personas que se han presentado para hablar sobre la violencia de género que han experimentado en la industria del entretenimiento. Tristemente, no nos sorprende porque es una realidad que conocemos demasiado bien. Innumerables trabajadoras agrícolas de todo el país sufren en silencio debido al hostigamiento y el acoso sexual generalizados que enfrentan en el trabajo”.Continúa: “No trabajamos bajo luces brillantes o en la pantalla grande. Trabajamos a la sombra de la sociedad en campos aislados y empacadoras que están fuera de la vista y fuera de la mente. Nuestro trabajo nutre a la nación con cultivos que plantamos, cosechamos y empacamos. Aunque trabajamos en diferentes entornos, compartimos una experiencia común de ser víctimas de individuos que tienen el poder de contratar, despedir, poner en la lista negra y amenazar nuestra seguridad económica, física y emocional”.Ponerse de pie públicamente para denunciar las agresiones sexuales en los agro-negocios muestra gran coraje, como revelan los trabajadores agrícolas: “Quejarse de cualquier cosa, incluso el acoso sexual, es impensable porque está en riesgo demasiado, incluida la capacidad de alimentar a nuestras familias”.En conclusión, las mujeres enfatizan: “Entendemos el dolor, la confusión, el aislamiento y traición que puedas sentir” y la vergüenza y el miedo. “Sabemos que no es culpa nuestra. Las únicas personas culpables son las personas que abusan de su poder para hostigarnos, amenazarnos y dañarnos, ya que nos han perjudicado. … A medida que lidias con el escrutinio y la crítica porque con valentía decidiste hablar en contra de los terribles actos que se cometieron contra ti, por favor, date cuenta que no estás sola.”‘Les creemos y nos unimos a ustedes’Cientos de miles de mujeres, en su mayoría inmigrantes latinas, muchos indocumentadas, trabajan en los campos agrícolas de los Estados Unidos. La violencia sexual es tan endémica que una trabajadora agrícola en Iowa comentó: “Pensabamos que era normal en los Estados Unidos que para mantener su trabajo, tenía que tener relaciones sexuales”. (New York Times, 19 de enero de 2016)Las regulaciones gubernamentales prohíben que los grupos de asistencia legal representen legalmente a las personas indocumentadas. Además, la guerra de Washington contra los indocumentados crea un clima de temor de detención o deportación para las mujeres inmigrantes que denuncian incidentes de abuso. Esta situación urgente debe ser asumida por los sindicatos y por las organizaciones de mujeres y otras organizaciones progresistas.Esta carta abierta fue publicada originalmente en la revista Time, el 10 de noviembre.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ag Sales Could Hit Pre-Trade War Levels by 2020 Election

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Ag Sales Could Hit Pre-Trade War Levels by 2020 Election U.S. farmers could see a return to a pre-trade war level of ag sales to China by the 2020 election.Bloomberg says that would relieve economic pressure on one of President Trump’s key voting blocs as he campaigns for another term.The president announced a tentative partial trade deal back on October 11. China is looking to buy $20 billion worth of agricultural products per year if the partial deal with the U.S. is signed.People familiar with the negotiations told Bloomberg that China would consider boosting that level of purchases as high as $40-50 billion.That would take China’s imports of American commodities back to near-2017 levels before the feud broke out between the White House and Beijing.People close to the situation say increasing the level of purchases would depend on President Trump removing remaining punitive tariffs.Beijing says it will exempt some U.S. agricultural goods from tariffs if the U.S. removes tariffs imposed on September 1 and cancels the tariff hike scheduled for December.President Trump is hoping that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping will sign a phase-one deal when they meet in Chile next month. Chinese officials have also said publicly that talks are progressing.

TCU falls apart down the stretch, drops heartbreaker to No. 12 Missouri in overtime

Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. printRebounding has been a struggle for TCU basketball all season, and it was one offensive rebound given up that prevented the Frogs from shocking the No. 12 Missouri Tigers in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday afternoon.After leading by 12 points with 4:48 remaining in regulation, TCU went stone cold, giving up a blistering 19-7 run to Missouri to end the second half.Holding onto a three point lead with seconds left, the Frogs forced what appeared to be the game-clinching miss, but the Tigers were able to grab an offensive rebound and find point guard Xavier Pinson for the tie with 3.9 seconds left in the game.“At the end of the day, you just have to come up with rebounds,” head coach Jamie Dixon said. “It’s disappointing. They killed us from the free throw line, which we said they couldn’t do, and they killed us from three.”As a team, Missouri got to the line a whopping 35 times, compared to just 17 times for TCU.The game remained tight in overtime, with TCU taking the lead yet again with 53 seconds to go on a layup plus a foul by forward Jaedon LeDee.Missouri immediately responded with a layup, and guard R.J. Nembhard, who had scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half and overtime, was unable to get a foul call on the other end, leading to a 102-98 loss for TCU.Pinson was brilliant for the Tigers all day, scoring a career and game-high 36 points on the day. Most of the junior’s damage came from behind the arc, as he hit eight of his 13 three-point attempts.Dixon said that second chances for Missouri were what allowed the Tigers to exploit the Frogs from deep down the stretch.Pinson was not alone, though, as Missouri forward Jeremiah Tilmon also set a career high with 33 points on 11 rebounds. His 8-8 start from the field in the first half gave the Tigers a dominant start down low.Leading TCU offensively was freshman Mike Miles, who followed a strong performance against No. 15 Kansas on Thursday with a career-high 28 points on Saturday.The game was the fourth 20-point performance of the season for Miles, whose rookie campaign has already put the nation on watch.“I’ve always had confidence since the first day I came to this school, but it definitely has grown seeing how good I’ve played,” Miles said.Early on, it was all TCU could do to keep up with Tilmon down low. Dixon played three big men, including true freshman Eddie Lampkin, in the opening minutes of the game to wear the Missouri big man out.The Frogs did start to slow Tilmon down while getting going themselves on offense, shooting just over 59% as a team in the first 20 minutes to take a 43-38 lead into halftime.As the second half went on, the game looked to be more and more in the hands of TCU, as the team found the offensive rhythm it had been looking for all season. Center Kevin Samuel then became the first Frog to foul out this season, and the Frogs lost momentum, giving the Tigers the spark they needed to survive the upset.Despite the loss, TCU’s 98 points were the team’s most points scored this season. The Frogs also displayed quite the improvement in ball control with eight turnovers compared to their 22 committed just two days prior.“The progress has been made,” Dixon said. “We’ve had challenges, but we’ve made progress. We’ve fought.”USC transfer Chuck O’Bannon had one of his best games of the season for TCU, scoring 17 points and grabbing five boards. LeDee and guard P.J. Fuller added a combined 21 points off the bench.Now on a five-game losing streak, TCU will return home on Wednesday in desperate need of a win. They host Oklahoma State University at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.“Just knowing that we’re a good team,” Miles said on how TCU can bounce back. “We can beat anybody.

We send our condolences to the family of this journalist, whose death must not go unpunished.”Elsewhere, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) was still waiting for news of its Iraqi correspondent who disappeared in Baghdad on 22 October. The radio’s spokesperson told Reporters Without Borders that their correspondent was believed to have been kidnapped following the murder of his driver, but they had received no further news about this fate.To date, at least 152 journalists and 54 media assistants have been murdered since March 2003.

However, a recent analysis from RealtyTrac makes the case that the population of Americans not looking for work is not being accurately reflected in their impact on the housing market. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that roughly 92 million Americans remain out of the labor force, but aren’t showing up in unemployment statistics.The company reported that roughly 920,000 people dropped out of the labor force in May, wiping out January and February gains. The study found that total employment stood at 145.8 million, which means that for every three Americans earning a paycheck there are two who aren’t looking for a job. With fewer people working, the economic ramifications will ripple across the economy, especially in the housing market. Men and women who aren’t working won’t be purchasing a house any time soon, depressing the current and future housing market.Signs of an improving economy boosted fixed mortgage rates this week, market reports show.

