Gregory Brewer consecrated as bishop of Central Florida

Brewer, right, as the fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida. Photo/Joe Thoma[Episcopal News Service] More than 3,500 people attended First Baptist Church of Orlando on March 24 to participate in the consecration of Gregory O. Brewer as the fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, while many watched the event on live streaming video.The Very Rev. Justyn Terry, dean and president of Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, was the preacher.He described Brewer, 60, as “a man of prayer, vision, pastoral heart, strategic mind. He is a man of the Gospel, with a love for the lost and a love for the church. He is a preacher and a teacher of the word of God. But most of all he knows and loves Jesus Christ and moves in the power of His spirit.”Bishop Clifton Daniel III of East Carolina led the service as chief consecrator on behalf of Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.Co-consecrators were John Howe, retiring bishop of Central Florida; William Love, bishop of Albany; Michael Smith, bishop of North Dakota; William Folwell, retired bishop of Central Florida; Francis Gray, retired bishop of Northern Indiana; and Barry Howe, retired bishop of West Missouri.A prayer rug, designed by Bishop Azad Marshall of Iran and woven by Christians in Pakistan, was used as the site for the prayer of consecration.Choirs from parishes throughout the diocese joined forces to provide choral music for the service, including two pieces written for the consecration: Ubi Caritas, a motet by Peter Mathews; and Let the People Praise You, an anthem by B. Lane and M. Miller. The massed choir also performed Hubert Parry’s I Was Glad during the opening procession. A psalm and composition for organ, brass, timpani and unison sopranos also were commissioned especially for the service. All composers are members of the diocese.Brewer’s pectoral cross and episcopal ring were gifts from Calvary-St. George’s in New York, where he was serving as rector at the time of his election on Nov. 19, 2011. Before being called to ministry at Calvary-St. George’s in 2009, Brewer had served as rector of Church of the Good Samaritan in Paoli, Pennsylvania, for 11 years.He was assistant professor of pastoral theology at Trinity School For Ministry in Ambridge from 1992-1996. For 16 years before that he had served parishes in Winter Park, Florida, including Episcopal Church of the New Covenant, a diocesan church plant.Following his consecration, Brewer said that it is his “deep desire that in the midst of genuinely sacrificial mission we never forget eating and drinking and laughter and joy and knowing all that we share as we literally gather together … as a foretaste of the heavenly banquet of Christ … May we be known as a diocese that eats and celebrates and laughs together often and heartily.”Choosing First Baptist Church rather than the Cathedral Church of St. Luke as the site of the consecration wasn’t just about space.“To be here is not merely a matter of convenience because of the size of the church,” Brewer said after the consecration. “I really hope that this is a very clear, public signal that we, along with the rest of the leadership in the Diocese of Central Florida, regardless of our denominational position, can stand together for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”Brewer succeeds the Rt. Rev. John W. Howe, who is retiring after serving the Central Florida diocese as its bishop since 1990.Brewer is married to the former Laura Lee Williams of Orlando; they have five children.The Diocese of Central Florida has 31,000 baptized members at 88 parishes and missions in 15 counties.

In Northern California, a Christmas service for special-needs children

first_imgIn Northern California, a Christmas service for special-needs children In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Erin Rath says: Associate Rector Columbus, GA martha Knight says: December 20, 2016 at 4:26 pm How wonderful! Coni Johnston says: Rector Collierville, TN The Rev. Andrew Kadel, interim priest-in-charge at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Lincoln, California, as Santa, listens to the wishes of a young participant during the Christmas party after the service. Photo: Paula Schaap[Diocese of Northern California] Big stuffed monkeys scattered on the floor in front of the altar and beanbag chairs weren’t what you’d expect to see at St. James’ Episcopal Church, Lincoln, California, which usually holds services in its simple white-washed church building in traditional prayer book fashion.But on Dec. 17, the parish had prepared its worship space for a different kind of service – a Christmas service for special-needs children and their families.Just as the Christmas story is one story of journeys – the young couple looking for a place to have their baby, the shepherds and the three wise men looking for the savior – the evolution of St. James’ service was also a journey, one that began with the mother of an autistic child who wanted a way for her son to be in church. The mother’s priest, the Rev. Andrew Kadel, interim priest-in-charge at St. James’ connected with the Rev. Sarah Quinney, assistant rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Roseville, who wanted to bring the children she works with as a music therapist into the church she loves.Developing a special-needs serviceFor Quinney, who led the special-needs service at St. James’, it was a chance to develop the kind of service she had wanted to see happen since she went to seminary at Church Divinity School of the Pacific. As a music therapist experienced in working with children on the autism spectrum and other special-needs children, Quinney has a passion for finding ways to help them enjoy worship with the rest of the church.“Until we figure out a way where they can experience all the sacraments with us in worship, we’re not actually being the church, because they’re not welcome around the table,” she said recently. “They can’t come around the table because their body and their brain don’t allow it. We need to come around their table.”The Rev. Sarah Quinney, assistant priest at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Roseville, California, and a music therapist, leads a special-needs Christmas service that she helped design. Photo: Paula SchaapWhen she was in seminary, Quinney developed a Eucharist for autistic children as a project for her liturgics class, a service she presented at a youth ministry day sponsored by CDSP and the Diocese of California. Though it was a good way to work out the theology of such a service and invite discussion from the attendees, children weren’t present. So Quinney, now assistant rector at St. John’s, Roseville, California, still hadn’t seen her theory put into practice.Until St. James’ came to her for her expertise.Making connections in the dioceseThe congregation is in an agricultural center, north of Sacramento, that is experiencing some of the highest rates of suburban growth in the nation, mostly from retirees, but also from families attracted to the region’s lower-cost, newer housing.Maria and Drew Johnston and their three boys are one of those young families who live in Lincoln community and attend St. James’. The Johnstons’ 13-year-old son, Braden, is autistic and his oldest brother has been diagnosed as being on the spectrum with Asperger’s Syndrome. Tyler, their middle son, is “neuro-typical,” Maria Johnston said, as she described a desire to see a service that could include her family. And not only her family.“It’s a joyous way to help families who feel isolated,” she said, speaking from her own experience. “We want the families to know that we hear them, we see them. They are precious to us, as they are to God.”Drew and Maria Johnston with their son, Braden, who is holding the picture he drew for the special-needs Christmas service bulletin. Photo: Paula SchaapBut having Johnston’s desire turn into a full service needed connections to someone who could support that commitment while also figuring out a liturgy that would work. The Diocese of Northern California has been trying to strength its ability to connect people with resources elsewhere in the diocese. One way is through a reorganized deanery structure and it was the deanery structure that made the special-needs connection happen.When the Rev. Cliff Haggenjos, the rector at St. John’s and dean of the Central Deanery, heard about Johnston’s plans to start a service, he referred her to Quinney, said Kadel.Quinney, Johnston and Kadel met a number of time to work out the mechanics of the service and the physical layout to make sure all felt welcomed and safe. Johnston’s son Braden also got involved – a gifted draftsman, he drew and colored the cover for the service program.Another key element was involvement of other Lincoln churches, Kadel said, including Grace Lutheran Church, where Pastor Judith Morgado was an enthusiastic supporter.“It’s very important that this kind of service be a community service and not about a single parish or denomination,” he said. “We need to provide a time for relaxed and non-judgmental worship for families who have all sorts of pressures on them.”A special service happensHence the stuffed animals. And the beanbag chairs because autistic and other special-needs children often need something that makes them feel safe when too much stimulation overwhelms them.The parish had always been supportive of including special-needs children. Two years ago, there was a small service that told the story of Noah’s Ark, done by the Rev. Bill Rontani, the rector at the time, in honor of April’s Autism Awareness Month.This, however, was the parish’s first special-needs service for a major holiday. And with all the stress that those holidays bring, organizers were uncertain whether families, who have all the extra pressure of a special-needs child, would be able to come.Emily Rhoades, 19, a helper at the special-needs Christmas service, arranges the nativity scene. Photo: Paula SchaapThe appointed hour arrived. Parish members who had helped rearrange the church to make a safe space in front of the altar for the children sat waiting in the back pews. The children and their families began to enter. Some of the children made a beeline for the front and the stuffed monkeys. Some hung back, preferring the safe arms of their parents.Quinney asked a time-honored question: “Does anyone want to hear a story?”Using wooden carvings of the nativity scene to keep the children’s attention, Quinney told the Christmas story – she described it as a stripped-down version of the one used in the Godly Play version. Colored light from a stained-glass window fell on a boy’s face and the face of the monkey he cradled, as Quinney told them about the angel who told the shepherds: “Run, hurry, go to Bethlehem. A baby has been born. A baby who changes everything.”One girl became restless and was helped out by her caregiver, who made soft chirping sounds to distract her. But the others stayed with Quinney’s narrative all the way through to the end. Then, they sang, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” and sat through a short closing prayer that ended with, “Go forth to eat cookies.”At the Christmas party in the parish hall, Natalie Cooper said she had brought her oldest, son, a special-needs child, along with his younger brother and sister. She said she was happy for “all three kids to connect to the story.”Cooper looked over at her eldest, who had installed himself on a chair next to Santa Claus – Kadel in a Santa costume – after receiving a treat bag.“It’s huge that he’s getting so much time with Santa,” she said.It was also true for a parishioner from Grace Lutheran, an older woman with Down syndrome, who declined to name what she wanted for Christmas, insisting simply, “I love Santa.”The joy in the service and the Christmas party went both ways. “I was looking back at the faces of the families during the service and they looked so pleased,” said St. James’ senior warden Jeptha Rogers. “That was special.”St. James’ is already talking about using their experience with Christmas to develop a special-needs service for Easter.— Paula Schaap is communications director in the Diocese of Northern California.

String of hurricanes bring back students memories of Katrina

first_imgHurricane Season: TCU students and alum chime in with past and present experiences Linkedin Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook Rachael Zimmerman printHurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have all brought rain, wind and destruction to different parts of the world – but they also brought something else. For some TCU students, the storms brought a reminder of everything they’d been through when they were hit by hurricanes.Amanda Kiefer, a junior finance major and New Orleans Native, has found herself thinking about her own time after Hurricane Katrina.“I was only in third grade,” Kiefer said. “But it really marked the end of my childhood for me. It matured a lot of us, understanding how much people lost.”She lived through Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Isaac in 2012. Her family’s home didn’t flood in either storm, but there was significant damage.“Our house had wind damage from Katrina, which ripped apart the roof causing water to get inside the walls,” Kiefer said. “I remember that a lot of people thought we survived the storm and then a day or two later everything really hit the fan when the levees broke.”Junior economics major Bobby O’Leary, from North Palm Beach, Florida, also has the destruction of Katrina stamped clearly in his memory after his family chose not to evacuate.“We had some cracked windows and this huge oak tree in our front yard got struck by lightning, splitting it in down the middle where you could see the burn marks,” O’Leary said. “Half of the tree stayed upright and the other half fell over and smashed our brick driveway, putting a hole in it.”Katrina wasn’t O’Leary’s last hurricane, these powerful storms are something his family has adapted and prepared for.“Our house is literally built for hurricanes, which is why we don’t evacuate,” he said. “The whole house is made out of concrete and so is the foundation. We have hurricane-proof windows, sturdier trusses to reinforce the roof and a generator that’s half the size of a train car that can power the whole house for up to two weeks.”These preparations are part of the reason O’Leary’s family remained safe during the recent Hurricane Irma.While the storms have all blown past, Kiefer said that she knows the weeks after the storm can be the hardest part.“It’s going to feel different at first, but remember why you love your city,” Kiefer said. “It is going to get better down the line, but it’s going to be slow moving and you’re going to have to put in the work. You have to go into this emotionally and mentally knowing it’s not going to be the same for a while.” + posts Rachael Zimmermanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/rachael-zimmerman/ Twitter Facebook Twitter ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin Previous articleHoroscope: October 1, 2017Next articleESPN’s College GameDay set to visit Fort Worth Rachael Zimmerman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU hosts Lettermen’s Hall of Fame induction World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Rachael Zimmerman (Zim) is a Spanish major and Journalism minor from Dallas, Texas.

