It’s getting even tighter at the top

first_imgThe Heineken Cup has always been fiercely contested but the evidence is there after a record breaking opening round to the 16th campaign to suggest the tournament is getting tighter and tighter.Seven of the 12 Round 1 games ended within the seven point margin needed for a losing bonus point – a record high for the competition since bonus points were first introduced in the 2003/04 season.In the previous 42 Pool rounds over the last seven seasons the most losing bonus points secured in a round were six on four occasions (Rd2 09/10; Rds 4 & 6 08/09; Rd 3 04/05). But not only were there a record seven matches that saw the losers taking something out of the game, but the points difference between the teams in those matches was a mere 24. Two games were won by a single point and another by two.Across the 12 games over the opening weekend there was only a points difference of 96 between the winning and losing teams, an average gap of only eight points per match. The losing bonus points in Round 1 were registered in the following matches:Northampton Saints 18-14 Castres Olympique; Toulon 19-14 Ospreys; Benetton Treviso 29-34 Leicester Tigers; Cardiff Blues 18-17 Edinburgh; London Irish 23-17 Munster Bath 11-12 Biarritz Olympique and Toulouse 18-16 London Wasps. In addition, Perpignan picked up a try bonus in their 43-34 defeat at the Scarlets.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

South Africa vs New Zealand: An epic rivalry

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Epic rivalry: New Zealand and South African players battle during The Castle Lager Rugby Championship 2015. Photo: Getty Images New Zealand versus South Africa is one of the biggest rivalries in rugby. We delve back in the annals of time for some background on the upcoming RWC semi By Adam HathawayEngland and Wales have got history, England and most sides in the world have got history, in fact, but when it comes to rugby rivalry, nothing is tastier than South Africa against New Zealand. South African sides are measured by success in World Cups and success against the All Blacks.Against all Test nations New Zealand have a win percentage of just over 78 but against the Springboks that dips to just 60 per cent. The men in green are not scared the Kiwis and have beaten them on more occasions than any other team.If the New Zealanders expect to be waved through in the second half like they were in Cardiff by the disappointing French last weekend they have got another thing coming.To the Boks – World Cup semi-final, or no World Cup semi-final – this matters. Big time. This lot have got history.Preparing for battle: South Africa’s Morne Steyn and Willem Alberts attend a team training session Hence the debate of who was the greatest South African team of all time that still rages. The World Cup-winning teams of 1995 and 2007 or the 2009 vintage, which beat the British & Irish Lions and held every trophy they could possibly get their hands on. All have their supporters but some Springbok fans go all misty-eyed when the names of the 1937 Boks, captained by Flip Nel, the 1949 team, led by Felix ‘du Plessis and the 1976 team skippered by Morne du Plessis, come up in conversation and the common thread is they all beat New Zealand.That is how much the fixture means to South Africans.Leading by example: Former South Africa Captain Morne Du Plessis Nick Mallett’s squad that won 17 Tests on the spin in 1997 and 1998 – including home and away wins over the Kiwis – also gets a mention.But the 1937 side that contained legendary names such as Danie Craven, Boy Louw, Ebbo Bastard and Gerry Brand is always in the frame. In a highly unscientific poll of, mostly South African, journalists earlier this year, the 1995 team got the most votes but the 1937 side came a close second and it was all because they beat the All Blacks.In 1949 South Africa overcame New Zealand 4-0 at home and in 1976 they won the series, also at home, 3-1.Best Bok team ever?: Players from the RWC winning team of 1995 pose for a team picture on the 20th anniversary of their win over the All BlacksIn 1937 the Boks actually travelled to New Zealand and won the series 2-1, after beating Australia 2-0 on the way. They lost the first Test in Wellington, and won the second and third games in Christchurch and Auckland to become the first, and last, South African team to go to the home of the All Blacks and win a series. On the trip they won 27 out of 29 matches with their only reverses coming against New South Wales and in the first All Black Test. That was a proper tour.Nel, a prop, was 35 by then and knew he had nothing left in the game to achieve to he announced his retirement by throwing his boots into the sea from the boat on the way home.Influential figure: SA medical doctor, anti-apartheid campaigner and player Louis Babrow In that team Craven rated Brand as the best full-back he had ever seen. The centre Louis Babrow who scored twice in the final Test, was a doctor and anti-apartheid campaigner who would win a Military Cross El Alamein and Craven himself would go on to become South Africa’s most influential rugby figure. Teams in Pretoria still compete for the Lucas Strachan Shield, named after the Transvaal flanker on that trip, there is an Ebbo Bastard Trophy in Natal and Louw refereed the first Currie Cup final in 1939. Harry Martin, a prop, became Chief of Defence Staff in South Africa and the flanker Flappie Lochner was the manager of the Boks on their 1971 trip to Australia which sparked a host of anti-apartheid demonstrations. These blokes were all significant figures and they could play a bit too.On Saturday, the All Blacks stand in the way of South Africa and a place in a third World Cup final. If the 2015 Boks get through two matches, they will be spoken of in the same terms as Nel’s mob and the fact they would have beaten New Zealand on the way would make it all the sweeter.last_img read more

Instead of the more usual means of planning a city horizontally, we have created neighbourhoods in the sky: a vertical city where each zone has its own distinct identity.”Save this picture!© Darren SohVertical City & Home The design concept of The Scotts Tower is that of a vertical city incorporating a variety of residence types and scales. The tower is divided into four different residential clusters, denoted as ‘neighbourhoods’. Within each of these neighbourhoods, individual identity is given to each unit by means of type, scale, distribution and articulation of outdoor space and the possibility for personalisation of the interior layout. Terraces unique to each unit type further enhance the personalised feel.Save this picture!Analysis diagramBen van Berkel: “The balconies, combined with the zoning of the individually framed neighbourhoods, in The Scotts Tower create different scales of detail in the structure; both intricate, smaller details and larger gestural details. In The Scotts Tower the balconies form part of the interior furniture.”Save this picture!© Darren SohFrameThe nearby green area to the West of the tower is extended into The Scotts Tower site initially by means of a ground level landscape concept designed by Sitetectonix.

Growth, age structure and environmental history in the cephalopod Martialia hyadesi (Teuthoidea: Ommastrephidae) at the Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone and on the Patagonian Shelf Edge

first_imgMartialia hyadesi were collected from fishing vessels at the Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone (APFZ) and the Patagonian Shelf Edge (PASE) during the 1989 austral autumn and winter. Squid were measured, weighed, assigned a maturity stage and the paired statoliths were removed. Statolith sections revealed concentric growth rings using light and scanning electron microscopy. Counts of these putative daily micro-growth increments were made directly and by an estimating procedure. Energy dispersive (ED) and wavelength dispersive (WD) x-ray analyses of Sr and Ca content were made on subsamples of statolith sections. Estimated increment counts, which were generally higher than direct counts, were adopted for routine application. Back calculated hatching dates showed that a single cohort, with a relatively narrow size range, was sampled in each geographical area. Back calculations suggested that M. hyadesi at the APFZ had hatched in the austral winter and those at the PASE had hatched in the spring. At the PASE, growth rate was estimated to be some 30% higher than at the APFZ and PASE squid were more mature at a given age. The hypothesis that the Sr:Ca ratio along the growth axis of the statolith contains information on thermal history was examined. Sr:Ca ratios in the statolith fell in the range 0.009–0.017 and varied systematically but this variation did not apparently relate to season and ratios were not significantly different between geographical areas. A consistent feature was a relatively low Sr:Ca ratio at the time of hatching. According to the Sr:Ca thermometer hypothesis this is consistent with spawning in relatively warm water but it could equally be due to depositional differences during early statolith growth. The Sr:Ca thermometer hypothesis could neither be confirmed nor rejected by the data but there is evidence that strontium varies systematically with age in the squid statolith.last_img read more

USS Kearsarge Celebrates Diversity, Inclusion within Asian-Pacific Heritage Month

first_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: Asian-Pacific View post tag: USS May 23, 2012 Sailors aboard multipurpose amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3) held an Asian-Pacific Heritage Month observance on the Mess Decks May 20.The observance recognized the contributions Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have made to the United States and to the Navy.The theme this year is “Striving for excellence in leadership, diversity and inclusion.”Sailors recited poems, songs and shared some personal stories about their Asian-Pacific heritage.One of the guest speakers, Senior Chief Aviation Electronics Technician Lilia Blair expressed the challenges of being not only Asian but also female in the Navy.“Growing up was hard due to the fact that I was an Asian-Pacific female,” said Blair. “The thing that kept me going was that I wanted to pursue the dream of following in my father’s footsteps.” Blair’s father retired from the Navy as a master chief in the Navy after serving 30 years.Ensign Crystal Gonzalez shared some stories of her childhood. “I would get picked on by other kids because of the way my hair and eyes looked,” Gonzalez said. She emphasized that every Sailor should embrace their diversity. “I want every Sailor to be proud of who [they] are…,” she said.Capt. Dorian F. Jones, commanding officer of Kearsarge, concluded the ceremony by sharing examples of how Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders impact the Navy today.“Asians and Pacific Islanders have served in the military since World War I. Their patriotism runs deep among the culture,” Jones said.According to the Defense Department’s Equal Opportunity Office, there are currently more than 284,000 Asian and Pacific Islander military veterans. In the Navy alone, there are more than 20,000 Asian and Pacific Islanders that make up the total naval force. Included are nine admirals and 191 master chief petty officers.“The ideas and the diversity of thoughts of our people have always strengthened our nation and our Navy. Diversity keeps us strong and empowers our ability to defend freedoms not only here on the homefront, but all over the world,” Jones said. “Diversity allows us to do this without prejudice of ethnicity or cultural background and that is why we remain the most powerful fighting force in the world.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff , May 23, 2012 View post tag: Kearsarge View post tag: celebrates View post tag: Heritage Share this article View post tag: Navycenter_img View post tag: Diversity View post tag: month Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Kearsarge Celebrates Diversity, Inclusion within Asian-Pacific Heritage Month View post tag: Inclusion View post tag: within Training & Education USS Kearsarge Celebrates Diversity, Inclusion within Asian-Pacific Heritage Month View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

