Nadal wins his third US Open and 16th Grand Slam title

first_imgRAFAEL Nadal won his third US Open and 16th Grand Slam title with a one-sided victory over South Africa’s Kevin Anderson in New York.The world number one powered to a 6-3 6-3 6-4 victory in Sunday’s final at Flushing Meadows.The Spaniard, 31, has now won two Slams in the same year for the first time since 2013, having won the French Open in June.“It’s just unbelievable what happened this year,” said Nadal.“After a couple of years with some troubles, injuries, sometimes playing not good – since the beginning of the season it has been very, very emotional.”The US Open was the last Grand Slam where he was working alongside his uncle Toni, with Carlos Moya taking sole charge of coaching from 2018.“I can’t thank him enough for all the things he did for me,” Nadal said of his uncle.“Probably without him I would never be playing tennis and it’s great I had somebody like him pushing me all the time.”The result means this year’s major titles are shared between Nadal, at the French and US Opens, and Roger Federer, at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.Federer remains at the top of the men’s all-time Grand Slam list with 19 titles, three ahead of Nadal, who has now won 10 French titles, three US, two Wimbledon and one Australian.Nadal went into the final with a 4-0 head-to-head record against Anderson, and he dominated once again.The 2010 and 2013 champion lost just 15 points on serve in the entire match, did not face a break point and won all 16 points he finished at the net.It was a ruthless demolition job by a man playing his 23rd Grand Slam final, up against an opponent in his first.Anderson, 31, was the tallest player ever to feature in a Grand Slam final at 6ft 8in, and with a tournament-leading 114 aces was always going to rely on his serve to get a foothold in the match.The signs were not good, therefore, when he had to fight through six deuces in his second and third service games as Nadal pressed hard.Anderson clearly felt the need to play to his limits from the outset, attacking the net more than normal to try to keep the points short, but it brought mixed results at best.The pressure told in game seven when the South African pulled a forehand into the tramlines facing a sixth break point.Nadal would break again to seal the set with a wonderful backhand drop volley, and Anderson ended the set with just eight winners from 19 trips to the net.`Anderson made 23 unforced errors in the first set compared with five from NadalThe second set followed a similar pattern, with Nadal again untroubled on serve and this time making the breakthrough in game six with some sharp volleying.By the time he whipped a forehand cross-court winner to take a two-set lead, Nadal had lost just seven points in nine service games.A wild Anderson forehand on break point at the start of the third hastened the end of the contest, and Nadal would clinch the title on his second match point with a clinical serve-volley.(BBC Sport)last_img

BGC plays straight bat to NHS demands over marketing

first_img StumbleUpon Share BGC lauds success of whistle to whistle ban August 21, 2020 The National Health Service (NHS) has demanded that gambling operators take ‘urgent action’ and stop taking credit card transactions ahead of the ban in April, VIP experiences and even bet to view streaming of sports. In a letter to the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC), NHS England‘s National Mental Health Director Claire Murdoch has called for a ban on promotions such as free bets to limit what she has called a ‘vicious gambling cycle’.She said: “I am concerned about offering people who are losing vast sums of money… free tickets, VIP experiences, and free bets, all proactively prompt people back into the vicious gambling cycle which many want to escape.“The gambling industry has a responsibility to prevent the occasional flutter turning into a dangerous habit. The links between the sporting industry and gambling are deeply disturbing, and the tactics used by some firms are shameful.“It is high time sporting bodies get back to their roots and start focussing on fans and families enjoying watching their heroes play, rather than allowing firms to hijack sport in pursuit of profit.”Responding to the letter, the BGC said that it takes its duty of care to customers “incredibly seriously” and was determined to make gambling safer.BGC Chair Brigid Simmonds OBE said the industry is determined to raise standards and improve safer gambling. “The points that you raise are important,” she responded. “Just some of the work our members have already done includes new age-verification checks, increased funding for research, education and treatment, introduced a whistle-to-whistle ban on gambling advertising, worked together as an industry to create GAMSTOP which will now be mandatory for all operators, created monitoring algorithms to monitor play both online and in retail to help identify those at risk of harmful play and just last week waived exclusivity on FA Cup games.”Simmonds revealed the company were also working on affordability checks, AdTech to block adverts and calling on search engines to block adverts from non-UK licenced operators advertising using help search terms.“We have also announced Safer Gambling Commitments which represent a set of measures to deliver long-term and fundamental changes in how gambling companies are run in the UK and how they empower, protect and support their customers. “The five core safer gambling Commitments are targeted to: Prevent underage gambling and protect young people; Increase support for treatment of gambling harm; Strengthen and expand codes of practice for advertising and marketing; Protect and empower our customers and; Promote a culture of safer gambling.“We are currently working with a range of stakeholders on safer gambling initiatives therefore it would be good to understand in greater detail your experience, knowledge and concerns and how we may address them.”The NHS has only recently been pressed into taking problem gambling more seriously, as it does for other addictions such as alcohol and drugs, after moves by Health Secretary Matt Hancock a year ago. Up until then all the problem gambling treatment was funded by the industry, including the NHS run National Problem Gambling Clinic, as well as the 120 GamCare treatment centres throughout the UK.

BOS Sweden submits response to Spelinspektionen bet-type proposals

first_img Share Related Articles Share Global Gaming adds sportsbook extension to Ninja property August 25, 2020 A document co-authored by Swedish online gambling trade association BOS and industry market intelligence firm H2 Capital has urged regulator Spelinspektionen to rethink wagering restrictions designed to counter sports manipulations.It was submitted to Spelinspektionen as part of the regulator’s stakeholder consultation on safeguarding Swedish sports integrity and protecting Swedish sports from manipulation.The consultation launch followed the publication of draft Spelinspektionen proposals seeking to prohibit bet-types on individual athlete performance and match events (yellow cards, penalties, violations) – proposals directly contested by BOS. Spelinspektionen has justified the bet-type restrictions as a means of ‘comprehensively ensuring’ that no professional athlete could be influenced to manipulate a sports outcome based on individual performance. Publishing a 28-page document detailing research and insights by H2 Capital, BOS has refuted this justification as a measure that is counterproductive to building up the strength of the Swedish gambling framework and its channelisation to licensed operators.“Whilst these restrictions are targeting areas that appear most vulnerable to manipulation, the industry’s concern is that restricting licensed operators from offering wagers on these products will merely shift the wagering offshore where there is no integrity oversight,” said BOS as part of its document outline. Drawing on H2 Capital analysis and insights, BOS has therefore drawn key conclusions which Spelinspektionen must address as Swedish gambling’s regulatory authority.It has urged the regulator to undertake a ‘macro-level’ view of regulating Swedish sports wagering, in which the ‘optimal solution in preserving sports integrity’ is led by licensed operators working with specialist integrity associations to monitor potential match-fixing cases. The ‘regulatory logic’ of bet-type restrictions on licensed operators is questioned, as Spelinspektionen would be stifling its own market binding channelization strategy. The BOS report added: “Analysis of the impact of these regulations implies a -7.5% decline in onshore GGR and a +30% increase in offshore GGR for commercial online operators. This translates to a -5.9 percentage point decline in the channelling rate to 75% of GGR from commercial operators onshore.”Representing regulated Swedish incumbents, BOS underlined that although athlete performance wagers remain relatively small, if restricted they could serve as a trigger to promoting unlicensed actors.Further BOS concerns relate to the wagering restrictions creating an imbalanced legislative framework as the laws formulated will only apply to Spelinspektionen licensing system, thereby making it harder to prosecute actual bad actors in terms of manipulating sports Should Spelinspektionen continue with its draft proposals, BOS expects the regulatory authority to seek approval and oversight of its provisions by relevant EU authorities.

Barcelona 3-2 Real Madrid

first_imgThe Spanish Super Cup remains delicately poised after Barcelona secured a 3-2 win against Real Madrid in a pulsating first leg.Real’s Cristiano Ronaldo first headed in a corner, which Pedro levelled immediately from the kick-off.Lionel Messi scored a penalty after Andres Iniesta was fouled, before Xavi slotted home a sublime third.Angel Di Maria then pounced on keeper Victor Valdes’ mistake to breathe life into next Wednesday’s second leg.The match was the first time the two sides had met since Pep Guardiola ended his reign as Barcelona manager and was replaced by assistant Tito Vilanova.Jose Mourinho’s Madrid side looked to pounce on the counter attack from the off, and could have gone ahead if former Manchester United winger Ronaldo had played a firmer pass to Karim Benzema on the edge of the penalty box. Reigning Fifa World Player of the Year Messi – already on the receiving end of a strong challenge from the visiting defender Fabio Coentrao – then blazed over from 20 yards before Pedro tested Iker Casillas.The first half continued in the standard tempo of a ‘Clasico’ as Spanish Cup holders Barcelona dominated the ball with their relentless ‘Tiki-taka’ passing, and La Liga champions Real threatened with their incisive speed and power on the break. Their patience was rewarded in the 55th minute as Ronaldo freed himself from marker Sergio Busquets and headed in a Mesut Ozil corner to claim a goal in his fourth successive visit to the Nou Camp. Barcelona hit back one minute later as Javier Mascherano played in Pedro to slot under Casillas for a quickfire equaliser.Messi then put Barcelona ahead from 12-yards after Sergio Ramos’ clumsy foul, and midfield pair Xavi and Iniesta produced the move of the night as their artistry cut open Real for the latter to score a potentially decisive third goal.Barcelona seemed to have the trophy sewn up, before Valdes dawdled on the ball and substitute Di Maria robbed him to slot home a vital away goal. Mourinho jabbed Vilanova in the eye in a melee at the end of last year’s Super Cup, but there was no repeat of that controversial scene on the final whistle ahead of next week’s decider.last_img read more

Dodgers’ bullpen cracks in the eighth inning as Mets rally for win

first_imgMartin has been behind the plate for 123 2/3 of Ryu’s innings this year. Ryu has allowed just 28 runs in those innings, holding opposing batters to a .216 average.“When you’re a catcher, you’re only as good as how good the pitcher is and he’s been outstanding,” Martin said. “I think he just went through a little rough patch. Everybody goes through ups and downs during a season. I think he’s right back on track now.”Ryu wouldn’t point to any one factor for his return to form — except his new hair color. That “obviously helped incredibly,” he joked through his interpreter. He did acknowledge that “it’s hard to argue” skipping a start didn’t help.“Having that bullpen session to kind of go over all my pitches and work on some of the things I needed to improve on definitely helped for today’s outing,” he said.But Jacob deGrom also pitched like a Cy Young contender.Each team had only two baserunners in the first six innings. The Mets had a pair of singles off Ryu who retired 21 of the 23 batters he faced in his seven innings.The Dodgers had a single off deGrom who also hit a batter. The next 16 Dodgers were retired in order after that errant pitch clipped A.J. Pollock in the second inning before deGrom allowed back-to-back two-out singles in the seventh.Ryu was done after his outstanding seven innings. Adam Kolarek started the eighth by striking out Robinson Cano.Playing the matchup game that will become standard operating procedure during the playoffs, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts pulled Kolarek and brought Kelly in to face the right-handed Todd Frazier.Kelly hit Frazier with his first pitch then struck out Juan Lagares. With another left-hander, Brandon Nimmo, coming up, and Kelly having pitched in three of the past four games, Roberts pulled Kelly for Urias.“That was the factor for me,” Roberts said. “Normally in the postseason, Joe would go through and finish that inning.”Urias hit Nimmo with a 1-and-1 fastball and walked Amed Rosario to load the bases with two outs.Pinch-hitter Rajai Davis spent most of this season in Triple-A and came to the plate with just three hits in 20 major-league plate appearances this season. Urias got ahead in the count 1-and-2 but left a changeup over the heart of the plate. Davis lined it into the left-field corner for a three-run double that decided the game.“He didn’t have his best command,” Martin said of Urias. “He missed up and in on a fastball to Nimmo who had a nice big pad and just took it like a champ.“I think if I’m going to be picky about it and I could go back in time I’d probably call a slider down and in (to Davis). He hadn’t seen that pitch. … I definitely think the slider would have got him. I take the blame for calling a changeup. It was a bad call.” But the outcome might be less meaningful than the first seven innings for the Dodgers Saturday night.Pitching for the first time in 10 days, Ryu put the four-start slump (during which he allowed 21 runs in 19 innings) behind him and turned the clock back to his days as a Cy Young frontrunner earlier this season.“Just good old-fashioned, you know, Ryu,” Dodgers catcher Russell Martin said. “Just mixing pitches — up and in with the cutter, the fastball, using the changeup. Really I think the key tonight was just staying away from the middle of the plate and getting ahead of hitters. He just looked in complete control.”The key might have been the nine days’ rest Ryu had before Saturday’s return to the rotation. Or it might have been the work he did refining his delivery during a bullpen session earlier this week.Or it might have been the pairing with Martin. Rookie catcher Will Smith caught two of the four starts during Ryu’s struggles and the left-hander has a 5.81 ERA when throwing to Smith (26 1/3 innings) and batters have hit .306.

