150-Day Battle for Strong and Prosperous State Underway

first_img News NewsEconomy SHARE News 150-Day Battle for Strong and Prosperous State Underway Facebook Twitter AvatarJung Kwon Ho North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) center_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News By Jung Kwon Ho – 2009.05.06 5:14pm Shenyang, China — It has been reported that the North Korean authorities have instructed committees of the Party to undertake a “150-day battle” to achieve enhanced production targets. The instruction was conveyed to the entire membership of the Workers Party in a secret letter from the Central Committee of the Party in March. A source from North Pyongan Province told The Daily NK on the 4th, “The 150-day battle will progress from May 10th, the foundation day of the Workers’ Party, to October 10th. The fundamental aims are the construction of houses, the normalization of farming and railroads and enhancing the activities of local factories and mines.” A source from North Hamkyung Province also reported the same information, saying that, “A decree from the Central Committee of the Party was handed down entitled, ‘On carrying out the 150-day battle.’ However, the details have not been reported.” The reason why Pyongyang is encouraging members of the Workers Party to embark on the 150-day battle is nothing less than its own salvation; to build a “strong and prosperous state” by 2012 in the current situation where foreign aid is decreasing due to several recent, provocative acts including the missile launch of April 5th. Sources analyze that the authorities have decided, not for the first time, to try and squeeze fresh production achievements from the manpower of the citizens. One of the sources said, “The backdrop to the 150-day battle is to prepare an economic breakthrough to achieve their purpose: completion of the strong and prosperous state by 2012. There is also another meaning: that we are trying to form the foundations to live by ourselves, standing up to the U.S. sanctions against us.” The Workers Party handed over the secret letter, “Announcement to members of the Party,” on March 10, immediately after the delegates’ election to the Supreme People’s Assembly. In the letter, it suggested detailed tasks to complete a strong and prosperous socialist state by 2012. The precise production goals for the strong and prosperous state announced in the letter were to generate 7.76 million kilowatts of electricity a year, produce 33 million metric tons of metal, 13 million metric tons of coal and 7 million metric tons of food, move 72 million metric tons of freight and, additionally, modernize the economy and technology-intensive industries. North Korea has suggested such targets and undertaken citizen renovation campaigns when it has faced difficulties before. The most obvious cases were the “100-day battle” of 1978 and the “200-day battle” which took place 10 years later. During the “200-day battle” of 1988, the North Korean authorities completed facilities for the 13rd World Festival of Youth and Students, the first phase of construction of both the Suncheon Vinylon Complex and Sariwon Kalium Fertilizer Factory, and the construction of a 100 kilowatt hydraulic power plant and extension at the Kim Chaek Steel Mill.

Alberta downgraded to AA- by Fitch

first_img Keywords Credit ratingsCompanies Fitch Ratings Related news High debt levels threaten banks’ strong results: Fitch The rating agency said that it expects Alberta to record a deficit of around $20 billion in fiscal 2021, up from the $6.8 billion deficit originally anticipated in the provincial budgetFitch is also forecasting a 7.5% decline in nominal GDP for the province in 2020, followed by 4.7% growth in 2021, and 3.7% after that.Alongside the downgrade, Fitch lowered its rating outlook on Alberta from stable to negative, citing the risk that added stressors could lead to a further deterioration in credit quality.“The negative outlook is based on the potential that the risks identified in the rating case scenario are not sufficiently addressed by policy actions likely to be taken by the province through fiscal 2025,” it said. On the heels of downgrading Canada’s AAA sovereign rating last week, Fitch Rating is reducing Alberta’s rating to AA- from AA, citing the effects of Covid-19 on the province’s balance sheet.Fitch said it downgraded Alberta due to “sharply higher provincial borrowing” during the current economic crisis, and the future recovery, which will raise its debt-to-GDP ratio.

He said this must be done in a way that will open up opportunities for providing the highest quality in video production and greater interactivity while contributing to improved efficiencies in the use of the spectrum.Referring to concerns expressed recently by the Media Association of Jamaica about the 2015 timeline set by the National Steering committee for the switchover, Mr. Vaz noted that it was important to have the full agreement of all the players in the industry. He said a feasibility study needs to be conducted as a necessary precursor to making a final determination on the appropriate date for digital switchover.As part of this effort, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will be conducting a two day workshop from December 2-3 at the Mona School of Business. Mr. Vaz said the ITU will provide an opportunity for all the stakeholders to arrive at a consensus on the implementation of this necessary and important measure.

Law dean said, ‘You’ll change your mind;’ Susan Black proved him wrong

first_img JUDGE SUSAN HARRELL BLACK at her 1979 investiture in the Middle District of Florida. Black was elevated to the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in 1992.Like many of the 23 women judges who transformed the federal Judiciary in 1979, Susan Harrell Black was encouraged by her father to have professional aspirations — but for a darkly practical reason.“My father was a B-17 wing commander during World War II, and also a prisoner of war. So many of his comrades did not come back, and they left widows with children, and they had no skills,” Black recalled. “With my sister and me, he wanted to make sure we could support ourselves.”Her father introduced Black, as a young teenager, to the University of Florida Law School dean, and they discussed her interest in the law.“The dean said, ‘Well, you’ll change your mind.’”The dean was wrong. In 1967, Black graduated from the University of Florida — “I didn’t know there was another law school.”Growing up, Black exhibited several qualities that would benefit her career. She was an enthusiastic reader and writer, and her father’s livelihood required frequent moves. “I didn’t like moving all the time, but it made me adapt,” Black said. “It was the best thing that ever happened to me. I had to make new friends. Like anything, it took practice.”She learned from each job, moving quickly from an Army Corps of Engineers position to serving as a circuit prosecutor. By age 30, she was elected a county judge, and two years later, she became a Florida state circuit judge.Despite the novelty of women lawyers, Black said her male colleagues served as willing mentors.“It had to be men helping me back then, and often older men,” she said. “There weren’t any women to learn from.”Her appointment to the Middle District of Florida was a natural fit. Black loved trying cases, exploring the legal and factual intricacies. “I enjoyed the courtroom. I enjoyed the entire process. And I more than enjoyed a trial when I had two really good attorneys.”Her most interesting case involved an espionage trial in the early 1980s, involving a Vietnam veteran accused of selling classified code information.Beyond the actual case, which gained notoriety, she was the first judge to try a new procedure in which all participants adhered to new security rules. “An FBI agent was assigned to the case, who was in the office. Everyone in the case had to have a security clearance.”In 1992, while awaiting confirmation to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Black met future Justice Sonia Sotomayor, then a nominee for a U.S. district judgeship in New York. The two formed a friendship that continues.“I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right people,” said Black. But the pioneering women judges did have some common attributes that furthered their careers. “Especially early on, women judges had to be a bit organized, a bit driven,” Black said. “It was a skill set that translated well.”This is the fifth in a series of articles published by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts about 23 women judges who in 1979 reshaped the federal judiciary.

City expected to ban bunnies and spiders from performing on The Pier

first_imgHomeNewsCity CouncilCity expected to ban bunnies and spiders from performing on The Pier Jan. 06, 2017 at 7:45 amCity CouncilCity expected to ban bunnies and spiders from performing on The PierGuest Author4 years agoanimalscity councilcity council daily pressSanta Monicasanta monica councilsanta monica daily pressSanta Monica Pier  The magic rabbit that appeared in Palisades Park as part of a disappearing act over the summer may soon vanish for good. On Tuesday, the City Council will consider adding rabbits, rats and spiders to the long list of animals banned from performing at popular tourist areas in the city.The exotic animal ban includes areas at the Beach, Ocean Front Walk, the Pier, the Third Street Promenade and Transit Mall.Like many tourist destinations around the world, Palisades Park was known for showmen offering photos with exotic animals and birds for money up until 2015. After a flood of complaints from the public and police, the City banned the practice, citing instances where the animals caused a commotion and complaints of inhumane treatment.In an effort to keep the ordinance narrowly focused, the Council banned snakes, reptiles, non-human primates and birds, but it seems animals outside the list have ben popping up near the Pier.Most recently, a man showing off his collection of tarantulas has frightened some tourists. Over the summer, people worried about the welfare of the white rabbit that performed all day in the heat, according to the City’s principal administrative analyst Melissa Spagnuolo.“It can get hot and the crowds can get large and it’s not the best environment for wild animals,” Spagnuolo said, who works in the Community and Cultural Services Department and helped draft the expanded ordinance.Over the past two years, City Leaders have acted to move away from animal related acts, prohibiting exotic and wild animals from tourist areas and ending pony rides at the farmer’s markets.“This ordinance would protect people in our parks from spiders, scorpions and rats, but also would protect small, vulnerable animals like bunny rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs from being exploited for ‘showmanship’ or being put at risk of getting loose in public spaces where their safety might be in jeopardy,” said Councilman Kevin McKeown who signaled his support for expanding the ordinance next week.Although there are public safety concerns over whether the animals have vaccinations or could attack a tourist, Spagnuolo says most of the complaints received by the City concern the well being of the animals themselves.“We knew that at some point, we would most likely need to expand the list,” Spagnuolo said, adding that the list could be expanded again if the City notices new animals popping up near The Pier or Promenade.If the ordinance passes Tuesday, it will appear on the agenda again before the end of January for a second reading and then go into effect long before the next tourist season starts.City Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 10 at City Hall, 1685 Main St. Tags :animalscity councilcity council daily pressSanta Monicasanta monica councilsanta monica daily pressSanta Monica Piershare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentCity leaders to discuss Airport Park plans at next meetingLight rail riders plan to forget their pants SundayYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsDraft Housing Element released to publicBrennon Dixson2 weeks agoFeaturedNewsRent Board announces general adjustment effective SeptemberBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsCommissioners talk diversity, or a lack thereofBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsSMMUSD breaks down budget revisionsBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsCity Manager selection process beginsBrennon Dixson4 weeks agoFeaturedLifeNewsJournalist bikes from Chicago to Santa Monica collecting Covid storiesClara Harter1 month agolast_img read more

TIM BOOTHAP Sports WriterWith the MLS season beginning this weekend, here are nine players or duos to keep an eye on for the 2019 season:— Josef Martinez and Pity Martinez Atlanta United. Josef Martinez, the reigning Golden Boot winner, decided not to move overseas and instead signed a new deal to remain in Atlanta. He lost Miguel Almiron as his partner in goal scoring, but the addition of Pity Martinez from River Plate in Argentina will help keep Atlanta among the most potent offenses in the league.— Zlatan Ibrahimovic, LA Galaxy. Safe to say the Lion roared in his first MLS season. In true Ibrahimovic fashion, he arrived to great fanfare, backed up all the hype, considered leaving MLS after a half season and decided to return. As the 37-year-old said at a recent Galaxy event: “Because they say I’m old, I am looking to break every record in MLS this season.” Watch out.— Lucho Acosta and Wayne Rooney, D.C. United. No team in the Eastern Conference made a bigger turnaround last season than D.C. United after the addition of Rooney and pairing him with Acosta. Acosta turned down overtures from France to remain in MLS and now gets a full season with Rooney. Throw in D.C. spending all of 2019 at Audi Field and expect the Rooney-Acosta combo to keep them among the contenders in the East.— Tim Howard, Colorado. It’s the farewell tour for one of the best American goalkeepers of all-time. The 39-year-old announced in January the 2019 season with the Rapids would be his last as a professional after a sterling career that included three World Cup appearances and a lengthy stay in the Premier League at Manchester United and Everton.— Darwin Quintero, Minnesota United. It’s time for the Loons to show up. They will move into their new stadium in April. They’ve added one of the best defensive midfielders in the league in Osvaldo Alonso. Now it’s on Quintero to be the leader of Minnesota’s offensive attack that will need to give fans something to get excited about showing up at Allianz Field.— Zach Steffan, Columbus. The reigning MLS goalkeeper of the year will only be around for half the year — at least that’s the plan of now — ahead of his move to Manchester City. He’ll be a big part of Columbus’ early transition with coach Gregg Berhalter moving on to take over the U.S. national team.— Chris Wondolowski, San Jose. Wondolowski’s next goal will match Landon Donovan for the most goals in MLS history. The 36-year-old is also trying to become the first player in MLS history with double-digit goals in 10 straight seasons.— Carlos Vela, LAFC. Vela was responsible for 14 goals and 13 assists in LAFC’s debut season, enough to draw some flirtation from big European clubs. He stayed and will be trying to have LAFC build on last year’s stellar inaugural season that fell short after being upset in the postseason.— Jordan Morris, Seattle. Morris never appeared in an MLS game in 2018 after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee during the CONCACAF Champions League. Before playing a game, he’ll be the front-runner for comeback player of the year and will add to a dangerous Seattle attack that will have Raul Ruidiaz playing at the top for a full season, allowing Morris to attack from a wing position. If they stay healthy, Morris’ addition may give Seattle the most dynamic attacking midfield in the West.last_img read more

Bjorn leads after course-record 62 at BMW PGA

first_imgVIRGINIA WATER, England – Thomas Bjorn set a course record at Wentworth with a 10-under-par 62 on the opening day of the BMW PGA Championship on Thursday. Bjorn grabbed an eagle and seven birdies to end his round two shots clear of Shane Lowry of Ireland, who shot 64 on the West Course. However, poor weather forced two separate delays totaling nearly two hours in the European Tour’s flagship event, and darkness halted play with 33 in the 150-man field yet to complete their first round. It is the third occasion in Bjorn’s 21-year European Tour career he’s shot a round of 62, and the Dane rated it the best in his 434 tournaments. ”Absolutely,” he said. ”You can’t ask for much more.” BMW PGA Championship full-field leaderboard BMW PGA Championship: Articles, videos and photos Bjorn is contesting his 17th BMW PGA, with his best finish being a share of fifth in 1988, and comes after he missed the cut in the Spanish Open last week with 75-78. ”Last week was awful, and I was starting to feel a bit frustrated with things, and to be honest in practice, it hasn’t been great, either,” he said. ”So … today is a little bit surprising. ”I haven’t had the best record here. I haven’t had the best round here. It’s been a long time since I’ve actually had any sort of result on this golf course. It’s not a place when I come in here, I think, ‘Oh, this is going to be a great week.’ I guess I’ve got to start sticking my head down for the rest of the week.” Lowry produced his best round since a Carnoustie course-record 64 last October in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He made only 25 putts with an old putter he found in his Dublin apartment. ”I have been messing about here and there with putters, and pulled this one out, got the cobwebs off it,” he said. Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain was alone in third place with a 65, and Gary Stal of France made the most of his last minute call-up by shooting a 66. Stal was first reserve for the event, and took the place of countryman Victor Dubuisson, who pulled out injured. Rory McIlroy’s 4-under 68 included holing his second shot for eagle at the par-four seventh hole, and landing his second shot to within six inches for eagle at the par-five 12th. ”The two eagles helped, and it’s a good round for me around this place,” he said. ”It’s a place I’ve notoriously struggled on, but it was good to shoot something in the sixties.” Henrik Stenson, who can become the new world No. 1 with a good result, also carded 68. However, defending champion Matteo Manassero of Italy slumped to an 8-over 80 that included a quadruple-bogey nine at the 17th.last_img read more

Kalispell’s Crowded Classrooms Concern Parents, Officials

first_imgMore students are roaming the halls of Kalispell’s five public elementary schools and, according to school officials, that means more problems. In response, School District 5 has been hosting public meetings to discuss solutions. Options to address overcrowded classrooms include everything from beginning half-day kindergarten classes to building a new elementary school. Both short- and long-term options were presented to the public during a meeting this week at Hedges Elementary and Superintendent Darlene Schottle said the school board will vote this month on how to move forward. Some immediate solutions include adding three classrooms to the old Laser School site; returning to half-day kindergarten or giving parents and students a half-day option; reconfiguring the school week for kindergarteners; or hiring more staff. Schottle said the kindergarten classes are some of the fastest growing in the district, which is problematic because, according to state regulations, those classes should have the lowest student-to-teacher ratio. Instead of the required 20 to 1 ratio, Schottle said most kindergarten classes in the district have an average ratio of 25 to 1. “We noticed an increase in students over the last three years, but this year had a huge impact,” she said. “Having more students means less one-on-one time or group work the teacher can do.” While first through eighth grades have grown at an annual rate of about 2 percent over the last decade, the kindergarten classes have grown by 4 percent, according to data supplied by the school district. In 2012, there were 359 students enrolled in kindergarten classes in Kalispell’s public schools. If the growth rate continues, there will be more than 550 kindergarteners in 2022. “It’s a pretty steep increase over time and if you look at that (data) you can see why we’re busting at the seams now,” Assistant Superintendent Dan Zorn said during last week’s meeting. Zorn gave a short presentation to parents about some of the district’s options. The most “controversial” of them is mandating half-day kindergarten, which would result in a loss of about $400,000 in state funds. “That $400,000 figure makes me nervous,” he said. “We’ve tightened our belts pretty hard in the last few years and finding more cuts makes me nervous.” Parents were more concerned about how a half-day would affect their children’s education. While some supported the idea of shorter school days, others said a full day was critical to their children developing social skills. Almost everyone agreed that something must be done. “I think it’s a big concern, not just for the elementary school, but I think it’s a problem that’s going to continue as the valley grows,” said Stephanie Mason, who has children in the fourth and fifth grades and is a para-educator in the district. She and others appeared to support constructing a new elementary school in the next few years. According to Zorn and Schottle, the earliest a new elementary school could be opened would be in 2015 and the community would have to vote on a bond to approve it. Such a project would cost more than $10 million, a price tag that doesn’t include costs for staffing and supplies. Schottle said the school board would begin discussing its long-term plans later this year after it decides what to do in the short-term.

Wilderness Empire On Display

first_imgIn 1985, during the 50th anniversary of The Wilderness Society, writer T.H. Watkins stated, “One could comfortably argue that Robert Marshall was personally responsible for the preservation of more wilderness than any individual in history.”The spotlight still shines bright on Marshall and the historic legislation he inspired. The Museum at Central School in Kalispell is featuring a new exhibit that pays homage to Marshall and the wilderness complex bearing his name. The complex encompasses three wilderness sections — the Bob Marshall, the Scapegoat and the Great Bear — that span 1.53 million acres across Northwest Montana. The Bob on its own is one of the largest and oldest wilderness sections, and the overall complex features 1,900 miles of trail.The museum officially unveiled the exhibit at its opening reception on April 9. It was previously on display in Columbia Falls and will remain in Kalispell until next spring. The centerpiece of the display is a historic trail camp featuring antique camping gear and tools that were used to build the original wilderness trails. There are also remnants from the oldest surviving phone line in the U.S. The exhibit features several historic photos of crews constructing trails in the “Bob” as early as 1922 before it became one of the first designated wildernesses in 1964. Newer photos show crews from the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation working on trail maintenance, weed eradication and historic preservation.“This exhibit goes a long way toward helping folks understand this vast wilderness that is right here in our backyard,” said Gil Jordan, the museum’s executive director. “Everyone knows about Glacier Park, but the Bob is this spectacular, untrammeled wilderness, and few people really know about it.”The Kalispell exhibit is getting a jump on upcoming events across the nation that are being organized to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.The Wilderness Institute at the University of Montana and Wilderness50 recently launched a website dedicated to next year’s milestone. The website, www.wilderness50.com, is a growing source of information on upcoming events and projects.The Flathead National Forest is hosting an informational meeting for the public on the Bob Marshall on April 13 at 10 a.m. at the Hungry Horse Ranger Station. Forest managers and staff will be on hand to discuss the complex and the results of ongoing monitoring projects.

In the winter of 1960, Wallace Stegner, dubbed the “Dean of Western Writers,” penned a letter to the federal commission that helped shape the nation’s outdoors policies. The subject of Stegner’s famous letter was the “wilderness idea,” which had grown from a grassroots aspiration of early conservationists into a nationwide movement to preserve sections of public land in their natural state.“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed,” Stegner wrote. The frontier forests helped form the nation’s character and shape its history, he said, and they should be protected from industrialization, such as mining, and other commercial development.“Americans still have that chance, more than many peoples,” he said.Four years later, Stegner’s words became the introduction to the Wilderness Act, a watershed policy that, in its own words, would “secure for the American people of present and future generations, the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness.”Signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on Sept. 3, 1964, the legislation set aside 9.1 million acres across 13 states, the largest sections of which were in Montana, California and Wyoming.Though Stegner and others were at the forefront of championing the cause, their efforts and eventual success were derived from the spirit of Robert Marshall.Marshall is widely considered the father of the wilderness preservation movement. As a forester and activist who spent time roaming throughout Northwest Montana, Marshall called for Americans “to fight for the freedom of the wilderness.” In 1935, he founded The Wilderness Society, which became the driving force behind the 1964 legislation. Marshall was never able to witness the milestone event. He suffered an untimely death at the age of 38. Yet his influence lived on. center_img Bob Marshall, pictured, founded The Wilderness Society and inspired the creation of the Wilderness Act. | Courtesy photo Emaillast_img read more

UK Border Force apologises for City of Derry delays

first_imgThe British Home Office has apologised after significant delays at City of Derry Airport this morning because no member of the UK Border Force was in place.An investigation has been launched into how there were no personnel on duty at passport control, meaning passengers from two flights could not be cleared.Some passengers experienced delays of over two hours this morning, because no Border Force personnel were on hand to meet flights which landed from Alicante and Birmingham.Passengers were not allowed leave the airport, and were accommodated in the baggage area until officers arrived to open passport control and clear the passengers for entry.In a statement issued from Stanstead Airport this evening, Border Force apologises for the delay experienced by passengers arriving at City of Derry Airport this morning.The statement said officers were deployed from Belfast International Airport as soon as they became aware of the issue, and all passengers were subsequently cleared. Security of the border is a priority, and the necessary passport checks have to be carried out.No explanation as to what happened has been offered, with the statement concluding that Border Force is investigating the circumstances of this incident.

GBI Investigating 10 Police Shootings In 11 Days

first_img Police across Georgia have shot 10 people in a recent 11-day period, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. That’s more than double the usual rate of excessive force cases the bureau is called in to investigate – two a week.“When you have so many that happen in such a short amount of time it is very taxing,” GBI spokesperson Rich Bahan said. “So we’ve had to reach out to other sister units within the bureau to come in and help out with the investigations.”Rich said investigators have been pulled from drug and gambling units to help with the high volume of police shooting cases.“Numbers-wise, we are about where we were with officer involved shootings this time last year,” Bahan said. “Up until about 10 days ago we thought maybe we were going to have fewer this year.”At least six out of the last 10 shootings have been fatal.