Gas Pains: O.C. Now a One Station Town

first_imgBy Tim KellyImagine an Ocean City with tens of thousands of summer visitors, most of whom arrive by car or truck, and just one gasoline station.When the summer of 2019 rolls around, you won’t have to imagine it.A perfect storm of real estate deals, building demolitions and the unintended consequences of much-needed city improvements has left Ocean City with no gas stations on the 9th Street corridor, and just one remaining in town, at 34th Street and West Avenue.“I think there will be real issues to deal with this summer because of it,” said Don Weisenthal, whose auto repair shop – a staple in town for 50 years – will vanish from its familiar location at 9th and West when his lease expires on March 31.“Saturdays, the changeover days for rentals in town, are going to be challenging,” Wiesenthal continued. “Summer Saturdays were always a zoo here, even when there were other gas stations on this street. Tire issues, battery issues, and that’s just the mechanical side of it. When you also consider the gas sales part of it, you’ve got a problem.” Mark O’Brien pumps gas at the Wawa station in Somers Point.Of course, there is plenty of gas available 24/7 at the “Super Wawa” at the foot of the 9th Street causeway on the Somers Point side, and numerous other filling stations on the mainland.“We’ve seen a big increase in customers coming from Ocean City,” said Mark O’Brien, of Egg Harbor Township, a Wawa employee. “I’ve been hearing from a lot of people who used to buy gas on the other side.”The windfall apparently isn’t enough for Wawa.  On Wednesday, the price for a gallon of regular was $2.35 at the main gateway into Ocean City. The same gasoline was priced $2.25 at the Wawa in the Marmora section of Upper Township near the 34th Street bridge, a dime cheaper per gallon.  “It’s the downtown Ocean City surcharge,” said Craig Mowers, of Tuckahoe, who commutes to his jobs in Ocean City and shops for the best price on gas. “Most people probably don’t realize it.” A call to Wawa’s corporate public relations office on Tuesday seeking comment was not returned. Darla Nolan, shown pumping gas for Jim Welch of Trenton on Tuesday, expects long lines at the pumps of the Sunoco station on 34th Street, Ocean City’s last remaining gas station.Darla Nolan, an employee at the 34th Street Sunoco in Ocean City, said management there noticed a spike in business since the closures on 9th Street.  “I’m seeing a lot of familiar faces here,” said Nolan, who formerly pumped gas at the recently closed Sunoco sister station. “A lot of people are upset they have to drive up here for gas.”Nolan predicted long lines at the station during the summer months, which she said could create worse gridlock and result in cars and trucks with idling engines backed up in front of the homes to the north of the station on West Avenue. The seeds for the current situation were unintentionally planted back in 2015, when the city addressed the problem of three blighted former gas stations – an Exxon on the in-bound side of 9th Street and a BP and Getty on the westbound lanes out of town.The rusted, crumbling properties stood in stark contrast to Ocean City’s pristine beaches, family-oriented Boardwalk, restaurants and many other attractions. They also made a bad first impression. “Abandoned properties are not what we want people to see when they first enter Ocean City,” Mayor Jay Gillian told OCNJDaily.com at the time.A lush green park has replaced the former blighted Getty and BP gas stations on the Ninth Street corridor at Bay Avenue.The city earmarked over $1 million from its budget to clean up the area and made efforts to purchase the stations. Ultimately, Ocean City partnered with Cape May County to create a landscaped mini-park where the BP and Getty stations had been.The county purchased the old Getty property for $650,000 through an open space grant and leased it back to the city for $1 per year. The former BP station was purchased in 2016 by the city for $475,000. An earlier county open space grant reimbursed the city for the cost of the old BP site.  Prior to that, the old Exxon site on the in-bound side of 9th Street was purchased by the Keller Williams real estate firm, which has proposed building a new office complex on the property.  The visual improvement of swapping three abandoned and decrepit former gas stations for green space and a proposed commercial building speaks for itself, as do the environmental benefits of removing underground gas tanks from a barrier island.However, the 9th Street dynamic took a new turn recently.  Demolition work nears completion Wednesday on the old 9th Street Sunoco, reportedly the site of a new bank.A financial concern said to represent a major banking institution purchased lots housing Wiesenthal’s shop and its attached, but separately leased and operated gas station, and a Sunoco station next door at 201 East 9th Street. On Wednesday, work crews were wrapping up the demolition of the pumps and other vestiges of the old fuel station.Both properties stopped selling gas at the tail end of 2018, leaving the 34th Street Sunoco as the only game in town for those wanting or needing a fill-up.  Some consider that disturbing, considering Ocean City’s year-round population of roughly 12,000 people swells up to 150,000 between Memorial Day and Labor Day.“There’s been a gas station on this corner dating back to 1935,” said Wiesenthal. “I wish we could continue here.”A sign at Wiesenthal’s apologizes for the end of fuel sales and announces the repair shop is still open.City Council President Peter Madden said he was not concerned about the town’s sudden dearth of places to fill up.“I’m OK with it. People will adapt to the situation. Most of our visitors come from the Philadelphia metropolitan area and they are quite used to driving at least two and a half miles to buy gas,” Madden said, referencing the distance between Ocean City and the gasoline-buying options on the Somers Point side of the causeway.“At the end of the day, economics and supply and demand determine how things like this work out,” Madden remarked. “If the businesses were profitable enough to justify being in that location, they would continue on as gas stations and a repair shop.”From an environmental standpoint, some have argued the benefits of removing gas stations and underground tanks from an ecologically fragile island community far outweigh the minor inconvenience of driving to Somers Point or Marmora for gas. A message seeking comment on this point of view was left with a spokesperson of the Jersey Shore chapter of the environmental group Surfrider Foundation, but was not immediately returned Wednesday night. Don Wiesenthal’s family has operated its vehicle repair business at 9th and West for 50 years. Wiesenthal, meanwhile, is attempting to keep his repair shop busy while he searches for a new location. A large sign atop the canopy of the now-shuttered gas station apologized that there were no fuel sales and announced the repair shop is still open for business.“I want to stay in Ocean City, and I’m still trying to find a place to relocate to,” Wiesenthal said. “There’s really nothing available right now.”He noted that prospects to find a replacement location on the island are dim.As an alternative, he was looking for possible locations in Marmora, where he lives, and where he hopes a new shop would be close enough to keep his longtime regular Ocean City customers. But that wouldn’t help the guy driving on fumes late at night in remote sections of town, he said.“It’s getting to the point where I would recommend to people that they join AAA,” Wiesenthal said. “Otherwise, they are running the risk they could get stuck.” A work crew dismantles the former Sunoco station at 201 E. 9th Street on Tuesday.last_img read more

After holding down the low end with the Allman Brothers Band for nearly two decades, the consummate bass player now carries the torch for the latest incarnation of another American rock institution. With all these hours under his belt, it’s easy to forgive the man when he decides to take a break. And it’s a whole lot easier when he invites legendary The Meters bassist George Porter Jr. to fill in for him.That’s what happened last night when Dead & Co made their long-awaited New Orleans debut at the Smoothie King Center. Three months after John Mayer’s pesky appendix forced the band to cancel its previously scheduled appearance at the venue, Mayer, Burbridge, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, and Jeff Chimenti finally took the Big Easy by storm—and it’s safe to say this one was worth the wait. Dead & Company roared out of the gate with a “Feel Like A Stranger” that seamlessly veered into another Bob Weir/John Perry Barlow favorite, “The Music Never Stopped”. The tune offered Mayer an early opportunity to dive into an expansive jam, and he took it without reservation (while also letting out a solid Donna Jean impression behind the mic). “The Music Never Stopped” eventually gave way to “Cold Rain and Snow”, which quickly became the night’s first singalong as the crowd was bathed in light with each chorus. After three big numbers, Dead & Company took things down a notch with a gorgeous “Peggy-O” that put Weir front and center before meandering into a “Friend of the Devil” that elicited cheers with its opening notes.After wrapping up the American Beauty staple, Burbridge quietly abdicated in preparation for the night’s most delightful surprise: a perfectly executed sit-in from hometown hero George Porter Jr. of The Meters fame. The funk pioneer and bonafide Crescent City icon provided a sturdy foundation for a spot-on rendition of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Smokestack Lightning”, even playfully growling his way through his portion of the lyrics. Porter’s magnetic playing eventually drew in Mayer, who went to toe-to-toe with the New Orleans bass master during his solo—a move the pair would repeat with the “Bertha” and “Sugaree” that followed. While that “Bertha” was a certainly a treat, the “Sugaree” that closed out the set was arguably the night’s high point. Porter may not be an expert on the Grateful Dead canon, but “Sugaree” has been in his repertoire for some time, and his confidence with the song was on full display as he led the band through the Garcia/Hunter classic. If his smile was any indication, the tune was a special moment for Porter—just as it was for the thousands of people who showered him with applause as Dead & Company headed off stage.Burbridge was back in the saddle when the band returned to open the second set with a fantastic “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire On The Mountain” combo. The beloved pairing was a great way to start things off before the group delivered what had to have been the night’s most highly-anticipated and historically-loaded offering—”Truckin’”. That history was not lost on the people of New Orleans, who are acutely aware of the story that was immortalized in the words “busted down on Bourbon Street.” In addition to inspiring some choice lyrics, the Grateful Dead’s 1970 run-in with the New Orleans Police Department caused the band to sour on the Big Easy for over a decade, scaring them away from the city during the height of their powers and leaving NOLA’s ‘heads with an unsatiated craving for Dead music that lasts to this day. Perhaps that’s why the crowd went absolutely nuts for the duration of the tune–and particularly so when the famed “busted down on Bourbon Street” lyrics came into play.“Truckin’” kept going right into a pleasant “Ship of Fools” that saw Mayer and Burbridge going back and forth behind the mic. The sublime ballad meandered into an even more pleasant “Uncle John’s Band” that set up some inspired jamming on its way to the improvisational wizardry of “Drums”. Burbridge once again joined Hart and Kreutzmann at the back of the stage, with all three of them banging away over a bassy drone until Weir, Mayer, Chimenti returned for a far out “Space” that eventually coalesced into “Stella Blue”. Mayer nailed the peaks on the Wake of the Flood ballad, and the band effortlessly switched gears as the majestic number melted into “One More Saturday Night” to wrap up the set. Burbridge belted out a glorious howl during the tune, whose appearance surprised absolutely no one considering the day of the week. Yet the howl was a harbinger of things to come, as the band came back out for a “Werewolves of London” that had the rest of the arena howling along with them.Dead & Company will continue their run of make-up shows this week with performances on Monday, February 26th in Sunrise, FL and on Tuesday, February 27th in Orlando, FL.

Oklahoma Eagle publisher James Goodwin remembers the Tulsa Race Massacre in anti-racism lecture series

first_imgCourtesy of Dory Mitros Durham Publisher of the Oklahoma Eagle and Notre Dame alum, James Goodwin speaks at the Klau Center’s weekly series “Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary.”Time at Notre DameGoodwin’s 77-page senior thesis, for what was then called the General Program and is now the Program of Liberal Studies, focused on racial disparities in employment in Tulsa.In his thesis introduction, Goodwin quoted University president emeritus Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, who said “that no American can escape taking a stand on civil rights, that no American can really disengage themselves from this problem.”“To me, his words meant the same now as they did then,” Goodwin said. “One is either a racist or an anti-racist.”In the first chapter, he wrote about a cross burning almost 40 years prior, a few days after the Tulsa Massacre. Ku Klux Klan members surrounded the cross, feeling jubilant and victorious, Goodwin said.“I went on to say that Tulsans do not relish recollection of their ignoble past,” he said. “Whites do not, perhaps because of shame. Negros do not, because of the misery they were forced to endure.”“But of a necessity, the past must be recalled. For how else can we explain the flagrant inequities between white and negro citizens, which now, and in 1957, exist in Tulsa?” Goodwin said. “Except, that they be explained by the still smothering coals of the cross burnings 40 years ago.”Advocate in the communityGoodwin recalled his own family’s experiences during the massacre.“In 1921, my father never made it to his high-school prom. It was scheduled the same night of the massacre,” Goodwin said. “And when the massacre occurred, he and his father and mother and four siblings survived the massacre.”But The Tulsa Star, the city’s first Black-owned newspaper, did not survive.Goodwin’s paternal grandfather, who he referred to as Papa, had become the business manager for The Star earlier that year. Almost 15 years later, Goodwin’s own father purchased the Oklahoma Eagle, Goodwin said.By the time Goodwin’s paternal grandparents had moved to Oklahoma, “according to the Oklahoma Historical Society, our state territory suffered through six massacres,” Goodwin said. “Black newspapers in Oklahoma informed Black people, chronicling these atrocities.”When introducing Goodwin, Mitros Durham also mentioned his work as an attorney. She said Goodwin had successfully defended a Black speaker in a 1969 First Amendment case that reached the Supreme Court and had served as co-counsel in a 2003 suit that sought reparations for victims of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre.“Although I’m an advocate of the law, I’ve also been an advocate in the community,” Goodwin said. For 41 years, Goodwin has served as the publisher of the Oklahoma Eagle. “As with the law, the newspaper has provided the Black community with a continuous, challenging and undeterred voice to champion the issues that are important and critical toward an inclusive and equitable society,” he said. Keeping memory aliveWith countless untold stories of racial violence in the U.S., Mitros Durham asked, “How can we ensure that the Tulsa Massacre and other key episodes of racial violence become and remain part of our anti-racist vocabulary, part of our ongoing reckoning with our nation’s history?”Goodwin mentioned that the Tulsa Massacre is now being taught in the Tulsa public school system, and that “there will have to be a contingent effort to continue to do that.”In February, CNN reported that Oklahoma state officials had announced plans to incorporate the history of the Tulsa Race Massacre into the curriculum of schools statewide.“There is more scholarship to be had, more books that are being written about this horrific event,” Goodwin answered. “And I think the purpose of it is not to make people feel bad, but to know that racism has seriously affected this country and still afflicts it.”Goodwin then reflected on the power of storytelling in teaching racial justice.“We need to personalize. It will make people understand the human condition with some personal stories. And there are many, many personal stories that should be told and have yet to be told,” Goodwin said.Mitros Durham asked Goodwin about the purpose of the city’s recent excavations into a possible mass grave site for Blacks killed in the massacre. These efforts started in July, according to NPR.“Black lives do matter, even if they have been sacrificed,” he said. “It’s important to resurrect them, so that we can look reality in the face. It’s important to give dignity to those people who were not dignified by white folks back then.”Looking ahead“You have to have hope,” Goodwin told Mitros Durham, after she asked whether the current racial justice movement gives him reason for optimism.“I’m very hopeful. It’s not going to be done without a struggle. That’s why people like our newspaper and myself, there are thousands of us out there working in the vineyards against these evils. We must continue to struggle and never give up hope.”Goodwin expressed hope that the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre will be a “time for celebration of diversity.”He referred webinar attendees to lectures by Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson and Greg Robinson and to books by Robin DiAngelo, Scott Ellsworth, Darnella Davis, Hannibal B. Johnson, Tim Madigan and Randy Krehbiel, in order to “get a good understanding of this whole issue of racism in America.”“Hopefully, the more we talk about it, the more we analyze it, the better people will fight against it and understand the importance of being anti-racist,” Goodwin added.Goodwin’s lecture on Tulsa was part of the “Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary” series that the Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights is hosting this semester. According to Mitros Durham, approximately 400 students and around 1,000 faculty, staff and alumni have registered for the series, and as many as 700 people have attended the virtual lectures.The series has already connected participants to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Notre Dame graduate Nikole Hannah-Jones ‘98 and Archbishop Wilton Gregory of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. Videos of all lectures will be made available on the Klau Center’s website.“The overwhelming feeling that I get,” Mitros Durham told the Observer, “is that our student population wants to do better and wants to do the work necessary to do better…To me, the number one highlight is hearing from the students and hearing their earnestness and sincerity in really wanting to do this,” she said.Tags: Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary, Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights, Tulsa Massacre As the centennial of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre approaches, James Goodwin emphasized the importance of recalling the past in the path to racial justice. A Notre Dame 1961 graduate, an attorney and the publisher of the Oklahoma Eagle — the only Black-owned newspaper in Tulsa, Okla. — Goodwin spoke to the University community in a webinar by the Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights Friday.“You may ask, ‘Why is Tulsa the subject of this seminar?’” Goodwin began. “It is a place where Black Americans suffered the biggest and the deadliest racist terrorist attack in U.S. history.”On June 1 and 2, 1921, mobs of white people murdered around 300 Black Tulsans, wounded hundreds and displaced thousands, according to recent reports Dory Mitros Durham, the seminar instructor and lecture moderator, cited.Goodwin shared a description of the night of the massacre, from an editorial published in the Oklahoma Eagle last year. “By 1921, although racially segregated, the people of [the] Greenwood [district of Tulsa] flourished against enormous odds,” he read.On Memorial Day weekend 1921, a white 17-year-old girl and elevator operator claimed Dick Rowland, a 19-year-old Black shoeshiner, had assaulted her. Rowland had initially entered the building to use a segregated bathroom.Inflammatory misinformation and rumors instigated white Tulsans to find Rowland at the jail where he was being held, with the intent to lynch him. A group of Black men showed up to defend Rowland, and after a scuffle ensued and shots were fired, the race massacre in the Greenwood district of Tulsa began.“Suddenly, in the ‘twilight’s last gleaming,’ came thousands of white terrorists pillaging and utterly destroying it,” Goodwin continued, reading from the Oklahoma Eagle. “Their guns slaughtered hundreds of innocents. There were ‘bombs bursting in air.’ By the ‘dawn’s early light’ could be seen the ‘red glare’ of the smoldering ruins of [Tulsa’s] thousands of homes and businesses.”This year, Tulsa has been the focus of national attention as efforts to remember the city’s racial history and to raise awareness of the massacre have been intensified by political figures.Former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg visited the city in January and proposed a plan that would include a “$70 billion investment in the nation’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods,” local television station KTUL reported.President Donald Trump also brought attention to Tulsa when he announced he would hold a rally there June 19, a holiday also known as Juneteenth. Many celebrate Juneteenth as the day when news of freedom reached Black enslaved people in Texas in 1865, more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation.The Washington Post reported many historians had been shocked by what they called the “insulting” and “outrageous” decision to hold a rally both an important date and an important place for U.S. racial history. Following the outrage, Trump decided to change the date of the rally to June 20.last_img read more

