World Cup 2015: Wales 6-15 Australia

first_img TAGS: Highlight The first-half was cagey with penalties being trades by both sides, before Dan Biggar had his first miss of the tournament late on in the half to leave the Wallabies, who had gained the ascendancy in the latter stages, 9-6 up at the break, after three Bernard Foley penalties. As Wales chased the game in the second-half, they couldn’t turn their possession into points, even when the Wallabies were down to 13-men. It was a testament to Australia’s water-tight defence that they held out – it was the defence of potential world champions.What’s hotAustralia organisation when down to 13 menThe pressure on Australia when they were down to 13 men was immense but their committment, defensive organisation and ultimately heart took the breath away. Time after time in the second half between 55 and 70 minutes, Wales continually hammered at the Wallaby line, choosing lineouts and five-metre scrums, but they couldn’t find a way through the mass of green and gold defenders. Even when they crossed the whitewash desperate Wallaby defencers held them Wales attackers up.Under the cosh: Australia were down to 13 men at one point but held outWallaby scrum continues to purrWhatever Mario Ledesma is being paid, he needs be politely asking for it to be doubled. So long derided for folding when the pressure came on, the Wallaby pack yet again showed how destructive they could be, earning several scrum penalties to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Their ‘bajada’ or explosive eight-man shove, inspired by the Pumas, has been a feature of this tournament and Scotland, who were given a torrid time by Samoa will be wary come scrum-time.Gareth DaviesWhen Rhys Webb was stretchered off the field against Italy in the warm-ups, the nation mourned but Gareth Davies, the Scarlets scrum-half has comfortably slipped into his shirt. He was agressive – fighting to get the ball back off the much larger Stephen Moore; sharp – consistently sniping around the fringes and skilful; showing deft hands as he looked to put players into space. With four tries in four games, he’s been one of the successes of Wales’ World Cup campaign.Constant threat: Gareth Davies is growing into the role at No 9Sean McMahonHe lasted 48 minutes but showed their Wallaby No 7 jersey is in safe hands if Pocock and Michael Hooper are unavailable. Early on a shuddering hit on Dan Biggar was felt in the stands. The young Melbourne Rebel more than competed with two Lions backrows, Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric. His strength over the ball and ball-carrying ensures that we’ll be seeing far more of the 21-year-old in the coming years.What’s notWelsh tactics dealing with a numerical advantageFor seven minutes, the Wallabies were down to 13 men, and they played for 15 minutes a man down. Wales kept it tight and tried take Australia on in the tight exchanges. Sam Warburton, sensing Australia were vulnerable, chose on several occasions to take attacking lineouts, or scrums. With extra numbers, however, they failed to use width and spread it out to the flanks where they had a numerical advantage. Perhaps they didn’t trust their ability to create out wide but as Warren Gatland admitted it was something they would be looking at closely ahead of the South Africa game.Under pressure: Wales put Australia under pressure but couldn’t break them downWelsh indiscipline in the first halfThere were a few occasions in the latter stages of the first-half when Wales were on the back foot. Their backrow were penalised twice for transgressing outside the 22 when the tryline was not under threat, giving away six points. First with Justin Tipuric pinged for some illegal footwork at the breakdown 35 metres out and secondly, a Taulupe Faletau rogue boot, 30 metres out. Craig Joubert warned them that the next time, it would be yellow card. They proved expensive points.Theatre: Twickenham was packed for a huge battle between Wales and AustraliaStats Australia again defeat Wales in a compelling encounter in which their defence managed to keep out Warren Gatland’s men when down to 13 men Wales ran 291 metres to Australia’s 212, and had 60 per cent possession to Australia’s 40Australia beat 15 defenders compared to Wales’ 10, both sides had four line-breaksThe game’s top carrier was Israel Folau with 64 metres carried.

60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1990s

first_imgJacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international tries from the Nineties Collapse Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960s Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test… Setting off down a tight lineout blindside, the sprite-like nine beat six English defenders before anyone had quite gathered what was going on. Van der Westhuizen’s chip never gets above head-height, but the deliberateness of this deft delicacy sees him scoop up the ball on the bounce and shrug off Mike Catt (poor man) to cement a 24-14 Springbok win.John Bentley (British & Irish Lions) v Gauteng, 1997 Matt Dawson’s famous dummy was the most important try on the 1997 Lions tour, but part-time winger, part-time comedian John Bentley was the top try-scorer.None was better than this swerving 70-metre effort against the Gauteng Lions, which would propel him towards a starting berth in the second and third Tests.The last two swerves seem more aesthetic than pragmatic, but they served as the exclamation mark on the try that, more than any other, set the Lions on their way to a Test series victory.Christian Cullen (New Zealand) v Australia, 1997 Christian Cullen’s pace was remarkable, not the least because for the duration of the Nineties he wore shirts so baggy that they must have felt like a mini parachute. The best of a stellar selection came against Australia in 1997, as part of a first-half onslaught that saw the All Blacks go 36-0 up.Zinzan Brooke does his best Finn Russell impression with a long miss-pass, which Cullen steams onto at top speed. Barely even noticing tacklers as he ghosts past them, he instead focuses on tormenting full-back Stephen Larkham.Each sway of Cullen’s hips forces Larkham to turn, but each time he does, you get the feeling that he cannot even see the All Black, never mind tackle him.Jonah Lomu (New Zealand) v France, 1999 There was always going to be more than one Jonah Lomu try on this list, wasn’t there? The RWC 1999 semi-final will always be best known for France’s 43-31 comeback win, but these memories should not come at the cost of Lomu’s barnstorming first-half score.There’s a famous picture of Maradona where six Belgian defenders stand facing him, desperately trying to stop the little maestro. Lomu wasn’t so little, but the result was the same: an entire defence can’t stop genius.Five defenders lay their hands on Lomu, he disappears into an ocean of blue shirts, but he somehow re-emerges on the other side, still clasping the ball, not knowing what would come before the 80 minutes were up. 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s A brilliant pass, but one equally made by the intelligence of Gavin Hastings’s run, beginning moments before Townsend made his first cut. He was flying as he caught the ball and only stopped underneath the posts to ensure the conversion would take Scotland to a 23-21 victory.FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY EDITIONJonah Lomu (New Zealand) v England, 1995 There are many emotions you may feel while watching a rugby match. Excitement, despair and even unconditional love are common. But pity is not. Pity is foreign to rugby – except for one summer afternoon during the RWC 1995 quarter-finals.Any observer who has ever anticipated physical pain, maybe when bathing a wound in saltwater or hearing the whirr of a tattoo gun, will pity the unfortunate Mike Catt here.Jonah Lomu broke into cult icon status as he broke Catt’s body, but people forget the elegance with which he swerved around the covering Rory Underwood and Will Carling first.Kiwi commentator Keith Quinn summarised the moment pretty well: “Lomu… oh… oh!” Oh, and he’d go on to score another three tries in the match.Joost van der Westhuizen (South Africa) v England, 1995The Springboks and 1995 go together like butter and toast, props and scrummaging. Their most famous try was Pieter Hendriks’s opener against Australia, the most famous moment that image of Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar, but their best try came five months later at Twickenham (see 1:20 on the video).Many pundits have Gareth Edwards and Joost van der Westhuizen as the greatest scrum-halves of all time, so it seems fitting here that the South African reimagines Edwards’s famous 1972 score against Scotland (as seen in our top ten tries of the 1970s).MORE GREAT TRIES… Can’t get to the shops?

Expand Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1980s Outside lane: Jonah Lomu escapes the French defence to score a try at RWC 1999 (Getty Images) Expand 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1990sThe 1990s was an incredible decade for try-scoring. There was Jonah Lomu, Christian Cullen and Jeff Wilson – and that’s only thinking about New Zealand. Picking only ten scores was no easy task, but keep reading for one-man wrecking balls, last-minute heartbreakers and tries from the end of the world…Serge Blanco (France) v Australia, 1990Serge Blanco made our lowdown of the best tries of the Eighties for sending France to the inaugural World Cup final, but his most sensational individual effort would come three years later.Catching a ball from a wheeling scrum on his own line, Blanco took off like a greyhound being pursued by a pack of chihuahuas. His stride length seems twice that of the Australian defenders, only briefly slowing to dummy the full-back with a characteristically Gallic insouciance.Going coast to coast untouched? Unparalleled.Philippe Saint-Andre (France) v England, 1991 The final game of the 1991 Five Nations saw both France and England gunning for the title. Down on the scoresheet, France needed something special and what is truly memorable about this try is its audacity, so surprising that the camera pulls away as the move begins.Serge Blanco seized the ball from Pierre Berbizier. Drawing the tackle, the peerless full-back shipped on to Jean-Baptiste Lafond, who in turn found Philippe Sella. Four pairs of hands and the ball was still in the shadow of the French posts.Fly-half Didier Camberabero was the true architect of the try, taking the switch pass and kicking the ball over the English defence, before catching it on the full and booting it infield.Philippe Saint-Andre was the lucky recipient, dealing with an awkward bounce to the rapture of a crowd, which sounded more Lyonnais than London.France may have lost the game 21-19, but Saint-Andre has since taken some silverware home: his was awarded the title of greatest Twickenham try at the stadium’s 2009 centenary dinner.Tim Horan (Australia) v New Zealand, 1991 A string of knockout defeats for the Kiwis began in the 1991 World Cup semi-final. New Zealand were the ones dressed in black, but it was David Campese who was the magician (see 2:09 on the video).Michael Lynagh’s chip couldn’t have been more tempting if it was covered in ketchup, but a weaving Campese still seemingly had no route to the try-line.You’d have been forgiven for thinking that Campese had sidestepped himself dizzy, so strange was the sight of him gently lobbing the ball behind his head.The All Black defence were similarly confused, colliding as they watched Tim Horan take the popped pass in his stride to send them home.Jean-Luc Sadourny (France) v New Zealand, 1994 French rugby was to the 1990s what the Dutch football team were to the 1970s – iconic and stylish without ever really winning anything of note.The gloriously named ‘try from the end of the world’ came in New Zealand’s last defeat at Eden Park, where they had allowed France to stay within a score by missing a plethora of kickable penalties. They would be punished in the most theatrical way possible.Attempting to describe the try in the space available could never do it justice. Watch it and feast on the speed, the accuracy and the most unselfish offload ever seen on a rugby pitch.The way New Zealand have been going recently (recently being the last 25 years), it will take similar fireworks to ever break the spell of Eden Park again.Gavin Hastings (Scotland) v France, 1995 Not many passes are so good that they spawn their own nickname – but Gregor Townsend’s ‘Toonie Flip’ is one of them. Scotland were 21-16 down, and desperately looking for their first win in Paris since 1969.It didn’t look likely, as a deep Scottish attacking line seemed well marshalled by the drifting French defence. But the quicksilver Townsend suddenly stepped inside and, despite the attentions of two tacklers, extended his right arm out like a ballerina’s leg to flip the ball inside. 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1980s LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960slast_img read more

This just in: Controlled burn today at Lake Apopka North Shore

first_img Reply Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear The St. Johns River Water Management District is conducting a 3,000-acre prescribed fire today on the Lake Apopka North Shore. The purpose of the controlled burn is for marsh management, burning hardwoods and cattails and to promote the expansion of native marsh grasses. The fire was set by aerial ignition.Aerial ignition allows district staff to ignite fires more quickly, which results in faster burnout and less lingering smoke. Convection produced by igniting an area rapidly can help move the smoke up and away more quickly. Aerial ignition also allows staff to introduce fire into areas that may be inaccessible from the ground, ensuring that prescribed fire is introduced into even the most remote areas of the property. Aerial ignition allows staff to burn more acres in a shorter period of time, which in time will aid district staff in maintaining the fire frequency needed for the maintenance of the conservation area.Prescribed fire is the use of carefully planned fire purposefully set under stringent conditions to control the fire’s effects. Its benefits include restoring and maintaining natural communities, reducing chances of destructive wildfires, perpetuating fire-adapted plants and animals, cycling nutrients, controlling tree diseases, and opening scenic vistas. Prescribed fires help prevent wildfires by burning off fuels that naturally build up over time, while also helping to control the growth of woody shrubs.Before conducting a burn, the district ensures wind and other weather conditions are correct for controlling the fire and minimizing the impacts of smoke on residents and traffic.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five districts in Florida managing groundwater and surface water supplies in the state. The district encompasses all or part of 18 northeast and east-central Florida counties.

I should have known, as they NEVER, EVER, stop the nonsense of these too often “so-called controlled burns,” and it is over-do all the time. Definitely, my #1 pet peeve! Bird sanctuary area, now….. Mama Mia Set from the air. How many small animals on the ground, caught up in the fire, suffered, and perished? You don’t hear about that! 3,000 acres. That is a big area! Mighty funny they monitored the wind, because my wind chimes on my front porch, have been clanging together all morning. Just wait, one day they are going to end up setting the muck on fire out there tinkering around, and they will regret it then, as it will burn baby burn for weeks, and there is not a fire department around that will stop it from burning on and on for weeks.center_img Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Billy Bob January 17, 2018 at 3:25 pm Put your foil hat away … controlled burns are real and they serve an important purpose.

