BGC defends RG progress after call for sponsorship ban

first_img The UK’s gambling industry has defended its commitment to responsible gambling after campaigners claimed in a letter to the Prime Minister that football’s relationship with betting is at “saturation point”.Michael Dugher, chief executive of the new standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC), highlighted steps taken voluntarily by the industry after campaign groups Gambling with Lives and The Big Step called for a ban on gambling sponsorships in football and TV advertising.These formed part of a series of demands delivered to 10 Downing Street on Wednesday (26 February).The letter was handed over on Gambling with Lives’ ‘day of action’ after members from The Big Step completed a 100-mile walk to six different clubs with betting sponsors on their shirts.As well as calling for an end to “predatory marketing”, including football sponsorship, the campaigners said they want the Government to introduce safety testing and classification of addictive industrialised gambling products and health warnings that gambling causes mental health problems that can lead to suicide.Gambling with Lives wants a ban on gambling logos on any kit, an end to in-stadium advertising, and no sponsorship of any football league by operators.In response, the BGC’s Dugher said the industry takes its responsibility to protect young people and those at risk of harm incredibly seriously.“As part of our safer gambling commitments, our members have already introduced a ‘whistle to whistle’ ban on advertising during sport; substantially increased funding for research, education and treatment; implemented new ID and age-verification checks; ended any suggestion of exclusive rights to screen FA Cup games and will ban betting with credit cards,” he explained.“We are determined to drive big changes across the betting and gaming industry. Millions of people regularly enjoy a flutter and do so safely and we will ensure that our standards are the highest in the world.”However Gambling with Lives pointed out that new ID and age checks were required by the operator, as was the credit card betting ban. Increased funding for research, education and treatment, it said was “perpetuating a failed funding system”. This left the whiste-to-whistle ban, which it said was “a smart move for the big companies anyway”.Gambling with Lives, which was set up by parents whose children have taken their own lives after developing a gambling addiction, said a recent survey by the Football Supporters’ Association found that only 13% of fans would be happy for their club to be sponsored by a gambling company. They note that as many as 27 of the 44 clubs in England’s top two divisions feature a betting operator on their shirts.The charity was this week represented at the House of Lords Select Committee into the Social and Economic Impacts of Gambling. After delivering the letter to Downing Street, members also attended a reception in Parliament which was addressed by Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.Founder Liz Ritchie, whose 24-year-old son Jack committed suicide in 2017, said: “Where are the warnings? A six-year-old knows that smoking kills, they should also know that gambling kills. The Gambling Commission says that warning the public of the danger of addiction and death from toxic gambling products is not their job – it’s the job of charities.“But charities funded by the gambling companies say that they don’t warn people because they don’t campaign. So families need to help each other – research shows that up to 650 people every year die in the UK because of gambling.“People think it’s the stress of financial debt that kills you – it’s not – gambling affects your mental health and can lead to suicide.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter BGC defends RG progress after call for sponsorship ban 27th February 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal & compliance The UK’s gambling industry has defended its commitment to responsible gambling after campaigners claimed in a letter to the Prime Minister that football’s relationship with betting is at “saturation point”.

Lloyds Bank share price is at its lowest in 4 months. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Manika Premsingh | Monday, 24th February, 2020 | More on: LLOY I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 banking giant Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) isn’t in a good place. Its share price dropped to a four-month low of 55.3p at the last close. What’s worse, it’s also down by 13% from the start of 2020. Broader stock-market plungeAs an investor, should I now be worried about Lloyds’s share price fall? I’d take some comfort by considering the larger context. The bank’s part of the FTSE 100, which too has declined from the start of the year, though by a far smaller 2.6%. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rising global uncertainty, led by fears of the coronavirus, has impacted the overall stock markets. It’s to be expected that a cyclical stock like LLOY sees a sharper dip. The fall wouldn’t be particularly worrisome if the uncertainty had been contained. Unfortunately, it hasn’t, as the virus’s impact is getting bigger as it spreads outside China. Tied to the economy Added to this is the fact that the UK economy isn’t entirely out of the woods either. In the last quarter of 2019, UK’s growth showed no change from the quarter before. Forward-looking indicators do suggest recovery, but I’d wait for confirmation from official numbers. This will inform me of both whether the recovery is taking place and if it is, the extent to which it’s occurring.  If the recovery is weak, it may mean nothing for LLOY. If it is robust, however, banking of all the sectors could be in for good times given how tightly it’s linked to economic conditions. But we don’t know that for certain right now. In fact, further spread of COVID-19 could put a dent to UK’s recovery, at least in the short term. Over the longer term as well, it’s a wait and watch situation. The economic outcome will also be influenced significantly by Brexit negotiations with the EU.  Investing for high passive income With so many question marks about the future, I’d be particularly cautious of investing in LLOY for capital gains. The share doesn’t have a good track-record of recovery for the patient investor.  Even if I consider its performance over a shorter time frame, it has been disappointing. Over the past five years, on average, the LLOY share price has risen by just a little over 2%. Many other FTSE 100 stocks have shown much better performance over the same period. I do like its 6.1% dividend yield, however. It’s significantly above the FTSE 100 average yield and there’s reason to believe that dividend income will continue to be rewarding for investors. LLOY increased the payout in 2019 by 5% to 3.37p from the year before. In its latest financial results, it says that it will “continue to target a progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend”.For the foreseeable future, I’d consider LLOY as an income investment. I’d only look at it as a growth investment if was really optimistic. At the very least, I’d like to see more concrete evidence that the share price is on an upswing before investing for capital appreciation. Image source: Getty Images.

A residence built on a two-tiered site with a level difference of 3 meters. Because of the concern remained about the credibility of embankment and retaining wall built along the housing development, the foundation was laid on natural ground beneath the lower tier which was more reliable as the supporting stratum. The steel-made volume for public rooms floats over the retaining wall and above the upper tier for better view. Private rooms are arranged along the lower tier where the atmosphere is calm, at a distance from the front road, within a reinforced concrete structure which functions as a counterbalance to the overhanging volume.

That is, instead of choosing a hierarchic structure of framework resistance system, a series of seamless structures of in-plane stress resistance system using steel sheets 12 mm thick made into panels with reinforcing ribs was set up to constitute a vessel-like steel shell structure. Although the first floor on the upper tier accommodates the entrance hall and one spare room, it mainly consists of voids –a sequence of external spaces that continue from the pilotis through the porch to the roof deck.

Unfair Lobbying and Trials against Journalists in Azerbaijan

first_img April 9, 2021 Find out more March 22, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Unfair Lobbying and Trials against Journalists in Azerbaijan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News Related documents 130318_aserbaidschan-lobbying_eng_bitlys.pdfPDF – 62.62 KB Downoad in PDFReporters Without Borders is appalled at the harsh action the Azerbaijani regime is taking against its critics in the run-up to the presidential election this autumn, and distances itself from dubious attempts to create an anti-European mood in the country and thus weaken the opposition. One example of this is a supposed “study” currently in circulation on the decline of values in Europe, which claims the support of human rights organisations like Reporters Without Borders.”We were in no way involved in this study – contrary to what it claims – and consider it absolutely disproportionate to compare human rights abuses in Germany with those in Azerbaijan,” Christian Mihr, Executive Director of the German section of Reporters without Borders, stressed in Berlin.The author of the “study” is Eynulla Fatullayev (Эйнулла Фатуллаев), a journalist who gained international recognition as a critic of the regime. As the editor of two opposition newspapers he spent more than four years in prison before President Ilham Aliyev granted him a pardon in May 2011. Since his release Fatullajev has published reports that are conspicuously pro-governmental in their stance, among other things about the situation of political prisoners in Azerbaijani prisons. Fatullayev presented his “study”, from which Reporters Without Borders, Amnesty International and many other quoted persons have since distanced themselves, in Brussels in January 2013. A few days later the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe rejected a resolution calling for the release of political prisoners in Azerbaijan by a large majority and instead merely passed a general declaration on the state of human rights in the country. The German Rapporteur Christoph Strässer attributed this to massive lobbying on the Azerbaijani side. The European Stability Initiative had already described this type of lobbying in detail in a report titled “Caviar Diplomacy” published in May 2012. “We note with consternation that even former critics of the regime are now being roped in for this,” Reporters Without Borders’ director Mihr commented.Seven months before the presidential elections take place in October, critical journalists and media are being subjected to enormous pressure in Azerbaijan. On March 12, a court in Baku sentenced Avaz Zeynalli, the chief editor of Khural newspaper, to nine years in prison. He had repeatedly voiced harsh criticism of President Ilham Aliyev in his texts. Further criminal proceedings are underway against Hilal Mammedov, chief editor of the minority newspaper Tolishi Sado and other journalists. The most important opposition newspaper in the country, Azadliq, is on the brink of bankruptcy owing to hefty fines imposed as a result of defamation cases. In mid-February, Baku courts upheld fines amounting to approximately 62,000 euros against the newspaper.At least nine journalists were arrested on January 26 for taking part in non-authorised street protests in Baku, including Khadija Ismayilova, a reporter who has attracted international attention for her research into abuses of power and corruption, and blogger Emin Milli. Ismayilova was ordered to pay a fine of just under 400 euros in summary proceedings without any assistance from her lawyers, while Emin Milli was sentenced to 15 days of administrative detention.The penalties for participating in unauthorised gatherings had already been substantially increased prior to the protests. On March 11 President Aliyev signed further changes to the law, limiting the freedom of assembly and making the work of civil society organisations more difficult. NGOs now need official approval for every donation of more than 200 manat (approx. 200 euros).Reporters Without Borders sees Azerbaijan’s president Ilham Aliyev as one of the worst predators of press freedom worldwide. The southern Caucasian country ranks 156th out of 179 states in Reporters Without Borders’ current Press Freedom Index.

Cyclo Therapeutics Presents Positive Data from Clinical Development Program for Lead Candidate, Trappsol® Cyclo™,…

(Nasdaq: CYTH) (“Cyclo Therapeutics” or the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing cyclodextrin-based products for the treatment of Niemann-Pick Disease Type C and Alzheimer’s disease, today announced the presentation of favorable data from its clinical and drug development program for its lead candidate, Trappsol ® Cyclo™. These data are being presented at the 17 th Annual WORLD Symposium 2021, a leading medical and scientific conference for professionals working to advance understanding and treatments for lysosomal storage diseases, including Niemann-Pick Disease Type C (“NPC”), being held virtually February 8–12, 2021. “These data continue to bolster our confidence in the potential of Trappsol ® Cyclo™ to treat systemic and neurologic manifestations of NPC. With the continued safety and efficacy signals seen to-date, we remain committed to advancing this program swiftly in order to address the significant unmet need and importantly, provide hope for patients and their families. We are immensely grateful to the patients, families and treating physicians who have and continue to participate in these studies,” said Sharon Hrynkow, PhD, the Company’s Chief Scientific Officer and Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs. “We look forward to topline data readout from our Phase 1/2 study this quarter and commencing enrollment in our pivotal Phase 3 study.” Trappsol ® Cyclo™, Cyclo Therapeutics’ proprietary formulation of hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrin, used intravenously (IV), is currently in development for the treatment of NPC1, a rare genetic disorder causing cholesterol accumulation in lysosomes of cells, organ dysfunction and premature death. Functioning like the NPC1 protein, Trappsol ® Cyclo™ has been shown to transport cholesterol out of cells, normalizing cholesterol metabolism. Following review of the Phase 1 and Phase 1/2 data, coupled with preclinical compassionate use data, regulatory authorities acknowledged that IV hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrin has the potential to treat systemic and neurologic manifestations of NPC, and has the capacity when given intravenously to be a preventative treatment. The Company has confirmation that the pivotal Phase 3 study may begin enrollment. Ongoing Phase 1/2 Safety and Efficacy Results The Phase 1/2 trial of Trappsol ® Cyclo ™, evaluates 3 dose groups (1500, 2000, 2500 mg/kg) administered intravenously (IV) in NPC patients aged 2-plus bi-weekly over 48 weeks. Enrollment of 12 patients was completed in February 2020. Last patient last visit for the study is expected in February 2021. An interim unblinded analysis occurred in May 2020. To-date, individual and cumulative safety data show the drug to be well tolerated with a favorable safety profile for all dose groups. Previously reported data show effects of IV drug administration on markers of cholesterol synthesis and metabolism. Pharmacokinetic data show the drug in cerebrospinal fluid during and even after the end of IV infusion, at all dose levels. Lysosphingomyelin-509 in plasma demonstrates a clear downward trend over the 48-week study, with no apparent dose-relationship, further supporting the drug’s ability to clear lipids from lysosomes. Tau, a biomarker of neurodegeneration, is reduced in cerebrospinal fluid of patients who opted for lumbar punctures at 24 and 48 weeks, suggesting a neuroprotective effect of the drug. For the 7 patients who completed the trial as of September 2020, 6 (86%) met the first efficacy criterion of the study related to improvement in 2 domains of the 17-domain Severity Scale. For the second efficacy outcome measure, change from baseline in global impression of disease, 5 of 7 patients improved per the Clinicians Global Impression of Improvement scale and 2 were stabilized. Julian Raiman, MD, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital, United Kingdom and Principal Investigator for the Phase 1/2 study added, “There remains a significant unmet need for NPC patients, families and treating physicians. We continue to be encouraged by the trend toward improvement we have seen in the study thus far with intravenous hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrin and look forward to the completion and topline data readout in the coming weeks.” Completed Phase 1 Study Results and the Effects of Dosing Upon Biomarkers of NPC Disease The Phase 1 study of Trappsol ® Cyclo ™ in NPC1 patients was randomized, double-blinded, with no control group ( NCT02939547 ). Patients 18 years-plus received either 1500 or 2500 mg/kg of drug intravenously (IV) over 8-9 hours bi-weekly for 7 doses. Individual and cumulative safety data show both dose levels to have a favorable safety profile, although the 2500 mg/kg group included 3 serious adverse events related to transient hearing loss. Pharmacokinetic findings show Tmax of 6-8 hours with T ½ of 2 hours. The drug is detectable in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at 4 hours after start of infusion and persists up to 4 hours post-infusion. IV treatment impacts cholesterol homeostasis as evidenced by transient increases in total cholesterol levels; serum markers of cholesterol synthesis and metabolism; and liver biopsy data showing significant cholesterol clearance for both doses. Lysosphingomyelin-509 decreases significantly in most patients with successive infusions. Plasma biomarkers of inflammation, including lysozyme, show a general decrease. Effects within the CNS are shown by the CSF biomarker tau which is reduced in 6 of 10 patients as compared to baseline, suggesting a neuroprotective effect, and a serum increase of a CNS-derived metabolite of cholesterol, 24S-hydroxycholesterol. Three patients improved in Swallow and 1 worsened in Cognition as measured by the 17-domain NPC Severity Scale. After individual doses and at trial end some patients reported feeling more focused, more engaged in social interactions; more likely to initiate conversations or activities; word finding ability reaching back into the past; improvements in ability to swallow without coughing; and improvements in stance and gait. All 8 eligible patients (U.S. residents) enrolled in the Extension Protocol, receiving infusions in the home setting. Initial efficacy evaluation in September 2020 showed disease stabilization with notable clinical improvements in some patients. These findings confirm target engagement with a positive impact on cholesterol metabolism and liver cholesterol clearance in patients with NPC1 supporting continued evaluation of Trappsol ® Cyclo™ as a therapeutic for NPC1. The oral poster presentations are now available on the Company’s website in the Presentations section.

