Long-standing head of Ireland’s construction workers fund to retire

first_imgHe told IPE his replacement, Anne Keogh, had started at the scheme at the beginning of July, and that he was in the process of handing over his responsibilities.Prior to joining CIF Pension Administration Services, Keogh was pensions manager at Aer Lingus, which has recently concluded negotations with the underfunded Irish Airlies Superannuation Scheme.She spent 20 years at the airline before departing last month and told IPE: ”I greatly enjoyed working at Aer Lingus and all the opportunities I had there, but I am delighted to be starting my new role.”I am looking forward to the challenges and continuing Pat’s great work within the ever-changing pensions landscape.”Ferguson said he hoped to join some new trustee boards as an independent trustee following his official retirement.“I would like to keep my hand in and give what contribution I can to the industry that reared me,” he said.“I have worked since I was 16, so it’s time now to take a rest.”He added that he had a “fairly large garden that needs to be controlled”.Ferguson said he was very happy about the condition in which he was leaving CWPS.“Administration and board-wise, the set-up couldn’t be much better than it is now,” he said. “We’ve good governance all round.”He said the fund had recently overhauled its structure, leading to his appointment as head of the trustee secretariat.The move away from the chief executive role reflects the fact the CWPS is not the trustee’s sole responsibility – instead being part and parcel of a wider benefit system – a retirement system for construction executives, one for self-employed builders and the sick-pay fund for the industry.Ferguson was upbeat about the industry’s future.“The construction industry is on the mend,” he said. “We’ve seen our numbers fall quite dramatically, and, hopefully, the scheme will now start to grow again.”However, he said the challenge facing the fund in future would be a requirement to compete for members in the open market – following a ruling in May last year that found the 1946 law underpinning Ireland’s registered employment agreements, the country’s collective bargaining arrangements, were unconstitutional. As a result, membership in the CWPS is no longer mandatory for the sector’s employees. Pat Ferguson, long-standing head of Ireland’s €1.3bn Construction Workers Pension Scheme (CWPS), is to retire in October.Ferguson, until recently chief executive of the scheme and currently head of the trustee secretariat, said he would be standing down prior to his 65th birthday.Active in the construction industry for more than three decades, he started at the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) in 1981 and assumed responsibility for pension arrangements in 1986.He has been with the predecessor to CWPS since 2000.last_img read more

Slovenia’s Triglav makes bid for pension fund manager

first_imgZavarovalnica Triglav, Slovenia’s biggest insurance company, has announced it intends to make a takeover bid for Skupna pokojninska družba, a major pensions provider within the country.Skupna deals exclusively in supplementary voluntary pension insurance, and manages €218m in assets on behalf of its 61,000 policyholders, giving it a 21% market share in Slovenia.            Triglav already holds 30% of Skupna’s shares.The other major shareholders are NLB Ljubljana – part of Slovenia’s largest international financial group – with 28%, and Gorenjska banka with 26%. The latter has agreed to sell its shares to Triglav under set conditions.Andrej Slapar, president of Triglav’s management board, said: “Our updated strategy focuses on the development of pension insurance products.“In view of demographic trends, we expect that, over time, the need for people to ensure their pension security will increase.“This means pension insurance will become more important in Slovenia and other countries.”Slapar added: “More active participation in the management of Skupna, as reflected by our takeover intention, is another step towards putting this strategy in place.”Last January, the Triglav Group, of which Zavarovalnica Triglav is the holding company, published its business strategy, amended to take into account the changing macroeconomic environment. The Triglav Group is planning further growth and development in key markets throughout Southeast Europe, to achieve a minimum 10% market share in all its foreign markets.The terms of the Skupna takeover must be published by 30 November.Slovenian brokerage Ilirika is acting as broker to the takeover.last_img read more

Indiana Lawmaker Reacts To Presidential Address

first_imgSenator Dan Coats (R-Ind)WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement after President Obama’s speech about the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL):“The president’s speech was a sharp, welcome reversal to his previous comments on foreign policy. He has finally grasped the true nature of the threat that ISIL poses, and his response to begin the process of taking down this so-called caliphate is welcome news.“The president incorporated in his speech many of the elements I have called for and that are necessary to achieve success. One is pursuing ISIL forces wherever they are, rather than his previous policy of using force only in Iraq. Also, the president’s call for coalition building is essential, but it is critical that moderate Muslim states play a significant role in this effort.“The president’s plan seemed to limit ground forces to the Iraqi Army and Syrian Free Army, both of which have not shown that they can match up to ISIL. The key here is to be resolute in doing what is necessary to defeat to ISIL. The president’s reference to using the same strategy we are using in Yemen and Somalia must be put in the context of the limited success we are having in these countries.“The American people need to understand that if we are to be successful, we are in for a long and protracted effort that will require a resolute commitment from the United States. The region and the world are looking to America and to President Obama for leadership.”last_img read more

Teaching Young Golfers

first_imgA lot of my golfing friends have indicated that the number of golfers and the condition of golf courses has dropped in recent years.  How do we get young athletes to play golf?  I think the answer is Junior Golf Camps.I believe these camps should be available at all types of golf courses whether they be private or public. The price should be reasonable so that we do not eliminate young people who may not be able to afford fancy camps.The camp should include 2 distinct parts.  One part of the camp should teach the skills required to play the game, and part two should be the etiquette of playing golf.  This would include what to wear, how to act, and proper care of the fairways and greens after taking a shot.  Like any sport–the younger you begin the more likely they will enjoy the experience.last_img read more

Moses still has eyes on the score

first_img “We can score more goals because we have got two prolific strikers,” Moses told LFC TV. “We can score two or three goals in every game because we have got enough quality players to do that. “We’ve been doing well so far, we just want to keep working hard in training and the games to score as many as we can. “We’ve got enough quality players to win games this season. Everyone is working hard together as a team. That’s what we need. We’ve got a good keeper as well, who has been helping us. “We just hope everyone is fit for every game that we play. Hopefully we can win as many games as we can to stay in the top four.” Moses has found himself playing both out wide and centrally behind the striker under manager Brendan Rodgers. Having lost his place in the starting line-up the forward, named Nigerian player of the year this week, is happy to play wherever and whenever he can. “Wherever the manager is willing to play me, I’m excited to play there,” he added. “I can play out wide, as a striker or anywhere up front, as long as the manager puts me in there to play. I’m ready to do the job for the team. “I’m enjoying it here, it’s a massive club. We’re doing well at the moment; we just want to keep the momentum going. “I want to keep working hard in training and doing what I’m good at, which is working hard for the team.” That is even more significant considering Liverpool have only league matches to play until the FA Cup begins for them in January. “I just want to score goals. I wanted to score around 20 goals this season,” said the 22-year-old, whose best scoring run was last season when he got 12 while playing league, European and Africa Cup of Nations matches. “We’ve still got lots of games to go so hopefully I can get up to that target. “I think I’ve got the ability to do that so I’m looking forward to every game. “When I first came, I was starting. Now, the manager has got a different view and he wants to mix things around a little bit. “I just have to be patient until my time comes. I’ll kick on from there and help the team.” Liverpool, as a side, are averaging two goals per game with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge having registered nine apiece already. However, the pair cannot be expected to shoulder the burden on their own and contributions need to come from elsewhere within the team. The Nigeria international scored on his debut for the Reds against Swansea in September soon after completing his temporary move from Chelsea. He has not scored again in a further eight games and with his last three appearances coming as a substitute he needs to get himself back in the side if he is to have a chance of getting close to his projected goal tally. On-loan Liverpool forward Victor Moses set himself an ambitious 20-goal target for the current season and he is still hopeful he can come close to delivering. Press Associationlast_img read more

Odemwingie Set to Join Bolton Wanderers

first_img“It’s tough being a free agent but I’m in great shape and hopefully a move should happen this week,” he had said earlier this week.“Mentally and physically I feel strong, when your body and heart is perfectly prepared then you wouldn’t lack the right motivation to succeed.“As you grow older it becomes tougher in football, you only need someone to believe in you and willing to take a chance.“I still have a lot to offer a team and I only need to show what I can do somewhere for people to believe that.”Odemwingie initially turned down a move from West Brom to Stoke in Mark Hughes’s first summer but arrived mid-season via a disappointing spell at Cardiff.He turned out to be one of Hughes’s key signings, providing pace and energy and sparking a surge up the table that secured Stoke the first of three successive ninth-placed finishes.According to papilonews.com, that summer he became the first Stoke player to score at a World Cup finals – but he suffered a major set-back when he endured an awful knee injury at the start of the following season, in the second half of a win at Manchester City.It was a long road back to fitness and he had to battle for a place in Hughes’s squad, extending his contract for another year but stuck on the fringes.He scored twice in Bristol City’s 6-0 win over Bolton in March and was on trial at Hull in the summer when Steve Bruce resigned as manager.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Osaze Peter Odemwingie was lined up for a medical yesterday evening as he prepares to sign for Bolton Wanderers.The former Stoke City favourite has been without a club since leaving the bet365 Stadium in the summer, having spent most of last season on loan at Bristol City.The Bolton News reported that the former Bendel Insurance player is due to train this weekend and could make his debut in League One at Bury on Monday.last_img read more

LA Clippers’ Doc Rivers likes his big, small lineups

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error That doesn’t mean anything will change stylistically upon the return of Griffin, perhaps sometime around March 1.“Yeah, this is what we plan on doing,” coach Doc Rivers said. “We’re just getting better at it. We came in this season saying what we wanted to do. We wanted to establish two different groups. We wanted to have a big lineup where we could have movement still and then we wanted to have a small lineup where we could have more spacing, so that’s the good part about this.“We’ve already established the big lineup, now we’ve established that we can play both ways. Even though we were doing it, we hadn’t done it well.”Griffin has missed all this time because of a quad injury and because he now has a fractured right hand sustained Jan. 23 when he punched team equipment staffer Matias Testi in Toronto. The team is still awaiting word from the league on his punishment.Doc humbled What’s the old saying? The proof is in the pudding?Since Dec. 26, the day after the last game played by Blake Griffin before all of his troubles, the Clippers have averaged 108 points during the 18 games he’s missed. Prior to that, they averaged 102.1 points.Furthermore, the Clippers shot 45.6 percent with Griffin and are shooting 47.4 without him. They are getting 9.2 steals without Griffin, 7.3 with him. Also, the Clippers were committing 13.5 turnovers per game with Griffin, 11.9 since he’s been out.That’s not to mention the Clippers went 17-13 before Griffin went down and they had gone 15-3 since then before Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.center_img Rivers this week was named Western Conference Coach of the Month by the NBA. Not only did the Clippers go 11-3 in January, they of course did it without the services of leading scorer Griffin.Rivers is not one to jump for joy over such an accolade, and he gave credit to everyone but himself.“It doesn’t mean much,” Rivers said. “It means that our team is playing well. I was surprised I got it. I mean, I figured someone else had a better record or did something better. But it’s nice, obviously, whenever you get an award.“It usually means that your players are really, really playing well, your staff’s doing well.”Rivers said he found out about the award, which was announced Monday, when his phone started making noise that morning.“It’s funny, I get all these texts and I’m like, ‘Who in the heck’s texting me?’” he said. “And then I actually had to read them. And that even made it worse. But it’s nice when you ever get anything.”Coming upThe Clippers (32-16 before Wednesday) will hit the road for a four-game trip that begins Friday at Orlando. The Clippers will then play Sunday at Miami, Monday at Philadelphia and Feb. 10 at Boston. Then the All-Star break hits and the Clippers won’t play again until they host San Antonio on Feb. 18.last_img read more