Reinier, to AS: “I am Real Madrid from the Galactic”

first_imgIn March 2018 he was at the Bernabéu. Did you think then that one day you would sign for Real Madrid?The dream of any child is to play in a giant like Madrid. When I visited the Bernabéu I did not imagine that so many things would happen in my life and that I would have the opportunity to make my dream come true.How did you hear about Madrid’s interest?I was at the Club World Cup when I began to find out what was happening. My family and my agent went to visit the hotel and told me. I was surprised and I was very happy at the same time.In Spain it was news that he began to follow Madrid and several players on Instagram. Did you want to have that wink because you already knew you would sign up? 19 Reinier Jesus (18 years old) He has fulfilled his dream, becoming a Real Madrid player. He talks about it in this Interview with ACE In janeiro river in which he surrenders to Zidane, Raúl or Benzema. And it ends with a nod to Real Madrid: “Hala Madrid and nothing else!” center_img One thing is not related to the other. I have always followed several players from various teams. And I’ve always followed Madrid and the cracks that play there.As a child he was from Madrid. Why?Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world and has always had great squads. Since I was a child my father always encouraged me to watch Real’s matches. I am a Real Madrid player since the Galactic, when I was still very young, and even this generation of the four Champions.In Spain there is much talk about the player from Brazil who has grown up in difficult conditions, with few resources. How was your childhood?My parents never let me and my sisters lack something. My father was world champion futsal with Brazil. I started playing on a track on my street. I left Brasilia to Rio de Janeiro at age 11 to try to live on football. My mother and my sisters stayed in Brasilia and only moved to Rio when there was certainty that the project would work and we would have the conditions to live well.Who is your idol?I have two, Zidane and Kaka.How do you think he will react when he sees Raúl, his next coach, and Zidane, with whom he is compared?They are two football monsters with a lot of history on and off the field with Real Madrid. When I see them I will do everything to learn everything they can teach me.Who do you want to play with most?With Benzema. He is a player that I like very much and that is very well understood with all the players.Tell us what your dream debut would be like.I want to debut scoring goals and attending. That is what has taken me to Madrid. But I know that dream is still far away.Send a message to the Real Madrid from AS.Hello Madridistas! I’m Reinier. Brazilian. 18 years. I want to get into the history of this club. I will give my all to honor the shirt of the biggest club in the world. Count me in. Hala Madrid and nothing more!last_img read more

Official: Madrid closes the transfer of Hugo Vallejo to Deportivo

first_imgYou will have the manufacturer’s file to avoid the overbooking with professional licenses (right now Depor has the 25 covers), but Vallejo will be in the dynamics of the first team from now on. In fact, he arrived in Galicia on Friday night and this Saturday will be put under the orders of Vázquez in the last session before traveling to Albacete. We will have to see if the Castrofeito coach already takes him for the appointment in Belmonte.With minutes in SecondThe intention of Real Madrid is that Hugo Vallejo can continue his progression in Second, something that in Malaga did not seem possible. He started playing under Victor Sánchez del Amo and participated in five of the first six days, two of them even as headlines, but soon disappeared from the calls. Now, in the Depor, he may be able to resume his takeoff towards the elite and contribute to the permanence of the Herculine group. The Sports It has made official this morning the culmination of a three-way operation that Diario As advanced on January 10. Hugo Vallejo has become a new blue and white player after they reached an agreement with the Pontevedra Square Real Madrid, who had just signed the player from Málaga. The young attacker will be assigned in A Coruña until the end of the season.The Vallejo is one of the profiles that the new sports direction of Depor has been looking for since the January market began. Both Richard Barral and Fernando Vázquez were aware that they needed band players and that is what the Andalusian can contribute, a fast and powerful extreme that can play on both sides.last_img read more

Madrid does not know how to win a single match in the Cup at Bernabéu

first_imgThe first time that Real Madrid was seen in this circumstance was in another final, the one that measured him against Deportivo in 2002 and was named Centenariazo. The Galician team beat Madrid in its stadium by 1-2 in the year of the expenses of its one hundred years of life. Sergio and Tristán made the Galician goals, while Real Madrid could only shorten through Raúl. Madrid fell with a crash in the Bernabéu before a Real that has been planted in the semifinals of the Cup brilliantly. The affront of San Sebastian strips even more a statistic that emphasizes OPTA and denotes a lack of white fang in the co-operative appointments to a single party in its own stadium. The win or go home Copero is not good at Madrid in the 21st century. In fact it has failed the three times in which it has been seen in that situation. The last, against Real in these past quarterfinals. But if that defeat hurts, the other two times he ran aground were more painful if possible.The previous one was against Atlético de Madrid, in the final of the Cup that the rojiblancos took in 2013. They won by 1-2 in a night that changed many things for the mattress team. A recognized turning point. Diego Costa and Miranda turned the goal of Cristiano Ronaldo. A bitter night for Real Madrid that had to do with Koke flying the red and white flag in the center of the field at the end of the crash.last_img read more

Spector jury may hear of gun incident

first_imgRobitaille told Spector to “knock that off and put that away,” and he eventually let her leave. A similar incident occurred a decade later when she claims Spector again put a gun to her head in the foyer of his home after a night of drinking. At the time, Robitaille had taken a job as Spector’s part-time assistant. An after-hours phone call to Spector’s attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday. An April 10 hearing was scheduled to consider the prosecution’s request. Prosecutors already plan to present testimony from four other women who claim Spector threatened them with a gun. In a separate motion, prosecutors also asked the court to admit into evidence a conversation Spector reportedly had with a retired New York City police officer at a holiday party at the home of Joan Rivers in 1995 or 1996. Prosecutors in the Phil Spector murder case have asked a judge to allow testimony from a former employee and one-time girlfriend who said the famed record producer pointed a gun at her head in two separate incidents that occurred decades ago. In court documents filed Tuesday, Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson said the testimony demonstrates a “long history of gun-related violence directed at women” and should be admitted as evidence during Spector’s upcoming trial on charges he killed actress Lana Clarkson in February 2003. Devra Robitaille, who worked at Warner Spector Records from 1974 to 1977, told investigators that one night Spector placed a shotgun or rifle against her forehead when she tried to leave the producer’s home after a party. “Spector, who was drunk, made some sort of joke and then said, `Just so you know, I’ll blow your (expletive) head off’ or `If you try to leave, I’ll blow your (expletive) brains out,”‘ according to the court documents. Vince Tannazzo, who was working security at the party, said he was asked to escort Spector out after a commotion. While they were leaving, Tannazzo said Spector made numerous profane, disparaging and threatening remarks about women, according to the court filing. “They all deserve to die. They all deserve a bullet in their (expletive) head,” Tannazzo quoted Spector as saying. “That’s why I got permits for all over. Wherever I go, I always keep a gun, because these (expletive), they’re all no (expletive) good.” Tannazzo told authorities a similar episode occurred at the same party the following year.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea posted a record turnover of £443.4 million and £62 million profit on Monday © AFP / ADRIAN DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 31 – A return to Champions League football and prominent player sales allowed Premier League giants Chelsea to record a record Sh51.8bn ($562 million) turnover and Sh8bn (£62 million) profit for the 2017/18 season, the club announced on Monday.Revenue rose 22.7 percent on the previous season thanks in large part to a profit on player sales of Sh14.6bn (£113 million) and a run to the Champions League last 16 which boosted TV income by Sh6bn (£47.1 million).

Flooding fall-out: Council issues latest update on road conditions across Donegal

first_img1pm. Donegal County Council has just issued a latest update on road conditions following last night’s devastating flooding.This is their latest statement to bring the public updated with the ongoing challenges facing the public.North Donegal experienced very heavy rainfall last night resulting in extensive flooding on our roads. Driving conditions were very difficult and many roads had to be closed temporarily. The Inishowen Peninsula was the worst hit with widespread road closures and properties flooded. Since the rain stopped overnight the Council’s roads staff have been taking stock of the damage.Two bridges have been completely washed away either side of Quigley’s Point on the R238 and the R240.The Cockhill Bridge has been closed (R238 north of Buncrana) as has the local road from Drumfree (North Pole Pub) to Clonmany however it is expected that both of these will reopen shortly following some clean up works.Council staff are working to get one operational lane repaired on the R238 between Quigley’s Point & Muff and it is hoped to reopen this road with traffic lights.In the meantime a short local diversion is in place. This diversion is not suitable for HGVs or large volumes of traffic so motorists travelling to north Inishowen are advised to travel via Buncrana until further notice. The R240 between Quigley’s Point and Carndonagh at the Riverside Pub will need a new bridge constructed and is likely to remain closed for a number of weeks at least.Reports are also just coming in of a bridge collapse on the R244 between Carndonagh and Drumfree approx 3 miles from Carndonagh. Further updates will be made available.Road users are being asked to take extreme care when out and about today and members of the public who require assistance including emergency accommodation should contact the Council on 074 91 53900 or out of hours at 074 91 72399.Flooding fall-out: Council issues latest update on road conditions across Donegal was last modified: August 24th, 2017 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:councilROADSupdatelast_img read more

DLDC event celebrates the successes of social enterprises

first_imgAs part of Social Inclusion week 2019, Donegal Local Development (DLDC) hosted an information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’ to showcase the work of Social Enterprises in Donegal.Social enterprises are businesses whose core objective is to achieve a social, societal or environmental impact. Like other businesses, social enterprises trade in goods or services on an ongoing basis. However, any surpluses they generate are re-invested into achieving a social impact.‘Enterprising Communities’ was an information and networking breakfast morning to promote and celebrate the achievements of local social enterprises and to acknowledge the social benefit and social impact they provide. It created the opportunity for representatives to meet & network with their peers and to benefit from shared learning. While celebrating the successes of social enterprises DLDC also highlighted the need for a strategic approach in addressing the many challenges.DLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’The event also provided the opportunity for the DLDC team to meet with representatives from local social enterprises, to further promote the launch of the National Social Enterprise Policy for Ireland 2019 – 2022 and to update attendees on the core objectives of the policy.This policy document is long overdue, however DLDC welcome the strategic approach it contains and the commitment to providing supports for the Community & Voluntary Sector which will help social enterprises reach their full potential. The launch of this policy marks the start of a new phase in the development of social enterprise in Ireland. The speakers representing local social enterprises were selected randomly and invited to come along to share their stories. Although from different geographical locations throughout Donegal, the challenges they face are very similar and the need for additional supports are common to all. The contribution from the social enterprise representatives was key to the success of this event. They are the volunteers & managers who deliver a positive response to social and societal issues and DLDC commends them on their great work.DLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’DLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’DLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’Keynote Speaker was Patsy McGonagle, founding member of the Finn Valley Club and current Chairperson of Donegal Local Development CLG.MC was Andrew McNulty from the Community Development team at DLDC and Speakers on the day included:• Margaret Larkin, DLDC, who gave an overview of the National Social Enterprise Policy for Ireland 2019 – 2022• Karen McCormick – LYIT – Restart+ Programme• Mick Quinlivan – Cairde Le Cheile, Letterkenny• Mary Coyle – Ionad Naomh Pádraig• Michael Travers – Bundoran Community Centre• Tracy Peoples – Premier Services, MilfordDLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’DLDC information and networking breakfast morning ‘Enterprising Communities’DLDC event celebrates the successes of social enterprises was last modified: October 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:DLDCsocial inclusion weeklast_img read more

Ventilation Failures and Vocabulary Lessons

first_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

This year’s conference was held in Frisco, Texas.EEBA was founded in Minnesota in 1982; the original name of the organization was the Energy Efficient Building Association. Thirty-four years later, EEBA is still going strong.Like most national conferences, the Texas event was held at a modern convention center attached to a high-rise hotel. In this case, the soulless commercial space was located a short drive north of Dallas. It’s possible to spend three or four days in this type of convention center without knowing where you are. You could be in a suburb of Seattle or Miami, or almost anywhere in between. If you decide to take a walk, as I did, you have your choice of destinations: either the parking lots north of the hotel, or the parking lots south of the hotel, or one of the strip malls up and down the four-lane roads.In spite of the bleak venue — an inevitable part of any national convention, evidently — the EEBA event was well worth attending. This year’s conference had presentations on a wide variety of topics, from air sealing to building codes. Residential ventilation systems should address risks in the kitchen The conference included several presentations on mechanical ventilation, including one, “A Breath of (Measurable) Fresh Air,” given by Iain Walker from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).Walker’s ventilation advice is based on ongoing LBNL research — research that has been previously reported on GBA. Walker told the audience, “For better IAQ, ventilating your kitchen is about the most important thing you can do from a health-impact perspective.