Unifi v SWT in union-partnership debate

first_imgModernbusiness needs to create a partnership with all employees that will relegatetrade unions to a supportive role, according to Beverly Shears, HR director ofSouth West Trains.Atthe HR Forum aboard the Aurora last week, she locked horns with Rory Murphy,joint general secretary of finance union Unifi, over trade union partnershipswith business.Shesaid that while industrial relations were traditionally adversarial, the reallyimportant relationship should be between staff and management, not unions andmanagement.”Ibelieve in trade unions supporting people when the distribution of power isoff,” she said. “But what a trade union says it wants may not be thesame as what staff want.”Theirmachineries are not for everyone, only trade union members. Employers have aduty to support and listen to everyone,” she added. “You don’trepresent everybody at your peril.”Shearssaid bosses should have a professional relationship with unions and apartnership with staff, while Murphy argued trade unions should be at thecentre of business as the consultants of the 21st century, balancing theprotection of staff with the profit and growth of the company.Hedrew delegates’ attention to Unifi’s life-long learning programmes, which hesaid were the best in the UK.Hesaid employers must realise unions had come a long way since the miners strikeand ‘the winter of discontent’, and did not have ‘flat caps and whippets downour trousers’.”Whilethings don’t remain perfect, there is still a role for the trade unions toplay,” Murphy said. “Nobody’s looking for trouble, but actions ofemployers drive employees to distraction.”Ihave to remind companies that nothing militates a worker more than acompany.” Unifi v SWT in union-partnership debateOn 11 May 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

(Credit: kremlin.ru/ Gazprom Neft PJSC) Gazprom Neft has announced the launch of the new RUB98bn ($1.3bn) Euro+ complex at the Moscow Refinery located in Russia.The Euro+ facility is said to be a key project under Phase II of the Moscow Refinery’s modernisation programme, which started in 2011. The second phase of the modernisation project is scheduled for completion by 2021.Commenting on the launch, Russia President Vladimir Putin said: “This launch marks the completion of a crucially important major project. I should stress that, with the commissioning of the Euro+ complex, 80% of the Moscow Refinery will now have been modernised.“And, in this case, not only have production and other facilities been built and upgraded — new, modern treatment facilities have also been constructed, and regular air-quality monitoring has been put in place.“All of which is setting game-changing environmental standards, and improving people’s quality of life.”The Moscow Refinery’s Euro+ facility is designed to enable the production of gasoline and diesel fuels and aviation kerosene while reducing environmental impacts.The commissioning of the Euro+ facility follows the decommissioning of the Moscow Refinery’s five obsolete previous-generation installations.Gazprom Neft CEO and management board chairman Alexander Dyukov said: “This complex brings together modern oil refining technologies, some of the highest levels of automation in the industry, and innovative digital solutions.”Moscow Refinery upgrade project estimated to cost $4.9bnGazprom Neft expects the total investment in Moscow Refinery upgrade project from 2011 to 2025 to reach RUB350bn ($4.9bn).Russian Minister for Energy Alexander Novak said: “The launch of the Euro+ facility is a landmark event for our refining industry, and for the people of Moscow and Russia.“This launch will also facilitate an increase in exports of these products — something that is fully consistent with the objectives the President has set for the refining industry, and fully consistent with the Presidential Decree on National Projects signed just two days ago.”Last year, Gazprom Neft reported the completion of the first-phase construction of the Biosphere water treatment facility at Russia’s Omsk Refinery.last_img read more

For President Faust, a festive farewell

first_imgIt was a festive farewell.Drew Faust said goodbye as Harvard’s president Thursday as members of the University community celebrated her 11 years as leader with humorous and heartfelt tributes and moving musical performances in Sanders Theatre, and dancing that stretched into the evening at Annenberg Hall.Faust became the University’s 28th president in 2007, the first woman to hold that job. Yet the Virginia native, historian, professor, and founding dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study was quick to tell those gathered at her opening press conference that she was “not the woman president of Harvard; I’m the president of Harvard.”Thursday’s party bookended the celebration of her inauguration on Oct. 11, 2007, which also was in Sanders Theatre, and which included musical tributes from students, alumni, and professors, as well as a humorous video introduced by actor John Lithgow ’67 titled “A Primer for a President.” On Thursday, several guests looked back to rate Faust on her years in Massachusetts Hall, offering grades in a number of “presidential” lessons. Unsurprisingly, she aced them all.Lithgow, the afternoon’s master of ceremonies, kicked off the tribute with archival photos of Faust, and asked the faculty present to stand as he called for a voice vote to “celebrate and commend Drew Faust for a job well done.” The faculty gave a resounding “aye.”“Achieving faculty consensus is an art,” quipped Lithgow, who gave Faust an A for “Lesson One: Take control of faculty meetings.”,Actor Courtney B. Vance ’82 and his two children awarded Faust an A-plus for her ability to honor traditions while being unafraid to question and challenge ones “that may have outlived their usefulness,” including the term “House master,” which Faust worked to replace with “faculty dean.”Harvard’s 31st treasurer, Paul Finnegan ’75, praised Faust, who took office on the eve of the 2008 financial crisis, for staying strong during adversity. “When the going got tough, you got tougher. You acted swiftly but with care,” Finnegan said, offering her an AAA credit rating in lieu of a grade.Faust also got high marks for taking chances during her presidency from someone who knows about taking public risks for a living. “You just have to be willing to screw up and not freak out when you do screw up, because you will screw up. I mean, you are really going to screw up,” joked comedian Conan O’Brien ’85 in a video clip.Faust was also praised for using her position to fight for what she thought was right, for her devotion to athletics, and for her commitment to the sciences, which earned for her from Lithgow a new element on the periodic table: Drewdium. “The project that is higher education, that is opening minds and changing lives and discovering truths, it’s just an exhilarating privilege to be part of it.” — Drew Faust,When it came to picking advisers, Jack Reardon ’60, a former admissions officer, athletic director, and head of the Harvard Alumni Association, said Faust deserved high marks for having the most important expert always in her corner, Charles Rosenberg, Ernest E. Monrad Professor of the Social Sciences Emeritus — her husband.Top marks for “Don’t Forget the Arts” were never in doubt. Faust made incorporating the arts into campus life a hallmark of her presidency. She helped introduce the Theater, Dance & Media concentration and added art to Harvard Yard. Diane Paulus ’87, artistic director of the American Repertory Theater, said she was “continually inspired by President Faust’s profound understanding that the arts have the unique ability to engage our hearts as well as our minds.” She then introduced a segment by jazz great Wynton Marsalis, who helmed a two-year performance and lectures series at Harvard, ushered in through Faust. Family, history, and the 1960s all helped to shape Drew Faust, but it was illness that urged her forward ‘What the hell — why don’t I just go to Harvard and turn my life upside down?’ Related Drew Faust and Larry Bacow on learning from each other, the value of humility in decision-making, and the biggest challenges facing higher education center_img Two leaders, one Harvard The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.,“The project that is higher education, that is opening minds and changing lives and discovering truths, it’s just an exhilarating privilege to be part of it and to have been in this institution and to have watched so many talented people ­— and you saw a lot of them onstage tonight — commit themselves to this project,” said Faust, offering her thanks to the crowd.“You have done the work that I was being praised for tonight,” Faust said. “This has been a collective enterprise, and it’s a collective enterprise that I know is going to continue in support of my successor, Larry Bacow.”,Mandolinist Forrest O’Connor ’10 and guitarist Jim Shirey ’11, members of the Grammy-winning bluegrass ensemble the Mark O’Connor Band, took the stage as part of a group called the Drew Crew. Aditya Raguram ’18, pianist and research fellow in genetics at Harvard Medical School, also performed, as did singer Joshuah Campbell ’16, who concluded the ceremony with a lively rendition of The Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.” That got Faust up on her feet to bust a move center stage with Lithgow. Attendees were then treated to a dance party in Annenberg Hall, which was transformed into a disco with neon lights, a D.J., a black-and-white checked dance floor, and some of Faust’s favorite foods, including shrimp dumplings, beef sliders, falafel wraps, bacon, and chocolate.Jeffrey Douyon, a staff assistant at the Harvard Alumni Association, said that while he had never met Faust he felt as if he knew her after attending the celebration. Hearing “so many kind and beautiful words about her work over the last 11 years and to just be a part of the spirit of this room tonight was beautiful,” said Douyon.“It’s bittersweet,” he added. “It’s sad to see her go. On the other hand, I am excited to see how her legacy lasts here at Harvard.”last_img read more

Unilever Indonesia books slight decrease in net profit

first_imgThe sales growth is in line with an indicative figure provided by the publicly listed company last week.“The second quarter was a challenging period particularly for the Unilever Foods Solution (UFS) unit, whose consumers are hotel, restaurant and café (Horeca),” the company wrote in a statement on July 24.The company recorded a 1.6 percent drop in net sales in the second quarter after a 4.58 percent annual increase booked in the first quarter, it said in the statement.The COVID-19 pandemic has forced customers to stay at home to help curb the coronavirus spread, resulting in drops in visits to hotels, restaurants and cafés. Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) data show that around 2,000 hotels and 8,000 restaurants closed during the first three months of the outbreak in Indonesia, which started in March. As a result, the hotel and restaurant industry lost nearly Rp 70 trillion in revenue as leisure travel came to a complete halt.“Given the challenging conditions in the second quarter, we still consider this achievement to be in line [with expectations], as we expect the economic condition to get better in the next quarters,” Mirae Asset Sekuritas Indonesia analyst Mimi Halimin wrote in a research note on Unilever’s performance on Thursday.She expected consumer companies, including Unilever, to record further efficiencies at operating level to support their bottom line in the event the economic situation remained sluggish.Indonesia’s economic growth cooled to 2.97 percent in the first half, the slowest since 2001, as the expansion of household spending slowed to 2.84 percent from around 5 percent in the last few quarters.The government expects the economy to contract 0.4 percent at worst or grow 1 percent at best this year as it slowly reopens the economy despite the continued rise of COVID-19 cases.“As economic activities have gradually resumed since June, we still believe that there will be improvement in the third and fourth quarters,” Mimi said.The stocks of Unilever, traded at the IDX with the code UNVR, jumped 1.82 percent on Thursday as the main gauge, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), gained 0.75 percent. (prm)Topics : Consumer goods giant PT Unilever Indonesia booked a slight decrease in its net profit during this year’s first half as the coronavirus pandemic hit demand.The local arm of Anglo-Dutch company Unilever pocketed Rp 3.62 trillion (US$246.46 million) in net profit during the period, a 2.2 percent decline compared to the corresponding period last year.Its net sales, meanwhile, climbed 1.4 percent annually to Rp 21.77 trillion while costs increased 0.8 percent year-on-year (yoy) to Rp 10.59 trillion, according to its financial report filed with the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) on Thursday.last_img read more

