Calls mount for revival of national outbreak committee over coronavirus fears

first_img“We need to revive such a committee, which would be tasked with building communication bridges between departments [of different ministries and agencies] and be filled with people competent in their respective fields,” he told The Jakarta Post recently.”The committee can provide answers to international doubts because if it [COVID-19 control] is under the Health Ministry alone, people will continue casting doubt about whether [the measures taken] have been subjective.”He also proposed that such a committee could function as a centralized platform for the government to report on measures taken — including on laboratory test results.Other than a panel of experts, the Komnas FPBI also consisted of cross-sectoral ministers. In late 2010, Komnas FPBI was turned into the National Committee for Zoonosis Control, focusing on any diseases passed from animals to humans, before it was permanently dissolved in 2016 by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo because it had overlapping tasks with several ministries and agencies. Second opinions from independent experts are essential to help solve a problem, said Amin Soebandrio, the director of the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology who led the Komnas FPBI’s expert panel.The government has set procedures for coronavirus testing, but he said experts had yet to know whether they were implemented without errors as there was no information available to them, Amin said.Indonesia had tested 143 specimens as of Saturday, apart from the 188 World Dream cruise ship crew members who had started a two-week observation period on Sebaru Kecil Island off the coast of Jakarta on Friday. The ministry is also planning to test the 69 Diamond Princess cruise ship crew members previously quarantined in Japan, bringing the total number of tests close to 400.The number, however, pales in comparison with that of neighboring Malaysia, which had tested 1,092 cases as of Feb. 24, although the Health Ministry’s disease control and prevention directorate general secretary, Achmad Yurianto, claimed that its laboratory, the only one in the country authorized to conduct the tests, could do up to 1,700 per day.Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto has said budget efficiency was a concern and that lab tests would only be done on those with symptoms who also had travel records and contacts with infected countries or people, in line with World Health Organization guidelines.Indonesia’s testing capability appeared to be an issue also raised by the international community, with a document circulating among foreign diplomats obtained by the Sydney Morning Herald showing that inadequate transportation of specimens was among the concerns.Saudi Arabia also listed Indonesia as one of the countries where “the spread of the [COVID-19] coronavirus is a danger” according to its health authorities, making it subject to the kingdom’s suspension of tourism visas.Malaysian and New Zealand authorities said on Friday that two recently confirmed cases had been to Indonesia before testing positive for the coronavirus in the respective countries, in addition to a Chinese man and a Japanese tourist who tested positive days after they went out of Indonesia.Amin of the Eijkman Institute said that, although the government had followed WHO procedures in conducting tests on those with symptoms only, budget efficiency should not be a top priority this time.Eijkman and several other laboratories were ready to partner with the ministry to run lab tests, but they were waiting for the government’s invitation.The effectiveness of the ministry’s laboratory came into question recently after a hospital in Semarang, Central Java, and another in Batam, Riau Islands, each reported the death of a patient who had symptoms similar to those of COVID-19.Both patients’ tests came back negative, officials said, with the Semarang patient succumbing to bronchopneumonia, whom Minister Terawan later confirmed had the H1N1 virus, which is a known cause of swine flu. The Batam patient, meanwhile, was said to have died from “another illness”.In early February, Health Ministry disease control and prevention director general Anung Sugihantono claimed the ministry was also actively looking into deaths from pneumonia, claiming there had been no significant increase in such deaths. He did not immediately provide the relevant data.The Post, however, obtained a ministry letter showing that it requested for hospitals’ data on their pneumonia patients and deaths recorded between Dec. 1 and Feb. 25 only on Feb. 26, despite its previous claim.Yet, Yurianto said that letter was merely issued to create better data management.”All this time hospitals send the reports to the health service directorate general. We want them to also send us the same reports so we can manage the data,” he said. “The one in the health service directorate general is mixed up with other illnesses, so it takes a long time to map them.”Topics : Calls are mounting for the government to form a national outbreak committee that involves experts to help the Health Ministry in the battle against the COVID-19 coronavirus as questions abound about the country having zero confirmed cases.The committee is expected to have a similar role as the now-defunct National Committee for Avian Influenza Control and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness (Komnas FPBI) that was set up to contain the bird flu between 2006 and 2010, which also involved experts.A biochemistry researcher at Airlangga University, Chairul Anwar Nidom, who was a member of Komnas FPBI’s expert panel, said giving the Health Ministry alone the role of dealing with the coronavirus was one of the government’s “weaknesses”.last_img read more

Fears for Uighur culture as scholars vanish in China crackdown

first_imgIt has been almost two years since Bugra Arkin’s father Aierken was abruptly snatched from his home in China’s troubled Xinjiang region by national security agents.Aierken Yibulayin’s publishing firm — one of the biggest in the region — translated thousands of books into Uighur before he was detained in October 2018. Arkin has not heard from him since.”My father had a strong impact on the Uighur publishing industry, and that made him a target of the Chinese government,” said Arkin, who lives in California. “This is very unacceptable and our lives were literally destroyed.”He is not the only one.At least 435 Uighur intellectuals have been imprisoned or forcibly disappeared since April 2017, according to the Uyghur Human Rights Project.The rounding up of Uighur linguists, scholars and publishers is seen by overseas advocacy groups as part of a campaign by the Chinese Communist Party to erase the ethnic group’s identity and culture and assimilate it into the dominant, Mandarin-speaking Han population. ‘Don’t know where he is’ Alim last heard from an acquaintance that his father’s trial, which began in January, had been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but fears he will soon be sentenced and jailed.His mother, who lives in Xinjiang, “wouldn’t dare talk” about Hasani’s arrest.”I certainly felt very bad and didn’t know how to express it. For a long time I couldn’t concentrate on my work either,” Alim said.All 11 linguists in his father’s work unit have also been detained, including 64-year-old Hemdulla Abdurahman, who was snatched in January 2019, according to his son Yashar Hemdulla.”In March 2019, I was told my father had been taken to a ‘hospital’ … but the family acquaintance on the call mimed handcuffs on her wrists,” said Hemdulla, who lives in Norway. “I do not know where he is now.”Hemdulla knows several intellectuals whose relatives say they were first detained in camps, then given long-term jail sentences, and he is concerned his father might suffer the same fate.”At the time, I found it extremely hard. I am an only son, my mother is all alone and my father is not young — how much more can he take?” said Hemdulla.While authorities said in December that all people from vocational centers have “graduated”, researchers say they have been gradually moved to other forms of detention.Many have been prosecuted and given prison sentences of up to 20 years, said Gene Bunin, a researcher on Uighur issues and creator of the Xinjiang Victims Database.”This has partially been a trend in the last one or two years, with the camps being emptied,” Bunin said, estimating that at least 300,000 people remain incarcerated.Fears have also been raised over jailed Uighur intellectual Ilham Tohti, who was awarded a top human rights prize by the European Parliament — but has not been seen in years. Renowned Uighur linguist Alim Hasani was taken by authorities in August 2018 during a Beijing work trip, according to his son Ershat Alim.Alim believes that his father, a retired division head of the Xinjiang Ethnic Language Work Committee, was detained for his research, which aimed to standardize Uighur-Han translations.Hasani, who compiled several dictionaries, was a Communist Party member whose projects had previously been approved by the state and won awards.”When I first heard that my father was arrested, I never once thought that this could happen to him. He must have been very surprised as well,” said Alim, who lives in France.More than one million Uighurs and other mostly Muslim Turkic-speaking minorities have been held in re-education camps in Xinjiang following a spate of ethnic violence, according to rights groups.Chinese authorities describe the facilities as vocational education centers where Uighurs learn Mandarin and job skills to steer them away from extremism.In a statement, China’s foreign ministry said: “The so-called notion of ‘imprisoning Uighur intellectuals to extinguish Uighur culture’ is complete rumor-mongering and slander.”center_img ‘Sad and angry’ Uighur literary critic and writer Yalqun Rozi was among the first wave of intellectuals to be detained in October 2016 after hardline Xinjiang Communist Party chief Chen Quanguo took office.His relatives later discovered that Rozi had been sentenced to 15 years in prison in January 2018 for “inciting subversion of state power” — a vague charge commonly used for political prisoners. Authorities suggested that Rozi’s detention was related to his role in compiling Uighur literature textbooks that had been in use for more than a decade, said his son Kamalturk Yalqun. All his father’s textbook collaborators were also detained around this time.Since 2012, bilingual Mandarin-Uighur education has gradually been applied in schools in Xinjiang, with the aim of reaching 2.6 million students. Prior to that, classes were mostly taught in Uighur and other minority languages.”By abolishing these textbooks and eliminating Uighur language education altogether, the next generation of Uighur youth will have no way to find their link with Uighur culture,” said Yalqun.”It is a way for China to eliminate the entire Uighur identity and assimilate them to become… people that speak Chinese, think Chinese and don’t know their own history or culture. That makes me sad and angry at the same time.” Topics :last_img read more

Spanish pension funds return 2.7% over 2016

first_imgAt the end of December, total assets under management for the occupational pensions sector stood at €35.4bn, a reduction of 0.3% over the past year. The number of participants in the occupational system remained stable at just over 2m.For Spanish pension funds as a whole, the continuing shift away from domestic assets accelerated towards the year-end: they formed 57.2% of portfolios at end-December 2016, compared with 62.5% at end-September.Non-domestic holdings grew from 22.8% at end-September 2016 to 26.3% three months later.There was a similar shift from fixed income to equities during the final quarter of the year, although a large factor was the relative outperformance of equities over the period.Fixed income investments made up 54.3% of portfolios at the end of the year, down 3.3 percentage points since end-September. This compares with 27.2% invested in equities, an increase of 3.5 percentage points over September.Of this, 9.6% is in Spanish shares, with 17.6% in non-domestic shares.However, the biggest single component of pension fund portfolios – 29.4% – is still invested in Spanish government bonds, with a further 16.2% in dometic corporate bonds.David Cienfuegos, head of investment for Spain at Willis Towers Watson, said:  “Clearly the trend is towards lower returns, and given the current state of the global economy, we believe it will be lower for longer.” He said the best-performing assets during 2016 for the firm’s Spanish pension fund clients had been the more illiquid ones such as private equity, infrastructure, and private debt. Clients using larger managers with global exposure also saw a boost to returns.Cienfuegos added: “More traditional asset classes had a difficult year, and in equities there were concerns about China’s slowdown, although the rally in the last few weeks of 2016 helped performance.”According to Cienfuegos, there is now a divide within Spanish occupational pension funds between those that have stayed within traditional asset classes, and those that have diversified into assets such as alternative credit and private markets.“We are now starting to see divergences in performance,” he said. “Those funds – generally the larger ones – who have done their homework and are diversifying into alternatives had returns around 4-5% in 2016, rather than the industry average of 2.7%.”Cienfuegos said that one of the main concerns in terms of risk management for his firm’s clients was currency exposure within global mandates, especially in US dollars.He said: “The cost of hedging has increased dramatically because of the divergence between US dollar and euro interest rates, with the difference of about 1.5% on any US dollar exposure.”Cienfuegos said large pension funds are now reviewing their currency hedging policies and considering how they can hedge without the increased cost.Meanwhile, preliminary estimates from Mercer’s Pension Investment Performance Service (PIPS) gave a more upbeat picture of performance, with a 3.6% investment return for Spanish pension funds over the 2016 calendar year.The PIPS covers a large sample of pension funds, most of them occupational schemes.Over the calendar year, within the sample universe equities outperformed fixed income by a wide margin. Non-euro-zone equities did best with a return of 14%, while euro-zone equities made 4.1%. Fixed income returned 2.8%.However, the month of December had seen an upsurge in euro-zone performance, with a 7.9% return for euro-zone equities, compared with 2.2% for non-euro-zone equities. Spain’s occupational pension funds made average returns of 2.74% over the 2016 calendar year, according to the country’s Investment and Pension Fund Association (INVERCO).This compares with a 3.48% return for the 12 months to end-September, and is also lower than the 2.88% for calendar 2015.However, INVERCO pointed out that this performance was achieved in spite of the periods of uncertainty that dominated the markets throughout the year. Equities performed well towards the end of 2016, the association added.Average annualised returns for Spanish occupational funds were 4.28% for the three years to 31 December 2016, and 5.76% for the five years to that date.last_img read more

