As many as half of the CD-ROMs produced at the time bore the near-ubiquitous AOL logo, offering early computer users the opportunity to surf the internet for a flat fee – at the time, US$19.99 for unlimited monthly access.With nearly half of U.S.-based internet traffic flowing through AOL, the stage was set for a social evolution of sorts that shifted our collective relationship with technology and each other. AOL Instant Messenger, or AIM, was launched in May 1997 as a way for AOL users to chat each other in real time, via text.The service’s Dec. 15 shutdown was announced, notably, on a new real-time text communication channel, Twitter. That is just one testament to AIM’s lasting effects on how people use technology to connect today.Interaction, in privateAIM provided a space for discreet real-time interaction, with a layer of privacy not necessarily afforded by the home phone. In 1997, mobile phones were still remarkably expensive (the Nokia 6160 cost about $900 and the Motorola StarTAC cost nearly $1,000) and most could not send text messages. A few savvy tech users used pager-speak to communicate “143” (“I love you”) to their partners; a few others learned how romantic an email can be. But technology-based interactions were limited; they didn’t allow for real-time connection and required access to a landline (if you were on the road, likely a payphone) and a computer terminal.The login page from AIM.com, indicating the platform’s closure on Dec. 15, 2017 – complete with the author’s screen name, first established in 1997 when he was in high school. As of late November, none of his 150+ contacts was logged in. Nicholas Bowman/WVU, CC BY-NDAIM’s debut let friends and family connect in real time through their personal computers. Today, people might debate the proper balance between screentime and facetime in a society in which screens are seemingly everywhere. Yet communication research shows that screentime can complement rather than take away from facetime. For instance, scholars such as sociologist danah boyd argue that these venues were (and are still) critical for teenagers, who used AIM as a private space to engage each other and explore their own identities. For boyd, communication technologies have provided teens with ways to socialize with each other away from structured adult supervision – something that today’s children find increasingly difficult.Screen names and social interactionWhile certainly not the first form of social interaction online, AIM established for many people one of the most critical elements of online identity: the screen name. In a text-only environment, screen names provide some of the only identifying cues for users and become the user’s embodied identity. Through these screen names, the AIM space felt like a social one, populated with real people and personalities rather than cold screens and text. In fact, many people still use their AIM screen name for other social media services, and many more became skilled at creating and maintaining more than one screen name.Unlike face-to-face conversations, technologies such as AIM also allowed conversations to persist on-screen, both in the short term (during the chat) and in the long term (as an archived chat). This can affect how people see themselves, as well as their friends – as users revisit ongoing conversations, they can adapt their language (and even their self-presentation) accordingly.Communication, sans cuesWhen it became popular, the text-only nature of AIM seemed anathema to social interaction – after all, how could people communicate emotions and feelings via text, stripped of the nonverbal cues (such as facial expressions and touch) that are so critical to human communication? People didn’t make the connection to the fact that it’s fairly common to have in-person interactions disrupted by nonverbal cues – such as when someone’s facial expressions don’t match the content of the conversation.Early consensus about communication technology assumed that because the technologies didn’t have nonverbal communication cues, they would be less effective for communication. Tntdj, CC BYCommunication scholar Joseph Walther theorized that a reason communication technologies such as AIM were capable of fostering meaningful social interaction is that users are able to overcome the lack of nonverbals. In fact, he says, systems like AIM made it easier to form relationships online, because people might be less critical or judgmental of each other, knowing that some social cues were missing – and focus more on the words of the conversation itself.AIM is also where many people first saw and used emojis (then still called emoticons) to convey emotional context around ambiguous texts – adding a smiley or a frown-face to clarify what’s meant by a message such as “waiting for you to arrive.”The platform also proved fertile for the development of text-speak abbreviations to save keystrokes – the sorts of “LOL” and “BRB” notes now ubiquitous in smartphone texting. While some feared that teenagers’ use of techno-gibberish would damage their language development, today’s millennials are reading more than any other generation. This use of language suggests they may have more – not less – sophisticated communications skills.AIM as a legacy technologyAs AIM shuts down at the end of 2017, the program can fairly call itself a success. It provided the earliest widespread platform for real-time text-based chat, honing users’ skills for the eventual adoption of smartphone-based texting and microblogs like Twitter. Indeed, as AOL’s own statement about the shutdown says, “The way in which we communicate with each other has profoundly changed” – in large part because of AIM.Of course, for technology buffs still looking toward bygone technologies, another cue-lean, relational technology introduced in 1997 is making a comeback: The Tamagotchi digital pocket pets were re-released in November. Otherwise, those looking to revisit AIM after its closure might consider the video game “Emily is Away” to play through an interactive scenario with their high school bestie.

PARK LINNÉ Cologne: Laying of the foundation stone for 50 additional apartments‘PARK LINNÉ represent another example of how to convert industrial fallow sites into a lively urban district with stimulating effects on the surroundings’, client Michael Dornieden emphasises. In the presence of Senior Mayor Jürgen Roters, the laying of the foundation stone for the urban centre of the quarter, the three city villas LACANDÓN, TORRES and CRISTÓBAL, was now celebrated. The villas will provide 50 new apartments with floor areas ranging from 65 to 187 square metres and 64 parking spaces in the underground car park. The design was originated by kister scheithauer gross architekten (ksg) from Cologne, who implement a total of nine city villas (E2-E10) and one apartment complex (F1+G1) in the PARK LINNÉ development.Save this picture!Master PlanElegant city villas, classic townhouses, trendy lofts, and stylish city apartments, embedded in a unique garden landscape, at the highest level – that is how the client, DORNIEDEN PARK LINNÉ GMBH & CO. KG, formulated his wishes. The urban planning concept is based on the image of an urban quarter with proportioned streetscapes and discernible detached houses. This ensemble is framed by distinctive, higher corner buildings, which define the new spatial edges.Save this picture!© Yohan ZerdounThe buildings LACANDÓN (E8) and LA GALLEGA (E3) serve to define a gate situation leading into the interior of the site under development. The space derives its order from the staggering of building depths and heights. Towards the south, an imaged sequence of squares develops along an axis, which is further emphasised by the positioning of groups of trees. ‘Clear shapes and inherently consistent façades characterise the external appearance of PARK LINNÉ“, Professor Johannes Kister explains.Save this picture!ElevationWith protrusions and recesses the different alternating plastered surfaces in bright colours give the buildings a classic-modern appearance. The entrance portals are partly equipped with wooden doors as well as stone slabs and visually structure the entire ensemble. Furthermore, windows predominantly extending down to the floor, loggias and roof terraces determine the architecture. Considerately worked out details of the respective entrance situation give each villa its individual charm and strengthen the generation of an address.Save this picture!© Yohan ZerdounThe COLÓN apartment complex (F1+G1) has already been completed and the other residential units shall be ready for occupancy as from the end of 2015.Project gallerySee allShow lessJuuL House / NKS ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBuilding no. 8 / Skälsö ArkitekterSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Eupener Straße, 50933 Cologne, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Early Soybean Yields Good in Eastern Indiana

first_img Facebook Twitter Huffman said moisture levels are averaging between 28-22% and, with continued dry weather, should be ready for harvest in about 2 or 3 weeks, “We should be in the low 20% range on much of the corn, and this will fall into the teens in the next few weeks.” He added, however, that there are some fields in Eastern counties where corn has just reached black layer.

Sunny and dry conditions have let growers in Eastern Indiana get the soybean harvest rolling. TC Huffman with DuPont Pioneer says yield results on the early planted varieties are good, “The 2.8 to the 3.2s have been pretty good , but I have some concern that these may be the best yields we get.” He told HAT some of the later season varieties did not benefit from the late August rain, and he does not expect them to yield as well.

Some early planted corn was harvested early in September, but later planted hybrids are still too wet. He worries, however, that some corn may not be able to stay in the field much longer, “I have been walking some of our research plots, and it has confirmed my fears that we have more stalk integrity issues than most people realize.”  He said strong winds or heavy rains could cause serious problems and create a real problem for corn left standing in the field.

We have the Taoiseach with his home county and its state of the art Pairc Ui Chaoimh, so when the vaccinations do arrive there, they are going to be set up ten times better than Limerick. Even Galway has the Galway races, (Galway Racecourse), and we’ve the Radisson, and lets be honest about it, it is a small hotel with a limited capacity in terms of vaccine pods and you couldn’t compare the Radisson to Pairc Ui Chaoimh.”“I’m calling on the government to relook at Limerick and provide vaccination centres within the city and county, I think it’s really unfair.”Cllr Daly, who is a member of the HSE Regional Health Forum West, added that, another of Cork’s vaccine centres, Mallow GAA Club, “is an absolutely monster development”.“I’d suggest the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick would definitely be one place they could set up a vaccine centre; our gaa clubs, our big churches in Limerick city; and, we have one of the biggest universities in the country at the University of Limerick”, Cllr Daly remarked.“It’s terrible, we are just being left behind, and there’s no clarity over when the centres are going to open, to me its a case of – keep it quiet and let everyone accept it and hope that nobody asks any questions – well I don’t think it’s acceptable”.Informed sources said the University of Limerick had offered its facilities as a vaccination site in early January this year, but it is not included in a list of 37 centres announced by the health minister this morning.A UL spokesman said: “UL President Professor Kerstin Mey has offered the use of UL facilities for vaccination purposes to Professor Brian MacCraith, chair of the COVID-19 vaccine taskforce. UL remains ready to support the HSE vaccination programme in any way it can. The roll-out of the programme and the logistics are a matter for the HSE.”The Department of Health was asked last Tuesday, and again last Saturday, and again this morning, about the offer by UL but it has yet to respond.Limerick Sinn Fein TD, Maurice Quinlivan, also questioned the lack of a vaccination centre within Limerick city, adding he was “deeply concerned” with the location announced by the health minister and that it the decision to locate one at the Radisson “beggars belief”.“One must wonder the extent of local consultation that was sought by the Department of Health in choosing this location.This decision demonstrates a lack of imagination and foresight,” said Deputy Quinlivan.“It is illogical to put the centre in a location that is remote for many city residents. The next cohort of people to be scheduled to avail of the vaccine are our more senior citizens. Many of these citizens are dependent on public transport and the selection of this location will put a burden on them,” he added.The Taoiseach and Minister for Health have been asked for comment.

