EPL: Man U move up to fifth with Burnley win

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Foxes attack Burnley EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Manchester United moved up to fifth place in the Premier League on Saturday after goals from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford gave them a 2-0 win at Burnley on Saturday, which leaves them just a point outside the Champions League places. Martial struck a minute before the break with a simple finish after Andreas Pereira had robbed Burnley defender Charlie Taylor and slipped the ball across to the French forward. United dominated possession in the first half with Burnley struggling to create any sort of openings and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would have been disappointed to only have a single goal advantage. Sean Dyche’s Burnley were more positive after the break and David de Gea had to pull off a fine save in the 68th minute to keep out a low drive from Phil Bardsley. But after a spell of late pressure from Burnley, United secured the win in stoppage time with Dan James breaking and finding Rashford, who rounded Nick Pope and slotted home.Tags: ANthony MartialBurnleyManchester UnitedMarcus RashfordOle Gunnar Solksjaerlast_img read more

Guyana finishes third in Caribbean senior squash championships

first_imgWith the women’s team finishing second, and the men’s team finishing third, the Championship title was once again beyond Guyana’s grasp as the team ended third overall among the countries taking part in the Caribbean Senior Squash Championships,which was played in Trinidad and Tobago.The team’s final placement can be considered creditable since one of its players,Sunil Seth,was carrying an injury.Guyana will be looking to capture all the titles next year in St.Vincent,which will next years championships.The Guyana women’s team was unable to defend their title despite wins by Caribbean junior champion Larissa Wiltshire and national champion Taylor Fernandes,which were not enough to keep Guyana from going under to Barbados in the women’s team finals on Saturday,moreso with the Bajan lineup including current ladies singles champion Meagan Best, and three-time ladies single champion Karen Meakins.Witshire took a hard-fought win against Lilanna White, defeating her 11/6, 11/5, 6/11, 11/8, while Fernandes was in for a win when she came up against Muffin Stollmeyer ,whom she overpowered in straight sets (11/6, 11/5, 11/6).But these were to be Guyana’s only wins in the five match clash. Ashley Khalil and Mary Fung-a-Fat were looking at some tough competition even before they hit the court, being pitted against Meakins and Best, respectively.Meakin’s, who earlier scored wins against Guyana’s Akeila Wiltshire and Mary Fung-a-Fat during the ladies singles,again prevailed 11/6, 11/7, 11/5 against Khalil. In the ladies singles, Best, who is also the reigning Caribbean junior girls’ under 15 champion, had shown just how superior she was when she took a come-from-behind victory against Meakins.So it was a tough time for Fung-a-Fat as she tried to take her opponent down. In the end Fung-a-Fat’s best was just not enough and the Bajan won the match 11/7,5/11,11/4,11/5.In the other game of the women’s team battle,Wiltshire lost 8/11, 4/11, 4/11 to Amanda Haywood, the current Caribbean junior girls’ under 17 champion.The men’s team fight for third place saw them facing a rematch against Cayman Islands, following their earlier pool match against the same team on Friday. Despite losing 3 – 2 against the team last Friday, this time around the Guyana men reversed the result, thanks in part to Nyron Joseph,who clinched a win against Alex Fraser, whom he had lost to on Friday.Joseph defeated Fraser 3 – 1 (11/7, 2/11, 11/5,11/8), while wins were also had by Jason Khalil and Kristian Jeffrey.The veterans team also concluded their participation in the competition on Saturday with a close 3-2 lost to the Cayman Islands. Winning for Guyana was Ramon Chan-A-Sue in the 40+ category and Alwyn Callendar in the 60+ category. They ended up placing fourth in their category.last_img read more

North London Rumbles for Arsenal, Spurs Derby

first_imgArsenal thrashed Spurs 4-2 on the back of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace. There were plenty of highlights from the match – Auba’s curling strike from the edge of the 18, Laca’s game-winning deflected effort while falling – but the most enjoyable came late on when Lucas Torreira lashed the ball into the back of the net for his first in an Arsenal jersey.The new season for Tottenham has been defined by highs and lows. To their credit, Spurs’ had a very successful transfer window which saw them bring in some elite players in the midfield in Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso while also prying the promising young Ryan Sessegnon away from Fulham.Despite the improvements, Mauricio Pochettino’s squad has continued a puzzling run of performances in the league that began late last season.After winning their home opener against Aston Villa, they drew Manchester City and then lost at home to Newcastle. Their four points has them three behind Arsenal and sitting 7th in the (albeit very early) table. Regardless, you can be assured that all of that will be thrown out of the window when Spurs take the short trip to the Emirates.Arsenal have a very real possibility of distancing themselves from the rest of the other teams chasing top four spots, and a victory today would put them five points clear of their rivals and in control of third place. A draw or a loss would further stoke the flames of discontent that had been only recently somewhat pacified.Tottenham may find inspiration in north London where they could not last week to Newcastle. Mesut Özil is available but it would be a surprise if he features in the starting lineup considering the likelihood of Unai Emery selecting Nicolas Pépé, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in an attempt to overpower Spurs.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur faceoff today at the Emirates Stadium with both points and pride at stake. In recent times, Tottenham have usurped the Gunners as the preeminent team in North London, reaching the Champions League final last season and regularly finishing top four place in the league.On the other hand, Arsenal have struggled to keep up with the pacesetters in the league with last week’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool showing just how far they still have to go to compete with the best.Today however presents Arsenal another chance to show their pedigree and top four potential with last year’s affair at the Emirates serving as motivation.last_img read more

Badgers halt losing streak with doubleheader sweep of Bison

first_imgThe Wisconsin softball team ended a seven-game home losing streak Monday afternoon with a doubleheader sweep over the North Dakota State Bison. The Badgers won the first game 7-0 and the second in a more exciting fashion, by a score of 5-3.This was the first meeting between the Badgers and the Bison in history as NDSU just this year joined the Division I ranks, playing as an independent. The match would prove to be disastrous for the Bison, however, and it would also be a record setting day for the Badgers.The Badgers made club history in the first game of the doubleheader, setting a school record for home runs in a game and tying records for home runs in an inning and consecutive home runs.Initially, it appeared as though NDSU pitcher Allison Bakke was going to roll after she retired the first four batters Wisconsin sent to the plate, but those thoughts were eradicated on a blast by designated hitter Anastasia Miller. After a walk by Joey Daniels, Miller took a pitch that was left up in the zone deep over the left field fence, leaving no doubt about it upon contact, and put the Badgers up 2-0 early.The Badgers then put up an offensive show in the third inning. With one out, shortstop Kris Zacher got things started with a triple to the right field gap, adding to her school record of 10 career triples. After a groundout by Sam Polito, freshman Katie Hnatyk sent a shot over the center field fence that put the Badgers up 4-0. Catcher Boo Gillette then teed off three pitches later, adding to the Wisconsin lead. Then, with Daniels on base, Miller went deep for the second time in the game — the Badgers’ fourth home run of the game.The second Miller home run set the school record for home runs in a game with four. Three other records were tied in the inning. The back-to-back shots by Hnatyk and Gillette tied a record for consecutive at-bats with home runs. The three-home run third inning tied the record for most home runs in an inning — set April 2 against Ohio State — and the two home runs by Miller tied the record for most home runs by a player in a single game, set by Ricci Robben earlier this season. “I was very happy with our offensive attack,” head coach Karen Gallagher said after the game. “They went up there aggressive, and they seemed really relaxed at the plate. I think it’s good to have some games like this where they’re feeling good and making good contact.”In the bottom of the fourth, Wisconsin threatened again with the deep ball, but a catch by NDSU centerfielder Grete Peterson robbed Zacher of her sixth home run of the season.While the Badgers piled up runs, the Bison kept knocking on the door against pitcher Katie Layne. While putting a runner on in each of the first four innings, the Bison continued to threaten, but they failed to capitalize. They threatened in the top of the fourth when NDSU loaded the bases with two outs, but Layne was able to strike out Ashley Leier to get out of the jam. Two innings later, the Bison once again loaded the bases, with just one out this time around, but Layne once again snaked her way out of trouble with the Badgers’ Big Ten-leading fifteenth double play of the season off the bat of Jennifer Morse. That would be the best the Bison could muster, and they would fall in the first game 7-0.Layne got the complete game shutout in the match, giving up only three hits on three walks and six strikeouts.The bats settled down early for the Badgers in the second match of the afternoon. Bison pitcher Bekki Rasmussen got to Wisconsin right from the start. She held UW hitless in the first three innings, and the Badgers were stymied.Shoddy defense by the Wisconsin fielders caught up with them in the fourth inning. An error in centerfield by Polito allowed NDSU leftfielder Lynnae Foshag to advance to second base after her leadoff base hit. A bunt by Bakke advanced Foshag to third, but Brock struck out Erin Troup for the second out of the inning. Aimee Enzler then hit a slow dribbler to Daniels at third base, who let the ball slip through her legs, allowing Foshag to break the scoreless tie.Wisconsin answered back in the bottom of the fourth inning with two runs by Zacher and Polito. The Badgers added three more runs in the bottom of the fifth, and the rout was on — that is until the top of the seventh inning. With the score 5-1, the Bison managed to score two runs on a couple of Badger errors, but with the bases loaded and two out, Brock forced Foshag to ground out to second base to preserve the victory.Despite the inconsistent defense, the Badger pitchers continue to have confidence in their fielders.“I struggled a little bit today with the zone, but it wasn’t because I didn’t think the people behind me were not going to do their jobs,” Layne said after her shutout. “I always have confidence in my defense, and I know Eden does, too.”last_img read more

Big Ten: Pressure time

first_imgAs November rolls in the pressure is on.With just three weeks remaining in the Big Ten season, the conference frontrunners –particularly No. 15 Michigan — feel the weight of the trap games ahead, as the rest of the conference feels the heat of trying to move up in the standings or gain a bowl game bid with that elusive sixth win.The situation at hand is a game between in-state rivals: Michigan versus Michigan State. “I think that pressure is something that young people in college football deal with every single week, whether you’re an undefeated football team right now playing, whether you’re looking for your sixth win or whether you’re trying to move in that direction such as Michigan is,” Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio said during Tuesday’s Big Ten Teleconference.Michigan State has the No. 3 scoring offense, third-leading rusher in Javon Ringer and top receiver in Devin Thomas. Despite all this, the Spartans are losers of two straight and sit at 1-4 in the Big Ten and 5-4 overall.“What we have to do is make sure our players stay together and we come out and continue to work throughout the week and be emotionally prepared Saturday,” Dantonio said.The problem for Michigan State has been its inability to come through in close games. As frustrating as it may be, Dantonio wants to make sure that his players don’t beat themselves.“We need to build up our young people, not tear them down, and we’ll continue to do that, and I think we’ll learn from these things,” Dantonio said. “And ultimately when we start to win these games, we’ll begin to believe that when it comes down to crunch time we’ll win it.”After missing the past two weeks and a combined five games this season due to injury, quarterback Chad Henne and running back Mike Hart are practicing again this week. Still, Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr won’t know until later in the week whether his two offensive stars will be available Saturday.In order to remain neck-and-neck in the battle with Ohio State for the Big Ten title, Michigan will likely need those two players healthy.Northwestern failed in its quest last week to secure a bowl bid, losing 35-17 against Purdue. After finishing 4-8, 2-6 Big Ten last season, the Wildcats are 5-4, 2-3 this season. Running back Tyrell Sutton returned last week for Northwestern. The Wildcats will need Sutton to play to his potential as they make a push for their first Bowl game in two years. “It was just great to get him back out there,” Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “He just adds some more fuel to our fire.”Northwestern will face an Iowa team which pulled off an overtime win over Michigan State last week to also remain in the hunt for a bowl berth with a 4-5 record.For three straight weeks, Indiana has tried and failed to win a sixth game. Given that the program hasn’t appeared in a bowl game since 1993, and it dedicated the season to the late Terry Hoeppner, people may think that the Hoosiers and quarterback Kellen Lewis are playing a little anxious right now. But that’s just not the case.“Just because we’ve gotten beat in the last couple of weeks, I don’t think it changed our kids,” Indiana head coach Bill Lynch said. “I think the reality of it is we’ve played three pretty good football teams and we didn’t play well enough to win.”So unlike Michigan State or some of the other teams on the brink, Indiana isn’t getting bogged down.“I don’t think it has been a case where our kids feel pressured in anyway,” Lynch added.Indiana will go out of conference this weekend to face Ball State.Adding more conference gamesA thought has come up in the conference of removing two nonconference games out of the regular season schedule and adding two more Big Ten games. This would allow each team to face the entire conference.“I think there’s the advantage that the Big Ten Championship would be determined on the field and it would impact your home schedule, and that’s really the reason for the 12th game anyway — trying to get an additional home game to generate revenue,” Carr said.While it certainly would help the top teams separate themselves from the middle of the pack, it would also affect BCS standings as each team would face a higher chance of picking up a loss along the way, so the odds are that the notion won’t come to fruitionlast_img read more

Women of Troy try to make streak last

first_imgAfter piling up nine consecutive victories, the No. 9 USC women’s soccer team will face its toughest test yet when they head north this weekend to take on No. 1 Stanford and No. 21 Cal.The showdowns in the Bay Area, with No. 3 UCLA also set to take on the Golden Bears and the Cardinal, could go a long way in deciding the eventual Pac-10 champion.Senior goalie Kristin Olsen, who has six shutouts in seven games, looks to be on top of her game against the Bay Area teams. – Katelynn Whitaker|Daily TrojanThe Women of Troy (10-3, 2-0) have recorded shutouts in six of their last seven games and have ridden strong defensive play and timely saves from senior goalkeeper Kristin Olsen to a tie atop the conference standings.“I think we’re getting comfortable with each other,” Olsen said. “At the beginning of the season we had a lot of people injured and a lot of people switching in and out of the positions. Now we have a good comfortable back four and we’re able to produce more opportunities for our forwards.”Olsen and the back four will have their hands full on Friday at 7 p.m. in Palo Alto, Calif., with the Cardinal’s dynamic attacking trio of forwards.Senior forward Kelley O’Hara, a three-time All Pac-10 player, leads the conference with 15 goals on the season, including a hat trick in the Cardinal’s 5-1 romp over Oregon last Sunday.Junior Christen Press is second in the Pac-10 with 12 goals and leads the conference with 10 assists while sophomore Lindsay Taylor, last year’s Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, has posted four goals and seven assists.Stanford boasts the nation’s most prolific offense, averaging 3.7 goals per game, and hasn’t been shut out all season.“I think it’s actually good for us,” junior midfielder Alyssa Dávila said of the test against Stanford. “We have nothing to lose so we can just go up there and play like we can.”USC will then take on Cal (8-3-1, 2-0) on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Berkeley.The Golden Bears got back on track last weekend with victories over Oregon and Oregon State, following a turbulent couple of weeks for the Cal women’s soccer program.After Cal lost 1-0 to Sacramento State at home on Oct. 2, the Golden Bears’ second consecutive loss to an unranked opponent, a reportedly frustrated Neil McGuire resigned as head coach indefinitely.His sudden announcement left Cal without its coach for their game two days later against Santa Clara, a contest they drew 1-1.McGuire returned to the team the next day, citing personal reasons and apologizing for his conduct.“I put myself ahead of our team,” McGuire said in a statement. “I need to be a better coach and mentor and will work towards this goal.”Last weekend’s two wins seem to have stabilized the situation and Cal looks to be a major player in the conference championship race.The Golden Bears are led by Alex Morgan, a junior forward that tops the team in both goals (10) and assists (4).Facing two ranked teams and riding a nine game winning streak, the hype surrounding the USC women’s soccer team is as intense as it’s been all season.“I don’t care about rankings…the streak, the record — to me that stuff is irrelevant,” USC coach Ali Khosroshahin said. “It’s just about improving. If we improve, the result will take care of itself.”last_img read more

Chelsea will have to pay £4m in compensation to take Lampard from Derby

first_imgLampard is Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer Sarri is closing in on a return to Italy with Juventus Sarri, who guided Chelsea to a third-place finish in the Premier League and a Europa League win, will complete a return to Italy after a single season in English football. Other managers have been linked with the role, but it is understood Lampard is now Chelsea’s top choice to replace the outgoing Italian.Massimiliano Allegri, who had been touted as a potential candidate for the role, announced on Thursday he is to take a year out of football after leaving Juventus.Lampard still has two years on his existing contract, and it is understood while he would find it impossible to turn Chelsea down if an offer is made to him, he is also very respectful of Derby’s fans and the club’s owner, Mel Morris, who gave him his first chance as a manager. Lampard spent 13 years in west London, winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League, and Champions League, becoming the club’s all-time top goalscorer in the process.Morris, who started his playing career at Chelsea, impressed as a youth coach at Stamford Bridge before leaving to join Lampard at Derby.Both have an acute understanding of the club’s youth setup and players who are out on loan, which could be vital given their impending transfer ban.Chelsea have appealed against their two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.If Chelsea appoint Lampard, he will be the first English manager to take charge of the club in 23 years. Source: Scenter_img Under the terms of his current deal, any club wishing to take him is required to pay £3.5m in compensation to Derby and that figure rises to £4m if the buying club is playing Champions League football, which Chelsea will be doing next season.With negotiations and legal discussions yet to start, it is thought it may still take a week or more before Lampard could be introduced as the new Chelsea manager.Lampard enjoyed an impressive debut season in management, leading Derby to the Championship play-off final where they lost 2-1 to Aston Villa.Chelsea are facing the prospect of a two-window transfer ban but would be appointing two figures with a deep understanding of the club should Lampard return alongside his Derby assistant Jody Morris. Derby will demand £4m in compensation if Chelsea are to take Frank Lampard as their new manager – though there is a clause in his contract which allows him to move, according to Sky Sports News.Chelsea are yet to make a formal approach, but Derby are bracing themselves for that to happen now an agreement has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to take over at Juventus.Sky in Italy understand that, while Chelsea and Juventus have agreed the details of Sarri’s move to Turin, he will not be confirmed until the Premier League club have finalised plans for his replacement, who they hope will be Lampard.