Rockfish Games: Building success, piece by piece

Rockfish Games: Building success, piece by pieceCEO Michael Schade on using digital platforms to take Everspace from publisher rejection to an audience of hundreds of thousandsMatthew HandrahanEditor-in-ChiefWednesday 31st January 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleROCKFISH GamesWhen Michael Schade thinks about his potential audience, he thinks in millions. In fact, he thinks in tens of millions; that’s the number of people with a stated interest in “space games” on Facebook, and that only includes those in Western markets.We are sitting at a table in the Games Industry Conference in Poznan, Poland, and the CEO and co-founder of the Hamburg-based developer Rockfish Games is walking me through a detailed, intricate method of finding new users through Facebook. Image composition, balance of colours, time of day, subtlety in copywriting; myriad factors are altered and tested, positive trends are pursued, and money tactically invested to reach, with certain ads, as much as 1.5 million people at a time.Space games in the broad sense, he says, have an audience of 100 million fans on Facebook. Schade doesn’t expect 100 million players for Rockfish’s own game, Everspace, but at a time when many indies see success as a roll of some invisible dice, Schade has found no end of encouragement from the precise targeting and visibility possible through platforms like Facebook. “It was a relief,” he says, recalling the moment he discovered that Everspace’s “peer group” of games had a fanbase roughly equivalent to the population of Egypt. “It was like, ‘Okay, maybe we can sell a few more.'””We were trying to keep that core team while adapting to free-to-play, and that didn’t work. At the end of the day we had to start from scratch” In truth, Rockfish has already sold plenty of copies of Everspace; upwards of 400,000 units at the last count. How it got to that position – one of comfort and stability for a studio with less than 20 employees – is an object lesson in how to set realistic goals and build an audience in the modern digital games business.Rockfish was founded by Schade and his business partner Christian Lohr in 2014. They had previously been the executive team in charge of Fishlabs, a studio that made a splash in the early days of the mobile boom with ambitious, highly polished titles like the Galaxy on Fire series. The studio was ultimately acquired by Deep Silver at the end of 2013, but not before it faltered in trying to keep pace with the mobile market’s shift from premium to free-to-play.”I failed to raise another funding round, because the expectation was, ‘Does this game have the potential to make $500,000 a day?’,” Schade recalls of seeking more financing for Galaxy on Fire’s freemium debut, Alliances. “I was telling all of those guys, ‘We’ll be happy if it makes $500,000 a month.’ So they said, ‘Sorry we’re not interested. Finish the coffee, take the cookie, on your way.'”As a handful of enormous free-to-play hits started to emerge, the commercial expectations of investors rose to unrealistic levels. “Theoretically, if you work with an investor you do have the creative freedom, but the problem is that being successful in the way that they define successful means following certain rules,” Schade adds. “Which is why a lot of those games are pretty similar… You have a couple of genres that work very well in free-to-play, that are very successful, and then you have a lot of people who try to replicate that.”Schade and Lohr left Fishlabs “without a dime” to show for their ten years at the company, but they did leave with one very important thing: a clear plan to start a new studio that would target PC and console, platforms where premium experiences were not regarded as a form of commercial suicide. A number of Fishlabs’ core team, who were also disillusioned with the move to free-to-play, followed along.Fishlabs is best known for its work on the Galaxy on Fire series”That was our DNA. That was us. That was our team,” Schade says. “We were trying to still keep that core team while adapting to free-to-play, and that didn’t work. At the end of the day we had to start from scratch. And you know what? In retrospect, that was the best thing that could have happened to us, because we’re now back in the game, and we’re doing exactly what we like doing, exactly what we’re passionate about.”As a visually striking space game, Everspace was very much an example of a team sticking to its core strengths. However, no sooner had Rockfish started pitching than the differences between mobile and PC/console became disarmingly clear. Fishlabs had built its reputation on making polished mobile games in classic PC and console genres, Schade says; it was now in the same market as the people and companies that had been working in those genres for decades, the same market that already had Elite: Dangerous, and was eagerly awaiting Star Citizen and No Man’s Sky.”We pitched it to all of the big guys at GDC 2015 and E3 2015. They liked it a lot. Everybody passed,” he says. “They saw the game, they liked the quality, and they knew because of our Galaxy on Fire history that we would be able to deliver a great space shooter. But all the publishers, pretty much, turned us down or passed on the opportunity because, A, there’s no multiplayer. And my impression was that publishers were at least not familiar with the roguelike genre. The producers were, and the producers liked it… In retrospect, I can say, ‘Good for us’.””Greenlight was a pre-Kickstarter to us, marketing-wise but also to get feedback from the community… It was a fantastic marketing tool” Schade can look back on the failure to land a publisher with positivity because it forced Rockfish to stay completely independent, and use Kickstarter to gauge interest and raise money. It helped, of course, that the team truly believed in its product, which combined a knack for fast gameplay and accessibility honed in mobile development with the roguelike element popular among core gamers. Schade, who focuses on marketing and PR for Rockfish, admits that he had “no clue on PC and console, whatsoever” at first, but having a game that truly excited him made the learning process quicker and easier.It also helped that Steam Greenlight still existed, a platform that could provide a skilled developer with “a million views for free” on the biggest distribution platform for PC gamers. “It was thumbs up, thumbs down, and if the game didn’t look like utter garbage you get your thumbs up,” he recalls of the service Valve shut down a year ago. “The most difficult thing is getting that visibility… You don’t get that initial ramp up any more.”It also helped us to run a successful Kickstarter. We used Greenlight first; to work on our pitch and make the pitch for our Kickstarter better, to collect addresses, sign people up for our newsletter. For us, that worked really well. Greenlight was a pre-Kickstarter to us, so to speak, marketing-wise but also to get feedback from the community… It was a fantastic marketing tool.”Schade laments the death of Steam Greenlight, and he admits that running a successful Kickstarter will be more difficult in its absence – particularly as a failed Kickstarter will cause developers “a very big problem” when attempting to find a publisher or secure financing later on. Rockfish had no such issues, though, raising €420,000 from almost 11,000 backers in August 2015.From that point, Schade set about finding ways of drawing more people to Everspace, steadily building its audience from those 11,000 Kickstarter backers. It is clear that – the oft-cited need for a good game aside – persistent and attentive marketing has been absolutely essential to the progress made in the two years since then. That includes the bewilderingly detailed approach to Facebook described in the introduction of this article, and the striking reach of platforms like Imgur and Reddit that Schade outlined in a talk at Ludicious 2017 – 16 million views for a series of animated GIFs that cost nothing to produce. Schade describes a game by another developer at GIC; a game he clearly admires, but one made by a team with no knowledge of how to raise awareness, how to build an audience, how to gain that all-important visibility. “To me that’s not a surprise, because there’s eight of them and they’re all developing on the game,” he says. “At Rockfish, my partner [Christian Lohr] runs the studio and I take care of marketing and sales. I’m not part of that core development team, but I can take care of all the marketing and PR stuff.”Everspace has now sold well over 200,000 units, and is on 400,000 Steam WishlistsSchade engaged (and continues to engage) with these platforms on a weekly, sometimes daily basis, slowly building a picture of how best to make use of each one. Indeed, Schade describes the process of building Everspace’s community as one of constant revelation; dozens of small, essential observations that can only come from constantly poking and prodding platforms like Imgur, Reddit and Facebook. Twitch is a perfect example, he says, its combination of gameplay, video and rapidly scrolling chat-stream immediately confusing, but impossible to ignore because Rockfish’s Kickstarter backers were already streaming its game.”Then we had the connection. I saw how passionately streamers played our game, and talked about our game,” he says. “Slowly, I got what it was all about.”Schade started watching every stream he could, announcing that the development team was in the chat and inviting questions from the audience. Rockfish then selected a handful of “best pilots” and gave them free Steam Early Access keys (where Everspace launched in September 2016) to gift to their viewers.”I’ve been running my own studio for the last 24 years, and this is the first time we’re truly independent – by definition” “Doing that very selectively made each one special, and that drove a lot of traffic to them [the streamers],” he says. “We worked our way up from streamers with 50 or 100 viewers to, when Everspace hit full release, with CohhCarnage. In the morning he played PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, with 12,000 people watching, then he played Everspace. We were on the frontpage of Switch. It was fantastic. I couldn’t reach out to him directly, but I found out who his mods were and continuously gave them keys, to keep him streaming it.”At Ludicious, Schade emphasised constant presence as a key to effective marketing for indies. “If something goes viral you don’t go to sleep,” he said. “If a question comes up [from the US west coast] you have to answer it immediately. If you answer the next day the crowd has gone.” He reiterates the same point now; opportunities like this are there for any developer, but you’ll never find them if you aren’t looking.”You have to see them,” he adds, “and then you have to do the right thing.”Everspace launched on the Xbox Preview Program and Windows 10 UWP at the same time as Steam Early Access, all part of the drive to increase the profile of the game as much as possible. It was a lot of work, Schade admits, with a huge amount of development going on across a very busy six months.”But then again we get all of that visibility,” he says. “It’s not like you see a game and then immediately buy it; you buy a game because you see it a couple of times, you have a continuously positive impression, and sooner or later it’s at a price you’re willing to pay and you go for it… The UWP, Xbox Game Preview stuff was a lot of effort, it put us under pressure, but in the end I think we got that right.”Indeed, Everspace received “six-digit figure downloads” in the space of two months in Xbox Preview, not to mention giving the team some valuable console experience that will feed into a “very polished” PlayStation 4 version that will launch this year. And with every step Everspace has grown in popularity: 11,000 copies were tied to Kickstarter donations across 30 days, 30,000 copies were sold in the first month on Early Access, and that jumped to 40,000 units in four weeks when it officially launched in May 2017.

When Schade says “we can sell a few more” he means it, and if that happens it won’t be because of a roll of the dice.”We’re very confident for our next beat, for the expansion that’s coming, for future sales. We’re going to be fine. It gives you a lot of confidence,” he says. “I’ve been running my own studio, with my partner and the team, for the last 24 years, and this is the first time we’re truly independent – by definition. “We do only what we think is right for the game, we self-publish, and financially we don’t have any investors on an equity basis. We’re even in a comfortable situation where we can fund a junior team working on a new title – which won’t be a space game, for a change.”Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

JournoDevSwap 2019: Day Three

first_imgJournoDevSwap 2019: Day ThreeIt’s the final push – and the reveal of the winnersWill FreemanSunday 29th September 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareThe JournoDevSwap game jam is over. Our journalists-turned-developers had just four hours to complete their projects, while a fresh wave of developers-turned-journalists arrived to cover their efforts.Plus, our developer judges spent time with each of the games to decide who would be taking home the coveted trophy. This year’s winner is Alysia Judge and Saul Barrerre with their narrative title Lost For Words.In case you missed the build-up to today’s finale, you can read the first and second wave of reports through the links and below you can read up on everything that happened in the jam’s closing hours.How Does It Feel To Make a Game… When You Don’t Know How To Make a Game?By AJ Grand-Scrutton, Dlala StudiosWhen I was approached by Will, a few weeks back, I was excited to be part of this but had no idea what I was going to write about. The day comes around (today) and I still had no idea. Looking at the posts from the previous two days there are articles with substance and a real clear vision on what they are trying to communicate.I rolled in a couple of hours late, still massively lacking any real vision for what I wanted to accomplish. I had a couple of loose ideas about pulling together a couple of questions, asking every team those questions and picking out different answers from different teams to throw together in an article. Effectively letting the teams do the heavy lifting for me and ‘phoning in’ the actual writing; but it felt like a cop out – because it was one. Then whilst I was setting up Julia Hardy (TV, radio, live host and vlogger) came over to grab some leftover pizza and we got chatting. She mentioned about how she is conscious of the fact that she is usually the one doing the critiquing, not the making. I found it really interesting how it’s not something I really thought about. How does it feel creating a game when your job usually focuses on a completely different aspect of the industry?Teams got to work straight away this morning, as they only had four hours to complete their gamesSomething that gets spoken about by a lot by game developers – often designers – is how after you’ve been doing the job for a while it changes your view on games you’re playing for pleasure. You start analysing things, pulling out the ideas you really like, commenting on aspects you would have done differently and at times the pleasure aspect can get lost. What I’d never thought about was how it felt going in from the other direction. How would our writers feel, after spending so long analysing games, actually having to create one?One of my favourite quotes of the day came from speaking to James Batchelor (UK editor of GamesIndustry.biz). I just wanted to chat to him about how he found the experience overall. One of the nice things about chatting with James is that he always speaks with real passion. It was clear that he was very proud of what he – and his team – had accomplished. I was then very surprised to hear him say that he feels like he wouldn’t want to make a game again. He was glad he had done it, but if anything it had made him miss writing. When we pushed a little deeper onto the ‘why’ of this feeling he gave an incredible example.”It is incredibly easy, when making video games is your career, to take for granted the different aspects in which we receive gratification for” “When I’m writing every word feels like progress. Whatever the word is, it’s still progress. With a game you can work for hours and hours on something and it can make only the smallest change in the background.”It is incredibly easy, when making video games is your career, to take for granted the different aspects in which we receive gratification for. As a programmer I always loved the pay-off of the ‘solving the puzzle’ side of things, but I hated the feelings of frustration that always came before it. I knew I no longer wanted to be a programmer when I felt that the feeling of reward was no longer gratifying, and that the feelings of frustration were taking up most of my time. For our journalist they went in with the drive to create something, but not necessarily the passion for each of the individual aspects. Part of the magic of game jam’s is that you get to work with people you haven’t worked with before and get to learn a lot from the experiences of others. With JournoDevSwap it took this magic and pushed it into a completely different perspective. As well as being for an important cause, I think one thing JournoDevSwap highlighted for me was that we can all benefit from getting in each other’s shoes once in a while. Whether it’s for a good cause, for fun or just for some perspective.Journos Turned Devs?By Andy Green, Bossa StudiosIt’s easy to slip into the mindset of thinking you know how to do someone else’s job, especially if it looks easy. Take photography; over recent years as cameras have become so cheap and readily available – everyone’s a photographer. The average person would be forgiven for assuming they can take a good photo, and the thousands of amateur photographers posting their work online to an often-high standard show there’s an element of truth to this.Journalism or writing is only putting together words, surely? Most people can get ideas down in a blog post and publish them cheaply and quickly for the world to see. We all also have at least taken a GCSE English (or generation-appropriate equivalent) exam at school. So anyone can write…Now take some journalists with their ‘easy’ day job and ask them to make a game – wait, that’s not so easy. I’ve been making games a reasonable amount of time, and the idea of getting totally green game journalists and pairing them with a single (albeit talented) games development student to make a game in two days sounds kind of mad to me.This year’s cohort of developer-journalists and their student partnersOn my way into the UKIE offices this morning, I was expecting everyone to be in early and throwing any old garbage into Unity in a blind panic to finish something for the deadline. I was going to swan around all of the teams talking about the pitfalls of scoping games correctly and reassuring teams that they’d done well given the circumstances, and to never give up.I was also preparing myself for the reality that I was going to be that person. That person who tries to talk to these panic-stricken developers in the 11th hour. “Andy Green, GamesIndustry.biz. Can I get a quote from you about your game?” I’d ask, only to be returned with either distant sleep-deprived stares, or angry grunts. Afterall at this point during the game jam, you’re treading the thin line between game and hardly functional mess.”The idea of totally green game journalists with a single (albeit talented) student making a game in two days sounds kind of mad to me” Arriving at 08:55 – and being the first person to the game jam this morning – surprised me. I waited patiently until Leon, Member Relations Officer for UKIE let me in, only to have a couple of students turn up shortly after me, I began to wonder what was going on, was there even a game jam happening? As people began to filter in and I got chatting to games journalist Laura Kate-Dale, I was greeted cheerily with “Oh our game’s playable already, can we show you it?”.Thinking this might be a fluke one-off, I spoke to other jam participants and found that actually, we had most teams pretty close to completion already. In fact, the vast majority of teams were more than happy to talk to me about their nearly finished games. The atmosphere was calm, almost serene – there was hardly any drama to unearth here.Maybe making games is easy, and I’ve just been terrible at it all of this time? What’s the secret to this ere atmosphere of calm? After some pleasantries at the beginning of the day I began to work my way around the teams in order to find out if they were genuinely finished, or simply just missing something.Winners Alysia Judge and Saul BarrereUpon starting my professional interviews with the would-be game developers, the real reasons started to become clear. There’s clearly some talented students (responsible adults) helping, and as it turns out, games journalists know a little bit about video games. Starting to fear for my professional safety, I began to crack on and dig into this a little more.Speaking with journalists Leon and Dominic Sacco I began to realise that this wasn’t their first flirtation with games development. Both of these talented gentlemen had junctures in their lives where they’d questioned the prospect of game development verses games journalism before. I found Leon during his education wasn’t even aware there was a pathway into games development (as no formal route existed in the 90s), and Dominic had strayed away from the idea of games development because of his own concerns over his mathematical ability, favouring English instead.Yet these individuals seemed perfectly at home in context of this game jam. Leon as it turns out is handy with a portable midi controller, and is a criminal in the field of starting to make games yet never finishing using Gamemaker. Dominic’s a self-described perfectionist, and produced the pixel art for their game from scratch, along with sourcing music for the game jam after finding it quite troublesome converting some of his own past music into chip tunes himself.Laura and Alysia Judge became the creative leads for their respective projects taking their experiences from writing and their (un)healthy interest in games. Specifically scoping the project appropriately seemed to be keen takeaways from my talk with them. “Don’t build Skyrim” Alysia quipped to me cheerily, instantly destroying one of my key pieces of advice to the would-be developers. Laura offered me a good insight into why as journalists they were keen to avoid some common early game-development pitfalls. She attributed this fear of the feature creep too many an interview with developers who’d stressed the importance of finishing games, and telling horror stories of having eyes bigger than their proverbial stomachs.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans! North West Amiqus GamesJunior Video Editor – GLOBAL publisher United Kingdom Amiqus GamesDiscover more jobs in games BBC 5live’s Adam Rosser delivered me the words of wisdom “A good man always knows his limitations”. Sage advice I thought, before he then quickly told me he was quoting Dirty Harry… Adam’s one of the journo-devs with a more diverse background. And whilst hosting a games podcast, he admits to me “I can’t pitch my interviews at a hard-core audience”. Despite this he too has taken a hands-on approach to being a creative lead on his team, now citing a newly found respect for game development. I mentioned to him the notion of modern game development tools democratising the process – something which he’d said many-a-dev had explained to him – yet now only with the experience he’d begun to understand.My last professional interview of the day was James Batchelor, my new boss. Prior to the jam he was an absolute game-dev novice, but he took (well deserved) pride in listing to me the frankly astonishing list of skills he’d learnt specifically during this jam. Animation, programming, level design – I was once again adjusting my proverbial collar, it was getting hot in here after all… James clearly took pity on my newly concerned state and for my own sense of professional wellbeing let me know of his newly found respect for game developers, especially indies.What the eight teams present achieved over the past two days has genuinely impressed me. The unflappable responsible adults (students and programmers) helping these not-so-hapless journalists make a selection of surprisingly compete, well scoped and creative games has made me think that I need to be more humble next salary review. I’ve still got a chance However.

Greg Kuti and Prudence Capture $5,000 Hunter Derby in Ottawa

first_imgGreg Kuti of Schomberg, ON, riding Prudence won the $5,000 Jump Canada Hunter Derby held Saturday evening, August 14, during the CSI2* National Capital Show Jumping Tournament at the Nepean National Equestrian Park in Ottawa, ON.The $5,000 Jump Canada Hunter Derby attracted stiff competition as a total of 35 entries vied for victory, as well as an Antares ‘Spooner’ saddle, donated by Antares Canada Inc., which was awarded to the winner.The $5,000 Jump Canada Hunter Derby consisted of a series of fences with no related distances, and competitors had the choice of completing the course at a height of either 3’ or 3’6. Held on the grass grand prix field at the Nepean National Equestrian Park, riders had to navigate their mounts through a roll back turn, a jump on the peak of a steep bank, and through a grob ditch.The judges were looking for the horse that exemplified the style, movement and manner that typifies hunter competition. Following the first round of competition, the judges invited eight horse-rider combinations back for a second round of competition. The riders’ second round scores were added together with their first round scores to produce the winner.“I am looking for form, pace, quality and performance,” said senior judge Peter Van Guysling of New York. “The horse has to be a good jumper, and have a good attitude. It has to be a horse you would want to fox hunt on and enjoy.”Senior judge Christine Renwick of Ottawa, ON, agreed.“The fox hunt is what the hunter discipline is based on,” said Renwick, who actively rides with the Ottawa Valley Hunt.That horse proved to be Prudence, an eight-year-old chestnut selle francais mare piloted by Kuti and owned by Carolynne Jardine. Jardine purchased Prudence last fall from Eric Lamaze’s Torrey Pines Stable in Schomberg, ON. The pair scored an impressive 85 out of a possible 100 points in the first round, and went on the match their score in the second round for a total of 170 points.“It was so much fun!” exclaimed Kuti, who operates Chor-Be Farm in Schomberg, ON. “It feels so good to win, especially at such a fantastic venue: it is one of the last premiere facilities in North America.“The course designer, Tracy Howard, did a great job; she was creative but kept it simple,” continued Kuti. “I am so proud of Prudence, she is just a very special horse; a real lady. This was our first hunter derby, but we hope to do more.”Kuti was also proud to lay claim to the Antares saddle, saying, “The Antares is one of the nicest saddles in the entire world to ride in.”David Marion, President of Antares Canada Inc., said of sponsorship of the $5,000 Jump Canada Hunter Derby, “I wanted to do something to support the event. “It was nice to donate a prize for an amateur division, as they do not always get recognized, and support the sport from the ground up. Plus, Greg’s round was perfect; he really deserved to win the Antares saddle. I could not be more pleased with how it turned out.”Placing second in the $5,000 Jump Canada Hunter Derby was Taylor’s Design, owned and ridden by Taylor Mulligan. The pair came close to catching Kuti, posting scores of 84 in the first round and 83 in the second, for a total of 167.Landing in third position was Winston, ridden by Carly Campbell- Cooper and owned by Triple C Stables of Elora, ON. Receiving a score of 82 in the first round and 84 in the second round, the pair finished only one point behind the runner-up with a score of 166.The Jump Canada Hunter Derby is a new event introduced by Jump Canada to give recognition and build support for hunter competition.“I’m thrilled that we were chosen to host this event,” said Ainsley Hayes, National Capital Show Jumping Tournament Event Manager. “We have one of the best grand prix fields in North America, so why should the jumpers get to use it exclusively? There was a huge turn-out, which shows that the Hunter Derby is a growing trend. People are really excited about it.”The two-week National Capital Show Jumping Tournament runs from August 11-15 and 18-22 at the Nepean National Equestrian Park, conveniently located at the 417 Queensway and Moodie Drive.

Major US retailers tell landlords they can’t pay rent

first_imgSubway sent its landlords a “force majeure” letter last week (Photo by Mikko Robles/NurPhoto via Getty Images)Big chain retailers and restaurants are putting their landlords on notice.Both U.S. and international chains are informing their landlords that they need to reduce rent or cut payments, Bloomberg reported.Last week, Mattress Firm, which has about 2,400 stores, initially sent a notice to landlords offering to extend its leases in exchange for a break on rent. But this week the chain sent a second notice walking back its previous offer and informing landlords that due to widespread stores closures it would not be able to pay rent.Subway sent its landlords a “force majeure” letter last week, The Real Deal was the first to report, noting that it would either be paying reduced or no rent on its 20,000 U.S. locations.ADVERTISEMENTSimilarly, Swedish retailer Hennes & Mauritz AB has shuttered about two-thirds of its 5,000 stores globally and has reached out to its landlords to discuss options, according to Bloomberg.Read moreRetailers tell landlords they could stop paying rent soonNYC storefronts begin boarding up as virus empties streetsJacob Chetrit pulls out of $815M Daily News building deal; SL Green keeps his $35M deposit Some landlords are responding to the ongoing closure of storefronts due to the coronavirus pandemic by proactively offering breaks to retail tenants, according to the report.

