Demystifying affordability part two: An automated and layered approach

first_imgAutomated, non-intrusive affordability checks conducted at this initial stage can be used by operators as a first screening tool to gauge an individual’s affordability and then, where necessary, escalate to more invasive manual checks where they are needed most. Email Address Demystifying affordability part two: An automated and layered approach With operators now being required to consider customer affordability earlier in the customer journey, it’s important to ensure that any interactions, such as setting limits, are applied as close to instantly as possible. This is to ensure operators both fulfill the requirements of the Commission – to implement real-time protection through auto-measures – but also ensure frictionless onboarding for the customer.  Interactions based on affordability The importance of automating affordability processes To bring this to life, beBettor provides operators with discretionary income estimates for each customer.  If a customer was estimated to be able to afford to spend £500 on gambling per month, operators could set an initial net deposit limit for that customer at that amount. In its guidance for remote operators during Covid-19, released in May 2020, the Gambling Commission reiterated its customer interaction process for operators to follow: ‘Identify, Interact and Evaluate’ Sonny COtt | by www.andynewbold.com The Commission, in its remote customer Interaction consultation, outlined that while operators have the capability to identify customers who may be harmed by gambling, evidence showed that often they are too slow to act and do so at a level which does not reflect the level of potential harm at stake. Therefore, it’s important for operators to have an affordability framework that includes both initial and enhanced affordability assessments, to protect both the mass market customer and those who wish to spend more. 27th April 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Affordability Thresholds The benefits to be gained with automated checks are not only meeting the regulator’s expectation, but also in efficiency. If implemented correctly, not only can this ensure compliance, but it can also reduce painstaking hours of manual due diligence and customer interactions. If that customer then wanted to increase that limit, an operator could then conduct further checks to ensure they could afford a higher level of spend without experiencing harm. In the same way customer interaction frameworks are required to escalate the strength of interaction where deemed necessary, operators should take a risk-based approach and escalate the level of affordability assessment at different stages in the customer journey. As such, some operators are already including affordability at the earliest stages of the customer relationship, during the customer onboarding process with initial non-intrusive affordability checks on registration or first deposit.  “Operators should certainly be gathering data throughout the life of the customer relationship, starting from the point of registration which should be able to assist with a consideration of whether a customer is gambling within their means,” it said. Non-intrusive checks designed for assessing affordability at the beginning of the customer journey can be conducted seamlessly in the background, but more invasive checks requiring more sensitive financial information may be conducted later on in the customer journey or when the customer wants to increase their level of spend. Resource efficiency  A layered approach Regions: UK & Ireland For those matching derogatory data registers, such as those listed as insolvent, stronger interactions may be conducted earlier in the journey. But even for other customers, an affordability estimate can act as a measure which triggers automated interactions. Instant checks These non-intrusive affordability checks are best suited to screen an operator’s customer base and identify those who may experience gambling-related harm, as they can be conducted in the background, without friction or disruption to the customer. First, operators should identify customers who may be at risk of experiencing harms that are associated with gambling. Then they should interact with customers in a way which minimises the risk of customers experiencing harms. From that point, it is then for the operator to understand the impact of the interaction on the customer and the effectiveness of the operator’s actions and approach.  Enhanced assessments could be through further open source data checks like search engines or social media).  Many checks that were conducted relied solely on manual actions, with interactions occurring hours or days after required, potentially seen as too late as the customer may already be experiencing gambling related harm. An important part of this process is to integrate suitable auto-measures into the responsible gaming framework to identify early on those who may be vulnerable to experiencing gambling related harm. Affordability is an integral part of that early screening, and so operators need robust automated affordability controls. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter As well as assisting operators in meeting the required regulatory standards, and ensuring player protection is tailored to the individual, a layered approach to affordability is also resource-efficient for operators. Enhanced affordability assessments  The stage at which a check is conducted, and ultimately the risk posed to the customer, will determine the invasiveness of the check. Early-stage affordability assessments also inform where further, more invasive, costly and time consuming checks are required. This means operators are able to allocate more resources to customers who need them most, as opposed to applying costly and invasive checks to all their customers. A recent report, commissioned by GambleAware to investigate online patterns of play, found that the majority of revenue for remote gambling operators came from the highest spending 5% of accounts.  Proposed changes could see the regulator prescribe set thresholds for operators to conduct affordability checks with a threshold conceivably set as low as £100. An enhanced experience In the context of affordability, the Gambling Commission suggested thresholds for customer interactions have been set too high and at unrealistic levels (the Gambling Commission advises any affordability thresholds set above £2,000 are inappropriate). By automating this process operators will also be able to create a clear audit trail which can be used to explain the treatment of customers to the regulator. Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Tech & innovation Uncategorized Regulation Regtech It’s important for operators to now consider affordability early in the customer journey: not only to meet the requirements of the GC, but also to create a more personalised experience for the customer. Considering affordability earlier in the journey enriches the data that you have on that customer, allowing for interactions that are suitable for the individual as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach. This can result in the customer at times being unwilling to provide this information and instead choosing to take their custom elsewhere, thus not addressing the problem but spreading their problem gambling among multiple operators or worse, to the black market where protections are lacking. However, the GC goes further than that:  These interactions come in various forms, including safer gambling messaging, “reality checks” showing how much money has been lost, or in the form of limits. In the remote customer interaction consultation, the Gambling Commission refers to operators applying a ‘handbrake’ or ‘hard stop’ at a certain threshold to prevent gambling beyond a point until it has been proven a customer can safely gamble beyond this limit. Regtech Alternatively, it could be through information collected directly from the customer; such as through income and expenses questionnaires; or, verified Source of Funds or Source of Wealth documentation like bank statements or payslips. However, while this may be a more accurate level of assessment, this comes at the cost of being invasive of customer privacy, inconvenient to the customer and requiring the sharing of potentially sensitive financial data.  For if these checks were conducted manually and couldn’t be delivered in real time, it could cause unnecessary inconvenience to the player at this early stage. Once both the affordability checks and customer interactions have been conducted, it’s important for operators to record how they’ve interacted with customers. Automating early stage affordability assessments means operators will be able to relieve pressure on compliance teams, avoiding undertaking lengthy manual checks for high volumes of customers.  With information from the initial affordability assessment, operators can identify those who require additional and more enhanced checks. This can occur when a customer breaches an initial spending limit or if they display other indicators of harm.  As these checks are based primarily on open data, customers aren’t required to hand over highly sensitive financial information like bank statements or p60s. The first article of the ‘Demystifying Affordability’ series set the context for affordability in Great Britain. This piece will look at why it is important for operators to automate their affordability process and adopt a layered approach, while the next piece will look at some common concerns and misconceptions that exist around affordability. Automating checks to be conducted upon set thresholds means operators can conduct a high volume of checks early in the customer journey and deliver them in real-time, which can then lead to tailored future automated interactions. This means that those who may be vulnerable to harm receive increased protections while those who are gambling within their means are receiving protected yet uninterrupted play, creating a better customer experience.

The Championship Blog: Week 5

first_imgLONDON, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 03: Mike Powell of Moseley RFC during the 2013/14 Greene King IPA Championship Launch at St Margarets Pub on September 03, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images) To lose one point may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness. Following the RFU’s recent disciplinary hearing, Chairman of Jersey Rugby Club, Bill Dempsey, said: “… we feel we had a constructive and fair hearing and will now look to move forward.”Jersey RFC pleaded guilty to a breach of RFU Regulation 2.4, and in addition to being docked two valuable points, the club were fined £5,000.Things got worse for the Channel Islanders when they went down 18-23 to Albion at St Peter on Saturday. Tom Brown’s 74th minute try was scant reward for wave after wave of attack while the visitors were reduced to 14 men, but ultimately Jersey had to settle for a losing bonus point.Plymouth’s second Championship win lifts them into seventh slot.London Scottish 23, Rotherham 24A fine second half performance yielded a brace of tires from Titans’ hooker Tom Cruse and keeps the Yorkshire outfit in second place.The Exiles head coach, James Buckland was generous in defeat, saying that  second-placed Rotherham are worthy of their position in the league: “They played with confidence, scored two good tries and were very physical.”Ups and downs so far in the Championship: Moseley RFCMoseley 18, Leeds 27Moseley’s miserable season continues with their fourth GKIPA Championship defeat, this time at the hands of Leeds, at Billesley Common, on Saturday.Moseley were in the hunt trailing 11-15 at the turnaround, but Carnegie pulled away after the break with tries from David Doherty and Jonah Holmes adding to first half scores from Phil Nilsen and former Moseley man Glyn Hughes. This bonus point win keeps Leeds in fourth slot. The Greene King IPA Championship: After a fortnight of British and Irish Cup distraction the league is backBy Richard GraingerIf Bristol Director of Rugby Andy Robinson was disappointed about his side’s second-half performance against Nottingham on Sunday, he will be even more frustrated by a careless breach of regulations leading to the deduction of one point.Bristol 33, Nottingham 18Shouting the odds: Andy Robinson talks to his chargesIn front of a crowd of over 5,000 at the Memorial Stadium on Sunday, Bristol capitalised on weak Nottingham defence, and their failure to convert opportunities, with a brace of tries each from George Watkins and Tristan Roberts, and a try from Ben Mosses.Bristol secured the bonus point by the interval but failed to press home their superiority over the Green and Whites, who did the double over their hosts last season.“We have to kick on and be more ruthless,” said Robinson. He added: “Bristol do not want to be in the Championship next season, we aspire to play to a Premiership standard. That performance was not a Premiership performance, and that’s where we need to be.”Bristol fell foul of the RFU’s Regulation 3.4(c) by having15 men on the pitch instead of 14 for nine minutes following a yellow card during their 45-27 win over Bedford earlier this month. The club is considering appealing the judgment.Bedford Blues 31, Ealing Trailfinders 14What a difference a win makes! Bedford, winless in the Greene King IPA Championship before Sunday, have jumped from the bottom of the pile to eighth place, thanks to a bonus point win over hapless Ealing.However, Andrew Henderson and Morgan Thompson scored first-half tries for the visitors to give the Trailfinders a 12-14 interval lead at Goldington Road in front of the Sky Sport cameras and a full-house on Sunday.But the Blues, equally desperate for a first GKIPA Championship win and to break a run of five televised defeats, hit back after the break with a brace of tries from James Pritchard and a Michael Le Bourgeois try to add to Ollie Dodge’s first half pair.Jersey 18, Plymouth Albion 23 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS London Welsh 41, Cornish Pirates 6Finally, division favourites London Welsh dispatched the Cornish Pirates with clinical precision to notch a five-try bonus point win at the Kassam Stadium in front of a meagre 1,200-strong crowd on Saturday night. The Pirates last outing at the Kassam was in the second leg of the 2011-12 Championship final, when they lost 29-20. This win keeps the Exiles three points clear at the top of the pile.last_img read more

Player suffers horrific injury as boot slices through his scalp

first_imgFriday Mar 29, 2019 Player suffers horrific injury as boot slices through his scalp A Randalstown Rugby Club flanker suffered a horrific head injury this week, leading to him stopping with rugby immediately and urging all other rugby players to consider the benefits of using head gear when playing. WARNING: The following images are graphic so please be warned and click away now if you’d rather not see an open head wound. ADVERTISEMENTJust ten minutes into a vital Kukri Championship 2 league game against Clogher Valley on Tuesday, Randalstown flanker Kyle Hetherington says he got into an awkward position in a tackle and the opposition player’s boot sliced right down the side of his head.“I put my hand on my head then I started going into shock a bit… I can remember the screams to stop the game from the opposition players,” 27-year-old Kyle told us.The boot sliced through his scalp, causing immediate concern on the field. He says he lost a huge amount of blood and nearly passed out a few times.After being treated, he had received 20 staples, 4 stitches beneath the surface, and 4 stitches over. He also had paper stitches on his eyebrow.Hetherington says that he has decided to retire from rugby, after having now permanantly lost feeling in that part of his skull.ADVERTISEMENT“It scared the shit out of me to be honest. I literally thought I was going to die every time I almost passed out because of the amount of blood I lost! I was very unwell at the time. And the fact that I have lost feeling in my head has freaked me out.”While he says that he doesn’t know if the other player was using blades or had metal studs on his boots, he now strongly advises players to consider using scrum caps.“I am now an advocate for scrum caps. I think the way it happened, any stud or blade could have done that damage. I think its important to see why head gear is important. I had never seen the importance, now im trying to get everyone to wear one. With a scrum cap this wouldn’t have happened.”ADVERTISEMENTOn hanging up his boots, he said he’s not upset but disappointed that he didn’t go out on his own terms.“I always knew it would be a major injury that would finish me. I have had broken noses, wrists and thumbs this past year alone, and I keep coming back.“I still love the sport and always will. I’ll be down watching tomorrow and next Wednesday night to see the season close and I’ll do the same next year. My mind is made up but would love to get into coaching.”We wish Kyle all the best with his recovery!

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.Save this picture!© John ClarkSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Tim BiesThree sides of the house consist of high-efficiency glass framed with steel; on the north is a solid exterior wall. Inside the transparent shell, living, eating, and sleeping areas surround an enclosure that contains the bathroom, study, and storage. The house rests on a concrete slab supported on a concrete foundation. In this way, the heat-absorbing and—releasing thermal mass is isolated from the ground plane. The window system combines transparency with energy-efficiency. Heat loss and gain is managed largely by the orientation of the house: on the south side, an eyebrow, or light shelf, deflects midday summer sun but admits low-angle winter sunlight.Save this picture!© Tim BiesProject gallerySee allShow lessConstruction Begins on Project to Transform Railway Hangar into a Mixed-Use Library …Unbuilt ProjectWorld Architecture Festival Announces the 2017 Awards ‘Super Jury’Architecture News Share Area:  1440 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  Glass Farmhouse / Olson Kundig ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/871806/glass-farmhouse-olson-kundig Clipboard Save this picture!© Tim Bies Share CopyAbout this officeOlson KundigOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsIndustrial ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 22, 2017Cite: “Glass Farmhouse / Olson Kundig” 22 May 2017.