Chiellini to miss date with Suarez in Champions League Final

first_imgJuventus’s hopes of winning the Champions League suffered a devastating blow as key defender Giorgio Chiellini was ruled out with an injury.Chiellini had reportedly been struggling with a calf problem on Wednesday, but it was not initially thought to be serious. But on Thursday Juventus confirmed that a scan had revealed a first grade tear to the player’s soleus muscle in his left leg, which rules him out of contention for the match.The 30-year-old centre-back has been one of Juventus’s key players this season, with some suggesting he is the key to stopping Barcelona’s mighty strike force of Leo Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. Juventus were already a long shot before Chiellini’s injury, with bookmakers pricing them at 5-1 to win the match in 90 minutes and 12-5 to lift the trophy, against Barcelona at 13-20 and 4-11 respectively. But without the Italian international, Juventus’s hopes of winning the tournament – and with it, a historic treble – will lengthen further.WHO WILL REPLACE HIM?Chiellini’s place in the starting line-up will undoubtedly be taken by Andrea Barzagli, who has been in and out of the side since returning from a serious ankle injury just a few months ago. Since his return the 34-year-old Italy international has played a key role, either at the heart of a back-four or on the right of a back three, producing solid defensive performances in key matches including the Serie A-clinching victory away at Sampdoria at the beginning of May.Chiellini has made 44 appearances for the Turin giants this season scoring a single goal. –last_img read more

UCL Preview: PSG, Real Madrid set to entertain, Manchester clubs face tricky tests

first_imgParis Saint-Germain have won five games on the trot, and will certainly send out more pure attacking talent than anyone Real Madrid’s faced this season. Headlining their attack are household names Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, who have six goals apiece this season. Zlatan, 34 now, is not the physical specimen he once was, but the man still holds his unreal ability to find the net from nearly anywhere. Meanwhile Cavani has taken a dip of form following an electric start to the season, having not scored since September.PSG’s midfield is really where their magic happens. With Matuidi, Motta, and Verratti, PSG’s had no problems creating chances (6 per match) for their targetmen. But PSG, too, felt the undying wrath of the international break, with Matuidi, Verratti, Angel Di María, and keeper Kevin Trapp all nursing injuries. Though the severity and duration of their players’ injuries pales in comparison to Real’s. Trapp will miss the match for certain, and the rest of them should be ready to go.Where to even start with Real Madrid’s injuries?Gareth Bale has been ruled out with a thigh injury. Luka Modrić and Karim Benzema are hopeful to play against PSG, but one could argue it might be better to let them take their time. Modrić and Benz are vital to Real Madrid, and to rush them back from muscle and hamstring injuries, respectively, would be short-sighted. Pepe and James are unlikely to make the trip.Sergio Ramos seems to be ready to go, so yay. Juventus vs. Borussia Monchengladach is indeed a top-of-the-table vs. bottom-of-the-table situation. And, for all intents and purposes, if Juventus do win on Wednesday night, they will be sitting pretty atop the group with nine points — exactly what you want after three Champions League group stage games and two of the next three away from home.That sounds like a pretty good spot to be in, doesn’t it?Easier said than done, sure, but as we have come to know about this version of Juventus, they certainly look the part when playing against European competition. That might not always be the case in Serie A — although Sunday’s derby draw was a step in the right direction — but it’s been true in the Champions League. They got the job done on the road at Manchester City. They dispatched of Sevilla rather easily, and now we look for them to get three more points at home against the only club in the group yet to win a game.Manchester City have the opportunity to move into the top two in Champions League Group D when they welcome Sevilla to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening.City face the first of back-to-back Champions League fixtures against the La Liga side, but come into the game in excellent goalscoring form after hitting six past Newcastle and five past Bournemouth in their last two Premier League matches. Unai Emery’s Sevilla have failed to match the form that led to fifth place in La Liga last season, and currently have just nine points from their opening eight league games.Inconsistency has been their main concern, with impressive wins over Barcelona and Borussia Monchengladbach followed by disappointing performances against Celta Vigo and Eibar.On a sodden night in the Russian capital seven years ago, Rooney and his team-mates defeated Chelsea on penalties to clinch United’s third European Cup.The venue may be different – CSKA Moscow play in the Khimki Arena, not the Luzhniki Stadium – but the feeling of going back to Moscow remains the same for Rooney ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League Group B encounter. The 29-year-old, speaking to the English press aboard United’s chartered flight east, recalled that night in Moscow with a warm smile.“It was the highlight of my career,” the striker said. “It is a massive competition to play in, to win the trophy it’s obviously great memories.”The Champions League has brought Rooney pain in his career too, including last year when he had to watch it from the sidelines because of United’s failure to qualify under former manager David Moyes.“We want to get back to winning trophies, of course. That is why you play football – to try and be successful, certainly at this club,” Rooney said. “In the last few years we haven’t been good enough.“There has been a big change in the club over the last few years and it’s now starting to settle back down into a good rhythm with what the manager wants from us and we are improving. “If we keep going the way we are, keep improving the way we are, then we will have a good chance of being successful.”Meanwhile, CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev is hoping to avoid another “horrible” night against United.The last time United came up against CSKA was six years ago. United won 1-0 in the Russian capital, but in the opposing fixture CSKA came within a whisker of recording a historic win.CSKA established a 3-1 lead over the hosts, but Paul Scholes pulled one back and Antonio Valencia scored in the 92nd minute to snatch a draw for the Red Devils.

Lonzo Ball’s cleaned-up shot draws approval from Lakers brass

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error EL SEGUNDO — What can Lonzo Ball do to improve his shot? If you asked 10 different people, you’re likely to get 10 different answers.But it seems Ball went in search of his own answers to that question after shooting just 36 percent from the field last year, one of the worst guard efficiencies in the league. And watching Ball lately, the powers-that-be in the Lakers’ front office seem satisfied that he’s come a long way.“Man,” said Magic Johnson, pantomiming Ball’s adjustments Thursday afternoon, “it is beautiful.”Ball’s stroke has always been unconventional, and even in recently released team footage, it’s still odd-looking: The 20-year-old holds the ball further left than most right-handed shooters, and he flicks his wrist sideways from his set hand. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe new motion has traces of the old motion, but cleaned up: The Lakers like that he sets more to the center than he used to, and General Manager Rob Pelinka thinks the release is a little less clunky.Pelinka, who used to have shooting contests with former Michigan teammate and 3-point ace Glen Rice, admitted he has talked to Ball a lot about shooting. But he insisted the team hasn’t pushed him to make huge changes in mechanics, only to find a more consistent, fluid stroke.“I feel like you can boil it down to release, the spin on the ball and arch,” Pelinka said. “So I had many conversations with Zo of, just get those things right where you feel fluid about it. He would take things in. The way he’s shooting the ball looks a lot more fluid now.“Before he was the No. 2 overall pick back in 2017, Ball had a transcendent one-and-done year at UCLA, during which he shot 41 percent from 3-point range. The Lakers hope he finds the touch he once had as a prospect, which could help him play more off the ball – a necessary role since he’ll be sharing the court with playmakers LeBron James and Rajon Rondo next season. Pelinka said he thinks Ball could be valuable as a catch-and-shoot player in those instances, as long as the shot continues to improve.center_img Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.It’s not the only thing Ball has worked on, of course: Johnson cited Ball’s rapt attention for film study, including a handful of sessions with Magic himself. While he spent the summer recovering from knee surgery, he was often in the team’s weight room, watching his teammates play scrimmages on the court feet away. Johnson thinks the development of other young players, especially Kyle Kuzma, could be a motivating force for Ball.Johnson, the president of basketball operations, famously said last summer he expected Ball’s jersey to hang from the rafters one day. He was more tempered Thursday when evaluating the second-year point guard, but still confident.“I am excited for Lonzo,” he said, “and he is going to be fine.”OFF-CENTERMore than a few people have noticed the Lakers seem precariously thin close to the basket.While the team’s wing options are robust, the only center with significant NBA experience on the roster is JaVale McGee, a 10-year vet who averaged less than 10 minutes per game the past two seasons for the Golden State Warriors. While Croatian big man Ivica Zubac is also a traditional center, the roster structure has fueled speculation that other forwards (including LeBron James) might play more small-ball center.Johnson and Pelinka didn’t seem to sense a weakness: In an era when the “positionless” basketball the Warriors often play is a goal for many teams, a traditional big man takes on less importance, Johnson suggested.“You know the game has gone to (smaller play),” he said. “There’s not a true center playing backup, and we’ve got one of the best going to be there.”McGee, a long-limbed shot-blocker, hasn’t averaged double-digit points since 2012. But defensively, he’s expected to make a difference, and the Lakers think he’s gained character from his runs with the Warriors.Outside of McGee, Pelinka said the front office wanted to design the roster with “thrust”: a variety of players who could attack and pounce the length of the court to pressure opponents. Just because the Lakers don’t have a ton of big man experience doesn’t mean they lack length. Pelinka also pointed out the team has seven players who are 6-foot-9 or taller (even though some of those players are guards).“As the game is moving to be more positionless, we really don’t talk about center or point guard,” he said. “It is a positionless game and we have a long roster with adequate size for sure.”ROSTER SPOT REMAINS OPENIt was notable that Pelinka said Thursday he feels the Lakers’ roster is especially deep from “one to 14.” Because there’s a 15th spot that so far is unfilled.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Expect that spot to remain empty for at least a little while longer. Even as training camp begins Tuesday, the Lakers want to keep a spot open. It could serve as spot help for a need identified in camp, Pelinka said, or if the team gets into a trade discussion, they could receive two players for one.The Lakers want to keep their options on the table.“We do want to have that flexibility, and we just want to keep it open because the team is so deep,” he said. “We don’t have any current needs right now.”last_img read more

Wellington opens district with 45-20 win over Rose Hill; Mulvane next

first_imgW- Kop 8 run (Jones PAT run). RH- Moore to Moore 28 yard pass (PAT no good) by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For the third consecutive year, the Wellington football team has won its district opener. Now getting that second district win seems to be the hard part.Wellington did what it had to do against winless Rose Hill, winning 45-20 and getting the 21-point padding needed in a four-team district where points always seem to be in play at the end of the season.The Crusaders will battle Mulvane in a game that will probably again determine Wellington’s playoff fate. Mulvane lost to Ulysses 34-31 after leading in the third quarter, 31-14.The one bit of bad news for Wellington was Remington Gilkey, who had five carries for 58 yards tonight, may be out for the season with an ACL tear.Overall, Wellington sealed victory by playing keep away from Rose Hill. The Dukes would accumulate 217 yards in the second half on 42 plays while holding the Rockets to 13 plays, most on their lone fourth quarter scoring drive.But once again, Wellington’s special teams were exposed. The Crusaders would allow another touchdown, including a 93 yard run by Ross Nolan that sparked a brief period in the second quarter in which the Rockets were kicking Wellington’s tail including a sudden successful passing game.At the half, Wellington was leading 22-13, but it was unclear which team was going to show up to start the third quarter. In the past two games, the Crusaders have gotten off to a tremendously bad start after intermission.This time though, the Crusaders were patient to start the second half and went on 14 play six-plus minute drive that was capped by a Chris Kop touchdown at the 5:47 mark. That would put the Dukes in front 30-13.“I have to hand it to our offensive line,” said Tyler Ryan, Wellington head football coach. “They really played an outstanding game and won this game for us.”After a three-and-out for the Rockets, Wellington would get rolling again and would score a few minutes later on an 8-yard run by Kop after another methodical clock-churning drive.Rose Hill would score two minutes later. But the Crusaders would finish things off with another long drive that was capped by Logan Jones scoring from the 2 with just 28.2 seconds to play.Wellington opened the game scoring three touchdowns to take a 22-0 lead. It was a deficit the Rockets could not overcome. But for awhile in the second quarter it sure seemed like it could. Rose Hill:Moore 10-7, Flannagan 5-30, Hollis 4-16, Wallis 1(-1). Total 20-54.