10 Audio Accessories Under $100

first_imgOnly have a small amount of money left in your budget for audio accessories? No problem. Check out all this great sound gear that’s available to you for under $100!Top image from of Lorelei.As filmmakers, we’re quick to make sure we’ve got all of the camera accessories we need… but what about sound gear?  We recently took a look at a collection of audio gear for under $500. Let’s continue down that path in a more budget-minded fashion with this list of ten must-have audio accessories for under $100.Note: the links below are just examples of where you can purchase this filmmaking gear. These are not sponsored or affiliate links. We encourage you to make your purchases at your favorite gear store!1. Tascam DR-05 Portable RecorderPrice: $99.99Image from SweetwaterThe Tascam DR-05 is a great option as a field recorder for the price tag of $100. While some may not view it as an accessory I’ve been on film crews where this little recorder was waiting in the wings in case the Sound Devices 702 or 633 went down. If you’re looking for a cheap capture solution for small projects, I would suggest it as well.2. Rode VideoMic GO: $90Image from SweetwaterWhile it doesn’t capture the kind of audio that the Rode NTG line of shotgun mics will, the Rode VideoMic GO captures quality sound for its price tag. I’ve used this same mic several times over the years in order to capture scratch-track audio, which is extremely helpful when you get into post-production.3. Audio Technica Condensor Mic: $99Image from B&HIn the event that you didn’t capture all of your audio while in the field, you’ll need to capture some ADR. For that you’ll need a quality condenser mic. The Audio Technica is a great little mic, but you also might want to check out the Blue Snowball, MXL V67G, Behringer C-3 or the AKG P120, all of which are under $100.4. Rode smartLav: $66Image from B&HThis is an interesting lav microphone. Say you’re working on a documentary or industrial video when your wireless lapel mic goes on the fritz. You need this audio and this shot and you only have a limited amount of time. Well, grab your smart phone and connect the Rode smartLav to it and open the app. Just like that, you have a backup for under $100.5. Nady DSM-1X Digital Meter: $75Image from B&HI never really thought about needing to measure the sound level of a space. However, I’ve had several sound recordists tell me they’ve used them when filming in an industrial space where there are large spikes of sound. They would walk with the meter toward the source of the sound while watching the dB level, easily discovering how close they could get to the sound without harming the recording equipment.6. Comprehensive Audio Adapter Kit: $90Image from B&HIt never fails, you’re out in the field and you need some sort of adapter, but that was one of those minute details that you forgot. Well if you’ve ever found your self dealing with this before just know that you aren’t alone, it has happened to me before as well. But, in order to prepare for the next time this will happen here is a great little audio adapter kit.7. Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool: $42Image from B&HThis is easily the greatest tool I’ve ever seen on set. A good friend of mine and fellow filmmaker brought one of these on set and it was a simply a godsend. While it’s not necessarily a piece of “audio” equipment, it will come in handy at some point. For example, when I was on a documentary crew, the sound recordist had a heck of a time pressing the small battery lock release on the Sound Devices 702 field recorder. Enter the Leatherman Sidekick. Problem solved.8. ProTapes Gaff Tape: $20Image from B&HNext to the multi-tool, the best tool for audio — and really any part of film production — is gaff tape. It’s amazingly handy. I was recently working on a documentary film and we needed to attach the boom mic to a C-Stand. When we discovered we didn’t have all the parts necessary to pull this off, we whipped out the gaff tape and strapped the boom pole to the arm of the C-Stand. It worked perfectly. You can also use gaff tape when you need your subject to tape a lapel mic to the inside of their shirt or jacket so you can get crystal-clear audio.9. Vulta Hurricane Flashlight: $37Image from B&HAs soon as you say that you won’t need a flashlight, you’ll need one. When working on set everything is lit in a specific way. So the light is directed toward the subject or characters. This will sometimes leave you in a shady or dark spot where it can be cumbersome to find little things like lapel clips or adapters. So make things easier on yourself and keep a small flashlight handy.10. Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Headphones: $75Last, but definitely not least we need headphones. These same headphones were recommended to me by a film composer I work with, and I’ve used them for over two years now. When you put these on you’ll notice right away that you hear a nice flat sound, and as you should know, when you’re capturing sound you want to make sure that this sound is flat. This allows you to hear everything as it is without any manipulation.Image from B&HFor more in-depth info on filmmaking gear and tools, take a look at these articles:Filmmaking Tip: Gear For a One Man Documentary Crew10 Crucial Pieces of Audio Gear Under $500How to Spot Counterfeit Camera GearDid we miss any crucial audio accessories that we should have added?

Devotees and police personnel pull chariots of Jagannath temple deities to set it in front of the temple on the eve of Lord Jagannath’s annual Rath Yatra festival at Puri, Odisha.last_img read more

Carl Wieman Takes Physics, Education Jobs at Stanford

first_imgCarl Wieman’s crusade to improve undergraduate science education is now based at Stanford University.The physics Nobelist and former White House science education czar has been named a faculty member in both the physics department and Stanford’s Graduate School of Education. The joint appointments, effective 1 September, give Wieman an academic perch to take his research on learning in new directions while continuing to incorporate those insights into the classroom.Wieman joined the Obama administration in 2010 from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. He and his wife, Sarah Gilbert, led an eponymous institute there that worked with several science departments to transform their undergraduate courses by changing the department’s approach to teaching. One outcome of that project is a compilation of effective teaching practices that correlate with improved student performance. The checklist is available in survey form on the institute’s website.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Wieman says that his new job will let him “spend my time on things that I personally find a lot more fun and satisfying” than his 2-year stint at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. In that post, which he left abruptly in June 2012 to battle multiple myeloma, his attempts to reshape the $3-billion-a-year federal investment in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education faced significant opposition. At both UBC and the White House, he says he was “trying to find ways to get people to do things they did not want to do.” Those efforts, he adds, “may have been necessary, but they were not much fun.”Those two experiences, he says, “have earned me the right to be more selfish” in his professional life. In particular, that means conducting research on how students learn and applying those lessons to individual courses in specific fields. “This work involves thinking about interesting intellectual problems, working with good students and collaborators, and writing papers,” he says.These academic pursuits don’t mean a complete withdrawal from the frontlines of education policymaking, however. “I will continue to advocate for the adoption of effective teaching practices and give advice to institutions that want it on how they can improve their STEM teaching,” he says.last_img read more

T20: Kohli may open as India start favourites despite Gayle factor

first_imgSkipper Virat Kohli might open the innings when India take on the West Indies in a one— off Twenty20, aiming to finish their Caribbean sojourn on a high despite the threat posed by Chris Gayle’s return to the home team.After winning the five—match ODI series 3—1, India will certainly have an upperhand despite the presence of Gayle, who can single—handedly swing fortunes especially in the shortest format.However, Gayle will be donning the Caribbean maroons after a gap 15 months during which he has battled injuries as well as poor form during the IPL, which was his last competitive tournament before this particular game.West Indies are reigning world champions with the likes of Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree still a part of the current squad led by their World T20 hero Carlos Brathwaite.Also there’s Evin Lewis, who had scored a 49—ball—100 in West Indies’ one—run win over India in a T20 game in Florida, last year.But T20 is one format where the home team starts on even keel against an Indian team which had its foot firmly on the pedal save an occasional blip in Jamaica.The change in format may bring about some strategic shift in the playing XI with Kohli expected to open the innings.Kohli has opened a lot for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL and also occasionally for India when Rohit Sharma has not been around.While Ajinkya Rahane has had a fantastic ODI series with close to 350 runs including a century and three half—tons, Kohli opening the innings with Shikhar Dhawan looks more imminent considering the change in format.The young Rishabh Pant could finally get his chance on the tour. Pant was a part of the playing XI that last played a T20 match against England in Bengaluru, earlier this year.The Indian team management is aiming to groom Pant as the future limited—overs glovesman and that’s the reason he may get his chance.Kuldeep Yadav, who has been a successful T20 bowler for Kolkata Knight Riders, may also make his T20 International debut after an impressive series in which he picked up eight wickets.Since there has been a pattern in the first XI selection of the Indian team, the last T20 International saw leg—spinner Yuzvendra Chahal pick up six England wickets.With Chahal not being a part of this squad, the management may go for a wrist spinner in Kuldeep, who has the ability trouble the batsmen with his wrong ‘uns.IPL’s highest wicket—taker, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, after some well—earned rest, will be leading the pace attack alongside Umesh Yadav.For West Indies, the onus will be on their spin twins Narine and Badree, who can trouble the Indian batsmen with their variations. Narine may also open the innings, something which he successfully did for KKR in the IPL.Squad Virat Kohli Virat Kohli Published on × COMMENT SHAREcenter_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL cricket India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammed Shami.West Indies: Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Samuel Badree, Ronsford Beaton, Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Chadwick Walton (wk), Kesrick Williams.

OnePlus 3: Third time is a charm?

first_imgOnePlus will launch the OnePlus 3 on June 14. The company will start selling the OnePlus 3 via regular open sale method from June 15, 12.30 AM IST exclusively through OnePlus.net/in. That’s right. No invites needed. OnePlus has been very tight-lipped about its next flagship phone, as opposed to last year when it was all gung-ho about the OnePlus 2, dropping Easter eggs from time to time. It’s been relatively quiet, quietly building up to D-day when it will unveil its third-generation flagship and fourth phone in total.OnePlus devices have always carried an air of intrigue around them. After all, it’s not every day that we see a little-known company launching a phone that punches way above its weight. The OnePlus One did that. The OnePlus 2 also did that. The OnePlus X, well, it tried. Something very similar is expected from the OnePlus 3 as well.Also Read: OnePlus 3 to launch on June 14, no invites needed to buy it Even though OnePlus has been tight-lipped with regards to the OnePlus 3, company co-founder Carl Pei did go on record earlier to say that it will feature a new design, different from its current-generation flagship phones. According to Carl Pei, the OnePlus 3 design will captivate users just as the company’s first phone, the OnePlus One did when it was launched in July 2013.The OnePlus One brought in a characteristic ‘sandstone finish’ design, and the OnePlus 2 followed suit. The OnePlus 3 on the contrary is expected to be all-metal. A render posted by @evleaks gave us the first full unrestricted view of what could be the OnePlus 3. And ever since, multiple leaks and reports have corroborated the image leaked by the notorious tipster.advertisement XPreviousNextThe back is very reminiscent of HTC One phones, with clear antenna lines and squared out camera module with a prominent bulge. The OnePlus logo sits below the camera set-up. The front is more in line with the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2, boasting of a 2.5D curved glass this time along with an all familiar physical home button housing a fingerprint scanner.The left edge has an alert slider and volume rocker, the right side of the phone has a SIM slot and power button. The 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port and speaker out meanwhile sit on the lower end of the phone.The OnePlus 3, much like the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2 is said to retain a 5.5-inch FullHD display with a 1920×1080 pixels resolution. Only this time, an AMOLED panel is said to make an appearance, which will help boost colour saturation.It comes without a doubt that the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and multiple reports have suggested like wise. The phone is also said to offer one variant with whopping 6 gigs of RAM and up to 128GB of on-board storage. There’s no word about expandable storage. On the software side of things, the OnePlus 3 will be running Android Marshmallow-based OxygenOS.OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had recently taken to social media to share a few images that he claimed were taken using the OnePlus 3’s rear camera. The company then shared a few more OnePlus 3 rear camera samples on Twitter. Taken by Pete Lau himself, the camera samples reaffirmed the fact that the OnePlus 3 will indeed have a 16-megapixel camera on the rear. It is further said to sport an 8-megapixel camera on the front.Check out these amazing sample shots taken with the #OnePlus3 camera. Which is your favorite? pic.twitter.com/7A3gfzUX87 OnePlus (@oneplus) June 8, 2016The OnePlus 3 is said to be powered by a 3,000mAh battery and support OnePlus’ in-house Dash fast charging technology.Also Read: OnePlus 3 could be a HTC One clone for all we knowlast_img read more