Beginning with the pronouncement of the judgement in the case of Justice K. S. Puttaswamy (Retd.) and Anr. vs Union Of India And Ors. by the Supreme Court of India, which has enunciated the Right to Privacy as a fundamental right falling under Article 21 which guarantees Protection Of Life And Personal Liberty under the aegis of the Indian Constitution to the introduction of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018 and the revision of the same following the comments from the stakeholders and the public to the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 (hereinafter PDP Bill). As a growing technology-based economy and a country with one of the highest per capita consumption of the internet, it is safe to say that the introduction of the privacy charter in the Indian legal sphere will be game changing. The current legal framework in India pertaining to technology laws and data privacy is derived from the Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act) and the Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011 (Personal Data Rules). Although, the IT Act does its fair bit to protect the rights of the citizens in the virtual sphere as well as redress any damages or injuries faced by them through misutilisation of technology, it does not adequately address the multifaceted spectrum of issues and precautions pertaining to Personal Data and does not address the right to data privacy of individuals at all. In an effort to understand why this is problematic let us examine the fairly recent decision by the Ministry of Information Technology (MeitY), which by invoking it’s powers under section 69A of the IT Act read with the relevant provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009 and in view of the emergent nature of threats as well as the rise of tensions on the Indo-Chinese borders, decided to ban 59 mobile applications or apps of Chinese origin. A press release by the Government dated June 29, 2020 states that the decision was taken after information was received suggesting that these apps were engaged in activities prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India. This was followed by the decision to ban another 47 apps on July 27, 2020 which were functioning as clones of the previously banned apps and another 118 apps being banned on September 02, 2020. To someone who is new to the privacy debate, this may sound like a triumph of the Indian Government, to us who have been interacting in this sphere, this confirmed our worst fears- the Indian cyberspace is at the mercy of the world and our citizens have no legal and quantifiable protection against the collection, processing and potential weaponisation of their Personal Data. The Personal Data Rules introduce the concept of Personal Data however, they fail to provide cohesive instructions pertaining to the handling of data or the specific responsibilities of all entities and stakeholders such as organizations collecting Personal Data, the intermediaries or third-parties involved in the processing or storage of Personal Data. One of the most crucial issues under the current legal framework is that foreign entities not registered under Indian law are allowed to collect, store and process sensitive personal data. This is problematic on two accounts (i) no verification of entities collecting personal data of citizens can be carried out as there may not be a certifiable way to do so thereby increasing the risk of misappropriation of the Personal Data and (ii) in case of any misappropriation of the Personal Data, there is no way to seek adequate redressal since the entities are not registered under India laws and therefore the exercising of jurisdiction on the relevant matter by a competent court may be a lengthy and tiresome process. This is an oversight which has allowed various foreign entities to not only constantly collect, store and process Personal Data of Indian citizens but also enter into valid and binding contracts with them such through the Privacy Policies and Terms and Conditions of Use (both being applicable and enforceable legal instruments under law) of websites and devices alike. Thus, permeating the legal sanctity of these legal instruments with enforceability and jurisdictional issues. This is where the need for an appropriate legal framework safeguarding data privacy becomes crucial. The Personal Data of Indian citizens must be treated with the same importance as the tangible national resources of the country, the inability of the Government to exercise control over the Personal Data of its citizens may not only cause undue and unauthorized exploitation of the same but also endanger the national security and sovereignty of the nation. The PDP Bill strives to provide the necessary legal framework pertaining to various stakeholders involved in the handling of sensitive personal data or information. It imbibes in its structure the rights and duties of entities collecting personal data, the person providing such Personal Data (while making adequate provisions for Personal Data of children) as well as the manner in which the transfer of Personal Data shall be done either within the country or outside the territory of India. The PDP Bill also carves out penalties for the contravention of its provision as well as offences pertaining to misappropriation of Personal Data. Further, two crucial points which the PDP Bill addresses are the obligations of Significant Data Fiduciaries which are entities processing high volumes of Personal Data, thereby ensuring to imbue the legislation with the necessary checks and balances and the introduction of the Right to be Forgotten, which is an indispensable extension of the Right to Privacy through various mechanisms like anonymization and de-identification of Personal Data. However, these mechanisms from a technical standpoint of safeguarding an individual’s Right to Privacy are not enough. For the Right to be forgotten to be upheld in a true sense, the organisations must configure their internal technical framework to not just randomise the data through protocols like anonymization and de-identification but to in fact unlearn and forget the data points which are associated with the individual. The true meaning of “The Right to be Forgotten” should be to enable a Clean-Slate Protocol in the most nuanced sense, with no data being left behind for revival, as and when necessary. The organisations, however, may for record-keeping purposes store the entire set of data in compliance with data retention regulations, if any but they must work towards ensuring that the learnt recommendation model unlearns these data points belonging to any person who may elect to exercise their right to be forgotten. However, the shortcomings of the PDP Bill lie in the unfettered power it provides to the Government to circumvent an individual’s Right to Privacy. This is in direct contrast to the solidified presence and unaltering characteristics of Fundamental Rights. Therefore, it is critical that a legislation, aimed at providing safeguards and structure to the Fundamental Right to Privacy does not empower the Government to disperse the same at its own justification, an action which will not only be ultra vires the legislative arm of the county but also defeat the very purpose of the law, given the impermeability of the Constitutional and Fundamental Right to Life and Liberty under the aegis of which the Right to Privacy has been envisaged. While it is clear that India’s overdue appointment with Data Privacy has a few more hours until it begins, nothing stops its citizens and its corporations to undertake self-governance pertaining to the practices involving the safeguarding of the Right to Privacy which has been guaranteed by the Constitution of India, a charter of the people, for the people and by the people.Views are personal.(Author is a Practicing Lawyer at Mumbai)Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

In 2015, and an FIR had been filed in this regard. In May 2018, Dr. Tharoor was charged with abetment to suicide and marital cruelty under Sections 306 and 498A of the Indian Penal Code.Substantiating his arguments on behalf of Tharoor, Pahwa submitted that none of the family members of the deceased, Sunanda Pushkar, had ever levelled any allegations against him. In doing so, he referred to the statements of such family members.Moreover, Pahwa argued that according to some of the family members, it was submitted that Tharoor even took Pushkar to the doctors, not only in India but while they both were in France, owing to her medical conditions.Relying on the statement of Sunanda Pushkar’s son, Pahwa argued that “The only son of the deceased clearly said that Tharoor had nothing to do with the death but my friend (Prosecutor) wants to frame charges on him.”After hearing the arguments at length, the judge posted the matter for further arguments on 26th March 2021 at 2PM.On the last date of hearing, Pahwa substantiated his arguments on three major aspects: firstly, on the allegations pressed upon by the Police; secondly, oon questioning the conduct of Doctors conducting Medical Autopsy and Post Mortem and lastly, there being no definite opinion on Cause of Death made out from 2014 to 2017 according to various reports by Medical Boards.Pahwa therefore submitted before the Court that:”If you cannot establish suicide, then there can be no sec. 306 case. First you have to establish there has been a suicide. From 2014 to 2017, it has been 4 years. They have given opinion, its neither suicide nor homicide. Again a null in the investigation. Even when the report said there was no suicide, they registered a case under sec. 302. They don’t say it’s suicide. This is answer to your third category, accidental. This is accidental where there is no intention. Suicide cannot be without intent. I am not talking abetment at the moment. I am talking about suicide. For suicide there has to be intent. I am relying on medical documents relied by them. How does sec. 306 come into play?” Read Also: Sunanda Pushkar Death Case- No Conclusive Cause Of Death After 4 Years, Even Suicide Not Established: Sr. Adv.

Whitehall HR teams facing huge relocation challenge

first_imgWhitehall HR teams facing huge relocation challengeOn 23 Mar 2004 in Military, Personnel Today The relocation of 20,000 Civil Service jobs out of London and the South East– as detailed in the Lyons Report – will prove a massive challenge for HRdepartments in Whitehall. The report, backed by chancellor Gordon Brown in his Budget last week, ispart of the Government’s drive to improve efficiency and cut costs across theCivil Service. Lyons also recommends that the Civil Service needs a more co-ordinatedapproach if it is to minimise the costs and adverse impact of relocation andredundancy programmes. Mike Emmott, employee relations adviser at the Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development, predicted hard work ahead for government HR. “HR will carry the main burden of this process; it will involve massiveconsultation with staff and unions, identifying suitable locations, arrangingstaff visits, providing access to advice on schools, housing and localamenities,” he said. “The HR departments should really treat it as asort of military exercise.” David Samuell, public sector commercial director at consultancy DBM saidthat while logistic issues were important, HR would have to pay close attentionto micro-level people issues. “Staff will want to know what support mechanisms are in place to helpthem,” he said. The Public and Commercial Services union called for the Government tobalance regeneration of the regions with the need for public service jobs inLondon. The proposals come before the impact of the Gershon review of governmentefficiency – due in late April – which could see further job cuts as functionssuch as HR are standardised and shared. Emmott said the Lyons relocation plans may clash with the Gershon reviewbecause the Civil Service will require many HR professionals to manage theproject.

ARLA savages London mayor’s latest bid to control rents

first_imgLondon mayor Sadiq Khan has officially requested powers to regulate the private rented sector in the capital and issued a detailed report into its housing market.His proposals include introducing rent controls and open-ended tenancies and increasing notice periods to four months.Khan also wants to set up a city-wise register of landlords and rents and a new London Private Rent Commission to implement, monitor and enforce controls.The proposals go further than many other schemes that have been tried elsewhere including not only capping rent rises but also decreasing rents between tenancies until they become affordable.And in a somewhat contradictory move, the Mayor also says he wants to encourage investment in new and existing rental housing supply.“Unlike other Mayors around the world, I have no powers over the private rented sector,” says Khan.“That’s why this landmark report sets out a detailed blueprint of what the Government must do to overhaul tenancy laws, and what powers City Hall needs from them to bring rents down.”Industry reaction so farDavid Cox (left), Chief Executive of ARLA Propertymark, says: “Rent controls do not work; it hits hardest those it’s designed to help the most, and the Mayor of London has failed to learn the lessons of history.“The last time rent controls existed in this country, the private rented sector (PRS) shrunk to the lowest levels ever recorded.“At a time of demand for PRS homes massively outstripping supply, rent controls will cause the sector to shrink.“In turn, this means professional landlords will only take the very best tenants, and the vulnerable and low-income people that rent controls are designed to help, will be forced into the hands of rogue and criminal operators, who may exploit them.”Read the mayor’s report in full.Mayor of London rent controls Sadiq Khan July 22, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Worcester flying at top of table

first_imgWorcester 2 – 0 Wadham WORCESTER raced to a surely insurmountable lead in the Premier Division with a 2-0 home victory over second place Wadham.  The win sees Worcester establish a seven point gap at the top of the table which, based on today’s performance, they look unlikely to surrender.The importance of this match couldn’t be understated as newly-promoted Wadham represented the best chance of usurping the reigning champions. Their defeat on Wednesday, though, surely leaves Wadham’s title hopes in tatters. The visitors will rue a missed opportunity but might reflect that the scoreline was a just one in the face of a dynamic Worcester attack.Worcester kicked off but were panicked into an immediate clearance as Wadham rapidly chased the ball down. As the half wore on, however, the home side settled into a rhythm of sorts, making some incisive breaks down the right hand side. Wadham, unable to cope with Worcester’s tenacious midfield and the strength of their central defence, resorted to long balls down the left flank which, as the final score suggests, failed to make an impact. The first goal was the result of Worcester’s sustained and at times fluid attacks on Wadham’s defenders. Kunal Desai cut the visiting defence with a quick through ball, which striker Rich Adams latched onto. Making no mistake, his angled shot left the keeper flailing and put the first points on the scoreboard. Wadham hit back with one of their best attacks of the half, putting together a slick sequence of passes, although the attack fizzled out tamely near the corner flag. Wadham’s inability to penetrate their host’s well-marshalled defence highlighted the impotence of their attacking play and as was so often the case their strikers were left bereft of any real chances.The second half continued in similar vein. Although Worcester were evidently more dangerous with their incisive passing sequences, neither side were able to win outright dominance. That said, as play restarted Wadham seemed better co-ordinated, with their midfield retaining possession and showing more composure on the ball. Worcester, however, were soon back on the offensive. An hour in, Matt Sinnett’s beautifully timed run and resulting header made it 2-0 and, with clear cut chances few and far between, the mood of home the crowd was confident. With the clock running down, Desai nearly added another goal as his free kick was narrowly tipped over. Wadham nearly grabbed a consolation goal, though, when midfielder Michael Edwards’ rifling free kick was cruelly kept out by the crossbar.  Worcester’s continued dominance of this division is richly deserved.  An excellent defence is backed up by an attack boasting flair and skill in abundance. Special mention must go to Desai, Plaxton and Butts who all contributed with outstanding performances. What made Worcester so impressive was the variety of attacking options available, with Desai’s able deliveries from set play and the searing pace of their wingers stretching Wadham’s defence. The visitors do deserve plaudits for keeping Worcester out for so much of the game, and indeed their backline showed considerable composure against arguably the most potent team in the league. The more cynical observer might highlight the crunching tackles inflicted in particular on Desai and Plaxton, the former at one point having to leave the pitch. That this Wadham team was best placed to halt Worcester, yet could not score against the table leaders, highlights the champions’ dominance within this division. With no obvious weaknesses in the team, their march to  another championship title seems almost inevitable.last_img read more