Hammers stay out of stadium talks

first_img Press Association A House of Lords report was published on Tuesday which recommended the two clubs work together and even suggests the League One side be granted occasional use of the stadium, something they have long been pushing for. It adds another layer to what has been a seemingly interminable saga over who would move into the stadium and one that twisted this way and that for years before negotiations ended in March this year with the LLDC signing off West Ham as anchor tenants. The agreement saw the Barclays Premier League club take on a 99-year lease, with the stadium to be transformed into a 60,000-seater venue in time for the 2016-17 season. While Orient chairman Barry Hearn wants there to be three-way talks between the two clubs and the LLDC, for West Ham any discussions should be just between the League One club and the LLDC which owns and manages the stadium. “Looking forward, our focus is solely on creating a stunning new home for the club and its supporters in 2016, alongside a long-term legacy for the community of east London,” a spokesman for the Premier League club said. “What goes on with other interested parties is very much a matter for (Leyton Orient) and the LLDC and not West Ham United. “We welcome the committee’s comments and are happy the House of Lords have recognised that West Ham United’s selection will ensure the stadium reaches its full legacy potential.” Orient welcomed the report and on their website a statement from Hearn read: “I agree with the House of Lords recommendation – ourselves, West Ham and the LLDC should sit down and work this out together once and for all. “Leyton Orient is a local club which undertakes a huge amount of community work in one of the poorest areas in London. “It has been said that Orient did not bid enough to cover its costs of using the stadium, but we were bidding within our means and against ourselves – we do not know what the LLDC want from us because they will not tell us. “So we ask them again, publicly, to say what we have to pay to share the stadium, a national asset which is on our doorstep. “We are writing to the LLDC seeking a meeting so that we can have an open and transparent discussion about what part we can play in the future use of the Olympic Stadium.” A spokesman for the LLDC was not immediately available for comment. West Ham believe Leyton Orient need to hold discussions directly with the London Legacy Development Corporation without involving them if they are to come to a satisfactory solution over the Olympic Stadium.last_img read more

Gyorko, Burnes come up big as Brewers trounce Pirates 9-1

first_img WATCH US LIVE Jedd Gyorko homered twice and Corbin Burnes struck out 10 in six innings, helping the Milwaukee Brewers pound the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-1 on Friday night.Burnes (1-0) gave up three hits and walked one as the Brewers bounced back after dropping six of their previous eight games. They were swept in a three-game series at Pittsburgh last weekend.Gyorko hit solo shots in the first and seventh innings for his sixth career multihomer game. His last one came against the Brewers on May 1, 2017, when he was playing for the St. Louis Cardinals.Ryan Braun and Jacob Nottingham also homered for the Brewers. JT Riddle connected in the seventh for Pittsburgh.Braun hit a three-run shot to left in the third to join Albert Pujols, Miguel Cabrera and Robinson Cano as the only active players with at least 800 extra-base hits.The only player to collect more extra-base hits for the Brewers is Hall of Famer Robin Yount with 960 from 1974-93.Pirates starter Derek Holland (1-2) faced Milwaukee for the third time this season. In his first two starts against the Brewers, Holland allowed a total of three runs over 10 2/3 innings.He wasn’t nearly as effective this time. Holland struck out eight, but gave up eight runs, six hits and four walks over five innings.Gyorko gave the Brewers a rare early lead with a two-out drive just inside the left-field foul pole in the first. The Brewers had been outscored 17-3 in the first inning before Friday.After Braun’s blast extended the lead to 4-0, Nottingham crushed a 0-2 pitch to left-center in the fourth for his second career homer. Nottingham had been called up earlier in the day to replace catcher Manny Piña, who went on the injured list with torn meniscus in his right knee.Holland also gave up a two-run double to Mark Mathias with two outs in the fifth.Riddle homered against David Phelps in the seventh, but Pittsburgh finished with just four hits.WORTH NOTINGThe Brewers released utilityman Brock Holt and designated reliever Justin Grimm for assignment. Holt had been designated for assignment last week.FAREWELL TO DYSONPirates manager Derek Shelton had nice parting words for outfielder Jarrod Dyson, who was traded to the Chicago White Sox for international signing bonus pool money. Shelton called Dyson an “unbelievable teammate” and credited the veteran for assisting in former shortstop Cole Tucker’s move to the outfield.“One of the things he told Tuck is you have to be able to embrace opportunities,” Shelton said.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: Piña will miss at least the rest of the regular season. He hurt his knee while sliding back to first on a pick-off attempt Thursday. “When I touched the base, I knew right away that something happened with my knee,” Piña said. “I left the game and didn’t feel too much pain after the game, but when I was back in my apartment trying to sleep, it was very painful.” Manager Craig Counsell said Piña would undergo surgery but might be available for the postseason if Milwaukee gets there.UP NEXTThe four-game series continues Saturday with JT Brubaker (0-0, 4.80 ERA) pitching for the Pirates and Brett Anderson (2-2, 3.52) starting for the Brewers.Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 29th August, 2020 09:00 IST Written By Associated Press Television News center_img LIVE TV FOLLOW US Last Updated: 29th August, 2020 09:00 IST Gyorko, Burnes Come Up Big As Brewers Trounce Pirates 9-1 Jedd Gyorko homered twice and Corbin Burnes struck out 10 in six innings, helping the Milwaukee Brewers pound the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-1 on Friday night COMMENTlast_img read more

PANCAP welcomes High Court ruling in T&T

first_imgThe Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV and AIDS (PANCAP), says it welcomes the ruling by the Trinidad and Tobago High Court that deemed the country’s buggery laws unconstitutional.In his ruling last Thursday, Justice Devindra Rampersad said “Sections 13 and 16 of the (Sexual Offences Act) are unconstitutional, illegal, null, void, invalid and of no effect to the extent that these laws criminalize any acts constituting consensual sexual conduct between adults.”The Trinidad and Tobago government has already indicated it will appeal the ruling.The right to human dignityBut in a statement, PANCAP, the mechanism that provides a structured and unified approach to the Caribbean’s response to the HIV epidemic, said the ruling acknowledges that every individual regardless of their race, color, gender, age or sexual orientation has the right to human dignity.PANCAP said in reflecting on one of the recommendations of the Regional Consultation of Faith Leaders held in Trinidad in February, noted that the meeting had acknowledged areas of litigation that may challenge religious values and the responses required to harmonize principles and practices around human rights, human sexuality and human dignity.“In handing down his decision, Justice Rampersad said the ruling however is “not an assessment or denial of the religious beliefs of anyone …However, this conclusion is a recognition that the beliefs of some, is not the belief of all.”Encourages dialogue“PANCAP therefore encourages continued dialogue between the Faith Community and the LGBTI community on areas of agreement and commonality,” it said.In his ruling, Justice Rampersad said the current law goes against the basic rights of any citizen to enjoy the freedom of privacy and family life.He said it was unfortunate when society, in any way, values a person or gives a person their identity based on their race, color, gender, age or sexual orientation.The lawsuit is one of several landmark cases filed by Caribbean LGBT activists challenging regional homophobic laws.In 2016, Jamaican lawyer Maurice Tomlinson challenged the immigration laws in Trinidad and Tobago and Belize which allow for refusal of entry to regional homosexuals visitors.While the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) dismissed his case, both governments admitted that the laws were not enforced by their immigration officials.last_img read more

NFF Unveils Eagles’ 2014 World Cup Jersey Today

first_imgThe Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will today unveil the new jersey of Nigeria’s national football teams, which will also serve as the official jersey of the Super Eagles at the 20th FIFA World Cup finals taking place in Brazil this summer.The Super Eagles are to wear the new jersey at next week’s international friendly against Mexico in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.The new design produced by Adidas, the official kit supplier of the national teams and the leading kit manufacturers in the world, is already raising eyebrow because of the lemon green used instead of the traditional leaf green associated with Nigeria. Minister of Sports and Chairman, National Sports Commission, Alhaji Bolaji Abdullahi will be special guest of honour at the event slated for the front area of the Sunday Dankaro Football House, Package B of the National Stadium Complex, Abuja, from 10am.Also invited are Director General of the National Sports Commission (NSC), Hon.

As the Angels’ season winds down, here’s what matters

first_imgHOUSTON — The Angels’ season is going to end the way it began, with about a month worth of games in which the outcome means little.Fall training?Starting Thursday, the Angels have 29 games left. They are 64-69, with almost no chance of making the playoffs. What they are doing now is essentially prepping for 2019.This team doesn’t do long-term rebuilding, but the next month certainly will have the look of short-term rebuilding, with as many as eight or nine rookies in the box score some nights. The Angels will be busy evaluating their roster to determine how best to return to contention in 2019. Also, will Ohtani’s return to the mound vault him back into the race for AL Rookie of the Year? You can make a case he should be there now, but if he reminds people in September how well he can pitch, it can only help his chances at winning the award.What about the other pitchers?Three other Angels starters – Matt Shoemaker, Tyler Skaggs and Nick Tropeano – are on the disabled list. All three are expected to come back at some point in September.Shoemaker (forearm surgery) was set for a 60-pitch rehab outing Wednesday night at Class-A Inland Empire. Skaggs (groin) and Tropeano (shoulder) are a little further behind, perhaps returning in the middle of the month.As with Ohtani, the Angels would like to see each of those pitchers successfully pitch in the majors in September, for the peace of mind of the pitchers and to help with the organization’s winter roster planning.What’s going to happen with Mike Scioscia?The Angels’ longtime manager is down to the final month of his 10-year contract. Although Scioscia has denied that he’d made any decisions about his plans, it is widely assumed this will be the end of his tenure.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.What’s unclear is how it will all happen. Will there be an announcement before the end of the season, allowing for a public farewell during the final days of the season?If so, how quickly will the Angels replace him? If the decision to move on has been made for some time, maybe the Angels already have a plan for his successor and will announce that immediately.How will Taylor Ward and David Fletcher do?Ward and Fletcher are getting the chance to play every day at third and second, respectively. Those positions are wide open for next season, although Zack Cozart is expected to be back and playing one of them.In the meantime, September offers an opportunity for Ward and Fletcher to show how ready they are to take on a larger role in 2019.Ward got off to a hot start offensively, but has since cooled. Fletcher has been fairly consistent at the plate so far.To a lesser extent, rookie catcher Francisco Arcia is also auditioning for a role in 2019.Who else will be called up?Roster expansion in September is typically a time many prospects get their first taste of the majors. Among the Angels players knocking on the door for their big league debuts are pitchers José Suarez and Griffin Canning and infielders Luis Rengifo and Matt Thaiss.None are on the 40-man roster now – and Canning and Thaiss don’t even need to be added this winter – so it’s possible none of them get the call. Since Suarez and Rengifo are already expected to be added to the 40-man roster in November, the Angels could justify adding them now to give them a taste of the majors.Is Albert Pujols going to play the whole month?Pujols has played 70 games at first, more than twice as much as he played the previous two years combined. At the All-Star break, they put him on the disabled list to “recharge” his knees.At some point in the final month, it’s reasonable to think the Angels might just shut him down so he can begin resting for next season. As long as the Angels have Ohtani and want him to DH, they are going to need Pujols, 38, to play first. He’s going to have to condition himself over the winter to do so. A head start on that preparation couldn’t hurt, and it would also open up more plate appearances for young players.Pujols, by the way, is 18 RBIs away from 2,000. He’s got a chance to reach that milestone this season if he plays out the string.One more trade?It is possible Jim Johnson, an impending free agent, will be dealt before the Friday night deadline for players to be eligible for postseason rosters. Johnson has a 3.74 ERA and he’s a veteran with closing experience, so it’s possible a contender wants him to add depth.If you’re thinking no one would want Johnson, remember in 2016 the Angels traded Fernando Salas to the New York Mets on Aug. 31. Salas had a 4.47 ERA at the time but posted a 2.08 ERA in 17-1/3 innings to help the Mets reach the NL wild-card game. A team could hope for the same from Johnson.Draft positionAs they currently sit, the Angels would pick 12th in next year’s draft. If they have a bad month, they could “climb” to seventh or eighth.  Before you root for them to lose, be aware of a couple things.First, the system that used to protect top 10 picks from being lost as free-agent compensation no longer exists. Now, a club can’t lose its highest pick, no matter what number it is, from signing a free agent who rejects a qualifying offer. A team could lose its second pick, no matter what number it is.Second, historically there’s not that much difference. No. 7 picks have made the majors 70 percent of the time, each accounting for an average career WAR of 10, according to Baseball Reference. No. 14 picks have also made the majors 70 percent of the time, with an average WAR of 7.8. Averages mean little when talking about one particular draft, so you’re still talking about roughly the same caliber of players available in that part of the first round.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Andrew Heaney, 7-8, 4.25) at Astros (RHP Justin Verlander, 13-8, 2.72), Thursday, 5 p.m., Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM) Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img With that in mind, there are going to be plenty of Angels storylines worth following, as they chart their course for next season.Will Shohei Ohtani make it back?Ohtani threw a 50-pitch simulated game Monday and then said he’s ready to return to the majors. After Ohtani was diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, which prompted whispers of Tommy John surgery, the Angels opted instead to try stem-cell therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection.Although it looks like it worked so far, the Angels will only really know after Ohtani has started unleashing 100 mph fastballs and diving splitters to major league hitters.Doctors have assured the Angels it’s safe to try now – or at least as safe as it ever will be – so the Angels are cautiously moving Ohtani toward a return, which could come as soon as this weekend in Houston.If Ohtani comes back and pitches without issue early in September, the question will then be how much more do the Angels need to see before they consider him healed and pack him up in bubble wrap for next season?last_img read more

