Load remaining images The incredibly talented Icelandic group Sigur Rós rattled Detroit’s beautiful Fox Theatre this past Saturday, October 1st, playing a sold out show to an excited crowd. The band’s previous performance in the city was back in 2013, so many Michigan fans highly anticipated this show.That 2013 show featured the previous year’s Valtari release, and the then-upcoming Kveikur release. Unlike their previous visit, which included an orchestra full of violinists and choral singers among others, the group had a much more intimate show this time around, with no musicians accompanying them on stage. This is also Sigur Rós’ first tour as a trio, as Kjartan Sveinsson, the keyboardist for the band for well over a decade, left the band after their last tour.Despite these changes, the trio performed just as flawlessly, resoundingly and incredibly as in years past, and the audience’s constant captivation proved just that. In all of my years of attending various concerts and festivals, I don’t believe I have ever witnessed an audience so engulfed in the performance as this past Saturday’s. Barely any phones could be seen pulled out, as most attendees were simply too taken aback by all of the beauty to remember that the outside world even existed.The evening consisted of two sets of performances, with a 20 minute intermission in between. No opener was scheduled, and Sigur Rós went on at 8:30pm sharp as planned. Each set consisted of a blend of new songs, off of their upcoming album whose name is still a mystery, and various adorned classics from their two-decade discography. “Saeglopur” off of Takk was a favorite, as Jónsi’s piercing falsetto silenced the venue while a bow graced along the strings of his electric guitar, creating hauntingly beautiful tones.Equally mesmerizing to the evening’s music were the light and stage setup that accompanied it. LED lights and a massive backdrop created scenes of natural beauty, far off galaxies, thunderstorms and vibrant colors which splashed the high ceilings of the historic theatre, and with it, perfectly choreographed explosions of stage lights during each dramatic strike of Orri Páll Dýrason’s drums. In the group’s second set, the trio played the first two songs behind a semitransparent visual screen, while deep, darker lights set the tone, as their instruments resonated around the entire venue.The performance had a faultless balance of calm, devastating beauty created by the band’s many serene pieces, and the dramatic, vibrant contradictory pieces that shook each member of the audience back awake from a tranquil daze. The segue from one song to another was unforgettably fluent as well, leaving no time for much clapping until the very end, at which point the audience wasted no time in jumping up for a standing ovation following the band’s last song, “Popplagið”.Don’t miss Sigur Rós in a town near you!

Emily McConville The University of Notre Dame brought students from around the world to campus from April 6-8 to partake in the Hesburgh International Scholars Experience (HISE), which provides prospective international students with a glimpse into life at the University.According to assistant director of admissions Julie Moloney, the Latin American and Caribbean council initiated the program six years ago in hopes of providing international students with the opportunity to see and experience Notre Dame prior to making a college decision.“A lot of students don’t get the opportunity to visit Notre Dame before they have to make their decision, and we all know how beautiful this campus is and how great the people are,” she said.Moloney said the international students get the chance to experience the life of a Notre Dame student through the program.“We organize a lot of different activities and events for them,” Moloney said. “They get to do college information sessions with each of the different departments with a lot of professors and some of the academic advisors in the different departments.”In addition, Moloney said students are allowed to attend up to three classes in order to gain a better understanding of the academic aspect of student life. Participants also have the opportunity to observer dorm life and student-student interactions.“They get to stay in the dorms with student hosts, so the hope is that they’re getting to see Notre Dame from all angles before they have to make that decision as to where they see themselves the next four years,” she said.On Sunday night, the students partake in the press box event at Notre Dame stadium, according to the HISE agenda.“It’s really kind of neat for the students to be able to be up there,” Moloney said. “I think some of them realize how big of a deal it is, and some don’t until they come to Notre Dame.”Another trademark event of the weekend is the closing gala on Tuesday evening, Moloney said.“There’s a nice dinner, and there’s a speaker,” Moloney said. “Then we have a big dance afterwards with a photo booth and competitions. Everyone knows that they get to come, dress nicely for that and have a lot of fun.”Notre Dame has one of the highest percentages of students who study abroad among universities in the United States, and Moloney said it is also important to have international students attend the University.“Adding diverse minds and cultures is really enriching all across the board,” she said. “I think students that come back from [study abroad] experiences are so enriched academically and culturally.“I think that it aligns perfectly with the mission of the university to be bringing these diverse minds to Notre Dame just to stir the pot a little bit in terms of students that have grown up in different parts of the world with completely different cultures and completely different university systems and education systems.”Moloney said she hopes the HISE experience shows students all of Notre Dame’s strengths and allows them to decide if the University is the right fit for them.“We have programming that really reflects around what I kind of say are three pillars of Notre Dame,” Moloney said. “The mind, heart and spirit … our tradition of academics, community, spirituality.Despite being a respected academic institution, Notre Dame is not the right fit for everyone, Moloney said, but she added that if a student is interested in community and spirituality as aspects of a college experience, then Notre Dame is a good choice.“I think every student that graduates from here, you know that you’re graduating not just with a top-notch education, but you’ve also grown a lot personally in every aspect of the way,” she said.Moloney said Notre Dame is a place where students might experience their highest and lowest moments, but through these experiences, students grow markedly.“In a nutshell, I would recommend students to Notre Dame if that sense of growing as a whole person really appeals to them and knowing that, when you graduate, you’re going to be tasked with making a difference in the world, whatever you choose to do,” Moloney said.This task falls to students in every major, whatever career path they choose, Moloney said.“We’re challenging all of our students and all of our graduates to go on and make a difference,” Moloney said. “I think that’s one of the reasons I think people are attracted to Notre Dame because it is so mission-centered and because it comes with such a heavy task but a very manageable task.”Tags: HISE Prospective Students

Yemen’s separatists signed a power-sharing deal in Riyadh last November that quelled a battle — dubbed a “civil war within a civil war” — for the south that had in August seen them seize control of the second city of Aden.The Riyadh pact quickly became defunct, failing to meet deadlines for key measures including the formation of a new cabinet with equal representation for southerners, and the reorganisation of military forces. The STC announced in its statement that it was declaring “self-governance in the south starting midnight on Saturday April 25th, 2020.”A self governing committee will start its work according to a list of tasks assigned by the council’s presidency,” it said. Aden residents reported heavy deployments of STC forces in the city and a separatist source told AFP they had set up checkpoints “at all government facilities, including the central bank and port of Aden”.Military vehicles drove through the city with STC flags flying aloft.The political landscape in the south is complex, and despite the STC’s declaration some southern cities said they did not recognise the call to self-rule and would remain aligned with the central government.Yemen’s Foreign Minister Mohammad al-Hadhrami said the STC move was “a continuation of the armed rebellion last August and a declaration of rejection” of the Riyadh agreement.Tens of thousands of civilians have been killed over the past five years in the war between the government and the Huthi rebels.Earlier this month, Yemen reported its first case of coronavirus in Hadramawt, a southern government-controlled province, raising fears of an outbreak.Compounding the country’s troubles, at least 21 people were killed in flash flooding this month, with Aden’s streets submerged and homes destroyed.The UAE, like the STC, has a zero tolerance policy towards the Muslim Brotherhood and Yemen’s Brotherhood-influenced Al-Islah party, which has representatives in the internationally recognised government.Last August, deadly clashes broke out between the government and STC forces who seized control of Aden, ousting unionist forces who had set up base there when President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi fled the Huthi-held capital Sanaa in February 2015.The tussle for control of the south exposed divisions between the coalition partners — Saudi Arabia, which backs the government, and the United Arab Emirates, a backer and funder of the STC.The Riyadh agreement had been welcomed as preventing the complete break-up of Yemen, and hailed as a possible stepping stone towards ending the wider conflict in Yemen.But the cracks soon emerged, with complaints over food shortages in the south, a sharp depreciation of the currency, and a lack of funds to pay public sector employees. The STC’s statement Sunday said there had been a marked deterioration of public services, which “was clearly reflected in the latest torrential rains that caused the people in Aden deep suffering”.The government was using its powers as “a weapon to bring the southerners to kneel,” it said.While the government and the STC are technically allies in the long war against the Huthis, the secessionists believe the south should be an independent state — as it was before unification in 1990.Topics : The Southern Transitional Council (STC) accused the government of failing to perform its duties and of “conspiring” against the southern cause, and said self-governance had begun at midnight. The government condemned the move and said the separatists — who have long agitated for independence in the south — would be responsible for the “catastrophic and dangerous” outcome.The breakdown between the one-time allies comes as a Saudi-led coalition, which backs the internationally recognised government in a battle against the Iran-backed Huthi rebels, has extended a unilateral ceasefire aimed at fending off the coronavirus pandemic — a move rejected by the Huthis.
December 16, 2016 Jobs That Pay, Press Release, Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today visited Tec Centro in Lancaster to highlight the importance of workforce development and job training, especially for middle class families and underserved communities.“Tec Centro is a remarkable program, combining language development, basic education, skills training, and job placement into one comprehensive service that helps people gain the experience and training they need to get jobs right here in Lancaster,” Governor Wolf said. “The Commonwealth’s investment of $250,000, at the urging of Rep. Mike Sturla (Lancaster), will allow Tec Centro to deliver their premier training programs to more residents of Lancaster.“This expansion will be an essential component in their plan to bring education and job training to the residents of Lancaster County, so that they can be prepared to join the workforce and have the skills needed to fill, and excel in, good middle class, family sustaining jobs.”Governor Wolf’s core focus includes ensuring Pennsylvania’s economy is creating middle class jobs and that Pennsylvania workers have access to training that prepares them to take hold of those jobs. Nearly 100,000 more Pennsylvanians are working since this time two years ago, and in 2016, the Wolf Administration secured commitments for creating and retaining more than 200,000 full-time jobs and the investment of nearly $1.1 billion in Pennsylvania’s economy.Tec Centro’s service delivery system integrates language development, adult basic education, skills training, and job placement into one comprehensive service which is community based and culturally competent.“This funding will allow Lancaster’s Tec Centro to expand their services and provide great opportunities for the community,” said Rep. Sturla. “As the state’s premier bilingual vocation training center, it provides opportunities in family-sustaining careers. I am glad that I was able to help ensure they have the funding needed to educate and train as many individuals as possible.”Tec Centro has started to deeply address the workforce development issues affecting the Latino community in Lancaster. The success of Tec Centro will provide an important replication model much needed in Latino communities across the Commonwealth.“We are particularly pleased that Governor Wolf has visited Tec Centro because our leadership, staff, and students have been working diligently to create a workforce development vehicle that succeeds with marginalized communities who need an integrated strategy of language development, adult basic education, bilingual skills training, and job placement,” said Carlos Graupera, President and CEO of the Spanish American Civic Association, which runs Tec Centro. “Tec Centro has become an important vehicle in the Lancaster community for the advancement in the work force of unemployed as well as underemployed residents of our community.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Touts Workforce Development, Job Training Programs in Lancaster
Property Council executive director Chris Mountford among development in West End. Pic Jono Searle.CONFIDENCE in Queensland’s property market has fallen for the first time in nearly two years on the back of the latest tax grab proposed by the state government.The ANZ/Property Council Survey released today, taken in the weeks either side of the November state election, has recorded a drop of two index points for Queensland in the March 2018 quarter — the first decline in 20 months.The state now has the lowest confidence levels of all Australian jurisdictions.The re-elected Palaszczuk Government has announced plans to increase land tax rates by 2.5 per cent on properties worth more than $10 million and more than double the tax rate for foreign investors from 3 to 7 per cent.GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HEREProperty Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford said the results confirmed industry concern about the proposed property tax hikes, which he argued would hurt jobs growth and home values.“At a time when we need to do more to catch up with other markets, increasing taxes on property is a big economic risk,” Mr Mountford said.“The impact of these proposed tax increases can already be seen in the figures.“Forward work schedules, staffing level expectations, and Queensland’s economic growth predictions are all down.”The ANZ/Property Council Survey Queensland results for the March quarter of 2018.The Property Council is urging the Government to reverse the proposed tax increases, saying ordinary Queenslanders would pay the price because businesses would be forced to pass on the cost to consumers.“The proposed land tax hike is ultimately going to flow through to affect capital values, and impose higher rents and costs on businesses,” he said.“I think there’s a general lack of understanding that foreign buyers are a key ingredient to getting new housing construction starts going.“If we’re making it harder for those people to invest in Queensland, ultimately that’s going to flow through to lower levels of activity.”The latest ANZ/Property Council Survey shows a drop in confidence in the Queensland property industry.

Owners Toni and Chris Kennedy proudly display a sign that reads “Bonnie Doon” at the entrance to their Macadie Way home.It’s a nod to the 1997 Australian comedy-drama about the Kerrigan family’s fight to save their home from the compulsory acquisition of developers who wanted to expand the neighbouring airport. The owners say it’s their own slice of serenity.After more than a decade living on the 3.42ha property, the couple have decided to sell it so they can move closer to the water.It is listed on the market with a $2.895 million asking price.Mrs Kennedy said they bought it because her husband wanted space at home for his horses.Over the years, they have chipped away at renovating the three-bedroom, two bathroom house, which even has a “pool room”.“It was over 10 years, we just did bits and pieces as we could afford it,” Mrs Kennedy said.It is much more modern than the film’s holiday home but Mrs Kennedy said it was still a family home. The Gold Coast’s “Bonnie Doon” home at 73 Macadie Way, Merrimac.“WE’RE goin’ to Bonnie Doon”. It’s slightly bigger and much more modern than the holiday home made famous in Australian cult classic The Castle but this Gold Coast property promises the same sense of serenity. There’s plenty of land for horses. Imagine waking up to this every day.The family also had a holiday house in Bonnie Doon, Victoria, where they regularly went to enjoy the “serenity”.“How’s the serenity,” Darryl Kerrigan, played by Michael Caton, famously said in the movie.Mrs Kennedy said Bonnie Doon was where the family went to “be really happy”, and their beloved Merrimac home made them feel the same.“It was all about the serenity – that’s what this place is,” Mrs Kennedy said.“That’s our Bonnie Doon.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:44Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p288p288p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

He believed that charges against him were “politically motivated.” Last week, four complainants – Roy Jesus Giua, Benggie Debuyan, Marites Castillo, and Maria Cecilia Tan – lodged a joint affidavit before Assistant City Prosecutor Allan Vir Gumahin. Four complainants reported to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Bacolod City Field Unit alleging that the selection of SAP beneficiaries in Barangay Mansilingan was manipulated to favor certain relatives and close associates of the respondents. The barangay captain explained that all beneficiaries underwent proper screening, and even sought the help of the city’s Department of Social Services and Development (DSSD) to assign DSWD personnel to screen the beneficiaries. Charged before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office by the CIDG were Barangay Captain Rodolfo Pico, barangay secretary Edward Menesis, purok presidents Julius Villaflor and Victorious Christally Valenzuela, purok kagawads Gina Gilbor, Amelita Mondejar, Gregorio Beniten, Lourdes Palma and Anabelle Javier, and Mercedes Rory Capunong. Pico, for his part, denied the allegations. He pointed out that he only followed protocols issued of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Giovanni Trapattoni has put his faith in Richard Dunne and James McClean as his reign as Ireland boss approaches a defining moment. Anthony Pilkington had been tipped to make a debut on the left, while striker Simon Cox was considered as an option, but it was 24-year-old McClean, discarded by Sunderland over the summer, who eventually got the nod after impressing in the corresponding fixture in Stockholm, a 0-0 draw in March. Trapattoni said: “He played well, he is also physically strong and this game is a tough game – it will be a technical, but also a physical game against Sweden. They are strong physically. “At first, I thought about playing with four strikers, but then I thought three strikers is already enough, and because also during the game the other options could be very important. “During the game, I can also choose to have other tactical opportunities. That is the reason.” Dunne’s return will add experience and know-how to a defence which has repeatedly laid the foundation for Ireland’s better results under Trapattoni. The manager still needed assurances over the decision to select a man who because of injury played only 25 minutes of football last season – and that came in June. Discussing Dunne, now at QPR, Trapattoni said: “I said at the last conference, I have to think very well about Richard because firstly, it was a long injury and secondly, he was without a club. “I said also I would follow him because his fitness would be important, and I have seen him very well with the same personality. Press Association The 74-year-old Italian had indicated earlier this week that 33-year-old stalwart Dunne would return to the heart of his defence for Friday night’s World Cup qualifier against Sweden for the first time in a competitive game since the Euro 2012 finals. But he sprang a surprise when he named his starting XI and included Wigan winger McClean in it as the injured Aiden McGeady’s replacement. “I have seen him play very well in games and for me, he is the same Richard as he was before the injury.” Skipper Robbie Keane, who has spent much of his international career at the opposite end of the pitch to his fellow Dubliner, was delighted to see him back in harness. Keane said: “He’s a massive presence. He’s my mate and I know how frustrating it has been for him for such a long time, to be out since the Euros, basically. “I know how excited he is now to be back in the fold and desperate to play in a competitive game. “He’s had a good start to his new team with QPR, so he feels fit and he feels sharp. He’s a massive, massive player for us. “He has a massive presence when he plays for us and any player who comes up against Richard Dunne knows that they are in for a tough night.” Sweden’s visit to the Aviva Stadium and the trip to Austria which follows four days later will go a long way towards deciding the destiny of Ireland’s qualification hopes, and perhaps Trapattoni’s continued presence in his job. However, it is a challenge the veteran manager is relishing. He said: “We are very conscious that in the next two games against Sweden and Austria, we are playing for our participation in the World Cup. “I have watched the [last] match against Sweden and I am convinced that we have a good chance to win this game, because in Stockholm we played very well. “Now we need to repeat the same performance with full commitment. Only with this can we think about achieving qualification, because after the game against Austria we can have greater morale.”
He feels City can achieve an astonishing feat, as long as they do not become fixated by the idea. He said: “It’s possible for them to win all four. They will go for it and want to win it. “When you get into that position the thing is you don’t talk too much about it at all, because you are in such a great frame of mind. “You get into the rhythm of playing a game and performing, winning and playing and performing and winning. “That was what we felt for the last five months of 1999. It was just game after game after game. We rotated and didn’t have to make too many changes. “We had won so many games and Peter Schmeichel’s penalty save (in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal) was a key moment because Arsenal would have won the double. “That’s the margins in football.” Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes owner Vincent Tan can help the club become a Premier League force. Malaysian businessman Tan has caused controversy by changing the club’s kit from blue to red and sacking manager Malky Mackay after a series of disagreements. But Tan claims to have ploughed more than £120million of his own money into the club and has already backed Solskjaer in the transfer market with the acquisitions of Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli. There were also three club-record signings during the summer and Solskjaer is confident Tan can help the Bluebirds become a top-10 side, and re-iterated he will have control over all football matters. Solskjaer, whose side dropped into the relegation zone after defeat to West Ham last weekend, said: “The owner is a winner and he wants all of his businesses to be successful. Now he trusts me to make the football decisions. “In the short term it is important that we stay in the Premier League, but then again he has reassured me that we are looking to strengthen if the right people are available. “It is not like I have X amount of money. It is my job to find value for money and put it to him. He has been very open for discussion. “It is a great football club and a top 10-place is the medium and long-term aim, and who knows what can happen in the long, long term?” On Saturday, Solskjaer takes his side to the Etihad Stadium to face a Manchester City side with 10 wins from 10 at home in the league and 99 goals scored in all competitions so far this season. The Citizens remain in contention for a trophy quadruple. Solskjaer famously helped Manchester United to the treble in 1999, scoring the winner against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Dedigout ran out a convincing winner of the Ladbrokes Ireland Boyne Hurdle at Navan after drama at the final flight in the Grade Two contest. Bryan Cooper always looked comfortable on the Tony Martin-trained 6-4 favourite, who was coming off the back of a victory in the Galmoy Hurdle, and all looked to be going to plan when he hit the front after jumping the third-last flight. But Briar Hill was switched to put in a powerful challenge under Ruby Walsh and had just hit top gear when he fell at the last, allowing Dedigout to ease away from Zaidpour to score by two and a half lengths, with Gerdago running a fine race in third. Press Association Martin said: “He jumped well coming back to this trip. He always had the pace and the ground helped his stamina come into play. “Ruby was a bit unlucky and who knows what would have happened if he’d stood up, I thought we had a little left and it would have been interesting to see.” Dedigout was trimmed to 20-1 from 25-1 for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at Cheltenham with Paddy Power, who cut Briar Hill to 16-1 from 25-1. Boylesports left Dedigout unchanged at 20-1. However, Martin warned: “Hopefully our fellow is OK in the morning, and there will have to be at least yielding in the ground wherever he goes. We’ll get him home and see where we go from there.” Cooper told At The Races: “Tony’s done a great job getting him back. He loves that soft ground, it’s a big help to him. He’s doing nothing wrong so far “I was in front sooner than I wanted and I wasn’t doing much in front. I’d be hoping if my lad got into a battle he’d come out the other side. Ruby was maybe travelling the better, but I always thought I had plenty up my sleeve. “There’s another one in him, no doubt, but we’ll be very careful where we go. It will want to be good, even ground wherever he does go.” The victory was part of a treble for owners Gigginstown House Stud, who also scored with Very Wood and Cogryhill.

London, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho says his time at Manchester United is “a closed chapter” and he is only interested in beating them when he takes his in-form side to Old Trafford on Wednesday.It is the new Tottenham manager’s first return to the touchline at United’s home ground since his sacking by the club last December.“This is a closed chapter for me,” said Mourinho, who has won all three of his matches in charge of Spurs. “I left the club, I took my time to process everything that happened, I took my time to prepare myself for the next challenge.“Honestly, United for me is in my book of experiences, it’s in my history book.”United are struggling under Mourinho’s successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but go into the game just two points behind fifth-placed Spurs.“It is not for me to analyse United now,” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference. “I analyse them as an opponent, how they play. How can we beat them? How can they beat us? For me that is the important thing.” Jose Mourinho Mourinho is excited about the prospect of returning to Old Trafford.He said: “I feel good, I like to play big matches, I like to play against the best teams and go back to a place where I was happy.“I have a great relationship with the Manchester United supporters. I went back as a pundit and I was humbled by such a beautiful reception.“Tomorrow I go back as the coach of the team that will try and beat Manchester United.“I understand that what they want is the exact opposite of what I want. Of course during the match I expect them to forget me.” Share on: WhatsApp
UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer Denver Nuggets’ Devin Harris (34) passes against Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) and Jordan Clarkson in the second half of an NBA basketball game, Saturday, March 3, 2018, in Cleveland. The Nuggets won 126-117. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CLEVELAND — Tucked inside his locker-room cubicle, LeBron James was getting dressed following another tough loss when a familiar voice grabbed his attention.Richard Jefferson came to visit.ADVERTISEMENT But the Nuggets answered as Paul Millsap drilled a 3 and Harris made two more to put it away. Jamal Murray and Wilson Chandler added 16 points apiece for the Nuggets, who are 9-3 since Feb. 1 with wins over Golden State, Oklahoma City, Cleveland and two over San Antonio.“For us to come in here on a back to back and beat that team, they were doing everything they could to get that win,” Nuggets coach Mike Malone said. “I couldn’t be prouder of our guys. Important win.”DUNK CITYLarry Nance Jr. gave the Cavs a needed lift and the crowd a jolt with a vicious second-quarter dunk.Catching a pass on the baseline, Nance, who recently participated in the dunk contest during All-Star weekend, took one dribble, cocked his arm and posterized Denver’s Mason Plumlee. The slam brought James and several other amazed Cavs onto the floor to celebrate.WELCOME BACKThe 37-year-old Jefferson returned to Cleveland for the first time since being traded in October, and felt strange entering the visitor’s locker room at Quicken Loans Arena. He was beloved by his Cavs teammates for his attitude and selflessness.Jefferson experienced plenty of drama during his time in Cleveland, part of playing with James.He’s close with the three-time champion, who can become a free agent this summer. There’s already speculation about where James will sign next.“I don’t know, no one knows, people can guess, everyone wants to now throw these shots in the dark,” Jefferson said. “‘Oh he’s going to go here, he’s going to do this. He played junior high hockey with this person so maybe he’ll go play in Minnesota.’ Shut up. No one knows.” James smiled at his former teammate, and in that moment, things were like they used to be for the Cavaliers.Right now, everything’s a struggle.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkGary Harris scored 32 points, Will Barton added 23 and the Denver Nuggets did most of their damage behind the 3-point arc in a 126-117 win over Cleveland on Saturday night.The Nuggets dropped 19 3-pointers, including three in the final 2:26, to hold off a second-half charge from the Cavs, who remain a work in progress as they try to blend four new players in on the fly.

We’re all trying to figure it out.”James finished with 25 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds — his 13th triple-double this season — but Cleveland’s lack of a dependable No. 2 scorer while Kevin Love is out with a broken left hand continues to be a major problem.More troublesome, though, is the Cavs’ defense or lack of it. Whenever Denver needed a big basket, the Nuggets got it by taking the extra pass and knocking down 3s.“They had it going tonight offensively, so we just tried to throw everything at them,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “We switched. We blitzed. We showed. We did a little of everything. They got hot.”J.R. Smith scored 19 points — all in the second half — in his return from a one-game suspension for throwing a bowl of soup on Cavs assistant coach Damon Jones. With Smith and James carrying the scoring load, the Cavs pulled within 115-114 with 2:40 left.ADVERTISEMENT
Dear Editor,World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world every year on 31 May. It is intended to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption around the globe.The day is further intended to draw attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to more than 7 million deaths each year worldwide, including 890,000 of which are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.The member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) created World No Tobacco Day in 1987. In the past twenty-one years, the day has been met with both enthusiasm and resistance around the globe from governments, public health organizations, smokers, growers, and the tobacco industry.YoursRooplall Dudhnath
Former CBL board members Kolli S. Tamba and Melisa Emeh and Board member Elsie Dossen Badio -Reappear on Monday, with Charles Sirleaf, Internal AuditorsThe House of Representatives has unanimously voted to hold former Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) Milton Weeks in “contempt” for printing additional L$10.5 billion banknotes without an expressed authority from members of the 53rd Legislature, an action which, according to the House has put the past and current Legislators in disrepute, and has caused unwanted protests that impeded legislative function on Monday, September 24.Former members of the CBL Board of Governors, Kolli S. Tamba and Melisa Emeh and Elsie Dossen Badio, were also placed under contempt charges.The contempt of the Legislature is an offense of obstructing the House in carrying out its functions, or of hindering any legislator in the performance of his or her duties.The motion was made by Nimba County District #8 lawmaker, Representative Larry Younquoi after a closed-door session.The motion carried the three former CBL Governors, and the current Governor, who also served between 2016 to July, 2018, to reappear on Monday, November 19 at 11:00 a.m. before the full Plenary, including former Governor David Farhat, Deputy CBL Governor Charles Sirleaf, CBL Director and Deputy Director for Internal Audit, Adolphus Forpka and Joseph Dennis, respectively, to also appear with evidence as to why they, too, should not be held in contempt for the unauthorized printing of additional L$10.5 billion.The Chief Clerk, according to the motion, was mandated to write President George Weah to expedite those employees of the Executive, who are not in the country to be made to come home before next Monday to appear.The motion was prompted following over four hours of testimonies from the four witnesses but some lawmakers argued that their testimonies cannot be considered as ‘prima facie’ evidence because of inconsistency in their testimonies.A ‘prima facie’ is based on the first impression, accepted as correct until proven otherwise.Former board member Kolli S. Tamba (May 2016 – May 2018), told lawmakers that being aware of continuous back-and-forth meetings with the Legislature in their interpretation, the letter written by the Chief Clerk and the secretary of the Senate was an “expressed authority,” especially with the second-to-last paragraph.“In the view of the above, and with the power assigned with the Legislature under Article 35(d) of the Constitution, this shall constitute your legal and sufficient authority,” Tamba’s letter said.Kolli said the CBL’s resolution was written verbatim based on the letter from the Legislature.Governor Melisa Emeh (January 2016 – January 9, 2018) said for their understanding, the letter from the Legislature meant “Approval” but apologized that the last paragraph was not adhered to, which said: “Meanwhile, the Legislature would request that you furnish with the appropriate details of the volume and denominations of the replacing banknotes prior to the printing and minting of coins.”She pointed out that the Board of Governors are policymakers, but the administrative matters or day-to-day activities are taken care of by the Executive Governor and Deputy Executive Governor for Operations.She also stated that deposition of some of the money at a warehouse at the Housing Bank is an old scenario and intended to “spread the risk.” She indicated that the Finance Ministry was paid for using the Housing Bank.Mrs. Elsie Dossen Badio (2016 – present) also admitted seeing the letter from the Legislature and said they understood it to be an authority given the CBL to print additional money. She indicated that LD$15 billion is gradually being infused in the economy.Former Executive Governor Weeks maintained that the letter from the Legislature was interpreted as an authority based on a two-month long conversation with the Legislature.Though the letter did not state the volume and denomination, he stressed that their interpretation was that the Legislature already knew the volume and denomination from the “closed-door meetings.”Weeks denied acting alone to print additional LD$10.5billion and indicated that it was a collective mistake.He, however, admitted failing to inform former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and the Legislature with the appropriate details of the volume and denominations of the replacing banknotes prior to printing.The former CBL boss further disclosed that coins were minted and are with the CBL with the remaining Liberian banknotes, but stressed that there is no money missing.In adherence to the Legislature’s authorization, the Central Bank convened a Board meeting in which resolution BR-06-/2017 for the printing and replacement of Liberian dollar legacy banknotes was adopted.The resolution cited Article 32(2) of the Central Bank of Liberia Act of 1999, which grants the Central Bank the authority to print and issue Liberian Dollar (LRD) banknotes, albeit with the consent of the Legislature.The resolution referenced the Legislature’s July 19 letter requesting its full consent for the printing and subsequent issuance of new LRD banknotes, the simultaneous replacement of all LRD legacy notes and the introduction of LRD coins in lower denominations.The Board’s resolution authorized the Executive Governor to print more of the new banknotes and mint coins in obedience with the Legislature’s mandate.But a noted Liberian lawyer(name withheld) has told the Daily Observer that the Board of Governors as well as the Executive and the Deputy Executive Governor for operations were in error to have proceeded with the printing of the banknotes. According to the lawyer, the letter purporting to authorize the CBL to proceed with printing was not only irregular but illegal as well.This is because the letter did not bear the signature of the Speaker of the House of Representatives since he is, according to the Constitution, head of the Legislature argued the lawyer. He further maintained two separate letters bearing the signatures of the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives and the Secretary of the Senate respectively cannot be construed as a having the force of Legislative authority simply because both individuals, by law, lacked the standing to commit the Legislature to any deal or arrangement. As such, according to the lawyer, since what is not done legally is not done at all, the letter of authority unto which former CBL Governors acted was bogus and by extension their decision to print the banknotes was also illegal.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Three years after its completion, the Kato Secondary School in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), will finally open its doors to accommodate students at the beginning of the Christmas School Term according to Education Minister Nicolette Henry.Minister Henry visited the school on Thursday along with Social Cohesion Minister, Dr George Norton. Also accompanying the Ministers were senior officers within the Education Ministry; representatives from the Public Infrastructure Ministry; the Guyana Audit Office; Kares Engineering, the firm contracted to build the school; Vikab Guyana Limited, the consultancy firm that overlooked the completion of the remedial works to the building; the Regional Education Office; and the Regional Democratic Council.Education Minister Nicolette Henry inspecting the school’s planThe high-level team toured the entire school complex and inspected the state of readiness and to highlight what additional works need to be done in order to ensure that the school is ready for a September 2018 opening.Particular emphasis was placed on the school’s dormitory, which in the past was flagged for having a number of structural defects. However, with the remedial works being completed, those pressing issues have been solved.Henry further stated that the visit allowed her the opportunity to recognise some of the areas that may not have been given attention, which from a policy directive, ought to have been considered.“We have to ensure that Information Technology (IT) is paramount in terms of smart classrooms, ebooks and IT labs and the configuration of the Science labs and the Home Economics building,” Minister Henry said.Meanwhile, Minister Norton said it is important that the school is completed while assuring Toshao Clifton Perreira that Government will do everything possible to achieve the promised September opening.The Kato Secondary School was completed three years ago but was never commissioned since investigations revealed a number of structural defects, which needed to be remedied before students and teachers could occupy the building.
Foreign Direct Investment …points to complaints about judicial delaysA recent report from the United States Economic Affairs Bureau has painted an unflattering picture of Guyana’s legal system and the way it doles out justice in contractual and civil matters. Among other things, the report cites complaints of sloth in the Judiciary As a factor in its analysis.Guyana was among other countries that had their investment climates assessed by the US Department of State for 2018. The report makes it clear that the problem is not legislation; it’s the enforcement of said legislation.“Sufficient legislation exists in Guyana to support foreign investment in the country, but implementation of relevant legislation continues to be inadequate. The objectives of the Investment Act of 2004 are to stimulate socio-economic development by attracting and facilitating foreign investment,” it states.The Department noted that other relevant laws include the Income Tax Act, the Customs Act, the Procurement Act of 2003, the Companies Act of 1991, the Securities Act of 1998, and the Small Business Act.It was pointed out however, that the regulators are still required to act in order for much of these legislative measures to be implemented. And even though the State Department acknowledged that there is no known case of executive interference, it noted that the court systems are still perceived as lacking.“The judicial system is generally perceived to be slow and ineffective in enforcing legal contracts. The 2018 World Bank’s Doing Business Report states that it takes 581 days to enforce a contract in Guyana. Suspected corrupt practices and long delays make the courts an unattractive option for settling investment or contractual disputes, particularly for foreign investors unfamiliar with Guyana.”“In order to redress this obstacle to investment, the Government of Guyana, with support from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), established a Commercial Court in June 2006. Given Guyana’s growth potential, there is need for expansion and strengthened capacity in the near future.”In summing up, the State Department noted that implementing the legal framework remains inadequate as the judicial system is slow and ineffective in enforcing legal contracts.The Department also noted that there have been no recent cases of expropriation. It went on to advise that all companies should conduct due diligence and seek appropriate legal counsel to have any concerns resolved prior to doing business in Guyana.Persons have long complained about the sloth of the Judiciary. A recent case was Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, who had noted back in June that more than three years after his party filed an election petition in the High Court, the matter continued to languish in the courts.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google Inc. and Clear Channel Communications Inc. announced a long-term agreement Sunday that will allow the Internet search leader to place advertising for its online customers on more than 675 Clear Channel radio stations. “This radio partnership with Clear Channel is a pretty big statement that Google is in the radio industry to stay and have a big impact,” said Drew Hilles, Google Audio’s national sales director. The agreement will give Google advertisers that had not relied on radio direct access to Clear Channel’s national distribution system through an easy-to-use interface, Hilles said. It will also allow those customers to target their campaigns, reaching particular audiences in targeted locations at specific times, and to get quick feedback about their campaigns, he said. “This is a true win-win,” John Hogan, chief executive of Clear Channel’s radio division, said in a statement. “Clear Channel Radio gets access to an entirely new group of advertisers within a new and complementary sales channel, and Google adds another option for its existing customers.” Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The move represents Google’s latest effort to take its online advertising clout to other media. Although the majority of the company’s $10.6 billion in revenue last year came from Internet ads, Google has made previous ventures into print, radio and television advertising. The initial test for Google Print Ads, a Web-based marketplace meant to connect newspapers with advertisers, was launched in November and includes more than 100 advertisers and 70 of the country’s top newspapers. In December, Google started testing a radio advertising service meant to reach hundreds of radio stations nationwide. The company is slowly adding advertisers to the service, though Google didn’t make clear how many advertisers are involved so far, nor did it set a timetable for opening the service to all. With Clear Channel, the nation’s largest radio station owner, on board, Google’s advertisers will be able to access about 1,600 stations though the Audio Ads service, company representatives said. Last month, Google announced a partnership with EchoStar CommunicationsZZTO Corp., whose Dish network is the second largest satellite service in the U.S. The alliance was expected to show that the automated formula that runs Google’s successful online advertising network can also work to bring advertisers to a long-established platform such a satellite TV. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