The Jesolo Lido Pool Villa is a custom designed prefabricated wood structure, and it was built and furnished in only 6 months. Energy-saving high standards have been applied to the shell to guarantee maximum comfort and almost zero costs throughout the four seasons. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe building features wood structures as a flexible and anti-seismic system which also avoids thermal bridges. The 31 cm of perimeter insulation, argon-gas insulated glass facades, 10 kw of photovoltaic panels installed on the roof and the interior / exterior led light fixtures co-operate in making a technologically contemporary building.  Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniBecause of the small dimensions of the plot, the design goal has been directed in leaving as much open space as possible. The indoor living area has transparent sides which opens towards two different-sized patios. The largest one, to the west, features a long swimming pool, which takes the entire length of the space, and two planted square inserts. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniAn olive tree is the main three-dimensional element in the patio and it’s placed next to the staircase which leads to the underground level, where the storage and technical rooms are located. The smaller patio, to the east, also features two planted inserts with another olive tree to counter balance the other side. The outdoor areas, as a client’s main request, needed to be low maintenance, so most of the surface was paved and the plants in the inserts where selected in order to live with the least care possible. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe 4-meter roof overhang to the west allows to have enough shading during the hot summer months and allows to place a covered outdoor seating and dining areas. Interiors are custom designed with typical JMA solutions, like audio/video walls, custom designed solid-surface kitchen, motorized roller shades which disappear into the dropped ceiling for maximum continuity of indoor-outdoor areas, integrated indirect lighting and home automated electrical system. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe radiant floor heating system is powered with an electric heat pump which takes the energy from the photovoltaic panels. The air-conditioning system is fully integrated in the dropped ceiling with linear diffusers and hidden intakes. As always for JMA, the pursuit of simplicity and linear solutions represented a large part of the design work.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessEarthquakes – How Well Are We Prepared?EventConstell.ation / LIKEarchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Jacopo Mascheroni Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Year:  Projects Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMASave this projectSaveJesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA “COPY” Area:  320 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: JMA Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Lido, Italy Contractor: Manufacturers: Acqua Risolta, Oty Lightcenter_img Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeJMAOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesLidoItalyPublished on March 21, 2014Cite: “Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA” 21 Mar 2014.

This is a residential renovation project for a couple living in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe existing building had served as a residence/factory when the client was a child. The original wood building had started as a residence/shop, and as the business grew, it eventually got expanded by adding extra spaces first and a storage space later, both made of steel structures. As a result, it became a building complex composed of three blocks in the end. It is a two-story building made of a combination of wood and steel structures, with the building area of 230m2 and the total floor area of 440m2. The clients made the decision to renovate the existing building instead of reconstructing it. Initially, this project started as part of a special program organized by a Japanese magazine BRUTUS, which invited readers who wanted to renovate their houses as well as several selected architects, and matched each reader to his/her favorite architect to design the renovation. When we received a postcard from the client outlining his request, we looked up street views of the project site on Google Maps and couldn’t believe the scale of the building: we wondered, “is this really a renovation and not a reconstruction?”Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Takumi OtaAfter that, we met and talked with the client and his wife and impressed by their passion to treasure and carry on the legacy of the building used by their family and employees for a long time. As we proceeded with the renovation plan, we discussed further details and found out that the total floor area needed for the client’s life would be as small as 170 m2, even if we accommodated all the requested elements. It meant that we had considerable excess floor areas in relation to the whole.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaAlthough the fact that we had “more floor areas than necessary”, which would never happen in urban areas, was unfamiliar to us, we re-organized the spaces by locating necessary places while inserting voids here and there. And these voids would be kept there in expectation of accommodating the client’s future passion.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThese voids could not be kept as they were, but they required some costs for repairs and reinforcements, which were considered as a future investment. Keeping these voids is an experimental challenge in a way, because we don’t know exactly what kind of future passion may arise. Yet, such voids, created somewhere between the interior and the building envelope, generates a dynamic space that raises expectations for something to happen. I am not the only one who feels passion for such unknown possibilities. We are looking forward to seeing what will happen here in the future.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessShenzhen Talent Park / AUBESelected ProjectsPalmetto Library / Houser Walker ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Construction: Area:  440 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects House in Nobeoka / Schemata Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Architects: Schemata Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Takumi Ota+ 19 Share ArchDaily Japancenter_img Year:  2017 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSchemata ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNobeokaJapanPublished on December 27, 2017Cite: “House in Nobeoka / Schemata Architects” 26 Dec 2017.

Epps will continue his long affiliation with The Playhouse when he assumes the role of Artistic Director Emeritus.I have had the privilege to helm this remarkable theatre for twenty years,” said Mr. Epps. “We have given voice to exciting playwrights and we have brought the classics to the stage using vibrant and exciting concepts that made them feel new. Our collaborations with other Los Angeles theatres have provided opportunities for innovative small companies to reach a wider audience on a larger stage. As the theatre approaches its centennial year and begins a search for new executive leadership, it seems an apt moment to announce my intentions for the future. I am honored to be part of creating a legacy that will carry The Playhouse into its next 100 years.”“Sheldon has been an inspiration and driving force for The Pasadena Playhouse for almost two decades,” said David DiCristofaro, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Through his leadership, we have broadened our reach through diversity and educational initiatives and surmounted significant challenges. Because of his vision, artistry, dedication and deep love for this theatre, The Pasadena Playhouse is recognized as one of the great American theatres.”Epps joined The Playhouse in 1997 and immediately set about returning it to the forefront of the American theatre. Under his leadership, The Playhouse has earned distinction for productions of artistic excellence, critical and box office success, and highly praised for its theatrical diversity. He is responsible for building the audience base and creating outreach and educational programs that are an integral part of the community. Several musicals that began at The Pasadena Playhouse have found success on Broadway, in London and on tour. These include Baby, It’s You (2011 Tony nominee), Sister Act: The Musical (five Tony nominations in 2011), A Night With Janis Joplin (2014 Tony nomination) and Purlie among others. In 2010, when the financial future of The Playhouse looked grim, Mr. Epps led a dedicated team of board members and staff through a restructuring that put the theatre back on solid footing financially while continuing to produce with a high level of artistry. His efforts resulted in renewed support through grants from major donors and private individuals, including substantial support from the Wallace, Doris Duke Charitable, and James Irvine Foundations.“I am especially proud of our success in the area of audience diversity, as well as diversity on stage. Our efforts have become a model for addressing these important issues for our field. I am also very proud of the outreach and educational programs The Playhouse has created to bring theatre to young audiences who may otherwise not have experienced the immeasurable impact of theatre,” said Epps.Before beginning his tenure at The Playhouse, Epps served as Associate Artistic Director of the Old Globe Theatre for four years. He was also a co-founder of the off-Broadway theatre, The Production Company. Mr. Epps has directed both plays and musicals at many of the country’s major theatres including The Roundabout Theatre Company, Manhattan Theatre Club, the Guthrie, Playwrights Horizons, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Arena Stage, and the Goodman Theatre. He conceived the highly acclaimed musicals Play On! and Blues In the Night, which both received Tony Award nominations. He directed productions of both of those shows on Broadway, in London, and at theatres around the world.Mr. Epps has also had a busy career as a television director, helming episodes of shows such as “Frasier,” “Friends,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Girlfriends” and many others. For more than a decade, he served as a member of the Executive Board of the Society of Directors and Choreographers. Mr. Epps received the James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award for his efforts and accomplishments at The Pasadena Playhouse. He was the first leader of an arts organization to receive this prestigious award.The Pasadena Playhouse began in 1917 and was recognized by the State Legislature as the State Theatre of California for bringing national and international renown to the state as a center for dramatic art in 1937. A new era began when Sheldon Epps became Artistic Director in 1997. Production highlights include the launch of the national tour of Purlie (with the Goodman Theatre); Sister Act: The Musical, which played in the West End at the London Palladium Theatre and on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre (Five 2011 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical) and is currently on a national tour; Baby, It’s You!, which played at Broadway’s Broadhurst Theatre (2011 Tony Award nominee); and Looped, which played at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre (2010 Tony Award nomination, Best Actress in a Play – Valerie Harper). Other productions developed at The Pasadena Playhouse include A Night With Janis Joplin (2014 Tony Award nominee), Stormy Weather: The Lena Horne Story, Can Can: The Musical, and Ray Charles Live.

Gardaí told to target activities of roaming Limerick teenage gang

first_imgFacebook DECISIVE action needs to be taken to curb a sharp rise in anti-social behaviour on the Old Cratloe Road in Limerick after a gang of teenagers were accused of carrying out random attacks in the area.The call comes from Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan and Councillor John Costelloe who have called for Garda intervention.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A number of incidents have occurred over the last number of months as a large group of teenagers started randomly assaulting people.Last weekend, a man was suffered knife injuries from an attack as he walked along the Old Cratloe Road. Other incidents included students being mugged and anti-social behaviour escalating to incidents of criminal damage to houses and commercial properties in the area.Deputy Quinlivan said that the “large group of teenagers roaming the area were randomly assaulting total strangers with apparent impunity.“According to locals, a number of adults have suffered severe beatings while one man had his nose and eye socket broken in unprovoked attacks.“It is totally unacceptable that law abiding residents are being subjected to this lawlessness by a large group of roaming teenagers, a number of who are already well known to the Gardaí.“What is going on here has moved far beyond anti-social activity and has descended into outright criminality.“I have spoken with the Garda Chief Superintendent and asked that extra Gardaí be deployed to the area. I have had numerous calls form upset local residents demanding that the Gardaí clear this element from their streets.”“Furthermore, incidents of “daylight drug dealing” have been reported to Gardaí which has left many residents extremely concerned.Councillor Costelloe said “Residents feel particularly vulnerable after a recent assault when they claim that it took the Gardaí an hour and 20 minutes to respond to the 999 call.“Gardaí need to quickly get a grip on this situation” Cllr Costelloe said.“It will take a robust Garda response to bring this situation under control. I am disappointed that a week after the recent serious assault, that nobody has yet been charged with the offence.“The culprits of this criminality need to be brought before the courts where hopefully they will receive the salutary prison sentences they deserve. It is not simply good enough to send around a patrol car now and again. This problem needs a properly prepared and resourced Garda plan of action,” he stated.

‘Call 911’: Neighbor speaks out about finding missing teen whose parents were murdered

first_imgreleon8211/iStock(GORDON, Wis.) — A 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who police say was kidnapped after the murder of her parents in October was found late Thursday afternoon by a woman outside of Gordon — 70 miles away from the girl’s Barron home. Kristin Kasinskas was just getting home from work when her dog started barking because someone was walking up her driveway, she told ABC News. It was her neighbor — along with a girl with matted hair and shoes too big for her. “She came to the door, she knocked, then she actually just opened the door and said, ‘Call 911, this is Jayme Closs.’ We recognized Jayme immediately, because obviously, we’ve seen her picture everywhere, everywhere,” Kasinskas said. Jayme had come up to the neighbor, who has not been publicly identified, while the neighbor was walking a dog, Kasinskas said. Jayme did not explain how she escaped from apparent captivity, Kasinskas added. “I think [Jayme] looks thinner than what her pictures showed,” Kasinskas said. “She definitely looked unkempt, kind of — she didn’t have shoes that were hers. She was wearing really big shoes that she obviously took from wherever she came from. She looked, overall, in good condition, just a little unclean, like she’d been held captive.” In the early hours of Oct. 15, police responded to a 911 call featuring “a lot of yelling,” a record from the Barron County Sheriff’s Department obtained by ABC News said. Police arrived to find James and Denise Closs, 56 and 46, shot and killed in their home. Jayme was missing and believed to have been abducted. On Thursday, Kasinskas said she and the neighbor sat Jayme on a couch and called 911, with someone staying on the line with them until police arrived and took her to a hospital about half an hour later. In the meantime, they talked, Kasinskas added. “She was very sweet,” Kasinskas said. “I asked her some questions about if she’d ever heard of Gordon, Wisconsin. She had not. Stuff like that. Not anything real specific, but she did talk to us a little, talked to my kids a little bit. I introduced her to my new puppy. We kept it very simple and just very calm until the cops got here to take her.” Jayme told the women she had been at a house a few down from Kasinskas’ and that she hadn’t known the person who was holding her, Kasinskas recalled, but that it was the same person who killed her parents. “We probably have walked our dog by that house on numerous occasions,” Kasinskas said, although she added she was not familiar with who lived there. The neighbor was “really calm and collected,” Kasinskas said, and “did a very good job getting her here, keeping her calm.” But underneath the surface, the women were shocked, Kasinskas said. She told ABC News the moment felt “like it wasn’t real,” especially since the community was so familiar with Jayme’s story and had been keeping eyes out for her. Kasinskas’ children recognized Jayme immediately as well — the school district had just done an “event for hope” for her, the mom said. Kasinskas believes her neighbor came to her home “partly because she knew us, of course, but I think she just felt safer knowing my husband would be here, that we’d all be here doing this together rather than her alone.” The Barron County Sheriff’s Department confirmed on Thursday night that a suspect was taken into custody. A press briefing is scheduled for 10 a.m. local time on Friday. Jennifer Smith, Jayme’s aunt and godmother, told ABC News they will be reunited on Friday. “We are just happy everyone kept praying and didn’t give up hope, like we didn’t,” Smith said. “A lot of happy tears in this house tonight.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Global political responsibility for the conservation of albatrosses and large petrels

first_imgMigratory marine species cross political borders and enter the high seas, where the lack of an effective global management framework for biodiversity leaves them vulnerable to threats. Here, we combine 10,108 tracks from 5775 individual birds at 87 sites with data on breeding population sizes to estimate the relative year-round importance of national jurisdictions and high seas areas for 39 species of albatrosses and large petrels. Populations from every country made extensive use of the high seas, indicating the stake each country has in the management of biodiversity in international waters. We quantified the links among national populations of these threatened seabirds and the regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) which regulate fishing in the high seas. This work makes explicit the relative responsibilities that each country and RFMO has for the management of shared biodiversity, providing invaluable information for the conservation and management of migratory species in the marine realm.last_img read more