‘BAD OMEN FOR BONG’: 73 New Ebola Cases Reported in One Week

first_imgThe Bong County Health Team on the county Taskforce has released an update of Ebola cases in the county, recording a total of 73 new cases for the period of one week.Briefing Journalists at the office of the Bong County Health Team at the Phebe Hospital Compound on Monday, the Administrator at the County Health Team, Fartormah Jusu, said of the 73 new cases, there were nine  confirmed, 49 suspected and 15 probable.Mr. Jusu also announced to the meeting that the Bong County Ebola Taskforce received seventy specimen results of last week, of which 32 were positive and 36 were negative, while two were in- determinant, meaning the two are required to redo their EVD test.The County Health Administrator was swift to notify the County Taskforce that a cumulative number of 972 contacts listed were recorded from July to September, among which 155 persons completed the 21 days of quarantine as instituted by the County Health Team.He disclosed that the county recorded 27 cumulative deaths from the Ebola Treatment Unit in Suakoko District, with 83 admissions currently at the ETU.Mr. Jusu indicated that the County Health Team has documented 44 discharged patients from the ETU, with 34 tested negative. He said three children from the ETU in Bong County have been reintegrated with their parents in the county after surviving the human killer disease.He named Gbarpolu County as the latest epi center, with seven cases being reported from the county with one positive and six suspected.The County Health Team Administrator informed the gathering that the Ebola cases began to increase from mid August to October 13, 2014,  something he described as a bad omen for the people of Bong County. Mr. Jusu told the Taskforce that he believes the rapid spread of the disease is the direct result of attitudinal problems on the part of local residents, who fail to adhere to measures as announced by Health authorities.“If we do not change our behavior of how to treat this deadly disease, it will surely live with us for a long period of time, despite the international community’s firm commitment to help us fight against the virus” Mr. Jusu declared shaking his head in disappointment. He told this newspaper that one of the underlying reasons for the swell in deaths in recent times is the entrenched culture of silence on the part of Liberians to report for testing in spite of the presence of testing centers in the county.  This, he said, will lead to the breakdown of the fabric of the society.The County Health Official narrated that with the ingrained culture of silence, the County Health Team is finding it tremendously difficult to fight the Ebola virus disease in the county.  At the same time, suspected Ebola virus carriers are not prepared to be quarantined or to report to the health facilities for early check up.Ordinary Bong County residents who spoke with the Daily Observer argued the virus is not being enclosed due to the lackadaisical attitude on the part of the inhabitants to abide by the actions put in place by Health authorities;  while others maintained that the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and the Government of Liberia are not doing enough to encourage  health workers to provide services at the health facilities and ETUs around the country.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Need to Review Dual Citizenship Laws

first_imgSince the publication of our article on the issue of dual citizenship as part of the proposed amendments to the Constitution in the referendum that will be held sometime this year, we have received many reactions. Among the submissions, one stood out, because it brought forth a much simpler solution to the issue: laws governing the loss of Liberian citizenship is not in the Constitution, therefore should not be among the proposed amendments. It was an act passed into law by the William Tolbert administration in 1973. The reader who sent us the information begged to remain anonymous. The act was part of the new citizenship and naturalization law passed in 1973. Here is what it says:Approved: May 15, 1973Amendments Approved: May 9, 1974Chapter 22. LOSS OF CITIZENSHIP§ 22.1. Acts causing loss of citizenship.§ 22.2. Citizenship lost solely from performance of act.§ 22.3. Liberian woman marrying <>§ 22.4. Certificate as to loss of Liberian citizenship.§ 22.1. Acts causing loss of citizenship.From and after the effective date of this title, a person who is a citizen of Liberia whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his citizenship by —(a) Obtaining naturalization in a foreign state upon his own application, upon the application of a duly authorized agent, or through the naturalization of a parent having legal custody of such person; provided that citizenship shall not be lost by any person under this section as the result of the naturalization of a parent or parents while such person under the age of 21 years, unless such person shall fail to enter Liberia to establish a permanent residence prior to his twenty-third birthday; or(b) Taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof; or(c) Exercising a free choice to enter or serve in the armed forces of a foreign state, unless, prior to such entry or service, such entry or service is specifically authorized by the President;(d) Voting in a political election in a foreign state or voting in an election or plebiscite to determine the sovereignty of a foreign state over foreign territory; or(e) Making a formal renunciation of Liberian nationality before a diplomatic or consular officer of Liberia in a foreign state in such form may be prescribed by the Secretary of State.[70]§ 22.2. Citizenship lost solely from performance of act.The loss of citizenship under section 22.1 of this title shall result solely from the performance by a citizen of the acts or fulfillment of the conditions specified in such section, and without the institution by the Government of any proceedings to nullify or cancel such citizenship.§ 22.3. Liberian woman marrying <>.A Liberian woman who marries an <> retains her Liberian citizenship unless she renounces it by an affirmative act.[71]§ 22.4. Certificate as to loss of Liberian citizenship.Whenever a diplomatic or consular officer of Liberia has reason to believe that a person while in a foreign state to which such officer is assigned has lost his Liberian nationality under any provision of Section 22.1 of this title, he shall certify the facts upon which such belief is based to the Secretary of State in writing. If the report of such officer is approved by the Secretary of State, a copy of the certificate shall be forwarded to the Attorney General, for his information, and the diplomatic or consular office in which the report was made shall be directed to forward a copy of the certificate to the person to whom it relates.§ 3. This Act shall take effect immediately upon publication in handbills.Therefore, the issue of citizenship should not be among the constitutional amendments to be approved by the electorate. It will simply take the same procedure that brought it into being: an act of the legislature signed by the President or vice-versa.We hope that this will take the debate at another level and that stakeholders will put their energies into a campaign to reverse a law that keeps many capable Liberian hands away from participating in nation building.The waves of migration that occurred in the 1980s and 1990s put on the road of the exile the nascent educated middle-class. Who will take the lead? The President or the Legislature? Or should the Supreme Court simply act on the act? The positive resolution of this issue would allow tens of thousands of Liberians to exercise their franchise and take part in the next elections. Their status in a foreign country must not deprive them of their native rights.However, there is now a reminder that since the Act was passed into law, it becomes part of the Constitution and therefore must be dealt with as any part of the Constitution. Whichever it is, Liberia needs its great human power languishing in the diaspora. And people have no need their foreign passports when they return home.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Marquez stymies Vazquez

first_img“Israel broke his nose in the first round,” Roach said. “He told me right away after the first that his nose was broken. He wanted me to stop the fight a couple of rounds earlier, but I asked him to suck it up. I thought Marquez was getting tired. “Israel tried to go a couple of more rounds, and then he came back and said he couldn’t do it anymore. His nose is more important than the fight.” Vazquez, 29, of Huntington Park via Mexico City, was attempting to make his third successful title defense. He was trailing by two points on two cards at the time he retired; the other scorecard was even. “I couldn’t breathe properly throughout the rounds,” said Vazquez, who is 41-4. “When I came back to my corner (after the seventh round), I could breathe through my mouth, but I couldn’t breathe through my nose. So I told Freddie, `This is it.’ I thought I was winning the fight. He hits very hard. I was taking a lot of shots because I couldn’t breathe.” Marquez was fighting for the first time at 122 pounds. It didn’t appear he had any trouble carrying his tremendous power up a weight class. CARSON – After the seventh round of Saturday’s World Boxing Council super bantamweight title fight at The Home Depot Center, Israel Vazquez told his trainer, Freddie Roach, that he could not continue because he could not breathe thanks to a broken nose he suffered in the first round. Suddenly, a bloodied Vazquez walked over to Rafael Marquez, waving his arms as if to say, “No m s.” Marquez then was hoisted on the shoulders of one of his cornermen and carried around the ring in celebration. The longtime bantamweight champion from Mexico City became a super bantamweight champion with a seventh-round technical knockout in front of an announced crowd of 5,155. center_img “I proved I am the best champion,” said Marquez, who is 37-3 with 33 knockouts. “He is a great champion. He hits so hard. He is a great champion, and he deserves a rematch.” It took longer than most thought it would, but Vic Darchinyan (28-0) retained his International Boxing Federation flyweight title with a 12th-round technical knockout of Victor Burgos (39-15-3) of Mexico in the semi-main event. Referee Jon Schorle stopped the fight at 1:27 of the final round. robert.morales@ presstelegram.com (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Starlets held by Zambia in Olympic qualifier

