Italy presses ahead with online gambling ad ban

first_img Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The new Italian government is pressing ahead with plans to ban advertising for online betting services after the country’s Deputy Prime Minister, Luigi Di Maio, issued a so-called ‘dignity decree’.As part of the decree, there will be a “prohibition of gambling advertising”, said Di Maio, who is the leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, the biggest political party in the coalition government since the country’s general election in March.The government had also previously said that it would impose “strict limits on forms of gambling that allow repeated bets”, as well as a “complete ban” on gambling-related sponsorships.The government also aims to cut the number of gambling terminals by one-third, but Di Maio, who is also the Minister for Economic Development, Labour and Social Policies, has said that the crackdown on the industry will begin with advertising.However, he has also insisted that he does not wish to ban gambling in its entirety.In April, Italian regulator Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM) received online gambling licence applications from 80 operators. Some companies opted to put forward separate applications for multiple licenses, with the fee for each licence set at €200,000 ($250,000).Bet365, PokerStars, Luckia, Videoslots and Lottomatica were among the brands to have submitted an application, with the new licences scheduled to be valid until December 31, 2022.Related article: Italy names online gaming licence applicants Tags: Online Gambling Italy presses ahead with online gambling ad ban Topics: Marketing & affiliates 15th June 2018 | By contenteditor New Italian government to press ahead with plans to ban advertising for online betting services after Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio issued a so-called ‘dignity decree’ Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Marketing & affiliates Email Addresslast_img read more

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter DraftKings betting on NJ launch for NFL season AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 18th July 2018 | By contenteditor Atlantic City casinos signal intent with betting applications DraftKings’ sports betting platform is set for go in New Jersey in time for the NFL season after its state partner, Resorts Casino, submitted its licence application ahead of Monday’s deadline. Atlantic City’s casinos have put their money on sports betting after applying en masse for New Jersey licences in time for the deadline given by the authorities, who want to be able to scrutinise submissions before the NFL season starts in early September.Mobile and online betting should also be live in New Jersey well before the football begins.Of the nine casinos in the east coast’s gaming capital, just the Borgata – by far the city’s biggest gambling establishment – and Ocean Resorts, which is partnered with William Hill, have launched sports betting since it was legalised last month.More than $16m (£12.2m/€13.8m) was wagered in the state in the first two weeks of operations after launch on June 14. Resorts Casino partnered with DraftKings last month, announcing plans to launch a sports betting app along with a web-based platform. A flurry of other properties hurried to submit their documents with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement by Monday.Indeed, the only casino that does not appear to have submitted a bid is the Tropicana, which is in the process of being sold to Eldorado Resorts. The deal, announced earlier this year, is due to complete by the end of the year.Eldorado did not respond to an emailed request by iGamingBusiness.com over its plans for the Tropicana, which is the state’s second biggest casino in terms of total gaming revenue.According to the Associated Press, the Golden Nugget and Caesars’ three properties – Caesar’s Harrah’s and Bally’s – have applied for in-person and mobile sports betting.Hard Rock, which is partnered with Bet365, is awaiting approval of its application.  Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Regions: US New Jersey Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Sports betting Email Addresslast_img read more

I’m choosing FTSE 100 stocks over cash to get rich and retire earlycenter_img Harvey Jones | Friday, 18th December, 2020 The pandemic has been bad for dividends, with more than half of FTSE 100 stocks cutting, deferring or cancelling shareholder payouts worth more than £37bn. That’s a massive blow for investors, although the good news is that we should still pocket almost £60bn this year, according to the latest AJ Bell Dividend Dashboard.The outlook for 2021 is much brighter. AJ Bell forecasts that dividend payments from FTSE 100 stocks will increase by 18%, an increase of £10.9bn. That means collectively we will get more than £70bn next year.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Covid-19 has been been even worse for cash, with the Bank of England slashing interest rates to just 0.1%. Do you know how much the big high street banks pay on their savings accounts now? A vanishingly low 0.01%. Can’t imagine finding a comfortable retirement based on that kind of return.I’m backing FTSE 100 stocks over savingsThe really bad news about cash is that there is no sign of interest rates picking up in the near future. We need a full-blooded economic recovery before that happens. I’m optimistic about 2021, but not that optimistic. By contrast, FTSE 100 dividend stocks are already fighting back.Some 15 FTSE 100 stocks have now confirmed plans to restore dividends this fiscal year. Payouts should be worth up to £3bn in total. There is a long way to go to make good this year’s losses, but it is a step in the right direction.Here’s the full list of those FTSE 100 stock dividend restorers: BAE Systems, Ferguson, Smurfit Kappa Group, Aviva, Sainsbury’s, Mondi, Smiths Group, Persimmon, WPP, Land Securities Group, British Land, Bunzl, Rentokil Initial, DS Smith and Taylor Wimpey. Also, BT Group has signalled that it will restore its payout next year.Of these, BAE Systems is set to be the most generous, lining up dividends totalling £746m, followed by Ferguson (£360m) and Smurfit Kappa and Aviva (both £236m).All hail the return of the dividend!This gives investors a wealth of income-paying FTSE 100 stocks to aim at next year, and there are some incredible yields on offer. Fund manager M&G, tobacco giants Imperial Brands Group and British American Tobacco, and mining company Polymetal International are forecast to be the highest yielding stocks in 2021.Cash will destroy your wealthM&G is expected to yield a whopping 9.5% in 2020, followed by Imperial Brands at 9.3%. Polymetal and British American Tobacco come next, both at 8.4%. These are incredible levels of income, especially when you compare them to cash.Investing in shares is obviously riskier than leaving money in the bank, because your capital is at risk. However, if you are investing for periods of five years or longer, you have plenty of time to fight back from any short-term market correction.The longer you invest, the more your money grows. With cash, the opposite is true. The longer you leave your money in the bank, the more inflation will erode its value. That is why I am once again shunning cash in 2021, and investing in top FTSE 100 stocks.Interest of 0.01% on cash or yields of up to 9.5% on stocks? That’s why I reckon shares are the best way to get rich and retire early. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Dan Lydiate comeback after breaking his neck

first_imgSunday Dec 27, 2009 Dan Lydiate comeback after breaking his neck Two years after suffering a career-threatening injury, Newport-Gwent Dragons flanker Dan Lydiate made a remarkable comeback. This is the story of how he not only made it back into professional rugby, but earned his first cap for his country. Twenty one year old Lydiate broke his neck when playing a Heineken Cup group match against Perpignan two years ago, leaving him with temporary paralysis and requiring surgery. “I wasnt knocked unconscious or anything like that,” he says. “I remember exactly how it happened and laying there thinking it is not good. It was a pretty scary time. “When it happens, you lose the feeling in your arms and legs. Anybody would be scared. The medical people were also scared to move me at first, but they took all the necessary precautions and I couldnt fault them.” The collision left him with a crushed disc, broken vertebra, and torn ligaments in his neck. He underwent surgery in November 2007, not knowing what the future held. “I didnt know if I would walk or whatever, but it was established I was going to be fine,” he said. “The next question was whether I would be able to play again. Once I had the operation, they said there was no reason why I couldnt. You just start building from there.” He was back walking again within three weeks, but a career in the physically bruising world of rugby looked likely to be improbable. He sat out of the game, doing a bit of work on the family farm, and wondering if hed ever make it back after such an ordeal. Watching Wales win the Grand Slam in 2008 added to the feeling of disappointment he had to deal with while unable to play. “It was terribly frustrating,” said Lydiate. “I love my rugby and was chuffed that Wales had won the Grand Slam. But I found it too difficult to watch at times. “I suppose they were the darkest days, although through it all, I never let go of the possibility of getting back and maybe, one day, playing at that level.” Exactly two years on from the fateful night, he made his debut against Argentina off the bench at the Millennium Stadium. It was the culmination of a dream that he’d worked hard for after the horrific injury that almost changed his life forever. “When things like that happen, you are just happy to walk again,” he said. “Then, once you start training, you get the bug again and start wondering ‘what if?’.” He only got ten minutes to play against Argentina, but loved every moment of it. “I havent stopped smiling,” he said, “I kept my cap on as long as I could in the evening function, it was a huge honour for me. “My family were all down at the game and my mam didnt stop crying all day, she still had tears in her eyes on Sunday,” he said after his debut.

When a young couple approached Heliotrope Architects and asked them to design a home with an art studio inside, all parties sat around the table contributing ideas – some atypical. The couple, an artist and an engineer, listed several additional criteria for their new home: a contemporary style, but not out of place with the rest of the Capitol Hill neighborhood; a visual connection to the street balanced with privacy; a strong relationship between the interior and exterior; lots of natural light; an interior with an art-gallery-feel to accommodate their growing art collection; and a separate guest wing.Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderThe resulting layout is reminiscent of a checker-board pattern, alternating between interior and exterior spaces. The main living and dining areas extend from the front entry courtyard to the rear patio courtyard, allowing for visual penetration from the backyard through to the front yard and street. Because the main floor of the home is elevated above grade, it allows for occupants to observe the street but remain private, creating a sense of prospect and refuge in a dense urban setting.Save this picture!Main Floor PlanThe art studio, which occupies a double height space with a cathedral ceiling, is adjacent to the main living area, but sunk a half level to help establish a separation. “The goal here,” says architect Mike Mora, “is to maintain a connection between the two primary occupants as they live their lives in the home.” This became a theme for the entire house, creating a visual connection from one point in the house to another point, often through a framed view of the landscape. From the master suite one can look through windows onto a Japanese garden and the kitchen beyond.Save this picture!©  Benjamin Benschneider“We wanted the structure to look like a house, not a box,” explains Mora. “And the clients wanted to be good neighbors, so the physical characteristics of the other houses on the street influenced the size, shape, and construction of the new design.” The gable roof matches the surrounding residences. The flat roof has a garden on top. The house is spread out over the site, in part because that allows for more interior and exterior connections, but it also keeps the overall presence of the structure lower and more congruent with surrounding homes.Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderThe new 3,953 square foot residence, built by Dovetail, includes custom windows, a custom kitchen with walnut countertops, and custom bookshelves, one running the length of the living room. The custom bathroom cabinets are made of Western Red cedar, as is the ofuro, the Japanese soaking tub, built with traditional joinery methods. The flooring is a combination of polished concrete, tile, and myrtle wood. The façade is clad in stained cedar. Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderSustainable features include an eco-friendly fluid-applied waterproofing barrier, radiant floor heating, a green roof of succulents, and a backyard rain garden that absorbs a large portion of the rainwater runoff from the roof.Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderThe clients often find themselves working side-by-side in the art studio, one creating encaustic and mixed-media paintings, and one building websites. Ultimately, the residence defers to the interesting lives of its occupants with a simple, elegant, low-ego design – a house as a frame, not a subject.Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderProduct Description. Perhaps the principal material relevant to the project’s architecture is white painted gypsum wall board.  This is the case for two reasons in particular: one is the client is an artist with a growing collection of art and the white wall surface is the best way to display the art, and two the project was budget-driven and white painted sheetrock is an economy material.  So the choice gave us both what we wanted for purpose and needed for resources available.Save this picture!©  Benjamin BenschneiderProject gallerySee allShow lessToranoko Nursery / Takashige Yamashita OfficeSelected ProjectsArchitect’17 “BAAN BAAN Reconsidering Dwelling”Exhibition Share 360 Analytics “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHeliotrope ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeattleUnited StatesPublished on February 13, 2017Cite: “Artist Residence / Heliotrope Architects” 13 Feb 2017.

On the picket line

first_imgMinneapolis janitors stage protestsThousands of Twin Cities janitors, members of Service Employees Local 26, held picket lines outside the places they normally clean on Feb. 17. Working without a contract since December, the workers are demanding an immediate pay raise for both full-time and part-time janitors to $15 an hour as well as limits to an “ever-­increasing workload.”Inspired by Local 26, hundreds of nonunion janitors, mostly immigrants hired by contractors to clean stores like Macy’s, Kohl’s and Sears, protested the next day for fair wages and better working conditions. In addition to picketing stores where they work, some protesters blocked traffic leading to downtown Minneapolis to ­demand an end to racial and economic disparities in Minnesota. (minnesota.cbslocal.com, Feb. 17 and 18)NLRB files complaint: ATI lockout violates labor lawWhen Pittsburgh-based defense contractor Allegheny Technologies Inc. and four subsidiaries locked out 2,200 members of the Steelworkers union (USW) at 12 plants in six states on Aug. 15, it violated federal labor laws, according to a 31-page complaint written by Region 6 of the National Labor Relations Board on Feb. 11. ATI was cited for more than 20 instances of bargaining in bad faith, illegally interrogating workers and threatening to fire workers who went on strike. The ­complaint was based on unfair labor practice charges filed by the USW in early 2016.Steelworkers President Leo W. Gerard praised the citation: “The company has, since day one, engaged in a pattern of intimidation, manipulation and bad faith bargaining in a blatant attempt to force hardworking people into accepting deep cuts in pay and benefits.” The complaint will be heard by an NLRB administrative law judge on May 23. (usw.org, Feb. 12; cantonrep.com, Feb. 12)Stay tuned. This case has precedent-setting potential since many companies have resorted to lockouts to curtail strikes in the recent period.Sea-Tac Airport workers sue for unpaid wagesDespite a 2013 ballot referendum setting the legal minimum wage for transportation and hospitality workers in SeaTac, Wash., at $15 an hour, an estimated 1,500 airport workers, out of 5,000, are still being paid below the legal minimum. Workers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, including janitors, baggage handlers, cleaners, refuelers and others, filed class action suits Feb. 17 against more than a dozen employers. The suits accuse the employers of illegally withholding amounts as high as $20,000 per worker since the minimum wage was raised over two years ago. (It was later adjusted for inflation to $15.24 by a city ordinance.) One lawyer representing the workers estimates that the total withheld, including benefits and overtime pay, is as high as $62.5 million.According to attorney Duncan Turner, though many wage-theft victims have come forward to demand justice, “We talked to a lot of people who were just too afraid” of losing their jobs. (Associated Press, Feb. 17)Demand fair contract for U.S./Mexican copper workersThe Steelworkers union in the U.S. and Los Mineros in Mexico filed complaints Feb. 18 accusing Mexican mining conglomerate Grupo Mexico and its U.S. subsidiary, Asarco, of violating workers’ rights on both sides of the border. The unions asked the U.S. National Contact Point for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises to foster dialogue between the parties. Though the specific terms of the complaint are confidential, the USW has accused Tucson, Ariz.-based Asarco of multiple unfair labor practices, including threatening workers, unlawfully implementing changes in workplace conditions and failing to negotiate with the USW and seven other unions at its five U.S. facilities. The National Labor Relations Board has scheduled a hearing on the complaints for March 15.More than 2,000 USW members in Asarco’s copper mines, smelter and refinery in Arizona and Texas have been working without a contract since June 2013. Even though Asarco’s net income was $1.5 billion in 2013 — Grupo Mexico’s net income was $1.7 billion in 2013 — Asarco seeks to divide the workers by offering lower benefits to new employees. The USW, the other U.S. unions and Los Mineros have united against that and other changes. On Dec. 1, Asarco implemented portions of their so-called “last, best and final offer,” changing the workers’ compensation and benefits without their agreement.The filing comes as workers marked the 10th anniversary of an explosion at the Grupo Mexico mine at Pasta de Conchos in the state of Coahuila that killed 65 workers. The bodies of 63 of those miners remain trapped underground. Representatives of the USW marched with Los Mineros members in Mexico City on Feb. 19 to demand recovery of the bodies, compensation for the families of the victims, and prosecution of responsible company and government officials. The two unions have had a ­strategic alliance since 2005.

Human rights activists arrested in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City during Olympic torch relay

first_img RSF_en April 30, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Human rights activists arrested in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City during Olympic torch relay VietnamAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrests of about 10 opposition activists that reportedly took place in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City today, coinciding with the Ho Chi Minh City leg of the Olympic torch relay. The government unfortunately kept its recent promise to crack down on “hostile forces always ready to disturb the peace.””The government must release the people who were arrested in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for peacefully demonstrating for an improvement in the human rights situation in Vietnam and China,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The behaviour of the police is evidence of the government’s intransigence towards any form of criticism, and of its desire not to upset its powerful Chinese neighbour despite their territorial disputes.”Two dissidents were arrested in Hanoi while protesting against the Beijing Olympic Games. They were Nguyen Xuan Nghia, a representative of the Bloc 8406 pro-democracy group in Haiphong, and Vu Hung, a teacher. Uniformed police quickly arrested them outside the Dong Xuan market when they unfurled a “Beijing 2008” flag with the Reporters Without Borders graphic of the Olympic rings transformed into handcuffs. April 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang News Receive email alerts Follow the news on Vietnam News Commenting on their arrest, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said: “We would like to point that these two people are not members of our organisation but we support their peaceful demonstration.”There was a heavy police presence outside both the Dong Xuan market and the Chinese embassy, and onlookers and foreign journalists were forced to leave the area.At least eight others dissidents, Vi Duc Hoi, Phan Thanh Nghien, Le Thi Kim Thu, Tran Duc Thach, Do Duy Thong, Nguyen Ba Dang, Nguyeng Van Tuc et Monieur Chau, are also known to have been arrested today in Hanoi, while two more, one of them wearing a Reporters Without Borders T-shirt, were arrested in Ho Chi Minh City. A group of a students was also arrested in Ho Chi Minh City a few days before the torch relay.The outlawed party Viet Tan announced that about 12 of activists were arrested in different parts of the country.Nguyen Hoang Hai, an independent journalist who is better known by his blogging pseudonym of Dieu Cay, was arrested on 19 April in the southern city of Dalat. He had participated in protests against Chinese policy in Ho Chi Minh City earlier this year.A territorial dispute between China and Vietnam over the Spratly Islands and Paracel Islands in the South China Sea has prompted a great deal of criticism that is not limited to opposition groups. But calls for demonstrations in Hanoi posted on the blogs of government opponents appear not to have been heeded.Prime Minister Nguyn Tan Dung called on 20 April for “absolute security” during the Olympic torch relay in Ho Chi Minh City and said no incident would be tolerated. Describing the relay as “testimony of the special friendship between Vietnam and China,” he warned against the “hostile forces” that might be tempted to try to disrupt it.

