UK plc pays the price as firms lose 1.5m days a year to stressOn 1 Dec 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. More than 1.5 million working days are lost to stress every year, costing UKemployers £1.24bn, a study by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) andPersonnel Today magazine has concluded. The research by Occupational Health’s sister magazine also found that morethan half of UK organisations are reporting an increase in workplace stress. The Stress in the UK Workplace study of 700 senior HR practitioners suggestedthat stress-related illness now accounted for some 11 per cent of all sicknessabsence, while nearly half the employers polled believed the culture in theirbusinesses was a prime cause of stress. In a separate study of 2,000 workers by pollster BMRB, half felt underpressure to work long hours, with 42 per cent worrying about their job afterhours. A total of 40 per cent felt unable to report concerns over excessivepressure, 19 per cent dreaded going into work, a quarter admitted to worries overwork affecting their sleep and a third said they felt overwhelmed by theirworkload. Intriguingly, the public sector appeared to have a much firmer grasp on themanagement of workplace stress, with 75 per cent of firms providing guidance,compared with just 48 per cent of private sector organisations. With the problem of workplace stress showing no sign of disappearing, theHSE has taken a major step forward in its plans to tackle the issue, which willinclude next year’s launch of management standards. It has developed a practical guidance pack for employers and employees todevelop solutions. The guidance, Real solutions, real people – a managers’ guide to tacklingwork-related stress, has examples of practical measures that, said the HSE,could provide a starting point for the workforce to agree how to tackle thefindings of a stress risk assessment. Bill Callaghan, chairman of the Health and Safety Commission, said:”Real solutions, real people provides a tool to help managers and staffdevelop solutions to tackle work-related stress that are specifically relevantto their organisation. It then encourages them to tailor their energy to theparticular needs identified by risk assessment.” Progress is being made on the management standards, too. The standards arecurrently being piloted by 25 organisations and, according to the HSE, thatprocess is now being evaluated. The next step will be to revise and develop the standards before they areput to further public consultation next spring. The publication is available from the HSE, tel 01787 881165, or online at www.hsebooks.co.ukStress: just an excuse for time off work?Most HR professionals believe employees use stress as an excuse to take timeoff work.According to the joint research by Personnel Today magazine andthe HSE, the majority of HR professionals had serious reservations about thenumber of genuine sick days attributed to stress.A total of 51 per cent of employers believed that just half ofall days lost to stress-related sickness absence were genuine. And 68 per centwere afraid to raise its profile in case it encouraged greater reporting ofstress-related absence.
For the first time The Negotiator held a Conference & Expo on the same day – and at the same venue, The Hilton on Park Lane – as the ever popular Negotiator Awards. The Conference was sponsored by GMG Property Services Group, Homelet, Reapit and Fully Furnished and supported by ARLA, NAEA and NAVA.More than 30 service providers had stands on the day – with all possible needs catered for, from software to corporate magazines and window displays to furniture providers.Whilst the conference was packed with interesting speakers such as Jones Lang LaSalle’s Head of Research John Neale, presenter Kate Faulkner, ARLA President Jane Ingram, and Guy Charrison, President, NAVA; the programme allowed for plenty of time to visit the exhibitors.We were delighted with the response to our stand and have several new partners as a direct result of the day!” Toby Limbrick Network AuctionsThe Expo gave delegates the opportunity to meet new and old faces and see people they may have only ever have chatted to on the phone. As Harry Simons, Partner, MPL Interiors said of his company’s experience of the Expo, “It was a productive day and provided a great chance for MPL to meet new clients and catch up with many existing ones. Many thanks to the Negotiator team for organising a very well-run and successful Conference.”For both delegates and exhibitors it went beyond networking to actually sealing deals.Toby Limbrick’s company Network Auctions also took a stand, he said, “We were delighted with the response to our trade stand at the Negotiator Conference. We were busy with enquiries from 8.30am until the close and the calibre of attendees was impressive, I’m pleased to say we have several new partners as a direct result of the day!”Susie Jones, Development & Relationship Co-ordinator, Lets with Pets commented, “Our stand was busy all day, the level of interest was such that there were even delegates coming to speak to me whilst seminars were running. I made some very good links and we have already seen results from a number of the enquiries made about the scheme on the day.”For those who couldn’t make the event, here is a listing of exhibitors.Speaker presentations are also available to download at www.thenegotiator.co.uk on the Conference tab; they’ll make more sense to those who attended, missing as they obviously do, the dynamic presentation of the speakers themselves – but they give a flavour and no doubt will reinforce a sound decision to come to the Conference next year if you missed it.

Four new training providers have joined the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink Manufacturing, taking the number in the network to 32.The College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (Cafre) has become the first organisation to be accredited as part of the NSA in Northern Ireland, and will lead the development of a training network dedicated to the needs of the province’s food and drink industry.Bishop Burton College near Beverley, Yorkshire, and Derby College have also joined the NSA’s food and drink processing networks. Newcastle University has become the second member of the leadership and management network. Meanwhile, Sheffield Hallam University has extended its involvement with the NSA network by taking on an additional role to become champion of a network specialising in food innovation.NSA director Justine Fosh said the NSA has now published a directory listing all the training courses available from its members. It can be downloaded from the NSA for Food and Drink Manufacturing website at foodanddrink.nsacademy.co.uk.The NSA steering for bakery – made up of representatives from the baking industry including craft, plant and supermarket businesses as well as trade associations – is currently developing vocational qualifications and ways of delivering skills via a network of training providers, and guided by sector skills council Improve. It is due to announce further details of a pilot foundation bakery training scheme in the coming months.
Reporting the abuseAccording to 2019 correspondence between Fuller’s lawyer, Richard Serbin, and Notre Dame general counsel Marianne Corr, Fuller kept in contact with the University for at least a year after reporting the abuse in 2002.During that time, University records indicate Fuller corresponded with former Notre Dame general counsel Carol Kaesebier and Fr. Richard Warner, then chief adviser to University President Emeritus Fr. Edward A. Malloy. Fuller does not have records of his correspondence with Warner and Kaesebier from the early 2000s.According to University records, Fuller met with Notre Dame in April of 2003. His sister Paula Mason and a close friend, Carol Smola, came along for support.Kaesebier, Warner and other top University administrators attended on behalf of Notre Dame. Kaesebier was part of a three-person committee Malloy founded that year to work with survivors of abuse by Notre Dame clergy.Fuller hoped his meeting with the University would help him heal. He said he asked the University to help pay for him to receive an additional degree, as he felt Notre Dame had not given him the education he had paid for.“‘You put me through some more school, help me get a degree in counseling or be a therapist, and I’ll go help people like me,’” he said. “That’s exactly what I said.”Both Smola and Mason confirmed Fuller asked the University for help with education costs at the meeting. However, the University did not fulfill his request. In an email, Kaesebier said she did not recall enough about her correspondence with Fuller or the events of the meeting to comment. Malloy said he did not remember Fuller, and Warner did not respond to multiple interview requests.In reaching out to the University for comment, Observer reporters also asked University spokesperson Dennis Brown to confirm whether Fuller asked for help with educational costs or made any other requests during the meeting. The University declined to comment.According to University records, Fuller did not stay in contact with Notre Dame after the meeting.In an Associated Press article from March 2003, the University offered a public apology to Fuller for a priest who “had sexual contact with him” while he was a student there. “We feel very bad about this,” Fr. Richard Warner, at the time director of Campus Ministry and counselor to Malloy, said in the article. “We feel even worse because … he’s lived with it quietly for all those years and has had to seek out counseling. It wasn’t brought to our attention until almost a year ago.”The article does not identify Presley as the priest in question.Fuller said he was disappointed by the apology and feels the University has yet to take full responsibility for Presley. Courtesy of Mark Fuller. A photo of Mark Fuller from a few years ago.Fuller rediscovered his lawyer’s correspondence with Notre Dame general counsel Marianne Corr from 2019 during an interview with The Observer. In the correspondence, Corr said she would be open to continue working with Fuller. He reached out to Corr in May, and the two have been in conversation.At the beginning of Lent, a volunteer came to Fuller’s work offering to place ashes on people’s foreheads. Though his relationship with the church has been damaged, he decided to take ashes that day.“I didn’t lose all my faith,” Fuller said. “Still pray.”It takes time to process trauma, Fuller said, and he’d like to see more survivors have access to professional therapy.“There’s a progression; you can’t push yourself,” Fuller said. “You can’t rush too much, you can just get hurt again in a way, in weird ways.” And, he added, if he could talk to a young survivor, he’d like to offer them hope.“I would want that person to know — to be encouraged — that it sometimes gets dark or hard,” Fuller said.He paused.“And then it gets lighter.”Tags: Catholic Church abuse crisis, Diocese of Erie, Fr. William Presley, Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, University of Notre Dame Mary Steurer | The Observer Fr. William Presley was rector of St. Edward’s Hall, featured above. Fuller says Presley abused him in the men’s residence hall. Addressing the pastIn February 2019, the Diocese of Erie launched a survivor compensation fund. Fuller hired a lawyer and filed a claim, settling later that year. A third of Fuller’s settlement went to his lawyer, and another third went to taxes, he said. “It was by no means — originally or the part [of the sum] that I netted — enough for the medications, the therapy, the missed wages, the pain and suffering, nowhere even close,” Fuller said. “I can’t even do the math.”Fuller did not disclose the amount of the settlement. The diocese had also previously offered Fuller money for counseling, but it was only enough to cover about six sessions, he told media outlets during a demonstration in Pittsburgh led by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), an international advocacy group of which Fuller is a member.However, Fuller did credit then-Bishop Donald Walter Trautman of Erie, Pennsylvania, for believing him when he reported Presley.According to news outlet goerie.com, in December, the compensation fund had paid a total of $5.9 million to 50 survivors, making the average settlement $118,000. Sums have ranged from $5,000 to $400,000.“Establishing a fund, handled completely independently by a third party, allowed us to publicly acknowledge the crimes of the past and the damage that was done,” Welsh said in a statement to The Observer. “It also gave us a way to offer some measure of justice to victims.”The diocese also offered to connect survivors with pro bono lawyers unaffiliated with the diocese’s law firm to help them through the process.Fuller’s lawyer, Richard Serbin, has represented over 400 child sex abuse survivors over the span of more than three decades. Serbin said in that time, he has seen a change in the Catholic Church’s approach to addressing sexual abuse.“In the early years when I was doing this, it was all hardball legal tactics, very aggressive tactics to fight these lawsuits,” he said.Since the early 2000s, the Catholic Church has made strides in addressing the sexual abuse crisis. However, the absence of greater regulation means there is still little consensus on what qualifies as adequate response and prevention, advocates said.Terry McKiernan, co-founder of the clergy abuse watchdog group called Bishop Accountability, said Catholic organizations should ensure comprehensive information about their abuse history is publicly available. This could include what the organization has done or is planning to do to address abuse, as well as a public apology to survivors, he said.“The message should absolutely be that the person at the top is willing to sit down with anyone who has been harmed,” he said.Former FBI executive assistant director Kathleen McChesney, who helped spearhead the creation of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office of Child and Youth Protection in the early 2000s, recommended Catholic institutions strengthen their abuse prevention with regular background screening, increased supervision and timely response to boundary violations. “You want to do everything you can to identify who’s an abuser,” she said.The University should do more to educate students about the dangers of clergy abuse, Fuller said. He suggested inviting survivors like him or other professionals in the field of abuse prevention to come speak to Notre Dame freshmen.“Be warned,” he said. “Be aware.” ‘The color all went out of my life’Fuller and Presley stayed in contact for the remainder of Presley’s time at Notre Dame.Over the course of Fuller’s sophomore and junior years, Presley took him on trips around the country.In New York, Presley took Fuller to his first pornographic film, as well as to the Rainbow Room, a famous lounge in Manhattan.“I can’t even walk by that building without feeling sick to my stomach,” Fuller said.Fuller said during these trips, Presley often tried to initiate unwanted sexual contact with him.“He would touch me or touch my back, touch my arm, touch a leg,” he said.Presley also took Fuller to a ranch on the west coast. While there, Fuller said, Presley hired women sex workers for them.“I was so terrified and so disgusted … and just frozen. I couldn’t wait to get out of there,” Fuller said.He bought Fuller a stereo, speakers and a turntable. Disgusted by the gifts, Fuller gave them to his cousin as soon as he left college.“I think he was buying my silence,” Fuller said. Grooming victims and convincing them the abuse is a form of counseling or education is one way offenders can hold their victims psychologically hostage, convincing them to stay in an abusive situation, said Carlos Cuevas, a clinical psychologist and professor at Northeastern University. He declined to speak to the specifics of Fuller’s case but discussed the general dynamics and effects of sexual abuse.“Those are things that may not be physically keeping the individual from leaving, but certainly psychologically are making sure the offender can continue to have access to them,” Cuevas said. Sophomore year, when the abuse started, Fuller’s grades plummeted.Fuller’s friendships from freshman year also faded, and he withdrew from his extracurriculars. He wanted to drop out of school, but his father asked him to stay. “The color all went out of my life, you know, out of that campus,” he said. “It was no longer so beautiful to me.”Presley left Notre Dame in 1976, Fuller’s junior year. ‘There’s a progression; you can’t push yourself’As Fuller, now 65, nears retirement, he hopes to buy a small home, perhaps a townhouse. In his ideal world, Fuller would retire by a lake and perhaps find a significant other.“I know what I think and feel,” Fuller said. “I’m aware. And that is good for communicating.”Smola described Mark as “incredibly courageous” and “resilient” as she’s watched him heal throughout the years.“All of those talents and abilities … that he’s had, he’s needed to use those to process through and keep going and accomplish all that he has,” she said.Throughout it all, he’s relied on family and friends, especially his sister.“We’re best friends today,” Mason said.Besides SNAP, Fuller is also a member of AlAnon, a recovery group for friends and family members of alcoholics. Daniel Wilson, one of Fuller’s friends from AlAnon, said he has also seen Fuller become increasingly open to sharing his story with others in the roughly 12 years they’ve known each other.“In our circle of friends in recovery, there are a lot of people who have suffered sexual abuse, both men and women, both straight and gay, and I think his experiences have helped people who have a different profile,” Wilson said. Mark Fuller, class of 1977, came forward with his experience of priest abuse in 2002. Notre Dame offered little more than an apology.Editor’s note: This story includes descriptions of sexual abuse and violence. A list of sexual assault reporting options and on-campus resources can be found on the Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross websites.Diane Park The first two times Mark Fuller visited Fr. William Presley, then rector of St. Edward’s Hall, they just talked. It was 1974, and Fuller vividly remembers sitting in an orange lounge chair in the front of Presley’s rectory while the priest asked him questions about his classes, his family and his personal life. Fuller remembers Presley offering him a soda.Then, in their third or fourth meeting, Fuller said, things changed. Presley told Fuller to wait while he went into the bedroom. When Presley called him in, he was in bed under the covers. He told Fuller to disrobe.Fuller said this was the first time Presley raped him.“He would go get a washcloth — ‘This is what you do. This is what you do with your partner,’” recalled Fuller, 65. “He was telling me how sex worked.” Presley raped him two more times during his sophomore year, Fuller said.Investigators say Presley victimized many people over the course of his career. According to a 2018 report by a grand jury that investigated sex abuse allegations against the clergy in Pennsylvania, where Presley also worked, at least five have credibly accused him of abuse. The report, which cited records from the Diocese of Erie, said Presley was known to have abused people through “‘choking, slapping, punching, rape, sodomy, fellatio, anal intercourse’ and other acts.”“It’s some kind of a soul murder, you know,” said Fuller, who graduated from the University in 1977. “It really is. It damages something so important that you can’t see.”Since the grand jury report was made public in August 2018, Notre Dame has developed several initiatives addressing the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse crisis. The University commissioned two task forces, one to facilitate dialogue on campus, another to assess research opportunities. It pledged up to $1 million to fund research on clergy abuse. The University even hosted its 2019 Notre Dame Forum on the subject.However, there has been little public discussion of Notre Dame’s own history with abusive clergy in recent years, and its own record with priest abuse remains murky. A 2003 report from the South Bend Tribune said at the time Notre Dame was aware of allegations against four priests. It is unclear if Presley, who was later defrocked and died in 2012, was one of them. Survivors like Fuller question whether the University has offered a full accounting of the cases involving clergy at Notre Dame. And, with little more than an apology decades after the alleged abuse, some, like Fuller, are left with a sense of unfinished business — which they say reflects a larger failure by the University to address the harm students suffered at the hands of its priests.The Observer asked Notre Dame how its strategies for abuse response and prevention have changed since the ’70s, particularly in light of the abuse crisis. The University did not respond and did not answer a question about how many priests working at Notre Dame had been accused of abusing a community member during their tenure.In the Presley case, Fuller reported the abuse to Notre Dame in 2002. In a statement to The Observer, vice president for public affairs and communications Paul Browne linked to an Associated Press article from 2003, where the University offered an apology to Fuller.“While we had no contemporaneous reports on file from that period, Notre Dame in 2002 reported the allegations against Presley to the Erie, Pennsylvania, diocese,” Browne said in a statement to The Observer. “The University publicly apologized to the student in 2003.”The University’s apology did little to assuage the pain Fuller has felt for nearly half a century, he said. For almost 30 years, he had refused to report Presley’s behavior to Notre Dame — largely, he said, because of a mix of fear and shame.In a series of interviews with The Observer over the past five months, Fuller shared his account of how the abuse he endured shaped his life, his faith and his perception of the university he once called home. He did so, he said, in the hopes that other survivors of clergy abuse — both at Notre Dame and elsewhere — might find the courage to share their stories. And he said he also hopes that his story might compel the University to reckon more fully with the sins of the priests from its past. Courtesy of Mark Fuller Mark Fuller’s high school senior portrait.Grooming and abuseIn the fall of his sophomore year, Fuller and his roommate were invited to a football game watch party with Presley in St. Edward’s Hall. Presley was friendly, Fuller recalled of their first meeting. There were about a dozen students crammed into the rectory watching the game. Returning for his second or third game watch, Fuller said he decided to stay behind to talk to Presley. Fuller disclosed that he was gay, and he wanted to try conversion therapy to see if he could turn himself straight. “My church, my family, everything, everybody said that I was bad,” Fuller said.Presley was quick to offer help. He told Mark he would be his counselor.Fuller left the rectory that day feeling relieved. He had been praying to find someone to help him.“I thought God had presented this guy,” he said.Presley came to Notre Dame from the Diocese of Erie, Pennsylvania, in August of 1970, according to the grand jury report, which lists him as a “graduate and student counselor” at the time. According to The Observer archives, he was named rector of St. Edward’s Hall in September 1971. University records also indicate he was a member of hall staff in Keenan Hall. The grand jury report found that Presley’s track record of abuse began as early as 1963. The report concluded the Diocese of Erie knew of allegations against Presley by at least 1987.“Not speaking specifically about this case, every allegation that we had on file has been reported to civil authorities, whether it is beyond the statute of limitations or not,” Diocese of Erie director of communications Anne-Marie Welsh said in a statement to The Observer. “We will continue to report new allegations as they are made known to us.”Presley was defrocked in 2006. He died in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 2012.

Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden on Friday criticized President Donald Trump for reducing US oversight of global health issues before the coronavirus outbreak in China, which has spread rapidly to several countries including the United States.”We have, right now, a crisis with the coronavirus,” said Biden, who is in Iowa campaigning before the Midwestern farm state holds Democrats’ first nominating contest on Monday. “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”Biden said Trump had rolled back progress on global health oversight that occurred when he was vice president from 2009 to 2017. In particular, he cited “draconian cuts” the White House proposed to the budgets of “the very agencies that we need to fight this outbreak,” including the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).Matt Wolking, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, responded that Biden had made “foolish comments” as vice president in 2009 about avoiding airplanes during a swine flu crisis and “caused a public panic.””In contrast, President Trump is listening to medical and scientific experts and taking every responsible precaution to protect the American people,” he said.The Trump administration declared a public health emergency on Friday and blocked foreign nationals who have traveled to China from entering the country. They also planned to impose a two-week quarantine on US citizens who have traveled within the past two weeks to China’s Hubei Province, the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic.Still, officials insisted the risk to Americans from the flu-like illness is low. The outbreak has claimed more than 250 lives. None of the US cases have been fatal, and all but one of the patients contracted coronavirus while they were traveling in China.Topics :
“The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” he said in the interview released late Friday, referring to the US media tycoon who jumped into the Democratic presidential nomination race in November.Bloomberg, 78, is the former mayor of New York, meaning the two men have a sliver of political experience in common.While Eastwood is best known for his Hollywood career — starring in popular westerns and as the rogue cop “Dirty Harry” Callahan, and directing “Unforgiven,” “Gran Torino” and last year’s “Richard Jewell” — he also served for two years as mayor of Carmel, California.He puzzled the American political establishment in 2012 when he took the stage at the Republican National Convention, where the party was nominating Mitt Romney, and struck up a conversation with an empty chair featuring an imaginary Barack Obama.Topics : Clint Eastwood, the iconic actor and director who infamously delivered a speech to an empty chair at the 2012 Republican convention, is endorsing Michael Bloomberg for president and not Donald Trump, whom he supported four years ago.In a wide-ranging interview, the 89-year-old multiple Oscar winner told The Wall Street Journal that while he appreciates some of the good that Trump has done, he laments the bad and the ugly nature of today’s “ornery” politics in America.Trump should act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names,” said Eastwood, who endorsed the brash billionaire over Hillary Clinton in 2016 because, as he said at the time, he feared she would “follow in (president Barack) Obama’s footsteps.”

The Siemens Benefits Scheme has completed a £530m (€578m) buy-in transaction with Legal & General, securing the benefits of more than 2,000 UK retirees.The deal is the pension fund’s second such pension risk transfer transaction, but the first with Legal & General.The insurer, which announced the deal today, said the pension scheme had chosen an umbrella contract to allow for potential future transactions to be completed quickly and easily, when the time and market conditions are right.It also said the trustees ran an agile and flexible process, which allowed them to take advantage of favourable pricing opportunities in the market, and to move quickly to meet their objectives. Joanna Matthews, chair of the trustees, said: “Through careful planning, we were able to overcome the logistical and investment challenges posed by COVID-19 and complete this transaction at this time on very favourable terms. This is a fantastic outcome and I would like to thank all involved in the process.”The trustees were advised on the transaction by Aon and Sackers. Legal advice was provided to Legal & General by Eversheds.Karen Gainsford, principal consultant at Aon, said the scheme’s “nimble governance” was key to the firm having been able to secure attractive terms “so efficiently”.“It’s a great example of what will be needed throughout the remainder of 2020, as schemes seek to secure benefits in what is set to become a busy market once again,” she said.Legal & General has been working with the Siemens Benefits scheme for many years, and Legal & General Investment Management Limited helped to set up the liability-driven investment portfolio in 2008.Siemens’ deal is the latest in a series of bulk annuity transactions to be announced recently. Rothesay Life last week announced it had closed a £930m buy-in with Littlewoods Pensions Scheme last month, and a day later Legal & General Assurance Society disclosed a £70m buy-in with ICI Pension Fund.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.
“This assertion is remarkably erroneous, lacks objectivity and scant in factual basis. Simply, a false narrative,” Andanar said. “NTC’s (National Telecommunications Commission) cease and desist order is an independent and impartial decision.”“Let us be reminded that President Duterte has accepted the apology of ABS-CBN Corporation and this thereby undermines any assumption that the President was behind NTC’s decision,” he added.ABS-CBN’s shutdown on Tuesday evening made international headlines as rights groups, lawmakers, and the general public decried the shutdown during the coronavirus pandemic.President Duterte had repeatedly threatened to block the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise, which expired on May 4, over unaired political advertisements during the 2016 elections.Late last year, President Duterte even urged the owners of ABS-CBN to just sell the company. But the Chief Executive accepted ABS-CBN’s apology over the issue of his unaired ad last February.“This is not an issue of press freedom but an issue regarding legislative franchise. Democracy, and the free press and free speech that come with it, is very much alive in the country and effectively protected,” Andanar said.“The mandate of a broadcast franchise issuance and renewal is within the authority of the Congress, and not solely of the President, who only signs the law to be executory,” he added.“Decision regarding the legislative franchise of ABS-CBN falls within the purview and wisdom of Congress and ABS-CBN has the right to pursue any and exhaust all legal remedies it deems necessary to resolve the matter,” he further said.Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, meanwhile, said that President Duterte cannot interfere with the matter since NTC is attached to the Department of Information and Communications Technology, it is a quasi-judicial body that functions independently.“Kung ang Presidente po ay makikialam diyan sa NTC, ‘yan po ay krimen. Ito po ay paglabag doon sa code of conduct for local officials at labag din ito sa anti-graft,” he added./PN MANILA – Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on Thursday slammed international media reports that allegedly connecting ABS-CBN’s status to the President Rodrigo Duterte’s threats against the company.