An independent report written by former GAA President Peter Quinn opposed the introduction of a split in parishes in Letterkenny, we can reveal.The report was written last year as Letterkenny Gaels pushed to have a part of the town – the parish of Aughaninshin – recognised as a Gaels-only area where it could draw players from.That would have left St Eunan’s with Conwal and Leck. However St Eunan’s claim splitting the town would break a decade-old agreement, and say the boundary issue could hit other clubs in the county.A meeting of clubs in the county next month is set to vote on the issue. And it is even set to be discussed at Letterkenny town council monthly meeting.Here is the Peter Quinn report in full:MEABHRÁN DO COISTE DHÚIN na NGALL I was asked, by a representative of Coiste Dhún na nGall, to examine the respective merits of the claims made by the two G.A.A. clubs currently operating in Letterkenny viz. St. Eunans and Letterkenny Gaels, on the need for boundaries to determine the catchment areas of the two clubs within that town. I set out below the nature of my investigation and, ultimately, my conclusions and recommendations.BackgroundUntil relatively recently, Letterkenny was a single Parish, which was, by far, the biggest Parish in Raphoe Diocese, on a population basis. It has since been divided into two Parishes, each with its own church. According to the Diocesean web-site, the two Parishes of ‘Aughaninshin’ and ‘Conwal and Leck’ are still the two biggest Parishes in that Diocese, with ‘Conwal and Leck’ being almost twice as big as the third biggest Parish and both of the Letterkenny Parishes having a population which is a multiple of that in the majority of Parishes in this Diocese. A number of senior clubs in Donegal are selecting from population bases as low as 15% of that of either of the two parishes in Letterkenny.At present, each of these Parishes hosts three or four primary schools and each has at least one second-level school. The primary-level school-going population in the town is well in excess of 2,000, according to Diocesean figures.Not only is Letterkenny the largest settlement in Donegal, but demographically, for much of the past decade, it was also the fastest growing town in its size category in Ireland and, for part of that decade, it reputedly had the most rapid growth, in its category, in Europe. According to G.A.A. policy, as provided in its strategic review of 2001, the population of Letterkenny would justify the existence of three clubs, though, in major settlements, that policy is taken as an aspiration rather than being mandatory.Soccer and rugby are already strong in Letterkenny, as are basketball, swimming, athletics and golf. In St. Eunan’ College, soccer is now the field sport with the highest profile, and throughout much of Donegal both soccer (in particular) and rugby are well organised and are clear threats to the G.A.A.’s position in the County.There is an acceptance that increased participation in Gaelic Games, in this town, is a priority for the G.A.A. in Donegal. There is also a concern that any dispute within the G.A.A.1 fraternity may have the ultimate consequence of encouraging potential young players to give their primary allegiance to other codes. In Letterkenny and in other parts of Donegal, there is, and there is likely to continue to be, considerable cross-over between Gaelic Games and other codes.The Two ClubsSt. Eunans is a long established club, having being founded more than eight decades ago. It was, for most of that period, the sole G.A.A. club in Letterkenny. It has had an outstanding run of success, over the past decade, and is easily the foremost club in Donegal at present. Its success on the playing field has helped it to attract playing members, who come from outside Donegal, to reside in the town.In the past, O’Donnell Park (owned by St. Eunans) was Donegal’s premier ground, but problems with flooding reduced its status. Those problems have now been rectified and it has again started to attract occasional, major, non-championship, inter-county games. Currently, it has two pitches – a full size ‘Prunty’ pitch, with a stand for 2,500 spectators and total capacity of close to 10,000 and a second ‘training’ pitch.Some years ago, following the establishment of Letterkenny Gaels, this club developed a St. Eunan’s Academy, for coaching and developing young players and has been attracting up to 200 children, between male and female, to its Sunday morning sessions. Its overall youth coaching programme is very comprehensive, involving a large number of coaches, both males and females, and both football and hurling. It also uses members, who are unemployed, to undertake coaching within local schools, where it provides an extensive programme.This club has also acquired other parcels of land, some of which are also used in coaching under-age players, leaving it with total property extending to close to sixty acres, in adjoining parcels (the aggregate area was not confirmed during this analysis – the foregoing figure was provided by the club).It also has a Club House, with a bar licence and eight changing rooms. It has invested approximately €1.75 million in its more recent developments, including borrowing €750,000 (these figures were also provided by the Club and accepted as accurate). All its facilities are vested in the G.A.A.2Letterkenny Gaels is a relatively new club; it has been in existence for approximately fifteen years, when its application for affiliation was supported by the St. Eunans representative(s) on the County Board.The Gaels currently participate mainly in the lower leagues at adult level, but their recent under-age performances in football have been quite good. They also participate in hurling, where they are reasonably strong, competing in Division 1, as compared with Division 2 in football. Its progress in football is demonstrated by the fact that it has recently had two representatives on the County Minor panel and another on the under-16 squad.The club has its own dedicated G.A.A. pitch, within a complex, which it shares with the local rugby club, which is expanding its activities in the Letterkenny area. There is, therefore, major cross-over between Gaelic games and rugby in this part of the town. The current arrangements provide for a dedicated G.A.A. pitch, a dedicated rugby pitch and a pitch which is shared, with each club having use of it for an agreed part of the year. The quality of its playing facilities is confirmed by their use for under-age finals in Donegal.This club is planning a major physical development scheme, in conjunction with the rugby club. The proposed investment is budgeted at €750,000 and Letterkenny Gaels will have to undertake major fund-raising; it believes it needs some guarantee of numbers, if it is to become involved in such expenditure.Methodology AppliedI met with representatives from both clubs, separately, on two evenings in Ballybofey. The agenda for the first of these meetings was entirely open and both sides were represented by three officers. The second meeting, which was also attended by three representatives from each club, was designed to clarify a number of issues which arose from the earlier meeting and to try to identify potential areas of agreement. In both of those meetings, arguments were advanced forcefully and there was clear evidence of differences in perspective, on a variety of issues. I then held a third meeting at which both sides were present together. I also reviewed demographic data from both CSO sources and Raphoe Diocesan sources.I do not propose to rehearse all the issues presented to me on those occasions; instead, I set out below the main issues raised by the two parties, as identified by me – I recognise that the two Clubs may hold a different view of my summary of each of their positions.3The Case Presented by Letterkenny GaelsLetterkenny Gaels are seeking the introduction of defined catchment areas for each of the two clubs within Letterkenny, based on ecclesiastical boundaries and citing the provisions of Treoraí Oifigiúil in relation to ‘Playing Eligibility’ – specifically, the definition, of ‘Home Club’ and its reference to “…a player’s native Parish…”.Effectively (and they accepted this), the town would then be divided for G.A.A. purposes, with each club having identifiably distinct catchment areas and boundaries. They accepted that Aughaninshin Parish currently contains many families whose heads of household or other family members have a strong affinity with St. Eunans; that includes many who had played for that club in the past and would probably wish their offspring to play for it too. They recognised that this had the potential to create dissention and they offered to accommodate St. Eunans, in any manner agreeable to an Coiste Contae, in retaining such members and potential players, including accepting special provision which would allow the off-spring of former St. Eunans players or senior club members to opt for that club. However, they clearly anticipated that, over time, Letterkenny Gaels would have the active support of almost the entire G.A.A. fraternity in the Aughaninshin Parish.They argued that the development of their club was being constrained by the strength, success, resources and profile of St. Eunans, as well as by its tradition within the town. In the absence of a dedicated catchment area, the Gaels could never develop to their full potential. In particular, they felt disadvantaged and discouraged by the fact that, when they undertook coaching in any of the schools in the Aughaninshin Parish, St. Eunans responded by sending their coaches into that school, thereby splitting the allegiance of the pupils.They expressed the view that rugby was much better co-ordinated in its support for local schools – providing a united front to potential new members.Letterkenny Gaels also indicated that the club was now facing critical issues, in that it was proposing to embark on a major programme of physical development, with huge financial implications and that the club needed some level of assurance about its “…supply chain of young people…” if it was to justify undertaking this investment.However, they explicitly recognised that St. Eunans had a very well organised under-age structure – probably “…the best in Donegal…”; that they had “…raised their game…” in response to the formation of the Gaels (including in hurling activity) and that they were4putting major effort into ensuring that they would continue to have access to all the best players in Letterkenny.Ultimately, they proposed to focus the development of the club on the schools and the young people who attended those schools in Aughaninshin parish. Their expectation was that, over time, the young players from Ballyraine etc., who were currently being attracted to train with St. Eunans, due to both that club’s success at senior level and peer pressure, would eventually align themselves with Letterkenny Gaels, if the parish rule was applied and they were given sole access to the schools within their parish.The Case Presented by St. EunansSt. Eunans accepted the need for a second club in the town, given its population, and indicated a willingness to work with the Gaels in strengthening the Association in Letterkenny. They would accept the creation of a Letterkenny Board as a mechanism for increasing participation in Gaelic Games among the youth of the town.However, they rejected the division of the town on a parish basis, citing the following two main reasons:(i) affiliation of Letterkenny Gaels was accepted on the explicit understanding that boundaries would not be introduced within Letterkenny; and(ii) their club’s membership (playing and non-playing) currently derives from all parts of the town, and has done so down through the years.There are, they claimed, socio-economic differences between the two Parishes, which render primary population statistics useless as a basis for determining boundaries within a town, where the majority of parents of potential young G.A.A. players are former St. Eunans players.They asserted that they have become the premier club not just in Letterkenny, but in Donegal, by providing good facilities and the most comprehensive programme of coaching and player development in the County. If the Gaels wished to become an equally strong club, they would have to match the efforts of St, Eunans.Using the schools as an argument for separate catchment areas ignores the fact that, in virtually every staff room in the town, there are members of the St. Eunans club and any such proposal would be extremely divisive within the schools.5According to them, the existing transfer system allows players to transfer within the town and should be left as the best route for resolving problems within Letterkenny.St. Eunans argued that there was a need for more investment in coaching in Letterkenny; but the main focus should be on raising the profile of Gaelic Games in St. Eunans College and not on splitting the town, by introducing boundaries. There are enough young players to satisfy the needs of both clubs, but introducing a boundary would result in loss of support from both the business community and others and would have a particularly adverse effect on St. Eunans and its playing base. Specifically, they argued that those who do not currently support the Gaels would not support them after the introduction of a boundary either.Ultimately, for St. Eunans, the only acceptable solution was for Letterkenny Gaels to increase their efforts at promoting the games to the youth of the town and match St. Eunans on that basis; that would improve their access to players, raise standards within the town and benefit the G.A.A. as a whole.ConclusionsBased on my analysis of the data and information provided to me, the following main conclusions arise (other matters also arose, but they are not germane to the current issue):(i) There is a clear need for a second club in Letterkenny and it should be viable in both playing and financial terms; a third club is not on the agenda, at present, and could not easily be accommodated in Letterkenny;(ii) Club affiliations and all related issues, including territorial implications, are entirely a matter for each individual County Board, according to Treoraí Oifigiúil;(iii) Donegal has not, to date, adopted the so-called ‘Parish Rule’ as part of its bye-laws (and neither have several other counties – particularly in Ulster);(iv) Even if Donegal adopted a ‘Parish Rule’ as a bye-law, it would not necessarily apply to urban areas (the former ‘parish rule’ had an explicit exemption for urban areas) and Letterkenny is a new urban area, though it was not specifically covered in the former rule;(v) St. Eunans provide a more comprehensive under-age development programme than do Letterkenny Gaels, but it has vastly more resources and experience, and it is, and will continue to be, very difficult for Letterkenny Gaels to compete in that environment;6(vi) Members and supporters of St. Eunans live in all parts of Letterkenny and many of those who live in Aughaninshin Parish do not identify with the new club, with which they never had any affiliation;(vii) Failure to reach some form of agreement has the potential to damage the G.A.A.’s capacity to achieve its optimal status within Letterkenny.Clearly, Letterkenny Gaels are operating at a significant disadvantage at present and this is adversely affecting the club’s development – but that is primarily attributable to their relatively short existence.RecommendationsBased on my analysis of the issues involved and on my conclusions as set out above, I hereby make the following recommendations for action by Coiste Chontae Dhún na nGall and for consideration by the two clubs:(a) Coiste Dhún na nGall should take the lead in establishing a Letterkenny Board designed to promote under-age coaching and games development in the town, using the G.A.A.’s coaching and games development structures and processes as set out in national policy i.e. with no formal competition among younger age cohorts and a focus on skills development; the Letterkenny Board should include equal and multiple representation from both clubs, and should also include one representative from each of the local primary schools; it should be chaired by an officer of an Coiste Chontae; its activities should be based in the facilities of both clubs, on an equitable basis, and any informal competitive activity should involve members of both clubs, on a shared basis; terms of reference for this Board should be determined by Coiste Dhún na nGall.(b) Coiste Dhún na nGall and the two clubs should understand clearly that participation in any under-age coaching programme(s), organised by either club, bestows no right of membership and that membership must be awarded entirely in accordance with the Association’s Treoraí Oifigiúil, at the ages specified therein for youth and full membership, respectively.(c) Coiste Dhún na nGall should not impose boundaries within Letterkenny, at this point; instead there should be a ‘stand-still’ agreement for the next five years, during which time both clubs would compete for members throughout all of Letterkenny and the effectiveness of the Letterkenny Board in raising standards could be assessed.7(d) All coaching within the town’s primary schools should be co-ordinated by the Letterkenny Board, using resources provided by an Coiste Chontae, in tandem with any resources provided by Comhairle Uladh or Ard Comhairle and those provided by the two clubs; unilateral coaching activity at primary school level, by either club, should be prohibited, unless it has been sanctioned in advance by the Letterkenny Board.(e) Coiste Dhún na nGall should seek special support from superior bodies to assist with coaching and games development in Letterkenny and should devote some of those resources to specific coaching initiatives by Letterkenny Gaels for those in the 14-18 year age-group.(f) The Letterkenny Board should co-operate with Coiste na nÓg, at County Board level, in promoting Gaelic Games within the second level schools and colleges in Letterkenny.(g) The progress of the Association’s games within the town should be monitored by the County Committee, on an annual basis, to ensure that all young people have an opportunity to participate in them and, in the event that some schools are not being catered for on an adequate basis, it should be prepared to make whatever adjustments to these recommendations, it deems appropriate.It is reasonable to expect that the two clubs may have differing views on the foregoing recommendations. Their views should be considered by Coiste Dhún na nGall, prior to finalising action on whatever recommendations are accepted.Peadar Ó Cuinn 25u Bealtaine 2010.8GAA BOUNDARY DISPUTE: REVEALED…FORMER GAA PRESIDENT OPPOSED SPLITTING LETTERKENNY was last modified: October 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal GAALetterkenny GaelsPeter QuinnSt Eunan’s GAA club