Molly Martens’ self defence claims are a ‘fantasy’

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat FABRICATION and fantasy is how the US State prosecutor has responded to the self defence claims lodged by killers Molly and Thomas Martens in their appeal against their convictions for killing Limerickman Jason Corbett.Last September, documents filed by the US lawyers defending the Martens stated that the father and daughter were appealing the conviction as Thomas Martens hit Jason with a baseball bat because he was allegedly choking Molly during the early hours of August 2, 2015.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Molly claimed that the US prosecutors did not provide any evidence during the trail to challenge her claims.However, North Carolina’s Department of Justice said last week that sufficient evidence was presented in court to convict the pair of murdering Mr Corbett at his US home.Molly and Thomas Martens were found guilty of second degree murder by a US jury in August last year.Their trial heard how Jason was drugged, beaten with a bat and paving slab as he lay in bed. He was later found by paramedics with brutal head injuries after the Martens called 911.However, the trial heard from prosecutors that the Martens pair delayed calling emergency services and faked performing CPR on Jason.During the trial, expert witnesses testified as to blood patterns and the manner of the attack but they were unable to determine the number of blows suffered by Jason due to the nature and extent of the crush injures suffered to his skull.Both Molly and Thomas Martens received prison sentences of between 20 and 25 years after a lengthy trial in the summer of 2017 but have since lodged appeals.Molly Martens said she was not the aggressor and her father was protecting her. However, the State attorneys have strongly criticised theses claims .“Together they created this fantasy to deceive the authorities and this jury in a fabricated story participated in by both defendants, acting in concert together to attain the ultimate result that they intended,” the documents state.“The self-defence claim of both defendants fell on unreceptive ears because of the obvious use of excessive force, making that defence unavailable in law as well.”The appeal is due to be heard next year by a panel of three judges.Molly Martens had her jail term extended earlier this year after breaching prison rules and is now due to be released in April 2041.

Pankaj Oswal & Ors (Oswal case) , held that the dispute as to the inheritance of shares cannot be decided in a proceeding under Section 241-242 of the Companies Act, 2013 (Companies Act). Supreme Court was also seized of the question as to whether the rights of a nominee of shares & securities under Section 72 of Companies Act is similar or different to the rights of a nominee under the Life Insurance Act 1938, Banking Regulation Act, 1949 and Government Savings Certificate Act, 1959 etc. Factual Matrix The case revolves around the family dispute of the Oswal empire wherein the deceased Mr. Abhay Kumar Oswal during his life time filed a nomination under Section 72 of the Companies Act for the 36% shareholding in the Oswal group in favour of his wife Mrs Aruna Oswal. At the same time, Pankaj Oswal son of late Abhay Kumar Oswal filed a partition suit claiming 1/4th estate and also filed an oppression and mismanagement petition before the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). NCLT dismissed the maintainability objection raised by Ms. Aruna Oswal that Mr Abhay Oswal does not have the minimum threshold of 10% shareholding prescribed under Section 244(1) to file the Petition. The objection was rejected by the NCLT holding that Mr Pankaj Oswal being the legal representative of Late Abhay Kumar Oswal, is entitled to 1/4th shares and in terms of the Judgement of Worldwide Agencies Pvt. Ltd. Margarat T Desor which allowed the legal representative the right to maintain a Petition under Section 397 & 398 of the Companies Act, 1956 (corresponding to Section 241 & 242 of the Companies Act, 2013) the Petition filed by Pankaj Oswal is maintainable . The decision was further affirmed by the National Company Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT). In the Statutory Appeal, the question before the Hon’ble Supreme Court was whether the rights under Section 72 of the Companies Act, 2013 vested all the rights in the shares held by Late Mr. Abhay Kumar Oswal in favour of Mrs. Aruna Oswal. Statutory Provisions & Interpretation The whole controversy of the case revolved around the interpretation of the Section 72 of the act which read as follows; 72. Power to nominate (1) Every holder of securities of a company may, at any time, nominate, in the prescribed manner, any person to whom his securities shall vest in the event of his death. (2) Where the securities of a company are held by more than one person jointly, the joint holders may together nominate, in the prescribed manner, any person to whom all the rights in the securities shall vest in the event of death of all the joint holders. (3) Notwithstanding anything contained in any other law for the time being in force or in any disposition, whether testamentary or otherwise, in respect of the securities of a company, where a nomination made in the prescribed manner purports to confer on any person the right to vest the securities of the company, the nominee shall, on the death of the holder of securities or, as the case may be, on the death of the joint holders, become entitled to all the rights in the securities, of the holder or, as the case may be, of all the joint holders, in relation to such securities, to the exclusion of all other persons, unless the nomination is varied or cancelled in the prescribed manner. (4) Where the nominee is a minor, it shall be lawful for the holder of the securities, making the nomination to appoint, in the prescribed manner, any person to become entitled to the securities of the company, in the event of the death of the nominee during his minority. (emphasis supplied by the Court) The Supreme Court interpreting the above-mentioned section came to a conclusion that words used are “securities shall vest” in the event of death of the holder. Supreme Court also took the benefit of the non- obstante clause of sub Section 3 of Section 72 and held that the “…It is prima facie apparent that vesting is absolute, and the provisions supersede by virtue of a non­obstante clause by stating “any other law for the time being in force”. Prima facie shares vest in a nominee, and he becomes absolute owner of the securities on the strength of nomination…” (Para 15) However, surprisingly the Supreme Court in para 20 of the judgment held that the question as whether absolute right, title, and interest vested in the nominee or not, is to be finally determined by the civil court and the same cannot be decided in the petition filed under Section 241-242 of the Companies Act, 2013. Also, Supreme Court while distinguishing the case of Vishin N. Khanchandani V. Vidya Lachmandas Khanchandani, held that the non-obstante clause of Section 6 of the Government Savings Certificate Act, 1959 doesn’t vest the shares and therefore cannot be applicable to the Section 72 of the companies act. Furthermore, while distinguishing the case of Ram Chander Talwar V. Devender Kumar Talwar Supreme Court held that Section 45-ZA (2) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 does not vest the shares in nominee and therefore would not be applicable to the instant case. Therefore, Supreme Court came to a prima face view that unlike Section 72 of the Companies Act, 2013 which has a vesting right in the nominee in the event of death of the deceased shareholder, there was no similar vesting of the rights in the case of a nominee under the Life Insurance Act, 1938, Government Saving Certificate Act 1959 and Banking Regulation Act, 1949. From the forgoing reason given by the Supreme Court in the Oswal case, one can conclude that unless there is vesting of a right in a nominee, the rights of a nominee are only limited to act as a custodian or a trustee till such time the legal heirs obtain a succession certificate enabling the nominee to transfer the amount received either under the LIC Policies or the Bank Account or the Government Saving Scheme in favour of the rightful legal heirs. Once the vesting of right title and interest in securities is complete under Section 72 of the Companies Act, as held by the Supreme Court can the very same Court say that its view is a prima facie view? How can a civil suit decide the right title and interest in the securities when the title is already vested in a nominee under Section 72 of the Companies Act, 2013 as per the prima facie view of the Supreme Court? Supreme Court having come to such a conclusion in respect of Section 72 of the Companies Act, can it leave the issue to be finally determined by a civil court? Unfortunately, in the judgement, Supreme Court has asked the civil court to examine the rights of a nominee to be adjudicated including the effect of a nomination. If Section 72 of the Companies Act is clear in so far as the vesting of the right is concerned in favour of a nominee, how can a civil suit decide whether the rights of a nominee of shares & securities is an absolute right or not. Can the civil suit hold that the legal heirs are entitled to the shares despite vesting of the rights in favour of a nominee under Section 72 of the Companies Act. In the case in hand even though the Supreme Court was not examining the rights of the Legal representatives to file a Petition under section 241 and 242 of the Companies Act but was examining the question of nomination under section 72 of the Companies Act it has set aside both the judgments of the NCLT and NCLAT and directed the proceedings to be dropped till the civil court determines the question of nomination under section 72 of the Companies Act 2013. Having noted the difference of the right of a nominee under various Acts with that of the Companies Act and having noted the specific vesting of the right under the Companies Act in Section 72, in our humble view, the Supreme Court ought not to have left the question to the civil court to decide the issue of nomination merely on the ground that the suit for partition has been filed by the legal heirs of Late Mr. Abhay Kumar Oswal. Even if the Supreme Court has came to prima facie view that the vesting is absolute, it should have added a caveat that the civil court shall not be influenced by such interpretation as done in the case of A.V. Murthy v. B.S. Nagabasavanna, wherein the court held that; “If the amount borrowed by the respondent is shown in the balance sheet, it may amount to acknowledgment and the creditor might have a fresh period of limitation from the date on which the acknowledgment was made. However, we do not express any final opinion on all these aspects, as these are matters to be agitated before the Magistrate by way of defence of the respondent.” Hon’ble Supreme Court ought to have considered section 430 of the Companies Act 2013 which states that civil court does not have jurisdiction to entertain any suit or proceeding in respect of any matter which the NCLT is empowered to determine. The issue of nomination under section 72 of the Companies Act 2013 therefore should have been ideally left to be decided by the NCLT and not the civil court. Conclusion Also, it is pertinent to mention that can one say the above decision is in rem to be binding on all the Companies and Legal heirs? Is there any legal issue determined by the Supreme Court in regard to the nomination under section 72 of the Companies Act? Unfortunately, our reading of the judgment says that the above judgment does not spell out the ratio decidendi? We are fortified of our views because of the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Shyama Rao Vs. Union Territory of Pondicherry which said “it is right to say that a decision is binding not because of its conclusion but in regard to ratio and principle laid down therein.” Applying the above principle, can it be said that the Hon’ble Supreme Court has laid down the ratio decidendi which led to the judgment in the Oswal case and therefore the ratio decidendi is also binding on all the stakeholders. But if the ratio decidendi is not clear where does one look into? Should one await the judgement of the civil court to be finally approved or disapproved by the Supreme Court? What is the ratio that one can look into from the judgement? Having gone to the extent of examining the differences in the scope of nomination under various Acts, the Supreme Court should not have fallen short of coming to a clear and conclusive decision on the scope of nomination under Section 72 of the Companies Act. In re Harper v. N.C.B.(C.A.) Lord Denning referred with approval to the observations of Lord Dunedin in Mostyn and laid down the four following propositions: “The first proposition is : We can only accept a line of reasoning which supports the actual decision of the House of Lords. By no possibility can we accept any reasoning which would show the decision itself to be wrong. The second proposition is that, if we can discover the reasoning on which the majority based their decision, then we should accept that as binding upon us. The third proposition is that, if we can discover the reasoning on which the minority base their decision, we should reject it. It must be wrong because it led them to the wrong result. The fourth proposition is that, if we cannot discover the reasoning on which the majority based their decision, we are not bound by it. We are free to adopt any reasoning which appears to us to be correct, so long as it supports the actual decision of the House. In our humble view, The Supreme Court in the Oswal case did not authoritatively decide the issue of nomination under Section 72 of the companies act which it could have done otherwise.Views are personal only.(P.

‘World’s Largest Peanut Boil’ underway in Luverne

first_img The World’s Largest Peanut Boil has changed greatly over the years. The peanuts were first boiled in wash pots, 40 pounds at a time. Now, they are boiled in vats, 720 pounds at time.But, no matter how they peanuts are boiled and no matter how long the lines or the wait, they are the best boiled goobers on the planet, said Faye Johns, of Montgomery.“We drive down to Luverne every year to get boiled peanuts,” she said. “These peanuts cannot be beaten. There’s something about the flavor. They are just the best boiled peanuts you’ll ever eat.”She bought enough for her own pleasure and a few bags to take to a friend who lives in Memphis, Tennessee. Johns believes, as many do, that the Crenshaw County Shriners’ peanuts do have a special flavor – flavor that comes when peanuts are boiled with love and a purpose.