BREAKING NEWS: Two EPD officers Were Injured While Attempting To Serve Two Felony Warrants

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: Two EPD officers Were Injured While Attempting To Serve Two Felony WarrantsOfficers were called to an apartment at 1108 Parrett St around 4:15 Saturday afternoon for a narcotics complaint. Officers were able to determine two people involved in the complaint had active Felony warrants for their arrests. Officers arrived and spoke with several people in the alley outside of the apartment door. While speaking with them, the door partially opened and they saw one of the wanted suspects, JOHNTAVIS MATLOCK, inside the doorway. Officers were able to remove him from the apartment and handcuff him. While officers were arresting JOHNTAVIS MATLOCK, his sister interfered with the arrest and assaulted an officer. While an officer was picking up money and a phone that JOHNTAVIS had dropped in the alley, JEANETTA JONTE MATLOCK stepped on the officer’s hand causing a laceration. Officers had already told her she could not get the items from JOHNTAVIS but she told him to drop them on the ground and kick them towards her anyway. She then assaulted the officer who was trying to pick the items up. The officer attempted to arrest her, but she began resisting arrest. She was holding a small child and refused to hand her over to a family member who was standing next to her. The officer gave several instructions for her to hand the child over to the family member, but she continued to use the child as shield to prevent the officer from taking her into custody. The family member refused to take the child. A bystander finally took the child and the officer tried to place JEANNETTA into custody. She continued to resist and struck the officer. Even after the officer got her down on the ground, she continued to resist until other officers arrived and assisted in placing her into handcuffs.While JEANETTA was fighting with the officer, JOHNTAVIS continued to be uncooperative and tried to pull away from an officer event though he was in handcuffs. At one point during the struggle, he told his sister to run from the officer.While JOHNTAVIS and JEANETTA were resisting the officers, the other person at the address who had a felony warrant came outside and tried to leave the area. SAHSHA DRAKE was carrying a car seat and tried to leave with an infant. When she was confronted by arriving officers, she also refused to give her infant to the family member. Officer took custody of the infant and took her into custody without further incident. During this portion of the incident, JOHNTAVIS lied to officers about DRAKES identity to try and help her avoid arrest.The officers received injuries from the struggle on the concrete.One officer had scratches on his neck and hand that JENAETTA caused when she assaulted him during her arrest. The second officer also suffered a sprained thumb while trying to control JOHNTAVIS. Neither officer required medical treatment at the time of the arrests.A case worker from CPS was called to the scene and the children were placed with a family member.JOHNTAVIS MATLOCK was arrested on a Felony warrant issued out of Coffee County Tennessee and Misdemeanor Resisting Arrest.JEANETTA MATLOCK was arrested for Felony Battery with Injury on a Public Safety Officer, Felony Resisting Law Enforcement, Felony Neglect of a Dependent, Disorderly Conduct, and a Misdemeanor warrant.SASHA DRAKE was arrested for her Felony warrant.For full details, view this message on the web.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Press release: Foreign Secretary call with Juan Guaido: 30 January 2019

first_img Media enquiries At the end of the call, the Foreign Secretary told Mr Guaido he was a courageous and brave man working for a brighter future for the people of Venezuela and that he would be discussing the crisis with other EU Foreign Ministers during a meeting on Thursday (31 January) in Bucharest. Mr Guaido said the meeting of EU Foreign Ministers was a very important meeting for Venezuela’s future and if Maduro did not call for new Presidential elections after the eight day deadline already announced, then it would be a time to increase the pressure on the Maduro dictatorship.

Widespread Panic Lights A Maryland Casino On Fire On First Night Outside The Nation’s Capital [Videos]

first_imgWidespread returns to the stage again tonight for the second round of wanton destruction in the shadows of D.C. See ya there, Goodpeople.You can listen to a full audio recording of the performance via PanicStream. For a full list of Widespread Panic’s upcoming tour dates, head here.Setlist: Widespread Panic | The Theater at MGM National Harbor | Oxon Hill, MD | 3/15/19Set One: A of D, Tall Boy, Bear’s Gone Fishin’, Weak Brain Narrow Mind, Greta > Jam > Better Off, Send Your Mind, Walkin’ (For Your Love), One Arm Steve (58 mins)Set Two: Big Wooly Mammoth, Walk On, All Time Low, Cotton Was King, Honky Red > Driving Song > Tickle the Truth > Papa’s Home > Climb To Safety > Jam > Driving Song > Breathing Slow, Tail Dragger (90 mins)Encore: Expiration Day, Protein Drink / Sewing Machine (17 mins) A smooth, bouncing bassline by Schools provided a foundation for the rest of the guys to build upon…and build they did. A glorious transitional jam emerged that eventually concluded the second half of “Driving Song”. An added “Breathing Slow” section completed this hearty sandwich. Closing the second set, John Bell shapeshifted into the eternal bluesman, Howlin’ Wolf, for a dirty-river-water rendition of “Taildragger.”When the band returned, Widespread Panic played the encore in tribute to their late, great friend, Vic Chestnutt. First, a heartfelt “Expiration Day” was performed by vocal expert John Bell before Widespread Panic closed the night with another Chestnutt composition, “Protein Drink / Sewing Machine”. The tune’s many breakdowns and build-ups concluded the night with aggressive fury as Duane Trucks and Dave Schools hammered the show home.“Expiration Day” The six-headed monster known as Widespread Panic reared its magnificent faces for the opening night of the first of three March weekend runs up and down the east coast. Kicking off the festivities, Widespread Panic retook Oxon Hill, Maryland—within spitting distance of the nation’s capital—to play the second annual St. Panics Day at the MGM National Harbor Casino. Just like in Las Vegas, the casino venue presented a multitude of opportunities for debauchery.Stumbling back on stage like a pack of lost dogs that finally found their way home, Widespread Panic opened the run with the instrumental “A of D” before segueing into the crowd favorite “Tall Boy” led by JoJo Hermann and John Bell sharing tandem vocal duties. “Tall Boy” made a surprise appearance before its expected place on the St. Patrick’s Day setlist on Sunday.A stoic tribute to the legendary fallen fan, Thomas” Bear” Guenther, followed with a bass-heavy “Bear’s Gone Fishin’”. Jimmy Herring—who already foreshadowed an extraordinary night ahead with his guitar work on “Tall Boy”—turned up the heat and started cooking. Returning to their Southern roots, the boys performed infamous bluesman Willie Dixon’s “Weak Brain, Narrow Mind”.JoJo introduced “Greta” to the howling audience, but it wasn’t long before Jimmy Herring took the helm and blasted through the lengthy, explosive jam. When the dust settled, only “Better Off” remained. The music came to a conclusive stop before John Bell led the band through an ecstatic cover of Van Morrison’s “Send Your Mind”. Another rare pause ensued before a scenic stroll through the original favorite “Walkin’ (For Your Love)”, JoJo playing his piano with exquisite precision. To close the first set, JoJo remained behind the wheel throughout “One Armed Steve”—his humorous account of his first show with Widespread Panic.The music stopped but the fun never stalled as those in attendance scrambled into the casino to gamble and refill their cups. Roulette wheels and slot machines spun round and round, dice were tumbled. Tables cheered when the dealer busted. Soon, the electricity in the atmosphere shifted as the local magnetic fields reversed—as has been known to happen when the boys are soon to return to the stage.Scampering back into positions, the swam of yellow rabbits was in place by the time JoJo and Dave Schools opened the second set with an evolutionary “Big Wooly Mammoth”. The rest of the band joined in for a swinging take on the dance-inducing jaunt complete with flying lighters. Schools and JoJo dominated throughout but it was Jimmy Herring that used his unholy powers to guide the musical troupe beyond “BWM” and through Neil Young’s “Walk On”. JB was slick as a snake oil salesman when he crooned the ol’ Neil’s lyrics (“I can’t tell them how to feel / Some get stoned, some get strange / But sooner or later it all gets real”).The fervent beat and honest lyrics of “All Time Low” tumbled like a barrel (“thrown from the top of a waterfall”) before a lively “Cotton Was King” featuring a phenomenal JoJo once again ramped up the pace. The badass riffs of “Honky Red” were reawakened by Herring and an emotionally wrought John Bell. A nasty, improvised jam segued into the first half of “Driving Song”, tugging on all the feels. “Tickle the Truth” from Free Somehow (2008) was devoured as an appetizer before a powerful “Papa’s Home” was perfected aloud. The resounding conclusion of “Papa’s” extended into an intergalactic jam which culminated in an uplifting version of Jerry Joseph’s “Climb to Safety.”“Climb To Safety”last_img read more