Bryant Arroyo: Desde el interior de una prisión

first_imgJoe Piette, Bryant Arroyo y Ted Kelly1ra ParteIncluso desde los confines de una institución correccional estatal en la zona rural de Pensilvania, Bryant Arroyo está en movimiento. Solo en los últimos meses, ha hablado en la Universidad de Harvard y en el Colegio Haverford, testificó en una mesa redonda en Filadelfia sobre las condiciones de las prisiones, y fue el orador principal en el Foro Ambiental de Yale.“¡Estoy de gira!”, Exclamó Bryant en una de nuestras recientes conversaciones telefónicas.Esa conversación, como todos los discursos que ofrece en vivo desde una cabina telefónica de la prisión, se interrumpe de manera intermitente con un monótono mensaje pregrabado: “Esta es una llamada del Departamento de Correcciones de Pensilvania …”.Las llamadas se desconectan después de quince minutos. En el evento de mesa redonda en Filadelfia, Bryant solo pudo responder una pregunta del grupo antes de cortarse la llamada. Es por eso que su discurso de Yale fue pregrabado y subido a PrisonRadio.org, donde se pueden escuchar muchas de sus charlas. Cada grabación contiene una voz que es reflexiva y deliberada al enunciar una oratoria altamente poética.En persona, Bryant es enérgico y hablador. Su comportamiento jovial no está restringido por ese uniforme marrón que se ve obligado a usar. De vez en cuando hace una pausa.Fue durante una de esas pausas, mientras hablaba de las “distracciones y divisiones” que impiden que nuestra clase se organice, que Bryant se acerca y puntualiza:“Odio decírtelo, pero tú también estás en prisión”.No se está refiriendo al hecho de que Joe Piette y yo estamos sentados con él en la sala de visitas de SCI Frackville, donde Bryant está cumpliendo una sentencia de cadena perpetua sin libertad condicional por un crimen que no cometió. (Él todavía está luchando para revocar esta condena injusta).Nos sentamos en la cámara repleta de prisioneros junto a sus visitantes. Algunos almuerzan con sus hijos y nietos. Otros están sentados en silencio, frente a una pared en blanco, juntos, los brazos entrelazados con los de su cónyuge. Es un domingo por la mañana. Estos seres queridos entregan las llaves de su auto y billeteras, vacían sus bolsillos y cruzan voluntariamente el umbral cercado que separa a los “libres” de aquellos en ­cautiverio.La persona que vinimos a ver es un puertorriqueño que creció en Lancaster, Pensilvania. Su padre era dueño de una bodega que les fue arrebatada por los acaparadores de tierras cuando Bryant era un niño. Su familia quedó batallando por una fuente constante de ingresos. Cuando se suponía que estuviera en décimo grado, Bryant había abandonado la escuela para buscar trabajo.Habla apasionadamente sobre las lecciones que su padre le enseñó sobre los clientes de la tienda de comestibles, muchos de los cuales eran desesperadamente pobres, con discapacidades y ancianos. “Los tratamos con respeto cuando entran en esta tienda”, insistía el padre de Bryant, independientemente de los antecedentes de la persona. “Les servimos a ellos y ellos nos sirven”, decía, señalando la lámpara en el techo, un recordatorio de cómo se pagaban las facturas.Bryant no duda en nombrar a las personas que crearon las condiciones de indigencia y miseria en su comunidad. ­Bryant los llama “los invasores corporativos”.Cuando dice: “Odio decírtelo”, está hablando sobre el poder en nuestra sociedad. El pueblo no lo tiene. Los invasores corporativos nos lo han arrebatado.Raíces de la luchaHabiendo pasado un cuarto de siglo tras las rejas, Bryant Arroyo sabe lo que es experimentar impotencia. Él es uno de las 2,2 millones de personas que están encarceladas en este momento por el gobierno de los Estados Unidos y, por lo tanto, es miembro del sector más oprimido de la clase trabajadora en este país. Él describe la posición del prisionero como “completamente indigente”.Este es un claro eco de la plataforma política de que “las cárceles son campos de concentración para los pobres”, que resuena de un momento de la historia en que el Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero mantenía activo un Comité de Solidaridad con Prisioneros. Este comité era tan organizado y respetado entre los reclusos que en septiembre de 1971 fue invitado a enviar un representante al patio de la prisión de Ática para ayudar a los rebeldes a negociar sus demandas.Es un evento que el Primer Secretario del PWW-MO Larry Holmes describió como “el momento de la Comuna de París del Movimiento de Liberación Negra”. Las demandas de Ática incluían el derecho a un sindicato, capacitación vocacional, escalas salariales, una semana laboral de horario limitado, atención médica y compensación por lesiones – en realidad ser considerados trabajadores. “Este es un problema de clase”, decía la declaración de Ática.En su discurso al Foro Ambiental de Yale, Bryant comenzó:“Mientras luchamos para poner a las personas, y no a las corporaciones, a cargo de nuestras vidas y gobernanza, que buscamos victorias reales y sostenibles para alcanzar esa meta, es vital que vinculemos nuestra disidencia, nuestras estrategias y nuestra visión a sus raíces”.Advierte que cualquier acción que esté “insuficientemente informada de la historia y la cosmovisión que nos trajo a nuestro presente, agotará nuestras energías y recompensará débilmente nuestras esperanzas”. En el crítico trabajo de terminar con el dominio corporativo y construir la democracia, siempre debemos estar en contra de la amenaza del des radicalismo.“Estas estrategias deben reflejar una comprensión del estado actual de derecho que nos pone a nosotros, las personas, subordinadas a los propietarios, organizados en sus formas corporativas, y deben reflejar nuestro compromiso a revertir esa ley”.En movimientoCon esta cosmovisión, no debería sorprendernos que Bryant haya sido una espina para los funcionarios de la prisión. Altamente litigioso, sin dudar en denunciar un agravio cuando se violan sus derechos, Bryant también defiende a sus compañeros reclusos tan estridentemente como se defiende él. Él los ayuda a redactar sus propios reclamos, investigar estatutos relevantes para sus casos y elaborar estrategias para sus audiencias de libertad condicional.Como él no tiene ninguna posibilidad de obtener la libertad condicional, el Departamento de Correcciones tiene, irónicamente, una amenaza menos que pueda mantener sobre la cabeza de Bryant. Aun así, a pesar de todos sus enfrentamientos procesales con el personal penitenciario, Bryant nunca ha sido enviado a la Unidad de Reclusión Restringida, excepto para ayudar a sus compañeros de prisión que fueron puestos allí. Esto es considerable que haya ocurrido por 25 años, dado cuán impulsivamente los guardias arrojan a los prisioneros “al hoyo”. Este método de tortura es aún más atroz si se tiene en cuenta la grave falta de recursos de salud mental en las prisiones de Estados Unidos.Los materiales educativos para los estudiantes de inglés son casi inexistentes. En un estado en el que una proporción cada vez mayor de prisioneros habla poco o nada de inglés, Bryant a veces es la única persona disponible para traducir. Bryant dice que la mejor herramienta que tiene a su disposición para ayudar a sus compañeros hispanohablantes adquirir destrezas en inglés es el periódico Workers World-MO.La última página de este periódico, la sección de español Mundo Obrero, es el texto clave de la instrucción ad hoc de inglés como segundo idioma que ofrece Bryant. Hay más de 300 suscriptores a WW-MO encarcelados en Pensilvania, pero algunos de ellos solo tienen acceso a esa página.Para sus compañeros reclusos, la asistencia de Bryant significa una oportunidad renovada de ganar su libertad. Esto ha llevado a que los funcionarios penitenciarios quieran sacar a Bryant de su jurisdicción cuando causa demasiados problemas. Ha sido transferido a varios bloques de celdas e incluso a otras ­prisiones.En una ocasión, fue enviado de vuelta al bloque F de SCI Mahanoy, que fue el primer lugar donde llegó después de su falsa condena. Una mañana después de la mudanza, Bryant se despertó en su celda y vio a una figura familiar. Aunque el hombre caminaba inestable por décadas en el hoyo, encorvado y arrastrando los pies tras la puerta de la celda, no había duda por los ojos sabios, esa cara inteligente y esas largas rastas negras.Se corrió la voz rápidamente de que Mumia Abu-Jamal estaba nuevamente entre la población general después de 30 años en confinamiento solitario. Su nueva celda estaba al lado de la de Bryant.Los prisioneros acudieron a Mumia como lo han hecho con cada profeta a lo largo de la historia. Pero Bryant mantuvo su distancia al principio. No quería abrumar al revolucionario que, final y milagrosamente, había salido del infierno en la tierra que es el corredor de la muerte.Su amistad finalmente nació de la infatigable compasión de Bryant. Empezó a arrojar consejos de supervivencia del Bloque F a Mumia: qué ponerse en el camino a la ducha, qué días mantener su celda limpia para la inspección, en quién puede confiar, a quién evitar. Pronto se formó un vínculo y, en poco tiempo, los dos a menudo podían ser vistos en el patio caminando, hablando y teorizando.El ex Pantera Negra y periodista de radio de Filadelfia se volvió hacia Bryant y dijo: “Sabes, B, tienes una gran voz de radio”. Normalmente, eso solo sería un gran cumplido por parte de un orador como Mumia Abu-Jamal. Pero Bryant fue sorprendido por una razón completamente diferente.“Mu no tenía manera de saber esto, pero mi padre era un jockey de radio AM para WLAN. Cuando era un niño, lo imitaba a él todo el tiempo”. Mientras cuenta la historia, Bryant rompe en una parodia impecable de las etiquetas clásicas de radio en español de la mañana: “ Buenos días, estás escuchando a 93.7 Ramón y Lucci. No toques esa esfera …”Parecía predestinado que Bryant Arroyo se cruzara con Mumia Abu-Jamal y lo adoptara como su mentor. Uno de los héroes más grandes de Bryant fue Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, el boxeador de peso pesado que ganó su libertad después de haber sido encarcelado por error durante 20 años. Había esperado encontrarse con él algún día, pero este sueño nunca se realizó pues Carter murió de cáncer de próstata en 2014. “Pero Mu lo conoció”, dice Bryant. “ Hurricane fue a ver a Mu. Eso es igual de bueno”.[En la segunda parte: ‘El primer ambientalista prisionero en el mundo’]FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Juncker backs creation of UN Special Representative for Safety of Journalists

first_img At a joint press conference yesterday with UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker expressed support for the creation of the position of a UN Special Representative for the Safety of Journalists. May 17, 2018 Juncker backs creation of UN Special Representative for Safety of Journalists Help by sharing this information RSF_en Protecting journalistsInternational bodies Freedom of expressionUnited Nations Organisation “We have proposed to our friend to appoint a Special Representative for the Safety of Journalists because it is a subject that worries us more and more in Europe and beyond,” Juncker said. More than 130 media outlets, NGOs and labour unions throughout the world support the #ProtectJournalists campaign for a special representative that was launched by Reporters Without Borders (RSF). “As Europe is the continent where press freedom is guaranteed best, the European Commission’s support provides significant additional weight to a campaign already backed by dozens of UN member states,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “As we have unfortunately seen in recent months, the dangers to journalists are growing in Europe, to the point that two have been murdered, in Malta and Slovakia.” European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans voiced his support for the #ProtectJournalists campaign in a letter to RSF on 7 December. He did so in response to an appeal by RSF to European governments and institutions to do more to protect journalists in the wake of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder in October.

Follow the news on Myanmar July 23, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Photographer Khin Aye Kyu freed, but cameraman brother stays in prison to go further RSF_en MyanmarAsia – Pacific US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture Burmese photographer Khin Aye Kyu was recently freed after serving a four-year prison sentence for distributing unauthorised videotapes and illegally possessing video equipment.Confirming her release, she told Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) she was trying to resume her job as a photographer but that her priority was looking after her brother Ko Sein Ohn, who remains in prison in Mandalay and whose wife was too poor to support him.Her brother, aged 50, was jailed for the same offence and at the same time, in 1996, but for a longer term of 10 years.  The military regime said he had made and distributed videos of a speech by opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. She said his conditions of detention were poor and that he had stomach problems. She was visiting him every two months and supporting both him and herself by selling lottery tickets in the street.However, she had covered the recent visit to a Rangoon suburb by Aung San Suu Kyi, who was freed from house arrest in May. “I want to resume my work as a photographer and camera-operator,” she said, “but it’s expensive and I don’t have any clients yet.”Reporters Without Borders called for the release of Ko Sein Ohn, along with at least 15 other media workers imprisoned in Burma.The organisation also learns that the authorities at Myitkyina prison, in the north of the country, recently lifted their two-month-old ban on visits to journalist and elected member of parliament Sein Hla Oo.  Despite the long and costly journey from Rangoon, his wife has said she will visit him as soon as she can. The journalist has had several heart attacks since he was arrested.A few days before the visitors ban was lifted, his wife was invited to the house of Aung San Suu Kyi, who said she was worried about his health and promised to intervene with the authorities. The ban was also been lifted for opposition figure Doctor Khin Zaw Win, who is also imprisoned at Myitkyina.Finally, Czech President Vaclav Havel has expressed his support for writers and journalists in jails, especially Win Tin, in a recent message to the Avignon International Theatre Festival.  Journalist Win Tin, an official of the opposition National League for Democracy, has been held at Rangoon’s Insein Prison since 4 July 1989.

220 Central Park South’s first resale in the works

(Compass, Vornado, Getty)UPDATE: March 12, 2021, 3:35 p.m.: A deal that will serve as a benchmark for how values have held up at 220 Central Park South is underway.Sources have confirmed that unit 55B is under contract to sell, although the final sale price is not known. Listing agent Jessica Campbell of Nest Seekers International said there was tremendous interest in the unit until the deal was official, and noted she had several “backup buyers” on deck in the event it fell through. If the deal closes, it will be the first resale at Vornado Realty Trust’s blockbuster building, which holds the record for selling the most expensive home in the country to Citadel founder Ken Griffin.Jessica Campbell of Nest Seekers International (Nest Seekers)The seller, masked behind a limited liability company, 220 MARCH, bought the unit on the 55th floor for about $26.8 million in late 2019. The seller originally signed a contract to purchase the unit in April 2015. It was listed for resale in early February seeking $33 million.Campbell declined to comment on the terms of the deal or the parties, but said the unit was only on the market for 30 days before a contract was in the works, and that her seller was “pleased.”Read moreThe inside story of 220 Central Park South, the world’s most profitable condoKen Griffin sets US home record with $238M buy at 220 CPSNYC’s ghost towers Tags Ryan Serhant is representing the buyer at his new brokerage Serhant.