Medical supplies seized from alleged price gouger to be distributed to hospitals

first_imgKameleon007/iStock(NEW YORK) — Hundreds of thousands of masks and other pieces of medical equipment seized from a Brooklyn man will be distributed to medical workers on the front lines treating novel coronavirus patients in New York and New Jersey, the Justice Department and Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday.According to the DOJ, the equipment includes roughly 192,000 N95 respirator masks, nearly 600,000 medical gloves, 130,000 surgical masks, procedure masks, N100 masks, surgical gowns, disinfectant towels, particulate filters, bottles of hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray.Prosecutors say 43-year-old Baruch Feldheim hoarded the supplies in order to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis and was selling them to doctors and nurses at prices as much as 700% above market value.When FBI agents confronted Feldheim on Sunday about the sales, he allegedly coughed in their direction and told them he had coronavirus.Feldheim was charged with assault of a federal officer, as well as lying to investigators for allegedly deceiving them when they asked him about the equipment. Feldheim has not yet entered a plea to the charges and an attorney assigned to his defense did not immediately respond to a request for comment to ABC News on Thursday.According to HHS, Feldheim will be paid at market value for the equipment being distributed to the New Jersey Department of Health, the New York State Department of Health and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.The quick distribution of the materials, which typically would be processed and held as evidence for longer period, was made possible after HHS invoked emergency authorities under the Defense Production Act.“If you are amassing critical medical equipment for the purpose of selling it at exorbitant prices, you can expect a knock at your door,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement on the case.The DOJ is encouraging Americans who learn of hoarding or price gouging of medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic to report it to the National Center for Disaster Fraud by dialing 1-866-720-5721 or email [email protected] Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Probe of Jacob Blake police shooting in final stages, says Wisconsin AG

first_imgvmargineanu/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(KENOSHA, Wis.) — Investigators in Wisconsin said Monday they are in the final stages of their probe of last month’s shooting of Jacob Blake by a Kenosha police officer, and that their report will be reviewed by an experienced third party.Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul and Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley announced that retired Madison Police Chief Noble Wray will analyze their report of the Aug. 23 incident and provide further input before any charges are made.“Noble Wray is a longtime Wisconsin resident and a widely respected retired Madison police chief who has extensive experience in law enforcement, including experience at the national level as a police reform specialist for the U.S. Department of Justice,” Kaul said in a statement about Wray, who is Black.Wray noted at a news conference that he was part of the investigation into the 2014 police shooting of Tamir Rice in Cleveland. He told reporters that he had seen the video of Blake’s shooting, calling it “graphic,” but said that he has not “pre-judged” the case.The report, from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, will not include recommendations for charges against Officer Rusten Sheskey, who is accused of shooting Blake.“Chief Wray’s analysis will assist the district attorney in his review of the facts and their relationship with standard law enforcement practices as he makes a charging decision,” the attorney general’s office said in a statement.In video taken on Aug. 23, Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was seen being shot seven times in the back by Sheskey, 31, who was one of a group of officers responding to a domestic violence call. An unidentified woman called 911 claiming her boyfriend was at her premises and not supposed to be there, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation. Footage of the incident showed the moments when Sheskey, who is white, shot Blake in the back.Investigators haven’t said if Blake was the subject of the complaint.Officers contend they tried to arrest Blake and used a Taser on him, but he walked to his car and tried to get into the driver’s seat. Ben Crump, an attorney representing Blake and his family, said the 29-year-old was helping to deescalate a domestic incident when police drew their weapons and used the Taser.Blake is paralyzed from the waist down and may never walk again, according to his family. All of the officers involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave as investigators look into the situation, but as of Monday, no charges were announced against them.News of Blake’s shooting sparked more protests throughout the country against police violence and discrimination against the Black community. Demonstrations in Wisconsin turned deadly in Kenosha after a 17-year-old Illinois resident, who was armed with an assault rifle, allegedly fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and allegedly wounded Gaige Grosskreutz on Aug. 25.Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with homicide and is awaiting trial for the shootings, which were partially filmed by bystanders.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The incident began Wednesday afternoon, when EVERTSEN received information that a crew member of the French fishing vessel BELOUVE was badly injured and unconscious after having been accidentally struck on the head by a large object. With no other ships in the vicinity, EVERTSEN was tasked by NATO’s counter-piracy task force commander (CTF-508) Rear Admiral Eugenio Diaz del Rio to approach the vessel and provide medical assistance. EVERTSEN reached BELOUVE early Thursday morning.Once on board BELOUVE, EVERTSEN’s doctor examined the injured mariner.

first_imgGrocery price inflation has fallen for the eleventh consecutive period, according to the latest figures from Kantar Worldpanel.The report for the 12 weeks to 17 August reveals inflation to stand at just 0.2% – the lowest level since October 2006 when measurement began.Despite continued challenging market conditions, Asda, Waitrose and Farm Foods have peformed ahead of the market in terms of growth. Both Asda and Waitrose have boosted market share to 17.2% and 4.9% respectively cmpared with the same period last year.Asda has achieved growth through pushing its Price Lock strategy, which maintains low prices on everyday items, while Waitrose is running competitive offers on home delivery alongside offers for myWaitrose card users.Challenging marketThe remaining of the big four are feeling the squeeze as Tesco and Morrisons shares remain under pressure, while Sainsbury’s has suffered a small drop in share from 16.5% to 16.4% as its sales growth lags behind the market at 0.3%.Meanwhile, Aldi and Lidl have maintained their record shares of 4.8% and 3.6% respectively, mainly thanks to some 53% of households in the UK shopping at the discounters over the last 12 weeks.Edward Garner, director at Kantar Worldpanel, said: “Competitive pricing among the big grocers and deflation in the price of staple items such as vegetables, milk and bread has driven inflation down yet again.”This naturally impacts on the overall growth of the grocery market, which has fallen to a 10-year record low of 0.8%.”last_img read more

Rise of an Industry

first_imgFor the future of mountain biking, George said she sees great hope in organizations like NICA and the availability of clinics to support the next generation of riders. “You’re developing this entire new crop of people that are finding camaraderie and friendship through the experience of mountain biking at a young age,” she said. “Not all of them will stick with it indefinitely, but I feel like we have this opportunity to create more people that love riding for the rest of their life. We need fresh blood in the sport. I’m excited to see where those kids take the sport.” A.T. Thru Hiker Warren Doyle (center) As for where trail running is headed in the next few years, Affuso said a lot will depend on how the pandemic unfolds in the coming months. “I think some people are more leery to engage in large group activities,” she said. “Many of the trail runs that we customarily do have been canceled. We’re still in that wait and see pattern. Hopefully this pandemic will pass us by next year and 2021 will be the big year of trail running. I think even more people will come out, especially after the popularity of the virtual races.”  Although it is a beloved trail for a reason, East Coast hiking is more than the A.T. Long-distance trails like the Mountains-to-Sea Trail and Pinhoti Trail have been built up and seen an influx of visitors. Rail trails have exploded in popularity, from the C&O Canal and Virginia Creeper Trail to local multi-use greenways accessible for the whole family. There’s been a renewed interest in trails connecting communities, from 20-mile trails between towns to the East Coast Greenway connecting Florida to Maine.   In addition to a growing number of trails, Affuso said social media has helped pave the way for more people to call themselves trail runners. “I think social media has given women and girls more opportunities to have their voices heard and their stories told,” she said. “I see it as shifting the social norms of what women, girls, and people of color are actually doing in the real world versus what may be represented in other types of media.” As mountain biking has emerged from a fringe sport, organizations across the region have worked to open up access to mountain bikers. “I think people overall, including government and landowners, have realized the value of having trails near where people live so they can get outside,” George said. “You see a lot of people now will look to purchase a house near public land that offers access. That’s a selling point now.” In tandem, we’ve seen the rise of professional trail builders who are making the trails more sustainable and better for riding. Kayaker Emily Jackson in a Jackson Kayak, a company started by her father, Eric. Photo by Nick Troutman Growth of Trails: The A.T. and Beyond Olivia Affuso competes in the Yeti 100 in Virginia. Photo by Halley Burleson The way that mountain bikers race has also evolved as bikes are built to handle different terrain. “Over time, we’ve seen styles of racing come and go,” George said. “For a period of time, 24-hour races were the thing to do. Everybody did at least one or two a year. There are not many 24-hour races left. More recently, Enduro racing has become more popular. It seems like every so many years, we get a new discipline, it becomes popular, people love it, and then it wanes. I think throughout that whole period you still have people that just go out and ride their bike in the woods. You don’t have to race to be a mountain biker.”  Part of that interest can be attributed to the 2020 Olympics, now rescheduled for 2021, as the first year climbing would be included as a sport. “That alone started an international increase in demand for climbing facilities,” Wu said. “Gym competitions specifically are going to be an even bigger part of the funding as far as the amount of money a country puts in their athletic system.”  As with other outdoor recreation activities, the internet has changed how paddlers are able to get information and get out on the water. “There are databases now just filled with all that information, particularly American Whitewater,” Jackson said. “They have the put-ins and take-outs and rapid descriptions for just about every run in the U.S. and everyone can access it. So, you don’t have to buy a guidebook per region that was written in whatever year that changes constantly.”  As more state and local leaders see the value in building trails close to home, Affuso said communities need to think of access beyond the open space available and number of trails built. “I don’t think there’s been as much attention paid to people’s perception of safety in those spaces,” she said. “Safety isn’t always about crime. Safety is, am I going to be okay if I go into this space by myself. That might mean one thing for a woman but something different for a person of color. Do I belong in this space and will people perceive that I belong in this space, or will they come after me because I represent a certain stereotype in their mind?”  With trails seeing an increase in visitors during this time, local trails will be key in keeping people engaged with the outdoors and accessible for all.   Cover Photo: Ben Wu climbs Indecent Exposure on Table Rock in Linville Gorge, N.C. Photo by Natalie Sheffield When Starr Nolan first got into fly fishing, it wasn’t unusual for her to be the only woman at her local Trout Unlimited meetings. “It was kind of what I was used to,” she said. Now there are a few more women in the room, and gear companies are slowly introducing clothing for women. “When I first started, you had to make do with men’s sizes,” Nolan said. “Now almost every company has a line of woman’s gear. It’s not nearly as extensive as the men’s gear. Strangely enough, it’s in these weird colors. As if women don’t seriously go fly fishing, the women’s gear has bright pink or blue on it and the men’s gear is all camo. There are these strange little suggestions within the fashion world.” Still, gear companies are getting there. In addition to more specialized equipment, including PFDs and helmets, the comfort of the boats has changed dramatically due to new designs. As a kid, Jackson remembers paddlers putting beer koozies on their feet because they couldn’t fit into their kayak with shoes on. “A lot of respect for the paddlers of the 90s that dealt with a lot of things that we simply don’t have to deal with anymore,” Jackson said. “Being uncomfortable was a big part of it. Some people quit kayaking just due to having back pain and trouble with their feet or their legs. And that isn’t a factor anymore.”  Nolan sees the future of fly fishing as a much more diverse and welcoming activity. “Fly fishing has historically been a white, male sport,” she said. “I would like the fly fishing world to be open to diversity, whatever that might have to look like. As with being the single female in the room full of men, it’s been one person of color or no people of color for an equally long time. I would really like for the fly fishing world to take a look at that. How can we make this wonderful opportunity and sport available, open, and welcoming to everybody?”  A Specialized Sport  Coming from a paddling family, whitewater kayaker Emily Jackson got her start at a young age. The two-time World Freestyle Champion and member of the U.S. Freestyle Team said paddlers today really associate with what they are doing more than ever before. “Even just saying ‘I’m a whitewater kayaker,’ when you ask most people, it’s kind of blanketing a few different things,” Jackson said. “What do you like to do in your kayak, oh freestyle kayak, oh I’m a creeker, oh I’m a river runner. With that, the people marketing and building the gear have recognized that people really like to associate themselves with a certain niche of paddlers.” As the owner of Brookside Guides and executive director of Casting Carolinas, Nolan specializes in teaching new anglers the ways of the water. “To really be adequate at fly fishing means you’re a learner,” she said. “You want to learn a little bit more about the stream insects, how you pick a different fly, the water, the currents, and how to think like a trout. For people who are really into that learning process and knowing that every single time that you step in that water, it’s going to be different.”  Blue Ridge Athletes and Experts Discuss the Evolution of Outdoor Recreation  Cast Away With the growth in local trails that you no longer need to drive hours to reach came an increased interest in trail running. Ultrarunner and running coach Olivia Affuso experienced that infrastructure development in her local trail running community as Birmingham, Ala., built up trails close to the city. “We’ve seen a lot of growth in the trail running community in the past 10 years,” she said. “Just so many more people coming into it and the variety of races. There are lots of race series that start with a three-mile run. That opens up more opportunities for people who are maybe a little less crazy than the ultra-endurance athletes.”  Looking to the future, Jackson said she wants to see the paddling community focus more on the mental and physical benefits that come from being on the water rather than just the extreme side of the sport. Sue George goes for a ride in the mountains. Photo by Tomi McMillar. Building Better Bikes  In the last five years alone, Ben Wu, a guide for Fox Mountain Guides, said climbing has gone almost mainstream. “I’ve noticed a tremendous increase in the crowds at the crag and in the number of gyms nationwide, worldwide,” he said. “People are flooding the climbing industry.” Sue George has been involved with just about every aspect of mountain biking since the early 80s. She competed nationally and internationally as a member of the U.S. National Cycling Team, wrote articles as an editor at CyclingNews.com, and now serves as vice president at BikeFlights.com. “If you ride a bike from 25 years ago and try to take it out on the trail now, you’re like, how did I do this?” George said. “It’s such a different experience. The suspension has changed, the shocks have changed, the geometry has changed, wheel size has changed. You can confidently go down something and know your brakes are going to work well and stop you. It’s really changed what you can ride and what you can enjoy riding over time. Things that you would have previously had to walk or hike a bike become rideable and become fun challenges.” Since Doyle’s first thru-hike, lightweight has been the name of the game as gear companies compete to produce the lightest gear for outdoor enthusiasts to help keep their pack weight down. But despite the push to have the latest and greatest, Doyle, founder of the Appalachian Trail Institute, says your gear won’t ultimately get you to the end of the 2,190-mile trail. “Your mental fortitude is the thing that’s going to get you to Katahdin, not your things,” he said. “The trail has not changed. It may be a hundred miles longer than it used to be, but it hasn’t changed. What you need to go from Georgia to Maine, if that’s what you do and that’s what you want, it becomes a task. And there are universal truths to accomplishing that task. And it’s not tied into equipment.”  Warren Doyle thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail for the first time in 1969. Since then, he has hiked the entirety of the famous trail 18 times while watching the rise of the outdoor adventure industry. “There used to not be much commerciality out there,” Doyle said. “It wasn’t much of an industry, and there weren’t that many jobs in the outdoors. There weren’t any hostels or shuttles. It was all about the mountain you slept on top of.”  While it might be easier to get out on the water with all of the information online, Jackson said the damming of rivers has changed many wild whitewater runs. “Some of my favorite runs are nonexistent now,” she said. “Whole entire sections of rivers are just disappearing. I’ve noticed that more so now in the last few years than before. It could have been happening before just as much and I wasn’t aware. I would say that that has been the biggest eye opener for me as far as access to waterways. They’re all underwater.” Organizations like the Southeastern Climbers Coalition, Red River Gorge Climbers’ Coalition, and Carolina Climber’s Coalition are working to expand access to rock climbing and bouldering spots in the region by purchasing land or facilitating climbing agreements with other land managers to keep crags open as more climbers are wanting to get outside. Wu said the transition from gym to crag does call for some training to minimize risk. “We’ve already seen more accidents because of newcomers trying to get outside too early without the proper guidance,” he said. See You at the Crag  The future of rock climbing and bouldering will depend on climbers maintaining access to climbing areas. Wu said he is watching areas where climbers might be shut out, especially the U.S. Forest Service’s plan for Pisgah and Nantahala national forests. In the years since she started her business, Nolan said the guiding side of the industry has taken off. “For a good number of years, there were maybe a handful of us that were in the mix,” she said. “More people got interested in fly fishing, more people decided to try to make a living guiding, and that part really blossomed. The competition is now pretty steep out there.” “We don’t promote the bunny slope,” she said. “So, when people think about whitewater kayaking, they’re often thinking about what they saw on the Today Show of someone running a 200-foot waterfall, versus just people getting outside and having a really good time on the water.”  “I’m hoping that this boom in the climbing industry is also going to transfer to a more widespread acceptance of guiding culture. In the U.S., there’s this mentality that as an individual you can figure all of this stuff out on your own. That mentality leads to a lot of accidents.” From coastal marshes to serene mountain lakes, paddling the Blue Ridge doesn’t have to be all about Class V whitewater.   Today, outdoor recreation is a multi-billion-dollar industry, accounting for 2.2 percent of the U.S. GDP, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Races have come and gone. New fastest known time records have been set. Important wilderness areas have been protected while others have been lost to development. Virginia and North Carolina created offices of outdoor recreation. And, no matter where you look in the outdoor industry, it is undeniable the impact technology and social media have had on recreation. We caught up with athletes and adventurers to find out how outdoor recreation has evolved over the last 25 years.  “Ecosports are here to stay,” then editor John Blackburn declared in the inaugural issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors. When the magazine first went to press 25 years ago, a year before I was born, the publication was focused on outdoor recreation spots around Charlottesville, Va. Since then, we’ve seen Blackburn’s statement ring true as the magazine expanded to cover the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. last_img read more