IHF reaction on #DontPlayThePlayers: We are open for discussion

first_imgPingback: IHF reaction on #DontPlayThePlayers: We are open for discussion — Sport Land Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. 1 Comment ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsInternational Handball Federation put statement on official website as reaction on #DontPlayThePlayers campaign launched by European Union of Handball Players.Take a look on it…The players are the International Handball Federation’s main resource and the IHF is always open for discussion and to examine new proposals. Their health is the IHF’s priority.  ReviewIHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa how to reduce the workload of the players on the part of the IHF during the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championship in Germany and Denmark and put an initiative forward at the General Assembly of Forum Club Handball (FCH) on 26 January in Hamburg, Germany where the clubs were asked whether or not they would agree on a longer World Championship period, so that more rest days could be included. The FCH General Assembly unanimously agreed to his proposal. Dr Moustafa thus presented it to the IHF Council at their meeting in Herning, Denmark on 28 January 2019 and the IHF Council decided to increase the number of rest days.Match scheme / rest daysAs mentioned above, the players’ health is a priority at the IHF. For this reason, the IHF is working closely together with the European Handball Federation, aiming to have an international calendar which puts the athletes first. The IHF is willing to meet with the players’ representatives, discuss the matter and work on a solution together. Taking a look at IHF events, the increase of the number of teams to 32 at World Championships, which was decided by the IHF Council in their meeting on 18 October 2018, was introduced with one of the main reasons being that a new match scheme could be applied – a schedule with more rest days, designed to protect the players’ health. The IHF introduced a new schedule for senior events from 2021 on. In the new system, there are no more back-to-back matches and the maximum number of matches per team is reduced. At first glance, it does not seem logical that a team has less matches if the overall number of teams increases, but, with the new match scheme, the maximum number of matches per team has been reduced from ten to nine.The IHF believes that the new schedule is providing many good opportunities but is always open to receive further proposals. However, it is also clear that there are many interests to be taken into consideration and with the new schedule, a good solution was found.Additional changes and size of squad to be analysedFurthermore, the IHF analysed the feedback from the national federations as well as some players which was received with regard to the 2019 Men’s World Championship in Germany and Denmark. As a result, the possibility of additional changes in the squad is being considered as well as an increase in the number of players per team to give the coach the options to give more rest to the players.Amending the IHF Rules of the GameMoreover, in order to reduce the rather aggressive physical contact, thus reducing the risk of injuries, the IHF referees received new guidelines, which have been applied since the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.Due to the high acceptance of the new guidelines on the part of the players, handball was ranked number two with regards to the spectators at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which was a fantastic result. The players have shown the beauty of the sport of handball to the world and in return, handball got an outstanding result.Athletes’ representation within the IHFAs for the voice of the athletes, the IHF is always willing to listen. The players are represented by the IHF Athletes’ Commission, which is chaired by Gro Hammerseng-Edin, one of the best Norwegian players and IHF Player of the Year 2007. The Athletes’ Commission is very committed and makes sure that the players’ interests are always taken into consideration. The IHF is the only International Sports Federation which determined in their criteria for election to the Athletes’ Commission that the player must be active in order to have a person in this important position who knows the situation of the players on the field. It is much better than having persons responsible who stopped their careers many years ago. Gro Hammerseng-Edin was voted into the Commission during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games together with Diego Simonet (ARG), Mouna Chebbah (TUN), Igor Vori (CRO) and Cristina Neagu (ROU). Overall, 94.6% of the 336 athletes competing in the 2016 Olympic Games took part in the voting. The Chairperson of the Athletes Commission represents the voice of the players on the IHF Council, as long as he/she is an active player, according to an IHF Council decision taken at their meeting in August 2017.Insurance / Financial supportThe IHF pays a compensation to the National Federations, which in turn forward this amount to the clubs of the players as a compensation for the release of the players to the National Federation in order for them to take part in the World Championships – this system has been applied since 2011 for Men’s World Championships and since 2013 for Women’s World Championships. In addition, the IHF is having a loss-of-salary insurance for the case that a player is getting injured during a World Championship. Hence, the IHF is taking precautions taking different aspects into consideration: the technical and financial factors as well as the aspects of health and rules.  On 1 April, the IHF received a letter from the European Handball Players Union (EHPU) asking for a meeting and explaining the current situation in handball from the players’ point of view. As usual, the IHF President welcomes the proposal of a meeting and is convinced that meetings on a regular basis should be carried out in order to improve.In conclusion, the IHF is always on the move with regard to the players’ health. Therefore, initiatives and actions were considered and decided upon long before receiving any petition or request. It is the IHF’s obligation to continuously analyse not only the development of handball but also the impact of this development on our main resource, the players. 1 Comment ShareTweetShareShareEmail Related Items:last_img read more

Trump announces departure of chief economist Hassett

first_imgKnown for his consistently upbeat demeanor, he strongly supported Trump’s idea that the economy can achieve a sustained 3 percent annual growth.More recently, he helped Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, write the president’s new immigration plan, unveiled last month, which is still being put into bill form. The emerging legislation, which boosts security at the southern border and pushes the nation to admit more high-skilled, well-educated immigrants, rather than immigrants who enter the U.S. based on family ties, is expected to be released in the coming days.Hassett, a former scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, wasn’t a perfect fit for Trump’s ideology, given his free-trade inclinations and his past writings on the benefits of immigration. But he avoided becoming the target of Trump’s wrath during his tenure.The Council of Economic Advisers serves as the in-house economic analysis operation for the White House. It helps produce the annual Economic Report of the President and serves as the main liaison between the West Wing and the economic data offices at the labor and commerce departments and other federal agencies.Hassett’s replacement will have to be confirmed by the Senate.Trump will return to the U.S. next weekend. President Donald Trump announced Sunday night that Kevin Hassett, his chief economist and a prominent promoter of the president’s tax cuts, will be stepping down from his position, with a replacement to be named soon.“Kevin Hassett, who has done such a great job for me and the Administration, will be leaving shortly,” Trump, who is visiting the U.K., said in a tweet. “His very talented replacement will be named as soon as I get back to the U.S. I want to thank Kevin for all he has done – he is a true friend!”Hassett, who was confirmed as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers in September 2017, has been one of the more traditionally conservative voices in the White House and one of the few prominent economists in Trump’s circle.

I thought the end product was just phenomenal.“Using Daytona 500 fans and champions to promote the 60th running of the Daytona 500 is a perfect mix of competition on track and fan experience we’ve been talking about for years.“This is a prime example of pushing the envelope and really melding the drivers of the sport and stars of sports with the fans who keep the sport going with the passion they have behind it.”Wile says there is much to look forward to as the track prepares a proper celebration of its six decades of celebrated competition.“We’re ultra-focused on making sure the 60th is special and this is one more example of doing that,” Wile said.last_img read more

Prototype Specialized SL3 ‘Project Black’ Roubaix Spotted at Paris Roubaix

first_imgJames Huang over at BikeRadar captured some pics of a prototype Specialized ‘Project Black’ bike that’s looking to be a 2011 S-Works Roubaix, likely with the SL3 moniker.  They’ve got a full gallery of photos (including both of these, which are ©James Huang/BikeRadar) and speculation, but here are the Cliff’s Notes on visible improvements and changes over the current SL2 version:Internal derailleur and rear brake housing with caps that should make it Di2 internal wiring compatible.Larger Zertz damper inserts in both the seat stays and fork legs.Seat tube gets much wider, squarer toward the bottom bracket.Huge downtube flows more consistently (smoothly) under the BB for larger overall cross section.Thinner seatstays, but HUGE chainstays.Miniscule alloy rear dropouts.Specialized has hinted they’ll be showing a couple new items, including at least one frame and some tires, at Sea Otter, but I doubt they’ll be showing this bad boy off so early.  The Paris-Roubaix is this coming Sunday, April 11, and the bike you see here will be piloted by Saxobank’s Stuart O’Grady.  Watch the race on Versus at 6pm EST.last_img read more

ITU awards 2022 Multisport World Championships to Ibiza

first_img Related The Executive Board of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) has decided to award the island of Ibiza, Spain, as the host of the 2022 World Triathlon Multisport Championships. The Mediterranean island, which hosted the European version of the championships in 2018, will welcome triathletes from all over the world for 10 days of racing.“The Multisport World Championships has been incredibly successful in the last few years since we launched this product, and we have seen not only a great interest from cities to bid to host this event, but also from athletes willing to compete,” said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado.“And we are extremely proud of Ibiza willing to host this event, as a clear proof of the legacy of our events, returning to the island only a few years after hosting the European event.”The World Championships will see duathlon, long distance triathlon, aquathon and cross triathlon championship races organized together during a week-long festival. This allows for athletes to compete in various multisport races, as opposed to electing only one each season. And participants can even vie for the ‘Multisport Legend’, a title reserved for those who compete in all four events.Ibiza was elected after presenting its bid to the members of the ITU Executive Board, who had the opportunity to compare the proposal from the Spanish island and from the city of Pesaro, in Italy, which was ‘encouraged to continue bidding in future editions’.The World Triathlon Multisport Championships made its debut in the ITU calendar in 2017 in Penticton (Canada). This was followed by Fyn (Denmark) in 2018 and Pontevedra (Spain) in 2019. Next year the event will travel to the city of Almere (Netherlands), to be followed by Townsville (Australia) in 2021.www.triathlon.orglast_img read more

Home of the Second Chance: ‘We don’t judge; We help’

first_imgby. Adam MertzOver the last seven years, St. Louis Community Credit Union has gained prominence for its ambitious and solution-driven approach to serving low- and modest-income consumers in a market full of them.The $237 million asset credit union, which boasts 51,712 members, won the 2013 CUNA Community Credit Union of the Year award among institutions under $250 million in assets. Paul Woodruff, vice president of community development for St. Louis Community, discusses with Credit Union Magazine the philosophies that have earned the credit union respect throughout the movement.Credit Union Magazine: Why did St. Louis Community CU dial up its efforts to serve the underserved?Woodruff: We were turning away hundreds of people a month who wanted access to the mainstream accounts, but they couldn’t get it. We also started to see an increase in members who used payday loans and lenders, which strips wealth out of the community.If there’s no alternative to that, people are going to keep using those services, and make the situation even worse. And a part of that is, if they’ve got loan obligations with us, and all their money’s being taken by the payday lenders, that’s a losing proposition for our institution. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Migrant workers find an ally in California

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr CU takes measures to protect this vulnerable population.For Roxy Ostrem, the last straw was when the check-cashing truck pulled up to the edge of the Boskovich Farm in 2010, enticing migrant workers with quick cash, only to supply them with a raft of counterfeit bills.That’s when Ostrem—the farm’s quality control manager, chair of the Ventura County Credit Union (VCCU) board of directors, and co-founder of the World Council of Credit Unions’ Global Women’s Leadership Network—decided it was high time to protect this largely unbanked population.VCCU leapt into action with an aggressive outreach program spearheaded by CEO Joe Schroeder and Ostrem. It has made a giant impact in the agricultural hotbed, which relies heavily on migrant workers to churn out $2 billion of berries and other produce annually.“We just said, ‘Enough is enough,’” explains Natalie Bradley, community development manager for the $660 million asset credit union in Ventura, Calif.The credit union promises to break down more barriers in coming years after expanding in 2013 to serve five additional employer groups and a sizable population of indigenous workers from Mexico. continue reading »last_img read more

Military credit unions cast watchful eye on DoD Lending Rule

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Marc RapportCredit unions and the military have a long shared history, and financial institutions based on bases are paying particular attention to proposed new rules some worry could limit how they extend credit to credit-challenged service members.Now in the comment phase, here’s how the changes are described in the September announcement from the Department of Defense “The new proposed actions are designed to apply the protections of the Military Lending Act to all forms of payday loans, vehicle title loans, refund anticipation loans, deposit advance loans, installment loans, unsecured open-end lines of credit, and credit cards.”The NCUA says the changes go beyond that agency’s own rules and could shut down some alternative lending programs that credit unions currently offer service members. Military-focused credit unions generally say they’re in a wait-and-see mode on the new rules, and several told creditunions.com their products wouldn’t run afoul of the new rules anyway.However, many are working with the trades and the DoD to offer input and limit the potential fallout from the rules, which could take effect sometime next year. A leader in that effort says credit unions on and around military installations already do the right thing, especially in protecting members against predatory lenders. “We feel the rules in place today have been effective,” says Arty Arteaga, president/CEO of the Defense Credit Union Council. continue reading »last_img read more

News Scan for Dec 27, 2019

first_imgThree MERS cases confirmed in Qatar’s capitalQatar has reported three more MERS cases to the World Health Organization (WHO), the WHO said yesterday. The three cases are related, and all case-patients are from Doha.The first case-patient is a 67-year-old woman who developed symptoms of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection at the end of November, and died on Dec 12. The source of her illness is still under investigation.”The patient had neither a history of contact with dromedary camels nor recent travel. Follow up and screening of seven household contacts and 40 healthcare worker contacts is ongoing and two asymptomatic secondary cases have been identified so far,” the WHO said.The woman’s son, age 50, and a 32-year-old case contact have also been diagnosed as having MERS-CoV. Both patients were asymptomatic and identified during contact tracing. The WHO said a total of 47 identified contacts of the patient have been monitored daily for the appearance of respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms for a period of 2 weeks following their last exposure to the patient.From 2012 through Nov 30, 2019, a total of 2,494 laboratory-confirmed MERS-CoV cases and 858 associated deaths have been reported to the WHO, the vast majority in Saudi Arabia.Dec 26 WHO report Six countries report more polio cases; WHO extends polio emergencyIn the latest global polio developments, Afghanistan and Pakistan reported more wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) cases, and four African nations reported more circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) cases, according to totals reflected on the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) tables, which include data reported as of Dec 24.The GPEI didn’t publish its full report with paralysis onsets, noting that the weekly updates will resume on Jan 9.ProMED Mail, the online reporting system of the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) compiled a report on the recent cases compared to the previous weekly polio totals. It said for WPV1 cases, Afghanistan has two more, one each from Fara and Kandahar provinces, raising its total for the year to 26. Pakistan has 10 more cases from Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Sindh, and Islamabad provinces, pushing its number for 2019 to 111.Meanwhile, four African countries reported five new cVDPV2 cases, including two from Angola and one each from Central African Republic, Chad, and Ethiopia.GPEI WPV1 cases as of Dec 24 GPEI vaccine-derived polio cases as of Dec 24 Dec 26 ProMED Mail postIn other polio developments, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) polio emergency committee met for the 23rd time on Dec 11, and after hearing from experts and representatives from polio-affected countries unanimously agreed that the risk of international spread remains a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).The WHO said in a Dec 20 statement on the deliberations that the committee voiced grave concerns about the significant rise in WPV1 cases this year, along with widespread transmission, vaccine refusal, and detection of vaccine-derived cases in Pakistan and challenging security and inaccessibility problems in Afghanistan.Regarding vaccine-derived polio, the group said multiple outbreaks in four of the WHO regions are very concerning, noting that since its last meeting, seven new countries have reported outbreaks. WHO emergency committees typically meet every 3 months or sooner if needed.Dec 20 WHO statement WHO details yellow fever outbreak in MaliThe WHO yesterday released more details about a yellow fever outbreak in Mali that has so far resulted in three confirmed cases, plus nine suspected and three probable infections.The initial case-patient is a 15-year-old girl from Koulikoro region who had not traveled outside of her district and had not been vaccinated. The other confirmed infections are in two men ages 17 and 25 from Ivory Coast who are living in Bouguimi district in Mali’s Sikasso region. Two of the people with confirmed infections died.The suspected and probable cases are all from Bouguimi district, and there are three deaths among the suspected infections.The WHO said mass yellow fever campaigns have been underway in Mali since 2008, but coverage is still below herd immunity thresholds and there are pockets of low immunity, with high population movements within and outside of the country possibly diluting population immunity.The district where the first patient is from is near Bamako, Mali’s capital and home to 2 million people. The district where the two other patients lived is near the Ivory Coast border. The WHO said the risk of yellow fever spread within Mali due to disease activity is high, the risk of regional spread is moderate, and the threat of global spread is low.Dec 26 WHO statement Dec 9 CIDRAP news scan “Health officials confirm 3 yellow fever cases in Mali, Ivory Coast”last_img read more

UAE to Host Third International Counter Piracy Conference

first_imgThe UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, global ports operator DP World and Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) announce they are co-convening the third international counter-piracy conference in Dubai on 11-12 September. Their joint hosting of the conference demonstrates the vital importance of public and private sector coordination in the fight against maritime piracy both on and off shore.More than 500 participants comprising foreign ministers, senior government officials, executives of global maritime-sector companies, and leading experts will convene for the two-day event entitled: Countering Maritime Piracy: Continued Efforts for Regional Capacity Building.Building capacity in the region includes addressing piracy in the short term through effective security initiatives, including co-ordination between international navies and merchant vessels, and longer term initiatives that support the development of local economies.The humanitarian impact of piracy on seafarers and their families continues to be a focus, and a highlight of this year’s conference will be a discussion with Captain Juwaid Saleem, a former captive of pirates in Somalia, and his family, who will share their experiences. Captain Juwaid and his crew were held for more than two years and his two daughters featured in a documentary premiered at last year’s conference highlighting the humanitarian cost of piracy, when he was still a prisoner. He and seven of his crew were released six weeks after the 2012 conference; the remaining 15 crew members are still missing in Somalia.Key themes of the conference will include:• Continuing to build awareness of the humanitarian and economic cost of piracy, including support for seafarers;• Injecting new momentum in the search for an effective and enduring solution to piracy through collaboration across political, military, financial and legal sectors;• Encouraging a comprehensive approach that can deliver a long term sustainable solution to counter piracy, including land-based solutions;• Highlighting cooperation between industry and government sectors through joint strategies emphasising sustainable long-term solutionsHis Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs, said: “While the international community has made great strides in fighting piracy off the coast of Somalia, the UAE believes that maritime piracy, notably in the Gulf of Aden and the western Indian Ocean, remains of serious global concern. We are convinced that successfully countering piracy can only be achieved if the international community enhances its efforts to build capacity in the region. With that in mind, we have chosen “Countering Maritime Piracy: Continued Efforts for Regional Capacity Building” as the theme for this year’s conference.”His Excellency Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said: ”I am delighted that DP World will again play a major role in continuing the dialogue on countering piracy. We all continue to be affected by the ramifications of piracy and it is vital that we keep the issue on the radar so that public and private sector remedies can be implemented both now and for future generations. We at DP World, together with our industry colleagues from around the world, look forward to cementing the achievements of previous conferences and discussing building capacity in the region, analysing state legitimacy issues and seeking long term solutions to the problem.”His Excellency, H.E Dr. Sultan Ahmad Al Jaber, Chairman ADPC, added: “Abu Dhabi Ports Company is pleased to continue to support the efforts of industry and governments around the world to counter maritime piracy at this event.“While much has been achieved through the last two conferences and the number of incidents has dropped – the pirate groups still exist, the threat is still present and the devastating human consequences of pirate attack or armed robbery at sea still remains.“We applaud the tactical and short term success achieved by industry and governments so far. We welcome the next steps to develop a comprehensive long term strategy, which strengthens and supports the local communities and eradicates piracy on shore. Counter piracy remains a top priority for the emirate as maritime security is an important factor in the economic growth of the GCC region.”[mappress]DP World, August 14, 2013last_img read more

ICS Worried over Protectionist US Approach to LNG Exports

first_imgThe International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has voiced serious concern about the potentially protectionist approach being taken by the U.S. with respect to the future transport of energy exports, despite the signal of the US Congress from last week that it would approve major free trade deals with Asia and Europe.“International ship operators, represented by ICS, are particularly anxious that a regime currently being developed to promote the carriage of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports on U.S. flag ships may set an undesirable precedent should the U.S. decide to lift the current ban on crude oil exports (as is being considered by Congress at the moment),” ICS said.In December 2014, the US President Obama signed a legislation requiring the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to implement a program to promote the use of U.S. flag ships. This is expected to prioritise the processing of licenses for new deep water LNG export facilities from those exporters that indicate they plan to use U.S. flag gas carriers, rather than ships operated by foreign shipping companies.ICS believes that this approach is not in the spirit of the free trade commitments that the U.S. has already accepted with respect to maritime services at the World Trade Organization (WTO) and has implications bilaterally, for example, with respect to the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).The European Commission, which represents the EU in trade negotiation, and governments of other countries with large LNG tanker fleets, such as Japan and Norway, are also concerned.ICS says that any protectionist approach towards shipping being pursued by the U.S. might also be emulated by other energy exporters, such as Russia, Iran and Saudi Arabia.“This could seriously undermine the framework of open market access and free trade principles in shipping that has facilitated the efficient transport of energy worldwide since the 1980s,” ICS added.The United States already has restricting policies in place such as the Jones Act, which limits foreign carrier access to maritime trade between U.S. ports.Gas carriers are highly sophisticated vessels that typically cost over USD 100 million each to build. In reality, the U.S. has virtually no LNG carriers capable of operating in global export markets and is likely to find them uneconomic to build. Most gas carriers today are built in Japan, Korea and China In practice therefore, ICS believes that it is possible that the initial U.S. program will lead to foreign LNG shipowners being discriminated against in other ways, such as being required to employ U.S. seafarers, which are far more expensive to employ than their non-U.S. counterparts.“However, the U.S. does possess a domestic oil tanker fleet. Should a similar protectionist approach be applied to the carriage of crude oil exports, the global shipping industry fears it could be completely shut out of what is expected to be a major shipping trade worth billions of dollars a year,” ICS added.Any requirement or pressure to use U.S. flag tankers would undoubtedly increase the costs of exporting U.S. energy. But ICS says that unless the United States Trade Representative (USTR) or other supporters of free trade intervene, energy companies might see this as a price worth paying in order to be permitted to export U.S. crude.last_img read more

Dormant legal aid accounts to be closed

first_imgThe government will close solicitor accounts that are not being used to access the Legal Aid Agency’s services following a system upgrade to prevent glitches that led to the portal going offline for nearly a week.The online web portal provides single sign-on access to the agency’s core applications for legal aid providers and LAA staff. Applications include contracted work and administration, the client cost management system, eForms, Crown court remuneration and litigation fees as well as management information.This week the agency announced that, starting next month, it will begin closing accounts that have not been accessed for more than six months. Solicitors must contact their system administrator to restore access or set up a new account. Shared accounts will no longer be allowed for security reasons.Last year the portal was upgraded to improve performance and stability, ‘and decrease the likelihood of the occurrence of the types of severe issues that caused it to go offline for nearly a week in 2016’, according to guidance published by the agency.In March 2016, the Law Society reported that ‘significant ongoing problems’ with the portal for submitting electronic crime applications had severely delayed legal aid applications and applications for prior authority to do essential work on cases.The agency says the upgraded portal has improved security and data protection, quicker log-in times, a more user-friendly password reset process, a status bar for all applications which provides up-to-date information on issues affecting performance, and an upgraded message function.The guidance states that solicitors will no longer need to clear the cache to reset their password. They have 10 attempts to correctly state their username and password before they are locked out of the portal for 30 minutes. As long as a session is not idle for more than an hour at a time, solicitors will be able to access the portal for up to eight hours before the session must be re-authenticated.last_img read more

A&O joins other magic circle firms with student grant boost

first_imgAllen & Overy has confirmed it will increase the maintenance grant it awards for future trainees taking the legal practice course (LPC) – the last of the magic circle firms to do so.The firm said its grant will be increased by 43%, from £7,000 to £10,000. It will be backdated to the January 2018 LPC class.Claire Wright, graduate recruitment partner at A&O, said the increase is in ‘recognition of the fact that living costs have increased and as part of our overall commitment to social mobility’.She added: ‘We have a responsibility to ensure our profession is attractive and accessible to talented people who have the potential to succeed. We don’t want financial considerations to be a barrier to entry.’Last week Slaughter and May and Linklaters signified their intention to increase the grant from £7,000 to £10,000. Earlier this year, Clifford Chance and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer also boosted the grants by the same amount.All five magic circle firms cover LPC course fees.last_img read more

Public servants warned to campaign discretely

first_imgDominica Labour Party supporters at its campaign launch on the Dame Mary Eugenia Charles BoulevardGeneral secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) Thomas Letang has called for a review of the Public Service Act where the involvement of public officers in politics is concerned. In an interview with Dominica Vibes on Monday 17 November 2014, Letang noted that there must be some “tidying up” of the Act.“At some point we have to review the Act and to try to tidy up that Act because if the Act was tidy, certain things would not be allowed and it would be clear in people’s minds as to what they can do and they cannot do”.Letang said while the current Act does not “speak to any sanctions”, the Public Service Commission can take disciplinary action against a public officer “if a person goes overboard”.“If one feels that somebody has gone overboard the disciplinary procedure would be referring the matter to the Public Service Commission”.United Workers Party rally in Newtown to launch Joshua Francis“The Public Service Commission doesn’t really say exactly what specific disciplinary measures can be taken against that person but they have a number of ways they can deal with the these persons,” he informed.Meanwhile, Letang noted that while he is not against public officers attending political meetings; this must be done in a discrete way. At a recent meeting of the United Workers Party in Newtown, political leader Lennox Linton asked the public servants attending the meeting to raise their hands and make themselves known because the DLP Government is on its way out and there can be no implications for them.Letang said public officers have a right to join any democratic process and attend political meetings, but warned that the Public Service Act prohibits public officers from “active canvasing where they go to the political platforms”.He also advised that public officers should stay away from wearing political shirts along with other paraphernalia. “Even the shirts, while all the parties have been doing it, I believe that the more that you can stay away from identifying yourself with a political party is better for you”.“While I would not discourage public officers from attending meetings if they so desire, but to go onto the political platform, I would advise them against doing that and if they can avoid wearing those t-shirts that would even be better,” he said.