(Ryan Serhant)Even before the pandemic, nearly 40 percent of condo resales in Midtown closed at a loss — the worst of any neighborhood or property type, according to a citywide analysis by StreetEasy. Now, amid the pandemic and with a glut of new development condos on the market, that landscape is even more challenging unless sellers are willing to accept discounted offers.“I think many will be curious to see if resales follow the same path that One57 has taken, with substantial discounts from the original contract price,” said appraiser Jonathan Miller, referring to Extell Development’s nearby tower where owners have resold units at significant losses in the past year.But Donna Olshan, who tracks Manhattan’s luxury sales weekly, said she expects resale prices at Vornado’s tower to be elevated given its much-publicized track record as the world’s most profitable condo.“It’s the top building in New York,” she said. “There’s always a buyer at the top level of any real estate market.”Contact Erin Hudson Share via Shortlink 220 Central Park SouthLuxury Real EstateResidential Real EstateVornado Realty Trustlast_img read more

Vermont EB-5 Regional Center recognized as best in the nation

first_imgThe Agency of Commerce and Community Development’s EB-5 Regional Center has again received the EB-5 Regional Center of the Year Award for the second year in row by the Artisan Business Group. The Artisan Business group is one of the largest EB-5 brokers in the world, dealing primarily with the Chinese investor marketplace. In giving the award, the Artisan group noted that as the only government-run regional center in the country, Vermont stands out with its strong governmental support, including direct involvement in the program from Gov. Peter Shumlin and Sen. Patrick Leahy. Artisan further states that Vermont’s intensive application process and oversight has led to stronger than average projects, creating a strong market brand for Vermont. The main focus of Vermont’s work in EB-5 is job creation. ‘These investments require job creation, so becoming the industry leader nationally not only provides significant investment capital for Vermont businesses, but also creates jobs for Vermonters,’ said Commerce and Community Development Secretary Lawrence Miller.The Vermont EB-5 Regional Center was created in 1998 and is managed by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development. The federal program gives a green card benefit to investors who invest at least $500,000 in an approved project, and must personally show that that investment creates at least 10 direct and indirect jobs. Since 1998, more than $250 million has been invested in Vermont by EB-5 investors in companies such as Jay Peak Resort, Sugarbush Resort, Country Home Products, and Seldon Technologies.The year 2011 was an especially strong year for the Vermont Regional Center, with more than $100 million estimated to have been invested in Vermont projects alone. With almost 200 regional centers in the country, this constitutes almost 15 percent of all EB-5 investment nationally for the year, showing Vermont’s strong position in the marketplace.‘Without the EB-5 program, many of these projects would not have found the capital they needed for their expansions, and the hundreds of jobs tied to them would not have been created,’ said James Candido, the director of the EB-5 for the State of Vermont.Candido added that the way Vermont has structured its Regional Center is the biggest reason for its success, ‘EB-5 investors are looking for as much safety as possible in their at-risk investment. Since Vermont was one of the first EB-5 Regional Centers in the country, we have a solid understanding of EB-5 and a significant track record that benefits our projects and market perception,’ he said. ‘The award from the Artisan group is significant for both present and future Vermont EB-5 projects, since Artisan is one of the largest broker firms that pair Chinese investors to EB-5 projects. Roughly 50 percent of all EB-5 investment in 2011 was from Chinese nationals, so this is an important recognition.’12.28.2011last_img read more

Why credit unions need to venture beyond the ‘big 5′ of mobile banking with StrategyCorps’ Dave Defazio

first_img 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr with Mike LawsonAccording to StrategyCorps Partner Dave DeFazio, there are five mobile banking “must haves” today:Mobile bankingMobile bill payMobile depositsATM/branch locatorP2P paymentsIf you have those, you are meeting the needs of today’s increasingly mobile consumer. If not, you better get on the stick. But, as we all know, the FI market continues to evolve at a breakneck pace and CUs must be ready for it. So we asked Dave what’s on the not-so-distant horizon when it comes to mobile services — venturing beyond the big five, if you will, that keeps your members happy and loyal to your credit union.One of the items he discusses is integrating rewards with the transaction so the credit union, the member, and the retailer benefit in the process that fosters more activity and loyalty — which ultimately deepens the relationship. Dave mentions many other “beyond-the-transaction” possibilities that seem deliverable in the next few years — probably the next few months, and complements them with real-world examples. Check it out and let us know what you think about this peek into the future of banking. Pretty cool stuff CUs should consider. continue reading »last_img read more

Deciding Whether To Transfer Colleges: Facts, Figures & Other Considerations

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Should I Transfer Colleges? Choosing whether or not to transfer is a decision many students ponder, but can be easier to make if they consider certain facts and statistics. It’s that time of the year—temperatures have risen, spring semester has ended, and college students are considering whether they should transfer schools. With fall admission application deadlines fast approaching, countless college students are contemplating the idea of leaving their current institution to attend another that better suits their needs. Yet, a significant portion of those students may not be quite ready to click “send” on their applications. A Little HesitationReasons abound as to why students may be hesitant to transfer. Some students interpret their dissatisfaction with their current school choice as failure or defeat. Others may hesitate because they anticipate social isolation in an unfamiliar college or university. Students who enrolled in colleges away from where they grew up may miss their family and friends. They may miss the good home cooking. They may simply yearn for all the familiar pleasantries and creature comforts associated with transferring home. Not only are transfer students anything but failures, they are also not alone. Every semester, an infinite number of students ask themselves “Should I transfer colleges?” “Do college credits expire?” and “How do I transfer college credits?” While some may conclude it’s best to stay where they are, others decide to take that step forward and search for success elsewhere.Surprise!The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), an organization that informs students who are looking to continue their education after high school, compiled a 2014 State of College Admission Report, which concludes that there are more transfer students than you probably think. (Team Morey includes several transfer students, one whom transferred from Nassau Community College to Hofstra University, utilizing one of its transfer-friendly articulation agreements. What is an articulation agreement? A special arrangement between schools that maximize your transfer credits!). The NACAC cites the National Student Clearinghouse—a nonprofit organization that conducts research on educational trends and patterns—which in a 2015 report found “About one-third of the 2.8 million students who began postsecondary education in Fall 2006 had transferred at least once in the following five years, and almost half (46 percent) of students who completed a four-year degree in 2013-14 had enrolled in a two-year institution at some point in the previous 10 years.” This indicates that in recent years specifically, the number of college transfer students versus non-transfer students is pretty split down the middle. Some students even transfer more than once before they earn their bachelor’s degree.The report also discusses NACAC’s 2013 Admissions Trends Survey, which reveals that 44.4 percent of institutions saw an increase in transfer applicants throughout the past five years and 37.6 percent saw an increase in enrollment. Additionally, the number of students transferring from community colleges, or two-year schools, is about the same as from four-year schools. “Admission Trends Survey respondents reported that, on average, transfer populations on their campuses were roughly evenly divided between students who transferred from community colleges and those who transferred from other four-year institutions,” the report notes. Although transfer students have to adjust to their new surroundings, the NACAC points out that more often than not, transfer students finish their studies and earn their degree—associate or bachelor’s degree—just as other non-transfer students do, specifically when it comes to transferring from community colleges. The report refers back to the National Student Clearinghouse, stating that 60 percent of students who first attended a two-year school and then transferred to a four-year school earned a bachelor’s degree. Some even continued their education, earning advanced degrees, as well. This exemplifies how transfer students can be just as successful as those who do not transfer.Just because some students follow a different path than others doesn’t mean they’re incapable of thriving in college or in their post-college careers. When contemplating transferring colleges, you should decide sooner rather than later, however. It’s also important to weigh some of the related options when making such a decision, such as whether you should live on campus or off campus as a transfer student. Running through a list of other helpful transfer tidbits in a Transfer Student Checklist can also prove beneficial in advising this all-important decision. Beginning your research early can help ensure a smooth, easy transition to the college of your dreams!Morey Publishing specializes in smart, effective inbound marketing strategies and beautiful website design work that will amplify your company’s message and attract new clients.

5 reasons marijuana is not medicine

first_img The drug’s chemistry must be known and reproducible. Evidence of a standardized product, consistency, ultra-high purity, fixed dose and a measured shelf life are required by the FDA. The chemistry of “dispensary marijuana” is not standardized. Smoked, vaporized or ingested marijuana may deliver inconsistent amounts of active chemicals. Levels of the main psychoactive constituent, THC, can vary from 1 to 80 percent. Cannabidiol (known as CBD) produces effects opposite to THC, yet THC-to-CBD ratios are unregulated. There must be adequate safety studies. “Dispensary marijuana” cannot be studied or used safely under medical supervision if the substance is not standardized. And while clinical research on long-term side effects has not been reported, drawing from recreational users we know that marijuana impairs or degrades brain function, and intoxicating levels interfere with learning, memory, cognition and driving. Long-term use is associated with addiction to marijuana or other drugs, loss of motivation, reduced IQ, psychosis, anxiety, excessive vomiting, sleep problems and reduced lifespan. Without a standardized product and long-term studies, the safety of indefinite use of marijuana remains unknown. There must be adequate and well-controlled studies proving efficacy. Twelve meta-analyses of clinical trials scrutinizing smoked marijuana and cannabinoids conclude that there is no or insufficient evidence for the use of smoked marijuana for specific medical conditions. There are no studies of raw marijuana that include high-quality, unbiased, blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled or long-duration trials. The drug must be accepted by well-qualified experts. Medical associations generally call for more cannabinoid research but do not endorse smoked marijuana as a medicine. The American Medical Association: “Cannabis is a dangerous drug and as such is a public health concern”; the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: “Medicalization” of smoked marijuana has distorted the perception of the known risks and purposed benefits of this drug;” the American Psychiatric Association: “No current scientific evidence that marijuana is in any way beneficial for treatment of any psychiatric disorder … the approval process should go through the FDA.”Scientific evidence must be widely available. The evidence for approval of medical conditions in state ballot and legislative initiatives did not conform to rigorous, objective clinical trials nor was it widely available for scrutiny.Marijuana fails to meet any of these five criteria for accepted medical use in the United States. At present, it belongs in Schedule I.Is Schedule I drug a roadblock to marijuana research? Not really. The major roadblock to five proposed studies at the California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research was not the Schedule I label, but the scarcity of patients willing to enroll in five major clinical trials. The process for marijuana research could be streamlined by Drug Enforcement Administration oversight and expansion of marijuana production, and a special sub-category of Schedule I could further reduce paperwork. But moving marijuana to Schedule II “to promote research” is conceivably unethical, as marijuana would then be designated a safe and effective medicine in the absence of high-quality evidence.Should we dismiss heartfelt appeals from people suffering various diseases, knowing that a host of chronic, debilitating ailments are inadequately managed? Human stories should not be ignored, and rigorous, creative solutions can be formulated in response. However, the “marijuana mess” and its “new realities” were created not by the federal government but by political processes designed to circumvent the FDA, the only federal agency that safeguards our nation’s medicines. If the more than $100 million spent on ballot and legislative initiatives instead had been used for quality clinical trials, our nation would know much more about the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids. Instead, “dispensary marijuana” is evolving into a human experiment without informed consent.We revere the brain more than other body part because it is the repository of our humanity. When a brain disease strikes, it can fundamentally transform an individual. We schedule and restrict psychoactive drugs because they can negatively affect the human brain and behavior. Of brain diseases, substance use disorders are among the most lamentable forms of human anguish. They are also among the most preventable.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/in-theory/wp/2016/04/29/5-reasons-marijuana-is-not-medicine/ Washington Post 29 April 2016Family First Comment: A very interesting point – “If the more than $100 million spent on ballot and legislative initiatives instead had been used for quality clinical trials, our nation would know much more about the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids. Instead, “dispensary marijuana” is evolving into a human experiment without informed consent.”Yes, political pressure has replaced common sense and solid research on the marijuana issue.Data from 2015 indicate that 30 percent of current cannabis users harbor a use disorder — more Americans are dependent on cannabis than on any other illicit drug. Yet marijuana advocates have relentlessly pressured the federal government to shift marijuana from Schedule I — the most restrictive category of drug — to another schedule or to de-schedule it completely. Their rationale? “States have already approved medical marijuana”; “rescheduling will open the floodgates for research”; and “many people claim that marijuana alone alleviates their symptoms.”Yet unlike drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration, “dispensary marijuana” has no quality control, no standardized composition or dosage for specific medical conditions. It has no prescribing information or no high-quality studies of effectiveness or long-term safety. While the FDA is not averse to approving cannabinoids as medicines and has approved two cannabinoid medications, the decision to keep marijuana in Schedule I was reaffirmed in a 2015 federal court ruling. That ruling was correct.To reside in Schedules II-V and be approved for diagnosing, mitigating, treating or curing a specific medical condition, a substance or botanical must proceed through a rigorous FDA scientific process proving safety and efficacy. Not one form of “dispensary marijuana” with a wide range of THC levels — butane hash oil, smokables, vapors, edibles, liquids — has gone through this rigorous process for a single medical condition (let alone 20 to 40 conditions).To approve a medicine, the FDA requires five criteria to be fulfilled:last_img read more