Versailles, IN—DNR’s Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology (DHPA) has awarded 15 federal grants for historic preservation and archaeology in Indiana communities. The grants, totaling more than $454,000, provide a match of more than $524,000 in local and private funds, for a total projected investment of $978,441. The funds come from the National Park Service, a part of the U.S. Department of the Interior, which distributes federal funds to the states through the Historic Preservation Fund Program. Since 1974, the state has awarded more than $18 million to Indiana communities through this program. DHPA helps strengthen Indiana’s historical and cultural heritage through annual federal grants it administers to local communities and not-for-profit groups that these organizations put toward preservation projects.Grants awarded are:Evansville: The City of Evansville will receive a $9,097 matching grant to reassess the known historic resources in the Evansville Downtown Historic District and Multiple Resource Area (MRA). Both areas have a total of about 152 contributing resources. Some properties were not considered historic at the time the historic district and MRA were created, so identifying and assessing resources from 1944-1968 is also necessary. The goal is to update the 25-year-old data on historic and cultural resources in Evansville’s downtown. The result would be to convert Downtown Evansville’s MRA into a Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF) in order to meet current National Register documentation standards. Evansville: The City of Evansville will also receive a $5,213 matching grant to assist with a nomination to the National Register of Historic Places of the Hebron Meadows Historic District. The development represents a mid-century neighborhood and will be listed under the new MPDF on Post-War Housing. The subdivision was the product of Wilbur Harrell and realtor-builder Isabella Sullivan. The neighborhood became home to many upper-middle-class Jewish residents in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of them coordinated with leading architects in Evansville. The nomination, in addition to being Evansville’s first mid-century district, will also explore the role Sullivan played as one of the most active women in real estate at the time, as well as the socioeconomic context of the neighborhood as it relates to the Jewish community. The district will include approximately 100 contributing properties. For more information on both Evansville grants, contact Jim Toner at 812-435-6030.Fort Wayne: The City of Fort Wayne will receive a $3,405 matching grant to assist with a nomination to the National Register of Historic Places of the Forest Park-Driving Park Historic District. It is a streetcar suburban plat that was initiated in 1906 and extended in 1913 by the plat for Driving Park. The 1910 and 1913 additions conformed to the City Beautiful recommendation of the Robinson and Kessler plans for Fort Wayne. Both Forest Park and Driving Park were developments undertaken by Louis Cudes, who developed several other Fort Wayne neighborhoods now listed in the National Register. Houses are primarily in the American Foursquare, Craftsman, and Colonial Revival styles, with a few Gabled Ells and Gable Front examples. This a large district and will include approximately 485 contributing properties. Fort Wayne: The City of Fort Wayne will receive a $5,965 matching grant to assist with a nomination to the National Register of Historic Places of the Harrison Hill Historic District. Platted in 1915, Harrison Hill is a planned residential development by Frank Hilgeman and Albert Shaaf. The layout features a broad, landscaped boulevard; wide, curving streets designed for motor traffic; playground and park areas; paved streets and sidewalks; and both brick and iron entry markers. There is a wide variety of early 20th century styles from modest bungalows to large Colonial and Tudor Revival style homes on the boulevard. The district will include approximately 220 contributing properties. The project also includes the design and printing of a brochure on the Lakeside Historic District. The brochure will follow the design of the city’s series of publications about it’s National Register Historic Districts and will contain a history of the district, local history and architecture, a locator map, and a focus on approximately 45 featured properties. For more information on both Fort Wayne grants, contact Don Orban at 260-427-2160.Henry County: Ball State University will receive a $49,999 grant to conduct an archaeological survey of Summit Lake State Park. The park is owned by the DNR and consists of 2,680 acres, including the 800-acre Summit Lake and the 120-acre Zeigler Woods Nature Preserve. The project will conduct a Phase Ia investigation of unsurveyed areas, including a geophysical survey of two possible mounds and a shovel test pit survey of approximately 30 acres surrounding each mound (a total of about 60 acres), which is approximately 2.2% of the SLSP. The objective is to document the prehistoric and historic cultural resources, to assist the park and preserve with future resource management planning, and determine potential eligibility for the National Register. Henry County: Ball State University will receive a $49,999 grant to conduct the second phase of an archaeological survey of the Wilbur Wright Fish & Wildlife Area, which consists of 1,070 acres of Blue River Valley floodplains and associated uplands and is currently used as a fishing and hunting area. It is also the former site of the New Castle State Hospital and encompasses several major prehistoric sites, which have been investigated extensively in the past. However, portions of the Wilbur Wright FWA remain unsurveyed. This project will conduct a Phase Ia shovel test pit survey of about 52 acres of fallow agricultural land west of the Big Blue River. In 2018 about 8 acres of the field was surveyed, and artifacts recovered are indicative of sustained habitation in the area. The Fiscal Year 2019 project will complete the investigation of the area, which will help define the true nature and location of the reported site and determine potential eligibility for the National Register. For more information on both Henry County grants, contact Chris Thompson at 765-285-5328.Indianapolis: The McGowan Hall Knights of Columbus will receive $38,790 to replace the roof of McGowan Hall, which was built in 1922. The hall has served many community functions and purposes throughout its history, such as USO dances during World War II, theater and music performances, community meetings and presentations, social service and support group meetings, fundraiser events, and private rental use. The project will stabilize the worst portions of the roof: the sections over the Grand Hall mezzanine and the Grand Hall entry vestibule. For more information, contact Robert Newport at 317-476-5793. Jeffersonville: The LifeSpring Health Systems organization will receive $29,622 to rehabilitate the windows of the ca. 1870 Sarkisian House, which is used as a group home for men with mental health or substance use disorders.

The project will rehabilitate 41 windows and custom build eight storm windows for the archtop. For more information, contact Elizabeth Stafford at 812-206-1361.Lafayette: Trinity United Methodist Church will receive a $50,000 grant to stabilize and rehabilitate the exterior masonry of the 1872 building. Mortar joint erosion has threatened the stability of brick units. In addition to repointing the masonry, some brick units that are missing or damaged will need to be replaced. The church has undertaken masonry rehabilitation on the east, south, and west elevations. The HPF grant will assist specifically with the north elevation, where water infiltration is creating some damage to the interior of the building. For more information, contact Stephen Ash at 765-427-7007.Newburgh: The Town of Newburgh will receive a $34,025 grant to rehabilitate Preservation Hall, formerly known as Old Newburgh Presbyterian Church, built in 1851.

Roof leaks in the gymnasium wing threaten the structure and severe leaks where the gym roof meets the classroom building allow water into the lower level of the classroom wing where the tribe maintains its archives. By replacing the roof and halting the water infiltration, the tribe can begin to pursue other interior repairs that are needed to allow the tribe to continue to operate its food bank, emergency shelter, and tribal operations, and to finish it’s Native American museum and records archive. For more information, contact Keith Layman at 260-410-5530.Plymouth: The Marshall County Commissioners will receive $25,000 to produce an engineering study and drawings for the Marshall County Courthouse.

The project will provide an overall building assessment to include masonry, windows, and doors, and to provide specific plans for the restoration of the tower. The assessment will also examine the options for implementing a fire suppression system. For more information, contact Mike Delp at 574-930-4552.Ripley County: Ball State University will receive a grant of $49,999 to continue a Phase Ia survey of approximately 80 acres around historic homestead sites identified within Versailles State Park. A previous survey recorded 49 sites, and this project will attempt to verify the location of 21 more sites. Along with their associated historical records, these sites tell the story of the early planned settlement as well as early statehood. This targeted archaeological survey will help uncover the remains of daily home life at these sites. The park would like to use the information to develop more engaging interpretation around these resources, create a series of significance statements and primary interpretive themes, and determine potential eligibility for the National Register. For more information, contact Chris Thompson at 765-285-5328.Rensselaer: The Jasper-Newton Foundation will receive a $50,000 grant to rehabilitate 63 historic windows, replace one double-hung window, and preserve all the window frame units in the Rensselaer Carnegie Library.

Ulan-Ude: Manju Rani (48kg) ensured at least a silver for herself by qualifying for the finals in her weight category at the women’s World Boxing Championships in Ulan-Ude, Russia on Saturday.Veteran Mary Kom (51kg), on the other hand, lost her semi-final bout and thus won her first bronze and eighth medal overall at the World Championships. Jamuna Boro (54kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) also won bronze after losing their respective semi-final bouts.Out of the four medallists, two — Rani and Jamuna — were making their debut at the World Championships this year.Rani kept her distance from her Thai opponent Chuthamat Raksat, relying on her jab and countering with combinations for most of the bout. She ended up winning the bout 4-1.Jamuna, on the other hand, was outplayed by Chinese Taipei’s Huang Hsiao Wen in her semi-final. She was the shorter boxer and was moving forward in a bid to get inside Wen’s reach and land shots. The strategy didn’t work and Wen ended up taking the bout with a unanimous 5-0 decision.Lovlina’s bout against China’s Yang Liu was a much closer affair. Liu had a longer reach than her 22-year-old opponent and made it count with her jabs. Lovlina also countered well but the force with which Liu landed her punches gave her the upper hand. She won the bout 3-2.Mary lost 1-4 to Turkish second seed and European Championships and European Games gold medallist Busenaz Cakiroglu. The Indian camp sought a review of the decision but it was turned down as the International Boxing Association’s (AIBA) rules mandate that the decision has to be either 3-1 or 3-2 for the decision to be reviewed.A protest was also raised during the first round of Lovlina’s bout but the technical observer turned down the protest citing consistency of scores with the judges.Manju Rani will be up against Russian second seed Ekaterina Paltceva in the summit clash on Sunday.