Swiss pension funds put on brave face over negative interest rates

first_img“But pension funds are reacting – they are looking at plan design and de-risking adjustments and choosing more conservative technical parameters.”One example of this is the PKSBB, the pension fund for Switzerland’s federal railways, which announced in recent months that it would lower its discount and conversion rates and shift to generation tables for its longevity calculations.But Markus Hübscher, managing director at PKSBB, warned that interest rates were “falling faster than we can adjust our technical parameters”.He added that the PKSBB had rejected plans to increase investment risk or risk budget, as the company feared it might have to pay more money into the scheme. However, the SBB has decided to buffer losses suffered by members through cuts in the conversion rate and will help the Pensionskasse to top up pension payouts.This way, pensions will be kept at the level promised under the 5.8% conversion rate, despite the rate’s being cut to 5.22%.Hübscher said the current debate on negative interest rates and the difficult market environment in Switzerland had helped make plain these measures to members.“Before, many members did not understand the link between low interest rates and low expected returns of a pension fund,” he said.“But, with a negative interest rate, now they understand.”Peter Zanella, managing director at Towers Watson Switzerland, speculated that the debate might actually help sway public opinion on a number of contentious changes planned under the Altersvorsorge 2020 reform proposal.In 2010, the voters rejected a cut in the conversion rate to 6.4%, but now the proposed cut to 6% might be “easier to achieve”, he said.And Lukas Riesen, a partner at PPCmetrics, said the situation regarding pension payouts was actually better than expected, because, at the time the payout levels were guaranteed, providers had actually factored inflation into their calculations, which has not occurred.“The system in itself remains good,” he said. “It just needs to be adjusted to reality.” Swiss pension funds are trying to look on the bright side of their new-found situation, brought about after the issuance of 10-year government bonds with negative interest rates.Christoph Ryter, president at the Swiss pension fund association ASIP, said a number of changes to technical parameters had already been accounted for, particularly at pension funds managing above-mandatory assets, which is currently the majority.“I do not see vultures circling over the Pensionskassen yet,” he said. “They can adapt to the situation.”Responding to media reports warning of possible funding problems in the Swiss second pillar, Olivier Vaccaro, a consulting partner at Aon Hewitt, said:  “Of course, if the current environment remains the same, there will be a big problem. last_img read more

Consultants unravel coronavirus implications for Dutch schemes

first_imgIt said the return on emerging market equities was -3.4% in January, to which the firm alsp blames the virus for.As interest rates dropped considerably, the 30-year swap rate – Dutch schemes’ main standard for discounting liabilities – fell by 29bps to 0.34%, both firms said.As a consequence, pension funds’ liabilities rose by approximately 5% under the official discount rate, which is boosted by the application of an ultimate forward rate (UFR), according to Mercer.Were the pure market rate to be used, liabilities had risen even higher, by 6%, it added.Aon warned that Dutch pension funds remain vulnerable because of the sector’s widely shared expectation of lower returns in the coming years.It said that investment results ranging from 3-4%, including volatility, threatens to limit pension funds’ recovery potential.Although social affairs’ minister Wouter Koolmees has granted a temporary reprieve last November from the minimum funding requirements, the minimum required coverage ratio will be back from 90% to the official level of 104.3% at year-end.‘Stay calm’Aaron Costello, regional head for Asia, at Cambridge Associates, said: “Investors should stay calm.” While the Wuhan coronavirus is still spreading, the virus remains less deadly and more contained than the SARS outbreak of 2002–03.“Looking at other epidemics, history suggests that after an initial sharp hit, economies and markets typically recover quickly,” he added.He said the economic and human impact of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is still increasing, and markets may decline further in the coming weeks.However, investors should not overreact. “Indeed, further downside in Asian and Chinese equities may provide a compelling buying opportunity once the fear subsides,” he said.StyleAnalytics, a factor analysis expert company, said the biggest economic risk at this point is fear of a Chinese market collapse and a drop in Chinese productivity/supply chain to the rest of the world.It agrees that investors “shouldn’t worry much about factor tilts if the virus remains contained to China”.But it suggests that if the contagion results in a fear-scenario, investors might want to tilt towards low-volatility and away from small-cap equity.It said: ”Since the biggest impact of this virus will almost certainly be to the Chinese economy, the protection that low-vol and yield provided during the last [2015] Chinese equity crisis suggests a defensive strategy for factor investors as the world watches this latest crises unfold.” The negative economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak in China last month has slightly affected the funding positions of Dutch pension funds, undoing the improvement achieved in December, Aon said.Aon, as well as Mercer, said Dutch schemes’ coverage ratio dropped to 101% on average in January. This is a decrease of two percentage points according to Aon, and three percentage points according to Mercer. Both consultants use slightly different calculation methods.Aon said the coverage ratio had increased in December to 103%. According to both firms, the average policy funding ratio at the end of January for Dutch pension funds was 102%.Due to global fears of the coronavirus, equity returns declined and there was a flight to safe investments, which lowered interest rates, Aon explained.last_img read more

first_imgAnytime Syracuse has needed a spark this season, it’s turned to Alexis Peterson. Momentum-swinging 3s, powerful and-ones and deadly pull-up jumpers have been the trademark of her game.While teammates say her biggest contribution to the Orange is her energy, it’s also Peterson’s tangible ability to score points that has been key, as shown by her team-leading 15.2 points per game.But in games against Top 25 teams, SU is 0-6 and Peterson has never led Syracuse in scoring in any of those games. She said she never feels pressure to score the big baskets in big games, but when her teammates score more in those spots, the Orange loses.“If it’s meant for me to score, it’ll happen,” Peterson said. “Or if it’s meant for me to set up someone else, that’ll be what I do.”Peterson also tops the No. 23 Orange (15-6, 5-3 Atlantic Coast) in steals and assists, but it’s the sophomore point guard’s scoring that has boosted SU this year. Syracuse will look to Peterson, who is the 10th leading scorer in the conference, to lead the way once again Monday when it takes on No. 9 Florida State (20-2, 7-1) at 7 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHer role as the team’s go-to scorer is a new one this season. Peterson averaged just three points per game as a freshman. This year, head coach Quentin Hillsman doesn’t run any plays designed for her, but she still draws attention from defenses.“She’s your biggest threat with the ball in her hands. So you’d like to get it out of her hands as much as possible,” Wake Forest head coach Jen Hoover said after Peterson scored 32 points against her team on Jan. 15. “… I think everybody’s noticed what she’s doing this year.”Peterson is Syracuse’s most dynamic player and in losses, she’s averaging 13.3 points, compared to 16 points in wins. The drop-off isn’t huge, but on Dec. 19 against Baylor, she missed a potential game-tying layup with four seconds left and the Orange lost by two.In SU’s most recent game, a 78-58 road loss against No. 8 Louisville on Thursday, Peterson scored nine points and only two in the first half. She shot 3-of-15 overall, and by time she started producing, the game was already out of reach.In all six losses, the Orange was led in scoring by either Diamond Henderson or Brianna Butler — two players who shoot far less efficiently than Peterson does. Butler and Henderson are shooting 28.3 percent and 36 percent from the field, respectively, as Peterson is shooting 46.3 percent.Though Peterson is the team’s leading scorer and is needed in games against top teams, Hillsman said she’s done enough in other ways outside of scoring to help her team.“I don’t know if it does or not (hurt the team when Peterson’s not scoring) because she’s really good on defense and she really does a very good job of keeping her teammates involved,” Hillsman said. “So I don’t know if it’s a negative of her not scoring.”SU’s next two games are against ranked teams — the Orange will play No. 16 North Carolina on Thursday — and Peterson’s role in big games will continue to be defined.Center Briana Day said in order for Syracuse to be successful, it shouldn’t rely just on Peterson against top teams.“It makes others step up,” Day said. “I mean people have to step up regardless but it makes other people step up when we need points or we need scoring.”CORRECTION: In an original version of this story, the day of Syracuse’s loss to Louisville was incorrect. SU lost to Louisville on Thursday. The Daily Orange regrets this error.  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 1, 2015 at 11:10 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschwedslast_img read more