In the end, Somali famine preventable

first_imgThe United Nations declared last Friday that Somalia’s famine is over. But the official declaration means little to the millions of Somalis who are still hungry and waiting for their crops to grow, according to authorities gathered at Harvard University.“The difference between famine versus not famine for most Somalis is a distinction without a difference,” said Ken Menkhaus, professor of political science at Davidson College, whose research focuses on Somalia and the Horn of Africa.Menkhaus said it was profoundly disappointing to be discussing another Somali famine, after he worked in the country during the 1991-92 one. Each famine, he said, has distinct characteristics, and this one unfolded in slow motion over the past couple of years. That’s at least partly because the Somali diaspora sent money home that delayed the worst effects.Paul Farmer (left) speaks with Caroline Elkins prior to the opening remarks during the “Sound the Horn: Famine in the Horn of Africa” event.Menkhaus was among four experts on Somalia and famine who spoke at the Radcliffe Gym Monday evening. The event, “Sound the Horn: Famine in the Horn of Africa,” was sponsored by the Committee on African Studies, Harvard Medical School’s Program in Infectious Disease and Social Change, the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and the Harvard Undergraduate Council.The event was introduced by Paul Farmer, Kolokotrones University Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine and co-founder of the nonprofit Partners In Health. It featured opening remarks by Caroline Elkins, history professor and chair of the Committee on African Studies, and Salmaan Keshavjee, assistant professor of medicine and director of the Program on Infectious Disease and Social Change.Other speakers included Michael Delaney, director of humanitarian response for Oxfam America, William Masters, chair of the Department of Food and Nutrition Policy at Tufts University, and Robert Paarlberg, adjunct professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and a political science professor at Wellesley College.Elkins said the event was part of a University-wide effort to respond to the Somali disaster. Harvard President Drew Faust sent a message that Elkins read to the audience. Faust said the crisis deserves the world’s attention in an era when it is easier than ever to be informed about any subject, but perhaps harder to be aware of what’s important.Farmer drew on his experience treating malnourished people in Haiti, where he has worked for decades, and said the human and social context of hunger need as much attention as the patients do. A malnourished child is typically an indication of poverty at home, and aid to families should be part of treating the child, he said. Similarly, broader agricultural interventions and fair trade policies are needed to boost local agricultural economies.Though famine is often thought of as a natural disaster, Monday’s speakers said that is a false impression. Though Somalia suffered through a severe drought, with today’s instant communications, transport systems can move massive amounts of food. Given today’s global food markets, famine is too often a failure of local government and international response.“In today’s 21st-century world, just about everything about famine is man-made,” Paarlberg said. “We’re no longer in a world of man against nature.”Paarlberg’s assertion echoed that of other speakers, who pointed out that several of the most deadly famines in history occurred because of government action or inaction.“In today’s 21st-century world, just about everything about famine is man-made. We’re no longer in a world of man against nature,” said Robert Paarlberg, adjunct professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.Ethiopia, which was also affected by the recent drought, fared much better this time because of reforms implemented after the 2001 one. Likewise, Paarlberg said, northern and central Somalia, regions that fall outside of the influence of the Al-Shabaab militia, also fared better.There were several man-made features of this famine, which affected more than 10 million people and killed between 50,000 and 100,000, half of them children under age 5.The largest man-made feature was the role of the Al-Shabaab militia that rules the region and that kept food aid from reaching those in need. But the international community isn’t blameless. As early as November 2010, an international famine early warning system was predicting the failure of rains in the region, but the international community didn’t respond fully until an official famine was declared in July 2011. On top of that, U.S. anti-terrorism laws cut off food aid because Al-Shabaab, listed as a terrorist group, was taking some of it.Though the United Nations has declared the famine over, that was based on statistical measures, such as the number of people dying each day and the number of children who are malnourished. Though the official famine may be over, both U.N. officials and Monday’s speakers said the crisis continues for the people of Somalia. Almost a third of the population remains dependent on humanitarian assistance, crops growing from recent rains will take months to reach maturity, and herds of cows, goats, and other animals were greatly reduced during the crisis.Delaney warned that the world will have another chance to get its response right, because the warning signs are pointing to an impending famine in Africa’s Sahel, the arid, continent-spanning transition zone just below the Sahara Desert.last_img read more

“All is well.” In Italy, triage and lies for virus patients

first_imgAs the COVID-19 epidemic expands and the disease progresses, these beds are in increasing demand, especially because of the breathing problems the illness can bring. Every time a bed comes free, two anesthesiologists consult with a specialist in resuscitation and an internal medicine physician to decide who will occupy it.Age and pre-existing medical conditions are important factors. So is having a family.”We have to take into account whether older patients have families who can take care of them once they leave the ICU, because they will need help,” says Marco Resta, deputy head of Policlinico San Donato’s Intensive Care Unit.Even if there is no chance, he says, you have to “look a patient in the face and say, ‘All is well.’ And this lie destroys you.” The fight against death pauses every day at 1 p.m.At that time, doctors in the intensive care unit of Policlinico San Donato phone relatives of the unit’s 25 critically-ill coronavirus patients, all of whom are sedated and have tubes down their throats to breathe, to update the families. Lunchtime used to be for visiting hours at this Milan hospital. But now, as the country grapples with a coronavirus outbreak that has killed more than 2,000 people, no visitors are allowed in. And no one in Italy leaves their homes anymore.When the doctors make the calls, they try not to give false hope: They know that one out of two patients in intensive care with the disease caused by the virus is likely to die. The most devastating medical crisis in Italy since World War Two is forcing doctors, patients and their families to make decisions that Resta, a former military doctor, said he has not experienced even in war. As of Monday, 2,158 people had died and 27,980 been infected by coronavirus in Italy – the second highest number of reported cases and deaths in the world behind China.Resta says that 50% of those with COVID-19 who are accepted into intensive care units in Italy are dying, compared with a usual mortality rate of 12% to 16% in such units nationwide.Medical workers in protective suits monitor a coronavirus patient who is being transferred in an ambulance from the intensive care unit of the Gemelli Hospital to the Columbus Covid Hospital, which has been assigned as one of the new coronavirus treatment hospitals in Rome, Italy, March 16, 2020. (REUTERS/Handout/Gemelli Policlinico)Doctors have warned that northern Italy – where the universal healthcare system is ranked among the world’s most efficient – is a forerunner of crises that the disease is bringing around the world. The outbreak, which hit the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto first, has crippled the local network of hospitals, putting their intensive care units under colossal strain.Over three weeks, 1,135 people have needed intensive care in Lombardy, but the region has only 800 intensive care beds, according to Giacomo Grasselli, head of the intensive care unit at Milan’s Policlinico hospital, which is separate from San Donato. Grasselli coordinates all the state-run intensive care units across Lombardy.Such dilemmas are not new in the medical profession. When treating patients with breathing difficulties, intensive care doctors always evaluate their chance of recovery before intubation – an invasive procedure that involves inserting a tube into the mouth and down the throat and airway.But these high numbers mean doctors must choose more often, and more quickly, who deserves a greater chance of survival – a triage that is particularly wrenching in a Catholic country that does not allow assisted dying, and where the population is, according to statistics agency Eurostat, the oldest in Europe with nearly one person in four aged 65 or older.”We are not used to such drastic decisions,” says Resta, a 48-year-old anesthesiologist.A priest blesses the Columbus Clinic, where patients suffering from coronavirus disease (COVID-19) were moved from Spallanzani Hospital, in Rome, Italy March 16, 2020. (REUTERS/Remo Casilli)Take a chanceItalian doctors say that so many elderly COVID-19 patients are showing up with breathing problems, they can’t take a chance on those who have a slim hope of recovery.Alfredo Visioli was one such patient. When he was diagnosed, the 83-year old from Cremona was living a busy, active life, at home with a German shepherd, Holaf, that the family had given him. He cared for his 79-year-old wife, Ileana Scarpanti, who had suffered a stroke two years ago, said his granddaughter Marta Manfredi.At first, he only had intermittent fever, but two weeks after he was diagnosed with COVID-19, he developed pulmonary fibrosis – a disease resulting from lung tissue becoming damaged and scarred, which makes it harder and harder to breathe.Doctors in the hospital at Cremona, a town of about 73,000 in the Lombardy region, had to decide whether to intubate him to help him breathe.”They said there was no point,” said Manfredi.She would have liked to hold her grandfather’s hand, she said, while he was in a morphine-induced sleep before he died.Now Manfredi is worried about her grandmother. Ileana also caught COVID-19 and is now in the hospital, though she is responding well to a mouth respirator that is helping her breathe. No-one has told Ileana her husband is dead.Lombardy intensive care coordinator Grasselli said he believed that, so far, all patients with a reasonable chance of recovering and living an acceptable quality of life had been treated.But he added that this approach is under strain. “Previously, for some people we would have said, ‘let’s give them a chance for a few days.’ Now we have to be more stringent.”Medical workers in protective suits push an isolation stretcher in front of the Columbus Clinic, where patients suffering from coronavirus disease (COVID-19) were moved from Spallanzani Hospital, in Rome, Italy March 16, 2020. (REUTERS/Remo Casilli)Reorganized hospitalsThis triage is happening outside of hospitals, too.On Friday, the mayor of Fidenza, a city just outside the Lombardy region, shut access to the local hospital for 19 hours. It was overcrowded with COVID-19 patients and hospital staff had worked 21 days without a break. While the closure was aimed at keeping the hospital going, it meant some people “died at home,” said the mayor, Andrea Massari.The new coronavirus first appeared in Italy in January, but the outbreak took off in February in the small town of Codogno, around 60 km southeast of Milan. Some medical experts believe it may have been introduced by someone who travelled to Italy from Germany.Rome moved quickly to isolate the north of the country, at first locking down 10 towns in Lombardy and one in Veneto. But that didn’t stop the virus. Within a week, 888 people had tested positive for the disease and 21 had died. Cases grew exponentially. Small towns were hit first, putting an immediate strain on small hospitals.Since last week, Italy has entered complete self-isolation. It has closed all schools, offices and services and ordered everyone without a compelling and authorized reason to stay home. The measures, which are being followed by other European countries, are aimed at stopping the spread of the virus.Italy’s authorities are particularly anxious to slow its onset in southern Italy, which has a far less well-funded system than the north.Private hospitals are usually reserved for paying patients. But the government has ordered them to offer free medical care to COVID-19 sufferers. Policlinico San Donato, which is privately held but licensed to work with public sector clients, dispatched teams of anesthesiologists and other specialists to the worst-affected towns. Fourth and fifth-year medical students were called into hospitals to help. Cardiologists were enlisted to help in emergency rooms and COVID-19 wards.Now, nearly all operating rooms in the Lombardy region have been converted into intensive care units, said Grasselli, the intensive-care coordinator. Hospital staff work overtime. Some are substituting for infected colleagues. Patients are being transferred across regions.According to Grasselli, the ratio of nurses to patients in the region’s intensive care units is normally one to two. Now, it’s one nurse for every four or five patients. “We have totally reorganized our hospital system,” he says.A patient is seen sitting inside the Spedali Civili hospital in Brescia, Italy March 13, 2020. ( REUTERS/Flavio Lo Scalzo)‘Greater life expectancy’All infected people who arrive at a hospital struggling to breathe receive oxygen, Grasselli says. The issue is to what extent – and for how long – to keep them artificially respirated.Those with lighter breathing problems are connected to an external machine with a mask or, if the patient doesn’t respond, a face-covering helmet. If their condition deteriorates, doctors must decide whether to admit them to intensive care, where they would be intubated.But there’s a problem: Intubating can be taxing on the body, especially for older patients, says Grasselli. Even if elderly people survive, many can develop other problems, like trouble walking or cognitive difficulties. Even so in the past, doctors tended to try intubating even older patients, generally because they had the resources to do so, he said – adding that he would never intubate his 84-year old father.Before the coronavirus broke, “we more often had the luxury to try to intubate patients who were at the limit,” said Mario Riccio, head of anesthesiology at the Oglio Po hospital near Cremona.Now that’s changed. Italy’s Association of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care published new guidelines on March 7. Because it expects a “huge imbalance” between the clinical needs of the population and intensive care resources over the next few weeks, it told those on the front lines: Give priority to those with “greater life expectancy.”Men in protective masks transport a coffin of a person who died from coronavirus disease (COVID-19), into a cemetery in Bergamo, Italy March 16, 2020. (REUTERS/Flavio Lo Scalzo)‘Let me die at home’Italy’s mass quarantining of its population adds emotional stresses to the suffering. Family members are not allowed to travel in ambulances with relatives, and coronavirus units are closed off to anyone who is not a doctor or a patient.Some patients who are not at the point of needing intensive care feel imprisoned in overrun wards.”Take me away from here. Let me die at home. I want to see you one more time,” Stefano Bollani, a 55-year-old warehouse worker texted his homemaker wife, Tiziana Salvi, from the pre-intensive care unit of Policlinico San Donato, where he is being treated for pneumonia after contracting the virus.The couple have not seen each other since she dropped him off in their car outside the Milan hospital nearly two weeks ago. All she knows, she says, is that his condition seems to have improved in recent days. “These are things a husband shouldn’t (have to) write to a wife who is outside, who can’t see him,” she adds.And some older patients have resisted going to hospital. Carlo Bertolini, a 76-year-old agronomist in Cremona who had made a name for himself locally with a detailed history of the town’s past vineyards and taverns, was initially very reluctant to seek help, his daughter said.Bertolini, who lived alone, started feeling sick at the beginning of March. Eventually, his best friend called an ambulance, which took him to the town hospital. When he spoke to his daughter on the phone from the hospital, he described the huge numbers of patients and the cacophony of the ward. “I feel like I’m in a war,” he said, according to his daughter, Mara Bertolini.Carlo was then transferred to the intensive care unit of a bigger hospital in Milan. Mara and her sister were able to visit dressed in hazmat gear – masks, gloves, white coat – to look at him through the window of the intensive care unit. “They told us he was the one with the most serious condition in the ICU,” she said.A man plays the guitar and sings from a balcony to raise morale on the sixth day of an unprecedented lockdown across of all Italy imposed to slow the outbreak of coronavirus in Milan, Italy March 15, 2020. ( REUTERS/Daniele Mascolo)‘Stay home’The former military doctor Resta says the situation in Lombardy feels worse than the 1999 war in Kosovo, where he served in the air rescue team flying patients from Albania to Italy.Whenever a patient with coronavirus is accepted into his hospital, he says, the staff write an email to their relatives assuring them that their loved ones will be treated “like family.” He says the hospital is trying to activate a system of video-conferencing, so that patients can see their relatives during the 1 p.m. call.A doctor, not a relative, is often inevitably the last person a dying COVID-19 patient will see. Loved ones can’t even approach coffins for fear of catching the virus.The last Mara Bertolini heard of her father Carlo, the wine historian, was when someone from the morgue called another family member to say they had his body.She holds no grudge against the hard-worked doctors, she said.What struck her most about her father’s last week of anguish was the look on the doctor’s face when she met him.”I couldn’t tell whether it was worry or sadness,” she said.”All he said to us was, ‘Stay home.'”center_img Topics :last_img read more