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Starlets defender Vivian Nasaka tracks down Zambia’s Rachel Kundananji during their Olympic Qualifier at the Kasarani Stadium on November 8, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 8 – Two moments of concentration lapse in either half saw Kenya’s Harambee Starlets held to a 2-2 draw by visiting Zambia at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi as their historic race to a first ever Olympic slot hit speed bumps with the second leg to play on Monday in Lusaka.Starlets were leading 2-1 after Corazone Aquino’s goal in the 72nd minute, but no sooner had the cheers died down at the stadium than the Copper Queens leveled the tie through Rachel Kundanaji. Grace Chanda had given the visitors a 13th minute lead before Marthe Tembo headed the ball into her own net to tie the game after 30 minutes.Starlets will now need to win the return leg to proceed to the final round of qualification, but a high scoring draw of three or more goals would still see them through.Not the best situation the home girls had envisioned themselves in, but they found themselves trailing after 13 minutes, a dangerous and potentially calamitous away goal.Chanda had the easiest tasks of tapping the ball home from inside the six hardr box after keeper Annette Kundu had failed to pick out a low cross from skipper Zulu Misozi on the left.Starlets had control of the game from the start, but a slight lapse in concentration at the back after Cynthia Shilwatso had threatened early on the opposite end with a stinger from range saw them go down to the visitors.Harambee Starlets defender Wincate Kaari dribbles away from Zambia skipper Zulu Misozi during their Olympic qualifier at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on November 8, 2019. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaJust 10 minutes on the turn, Starlets should have leveled scores when Elizabeth Wambui’s brilliant ball from deep in her own half found the dangerous Mwanahalima Adam inside enemy territory.However, with the smoothest of controls, the finish did not match the quality of the first touch as the Thika Queens forward struck the ball straight to the keeper’s arms one on one.Left back Wincate Kaari had another opportunity minutes later this time with a freekick from good scoring range, but her left footed scorcher missed the target.The search finally bore fruit on the half hour mark when left back Tembo headed the ball into her own goal as she tried to cut out Shilwatso’s cross from the left.It turned out to be a full contest with Zambia’s Copper Queens clearly showing they were in Nairobi for a win, throwing as much in attack as they did in defense.At the stroke of halftime, the visitors were inches close to a second but Vivian Nasaka made a brilliant tackle inside the box to poke the ball off Barbra Banda’s feet as she prepared to pull the trigger after dribbling her way to the edge of the six yard box.Harambee Starlets midfielder Sheryl Angachi tackles Zambia’s Barbra Banda during their Olympic qualifier at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on November 8, 2019. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaIn the second half the Zambians kept their attacking front and just three minutes in keeper Kundu took one for the team when she handled the ball outside the box after Banda had looped it goalwards off a quickly executed counter attack.Kundu was yellow carded and from the resultant set piece, the Zambians shot over.Starlets had a chance to take the lead in the 63rd minute but Janet Bundi’s swinger from the edge of the box off a poorly defended corner was pushed to the upright by the keeper.The home girls went ahead in the 72nd minute when Aquino reacted fastest to tap the ball home after the keeper had spilled Wambui’s shot from range.But, Starlets gave away the lead. Keeper Kundu spilled a harmless cross from the right and from the loose ball, a melee ensued inside the box with Kundananji having the last touch with a shot from the right that went into the net.Starlets pushed to regain the lead without success.0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ozil cut from video game in China over Xinjiang comments

first_imgOzil, a German national of Turkish origin, condemned China’s crackdown on Muslim minorities in the western region of Xinjiang in a tweet last Friday and criticised Muslim countries for failing to speak up about the alleged abuses. Arsenal has distanced itself from his comments, while China said his tweets were “untruthful” and that he was “deceived by fake news”.Meanwhile, German Bundesliga club FC Cologne pulled out of a football academy in China, citing a re-evaluation of “resources and priorities”.But senior official Stefan Mueller-Roemer, a former club president and now head of the fan council, told local newspaper Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger that “we don’t need China in sport”, charging that “human rights are massively disrespected” in the country.China has faced growing international condemnation for setting up a vast network of camps in Xinjiang, where critics say Uighurs are pressured to renounce Islam, support the ruling Communist Party, and integrate with China’s majority Han culture.Rights groups and experts say more than one million Uighurs and other mostly Muslim minorities have been incarcerated, part of a long-term government response to tame years of persistent violent unrest against Beijing’s control of Xinjiang.Ozil had tweeted in Turkish: “Korans are being burnt… Mosques are being shut down… Muslim schools are being banned… Religious scholars are being killed one by one… Brothers are forcefully being sent to camps.” “The Muslims are silent. Their voice is not heard,” he wrote against a blue backdrop with a white crescent moon — the flag of ‘East Turkestan’, the term many Uighur separatists use for Xinjiang.Shortly afterward, NetEase announced on its verified Chinese social media accounts that Ozil’s comments had “hurt the feelings of Chinese fans and violated the sport’s spirit of love and peace”.“We do not understand, accept or forgive this comment,” it said.Konami, the Japanese developer of the game, declined to comment on the matter when contacted by AFP.Following Ozil’s comments, Chinese state television dropped plans to broadcast the English Premier League club’s match last Sunday, and discussion of the topic is now heavily censored in China.China at first denied that the camps existed but later acknowledged them as foreign pressure grew, saying they were vocational training centres.In a similar episode, China moved in October to punish the NBA’s Houston Rockets after its general manager Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters.Ozil has been praised on Twitter for speaking out, with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also weighing this week.“China’s Communist Party propaganda outlets can censor @MesutOzil1088 and @Arsenal’s games all season long, but the truth will prevail,” Pompeo wrote on Twitter, chastising China for its “gross” rights violations against Uighurs.Turkey, which shares linguistic and ethnic ties with the Uighurs, has been outspoken on the issue but most Muslim-majority countries have been muted in the face of China’s commercial and diplomatic power.0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mesut Ozil has been deleted from Chinese versions of the Pro Evolution Soccer game © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONShanghai, China, Dec 19 – Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been deleted from Chinese versions of the popular Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) mobile game, the title’s China distributor has said, as the fallout builds over his criticism of the country’s treatment of its Uighur minority.US-listed Chinese internet company NetEase said it removed Ozil from the game due to his “extreme comment about China.”last_img read more

King’s legacy not perfect

first_img Some say the civil rights movement sparked a backlash that could reverse gains. Among those concerns are efforts to require a voter ID card in Georgia; the expected confirmation of conservative Judge Samuel Alito to be on the Supreme Court; immigration’s effect on the job market for blacks; and an expected fight next year over reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act. “Politically, the group that has gained the most after the civil rights movement was white Southern conservatives,” Bositis said. “They have transformed the Republican Party, which has become the dominant political party.” All 50 states gradually recognized a King holiday. But only one-third of businesses offer a paid holiday, according to the Bureau of National Affairs. Participation in the holiday was enhanced by legislation passed in 1994 establishing the day as one of service. In many places, people will help with projects aimed to improve the community and help the needy. Supporters of the holiday try to discourage businesses from using it as a marketing gimmick. “Martin Luther King would turn over in his grave if he thought he was recognized by a day of shopping and rest,” said former Sen. Harris Wofford, D-Pa., who worked with Rep. John Lewis of Georgia to establish the holiday as a day of service. “The idea that it’s a day on and not a day off is catching on. But the King holiday is well short of what it needs to be,” Wofford said. Three-fourths of those polled say King should be honored with a federal holiday. Blacks almost unanimously favored that, according to the poll of 1,242 adults that included an oversample of blacks. The poll, taken Monday through Thursday, has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Accusations that King committed adultery and plagiarized material in academic writings emerged in the years after the holiday was established. Those claims remind people that King had human failings despite his larger-than-life image as a hero of the civil rights movement, said William Boone, a political scientist at Clark Atlanta University. “It does not diminish the mission he was on,” Boone said. “People now have a tendency to sanitize him, to make him more palatable to a broader spectrum of the American population.” For Latoya Williams, a black mother of four from Norfolk, Va., the holiday is a chance to remind her children what King accomplished to give them more opportunities in life. Her children respond with a weary, “We know, Ma.” Replays of King’s soaring “I have a dream” speech from 1963 inspire Williams every time. “When I hear that speech they play on TV every year,” she said, “I still feel that dream.” Demographics and details about racial progress in the United States and the AP-Ipsos poll on attitudes about Martin Luther King Day and racial progress. The survey information comes from a poll of 1,242 adults, conducted Monday through Thursday for the AP by the international polling firm Ipsos. The sample included 312 blacks. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, slightly larger for blacks. The comparative racial information comes from the Census Bureau. WHO COMMEMORATES THE HOLIDAY: Blacks, at 60 percent, were more likely than whites, at 15 percent, to commemorate the holiday. At 13 percent, people age 65 and older were less likely than people in other age groups to participate. People in urban areas, at 30 percent, were more likely than those in the suburbs or rural areas to participate. Single people were more likely than married people to participate. Democrats, at 30 percent, were twice as likely as Republicans, at 14 percent, to get involved. PROGRESS TOWARD THE DREAM: Whites, at 78 percent, were more likely than blacks, at 66 percent, to feel that significant progress has been made toward racial equality. Young adults, at 85 percent, were the most likely to feel significant progress has been made. Those who live in the suburbs were more likely than those in the cities to think progress has been made. Republicans, at 84 percent, were more likely than Democrats, at 72 percent, to think much progress has been made. SHOULD THERE BE A HOLIDAY: Blacks, at 96 percent, were more likely than whites, at 67 percent, to feel that King’s birthday should be a national holiday. People under 50 were more likely than those over 50 to think MLK Day should be a national holiday. Those with a college degree were more likely to feel that way than those with a high school education or less. Democrats, at 84 percent, were more likely than Republicans or independents, to feel the day should be a holiday. ECONOMIC COMPARISON: Comparative numbers on median incomes of whites and blacks from the Census. The median salary is the midpoint of the range salaries. In 1955, when Rosa Parks helped spark the civil rights movement by refusing to give up her seat on a bus, blacks’ median annual income was 43 percent of the median income of whites. In 1968, the year King was killed, blacks’ median annual income was 63 percent of whites’ median income. In 1986, the year King’s birthday was made a national holiday, blacks’ median annual income was 68 percent of whites’ median income. In 2003, the most recent year available in the census data, blacks’ median annual income was 81 percent of whites’ median income. – Associated Press MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY SCHEDULE GOVERNMENT:Federal, state, county and city offices, courts, libraries and animal shelters will be closed, and the U.S. Postal Service will not deliver mail.

Three-quarters of those surveyed say there has been significant progress on achieving King’s dream. But only 66 percent of blacks felt that way. “At times, I have felt that we’ve made progress,” said Aubrey Jones, a black deputy warden at a state prison near Macon, Ga. “At other times, I feel we’re at a standstill, especially when you come across instances of individuals being prejudiced.” The obstacles extend beyond instances of discrimination and prejudice. “For a big portion of the African-Americans, there’s not better education,” said David Bositis, an analyst of black issues for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. “There have been some gains made, but it’s uneven. A lot of whites basically say: ‘The civil rights movement has been done. I don’t want to hear about it anymore.”‘ Only 23 percent of respondents say they will do anything to commemorate the national holiday that took effect in 1986 after a lengthy campaign in Congress to honor King. A solid majority of blacks, 60 percent, say they will get involved in holiday activities.

Racial integration has swept across much of American life and blacks have gained economic ground since the height of the civil rights movement. Two decades ago, the government established a federal holiday in honor of the slain civil rights leader. On some measures, such as annual income, blacks have closed the gap considerably with whites over the past few decades, census figures show. The progress for blacks may have stalled, however, and some even fear a possible backlash. “We’ve made great progress over the last 50 years,” said Julian Bond, national chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. “Progress has always been stop-and-start, and sometimes back up. We’re in a holding pattern right now.” last_img read more

FORMER IRELAND MANAGER CRITICISES DONEGAL COUNTY BOARD OVER MURPHY FINAL DECISION

first_imgFORMER Ireland International Rules manager Eugene McGee has launched a verbal attack on the Donegal County Board over its decision to go ahead with last Sunday’s county final – forcing captain Michael Murphy to play two games in two days.The Glenswilly man celebrated his second Championship medal win on Sunday as his side brushed aside Killybegs.The match took place less than 24 hours after Murphy captained Ireland to victory over Australia. McGee said the fixture should be taken more seriously.“We had a ridiculous situation where the captain of the Ireland team had to play a full match on Saturday night and then go back to Donegal to play with his club team in the Donegal county final,” McGee said.“That is not acceptable. It is asking too much, although it did go well for Murphy as he was a great success in both games.”McGee also criticised the Australians for their performance.  FORMER IRELAND MANAGER CRITICISES DONEGAL COUNTY BOARD OVER MURPHY FINAL DECISION was last modified: October 22nd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AustraliafixturesglenswillyIrelandMichael Murphylast_img read more

Historic Donegal island home built over 150 years ago for sale

first_imgA fully renovated property with a rich history on a small Donegal island along the Wild Atlantic Way has been placed on the market for sale. Inis Saimer is a private residential island surrounded by the quiet waters of the Erne Estuary in the town of Ballyshannon on the Wild Atlantic Way. Its island status has led to a fascinating and eventful history.Historical records indicate that Inis Saimer was used as a protected stronghold by Irish chieftains such as the O’Cannons, O’Mulderrys, and the O’Donnells.​Cistercian monks used it as a place of residence in the 1100s and 1200s.As part of the Plantation of Ulster, the island was taken by the British Crown and given to protestant planters and Trinity College Dublin.The island also played a role in various historical battles at Erne River crossings. The present house on Inis Saimer was constructed in the mid 1800’s by the Erne Fishery Company as part of the then very lucrative Erne salmon and eel fishery.It is also understood that Inis Saimer was also once owned by the Speaker of the first Irish House of Parliament, and then the richest man in Ireland, Thomas Conolly.Currently, the island has its own private jetty and is just one minute by boat from Ballyshannon’s Mall Quay.Owned by Brendan Connolly, Inis Saimer is a sheltered restful place, a discreet island retreat, yet Ballyshannon’s town centre with shops, restaurants etc. is no more than 6 minutes from the front door of the island’s historic residence.You can full the full details on the Inis Saimer website here.