Eight national federations complete course

first_imgShe said NF’s who would like to send a representative can contact her on 325-1411 or email aravusiro@pngoc.org.pg to register. The course program which is run around the world was held for the first time in the country and in the Pacific according to Course Director, Alurigo Ravusiro.Ravusiro said the MOSO course comes in six modules and what the participants completed was the fifth module with the sixth module on Events to be held in October this year.Participants, mostly executives of national sport federations in the country have taken the first four courses since starting in October 2015.“We are really happy with the program. OSEP started the program back in October 2015 and the participants have attended all the courses and this is the fifth of the six modules.“We have executives from swimming, netball, handball, softball, weightlifting, and powerlifting,” said Ravusiro.Ravusiro said participants are expected to learn from the course and write their strategic plans to manage their federations effectively.“These courses are competency based and whatever the participants plan, they can use with their own experiences to develop their respective federations,” said Ravusiro.Karo Rupa Ikupu, an Executive from Beach Volleyball said the course was very inspiring and informative.“The knowledge imparted to us by the facilitator has been very good.“We have learnt a lot of new things especially managing our federations and on marketing and are privileged to be in this program,” Ikupu said.Ravusiro said invitations were sent out to all Sporting National Federations in the country but only few turned up.She said she expects more people to attend the sixth module on Events in October.“We are extending invitations to all the NFS to attend the sixth module start in October.“NF’s are asked to send a suitable candidate to attend the program,” said Ravusiro.last_img read more

first_img…PNC’s panicEven without the benefit of all the fancy-schmancy psychological verbiage that’s thrown around so glibly nowadays, even five hundred years ago, they’d figured out that when you jump up and down carrying on about something you insist ain’t true, you’re just confessing that, in fact, it IS so!! “Methinks thou protest too much,” said the Bard!! So when the PNC issues an official but hysterical press release about a report in an online news portal that headlined: “PPP ‘likely’ to win next elections” is flawed, you know that they’re shell-shocked that an influential outsider has revealed that they’re electorally naked!! They protested too much!!It’s not that they don’t KNOW their days are numbered – counting down from March 2!; their own internal polls showed they’re in trouble. Why else do you think they’ve been making fools of themselves with the hare-brained contention that 33 isn’t the majority of 65?? So how do they respond to the reported assessment of their imminent ouster? Another giveaway!! They started out by defaming the messenger – insisting that he’s an “ASSET” of the lobbying firm the PPP has hired in Washington!! Now if you’ve seen any one of those spy movies, you’d know that declaring the fella to be an “ASSET” of the lobbying firm, is to say they’ve bought him and he’s their agent!!Now here it is, the writer lectures at the UN National War College – which declares that its “mission is to educate future leaders of the Armed Forces, Department of State, and other civilian agencies for high-level policy, command and staff responsibilities by conducting a senior-level course of study in national security strategy.“The curriculum emphasises the joint and interagency perspective. Reflecting this emphasis, 59 per cent of the student body is composed of equal representation from the land, air, and sea (including Marine and Coast Guard) services. The remaining 41 per cent are drawn from the Department of State and other federal departments and agencies, and international fellows from a number of foreign countries”. And the PNC’s insisting that this fella – with access to the movers and shakers in Washington – has been BOUGHT!!Your Eyewitness knows that the PNC knows when someone at this level puts out the kinda analysis he did – especially with its damning conclusion – it would’ve been vetted by folks way up the food chain. And this is what got the PNC so rattled. They’ve been going around telling their supporters that the US administration prefers them to be in charge of the oil economy – which, not so incidentally, was the assessment of the same analyst back in February!!But the PNC has just dug a deeper hole to bury the dead meat they’ve become like the AFC!!…the PNC’s bluffBut the PNC shouldn’t be worried about the analyst’s opinion on who’s gonna win the next elections. They should be worried that a top-level strategic military analyst has ripped apart their pretentions on being better qualified to take on Guyana’s security – one that encompasses Exxon’s massive investment in oil. Not to mention being next door to Venezuela – which is really the BIG enchilada!!What are these security challenges?? There’s Venezuela on the west and Suriname on the east claiming huge chunks of our territory. Granger boasts of getting the army back to “battle strength” – including the revived Peoples Militia. “Guns not butter” he implicitly tells sugar worker folks. But for what?? The War College expert says even Suriname could take us on!! He bemoaned the PNC inability to take on the syndications, money laundering, narcotics production and trafficking, human smuggling and trafficking, (esp Cubans and Haitians); Chinese penetration etc.Imagine if the fella knew the PNC would then completely degut our Foreign Service!! How can the US trust them??…the end resultThe analyst warns, “While Guyana has already been prejudiced…by a lack of capability to respond to its existing internal and external security challenges, without the ability to protect its oil…development will ultimately be unsustainable”.last_img read more

AFC held by Fosa Juniors in Confed Cup tie

first_imgSave for Mainge’s third minute goal, AFC Leopards had a disastrous first half and it was evidenced in coach Matano making a double substitution after 40 minutes. Soon after conceding the equalizer, Ingwe were simply lost and let the visitors run over them.Mainge who had been handed a start in the absence of injured regular Dennis Sikhayi broke the deadlock after three minutes though it came with some touch of fortune.From almost 40 metres out, the Kakamega High School alumni sighted Prince Arkoh’s run into the box and lifted the ball into his direction, but the Ghanaian’s effort at going for the header wasn’t successful as the ball was a few centimeters off his head.However, his jump ahead of keeper Tabibo Balvano confused the shot stopper and the ball ended inside the net.AFC Leopards youngster Yussuf Mainge celebrates his goal against Fosa Juniors during a CAF Confederations Cup tie at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluAFC had earlier threatened with the under-performing Uche having a shot from inside the box turned behind for a corner in the second minute.But the patient Fosa Juniors were not downtrodden despite going down early and they kept their shape, building up play with the patience of a hunting lion.They came close in the 11th minute when Thedin Ramanjary glanced in a header unmarked inside the box, but the ball went inches wide.As if AFC didn’t read the red signs, they were punished for their mistakes in the 15th minute when Mbolasoa equalized.Duncan Otieno attempted to play the ball from the back but was dispossessed, The Fosa right back breaking into the box and wading off a late challenge from Isaac Oduro before beating Andika.After conceding the goal, AFC seemed lost inside their own little world. They became rushed in their approach with Aziz Okaka and Henry Uche losing ball after ball in attack.Mbolasoa should have made it 2-1 for the visitors in the 37th minute when he broke off into the area from another lost AFC ball lifting the ball over the advancing Andika, but luckily, the second assistant referee waved offside.Two minutes later, the visitors had another brilliant opportunity when Jean Yves broke into the box from a through ball, one on one with Andika, but he could not beat the keeper as his effort at chipping the ball over went awry.AFC Leopards defender Duncan Otieno vies for the ball with with Fosa Junior’s Pierre Michael Tiavina during a CAF Confederations Cup tie at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluReading the signs that his team would be run over by the organized and structured Fosa, Matano made two changes at a go with five minutes left before half time, bringing off the hugely underperforming Uche and Okaka for Collins Okoth and Baker Lukooya.With the introduction of the two, Whyvonne Isuza dropped to play as a number 10 with Gattuso partnering Victor Majid in midfield while Lukooya went wide.Three minutes to half time left back Oduro came close with a freekick from the edge of the box which was turned behind for a corner by keeper Balvano.The home side started the second half well and seven minutes in, Lukooya had a chance at the far post after being picked out by a well floated cross from an Otieno cross, but he failed to give it a heacy touch, the keeper collecting with ease.Matano threw in his final card with 13 minutes played in the second half, bringing in Ezekiel Odera for Whyvonne Isuza as he went back to the traditional 4-4-2 with clear intent of packing the front for a goal.On the hour mark Lukooya was picked out with another pinpoint pass from Otieno, but his first touch failed him after beating the offside trap, the ball rolling to the keeper who collected.In the 68th minute, Odera had another opportunity for AFC with a rasping shot from the edge of the box after being teed up by Vincent Oburu but the keeper made a super finger tip save to turn the ball behind for a corner.With 15 minutes left on the clock, Fosa had a rare second half chance when Dieudonne Henry’s freekick from the right fell on Nambinna Ralairimanana at the far post who tapped the ball across the face of goal but Pierre Michael Tavina failed to direct it into goal a yard out.AFC piled the pressure, but couldn’t get the winner and now have a mountain to climb in the second leg.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000AFC Leopards defender Robinson Kamura goes for a header with Fosa Junior’s Bakary Mario during a Confederations Cup tie at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017.

American activist’s body found, says FBI

first_imgWASHINGTON – An American who was among four Christian activists kidnapped last year in Iraq has been killed, a State Department spokesman said Friday. The FBI verified that a body found in Iraq on Friday morning was that of Tom Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, Va., spokesman Noel Clay said. He said he had no information on the other three hostages. Clay said additional forensics will be done in the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is investigating, he said. Fox’s family has been notified, Clay said, and “our heartfelt condolences go out to them.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “The State Department continues to call for the unconditional release of all other hostages” in Iraq, the spokesman said. Fox was the one American among four Christian Peacemaker activists kidnapped last year in Iraq. On Tuesday, Al-Jazeera television aired footage of the three other activists purportedly appealing to their governments to secure their release. The hostages seen in the brief video dated Feb. 28 were Canadians James Loney, 41, and Harmeet Singh Sooden, 32; and Briton Norman Kember, 74. Allan Slater, a Canadian member of Christian Peacemaker Teams, said at the time that he was disturbed not to see Fox. “We certainly are hopeful when we see three of our friends alive, but also it’s very distressing that we didn’t see Tom Fox, and I wouldn’t want to hide that because I’m sure it’s very distressful for Tom’s family and friends as well,” Slater told The Canadian Press from Baghdad. The previously unknown Swords of Righteousness Brigades claimed responsibility for kidnapping the four workers, who disappeared Nov. 26. The four had not been heard from since a videotape aired by Al-Jazeera on Jan. 28, dated from a week before. A statement reportedly accompanying that tape said the hostages would be killed unless all Iraqi prisoners were released from U.S. and Iraqi prisons. No deadline was set. Iraqi and Western security officials repeatedly warned the activists before their abduction that they were taking a grave risk by moving around Baghdad without bodyguards. Christian Peacemaker Teams had been working in Iraq since October 2002, investigating allegations that U.S. and Iraqi forces abused Iraqi detainees. Its teams host human rights conferences in conflict zones, promoting peaceful solutions. In the three years since the U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq, insurgents have kidnapped at least 250 foreigners and killed at least 40 of them. In one of the most high-profile cases, Jill Carroll, a freelance writer for The Christian Science Monitor, was kidnapped Jan. 7 in Baghdad. Three videotapes of Carroll delivered by her kidnappers to Arab satellite television stations identified the group holding her as the Revenge Brigades. Carroll’s kidnappers have publicly demanded the release of all female detainees in Iraq. The Monitor launched a campaign on Iraqi television stations Wednesday asking Iraqis, in Arabic, to “Please help with the release of journalist Jill Carroll.” The list of those kidnapped and killed in Iraq includes Margaret Hassan, the director of CARE international in Iraq and a citizen of Britain, Ireland and Iraq; Ronald Schulz, an industrial electrician from Anchorage, Alaska; Nicholas Berg, a businessman from West Chester, Pa.; Jack Hensley, a civil engineer from Marietta, Ga.; and Eugene “Jack” Armstrong, formerly of Hillsdale, Mich.