In an insightful and highly specific presentation entitled Managing Business Success Through Tax Planning And Minimalization, CPA Peter Stephan showed how a business owner experiencing the success and growth could avoid the pitfalls of tax problems.After being introduced by James Harwood of Total HR Management, Peter Stephan explained in detail the tax rate intricacies of the federal government. The purpose was to show the business owners how the IRS gets you in the beginning, in the end, and in the middle as well. Basically, if a percentage of your income can be taken to cover a government cost, the IRS is going to do their best to take it. Even if tax rates are lower than they have almost ever been, American taxpayers are still being hit hard from a variety of angles. This is why tax planning is so very important.What proved truly intriguing about Peter Stephan’s presentation was the powerful point that most tax controversy and tax resolution problems for business owners can be avoided through effective tax planning. Such tax planning should begin at the outset as a sole proprietorship evolves into an actual business entity. By correctly choosing the right business entity, Peter Stephan explained how future financial difficulties and tax challenges could be avoided.For example, Peter Stephan mentioned how lawyers always seem to recommend that their clients set up an LLC or a Limited Liability Corporation. When a new LLC client with tax problems approaches Peter Stephan and the Tax Resolution Institute for help, a first question that Peter asks is the name and number of the lawyer who recommended their choice of entity. Peter Stephan asks for the name and number not because he wants to contact the lawyer, but because he wants to make sure that he never uses or recommends him in the future. As opposed to a corporation or S corporation, a limited liability corporation comes with too much negative financial baggage and tax difficulties.When it comes to questions of individual income tax issues and finding the best way to achieve tax minimalization, Peter Stephan explained that direct action and planning need to be taken. As Peter Stephan told his audience with a knowing smile, “When it comes to spending, my motto is pretty basic and straightforward: ‘If I can’t deduct it, I don’t do it.’” After all, with an income tax burden hitting your pocket hard from all angles and at the beginning, in the middle and at the end, it makes sense to do everything you can to reduce that burden.After his presentation, Peter Stephan of the Tax Resolution Institute answered questions from the audience of Pasadena business owners. Showing a true willingness to help, Peter Stephan spent an extra thirty minutes speaking individually with attendees in order to discuss specific challenges. Once again, the Business Growth Workshop at the University Club has proven to be one of the best additions to the Pasadena professional arena in 2014.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

Bob Childs was also sent off in added time.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Lee’s charges showed maturity to kill the game off from that moment and have now won four games on the trot if you include the pre-season wins in Limerick’s McGrath Cup victory. Following the win, Lee spoke of the pleasure he took in seeing his side grind out the win.“Really happy for the lads. There was a new juncture for us to try and manage coming down here and the expectation that has gone with it. We had that expectation last year from Tipperary to Cork and we didn’t manage it.“This time around we did. It was hard fought as we would have been saying all along. There is nothing easy, certainly there is nothing easy down here. We are just glad to get out with the victory. We finished up with 13 men again and we were holding on.“The lads were out on there feet. They are in great shape physically so when you see an awful lot of them suffering at that point it tells you the shift that they have just put in. They didn’t panic which was great.” he said.Limerick struggled at times in the first half against a well drilled Waterford side. Seamus O’Carroll put Limerick ahead in the opening minute, but Waterford hit four on the bounce to lead midway through the first half.The travelling team missed two goal chances early on, but finally hit the target when Adrian Enright finished off a fine team move. Limerick settled into their task much better in the second half with Enright, Tommy Griffin, Josh Ryan and Cillian Fahy all raising white flags.Danny Neville followed up his impressive McGrath Cup Final showing against Cork with another three points. Limerick welcome London to Kilmallock on Sunday (12pm) and Lee is expecting a strong challenge from the visitors despite their heavy defeat to Sligo in their opening game.Danny Neville evades the Cork challanges in the 2020 McGrath Cup Final“There is nothing easy. When there is expectation there is extra pressure. We would have played Clare, Cork, Westmeath and Tipperary and we have performed against them, but there is really no pressure on you going into them games.“But when you have the pressure and the expectation of winning, that changes the dynamic quite quickly and swiftly. We just have to manage it and not get complacent.“We are not experienced enough to know how to handle these situations so we have to be really careful. That’s what we will be focusing on.” he added.The post Lee pleased with heart shown in win over Waterford appeared first on Sporting Limerick.last_img read more

first_imgNews UpdatesDelhi High Court Issues Notice In Plea Challenging Govt’s Permission Given For Conducting Phase II, III Clinical Trials Of Covaxin In Age Group Of 2-18 Years Nupur Thapliyal18 May 2021 11:09 PMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court has issued notice in plea challenging the notification issued by the Central Government for conducting phase II and III clinical trials of covaxin in the age group of 2 to 18 years stating them to be “healthy volunteers”. The plea also seeks directions on the State to criminally prosecute persons involved in the trials in the event of death or loss of life of any minor or toddler.Advertisement The plea moved by one Sanjeev Kumar makes Union of India, Central Drug Standard Control Organization, Ministry of Women and Child Development and Bharat Biotech Limited as Respondents in the matter.The petition has been filed seeking quashing of the order passed by the Central Government dated May 13, 2021 giving permission to Bharat Biotech Limited for conducting Covaxin phase II and III clinical trials on 525 “healthy volunteers” falling under the age group of 2 to 18 years.Advertisement Stating that the order is prima facie unlawful and arbitrary, the plea states thus:”A person can offer to do anything only if he/she is capable of understanding the consequences of his/her act. In the present case, the subject matter of clinical trials being minors (even toddlers who- for the reason of their age only- are not capable of even speaking and understanding languages in proper manner) cannot be supposed to Volunteer for the aforesaid clinical testing. This Hon’ble Court is requested to kindly adjudge as to whether the respondents have ensured the ‘Voluntariness of the young toddlers’ for allegedly volunteering as subject matter of the aforesaid elinical trial which involves very clear possibility of loss of life and/ or loss of peaceful and pleasant enjoyment of life to a toddler/ minor child.”Advertisement Advertisement The plea also avers that such a volunteer is also required to enter into a contract with the Institute carrying the clinical trial for various aspects dealing with the compensation, damages in case the clinical trial fails and is also required to give his/her consent that he/she has understood the entire agreement and is willing to volunteer for the clinical trial on the terms and conditions stipulated in the written contract.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement “In this case, since the alleged volunteers belong to the age group between 2 to 18 years, it is crystal clear that no such contract could be signed by the alleged volunteers (who are all minors and hence not competent to contract) as the same is in the teeth of sec 2(g), 10, 11 & 12 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872.” The plea submits.In view of this, the plea states that the Order does not provide any details of the parents or legal guardians or persons who have come into contact to such minors amongst the 525 children.”For that in any view of the matter, the impugned order violates Article 21 of the Constitution of India, Preamble and Article-6 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, 1990 to which India is a signatory and hence a State Party, The Principles inherent under the Indian Contract Act 1872 as well as the other settled principles of law and natural justice.” The plea submits further. The plea states the following prayers:- Quash and set aside the Impugned Order dated 13/05/2021 passed by the respondents for conducting phase II,III clinical trial of Whole Virion Inactivated Coronavirus Vaccine on healthy volunteers from the age group ranging between 2 to 18 years. – Direct the respondents to place on record the details of the 525 children who will be subjected to phase II/III clinical trial of Whole Virion Inactivated Coronavirus Vaccines also the records of vaccination of their parents/ legal guardians and family members and other persons who come in close contact of such toddlers/ children for taking their care. – Direct the respondents to produce the contracts under which the 525 children have been/ would be made Volunteers for the phase II/III clinical trial of Whole Virion Inactivated Coronavirus Vaccine.- Direct the State to criminally prosecute the persons involved in such trials and the persons having authorized conduct of such trials in the event of any death or loss of peaceful and pleasant enjoyment of life of any toddler or a minor children.TagsDelhi High Court Covaxin Clinical Trial Minor Children COVID -19 second covid wave Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says her liver cancer has returned

first_imgMark Wilson/Getty ImagesBy DEVIN DWYER, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed Friday that she’s undergoing chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of cancer.In a statement, Ginsburg said she began treatment in May after a scan in February discovered lesions on her liver.Immunotherapy was first attempted but “proved unsuccessful,” she said.At 87, Ginsburg is the court’s oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc. She is a four-time cancer survivor.Earlier this week, Ginsburg was hospitalized overnight for treatment of a possible infection — the second time since May, when the court said she was being treated for a “benign gallbladder condition.”Ginsburg said Friday those hospitalizations were “unrelated” to the cancer recurrence.“The chemotherapy course, however, is yielding positive results,” Ginsburg said. “Satisfied that my treatment course is now clear, I am providing this information.”Justice Ginsburg has been the most transparent member of the court when it comes to sharing information with the public about her health.Bi-weekly chemotherapy appears to be containing her disease for now, Ginsburg said.“My most recent scan on July 7 indicated significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease. I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment,” she said in that statement.Throughout her health battles over the years Ginsburg has vowed to continue serving as long as she is physically and mentally able.Her treatments to date have not impacted her ability to participate in court business. Just this week she joined the dissent in two high-profile death penalty cases.In May, she joined the court’s telephonic oral arguments by phone from the hospital and participated in questioning.“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that,” she said Friday.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Coronavirus live updates: CDC acknowledges airborne spread in updated guidance

first_imgMyriam Borzee/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 961,000 people worldwide.Over 31.1 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has varied from country-to-country. Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica.The United States is the worst-affected country, with more than 6.8 million diagnosed cases and at least 199,552 deaths.California has the most cases of any U.S. state, with more than 786,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 713,000 cases and over 683,000 cases, respectively.Nearly 170 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least six of which are in crucial phase three trials.Here’s how the news is developing Monday. All times Eastern:Sep 21, 11:20 amEastern Michigan University to test campus wastewater for COVID-19Eastern Michigan University said it will soon begin testing wastewater on campus for signs of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.As part of its return-to-campus plan, the public research university is partnering with Michigan-based firm Aquasight to track the presence of the novel coronavirus in wastewater flowing from residence halls and apartment complexes on the school’s campus in Ypsilanti, west of Detroit.Tests have shown that wastewater contains infectious biomarkers that can signal the growth or reduction of the virus in a community or around a college campus, according to Eastern Michigan University President James Smith.“This monitoring process, while not diagnostic, may provide early detection of asymptomatic cases,” Smith said in a statement Friday. “The results of the tests will help us pinpoint any concerning trends and expand individual testing among specific populations as necessary.”Other schools, including the University of Arizona and Utah State University, are reportedly doing similar testing.Sep 21, 10:52 amHundreds of asylum seekers test positive for COVID-19 in GreeceMore than 200 asylum seekers who recently resettled at a new temporary camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, after the old one had burned down, have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Greek government spokesmen Stelios Petsas.During a regular press briefing Monday, Petsas said that all 7,064 individuals who were admitted to the new Kara Tepe camp, near the island’s capital Mytilene, had been tested for COVID-19 and that 243 of them were found to be infected.The average age of those who tested positive was 24, and most didn’t have any symptoms, according to Petsas.Another 160 people who had come into contact with the migrants, mostly police officers and administrative staff at the camp, were also tested for the virus but all had negative results, Petsas said.The new facility is not far from the remains of the Moria camp, where fires forced some 12,000 migrants to flee last week and seek shelter. Greek police believe the blazes were set deliberately by a small group of migrants angered by a lockdown imposed after a COVID-19 outbreak at the overcrowded camp. Six people, all Afghan nationals, have been arrested on suspicion of arson.Sep 21, 9:21 amCDC updates COVID-19 guidance to acknowledge airborne spreadThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidance on its website to say the novel coronavirus is most commonly transmitted “through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols, produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks, or breathes.”“These particles can be inhaled into the nose, mouth, airways, and lungs and cause infection,” the site now says. “This is thought to be the main way the virus spreads.”Previously, the CDC website said that COVID-19 most often spreads between people who are in close contact with one another — within about 6 feet — “through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.” The page was updated Friday.“There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond 6 feet (for example, during choir practice, in restaurants, or in fitness classes),” the site now says. “In general, indoor environments without good ventilation increase this risk.”The World Health Organization acknowledged in July that the novel coronavirus could spread through the air, after hundreds of scientists called for the global health arm of the United Nations to recognize the risk of airborne transmission.Sep 21, 7:42 amNew Zealand to lift restrictions except in its biggest cityNew Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Monday that all remaining coronavirus-related restrictions will be lifted across much of the country, except for the most populous city.The restrictions will end late Monday.Auckland, where a fresh outbreak now appears to be under control, will continue to have some regulations for at least another 16 days. The plan is to increase the cap on gatherings in the city from 10 to 100 on Wednesday and then remove the limit altogether two weeks later, according to Ardern.“Auckland needs more time,” Ardern told reporters Monday. “Whilst we have reasonable confidence we are on the right track, there is still a need in Auckland for that cautious approach.”A cluster of cases emerged in Auckland last month, ending New Zealand’s 102-day streak without any local transmission of the novel coronavirus. The outbreak prompted the government to impose a temporary lockdown in the region and reschedule national elections.Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, New Zealand’s Ministry of Health has identified 1,815 confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases as well as 25 coronavirus-related deaths. There are currently 62 active cases and three coronavirus-related hospitalizations in the country.There were no new cases confirmed in the nation of five million people on Monday.Sep 21, 6:55 amUK could see 50,000 new cases per day, chief medical officer warnsThe United Kingdom could see about 50,000 new COVID-19 cases a day by mid-October if the current rate of infection is not curbed, the government’s chief scientific adviser warned Monday.“At the moment we think the epidemic is doubling roughly every seven days,” Sir Patrick Vallance said in a televised address from London. “If, and that’s quite a big if, but if that continues unabated and this grows doubling every seven days… if that continued, you would end up with something like 50,000 cases in the middle of October per day.”That rate of infection would be expected to lead to 200-plus deaths per day by mid-November, according to Vallance, who noted that there are already measures in place to prevent the country from hitting those grim milestones.“That requires speed, it requires action, he said, “and it requires enough in order to be able to bring that down.”Vallance said the increase in COVID-19 infections has been among “every age group” and that the number of people in the country showing antibodies for the disease remains low, meaning the “vast majority of the population remain susceptible.”“As the disease spreads, as it spreads across age groups, we expect to see increasing hospitalizations,” he added. “And unfortunately, those increasing hospitalizations will lead to increasing deaths.”Sep 21, 6:13 amCalifornia’s death count surpasses 15,000California’s death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed 15,000, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The state’s tally of coronavirus-related fatalities, which currently stands at 15,016, is the fourth-highest in the country, after New York, New Jersey and Texas.California has reported the most COVID-19 infections of any U.S. state since the start of the pandemic, with more than 786,000 confirmed cases.Sep 21, 5:54 amEngland introduces hefty fines for breaking self-quarantinePeople in England who violate an order to self-quarantine will face fines of up to 10,000 British pounds, amid an alarming rise in COVID-19 infections.British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the new penalties mean people “are legally obliged” to self-isolate if they test positive for COVID-19 or are traced as a close contact to someone who did. The fines, which take effect next week, will start at 1,000 British pounds (approximately $1,300) but could increase to up to 10,000 pounds (about $13,000) for repeat offenders.The higher fines could be applied to “the most egregious breaches,” including those who prevent others from self-isolating, such as business owners who threaten employees with losing their jobs if they don’t come into work.Low-income workers who face a loss of earnings as a result of having to self-quarantine will be eligible for a one-time support payment of 500 British pounds (approximately $650).The new fines will come into force in England on Sept. 28. Officials are in talks with the devolved governments of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales about expanding them U.K.-wide.“The best way we can fight this virus is by everyone following the rules and self-isolating if they’re at risk of passing on coronavirus,” Johnson said while announcing the new rules over the weekend. “People who choose to ignore the rules will face significant fines. We need to do all we can to control the spread of this virus, to prevent the most vulnerable people from becoming infected, and to protect the NHS and save lives.”An official estimate shows that new COVID-19 infections and hospital admissions are doubling every seven to eight days in the United Kingdom. There were 3,899 new infections and 18 fatalities reported Sunday, bringing the country’s tally to 394,257 cases and 41,777 deaths, according to the latest figures from the U.K. governmentSep 21, 4:40 amUS death toll from COVID-19 inches closer to 200,000An additional 230 coronavirus-related fatalities were recorded in the United States on Sunday, as the country’s death toll inches closer to the 200,000 mark, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Sunday’s tally of COVID-19 deaths is well under the country’s record set on April 17, when there were 2,666 new fatalities in a 24-hour reporting period.There were also 38,978 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed across the nation on Sunday, down from a peak of 77,255 new cases reported on July 16.A total of 6,805,630 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 199,512 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then.Week-over-week comparisons show that the number of new cases and the number of new deaths recorded in the United States are both decreasing, according to an internal memo from the Federal Emergency Management Agency obtained by ABC News last week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Satellite radar interferometry for monitoring ice sheet motion: application to an Antarctic ice stream

first_imgSatellite radar interferometry (SRI) provides a sensitive means of monitoring the flow velocities and grounding-line positions of ice streams, which are indicators of response of the ice sheets to climatic change or internal instability. The detection limit is about 1.5 millimeters for vertical motions and about 4 millimeters for horizontal motions in the radar beam direction. The grounding line, detected by tidal motions where the ice goes afloat, can be mapped at a resolution of ∼0.5 kilometer. The SRI velocities and grounding line of the Rutford Ice Stream, Antarctica, agree fairly well with earlier ground-based data. The combined use of SRI and other satellite methods is expected to provide data that will enhance the understanding of ice stream mechanics and help make possible the prediction of ice sheet behavior.last_img read more