A Bench of Justices Pankaj Mithal and Saurabh Lavania has asked the Government to file a counter affidavit, within two weeks, so that it may proceed on merits. The bench has also asked the Government to furnish on record all the letters and documents, which the AGA said were sent to all the District Authorities for immediate and effective implementation of the aforesaid Scheme. The Petitioner, Rannsamar Foundation (a foundation under the Maharashtra Public Trust Act, 1950) through Advocate Abha Singh has approached the Lucknow Bench of the High Court, seeking effective implementation of the decision in Mahendra Chawla v. Union of India, (2019) 4 SCC 615, whereby the Supreme Court approved the Witness Protection Scheme, 2018, prepared by Union of India and directed all the states and union territories to enforce the same in letter and spirit. SC Approves Witness Protection Scheme, 2018; Directs Centre, States, UTs To Set Up Vulnerable Witness Deposition Complexes In Every District Within A Year A bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and S Abdul Nazeer had ordered that the scheme shall be ‘law’ under Article 141/142 of the Constitution till the enactment of suitable parliamentary and/or state legislations on the subject. It had also directed that vulnerable witness deposition complexes shall be set up by the states and union territories within a period of one year, i.e., by the end of the year 2019. In the present PIL, the Rannsamar Foundation submitted that the above directions/ guidelines are ‘seldom enforced’ and the same is evident from the manner in which witnesses in the Hathras killings and Unnao rape case were ‘intimidated and tortured’. It emphasized on the following key measures contemplated by the Top Court in order to avert witness intimidation and urged the Court to issue necessary directions to implement the same: Establishment of a Competent Authority to prepare a “Threat Analysis Report” concerning the life safety of witnesses;Creation of Witness Deposition Complexes in the District Courts;Creation of a Witness Protection Fund;Numerous other measures seeking protection of witnesses. The organization was represented by its President, Advocate Abha Singh. The matter is listed for hearing on December 20, 2020. Related News: Recently, the Madras High Court expressed displeasure over non-implementation of the Witness Protection Scheme, 2018. “Though the Witness Protection Scheme has been evolved in the year 2018, still the system is not providing confidence to the witnesses to come out with the truth as against the hard-core criminals”, observed the Bench. Though Witness Protection Scheme Evolved In 2018, System Not Instilling Confidence In Witnesses To Come Out With Truth Against Hard-Core Criminals: Madras HC The Court explained that as per the directions of the Apex Court, the Witness Protection Scheme, 2018 is evolved to give confidence to the witnesses to come forward to assist law enforcement and judicial authorities with full assurance of safety and aiming to identify series of measures that may be adopted to safeguard witnesses and their family members from intimidation and threats against their lives, reputation and property. The bench enumerated that Section 7 of the Scheme provides the following protection measures: Ensuring that witness and accused do not come face to face during investigation or trial;Monitoring of mail and telephone calls;Arrangement with the telephone company to change the witness’s telephone number or assign him or her an unlisted telephone number;Installation of security devices in the witness’s home such as security doors, CCTV, alarms, fencing etc;Concealment of identity of the witness by referring to him/her with the changed name or alphabet;Emergency contact persons for the witness;Close protection, regular patrolling around the witness’s house;Temporary change of residence to a relative’s house or a nearby town;Escort to and from the court and provision of Government vehicle or a State funded conveyance for the date of hearing;Holding of in-camera trials;Allowing a support person to remain present during recording of statement and deposition;Usage of specially designed vulnerable witness court rooms which have special arrangements like live video links, one way mirrors and screens apart from separate passages for witnesses and accused, with option to modify the image of face of the witness and to modify the audio feed of the witness’ voice, so that he/she is not identifiable;Ensuring expeditious recording of deposition during trial on day to day basis without adjournments;Awarding time to time periodical financial aids/grants to the witness from Witness Protection Fund for the purpose of re- location, sustenance or starting a new vocation/profession, if desired;Any other form of protection measures considered necessary. The Supreme Court also called for proper implementation of the scheme vide order dated November 4, 2020, in the case relating to pendency of criminal cases against legislators. “The Witness Protection Scheme, 2018, approved by this Court in the case of Mahender Chawla v. Union of India, (2019) 14 SCC 615 should be strictly enforced by the Union and States and Union Territories. Keeping in mind the vulnerability of the witnesses in such cases, the Trial Court may consider granting protection under the said Scheme to witnesses without their making any specific application in this regard,” it had observed. Following this, the Karnataka High Court also directed the State government to issue an order constituting a competent authority as prescribed in the Witness Protection Scheme, 2018, within two weeks. “There cannot be any dispute in the cases pending before the special court prominent political personalities will be the accused. There is a possibility that some of the prosecution witnesses may become vulnerable witnesses. We are therefore of the view that it is all the more necessary to implement the witness protection scheme, in relation to the prosecution witness in the cases pending before the special court,” a Division bench of the High Court said.

Winter storm could dump more than a foot of snow on interior Northeast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A major winter storm is set to bring heavy snow from the Midwest to the Northeast this weekend — with widespread totals of 10 to 20 inches in the interior Northeast.The storm will also bring an icy mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to parts of the Ohio Valley and Northeast, making travel dangerous in spots. Meanwhile, behind the storm, an intense drop in temperatures will lead to a flash freeze in parts of the Northeast on Sunday night as wind chills dip below zero.The effects of the storm are already being felt on travel. There had been more than 1,100 flights canceled on Saturday as of 6 a.m.There are heavy bands of snow moving through northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin on Saturday morning. Snow in this region could fall at a rate of 1 inch per hour through the morning.Meanwhile, a line of strong to severe storms is extending south on the warmer side of the storm through Arkansas and Louisiana. Over 116 million Americans are under either an advisory, watch or warning for this major winter storm from Iowa to Maine, including Chicago, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, New York and Boston. Additionally, new wind alerts and wind chill alerts are being issued Saturday morning.The storm system will organize a little more as it rapidly moves east on Saturday, with snow moving along the Interstate 80 and Interstate 70 corridors from Illinois to Pennsylvania and New York. Wintry precipitation will arrive in the Northeast early Saturday evening with snow covering much of the interior Northeast by 8 p.m. Eastern time. Along the Interstate 95 corridor, a complicated situation could unfold, with precipitation mixing with rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow.As the storm pulls away, temperatures will drop 25 to 40 degrees on Sunday afternoon into the overnight hours. Anything that has fallen will freeze quickly on Sunday night.Furthermore, areas that receive rainfall could wash away salt and brine solutions on the road, and make for hazardous travel on Sunday night. All snowfall in the interior Northeast will become rock solid and back-breaking. This rapid temperature drop that brings impacts such as this is often referred to as a flash freeze.Snowfall totals in the interior Northeast, particularly across central New York, will likely reach 1 to 2 feet. Widespread totals of 6 to 12 inches are possible from Indiana to Maine north and west of the major I-95 cities.Ice will be a major concern just north and west of I-95, including cities such as Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Illinois. Ice accumulation of one-quarter of an inch is enough to down trees and power lines. Additionally, as the temperatures plummet, the winds will increase, further increasing the chance for damage.Wind chills in the wake of the storm will be well below zero on Monday morning in the Northeast. With a fresh snow pack and frozen snow, wind chills of minus 20 are likely across much of the interior Northeast. Wind chills as low as minus 10 are possible in the New York City metro area on Monday morning.Besides the wintry precipitation and plummeting temperatures, severe weather is likely Saturday in the Gulf. Brief tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are all possible for places such as New Orleans; Birmingham, Alabama; and Pensacola, Florida.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Suspect in Mar-a-Lago security incident due in court

first_imgablokhin/iStock(WASHINGTON) —  The Chinese woman at the center of a recent security breach at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago country club is expected back in a Florida federal court Monday for a second pre-trial detention hearing.Yujing Zhang, 33, is accused of lying her way through two security checkpoints at the “Winter White House” in late March before she was identified by a receptionist as not on the club’s access list. A public defender argued in a previous detention hearing that Zhang believed she was attending an event that had been canceled without her knowledge, and she had been allowed in the club by accident. Zhang, who previously told the court she was a consultant for a Chinese investment firm, allegedly was found with several electronic devices, including four cellphones and a thumb drive that the Secret Service said, according to a preliminary analysis, contained malware. Prosecutors said more electronics were found in her hotel room, among them multiple SIM cards and a device designed to detect hidden cameras.Zhang is not charged with any espionage-related crimes, but prosecutors said last week that possibility was still under investigation. Some experts have told ABC News they’re skeptical if what they said would be “terrible tradecraft” for a professional spy.The president wasn’t at the club at the time of the incident, instead visiting a nearby golf course.The breach raised concerns about the security apparatus at Mar-a-Lago, and lawmakers asked the FBI to assess the situation.“Mar-a-Lago presents a different protective environment because it’s almost like you have a private residence with a public space,” Don Mihalek, a former senior Secret Service agent and ABC News contributor, said after the incident. “Other presidential residences, they’re pure residences. … Mar-a-Lago is both a private residence and a private club that allows members in.”In February 2019, the Government Accountability Office determined the Secret Service had put in place sufficient security measures to protect the president, but described a burdensome and expensive process in doing so.After a briefing by the Secret Service days after the incident, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., told reporters he was satisfied that the Secret Service “has done a pretty good job” and said he was “confident” in the president’s security.Zhang has been in custody since her arrest on March 30. A detention hearing last Monday was meant to decide whether she would stay in custody until trial, but the judge said that he needed more time to decide.A criminal complaint filed against Zhang accuses her of one count of lying to federal agents and another count of entering a restricted area. Robert Adler, Zhang’s federal defender, has declined to comment on the allegations against Zhang outside of court, and she has not entered a plea.The Chinese government has not commented on the case except to say that Zhang has been provided with consular assistance, generally a routine matter when foreign nationals are involved in the U.S. legal system.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The Legal Consequences Suffered By Former President Clinton Stemming From Lewinsky Scandal.