Suicide rates in Europe ‘linked’ to financial crisis

first_img Share Tweet Share HealthLifestyle Suicide rates in Europe ‘linked’ to financial crisis by: – July 8, 2011 By Nick TriggleHealth correspondent, BBC NewsExperts looked at suicide problems in 10 European countriesThe financial crisis “almost certainly” led to an increase in suicides across Europe, health experts say.The analysis by US and UK researchers found a rise in suicides was recorded among working age people from 2007 to 2009 in nine of the 10 nations studied.The increases varied between 5% and 17% for under 65s after a period of falling suicide rates, The Lancet reported.Researchers said investment in welfare systems was the key to keeping rates down.In particular, they argued supporting people back into work or having programmes to stop them losing their jobs in the first place was more important than giving them benefits.The team used World Health Organization data to compare rates in the 10 countries, including the UK.‘Complete turnaround’During the period, there was a rise in unemployment by a third.Only Austria saw suicide rates fall. This was put down to the country being less exposed to the financial crisis than the others.Of the risers, Finland fared best while Greece had the worst record. The UK saw a rise of 10% to 6.75 suicides per 100,000 people.Dr David Stuckler, one of the researchers, said: “There was a complete turnaround. Suicides were falling before the recession, then started rising in nearly all European countries studied. Almost certainly these rises are linked to the financial crisis.”And he added it was also possible there would be other health consequences from the economic problems as the impact on heart disease and cancer rates was not likely to be seen for many years.‘Major risk factors’However, the researchers also found that road deaths fell during the period – a trend which was put down to the falls in vehicle use that tend to be seen during difficult economic times.The report comes after a BBC investigation earlier this year found there had been a rise in anti-depressant prescribing during the financial crisis.Prescriptions for drugs such as Prozac rose by more than 40% over the past four years with GPs saying more and more people were coming to them with money worries.Andy Bell, deputy chief executive of the Centre for Mental Health, said: “We know that unemployment and the fear of unemployment are major risk factors for poor mental health.“This research shows how important it is that we treat the mental health of people who are not just out of work but also in work but fear losing their jobs as a major public health issue”.center_img 21 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Young season a disappointment so far

first_imgDespite losing three All-Americans to graduation last year, the USC women’s soccer team entered this season ranked eighth in the country and were expected to reload with young talent.Four games into the season, however, the Women of Troy have a record of 1-3 and have dropped out of the national rankings.Out of rank · Meagan Holmes is one of the few Women of Troy with significant playing experience. The core of the team is young and unproven, part of the reason USC made a quick exit from the national standings. – Carlo Acenas | Daily TrojanUsing a starting lineup featuring six freshmen and sophomores, USC has struggled to find the chemistry and intricate passing game that defined its successes in the past two seasons.USC coach Ali Khosroshahin, while disappointed with the early season results, understands the growing pains associated with having a young team.“You have to give each player the opportunity to grow into it,” Khosroshahin said. “You have to stand up and take responsibility when things don’t go well, and I think they’re doing that. I definitely see improvement every time they step on the field.”The Women of Troy showed flashes of their potential last weekend in their 4-0 rout of Cal State Fullerton. USC struggled again two days later, however, losing 1-0 to Ohio State on a late penalty-kick goal.“I think with any group that’s young and inexperienced, there’s gonna be mistakes,” USC senior goalkeeper Kristin Olsen said. “I think it would be a little more frustrating if we were older, but because we’re so young we’re trying to figure it out. But it’s getting better and that’s what counts.”USC’s young players will have a chance to continue to improve this weekend when the Women of Troy take on Gonzaga and Michigan at McAlister Field.The Zags come into their Friday match against USC with a 3-1 record. Redshirt Midfielder senior Lori Conrad leads the team with three goals while junior midfielder Sheridan Jones has three assists. Gonzaga did lose to USC’s Pac-10 rival Washington State 3-0 last week.Michigan is 3-3 on the season and will face Cal State Fullerton Friday before they take on the Women of Troy on Sunday. The Wolverines scored a combined eight goals in wins last week against Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan. Midfielder Jackie Carron leads the team with two goals and three assists.USC could get a boost this weekend in the form of All-American defender, redshirt senior Meagan Holmes, who may return this weekend from an ankle injury suffered earlier this season. Junior Ashli Sandoval, who led USC in points last season, has filled in for Holmes in defense and will be allowed to return to her normal position in the midfield if Holmes is able to play.“We’d love to have Ashli in the midfield,” Khosroshahin said. “But we need other players to step into those roles and perform.”USC’s game against Gonzaga kicks off at 3 p.m. on Friday, while Sunday’s contest against Michigan is set for a noon start time.last_img read more

North Carolina didn’t shoot well, but Marcus Paige made his makes count

first_img Published on April 3, 2016 at 1:24 am Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse HOUSTON — Syracuse’s defense — its 2-3 zone, its full-court press, its mind-boggling ability to shrink the court so that 10 out-stretched arms seem to cover the whole thing — had guided it to this point. To two lopsided wins in St. Louis. To two dramatic comebacks in Chicago.To the Final Four.And as the Orange held on to a fleeting hope that it could pull off one more miracle, as North Carolina started to bend then nearly tear at the seams, the defense had help up. The Tar Heels had missed all 12 of their 3-point attempts and a Malachi Richardson 3, with 9:48 left in SU’s season, shaved UNC’s lead to seven. The offense was starting to click and Syracuse needed stops. It needed to keep the perimeter locked down. It needed one more stand, at least until a meeting with Villanova in the national championship on Monday night.But it took 22 seconds for Marcus Paige to, if only momentarily, snap his team out of its shooting slumber. From there, Paige made two more late 3s to help top-seeded North Carolina (33-6, 14-4 Atlantic Coast) hold off 10th-seeded SU (23-14, 9-9) in a 83-66 win at NRG Stadium on Saturday night. The Tar Heels ultimately finished 4-for-17 from beyond the arc, with three of those makes coming from their senior leader, and it seemed that each one of Paige’s 13 points help keep the Orange from another come-from-behind upset.“At that moment, I wanted somebody in a North Carolina uniform to make one,” UNC head coach Roy Williams said of when Paige hit the team’s first 3. “There’s no question I got a little excited, because (Paige) had done so many good things and hadn’t been able to make a shot.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“… I got a little excited on the sideline. If I think about, if I had time to reflect, I think it’s appropriate that it was Marcus Paige who did that.”Paige’s first four career games against Syracuse are easy to categorize from an individual performance standpoint.Very good: 22 points in a January 2015 win, 17 points in a January 2014 loss.And very, very bad: Three points in a win on Jan. 9, six points in a win on Feb. 29.Saturday was the first time that Paige, based on raw statistics, fell in the middle of those extremes. He scored an efficient 13 and three of his teammates outscored him. He had three assists while backcourt mate Joel Berry II notched a game-high 10. He also committed a team-high three turnovers, which were ill-advised but far from crippling.But it was the timing of his shots, with no bearing on the box score but a great effect on history, that made him the one to end the Syracuse magic and give his team a chance at the national title. There were moments, however short, where it seemed the Orange could stage one more late-game rally. Moments when the press forced a turnover, or a shot improbably rolled through the rim, or a loose ball finally bounced in SU’s favor. Moments that could only make Gonzaga and Virginia, watching this Tournament unfold from afar, sweat all over again.Yet there was Paige — calm, cool and connecting.His first 3 bumped the lead from seven to 10. His second one pushed the lead to 13. And his last one, three minutes after that with 2:53 left in the game, did the same and pushed Syracuse away from one of the improbable national championship berths in college basketball history.The Tar Heels’ 13 missed 3s were noticeable. Some were particularly ugly. Some, thanks to microphones mounted on the rims, were particularly loud. But Paige’s makes were particularly important, outweighing all those bricks and lifting North Carolina above the late-game drama the Orange has lived on this postseason.“It’s tough, you know, because you put so much effort into stopping their inside players who are very talented,” SU guard Michael Gbinije said. “And that kind of makes you vulnerable to the outside and when they’re knocking them down you have to play honestly. Marcus made us to do that, and I thought he really helped them pick us apart at that point.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Landon Donovan says he’ll retire after season

first_imgA year after Landon Donovan returned to soccer, he realized he had lost his passion for the sport again. This time, the best player in American history decided to walk away for good.”I think for the last few years, I haven’t had the same passion that I had previously in my career,” Donovan said at the Galaxy’s stadium. ”To some extent, I had felt obligated to keep playing. … It’s time to enjoy the rest of the season, and there would be no better way than to go out as a champion, so that’s what I want to do.”The 32-year-old Donovan announced Thursday he will retire from professional soccer at the end of the MLS season, wrapping up the most prolific career in the league’s history with one last run at a championship with the LA Galaxy.Donovan is the top goal-scorer in MLS history and the top scorer in U.S. national team history, excelling as a forward and a midfielder. He was even named the most valuable player of his 14th MLS All-Star game on Wednesday night in Portland, scoring a goal in the All-Stars’ 2-1 win over Bayern Munich, only to make his stunning retirement announcement the next day.”All I could think is that if everyone only knew,” Donovan said with a grin.Donovan, a five-time MLS champion with the Galaxy and the San Jose Earthquakes, made his retirement announcement on the same stage where he agreed to a multiyear contract extension with the Galaxy just a year ago, pronouncing himself revitalized after an extended sabbatical.He took several months off following the Galaxy’s second straight MLS Cup title alongside now-retired David Beckham in December 2012. Donovan traveled extensively during his time off, and he plans to see even more of the world after his career ends this fall. ”It gets me excited thinking about it,” Donovan said. ”For 16 years, almost every decision I’ve made, every hour of every day, has revolved around, ‘How is this going to prepare me for tomorrow’s training session or tomorrow’s game?’ Just having the freedom to do whatever you want is exciting, and I’m looking forward to that.”Donovan has been a key component of MLS’ impressive growth during his 14 years in the top North American league. After he struggled for playing time at Bayer Leverkusen as a teenager, he chose to pursue a pro career in his native California instead of Europe, adding a marquee attraction to the then-struggling league.”There is no doubt that Major League Soccer would not be what it is today without Landon Donovan,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said. ”His decision to join MLS in 2001 was a statement to the entire soccer community, at the most crucial time in our history, that MLS could be a league of choice for the best American players.Landon is to MLS what Michael Jordan was to the NBA, Wayne Gretzky was to the NHL and Tiger Woods was to the PGA Tour: a player whose sporting accomplishments and popularity transformed their respective leagues and set a new standard for how the game would be played.”Donovan said his decision wasn’t spurred by his omission from his fourth U.S. World Cup team this summer. He was surprised and disappointed by coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s decision, feeling he had done enough in training camp to warrant inclusion. ”I certainly wasn’t going to allow one person’s poor choice this summer to affect a decision like this,” Donovan said.Donovan is the career U.S. leader with 57 international goals over 156 appearances, and he has scored five World Cup goals, including his famed stoppage-time goal against Algeria four years ago to send the Americans to the second round. He watched the American team in Brazil from afar as a television commentator.”Quite simply the best player ever to wear the USMNT jersey,” U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati posted on his Twitter account.Donovan has no concrete plans for his long-term future in soccer, but he is eager to work with young players in the Galaxy’s academy training program.”Landon’s legacy is secure with the Galaxy,” said Galaxy President Chris Klein, Donovan’s former teammate and roommate. ”So to be able to celebrate that for the rest of the year in terms of how he goes out will be great. When he decides what it is that he wants to do and where he wants to put his heart and energy next, we’ll be there to talk about that.” Donovan has played for the Galaxy since 2005, also going on loan to Everton and Bayern Munich during the Galaxy’s offseason. Donovan struggled early in his pro career in Europe, but was popular during his two stints with Everton.”Congratulations on a great career to (at)landondonovan as he announces he’ll retire later this year. Part of EFC fabric,” Everton tweeted from its official account.Donovan has four goals and seven assists in 17 games for the Galaxy this season as a midfielder and a forward. He passed Jeff Cunningham for the career MLS goals record shortly after Klinsmann excluded him from the World Cup team.His absence creates another hole for the LA club, which couldn’t manage a third straight MLS title last season in its first year since Beckham’s departure. But Donovan’s retirement opens up a designated player spot for the Galaxy alongside leading scorer Robbie Keane and U.S. national team defender Omar Gonzalez.After a lifetime spent in practices and games, Donovan sees his departure as another step in his personal evolution into whatever person he decides to be outside soccer. His decision to leave the Bundesliga for MLS as an unhappy teenager was unpopular, and Donovan knows many fans won’t understand his early retirement. ”Sometimes there’s a sense of obligation in people’s lives, the sense that you have to do something,” Donovan said. ”I’ve never lived that way. I have to live the life I want to live, and that’s an important thing to go by.”last_img read more

Lakers’ Tyson Chandler learns on the fly in his return to L.A.

first_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“I love this city the way they love me,” he said postgame, sporting a black Dodgers cap. “I’ve been on the other side and played the villain. Now it’s great to be on this side and actually rep ’em.”There was a whirlwind of steps between the Tuesday morning Chandler set out on his road trip and the 23-minute debut he made for the Lakers on Wednesday night, when he helped close out the 114-110 victory with two critical offensive rebounds against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Not everyone could be expected to digest as much as Chandler did and still play a meaningful role in a win.But it’s that skill set, the veteran knowledge and the intuition the Lakers felt they needed when they agreed to sign Chandler over the weekend, as the Suns negotiated his $13.6 million buyout. Phoenix gained salary cap space and moved a veteran who had grown restless on a number of forgettable teams. The Lakers, however, added rebounding, defense and a base of experience they felt was lacking in their locker room.While it might be overstating the case to say Chandler’s addition is vital to the Lakers, it certainly was described in those terms by a number of key veterans and the one person who has been most embattled in the last week: Coach Luke Walton.“We needed the help now,” he said. “And I don’t know how that all works, but give Rob and Magic credit for recognizing that and going out and getting that job done for our squad. I think it helps stabilize us.” LOS ANGELES — In all, the journey took six hours. Like any true Angeleno, Tyson Chandler knew there would be traffic.He had filled his car during the few days he learned he would be moving from Phoenix back to Los Angeles, and he decided to drive rather than fly to save himself the hassle of having to go back later for more of his things.After all, what is six hours when he had been waiting 17 years for this to happen?In the back of his mind, Chandler, 36, had been hoping to come home throughout his NBA career, since he was traded by the Clippers on draft night in 2001. He had been waiting for the kind of reception he got Wednesday night when he checked into his first game with the Lakers with three minutes left in the first quarter. As he pointed toward the rafters, the Staples Center crowd cheered for his arrival – the native son finally playing for the team he grew up watching. Chandler was also vocal on a second unit that often hums with Rondo’s running dialogue. He was communicating on defense, pointing out vulnerabilities and trying to position himself correctly as the Lakers held the Timberwolves to just 33 percent shooting in the second half. James said every one of Chandler’s minutes was “impactful,” and his voice – telling the team to keep fighting – was welcome for a group that has lost a number of close games already this season.During a late timeout, Rondo was uncharacteristically quiet. Walton was concerned his point guard was upset. Rondo wasn’t – he just didn’t have anything to add.“Coach asked what was wrong; I’m like, ‘When Tyson’s talking, I don’t need to talk as well,’ ” he said. “So having another voice in the locker room is big, especially for me and Bron.”But even the most prepared veteran has weaknesses. For Chandler, it was his conditioning. Moving and going through assorted medical exams had knocked him out of his routine, and he hadn’t played much in Phoenix before being bought out. In the Lakers’ up-tempo style, his only goal was to play good defense and let the younger players run.He made good on those efforts, setting physical screens and playing tough defense on Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who didn’t hit a shot in the second half. With Chandler guarding him, Towns was 0 for 6.