Greggs issues profit warning, LFLs down

first_imgGreggs has issued a profit warning after it revealed like-for-like sales (LFLs) were down 4.4% in the first four months of the year due to the poor weather.The BB75-leading bakery retailer said it had been particularly hit by adverse conditions in January and March.But it also said the picture was improving slightly, with the most recent two weeks indicating an underlying rate of LFL decline of around 1.5%, “reflecting in part the beginning of the weaker comparisons seen last year”.Total sales in the period grew by 3%, driven by its new shop opening programme and the continued development of wholesale and franchise sales.In a statement, the company, which recently saw the departure of chief executive Ken McMeikan, said: “We do not expect a significant improvement in the difficult underlying market conditions in the short term. The business is focused on continuing with our plans to invest in core sales performance whilst taking action to reduce costs.“Although we are only four months into the year, based on current own shop LFL performance we believe that profits for the year are likely to be slightly below the lower end of the range of market expectations.”It added: “We are continuing to experience lower footfall across much of the estate, although average transaction values have increased marginally. Our new shop openings remain focused on locations that have been less impacted by lower footfall, such as workplaces, travel and leisure destinations.”last_img read more

Dead & Company Clear Skies With Tour Debuts In Burgettstown [Photos/Videos]

first_imgDead & Company brought sunshine daydreams to a rainy sky in Burgettstown, PA on Thursday night at the KeyBank Pavilion. Both sets were laced with Grateful Dead classics that were superbly played through, exemplifying the tear the band has been on this tour. Eleven shows into summer, the band used the evening to introduce a few tour debuts to the mix.With the forecast set for rain and thunderstorms all night, the band kicked off the show with purpose. The set started off with a funky “Feel Like a Stranger” and “Easy Wind.” Guitarist John Mayer rocked it, with his blues guitar and vocal prowess matching the song perfectly. Pictures of Pigpen flashed on the screen towards the end of the song, with the crowd approving mightily. It was during this song that the torrential downpour hit. It didn’t last long, but left the place wet and muddy enough to add some extra fun to the lawn.“Cumberland Blues” had percussionist Mickey Hart playing what appeared to be shoes, clapping them together throughout the song. Keyboardist Jeff Chimenti shined on his solo, tickling the ivories for the song’s solo. “Throwin’ Stones,” played at a slower tempo, allowed a euphoric peak to be hit by Mayer. The jam was heavy on the energy and that brought the set to a great closing. It was also the song’s tour debut.As the sun was setting, the grooves ensued for a second-set opening “Jack Straw” that was monstrous. Mayer kept insisting that they delay the guitar chords, and when they finally sang “Jack Straw from Wichita…,” the place erupted. It was an amazing version.“Viola Lee Blues” kept the place dancing. Besides his playing, Mayer’s stage demeanor was entertaining. The way he was moving and shaking with his own groove was impressive. “He’s Gone” was wholesome to hear. “The Wheel” had a nice jam that turned reggae, with Mayer really belting out the outro lyrics before getting incredible dark.All of the sudden, a low rumble roll escaped Oteil Burbridge’s bridge, each note increasing in tone, culminating in the beginning of “The Other One.” The way he perfectly executed it was distinct to his own playing while still reminiscent of others who have done the same thing. “Drums” and “Space” were out there, and eventually landed in the conclusion of “The Other One.” The band finally played fan-favorite “Wharf Rat” on this tour, and it was soulful as ever. “Casey Jones” ended the set with a bang. The final tour debut of the evening was the encore-appropriate “Liberty.”Watch the first few songs from the first set below, courtesy of nugs.tv.Setlist: Dead & Company | Burgettstown, PA | KeyBank Pavilion | 6/15/17I: Feel Like A Stranger, Easy Wind, Cassidy, West LA Fadeaway, Row Jimmy, Cumberland Blues, Throwin’ StonesII: Jackstraw, Viola Lee Blues > He’s Gone > The Wheel > The Other One v.1 > Drums/Space > The Other One v.2, Wharf Rat > Casey JonesE: LibertyEnjoy the gallery below, courtesy of Daniel Ojeda.Dead & Company | Burgettstown, PA | KeyBank Pavilion | 6/15/17 Load remaining imageslast_img read more

A summer of achievement

first_imgNearly 900 children returned to schools in Boston and Cambridge this fall with a boost from the award-winning academic enrichment provided by the Summer Urban Program (SUP) at Harvard’s Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA).SUP, which is run by Harvard undergraduates and hosts 11 free summer camps in Boston and Cambridge, received the National Summer Learning Association’s 2011 Excellence in Summer Learning Award last month. The national organization supports summertime learning and rigorously assesses programs each year.Research has established that children lose academic skills during summer breaks, and low-income students are disproportionately at risk. Education experts point to summertime programs such as PBHA’s as a way to help bridge the gap.“PBHA’s SUP fits into a broader context. It’s helping Boston close achievement gaps by closing opportunity gaps in the summer,” said Christopher Smith, executive director of Boston After School & Beyond, a public-private partnership that supports, strengthens, and expands Boston’s after-school sector.Smith noted that the camps make a difference for the hundreds of students they serve and the often-underserved populations they benefit, including students from international backgrounds and those who speak English as a second language (ESL), who can struggle at school.The camps offer seven-week programs for children ages 6 to 12. Campers work on academics, including math and literacy skills, in the mornings and attend field trips, including visits to colleges, museums, historic sites, and the New England Aquarium, during the afternoons.PBHA’s summer learning data points to progress. According to SUP evaluations, 85 percent of ESL campers have improved scores after attending the camps. Nearly 80 percent of parents reported improvements in their children’s reading, writing, and math skills over the summer. Ninety-eight percent of junior counselors (children can spend years in a program, first as campers and later as paid junior counselors) plan to attend college.The camps are led by about 130 college students. Some are Harvard undergraduates and others are local students, most of whom participated in the program as campers and stayed on to teach or help run the camps. PBHA program directors say creating a sense of community at each camp and encouraging youngsters to be agents of change in their communities are important parts of SUP. This is why SUP offers opportunities for campers to come back as junior counselors, senior counselors, and even program directors (where they also earn a summer stipend). Harvard students and local college students work together to build that strong sense of community. “Students regularly worked 12- to 16-hour days during the program to make sure the next day’s session was as enriching and fun as possible. … The level of collaboration among students in planning the program is remarkable,” said Sarah Pitcock, senior director of program quality at the National Summer Learning Association.The program was also lauded for collaborating with other programs and being part of the communities they serve.“PBHA is building communities in three levels — among the students they serve, among their staff, and at the city level, with us and other partners. They serve as a satellite summer school for Boston,” said Smith.As for the students who plan and run the camps, being recognized among the nation’s top summer learning programs is an honor, but they say the recognition goes to all involved.“This award is such a big honor, but we couldn’t do what we do without the community organizations, parents, and children we work so closely with over the summer,” said SUP program director Diana Bartenstein ’12. “There’s a lot of energy in the program, and all involved are really committed to it, and that makes the difference.”SUP began in 1980 and runs day camps in the following neighborhoods. It partners with local schools and organizations to host the programs:Dorchester: the Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment at the Marshall Elementary School and the Franklin I-O Summer Program at Frederick Pilot Middle SchoolChinatown: the Chinatown Adventure at the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent AssociationCambridge: the Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program at the Benjamin Banneker Charter School, Fletcher-Maynard Academy, and King Open SchoolSouth End: Keylatch Summer Program at Blackstone Elementary SchoolMission Hill: the Mission Hill Summer Program at Wentworth Institute of TechnologyJamaica Plain: the Native American Youth Enrichment Program at the Curley K-8 SchoolRoxbury: the Roxbury Youth Initiative at Hennigan Elementary SchoolSouth Boston: the South Boston Outreach Summer at Condon Elementary SchoolIn addition to the camps, the program provides ESL training for immigrant and refugee teens. PBHA’s Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment and Refugee Youth Summer Enrichment have been recognized by the Boston Public Schools as alternatives to summer school. Its Native American Youth Enrichment Program is the only summer camp specifically for urban Native American youth in Massachusetts.SUP receives support from a number of Harvard groups, including the President’s Office, Harvard Public Affairs & Communications, the Harvard Achievement Support Initiative, the Office of Career Services, and the Institute of Politics. The program is also supported by many community partners and citywide by the Boston Public Schools, the Cambridge Public Schools, the Boston Youth Fund, Action for Boston Community Development, the Boston Center for Youth and Families, and the Cambridge Mayor’s Youth Fund.Each year, the National Summer Learning Association recognizes summer programs that demonstrate excellence in accelerating academic achievement and promoting healthy development for young people. The PBHA program was the only entirely college student-run program among the five recognized this year.last_img read more

Isms stalk the land, but David Brooks hasn’t lost hope

first_imgIn the late 1980s David Brooks was reporting from Europe for The Wall Street Journal as a wave of reform swept the world. Across five years he would cover the fall of Berlin Wall, the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Maastricht Treaty, Nelson Mandela’s release from prison, the end of apartheid, and the Oslo peace process.It was “all good news,” Brooks said, except for the one story he mostly ignored: Civil war in Yugoslavia.“In retrospect, that was the most important thing that happened while I was there because that led to what we’ve seen ever since, and that’s tribalism,” Brooks, now a columnist for The New York Times, told a Harvard audience on Wednesday.The rise of tribalism in the U.S. was among Brooks’ topics during a talk at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. American tribalism and the appeal of President Trump, he said, owe largely to a shift from a community ethos to one of rugged and rebellious individualism.There are pros and cons to both, Brooks said. From 1932 to 1964, community was central to a sense of self and connectedness, and citizens put faith in big organizations — government, unions, corporations — to solve big problems.But if trust and “humility” were easier to find back then, Brooks said, so were rampant racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism, as well as more emotional distance in families, particularly between fathers and their children, and deeper conformity.The 1960s, Brooks said, produced a turn from “we are in this together” to a “free to be myself” sense of liberation that charged a range of social movements, including for expanded Civil Rights. But now, decades later, the country is “suffering a lot of the effects of individualism,” he said. Brooks pointed specifically to three social chasms: loneliness and isolation; a distrust of institutions; and a crisis of purpose.“What happens when you leave people naked and alone?” Brooks said. “Well, they do what anybody does with our revolutionary history — they revert to tribe.”,The Trump campaign understood that partisan conflict had shifted away from the size of government to a debate about the embrace or rejection of globalization. And he pounced. Deft with political theater, the future president “was good at exposing the holes of the old order … at picking every wound we have and sticking a red hot poker into it.”Brooks sees a moderating influence in organizations focused on missions such as civic education, rebuilding community, social mobility, and a better understanding of what our American purpose is “around the world.” The country needs to develop a better understanding of “why living in a democratic society is a better way of life,” he added. Perhaps most important, Brooks said, is that we look outward from our tribes in a spirit of “I commit to you.”Commitments, whether to a person or a profession, a community or a set of ideas, give us our identity, sense of purpose, higher definition of freedom, and moral character, Brooks said.Commitment to nation is the biggest challenge facing the country, he said, but it’s not insurmountable. The journalist sees hope in strong communities “rallying to action.”“People figure stuff out,” he said. “And the writers who say, ‘It’s the end of,’ ‘It’s the decline of’ — people like us, we are always wrong.”last_img read more

New baby

first_imgBy Stephanie SchupskaUniversity ofGeorgiaSince her unusual start in a Petri dish, KC has matured into a very normal cow. And on the last day of 2005, she routinely gave birth to Moonshine, her second calf.“KC has done just like every other cow out there and produced a calf within 12 to 13 months of her last calf,” said Steve Stice, the University of Georgia scientist who directed the team of scientists who cloned KC. “Moonshine and Sunshine (KC’s firstborn) were both normal pregnancies and were delivered without assistance, which is important to commercial cow-calf operations that will be using cloning to improve the quality, diseases resistance and productivity of their herds.”KC is different from other cloned cows because she is the first to be cloned from kidney cells taken from a frozen side of beef. The others have been formed from living animals, Stice said.“Right now there are probably a lot of cloned cows out there having calves,” he said, “which is a good thing because it proves cloned cows do have normal offspring.”The public is still wary of cloned cows. Around the time Moonshine’s sister, Sunshine, was born in December 2004, polls indicated that nearly 60 percent of U.S. consumers opposed cloning animals, including livestock.Stice hopes that will eventually change.“The Food and Drug Administration has still not given their approval on cloned animals entering the food chain,” he said. “They have the data they need to give the clearance but other issues may be slowing this down. Once the FDA acts, I think it will mark the beginning of wider acceptance of cloned animals.”Stice is a Georgia Research Alliance eminent scholar and one of the world’s top cloning experts. He conducted the cloning research with the biotechnology firm ProLinia Inc., which was later bought by ViaGen Inc.Since cattle were first domesticated, farmers have been trying to improve their herds through selective breeding. Cloning can speed up the process by allowing scientists to make exact copies of the desired animals and their traits.According to UGA agricultural specialist Joseph Durham, Moonshine came into the world weighing 70 pounds. And although KC did all the work, various animal and dairy science faculty members got to name the new calf. “We did a survey of the animal and dairy science department,” Stice said, “and Moonshine came up on several suggestions.” They decided to move away from the disco theme that started when Sunshine was named after the rhythm and blues group, KC and the Sunshine Band. But Stice recalls that Boogie Shoes, a hit song from the band, was one of the names suggested.(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Keir Starmer elected new UK Labour leader replacing Corbyn

first_imgHe immediately addressed the issue of anti-Semitism that Corbyn was accused of failing to tackle, which tarnished the party’s reputation and caused Jewish members to leave in droves.”Anti-Semitism has been a stain on our party. I have seen the grief that it’s brought to so many Jewish communities,” Starmer said.”On behalf of the Labour Party, I am sorry. “And I will tear out this poison by its roots and judge success by the return of Jewish members and those who felt that they could no longer support us.”Starmer, who won a resounding 56.2 percent of the vote of Labour members, acknowledged the party had “a mountain to climb”, after four straight general election defeats — two under Corbyn.But he vowed: “We will climb it.”He added: “I will lead this great party into a new era, with confidence and with hope.”So that when the time comes, we can serve our country again in government.”Topics : Starmer, who was Labour’s Brexit spokesman, called his election “the honour and privilege” of his life and vowed to “engage constructively” with Johnson’s Conservative government.Johnson immediately offered his congratulations and the pair spoke, with Starmer accepting an invitation to a government briefing on COVID-19 next week.”Keir offered to work constructively with the government on how best to respond to the coronavirus outbreak,” his spokesman said.Starmer himself vowed to reunite Labour, after deep rifts between supporters of socialist Corbyn’s hard-left ideals and centrists, and wrangling over its Brexit strategy. Pro-European centrist Keir Starmer was on Saturday unveiled as new Labour party leader, heralding a shift in Britain’s main opposition party after a crushing election defeat under veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn and years of ideological infighting. The 57-year-old former chief state prosecutor defeated Corbyn loyalist Rebecca Long-Bailey and backbencher Lisa Nandy in a lengthy campaign sparked by Corbyn’s resignation after December’s loss at the polls to Boris Johnson’s Conservatives.Angela Rayner becomes the new deputy leader, Labour announced on Twitter, after it was forced to cancel a special conference because of the coronavirus outbreak.last_img read more

Women with multiple partners more likely to experience stress and depression

first_imgChild & Family blog.com May 2016Family First Comment:  “Mothers with children conceived by multiple partners were more likely to be depressed both around the birth of the child and two years later…“Depression around the birth of the child correlated with the degree of involvement of the biological father.Women with children by multiple partners are more likely to experience stress and depression compared with mothers whose children share the same father.Paula Fomby at the University of Michigan looked at 3,366 families included in the Fragile Families Child and Wellbeing Study. The families included children who were born between 1998 and 2000 in a number of US cities.Fomby compared mothers who went on to have another child by a new partner within the next three years with mothers who had another child with the same partner or who had no further children.Mothers with multiple partners were likely to receive less social support and less child support from the biological father. Children were likely to have less contact with their biological fathers, and the relationship between the mother and the biological fathers was likely to be poorer.Mothers with children conceived by multiple partners were more likely to be depressed both around the birth of the child and two years later. A mother of a three-year-old with another child by a different partner was 43% more likely to have had a major depressive episode in the past year compared to women who had no further children.Fomby found that depression around the birth of the child correlated with the degree of involvement of the biological father. Two years later, the main correlation was with what Fomby calls “boundary ambiguity” in the family, such as the presence of the new partner’s earlier children in the household and family activities involving both biological and step-father at the same time.READ MORE: https://childandfamilyblog.com/women-multiple-partners/last_img read more

Chelsea in charge of Pedro pursuit

first_imgChelsea are in pole position to sign Pedro after Manchester United’s interest in the Barcelona winger cooled. Press Association Pedro is reportedly available for a fee of £22million, but senior figures at Old Trafford say doubts in the player’s mind over the move led United boss Louis van Gaal to end the pursuit. The Spain forward would add to Jose Mourinho’s attacking options and his potential arrival could lead to a move away from Stamford Bridge for Juan Cuadrado. Cuadrado, a January arrival from Fiorentina, has struggled to impose himself on the Blues and has been linked with a return to Italy. Chelsea have one point from their opening two games of the season and are also looking to strengthen in defence. John Stones has been the subject of a reported three failed bids, with Everton determined to hold on to the England centre back. The Blues play at West Brom on Sunday and at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday week prior to the closure of the transfer window on Tuesday, September 1, by when Mourinho will hope to have bolstered his options in attack and defence. center_img Premier League champions Chelsea, reeling from their worst start to a season in 17 years, are understood to be interested in the Spanish forward.