first_imgA young woman ho suffered a burn injury when a hot water bottle in her bed split open has been awarded €65,000 damages.Ann Marie McGee (25), Meenlaragh, Letterkenny, was aged 15 when the incident occurred 10 years ago in her home.She told the High Court yesterday she still cannot wear high heels, had to give up playing football and could not sit her mock Junior Cert exams immediately after the incident. “It was very painful. I had to keep my foot in a basin of cold water all night,” she said.She said she had to go to hospital and the skin on her left foot had bubbled up.She later developed septicaemia on the foot and could not wear socks or shoes for two months after the incident.Ms McGee said she has been left with a permanent scar and is conscious of that.“ I still can’t wear heels. The rim of the shoe catches on the burn,” she said.When the case was called yesterday before Ms Justice Mary Irvine, Richard Lyons SC, for Ms McGee, said she had settled her case against Siopa Niall Ruaidh Teoranta trading as Mace Supermarket, Gortahork, Letterkenny, Co Donegal, and the matter before the court was against wholesale distributor Peter McCallig, trading as McCallig Brothers, Mount Street, Claremorris, Co Mayo, for assessment of damages only.Counsel said proceedings against the importer and supplier of the hot water bottle could be struck out.It was claimed Ms McGee’s mother bought the hot water bottle in December 2001.On February 4th, 2002, Ms McGee placed the hot water bottle in her bed.She claimed she got into bed and placed her left foot beneath the bottle, which spilt, and the contents poured on to her foot.It was claimed the incident occurred as a result of negligence and breach of duty of the defendants, but they denied those claims.Ms Justice Irvine, who examined the scar on Ms McGee’s foot in her private chambers, said the young woman had suffered excruciating pain when the hot water bottle split open.DONEGAL WOMAN INJURED BY HOT WATER BOTTLE AWARDED €65,000 was last modified: May 23rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ann Marie McGeeHIGH COURThot water bottlelast_img read more

first_imgTwo young men who gagged and bound a girl before robbing her have escaped a lengthy jail sentence after being given a taste of prison.Lee McLaughlin was given a taste of prison. PIc by Northwest Newspix.Lee McLaughlin, and James Leedham, were part of a three man gang who terrorised two young women in a house robbery in Carndonagh. The men had pleaded guilty at Letterkenny Circuit Court to false imprisonment and aggravated burglary when they appeared on Monday last.An angry Judge John O’Hagan deferred sentence until yesterday but had sent both men to Castlerea Prison to reflect on what they had done.The court heard gang forced their way into the house at The Mullins in Carndonagh in broad daylight on September 29th, 2013.The men had their faces hidden and had also brought an imitation firearm to the house.Two young women in the house were watching television at around 1.45pm in the afternoon when the gang struck.One of the women Shannon Doherty managed to escape through a window but another woman, Danielle Doherty, who was 20, was held captive by the raiders.McLaughlin, 20, of Allendale Park, Carndonagh, tied Ms Doherty’s hands with a cable-tie and put duct tape on her mouth to stop her from screaming.James Leedham got suspended jail sentence. Pic by Northwest Newspix.The gang tried to put her into a wardrobe but she refused to go into it.They eventually stole 36 packets of cigarettes, 6 packets of loose tobacco and €58 in cash which they put into a rucksack which they had brought with them.However the men were chased by some neighbours who had ben alerted to the robbery by Ms Doherty who had escaped earlier.They managed to flee through fields but were eventually apprehended by Gardai.The court heard the gang had planned the robbery after watching a video the previous night.Victim Danielle Doherty said she was still suffering from the attack and had to lock all the doors in her house if she was home alone.Leedham, 18, of Station Road, Buncrana, revealed he had been turned down for an application joining the army and was upset.McLaughlin had suffered a vert tough childhood and his father abused him and his siblings including occasions when he would stub cigarettes out on them.Judge O’Hagan said if he had sentenced the men last Monday, they would have been looking at a lengthy jail term.“The deviousness which they did it with was quite frightening – the taping of the mouth, using cable ties, attempting to put her in the wardrobe – it’s like something you would see in the movies.“I really do hope the four days they have had in Castlerea was a time of reflection and that they should not wish to be there again,” he said.He sentenced both men to three years imprisonment but suspended the sentences for three years and ordered them to be of good behaviour.MEN ESCAPE JAIL SENTENCE AFTER GETTING TASTE OF PRISON FOR ATTACK ON YOUNG WOMAN was last modified: February 7th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aggravated burglaryFalse ImprisonmentJames NeedhamLee McLaughlinletterkennylast_img read more

The 4 Most Common Geocache Hiding Mistakes

first_imgFollow these four tips and you’ll avoid many of the common hurdles geocache hiders face. And while this is the end of this blog post, it’s not the end of what you need to know. Check out the Hiding Overview before placing a geocache and avoid these pitfalls and create smiles like the one below!This is the “OMG” look we’re aiming for.Share with your Friends:More Make your geocache smile… 4 things to avoid when hiding a geocache(Cough Cough) Hello class, and welcome to a quick installment of the 4 most Common Geocache Hiding Mistakes. Why read on? It’s like knowing the four common routes where there’s a bridge out, or heavy road construction, or a locust migration. These are all mistakes a new hider doesn’t have to make. Let’s learn together and if at any point you’d like to know more, check out the Hiding Overview for all you need to know.Here are the four guidelines that potential cache owners most commonly overlook:1) Choose an Appropriate LocationThink like a non-geocacher and ask yourself, “Self, am I placing this geocache somewhere where it could be mistaken for something dangerous?” Also ask yourself if geocache hunting behavior (i.e. looking through bushes) might draw attention in sensitive areas, like schools. And make sure you know whether or not geocaches are allowed in that location. Some areas require a permit, are private property, or don’t allow geocaching altogether. Ask a land manager or owner for permission when needed.2) Consider Proximity to Other GeocachesGeocaches must be at least 1/10 mile or 528 feet (161 meters) apart. Check the area for other geocaches before settling on a spot. There’s a great new planning map tool to help you, with red circles showing places that are already blocked by another geocache. It won’t tell you about secret locations, but it will catch a lot of the locations that have already been taken.3) Avoid Commercialization/AgendasGeocaches cannot be commercial or used to publicize an agenda. Sometimes people get tripped up by the commercial guideline unintentionally. There are lots of platforms that you can use to get the word out about your important cause or a business that you really (really) like, but geocaches are not an appropriate platform for that.4) Don’t Damage PropertyTelephone poles and stop signs seem like they are public property because they are so familiar, but they are the property of the city or utility company. Don’t damage things in the environment. Screwing or drilling into a live tree creates an pathway for insects and disease. Never bury a geocache, even partway. If you have to make a hole in the ground, it’s not OK.

Sindhu stuns world No. 2 Wang of China to ensure second medal at World Championships

first_imgP.V. Sindhu in action against world No. 2 Wang Shixian of China at the Badminton World Championship in Copenhagen on FridayPusarla Venkata Sindhu certainly knows how to step up on the big stage. On Friday, she knocked out world No.2 and All England Champion Wang Shixian of China 19-21, 21-19, 21-15 to storm into the semi-finals of the BWF World Championships in Copenhagen, bagging a second successive medal from the mega event.In the previous edition in Guangzhou, Sindhu had won a bronze – a historic first for any woman Indian shuttler in the singles event. Now, she has become the only Indian to win two World Championships medals. Prakash Padukone is the other Indian to win a singles medal at the World Championships, interestingly it came in Copenhagen in 1983.In the semi-final, Sindhu will face Spain’s Carolina Marin, the new sensation in the sport. Marin got the better of Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei 19-21, 21-19, 21-11. Sindhu has beaten Marin once but lost to her in the Australian Open in June. “It is a great feeling. My effort now will be to change the colour of my medal,” an ecstatic Sindhu told Mail Moday from Copenhagen.”It was a tense and crucial match. I’m happy that I was able to hold my nerve. I’ve often played long and close matches against her, so I was prepared for it. I was trailing 16-12 in the second game and I recovered well. It’d not have been possible without the motivation of my coach.” Saina, on the other hand, faltered in the quarter-finals for a fifth time in her career. She went down to top seed and world No.1 Li Xuerui 15-21, 15-21.advertisementSindhu showed remarkable resilience and stamina as she rallied to win the marathon hour-and-25-minute match. In the decider, the lanky Hyderabadi pulled away from 15-15 to win six points in a row. She had beaten the Chinese at the same stage in the previous edition too. Sindhu improved 4-2 against Wang in the head-tohead record. In the pre-quarterfinals, too, Sindhu had fought back from a game down against a higher-ranked, seeded sixth Korean Bae Yeon Ju.last_img read more

Max Verstappen: ‘If you don’t believe you can do it, it’s better to stay home’

first_imgLast season every side of Verstappen was on display. The opening six races were peppered with small but costly mistakes. He rebuffed criticism with pugnacious refusals to change his driving style, offered to headbutt anyone who asked about it and was vocal in his frustration with his team’s Renault engine. But in the second half he let his driving do the talking, taking seven podiums from nine races and a win in Mexico. Yet he could not quite throw off the “Mad Max” tag, after his on-track tangle with Esteban Ocon in Brazil ended with him confronting and shoving the Frenchman after the race.What has emerged it seems is a driver applying greater, more rigorous, self-analysis. It would be trite to simply say Verstappen has grown up but nothing builds character quite like experience, especially in racing.

Never one to lack faith in his own abilities Max Verstappen is, as ever, brimming with confidence before his fifth season in Formula One. Such is his prodigious talent and indeed his assurance in it, the popular conception is that it was ever thus. Yet, on the eve of the Australian Grand Prix, Verstappen unusually admits that even he once harboured shades of doubt. They are, of course, now long since dismissed, summarily dealt with in the forge that has made his personality so strong, a process he concedes was tough as a child but from which has emerged a world championship contender.Verstappen, now 21, started karting aged four, encouraged by his father Jos who raced in F1 in the 1990s and early 2000s. In 2015, at 17, Verstappen became the youngest driver to compete in a grand prix, a year later he was the youngest to win a race, in Spain for Red Bull, the team for whom he still drives. He has been impossible to ignore, his talent braced by a self-belief of positively belligerent conviction. He is outspoken, entertaining and F1 must hope he is the future. It is the past that has defined why he believes he will be. Max Verstappen in winter testing at the Circuit de Catalunya. Photograph: Dan Istitene/Getty Images … we have a small favour to ask.