Miley Cyrus and the ‘pornification’ of America

first_imgJohn W Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute“In a market that sells high heels for babies and thongs for tweens, it doesn’t take a genius to see that sex, if not porn, has invaded our lives. Whether we welcome it or not, television brings it into our living rooms and the Web brings it into our bedrooms.” – Jessica Bennett, “The Pornification of a Generation” There’s a strange irony to the fact that on the same week of the 93rd anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a milestone achievement for the women’s suffrage movement which resulted in women finally being able to vote, the headlines are dominated by the antics of pop star Miley Cyrus, who used this year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) as a forum for twerking, gyrating, stripping and other sexually defiant acts. Curiously enough, apart from concerns about Cyrus’ questionable taste in dance moves, no one else seems to find this convergence the least bit jarring or incongruent. Welcome to the pornification of American culture, served up MTV-style.….One reporter noted that 20-year-old Cyrus’ performance at the Video Music Awards, which started with the former Disney teen idol doing a burlesque routine with oversized teddy bears and ended with her using a foam finger to imitate having sex with herself and the audience, “left Gaga in the dust with her gratuitous show of both skin and gesturing this year.” It’s a sorry coming-of-age declaration from a girl who, for most of her life, has been America’s little darling, the star of Disney’s Hannah Montana and a self-avowed Christian who reportedly wore a purity ring as a testament to her virginity.…”Pop culture and porn culture have become part of the same seamless continuum,” explains theatre historian and University of Illinois professor Mardia Bishop. “As these images become pervasive in popular culture, they become normalized… and… accepted.” This foray into porn culture – the increasing acceptability and pervasiveness of sexualized imagery in mainstream media – is where pop culture takes a dark turn.http://mychristiandaily.com/index.php/feature/7442-miley-cyrus-and-the-pornification-of-americalast_img read more

Remembering Mike Douglas

first_img Share Share 46 Views   no discussions Photo credit: thedominican.netA man known for his scintillating oratory, rescuing Ross University, rebuilding the Labour Party and championing the struggles of the poor and downtrodden.The milestone of the 20th anniversary of his death (April, 30th 2012), is an opportunity to reflect on the life of Mike Douglas, a man who will long be remembered for his scintillating oratory; his role in rescuing Ross University; his struggles for the poor and downtrodden and his mission to revitalize the forces of Labour following the Freedom party landslide of 1980. Mike was a faithful son, father and national hero. His efforts would have gone nowhere, but for the rock solid love and nurturing of his wife, Olive “Nurse” Douglas who served the poor and the sick with great compassion and skill, while her husband exercised a brand of mesmerizing political wizardry. Though political life can be bruising on any family construct, he loved all his children and gave them the best he had: an example of a Dominican patriot.Mike Douglas was the most brilliant debater of his generation. The book In Search of Eden by Gabriel Christian and Irvin Andre sums it up best: “Mike’s oratory exuded the persuasive logic of [his father] R.B. Douglas; the irrepressible wit of John Showline; the bravado of A.B. Hector; the assertiveness of John Royer and the nonchalance of Isaiah John.” His superb oratory was most in evidence in parliament during the 1980-85 period when -singlehandedly and fearlessly – he took the fight to the Freedom Party Government when the Labour party was at its weakest. Mike was also a brilliant platform speaker. His presentations combined serious issues with humour in English and Creole. In the campaign for the 1975 General Election, Mike taunted the opposition: “We shall confound their politics, frustrate their dirty tricks and give them endless licks.” Mike served with distinction in cabinet, promoting the sale of Dominica’s citrus to the UK, with his “Grapefruit the Great Fruit” campaign. A graduate in production engineering during his sojourn in the UK, and a competent technocrat, his stints in the Ministries of Agriculture, Communications and Works and Finance were well regarded. Following his dismissal as a Minister in the Patrick John Government in 1978, he held 40 meetings across Dominica where he exposed the corrupt and dishonest activities of the Patrick John/Leo Austin dictatorship and the lack of democracy within the Labour Party and cabinet. Mike was also at the forefront of the campaign to force the John Government to cancel the Free Port Agreement, an arrangement that wouldhave created a state within a state with the investors having their own police force, port facilities and utility arrangements. Having served with honour in the Royal Air Force in trouble spots such as Cyprus and Aden, he brought his wisdom to the table during the tumult following the bloody events of May 29, 1979. His stalwart support for a constitutional settlement to the crisis via the Committee of National Salvation ensured that the rule of law, not brute force, became the mark of governance in Dominica. His diplomacy after that divisive crisis was such that he was able to weld the Dominican left into the fold of the old Labour Party. He championed the struggles of the working class of Dominica and was on the side of banana famers, lighter men, women banana carriers, students, the homeless and the unemployed. He continued the relationship with Cuba, started by the Popular Independence Committees of Rosie Douglas, and so allowed for the scholarship programme with that country to flourish.Though an opponent of the Freedom Party administration of Eugenia Charles, he urged the disclosure by AlgieMaffie of the 1981 Operation Red Dog mercenary plot. That scheme to invade Dominica and topple the island’s government by US Nazi Party and KKK sympathizers was thwarted. But for the wise intervention of Mike, Rosie and Maffie, many Dominicans would have lost their lives.Championing the vision of a reconstituted Dominica Labour Party from the mid-1980s, Mike diligently laid the structure for a disciplined party with a strong focus on good governance and transparency. He believed that Dominicans should control the natural resources of the state; that every Dominican should own a piece of the “rock.” In his last interview, though stricken with cancer, he called on Dominicans with these words: “Pa quitayyoporDomnikhodnou!“[Don’t let them take Dominica from us]. The Labour Party’s present constitution which describes the Labour party as a Democratic Socialist organization was largely the work of Mike. He identified a committed team of players who worked tirelessly towards the eventual goal of victory at the polls, achieved finally in January, 2000. Mike unambiguously outlined the foreign policy position of the Labour party. At the party’s convention in 1986 he quoted from his party’s constitution which states that the party will “follow an independent policy of non-alignment and resist becoming a satellite of other nations.” Referring to the United States, Britain, Cuba and the Soviet Union, Mike concluded: “But we shall not become a toy of any one of them or a puppet of anyone of them.”Mike passionately believed that every Dominican, irrespective of their background should be given the opportunity to succeed and promoted the socio-economic fairness concept “All Shall Eat”. In an address to labourities at Portsmouth in 1986, he said: “Not some shall eat but ‘All Shall Eat’.”Though he lost two general elections as leader of the Labour party, in 1985 and 1990, in the town of Portsmouth, Mike was unbeatable. He first won the Portsmouth seat in the March 1975 General Elections. He famously beat Charles Savarin in three consecutive general elections with increased majorities at each election. It was Mike Douglas who very early saw the economic potential of Ross University. He rescued the struggling institution at Castaways and persuaded Robert Ross to move the School to Portsmouth. Leading figures in the Freedom Party Government including the Minister for Health and senior medical professionals in Dominica did not see Ross University at that time as a legitimate medical institution.Mike was instrumental in making it possible for Ross University to establish itself at Picard. In his contribution to the debate on the 1980-1981 Budget Address, Mike stated: “Ross University spells economic development to the people of Portsmouth.” Today Ross University is the largest offshore medical school in the world employing several hundred Dominicans. The role of Mike in securing land in Chance for housing expansion in the Town of Portsmouth must also be revisited. It was Mike as a Minister of Government who ensured that 35 acres of land at Sugar Loaf Estate was acquired.Mike encouraged poor landless people to move into Chance. An abiding memory of Mike Douglas was when he stood in front of bulldozers and the police to prevent the removal of homeless persons who he had encouraged to squat on state lands in Chance from being evicted.In the end the Freedom Party government retreated. This was to mark the beginning of the mass movement of people into Chance. Mike Douglas was part of the multi-party negotiating team that travelled to London in 1977 to hold discussions on crafting the post-independence constitution for Dominica. Along with Rosie and the Popular Independence Committees, he supported and campaigned for political independence for Dominica. On this the 20th anniversary of his death, the contribution of Mike Douglas should command our attention. Apart from his tangible achievements, Mike also possessed very important qualities. He was a man of self-confidence, keen intellect, and the team ethic. He was also humble enough to listen to the man on the ground. He was accessible and kind. He abhorred arrogance and accepted constructive criticism. His brand of political activism shunned personal hatred, blind allegiance to party over country, or the cult of political idolatry. When asked what he wanted his legacy to be, he said: “to make Dominica a place where every man and woman possesses the tools to earn a decent living.”His style of leadership and the value system he espoused should be elevated to the forefront of discussion and debate. His being made for a better Dominica; his service was not in vain. May we always remember him.

Raheem Sterling focus

first_img Starting on the left side of City’s attack, Sterling had few opportunities to get into the area in the first half but really should have scored when Fernandinho played a first-time pass to set him on his way five minutes before the break. However Sterling looked hesitant and tried to place his shot too close to Boaz Myhill. That was one of only two real sights at goal, with the other a shot straight at Myhill from a tight angle early in the second half, and he was replaced by Samir Nasri with City 3-0 up after 74 minutes. TEAMWORK City’s tendency to camp in West Brom’s final third and try to patiently break down the defence left little space for Sterling to exploit his pace. He linked up nicely with David Silva a few times but struggled to find a way through the deep-lying defence. He looked like a man still trying to find his exact role in City’s evolving attack, although this was far from the finished article all around with Sergio Aguero starting the evening on the bench. CROWD REACTION The West Brom crowd booed his every touch in the first half – before switching their attention to referee Mike Dean after the break – but that only encouraged the City fans to get behind their new man. OVERALL It was a fairly subdued debut for Sterling, who had one golden chance to crown it with a goal but otherwise operated as no more than a competent cog in a City machine which was operating very nicely indeed in the opening game of the season. Press Association Here, Press Association Sport assess whether Raheem Sterling began to repay any of his £49million transfer fee in the 3-0 City win at The Hawthorns.