Go make a difference

first_imgThis past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the confirmation of my grandson Christopher. Milestones in a young person’s life are very important and ones which involve a person’s faith are even more so.The ceremony was beautiful. The presiding Bishop, the most reverend Francis Kane, eloquently spoke to the 127 conferments as a group and individually as he administered the sacrament to each of them.The ceremony was filled with prayer and song and it was the words of one those songs that I thought were most inspiring and held true for not only the young people in attendance, but for everyone.The title of the song is Go Make a Difference. It is uplifting, energizing and true.“Go make a difference. We can make a difference. Go make a difference in the world”.“We are the light of the world, not to be hidden but to be seen. Go make a difference in the world. We are the spirit of hope, we are the voice of peace. Go make a difference in the world”.Having been involved with credit unions in some way my entire professional life; I find that I relate events life events to the industry and with the people in it. I do so because I have always felt that the people who work in credit unions every day are some of the most dedicated in the financial services industry. They are people who continually make a difference in others lives.Whenever a member enters their credit union they do so with the belief that they will be given outstanding service and shown individual attention to whatever their needs are. It is important that the staff at that credit union that must realize that how they treat their members, the service that they give them, the advice that they provide and the experience of the visit can forever make a difference in that member’s life.The message I believe that was conveyed in the words of that song, to my grandson, the other young adults who were there with him, everyone else in attendance along with everyone who reads them, is one of hope and confidence. A message to inspire and make one realize that everyone, people in all walks of life, can make a difference. The light that you bring to your life and to others must shine and not be hidden. Everyone has the ability, by their actions and deeds, to have a lasting impact on everyone who surrounds or comes in contact with them.Never doubt your abilities or potential to make a difference.You can make a difference.Go make a difference. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michael Fryzel Michael Fryzel is the former Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration and is now a financial services consultant and government affairs attorney in Chicago.

The pros and cons of spring

first_img 34SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com. John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Spring means baseball and grilling out. Those two reasons alone are pretty much all I need to justify my belief that spring is the best. If you’re thinking that I once said “fall is the best,” I probably did, but we’re not talking about fall so let’s move on. All seasons have their ups and downs, so let’s focus on the pros and cons of spring…PRO: We get to finally be social again. I met most of my neighbors when I moved into my new house last spring, but then cold weather eventually hit and now I can’t remember any of their names. I need to start writing this stuff down. I did binge watch quite a few tv shows during that time though (and my Tigers won the natty!), but that’s more of pro for winter. Anyway, the point is fresh air and conversations are good for the soul, so soak it up while you can. If you live anywhere near the same latitude as I do, summer will probably come early and it’ll then be too hot to do anything outside.CON: Pollen is the worst. If pollen was a person, they’d be shunned. I cut my grass for the first time two weeks ago and then was basically a zombie for the next two days. Side note: If you’re one of those people who believes in switching up your allergy medication so that your body doesn’t get used to a certain brand, don’t switch in April-May. Huge mistake. You’ll regret it more than that time you bought sushi at a 7-Eleven.PRO: It’s truly the best time to get in shape. A lot of people enjoy making their New Year’s Resolutions every year, but if your resolution is running, it’s destined to fail unless you have a treadmill or a gym membership. If you’d prefer to strap on your Nikes and run around your neighborhood, you’re more likely to succeed if you want until the weather is nice. Try 7pm on a spring evening. It’s good stuff.CON: THERE ARE NO OTHER CONS. Spring is awesome! Did I mention baseball and grilling out? Okay yard work isn’t my favorite, but it’s way worse in the summer so we won’t harp on that right now. Enjoy the rest of your spring!last_img read more

Service-profit chain guides member service

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Stuart R. Levine Founded in 1996, Stuart Levine & Associates LLC is an international strategic planning and leadership development company with focus on adding member value by strengthening corporate culture.SL&A … Web: www.Stuartlevine.com Details HBR’s classic article, “Putting the Service-Profit Chain to Work”, first published in 1994, had a profound impact on my thinking about the fundamental drivers of business success. Employee satisfaction and empowerment directly impact the member experience and, of course, the member’s actions determine financial success. The article is as fresh and relevant today and applicable to your credit union’s business as when it was written 25 years ago. In the intervening years, volumes of data have been collected and analyzed that support the themes of the article. The service-profit-chain describes the interconnected relationships that create financial results. Simply stated: 1. Customer loyalty drives profitability and growth. 2. Customer satisfaction drives customer loyalty. 3. Value drives customer satisfaction. 4. Employee productivity drives value. 5. Employee loyalty drives productivity. 6. Employee satisfaction drives loyalty. And, 7. Internal quality drives employee satisfaction.Senior management puts the chain to work when it concentrates on the quality of the work environment, i.e., its organization’s culture as much as on financial measures. Management focuses on the employees and commits to invest in their people. Listening, learning and collecting data are fundamental as management seeks to understand how employees feel about their work, their colleagues, and the organization. Management actively uses what they learn to take action that drives employee satisfaction and engagement. Management is aware of the importance of each employee, each member, and the interactions between them.Employees are most engaged when they operate in an atmosphere of respect and sense that they have opportunities to learn, improve, grow, and add depth to their work. They are engaged when they have management’s attention and the company provides the technological and knowledge-based tools that they need to succeed. They are engaged when they feel empowered to make things right for members, colleagues and themselves. These aspects of a healthy culture drive employee loyalty, which in turn triggers the other links in the chain – employee productivity, leading to creating value for the customer, resulting in satisfied members, whose loyalty builds. For your credit union member, loyalty means member retention, repeat business, and their referrals.Millennials now represent about half of the labor force, and they are particularly attuned to organizational values, the organizational climate, and opportunities for learning and growth. Moreover, they are more likely to vote with their feet when they feel they are not in an environment where their aims, objectives and ambitions are addressed in their conversations with management. Gallup reports that they are more than three times as likely than non-millennials to change jobs. For this group in particular, loyalty and retention arise from their empowerment and autonomy in driving value for the member. Your credit union has the power to sustain a culture that inspires employee engagement and loyalty and harnesses their desire to serve your credit union’s members. High quality member service matters in inspiring member loyalty, and profit and growth are driven by it. Your credit union’s success increases when your most loyal members become “apostles”, committing their business to your credit union and spreading the word of excellent service.last_img read more