Frenchman Pierre Gasly has been promoted from Toro Rosso to replace Ricciardo, with British-Thai driver Alex Albon taking his place.  Charles Leclerc moves from Sauber to partner Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari, trading places with Kimi Räikkönen (pictured), who will race for a rebranded Alfa Romeo team. Force India are now known as Racing Point, with Lance Stroll joining them from Williams.  The British constructor welcomes two new drivers –home hopeful and Formula 2 world champion George Russell and Robert Kubica, who makes his F1 return eight years after suffering life-threatening injuries in a rallying accident. Share via Email interviews Formula Onecenter_img Thank you for your feedback. This is the first season in Red Bull’s partnership with the engine manufacturer Honda. The team look a little behind Ferrari and Mercedes on pace and are braced to take some hits on engine reliability as Honda push hard to improve performance. A key test for Verstappen is how he will react if Honda fail more often than the team have bargained for.However, with Daniel Ricciardo departing for Renault to be replaced by Pierre Gasly, Verstappen is now Red Bull’s lead driver. The team principal, Christian Horner, is adamant the Dutchman is up to the task, praising how he has evolved and insisting he now has “the tools to take the fight to Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel”. Since you’re here… Twitter Quick guide F1 2019: Teams and drivers Red Bull Topics Interestingly, Verstappen’s assessment of those opening six races reflects Hamilton’s oft‑repeated commitment to taking the positives from every experience. “My dad always told me: ‘Even when you think you are not going fast enough you are still by far quick enough,’” he says. “I felt that by driving a little slower I became better after those six races. Every single race I learn. Whether a win, or a podium or retire, you always learn.”Verstappen knows he needs the machinery beneath him to be in the title race and this season Red Bull and Honda probably do not have it. Yet he is in no doubt he could fight Hamilton or Vettel if he had the car. “It would be stupid not to think like that,” he says. “It would be better to stay home if you don’t believe you can do it. Of course it sounds arrogant to think like that but it would be stupid not to.”His detractors have cited arrogance as a flaw in the past but it is really the necessary self-belief shared by the greats. It reflects the promise on which he is determined to deliver having held fast to lessons learned when his childhood contemporaries were having a kickabout. “You have to be hard on yourself. No lying to yourself. Normally racing drivers have a lot of excuses.” Formula One 2019 Show Facebook Share on WhatsApp “You have to be honest with yourself, that is most important,” he says. “I learned it from my dad. He was always very hard on me but in a fair way. When I was seven or eight I was already taking it seriously. When other competitors were playing football in the paddock, I was working with my dad to try and get the best out of it. At the time I thought: ‘Should I really be like this? Should it be the way I am working?’ But I am really happy we did that.”There is no sense of regret, nor has it prevented him from growing into a young man with a natural ebullience and now the Verstappen package seems more rounded, more complete and more threatening than ever to his rivals. “You need to be able to talk to yourself about what you can do better or what went wrong. To really be able to analyse everything really well. I have learned how to deal with those things.“There are always things which can be improved. Sometimes it is good to make mistakes, it shouldn’t always be great and amazing, you need a few setbacks to become better.” Hide Pinterest Share on Messenger Reuse this content I felt by driving a little slower I became better after those six races.

Sharp winds scuttle efforts to retrieve bodies

first_imgPithoragarh: Indian Air Force helicopters on Wednesday undertook three sorties to retrieve bodies of five mountaineers lying near the Nanda Devi East Peak in Uttarakhand but high-speed sharp winds hampered their efforts.Considering the tough terrain, the operation of retrieving the bodies might extend beyond a week, Pithoragarh District Magistrate V K Jogdande said. He said three sorties were undertaken from Pithoragarh to retrieve the bodies but the helicopters could not hover over and get down at the spot where five bodies were found. Also Read – Dussehra with a ‘green’ twistHigh-speed sharp winds at the peak did not let the IAF helicopters with ITBP mountaineers on board get down, he said. “Besides the aerial operation, the administration will also try to reach the spot by the land route tomorrow to retrieve the bodies,” he said. We are being joined by 35 State Disaster Response Force men tonight who will be divided into two groups. One will be sent to the spot by land route while the other will try to reach the spot by air,” the DM said. Also Read – India receives its first Rafale fighter jet from France”Due to continuous snowfall in the region the bodies might be covered by snow which would further complicate the challenge for the rescue team,” he said. IAF helicopters had on Monday spotted the bodies of five of the eight mountaineers who went missing recently on way to the Nanda Devi East peak. The bodies had been sighted near an unscaled peak adjoining the Nanda Devi East peak during a search by IAF helicopters. The bodies were of mountaineers belonging to the eight-member team comprising climbers from the UK, US and Australia that went missing en route to the Nanda Devi East peak. Apparently, the mountaineers perished in an avalanche while ascending an unscaled peak near the Nanda Devi East peak after they failed to scale the latter, the DM had said. The bodies were sighted after an air search was conducted over the peak on the basis of clues provided by four climbers from the UK rescued during a sortie undertaken on Sunday. The missing mountaineers included seven from the UK, US and Australia besides one liaison officer from Delhi’s Indian Mountaineering Foundation. They had left Munsiyari on May 13 to scale the peak but did not return to the base camp on the appointed date of May 25. Led by well known British mountaineer Martin Moran, the team comprised John McLaren, Richard Payne, Rupert Havel (all from the UK), Ruth Macrain (Australia), Anthony Sudekum (US), Rachel Bimmel (US) and a liaison officer from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation Chetan Pandey.

New copyright licence for University

Brock has signed the Access Copyright licence, which means changes to how printed material is copied and distributed on campus.Brock University is one of the latest to sign the much-contested Access Copyright licence developed by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.“A review of Brock’s copying practices and resources suggested that the licence was necessary to give the university time to develop the structures, processes and supports needed to operate effectively without a licence in the future,” Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President Academic, said in a university-wide statement.“In the interim, the license will protect faculty and students from copyright infringement claims,” he said.Professors and students at universities that sign onto the licence are able to reproduce works that are in Access Copyright’s repertoire subject to certain limits.Instructors can copy and distribute:· * up to 20 percent of a work· * an entire newspaper or journal article· * an entire book chapter, as long as it is not more than 20 percent of the book· * a single short story, play, poem, or essay from a larger work· * an entire entry from a reference work such as an encyclopedia· * an entire reproduction of an artistic work such as a drawing or painting from a larger work; and· * an entire newspaper or journal page.All Canadian universities that have signed the licence are charged a flat rate per full-time student for this licence, usually passed down to students in mandatory fees.What has proved to be unpopular with many institutions is a jump in this fee to $26 per student in 2011, up from $3.38 – plus an additional 10 cents per page for course packs – per student in 2010.Also, there are some stipulations that prohibit instructors and students from keeping copies of journal articles in personal libraries, computers or e-mail accounts. The licence also defines copying as providing Internet links to works.Universities that have decided not to sign the voluntary licence include University of British Columbia, University of Saskatchewan, Carlton University, York University, Queen’s University and the University of New Brunswick.Brock joins the University of Toronto, University of Western Ontario, the University of Ottawa, and McMaster University, among others, in signing the licence.“Although the licence has some flaws, it does offer Brock some real benefits, including the right to share materials with students in a variety of ways,” said Chabriol Colebatch, Brock University’s copyright co-ordinator and legal adviser.She says that, assuming the materials to be copied fall within the scope of the licence, “instructors will now be able to scan book chapters and post them on Isaak/Sakai.“They’ll also be able to post journal articles from journals for which we don’t have a licence,” she said. “And they continue to have the right to create print course packs, and print reserves and classroom handouts.”Access Copyright is a not-for-profit group set up to collect revenues from licenced Canadian universities, businesses, libraries and other institutions for the photocopying of print works. The organization distributes these revenues to publishers, authors, and other rights holders. read more

Ohio State unleashed a week’s worth of frustration on Toledo, with the Rockets playing the role of punching bag in the Buckeyes’38-0 victory Saturday at Cleveland Browns Stadium.A week after falling to No. 3 USC at home, 18-15, the Buckeyes shut down Toledo’s spread attack, which had averaged 42.5 points per game before facing OSU.“Our defense came out of the box,” Buckeye coach Jim Tressel said. “When you swarm on defense like we do, it gives your offense a few more opportunities, and we struck a couple plays that took command of the ballgame.”The Buckeyes got off to a quick start.On OSU’s third play from scrimmage, quarterback Terrelle Pryor launched a strike downfield to a wide-open Dane Sanzenbacher for a 76-yard score.“It felt like it was in the air forever,” Sanzenbacher said. “We got lucky that it opened up like that, easy pitch and catch.”Sanzenbacher found open seams throughout the day, totaling 126 yards on five catches, two resulting in touchdowns. The junior receiver enjoyed excelling against his hometown team.Pryor finished with a career-high 262 passing yards, in addition to 110 yards on the ground on 12 carries. He kept Toledo’s defense off-balance all afternoon with his dual-threat approach.“I love getting the ball to my receivers,” the sophomore quarterback said. “Believe me, if I can run, I’m going to take off and run and get the ten yards or whatever. That’s a choice of mine. I could take off and get ten yards every time, but I love getting the ball into my receivers hands, and maybe they can break it for 70, 80 yards.”The Rockets, meanwhile, struggled to sustain drives against a flocking OSU defense.“We got down 21-0 early and had to throw the football a little more than we would have liked,” Toledo coach Tim Beckman said. “I thought at times we were able to run the ball, but we got into so many situations that we couldn’t continually run the football.”Toledo quarterback Aaron Opelt, who racked up 742 passing yards and seven touchdowns in his first two games of the season, managed just 197 without a score in the loss. The Buckeyes held the Rockets to just 210 total yards, a far cry from Toledo’s previous average of 559 yards per game.The Buckeyes’ second series lasted 12 plays and covered 68 yards. Pryor found Sanzenbacher for another touchdown, this time slinging an 18-yard pass into tight coverage for the score. Sanzenbacher made a one-handed stretch to snag the throw.“That ball was thrown in a hurry and right at the break,” Tressel said. “Dane’s got good hands. He’s a steady guy. Nothing bothers him inside, even when there’s a lot of bodies flying around.”Each of Toledo’s first ten drives ended with a punt. The Rockets fumbled away their only glance at the end zone late in the third quarter.On its only drive lasting more than seven plays, Toledo moved the ball deep inside Buckeye territory. Opelt connected with receiver Eric Page in stride near the end zone, but he lost control of the ball when unsuccessfully spinning away from a Kurt Coleman tackle.Linebacker Ross Homan recovered the fumble for the Buckeyes, who regained possession and maintained the shutout.The victory cleanses some of the rotten taste left in the players’ mouths after losing to Southern Cal. Following a week of criticism and scrutiny, the team is ready to move forward onto Big Ten play.“Criticism doesn’t bother us,” Pryor said. “I know what I’m capable of. I know what the offensive line is capable of. We all know what each other is capable of. It comes with the territory, you just have to do your job.”The dominating performance against Toledo helped prepare Ohio State for the rigor of conference play, Sanzenbacher said.“We have to be a lot more focused,” he said. “We know that every team has us marked down on their calendars and is going to play us tough.” read more

An Audi Q7, was allegedly chasing a Porsche, when it span out of control A speeding motorist has destroyed a string of supercars worth more than £500,000 in a London street after ploughing into them in scenes compared to action films The Fast and the Furious.An Audi Q7, was allegedly chasing a Porsche, when it span out of control in Moore Street, Chelsea, smashing into a row of parked cars before flipping over.One woman revealed that three of her vehicles had all been damaged; a McLaren, a Porsche and a Bentley.Resident Summer Haider rushed out of her house. She told MailOnline: “I really thought there had been some sort of explosion, like a helicopter coming down.“The driver got out. There was blood coming from his head.”Another said it was a “miracle” no one was killed.“It was very lucky no pedestrians were around,” she said. “If any other vehicle had been coming down the street they would have been history.”The woman said the Audi driver emerged from his vehicle “dazed and in shock” and covered in blood with some hair missing.