Thaw safely

first_imgSponges – perfect home for bacteria”Keep in mind that sponges are very hard to disinfect, becausethey not only absorb and retain bacteria but also serve as aprotective environment where they can grow and survive for a longtime,” Doyle said. “Studies show that about 15 percent of kitchensponges contain bacteria like salmonella.”Many home cooks disinfect sponges by placing them in thedishwasher. To kill harmful bacteria, Doyle says a dishwasher’swater temperature should be at least 160 F.”You can disinfect kitchen sponges by placing them in themicrowave for a minute,” he said. “But make sure the sponge iswet or the sponge can catch on fire.”He recommends cleaning counters with a diluted bleach solutionand paper towels.Cutting boards can be hot spots for sharing bacteria, too. To besafe, Doyle says, designate one cutting board for fresh fruitsand vegetables and another for raw meats and poultry.Don’t forget to wash your hands often while cooking, he says,especially when handling raw meats and poultry. And use cleanutensils for each food item so you don’t cross-contaminate foods. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaIf this year’s holiday turkey is safely tucked away in the familyfreezer, remember to take it out in time for safe thawing.”When it comes to food safety, the biggest concern over theholidays is thawing the turkey properly,” said Michael Doyle, afood microbiologist with the University of Georgia College ofAgricultural and Environmental Sciences. “You’ve got to preplan,get it out and thaw it a few days ahead of time.”Doyle is the director of the UGA Center for Food Safety inGriffin, Ga. He’s a world-renowned expert in foodborne pathogens. Salmonella the main culpritA common cause of food illness from eating turkey and chicken, hesays, is salmonella. “Salmonella will grow very quickly at roomtemperature,” he said. “It grows on the outside first, whichmakes thawing outside the refrigerator dangerous. You can thawunder cold water in the sink.”If thawing in cold water, be sure to change the water every 20 to30 minutes.For safety sake, Doyle said, frozen turkeys are best thawedinside your home refrigerator, where it will remain cooler than40 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that this can take severaldays.Once your holiday bird is thawed and ready to prepare, handle theturkey carefully. Quickly clean up any turkey drippings fromcountertops.center_img Cook thoroughlyTo further ensure your holiday turkey is safe, it must bethoroughly cooked. To kill harmful bacteria, a whole turkeyshould be cooked until a food thermometer, placed in the thickestpart of the bird, registers 170-180 F, Doyle said.Once your holiday bird is ready to be served, remember to placeit on a clean serving platter.”A major cause of contamination is … placing well-cooked meatback on the platter that held the raw bird,” Doyle said. “Themeat juices and drippings often contain harmful bacteria andshould always be treated as if contaminated.”So how does the safety expert cook his holiday turkey?”I leave the cooking to my wife,” he said. “She’s an excellentcook.”last_img read more

How To Be A Badass: The Women Warriors of Asheville

first_imgOne afternoon at DuPont State Recreational Area, Shanna Powell was on a ride with some other women—when a group of guys from Florida showed up, ready to descend the same trail.“Any of you ladies like to go fast?” one guy asked with a laugh before heading down the trail.“Yeah, I like to go fast,” Powell said, and quickly dropped in front of him. He didn’t like that and began to chase, only to wreck hard behind her.“There is always that guy at the top of the mountain who assumes they are faster,” says Powell. “I will ride his ass all the way down the mountain until he lets me pass.”Powell, a local biking legend who owns Endless Bike Company, teaches mountain bike skills to classes of men, doesn’t let a concussion stop her from hitting big jump lines, andencourages women to go big when their boyfriends aren’t looking. And she will correct you if you use the term “pussy” in a derogatory way.“I never understood why people refer to balls as tough or strong,” adds Allison Hardy, a renowned long distance runner and enduro rider. “I mean, they are fragile. They hide when things get cold and scary.”Becky Bashton, another badass biker, says it’s not so much about getting good at one thing as it is just creating a lifestyle of fun and creating a culture. Bikes just happen to be at the center of hers. Bashton rode just about every kind of bike and became a nationally renowned biker, but then she suffered a serious shoulder injury involving a collar bone sticking through her trapezius.During her painful months of recovery, her husband Si Ezolt helped her with physical therapy, showering, and even combed and braided her hair for work.Once she was riding again, Bashton and her husband celebrated her 40th birthday by shredding a downhill race and a 26-mile cross-country race in California. After the cross country race, she rode another six miles back to the festival, her bikini and flip flops in her Camelbak, and eyeballed the crooked ramp and pile of BMX bikes for the next competition. She couldn’t resist entering. Her husband was worried, especially since the last time she hurt herself was because she was tired and wanted to do “just one more line.”“There were two entries left and they were all kids and young guys,” Bashton recalls. “There was no practice. They just told me to hold on with all my f**king might”.Among all of the guys doing spins, she hit a backflip into the lake. The crowd went wild. It was the best trick of the day, and onlookers were high-fiving each other. But then the announcer made a menopause joke. Why?Fortunately, most men in Asheville aren’t like the announcer. Not only is there an amazing tribe of badass women in Asheville, but there is also a large group of men who treat women as equals on the trail. They are not surprised when a woman outrides them. They are just as likely to call one of their women riding buddies as they are their dudes.If you’re a male who rides, and you wish your girlfriend was a rider, then you’re going to have to create a safe space for her to succeed. Taking her into the woods so that you can drop her on a big climb or fast descent is not going to impress her, and it’s not going to make her stoked about the next time. Another common mistake is to take a beginner on a really technical trail and then act nonchalant about it.“That’s why she’ll never ride bikes again,” explains Powell.Despite growing up in an environment that stereotyped women as the weaker sex, Clint Spiegel, owner of Industry Nine, says he learned women were stronger at his first adventure race with Erinna Hegarty Wever. “We raced for 30 hours straight, and not only was she faster on every climb and faster on every descent, but what really struck me was her positive attitude. She never stopped smiling. Men on other teams—you could see the cracking in their eyes. Their panic. Their disbelief. I started believing that women were a little tougher.”Spiegel, who regularly shreds downhill gnar with a “party atmosphere climb” in a group of close friends, says that the quality of women in Asheville dispels stereotypes into a better culture because the women raise each other to higher heights as they watch each other succeed. His wife, Michelle Rogers Spiegel, had lived in Alaska and was very comfortable in the outdoors world. She had a lot to teach him and he was a willing learner. As a result, they are able to grow together in their adventuresome lifestyle, teaching each other.“If people are more capable than me, I’m going to follow their lead,” Spiegel says. “There’s no reason to have a bias.”For that reason, Spiegel laughs at the thought of saying things like, “You’re fast FOR A GIRL!”Spiegel’s theory on why the women of Asheville are such warriors is that they are leading that path for other women. “Just think how many women have the natural born talent to be great business leaders, but their culture encouraged them to do something else instead,” he says. “I think that is happening in our outdoor community. I wouldn’t be surprised to see way more women kicking male ass each year as we move forward.”last_img read more

VACU’s members follow their credit union online for financial education

first_imgVirginia Credit Union($4.3B, Richmond, VA) had to slam the door on in-person classes when COVID-19 came calling, but the Old Dominion cooperative was ready to roll online.Quickly switching to an all-virtual class structure, VACU continued with its already robust lineup of digital offerings, which include topics such as “Strategies for Eliminating Debt”, and added some more timely ones, like “5 Steps to Protect Yourself Financially from the Impact of the Coronavirus”.That particular webinar, in fact, has drawn more than 2,000 viewings. In total, from mid-March to the end of July, 26,346 people have attended one or more of the pre-recorded virtual sessions on a variety of topics, says Cherry Dale, who became the Richmond-based credit union’s first financial education director when she came aboard in August 2007.“We’ve had as little as 10 or 20 people attend a webinar and some that have drawn more than a thousand people,” Dale says. continue reading » 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Efficacy of flu shots in children under 2 questioned

first_imgFeb 25, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – An analysis of 24 studies yielded no clear evidence that influenza vaccines prevent flu in children younger than 2 years old, though they work reasonably well in older children, according to a new report in The Lancet.”Immunization of very young children is not lent support by our findings,” says the report by T. Jefferson of Cochrane Vaccines Field in Alessandria, Italy, and colleagues from there and the University of Oxford in England.The report comes less than a year after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that children 6 to 23 months old routinely receive flu shots on grounds that they have an increased risk of flu and its complications.The CDC says the Lancet analysis left out some important studies showing that flu shots are beneficial for young children. The agency will continue to recommend flu shots for 6- to 23-month-olds, a spokeswoman said.Jefferson and colleagues combed the worldwide literature up to June 2004 and found 15 randomized controlled trials, eight cohort studies, and one case-control study comparing the effects of flu immunization with placebo or no immunization in children. The researchers looked at the vaccines’ efficacy, defined as prevention of laboratory-confirmed flu; effectiveness in preventing flu-like illness; and effectiveness in reducing hospitalizations, complications, school absences, and secondary transmission.The authors did separate analyses of studies dealing with live attenuated flu vaccines, which are not used in small children, and those involving inactivated vaccines. The analysis did not include studies assessing children’s immune-system responses to vaccines (serologic studies).In children under age 2, vaccination yielded 24% efficacy against flu, which was not significantly better than placebo, but this finding was based on one study involving about 800 children, the report says. No data were available on the effectiveness of vaccination for preventing flu-like illness in the under-2 group.Among children 2 years and older, live attenuated vaccines were 79% efficacious in preventing flu, while inactivated vaccines were 65% efficacious, according to the analysis. The effectiveness of vaccines against flu-like illness was much lower: 38% for live vaccines, 28% for inactivated vaccines.”Differences between efficacy and effectiveness of vaccines are not surprising because influenza vaccines are specifically targeted at influenza viruses and are not designed to prevent other causes of influenza-like illness,” the report states.The researchers found that immunization reduced long school absences, but they saw little evidence that it reduced hospital admissions and stays, secondary cases, lower-respiratory-tract disease, or acute otitis media.”Although a growing body of evidence shows the effect of influenza on admissions and deaths of children, we recorded no convincing evidence that vaccines can reduce mortality, admissions, serious complications, and community transmission of influenza,” the article concludes.Kristine Sheedy, a spokeswoman for the CDC’s National Immunization Program in Atlanta, told CIDRAP News that the analysis left out some important evidence on the effects of flu immunization in small children.The authors “included many important studies, but they did exclude other important studies,” she said. She mentioned a CDC study published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report in August 2004 and a 2001 study by K. M. Neuzil and colleagues, published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal.A careful review of the Lancet report itself as well as the excluded studies “indicates that influenza vaccination is effective in this population” (6- to 23-month-olds), Sheedy said.She added that serologic studies of small children have shown a strong immune response to flu vaccine. Also, additional studies soon to be reported by the CDC will provide more support for the effectiveness of flu immunization in preventing hospitalization and outpatient visits in children, she said.”I hope people will keep in mind the burden of disease in children,” Sheedy said. “When you have a safe and effective vaccine for influenza, why wouldn’t you want to protect the children at greatest risk?”Jefferson T, Smith S, Demicheli V, et al.