Your Brain Has Perfect Pitch

first_imgScientists have a knack for asking questions about things most of us take for granted.  “The whole orchestra tunes up to an A note from the oboe – but how do our brains tell that all the different sounds are the same pitch?” asks Robert J. Zatorre in Nature.1  This is a puzzling question to neurologists.  There’s more, as Zatorre illustrates with a Disney story:As Pythagoras knew, if you pluck a string, it will vibrate in its entire extent, as well as in halves, thirds and so on, and each of those vibrational modes will result in a separate harmonic frequency. Yet we usually perceive the pitch as corresponding to the lowest of these, which is the fundamental.  For a simple demonstration of the ‘missing fundamental’ effect, pick up a phone.  Most telephone lines cut off the lower frequencies, resulting in a slightly tinny sound, yet the fundamental pitch does not change; a male voice does not sound like Mickey Mouse.  The brain seems to figure out the missing pitch. (Emphasis added in all quotes.)Is this just learned behavior, or what?  Apparently not.  Researchers working with marmosets have found neurons that are pitch-sensitive:Bendor and Wang studied the auditory cortex (the region of the brain that enables perception of sound) in the marmoset monkey.  They show that there are neurons in this region that respond in essentially the same way to a variety of sounds that all have the same fundamental but do not share any frequencies.  For example, a neuron that responds to 200 hertz also responds to the combination of 800, 1,000, and 1,200 hertz because all correspond to the same fundamental.  This effect is unusual because neurons usually respond only within their receptive field, which is typically a narrow range of frequencies. The marmoset neurons, however, responded not only to frequencies in their receptive fields, but also when there was no frequency within the receptive field but the other frequencies in the stimulus were harmonically related to the missing one.  This property makes psychologists happy, because it provides evidence (if not yet a mechanism) for perceptual constancy.  These neurons respond to an abstract property – pitch – derived from, but not identical to, physical sound features. Presumably, therefore, it is thanks to such neurons that we can follow a tune as the instruments change.That leads to an evolutionary follow-up question, which Zatorre attempts to answer: One might wonder why marmosets need such a system, given that they don’t spend much time listening to iPods.  But periodic sounds are important in the natural environment because they are almost exclusively produced by other animals, and so pitch is a good cue to segregate these sounds from background noise.  Marmosets are highly vocal creatures, and the development of pitch-sensitive neurons would also be central to communication.  From an evolutionary perspective, these abilities could be seen as precursors to human pitch perception, which has led to our unique development of music and is similarly crucial for speech.That’s that for now; he quickly changes the subject: “Now that we know that there are pitch-sensitive neural units, we have to discover how they work.”  He has a long list of unanswered questions: How does the ear keep the information intact through the transformations between eardrum and cochlea?  How does the brain extract details from the overall fabric of sound?  What are the inputs to these pitch-sensitive neurons? – are they hierarchical, or built up from multiple inputs from other structures in the brain?  Do inputs from the higher cognitive regions of the brain participate?  Are these neuronal properties hard-wired or learned?  The list of answers is shorter: we don’t know.1Robert J. Zatorre, “Neuroscience: Finding the missing fundamental,” Nature 436, 1093-1094 (25 August 2005) | doi: 10.1038/4361093a.This article almost earned a Dumb award for its useless evolutionary speculations.  Zatorre committed the plostrum ante equum fallacy (cart before the horse), assuming that necessity was a sufficient mother of invention.  Aside from the empty evolutionary fluff, though, the article underscored a fascinating aspect of hearing that merely hints at the engineering necessary to make it work.  Music doesn’t make evolutionary sense because it is a gift of God.  If Bach appreciated that fact, how much more so should modern anatomists, physiologists and neurologists.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Challenger 1000 Series debut at Farm Progress Show

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Challenger, a global brand of AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), introduced an entirely new category of tractors to North American agribusiness operations during the 2016 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. The Challenger 1000 Series tractors, the largest fixed-frame tractors in the world, are the agricultural industry’s next ‘must-see’ innovation. Designed to deliver lower cost of ownership and improved productivity per acre, the Challenger 1000 Series tractors can be the single solution for both heavy draft and row crop work.The Challenger 1000 Series tractors combine the power of a small-frame, articulated 4-wheel drive with the flexibility and speed of a lighter-weight, fixed-frame row crop machine. They are offered in four models ranging from 396 to 517 engine horsepower with a weight range of 31,204 lbs. (14,153 kg) to 50,706 lbs. (23,000 kg).“Agriculture in North America is undergoing yet another evolution as operations become even larger and require more efficiency and productivity from their overhead investments,” says Josh Keeney, tactical marketing manager at AGCO. “The Challenger 1000 Series tractors are a solution to this challenge, allowing producers to invest in a machine that can serve multiple needs in their operation, helping them be more profitable. We believe this approach just makes sense – we call it intelligent farming.”AccuEngineering™ delivers intelligent farming  The Challenger 1000 Series tractors are built upon the new AccuEngineering platform. This is Challenger’s approach to developing smarter, more intuitive products that increase a farm’s productivity and reduce input costs.“For years, Challenger tractors have been known for their toughness and durability. But as agriculture changes, so do the needs of our customers,” Keeney explains. “From the controls in the cab, to the new AccuDrive powertrain, to the AccuTerminal, AccuEngineering maintains Challenger’s trademark toughness while bringing a new standard of performance and productivity to agriculture.”Innovative AccuDrive™ powertrain expands modern farming possibilities In the quest to provide a single solution for different applications on the farm, AGCO engineers combined a number of innovations. They began by powering the tractors with high-capacity six-cylinder, 12.4-liter, MAN engines with VTG turbochargers which adjust to optimize airflow for optimum power boost over a wider rpm range. The result delivers an impressive 1,770 ft. lbs. of torque at a lower engine speed of 1,100 rpm. This ‘high torque, low speed’ approach allows the Challenger 1000 Series tractors to run in the maximum torque range while delivering low fuel consumption, making them ideal for heavy draft work and ensuring maximum performance, 365 days a year.To give the tractors their nimble flexibility, engineers created the AccuDrive powertrain which combines the Challenger Accu-VT continuously variable transmission with variable four-wheel drive.“The key to this solution is a drivetrain that drives both axles independently. Unlike today’s conventional four-wheel drive tractors that use a fixed torque ratio between the front and rear axle, AccuDrive employs variable four-wheel drive that distributes the torque independently over two transmission outputs on each axle. An intelligently controlled, four-wheel clutch manages the torque, so it can be shifted between the axles according to need.“We call it Challenger Torque Vectoring,” explains Keeney, “and this is how we get the power and traction of an articulated tractor into a fixed-frame platform.”In addition, the tractors were created with a light base weight and convenient ballasting system to make them easy to adapt and ideal for row crop and road work. Maximum road speed of 31 mph is reached at a fuel-saving 1,200 rpm.Flexible, convenient front ballasting system adds to versatility Flexible and convenient front ballasting options ensure the tractors are versatile enough for use from the beginning to the end of each crop year. The simple front ballasting system has five interchangeable weight options ranging from 1,978 lbs. to 7,275 lbs. Easy ballast pickup and self-leveling front axle suspension allow the weights to be changed in minutes.Intuitive tractor management for ease of operation Engineered for productivity, the Tractor Management Center (TMC) of the Challenger 1000 Series puts all tasks and functions within easy reach, reducing time, distraction and fatigue. Access to the Advantage armrest, the 10.4-in. AccuTerminal, Advantage joystick, PTO controls, crossgate (lever optional) and keypad are within easy reach of the operator’s fingertips. The ergonomic design and functionality give the operator complete control and reduces excessive body movements so the operator can focus on implement performance. Each tractor function is color-coordinated with the control that operates it, making operation simple to learn in minutes.Operation of the 10.4-in. touch-screen terminal is intuitive, with a smartphone feel, allowing the operator to manage all tractor settings and adjustments while monitoring and controlling ISOBUS 11783-compatible implements, camera functions, field documentation, variable rate applications, guidance, wireless data transfer, AccuField Command headland management system, automated hitch functions, differential lock and front suspension. Operators also may navigate through the menu and data using the keys and rotary control.Latest guidance innovations available Operators can drive reliably and accurately in the toughest of visual conditions with AGCO’s next generation of Auto-Guide automated steering system. Customers may choose the accuracy level and signal source to meet their specific needs, now choosing from two additional navigation providers: NovAtel and Trimble. A number of correction signals are supported, depending on the receiver, for example, EGNOS/WAAS or also RangePointRTX, CenterPoint RTX, NTRIP. Existing Trimble RTK infrastructures, such as NTRIP can continue to be used. Even without a correction signal, Auto-Guide works reliably for up to 20 minutes with RTK accuracy via Trimble xFill technology. All are enabled by AGCO’s FuseTechnologies.A comfortable step up Owners and operators will appreciate the new fit and finish of the spacious, comfortable cabs on the Challenger 1000 Series tractors. The cabs offer a variety of amenities from air-ride suspension to the dual-motion leather seat.Implement performance on demand  The Challenger 1000 Series tractors’ “do it all” design would not be complete without hydraulic system capabilities to match. With up to six double-acting valves at the rear, the 1000 Series offers 58 gpm and 113.5 gpm hydraulic systems to meet the demands of most any job. The unique 113.5 gpm hydraulic system is a two-pump, load-sensing system that has two independent circuits: one pump delivers 55.5 gal and a second pump 58 gal. Each pump will deliver only the oil that’s needed, without reducing engine speed, to maintain overall productivity and efficiency.“Basically, you can turn into the headland and raise an air seeder without losing pressure to the blower or having to increase engine speed,” Keeney explains.Equipped with the right MICHELIN tires for the job  The Challenger 1000 Series is exclusively equipped with two types of tires from Michelin, both offering excellent traction, pulling power and durability, to support different tractor applications. The MICHELIN® Agribib® 480/95R50 rear duals offer an industry-leading row crop solution, with a diameter of 85.6 inches and rolling circumference of 255.3 inches to transfer maximum power and torque to the ground.For heavy draft work, the MICHELIN Axiobib® 750/75R46 IF (Increased Flexion) rear duals provide a higher power option. This model is the tallest agricultural tire in the world and the first dual RCI 50 tire in North America fitted on a serial production tractor. It features a 90-inch diameter, top speed of 40 mph, load capacity of 18,430 lbs. with lower operating pressure to minimize soil compaction, and unique bead design that avoids slippage on the rim, even in high-torque applications.Optimized uptime with seamless connectivity Fuse Connected Services brings a new level of optimization to professional farming operations through a combination of precision technology products and dealer services including off-season inspections, preventative maintenance, condition monitoring, training and year-round operation support. Enabled by AgCommand®, AGCO’s pioneering telemetry tool with real-time alerts, Fuse Connected Services helps minimize downtime so operations run more efficiently. The Challenger 1000 Series’ AccuTerminal fully integrates with AGCO’s entire suite of Fuse Technologies and Fuse Connected Services.last_img read more

Does the Nest Thermostat Save Energy?