first_imgThe Legal Consequences Suffered By Former President Clinton Stemming From Lewinsky Scandal.by Dan EvenShortly after Bill Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to make the case that his wife Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States, an image purportedly listing the various fines and consequences he suffered for lying under oath during the Monica Lewinsky scandal showed up on social media.The list displayed above is mostly accurate, although some of the claims deserve extra clarification:Bill Clinton was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over the Lewinsky incident.While Clinton can no longer practice law in front of the highest court, it’s not accurate to say that he was disbarred from either the Supreme Court or from practicing law in Arkansas. Clinton’s license was suspended in Arkansas, but he was not disbarred, and while Clinton did face the possibility of being barred from arguing in front the U.S. Supreme Court, he resigned before the ruling was handed down.On his last day in office in 2001, Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension of his Arkansas law license in order to head off any criminal charges for lying under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky. Clinton has been eligible to seek reinstatement of his license since 2006, but as of 2013 he had not applied to do so.Shortly after Clinton’s license was suspended in Arkansas, the U.S. Supreme Court suspended Clinton from presenting cases in front of the highest court (which he had never done) and gave him 40 days to contest his disbarment (which Clinton did not do). Instead, he resigned from the Supreme Court bar:Former President Clinton, facing the possibility of being barred from practicing law before the U.S. Supreme Court because of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, has resigned instead, his lawyer said.“Former President Clinton hereby respectfully requests to resign from the bar of this court,” his lawyer, David Kendall, said in a two-page letter to the high court’s clerk. Kendall did not elaborate on why Clinton decided to resign.Clinton’s resignation from the Supreme Court bar will have little practical impact. Clinton has not practiced before the Supreme Court and was not expected to argue any cases in the future.He also paid a $25,000 fine over the Lewinsky incident.In addition to agreeing to a five-year suspension of his Arkansas law license, Clinton accepted a $25,000 fine:Mr. Clinton paid the fine with a personal check on March 21, said Marie-Bernarde Miller, the lawyer who handled a disbarment lawsuit brought by a committee of the Arkansas Supreme Court.“The case is completed,” Ms. Miller said.Clinton was fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones case.In April 1999, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright found Clinton in contempt of court for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones sexual harassment trial and fined him over $90,000:The federal judge who found President Clinton in contempt of court levied a penalty of $90,686 against him, making him the first chief executive ever assessed such a payment.Repeating her condemnation of Clinton for lying under oath in the Paula Corbin Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright said that she was imposing the sanction to cover some of Jones’ legal expenses and “to deter others who might consider emulating the president’s misconduct.”Robert S. Bennett, Clinton’s private attorney, said that he would not challenge the ruling. “We accept the judgment of the court and will comply with it.”He also paid an $850,000 settlement over the Lewinsky incident.Bill Clinton did write a large settlement check, but that money went to Paula Jones and not Monica Lewinsky,In 1994, Paula Jones filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton. Thar case dragged on for four years (while Clinton was serving as President) before it was finally settled in November 1998 with a check for $850,000:Clinton mailed the settlement cheque to Mrs. Jones, even as he braced for the heaviest fallout yet from her harassment suit — an impeachment trial in the Senate.To finance the settlement, the president drew about $375,000 from his and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal funds and got the rest of the money, about $475,000, from an insurance policy, a White House official told The Associated Press.“This ends it. The check is being Fed-Exed” to Bill McMillan, one of Mrs. Jones’ lawyers, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Aqueous Shares Pro-Shot Video Of ‘Kitty Chaser (Explosions)’ With Umphrey’s McGee’s Andy Farag

first_imgGroove-rock jam band Aqueous has shared the pro-shot live video capturing their performance of “Kitty Chaser (Explosions)” from a recent show at Chicago’s Chop Shop late last month. The concert back on November 29th was part of Aqueous’ headlining fall tour in support of their 2018 studio album, Color Wheel, and featured a notable sit-in by Umphrey’s McGee percussionist Andy Farag during the second half of the band’s performance that night.The performance of “Kitty Chaser (Explosions)” off Aqueous’ 2014 Cycles LP came at the end of their second set. Farag had actually joined in on the night’s show when the band returned to the stage following the set break and began the second half with “Second Sight”, “Numbers and Facts”, “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)”, and “Split the Difference”. Aqueous and Farag continued their second-half collaboration with a transition out of “Split the Difference” right into “Kitty Chaser”, which ran for a roaring 26-minutes before the set came to an electrifying close.The eerily psychedelic performance of the 2014 original tune begins right at the start of the video below. Farag can be seen pounding away on his mix of bongos and other percussion-based toys in the back right corner of the stage behind guitarist/keyboardist Dave Loss. Mike Gantzer handles guitar duties by himself at first as he grooves right into the song’s opening verse at the 1:20-minute mark. Loss ditches his keys for the guitar to join in on the fun shortly thereafter, and the two power their way through the first chorus and into a roaring exchange of distorted riffs.Related: Aqueous, Mungion Share Full Pro-Shot Videos From Saturday’s Boulder Show At The Fox Theatre [Watch]Gantzer takes the first solo, slowing things down to a much more relaxed tempo thanks to his mix of space-sounding effects tones. The room then goes dark as the song regroups and changes direction with the only lights coming from the red LEDs located behind the band. When the lights finally come back on, Aqueous and Farag are already taking their building momentum into overdrive with a lengthy instrumental group jam that continues throughout the rest of the performance. Loss goes back and forth between his keys and guitars throughout the long jam before eventually helping to close the song out with some shredding of his own in the last four minutes of the video.The band would eventually return for a one-song encore of “Realize Your Light” with Farag again joining them, but “Kitty Chaser (Explosions)” could easily be considered the highlight of the show.Aqueous with Andy Farag – “Kitty Chaser (Explosions) – 11/29/2018[Video: Aqueous]Aqueous recently announced they will be heading back out on tour early next year with a co-headling tour alongside Big Something scheduled to begin February 7th in Bloomington, Indiana.

Plugged in

first_imgLaptops, personal digital assistants, and iPhones were a ubiquitous and fitting presence at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum on Wednesday (March 10).As audience members tapped away on their myriad electronic devices, Jerry Mechling, Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) lecturer in public policy and faculty chair of the Leadership for a Networked World Program, asked a panel of experts to discuss the wealth of opportunities and challenges presented by new digital technologies.The discussion, titled “Digital Governance from the State House to the White House,” specifically examined how the technology revolution has impacted federal, state, and local government, and explored the ways technology can be used to promote and advance democracy while at the same time avoiding potential pitfalls like privacy issues and outdated infrastructures.Leaders who “get it,” who understand the importance of using technology to further democracy and “are committed to the principles of openness and transparency,” are a vital part of the equation, said Aneesh Chopra, chief technology officer of the United States.Chopra noted that his boss is part of the new generation of leaders who fully embrace the power and potential of technology.He cited Obama’s Open Government Initiative, which promotes transparency, access to information, and the public’s participation in federal government through feedback and collaboration, as evidence of the administration’s commitment to engage with technology.Using the Internet, said Chopra, the administration has engaged with doctors who weighed in on an online forum on health care as well as with the front line of Department of Veterans Affairs workers who offered suggestions via the Internet on how to improve the cumbersome method of processing veterans’ claims. Additionally, all federal agencies, he noted, continue to solicit feedback from the public via links on their Web sites that allow visitors to submit ideas.“If you want to solve big problems,” said Chopra, “you are going to want to tap into the expertise of the American people and hear … all of their views in order to come up with the best strategy.”The current governor of Massachusetts used the Internet to gain critical name recognition and communicate with voters, remarked Anne Margulies, chief information officer for the commonwealth. A relatively unknown four years ago, Gov. Deval Patrick used online platforms, she said, “to get his message out,” adding that the state’s highest executive continues to use technology as an important “way to communicate and engage” with the public.Expanding broadband access in underserved areas, developing universal technologies that can be used from state to state, reworking an outdated infrastructure, and developing solid privacy and security practices are all part of the way forward, said the panelists.Persuading middle managers within any organization, many of whom are not as tech savvy as younger generations, to embrace the digital age and its innovations, is another challenge, said Teri Takai.Assisting those managers in understanding how “tweeting” or “blogging” can “change the dynamics” of what they do will drive important systemic change, said Takai, chief information officer for the state of California.Chopra, who holds an M.P.P. from HKS, urged the School’s next generation of graduates to be part of the technical revolution.“We will be there to help,” he said, “but we need to have your participation.”last_img read more

Chasing the caffeine high

first_imgThis is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates.Jesse Kaplan may be the only entrepreneur on campus who’s more likely to be hunched over a sink doing dishes than over a laptop writing code. But then, the founder of Harvard’s first student-run coffee shop was never too concerned with adhering to someone else’s concept of success.“I like doing things my own way,” the graduating senior said one recent afternoon as he set up chairs in Cabot Café, the cozy study spot and performance space that he launched two years ago in the Cabot House basement. It was a statement — or an understatement — not just of his preference for furniture arrangements, but for plotting an unusual path at Harvard.After growing up in nearby Newton, Kaplan was intent on leaving the Boston area after high school. But the ambition and energy of Harvard students attracted him to the College, and as a freshman he threw himself into campus life with a polymath’s vigor. By sophomore year, he was involved in everything from hip-hop and Indian dance to a cappella to SAT tutoring for disadvantaged youth. He led admissions tours, tutored in the economics department, joined a fraternity, organized events for Hillel House, and performed in two musicals on campus, all while maintaining a perfect GPA.And then, somehow, he got bored.“I pretty quickly exhausted all the things I saw myself getting out of Harvard,” the economics concentrator said. “I made a conscious decision to invest the next year or two of my life in something I would have complete ownership over, something that would last beyond my time here.”The café, which he conceived as a sophomore with his Cabot roommate (and coffee enthusiast) Dan Lynch, gave him the purposeful project he sought. It also gave undergraduates living in the Radcliffe Quad — a location both beloved and bemoaned for its remove from the bustle of the Square — a place to grab a snack or a latte after dining hall hours, as well as a place to socialize, host events, and, of course, cram.“As soon as we created this comfortable space with caffeinated drinks, we attracted all the studiers, which in retrospect seems obvious,” Kaplan said with a laugh.With a $3,000 loan and the support of Cabot House Masters Rakesh and Stephanie Khurana, they transformed a dilapidated basement space — once a Quad convenience store — into a performance venue, student art gallery, and coffee shop for a four-day trial run in the spring of 2011.“We had events every night, and it was packed,” Kaplan said.To prepare for the café’s formal opening that fall, Kaplan put in 10- to 15-hour days. He became a certified food protection manager, obtained permits from the city of Cambridge, wrote a “barista bible” training manual with Lynch, and hired a staff. The café is now open five nights a week; additional grant money and profits have been put back into the café for improvements.“It’s not hugely profitable, but it’s completely sustainable,” he said.Profit margin aside, the café is possibly the best-known student enterprise at Harvard — a precedent-setting success, Kaplan hopes, for future partnerships between the University and budding entrepreneurs.“I think if I had known how much work it would have taken, I wouldn’t have done it,” he said, reflecting on a weeknight schedule that kept him on call until 2 a.m. “But I’m glad I didn’t know.”After two years of running a brick-and-mortar operation, Kaplan spent his last semester interviewing at early-stage digital startups in New York — many of which have been eager to hire him after his success with the café. He has also trained three new student managers, ensuring that the Quad’s new social hub will live on.“I was always wondering what my first startup would be,” Kaplan said. “Cabot Café will always be the first business I launched.”last_img read more

Paris 2024: In the shadow of Tokyo but already hit by coronavirus

first_imgThe Paris Olympics might be scheduled for 2024, but they are already feeling the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic that has seen this year’s Tokyo Games postponed by a year to 2021.”There will be better days to come, that’s for sure,” says Denis Masseglia, president of the French National Olympic Committee.Masseglia has acknowledged that the outlook for organizing committee head Tony Estanguet is “not looking good”, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the subsequent postponement of the Tokyo Games and “concern over the economic recovery coupled with a possible second wave” of coronavirus cases. More expensive?  The current economic reality is that the organizing committee will have to make some cuts as key revenues from sponsors are expected to be smaller that initially forecast.Paris’ first Olympics since 1924 are set to have a budget of 6.8 billion euros ($7.71 billion) with Estanguet’s local body covering 3.8 billion euros of the cost of which some 1.1 billion euros is to come from sponsors.”We know this was an ambition that was fairly cautious. Today, it becomes a real ambition that we will have to seek,” acknowledged Estanguet, adding that “between 30-40 percent of the target had already been met”.Construction has also been hit, with Solideo, the public company expected to start work in 2021 on big projects such as the Olympic Village, which will house 10,500 competitors, expected to raise its bill due to related building costs.A prime example is the Aquatic Centre, which will be constructed just opposite the Stade de France, the existing main stadium for the Games north of Paris. The cost of the swimming venue had risen sharply from 113 million euros to 174.7 million euros by the end of April.Given the long history of Olympic budgets going well beyond their initial estimations, one source was clear about what had to happen.”Either we increase the budget” for Solideo, which amounts to 3.0 billion euros (including 1.5 billion euros of public funds from the state) “or it will be necessary to make some cuts to the projects”, the source said. But four years out from the opening ceremony in Paris, Estanguet refuses to be pessimistic.”This project presents the possibility of showing off an enthusiastic France which will welcome the world,” the three-time Olympic gold medalist in canoeing said Tuesday.center_img Northern legacyOne of the most telling announcements for Paris organizers came in December, when the Pacific island of Tahiti was unveiled as host of the surfing competition and the iconic Place de la Concorde in Paris revealed as the venue for “urban sports” such as sport climbing, three-on-three basketball, BMX freestyle, breakdance and skateboard, guaranteeing broadcasters some dream images.But now, Estanguet is warning that the whole of the project is under review and “there will maybe be a game of musical chairs” when it comes to venues.With that game, however, comes potential political drama between the organizers and the Seine-Saint-Denis department, the poorest in metropolitan France but around which much of the Olympic legacy planning has been based — and promised — echoing the approach that the 2012 organizers took with Stratford in east London.”The heart of the Olympic Games is in Seine-Saint-Denis, and it’s a condition of the commitment of Seine-Saint-Denis in this project,” Stephane Troussel, head of the department’s council, told AFP.”There is no question of stripping our area of the tangible and intangible legacy of the Games.” Topics :last_img read more