UK Interserve scheme agrees £300m buy-in with Aviva

first_imgInterserve, a FTSE 250 company, previously used a portfolio of private finance initiatives (PFIs) as contingent assets to address a deficit within the defined benefit scheme, part of which were sold to the Pensions Infrastructure Platform in April.The buy-in was completed after a competitive tender process, with consultancy LCP and Sacker & Partners acting as advisor to the trustee.Trapnell added: “This transaction represents a significant risk reduction step for the Interserve Pension Scheme, reducing funding volatility and providing additional protection for all our members’ benefits.”Emma Watkins, partner at LCP added that the use of a “tried and tested” buy-in procedure allowed terms and pricing to be negotiated within four months of the trustee formally approaching insurers.Aviva’s director of bulk purchase annuities Nick Johnson said the firm was increasingly seeing mid-size bulk annuity agreements “being dealt with in a streamlined way, similar to smaller deals”.In April, in the wake of a UK government decision to scrap forced annuitisation of individual defined contribution pension pots, IPE reported that Aviva would be more aggressively pursuing bulk annuity deals.The deal follows the announcement of two larger transactions yesterday, with the Western United Group Pension Scheme agreeing a £280m de-risking deal with Rothesay Life and the PGL Pension Scheme agreeing a £900m longevity swap.The UK regulator earlier this week also settled a long-running dispute with the estate of Lehman Brothers, agreeing to a £184m settlement that would allow the underfunded scheme to pursue a buyout. The Interserve Pension Scheme has completed a £300m (€375m) buy-in of its pensioner liabilities, with Aviva insuring the risk.The deal will cover around 35% of the fund’s liabilities, according to a joint statement from the sponsor and insurance company, with chairman of the trustee David Trapnell praising the “significant” reduction in risk achieved.At £300m and the insurer’s largest bulk contract since 2008, the deal highlights Aviva’s turnaround within the bulk annuity space and exceeds its desired limit of individual arrangements.Despite previously being a large market player, it set a £50m cap on individual deals, before raising this to £200m in the wake of this year’s Budget.last_img read more

Eagles could be set to land Pardew

first_imgAlan Pardew could be on the verge of bringing his tumultuous four-year-old reign on Tyneside to an end and agreeing terms to take over as the new manager of Crystal Palace. Press Association Pardew made 128 appearances for Palace between 1988 and 1991 and scored the winning goal in his side’s famous FA Cup final win over Liverpool in 1990. Despite a mounting campaign for his dismissal from a large section of Newcastle supporters, Pardew retained the faith of Magpies owner Mike Ashley and guided them to ninth place in the Premier League table. But with relations with the fans still strained and little prospect of major investment in the January transfer window, it is easy to see why Pardew may have been tempted by the vacancy at Selhurst Park. And the 53-year-old stoked the speculation over his future by failing to attend the post-match press conference following his side’s 3-2 win over Everton on Sunday. Pardew is scheduled to host his regular pre-match press conference ahead of the visit of Burnley at Newcastle’s training ground on Tuesday afternoon – at around the same time Palace preview their next match against Aston Villa. However, Palace chairman Steve Parish may act swiftly following the departure of Neil Warnock, with Keith Millen taking charge in a caretaker capacity for the second time. Millen made clear his desire to be considered for the position after Sunday’s goalless draw at QPR when he said: “I’m ready for it. “I think the players respect me. I’ve done it enough times, I’ve managed before and I enjoy working for the club. Several leading bookmakers suspended betting on the next Premier League manager to leave his post on Monday after reports that Palace have agreed compensation terms with Newcastle. Neither club has been willing to confirm suggestions that the Eagles will pay £2million to land Pardew, who still has five years left on his St James’ Park contract. “The chairman may feel he needs more experience or wants to see what names are available because it’s a vital time now.” Reports in Australia claimed Palace had also approached former Palace defender Tony Popovic – currently in charge of Western Sydney Wanderers – about the job, while Tim Sherwood, Chris Hughton and former boss Tony Pulis have also been mentioned in connection with the vacancy. The draw at QPR saw Palace drop into the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Villa on New Year’s Day. Defender Joel Ward has insisted the players cannot afford to let the managerial issue become a distraction from their fight for survival. “We’ve been in this situation before on various different occasions and we’ve just got to get on with the job at hand, focus on the games and not let it affect us,” Ward said. “The main focus is to pick up points and to stay in the Premier League. That is all we are going to focus on. “I’m not going to comment on anything else about the decision that has been made. “The expectations after last season are high. We set our bar high and we want to get back to that.” Mile Jedinak has been one of his side’s star performers so far this term but the Eagles captain will miss the Villa match as he departs to play for Australia in the Asia Cup. Jedinak believes his team-mates will give their all while Millen is in charge and admits it would be best for all concerned if a new manager is appointed as soon as possible. “Of course we would like to see someone appointed quickly but we’ve been in this position a few times before and we know that decisions can’t always be made straight away,” Jedinak said. “Whatever that decision is you need to respect it and until then you keep working hard for each other, for Keith, for everyone else involved so that when someone else does come in it’s business as usual and we can keep that ball rolling.” last_img read more

Season will start and end with Cody Kessler

first_imgQuarterback. The only position that can bring about devout praise and unheralded hate in a single game. Every team, no matter the conference, surrounding players or level (pro or amateur), starts and ends with the quarterback. If you don’t believe me, just look at Alabama and LSU last year. Two stacked teams at every position besides quarterback.This season will be no different for the Trojans. The team will rise and fall depending on the performance of senior quarterback Cody Kessler.I know what you’re all thinking. Kessler was fantastic last season, putting up numbers that not even Heisman winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart could reach.And yes, on paper Kessler looked amazing, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes en route to 3,826 yards, 39 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Kessler led the Power 5 conferences in completion rate and trailed only Heisman winner Marcus Mariota in touchdowns.To say the least, Kessler had a pretty phenomenal year. The problem? His team went 9-4, lost two games in the final minutes and got steamrolled by UCLA for a third consecutive year.If you dive into Kessler’s numbers from last year, you’ll notice a disturbing trend. Against teams ranked outside the Top 25, Kessler put up video game-like numbers. Against top ranked teams, though, not so much.For example, in games against Fresno State, Boston College, Oregon State, Colorado, Washington State, Cal and Notre Dame — all non-ranked teams at the time — Kessler threw for 2,434 yards, 32 touchdowns and just one interception.  Pretty amazing to say the least.Now in games against Stanford, Arizona, Arizona State, Utah and UCLA — much better competition — Kessler managed just 1,071 yards (214 yards per game), four touchdowns and three interceptions. USC went 2-3 in these games, but it could have been 0-5 if Stanford had scored one of their 10 possessions inside USC’s 10-yard line and Arizona hadn’t missed a last-minute field goal.Many will come to Kessler’s defense and claim the scholarship reductions severely hurt USC in the fourth quarter of games. While this may be true, against both Arizona State and Utah, the Trojans had the ball with a chance to seal the game with a first down. In both situations the Trojans failed to convert and lost in the final seconds.Though Kessler had a monster year statistically, the jury is still out on whether or not he can follow in the footsteps of those before him and become the next great Trojan quarterback.The losses of Nelson Agholor and Buck Allen to the NFL will hurt Kessler, but the pieces still surrounding him should pick up the slack. Sophomore wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and redshirt sophomore Steven Mitchell are both another year older and junior wide out Darreus Rogers have made strides throughout camp. The threat of sophomore cornerback Adoree’ Jackson should also open things up for Kessler down the field.Kessler has the benefit of sitting behind one of the most experienced offensive lines the Trojans have had in years. The Trojans return most of their offensive line, including preseason All-American Max Tuerk.After somehow flying under the radar all of last season, Kessler now has the spotlight shining directly on him. ESPN rankedKessler third in their pre-season Heisman watch and named the senior quarterback to the preseason All-Pac-12 team.If Kessler manages to lead the Trojans through the first half of the season undefeated, that spotlight will only grow. It will be interesting to see how the humble star out of Bakersfield responds once the lights are all on him.It may be unfair to put all the pressure on Kessler, but when you play quarterback for the University of Southern California that’s the reality. Injuries, coaching and luck will all play a major factor this season, but it will all come back to Kessler.If the Trojans go undefeated, Kessler is a hero. If they go 9-4 again, Kessler is just another quarterback, even if he puts up ridiculous numbers once again.Honestly, I believe Kessler has the ability to lead the Trojans to a Pac-12 title and an appearance in the College Football Playoff. All of the pieces are there for this to be a successful season and Kessler has shown tremendous growth since he took over the starting job midway through the 2013 season.The sanctions are over. Sarkisian is in year two. The Trojans have depth on both sides of the ball for the first time in years. Jackson is a star in the making.All that’s left is for Kessler to lead us back to the promised land.Nick Barbarino is a senior majoring in business administration.

Baseball finishes season last in Pac-12

first_imgUSC baseball fought hard this weekend in the team’s final three games of the season, but in the end the Trojans came home with its eighth straight Pac-12 series defeat, finishing the year with a 21-34 record after dropping two of three against Washington. Entering this weekend’s games, the Trojans had not won a conference series since late March. Playing with nothing to lose appeared to suit them, however, as they looked loose and ready to battle in the first game in Seattle on Thursday. Opening the game with a lead-off home run from sophomore Lars Nootbaar, USC scored nine runs in the first two innings. Huskies starting pitcher Chris Micheles was yanked into the dugout before he could even record his first out. But despite the early offensive outburst, the Trojans were unable to sustain that offensive level, ultimately plating just one more run for the remainder of the game. Meanwhile, Washington also put on a hitting clinic early on, scoring six runs in the second inning. In the end, the Huskies bested USC 11-10 in a wild shootout. The Trojans continued their groove at the plate on Friday, totaling 15 hits and a season-high four home runs. Nootbaar turned in what was likely his best game of the season, as he went 4 for 5 with 3 RBI and a home run. He finished just a double shy of hitting for the cycle. Given the way Thursday’s and many other games this season have ended, USC’s lead didn’t exactly feel safe heading into the late innings. The Trojans were hopeful that their bullpen could preserve a much-needed victory, however, and sophomore pitchers CJ Stubbs and Solomon Bates provided just enough support from the mound to allow USC to tie the series with a 9-6 win. With each team trading blows and plenty of hits over the course of the series, the Trojans and Huskies prepared for a rubber game on Saturday that would double as the season finale for both teams. Unlike in the previous two contests, this time the Trojans struggled at the plate starting the game. They managed one run in the third inning off an RBI single from sophomore Brandon Perez, but the team then fell into a large deficit when Washington scored five runs across the fourth and fifth innings. Down 6-1 in the eighth inning, USC’s veterans tried to rally for one last win to cap the season. Senior Cris Perez ended the team’s scoring drought with an RBI single, and senior Corey Dempster crushed a double to center field that sent redshirt junior Frankie Rios home from second. Dempster then scored off of a throwing error. Suddenly, the Trojans were only down 6-4 with one more inning to play. However, USC was not able to continue its late-game rally. Washington plated an important insurance run off of a sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the eighth inning, extending its lead to three runs. In the top of the ninth, freshman Brady Shockey led off the inning with a single, but any hope for another high-scoring frame ended when Nootbaar grounded into a double play. After the loss to Washington, the Trojans finish the season last place in the Pac-12 (8-22 in conference play), a disappointing result for fifth-year head coach Dan Hubbs.last_img read more

Barrett Brothers moved aside at Hurricanes

first_imgPhoto Jordie Barrett All Black first five Beauden Barrett has been moved to fullback so Black can start at first five against the South African side the Cheetahs in Wellington on Saturday.There are four changes to the team that started in the loss to the Crusaders with lock Sam Lousi set to make his starting debut.Wes Goosen replaces Cory Jane on the right wing, and Ben May returns at loose head prop for Chris Eves.Barrett’s move back to fullback gives younger brother Jordie a break having appeared in every match this season and started the past seven.Lousi will make his fourth appearance of the campaign, but just his first start since joining the club from the New South Wales Waratahs this year.He will partner fellow Tongan Vaea Fifita in the second row with Mark Abbott taking a break on the bench after starting the past eight matches.With a tough tour to South Africa and Perth coming up, Boyd said it was important to manage some of his player’s workloads.”We have some guys who have shouldered a particularly big load through the first ten matches, and other guys who, through injury have not had a lot of time.”Boyd said the changes were not an indication of taking the Cheetahs lightly.”The Cheetahs are a particularly dangerous team that can score tries from anywhere and also have a big forward pack up front. We know they will bring a lot to the match.”The Cheetahs have won just two of their eleven matches this season with their wins coming against the Bulls and Sunwolves.last_img read more