Rotary Club of Dominica Investiture Ceremony 2018

June 30, 2018Garraway Hotel“Be the Inspiration”. The Rotary Club of Dominica, held its 44th Investiture Ceremony at the Garraway Hotel on June 30, 2018, where outgoing President Mr. Aylmer Irish handed over the gavel and reigns of presidency to incoming President, Mr. Cecil Shillingford. Outgoing President Aylmer Irish highlighted the most challenging rotary year in the club’s history in which the island was hit by a catastrophic hurricane. In the true spirit of Rotary’s motto “Service above Self” Immediate Past President Aylmer received tremendous unwavering support from members to respond to the plight of fellow Dominicans. Lobbying and the receipt of innumerable amounts of contributions from neighboring clubs in the region, international partners and supporting organizations, Rotary Club of Dominica was able to be the vehicle by which vulnerable Dominicans would be served with much needed food, water, clothing, medical supplies, shelter material, building material, tools among other items. Rotary Club of Dominica was also able to provide a number of local organizations with support, which included the Princess Margaret Hospital, the Grotto Home for the Aged and the Operation Youth Quake. Presently, the Club is receiving donations and is actively contributing towards recovery and rehabilitation efforts. Rotary Year 2018/2019 seeks to explore the theme “Be the Inspiration”. Incoming President Cecil Shillingford charged the club with the idea of getting their hands dirty.“As your new President, I just want to say to us all to prepare to dirty our hands and I am willing to be the inspiration. I have a passion for community work and assisting the less fortunate and post Maria there is a lot of that which needs to be addressed.” In his current capacity as Disaster Risk Management Consultant, President Cecil has committed to starting the job with a view to increasing rotary’s ability to be better prepared for disaster and the aftermath thereof. He believes that it is time for the Club to augment relief and early recovery efforts with Preparedness, Prevention, Mitigation, and Recovery to adverse events and Adaptation to Climate Change.” A Disaster committee has been formed, which will spearhead efforts to achieve the disaster preparedness goals of the new administration. President Cecil is also keenly interested in the restoration of Dominica’s rainforest. His aim is that every Rotarian would plant at least one tree. There are also plans for collaborating with sister clubs in French Guyana to embark upon a massive tree-planting program in Dominica.At the ceremony, Dr. Francis O. Severin, Orator for the University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus, delivered the feature address. Dr. Severin encouraged Rotarians to note the meaningful nuance between the two phases to be An inspiration versus To be THE inspiration, as one suggests superiority, singularity and a dedicated courage and willingness to be and do what others may not readily be inclined to. He moved on to remind Rotarians that the effectiveness of the club and the extent to which one can be THE Inspiration is constrained by both individual and collective thoughts.Accompanying the installation of a new president, a New Board of Directors for 2018-2019 was installed:President: Cecil ShillingfordVice President – Annie EdwardsSecretary – Darin GrellPresident Elect 2019-2020 – Lima JervierSergeant-at-Arms – Dr. Fr.

Warga UEA Setujui Aturan Penggunaan Sabuk Pengaman dan Car Seat

first_imgMobilku.org Awalnya para ekspatriat yang tinggal di Uni Emirat Arab (UEA) mengeluhkan terkait masalah sabuk pengaman dan kursi duduk anak (car seat) di dalam mobil. Namun, sekarang ini justru berbalik, para ekspaktriat UEA tersebut justru merasa bahwa sabuk pengaman dan kursi anak dalam mobil adalah hal yang aman untuk digunakan.Baca juga: Foto Viral Ini Ingatkan Pentingnya Car Seat Untuk AnakKabarPenumpang.com kemudian melansir khaleejtimes.com (6/7/2017), saat ini justru banyak ekspatriat UEA yang menginginkan adanya juga penerapan peraturan tersebut di negara asal mereka. Peraturan ini baru berlaku pada Sabtu (2/7/2017) dan banyak sekali manfaatnya. Salah seorang warga Dubai, Amit Singh mengatakan bahwa dirinya mendukung inisiatif ini, dirinya berharap, di India negara asalnya juga ada peraturan seperti itu. Amit pun mengaku di awalnya tidak nyaman dengan peraturan tersebut karena belum terbiasa.“Tapi perlahan mereka akan menyadari bahwa ini bermanfaat untuk keselamatan anak-anak dan juga untuk seluruh keluarga,” katanya.Baca juga: Qantas dan JetStar Izinkan Car Seat Dibawa ke Dalam KabinSeorang ekpatriat asal Palestina, Rawan Al Hussain mengatakan, bahwa dengan peraturan sabuk ini maka pengamanan Dunia Arab perlu diubah. “Ini adalah aturan terbaik yang dibuat untuk keselamatan anak-anak. Sabuk pengaman menyelamatkan nyawa dan dalam kasus kecelakaan akibat benturan besar, penumpang di kursi belakang sering terlempar dari mobil jika sabuk pengaman tidak dipakai.”Ahmed Lasheen seorang penduduk Mesir mengatakan, di negaranya sendiri peraturan penggunaan sabuk pengaman sudah ada. Tetapi belum berlaku untuk anak-anak dan penumpang mobil dan ini adalah suatu perubahan baru. Menurutnya, ini adalah hal positif terhadap undang-undang lalu lintas federal dimana pengemudi dan penumpang bisa terlindungi. Selain itu, ini juga memperbaiki tingkat disiplin saat mengemudi.Baca juga: Lampu Sabuk Pengaman Mati, Waktu Yang Tepat Gunakan ToiletPadahal di Eropa, Amerika dan Australia peraturan penggunaan sabuk pengaman dan tempat duduk anak sendiri sudah lama penerapannya. Hal ini pun dibenarkan oleh Jeff Price dan Zeyna Sanjania para ekspaktriat Inggris dan lama tinggal di UEA. “Saya mendukungnya 100 persen, kami selalu menerapkannya dan bagi mereka yang tidak setuju dengan hal itu, mereka perlu menyadari bahwa ini demi keselamatan anak-anak mereka dan orang lain,” ujar Price.Baca juga: Untuk Penumpang Obesitas, Perpanjangan Sabuk Pengaman Belum Jadi Prioritas“Sungguh mengejutkan bagi saya untuk melihat anak-anak di kursi depan duduk di pangkuan ibu mereka, tapi itu terjadi di sini. Namun, saya harap sistem denda dan poin yang parah merupakan inisiatif yang baik untuk mengubah pola pikir ini,” katanya.Namun beberapa warga masih mendapati dampak finansial dari peraturan tersebut. Abdul Sharef yang berdomisili di Dubai mengatakan meskipun peraturan baru tersebut mempromosikan keamanan, tetapi menjadi beban bagi keluarga besar.“Car seat masih sangat mahal dan beberapa keluarga tidak mampu membelinya. Bagi keluarga dengan beberapa anak yang berarti banyak unit harus dibeli.” Dan dia masih skeptis terhadap peraturan ‘sabuk pengaman untuk semua’. Sabuk pengaman untuk semua anggota keluarga besar tidak praktis. Ini adalah kebiasaan budaya, dan anak-anak yang tidak terlatih duduk di kursi atau memakai sabuk pengaman akan sulit menyesuaikan diri,” ujar Sharef.Baca juga: Soal Keselamatan Penumpang, Moda Laut Seperti DianaktirikanSementara itu ekspat Filipina, Richard Dela Cruz, setuju dengan peraturan pengaman menggunakan sabuk keselamatan, hukuman pelanggaran terhadap Dh400 “terlalu besar”.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedHanya 12,3 Persen Masyarakat UEA Gunakan Sabuk Pengaman di Kursi Belakang24/02/2019In “Darat”Sabuk Pengaman Ternyata Sudah Ada Sejak 1800-an05/08/2019In “Darat”Lima Kesalahan dalam Memasang Car Seat di Kendaraan24/03/2018In “Darat”last_img read more

CWI to revamp selection policy

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Cricket West Indies (CWI) is set to revamp its selection policy in an effort to rid the process of “politics or petty emotional situations”, in a move geared towards having the best squad selected for the upcoming ICC World Cup.New president Ricky Skerritt said the selection policy had come under heavy scrutiny ever since he and Vice-President Dr Kishore Shallow assumed the reins of the regional governing body two weeks ago, and it was now hoped that the changes would result in a broadening of the selection pool.“In the last two weeks, one of the most critical points that has been embedded as a selection policy is that if a player can still get selected for the team, they must be considered,” Skerritt told cricket website, Cricbuzz.“There must be no reason for non-consideration other than cricket or medical or physical health. No administrative issues, politics or petty emotional situations must prohibit or prevent players from being considered for selection.”New Cricket West Indies president, Ricky Skerritt.He continued: “The last 10, 11 days since the election, we’ve been bringing in changes in terms of personnel and policies to make sure that we can reach out to everybody who wants to play for West Indies. WIDE SLATE “The people responsible for selecting, managing and leading the squad to the World Cup have been reaching out to players who may be interested, to let them know that the policy has changed and to be clear whether they are available or not, so that when the group gets together next week to make their final decision on the squad, they have as wide a slate to choose from as possible.”Selection politics has remained a perennial issue in West Indies cricket but became a major talking point in recent years as the relationship between senior players and the Dave Cameron-led CWI administration frayed.Darren Sammy was inexplicably axed as captain and dropped from the squad five months after guiding West Indies to the capture of the Twenty20 (T20) World Cup in India three years ago, with many believing the move was as a result of his controversial public criticism of Cameron and CWI’s handling of player issues in the lead-up to the tournament.Similarly, recently retired all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was never picked again in a one-day squad after playing a key role in the contentious, abandoned tour of India in 2014. He was also sacked from the T20 squad in 2016 following the disastrous tour against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates, which followed the firing of head coach Phil Simmons – a development subsequently criticised by Bravo.last_img read more

In Christmas, the song, “Tis the season to be jolly, lalalalala” is being sung by a majority of people. However, Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper celebrated Christmas in a very special way. Kohli spent his christmas celebrations with children in a Kolkata shelter home and the celebrations will warm the hearts of each and every individual in the country. In a video shared by Star Sports, the nearly three-minute video opens up with a visual of a children’s shelter home in Kolkata. In the video, there are plenty of kids who are saying what they want for Christmas.Some kids wanted to meet their favorite superheroes like Spiderman, Batman while others are saying their favorite list of sportspersons. PV Sindhu, Cristiano Ronaldo and Virat Kohli are some of the names that they mention. However, little do the kids know that Kohli was watching the video on his Ipad and when one kid mentions why he liked Kohli, the kid remarked, “I like his beard.” Hearing that, Kohli breaks into guffaws.The very next day, the kids are given a surprise when the children home staff show the video of their demands. Some of the kids are embarrassed. Unknown to the kids, at the same time, Kohli comes in dressed as Santa Claus. He comes with a big trolley of gifts and said, “I know some of you have been naughty but I also know what everyone wants for Christmas.” One of the staff then says, “All the superheroes are currently on holiday. But, do you want to see Kohli?” The kids shout yes.Kohli, dressed as Santa, says, “I will make you meet Kohli.” He removes his disguise and when the kids find out it is Kohli, they are incredibly happy and they rush in to give Kohli a big hug. They then proceed to open the gifts. Kohli then remarks, “These moments are really special in my life. All these kids cheer for us all year long. I had great time bringing joy to all these kids. A merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all of you.” This was part of Star Sports’ advertisement wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.Also Read | India Aim To End Decade On A High In Cuttack Shoot-Out Vs West IndiesKohli is currently in Cuttack for the third and final ODI and India will be hoping to win the series and register their 10th straight bilateral series win against the West Indies.

LSU will learn bowl destination Sunday with eyes of Texas upon it

first_imgBATON ROUGE – There have been many more bowl stories and bowl projections concerning LSU over the last week or so than there are bowls interested in the Tigers, who closed the regular season at 8-4 overall and at No. 24 in the College Football Playoff and USA Today polls.Present at the Tigers’ 23-17 win at Texas A&M on Nov. 27 in the regular season finale were only the Texas Bowl of Houston, the Independence Bowl of Shreveport and the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, North Carolina.The Texas Bowl, which kicks off at 8 p.m. Dec. 29 on ESPN and pairs the SEC with the Big 12, has been in the mix for LSU for some time for geographic reasons, which are being weighed more prominently in the new bowl alignments. The Independence Bowl and Belk Bowl do not look very likely.A recent entry into the mix is the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee, at 2 p.m. Dec. 30 on ESPN that is paired with the Atlantic Coast Conference. LSU, which has been to a bowl in every season since 2000 and three in a row from 1995-97, has never played in the Nashville bowl and has not played in a bowl in the state of Tennessee since it lost to Baylor in the 1985 Liberty Bowl in Memphis.The Liberty Bowl at 1 p.m. Dec. 29 on ESPN had LSU on its radar previously for a Big 12 matchup, but with Tennessee bowl eligible at 6-6 for the first time since the 2010 season, it has that geographic interest in the Volunteers.There is also perhaps the most attractive bowl to LSU fans in the Taxslayer Bowl, formerly Gator, in Jacksonville, Florida, at 2:20 p.m. Jan. 2 on ESPN against an ACC team. The state of Florida is usually the most coveted bowl site by most schools, even though the Tigers played in the Sunshine State last season at the Outback in Tampa, where it beat Iowa 21-14. LSU has not played in Jacksonville’s bowl since beating South Carolina, 30-13, on Dec. 31, 1987.“I think going down to Florida is always a fun bowl trip,” redshirt freshman wide receiver John Diarse said. “That would be another great trip.”LSU will learn what bowl it goes to Sunday afternoon at about 3:30 p.m., following the College Football Playoff pairings announcement.The SEC office now has most of the power in the bowl selection process for its teams. The bowls themselves and the schools themselves have less say.“The conference will make the assignment as to which teams would participate in the bowls,” SEC associate commissioner Mark Womack said recently. “We’ll have discussions with our institutions about which bowls that they would have an interest in. But at the end of the day, the conference will make the decision.”And LSU struggled to get its bowl of choice even when it had more of a say. It did not want the Chick-fil-A Bowl after the 2012 season and ended up there at 10-2, losing 25-24 to Clemson. LSU athletic director Joe Alleva and Coach Les Miles would have preferred the Cotton Bowl that season, but Texas A&M went there instead at 10-2 despite a 24-19 home loss to LSU, and some LSU people were very upset.Fans and media forget, though, that head-to-head results do not always matter in the bowl selection process. Cosmetics and pizazz do. The Aggies, new to the SEC, were a much hotter team as the 2012 season closed with Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel, a win at No. 1 Alabama and one of the best offenses in the nation. Their loss to LSU was also in October. And the Aggies beat Oklahoma, 41-13, in the Cotton Bowl.Miles lobbied for the Cotton Bowl over the Chick-fil-A after the 2005 regular season to no avail as well.With a .500 record in the SEC and the 78th total offense in the nation with 383 yards a game, LSU does not have many arguable points for its bowl choice this season either. The Tigers have the worst pass offense in the SEC and 114th in the nation with 163.9 yards a game and the lowest rated passer in the league and 91st in the nation in quarterback Anthony Jennings at 115.3.LSU, though, did finish No. 1 in the nation in pass defense efficiency at 98.70 with nine touchdowns allowed and 10 interceptions while also finishing No. 1 in the SEC and No. 8 nationally in total defense with 305.8 yards allowed a game.Bowl and league officials tend to not like low scores, though. LSU will just have to make the best of wherever it is sent. And for the second time in three years, that will be a third tier, average bowl.PREDICTION: Texas Bowl in Houston at 8 p.m. Dec. 29 on ESPN against Texas (6-6).last_img read more

Tendulkar did not accept the dismissal and said he would not…

first_imgMumbai: Australian umpire Daryl Harper’s explanation over Tendulkar’s dismissal during a Test match in Adelaide in 1999 has been controversial. The ball hit Tendulkar on the shoulder as he tried to escape, believing that Glenn McGrath’s ball would be a bouncer. The umpire allowed the appeal of the Australian players. In light of this controversial decision, the ICC decided that both on-field umpires should be ‘neutral’ in Test matches.Meanwhile, Harper had recently come to the scene, repeatedly declaring that the decision to call out that day was the right one. Harper not only regretted the decision, but said he was “proud” to have made such a decision without fear. Moreover, former chief selector MSK Singh said that Tendulkar himself had accepted the outing. Harper also explained that Prasad had revealed it to him.However, Prasad himself has denied Harper’s explanation. Prasad said it was true that he had met Harper a few years back when he was the chief selector of the Indian team, adding that he had not said that Tendulkar had accepted the outing.‘It is important to understand that the guilt of calling out Tendulkar in the wrong way still haunts Harper. It is true that Harper was spotted during a meal during the 2018 India-Australia Test series. Harper asked me, “How did Tendulkar react to being called out on the shoulder that day?”“Whether you call Tendulkar out or not, he will not question that decision. Questioning the umpire is not his style. That is why he continues to be a role model for each of us today. That’s how he grew up to be the god of Indian cricket ‘- that was my answer then’ – Prasad explained.According to Prasad, Harper had interpreted his words as “Tendulkar will not question whatever the umpire decides”.English Summary: ‘Sachin not a person who will question umpires’: MSK Prasad refutes Harper’s claims on controversial Tendulkar dismissallast_img read more

Lewis half-century fires Victorians into final

first_imgDHAKA, Bangladesh, CMC – West Indies left-hander, Evin Lewis, confirmed his return to form when he thumped an unbeaten half-century to propel Comilla Victorians to a convincing eight-wicket win over Chris Gayle’s Rangpur Riders in the Bangladesh Premier League here yesterday. Playing in the first qualifier at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Victorians chased down their target of 166 with eight balls to spare, with Lewis carving out a handsome unbeaten 71 off 53 deliveries.Anamul Haque supported with 39 while Shamsur Rahman stroked an unbeaten 34 in a cameo at the end.Veteran Gayle had earlier made a patient 46 from 44 deliveries as Riders, opting to bat first, reached 165 for five off their 20 overs. The 39-year-old put on 33 for the third wicket with South African Rilee Roussouw (44) before holing out to long off in the 11th over, after hitting six fours and a six.Riders then needed Benny Howell’s swift 53 not out off 28 deliveries with three fours and five sixes, in a 70-run, fifth wicket stand with Roussouw, to make a strong finish to the innings.In reply, Lewis carried the Victorians innings, punching five fours and three sixes as he put on 35 for the first wicket with Tamim Iqbal (17) and a further 90 for the second wicket with Anamul. Shamsur then arrived to dominate an unbroken third wicket stand of 41, lashing four fours and a couple of sixes in a 15-ball knock.In the other match, West Indies star Sunil Narine produced a solid all-round display to lead star-studded Dhaka Dynamites to a six-wicket victory over Chittagong Vikings and to another shot at the final.First, Narine bowled brilliantly to take four for 15 off his four overs as Vikings struggled to 135 for eight off their 20, with Mosaddek Hossain top-scoring with 40. Narine then slammed 31 off just 16 deliveries, with six fours and a six as Dhaka raced to their target with 20 balls remaining.Crucially, he got the innings off to a flyer, posting 44 off 27 balls for the first wicket with Upul Tharanga who made 51 from 43 deliveries.Gayle and Narine will feature in tomorrow’s second qualifier as Riders and Dynamites clash for a place in the final alongside Victorians.last_img read more

GNIC’s delay tactics, rain prevent GDF outright win

first_imgUnsavoury delay tactics by the Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) prevented the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) from completing a well-deserved outright win in the latest round of the Noble House Seafoods, Second Division two-day competition at the Muslim Youth Organisation (MYO) Ground on Sunday.  GDF, who required 66 runs to complete an outright win, were left agonizingly short by 10 runs when the rain came. Prior to that, GNIC’s players employed a number of witty delaying tactics to stall proceedings. Sunday’s game saw GNIC being bundled out for 142 after winning the toss and electing to bat. Only Shane De Souza (32) and Jevin Colling (23) got amongst the runs while Leon Andrews (3-27), Jamal Chisholm (2-36) and Damion Waldron (2-38) shared the wickets for the Army men. GDF, in their first innings, captured first innings points and a handsome lead after they posted 272 before being dismissed with Waldron (52) returned to score half century. Damion Withney (49) and Letroy Clarke (44) missed out on reaching their milestones. GNIC, with a deficit of 130 runs, were dismissed for 196 in their second innings with Rashidi Benjamin (55) and Dexter Solomon (44) getting amongst the runs. Randy Lindore nabbed 4-50. Needing 66 to complete the win, GDF ended on 56-1 when rain intervened.last_img read more