It was mayhem,” she told MailOnline.Viola Pemberton-Pigot, whose black railings were destroyed in the crash, added: “Luckily I was behind curtains and did not see it, but I certainly heard the crash. It was an terrible noise.“All the neighbours came out. We are all just grateful that no one was hurt. It could have been so much worse.”A police spokesman said: “Police were called to Moore Street at 0031hrs on Monday August 5 following a collision between a car and number of parked cars. “A male driver and passenger from the car involved were taken to hospital for the treatment of head injuries. “Their condition is not believed to be life threatening. The driver however continue to receive treatment for serious head injuries. All of the parked cars were empty at the time of the collision. No arrests have been made. Enquiries into the full circumstances continue.” An Audi Q7, was allegedly chasing a Porsche, when it span out of control read more

Parc national des Calanques son périmètre et sa charte validés

first_imgParc national des Calanques : son périmètre et sa charte validésVendredi, lors de l’assemblée générale du groupement d’intérêt public (GIP) portant le projet, le périmètre et la charte du parc national des Calanques ont été adoptés. D’ici à la fin de l’année, le premier parc périurbain européen devrait enfin être créé.Le périmètre du “coeur marin” du parc, s’étendant sur près de 42.000 hectares, ainsi que celui du “coeur terrestre”, soit 16.000 hectares environ, ont été adoptés avec 79% des voix. La charte a quant à elle été votée avec une large majorité de 82%.À lire aussiBiodiversité, Game of Thrones et Mars, les 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 8 maiComme le rapporte Le Parisien, le périmètre du “cœur marin” n’inclut finalement pas la rade sud ni l’archipel du Frioul. Un projet qui avait fait l’objet de débats houleux, plaisanciers et pêcheurs s’y opposant fermement. Cette nouvelle version de l’avant-projet du parc des Calanques, qui va désormais être soumise à deux consultations nationales, prévoit la création de zones de non-prélèvement s’étendant sur 4.500 hectares, soit 11 % du cœur du parc marin. A l’issue des consultations, une troisième version du projet sera proposée, vers le mois d’avril. Une enquête publique sera ensuite lancée au cours de l’été, a indiqué Guy Teissier, le président du GIP. Une fois finalisé, le projet sera présenté devant le Conseil d’Etat par le ministère de l’Environnement, dernière étape avant que le parc ne puisse enfin voir le jour. Une création prévue avant la fin de l’année. Visant à préserver la biodiversité, la quiétude des lieux et le patrimoine culturel des Calanques, le site deviendra alors le troisième parc périurbain du monde après ceux du Cap, en Afrique du Sud, et de Sydney en Australie.

Trump taps Israel envoy eyes moving embassy to Jerusalem

first_imgWASHINGTON — Donald Trump’s selection of a hard-line pro-Israel advocate as his U.S. ambassador to the Jewish state could signal the end of decades of American support for the establishment of an independent Palestine.Body justified: The president-elect’s transition team already has asked the State Department to assess how to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, according to one official, underscoring Trump’s commitment to back Israel in ways no American leader has before.Trump isn’t the first incoming president to promise to move the embassy from Tel Aviv. But his team’s State Department request and comments from aides and advisers suggest he will be the first to charge into what promises to be a diplomatic and political minefield.The ambassador-designate, David Friedman, has long ties to Israel’s settler movement and has supported stances on the far-right of Israel’s political spectrum, well beyond those of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Orthodox Jewish lawyer from New York has suggested Trump would support Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank, effectively eliminating the possibility of a Palestinian state. He has served as president of American Friends of Bet El Institutions, which supports a settlement.“This is about as sharp a break with past policy as I’ve seen in the last 25 years,” said Aaron David Miller, a Mideast adviser under five American presidents of both parties.last_img read more

Four journalists newspaper are Times Person of the Year

first_imgTime magazine named four journalists and a newspaper on Tuesday as its 2018 Person of the Year for what it said was standing up for the truth in the face of persecution and violence.The group, which Time called “the guardians,” consists of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi; the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were shot to death at the newspaper’s offices in June; Philippine journalist Maria Ressa, who has been arrested; and Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who have been detained in Myanmar for nearly a year.“They are representative of a broader fight by countless others around the world — as of Dec. 10, at least 52 journalists have been murdered in 2018 — who risk all to tell the story of our time,” Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal wrote in an essay.Time selected them “for taking great risks in pursuit of greater truths, for the imperfect but essential quest for facts that are central to civil discourse, for speaking up and speaking out.”Khashoggi was killed two months ago when The Washington Post columnist, who had lived in the U.S., visited Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Turkey for paperwork so he could get married. He had been critical of the Saudi regime.last_img read more

A wrench and a spark shut down TAPS for nine hours

first_imgThe April 20, 2016 fire took place at Pump Station 5, near Coldfoot. Photo courtesy of Alyeska Pipeline Service Co.A worker with a hand-wrench sparked the fire last month that shut down the trans-Alaska pipeline for nine hours.Download AudioThe fire, on April 20, forced the evacuation of more than 50 people working at a remote pump station near Coldfoot, at the edge of the Brooks Range.Alyeska Pipeline Service Co., which operates the pipeline, is investigating the cause of the fire. Spokeswoman Michelle Egan said the technician was working at the top of an oil storage tank with an adjustable wrench, removing nuts from a panel in preparation for an inspection planned later that week. His wrench, she said, simply slipped.“That hand-tool slipped and struck a hard object, and that likely caused a spark,” Egan said. “Then he saw flames, about three inches of flames around the outside of the panel that he was working on.”The storage tank has vents that allow crude oil vapors to escape, and the spark likely ignited those, she said.The company has strict regulations for most work around tanks, especially with power tools. But it wasn’t clear that work with a hand-tool could cause a fire.“Clearly we did not anticipate that with this kind of work that he was doing, that vapors would be present and this could occur,” Egan said.The company is reexamining its regulations.By the time the technician had climbed down from the tank to retrieve a fire extinguisher, the fire was too large for him to control by himself, Egan said. The full pipeline was shut down within minutes.An on-site fire crew initially held off to see if the fire would go out by itself. When the crew did finally go in, just after midnight, the fire was extinguished within minutes.The pipeline itself was restarted before the fire was put out. Egan said by that point, operators were confident the pump station was isolated from the full pipeline.Alyeska is continuing its investigation. The full results expected within the next few weeks but will not be released publicly.last_img read more

Air Force Says It Failed To Report Several Dozen Criminal Histories To

first_imgPhoto of Holcombe Family | Go Fund page on USA TodayThe Holcombe family, in a family photo. They lost eight family members in the Sutherland Springs church shooting on Sunday Nov. 5th, 2017. One of those relatives was a pregnant woman, which raises the count to 9 with the unborn child.The Air Force said Tuesday that in addition to failing to alert the FBI to the criminal history of the former airman who massacred 26 people at a Texas church on Nov. 5, it has discovered “several dozen” other such reporting omissions.This was the most specific acknowledgement by the Air Force that its failure to report Devin P. Kelley’s criminal history was part of a pattern of reporting lapses.The several dozen cases that were not reported have since been presented to the FBI to update its database, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said. She had no information on the time period covered by those cases. The Air Force Inspector General is reviewing compliance with reporting requirements in 60,000 cases involving serious offenses dating to 2002.In a written statement on progress in its investigation, the Air Force blamed gaps in “training and compliance measures” for the lapse involving Kelley, who had been convicted of assaulting his then-wife and stepson in 2012. The fingerprint card and the report on the outcome of his court martial were not submitted to the FBI by Air Force personnel at Kelley’s base in New Mexico. If reported, this information should have stopped him from buying weapons.Kelley was sentenced to 12 months in confinement and given a bad conduct discharge. He left the Air Force in 2014.The Air Force inspector general is undertaking an in-depth review of the service’s compliance with long-standing requirements to report certain criminal history information to the FBI for inclusion in databases used to conduct background checks of gun buyers. It is part of a broader Pentagon-wide review of compliance with these requirements.Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson has previously acknowledged that Kelley’s criminal history should have been reported to the FBI but was not.In its statement Tuesday, the Air Force said its review found that the reporting failure in the Kelley case was by Office of Special Investigation officials and Air Force security force personnel at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.“The review also found the error in the Kelley case was not an isolated incident and similar reporting lapses occurred at other locations,” it said. “Although policies and procedures requiring reporting were in place, training and compliance measures were lacking.”In a related development, a family that lost eight relatives in the church killings filed an administrative claim with the Air Force alleging that the Air Force’s failure to report Kelley’s criminal history contributed to the massacre.Joe Holcombe and his wife Claryce filed the claim in the death of their 60-year-old son Bryan. Other Holcombe family members killed in the Nov. 5 shooting included Bryan Holcombe’s wife, his son and his pregnant daughter-in-law. The claim could lead to a lawsuit if the Air Force denies it was at fault.Joe Holcombe said his family filed the claim because the Air Force made a “very serious mistake.”The claim alleges that although Kelley pulled the trigger, “the failures of the Air Force, and others, allowed the shooter to purchase, own and/or possess the semiautomatic rifle, ammunition and body armor he used, and it is these failures that were the proximate cause” of the injuries and death.An Air Force spokeswoman, Ann Stefanek, said the Air Force does not comment on specific claims.“Every claim that is filed is thoroughly investigated and researched in accordance with established law and regulations,” she said. “We will communicate progress directly with the claimant, or their representative, as appropriate.”In its statement about the broader scope of the reporting issue, the Air Force said it has made changes designed to prevent such failures in the future. For example, it is now requiring that leaders up the chain of command verify that criminal history reporting requirements have been met in every case. In the Kelley case, the failure to submit the required information to the FBI was not caught by higher-ups because no such verification was required.Additional training on these procedures is being conducted now. Also, the Office of Special Investigations will require physical verification, in the form of a printout or screenshot, from the FBI’s National Crime Information Center that it received and accurately entered the criminal history information in its database. Thus, the Air Force will verify that its information was received by the FBI, not just that it was sent.The Air Force is not alone is recognizing such reporting failures. The Army chief of staff, Gen. Mark Milley, said in recent days that his service failed in a “significant amount” of cases to alert the FBI to soldiers’ criminal history.“It’s not just an Air Force problem,” Milley said. “This is a problem across all the services where we have gaps in reporting criminal activity of people in service.” Sharelast_img read more