It’s a U-turn! Government set to recommend national register for landlords

first_imgHome » News » It’s a U-turn! Government set to recommend national register for landlords previous nextRegulation & LawIt’s a U-turn! Government set to recommend national register for landlordsDespite statements in parliament criticising register for “adding bureaucracy”, ministers have changed their minds.Nigel Lewis25th June 20191 Comment2,852 Views The government is to perform a U-turn and is now set to recommend that a national register of landlords is introduced, its review of the UK’s selective licensing schemes is to reveal.Ministers have until now been vocal in their opposition to such a scheme and in February last year Heather Wheeler MP told parliament that: “The Government does not support a mandatory register of private landlords.“The majority of landlords provide decent and well managed accommodation and requiring those landlords to sign up to a national register would introduce an unnecessary and costly additional layer of bureaucracy.”But it is understood that the partial success of Rent Smart Wales, which is a national register of landlords by the back door, and Scotland’s compulsory scheme, are believed to have swayed the government to recommend a similar scheme for England.John Stewart (left), Policy Manager for the Residential Landlords Association, said: “Ministers have repeatedly made clear that a national register of landlords would become an unnecessary and costly additional layer of bureaucracy. We agree. All it would become is a list of good landlords which brings us no closer to finding the crooks that operate under the radar.”Licensing reviewIn June last year the government revealed its intention to review selective licensing in the UK, which has seen an increasing trend in local authorities bringing in blanket licensing both for HMO and general rental properties.The latest to introduce this, as The Negotiator reported last week, is Lewisham council, which has asked the Secretary of State for permission to licence all of the privately rented properties within its boundaries.In January this year it was also announced that all landlords are to be required to join a redress scheme.

first_imgUndoubtedly the most asked question I get on my rounds here in New Harmony is, “What’s going on with the Bridge?” When I deliver my paper, inevitably the question keeps popping up. Well, here’s a bit of an update!The initiative to bring life back into the Harmony Way Bridge is still getting traction. Lora Arnsberg and the Bridge Committee is making progress in Illinois. There were meetings on the other side of the river several months ago by Bridge Committee members and Officials and Citizens over there, now they seem to be paying off. After all, we need Illinois to be a participant and a supporter of this project. Our towns actually make up one community that has been separated for the past seven years by the closing of our common bridge connection.We are all currently waiting for Indiana Governor Holcomb, Posey County Commission President Jim Alsop and New Harmony Town Council President Alvin Blaylock to make their appointments to the new Indiana Harmony Way Bridge Authority. So far that hasn’t happened. When it does it will open the door for Indiana Regional Cities to transfer some $350,000 to the Authority for work to be done on our bridge. It will also open the door for the White County Bridge Commission to transfer the ownership of the bridge to the Authority. Lora says that, “Until these things are nailed down there’s not much to do in public meetings or otherwise!”Most recently she reported to the New Harmony Gazette that, “The Illinois bridge legislation passed their House by 117-0 and passed the Senate 52-2. The Illinois Governor has 60 days to sign, veto or just let it become law without signature. The final version was good and includes the property tax exemption, the ability to bond and apply for grants. All that we asked for.”This is all good news and shows remarkable progress and cooperation between our two States. I’m sure all of you feel the same as I do, that this Bridge Committee has done truly outstanding work on something that has needed a change like this since 1940. “WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE HARMONY WAY BRIDGE?”June 4, 2018 by: Dan Barton, Publisher of the New Harmony Gazettecenter_img FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

vSAN Ready Nodes on PowerEdge MX

first_imgDell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are coming to the new Dell EMC PowerEdge MX architecture. This combination makes a lot of exciting things possible.The best of two worlds comes together this week as we announce new Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes specifically for the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX modular architecture. This combination sweetens the pot for organizations that want to capitalize on the power of vSAN on their terms.In this post, I will highlight some of the cool things about this combination. But, first, let’s set the stage with a little background.PowerEdge MX is a new modular infrastructure solution for the modern data center. It was introduced with a sneak peek at Dell Technologies World in early May and full details were launched just last week. PowerEdge MX is designed with Dell EMC’s kinetic infrastructure, which enables IT shops to flexibly configure and optimize their IT infrastructure for new and emerging workloads with plug-and-play simplicity.PowerEdge MX was designed for the software-defined data center, with customizable modules of compute, storage and networking. VMware vSAN is a core building block for the SDDC. So, when your pair PowerEdge MX with VMware vSAN, you’re ready for a hyper-converged match made in heaven when flexibility, provided by PowerEdge MX’s configurations, is key.Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes make it all even easier for your organization. These pre‑configured and validated building blocks reduce deployment risks, improve storage efficiency, and let you quickly and easily scale storage as needed.Now let’s get to the news of the day — some of the coolest things about vSAN Ready Nodes in the PowerEdge MX architecture.Really fast resultsThe PowerEdge MX architecture keeps storage and compute close together for faster results. In fact, you can get up to 72% better throughput and up to 73% lower latency than HPE Synergy or Cisco UCS.* Need to move VMs? No problem. The Dell EMC PowerEdge MX solution also moves VMs in up to 42% less time than HPE Synergy or Cisco UCS, according to Principled Technologies testing.Simplified networkingTop-of-rack (ToR) switches are integrated into the MX7000 chassis. This integration simplifies deployment and reduces complexity while offering connectivity to additional infrastructure in the rack. So that is one less thing to worry about. And, even better, you get your ToR switches delivered with significantly less cabling.SDDC ready in a boxWith vSAN Ready Nodes on Dell EMC PowerEdge MX, you’ve got a software-defined ready infrastructure in one flexible chassis. You can put up to eight vSAN Ready Nodes in an MX7000 chassis to create a foundation for a self-sustained VMware Cloud Foundation cluster with right-sized compute, storage and ToR switches. And it’s all in one high-density package. You can put up to six drives in each MX740c compute sled for maximum density. Competing infrastructure offerings from HPE and Cisco have only two drives per compute sled.Simplified managementWhen you leverage vSAN Ready Nodes in the PowerEdge MX architecture, you can take advantage of OpenManage integration for VMware vCenter. This virtual appliance can reduce the tools and tasks associated with management and deployment of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers in your virtual environment. This plug-in reduces complexity by natively integrating key management capabilities into the vCenter console, and minimizes risk with streamlined firmware updates, deep visibility into inventory, health and warranty details.Check it outAll of this cool stuff is only part of the story. For a more detailed look at the capabilities and benefits of vSAN Ready Nodes on Dell EMC PowerEdge MX architecture, visit  And, if you’re here at VMworld this week in Las Vegas, come see the PowerEdge MX on display for the first time at the Dell Technologies booth #1276 in the expo hall.*“Migrate VMs faster with a new Dell EMC PowerEdge MX solution,” Principled Technologies, August 2018.last_img read more

Drought Tolerant Sorghum

first_imgWhen University of Georgia plant geneticist Andrew Paterson began searching for lines of sorghum that might survive in some of the most parched places in the world, he didn’t plant trials in the desert.He started out by researching which plants could survive a winter in Georgia.“We don’t see a lot of correlation between surviving cold and surviving drought,” Paterson said.But when sorghum that could withstand a Georgia winter was planted half a world away, the results were stunning: 48 percent survived eight months without rain in the north African nation of Mali.Paterson, a Regents Professor in UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, heads up the Feed the Future Innovation Laboratory for Climate-Resilient Sorghum. The $4.98 million U.S. Agency for International Development Feed the Future project is aimed at creating varieties of sorghum that can survive extreme drought and appeal to those who eat the cereal as part of their traditional diet.Sorghum – a crop sometimes called the “camel of cereals” because of its ability to withstand drought – requires about one-third less water than wheat and half of the water maize needs. It is a native plant and traditional staple crop in some African countries where climate change is exacerbating food insecurity, so providing farmers with an even more drought-resilient sorghum could give them a crop to count on, even in the driest years.In the U.S., sorghum is used mostly for animal feed and fuel. It’s also a component in syrup and gluten-free versions of otherwise starchy products (like beer), but it’s not a major food crop.“It’s just not part of our culture,” Paterson said. “But sorghum is an important food in parts of Africa, where some people may receive 30 percent of their daily calories from it. It may be compared to rice in some Asian cultures.” In its third year, the climate-resilient sorghum project has made progress in its mission to use genomics tools to create even hardier varieties of sorghum, all the while promoting sustainable farming by preserving and restoring soil and water resources.The work started in Georgia when Paterson began to look for sorghum lines that could grow perennially.Like most cereal grains, sorghum is an annual, producing seeds and dying at the end of each growing season, only to start again from seeds in the next season. This requires farmers to till and replant each year, disturbing the soil each time. Minimizing that soil disruption can curtail erosion and keep topsoil in place.Growing trials in Georgia and coordinating with The Land Institute’s Stan Cox in Kansas, Paterson started to see which lines of sorghum could survive the cold of winter, a first step to see which lines might live weeks without rain.“We had many genotypes that could overwinter in Georgia and even a few that could overwinter in Kansas,” he said.A student working with Paterson and Cox, Wenqian Kong, chose about 100 lines that had favorable yield and other properties, and a collaborator in Mali, Eva Weltzien with the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), took over.“She planted the lines about June, and they went through their normal growing season. Then, they had an eight-month period with absolutely no rainfall. About 48 percent of the lines had some survival,” Paterson said.Now, Paterson and colleagues are looking for diagnostic DNA markers in those survivors that might help them select for the resiliency trait without enduring another eight-month dry season.The ability to survive both cold and drought is connected to the plant’s ability to make rhizomes, underground shoots that may seem like roots, but are actually stems that can store energy for the plant and grow into an above-ground stem.Its ability to grow rhizomes led Paterson to another plant that might lend some of its resiliency to sorghum: Johnsongrass.Considered by farmers and gardeners to be a noxious weed, Johnsongrass is prolific at growing rhizomes, spreading itself into fields and garden plots and pastures throughout the U.S. Looking to give a small portion of that ability to sorghum, Paterson used “backcrossing,” a traditional breeding process that repeatedly introduces a desired trait into a cross between two plants.“We made a backcross to sorghum, so the progeny are 75-percent sorghum, 25-percent Johnsongrass,” he said.The progeny flowered at the wrong time for Africa, but proved the concept that the Johnsongrass trait could be transferred into sorghum.The discovery couldn’t come at a better time.The countries of sub-Saharan Africa – where sorghum is a traditional crop – are some of the most vulnerable in the world to climate change. Drought has always been a concern, but now prolonged and extreme drought has become the worry.In 2015, Ethiopia was gripped in a drought so intense that Paterson’s partners there couldn’t test drought tolerance of new varieties.“They had no irrigation, so they were dependent on rainfall that they just weren’t getting. They made a judgment call that they didn’t want to lose the seed, so they didn’t plant that year,” he said. “They had enough rain this year, and the experiment is going well. It is sort of ironic that it is a challenge to study drought in certain places because drought has gotten so bad that even sorghum isn’t going to make it.”By the end of the project in 2018, plant breeders in Mali, Ethiopia and elsewhere in Africa will have adapted lines of sorghum that are based on their local varieties, but with new mechanisms of drought resiliency bred into them.“That will be the biggest single deliverable of the project,” Paterson said. “It is also important that we were able to get the perennial lines through both cold seasons and dry seasons. Our African partners will continue to work toward creating perennial lines that can get multiple crops from a single planting.”Paterson, who also heads UGA’s Plant Genome Mapping Laboratory, started working with sorghum 25 years ago as a junior faculty member at Texas A&M University.The plant’s simplicity attracted him. Its potential keeps him intrigued.“Among cereals, sorghum has a relatively small genome, which was useful for genomics studies,” he said. “But it has some interesting features, including climate resilience.“Drought tolerance is only going to become more important over time.”last_img read more

Casella Waste announces third quarter results: revenues up, income lags

first_img RUTLAND, VT–(Marketwire – March 01, 2011) – Casella Waste Systems, Inc. Casella Waste Systems Inc,Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CWST), a regional solid waste, recycling and resource management services company, today reported financial results for its third quarter fiscal year 2011. For the quarter ended January 31, 2011, revenues were $111.6 million, up $1.7 million or 1.6 percent over the same quarter last year, driven mainly by solid waste volume growth and higher commodity prices. Operating income was $6.3 million for the quarter, down $1.1 million from the same quarter last year. The company’s net loss applicable to common shareholders was ($6.4) million, or ($0.24) per common share for the quarter, compared to ($4.4) million, or ($0.17) per share for the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA* for the quarter was $22.4 million, down $1.6 million from same quarter last year. “While our third quarter results were below last year’s performance and our plan, the underperformance was mainly driven by adverse weather and non-recurring events,” said John W. Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste Systems. “The bad winter weather during the quarter impacted operational performance, with lower than projected productivity throughout the solid waste business and lower waste volumes. Our landfill volumes were lower year-over-year by 4.4 percent, with the negative variance attributable to reaching annual permit limits at several key sites in early December and lower volumes in January due to the bad weather.””As expected in the quarter, the lower energy prices at Maine Energy, the final closure of the Pine Tree landfill in Q3 fiscal year 2010, and the sale of the Cape Cod assets in Q1 fiscal year 2011 led to a negative $0.6 million year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA variance,” Casella said. “Excluding these explainable negative impacts and divestiture transaction costs in the quarter that were not allocated to discontinued operations, Adjusted EBITDA was down $0.8 million year-over-year.””Since last quarter our team has done an excellent job completing important long-term strategic goals aimed at improving our balance sheet today and better positioning us for the future,” Casella said. “These strategic accomplishments include:”We successfully divested our non-integrated recycling facilities for $134.1 million, with net proceeds of approximately $120.0 million used to permanently pay-off our Term Loan B.”We refinanced our $195.0 million 9.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2013 with new $200.0 million 7.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2019, yielding significant interest savings.”We acquired a municipal solid waste landfill in McKean County, PA out of bankruptcy proceedings for $0.5 million in cash and the assumption of certain contractual obligations.”Nine Months Financial ResultsFor the nine months ended January 31, 2011, revenues were $356.5 million, up $11.6 million or 3.4 percent over the same period last year. Operating income was $31.2 million for the nine month period, up $6.1 million from the same period last year, including a $3.5 million gain on sale of assets. The company’s net loss applicable to common shareholders was ($10.4) million, or ($0.40) per common share for the nine month period, compared to ($8.7) million, or ($0.34) per share for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $84.5 million for the nine month period, up $2.4 million from same period last year. While the actual completion of the divestiture of the non-integrated recycling assets occurred during the fourth quarter on March 1, 2011, the third quarter and nine month year to date results reflect discontinued operations treatment for these assets in accordance with GAAP.Fiscal 2011 OutlookThe following ranges reflect updated guidance for fiscal year 2011, including discontinued operations treatment for the divestiture of the non- integrated recycling facilities in the fourth quarter. Revenues between $460.0 million and $468.0 million;Adjusted EBITDA* between $102.0 million and $106.0 million; andCapital expenditures between $51.0 million and $55.0 million.In recognition of the value created through the successful divestiture of the non-integrated recycling assets and the steps taken to recapitalize our balance sheet at lower interest rates, the board approved a $3.5 million discretionary bonus to management, which is reflected in the above guidance. Management will not receive a cash incentive bonus in addition to this discretionary bonus for this fiscal year. Since bonuses were not accrued for during the 9 months year-to-date period, the discretionary bonus will be fully expensed in the fourth quarter. We plan to announce fiscal year 2012 guidance on our year end conference call in June.*Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresIn addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the company also discloses earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for accretion, depletion of landfill operating lease obligations, severance and reorganization charges, a goodwill impairment charge, an environmental remediation charge as well as development project charges (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a non-GAAP measure. The company also discloses Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures, less payments on landfill operating leases, less assets acquired through financing leases, plus proceeds from sales of property and equipment, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to Net Income (Loss), while Free Cash Flow is reconciled to Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities.We present Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow because we consider them important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of our results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to further understand our “core operating performance.” We believe our “core operating performance” represents our on-going performance in the ordinary course of operations. We believe that providing Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow to investors, in addition to corresponding income statement and cash flow statement measures, provides investors the benefit of viewing our performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and understanding how the core business and its results of operations may look in the future. We further believe that providing this information allows our investors greater transparency and a better understanding of our core financial performance. In addition, the instruments governing our indebtedness use EBITDA (with additional adjustments) to measure our compliance with covenants such as interest coverage, leverage and debt incurrence.Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., and may be different from Adjusted EBITDA or Free Cash Flow presented by other companies.About Casella Waste Systems, Inc.Casella Waste Systems, Inc., headquartered in Rutland, Vermont, provides solid waste management services consisting of collection, transfer, disposal, and recycling services in the northeastern United States.