DECLAN KERR has stepped down from his role as Finn Harps media officer and vacated his seat on the Club’s Board of Directors.In a statement this morning, Kerr confirmed that he has resigned ‘in light of negative comments from sources within the club’ – and has warned that he is considering legal action against ‘three individuals’.Kerr, in his statement, claims that he has been ‘subjected to an ongoing social media campaign of personal attacks over the past year by three individuals.’ He said: “I wish to remind those who’ve posted these comments on social media sites about my professional and personal integrity that such remarks are subject to the same legal rigours for libel content, such as that pertaining to the print media, and are likely to be a matter for court proceedings.“In that regard, I have been tracking these comments for consideration by my legal advisers with the objective of having those who’ve made them being held to account for their actions.”Matters raised their head earlier this week in response to an article posted on the official Finn Harps website, www.finnharps.com.A report about Harps’ draw against Cork City last Friday night, which was accompanied by the by-line ‘By Declan Kerr, Finn Harps Media Officer’, read: ‘Fans can see the work being put in by Hogan (sic) and Paul Hegarty on a small budget and appreciate the efforts of the players and back room team who have stuck together through very difficult periods this season. They have ignored the baffling negativity from a small element, some of whom actually call themselves Club volunteers.’ The last line, in particular, appeared to be a tipping point for many.On social media, several high profile Harps volunteers, including the Supporter Liaison Officer Aidan McNelis, and Diaga Design, said they had withdrawn their services from the club.Kerr had served as Finn Harps’ Media Officer since July 2016 and was a nominee for the Soccer Writers Association of Ireland (SWAI) ‘Press Officer’ Award.Although not included in the list of the club’s Board of Directors, it is understood that Kerr joined the Board earlier this year.Statement of Declan Kerr in full“I am stepping down as Media Officer with Finn Harps FC in the light of negative comments from sources within the club in relation to my coverage of a recent away match.For some time it has been my view that I do not have the full support and positive reaction needed to report and comment in a manner that is in best interests of promoting Finn Harps in a proactive way. I have also been subjected to an ongoing social media campaign of personal attacks over the past year by three individuals.I wish to remind those who’ve posted these comments on social media sites about my professional and personal integrity that such remarks are subject to the same legal rigours for libel content, such as that pertaining to the print media, and are likely to be a matter for court proceedings. Advertisement In that regard, I have been tracking these comments for consideration by my legal advisers with the objective of having those who’ve made them being held to account for their actions.I have been forced to consider my position over a number of months in the hope that the issues arising could have been resolved and it is with much regret that I am now taking this course of action to step down as Finn Harps Media Officer and from the Club’s Board.Despite this very difficult time for me personally, I have been fundraising over the past week to help Finn Harps through a challenging financial period and I will be presenting the proceeds to the Club in the coming days.I am proud to have served in the Media Officer role for the past three years. It was very rewarding also for me personally that my work was recognised by being nominated twice in three years for the Irish Soccer Writers Association Media Officer Award. Advertisement I trust that my work has been of real benefit to Finn Harps in promoting the Club teams at both senior and underage level.Finally, I want to wish Finn Harps Football Club, their hundreds of volunteers and supporters all the best in the future. Hopefully the senior team can retain their place in the Premier Division for next season and the underage sides can achieve success in their respective competitions in the coming weeks.Finn Harps Media Officer steps down and vows to take legal action was last modified: September 26th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Declan Kerrfinn harps
ALAMEDA — Paul Guenther tried to stop Bengals opponents for 13 seasons. On Sunday, he’ll try and stop his longest-tenured employer for the first time.Guenther served as a defensive assistant in Cincinnati from 2005-13, then as defensive coordinator from 2014-17 before joining Jon Gruden’s staff in 2018. He’ll return to his old home for the first time this weekend when the Raiders (3-10) visit the Bengals (5-8), the only difference his black outfit accompanied by a splash of silver instead of …
29 April 2009Motivated to give tourists the kind of experiences they themselves would like to have when travelling, Cape Insights offer special-interest guided tours of unusual quality, featuring guides and guest lecturers of the highest standard.They present a variety of special-interest tours around Cape Town, tackling areas such as architecture, craft art, history, gastronomy and archaeology.Other tours on offer include trips to the World Heritage site of Mapungubwe in Limpopo province, the world-famous Kruger National Park and the wilds of the Eastern Cape.Where Cape Insights stands out is in the quality of the lecturers who join the tours to provide information, offer insights and stimulate discussions.‘The fairest Cape of them all’Sixteenth century British mariner Sir Francis Drake famously called the area “the fairest Cape of them all”. More recently, Richard Busch, travel editor for National Geographic Traveler, described Cape Town as “one of the most beautiful and compelling places to visit on the planet.“In addition to a city with fascinating historical sites, excellent museums, vibrant markets and a handsomely restored waterfront … I encountered mountain wilderness, rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, lush gardens, beautiful wine estates, superior hotels – and some of the most welcoming people I’ve ever met,” Busch is quoted as saying on Cape Insights’ website.The tours on offer are in-depth, entertaining and educational experiences ranging in length from nine days and eight nights to 12 days and 11 nights.While each tour has a special focus, many other highlights are provided, including visits to places that make the Cape so special, including Cape Point, Table Mountain, the Western Cape wine routes, and destinations featuring the striking Cape Dutch architecture and the plant life unique to region.Gastronomy TourWines from the famed Cape Winelands play a big role in the Gastronomy Tour, with a number of wine routes being visited. Interactive cooking opportunities are also on offer.This is all mixed together with visits to important sights in and around Cape Town, Franschoek, Stellenbosch and Hermanus, resulting in a 10-day, nine-night tour that offers an in-depth insight into food, wine and life in the Cape.The Gastronomy Tour is highlighted by the inputs of lecturers Phillipa Cheifetz, John Ford and Allan Mullins. Professor Brian Huntley (see under Archaeology Tour) and Dr Terence Rapke (History Tours) also contribute to the exploration of food and wine, and who can blame them? They help explore a wonderful selection of foods that draw from Cape Malay, Afrikaner and pan-African influences.Cheifetz, the food editor for Femina Magazine and a consultant editor for Taste Magazine, has published many best-selling cookbooks, including Cape Town Food, The Monday to Sunday Cookbook, and Lazy Days, which featured in the Gourmand World Cookbook 2007 Awards.Ford is the former cellar master of the International Wine and Food Society and chairman of the Oenophiles wine club. His speciality food and wine emporium has won the Outstanding Outlet award for several years from Eat In, South Africa’s definitive food lovers’ guide.Mullins is a Cape Wine Master. He sits on numerous wine tasting panels, is a wine selection manager for a leading retailer, has co-authored two books on wine and judged numerous wine events, including the Diners Club wine list of the year.Craft Art TourIf craft art is what grabs your interest, then Dr Elbe Coetsee and Margie Garratt are the authorities who will make your tour special.Taking place over 12 days and 11 nights, Cape Insights’ Craft Art Tour uncovers the creativity and unique art of the Cape and South Africa. It includes joining artists in their surroundings, and meeting the people who create forms that are both art and craft. It’s an opportunity to take a look at the past and the present, and at the ways of life that have inspired the art of the region.Dr Elbe Coetsee, with a PhD from the University of Pretoria, published Craft Art in South Africa, a ground-breaking contribution to the field. She also established the Mogalakwena Craft Art Development Foundation and initiated a craft centre to support the economic and social upliftment of the Pedi community in the North Western province of South Africa.Margie Garratt is a professional textile artist whose name is synonymous with quilting, and whose work crosses the boundaries between art and craft. She was the driving force behind Innovative Threads, an annual exhibition providing a greater multi-cultural understanding of South African textile and fibre art.Architecture TourThe architecture of Cape Town was heavily influenced by three men: early Cape governor Simon van der Stel, famous English businessman and colonialist Cecil John Rhodes, and Sir Herbert Baker, who was the dominant force in South African architecture for two decades. Their contributions are are all explored in Cape Insights’ Architecture Tour.Highlights include a private visit to Groote Schuur, formerly the Prime Minister’s residence, which was commissioned by Rhodes and designed by Baker. There is also a behind-the-scenes tour of the Houses of Parliament.In addition, the origins and evolution of the Cape Dutch style are traced. Contemporary issues are also dealt with, including low-cost housing and urban pressures.Dr Hans Fransen and Andre van Graan help make the tour special, along with Dr Antonia Malan (see under Archaeology Tour).Fransen has been knighted in the Netherlands with the Ridder in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau for his work as an art and architecture historian. Since emigrating to South Africa in 1995, he has served as curator of the Stellenbosch and Groot Constantia museums, assistant director of the SA National Gallery, and director of the Michaelis Art Collection.Van Graan, a restoration architect who worked on both Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle, specialises in Edwardian and Art Deco architecture, focusing on the work of Sir Herbert Baker. He has led tours of Baker’s architecture, including a visit by the British Furniture History Society.Archaeology TourCape Insights’ Archaeology Tour explores the remarkable beauty of the Cape, and investigates the greatest diversity of five-million-year-old fossils to be found anywhere in the world.The spiritual beliefs of the San Bushman are also looked into, including their rituals and patterns of kinship, and how they survived for thousands of years before the arrival of colonisers.Areas visited include the West Coast National Park, Ramsar site Langebaan Lagoon, the Cedarberg Mountains, the Overberg and the “Whale Coast”.Among those who will interpret the earth’s secrets, providing information and entertainment, are Dr John Compton, Dr Antoineta Jerardino, Dr Antonia Malan, and Prof Brian Huntley.Compton, an associate professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Cape Town, is the author of The Rocks and Mountains of Cape Town.Jerardino, an archaeologist and heritage impact assessor for the South African Heritage Resources Agency, has been part of a team excavating open shell middens and rock shelters along the West Coast with the aim of reconstructing the ways San Bushmen hunter-gatherer groups exploited marine resources.Malan, a member of the Historical Archaeology Research Group, is actively involved in local heritage issues, is a trustee of Cape Town Heritage Trust, has chaired the Vernacular Architecture Society of South Africa (VASSA), and edits the VASSA Journal.Huntley, a former chief executive of the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) based at Kirstenbosch, spearheaded its transformation into a world-class organisation of high visibility and credibility. He founded the Southern African Botanical Diversity Network and acts as senior policy adviser to the Department of Environmental Affairs.History ToursCape Insights’ History Tours look back as far as the Stone Age and progress all the way through to the present. The tour includes visits to The Castle and The Slave Lodge. First-hand accounts of life on Robben Island are provided, while the past, from pre-history to present times, is unravelled through the stories of individuals living and working in one spot, all brought together in an 18th century wine cellar.Lecturers Dr Nigel Penn, Dr Antonia Malan and Dr Terence Rapke provide the expert information and analysis.Penn, an associate professor in the the University of Cape Town’s Department of Historical Studies, is the author of numerous books, including The Forgotten Frontier: Colonists and Khoisan on the Cape’s Northern Frontier in the 18th Century, and Robben Island: The Politics of Rock and Stone.Malan has pioneered historical archaeology, excavating a number of historical sites and devising new ways of using archival records to interpret remains, which have substantially contributed to the understanding of slavery and early European settlement at the Cape.Rapke is a classicist and ancient historian who has taught in Ghana, Australia, and South Africa, authoring numerous papers and reviews on Greek and Roman history along the way. For the past eight years he has led tours around the Western Cape, his translocated special interests being Cape history and wine.SAinfo reporter and Cape InsightsWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I’ve shared in the past how the pursuit of fish and game has led me to meet great folks, visit new places and share adventures big and small. A knock on a farmhouse door 20 years ago opened the opportunity to enjoy all three. I was following up on a “Hunting with Permission” sign I saw posted on an out-of-the way CRP field as I scouted for places to hunt pheasants. My research and plat map study eventually brought me to the Baker’s mud room and a conversation with Margaret, who was into her 70s when she first granted me permission to hunt the spot on the family farm. But not before sitting down in the kitchen for a chat.That was the first of 20 such talks around the kitchen table, as she kneaded dough or chopped vegetables as Margaret and I caught up on the previous year. I knocked on the door every October since, too late for most hunters who waited that late in the season to ask for one of the coveted permission slips. I always nervously eyed the same hand-written note Margaret re-taped to the storm door each autumn, after all the allotted slips for that season had been awarded to hunters, stating that it was too late to ask.Each fall it took a little longer for my knock to be answered, before was I ushered into a cluttered kitchen that always smelled of home cooking. Margaret would make me sit and squirm some years before revealing a permission slip that she had set aside for me, but I always left with more than I had come for, beyond the opportunity to walk the rich acreage she and her husband had set aside for wildlife each year. I was welcome and I was trusted, even after starting out as a stranger.I have hunted the patch on Thanksgiving morning carrying an infant in a backpack, paced it countless times with my wife on warm autumn days and hiked it back and forth on bitter cold December afternoons, following one of four English setters that have come and three gone, doing their best to sniff out roosters hiding in the grassy swales there over two decades.A younger version of Margaret met my tardy knock a few weeks ago, and I did a double take before her daughter informed me of her passing. Had I been on time this season I might have shared one more tableside chat, and perhaps some of her famous peanut brittle — which not even family members with the original recipe could replicate. Instead I stepped off the Baker’s doorstep for the final time clasping a note on torn pink paper stating that all the slips are accounted for. I left with memories of adventures great and small enjoyed in a field set aside for just that, and the person who opened the door to do so.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The USDA report Friday was mixed. Increased U.S. demand for corn and soybeans was supportive. Higher production and higher ending stocks were a negative for wheat. Corn ending stocks were reduced 95 million bushels for old crop, new crop ending stocks went down 145 million bushels. The yield remained the same for new crop at 168 bushels per acre. While the corn numbers could be viewed friendly the market action following the report did very little. Before the report corn was up 1 cent. In the minutes that followed the noon release, corn did manage to be up 10 cents. Those gains were not holding at 12:25 with corn down 4 cents. Soybeans could be considered a touch friendly. However, like corn the early gains did not hold. Before the report soybeans were up 12-14 cents. After the report they did breach the $12 mark on the July CBOT as they reached $12.08. Not holding the $12 would be a negative. Again the soybeans could not hold those gains. On the days’ high they were up 32 cents in the July and up 32 in the November. Soybean ending stocks were lowered in the old crop by 30 million bushels to 370 million bushels. New crop soybean ending stocks came out at 260 million bushels, down 45 million bushels. Soybean production was lowered 2 million tons in Brazil to 97 million tons, no surprise there. Argentina production did not change. That is a small surprise with production pegged at 56.5 million tons. At 12:25 soybeans were down 3 cents for old and up 2 cents for new soybeans.Wheat was considered negative with production above expectations for US wheat. Ending stocks also increased. A 12:25 wheat was down 12 cents. Prior to the report wheat was down 7 cents. July CBOT wheat needs to hold the $5 level if it is going to push through the strong resistance at $5.30 to $5.34.Today’s USDA report contains a multitude of numbers for corn, soybeans, and wheat. Numbers for the US and the rest of the world were released. With those numbers there is always a bias of which might be more important as well as the ones to ignore. Bottom line, while they provide fodder for market direction one item remains top in the minds of producers, traders, and market watchers. It boils down to weather. Now the weather to watch is in the U.S. growing regions, specifically the Midwest. While you may have been surprised this past month with the strength and depth of the current rally, this thought remains. For a moment, take everything you have seen with prices through Friday, June 3. Price activity up to that date had nothing to do with U.S. weather. It was dependent on South America weather and demand. Just this week, U.S. weather has become a dominant feature for grain prices. In coming weeks and through July and August you will be hearing much about U.S. weather. You are about to be bombarded with a legion of forecasts. Typically there will be a morning, noon, and overnight forecast. Now throw in the US and European models. That means in the passing of 24 hours there could be six different forecasts. Adding to the forecast fury is the reality of many different weather forecasters, each with their own slant to what is about to happen. If your head is about to explode you are not on an island. I was reminded this week that the European model is typically more accurate in dry conditions. Adding even more to the slurry of confusion surrounding weather reports is this typical comparison in the summer: How does the American model compare to the European model? Now once you throw all of these reports into the blender and what do you get? The reality that the forecasts are just that, forecasts. How quickly they change. Turn the calendar back to the summer of 2012 and the drought that affected many Ohio producers. Rain was coming – it was just two days away. And when those two days are now today, it was as dry as a bone. But rain is still coming in just two days. Then the frustration sets when it remains dry week after week.If the last month was a blur to you with all of the planting, spraying, and fieldwork taking place you are not alone. With the May 10 USDA supply and demand report, July CBOT corn closed at $3.18, up 10 ¾ cents. Last night July corn was $4.26 ½. On that same May 10 date, December CBOT corn was $3.87 ¾. Last night it was $4.33 ½. November CBOT soybeans on May 10 were $10.76, up 57 cents that day. Last night they closed at $11.52 ¾. In case you thought we are seeing a bull market for soybeans, you are correct. Reuters reports that soybeans are poised to close higher for the 9th week in a row. This is the longest bullish stretch in 43 years. The “dome of doom” forecast was less than three months ago. At that time corn below $3 and soybeans near $7 seemed a real possibility according to some market watchers.Midwest rains next week should be resistance for higher corn and soybean prices. Higher demand will be supportive for corn and soybeans. Next week we will see what wins — weather or demand.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorWASHINGTON (DTN) — Canada could announce a new list of retaliatory tariffs on more U.S. goods, including agricultural products, as early as next week. The tariffs would maintain parity with the U.S. over steel and aluminum tariffs the Trump administration imposed against Canada.David MacNaughton, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., highlighted the tariffs Monday as he spoke to members of the North American Agricultural Journalists at the group’s annual meeting in Washington. MacNaughton said Canadian officials are reconfiguring retaliatory tariffs to keep roughly $15 billion in products from the U.S. under either a 25% or 10% tariff.As a result of some exclusions and modifications, MacNaughton said, Canadian officials “will be refreshing that retaliation list,” likely within the next week, to maintain dollar-for-dollar retaliation.The retaliation will include “a significant number of agricultural products.” Possible new targets for tariffs could be apples, pork, ethanol and wine, he said. Once a list goes out, there will be up to 45 days of consultations to see which products would have the biggest impact on the U.S. and least impact on Canadians.“There are a variety of agricultural products we would look at and see to what degree they would impact Canadian producers and consumers,” MacNaughton said. “But I would think it would be a fairly long list.” He added, “I can’t imagine we wouldn’t at least put those kinds of products on consultation.”The Canadian tariffs are in response to “Section 232” tariffs placed on steel and aluminum imports by the U.S. last year. The Trump administration maintains the tariffs on imported steel and aluminum are needed for national security reasons, but the tariffs also helped force Canada and Mexico to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, which has become the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The USMCA still needs ratification by all three countries to go into effect.“On balance, I think the USMCA is a good deal,” MacNaughton said, adding Canadians want to remain a strong partner with the U.S.MacNaughton added that President Donald Trump has a new trade deal “which he indicates is the best trade agreement ever negotiated,” so the need for 232 tariffs should presumably be gone. “That is an important condition for us moving ahead.”Canada’s government is committed to passing the USMCA, but MacNaughton said the 232 tariffs on Canada and Mexico must be removed for the Canadian government to move the USMCA through its parliament. At the moment, MacNaughton said, there are no talks between the countries about dropping the Section 232 tariffs, only a “restating of positions.” Canadian officials argue the 232 tariffs are unjustified and illegal.Some Trump administration officials have talked about setting steel and aluminum quotas for Canada and Mexico, which MacNaughton said would translate into distorting trade. Under exclusions the U.S. has given already, China has more than 20 times the exclusions Canada was granted by the U.S.“When the stated purpose of these tariffs was to curb overproduction by countries like China, I find it difficult to understand why it is being imposed on Canada,” MacNaughton said.For 15 straight years, the U.S. had a surplus with Canada on imports-exports of steel products. MacNaughton noted, with a little irony, that the U.S. trade surplus ended last year when U.S. exports to Canada fell by $800 million. “So my question is, how’s that program working for you so far?”In terms of aluminum, MacNaughton said, at peak capacity, the U.S. aluminum industry can only produce about 25% of its aluminum needs. The question then becomes where does the U.S. want to get its aluminum?“If you put quotas on Canada, it necessitates that imports will come from other places like Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and how does that enhance U.S. national security?” the ambassador said. “So we think steel and aluminum quotas make no sense.”Canada is facing some time constraints on the USMCA, MacNaughton noted. The Canadian Parliament adjourns June 15 to campaign and will not reconvene until after elections in October. MacNaughton said it’s not a good idea to go into the election with the USMCA hanging out there unratified because it would stir the political pot.“If this is unresolved, if the 232 tariffs are still in place, then the discussion about our relationship with the United States of America will be a central part of the campaign, and it won’t be a really positive discussion, I think,” he said.The ambassador added that it’s important for the U.S. and Canada to maintain their geopolitical alliance because Russia is considering establishing military bases in the Arctic. China also continues to bring political pressure against Canada over the arrest of a Huawei executive by Canadian officials at the request of the U.S. China has arrested at least two Canadians as spies and also cut off imports of Canadian canola and petroleum. MacNaughton said it’s important during the U.S.-China talks for U.S. officials to help Canada address these issues, especially the arrests of Canadian citizens.“We face more challenges internationally today than I’ve ever seen in my life,” MacNaughton said. “It’s a time when the word ‘ally’ actually has substantial meaning.”While U.S. officials appear reluctant to deal with the tariffs, MacNaughton added U.S. officials are consistently seeking Canada’s help with Venezuela as well.“It is that kind of thing that is causing a real sort of irritation and befuddlement as to why?” MacNaughton said. “If our two countries can’t get along, what does that say to the rest of the world?”Approval of the USMCA in the U.S. Congress hinges partially on Mexico passing new labor laws that coincide with the trade deal. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., raised that point last week. MacNaughton said it was part of the agreement that Mexico would update its labor laws.“That was part of the negotiations, and I think an important part of it,” he said.Outside the tariff argument, critics of the USMCA deal don’t think Canada opens up its dairy or poultry markets enough under the new deal. Without an agreement, Canada would keep the Class 6 and Class 7 pricing schemes for milk and maintain the current wheat-grading program that discounts U.S. wheat. Mexico would also maintain substantial wage advantages in automobile manufacturing compared to Canada and the U.S., MacNaughton said.“I don’t think there is any question whatsoever that it (USMCA) is an improvement over the status quo,” he said.Chris Clayton can be reached at Chris.Clayton@dtn.comFollow him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Utpal Parrikar, the elder son of late Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, on Saturday criticised former Goa RSS chief Subhash Velingkar for questioning his political credentials and for “criticising Parrikar for the sake of publicity in the national media”. Mr. Utpal, now working for the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls, said that while he and his younger sibling had stayed away from politics when their father was alive, he always considered BJP party workers as part of his family and he would accept any responsibility the party offers him in the future. “When one Parrikar is there, others had to stay and help in the background, and that was what we were doing,” he told the press at the BJP headquarters here. “Only my work will decide what kind of material I am made of. My people of Panaji might decide what kind of material I am. People of Goa will decide what kind of material I am,” Mr. Parrikar said.Considered political mentor of late Parrikar, Mr. Velingkar, chief of Goa Suraksha Manch, was sacked as Goa RSS chief after he had fallen out with Mr. Parrikar over the continuation of grants to English medium primary schools Parrikar’s government in 2012. Since then, he was a critic of Parrikar and his government.Mr. Utpal said that criticising his father often fetched his detractors space in the national media.”I do not believe in virtue-signalling to Goans through TV. It is called ‘click bait’ news. You click a news item on YouTube, then you appear on TV, then on newspapers by abusing Mr. Parrikar. He was a national leader, so the criticism appears in national news,” Mr. Utpal said without naming Mr. Velingkar. Responding to criticism to his political entry as the foisting of “family raj” by the Opposition Congress, Mr. Utpal reiterated that he and his brother Abhijat deliberately kept away from politics until their father was alive.Mr. Utpal is presently the front-runner to contest the Panaji seat for the upcoming bypolls on May 19, the seat which fell vacant following the death of his father on March 17 following a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer. Parrikar represented the Panaji constituency from 1994 till his death with a break from 2014- 2017 when he was inducted as Defence Minister, only to come back and form a coalition government in Goa after the 2017 State Assembly election and having won the Panaji seat yet again in a by-election.
More than 6000 years ago, a small child in ancient Mesopotamia went wading in a nearby stream. He or she might have been bathing, playing, or merely cleaning up after answering nature’s call on the stream’s bank, a common practice in the days long before toilets. But the wader was out of luck; lurking in the water were the treacherous larvae of a parasite called Schistosoma. The larvae burrowed through the child’s skin and passed through the liver, before eventually settling in the intestines or urinary tract and growing into full-grown flatworms as long as 1 to 2 cm. In an acute case, these worms would have caused fever, bloody stools, and an enlarged liver. In a chronic case, the infected child would have grown anemic and wasted away, making him or her vulnerable to liver damage and bladder cancer.It is hard to say which symptoms the ancient Mesopotamian child suffered because no soft tissue remains on his or her skeleton today. The disease did leave a trace, however. The mature worms in the child’s pelvis laid eggs, and one of them stayed buried for thousands of years. Now, a team of researchers, led by paleopathologist Piers Mitchell of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, has unearthed the egg in a grave in the Tell Zeidan archaeological site in modern Syria.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Before the Tell Zeidan discovery, the oldest confirmed case of schistosomiasis was a 5200-year-old mummy in Egypt. The egg at Tell Zeidan is the first confirmation that the infection existed in Mesopotamia as well. “This finding is interesting because it further establishes the antiquity of the human-parasite association at an earlier date than is currently known,” says Charles Faulkner, a parasitologist from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, who wasn’t part of the study. To find the schistosome egg, Mitchell and his team collected sediment from the pelvic area of 26 skeletal remains from a cemetery of the Ubaid people, an ancient Mesopotamian farming culture. The researchers then mixed the sediment with water and passed it through a microsieve. When they examined the sieved particles from one grave under a light microscope, they spotted the 132-micrometer-long schistosome egg, the researchers report online today in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.Mitchell and his team also collected sediment from near the head and the feet of all skeletons as control samples. They found no eggs in these regions, which suggests that the schistosome wasn’t the result of modern contamination at the gravesite.The Syrian find throws light on the role of agricultural technology in increasing the spread of infectious disease among humans, Mitchell says. “A lot of different parasites—roundworms, hookworms, whipworms—find it difficult to infect you if you are moving a lot of time,” like nomadic hunter-gatherers do. This is because the populations of nomadic groups remain small, they don’t stick around long enough to contaminate any one water source, and they tend not to keep domestic animals such as sheep and dogs, which can be sources of parasites. Once humans turned to agriculture, however, they settled down, and their populations grew past the critical thresholds that infectious diseases require to sustain themselves.The places humans choose to settle may also have brought them in closer contact with parasites. The Ubaid people, who lived in Tell Zeidan between 6500 and 6000 years ago and buried their dead in the cemetery Mitchell studied, are known to have pioneered the use of irrigation to grow food on their arid land. Living near and working in those canals could have put humans right in the schistosome parasite’s path, allowing it to jump from its temporary hosts—freshwater snails—to people’s intestines, just as it continues to do today in Africa, Asia, and South America.Still, Scott Lawton, a parasitologist from Kingston University London, cautions against drawing too many conclusions about the source of the 6000-year-old infection based on the finding of a single egg. “A single egg simply tells us that the particular person was infected with schistosomiasis; so, drawing any major conclusions regarding route of infection is difficult. It could have been through irrigation, it could have been through natural water ways, it may have even been an infection picked up from travelling elsewhere in the Middle East or North Africa,” he says. “There is certainly more work to be done to disentangle the causes of infection in the Syrian gravesite.”*Correction, 20 June, 10:53 a.m.: An earlier version of this article incorrectly quoted Piers Mitchell as saying that pinworms, hookworms, and tapeworms find it hard to infect people when they are moving a lot of the time. His statement was about roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. The article has been corrected to reflect that.
*Update: The original story below generated so much attention on social media that we followed up with another article that noted reactions, a fuller explanation of the story and why certain people were not included, and an expanded list of most followed practicing research scientists on Twitter.Genomicist Neil Hall sparked an online tempest this summer by proposing a “Kardashian Index,” or K-index—a comparison of a scientist’s number of Twitter followers with their citations. Scientists with a high score on the index, named after the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, one of the most popular celebrities on the social media platform, should “get off Twitter” and write more papers, suggested Hall, who works at the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom.Though Hall says he meant his K-index lightheartedly, his article in Genome Biology sparked a Twitter storm of criticism. So just who are the Kardashians of science, and is Hall’s criticism justified? Hall tactfully declined to provide a K-index for anyone specific, but Science was curious about the names and the numbers. We have compiled a list of the 50 most followed scientists on the social media platform and their academic citation counts—and calculated their K-index by drawing on citation data from Google Scholar (A fuller explanation of how we compiled the list is below, at the end of the full story).The top three science stars of Twitter:(Based on followers)1.