Is that a smartwatch youre not wearing Googles may actually appear

first_img Citation: “Is that a smartwatch you’re not wearing?” Google’s may actually appear (2013, March 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-03-smartwatch-youre-google.html Google has designs on flip-up wristwatch Want to play smartwatch? That’s the game where you pretend to buy a big-vendor smartwatch that doesn’t exist but everyone talks about nonetheless. There is the Samsung smartwatch rumor mill, the Apple smartwatch rumor mill, and, as of this week, a burning-up Google rumor mill. The Google talk was sparked by Financial Times blogger, Tim Bradshaw, this week. In his blog titled “Google is working on a smartwatch, too” he said according to “a person briefed on the project” that Google’s smart watch is being developed by its Android unit, and the watch will “act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system.” Explore further There is no word of a date when it might launch but there are clues that Bradshaw might be writing about more than extra ingredients for the Samsung-Apple-Google rumor mill. Since the project is attributed to the Android unit and not the X Lab, the project might be earmarked for launch rather than multi-phased explorations that may or may not surface any time soon. The Google X Lab hatches technologies for the future such as the much-publicized self-driving cars and glasses. Another clue lies in the date October 2011, when Google filed a patent for a “Smart-watch including flip up display.” The filing described a smart-watch that can include a wristband, a base, a flip up portion, and a camera. The patent described the camera as one that can be in communication with the processor and the flip up portion can form a viewfinder for the camera when in the open position and be configured to display information regarding an image within the viewfinder.A popular view about a likely Google smartwatch is that wearable computing in and of itself is considered as an inevitable sign of the future, which makes the watch undertaking all the more plausible. Moving information away from the confines of desks and PC screens, the mobile computing labs outside Google are busy tinkering with wearable devices that operate in the physical world. While talking sneakers and Google glass already grab attention as what-ifs, they might be less amenable to immediate and easy uptake than would wearable watches. Should Samsung and Apple rush out smartwatches, Google would be left in the dust. As the Financial Times blog noted, smart watches, whether by Apple, Samsung, or Google, would jumpstart the wearables market. © 2013 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Hackers steal bitcoins worth 41M from Binance exchange in a single go

first_imgOn Tuesday, Binance Exchange, one of the popular cryptocurrency exchanges, reported a huge security breach where hackers stole around 7,000 bitcoins worth $41 millions, in a single transaction. The hackers were able to gain a bulk of user API keys, 2FA codes, and a lot of other information. Binance Exchange said that the hackers used a variety of techniques, including phishing, viruses and other attacks. “We are still concluding all possible methods used. There may also be additional affected accounts that have not been identified yet”, Binance said in their official statement. Binance confirmed that only the BTC hot wallet was affected and all the other wallets are secure and unharmed. The affected ‘hot wallet’ contained about 2% of Binance’s total BTC holdings. The firm also mentioned that the hackers were extremely patient and carried out well-orchestrated actions through multiple seemingly independent accounts at the most opportune time. “The transaction is structured in a way that passed our existing security checks. It was unfortunate that we were not able to block this withdrawal before it was executed. Once executed, the withdrawal triggered various alarms in our system. We stopped all withdrawals immediately after that”, Binance’s official statement mentions. Binance said that no user funds will be affected and it will use the SAFU fund to cover this incident in full. Binance has estimated a week’s time to conduct a thorough security review of this incident during which all deposits and withdrawals will be needed to remain suspended. The security review will include all parts of their huge systems and data and the updates will be posted frequently. “We beg for your understanding in this difficult situation”, Binance urged their users. They further added, “Please also understand that the hackers may still control certain user accounts and may use those to influence prices in the meantime. We will monitor the situation closely. But we believe with withdrawals disabled, there isn’t much incentive for hackers to influence markets.” Larry Cermak, Head Analyst at The Block and former researcher at Diar, who conducted a research of the Binance hack concluded that it was the sixth largest exchange hack in history. He also said, “the $41 million is “peanuts” for Binance” and it will take hardly 47 days to make the money lost during the breach. In a live video chat, Binance’s chief executive Changpeng Zhao sought to answer questions about the hack. To know more about this news, read the complete official document.

Lebanese smoking ban suffocating tourism

first_imgImage Source: AFP Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Lebanon tourism operators and associations claim the country’s hospitality and tourism industries are suffering following the national smoking ban laws that were implemented in September.The protested ban prevents smokers from lighting up in all closed public spaces, according to The Daily Star.“The tourism sector is amid an unprecedented crisis… we have accumulated vast losses since the implementation [of law 174] started,” Head of the Restaurants Association Paul Ariss said.“The law was passed at the wrong time when the sector was already suffering from a sharp decline caused by political and security turmoil that [caused a sharp fall in the number] of tourists.”Head of the Union of Tourism Syndicates in Lebanon Pierre al-Ashkar said he warned politicians of the detrimental effects of the ban earlier last month.“We met with the prime minister and told him that implementing such a law in the current exceptional security situation in the country is likely to produce greater loss in the tourism sector,” Mr al-Ashkar said.Heads of the Lebanese Franchise Association and Hotels Association also called for amending the law. “We demand that some aspects of the law are reconsidered after it damaged thousands of businesses and threatened jobs,” Head of the Lebanese Franchise Association Charles Arbid said.“We are not calling to cancel the smoking ban but [for a law] that takes our business into account,” Head of the Hotels Association Pierre Achkar said.Head of the Chambers of Commerce Mohammad Choukeir had requested the Lebanese government consider issuing licenses to institutes specialised in nargileh (smoking waterpipe).last_img read more

2013 ExistingHome Sales Strongest in Seven Years

first_img2013 Existing-Home Sales Strongest in Seven Years Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Existing-Home Sales Home Prices Home Sales Investors Lenders & Servicers National Association of Realtors Service Providers 2014-01-23 Tory Barringer in Data “”Existing-home sales””:http://www.realtor.org/news-releases/2014/01/december-existing-home-sales-rise-2013-strongest-in-seven-years finished 2013 with a slight increase, closing the book on the strongest year for sales since 2006, the “”National Association of Realtors””:http://www.realtor.org/ (NAR) reported Thursday.[IMAGE]Total existing-home sales–including all completed transactions of single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops–increased 1.0 percent month-over-month to a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 4.87 million last month. November’s sales rate was revised down to 4.82 million.December’s sales were down year-over-year, coming up 0.6 percent short of December 2012’s pace of 4.90 million.Removing all other types of sales, sales of existing single-family homes rose 1.9 percent from November to an adjusted annual rate of 4.30 million. Compared to the prior year, single-family sales were down 0.7 percent.For all of last year, NAR estimates there were 5.09 million existing-home sales, a 9.1 percent improvement from 2012.[COLUMN_BREAK]””Existing-home sales have risen nearly 20 percent since 2011, with job growth, record low mortgage interest rates and a large pent-up demand driving the market,”” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun. “”We lost some momentum toward the end of 2013 from disappointing job growth and limited inventory, but we ended with a year that was close to normal given the size of our population.””While sales were up from November, it wasn’t new homeowners driving the increase: First-time buyers accounted for 27 percent of purchases in December, down from 28 percent in November and 30 percent in December 2012. All-cash sales–often reflective of investor activity–made up 32 percent of December transactions, unchanged from November and up from the previous year.Even with prices and mortgage rates slated to rise, NAR president Steve Brown says sales should hold strong in 2014 as job numbers improve. That doesn’t mean the year won’t be without challenges, though.””The only factors holding us back from a stronger recovery are the ongoing issues of restrictive mortgage credit and constrained inventory,”” Brown said. “”With strict new mortgage rules in place, we will be monitoring the lending environment to ensure that financially qualified buyers can access the credit they need to purchase a home.””The national median existing-home price for all housing types in December was $198,000, up 9.9 percent year-over-year. A comparatively smaller share of distressed sales (14 percent compared with December 2012’s 24 percent) accounted for some of the price growth, NAR reported.The median existing single-family home price was $197,900, up 9.8 percent from the year prior.center_img January 23, 2014 409 Views Sharelast_img read more

David Scowsill president CEO World Travel To

first_imgDavid Scowsill, president & CEO, World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC):“The Executive Order issued by US President Trump on 27 January 2017 banning travel to the US from seven countries for 90 days goes directly against the fundamental right of Freedom to Travel. It has created immense confusion among travellers and travel companies worldwide.”WTTC believes that all people have the right to cross international borders safely and efficiently for business and tourism purposes. The blanket suspension of admittance of travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen to the US flies against this principle. Suspending travel based only on a person’s nationality or their origin is wrong.Many travellers have been unnecessarily disrupted, due to the unclear nature of the Executive Order, coupled with a lack of prior consultation and poor communication to airlines and border officials.“If this move by the Trump Administration is designed to ‘prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists or criminals’, it is important to point out that the vast majority of terrorist attacks in the recent past have been perpetrated by home grown, radicalised nationals of the country involved. None of the shocking domestic incidents in the US since 2001 have been attributed to external terrorists who have specifically flown into the country to commit an atrocity. Preventing ‘aliens’ from entering the US for legitimate business or leisure purposes is misguided and counter-productive for the American economy.“Travel & Tourism bridges divides between cultures, fosters understanding across religious and geographic boundaries, and generates more peaceful co-existence. Our sector is responsible for the livelihoods of millions worldwide. The US has suffered in the past from similar isolationist policies. We urge the Trump Administration to reconsider this ban.” US Visa banWTTClast_img read more