Tiger Woods makes sizzling start to comeback at Bahamas event

first_imgTiger Woods made a sizzling start to his first competitive round in nearly 16 months as he mixed four birdies and a single bogey on the front nine at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Thursday. (Tiger Woods ready for long-awaited comeback)Woods, who had been sidelined from competition due to a chronic back injury, looked relaxed and a lot like the former world number one who dominated the sport before his health woes as he briefly put his name atop the leaderboard.Greeted by applause from a small gallery, Woods, dressed all in black except for a white glove, calmly stepped up to the par-four first hole on a blustery day at the exclusive Albany course on the island of New Providence. (Woods still dreams of eclipsing Jack Nicklaus’ major record)Woods pulled his opening drive left and narrowly avoided a fairway bunker but then hit a solid approach shot to reach the green in two.The 14-times major champion then missed a long birdie putt before rolling in a routine three-footer for par and more polite applause.After another par at the second Woods began a charge with a tap in birdie at the par-five third.The 40-year-old then shifted into top gear with a run of three consecutive birdies, capped with a three-footer at the eighth, to move into a share of the lead.The only blemish at the midway mark came on the par-five ninth where Woods sent his tee shot deep into the scrub.advertisementHe punched out then missed his approach, botched a greenside pitch on way to taking a six to make the turn at three-under 33 and sit three back of J.B. Holmes who was six-under through 11.The Hero World Challenge is hosted by Woods to benefit of his charitable foundation.The elite 18-man field has attracted some of the world’s top golfers including Americans world number three Dustin Johnson and number five Jordan Spieth, fourth-ranked Swede Henrik Stenson and Britain’s Olympic champion Justin Rose.With no midway cut Woods will get four rounds to assess his comeback before deciding on where and when he will return to the PGA Tour.last_img read more

Australia legend Mitchell Johnson in awe of young Mumbai Indians pacer Jasprit Bumrah

first_imgMumbai Indians have made it to the final of the Indian Premier League on the back of some brilliant performances from leg-spinner Karn Sharma and pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who bamboozled Kolkata Knight Riders batsmen at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on Friday night.Mumbai bowled out Kolkata for 107 with Sharma and Bumrah picking up 4 and 3 respectively and then chased down the below-par target with six wickets in hand in the 15th over to setup a mouth-watering summit clash against Rising Pune Supergiant in Hyderabad on Sunday.Bumrah, who has been instrumental in MI’s campaign this year with 18 wickets in 15 matches so far at 23.22, was interviewed by fellow fast bowler Mitchell Johnson after the match for iplt20.com who also revealed some interesting facts about how the pair met for the first time in 2013 and what happened when the young Indian pacer bowled to the Australian legend in the nets.Johnson: Another great performance tonight mate, how’d you feel?Bumrah: It’s always good you know. This is the third time that Mumbai Indians is in the final. Today to contribute in this manner is a great feeling.Johnson: I thought you bowled really well tonight. I really love seeing you bowl. In 2013 I was here with Mumbai Indians and we were in the final then and now we have another opportunity and this time we could play together. How do you feel?Bumrah: It’s a great feeling. In 2013 I was just a youngster coming out of U-19 cricket. To play with you guys it’s always special. I’ve learnt a lot and hopefully now whatever I’ve learnt I will probably get to use it in the final as well.advertisementJohnson: There’s something which the fans out there won’t know, but when we first played together at Mumbai in 2013 you bounced me in the nets and hit me on the helmet. Can you talks us through that?Bumrah: Usually when you are coming out of U-19 cricket so you think you have pace. So you try to experiment it on bowlers because otherwise if you hit the batsmen they don’t like it. So I thought I’ll try something on the bowlers and so it was a good day isn’t it?” was Bumrah’s reply.Johnson: It was a very good ball and I was very impressed with you at that age and you’ve come a long way. I have been very impressed with how you have bowled throughout this season and I’m looking forward to hopefully playing a final with you. You’ve done so well this year, one more game to go hopefully it’s a win.Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant will lock horns for the fourth time this season in the IPL final at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium on Sunday night.

As Ramachandra Guha’s and Prashant Kidambi’s books on cricket history tell us, in the late 19th century, cricket was a scattered activity in different urban and mofussilTogether, Indian cricket and its supporters tell us a lot about the journey our society has taken over the last hundred odd years. As Ramachandra Guha’s and Prashant Kidambi’s books on cricket history tell us, in the late 19th century, cricket was a scattered activity in different urban and mofussil pockets of pre-Partition India.The first Indian clubs were formed in Bombay, Karachi, Madras and Calcutta and they played among themselves on inferior, bumpy maidans while the sahebs played in a parallel world, on the other side of the fence on their (somewhat) plush green grounds. Around the same time that various Indian political groups began to challenge the Empire’s unquestioned hegemony, Indian teams began to have the occasional game against the goras.At first the Indian teams usually lost, but gradually the outcomes began to be less predictable. These matches would have loud crowds of local janata supporting the native teams. A victory could mean riotous celebrations and the defeat of a desi team, due to what was perceived as biased umpiring, could lead to just plain rioting.It was clear that the game was able to excite passions, even among people who had no access to playing kits, cricketing skills or proper grounds. Or, perhaps, the game worked like a magnifying glass, focusing scattered passions into one flaming pinpoint.The idea of a national team formed at roughly the same time as the independence movement. The important difference was that while Gandhi and the Congress moved out of their middle-class enclosures to connect with the poorest sections of urban and rural India, organised cricket in India kept looking to the Maharajas and Nawabs for leadership.advertisementHowever, unsurprisingly, issues from the country’s politics kept seeping into the sport. Could Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Parsis and Christians play in the same team? What would a team weighted towards upper castes and classes do when the talent of a player from (what one would now call) a Dalit background made it impossible to exclude him? Would the team travel together? Would they eat together? Would they come together only on the playing field?By the end of World War II, there was a large pool of seriously gifted players in the subcontinent, a pool from which a properly selected eleven could challenge any team in the world. A WAG once said that the chief reason the English made sure that India was partitioned was that “a team from a united India would have spelt the end of all meaningful competition in world cricket”.Wistful exaggerations aside, cricketing was among the many intricate networks that Partition sundered, especially in the north and the west of the subcontinent.If the jute factories stayed in West Bengal and the jute fields supplying to those factories went to East Pakistan, people still argue that a bulk of the batting talent stayed in India while almost the entire pace attack went to West Pakistan. While this may be a gross simplification, the fact was that Partition scattered things unevenly across India and the two Pakistans.Just as notions of patriotism had to be rejigged, being a supporter of the Indian team meant different things before and after August 1947. For our test team, the multiple humiliations and honourable draws we suffered in the first 20-odd years of Independence were accompanied by the spread of the radio network.The live cricket commentary coming in from grounds across the world where India were playing left slight scars across the addicted eardrums of Indian cricket fans who grew up in the 1950s and the 1960s, and yet the patriot-cum-cricket fan in us never gave up, never stopped hoping.Indian cricket went through two quantum jumps, one at the beginning of the 1970s and one just after the end of the decade. The unexpected series wins in the West Indies and then England in 1970-71 meant that expectations of the Indian fans went up-we could win Test series, we will keep winning; forget about counting staved off defeats as substitute victories.1983 meant something quite else-we could win even in this format that was, till now, challenging for our slow-scoring batsmen, Test-designed bowlers and sluggish fielders. Earlier, we had won the odd series here and there, most often at home, but this was a World Cup where, in theory, we had been proven superior to every other cricket-playing country in the world.In the years immediately following our World Cup triumph, this superiority waxed and waned, dimmed and brightened, but the screaming, shouting, blue shirt-ripping triumphalism did not waver over the next 30 years.advertisementOf late, though, things have changed. With the Indian team going from being underdogs to bullying overdogs, this triumphalism has transformed into something truly ugly. The final stage of this mutation took place between 2001 and 2011 and is related to, among other things, our improved game, the burgeoning of the Indian TV audience to mammoth proportions and the huge sports industry the IPL has become.Alongside this growth of economic clout is the increasing display of aggression onfield by players.Around 2001 (or possibly a little earlier) our players started becoming infected by what one could call “Aussie-itis” or “Oz-itis”-the extreme sledging and aggressive physical projections perfected into an art form by Steve Waugh’s famous Australians. “Tit-for-Tat”, “toe to toe”, “give as good as you get” and other such phrases became mantras in our press, with our players also spouting these clichés in interviews and such.Some of the Indian team’s retaliations worked, some didn’t. During the 2001 Test series, Ganguly got up Waugh’s nose by making him wait for the toss, Dravid told three hulking Australians surrounding him to “F*** off”, yielding desirable results. But then came the ridiculous sight of Zaheer Khan trying to sledge Matthew Hayden in the 2003 World Cup final in Johannesburg.Hayden was flaying Zaheer’s bowling. Hayden was the master of sledging and this sort of a thing pumped him up; Zaheer, an amateur, struggled for an invective in a language not his own, but eventually got carted across the ground, both verbally and cricket-wise.By the time the next batch of young Indian men put on the country’s colours, the sledging had become as indispensable as batting, bowling and fielding skills.When I bumped into one of these young turks (now a waning senior of fluctuating presence in the team) and suggested that he was being over-aggressive, he snarled into the distance, ‘No, no, nutthhing! Weeyyavtu givvidbag tudem!’The Aussies infected us, but then we added our own strain to the infection. The Aussies might be racist, macho and thuggish, they may also be cheats, but there is no trace of jingoism or militarism in their presentation.Off the field, these Australian men are seen looking after their small babies; even on-field, if there is an addition to their cricketing clothes, it’s to support some cause, such as the fight against breast cancer; their nationalism or political beliefs are kept well out of sight.We, on the other hand, go from the absurd to the ridiculous. Our team walks out wearing military caps in an international match to “show support for our soldiers”; Mahendra Singh Dhoni tags his regimental insignia on to his wicket-keeping gloves in a World Cup; insisting we need to differentiate ourselves from England’s blue, we add one particular colour from our flag to our altered kit and it just happens to be the colour preferred by the ruling political party.You understand what a really wealthy country is when you see extremely well-to-do people happily taking trams to the supermarket.advertisementSimilarly, I understood something about a country that’s really rich in sporting terms, when an Australian cricket fan once told me, “I’m bloody bored of us always winning like machines. I’d really like to see this Ponting side get stuffed, I just don’t like their style of cricket!”While sportsmen are notoriously stupid politically and usually tend to veer towards reactionary strongmen leaders (look at pictures of Recep Erdogan attending Mesut Özil’s wedding), there are also exceptions.Look at the major American football stars refusing to stand for the national anthem, choosing to kneel instead in protest of US president Donald Trump’s policies, or Megan Rapinoe showing Trump her middle digit after winning the World Cup.While we in India are very far from Australia’s wide-ranging sporting success, we are the cricketing world’s boorish nouveau riche and there was some odd satisfaction in seeing the obnoxiously cocky Indian team go down to New Zealand (which would not have been there had we lost to Pakistan, Australia or England) in the semi-finals.As for protests, true independence and true patriotism (and, yes, true sporting wealth) will be evident when some internationally successful Indian sportswoman or sportsman fearlessly stands up to an Indian government on a political issue.Ruchir Joshi is a film-maker and writerYou’ve reached your article limitSign in to keep reading India TodaySign inSign up NOW to get:Premium content on Aaj Tak HD ChannelUnrestricted access to India Today magazine contentGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Government Introduces Political Finance Reform Legislation

first_imgThe provincial government has introduced legislation to change the way Nova Scotia political parties are financed. Under amendments to the Members and Public Employees Disclosure Act, political donations will be subject to an annual maximum of $5,000 per party and political parties will get an annual grant tied to votes they receive in provincial elections. “These are fundamental, positive changes for our democratic system in Nova Scotia,” said Michael Baker, Minister responsible for the Elections Act. “We believe they will immediately improve the transparency and accountability of the electoral system, while at the same time promoting grassroots participation.” The legislation means that political parties cannot depend on large donations from any one person or organization, including private corporations and unions. Only residents of Nova Scotia can make donations, and donors exceeding the limit may be subject to a fine. Recognized political parties will receive annual public financing of $1.50 for each vote. During the transition to the new system, over the next two years, parties have the option of taking 90 cents per vote and a lump sum payment of $125,000 each. All four recognized political parties will receive payments in 2007, expected to total $745,000. One quarter of the amount will be paid in the 2006-07 fiscal year. In addition to the contribution limits, the legislation contains numerous restrictions related to other sources of political financing, such as loans and trust funds. The bill includes changes to the Income Tax Act that will adjust the tax credits for political donations. Smaller donations — under $1,000 — will be encouraged by a 75 per cent tax credit. Nova Scotia’s proposed legislation is similar to reforms introduced at the federal level and in other provinces, including Manitoba, New Brunswick and P.E.I.last_img read more