New Delhi: South African skipper Faf du Plessis has introduced something new and unique to the cricketing world by employing cricket’s first ‘specialist coin tosser’ by sending in JP Duminy for the toss. This could be termed as superstition, however, Faf said that the was just having fun, especially when it was a T20 game.Du Plessis had last won a coin toss against South Africa in a Test match against Australia in March and since then he has not got a single opportunity to decide what his team would be doing first.The span since which du Plessis has not won a toss stretches to two Tests and three ODIs, where he called it wrong every time.During the time, when du Plessis was out of the side, JP Duminy had lead the team and won the toss in a one-off T20 against Sri Lanka and two ODIs against Zimbabwe.ALSO READ: Hit by #MeToo storm, BCCI CEO Johri forced to skip ICC meetingHence, du Plessis decided to send Duminy for the coin toss against Zimbabwe in the T20 match, even when the all-rounder was not selected in the playing XI.”They say the strength of a captain is to know his weaknesses, so I brought in JP Duminy as a specialist coin tosser,” du Plessis said after opting to bat in a match his side won comfortably. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. “I love what I do, important to have some fun along the way as well, especially in t20 cricket!! Might have started something here…,” du Plessis wrote later on social media.Record: du Plessis has won 39 tosses till now in his career, including the one he roped Duminy for, and lost 40.
The countdown to Euro 2016 also continues on SuperSport with high profile warm-up matches featuring a Germany in need of regaining winning momentum ahead of the June 10 – July 10 spectacle.Broadcast details includes the Botswana match against Uganda on SS4HD, SS4 and SS9E. While Guinea-Bissau and Zambia would be shown on SS9 just as Gambia’s tie against South Africa will come up on SS4HD and Côte D Ivoire will tackle Gabon with all the matches coming up tomorrow.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram It may officially be the off-season, but football continues on the World of Champions with nine 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.With the Gabon 2017 qualifiers two matches from being concluded, it’s now a matter of win or bust for former champions South Africa and Zambia. In the same predicament are Botswana, Angola and Mauritius.All five nations lie in third place in their respective groups and must win this weekend to keep alive the faint hopes of progressing to the finals as the two best overall runners-up.
The General Manager of Super Sports, Felix Awogu, has hailed the League Management Company, LMC, for giving Nigerian football fans a league to behold.In a chat with journalists in his office, Awogu said this season’s league has been one of the best in recent years.“This is the best I have seen in a long time. The league has grown; there have been more wins in the league this season than any in our history. The records are there to cross-check. Though, there have been little issues of violence but not as bad as it used to be. These are little hiccups.This is the first time Super sports have done a direct deal with the league. We have gone through third parties before now, but for the first time in the last one year, we have decided to say, ‘let’s work with the league directly, and it is paying off, and we are very happy, and we are going to continue to work in that direction,” Awogu said.Asked if he backs the idea of mid-week matches in our league considering the state of our roads in the country.“I do. First and foremost, you have to look at the fact that midweek matches, especially Friday matches which are very unique have attracted more fans to the stadia than the 4pm matches. It’s an innovation, they have to keep trying things. For the first time, the average attendance in the Nigeria league has hit 15,000. Even the EPL is just about 20,000. There is a growth pattern in the league which we should commend. It is something I will always hit my chest and say yes, I think we have delivered and added value to Nigeria.Awogu indeed frowned over none payment of players’ salaries, saying any one that cannot pay the salaries of players have no business in the league.“Even if they are owned by the government, if government cannot afford it, government should let it go. Get investors to take over. We have small teams like Ikorodu United, which pays salaries as at when due and manages its structure appropriately. They fly the team when they have to fly them to attend matches. Why can’t other teams replicate that? To us, it was an ideal team and when we see teams like Ifeanyi Uba FC, which is a privately owned team, we see El-Kanemi, which has returned to the base, flying for their games, so why can’t they replicate it?“I am of the opinion that it is time the Nigeria teams go on to the stock exchange, sit back and let investors take control. Let the fans own the teams and once they do that, there will be a strong synergy between the fans and the clubs and then the attendance will grow, merchandising will grow. Like I pointed out, is it now time that clubs start hiring a marketing team, a brand manager? For a team like Enyimba FC, two times African champions, what have they done with their brand? These are some of the things that team holistically have to look at and I think it’s is a big job for the LMC,” Awogu said.The Supersports boss craves for the best team to win the league. “We are supporters of the league; we support every team in the league. We want the best team that can represent Nigeria appropriately and possibly win in the continent. It has been a long time since Enyimba won the CAF Champions League and there’s a lot of money there. You win the CAF Champions League, you get about 2 million USD, you go for the international championship, you get about 10 million USD, it is a huge investment inflow into the Nigerian economy if we can get a team to qualify to win the championship in Africa and also go for the World Club Cup. To us, that will be massive. It’s not just about the LMC, it’s about the federation and the Ministry of Sports putting heads together and seeing how these things will work,” he advised.He also threw more light on some of the challenges Supersports is faced with when covering matches in troubled areas like the North-east.“Security is improving and for the first time in four years, three major roads were opened in Maiduguri. So, things are changing. If the roads are being opened in Maiduguri, it means our Outside Broadcasting; OB vans will be able to drive into Maiduguri. If you look at an OB van for instance, it will probably cost you about 10m dollars to acquire a standard one with high definition compliments.“Our roads are not the best in the world, but we have been all over Nigeria. We were in Kano to cover some matches and shows highlights from Maiduguri. Not that we are not there but it is not yet time to move the OB facilities. If peace returns, which we have been praying for, I think the first thing we will do is take ‘Let’s Play’ with my team to go and give the children some football, let them have something to identify with, let them find some solace, some joy, after many years of stress,” he noted.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram • Backs mid-week matchesBy Kunle Adewale
Published on November 18, 2019 at 5:21 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @CraneAndrew After defeating Maryland Eastern Shore and Albany last week, No. 17 Syracuse (3-0) rose three spots in the weekly AP Top 25 Poll. Emily Engstler had two double-doubles to lead the Orange in their second and third straight home wins to open the season.Yet in both games, SU again started slow against nonconference opponents. A one-point lead over the Hawks at the end of the first quarter only turned into nine after the next 10 minutes. But behind Digna Strautmane’s four 3-pointers in the second half, SU pulled away for a 15-point win.A similar situation unfolded just four days later. Syracuse and the Great Danes were tied at 16 after the opening quarter and SU only led by 10 at half. For the third consecutive time — the Orange were down 14 points against Ohio in their season-opener — SU pulled away in the final 20 minutes to ensure its third 3-0 start in four seasons.Syracuse next faces No. 1 Oregon (3-0) Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Carrier Dome, its toughest nonconference game of the season. The Ducks are led by seniors Ruthy Hebard (23.1 points per game) and reigning Wooden Award winner Sabrina Ionescu (12.7 points per game). As a team, the Ducks currently average 99.0 points per game. SU, by comparison, has failed to top 75 points through its three games. Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+

Then, they grabbed some candy along the way, and got their hands on some pretty sweet equipment.“They’re having a good time,”said the classroom’s teacher, Nicolle Wieschowski. “We know children love technology, getting up there and touching that gigantic touch screen – it has their engagement and excitement.”Ms. W has been teaching her students how to create their own precipitation weather maps with the help of our weatherman Elie Morrison.“Technology is so crucial to the way we track weather,” Morrison said. “We’re always using computers. We’re always using imagery that’s coming over the Internet.”One student shared her enthusiasm in an excited way.“I really liked when [Morrison] was talking about that precipitation ’cause I’m into weather!” said Jaycee Worth.These third graders have been drawing weather maps everyday so they can spot weather patterns, the same way Morrison spots a cold front leaving our area.“We can learn about it in books,” said Ms. W. “But actually meeting the person and seeing what they do with their own eyes is going to help make that a little more concrete in their minds.”Another student, Matthew Kowalski said, “I really learned a lot about the weather, what all the symbols mean. It really helps me understand weather maps.If you want to know the current temperature, then you’ll need to tune in live on WBKB for your full weather forecast.Do you have a story idea?

Kenpong Group of Companies president, Kennedy Agyapong (Kenpong) is calling on Asante Kotoko faithful to remain resolute behind the club despite its poor start of the league.Kotoko began the 2016/17 league campaign on a wrong footing, losing 0-2 to WAFA at Sogakope few weeks ago.The Sogakope results generated argument at the supporters’ front, with some calling for the head of the club’s General Manager, Opoku Nti.But the former board member of the Porcupine Warriors has said it is early yet to call for the chairman’s head.Speaking at the Kotoka International Airport on his way to Burkina Faso, he bemoaned how the supporters’ front has failed to support the club financially, yet expect so much from the club.To him, if the club’s teeming fans should contribute GH¢5 per month, it will help the club a great deal in many aspects. He said in an interview that “It is too early for the fans to call for Opoku Nti’s head, we just lost to WAFA, and I can say the tall injury list could be a factor for the loss.””When I was a board member, you hardly see the big men pay for matches. They always request for VIP tickets for free. We shouldn’t encourage that practice, VIP tickets should be sold””Elsewhere where football has developed, the big men pay for matches and that helps in the club’s income generation.””‘We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that Opoku Nti is not on his own, he operates on the instructions of the board.””He has managed to buy some of the finest players in the country so let’s be patient with him. I heard from some quarters that Opoku is not a businessman so he should be stripped of his post. They shouldn’t forget Nana hasn’t dissolved the Board yet. “It’s a club we all love but we shouldn’t pay lip service only, let’s all support and stop the unnecessary criticism, Nti is an honest man, having walked with him for sometime.”He added that:“I am told that those who come in the name of supporting the club end up placing interest on whatever money they inject to the team, I don’t think it is right, we shouldn’t milk the club we claim we love.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

She’s written books and academic papers about Black migration within America, as well as the social dynamics of segregation.“She will play a key role in implementing educational programming on race and racism for our employees and helping us focus on racial equity in our day-to-day functions,” Lakers COO and President of business operations Tim Harris said in a statement, “as well as empowering the organization to identify ways to be more active participants in affecting real change.”The Lakers and the Clippers are using Friday to honor the Juneteenth holiday, which has gained recognition from sports teams (including the Dodgers and Angels) as well as several major companies including Target, Twitter and Nike. The holiday celebrates the liberation of slaves in Texas, who were among the last to know the Civil War had ended in 1865.The Lakers announced several additional recognitions of the Juneteenth holiday, including donating iPads to through four organizations they’ve had existing partnerships with: 4WRD Progress, Watts Skills Academy, Crete Academy and Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro L.A. The donations are meant to address technological inequities experienced by children in communities of color. Lakers employees have been asked to reflect on racial history and the current state of affairs, and the team is offering reading materials and a screening of the film “John Lewis: Good Trouble.”The Clippers have called for employees to sign a petition to make Juneteenth a national holiday. On the eve of Juneteenth, a largely unofficial holiday commemorating the end of slavery in America, the Lakers announced a new official who the team hopes will help address cultural issues within their own walls.The Lakers have tasked Karida Brown, an assistant tenure-track professor of African American Studies and Sociology at UCLA, as the organization’s director of racial equity and action. The team outlined the new position in a release, saying Brown will help “enrich their knowledge on today’s most urgent topics, as well as helping to identify ways the team can be more active and efficient in creating change.”Addressing social and racial issues is being examined across the country right now – particularly in the NBA which is largely composed of Black players. Many of them, including the Lakers’ LeBron James, Avery Bradley, Danny Green, Dwight Howard and Kyle Kuzma, have been vocal about advocating for political and social reform in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.Some players are calling on the league and teams to take more active steps in facilitating those reforms, with Bradley and Howard among those applying pressure ahead of the league’s restart planned for next month.

By Brian DeakyneSeveral things have improved since Monday when Hurricane Sandy left her vicious mark in the Two River area, but one thing definitely hasn’t gotten better.As of Friday afternoon, lines at gasoline stations were still miles long, leaving some residents distraught after sitting for hours and still far to go.“I went to get gas at the Wawa in Leonardo and was waiting for four hours,” said John Sykes of Atlantic Highlands. “I was waiting in my car, and they told me the car wait was longer, so I got out of my car and stood there” with gas cans.Some residents have suggested getting gas at odd hours, such as in the middle of the night, hoping that the lines might be less crowded and the wait would be shorter.While many residents were angry about the wait, Sykes noted that some people had joined together during the hour-long wait.“Surprisingly, people were in good spirits. They had State Troopers controlling the area, so it was pretty crazy,” he said.Many gasoline stations were closed down on Friday. Some never opened after the hurricane, others ran out of gas after begin able to open shortly after roads were re-opened Wednesday and Thursday.“I got pretty lucky, actually,” said Mary Chamerblin of Little Silver. “I had to get gas on (Thursday and Friday) and I never waited longer than an hour for either one.”Like practically everyone else on the line, Chamberlin had to get gas for two different things, her car and a generator. Also like others, she said her car was running on fumes by the time she reached the pump. She got gas at the BP gasoline station in West Long Branch and the Wawa in Tinton Falls.One of the few open stations Friday afternoon was the Shell Gas Station on Shrewsbury Avenue. At one point the line stretched from the station at the corner of Newman Springs Road all the way to the Red Bank railroad station. That forced police officers to divert other traffic to side streets and direct those trying to get into the gas line.Some residents, who did not want to give their names, were angry that so few gasoline stations were open four days after the hurricane. They were also unhappy that some stations ran out of gas even through they sat in line for hours.Throughout Red Bank and sections of Middletown, traffic was snarled as many people searched for gas that will be hard to come until power is restored.The Exxon station on Shrewsbury Avenue, across the street from Shell station, was closed Friday, along with the Exxon station and BP station at the corner of Swimming River and Newman Springs roads in Middletown.“I’m surprised a lot more gas stations don’t have generators to get going,” Sykes said. “They could be making bank.”