first_imgThe Nest Learning Thermostat has been on the market for nearly four years now. One of the biggest things the Nest folks use as a selling point is energy savings. “Programs itself. Then pays for itself.” That’s the first thing you see when you go to the Nest homepage. But what do the data say? Three independent studies plus a white paper from Nest provide some answers. (GBA first reported on these three studies in a February 2015 news story.)The first study was done on 185 Oregon homes that used heat pumps, and the study was conducted over one heating season (2013-14), with the report released in October 2014. Two nearly identical studies run by two different gas and electric utilities in Indiana looked at both heating and cooling in a total of 700 homes. The results were nearly identical, too. Finally, Nest published a white paper in which they analyzed the energy use of 735 Nest owners with gas furnaces and 624 Nest owners with electric cooling. (See links to all studies at end of article.)Let’s take a look.A study in OregonThis one was focused on heating with heat pumps. The goal was to find a way to reduce the amount of electric resistance heat that typically is installed as a supplemental heat source in heat pumps. The Energy Trust of Oregon, which launched the research project, was looking for an alternative to their “advanced heat pump controls measure.” As I showed in my recent article on Michael Blasnik’s presentation on big data from Nest, there’s a lot of opportunity for savings in heat pump supplemental heating. The Energy Trust installed the Nest thermostats in 185 homes, and 174 of those made it all the way through the study with the thermostat installed and working. The researchers looked at energy use in the heating season before and the heating season after installation of the Nest. They also interviewed the participants at the end of the study period.Here what I think are two of the biggest results they found when they looked at the final data:Homes averaged 12% savings of electricity used for heating after installing the Nest. (These numbers have been adjusted for weather.)More than 60% of the participants found their homes “somewhat more comfortable” or “much more comfortable” while using the Nest thermostat.Then there were some interesting things that fell out when they analyzed the data in other ways. They looked at all kinds of demographics — age, education level, housing type, geographic location, and much more — and here are a few that struck me as noteworthy.Manufactured homes had the highest savings, almost twice as much as the overall average.In homes where the Nest replaced a programmable thermostat, the savings were about twice as high as in homes where it replaced a non-programmable thermostat. The uncertainties were high enough, though, that the report says those numbers only “suggest” that the Nest does better when replacing a programmable thermostat.The homes that used the most energy saved the most energy (1,785 kWh per year), whereas the group with the lowest incomes had the highest percent savings: 11.1% (1,654 kWh).Although the results are encouraging, the Oregon report urges some caution:We have some reservations about the reliability of the results from the subgroup analyses. Each subgroup comparison began with a relatively small sample of pilot homes and cut it into even smaller pieces to analyze. With such small samples to work with and so many comparisons that the team was interested in, there may have been random fluctuations in the data that resulted in observing spurious differences.In other words, they feel more confident about the numbers based on all the participants, less so about the ones based on things like those who live in manufactured housing, those who used to have a different programmable thermostat, and those who floss religiously on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday every single week. Also, the data cover only one heating season, so running it for multiple years would provide a better picture of what’s happening.Still, one of the biggest takeaways here is that this study found good savings with the Nest thermostat connected to heat pumps. In their white paper, Nest discussed the difficulties of using setbacks with heat pumps and included a U.S. Department of Energy warning: “Programmable thermostats are generally not recommended for heat pumps.” That’s because many of them tend to cause the electric resistance heat to run more as the heat pump attempts to recover from setbacks.Two studies in IndianaThese two projects were done by two different gas and electric utilities in Indiana. The Cadmus Group conducted both studies and wrote the reports. Both studies looked at gas use during heating season and electricity use during cooling season. One of the studies had 400 participating homes, the other 300.The Oregon project was a pre- and post-installation study with the same group of homes. The Indiana studies were different. They compared the energy use in homes with a Nest thermostat to homes with a standard programmable thermostat (the Honeywell TH211) by looking at each relative to homes with non-programmable thermostats as the baseline.Here are the main results from both studies:For heating, the Nest showed ~13% energy savings compared to the baseline homes.For heating, the programmable thermostat showed 8% and 5% savings compared to the baseline.For cooling, the Nest showed 16% and 14% energy savings compared to the baseline homes.For cooling, the programmable thermostat showed 15% and 13% savings compared to the baseline.The Nest beat the baseline homes (non-programmable thermostat) by double digits for both heating and cooling. It also beat the standard programmable thermostat for heating. For cooling, the Nest and the programmable thermostat came out about the same.A white paper from NestThis white paper is a good read even without the energy savings information because the paper discusses a lot of the issues around trying to determine whether or not a given measure saves energy and how you would go about determining the amount of savings. (Read the Background and Methodology sections.)The Nest energy savings analysis is different from both the Oregon and the Indiana studies. The researchers used “pooled” data from a control group of non-Nest users and compared that data to data from the Nest users. The first chart below shows percent savings for the control group. Notice that the center of the data is at 0% savings. In contrast to the control group, the data from the Nest users are shifted to the right of the 0% savings line, as you can see in the second chart.The actual numbers they found for savings of natural gas for heating and electricity for cooling are:9.6% for heating (as a percentage of heating, not total energy use)17.5% for cooling (as a percentage of cooling, not total energy use)The heating number is lower than the other studies, but the cooling number is about the same.The Nest white paper discusses potential biases and the issues surrounding using data from the MyEnergy customers. In the end, though, they conclude that there wasn’t any large bias in the results.Yes, the Nest does save energyThe results here provide a lot of evidence that the Nest Learning Thermostat does indeed save energy. It saves on heating energy with both gas furnaces and heat pumps, and it saves on cooling with air conditioners and heat pumps. All four of the reports go into the details of their methodology, telling how they chose the participants, how they collected and analyzed the data, and more. (Use the links below to download the papers.)One important thing to point out here is that the Oregon and Indiana studies used carefully chosen participants, and they installed the Nest thermostats for them. One question that comes up with Nest data sometimes is, what is the effect of having self-selected gadget-geeks or energy savers on the savings data? In those three studies, that’s a moot point. It seems that the average Nest owner will save energy even when they’re not the kind of people who would go out and buy one on their own.Of course, not everyone buys a Nest because it saves energy. Some people get them just so they can adjust the thermostat remotely from the app on their phone. Maybe it’s even because it’s flossing day, and they have to get up early.The Four ReportsOregon Study (pdf)Indiana Study – NIPSCo (pdf)Indiana Study – VectrenNest white paper (pdf) Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a speaker, writer, energy consultant, RESNET-certified trainer, and the author of the Energy Vanguard Blog.

MPs speak against encroachment by judiciary

first_imgNew Delhi, May 13 (PTI) As Rajya Sabha bade farewell to 53 retiring members, the House saw voices against the alleged “encroachment” by judiciary on the rights of legislature, with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley pressing the need for preserving the supremacy of Parliament in the making of law and budgets. “This House (Rajya Sabha) and the Lok Sabha has the primacy in law-making and budget-making. Law-making and budget-making cannot be decided by any third party,” Jaitley said, in an apparent reference to the judiciary. “If the right to law-making and budget-making goes out of here, it will weaken the parliamentary democracy as well as democracy itself,” the Leader of the Upper House warned. He said the “seriousness” of this issue has to be considered by all segments of the society. “I believe that the maturity of insititutions in the country will one day decide the way forward keeping the logic of Constitution-makers in mind,” the Minister said. The comments came just two days after he made some scathing remarks in the House against the judiciary, saying it was “step by step, brick by brick” encroaching upon the legislature. His remarks had come after the Supreme Court had directed the government to set up an additional fund, besides the NDRF and SDRF, for drought mitigation. Jaitleys views were echoed by some other members in the Rajya Sabha. Samajwadi party leader Ram Gopal Yadav said Parliament members are concerned over “encroachment” on legislatures rights by judiciary. Constitution, he said, has given Parliament the right to legislate laws and make budget. “If that is done by the judiciary, what is the relevance of Parliament,” the retiring member wondered and said the issue should be discussed during the next Monsoon session. Parliamentary honour, strength and supremacy has to be maintained, he said. “Constitution has drawn clear lines.” BSP chief Mayawati, an arch rival of Samajwadi Party, also raked up the issue and said “we should act unitedly, especially on important issues” and rise above political affiliations. “We would have to look within” why judiciary is taking advantage, she said. Senior SAD leader Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa made a case for special session of Parliament to discuss judical reforms. (MORE) PTI SAP NKD ANZ AKK AKKadvertisementlast_img read more

MENTAL-EXPERTS 2 LAST

first_imgSharing a case study at Apollo, Vohra says, “Social mediaSharing a case study at Apollo, Vohra says, “Social media is also triggering relationship breakdown in many cases. A 17- year-old girl came to us after she was harassed by her ex- boyfriend over Facebook. So much so that the girls family had to file a police complaint against the boy, who has become obsessed with her.”He says besides triggering anxiety, depression and self- destructing tendencies, social media platforms have also led to people suffering from “body dysmorphic disorder”.”So we had a 21-year-old girl who was brought to us, who insisted that her nose was imperfect and tried rhinoplasty despite the fact it was alright. Constant bombardment of images on social media, peer pressure and selfie-culture has engendered this narcissistic behaviour that borders on psychological disorders,” Vohra says.Ganga Ram Hospitals Kumar says she gets “cases where young people especially adolescents come to me complaining they have suicidal tendencies and ask what they should do. After going through their history, one realises that many of them had some sort of harassment or bullying on social media.”A 24-year-old Delhi-based professional, who did not wish to be identified, says, “There is this culture of unwanted tagging with nasty posts on Facebook and trolling on Twitter that the social media culture has spawned. I myself have been its victim, so I know.”Though I think social media is a tool to network and be in touch with people who are far off, but excessive use of it is affecting people in a bad way.”advertisementVohra says “social media also has become a platform for catharsis for the youth.”It is an open and free forum, and many of them see this virtual place where they can let out their pent-up emotions or rent anger. Many also post suicide notes on Facebook before claiming their lives, so, it has both pros and cons. And one has to use it judiciously.”Sagar at AIIMS says, the only way forward is to educate the youth when they are in school. “Just like we do it for cigarettes and alcohol use, I think there should be an education and counselling programme in schools for social media too. Since, we are living in a digital era, we cannot say we should divorce ourselves from social media, but we can learn to adapt it the right way.”The World Mental Health Day theme by the UN this year is –Dignity in Mental Health — Psychological & Mental Health First Aid for All.”Social media has taken over real socialisation. Playgrounds are shrinking and children are more into internet gaming then outdoor sports which is a cause of concern… Majority of mental health patients dont seek treatment, just about 10-15 per cent do. That is mostly because of the stigma attached to it,” Sagar says. PTI KND ZMN RCJlast_img read more