FDA Issues Emergency Approval of COVID-19 Test for “Pooled” Use

first_imgThe Food and Drug Administration over the weekend gave emergency approval to a new approach to COVID-19 testing that combines test samples in batches rather than running them one by one, thereby speeding up the process.The FDA announced on Saturday that it had reissued an emergency use authorization to Quest Diagnostics to use its coronavirus test with pooled samples.It is the first test to be authorized for use in that way.With pooling, labs would combine parts of samples from several people and test them together.A negative result would clear everyone in the batch.On the other hand, a positive result would require each sample to be individually retested.Pooling works best with lab-run tests, which take hours, not the quicker individual tests that are used in clinics or doctor’s offices.Today, the FDA issued the first Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for sample pooling in a #COVID19 diagnostic test. https://t.co/YtHeydxH1N pic.twitter.com/WF7Im9dIXP— U.S. FDA (@US_FDA) July 18, 2020 The potential benefits of sample pooling include stretching lab supplies further, as well as reducing costs and expanding testing to millions more Americans who may unknowingly be spreading the virus.Health officials continue to say they believe that infected, asymptomatic people are largely responsible for the rising number of cases throughout the country.“It’s a really good tool. It can be used in any of a number of circumstances, including at the community level or even in schools,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said last month at a Senate hearing.Pooling does not save time or resources when used in a COVID-19 hot spot, such as a nursing home. That is because the logistical and financial benefits of pooling only show when a small number of pools test positive.Experts recommend the technique be used when fewer than 10 percent of people are expected to test positive for the virus.last_img read more

Director of Sport hands over gear to Victoria Community

first_imgDIRECTOR of Sport, Christopher Jones,last Tuesday made a stop at the Victoria Community Centre where he handed over a number of Sports equipment and gear to members of the community.In making the presentation,the head of the National Sports Commission declared that it was a small contribution and promised more in the future.“I want to assure you, here (and)now, that this here is what I consider very minor, a very minute donation…so you can rest assured that the National Sports Commission (NSC) and by extension the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture will make further contributions to the development of your Village through the year.I understand that there is a proposal to enhance your ground to the tune of $3.5m GY…I want to say this now, that once that proposal is submitted to me,that would be on the priority list for 2017”, Jones promised to loud cheers from the villagers gathered.“Our aim at the NSC is to do everything possible to ensure that every village throughout the length and breadth of this country, the young people have a recreational space that they can go run, frolic, learn a particular sport and of course have an enclosed environment that is safe;so we are working on ensuring that these facilities are available in every community and village. Be assured that support will always be forthcoming from the NSC in the development of your community,” the Director reminded.Junior Minister within the Ministry of Health, Dr. Karen Cummings,who hails from that village thanked the Director for the kind gesture and urged the members to “care the equipment and make good use so that Victoria can move from one level to the next…think big,the sky is the limit.”Long-standing Club official of the Community’s pride – Victoria Kings FC – Calvin Marks introduced the Director and told the gathering that it was a historic moment for the village as it is the first time any Government official came to present any sport equipment to the village and that he was thankful.Marks also mentioned the exploits of the Victoria Kings FC and reminded that without the support of the Community there would be no Victoria Kings.The equipment received were for: Cricket, Lawn Tennis, Basketball, Football, Volleyball and Chess.

Justyn Knight, arguably the greatest SU runner of all time, is looking for his first individual national championship

first_img Published on November 15, 2017 at 9:48 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] In 2016, Knight missed qualifying for the Olympics by 0.1 seconds, his mother Jennifer said. That November, Tiernan beat Knight at the national championship. Come 2017, he qualified for the World Championships in the 5,000-meter. When it turned to race time, a familiar face lurked in the finals. It was Tiernan.With five laps to go, Tiernan moved into the lead, quickening the pace by two seconds. But Knight didn’t budge. He stayed with the pack, gradually chasing down the man that beat him a year earlier.Tiernan couldn’t maintain his pace, and Knight only sped up, inching closer and closer. Knight finished in ninth place in his first appearance on the world stage. Tiernan took 11th.“If he doesn’t win,” former SU runner Martin Hehir said, “he’s just going to come back with a vengeance.Knight’s talent matches his flare to make him one of the most well-known runners in the world. As one of the nation’s most dominant athletes, he’s commanded attention from everyone, including his teammates. They want to run with him.Everyone’s always wanted to run with him.When the St. Michael Catholic (Ontario, Canada) High School runner was just beginning to rise to local stardom, his head coach, Frank Bergin, found him waiting at the track after practice. Everyone else was gone, and Bergin was on his way out, but Knight was waiting for two kids from the nearby elementary school, who couldn’t have been older than 11, Bergin said. The two had seen Knight run and asked him to run a lap with them after school. So Knight waited and ran with them.“I remember just going ‘wow.’” Bergin said. “That’s Justyn.”Once Knight arrived on Syracuse’s campus two years later, he made an immediate impact, running in the national championship his true freshman season.By his sophomore season in 2015, Knight emerged as one of the best runners in the country. Hehir had always been the runner that teammates modeled themselves after. Soon, even for Hehir, that runner became Knight.Andy Mendes | Digital Design EditorOne of the reasons that Hehir excelled so much as a senior, Smith said, was because Knight took the pressure off Hehir and let him run freely.“Justin’s transformed the program and he’s taken us to a place where we couldn’t have been without him,” Hehir said. “That’s meant a lot for the program and for the future of the program.”The pair, along with emerging star Colin Bennie, led Syracuse to its first national championship in 64 years. When Bennie arrived at campus, like many, he copied Hehir’s model. But in 2015, he mimicked Knight.“Justyn being the guy to keep with,” Bennie’s mother Lisa said, “is the best training situation Colin could be in.”The entire time Knight trained for worlds, he checked on his teammate’s summer training, Jennifer said. In between workouts this summer in Vaughan, Ontario, Knight’s phone would be littered with messages from younger runners asking how his training was going, but also asking questions about their own training and how to prepare for the fall.Syracuse head coach Chris Fox traveled to London this summer for Knight’s race. As soon as it was over, Knight found his coach.“‘Let’s get ready for cross-country,’” he said to Fox.Throughout this season, Knight has worked to ensure his teammates are ready to battle at NCAAs. He sets the tones in workouts, checks in on how his teammates train and recover and takes on his own coaching responsibilities as the team’s leader. All his preparations have lined up for this Saturday, when Knight has one final attempt at a cross-country crown. “I think it’s a pretty fitting final chapter for him to put his mark on,” Hehir said. “The fact that he hasn’t won a title yet chomps this up to make it even sweeter. It could be a storybook ending.”Knight loves the pressure and the spotlight, but he’s had to adjust to it. Being the favorite is something he’s struggled with in the past. After he rose to prominence in 2015, the lights shined brighter and the microphones in his face multiplied. He felt overwhelmed. But he’s learned to embrace it and use the added attention to take the pressure off of his team.No matter the finish, Saturday’s race will bring an end to the greatest cross-country career a Syracuse runner has ever had.“I’m 30 years old and I don’t think that I will ever have another Justyn in my coaching career,” Smith said. “He is a once in a lifetime talent.”And on Saturday afternoon, he can capture the one thing that’s eluded him. Comments For two years, across three seasons, Justyn Knight couldn’t beat Oregon’s Edward Cheserek. No one could. Cheserek, or “the King” as he was called, finished his college career as a 17-time national champion in 21 possible events. But, at the cross-country national championship last year, Knight finished ahead of him.Then he ran into another problem: Villanova’s Patrick Tiernan. Knight prefers a sit-and-kick type race, where the runners don’t burn themselves out during the race, but then sprint ahead at the end. Tiernan set the pace that day, and made sure he didn’t let Knight kick. Instead, he burned the last mile, forcing Knight to chase, preventing a strong kick.“Sometimes you have your day,” Syracuse assistant coach Adam Smith said, “and that day was Tiernan’s day.”Cheserek and Tiernan were both experienced runners in their last year of eligibility. Knight was one of the favorites, but not the favorite. In all cross-country disciplines, outdoor and indoor track, Knight has had his share of chances to claim an individual national title, but hasn’t won one yet.Knight is the best runner in Syracuse history, with two top-five finishes in three years at the national championship. When Knight began his college career, Syracuse was a middle-of-the-pack finisher at nationals, unable to get over the hump. Knight turned the team into a perennial top-three team and national champion in 2015. He has carried the program on his back while making his teammates better. But he has never captured an individual cross-country championship. On Saturday, he has one final opportunity to do it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I don’t go into any race racing for second,” Knight said.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

David Pastrnak injury update: Bruins winger expected to return this week

first_img“I suspect if he doesn’t play tomorrow, Thursday will be a real good day.”Pastrnak last suited up Feb. 10 against Colorado, where he was held scoreless over 20:42 of ice time. Later that night, he fell while walking out of a sponsorship dinner and injured his left thumb. The club announced two days later that his injury would require surgery. He has missed the team’s last 16 games. David Pastrnak appears to be returning to the Bruins lineup this week, according to head coach Bruce Cassidy.”He’s a good player, we miss him,” said Cassidy, stating the obvious following the team’s practice Monday. “Practice today felt great, so he’s traveling with us, obviously. Could play tomorrow. … I’m not saying he will, but he’ll make that decision in conjunction with the medical staff, maybe as early as tomorrow after morning skate. So I would assume he’d be a game-time decision tomorrow. Pastrnak and several of his teammates attended a sponsorship dinner on Sunday night. At about 11:30, while walking to his transportation, Pastrnak fell and injured his left thumb.Team will know better in two weeks, but Pastrnak is expected to return and play this season.— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) February 12, 2019Pastrnak was having a career year prior to the injury. In 56 games, the right wing netted 31 goals and 35 assists with a career-high 29 points on the power play. How he will play when he returns is anyone’s guess since he is a right-handed shot, meaning his left hand is his top and controlling hand.One thing is certain: Pastrnak will be reunited on the top line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. The line was dominant before Pastrnak’s injury, and rejoining the trio is a “comfort level” for Pastrnak, noted Cassidy.The Bruins are embarking on a four-game road trip in which the 2014 first-round pick could return Tuesday against the Islanders or Thursday in New Jersey. With 10 games remaining, Boston sits four points ahead of Toronto in the battle for home-ice advantage in their expected first-round Atlantic Division matchup.last_img read more

Texas A&M hires Buzz Williams as basketball coach

first_imgMy family & I are overwhelmed with thankfulness 🙏🏿 and honored to return home 🏡 to Texas A&M ➕ @aggieMBK! 🏀We are excited about the future, and can’t wait to 👀 the @12thman again tomorrow.#GigEm👍🏼— Buzz Williams (@TeamCoachBuzz) April 3, 2019Williams, who spent the last five seasons at Virginia Tech, will take over a Texas A&M program that went 14-18 this past season, missed out on the NCAA Tournament and fired Billy Kennedy on March 15.According to the Houston Chronicle, Texas A&M is expected to pay Williams at $3.5 million per year — a nice bump from Williams’ $3 million salary at Virginia Tech and Kennedy’s $2.45 million in 2018-19.Williams, 46, is fresh off leading Virginia Tech to a 23-7 regular season and an appearance in the Sweet 16 where the Hokies fell to Duke. He took the Hokies to the tournament in each of the last three seasons. “Thanks to our talented student-athletes, Coach Williams and his staff, Virginia Tech is now one of the most attractive jobs in the nation’s top basketball conference, the ACC,” Babcock continued. “I’m extremely confident that we’ll be able to identify and hire a new head coach who can further build on the success our men’s basketball program has achieved in recent years. Until we have our new head coach in place, we will have no further comment on our search process.” Prior to his stint with Virginia Tech, Williams led Marquette to five NCAA Tournament appearances in six seasons, including one Elite Eight trip and two other Sweet 16 berths. He was an assistant coach at Texas A&M from 2004-06 under Billy Gillispie.Kennedy tallied a 151-116 record during his time at Texas A&M. He reached two NCAA Tournaments and advanced to the Sweet 16 in both 2015-16 and 2017-18.

Game Day Preview: Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers

first_imgDEFENDING J. J. WATT—Several Steelers offensive linemen try to keep J. J. Watt away from the quarterback. (Courier Photo by Julio Torres)The Steelers improved to 4-3 last week and now face one of the best teams and best quarterbacks in the NFL when Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts visit on Sunday afternoon.The Colts have been on a roll after losing their first two games to open the season and are favored by three points over the Steelers, at Heinz Field. That’s how far the Steelers have fallen, they are underdogs at home.The black and gold really want to get that 5th win to keep them alive in the playoff chase at the midway point. Do they have what it takes?Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:•    The best defense is a ball control offense. The Colts have a very potent offense and with Andrew Luck leading them, they are easily capable of putting up 30 points.  The Steelers must control the clock with their offense to keep the Colts off the field. That means LeVeon Bell and LaGarret Blount must get several carries and several yards to go with them.2. The defense must pressure luck and actually get into the backfield. If not, it will be a LONG day for the secondary.3. Special team sare going to need to make a big play. Antonio Brown may need to return a punt for a TD or the kicking team needs to force a turnover. Either way, special teams will be a key to victory.4. In a game against a quality opponent like the Colts, the penalties must be at a minimum. The black and gold cannot afford to provide the Colts with any extra yards.Here are a Few Things to Watch:•    Martavis Bryant-He made his NFL debut last week and he immediately made an impact by stretching the field and scoring a TD. How will he be used this week.2.  Trick Plays-Will the Steelers break one out as they did against the Texans with the Brown to Moore TD pass?3. Cortez Allen-He’s lost his starting job but with the Colts air attack he’ll need to play multiple downs and he will need to step up and make a play.4. Lawrence Timmons-He’s still the best player on the defensive side of the ball and I look for him to get close to 10 tackles and lead the young guys along with it.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

However, in 2014 they had 19 at this stage and still failed to win the title, finishing fourth.Arsenal’s training ground is next to Watford’s in the county of Hertfordshire, just north of London. Indeed, Watford’s HQ was formerly used by the Gunners, but that is where the similarities stop.Newly promoted Watford have had a reasonable start to life back in the Premier League, winning two games, at home to Swansea and at Newcastle, taking them to 12th place.last_img read more

Scorpions seek ‘winning start’

first_imgA winning start. That is the objective that is being echoed by Jamaica Scorpions coach Junior Bennett, as the team heads into battle today with defending champions and co-hosts, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the feature game of the opening round of the WICB NAGICO Super50 Tournament at Queen’s Park Oval.One of four matches on the day, the day/night Group A encounter, which can be seen on television network ESPN Caribbean, is slated to bowl off at 12:30 p.m. Jamaica time.”We will be looking (for) a positive start, a winning start, as we don’t want to play catch-up cricket,” said Bennett.”They are at home and we expect their fans to be heavily behind them. But we are not daunted.”We have prepared well and our confidence level is good.”Beaten at the semi-final stage last year, the Scorpions will enter the encounter under the supervision of first-time captain, John Campbell.The 22-year-old opener, a former West Indies Under-19 vice-captain, will be participating in his third Super50 and will be hoping to rise to the occasion, particularly as it relates to the batting unit.The batting is fairly young with former captain and veteran, Tamar Lambert, the most experienced.It also includes Antiguan-born Devon Thomas, the in-form AndrÈ McCarthy, Shacaya Thomas, Guyanese-born opener Trevon Griffith and the exciting Brandon King.West Indies batsman Jermaine Blackwood is set to join the team after the first three of six group fixtures.The Scorpions’ bowling, in the meanwhile – in the absence of Jerome Taylor, who is also scheduled to join the team for the latter stages – will be led by left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell and ever-reliable left-arm spinner, Nikita Miller.”It’s a balanced unit, a little bit of inexperience, but a raw-talented one with a lot of potential,” stated Bennett.The Red Force, in the meanwhile, are bereft of their most established players like Jamaica, due to either West Indies or worldwide Twenty20 leagues.TOPPLAYERSTheir most experienced players will be Guyanese-born batsman Narsingh Deonarine, fast bowling all-rounder Rayad Emrit, emerging batsman Jason Mohammed and leg-spinner Imran Khan.The other matchup in Group A will see 2014 winners Barbados Pride against ICC Americas at the Sir Frank Worrell Cricket Ground.Meanwhile, in Group B, which will be contested in St Kitts and Nevis, home of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes, the hosts will face Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners at Warner Park, while at St Paul’s, last year’s runners-up Guyana Jaguars will meet Windward Islands Volcanoes.TEAMS:Jamaica Scorpions:- John Campbell (captain), Trevon Griffith, Jermaine Harrison, Andre McCarthy, Jermaine Blackwood, Tamar Lambert, Brandon King, Devon Thomas, Nikita Miller, Damion Jacobs, Aldaine Thomas, Marquino Mindley, Sheldon Cotterell, Jerome Taylor.

Good students easier to coach – St Jago Manning Cup coach Laing underscores value of academics

first_imgGlen Laing, football coach at St Jago High School, says good student-athletes are easier to coach. Laing, who guided St Jago to the Super Cup and Walker Cup semi-finals last season, is challenging his colleagues to emphasise academics with their charges. Speaking days before St Jago started their 2016 campaign with a 3-0 away win over Campion College, Laing lamented the current state of Jamaican football. “What’s happening in Jamaican football is just a travesty right now,” he said. “If we have more coaches who are serious about the youngsters not only playing, but learning, because if they are learning in the schools, it’s easier to coach them.” Continuing on the education theme, he explained: “So we are emphasising on them learning, so when they come to the football, it’s easier for them to understand the tactical play that we want them to put out on the field.” In a reflection of the recent success of Germany at the World Cup and the Olympics, he concluded: “You’re just hoping that our guys can learn good in the schools, so when we have them on the field and show them some of those plays, it will just be automatic.” St Jago will be back in action against Calabar High School tomorrow. The match will be played at the Spanish Town Prison Oval, Spanish Town, with kick off set for 3.30 p.m.last_img read more

Dominant Spain held 1-1 in Italy

first_imgTURIN, Italy (AP):Former world champions Italy and Spain played to 1-1 yesterday, giving a chance for unheralded Albania to take the lead in their Europe qualifying group.Elsewhere, Mario Mandzukic bagged a hat-trick as Croatia beat up Kosovo 6-0, while Wales conceded the lead twice away in Austria in a draw.GROUP GSpain lost to Italy in the round of 16 at the European Championship, and were set for a measure of revenge in Turin yesterday.Spain’s Vitolo scored in the 55th minute following a rare mistake from veteran Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.But Daniele De Rossi converted a penalty with eight minutes remaining after Eder was tripped by Sergio Ramos, and preserved his team’s formidable home record. Italy has won 43 World Cup qualifiers, drawing the other seven.Spain and Italy are level on points in Group G after winning their opening qualifiers. Only the top team qualifies for the 2018 World Cup in Russia automatically.Albania moved to the top after winning in Lichtenstein 2-0 to maintain its perfect start to its qualifying campaign.GROUP IMandzukic proved unstoppable, ruthlessly exploiting Kosovo’s inexperience and scoring his three in the first 35 minutes.After Kosovo earned a credible draw at Finland last month, this was its first competitive home game but played in Albania’s northern city of Shkodra, as Kosovo has no stadium certified by UEFA.Croatia were without star midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric but had another star available: Mandzukic needed just six minutes to open the scoring off a pass from Andrej Kramaric.Mandzukic met Ivan Perisic’s cross to head home and double the lead, and completed his hat trick with another header 10 minutes before the interval, this time using a cross from Sime Vrsaljko, for his 27th goal in 71 internationals.Iceland rallied in the final minutes to earn their first victory in qualifying, 3-2 over Finland.GROUP DMarko Arnautovic twice came to Austria’s rescue to draw 2-2 with Wales in the group where Wales, Serbia, Austria, and Ireland are separated only on goal difference at the top.Wales took the lead with a slick goal in the 22nd minute, with Joe Allen volleying into the net. It was cancelled out inside six minutes by Stoke teammate Arnautovic’s downward header.last_img read more

Playing with the breeze in the first half Whitestrand went close from a corner on ten minutes when Benny Callaghan shot just wide. Paul Lynch also went close from another corner with Chris Toner clearing off the line. Lagan’s best chance of the game came when Austin Marron received a Kevin Kelly cross but after creating space he shot over. With the aid of the breeze in the second half Lagan would have expected to create some chances. But the Strand defence, well led by Paddy Kelly in goal and Benny Callaghan at centre half, were resolute. Strand in fact went closest to scoring when Jason Quinn had to rush off his line to beat Eddie Blake to a through ball. Lagan had a half chance when Gerard Hilley glanced a near post corner into Paddy Kelly’s arms. As Lagan frustration grew Conal Mc Gonagle almost won it for them when his effort from thirty five yards just whistled wide. Despite a couple of goalmouth scrambles in the final minutes Lagan didn’t get the breakthrough and Strand got the point they deserved. Best for Lagan were Conal Mc Gonagle and Chris Toner. For Strand Benny Callaghan and Paul Lynch were best. Referee: Martin Mc Anenny.