Bullied kids should hit back, says US expert

first_imgNZ Herald 21 Nov 2011Bully victims should fight back with their fists – and parents should not be so over-protective, says an overseas expert. And while American human behavioural specialist Dr John Demartini’s views have been decried in Australia, a New Zealand parenting guru agrees with him. Ian Grant, the co-founder of Parents Inc, said a generation of Kiwi children were being raised as “Peter Pans” who were easy targets for bullies. Mr Grant said although violence should be treated as an absolute last resort, in a very few cases it could put an end to bullying. “What’s happened in our modern world is that we have welded words. So if you say violence, people think it’s cruel and evil. “But sometimes you’ve got to stand up for yourself, and if that means hitting somebody else, I don’t have any issue with that.” Australian anti-bullying experts have condemned the similar message being promoted by Dr Demartini. The doctor, who is on a lecture tour to promote his book Benefits of the Bully, has told Australian audiences a bullied child was “a by-product of over-support”. “You have to teach the child the truth. If you teach them a fantasy world where we are all meant to be nice and get along, they will not appreciate how life really is,” Dr Demartini told news.com.au.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10767538last_img read more

Britons leave Tunisia amid new terror threats

first_imgBritain’s Foreign Office has advised against all but essential travel to Tunisia  and is asking all its citizens to leave the North African country.This follows warnings that further terrorist attacks were highly likely there.A total of 38 people among them 30 Britons were killed when a lone gunman, identified as Saif Rezgui, opened fire on holidaymakers at a sea front resort in the town of Sousse two weeks ago.In March, two gunmen killed 24 people dead, 21 of them foreign tourists, in an attack at the Bardo museum in the Tunisian capital Tunis.British authorities say they don’t believe that the security measures put in place in Tunisia were sufficient to keep holidaymakers safe.UK secretary of state for foreign and commonwealth affairs Philip Hammond said in a video statement that while the office doesn’t have any information about a specific or imminent threat, its intelligence suggests another terrorist attack is “highly likely.”According to Hammond, there are approximately 3,000 British tourists currently in the country, and a few hundred British residents. The overwhelming majority of them are on organized tours, which have agreed to work with the British government to bring them back on short notice.Thomas Cook, a UK-based tourist agency, said that it will bring all of its customers currently in Tunisia back to the UK as soon as possible, via 10 flights booked over the weekend with third-party carriers.The agency tweeted that it will be canceling bookings to Tunisia through Oct. 31: People join hands as they observe a minute’s silence in memory of those killed in a recent attack by an Islamist gunman, at a beach in Sousselast_img read more

Players know the script – Sherwood

first_img Following a touchline tete-a-tete with Benfica coach Jorge Jesus, the Spurs boss has preferred to watch matches from the stands, claiming it is for the good of the team. However, a section of Tottenham fans audibly disagreed with that last weekend, chanting “where’s our manager?” during the 4-0 trouncing at Liverpool. “We will play the same way between now and the end of the season and it’s up to them to try to entertain. “I’ll be there at the forefront with them and hopefully we can get a positive result together.” Monday certainly looks a decent opportunity for Tottenham to put a smile back on their fans’ faces, although Sherwood is wary of the threat posed by Sunderland. Managed by former Spurs team-mate Gus Poyet, the Black Cats are in relegation trouble and need positive results quickly. “If their spirit can mirror their manager, then they will certainly be going until they have no breath left in them,” Sherwood said. “That gives them a real opportunity. They haven’t been fantastic – their results have suggested that. “But we really have to worry about ourselves. It is all about pride now and getting the maximum points possible between now and the end of the season. “We’ve got to play with the shackles off. We are not coming up against a technical mismatch now, against teams in the top four. “We’re playing against teams who are in and around mid-table or below that, so we really have to play with a lot of freedom and try to entertain these great fans we have.” Sherwood will be able to call upon top scorer Emmanuel Adebayor against Sunderland after a spell on the sidelines, while Vlad Chiriches and Paulinho are also back in contention. However, Kyle Walker, Etienne Capoue and Erik Lamela remain unavailable and are joined in the sidelines by Roberto Soldado and Jan Vertonghen after they were injured in the defeat at Anfield. Poyet admits Sunderland are going to have to do something unexpected to get themselves out of relegation trouble. The Black Cats head for Tottenham on Monday night lying seven points adrift of safety and knowing they will need to win at least three of their remaining eight games if they are to stand any chance of remaining a Barclays Premier League club. Given the fact that they have only six league wins to their name to date this season, and that their four away fixtures take them to Spurs, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United, that may be a tall order. However, Poyet knows from experience that strange things happen as seasons draw to a close, and he is hoping that will be the case for his struggling team. Asked if they may have to do something unexpected to survive, Poyet said: “Yes, yes – but I think it is possible. “I remember clubs in the past – I am not going to talk about names – they have played five or six games at the end of the season against teams who were playing for nothing and they won four or five. “People say it’s incredible, a miracle, but it depends what the there teams put on the pitch and what you do. But it can happen. “I suppose I would try as a professional not to alter the end of the season, but if a team goes down early and they make seven changes to try things for the following year, I wouldn’t blame them because they are trying for themselves. “Now that can affect the result of that game and then everybody is blaming somebody else. But a the end of the day, you have got 38 games, it’s you. “You cannot blame the rest for what they do because it happens during the season when someone is playing in the Champions League and chooses to make five changes in midweek. “Nobody remembers those, they only remember the last three or four when people are already out of any possibility.” Poyet has no fresh injury concerns. T he Uruguayan’s biggest problem will be to find the best XI to attempt to return from White Hart Lane with something to show for their efforts, after admitting he may have made a mistake in starting Monday’s 2-1 home defeat by West Ham with leading scorer Adam Johnson sitting on the bench. Tim Sherwood will return to the Tottenham dugout when Sunderland visit on Monday – a decision the head coach insists is nothing to do with the fans’ irritation at him watching recent matches from the stands. Those supporters will no doubt be pleased to hear he will be back in the dugout on Monday, although he continues to defend his decision to watch from the directors’ box. “I’ll be on the touchline on Monday – I’ll be knocking out as many people as I can,” Sherwood said with a smile. “I’ve had a lot of time to prepare this week. If they don’t know what it’s all about this week, then they ain’t going to know. “When you’re playing against Liverpool and teams like that, I feel there was a technical mismatch between the two teams. “We have to try to worry about them and they might need some adjusting during the game – they certainly did after 20 minutes. “There was nothing we could do to turn it around, unfortunately. “I can learn more about my players sitting up top for the future than going down there to the touchline. “I would’ve had to have no effect on that game. Against teams we’ve got left to play, the players know the script now. Press Associationlast_img read more

Bairstow celebrates Ashes ton with helmet head butt

first_imgPERTH, Australia (Reuters) – Tales of Jonny Bairstow’s head-butting incident left Australia captain Steve Smith giggling like a schoolboy just weeks ago, but the wicketkeeper batsman’s maiden Ashes century in Perth yesterday allowed England skipper Joe Root the last laugh.Bairstow gently tapped his helmet against his head upon reaching the milestone to the delight of Root and his team mates who jubilantly roared their support in the dressing room.The wicketkeeper’s 119 helped push England to 403 on day three of the third Test, their highest first-innings total in Australia since January 2011.Bairstow said his celebration was a bit of “light-hearted, fun” in reference to the October night out where he greeted Australia opener Cameron Bancroft with a head butt at a bar.It took nearly a month for the incident to be revealed, however, when Australia’s fielders were heard trying to get inside the Yorkshireman’s head when he was batting during the series-opener in Brisbane.Bancroft recalled the incident in a news conference with his captain Smith sitting beside him laughing heartily, following England’s 10-wicket first Test defeat at the Gabba.Bairstow felt he had been “stitched up” by Australia and that the event had been blown completely out of proportion.So he celebrated emotionally at the WACA after pulling Mitchell Marsh behind square for a single to reach his ton.“The hundred, in many ways, was my favourite one,” the 28-year-old told reporters.”I’ve played in a few Ashes series so far now and to score an Ashes hundred is something you dream about as a kid.“It was really good fun out there, I absolutely loved every single minute of it.”Bairstow was unable to truly cash in, with his batting partners crumbling around him as England lost their last six wickets for 35 runs.He was bowled by a full inswinger from fast bowler Mitchell Starc which clipped the inside edge and uprooted middle stump.But his first Test hundred in 18 months helped tweak the narrative of England’s Ashes tour, which up to Perth had been blighted by a string of off-field incidents.It was also a part of an England record fifth wicket stand of 237 runs with Dawid Malan, who scored a fine 140.Anchored by 92 not out, captain Steve Smith Australia moved to 203 for three at stumps, having trimmed England’s lead to 200 runs.Bairstow felt England remained well-placed in the match, despite the late batting collapse in the morning session.“You can look at it both ways and say: look, it was a fantastic recovery from being 100 for four and we’ve got 400 on the board,” he said.”Or you can look at it and go: ‘yeah, well, we’ve let the position slip.“But at the same time … we’ve got the capabilities of taking five-six wickets in a session. We’ve shown that previously so there’s no reason why we can’t now.”last_img read more

This week in esports: Galaxy Battles, Paladins, Brentford and BELONG

first_imgIt’s been a fairly quiet week in the world of esports with news starting to gather pace as we head into what’s sure to be a blockbuster 2018. The biggest news this week comes from Valve & Galaxy Battles as well as Hi-Rez’s title Paladins with rumours of Brentford’s entrance to esports and BELONG’s Arena Clash expansion also notable news. As always, here’s our recap of the biggest stories in esports this week. Galaxy Battles has major status revoked by ValveThe Galaxy Battles Major hosted by Fallout Gaming has had its major status and Valve involvement revoked, with the game developer citing “unreasonable infringements on the privacy of the players” as the main reason for the decision. Credit: ValveIt comes less than two weeks before the tournament, hosted in the Philippines was set to get underway. The blog post from Valve reads “the tournament itself may still proceed, but without any involvement of Valve or the Dota Pro Circuit”. This will mean that the prize money will effectively be halved, as Valve contributed $500,000 to majors in the Dota Pro Circuit and also the coveted Pro Circuit points that contribute towards qualification for the flagship tournament The International will not be earned.The blog post is brief, but reads:“Based on information we’ve recently confirmed regarding new government regulations for esports players entering the Philippines, we have decided to rescind the tournament’s Major designation, including the Pro Circuit qualifying points, for the Galaxy Battles 2018 tournament. This is based on what we feel are unreasonable infringements on the privacy of the players as a condition to enter the country”.It later on continues to apologise to attendees and the Philippines, stating:“This isn’t a reflection on how we feel about the fans in the Philippines, and we are sorry for those that were planning on attending the event”.Read the full article here.Paladins to introduce battle royale game modeHi-Rez Studios has announced that Paladins will introduce a new Battle Royale game mode. The news was made public during the keynote address on the opening morning of the Hi-Rez Expo in Atlanta.Paladins: Battlegrounds will offer an unconventional twist on the increasingly popular battle royale genre. The genre mashup will create ability-driven combat, combined with survival gameplay and a fantasy setting to set it apart from the likes of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds which truly took 2017 by storm.In Paladins: Battlegrounds players spawn into a large map as per a typical battle royale map. They’ll have mounts just like in Paladins, and be able to explore and loot through various outposts as well as tracking zeppelins that drop legendary gear – much like the airdrops in PUBG. As expected, the last team standing will be the team that emerges victorious.Read the full article here.Brentford FC could enter the esports frayBrentford, the West London based English Football League Championship (“EFL”) club could be entering the esports space soon, a LinkedIn job posting suggests.The post, added two days ago, for a Marketing Manager includes the following under roles and responsibilities: To create a pilot project exploring the opportunity of esports for a football club, evaluate and build and agreed programme of activity against objectives There’s no suggestion that any esports experience, or even knowledge is required although the esports segment is clearly a tiny element to a much wider job role. The esports landscape has exploded in the last year with over 175 traditional sports clubs getting involved. Recently, Founder of Code Red Esports, Paul “Redeye” Chaloner compiled a spreadsheet showing traditional sports outfits that have entered the esports space. Whilst it’s incredible to see the amount of teams now involved in the burgeoning industry, there has not been a concerted push from English teams to enter the space. Read the full article here.GAME announces expansion of BELONG Arena ClashGAME, the video game retailer has announced that its BELONG Arena Clash will return for a Spring season with registration opening today for gamers over the age of 16 in the United Kingdom. The esports tournament gives casual and hardcore gamers alike the chance to join a team at their local BELONG store and compete for a place at the live finals which will take place at Insomnia62 at the NEC in Birmingham over the Easter weekend. There are now 19 BELONG arenas across the country, and those involved will have the chance to compete in: Call of Duty: WWII, Overwatch, League of Legends and Tekken 7.