Rangers Finish Off Panthers, 6-3

first_imgNEW YORK — Sloppy at the start, strong at the finish. That has been the New York Rangers’ winning formula the past two games, yet they know they need to change the plan — and soon.After a two-game post All-Star break skid, in which the Rangers scored a total of one goal, New York has regained its offensive mojo.The Rangers followed up Saturday’s win over Carolina with a 6-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Feb. 2.In both games, the third period was their best. But if they start slowly when powerhouse Boston comes to town on Feb. 3, the game could be out of reach by the time the final 20 minutes roll around.“We are getting to that point in the season where we’ve got to be desperate for points,” said Rick Nash, who scored two goals to reach 31 for the season and move back into a tie for the NHL lead. “Playing in the third, we didn’t have as many turnovers as we did in the first two periods.”It is no coincidence that the Rangers’ offense has rebounded the past two games when Nash has scored three goals. But they have spread it around, too. Mats Zuccarello scored his first goal in 11 games during New York’s decisive three-goal third period.“I can feel pressure from everyone around to score some goals, so obviously I’d like to score some more,” he said.Dan Boyle scored a deflected goal 8:10 into the third to make it 4-3, and Nash and Zuccarello added insurance tallies.Boyle flipped the puck from the left point, and it hit the stick of veteran Florida defenseman Willie Mitchell and bounded past surprised goalie Roberto Luongo. Zuccarello made it 5-3 with 4:02 left.Carl Hagelin was stopped by Luongo on a penalty shot with 3:19 remaining to keep it a two-goal game, but Nash scored into an empty net at 18:07.The Panthers held a 1-0 lead in the first and dug out of a 3-1 hole in the second, yet fell to 1-6-1 in their past eight.“Every game is must win for us,” forward Nick Bjugstad said. “We can’t afford any nights off. That was an unfortunate bounce.”Kevin Hayes and Marc Staal added goals for the Rangers, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 33 shots for his 334th victory, 20th best in NHL history.Aleksander Barkov, Dave Bolland and Brandon Pirri had Panthers goals. Brad Boyes added two assists, and Luongo made 32 saves. The Panthers will finish their three-game trip to the New York area against the Islanders on Tuesday.“We just can let games like this one get away against teams we are chasing,” Bolland said. “We need momentum, and we had it tonight.”After Hayes and Staal gave the Rangers a 3-1 lead in the second, the play shifted back to the Panthers. Lundqvist briefly stemmed the tide when he denied Jonathan Huberdeau, who came in alone, but he couldn’t hold off Florida for long.Bolland cut the deficit to 3-2 with 7:09 left in the second after he put the puck off the crossbar. The rebound came back to him, and he batted it in for his second goal.Then, during a power play, Bolland sent a hard pass from the goal line out front to Pirri, who dropped to a knee and fired in his seventh — and fourth in five games — with 4:30 remaining.“Even though they came back and they tied it up in the second period, when the game was on the line in the third, I thought we played our best period,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.New York seemed to be in control after getting even on Nash’s first-period goal and then grabbing a two-goal edge when Hayes and Staal scored 6:37 apart.Hayes gave the Rangers their first lead at 2:51 of the second on the power play when Zuccarello sent a pass from the left circle to Hayes for a one-timer from the slot that produced his seventh goal. This one came as his older brother Jimmy — a Panthers forward — watched from the Florida bench.Staal, who played against his brothers Eric and Jordan in New York’s 4-1 win over Carolina, waited with the puck above the right circle and snapped a wrist shot past Luongo at 9:28 for his third.Nash’s first goal gave him his first 30-goal season with New York and eighth in 12 NHL seasons.(IRA PODELL, AP Hockey Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Serbia 2018 World Cup team guide: tactics, key players and expert predictions

first_imgSerbia Share on LinkedIn Read more Twitter Share on Pinterest features Eight years on from a poor World Cup in South Africa in which they finished bottom of Group D, Serbia aim to ignore the similarities with that 2010 campaign – once again they won their qualifying group – and put in a mentally stronger and and more tactically astute display.The early signs do not offer the expected level of promise, however. Serbia seemed on course to reach Russia as comprehensive Group D winners in front of Wales and Republic of Ireland but a series of poor displays towards the end of the qualification campaign, equally poor player selection and a lack of tactical versatility from Slavoljub Muslin saw the experienced manager blamed, sacked and replaced by his assistant, Krstajic, despite Serbia qualifying as group winners.In an effort to distance himself from Muslin and his mentor’s fall, Krstajic introduced a number of tactical tweaks and called up the Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, whose untamed personality did not seem to fit with Muslin’s tranquil nature.Krstajic, a former Werder Bremen defender, had no such dilemmas about including the 23-year-old. “Our best players will always have a place in my team,” he said. “Sergej Milinkovic-Savic proved he can be counted on for the future and is bound to become the backbone of this squad.” Pinterest Topics World Cup 2018 World Cup 2018: Guardian Experts’ Network Which player is going to surprise everyone at the 2018 Fifa World Cup? Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has surprised everyone this season in Serie A, putting in one commanding display after another for Lazio. The 23-year-old dictates the play similarly to Paul Pogba – and has been linked with a move to Manchester United – but is also capable of playing further forward, just off the striker.Which player is likely to disappoint?Dusan Tadic. He must have been affected by some of the negativity surrounding him at Southampton this season and it could disrupt his flow at the World Cup. Tadic played a vital role in helping Serbia reach Russia but the creative midfielder is likely to be pushed further to the right as Krstajic looks to accommodate Milinkovic-Savic. This could easily be a blow to his confidence.What is the realistic aim for Serbia at the 2018 Fifa World Cup and why?The Serbian public tends to harbour bloated expectations about the national team’s chances. Traditionally the country has had high-class individuals who have displayed a chronic lack of togetherness at major competitions. Players and fans consider qualifying for the knockout stage behind Brazil a minimum, and elimination at the last-16 stage might be publicly perceived as a huge underachievement.Milos Markovic writes for Sportske.net.Follow him on Twitter here. Vladimir Stojkovic: Serbia’s prickly partisan trying to forget his ‘ugly past’center_img Reuse this content Share on Facebook World Cup Share on Twitter Share via Email This article is part of the Guardian’s 2018 World Cup Experts’ Network, a cooperation between some of the best media organisations from the 32 countries who have qualified for Russia. theguardian.com is running previews from two countries each day in the run-up to the tournament kicking off on 14 June.Serbia return to the World Cup after failing to qualify for the 2014 tournament. The nation is hoping that Mladen Krstajic’s star-studded squad can overcome a chronic mental fragility which has held them back in the past. Facebook With The Sergeant – as they call him in Italy – in a pivotal midfield position, Krstajic embarked on an Asian tour in November 2017 to prove that the Lazio man could be trusted to play alongside Manchester United’s Nemanja Matic and the Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic. Milinkovic-Savic’s assist for Adem Ljajic – another one of Muslin’s disputed selection choices – in a 1-1 draw against South Korea was deemed more than enough proof that he will have an important role to play in Russia.Steering away from the 3-4-3 formation Muslin relied on for the most part of the qualifiers, Krstajic implemented the biggest change in defence. Regarded as the strongest part of Serbia’s team – along with the burgeoning midfield – a backline including Branislav Ivanovic and Aleksandar Kolarov was expected to help forge an impressive wall in front of the goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic. But Krstajic has shaken things up by introducing a 4-2-3-1 system and made Kolarov his captain, which raised a few eyebrows after Ivanovic was stripped of the armband.The striker is the one part of the team Krstajic will not be altering, with Aleksandar Mitrovic hitting swashbuckling form during his loan at Fulham. The Newcastle reject has come a long way in a matter of months since moving to London and could be Serbia’s biggest fear factor in Russia. He could be the player who glues together all the parts of the puzzle and provides the guts up front that Serbia have been sorely missing on the biggest stage.Probable starting XI Share on WhatsApp Share on Messenger Serbia probable starting XIlast_img read more

Annan convenes first meeting of Global Compact Advisory Council

In a major step towards strengthening Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s expanding “Global Compact” initiative – which promotes action in support of nine internationally accepted principles on human rights, labour rights, and the environment – a group of business executives, international labour leaders, and heads of civil society organizations from across the world met at United Nations Headquarters today for the first session of the Compact’s Advisory Council. The meeting marked the creation of the first UN advisory body composed of both public and private sector leaders, who together will assist the Secretary-General in his effort to promote cooperative solutions to the dilemmas and challenges of globalization. “The world is currently involved in an ongoing historical experiment: attempting to create a truly global and inclusive market,” Mr. Annan said in his opening remarks to the members of the Advisory Council. “The outcome of this experiment depends increasingly on the foresight and political will of leaders in all sectors of society to find pragmatic solutions that transcend ideologies.”The Secretary-General challenged the Advisory Council to “think creatively about measures that might enhance the quality and concrete impact of participation in the Compact.” He also called on the Council to recruit new members and serve as champions for the initiative internationally; to make recommendations on standards of participation that will help protect the integrity of the Global Compact; and to offer suggestions on how to most effectively channel the rapidly growing global interest in the Compact.Speaking at a press briefing after the meeting, Michael Doyle, Special Advisor to the Secretary-General, said the encounter had been productive. “We had a thorough and enthusiastic discussion, taking forward the Global Compact in two areas especially – having to do with questions of governance and also new directions in leadership – so that as the Global Compact continues to grow, it not only grows in numbers, it grows in quality of participation.” To date, the Global Compact, an entirely voluntary initiative, has attracted several hundred companies from countries such as the Russian Federation, China, Brazil, India, Germany, Norway, Indonesia, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States.The 17 members of Advisory Council – all acting in their individual, rather than institutional capacities – have been asked by the Secretary-General to serve rotating terms of two and three years. The Advisory Council will convene for formal meetings twice per year. read more

Central African Republic UN probe set to investigate reports of rights violations

“We want to present to the [UN] Security Council a complete file so the appropriate action can be taken,” said Bernard Acho Muna, who chairs the International Commission of Inquiry tasked with probing reports of human rights violations in the CAR, compiling information, and helping identify the perpetrators of such abuses.The three-person inquiry, established by the Security Council, is expected in the country on Tuesday and will begin gathering evidence amid what UN Emergency Coordinator Valerie Amos recently described as an “extremely grave” situation, after months of inter-religious violence has wrecked State institutions, left millions on the brink of starvation and now threatens to suck in the wider region.Thousands of people are believed to have been killed in the CAR and 2.2 million, about half the population, are in need of humanitarian aid as a result of the conflict, which erupted when Séléka rebels launched attacks in December 2012. The fighting has taken on increasingly sectarian overtones as mainly Christian militias known as anti-Balaka (anti-machete) have taken up arms. The UN estimates that some 650,000 have been internally displaced, while nearly 300,000 other have fled to neighbouring countries.At a news briefing in Geneva, Mr. Muna said the spread of propaganda and the collapse of law and order in the CAR could be a precursor to serious human rights violations, including genocide. “We would like to talk to the refugees, groups of Muslims or groups of Christians who are running away from violence. They have a story to tell [and] those stories might lead us to be able to give a better picture to the Security Council,” he said. He said the investigators have also heard reports of genocide. “I can tell you from my Rwandan experience that there is definitely a question of hate propaganda. I think it is implied in our mandate to see that we don’t wait until genocide has been committed and then we call for prosecution,” said Mr. Muna, who is a former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). “I think it is in our mandate to see how we can stop any advances towards genocide,” he said, but added: “I hope this is only noise and when you put troops on the ground then law and order, it might disappear.” The Commission, which also includes Fatimata M’Baye of Mauritania and Jorge Castañeda of Mexico, is expected to submit its initial report to the Security Council within six months. read more

This Toronto Subway Lego Kit is a Builders Dream

first_img A Canadian transit employee is shaking up the toy sector with his new innovation: a Toronto Rocket subway Lego kit that comes with all the buildable fixings.Aaron Chapman, a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway operator, developed the Lego kit in August when he couldn’t find one in stores. With support from the TTC and his colleagues, Chapman submitted his Lego kit to Lego Ideas, a website where people share Lego product ideas and vote for their favorite Lego design proposals. With 4,243 supporters and 360 days left, Chapman has to get 10,000 supporters to move to the Lego Review round. If he passes this step, his Lego creation could hit shelves in the future.Chapman’s TTC Toronto Rocket Subway Train Lego kit, which comes with 2,946 total pieces (28 pieces of track, 2 TTC Operator mini figures, and 2,910 bricks), is a builder’s dream. It’s replicated like the real Toronto Rocket subway system, so people can create three TTC subway cars that move on tracks. There are additional cool features including slide opening doors and a detailed driver cab that blow average Lego trains away.“A Canadian born TTC operator designs a Canadian Lego set, based on a Canadian made subway train by Bombardier, operating on North America’s third largest transit system, in Canada’s largest city,” wrote Chapman in his Lego Ideas proposal. “I hope the review panel at Lego Ideas will understand this set does not only appeal to the Toronto Lego fans.”Fans of Chapman’s Lego kit are also in for the ultimate holiday treat.