For them, Twitter popularity can amplify their efforts in public outreach. A case in point is Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City and host of the science TV show Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. With more than 2.4 million followers and fewer than 200 citations, the astrophysicist is undoubtedly the top-ranking celebrity scientist on Twitter—and has the highest K-index of anyone on the list. Yet few would consider his Twitter fame unwarranted.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Although the index is named for a woman, Science’s survey highlights the poor representation of female scientists on Twitter, which Hall hinted at in his commentary. Of the 50 most followed scientists, only four are women. Astronomer Pamela Gay of Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, whose more than 17,000 Twitter followers put her 33rd on the list, says the result doesn’t surprise her because society still struggles to recognize women as leaders in science. Female scientists are also more likely to face sexist attacks online that can discourage their participation, she adds. “At some point, you just get fed up with all the ‘why you are ugly’ or ‘why you are hot’ comments.”Twitter stardom need not exclude research achievements, as our top 50 Twitter list shows. Many have thousands of citations and seven of the people listed also appear on two recent citation-based rankings of influential scientists, the 2014 Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers list and Scholarometer’s top 100 authors ranking. Even so, most high-performing scientists have not embraced Twitter. Science sampled Twitter usage among 50 randomly chosen living scientists from the Scholarometer list. Only a fifth of the scientists have an identifiable Twitter profile.Even some who do dislike the medium. Chad Mirkin of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, the highest ranking chemist on Scholarometer’s list, considers Twitter a waste of precious time that he’d much prefer spending on reading and writing scientific papers. “A lot of social media is … time spent aggrandizing one’s accomplishment,” says Mirkin, who registered on Twitter just to keep up with his son’s tennis scores. The linguist Noam Chomsky, the most famous living scientist by some measures, has also repeatedly criticized social media for reducing serious public discourse to, well, 140 characters.So why do the highly cited researchers who are also Twitter science stars make the time to engage in social media? Geneticist Eric Topol of the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, California (17th place; 44,800 followers), who boasts more than 150,000 citations, says he once thought the social media platform was only for “silly stuff” like celebrity news. Then he tried Twitter during a TEDMED conference in 2009, as a tool to gauge reactions to his talk. Now, he starts his workday browsing through his Twitter feed for news and noteworthy research in his field. During the day, he checks Twitter several times and spends another 10 to 20 minutes on an evening roundup. “It actually may be the most valuable time [I spend] in terms of learning things that are going on in the world of science and medicine,” says Topol, who reciprocates by daily tweeting papers, presentations, and more to his followers.Psychologist Daniel Gilbert of Harvard University (36th; 15,500 followers) views Twitter as a natural extension of his other public outreach efforts, which include hosting the PBS science documentary, This Emotional Life. For him, Twitter is a virtual classroom connecting netizens worldwide who are interested in the psychology of happiness. “It’s another teaching tool,” he says.Like Topol, Jonathan Eisen of the University of California, Davis (25th; 24,900 followers), says he did not start out as a Twitter fan. An enthusiast of open access and exchange, Eisen participated in scientific discussion forums, such as newsgroups, even before the days of the World Wide Web. But Twitter’s 140-character word limit initially seemed both “arbitrary and useless” to him, he says. It was for purely coincidental reasons—checking out details of a visit by famed cyclist Lance Armstrong to Davis, California—that the microbiologist signed up for an account in 2008.But after 20 minutes of perusing news on the social media platform that day, Eisen says, he was hooked. “In a minute, I can skim through a hundred Twitter posts. … It’s pretty amazing for getting a feel of what’s going on,” says Eisen, who now daily spends anywhere from 5 minutes to 8 hours on Twitter, in addition to running a blog. Yet Eisen also has close to 42,000 citations under his belt.Eisen says that consistently tweeting ongoing research at his lab has helped attract graduate students as well as two grants for science communication. He suggests an active social media presence might even aid applications for research funding, as it demonstrates a commitment to public outreach. But the spontaneity of Twitter can backfire, too. Eisen, for one, has live-tweeted brusque criticism at academic conferences that came back to bite him. “You can seem like a jerk, an idiot, or both,” he says.The temporal, attention-grabbing nature of Twitter posts also makes them ill-suited for nuanced, in-depth scientific discussions. Gilbert says he prefers to tweet materials that appeal to a general audience, rather than complex scientific papers. Likewise, Eisen reserves lengthy discussions for old-fashioned phone calls and uses Twitter to instead link to blog posts and other, longer materials.Still, he and others credit Twitter as a crowdsourcing platform for new ideas and research. Topol says he relies on the “army of Web crawlers” on Twitter to bring him the latest, most noteworthy research in medical science. His own tweets, mostly about papers and presentations he finds interesting, also form an archive that can be extracted with a little tech savvy.The social media tool also functions as “another dimension of peer review,” Topol says. Instead of waiting for the old letters to the editor, scientists can go to Twitter for rapid critique of their research. “Authors who are not willing to get engaged on social media are missing out on a significant opportunity,” he says.The K-index gets it wrong by suggesting that science communication and research productivity are incompatible, says Albert-László Barabási, a network theorist at Northeastern University in Boston who studies social media. Research on altmetrics—alternative metrics for measuring scientific impact—has found no link between social media metrics such as number of tweets and traditional impact metrics such as citations, he says. “We should really not mix the two … because they really probe different aspects of a scientist’s personality.”For his part, Hall says others have read too much into his satire, which originated after seeing conference organizers factor Twitter follower numbers into speaker considerations. “I don’t mean to criticize anyone for having a lot of Twitter followers,” he says. “My criticism is only of using it as a metric on research scientists.”It might be premature, in any case, for the scientific community to worry about “Science Kardashians” when it faces a more pressing challenge of staying relevant in public discussions. Even Tyson’s Twitter popularity is dwarfed by that of the real Kim Kardashian, who boasts 10 times as many followers.*SURVEY METHODSThe list of most followed scientists compiled here is far from scientific. To identify Twitter science stars, we began with celebrity scientists such as Tyson and checked out which scientists they followed. We also referenced online lists of scientists to follow on Twitter, such as this one by The Huffington Post. If we’ve missed someone who belongs on the top 50 list, do let us know in the comment section. Follower number is, of course, a very crude proxy of influence on Twitter, but it’s the most accessible metric for the purpose of this story.The question of who counts as a scientist is itself a matter of debate. As a general guideline, we included only those who have completed a Ph.D. degree and published at least one peer-reviewed paper in a peer-reviewed journal. As an exception to this rule, we excluded professional journalists who fit the above criteria.We recorded the number of Twitter followers for our list on 15 September. To tally the number of citations for each scientist, we over the past month looked up their Google Scholar profiles or, for those without a profile, used estimates produced by the Publish or Perish software, developed by business professor Anne-Wil Harzing of ESCP Europe. Due to limitations of both methods, the citation numbers are only rough estimates. For example, there’s no easy way to distinguish physicist Brian Cox of the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom from physiologist Brian Cox of the University of Toronto in Canada in calculating the former’s citation count. Seven on our top 50 list appear on either the 2014 Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers list (*) or the Scholarometer’s top 100 authors (+) ranking, and each is noted with a symbol.The Kardashian Index is calculated as follows: In his commentary, using data gathered on 40 scientists, Hall derived a formula for calculating the number of Twitter followers a scientist should have given one’s citation count. The K-index is the ratio of the scientist’s actual follower number to the follower number “warranted” by the citation count.An Excel document with all the data collected is here.The top 50 science stars of TwitterRead the full story on this list.1.