Arsenal fight back to salvage point against Spurs

first_imgHowever, Arsenal were always a threat going forward and, after Alexandre Lacazette reduced the arrears in first-half stoppage time, were well worthy of a point after the break.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the equaliser 19 minutes from time and Arsenal even had the ball in the net again through Sokratis Papastathopoulos, only to see their celebrations cut short by the offside flag.A share of the spoils sees Arsenal maintain a two-point lead over their local rivals with seven points from the opening four games to Tottenham’s five.Tottenham’s long wait for an away win in the Premier League dating back to January also continues, but they did show some resolve after a desperately disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle last weekend with manager Mauricio Pochettino complaining afterwards of having an unsettled squad.Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac is tackled by Mousa Sissoko of Tottenham Hotspur during their North London Derby on September 1, 2019The Argentine had sidelined Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen in the opening month of the season but both returned and the Danish midfielder had a huge impact an an open and frantic encounter.Arsenal boss Unai Emery named the front three of club record signing Nicolas Pepe, Aubameyang and Lacazette together in his starting line-up for the first time, but the Gunners lacked any balance to their attacking intent as Tottenham counter-attacked with ease early on.The visitors went in front with their first serious attack 10 minutes in as Son Heung-min latched onto Kane’s knockdown and freed Erik Lamela through on goal.Bernd Leno got a weak hand to Lamela’s effort and palmed the ball into the grateful path of the onrushing Eriksen to tap home.Leno redeemed himself with a stunning save to prevent Son making it 2-0 and also turned a dipping Eriksen free-kick to safety.However, Leno was helpless to stop Kane continuing his excellent record in the north London derby from the penalty spot after a ludicrous challenge by Granit Xhaka to clearly chop down Son inside the area.To their credit, Arsenal raised themselves off the canvas to reduce the deficit before the break.Hugo Lloris made a fine save low to his right to deny Pepe his first Arsenal goal, but moments later Lacazette burst through before blasting past his French international teammate from a narrow angle to give the Gunners hope.A wild second period raged from end-to-end as Son saw a shot deflected inches wide and Kane struck the inside of the post at one end, while Lloris made a brilliant save to deny Matteo Guendouzi and Sead Kolasinac somehow skewed wide from point-blank range at the other.Arsenal, though, were the side in the ascendancy and got their reward with an equaliser.Lacazette had been sacrificed for Dani Ceballos to bolster the midfield and that allowed Aubameyang to move into his favoured role through the middle.Guendouzi was the creator as his cross was expertly turned home by Aubameyang for his third goal of the season.Arsenal did not settle for a point as Sokratis thought he had bundled home the winner from Kolasinac’s cross only for the latter to be ruled offside.However, it was Spurs who passed up a host of promising positions to snatch the winner in stoppage time with Kane seeing appeals for another penalty waived away.0Shares0000(Visited 27 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang celebrates after scoring the equalizer during their North London Derby against Tottenham Hotspur on September 1, 2019LONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 1 – Arsenal fought back from two goals down to salvage a 2-2 draw against Tottenham in a pulsating north London derby on Sunday which both sides will feel they should have won.Spurs preyed on the Gunners’ vacant midfield early on as Christian Eriksen tapped home at the end of a flowing counter-attack before Harry Kane’s penalty doubled the Champions League finalists’ lead.last_img read more

Battle of the high-def DVDs

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Analysts say the early adopters, those who rush out and buy whatever new technology becomes available, will jump right in and pay $1,800 for a Blu-ray player from Pioneer or $499 for the Toshiba HD DVD player. But a prolonged struggle between the two incompatible formats may mean consumers have a long wait for a clear winner to emerge, potentially delaying widespread adoption of high-def DVDs for years. “There’s no question that a format war is not a good idea,” Howard Stringer, chairman and chief executive officer of Sony Corp., said this week. Sony is a developer and backer of the Blu-ray format. The Blu-ray team is confident of getting content from most of the top Hollywood studios. It also believes that the new PlayStation 3, which will come equipped with a Blu-ray drive when it debuts later this year, will tip the odds in their favor. “With the installed base of PlayStation, we do think we have an enormous advantage,” Stringer said. Blu-ray discs will have the larger capacity, at 25 gigabytes or more. The HD DVD will have the virtue of being more similar to regular DVDs, which simplifies production, according to its backers. The HD DVD crowd has backing from computer giants Intel and Microsoft and will have the slight advantage of coming to market first. Players from Toshiba can already be pre-ordered from Amazon.com and will hit store shelves in March. Blu-ray players will be available one or two months later. “HD DVD is really ‘Now playing,”‘ said Yoshiihide Fujii, president and CEO of Toshiba’s Digital Media Network company. A bigger risk for companies backing the rival DVD systems is that consumers opt to get their video from places like Yahoo and Google, or one of the several companies offering downloadable movies over the Internet. Computer hard drives, particularly on multimedia PCs geared toward the living room, are getting bigger every day, and younger people especially are accustomed and more than happy to store their video there. Companies such as Starz Entertainment Group, which recently launched its Vongo service, are also allowing consumers to transfer movies and TV shows to portable devices. DirecTV and Dish Network, two satellite TV services, offer portable viewers that can store hours of programs. “The longer the format war goes on, the more opportunity smart players in the cable and IPTV and online spaces have to build market share,” said Laura Behrens, an analyst at Gartner Industry Advisory Services. (IPTV is an up-and-coming technology that many telecommunications companies are employing as they charge into the television service business.) Studio executives argue that people want to own their content and that DVDs offer the same portability options as downloadable programs or video on demand services. “Portability is a killer application with music and to a degree with movies, but the majority of movie and TV viewing is not on a small 2-inch screen,” said Mike Dunn, president of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Fox is releasing its movies this year in the Blu-ray format. While studios clearly wanted to avoid a format war and struggled last year to reach a compromise between the two camps, they say that the formats can exist side by side. “There will be 25 million homes that have high definition TVs by the end of next year. Those people are going to be looking for content,” said Stephen Nickerson, senior vice president at Warner Home Video. Warner Bros., an early backer of HD DVD, has said it will release movies in both formats. Nickerson said that while many compare the DVD format wars to the battle a quarter century ago between the Betamax and VHS formats, another analogy might be more useful. “The (video) games industry since the early ’90s has had two or three incompatible formats and it hasn’t slowed the adoption of game platforms,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LAS VEGAS – It was supposed to be the grand unveiling of a new generation in home entertainment when Kevin Collins of Microsoft Corp. popped an HD DVD disc into a Toshiba production model and hit “play.” Nothing happened. The failed product demo at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show was hardly an auspicious start for the HD DVD camp in what’s promising to be a nasty, drawn-out technology format war reminiscent of the Betamax/VHS video tape battle. Backers of the two rival high definition DVD formats are betting that the millions of people shelling out thousands of dollars for new high-def TVs and home theater sound systems will spend a few hundred more for new DVD players and discs that offer sharp pictures and interactive features. last_img read more

Mourinho’s return to Chelsea turns ugly as Man United concede late equaliser

first_img Barkley slammed the ball home in the sixth minute of stoppage time Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Mourinho, who had to be held back by Stamford Bridge security, was seconds from a huge victory after Anthony Martial’s second-half double cancelled out Antonio Rudiger’s first-half header.But Barkley slammed the ball home at the death to salvage Maurizio Sarri’s unbeaten record and deny Man United a second-consecutive comeback win.Mourinho shook hands with Blues boss Maurizio Sarri at the final whistle but was jeered by the home supporters and responded by holding up three fingers to them at full-time, representing the trio of league titles he won as manager of the club.Rudiger capitalised on slack marking from Paul Pogba to head Sarri’s side ahead but their unbeaten start to the season was almost ended by a man who had guided them to three league titles.Mourinho had singled out Chelsea’s Eden Hazard for praise on the eve of the contest and, unsurprisingly, the forward was also given special attention by the visitors.Ashley Young, who impressed, clattered the Belgian early on with Nemanja Matic following suit seconds later before earning a yellow card for bundling his former team-mate to the ground once more. Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade 3 Jose Mourinho’s return to Chelsea turned ugly as Ross Barkley salvaged a dramatic last-gasp draw against Manchester United.The former Chelsea boss reacted angrily as Blues assistant Marco Ianni celebrated Barkley’s late leveller in front of his dugout. Romelu Lukaku’s first chance at goal saw the former Chelsea striker head well wide from seven yards out after he was picked out well by Luke Shaw’s cross.There was no such profligacy at the other end as Rudiger lost Pogba at a corner to power a header past David De Gea and give Chelsea a 20th-minute lead.Young was the next United man to be cautioned for fouling Hazard, going through the back of the league’s top goalscorer on the halfway line.Hazard, perhaps sick of the rough stuff, picked up a booking of his own for a fouling Marcus Rashford as the England forward looked to break into the Chelsea box.Alvaro Morata, preferred in attack to Olivier Giroud, had a marvellous chance to double Chelsea’s lead soon after the break but his low shot was too weak to beat De Gea.United drew level nine minutes after the interval, Juan Mata finally forcing Kepa Arrizabalaga into action with a fine low save. RANKED REVEALED 3 LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS MONEY The visitors kept the ball alive and Martial controlled and turned home Young’s shot as Marcos Alonso lay prone in the middle of the box.The goal seemed to give United belief they could go on and win the game while simultaneously rattling Chelsea’s confidence -although David Luiz missed a great chance to head Chelsea back in front.N’Golo Kante drew a great stop out of De Gea with an effort from the edge of the area as Chelsea looked to regain the lead.Instead they fell behind, Mata doing well to break down the right and feed Rashford, whose pass was slightly miscontrolled by Martial before he bent superbly home past Kepa.Mourinho’s touchline demeanour changed as he hugged Martial when the France forward was replaced in the closing stages by Andreas Pereira.Chelsea pushed for a leveller and it came as Luiz’s header off the post was turned towards goal by Rudiger.

Yes, This Week’s DDoS Attack Was Huge, And Part Of An Ominous Trend

first_imgDepending on who you believe, the week long Spamhaus-Cyberbunker cyberattack we covered Wednesday was either a threat to the Internet itself or hyped up by an overzealous security vendor. Either way, it was still serious business.While much of the Internet disruption may have in fact been localized to Europe, and also potentially caused by tampering with underwater telecom cables in the Mediterranean, big DDoS attacks — that is, distributed denial-of-service assaults that aim to knock target computers off the Internet — are real, and have been on the rise since 2010.  A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#ddos#DNS#hacks#privacy#security adam popescu Related Posts Dan Holden, the director of ASERT, Arbor Networks‘ security engineering and response team, has been monitoring DDoS attacks for more than 12 years. In 2012 his company released a Worldwide Infrastructure Report that reports attack sizes have been peaking at around 100Gbps (check out this detailed look at the report here). This week’s attack was more than 300Gbps — way above the norm, in other words. That’s because the attackers actually co-opted part of the Internet’s basic infrastructure — the Domain Name System, or DNS — in such a way as to greatly amplify the firehose stream of data they were directing at target computers.Here’s how they work, according to Carlos Morales, Arbor Networks’ vice president of global sales engineering and operations:Attackers send DNS queries to a [DNS server] on the Internet but use the victim address as the source of the query. When the response goes back, a response that is usually multiple times the size of the initial query, the response goes to the victim. Multiple this by hundreds of thousands of requests from bots on the Internet spoofing the one victim address and you get a very large flood of traffic to the victim machine.Holden says DNS is becoming an increasingly popular target for DDoS. As many as 27 million DNS servers across the Internet are “open” in a way that allows them to be hijacked this way. That means that while this week’s attack may not have knocked us Americans off of the Web, the amount of localized disruption overseas was definitely large enough to cause serious reverberations. This may not have been the Web’s D-Day, but these could definitely be the opening salvo of a hacker blitzkrieg. Let’s hope the ISPs and powers that be don’t Neville Chamberlain it. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