Subscribe here.How does a player go from arriving on a Tuesday afternoon and closing a game Wednesday night?The Lakers took a lot of time with Chandler, even in the limited opportunities. As early as Tuesday, Walton squeezed in some court time with him. After Wednesday morning shootaround, Walton assembled a group of five (including himself) to help Chandler run through the team’s offensive sets.But not everything is in a playbook. In the game itself, Chandler credited veteran guard Rajon Rondo with helping him get up to speed with where he needed to be. Sometimes, Rondo would say so and point. Sometimes he would simply flick his eyes to a spot where he needed Chandler to go.All signals were picked up.“He vocally was telling me where to be at all times, making eye contact with me,” Chandler said. “And I’ve seen a lot of the sets to pick up on ’em. I knew the basics, but clearly, I didn’t know like second or third options.”Still, there were times he could have fooled the casual observer. Rondo and LeBron James credited Chandler for having a basic familiarity with certain sets that go by many names on many different teams but are common throughout the NBA. The Lakers ran a “Chin” set with Chandler on the floor that resulted in an alley-oop by Lonzo Ball. Chandler’s intuition on such plays made it possible to keep him on the floor. While he wasn’t always arriving in transition with everyone else, that will come with time, Chandler insisted.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs “Tonight, I was just trying to anchor defensively and let them run offensively,” he said. “As the weeks go along, I’ll get my legs under me and really start being able to be a help on both ends.”One thing Chandler understands: There’s a lot more time. He was expecting to get bought out, but such deals are more common during the second half of the season, when teams already have an idea what their season will look like. Rather than spending a few weeks in March trying to blend in for a playoff run, Chandler has 71 more games to try to find his role on the Lakers.Maybe he’ll take some time this week to finish moving in and getting settled. The next journey is just beginning.“I was just happy to get this first one out of the way,” he said, “so I can get back into my rhythm and really just start building layers of what we’re going to try to accomplish.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

But above all, I loved the work of my teammates. This is a very difficult field and we fight and fight to take the three points. “How was the second goal? How do you finish a center like this? What is the most important to decide the moment of the jump?“First is the clearing in motion within the area and then the ‘timing’ to score the goal. The center is also great and I am very happy, very happy.”How would you define at the team level the match you have made today?“It was a fight where the team responded very well. Today was a day to fight and fight. And that’s what we did. We don’t score goals back, but it’s also everyone’s job when we’re together like this and we fight. Let’s go for everything.

Bravo pulls out of World Cup – T&T batsman to focus on four-day championship

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): Left-hander Darren Bravo yesterday became the third player to pull out of the troubled Twenty20 World Cup squad. Following the high-profile withdrawals by Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine last week, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced that Bravo had also opted out of the squad in order to be available for Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the Regional four-day championship. In a letter sent to the board, Bravo said that while he was “very grateful and humbled” to be selected, he preferred to focus on developing his game in the longest format. “I’m of the firm belief that I have a very big part to play in the resurgence of West Indies cricket in the longer formats of the game, and I will like the opportunity to play in our Professional Cricket League (PCL) because it will put me in good stead and will allow me to achieve those goals that I have aligned myself for the year 2016 and beyond,” the Trinidadian said. Selectors will now mull over yet another replacement after having to find alternatives for Pollard and Narine. All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite was named to replace Pollard while, yesterday, the board said that Barbados off-spinner Ashley Nurse had been chosen in Narine’s absence. Nurse has played four Twenty20s for West Indies and 60 overall. Pollard said that he had not fully recovered from an injury sustained last December, while Narine indicated that work on his new action had not been completed. He is currently banned from bowling in international cricket. Meanwhile, the remainder of the squad have all signed their tour contracts for the March 8 to April 3 ICC tournament in India. Fears of a player boycott were heightened last week when T20 captain Darren Sammy wrote to the WICB on behalf of the squad to indicate their discontent with the pay structure. In the communication, Sammy said the players “cannot accept the terms on offer”, but in a subsequent radio interview in Trinidad, he said the squad always intended to contest the World Cup and would sign the contracts. The WICB said the new terms of the contract had been hammered out almost 10 months ago in conjunction with players’ union, WIPA, and had been communicated then to all players.last_img read more

Miller strikes to level Guyana tie

first_imgAnother steady bowling performance by discarded West Indies left-arm spinner Nikita Miller has put leaders Jamaica Scorpions in a good position to get a positive result against the Guyana Amazon Warriors heading into the third day of their top-of-the-table WICB Four-day Tournament clash at Sabina Park.Bowling his usual nagging lines and exercising flight and variations, Miller claimed four for 69, as second-place Guyana, who resumed the day on 69 without loss, were bowled out for 262.This was for a small first-innings lead of seven runs after the Scorpions had posted 255 in their first time at bat on day one.Batting a second time, the Scorpions then closed on 61 for one, with Jermaine Blackwood not out on 25 and first-innings centurion Chadwick Walton on nine.Opener John Campbell, 26, is the batsman to be dismissed.Resuming with the intention of overhauling the Scorpions’ competitive total, Guyana were led in their pursuits by recent West Indies Under-19 World Cup winning captain, opener Shimron Hetmyer, and the father-and-son duo of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Tagenarine Chanderpaul.The trio scored impressive half-centuries, with Hetmyer leading the way with 74 and Tagnerine and Shivnarine, scoring 59 and 58, respectively.However, unable to keep partners, they were somewhat undermined by Miller, who, along with part-time off-spinner Andre McCarthy and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs took wickets at regular intervals.McCarthy, who was the seventh bowler introduced into the attack, bowled eight overs before finishing with three for 18, while Jacobs, who ended with two for 35 off 11.3 overs.Opening ball bowlers Jerome Taylor and Marquino Mindley, part-timer off-spinner Campbell and all-rounder Derval Green, were the other bowlers that were used, and who went wicketless.The second innings for the Scorpions then saw Walton and Campbell putting on 30 runs before the latter was caught behind off the bowling of fast bowler Romario Shepard after hanging his bat loosely at an outswinger.Play is scheduled to resume today at 10 a.m.last_img read more

Harden’s 41 points lead Rockets over Jazz in Game 1

first_imgLATEST STORIES Houston was up by 25 at halftime behind 34 points combined from Harden and Chris Paul. The Jazz, who didn’t wrap up their first-round series with Oklahoma City until late Friday night, looked sluggish and struggled to keep pace with the top-seeded Rockets, who hadn’t played since eliminating Minnesota on Wednesday.The Jazz tied for second in the NBA in the regular season by allowing just 99.8 points, but failed to stop Harden in any of their meetings.

Set election date immediately

first_imgDear Editor,David Granger needs to set the date for elections so that the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) can work on the fast track to meet the March 21 deadline for new elections. Apart from the People’s National Congress (PNC)/Alliance For Change (AFC) diehards who would see their good life evaporate before their eyes, everyone else knows that the PNC has been using delaying tactics to postpone their day of judgement. Decent people are ashamed at the PNC’s shenanigans. The failure of Granger and GECOM to act with the required haste is creating a timeline crunch problem of their own making. They cannot not do anything and then turn around and say they don’t have enough time for preparations. I am glad Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said he would not be flexible with the March 21 deadline as that would be rewarding the PNC’s bullying behaviour. We call on Jagdeo to take whatever action to force the PNC and GECOM to comply with the Constitution of Guyana. We need an urgent assembling of civil society groups and interests, the Bar Association, trade unions, all churches, NGOs and all business associations to make a joint resolution asking the PNC to set the election date. A joint statement from the ABC/EU would also be helpful. For 28 years, the PNC Part 1 “riggeritis” era threw the whole country into a fight for democracy. The PNC is threatening democracy again. In 2015, for the first time in its history, the PNC became a legal Government, and there is a question mark on that as the PPP’s election petition has not been heard. As Freddie Kissoon indicated, in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), the PNC won by one vote and no recount was allowed. Just three and a half years into their new reign, the PNC has backslidden into its old bullying ways threatening the international image of Guyana and refusing to follow the Constitution.Granger must think the Chief Justice must be making optional suggestions, unless he has no respect for the CJ. Both the Speaker and CJ – his nominees – ruled against him. There are some who give Granger a pass for the iniquities of his coalition. However, the buck stops with the President. Right now, he seems quite out of touch and is like that bra advertised on TV – he is “barely there.”The tragedy right now is the silence of the good men. The churches have been quiet as a constitutional crisis looms. I do not know what it will take to get the churches to stir themselves up. I know the Christian churches believe Granger is a good, honest, godly man. However, the failures to fulfil election promises, and the various transgressions have occurred under his watch. Granger should care about his reputation and do the right thing now!Sincerely,Jerry Singhlast_img read more

‘The signs look good!’ – Southampton chief confident Manchester United target will agree new deal

first_imgSouthampton executive director Les Reed insists ‘the signs are good’ Nathaniel Clyne will sign a new contract at the club.The England full-back, who has just one-year left to run on his current deal, has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United.But Reed claims the 24-year-old is happy at St Mary’s and believes the former Crystal Palace star will remain on the South Coast.“We’re in constant communication,“ Reed told talkSPORT. “These contract negotiations are never just one meeting, where everything is done and sorted out.“You have to bear in mind, especially with Nathaniel, that we want him to focus on the last few games of the season. That’s why you’ll get players saying, ‘let’s wait until the end of the season’.“That’s quite normal and he’s very happy. He’s managed to force himself into the England squad and is showcasing his talents.“I’d be very surprised if there wasn’t speculation about him, but at the moment the signs are good.”last_img read more

Donegal people can trace their cousins to – Iceland!

first_imgDonegal people and our not so near neighbours from Iceland could well be cousins!A study led by experts in human genetics at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the University of Edinburgh in Scotland reveals a strong genetic connection between Icelanders and residents of Donegal and the western isles of Scotland.The research project, published in the current edition of the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, sheds light on the Gaelic component to the Icelandic gene pool and has also found strong genetic connections between the Scots and Norse Vikings. Researchers investigated the DNA of more than 2,500 individuals with extended ancestry from specific regions across Great Britain and Ireland, with a specific focus on Scotland. The new data from Scotland means this is the first time the genetic map of Britain and Ireland can be seen in its entirety, researchers say.The study compared the genomes of ancient Gaels buried in Iceland to the modern genetic diversity of Britain and Ireland. The comparison showed that these ancient settlers in Iceland shared the greatest genetic affinity with those on the western Isles of Scotland and the North-West of Ireland.The map reveals that Scotland is divided into at least six clusters of genetically similar individuals, who cluster together geographically – the Borders, the south-west, the north-east, the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland.Some of these clusters, notably those linked with the south-west and Hebrides, share particularly strong affinity with clusters of Irish ancestry. Researchers were also able to analyse the county of Donegal in more detail than before, revealing it as the most genetically isolated region of Ireland observed to date.The study, ‘The Genetic Landscape of Scotland and the Isles’, was completed in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, University of Bristol and the Genealogical Society of Ireland. Funding was provided by Science Foundation Ireland, the Scottish Funding Council, Wellcome Trust and Britain’s Medical Research Council.“The discoveries made in this study illustrate from the perspective of DNA, the shared history of Britain, Ireland and other European regions,” said Gianpiero Cavalleri, Professor of Human Genetics at the RCSI School of Pharmacy and Bimolecular Sciences.“People are well aware of historical migrations between Scotland and Ireland but seeing this history come alive in the DNA is nonetheless remarkable.”Donegal people can trace their cousins to – Iceland! was last modified: September 4th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

When You Can’t Trust Your Gut: Making Sense of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Dietary Strategies

first_imgAuthor: Christian Maino-Vieytes, B.S. Nutritional Sciences, University of Maryland, College Park, M.S. Candidate, Division of Nutritional Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-ChampaignOverviewIrritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a condition defined by continuous bouts of abdominal pain and altered bowel habits resulting in an abnormal stool. Unlike the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), IBS does not have a detectable disease origin or explanation. Also, IBS shares significant symptom-overlap with other illnesses, including lactose intolerance, which can make it difficult to diagnose. Consequently, many individuals routinely afflicted by IBS symptoms may be misdiagnosed or never diagnosed at all. However, there are a set of clinical criteria, called the Rome criteria, which are implemented by doctors, dietitians, or other providers to diagnose and classify IBS. Standards, such as the Manning criteria or the Kruis criteria can be used in place of or combined with Rome. On average, IBS affects younger and female individuals, and disturbed sleep patterns appear to play a role. IBS may present in tandem with other conditions including depression, anxiety, and fibromyalgia. In many cases, an imbalance between healthy and unhealthy bacteria in the gut is present. These facts highlight a hallmark of IBS, which is a compromised brain-gut connection.IBS routinely presents as recurrent abdominal pain, described as cramping in nature, accompanied by diarrhea, constipation, or both. These symptoms inform the different categories of IBS:IBS with predominant constipation (IBS-C)IBS with predominant diarrhea (IBS-D)IBS with mixed bowel habits (IBS-M)IBS unclassified (IBS-U)Symptoms are preceded by unique environmental “triggers” or foods that will cause symptoms to flare-up. Consequently, addressing food sensitivities through the management of these triggers features as the mainstay nutritional intervention for treating IBS.FODMAPs and Nutritional Strategies for Those Living with IBSThe recently touted low-FODMAPs diet has been embraced by professionals and patients in the IBS community as suitable nutritional therapy. FODMAPs, which stands for fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides, and polyols, are small, sugar-containing food components that are fermented by certain bacterial species residing within the gut. The chemical products of these fermentations, including different gases and water retention, are what precipitate the range of symptoms previously discussed (e.g. bloating, gas, abdominal pain, and altered stool). Clinical research has demonstrated that sticking to a diet low in FODMAPs can substantially lower the severity of symptoms for a majority of IBS patients. Despite this, a low-FODMAPs diet can be very restrictive and challenging to implement due to the pervasiveness of FODMAPs in the foods we consume regularly. Common high-FODMAP foods include fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts/seeds, dairy, and sugar-alcohol sweeteners. The Institute for Functional Medicine provides further details on the pillars of the diet as well as a list of high-FODMAP foods and their low-FODMAP alternatives.In addition to the low-FODMAPs diet, other evidence-based dietary strategies include supplementation with probiotics and consuming more fiber-containing foods. Gluten sensitivity, although frequently mentioned in the same sentence as IBS, has not benefited from the same degree of scientific support. What many confuse as gluten being a food-related trigger for IBS is, in fact, consumption of foods that contain FODMAPs in addition to gluten (wheat, rye, and barley all contain FODMAPs). Despite the broad scientific consensus on common food triggers for IBS, these food constituents will affect individuals differently. An individualized nutrition plan that carefully examines specific food triggers in one’s diet requires collaboration between patient and clinician and development with the guidance of a health care provider.Bibliography:Barbara, Giovanni, Cesare Cremon, and Fernando Azpiroz. “Probiotics in irritable bowel syndrome: Where are we?.” Neurogastroenterology & Motility 30.12 (2018): e13513.Codoñer-Franch, Pilar, and Marie Gombert. “Circadian rhythms in the pathogenesis of gastrointestinal diseases.” World journal of gastroenterology 24.38 (2018): 4297.Collins, Stephen M. “A role for the gut microbiota in IBS.” Nature reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology 11.8 (2014): 497.De Giorgio, Roberto, Umberto Volta, and Peter R.