Iliass Aouani finishes 20th in 10k at NCAA Track and Field Championships

first_img Published on June 5, 2019 at 11:57 pm Contact Tim: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Iliass Aouani was crowned the top male runner in the northeast region this past Friday, but he needed to shave roughly two minutes off his time to be the best in the country. The senior finished 20th in the NCAA Division I Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Wednesday night in Austin, Texas. By virtue of his place, Aouani received an All-American honorable mention. For the first time this decade, no men’s outdoor runner from Syracuse made first- or second-team All-American. BYU’s Clayton Young won the event with a time of 29:16.60, one of three Cougars who finished in the top five.SU senior Paige Stoner and sophomore Laura Dickinson will have their chance at All-American status in the women’s event tomorrow night. Stoner was recognized as the top female runner in the northeast in last week’s regional awards. She also made first-team All-American last year in the steeplechase. Dickinson is making her first ever NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships appearance after a breakout sophomore season. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more

Messi Warned to Keep off Jerusalem

first_imgBut the Palestinians are not happy that the match will be held in Jerusalem.Palestinian FA chief Jibril Rajoub wrote on Sunday to Claudio Tapia, the head of the Argentinian FA, last week accusing Israel of using the match as a “political tool”.The stadium that will host the match is in west Jerusalem. The Palestinians want the eastern part of the city as the capital of a future state that will include the Gaza Strip and the Israeli-occupied West Bank.However, the status of the city generally is highly sensitive.The match was originally slated to be played in Haifa but Israeli authorities contributed funding for it to be moved to Jerusalem, irking Palestinians further.This is in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of the city as Israel’s capital.The U.S. embassy was moved there last month.“The Israeli government has turned a regular sports match into a political tool. As was widely covered in Argentinian media, the match now is being played in order to celebrate the `70th anniversary of the State of Israel’,” part of Rajoub’s letter said.On Sunday, Rajoub declared a campaign against Argentina and particularly Messi, noting he has millions of fans across the Arab and Islamic world, Asia and Africa.“He’s a big symbol. So, we are going to target him personally and we call on all to burn his picture and his shirt and to abandon him. We still hope that Messi will not come,” he told reporters after leaving the Argentinian representative office in the West Bank town of Ramallah.A small group of youths wearing Palestine football scarves demonstrated outside the representation office and attempted to set fire to an Argentinian flag.Rajoub has long tried to get football’s world governing body, FIFA, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to impose sanctions against Israel.This is mainly because of the Israeli government’s settlements policy in the West Bank and because it has imposed travel restrictions on Palestinian athletes citing security concerns.Those bodies have not heeded his calls. Argentina have made four previous pre-World Cup stopovers in Israel since 1986.The team has been drawn in World Cup Group D and will open its campaign against Iceland in Moscow on June 16.Most countries do not recognise either Israel’s or the Palestinians’ sovereignty in Jerusalem and have embassies to Israel in the Tel Aviv area.However, Guatemala and Honduras followed the U.S. lead in moving their embassies last month.(NAN)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Palestine Football Association head has urged fans to burn pictures of Argentina striker Lionel Messi and replicas of his shirt if he plays against Israel in Jerusalem next weekend.Twice world champions Argentina will play at Jerusalem’s Teddy Kollek Stadium on Saturday night in a World Cup warm-up match.The game has attracted huge interest among the Israeli fans, mainly because of Messi’s planned participation.last_img

AgiproNews Italian View: Can new faces commit to Italy’s hazardous playground

first_img Amid a frantic Italian gambling scene, in which its incumbents make drastic adjustments to a new tax regime and tougher regulatory demands imposed by the Lega-5Star coalition government, this February Italy’s ADM published its updated online licensee registry.In 2019, Italy’s online gambling marketplace will accommodate 66 licensed operators, as the Italian tax authority secures €13.2 million in licensing concessions, granted at €200,000 per registered applicant.Nevertheless, the tax figure is below the €24 million (120 concessions), that the ADM had targeted in 2018, when it officially opened its licensing application window, following an almost two-year delay.As anticipated all Italian legacy gambling incumbents – Lottomatica, Snaitech, Microgame, Sisal and Stanleybet secure licensing provisions, continuing their fierce rivalry against established international operators – bwin, William Hill, bet365 and Betfair.The ADM has approved its licensee registry until 31 December 2022, however under current maligned conditions, it remains to be seen how many participants will return for business in three years’ time.In particular, the movements of fresh incumbents such as low margin sportsbook Pinnacle, CIS markets leading online betting brand 1xBet and UK fast growth betting exchange Smarkets will be monitored closely.During 2018, both Pinnacle and 1xBet stated their commitment in entering the Italian online betting marketplace, despite Lega-5Star passing the Dignity Decree’s social mandate, implementing an outright ban on all forms of gambling advertising/marketing.Speaking to SBC, Paris Smith Chief Executive of Pinnacle stated that her company remained unfazed by changing Italian prospects, as the online sportsbook had proven its capacity to scale markets whilst maintaining low marketing costs and no bonus incentives.Nevertheless, closing 2018, Italy’s populist coalition government would deliver its first ‘Budget Law’, showing no mercy to industry stakeholders, as tax increases across all gambling verticals were confirmed.Whilst new incumbents had stated that the Dignity Decree advertising ban could be a survivable dynamic, an online sportsbook GGR duty increase from 22 to 24%, combined with a 20-to-25% GGR on online casino games will serve as a cold entree for new Italian actors.Out of the 66 ADM licensed operators, the question arises as to how much money and resources new operators will commit to spending on a restrictive market with no promotional outreach.Furthermore, operating in hazardous times, will Italy’s online gambling sector, simply become the domain of its legacy operators, mirroring retail trends.Having waited for two-years to secure official ADM licenses, the changing dynamics of Italian politics and its constant bureaucracy may have led to foreign enterprises losing their appetite to invest in Italy, an all too familiar story for the nation’s business community.

Inkoom expecting tough game in Sudan

first_imgSamuel Inkoom is expecting much more of a challenge from Sudan than Ghana faced in the reverse fixture in Kumasi back March of this year.Ghana, chasing a third consecutive appearance at the World Cup finals claimed a 4-0 home win against Sudan in the Group D qualifying of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.With three more matches to complete the second round stage of matches, Inkoom, who is making a return to the Black Stars after a long absence expects a tough test in Omdurman on Friday when Ghana plays Sudan.“Every player wants to show something and prove to the coach that he is good. The most important thing is that we need to stay focused, listen to the coach and keep on working hard,” Inkoom said at Ghana’s training camp in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.“I believe this team. I have trust in my colleagues. It’s not going to be easy. We have been there twice. But I believe that we are going to beat them.”The Black Stars are just one point adrift leaders, Zambia on the log with the side that finishes top, advancing to the third round stage. For Inkoom and his colleagues despite a long and busy club campaign in their various leagues abroad, sacrificing to put smiles on the faces of Ghanaians means so much to them.“Everybody knows we have a big game ahead of us which is against Sudan and Lesotho. We need to sacrifice for our nation as well. Our leagues are over and we need to come and see the family and it’s not easy at all.“It’s our nation, we need to put everything aside. If the nation is happy, we are also happy. We need to sacrifice for our nation because football is different in every country. It brings a lot of people together so we need to sacrifice,” the defender said.After the game with Sudan, the Black Stars travel to Johannesburg on 9th June and will train in the South African capital for four days before departing to Maseru for the match against Lesotho.last_img read more

Tarik Black impressing Walton, but can he limit foul trouble?