BOXING: Briton too good for Uganda’s Katende

first_imgBuatsi showed no nerves as he took the bout to his more experienced opponent, 31, and was in complete control from the first bell.The Ugandan did open up a few times, but when he did Buatsi blocked him, and as Katende tired Buatsi went in for the kill.Buatsi said he had been tempted by the Ghana offer because he was desperate to get to the Olympics.“I wanted to get there so badly, but I needed these four years to develop. Four years ago I was not the fighter I am today.”Reflecting on the life-changing move as a child from his birthplace Ghana to London aged just nine, he said: “My parents were living in Britain so I went there to join them. I feel like I have been living there my whole life and everything I have learnt has been from London.“The trade and talent I’ve got I learned in England and this is where it has brought me so it has been a really good thing.”Buatsi’s demolition job made it a perfect start of four wins in four for British boxing in Rio.“It is good to keep the ball rolling,” said Buatsi.The Ugandan also has his own intriguing story, having fought for Sweden at the last Olympics, before returning to his motherland.After the fight, he posted a message to his fans on facebook.“A big thank you to everyone for all the support I have got during and before the Olympics. Its been a tough road and we made it here, too bad the trip ends here, but we never give up. Now everything lies in Gods hands to see what happens when I came home. Thanks again.”UGANDA’S SCHEDULE PAGE 2 (click here to read key facts about Team Uganda)Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Great Britain’s Joshua Buatsi (L) fights Uganda’s Kennedy Katende during the Men’s Light Heavy (81kg) boxing match at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Riocentro – Pavilion 6 in Rio de Janeiro . AFP PHOTORio de Janeiro, Brazil | AFP and Agencies | A light heavyweight prospect who chose Britain over Ghana to pursue his Olympic dreams clocked the first knock-out of the Rio Games boxing after pulverising his outclassed opponent on Sunday.Joshua Buatsi, 23, who was born in the Ghanaian capital Accra, simply had too much quality for Kennedy Katende of Uganda, sending a powerful warning of intent to the rest of the weight class.Buatsi capped an imperious performance when the referee stopped the fight in the third and final round to save the stumbling Katende from more punishment and Buatsi won by technical knock-out.It left his opponent slumped in his corner on a stall after the one-sided bout, rubbing the back of his head, and he was later seen with an ice bag on the injury and a doctor in attendance.The level-headed Buatsi is not the most prominent member of a Team GB boxing squad rippling with talent, but his first tilt at Olympic gold got off to the perfect start.“I noticed he was hurt from a right hand but the referee didn’t step in so I just kept applying the pressure and when I landed another right hand I knew he was hurt,” said Buatsi.“I didn’t want to hurt him like that. I am in there to win, not to hurt people, so I am glad the referee stopped it,” added Buatsi.“I had the chance to represent Ghana at 2012 (Games in London) but I chose not to and to represent Britain.“My trainers are British and they taught me my trade and they said, ‘Josh, hang on, a better opportunity will come.’“Now I can stand here and testify that it was good for me to listen to them because this is where it has brought me.”Katende: A big thank you to everyone for all the support I have got during and before the Olympics. Its been a tough road and we made it here, too bad the trip ends here, but we never give up.Keep the ball rollinglast_img read more

Australian Open | Thiem knocks down Nadal and the one is at the mercy of Djokovic

first_img“It takes a bit of luck to win somebody like him,” he informed Jim Courier at the foot of the observe. The Cristiano Ronaldo of tennis, with an unlimited hitting energy and a multiplied pace after his pre-season coaching, of navy courtroom, in Miami, might with an earthly Nadal, who didn’t play badly but it surely was throughout most of the recreation in tow and When he dominated, he collided together with his adversary’s Herculean defenses. He goes in the quarter, with 840 factors much less as a result of final yr he fell in the penultimate spherical. Damage after a demanding begin to the season that adopted an finish of the earlier yr no much less demanding. With the feeling that he might have gone additional with somewhat extra fortune. He had by no means traced two units towards the arduous observe and this time couldn’t be both (0-13). The historical past of the second half was similar to that of the first. Rafa improved his providers, received two clean video games and that allowed him to subtract extra calmly. It got here in a breath of the Austrian pylon hammer, which helped with a double foul, and once more the Manacor was in command. Nonetheless, a penalty for delaying the service dropped him (“It is unimaginable that you simply ask me for a warning after the level now we have performed, you don’t like good tennis, you don’t like good tennis,” he informed the chair decide) . Then he complained that the bench’s chilly air tube didn’t work for him … In these video games he misplaced three straight video games and though he saved a set level when he went 6-5 down, in the second tiebreaker of the crash once more Thiem put earth in between and to the Crew Nadal field in DEFCON 2 scenario.Nadal performed to rebato and with caste he threw himself for an not possible.

Ultimate epic Dom had simply shot down a large.Outcomes of the males’s workforce of the Australian Open. The primary set was given by Nadal, though it is true that Thiem deserved it. The assault would have received him to the factors; it was higher, extra aggressive and intense, extra concerned in the observe, particularly at the starting of a frantic recreation, with lengthy exchanges, by which the Spaniard was not in a position to do the relaxation a bit till his third serve, after saving A break ball. Rafa tuned and the partial appeared his when with a masterful maneuver of modifications in heights and pace the first break was pointed and clean, buckled with an impressive globe.

Fear of injury on the return leg of football: risks and solutions

first_imgThe return to training is already here thanks to the de-escalation that the Government has launched. The restart of the competition, on the contrary, continues in the air, at the mercy of the evolution of the coronavirus pandemic and the pacts between clubs and soccer players. The agreements to work individually seem clear. However, there are differences with group training, with the way of doing the tests, with isolation plans in hotels or sports cities and with the solutions if they appear positive. Despite the fact that the CSD has approved a health protocol to gradually restore normality, the players do not have all of them with them and repeat that they will only abide by the Health orders. The reason supported by AFE to go with lead feet focuses on several points: the respect still infused by the data of deaths in Spain (164 yesterday), the fear of contagion or outbreaks, the fear of injury after so much inactivity and the dread over the new isolation, in the form of concentrations (“unconstitutional”, dixit), with the aim of being able to conclude this season. Clubs see it as widespread psychosis. Rather, experts point out that the state of alarm has led to a certain state of panic.AS has consulted five sports psychologists and psychologists working in the elite to shed some light on these concerns and uncertainty. What are the real risks for soccer players and what are the precautions that clubs must undertake. Despite the fact that the elaborated protocol does not include these professionals among the essential personnel to be with the players in person, many specialists are lending their help electronically. Rafael Mateos, researcher in Sports Psychology at the Autonomous University of Madrid, talks about the risk of injuries: “Injuries are a very complex phenomenon, as they are due to different causes. Among them, stress, which can increase the probability of suffering them. In this way, if they are subjected to stressful situations, such as prolonged confinement added to uncertainty about their future or exposure to possible contagion, it is highly likely that the number of injuries will increase. ” In fact, according to a study by the French footballers’ union, where the season has already been canceled, “three out of four players fear injury”, as “they will multiply by six from the second match”. For this reason, Mateos believes that clubs should carry out an exhaustive control of the stress level of each one of their players: “They have to do it using scientifically validated techniques and reduce said stress level in those players who need it during this time, with the In order to improve their coping with the situation and, therefore, minimize the risk of injury. All this under the supervision of a qualified sports psychologist ”.FIFpro, the international players union, notes that during confinement 18% of female players and 16% of professional players reported situations of stress and anxiety. There are other surveys that even point out the growth on symptoms of depression. So, David Peris, president of the Valencian Community Psychology Association, also points out stress monitoring as decisive: “It appears when we perceive a situation as threatening, before which we launch a series of psychological and physiological resources to deal with it. In principle it is adaptive, since it makes us better prepare for a complicated situation, but if we are not able to control it, it generates problems for us due to bad stress. One way to control it is to decrease the perception of threat: if I know what I can do and feel safe in this situation, stress does not appear or I control its responses, so that it does not harm me. The uncertainty that athletes may have regarding what will happen is key ”.Other dangersSeveral consulted professional club doctors support theories that the number of injuries will now skyrocket. As it happened in the NFL in 2011. Then there was a 14-week hiatus, due to a serious labor conflict, and the competition went from having five annual Achilles Tendon breaks, on average, to 12 in the first month back to work, of which 10 were in the first 12 days. “When athletes suffer a high level of stress, problems related to sleep, attention deficit, diet, training appear, there are memory difficulties, increased muscle tension, problems in decision-making and, among other things, increases the risk of injury “ David Peris assures. Alba Villamediana, another psychologist of reference in Spanish sports, considers the work carried out during these two months of confinement to be key. since, in addition, the preseason that begins now will be very peculiar, with a lot of individual training and without friendlies: “Whoever has known how to balance their emotions will benefit. The players who have been able to take advantage of this break as an opportunity will be the ones who will come out with the most resources on the field when this is over. That is, the players who previously stood out physically or technically can be left behind, and it will not always be the one with the best skills, but the one with the most attitude. Fear is an emotion that will accompany the players, like everyone else. And it’s not a bad thing: you just have to know how to collaborate with him and not fight him. Fear is a natural traveling companion and is there to protect players so that they do not exceed their demands, and that this can lead to injury. Coaches have a great responsibility: where to focus their players’ attention so that they cooperate, help each other and focus on daily improvement, until the desired performance can be achieved little by little. ”JESUS ​​SANCHO RODRIGUEZ (SANCHOFOTO) & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 17/18 Ricardo de la Vega, to the right of Seedorf, in his time as a sports psychologist at Deportivo.JESUS ​​SANCHO RODRIGUEZ (SANCHOFOTO) (DIARIO AS) That’s where Ricardo de la Vega is focused with the footballers he works with. The doctor in Psychology in the Autonomous, who went through Rayo, Deportivo and the Cameroon team, sees it like this: “Adaptation at the psychological level to the new situation seems necessary, since the head will play an equal or more important role than the physical. The conditional dimensions, the personality and the motivation will be key to achieve emotional stability, since the one who plays to try to win the League will not be the same as the one who plays to descend. To the general panorama, the soccer players will have to add an added stress and in many cases the frustration. And that there is no money or test that can remedy it. Players will have to adapt to the new scenario, which implies doing it on a cognitive, emotional and behavioral level. The risks would lie in the possible imbalances at these levels due to not optimally accepting and adapting. ” The footballer needs to work in a group and that cannot be achieved, in the best case scenario until June. One more problem to be solved: “Cohesion is essential to perform well individually and as a team. You have to make sense of pre-league confinement first. It must be worth the effort. ‘Why am I confined?’ Then goals should be set in phases, starting with the short term. I must feel that what I do contributes to improve my performance. And then the time must be optimized. It is not only the time of field training that matters. These aspects must be worked on, the leadership and emotional response of the team. ”Finally, Sandra Tabasco, sports and health psychologist, psychologist at PROAD (Sports Aid and Care Program) and CSD, talks about controlling expectations: “How it will affect two months of stoppage to athletes will depend on each individual case and the reality of each and his family. And that will influence how they face the return. Almost always that fear exists, this situation is totally new, it has not consisted of a vacation. We must be careful with the expectations that we generate ourselves and what we think the environment expects from us. You have to work on what depends on you, normalize fear and focus on small individual goals while looking for things that can give you security. It is difficult for them to stay focused exactly as before, it is necessary to be aware that differences can be seen since different thoughts will come into action, the possible fear of becoming infected, the separation from their families, living with uncertainty of what will happen. … Each athlete will be able to focus their attention more on the objectives based on the psychological resources available to them and their own health and that of their relatives. Coaches have a great challenge ahead, fostering and working with the person, not just with the player. Now more than ever it will be necessary to detect and reinforce the motivation and confidence of each one. The players must understand why they return to play and what depends on each one, bearing in mind that the mental and emotional level, apart from the physical one, will be key for the return ”.last_img read more

Sunshine Girl Griffiths the ‘silent killer’ ready for Netball World Cup

first_imgJamaica Sunshine Girls have two of the most talented and highly rated goal shooters on the planet in Romelda Aiken and Jhaniele Fowler-Reid. But no matter how excellent a team’s goal shooters are, they need players to complement them in order for the team to become successful.In goal attack Anna-Kay Griffiths, the Sunshine Girls have that player.Griffiths is expected to be the main supply line to the shooters, as well as provide backup shooting, but the Sunshine Girls, who has already played at the World Cup, is ready to play her part in the quest for gold Down Under.”I am very much ready, as ready as I can be. This year is different, the focus and the team bonding has helped us to gel together and it’s a beautiful feeling,” she told The Gleaner before the team’s departure on Thursday. “I am quite comfortable with the girls and I don’t have much to focus on more than to go out there and execute.”I gained some experience from my first World Cup, so my experience from the first one I will be applying it to this one,” she stated.Stronger, more confident”My game has improved a lot and I am stronger mentally and physically and I am more confident,” she added.The St Catherine Racers player, who took a two-year hiatus from international netball before returning to the squad last year, says, at first look, an opponent or spectator might underestimate her ability. However, she said, after seeing her on the court, one normally gets a total different impression, and she insists upon being ready to play her best in her supporting role to Aiken and Fowler-Reid.”I am a silent killer. People will look at me and say that I cannot do that, but when they see me do it they don’t believe. So I am a conservative person, but when I go out on the court I give it my best,” Griffiths remarked.”We have been training together and we have been doing a lot of passing (combination plays) in to Romelda and Jahniele and we seem to understand each other inside the circle, so that part of it is good.”The environment that we are in has been perfect, so that has been a plus for us. It’s for us to go out and execute. I am just focused and I know I will get the support from my coaches and my teammates, I’ve just got to go out and do my best,” she said.last_img read more

In Dimeh: A ‘Creek of Life’

first_imgDimeh, twenty minutes away from Duala, Monrovia, is small, but big in its own right. One can walk through the town in about fifteen minutes. However, a tour of the same town, through the lenses of history, cultural heritage and age-old tradition, could take the better part of two hours. No doubt, the town has fought hard to maintain its claim to fame over they years, in spite of not being officially recognized by any statutory power (i.e. Government of Liberia) as a ‘cultural destination’. Gradually, the town leadership, its people and friends of the town are working to ensure that Dimeh becomes a model of what a cultural destination should be. When you hear about Dimeh, usually in the same sentence one would hear the name, Bai T. Moore, Liberia’s late-great literary icon, who wrote many novels, the most famous of them, “Murder in the Cassava Patch. And then one might hear the name, Peter Ballah, another great practitioner ofLiberian culture, an actor, comedian and a protégé of the late Moore. Both are buried side by side, in majestically designed tombs atop a hill on the side of the town. But that is not all; there are certain amazing aspects of the town that render it somehow enchanted, which many do not know. One of them is a creek ‘that gives life,’ we are told. The creek and its secret go far back to when the town was founded more than a century ago (1898 or thereabout) and its ancestors built a strong tie with the creek. From the story narrated to LIB Life by Dimeh Town Chief Ansumana Varney and Jenneh Rogers, Chairlady of the Women of the town, the shallow, clear-water creek not only provides water for drinking and other domestic use, it posses a natural, aesthetic serenity. But what many do not know about the creek is the supernatural effect it is said to have in the town. It is believed that the creek answers prayers for people who want children, as well as many other heart-strung desires when the prayer is offered, without any ritual sacrifice. “Women from this town and other people from different areas visit the creek when they cannot give birth. It is our tradition and has been working for us from the days of our ancestors. You do not need to make any ritual sacrifice, but just offer a prayer,” Ma Jenneh Rogers said.Narrating her personal experience, Ma Jenneh, who is also a niece of the late Bai T. Moore, noted that when she got married it was difficult for her to give birth, but her parents took her to the creek and offered prayers she was able to conceive. “My first child I had was from the creek and she is now living abroad. My daughter now works as a doctor and I’m very grateful to the creek,” she said.LIB Life asked Ma Jenneh if there was another side to the creek apart from giving life and granting the heart’s desires. Her reply was a very encouraging, “Yes, there is!” “This one may be hard to believe but it happened for real. When the Charles Taylor war drove us from this town, we ran away into the bush and left our property. The spirit came from the creek and drove the rebels from the town. “After the town had been cleared, there was a medicine man who came from Buutuo, Nimba County and met a boy alone in the town and asked the boy to inform the townspeople to return.“I was the first to return. That day, I met the medicine man and he told me that it was our ancestors had chased the rebels away and wanted us to return. “Before I returned to the bush to inform the others, I visited the creek and offered some prayer asking that the spirit should stop coming to town because we are coming back. Before I could take my leave, I drank the water, washed my face and bathed my grandson, who is now in England,” she added emphatically.Another side to this account is that no one is allowed to fish in the creek and even when washing, if a soap slips and falls between a split rock, nobody should dare put their hands in there to retrieve it.Joining us, Ansumana Varney, Town Chief of Dimeh, said it is the elderly people’s responsibility to take any one who wishes to go there and offer a word of prayer to the creek and the prayer will be answered, although “not immediately.”Moreover there is a rule: No one is allowed to place a baby on his or her back to carry it to the creek; otherwise, when that individual returns to the town the child will not live.Interestingly, as LIB Life moved about the creek, Town Chief Varney said if a man wishes to offer a prayer he will have to wash his face four times; for women, it is three times. “But remember it during the washing of the face that the prayer is offered.”“From the day we were born, we have been going by this tradition and no one can challenge it. It is very true,” Chief Varney added.According to him, during festivals there are special times for people to go to the creek to offer prayers. “However, when the women go to offer prayers, the men are not allowed there,” and vice versa. “If you challenge it, it will be your end.“I have seen it,” elder Varney said. “There was time when the women were in session and a few men from the town went to see, but they did not live after they returned.”Dimeh is a tiny town probably with 250 inhabitants, no store, a two-room school building and a women’s social and business club.Despite the perennial dry season in Liberia, the creek remains clean and clear and never runs dry. And no matter how blazing the sun is in the surrounding area, the creek remains cool.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Liverpool to monitor Salah knock