As the half progressed the home side came more into the game but were finding it difficult to create any clear cut chances. Drumoghill almost opened the scoring on 35 minutes when, after a good run from Robert Moore, he saw his chip just clear the bar. In the 2nd half Glenea started well and took the lead on 55 minutes when Sean Coll’s through ball found Michael Barry and he slotted the ball home off the far post. Glenea pushed hard to double their lead and went close with efforts from Darren Mc Geever and Gavin Mc Glanaghey. Drumoghill were awarded a penalty on 62 minutes, but Joe Coll saved Robert Moore’s effort. However from the resultant corner Marcus Oliver was on hand to drill the home ball. The loss of the goal seemed to spur on the home side and they began to create chances with the away keeper forced to make a number of good saves. Drumoghill’s best effort came from Terence Shields but his attempted lob was well saved by Joe Coll. In extra-time it was the home side that dominated but were unable to take advantage of the chances that came their way and it was Drumoghill that were successful with the spot kicks. Best for Glenea were Dean Gallagher, Padraig McGee and Kevin Mulhern, while Robert Moore was best for Drumoghill. Referee: Kevin Logue.Rathmullan Celtic 1 Clonmany Shamrocks 3Inishowen kingpins Clonmany Shamrocks advanced to the last four of the Ulster Cup after three strikes in the second half from their industrious forward line was enough to secure the quarter final win over Rathmullan Celtic who got a consolation gal from Ryan Mc Cullagh.The opening half saw very few chances created with both sides coming to terms with the blustery conditions in what was a stalemate with both defences coping with the few attacks created. The Seasiders were dealt a blow at half time with their in-form sharp shooter and manager Dara Patton forced off through a knee injury. A Mc Loughlin free kick from 30 yards on 57 minutes, which Hoops keeper Mark Gallagher could only parry, ended with Philip Devlin tapping in from close range. This lead spurred on the visitors and they duly doubled their advantage on 64 minutes after Raymond McDaid played a neat one-two with Marty Doherty to open up the Hoops defence allowing McDaid to round the keeper and finish off the classy forward play in style. The Hoops upped their tempo with Ryan Connolly striking low from 20 yards out on 73 minutes but Clonmany’s shot stopper Paddy Harkin was on hand to deny the striker with a smart save. The contest was over on 80 minutes after Mc Loughlin crossed for Alan Friel to calmly finish from inside the area. Hoops scored a consolation goal on 88 minutes with Shea Coyle smartly flicking on an Edwards’ pass to Ryan Mc Cullagh who finishing low to the left post of the outstretched Harkin in goals. Referee: Paddy MartinErne Wanderers 1 Gweedore Celtic 0Saturday League side Erne Wanderers booked their place in the Ulster Junior Cup semi-final with a victory over Premier Division side Gweedore Celtic. Most neutrals would have expected to see the Gaeltacht side’s name in the semi-final draw but Alan Dorrian’s side are capable opponents for most sides on their day and that added to their mastery of the Lakeside surface made Gweedore’s task more onerous than many thought. Barry Mulligan got the all important goal in the second half after the sides remained deadlocked at the interval. Gweedore will now focus on gaining as many League points as they can as the season enters it’s latter stages while Erne have an unfamiliar prestigious match to look forward to as well as their remaining League fixtures.Ulster Junior Shield Moville Celtic 3 Deele Harps 1Deele Harps came up just short as they attempted to make it an All Donegal Junior League Ulster Junior Shield Final. With Convoy Arsenal in the process of defeating Bonagee United at Orchard Park Deele were visiting Inishowen outfit Moville Celtic Reserves in the other semi-final. The Lifford based side fell behind early on and despite getting back into the game through a goal from Shane Gallagher they just couldn’t find the form that they are capable of. That said they did create chances but the damage had been done and Martin Duffy’s side will now concentrate their efforts on their push for promotion from the CT Ball Division Two.Convoy Arsenal 3 Bonagee United 2Despite the weather the conditions were perfect for football in Orchard Park. Both teams started brightly but cancelled each other out in the opening exchanges. The deadlock was broken in the 24th minute when Glenn Rainey nodded in at the back post. Convoy got back on level terms when Lee Guthrie finished off a great Darren Harvey cross. Two minutes later Convoy took the lead when a corner fell to Lee Guthrie at the edge of the box and he slotted it home. It turned out to be a great 10 minutes for Convoy when Darren Harvey cooly finished off a fine Convoy move. Convoy had their heads up and kept the pressure on until half time but couldn’t get the vital 4th goal. The second half started off a cagey affair with Bonagee pressing to get back into the game but Convoy a constant danger on the break. Bonagee did get their second in the 75th minute when Leon Kelly forced the ball home after Convoy failed to clear a corner. That led to an exciting finish but Convoy saw the game out and booked their place in the final. Best for Convoy were John A Kee, Conor Cairns and Lee Guthrie, with a good battling team performance from Bonagee. Referee: Martin QuinnReportsOld Orchard Saturday Division OneDonegal Town Reserves 3 Glencar Celtic 4Donegal Town hosted unbeaten table toppers Glencar Celtic at the Hospital Field in difficult conditions. Glencar started the stronger playing some good football. They were rewarded on 22 minutes when Stephen Browne got on the end of a clever through ball to finish with a deft chip over the keeper. Donegal began to get a foothold in the game soon after and equalised on 33 minutes, Gary Ward racing clear to finish with an even better chip than Glencar’s opener. The second half started with Glencar the stronger and they re-gained the lead on 59 minutes, Sean Houston latching onto a long ball over the top. Donegal came back into the match but missed a penalty on 78 minutes. They were punished for that miss 2 minutes later when Glencar went 3-1 up, Paddy Collins on target. All hope seemed lost for Donegal on 82 minutes when they were reduced to 10 men but this was not the case. Two quick fire goals on 84 and 86 minutes, from David Bustard and Adrian Ward respectively, seemed to have rescued a point for Donegal. Glencar were not to be denied the 3 points however, Stephen Browne getting his second of the game in the very last minute. Two great team performances culminating in one of the most exciting matches witnessed at the Hospital Field.Glenea United Reserves 7 Glenree United Reserves 2Glenea continued their good form with another good display. The away side opened the scoring when Vinnie McLaughlin fired past the home keeper after 20 minutes. Glenea soon got back into the game when Shane Coll scored direct from a free-kick. As the half progressed the home team began to take control and went close on a couple of occasions. In the 2nd half Glenea took the lead on 50 minutes when Shane Ferry turned in a Neil Mc Geever cross at the near post. Glenea extended the lead on 55 minutes when Aodhan Ferry’s through ball found Lee O’Brien who slotted home. Neil Mc Geever added the 4th goal on 58 minutes when he reacted quickest to a free-kick and headed home. Shane Ferry got the 5th goal when he drilled home Lee O’Brien’s cross from the left. Neil Mc Geever got the 6th when he tapped in from close range after Glenree failed to deal with a corner. Glenree pulled a goal back on 85 minutes when Peter Brannigan got onto a through ball and found the corner of the net. Glenea completed the scoring on 90 minutes when Aodhan Ferry turned in a cornerBest for Glenea were Kevin McFadden, Shane Ferry and Martin Maguire, while it was a team effort from Glenree. Referee: Martin Mc Anenny.Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoStrand Rovers 1 Curragh Athletic Reserves 0The sun shone high and the game started brightly with both teams passing the ball about nicely. Strand seemed to make better use of their wings early on and a delightful cross from Brendan Glackin saw Cathal Boyle head home to put Strand one up after 12 minutes. More good passages of play from Strand saw them create chance after chance, the closest coming to Darragh Hanlon who struck the crossbar just before half time. Into the second half and Curragh started trying to hit Strand on the counter attack but all credit to Strand’s defence who kept them at bay. Strand pushed hard again and enjoyed good spells of play in Curragh’s half of the field. Chance after chance fell for Strand with Brendan Glackin hitting the post on 70 minutes. Great play from Doalty Boyle on the left saw him send in numerous crosses to the Curragh box. Best for Strand were Stephen Glackin, Doalty Boyle,Mulroy Celtic 4 Tullyvinney Rovers 1Mulroy bounced back to winning ways courtesy of a resounding four one victory over Tullyvinney. Playing with a strong breeze at their back the home side took the lead through talisman Michael Sweeney who tapped in from close range. The second followed soon after when Packie Mc Elwaine raced clear to finish expertly past the advancing keeper. Mulroy continued to press and made it three nil almost immediately, Eamon Sweeney sending a free kick in from the half way line which ended up slipping through the goalkeeper’s hands. Five minutes later Michael Sweeney doubled his tally, dispatching a rasping shot into the bottom corner from eighteen yards. Tullyvinney pulled a goal back just before half time.

The home side were content to hit on the break with Ramelton taking more possession.

Ramelton were pushing at this stage threatening to make a game of it however Keadue made the game safe on seventy eight minutes when Adrian Hanlon got his fifth firing home from a left hand cross.

Aston Villa settle tax bill to allay immediate fears of administration

first_img Villa owner Tony Xia is under pressure 1 Aston Villa have resolved their immediate financial crisis and will settle their £4million tax bill.The club have paid £500,000 to HMRC and are expected to pay a further £1.2million by the end of the week, it is understood.The outstanding amount is likely to be paid swiftly after the club missed a tax payment on Friday, heightening growing fears of financial issues with Villa needing to find around £40million to comply with Financial Fair Play.Chief executive Keith Wyness was suspended on Tuesday amid reports he had fallen out with owner Tony Xia.Chairman Xia – now acting chief executive – has been struggling with short-term cash flow with tight rules on taking money out of China causing problems.But he currently has no intention of selling, although there are at least three parties interested in the Sky Bet Championship club.Administration is not yet an immediate fear for the club but Villa do need to find money in the long-term.Xia, who bought the club from Randy Lerner for £76million in 2016, is looking at funding options with Villa facing large-cost cutting measures following a failure to return to the Premier League.They lost the Championship final 1-0 to Fulham last month and face a third season out of the top flight.Xia has confirmed the club faces “severe FFP challenges” and that Villa need to be a sustainable club.Captain John Terry will not renew his contract after they missed out on promotion while star midfielder Jack Grealish could be sold to raise cash.Villa were relegated from the Premier League in 2016, losing an ever-present record, and their final parachute payment is cut to around £15million this year.The future of boss Steve Bruce is also uncertain with Xia yet to confirm the manager will remain in charge amid the financial uncertainty.last_img read more

Mahikeng airport freight hub on cards

first_img13 September 2013 The government of South Africa’s North West province is conducting a feasibility study for the development of a freight hub at Mahikeng International Airport. The study will form part of a wider freight transport strategy, including a passenger and freight rail plan, that is currently in the process of being drawn up, says Lesiba Moses Kgwele, spokesperson for the North West Premier’s office. The development of Mahikeng International was one of the priorities outlined by Premier Thandi Modise in her state of the province address earlier this year. The airport is currently undergoing a multi-million rand infrastructure upgrade to bring it into strict compliance with the regulations of the South African Civil Aviation Authority and the International Aviation Organisation. Kgwele said this week that R15-million was being spent on the rejuvenation of the airport’s runway, taxiways, apron and landing strip markings. A new 16-element instrument landing system (ILS) has been installed as part of the upgrade of the airport’s electrical grounding lighting system. “R30-million is also being spent on the project, to be completed in the current financial year,” Kgwele said. According to an approved Provincial Land Transport Framework report – which recommended the development of a freight hub or “dry port” in Mahikeng – the upgrades will enhance regional trade, eliminate border-crossing delays and minimise administrative inefficiencies.

Rise of the independent woman

first_imgThey embody a fresh promise. They possess the enviable ability to face challenges. And they have the temperament to think out-of-the-box. A sense of achievement is integral to their raison d’etre. They do not follow any hand-me-down lineage, but use their ideas and initiatives to jump to the corner office. They are on the road to achieve their goals and enjoy unabashedly what they do. This Women’s Day, we raise a toast to these eclectic bunch of talented and focussed women, who know what they want. Simply Punjabi celebrates the different hues of this smart brigade.A star for the stars: Ana Singh A costume designer whose Midas touch has transformed many a Bollywood star’s looks and destiny.With more than 900 films firmly tucked under her Swarovski belt, stylist Ana Singh has dressed the biggest stars in the film industry.The costume designer’s Midas touch has transformed many a star’s looks (think Karisma Kapoor in Raja Hindustani and Madhuri Dixit in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun). In fact, her two decades in the industry have run parallel to the evolution of costuming in Hindi cinema-from Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Saajan (1991), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) and Ghulam (1998) to Yaadein (2001), Ajnabee (2001), Umrao Jaan (2006) and the most recent Veer. The first Bollywood designer to float her own design studio (1995), Singh pioneered the concept of a style consultancy for high-profile celebrities.”I am not the only creative one out here. I’m just one of them. But, yes, I’d say that my spectrum is diverse. I’ve done entertainers, realistic films and period films,” says the proud Punjabi.Bagging two national awards for costume design, for Muzaffar Ali’s Umrao Jaan and Akbar Khan’s Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story, Singh received The Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award for her contribution to fashion research in Mission Kashmir. The creative genius is also the only designer to be conferred with Rashtriya Ekta Award (2002) for pioneering fashion in the Indian Film Industry. “If it’s about sheer numbers, it’s tough to beat my record. I’ve had my fair share of critical acclaim. It’s a wonderful feeling really. Nothing is more joyous than making your parents proud,” she gushes.A gold medalist from JJ School of Arts, Mumbai, in Textiles Culture, Design Content and Commercial Art, Singh has done a year’s training in pattern cutting and a course on nonstructured garments from Florence School of Fashion. “As India’s first Bollywood couturier, I pioneered my fraternity. But for retaining success, I need to constantly update my skills,” she adds. Five years back, she did a fabric structuring course in Florence, Italy. Now, she wants to do a refresher course in London. “I strongly believe in widening my knowledge base,” says the designer.Singh’s tryst with design began with retailing fashion through Glitterati, a fashion atelier. But destiny had bigger plans for her, “In those days, there were dresswalas but no designers. My label survived on the racks only for six months. Discouraged by the response, I designed the clothes for my first film Khatarnak (starring Sanjay Dutt and Anita Raaj). By the time that was over, I’d already begun to get good offers to design for movies.”Singh’s clothes in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, particularly, were remarkable in the way they filtered down to the streets, be it Madhuri Dixit’s red lace frock in the song Mausam ka jadu, the yellow dress of Maye ni Maye . “I’ve been doing regular western glamour for a long time, the kind I did for Pooja Bhatt, Raveena Tandon and Madhuri,” she says. But with the easy availability of luxury brands, she says it’s no more a difficult task. “So most Bollywood designers today just mix and match. But as a costumer, I want work that utilises my talent,” she says. Today she would prefer a film like Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, wherein Ajay Devgan’s costumes formed an important part of the film’s overall fabric.”Not a big fan of fashion in commercial cinema these days, Singh is gravitating toward period films. “While film costumes are a catalyst to move a film’s story forward in most films, they occupy a centrality in period films,” she reasons. Singh, who was recently in news for designing Salman Khan’s Rs 1.2 crore armour in Veer, says, “I still don’t know why such hype was created. Media made it seem like it was for one set of armour, whereas it was six sets that had to be created,” laughs the media recluse. Besides synonymying B Town fashion at its best, Singh brings her unique genius to everything she does. From churning out 11,000 clothes for the Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies at New Delhi to being the official designer for Femina Miss India for five years, Singh designed the personal wardrobe for Michael Jackson when he first visited India. “I was going mad.” She says it was a huge number of clothes for both occasions and far more challenging than the several wardrobes she’s done for Miss India, Miss Universe and Miss World. “I slogged 24×7, but it was a wonderful experience,” she says.Known for her signature print dresses (Christian art line) and her Swarovski encrusted accessories, Singh’s passionate about costume jewellery, “While working for bridal costumes, I always laid great emphasis on jewellery and accessories to complete the look. Soon compliments started pouring in and I was inspired to introduce a special line of custom-made costume jewellery,” she says. Rekha once walked into her store and bought the entire range of Mughal jewellery. She has also launched a costume jewellery line called ‘Just about Jewellery’. “It’s for the people who can’t afford expensive jewellery but want to look as though they can,” laughs Singh, adding, “I use only semi-precious stones, crystals and beads set in polished or treated silver. It has an awesome effect, without hitting the purse strings.”But the couturier rues the lack of style icons in today’s Bollywood. “We are suddenly becoming too casual in our dressing. Unfortunately, in the bargain, there are no style icons. Well, you do have stylish people but no style icons.” Her personal favourites are Hrithik Roshan (“He’s fab, as of today”), Aishwarya Rai and Preity Zinta. “There’s going to be no Aishwarya Rai for 200 hundred years. She inspires me to go beyond myself,” says Singh.Her favourite film stylist is Patricia Field (of the famous shocking red hair) responsible for turning the HBO’s Sex and the City friends Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda into international style icons. “I love the work that Patricia did on SATC…that’s very strong styling and for that I give her a thumbs up. She proved that style can sometimes win over substance,” she says. Anaita Shroff is one of her favourite Indian designers.The design maverick’s master work includes hand-painted accessory chests in devotion to legendary painter Raja Ravi Verma. And then, there’s her passion for body art, “It’s an ancient art that has roots in the tribal areas of Mexico and Rajasthan. I first flirted with this art in 1986, when I painted a falcon on Shroff’s macho torso for a magazine cover,” shares Singh.She believes in constant evolution. “Except for some wonderful moments I spend with my husband Jaiveer Singh, my father and my beautiful puppies, I’m raring to design most of the time. I love my frenzied fashion world madly. Maybe, I was born mad. But then, it’s good. Isn’t it?” asks the designer.Favourite filmsFor Singh, realistic films-Raincoat, Khakee, to Border and Refugee-brought out the best in her. She also loved creating the Lucknawi look in Umrao Jaan.Top designsVeer: Salman Khan’s shining bronze armour was a Singh creation.Mission Kashmir: Singh received the Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award for her fashion research for Preity Zinta’s look.Umrao Jaan: Aishwarya Rai’s famous costume and look were made by Singh, too.Hum Aapke Hain Kaun: The purple saree worn by Madhuri Dixit became a staple in every Indian woman’s bridal trousseau.