Doha: World’s top athletes will aim to dish out a spirited show when the World Athletics Championship kicks-off from Friday. For India, the event hasn’t been too fruitful as only Anju Bobby George had managed a medal in long jump at the 2003 edition of the Games in Paris. However, a lot will be expected from ace sprinter Dutee Chand and middle-distance runner Jinson Johnson this time round.Dutee had a dream outing at the World University Championship where she bagged a gold following which the IAAF had invited her to join the Indian team. Dutee will once again feature in the 100 metre event and looking at her form in the recent past, a medal could be expected from her. India had also suffered a jolt when Neeraj Chopra and Hima Das had to skip the event due to injury. While javelin thrower Neeraj is not taking part as he has been doing light training since May, having undergone an elbow surgery, Hima pulled out due to a lower back injury after being named in the initial team.In Neeraj’s absence, all eyes will be on another javelin thrower Shivpal Singh while Annu Rani will lead in the women’s category of the discipline. Meanwhile, Tejaswin Shankar has also decided to give the event a miss, which is another blow for India.In such a scenario, Asian Games gold medalist Johnson is expected to bring some smiles on the Indians’ faces. He is currently training with his coach in USA. Long jumper M Sreeshankar, who has recovered from an injury, will also try to deliver his best. In the National Open Championship last year, Sreeshankar had registered a national record after a jump of 8.11 and 8.20 metre.In the 4×400m relay and mixed relay events, Mohammad Anas, Noh Nirmal, Alex Antony, Harsh Kumar, Amoj Jacob, KS Jeevan and Dharun Ayyasamy will lead the Indian challenge. On the other hand in shot put event, Tejinderpal Singh Toor, who had clinched gold in the Asian Games, can also be considered as a medal prospect for India. dutee chandJinson JohnsonTejinderpal Singh ToorWorld Athletics Championships First Published: September 26, 2019, 9:21 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

NEW YORK – The board of directors of the “N.Y. Greek American” issued the following statement directed to the Greek-American community concerning the selling of the soccer club’s building.Follows the announcement:JUNE 2018 Dear Greeks of America,We believe that, almost everyone knows about our Association building (25-33 Astoria Blvd, Astoria, NY), which was bought by our old members (most no longer living) to house the “N.Y. Greek American” Soccer Club and covering its financial needs from the Club’s net income and from the rents of the two apartments in the building. The old ones had also predicted that when there was no “N.Y. Greek American” the building would go to the Greek nursing home facility St. Michael’s Home, Yonkers, NY.However, today’s “trustees” (25-33 Astoria Bulevard Corporation), the company that the old ones had set up to manage and protect (…) the building, after they had introduced their own “new” members to the company, because many old members had died and thus acquired the majority of the members, voted to have the right to sell the building and, in addition, to have the right and to sell it to “themselves and others.” As it was finally done! Our building, the source of our income, has now been sold to one of the trustees – the “trustworthy” (assumed…) and the son of another trustee!Our Athletic Club “N.Y. Greek American” has now lost its roof and its source of revenue! Not only that, but eight years before the building was sold, the trustees did not give Greek American ANY of the club’s income and apartment rentals, with the false reasoning that… “N.Y. Greek American… no longer existed.”In the eight years that the “Confident …” argued that … “Greek America no longer existed,” not only did it EXIST but was also five years in the finals of the US Amateur Soccer Federation and in 2014 WON THE TITLE! In addition, during those years, it won three times the COSMOPOLITAN SOCCER LEAGUE, the best and most historic Football Federation of New York – the former German American League! In addition, during those eight years that they said that “we did not exist,” we, apart from our first championship team we also have a reserve team and over 30 veterans teams!There has been a lot of writing over the years about the subject of the building, which “N.Y. Greek America” lost, but also about the “trustees” and masters, those responsible for “N.Y. Greek American” losing its building, its roof, and property! Nevertheless, it has never been written, so far, who are these “trustees” and “trustworthy”…In our announcement, we will first reveal their names!PAVLOS BETZIOS, old footballer of the substitution team of “N.Y. Greek America” and then an important player of the Association for many years and knowledgeable of his history. First started the campaign that “N.Y. Greek America” no longer had any reason to exist and that he had to end his activity and give his building to the Nursing Home, which was strongly opposed by the living members of the club, first with George Lazaridis.GEORGIOS LAZARIDIS, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of 25-33 Astoria Bulevard Corporation. Former soccer player for New Greece and NY Atlas, NY Atlas agent, and after “N.Y. Greek American,” who initially reacted strongly to the sale. Eventually, however, he himself and members of his family were the buyers of the building.IOANNIS MANIS, NY Atlas agent – one of the two buyers.ALEKOS AMANATIDIS, agent of “N.Y. Greek American” for many years.CONSTANTINOS GIGOS, former soccer player of the Group A N.Y. Greek American.STEVE IEROM, footballer of the junior team of “N.Y. Greek American” in the 1960s and later “N.Y. Greek American.”DIMITRIOS MAGGANAS, former soccer player of the 1st team of “N.Y. Greek American” and leader.DAMIANOS NANOS, former soccer player of the 1st team of “N.Y. Greek American.”PRAXITELES XYLAS, former agent of “N.Y. Greek American” with respectable contribution for many years.PANAGIOTIS TAGIOS, former soccer player of the 1st team of “N.Y. Greek American.”DIMITRIOS TERTIS, former soccer player of the 1st and 2nd group of “N.Y. Greek American.”By decision of all the above trustees – “trusted…” our building has already been SOLD to Mr. IOANNIS MANI and KYRIAKOS LAZARIDIS oldest player of the “Ν.Υ. Greek American” and a member of the Board of Directors, for a while, also the president of “trustees” GEORGE LAZARIDIS, instead of $1,200,000 (one million two hundred thousand dollars), only half (approximately) was given to the Nursing Home.The “N.Y. Greek American” did not even get a penny! Detailed review of the sale of our building, WAS NEVER GIVEN!RESALE!And while they were saying and asserting… “confident” that our building would be at our disposal even for ten years after the sale (with this false certificate they deceived some of the other trustees to agree to “Instead, in just a few months, buyers resell it – already in a contract…” – with an Italian owner and other real estate at Astoria Boulevard, Astoria, NY, with an amount of $2.5 million (two and a half million dollars), i.e. with a profit of $1.3 million in only a few months!DECISION! Based on all of the above, the Board of Directors of our Association “N.Y. GREEK AMERICAN” HAS DECIDED THAT ALL OF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED FIRST TRUSTEES,PAUL BETZIOS, GEORGIOS LAZARIDIS, JOHN MANI, ALEKOS AMANATIDIS, CONSTANTINOS GIGOS, STEVE IEROM, DIMITRIOS MAGGANAS, DAMIANOS NANOS, PRAXITELIS XYLAS, PANAGIOTIS TAGIOS, DIMITRIOS TERTIS plus the other buyers of the building KYRIAKOS LAZARIDIS, KOSTAS MALLIOS ARE “BANNED FOR LIFE” from the course and history of the Athletic Association “N.Y. Greek American,” and they will not be accepted again in the “N.Y. Greek American” Athletic Club as long as they live!!!HISTORY CONTINUES!The Family Athletic Association “N.Y. GREEK AMERICAN” has existed since 1946!It has existed in all the past eight years in which the “trustworthy” have spread the falsehood (!) that it did not…IT DOES EXIST AND IT CONTINUES!!!We are already looking for another location in Astoria to transfer and store the MANY Cups of Glory and Majesty that we have won all over America throughout all these decades, plus our framed photographs that still decorate the walls of the already sold and… re-sold building.WE ARE CERTAIN that the Greek Community WILL STAND BY OUR SIDE and help us again-STAND ON OUR OWN TWO FEET.The Family Athletic Association “N.Y. GREEK AMERICAN” HAS GLORIFIED the Greek Community for the past 72 years, longer than many other Greek organizations. It is part of the History of the Greeks of America.THE COMMUNITY WILL AGAIN STAND ON THE SIDE OF “N.Y. GREEK AMERICAN”FOR A NEW PATH TO GLORY AND GREATNESS FOR HELLENISM IN AMERICA.Sincerely,THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF “N.Y. GREEK AMERICAN”TweetPinShare33 Shares
Virat Kohli endured a horrific series the last time India toured England in 2014. In ten innings the Indian captain could only manage 134 runs at a disappointing average of 13.50 as he was continuously troubled by the English swing bowlers.However, since then Kohli has transformed himself into a force which has become the bowlers’ nightmare. In 37 Tests since the disastrous 2014 tour, Kohli has played 37 Tests and scored 15 centuries, including six double hundreds. During this period, Kohli has amassed 3699 runs at an incredible average of 64.89 and has also scored 7 fifties.And former Australian great Glenn McGrath said it’s time for Kohli to score runs in England as India aim to win their first series in England since 2007.”For Virat, he has done everywhere else, but in England… He is a quality player without a doubt, a class act, has got all the shots. He is quite aggressive and not a timid player. It is time he shows that he can score runs in English conditions too,” McGrath said.”It is a little bit tougher with the ball moving around. Australia used to be quick, bouncy whereas in England it is seam movement. If he can adapt and adjust to the conditions, he can score. When he is playing well he is as good as anyone going around.”Virat Kohli since England Tests of 2014: 15 hundreds, 3699 runs in 37 TestsIn 2014, English bowlers exploited Kohli’s weakness of chasing deliveries outside off stump as he was caught behind stumps 6 out of 10 innings. The Indian batsman was seen helpless against the swing bowling of James Anderson as the pacer dismissed him four times in 10 innings.advertisementMcGrath feels how Indian batsmen will have to “get on top” of the swing and seam of the seasoned Anderson to brighten India’s chances in the series.”Anderson is going to be a big player. It is how the Indian batsmen face his swing and bowling in English conditions. If they can get on top of Anderson, that is going to make a big difference for them. I think for them he is definitely going to be the key,” McGrath said.The Australian, who is director of coaching at MRF Pace Foundation, said though the Indian bowlers have been doing well in recent times, batting remains their strength.”It is going to be interesting. I think India started really well in England, obviously it is in the ODIs and T20s. The batting line-up has always been their strength. Just heard about injuries to (Jasprit) Bumrah and Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar). So it will be interesting to see their bowling line-up, to see who comes in and takes the load.England 2104 to England 2018: India make big strides in Test cricket”In recent times they have been bowling really well. Injuries do happen, it is going to make it a little tougher. But their strength is their batting,” he added.He said though the spinners have done well for India and would have a role to play in England, the fast bowlers would be crucial.”Spinners have done well for India. Shane Warne loved bowling there. He always said if it seamed, it will turn. In English conditions it does seam a bit and Warne has had success there. India is going to need their bowlers, their spinners firing if they have to win the series.”McGrath said not having Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah weakens India’s bowling attack.”Having two spinners in the line-up, if that is going to be the best bowling attack it is fine. I am interested to see who are bowlers that they have. (Umesh) Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami, who’s your backup quicks going in.”With Bhuvi and Bumrah out, it creates a bit of a hole. The first Test is going to be pretty important.”India vs England: Will India’s top-order overcome old issues in Test series?McGrath spoke about the difference Ishant Sharma’s experience could make.”He (Ishant) has got a lot of experience. And, that sort of makes a big difference when you know how to get wickets. He is not probably bowling as quick as when he first started. Have to see if he has the same wicket-taking potential as what he had when he first started. Yadav has got a bit of pace. They need him for the whole series.”… Obviously spinners are always pretty handy. But medium-pacers and quick bowlers in England, if you bowl well, with the Duke ball and in those conditions, it is going to be…” he added.

Sushma was so scared, she started crying: Kaur and Mandhana on World Cup ‘ghost’Indian T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur and opener Smriti Mandhana recently appeared on the online chat show ‘What the Duck’ where they shared a number of stories related to the team and their teammatesadvertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiMay 22, 2019UPDATED: May 22, 2019 10:08 IST Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur shared a number of stories (Screengrab: @Viu India Youtube)HIGHLIGHTSSmriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur recently made an appearance on Youtube chat show ‘What the Duck’Mandhana and Kaur revealed what happened when they were staying at an eerie hotel during the World CupThe duo said that some of the team members were haunted by ghostsIndia women cricketers Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana have long been the pillars of the Indian team. While Smriti is currently the No.1 ODI cricketer in the world, T20I captain Kaur’s attacking batting style has made her a household name in the country. Kaur’s fiery batting has made many believe that she is a fearless cricketer. Though according to Mandhana it’s not true.The duo recently appeared on the online chat show ‘What the Duck’ where they shared a number of stories related to the team and their teammates. When the host asked Kaur whether she was afraid of anything at all, a smiling Mandhana jumped in and said that her senior was afraid of ‘ghosts’. She also added that when she tried to scare Kaur, she ‘punished’ her junior by forcing her to share the room with her.”We were playing the World Cup in England. Harry (Harmanpreet) Di is most afraid of ghosts. I myself am a bit in the same league but her fear is on an extreme level. So, I am always itching to scare her. So one day I told her all the ghost stories which were related to the hotel we were staying in. I had heard about a number of ghost-related incidents with our teammates. So I told her everything and she had to listen to all of it because she was undergoing treatment. But later she punished me by forcing me to sleep with her during the night,” said a laughing Mandhana.advertisement”We all had single rooms and the hotel itself felt quite eerie. 3 of us were sleeping in one room but I didn’t let them sleep all night because I myself couldn’t,” explained Kaur.The discussion prompted the host to ask whether there was a ghost at the hotel in reality. Though Smriti and Harmanpreet agreed that they didn’t personally have any such experience, some of their fellow teammates did claim to have encountered ghosts during their stay at the hotel.”We didn’t see any ghost but 2-3 of our teammates said that they felt its presence. For example, Sushma Verma kept saying that the ghost had kept her captive for an hour and didn’t let go. And she actually cried for an hour (Sushma Verma). So who knows, there might have been something,” concluded Mandhana.Also Read | I’ve tried to copy Smriti Mandhana since she used to wear glasses: Riyan ParagAlso Read | Hockey India in awe of Jemimah Rodrigues’ dribbling skills Also Read | USA women’s cricket team creates history by sealing twin berths in global qualifiersFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

On Thursday, hereditary chiefs struck a deal with the RCMP to abide with an interim court injunction by not blocking access to the work site.In exchange, the chiefs said members of the First Nation would not be arrested and the Unist’ot’en camp would be allowed to remain intact.Chief Na’Moks said they made the temporary agreement to protect Wet’suwet’en members, some of whom were already traumatized after another checkpoint was dismantled and 14 people were arrested on Monday.The Unist’ot’en is a house group within the five clans that make up the Wet’suwet’en First Nation.The agreement applies to an interim court injunction, which is meant to prevent anyone from impeding the company’s work until the defendants, which include members of the Unist’ot’en camp, file a response.Some members of the Wet’suwet’en say the company does not have authority to work on their territory without consent from the nation’s hereditary clan chiefs. SMITHERS, B.C. – The RCMP lifted an exclusion zone Friday that cut off public access to a forest service road in northern British Columbia at the site of a confrontation this week between Mounties and opponents of a natural gas pipeline.Police say the public and media can travel on the road in the Wet’suwet’en First Nation territory but the RCMP will be patrolling it to ensure everyone’s safety.Earlier Friday, a convoy of work trucks passed through the police roadblock heading to the Unist’ot’en healing camp to dismantle barriers that had blocked workers from starting construction on the Coastal GasLink pipeline. TransCanada Corp. says it has signed benefit-sharing agreements with the elected councils of all 20 First Nations along the pipeline route. Its Coastal GasLink pipeline would run from northern B.C. through the Wet’suwet’en territory to LNG Canada’s $40 billion export terminal in Kitimat.Coastal GasLink president Rick Gateman said the agreement lays the groundwork for the company to have free access to the area for pre-construction and construction work on the pipeline.The RCMP said in a news release Thursday that police would continue “roving patrols” of the Morice West Forest Service Road.The Mounties said they also set up a temporary RCMP detachment on the road that will be staffed by general duty police officers who “will undergo cultural awareness training on the Wet’suwet’en traditions and will have enhanced training in conflict resolution.”

Sightings have been posted to social media before being shared with the RCMP, that has caused delays in the investigation.According to MyGrandePrairieNow.com, the RCMP have confirmed the pair were seen in a Fairview Gas Station on July 20. The sighting was not reported to the RCMP until several days later. This is the second confirmed sighting of the pair in Alberta. The last confirmed sighting of the pair was on July 22 in Gillam Manitoba. The pair are wanted in connection with three homicides in Northern B.C. that all occurred during the week of July 15, 2019. GILLAM, M.B. – RCMP have started to search the Nelson River near Gillam and Fox Lake Cree Nation in the hunt for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.On Sunday the RCMP confirmed they called in Underwater Recovery Team on Friday after finding RCMP officers searching from a helicopter, located a damaged aluminum boat on the shore of the Nelson River.Based on this new information, five members of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team (URT) were immediately deployed.