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Salah, pictured in November 2017, is the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goalsLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 31- Liverpool will assess a knock sustained by star played Mohamed Salah ahead of Monday’s New Years Day clash with Burnley.Salah scored both goals as the Reds came from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday, but the Egyptian was forced off on 83 minutes. Salah limped slightly as he left the pitch, and won’t be risked against the Clarets if he doesn’t recover sufficiently.Klopp said: “I don’t know in this moment exactly [what it is], but he was limping. That’s never a good sign, to be honest.“We have to see what his problem was. We will see what he can do for the next game.”On whether Salah will be able to maintain his current form all season, having scored his 22nd and 23rd goals for the season, against the Foxes, Klopp added: “Yes, he can keep that standard, for sure. He is still a young player, he can improve.“It’s not about scoring only, it’s about other situations as well. He’s so important for us. But he knows and I know that he couldn’t score if he didn’t have the fantastic support of all the other boys.”He added: “Yes, I think he can keep the standard but that’s normal, all the boys can keep the standard they have in the moment.“It’s not that it’s only a run. The boys show their quality. We did that already a few times, the thing is more to get the results.“That’s what we did tonight. To get this result, the most important thing was the defensive performance, so I’m really happy about the concentration level in all defending moments.“It only showed the desire of the boys to turn this game. I was not happy about the yellow cards but the reaction was cool. It was a good team performance tonight.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CSKA Moscow stun Real Madrid at the Bernabeu

first_img0Shares0000CSKA Moscow stunned Real Madrid but still finished bottom of their Champions League groupPARIS, France, Dec 12 – CSKA Moscow stunned a much-changed Real Madrid with a 3-0 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, but still finished bottom of Champions League Group G as Viktoria Plzen beat Roma.The Russian side, who also downed Real 1-0 in the reverse fixture, had to better Plzen’s result to finish third and qualify for the Europa League. But Plzen edged out Roma 2-1 in the Czech Republic to render CSKA’s famous victory ultimately meaningless, despite inflicting the heaviest ever European home loss on the record 13-time champions.“It’s sad to say the least to beat Real Madrid, earn seven points, but finish bottom and get eliminated from Europe,” said CSKA coach Viktor Goncharenko.“But we only have ourselves to blame. In any case, we’ve made sure we’ll spend the holidays in a great mood after tonight’s win.”Holders Real had already progressed to the last 16 as group winners, with Roma through in second place.Home coach Santiago Solari boosted CSKA’s hopes before kick-off by making seven changes to the starting XI which beat Huesca 1-0 in La Liga at the weekend, leaving Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Toni Kroos on the bench.Real’s youngsters started brightly, with Vinicius Junior forcing visiting goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev into a fine-one handed save, and Marco Asensio then curling the ball against the crossbar.But Goncharenko’s CSKA claimed a shock lead in the 37th minute, as Fedor Chalov danced through the makeshift Madrid defence and bent a left-footed shot into the corner.Georgiy Schennikov volleyed home shortly before the interval after an excellent team move to leave Real facing an embarrassing loss.At half-time Solari sent on Bale, the two-goal hero of last season’s final triumph over Liverpool, with Kroos following soon after.But it was CSKA who extended their advantage, as Arnor Sigurdsson fired low past Thibaut Courtois in the Real goal with 17 minutes to play.It mattered little though, as Plzen secured a place in the Europa League last 32 thanks to Tomas Chory’s 72nd-minute winner against Roma.Midfielder Jan Kovarik tapped in to break the deadlock in the 62nd minute, only for Turkish youngster Cengiz Under to level for Roma midway through the second half.But Plzen extended their European campaign when Chory headed in after Kovarik’s volley was pushed out by Antonio Mirante.Teenage midfielder Luca Pellegrini was sent off in injury-time after picking up two bookings in quick succession, as Roma’s winless run in all competitions stretched to five games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Former Countrywide charged with insider trading

That same month, federal prosecutors disclosed he and two other former Countrywide executives had agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges of insider trading as part of a scheme that generated more than $100,000 in profits. All were vice presidents working in financial planning or portfolio management. Sentencing in the men’s criminal cases was expected in the coming weeks. The SEC filed civil insider trading charges against the other two men – Alan Cao and Jun Shi – last year. Both agreed to pay back gains from their Countrywide stock transactions plus fines. In plea agreements in the criminal case, Zhu, Cao and Shi admitted they got hold of confidential data showing Countrywide would not meet Wall Street analysts’ financial expectations for the third quarter of 2004. A former executive at mortgage lender Countrywide Financial Corp. of Calabasas was charged Monday with insider trading after he sold stock before the company announced negative earning results three years ago, regulators said. The Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint against Quan Zhu, 43, in Los Angeles federal court. Zhu has agreed to settle the charges, without admitting or denying the allegations, by paying nearly $109,000, officials said. Regulators say Zhu was tipped to nonpublic information about the company’s negative earning results in 2004. In the days before the quarter’s results were made public, he sold short the company’s stock and bought put options, betting that the stock price would fall. The transactions resulted in gains of more than $35,000 once the stock fell with the public announcement, officials said. last_img read more

Wilma slams Florida

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The insurance industry estimated insured losses in Florida at anywhere from $2 billion to $9 billion. Officials said it was the most damaging storm to hit the Fort Lauderdale area since 1950. The 21st storm of the 2005 season — and the eighth hurricane to hit Florida in 15 months –howled ashore around daybreak just south of Marco Island as a Category 3, cutting electricity to the entire Florida Keys. A tidal surge of up to 9 feet swamped parts of Key West in chest-high water, and U.S. 1, the only highway to the mainland, was flooded. “A bunch of us that are the old-time Key Westers are kind of waking up this morning, going, ‘Well, maybe I should have paid a little more attention,’ ” said restaurant owner Amy Culver-Aversa, among the 90 percent of Key West residents who chose to ignore the fourth mandatory evacuation order this year. As it moved across the state, Wilma weakened to a Category 2 with winds of 105 mph. But it was still powerful enough to flatten trees, flood streets, break water mains, knock down signs, turn debris into missiles and light up the sky with the blue-green flash of popping transformers. By early afternoon, Wilma had swirled out into the open Atlantic, back up to 115-mph Category 3 strength but on a course unlikely to have much effect on the East Coast. Forecasters said it would stay well offshore. Wilma brought 8 inches of rain to Miami-Dade County, nearly 6 1/2 to Naples and 3 to Fort Lauderdale. The flooding could well have been worse if the storm had lingered over the state instead of racing straight through, National Hurricane Center meteorologist Mark McInerney said. “There’s really no good scenario for a hurricane. Just a lesser of two evils,” he said. More than one-third of the state’s residents lost power. Florida Power & Light, the state’s biggest utility, said it could take weeks to restore electricity to everyone. The storm’s reach was so great that it blacked out homes and businesses as far north as Daytona Beach, an eight-hour drive north from Key West. Also, a tornado spun off by the storm damaged an apartment complex near Melbourne on the east coast, 200 miles from where Wilma came ashore. In Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Miami Beach, countless windows were blown out of high-rises. Along downtown Miami’s Brickell Avenue, broken glass from skyscrapers littered streets and sidewalks. Broken water mains in the Fort Lauderdale area prompted advisories to boil water, and a ruptured main in downtown Miami sprayed water 15 feet in the air. The Broward County Courthouse and the 14-story school board office complex looked like bombed-out buildings. All three of South Florida’s major airports — Miami International, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and Palm Beach — were closed at least until today. The Miami Police Department building lost some letters on its sign. “It was a wild and crazy night,” Lt. Bill Schwartz said. “This building, built in 1976, shook like it was 1876.” In Weston, near Fort Lauderdale, Kim DuBois sat in her darkened house with her two children and husband, with the only light coming from the battery-powered pumpkin lantern they bought for Halloween. “I could hear tiles coming off the roof,” she said. “There are trees on cars and flooding at the end of our street.” In the snowbird enclave Marco Island, where only about 3,000 of the 15,000 residents were believed to have stayed for the storm, the streets were littered with damaged street signs, roofing shingles, awnings and fences. The storm impressed even amateur hurricane chaser Josh Morgerman. A marketing executive from Los Angeles, Morgerman flew to Tampa on Saturday to meet the storm, left Naples as the eye passed and drove to Everglades City. “It was very serene and there were birds flying,” a wet and shivering Morgerman said. “And then when we got here and got out of the car, it was like a rocket went off.” A man in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Coral Springs died when a tree fell on him. A woman in rural Collier County died when her roof collapsed on her or a tree fell on her roof. In Palm Beach County, a man went to move his van and was killed when debris smashed him into the windshield. Also, an 83-year-old St. Johns County woman died in a weekend car crash while evacuating. A man in Collier County had a fatal heart attack while walking in the storm. An 82-year-old woman in Boynton Beach died after a sliding glass door in her living room fell on her as she looked out. Wilma also killed at least six people in Mexico and 13 others in Jamaica and Haiti as it made is way across the Caribbean. Wilma’s arrival in Florida came five days after it astounded forecasters with terrifying Category 5 winds of 175 mph. At one point, it was the most intense storm — as measured by internal barometric pressure –on record in the Atlantic basin. Wilma shared space in the Atlantic with Tropical Depression Alpha, which became the record-breaking 22nd named storm of the 2005 season. Alpha, which drenched Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Sunday, was not considered a threat to the United States. President Bush, bitterly criticized for a sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina, signed a disaster declaration for hurricane-damaged areas and promised swift action to help Wilma’s victims. The Federal Emergency Management Agency was prepared to send in dozens of military helicopters and 13.2 million ready-to-eat meals. “We have prepositioned food, medicine, communications equipment, urban search-and-rescue teams,” he said. “We will work closely with local and state authorities to respond to this hurricane.” National Guard units airlifted 12 patients from a Key West hospital, and other units were prepared to deliver food, water and other supplies to the Keys. For a change, lack of air conditioning was not an immediate concern in the aftermath of a hurricane. The strong cold front that pushed Wilma through Florida was expected to send the wind-chill factor into the 40s Tuesday morning.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Hurricane Wilma knifed through Florida with winds up to 125 mph Monday, shattering windows in skyscrapers, peeling away roofs and knocking out power to 6 million people, with still a month left to go in the busiest Atlantic storm season on record. At least six deaths were blamed on the hurricane in Florida, bringing the toll from the storm’s march through the tropics to 25. After a slow, weeklong journey that saw it pound Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula for two days, Wilma made a mercifully swift seven-hour dash across lower Florida, from its southwestern corner to heavily populated Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach on the Atlantic coast. “We have been huddled in the living room trying to stay away from the windows. It got pretty violent there for a while,” said 25-year-old Eddie Kenny, who was at his parents’ home in Plantation near Fort Lauderdale. “We have trees down all over the place and two fences have been totally demolished, crushed, gone.”last_img read more

Lands to be acquired as Burtonport Sewage Scheme moves forward

first_imgThe Burtonport Sewage Scheme has taken a step forward.County councillor Marie Therese Gallagher said the compulsory purchase of lands is a major development for the scheme.She said “Irish Water has today published a compulsory purchase order for lands required for the Burtonport Sewage Scheme. This scheme is an essential piece of infrastructure for the future development of Burtonport. “Today’s announcement is a step forward for this scheme and I would call on Irish Water to engage positively with the Community in Burtonport through this process.”“I will also be in contact with Donegal County Council to ensure that the proposed scheme allows connection for both Council housing estates in Burtonport “Áltan” and “An Choill” as tenants in both these estates have been left with waste water treatment system that do not function.”“I have continuously raised the need for a sewage scheme for Burtonport over the years, and will continue to do so until this essential piece of infrastructure is delivered.”Lands to be acquired as Burtonport Sewage Scheme moves forward was last modified: March 29th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

More Fossils Appear Abruptly

first_img(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Two more finds show spectacular stasis – the lack of evolution.Echinoderms:  A core from the North Sea shows fossils of echinoderms (a phylum including sea stars, sea urchins and sea cucumbers) doing just fine at an evolutionary date of 114 million years (early Cretaceous) – far earlier than previously supposed.  European scientists said, “the evidence points to an early Mesozoic or older colonization of deep-sea habitats by the modern fauna.”  This discovery causes another rethink: deep sea marine organisms are more resistant to presumed mass extinctions in the geological timeline than previously thought.  From the abstract of their paper in PLoS ONE:Our discovery provides the first key fossil evidence that a significant part of the modern deep-sea fauna is considerably older than previously assumed. As a consequence, most major paleoceanographic events had far less impact on the diversity of deep-sea faunas than has been implied. It also suggests that deep-sea biota are more resilient to extinction events than shallow-water forms, and that the unusual deep-sea environment, indeed, provides evolutionary stability which is very rarely punctuated on macroevolutionary time scales.  (Thuy B, Gale AS, Kroh A, Kucera M, Numberger-Thuy LD, et al. (2012) Ancient Origin of the Modern Deep-Sea Fauna. PLoS ONE 7(10): e46913. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0046913.)The summary on PhysOrg emphasized the problem for evolutionary theory by quoting the lead author Ben Thuy, who said, “We were amazed to see that a 114 million year old deep-sea assemblage was so strikingly similar to the modern equivalents.”  Watch the two instances of “than previously thought” in this quote:According to the authors, this evidence shows that the ancestors of modern deep-sea animals have lived in these deep waters for much longer than previously thought. That this collection of fossils appears to have survived several drastic changes in oceanic climates also suggests that deep-sea biodiversity may be more resilient than shallow-water life forms, and more resistant to extinction events than previously thought.Another Cambrian explosion problem:  Priapulids are strange worms that show almost no evolution since the Cambrian explosion.  Science Daily shows a picture of a modern, living priapulid along with an article that describes how they cause selective physical pain to evolutionists:He explained: “The fossils from the Cambrian period can cause a real headache for evolutionary biologists. Instinct tells us to expect simple organisms evolving over time to become increasingly more complex. However during the Cambrian period there was an apparent explosion of different major groups of animals, all appearing simultaneously in the fossil record. We looked at priapulid worms, which were among the first ever predators. What’s remarkable is that they had already evolved into a diverse array of forms — comparable to the morphological variety of their living cousins — when we first encounter them in the Cambrian fossil record. It’s precisely this apparent explosion of anatomical diversity that vexed Darwin and famously attracted the attention of Harvard biologist Stephen Jay Gould.”Casey Luskin commented on this discovery at Evolution News & Views.Here at Creation-Evolution Headlines, we frequently publicize findings that contradict Darwinian expectations.  Here is a prime example: evolutionary biologists themselves, along with their lapdog media, state clearly and without contradiction that these fossil finds were unexpected, were surprising, and cause headaches.  The second story especially shows absolutely no evolution in 530 million years! (see Casey Luskin’s comparison photographs at ENV).  Science Daily stated clearly that [evolutionary] “instinct” told them what to expect, but “different major groups of animals” appeared “simultaneously in the fossil record.”  This reality “vexed Darwin” and still causes a “real headache for evolutionary biologists” today, 153 years later, because the situation has gotten worse since Darwin barfed over it.  How much falsification do you need?  Our pages are loaded with 12 years of evidence like this.  We need to hold this evidence up in front of the Sean Carrolls and Eugenie Scotts of the Darwin Party Propaganda Machine and confront them with it, without letting them get away with sidestepping or bluffing or red herrings.  They expected x, but they got non-x and even anti-x.  It’s game over for Darwin.  Make them face up to it.last_img read more

46% of Web Users are Ready for HTML5

first_imgUpdate: as some our commenters pointed out below, we forgot to mention two things: 1) there is still some discussion over what the canonical codec for HTML5 video will be, and 2) some of the browsers that Chitika considers to be HTML5-compatible only support some aspects of the HTML5 specs. We should have made this clearer in the original report and regret this omission.Given that the HTML5 vs. Flash debate has gotten a lot of attention lately – thanks, in no small part to Steve Jobs’ declaration of war against Flash – it is good to see that so many users are already using HTML5-compatible browsers. While the market share for Internet Explorer continues to drop, Microsoft’s browser still accounts for about half of all Internet traffic. The next version of Internet Explorer will support HTML5, but given that Internet Explorer users are rather slow at updating their browsers, it will likely be a while before all of Microsoft’s users will run compatible browsers. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… HTML5 is quickly becoming an important part of the Web surfing experience, and according to online ad network Chitika, almost half of all Internet users are already using HTML5-compatible browsers. On Chitika’s network, Firefox (version 3.5 and higher) is the most popular of these HTML5-compatible browsers, followed by Chrome and Safari, with Opera coming in a distant fourth in this race. The league of HTML5-incompatible browsers is mostly comprised of different versions of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.Firefox 3.5+ makes up almost half of all HTML5-compatible traffic to Chitika’s networks, while Internet Explorer 8 accounts for half of all HTML5-incompatible traffic. To determine a browser’s HTML5 readiness, Chitika looked at the browser’s ability to render HTML5 video.center_img In this context, it is worth pointing out that – according to Adobe’s own data – Flash still holds a strong lead over HTML5, as it is installed on 99% of all Internet-enabled desktops. Flash Player 10, the latest version of Adobe’s Flash plugin, is now installed on 97% of all Internet-enabled computers in the U.S. and Canada. It is also worth noting that Google is one of the strongest backers of HTML5, but at the same time, the company also plans to ship Flash with every version of Chrome soon. According to Google, this is meant to ensure the best possible browsing experience for Chrome users.Image credit: Flickr user squidish.