Michael Jordan, David Stern deny gambling conspiracy theory in ‘The Last Dance’

first_img“I didn’t retire because the league kicked me out or they suspended me for a year and a half,” Jordan said. “That is not true. There is no truth to that. I needed a break, my father just passed and I retired.”ESPN has produced “The Last Dance” in the manner Jordan wanted — something the organization openly admits — leaving questions about how a lack of editorial independence would color coverage of the controversial elements of Jordan’s career.It was somewhat surprising, then, for ESPN to dwell on the gambling conspiracy allegations for several scenes. Jordan and then-commissioner David Stern, who died earlier this year, spoke on camera in Sunday’s showing of “The Last Dance” and denied the longtime gambling conspiracy theory.”Ridiculous,” Stern said. “I could bang on the table, say … it’s a slanderous lie, but whatever, it’s just not true. Never was and never will be no matter how many times people ask the question.””If the urge comes back, if the Bulls will have me, if David Stern lets me back in the league, I may come back.”Michael Jordan announcing his 1st retirement.pic.twitter.com/08deG4Ddy3— Ballislife.com (@Ballislife) May 11, 2020MORE: Explaining the MJ gambling conspiracyJordan felt burned out by his first championship three-peat with the Bulls and was dealing with emotions that stemmed from the murder of his father, James. Like Stern, Jordan insisted his NBA exit that year was his own choice. Episode 7 of “The Last Dance” touched on accusations Michael Jordan was forced into retirement by the NBA in 1993 because of his gambling habits.Newspaper columnists at the time wrote without evidence that the NBA opted for a covert ban of Jordan so it wouldn’t need to smear the name of its brightest star and an important part of its brand.last_img read more

Weary Warriors struggling in adversity

first_img RESTRAINT MINNEAPOLIS (AP): Off-colour jokes. Criticising officiating. Lamenting a tough portion of the schedule. The Golden State Warriors have rarely dealt with adversity over the last three regular seasons. Now that it has arrived, there are signs of tension and frustration with a team trying to find a groove without Kevin Durant while in pursuit of a third straight trip to the NBA Finals. After a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night – Golden State’s fourth defeat in six games – forward Andre Iguodala made several racially tinged comments during his postgame remarks to the media. The comments came after coach Steve Kerr announced that Iguodala, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson would sit out a showdown with the second-seeded Spurs in San Antonio on Saturday night. “No clue,” Iguodala said when asked if he was aware of Kerr’s plan before the game. “I do what master say.” Iguodala also was asked what was at the root of the issues for a Warriors team that was dominant with Durant, but has looked tired and vulnerable since he went down with a knee injury on February 28. Iguodala, who is black, used a racial slur to imply that was what the media was looking for, then said “Just play harder. Figure it out. Change gonna come. You know what we used to say. Change gonna come.” He later clarified to ESPN that he has no issue with Kerr or his decision to rest players in a nationally televised game on Saturday night. The Warriors also expressed significant frustration with the officiating from Ken Mauer’s crew in the 103-102 loss to the Wolves. Kerr said Andrew Wiggins “did not get fouled” on a play late in the game that put him on the free throw line for the winning foul shots. Green didn’t speak to the media until about 45 minutes after the game ended, a very long time for a player who normally likes to address things quickly and move on. He said he spent most of that time contemplating whether he wanted to risk a $25,000 fine from the NBA for criticising the officials. He joked that he was going to buy himself a watch for deciding to use restraint, even after questioning a technical foul he received for getting tangled up with Karl-Anthony Towns. The road-weary team is at the tail end of a tough stretch of eight games in eight different cities in 13 days. With Durant not expected back for another month or so, the minutes are piling up and the heavy favourites to come out of the Western Conference for a chance at a second championship in three years is just one and a half games up on the Spurs for the No. 1 seed. Curry is struggling with his shooting. He was 1 for 8 from 3-point range against the Wolves and is 18 for 76 from long distance in March. But a reprieve is right around the corner. After the Spurs game, the Warriors finish the season with 11 of their final 16 at home, and Green, Curry, Iguodala and Thompson will get three full days of rest before they have to play again.last_img read more

Over 70 Women Participate in Global Mentoring Walk

first_imgMore than 70 Liberian women last Sunday participated in the Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk launched as part of the International Women’s day celebration at Cooper’s Beach near ELWA hospital in Monrovia.The theme was: Make it happen,” intended to empower women by mentoring them.Speaking at the program, Dr. Nina Bowen, Team Leader, Democracy Rights and Governance, USAID/Liberia and US Embassy, urged the participants’ to focus on what they want to achieve in life.She described mentorship as a key factor because it helps one to find the right way in life.“If we walk alone, we walk faster but when we walk together you can go far and achieve that which you want,” Dr. Bowen said.The resident Chief Judge Eva Mappy Morgan, who is one of the mentors, said peer mentoring begins with the participants and they must be careful in choosing the kind of peers to achieve their goals.“If we must mentor you, you must follow your mind in whatever you have a passion to achieve in life,” Judge Mappy said.She urged women to work together and build self-esteem in achieving their goals.For her part Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah asserted that in order for Liberian women and girls to achieve their goals in life, they must focus on their dreams.“Everyone must have a dream of becoming what they want to become and your dreams must be clearly defined and have a time limit,” she said.According to Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk flag bearer, Nancy Ijeoma Obi, the launch of the program is to bring positive impact into the lives of women and girls women by assigning mentors in various fields like nursing, engineering, geologists, judges etc, to guide them on to achieve their life time goals.She also disclosed that the project will last for six months during which there are plans to take the program to other parts of Liberia.Cecilia Davis, Secretary General of Society for Women Engineers of Liberia (SWEL), said the program has enlightened the participants on how to go about achieving their goals by having passion and gaining self esteem.She said her organization also mentors women and girls to impact society, adding “We want our women and young people to work with passion.  Some complain of being maltreated by their spouses because they are now taking bold steps to become what they want to be.”Meanwhile, the Global Mentoring Walk has set up women leaders and emerging women leaders’ groups to walk together in their communities to mentor others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Appointment of new Top Cop not imminent

first_imgThe appointment of a substantive Police Commissioner could take a while longer, as there are certain clear plans that must be first put in place to make way for this to happen.Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, President David Granger, said Thursday the appointment of a new Police Commissioner is dependent on an agreement with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo.Speaking to the press briefly, the President said the Police Service Commission and the Public Service Commission must both be appointed in order to make wayGuyana Police Force Headquartersfor the nomination of a new Top Cop.“Well, again I have to resort to consultation with Leader of the Opposition, and the Chairman of the Public Service also has to be appointed,” he asserted. Asked how soon these commissions, particularly the latter, could see becoming effective, he said that due process will also have to follow for those.Crime Chief Paul Williams recently expressed confidence in taking up the most senior job within the Guyana Police Force, saying that he is prepared and ready if given the chance to serve as the next Police Commissioner. Williams is said to be the top pick to take over the helm of the Force, with Assistant Commissioner Nigel Hoppie as his second in command.Williams was recently interviewed for the position along with: David Ramnarine, Clifton Hicken, Leslie James, Lyndon Alves, Marlon Chapman, Nigel Hoppie, and Maxine Graham.David Ramnarine has been acting in the capacity of the Top Cop for quite some time now, and there has been speculation that he may cop the title too.In November of 2017, when asked whether Williams was likely to take up the mantle, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who was then acting in the capacity of Public Security Minister, offered no direct reply.Harmon, however, had hinted at the possibility of a female assuming the position of Top Cop when he outlined that while there was a line of succession in the Guyana Police Force, female officers were also to be considered when deciding on a Police Commissioner.In so doing, he noted, “You don’t just look at the male ranks in the Police Force; we have female officers as well. And therefore if it is that a female officer is to be the person, then so be it.”Nevertheless, as mandated by the Constitution, the President would have consultations with the Opposition Leader on the names for the Top Cop position and the Deputy Commissioners of Police.last_img read more

Guyanese should take charge of oil audits – Gaskin

first_img…says foreign companies should not lead the processWith the recent announcement made by the Department of Energy to hire an overseas firm to assist with the auditing of the pre-contract costs for oil recovery, outspoken economist and social commentator, Ramon Gaskin, has said although Guyana lacks the capacity, no overseas company should be allowed to take full charge of this audit.Economist Ramon GaskinGaskin’s argument is premised on the fact that only Guyanese will have Guyana’s interest at heart. He questioned whether there is any guarantee that an overseas firm, especially one that may have connections to oil companies operating here, will look out for Guyana’s interest.“I do not have any confidence in any overseas company to look out for the interest in Guyana,” he said, while recalling that a few years ago; a Canadian-based company was hired to look into the tax regime of the gold mining sector and did nothing for Guyana.“The only thing they came up with was to reduce the royalty of Omai, a Canadian company operating in Guyana. Therefore, I am saying, I have zero confidence. We have to have Guyanese to look out for Guyana’s interests. We cannot go to that route again,” he asserted.Gaskin, a former presidential advisor, believes nothing is wrong with hiring an overseas company to assist Guyanese in understanding the more complex issues in oil and gas, but he thinks Guyanese should remain in charge of the entire auditing process.He said, “Guyanese have to be in charge. We cannot put foreign people to audit the foreign people, they are all the same. We’ve had that experience before. We cannot go there again.”Head of the Department of Energy, Dr Mark Bynoe told sections of the media that the plan is to hire an overseas company that would assist both the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the Auditor General’s Office to conduct the audit of the pre-contract costs.The controversial US$460 million pre-contract costs that ExxonMobil has charged Guyana is yet to be audited. Finance Minister Winston Jordan is aware of the concerns that the sum is inflated and has noted that there is nothing much that could be done at this time.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has responded to a request for help to audit all costs to be recovered by ExxonMobil. GRA’s Commissioner General, Godfrey Statia said the IMF will be lending its expertise to audit the controversial pre-contract costs.Statia said the IMF and the World Bank would be training GRA officers in the areas of petroleum accounting, cost recovery audits and other tax-related matters. He said help would also be provided to develop a risk assessment strategy for the sector.It has been reported that the IMF and other institutions will be tasked with auditing, examining and verifying all available documentation and records necessary for charges and credits relating to the contractor’s activities under the Petroleum Agreement.This means all books of accounts, accounting entries; material records and inventories, vouchers, payrolls, invoices and any other documents, and correspondence will be requested and checked thoroughly.Chartered Accountant Christopher Ram had called for the US$460 million pre-contract costs to be audited. Based on his examination, he said the numbers were not adding up.Ram said ExxonMobil is represented by three companies as the contractor for the Stabroek Block – Esso, CNOOC, and Hess. Using the financial statements of Esso and CNOOC, the only ones which were publicly available, he pointed out a few important things.He highlighted for example, that the combined expenditure of Esso and CNOOC at December 31, 2015, was $26 billion with reported losses of $21 billion, giving a total of $47 billion. In United States dollars, using a $200 exchange rate, Ram said that gives a total US$245 million, well short of the $460 million that the Government accepted in the Agreement with ExxonMobil.To make up the total of US$460 million, Ram said Hess alone would have had to spend, in contract costs, some US$215 million or approximately $46 billion, which he opined would defy logic. Ram stressed that the only satisfactory and acceptable resolution of this matter is a special audit independently undertaken.last_img read more