The doors to a Canadian education have now been opened for students in the Caribbean island nation of Curaçao.Located about 65 kilometres north of Venezuela in the Lesser Antilles, Curaçao is known for its beaches, coral reefs and a strong education system with students eager to leave the island for their post-secondary education.A memorandum of understanding signed on Feb. 16 made Brock the first university in Canada to implement a scholarship agreement with the country.The agreement will enable Curaçaoan students to use their nation’s educational loan program (similar to OSAP in Ontario) to pay for an international education at Brock. The students will also have full access to Brock University’s various scholarship programs.“Brock is very excited by this new partnership as it establishes a mutually beneficial relationship through education and the exchange of knowledge,” said Director of Brock International Leigh-Ellen Keating.The Ministry of Education in Curaçao believes that the geopolitical position of their country, unique socio-economic resources and national commitment to sustainable economic growth through renewable energy provides valuable learning and research opportunities for both Curaçao and Brock.“Brock would like to celebrate and build on the success of its Curaçaoan student population and we look forward to future students from the island choosing to make Brock their educational home,” said Keating.Curaçao joins Brock’s growing international community representing more than 100 countries on campus.
CITIZENS OF VENEZUELA’S socialist revolution have grown accustomed to long lines for everything from bread to buying a car.But 26-year-old Daniela Rodriguez hopes this line will be her last.Like some 50 other college students and graduates, she’s been lounging for the past three days on the cement sidewalks of a busy Caracas office district waiting for a consulate stamp that she hopes will be her ticket to a brighter future. Her destination? Ireland a country she knows almost nothing about. Not that it matters.Daniela Rodriguez laughs with friends as she waits outside Ireland’s consulate in Caracas. (Pic: AP Photo/Fernando Llano)“I’ll blindly go anywhere,” said Rodriguez, who has been unable to find work as a journalist since graduating college in 2010, instead working as a sales clerk at a clothing store. “Here you kill yourself just to get nowhere, but outside Venezuela in two years your effort pays off.”The sentiment is widely shared by Venezuela’s best and brightest, who are abandoning their homeland in droves rather than wait for a punishing currency crisis, record shortages and 50 per cent inflation to ease. But not everyone is fleeing the madness. Some Venezuelans are posing as students and recycling on the black market increasingly scarce hard currency meted out at the official exchange rate to pay for schooling abroad.Amid the desperate search for opportunities abroad, Ireland has emerged as an almost ideal escape.The country has long attracted language students from all over the world, and unlike the US, Australia and Canada, Venezuelans don’t need a visa to enter the European Union.And while Spain, for years the preferred destination for Latin American emigrants, has youth unemployment of above 50 per cent, the Irish economy is recovering steadily from Europe’s financial crisis. Venezuelans already studying there report that it’s easy to find work. “It’s very sad that having invested so much in institutions to develop quality human resources we can’t take advantage of them to add dynamism to the economy,” said Anitza Freitez, a Caracas-based demographer who has studied migratory trends.She estimates the number of Venezuelans living abroad jumped 12 per cent between 2005 and 2010, a pride-shattering reversal for a country whose oil-fueled prosperity made it a magnet for immigrants from southern Europe and South America for much of the last half-century.Ties with Ireland stretch back to Venezuela’s 19th century war of independence, one of Liberator Simon Bolivar’s closest aides was an Irish military officer named Daniel O’Leary. But until recently fewer than 200 Venezuelans were living there, according to Freitez’s research.Now, Venezuelans rival Brazilians, a country with a population seven times larger, as the biggest foreign student population at many language schools in Ireland.And the exodus keeps building.Seda College in Dublin said it received 7,640 unique visitors to its website from Venezuela in January, equal to a third of total inquiries for all of 2013. MeQuieroIr.com, or “I Want To Go,” a Venezuelan website that provides information to people looking to emigrate, also reported record traffic this month at twice the normal levels.So popular has Dublin become among Venezuela’s youth that leading satirical website El Chiguire Bipolar recently joked it had become Venezuela’s safest city, a reference to the violent crime that overruns Venezuelan streets, another factor driving people overseas.A man completes a form outside Ireland’s consulate in Caracas. (Pic: AP Photo/Fernando Llano)“This isn’t like previous waves we saw after elections,” said Esther Bermudez, MeQuieroIr.com’s founder, who moved to Montreal in 2007 fed up with currency controls that made it impossible to do business with advertisers and suppliers abroad. “Interest in leaving seems more sustained, less emotional, as people come to grips with the structural crisis the country is facing.”That disillusionment can be felt outside the Honorary Consulate in Caracas, where for the past six months, and more intensely since the economy took a turn for the worst in November, students gather every day before dawn.Sometimes the lines are 200 deep, drawing complaints from passing office workers and forcing a rotating cadre of self-appointed leaders to maintain a 24-hour vigil so that nobody jumps the line when the consulate, which operates out of a law office, opens between 10am and noon.They’re all there to cross the same Rubicon: obtaining a stamp certifying their enrollment letter sent from Ireland.With that paper in hand, they can navigate the bureaucratic labyrinth created by a decade of rigid currency controls and buy hard currency at the official exchange rate of 6.3 bolivars per US dollar, 12 times cheaper than on the black market.Ireland’s foreign ministry told says that it has also detected a small number of fraudulent applications but wouldn’t provide details. The talk among the students and hired fixers on the sidewalk is that the consul’s stamp was recently counterfeited.Early morning queues at the Irish consulate. (Pic: AP Photo/Fernando Llano) Unlike other foreign students, Venezuelans also face obstacles opening bank accounts in Ireland because of fear they could be used to illegally transfer money, said Tiago Mascarenhas, Seda’s marketing director.Some students, while acknowledging that the system lends itself to fraud, say the real abuses are being carried out by President Nicolas Maduro’s government, which has allowed supermarket shelves go bare and inflation to skyrocket even as it sits atop the world’s largest oil reserves.“If the government is suspicious then they should present proof,” said Rodriguez, who says that a third of her close friends have already left Venezuela. “It’s not our fault the country isn’t progressing.”Read: Higgins to meet Chilean president on first full day of South America trip >Read: President and Tánaiste express sadness at death of Hugo Chavez >
Really and truly it’s about the good, honest, decent, hardworking British members of society, whether they be Muslim or non-Muslim. They are the ones that have suffered the most.He also complained about the examination of his genitals ahead of his court appearance, adding: “I cried like a baby, you know, into my sleeve.”When he was reprimanded by judge Nigel Sweeney for interrupting, he replied: “Stop trying to stifle the truth.”But he later praised the judge after Sweeney let him have his handcuffs removed in the video-link room at Belmarsh prison, on the understanding that two prison officers sit beside him.“That man who is wearing the white wig and the red robe. May Allah bless that man because he has had the courage to do something that many wouldn’t have had the courage to do,” he said.Adebolajo’s case will return to the Old Bailey on June 28, when it will join up with that of his co-accused, Adebowale.- © AFP, 2013 ONE OF THE TWO men accused of murdering a British soldier in London repeatedly interrupted his bail hearing today to shout “I’m a soldier” and accuse the judge of stifling the truth.The video-link connecting Michael Adebolajo, 28, from prison to the Old Bailey central criminal court was eventually switched off after the judge asked him several times to be quiet.Adebolajo is accused along with another man, 22-year-old Michael Adebowale, of hacking soldier Lee Rigby to death in broad daylight near a barracks in Woolwich, south east London, two weeks ago.He is also accused of the attempted murder of two police officers and possession of a firearm.In his second appearance in court since being charged on Saturday, Adebolajo was still wearing a plaster cast on his left arm after being shot by police at the scene of the murder.He has been seen by psychiatrists five times – three times in hospital and at least twice since he was discharged on Friday – and has been declared fit for interview each time, the court heard.Defence lawyer David Gottlieb said: “It’s the prosecution’s case that he is completely sane. He doesn’t suffer from any mental disorder at all. Mr Hamza agrees with that”.Adebolajo asked at an earlier hearing to be referred to as Mujaahid Abu Hamza.While his mental state was discussed, he interjected: “I’m not familiar with this legal jargon. I’m a soldier, not a lawyer.”Wearing a burgundy top with a pink jumper, Adebolajo complained that the hearing was not about him, “even though I played a major part in proceedings”. He said:
Of course, United handled the situation appallingly. They were slow to respond when everybody was talking about it. When their chief executive, Oscar Munoz, came out to apologise at first, he used terrible jargon and ‘legalese’.He said he was sorry for having to “re-accommodate” the customer, not for the forceful extraction, and said he would be “reaching out” to the man. Not the language of a man who was named PR Week’s communicator of the year only one month ago.Munoz also said in a staff email that the guy was “disruptive and belligerent”. Even if he was, the airline lost that argument as soon as the video went viral. United eventually changed its tone, but only after the incident attracted a massive amount of media attention.The magnitude of that particular PR crisis was enormous, but it shows that it could happen to anyone. All companies should learn to conduct themselves properly in the eye of a social media storm.Here’s my advice for how companies should handle such a scenario:Swift actionHow quickly you respond to a crisis will define how the whole thing plays out. In the United case, the airline forgot that the court of public opinion and the court of law are two completely different things.In many crises, the lawyers usually get to the chief executive before the communicators do. Then you end up with a legal response to the issue like the one Munoz first gave, which only exacerbates the problem and the crisis rolls on.The trick is to ask yourself: how quickly can you act on a complaint and how can you take a substantive, caring response to the problem?If you act in a human way and acknowledge the problem that you’re involved in, you’ll be able to deal with it better.It will still be painful. In some cases, you’ll have to pay compensation or suck up to some really ugly accusations. The quicker you do that, the better.Go offlineWhen you first start to get complaints online, you should try as quickly as possible to take the conversation offline, especially if it’s only a handful of angry customers at first. You don’t want to get involved in a ping-pong war with irate Twitter users.When you take the conversation offline, you can deal with the issue in a more personal manner. It shows the customer that you actually care about their problem.It’s important to remember, as well, that when your brand is talking to somebody through a social media account, the employee messaging back should always identify themselves.When people are in trouble, they want to deal with an actual person, not some kind of faceless Wizard of Oz. If somebody knows they’re talking to Jack at All Good Tales, the interaction is always easier than if they’re talking to a corporate edifice. A woman using her smartphone Source: Oliver Berg/DPA/PA ImagesDon’t try to be cleverI started my career as a press officer for the Progressive Democrats. During my time, I had to deal with a number of scandals. You can have a plan in place for all sorts of scenarios, but when you’re in the middle of a crisis, the first thing that comes under savage attack is your judgement.Your brain works in really different in that situation – when senior people come under fire, it’s a really difficult and lonely place to be. Even the most well-thought-out plan can go out the window.Think of that famous Mike Tyson quote, “Everybody’s got a plan till they get a punch in the mouth.”What happens to lots of people when they’re in the middle of a crisis is they think: what’s the minimum I can get away with? Instead, they should find the maximum they’re willing to give to get the problem to go away.There’s a concept I talk about in crisis communications courses I’ve done where I say, “Imagine if had to write a cheque so the problem would go away, but you could only do it once. How large would that cheque be?”It reminds people that, in a crisis, they’re not supposed to be trying to get away with as little as possible.Senior management should all sing from the same hymn sheet. They should act swiftly and try to make one big decision to make the whole thing go away. If you need to be sorry, be sorry. Don’t be defensive or give a vague, legal answer to questions.One media moment that burned in my mind was when Ivan Yates had to shut down Celtic Bookmakers in 2011.He went on Sean O’Rourke the day the company went into receivership, and in his opening statement he said it was his fault the company couldn’t be saved. Ivan Yates Source: Sam Boal/Rollingnews.ieHe said he felt terrible, but the problem wasn’t just about him. He acknowledged that there were hundreds of people who gave their life’s work to the company who would be out of a job.The minute he had that opening statement finished, there wasn’t a substantial question left to ask him.The overall piece of advice I would give to companies is when you’re dealing with a crisis, leave no question unanswered. You’ll minimise the crisis in the long run and get to move on from it quicker.Jack Murray is chief executive and founder of communications agency All Good Tales.

Saturday 15 Apr 2017, 8:00 AM 450 Views THE FIRST HOUR of a PR crisis was traditionally called ‘the golden hour’. Today, thanks to Twitter, we’re probably talking about the golden nanosecond.What happens in every social media storm, big or small, is that you lose control of the narrative very quickly. Take the United Airlines scandal this week, when a passenger was dragged off a flight that was overbooked.The 40-second video that came out afterwards of the man being forcibly removed from the plane was disturbing – but it was a perfect social media moment.As jaw-dropping as it was, that video was absolute gold for media organisations. It was clickbait on an unbelievable level. And when your crisis becomes a commercial opportunity for everybody else, you’ve got a problem on a whole other level.

Calls for submissions on Direct Provision and asylum application improvements The current system was established in 1999 in response to a sharp increase in people seeking asylum in Ireland. Friday 3 May 2019, 6:00 AM Short URL 12,412 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 22 Comments STAKEHOLDERS ARE BEING asked to make submissions on issues affecting people living in Ireland’s Direct Provision system as well as the international protection application process.The Justice and Equality committee is asking interested parties what can be done in the short-to-medium term to improve the welfare and conditions of people currently living in Direct Provision.Established in 1999 in response to a sharp increase in the number of people seeking asylum in Ireland, Direct Provision has been repeatedly critcised by migrant rights groups due to the length of time people remain in centres while their asylum applications or appeals are processed, the conditions of centres as well as the psychological effects on those living in these centres. In 2017, a blanket ban which prevented asylum seekers from working was deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in May 2017. Barriers remain for people living in Direct Provision who wish to work, however, the Irish Refugee Council has said. The weekly allowance of €21.60 for Direct Provision residents has also been frequently criticised – though this was raised last year to €38.80 per week. Last week, residents of Mosney Direct Provision centre in Co Meath protested at the treatment by staff and management of a fellow-resident, leading the Irish Council for Civil Liberties to reiterate calls for independent inspections of Direct Provision centres to take place. ‘Better models’Since September, pressure has grown on the Department of Justice & Equality’s Reception & Integration Agency to accommodate those seeking international protection in Ireland.In addition to the 38 permanent Direct Provision centres around Ireland, there are currently over 500 asylum seekers living in hotels and B&Bs. Earlier this month, the department announced that Clondalkin Towers Direct Provision centre – due to close in June – will remain open until at least 2021.Three other centres are due to open in line with the ‘Independent Living’ model recommended by 2015′s McMahon report, which made 173 recommendations for Ireland’s asylum system. The department aims to open more centres in line with this model throughout 2019 and 2020, according to a spokesperson for the justice department. The justice committee has said it plans to look beyond the current Direct Provision system to “consider whether there are better models or alternatives we could pursue”. For the last number of years, there have been calls for the government to examine alternative models to the Direct Provision system. The Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland (MASI) has said it will be making a submission to the committee. The justice committee is also asking for submissions in relation to the efficiency of the current system of processing international protection claims “in order to bring policies, practices and laws into line with international best practice and standards”. The committee is due to commence a series of public hearings on Direct Provision issues on 22 May and said it plans to publish a findings report in the autumn.The closing date for submissions is 24 May. https://jrnl.ie/4615385 By Cónal Thomas Image: Asylum Archive May 3rd 2019, 6:01 AM Image: Asylum Archive Share52 Tweet Email1
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Eleni Zaroulia, the wife of Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos and an MP with the neo-Nazi party, prompted complaints in Parliament when she referred to migrants as “subhumans” who are “carrying all kinds of diseases.” The comment prompted Deputy Parliament Speaker Yiannis Dragasakis to ask Zaroulia, who has been appointed to the Council of Europe’s Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination, to show more respect. Dragasakis asked if Zaroulia would be sharing the same views when attending the committee meetings. This week, 218 out of 300 MPs voted to lift the immunity of Golden Dawn deputy Costas Barbarousis after he was involved in a raid on an open-air market in Mesolongi, western Greece, last month, when migrants’ stalls were smashed.

Ex-Manchester United forward Brian McClair demands more from an inconsistent, yet talented, Paul PogbaThe French midfielder scored for the fifth time in last Sunday’s 2-1 win over Everton, but continues to be criticised for his rather underwhelming performances.United fans and critics alike believe Pogba is yet to deliver the kind of displays that saw the club fork out a then-world transfer fee of £89m to Juventus.But McClair, who used to be the director of United’s youth academy, knows first-hand just how talented Pogba is.And while manager Jose Mourinho reckons his happy with Pogba’s campaign, McClair knows the United academy graduate is capable of better things.The 54-year-old feels some more consistency from Pogba could help him on his way to true greatness.“Pogba is doing pretty well at Manchester United,” McClair told ESPN.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“There is a bit too much social media nonsense, which is nothing to do with playing football, but Pogba has scored some important goals and played well in important games.“World-class players grab the main events, the semi-finals and finals for club and country, the biggest league games. France won the World Cup this year.“But I don’t know how many people would say that one particular player grabbed the whole thing. Pele grabbed World Cups, Garrincha and [Diego] Maradona too.“[Michel] Platini grabbed European championships. Real Madrid, with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, [Luka] Modric and Sergio Ramos, grab the most important games when it really matters.“They change games when things are going against you. Lionel Messi does the same. Cristiano did it when he was at Manchester United.“A top Manchester United player needs to be at least 7/10 every game. And in the proper big games you need to make some 10/10 appearances.”Pogba has managed five goals and four assists in 13 appearances across all competitions for United this season.