We also disclose Free Cash Flow,which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capitalexpenditures, less payments on landfill operating leases, less assetsacquired through financing leases, plus proceeds from sales of property andequipment, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled toNet loss, while Free Cash Flow is reconciled to Net Cash Provided byOperating Activities.We present Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow because we consider themimportant supplemental measures of our performance and believe they arefrequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interestedparties in the evaluation of our results. Management uses these non-GAAPmeasures to further understand our “core operating performance.” We believeour “core operating performance” represents our on-going performance in theordinary course of operations. We believe that providing Adjusted EBITDAand Free Cash Flow to investors, in addition to corresponding incomestatement and cash flow statement measures, provides investors the benefitof viewing our performance using the same financial metrics that themanagement team uses in making many key decisions and understanding how thecore business and its results of operations may look in the future. Wefurther believe that providing this information allows our investorsgreater transparency and a better understanding of our core financialperformance. In addition, the instruments governing our indebtedness useEBITDA (with additional adjustments) to measure our compliance withcovenants such as interest coverage, leverage and debt incurrence.Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternativefor, GAAP in the U.S. Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not beconsidered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial informationpresented in accordance with GAAP in the U.S., and may be different fromAdjusted EBITDA or Free Cash Flow presented by other companies.Following is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss: Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended ——————– ——————– January January January January 31, 2011 31, 2010 31, 2011 31, 2010 ——— ——— ——— ———Net Loss Applicable to Common Stockholders $ (6,365) $ (4,376) $ (10,421) $ (8,705) Income from discontinued operations, net (1,902) (799) (1,255) (1,814) Loss (income) on disposal of discontinued operations, net 1,368 (239) 1,984 (328) Provision for income taxes 1,079 572 2,139 941 Interest expense, net 12,174 12,520 36,603 33,657 Depreciation and amortization 13,573 13,850 44,776 49,327 Other (income) expense, net (65) (268) 2,161 1,329 Severance and reorganization charges – 78 – 78 Depletion of landfill operating lease obligations 1,714 1,771 6,013 4,936 Interest accretion on landfill and environmental remediation liabilities 832 931 2,487 2,668 ——— ——— ——— ———Adjusted EBITDA (2) $ 22,408 $ 24,040 $ 84,487 $ 82,089 ========= ========= ========= =========Following is a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow to Net Cash Provided byOperating Activities: Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended ——————– ——————– January January January January 31, 2011 31, 2010 31, 2011 31, 2010 ——— ——— ——— ———Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities $ 8,804 $ 7,232 $ 45,254 $ 43,702Capital expenditures (10,669) (6,284) (41,443) (38,446)Payments on landfill operating lease contracts (2,727) (3,265) (4,977) (7,803)Proceeds from divestiture and sale of property and equipment 143 285 8,164 2,782Assets acquired through financing leases – (404) – (404) ——— ——— ——— ———Free Cash Flow (2) $ (4,449) $ (2,436) $ 6,998 $ (169) ========= ========= ========= ========= CASELLA WASTE SYSTEMS, INC.

Haiti Leader Calls For ‘Red Helmet’ UN Force

first_imgBy Dialogo April 02, 2010 Haitian President René Préval has given his backing to the creation of a UN “red helmet” humanitarian rapid reaction force which could swing into action within hours of natural disasters. In a speech before a donor’s conference at the UN headquarters on Wednesday to pledge help for his quake-hit nation, Préval argued there was a “need for creating a humanitarian intervention force under the auspices of the UN to coordinate response to disasters, which are bound to occur.” Along with the January 12 quake that left over 220,000 people dead, Préval said recent major natural disasters such as the December 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean and 2008’s Cyclone Nargis that struck Myanmar highlighted the need for rapid intervention to save the maximum numbers of lives. Préval was backed in his call by former French minister Nicole Guedj, who founded the “Red Helmet Foundation,” to lobby for the humanitarian force. UN chief Ban Ki-moon has called the goal “a good project that deserves study and reflection,” he added.

Netherlands roundup: Smurfit to pay €2.4m for transfer to single pension plan

first_imgPackaging material manufacturer Smurfit Kappa and the unions have reached an agreement on the firm’s plan to place pensions accrual for its Dutch staff with a single pension fund.The employer will pay an additional contribution of €2.4m to its €772m pension fund.In addition, the 300 active participants of the €142m Pensioenfonds Smurfit Nederland, who are to join the larger scheme, will now pay the same premium as their Smurfit Kappa colleague members and will join the same pension plan.Under the initial plan, the transferring participants would have to pay a higher contribution, while their accrued pension – reinsured by Nationale Nederlanden – would no longer be raised for inflation compensation. The parties have agreed that the €2.4m would be paid into a separate deposit, to be managed by the remaining pension fund for all (former) participants of Pensioenfonds Smurfit Nederland, which is to be liquidated.The employer had already promised to pay €550,000 in total for the transfer of defined contribution plans to Smurfit Kappa pension fund, as well as the transfer of defined benefit pensions to Nationale Nederlanden.Any assets remaining after the liquidation of the Pensioenfonds Smurfit Nederland would be used for a one-off indexation of pension rights at the insurer, according to the parties.At the end of November, the funding ratio at Smurfit Kappa stood at 101.4%.Van Lanschot scheme closes to new entrantsThe €1.1bn pension fund of Dutch boutique investor Van Lanschot Kempen has closed to new entrants as of 1 January.On its website, it said it was assessing possible scenarios for its future, while highlighting that it was able to continue independently for the time being.It announced it had sufficient financial means to pay for pensions provision without affecting its funding ratio, and that its governance was up-to-date.According to the pension fund, 2020 was a “logical moment” to look at new pension arrangements, as the contract for pensions provision between the employer and the scheme expired at the end of 2019.Currently, the pension fund implements a defined benefit plan for employees with a salary up to €52,807, and defined contribution arrangements for any surplus salary.A spokesman for the company said new pensions accrual – in a DC plan – was placed with ASR, adding that the employer intended to collectively transfer the accrued DC capital for the salary part exceeding €52,807 to ASR.At the end of November, the scheme’s coverage ratio stood at 107.8%. The pension fund has approximately 1,120 active participants, 2,355 deferred members and 795 pensioners.last_img read more

Lawmakers favor POGO shut down

Indian Premier League IPL 2019: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians clash marred by no-ball controversy

first_imghighlights New Delhi: First, the Mankading controversy and now no-balls. The IPL 2019 tournament is fast being remembered for these events and it has raised questions on the standard of umpiring in the event. The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians was poised on a knife-edge with AB de Villiers batting brilliantly. Jasprit Bumrah bowled two brilliant death overs, conceding just five runs in two overs while Lasith Malinga conceded a six in the first ball of the last over. With seven runs needed off one ball, Malinga bowled a low full toss and Shivam Dube, the batsman missed out and Mumbai Indians won the game by six runs to register their first win in this tournament.However, when the players were shaking hands, replays showed that Malinga had overstepped and this led to sharp criticism regarding the standard of umpiring from both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, the captains of both the franchises. Kohli was furious when he said, “We are playing at the IPL level. It’s not club level, the umpires should have their eyes open. That was a big no-ball. We should have done a better job with the ball after they were seven down. The last few overs were brutal for us. Bit of a mistake from me to take Bumrah on at that time. Bumrah makes a hell of a difference in any team,” Kohli said. Even Rohit criticised the umpiring in the game. “I just got to know when we crossed the rope. Somebody just told me it was a no-ball. These kind of mistakes are not good for the game of cricket, it’s pretty simple, the over before that. Bumrah bowled a ball which wasn’t a wide ball. Those are game-changers,” Rohit said.In the previous game between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab at the Eden Gardens, Mohammed Shami bowled Andre Russell with a perfect yorker but that was declared a no-ball as there were only three fielders inside the circle for Kings XI Punjab. Russell made Kings XI Punjab pay and in the end, Kolkata Knight Riders emerged victors by 28 runs.The Mankading controversy erupted in the IPL clash in Jaipur and this time, it involved Kings XI Punjab again. Jos Buttler was guiding Rajasthan Royals towards victory but Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin mankaded Buttler who was out of the crease and that led to a huge uproar. With these two no-balls and especially the umpiring in the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians game, IPL 2019 has suddenly come alive. Mumbai Indians won the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore by six runs.The no-ball was not spotted by the umpire which led to criticism.Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their second game in IPL 2019.

Russell wins Pandya duel as Knight Riders end losing streak

first_imgANDRE Russell was in the runs again as Kolkata Knight Riders overcame Hardik Pandya’s onslaught for Mumbai Indians to end a six-game losing streak in the Indian Premier League.West Indies all-rounder Russell blasted 80 from just 40 deliveries to help the Knight Riders reach 232-2 – the highest score posted by any team in this season’s competition so far.Shubman Gill made 76 as he combined with opening partner Chris Lynn (54) to put on 96 for the first wicket, laying the ideal platform for Russell, who came out to bat at number three.Kolkata smashed 75 runs from the final five overs of their innings and appeared set for a comfortable victory when they reduced their opponents to 58-4 in reply.Pandya made them work for the win by plundering 91 in a hurry – hitting nine sixes in his 36-ball knock – before he was caught by Russell, who capped a fine display by also taking 2-25 with the ball.Sunil Narine and Harry Gurney also claimed two wickets apiece as Mumbai finished up on a respectable 198-7, leaving the final margin of victory at 34 runs.ANDRE’S GIANT HITTINGRussell had called for Kolkata’s management team to be flexible when it came to his batting position and he was duly given the chance to impress with a promotion up the order.After managing a single from his first four deliveries, the Jamaican blasted back-to-back sixes at the end of Rahul Chahar’s spell as he quickly moved through the gears.He also took a liking to Lasith Malinga in the closing stages, smashing the Sri Lankan paceman for 20 runs in the final over of the innings to post his best score in a highly productive campaign.Russell has now reached the landmark of 50 IPL sixes in 2019, while his tally of 486 runs means he sits only behind David Warner (611) in the top-scorers list.Mumbai lost Quinton de Kock for a four-ball duck as they struggled in pursuit of such a huge target. Gurney trapped Rohit Sharma lbw for 12 and Russell won the battle with West Indies team-mate Evin Lewis, who edged behind to depart for 15.Pandya arrived at the crease following the dismissal of Suryakumar Yadav (26) and, together with Kieron Pollard (20), added 63 for the fifth wicket.last_img read more

Lawal Charges Iheanacho on Consistency

first_imgThe ex-Roda winger, however, believes pre-season is not a yardstick to measure the performance of any player and wants the former Manchester City striker to replicate the form when the new season commences.“I think he has to prepare well for the new season. Pre-season cannot show what a player is capable of doing until the season starts. The season is long, he needs to take his chances and be consistent,” Lawal told Goal.“As a striker, your responsibility is scoring goals, it does not matter if you play badly what is important is scoring. He was scoring very well in Manchester City. He has to play the same way for Leicester City.”Iheanacho’s failure to impress with the Foxes last season cost him a chance to make Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where the Super Eagles finished third.“If he is playing well for Leicester, I believe the Super Eagles coach will recall him back to the squad,” he continued.“The other players who were selected by the coach were playing well for their clubs that’s why they made the squad. If he does the same he will get his chance.”Iheanacho will hope to hit the ground running when Leicester take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening 2019-20 Premier League game on August 11.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Former Nigeria international Garba Lawal has advised Kelechi Iheanacho to be consistent in scoring goals for Leicester City when the 2019-20 season gets underway.The 22-year-old delivered underwhelming performances last term, scoring only two goals in 35 appearances across all competitions for the Foxes.The forward, has, however, been impressive in the pre-season, having scored three goals in two games for the King Power Stadium outfit.last_img read more