IKON launches gaming challenge platform

first_imgGaming challenge platform IKON has officially launched, allowing players to challenge friends and fans.At the time of launch, IKON supports League of Legends and PlayerUnknown’s Battle Grounds (PUBG). More supported titles – including Apex Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – are set to be officially announced in the coming days and weeks. Image credit: IKONIKON is a piece of software that runs alongside a game, recording your gameplay as you go. Once the game is over, the software provides clips of your best moments and has an editing suite so the clips can be customised. From there, it allows you to share videos to social media to challenge others.Jonathan Weinberg, CEO of IKON discussed the platform in a release: “IKON, at its core, is a platform for players and creators to create new experiences for their friends and followers. Challenge and creativity is the backbone of gaming – so we wanted to create an awesome sandbox for creators to use challenges as a way to be a part of their fans’ gameplay even when they’re done streaming.” Image credit: IKONIKON has options for monetization and is seen as another means of interacting with fans. The software is already populated with challenges set by beta users and gaming brands, though anybody can create challenges. Esports Insider says: It’s an interesting concept to appeal to gamers’ competitive nature in a way other than attending events or playing online tournaments. Fostering fans and a community on social media is an important aspect of remaining relevant in today’s climate so there appears to be a market for IKON.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more

Nania FC face 1500 dollars fine plus 3 year ban for Africa withdrawal

first_imgDivision One campaigners, Nania FC face a ban of 1,500 US Dollars and a three-year ban for their withdrawal from the 2012 CAF Confederation Cup.Nania FC, billed to face Guinean club, Sequence FC at the weekend at the preliminary round, announced their withdrawal from the second-tier continental Club Championship few days before the first leg clash citing financial constraints.Information gathered by GNA Sports in Accra on Monday indicates that the FA Cup holders will be handed the punishment as enshrined in the regulations of the competition.Article 13 of the regulations of the CAF Confederation Cup stipulates that clubs which withdraw from the competition will taste such penalties for their ‘unfortunate’ actions.“Withdrawals declared before the start of the competition and until the 1/8th final round inclusive, shall entail a fine of 1500 dollars in addition to losing the engagement fees.“Apart from the financial sanctions, every Club withdrawing from the competition after the establishment of the fixtures will be forbidden from participating in all CAF inter-clubs competitions for three years following its withdrawal,” portions of Article 18 reads. Meanwhile, the withdrawal of Nania is expected to further stain Ghana’s participation in the continental Club Championships.Ghana’s participation in the CAF Champions Club and the Confederation Cup, which has dwindled from the two clubs per each competition to one representative per championship, is expected to remain same at least for the next year.Ghana is unfortunately also expected to be ranked outside the top 12 countries guaranteed two slots per the two competitions when the ratings are released later in the year.In the recent past, Kpando Heart of Lions and Tema Youth were also banned from withdrawing in the competition.last_img read more

Like father, like son: Zac Blair follows in dad’s footsteps with State Am win

first_imgLAYTON — Ever since he can remember, Zac Blair has had a golf club in his hands. That’s was happens when your father is one of the best golfers ever to come out of Utah and owns the golf course across the street from where you live.Even when Zac was 3 years old, his father, Jimmy, used to take him to big tournaments he was playing in and let him ride on the back of the cart as long as he kept quiet.”It was awesome to grow up around the golf course and get those vibes,” Zac said.Sunday afternoon at Valley View Golf Course at 1:58 p.m., in perhaps the earliest State Am finish ever, those vibes paid off for Zac, who joined his father as a winner of the oldest continuous golf tournament in the world, the Utah State Amateur Championship. The 18-year-old Blair knocked off another 18-year-old, Alex Sutton, in a match featuring the youngest finalists in history. The 5 and 3 victory put Blair’s name on the same trophy that bears the name of his dad, who had won the State Am 36 years earlier, also at the age of 18.”It’s great, it feels awesome,” said Blair, who turns 19 next month but could pass for a couple of years younger because of his boyish face and diminutive 5-foot-6, 120-pound frame. The Ogden native will attend BYU starting next month.When he met the press, Blair hadn’t called his father yet but had talked to him between 18-hole rounds when his dad urged him to “keep it going.”While Zac’s mom, Cindy, and his sister, Becky, watched his victory Sunday, Jimmy was 500 miles away playing in the Wyoming Open in Cheyenne. It’s not that Zac wouldn’t have loved to have had his dad there to see his victory, but he acknowledges he usually plays better when his dad isn’t close by.”I’m a little looser when he’s not here” Blair said. “It’s not his fault, but sometimes I try a little harder and sometimes it gets me in trouble.”Blair was rarely in trouble Sunday and when he was, he quickly recovered and never let Sutton take control of the match as he had throughout his run to the finals.All week, Blair hit his drives straight and long and his irons close and only occasionally had to rely on a putter that was a bit off most of the tournament.In the morning, Sutton took his only lead of the day by making birdie at the first hole. Back-to-back birdies by Blair and a bogey by Sutton gave Blair a 2 up lead and he extended it to 3 up before Sutton birdied 17 to cut the margin to two.Perhaps the turning point of the match came at the 21st and 22nd holes, Nos. 3 and 4 in the afternoon round just after Blair has taken a 3 up lead.Sutton made birdies at both holes — his only two of the afternoon — but in both cases, Blair made birdies on top of his, with a 25-footer at 3 and a 12-footer on No. 4 after Sutton had hit it to gimme range.”When I made that birdie on top of him at 3, that was really huge and then I did it again at 4,” Blair said. “I feel like I kept the momentum, rather than letting him get it back.” Sutton agreed that those two birdies by Blair were deflating.”On 3, I made a great putt down the hill and he matched that and on the 4th, I about knocked it in and he made another birdie right on top of me. There’s nothing you can do there, when you’re making birdies and he’s making birdies.”Sutton never got closer that two holes the rest of the day and the match ended at No. 15 when Sutton missed a 12-foot birdie try and gave Blair his 8-footer.”I didn’t hit it that bad, I just didn’t make any putts,” said Sutton, who lives near Valley View and will be a sophomore on the Weber State golf team this fall. “I don’t think it was a confidence issue, they just weren’t falling for me. He just played really well.”The extra early finish was due mostly to the speed at which the two youngsters played.Blair is the poster child for ready golf, as he takes only a couple of seconds to decide on his shot before stepping up and hitting. “I don’t think you need to take a lot of time,” he said. “Just go up, find the yardage and hit it.”Even though Sutton never took a cart the whole week and walked some 140 holes, he doesn’t waste time once he gets to his shot either, often hitting his shots before photographers can get in position. Sutton said he was disappointed not to win, but acknowledged he never expected to win the tournament at the start of the week. As the No. 8 seed, he had beaten Jed Wright and Jeff Evans before upsetting defending champion Dan Horner in the quarterfinals. Then he knocked off Andrew Barton in Saturday’s semifinals.After shooting rounds of 72 and 69 in the qualifying and getting the No., 7 seed, Blair beat Conner Jones in the first round and 16-year-old Devon Purser in the second round.Then he faced Robbie Fillmore, the co-medalist and one of the pre-tournament favorites in the quarterfinals, where he put nine birdies on the board to beat his future BYU teammate 2 and 1. In Saturday’s semifinals, Blair faced a four-hole deficit after nine holes, but came storming back with six birdies on the back nine to win 1 up over Todd Francis.Blair was supposed to be in Norman, Oklahoma Sunday playing a practice round for the U.S. Public Links Tournament. Instead he had to fly out late Sunday for his 11:52 p.m. (MDT) first-round tee time today.”I didn’t get a practice round, but winning the State Am is better than a practice round, right?” Blair mused.Right.e-mail: [email protected]last_img read more

Jazz, Rubio hope he can be a more consistent outside shooter

first_img Gobert, Mitchell lead Jazz past Lakers Related Utah Jazz sneak past Los Angeles Lakers 105-99 to finish preseason undefeated I’ve been working on that for the past couple of years. I’ve been feeling better than ever and I trust myself. I feel good with confidence. – Ricky Rubio on his shootingSALT LAKE CITY — When Ricky Rubio missed his first 13 shots in a Jazz uniform in three preseason games last week, it likely made a lot of folks question why the Jazz acquired the veteran point guard in the offseason. At the very least, it made fans squirm in their seats watching shot after shot clang off the rim.When Rubio finally sank his first basket, a 3-pointer from out front in his 10th quarter of action in Utah, the Jazz faithful let out a cheer, with some of the cheers undoubtedly of the “yeah, he finally made a shot!” variety.Rubio ended up making one of his next three, finishing 2 for 9 on the night to get to 2 for 17 on the season.Maybe it was just the Vivint Arena baskets. Because three nights later in Phoenix, Rubio came out on fire, knocking down his first four shots en route to an 8-for-10 night as he led the team with 20 points in a win over the Suns.Then on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers, Rubio started off strong again, making 4 of his first 8 shots before ending up at 6 for 18 on the night, missing his last five shots.While the young Spaniard has brought some excitement to the Jazz offense with his flair for passing and a defensive mindset, he’s also proved that you never know what you’re going to get from him in the shooting department.It’s nothing new for his career, as he’s a 37.5 percent shooter in his six years in the NBA and 31.5 percent from 3-point range. His numbers in Europe before the NBA were similar — 38.5 and 32.3, respectively.Last week, Jazz coach Quin Snyder was defensive in talking about Rubio and his shooting woes. He said he didn’t want everyone falling into the “trap” of evaluating Rubio after every game, particularly his shooting.“I’m good if Ricky was 0 for 10 from three tonight, I don’t care,” he said. “There is a tendency … we’re waiting for him to show us something. If he plays that way, if he’s trying to prove something or please someone, that’s just the wrong approach.”Snyder says he wants Rubio to take open shots, which he may get a lot if he keeps missing because opposing teams won’t guard him on the perimeter.The fact is, despite all that Rubio brings to the team with his defense and passing ability, not to mention his free-throw shooting, which at 89.1 percent ranked No. 11 in the NBA last year, he’s not a great outside shooter. His career percentages are worse than any other point guard in the league that has played a comparable amount of seasons in the NBA.Check out the other point guards who have played at least six years in the NBA: Kyrie Irving 45.7 percent; Isaiah Thomas 44.3 percent; Jeff Teague 44.7 percent; Jrue Holiday 44.1; Kemba Walker 41.1 percent. And all are at least 35 percent from 3-point range.Rubio shrugs off talk about his shooting and says it’s been improving, as shown by the fact that he was over 40 percent in a season for the first time in his career last year at 40.2 percent.“I’ve been working on that for the past couple of years,” he said. “I’ve been feeling better than ever and I trust myself. I feel good with confidence.”The Jazz emphasize that they acquired Rubio more for his defense and his ability to pass. “He thinks about everybody else so much,” said Snyder, a trait not many NBA players have. As long as he can keep that attitude and contribute defensively, the Jazz will put up with some off-shooting nights.“The goal is not for Ricky to go 4 for 4,” said Snyder. “The goal for Ricky is to become a better player, every week, every month throughout the course of the season. The way to do that is to play the right way and continue to be aggressive and then work. There’s a lot of things he can do to get better. I think he’s excited about that and I’m excited about that.” Utah Jazz unveil ‘Super Rudy Block’ gamelast_img read more

Michael Brett earns Golfer of the Month

first_imgPSC Golf from the Bunker BoysMonday, August 27 Plutaluang North and West, Stableford Laem Chabang B and C, Stableford1st Tony Robbins (24) 35 points2nd Paul Lanzetta (7) 33 points 3rd Michael Brett (14) 32 pointsA split round today for the Bunker Boys with some taking up our monthly booking at the Thai Navy Course whilst seven others joined in a round comprising golfers from several Pattaya societies to celebrate the seventy-fifth birthday of Colin Davis at the Laem Chabang course.A total of over sixty golfers took part in the game at Laem Chabang in a round that was painfully slow taking over five hours to complete. The course was as you would expect from this prestigious venue, difficult for most, made more so by a stiff breeze even though temperatures remained high.Sadly the Bunker Boys didn’t acquit themselves too well with our top scorer Paul Lanzetta shooting thirty-three points to stay outside the winning group. The only one in the winner’s circle was Michael Brett who shot a back nine of nineteen points to take out the best back nine in the A flight.Not all the scoring was bad with the overall winner shooting a gross sixty-nine off a three handicap, fine golf indeed. Some very fine food in the form of a free buffet was available at Colin’s Bar prior to the presentation of prizes.In Plutaluang the top score was a bit better with Tony Robbins taking the chocolates on thirty-five points. Tony is still enjoying a generous handicap at present but this may change soon as his game is improving weekly.Wednesday, August 29Pattaya Country Club, Stableford1st Tony Robbins (24) 37 points2nd Michael Brett (14) 34 points3rd Paul Lanzetta (7) 34 pointsNear pins: Steve Durey, Alan Sullivan, and Paul Lanzetta X 2.Golfer of the Month Michael Brett.A good low season group of eleven assembled for the midweek game at Pattaya Country Club. The course was in the best condition we have seen for some time but the greens were hard and fast so it was difficult to hold long approach shots anywhere on the putting surface.Rain threatened several times but fortunately held off, however, we were not so lucky with the wind which blew quite strongly for most of the day. Speed of play was ok with no real holdups.Many of our group struggled in the conditions so for the most part scoring was modest at best. For the second day in a row Tony Robbins topped the winner’s list with a good score of thirty-seven whilst Michael Brett edged out Paul Lanzetta from second place on countback. Paul did make up for it by securing two near pins with one each to Alan Sullivan and Steve Durey.Friday, August 31Greenwood C and A, Stableford1st Geoff Parker (14) 34 points2nd Geoff Coc (18) 34 points3rd Tony Robbins (24) 33 pointsNear pins Tony Robbins X 4The last game of the golfing month was played at the Greenwood Course where once again a good low season number of eleven participated. The course was virtually empty so the speed of play was good until the back nine where a group inserted themselves in between our first and second groups, thereafter play slowed down a bit but not enough to cause any problems.The course was in good condition, the weather fine, but once again the wind blew which affected scoring.Geoff Parker took the honors showing flashes of his best game coupled with some not quite so good. Geoff Cox took second place on countback also on thirty-four whilst Tony Robbins got his name on the winner’s sheet for the third time this week taking third place. Tony was also the only one to get his ball on a par three thereby taking all four near pins.Being the last game of the month it was also time to see who would take out the golfer of the month trophy. At different times throughout the month, Raleigh Gosney and Peter Allen looked like challenging but in the end, the fast-finishing Geoff Parker just missed out to Michael Brett who finally nailed one after several lost opportunities throughout the season.last_img read more

Police awaiting autopsy report in Tuschen accident

first_imgAs investigations continue into the fatal accident in which a four-year-old was killed, Police in D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) are awaiting the post-mortem examination (PME) report.Dead: Little Ramkaran MohanThis is according to Divisional Commander Leslie James who told Guyana Times on Thursday evening that the PM report is expected to be available sometime today and then the Police will move forward with instituting charges against the female driver.Ramkaran Mohan, called “Ram” of Lot 1088 Tuschen New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo, died on Tuesday afternoon at the West Demerara Regional Hospital after he was hit and hauled under a moving car a short distance from his house.Guyana Times was told that the former Tuschen Nursery School pupil was returning home with his five-year-old brother and teenaged uncle after they went to a shop obliquely oppose their home to purchase a ball.The lad’s grandmother, Bibi Nazmoon Khan, related that her adopted son, the teenager who accompanied the brothers to the shop, related to them that he was standing at the corner of the road with each of the boys holding his hands, waiting to cross when the silver Toyota Primo, bearing registration number PVV 5084, struck the child.“The boy was waiting to cross with the two lil boys because he see the car coming so he was waiting for it to pass before they cross but then she (the car driver) swerve into the grass corner and hook the child.

Woman is shot dead at Simi Valley tire shop

first_imgWitnesses said Sutcliffe was sitting in a chair in front of the tire shop reading when the gunman shot her in the face, according to the Ventura County Star. Livingstone told the Los Angeles Times that police were ruling out robbery and instead focusing their investigation on possible personal motives. Dani Alley, who lives near the tire shop, said she went to the shop to investigate the commotion after the shooting, and saw officials covering the woman’s body with a sheet. Simi Valley Hospital officials identified the wounded as Henry John Heeber IV, 37, and Albert Ramirez, 20. Ramirez was listed in serious condition after surgery for a stomach wound, hospital spokesman Jeremy Brewer said. Heeber was treated for gunshot wounds in both arms, and was in fair condition, Brewer said. Heeber was franchise owner of the tire shop, Stephan Longo, director of marketing for Am-Pac/Tire Pros, told the Times. “We have no idea who this gunman was,” Longo said. “This was not a disgruntled employee.” Livingstone said a gun was found, but he could not confirm whether it was used in the slaying. The tire shop is on a corner lot with a parking lot in front. There was a trail of blood between the tire shop and a shop 100 feet away. Simi Valley is a city of 100,000 that is often classed as one of the safest for its size in America, based on reports of violent and serious crimes. Steve Martinez, an assistant manager at a Jiffy Lube shop near the tire store, said he heard gunfire in the morning. He said he assumed it was a car backfiring because he couldn’t imagine a shooting in the area.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SA now making, assembling 50% of taxis

first_img19 March 2013 South Africa has made significant progress in localizing the manufacture and assembly of minibus taxis, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel said on the weekend. “Some 12 months ago, none of the taxis on our roads were assembled in South Africa. Today about 50 percent of all taxis that are purchased are made or assembled here in South Africa, and we’re moving towards the target of localizing two-thirds of assembly in the taxi industry by 2015.” The government is leading a campaign to promote the local procurement of supplies across all industries in order to boost the economy’s capacity to create jobs. Patel said the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) had been mandated to develop a national localization strategy to guide all spheres of government. He said the labour-absorbing capacity of local manufacturing industries had to be boosted to stimulate job creation and economic growth, adding that a strong local manufacturing sector would have a positive impact on South Africa’s balance of payments. “We are working in partnership with a major manufacturer, Toyota, who has expanded the factory in eThekwini, as well as a partnership with the IDC and a Chinese manufacturer called the Beijing Automotive Works that has started a factory in Gauteng. These companies had already employed 220 people to assemble taxis locally, with the number set to increase significantly by 2015, Patel said. In October 2011, the government, business, labour and community-based organisations signed a Local Procurement Accord committing the parties to work together to increase local procurement as part of South Africa’s plans to create five- million jobs over the next decade. And in December, the government put the buying power of the state firmly behind local manufacturers, with new amendments to the the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act allowing the government to name sectors and products that require a minimum level of local content to qualify for state procurement. Bus manufacturing was among the first batch of sectors designated for local procurement under the amended law, resulting in the local sourcing of 80 percent of all inputs and supplies in the manufacturing of bus bodies for the rapid public transport systems in Pretoria, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Other products designated in the first batch included power pylons, rolling stock, TV set-top boxes, clothing, canned vegetables, footwear and leather products. In January, the Department of Trade and Industry announced a second batch of designated products, namely electrical valves, manual and pneumatic actuators, electrical and telecommunication cables, and components of solar water heaters.

Technology: Kundra Resignation Blow to Government

first_imgOne bright spot in the Obama administration has been the handling of IT in the Federal Government.   Federal IT is in the midst of a turnaround, and much of the success has been due to Obama’s creation the new role of federal chief information officer and the appointment of Vivek Kundra to that position.   Indian-born Kundra held the position of Federal CIO for two and one-half years.  Kundra is leaving in August to become a joint fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.While all is not rosy with the current state of IT in the Federal government, Kundra was a strong an influential leader, and set a new direction.  As somewhat of an anomaly to how government typically works, the changes Kundra made within federal IT seemed to be smart and well thought.Kundra took the Federal CIO job at a time when operational costs of the aging government IT infrastructure were increasing rapidly, and failed projects were common.  He attempted to streamline IT infrastructure and identified areas for cost savings.  He initiated a strategy to consolidate government IT data centers and developed a strategy for moving forward with the idea of cloud-based computing.  And while many of those problems still exist, Kundra has steered the efforts in a good direction.Kundra acknowledged as recently as April of this year that federal IT had many problems still to overcome.  “The president is absolutely right. When we came into office, federal IT was undeniably broken.  These problems weren’t created overnight, and they won’t be solved overnight.”John Wonderlich of the Sunlight Foundation commented that “Vivek built the Data.gov and the IT Dashboard as tools to aggressively pursue transparency that affects how the government works.”Kundra commented on his resignation by saying “The work that I dedicated myself to while serving as the federal CIO – in cutting waste, strengthening cybersecurity and building an open and transparent government through technology will also drive my research interests on both the national and international levels.”One of the reasons for Kundra’s exit may be the environment of budget cutting.  Congress has reduced the funding for the e-government initiative from $38 million to just $8 million.  Those dollars exist to fund projects like USASpending.gov, Data.gov and Performance.gov.  Budget cuts caused Kundra to have to eliminate the Fedspace social network program and severely cut back on other project funding.What’s next?  We’ll have to wait and see.last_img read more