first_imgPHOENIX >> The noise sounds pleasant to Tarik Black’s ears when he hears his name called by the public address announcer. It’s another reminder Black has stayed in the Lakers’ startling lineup.Yet Black hardly sounds consumed with holding a position that Lakers coach Luke Walton granted him in the last month.“I never cared about starting,” Black said before the Lakers faced the Phoenix Suns on Thursday at Talking Stick Resort Arena. “I put more toward performance and how he has played me consistently this year. That’s more of a confidence builder and a boost in our relationship than putting me in the starting lineup.”That might make things easier for Walton, who plans to start rookie center Ivica Zubac eventually. He delayed that decision partly because Zubac had a right quadriceps contusion that kept him out of the previous two games. Still, the 25-year-old Black has also stated his case by averaging 5.6 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 45.3 percent in 18.2 minutes as a starter. Tough decisionsDavid Nwaba, who signed a 10-day contract with the Lakers last week, was encouraged by Walton’s recent compliments.But when the Lakers mull whether to grant Nwaba a second 10-day contract on Friday, the variables go beyond Walton liking Nwaba’s defense.“We want to look at a couple of people before the season ends,” Walton said. “Some of them aren’t available right now. (Nwaba’s) been good. But we have to decide if we want to wait or look at someone else.”Nwaba, an undrafted guard who starred at University High of Los Angeles and Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, entered Thursday’s game averaging 2.8 points on 50 percent shooting in 10.8 minutes through four appearances.“Sometimes guys don’t really believe in me. It’s your job to prove them wrong,” Nwaba said. “I can do more. I have high expectations for myself. Getting to those expectations is the ultimate goal.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“I’m happy with the way Tarik plays,” Walton said. “He’s out there and trying to play the right way. He’s not hunting shots. When he gets open looks, he takes them and gets us extra possessions.”Walton and point guard D’Angelo Russell also praised Black for setting screens and rolling hard to the basket. Regardless of whether he starts or comes off the bench to close out the season, Black is focused on reducing the number of personal fouls (three) he has averaged as a starter.“His reasoning is because he’s tired of giving up layups. That’s why he’s fouling,” Walton said. “I don’t think that’s the case all the time. A lot of times it’s on the guy he’s guarding. But it’s good for him.”Black agreed, arguing matter-of-factly that some of his foul issues stem from officials not giving him star treatment.“I like to be aggressive,” Black said. “I’d rather have the foul trouble now and dial it down as my career progresses and learn how to still be aggressive than to totally take away my aggressiveness.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Real Madrid comes to Thailand

first_imgThe training must have done some good as two days later the boys played in a local match and won 5-2, their first victory of the year. Imagine playing more than ten months without a win, it is hard to put in to words just how excited they were when the ref blew the final whistle.New kit and boots for all the boys.Each player at the football camp received a certificate of attendance. Youngsters from the Father Ray Children’s Home pose with former Real Madrid and Liverpool footballer Alvaro Arbeloa at the SCG Stadium in Muang Thong Thani.Twelve soccer obsessed, and very lucky boys from the Father Ray Children’s Home in Pattaya recently took a day off from school to travel up to Bangkok to claim a prize after winning a competition – a day of football training with coaches from the Real Madrid Football Academy.Arriving at the SCG Stadium, home to Muang Thong United, the boys were greeted by former Spanish international, Real Madrid, Liverpool and West Ham United footballer Alvaro Arbeloa.The Children’s Home was one of three charities that were chosen to train for the day, and each boy received a Real Madrid kit, shirt, shorts and socks as well as a pair of brand new soccer boots.For more than six hours the boys were put through their paces by the Spanish coaches. They played in small and large groups, learned new skills such as passing and heading the ball, and teamwork, and by the end they were so exhausted that they slept all the way home to Pattaya.last_img read more

Statistics prove Jesse Lingard has had downright terrible goal involvement over the last year

first_imgAdvertisement hjdhNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsbmjg8Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Esrf( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) maWould you ever consider trying this?😱bsxw6dCan your students do this? 🌚88pozRoller skating! Powered by Firework Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has produced only a single goal and zero assists in the last 11 months for his side. The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Monday and the attacking midfielder had an excellent chance to extend the lead, but completely failed to grasp it. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might start worrying about this problem as his side are in a revamp process under his stewardship.Advertisement The game was in parity during the second half, when Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka pulled the ball back just outside the six-yard box to the academy graduate. But unfortunately, Lingard failed to take a touch and as a result, the ball struck his thigh before ricocheting his face. Beside this awful miss, United had another chance to double their lead but Paul Pogba failed to score from the spot-kick penalty, thus the Red Devils procured just a single point in the second game of the Premier League season.Advertisement However, there isn’t any shortage of supply for Jesse Lingard, but his decisiveness in the final third has been absolute below par over the last year. The England International, who was once hailed as the next huge talent, has found the back of the net last December but has failed to assist a single goal.    Advertisementlast_img read more

Zlatan leads United to cup glory

first_img FRAGILE DEFENSE United’s fragile defense, though, nearly contrived to throw away the chance of glory. Although Jesse Lingard extended United’s lead in the 38th minute, Southampton fought back with goals either side of half-time from Manolo Gabbiadini. But as Southampton pushed for its first major trophy since beating United in the 1976 FA Cup trophy, Ibrahimovic produced the bullet header in the 87th minute from Ander Herrera’s cross. Now Ibrahimovic has won a major trophy in a fifth country after honours in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. Although Wayne Rooney went up to collect the trophy as captain, that was his only role at Wembley. The 31-year-old forward was forced to watch from the bench as his older teammate produced an ageless, match-winning contribution. “This is what I came for. I came to win, and I am winning,” Ibrahimovic said. “I have to keep going because the more I win, the more satisfied I get.” The striker didn’t cost United any transfer fee when he joined in the summer transfer window as a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. He sought another final challenge, even in the twilight of his career, rather than an easy payday in an inferior league. “You appreciate winning more the older you get. It’s all about winning and collecting trophies,” he said. “This is my 32nd trophy. Wherever I have been, I have won.” LONDON, England (AP): Zlatan Ibrahimovic powered in a late header to win the English League Cup for Manchester United on Sunday, sealing a 3-2 victory over Southampton after a two-goal lead was thrown away by Jose Mourinho’s side. It was Ibrahimovic’s second goal in the final after putting United ahead from a free kick, taking the 35-year-old Swede’s tally to 26 goals in an incredible first season at United, where his performances have more than lived up to the swagger. That bravado was flaunted on the Wembley Stadium pitch amid the celebrations. Asked by a television reporter if something special was unfolding at United, Ibrahimovic replied: “I came. That’s special.” The free summer transfer window recruit ensured Mourinho became the first manager in United’s history to win a trophy in his first season, adding to his three League Cup triumphs with Chelsea. “(It) is quite a sense of relief,” Mourinho said.last_img read more

How to avoid a frightening Halloween

first_imgYoung children may lack the physical ability to rapidly cross the street, and their height limits their visibility to drivers. Children have reduced attention spans and lack sufficient impulse control. Children do not evaluate potential traffic threats effectively and cannot anticipate driver behavior. Before Halloween, youngsters need to be coached about what to expect – not just about the rules of crossing streets but about what’s real and what’s not. Not all children like surprises, and they count on their parents and teachers to ease them into a comfort zone. Some parents find their kids are particularly bothered when a person’s face is covered up. As preschoolers blur fantasy and reality, they’re unable to keep in mind that a real person is beneath the mask. Usually by age 6 or 7, a child can be reasoned with about what’s real and outgrows the fear. One safety rule is particularly vital for children with peanut and other food allergies: No eating Halloween candy until it’s inspected at home. Dr. Martin Belson of Atlanta says parents need to plan for safety regarding costumes, home decoration, trick-or-treating and candy. When shopping for costumes and accessories, buy only those with a label indicating they are flame resistant, says Belson, whose Web site is www.kid emergencies.com. The label “flame resistant” doesn’t mean an item won’t catch fire, but it indicates it will resist burning and should extinguish quickly once removed from the ignition source. Other tips from Belson: Any swords and other props should be made of a flexible material so they don’t pose a hazard if fallen on. Wait until children are home to sort and check their treats. Toss out anything that’s homemade or not prepackaged. Any hard candy is one of several choking hazards for toddlers. Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper are highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations well away from all open flames and heat sources. Can you help? Parent to Parent wants to hear more successful tips on this dilemma (Note: This is a question we have posted in a previous column): “Lately my 4-year-old son has had trouble playing by himself. He is at loose ends when his brother, who is 6, is not home. We recently had a baby girl, and while I can attribute some of my son’s behavior to new-baby anxiety, I can’t dismiss it.