With this in…“I hope not, although it is curious, to say the least,” Solari said.“We do not set the calendar, which is for La Liga [authorities] to answer for. We just have to go out there and give our best.”Madrid has a very difficult month of February, as they take on Barcelona tomorrow in Copa del Rey, then on Saturday, they visit Atletico Madrid.Next week Los Blancos will play against Ajax in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, and then will have two La Liga matches: against Girona and Levante.They end their February month hosting Barcelona in Copa del Rey action.🎙💬 This is what Solari had to say about tomorrow’s Clásico!#RMCopa | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/Wi3GkRrs6b— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) February 5, 2019
Greenpeace protesters have climbed down from an Arctic-bound drill rig in the Pacific. The activists said rough waters drove them off their high-seas bivouac on Shell’s Polar Pioneer this Saturday — nearly a week after they climbed aboard.Download AudioOn Saturday, a federal judge in Anchorage also granted Shell’s request for a temporary restraining order against Greenpeace.U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason ordered Greenpeace to stay more than half a mile from the Polar Pioneer and Shell’s second rig, the Noble Discoverer. But she declined Shell’s request to have the order apply to all of the support vessels they hope to deploy in the Chukchi Sea this summer.Shell could try again as part of a longer-lasting injunction. For now, their temporary restraining order will expire on April 28.
Reuters fileThe government and the Banks Board Bureau will shortlist candidates for the next chairman of the the country’s largest bank, the State Bank of India, as present incumbent Arundhati Bhattacharya’s term will end in October, financial daily Economic Times said on Monday, citing a senior government official.The daily said the government intends to start the process early so that there is a smooth transition and the bank does not remain headless for a long period. “We want to avoid a situation where for some reason the appointment gets delayed as seen in cases of some state-run lenders,” the daily said, quoting the official, who added that such delays occurred despite getting vigilance clearances in advance.Four managing directors of the bank – Rajnish Kumar, B Sriram, PK Gupta and Dinesh Kumar Khara – are in the running to succeed Bhattacharya. Gupta and Khara have longer tenures left and so have a stronger case. Kumar and Sriram are set to retire in 2018, the daily said, saying that vigilance clearance for three of the MDs has been obtained already.Appointed in 2013 as the bank’s first woman chairman, Bhattacharya got a year’s extension in October 2016 as SBI was in the process of merging its associate banks like the State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of Travancore and Bharatiya Mahila Bank with itself.Following the successful mergers in April, SBI accounted for nearly a quarter of all outstanding bank loans in India. It took nearly seven years after State Bank of Indore was merged with the country’s largest lender to complete this consolidation, Economic Times said.The paper quoted a senior BBB functionary as saying that the government would be looking at offering a fixed tenure for the bank chairman.In 2015, while selecting private sector candidates for five large public sector banks (PSBs), the government had offered fixed three-year tenures subject to the superannuation age of 60 years. The same year, management reforms in PSBs were initiated and the post of chairman and managing director-cum-CEO was split, except for SBI.In 2017-18, the bank has estimated growth (in business) of 10-12 per cent, and in fiscal 2019, it is pegged at 14 per cent.A qualified institutional placement (QIP) issuance by the bank to raise RS 15,000 crore through private placement on June 5 came on the back of a 43 per cent stock rally in the last one year.SBI said late last week that the QIP was oversubscribed, with demand exceeding Rs 27,000 crore and the issue getting priced at Rs 287.25 per share.It said exceptionally strong demand of over Rs 8,000 crore came from only foreign institutional investors. Overall, FII demand was in excess of Rs 11,000 crore.Anshula Kant, DMD & CFO of SBI, said in a Hindu Businessline report last week that for 2017-18 the bank has not fixed the resources that will be raised via divestment of non-core assets. Last year, the bank’s resource raising target via divestment of non-core assets was Rs 3,000 crore and it raised Rs 2,700 crore.
The madrasa student from Sonagazi, Feni who was set on fire. File photoOne among the four people who set a madrasa girl on fire in Sonagazi of Feni on 6 April has reportedly been arrested.The accused Shampa is a close relative of Siraj Ud Daula, the principal of the madrasa. The victim’s family had filed a case against him on 27 March alleging sexual abuses. The burned student, who is still in a critical condition, made a ‘dying declaration’ to the physicians at the Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital before being taken into life support. In her statement she said four persons including two women had carried out the attack and one of them was Shampa.Deputy inspector general of police’s Chittagong range, Khandaker Golam Faruque, told the media on Tuesday that they had detained Shampa from Mangalkandi union on 9 April.But the Sonagazi police station said the detainee was Umme Sultana alias Popy.These contradictory statements cast doubts over the arrest of Shampa. While DIG Faruque was asked on the contradiction of the two police statements, he said Popy and Shampa was the same person.The family of the madrasa student said, they could not rely on the local police administration. The police have been trying to hide the actual incident of the attempted murder of the girl and tried to change the case statement as well, they alleged.Family members of the girl at DMCH Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit said that an investigation should be carried out to know whose interest was being served by the Sonagazi police station officer-in-charge Moazzem Hossain.When asked why they cannot trust Moazzem, the victim’s brother told Prothom Alo that the OC on 27 March had termed the case a concocted one, saying the victim had ‘made up a drama’. Their family was constantly being threatened, too, he added.Around one and half hours prior to the attack on his sister, Afsaruddin, an English teacher of the madrasa, threatened the family to withdraw the case, said the brother.Thirty hours after the incident, the OC told the media that there would be investigation to know if this was a suicide attempt or a murder attempt.The victim’s family members also said that Iqbal Ahmed, a sub-inspector of Sonagazi police station, took an interview of the victim on 6 April taking permission from the physicians of DMCH Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit. He recorded the interview and let them listen to it.But on Tuesday, it was discovered that the statement in which police took the signature of the victim’s brother had some information missing. The incident of tying the girl up before setting her on fire and the names of several crucial defendants were omitted.In the first statement, nine were named excluding the principal and including four anonymous women. Later at the protest of the victim’s family, councilor of Sonagazi municipality No. 4, Maqsud Alam, an alim student of the madrasa, Jobayer Ahmed, and hafez of madrasa owned hefezkhana, hafez Abdul Quader, were named.Several inhabitants of the area said the police station sent them messages asking not to join in any demonstration against the principal.The OC Moazzem Hossain, however, denied the allegations stating he never said the girl had tried to commit suicide.When asked, DIG Faruque said there was no scope to neglect such an issue and legal steps would be taken against the responsible ones.Four have been shown arrested and sent to the court of Feni Tuesday. Senior judicial magistrate Sharaf Uddin granted five-day remand for each of the four — Nur Hossain, Kefayet Ullah, Saidul Islam and Alauddin — all of whom are known as the principal’s men.According to sources in police, during an interrogation the detained madrasa office assistant Nurul Amin revealed that another allegation of sexual abuse was brought against the principal earlier, but the issue got lost after a probe committee was formed.The principal called in three girl students to his office on 27 March. One among them was allowed to enter the room. As the principal pressed calling bell after some time, the assistant went on and found the girl (who was later set on fire) sitting on the floor leaning her head down. As he took her out of the room, she started crying seeing her two friends.Sonagazi union council chairman Shamsul Arefin said the attack on the girl was premeditated and added the principal has a group of cadres who were involved in the incident.The physicians at DMCH carried out a surgery on the madrasa girl on Tuesday to make her lungs functional.”We have conducted the operation keeping her on life support,” Brigadier General Nasir Uddin, a director of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), told newsmen at the Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit of DMCH on Tuesday.Nasir Uddin said the burned girl is facing a number of complications. Alongside blood and lung infection, she has developed problems in her kidney.Quoting Singapore physicians, he said she could not be taken abroad for treatment in such a critical condition. A group of physicians from Singapore General Hospital are due in Dhaka on 14 April on a pre-scheduled programme. They will visit the girl at that time.[Prothom Alo’s Sonagazi correspondent also contributed to this report]

CARDINAL PELL SEXUALLY ABUSED TWO LITTLE BOYS. CARDINAL PELL IS A CHILD MOLESTER. ANOTHER CATHOLIC PRIEST, AFTER ATTACKING GAY PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU, WAS CONVICTED IN A COURT OF LAW FOR DOING SO. AND HIS LAWYER ADMITTED IT BUT TRIED TO LAUGH IT OFF AS VANILLA PENETRATION.And all that really matters to good Christians like you is GET THE GAYS. Sandi in EL says: March 13, 2019 at 11:56 am I guess that would make you a closet Mormon Republican. I’ve been reading Frederic Martel’s book “In the Closet of the Vatican.” One of the main points Martel brings homes is that in the Vatican it is usually the most virulent opponents of gay rights who tend to be secretly gay themselves. Isn’t this always the case no matter where you go? Cardinal Pell is mentioned as an example of this syndrome, along with others, and Pell’s outspoken opposition against Australia’s gay marriage initiative a few years ago is only the most recent example of his public record of homophobia; proving once again that William Shakespeare was right when he wrote centuries ago, “the lady doth protest too much methinks.” Ben in Oakland says: Ben in Oakland says: Joseph Jaglowicz says: March 13, 2019 at 2:13 pm Sexually victimizing children is not normal adult sexuality.

Commentators have noted that Pell’s jury, and the public, had only limited information about the accuser and his background. His credibility, some have observed, although central to the court’s proceedings, was not allowed to be discussed.”“Pell’s accuser offered a graphic account of being sexually abused by Pell in a busy Melbourne cathedral one Sunday morning in 1996. The accuser said another boy was abused at the same time; but that boy denied multiple times having been abused. Since he died in 2014, the court could not hear his testimony.”I recall blocking your for your off-the-wall comments about the Australian Commission and see from this comment that you remain a steadfast opponent of Catholicism in Australia and supporter of the kangaroo court system in place in that country.

I didn’t say that cardinal Pell is isolated, but we are talking about a small minority of priests, according to your good friend bob or mark. YOU are generalizing it to all gay men, just like your other best just did.but never fear, dearie. I agree with you. Pell is just one more example a Catholic priest while being on the hunt so that he could molest small boys, big boys, anyone he could his hands on, as are a whole cohort of catholic priests. I agree with you, it’s despicable, disgusting, and ought to be punished.What I don’t agree with you about, which you conveniently ignored in favor of changing the subject, that this has the slightest thing to do with gay men such as myself, my husband, my hundreds of friends and the thousands I have known or the gay community in general.Some of these cases are pedophiles. I’m not, and I don’t know anyone who is.The ones who are molesting late teenagers are in the minority. They are interested in late teenage boys. I’m not, and I don’t know anyone who is who isn’t pretty close to that age.But ya know what? All of these predators are Catholic priests, not just some of them. All of them are men, not just some of them. all of them are faithless, not just some of them. all of them have sexual issues, not just some of them. Large swathes of the catholic hierarchy knew about all of this, and did nothing. I cannot believe that all of this was a secret to other priests, bishops, and the faithful.It’s not a gay mess, dearie. It’s a CATHOLIC MESS. Avery Catholic mess. One that his been documented as a catholic mess for at least 1000 years, 970 years before there was ever a gay community.Your attempt to blame gay men or the community in general for it is only going to appeal to the kind of people who think like you.The very fact that you and your ilk think that people are going to agree with you when you have been spouting the same nonsense for years, decades, centuries is precisely the reason you are losing the argument, at least outside of Russia and similar places, especially among young people.good luck with it, dearie..

The sex abuse scandal has clearly had an impact on churchgoers. “It’s been disastrous,” said Dr. Peter Wilkinson, a former Catholic priest and researcher in Melbourne, where Cardinal Pell served as the archbishop. “I’d say we’ve lost about two, possibly three generations of young people, and now I think the situation is worsening. The older generation is following the young.”The real question is this: why are the people who are not leaving remaining in this church? Why are they giving it money, defending the church by claiming this whole thing is a scam, a deflection, an attack by Satan, a plot by Gay Central, anything but what is obvious? And what about those public school teachers, eh? and Terry Bean, eh? And Jussie Smollett, eh? WHAT ABOUT THEM? But not what about Jabba the Trump.Here is what we actually know. After tens of thousands of victims, mostly underaged boys and under 14 have come forward or been discovered in “the records of the church”, all the deflection in the world is not going to change the fact that the public knows it is not unusual for Catholic priests to have sexual relations with children, adolescent boys, girls, and adults in their charge— often times without even legal consent, let alone moral consent. Not to mention, thanks to Daddy McCarrick, EACH OTHER! In short, pretty much anything that moves, and has no more than two legs. And a whole hierarchy dedicated to ignoring it.Now, I think I’ll just sit back and wait for the attacks on the messenger to begin, and the shoddy defense of the indefensible Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Share This! “The higher one climbs [the career ladder], the harder one falls [from grace].”Mr. Pell, don’t let the back door hit you on the way out.

At first, when Pell was convicted, some of his supporters questioned the verdict. Now, however, the talk has changed to concern about gays in the church. Two things should be noted: Pell was convicted for crimes against children and he has appealed the verdict.We should all brace ourselves for another instalment of this story on 5-6 June 2019, when the appeal is heard. March 13, 2019 at 9:37 pm March 13, 2019 at 9:39 pm March 14, 2019 at 9:50 am EVERYONE BEWARE Mark Connelly is a FAKE PERSON!!! Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The most senior Catholic convicted of child sex abuse was sentenced Wednesday (March 13) to six years in prison for molesting two choirboys in an Australian cathedral in a crime the judge said showed “staggering arrogance.”Cardinal George Pell must serve a minimum of three years and eight months before he is eligible for parole, according to the judge’s order. The five convictions against Pell carried a maximum possible sentence of 10 years each.“In my view, your conduct was permeated by staggering arrogance,” Victoria state County Court Chief Judge Peter Kidd said in handing down the sentence.Pope Francis’ former finance minister was convicted by a unanimous jury verdict in December of orally raping a 13-year-old choirboy and indecently dealing with the boy and the boy’s 13-year-old friend in the late 1990s, months after Pell became archbishop of Melbourne. A court order had suppressed media reporting the news until last month.The 77-year-old denies the allegations and will appeal his convictions in the Victoria Court of Appeal on June 5. It was not immediately clear if he will also appeal the sentence.For the first time in Pell’s many court appearances since he returned to Australia from the Vatican to face abuse charges, Pell wore an open-necked shirt without a cleric’s collar. He was also not wearing a cardinal’s gold ring, which might reflect strict rules on jewelry in the state penal system.In explaining his sentencing decision, the judge said Pell had led an “otherwise blameless life.” Kidd said he believed given Pell’s age and lack of any other criminal record, the cardinal posed no risk of re-offending.The judge also took pains to note that he was sentencing Pell for the offenses on which the cardinal had been convicted — and not for the sins of the Catholic Church.“As I directed the jury who convicted you in this trial, you are not to be made a scapegoat for any failings or perceived failings of the Catholic Church,” Kidd said.But the judge also said that Pell had abused his position of power and had shown no remorse for his crimes. Kidd described the assaults as egregious, degrading and humiliating to the victims.Pell showed no emotion during the hourlong hearing and barely moved throughout. He stood silently with his hands behind his back as the judge read his sentence. Pell signed documents that registered him for life as a serious sexual offender before he was led from the dock by four prison officers.In a statement, one of Pell’s victims called the judge’s sentence “meticulous and considered.”“It is hard for me to allow myself to feel the gravity of this moment, the moment when the sentence is handed down, the moment when justice is done,” the man said in a statement read outside court by one of his lawyers, Vivian Waller. “It is hard for me, for the time being, to take comfort in this outcome. I appreciate that the court has acknowledged what was inflicted upon me as a child. However, there is no rest for me. Everything is overshadowed by the forthcoming appeal.”The father of one of Pell’s victims who died of a heroin overdose in 2014 at the age of 31 paid tribute to his son’s childhood friend for speaking out.“I commend the young fellow who has come forward,” the father said. “He kept it in for a long time and that would’ve been hell for him. Absolute hell.”The father said he was “really appreciative and thankful that he did come forward.”“I want to give him a hug. He was a fabulous little kid. He’s a fabulous man now,” the father said.The father also described the sentence as “a disappointment.”The father is considering suing Pell and the church over the abuse.Australian law prohibits the publication of sex crime victims’ identities, so the father also cannot be identified.Abuse victims’ groups also expressed disappointment that the punishment was not harsher.The sentence “makes a mockery of the concept of true accountability and is not a sentence commensurate with the crimes committed and the harm reaped,” Blue Knot Foundation president Cathy Kezelman said in a statement.SNAP, a U.S. support group for victim of clergy abuse, described the sentences as “comparatively light.”“We hope that the sentence imposed on Cardinal George Pell will provide some measure of healing to the living survivor of his abuse and comfort and closure for the family of Pell’s non-surviving victim,” SNAP said in a statement.The judge said Pell’s age was a significant factor in determining his sentence.Pell suffers from hypertension that is exacerbated by stress and has a dual-chamber pacemaker, the judge said.Pell used a cane to leave the court, after having both knees surgically replaced in December.His sentencing comes on the sixth anniversary of Francis’ election as pope. Pell was in the conclave that elected Francis and remains eligible for any potential future conclave until age 80 or unless he is removed.Asked by a reporter outside court after the sentencing whether the case against Pell amounted to a witch hunt, his lawyer Robert Richter gave a rueful smile.“No comment — you be the judge,” Richter replied.After centuries of impunity, cardinals from Australia to Chile and points in between are facing justice in both the Vatican and government courts for their own sexual misdeeds or for having shielded abusers under their watch.Last week, France’s senior Catholic cleric, Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, was convicted of failing to report a known pedophile priest to police. Barbarin was given a six-month suspended sentence.Pope Francis last month defrocked the onetime leader of the American church after an internal investigation determined Cardinal Theodore McCarrick sexually molested children and adult men. It was the first time a cardinal had been defrocked over the child abuse scandal.The surviving victim made a statement against Pell in 2015 — a year after the other victim’s death — to a police task force set up to investigate allegations that arose from a state parliamentary inquiry into handling of child abuse by religious and other nongovernment organizations. The task force also investigates allegations made to a similar national inquiry, called the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.Pell gave evidence by video link from Rome to the royal commission, the nation’s highest level of inquiry, in 2016 about his time as a church leader in Melbourne and in his hometown of Ballarat. The four-year royal commission found in its 2017 report that the Melbourne Archdiocese had ignored or covered up allegations of child abuse by seven priests in a bid to protect the church’s reputation and avoid scandal.The royal commission was critical of Pell’s predecessor in Melbourne, Archbishop Frank Little, who died in 2008. It made no findings against Pell, saying in a redacted report that it would not publish information that could “prejudice current or future criminal or civil proceedings.”Australian police interviewed Pell about the survivor’s allegations in a Rome hotel in 2016. Pell described the allegations at the time as “vile and disgusting conduct” that went against everything he believed in.Pell voluntarily returned to Australia in 2017 to face an array of child abuse charges, most of which have since been dropped. The full details of those allegations were suppressed by court orders.Pell was once the highest-ranking Catholic in Australia’s second-largest city, where he is now a prisoner held in protective security. Pedophiles such as Pell are typically separated from the main prison populations in Australia.Pell was 55 years old and had recently established a compensation plan for Melbourne’s victims of clergy abuse when he abused the two boys at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in 1996. The survivor testified that Pell had walked in on the boys swigging altar wine in a back room after a Sunday Mass.The judge rejected Richter’s submission that no person thinking rationally would molest two 13-year-old boys in a cathedral sacristy after a Mass with the doors open.“To offend in such a risky and brazen manner, I infer that, for whatever reason, you were in fact prepared to take on such risks. I conclude that your decision to offend was a reasoned, albeit perverted one,” Kidd said.More than a month later, Pell abused the survivor again, squeezing the boy’s genitals as they passed in a cathedral corridor after a Mass.The judge said the assault was committed with “a degree of physical aggression and venom.”(Associated Press writer Kristen Gelineau in Sydney contributed to this report.) Mark Connelly says: floydlee says: Not “secretly gay themselves”. Secretly same sex attracted. Secretly homosexual-hating homosexuals. Secretly sexually confused. Secretly abusive. Secretly child molesting.Bot not, not, not gay. Art says: My point about the discussion was about the comments here. You are, however, right about the appeal being held in June 2019. It might be your opinion that the appeal will succeed but it would be more sensible not to speculate on which way the appeal will go.