TrumpModi had productive discussion on range of issues during meeting in Osaka

first_imgOsaka: Donald Trump had a “productive discussion” with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on topics like Iran, 5G and national security during their meeting here, the US President’s daughter and top adviser Ivanka Trump has said as she described India as a “critical” trading partner, security partner and ally of America. Modi and Trump met in the Japanese port city of Osaka on the sidelines of the G20 Summit, the first since the Indian prime minister led his Bharatiya Janata Party to a landslide win in the general elections. Also Read – Turkey preparations for Syria offensive ‘completed’ In a video of Ivanka tweeted by the White House on Saturday, the final day of the G20 Summit, she gave a brief summary of Trump’s separate bilateral meetings between her father and Prime Minister Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Ivanka, who has made women’s economic issues her main focus, said the US President especially talked about the 5G telecommunications technology and its security implications with other global leaders in his bilateral meetings on the margins of the G20 Summit. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping “We are here at the G20 in Osaka and Prime Minister Modi and Prime Minister Abe just concluded a meeting with the President talking about 5G technology, particularly with focus on its security implication,” Ivanka said about the meeting between the top leaders of Japan-America-India here. “A one-on-one meeting between the President and Prime Minister Modi where the same issues were covered, of course 5G, as well as trade relationship between the United States and India, a critical trading partner, a critical security partner and a critical ally,” she said while commenting on the Trump-Modi meeting. “So it was a productive discussion, everything from Iran to national security was covered by the President and the US delegation with their Indian counterparts,” the 37-year-old businesswoman-turned politician said, adding that it has been a productive Friday morning for the US President. Modi himself tweeted that the topics discussed during his talks with President Trump were wide-ranging. “We discussed ways to leverage the power of technology, improve defence and security ties as well as issues relating to trade,” the prime minister said on Twitter. Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale told reporters that Prime Minister Modi and President Trump had a “very open and productive” meeting. “This was a very open and productive meeting. The two leaders had a very warm discussion,” he said. President Trump congratulated Prime Minister Modi on his victory and the two leaders discussed issues related to Iran, to 5G, to trade and to defence relations. On the issue of Iran, Modi outlined India’s energy concerns as well its concerns regarding peace and stability in the Persian Gulf region. Both sides agreed that they would remain in touch on the issue of Iran and will continue to have mutual discussion on how to ensure regional peace and stability. The discussion came at a time of heightened tensions between Iran and the US, which has accused Tehran of being behind a series of operations against oil tankers in highly sensitive Gulf waters. The US has also deployed its warships and additional soldiers to the region. On 5G, the prime minister highlighted the technical and business opportunities that this new area provides for cooperation between India and the United States. The Prime Minister outlined that India would have a billion users of the 5G technology and in that sense India is the second largest market in the world. “The way India moves or the way whatever choices India makes will essentially determine the way the global trend will go,” Gokhale said. He said Prime Minister Modi underlined the importance of Indo-US collaboration in the further development of 5G technology for mutual benefit. The two leaders discussed the issue of 5G at a time when Chinese telecom giant Huawei has urged India to make an “informed and independent decision” on permitting its 5G trials in the country. The Trump administration is putting pressure on other countries to restrict the operations of Huawei and banned American companies buying its products over security concerns. Gokhale said President Trump welcomed this idea and he spoke about the work that American companies are now doing in 5G. He specifically referred to the Silicon Valley and said that since he had taken over as the President of United States he has focused on this area, on developing America’s capabilities in technology, that he looked forward to working with India.last_img read more

Uttarakhand HC issues contempt notices to Centre AIIMS Delhi

first_imgNainital: The Uttarakhand High Court has issued notices to Union Health Secretary Preeti Sudan and AIIMS Delhi Director Randeep Guleria on a contempt petition filed by Indian Forest Service officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi in a case involving him. It has asked them to file their reply before July 26, asking why they should not be punished for contempt of court, according to the official orders. The matter relates to an order passed by the high court on August 21, last year while hearing the case of Chaturvedi. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! In its order, the court had termed as “vindictive” the attitude of the central government and imposed on it a cost of Rs. 25,000. The court was hearing Chaturvedi’s petition against an order passed by chairman of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), New Delhi, on July 27, 2018. The CAT chairman had stayed the proceedings of circuit bench of the tribunal in Nainital for a period of six weeks in the matter related to adverse entries into appraisal report of Chaturvedi, for financial year 2015-16, when he was serving in AIIMS on central deputation. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed Chaturvedi, a 2002 batch officer of IFS, had sought quashing of orders of the CAT chairman and directions to Nainital bench of the tribunal to allow its proceedings. However, the AIIMS challenged this order of high court before the Supreme Court in October last year. On February 1, this year, the apex court not only upheld the orders of the high court but also the additional cost of Rs 25,000. Respondents have always acted with unprecedented haste while passing any illegal order or causing injury to petitioner, whether it be awarding zero grading in 48 hours (for which statutory instructions provide a period of 3 months) or removal of petitioner from post of CVO, to protect influential corrupt accused, in which around 20 signatures were recorded in just 24 hours. However, when it comes to compliance of lawful directions of courts in favour of petitioner, they are extremely slow/reluctant, Chaturvedi’s plea read.last_img read more

Former FrancoMoroccan Journalist Zineb El Rhazoui Denounces AntiSemitism

Rabat – Former Franco-Moroccan journalist at the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo,” Zineb El Rhazoui, has opened up about anti-Semitism in the world, especially in Morocco, where she was born.Zineb El Rhazoui, who is now living under police protection following the Charlie Hebdo attacks in 2015, has spoken up in the French publication L’Observateur regarding the recent manifesto signed by 250 French personalities against the “new anti-Semitism.”In the newspaper column, the 36-year-old activist supports the signatories, who have been accused by some groups of stigmatizing Muslims and increasing religious sectarianism. El Rhazoui spent most of her childhood in Morocco where she recalls hearing the word “Yhoudi” (Jewish) as an insult for the first time 30 years ago.“It was in a large family reunion and someone had used the phrase ‘Yhoudi ould lyhoud’ (Jewish son of a Jew) to tell him he was a naughty kid,” she said.Though the former journalist explained that she would hear different variations of this “insult” throughout her life in Morocco, she still identifies her homeland as “the least anti-Semitic in the Arab world.”She then recounts how the director of her primary school severely punished her and her classmates, after they threw trash in the yard of the neighbor’s house and insulted to the residents, a Jewish family.“For the first time, we realized that our anti-Semitism was wrong. Ironically, it was our professor, a brilliant Palestinian intellectual refugee in Morocco–the founder of our school–who taught us.”“The New Anti-Semitism” is a book to be published Wednesday in France where fifteen French intellectuals take the pen to denounce the “poison of anti-Semitic crimes committed in France by Islamists,” according to French media Le Parisien.More than 250 signatories responded to a call by a collective, including El Rhazoui, the former director of “Charlie Hebdo” Philippe Val, the former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, three former French prime ministers, religious representatives, intellectuals, and several artists. read more

Saudi Television Airs PolisarioFriendly Documentary Crosses Red Line in Relationship with

Rabat – A documentary on Western Sahara, aired on Saudi-owned Television Al-Arabiya, has put forth pro-Polisario claims, putting Saudi Arabia’s Moroccan ally in an uncomfortable position regarding its Western Sahara claims.While refraining from overtly espousing a number of pro-Polisario concepts like “occupation” or “colonization,” the historical time frame presented in the show unequivocally buttressed the claim that Morocco “invaded” and “occupied” Western Sahara when Spain left the territories.Al-Arabiya added insults to injury, however. In addition to its pro-separatist historical timeline, the documentary’s narrative suggested that the international community recognizes the Polisario Front, the separatist group claiming independence for the self-styled Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), as “the legitimate representative of the Sahrawis.” Morocco and Saudi Arabia are historically strategic allies, with especially strong bonds between the two royal families. But the recent months have seen a pattern of gradual decline of warmth in relations that the two kingdoms used to enjoy.Is it all about Morocco’s position in the Gulf crisis?For all the pedigree of the increasingly complicated diplomatic ties between Rabat and Riyadh, Morocco’s position of “constructive neutrality” in the ongoing spat between the Saudi-led group—Egypt, Bahrain, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia—and Qatar may be the main reason for the sustained tension, observers have suggested.The suggestion was reinforced in a recent wide-ranging interview that Morocco’s foreign affairs minister Nasser Bourita gave to Qatar-owned Al Jazeera.Speaking to Al Jazeera journalist Jalal Chahda on the Bila Houdoud (Without Borders) program, Bourita gave a wide-ranging view of Morocco’s diplomacy, touching on the kingdom’s neutrality in the Gulf crisis.“If the parties so wish, the Kingdom of Morocco is ready to offer its services to foster a frank and comprehensive dialogue,” Morocco said in the wake of the crisis in July 2017. Bourita reiterated Morocco’s belief in “Muslim solidarity,” calling the now defunct Gulf Cooperation Council “the only point of light in the Arab world.”As Al-Arabiya, which considers itself to be a counterbalance to Al Jazeera, aired its Western Sahara missile barely a week after Bourita’s interview, it is safe to assume that Morocco’s refusal to pick sides in the Gulf crisis, or more precisely Morocco’s refusal to side with the Saudi-led blockade against Qatar, has still not been swallowed in Riyadh.Déjà vu?In the weeks before June 13, 2018, Saudi Arabia actively lobbied in favor of the US-led North American bid to host the 2026 World Cup. The June vote followed a number of anti-Moroccan sentiments from Turki Al-Sheikh, the chairman of the Saudi General Sports Authority.The episode ignited strong feelings in Morocco, with many Moroccans calling on the government to revise its diplomatic stance vis-a-vis Riyadh. Other events pointed to the “historical lie” that pan-Arabism has always been.But while the gradual rift received considerable news coverage, both countries have been careful enough not to openly attack each other on highly important issues. Morocco has been especially diplomatic even when declining to cater to Saudi demands that did not dovetail with its interests.“If relationships are measured by different schedules, this trivializes the relationship,” Bourita said in his Al-Jazeera interview. Bourita was explaining why Morocco, which was initially part of Crown Prince MBS’s infamous world tour, finally removed itself from the Saudi prince’s itinerary.Need for a responseHowever, in response to Al-Arabiya’s documentary, many have suggested that Morocco’s diplomatic attitude towards Riyadh’s undiplomatic moves will have to change sooner rather than later. The documentary, one report contended, is a “violation of the historical friendship” between Saudi Arabia and Morocco.The point is that while Moroccans have come to expect mild anti-Moroccan sentiments from some quarters in Riyadh, an overt attack on Morocco’s territorial integrity cannot be put in the same basket as other occasional mood swings or miscommunication from the likes of Al-Sheikh.In his Al-Jazeera interview, Bourita said that Morocco’s sovereignty over its southern territories is non-negotiable. Bourita’s firmness on that occasion was reminiscent of his statements when Morocco severed ties with Iran, which it accused of “militarily and logistically” helping Polisario through its Hezbollah proxy.Most recently, on January 29, Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the UN Omar Hilale said that Morocco is unfailingly adamant when it comes to its territorial integrity.“That’s the top. That’s the bottom. That’s everything, and within the sovereignty of Morocco…. Outside autonomy, nothing,” the Moroccan diplomat said of the ongoing UN-led talks on Western Sahara.He pointed out that the 2007 Autonomy Plan, which grants local Sahrawis the “largest operative power” under Moroccan sovereignty, is the furthest Morocco could concede. And, like Bourita, Hilale went on to argue Morocco’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are sacred and non-negotiable.But now that a Saudi-owned channel has crossed what Rabat considers a red line, how will Rabat respond?As narratives hostile to Moroccan interests continue to flourish in Saudi public discourse, it remains to be seen whether this time Rabat will at least formally notify Riyadh that there are some things that Morocco does not tolerate. read more

Ban welcomes 12 billion from World Bank to fight food crisis

30 May 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed $1.2 billion in funding from the World Bank to help tackle the global food crisis that has emerged in recent months. “The Secretary-General welcomes the announcement by the World Bank of a $1.2 billion rapid financing facility as an important step in providing quick support to those most affected by the current food security crisis,” a spokesperson for Mr. Ban said in a statement.According to the UN, some 860 million people are suffering from hunger and malnourishment, a situation that has been worsened by recent severe price rises for food staples such as rice and wheat.UN agencies also forecasted in a report issued earlier this week that food prices are likely to remain high over the next decade.Mr. Ban said today that there is a need to provide a closely coordinated and coherent response to the global food crisis in the short, medium and long term.In Rome, starting on Tuesday, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will chair a three-day summit on the crisis, bringing together the heads of key UN agencies, as well as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, along with many Heads of State and Government. read more

Security Council members voice hope that political efforts will foster positive change