Businessman charged for Tucville fatal shooting

first_img… to make court appearance on MondayPolice have instituted charges against Robert Benn of Lot 10 Perry Street, Tucville, Georgetown, who indiscriminately discharged his firearm, killing Colin Perriera and wounding Gailann Chacon in the process. The shooting incident took place on Tuesday evening as the woman drove the car onto the man’s bridge with the intention of turning. The businessman was in his yard at the time and allegedly thought that the occupants of the car had gone to commit a robbery and opened fire.Perriera was shot three times to the chest and abdomen while the woman was shot twice. She remains a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital in a stable but serious condition.However, after soliciting the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Police were given the green light to charge Benn for murder committed on the miner and the attempted murder of Chacon. At a press briefing on Friday, acting Police Commissioner, David Ramnarine described the incident as “murderous murder” as he iterated the manner in which the incident took place was unbelievable.“It disturbed me greatly… when I was reporting it, I said it was a murderous murder. I can’t understand how he made these levels of appreciation, so shallow… It is very disappointing indeed that a licensed firearm holder could discharge his firearm in those circumstances”, the acting top cop related.At that time, he told the media conference that the Police would have resorted to its legal options since the detention period of the suspect had expired. Nevertheless, now that charges are being instituted, there is no need to approach the high court to make an application for an extension. Twenty-four-year-old Colin Perriera of Lot 213 Barr Street, Kitty, Georgetown, was gunned down at about 21:00h in Perry Street, Tucville.It was reported that the shooter believed the heavily tinted motorcar was bandits and opened fire. After the shooting incident, Perriera managed to exit the car and ran to safety but the businessman kept discharging rounds at him.Perriera eventually collapsed in front of a house a short distance away. A teenager, who was standing where the man collapsed, explained that after the man dropped to the roadway, he called out for help and told them that someone else was also shot.“He said that he was shot so we called 911 but like after 20 minutes, a Police vehicle pull up and they take he to the hospital… he was still alive when the vehicle left but they pronounce he dead at the hospital”.According to the teen, while waiting for the Police, several persons went to the car where they saw the young lady lying in a pool of blood. She too was picked up and rushed to the hospital. The now dead man leaves to mourn his 2-year-old daughter, mother and siblings. (Bhisham Mohamed)last_img read more

I consider Barcelona one of the best teams in the world.”Conte also considers himself one of the best coaches in the world, referring to himself despite a recent 4-1 drubbing at Watford as “a winner.”He does so with some justification.In a glittering coaching career, Conte made Juventus title winners again with three consecutive Serie A titles after a five-year drought.He also surpassed expectations by leading an Italy side short on star names to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, and delivered the Premier League in his debut season at Chelsea.However, a second season slump at the Bridge and his fractious relationship with the club’s hierarchy means most believe the Italian won’t last at Chelsea beyond the end of the season at the latest.Whether it is to convince Roman Abramovich and close aid Marina Granovskaia he should remain in charge next season or to attract the attention of Europe’s other giants who may be looking for a coach come the summer, Conte needs Champions League nights to remember.His two years in the competition at Juventus ended in a 4-0 quarter-final aggregate thrashing from Bayern Munich and an embarrassing group stage exit behind Galatasaray.Conte complained then it was impossible for Italian sides to compete at the latter stages of the Champions League.It didn’t help his case then that his successor Massimiliano Allegri then led Juve to two Champions League finals in three seasons.– Conte’s money complaints –There have been similarities between Conte’s final days at Juventus and many of his public outbursts against the Chelsea ownership this season over his lack of input over recruitment and how much is spent.“I think I’m a bit of a disaster to convince the club to buy the players,” Conte said last week.“I have to speak more with the managers who are very, very good to persuade their clubs to spend money and buy top players.”Conte may then welcome his meeting with the more softly-spoken Ernesto Valverde this week.Barcelona’s coach Ernesto Valverde’s calm has restored stability to a club that badly needed a steady hand after a tumultuous summer © AFP/File / Josep LAGOIn Valverde’s eight-month spell in charge, Barca have smashed their club record transfer fee twice for Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho.Yet, it is in a very different way that Conte may be able to learn from Valverde as neither Dembele or Coutinho have made much impact on Barca opening up a seven-point La Liga lead and booking their place in the Copa del Rey final.Instead, Valverde has made the best of what he inherited to turn Barca from the depths of a pre-season crisis into potential treble winners.Neymar’s decision to walk out on the club for a world record 222 million euros to Paris Saint-Germain was a huge loss that Valverde has used as an opportunity to reconstruct a more solid side that maintains the firepower of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in attack.A change from Barca’s traditional 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 has seen them concede just once in their six Champions League games to date, and 11 times in 24 La Liga outings.Meanwhile, the space left unoccupied by Neymar has unleashed left-back Jordi Alba as an attacking threat.Alba was on target as Barca equalled a club record by avoiding defeat for a 31st straight La Liga game in a 2-0 win at Eibar on Saturday.Most of all, Valverde’s calm has restored stability to a club that badly needed a steady hand after a tumultuous summer.That may be the lesson Conte and Chelsea can learn from most of all before careering towards another messy divorce at the end of the season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte considers himself one of the best coaches in the world © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 19 – Barcelona’s visit to Chelsea on Tuesday gives Antonio Conte the perfect opportunity to reaffirm his stature as one of Europe’s greatest coaches.“To play against Barcelona is a great challenge for us,” Conte said after easing the pressure on his job with back-to-back home wins over West Brom and Hull in the past week.last_img read more

Man City eye £18m Brazil star, plus Pogba, De Bryune and Sterling transfer latest

first_imgManchester City have been slow off the mark this summer.Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak claimed City will make some “high quality” signings this summer in order to avoid a repeat of last season’s disappointing, trophy-less campaign.However, the Citizens are yet to make a signing although Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling remains a prime target with the Reds rejecting an offer in the region of £40million.But who else is on Manuel Pellegrini’s shopping list? And which title winner could be on his way out before the start of the new season?Click the arrow above, right, to see all of the latest Manchester City transfer rumours 6 Fabinho – Blues to beat Man United to Brazilian defender? Click the arrow above, right, to see all of the latest Man City transfer rumours – City are weighing up a move for Monaco right-back Fabinho. The 21-year-old was part of Dunga’s Brazil squad for Copa America although failed to make an appearance in Chile. The club have been monitoring the defender closely in recent weeks, with director Txiki Begiristain driving the Premier League club’s interest in the Brazilian, though Monaco are determined to hold out for a figure in the region of £18million. 6 Paul Pogba – Man City to lose out to Barcelona for the Frenchman? Click the arrow above, right, to see more City transfer rumours – Juventus and Barcelona representatives met over dinner to discuss Paul Pogba, according to reports in Italy. Barca believe they are favourites to land the midfielder due to the club’s relationship with his agent Mino Raiola. The Italian club are said to want around £71m for the French midfielder and Barca presidential candidate Joan Laporta thinks the Catalan club are in pole position, ahead of City. He said: “We feel that the key to a potential signing of Pogba is Mino Raiola, with whom we get on with very well, both Abidal and myself.” City will have something to say about that! 6 Edin Dzeko – The Bosnian made just 12 Premier League starts last season – Blues striker Edin Dzeko has reportedly agreed terms with Italian giants Roma. The Bosnian has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium all summer after a disappointing 2014/15 campaign and Wilfried Bony’s arrival in January. Sky Sports Italia say the 29-year-old has agreed a five-year deal worth £3.2m a season plus add-ons, but Roma are yet to agree a transfer fee with City. 6 6 Raheem Sterling – England star has been the subject of two bids from City – Click the arrow above, right, to see all of the latest Man City transfer rumours – Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City is a ‘done deal’ according to a former Liverpool manager. The Blues have had two offers for the Anfield attacker rejected, with the second amounting to £40m – £35m plus £5m in add-ons – though the Merseyside club are said to want £50m. But Roy Evans, who managed Liverpool between 1994 and 1998, reckons a deal is as good as completed. He reckons Liverpool’s huge spending in recent weeks means the departure of Sterling is inevitable. Kevin De Bruyne – Wolfsburg set to offer former Chelsea man new deal? Click the arrow above, right, to see all of the latest Man City transfer rumours – The Belgium international, voted last season’s Bundesliga Player of the Year, is set to pen a new deal with Wolfsburg. The Germans’ director of sport, Klaus Allofs, said: “Kevin has a contract until 2019, so the signal has already been sent out. He will stay with us. We’ve said we will look at his contract. The aim is to take into account financially Kevin’s extraordinary development and I think we will reach an agreement here very quickly.” No doubt City will be watching with interest… 6 Stevan Jovetic – The Montenegro international has failed to establish himself in England – The agent of Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic is in Italy to discuss a transfer to Inter, according to papers in the Mediterranean. Former City boss Roberto Mancini is now the boss at Inter and he is set to host agent Fali Ramadani with a view to completing a deal this summer. The club are favourites to clinch the deal but Jovetic is still a popular man across Italy and AC Milan and Juventus are monitoring the situation.last_img read more

Shoppers urged to make one small change on Small Business Saturday

first_imgThis weekend marks the fourth year of Small Business Saturday, where customers are encouraged to shop local in the run up to Christmas.December 2nd is the day set aside this year by Retail Excellence Ireland to profile small businesses and encourage consumers to shop locally and support jobs and enterprises in their respective communities.The campaign comes at an important time when more customers are shopping online and doing cross-border shopping. Retail Excellence promotes the message that every €10 spent locally is worth €40 in terms of supported employment and support for local businesses. Deputy CEO of Retail Excellence Lorraine Higgins said, “It is important to recognise the massive impact small businesses have on our economy, both nationally and locally.“With 37,400 businesses and 282,000 Irish jobs dependent on the industry initiatives like Small Business Saturday are crucial to encourage consumers to shop local and support retailers in Ireland”.“This initiative is critically important at a time when two-thirds of consumer spend online is fulfilled by businesses operating outside Ireland and in the face of falling excise figures recorded by the Department of Finance which is largely indicative of an increase in cross border shopping”.“Consequentially, retailers are struggling to compete which is exacerbated by the sizeable differential in business costs and the VAT rate applicable between the U.K. and here. “With sterling consistently devaluing following Brexit, British businesses positive economies of scale and their competitive pricing it is clear the challenge to Irish retail is immense”.“That said, we want consumers to understand that their small change can make a big difference on Small Business Saturday in their local economy as €10 spent locally is worth €40 in terms of supported employment, supported communities and helping the business to continue to operate year round.“So, we would urge everyone to support those retailers operating in Ireland on December 2 and for the remainder of the festive shopping period”.Shoppers urged to make one small change on Small Business Saturday was last modified: December 1st, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:RETAIL EXCELLENCE IRELANDsmall business saturdaylast_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: There are only 44 days until Christmas.That may excite some of you.It may also leave some of you rolling your eyes. Bah Humbug to you!Whether you like it or not, with Christmas also comes Christmas party season.Whether you are a man or a woman, you will always want to look your best when you meet for the seasonal gathering with your work colleagues.I am going to outline a few strategies below that may help you to shed a few lbs and leave you ready for the big night out in December. These are example programmes; if you want a more structured training program you can contact me through the link at the bottom of the page.I would strongly recommend that you consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program.You should be in good physical condition and be able to participate in the exercise.These are 2 different training varieties that I use with my personal training clients and I have found them to be very effective at shedding unwanted lbs.This is a beginner to intermediate training option. METABOLIC RESISTANCE TRAININGI liked M.R.T so much that I started a class of it when I worked for a leisure centre in Letterkenny.M.R.T is a form of circuit training where you will be training 3-4 of the major muscles together with little rest in between them.In my classes I used to do the exercises for time, but with clients I use reps so I can maximise their strength gains along with their fat burning. The way this will work is you will choose a weight that you can lift for each exercise between 12-15 times (reps). 
After your first exercise you will take between 15-20 seconds to change to the next exercise and then do the same for the last exercise.Once you have all 3 exercises completed you will rest for 60 seconds and then repeat for 2-3 more rounds.A1) Goblet squat 12-15 reps
A2) Dumbbell bent over row 12-15 reps
A3) Dumbbell Incline chest press 12-15 repsYou can put any 3-4 exercises together to make up an M.R.T workout, but try and choose exercises that work the larger muscle groups as this will maximise your calorie burn.This is an intermediate to advanced training option.DENSITY TRAININGI love Density training.
My clients, not so much! (They do really…)There are differing types of density training, but I will be showing you a timed version.The type that I like to use and that I will outline here is a 3 exercise mini circuit.You are going to select a weight that you could do for 10-12 reps for each exercise.You will only be doing between 4-6 reps on each exercise with these weights due to the time period and to prevent fatigue setting in too quickly.Set a timer for 6 mins, (that’s right, 6 mins) you will transition smoothly between each exercise with little to no rest until the 6 mins is up.A1) Dumbbell Reverse Lunge 4-6 reps
A2) Barbell Row 4-6 reps
A3) Dumbbell Chest Press 4-6repsOnce you have completed the full 6 mins, rest for 3-5 mins, increase the weight of each exercise by 10% and repeat for an additional 6 mins.This type of training is really taxing on the body, preferably you would have some training experience before attempting Density training, but it is a simple but effective method for burning fat quickly.Again, you can put any 2-3 exercises together to make up a Density Training session, as with the M.R.T training, try and choose exercises that will tax the larger muscles to maximise your calorie burn.These are two options that when used with the right nutrition plan can get you really great results and leave you looking great at the Christmas party.If you have any questions on either of these types of training or you would like a personalised training or nutrition plan for yourself drop me a comment through the link below.#TrainSmarthttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS was last modified: November 9th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CHristmasemmet rushefitness columnlast_img read more