SWINE FLU BREAKING NEWS: Global case count, US cases widespread, pigs infected, Mexico sees improvement, concern about hoarding

first_img The Centers for Disease Control reported 286 confirmed US cases in 36 states as of this morning. The total included 73 cases in New York, 41 in Texas, 30 in California, 20 in Delaware, and 17 in Arizona. At a briefing yesterday, the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat said the virus is widespread, meaning that “virtually all of the United States probably has this virus circulating now.” She also said 30 patients, mainly older children and younger adults, had been hospitalized, and some of those cases were severe. [CDC swine flu page] The demand for oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza) is running nine times normal for this time of year, Reuters reported recently, quoting SDI, a firm that provides healthcare analysis for the drug industry. But hoarding has not prevented supplies from reaching those who need them, and major distributors said they still had adequate amounts, the story said. [Reuters report] A swine herd in Alberta was found to be infected with the H1N1 virus, probably from a Canadian carpenter who works on the farm and had a flu-like illness when he returned from a visit to Mexico in mid-April, Canadian and US authorities reported on May 2. The carpenter has recovered and the pigs were recovering, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said. The farm has been quarantined. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said pork and pork products remain safe and the finding would not affect US trade with Canada. At a briefing yesterday, a WHO official said the virus in the swine does not appear to be different from the one in humans. [CFIA statement, USDA statement] The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the CDC urged the public not to hoard drugs and supplies for treating and preventing flu, so that supplies will remain for those most in need. In a statement today, the agencies said consumers may encounter spot shortages of antiviral drugs and masks. [FDA-CDC statement] Twenty countries were reporting a total of 985 confirmed cases of influenza A/H1N1 (swine flu) as of early today, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. Mexico has reported 590 cases with 25 deaths. The WHO total includes yesterday’s US report of 226 cases in 30 states, with one death. Other countries with more than 10 cases were Canada, 85; Spain, 40; and the United Kingdom, 15. [WHO statement] Mexico’s flu epidemic has begun to decline, according to Health Minister Angel Cordova as quoted by Agence France-Presse (AFP) today. He said hospital admissions for flu-like illness were dropping and credited the public’s use of face masks and handwashing for helping to limit the epidemic. But he said the assessment was preliminary and the country had to stay on guard. [AFP report] May 4, 2009last_img read more

Dela Rosa confirms US visa ‘cancelled’

Dela Rosa said the cancellation might belinked to his supposed involvement in the extrajudicial killings (EJK)allegedly perpetuated by police under Duterte’s intensified campaign againstnarcotics. In its letter, the US embassy neithergave a date nor reason when and why the visa was canceled, he said. In December 2019, news websitePolitiko.com reported that Dela Rosa, who spearheaded President RodrigoDuterte’s bloody war on drugs during his stint as police chief, has been bannedfrom entering the United States. The US, however, has yet to release anofficial list that identifies De Lima’s jailers. Several senators, including SenatePresident Vicente Sotto III, dismissed the ban on De Lima’s jailers as fakenews, but Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said the provision in theUS budget was legitimate. De Lima has refuted the allegations andcalled her detention as politically motivated. (ABS-CBN News/PN) “No reason was stated,” he said. “Basta mag-apply lang daw ako ulit kung gusto ko kasi the present visa wascancelled.” De Lima, one of Duterte’s most vocalcritics, was detained in February 2017 due to her alleged ties with theproduction and sale of illegal drugs inside the national penitentiary under herwatch as Justice secretary. “What is 11,000 compared to the whole Filipino nation na matagal ng sinamantalahan ng isang kumpanya,” says Sen. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa. ABS-CBN NEWS “Bakarelated na diyan [sa EJK],” he said, noting that he firstreceived the tip about his visa before Sen. Manny Pacquiao’s Las Vegas boxingbout in July 2019, long before US senators mentioned that jailers of Philippineopposition Senator Leila de Lima will be barred from entering the US territory. “We received their official answerthe day before my birthday, January 20. What a good birthday gift,” Dela Rosatold Senate reporters on Wednesday. MANILA – Sen. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosaconfirmed that the United States canceled his visa after he inquired about itsstatus last week. read more

Gambler Fergie reaped rewards

first_img But, in a series of interviews with Harvard Business School professor Anita Elberse in 2012 that have just been published, Ferguson indicated such triumphs did not occur by accident. “I am a gambler – a risk taker – and you can see that in how we played in the late stages of matches,” said Ferguson, who it has been announced is to receive the honorary freedom of Trafford borough.. “If we were down with 15 minutes to go, I was ready to take more risks. “I was perfectly happy to lose 3-1 if it meant we’d given ourselves a good chance to draw or win. “So in those last 15 minutes, we’d go for it. We’d put in an extra attacking player and worry less about defence. “We knew that if we ended up winning 3-2, it would be a fantastic feeling. “And if we lost 3-1, we’d been losing anyway.” In a unique insight into his managerial philosophy, the 71-year-old, who retired in May having won a remarkable 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies within a record haul of silverware, admitted it was unlikely any manager would benefit from being allowed four years to win his first trophy, as he was in 1986. So often did United score in the latter stages of matches it was almost a surprise when they did not manage it. The epic 1999 Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich, when United scored twice in stoppage time to turn the game on its head, was the most obvious example. Ferguson also stressed the need for any manager to maintain control of the dressing room, something he managed to do at United, often at the cost of the biggest names. “There are occasions when you have to ask yourself whether certain players are affecting the dressing room atmosphere, the performance of the team, and your control of the players and staff,” he said. “If they are, you have to cut the cord. “There is absolutely no other way. “It doesn’t matter if the person is the best player in the world. “Some English clubs have changed managers so many times that it creates power for the players in the dressing room. That is very dangerous.” The last observation would seem to point at Chelsea, although they have been United’s closest challengers for the past decade. In addition, Ferguson claimed one of the best decisions he ever made about his own managerial style was during his time at Aberdeen, when he decided to take a more hands-off attitude towards training, unlike his United successor David Moyes. Sir Alex Ferguson believes it is his natural gambler’s instinct that led to so many late wins for Manchester United down the years. Press Associationlast_img read more

NOAA: Hurricane Michael was a Category 5

first_imgThey say this is five miles more than the operational estimate and makes Hurricane Michael a Category 5.Scientists say Hurricane Michael is the first hurricane to make landfall as a Category 5 storm since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 in South Miami, and only the fourth on record. Other Category 5 storms include the Labor Day Hurricane in 1935 and Hurricane Camille in 1969.They go on to say the Category 5 winds were likely experienced over a very small area at and near the coast.They say the change in estimated wind speeds is “of little practical significance” when talking about impacts from the storm.Hurricane Season 2019 begins June 1st. The damage left behind by Hurricane Michael, which was classified as a Category 4 storm speaks for itself.Scientists at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center have now upgraded Hurricane Michael to a Category 5.Scientists say after analyzing all data on Hurricane Michael, they determined the storm made landfall with wind speeds of 160 miles per hour when the eye made landfall near Mexico Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.

Powered by inside game, SU women’s basketball cruises to win

first_img Published on December 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments Iasia Hemingway continued the trend. On Syracuse’s first possession out of halftime, the junior forward caught the ball at the high post and turned to face the basket. Maryland Eastern Shore’s defense overshifted, leaving a gaping hole between Hemingway and the basket. She slashed down the lane as the Hawks center Chena Parker tried to slide underneath the basket. As Hemingway laid the ball up off the backboard, Parker swung for the block. But she whacked Hemingway across the face as the ball dropped through the hoop. As the whistle blew to send Hemingway to the free-throw line, where the Orange had made a living in the first half, the Syracuse junior gave an emphatic fist pump to the SU bench. ‘When I get an and-one, I get really excited because, you know, that’s a tough move,’ she said. ‘So I just do what I can to keep my team pumped. To let them know, ‘I’m here with you. We’re going to get this.” Hemingway ended up missing the free throw, but that was a rarity for the Orange on Wednesday night. Syracuse (5-0) visited the charity stripe 31 times during its 73-50 win over UMES (1-2) in front of 1,011 fans at the Carrier Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It made 26 of those free throws, good for more than a third of its points in the game. And with the SU shooters struggling to find their range, Hemingway and sophomore center Kayla Alexander powered the Orange to the big win. And they were a big part of SU’s 83.9 percent free-throw shooting. ‘It’s good to keep getting to the line because I think that it takes some of their players off the floor,’ SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said. ‘Obviously, making them is huge, and if we can keep shooting the ball like that from the free-throw line, the way we rebound the ball, we’re going to be very good.’ As the Orange guards struggled to hit shots from the perimeter (1-for-23 from 3-point range), Alexander and Hemingway controlled the game in the paint. Alexander led the team with 27 points on 9-of-9 shooting. Hemingway finished with 20 and missed only two shots from the field. ‘Our shooting was terrible from the outside,’ sophomore guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘Getting the ball inside … that was a big part. Because when you get it up on the rim, we can go get it. We can go crash.’ And in getting the ball into the paint, the Orange repeatedly drew fouls from Hawks defenders. Syracuse was in the shooting bonus with 10:51 left in the first half. UMES forward Shanyce Stewart fouled out with two minutes left in the game. Two other Hawks finished with four fouls. And Hemingway and Alexander took advantage. When they weren’t scoring over UMES defenders from in close, they were making their trips to the line count. Alexander went 9-of-10 from the charity stripe while Hemingway finished 6-of-7. ‘That’s just us working hard and going hard,’ Alexander said. ‘Following Coach’s game plan, going to work and playing as a team.’ With the Orange missing its third leading scorer, Erica Morrow, due to a bruised right foot and the shooters struggling from the outside, Alexander and Hemingway rose to the occasion. Alexander turned in a dominant performance from the low post, something that has become typical of the sophomore this year against undersized opponents. Her 27 points broke the career high of 24 she set Monday night against New Hampshire. And Hillsman said he challenged Hemingway to step up with the absence of Morrow. The transfer from Georgia Tech did just that. Much of her scoring came from her 12 rebounds. But she did flash the ability to drive to the hoop and even hit a long jumper from the top of the free-throw circle. ‘I did what I had to do for my team to get a win,’ Hemingway said. ‘With Erica being out, I just had to play hard. And Coach Q told me I had to come out and step up and play a big role. So I did what I had to do to get the ‘W’ for my team.’ [email protected]center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Pi Kappa Phi fraternity no longer recognized by USC

first_imgUSC said the safety and well-being of students is the University’s top priority and hazing is not tolerated on campus. Pi Kappa Phi declined to comment specifically on the loss of recognition, which was announced to the fraternity Jan. 10, according to USC. Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity will no longer be recognized by Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development after an investigation revealed it violated hazing policies. (Sinead Chang/Daily Trojan) Pi Kappa Phi was listed as unrecognized on the Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development website in January for hazing and safety violations. The organization is no longer recognized by the national organization and cannot conduct chapter meetings, recruitment or socials, according to the website. USC will no longer recognize Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity  after an investigation found that the organization violated hazing regulations. “USC expects fraternities to uphold the values of their organization and USC,” the University wrote. “Membership in a fraternity is considered to be a privilege, and with this privilege comes the responsibility of acceptable conduct.” “The University will not tolerate behavior that put students in jeopardy and is inconsistent with our values,” USC wrote. “Hazing is a violation of our university’s community standards and is a threat to student health and well-being,” the University wrote in a statement to the Daily Trojan.