Women of Troy fall to Utes on the road

first_imgA little over a week ago, the USC Women of Troy were riding a five-game winning streak, looking like legitimate contenders for the Pac-12 crown.Just off the mark · Freshman forward Alexyz Vaioletama was held to just four points and seven rebounds against Utah. The Women of Troy shot just under 38 percent for the game and shot only six free throws. – Chris Pham | Daily TrojanNow they are looking for answers.After their 55-63 road loss to Utah (10-10, 3-6) on Saturday, the Women of Troy (10-9, 5-4) have lost three consecutive games. USC now sits at fourth in the conference after being in second place earlier this month.In a game dominated by runs from both teams, the Utes pulled away in the final minute of action to steal what seemed to be a sure USC victory when the Women of Troy began the game with a 17-0 run.After USC sophomore forward Cassie Harberts’ free throws cut Utah’s late lead to three with 1:08 remaining, the Women of Troy misfired four times while the Utes sank five free throws to put the game out of reach.To counter a slow first half, Utah scored 42 points on 54 percent shooting in the latter 20 minutes behind forward Michelle Plouffe’s game-high 21 points, which all came in the second half.“We need to lock down on defense and get out on shooters,” Harberts said. “Plouffe had too many wide open shots, and she was one of the main reasons for their runs.”After USC pieced together a 9-2 run for a nine-point lead following halftime, Plouffe dropped eight points in two and a half minutes, followed by three consecutive layups by forward Taryn Wicijowski to give Utah a five-point advantage.The Women of Troy responded with a quick 7-2 run, highlighted by junior forward Christina Marinacci’s four-point play. The teams were deadlocked at 43 apiece with 9:29 remaining, but that was the closest USC would get for the rest of the game.USC had hoped that a matchup against a team with the weakest record in the conference would help them bounce back from two narrow losses against Oregon State and Colorado in the past week.“We feel like we need something to get us back up on our feet and to get our identity back, and we thought this game was going to be it,” Harberts said.For the first nine and a half minutes of the game, it looked like a win was certain. USC held Utah scoreless on 0-for-12 shooting to start the game with an early 17-point lead.Freshman guard Ariya Crook, who replaced injured senior guard Briana Gilbreath in the starting lineup, scored eight of her career-high 17 points during the run.“Briana was out, so I had to step up,” Crook said. “I attacked the basket and tried to bring energy to the team.”Nevertheless, Crook and her teammates could not stop Utah’s rapid turnaround.Utah guard Iwalani Rodrigues ended her team’s early drought with an and-one layup, which sparked a 16-2 run that cut the Utes’ deficit to three.The rest of the game featured similar Utah runs that USC’s premier defender Gilbreath could have helped slowed down.Gilbreath, the team’s leader in blocks and steals per game, sat out with a knee injury sustained in the second half of USC’s 67-69 loss to Colorado last Thursday.“In the second half, all of our energy just went down. We tried to catch up but it was too late,” Crook said. “We just have to improve on that and keep our energy up the whole game.”With their two-game road trip wrapped up, the Women of Troy return home to face non-conference opponent UC Santa Barbara (8-11, 3-5) on Tuesday at 7 p.m.last_img read more

COLUMN: NBA can’t use title as an excuse for resting

first_imgLast Saturday’s primetime NBA game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers was overshadowed. No, the culprit wasn’t the NCAA Tournament. It was the fact that a game that — on paper — featured the likes of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love duking it out against Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan … well, didn’t.As a sold-out Staples Center and nationwide audience on ABC tuned into the game, Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue rested his Big Three of James, Irving and Love, setting the stage for a 30-point Clippers blowout. By the fourth quarter, fans expecting a clash of Eastern and Western Conference titans were stuck watching the likes of Kay Felder and Raymond Felton run out the clock.This was the second consecutive Saturday night game (the marquee NBA matchup of the week) that suffered from resting superstars. On March 13, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr sat Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, and the star-less Warriors rolled over versus San Antonio in an 85-107 drubbing. The game fell 12 percent in ratings and 5 percent in viewership from the same Warriors-Spurs matchup in 2016. The tilt in Los Angeles seven days later was even worse, tying the record for lowest-rated NBA game ever on broadcast television. So, on Tuesday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver sent a memo out to league owners.“Decisions of this kind do not merely implicate issues of player health and team performance on the court,” the memo said. “They also can affect fans and business partners, impact our reputation and damage the perception of our game. With so much at stake, it is simply not acceptable for Governors to be uninvolved or to defer decision-making authority on these matters to others in their organizations.”Silver essentially asked owners to step in and make sure coaches and players can’t hurt the NBA’s product by periodically resting superstars en masse. The response to the memo was predictable. Cleveland general manager David Griffin insisted it wasn’t his responsibility to prioritize television partners.“They’re paying me to win a championship,” Griffin said. “I’m not overly concerned about the perception of it. We literally had one guy rest tonight, and everybody else was reasonably injured, so I don’t feel like we did anything terribly egregious.”As a sports fan, my knee-jerk reaction was to side with Griffin in this debate. After all, we gripe when our favorite teams don’t trade for a player or don’t spend enough money in free agency because we want that championship. We get angry over hirings and firings because we say it doesn’t give the team the best chance to win. So then how can we complain about preserving star players for the playoff run, when they will be needed most? Sure, it stinks to see James or Curry on the bench in March, but does it really matter as long as they’re playing every minute come May and June? It shouldn’t.And though I stand by that principle, I also can’t bring myself to agree with Griffin’s words. Because history shows that NBA championships aren’t won by taking a handful of games off during the regular season; in fact, many all-time greats have lifted the Larry O’Brien Trophy after being iron men from October through June. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant combined for 11 rings during their careers, and they started the full 82-game regular season slate in five of those championship-winning seasons, starting 80 games or more in seven. Jordan actually played all 246 regular-season tilts from 1995-1998 while winning three championships in three seasons — and this run began when Jordan was 32.The 32-year-old James, meanwhile, has only reached the 80-game threshold twice in his career, last in 2009: the penultimate year of his first stint with the Cavaliers. He also hasn’t logged a 3,000-minute season since his debut season in Miami in 2010, while Jordan only failed to do so in three of his 15 NBA seasons— even completing a 2,709-minute campaign in his age-39 campaign.Why does James require more rest than Jordan did? It’s ludicrous to say James is physically inferior (I mean, just look at the guy), and one player’s injury history doesn’t stand out over the other’s. It simply doesn’t make sense that Jordan was able to endure that much wear and tear in a more primitive era of sports medicine while James — and his fellow NBA superstars — can’t do so today.At the end of the day, it boils down to this: James and other stars demand the occasional day off. And hey, who am I to judge? Basketball is a job for these people, and you can’t blame them for calling in sick every once in a while to sit around all day watching sports.It is frustrating, though, to hear selfish decisions framed as selfless ones. Reports after Saturday’s game suggested James had been irked at being benched but accepted his coach’s decision. Considering James pushed former coach David Blatt out of Cleveland last season, it seems unlikely he lets Lue call his shots, especially when it comes to his spot in the lineup.Griffin was right: Teams’ personnel decisions should be based on winning, not the whims of TV stations. But he is also wrong: The Cavaliers’ decision to rest their stars on Saturday was not based on winning. If it had been, James and company would have likely taken a seat on Sunday against the Lakers, who Cleveland would have a better chance of beating without its stars. And with the Cavs nursing just a two-game lead over Boston atop the Eastern Conference, they could have used an extra win in Los Angeles. Alas, Cleveland’s stars chose to rest, and to be honest, that doesn’t really matter to fans (it doesn’t take much effort to flip the channel). But don’t pop a squat on the bench and tell us you’re ultimately doing it for a championship — that is simply false. Just relax and enjoy your day off.Ollie Jung is a junior studying print and digital journalism. He is also a sports editor for the Daily Trojan.

Alexa Romero fans 7 batters in 9-1 win over Notre Dame

first_img Published on March 29, 2019 at 7:52 pm Contact Danny: [email protected] | @DannyEmerman With the bases loaded and two outs, Alexa Romero twisted her hips, brought her hands together above her head and delivered a 1-2 fastball on the outside corner of the plate.“In that moment,” Romero said, “I was just like, ‘Let’s go at her.’”Notre Dame’s MK Bonamy swung and tipped the pitch, but Syracuse catcher Gianna Carideo squeezed the foul ball for the final out of the third inning. Romero released a scream and pointed her glove toward her catcher before they high-fived and returned to the dugout.After escaping the bases-loaded jam, Romero retired the next eight Notre Dame batters to stave off the Fighting Irish long enough for the SU offense to produce. Syracuse (13-18, 3-4 Atlantic Coast) fed off of Romero’s emotion in the circle and rallied to score seven runs in the sixth inning to run-rule Notre Dame (19-11, 3-4), 9-1.“All we ask is that Lex (Romero) gives the offense a chance,” head coach Shannon Doepking said after calling Romero one of the best pitchers in the ACC.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHitters didn’t even swing on three of Romero’s seven strikeouts. Romero locked up batters with her curveball, which moves toward right-handed hitters and away from lefties. To end the second inning, Romero got Payton Tidd to bite on an elevated rising fastball, another pitch she had command of, Romero and Carideo said.Carideo caught all seven of Romero’s strikeouts, including the foul tip that stranded three base-runners in the third inning. Before that out, Romero allowed her only run of the game off an RBI single from Cait Brooks. At the time, SU had only one hit and trailed 1-0.After several of Romero’s strikeouts, she screamed, which invigorated Syracuse at the plate. She yelled after striking out Katie Marino in the top of the fifth, and again the next inning.“We see her heart and we want to reciprocate it for her,” third baseman Lailoni Mayfield (2-for-3, RBI) said.Syracuse turned the motivation from Romero into runs. In the fifth inning, Alicia Hansen drove a line drive down the third base line to score Gabby Teran from first. SU took a 2-1 later in the inning when Hansen scored from third by blazing down the base path after a groundout to the pitcher.“Basically,” first baseman Alex Acevedo said, “whenever we’re hitting, we know that we need to produce for Lex since she does so much for us.”Pitching with a lead for the first time, Romero took care of the middle of Notre Dame’s lineup in the top of the sixth, fist-pumping after striking out Bonamy for a second time.Then in the bottom of the sixth, Syracuse’s offense exploded for seven runs, which extended its lead to 9-1 and prematurely ended the game. Acevedo, Mayfield, Hansen and Gabby Teran all recorded RBIs.By keeping Notre Dame off the base paths, Romero bought her team enough time to time up Fighting Irish’s pitchers, Doepking said. In total, Romero limited the Fighting Irish — who entered Friday’s game winning 13 of 16 of its previous games — to one run on four hits in six innings.“I think what you got to see is a leader leading this program and stepping up until we could figure it out offensively,” Doepking said.

Next stage is to seek int’l sanctions against Govt officials – Jagdeo

first_imgProtests for constitutional compliance– warns that int’l pressure on President to call elections will only get worse– President Granger to address nation on holding elections todayOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has warned that his party is prepared to go to the next stage of seeking sanctions from the international community against individuals in the coalition Government, if necessary, to force President David Granger to obey the Constitution.President David Granger during a previous address to the nationOpposition LeaderBharrat JagdeoJagdeo made this pronouncement during a radio programme, “The Hot Seat”, on Tuesday. While he made it clear that the Opposition takes no joy in having to protest against the President for violating the Constitution, it is a necessary fight to protect Guyana’s democracy.“We view it as a tragedy every time we have to protest to get people who took an oath, to uphold the Constitution. It is a tragedy for Guyana. It is a problem for our country when we have to force people to respect the Constitution and the ruling of the court. We don’t do it with excitement, but because it’s necessary. Someone has to stand up for the Constitution.”“The next stage we’ll move, is to seek sanctions against individuals, so that they comply with the Constitution. And we will continue the protests until he names an early election date. We believe he should name one in February. We won’t be happy with it, but at least the country knows there is an end to this.”After strong statements from the diplomatic community calling out President Granger for defying the Constitution, the President in an attempt to hit back at them had criticised them for not having apologised for slavery or paying reparations. Jagdeo described this as clutching at straws.“We believe that international organisations and people accredited to Guyana must work with the Government within a framework. But there are some universal values that go above national frameworks. Issues of human rights. Issues concerning democratic order and the rule of law.”“So when Granger says they’re colonisers, hitting out, what he was [hurting about] was their statement about constitutional rule and democracy… the international pressure will mount on him and he knows this. I think the international community was very explicit. Unconstitutional rule, it will affect business, it will affect investments and their ability to help Guyana.”It was only on Monday that the Commonwealth became the latest in a long line of organisations to criticise the Government for operating outside of the norms of constitutional rule, urging President Granger in a statement to call elections immediately.In the statement, Secretary General Baroness Patricia Scotland urged the President to immediately set an early election date. Scotland noted that this must be done in accordance with the Constitution, so that constitutional rule can be restored.The Secretary General referenced the Caribbean Court of Justice’s ruling, which had clearly set out the timeframe for an election after a No-Confidence Motion. As such, Scotland said in her statement that elections were constitutionally overdue in Guyana.Guyana is one of 53 member countries of the Commonwealth, which comprises almost entirely of former British colonies. The Commonwealth has been known to suspend member countries for violating democratic principles, including Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Pakistan.Even today, Zimbabwe still has a membership application pending before the Commonwealth, with Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa meeting Baroness Scotland on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday to discuss it.It was only days ago that members of the diplomatic corps, such as representatives of the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union, called for the President to immediately name an election date.On Friday last, the Bar Council of the Bar Association of Guyana condemned the coalition Government for its failure to hold General and Regional Elections within the period mandated by the Constitution, which it reminded is supreme law.This came after protests against the President and pressure from the diplomatic community, to ensure the Government acts in accordance with the Constitution. The PPP has already warned that they will continue to protest for constitutional compliance until the President names an election date.Meanwhile, as President David Granger is set to address the nation this evening (Wednesday), a source within the PPP stated that his reluctance to set a date for elections before the end of February 2020 will see continuous protests by citizens. His address comes after he would have met with his Cabinet on Tuesday while barricading several streets around the Ministry of the Presidency.last_img read more

Learning Plaza future uncertain

first_imgPALMDALE – Palmdale Learning Plaza parents are expected to show up in force at a school board hearing Tuesday to discuss a proposed plan to change attendance boundaries districtwide to balance enrollment among campuses. Plaza parents are opposed to one option that would change the school from a school of choice, which draws students from throughout the district, to one that has boundaries. “Our concern is about having our school decimated or eliminated. The programs that we believe are an integral part of our children’s success are being directly threatened,” said parent Tom Lackey, a Palmdale city councilman and former member of the Palmdale School District board. “We feel there are other choices out there. Even though they would not be as easy to do, the pain that it would cause (to set boundaries) would be worth what they would preserve.” Changing the Palmdale Learning Plaza to a neighborhood school would affect about 900 of its students, school officials said. “We have overcrowding at Golden Poppy. Its enrollment has increased by 221 over a one-year period. That’s almost eight classrooms,” said Al Tsai, director of maintenance and operations. This year, the cafeteria stage and a band room are being used for classrooms at Golden Poppy, whose growth is being fueled by housing construction on Palmdale’s east side. Tsai said similar growth will be occurring in the central and western parts of the district where housing tracts are springing up. “We are trying to take a proactive approach to prevent what we did all this year for Golden Poppy,” Tsai said of the district’s proposed rezoning. “Instead of reacting, we are trying to reduce populations in schools in areas that we knew would be growing.” The last time the district made wholesale changes to attendance zones was in 2002-03, when it switched from a year-round to a traditional calendar. District officials intended to revise the boundaries two years ago, when three schools opened, but delayed the changes when enrollment leveled off. Golden Poppy, a K-8 campus, opened in 2004 near 60th Street East and Avenue R. It has more than 900 students, about 200 more than expected, because of housing development nearby. New students in seventh and eighth grades are being sent to Shadow Hills Intermediate, about a mile away. At Juniper Intermediate, enrollment has shrunk for two straight years. The district had expected more than 1,000 students this year, but just 900 enrolled. Yucca School has 750 students, compared with projections of 900.