405 lane up to Arnold

first_img Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other local leaders were thrilled at the Senate’s swift passage of the measure, which they began fighting for last summer, and urged the governor’s approval. The mayor is “happy to see that the Legislature recognizes the extreme urgency of the situation in the Valley and on the Westside,” said his spokesman, Darryl Ryan. “Mayor Villaraigosa is also looking forward to Gov. Schwarzenegger signing the bill so we can get moving on getting the people of L.A. moving.” Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who chairs the council’s Transportation Committee, was also pleased. “We’re very excited, thrilled,” she said. “The message we’re trying to send here in Los Angeles is we want to make sure Los Angeles is getting its fair share. The 405 car-pool lane is critical to easing some of our traffic woes.” Four months after snubbing San Fernando Valley motorists, the state Senate handed them a major victory Monday, quickly passing legislation needed to fast-track construction of the 405 Freeway car-pool lane and avoid losing $130 million in federal money. Legislation for the 10-mile car-pool lane on a traffic-choked stretch between the Westside and the Valley now goes to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for his signature. Some officials worry, however, that Schwarzenegger will veto the bill because he wants legislation that would expedite projects around the state, not just on the 405. While the governor typically does not comment on pending legislation, a spokesman said he strongly supports the construction method – known as design-build – outlined in SB 1026. “The governor is strongly supportive of design-build and believes that design-build efficiencies give California taxpayers the best bang for their buck and hopes the Legislature will provide this authority for all projects,” said his spokesman, Vince Sollitto. Rep. Howard Berman, the Van Nuys Democrat who secured $130 million for the $500 million car-pool lane in last summer’s federal highway spending bill, was elated by the Senate action. “I urge the governor to take advantage of this opportunity to reduce traffic congestion in Los Angeles and to sign the bill into law as soon as possible,” he said in a statement. The $130 million that Berman secured must be spent by 2009, and the state Department of Transportation said it needs design-build authority to get the project completed by that time. The balance could come from local funds and $350 million Schwarzenegger proposed in his infrastructure bonds. Design-build would allow a private firm to simultaneously plan and build the project, potentially shaving time off the schedule. However, the state’s engineering union strongly opposes design-build, which would take the job out of the hands of Caltrans’ engineers. Last fall, after Berman secured the funding, many Valley Assembly members resisted crafting a bill that went against the union. They came aboard only after Villaraigosa and his representatives pushed hard for the bill co-authored by Assemblywoman Fran Pavley, D-Woodland Hills. The bill passed in the Assembly in September and was sent to the Senate, which abruptly adjourned – a day earlier than planned – dealing a serious setback to the the car-pool lane project. The Senate voted 28-8 Monday – the first bill passed this year – drawing support from the Valley-areas Democrats and Republicans. “I’m thrilled. I drive on the 405 every weekend (and) I know – and so do so many of us – how much we need this,” said Sen. Sheila Kuehl, D-Santa Monica, who co-authored the bill. “We got the job done. I’m hoping the governor will sign it.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Increased photosynthesis could mean big yield bumps

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Political and agricultural leaders gather at the University of Illinois today to see transformative work by scientists in the Realizing Increased Photosynthetic Efficiency (RIPE) research project, which has already demonstrated yield increases of 20%. A $45 million, five-year reinvestment from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR), and the U.K. Department for International Development (DFID) will enable the researchers to continue their work to address the global food challenge.“[The recent] report on world hunger and nutrition from five UN agencies reinforces our mission to work doggedly to provide new means to eradicate world hunger and malnutrition by 2030 and beyond,” said RIPE Director Stephen Long, the Gutgsell Endowed Professor of Crop Sciences and Plant Biology at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic at Illinois. “This investment is timely. Annual yield gains are stagnating and means to achieve substantial improvement must be developed now if we are to provide sufficient food for a growing and increasingly urban world population when food production must also adapt sustainably to a changing climate.”Building on half a century of photosynthesis research at Illinois, including several landmark discoveries enabled by state and federal partnerships, RIPE researchers simulated the 170-step process of photosynthesis. They used their computer models to identify seven potential pipelines to improve photosynthesis — and with the support of an initial $25 million, five-year grant from the Gates Foundation — began work in 2012 to try to turn their ideas into sustainable yield increases.“While no single strategy is going to get us there, our successes in redesigning photosynthesis are exciting,” said RIPE Deputy Director Don Ort, USDA/ARS Photosynthesis Research Unit and the Robert Emerson Professor in Plant Biology and Crop Sciences at Illinois. “RIPE has validated that photosynthesis can be engineered to be more efficient to help close the gap between the trajectory of yield increase and the trajectory of demand increase.”Last year, in a study published in the journal Science, the team demonstrated that one of these approaches could increase crop productivity by as much as 20% — a dramatic increase over typical annual yield gains of 1% or less. Two other RIPE pipelines have now led to even greater yield improvements in greenhouse and preliminary field trials.“Our modeling predicts that several of these improvements can be combined to achieve additive yield increases, providing real hope that a 50% yield increase in just three decades is possible,” Long said. “With the reinvestment, a central priority will be to move these improved photosynthesis traits into commodity crops of the developed world, like soybeans, as well as crops that matter in the developing world, including cassava and cowpeas.”RIPE and its funders will ensure that their high-yielding food crops are globally available and affordable for smallholder farmers to help feed the world’s hungriest and reduce poverty, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.But we still have a long road ahead of us, Long said.“It takes about 15 years from discovery until crops with these transformative biotechnologies are available for farmers,” he said. “It will therefore be well into the 2030s before such superior crops are seen at scale in farmers’ fields.”last_img read more

Twitter Kills the API Whitelist: What it Means for Developers & Innovation

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos mike melanson Tags:#Analysis#Data Services#news#twitter#web Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationcenter_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Last night, Twitter made official what many members of the developer community had long suspected – there would be no more whitelisting for data-hungry apps. For some developers, this either means that they have to come up with creative work-arounds or, for others, that their projects are dead in the water. So why did Twitter kill the exception to the rule and what does it mean for the future of Twitter apps and the developers who create them?What Is Whitelisting?First, a quick primer on whitelisting. Whenever you use a third-party service that integrates with Twitter, it likely uses the API (application programming interface) to get data – to get your @replies, direct messages, tweets and so on. To make sure that these apps don’t overrun the servers, however, Twitter imposes a rate limit, which means they can only make so many requests per hour. For more data intensive services – think Klout, Hootsuite or Twitalyzer, for example – these limits are far too low for them to operate. That’s where the whitelist comes in. The “whitelist” is simply a list of services that are allowed to make a much higher number of requests per hour. By much higher, we mean 20,000 compared to 350. So, What Has Changed?Yesterday, Twitter platform lead Ryan Sarver announced on the Twitter Development Talk group that “Twitter will no longer grant whitelisting requests.” Sarver describes the feature as a holdout of a time before Twitter offered other methods to access its data.Twitter whitelisting was originally created as a way to allow developers to request large amounts of data through the REST API. It provided developers with an increase from 150 to 20,000 requests per hour, at a time when the API had few bulk request options and the Streaming API was not yet available.Since then, we’ve added new, more efficient tools for developers, including lookups, ID lists, authentication and the Streaming API. Instead of whitelisting, developers can use these tools to create applications and integrate with the Twitter platform.The real change, however, comes a bit further down into Sarver’s announcement when he notes that “there are going to be some things that developers want to do that just aren’t supported by the platform.” Instead of granting whitelisting to make advanced research and analytics possible, writes Sarver, developers will need to contact Gnip, a reseller of Twitter data.Why Get Rid of Whitelisting?According to Abraham Williams, a “Hacker Advocate” and developer at Q&A startup Answerly, Twitter is getting rid of whitelisting to push developers onto its streaming APIs. That, and keeping Twitter up an running, of course.“They’re essentially saying if you can’t get your data in real time or in less than 350 requests in an hour, find something else to do,” said Williams. “Every API has some kind of rate limit and a lot of them don’t have whitelisting.”Twitalyzer founder Eric Peterson agreed that it was likely a matter of necessity. “Is this a reasonable thing for Twitter to do? It is. This is about their growth and stability as a platform. Developers are secondary,” said Peterson. “It’s probably just a natural part of their growth. They must have hit the wall from a technology perspective.”What Does This Mean for the Twitter Ecosystem?When Twitter started out in 2006, it was a simple, SMS-based service that allowed a small group of users to communicate with each other and put that content on the Web. A short six months after the service was born, the Twitter API was introduced. Ever since, developers have been creating apps around the microblogging system, using the data to analyze individuals social influence online, communications habits, and even worldwide trends. Those ideas that needed access to more data were able to requisition the company for whitelisted access. Now, whitelisted companies will be grandfathered in, but the doors are closed to everyone else. So who will this move affect, first and foremost? According to Twitalyzer founder Eric Peterson, the most affected will be “everyone who for the last three months has been building stuff on the API” and waiting to hear back on their whitelist application.“You can’t really do a ton without that whitelist,” said Peterson. “We would have run into rate limits in the first couple months and probably have said forget it.”One developer notes in response to the announcement that he needs around 800 requests per hour and that “This and a few other ideas I had just died.”Williams explained that the changes affect some developers (and ideas) more than others. He said that sites could use the streaming API and collect data moving forward, but gathering historical tweets will be a problem.“The people who are up in arms about it are the people who need access to historical data,” said Williams. “If I wanted to build an app that would search the tweets of people you follow and you followed more than 20 people, I wouldn’t be able to pull your entire Tweet history.”That Leaves Us With…What’s Next?Of course, what’s a limit without finding a clever way around it? The party line from Twitter on this one is that, if a developer needs more data than allowed, they’ll need to pony up the bucks to Twitter data-reseller Gnip. As Ed Borasky, a data scientist who does work in text mining, journalism and social media, notes on the Google Group discussion, this squeezes out the little guy. [Gnip is] a non-starter for small consultants, startups or non-profits. We simply will find problems to solve that don’t require subscriptions to a high-volume and high-priced source of *raw*, *unstructured* data. There are plenty of large corporations who can sell “business intelligence” to other large corporations, but that’s not a game that a small business can play. I am not a qualified prospect for Gnip’s service and you shouldn’t be pitching it to me. 😉From here, two are two distinct possibilities. First, developers will find a way over the wall and create alternative methods to get data, through nets of fake accounts or other methods. The second possibility – one requested in the conversation by Twitter API consultant and trainer Adam Green – is that an open market open up for Twitter data.Now the next step in opening up this marketplace is to create multiple resellers of Twitter API data, and let them compete on price. Giving Gnip a monopoly over this market makes no sense. Twitter’s biggest problem is the huge volume of requests. By blocking whitelisting you are forcing some developers to cheat by creating multiple accounts and distributing their requests across them. That can never be stopped. What you have to do is make it inefficient, by letting multiple resellers complete and drive the price of Twitter data down. Then the strongest reseller will take the load off of you and offer enough value added that developers will be willing to pay for data. That will never happen when only one reseller sets the price.Twitter has benefited over the years by all of the additional value added by its developer community and hopefully the end of the whitelist won’t aversely affect this same community. Green ends his note with a well-wishing to Twitter and we’ll end with the same.“You are riding a tiger. Good luck, and try to stay open and honest. This is a good step on that path,” writes Green. “As long as you tell the truth, you will succeed.”last_img read more