Dana Valelly provides digs, assists when Syracuse needs her

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ During most of Friday night’s game against North Carolina, and all of Sunday’s game against North Carolina State, junior Dana Valelly stood on the sideline, often clapping and cheering her teammates on. It’s something Valelly has done a lot this season, only appearing in seven sets, a large decrease from the 113 she played in last season.But on Oct. 14, in a 3-2 loss to Florida State (third in the ACC standings), Valelly made the most of her appearance, playing in all five sets and leading the team in digs with 16. She also added an ace and three assists. With even better efficiency than last season, Valelly provides valuable depth that can aid Syracuse (12-6, 8-2 Atlantic Coast) down the stretch.“She saved a lot of points for us,” SU assistant coach Derryk Williams said of the Florida State game. “So I think defensively she did a great job. Having a second setter on the court is always great in case we’re out of system, and she can really take care of the ball.”With her 16 digs, which tied a career best, Valelly is currently averaging 2.29 digs per set. That’s a full dig more compared to 1.23 her sophomore year and 1.02 her freshman year, when she appeared in 64 sets. That mark is good enough for fourth-highest on the team.Digs are an area Syracuse can improve in, having entered last weekend ranked No. 281 in the country in digs per set, averaging 13.35. Having another defensive specialist like Valelly could provide a much needed boost.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s definitely different than freshman year,” Valelly said. “You kind of feel it as an upperclassman, especially junior year. You’re not as timid and you kind of know the ways around the place and you know how the system works in the ACC.”Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorThis year, Valelly has specialized at the “one” position on the court. In a typical 5-1 rotation, the one is the defensive specialist that complements the libero, and is normally situated in the back right of the court, playing diagonally opposite from the designated setter.In a 6-2 rotation, though, Valelly gives the Orange a second setter. Syracuse remains steady setting this year. Jalissa Trotter has accounted for 71.7 percent of SU’s assists with 647. Valelly finished with 169 last season, but has only four this year, on account of mostly going in as a defensive specialist.“Well she can help (Trotter) when she’s on the court like, ‘Hey there’s something open’ or ‘What am I doing?’” senior Santita Ebangwese said. “She can help her out because she’s a setter, she knows what she’s looking for. And two, if (Trotter) were to take the first ball or (Trotter) is not able to get the second ball, we still have another setter on the court that can still run our offense.”Valelly evolved her game — even if she doesn’t get the chance to show it on gameday.“I definitely have seen growth,” Ebangwese said. “Her setting is much better, her decision making is great and her one defense has gotten exponentially better.”No matter how much she plays, Valelly still has the Florida State game as reminder of how she can help the team going forward, and how she’s helped the team in the past.“Even though she’s a setter, we know she’s a good defender,” Yelin said. “It’s nothing new for her.” Comments Published on October 23, 2018 at 11:38 pm Contact Eric: [email protected]last_img read more

They enable users to deposit cash into their accounts via their mobiles, opening a market of customers who want deposit conveniently on the go. I’d also predict that the soon to be launched MuchBetter wallet app will create some noise.The telecom networks, not just the device manufacturers, are also recognising the need for comprehensive payment suites and security as an added service. As these develop and customers grow more comfortable with using their debit or credit card via their phone or tablet, I believe we will see more and more payments shift towards a mobile option.And, who knows, maybe as more devices hit the market with near field communications (NFC) technology some clever operator will find a way to utilise that for deposits.SBC: What role will cryptocurrencies play in the future? We’ve seen several Bitcoin only operators emerge in the past year…RS: I think everyone acknowledges now that cryptocurrencies are going to be part of everyday life, much to the chagrin and resistance of the more traditional financial institutions and card schemes. We need to accept that crypto is out there to provide an alternative means of payment.However, like with any new phenomenon, it takes time for everyone to become accustomed with how it works. There’s a strong push by the crypto industry to educate both operators and users alike on the benefits of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and, as they improve, we will undoubtedly see more and more operations accepting it as a form of payment.Bitcoin got a bad rap when it initially started making waves, particularly because of the perceived complete anonymity of it, its association with all things dark web and the volatility of the value; but I think the industry has done a lot to clean-up its image since then. It’s only a matter of time before it is a standard alternative across all eCommerce sectors, not just betting and gambling.SBC: What role does payment processing play in customer acquisition and retention?RS: Payment processing can be key to customer acquisition; it is the final stage of the initial deposit process. If the customer can’t get their funds into their gaming account, then they simply walk away and go to play elsewhere.It also plays an important role in the “first impression” stage when a customer initially arrives at your home page. They must feel instantly comfortable. One way of doing that is by displaying recognised and reputable payment service providers, so that the player knows that they are going to be using a familiar and trusted process when transferring funds into their account.The same is true for customer retention. It is important to make the user experience as seamless and straightforward as possible to encourage repeat deposits whilst still maintaining a high level of security. There is so much competition out there that if a player ever feels uncomfortable or that their payment information is not secure, they will take their business elsewhere.SBC: Finally, why did you decide to get involved as a sponsor at the recent Betting on Football?RS: Secure Trading will be focusing on the betting and gambling industry as a core sector in the future and have previously sponsored SBC events in the past, but at a much smaller level. Having seen this and other SBC events go from strength to strength over recent years, we felt that there was no time like the present to increase our association with them.last_img read more

Despite the slow start, Mota led the charge against a Mates defence that lost a few key starters in Mike Lucas and Nate Fedorchuk.But the rally was shortlived as the Mates were able to hold on to secure the two-point victory.Voykin also rushed for one major while connecting for a one-point conversion.The other pivot for Dam Inn, Vic Hoodicoff also had a TD pass and a one-point conversion.Devito, Ken Malakoff and Rick Nixon were on the receiving end of TD passes from Hoodicoff and Voykin.Dan Rywaczuk and Del Melnyk also had interceptions for Dam Inn.In the preliminary game, Nelson Hour Glass had an easy time keeping pace with Dam Inn as the Heritage City squad earned a freebee after Brewers forfeited the game due to lack of players.The league is idle Thanksgiving weekend before returning to action October 14 when Dam Inn meets Brewers at 11 a.m. and Hour Glass plays the Vikings at 1 p.m.last_img read more

Julen Guerrero: “Lack of daring with young people”

first_imgJulen Guerrero (Portugalete, Vizcaya, 1974) has been the U-15 and U-16 coach of the Spanish Nationwide Group since 2018. Though his work has few headlines within the press, it’s important: he makes the primary filter of essentially the most proficient young folks within the nation. The previous Athletic participant analyzes on this joint interview with AS, Onda Cero and Marca how he’s experiencing confinement and explains his work within the Federation.How are you doing in confinement?I miss the competitors, the sector … However from house I work comfortable, that doesn’t change a lot from the workplace or from house. The unhealthy factor shouldn’t be having competitions. I watch rather a lot of movies, I analyze matches … And I’ve made videoconferences, for the second with the Sub-15, by strains, with movies of tournaments that we’ve got had: we analyzed issues to enhance and what was executed effectively.What methodology have they got for this U-15 recruitment?We, for instance, are already seeing the Sub-14, whom we’re going to meet subsequent 12 months. We’re going to see them matches and particularly tournaments, as a result of that’s the place they go away the consolation they’ve within the league, the place they comfortably win many video games. My management is Sub-14, Sub-15 and Sub-16. From every class you may have between 50 and 80, it isn’t solely the 20 or 23 that you simply carry. We file the video games we go to and those we don’t, we discuss to the golf equipment to allow them to ship them to us. You may have filters, however I prefer to see the footballers. It’s a lot of work, however if you wish to do it effectively it have to be like this.How vital are these classes?It is vital in your studying. We put together the matches nearly professionally, one thing they aren’t used to. We wish them to reach effectively ready at U17, the place they’ll have already got a European championship.Concerning Spanish grassroots soccer … Do you suppose it needs to be reformed to be extra aggressive?For me it will be vital to present a couple of laps to the leagues. In Cadete, for instance, they’ve three or 4 sophisticated video games a 12 months. Then they’re squads of 25 gamers, they rotate … It’s troublesome to see a whole sport as a result of there are seven modifications. There is no such thing as a requirement or continuity. Golf equipment work effectively, however these leagues don’t assist go to the restrict. I have no idea if it could possibly be modified, as a result of in the long run every part may be very native and you would need to open slightly extra and journey. I don’t know … However the leagues they play in don’t assist them take that one step additional. Is it time now that every part has stopped to suggest a reform?Any time is an efficient time to replicate. I do not forget that Juvenil I performed on the nationwide degree, all of the groups in Spain. Now within the Honor Division they’ve few demanding matches, they play very native. There are the Champions Cup and the King’s Cup, however it’s a week and in a match you’ll be able to go house. We should make a mirrored image …Are you in favor of a league of subsidiaries as a substitute of competing in Second B and Third?An under-23 league of subsidiaries can be highly effective and aggressive, it will be factor. I’d give extra significance to quarry work. What makes me unhappy is doing the job after which the membership doesn’t dare to make the leap. I come from Athletic, the place yearly two or three children debut. However I don’t see that in all of the golf equipment. I see that they work and the vital factor is to work and be daring. Most golf equipment have a tough time taking the plunge. Lack slightly daring with young folks.Altering the topic … How do you see the Cup ultimate being with the general public?For me, coming from Athletic, the followers are the soul of the membership. A ultimate with out that pastime that wraps you up daily can be unhappy. However, you lose the choice to play Europe, though if the League returns, Athletic has time to get well to seventh place. For me essentially the most troublesome factor is that if the gamers who aren’t there, those that go away the squad are performed in February. Perhaps even the teaching employees for no matter it’s is not going to arrive … That saddens me.What do you suppose of the return to competitors? Will it change with all 5 substitutions?The vital factor is to be constant: should you can, transfer ahead, and if there’s a safety danger, make one other choice. There are the scientists who know. We might have the will to play, however they must determine whether or not or to not proceed. And the 5 modifications … modifications rather a lot. 5 modifications aren’t the identical for one membership as for one more. Some take them from a really excessive degree and others lose slightly. Additionally, you’ll be able to change two on the break and you continue to have three left …last_img read more

No more relegation fights, vow Mathare United

first_img0Shares0000The Slum Boys spent almost the entire season in the bottom three positions of the Kenyan Premier League standings but just managed to evade the relegation axe, finishing the season at 13th.NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 1- Mathare United skipper George ‘Wise’ Owino says the club has learnt its lessons and is not ready to dangle on the thin line of relegation for yet another season when the new campaign kicks-off this weekend.The Slum Boys spent almost the entire season in the bottom three positions of the Kenyan Premier League standings but just managed to evade the relegation axe, finishing the season at 13th. This season, Owino says, their target will be to work for a top four finish and if at worse finish in the top eight.“It was a very tough situation last year because of the situation we found ourselves in. We had a very young squad, most of who had not played in the league before and we ended up struggling because of small mistakes,” Owino told Capital Sport at the club’s training base on Thursday.“We have learnt our lessons and the good thing this year is that we have a bit of experience in the team with the players that have come in. We want to start the season better and keep it that way,” Owino, one of the most experienced players in the league said.Head coach Francis Kimanzi is also optimistic the performance this season will be better, though he does not specifically outline his targets.Head coach Francis Kimanzi is also optimistic the performance this season will be better, though he does not specifically outline his targets.Last season, Mathare started off with a 3-2 win away to Thika United before going on a dry run of six matches.“When you have a foundation you can’t change much; you continue from there. From last season, we have players who can continue working well and we also have brought in players who can add something different to the game. We have to see if they cope to the culture of the team and if they can settle in,” Kimanzi noted.The Slum Boys have brought in nine new players into the squad with among others Samuel Ndung’u joining from AFC Leopards, Mike Simiyu from Gor Mahia and Clifford Alwanga from Tusker while goalkeeper Robert Mboya returns from Kariobangi Sharks.“We have a lot of quality in the team and balanced in all departments. No one can be comfortable in their positions and the competition brought in is very good. Overall, I think we have a very strong team,” skipper Owino added.Mathare United assistant coach Salim Ali (left) makes a pointto his boss Francis Kimanzi during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Thika Sub County Stadium in April, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHowever, coach Kimanzi is not celebrating early, saying he will wait to see how they integrate into the team in actual match days.“So far so good, though we have not had plenty time to prepare. The new guys are working very hard and hopefully, they can get into the system well. It is always a gamble; you never know whether you have a right player or not especially those who have been in many teams,” Kimanzi noted.Mathare start the season with a tricky away tie against newly promoted Vihiga United and Kimanzi knows it will not be an easy fixture to walk in as they don’t know much about their opponents.“We don’t know much about them so we have to concentrate on ourselves and what we can do with our strengths. Every team wants to win the first match and for us it will be crucial as well to start with a win for some good momentum,” the tactician notes.He is also backing the new young players brought in to shine, among them being Klinsman Omulanga and Johnstone Omurwa signed from Wazito FC.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Strange Exploding Star Continues to Puzzle Astronomers