About 40 Plaza parents showed up at the board meeting last month to protest the recommendation. At last week’s meeting, nearly 100 attended, many of them holding signs outside before the meeting started. The 920-student school is now a kindergarten-through-eighth-grade campus that offers a program that ties into the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate program at local high schools, with a strong emphasis on the performing arts. The school moved into its new $22 million campus at Division Street and Rayburn Road in September 2005 after having been housed in portable buildings at different schools for about 14 years. The district announced in February it wanted to redraw attendance boundaries to balance enrollment among campuses. Some schools, such as Golden Poppy, are jam-packed with children, while classrooms sit empty at Juniper Intermediate and Yucca schools, in areas where student populations have been declining. last_img read more

England goalkeeper criticises ‘third division’ venue after Spain defeat

first_img1 Joe Hart lashed out at the decision to play England’s 2-0 defeat to Spain at the home of third-tier club Hercules.England’s 15-match unbeaten run came to an end in Alicante as Spain comfortably beat Hodgson’s team thanks to goals from Mario Gaspar and Santi Cazorla.Gaspar put the European champions ahead with a stunning acrobatic volley and Cazorla took advantage of some slack defending by curling in the winner eight minutes from time.Hart had no complaints about the result – Spain were good value for the win – but he was deeply unhappy that such a prestige fixture took place at the Estadio Jose Rico Perez, the home of Segunda Division B side Hercules.”It’s strange how we’ve ended up playing on a Third Division pitch for a game like England v Spain,” said Hart, who captained the team in Wayne Rooney’s absence.“It wasn’t good enough, I’m not making excuses.”Hart admitted he was deeply unhappy at seeing England’s unbeaten run, which had stretched back to the World Cup, come to an end.“I’m upset,” the England goalkeeper said.“We’ve done well for a long time now so it’s difficult when we do lose.”We had some chances, we were in the game. We need to dust ourselves off and perform better against France (on Tuesday).”We did break through Spain and we did that on enough occasions but after that we let ourselves down a little bit.’Roy Hodgson lamented England’s poor ball retention on the Costa Blanca.Fabian Delph was guilty of giving the ball away on several occasions and Raheem Sterling surrendered the ball in the build up to Mario’s stunning scissors kick.“We always knew it would be a tough ask to defend against Spain,” the England manager said.“We knew how good they are at keeping the ball and moving it around and we knew we would have to work hard to keep them at bay.“Strangely the (first) goal we conceded was a Spanish counter-attack when we had good possession.“By giving the ball away we gave them the opportunity to counter-attack against us and score a spectacular goal.“We have to learn our lesson from it and remember when we play teams of this quality you can’t afford to make any mistakes because you’re going to get punished“We didn’t pass the ball as well as we would have liked.“We think we can do better in possession and we’ve got players who can be more dangerous in attacking situations.” England’s 15-match unbeaten run came to an end in Alicante as Spain comfortably beat Hodgson’s team last_img read more

first_imgA total of 18 Primary Care Centres and Health Centres in Donegal will introduce a tobacco-free campus policy on Monday, 2 December 2013.From that date, it will no longer be possible to smoke anywhere on these Primary Care Centre or Health Centre grounds; for example, entrances, doorways, walkways, internal roads, car parks or cars.The Primary Care Centres and Health Centres that are leading the way in this initiative are: Convoy Health CentreManorcunningham Health CentreLifford Old Health CentreMuff Health Centre Malin Health CentreQuigley’s Point Health CentreLetterkenny: ARK Medical CentreLetterkenny: Scally PracticeRathmullan Health Centre Brianleck Health CentreDoochary Health CentreFintown Primary Care CentreDunfanaghy Health Centre Glenties Health CentreBundoran Health CentreMountcharles Health CentreDunkineely Health CentreKillybegs Health CentreAs healthcare providers in Donegal, these Primary Care and Health Centres are committed to reducing the use of tobacco and its harmful health effects.The Tobacco Free Campus Policy in the 18 Centres aims to create a healthier, smoke-free, clean environment for the clients, staff, visitors and contract workers.Dr Gearoid O’Rourke GP said lung cancer is the commonest cause of cancer death in men and women.“In fact lung cancer kills more people than do the next three common cancers combined. Yet lung cancer is almost entirely preventable.“About 1,650 people in Ireland die from lung cancer every year. Smoking cigarettes is by far the biggest risk factor and is responsible for 90% of cases. There are over 4,000 chemicals in every cigarette and at least 55 are known to cause cancer.“The risk of developing lung cancer is also dose dependent. For example, if you smoke just one cigarette a day, you are three times more likely to get lung cancer than a non-smoker. However, if you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, you are 20 times more likely to get lung cancer than a non-smoker.“Even if you do not smoke, ‘passive smoking’ can increase your risk of developing lung cancer. Research has found that non-smoking women who share their house with a smoking partner are 27% more likely to develop lung cancer than non-smoking women who live with a non-smoking partner.Fiona Boyle, Smoking Cessation Advisor, HSE Donegal says, “The HSE has set a target of introducing a Smoke-Free Campus Policy to all health campuses by 2015.“We are introducing this policy in one third of Donegal’s Primary Care Centres on Monday, 2 December. We are urging all doctors and allied healthcare workers to support the Tobacco Free Campus Policy initiative and join with us in sending a clear, strong and unambiguous message against Tobacco.“The Tobacco Free Campus policy will lead to a better health outcome for patients by treating tobacco addiction as a care issue and we are actively promoting smoking cessation to support patients to quit. The introduction of a Tobacco Free Campus policy will take time but the success of this type of policy in other places, such as on the Letterkenny General Hospital campus, indicates that the majority of people support the policy. Introducing a tobacco-fee campus policy sends a clear message that these Primary Care settings are committed to protecting and promoting the health of their patients, staff and all who visit the centres.”The HSE Donegal Smoking Cessation Service is supporting this initiative by offering free support to anyone wishing to quit tobacco in any of the 12 clinics throughout Donegal.If you wish to avail of this service, you can contact Fiona Boyle on 087 – 2514790 or Catherine Coleman on 087 – 6913777 for details or to make an appointment.HSE staff who join the Donegal Smoking Cessation Service will also be supported with six weeks free Tobacco Dependence Treatments i.e. NRT patch, to support their quit attempt. The HSE has also developed a QUIT campaign to provide supports for people who want to quit smoking which is available on or National Smokers’ Quitline on 1850 201 203.NO ‘IFS’ OR ‘BUTTS’ – SMOKING STAMPED OUT IN DONEGAL HEALTH CENTRES was last modified: November 21st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalhealth centresNo SmokingPrimary Care Centreslast_img read more

Take me out to the (augmented) ball game

I also act as an informal adviser for the company.Since the first sporting events were broadcast on radio in 1921, technology has continually changed the way fans experience games. Now, a personal smartphone accessory may significantly enhance the viewing of live events in stadiums, athletic fields and even at the local park.Augmented reality becomes realityMost sports fans have no idea what augmented reality (AR) is – but they have been experiencing AR as they watch football and other live sports on TV for over a decade.  Similar to the “green screen” used on the weather channel, PVI’s (Princeton Video Image) introduced L-VIS (Live Video Insertion System) to display advertising on “virtual signage” during live sports broadcasts in 1995.Then, in 1998 both PVI and SportVision introduced virtual first down lines to pro football, with PVI’s “Yellow Down Line” and SportVision’s “1st and Ten” line.  Since then AR has come to baseball and hockey with SportVision’s “Virtual Strike Zone” and their “FoxTrax” puck tracker.  Obviously, AR has now become a standard feature in TV broadcasting of pro sports, including football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer and motorsports.Now imagine that baseball and other sports fans can see the game at the stadium with the same types of AR viewing.  Some of the features of live broadcast data have already been demonstrated to fans in the stands.  In September, Apple’s ARKit was promoted at a San Francisco Giants baseball game with the introduction of MLB’s At Bat App, allowing fans to gain up to the minute stats on players taking the field.The biggest problem with the MLB app technology was the device itself.  Fans had to point their iPads or iPhones at the field or at players.  The fans were basically watching a live baseball game through an Apple device they would hold inches from their faces.  In the bright outdoor lighting conditions of a live event, the viewing is terrible.Tech company Parle Innovation’s eyeQ, immersive smart binoculars can take AR to a new level with sports fans. The company wants to eliminate the separation created by a digital device when watching a sporting event through an iPad or smartphone.  No more fiddling with the phone to look up stats on or Wikipedia.  Fans can get stats, overlay graphics and more with this new smartphone enabled device that gets them into the game like never before.What is eyeQ?The eyeQ device takes the idea of fans gaining up to the minute information by offering an immersive augmented reality binocular, eyeQ provides sports fans with the chance to see baseball and other events thru HD lenses that enhance the display on the smartphone’s screen. One day, eyeQ immersive binoculars could be seen in sports stadiums around the globe as this cutting-edge technology creates a unique viewing experience.eyeQ isn’t just for live professional sports, however. What makes the new tech device great, is anyone can use it for any sports activity or live event. Whether a proud dad wants to use eyeQ to stream his child’s soccer match to grandparents on the other side of the globe or a mom wants to record special moments of her family vacation, eyeQ offers a number of amazing features and possibilities for AR never experienced before on smartphone apps.How does it work?eyeQ is designed to be simple and users of the immersive smart binoculars can be using them in no time. Users simply download an app, sync with the eyeQ and place their smartphone into the universal mount and hold the binoculars up to the eyes for viewing.Once the user is looking thru the eyeQ  device, they can capture videos, images and stream live video to devices elsewhere with a tap of a fingertip. The idea of streaming video will completely change the way people view live sporting events. Whether professional baseball games or amateur soccer, eyeQ users can stream what they are viewing in real time to other individuals. In the future, sports teams of all levels could use the eyeQ to further engage fans. Go into the huddle or step into the box against a big league pitcher. The future of immersive augmented reality is limitless.Using the eyeQUsing the eyeQ is easy and far less complicated than one might expect. The binocular’s integrated touchpad enables users to control their smartphone’s camera functions and more. There is no need to constantly remove the phone to change settings or toggle through apps. Once in the smartphone mount holder, the eyeQ instantly connects to the smartphone, wirelessly via Bluetooth. Fans and spectators can video record, snap photos and share while live streaming and seeing everything in stunning HD. The device’s eyeQ Live app for iPhones enables up to16x digital zoom capabilities and eyeQ can be used around water, since it is made to be water resistant.AR binoculars for sportsMajor League Baseball and other sports leagues around the globe are embracing augmented reality technology. “Smart” fans are all about knowing more about players and their favorite teams. Baseball is one sport that prides itself on stats, and with the time it takes to play a full nine inning game, fans can fill dead space with AR apps.However, eyeQ  enhances AR apps. It gives fans the immersive experience they want, but delivers more than what a simple downloadable AR app can, by enabling the zoom capabilities, enhancing the viewing, video and photo capturing and live sharing of exciting moments in the game.eyeQ is comingOn October 17, 2017, the eyeQ will be available for preorder on Kickstarter. Sports fans and others can preorder their own eyeQ device and see the world through immersive AR, rather than an iPad or device being held six inches or more from their face.   Mary Shulenberger [email protected].com  415 518-1231   @eyeQlive Related Posts center_img Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Clayton Jacobs Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