Fond Stories Over Coffee: The Passing of a Friend

first_imgOn Friday, November 2nd, 2007, our friend and colleague, Rob Carpenter, passed away suddenly. He was an incredible man, father and friend. His work with pre-testing and validation of new technologies for the Intel data centers will continue to live on. In fact, he had just filmed a follow-up video blog on the Wednesday before his passing. With the permission of his family, we have posted the video He was passionate about his work and sharing his knowledge with others.It may be out of the ordinary for one to find eulogies in a community sharing IT best practices, but Rob was and is a part of our community….the fabric of who we are. In honor and memory of Rob, I am republishing, with permission, some stories from his son Justin. Rob didn’t want a formal memorial service, instead he requested that he be remembered with “fond stories over coffee with friends.” Grab a cup of coffee…….”My earliest clear memories of him are from the early days of his private law practice, and his postdoctorate work in applied mathematics on the side, in his early thirties. He was just as amazing then, brilliant, twenty years ahead of his market (already thinking about standardization of computer networks and how one scheduled protocols in a protocol-heterogeneous environment where “pipe is pipe and traffic is traffic,” before many families even had microcomputers), His excitement and sincere enthusiasm was infectious, his integrity was already the stuff of legend, and he was never content to rest his mind.Even at the time of his death, he was working on numerous projects with Intel, and at the same time, teaching a course at Berkeley’s College of Divinity School of the Pacific in Benedictine contemplative meditation, serving as a volunteer subject matter expert in HAM and emergency radio technology, applying to be an oblate (layman participant in a Christian monastary, often part-time on weekends), avidly pursuing semi-professional photography as a hobby and passion, beginning to pen a second book unifying Christianity and Buddhism meditative traditions, and regularly conversing with me about my in-progress graduate work in the epistemology of mathematics. He never needed to read the texts I read; he simply asked for a two-sentence summary of their arguments, and could immediately form better arguments than the authors themselves.When I was four years old, I asked him what he was teaching in the evenings to take him away from Mom and I during cartoon time in the evenings, and he explained that it was applied math for physics. I blinked, and said with a mumble that I didn’t think I could do anything that hard, and he looked very surprised, sat me down at the dining room table, and proceeded to teach me algebra, basic trigonometry and the principles of calculus in two amazing hours. We started doing lessons instead of after-dinner TV, and by the end of the semester, he gave me one of the tests (no doubt simplified a bit) from his class. I passed it (with I believe an 89), and he said to me very seriously, “Justin, NEVER say that you can’t do something that seems hard. You can do just about anything if you really try. I want you to promise me that you’re not going to avoid doing things that look hard at first.” I promised him that I wouldn’t, and I find myself repeating that promise often, as the many grim realities of the current situation set in.His courage was amazing. During early 1995, our family was under a standing death threat from two different crime syndicates due to my father’s diligence as district attorney in prosecuting the people responsible for drug trafficking to New York through a Palenville airstrip. He never showed stress, never changed his routine beyond asking for a police escort at times. He’d sit calmly, albeit away from windows, with his ubiquitous glass of caffeine-free Diet Coke, and conversed with us from a room away. The conversations were like any other evening, just a little louder.I learned yesterday, after speaking to some of his friends in law enforcement in New York, that the situation was much more serious than I ever realized, and that he had a strong reason to believe that his life was very much in danger that evening. As we sat and nibbled dinner in two rooms, our house was under armed guard. My mother and I never knew. You could never judge the severity of a problem by my father’s composure, as it never faltered.It has been difficult to explain to people why there is no memorial service or funeral planned. My father held a memorial service for my mother, but asked that he simply be cremated and scattered without ceremony. When I asked him about the needs of the living to gather and remember, he suggested that those who wished to remember him, as best I can remember the quote, “go out for coffee, or pie, or breakfast, and come together as the living in a moment of life.” He explained that he did not want people in mourning clothes, with their eyes held low, listening to somber songs in a rented space — that the way to remember life was by imitating life, not by entering the atmosphere and mood of death.And so, there will not be one memorial service for my father, but many. There are moments of silence in Mt. Tremper where he attended the monastery, and a dinner in New York this weekend to toast, quote, “the finest district attorney the state has ever seen.” There will be tears shared among his many friends at several Intel sites, and fond stories of him at the next Sierra Foothills ARC brunch. In Tampa, there has been a memorial every time I’ve opened my mouth to speak in the last five days.There could be no one memorial large enough to encompass even most of the lives he touched, nor could even his closest fifty friends attend one, no matter where it was held. I considered holding one despite his wishes — I am certain he would have understood the need of the living to mourn — but I realized that his life was too big to bring into a room, or even a small concert hall. He had close, dear, personal friends in several countries and nearly every state, and every one of them was touched by his presence and would feel the need to be there. Robert Edmund Carpenter, the man so loved that his memorial service required an event space the size of the internet.There will be many memorials, you see. Every time you and others sit and remember him to one another, tell stories about his life, be they funny or amazing, every time you remember something he told you, or share him as an example to others, you are celebrating his life. Every time there is pain, or better yet, a happy anecdote to share, we can come together and share it — and you will hear, first- or second-hand, the anecdotes of others passed on for sharing.This is, I think, why he wanted it this way. No one is left out, no one is “unable to make it,” no one is forgotten, and the memorial takes as long as it needs to, for every story to be told, for everyone to be a part of it. When I think about it this way, I think he really had the right idea, and though I cannot imagine being even a pale shadow of the man he was, when I pass, I hope to be remembered the same way, through fond stories over coffee when I’m remembered now and then”last_img read more

Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar: The DNA of politics

first_imgDeoxyriboNucleic Acid (DNA) is one of the two types of nucleic acids present in our body. A DNA molecule is present in each and every cell of our body and contains the genetic code which tells the cells what proteins to make. In simple terms, DNA is what determines a person’s physical appearance and to a great extent, the person’s character. DNA is the very core of one’s genetic organisation, and it has been in the news lately.Ahead of Bihar assembly election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Bihar on July 25, 2015. During his visit, Modi made a comment on Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s DNA saying “There seems to be some problem in his DNA because the DNA of democracy is not like that. In a democracy, you give respect even to your political rivals,” and to that, Nitish Kumar has responded with a letter on Wednesday to PM Modi , stating, “I am a son of Bihar. My DNA is the similar as that of the people of Bihar .”The DNA of democracy and the DNA of descent maybe different ideas, but the two leaders invariably have the same “DNA of politics”.Humble beginnings Narendra Modi belongs to the Modh-Ghanchi-Teli community, considered among the Other Backward Classes (OBC) and says that he has worked at his family’s tea stall in Vadnagar, Mehsana district. His CV says he holds a post-graduate degree in political science.Narendra Modi Photo: Reuters Nitish Kumar, a Kurmi by caste, was born to a freedom fighter who left the Congress to join the then Janata Party when he was denied a party ticket. Nitish was an ordinary government employee with the Bihar State Electricity Board, but gave it up for a career in politics. Steady rise in politicsadvertisementWhile Modi rose within the BJP by organising LK Advani’s 1990 Ayodhya Rath Yatra and Murli Manohar Joshi’s 91-92 Ekta Yatra, Nitish learnt his early lessons under Jayaprakash Narayan and VP Singh to name a few. Nitish also claims to have imbibed socialist values from the teachings of Ram Manohar Lohia.Nitish Kumar became the Secretary-General of the Janata Dal in 1989. In 1995, Modi was elected the national secretary of BJP.First stint as Chief MinistersNitish Kumar was elected to the Bihar Legislative Assembly for the first time in 1985, as an independent candidate, but his first stint as the Bihar CM was in 2000, though, only for a week due to lack of majority. Nitish Kumar Photo: ReutersConquering the reign Modi and Nitish are leaders bound to move forward in the direction they intend to, because whoever comes in their way will be slayed. Modi replaced his senior Keshubhai Patel as the Gujarat CM in 2001 after declining to be Patel’s deputy, saying he would only be responsible for Gujarat fully or not at all. When he took over the BJP’s central election campaign committee, he mercilessly sidelined his guru LK Advani as well.Nitish Kumar who is no different, overpowered his seniors, mainly his mentor Lalu Prasad Yadav, and became the most powerful man in his state.Development AgendaBoth Modi and Nitish are known for their self-professed focus on development in Gujarat and Bihar, respectively.Though Modi’s economic policies are credited with improving economic growth in Gujarat, his administration has also been criticised. Nitish became popular by implementing series of delayed developmental activities in Bihar.Mr Clean and Mr Clean  Neither Modi nor Nitish are considered to be corrupt politicians.The LookNarendra Modi and Nitish Kumar sport a salt and pepper look with their grey hair and beard. They’re also found wearing similar attire, mostly khadi kurtas or shirts topped with a nehru jacket. Add to it the frameless spectacles, Modi and Nitish seem to be hinting at a very similar DNA.”I’m one amongst you” mantraWhen the Prime Minister uses it mostly to act secular and promote cordial relationships between various religions in the country, Nitish uses this mantra to please the people of his state who are mostly judged based on their descent.Dear leaders, whether or not we understand your DNA, we do understand the DNA of your politics, and we know the sad truth about the DNA of democracy in our country.last_img read more

4th ODI: Nelson wicket has New Zealand, Sri Lanka in a spin

first_imgNew Zealand were paying close attention to the Saxton Oval wicket on New Year’s Day amid suggestions it could offer spin for Saturday’s crucial fourth one-dayer against Sri Lanka.Another win to Sri Lanka would level the series at two wins apiece and turn the fifth and final game into the decider.A key piece of intelligence New Zealand took from the third match at Nelson’s Saxton Oval on Thursday was a sign the pitch is starting to take turn.They were thoroughly outplayed in that match with Sri Lanka bettering their 276-run total for the loss of only two wickets against New Zealand’s predominantly pace attack.The New Zealand bowling line-up is already destined for a shake-up with Tim Southee ruled out with an injured left foot, earning a recall for Matt Henry who took four wickets in each of the first two matches.But consideration is also being given to dropping one of the quick bowlers in favour of pairing the leg-break option of Ish Sodhi with the left-arm spin of Mitchell Santner.Santner, who went for a wicketless 59 off his 10 overs in Nelson, said the pitch flattened out during the day with a suggestion of spin.”It’s starting to turn a little bit so the spinners might get more of a crack,” he said, but added: “It’s still going to be a good batting surface so pushing that 300 mark could be a competitive score.”Kane Williamson, standing in as captain while Brendon McCullum recovers from a sore back, confirmed the two-spinner option was under discussion.advertisement”You assess the wicket and you look at the squad and pick the team that best suits the conditions. Naturally they (spinners) will come into a chance to play in the next one.”Williamson was not impressed with the way Southee, Adam Milne and Doug Bracewell set about defending New Zealand’s 276 total.”We didn’t bowl particularly well in that first 10 which didn’t help our cause. We would all admit we were off the mark there and they batted very well.”Tillakaratne Dilshan and Danushka Gunathilaka cracked 83 off the first 10 overs with Dilshan going on to make 91 and Gunathilaka 65.Lahiru Thirimanne was not out 87 when Sri Lanka reached their target with 22 balls to spare.Thursday was not a good day for Williamson as he watched his side crumble in the face of a rejuvenated Sri Lankan unit he also lost his place at the head of the world Test batting rankings to Australian skipper Steve Smith.Smith leaped from fourth to first following scores of 134 not out and 70 not out in the Boxing Day Test against the West Indies, which Australia won by 177 runs.last_img read more

CWG 2018: All you need to know about the Games and India’s medal prospects

first_imgWith a massive 222-member contingent, India will aim to showcase its status as a rising sports power with an expected rich medal haul when the 21st Commonwealth Games begin here on Wednesday.India had collected 64 medals (15 gold, 30 silver, 19 bronze) in the previous CWG held in Glasgow and the country will expect to better that performance at Gold Coast. Getting 101 medals in the New Delhi remains a tipping point for India in the CWG but since that took place at home, that mark will be lofty for the Indian contingent.The bulk of India’s medals in the past editions of the CWG have come from shooters, wrestlers, weightlifters and boxers and this time competitors under these four disciplines will look to continue their impressive record.After them, disciplines like squash, badminton and athletics will look to get to the top of the podium. Moreover, surprising performances in gymnastics and cycling are also expected.pic.twitter.com/qPR5kmZwPZAthletics Federation of India (@afiindia) March 26, 2018In shooting, India got 17 medals at Glasgow. In Gold Coast, India has a 27-member shooting team and several of the members are World Cup medallists. Some of the high profile and in-form shooters are Jitu Rai (50m pistol), Ravi Kumar (10m air rifle), Olympic 2012 medallist Gagan Narang (50m rifle prone), Anish Bhanwala (25m rapid fire pistol), Heena Sidhu, Manu Bhaker (both 10m air pistol), Mehuli Ghosh, Apurvi Chandela (both 10m air rifle), Anjum Moudgil, Tejaswini Sawant (both 50m rifle 3positions) and Shreyasi Singh (double trap).In weightlifting, high expectations are from reigning world champion S. Mirabai Chanu (-48kg) and Satish Shivalingam (-77kg). Apart from the duo, medal hopefuls are K. Sanchita Chanu (-53kg), Deepak Lather (-69kg), Saraswati Rout (-58kg), Punam Yadav (-69kg).advertisementFurther lining up the medals are wrestlers, spearheaded by two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar (-74kg) and 2016 Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik (-62kg). India has a powerful wrestling team and other key grapplers include Bajrang Punia (-65kg), Rahul Aware (-57kg), Mausam Khatri (-97kg), Babita Kumari (-53kg), Pooja Dhanda (-57kg) and Vinesh Phogat (-50kg).Among the boxers, Manoj Kumar (69kg), Vikas Krishan (75kg), Satish Kumar (+91kg), Gaurav Solanki (52kg), five-time world champion M.C. Mary Kom (48kg), Pinki Rani (51kg), L. Sarita Devi (60kg) and Lovlina Borgoahin (69kg). For Mary Kom and Sarita, this will be their last CWG campaign and they will look to end it on a high.The #Indian Contingent checked into the CWG Games Village in @GC2018 on Tuesday morning. All the boxers and support staff proudly pose with the Indian National Flag. #PunchMeinHaiDum #GC2018 pic.twitter.com/1401XFfQTUBoxing Federation (@BFI_official) March 27, 2018In athletics, among the 28 competitors, star javelin thrower and Asian champion Neeraj Chopra and 2014 Games’ silver medal-winning discus thrower Seema Punia have proved to be counted as confident medal hopefuls. Three-time CWG medal-winning discus thrower Seema Antil will need to again prove that she still has the hunger and power to earn India a medal here. M.R. Poovamma, Jauna Murmu and Hima Das and Sonia Baishya — part of 4X400m relay team — will need to pull of their very best to get a place on the podium.India also has high hopes from the badminton team, which includes Olympic medallists Saina Nehwal and P.V. Sindhu. In the men’s singles, Kidambi Srikanth and H.S. Prannoy are also medal prospects. In the mixed team event, India had failed in Glasgow and this time, riding on the singles superstars, India will aim for a podium finish.3 #DaysToGo!Thank you @GC2018 for the the lively welcome and the amazing performance you put together for us! #TeamIndia cherishes your warm hospitality and we’re all set to #SHARETHEDREAM #GC2018 #CommonwealthGames! @thecgf pic.twitter.com/3dTJDxUGFXIOA – Team India (@ioaindia) April 2, 2018India’s men’s hockey team won two silver medals in the past two CWGs, losing to Australia in the finals, and this time, the reigning Asian champions will aim to bag the yellow metal. The women’s team which competed in the 2010 and 2014 without medals, will have a strong chance to finish on the podium.In squash, expectations will be high on Joshana Chinappa, Dipika Pallikal Karthik, Saurav Ghosal and Harinder Pal Sandhu. Dipika and Joshana will look to defend their doubles title.In table tennis, Achanta Sharath Kamala will lead the Indian campaign. This Indian squad has already been hit by the ban on Soumyajit Ghosh, who is facing allegations of rape in Bengal. Harmeet Desai, Sanil Shetty, G. Sathiyan, Manika Batra, Mouma Das and Pooja Sahasreebudhe will compete in the singles, doubles and the team events.advertisementIn cycling, the pairing of Deborah Herold and Allena Reji is expected to bring a medal in the women’s time trial.In gymnastics, India has shown in the past few years that it can throw surprises in the big events like Dipa Karmakar in the Olympics and Aruna Budda Reddy in World Cup 2018. Though Dipa won’t be at the Gold Coast due to a knee injury, Aruna will aim to continue her rise to fame which started since the day she won a medal at the World Cup. 2010 surprising medallist Ashish Kumar is also there but in recent times, he has faded away and needs to rise to the occassion in his bid to get a medal here. Indian contingent at Gold Coast (Twitter Photo)Now let’s take a look at the top 5 biggest medal hopes for India:PV Sindhu (Badminton)The ace Indian shuttler is an overwhelming favourite to clinch gold in the womens singles events. In her previous appearance in 2014 as an 18-year-old, Sindhu won the bronze medal. Since then the Hyderabad athlete has improved leaps and bounds.The current World No. 3 in last four years has emerged as one of the best players on the tour. In this period, Sindhu won the Indian Open, China Open and Korean Open titles, which was capped by the silver at 2016 Rio Olympics.Her biggest competition will be Canadas Michelle Li and Scotlands Kirsty Gilmour – they won the gold and silver medal respectively in 2014.Kidambi Srikanth (Badminton)Along with Sindhu, Srikanth is another badminton player who has captured the imagination of the fans across the globe. Only 25, Srikanth seems to have hit his peak.In 2017, Srikanth won an unprecedented four Superseries titles – Indonesia Open, Australian Open, Denmark Open and French Open – and also reached the second position in world rankings.Srikanth also has the extra motivation to win gold as he would be defending it on behalf of fellow Indian Parupalli Kashyap who won the yellow metal at Glasgow.Neeraj Chopra (Javelin)Only 20, javelin thrower Neeraj is one of Indias biggest hope for gold at 2018 Games. The Haryana athlete first made headlines in 2016 with his stunning effort of 86.48m a junior world record – at the IAAF World Under-20 Championships to win gold.He continued his good form in 2017 by winning gold medal at the Asian Athletics Championship. He broke the mens javelin meet record with an effort of 85.23 meters.MC Mary Kom (Boxing)While many wrote her off as she is in the twilight of her career, Mary Kom returned last year to regain the Asian Boxing Championships title.The Manipuri boxer is a five-time World Amateur Boxing champion and the only woman boxer to win a medal in each of six world championships. The 35-year-old is not an overwhelming favourite for the yellow metal but if history has taught us anything, you can never put Mary Kom down.advertisementAlso, its a golden opportunity for the veteran to bid goodbye to her career on a golden note.Jitu Rai (Shooting)Another big medal prospect for India is the experienced pistol shooter Jitu Rai. The 30-year-old is entering the competition on the back of a successful 2017, where he won four gold medals and two bronze at ISSF events.Jitu will be competing in the 50m pistol and 10m air pistol event. He won gold in 50m pistol event in the 2014 Commonwealth Games.The 2018 Games is also a golden opportunity for Jitu to put the horrors of 2016 Olympics behind him, where he had a disappointing run despite being one of the favourites.(With IANS inputs)last_img read more