first_imgThe Hubble took another image of the expanding shell of star V838 Monocerotis (see ESA and Hubblesite).  Four years after the first dramatic sequence (see 05/29/2003), astronomers are still puzzled by this star, with the most dramatic light echo ever photographed.  Leading hypothesis now is that two stars collided before the outburst.  The image made Astronomy Picture of the Day for Nov 3.    The new Hubble image made the Oct. 14 cover of Science News.1  Ron Cowen wrote that astronomers have never seen anything like it and are “stumped by its behavior.”  It rapidly brightened and dimmed and swelled up to a gargantuan size as big as the orbit of Saturn.  It grew 30 times brighter in a single day a month after the explosion was witnessed in 2002, and grew 500 times its original width in a month.  Then its temperature rapidly dropped from 6000K to 2000K.  It’s unlike a classical nova; it may be a prototype for a new class of star.  Did a “hot Jupiter” planet fall into it?  Did two stars collide?  Researchers are toying with various theories.  “In the meantime,” Cowen ended, “astronomers have some beautiful pictures adorning their walls—and an intriguing stellar mystery.”    The Hubble also took a dramatic picture of a supernova remnant, Cassiopeia A, in August; see EurekAlert and Hubblesite.  The outward-expanding shell is still moving at 30 million kilometers per hour, 340 years after the explosion around 1667.  It may have been seen by John Flamsteed, Astronomer Royal in Britain.  Speaking of anomalies, in late September, another “weird” supernova was described by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, reported EurekAlert.  The fact that its mass is well over the Chandrasekhar Limit of 1.4 solar masses for supernovae, according to well-established theory, “opens up a Pandora’s box” for inferring distances to remote galaxies and the presence of dark matter.  Though it may be possible to distinguish these “super-Chandrasekhar-mass” cases from regular Type 1a supernovae by their spectra, it’s not easy to do.  Dark energy studies and cosmological distance probes have been made on the basis that Type 1a supernovae were all the same, providing “standard candles” for measurement.1Ron Cowen, “Enigmatic eruption: the strange case of V838 Monocerotis,” Science News, Week of Oct. 14, 2006; Vol. 170, No. 16, p. 248.Supernovae were thought to be standard candles, till they were found to fall into two classes dubbed Type I and II.  Then Type 1 supernovae were the standard candles, till varieties were found, named 1a, 1b, and 1c.  Now Type 1a supernovas include some fast-rotating types with masses above the Chandrasekhar Limit.  Then there are some Type II’s that can switch types, says Wikipedia.  The universe keeps throwing curve balls at simplistic theories.  This is something to tuck away in your back pocket when reading confident claims about the universe.    The pictures from Hubble, as usual, are really striking – almost unreal.  One of the legacies of the Hubble Space Telescope has been its portrayal of astronomical objects as dynamic environments, where dramatic processes are at work.  The stars will never again look like static, twinkling, changeless ornaments in the sky.  V838 is a dramatic example of how quickly things can change in the celestial realm.  Sorry, Aristotle.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Bafana Bafana rise in world rankings

first_img18 October 2013Bafana Bafana moved up seven places to 61st in the latest Fifa world rankings, which were released on Thursday.It has been a year of fluctuating fortunes for the South African national football team, which began 2013 ranked 85th in the world, but rocketed up 25 places in February after a strong performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.After remaining in a narrow band, ranked between 56th and 62nd, until July, the team slid to 67th in August and a further place in September before its latest rise.African rankingBafana Bafana are level with Libya in the world rankings and in 11th place on the continent, and while the ascent of the team will be a welcome development the 11th place is far off the ambition of the South African Football Association to see all South African national teams ranked in the top three on the continent.Africa’s top team, the Ivory Coast, is ranked 17th in the world, followed by Ghana in 23rd place, Algeria in 32nd and African champions, Nigeria, in 33rd place.It has been a busy year for Bafana Bafana, with the team playing 17 matches, winning seven of them, losing six and drawing four times. Two of their losses came in shootouts from the penalty spot.African Nations ChampionshipThe composition of the team has varied for different competitions, and coach Gordon Igesund will be forced to shuffle his squad again as he prepares the players for their next challenge, the African Nations Championship.The continental competition to be played in Cape Town, Polokwane and Bloemfontein from 11 January to 1 February 2014, features national teams made up of players who ply their trade in their home countries.South Africa are in Group C of the 16-team finals with Nigeria, Mali and Mozambique. Nigeria and Mali are ranked above Bafana Bafana in Africa, but the relative strength of the four teams is something of an unknown given that the teams will be composed of only home-based players.Nigeria beat the Ivory Coast in qualifying, winning 4-1 at home and losing 0-2 away to book their place in South Africa. Mali saw off Guinea after a 3-1 home win and a 0-1 loss in the second leg of their tie.Mozambique, meanwhile, sneaked through their tie, thumping Namibia 3-0 at home, but losing 0-3 away before edging it 5-4 from the penalty spot.BAFANA BAFANA RESULTS 2013 8 Jan: Cape Town, SA 0-1 Norway12 Jan: Johannesburg, SA 0-0 Algeria19 Jan: Johannesburg, SA 0-0 Cape Verde Islands23 Jan: Durban, SA 2-0 Angola27 Jan: Durban, SA 2-2 Morocco02 Feb: Durban, SA 1-1 a.e.t.

South Africans show passion for the arts

first_img17 July 2015The popularity of the National Arts Festival has been reaffirmed with the release of this year’s attendance figures, which show a “significant” increase in attendance in 2015. This increase comes despite expectations that attendance might flatten after last year’s bumper 40th birthday programme.“The total number of tickets issued increased to 241 116, representing 6.9% growth over 2014. Even more heartening is that, within this number, there are more paid- for tickets than ever before with the rand value of tickets bought for festival shows up by 18%,” said Tony Lankester, the festival’s chief executive.“While the festival continues to offer great value and plenty of free entertainment, audiences are showing that they respond to quality work positively, and are prepared to put their money where their passion is – even in a tough economic climate. This augers well for the arts sector, and is a ringing endorsement for the talent and hard work of our artists.”On the main programme, jazz and theatre each accounted for roughly one third of sales, with the remaining third being split between dance, comedy, music and some of the niche genres.“The quickest selling show was Irish comedian Dylan Moran, whose three performances in the Guy Butler Theatre sold out faster than any show we’ve seen in recent years. We also had a massive response to Thandiswa Mazwai, Beatenberg, Ray Phiri and MiCasa, as well as to Chester Missing and Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner for theatre, Christiaan Olwagen’s A Doll’s House,” Lankester said.Sold out houses“The list of main productions that had sold out houses is long – but includes Three Blind Mice, the Baxter Theatre’s remake of Barney Simon’s Born in the RSA and Pieter Dirk Uys’s A Part Hate, A Part Love. It was also great to see former Victoria Girls High School head girl Nomfundo Xaluva perform to a sold-out crowd on the Standard Bank Jazz Festival stage.”Both the Symphony Concert and the Gala Concert also played to packed houses.Artistic director Ismail Mahomed said he was delighted with the response to the programme on offer. “Audiences are responding well to both fresh approaches to classic works (Hamlet, A Doll’s House, Born in the RSA) and exciting new work (Three Blind Mice, A Voice I Cannot Silence),” he said.Mahomed also noted the success of some of the international work and collaborations on the programme – notably The Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra, The Dog Days are Over and Red Earth Revisited.The FringeComedy and theatre continued to dominate the massive Fringe programme, accounting for 38.1% and 25.2% of total Fringe sales respectively.“If you scan the list of top productions on the Fringe it is still dominated by comedy with great performances by Loyiso Gola, Rob van Vuuren in WhatWhat and a series of top-performing productions from the Followspot Collective (Big Boys II, Big Girls and Bon Soir),” Mahomed said. Theatre and dance held their own, however, with Tobacco And The Harmful Effects Thereof, Blue, We Didn’t Come To Hell For The Croissants and Woza Albert! all doing well both critically and at the box office.Lankester pointed to the Festival’s agreement with the National Lottery as a key driver of the success of the Fringe. “Through this partnership we are able to keep the Fringe stage open to all to participate, with a very low economic barrier to entry and with no curation or selection taking place. This makes it the country’s biggest and most democratic stage, and saw around 300 productions and 50 visual artists make the trip to Grahamstown,” he said. “The Fringe is very competitive and, once again, we saw productions that combined excellent work with solid marketing doing the best. This can be a tough but a very useful experience for young theatre practitioners.” Behind the numbers, Lankester pointed to a number of other features of this year’s festival that of which organisers were proud:Growth in the number of tickets sold online and through the festival’s mobile app, which accounted for 22% of all sales this year.The introduction of a free “Festival Hopper” service, run by a local taxi operator, to move festivalgoers between venues more efficiently.The staging of two works (Waltz and Waterline) from Grahamstown community-based companies supported by the festival’s Creative City project and Makana Arts Academy partnership with the European Union, both of which won Standard Bank Ovation Awards.The 28 visiting international producers who used the festival as a “shopping ground” to look for work to tour to their festivals and institutions.Productions from artists emanating from more than 30 countries on the programme – including Angola, Belgium, Senegal, Spain, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, Canada, Colombia, Benin and Zimbabwe.Employment of more than 400 freelance and contract staff, predominantly from the ranks of the unemployed in Grahamstown and student interns, to work across the event in different capacities.“We now get down to planning the 2016 festival, which will run from 30 June until 11 July 2016,” Lankester concluded. “This year will be a tough act to follow, but we’re confident we can rise to the challenge.” The annual National Arts Festival takes place during the winter holiday in the small academic town of Grahamstown, in Eastern Cape. This year it ran from 2 to 12 July.Source: National Arts Festivallast_img read more

Growing apples is a family effort at Springhill Fruit Farm

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Like the core of an apple is at the center of the fruit, family is the core of Springhill Fruit Farm owned by Jeff and Laura Burrer of Shiloh. Named for the fresh water river that feeds the 24-acre Richland County orchard, Springhill Fruit Farm was originally acquired by the Burrer family in 1968.“My dad and mom, Kenneth and Mary Jane Burrer, purchased the orchard from a man named Ray Weaver,” Jeff said. “Ray stayed here for a year and helped my dad learn the ins and outs of an orchard. Prior to that, my dad was a small grain farmer.”Kenneth and Mary Jane raised their five children on the orchard. Out of all the children, it was Jeff that showed the most interest in the orchard. He began running the orchard in 1998 and in 2004, Jeff and his wife Laura purchased Springhill Fruit Farm. Since then, it has really been a family effort to grow and maintain the operation. All three of Jeff and Laura’s children worked on the farm growing up and they still continue to help as adults.“It was such a great place to raise our children,” Laura said. “We get to be with each other and spend a lot of time together, especially in the fall. We can’t imagine not doing this.”Originally when Jeff and Laura purchased Springhill Fruit Farm, they thought it would be more of a side job. They both had full time jobs off the farm, but the orchard continued to increase in business every year. Jeff is now retired from the Shelby Fire Department where he worked for 21 years and Laura is working part time as a registered nurse.“We are super fortunate that our kids all have jobs that allow them to still spend their days off here at the farm helping us,” Laura said.Their son, Ben, is also a full time firefighter, their daughter Mandy is an occupational therapy assistant, and their youngest daughter, Megan, is a flight attendant.“We also feel blessed that our kids are so interested in the farm too and that this is a priority to them,” Laura said. “There is a group of employees that return every year that also become a part of the family. We have an Amish family that helps us every year too.”Although the orchard itself cannot grow in acreage, the Burrers have been focusing on maximizing their productivity on what land they do have. Every other year, they plant about 1,500 new trees to replace older trees.“We are planting semi-dwarf, smaller trees so that we can fit 600 to 800 trees in an area instead of just a couple hundred trees. These big trees here are sometimes 30 to 40 years old and are starting to max out on their production so it’s important for us to keep adding new trees to the orchard,” Jeff said. “Listening to our customers is really important — that’s how we decide what types of trees to plant. Our most popular apple is yellow delicious, so we have enough trees to make about 2,000 bushels of yellow delicious apples. We also planted around 50 new plum trees a few years ago that should be in full production in the next year or two.”The Burrer family built a new pole barn in 2010 that houses the retail store, a 2,500-bushel apple cooler and a work area for sorting and grading apples. They currently grow 27 different varieties of apples, five varieties of peaches, three varieties of plums and three varieties of pears. They also grow nectarines, pumpkins, squash and offer sweet cider made from their apples.“This past growing season has been great for us despite some setbacks. We are expecting a 10,000-bushel crop of apples this year,” Jeff said. “We had a lot of rain in the spring so that caused issues for fruit growers across the whole state with having to battle scab and other diseases. We are fortunate to have had limited insect issues this year though.”Burrer uses integrated pest management systems on the orchard. They set insect traps that are checked every week to monitor populations of harmful bugs. They also promote predatory insects, suchBen Burrer is a full-time firefighter who still helps his parents on the orchard.as spiders, in the orchard to limit insecticide sprayings.“A huge problem we had this year was that we got some major hail in the middle of May. It was a wind driven hail so it was falling almost sideways,” Jeff said. “When we started picking our earlier varieties of apples, only 15% to 20% of what we were picking were good apples. When the hail came in May, the fruit were approximately 3/8 inch in diameter, so the small nicks and cuts on the fruit then grew into some giant holes as the apples got bigger.”The later ripening apples are significantly better than the earlier varieties.“As we are getting later into the season, we only had about 50% of the crop being damaged,” he said. “We just had a lot of cider apples this year and second-grade apples.”The Burrers were pleasantly surprised to see that the peaches faired the best.“We had a very large peach crop this year that were not as affected by the hail damage, so that’s pretty exciting,” Jeff said. “We are having a big apple crop too this year, so if you’re going to have major issues like we did this year, it kind of balances itself out. “The Burrer family sells the majority of their produce in their retail store. Less than 25% of their crops are sold wholesale to local grocery stores and farm markets.“Our farm has a lot of return customers every year and they look forward to coming out and getting fresh apples,” Laura said. “We do a lot of our marketing through Facebook and then every year we send out about 400 letters in the mail letting people know our tentative picking dates for all the apple varieties. Really though, most of our customers hear about us from word of mouth, which is nice because it means that people are talking about us and have good things to say.”Springhill Fruit Farm also values giving back to the community.Megan Burrer works in the sales area that features a wide variety of products.“Community is very important to us and we try to help out as many local organizations as possible. We donate a lot of apples and cider to different church organizations and FFA chapters,” Laura said. “We also donate a lot of apples to local food pantries. People really like to get fresh fruit.”The harvest schedule is rigorous and it has to be timely to maximize the quality of the crop.“Yeah it’s definitely fresh,” Jeff said. “Essentially, our crops own us. If an apple variety is ripe and needs picked, I only have a few days to get that type of apple picked. Peaches are even more finicky, sometimes I only have a one- to two-day window to pick them. It requires a lot of work and sometimes I have to cancel plans, but when the fruit is ready, it’s ready.”Springhill Fruit Farm is open from Mid-August through Thanksgiving annually.“I think it’s important for people to support their local orchards when they get the chance,” Jeff said. “Whether you’re in Ashtabula County or Hamilton County, if you have an orchard in your area you should visit them to buy apples and fruit. Ohio is not an easy place to grow fruit in, so the support means a lot to local farmers.”last_img read more