Exam for appointments of postmen to be reconducted in local languages including

first_imgNew Delhi: Acceding to the demand by Tamil parties led by AIADMK, the Government on Tuesday decided to cancel the examination for appointment of postmen held on July 14 to hold it in all local languages including Tamil.”The examination will now be held in all local languages, as per the notification of 10-5-2019 of the department concerned (with) examination, including (in) Tamil,” Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told the Rajya Sabha. Tamil parties had been protesting that questions in the postal department’s examination for appointments of postmen and assistants in rural areas held on Sunday were only in Hindi and English, and not Tamil. The AIADMK were joined in by DMK, CPI and CPI-M members in the protests. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!Proceedings of the Upper House were adjourned thrice during the pre-lunch period and again for 30 minutes after the Upper House re-assembled at 2 PM on the issue. When the proceedings resumed, Prasad, who is the Union Minister for Law and Justice, Communications and Electronics and IT said he has examined the matter and it has been decided to cancel the examination held on July 14. “Certain issues were raised in this House by members, including my friends from Tamil Nadu. I have examined the matter today itself and it has been decided to cancel the examination held on 14-7-2019,” Prasad said.

Therefore this government’s commitment to respecting all languages is full and total,” Prasad said. His assurance satisfied the agitating members. V Maitreyan of the AIADMK expressed gratitude to Prasad and said “due to the development in the last couple of days unfortunately we were forced to raise the issue in the morning today in our own way. I am really thankful on behalf of my party members”. A Navaneethakrishnan of AIADMK said: “I really thank our minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Thank you Thank You Thank You”. T K Rangarajan (CPI-M) suggested that all departments should hold examinations in regional languages. Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Anand Sharma (Congress) said the larger issue is to pre-empt and ensure that there is no recurrence. “Therefore, will the government give a categorical assurance to this House, and through the House to the people of the country, that for all future recruitments, examinations, interviews, in all Central Government Departments, the PSUs, paramilitary forces, the three-language formula, the assurance for which was given by India’s first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) shall be adhered to”.last_img read more

Libya Security Council extends mandate of UN support mission

The UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) was established by the Council in September for an initiative period of three months. In today’s unanimously adopted resolution, the 15-member body extended the mandate until 16 March 2012.The mission’s initial mandate was to support the National Transitional Council (NTC) in its reconstruction efforts after the end of the conflict, including restoring the rule of law, drafting a new constitution, promoting reconciliation and preparing for elections.The Council decided in today’s resolution that “the mandate of UNSMIL shall in addition include, in coordination and consultation with the transitional Government of Libya, assisting and supporting Libyan national efforts to address the threats of proliferation of all arms and related materiel of all types, in particular man-portable surface-to-air missiles.”The Council had in another resolution on 31 October called on interim authorities to take action to prevent the proliferation of arms, missiles and related materiel, saying they posed a security threat to the country and the regionThe NTC declared the full liberation of Libya on 23 October, eight months after the start of the popular uprising against the regime of long-time ruler Colonel Muammar al-Qadhafi, who was eventually captured and killed. It has since formed an interim Government headed by Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib.Earlier this week, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of UNSMIL, Ian Martin, told the Council that the interim Government faces a number of challenges, the most immediate of which is consolidating security. 2 December 2011The Security Council today extended the mandate of the United Nations mission in Libya until the middle of March next year, and expanded its tasks to include assisting the North African country’s transitional Government in its efforts to address the threat of arms proliferation. read more

Stage gradually being set for Somalia to move to a new phase

“They do not like everything they have seen, least of all the levels of corruption, and the absence of institutions that can ensure legal and financial accountability,” said Michael Keating, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia.Mr. Keating’s briefing follows an extended parliamentary electoral process and comes less than two weeks ahead of presidential polls. It also comes against the backdrop of increased Al-Shabaab militancy aiming to disrupt the elections, as evidenced by a series of recent attacks.Stressing the importance that the last stage of the electoral process is conducted transparently and according to the agreed rules, designed to ensure free and fair elections, he noted: “The election of a President accepted as legitimate by the population and by the international community will set the stage for Somalia to tackle the serious challenges ahead.”However, he added: “If voting […] is seen as compromised by corruption, coercion or external interference, then the country could face a protracted period of uncertainty.”Despite problems, progress thus far ‘very encouraging’ – UN envoyIn his briefing, Mr. Keating, who also heads up the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), told Council members that despite the problems seen in the recently concluded elections, the process also had “very encouraging” outcomes, marking an important milestone in the country’s evolution and post-conflict transformation. For instance, the number of voters had increased significantly and the electorate was expanded from 2012’s 135 male elders to over 13,000 individuals (30 per cent of them female). It was also particularly notable that almost a quarter of the members of parliament are now female.“A truly remarkable achievement, the result of effective political mobilization of women, supported by the UN and the international community and some Somali leaders,” noted the Special Representative.“The new Parliament is younger, more diverse and is likely to be more responsive to the electorate than the previous one. In short, this Parliament is more legitimate and representative than any since the last elections were held in 1969,” he noted.Humanitarian plight adding to human sufferingTurning to the humanitarian challenges facing the Horn of Africa country, he reported that about five million people are estimated to be in need around the country and an estimated 320,000 under-five-year-olds are acutely malnourished.“Coping capacities have been eroded to the point of collapse,” he noted.The week before last, the humanitarian community in Somalia had launched an $864 million to reach 3.9 million people with urgent life-saving assistance in 2017, $300 million of this amount is required in the first quarter of this year.Further, noting the political and security implications of the drought, Mr. Keating said that a perceived inability of the federal and local governments to respond will damage their legitimacy – something that will be exploited by Al-Shabaab. “In a nutshell, failure to support the drought response could halt and even undermine the pursuit of key state-building and peace-building objectives,” he cautioned. VIDEO: Michael Keating has lauded the recent election process in the country. Credit: UN News‘It is the Somalis who will determine their own fate’Reiterating that progress is fragile and reversible, and fraught with complexity, he said the stage is nevertheless gradually being set for Somalia to move to a new phase in sustaining peace, preventing and resolving violent conflict, and in building a functional, federal State. “Ultimately, it is the Somalis who will determine their own fate – but your support is central to their chances of success,” he concluded. Also briefing the Council, Francisco Caetano Jose Madeira, Special Representative and Head of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), stated: “The political environment is that of hope and confidence.” National priorities are focused on completing the constitutional review, forming political parties, establishing local governments, continuing dialogue with Somaliland, strengthening revenue collection and building State institutions, among other things. AMISOM had been called upon to support Parliament’s pursuit of those goals and the enhancement of its role as the forum for political debate. Noting that 15 per cent of new parliamentarians are aged between 25 and 35 years, he said 24 per cent of them are women — two social categories representing the majority of Somalia’s people.The past four months also saw sustained international engagement in a political process aimed at ending the Federal Government’s four-year mandate in 2016, he noted, cautioning that such gains could be compromised if the current political unease in regional states was not tackled, since such tensions could activate armed groups wishing to exploit such convoluted environments.‘Substantial and unprecedented achievement for Somali women’In her remarks, to the Council, Asha Gelle Dirie, Founder and Executive Director of the Asha Gelle Foundation and Chairperson of the Committee of Goodwill Ambassadors, said that, as the Committee Chair tasked by the President with helping women secure 30 per cent of the seats in Parliament, she had found the advancement of women’s political empowerment challenging. Working towards that goal entailed mapping the distribution of seats per clan and launching “an advocacy campaign involving civil society actors, political lobbyists, as well as Federal and state Women’s Affairs Ministries, to secure the buy-in of political leaders and clan elders,” she explained, thanking the UN and the international community for their support.“This is a substantial and unprecedented achievement for Somali women, and for Somali society as a whole,” she said, noting at the same time the numerous serious challenges they had faced, and that despite real progress “a massive structural transformation is required to advance women’s representation in politics and the democratization process.”Ms. Dirie said the absence of a legally binding provision had made it extremely difficult to enforce the political decision to reserve 30 per cent of parliamentary seats, which made it critically important to secure such a provision in order to further advance political equality for women. While women had presented a unified position during the electoral process, a lack of funding and logistical support posed a significant challenge during the campaign period, she said, stressing that provisions for adequate support and the creation of a level playing field would be critical for the future success of women candidates.

Ohio State mens soccer swats injury bug

The Ohio State Buckeyes men’s soccer team is on the verge of getting healthy – finally. OSU (1-2-1) has gotten contributions from players that have recently returned from injury and, with one notable exception, more players are expected to rejoin the team. Coach John Bluem, who will start working previously injured players back into the lineup, told The Lantern he is looking forward to having a healthy team back together. “We’re not completely injury free,” Bluem said. “We’re a little bit nicked up right now. Guys are returning from injuries, but it has slowed down our ability to have everybody fit and ready to contribute at times.” Bluem is especially concerned about senior defender Ben Killian, who fractured a bone in his foot. “Ben will probably red shirt this year,” Bluem said. “He broke his fifth metatarsal . That’s a tough injury to come back from. He might be able to rejoin us for practices in late October but his fitness will not be good enough to play.” However, there are other valuable players Bluem is happy to bring off the bench, including sophomore forward Kenny Cunningham. “Kenny had some good minutes tonight and he’s just returning from an injury,” Bluem said. Cunningham returned to the lineup Aug. 24 in a game against Dayton after tearing his hip flexor. In just his third game back, Cunningham scored the game-winner in overtime against Davidson Sunday to help OSU clinch its second consecutive Bert and Iris Wolstein Clasic championship. “I’m definitely trying to come back strong and work on everything,” Cunningham said. “I know I’m not in the best shape I can be in and I just need to work on my fitness.” Senior midfielder Sebastian Rivas agrees with Bluem that there are plenty of players to bring off the bench. “Depth-wise, we have a lot of people who can start to come off the bench and start and contribute for us,” Rivas said. “Now that we’re starting to get healthy I think we can all start giving 100 percent.” Bluem said he knows rebounding from injuries can be a struggle, but he is looking forward to having most of his team back together soon. “Hopefully we can go through a stretch soon where we stop having injuries,” Bluem said. OSU continues play Friday at San Diego. Kickoff is set for 10:30 p.m. read more

Pilot halts deportation of Afghan asylum seeker by refusing to fly when

first_imgIn a highly unusual move, the Turkish Airlines pilot reportedly came out of the plane and said “you’re not going to take him, I’m not flying. Someone’s life is at risk.”Under European Aviation Safety Agency regulations, pilots are responsible for the “safety of the aircraft and of all crew members, passengers and cargo on board”, giving them authority over the passengers on board an aircraft when it takes off.The Afghan came to Britain two years ago through the migrant camps at Calais in France and claimed he was at risk from the Taliban because of his job at a construction company with links to the Afghan government and US corporations.When he arrived in the UK in 2015, Mr Bigzad went to Kent to care for his father – a British citizen who claimed he was tortured by the Taliban in the 1990s. But Mr Bigzad was refused asylum and was denied permission to appeal. He was later reportedly detained during a routine immigration appointment.His family are now attempting to get the Afghan interior ministry to notify the British Government that they cannot guarantee his welfare in Afghanistan, as part of a bid for a fresh asylum claim. Afghan Samim Bigzad, 22, was due to be deported Afghan Samim Bigzad, 22 “We don’t know the name of the pilot but there are so many people who would like to thank him.” Turkish Airlines had not responded to request for comment. The Home Office said it would not comment on individual cases.  An Afghan asylum seeker’s deportation was prevented on Tuesday after the pilot of the plane on which he was supposed to be removed reportedly refused to take off.Samim Bigzad, 22, had been booked on a Turkish Airlines flight after his application for asylum failed. A petition to delay his deportation had attracted 3,000 signatures.Campaigners went to Heathrow Airport to tell passengers about Mr Bigzad’s situation, asking them to raise it with airline staff if they felt comfortable doing so.Mr Bigzad was reportedly hysterical as he was escorted on to the flight, claiming he could be beheaded by the Taliban.Kavel Rafeferty, a British woman who had been hosting Mr Bigzad in Kent, later received a message from him saying he had returned to a detention centre in the UK after “the pilot said no”, the Independent reported.“The last message I’d had from him was so sad – it just said ‘they’ve come to take me’ and then the phone was switched off,” said Ms Rafferty.“But then he rang that night and told me ‘the pilot said no’. He was happy and relieved and shocked – it was a lot to go through in one day. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Finsbury Park terror trial Darren Osborne denies driving van and blames Dave

first_imgWhen he was asked if he had contact with Terry and Dave after the attack, Osborne told the court: “We were planning to form a group, like the Welsh far-right group. We were going to call ourselves the ‘Taffia’.”Osborne also told the court he plotted with two men to “plough through as many” people as possible at a pro-Palestinian march in central London the day before.Mr Corbyn was also believed to be attending the event but was not there, and road closures meant there was no way for the vehicle to get close to marchers, the court heard, prior to the attack that was carried out.During cross examination, Mr Rees asked Osborne: “Were you hoping that you would have an opportunity to attack Jeremy Corbyn and kill him?”Osborne replied “Oh yeah”, adding: “It would be one less terrorist off our streets.”The jury had earlier been told how witnesses described the white vehicle accelerating as it approached the group, leaving them “splattered all over the place” and killing father of six Makram Ali, 51. Metropolitan Police handout image from body worn video recorded following Darren Osborne's initial detention in the early hours of June 19 2017 The court heard that at the end of the interview, Mr Dring asked: “Finally from me, is there anything at all that you know about that could harm anyone?””Mr Osborne says ‘No’.”After a pause Osborne added “I’m flying solo”, Mr Rees told the jury. Ms Wilding said: “How was it that you ended up in the Finsbury Park area?”Osborne said: “It was Jeremy Corbyn’s constituency. That’s what gave us the idea.”He added that they were looking for the mosque.Ms Wilding said: “Did you know whether Dave or Terry were also going to be in the Finsbury Park area.”He replied: “Yes they were going to meet me there.”Osborne said the trio had originally planned to go to Rochdale, Greater Manchester, adding: “That was our intended target.”Asked if this plan had been put into effect, he said: “Unfortunately not.” Ms Wilding said: “Do you know Dave’s other name?”Osborne said: “No, I do not.”Prosecuting barrister Jonathan Rees QC, said: “Somehow he (Dave) seems to have got away even though he was the driver.”Both prosecutor and defendant agreed that this was “remarkable”. A man accused of carrying out the Finsbury Park terror attack has denied driving the van which mowed down Muslim worshippers in north London – blaming a man called “Dave” instead.Darren Osborne denied deliberately driving at people outside two mosques shortly after 12.15am on June 19 last year, leaving one dead and several injured.He said the driver of the van was a man called Dave, whose surname he did not know – and he also told a court he had hatched a plot to kill Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.Osborne told Woolwich Crown Court he had been planning to set up a Welsh far-right group with Dave and another man, Terry Jones, to be called the Taffia.In the dock Osborne, of Glyn Rhosyn in Cardiff,  said all he could remember of the attack was peering out the van before the moment of impact, which he said “sort of reminded me of Hungry Hippos”.Osborne admitted he had earlier been driving the van, but claimed he was in the footwell of the passenger seat removing his trousers before the moment of impact.