Nityanand Swami as the first Chief Minister Tomorrow on Bastille Day stage 12 of the Tour de France will culminate in one of cycling’s legendary ascents: the ride to the barren summit of Mont Ventoux a 22-kilometer path of pain heroism defeat and death Not far from the finish riders will pass a memorial to Tom Simpson the famous UK rider who collapsed and died there in 1967 An autopsy revealed that Simpson had taken amphetamines and alcohol to boost his performance which may have contributed to sudden heart failure This year’s edition of the Tour de France has been remarkably free of doping scandals so far But less than a month ago in another race up the same windy slope fully half the cyclists had a banned substance coursing through their veins It wasn’t a sports event but a scientific study: the largest ever trial to test whether erythropoietin (EPO) a drug that has marred the Tour for decades really enhances athletic performance as users claim The scientists who organized the study have yet to analyze the full results but they have already shared a key outcome with the press: Riders on EPO which stimulates the body to make extra oxygen-carrying red blood cells were no faster than those who took a placebo The finding flies in the face of previous smaller studies and cycling lore and some are incredulous “Based on what we know so far about EPO I would be very surprised if that’s true” says Don Catlin the CEO of Anti-Doping Research a lab in Los Angeles California But Catlin and other doping researchers applaud the team for subjecting EPO to a rigorous trial Such studies are rare; critics have argued that the ever-growing list of banned substances in sports—and the international testing industry that enforces it—have no firm basis in science For the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to ban a substance it must meet two of three criteria: It enhances performance poses a threat to athlete health or “violates the spirit of sport”—a criterion that helped put recreational drugs like cannabis on the list Proof isn’t needed for any of the criteria and evidence of performance enhancement is lacking in all but a handful of instances such as the use of anabolic steroids in some strength-based sports Good studies are hard to do Industry has no interest in footing the bill and athletes would risk their careers if they participated So a team led by Adam Cohen the head of the Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR) in Leiden the Netherlands turned to amateurs They enlisted 48 well-trained male amateur cyclists for a randomized controlled double-blind study—the gold standard in medicine—“as if we were testing a treatment for a disease called cycling slowly” says Jules Heuberger a PhD student at CHDR and a cycling aficionado Cyclists from around the world offered to take part he says “EPO has this almost mythical status People thought it would make them fly like a rocket” Participants were injected with EPO or a placebo for 8 weeks during which they completed seven endurance tests in the lab The final challenge was a 130-kilometer ride ending in the race up Mont Ventoux on 19 June a miserably cold day with an icy mistral blowing down the moonlike landscape The winner a lawyer took an hour and 12 minutes to reach the summit On average riders on EPO were 38 seconds slower than the control group a nonsignificant difference And the EPO users hardly felt like they were running on rocket fuel; 62% guessed they were on a placebo But could EPO the drug that allegedly helped Lance Armstrong rack up seven Tour victories really be useless It’s conceivable Cohen says Riders may only remember winning with EPO and forget the losses he notes The drug could also be a strong placebo; after all sports are a test of the mind as well as the body It’s indisputable that the new red blood cells spawned by EPO increase the body’s maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max) But such an increase may not boost cycling performance Cohen says In long-distance races like the Tour riders rarely perform at maximum uptake Yet in a review of 13 previous EPO studies the CHDR scientists found that all focused on VO2max instead of performance Some weren’t controlled only two had more than 20 participants and none left the lab for a real-world race “It’s not what you would normally consider clear evidence” Cohen says Others are reserving judgment until the publication is in but say they find it hard to believe EPO does nothing There are biological reasons to suggest that increasing VO2max has an effect says Bengt Kayser a doping expert at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland Transfusions with a rider’s own blood have been shown to boost VO2max and performance he says And he notes that the body has EPO receptors in many places including the brain which might provide alternative mechanisms for the drug to have an effect Although testimonials from athletes themselves may not amount to hard evidence they can’t be dismissed says Olivier de Hon a scientist at the Anti-Doping Authority of the Netherlands in Capelle aan den IJssel which advised on the study Sports is full of fads that quickly fade—beet juice rich in nitrates is one recent example—but De Hon finds it hard to believe that cyclists would stick with a useless drug for decades He says the scientists’ time and money would have been better spent studying doping substances about which less is known such as human growth hormone insulin-like growth factor 1 and cocaine Cohen’s group is now analyzing mountains of data on EPO Among other things they plan to look at its effects on blood clotting and muscle recovery They will also send 300 urine samples from both groups to a WADA-accredited doping lab in Belgium to put EPO testing itself to the test It’s still possible that the EPO group performed better in the lab rides but for some reason failed to prevail on the mountain Heuberger says But he would not be surprised to find no difference at all Even if the negative finding holds up EPO may stay on WADA’s list The agency tends to err on the side of prohibition and politics plays into the process as well Some have argued that it’s fine to keep ineffective but potentially harmful substances on the list to deter athletes from using them Cohen on the other hand believes delisting a drug will make it less attractive to athletes If nothing else he hopes last month’s sprint up Mont Ventoux will show that a science-based approach to the issue is possibleA student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill says she was raped by a UNC football player who has not been held accountable since the alleged incident occurred in February Delaney Robinson a sophomore at UNC says she was raped on Valentine’s Day at Ram Village an on-campus apartment complex after finding herself alone with the football player The 19-year-old student held a press conference on Tuesday at her attorney’s office to address what she says is UNC’s and the Orange County District Attorney’s office’s delay in holding her alleged rapist accountable “I did everything a rape victim is supposed to do I reported it I allowed a rape kit to be taken I gave a statement I cooperated with law enforcement and with the Title IX office But six months later the university has done nothing” said Robinson speaking alongside her father and her attorney She said she is taking a public stand to demand better treatment for other students who come forward after alleged sexual assaults Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall said the universitys public safety department is still investigating the case and that his office will evaluate the claim pending incoming evidence including some outstanding lab results Joel Curran UNC’s vice chancellor for communications and public affairs released the following statement: While the University is aware of allegations made today by attorney Denise Branch regarding a student under federal privacy law we are prohibited from responding to those allegations The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our students and takes all allegations about sexual violence or sexual misconduct extremely seriously Chancellor Carol L Folt and her administration have made addressing these issues our highest priority Two years ago the University adopted a revised comprehensive policy on discrimination and harassment including sexual assault and sexual misconduct that was developed based on recommendations and broad input from the campus community and outside experts That policy establishes a rigorous process conducted by well-trained investigators The University provides compassionate care to all students who need support These matters are complex and often involve multiple agencies including law enforcement While the University always tries to complete an investigation as quickly as possible our priority is to ensure that the factual investigations are complete and conducted in a fair and thorough manner While we understand and appreciate the public interest in todays allegations we are unable to comment further at this time Robinson said she reported the alleged rape to a sexual assault nurse at a hospital the Orange County District Attorney’s office UNC’s department of public safety and the university’s Title IX office Robinson says she then worked with the university’s public safety officers who were conducting an investigation Neither the school nor the DA’s office have taken action against the student who allegedly raped her she said Robinson added that investigators from the university’s public safety office “asked consistently demeaning and accusatory questions” regarding what she had been wearing that night how much she drank and her sexual history “I was treated like a suspect” she said Robinson said her “humiliation turned to rage” after listening to interview recordings between her alleged rapist and the public safety investigators who “spoke to him with a tone of camaraderie” She was allowed to review the recordings as part of the Title IX investigative process “They provided reassurances to him when he became upset” she said “They even laughed with him when he told them how many girls’ phone numbers he had managed to get on the same night that he raped me They told him ‘don’t sweat it just keep on living your life and keep on playing football’” Denise Branch Robinson’s attorney said that the Orange County assistant district attorney had said “unconsciousness is rape blackout drunk is not rape” and that the DA’s office declined to prosecute On Tuesday the Orange County magistrate’s office issued a warrant for the suspect’s arrest on misdemeanor assault and sexual battery charges Branch said after Robinson appealed to the office directly and requested a self-sworn warrant which is allowed under North Carolina law The magistrate’s office declined to comment Through a self-sworn warrant people in North Carolina can request that a judicial officialin most cases a magistrateissue an arrest warrant if the civilian has probable "cause to believe a crime has been committed" according to state law Robinson’s accusations come three years after the US Department of Education launched an investigation of UNC’s handling of sexual

by Jayna Kothari | Updated: December 22 2014 12:03 am Related News The recent government proposal to strike down Section 309 as a criminal offence under the Indian Penal Code is certainly welcome news Studies have consistently found that an overwhelming majority of people who die by suicide have a mental disorder at the time of their death However often these disorders are hardly recognised diagnosed or adequately treated The announcement on the deletion of Section 309 does not indicate whether this step is prompted by mental health concerns The government does state however that the proposal is based on the recommendations of the reports of the Law Commission of India The deletion was first recommended in the 42nd report of the Law Commission of 1971 Significantly this report did not make the recommendation out of mental health concerns surrounding persons committing suicide It relied among other sources on the commentators on Manu in the Dharmashastra to state that a person who is driven to death is either “incurably diseased” or “meets with a grave misfortune” The deletion of Section 309 was suggested out of pity or sympathy for those attempting to commit suicide The suggestion came up again in the 210th report of the Law Commission in 2008 a document concentrating solely on the decriminalisation of suicide This report did make references to the fact that persons committing suicide need sympathy care and treatment not punishment But neither report made a strong case for the rights of persons with mental illnesses continuing to describe them as having an incurable disease and deserving sympathy This is a rather outdated understanding of disability The disability rights movement has been arguing for an understanding that is not rooted in a medical or a “disease”-based model but in a social model that conceptualises disability as the disadvantages and exclusions faced by people because of social barriers and attitudes Mental health if seen through a medical model is completely surrounded by misunderstandings and negative stereotypes that result in stigma and discrimination against as well as isolation of people with mental illnesses and their families and carers The social model of disability urges us to look beyond the issues of medical treatment and disease to the identification of the social barriers that deny people with psycho-social disabilities the rights to employment education recreation and even citizenship This social model is the core of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which has been signed and ratified by India That persons driven to commit suicide are more often than not facing mental health disorders and are in need of care and treatment was suggested in the new Mental Health Care Bill 2013 This bill provides that any person attempting to commit suicide should be assumed to be suffering from a mental illness and that it would be the duty of the government to provide him or her with adequate care treatment and rehabilitation The Supreme Court also considered suicide as a mental health concern in its judgment on euthanasia in Aruna Shanbaug vs Union of India in which it recognised that a person attempting suicide is in need of help rather than punishment and it recommended that Parliament consider the feasibility of deleting Section 309 So if the government really wants to ensure that the striking down of Section 309 has a significant impact then it must state unequivocally that this step is in recognition of the rights of persons with mental health disabilities who are driven to committing suicide and that they should not be further punished This could be a starting point for the government to take on and address the difficult issues surrounding mental health — the recognition of an individual’s right to receive adequate treatment and care providing better access to mental health services including mental health as an integral part of the right to health in government policy providing adequate funding to ensure access to healthcare and taking steps against mental health stigma and discrimination Finally the deletion of Section 309 could be the beginning of a series of other deletions of provisions scattered across various legislation that are harmful and discriminatory to persons with disabilities Without any of these steps to take it forward

leads China into the must-win game in Wuhan lamenting his dwindling striking stocks (Source: Reuters) Top News China coach Marcello Lippi says the influx of foreign forwards to Chinese football is leaving him short of attacking options as the country gears up for a crunch World Cup qualifier with Uzbekistan on Thursday Lippi leads China into the must-win game in Wuhan lamenting his dwindling striking stocks after a period that has seen Chinese Super League clubs spend huge sums on overseas forwards “My team is progressing in two aspects: mentally and organisationally” the Italian World Cup winner told Titan Sports “We play to win no matter if we’re at home or away But we have one serious problem and it’s very very serious: I have no forward I have no centre forward at all “I have to move players from other positions to be a centre forward The reason is simple too: clubs can play three foreign players and they like buying forwards “We have good choices in other positions but it is a big problem with the forwards” China are bottom of their qualifying group for the World Cup finals in Russia next year but retain a slim chance of advancing to the playoffs should they defeat both Uzbekistan and Qatar and other results go their way The national team’s lowly status runs contrary to the growing profile and status of China’s burgeoning professional league where clubs have spent tens of millions of dollars to lure some of the game’s leading talent Shanghai SIPG spent 60 million euros ($7179 million) in January to sign Oscar from Chelsea while former Manchester United striker

manager said before the game to have no regrets but I think they will They were never on the front foot and started playing when they were 2-0 down It was a bit of a cop-out but start of the tournament they would have taken semi-final obviously” Keane said during the post-match show “They have been fantastic and surprised everyone by getting to the semi-final but they lacked real quality (against Portugal)" he added Keane’s Irish side though could do with some inspiration from Wales as they head into the World qualifiers and the former Manchester united captain would be among the first ones to put that across to his troops when they reunite for an international game Giggs on the other hand who has left Manchester United after 29 years at the club will be looking to enter into