Will this lead to an emerging emphasis on food efficiency and the use of degraded lands, rather than virgin forest, for agricultural expansion?Electric Vehicles and Mobility: In 2011, a slew of electric cars will hit the U.S. and global markets. How will this transition take place, and what will the environmental benefit actually be? And how will innovations like high speed rail and bus rapid transit help rapidly growing economies like India, China and Brazil tackle their congestion and traffic problems?International Climate Action – Post COP-16: While there was modest success at the climate talks late last year, the response to climate change is expanding outside the UNFCCC negotiations to become a very significant part of development planning globally. What next steps will China, India, Brazil, and other developing countries take? And how far can the United States go towards meeting its own commitments?Political/Business Gap on Climate: While many members of the U.S. Congress seem to be increasingly hostile to climate action, companies are putting more emphasis than ever on being green. Why is it that the politics seems to be going one way while corporations and consumers seem to be going another?Video[vimeo 18507677]Powerpoint Presentation[slideshare id=__ss_6466705&doc=wri-jonathanlash-environmentalstoriestowatch2011-110106072930-phpapp02]Audio[mp3player stories_to_watch-2011.mp3]Twitter Archive<a href=”https://www.coveritlive.com/mobile.php/option=com_mobile/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=3bc1147a6c”>WRI Environmental Stories to Watch 2011</a>TranscriptJONATHAN LASH: Thank you all for joining us. It’s a pleasure to be with you this January morning.Before I get started, I did want to just recognize one dear, old friend who’s joined us this morning, my friend Dr. Tom Lovejoy. Tom is a world-leading ecologist, and I think has taught more people about the importance of the Amazon than any other five people in the world. Tom, it’s really great to have you with us this morning.So before looking ahead to 2011, it’s worth a quick look back at 2010. It was a tough year for the environment and a tough year for environmentalists, especially in the US. You all know that it was probably the hottest year in recorded history. This charts the number of locations that recorded the hottest temperatures ever recorded. It was marked by an enormous range of damages from natural disasters.This is a story about one insurance company’s totaling of the efforts. And many of these disasters were at least in line with what climate scientists are predicting with warming. A hundred-square-mile sheet of ice broke off Greenland early in the year. There was unprecedented heat in Russia and fires all across Siberia, at the same time that much of Pakistan was under water.And there were a series of tragedies that occurred at the extractive interface where human kind if going in its ever-greater effort to find fossil fuels – the Massey coal mine disaster and, of course, the Deepwater Horizon spill.But maybe the most important event of the year, from a US environmentalist’s point of view, was the failure of Congress to act on global warming legislation. And that really leads directly to the first story I wanted to talk about – the range of energy changes that the nation will be making in what is essentially a policy vacuum.The energy economy in 2010 was a little less than 10% of the whole US economy by value. And as the US economy recovers and energy demand increases in the US, both companies and energy producers face a range of important choices. Those are especially tough for utilities trying to decide how to make $100 million/billion investments in capital stock that will be functional for 20 to 50 years.And there are a number of drivers of change that they’re trying to respond to. The price of coal is going up, both because of global demand, and now because of the floods in Queensland. The price of gas is dropping; and you all are following the story of the increasing belief that we will see vast supplies of unconventional gas entering the US supply chain. Federal regulation is uncertain; I’ll get to that a little later. And there are enormous variations in state regulation of energy production and state policies are shifting.So the result is enormously difficult choices for utility investors trying to understand what costs will be over the coming decades. What we have seen, because of the slowdown in policy in the US, is we’re lagging far behind now in terms of clean energy investments, and the clean energy sector appears to be slowing down. As a result, there’s been some withdrawal of funds from clean energy investment funds. And recent reports suggest that the shares of stock in publicly traded clean energy investment funds are falling. There have been cancellations of coal-fired power plants. There have been cancellations of planned new nuclear units.So 2011 is going to be a year to watch which way all of this goes. And here are some things that you might particularly focus on:In the next several months, the CEOs or CFOs of utility companies will be doing their outlook briefings for Wall Street investors. In most cases, you are invited to join those calls, and they will talk about their plans. And my guess is, you will hear them talk a lot more about gas and probably wind than you will about coal. In fact, I think you will see a surprising surge of investment in wind, as well as in gas.You can look at decisions that regulators make about whether they’re willing to approve long-term gas supply contracts. Ever since the deregulation of natural gas prices in the US caused a certain amount of chaos in US markets, there have been very few long-term natural gas contracts. Utilities are pushing those again now for obvious reasons.You can look at whether other states follow Colorado with its Clean Power Act, or North Carolina with its Clean Power Act, both of which have led to conversions of power plants from coal to gas and rising levels of renewables. Or Massachusetts with its new requirements for long-term contracts with renewables producers.You can look at whether the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission endorses the efforts of those trying to build new transmission lines to get renewable power to the market to distribute those costs broadly across utility customers.You can look at whether Senator Lugar reintroduces his Energy Efficiency and Clean Power Bill, and whether it has a broad range of Republican sponsors. That would be the clearest indication that there was some possibility of policy initiatives in the current Congress.And finally, of course, you all are already watching the story at EPA. It’s been very much a front-page story in the last few weeks. In the pipeline at EPA are rules dealing with emissions of greenhouse gases, so-called conventional air pollutants, water discharges from power plants, and ash disposal.In moving ahead with those regulations, EPA is doing the job that was assigned to it by Congress under the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Toxic Substances and RCRA, as instructed by a score of outstanding court decisions. This is not an area in which EPA has broad flexibility to move or not to move. In fact, at the current time, the only requirement that has taken effect is not a requirement in a new rule; it is a Best Available Control Technology requirement for large, new facilities that stems directly from the Clean Air Act, not from a new rule.So as you listen to the debate about the EPA overreaching and the flood of regulation, you have to understand there actually isn’t any yet.This slide gives you a picture of EPA’s plans to deal with some of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the US economy – transportation, electric power and industry. It is the utility sector that will come under these requirements soonest, if EPA moves forward.And the Best Available Control Technology, or BACT, requirement will be administered by the states, because that authority’s delegated by EPA. All of the states have agreed to move forward with that, except Texas.My colleague, Franz Litz, is sitting back there nodding yes, because he’s instructed me on all this. And I think I got it all right, Franz. And if I didn’t, he’ll correct me. Or answer your more detailed questions.My view of this is the EPA is doing everything it possibly can to proceed reasonably and pragmatically to answer a set of questions that have to be answered and create huge and very expensive uncertainty that will be an obstacle to economic growth if the questions aren’t answered. I mean, I have to put my spin out here; I am an environmentalist and follow this fairly closely.And there are some companies, including some utilities, that strongly agree. You’ve seen Exelon and Pacific Gas & Electric out in public, in the Wall Street Journal, talking about these issues. But of course, you know there is a thunderous chorus from much of industry demanding that these regulations be blocked, and it seems a certainty that the House at least will vote a series of different kinds of measures designed to either strip EPA of authority to move ahead, or slow it in moving ahead.So there is a Congressional Review Act that enables them to take up a resolution to disapprove rules, if rules are promulgated. But none of these rules have been promulgated yet.There are opportunities in the Continuing Resolution and Appropriations Acts to attach legislation forbidding EPA to move forward. There will be opportunities to attach such legislation to multiple important decisions of the Congress.I don’t know what’s going to happen to those when they get to the Senate, if any will get to the White House, and, if they do, what the White House will do. It will surely depend on the context, and everybody’s going to be watching that anyway.So let me just suggest one thing: If six months from now there has not been any significant change in EPA’s authority to move ahead, and this is still moving, you should watch for initiatives by the utility industry to get these questions answered, to either get legislation through this Congress or find a way to reach an agreed-upon settlement with the EPA.So, from energy choices to food, fuel, water and land tensions, which are going to reemerge with a vengeance this year. You remember a few years ago when the story was all about biofuels driving up food prices. We’re going to see that story again. This particular issue was sort of an ode to the complexity of reality. The food story is not a simple story.Food prices are going up. They’ve been going up for some months now. Farmers are happy. It is not yet having a significant impact politically, but last time around, a few years ago, before the recession, there were food riots all over the world because of the cost of basic commodities. This is in part driven by oil prices going up. There’s a close tie between energy and food. But that is by no means the whole story.We live in a world with a growing population, and global economic growth has been restored. As population grows and the people in the world reach a higher standard of living, the demand for meat grows. As you know, every pound of beef requires many pounds of grain or soy to produce. So as human wellbeing improves, the demand for agricultural products expands.At the same time, the demand for biofuels, biodiesel and ethanol, corn-based ethanol, is rapidly expanding. That went on right through the economic recession, and is continuing. Those are products produced on the same land, by the same farmers who would otherwise be producing feed and food.And this tendency is exacerbated by the kinds of climate events that we’re seeing all over the world. So floods, droughts, storms disrupt agricultural supplies; that has a significant effect in 2007/2008.Generally historically, the way we have increased food production as population and wealth increased was to add fertilizer. This is a projection of future fertilizer use: The purple line is what one would expect as business is usual with expected food growth. The dotted line represents a set of policy changes that might somewhat reduce that demand. This is an important factor in a number of agricultural/environmental tensions, which I’ll get to in a moment.The second measure that has been taken to expand agricultural production historically has generally been to add water.Add fertilizer, add water; you can get more food out of the same piece of land. So what you see here is very little increase in total land under cultivation while we’ve had a massive increase in actual food production.But we may be seeing that change.So issue number one coming out of this, we already have high levels of surface water pollution, high enough to be significantly destructive of productivity and at high economic cost across the world, largely from agricultural nutrients.And we’re also seeing conflicts over water availability growing worldwide. The number of people subject to water scarcity – having on the average less water than is deemed necessary for basic survival – has doubled in the last 20 years.All of that, I think, is going to lead to significant new land use conflicts. Just at the point where we have an agreement coming out of Cancun on forest preservation, we’re going to see increased pressure at the agricultural forest frontier.In Indonesia, for example, there’s just a sharp rise in very profitable palm oil production, which is both for food and for biodiesel. In Brazil, there’s a sharp rise in both cattle and soy production; again, pushing on the Amazon frontier.This will be a year in which the commitments of countries like Brazil and Indonesia to reduce deforestation come up against the pressures created by the demand for biofuels for meat and for food. And I think that you can look for increased pressure on both the companies that produce biofuels – for instance, palm oil producers, who are already responding to pressures to make their activities more sustainable – and increased pressures on food producers, particularly meat importers, to find ways to produce at the frontier without destruction of forests.So Tom could tell us more about this, but there have been some significant agreements by some of the major multinational companies who are meat producers in Brazil to stay away from the use of land that has been just cut from the forest.There’s one other very interesting new factor here. You know how in the 1970s, as energy prices went up, there began to be an emphasis on energy efficiency. And we’ve had a sort of 40-year discussion about how much you could get the same services for less energy. It’s still going on; it’s still the best opportunity.Well, the same is true of food. The estimates for the United States, I think, are that 40% of food is wasted. I think we’re going to see an emerging emphasis on food efficiency. And I think we’re going to see an emerging emphasis on the use of degraded lands, rather than virgin forest, for agricultural expansion, which will reflect new technology. There’s about a billion acres of degraded forestland that would be used for agriculture to protect the Amazon and the Indonesian forests.Energy choices, energy fuel, water, land choices. The next is about mobility. I love this story.During 2011, something like 20 to 25 new all-electric vehicles or plug-in electric hybrid vehicles are going to hit the US market. GE, Hertz, Enterprise, numerous companies and the Government Services Agency have all announced in advance that they will make very large-scale fleet purchases of EVs during the coming year. GE has committed to 25,000 EVs; basically, their whole sales force will be driving electric vehicles.And Americans are going to have their first large-scale experience with what many people think will be the car of the future, and will encounter some important issues. For instance, because there haven’t been electric vehicles, we don’t have high-speed charging stations at every service station yet. So there’ll be real issues as people begin to demand that the transition is made so that they can use their new Leaf or their new Coda as they please.We will get to see whether people are concerned that the range for existing pure electric vehicles is limited, or whether in fact most of us spend most of our time driving short distances, and people are looking for an electric vehicle to serve that need. That will drive the shift between a plug-in hybrid and a pure electric.As you see from the prices on these cars, they all cost close to twice what an equivalent internal combustion-driven car would cost. We’ll see whether consumers decide that the annual savings and the other benefits of these vehicles are sufficient to make it worth purchasing them, and how quickly the fleet purchases drive down the prices.So if you were to drive one of these vehicles at current gasoline prices, you’d – depending on your driving habits, obviously – save something close to $1,000 a year. You wouldn’t pay yourself back for the difference in cost, not at current gasoline prices, not at these purchase prices. But you’d get a significant benefit.There also are interesting questions about the degree of environmental benefit from shifting to electric vehicles. If you drive an electric vehicle in an area, most of whose electricity comes from coal, you get about a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions. If the mix goes to gas, you’ll get much higher reductions in CO2 emissions. That’s going to be an important challenge for you as policymakers; for instance, as EPA makes the decision about how it’s trying to shift the US fleet in the future.So the advent of electric vehicles is one issue. It will also be a global issue. The Chinese are trying to put a million of these on the road in the next couple of years. They have subsidies for buyers that are much larger than US subsidies, as does Europe.But the other, second issue about mobility can’t be solved by electric vehicles. Congestion is the same whether your car burns gasoline or runs off a battery. Safety issues are the same whatever kind of vehicle. And for rapidly growing economies like India, China and Brazil, this is becoming an issue of intense importance.China has made a very interesting call on this. Their intercity air transit is already totally jammed, and the demand for mobility is steadily rising. In 2011, or more probably in 2012, China will reach the point, after four years of working on a high-speed rail, where they have more miles of high-speed rail in China than all the rest of the world combined. They are going to invest $120 billion in the next two years. The trains are now traveling at over 200 miles an hour, and within another year or two will be traveling at over 300 miles an hour, thereby completely eliminating all the benefits of air travel for less than a 1,000-mile trip.These are spectacular new technologies. And a key issue that’s emerging here is the Chinese are making such a massive investment that they’re going to dominate the technology in this, and they will be the world’s suppliers of high-speed rail. While they’re investing over $120 billion, we’re mostly canceling the plans that had been made for high-speed rail and investing a few billion dollars out the stimulus.So this is intercity transit. There’s also the question of within-city transportation. I don’t know if you get to travel very much in developing country megacities, but movement is a major challenge. In Washington, you can schedule six meetings a day and actually imagine that you could do it. In Sao Paulo or Mumbai, two is the absolute maximum, because it’s so difficult to move around.I just wanted to talk about one trend and brag a little bit. This is my one advertisement for WRI. We have a Sustainable Transport Center that has been a catalyst for the development of what I see as a solution that’s just going to explode in the coming years – rapid transit buses traveling on dedicated lanes on a schedule, moving huge numbers of people. We are a think tank. We’re an analytical organization, but this little Center has already moved over a billion of people, saving them 350 million hours of transit time and avoiding huge amounts of pollution.Bus rapid transit is cheap. It can be implemented fast. And we’re going to see it expanding rapidly because developing country megacities just need to do something immediately, the jam is so bad.That is particularly going to be true of Brazil. Brazil is glad to be the host for the Rio Plus 20 meetings in 2012, the World Cup, and the Olympics; the World Cup in multiple venues.It is absolutely essentially that Brazil solve transportation problems in order to entertain those events. The last time I headed for the airport from downtown Sao Paulo, the trip, which is less than 17 miles, took close to three hours.And Brazil, in fact, has a massive investment plan under way. This will be an interesting challenge for the new president Dilma, a huge infrastructure challenge. They plan to build 500 kilometers of bus rapid transit, 27 kilometers of light rail, 48 kilometers of monorail, and a high-speed rail link between Rio and Sao Paulo in the next two years.Will it happen, Tom? If you were under the illusion that China might be moving quickly, and maybe India, but Brazil wasn’t, it’s wrong. There’s just going to be an explosion of change around all of this. And transit is going to be a symbol of it as they develop these new facilities.So 2010 ended with an environmental success, a modest one, the agreement in Cancun. I wanted to talk a little bit about a couple things to look for coming out of the Cancun meetings, and then say why I actually think that’s not where the action is.I refer to Cancun as “Copencun”, because I think that it essentially finished the business that was done at Copenhagen. The world accepted what was done at Copenhagen and ratified it in Cancun. The targets that had been included in the Copenhagen Declaration were legitimized in an agreement at Cancun. They’ve become part of the Framework Convention, and the follow-up on those targets will be under the Framework Convention.There was an agreement about transparency and reporting that was a very important step forward. There was an agreement about funding. There was an agreement about forests. If anybody has questions, we can talk more about this, but you all covered it a month, so I’m not going to spend a lot of time on it.It was very important not to fail in Cancun. A failure could have obstructed action. But the success isn’t going to drive action. It’s the other way around; the action drove the success. The action is at the national level and the sectoral level.So some things to look for. Well, I’ve listed some of the decisions that still need to be made following up on Cancun, but I think the bigger things are not up on that.First, there’s the question of whether Europe decides to up its target from 20% to 30% reduction. That issue is very much alive and will be resolved soon in a difficult time for Europe economically.But much more interesting is what’s happening in China, India, Brazil, and in fact in the poorest countries in the world. China’s 12th Five-Year Plan is full of powerful commitments for reduced carbon intensity, improved energy efficiency, changed technologies. They will reduce by six billion tons from business as usual.They have not only massive renewables investment, they have a very strong renewables law that requires utilities to buy clean energy, which they are enforcing. I talked about their investment in high-speed rail. They’re making massive investments in smart grids so they can move their renewable power around the country.They have a huge building energy efficiency plan, which will be expanded in the 12th Five-Year Plan. They’ve made a commitment at the regional and local level to greater transparency, so the government can better track compliance with the 12th Five-Year Plan, which is quite remarkable in a society which doesn’t make data publicly available. And the Party Congress was full of clear commitments to reduce carbon intensity.What’s said in Congress here isn’t necessarily a way to tell what the future of the country is, but the dialogue in the Chinese Communist Party Congress is much more controlled. And when the country that has, for 20 years, put absolute, total emphasis on growth and development begins to talk about a kind of growth, low carbon growth, it’s a very significant shift.India was an interesting player at Cancun, some people would say rescued the Cancun Agreement by advocating the notion that developing, as well as developed, countries should make commitments. But that reflects what India is doing domestically. India has adopted a coal tax. The funds are being used to be part of a 20-gigawatt commitment to renewables. They have an energy efficiency trading scheme; essentially a cap and trade scheme, and set of other clean energy incentives.I talked a little bit about Brazil. Dilma, in her inaugural address, committed to continuing the strong environmental policies and climate commitments of her predecessor, a very interesting move for someone who was perceived as not very interested in the green agenda. This is a very strongly populist politician who had been one of the advocates against the green agenda within the previous administration. But you’ll recall in the elections, the Green Party candidate got 20% of the vote. And I think that got the president’s attention.Brazil is the only developing country that’s made a commitment to an absolute cap, 2.1 billion tons per year. They have a large-scale energy efficiency program. They have the best biofuels program in the world, sugar cane ethanol. There will be breakthroughs probably in this year in terms of the capacity to produce ethanol from sugar cane, improved sugar cane.Sao Paulo’s state, which is 30% of the Brazilian economy, has a statute that was enacted last year based on the California commitment, which commits them to major reductions in technology shifts. In fact, the company Johnson Controls, which sells a lot of energy efficiency materials, did a worldwide survey and found business executives outside the United States, in the developing world, twice as likely to say they would make major investments in energy efficiency in the next year as those in the US.Okay, that’s China, India and Brazil. One more observation about this. Every five years, the World Bank’s client countries submit development strategies. In 2005, those countries submitted their development strategies and 15% of them mentioned climate change. In 2010, they submitted the strategies and 81% put climate change as one of the top three priorities.This is an issue that has moved outside the negotiations among environment ministers to become a very significant part of development planning globally. Those countries, those poorest countries, are in fact where some of the most rapid economic growth is taking place, and they see it as a necessity to deal with climate issues.Which brings us to the other outstanding issue to watch about the follow-up on Cancun, the one country that everybody thinks probably will not meet its commitments, the US. WRI did a study – Some of you have seen it. Are there copies in the back? There are copies in the back, yes – of all of the existing authorities that the federal government and state governments have to reduce emissions over the next ten years, and how much could be achieved under those.I’m not going to go into a detailed discussion. Franz is one of the authors of that study. He’d be happy to talk to anybody who’d like more information. I would just point out, how far we get with that depends not only on whether the Congress tries to block EPA action, but how far the Administration decides to go, because it’s not just about EPA. It’s about EPA, the Department of Energy, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Agriculture.If there is a government-wide push to meet the President’s 17% commitment, which was reiterated by our negotiators in Cancun, it is possible to do that. If there is not a government-wide push, the US will be one of the countries that does not fulfill its commitments.One last set of comments. This is really a perplexity. It’s a question to watch. It’s absolutely clear that the rhetoric in the 2008 (sic) Congressional elections was pretty anti-environmental, and especially anti-climate and anti-cap and trade. That’s the received wisdom out of the election.But we’re seeing companies pumping money into green advertising. There was one just this morning, I found it in my Times. This is a Panasonic ad. So what’s going on here? This is GE; GE’s been at it for six years now, with ecoimagination. Caterpillar. Nike. Why is that the politics is going one way and the corporate advertising and the corporate commitments are going another?I’ve asked a number of business executives, and it is certainly clear that they continue to get in their consumer surveys strong indications that their customers care about whether the company is environmentally sensitive and whether the products are environmentally preferable. Not necessarily that they’ll spend twice as much, but they care. So companies are investing real money in positioning themselves as green.Secondly, I think there’s another phenomenon, and I’ll end with this. There are a number of companies we’ve worked with over the last five years who are very strong advocates of the need for energy policy and greenhouse gas reduction. And they’re looking up and they’re saying, “The government should have done this. We thought the government was going to do this. It isn’t going to. Now we have to figure out what we’re going to do on our own.”That’s something to watch: What do they do in the coming year? Not in terms of policy, not what do they advocate in Washington, but what do they actually do in the coming year?Thank you all very much. Let’s go to questions. Yes?ED FELKER: Hi, I’m Ed Felker with Energy/Guardian. Could you talk about the future of the Climate Action Partnership? Do they have a role in this town anymore? Or is it more a state and, as you say, an individual company issue?JONATHAN LASH: The United States Climate Action Partnership was formed four years ago by a set of companies and environmental groups who coalesced around the notion that it was essential that the US enact economy-wide, mandatory legislation to reduce greenhouse gases, and ultimately agreed that cap and trade was the right way to proceed.We were very actively engaged in the debates in 2008/2009/2010. Obviously, the legislation didn’t pass, and it’s not going to pass this year, or next year.USCAP met recently. The members have agreed that they continue to be committed to that set of principles, the notion that we need mandatory, economy-wide legislation to move ahead, not only for environmental reasons, but, much more importantly, for competitiveness and economic reasons, that the kind of partnership we have can be useful, and we’ve agreed to keep USCAP in existence for the time being and reassess what’s going to be possible.ZULIMA PALACIO: Zulima Palacio, Voice of America Television. I wonder if you left, I think, an important factor to watch around the world, which is called population, did you leave it out on purpose? Because I think it’s quite important. How do you see the factor of population playing a role here?JONATHAN LASH: So I did mention it in terms of the food/fuel/land/water issue. It’s a fundamental driver. I didn’t talk about it because I don’t see a particular story to watch about it in the current year. Of course, the expansion of population, with the expansion of economies is what creates the demands that cause the problems that environmentalists try to address. But I didn’t see the hook for this particular year around that issue.JEFF JOHNSON: Jeff Johnson, with Chemical Engineering News. You mentioned earlier, when you were talking about Congress, you said if Congress didn’t come up with some sort of an action dealing with climate change over the next six months, utilities were going to – I guess that’s what you meant – were going to ask for that. I’m just kind of curious, if you would elaborate a little bit on that.But also, are there other areas that, despite the posturing that’s going on now in the House and inaction, confusion on the part of the Senate right now, what other issues like that might come to the fore, despite the fights in Congress?JONATHAN LASH: So what I said was, after the question of whether Congress is going to block EPA action plays out, and people have a clearer idea of where we’re going, if there hasn’t been a significant change, utilities have an urgent need for certainty. They need answers to the question of, what’s the future cost of CO2 emissions, what are the regulations going to be for conventional pollutants, and so forth, and therefore, have an interest in having Congress address that question. I wouldn’t say that’s highly probable, but I think it’s something to watch for. I know that there have been discussions of under what circumstances they might seek legislation.Your broader question, I do think there is a possibility, not a large one, that a bill like the one Senator Lugar introduced in the last Congress might move, that deals with a broad range of energy efficiency issues. There’s huge potential for economic savings with energy efficiency investments, and the number of structural obstacles to that taking place. So I could imagine a debate on that issue.I know there are a number of advocates for some kind of clean energy standard that would either create incentives for, or require a percent of electricity come from non-carbon sources. I think that’s a more difficult possibility at the current time. But the most likely outcome is nothing.LISA FRIEDMAN: Hi, I’m Lisa Friedman from ClimateWire. I have a question on the international stuff. When we came back from Copenhagen last year, there was a lot of talk, and at your beginning-of-the-year talk as well, about the C5, about Brazil, India, China, South Africa, the basic group, and how they acted as a negotiating force. And I’m wondering, outside of the individual actions that are happening in some of the countries that you talked about, how did you see this group play out as a negotiating group on the global stage since Copenhagen and going forward? Are they still the force to be reckoned with that you kind of described this time last year?JONATHAN LASH: Let me make a couple of comments and then ask Jennifer to add something.First, I think it is remarkable that the outcome tracked as closely to what the US was hoping for as it did. Todd Stern and Jonathan Pershing played a hand of ones and twos, and managed to win pretty big. They should really be congratulated for that.But that was possible because of the rule that China, India, Brazil, in particular, played. China appears to have come to Cancun – I hope you will correct me; Jennifer was there, I was not – but they appear to have come determined not to be blamed for a failure. Jairam Ramesh came prepared to take significant risks to create success. Brazil was very interested in keeping this issue moving. And I think those three made a huge difference in what was possible.Jennifer, anything to add?JENNIFER MORGAN: I would agree with that. I think the additional factor that occurred over the year though was, with those actors, the C5 moving, and then the Cartagena Dialogue, which was a group of smaller developing countries – Colombia, Costa Rica, even small island nations – working with Europe, and Australia – which is another country to watch, because they’re going to be maybe putting their target up a bit more as well – to create a coalition of the willing, so to speak, within the negotiations, to basically operationalize the Copenhagen Accord.JONATHAN LASH: I haven’t been looking over to this side. Further questions? All the way in the back.KATE SHEPPARD: Kate Sheppard from Mother Jones Magazine. Also going back to the international front, how much of an issue, do you think, Cancun, Kyoto continue to be a huge issue, they didn’t really answer that question, they pushed it off till next year, it’s not going to get any easier? How much of an issue is that going to be going forward in the international conversation? The US role it would be interesting to draw upon as well since they keep saying, “We had nothing to do with Kyoto,” which is clearly not the case.JONATHAN LASH: I’d better let Jennifer take that, because I’m likely to say something I shouldn’t.JENNIFER MORGAN: Jennifer Morgan. I think it’s going to continue. The Kyoto Protocol and the future of it is going to continue to be a major issue in the negotiations. But I think things have gotten much harder, rather than easier. And I think if you watch the developments of what is occurring in Japan and Russia and their stances on it in Cancun, you see that the will is not building; it’s rather receding on the Kyoto side.I think that the real question looks to both Europe and Australia as two major kind of players in that, to see if they want to continue. But it’ll continue to be a conflict moving forward.JONATHAN LASH: An unresolved issue.ALAN SCHLAIFER: Alan Schlaifer with the Wharton Club Green Business Summit. One of the areas that you haven’t dealt with that might have a tremendous impact in reducing pollution, congestion, energy use is telework in the United States and abroad. What do you see as the potential? How can it best made to be consistent with workplace needs now and in the future?JONATHAN LASH: I’m not an expert, but I do see companies increasingly adopting flexible telework policies, in part because it just is so difficult for their workforces to live close to where they end up. They travel so much, so flexibility adds to productivity.We certainly, WRI increasingly uses that. And as organizations are globalized, it’s inevitable that you rely on different forms of communication anyway.But in terms of the numbers, I haven’t tracked the numbers. Maybe you have, and I don’t know whether that’s becoming a significant factor in reducing vehicle-miles-traveled. There’s nothing that reduces emissions faster in the US than reducing vehicle-miles-traveled.RAPHAEL ISAAC: Raphael Isaac. I’m an independent consultant in transportation and energy issues. I have just a couple quick questions. You talked a lot about BRT becoming more common and having a strong role in developing countries’ megacities. I’m wondering what you see, if you see that potentially happening here in the US, or if you see potential obstacles to BRT. That’s my first question.My second question was, there was an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal, I think in November, some policy folks over in California, and they were saying that, at least in the US, one issue is that maybe the government, both at the federal and state levels, is investing primarily in the current technologies and incentives for companies to build on those, and not enough on research for improving the technologies so that the technologies can become less dependent on these incentives. I’m wondering kind of what your, if any, input on how you feel about that.JONATHAN LASH: Let me respond to the second question, and I have two of my colleagues from EMBARQ sitting right behind you, who I’ll ask to respond to the first.That’s why carbon price would be a great measure, whether through the direct imposition of a price, or through cap and trade, because then it leaves it up to investors to decide which technologies are going to provide the best opportunity to reduce carbon in the future.I actually think the investments that were part of the Stimulus Bill were pretty well distributed between current development and future investment in future technologies. But there are some problems that need to be solved now, like the grid. We have a grid that just won’t support full clean energy development, and it’s important to invest in changing it.Aileen or Marissa, do you want to–? Introduce yourself first and then–AILEEN CARRIGAN: My name is Aileen Carrigan and I’m a transportation planner with EMBARQ, which is the sustainable transportation group at WRI.It’s a great question about BRT in the US. Most of EMBARQ’s work is outside of the US, and we’ve been involved in a lot of the successful BRT projects in South America, and increasingly in Asia. And it’s a question we get a lot – is it feasible to implement BRT in the US? And I think that there have been some successes already. New York City’s just opened a rapid, we could say BRT-lite system in New York City. LA has the Silver Line [Orange Line]. Cleveland has the Healthline. So there are smaller-scale BRT systems already.I think there will continue to be a dialogue here in the US. I think one of the challenges is getting the US audience to understand the full benefits of BRT, and that it’s possible to move a high capacity of passengers with a bus-based system, as opposed to a rail system.The most famous system in Bogota moves 1.6 million passengers a day. Whereas, I believe Washington’s Metro moves just over a million passengers a day. So it’s very possible to move those volumes of people with buses.And I think the critical question is not BRT versus a rail system. I think where cities are short on capital funds, it becomes BRT versus no transport investment at all.So I think those are important questions and difficult questions that the US is facing. But there is some movement in that area now.JONATHAN LASH: I have to say, I was not a BRT believer when we started working on this. And one of the first projects we got involved with is Avenida de los Insurgentes in Mexico City, which is one the longest, largest avenues in any major city in the world.The notion that you were going to clear traffic out of two lanes of Avenida de los Insurgentes and move scheduled buses up and down it just seemed far-fetched to me. But it’s running. It’s moving, how many passengers a day, Aileen, do you know?AILEEN CARRIGAN: 450,000 passengers. [Note: this is the number of passengers Mexico’s entire BRT system moves per day.]JONATHAN LASH: And these are people who were spending four hours getting to and from work, and how it’s a half-hour trip. And it costs a tiny fraction of what a subway costs, can be built in a tiny fraction of the time, which is why I’ve become a believer. It’s a solution that mayors can implement during their term.I’ll take two more questions.CATHY CASH: Cathy Cash with Platts Electricity Publications. Just revisiting the potential for action on Capitol Hill, if Congress is, as expected, unlikely to act on climate legislation for the next couple years, and they also do not get the support to block EPA going forward on regulations, can EPA give the power sector the certainty it needs on carbon prices?JONATHAN LASH: This is the question I’ve been waiting to toss to Franz, who is an expert. I think that’s exactly what EPA’s going about doing. The question is, can they do it in an adequately flexible way. And do you want to talk about that, Franz?FRANZ LITZ: Sure, happy to. The administrator of EPA has said what she’d like to do, and not just in the power sector, but in sector by sector, is attempt to create that kind of certainty. And so, early this year, we will have, by mid-spring, new, what are called map[?] standards, toxics from power plants. We have new regulations for conventional pollutants affecting power plants. And so, part of that regulatory certainty angle is to address all of the various regulatory burdens that the power sector will face together.I think Jonathan’s point that you might see utilities come back to Congress is a good one, because it’s not as clean and neat and simple as you might get from Congressional action. And so, that’s a key issue to watch.And the role of states is a key issue, because the Clean Air Act, in particular, is a state/federal balancing and partnership. And so, there’s necessarily in that mix some differences across the states. Which, of course, if you’re a utility that operates across multiple states, you’d rather see uniformity nationwide. Which is one of the reasons why Jonathan’s point about watching utilities to see if they’ll [1:02:28] to ask for uniformity is very much on point.MARC GUNTHER: I have sort of a nitpicky question and then a general one. The nitpicky one is, on your slide about projected emissions under different scenarios, I see a gap between what you call the go-getter scenario and the 17% reduction. And I thought you had said if the government acts aggressively, you could get to the 17%.JONATHAN LASH: I was hoping nobody was going to notice that, but I can answer the question.MARC GUNTHER: Okay, and it relates to the second questions, which is, on your most optimistic day, what is the path that you see to getting emissions reductions that scientists say would be prudent? Like what’s your best case scenario for getting to where we need to go?JONATHAN LASH: I want to get to the chart first. There it is. What we looked at were existing authorities on which there is clear peer-reviewed data on what kind of reductions you can get. So there were a lot of things that we didn’t even look at to get this scenario.We didn’t look at what the Department of Agriculture or Interior could do with land use, because we didn’t have peer-reviewed data, so there was just no way to give you a legitimate estimate. But if they push hard, they can make a significant different there. That’s why I believe that extra 3% could be achieved.But your other, bigger question, that’s one we obviously agonize about all the time, because the science says that we should be doing way more than what was agreed to in Copenhagen, and then essentially legitimized in Cancun.And my premise has always been that once we begin the process of decarbonization, there will be business and economic incentives that essentially create a competition among countries to be the producers of those technologies. And that competition will start what is essentially an avalanche of a shift. So it’ll go much faster than required, driven by factors other than policy. But policy is necessary is to get it started.So I think one of the most interesting phenomena is China is moving so far into the lead in competition a number of clean energy technologies that we don’t have to worry as much about whether they’ll really keep their commitments because they have a commercial drive to do it. This is what they’re selling to the world.I think that phenomena can happen more broadly. And frankly, it’s the reluctance of the US that’s the biggest restraint right now.But this is going to look different in 2020.END WRI President Jonathan Lash previews the key environmental issues to watch in 2011.