Winds should gradually ease from the west during Thursday afternoon.”In addition, a spell of heavy rain will accompany the wind with the highest rainfall totals over parts of western Scotland.” The yellow warning remains in place until 3pm.Met Office forecaster Sophie Yeomans said: “Over the rest of England and Wales it will just be a strong, blustery day.”With any outdoor events planned, it may be something people are unprepared for or come as unexpected compared to the weather we have had recently.” Gale-force winds of up to 100mph have battered the UK as Storm Hector hit, with the Met Office warning of a threat to life.Much of Britain is covered by a yellow warning, but the north and west of Northern Ireland – which will see the first winds hit – was subject to a more serious amber warning.The Met Office said injuries and a danger to life was “likely” in coastal areas in Northern Ireland, with the chance of large waves and potential for beach debris to end up on roads, sea fronts and properties.It said winds had reached 100mph at the very exposed Cairngorms in Scotland.People have been advised to take care during rush hour, with potential disruption due to fallen trees.

Northern Minerals to cash in on EV boom for rare earths

first_imgThe following is based on an article in yesterday’s Financial Review Digital Edition. While investors scout for potential winners among lithium and nickel plays, an ASX-listed rare earths miner is on the cusp of cashing into the looming growth in the electric vehicles market. Eight years after it was first considered as a greenfield exploration venture, rare earths miner Northern Minerals’ Browns Range project in Western Australia is finally set to start production by June-end.The fully owned project, 160 km southeast of Halls Creek in the East Kimberley region, is rich in high-value, heavy rare earth element dysprosium. This is a critical additive in permanent magnet motors that are used in wind turbines, industrial robotics, and electric vehicles. “Currently, 98% of the global supply of dysprosium comes from China, which means Browns Range would be the first major non-Chinese production facility in the world,” the article reports.‘‘We plan to produce 50 t initially so we will be a small player, but what we want to do is demonstrate the security of supply outside of China,’’ Northern Minerals Managing Director George Bauk says.The company revised its plans in 2017 and decided the best way to develop the project was to first build a pilot plant. It has since taken about 13 months to complete the fabrication and installation of the facility. Northern Minerals has so far spent A$175 million on the development of the project, including the pilot plant with annual capacity of 72,000 t of ore, along with two stages of processing at site – beneficiation and hydro-metallurgy.The three-year pilot project is targeted to produce 573 t/y of total rare earth oxides, of which 50 t will be dysprosium. First shipment is due for the September quarter.Bauk says the decision to start small was one of the best choices the company has made. ‘‘OEMs and global buyers are quite cautious about the capability of small companies transitioning from early stage explorer to being a producer of an industrial mineral,’’ he says.‘‘The pilot plant is all about evaluating the technical and economic aspects of the project. It is really important in industrial minerals like rare earths to demonstrate we can provide to the market a product within specifications.’’The pilot plant has been constructed at 10% of the potential full capacity, at which point the miner is targeting an annual output of 300 t of dysprosium, or roughly between 10 and 12% of the global production at that time.But before that, it has outlined other plans for expansion. Northern Minerals is evaluating ore-sorting technology, and plans to implement this by end of the year. It also wants to move into the downstream phase by eventually implementing separation technology at the site. This will allow it to convert the mixed rare earth carbonate into separated oxides.‘‘The biggest benefit is reaching a much broader market,’’ Bauk says. ‘‘A major risk of producing mixed rare earth carbonate is you have a limited market of buyers, but separated oxides open up a lot other opportunities.’’Given the unique nature of the project, as well as the opaque markets for dysprosium, funding for Browns Range has been somewhat challenging. But the company has tackled this in rather innovative ways.It set up a debt-factoring deal with New York financier Brevet under which it has received quarterly advance payments against research and development funding support due from the Australian government in 2017/18.It also negotiated an A$11 million deal with EPC contractor Sinosteel for a deferred payment system where Sinosteel funded 20% of expenditure, and also tied up a A$10 million prepayment against a forward sales of its pilot plant output to a unit of China’s Guangdong Rare Earths group.Northern Minerals has also done several equity placements, including a convertible note issue in the US. It last raised A$12 million through a heavily oversubscribed share purchase plan in January from existing shareholders.The explorer now aims to resume drilling shortly. As per the current resource estimate spread over its six deposits, Browns Range has a mine life of 11 years, but Bauk says this has been limited by how much drilling has been done so far.Given its massive land area spread over 60 km by 30 km, and the fact that resources are open at depth and spread in many directions, he estimates there is much more life in the project. ‘‘The potential upside is significant,’’ he says.last_img read more

La migration record des jeunes tortues marines

first_imgLa migration record des jeunes tortues marines Les tortues de mers, déjà réputées pour parcourir de très longues distances vers leurs lieux de pontes, effectueraient également au début de leur vie une migration des plus impressionnantes, selon une nouvelle étude. Si les tortues de mers adultes sont des championnes de la nage sur longue distance, leurs prouesses restent toutefois bien moindre à côté du périlleux parcours qu’elles effectuent au stade juvénile. Peter Meylan, professeur de sciences naturelles au collège Eckerd en Floride, a récemment découvert que les petites tortues effectuaient après leur naissance une migration qu’il décrit comme bien “plus étonnante” que celles accomplies par les adultes pour rejoindre le lieu de ponte.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?
Cet exode n’est entrepris qu’une seule fois au cours de la vie des tortues. “Il peut représenter des dizaines de milliers de kilomètres” souligne le chercheur dans un communiqué. Pour en arriver à une telle découverte, Peter Meylan et sa femme Ann Meylan, de l’institut de recherche sur la vie sauvage de Floride, ont analysé les données de suivi des tortues marines du Costa Rica récoltées sur de nombreuses années.Les résultats de leur étude, publiées dans le Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, mettent en évidence une série de longues distances parcourues de façon récurrente chez les jeunes tortues avant que celles-ci ne soient complètement développées. La migration débute du Costa Rica pour finir vers des contrées lointaines telles que les Bermudes. A ce point, les jeunes accomplissent leur croissance. “Ils arrivent avec la taille d’une assiette et repartent avec la taille d’une baignoire”, précise Peter Meylan.Mais selon les chercheurs, ces migrations juvéniles représentent un danger pour les tortues marines, suggérant un renforcement de la protection des couloirs océaniques empruntés lors de leurs périlleux parcours.

Good News A Series of Unfortunate Events Is Just Like the Books

first_img What to Look Forward to in Entertainment in 2017The First Full A Series of Unfortunate Events Trailer Stay on target It’s tough to write a proper review of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Netflix show that debuted last weekend, without wondering what made the original book series so memorable.So here’s the TL;DR version: if you liked the young adult book series by Lemony Snicket (a pen name for Daniel Handler), you’ll probably enjoy the show. If you think you’ll like a series that combines incredibly dark humor, the titular series of unfortunate events, and an assortment of gags based on wordplay and literary conventions, you’ll like the show. It’s a faithful adaptation of the books, with careful attention given to set design–which makes use of color and curves to create an unsettling atmosphere for the audience–and to the aforementioned wordplay.Neil Patrick Harris plays the villain Count Olaf, and revels in the part (even if he seems to enjoy the disguises a lot more than the character itself). The three child actors that play the Baudelaire orphans Violet, Klaus, and Sunny (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith respectively), all fall into their roles overtime and bring a sense of calm to the chaotic, quirky events of the show. Every supporting actor is perfect: from Alfre Woodward to K. Todd Freeman to Catherine O’Hara, Cobie Smulders, Will Arnett, and everybody else. They all understand the source material and either ham up the intricacies of their characters or play them down in crazy situations.Special attention should be given to Patrick Warburton, who plays the author and injects himself into the story at opportune moments. His deadpan, monotone delivery works to give the Baudelaire orphans’ story an extra shot of woe, and his own narrative, which involves mourning over the love of his life and finding the pieces of the conspiracy that tie up the story, doesn’t overwhelm the plot and makes for an added element of tension. Plus, his costumes are delightful.All of this is just padding as the show mostly focuses on the source material and how to deliver it to a television/streaming/Netflix/whatever you call this nowadays audience. The story is chronological but never streamlined. At some points, it feels like it’s filled with more anecdotes by Snicket and narration than with actual plot. The Baudelaire orphans themselves are not complete characters. They become more fleshed out as the books continue, but they have the exact traits needed to get out of every situation, but none of the agency to do it themselves. They’re mostly placeholders for Snicket’s goals, which is to revel in wordplay, create logic puzzles, and teach common literary techniques to children.And it’s something I forgot about. I read the series back when it first came out, getting each book as it was released. I was the perfect age for it: just old enough to begin to understand story structure and long for challenging narratives but not mature enough to want complicated characters or ambiguous endings. A Series of Unfortunate Events is dark and foreboding, and there are no happy endings in sight for the characters, but it never pretended to be anything else.As the years went on, I remembered some obvious elements: the outlandish evil of Count Olaf, how Violet ties her hair up in a ribbon before she tackles a problem, how you shouldn’t go swimming up to an hour after eating. But what I failed to remember was the dedication it had to educating its young audience, to make them more like Violet, Klaus, and Sunny.For example, there’s a moment in episode three of A Series of Unfortunate Events where the camera pans over from the central action to Lemony Snicket, sitting in a plush, gaudy chair. This in itself isn’t astounding–it happens quite often–but this occurred after Dr. Montgomery Montgomery told the three Baudelaire orphans that no harm would come to them in the Reptile Room.Snicket knows otherwise and points to this as an example of a technique that is utilized throughout the book series and now, the Netflix show: dramatic irony.“Dramatic irony is when a person makes a remark and someone who hears it knows something, which makes the remark have a different, usually unpleasant, meaning… For that reason when we hear Uncle Monty tell the children [see quote above], we should be on guard for the unpleasant arrival of dramatic irony.”Joe Lederer / NetflixSo we know that Uncle Monty, who provides relief for both the audience and the children after the first two episodes, is going to die. Those episodes, based off the first book “The Bad Beginning,” has the three orphans whisked away from their lives and into the home of Count Olaf, who abuses them and will stop at nothing to get possession of their family fortune. His mansion is bleak and coated in what looks like a thick layer of dust and mold. Compared to the house across the street–a landscaped lawn, a white picket fence, a mahogany library–we were met with a visual nightmare, and that was before Olaf started in on his scheme to marry an underage girl to get her money. This is all just another day in the Baudelaires’ lives, which is just full of dramatic irony. And evil. Olaf is obviously evil, and a happy life is just out of reach.The episode itself loves to play with the audience’s’ expectations, especially for those who aren’t familiar with the source material. Monty–played delightfully by Aasif Mandvi–is on the verge of death for his entire appearance. He’s around snake venom, Count Olaf in disguise drops a pot on his head, and he gets kidnapped by henchmen. He does eventually die, by the way, as do most of the adults in the children’s lives except for, of course, Count Olaf and anybody else who would want to cause them pain.Dramatic irony is storytelling 101, even if we don’t realize it. So, we the audience know that the Baudelaires are doomed. We just don’t know when it’ll hit and what shape that gloom will take. You can guess, based on Snicket’s constant warnings to watch something more pleasant, that it’ll be consistent and smothering. Regardless, when the show introduces a glimmer of hope for the children, your knowledge of events tells you that it’s going to disappear soon. People looking out for it can see it immediately.Joe Lederer / NetflixThat means the show can then play around with your expectations. You know things are going to go horribly, but what if they put in this element that built up the tension and made you feel hopeful? There’s one running sequence that I won’t spoil here, but its inclusion feels like emotional manipulation at its finest. It’s like watching somebody slowly wrap a gift and place it under a tree, only to find out that it really doesn’t matter because the tree is on Mars and Earth doesn’t exist anymore, so you’ll never find out what’s in the box anyway.But that’s the point. A Series of Unfortunate Events has always been less about story and more about playing around with conventions. Snicket (the character) will introduce a word, tell the audience what it means, and that word will then pop up throughout the dialogue. He’ll drop in foreshadowing as a way for the audience to pay extra attention to it, only to not be straightforward in how it plays out.A lot of us may know what dramatic irony is, but children who are reading or watching the show now understand too. This goes for all the concepts, vocabulary words, and quirky set pieces that make up A Series of Unfortunate Events. The joy in picking apart the material here is finding the repetitious elements that Handler has carefully placed and how they shape the writing and the narrative itself. What has been most delightful, if you can say that, about watching the show after all this time is remembering how that all went down.last_img read more

Scalable wind turbine might fit on your roof

first_img Explore further When you think of wind power, you probably picture gigantic wind turbines spinning gracefully in the middle of large open areas. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Citation: Scalable wind turbine might fit on your roof (2008, May 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-05-scalable-turbine-roof.html But an entrepreneur from Fullerton, California, has invented a new wind turbine design that is smaller, scalable, and could potentially fit on the roofs of homes like a long satellite antenna. Rather than a single giant rotor with 50-foot-long blades, Doug Selsam´s “Sky Serpent” design uses several small rotors attached to a single shaft. By placing the rotors in precise positions and angles, each rotor can harvest its own wind, and avoid simply stealing the wake from the adjacent rotor. The entire turbine is hooked up to a single generator, which produces about the same amount of power as a turbine that uses 10 times as much blade material, Selsam says.The shaft that holds the rotors can vary in length, and use any number and size of rotors, depending on its application. The rotors can even be mounted on poles that are light enough to be hand-held or attached to the roof of a house. Using ten 18-inch rotors, for example, one Sky Serpent model can generate between 100 and 400 watts, depending on wind speed.Selsam has been working on the Sky Serpent design since 1999, with support from a $75,000 grant from the California Energy Commission. Working out of his garage and doing tests in a makeshift wind tunnel, he´s built a seven-rotor turbine that can generate 3,000 watts, as well as a dual-rotor turbine that generates 2,000 watts. He´s already sold 20 of the 2,000-watt devices to homeowners. Another 3,000-watt prototype uses 25 rotors, where the shaft is attached to the ground at one end and held in the sky by a balloon at the other. In another concept, the turbine can float near the surface of water, its shaft and propellers extended in the air over the open ocean.In the early ´80s, Selsam attended classes at but never graduated from the University of California at Irvine. However, his multi-rotor designs have received positive feedback from former General Electric turbine tester Brent Scheibel, who now runs a wind-testing facility in Tehachapi, California. “Doug´s idea is one of the very, very few that I´ve seen that actually has a strong chance of making strides into the commercial world,” Scheibel said in an interview with Popular Science.As the wind turbine industry grows by more than 40 percent per year, Selsam hopes that the simple Sky Serpent design will simplify the manufacturing, transportation, and installation compared with conventional turbines – as well as provide more energy and be less of an eyesore.via: Popular Science, Tech.Blorge.com, and SpeakerFactory.net (Left) Doug Selsam with a prototype 25-rotor turbine that can generate 3,000 watts, while the other end is held up by a balloon.