“Members of the Council noted various political efforts aimed at achieving the goals set out in Security Council resolutions,” said the current President of the Council, Ambassador Sergey Lavrov of the Russian Federation, in a statement to the press.”They expressed hope that all these efforts would bring about positive changes on the ground, including a non-violent resolution of the situation around Chairman [Yasser] Arafat’s headquarters in Ramallah and the arrival the fact-finding team by the end of the week,” he added, referring to the mission initiated by Secretary-General Kofi Annan and welcomed by the Council to develop accurate information regarding recent events at the Jenin refugee camp.Council members were informed that the Secretary-General expected the fact-finding team to arrive in the region by the end of the week as originally planned, Ambassador Lavrov said. He added that the members would continue to follow the situation in order to ensure the implementation of the Council’s latest resolutions on the Middle East.Consultations on the situation in the Middle East are scheduled for tomorrow, according to the President, who said the members would be briefed by UN officials before holding another round of discussions on the Secretary-General’s initiative concerning a multinational force for the Palestinian territories.Meanwhile, talks in New York on the fact-finding mission between UN and Israeli officials suspended this afternoon. A UN spokesman announced that they will resume tomorrow morning. read more

Hopes high for new leader to pressure Bank of Japan supereasy monetary

TOKYO – Hopes are high in Japan Inc. for the new prime minister. Stocks are recovering. The central bank is set to supercharge an already loose monetary policy. The soaring yen, a big minus for exporters, is reversing course.The bullish mood in the air is all about “Abenomics” — a reference, as dubbed by experts and market players, to Shinzo Abe, the shoo-in comeback prime minister when Parliament votes next week.But experts are already wondering how long that celebration is going to last.“This is just the honeymoon,” said Masaaki Kanno, chief economist at J.P. Morgan in Tokyo.Abe has made reviving the economy a priority, and is pushing for a 2 per cent inflation “target,” double the central bank’s “goal” now.That’s designed to fight a problem that was until recently relatively unique in the world — deflation, or continually dropping prices, which deadens economic activity. The Japanese economy has been stuck in deflation for two decades.The Bank of Japan, ending a two-day policy board meeting Thursday, further loosened its super-easy monetary policy, pumping more money into the financial system by expanding its asset purchase program by about 10 trillion yen ($119 billion) for a total of 101 trillion yen ($1.2 billion).The bank has now eased monetary policy five times this year. Japan’s benchmark interest rates are already at zero.The central bank also paid respect to Abe. It said it will consider pricing goals and report back at the next meeting in January. Bank of Japan Gov. Masaaki Shirakawa made clear in his news conference after the meeting the bank was responding to Abe’s requests.“One by one, my election promises are becoming realized,” Abe told reporters, noting Shirakawa had telephoned him to assure him that monetary easing will be enhanced.Abe’s pro-business, conservative Liberal Democratic Party was voted back into power in a landslide in Sunday’s elections.Before a change of power in 2009, the party ruled virtually without interruption for a half-century, engineering Japan’s stellar growth into the world’s third-largest economy.Besides generous promises to boost public-works spending — by as much as 10 trillion yen ($119 billion), according to party officials — Abe is pressuring the central bank to work more closely with the government.Such pressures are a departure from the past. But they are also growing in other parts of the world, including in the U.S. and parts of Europe.What remains unclear is exactly how the 2 per cent inflation target will be achieved. A weakening yen, though favourable for Japanese businesses, is likely not enough to get a lagging economy back on course.In the long run, Japan needs widespread economic reforms, opening up of markets and freeing up of tight protective regulations, to get new life back into the economy, analysts say.Job growth in recent years has been limited, often in low-pay part-time sectors. Hopelessness among the young generation is intensified by the prospect of having to foot the bill for one of the world’s most rapidly aging societies.“Getting out of deflation can’t be done by monetary easing alone. It’s not a fix-it-all. It’s not a magic wand,” said Katsuyuki Hasegawa, chief market economic at Mizuho Research Institute. “You need a whole package of measures.”A new business mentality is also needed, one that nurtures young entrepreneurs like Reina Otsuka, 32, who runs her own online business called “eco+waza” selling Japanese ecological products, like cast-iron rice cookers and charcoal deodorizers, for the global market.The government hasn’t been much help to Otsuka’s efforts in the past, but she had hopes for Abe, at 58, a young leader by Japanese standards, and prime minister in 2006-2007.“It is nice that he is still young. I hope he can show leadership,” she said, expressing hopes the government will let the private sector alone and get on with business.So far, Abenomics is on a roll.The benchmark Nikkei soared earlier this week, although it lost some of the gains Thursday. The dollar has recovered to mid-84 yen levels from below 80 yen levels in recent months.Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda welcomed Abe’s pledge to work with the Bank of Japan, and expressed hopes the yen would keep sinking.Still, Abenomics is not without risks.So much of its best scenario relies on the confidence people have in Japan’s ability to sustain ballooning public debt, estimated at more than 200 per cent of its economy, or gross domestic product. That debt will rise if Abe executes his plan for more spending.Government bonds have remained stable so far. But if that confidence is lost, bonds could lose their perceived safety and that would endanger the country’s ability to borrow, Kanno warned.Setting an inflation target is a tricky idea, Kanno said. If a C student has been failing at trying to get a B, is targeting an A going to make a difference?And the idea that people will go shopping, expecting prices to go up later, is just ridiculous, he said. People will jump to start consuming — only when they see prices shooting up.“It takes a long time to get out of deflation,” Kanno said. “One needs to proceed with caution.”___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at www.twitter.com/yurikageyama Hopes high for new leader to pressure Bank of Japan, super-easy monetary policy loosened by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Dec 20, 2012 4:13 am MDT read more

European ministers tell Assembly UN is proper place to tackle phenomenon of

Also addressing the UN General Assembly today was Ulla Tøernæs, Minister for Development Cooperation from Denmark, who highlighted the “ever more inter-connected” threats and challenges facing the international community, including displacement and irregular migration, as well as violations of human rights and armed conflict.Given the evolving global landscape, there is a need for leadership and common purpose to steer the UN in a new direction by breaking the status quote and reforming the UN development system, bridging immediate relief and long-term development objectives. “Staying on the current path is not an option if we want to maintain the legitimacy of the United Nations. Fundamental and ambitious reform is the only way forward,” Ms. Tøernæs said. Full statement available here Minister for Foreign and European Affairs Jean Asselborn of Luxembourg addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventy-second session. UN Photo/Cia Pak Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, said the UN was the appropriate place to tackle the phenomenon of mass migration. “The causes are manifold: demographic pressures, climate change, conflict, humanitarian catastrophes. Perfectly respectable economic motivation, both in the country of origin and that of destination are also often the cause of such movement,” he added. He also called on the five permanent Members of the UN Security Council to forgo the use of the veto in cases of mass atrocities, such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Full statement available here .“Large displacements of people have reached unprecedented levels in recent years,” Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso María Dastis Quecedo told the Assembly’s 72nd general debate. “The two Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants that we have undertaken to adopt in2018 should confirm the concerted, equitable and humane response to the phenomenonof refugees,” he added. In a wide-ranging speech that touched on all major world crises, as well as development and climate change, Mr. Dastis expressed “the sincere gratitude of the people of Spain for the multitude of heartfelt displays of support and affection we have received from around the world” following last month’s terrorist attack in Barcelona. “Terrorism will be vanquished through unity, perseverance and the full weight of the law,” he said.

Drones have been banned from flying over Windsor throughout the Royal wedding weekend due to privacy and security fears.Thames Valley Police requested a Restriction of Flying Regulation order over concerns that the newlyweds’ royal carriage procession could be filmed from above using the unmanned aerial vehicles.The order was granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for both Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 May to ensure that any overnight guests leaving the evening reception might also be protected.Police are concerned that if a number of drones are flown simultaneously, they could collide and fall out of the sky, injuring the royal couple or well-wishers lining the route.They could also be a danger to any police security helicopters flying overhead, providing cover for their officers protecting the royals on the ground.The force, which is responsible for the security of Prince Harry and Ms Markle on the streets of Windsor, is calling on the public to keep an eye out for drone pilots. They have asked the tens of thousands of people expected to line the route to call them urgently if they see one taking off on the wedding day.The enforcement will be monitored and enforced throughout the event and offenders will be liable for prosecution. Supt Jim Weems, tactical commander for the policing operation said: “This Restriction of Flying Regulation is a routine measure for a large scale event such as this and is part of the broad range of security measures that are in place to deliver a safe and secure day for everyone.”It involves a ban on all aircraft, as well as drones, flying below 2,500 feet in and around the Windsor Castle estate.It does not apply to commercial aircraft flying overhead to add from nearby Heathrow Airport.A Windsor Castle source said: “The Queen was notified that an order was being sought to prevent drones flying over Windsor Castle on the wedding day and she agreed to it.“They are a nuisance and intrusive and Thames Valley Police are asking the local people to report a drone if it is in the air or if they see somebody preparing to take one off.“They would be an irritation and now the CAA has officially banned them it is hopefully one less headache the security services will have to deal with on the wedding day itself.“There will be more than enough cameras on the royal couple without these flying unauthorised eyes-in-the-sky”.

Komatsus ACdrive 730E8 mining truck offers higher haul speeds simpler maintenance

first_imgKomatsu Australia has announced a new AC-drive version of its 730E-8 mine truck, “providing higher haul speeds and simpler maintenance requirements, resulting in higher productivity, reduced downtime – and industry-leading availability. With a true payload of 181 t, the 730E-8 is powered by a Tier 4 compliant 1,492 kW engine, and is designed and manufactured to the same engineering principles as Komatsu’s large Ultra-Class mining trucks.” According to Michael Hall, Komatsu Australia’s National Product Manager, Mining, not only is its AC drive system lighter than either mechanical or DC transmission systems, it provides faster acceleration and higher top speeds, while delivering more reliable performance and easier maintenance.Top speed of the 730E-8 is 64 km/h – 15% higher than its predecessor – plus it can handle effective gradients up to 12%, for higher productivity.In addition, the AC control system offers independent control of the rear wheel motors, giving outstanding traction in wet and slippery conditions, reducing tyre wear and improving operator confidence.Its GE35B AC-drive wheel motors, designed collaboratively between Komatsu and GE Mining, have no brushes, eliminating flashover, and a higher thermal capacity.A 2,760 kW retarding system provides advanced braking capacity, giving the ability to handle steep continuous descents and sharp switchbacks. This electric dynamic retarding enhances productivity and operator confidence, while eliminating the need for excessive mechanical braking effort.Hall said the increased reliability of the AC powertrain, plus its easier maintenance translated into industry-leading availability for the 730E-8.“Our 730E DC truck has delivered 90-94% availability to mines around the world, over hundreds of thousands of operating hours,” he said. “In comparison, the industry average for this class of truck is well down in the 80% range. That additional availability – which we expect to be even higher with the AC-drive 730E-8 – translates into an additional 36 weeks, or nine months, per truck over a 10-year operating life.“Overall our diesel/electric AC powertrain is more efficient, offers better operating characteristics and is more cost effective than a comparable DC powertrain,” said Hall. Our new AC drive 730E-8 has been configured for the challenges of the future, with miners frequently moving to smaller ore bodies in more remote locations. It is designed to be quickly deployed into difficult projects and then moved to the next opportunity as necessary.”Hall said the 730E-8’s ‘bolt-together’ design made field assembly and disassembly less complicated, reducing the need for large numbers of skilled technicians in the site assembly process.“The simplicity of its design makes it easier to train service technicians and complete regular maintenance tasks, with fewer hoses, bearings, pumps and wear components than most other mining trucks,” he said.The 730E-8 also incorporates an easily removable powertrain module, further reducing the time needed to complete on-site maintenance.“Maintenance requirements have also been streamlined through the use of Komatsu’s KOMTRAX Plus remote monitoring system, allowing the logging of data such as operating hours, component trends, machine utilisation (including idle time and fuel consumption) and production information for on-line analysis,” said Hall.The 730E-8 can also be fully integrated with management systems such as Modular Mining’s Dispatch and MineCare products.“In addition, the new truck’s cab brings the same comfort features and operator controls used in Komatsu’s Ultra-Class trucks, including air-ride seats, easy-to-use instrument panel with automatic speed control and fully adjustable climate controls,” he said.Brief specs of the 730E-8 are: Payload, 181 t; body capacity, 111 m3; engine, Komatsu SSDA16V159 QSK50 rated at 1,492 kW; maximum loaded speed, 2% grade, 62.6 km/h; braking system, 2,759 kW electric dynamic retarder plus dry disc brakes front and rear; turning circle diameter, 27.1 m; tyre options, 37.00 R57 (standard), 40.00 R57 or 42/90 R57 (optional).last_img read more