British Gas Court of Appeal decision confirms inclusion of commission in holiday

first_imgThe Court of Appeal has confirmed that holiday pay calculations should include a representative amount of commission-based pay.In the case of British Gas v Lock, Lock, a sales consultant for British Gas, brought an employment tribunal claim for outstanding holiday pay when this was calculated according to his basic salary without taking into account the commission he would usually earn.The Court of Appeal upheld a decision issued by the Employment Appeal Tribunal in February 2016, finding that normal remuneration earned over over a suitable reference period should be taken into account when determining holiday pay.This maintains the decision reached by the European Court of Justice (ECJ), which found that the working time regulations allow Lock to have his holiday pay calculated based on his normal remuneration, which includes taking into account commission payments.The Court of Appeal’s judgement does not specify what the appropriate reference period for the calculation of holiday pay should be in other cases.Andrew Granger, partner in the employment, pensions and mobility group at Taylor Wessing, said: “The court has, as expected, confirmed that workers are entitled to have part of their holiday pay calculated by reference to their normal contractual remuneration measured over a suitable reference period, and that in Mr Lock’s case this means that his average commission earnings over a 12 week period are to be taken into account. But the court did not throw much light on how normal remuneration and the requisite reference period are to be calculated in other cases.“Employers will still need to consider very carefully therefore what exactly constitutes normal remuneration, how and over which period it is to be measured, and, where the issue is not clear cut, whether it is better in financial and HR terms to be proactive and seek agreement with its workers, or to wait for the issue to be raised by or on behalf of those workers.”Aye Limbin Glassey, employment law partner at Shakespeare Martineau, added: “Although the ruling marks a significant step for employers who have been in limbo for sometime over holiday entitlement for employees on commission schemes, the story is far from over and another appeal is highly anticipated.“Employers will now be required to include commission payments in holiday remuneration, and this could have severe financial implications. Despite the potential for an appeal, now is the opportune time for employers to put the necessary measures in place and open lines of communication with beneficiaries.“Agreeing a payment structure with relevant commission-based staff and trade unions will help businesses come to an agreement that has employee wellbeing and business viability at its core. Assessing the needs of the workforce as well as what is financially viable for the business is likely to keep both camps happy, committed and motivated. Failing to do so could open employers up to liabilities over incorrect holiday pay and result in employees requesting backdated payments for commission they were not paid historically.”last_img read more

Alaska Supreme Court Affirms Tribal Court Jurisdiction

first_imgThe Alaska Supreme Court issued a decision today in a long running tribal court jurisdiction case. The case stems from a Minto tribal court decision that terminated parental rights. The case stems from a Minto tribal court decision that terminated parental rights. The father, Edward Parks, was not a Minto tribal member, so he claimed the court did not have authority over him. He tried to take the case to state court and bypass tribal appellate court saying he was not allowed oral presentation of his argument. Natalie Landreth is an attorney with the Native American Rights Fund, the legal organization that defended the adoptive parents against the biological father’s challenge. She says there were two areas of legal clarity provided in the decision. The first is that a plaintiff must exhaust the appellate process in tribal court before taking a challenge to state court.Download AudioLandreth: The second thing is it didn’t adopt what the state vigorously argued along with Mr. Parks which was this idea that you have to be allowed to present complex things in an oral argument format, saying tribal courts have to look like state courts, the court rejected that, saying that’s not the case.What about the issue of tribal court authority over another tribal member not from that community. Was that settled in this decision or is that still out there? Landreth: I think that will depend on circumstances of cases where you might have an odd fact pattern, but this decision does clearly says, the jurisdiction is over that child. If that child is a tribal member of that tribe, then that tribal court has jurisdiction. That isn’t ground breaking, they cited the other Alaska tribal court case we’ve had in the last couple of years , which was the Kaltag decision, Judge Burgess said exactly the same thing, so again they did make a decision on that, but they’re not going out on a limb. They’re not doing something divergent from a court simply following the law.Does this provide more clarity for how the state should see tribal courts and their jurisdiction?Landreth: Absolutely.  Each one of these cases that we’ve been working on for years, is a separate step forward, a different piece of the puzzle which says what we’ve been advocating all along, which is that these courts do have authority to adjudicate children’s cases. There may be 31 flavors of that but that basic premise has not changed and this case is another piece of that puzzle.Natalie Landreth is an attorney with NARF.Alaska Attorney General Michael Geraghty says the decision was not far reaching.Geraghty: The court decided the case on fairly narrow grounds, that Mr. Parks had not exhausted his tribal court remedies. So I think we’ve learned something from the opinion and that is positive in the sense that litigants before tribal courts, need to avail themselves of all remedies and appeals before the tribal courts before they go to state courts.When you say that this is a narrow decision, are you saying that in your mind it’s not settled law then that the tribal courts have authority beyond their immediate tribal members?Geraghty: That question was not decided. Which was did the tribal court have jurisdiction over Mr. Parks, a non-member who had never lived or resided in Minto. You can read some things in the court’s opinion but ultimately it did not reach that issue, which is the one the state was weighing in on, when we intervened.Why is it seen as an important fight for the state to challenge tribal court authority givien the problems in rural Alaska and the need for help in administrating justice in tribal communities. What’s the long range concern about tribal authority that keeps the state arguing against some of these tribal court decisions?Geraghty:  Well, I think….Mr. Parks case was terminating his parental rights. That’s not in the grand scheme of things probably a public safety issue. We do mean to make progress on that front and we’re not challenging tribal court authority on that front, we’re looking for ways to work with them to improve public safety. The case of Mr. Parks, when you’re dealing with family issues that are under the Indian Child Welfare Act. The issues, like Mr. Parks, they’re citizens of Alaska. They’re guaranteed certain rights under the constitution of our state. And when they go to state court claiming that those rights have been trampled or not observed, they’ve not received due process, yes, I take an interest in those.Michael Geraghty is Alaska’s Attorney General.last_img read more

Pakistan sees progress after hosting AfghanTaliban talks

first_imgISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan said Wednesday that the first official face-to-face discussions between Afghan government officials and the Taliban have made progress, with the two sides agreeing at a meeting near Islamabad to work on confidence-building measures and hold more such talks after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.The statement by the Foreign Ministry came after Islamabad hosted the landmark, one-day talks Tuesday at the hilltop resort of Murree, close to the Pakistani capital. The meeting, supervised by U.S. and Chinese representatives, ended with both sides agreeing to meet again, the Foreign Ministry statement said. “Our political office has complete authority and capability … to hold or suspend talks whenever or wherever it wants,” Mujahid said.Pakistan’s prime minister, Nawaz Sharif described the talks as “a major breakthrough.”Sharif’s close aide, lawmaker Abdul Qayum told a local TV station the latest round was a continuation of an earlier one held in China in February, though Beijing and other officials have not confirmed this. “There’re some Taliban who still don’t want peace. There’re others who want to reconcile,” said Qayum.The Pakistan and the Afghan government statements did not mention any of the participants by name.But a Pakistani intelligence official familiar with the meeting said the Taliban delegation was led by Mullah Abbas Stanekza and also included Mullah Jalil, both considered important Afghan Taliban leaders.Afghan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Karzai led President Ghani’s team, which also included a member of the High Peace Council, Haji Din Mohammad, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.He said Tuesday’s meeting took place at a government rest-house and lasted for hours, starting with an iftar — the evening meal with which Muslims break the daytime fast during Ramadan — and ending with a pre-dawn meal in the early hours Wednesday. The participants talked about working on minimizing civilian casualties at their next meeting, the official added. How do cataracts affect your vision? Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Still, Islamabad’s hosting of the talks has raised suspicion among some Afghan politicians, who believe Pakistan is interfering and seeking dominance over their country.Nasrullah Sadieqizada, an Afghan parliament member, called the talks “Pakistani propaganda.”The White House praised the Pakistani government for helping facilitate the meeting.“This is an important step in advancing prospects for a credible peace,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “The United States commends the government of Afghanistan’s prioritization of peace and reconciliation efforts with the Taliban.”___Associated Press Writers Amir Shah and Rahim Faiez in Kabul, Afghanistan, Munir Ahmed in Islamabad and Julie Pace in Washington contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Comments   Share   Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall 5 treatments for adult scoliosis New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories The talks came after several informal contacts between the Taliban and Afghan government representatives, most recently in Qatar and Norway. The fact that Tuesday’s talks were the first formally acknowledged by the Afghan government and the semi-public nature of the meeting suggested possible progress, after years of frustration in trying to bring the two sides together.The Islamabad statement said the participants recognized the need to “develop confidence-building measures” and exchanged views on ways to bring peace and reconciliation to Afghanistan, where fighting has continued since the Taliban were removed from power by U.S.-led forces in 2001.Since taking office in September, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has made it a priority to find a peace settlement for his war-battered country. He has sought Pakistan’s help in bringing the Taliban to the negotiations, since Islamabad is believed to wield influence over the group.Afghan forces are now bearing the brunt of the insurgency after the U.S. and NATO forces reduced their combat role in Afghanistan at the start of the year, with Washington cutting its troop presence in the country.The Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the development, praising Pakistan and thanking Washington and China. “We believe that if there is a good and strong intention in the peace process, there will be good results,” Kabul said. Previous efforts to start a dialogue had stalled. Also, there have been differences among the Taliban over the talks in the past. It was not clear whether the Taliban representatives who attended the Pakistan meeting had the green light from their supreme leader, Mullah Omar, or the insurgents’ political office in Qatar, which was specifically set up to work toward a peace deal.Mullah Omar has not been seen in public for over a decade and the Taliban themselves are divided among various factions and groups. Some of the Afghan insurgents have also recently pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group fighting in Syria and Iraq.Analysts believe there is no guarantee all factions would fall in line — even if the talks made significant breakthroughs. Sherry Rehman, Pakistan’s former ambassador to Washington told a local TV station that with so many groups in the mix, it is likely each would question what it could gain from peace.“I don’t see a ceasefire anytime soon, say in next six months,” she added.A Taliban statement emailed to the media in Kabul by the insurgent group’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid did not provide clarity on whether the talks were fully endorsed by the Taliban leadership.

Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by P Vaidyanathan Iyer | Updated: September 21 2016 3:47 pm A more meaningful exercise could be for the government to encourage larger public participation in Budget-making Top News The government’s plan to advance the Budget date to January instead of February-end helps it on a couple of counts The first: it obviates the administrative need of presenting a Vote On Account to allow for government spending in the first few months of the financial year India follows the April 1-March 31 financial year While the Budget is presented at the end of February it is passed by both the Houses of Parliament only by mid-May This makes it necessary for the finance ministry to get approved a Vote On Account by Parliament A VoA allows the government to draw funds from the Consolidated Fund of India for routine government expenditure till the Union Budget is approved by both the houses The second: it facilitates more planned spending by various ministries and departments in the government during the first quarter Government expenditure in the first quarter is generally lackadaisical In fact despite stringent guidelines on spending and reminders by the finance ministry many ministries and departments bunch their expenditure in the second half and more so in the last quarter of the financial year lending themselves to criticism of inefficient spending The advancing of the Budget date should however not be seen in isolation with the government also considering a change in the financial year A committee under former Chief Economic Advisor Shankar Acharya was set up on July 6 to examine the desirability and feasibility of having a new financial year It will examine the merits and demerits of various dates for the commencement of the financial year including the existing April 1-March 31 Two new financial year dates the committee may study are: one the calendar year January 1-December 31 that aligns India with most countries and global financial institutions such as IMF and the World Bank and two October-September because the government has a good idea of how the country’s principal monsoon season (South-West monsoon in June-September) has fared and its likely impact on agriculture The committee is required to submit its report before December 31 this year Meanwhile a Niti Aayog paper has noted that there is a need to change the financial year for better Budget planning and has noted that January-December is most widely followed across countries and by UN bodies and also by 70 per cent of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies So for the move to be much more than a mere statement of ‘change’ it must not only address the issue of immediate concern that is better expenditure planning but also take into account the possibility of a change in the financial year currently being studied by the Shankar Acharya committee A more meaningful exercise could be for the government to encourage larger public participation in Budget-making It can do so by placing the proposed expenditure plan for the forthcoming year in the public domain This will lend itself to wider discussion and debate ahead of the actual presentation of the Budget and perhaps influence a more efficient spending programme For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top