She exercises regularly and is often mistaken as her daughter’s friend on parent-teacher meetings.Super planner: Divya Dhanda The woman who has exposed Punjab’s chi-chi set to luxury labelsShe orchestrates shopaholic dreams and makes luxury lineups come alive. As Punjabis get increasingly brand savvy and move beyond home-grown designers to embrace A-List international labels, 40-year-old Divya Dhanda is becoming a much sought after name among the region’s swish set. Organising glitzy trunk shows in cities like Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar at frequent intervals, Dhanda has successfully brought world’s finest luxe labels at an affluent Punjabi’s doorstep.”A Punjabi’s penchant for everything lavishly flamboyant is unparalleled. Right now, with the growing international exposure and affluence, they are living it up with international luxury labels,” she says. Dhanda says many leading global luxury brand marketers have started taking our market seriously. However, Punjabis had to pack their shopping bags and head for the metros for luxury shopping earlier. Therefore, the concept of a one stop label event was guaranteed to succeed. “It’s basically about cutting down on travel time to grab global luxury,” muses a glamorous looking Dhanda, whose Trunk Shows are an amalgamation of world’s most renowned names in the luxury and fashion.Feeding the sheer love of fashion in Punjabi women since 2006, Dhanda has brought plump luxury labels Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Christie’s, Brioni, Aigner, Judith Leiber, Poleci, Just Cavalli, Kenzo and Valentino as well as Indian designers Malini Ramani, Gaurav Gupta, Shantanu-Nikhil, Mirari, Maheep Kapoor and Manish Malhotra to Punjab. “Luxury labels management is as much an art as science. The creative challenge here is to create a demand for something that is not really needed,” quips the immaculately dressed Event Coordinator.Coming from an army background, Dhanda grew up living and being schooled in various parts of the country. “This made me meet different people, make new friends and also absorb the exposure to various cities,” she says. Hence, her interpersonal skills were honed. She says she’d always been a creative child but her tryst with architecture enhanced her appreciation for the arts. She became an architect after completing her Bachelors in Architecture but could not pursue this career choice due to on-going riots at that time. The lady went on to join her husband’s bicycle business and as an export director, “My role involved travelling to various countries and exposure regarding the lack of luxury label availability in India. So, I thought of introducing luxury brands in the country,” she explains.However, organising trunk shows, store launches, art shows and promotional events for luxury brands is just one facet of this Ludhiana-based socialite’s personality. Balancing her love for luxury fashion with social responsibility; she regularly holds fund-raising events for Nirdosh School, which is run by the Inner Wheel Club. “My tryst with these kids began when I first visited a New Delhi-based NGO Akashay Paristham, and started organising fund-raising events on its lines in Ludhiana,” quips Dhanda whose multi stall exhibitions are part fundraisers for institutes looking after children with disability. The lady recently received a performance award from Inner Wheel Club at Ludhiana for contributing to NIRDOSH School for mentally challenged children.All in all, it’s been an exhilarating journey for Dhanda. Her trunk shows and exhibitions have garnered an overwhelming response. “An event is great if it makes all the people involved in it comfortable at the end of the day. It’s basically about constantly upgrading oneself, honing one’s leadership instincts to get jobs done and thinking out-of-thebox to get your brand the best possible exposure in the short span of time,” reasons Divya, who believes her greatest achievement has been putting together a consistent donation to the cause of disability in children.Having exposed Punjab’s chi-chi set to luxury labels, the lady’s herself an incorrigible branda-holic too, “I vouch for different brands for different things and occasions-while my faves are Rock and Republic, True Religion , j Brand for the wardrobe staple of Denims, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Bottega Veneta satiate my unending fascination for accessories. And of course, my all time favourite is the LBD from Dolce & Gabbana.” Swearing by hard work, discipline and the power of prayer, Dhanda’s daily routine involves around either yoga or gym during a day-break, sending kids to school, reading newspapers, taking care of her business events, social networking, reading and spending time with family. A glamorous socialite, and an ambitious entrepreneur, Dhanda is a fine cocktail of a bit of everything including a whole lot of brand-bling.Her brand brigade Dhanda worked on bringing plum luxury labels like Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Christie’s, Brioni, Aigner, Judith Leiber, Poleci, Just Cavalli, Kenzo and Valentino as well as Indian designers Malini Ramani, Gaurav Gupta and Shantanu and Nikhil.The transformer: Puneet Nilibar From a sports buff to a designer, fashion completes her.For most Punjabis, her name synonymies sensuous silhouettes with feminine appeal. Engaged exclusively with the designer segment and the website of Nilibar- Ludhiana’s famous boutique chain of women’s designer wear and bridal trousseau-she is responsible for the 50-year-old chain’s growing global appeal. Having grown up in a Ludhina-based business family as a sports buff who loved swimming and skating, Nilibar never thought that she’d become a fashion entrepreneur, until of course, she got married in the famous family, “As a child,I always took keen interest in dressing up myself. And I nursed a strange fascination for fashion though never thought that it would become my profession,” says Nilibar. However, she believes, it was a stroke of destiny that she got married into the Nilibar family and dived headlong into designerwear as a profession. And today she is the brain behind nilibar.com, that has made shopping accessible to Punjabis. Be it your bridal trousseau or an outfit for a party, Nilibar’s collection is just a click away.Starting out with lehengas, dupattas, pure Pashmina shawls, and other dress materials, the store chain was the first in Punjab to stock ready-to-wear besides high-end designers like Anamika Khanna, Sabyasachi, Suneet Verma, Manish Arora, Geisha designs and many more. “Besides introducing Punjabis to the concept of designer bridalwear, ours is the first store in Punjab to have the lowest and fixed prices, and believe it or not, we have never gone on sale. We just don’t need to,” says Nilibar. So what’s more, with their customised online alterations and global home delivery? Nilibar claims her store to be the hippest ethnic wear address for NRIs. “Our online sale is four times more than our on-store sales,” says Nilibar. She has contributed significantly in the label’s rising popularity, not just in Punjab and Delhi but also among NRIs based in the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya and Canada.Fashion for the lovely lady translates into something that completes her as an individual and makes her stand out, “My favorite brands are Chanel, Tory Burch and Jimmy Choo,” says Nilibar. Among the Indian designers, she prefers to adorn Anamika’s clothes. “Her silhouttes occupy the maximum space in my closet,” shares the lady who cherishes her shandleir lace sari, her j brand jeans and the jamma shawl handed over to her by her granny. Though Nilibar counts creativity and persistence as the core qualities of a successful fashion designer, she exclaims that overcoming her complacency has been her biggest challenge. “My husband is the wind beneath my wings and has always been my driving force,” chirps the diva whose day begins with yoga and ends with her family and friends. A huge fan of Roxette and Lady Gaga, the fashionista loves holidaying at the lake district in the UK and the French Riveria.Her claim to fame Among the most popular destinations of ethnic wear in Punjab, Nilibar has been showcasing her new lines at A-list international events such as chairty show, The Graffiti Ball in 2008. That was when she became the talk of the town.Dessert diva: Vibha Pahwa The lady behind delicious bakes for gourmands across North India.She ate her first chocolate before she turned one, baked a chocolate cake at nine and battled troubled teens believing that there is no problem that a chocolate cake can’t fix. No wonder, dessert diva Vibha Pahwa became Punjab’s youngest chef while in her twenties. Currently based in Delhi, the business graduate and Pastry Chef from London-based Le Cordon Bleu, one of the world’s best French culinary schools, is the young lady behind vAnila, which sells artfully created, delicious bakes for gourmands across North.Hailing from Ludhiana’s famous Pahwa family of Avon Cycles, she became Punjab’s first-and only girl -to embark on a career as a pastry chef. Pahwa admits that baking for her is a genetic bug of sorts, “I grew up in Ludhiana in a big, happy joint family. My mom, aunts and older sisters would constantly be cooking and baking and that is when I started getting interested in baking. I just took it to the next level by learning it at professional schools and making a career out of it,” smiles Pahwa, a self-confessed chocoholic. She believes that it was her parents who let her nurture her dream. “I still remember how dad used to eat the hard-as-rusks cakes I baked as a child. He not just ate them, but appreciated them too,” laughs Pahwa. And it’s after her mom’s name Anila, that she has got this fabulous idea to name her brand vAnila. “Without my parents’ support I would not have developed authentic French-style patisseries for food aficionados in Punjab and Delhi,” she adds.Pahwa’s stint at popular eateries across the globe also helped her in her new venture, “I travel quite a bit. Besides acquiring the finer nuances of baking their local specialties, I’ve taken extensive sugar work classes for top chefs in London and USA,” she adds. She says “I especially learnt a lot from two awesome sugar artists, Jude and Fibian,” says the 30-year-old entrepreneur, who worked with a Mumbai-based lady Juhi before branching off on her own to set up her desserts label vanila.Pahwa insists that baking is a highly specialised art, “Not that my baking-journey was a cakewalk. Though, starting out in a highly competitive market like Delhi was exciting but also scary. I slogged day and night for three years,” says Pahwa. She says in the beginning there were dry spells and then with the response warming up suddenly, there were sleepless nights and dark circles. “But now, people know me in the market and my clients keep coming back for more. I’m getting orders from Delhi and entire Punjab and am finally happy with where I am,” shares Pahwa, whose just created a Facebook page and vAnila already has more than 1,000 fans.Often dubbed as the cake goddess who sells smiles, she is quite a pro at rustling up anything. “My USP is the sugar creations, or sugar paste and fondant work that I do for kids cakes, wedding novelty cakes and naughty cakes to designer handbags, shoe cakes and human character cakes,” chirps Pahwa, who spends long hours cooking up delicacies in her kitchen and feels amply rewarded when she sees a smile on people’s faces.Her signature dessertsNew York cheesecake, the French tea cake, pies, Arabic cakes, Choux pastry, ice cream cakes and tiramisu to delectable cup cakes, chocolate mousse or the chocolate mud cakes, luscious tarts and designer cookies.Brand Candy: Sudeepa Singh The actor and supermodel, who never wanted to sizzle the ramps.Telly buffs remember Sudeepa as the fit and fab model in Kellogg’s weight loss challenge advert, the naughty executive in the Virgin Mobile ad and the lovely face in an Aircel Digital TV ad. Hardly 23, this petite model from Amritsar has already endorsed popular brands like Images Bazaar, Tide, Mentos, Big Bazaar, Pantaloons, Tele-shopping; besides having appeared in ads for Santoor, LIC, Amul ice cream and Emami. Having acted in Bollywood movie Action Replay starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai, Sudeepa has played the lead in Punjabi movies Yaaran Naal Baharan with Jimmy Shergill, Juhee Babbarr and Gurpreet Ghuggi, Kabaddi and more recently in just released Ek Noor.The lovely lass was spotted by Gyan Sahay, the director of photography of the 2004 Zee Antakshari TV competition, who persuaded her to participate in an upcoming music show on Zee. “I had always been a shy, studious and introvert person and never thought in my wildest dreams that I’ll be a model and actress. I had lived in Amritsar all my life. Being a topper throughout, I had plans to join the civil services. However, after having pursued my graduation from Shahzada Nand College, Amritsar, I participated in the music contest only because the initial auditions were happening in my home town,” informs Sudeepa.Sudeepa was noticed by Gajindra Singh, during the auditions of Aantakshri, “He told me to participate in the Zee Cine Stars ki Khoj talent contest, where young, upcoming artistes battled for a title that would place them in a new show on the Hindi general entertainment channel,” informs Singh. She landed up as the first runner-up and from here began her modelling and acting journey. Later on she went on to bag Kabhi to Nazar Milao for Sony TV in 2006 and Ardhangini for Zee TV in 2007. Commercials for Virgin mobile and Aircel followed and people started calling Singh the ad queen. Having appeared in music videos for Sardool Sikander, Giipy, Ravinder Grewal and Sarabjeet Cheema, Singh is currently endorsing Karbon Phone, PC jewellers and Reid and Taylor. And yet, the Amritsar kudi remains a simple girl at heart. “I owe everything to my parents and Babaji. Being a small town girl, adjusting to Mumbai life at 18 didn’t come easy,” says Singh. In Mumbai, days as a struggling actor made her learn a lot of things.”I didn’t know where to go or whom to meet. But God has been very kind and opportunities kept coming,” says the pretty model who’s currently the hot topic of discussion at most kitty parties, “Women want me to marry their sons, brothers or whoever is eligible bachelor in their family. They keep sending a list of eligible bachelors to my family,” laughs Singh who confesses getting goose bumps on being flooded with marriage proposals every now and then.The lady describes herself as a big foodie, “Hailing from Amritsar, I can’t resist Punjabi food. But I put on weight real fast, so am constantly on the go and stick to my gymming and yoga sessions. The eldest child of her parents, Sudeepa confesses being deeply spiritual, a workaholic and addicted to Mango, Diesel and Zara; besides her Facebook account, that is flooded with friend requests.Attributing her success to reality shows, her Babaji and lots of hard work, with a little bit of luck thrown in, Sandeepa confesses having a soft corner for television industry, “I respect television from the bottom of my heart. It is giving a better future to thousands of people…and the exposure it provides these days is absolutely awesome. It is only by being a part of a reality show, Zee India’s Best, that I became what I am today. Nobody knew me but reality show gave me recognition.”In her kitty She has endorsed varous big brands like Tide, Mentos, Big Bazaar, Pantaloons, Tele-shopping; besides having appeared in ads for Santoor, LIC, Amul ice cream and Emami. Her recent achievement was a Aishwarya and Akshay starrer, Action Replay.Corporate trainer: Preeti Dhillon To escape the monotony of a 9-5 job, she has started her own corporate training company.This creative professional had been training entrepreneurs for nine years, when she decided to turn one herself. Having worked as the country head with the Asia’s leading education and human resource development company Global Talent Consultants, besides companies like American Express,Wiproand Hewitt Associates, 36-year-old Dhillon recently decided to set up her own training company EZnet consulting in 2010.”Though I’ve grown and learnt immensely working with these topnotch companies, I feel today’s active training firms are structured and more robotic in the delivery part. They bring light skinned people to add credentials to their workshops and create unnecessary hype,” says the Chandigarh-bred Punjabi pro with a decade’s experience in marketing communication, event and brand management and sales campaign management across multiple domains in different sectors and organisations. A vivid fan of the talent in India, Dhillon believes that Indian trainers have a better understanding of Indian culture and vast product knowledge, “As trainers, we should not just provide trainees their value for money but impart knowledge and confidence; and this is what my company aims to provide.” Dhillon feels that in today’s fast-paced competitive environment, unavailability of self tailored modules and industry specific trainings are a huge problem, “Students, executives and budding entrepreneurs identify the need of learning but can’t spare time to join any courses. Similarly, small to medium sized professional colleges and corporates have an amazing talent pool but do not have the budgets for an effective training department,” explains Dhillon, EZnet’s chief executive facilitator. That is the reason she works toward customised training modules for this segment that are cost and time-effective. Striving to develop organisations and individuals through motivational training, cultural integration, organisational designing and developing best workplace practices, EZnet consulting focuses on self-driven training practices to Punjab. “Right from the time when I mentored an OJT batch of about 40 employees for Spectramind Pvt. Ltd in 2003, I wanted to guide as many people to succeed which would lead to a bigger success of the organisation, state and eventually the country,” says Dhillon. Now she is finally at ease with that happening through EZnet. Dhillon is presently busy organising training programmes, workshops and internal sales enablement for the employees of th UK-based telecom giant.Her company’s tailor made modules have received immense positive response and now she’s busy training companies in Delhi and Amritsar. “I am currently working on collective training batches for Chandigarh,” says Dhillon. She has recently tied up with Bhutan Chamber of Commerce to impart training to professionals there. “I am excited about the fact that I will be meeting different people and it’s definitely going to be a good experience,” she adds. Dhillon has also tied up with Academy of Competence Exploration in Lucknow to train PGDMA batches with course materials that are industry specific. Having workedwith leaders like Padamshree Dr. Pritam Singh and Dr. Kiran Bedi, Dhillon draws inspiration from her late grandmother Dr. Prakash Kaur, the first woman minister of Punjab.She credits her exposure, however, to her childhood, “Since my father was in the army we travelled a lot and got acquainted with different cultures. During vacations at my grandmother’s home in Amritsar, there was a continuous flow of visitors from all walks of life extending support to her political career,” smiles Dhillon. All that turned her into a confident individual. Her greatest high, however, comes from training human resource and coming up with formulae she believes in.In her spare timeThe fitness buff also loves gardening, playing table tennis and practising yoga. But she strongly believes in digging deep into the logistics of training human resource and coming up with formulae she believes in.advertisementadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Euro 2016: Croatia score late to stun Spain 2-1 and win group

first_imgIvan Perisic scored in the 87th minute as Croatia stunned Spain in a 2-1 comeback victory Tuesday to finish top of Group D at the European Championship.His winning goal gave Croatia its first victory over in 22 years and ended Spain’s unbeaten run at a European Championship that stretched back to 2004. Defeat means that Spain will now meet Italy in the round of 16 at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis. Croatia will play one of the third-place teams in the northern French city of Lens.It had all started so well for Spain, when striker Alvaro Morata put his side ahead in the seventh minute, redirecting the ball into the net after a shot by midfielder Cesc Fabregas. Spain playmaker David Silva had split open the Croatia defense with a through-ball to create the chance.Nikola Kalinic equalized just before halftime with a nice back-heel flick that beat Spain goalkeeper David De Gea at the near post after Perisic delivered the cross from the left. (Full Euro 2016 coverage )Spain had a chance to retake the lead, but defender Sergio Ramos saw his penalty saved by Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic in the 72nd minute.It proved to be a costly miss when Perisic fired in the winner with a few minutes left in the match. Perisic scored with a low left-foot shot, beating Spain goalkeeper David De Gea at his near post to finish off a fast counter attack.Both teams had entered the match at the Stade the Boardeaux guaranteed a spot in the knockout stage. However, both teams wanted to win especially as the runner-up in the group meets Italy.advertisementCroatia’s surprise victory came despite playing without star midfielder Luka Modric and forward Mario Mandzukic, both out with muscle injuries.Spain was at full strength despite having already qualified, playing with the same 11 that won its first two group games.The result ended Spain’s 14-game unbeaten streak at the European Championship over two tournaments. It also ended the team’s run of seven straight games without conceding a goal. The last time it had conceded was in a 1-1 draw against Italy in its first match in the 2012 tournament, 734 minutes ago.Croatia hadn’t beaten Spain since a 2-0 result in friendly in Valencia in 1994. The teams had also met in the final group game at Euro 2012, when La Roja ran out 1-0 winners.last_img read more