INDOUS-LAWMAKERS 3 LAST

first_imgFormer Republican presidential candidate and Texas SenatorFormer Republican presidential candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz said Indias status as a rising power will only grow stronger as it continues to pursue political reform and economic liberalisation.”America welcomes this development, as does Texas, which is home to hundreds of thousands of Indian-Americans and hosts a remarkable range of Indian companies and investors. I look forward to strengthening our strategic economic and security relationships in the years to come,” he said.Congressman Jim Costa said a partnership with India brings more opportunities for greater investment in both countries, beneficial trade relationships and more jobs.”Additionally, strong India and US relations will undoubtedly boost our defense strategy to combat terrorism in the Middle East and Asia,” he added.”In the US we know very well that powerful and meaningful change does not happen overnight. It is difficult to rally individuals around progressive ideas even though in hindsight the ideas may not have been progressive but simply common sense,” he said.”While I commend Prime Minister Modi for implementing policies to limit discrimination and promote freedom and equality, I believe that there is much more to be done to strengthen human rights and religious freedoms in India. I am confident that the Administration and Congress will continue to monitor Indias progress to ensure liberty and freedom for all Indian citizens,” Costa said.”India-USA economic ties and people to people cooperation needs to deepen further,” Modi wrote to Congressman Frank Pallone on twitter when the latter used the social media to thank him.advertisement”As Representative of one of Americas largest Indian-American constituencies, Im encouraged by Narendra Modis call to strengthen bonds between US and India,” he said.”Thank you Senator (Ted) Cruz,” Modi said as he retweeted the Texas Senator remarks, “Proud to welcome PM Narendra Modi to Congress today.

Glorious Goodwood 2018 preview: Stradivarius has class to retain Cup

first_imgHorse racing tips Share on LinkedIn Share on Pinterest Topics All that it will be missing, on the first two days at least, will be Frankie Dettori, who will return from suspension on Thursday after two of the week’s three Group One events are already in the form book.Dettori would have been aboard the favourite in the Goodwood Cup on Tuesday, when Stradivarius (3.35) should prevail for the second year running, and the Sussex Stakes the following afternoon, as Without Parole, the St James’s Palace Stakes winner, goes up against Expert Eye, a hugely impressive winner of the Vintage Stakes at this meeting last year.Expert Eye was 10th in the 2,000 Guineas in May but returned to winning form over seven furlongs in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot. His proven form at Goodwood is a positive, but his failure on his only previous start at a mile is a concern and on balance, Without Parole (3.35) looks like the better bet. John Gosden’s colt remains unbeaten after four starts, his Ascot form is backed up by the clock and there is every chance that he will continue to improve.Dettori will return to partner Veracious in Thursday’s Group One Nassau Stakes and she will go to post as one of the favourites despite needing to prove her stamina for 10 furlongs on her first start in all-aged company. She ran well behind Alpha Centauri on her belated seasonal debut at Royal Ascot but at the likely odds, Urban Fox (3.35) is a solid bet at around 3-1 to back up her recent improvement to win the Pretty Polly Stakes.The draw will, as always, prove important in the big-field handicaps but Thomas Cranmer (1.50) remains in top form and will have a big chance in Tuesday’s opener if he gets a single-figure stall.In the Stewards’ Cup, Dreamfield is a worthy favourite and Savalas, still lightly raced and improving fast, one to think about at an each-way price. features The Observer Since you’re here… Share on Facebook Share on WhatsApp After a brief thundery hiatus, the summer’s exceptional heatwave seems likely to resume and for racing the timing could not be better.Goodwood feels anything but glorious when the weather is poor and an abiding memory of last year’s big meeting is the Sussex Stakes, which was won in a downpour by a mud-loving outsider. This year, though, promises a Glorious Goodwood as it should be: sunshine, summer ground and fiercely competitive racing at one of the most spectacular venues any sport can offer.

LB Recruit Dylan Jordan Expected To Make Decision After Nebraska Visit

(Photo by Eric Francis/Getty Images)Kansas doesn’t have the reputation as a huge producer of football talent, which may be part of the reason that linebacker Dylan Jordan flew so far under the radar.Even so, as we approach National Signing Day, Jordan has seen things really ramp up in his recruitment as of late.Jordan only recently received rankings from 247Sports.He is a three-star recruit, and the No. 1073 player overall in the class of 2019.The site also has him listed at No. 74 among outside linebackers and No. 8 in Kansas.Those numbers may seem a bit low, given the programs that have come in to land him late in this cycle. Over the last two weekends, he has visited Utah and TCU.This weekend, Dylan Jordan will be making a trip to Nebraska football, as previously scheduled.He confirmed the trip after having Huskers head coach Scott Frost and defensive coordinator Erik Chinander in for a home visit.Thanks @HuskerFBNation for stopping by today! Excited to see campus this weekend on my OV!!?⚪️? #gbr #blackshirtnation pic.twitter.com/6PxOLxfkRf— DJ3️⃣ (@thedylanjordan_) January 21, 2019On Monday, Jordan announced that he will make his announcement next Monday, after returning from Lincoln.I will be shutting down my recruitment a week from today at 5 p.m.! HUGE thanks to all the coaches that have recruited me! Excited to see what my future holds! #AGTG????— DJ3️⃣ (@thedylanjordan_) January 21, 2019That has to be good news for the Huskers, who will get the last shot to impress the linebacker. Other schools like Auburn, Kansas, and Kansas State were reportedly involved as well, but won’t be getting visits.last_img read more

NCSC to Launch Series of Retirement Planning Seminars

first_img The National Council for Senior Citizens (NCSC) will be launching its second annual series of retirement planning seminars, at the Cardiff Hall Hotel in Runaway Bay, St. Ann, on Thursday, August 15, starting at 9:30 a.m.The seminars will be held islandwide from August 16 to 22, and will feature a number of presentations, intended to educate and assist persons to set and achieve realistic goals and objectives for the future.Themed: ‘Retirement is a process, not an Event – Be Prepared’, the seminars are aimed at encouraging persons in the informal sector of the society to start planning for their retirement years while working.“We are targeting persons in the informal sector, including farmers, dressmakers, tailors, hairdressers, vendors, musicians, housewives, domestic workers, landscapers and barbers. We have found  that the mass proportion of this group do not plan for their retirement, so we hope to create a change in behaviour with the sessions, so that these persons can start planning for their retirement,” Executive Director of the NCSC, Charmaine Muirhead told JIS News.She added that the seminars will also provide the appropriate platform for citizens to look at their lives, and see how best they can make them more meaningful, as they grow older.“We will be providing participants with relevant information that will allow them to shape their lives in a more positive manner, so that they will be able to face the future more confidently. We are targeting both the young and the old, because as soon as persons reach the age of 18 they should start planning for their retirement, so that they can enjoy it in a better manner,” she emphasised.Mrs. Muirhead is encouraging youngsters to educate themselves on all that they can do for their retirement years, because proper retirement planning involves choosing the best possible option, which should start as early as persons obtain their first job.She also implored persons who are approaching retirement to start getting ready, and for those who already have their retirement plans in place, to just endorse the event, and be aware of other existing options.Highlighting the theme, the Executive Director is also urging the target group, persons 18 to 55 years, to start contributing to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), so that they can reap the benefits in the future.She stressed that this is important, because as persons get older, they develop certain illnesses, and require various medications, that are sometimes very costly.“This can be less burdensome if the necessary plans are put in place now, which will guarantee ease of financial burden, health wise, among other benefits,” she said.For additional information on the seminars, persons can contact the nearest NIS parish office or the NCSC at 926-2374 or 906-9277-8.

Iraj Weeraratnes controversial new song under fire

The Sunday Leader contacted Iraj Weeraratne for a comment but the comment was not received by the time this newspaper went to press.Iraj has in recent times released music videos which have mostly drawn controversy and at the same time resulted in bringing his videos several hits.The music producer has however been accused of making videos with content termed as ‘sexual’ and not suitable for local television. (Colombo Gazette) Meanwhile actress and model Piumi Hansamali, who appears in the video as the young girl, said that the video is being unfairly attacked. She told The Sunday Leader the music video and the song is a nice love story and she saw nothing wrong in appearing on it.Piumi Hansamali also said that she has immense respect for Victor Ratnayake and even listens to his music.“This music video is not an attempt to sling mud at anyone,” she asserted. The actress also notes that she does not appear nude on the video and so there is nothing to be ashamed of since she feels she has done no wrong. Iraj’s new video seemed to give a different interpretation of Ratnayake’s personal life and it was not well received by senior local artistes or his family.Ratnayake’s son Jayantha Ratnayake told The Sunday Leader that the music video has been given publicity by ‘foolish’ electronic media and print media.He said he has no intention of making a comment on the video as he feels Iraj Weeraratne is not an artiste. In the music video, the family of the older man express outrage at their father deciding to marry a The concern is that the video looks at the personal life of Victor Ratnayake. The artiste had recently married a young girl and the story went viral on social media.The marriage between Victor Ratnayake and his young wife was not welcome by his family but Ratnayake defended his new found love. The video shows some sensual scenes between the man and girl as well as incidents seemingly related to a real life story.   The video has recorded over 1.8 million hits on YouTube but has also been the subject of an attack on social media. Iraj Weeraratne’s new song “Danuna” has drawn flak after it seemed to reflect the recent developments in the life of veteran artiste Victor Ratnayake.The music video shows an older man played by actor Wilson Karu falling in love with a young girl played by Piumi Hansamali after his wife passes away. read more