Volleyball: Wisconsin looks to bounce back on road

first_imgWisconsin has been here before.After dropping last year’s Big Ten opener against Penn State, the Wisconsin volleyball team railed off 19 wins in a row to claim the Big Ten title. That is the task they now have in front of them.After falling to the Nittany Lions in three sets on Wednesday, the team will look to regroup and get their first Big Ten win of the season against a team they have enjoyed success against over the past few years.No. 16 Wisconsin (8-3, 0-1 Big Ten) will enter Friday’s match against no. 12 Ohio State (11-2, 0-1 Big Ten) riding a four-game win streak against the Buckeyes, dating back to the 2013 season, and will look to extend their consecutive sets streak against the Buckeyes to 12 after sweeping both of last year’s matches.Head coach Kelly Sheffield knows that in order for the Badgers to continue their sustained success throughout the Big Ten, they are going to have to improve their hitting percentage after they had 39 kills and 18 errors on 107 total attempts against a stout Nittany Lion front line.Sheffield also knows that the season is just getting under way and wants to make sure his Badgers are rounding into mid-season form sooner rather than later.“Our ceiling is getting a little higher with some players,” Sheffield said. “I have been changing things around quite a bit to try and figure out how these pieces are going to fit. Once the coaching staff gets out of the way and lets them go, I think we will probably have a chance of being pretty good.”The Badgers come into the match facing a Buckeye squad off to a scorching start after railing off 11 consecutive wins before losing a five-set thriller to Minnesota Wednesday.The Buckeyes know they can count on a strong home court advantage when they take the court Friday, as they have come out on top in 70 percent of their matches played at the St. Johns Arena.Sheffield knows that every Big Ten battle will be a dog fight and said that as last year’s champions, the Badgers better be ready to bring it every time they step onto the court.“It’s hard to put your finger on too many teams that aren’t better than what they’ve been last year or the year before,” Sheffield said. “This conference returns a lot of talent and it’s a lot of coaches that have been here as well.”last_img read more

NBA Finals 2019: 3 reasons why the Raptors beat the Warriors

first_imgThe Raptors are NBA champions.Toronto closed out the Warriors with a 114-110 win at Oracle Arena on Thursday in Game 6 of the Finals to win their first title in franchise history. Toronto held Golden State to 110 points or less in all six games. Even without Durant for almost the entire series and a hobbled Thompson, the Warriors still had star Stephen Curry. The Raptors, however, held him in check and shut down Golden State’s role players, for the most part.The Raptors’ defense kept them in every matchup against the Warriors, which is a big reason why the Larry O’Brien Trophy is heading to Toronto. Here’s three reasons why the Raptors won the 2019 NBA FinalsWarriors, Raptors healthThe Raptors had a fantastic postseason run and no doubt earned the title. The Warriors’ health, however, definitely played a factor in the final series.Kevin Durant strained his calf in Golden State’s second round series against the Rockets and did not play again until Game 5 against the Raptors. But, his return lasted less than a half as he unfortunately ruptured his Achilles after 12 minutes on the floor. That wasn’t all the injuries the Warriors dealt with in the Finals, though. Thompson was held out of Game 3 with a hamstring issue and left Thursday’s matchup. DeMarcus Cousins was inconsistent as he continued to recover from a torn quad and Kevon Looney was banged up, as well.Toronto, on the other hand, had all of its players available and had significantly better depth than Golden State. That made a difference.Kawhi Leonard’s playKawhi Leonard was the best player in the 2019 playoffs and it wasn’t even that close.The 27-year-old star almost single-handedly carried the Raptors to the first title in franchise history. The team went to him time and again for clutch buckets and he delivered. He even knocked down one of the biggest shots in franchise history: a crazy bouncing buzzer beater in the fourth quarter of Game 7 against the 76ers in the second round.KAWHI CALLED SERIES! pic.twitter.com/V4AIuMULNO— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) May 13, 2019The Raptors acquired Leonard — along with Danny Green — from the Spurs in exchange for a package centered around DeMar DeRozan in a blockbuster trade last offseason. Leonard is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent later this month.Regardless of what happens this summer, that deal will go down as one of the best in Raptors’ history and Leonard will always be remembered in Toronto.Raptors’ defensive effortThe Raptors limited the Warriors’ offense throughout the series. Kyle Lowry scored 26 points to lead the Raptors to the victory while Pascal Siakam chipped in 26, as well. Klay Thompson finished with 30 points in the losing effort, but left in the third quarter with a knee injury.The Warriors were going for their third straight championship and fourth in the last five seasons. They came up just short.

Boyd now will be under contract through the 2023 season.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 23, 2019The extension will keep Boyd with the Bengals until 2023.

Blansett trial opens this afternoon after completion of jury process

first_img(Wednesday, 2:45 p.m.) by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — A nine man five woman jury has heard opening statements and testimony of seven witnesses so far in the murder trial of Lindsey Nicole Blansett, accused of murdering her 10-year-old son, Caleb.The state of Kansas is slowly building its case against Blansett, who is facing two felonies of premeditated murder and aggravated assault after being accused of using a rock and knife multiple times to fatally wound her son, Caleb, a Wellington Lincoln Elementary student while he was allegedly sleeping late in the evening last December.Sumner County attorney Kerwin Spencer opened the trial describing the night of the alleged murder. In his 15-minute presentation, he described Blansett as a woman who had planned out the murder of her child. Blansett’s defense attorney Michael Brown then presented his opening statement to the jury describing the hardship that his client had leading up to the alleged incident.“At the end of day, you the jury, have to wrestle with the question, ‘why would someone in their right mind do this to a child?’,” Brown said.Witnesses from the Wellington Police Department, 911 dispatch office and the Sedgwick Forensics Specialists then presented testimony. Eleven pictures of Caleb’s injuries which he allegedly incurred during the Dec. 14, 2014 incident, were presented to the jury on a projection screen.The prosecution is about to present the 911 tape to the jury. Audio problems to amplify the 911 tape content has caused a delay in the proceedings.Earlier in the day, a jury was announced at 11:30 a.m. consisting of nine men and five women. The jury selection process took nearly a day and a half with more than 40 prospective jurors interviewed. The trial started at 1:30 p.m. today. Testimony will continue until later this afternoon.Blansett dressed in a brown sweater with blue-green plaid dress has been in attendance for the jury selection and proceeding. She has remained stoic through the proceedings thus far.last_img read more

first_imgMedvedev won 12 of the last 14 points in the second set to square the match against Djokovic, then ran up a 3-1 lead in the third on the way to victory on his first match point.– Kuznetsova beats Barty –There was an upset in the women’s draw as well, as Russian veteran Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated top-seeded Australian Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 6-4.Kuznetsova, a two-time Grand Slam champion who has been hindered lately by injury, will be in search of her 19th WTA title — and her first in more than a year — when she takes on American Madison Keys in the final. Keys, the 2017 US Open runner-up, defeated compatriot Sofia Kenin 7-5, 6-4.Kuznetsova denied Barty a chance to reclaim the world number one ranking, which the Australian would have done by reaching the final.Instead the triumph by 34-year-old Kuznetsova leaves injured Naomi Osaka atop the rankings with the US Open looming.Barty, who had rallied from a set down in each of her previous two matches, also said she was taking positives from the week to Flushing Meadows.“This was a week that I battled through,” Barty said. “At times I played some good stuff. At times I played some pretty awful stuff.“I’ve learned a lot from this week, and there are nothing but positives going into New York,” she said.Keys booked her finals spot as she won an all-American match littered with 12 breaks of serve.amazed herself with the get. “I looked at my box in shock,” she admitted. “I’m really feeling great about my tennis.Share on: WhatsApp World number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia congratulates Daniil Medvedev after falling to the Russian in the semi-finals of the ATP Cincinnati MastersCincinnati, United States | AFP | World number one Novak Djokovic wilted under pressure from Daniil Medvedev Saturday, falling 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 to the ninth-seeded Russian in the Cincinnati Masters semi-finals.Medvedev’s upset win sent him into a title showdown with another unexpected finalist, 16th-seeded Belgian David Goffin, who defeated France’s Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-4 to reach his first ATP Masters 1000 final.A fuming Djokovic, who looked to have control of the contest in the early going, was caught out when Medvedev stepped things up in the second set.“I don’t know how I turned it around, I was so tired after the first set and I thought I might not be able to keep up the intensity,” said Medvedev, who has competed in 15 hardcourt matches since July 30.“But I had a momentum chance in the second set and the crowd gave me energy,” added the Russian, who will be playing his second Masters series final in eight days, after falling to Rafael Nadal in Montreal last Sunday.“Novak had been destroying me on second serve, so I just went for it,” Medvedev said. “It’s a great feeling to win and beat the number one.”Djokovic, the defending champion who was playing his first tournament since his Wimbledon triumph in July, need some time to cool down before pondering his loss.“He deserves to be in the mix, certainly, with all his results,” Djokovic said. “He’s working his way to top 5. “He’s definitely one of the best players in the world at this moment.”Djokovic said there was little he could do in the face of Medvedev’s go-for-broke style.“When I had my racquet on the ball I was returning also his serves, but you can’t really predict someone or prepare yourself for someone serving that big second serve consistently from 4-3 to the end of the match with making maybe two double faults out of God knows how many serves,” he said.With the US Open starting on August 26, Djokovic said he took “mostly positives” from the week.“Today I did lose a tennis match, but I didn’t do too much wrong,” he said. “So I’ll take that and I’ll move forward to New York and have a good practice week.“I’m going to go to fight for a title as everyone else does — and I like my chances.”last_img read more

59 residents displaced, remain in shelters

first_imgRegion 9 flood aftermath…environmental health personnel offering guidance – CDC HeadBy Shemuel FanfairThough the floodwaters in sections of Lethem and surrounding areas have largely receded, the 59 residents who were evacuated from their homes for safety reasons remain in shelters after nearly two weeks.The flood situation reached a worrying level when several persons were evacuated from their homes in Region Nine almost two weeks ago (file photo)This was confirmed by both Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) Vice Chairman Karl Singh and acting Head of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig – who related to Guyana Times on Sunday that the affected areas were being monitored.While it is not clear when the various households will be able to return to their places of abode, Vice Chairman Singh stated that the residents were being allowed to clean their surroundings.“Persons are in the shelter as of today [Sunday]; we are still monitoring the situation. We have cleaning agents, including Jeyes fluid, to give to the affected people to clean their homes and disinfect the surrounding areas before they can go back home,” Singh told this publication.Meanwhile, Lieutenant Colonel Craig told this newspaper that as the water around Lethem has been receding, there have been no reports of disease outbreak.“There are no outbreaks; what we try to do is use preventative measures such as bleach in water and water purification tablets…we monitor the situation continuously and we are in contact with the regional administration under the regional disaster risk management system,” Craig pointed out.He also informed that the Public Health Ministry has a team targeting the affected areas with community outreaches by its environmental health personnel who have been providing guidance on the necessary measures persons can take to prevent diseases.Meanwhile, additional flooding remains a cause for worry since the water level could rise again with another heavy downpour. The affected areas included Deep South Rupununi communities such as Karasabai, which was cut off from Central Lethem.Regional Chairman Brian Allicock noted earlier this month that a group of Toshaos had travelled into the area via boat, using a different route.It was reported several days ago that Deep South Rupununi’s main access road en-route to Aishalton was partly washed away.Food security is another concern that was recorded since the floods in the Deep South had also destroyed farms. Regional Chairman Allicock noted in early July that some 20 farms were inundated with over three feet of water.The flooding was caused by several rivers, particularly the Takutu River, overtopping because of heavy rainfall in the region and over in neighbouring Brazil, which had resulted in overtopping of the Rio Brancho River. The CDC had delivered supplies which included water purification tablets, collapsible bottles, detergents and other cleaning supplies, beddings and blankets, among other materials.last_img read more

Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 18- Before he departs for his Bangladesh sojourn, AFC Leopards interim coach Dennis Kitambi will assist incoming boss Rodolfo Zapata in picking his assistant coach with the Argentine expected in the country this week.AFC settled on Zapata after combing through over 20 CVs and according to Chairman Dan Mule, they have faith that the South American’s experience in the continent will be vital in assisting the team win the Kenyan Premier League title for the first time in 20 years. “He has worked in Nigeria, South Africa and Botswana and we were convinced that having been in the continent for so long, he has enough experience. We have carefully examined his CV and we believe his credentials are good enough,” AFC leopards boss Dan Mule told Capital Sport.“When he arrives later this week we will have a meeting with him where we will lay out our plans and ambitions as a club and outline his targets. He will have time with Kitambi and learn a few things as a club and also get advise on who best to pick as assistant coach,” Mule further stated.Zapata will be AFC’s 14th coach in four years but Mule hopes that his arrival will reduce the huge turnover of coaches.Kitambi is set to leave the club on May 8 heading to Bangladesh to undertake coaching course as well as work as Stewart Hall’s assistant at Saif Sporting Club.“Kitambi has done really well for us and we appreciate his role. He stepped in at a crucial time and helped us stabilize the club,” Mule said, paying tribute to the Tanzanian.AFC are currently third in the Kenyan Premier League standings with 18 points, five off leaders Mathare United but with one match at hand.The 51-year old Zapata is currently coaching Botswana top flight side Gaborone United who are placed fifth in their league.Majority of his experience has been in the United States where he has worked with the United States Youth Soccer Academy as well as the Alberta Soccer Association in Canada.In Africa, he first worked in Nigeria where he coached Sunshine FC in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) in 2010 helping them to qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup in 2011.He then moved on to South Africa for the 2011 and 2012 seasons with Mpumalanga Black Aces. Zapata joined Gaborone in 2016 after a stint in the USA where he has worked to date.Zapata started out as a player in the Argentinian 2nd division.

GOVERNMENT U-TURN WILL SEE FILIPINO FISHERMEN GET WORK PERMITS

first_imgRichard Bruton, centre, has finally realised he got it all wrong on fishing crewsJUST days after Richard Bruton ruled out work permits for foreign national fishermen, the Government is expected to do a u-turn and finally recognise the contribution they make to the industry here.In Donegal there has been a tradition of Filipino fishermen working on some of our boats, but many are here illegally.The Government turned a blind eye to this – until allegations that some fishermen were being exploited by boat skippers in southern and eastern counties were made in a London newspaper. Fishermen’s leaders in Killybegs have vowed to help stamp out any exploitation – but insist they cannot get Irish crews for some fishing vessels.And that’s why foreign national crew members are often needed on some boats.It’s understood a work permit system will be introduced. It will ensure the rights of the workers – and the viability of the boats.Representatives from the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland were joined by a Filipino fisherman who has worked undocumented in Ireland for the last five years, addressed the new interdepartmental taskforce last night. Speaking following the meeting, Edel McGinley, MRCI Director said: “Regularisation would be an important step to tackle exploitation in the fishing industry and strengthen workers’ rights.“Unfortunately, this issue is not confined to the fishing industry but persists across many low wage sectors such as domestic work, care work and the restaurant industry.”The MRCI welcomed reported moves by Minister for Agriculture Food and the Marine Simon Coveney and the Minister for Justice and Equality Frances Fitzgerald to regularise undocumented migrant fisherman. To comprehensively tackle this abuse of workers, the MRCI is calling for the introduction of a broader regularisation scheme to address exploitation in all precarious sectors of the Irish labour market.Ms McGinley went on say “Like the Irish undocumented in the USA, undocumented migrants are part of the fabric of Irish life, many working and living in our communities long term – some for over fifteen years. Clearly there is a need for a broad-based regularisation which complements the sectoral approach being proposed.”At the meeting with the Taskforce, the MRCI made a number of recommendations: Introduce a sector-based regularisation with clear criteria, granting access to employment in the fishing industry without a work permitEstablish a sectoral agreement for the fishing industry,setting out terms and conditions for workersSuspend the practice of spot checks targeting vulnerable workers, pending the introduction of a regularisationInvest greater resources to step up inspections and ensure compliance in the sectorAllocate resources through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to focus on the protection of workers in the industryRatify ILO Work in Fishing Convention 188Conduct intelligence-led investigations into human trafficking routes and recruitment practicesIntroduce a system for swift identificationof and protection for victims of traffickingGOVERNMENT U-TURN WILL SEE FILIPINO FISHERMEN GET WORK PERMITS was last modified: November 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalFishinglast_img read more

McCain seeks program to teach ‘strategic interrogation’

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champ“I do not know whether they’ve been involved in torture because I don’t have that kind of information,” McCain said. “I do know that when tapes are destroyed of interrogations, it contributes enormously to the cynicism, the skepticism, and also is further damaging to the image of the United States of America in the world.” The CIA recently acknowledged that in 2005 it destroyed videotapes made three years earlier of the CIA’s interrogations of two terror suspects. The tapes were made to document how CIA officers used new, harsh questioning techniques approved by the White House to force recalcitrant prisoners to talk. Intelligence officials have said the methods that were shown on the videotapes included waterboarding, an interrogation tactic that causes the sensation of drowning and is banned by the Pentagon. McCain also said he met with a “high-ranking member of al-Qaida in Iraq” who told him that post-invasion lawlessness and images of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib helped recruit insurgents. The latter was “a great recruitment tool,” McCain said. “He said it and I believe it.” He also said he’d go after terrorists with a new military force. “I’ll set up a new agency patterned after the old Office of Strategic Services that will be a small, nimble, can-do organization that will fight” terrorists anywhere in the world and on the Internet, McCain said. COLUMBIA, S.C. – Republican White House hopeful John McCain said he wants “a crash program” in civilian and military schools that emphasizes language and creates a “new specialty in strategic interrogation” so the nation never feels the need for torture. McCain, a former Vietnam prisoner of war who suffered mistreatment, talked about the new proposal at a Columbia campaign stop Saturday. McCain said he wanted to create an Army Advisory Corps of 20,000 soldiers to act as military advisers and a new Office of Strategic Services to fight terrorists. He said he wanted them to pursue “a crash program in civilian and military schools” to prepare more experienced speakers in strategically important languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Farsi and others, and to “create a new specialty in strategic interrogation – a new group of strategic interrogators so that we never have to feel motivated to torture anyone ever again.” When asked if he knew whether U.S. forces had engaged in torture in the past, the Arizona senator said he didn’t. Later, at Newberry College’s commencement ceremony about an hour away, McCain talked about the response to torture being a measure of character.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arthur Bloom, 63, of CBS

first_imgNEW YORK – Television news director Arthur Bloom, who helped found the newsmagazine “60 Minutes” and donated his stopwatch to create the show’s iconic ticking image, died Saturday of cancer. He was 63. Bloom, who joined CBS in its mailroom when he was 18, died at his home in Grandview-on-Hudson, N.Y., the network said. Besides his 38 years with “60 Minutes,” Bloom helped train Dan Rather to succeed Walter Cronkite in the CBS News anchor chair in 1981. Rather and Cronkite hailed Bloom’s work. “Artie Bloom was the most accomplished director of television news programs in history,” Rather said. “The record shows he was the best.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Bloom’s talent and humor “were the very spirit of CBS News,” Cronkite said. “It is difficult to think of our craft without him,” he said. During his 45-year career at CBS, Bloom was instrumental in the network’s political coverage. He directed work on the conventions for both parties from 1976 to 1988, the Ford-Carter and Reagan-Mondale presidential debates, and every election night from 1974 to 1990. In 1995, he received the Directors Guild of America’s first Lifetime Achievement Award. “60 Minutes” has captured 78 Emmy Awards and 11 Peabody Awards. Bloom was there for the launch of “60 Minutes” in 1968. It was on the show’s third edition that it was introduced with the now-famous ticking stopwatch. “Artie had an eye for what worked visually and what didn’t,” said “60 Minutes” creator Don Hewitt. “He was invaluable to me.” The Manhattan native began directing at age 21 with WCBS-TV, the local New York station. In 1966, he joined CBS news and two years later was directing “60 Minutes.” Survivors include his wife of 40 years, Marla; a son, Scott; a daughter, Jill Bloom Butterman; a brother, Richard; and four grandchildren. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The club would urge as many supporters to come out and support this team on Friday night.UNDERAGEThe under 12 played are at home to Burt at 6.30 on Tuesday. In the Darren Downey and Gary Mc Laughlin Northern Board under 16 league on Friday night Malin had a hard earned win away to Moville. A man of the match performance by stand in goalkeeper Joe Doherty (Hegarty) was the key difference between the two teams in the end. Joe replaced goalkeeper Callum Harley as he was injured during the warm-up. Joe Doherty’s excellent skills denied Moville time after time in the first half the goal their attacking play deserved. Malin’s forward line and midfield continued to find their target with ease giving them a cushion at half time of 3-8 to 1-5. The Malin goals came from corner forward Andrew Mc Daid (1-1) and midfielder Ciarán Doherty JR (2 -0) both of which came from runs from within his own half. Points were scored by Ciarán Doherty (D) (0-3), Conor Mc Geoghegan (0-2), Joe Doherty PM (0-1) and Seán O Neill (0-1). The second half was a tight affair with the home side dominating for long periods and gradually reducing Malin’s lead but two points from midfielder Daniel Houten midway through the half, one from Conór Bambrick and a pointed free from Joe Doherty (PM) prevented Moville from bridging the gap and Malin held on to record a two point win. Best for Malin were Joe Doherty (H), Robert Boggs, Séan O’Neill, Ciarán Doherty (JR), Daniel Houten had a good second half and the three inside forwards performed well throughout. Final score 3-12 to 1-16. Team – Joe Doherty(H), Robert Boggs, Cormac Cullinane, Keelin White, Sean Byrne, Conor Gallagher, Conor Bambrick (0-1), Ciarán Doherty(JR)(2-0), Daniel Houten (0-2), Seán O’ Neill (0-1), Ciarán Doherty(D) (0-3), Conor Mc Geoghegan(0-2), Andrew Mc Daid (1-1), Joe Doherty(PM) (0-2), Jack Mc Laughlin(F).