Factual Aims, Credibly, to Become Wikipedia 2.0

first_imgTags:#Location#NYT#web We first wrote about Factual in September and I’ve been excited about it ever since. The company’s location data seems to be getting good reviews from data consumers, but there are clearly sets that need cleaning up, too.Have you spent any time on Factual? What’s your assessment of the site’s viability? The company has assembled a very strong team, but it’s in a crowded market, too. If it can build a community of human editors, business users willing to write-back changes to its data set and strong technology to do the bulk of the heavy lifting and judgement calls on credibility, we may find the web using Factual to describe the world much like users use Wikipedia today to discuss and learn about it. That would be an exciting platform. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… marshall kirkpatrick Imagine an online community that combines user contributions, editing and fact checking like Wikipedia, with automated data extraction like Google and complex artificial intelligence to create a rich description of the world around us that is continually refined over time. That’s what well-backed data startup Factual is aiming to create and every time I learn more about it, I fantasize about getting in and contributing to that community just like early contributors to Wikipedia did.While Wikipedia is a huge destination site, however, Factual is a data service that will be used as a platform by other sites that want to borrow the data it has captured and refined about places, people and things in the real world. Founder Gil Elbaz, one of the inventors of the technology that became Google’s advertising platform and the leader who raised money from red hot investors Andreesen Horowitz for Factual, did a fascinating interview with GPS Business News this morning where we learned more about the technology behind his site.Elbaz tells interviewer Ludovic Privat that any partner site or individual can submit a data set, a data point or an opinion about a data point.“So if you go to one of our tables and double click into a cell, you’ll find a rich history of opinions about what, for example, is the right phone number for a business. Then it’s our job to examine all these opinions and look for some sort of consensus or pattern that leads us to believe that one of them is right and one is wrong. “The job of cleaning this data, looking for spammy submissions, analyzing the sources or users that are submitting this data and then trying to boil it down into the right answer requires a lot of technology…It also comes from a sophisticated machine-learning stack that can leverage a significant proportion of the web and use various natural language technologies to structure unstructured or semi-structured data that’s on the web and pull facts from the web to validate them. “It is a living, breathing database in the sense that our partners and end-users can access our write-to API and correct things in the database in real-time and our developers have real-time access to these corrections.”Elbaz says the company is incentivizing partners to participate in the refinement of the data, including through a program where users of the data can opt-in to sharing any improvements they make back with Factual. The company announced partnerships with Facebook Places and the wildly popular social game MyTown by Booyah, earlier this month.

Veterans Will Get Training as Solar Installers

first_imgBeginning this fall, some veterans who are leaving active military duty will be able to get training at one or more military bases to become solar installers, the White House said.The effort is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Instruction Training Network, which hopes to train 50,000 installers of photovoltaic (PV) systems by 2020.SunShot already supports training centers around the country. The White House announcement wasn’t specific about where the veteran training would take place, but said SunShot would partner with as many as three military bases to create a pilot program for veterans this fall.“The new training project will connect up to 30 motivated, tech-savvy military personnel at each base with SunShot-supported accredited solar training institutions,” the announcement said. “Ultimately, lessons learned from this first successful pilot will enable the Energy Department and military branches to expand solar training access to interested veterans, tapping into the Department’s nearly 400 solar training partner institutions nationwide.”The announcement came in advance of the United Nations summit on climate change last month. Other initiatives in the absence of congressional action on climate change include a $70 million program by the Department of Agriculture to pay for 540 renewable energy projects in rural areas, and stricter efficiency standards for air conditioners, the Associated Press reports. Will there be a surplus of installers?Training will cover panel installation, connecting PV systems to the grid, and how to comply with local building codes. Solar installers Vivint Solar, SolarCity, and SunPower all have pledged to interview graduating military trainees for jobs, the White House said.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for a solar installer was $18.22 per hour, or $37,900 a year, in 2012.In 2012, there were jobs for 4,800 PV installers in the U.S. The field was expected to grow by 24 percent by 2022, more than twice as fast as the average for all occupations. But because the field is still relatively small, that would result in only 1,200 new jobs for installers over the 10-year period, the bureau said.It looks as if there would be many more trained installers than jobs. But one government official said the discrepancy might be explained by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ narrow definition of the position. Other solar jobs would be available in related areas, such as electricians or construction workers.The bureau also said the long-term outlook for job growth depends on government incentives and PV costs, among other things. A key incentive, the 30 percent federal income tax credit on solar and other renewable systems, is now scheduled to expire at the end of 2016.last_img read more

The Children Struggle Too!

first_imgWe all play a pivotal role in helping support our military children through the process of deployment. While a soldier’s job may be to fight for and protect our freedom it should never be at the cost of the well-being of his or her child. Become aware of and validate difficult feelings (guilt, resentment, anxiety, confusion, anger, or fear)Become more sensitive to their family structure and living arrangements (some children stay with grandparents- not parents)Acknowledge that children may sense of a loss of time with the deployed parentHelp children maintain a close distance relationship with the deployed parent (allow the child to make things for care packages, record voice notes, create cards and other small gifts online, play online games with the deployed parent, leave the deployed parent Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) messages, etc.)Encourage children to journal or write down feelings they are experiencingAbove all, listen to children. Sometimes children just need to talk without being pressured or judged by others. As every military family knows, deployment is a necessary part of the job. The enlisted service member has a responsibility to the branch of service to which they belong and their responsibilities are taken very seriously. But the family they leave behind is equally important.As a military families support professional, you recognize deployment as one of the most difficult times for families. And while there’s lots of information on how deployment affects the servicemembers and their spouses, what about the impact on their children left at home with one “solo parent” and one who is deployed?The Center for Military Health Policy Research did a recent study in an attempt to explore how deployment affects the academic, social, and emotional well-being of military children. The study looked at 1,500 children aged 11-17. All the children in the study had at least one parent in the military in that 57% had an Army parent, 20% had an Air Force parent, 17% had a Navy parent and the remainder of the parents were in the Coast Guard or Marine Corps.The results showed that children with a deployed parent reported:Increased levels of anxietyEmotional and behavioral difficultiesIncreased problem behaviors, (i.e., fighting)Greater difficulties in social and emotional functioningGreater school or peer-related difficultiesSo what can we do to support these children through one of the most difficult times of their lives?

Consultation Underway Into New Adult Guardianship Legislation

first_img FOR BROADCAST USE Nova Scotians are invited to help shape new legislation to better protect the rights of vulnerable people under adult guardianship orders. Under Nova Scotia’s previous legislation, capacity to make decisions was an all-or-nothing condition and didn’t recognize that individuals may be able to make their own decisions in many areas of their lives. The new legislation will protect the rights of all adults to autonomy and self-determination, set out the duties and responsibilities of guardians and establish safeguards for individuals who are under guardianship orders. A number of stakeholders will have input into helping modernize the legislation. The province will replace the previous legislation with a modern guardianship law in the spring of 2017. -30- Nova Scotians are invited to help shape new legislation to better protect the rights of vulnerable people under adult guardianship orders. “We all want to live in a province where the rights of every Nova Scotian are respected,” said Justice Minister Diana Whalen. “This consultation is an excellent opportunity to listen to and take advice from the public, stakeholders and families who want their loved ones to be safe while having the maximum freedom possible.” The consultation will involve face-to-face meetings and input through an online survey. The survey is available at http://novascotia.ca/adultguardianship/. The deadline for submitting comments is Nov. 30. A guardianship order is a court order that appoints a person to make decisions for someone who is not capable of making decisions on their own. Under Nova Scotia’s previous legislation, capacity to make decisions was an all-or-nothing condition and did not recognize that individuals may be able to make their own decisions in many areas of their lives. The province will replace the previous legislation with a modern guardianship law in the spring of 2017. The new legislation will protect the rights of all adults to autonomy and self-determination, set out the duties and responsibilities of guardians and establish safeguards for individuals who are under guardianship orders. Targeted consultations are taking place with key stakeholders from the health, social services and legal sectors, as well as seniors, the disabled community and families with loved ones under guardianship orders. The province is especially interested in hearing from individuals with family members under guardianship orders, both past and present. Families who wish to participate in a focus group can contact Allyson O’Shea at 902-424-6094 or by email at adultguardianship@novascotia.ca. The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia ruled last spring that certain provisions of the previous legislation infringed on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The court gave government one year to bring in updated legislation.last_img read more

Weakening growth prompted RBI Guv to go for 35 bps rate cut

first_imgMumbai: Weakening of domestic growth impulses prompted RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das to opt for an unconventional rate cut of 35 basis points to push economic activities early this month, said the central bank on Wednesday. Two of his RBI colleagues and an independent member in the rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) had also favoured a 35-basis point reduction, against the normal practice of 25 or 50 basis points change, in the third bi-monthly monetary policy of 2019-20. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe other two members, both independent, in the six-member MPC had voted for a 25-basis point cut in the policy announced on August 7. In an unusual move, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on August 7 had reduced the benchmark lending rate by 35 basis points to 5.40 per cent amid concerns over slowdown in economy. Before this, the RBI had reduced the rate thrice, each time by 25 basis points. “In view of weakening of domestic growth impulses and unsettled global macroeconomic environment, there is a need to bolster dwindling domestic demand and support investment activity, even as the impact of past three rate cuts is gradually working its way to the real economy,” said the governor, according to the minutes of the MPC released by the RBI on Wednesday. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe governor said that with headline inflation projected to remain within the target over the next one year, supporting domestic growth by further reducing interest rates needs to be given the utmost priority. Given the current and evolving inflation and growth scenario at this juncture, it can no longer be a business-as-usual approach, he added. “The economy needs a larger push. I am, therefore, of the view that a reduction in the policy repo rate by conventional 25 bps will be inadequate. On the other hand, a 50 bps rate cut might be excessive and indicate a knee-jerk reaction,” he said. According to the minutes, Das further said “hence, at times it is apposite” to calibrate the size of the conventional rate adjustment, and he voted for reducing the policy repo rate by 35 basis points and for continuing with the accommodative stance of monetary policy. MPC members Bibhu Prasad Kanungo (RBI Deputy Governor), Michael Debabrata Patra (RBI Executive Director) and Ravindra H Dholakia (independent member) also favoured a 35-basis point cut in repo rate. Chetan Ghate and Pami Dua voted for a 25-basis points reduction in the repo or the short-term lending rate. While the RBI has lowered the repo rate by 1.1 percentage points in 2019, the banks are yet to pass on the entire benefit of lower interest rate to borrowers. Governor Das recently asked all banks to link their interest rate with repo for faster transmission of the central bank’s policy actions.last_img read more

Pension advisory firms say Q4 stock plunge hurt definedbenefit plans

first_imgTORONTO — Two of Canada’s largest pension advisory firms say the financial health of defined benefit plans was eroded in the fourth quarter by a combination of weak stock markets and low long-term interest rates.Mercer Canada and Aon each concluded in separate reports Thursday that fewer than half of the country’s defined benefit pension plans were fully funded at the turn of the new year.Mercer Canada estimated that less than 30 per cent of Canadian defined pension plans were fully funded at the end of 2018, while Aon estimated 38.5 per cent of plans were fully funded as of Jan 1.The Mercer Pension Health Index — based on a hypothetical, model plan — dropped to a solvency ratio of 102 per cent at Dec. 31 from 112 per cent at Sept. 28 and from 106 per cent at the beginning of 2018.Meanwhile, the Aon Median Solvency Ratio fell in the fourth quarter to 95.3 per cent as of Jan. 1, 2019, a decline of nearly eight percentage points from the third quarter of 2018.A solvency ratio of 100 or more indicates a plan is fully funded while anything less indicates there would be some shortfall if a plan had to be wound up — often a worst-case scenario for defined benefit plans.David Paddon, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

IMF approves US 4150 million for Lanka

“The ongoing FSAP update is assessing potential vulnerabilities in the financial sector. The authorities should remain vigilant for systemic risks, and recommendations in the update can be used to strengthen the financial system further.“The Sri Lankan authorities have undertaken substantial macroeconomic policy adjustments to stabilize reserves. It will be important to continue macroeconomic stabilization and structural reforms efforts, in particular maintaining exchange rate flexibility while building international reserves, given the uncertain global outlook. A successor arrangement with the Fund would provide valuable support to the authorities in these endeavors.” Following the Executive Board’s discussion on Sri Lanka, Naoyuki Shinohara, Deputy Managing Director and Acting Chair, stated: “The current monetary policy stance is appropriate, and monetary conditions should remain firm in the near term given high headline inflation and possible second-round effects. With a flexible exchange rate regime, monetary policy can increasingly focus on inflation control to achieve broader macroeconomic stability while allowing the exchange rate to act as a buffer for external shocks. Foreign exchange market intervention should thus be limited to smoothing excessive volatility, and steps should be taken to gradually deepen the foreign exchange market.“The slowdown in economic activity and declining imports are adversely affecting fiscal revenues, while interest payments on government debt are higher than budgeted. The authorities are committed to meeting their 2012 deficit target by restraining expenditure, but a redoubling of effort to strengthen revenue administration is needed. Furthermore, continued structural reforms are required to put state-owned energy enterprises on a sound financial footing. The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Friday completed the eighth and final review of Sri Lanka’s economic performance under a program supported by a Stand-By Arrangement (SBA).The completion of the review enables the immediate disbursement of an amount equivalent to US$ 415.0 million, bringing total disbursements under the arrangement to an amount equivalent to US$ 2.49 billion. “Following robust growth in the first quarter of 2012, activity has started moderating in response to policy tightening and weakening global demand. Headline inflation has increased, but core inflation remains relatively stable, while tighter monetary and credit policies have begun slowing credit and import growth.