Last Friday marked the start of a new era for Ballyshannon installed a new town clock in the south Donegal area following a huge community drive.The timing system on the clock is set to be activated by the end of this week with the second face of the clock being replaced on Friday afternoon.Following a lightning strike of their own in 2014, the old clock was damaged beyond repair, prompting a south Donegal regeneration group to take matters into their own hands. Several community fundraisers later and enough money was raised for the new clock, a project the Ballyshannon Regeneration Group have been involved with from the beginning.Cllr Barry Sweeney, who is a founding member of the group, told Donegal Daily: “It means an awful lot to the town of Ballyshannon.“People have come together and it one of those symbolic gestures to get the town clock up and running again.“It means more than just a clock, I think the people of Ballyshannon see it as a bit of a revival or regeneration. “Not only are you getting the clock ticking again, but you are also getting the town ticking again.“There was a real positive mood about it and there was a buzz about the town,” he added.“The community raised the money for this clock and they are not seeing the fruits of their labour and the fruits of the money that was put into the project.”The original clock face was built in 1878 when an agreement was struck between the planning authorities and Belfast Bank.The building was later owned by the Royal Bank before an amalgamation with the Provincial Bank resulted in the Allied Irish Bank forming there in 1966. Local businessman Eamonn McNulty, who now owns the building, purchased the property from the well-known Gallogley family earlier this year.Cllr Sweeney continued: “The building was bought about 10 months ago and the new owner, Eamonn McNulty, has helped greatly with the project.“He is doing a lot of the physical work as well, he is up and down the stairs and the ladders and he is a man of 80-years-old – his work has been great.” Picture Special: Tick-tock, tick-tock, Ballyshannon’s new clock won’t stop was last modified: November 15th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Yahoo! is going to shutter its social bookmarking service Delicious, the web learned today, and with it will sink an incredibly valuable source of collectively curated knowledge. You can easily export your own bookmarks (no verdict yet where we should all meet up to import them to) but what if you want to export other peoples’? That’s at least half the value of the service, socially curated discovery.Tonight I thought I’d go loot a little from a burning building owned by a company not interested in putting out the fire. Specifically, I went to extract the top 50 links to pages that had been tagged by users with both the words “Twitter” and “International”. Where else are you going to find a reading list of the best collected written works and other multimedia about almost any given topic? Unfortunately, automated extraction is blocked by the site and the rickety, antiquated API appears focused on returning you little more than your own bookmarks. If there’s a clear way to accomplish export of not just my bookmarks, but all bookmarks with one or more tags, from all users – I haven’t been able to find it yet.Update: 24 hours later, Yahoo! has issued a statement saying they would like to sell, not close, Delicious.Above: Gabe Rivera, founder of Techmeme, puts Delicious in historical context.Doing it DIY StyleUsing data extraction tools like Needlebase (read all about it) or Yahoo’s own Dapper (our coverage), I could have extracted every link ever tagged Twitter and International on Delicious in about 120 seconds. Then I could have pulled down all the links to articles that Delicious users have categorized as worth saving and pertaining to Portland and History. Then maybe Mapping and Gender. Then dogs and jokes or beans and flatulence. Or whatever. But can I? Nope, Yahoo! blocks all automated extraction of data from Delicious. The company apparently is going to let this unique cross between a museum, a library and a crazy old collector’s attic burn to the ground. I’d like to take a few things with me before that happens, please. Related Posts marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In the screenshot above, for example, I’m trying to use Needlebase to go through every page of links bookmarked both Twitter and International, pull down the titles, links, tags and number of times each link has been bookmarked. Then I would export in CSV, import it into Google Docs, sort by the number column and archive like the top 50 articles about International use of Twitter. I could do that in about 2 minutes, if Delicious would allow it. And then I’d move on to another topic and do the same thing. But can I? No! Right now at least, the site prohibits automated extraction of its data. I sure hope Yahoo! changes its mind. Otherwise, there goes an incredible body of curated knowledge. What a sick tragedy.Where else are you going to find a reading list of the best collected written works and other multimedia about almost any given topic? How has RWW used Delicious? See our write-up: R.I.P. Delicious: You Were So Beautiful to MeOne community of non-profit technologists has been bookmarking links with the tag “NPTech” for years – they have 24,028 links categorized as relevant for organizations seeking to change the world and peoples’ lives using technology. Wouldn’t it be good to have that body of data, metadata and curated resources available elsewhere once Delicious is gone?What someone probably ought to do, as Karl Long said to me on Twitter today, is scrape all the public bookmarks and data and put it on Bittorrent. That would be against the rules, though. Please, please Yahoo! let us save some of what you’ve got, before it goes to waste.

If you’re moving back-and-forth between and print and digital version, for example, it can be a challenge to find where you left off. And referencing and citing passages with proper bibliographic notation is impossible. No longer. Kindle is adding “real page numbers.” Rather than simply numbering the pages as they appear on the Kindle screen, Amazon says it will make sure the page numbers correspond directly to the print addition. Page numbers are being added to tens of thousands of Kindle books, says Amazon, and the feature will be available on Kindle apps in coming months.One of the features about the Kindle that I have long felt wasn’t developed to its full potential was the highlight feature. While you could choose to see which passages were the most often highlighted, you couldn’t really tell who was highlighting those passages, and you couldn’t opt to share your notes publically – say with colleagues or classmates. Kindle is adding a “public notes” feature, that will let you make your notes and highlights available for others to see. You’ll be able to follow the notes of others – an interesting to see what others are thinking about a particular book or passage. This is another big move towards taking advantage of the technologies that can make reading more social.Kindle is also improving the magazine and newspaper layout, something that makes it far better as your go-to device for reading this digital content. And Kindle is adding a new feature that, once you reach the end of the book, you’ll be able to rate it and push your thoughts and recommendations out to your social networks, as well as receive other recommendations about what you should read next. If you have the latest generation of Kindle, you can try an early preview of these features by downloading the software update. Once it becomes available, it will be pushed out to all devices via Wi-Fi.

Why slab foundations are goodThe conventional wisdom in cold climates for basements (since we stopped hand-digging them) has been, “If you need to go down 4′ for a crawl space foundation, why not just dig another 4′ and throw in a basement?” The marginal costs are very low per square foot, definitely less than building the second floor…My cost analyses, however, are showing me that a frost-protected monolithic slab is more cost-effective than a basement as long as the land is cheap. Once the price of land reaches about $20/sq. ft., then a basement may be required by the home-buying market. In other words, the neighborhood is so expensive that the buyers expect the extra square footage of a basement.The tipping point in favor of slab-on-grade over crawl space is that the slab can be the finished floor. Stained concrete is still trendy, bulletproof, and saves at least $3/sq.ft. on your floor system. On radiant-floor heatRadiant floor heat is considered by many to be the most comfortable method of delivering heat. Even zero energy homes need a source of backup heating. Therefore, radiant is often the choice in high end custom homes, when cost is trumped by comfort and “sizzle.”After building and living in a near zero energy home now for three years, we have learned that radiant heat is quite comfortable when it is on. The trouble is, the solar and superinsulation aspects of the house prevent it from coming on very often. In fact, it hasn’t been worth the extra cost of the system (about $10k more than a forced air system), and we wouldn’t do it again.Additional challenges with radiant floor heat:A completely separate ducted system is required for summer air conditioning. A swamp cooler in Denver is by far the best choice (it typically won’t use ductwork).In order to filter, humidify, and ventilate, a separate ducted system must be installed. (Now add $5k to the above $10k).The heating system is at risk of freezing in extreme conditions with a power failure. On a rating system that really worksI’ve finally found my dream house rating system, which is just like an EPA rating label for an appliance or a car.I’ve been saying for years that as consumers get more educated about energy efficiency in homes, the demand for efficient homes will increase, and the selling price of those homes will increase.Well, I’m tired of waiting*, so this rating system gives the consumers what they need to know NOW.NOTE: this is a rating system, and by definition, can only be measured on a house that has been built. This will prevent the most insidious types of greenwashing, like advertising a LEED rating before the home has been built.There isn’t any “embodied energy” rating here, but I think a third scale for that would start making this rating system too confusing. The embodied energy of a low energy new home is small enough to be ignored for now. If and when a carbon tax is implemented, that will be reflected in the selling price of the house.*I realized that until Realtors understand this stuff, most consumers have no hope. I haven’t yet met a Realtor who really understands the difference between a KW and a KWH. On the importance of low-maintenance featuresSustainable Housing can be defined as housing that conserves resources as much as possible.What’s the most important resource to the average person? Their MONEY. Therefore, new green built homes should not only aim for zero energy, but also for zero maintenance. Life’s too short to paint siding. Kevin Dickson was an early convert to solar energy. He earned a bachelor of science degree from the Colorado School of Mines in 1977, and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and solar technology from Colorado State University in 1979. In the early 1980s, he was involved in hundreds of solar thermal systems and received several design patents.Thirty years later, Dickson’s focus is on net-zero energy home design, and to that end he writes a blog called Green Building in Denver where he comments on a slew of products and issues involving energy-efficient construction.He makes no bones about the blog’s local bent. He offers, for example, a number of suggestions for energy code improvements for his community and comments regularly on policies of his local electric utility. Given that one aim of sustainable building is to make structures appropriate to their specific locales, making the blog local seems completely appropriate. The site would be a boon for anyone in a similar climate zone, if not right in Denver.You don’t, however, have to be from Denver or Colorado to take something away from Dickson’s blog. His reach is broad enough to welcome in just about anyone with an interest in energy efficient design. If he finds something of interest elsewhere, he’ll report on that, too.Dickson lives in a “near zero energy home” himself, so he can speak from personal experience on the pros and cons of various low-energy strategies (for a detailed look at the house, check the blog entry from Oct. 6, 2008). And to his credit, when something he’s tried doesn’t work he’s happy to say so.And yes, he’s the same Kevin Dickson who’s a frequent contributor to the GBA Q&A forum.Here are some excerpts from the blog: On electric cars (from 2008)OK, you gotta keep your old clunker running 2-3 more years until the GM Volt is released.Current estimates have the Volt going about 40 miles before a little gas engine kicks in to increase range. Five more years of battery development will increase range enough to wean us from gas entirely.As we all have hoped, technology will get us out of this mess, and please note that the free market economy is what encourages innovations. Government incentive programs should be used sparingly. Case in point, the laws that encouraged ethanol production have affected food prices. It’s hard to predict unintended consequences, and the free market is smarter than any of us.

Editors’ Recommendations On the Road with Mikah Meyer, the First Person to Visit Every National Park Site in One Trip The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now For most small business entrepreneurs, having the chance to tell the story of your craft often gets lost in the shuffle of developing and maintaining your business. Focus on growing a customer base, providing quality products, and marketing your business take precedent over finding a medium to spread your message, no matter how influential it may be. For journalist John Peabody however, the passion and inspiration behind what makes every small business unique defines the framework behind his latest project, The Hand & Eye.When John first launched The Hand & Eye nearly one year ago, he began with the simple premise of chronicling a new class of craftsmen, makers, and creative minds in hopes of celebrating their work and telling their stories. But instead of finding currently-trending individuals or businesses, he set out to find those who hadn’t yet had their stories told. Twelve months later, The Hand & Eye features an exclusive mix of entrepreneurs with skills ranging from clock making, to surfboard shaping, to hand-painted outdoor advertisements.Like most good ideas, the thought to create The Hand & Eye struck John at a rather odd moment; on a flight to Puerto Rico for a surfing trip. Although the idea for showcasing small businesses came at 35,000 feet, John knew he wanted to approach it in an original way and aspired to send a different kind of message. “I didn’t want it to be just about the products, but rather something to feature interesting jobs,” Peabody tells The Manual, “a way to inspire people and document fascinating stories.”After spending just a few moments on the site, these fascinating and inspiring stories jump out with every click. A journalist since his days in college, it’s easy to see John has a knack for telling compelling and exciting stories; a knack he puts on full display with The Hand & Eye.But for the former small business editor at Reuters, it’s his improved photography skills he feels most proud of. Not only does he acknowledge the fact that proper photography helps capture the essence of what the makers and craftsmen do, but he feels it lets him do right by them and provide their craft the justice it deserves.For now, The Hand & Eye mostly covers entrepreneurs on the East Coast, with most of the stories coming out of New York City and Brooklyn — where Peabody calls home. Despite New York City experiencing its own industrial and manufacturing renaissance as of late, the idea of branching out and finding more outside of the city is one of the next steps for The Hand & Eye. “I’d love to just travel and bring The Hand & Eye to places not usually covered,” John says, adding, “I’ve always been fascinated with spending a week in Detroit; there’s just so much going on there.”In the mean time, John continues to document the rich culture of craftsmen the East Coast has to offer, and provides his followers with exceptional, awe-inspiring content. It’s hardly just one thing which allows The Hand & Eye to stand out, but rather the harmony of all the unique designers, farmers, woodworkers, and crafters he’s found along the way.With just a year under his belt developing the triumph that is The Hand & Eye, it’s clear John’s passion for small business and penchant for writing runs deep. Color us intrigued to see what John has in store for the next twelve months.To take a look at all of John’s featured small businesses, head on over to The Hand & Eye website. 10 Best Crime Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Professional Nomads Show Off How They Renovated an Airstream 12 Classic Sci-Fi Novels Everyone Who Likes Reading Should Read