in Greek legend it is the spilled breast milk of the goddess Hera Now however one-third of people cannot see Earth’s galaxy at night because of artificial lighting which affects nearly 80% of the globe The findings part of a new atlas of worldwide light pollution suggest that the problem is poised to get worse without regulatory action “This atlas is really a useful communications tool to open everybody’s eyes” says Travis Longcore a spatial scientist at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles Longcore studies urban ecology and was not involved in the study “What a horrible thing to do to us as a species to live in permanent twilight and never be able to see the stars” Light pollution has intensified in the past half-century increasing about 6% each year in North America and Europe according to research published using a previous atlas created 15 years ago by the same researchers That atlas and the new study define “light-polluted skies” as having a luminance of 14 or more microcandelas per square meter—about 10% higher than normal night sky brightness levels The new atlas shows that now more than 80% of humanity experiences light-polluted night skies which includes roughly 83% of Earth’s population and more than 99% of Europeans and Americans By population Singapore has the world’s most light-polluted skies followed by Kuwait Qatar and the United Arab Emirates—all densely populated countries Africa has the dimmest skies; the top 10 least polluted countries are on the continent More than 83% of the world’s population experiences light-polluted night skies including more than 99% of all Europeans and Americans Light Pollution Science and Technology Institute Such pollution affects more than just our view of the Milky Way Strong artificial lighting at night can cause birds to migrate at the wrong time of season deter nighttime pollinators like bats disrupt underwater ecosystems and even decrease melatonin production in humans leading to disrupted sleep cycles and increased risk of some cancers And these detrimental effects can persist even after the lights have been dimmed or removed “Light pollution is usually seen as a problem that can be solved immediately by turning off the lights” says Light Pollution Science and Technology Institute in Thiene Italy researcher Fabio Falchi co-creator of the atlas described in today’s issue of Science Advances “We can surely lower the levels of light pollution by turning off the lights but we cannot reverse the damage we have already done” In 2001 Falchi and his collaborators produced the first-ever light pollution atlas from data collected by a US Air Force satellite The time lag before the creation of the follow-up atlas was in part due to day jobs held by the Italian co-creators says Falchi who is himself a high school physics teacher But this lag proved fortunate as it allowed the team to draw data from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite instrument on the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite launched in 2011 Using 36 computers and 30000 sky brightness measurements by citizen scientists to calibrate their calculations the team created a model of light pollution around the globe The model was based on the altitude of a given site the angle at which light emitted upward from cities hit the atmosphere and the reflection of that light back to Earth by the atmosphere Overall more than 300 regional maps were stitched together to form the global map The atlas also projects what would happen if all outdoor lighting in Europe switched from common high-pressure sodium lights to energy efficient 4000-K white light-emitting dioed (LED) lights LED lights release more light in the blue part of the spectrum than sodium lights Those blue wavelengths are more easily scattered by Earth’s atmosphere than other colors which would considerably increase the light pollution they ultimately contribute bulb for bulb Blue light is also more easily picked up by the human eye which means that people would perceive even brighter skies The atlas team predicts a two- to threefold increase in worldwide light pollution if they continue to be adopted globally Falchi says that considering this choosing LED lights is akin to stripping an automobile of its emissions control devices to increase engine efficiency “We are searching only for lighting efficiency and not paying attention to the quality of the lights that we are installing” he says Poetry and mythology aside this atlas is also a “first step” toward understanding light pollution’s impacts on wildlife Longcore says Light pollution comes from more than just lightbulbs he notes: The key for many ecological researchers will be developing tools to calculate “horizontal illuminance” the glare and reflection of artificial lighting from clouds and ground surfaces under different types of weather conditions However Longcore sees great potential in the atlas’s ability to raise awareness of a relatively underappreciated issue—and the dangers to both humans and wildlife from putting Earth into a state of “permanent twilight” *Update 13 June 10:25 am: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that artificial lighting at night could lead to an increase of melatonin production The story has been updated to reflect that it could lead instead to a decrease in melatonin whether youre a whistleblower or running for high office.a wearable app should be compatible with a wider array of sports Focus on what the individuals need,Those interested can pick up concealed weapons applications at the sheriff’s department, Jumping out of her abductors car, "But we will suffice to say that we will maintain the dominance and the territorial integrity.

carpet” Ronitwho attended the screening with MotwaneKashyapRam Kapoor and Rajat Barmecha said The filmabout a boy’s struggle to pursue his dream of being a writer much against the wishes of an

Anurag (Kashyap) changed his mind and told me to play the father” Ronit said Motwanewho co-wrote ‘Dev D’ with Kashyaphas already talked about how he struggled to find a producer for the movie until he Kashyap decided to produce the film and Ronit confirms that initially all they had to get going on the project was their belief in the story “Anurag is a very dear friend and so is Vikram The script came along and the only thing we had when we went into the production was our conviction in the story It was left to Anurag to pay me as and when he could The matter of money did not arise” said Ronit when asked about the difficulties that the team faced during the shooting of the film Did Ronit had an inkling that the film will get such response “Honestlyno When I read the script it was a good filmsomething I liked to do but after shooting for some days I told Vikram that this film is going to be different The whole credit goes to Vikram for the way envisioned and executed the story onscreen I call him a wonder boy” Ronit said The actorwho is a top-billing star on TV and also runs a security agency for Bollywood starshas done some on and off roles on the big screen but ‘Udaan’s reception has made him consider challenging roles outside TV’s arena “I don’t like being selective just for the sake of it But I can’t see myself doing the run-of-the mill roles on TV Over the past decade I have got so used to doing different roles Even in different roles eventually monotony sets in I need the role to pose challenge You want to grow as an actor and at this stage of my career I

up the under-21 European Championships in June with a hat-trick in the opening game against Macedonia (Source: Reuters) Top News Spain and Italy are old foes but when they resume their rivalry in Saturday’s crucial World Cup qualifier all eyes will be on Marco Asensio and Andrea Belotti two youngsters who have revitalised their teams’ attacking options Real Madrid winger Asensio 21 and Torino striker Belotti 23 were absent when Italy knocked Spain out of Euro 2016 last year but have since blossomed into two of the most exciting attacking players in Europe The former world champions are tied on 16 points at the top of Group G and the winner of Saturday’s showdown will be strongly placed to top the group and automatically qualify for the 2018 World Cup leaving the runner up to fight it out in a play-off Central to Italy’s hopes of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu victorious is Belotti nicknamed the rooster who hit 26 goals for Torino last season and has scored four goals from four starts in Italy’s qualifying campaign He picked up where he left off last season by landing an outrageous scissor kick in Torino’s 3-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday prompting coach Sinisa Mihajlovic to remark that the striker was worth 100 million euros ($120 million) Asensio known as the bullfighter by his Madrid teammates has demonstrated his own knack for scoring sensational goals He did so again by netting twice from outside the area in a 2-2 draw with Valencia on Sunday and has totted up four goals already this campaign Asensio lit up the under-21 European Championships in June with a hat-trick in the opening game against Macedonia and helped Spain beat Italy in the semi-finals before finishing runners up to Germany A 10-minute cameo role in a World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein last year and two friendly appearances are his only appearances for Spain’s first team but his rampant start to the season make him a likely starter on his home turf As well as his goals against Valencia Asensio hit two scorching strikes against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup cementing his reputation for delivering on the biggest stage after netting in the Champions League final win over Juventus Asensio has also scored in every competition debut for Madrid and few would bet against him continuing that run in his first competitive start for Spain “We’re going to enjoy him for

virtually wiped out Apart from these an attack also took place on 11 March this year in which an IED blastkilled 12 jawans but didn’t get much traction from the media as it took place on the same day that results to Assembly elections in five states were announced "Multiple factors — from leadership failure to loopholes in the functioning of the security forces — have led to the death of 25 CRPF personnel The most unfortunate part is that despite repeated incidents no lessons are being learned" Prakash Singh said former director general Border Security Force and an expert on Left-wing extremism Factors leading to repeated attacks and killing of jawans: Non following of SOPs: According to local sources aroad opening party (ROP) by the CRPF divided into two groups was having lunch when the ambush occurred According to standard operating procedures (SOPs) instead of sitting together in a large group the jawans should have divided themselves into small groups of four or five "It’s against basic SOP Prima facie evidence indicates this SOP wasn’t followed Ifone jawan takes lunch the other protects Even when jawans march a gap is always maintained Repeated attacks and killings of CRPF personnel indicates failure in following SOPs Secondly was there a quick response team (QRT) to back the ROP" questioned counter-terrorism analyst Anil Kamboj Lack of leadership: Experts have questioned the CRPF leadership from the top to the platoon commandant level The post of director general in the CRPF has been lying vacant for over 50 days and it demoralises the force at all levels Lack of coordination: Lack of coordination between the state police and central forces gives Maoists an opportunity to have the upper hand over CRPF and the police Instead of putting the onus of countering Naxalism on the Centre the state police should be at the forefront Combating Naxalism shouldn’t be considered a battle between the Centre and the Maoist cadre Instead of playing second fiddle the Chhattisgarh police have to play an active role" Singh remarked Lack of proper training: Security experts have questioned whether the CRPF personnel are adequately trained in guerrilla warfare against the Maoists in the difficult terrain in Bastar The CoBRA battalion — anelite force within CRPF that is efficiently trained for this purpose — hasonly eight battalions deployed in Bastar Why did the Chhattisgarh government fail to develop an effective anti-Naxal squad like Andhra Pradesh’s Greyhound Poor infrastructure and manpower: According to sources out of 425 sanctioned police stations in Chhattisgarh only 403 exists; out of which 161 don’t have vehicles Many police stations in these highly sensitive areas are half-staffed as policemen prefer not to have postings there Nearly 10000 vacancies have fallen short in Chhattisgarh police Intelligence failure:"Obviously the large number of Maoists who led the ambush were not paratrooped on a single day Why did CRPF fail to get information about their movement and gathering" questioned Singh former DGP UP police Area domination:"CRPF personnel are there to protect the road construction work and the workers But if they are unable to defend themselves from Maoist attacks how can we expect them to protect the area The foremost requirement in combating Maoists is area domination Repeated ambushes shows failure on the part of security forces in this effort" added Kamboj a former senior fellow at IDSA Written by Kalpana Sharma | Published: March 17 2016 12:00 am Related News When public figures speak violence the fallout goes beyond their immediate targets In ways seen and unseen those most affected are often women Recently we saw an illustration of this during the Jat quota stir In a sea of men blocking highways and railway tracks women were invisible In fact they were not there at all Yet they figured not as participants but as targets Although everyone seems to deny that any molestation or rapes occurred at the end of February there are several reports that suggest that women were attacked and that most of them will not speak out That is hardly surprising Did we not see that in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013 In the communal riots preceding the 2014 general elections only after the violence had subsided an estimated 60 people had died and 60000 mostly Muslims had been displaced did the stories of rape begin to be told Till today there has been no closure Just a few days ago one of those cases was closed because the survivor and her family “turned hostile” another way of saying that they were either intimidated or decided to keep quiet for fearof consequences Share This Article Related Article Despite changes in the rape law and an increase in general awareness after the 2012 gangrape in Delhi the reality for rape survivors who fight for justice is either endless delay and humiliation or threats forcing them to withdraw charges Statistics of the low conviction rate amply illustrate this reality Muzaffarnagar and Murthal tell us the same story When there is public violence by way of riots or agitations the consequence is often heightened levels of violence against women This is not unique to India Studies around the world have established this reality in multiple locations The most ghastly in recent memory is Rwanda where during the genocide in 1994 when Hutus systematically eliminated Tutsis in the course of 100 days of violence an estimated half a million women were raped or killed The legacy of that violence has still not been erased In the current atmosphere in India where statements are made almost on a daily basis about chopping off heads slicing tongues and taking revenge there is real reason to worry This kind of heightened violence much of it going unchallenged and even endorsed by the very people who should be stopping it leaves all women vulnerable not just those belonging to the targeted groups What this does is that it makes violence acceptable as a way of settling scores If ministers in the government speak such language and they get away without being reprimanded and are not even hauled up for hate speech then what is to stop any person from assuming that such talk and the actions that follow are permissible While data has established that the majority of incidents of violence against women occur in the home or familiar neighbourhoods a heightened atmosphere of violence affects women’s access to the public space At such times the problem is viewed as a breakdown in law and order In fact it is a direct fallout of a culture of political violence that is deliberately perpetuated and thereby becomesthe norm The government needs to recognise this and address it because it undercuts its stated efforts to “empower” women Beti bachao and beti padhao will remain empty slogans if girls fear stepping out to go to school or women are terrified at the thought of giving birth to another girl who will have to confront increasing violence at home and outside A survey conducted by the group Breakthrough in 2014 in five states and 15 districts in India indicated that girls on their way to school had to fight off sexually explicit verbal comments stalking and sometimes molestation The unsafe spaces women listed included bus stops railway stations open toilets public toilets markets and streets In other words practically all public spaces In election season women will be more constrained and restricted if these public spaces that they must necessarily negotiate every single day also become the sites of political violence The fear of molestation and rape will hold young girls back from attending school prevent women from going out to work and in myriad other ways directly affect their mobility The more dangerous aspect is not just the random violence in the public space but the targeted one when women become a part of the plan to wreak vengeance by one group of men on another This is what we saw in Muzaffarnagar And this is what could repeat itself as the electoral temperature rises particularly in Uttar Pradesh These realities are constantly obscured in the continuous