Five Storylines to Watch Headed into Fall Camp (Part 1)

first_imgIt’s officially football season. There’s less than 40 days until opening kickoff. Mike Gundy’s tweeting about the first practice of fall camp. And the man KP has the 2016 football preview up and running.With players reporting on Monday and the first practice set for Tuesday (Yes, next Tuesday!), here are five storylines to watch as we prepare for the 2016 season.5. Mike Gundy’s HairI’m all in on the Gundy Mullet. It’s flashy, strange, and slightly arrogant — everything you would expect from a former college quarterback who doesn’t giveth a rip about your opinion. It got quite a bit of play at Big 12 media days, but if it continues, this could be something OSU could play to it’s advantage to gain national attention both in the media and in recruiting. It sounds strange, but the more attention on the second largest school in the state, the better. No matter how it comes.4. Freshman emergingOklahoma State returns a pretty experienced veteran group on both sides of the ball. But there are positions I will definitely be keeping an eye on as fall camp unfolds, as there are several intriguing and talented freshman who I think could make an impact. Don’t be surprised to hear some whispers of good things coming from wide receiver Dillon Stoner, running back Justice Hill, cornerback Madre Harper, and quarterback Keondre Wudtee. If I’m taking bets, I think all four will see the field as true freshman.3. Who stands out in a crowded stable of running backsWith the veteran presence of Barry J. Sanders officially on campus, is he primed to take over a starting role and unseat returning starter Chris Carson or Rennie Childs? Or will Chris Carson, with a full year under his belt and the learning curve presumably shortened, grab the reigns at No. 1? That’s my pick for the moment. Behind him, there will be tons of talent vying for playing time with Barry J., Rennie Childs, Jeff Carr, Jakeem Johnson and Justice Hill all in the fold. As fall approaches, we’ll know a lot more about who is in line to get serious playing time, and who may be falling down the depth chart.2. Junior college players transitioningOSU has several JUCO guys coming in who will make an immediate impact, and some who may have a large learning curve. Guys who I think will play right away are defensive tackle DeQuinton Osborne, offensive guard Larry Williams, and defensive end Tralund Webber, who I think will be more of a rotational player. Beyond them, offensive tackle Shane Richards is on campus, and cornerback Malik Kearse is as well. Both will be at the least quality backups at their respective positions.1. Who will be the backup quarterback?When the Oil Baron emerges behind QB1 in September, I’m going to look like a complete idiot. But I have all my chips pushed into the middle for Keondre Wudtee, and the fact that the No. 2 position is still open after having Cornelius and Kolar all spring competing says a lot about how confident they are with their current options. Cornelius, Kolar, Wudtee, and Burns all seem to be contending for the No. 2 spot, and I would suspect given Wudtee’s unique skill set as a dual-threat, he could be the guy going into the fall.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Mark Dantonio Appeared To Subtweet Jim Harbaugh, Michigan Before Deleting Tweet

first_imgJim Harbaugh and Mark Dantonio shaking hands after a game.EAST LANSING, MI – OCTOBER 29: Head coach Jim Harbaugh Michigan Wolverines shakes hands with head coach Mark Dantonio of the Michigan State Spartans after a 32-23 Michigan win at Spartan Stadium on October 29, 2016 in East Lansing, Michigan. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Earlier tonight, Michigan lost a commitment from three-star defensive lineman Rashad Weaver. Weaver claimed the Wolverines staff stopped reaching out to him, and that head coach Jim Harbaugh had told him that there was only a 50/50 chance he’d have a scholarship for him on National Signing Day next week. Shortly after the Weaver news began circulating, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio dropped a somewhat-cryptic tweet consisting only of the phrase “The righteous shall prevail.” This would appear to be a not-so-veiled reference to the Michigan situation, and Dantonio quickly deleted the tweet. But, Twitter being Twitter, you know someone got a screen shot of it before it disappeared.Lol mark dantonio quickly deleted this but I think we all know what he was referencing pic.twitter.com/G1YQa4QdW9— D2 (@ddycio) January 26, 2016 To add to the intrigue, Michigan State recruiting coordinator Curtis Blackwell tweeted the exact same thing.The righteous shall prevail….— Curtis Blackwell II (@MSUrecruiter) January 26, 2016Seems pretty clear what the intent was here. There is never a dull moment in college football recruiting, that’s for sure.[ Maize ‘N’ Brew ]last_img read more

Vinicius feels no pressure of replacing Ronaldo

first_imgVinicius Junior claims to have felt no pressure of replacing Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, with it not his intention to try and emulate the achievements of a “legend”.The Brazilian youngster arrived at Santiago Bernabeu during the summer of 2018, having had a deal in place with the Blancos for a year prior to that.As he made his way to the Spanish capital, an iconic figure was on his way out. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo made a shock switch to Juventus after nine years with Madrid, leaving a sizeable void for those left behind to try and fill.Vinicius, at just 18 years of age, was never going to be the man to step into the shoes of an all-time great.He is being tipped to reach the top, with there plenty of potential in his game to still be unlocked, but the South American claims there is no expectation on him to become a talisman at this early stage of his career.Vinicius told AS on following in Ronaldo’s footsteps: “Cristiano is Cristiano, he’s a club legend.“He did what no one has ever done. But I’ve never felt as though I am replacing him. I want to play and help Madrid.”Vinicius took in 31 appearances for Real across the 2018-19 campaign, recording four goals.He believes he has made the right choice in linking up with the Blancos while still in his teens, adding: “In my case, I think it was the right time.“I was playing well for Flamengo but I also had the margin to improve. I evolved more in three months in Madrid there than I would have in a year back home. It was good for me to start and then play in the best club in the world.”There is the promise of much more to come from Vinicius, with an exciting prospect getting the chance to learn on a daily basis from some of the finest talents on the planet.He added on his experience to date: “Training is different. Most of the training sessions there are better than the actual games. And in training, no one wants to lose, all of the players want to improve every day.“There are players like Sergio Ramos and Benzema who, even though they’re over 30, train harder than everyone else. The inspiration you get from being next to the best players also helps, that makes you grow.”last_img read more

French Open 2019: Stuttering Osaka braced for tough match against Victoria Azarenka

Trump calls new border wall a worldclass security system

first_imgSan Diego: President Donald Trump signed his name Wednesday on a newly constructed section of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, calling it a “world-class security system” that will be virtually impenetrable. Trump toured a section of the border wall in San Diego’s Otay Mesa area. It was a return trip for the president, who traveled there in March 2018 to see border wall prototypes that authorities later destroyed to make way for 14 miles (22.4 kilometers) of steel, concrete-filled bollards currently under construction. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USBefore construction began, the border in Otay Mesa was protected with low fencing. “It was like a sheet metal and people would just knock it over like just routinely,” Trump said, standing with construction workers and top Customs, Army Corps of Engineers and homeland security officials. Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said that since construction has begun on the new barrier, 30 to 50 people a day are trying to cross there instead of 300 to 500. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”The traffic in this sector has dropped dramatically,” Morgan said. Morgan defended the project, dismissing those who call it the “president’s vanity wall.” “I’m here to tell you that’s false,” he said, telling reporters that Trump reached out to border experts to find out what they needed. “You listened to the agents,” he told Trump. Trump highlighted features of the wall, which he said have been studied by three other countries. He said the wall absorbs heat “You can fry an egg on that wall.” The concrete goes deep into the ground to prevent tunneling. And agents can see through it to spot possible threats on the Mexican side of the border, he said. “When the wall is built, it will be virtually impossible to come over illegally, and then we’re able to take border control and put them at points of entry,” Trump said. He heaped praise on the Mexican government, especially for sending tens of thousands of troops to its northern and southern borders to help slow the flow of migrants headed toward the United States. He said President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador “has been great.” “We’re all thrilled,” Trump said. “You know Mexico has never done anything to impede people from pouring into our country and now they’re doing just the opposite. They’ve really been incredible.” The president reveled in details of construction, saying Border Patrol and military officials persuaded him to adopt more expensive designs. He said he dropped a preference for solid concrete, instead opting for concrete-filled steel bollards that allow agents to see through to Mexico to spot assailants throwing rocks or other projectiles. He agreed to go along with barriers that are 30 feet high and double-layered in heavily traveled areas. “It’s the Rolls-Royce version,” Trump said. When Trump asked Army Corps Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite to explain how technology embedded in the wall alerts agents to illegal activity, he was told, “Sir, there could be some merit in not discussing it.” Semonite offered new details on the pace of construction that underscored how quickly the administration plans to move. It has built 66 miles (106 kilometers) so far, has 251 miles (403 kilometers) in various stages of construction at 17 sites and contracts for 163 miles (262 kilometers) planned in the next 90 days, the general said. Additional land on private property is expected to take more time. Crews are installing 270 panels a day, each one with eight bollards. Trump, whose construction targets have shifted, said he expects to build up to about 550 miles (885 kilometers) of wall along the 1,954-mile (3,126-kilometer) border and said the administration will pause at about 400 miles (643 kilometers) to assess what more is needed. Trump said cost concerns led him to put aside his preference to paint the wall black, which absorbs heat. He said the wall was “a good, strong rust color” and could be painted later. Trump is riding a string of wins on the wall and on immigration in general. Arrests on the Mexican border arrests plunged in August, well beyond the usual summer dip, from a 13-year high reached in May. Arrests are still relatively high, topping 50,000 in 10 of the last 11 months, compared with only eight months over the previous decade. Last week, the Supreme Court gave Trump a green light to deny asylum to anyone who passes through another country on the way to the U.S. border with Mexico without having first sought protection in the third country. The Pentagon recently diverted 3.6 billion from 127 military construction projects to build 175 miles (280 kilometers) of barriers on the border. Trump had promised during the 2016 presidential campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall.last_img read more

Constant rollbacks will worsen economic situation Congress

first_imgNew Delhi: The Congress on Friday said the government’s “constant rollbacks” may give an “impression of progress through stock market bumps” but these will lead to worsening of the economic situation and are unlikely to revive investments.Questioning the timing of the corporate tax cut announcement, the opposition party alleged that it has been dictated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘HowdyModi’ event in the United States. Terming ‘HowdyModi’ the “world’s most expensive event ever”, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said he is “amazed” at what Prime Minister Modi is ready to do for a stock market bump ahead of the event in Houston. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh”Amazing what PM is ready to do for a stock market bump during his Howdy Indian Economy jamboree. At + 1.4 Lakh Crore Rs. the Houston event is the world’s most expensive event, ever! But, no event can hide the reality of the economic mess ‘HowdyModi’ has driven India into (sic),” Gandhi said on Twitter. The Congress party said in its official Twitter handle, “The constant rollbacks and erratic decisions taken by this government may give the impression of progress through stock market bumps but will further decrease investor confidence and lead to worsening of the economic situation in the country.” Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe government on Friday slashed the corporate tax rates for companies by almost 10 percentage points to 25.17 per cent and offered a lower rate to 17.01 per cent for new manufacturing firms to boost economic growth rate from a six-year low by incentivising investments to help create jobs. Congress leader Jairam Ramesh welcomed the reduction in corporate tax rates but expressed doubts on whether the step will revive investment. Asking whether it was the prime minister’s “trump card”, he said the government’s move does nothing to dispel the fear that pervades India Inc. “A headline-itis afflicted, panic-stricken Modi Sarkar has cut corporate tax rates less than 3 months after a Budget and 4 months before the next one. This is welcome but it is doubtful whether investment will revive. This does nothing to dispel fear that pervades in India Inc,” Ramesh said on Twitter. “Timing of FM announcement dictated by #HowdyModi event. PM can now say, ‘I have come to Texas promising lower Taxes’. Is this his ‘trump card’?,” the Congress leader asked. Another Congress leader, Abhishek Singhvi, said drastic reduction in corporate tax rate is good but the arbitrage between highest effective individual tax rate of 42 per cent and higher effective corporate rate of 25 per cent begins to look absurd. “Good: GOI, FM reduce corporate tax rate drastically. But arbitrage between highest individual tax rate (42% effective) and highest effective corporate rate of 25% begins to look even more absurd. If animal instincts are required for growth, I predict 35% Individual rate yields more than 42% (sic)!” he tweeted. Announcing the latest set of measures to jump-start flagging growth, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the reduction in tax rates has been done by promulgating an ordinance to an amendment to the Income Tax Act. Battling a six-year low economic growth and a 45-year high unemployment rate, Sitharaman announced the step two-and-half-months after presenting her maiden Budget, that was hailed as “development-friendly” and “future-oriented”. The fiscal measure announced by her will cost the government Rs 1.45 lakh crore in revenue annually. In the fourth phase of post-budget economic stimulus measures, Sitharaman cut base corporate tax for existing companies to 22 per cent from current 30 per cent and for new manufacturing firms, incorporated after October 1, 2019 and starting operations before March 31, 2023, to 15 per cent from current 25 per cent.last_img read more

Windows 10 now on more than 900 million devices

first_imgSan Francisco: Microsoft has revealed that there were more than 900 million devices running on Windows 10 and the company was also edging closer to its 1 billion mark by 2020. Microsoft said that there have been more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than in any previous year since it was introduced in 2015. “#Windows10 is on more than 900M devices! Thanks to our customers, we added more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than ever before.

(Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News Even at low levels a class of preservatives widely-used in consumer products like shampoos cosmetics body lotions and sunscreens can contribute to development of breast cancer suggests new research The estrogen-mimicking chemicals called parabens also have implications for other diseases that are influenced by estrogens the study noted These chemicals are considered estrogenic because they activate the same estrogen receptor as the natural hormone estradiol Studies have linked exposure to estradiol and related estrogens with an increased risk of breast cancer as well as reproductive problems As a result the use of parabens in consumer products increasingly has become a public health concern “Although parabens are known to mimic the growth effects of estrogens on breast cancer cells some consider their effect too weak to cause harm” said lead investigator Dale Leitman a gynecologist and molecular biologist at University California Berkeley in the US “But this might not be true when parabens are combined with other agents that regulate cell growth” Leitman noted However existing chemical safety tests which measure the effects of chemicals on human cells look only at parabens in isolation and fail to take into account that parabens could interact with other types of signaling molecules in the cells to increase breast cancer risk To better reflect what goes on in real life the researchers looked at breast cancer cells expressing two types of receptors: estrogen receptors and HER2 or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 The study demonstrated that parabens may be more potent at lower doses than previous studies have suggested which may spur scientists and regulators to rethink the potential impacts of parabens on the development of breast cancer The findings were published online in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives Watch Foodie promo For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Ruhi Bhasin | Mumbai | Published: May 11 2017 4:05 am Bombay High Court Top News The Bombay High Court recently directed the Union of India to nominate nodal officers in the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Law and Justice who will be responsible for ascertaining progress made in terms of service of notices and orders sent to foreign countries by courts in India The court has sought that the names of the nodal officers be communicated to the registrars of all high courts by early next month The directions were given when a division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice Anuja Prabhudesai was hearing an appeal filed by a man against a family court order in his application for granting permanent custody of his son that was rejected by the court The man’s estranged wife and son live in the USA “We find that in large number of matters notices are sent by court to foreign countries either through the Ministry of Home Affairs or through the Ministry of Law and Justice However there is no arrangement made by the ministries to communicate to the respective registrars of the high courts about the progress made in service of notices or orders We therefore direct both ministries to appoint nodal officers so that the registrars or courts can contact the officer to get requisite information about the service of such notices” said the court The man got married in London in 1999 and in 2002 the couple had a son in North Carolina in the United States of America Since there were constant fights between them the couple decided to stay separately While hearing the matter the court directed for a temporary custody of the child to be given to the father from August 10 to 19 this year and sought that the boy be brought to India by the mother for implementation of the orders The court pointed to the Hague Convention of 1965 in civil and criminal matters stating that the Central Authority in the United States of America has authorised an agency by the name Process Forward International and according to communication by the government all summons and orders are to be sent directly by the courts to the said agency Process Forward International “The order along with that of civil application shall now be forwarded by the registrar (judicial) to the agency of the Central Authority USA” ordered the court Moreover it has directed the department of Law and Justice of the Government of India to take up the matter with the Central Authority of the North Carolina State USA in terms of Article 5 of the treaty signed between the two governments on October 17 2001 on mutual legal assistance in criminal matter “Article 5 in the treaty applies to the execution of requests The Central Authority be requested to execute this order” added the bench While disposing of the matter the court has asked for copy of the orders to be served on the wife also The woman then filed an application for custody in USA court Her husband alleged that an ex-parte order of the custody of the minor was passed by the said court Subsequently in 2002 the father brought the child to India for performing religious ceremony Meanwhile the woman filed a petition for