Sinclair was accompanied by NDP-MPs Charlie Angus and Romeo Saganash (Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou), who bashed the bishops’ behaviour.“I am disgusted,” said Saganash, a Cree politician from Quebec who survived 10 years in residential school.“To state ‘the Catholic church as a whole in Canada was not associated with the residential schools’ pushes this church towards very irresponsible, historical, revisionism,” added Angus (Timmins-James Bay), a Catholic.Sen. Murray Sinclair, who chaired the TRC, said it was sad to see the church try and distance itself from the issue now.“They’re not taking responsibility and that’s a shame,” he said.It took survivor Evelyn Korkmaz, who shared the stage with the politicians, to clarify the subject.“The church has acknowledged wrongdoing,” she said. “So all we’re asking for is a verbal apology.”Korkmaz attended notorious St. Anne’s residential school in Angus’s riding, whose survivors are battling Ottawa for the same compensation offered other survivors.Angus, who has been championing their fight, said the church has to apologize and noted he was “distressed” Canadian bishops weren’t insisting he do that.But Gagnon defended the head of the church.“I agree with the way the Pope is handling this in waiting for an opportune time,” he said.“He has been invited to Canada from the prime minister, from three of our presidents of the Catholic conference of bishops of Canada…His response had to do with Call to Action No. 58 and its rather strict confines.”Pope Francis has apologized to Indigenous peoples in Bolivia for the impact of colonialism and said sorry to survivors of priestly sexual abuse in Ireland.“We have a track record with this Pope who is not afraid to confront the hard issues,” Gagnon [email protected] (Residential school survivor Evelyn Korkmaz, left, Senator Murray Sinclair, and NDP MP Romeo Saganash at a news conference in Ottawa) Kathleen MartensAnnette Francis APTN NewsA news conference to clear the air about the Pope’s apology to Indian residential school survivors only seemed to confuse things further.Bishop Lionel Gendron told reporters in Ottawa Wednesday the Catholic church is a “decentralized” organization and Pope Francis can’t be held responsible for what others have done.But Senator Murray Sinclair called that “a failure” and said the apology demanded by his Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is needed by survivors to heal.Senior leaders of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops addressed the media in Ottawa in front of an NDP motion to be tabled in the House of Commons calling on Pope Francis to apologize for residential schools. The motion failed after one MP voted no. It’s not clear who voted against it, but in a scrum prior to Question Period, Conservative Indigenous Affairs Critic said it has no place in parliament.“We like to keep a separation between church and state in terms of Parliament directing specific actions,” she said. “And I think we also believe that that’s an important distinction to keep, which the other parties don’t believe.”The bishops said the Pope may apologize in person if he came to Canada and met with Indigenous peoples.But according to Richard Gagnon, Archbishop of Winnipeg and vice-president of the CCCB, the church has already done so, said.“The pope never said he wouldn’t apologize,” Gagnon said. “What the Holy Father did say was he would not personally respond to (TRC) call to Action 58.”Does that mean Yes or No the Pope will apologize?“Our concern is that it’s important to clear up any misconceptions that are out there and correct any inaccuracies,” Gagnon added.The answer confused reporters who continued to yell questions as the black-robed religious figures left the room.APTN Reporter Annette Francis gives us more from the news conference in Ottawa
OTTAWA — Canada’s price picture softened to two per cent last month following a sharp drop in gasoline prices compared to a year ago.Statistics Canada’s annual inflation number for June hit the Bank of Canada’s ideal target as it came down from 2.4 per cent in May.The result matched the expectations of economists, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.Consumers paid more last month compared with a year earlier for fresh vegetables, auto insurance and mortgage borrowing costs, while they saw lower price tags for gas, internet services and digital equipment.Leaving out gas prices, Statistics Canada says last month’s annual inflation number was 2.6 per cent.The average of Canada’s three gauges for core inflation, which are considered better measures of underlying price pressures by omitting volatile items like gasoline, decelerated slightly to 2.03 per cent, down from 2.07 per cent the previous month.The Canadian Press

Freshman attackman JT Blublaugh (9) looks for an open teammate during a game against Robert Morris Feb. 1 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU won, 11-7.Credit: Ryan Robey / For The LanternWith the preseason wrapping up and the regular season set to get underway, the No. 9 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team faces a stiff test right off the bat.The Buckeyes are set to travel to Baltimore Sunday to take on No. 13 Johns Hopkins to start their season and ECAC title defense.The Johns Hopkins Blue Jays are looking to start the 2014 season with a signature win after a year where they failed to make the NCAA tournament for the first time in 42 years, the longest active streak of any Division I team in any sport.However, OSU coach Nick Myers said he knows traveling to Homewood Field is not an easy task, and the Buckeyes are going to have to be ready from the first faceoff.“Our kids are going to go in there and know that there’s a great challenge that lies ahead,” Myers said. “For us, right now in February, we know there’s still a lot to work on … we’re hoping we can settle into the game and play 60 minutes of Buckeye lacrosse.”The Blue Jays are returning one of the nation’s most prolific offenses — finishing tied for No. 14 for in the nation with 11.5 goals per game in 2013 — centered around junior attackman Wells Stanwick and senior attackman Brandon Benn.Stanwick, a 2013 Honorable Mention USILA All-American, led Johns Hopkins in points last season with 47 while Benn led the Blue Jays in goals with 34.OSU senior defenseman Joe Meurer said the key to containing the potent Blue Jays offense is sticking to the fundamentals.“It’s just sticking to our keys … having a lot of good communication, good sliding and playing good off-ball defense,” Meurer said. “I think everything will fall into place for us.”OSU features a balanced squad led by two preseason first-team All-Americans in Meurer and junior midfielder Jesse King. King is the Buckeyes’ leading returning scorer after totaling 55 points for the 2013 squad that won the ECAC tournament championship.The Buckeyes’ preseason schedule leading up to Johns Hopkins consisted of three exhibition games against Hill Academy, Navy and Robert Morris. OSU went 2-1 in the three contests, with their only loss coming at the hands of Navy, 15-11, Jan. 25.Meurer said the exhibition games were important for the Buckeyes to get time on the field against real opponents.“It helps us identify a lot of our weaknesses and what we need to work on,” Meurer said. “We were playing really good talent in Navy and Robert Morris, so we definitely gained good experience from the games.”Senior defenseman Darius Bowling said the key for the Buckeyes Sunday is to continue to play at the level they are capable of and not let Johns Hopkins control the game.“I think it’s just playing within ourselves,” Bowling said. “We’ve got to stick to our scheme, trust each other, and trust what we’ve been doing all fall and through the preseason.”Sophomore attackman Carter Brown, who missed all three exhibition games for an undisclosed reason, practiced this week for the Buckeyes and Myers is hopeful he is able to take the field Sunday.“We liked seeing him on the practice field for the first time,” Myers said. “Right now, it’s a wait and see, but it’s certainly nice to have him back.”Game time is set for Sunday at 11:30 a.m.

Since Andrea Lekic has announced that she will leave Gyor from the next summer in direction Skopje, media speculation began about the girl who will fill that empty space in Hungarian “dream team”. Two names are the most used in rumours – Camila Dalby and Katarina Bulatovic (right on photo). Danish star Dalby is on the end of the contract with Danish TOP team Randers HK. Danish and Hungarian media write about his transfer to Hungary as something what is already finished, but there is no official statement from any side. Second option is probably the best world’s player in 2012, Montenegrian star Katarina Bulatovic, who playing in Oltchim Valcea. It’s not a secret that Romanian team has problem with finance since the start of the season. Bulatovic is probably the most payed player in the world (some speculation going up to 17.000 EURO per month) and that is something what Romanian TOP team can’t afford in current situation. Some media talking about the defeat in the EHF CL TOP 8 against FTC as consequence of poor moment in Romanian team…Gyor is one of the teams who can pay a lot of money and attract world’s star with club’s infrastracture and ambition. Dalby and Bulatovic are TOP names. Hopefully, we will soon find out who is the new member of succesful Hungarian team… ← Previous Story Handballwoche readers choose Gensheimer and Schülke as players of the year 2012 Next Story → Nikola Karabatic given 6 matches ban, Karabatic will appeal the ban Camila DalbyGyor handballKatarina Bulatovic
A BELGIAN-TUNISIAN Al-Qaeda recruiter who allegedly mentored an extremist who shot dead seven people in France this year has been killed in Pakistan, according to the US monitoring service SITE.SITE said a post on an extremist web forum on Monday announced the death of Moez Garsalloui, who had claimed responsibility for one of the attacks carried out by Mohamed Merah in the southern French city of Toulouse in March.Garsalloui was a jihadist recruiter and propagandist formerly based in Belgium and Switzerland, SITE said, who remained focused on signing up militants to attack targets in Europe even after moving to the battlefields and training camps of Pakistan and Afghanistan.The post announcing Garsalloui’s death said he was killed in a “raid”, SITE said without elaborating, having previously escaped bombings in Miranshah, the main town in the North Waziristan district of Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas.No details of the raid were given but the jihadi website announcement appeared a few days after two US drone strikes in North Waziristan killed 23 people, according to Pakistani security sources.The death notice named Garsalloui as the leader of “Jund al-Khilafah”, or Army of the Caliph, a militant unit that claimed responsibility for Merah’s attack outside a Jewish school on 19 March.MentorA forum post from one of Garsalloui’s accounts in April described meeting Merah in Pakistan and mentoring him, SITE said, helping him as he struggled to make himself understood to other fighters in Arabic.Garasalloui and his wife, Belgian-Moroccan jihadist Malika el Aroud, were convicted by a Swiss court in June 2007 for running websites that supported terrorism.He was jailed for three weeks and then moved to Belgium, where he and his wife were accused of recruiting jihadists to fight in Afghanistan.He left Europe in late 2007 and was later identified as a link between Al-Qaeda leaders and a Belgian network that was disrupted by raids in December 2008, accused of planning an imminent attack.- © AFP, 2012Read: French police detain 19 suspected extremists>Read: France: Gunman’s brother charged over murders>Read: Gunman in Toulouse standoff “filmed killings”>
TWO MEN WERE arrested last night after smashing a window on a late-night bus on Dublin’s Dorset Street.The incident occurred on the 122 bus heading to Ashington at around 11.45pm last night. A plain-clothes Garda escorts one of the men off the bus.Witnesses say that two men, aged 19 and 21, boarded the bus on Dorset Street without paying a fare, went upstairs and opened an emergency exit.This forced the driver to stop the bus. The two men then proceeded to begin kicking windows upstairs, smashing one.Gardaí arrived and the two men were arrested. They were taken to Store Street Garda Station and charged with criminal damage.They will appear before Dublin District Court at a later date. A second Garda follows with the other man. Dublin Bus could not comment on the matter because of the arrests, but said that the level of anti-social behaviour on buses is relatively small and decreasing in terms of journeys taken.The company says it has a “strong working relationship” with gardaí and has a number of initiatives to help drivers and passengers stay safe.Read: ‘I’ll run you over’: Dublin Bus probes driver-cyclist row

Nearly three-quarters (70%) of employees have called their organisation’s employee assistance programme (EAP) for help with mental health problems, according to research by Unum.Unum’s analysis of the 12,610 calls made to its EAP service, provided in conjunction with Lifeworks, between 1 December 2016 and 30 November 2017 also found that of the calls relating to mental health problems, 66% were for anxiety and depression, 13% regarded problems caused by relationship issues and 9% related to bereavement.The research also found:60% of employees who phoned the EAP for mental health problems were offered counselling and 97% were offered an initial appointment within five days. In total, 17,335 counselling sessions were provided between 1 December 2016 and 30 November 2017.92% of employees who were provided with access to counselling support as a result of calling the EAP service saw their mental health improve.22% of employees called the EAP to help with a problem serious enough to affect their performance at work, with 14% wanting support with legal problems and a further 14% looking for guidance on practical problems, for example caring responsibilities.58% of female employees use the EAP.Online support was accessed 74,607 times by employees between 1 December 2016 and 30 November 2017.Ambika Fraser (pictured), head of propositions at Unum, said: “We took the decision to analyse and release these figures to increase awareness of the invaluable support that’s available to hundreds of thousands of UK [employees]. We’re committed to reducing the stigma around mental health concerns and hope the high success rates will encourage more to seek help when they need it.“EAPs are a first line of defence for employers and line managers in protecting the wellbeing of their staff. They provide fast, confidential solutions to all kinds of problems from mental health to debt and relationship worries that could otherwise quickly escalate and impact productivity.”
Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Pentagon has failed to outline how it plans to achieve savings in its civilian and contractor workforces that the fiscal 2013 defense authorization bill calls for, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).Section 955 of the measure requires the department to achieve savings in the cost of the civilian and contractor workforces from FY 2012-2017 at the same rate as military personnel costs associated with reductions in end strength decline.“While DOD developed a plan for reductions in the civilian workforce, it did not provide details to understand how these reductions would be achieved or any information demonstrating that the goals were being achieved,” the report states.“Without this information, Congress has limited assurance on how the department will achieve required savings and whether the savings will be achieved in a manner that is consistent with workforce management laws,” GAO said.DOD has reduced the size of its civilian workforce by 3.3 percent from FY 2012-2016, but civilian personnel costs dropped by only 0.9 percent, the agency found. Over the same period, military end strength has declined by about 6 percent, and personnel costs have fallen by about 8 percent.The congressional watchdog agency found that the Pentagon would need to reduce spending on its contractor workforce by about $4.1 billion from FY 2012-2017 to match the planned reduction in military forces over the same period.“At a time when the entire federal government is facing fiscal challenges that are likely to continue, DOD must plan strategically for reductions to its civilian and contractor workforces to achieve savings,” the report stated, according to the Military Times.