Spain beaten by Georgia in final Euro 2016 warmup

first_imgSpain’s preparations for Euro 2016 suffered a blow as they were beaten 1-0 by Georgia on Tuesday in their final warmup friendly ahead of the tournament in France.Tornike Okriashvili tapped in from close range in the 39th minute to secure a surprise victory for Georgia at Getafe’s Coliseum Alfonso Perez stadium.Spain, who have won the last two European Championships, had not lost since being beaten in a friendly by the Netherlands in March 2015 and came into their final warmup match after convincing wins against Bosnia and South Korea.The hosts, however, lacked a cutting edge against a well-organised Georgia side who defended deep after taking the lead.Spain coach Vicente del Bosque made eight changes to the side that beat South Korea 6-1 last week, with Real Madrid’s Lucas Vazquez making his senior debut, while Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea also started.The hosts dominated possession and nearly scored in the 27th minute when Vazquez found Thiago Alcantara in the area, but his right-footed shot rebounded off the far post.Georgia went ahead against the run of play when a defensive mistake from Jordi Alba allowed the visitors to steal the ball in midfield.Jambul Jighauri surged into the area before teeing up an unmarked Okriashvili in the six-yard box for an easy tap-in.Del Bosque brought on Andres Iniesta, Coke, Hector Bellerin and Mikel San Jose at halftime, but Georgia defended deeply and forced Spain into speculative long-range shots with Nolito’s 25-metre effort going just wide.A superb cross from substitute David Silva in the 69th minute found Alba in the six-yard box but his first-time shot lacked power and his attempt was saved by substitute goalkeeper Nukri Revishvili.advertisementThe home side continued to press forward but lacked the finishing touch against a well-marshalled Georgian rearguard.Spain travel to France on Wednesday and begin the defence of their title against the Czech Republic on June 13 in Toulouse. They also face Turkey and Croatia in Group D.last_img read more

Neymar announces lawsuit as row with Barcelona intensifies

first_imgNeymar’s acrimonious split from Barcelona escalated on Thursday as the Paris St Germain forward announced plans to sue the Liga club, two days after Barca revealed they were suing the Brazilian over breach of contract.Reports in the Spanish media said that Neymar had filed a lawsuit via soccer’s world governing body against Barca for an unpaid loyalty bonus of 26 million euros ($30.69 million), which was included in the last contract the player signed with the Catalan side in November 2016.FIFA confirmed to Reuters that they had “received a claim from Neymar against FC Barcelona” and said the matter was being investigated.PSG smashed the world transfer record earlier this month by triggering the 222 million euro buyout clause in the contract.On Tuesday, Barcelona said they were suing Neymar for 8.5 million euros as they want him to return the bonus he was paid when he signed the five-year deal.The bonus Barca referred to is separate to the 26 million euro payment, according to reports in Spain.Neymar’s management group N & N Consultoria responded in a statement on Tuesday that the player had fulfilled the terms of the contract, as well as stating it was planning legal action.The player’s lawsuit against Barca is the latest chapter of an increasingly bitter split between Neymar and the club which catapulted him to world fame by signing him from Santos in 2013 and with whom he won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys and the 2015 Champions League.The Brazilian launched a tirade against Barcelona’s board and president Josep Maria Bartomeu after starring on his home debut for PSG last Sunday in a 6-2 win over Toulouse.advertisementHe said: “I am disappointed with them (Barcelona directors). I spent four very happy years there and left happy, but not with them. For me they shouldn’t be in charge of Barcelona. Barca deserve much better and everyone knows this.”last_img read more

Corrupt Tennis Umpires Banned

first_imgLONDON, ENGLAND — Two tennis umpires have been banned and four others are under investigation for corruption, authorities said Tuesday.The sanctions were confirmed by the International Tennis Federation in response to a story published online by The Guardian.Kirill Parfenov of Kazakhstan was banned for life in February 2015 for using Facebook to contact another official in an “attempt to manipulate the scoring of matches,” the ITF said in a statement.Denis Pitner of Croatia was suspended for a year in August after passing on details on the “physical well-being of a player to a coach during a tournament and regularly logging on to a betting account from which bets were placed on tennis matches,” the ITF said.Four other unidentified officials were suspended while investigations continue into their conduct.“In order to ensure no prejudice of any future hearing we cannot publicly disclose the nature or detail of those investigations,” the ITF said. “Should any official be found guilty of an offense, it will be announced publicly.”The ITF code was changed in December to allow the public reporting of sanctions for officials, but the governing body could not explain why it only announced details following media questions. The ITF also declined to explain why it would not provide details on matches involved in the case.The Guardian said the offenses took place on the Futures Tour, the lowest rung of professional tennis. It said umpires allegedly took bribes from betting syndicates in exchange for manipulating live scores, allowing gamblers to place bets already knowing the outcome of the next point.The story follows BBC and BuzzFeed allegations about match-fixing at the top level of the sport that overshadowed the start of the Australian Open last month.

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA — Independent MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes says qualified black Canadians are being passed over for promotions to senior positions in the federal government due what she says are systemic racial barriers.Caesar-Chavannes, who is not running for re-election in October, used her final act in the House of Commons last week to shine a light on what she says is discrimination in the civil service.She says in all of Canada’s history, no black person has been appointed as a federal deputy minister, the bureaucratic head of a department.Caesar-Chavannes says there has also been a “thinning out” of visible minorities at the assistant-deputy-minister level.She has heard from current and former civil servants who say they have the qualifications to be promoted to managerial positions, but report being passed over for more senior jobs in favour of candidates they say were sometimes less qualified.Though it stands almost no chance of becoming law now, Caesar-Chavannes tabled a private member’s bill that would require the Canadian Human Rights Commission to annually report on the progress — or lack thereof — of government’s efforts to promote black Canadians and other visible minorities to more senior positions within the federal ranks.last_img read more

Thousands more Timorese become displaced but security improves in capital UN

1 March 2007More than 5,000 additional Timorese have fled to internally displaced persons (IDPs) camps over the past month or so because of the recent violence in the capital Dili, although this is now under control as more United Nations police are patrolling the streets, top UN officials said today. The Special Representative of the Secretary-General Atul Khare, head of the UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), said the security situation in Dili over the past week has “remained stable,” adding there are now more officers in high-risk areas as well as dedicated mobile units watching out for gang-related violence.The head of UN humanitarian assistance in Timor-Leste, and the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Finn Reske-Nielsen, said most of the 5,000 or so people who fled to the IDP camps arrived last week because of the disturbances, adding that four new camps had been set up. “We have…an estimate as of early January that there were approximately somewhere between 25,000-29,000 people in the camps in Dili. And as I mentioned over the past month, we have seen an increase of more than 5,000 and that would be the figure,” he told reporters in the capital.Reiterating that rice shortages were a contributing factor to last week’s violence, Mr. Reske-Nielsen said the Government, supported by the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), were continuing the sale of rice that was begun last Friday. Last month, the Security Council extended UNMIT’s mandate for another year until February 2008, while adding up to 140 extra police officers to help counter the increasing violence as the tiny nation gears up for this year’s elections.The Council created UNMIT in August 2006 to help restore order after deadly fighting, attributed to differences between eastern and western regions, broke out in April and May and caused the deaths of at least 37 people and forced about 155,000 others – or 15 per cent of the population – to flee their homes. read more

Food crisis in southern Africa may deepen next month WFP warns

A “vicious” dry spell on top of a poor harvest mean the already-high numbers of people in southern Africa dependent on food aid may rise again in April and May, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today. The agency said that $69 million was needed urgently to feed some 2.6 million people currently facing malnutrition. Describing donor response to its repeated pleas for food and funds as “sluggish,” WFP said that more than 145,000 tons of food were required immediately to ensure people in five countries – Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe – already facing hunger are fed. WFP said it was is concerned that the poor response to current emergency needs does not auger well for the worsening situation its experts anticipate may arise next month. “If we can’t get enough food to feed 2.6 million people right now, what will happen when potentially millions more need our help in months ahead?” said WFP’s Regional Director for east and southern Africa, Judith Lewis. “Much more must be swiftly done to stave off the spread of hunger and malnutrition.” Initial estimates of the April/May harvest show that the dry spell and low maize production will mean withered crops throughout the region, according to WFP. If the estimates prove accurate, these poor yields coming on the heels of a similarly poor harvest in 2000/2001, will have a “devastating” impact. WFP and it partners are gearing up for a major response, and assessment missions are reviewing needs in six southern African countries — those currently in crisis plus Swaziland. “The situation for people all over southern Africa is very bleak,” Ms. Lewis said. “Now is the time to act to prevent what is a crisis from developing into a major disaster.” read more

UN rights chief alarmed by sentencing of 152 soldiers to death in

“The crimes committed during the mutiny were utterly reprehensible and heinous, and my sympathies are with the grieving families, but justice will not be achieved by conducting mass trials of hundreds of individuals, torturing suspects in custody and sentencing them to death after trials that failed to meet the most fundamental standards of due process,” said High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.Ms. Pillay urged the Government not to proceed with the death penalty, particularly given concerns about the fairness of the trials.“The perpetrators of the crimes must be held accountable in compliance with the laws of Bangladesh and the country’s international obligations, including those pertaining to fair trial standards, as laid down in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Bangladesh ratified in 2000,” she said. “The trial of these 847 suspects has been rife with procedural irregularities, including the lack of adequate and timely access to lawyers.”The officers of the Bangladesh Border Guards were convicted of crimes such as murder and sexual assault during a February 2009 mutiny in Dhaka, when 74 people, including army officers, were brutally killed. Bodies were dumped in ditches and some wives of army officers were sexually assaulted.Yesterday, a special court in Bangladesh set up to prosecute the crimes sentenced 152 people to death and 161 people to life imprisonment. However, reports indicate that a number of suspects detained for their alleged role in the mutiny died in custody. In addition, there are allegations of widespread abuse and torture of the detainees and evidence obtained under torture was reportedly admitted in court during group trials of hundreds of defendants.Ms. Pillay called for an independent and thorough investigation into the allegations of human rights abuses, particularly custodial torture and deaths that took place after the mutiny. “The results of the investigation should be made public and those responsible must be held accountable,” she said, noting that, having ratified the UN Convention against Torture, Bangladesh is obliged to take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under its jurisdiction.“The conviction and sentencing of each of the suspects must be reviewed individually, and any evidence obtained under torture must not be admitted in court.”Ms. Pillay also expressed concern about the conduct of the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) established in 2010 by the Bangladeshi Government to try citizens accused of committing atrocities during the country’s 1971 independence war.“The ICT should be a very important means to tackle impunity for the mass atrocities committed in 1971, and to provide redress to the victims who have had a long and difficult road to justice,” she said. “But it is important that the proceedings meet the highest standards if they are to reinforce the rule of law in Bangladesh and the fight against impunity in the broader region.”The Tribunal has so far sentenced 10 individuals, seven of whom have received death sentences.The UN opposes the imposition of the death penalty under any circumstance, even for the most serious international crimes. The International Criminal Court – of which Bangladesh is a State party – and other international criminal tribunals all exclude the death penalty for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. read more

Sandvik sees strong upturn in mining equipment investment

first_imgLars Josefsson, President of Sandvik Mining and Construction (SMC) business area: “We are pleased to note that, following the increase in demand for mobile mining equipment demand earlier this year, we are now also seeing arise in demand for major capital investments in mines and related infrastructures. During October and November, SMC secured a number of orders for bulk materials handling and continuous mining/crushing systems in South America, Africa and Asia. The recently signed orders include:Turn-key supply of a materials handling system for a coal export terminalA repeat order for supply of several iron ore handling machines for an iron ore mineThe design and supply of a high-capacity (9,100 t/h) long-distance conveying system for an iron ore mineThe design and delivery of a complete coal storage (stacking and reclaiming) and handling/loading system for a portEngineering and supply of a high capacity iron ore conveying system for a port.The total value of these orders is some SEK2,200 million and delivery has commenced with completion scheduled to take place between late 2011 and mid 2013.“These orders confirm Sandvik’s strong position in iron ore and coal mining, preparation and bulk materials handling. We anticipate a continued high level of demand for these commodities and the orders prove our ability to provide technically superior and energy efficient continuous mining solutions. This success is based on Sandvik’s vast experience and its close cooperation with customers in development and delivery of complete mining and bulk handling systems,” said Josefsson.last_img read more

Economists sound alarm

first_imgAs the country’s political parties ramp up their campaigns ahead of crucial general elections on June 17, a group of 11 eminent Greek economists from across the world have emphasized the importance of the next Greek government honoring its commitments to foreign creditors and pushing through vital reforms if it is to secure its position in the eurozone.Meanwhile, European leaders continued to express their hopes that Greek authorities will do what it takes to remain in the eurozone. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn repeated Monday that Brussels wants Greece to remain in the eurozone. Van Rompuy said Athens could only achieve this “while respecting its commitments,” a reference to a 130-billion-euro loan deal signed with its creditors.Rehn, for his part, noted that “abiding by commitments remains the best option available to Greece,” adding “we want Greece in the euro and we are working toward that goal.”French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici, who met with Rehn Monday, was more explicit: “If the Greeks themselves do not respect their commitment, then we would find ourselves in a situation which would be infinitely more complicated,” he said.The risks of such a prospect are the focus of an open letter by 11 eminent Greek economists published in Sunday’s Kathimerini. In the letter, the economists, who include George-Marios Angeletos of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dimitris Vayanos of the London School of Economics, stress that the prospect of a Greek eurozone exit is still very real, despite reassurances by EU officials.“The international community is monitoring our country with great concern and believes it very likely that it will default in a disorderly fashion and leave the eurozone,” the letter notes. The only hope, the writers claim, is that elections “lead to a government that will be supported by a broad range of political parties.” Such an administration must focus on confirming the country’s will to remain in the eurozone, implementing crucial structural reforms and cooperating with foreign creditors to revise aspects of the debt deal and boost investment and growth.In a clear dig at politicians’ campaign tactics, the writers note “we would not like to see ignorance and populism lead the country to disastrous and irreversible choices.” Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Going above beyond