He also said players have a say in selection of the coach – as claimed by Ramachandra Guha in his resignation letter from BCCI Committee of Administrators (CoA) – but their reasoning should be justified.“There have been instances where players have had their say and sometimes not had their say Let’s not cherry pick cases Maybe Kohli wanted Kumble too A player doesn’t get everything every time they ask – sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t That’s just part of team culture Sometimes they comply and sometimes they don’t In this case it is best to hear both sides of the story before making villians out of people” he said while speaking to IndianExpresscom Chopra further stated that the treatment meted out to Kumble was a bit unfair and could have been handled much better “It could have been handled much better As per Kumble’s statement he was informed of Kohli’s reservations only recently That leaves a sour taste in the mouth – that single factor He would feel slightly hard done by I do think he would have known about the rumours circulating though Had attempts been made to appease things earlier maybe the episode could have been done better It is understandable that a professional employment has to be created after the end of his contract” “For a coach and a team/captain the performance and inter-personal relationship both are important If one doesn’t work it is tough to continue” he added For way forward Chopra said the nationality of the coach doesn’t matter with some former players saying foreign coaches are brought in because they toe the line allowing players tobe as independent as possible – something Indian team had allegedly been affected by under Kumble “Nationality of coach doesn’t matter It is the credentials that matter Just take a look at what they bring to the table and discuss with team captain or the team to keep them in the loop If they have any reservation and the reasoning is just take that into account too Many players have played under different type of coaches and personalities It would be unfair to say that only ‘yes men’ survive He said rebuilding the trust between captain and coach is tough if the situation had become difficult and the loss to Indian cricket team would be known in good time “We’ll get to know that in good time Anil has had a good record and India have been very good with him and Virat at the top Let’s see how things transpire from here Unlikely that Kumble will return as coach but would be involved in some other capacity Lack of trust with the team is hard to rebuild” said the former

leg in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday Cavani who has lost his place in the side in recent weeks latched onto a superb pass over Chelsea’s stretched defense from winger Angel Di Maria and slotted through the legs of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from a narrow angle in the 78th minute "I’m happy for Eddy I’ve said it often because people doubt his scoring abilities but he’s always shown he can score goals" PSG coach Laurent Blanc said "He was going through a very difficult period and I hope that scoring this goal gives him his confidence back" Zlatan Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead with a powerful free-kick in the 39th minute only for Chelsea to level on the stroke of halftime with a rare goal from midfielder John Obi Mikel Edinson Cavani came off the bench to score the winner as PSG beat Chelsea AP Courtois made a string of saves to keep Chelsea in contention heading into the second leg and Spanish winger Pedro almost spoiled the home celebrations in injury time with a rasping drive into the side netting "This is a very strong PSG so I think the performance of our players was very good" Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink said "But we could have been more lethal in the four or five counters that we made" PSG is unbeaten in domestic competition since March and in all competitions since a 1-0 reverse away to Real Madrid in the group stage on 3 November— a run of 23 games Still Blanc’s side could regret a host of missed chances and Chelsea will fancy its chances at Stamford Bridge in three weeks’ time "It’s up to us to go and score at Stamford Bridge we will get chances and we must take them" Blanc said Chelsea knocked out PSG in the quarterfinals two years ago and PSG won when they met at the same stage last season — with both ties settled on away goals PSG’s preparations for the match were rocked by a scandal involving right back Serge Aurier who was suspended by the club for insulting Blanc and some teammates in an expletive-filled online video But Blanc’s side came out with plenty of energy with midfielder Marco Verratti forcing a save from Courtois and Brazilian winger Lucas shooting wide Chelsea’s makeshift defense — missing injured center-halves John Terry and Kurt Zouma — was often caught in two minds whether to sit back or push up on their opponents Thankfully for the visitors left back Cesar Azpilicueta cut out Di Maria’s defense-splitting pass to Lucas as he was breaking into the area But the visitors almost took a shock lead in the 23rd only for PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp to brilliantly push Diego Costa’s header onto the crossbar following left back Abdul Baba Rahman’s drifting cross PSG attacked next but Ibrahimovic — having done well to peel off his marker — delivered a poor downward header that startled Courtois only because it was so weak Di Maria wasted another opportunity but the breakthrough came after Lucas was fouled by Mikel some 25 meters out and Ibrahimovic’s powerful free-kick clipped Mikel’s leg and wrong-footed Courtois Ibrahimovic’s intense joy at scoring was understandable too given that he was harshly sent off during the first half in the second leg last season But PSG’s defense so rarely tested in the French league paid the price for poor marking when Costa rose brilliantly above Ibrahimovic to flick on a corner the ball fell to Mikel and he blasted past Trapp "I think the big regret tonight is conceding this goal right on halftime" Blanc said "I was quite angry about that We gave the ball away four or five times before their goal" While Ibrahimovic scores for fun it was Mikel’s seventh goal in 361 career club appearances Chelsea’s gleeful support chanted "You’re not singing anymore" and from the restart Chelsea could have scored again when Willian played in Costa But he opened his foot too much allowing Trapp to guess the angle of his shot Courtois was much busier stopping efforts from Di Maria and Ibrahimovic and unlocking his giant frame to superbly palm away Di Maria’s curling shot But Cavani pounced to hand Hiddink his first defeat since replacing Jose Mourinho in mid-December "Of course a defeat is never a good or nice feeling but scoring away is always good" Hiddink said "We are still in the race" Benfica edges Zenit 1-0 with late goal Benficas Andre Almeida fights for the ball against Zenit’s Oleg Shatov AP Jonas scored in added time to

Brazilian striker Jonas Benfica’s and the Portuguese league’s top scorer netted for the 26th time this season with a glancing header from a free kick in 91st minute That was awarded after Criscito picked up his second yellow card of the game for a foul on Andre Almeida Neither team really shone in the first leg last 16 game at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon though the win spared Benfica what looked likely to be a goalless draw and a tough time in Russia Zenit despite not playing an official game since December due to its domestic league’s winter layoff produced a confident performance to keep Benfica at bay for 90 minutes Zenit’s Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas rued what he saw as a missed chance to return to Russia with a blank scoresheet "We’ll need to create more chances than today" he said "We held on well . We weren’t as good in the second half" "It was a fair result" Benfica coach Rui Vitoria said "We wanted a bigger win but we didn’t concede a goal and that’s important" Benfica is looking to advance from the last 16 for the first time in four years while Zenit is pursuing its first quarterfinal appearance Benfica had most of the possession but Argentine playmaker Nicolas Gaitan’s neat footwork went nowhere against the visitor’s composed defense With Hulk tightly marked Zenit turned to Danny’s pace to try and break through without success Benfica looked dangerous in the 18th as Almeida broke down the right but when he turned the ball inside Pizzi hesitated before attempting a weak chip over goalkeeper Yuri Lodygin At the other end Axel Witsel produced a low shot in the 52nd shot that forced Benfica keeper Julio Cesar to dive quickly down to his right With 20 minutes to go Gaitan beat two defenders before blasting the ball against Lodygin from short range Just as the match looked destined to finish in deadlock Jonas rose to give Benfica a valuable lead for the second leg in three weeks’ time With inputs from AP Berlin: German chancellor Angela Merkel announced her intention to seek an end to EU membership talks with Turkey during her sole face-to-face TV showdown with challenger Martin Schulz on Sunday putting ties with Ankara centre-stage in Germany’s election campaign In a sharp escalation of an already intensifying diplomatic crisis between two NATO allies with longstanding historical links Merkel said: "It is clear that Turkey should not become a member of the European Union" She said she will discuss with EU counterparts to see if "we can end these membership talks" adding that "I don’t see (Turkey) ever joining and I had never believed that it would happen" Germany will also look at imposing "real restrictions on economic contact" with Turkey as well as possibly issuing a tougher travel warning against travel to the country she said File image of German chancellor Angela Merkel AP Merkel’s tough line comes after Ankara arrested two more German nationals for "political reasons" according to Berlin The plunge in bilateral relations began after Germany sharply criticised Ankara over the crackdown that followed 2016’s failed coup attempt there The escalating tensions have split the Turkish community in Europe’s top economy the largest Turkish diaspora abroad which is a legacy of Germany’s "guest worker" programme of the 1960s and 70s Merkel’s strong stance against Turkey appeared to steal the show from Schulz who had minutes earlier called for an end to the EU membership talks Polls published after the televised debate put the chancellor ahead in the crucial clash Merkel ahead in polls Merkel’s CDU party and their Bavarian CSU allies are commanding a strong 17-percentage point lead over the SPD ahead of the 24 September polls But with almost half the voters still undecided three weeks before the elections the straight-talking Schulz had been pinning his hopes on the prime-time TV showdown hoping to sway millions to his cause and halt a devastating popularity slide A former European Parliament chief Schulz enjoyed a surge in support shortly after taking the helm of the SPD in January only to see that initial excitement fade away But two separate surveys conducted after the debate put Merkel ahead with 55 percent saying in the ARD poll that she was more convincing compared to just 35 percent for Schulz A ZDF survey was closer but still had Merkel ahead with 32 percent against 29 percent who thought Schulz performed better During their 90-minute debate four seasoned TV presenters tossed wide-ranging questions to the two top politicians ranging from Germany’s migration crisis to relations with US President Donald Trump to pensions Schulz who had previously complained that Merkel was lulling voters to sleep with her refusal to engage in combative debate went on the offensive quickly On the hot-button topic of migration he accused Merkel of failing to coordinate plans with EU neighbours when she decided to open Germany’s borders in 2015 to allow in refugees many from war-torn Syria and Iraq But Merkel countered that: "In the life of a chancellor there comes a time when you have to make a quick decision" Recounting the situation when hundreds of thousands of refugees were blocked at the Hungarian border she said she "had no hope that (Hungarian prime minister) Viktor Orban would change his mind" over his tough stance against refugees Given a minute for a closing speech at the end of the debate Merkel turned back to her now-infamous slogan "we’ll manage this" that had marked the refugee crisis "I believe that we will manage this together" she told viewers as she asked them for their support

Javed Miandad went on to say that PCB must not play India at the cost of self-respect Reiterating that politics and sports should not be mixed Khan made it clear that Pakistan will survive irrespective of the future of the high-voltage series "Suppose for political reasons the Indian government decides against playing Pakistan it doesn’t mean we will go bankrupt We will survive If we have survived without India-Pakistan cricket for the last so many years we will continue to survive Yes it will be a setback but that is about it" said the 81-year-old candidly Like in the past the

cricket with you" Thakur had posted Khan said that there can’t be a deadline on Indo-Pak cricketing matters as most decisions are taken in 11th hour but he is hoping for a positive response from BCCI and the Indian government "The Pakistan government is in favour of cricketing ties with India It is time for the Indian government to take a stand "Politics and cricket should be kept aside There will

when do they matter? To that endI propose for consideration three questions regarding the electoral impact of economic policies Firstare voters even aware of the policy in question This is not a trivial pointas public debates over policies often assume most Indians are fully informed about them On the contrarya study by Lokniti found 40 per cent of the rural poor were not even aware of the existence of NREGA in 2009despite considerable effort to publicise the schemeand nearly 50 per cent of Dalits in UP were unaware of the BSPs cash handout scheme in 2012 Seconddo voters clearly perceive the impacts of proposed policies Policies that visibly affect individual voterseither positively or negativelyare more likely to affect electoral outcomes Public opinion data from the 2009 elections found widespread opposition to reducing the number of government jobsbut more diffuse opinions on trade liberalisation Such variations may reflect differences in voter understanding of the costs and benefits of each measure In the current debatewe would do well to distinguish between policies that have a clear impact on household pocketbookssuch as the diesel price hike or the cooking gas subsidy cuts and those that do notsuch as expanding foreign investment in aviation or restructuring bank debt Finallywell-known policies with clear impacts may not register electorally if voters remain unclear about whom to credit or blame Such clarity of responsibility is muddied by Indias multi-tiered federal structure and complicated coalitions Should voters attribute a specific policy to a local politician who publicises ita state government that implements itor a national government that funds it For examplethe recent reforms let individual states decide if they want to allow foreign investment in multibrand retailmaking policy attribution difficult In contrastvoters may more clearly ascribe the diesel price hike to the central government These questions are just starting points and answers will vary between statesand even across the support bases of different parties But if we are to better understand the relationship between policiespublic opinionand elections in Indiawe need to pursue such answers The importance of these efforts should be only too clear in a context in which the figure of the aam aadmi is repeatedly invoked by champions and critics of major shifts in policy without