SEATTLE, Washington – Microsoft’s Windows Azure software and related programs have surpassed $1 billion in annual sales for the first time, a sign of progress in the effort to challenge Amazon.com in cloud computing.The sales milestone for Azure – which stores business information and programs on remote servers and lets customers access them over the Web – was reached in the past 12 months, said Curt Anderson, finance chief for Microsoft’s server and tools unit.Microsoft, the largest software maker, is counting on Azure and other Internet-based business programs to bolster growth as a global personal-computer slump erodes demand for Windows software installed on desktop machines. About 20 percent of companies tapping the cloud use Azure, compared with 71 percent usage for Amazon, according to James Staten, an analyst at Forrester Research Inc. Within a year, Microsoft can command as much as 35 percent, he said.“I expect them to double annually from here,” Staten said of Microsoft’s Azure revenue. “Microsoft probably has more net new growth opportunity sitting in front of them than probably anyone in the market.”Microsoft’s $1 billion sales figure includes Azure, as well as software provided to partners to create related Windows cloud services, Anderson said in an interview.Azure subscriptions have risen 48 percent in the past six months, said Takeshi Numoto, Microsoft’s vice president for marketing for the server and tools division. That unit, which encompasses Azure, has posted nine straight quarters of sales growth of at least 10 percent, he said. Windows sales were $18.4 billion last year, down 5.7 percent from a peak in 2010.Gaining ground against Amazon won’t be easy. Microsoft will need to do a better job of convincing existing customers, as well as newer companies seeking to reduce computing costs, why they should opt for Azure, Staten said.“The majority of people thinking about cloud weren’t thinking of Azure first,” Staten said. “That’s been an uphill climb for them, and even though Microsoft is now matching the prices of Amazon and some of the capabilities, they haven’t really answered the question of ‘Why Azure?’”Startups, which tend to be early adopters of new technology, may be an especially hard sell, he said.“They haven’t excited the front-line developers — the ones who made Amazon who they are,” he said. “Those will be hard to influence.”Take Forest Key, an ex-Microsoft manager who is now chief executive officer of hotel-software startup Buuteeq Inc.Even after Key’s firm participated in a Microsoft program that gives free software to startups, he chose Amazon’s cloud service two and a half years ago. Now that Azure is more on par with Amazon, Key said he doesn’t want to switch.Anne Temme, a spokeswoman for Seattle-based Amazon at Weber Shandwick, didn’t respond to a request for comment.Earlier this month, Microsoft rolled out new set of cloud services designed to more directly challenge Amazon and vowed to match the online retailer’s lowest prices for competing products. Since then, Azure added 10,000 customers, Numoto said. Azure lets companies store information and run software on Microsoft’s servers and access it over the Internet.With the latest offering, Microsoft entered a niche known as Infrastructure as a Service, which lets companies move applications to the cloud by renting storage and servers — instead of older versions of Azure that required customers to write programs from scratch.It’s the fastest-growing part of the cloud market, according to Gartner Inc., which estimates that sales of infrastructure services will surge by an average of 38 percent annually to $30.6 billion by 2017 from $6.17 billion last year.“Not that many people have quite figured out that the Azure of today is not the same as two years ago,” David Smith, an analyst at Gartner, said in an interview. “It’s changed a lot and the issue is getting people to give it a second look.”One early convert is Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., which last year moved a North American program that tracks tire performance and wear to Azure from an internal system. The application, which has almost one million data points on various tires for vehicles ranging from trucks to school buses, helps Goodyear catch safety issues and propose the best products for typical road conditions in a specific region at a given time of year.Goodyear, the largest U.S. tiremaker, opted for Azure over Amazon because it already used Micosoft’s database and programming tools, said Johnny McIntosh, director of Goodyear’s fleet headquarters in North America.When Goodyear wanted a similar system in Singapore, it took less than an hour to set up, he said.“It’s not all been rainbows and sunshine – we were an early adopter so you know there will be some growing pains,” he said. “But overall it’s heavily used and it’s held up well.”The total cloud market, which includes categories like advertising, where Azure and Amazon don’t compete, is expected to rise to $237.2 billion in 2017 from $108.9 billion last year, Gartner forecast. Amazon Web Services’ annual revenues could reach $20 billion by 2020 from $1.8 billion last year, Carlos Kirjner, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., estimated in a research report earlier this month.One area where Microsoft has an edge over Amazon is in the so-called private cloud, which lets customers run Web-based programs via their own data centers. Microsoft also links Web- based applications to its traditional software. Amazon hasn’t focused much on the private cloud, Staten said.Microsoft’s flexibility helped win over Xerox Corp, which is barred by some government customers from running its programs in the public cloud. Azure enables Xerox programmers in Bangalore, India, to coordinate with users in the U.S., said Raman Padmanabhan, chief information officer for Xerox’s business services unit.Under the old system, U.S. customers often discovered bugs when it was the middle of the night in India. Now, Indian engineers run virtualization software that replicates systems running in the U.S. to speed development and test new software, he said. The result: costs were cut by 30 percent, productivity improved by 40 percent and 70 percent fewer engineers quit in frustration.“The biggest advantage I have with Microsoft is I don’t have to go to any other vendor for any solution – I can go to one partner for all of my operating systems, all of my development environment and all of my infrastructure tools,” he said. “Why would I waste time looking at another third-party solution?”© 2013, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments

League Round of 16 Draw at Nyon on Tuesday as some of Europe’s biggest clubswere pegged against each other in the first set of knockout fixtures Once the pot-picking party was over the ties read as – Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur FC Basel vs Manchester City Porto vs Liverpool Sevilla vs Manchester United Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-Germain Shakhtar Donetsk vs AS Roma Chelsea vs Barcelona and Bayern Munich vs Besiktas EFA director of competitions Giorgio Marchetti Xabi Alonso and Michael Heselschwerdt take part in the draw for the round of 16 of the Champions League the in Nyon AFP While the contest between Madrid andPSG has the potential to grab the most eyeballs with the defending champions taking on the free-scoring Parisians whose Mercato spending last summer tipped them as one of the favourites for the Champions League the draw also offers classic European encounters in Chelsea vs Barcelona and a clash of contrasting footballing ideologies in Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur The likes of Manchester City Manchester United and Bayern Munich have been pitted against rather comfortable opponents but the Round of 16 have also thrown up certain low-key intriguing fixtures like – Porto vs Liverpool and Shakhtar Donetsk vs AS Roma – which are evenly-matched contests Europe’s premier competition has always been the playground for the elite European clubs with only Porto’s triumph under Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho in 2003/04 edition being the only instance when a club outside the ‘top four’ European domestic leagues won the competition in the last two decades Although UEFA has tried various measures to level the competitive field including the controversial Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations the gulf in class between the likes of Madrid and Bayern on one hand and Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk on the other has never been more apparent With concessions being made for the richer clubs throughout the spectrum especially with the recently proposed ‘four assured group stage spots to the four big leagues’ the newly implemented seeding system prior to the group-stage draws has come as a breath of fresh air The champions of the seven biggest leagues in Europe were named as the top seeds along with the Champions League winner as opposed to the previous seeding system which took into consideration the club co-efficient ratings “Football is about winning it’s about competition it’s about sporting merit I think it’s kind of a natural thing to give those who have won a competition a special treatment” the then-UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino had effusively praised the change in the seeding system In a constantly evolving European club football dynamic the UEFA has often found itself between a rock and a hard place when trying to contend with the bigger European clubs especially after the corruption scandal which left the top footballing administrative bodies in a position of weakness providing the richer clubs with the necessary clout While the current seeding system means that a club like Chelsea have to travel to Azerbaijan in the group stages or that the Scudetto champions Juventus come up against European giant killers Tottenham so early into the competition it somewhat levels the playing field for the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto The club coefficient rating system although a good indicator of the clubs’ consistency in European competitions failed to account for the emerging powerhouses For instance a struggling Arsenal were the top seeds in the group stage draw ahead of the Premier League champions Manchester City in 2015 As a result Manuel Pellegrini’s side was drawn into a difficult group which in turn hampered their overall run in the competition Not only does the current seeding system prevent such episodes it also ensures clubs like Shakhtar Donetsk – one of the dark horses this season – have a fair opportunity to make a deep run into the Champions League Like most business entities the Champions League thrives on the revenue generated from viewership and sponsorship While the estimated global TV audience of the UEFA Champions League this past season stood at the 350 million mark traditional sports programming has suffered spectacularly in the last few years with a worrisome decline in television viewership Madrid’s triumph over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final in June 2017 was witnessed by a cumulative thirty million football fans in the United Kingdom Germany Italy and Spain alone but the dwindling viewership in the prior stages especially in the UK has been a cause of concern for the UEFA Although Premier League clubs do not rely heavily on the revenue generated from the ‘TV money pool’ in the Champions League because of their exponential growth in the domestic TV revenue in the last few years a lack of similar avenues for clubs belonging to other European nations make them somewhat dependent on the UEFA Champions League prize money as well as TV revenue for their source of income The seeding system again comes into play here – while there is always a risk that clashes of titans in the earlier knockout rounds dilute the competition in the later stages it also ensures the television channels have a healthy viewership ratings in the months of February and March thereby increasing the sponsorship potentials for the UEFA and raising its fascination to an outside viewer As more and more clubs enter the competitive fray slowly bridging the gap between the mid-level entrants and the true elite powerhouses the UEFA Champions League continues to evolve But for the common football fan the new seeding system implies your favourite club whether you support Shakhtar Donetsk or Real Madrid an equal chance of progressing to the last eight of the competition Royal Dutch Shell Plc is taking over BG Group Plc in a $70 billion deal the biggest the oil industry has seen in over a decade and the clearest sign yet of consolidation pressures caused by last years collapse in oil prices Heres what you need to know 1 Its a landmark moment for the sector Big mergers in the energy industry typically happen when it becomes cheaper to buy oil and gas reserves on the stock market than to drill for them BGs shares had fallen over 50% since January last year and there was no way Shell could develop a comparable portfolio of assets organically for less than what its paying for BG today Even if the number of potential candidates for such deals is smaller than it was 15 years ago the same logic will surely apply to some other oil and gas companies out there 2 Its not about size its about efficiency The last wave of oil mega-mergers was all about needing a bigger stronger balance sheet because in order to replace reserves oil majors were having to go to places which either involved more technological risks (like the Gulf of Mexico or Alaska) or political ones (like Russia Brazil and Kazakhstan) By contrast this merger is about squeezing costs out of the supply chain after a decade in which the industry got fat on the assumption that the demand of China and India for energy could never be satisfied Shell and BG need to ensure that returns to shareholders can be sustained (Shell was quick to promise higher cash dividends and a $25 billion share buyback program to justify its rationale) The two companies aim to save at least $25 billion a year in costs now and more in years to come One example of this is in Queensland north-east Australia where the two companies have big LNG projects relatively close to each other and where sharing infrastructure costs will improve the economics of both Shell had frozen its $20 billion Arrow project (a joint venture with Petrochina) in January while BG wrote $2 billion off its Queensland Curtis LNG project in December In all they expect to squeeze capital expenditure below $40 billion by 2016 from over $45 billion last year Although the deal will create a bigger gas producer than Exxon and by far western Europes largest integrated player it will be looking to shed $30 billion of non-core assets within three years In three years time the company may not end up being much bigger but it will be a lot leaner 3 This deal is arguably about gas more than it is about oil Both companies are big players in the fast-growing global trade in liquefied natural gas (LNG) a trade underpinned by the long-term imperatives of switching China and India to energy sources that pollute less than coal and giving Europe alternatives to Russian gas The combined company will be the biggest LNG producer in the world with a strong portfolio of as-yet undeveloped assets in East Africa and Australia 4 Its also about deep-water oil production Offshore is the other area of business that Shell and BG are prioritising In a joint presentation Wednesday they forecast that output from offshore could rise to nearly 600000 barrels a day by the end of the decade from just under 150000 b/d today To do that theyll need a big improvement in their fortunes in Brazil where the development of huge new discoveries has been hobbled by rampant corruption and cost inflation at their partner Petrobras 5 It most definitely isnt about US shale except inasmuch as cheap shale gas has undermined the math behind the two companies investments in importing LNG into the US (where they have no fewer than five regasification terminals) Neither company is a major player in shale from the lower 48 US states True BG has bought acreage in Texas Louisiana and Pennsylvania but it produces the equivalent of less than 60000 barrels of oil a day from them and has repeatedly put off spending big money on developing them This article first appeared on fortunecom Contact us at [email protected]