Add Beautiful Light to Your Scenes With a China Ball

first_imgChina balls are one of the cheapest and most effective ways to add beautiful light to your scenes. Here are just three of the many ways you can use them on set.Top image from Leafhouse FilmsThe china ball is one of my favorite tools to work with on set. The quality of light from a china ball can be absolutely beautiful; it’s very soft, forgiving, and can really wrap around your talent’s face. That said, to make the most out of china balls means that you’ll need to know each and every way you can use them. Below are just three examples of the most effective ways to utilize them.1. Ambient Room LightingImage from The Kreen of the CropInterior scenes will often call for the base light level in a room to get brought up. Say for instance you’re working with a nice three point lighting setup on your actor, but the lights aren’t spilling into your background enough, and the ambient level of the room is too low. By placing a china ball or two up high near the ceiling, you can easily brighten the room without having to further soften the light. This is a very fast and foolproof way to add ambience without eating up more time on set.2. Softbox-styleImage from No Film SchoolIf you don’t have a softbox on set and there’s no time to set up c-stands, flags, and silks to diffuse your standard film lights, china balls are an excellent alternative. The light quality from a china ball is nearly identical to that of a high-quality softbox and requires very little set-up time. You’ll usually want to clip some black duvetyne to the back of the china ball to avoid having it spill all over the room. This will allow you to hit just the talent’s face with light (much like a sofbox would), effectively keeping the background light levels in check.3. On a Boom PoleImage from Comet Tale ProductionsOne of the most difficult types of setups to light (especially if you’re on a budget) is a long tracking shot. Tracking shots float through various spaces on your set, which means you need to light a much bigger area — unless, of course, you’re using a china ball.An excellent alternative to rigging up countless lights across your set is to simply put the china ball on a boom pole and have a crew member walk with it. Doing this will allow your actors to move freely throughout the set, and can save you precious time while still delivering beautiful results.Obviously this list is just the tip of the china ball iceberg. Here’s a little bonus video from Film Riot where Ryan Connolly teaches you how to build a china ball/dimmer switch combo.Ever used a china ball on set? Got any footage to share?

Students with greater sense of belonging are helpful Study

first_imgResearchers have found that students who feel a greater sense of belonging with their peers, family and school community are less likely to become bullies. The findings suggest that parents and teachers should consider ways to create a supportive and accepting environment both at home and at school. “What we have found is that students’ perceptions of how supportive their school environment is has the power to alter bullying behaviour. This means that even acts of simple compassion and efforts to create an accepting and supportive space for students can help prevent bullying in schools,” said Chad Rose, Associate Professor at the University of Missouri. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainFor the study, researchers analysed survey responses from more than 900 middle school students from rural schools throughout the US. The survey addressed their sense of belonging as well as bullying behaviour. The results indicate that the more a student feels like they belong among their peers and family, the more likely they will feel like they belong at school. In addition, the more they feel like they belong within their school community, the less likely they were to report bullying behaviour. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThis indicates that parents might be able to play a proactive role in increasing their child’s sense of belonging at school by focusing on improving family belongingness. “If you have children with varying interests, it might be beneficial to suggest the whole family get together to attend each other’s events and activities, even if it does not please the whole crowd every time,” said Christopher Slaten, Associate Professor at the University of Missouri. The study suggests that one of the ways parents can increase a child’s sense of family belonging is to organise activities that cater to every child’s interests.last_img read more

North American markets come roaring back as tensions ease in Ukraine

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market registered a strong advance Tuesday as worries of an escalation in the Russian-Ukraine standoff lessened.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 95.32 points to 14,308.06, led by base metal stocks.The Canadian dollar gave up early gains to move down 0.22 of a cent to 90 cents US a day before the Bank of Canada’s interest rate announcement.U.S. indexes were also sharply higher in the wake of major losses Monday after Russian troops over the weekend invaded the Crimean peninsula, where Russia has major military installations and much of the population is Russian speaking.Although tensions are still high, they were ratcheted down somewhat after Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered tens of thousands of Russian troops participating in military exercises near Ukraine’s border to return to their bases.The Dow Jones industrials jumped 198.6 points to 16,366.63, the Nasdaq gained 65.82 points to 4,343.12 and the S&P 500 index ran up 23.51 points to 1,869.24.Putin has said he hopes that Russia won’t need to use force in eastern Ukraine. The Kremlin, which does not recognize the new Ukrainian leadership, insists it made the move into Crimea in order to protect Russian installations in Ukraine and its citizens living there.Analysts warn that the situation in eastern Europe still remains highly volatile for global markets.“Note that this withdrawal of troops refers to exercises that… the Russian authorities had always maintained were unrelated to Ukraine,” said Adam Cole, head of G10 FX Strategy at RBC Capital Markets.“It does not appear to have any bearing on Russian troops inside Crimea. As such, markets will remain sensitive to Ukraine-related headlines and further bouts of risk aversion are likely.”Meanwhile, Scotiabank reported $1.71 billion of quarterly net income, up 6.5% from a year earlier. Ex-items, earnings came in at $1.34 a share, which met estimates. The bank is raising its dividend 3% to 64 cents a share and its shares gained 43 cents to $63.46.“If you look to see where the earnings came from, a lot of it was domestic,” said Allan Small, a senior adviser at Holliswealth, observing that Scotiabank has had the most exposure to emerging markets of the big banks.“And right now, the emerging markets are struggling. They had a great run for a long time and now everyone is kind of stepping back.”RadioShack will close up to 1,100 U.S. stores as the electronics retailer reported a quarterly loss of $191.4 million, up sharply from a $63.3-million loss a year earlier.

Ohio State outlasts California 5234

BERKELEY, Calif. – In a game that saw Ohio State and California combine for more than 1,000 yards of total offense, the Buckeyes outlasted the Golden Bears 52-34 Saturday.The Buckeyes ended the game with 608 yards of total offense.After a quick three-and-out by Cal to open the game, OSU wasted no time getting into the scoring column. Redshirt-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton, who was named the starter in place of injured junior quarterback Braxton Miller, hit junior wide receiver Devin Smith down the right sideline and Smith took it 90 yards to make it 7-0. The score was the longest offensive play in Ohio State football history.Not even two minutes later, the two connected again for another touchdown, this one from 47 yards out to give the Buckeyes a 14-0 advantage. Golden Bear freshman quarterback Jared Goff was stripped by junior linebacker Ryan Shazier on Cal’s next drive, resulting in Guiton’s third touchdown pass of the game, as he found senior wide receiver Chris Fields on fourth and goal from the one.Cal scored quickly on its next drive on a Goff touchdown pass to make it 21-7, and a 39-yard field goal by the Buckeyes made it 24-7. Goff threw his second touchdown pass of the game on the ensuing drive to make it 24-14 after one quarter of play.Even though OSU got off to a such a quick start, coach Urban Meyer said he did not feel secure until there were only a few minutes left.“I never felt comfortable until three minutes left or something like that,” Meyer said. “I felt like we could control, running the ball, run the clock out but I never…not until the end I felt comfortable.”Redshirt senior running back Jordan Hall scored on a one-yard touchdown run to give the Buckeyes a 17-point lead, and Cal kicked two field goals making the score 31-20 at the half.Hall scored twice in the third quarter, as the offenses kept humming. Goff threw two more touchdown passes himself to make it 52-27 at the end of the third.The Golden Bears were able to score once more in the fourth quarter on a one yard run by running back Daniel Lasco, but the Buckeyes ran out the clock to hold on to the win 52-34.Meyer called the high offensive production something that was “fun to watch,” and the way the unit is playing right now is what he envisions it looking like.“We couldn’t have done this a year ago. Its not going to happen,” Meyer said. “The development of Devin Smith, the development of Corey Brown, Philly Brown, and there are some weapons on offense right now.”Guiton finished the game with 276 yards passing and four touchdowns, and Hall ran for 168 yards on 30 carries and scored three touchdowns.Even though he said he was never really told he was going to start Saturday, Guiton said that did not change his preparation.“I really was never told a a set time when I was going to start or anything but all week I practice with the ones and just prepared with them like the starters,” Guiton said. “I kept the mindset like I was starting and today when I got the nod and everything I was just ready to go.”OSU takes on Florida A&M in Columbus next Saturday at noon. read more