Commission approves redesign plan for Coliseum

first_imgLOS ANGELES — The city’s Cultural Heritage Commission unanimously approved redesign plans for the Coliseum on Wednesday, clearing one of the few remaining legislative hurdles for stadium officials bidding to bring the NFL back to Los Angeles. The plans, presented by architects Ron Turner and Bruce Judd, call for the 82-year-old stadium to be turned into a three-decked, 68,000-seat modern facility while preserving much of the exterior walls and the distinctive peristyle end. “I think it’s great — go for it,” commission president Mary Klaus-Martin told Turner, Judd and Coliseum general manager Pat Lynch after the 6-0 vote. “The facade, the bowl, the peristyle — it’s all there. With downtown sprawling the way it is, this is the next hot spot.” The commission’s approval clears the way for Coliseum officials to receive a construction permit from the city, which would be the governing agency for the renovation, and allows the architects to bring in engineers. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The NFL still has some design concerns — such as signage modifications — but Judd assured the panel that he couldn’t think of anything that would give them pause. The hearing was of enough interest to the NFL that its environmental law and stadium construction consultants were dispatched. “It’s a positive development, but we still have a fair amount of work to do in negotiating a (lease) agreement,” NFL executive Neil Glat said by phone from New York. While NFL owners are not expected to make a decision on a stadium site — the Coliseum and Anaheim are the two current options — until perhaps next March, Glat is scheduled to present them with an update on Los Angeles next week at an owners’ meeting in Kansas City. While the NFL and the Coliseum are still negotiating a lease agreement, as is Anaheim, it’s been a productive last month for the Coliseum. In addition to Wednesday, officials have won state and then city approval for a redevelopment bill that would set aside at least $20 million in tax increments for housing and infrastructure improvements around Exposition Park, and also had no opposition to a Plan Amendment, which allowed for the additional height of the new structure. “This shows the NFL that, whatever their timetable is, we’re not a liability,” said city councilman Bernard Parks, who plans to attend the meeting in Kansas City. “If the NFL wanted to put a shovel in the ground, we’re ready to pull permits and get rolling.” center_img – ALAMEDA — — Randy Moss is unlikely to play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills after being listed as doubtful in Wednesday’s injury report. Moss attended the Oakland Raiders’ walk-through Wednesday morning but the receiver was still nursing bruised ribs, a strained groin and a bruised pelvic area after getting hurt in a hard fall while trying to make a leaping catch late in the first quarter of last Sunday’s 27-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers. “If he’s not in, the thing rolls on. But hopefully we’ll have him,” quarterback Kerry Collins said. “With Randy, we have our plays every week where we try to get him the ball. I don’t know if it will change too much. I think whoever steps in for him will do a good job.” No Moss would come as happy news to the Bills, who have given up their share of big plays to him in two career meetings when he was with Minnesota. Moss went over 100 yards receiving and had a touchdown catch in each, finishing with 221 yards total and two TDs in two games. – TAMPA, Fla. — — Tampa Bay quarterback Brian Griese will miss the rest of the season after tearing ligaments in his left knee. Griese was injured during the second quarter of Sunday’s 27-13 victory over Miami, and just before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline the Bucs acquired Tim Rattay as a backup for Chris Simms and Luke McCown. – CHARLOTTE, N.C. — — Aden Durde, a practice squad player with the Carolina Panthers, left the team Wednesday after the NFL cited him for violating the league’s steroid policy. Durde, a linebacker, was assigned to the Panthers through the NFL International Development Practice Squad program. He said in a statement that the league told him he tested positive for nandrolone on August 1 during a routine preseason drug test. – TEMPE, Ariz. — — Cardinals coach Dennis Green has decided who will start at quarterback against Tennessee, but won’t make his choice public until shortly before Sunday’s kickoff. Green said he told the team who the quarterback will be, but those sampled Wednesday weren’t about to break the code of secrecy. – INDIANAPOLIS — — Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison still intend to split the ball from their record-breaking touchdown pass Monday night, but it may not entirely be their decision. The duo decided after the 6-yard TD pass that gave Manning and Harrison their 86th touchdown together — one more than San Francisco’s Steve Young and Jerry Rice — they would each keep half the ball. By Wednesday, no cuts had been made and Manning intimated the Hall of Fame might want it. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Google Glass vs. Apple iWatch: How Do They Compare?

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology greg roberts Tags:#Apple#Google#Google Glass#iWatch What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Related Posts Guest author Greg Roberts is co-founder and chief designer of dSky9.com.In the upcoming battle of wearable computing, it’s Google Glass vs. iWatch. Google vs. Apple. Clash of the Titans.(See also Google Glass: What Do You Want To Know About Google’s Internet Eyewear?)These two companies attack the challenge of wearable computing from two completely different perspectives. Which one will dominate?Sure, the battle is a little lopsided in that Google Glass is a real product, albeit still for developers only, while iWatch remains only speculation. But let’s assume that both will be real products soon enough and look at their individual strengths and weaknesses.Face vs. WristIt all starts with physical location, or what real-estate the devices occupy on the user’s body:iWatch: The wrist is an easy target, as it has been the home of technological advancements from the beginning of the wristwatch era, c. 1920 and peaking during the digital watch revolution in the 1970s. Many people are used to wearing technology on their wrists.It is easy to imagine that by the time we see the iWatch 3gs, it specs will surpass even the best of today’s smartphones. But in all its glory, the iWatch is really just moving the tech from your pocket to your wrist, with a smaller display. Or, in a less ambitious scenario, the smartwatch is merely a satellite hub to your existing smartphone, showing filtered notifications as needed, with a limited touch surface with which to interact.Plus, you will still have to pull up your sleeve to see the display. (On the other hand, it’s not obtrusive when not in use.)Google Glass: Putting technology on your face is a much bigger cultural hurdle. For Glass to succeed, humans will need to get used to wearing a computer on their face – and to looking at and interacting with other people who have computers on their face.Google Glass, however, doesn’t just shift the location of the phone screen: instead it offers a completely new computing paradigm.The unique benefits of smartglass includeTrue hands-free computingLow-profile camera that records true first person PoV video/stillsHead tracking (it knows where you are looking)Private audio (via bone conduction)Private viewing of informationNone of these benefits can be realized with even the most most sophisticated smartwatch. In short, Google Glass affords a far more intimate connection to the infosphere than any other wearable tech, short of implants.(See also Why Google Glass Is Far More Important Than Any Smartwatch.)Importantly, Glass superimposes net information atop your natural view of the world. Users of smartphones and smartwatches find themselves sucked into screens, walling off the outside world. The Google Glass interface instead places a small, semi-transparent overlay seamlessly atop actual waking reality.That means Google Glass could dramatically reduce the time and effort required to retrieve information from your files or the Internet. While Google Glass is still a prototyple, a well-engineered smartglass could reduce many such tasks from more 12 seconds to less than 3 seconds.Big Time SavingsWhile saving 8 seconds may not seem like a lot, multiply it times the 100 or more times a day users typically accesses their smartphones, and it becomes massive. In fact, that aspect alone could potentially save users 13 minutes a day, or almost 80 hours a year. That’s two full weeks of work!It would also reduce muscular exertion for these processes: Compare getting a phone out of your pocket, pushing several buttons and then typing to simply tilting your head skyward and saying “OK Glass.“Results? Information is no longer at your fingertips, it’s closer than your fingertips. Information retrieval could become so fluid that it becomes ingrained into your very consciousness… ideally becoming a genuinely natural extension of our biological brains and thought processes.Google Glass Has A Long Way To GoAs it stands, Google Glass is a long way from delivering on that promise, but the potential benefits of a device that fully realizes the concepts Glass pioneers are truly revolutionary.Will those potential benefits outweigh the in-your-face social and fashion issue that might make people hesistant to wear Google Glass, especially in public?Maybe, especially if Google can successfully position the product as a coveted fashion item that transcends tech. If that happens, the iWatch will be nothing but an afterthought. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementlast_img read more

Furniture: All clear, says tribal department

first_imgA day after Leader of the Opposition Vijay Vadettiwar leveled allegations of irregularities in the purchase of furniture worth ₹325 crore, the Tribal Development Department on Thursday clarified that the entire process was conducted in a transparent manner, and that the Bombay High Court has approved proceeding with the supplies by dismissing objections to the buying procedure.“We have followed the State’s policy on purchase announced in December 2016. Legit tenders were issued and only the lowest bidder who would supply required furniture with the necessary specifications was given the tender. The entire process was run by issuing four different tenders on the Central government’s GeM (Government e-Marketplace) portal, without human interference,” said Dr. Kiran Kulkarni, Commissioner, Tribal Development Department.The clarification said the government was in receipt of directions from the National Human Rights Commission as well as the courts regarding lack of basic infrastructure such as desks, benches and tables in tribal ashram schools in the State.The department formed 125 squads comprising 400 officials and surveyed the requirements. A pre-tender meeting of suppliers was called in Pune in December 2018, following which four tenders for four tribal divisions were issued. “The suppliers will be sending furniture to 502 government tribal ashram schools and 491 government hostels. Many of these are in remote areas. The tender conditions included supply as well as maintenance for the next few years, because of which prices varied, and every decision was taken with consultation and approval from the Law and Judiciary Ddepartment,” said Dr. Kulkarni. The process is likely to be completed in the next three to four days, he said.last_img read more

UN Volunteers UN Mine Action Service launch new websites

At www.unvolunteers.org, the newly designed UNV site maintains its focus on news and information about volunteer programmes while highlighting the organization’s role as focal point for the International Year of Volunteers, IVY 2001. The new site helps would-be volunteers find information about opportunities in their home countries or abroad, either with UN Volunteers or with other organizations. It also features online volunteering, a facility managed by UNV on the Netaid.org web site.With stories of personal experiences and volunteer networking carried out during IYV 2001, the website encourages interaction between volunteers from all continents and all walks of life. As the volunteer arm of the UN system, UNV extends hands-on assistance for peace and development in nearly 150 countries by dispatching volunteers – two-thirds of them from developing countries – and promoting the ideals of volunteerism around the world. It was created by the UN General Assembly in 1970. Joining the global Internet network, the Mine Action Service – the UN’s response to the global landmine and unexploded ordnance problem – has launched a website at www.mineaction.org. The mine action work of the United Nations, which has been involved in humanitarian mine action activities since 1989, centres on five core components: mine clearance, mine awareness and risk reduction education, victim assistance, advocacy in support of a total ban on anti-personnel landmines, and stockpile destruction. read more

Sherwoods Spurs earn victory thanks to Adebayor brace

first_imgTIM SHERWOORD CLAIMED his first victory as interim Tottenham Hotspur coach as his side came from behind to win 3-2 at Southampton in the Premier League.Tottenham lost at home to West Ham United in the League Cup in mid-week, following the sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas, and Sherwood saw his side fall behind against Southampton to an early goal from Adam Lallana.Emmanuel Adebayor equalised for Spurs and a Jos Hooiveld own goal put the visitors in front, only for Rickie Lambert to draw Southampton level, but Adebayor struck again to seal the first win of the post-Villas-Boas era.Beaten 5-0 at home by Liverpool in their last league outing, Spurs move above Manchester United to seventh place in the table, three points below the top four, while Southampton remain ninth after a sixth successive game without victory.As he had done against West Ham, Sherwood made a bold team selection, with Adebayor partnering Roberto Soldado up front and Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Erik Lamela playing in midfield.Initially, Spurs struggled to get a foothold in the game, and the gaps in the visitors’ midfield were much in evidence as Lallana broke the deadlock in the 13th minute.Danny Fox’s pass found the England international in a pocket of space between Spurs’ defence and midfield, and he cleverly shifted the ball away from Vlad Chiriches before drilling home a low shot from outside the box.Sherwood watched the opening exchanges from a directors’ box high in the stands at St Mary’s, but having raced down to the pitch after Southampton went ahead, he saw Spurs level in the 25th minute.Adebayor’s pass to the left sent strike partner Soldado wider than he would have preferred, but he curled in a superb cross that the Togolese striker converted with an agile airborne volley from close range.Spurs went ahead nine minutes into the second half when Hooiveld inadvertently prodded Danny Rose’s low cross past goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, but Southampton equalised just six minutes later.Jack Cork’s incisive through ball found the excellent Lallana and he showed magnificent awareness to square the ball for Lambert, who had the simple task of rolling it into an empty net. Spurs needed only four minutes to restore their lead, however, with Adebayor sweeping home his second goal with his left foot after the hosts failed to clear Kyle Walker’s long throw-in.In Sunday’s other game, Everton manager Roberto Martinez visits former club Swansea City looking for a victory that will take his side into the top four.Liverpool deposed Arsenal as league leaders on Saturday with a 3-1 win at home to Cardiff City, while Manchester City moved up to second place by winning 4-2 at Fulham.Arsenal can return to the top of the table by beating Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Monday, but Jose Mourinho’s visitors will draw level on points with Liverpool if they prevail.Check out the winning goal:YouTube credit: SpidergatePlayRejuvenated Adebayor scores a double, celebrates with woeful dance routineRodgers eyes Man City scalp as Reds climb to top spotlast_img read more