Commentary Reds Indians managers produce same results with different styles

Courtesy of MCTBoth the Cleveland and Cincinnati baseball organizations have managers that are familiar with winning. Although the two men have different managing techniques, they both seem to know which buttons to push. Cleveland’s Terry Francona’s loose way of orchestrating seems to fit his team’s persona. On the other hand, Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker’s calm approach to guiding a team appears to work, but has not gotten his team over the hump to win a championship.It is not farfetched to believe the Indians can win a championship with Francona at the helm. The former Boston manager won two titles with the Red Sox, one where his team defeated the Tribe in the American League Championship Series before winning it all in 2007.With a little over half of his first season as the Tribe’s manager under his belt, Francona has seen a fair amount of success with his new team. The Indians are second in the division, trailing the Tigers by 2.5 games. In recent years, the Indians have been in this identical position leading up to the All-Star break, but then find themselves in the back of the pack by season’s end. With the way the season has gone so far, it’s looking more and more like Francona has a formula that will keep his team in the playoff race into September.Cleveland’s skipper has a bit of a loose approach when it comes to managing. He likes his players to have fun on the field, and his loose personality appears to be working well with the team’s character. An example of Francona’s easy going style came before the start of the season when the team took part in the nationwide craze of making a “Harlem Shake” dance video.Although Cleveland has gone through a few managers over the past ten seasons the Reds have not, as Baker is in his six straight year with the organization.Although some may want Baker out of Cincinnati, no one can complain about him leading his ball club to two division titles in the last three years. The Reds won their division both in 2010 and again in 2012. Before the 2010 season, the only time Cincinnati had won the central division was in 1995. That year also marks the last year the Reds made the playoffs prior to the Baker era. He has turned the franchise into a consistent playoff contender.As great as it is that Baker has won division titles in Cincinnati, the higher goal is to get deep into the playoffs and win a World Series. The last two playoff appearances for the Reds have been the opposite of that. In 2010, Cincinnati was swept in three games in the divisional series against Philadelphia. The 2012 squad had a 2-0 lead on San Francisco before losing the next three games at home in the divisional series. Baker has been an outstanding manager in regards to getting his teams to the playoffs, but the playoff appearances are short-lived.Baker’s managing style is mainly laid back and relaxed, though there are times where he gets intense and wears his emotions on his sleeve. How the squad is this season, he may have to be more forward than usual in order to get his team on a roll. This 2013 team appears to be the type needing a constant push, seeming to have no sense of urgency. During one of the club’s more recent hitting slumps, second baseman Brandon Phillips said they would eventually get out of it. Baker needs to be more assertive and tell his players that eventually is not good enough.Both managers have the makeup of bringing championships to their respective cities. With this being Francona’s first year in Cleveland, he has a couple seasons to prove himself. Baker does not have that luxury with this being his sixth year in Cincinnati.The rest of the season is important to both franchises and managers as each are making a playoff push. read more

first_imgLumia Coffee Tab : une tablette inspirée des Windows Phone de NokiaLes smartphones Lumia de Nokia ont inspiré à des graphistes l’idée d’une tablette tactile. Baptisée Lumia Coffee Tab, elle reprend la forme du Lumia 800 et fonctionne avec Windows 8. Un concept qui s’il était développé, rencontrerait sans aucun doute un certain succès.Des images d’une tablette baptisée Lumia Coffee Tab circulent sur la toile. Si la rumeur évoque depuis un moment la prochaine arrivée d’une tablette Nokia sur le marché, ces photos n’émanent pas de la firme finlandaise, mais de l’imagination de graphistes, qui se sont inspirés des Windows Phone Lumia pour donner naissance à une concept de tablette tactile.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le terminal imaginé reprend les bases esthétiques du Lumia 800. Dotée d’un écran AMOLED 9.7 pouces d’une résolution 1280 x 800 pixels, la tablette embarquerait Windows 8. Elle serait équipée d’un processeur cadencé à 1.4GHz, de 512Mo de RAM, et offrirait de 16 Go de mémoire interne. Avec un capteur 8 megapixels au dos, et un autre frontal de 2 megapixels, mais aussi ses connectivités WiFi, Bluetooth et 3G : le concept de la Lumia Coffee Tab, présenté sur le site Mynokiablog, à de quoi séduire.Il nous donne une idée de ce que pourrait être la première tablette tactile de Nokia si la firme finlandaise entend, comme la rumeur l’affirme, se lancer à son tour sur le marché, pour l’heure dominé par Apple et Samsung.Le 13 février 2012 à 10:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Astronomers Finally Understand 170YearOld Stellar Eruption

first_img Data collected from the Gemini South telescope in Chile has shed light on a nearly-200-year-old stellar eruption.Gemini spectroscopy shows that ejected material from the blast was the fastest ever seen from a star that remained intact.Imagine traveling from Earth to the Moon in 20 seconds. That is how quickly material from the 170-year-old explosion scurried away from unstable star Eta Carinae, according to the Gemini Observatory.A team of astronomers—led by Nathan Smith of the University of Arizona and Armin Rest from the Space Telescope Science Institute—spent seven years studying the outburst.They were able to determine its degree of intensity by observing “light echoes” from the star and its surroundings.These so-called echoes occur when light from bright, short-lived events is reflected off dust clouds, which act as distant mirrors; like audio echoes, luminescence also returns with a delay (due to the finite speed of light).In the case of the Eta Carinae, that bright, short-lived event was a major flare-up of the star in the mid-1800s, during what is known as the “Great Eruption.”An artist’s conception of the expanding blast wave from Eta Carinae’s 1843 eruption (via Gemini Observatory/AURA/NSF/Lynette Cook)We’ve come a long way in terms of technological advancements since then. And scientists were able to use modern tools to decode light echoes from the 19th-century episode.“A light echo is the next best thing to time travel. That’s why [they] are so beautiful,” Smith said in a statement. “They give us a chance to unravel the mysteries of a rare stellar eruption that was witness 170 years ago, but using our modern telescopes and cameras.“This was a behemoth stellar explosion from a very rare monster star,” he added, “the likes of which has not happened since in our Milky Way.”Eta Carinae is a type of star known as a Luminous Blue Variable (LBV), located some 7,500 light years from Earth. One of the intrinsically brightest stars in our galaxy, it shines 5 million times brighter than our Sun, with a mass about 100 times greater.In its heyday, Eta Carinae was the second brightest star visible in the night sky, outshining every other burning ball of light in the galaxy.“We see these really high velocities all the time in supernova explosions where the star is obliterated,” Smith said, revealing that Eta Carinae’s miraculous survival led researchers into uncharted territory.“Something must have dumped a lot of energy into the star in a short amount of time,” he added.The most straightforward way to explain the situation, according to the group, is with an interaction of three stars—including a dramatic event where two merged into one monster astronomical object.Eta Carinae will likely undergo a true supernova explosion sometime in the next half-million years, the Observatory reported, suggesting that it could blow sooner rather than later.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Increased speed and security to help manage continuing passenger growt

first_imgIncreased speed and security to help manage continuing passenger growthAbu Dhabi Airports announced it will deploy a new traveler document authentication system using boarding pass validation technology from air transport IT specialist, SITA. Airport iValidate will enhance security, accelerate passenger processing and reduce waiting times for passengers by automatically verifying all types of boarding passes, including mobile boarding passes and home-printed passes. The use of iValidate at Abu Dhabi International Airport will be the first deployment of the product in the Middle East.The airport’s Traveler Document Authentication System using SITA’s Airport iValidate ensures passengers are at the correct terminal and security checkpoint, and enables them to present their barcode boarding passes either on paper or on their mobile phones.  The data is automatically validated, checked for duplicates and cross-referenced against the Airport Operational Database and the airline’s Departure Control System. The information is then displayed to the security agent on an intuitive graphical user interface in a matter of seconds.Ahmad Al Haddabi, Chief Operations Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Deploying such an advanced technology is a further demonstration of Abu Dhabi Airports’ determination to use the very best the market has to offer. Effectively managing the balance between continuous passenger flow and stringent security measures is a fundamental part of our operations, and the task is even more important in view of our continued growth.“With this new technology verifying passenger documentation will be done quickly and efficiently, while at the same time improving the passenger experience. This is all part of our ongoing programme to deliver a smooth flowing airport that affords passengers sufficient comfort and time to enjoy all the facilities on offer.”Hani El-Assaad, President, Middle East, India and Africa, SITA, said: “It’s always a challenge to maintain the right balance between speed, efficiency and security. We also know that airports typically make around one-third of their revenue from retail, and there is a very clear correlation between moving passengers quickly through airport security and retail spend. SITA’s Airport iValidate is designed to work hand in hand with security at Abu Dhabi International to help them enhance the passenger experience.”The Airport iValidate system, which will be in place by June 2015, will include four security lanes with automatic gates, four mobile/paper boarding pass scanners and four hand-held wireless boarding pass scanners.The system will initially be deployed in Terminal 3 economy, followed by the Terminal 3 business area. It will also be implemented in both economy and business in Terminal 1. SITA on-site staff will support and maintain the Airport iValidate system, with the same stringent Service Level Agreements the company provides for other systems in the airport.SITA Source = SITAlast_img read more

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah pioneers turtle rehabilitation sets an example for the

first_imgBurj Al Arab Jumeirah not only cuts a stunning silhouette against the skyline of the Emirate of Dubai, but the international luxury hospitality chain is also a pioneer in driving unique environmental changes. A case in point is the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project (DTRP) that they have undertaken, in collaboration with Dubai’s Wildlife Protection Office.Conceptualised and conceived in 2004, shortly after the Wildlife Protection Office was bombarded with rescue requests from members of the public, DTRP now has a team of seven working dedicatedly for turtle rehabilitation. The team receives regular veterinary assistance from Dubai Falcon Hospital and the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory and has released 1,700 turtles including Hawksbill, Green, Loggerhead and Olive Ridleys to the ocean. Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has left no stone unturned in aiding the project and employs an animal husbandry team that is devoted to taking care of all the rescued turtles. These turtles are brought in by organisations focussed on turtle conservation and rehabilitation.  With only 8,000 nesting females across all seven species of marine turtles left worldwide, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has undertaken a task which not many would dare to. No wonder then, the DTRP is the only committed rehabilitation project in all of the Middle East and the Red Sea region. To drive home a wholesome project, the team also encourages interested hotel guests to take part in turtle feeding, learning about turtles and indigenous fishes from the lagoon’s discovery trail and observation island. Children from primary and secondary schools are also given educational tours of the facility. Gerhard Beukes, Director of Aquarium Operations and Animal Husbandry, The Aquarium & Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project, The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah expressed, “As a global hospitality brand, our primary business goal is to multiply occupancy rates across our properties, however, we must also have the bandwidth to measure and control the impact that heavy tourist inflow might cause on the neighbouring environment.  Further, we should appoint dedicated teams to design plans for safeguarding the local communities wherein we operate and also collaborate for environmental projects to ensure a healthy ecosystem.Alongside undertaking initiatives, educating and training each staff, employees, stakeholders and even tourists about the pressing issues concerning our sustenance is mandatory. We must also set examples with our result driven activities and encourage others to be environmentally conscious individuals and entities.”In fact, DTRP is not the only project undertaken by Burj Al Arab towards its goal of attaining sustainable tourism. Jumeirah Saadiyet Island resort provides complimentary reusable plastic bottles to all guests, encourages them to refill locally-filtered water and serves water in glass bottles, thereby completely eliminating single-use plastic items. In the era of a global tourism boom, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has turned over a green leaf and remains committed to being leaders in ecotourism with a focus on reducing its overall carbon footprint, optimising the use of natural resources and sustaining the quality of natural, built and cultural environment.last_img read more

ourselves and our institutions in their comic aspects and not to take ourselves too seriously Prof Mushirul Hasans fascinating bookWit and Wisdom: Pickings from the Parsee Punchmentions that Parsee Punch was published in July 1854 and was the only illustrated comic weekly paper in the Bombay Presidency It contained 12 pages of cartoons which poked fun at the British ruling class and political leaders of the times both in India and in the UK The cartoons were taken in the right spirit No cartoonist or editor or journalist was jailed The US Library of Congress has one of the worlds largest collections of cartoons There is a famous book containing cartoons of lawyers who are not always portrayed in a flattering manner but mercifully no lawyer so far has gone on strike I have critically seen the cartoon made in 1969 Significantly neither Nehru nor Amedkar objected There is nothing objectionable at all if you see the cartoon along with the text which indeed is appreciative of the arduous task entrusted to Dr Ambedkar of framing Free Indias constitution At the worstit conveys that Nehru was impatient with the slow process of constitution making and urged Ambedkar to speed up the process The most disappointing aspect of the cartoon episode is that Minister Kapil Sibala cultured broad-minded persontendered an apology which was not required and thereby indirectly put an imprimatur on the intolerant demands of certain groups for deletion of cartoons What has come over us Have we completely lost the faculty of humour And remember that a person without humour is one without a sense of proportion What is most worrying is the underlying intolerant mindset Anything critical or unpalatable has to be banned The entire episode about deletion of the cartoon and setting up a so-called expert committee to decide about further deletions of cartoons is a crude onslaught on the freedom of expression by yielding to the sentiments of hypersensitive people who perceive hurt