CocaCola ne va pas abandonner le bisphénol A

first_imgCoca-Cola ne va pas abandonner le bisphénol ALors de son meeting annuel à Atlanta, Coca-Cola a décidé de ne pas suivre l’avis de 26% de ses actionnaires, qui réclament l’abandon du bisphénol A dans la fabrication des canettes. Une substance qui préoccupe de plus en plus les consommateurs et qui a récemment été interdite en Europe dans la fabrication des biberons.Chez Coca-Cola un actionnaire sur quatre ne souhaite plus que les canettes du célèbre soda contiennent du bisphénol A. Et pour cause, si les études épidémiologiques disponibles ne sont pas suffisantes à ce jour pour permettre de confirmer ou d’infirmer des effets à long terme sur la santé de l’Homme, le principe de précaution est jugé très important. De plus, l’Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm) se disait préoccupé le mois dernier par l’impact possible sur la reproduction du bisphénol A (BPA), récemment interdit dans la fabrication des biberons en Europe, aux Etats-Unis et au Canada. À lire aussiVoici l’oiseau le plus dangereux au mondeCe qui rend ces premières observations préoccupantes, c’est le fait que le bisphénol A soit utilisé comme revêtement interne des boîtes de conserve, dans des bouteilles en plastique ou encore dans des canettes comme chez Coca-Cola. Des produits utilisés par des millions de personnes au quotidien. Le danger serait que la substance se retrouve dans les aliments et boissons contenus dans ces récipients.Pourtant, Muhtar Kent, PDG de Coca-Cola depuis 2008, refuse de faire prévaloir le principe de précaution. Il a répondu à ses actionnaires que la science ne permettait pas encore de justifier une telle décision et qu’il était donc prématuré d’arrêter d’utiliser le BPA, rapporte le Vancouver Sun. Le responsable ajoute :  “Si la compagnie avait le moindre doute au sujet de la sécurité de ses emballages, elle arrêterait de s’en servir”. Pourtant, des associations ainsi qu’un nombre grandissant de consommateurs ne cessent d’élever le ton pour que cette substance soit bannie de notre quotidien. Coca-Cola reste l’une des boissons les plus populaires au monde et il est fort probable que cette décision concernant le bisphénol A n’ait pas de réel impact sur ses ventes. Il sera très difficile dans ce cas de faire plier le géant américain si la législation, aux Etats-Unis ou en Europe, ne bouge pas concernant les canettes.Le 3 mai 2011 à 11:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Une planète naine couverte de cristaux de glace

first_imgUne planète naine couverte de cristaux de glace Des astronomes européens viennent d’annoncer avoir découvert qu’Haumea, la cinquième planète naine de notre système solaire, est couverte de cristaux de glace.   La petite planète Haumea, située à 5 milliards de kilomètres du Soleil, est la cinquième planète naine du système solaire. De forme ovale et de 2.000 kilomètres de long, elle tourne à une telle vitesse qu’elle effectue une rotation complète en moins de quatre heures. Pour les astronomes, cette vitesse de rotation et cette forme pourraient s’expliquer par l’entrée en collision avec un autre objet céleste.  À lire aussiSoleil : Pourquoi est-ce que l’on bronze ?Cependant, la découverte qui vient d’être faite grâce au Very Large Telescope de l’ESO concerne la structure d’Haumea et d’Hi’iaka, un de ses satellites de 200 à 300 kilomètres de diamètre. La première serait recouverte de glace aux trois-quarts et le second en totalité.Benoît Carry, co-auteur de l’étude qui vient d’être publiée dans la revue Astronomy and Astrophysics explique dans un communiqué que “comme les rayonnements solaires détruisent constamment la structure cristalline de la surface de glace, il faut des sources d’énergie pour la conserver”. Selon les chercheurs, cette énergie pourrait provenir de l’intérieur même de la planète avec la présence d’éléments radioactifs (le potassium-40, le thorium-232 et l’uranium-238) et de la force des marées causées par les deux satellites d’Hauméa : Hi’iaka et Namaka.Le 13 mai 2011 à 18:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Invisible magnetic sensors measure magnetic fields without disturbing them

first_img Citation: Invisible magnetic sensors measure magnetic fields without disturbing them (2018, April 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-invisible-magnetic-sensors-fields-disturbing.html Currently, most of the magnetic sensors used in today’s computers, airplanes, cars, and other systems distort the magnetic fields that they are measuring. These distortions can cause major problems for some applications, in particular biomedical techniques, that require highly accurate measurements, and can also cause cross-talk in sensor arrays.

Magnetic invisibility cloak shields magnets from magnetic fields Simulation of a spherical shell that cancels the distortions caused by a ferromagnetic sphere, making the sphere invisible (magnetically undetectable) from the outside. Credit: Mach-Batlle et al. ©2018 American Institute of Physics Explore furthercenter_img More information: Rosa Mach-Batlle, Carles Navau, and Alvaro Sanchez. “Invisible magnetic sensors.” Applied Physics Letters. DOI: 10.1063/1.5023565 In a new study, researchers have designed “invisible” magnetic sensors—sensors that are magnetically invisible so that they can still detect but do not distort the surrounding magnetic fields. The researchers, Rosa Mach-Batlle, Carles Navau, and Alvaro Sanchez at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, have published a paper on the invisible magnetic sensors in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters.”This is the first proposal to render a magnetic sensor invisible,” Mach-Batlle told Phys.org. “The invisibility can even be made exact in some cases, something never achieved before, to our knowledge.”Many magnetic sensors are made of ferromagnetic materials, which have the advantage of enhanced sensor detectability compared to other materials. However, the downside of ferromagnetic materials is that they attract magnetic fields, causing distortions in the same magnetic fields that the sensors are detecting. The challenging part of making invisible magnetic sensors is to simultaneously cancel these distortions while still allowing the sensors to detect the magnetic fields. Previously, researchers have designed magnetic cloaks for cloaking magnetic objects that make it impossible to magnetically detect them from the outside. However, these cloaks work both ways, so that the cloaked magnetic objects are completely isolated from and unable to detect any external magnetic fields. So a cloaked sensor could no longer function as a sensor.In the new study, the researchers have proposed a method for making a sensor magnetically invisible while maintaining its ability to sense. Their strategy uses a spherical magnetic shell that cancels out the leading term of the distortion that the sensor creates in response to external magnetic fields. The shell is also designed with tiny “air gaps” that allow a fraction of the external magnetic field to arrive at the sensor. Theoretically, the invisibility can be made perfect under certain conditions—specifically, when the sensor is spherical and the magnetic field is uniform.According to the researchers’ model, the proposed spherical shell must be made of a material with certain properties (in particular, a precise diamagnetic permeability) that do not exist in nature. Nevertheless, the researchers expect that these properties can be emulated with metamaterials made of high-temperature superconductors. In the future, the researchers plan to further explore these possibilities as well as variations on magnetic cloaking.”We are developing ideas such as exploring cloaking properties for AC fields or incorporating the intriguing concept of negative static permeability for creating novel shapes of magnetic fields,” Sanchez said.

This Is Your Brain on Mixed Martial Arts

first_img(Credit: Shutterstock)Michael Bisping has fought professionally in mixed martial arts since 2004. Last year, the journeyman won his first title. He knocked out Luke Rockhold in the first round to win the middleweight belt in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC, the most popular of several MMA organizations.On Nov. 4 of this year, at age 38, Bisping defended his title for a second time. His opponent was the Canadian Georges St. Pierre, a former UFC champ. The fight, held in New York’s Madison Square Garden, was close until the third round, when a series of blows knocked Bisping to the canvas. Pierre pounced on the fallen fighter and applied a rear-naked choke, cutting off oxygen to Bisping’s brain. His body went limp.On Nov. 25, within weeks of going limp, Bisping was in the octagon again. This time 7,000 miles away in Shanghai, China. He had volunteered to fight a young up-and-comer after the original opponent, Anderson Silva, was pulled from the card following a failed drug test. It was no contest. Bisping got knocked out in the first round.Three weeks. Two brutal fights.These days, with more science available on brain injuries in sports (especially CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy), the National Football League, National Hockey League and other organizations are doing more to protect athletes. Executives are making rules changes, establishing more stringent health checkups, and some groups have introduced improved headgear.The most well-known combat sport organization, the National Boxing Association, is no angel; allegations of corruption have plagued it for decades, and it’s not known for putting a fighter’s health first. Still, it’s hard to imagine one of its former and high-profile champions being allowed to fight three weeks after a violent loss, as Bisping did in the UFC.But this is mixed martial arts, a 25-year-old combat sport that has become a multi-billion-dollar industry — but still has its share of growing pains.A comprehensive review published this month in the journal Trauma suggests that MMA organizations are lax when it comes to monitoring the health of its fighters. And because the organizations don’t consistently track injuries to the combatants, the rate and risk of injuries remain largely unknown, the reviewers say.This is all the more concerning because many adolescents and teenagers are taking up the sport without fully knowing the long-term cognitive risks.Lots of Head BlowsThe researchers for the Trauma report looked at 18 studies involving 7,587 fighters from 1990 to 2016. Some of the studies indicated that nearly half of MMA fights ended due to head blows, though other studies offered a lower percentage, one putting it at 28 percent. Another study found only 13 percent of fighters sought or were given medical attention for concussive symptoms from blows delivered either in training or during matches. And more than half of those fighters returned to training within two days.Of the limited neurological tests done on fighters, the results are sobering.“Five studies measured degenerative neuroanatomical and cognitive changes associated with repetitive blunt head trauma sustained in combat sports,” the reviewers say. “Participants were found to have microstructural brain damage when compared to controls in all five studies. Additionally, one set of studies found fighters with more lifetime bouts tended to have lower cognitive test scores, processing speed, and increased signs of motor impulsiveness.”MMA health studies also tend to lack a clear definition of a concussion. Several studies equated a knockout to a concussion, and one used the Military Acute Concussion Evaluation as its concussion definition, the reviewers say.None of the studies outlined a head injury protocol, or return-to-activity guidelines. There were also no discussions of minimizing traumatic brain injuries, such as by restricting blows to the head, introducing mandatory head protection or developing better padded gloves.Joel Lockwood, an emergency physician at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada, and a co-author of the review, said in a news release that MMA fighters likely face long-term neurological consequences from repetitive head injuries. The danger “is unlikely to change without increased medical oversight and regulation, including accurate and consistent head injury assessment and diagnosis by trained medical professionals.”Shanghai AmnesiaMMA podcasts, typically hosted by former MMA male fighters, are full of bluster, expletives and the worship of toughness. During one in November, UFC light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier called Bisping’s quick return to the octagon “a gangsta move” — a show of toughness and grit.Yet studies show that, as fighters age into their 30s, they can’t take punches like they used to; repeated punches over years degrade the brain’s ability to recover. A 2012 report found that UFC fighters between the ages of 36 and 40 were getting knocked out more often than fighters in younger age groups. It’s also common knowledge that, after taking a pounding in the ring or octagon, a fighter needs time off to mentally and physically recuperate.And MMA fighters do take a pounding. A 2014 study concluded that rates of getting knocked out or having a referee stop a fight (TKO) are higher in MMA than in any other combat sport. And over the last decade, three fighters have died as a result of injuries in the octagon, two from head blows, according to the Trauma review.Some MMA analysts have shown awareness about the damage inflicted. Former UFC fighter Brendan Shaub, who hosts a podcast, expressed concern for Bisping during a show in November in the run-up to the Shanghai fight. “What I don’t like about it is that it’s 21 days since Michael Bisping just got choked out, KO’d – let’s be honest, what put him on the ground was a left hook.”Even so, after Bisping was knocked out within minutes, no podcaster I heard talked honestly about the sport’s health realities. Dana White, the face of the UFC, has not spoken publicly about the issues surrounding the Bisping fight. The talk in MMA circles has moved on to the next card, as though the contest in Shanghai never happened.last_img read more