Reuters/Christinne Muschi Analyst Derek Spronck of RBC Dominion Securities advised investors to “keep calm and carry on.”“There remain lots of challenges ahead for SNC, but none of which we would view as insurmountable and more than reflected in the current share price,” he said in a research note Friday.Spronck held out hope for a remediation agreement — which would allow SNC-Lavalin to avoid criminal prosecution in exchange for fines and other penalties — in spite of the firestorm in Ottawa after the Globe and Mail reported the Prime Minister’s Office pressured former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to steer prosecutors toward negotiations with the company.A criminal case could result in a 10-year ban on bidding on federal contracts. SNC-Lavalin’s ability to bid would remain unaffected, at least directly, “during what could be a multi-year trial process,” Spronck noted.Analysts also pointed to a potential sale of some of the company’s 16.77 per cent stake in Ontario’s 407 ETR highway in 2019. The company has been mulling a partial sale for at least six months, which would hand it a slice of the $2.2 billion some analysts say the stake is worth.The company’s loss for its fourth quarter amounted to $9.11 per diluted share. That compared with a profit of $52.4 million or 30 cents per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2017.Revenue totalled $2.56 billion, down from $2.92 billion.On an adjusted basis, SNC reported a loss of $1.31 per diluted share compared with an adjusted profit of 98 cents per diluted share a year ago.Analysts on average had expected a loss of $1.19 per diluted share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon. MONTREAL — SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. slashed its dividend by 65 per cent Friday as it reported a fourth-quarter loss of $1.6 billion.The troubled engineering and construction giant said it will now pay a quarterly dividend of 10 cents per share compared with its earlier payment of 28.7 cents per share.SNC-Lavalin has been at the centre of a political scandal in Ottawa over the company’s desire to negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement in connection with fraud and bribery charges linked to business dealings between it and Moammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya between 2001 and 2011. Let SNC-Lavalin fail, if it must. Canada – and Quebec – will be fine Terence Corcoran: Trudeau’s inner circle was right to try sparing SNC-Lavalin’s life Woes pile up for SNC-Lavalin, company at centre of political storm The company also issued two profit warnings earlier this year related to problems at a mining project in Chile and its oil and gas business in Saudi Arabia.“The year 2018 was a disappointing year, as our mining and metallurgy and oil and gas segments underperformed,” chief executive Neil Bruce said in a statement Friday.Ongoing diplomatic tensions between Canada and Saudi Arabia have jeopardized future contracts in the Middle Eastern kingdom, Bruce said last month after announcing a $1.24-billion impairment charge related to SNC-Lavalin’s oil and gas business.The Jan. 28 announcement, combined with news about delays at the Chilean mining project and an arbitration loss in Australia, sent shares plummeting 27 per cent to close at $35.01, their lowest since September 2012.SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. has been at the centre of a political scandal in Ottawa over the company’s desire to negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement in connection with fraud and bribery charges in relation to business ties between it and Moammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya. read more

Former UN refugee agency chief Sadruddin Aga Khan dies

“All in UNHCR and the entire humanitarian community are deeply saddened by the passing away of Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. He left an indelible print on UNHCR’s history – leading the agency through some of the most challenging moments. Sadruddin’s name became synonymous with UNHCR,” said High Commissioner Ruud Lubbers, who received the news of the Prince’s death while on mission in West Africa.A statement issued by a UN spokesman said Secretary-General Kofi Annan was saddened to learn of the death of Prince Sadruddin, who was described as a “philanthropist and lifelong friend” of the United Nations. “He joins the Prince’s many friends around the world in giving thanks for the life of this remarkable and deeply generous human being,” the statement said.Prince Sadruddin became High Commissioner in January of 1966 at the age of 33 – the youngest person ever to lead UNHCR. Prior to becoming High Commissioner, he served for three years as Deputy High Commissioner. He was at the helm of the UN refugee agency during one of its most difficult periods, including the 1971 Bangladesh crisis, which uprooted 10 million people, the 1972 exodus of hundreds of thousands of Hutus from Burundi to Tanzania and the Indochinese boat people tragedy of the mid-1970s. In 1972, Prince Sadruddin played a key role in finding new homes for tens of thousands of South Asians expelled from Uganda by Idi Amin.After leaving UNHCR at the end of 1977 at his own request, he served in various capacities dealing with humanitarian situations in many parts of the world on behalf of the United Nations. These included Afghanistan and Iraq during the first Persian Gulf War. He was also a trustee of a number of charity organizations. He published several books and received numerous national and international decorations, including the French Legion d’Honeur and the UN Human Rights Award.Prince Sadruddin is the uncle of Karim Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of 12 million Ismaili Muslims. He is survived by his wife, Princess Catherine Aleya Aga Khan. read more

Guterres lauds UN peacekeeping highlights need to bridge critical gaps

The Secretary-General also highlighted some “critical” gaps in UN missions that must be bridged, such as the urgent need in the Mali mission (MINUSMA), for armored personnel carriers and in CAR (MINUSCA) for 24/7 evacuation helicopters that can operate from remote areas.Elsewhere, armed utility helicopters are needed; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance units; quick reaction forces, and airborne medical evacuation teams.He urged everyone to contribute, with the assurance that “they will be utilized effectively and efficiently”.Mr. Guterres also pushed for triangular partnerships and joint contingents, in which one group of governments provides equipment and training, and another provides troops and police; training to address safety and security challenges; and better equipment and local engagement.“Women peacekeepers and civilian staff are essential”, he also stressed, flagging that the UN has “almost doubled the number of female staff officers and observers” since the November 2017 ministerial meeting in Vancouver.However, he noted that so far this year, women account for only four per cent of military peacekeepers, indicating that he would present a new strategy to the Security Council next month to increase the numbers of female uniformed personnel.“Only our continued strong partnership can help us advance lasting peace and protection for those we serve”, concluded the Secretary-General.,‘Proud to be at the helm of peacekeeping’Taking the podium, UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix said that the more than 110 Member State participants gathered in New York, demonstrated “the deep and widespread commitment to peacekeeping, by Governments across the world”. He highlighted four priority areas to focus on “how we are fulfilling” A4P commitments, pointing first to the investment being made by the UN in solutions and developing regional peace process strategies.Citing several examples, such as partnering with the African Union in CAR on the February peace agreement, Mr. Lacroix said that “real progress” was being made.“We cannot achieve lasting peace without our partners” he stressed, appealing for support to political solutions and peace agreement implementation.Explaining that missions are being reconfigured to be more mobile and proactive, he said there were critical shortfalls, including a lack of helicopters, and other key resources that must be addressed.Thirdly, he pointed to the link between peacekeepers’ performance and their security, which includes “a renewed commitment” to implementing the concrete recommendations of A4P on improving the security of ‘blue helmets’.Finally, he outlined the UN’s strong commitment to increasing the number of women peacekeepers and ensuring women’s full and meaningful participation in political processes.“Increasing the number of women soldiers and police deployed to peacekeeping mission is an operational imperative”, Mr. Lacroix underscored, applauding those that have recruited, trained and nominated of female peacekeepers.The UN peacekeeping chief concluded by thanking the Member States for their “unwavering support”, saying “I am proud to be at the helm of peacekeeping, pride which is mirrored in each and every one of the women and men serving.” Secretary-General António Guterres opens the 2019 UN Peacekeeping Ministerial meeting to reaffirm and strengthen commitments to ‘blue helmets’ and others who work in peacekeeping missions across the world., by UN Photo/Cia PakAfter moment of silence for the 27 UN peacekeepers lost who lost their lives in 2018 and for “all who have died in the service of peace”, he stressed that making missions stronger and safer is a key element of his Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative, along with refocusing peacekeeping with more realistic expectations, and mobilizing greater support for political solutions.The UN chief thanked the more than 150 governments that have signed the Statement of Shared Commitments so far which, among other things, encompassed advancing political solutions and improving peacekeepers’ safety and security.“We are already seeing results”, said Mr. Guterres, pointing to a “significant reduction” last year in the number of peacekeepers killed, citing as examples the “more agile and more proactive” missions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic (CAR); and “for the first time ever”, verified military units on standby, which can be deployed in less than 60 days.”@UN missions often represent the last & only hope for millions of people facing daily threats to their safety & basic rights. … it is in the hands of the gov’ts you represent to enable peacekeeping to live up to its ideals & needs of our time.” —Angelina Jolie #PKMinisterial pic.twitter.com/cjYVlSavk5— UN Peacekeeping (@UNPeacekeeping) March 29, 2019 Pledges announced at Peacekeeping Ministerial on Uniformed Capabilities, Performance and Protection Sweden – Specialized Infantry Company to MINUSMA for 2020;

Ohio States Braxton Miller named 2011 National Freshman Performer of the Year

Ohio State freshman quarterback Braxton Miller was chosen Friday as the 2011 National Freshman Performer of the Year. The College Football Performance Awards organization selects its honorees based on the player’s improvement to the overall effectiveness of his team. During the 2011 season, Miller, who was not made available for comment, threw for 1,159 yards and completed 54.1 percent of his passes. Thirteen passes led to touchdowns, a freshman school record. Miller closed his first 10 games as a starter for OSU with season-high records against Michigan and Florida despite losses in both games. He threw for 235 yards at Michigan Stadium and earned a 78.3 completion percentage in the Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl. He also led the team in rushing with 715 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry on the season. Miller claimed team-best statistics when he ran for over 100 yards three times against Penn State, Indiana and Michigan. He also broke the record for the longest scoring run by a quarterback with 82 yards. Miller averaged 59.6 rushing yards and 96.6 passing yards per game. The award comes in the form of a crystal trophy that stands 22 inches tall and includes an eight-inch crystal football on top. Previous National Freshman Performer of the Year award winners include South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore in 2010 and Oregon’s LaMichael James in 2009. The Huber Heights, Ohio, native has been honored more than once for his efforts in the 2011 season. In December, Miller was awarded OSU football’s Archie Griffin outstanding offensive player award and voted the team’s most outstanding first-year offensive player by OSU coaches. The Big Ten Conference announced in late November that Miller would be the recipient of the 2011 Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year award as well. Miller, a communication major, tweeted a simple “Thank u !!” early Saturday morning. read more

Nightclub under fire for Kiss Cam promotion which encourages kissing strangers without

Koniambo nickel commissioning support – control infrastructure

first_imgGary O’Connell, Project Technical Director, along with Thierry Bonnet de Larbogne, KNS Process Control Manager, requested XPS Process Control group to assist in troubleshooting of the Profibus installations when problems were experienced during pre-operations testing. The Process Control group has two certified Profibus professionals (Alan Hyde & Phil Nelson) within the group. “Koniambo Nickel’s mine is already operating with the geological integrity of our resource forecasts intact. The ore-preparation plant and overland conveyer are in operation and the team is working to ensure we have 30,000 t of on-spec ore ready for the metallurgical plant by the end of the year.” A two week visit to the Koniambo site was made in August. This visit followed a brief visit two weeks earlier by a Profibus expert from Australia. The purpose of the XPS visit was to conduct further investigations of other Profibus networks to confirm the extent of the problems, and to determine if any other issues were present within the design and installation. Troubleshooting of digital communication buses requires different tools and techniques to traditional hardwired analog and discrete signals. One of the best tools for Profibus installations is Procentec’s ProfiTrace tool. This is a combination of software and hardware that allows a connection to be made to the bus to monitor the communications traffic. An integrated digital oscilloscope allows the quality of the electrical signal and the waveform to be analysed. Using this tool, XPS along with personnel from KNS and Hatch, were able to identify issues in other networks not previously tested. A number of tests were conducted to verify the behavior of different network topologies at various communication speeds, along with the effect of individual hardware components. Xstrata Nickel’s Koniambo project in New Caledonia is commissioning as it prepares for first ore by the end of 2012. The project design relies heavily on the use of Profibus DP, a digital communications bus, to link field instrumentation and electrical motor controls to the ABB Distributed Control System that is used for control and monitoring of the facilities. Ian Pearce, Chief Executive of Xstrata Nickel, said in November: “We are very excited about the progress being made at Koniambo, including the successful delivery of Line 1. It is a testament to our dedicated project and operation teams at Koniambo Nickel that we can now focus on moving to first production. “With the completion of Line 1, the majority of our construction resources will now be devoted to the second production line, which is forecast to be complete in the second quarter of 2013. Koniambo Nickel will ramp up to a steady state annual production run rate of 60,000 t of nickel in ferronickel within two years, by the end of 2014.center_img Alan Hyde explains that digital communications buses such as Profibus have advantages in that they enable functionality such as remote configuration and diagnostics of devices from the same systems that are used to monitor the process value or status information. At the same time there are potential cost savings in installation as a single twisted-pair cable can be used to communicate to multiple devices. However the Profibus design guidelines must be adhered to, particularly with respect to communications speed and network topology, and the installation guidelines must be followed to ensure good signal quality and robustness to electromagnetic interference. Deviating from the guidelines makes communication errors very likely. At the end of the visit XPS was able to make a number of recommendations to improve the robustness of the Profibus networks and to achieve reliable communications – as intended by the design.last_img read more

Employers expect median basic pay to rise by 1

first_imgMedian basic pay is expected to increase by 1% over the 12 months to June 2018, according to research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Adecco Group.Its Labour market outlook: summer 2017 report, which surveyed 1,139 HR professionals and senior decision makers, also found that 40% of respondents who are planning to make a pay decision in the next 12 months expect basic pay to increase at their organisation during that time, compared to 12% of respondents who plan to freeze pay.The research also found:1% of respondents expect average basic pay to decrease in the next 12 months.18% of public sector respondents expect to freeze pay in the year ahead, compared to 10% of private sector respondents.34% of respondents plan to provide a basic pay increase of 1-1.99% in 2017, 22% anticipate a basic pay increase of 2-2.99%, and 11% expect basic pay to increase by 3-3.99%.25% of respondents cite the rippling effect of the national living wage as having an impact on pay decisions, and 33% state the going rate of pay elsewhere as a consideration when deciding pay.23% of private sector respondents cite delivering the national living wage as a reason why pay growth has slowed, 21% state uncertainty over access to the single market as having an impact on pay growth, 21% cite pensions auto-enrolment, and 21% identify affordability as reasons for weak pay growth.43% of respondents report that their wage bill has increased because of the national living wage.32% of respondents that have seen their wage bill increase as a result of the national living wage plan to take lower profits or absorb the costs, 29% plan to manage the increase through improved efficiency and increased productivity, and 18% plan to pass the costs on to consumers.52% of respondents would respond in some way if the government were to increase the national living wage in April 2018 from £7.50 to £7.80. This includes absorbing costs or taking lower profits (15%), improving efficiency and productivity to offset costs (13%), and reducing the number of employees through redundancies or recruiting fewer staff (12%).Respondents expect median basic pay to rise by 2% in the private sector in the 12 months to June 2018, compared to 1% in the public sector, and 1.4% in the voluntary sector.The median basic pay award among respondents that have conducted a pay review in 2017 is 1.5%.Gerwyn Davies (pictured), senior labour market analyst at the CIPD, said: “Predictions of pay growth increasing alongside strong employment growth is the dog that hasn’t barked for some time now, and we are still yet to see tangible signs of this situation changing in the near term. The facts remain that productivity levels are stagnant, public sector pay increases remain modest while wage costs and uncertainty over access to the [European Union] market have increased for some employers. At the same time, it is also clear that the majority of employers have still been able to find suitable candidates to employ at current wage rates due to a strong labour supply until now.”Alex Fleming, president of general staffing at the Adecco Group UK and Ireland, added: “This quarter’s report demonstrates strong and stable employment intentions. These have remained in a positive range for the last two years during which time we have seen unemployment consistently fall. Context is important here though: employers continuing to hire isn’t, necessarily, an indication that they are convinced of a bright economic future, rather that nothing significant has changed in recent months. Many employers are getting on with the day-to-day hiring required to keep their businesses ticking along until they have enough information to build concrete recruitment plans.“However continued subdued wage growth that the labour market is currently facing is a real issue that employers need to tackle head on. Employers must to invest in staff to increase productivity, thus in turn providing them with the opportunity to increase wage growth.”last_img read more

HBO drops an in your face hint about who will sit on

Spoilers abound.  Emilia Clarke as Daenerys TargaryenHBOReportedly HBO posted a photo of the inky black throne, and if you didn’t look close enough, you might have missed that the throne is actually the head of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon Drogon. Danerys Targaryen’s dragon resplendent or at the very least adorning the throne could mean two things, either Daenerys won or somebody else did and took Drogon as a trophy.But it seems that Daenerys Targaryen may not make it after all, as signs point to her dying in the White Walker war. And this theory seems more credible as Daenerys is a fan favourite character and Game of Thrones is known for killing off its fan-favourite characters.The final season of Game of Thrones will air in April and will have six episodes. So, fans can expect every moment of every episode to be packed with epic moments. And apparently, the cast and crew have been saying their goodbyes while also teasing the end of the series to their friends and loved ones. Sophie Turner recently confessed to revealing the ending to her friends. It seems that everyone wants to know who will end up on the Iron Throne. We can’t wait for the final season of Game of Thrones. You can check out the video here:last_img read more

Will Mukesh Ambanis Reliance Jio celebrate topping market by going public

first_imgReliance Jio Republic Day 2018 Offer. The telco’s rapid growth since its launch in 2016 has been powered by aggressive marketing and brutal price wars.IBTimes India/Sami KhanMukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio is eyeing an initial public offering that may also coincide with its climb to the top of the mobile communications market. The Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) subsidiary already has the second biggest market base of 31.7 per cent nipping at the heels of market leader Vodafone Idea that has 32.2 per cent share. After having overtaken Bharti Airtel, which now has 27.3 per cent share, with aggressive pricing policy, Jio now hopes to become the top player by early next year, reports say.RIL, however, wants to first clean up its books by hiving off the fibre and tower assets to two infrastructure investment trusts (InvITs) it has created with external investor participation, a report in the Economic Times says. The report cites sources as saying that the IPO plans have advanced much through several meetings the company’s top management had with banks and financial advisers.”The telecom company has informed bankers that it expects to topple competition on the subscriber front shortly, which would bring in more revenue, and roll out its fibre to the home (FTTH) network, all of which will ensure a successful IPO,” the report quotes an unidentified source as saying. Another source said that concerns “were raised over Jio’s falling average revenue per user (ARPU),” a key industry parameter. The ARPU of Jio, that began operations in 2016, dropped for the fifth straight quarter to Rs 126.2 in March quarter from Rs 131.7 in the preceding one. Meanwhile, rivals Airtel and Vodafone managed to improve ARPU sequentially, signalling that their customers subscribe to higher tariff plans.Jio was the only telco to post profits in the March quarter, up 65 per cent year on year against a 56 per cent rise in revenue, the report says.