Safeguarding boot code and other critical data: how little-known data protection settings in NOR Flash can help improve system reliability

first_img Continue Reading Previous Advantech upgrades industrial motherboards with 8th gen Intel Core processorsNext How embedded projects run into trouble: Jack’s Top Ten – Number Ten This article describes a number of features of the operation of SpiFlash NOR Flash memories from Winbond which may be used to protect critical data. These protection features help designers to avoid the risk that their system will be disabled because of bit errors caused by noise, or because a host SoC mistakenly overwrites critical data. By Ken Lin, Deputy Director of Flash Memory Technical Marketing and Application Engineering, Winbond Electronics Corporation, www.winbond.comSPI NOR Flash is the electronics design engineer’s favourite memory type for low-density, high-reliability storage of application code and data in embedded systems with a storage requirement of up to 512Mbits.To facilitate broad adoption across the industry, NOR Flash memory technology follows certain standards, for instance governing the serial interface to a host microcontroller or SoC. One of these standard features is the way in which NOR Flash allows the system designer to configure protection of stored data. Protection may be applied to a specified fraction of the entire memory array in which mission-critical data is stored: most often, this is boot code, since if boot code were impaired or lost, the entire system would be disabled.Protection helps to ensure that data in protected blocks is not corrupted, for instance by noise, or mistakenly erased and overwritten by a faulty operation implemented by the host system. If an Erase or Program command specifies a memory region that contains a protected block, this command will be ignored. In other words, protected blocks are tagged as Read-only memory.The way in which the standard approach to data protection was implemented many years ago in NOR Flash has more recently, however, begun to constrain designers’ flexibility in their use of the higher-density memory devices available today. This has prompted Winbond to introduce new, proprietary extensions to the standard protection functions to give more control over the block size and the operation of the protection function. This article describes the reason for introducing these new features, and outlines their uses for system designers who use NOR Flash memory.Increase in protected block sizes When the data protection function was created many years ago, NOR Flash memory densities were much smaller than they are today. At that time, just three Block Protection (BP) bits in the Flash IC’s status register were enough to specify the portion of the total memory array that needed to be protected. In a Winbond NOR Flash memory device’s datasheet, these status register bits are shown as BP0, BP1 and BP2. These three bits give eight options for selecting the size of the protected region, from as little as 1/64th of the array to as much as ½.Fig. 1: The BPx bits in the status register of a NOR Flash device allow the user to specify the size of the protected region. (Source: Winbond W25Q128JV datasheet) So the maximum granularity available to the user is 1/64th of the total array. The problem today is that embedded systems require more storage than before, and Flash memory manufacturers have responded by providing products with larger memory capacity. The Winbond W25Q128JV, for instance, is a 128Mbit memory: a 1/64th portion is 2Mbits. But what if the system designer only needs to apply protection to boot code, and not to any other code or data? And the boot code is just 50kbits?In this case, a protected region of 2Mbits would store just 50kbits of code, and so – because the region has Program and Erase protection – most of the protected block will remain empty.Now Winbond has introduced a new feature to solve this problem: it is the ‘SEC’ status register bit shown at the far left in Figure 1. This SEC bit allows the designer to specify protection at the sector rather than the block level. As Figure 2 shows, this divides the array into portions as small as 1/4096th – 32kbits in the W25Q128JV part, for instance. This gives the designer the flexibility to protect very small pieces of critical code, such as boot code, while leaving almost all of the memory array free of Program/Erase protection and available for storage of any other code and data.Fig. 2: The SEC register bit enables protection to be specified at the sector level. (Source: Winbond W25Q128JV datasheet) Figure 2 also shows, highlighted in yellow, another feature introduced by Winbond: the TB (Top/Bottom) register bit. By default (TB=0), the allocation of block or sector protection starts at the bottom of the memory array of addresses. This is because most CPUs boot from the bottom of the array, so the protected region holding boot code should be located at the bottom for the fastest operation and the most efficient use of main memory.Intel CPUs, however, boot from the top. So with the TB bit, Winbond gives users of Intel devices the option to allocate memory addresses at the top of the array for block or sector protection, by configuring TB=1 in the status register.Applying block protection to almost an entire array In standard NOR Flash memory ICs, the option to configure blocks for Program/Erase protection starts with the smallest 1/64th increment, and enables protection for up to half of the array, as shown in Figure 2. In some applications, however, the requirement for storage of user data is nil or almost nil, and nearly all the memory array is occupied by boot and fixed application code. An example of such an application is a TV remote control: here, only a small amount of unprotected memory space is required for infrequent end-user configuration settings (for instance to pair the remote control to a new media device). Nearly all the memory space is for application code, which will not change and so benefits from Program/Erase protection.A status register bit provided by Winbond meets this application requirement. It is the Complement (CMP) bit: this reverses the protection setting asserted by the BP and SEC bits. If the BP bits are configured to protect a 1/64th portion of the memory array with the default setting of CMP=0, when CMP=1 protection will be applied to a 63/64th portion of the array, and only 1/64th will remain unprotected.Reinforced protection with hardware lock on status register settings To provide additional confidence in the protection of critical data such as boot code, a NOR Flash memory IC can apply a hardware lock to the block/sector protection firmware (register) settings. This is achieved via the WP pin (see Figure 3). The status of the WP pin is controlled with the SRP (Status Register Protect) register bit.Fig. 3: pin assignments on the W25Q128JV SOIC package, showing the Write Protect (WP) pin. (Source: W25Q128JV datasheet) Some users might be familiar with the WP pin in parallel Flash devices, which has a simple Write Protect function. The function of the WP pin in serial NOR Flash devices is different: it protects the register settings that configure the Program/Erase protection of blocks and sectors via the BP and SEC register bits. Once the BP and SEC settings are made and the WP pin is asserted (WP=Low), no change to the BP and SEC settings may be made without pulling the WP pin High.The ultimate protection of critical data Users of serial NOR Flash devices such as the Winbond SpiFlash® series of products can guarantee that protected regions will never be programmed or erased after shipment from the factory – effectively turning protected blocks into one-time programmable (OTP) memory space.This is achieved by applying a permanent lock to the block and sector protection register settings. The so called Active Permanent Lock can be applied with the SRL (Status Register Lock) register bit. This permanently, irrevocably locks the data in protected blocks. If a bug is found in protected code in future, or an important security update needs to be applied in the field, it cannot be done if the Active Permanent Lock has been implemented. This is a serious consequence, and so Winbond requires a special instruction sequence to be followed to implement Active Permanent Lock, which is only available by application to Winbond – the instructions are not listed in the datasheet.For most users, a better option is the Power Supply Lock-Down function: this has the same effect of locking the status register settings when the device is active, but each time the device is powered down the status register lock is lifted. This leaves a window open to change the register settings every time the device is powered on before the Power Supply Lock-Down is implemented again.Enhanced data protection with advanced Flash features This article has described a number of features of the operation of SpiFlash NOR Flash memories from Winbond which may be used to protect critical data. These protection features help designers to avoid the risk that their system will be disabled because of bit errors caused by noise, or because a host SoC mistakenly overwrites critical data.The range of options for protecting data, and for locking the protection settings, is not necessarily well known even by long-standing users of NOR Flash memory devices. System designers can take advantage of them to improve the reliability of their products’ field operation, simply by using the full array of register settings provided by Winbond in SpiFlash NOR Flash devices.Please contact if you have any further questions.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more

Healthy Sexuality Resource Available for Youth

first_imgSex? — A Healthy Sexuality Resource, is now available to helpyoung Nova Scotians make informed decisions about relationshipsand sex. The 117-page book includes such topics as relationships,decision making, sexual assault, sexually transmitted infectionsand contraception. “The intention of this resource is to provide factual, easy-to-understand information to help youth make safe, healthy choices,”said Health Promotion Minister Rodney MacDonald. “The statisticsclearly told us that we needed to do more to help youth makeinformed decisions.” Sex? — A Healthy Sexuality Resource, was developed by a workinggroup made up of staff of the Office of Health Promotion anddepartments of Health and Education, district Public HealthServices and a plain language writer. Other contributing membersof the working group included youth representatives, MetroPlanned Parenthood and Dalhousie Family Medicine. More than 500 youth were consulted to find out what they wantedand needed to know and to review a draft of the resource. Theresource was also reviewed by parents and teachers in rural andurban areas throughout the province. Bev Mullin is a parent and the president of the Nova ScotiaFederation of Home and School Associations. She said that whileparents are the first and most important resource for youth onmatters of sexuality and sexual health, this resource will help. “As parents, we must take the opportunity to read this book,learn the pressures our children encounter in their everydaylives, and teach them about healthy sexuality,” she said. The resource was also reviewed by national and provincial expertsin the field of sexual health and sex education. “What makes this document unique is the author’s ability tocontinually emphasize the message that all individuals must carefor themselves, must make choices for themselves and besupportive of individual choices,” said Dr. Joan Wenning, apediatric and adolescent gynaecologist from the IWK HealthCentre. “The resource not only provides factual information, italso focuses on the importance of helping young people developgood communication and assertiveness skills which will translateinto healthier relationships.” All the information in the resource is currently availablethrough more than 30 pamphlets and other assorted print materialsused by public health staff. This resource combines all thatinformation in one place, and presents it in a way that isaccessible to youth and in a format that engages them. The resource will be available free to all Nova Scotians aged 12to 17. Public Health Services will work with six of the sevenEnglish school boards to develop individual plans to distributeit to youth in grades 7 to 12, starting in September. Youth whoaren’t able to receive it through schools can get it from PublicHealth Services and their community partners. The Acadian schoolboard will decide on distribution after reviewing a translatedversion. The resource will be available to private and FirstNations schools who wish to assist local Public Health with itsdistribution. Parents will have an opportunity to view the resource at theirlocal library, public health office, their child’s school or onthe Office of Health Promotion’s website. The resource can alsobe purchased through Nova Scotia Government Publications for$12.95 plus tax and shipping.

Ottawa fines two cargo ships for speeding in right whale protection zone

The federal government is fining two cargo ships for allegedly breaking new speed limits introduced in an attempt to prevent endangered right whales from being struck by boats.On Friday, Transport Canada handed penalties of $7,800 each to the Americaborg, a Dutch container ship, and the Atlantic Spirit, a bulk carrier registered in Hong Kong.Ottawa brought in new measures earlier this month that expanded a slowdown zone in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and required vessels in one shipping lane to reduce their speed to 10 knots when a North Atlantic right whale is spotted in the area.Transport Canada says other efforts include closing more fisheries and increasing aerial surveillance, with five aircraft tracking the marine mammals daily.Since early June, eight right whales have died in Canadian waters, the worst death toll since 2017 when there were 12 confirmed deaths in Canadian waters and five in the United States. Fisheries Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said Tuesday only one death has been reported since the “aggressive” new measures came into effect on July 8 to protect the planet’s 400 remaining right whales.Instead of heading to their traditional summer foraging grounds in the Bay of Fundy and the Roseway Basin off southwestern Nova Scotia, the population has shifted to a more northerly destination — right into the busy shipping lanes of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence.The Canadian Press read more

Most actively traded companies on the TSX

The Canadian Press TORONTO — Some of the most active companies traded Monday on the Toronto Stock Exchange:Toronto Stock Exchange (16,304.05, up 154.26 points).Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B). Industrials. Up four cents, or 2.41 per cent, to $1.70 on 7.8 million shares.Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX). Materials. Down 26 cents, or 1.07 per cent, to $24.12 on 7.1 million shares.Encana Corp. (TSX:ECA). Energy. Up 33 cents, or 5.92 per cent, to $5.90 on 6.1 million shares.B2Gold Corp. (TSX:BTO). Materials. Down 11 cents, or 2.33 per cent, to $4.62 on 4.8 million shares.Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX:ACB). Health care. Down 11 cents, or 1.39 per cent, to $7.80 on 4.4 million shares.Manulife Financial Corp. (TSX:MFC). Financials. Down three cents, or 0.14 per cent, to $22.18 on 4.4 million shares.Companies in the news:CannTrust Holdings Inc. (TSX:TRST). Down 10 cents or 3.6 per cent to $2.69. The Ontario government’s cannabis wholesaler and online retailer is returning all products from CannTrust Holdings Inc. — valued at roughly $2.9-million — because they do not conform with the terms of its supply deal with the beleaguered cannabis company. CannTrust said Monday the Ontario Cannabis Store has determined that some of the products it sold to the crown corporation were “non-conforming” under the terms of its master cannabis supply agreement.Husky Energy Inc. (TSX:HSE). Up 45 cents or 5.13 per cent to $9.22. Shares in Husky Energy Inc. increased after an RBC Dominion Securities analyst suggested its low share price makes this a good time for the company to be taken private. In a report over the weekend, analyst Greg Pardy suggests that Husky’s near-15-year-low share prices make privatization attractive for the entities controlled by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing which own 69.5 per cent of the equity. He says going private would allow Husky to capture much of the gap between its market value and base net asset value of $19.53 per share.Hudson’s Bay Co. (TSX:HBC). Up 71 cents or 7.57 per cent to $10.09. The Hudson’s Bay Co. insiders who want to take Canada’s oldest retailer private face a new obstacle after an investment firm snapped up about one tenth of the company’s outstanding shares. The Catalyst Capital Group Inc. announced Monday it acquired nearly 18.5 million of the retailer’s shares — about a 10.05 per cent stake in the company — for $187 million as a result of its tender offer made in late July in an effort to oppose a privatization bid led by HBC chairman Richard Baker. A Catalyst spokesperson declined to disclose how big a stake it now holds in HBC.Transat A.T. (TSX:TRZ). Down nine cents to $16.54. The head of Quebec telecommunications giant Quebecor Inc. is dangling a potential offer for Transat A.T. if the tour operator’s shareholders or regulatory authorities block Air Canada’s $720-million offer. Pierre Karl Peladeau, who says he owns about 1.6 per cent of the outstanding shares of Air Transat’s parent company, says he plans to vote against the $18 per share offer by Canada’s largest airline, saying it is “contrary to the public interest.” Peladeau says in a news release that the deal goes against “the best interests of (Transat AT), its employees, Quebec consumers and the Quebec economy.” read more

Ohio State players upset over loss of Sprinkle confident in defense without

Tracy Sprinkle (93) lays on the field with a leg injury. He left the game following his injury during the first game of the 2016 season against Bowling Green on Sept. 3 in Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 77-10. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorWith one shove from a Bowling Green offensive lineman, the season of Ohio State redshirt junior defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle took an abrupt turn on Saturday afternoon. The shove sent Sprinkle backwards, causing his right knee to buckle awkwardly inward.OSU coach Urban Meyer shared the news that many Buckeye fans feared while watching the starting defensive tackle off the field. The training staff that helped Sprinkle off the field told the coach that the injury was with his patella tendon.“It’s a surgery and a season-ending is what I’ve been told. We’ll update further as we know more,” Meyer said. “And that’s the worst part of this darned game is when a guy gets hurt, especially a guy like that who has committed so much to this team and program. Our prayers are with Tracy.”Few comeback stories are as unique as that of Sprinkle. After being dismissed from the team for off-the-field issues, Sprinkle earned his way back to the Scarlet and Gray and earned the trust of Meyer.Many held high expectations for the Elyria, Ohio, native. The OSU coaching staff spoke volumes about Sprinkle during spring drills, and ultimately rewarded his hard work with a starting role.The comradery the Buckeyes have keeps the team close, and results in a universal feeling of sorrow throughout the entire program when a player is injured. Fellow OSU defensive linemen were pleased by how the team performed on Saturday, but felt a certain level of remorse for what their teammate had went through.“He’s everything. When we think of Rushmen, ‘How She ‘Gon Eat,’ everything. That’s Tracy,” junior defensive end Jalyn Holmes said. “I hate to see him go down, but I know he will still be there in spirit and he’s going to bounce back. He will definitely bounce back.”The replacement for Sprinkle, redshirt freshman Dre’Mont Jones, did not record any tackles against Bowling Green. Jones is a former three-star prospect according to 247Sports, and will most likely be moved into the second defensive tackle position, with junior Michael Hill moving over to take over up to fill the hole left by Sprinkle.The depth of the team that Meyer has talked about for the past few months will likely be put to the test following the injury to Sprinkle. Currently on the depth chart, the Buckeyes have three defensive tackles other than Sprinkle. According to the roster, there are eight total players at the position.Replacing a starter is never an easy task for any team, but redshirt sophomore defensive end Sam Hubbard knows the team is up to the challenge.“We can’t really replace a guy like Tracy, but young guys and other guys like ends gotta step up and improve their game and pick up what he left behind. But, he’s still going to be there for us,” Hubbard said. “We’ll see if we move guys around, but I’m confident in Dre’Mont Jones and Davon (Hamilton) all them to help us.”Hamilton, a redshirt freshman defensive tackle from Pickerington, Ohio, took advantage of his playing time, picking up a share of a sack with Holmes.Any changes Meyer and the rest of the OSU coaching staff make are expected to be announced later in the week.The Buckeyes will be put to the test, minus Sprinkle, on Sept. 10 at 3:30 p.m. against Tulsa in Ohio Stadium. read more