LONDON (AP) – A British court has ordered self-exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky to pay 35 million pounds ($56 million) in legal costs to fellow Russian Roman Abramovich after losing a lawsuit against him.Berezovsky waged a multimillion-dollar legal battle against Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea Football Club, claiming that he was cheated out of his stakes in the oil group Sibneft.Berezovsky, a former Kremlin power broker who sought political asylum in Britain in the early 2000s, argued that Abramovich blackmailed him into selling the stakes vastly beneath their true worth after he fell out with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Forecast Expects Housing Market Growth to Slow Down for the Rest of

first_img July 3, 2015 622 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Forecast Expects Housing Market Growth to Slow Down for the Rest of 2015 Sharecenter_img Clear Capital Non-Growth Housing Market Real Estate Asset Valuation 2015-07-03 Staff Writer Consumers grow uneasy as the spring season comes to a close and recent gains in the housing market begin to decline. Clear Capital, Inc., a provider of data and solutions for real estate asset valuation and collateral risk assessment, recently released its Home Data Index (HDI) Market Report with data through June 2015 that shows that 2015 will be a non-growth year.In January, the company forecasted total national housing market growth for 2015 to reach 1.3 percent, more than five percent lower than growth for 2014 at 6.7 percent. The adjusted forecast presumes that year-end national growth will come in at 2.6 percent, falling within the projected range of 1 percent to 3 percent.“With a first full look of the spring buying season and six-month update to the forecast, our data through June confirms our initial projection that 2015 would be a non-growth year,” said Alex Villacorta, Ph.D., VP of research and analytics at Clear Capital. “Here we are six months later, and there is very little evidence to change our view that the year will end up with price growth coming in just around the rate of inflation.”The report found that while San Francisco’s and San Jose’s year-end growth rates are expected to remain positive, at 3.4 percent and 3.2 percent, growth for both regions are projected to decline into the negatives at -0.2 percent and -0.4 percent through the second half of 2015. Clear Capital added that this drop raises concern among consumers after the summer buying season and experiencing two years of consecutive, yet unsustainable, gains.“In our June report, we went on record with concern of bubble markets across the U.S. Now San Jose is starting to go the way of San Francisco, at peak levels and now leveling off,” Villacorta said. “Both San Francisco and San Jose have been red hot markets, supported in large part by strong job growth. The latest numbers reveal, however, that both markets have reached their apex in the most recent upward price swing and are projected to take a slight dip into negative territory through the second half of 2015, by -0.2 percent and -0.4 percent. While both markets are projected to have total 2015 yearly growth rates of around 3 percent, entering winter 2015-2016 on the down side is of great concern. What started as ‘red hot’ at the start of 2014 may end as ‘in the red’ come 2016.”Regionally, growth across all regions remains flat, Clear Capital noted. The Midwest saw an increase in quarterly growth, from 0.1 percent to 0.3 percent. The West continues to be the strongest in terms of quarterly price grow at 1 percent and is expected to end 2015 with a 3.3 percent growth rate, reducing disparity between the East and West. Meanwhile, growth in the East is forecasted to come to a halt for the rest of 2015 at 0.1 percent, but it is also projected to end the year at 1 percent.On a national level, the growth levels are about the same, the company says. Data through June looks similar to data through May 2015, with no change in quarterly growth at 0.6 percent and a slight drop in yearly growth from 5.3 percent to 5.2 percent. If spring and summer seasons actually reflect the peak of the housing demand cycle, 0.6 percent quarterly growth likely to come to pass as for how the rest of the year will turn out.Click here to view Clear Capital’s Home Data Index. last_img read more

MPs postpone vote on realtors regulations

first_imgTHE House plenum on Friday overwhelmingly voted to postpone voting on a legislative proposal regulating the profession of realtors.Among other things, the proposal would introduce the profession of assistant realtor.Greens’ leader Yiorgos Perdikis and Akel MP Yiorgos Georgiou opposed the motion to postpone for 15 days, requested by Solidarity in order to discuss and incorporate amendments to the proposal. The motion was passed by a 48 to 3 majority.House Interior committee chair and proposal sponsor Eleni Mavrou said that, while she does not object to the request to postpone, this was the third or fourth such request granted.Noting that adequate time for discussion had already been allowed, Mavrou claimed various amendments essentially revolved around differently-phrased aspects of the same issue.“The continuous postponements embarrass parliament and leave the impression that we are giving in to pressure from financial interests,” she said.Perdikis diagnosed an attempt to stall the reform and said the repeated delays were an insult to parliament.Citing “people who have been waiting for months and years for us to legitimise their profession”, Akel’s Georgiou said the “public’s patience is being tested”.Meanwhile, the House plenum also postponed a vote on a government bill regulating the creation and operation of clubs and foundations.The motion to postpone was put forth by Diko MP Panicos Leonidou, citing the violence between football hooligans on Tuesday night.“Parliament must consider the introduction of clauses relating to the oversight body, and introduce administrative penalties for illegal items found inside clubs, including the suspension of their operation,” he said.Once more, Mavrou dissented, arguing that there is nothing to discuss or introduce, since Leonidou described offences that fall under the criminal code.She added that the bill has been at the House since 2015, and that consultation over it started in 2012.The Greens’ deputy Charalambos Theopemptou said the bill has been discussed exhaustively and that its provisions also impact non-governmental organisations, which eagerly await the new legislative framework.You May LikeSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are Leading The Pack.

Pvt Ltd More Related NewsPublished: June 25 2014 12:06 am FYUP has failed to understand the philosophy behind the FC as practised in US universities Related News By Apoorvanand This is regarding The Indian Express editorial on the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) controversy (‘Four-year dead end’ June 23) While it is difficult to disagree with its condemnation of the University Grants Commission’s (UGC’s) move on the FYUP it is disappointing to read it hailing the FYUP as a transformatory educational exercise It seems the IE team has not taken the trouble to go through the content of the programme Nor has it examined its basic structure It is so illogical disjointed shabby and trivialising in its approach that to call it comparable in any manner to the US’s undergraduate programmes is nothing less than bizarre The UGC has been unprincipled in its response all along Last year weeks before the initiation of the FYUP and well ahead of admissions to it we appealed to the ministry of human resource development and the UGC to intervene in accordance with its act We were told that the UGC had no role to play as the university was an autonomous body and had complete freedom to decide upon its course structure and duration One needs to point out that it is the duty of the UGC to ensure that the degrees offered by different universities are comparable in quality Why were we opposed to it For several reasons One the basic structure was never discussed at the faculty level and processes were violated Two the structure in itself is academically flawed It proposes three types of certificates: diploma bachelor and bachelor (honours) While logically you should have three different curriculum designs to address the needs of the respective programmes the FYUP sought to do it through a single curriculum which is just not possible Effectively the diploma and simple bachelor degree are nothing but fractured pieces of the honours programme The foundation courses (FC) being celebrated as an innovation are so trivial and thoughtless that students feel humiliated at being asked to study them Gautam Bhan has written a long critique of them in the Economic and Political Weekly also available on Kafila It makes it very clear that the FYUP has failed to understand the philosophy behind the FC as practised in US universities No self-respecting university that takes academics seriously would agree to a change of this nature and scale in barely two months without even allowing the teaching community to participate in it Apart from this we expect a newspaper like the IE to examine the internal life of Delhi University closely For the last three and half years we have been living in emergency-like conditions Threats abuses victimisation (deduction of salary for participation in demonstrations or protests denial of promotion for being critical of the FYUP) crass regionalism casteism corruption and bribing of students by inflating their grades are some of the tactics The only bookshop on campus has been shuttered We are not given permission to hold meetings or seminars Mediocrity rules DU has been so badly damaged that it requires a real visionary and healer to rescue it from its present state The writer is a professor of Hindi at the University of Delhi For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt’s not surprising that that the BJP has chosen to brazen out the serious charges of impropriety and corruption both at the Centre and in the states rather than subjecting itself to the test of high standards that it swore by because it’s indeed a party with a difference There are no two ways about the fact that the Congress-led UPA was steeped in corruption and impropriety However what was encouraging was that the party didn’t resist public pressure for too long or deflect attention through mealy-mouthed spokespersons or malicious cyber squads Every time they came under attack the UPA ministers were asked to resign and prove their innocence Not that the Congress didn’t try to save them but the party didn’t brazen it out Every single person who was alleged of corruption or impropriety during the UPA ultimately resigned PTI image Compare it with the BJP the party with a difference that promised good governance and zero-tolerance to corruption Despite clear evidence of misuse of office explicit conflict of interest and even pecuniary benefits the party chose to justify and protect Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje in Lalit-gate No amount of proof was good enough for the BJP to concede political misdemeanour because the party had decided not to give in to public scrutiny Citing legalese the party tried to pull the wool over the eyes of its opponents and the media Its stand was no different on the allegations against Maharashtra minister Pankaja Munde (corruption) Union minister Smriti Irani (fake education claims) and Maharashtra chief minister DevendraFadnavisand Union minister Kiren Rijju (abuse of power) And the most shocking was the Vyapam scam which has metamorphosed into a killer epidemic under Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Until Tuesday the party was not even open toexternal scrutiny even as people connected with the scamdied like flies The same brazenness of mis-governance was also seen in the appointments of Sangh ideologues with dubious credentials to key public institutions the latest being a small-time actor with a laughable portfolio heading the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune FTII students as well as the film fraternity across the country felt slighted outraged and are up in arms but the party doesn’t care The UPA took a decade to decay but the BJP is showing signs of a deeper malaise in its first year itself However it doesn’t want a diagnosis and treatment It’s not benign denial but an undemocratic defiance This brazenness is what makes the BJP different from the Congress not its commitment to transparency and corruption-free governance In an interview with Times of India on Wednesday noted film-maker Anand Patwardhan summarises it lucidly: “This is not Congress rule where despite massive corruption the government was somewhat vulnerable to public pressure The Sangh Parivar is made of different mettle As you can gauge from the Raje and Swaraj episodes they have decided to brazen out anything and everything no matter what the consequences” This is exactly what Home Minister Rajanth Singh’s early defiance meant when he said"our ministers do not have to resign This is not their (Congress’) government This is NDA government" Patwardhan’s opinion is bang on Compared to the present government when there was pressure on the Congress to sack its ministers Shashi Tharoor and Ashwini Kumar the party did resist first but ultimately gave up The Congress could have easily brazened it out by citing that there was absolutely nothing against them on record let alone any charge of corruption Tharoor didn’t make money on the IPL or influence the BCCI to get Kochi the franchise Sunanda Puskhar who apparently had sweat equity on the Kochi team was not his wife then The charge against Kumar was that he tried to influence the CBI as the law minister But in the end they both resigned for nothing more than alleged impropriety because that’s what the public and media wanted Going by that yardstick all the BJP ministers who are on the dock should have gone by now But they wont because the BJP and the Sangh Parivar as Patwardhan says is made of different mettle Going by its record of just one year in office it’s really hard to fathom what exactly is the BJP’s self-proclaimed high standard for impropriety and transparency If there was no conflict of interest in the case of Raje and Swaraj what exactly is BJP’s definition or standard for the term In retrospect how do its leaders justify their demand for the resignation of Tharoor and Kumar How does the BJP justify good governance if its ministers hold up flights of state run airlines How does it justify transparency if it’s unwilling to furnish details for RTI queries on Lalit-gate and resist external investigations into deadly scams such as Vyapam How does it justify good governance if it keeps posting ineligible lightweights and people who make false claims on their education to critical jobs Accountability transparency and fairness are essential principles of good governance and these terms are well understood across the

and fall (Image for representation Source: AP) Related News Scientists have for the first time developed a forecasting model to accurately predict the timing and intensity of West Nile Virus (WNV) outbreaks Much like weather forecasting these WNV forecasts use a computer model to generate multiple simulations that mimic the behaviour of an outbreak and are knit together to generate an overall prediction Watch all our videos from Express Technology Since 2012 scientists at Columbia University in the US have used similar methods to create weekly forecasts for seasonal flu published online; and following the 2014-2015 outbreak an analysis of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa In North America where WNV is endemic the virus is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes with outbreaks happening in the summer and fallMost of those infected have no symptoms but about one in five will develop a fever with other symptoms Less than one per cent develops a serious sometimes fatal neurologic illness “There is a great deal of variation in outbreak intensity and duration year to year” said Nicholas B DeFelice from Columbia’s Mailman School “Absent a computer model it’s difficult to predict the impact of an outbreak even once the outbreak is underway and thus it is important that robust quantitative decision tools are developed to help guide control efforts” said DeFelice In the new study researchers developed the WNV forecasting model drawing on field collection data documenting mosquito infection rates and reported human cases and accounting for transmission between mosquitoes and birds and spillover to humans They used the model to create retrospective forecasts for WNV outbreaks in Suffolk County Long Island for 2001-2014 This model system accurately forecast mosquito infection rates prior to the week of mosquito peak infection and accurately predicted the seasonal total number of human WNV cases up to nine weeks prior to the last reported case The researchers also generated forecasts in Cook County Illinois during 2007-2014 reporting similar results to those in Suffolk County Also Read:Anti-science culture is growing need to engage and educate say Nobel Laureates They said the finding suggests that the forecast model will be effective in diverse settings even those with different transmission dynamics As more years of data become available they hope to further refine their method potentially incorporating environmental variables including temperature They also are working to implement a real-time forecast system “Reliable West Nile Virus forecasts would give public health officials a leg up on efforts to control mosquito populations and reduce human West Nile Virus cases and could even help them refine these efforts” said Jeffrey