Jio is aiming for to top market share and hopes to close the gap with leader Vodafone Idea in a matter of months.REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeThe telecom unit’s enterprise value is pegged at around Rs 4.41 lakh crore, according to a note by brokerage IIFL. Rival Bharti Airtel, which has yielded the top position in market share to Vodafone and fallen to the third position behind Jio, has a market capitalisation of nearly Rs 1.79 lakh crore, at the close of trade on Thursday. Its stock closed 2 per cent higher at Rs 348.65 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Vodafone Idea share ended 4 per cent higher at Rs 11.90, giving it a market cap of over Rs 34,195 crore.RIL has apparently made it clear that the IPO could take place only after the recently demerged fibre and tower businesses – Jio Digital Fibre Pvt Ltd and Reliance Jio Infratel Pvt Ltd respectively – get monetised via external investments, according to media reports. Earlier reports said Brookfield Asset Management is close to investing in the portfolio of 170,000 towers currently valued at around Rs 36,000 crore. After transferring of debt to the tune of Rs 1.07 lakh crore to the two demerged units, Jio’s net debt stood at Rs 67,000 crore by March-end. “Since regulatory guidelines state that the telco can be listed after three years of financial reporting, the IPO cannot come before March 2020. But that will be too early – it’s likely late 2020 or even in 2021,” said one of the people cited above, according to the report.The return to power of Prime Minister Narendra Modi heading the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), seen to be more business-friendly, may also encourage companies to go public as the investment climate is expected to improve.

One year on Rohingya facing an uncertain fate

first_imgRohingya refugees make their way to a refugee camp after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Palong Khali, near Cox`s Bazar.File photo ReutersDoctors without Borders (MSF) in a statement on Friday said the denial of Rohingya’s legal status, coupled with unacceptable living conditions in haphazard makeshift camps, continues to trap refugees in a cycle of suffering and poor health.While Bangladesh showed extraordinary generosity by opening its doors to the refugees, 12 months on, the Rohingya’s fate remains very uncertain, said MSF, a Paris-based international humanitarian non-government organisation.“It is unacceptable that watery diarrhoea remains one of the biggest health issues we see in the camps,” says Pavlo Kolovos, MSF head of mission in Bangladesh.Host states in the region deny them any formal legal status, despite the fact that they are refugees and have been made stateless by Myanmar.Many of the refugees that MSF teams speak to are very anxious about the future.”I’ve lost my strength, my ability to work. I always have so many worries, worries about the future,” says Abu Ahmad, a Rohingya father of eight. “I think about food, clothes, peace and our suffering… If I stay in this place for 10 years … or even for one month, I will have to suffer this pain.”On 25 August 2017, the Myanmar Army launched renewed ‘clearance operations’ against the Rohingya people causing widespread violence and destruction, and forcing more than 706,000 to flee into neighbouring Bangladesh.They joined over 200,000 others that had fled to Bangladesh after previous waves of violence, bringing the total number of Rohingya hosted in Cox’s Bazar district to over 919,000.In the 12 months since, MSF has provided over 656,200 consultations, equivalent to more than two-thirds of Rohingya refugees, in 19 health facilities or mobile clinics.At first, more than half of MSF’s patients were treated for violence-related injuries, but other health concerns soon emerged that were linked to the overcrowded and unhygienic conditions in the camps. “The infrastructure to meet even the most basic needs of the population is still not in place, and that seriously affects people’s wellbeing.”  Donors and governments with influence over the Government of Myanmar have failed to show the necessary leadership by not pressuring it to end persecution against the Rohingya, which is the cause of their displacement.The UN-led humanitarian response in Bangladesh is, to date, only 31.7 per cent funded. The health care funding stands at a mere 16.9 per cent, leaving significant gaps in the provision of vital medical services.The Rohingya have long been excluded from healthcare in Myanmar, meaning they have very low immunisation coverage. Preventative health measures are therefore crucial. Vaccination campaigns, supported by MSF, have been instrumental in preventing outbreaks of cholera and measles, and in containing the spread of diphtheria.Under the pretext that the Rohingya will soon be returning to Myanmar, the humanitarian response has been hampered by restrictions placed on the provision of long term or substantial aid.The conditions endured by the Rohingya in the haphazard, makeshift camps fall far short of accepted international humanitarian standards, with the refugees still living in the same temporary plastic and bamboo shelters that were built when they first arrived.“In an area where cyclones and monsoons are common, there are almost no stable structures for Rohingya refugees, which has a tangible impact on their security and dignity,” says Kolovos.One refugee that MSF spoke to described how vulnerable his family felt in the camp: “When it rains we sit together, all our family members, [holding the house down] so the house won’t blow away. At night it is very dark here, we have no lights.”Considering the level of violence that the Rohingya faced in Myanmar and the trauma this will have caused, services to treat mental health issues and sexual and gender-based violence injuries remain inadequate.They are also complicated by the lack of legal status, which prevents people from reasonable access to justice and the rule of law.The Rohingya remain forcibly confined to the camps, and most of the refugee population in the camps has poor access to clean water, latrines, education, job opportunities and healthcare.“These restrictions not only limit the quality and scale of aid, but also force the Rohingya to depend entirely on humanitarian aid. It deprives them of any chance to build a dignified future for themselves and makes every day an unnecessary struggle for survival,” says Kolovos.More durable solutions must be found to respond to what is likely to be a protracted period of displacement.“The reality is that hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have been displaced in Bangladesh and elsewhere for decades, and it may be decades until they can safely return to Myanmar, if ever. The scale and scope of the Rohingya’s suffering merits a much more robust response – locally, regionally and globally,” says Kolovos.“Pressure must meanwhile continue to be exerted on the Myanmar government to halt its campaign against the Rohingya.”last_img

Less Than Two Weeks After Santa Fe Shooting Gov Greg Abbott To

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneTexas Governor Greg Abbott convenes the third of three roundtable discussions on school safety and student mental health issues, at the Capitol in Austin on May 24, 2018.Gov. Greg Abbott will announce a plan Wednesday to make Texas schools safer in the wake of the deadly Santa Fe shooting, according to his office.Abbott is set to unveil the set of proposals during two events, one in the morning in Dallas and the other in the afternoon in San Marcos. They come less than two weeks after the shooting rampage at Santa Fe High School, which left 10 people dead. Abbott’s plan will follow three school safety roundtables he held last week at the Capitol, soliciting input from victims, parents, teachers, lawmakers, law enforcement officials and other experts. Abbott tweeted Friday night that he would “soon announce many substantive details that can be implemented before the next school year begins.” Abbott’s proposals are expected to fall into two categories: those that can be implemented immediately and those that the Legislature will have to consider the next time it convenes. Lawmakers are not due to return to Austin until January, though Abbott has not ruled out calling a special session to bring them back earlier.last_img read more

Online shopping more popular among consumers Survey

first_imgThe study undertaken jointly by Yahoo and Mindshare analyses the shopping behaviour of customers to reveal that 31 per cent shoppers opt for online shopping in order to save the time and effort that might be spent on physically going to stores to buy the same products.About 28 per cent customers are driven to buy online due to the availability of discounts and promotions while the convenience to shop anywhere, anytime attracts the remaining 21 per cent, it said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The study also highlights how more and more customers are taking to mobile phones to make online purchases as compared to other electronic devices.“The e-commerce landscape in India is perhaps the most dynamic in the world, largely due to the rapidly evolving mobile ecosystem. This research highlights the role of mobile from the top of funnel to the bottom and how it varies across product categories. It will help us develop sharper, more connected communication strategies for brands,” MA Parthasarathy, Chief Product Officer, Mindshare South Asia said. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAccording to the survey, majority of consumers use only mobile devices while making purchases related to apparels, electronic devices, baby and pet care products.Most purchases made online over mobile phones tend to be regular or impulsive buys rather than expensive ones, the study claims.Over 90 per cent of the consumers use mobile devices for quick and frequent purchases of travel, music and movies, contrary to 36 per cent who purchase high consideration products like insurance on their PC or laptop. About 30 per cent people prefer buying products of personal hygiene from the store itself.The study also provides marketers with insights on India, to sharpen their digital and mobile commerce initiatives and build a strong mobile strategy.“The study shows that the consumer path-to-purchase is turning more complex and nonlinear, with mobile at the center of this evolution.“As mobile devices become more important in the consumer’s last mile of purchase decision, brands need to build targeted, more seamless shopping experience across all channels to strengthen sales and acquire new customers,” Francis Che, Head of Insights, APAC, Yahoo said.For those who continue to prefer in-store shopping, major detractors include non-authentic goods, unreliable delivery and lack of quality control.last_img read more

The Scientist who Tried to Cross Breed Humans and Chimpanzees

first_imgTo many these days the abbreviation “AI” means “Artificial Intelligence.” However there is another definition in the scientific community. One that has less to do with machinery and more to do with humanity… Artificial Insemination. Russian biologist Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov made his name in this field of AI, tinkering round the edges of what was seen as God’s plan. Bypassing the traditional method of conception, he gave life and hope to those who had none.Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov (biologist)However in the years after his death he was also known by another title — “Red Frankenstein”. He got that through his interest in blending the human and animal kingdoms. In the 1920s, Ivanov set out on an ambitious research mission. The destination? Africa.What he had in mind sounded like the business of a mad scientist. Yet for Ivanov it was all part of a day’s work. He’d already crossed a zebra with a donkey. Now he was looking to fuse a person with their genetic ancestor… the ape.A 2008 article on the New Scientist website writes, “Despite the disapproval of the scientific establishment Ivanov got the go-ahead – and the funds to mount an expedition to Africa to collect apes. Documents show that the decision was pushed through by leading members of the Bolshevik government…”Photo by shakko CC BY-SA 3.0He also received support from the Pasteur Institute in Paris. They ran a center for primates out in Guinea, West Africa and agreed to supply the raw material for Ivanov’s experiments in the form of native chimps.Ivanov’s plan was thwarted by nature at the last minute. Having traveled all the way to Guinea, he was disappointed to discover no suitable candidates for his unusual enterprise.Instead he worked for a while in the French capital, planning to try and catch his own primates later in the year. During this period he worked alongside surgeon Serge Voronoff on another mind-boggling pursuit.Serge VoronoffVoronoff’s reputation preceded him. New Scientist gives details of an “increasingly fashionable ‘rejuvenation therapy’. In a now notorious operation, Voronoff grafted slices of ape testes into those of rich and ageing men hoping to regain their former vigour.”Ivanov and Voronoff made a powerful but bizarre combination. Rather than using their Summer to catch some rays and watch movies, they “made headlines by transplanting a woman’s ovary into a chimp called Nora and then inseminating her with human sperm.”Following this failed side project, Ivanov made a second trip to Guinea. As a 2011 piece on the Scientific American blog mentions, “He only attempted to inseminate three females before being forced to abandon the project as useless.”Chimpanzee.But Ivanov chose not to return home and kept chasing his theory. In a development that wouldn’t look out of place in a horror movie, he took drastic measures.“Desperate to make use of his limited funding,” the blog writes, “Ivanov then made the horrific decision to attempt the insemination of African women with chimpanzee sperm without their knowledge.”The authorities in Guinea soon shut down that avenue of exploration. Ivanov went home to Russia, but the snow wasn’t all that was frosty. Word spread about his scheme to exploit female fertility, and it blackened his name.Ivanov attempted to reproduce the experiments, this time with willing Soviet volunteers. He spent the rest of the Twenties trying to realize a human/ape hybrid, but greater forces intervened that had nothing to do with science or the natural world.Oliver the chimpanzeeIn 1930 Ivanov was arrested on charges of sabotaging his rivals’ endeavors. He was exiled to a labor camp in the city of Alma-Ata in Kazakhstan, and by 1932 he had died from a stroke.The Russian establishment had turned against him, after the initial encouragement which led to Ivanov’s African excursion. Why was this? The answer lies in the complex political situation of the time, in a country thrown into a new era by the Revolution.Scientific American writes, “While some of his previous support was based in the political ideology at the time, there were strong political divisions that split scientific opinion on a range of issues and Ivanov was caught in between.”14-year-old boy after having an ape thyroid gland grafted onto his ownAccording to historian Alexander Etkind, whose ideas are referred to in New Scientist, Ivanov’s work was “part of an ambitious plan to transform society. The high-ranking Bolsheviks who backed Ivanov were intellectuals who saw science as a means of realizing their dream of a socialist utopia…”Their aims went beyond scientific prestige. They reportedly sought to alter the mindset of the nation so it would be more in line with their way of thinking.The article continues, “One way to do that was through ‘positive eugenics’, using AI to speed up the spread of desirable traits – a willingness to live and work communally, for instance – and to get rid of ‘primitive’ traits such as competitiveness, greed and the desire to own property…”Oliver the chimpanzeeBy looking back at Man’s primal ancestors, it was hoped human heritage could be used to change society for the common good.The Bolsheviks’ dismissive attitude toward religion was said to be courted by Ivanov, who highlighted the Darwinian dimension to his African proposal. Other theories behind the government’s enthusiasm include an interest in Voronoff’s monkey-fueled rejuvenation techniques!Some believe that Ivanov shared the Bolshevik ideals and it was partly a political decision for him. Others state that “AI” was his only goal, and the African situation was the perfect springboard to put his thoughts into practice.Whether his views were strictly political, or scientific, or both, the winds of change blew. Stalin took up residence in the Kremlin, and he was at odds with those who funded Ivanov.Scientific American describes how “other scientists rejected genetic research as bourgeois or imperialist and advocated the inheritance of acquired characteristics (what is commonly known as Lamarckism). It was these researchers… who had Stalin’s support at the time.”No matter what Ivanov’s standing as an eminent biologist, he wasn’t greater than Stalin’s influence. The dictator believed projects such as Ivanov’s would beat a path to fascism, and from that moment the ape man’s genetic golden goose was cooked.It’s easy to see the controversial Ivanov as a monster, the “Red Frankenstein” and an isolated case of a mad scientist. There’s a strong case to say he was. Though by no means the only expert mixing up human and animal genes, he certainly went too far trying to force artificial insemination on women.In echoes of Jurassic Park’s Ian Malcolm (played by Jeff Goldblum), Scientific American sums up his contribution by saying “Ivanov represents a scientist, widely respected in his field, whose dedication to find out if something could be done blinded him to ask whether it should be done.”Read another story from us: World’s First Painting Produced By Artificial Intelligence Fetches Huge SumHe also “reminds us of the role that politics can play in the development of scientific research even if the scientists directly involved are not political themselves.”Perhaps Ivanov’s tale of genetic experimentation is best viewed as a cautionary tale, much like the original Frankenstein himself.last_img read more