A Look Back at Year One of Creative District

first_imgCreative District was launched nearly a year ago to connect filmmakers and video pros. Is it working…and will it last?Technicolor launched Creative District back in March of 2014 as a form of LinkedIn for Film and Art Professionals. For the most part the site has acted as such, but to a slightly different degree. I was steered toward using Creative District through a fellow filmmaker who is a member of the committee that provides feedback and insight on how to make the service better. So now, with nearly a year into the service, here are my thoughts.Does the service really help professional filmmakers?Through my experience within the last year I would have to say, yes. I was able to gain work as a concept artist and cinematographer through the service. However, only one of these professionals that I collaborated with were also members of Creative District, others found me through the service and contacted me directly. This tells me the service reaches more people than just fellow collaborators within the service. So, being able to list your projects and then reach out for collaboration, or have collaborators find you is extremely helpful.There are just over 16,000 members on Creative District now so collaboration is limited to an extent. The majority of projects that are presented are independent and documentary, for which the site is really best suited for now. But as membership totals increase so should the number of projects and the type of projects. There appears to be great potential for more and more higher budget productions to be listed on the site through their creators.How does Creative District work?While the site is geared toward filmmakers, creative professionals from many different fields also have a large presence. Looking at the service from a filmmaker’s perspective, you’ll begin by creating a new project.Once you’ve gone through the easy process of adding a new project it’s time to begin looking for talent to help make this film a reality. Hopefully you’ll have other professional filmmakers within the service that you already have a connection with and you can begin pulling your talent together. If you don’t, Creative District allows you to fully network with a pool of professionals in various fields. Click the ‘people’ tab and you can look through the entire list of professionals and can narrow it down to those who live in your area.The best way to find talent on Creative District, other than just reaching out to other professionals, is to create job postings. By doing this under your project page it allows other professionals to see these job postings and to apply for them.This also works in the reverse if you yourself are looking for work or wanting to expand your reel. Several times I’ve ended up bidding for a job against several other professionals.Lastly, once you get your project posted and rolling into production you can submit it for a $5,000 grant that Creative District rewards professionals each month – added bonus.Overall thoughts on Creative DistrictDoes Creative District have staying power? I think it does – for professional filmmakers and productions. Through the site I’ve been able to cultivate relationships with other professionals.When looking at the number of overall professionals in the filmmaking and creative arts industries worldwide, 16,000 is merely a fraction of that population. If more professionals begin using the service then the potential for networking and moving your career forward greatly increase. We’ll see where this next year takes us…by then we should have a firm grasp of where the service is really going.Are you a member of Creative District?

iPhone 7 outsells iPhone 8 in the US as fans hold out for iPhone X: Report

first_imgApple’s iPhone 7 is outperforming the newly launched iPhone 8, according to a recent report. It looks like the Cupertino giant’s iPhone model from last year is still a strong favourite for consumers even in 2018, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have seen a poor response since launch. The latest report comes following an IHS Markit report last week that said the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were the top selling smartphones in the first half of 2017.As per data from KeyBanc Capital Market’s John Vinh citing US carrier store surveys, the iPhone 7 continues to be the preferred model over the iPhone 8, Reuters reports. This is surprising considering that newer iPhones usually see a strong demand with fans lining up outside Apple Stores from Day 1. This time around, the response towards the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been pretty mild as fans await the iPhone X.US carrier AT&T said last week that its third-quarter postpaid handset upgrades dropped by nearly 900,000 compared to the same time last year, and Bokerage Jefferies has linked this to poor demand for the iPhone 8. To recall, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus look similar to their predecessors with minor hardware improvements. The most notable change with the new handsets are their glass backs for Qi wireless charging support. Based on the response for the new iPhone models, it looks like the upgrade isn’t as appealing as Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone X.Reuters notes that given the similar design of the iPhone 7 series and the iPhone 8 series, and considering the relatively lower price tags of last year’s models at $549 following a price cut, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have likely to become all the more attractive for customers. In India, the iPhone 7 can be availed starting at Rs 38,999 for the 32GB variant while the iPhone 7 Plus is priced around Rs 60,000 following price cuts.advertisementThe report also notes that the modest promotion of the iPhone 8 by US carriers could also be a factor for the slow sales of the device. “While carriers continue to offer promotions for the new iPhone 8, they have been much more modest compared to the iPhone 7 launch last year,” Vinh wrote.Meanwhile, the iPhone X sports a brand new design language for the Cupertino giant, featuring an edge-to-edge display and powerful innards, as well as a larger battery capacity, to name a few. The iPhone X will go on sale next month, and it is likely that fans feel upgrading to the iPhone X makes more sense than going for the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Of course, the iPhone X also comes with an extra premium price tag starting at $999 as well so one will have to wait and see how people respond to the pricing. In India, the iPhone X will be available for Rs 89,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs 1,02,000 for the 256GB variant.One will have to wait and see if the response for the iPhone X is better and if it manages to perform better in sales compared to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone X goes up for pre-orders on October 27, and will go on sale from November 3.last_img read more

Muguruza calls for more women’s tennis on

first_imgHong Kong, Oct 8 (AFP) Former world number one Garbine Muguruza called Monday for greater television coverage of women’s tennis, as the game battles to recover from allegations of sexism that erupted at the US Open.The Spaniard, who is struggling to end a slump in form that has seen her slip to 15th in the world, welcomed a new five-year deal the WTA has signed with the Tennis Channel in the US which aims to boost coverage and attract more viewers to the women’s game.”I think it’s great, I think the more tennis we see is good,” the double Grand Slam champion said at the WTA Hong Kong Open as she prepared for her debut match at the tournament.”Sometimes I feel that (television) plays more men’s matches, not only in the United States but also in other countries, in Spain as well, and people need to see (women’s tennis) in order to have their daughters play.”Muguruza told reporters she believed tennis — where the earning gender gap persists despite the Grand Slams offering equal prize money — was “lucky” to suffer less from sexism than other sports.But she added it was important the women’s game achieved a higher profile.”Just to see it on TV helps people to realise they’re is also a women’s side.”The women’s game was plunged into controversy at the US Open when losing finalist Serena Williams lashed out at umpire Carlos Ramos in spectacular fashion.The 23-time Grand Slam champion lost in straight sets to Japan’s Naomi Osaka after a bad-tempered confrontation with Ramos that she later blamed on sexism.advertisementWilliams called Ramos a “thief” and a “liar” in a heated row with the Portuguese official that eventually saw her docked a game.Williams later said women players could not get away with “even half of what a guy can do”.- Osaka pullout -=================The tournament also generated unwanted headlines after the United States Tennis Association admitted they were wrong to hand French player Alize Cornet a warning for slipping off her shirt on court after realising she had put it on back-to-front.Muguruza, speaking on her 25th birthday Monday, admitted she had struggled for form in 2018 after two glorious years which had seen her clinch first the French Open in 2016 before being crowned Wimbledon champion last year.”I’ve had a few injuries but every year you have something,” she said.”I just think I’ve played a lot of matches that didn’t go my way, I’ve struggled in a few events and I couldn’t find the right quality of game to beat these opponents — and I’m still searching for it.”She has already missed out on the WTA season finale in Singapore after a poor season, but said the Hong Kong field remained competitive despite world number six Osaka, who triumphed over Williams in New York, pulling out with a back injury.”There is a very good player who’s not going to play but I don’t think I have more chances now than before — there is a very tough draw.”I have no expectation.

Shipping Giants Slowing Down for Ocean Giants

first_imgzoom A coalition of government, non-profit and marine industry groups have announced the launch of a new trial incentive program to slow ships down in the Santa Barbara Channel in an effort to reduce air pollution and increase protection of endangered whales.Six global shipping companies, Maersk Line, COSCO, Hapag Lloyd, K Line, Matson, and United Arab Shipping Company are participating in the speed reduction incentive program from July through October.Selected ships in their fleets will reduce their speed to 12 knots or less (reduced from typical speeds of 14-18 knots) as they travel between Point Conception and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Each company will receive USD 2,500 per participating vessel passing through the Santa Barbara Channel.Ship strikes are a threat to recovering endangered whale populations. The ships also emit greenhouse gases and air pollutants, and account for more than 50 percent of ozone-forming nitrogen oxides in Santa Barbara County.“Few people realize that ships off our coast, especially those moving at faster speeds, are a risk to endangered whales and the quality of the air we breathe,” said Kristi Birney of the Environmental Defense Center.“Reducing ship speeds to 12 knots or less reduces emissions of smog-forming air pollutants that harm our health,” said Dave Van Mullem, director, Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District.The program has funding to support 16 transits, and the initial response has been extremely positive.The coalition received more than 25 ship transit requests to be included in the trial and is seeking additional funding to expand the trial.“Slowing ships down reduces the likelihood that a ship strike on a whale will be fatal,” said Chris Mobley, superintendent, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.The vessel speed program is supported by local and national foundations. The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will manage the incentive payments with funding from the Santa Barbara Foundation and the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District.Payments will be provided upon verification of the ships’ speeds through the Channel, using Automatic Identification System monitors that receive speed and location data from the transponders on ships as they transit.

Guyanas barber shops beauty salons offer UNbacked HIV prevention advice

The UN Population Fund (http://www.unfpa.org/public/News/pid/2128>UNFPA) project seeks to provide some 2,000 young people access to information, skills, services and supplies they can use to protect their health. It involves training staff of shops in Georgetown to answer simple HIV-related questions, pass out informational material, dispense both male and female condoms to clients – and even provide on-site counselling and testing. Currently, over 7,000 male and 400 female condoms are distributed monthly by requests in the shops and salons.With a population of just over 751,000, Guyana has one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the region. According to the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the prevalence rate is about 1.6 per cent for pregnant women and 26.6 per cent among sex workers, and AIDS is currently the leading cause of death among the 20-49 age group.UNFPA chose the participating shops and salons based on their location in malls, parks, popular attractions, or low-income communities, and owners received added marketing exposure for their small businesses and are provided with incentives, such as access to promotional materials.“Shops were informed how their companies would be promoted through the project, and the economic value of participating,” said UNFPA Guyana Liaison Officer, Patrice La Fleur “They would most importantly provide safe places to discuss sexuality and the prevention of HIV.”Once the shops were chosen, two employees from each shop were sent for training on basic HIV and AIDS education and prevention means. They were also taught to properly monitor the project and introduced to safe practices within the context of their own work, such as ensuring the sterility of hair cutting machines, razors, needles for stitching and weaving, manicure and pedicure implements, and tattooing and body piercing equipment.In addition to training participants about sexual and reproductive health and gender issues, the project also focuses on building life skills such as communication, healthy relationships, and leadership. “Participants expressed personal gains in their quality of relationships with friends, family, and clients,” said UNFPA Programme Officer Babsie Giddings, who monitors the project. 20 March 2009Barber shops and beauty salons in Guyana’s capital are taking part in a United Nations project to spread crucial information about HIV prevention in the small nation, which has one of the highest prevalence rates in its region. read more

Colbert connected with Case Robison on a 25-yard score later in the first quarter for a 13-3 lead.But the Cardinals (7-5), making their first FCS playoff appearance, lost two fumbles in the red zone and had two field-goal attempts go wide right, all in the second half.