Financial Services: $137 billion Thats what the company will pay to the federal state and DC governments to resolve the culpability of its ratings agency in draining trillions of dollars from our bank accounts 401ks and home equity not to mention contributing mightily to the global financial crisis As Attorney General Eric Holder put it: "As S&P admits under this settlement company executives complained that the company declined to downgrade underperforming assets because it was worried that doing so would hurt the companys business While this strategy may have helped S&P avoid disappointing its clients it did major harm to the larger economy contributing to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression" But S&P got off cheap and the fact that none of the people in charge of the company at the time are going to jail tells you its business as usual between Washington and Wall Street Its just a speeding ticket people Move along The company was quick to point out that it wasnt guilty of what it admitted to: "The settlement contains no findings of violations of law by the Company S&P Financial Services or S&P Ratings" the companys press release asserts Nope just a level of odiousness that still resonates eight years later S&P part of McGraw Hill Financial Inc rates bonds for a livingit still doesand it was living well up to the financial crisis by rubber stamping its top AAA rating to tranche after tranche of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOS) from 2004 to 2007 The way this works is that the bond issuers pay the ratings agencies to rate them No conflict there right Triple-A is the rating reserved for the best of the best But RMBs and CDOs that S&P was rating were partially underwritten by the vast number of no-doc "liar loan" and other mortgages being handed out by equally sleazy outfits such as Countrywide Financial It all collapsed like the Ponzi scheme it was when these unfit buyers started to default on their mortgages and the value of the bonds crashed It would lead to cascading calamities including the collapse of Lehman Brothers the bailout of AIG Freddie and Fannie Mac (quasi-government mortgage agencies) not to mention widespread contagion in the auto industry S&P will also pay $125 million to calPERS the California pension fund that like many other pension funds bought some of these AAA bonds under the guise that they were safe Nice work that For years S&P was able to fend off lawsuits by claiming that its ratings were merely statements of opinion protected by the First Amendment which particularly ticked me off Dont use our free-press/free-speech amendment to shelter your atrocious behavior But that defense finally collapsed after the government took another tack: alleging that S&P committed fraud "As S&P knew" read the Justice Departments lawsuit "these representations were materially false and concealed material facts in that S&P’s desire for increased revenue and market share in the RMBS and CDO ratings markets led S&P to downplay and disregard the true extent of the credit risks posed by RMBS and CDO tranches in order to favor the interests of large investment banks and others involved in the issuance of RMBS and CDOs" S&P continued to resist despite the DOJ uncovering emails that showed S&P employees knew they had clearly underestimated the risk of the RMBs and CDOs Heres my personal favorite: “Let’s hope we are all wealthy and retired by the time this house of cards falters" (Some in fact did and are) S&Ps other defense is essentially that the bankers all knew we were full of it In the agreement that S&P signed with prosecutors it admits to the fact that the company was selling garbage The DOJ also made S&P eat the companys assertion that the lawsuit was retaliation for S&Ps downgrading the debt of the United States in 2011 S&P was wrong about the quality of its bonds and wrong about the quality of US treasuries Treasuries have never been more desirable So now S&P is free to go about its business which is an oligopoly that it shares with Fitch and Moodys the same threesome that controlled the rating market in 2007 In its reregulation of the financial industry Congress left the ratings agencies alone Which means that at some point in the future you can expect the same problems to crop again

it comes to science in India In this Walk the Talk on NDTV 24X7 he tells The Indian Express Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta why he believes IT has sucked scientific talent in the country regrets lack of courage among leaders and urges setting up of more institutions to attract the youth If science was cricket Professor C N R Rao would be Sachin Tendulkar Kapil Dev Rahul Dravid the Nawab of Pataudi together You could add Jacques Kallis too But they have a very short life; I have been working for the last 60 years doing research Our lifespans are very different If you have worked in science it’s a way of life You have shelves full of your books and then there are the PhD theses of your students You are even more proud of the latter than former How many PhD students have studied under you Around 160 people who have worked directly with me and a number of post-doctorates and others maybe 200 by now It’s not for no reason that you are a Bharat Ratna Many people do not realise that the science you are doing is of a very high level A lot of media attention is focused on Tendulkar because we don’t understand materials or basic research I do spectroscopy as well The entire world has been very nice to me that has given me real recognition And then in India of course they have always been with me As nice as they can be Even this poor country when it had nothing it supported us Slowly we have graduated to this level… very good labs I saw an interview of yours in Current Science 12 years back where you said that despite being such a poor country India still has done a lot for science Well they could do more Because when we are doing well others are doing better We are sub-critical in everything You famously called our political discussions idiotic I know you didn’t call politicians idiots It was a very unscientific word but it was apt Idiotic is parliamentary language You have been an advisor to five prime ministers after Indira Gandhi All the prime ministers have been good particularly some have been enthusiastic but what bothers me is whether we have really understood the role of science and its importance for India Do we realise that today’s science becomes tomorrow’s technology Unless we are leaders in science we won’t be leaders in technology I don’t know if that is fully appreciated by the people concerned in India In fact we confuse day before’s engineering for tomorrow’s science That is one thing Another mistake is that something like a rocket goes off we think it’s science There is not much science in that Real science is that which is done in small laboratories chemistry biology physics whatever It’s small science that takes science forward Basic science science which comes out of curiosity Yes small science basic science takes us forward gives you progress All your recognition in science comes from that Do you think Indians lack the joy of curiosity Well that is in our system And also in our reward system Suppose you are only rewarding bankers and people doing things other than scholarly activities the value system immediately affects your mind People are not interested in being creative The country has confused making atom bombs and missiles with science Science has suffered in India Oh it has Eventually it is the creative urge that drives man to do things independent of money grants I don’t want anything no money will satisfy me But the pleasure of discovering something making something worthwhile keeps me happy Has Indian science suffered because of this confusion of science with strategic assets as we call them Absolutely When people say they have given so much money for science actually what they are giving is for big projects say in atomic energy or space That is not enough They have to support people in universities in educational institutions and young people to come up Young people don’t find it attractive to work here because they don’t get enough to go on working in a competitive fashion Last five to 10 years there is a slight improvement but we have a long way to go Now you have an autonomous organisation to fund science The National Science and Engineering Research Board was created based on our Scientific Advisory Council’s recommendations with a lot of money They can create institutions recognise groups individuals they can create missions they have a lot of freedom They don’t face financial or bureaucratic control Otherwise you might get a big grant but you will never be able to use it there are so many rules and regulations audits… Many young scientists tell me ‘Prof Rao I get a three-year grant By the time I finish and send them the report for the second year the third year is over’ So they never end up getting the third-year grant because (the authorities) have to approve the second-year report before they give you the third-year grant By that time the third year is over My retired father couldn’t go and collect his pension for a couple of years When he went eventually they said ‘Give us survival certificates for the previous two years too’ He said ‘Look I haven’t come back from the dead’ But they said this is procedure The same thing happened to my father (laughing) So in this organisation you have cut that bureaucracy I hope so What’s nice is that every young person who comes (to the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research Bangalore) has his own laboratory very good facilities Tell us about this centre you have set up With government money but I’ve got funding from various sources I was on the advisory board of the United Arab Emirates One of the sheikhs wanted to build something in science I was on the committee He liked me he gave me $4 billion to do whatever I want I built a small lab in his name Tell us about the work you do What are advanced materials Very few people know that you have worked with Dr C V Raman I started working on structure of molecules then spectroscopy to look at molecules then magnetism Slowly I started to think that if I want to make a name from India anything that depends on very heavy fancy equipment I won’t be able to do Americans will always have better equipment I thought I must work in an area where I can make completely new things So I picked material chemistry 55 years ago — very few people were working in it at the time Now it has become mainstream science Many people think I am the grandfather in this field It has become so important technologically that people think of me when they think of the subject The subject deals with designing and discovering materials with extraordinary novel properties which have direct implications on technology What do advanced materials do for me Whether it’s electronics or biomedical sciences it is the material that is seeing progress And you need the right kind of material whether it’s replacement of your spine or skin… or electronics magnetic material construction material Look at the entire area of composits We make composits which are stronger than steel The new carbon materials are much stronger than steel It is also used in security body armour tank armour for rockets missiles Somebody is working on artificial skin… One of the greatest persons in this area is in MIT my friend Robert Langer He has achieved targeted delivery of drugs — the drug goes directly to where your brain cancer is He is the one who has developed artificial skin Recently we put two types of nano-materials in polymers materials which are so strong Advanced materials is an area which has no end You are still attracting enough young people driven by curiosity The problem is that after they get good education we do not have a sufficient number of good institutions where they can be used… Suppose they get a job in a second-grade university they feel they are wasting their time Recently we have got five IISERs (Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research) these are coming up well But we need more institutions and we have to improve our universities There is no choice Either we have no PhDs or we have useless PhDs we mass produce them We are not producing many as compared to the Chinese They now have 23000 PhDs per year we are producing about 8000 But the real problem is we need many PhDs say in computer science We have a lot of IT workers but there are very few PhDs in computers But you have said in the past that IT has taken away too much talent from science Too much In fact (Infosys Executive Chairman) Narayana Murthy feels that I am against IT which is not true What I am saying is you can’t have one profession like that which is a very routine profession — it does not require high creativity — sucking away everybody Imagine in the city of Bangalore I don’t have one student coming in for research Everybody is from Bihar Uttar Pradesh Rajasthan of course a lot of people from Bengal very few from Bangalore Because it is the IT city making money What happens to 20 generations of thair saadam (curd rice) I thought that was the fuel for mathematical research Bangalore is no longer what it used to be But the main thing is that all this is happening because the respect for science in our society is not very high The value system doesn’t have science at the top but somewhere at the bottom Well it is fashionable to support science you give a little money throw a few crumbs… Do you think the UPA government has been a disappointment because it started with the promise of allowing foreign universities and larger institutions Foreign universities won’t save us eventually we have to have our own (universities) genuinely autonomous I was one of the first professors of IIT Kanpur I was less than 30 at the time We had American aid and it was wonderful IIT Kanpur was fantastic It is no longer the same That type of thing won’t do unless there is excitement from within… In about 20 years India would have a much larger student population We have to do something about education and science We have to do something for rural India particularly Can you educate us a bit about nanotechnology Science is no longer the old physics and chemistry You won’t see bottles in my lab smoke and smell Bunsen burners you don’t see anymore Today’s chemistry is highly inter-disciplinary If you want to do something in chemistry you have to know biology mathematics and computation Good research today is inter-disciplinary Changes have taken place in biology also We have to understand this we have to encourage science which is current science that is futuristic which has a direct implication on new technologies Nanotechnology is one of them You make a nano-material you see its properties its phenomena Because it is small it has new properties For example if you have gold it shines If you go on making smaller and smaller particles of it very tiny it will no longer shine It will no longer be a metal And we can exploit the properties of these small particles Tell us about your conversations with the PMs you have worked with In terms of excitement for science Pandit Nehru was romantic about science Rajiv Gandhi was really excited personally involved in science The person who was very easy to deal with was (I K) Gujral He didn’t discuss much He would say ‘You want it then karwa denge (will do it)’ Whatever you may say about Manmohan Singh