Stephen Donnelly quits banking inquiry says Taoiseach stated that he will try

first_imgINDEPENDENT TD STEPHEN Donnelly is to withdraw from the Oireachtas banking inquiry saying that the Taoiseach has “explicitly stated that he will attempt to control the inquiry”.Writing in the Sunday Independent today, the Wicklow and East Carlow. TD today said that Enda Kenny told the Dáil on Tuesday that the reason he was seeking a Government majority on the committee was to ensure that:The Government could set the terms of reference, pass the final report, and ensure they would know what the members of the banking inquiry would do.The Government had lost its majority on the inquiry when two Labour Senators did not attend a crucial vote of the Seanad selection committee and Fianna Fáil’s Marc MacSharry was added to the committee instead.After trying and failing to remove MacSharry, the Government added two more Senators to ensure a 6-5 majority on the inquiry.Donnelly says that this demonstrated that the Government have sought to control an inquiry that was not theirs to influence.“First, the banking inquiry is, under law, an Oireachtas Inquiry, not a Cabinet Inquiry,” he wrote.In the Dáil on Thursday, Donnelly said he was considering withdrawing from the inquiry, he told RTÉ’s Marian Finucane Show this morning that he he took his final decision on Friday.He added that, although it was originally planned for a Government majority on the inquiry, the ”unintended composition of the Committee would have been trusted far more by the public than one with a Government majority.”Speaking on RTÉ alongside Donnelly, Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar said that “it was always the case the Oireachtas inquiry was intended to reflect the composition of the Oireachtas.“Essentially what happened is that Fianna Fáil had taken advantage of the situation and taken both of the seats. Imagine if that had happened the other way round,” he said.Read: Stephen Donnelly says he might quit the banking inquiry >Poll: Is the banking inquiry now irreparably damaged? >last_img read more

Japon deux réacteurs pourraient reprendre leur activité en avril

first_imgJapon : deux réacteurs pourraient reprendre leur activité en avrilSelon le journal japonais “Yomiuri”, deux réacteurs de la centrale nucléaire d’Ohi, dans l’ouest du Japon, pourraient redémarrer dès le mois d’avril. Il s’agirait des premiers réacteurs à fonctionner de nouveau depuis la catastrophe nucléaire de la centrale de Fukushima Daiichi.Les deux réacteurs nucléaires, concernés par cette remise en service, ont une capacité de 1.180 mégawatts et ont tous deux une vingtaine d’années. Ils devraient reprendre du service en avril prochain avec les 3 autres seuls réacteurs en fonctionnement sur les 54 réacteurs japonais. Cependant, le gouvernement reste prudent avec la population et l’opinion internationale. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Comme le souligne le journal “Yomiuri”, le ministre japonais du Commerce et de l’Industrie Yukio Edano a ainsi expliqué à des journalistes qu’aucune date n’avait encore été arrêtée définitivement pour la mise en état de marche des deux réacteurs. Les tests sismiques effectués dans la centrale nucléaire d’Ohi accueillant les deux réacteurs, ont montré qu’elle serait capable de résister à un tremblement de terre de magnitude 9. Mais certains chercheurs nippons ont reproché à l’Agence de sûreté nucléaire industrielle (Nisa), qui a conduit les tests, de prêcher pour le nucléaire.Hiromitsu Ino, professeur à l’Université de Tokyo, et Masashi Goto, ex-concepteur de centrales nucléaires, ont quant à eux mis en avant l’insuffisance de ces tests. D’après ces spécialistes, les tests ne simuleraient qu’une seule catastrophe à la fois et n’étudient pas la question de la possibilité d’une panne ou d’une erreur humaine.Le 7 février 2012 à 13:10 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Records: Devonte Hart’s actions leading up to fatal crash

first_imgWashington State Department of Social and Health Services documents obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive this week provide more details about Devonte Hart’s actions in the days leading up to his disappearance.Over a string of conversations, Devonte told someone who later contacted authorities — believed to be neighbor Dana DeKalb — that his parents were mean and not feeding him meals for days at a time. DeKalb asked if Devonte’s parents were abusing him, and he replied they did “sometimes.”He was apparently concerned about law enforcement getting involved and didn’t want he and his siblings to be split up. DeKalb asked why the children weren’t ever outside, and Devonte said his parents wanted to keep their children hidden. The documents also provide more details about Hannah Hart’s runaway attempt.DeKalb said Hannah jumped from her second-story window at 1:30 a.m. last year, rang her doorbell and ran into her house. Hannah was covered in weeds and blackberries and asked DeKalb to hide her. The girl said her parents were racist and had been abusing her.All eight of the Harts came over the next morning. Jennifer Hart said Hannah had two missing teeth after falling and knocking them out and that Hannah didn’t want new ones.last_img read more

London England – Reported by Elite Traveler the

first_imgLondon, England – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineWhen Bea Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, opened her first hotel in London in 1984 she believed outstanding personal service and great value should be the essence of every guest’s stay. Now, with generations of experience in hospitality, and having grown the collection to an impressive thirteen family-run luxury boutique hotels, Red Carnation is regarded as one of the world’s finest. With accolades including kudos from major travel publications to even a “Best Employer in Hospitality and Leisure” award at the 2009 Springboard Awards for Excellence, her secret ingredient for success is continued investment in her most prized asset – her people.Guest reviews often includes phrases such as “flawless service”, “extraordinary staff” and “top notch luxury”. And Red Carnation delivers over fifty different internal training programs, including the specially designed Management Trainee Programs, to ensure talented individuals receive the guidance and business acumen to fulfill their potential within hospitality and continue to deliver unforgettable guest experiences. Many of these programs are linked to internationally recognized qualifications and include extensive leadership and management initiatives.Staff remuneration through rewards is also a key ingredient. Individual and department incentives together with social events throughout the year are just some of the ways in which Red Carnation recognizes and rewards good performance whilst reinforcing strong family values. For example, over 700 staff are set to attend a glamorous Dinner Dance, at The Hilton Park Lane in London, 28th March 2010. Some 100 employees will be flown in from the overseas hotels, some from as far as South Africa, to celebrate the collection and the achievements of the team members. The evening will see over 130 staff recognized for their outstanding contributions as managers and employees over the past twelve months, as trainers, and as individuals who were willing to go way beyond their ordinary duties for the benefit of guests and other members of the team as well as honorary awards for length of service. Generous cash prizes, weekends away, trophies and certificates will mark the occasion for the winners. Above all, and most importantly however, it’s an opportunity for friends and colleagues to get together and have some fun.“When you work closely with people day in and day out you become a family, and that’s how I see our staff. Likewise, we’re creating a ‘home from home’ for our guests, and treat them as we would treasure family friends,” says Bea Tollman. “A true appreciation of people, those that work with us and those that stay with us, is at the heart of everything we do, as evinced by the extremely low staff turn-over. But it all starts with staff training, development, recognition and, ultimately, promotions from within. We’re totally dedicated to helping every individual fulfill his potential, because it’s the only way to deliver the ultimate guest experience. There are no short cuts or half measures.”www.redcarnation.comlast_img read more

I met a few people who were and their sentences were sometimes shorter than mine My crime was selling marijuana when I was 23 I was arrested in 2002 in Utah as a first-time non-violent offender for selling about $1000 worth of cannabis while carrying a gun I was shocked when I received a 55-year prison sentence in 2004 I knew that what I did was wrong and that I had to face the consequences of my actions but 55 years seemed more like a death sentence to me The judge who sentenced me felt the same way calling my punishment "cruel unjust and irrational" As I quickly learned his hands were tied by the system My charges carried several counts that came with "mandatory minimum" sentencesnon-negotiable rules dictating a specific prison term for specific crimes In my case I was subject to three separate mandatory minimum sentences that added up to over half a century I was a rap producer before I was locked up so music was my life But in jail you cant keep up with music Just listening to the radio the other day was a new experiencetheres a different sound a different feel and the things people are rapping about have completely changed My kids tell me Im like Captain America who was frozen after World War II and woke up in modern times For years my three kids Anthony (19) Jesse (17) and Meranda (13) were just faces on the other side of the glass or voices over the phone I was able to hug them only a few times during my incarceration I could only hope that my absence did not put my children at risk of falling down the same path I did I dont know what number of days months or years would have been the appropriate sentence for my crime However something seems wrong with how the determination was made If the goal is to help people learn a lesson and reenter society as better people then it seems the method of rigid extreme sentencing isnt working I was very lucky to have people fighting for me My familyespecially my sisteras well as individuals like Mark Osler Mark

have hope that theyll get out they often wonder why they should stay out of trouble or play by the rules I saw many people like this when I was in prison If the goal is to help them learn a lesson and reenter society as better people then something isnt working Our criminal justice system doesnt always teach lessonsit often ruins lives and destroys families Now that Im released I am fighting for the tens of thousands of people locked up longer than necessary due to mandatory minimums And I will fight as hard as my sister Lisa fought for me Human nature dictates that everyone makes mistakes I am responsible for the bad choices I made and deserved punishment However we have a system that excessively punishes thousands of people like me by locking us up andin essencethrowing away the key

old and weighs 230 poundsnot an especially large man In fact many serious competitive eaters appear to be relatively thin and healthy So how do they eat that many hot dogs and stay healthy And is it safe Not much research has been done about competitive eating But several doctors from the University of Pennsylvania did an experiment for a National Geographic special the results of which were published in the Journal of Roentgenology They wanted to find out what happened to competitive eaters stomachs so they compared two men: one champion eater and one non-competitive-eating manthe controlwho simply had a “healthy appetite” The men were asked to consume as many hot dogs as they could in 12 minutes The researchers noted that after eating the hot dogs the competitive eaters stomach "appeared as a massively distended food-filled sac occupying most of the upper abdomen" There was also "little or no gastric peristalsis" the squeezing motion that normally helps the stomach break down food Marc Levine one of the studys authors and a gastrointestinal radiologist the University of Pennsylvania said he was amazed by the amount of food that fit in the speed eaters stomach "This was not some inherent skill he had since he was a child" says Levine "For many months he would practice by eating larger and larger volumes of food … He was able to overcome the satiety reflex and once he did that the stomach overcame the peristalsis activity so it was able to accept an unlimited amount of food" The satiety reflex is what people experience when they eat enough food to trigger the neural pathways in the brain that tell the body it is full Its also what triggers people to vomit Major League Eatingthe world body that oversees all professional eating contestsplaces a high priority on safety according to MLE chair George Shea Emergency medical technicians are present at all official contests and there’s safety page on its website "We discourage anyone doing contests without emergency medical technicians" says George Shea chair of MLE "We keep the duration of the contest short Its in the sweet spot so theyre not stuffing their faces too much but not going too long" While Shea says he doesnt know of anyone whos ever choked during an official eating competition other competitive eating injuries have been recorded And while no one knows exactly how stretching their stomachs will affect competitive eaters years down the line Levine and his team predicted some scary consequences If the stomach stretches enough that it cant get back to its original size they predict this could potentially cause "intractable nausea and vomiting necessitating a partial or total gastrectomy to relieve their symptoms and restore their ability to eat" But at least

"If Iran cannot benefit from the (nuclear) deal then it’s practically impossible to stay in the accord” Rouhani was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying in a phone call with the French president The pact between Iran and world powers lifted international sanctions on Tehran In return Iran scaled back its nuclear activities increasing the time it would need to produce an atom bomb if it chose to do so a goal it denies having Since President Donald Trump withdrew the United States in May calling the accord flawed European signatories – France Britain and Germany – have been scrambling to ensure Iran retains enough economic benefits to persuade it not to pull out Macron’s office said he had told Rouhani in the same telephone call that France remained committed to the nuclear deal but Tehran needed to fully comply with its commitments "The President of the Republic recalled the will of France Britain Germany Russia and China to continue to implement the Vienna agreement in all its