Ohio State wins game for the ages against Michigan State

OSU won, 49-37. Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorBreathe in. Breathe out. But make it quick.That’s the mindset Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer had after his team topped Michigan State on Saturday night in East Lansing, Mich.“We can’t exhale very long,” Meyer said after his Buckeyes won, 49-37, in a rematch of the 2013 Big Ten title game. “We go on the road next week against a team that whooped Iowa.”The Buckeyes (8-1, 5-0) now sit alone atop the Big Ten East Division standings after breaking a tie with the Spartans, but are scheduled to travel to Minneapolis on Saturday to take on Minnesota. The Golden Gophers shellacked the Hawkeyes to the tune of a 51-14 win Saturday to move to 7-2 on the season.Despite the implications the win against the Spartans has for the Buckeyes going forward, senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett said the most important focus for OSU has to be put on the Golden Gophers.“The biggest thing is making sure guys are ready for that game,” Bennett said after the win. “Minnesota is a really good opponent. They’ve been winning a lot of games.”Going forward, redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett — who threw for 300 yards and ran for another 86 while scoring five total touchdowns against the Spartans — said preparation will be key for OSU going forward.“One of the main things we need to do is just make sure we practice hard,” Barrett said after the game. “We’re going to enjoy this, but knowing that we still need to play better next week.”After a run of four straight games starting at either 3:30 or 8 p.m., Bennett added it will be important to be ready to go for a noon kick against Minnesota.“It’s gonna be the first noon game or whatever it is in like four weeks, so we’re gonna have to make sure that guys are mentally ready for it and can still get the juice up that we had tonight,” he said.But even with Minnesota on the horizon, Bennett said the win against Michigan State keeps the Buckeyes’ long-term goals in the realm of possibility after the Spartans dashed OSU’s title hopes last year with a 34-24 win in the 2013 Big Ten Championship Game.“Like I said before, it’s not about revenge. It’s about accomplishing what we can accomplish this year,” he said. “And so by having that big win over a really good team, it really just keeps everything alive and starts putting us in the conversation.”That conversation surrounds the College Football Playoff standings, with this season being the first year of the new championship format. Heading into Saturday, the Buckeyes were firmly on the outside looking in with a No. 14 ranking in the CFP poll, but they picked up a win against the Spartans — which are No. 8 in the poll — that few people expected them to have. When the new Associated Press top 25 was released Sunday, OSU was No. 8 while the Spartans fell to No. 12.Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott — who picked up 154 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns in the game — said OSU came in as the underdogs looking to make a national statement.“We had no one behind our back except for Buckeye nation and ourselves,” Elliott said after the game. “We just had to come out and prove to the world that we’re ready.”Meyer called the win “one for the ages,” and added he felt his team showed its worth under the lights at Spartan Stadium.“We played a top-10 team and we really played our best and on the road,” he said.When it comes to his team’s standing in the playoff picture, Meyer said he still doesn’t “know enough,” but made clear his feelings on where the Buckeyes should be.“I think it is,” Meyer — who earned a $330,000 raise after the 2013 season — said as to whether OSU is a playoff-caliber team. “I love my team.”While the CFP poll will decide who has a shot at a national championship come season’s end — the top four teams earn spots in the playoff — OSU co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner said the Buckeyes regained confidence in themselves with the win.“I think we earned back the belief our players have in our program, belief in how we do things at Ohio State, how coach Meyer runs his program,” Warinner said after the game. “We just got our confidence back that we can win a big game, especially on the road.”Barrett agreed with Warinner, and added the win helped to prove the Buckeyes’ doubters wrong.“It really gave us confidence that we could play with the best of them because there was talk that we could only play well against very bad teams,” he said. “This was a very good team in Michigan State, and we came out and played well.”Just like Warinner and Barrett, Bennett said the win gave OSU confidence, but he added that it showed the Buckeyes are the “real deal,” and said it should put them in consideration for a playoff spot moving forward.“It just kind of gives us confidence; it makes other people just kind of turn their heads and start considering Ohio State for the top four,” he said.But while a panel will vote the top four on, the Buckeyes can control their own destiny when it comes to the Big Ten. After sitting in a tie with Michigan State, the win firmly established OSU as tops in the conference for the time being.Senior wide receiver Devin Smith — who Meyer said had his best game in an OSU uniform against the Spartans — said he was “angry” after last year’s loss, coupled with the Buckeyes’ image as underdogs, heading into East Lansing. He said the win showed the conference and the nation what kind of team OSU is.“We came out here and (made) a statement,” Smith said after the game. “And then that shows that we are the best team in the Big Ten, and we try to play like that.”Regardless of the Big Ten standing, or even the Buckeyes’ spot in the CFP poll, Meyer said he simply knows how well his team is playing right now, and added he’ll have to wait and see what that means going forward.“This team right now is playing on a very, very high level,” Meyer said. “I’m not sure what all that means other than we got to get ready to play next week.” read more

Ohio State womens basketball tops VCU 9686 Amy Scullion returns

Credit: Nina Budeiri / Lantern photographerRedshirt-senior guard Amy Scullion shoots a free throw against VCU on Nov. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 96-86.Credit: Nina Budeiri / Lantern photographerIn a tight contest, the Ohio State women’s basketball team defeated Virginia Commonwealth after pulling away late in the game.OSU junior guard Ameryst Alston got the action started with a quick layup in the opening seconds of the 96-86 win. Both teams shot the ball well through the first six minutes as the game was tied, 20-20. Then a jumper from freshman guard Kelsey Mitchell sparked a 19-7 run over a span of nine minutes to take a 39-27 lead for the Buckeyes.Virginia Commonwealth outscored OSU, 16-13, in the last 5:48 of the half to make the score 52-43 as the teams headed to the locker room. The Buckeyes shot 58 percent from the field in the first half, while holding the Rams to 37 percent.The Rams opened the second half with an 8-0 run to cut the Buckeye lead to just one point. But OSU answered with an 11-2 run to bring the lead back into double digits. OSU went on to score seven unanswered points to take its largest lead of the game, 70-56.Virginia Commonwealth cut the deficit to six with less than nine minutes remaining. After an 8-2 run by OSU, the Rams hit three consecutive 3-pointers to pull the game within three with less than four minutes remaining in the half. The Buckeyes closed out the game on a 14-7 run to get the 10-point victory.OSU improved to 2-2 for the season. Alston led all scorers with 34 points while Mitchell added 29 of her own. Freshman forward Alexa Hart came off the bench to tally 12 points along with eight blocks.Alston said the team excelled in finding an offensive rhythm throughout the game.  “I think we did a pretty good job, we got a nice little pace going,” Alston said. “We kind of got stagnant for a little while but I think we did pretty good offensively.”Redshirt-senior guard Amy Scullion added three points and seven rebounds off the bench for the Buckeyes. Scullion was in action for the first time since the end of the 2013-14 season after initially forgoing her final year of eligibility to attend medical school. Scullion said that while she had some anxiety at the start of the game, it eventually wore off. “Not going to lie, I was a little nervous, I felt like a freshman again,” Scullion said. “Once we started going up and down a little bit it wasn’t bad.”Mitchell found herself in foul trouble, earning four throughout the game. Mitchell said that she’s still making the transition from playing defense in high school to college.  “I’m in the process of learning,” she said. “I know I’m at the collegiate level so stuff I used to get away with in high school, I’m not going to get away with. I know as I grow, my fouls have to stop.”Coach Kevin McGuff said Mitchell’s fouls are a result of her effort on the court and sees them as something she’ll eventually overcome.“She’s so competitive and is always trying to make a play for her team that sometimes she gets herself in a little bit of trouble, but she’ll grow through that,” McGuff said. Up next for OSU is a trip to the Virgin Islands to participate in the Paradise Jam. The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Clemson on Thursday at 1:15 p.m. in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. read more

Alzheimers Disease is Whole Body Problem

first_imgStay on target Indestructible Poop Parasites May Be Lurking In Your PoolWHO Adds ‘Gaming Disorder’ To List of Official Diseases Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Brain-based Alzheimer’s disease may be triggered by breakdowns elsewhere in the body, according to a new study.The neurodegenerative disease is linked to the beta-amyloid protein (or an amyloid-related mechanism), which forms plaques that smother brain cells and often cause dementia.Besides soft nervous tissue, though, the toxic protein is also produced in blood platelets, blood vessels, and muscles.And while it was previously unclear whether amyloid beta from outside the brain could contribute to Alzheimer’s, this study, published today in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, shows it can.“Alzheimer’s disease is clearly a disease of the brain, but our research shows that we need to pay attention to the whole body to understand where it comes from, and how to stop it,” University of British Columbia psychiatry professor Weihong Song said in a statement.Song and Yan-Jiang Wang, a neurology professor at the Third Military Medical University in China, demonstrated the theory through parabiosis.That is, they surgically attached two mice—one healthy, one modified to carry a gene that produces high levels of amyloid beta—so they share the same blood supply.After a year, scientists found that the normal mouse had “contracted” Alzheimer’s, presumably due to the spread of amyloid beta from its mutated twin.Now unable to remember where it left its cheese and prone to mood swings, the previously undiseased rodent suffers a number of Alzheimer’s-like effects: plaques, twisted protein strands (which slowly kill brain cells from the inside out), inflammation, microbleeds.Learning and memory loss—signs of a healthy brain—were also impaired, even in those mice joined for as few as four months.“The blood-brain barrier weakens as we age,” Song said. “That might allow more amyloid beta to infiltrate the brain, supplementing what is produced by the brain itself and accelerating the deterioration.”Head of UBC’s Townsend Family Laboratories and a Canada Research Chair in Alzheimer’s Disease, Song envisions future drug therapies that could target the kidney or liver, ridding the blood of the beta-amyloid protein before it reaches the brain.Some reports suggest blood transfusions and surgical equipment may pose a risk, as well.last_img read more

Battlefield 3 PC specs appear briefly at GameStop

first_imgAny PC gamers waiting eagerly to buy and play Battlefield 3 will be asking themselves the single, most important question: is my PC powerful enough to play it?Until EA and DICE officially release details of the required specs you just don’t know for sure. In most cases today’s mid-range PCs will run the game, but you end up using a lower resolution and the special effects turned down or off to some extent. Only those with a gaming rig purchased or built in the last 6 months can really be sure of being able to turn everything up to 11.GameStop seem to have answered the spec question early, though, by accidentally posting the minimum and recommended requirements for Battlefield 3 on the product listing page. Those specs have now gone, but not before they were grabbed by a few gaming sites.So, if you intend on buying the game on October 25th here’s the minimum and recommended specs you need to be aiming for:MinimumCore 2 Duo dual-core processor running at 2GHz (or equivalent AMD)2GB RAM10GB hard drive space (digital version) or 15GB (disc version)Windows Vista or Windows 7Nvidia or ATi graphics card supporting DirectX 10RecommendedQuad core processor (no speed specified)4GB RAM10GB hard drive space (digital version) or 15GB (disc version)Windows Vista or Windows 7GeForce GTX 460 or Radeon HD 6850, or equivalent DirectX 11 cardWhile the recommended specs are quite high, you have to consider this is the new Frostbite 2.0 engine which is looking forward rather than back in terms of supported features and hardware.What doesn’t make sense at the moment is why the disc version is 5GB larger than the digital game. Is this due to additional feature shipping with the disc?Whatever the case, with Battlefield 3 still 3 months away it sounds like a great opportunity to start choosing components for a new gaming rig built just in time to play it.More at Gamerzineslast_img read more

Parental controls dont stop teens from watching porn

first_imgParents, take note. If you think that Internet filtering tools – such as parental controls – will stop your teenage child from accessing explicit sexual content online then you may be wrong, a new study suggests.The findings, published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behaviour and Social Networking, indicated that Internet filtering tools are ineffective.According to the researchers from the University of Oxford in Britain, the use of Internet filtering tools is widespread but there has been no conclusive evidence on their effectiveness until now. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”It’s important to consider the efficacy of Internet filtering. Internet filtering tools are expensive to develop and maintain, and can easily ‘underblock’ due to the constant development of new ways of sharing content,” said co-author Victoria Nash.The research team presented two studies – one exploratory analysis of secondary data collected in the European Union and one preregistered study focused on British adolescents and caregivers – with nearly 15,000 participants. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”We were also interested to find out how many households would need to use filtering technologies in order to stop one adolescent from seeing online pornography,” said co-author Andrew Przybylski.”The findings from our preliminary study indicated that somewhere between 17 and 77 households would need to use Internet filtering tools in order to prevent a single young person from accessing sexual content,” Przybylski added.The results from follow-up study showed no statistically or practically significant protective effects for filtering. The researchers noted that there should be more research done to solidify these findings.last_img read more