Geological Survey of Sweden teams up with SPECIM for national core scanning

first_imgThe Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) has signed a contract with SPECIM for one of the world’s largest optical and mineralogical core scanning projects. Together with its South African partner GeoSpectral Imaging (GSI), SPECIM will scan and analyse 200 km of hyperspectral imaging data of archived drill core. The scanning will capture VNIR, SWIR and LWIR wavelength spectral images as well as high resolution RGB images, all in a single scan. The project will result in a uniform national drill core data base for further macro-analysis.“We are looking forward to working with SPECIM. The project will extract additional information from our voluminous asset of drill cores. The information – available on the internet – will be of great value for exploration, research and mapping” said Kaj Lax, Head of the Mineral Resources Department at the Geological Survey of Sweden. “The drill cores cover more than 100 years of exploration. This project will transform Sweden’s mineralogical data into digitised, actionable insight.”“The combination of SPECIM’s SisuROCK scanner and GeoSpectral Imaging’s processing solution provides the best-in-class solution needed to address the requirements of the client, the high speed and performance is what makes this project economically viable”, said Rainer Bärs, Project Manager, Hyperspectral Sensors and Software at SPECIM. “We look forward to working with the Geological Survey of Sweden as they enter a new era in their minerals information activities.”“SPECIM has made a strategic decision to move in the supply chain from an equipment manufacturer to a service provider through internal structuring and by partnering. This contract is a confirmation of our strategy working in action,” said Risto Kalske, Chairman of the Board, SPECIM. “We appreciate Sweden taking the lead in digitising their national archive, and trust other countries will adopt similar practices enabled by new services and solutions.”SPECIM Spectral Imaging is a leading manufacturer of hyperspectral imaging instruments and systems. In addition to AISA airborne remote sensing systems, SPECIM provides ImSpector Imaging Spectrographs, Spectral Cameras and Hyperspectral Imaging Solutions for an increasingly wide range of industrial and scientific applications such as colour measurement, recycling, geological core logging, process analytical technology (PAT), life sciences, chemical imaging, and forensics.last_img read more

UPDATE County violated Clean Water Act for three years judge says

first_imgA federal judge ruled that Clark County violated the Clean Water Act for three years and will be liable for damages, which have yet to be determined.U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton, who bluntly told the county last month that its argument “makes no sense,” signed the order Thursday.In granting partial summary judgment to plaintiffs Rosemere Neighborhood Association, Columbia Riverkeeper and Northwest Environmental Defense Center, Leighton wrote that “even viewed in the light most favorable to Clark County,” the evidence shows the county was in violation of its National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit from Aug. 17, 2008, to Dec. 28, 2011.In 2008, the county refused to adopt state standards for managing polluted runoff, dismissing them as an unreasonable burden to place on private developers. In 2011, Leighton issued an injunction against Clark County, ordering it to follow state default stormwater requirements that newly developed land drain as slowly as it did prior to Euro-American settlement. At the time, the county was defending its stormwater plan in the state courts, a fight it ultimately lost.Stormwater runoff is federally regulated as a major source of water pollution. It contains toxic metals, oil, grease, pesticides, herbicides, bacteria and nutrients that run off buildings and pavement into streams, degrading water quality and killing marine life.last_img read more

Here’s what he says (read the full interview here): “The mistake we made was to assume that the people will celebrate our decision to quit on principle..There was a communication gap and that gap was filled by BJP and Congress who told people that we ran away from responsibility” Arvind Kejriwal Reuters This line we-did-the-right-thing-but-didn’t-communicate-well is used by all political parties when they screw up Most recently the Congress has been doing it Several UPA ministers have blamed Manmohan Singh’s failure to communicate for the Congress impending defeat in the next elections (Read here and here) What politicians really mean when they talk of a “communication gap” is this: the people are too dumb to understand our holy intentions Kejriwal indirectly says as much: “We thought that people would understand our reasons on their own But it did not happen” Now he has to explain it to those dimwits who want to vote for Modi While it will always be true that better communication with the people is useful the assumption that people are not clever enough to understand what political parties stand for is silly Did India Shining fail in 2004 because the BJP failed to communicate Is Congress slipping this time just because it did not speak about the good things it has done – when scams corruption and price rise are there for everyone to see and experience Communication does not always need erudite explanation and language Your actions are communication too Coming back to Kejriwal the fact is not that people didn’t understand his decision but they understood it only too well Everyone understood that he was in a hurry to resign – and just needed an excuse Even before he resigned over his failure to table the Jan Lokpal Bill he was claiming as far back as in January (watch this NDTV interview) that Congress would regret supporting him as he planned to go after Sheila Dikshit and Congress scams He was hinting that he would like the Congress to withdraw support so that he could go out a martyr – but that didn’t happen His ministers were in a rush too to show they could deliver something before they resigned Hence the pursuit of vigilante justice against African women in midnight raids by Law Minister Somnath Bharati The truth is Kejriwal was trapped first by his own supporters who asked him to take up the job through a referendum and later by the need to govern when his instincts wanted to play anti-establishment protester This is what led to his infamous dharna which saw his stock fall and he felt compelled to exit quickly to avoid further conflicts between image and responsibility The honest thing for him to do was to resign but to say he was doing to in order to get a better mandate He lost support because he claimed he was forced to resign – which was manifestly not the case It was not a failure to communicate but his inability to hide the apparent truth that cost him his halo In fact the real reason why voters felt let down may have had nothing to do with his resignation at all – for opinion polls done around that time showed him winning hands down What voters saw was what he did after resigning Suddenly he was on a different trip His goal was not to win the next Delhi election (that was to come to him by right) but to become a national player chasing Narendra Modi in Gujarat and Varanasi Kejriwal’s loss of traction in Delhi came from the voter’s acute sense of abandonment How much will you care for a company whose product you bought if it suddenly stints on after-sales service and abandons you The problem clearly was not what Kejriwal failed to communicate but what his actions actually did to his voters They are angry because they think he used them as a stepping stone to become a star on the national stage The second point Kejriwal makes in his interview rings truer He tells ET that two categories of people were disappointed in him – his staunch supporters (presumably the people in the jhuggis and the lower middle class) and those who wanted him only as Delhi CM with Narendra Modi as PM He rightly concludes that those who wanted Modi as PM did not take kindly to his decision to challenge the Gujarat CM – and this is apparent from the anger in the BJP camp which is more palpable than in the Congress camp which is muted Politically Kejriwal had two choices: he could have chosen to go quiet on Modi and collect the anti-incumbent vote in the Delhi election while allowing Modi to take the centre The other option was to take on the BJP and Modi and go soft on the Congress By not taking on Modi Kejriwal could have won – possibly won big – in Delhi But the Delhi victory apparently stoked his greed He probably felt if he could win Delhi so easily maybe the whole of India may be his for the asking too Again we find two Kejriwals speaking First he wants to say all parties are the same – Congress BJP and Third Front and only he is different “He (Modi) is not any different from Manmohan Singh “ Kejriwal says “The third front is not different either” But then he recoils on Modi: “Modi is more dangerous than other leaders in the electoral fray because of his history with Gujarat riots But that’s a known fact I speak more often about his development record because the supposed Modi wave is because of that I want to bust that myth” But Kejriwal is not just trying to bust Modi’s myth That needed him to stay in Gujarat but he is contesting against Modi in Varanasi – which is not needed if you want to bust his myths So why is he doing this Quite clearly Kejriwal believes that the Congress is about to implode and to take the Congress’ political space he needs to position himself against Modi He wants to contest to make a point not necessarily to win This is also why he maintains two contradictory propositions: that it does not matter how many seats AAP wins and yet that Modi and Rahul will surely be defeated by AAP in Varanasi and Amethi Some of his statements thus appear delusional When he claims he will win Varanasi has he considered how this is possible The contest involves the Congress and Samajwadi Party and Kejriwal and if they split the anti-Modi vote he can hardly hope to win Kejriwal is also betting that the BJP will “get less than 180 seats” and “Mr Modi is definitely not becoming PM” He concludes: “2014 will throw up a fractured mandate and we will have re-elections in a year” It suits Kejriwal to have another election in 2015 This is not acute analysis but wishful thinking masquerading as electoral wisdom Kejriwal’s interview suggests that he is coming to down to earth but brief visits to Planet Earth are not enough He needs to truly introspect (Read The Economic Times interview here) For controlling road dust.