Karara Nippon Eirich grinding collaboration wins CEEC medal

first_imgAn outstanding collaboration between Karara Mining Ltd and Nippon Eirich to implement grinding circuit process improvements at Karara Mine has been awarded the 2018 CEEC Medal.The winning team – Sam Palaniandy, Matthew Spagnolo, Rinto Napitupulu Halomoan, Huiwen Zhou and Hidemasa Ishikawa – shared its work ‘Fine grinding circuit process improvement at the Karara Mine concentrator’ at the 2017 MetPlant Conference in Australia.CEEC Medal Evaluation Committee Chair Dr Zeljka Pokrajcic said the CEEC Medal celebrated and recognised outstanding published research and field work on strategies for energy-efficient comminution. She said the winners documented a collaboration between Karara Mining Limited and METS company Nippon Eirich, sharing a well-planned and well-written operational improvement.Site staff at Karara Mine, located in the mid-west region of Western Australia, faced the challenge of needing to exceed plant throughput in addition to tackling increases in ore hardness.Zeljka said the authors documented how they converted the TowerMills to bottom feed for improved grinding efficiency, allowing increased throughput at high ore hardness.“With a systematic approach to identifying and implementing circuit changes around the TowerMill and hydrocyclone installation, the team solved the site’s challenge and achieved significant energy and productivity gains, up to 50 percent reduction in specific energy of the fine grinding circuit,” she said.“The team demonstrated the value of operational optimisation and showed a methodical approach to improving energy and process efficiency. They showed how operational improvements in part of the circuit can reduce overall comminution energy use. They also demonstrated that big improvements can be successfully incorporated into existing mines with live production needs.”Zeljka said although no CEEC Medal was awarded in the technical research category, the standard of entries overall was high, with exciting research advances nominated from around the globe. A broad range of topics included advanced simulation and modelling techniques, novel approaches to microwave pre-treatment of plant feed, and use of different types and shapes of grinding media.The CEEC Board congratulates the medal winners for publishing an excellent and practical contribution to the industry. CEEC Chief Executive Alison Keogh said by supporting the authors to share their learnings, Karara Mining was demonstrating leadership to the global mining industry.“Karara Mining’s willingness to share how it solved site problems through this collaboration with Nippon Eirich shows its joint commitment to our industry’s improvement, innovation and partnerships. CEEC commends this leadership, which highlights how collaboration and systematic approaches can provide real solutions to help address pressing industry challenges,” she said.last_img read more

Google ordered to block photos of Max Mosley at orgy

first_imgA GERMAN COURT has ruled that Google must block photos of a sadomasochistic orgy involving former Formula One boss Max Mosley, two months after a similar ruling in France.The court said the six images taken from a video of the orgy that was filmed by Britain’s now defunct News of the World tabloid newspaper seriously breached Mosley’s privacy.Google immediately said it would appeal the German court’s decision, saying it sent a “disturbing message”.The US technology firm must prevent the pictures being shown on its German-based google.de site, including via links on its search engine, the court in the northern city of Hamburg ruled today.“In the court’s view, the pictures offered seriously violate the plaintiff’s privacy,” said chief judge Simone Kaefer.A court statement on the judgement noted that the serious infringement was due to the photos showing Mosley performing sexual acts, stating:In this particular case it’s therefore not conceivable that the pictures could be allowed to be published in any context.If Google continues to allow the pictures to be seen, it faces a fine of up to €250,000 per individual case, according to the ruling.Legal battlesThe defence team representing Mosley welcomed the verdict, which, it said in a statement, “finally creates legal certainty in a blatant case of privacy rights violations”.German DPA news agency quoted his lawyer Tanja Irion as describing it as a “milestone for the protection of privacy rights on the internet” and denying it would lead to online censorship.The ruling is the latest in a string of legal battles waged by 73-year-old Mosley related to the publication of the video and a 2008 article published by the Rupert Murdoch-owned British newspaper alleging it was a Nazi-themed orgy.Mosley successfully took the publisher of the News of the World to court over the Nazi claim, winning £60,000 (€73,000 euros) in damages when the judge ruled there was no Nazi element.In November a French court also ordered Google to prevent its search engine from providing links to nine images of the orgy, prompting the US internet giant to similarly announce it would appeal and argue it raised fears over costly and heavy-handed automated censorship of the internet.‘Disturbing message’“Even if it refers to an individual person and specific content, today’s verdict nevertheless sends a disturbing message,” Google said in a statement today.“It could lead to internet service providers being obligated to monitor even the smallest elements of content which they transmit or save for their users,” it said.“In our opinion this violates European law,” it added.After Mosley won his case in the British court, he then, in 2011, took his fight to France which has some of the world’s toughest privacy laws.A French court fined NoW’s owner, Murdoch’s News Group Newspapers, €10,000 after ruling that Mosley’s right to privacy had been infringed by the publication of the images in editions of the newspaper sold in France.Those rulings however failed to stop images from the orgy being widely circulated on the web and Mosley believes search engines have a duty to prevent users from accessing material deemed to have breached the law.Mosley, whose father Oswald Mosley led a British fascist party in the 1930s, headed FIA, the governing body of world motorsport, for 16 years until 2009.- © AFP, 2014Read: Google Glass app allows you to see what your partner sees during sex > Read: “They have no human feeling at all”: Max Mosley speaks at Leveson inquiry >last_img read more

Missing MH370 was highly highly likely on autopilot when it ran out

first_imgMISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES flight MH370 was “highly, highly likely” on autopilot when it ran out of fuel and crashed, Australian officials said today as they announced the search will shift further south.“It would be fair to comment that it is highly, highly likely that the aircraft was on autopilot, otherwise it could not have followed the orderly path that has been identified through the satellite sightings,” Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said.After analysing data between the plane and a satellite, officials believe Flight 370 was operating on autopilot the entire time it was flying across a vast expanse of the southern Indian Ocean, Australian Transport Safety Bureau chief commissioner Martin Dolan said.“Certainly for its path across the Indian Ocean, we are confident that the aircraft was operating on autopilot until it ran out of fuel,” Dolan told reporters in Canberra.Asked whether the autopilot would have to be manually switched on, or whether it could have been activated automatically under a default setting, Dolan replied:The basic assumption would be that if the autopilot is operational it’s because it’s been switched on.But exactly when the Boeing 777 began running on autopilot is still not known.“We couldn’t accurately, nor have we attempted to, fix the moment when it was put on autopilot,” Transport Minister Warren Truss said.It will be a matter for the Malaysian-based investigation to look at precisely when it may have been put on autopilot.New search areaThe latest nugget of information from the investigation into Flight 370 came as officials announced yet another change in the search area for the wreckage of the plane that vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew on board.The new search area is located several hundred kilometres southwest of the most recent suspected crash site, about 1,800 kilometres off Australia’s west coast, Dolan said.Powerful sonar equipment will scour the seabed for wreckage in the new search zone, which officials calculated by reanalysing the existing satellite data.The shift was expected, with Dolan saying last week the new zone would be south of an area where a remote-controlled underwater drone spent weeks fruitlessly combing 850 square kilometres of seabed.The shift from debris to underwaterThat search area was determined by a series of underwater sounds initially thought to have come from the plane’s black boxes. But those signals are now widely believed to have come from some other source.The new 60,000 square kilometre search area falls within a vast expanse of ocean that air crews have already scoured for floating debris, to no avail. Officials have since called off the air search, since any debris would likely have sunk long ago.The hunt is now focused underwater. Beginning in August, private contractors will use powerful side-scan sonar equipment capable of probing ocean depths of 7 kilometres to comb the ocean floor in the new search zone. The job is expected to take 12 months to complete.Meanwhile, two survey ships are mapping uncharted expanses of seabed in the search zone before the sonar scanning starts.The search area has changed multiple times in the months since Flight 370 vanished, as officials struggled to make sense of the limited data the flight left in its wake after it dropped off radar. The new search zone was largely identified by an analysis of hourly transmissions, or “handshakes,” between the plane and a satellite.Read: Underwater search for MH370 to move again – this time west of Perth > Read: MH370 searchers not looking in crash hotspot as they were distracted by ‘bogus signals’ > Read: Flight MH370 families get $50,000 each in first compensation payouts >last_img read more

Inslee to pardon misdemeanor marijuana convictions

first_imgSEATTLE — More than six years after the state legalized the adult use of marijuana, Gov. Jay Inslee said Friday he plans to pardon thousands of people convicted of small-time possession charges — the latest in a series of moves by states and cities to ease the burdens people face from having minor criminal records for using pot.The Democrat, who is mulling a 2020 presidential run, made the announcement at a cannabis industry summit in SeaTac. Inslee said he was creating an expedited process that would allow about 3,500 people to apply for and receive a pardon without having to hire a lawyer or go to court.“We have people who have this burden on their shoulders from a simple, one-time marijuana possession from maybe 20 years ago, and that’s impeding the ability of people to live their lives,” Inslee said in an interview. “It can damage their ability to get financing for a home; it can damage their ability to get financing for colleges, even simple things like going on a field trip with your kids.“We should not be punishing people for something that is no longer illegal,” he said.Several states allow for expunging or sealing marijuana convictions, but obtaining such relief has typically been onerous, requiring a lawyer or court appearances. As more states have eased marijuana laws or followed the lead of Washington and Colorado in legalizing recreational pot use since 2012, some cities, counties and states have simplified the process of clearing convictions.Seattle, San Francisco, Denver and some local prosecutors in New York City, where marijuana remains illegal, are clearing old marijuana convictions en masse, and a new law in California requires prosecutors to erase or reduce an estimated 220,000 pot convictions.last_img read more

British Airways gives staff allotment

first_imgBritish Airways has offered employees allotment plots at its headquarters near Heathrow Airport to help improve their general health and wellbeing.The allotment is being offered to staff to coincide with National Allotment Week, which runs from 10-16 August 2015.The allotment keepers also have a social network on which they can share recipes for the fruit and vegetables they produce, offer advice on growth strategies and even organise allotment events such as Harvest Festival.Paul Jarvis, museum curator at British Airways, said: “It’s all too easy for office-based workers to not step foot outside all day. Our workplace allotment not only gives staff the opportunity to grow healthy produce, but they also get exercise, fresh air and a space to meet new people in their spare time.”Fiona Lamond, wellbeing consultant at British Airways, added:  “The allotment is a great place to come during lunch breaks to get some sunshine and meet new friends.”last_img read more

An alloptical neural network on a single chip

first_imgA team of researchers from the University of Münster, the University of Oxford and the University of Exeter has built an all-optical neural network on a single chip. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes their chip, which has no optical-to-electronic conversions, and how well it worked. Geoffrey Burr with IBM Research – Almaden has published a News and Views piece discussing the work by the team in the same journal issue. More information: J. Feldmann et al. All-optical spiking neurosynaptic networks with self-learning capabilities, Nature (2019). DOI: 10.1038/s41586-019-1157-8Press release Modern computers run on electricity—it powers devices and serves as a storage and data medium. But for several decades, scientists have wondered if it might be possible to use light as the data medium—crunching photons instead of electrons. Engineers have many hurdles in attempting to create such a device, however, most prominently the bottlenecks that arise when converting between optical and electrical systems. In more recent times, there has been a renewed interest in building an optically based computer—but now, the focus is energy conservation. Big modern computers used for heavy-duty applications require a lot of electricity. Logic suggests that computers based on light should be less energy intensive, most particularly because they would not generate as much heat, making cooling systems obsolete. In this new effort, the researchers have taken a step toward the creation of optically based computers by building an all-optical neural network on a single chip.The researchers noted that one type of computer system seemed most amenable to optics—deep neural networks. This is because such networks rely on artificial neurons with synaptic connections that can be weighted based on past learning experiences. They noted also that crystalline phase change materials could also serve such a purpose. They are materials that experience a change in structure when heated—in this case, by a laser. Using such a material, the team built a chip with four neurons connected with 60 synapses using waveguides to control the flow of information represented by light. Testing showed the chip was capable of learning, recognizing patterns and performing computations.

LISTEN Drew Stanton Cardinals quarterback

first_imgLISTEN: Drew Stanton, Cardinals quarterback Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires When Drew Stanton signed with the Arizona Cardinals in March 2013, he walked into a situation where it looked like he would be the team’s starting quarterback. Just a few weeks later, though, the team traded for Carson Palmer, sending Stanton back to the bench.The veteran remained there the entirety of his first season with the team, and things were not expected to change in his second.However, Palmer was sidelined due to various injuries, leading to Stanton not only playing for the first time in four seasons, but playing a lot. In all, Stanton appeared in nine games — starting eight — completing 55 percent of his passes for 1,711 yards and seven touchdowns with five interceptions. The Cardinals were 6-3 in games he played, and 5-3 in games he started.He showed he could be a starter, even if there are no designs for that to be the case in Arizona.Set to enter the final season of his contract, Stanton told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Wednesday he would be open to returning to Arizona, even in a backup role.“Of course,” he said. “Talking with my agent, I’ve had many talks with him about it. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. When you find a good organization that you really like, there’s something to be said for that.”Stanton, 31, mentioned that when a player starts chasing starting jobs there’s a chance things don’t end up working out too well.“You find yourself in some difficult situations when there aren’t good pieces around you,” he said. “There’s amazing pieces here in place.”With that in mind Stanton, who has appeared in 21 career games and thrown 12 touchdown passes, said every year is unique and he takes things one season at a time. Top Stories “I went four years without touching the field and then last year I was fortunate to play a little bit and try to help this team win football games, and it felt great to be able to do that,” he said. “But at the same time, you balance all those things and you weigh all those options.“And my family will play into that as well, my son’s getting older, all of those things.”So while the allure to be a starter may still exist, it will not be the determining factor on where Stanton goes when his contract expires.Because while he would like to be be a team’s number one quarterback instead of a backup, Stanton understands a move like that does not always work out for the best.“I think it is all based on the situation you find yourself in,” he said, noting that sometimes a team just needs a quarterback while other times the organization has undergone a complete makeover. “So I think you can evaluate everything in that sense, but at the same time this is a pretty good situation here.“There’s a lot of familiarity with me and this is a place that has really opened up a lot of doors for me, and I will take all that into consideration.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Maybe the Arizona Cardinals playoff hopes are bar

first_img Maybe the Arizona Cardinals’ playoff hopes are barely flickering. No doubt the team hasn’t played up to expectations.The Cardinals, a popular Super Bowl contender to start 2016, are 4-5-1 with the math of making a playoff run not in their favor. On a national level, the reaction has pinned much of the blame on quarterback Carson Palmer, who on Sunday completed 20-of-38 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Nevermind that he was pressured more than any quarterback has been to this point in the NFL season.Fair or not, Palmer’s dwindling career has been the easy-to-run-with storyline on the Monday after Week 11’s 30-24 Arizona loss to the Minnesota Vikings.Palmer has completed 62 percent of his passes this year, which is 1.1 percent below his career average, and 7.16 yards per attempt, 0.18 below his career average. He’s thrown 13 touchdowns to 10 interceptions.Here’s a collection of opinions near and far that focus on Palmer as a talking point when discussing the Cardinals’ disappointing season.— Carson Palmer is not a quarterback you can win a title with (NFL.com)“Palmer has always been my one “yeah, but …” with Arizona. Heck, I argued for Drew Stanton a few years ago. While the Cards’ discouraging campaign isn’t all on Palmer, it’s clear that he’s not a championship quarterback. That’s been proven in playoff games. And this year, he looks done.” — Adam Schein— NFL Winners and Losers: With Carson Palmer fading, Cardinals’ championship dreams are done (Yahoo Sports) — Pressure, misses, and miscues blight Palmer’s day (Pro Football Focus)“Carson Palmer was strong between the numbers on his short and intermediate throws, but outside the numbers, struggled when he threw across the line of scrimmage; Palmer went 5-for-13 for 55 yards and Xavier Rhodes’ pick-six on throws outside the numbers across the line of scrimmage.” — Ben Stockwell – / 22 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Carson Palmer is grabbed by Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen in the Arizona Cardinals’ loss on Nov. 20, 2016. (Associated Press) Top Stories “Even though Arizona has talked up Drew Stanton as its next starter, it’s hard to buy that a 32-year-old with a 67.2 career rating is leading anyone to a championship. Palmer is still their best option right now (starting over at quarterback in the NFL is really tough to do), but it seems like he has passed the point in which he could lead Arizona to a Super Bowl, and his 2017 salary-cap number is $24.125 million according to Spotrac.” — Frank Schwab— NFL Insider notes: Carson Palmer’s window slams shut, Dak plays his best game (CBS Sports)“The offense is simply not good enough. Palmer is searching and hoping for big plays, but turning the ball over far too often. His pick-six on Sunday, which Xavier Rhodes returned for 100 yards, turned around the game for good and perhaps will go down as the crossroads of this season.” — Jason La Canfora — What do you think the future holds for Carson Palmer? (ESPN)“I look at this when I watched Carson Palmer yesterday, and the way I looked at his eyes and the just way the game unfolded for him, I saw a guy that to me looked like he’s about ready to hang ’em up. That’s clearly my opinion. He just took a beating … You just can’t allow your quarterback to ever take a beating like that.” — Mark Dominik Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