Energy Sector Growth Boosts Recovery

first_img Home Prices Housing Permits Jobs National Association of Home Builders 2014-03-07 Krista Franks Brock Energy Sector Growth Boosts Recovery March 7, 2014 445 Views Nationwide, the economy and housing market are functioning at a level about 87 percent of their pre-crisis normal levels, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and First American’s Leading Markets Index released this week, which measures metro markets based on housing permits, home prices, and employment.Fifty-nine of the 350 metro markets are at or above their pre-crisis norms, according to the index, up from 58 metros last month. At the same time, 130 markets are at least 90 percent of their pre-crisis levels, according to NAHB.A little less than half—about 45 percent—of the normalized markets are located in areas benefitting from strong employment in the energy sector.“The strong energy sector is at the forefront of the recovery and centered in many small and mid-sized markets in Texas, Louisiana, North Dakota, and Wyoming,” said David Crowe, chief economist at NAHB. He also pointed out that eight of the top 10 markets in NAHB’s index are located in these four states.A look at the unemployment rates in these states supports NAHB’s findings. Texas’ unemployment rate is 6 percent; Wyoming’s is 4.4 percent; and North Dakota’s is a meager 2.7 percent, according to December data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.Among major metros, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, ranked highest on NAHB’s Leading Markets Index with a score of 1.41, indicating the market is “41 percent better than its last normal market level.” Honolulu, Hawaii; Oklahoma City; Austin, Texas; Houston, Texas; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, also ranked near the top.A few smaller markets outranked the best of the larger metros. Odessa and Midland, Texas, both scored at least 2.0, indicating their markets are performing twice as well as they did before the economic downturn, according to NAHB.“Despite the cold weather that has constrained economic and housing activity across much of the nation this winter, markets are returning to normal levels,” said Kevin Kelly, chairman of NAHB. “As the job and housing markets continue to mend and the onset of spring releases the pent-up demand for new homes, this will bode well for the remainder of 2014.”center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Sharelast_img read more

Fifth autopsy on Nikolova findings not announced updated

first_imgPathologists last night completed the fifth autopsy on the body of a 46-year-old Bulgarian woman believed to have been mauled to death by two dogs in Paphos on February 22.Greek pathologist Hara Spiliopoulou and UK-based Cypriot doctor Andreas Marnerides carried out the procedure but did not make their findings public. The autopsy took several hours and finished at around 8.30pm.The two pathologists will be handing over their findings to the police in the next days. This was the fifth autopsy on Petruna Nikolova who came to Cyprus from Bulgaria to look for a job only to die a few days after her arrival.She was found severely injured in a potato field in Yeroskipou but died on the way to the hospital.The initial autopsy by state pathologist Angeliki Papetta, found she had died due to haemorrhagic shock resulting from multiple injuries, possibly caused by farming equipment.Three subsequent autopsies carried out on behalf of both the family and suspects indicated she was mauled by dogs.The initial discrepancy prompted the attorney-general to ask for a fifth autopsy to be certain that the state’s case would be airtight in a court.A 27-year-old man who owns at least five Rottweilers is to stand trial on charges of manslaughter and causing death through negligence. Two of his dogs, which have not been found, are believed to be the ones that fatally injured Nikolova. The authorities suspect the two animals were shot and buried elsewhere.The man’s father, 54, had been arrested on suspicion of acting as an accessory after the events but he was later released due to lack of evidence.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

the incident blew up security was reportedly beefed up in the posh locality amidst allegations from a section of reporters that they were stopped from covering Deepa’s visit With inputs from agencies The news that Pakistan’s National Security Advisor has resigned has created considerable speculation in Pakistan at a time when media and just about everyone else is knee-deep in conspiracy theories Lieutenant-General Nasser Khan Janjua’s exit was accompanied by rumours of a run in with the caretaker government headed by eminent jurist Nasirul Mulk That the move was sudden was apparent from the fact that the NSA was to chair a Pakistan Afghanistan Track II dialogue the next day which then had to be cancelled If his resignation was unexpected Janjua’s appointment was equally without warning In October 2015 the then NSA Sartaj Aziz was stripped of the office – though he retained foreign affairs – after ‘consultations’ between then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his then Army Chief (COAS) Raheel Sharif File image of former Pakistan NSA Nasser Khan Janjua AFP At this time Sharif’s rift with the army was yet to come and the COAS was – particularly in hindsight – a far more balanced professional who seems to have tried to give the civilian government a chance Janjua himself came with a wealth of military knowledge and a certain strategic awareness after his stint as the head of the National Defence University The National Security Advisor’s post and the National Security Council (NSC) itself has waxed and waned depending on the whims of the head of state of the time President Yahya Khan used it as an advisory forum for himself at a tumultuous time in Pakistan’s history It was re-established by President Pervez Musharraf in 2004 with the intention of keeping the civilians engaged in his administration which he did by appointing Tariq Aziz as his NSA During his tenure the NSC was set up under the National Security Act making it a statutory body Not unnaturally the PPP did away with the institution after it was swept to power after the assassination of the charismatic Benazir Bhutto The government of Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani chose to rather brusquely dismiss Major General Durrani as NSA after he admitted on television that Ajmal Kasab of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks infamy ‘could be’ a Pakistani Under Sharif the revival of the NSC was interesting Sharif had strongly opposed the setting up such a structure during his earlier term when his army chief merely proposed it The COAS General K Aramat was subsequently forced out due to fears that the NSC was envisaged by the army as a tool to keep decision making in its hands Ironically a decade later Sharif was to use the NSC for the very reverse in what was clearly an attempt to keep the armed forces engaged in decision making without actually giving them a veto Under him the NSC met fairly and regularly particularly in the aftermath of any rise in India-Pakistan tensions In recent months however the NSC had become more army-dominated than before since the chair Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was hardly in a strong position Therefore its decisions included a condemnation of the now ‘former’ prime minister Sharif in his statements on Pakistan’s mishandling of the Mumbai investigation and another which praised the role of China in Pakistan’s future In recent times Janjua has been in touch with the Indian NSA Ajit Doval and with the Indian Deputy NSA Rajinder Khanna at the meeting of NSAs under the rubric of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Thereafter came the not unexpected offer from the Chinese Ambassador in New Delhi to virtually mediate between India and Pakistan and a harsh Human Rights Report on Kashmir At the time of his resignation therefore the Pakistan NSA has been fully in line with the army’s view of the world and seemed to be in control of the ‘civilians’ However he may have reckoned without the political correctness and accountability that in Pakistan that can only be expected from a caretaker prime minister and cabinet The caretaker prime minister Mulk is a person who commands respect in his own right and has no political ambitions at all (he also has no political base) A few days earlier he had removed PML(N)’s Marvin Memon as the head of the highly influential Benazir Income Support Program – which essentially doles out big bags of money for votes – after there were protests that all cabinet ministers were expected to resign after the end of a government Since this was a perfectly correct legal point the prime minister removed her and put the program under a bureaucrat The NSA’s post similarly should have been vacated the moment the government’s term ended The caretaker prime minister who incidentally has a cabinet consisting of a mere six members has shown himself even during his short tenure to be impartial in his decisions Janjua’s resignation should be seen in this light and not in the framework of conspiracy theories which have little foundation The general also knows he may well return to his office After all the next government is hardly expected to be a paragon of political strength the university does not comment on research misconduct investigations, (The date does not appear on the retraction notice on Urology’s web site.

But how plausible is this explanation It suggests that a political leaders age has something uniquely important to say about the policies she may pursue Yetappealing though it soundsthere is scant evidence in support of this hypothesis Ratherthere are perfectly plausible conventional explanations that help us explain the facts In particularpolitical economy theory points to the constellation of the three Is to help explain policy formation These are: ideasinterests and institutions The first I refers to the ideological framework orif you prefercognitive map of the political leader or party in question Thusfor instancea party ideologically committed to small government and free markets isother things equalmore likely to pursue economic reform than one committed to socialism and redistribution This explanation fits the experience of India in the early years after Independence With its overwhelming domination of the politythe Congress party couldarguablyhave pursued the economic model of its choice Yetthe socialist leanings of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru decisively shaped Indias turn toward Central planning and away from a market-oriented systemthe consequences of which we are still living with Whether you agreed with him or notNehru was an idea politician who chose a state-led economic model for India because he fervently believed in it himselfquite apart from the political benefits or costs to himself or his party The second I refers to the self-interested calculation of their own interests that a leader or party will engage inand the impact this will have on their chosen policies Thusas an examplea party whose votes come from the working classes and which receives money from trade unions willother things equalbe likely to pursue policies that favour the interests of labour The Congress Partyafter PM Indira Gandhi broke up the partyis a perfect illustration of the potency of self-interest in the determination of government policy Pitching herself as the champion of the poordowntrodden and marginalisedIndira Gandhi succeeded in sweeping to power by winning votes handsomely among the rural poor and minority groupsand repaid her constituency by further socialising the economy and widening the scope of redistribution Yetfew would suggest this turn in the partys policies even further to the left than Nehru reflected ideological zeal on her part Ratherit was Machiavellian power politics at its most brilliantreflecting the primacy of interest or what we in India loosely call vote-bank politics The third I refers to the political and other institutions through which political activity and decision-making are filtered Thusfor instancepolicies will be formulated differently in a presidential system as compared to a parliamentary system Even among parliamentary governmentsWestminster systemswith first past the post elections in individual constituencieswill generate different outcomes than European-style proportional representation systems where parliamentarians are picked from party lists The importance of our inherited political institutions is self-evident in the lead-up to next years general elections As much as the mediaor perhaps even the publicwould like the contest to be a Rahul Gandhi vs Narendra Modi presidential battle royalethe reality will be that whichever political grouping

World War II when Soviet troops seized the four southernmost islands in the Pacific Kuril chain known as the Northern Territories in Japan Japan and Russia’s lingering tensions have prevented them ever signing a peace treaty to formally end World War II hostilities hindering trade and investment ties “This is a complex multi-faceted issue that can only be resolved in a manner acceptable to both sides through an even deeper partnership between the two countries” Putin’s chief foreign policy advisor Yury Ushakov said ahead of the visit Share This Article Related Article Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said in April that Russia and Japan had agreed to start negotiations on signing a peace treaty “as soon as possible” after the meeting His Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on a visit to Tokyo last month said Russia wants to “move forward” in relations but is not prepared to budge on the “result of World War II” Putin said during a public phone-in in April that he thinks “a compromise could be found at some point — and it will be found” on the territorial dispute Moscow hopes the meeting will help create a “constructive atmosphere in bilateral relations” but “immediate serious progress” is unlikely Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned Despite the warmer words from the Kremlin tensions between the two sides continue to surface and Japan has hit Russia with sanctions over the Ukraine crisis Russia has in turn angered Japan recently by building new modern compounds for its troops stationed on two of the disputed islands Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev also infuriated Tokyo by visiting one of the islands home to some 19000 Russians last year Putin said last month he welcomed Abe’s visit as it comes despite “pressure from (Japan’s) partners particularly the United States” Abe will later this month host a summit of the Group of Seven advanced industrial countries from which Russia has been excluded over its annexation of Crimea “Evidently Japan will try to act as a kind of middleman in the talks process between Russia and the US” Russia’s government newspaper the Rossiiskaya Gazeta said yesterday US President Barack Obama reportedly asking Abe in February to postpone his trip to Russia according to sources quoted by Japan’s Kyodo news agency Writing in pro-Kremlin daily Izvestia yesterday a former deputy foreign minister and ambassador to Tokyo Alexander Panov suggested the meeting could see “Japan drop a number of sanctions” it imposed on Russia over Ukraine For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Camp Bastion | Published: July 16 2017 10:09 pm FILE PHOTO: Security forces respond at the site of a suicide attack on a Shiites mosque in Kabul Afghanistan Jun 15 2017 (AP Photos/Massoud Hossaini file) Top News While Washington works on plans to send more troops to Afghanistan US forces on the ground are grappling with building an army in the middle of a war their commanders say is locked in stalemate It is slow hot often frustrating work ranging from overseeing basic infantry training to trying to create modern logistics systems for an army in which many soldiers cannot read or write “There are enormous challenges ahead” said Brig Gen Roger Turner who led a task force in Helmand five years ago and who has returned as commander of around 300 Marines training and advising the Afghan army and police When the Marines left Helmand in 2014 they did not expect to return but building the Afghan army has been slower than anticipated Many issues trainers focus on such as improving army leadership or getting troops off vulnerable checkpoints are ones American advisers have recommended for years Insurgents control five of Helmand’s 14 districts and contest the others threatening the capital Lashkar Gah where they have a strong foothold just outside the city centre Afghan forces are suffering thousands of casualties and without near-daily air strikes by US fighters and helicopters said Colonel Asmatullah Gharwal intelligence officer for the Afghan army 215th Corps “we would probably not be able to defend Helmand province” With US commanders declaring that Afghanistan faces “stalemate” the Pentagon is expected to add between 3000-5000 troops to more than 13000 coalition forces already there though there are no signs it plans to send them into combat That would leave the task essentially unchanged – not to defeat the Taliban but to get Afghan forces to a point where they can fight alone and force the insurgents to negotiate For Turner the key is improving army leadership an issue US advisers have stressed constantly but with mixed success since the NATO-led coalition ended combat operations in 2014 For years the government’s hold on Helmand one of the world’s major opium-producing regions has been undermined by corruption reaching to the senior ranks of the military The last commander of the 215th Corps appointed to clean up the unit last year was arrested after stealing his own soldiers’ food and firewood But the Americans have been impressed by his successor General Wali Mohammad Ahmadzai a former commando who has replaced about 50 senior officers Turner said the government in Kabul was now more serious about replacing ineffective leaders “When we were here before you could have a completely ineffective leader in position and you’d pretty much just have to deal with it” “DOING THEIR JOB” Camp Bastion the dusty patch of tents containers and barbed wire where the Marines are based is a shadow of the sprawling complex coalition troops occupied at the height of the war when more than 100000 of them fought the Taliban Instead of conducting combat patrols as many did on previous deployments Turner’s Marines work with Afghans training soldiers and helping plan and carry out missions to defend the province “The first thing as with anything is re-establishing security” said Col Matthew Reid Turner’s second-in-command adding that while Lashkar Gah had been held “the outlying districts have been more at risk than anticipated” Although they are no longer normally in combat so-called “green-on-blue” insider attacks by Afghan soldiers remain a threat US advisers were also closely involved in recent Afghan reinforcement and resupply operations in the heavily contested towns of Sangin and Marjah scene of one of the biggest battles the Marines fought in Afghanistan when they were there in 2010 Both operations were judged by the advisers as big successes involving considerable planning and preparation and clearing dozens of roadside bombs For the Marines such successes should encourage local forces to get off checkpoints and onto the offensive where they generally suffer far fewer casualties although many in the Afghan army would clearly welcome more support “We lost five districts to the Taliban” said Col Gharwal of the 215th Corps “If we have ground forces with us from the Marine Corps to clear these districts then I am sure we will have very good security” That is unlikely to happen without a major strategic shift from Washington Meanwhile the Marines work with Afghan instructors teaching everything from clearing mines to coordinating mortar fire “I was excited to come back to Helmand” said Staff Sergeant George Caldwell as he watched soldiers practising raiding a house “The way they conduct operations now is completely different I can see the improvement from five years ago” Many questions remain about whether Afghanistan’s mix of corruption and political dysfunction will outweigh any progress made and whether after 16 years of American presence in Afghanistan a new approach is needed But in Helmand the Marines leave those questions for others “I’m a big believer in everyone doing their job as well as they can” Turner said “That’s how I reconcile this stuff and make sure we don’t lose focus on issues beyond our control”