first_imgRemember the song Sun and Moon? The lyrics went a bit like, “…I’m sorry baby you were the sun and moon to me, I’ll never get over you, you’ll never get over me…” – yes. Those guys. That’s exactly how I heard some friends discuss Above & Beyond. Let’s get a little in deep: these guys have released three studio albums, two remix albums, one side-project album. Their own two labels – Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, and are among the most respected imprints in the global dance music scene and have released some 23 Above & Beyond albums and compilations in the last 12 years. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’There have been dozens (and dozens) of singles and mix albums and offshoot projects, all snapped up by a devoted worldwide fan base that has happily, passionately followed this London-based electronic trio since their formation in 2000. Phew. We spoke to Tony McGuinness about their next album and much more. Read on…How did Above and Beyond come together? What started it all?We came together to do a remix for Warner Brothers – Chakra Home. We were all doing other things at the time but the remix was very successful and pretty soon Above & Beyond became the main thing for all three of us. The name came from a guy in the States called Jono Grant who was a motivational trainer – “Above & Beyond” was his tag line. Our own Jono had found his web site and printed the front page out and stuck it on his bedroom wall. When we’d finished the mix we needed a name and it just jumped out at us. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix How easy (or difficult) was it for Above and Beyond to make a mark in the music scene?It’s hard to know what things we’ve done have had the biggest impact since we’ve never stopped making music and touring, but we’ve had some amazing opportunities and, thus far at least, have risen to the challenge of doing something great when we’ve had the chance. Our first remix was of a club classic that, even though we were unknown, became the lead remix on the package and went to number one in the club chart. Our remix for Madonna was on spec, but she loved it so much she made the video to our mix instead of the Radio edit. We got the chance to do an Essential Mix for Radio 1 in 2004 and the mix won Essential Mix of the year. And our first album, Tri-State, got great reviews across the board. So we’ve had some great bits of luck to get some great breaks but we’ve made sure we do a great job when we do. In addition, what we do, which is act like a band and write songs about our real life, sets us apart from almost all our peers, who usually draft in external singer/songwriters. That doesn’t really result in any consistency or connection.Who and what influences you and your music? Who are your favourite musicians?We each have quite different tastes in music outside of what we make together and sign to the label, which keeps our music very diverse and, hopefully, rich in context. Personally I love singer songwriters like Damien Rice, unique singers like Goldfrapp, FKA Twigs and Kate Bush, bands like Kings of Convenience, Blonde Redhead, Royksopp and War on Drugs and electronic producers from Joris Voorn to Seven Lions. Paavo is especially keen on soundtracks, Jono loves a lot of 80s pop like the Pet Shop Boys.Tell us about your favourite tracks? If you could pick one track from your repertoire to go down in history (over the others) which one would that be?Hmm, it always used to be Tranquility Base Razorfish, but I’d probably pick Thing Called Love or Sun & Moon as they seem to have a life of their own, even now. But the new album is just out and there are lots of great tracks on there just bedding in, so let’s see how it feels a year from now. How has Above and Beyond witnessed the change in the music scene from the time you started to now?We started just as trance music was losing its pop credibility and moving underground, so we’ve always eschewed pop music, per se. But recently a lot of pop EDM has created an explosion in public interest in the scene and whilst we haven’t been deflected by that and remain outside it in many ways, it has provided a lot of oxygen to the scene and we’ve certainly benefitted from that. If you could change one thing about the music industry right now – what would that be?The idea that musicians should not get paid fairly for the work they do is ridiculous and the slow but severe eroding in revenues for recorded music is hurting everyone without the means to support themselves in other ways, like DJing. That sucks.If you could change one thing about the world with your music – what would that be?The internet promised a more connected world and in the music business it delivers that emphatically. But politi cally it seems to be dividing us, extreme views which would have dwindled in a locally connected society gain weight in an interconnected world in a way nobody foresaw. Now anyone with a crazy way of seeing things can find people who share those views in another country, which in turn gives validity to the extreme views. The world is more and more divided by issues of ‘race’ and religion and bigotry is rife. As touring DJs we see things differently. We travel to countries that have supposedly different world views and find that people, on the whole, are all the same. We’ve done shows in the same weekend to countries who remain violently opposed and found the same reaction to our music, the same hopes and fears, dreams and aspirations in the people. It’s one planet, we’re one human race and the sooner we realise that the better things will get. What’s next for Above and Beyond?We’re touring the world in support of our new album We Are All We Need, including our biggest ever US tour – six weeks of high intensity touring to over 100,000 people. Then we have a sold out UK tour to look forward to in April. Tell us about the top five songs on your playlist right now. Our new single is called All Over The World and it’s about a broken father/son relationship, illustrated perfectly by the video which is based on Catch Me If You Can. The next single from the album will be Peace of Mind. There’s an extraordinary new single from Andrew Bayer and Asbjorn, a new Danish singer we’ve hooked him up with. It’s called Superhuman and it’s fabulous. Our recent remix Salva Mea is going off in our sets, we’re super proud of that one. All That Matters by Kolsch feat Troels Abramsen is a particular favourite, it’s a beautiful song and the production.last_img read more

Buddhist leader" Sangay did not say whether he thought such a meeting likely but said "We are Tibetans We are perennially optimistic" Sangay told Reuters earlier this month that the Dalai Lama had planned to visit the US in April but delayed the trip until June because a hectic schedule had left him exhausted He also said Washington was not part of the June itinerary A US administration

Related News THREE doctors including Bandra-based surrogacy specialist Dr Gautam Allahbadiya charged by the police with gross negligence while retrieving eggs that reportedly resulted in the death of teenage donor Sushma Pandey have failed to get their charges quashed by the Bombay High Court The HC framed several questions over the victim’s death and dismissed their petition Share This Article Related Article Pandey 17 died in 2010 allegedly due to complications arising from donating eggs at Dr Allahbadia’s Rotunda Fertility Clinic The police filed its supplementary chargesheet last year naming Dr Allahbadiya besides Dr Kaushak Kadam and Dr Gauri Sultane who had also conducted the surgery A social activist Noorjehan had signed consent papers as Pandey’s guardian at the clinic The petition filed in the HC by the doctors wished to “quash their implications” for offences of negligence and abduction registered by the Sakinaka police station However the court declined to do so There were aspects the HC asserted that required deeper consideration Whether deceased Sushma was minor or major who had visited the hospital run by the petitioners for donation of ovarian eggs” is one such aspect Justices N H Patil and A M Badar pointed out The counsel for the petitioners Raja Thakare earlier submitted that it was not for the first time the victim had been to the hospital for donating eggs On earlier two occasions he argued Pandey came “out of her free will” along with the guardian It was the petitioners’ contention that following all necessary formalities and signing of necessary papers required procedure was followed and the girl was discharged Thakare argued that even if there had been a complication it must have not been on the part of the doctors but due to some “extraneous reason” which occurred outside the hospital It was therefore submitted that petitioner could not be held responsible The police represented by assistant public prosecutor Mankunwar Deshmukh contested the claims arguing the investigating agency had thoroughly investigated the matter She submitted that the doctors had removed eggs without any legal sanction And this did not happen once but thrice she pointed out It was the police case that though consent was taken by getting signatures on a few forms of both Pandey and Noorjahan the petitioners’ claims cannot be vindicated in light of their responsibility and the legal liability when following such a procedure She submitted that even today there is no law governing or permitting donation of ovarian eggs The court frowned at whether consent of Noorjehan could be treated by the doctors as a valid consent and if at all she could act as legal guardian of the victim Even Pandey’s motive the court said to donate eggs has to be looked into “And if petitioners took abundant caution and care to conduct the procedure on deceased Sushma it would be a matter for consideration” “Certainly for any professional to stand for trial against such serious charges would be uncomfortable to face But considering the nature of allegations made and the evidence collected by the investigating agency in the facts and surrounding circumstances of the case we are not inclined to exercise our writ jurisdiction at the threshold for setting aside the entire proceedings” ruled the high court [email protected] For all the latest

Pakistan and the country’s involvement in terrorism Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on a lot of important issues during the G20 summit PTI Here are the key issues on which Modi spoke during the G20 summit: Pakistan and terrorism Perhaps the most important statement made by the prime minister was his sharp attack on Pakistan when he said on Monday "Indeed one single nation in South Asia is spreading these agents ofterror in countries of our region" Soon after Modi’s assertion the G20 countries including India also came down heavily on terrorism as they vowed to tackle all sources techniques and channels of terror financing "We expect the international community to speak and act in unity and to respond with urgency to fight this menace Those who sponsor and support terrorism must be isolated and sanctioned not rewarded" Modi further said in his intervention during the concluding session of the meeting of the world’s 20 strong economies Modi had earlier said that India appreciates the G20’s initiative on combating the financing of terrorism and asserted that all countries should meet the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards "Growing forces of violence and terror pose a fundamental challenge There are some nations that use it as an instrument of state policy India has a policy of zero tolerance to terrorism Because anything less than that is not enough" Modi said "For us a terrorist is a terrorist" he asserted Modi’s remarks at the G20 Summit came a day after India called on other Brics members to intensify joint efforts to combat terrorism The comments also assume significance amid a war of words between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the unrest in the Kashmir Valley that broke out on 8 July after Hizbul commander Burhan Wani was

bilateral ties Besides a host of energy-related projects the CPEC consists of rail road and pipelines to ferry oil and gas from Gwadar port on Arabian Sea to Kashghar in China’s Muslim-dominated Xinjiang province through PoK "As a matter of principle both countries would have to be sensitive to each other’s strategic interests" Vikas Swarup Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson said while

another proof of the continuing scourge of terrorism "The Prime Minister reiterated that our response to terror must not be motivated by political considerations" Swarup said About the bilateral relations — which experienced turbulence due to differences over a raft of issues involving Pakistan including China’s technical hold on UN ban against Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Masood Azhar and its attempts to block India’s entry into Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) — Modi said in order to make the Asian century a reality the countries of the continent would have to take responsibility Asked whether Modi raised the issue of China blocking India’s bid for the membership of the NSG during the bilateral Swarup declined to get into the "nitty-gritty" of the issues discussed "I am not going into the nitty-gritty of each and everything that was discussed Everything is not meant for public consumption There are certain things (which) need to remain between the two governments" he said On yet another question on the NSG issue he said: "I will not go into the specifics if you read between the lines you pretty much understand when we talk about strategic interests concerns and aspirations it is not as if China is not unaware of our strategic interests aspirations and concerns or we are unaware of their concerns So it is something both sides are well aware.This was a meeting at summit level between the two They are meant to provide high-level guidance and direction to overall relations" Citing that India has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty China had opposed its bid to join the elite 48-member bloc during NSG’s meeting in Seoul in June Modi said he always had a strategic vision for India-China ties The India-China partnership is

rule-based global trading architecture should underpin collective efforts" Modi urged G20 members to fully implement the Bali and Nairobi Ministerial decisions to facilitate trade The Nairobi Decision builds on the earlier 2013 Bali Ministerial Decision on preferential rules It includes Ministerial Decisions on agriculture covering a Special Safeguard Mechanism for developing countries (to counter import surges of farm items) "Global trading regime must respond to needs and priorities of developing nations" Modi said He closed his second intervention of the day saying global investment

second and final day of the summit Modi held a separate "pull-aside" meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan with whom he discussed India’s NSG membership The discussion with Erdogan on

a time not too long ago (Source: Express file) Related News With the BJP projecting retired IPS officer Kiran Bedi as its chief ministerial candidate the Delhi Assembly election has become a direct contest between Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal the chief of the Aam Aadmi Party The election scheduled for February 7 has already started seeing hectic and fiery campaigning by all three parties including the Congress even though it has lost much of its electoral space since its rout in 2013 Here we take a look at five factors that seem to be working for Kejriwal and Bedi in this election For AAP and Kejriwal: 1 Dissent in state BJP – It is no secret that the nomination of Bedi has caused severe heartburn in the ranks of the Delhi unit of BJP This dissent and strife could work to the advantage of Kejriwal who remains the undisputed leader of the Aam Aadmi Party 2 Support of Dalits slum dwellers and autorickshaw drivers – Dalits are believed to comprise around 20% of the Delhi electorate thus forming a major chunk of votes for any party In the 2013 elections AAP captured 9 out of the 12 reserved seats proving its popularity among the community Even this time the party would seek to nurse the aspirations of the Dalit community along with the support of autorickshaw drivers and slum dwellers to rise to power once again 3 A clinical head-start – Kejriwal’s AAP was the first party to release its list of candidates thus giving the workers more time to establish rapport with citizens As they say an early bird catches the worm and AAP would like to believe that the head-start they got would work in their favour 4 Door-to-door campaigning – The AAP’s personalised style of door-to-door campaigning was credited as a major reason for the party’s success in the 2013 elections Early on in this election workers wearing white Gandhi topis were seen combing through the city’s uanuthorized colonies spreading the party word This campaigning style many say could repeat success and glory for the party 5 Clean image and strong anti corruption credentials – Last but not the least Kejriwal’s personal credentials as a clean leader and as a fiery anti-corruption crusader remains intact in the minds of voters He may have relinquished power last year but voters have often showered effusive praise for his scorn for corruption For BJP and Kiran Bedi: 1 Popularity of PM Narendra Modi: Working to the advantage of Bedi is the charisma and leadership quality of Prime Minister Narendra Modi which propelled the BJP to power in the states of Maharashtra Haryana and Jharkhand last year Bedi will hope that the Modi magic will work in Delhi as well 2 Support of middle class voters – One of the major reasons for the BJP’s sweep across all 7 parliamentary seats in Delhi in 2014 was the solid support of middle-class voters who punched their ballots for BJP’s good governance agenda The largely affirmative 7 months of the Narendra Modi government has kept Delhi’s middle class voters rooted to the BJP 3 Bedi’s stand on women security and experience as tough cop: Bedi’s no-nonsense image as a tough cop and her strong stand on women’s security keeps her in good stead as a leader of the BJP It is this image that the party would like to harvest and highlight in its election campaign 4 Erosion of leaders from other parties – The induction of leaders like Shazia Ilmi Krishna Tirath MS Dhir and Vinod Kumar Binny will prove to be fruitful for the BJP and Bedi as they each bring their own support base and experience into the party 5 Bedi’s understanding of government machinery – Bedi’s knowledge of government machinery and her long stint with the police administration is likely to be an advantage in case the BJP comes to power She has already spelt out her stand on key issues like education police reform and women security It is this stand which makes a marked change from Kejriwal’s often ‘anarchist’ ideas For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express