Falcons QB Vick injured, but expected back next week

first_img Vick grabbed at his shin and remained down for several minutes. Finally, Vick climbed to his feet and walked slowly off the field to a standing ovation. Matt Schaub took over at quarterback with the Falcons leading 14-0, and pushed the margin to 24-0 by halftime. Vick tested his knee on the sideline and didn’t appear seriously injured, but the team said he had a sprained medial collateral ligament and he sat out the rest of the game. Hall tied a league record with his sixth career kickoff-return touchdown, a 96-yarder in the second quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. But his fourth-quarter fumble on another kickoff return set up the Eagles’ final touchdown in their 37-31 comeback victory. Hall, who added a 15-yard TD catch late in the fourth quarter, did not speak to reporters afterward – either about the turnover, one of four for the Chiefs, or his spectacular return. After Philadelphia’s Sheldon Brown scored on a 40-yard interception return, Hall took the ensuing kickoff at his own 4-yard line and started left. He cut back right, sliced through traffic near midfield and eluded a last-ditch dive by new kicker Todd France at Philadelphia’s 40 on his way to the end zone for a 24-6 lead. “I was trying to tackle Dante Hall, and that wasn’t going to happen,” said France, who was added this week after a hamstring injury left David Akers unable to kick. It was the 10th kick-return touchdown of Hall’s career, his first since a 97-yard kickoff return against Denver on Dec. 19, 2004. He returned kicks for scores in four straight games, an NFL record, in 2003. Hall now shares the kickoff-return record with Ollie Matson, Gale Sayers, Travis Williams and Mel Gray. Tagliabue sees more foreign games in NFL’s future Even before the first snap, commissioner Paul Tagliabue declared the NFL’s first regular-season game outside the United States a rousing success – and a prelude to the sport’s future. Tagliabue believes the San Francisco 49ers’ meeting with the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City on Sunday night will be the first venture in an annual extravaganza, with at least one festive regular-season game on foreign soil every season. The commissioner’s ability to convince each NFL club to take turns giving up a home game for the cause seems to be the main obstacle to his ambitious plan to boost American football’s international popularity. But Tagliabue is confident the owners will see the long-term benefits of such a plan, which could be discussed at league meetings this month. “The key is to let them know well in advance that they’re going to be giving up a home game,” Tagliabue said. “The other key is to make (giving up a game) a universal obligation to be a member of the NFL.” Tagliabue reiterated his hopes to take regular-season games to Canada, Japan, China and several destinations in Western Europe in upcoming seasons, with Toronto and London likely the top candidates to get a game as early as next season. Brothers in arms Somewhere, Archie Manning was smiling. His sons Peyton Manning and Eli Manning were having stellar days quarterbacking their teams to victories and putting up big numbers. Peyton Manning threw for 264 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Marvin Harrison that tied the NFL record for most TDs between a quarterback and receiver, in the Colts’ 31-10 victory at Tennessee. He finished 20 of 27. Eli, Peyton’s younger brother, had his second straight outstanding performance, throwing for 296 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in the Giants’ 44-24 win over the Rams. Through four games, the younger Manning has a 9-6 lead in touchdown passes over his brother, who has been to the Pro Bowl five times in eight seasons. Peyton Manning is in his eighth season with the Colts and has six years left on his $98 million contract. Harrison is in his 10th and signed a seven-year deal last December. Last week, they passed Buffalo’s Jim Kelly and Andre Reed for most yards passing. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Before going down, he rushed four times for 58 yards and went 6 of 8 for 49 yards with a touchdown. He is looking forward to playing against the defending Super Bowl champions. “We are going to get it on,” Vick said. “Two great coaching staffs, two great quarterbacks, two great teams.

Cost of back to school shopping criticised for putting Donegal families under pressure

first_imgPádraig Mac Lochlainn has said that there is in an urgent need to tackle the cost of sending children to school. The Donegal Senator said that Sinn Fein’s proposed a ‘Back to School Bonus’ of €140 per child to be paid to all families in the summer months to help tackle rising cost.The proposal is contained in a new policy document ‘Lets End Back to School Stress’, published by Sinn Féin. Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “Back to School costs make the summer months an extremely difficult time for many households across Donegal. Every summer, parents are put to the pin of their collar trying to organise uniforms, shoes, books, so-called ‘voluntary contributions’ and much more.“More than any other time of year, it is abundantly clear that ‘free education’ is a myth and parents are forking out, on average, €949 to get children ready for primary school and €1,399 for secondary school.“All of this is contributing to financial worry for many and that is why Sinn Féin is proposing a new ‘Back to School Bonus’ of €140 per child to be paid to all families in July.“This would be a double payment of Child Benefit to be paid to all families for each child, which would go some way to tackling rising Back to School costs and help ease the burden on families during the summer months. “We would also tackle the increasing use of so-called ‘voluntary contributions’ by properly funding schools through restoring Capitation Grants to pre-recession levels.“And we would legislate to ensure that schools work towards providing affordable uniforms, as well as increasing funding to the School Books Scheme to deliver free schoolbooks for all children.”Cost of back to school shopping criticised for putting Donegal families under pressure was last modified: August 19th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Admiral Schofield popped his Tennessee jersey to the Memphis fans who had been screaming at him throughout the game.The rivalry between Tennessee’s top basketball programs is back on, and the Volunteers have the upper hand for now.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening This rivalry had cooled down since that No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown in 2008. It’s the first game between the programs on either end of Tennessee since January 2013.These Vols came in with a big advantage in both size and experience with all five starters back from the team that shared the Southeastern Conference regular-season title last year. They trailed only once at 3-2 within the first minute on a trio of free throws by Harris.With Tennessee hitting its first five shots, including a trio of 3-pointers, the Vols took a 15-5 lead on Schofield’s 3 with 16:21 left. Tennessee led 50-35 at halftime. Hardaway said the Tigers worked all week to start fast.“Hey, man, that’s where they’re ranked No. 3 in the nation,” Hardaway said. “And we’ve just got to continue to work hard. The second half was more what we wanted, we just couldn’t put two halves together, which led us to lose by 10. When you give up 102 points on your own home floor, you’re not going to win too many of those.”The Tigers pulled to 63-56 when Antwann Jones’ 3 capped eight straight. Schofield scored the next five for Tennessee. Davenport did his best to rally Memphis but couldn’t get the Tigers closer than eight despite hitting 10 of 12 shots.BIG PICTURETennessee: The Vols finally have a true road game on their resume with the arena filled with lots of Memphis blue. Barnes wasn’t happy with his Vols turning it over 18 times, which Memphis turned into 14 points.Memphis: Hardaway needs more time, and his 2019 recruiting class is led by James Wiseman. But he had the Tigers racing up the floor every chance they got in transition. Hardaway’s halftime adjustments were evident when the Tigers hit as many shots (10) within the first nine minutes as the entire first half.CHIPPY FINISHWith 47.8 seconds left during a timeout, officials gave double-technicals to Bone and Memphis guard Alex Lomax. Hardaway said Bone said something disrespectful, setting off a sequence that included the Memphis coach not getting an answer about why the Vols didn’t get a technical for leaving the bench. Kyvon Davenport helped Memphis (5-5) keep Tennessee from blowing the Tigers out. He scored 26 of his career-high 31 points after halftime and had 11 boards. Tyler Harris added 10 points.First-year Memphis coach Penny Hardaway remains winless against the Vols after going 0-2 when playing for the Tigers in the early 1990s. Simply having the former NBA star as head coach has Tigers’ fans excited enough about the future that they sold out the FedExForum for the first time since March 7, 2009, against Tulsa just before coach John Calipari left for Kentucky.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Schofield scored 20 of his 29 points in the second half and added 11 rebounds as third-ranked Tennessee beat Memphis 102-92 Saturday to snap a three-game skid to the in-state rival.“We wanted to come in and make a statement for our university here on their floor,” Schofield said with a smile. “And I think we did that, so you know the crowd was chirping a little bit.

High court to settle dispute over missing professors pension payments

first_imgOTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada will decide whether an Ottawa university can reclaim almost $500,000 in pension payments to a professor who went missing before being found dead in the woods near his home.George Roseme, a political science professor at Carleton University, was 77 and suffering from early-stage Alzheimer’s disease when he disappeared in September 2007.A six-day search of the area near Roseme’s home in nearby west Quebec failed to locate him.Roseme had signed a memorandum agreeing that his pension payments would cease with his death, rather than going to his heirs or estate.When the university learned of Roseme’s disappearance, Carleton informed Lynne Threlfall — his former partner and recipient of the pension monies as his property administrator — that it would cease payments.The university was forced to reverse the decision after Threlfall pointed out that under Quebec law, Roseme was presumed to be alive for seven years after his disappearance or until there was proof of death.In July 2013, Roseme’s remains were discovered by a dog in the woods near his property, and a coroner’s investigation concluded he had died in 2007.Shortly afterward, the university went to court to recoup the $497,332 in pension monies paid to Threlfall since 2008.Threlfall unsuccessfully argued in Quebec Superior Court that she should not have to return the payments, given that Roseme’s death had only recently been confirmed. A three-judge appeal panel upheld the decision against Threlfall, prompting her appeal to the Supreme Court.As usual, the high court gave no reason Thursday for agreeing to take the case and no date has been set for a hearing.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA (660 NEWS) – The saga involving SNC and a former member of cabinet is hurting the Trudeau government in the eyes of voters.According to a new poll by Angus Reid, the federal Liberals trail the Conservative Party by seven points among decided and leaning voters.The poll shows the Tories at 38 per cent, Liberals at 31 per cent, and the NDP far behind at 14 per cent.New today: Trudeau government’s handling of SNC-Lavalin affair opens seven-point lead for CPC over Liberals https://t.co/aYw1hIU6Ay pic.twitter.com/EDPQEee466— Angus Reid Institute (@angusreidorg) February 26, 2019“(It’s) not necessarily especially surprising to us given the SNC Lavalin affair,” said research analyst with Angus Reid, Ian Holliday. “It’s been a tumultuous couple of weeks for the Trudeau government, and that seems to be taking a toll.”RELATED: Trudeau looking forward to Wilson-Raybould testimony on SNC-Lavalin controversyThe poll also showed nearly two-thirds of those who responded have an unfavourable view of Justin Trudeau and a similar number say opinions of the Prime Minister have worsened in the past month.Holliday did point out, though, that 54 per cent of respondents have an unfavourable view of Andrew Scheer with 64 per cent not favouring NDP leader Jagmeet Singh.None of the major federal party leaders have a positive favourability. Scheer (46% favourable, 54% unfavourable) comes closest at -8 https://t.co/aYw1hIU6Ay pic.twitter.com/sJvxf7h0Pv— Angus Reid Institute (@angusreidorg) February 26, 2019Those numbers are a far cry from the lead up to the 2015 election.“When we’re looking at Harper versus Trudeau and Mulcair in 2015, we tended to find more favourable or at least more neutral numbers for the opposition leaders than we are finding right now in this poll,” said Holliday.Holliday said that with the SNC Lavalin case still unfolding and the election just a few months away, more research and polls are expected to come.WATCH: Lametti, Trudeau comment on expected testimony from Wilson-Raybouldlast_img read more

In a phone interview, Sims said the grounding — now expected to continue at least through November — has forced WestJet to increase spending on fuel and cut its routes.

Sony PSP Outsells Nintendo 3DS

first_imgNintendo, and Sony have been rivals for years now. But for years, Nintendo has sat on top, leaving Sony scraping the barrel. Now it seems that Sony has finally turned the table on Nintendo. It is reported that the PlayStation Portable is selling more units than the new Nintendo 3DS. The difference is not huge, but big enough for Sony to milk it. The Nintendo 3DS only sold 32,910, while the PSP brought in a whopping 35,478 units. Keep in mind that these figures are solely based on Japan’s sales alone. No wider study has been done regarding this. Over this past year and a half Sony has made some huge gains in terms of sales. The PlayStation 2 is still a top seller, despite being over 10 years old, and it has even sold more units recently than the PS3. Neither Sony or Nintendo have released a statement regarding the number of sales. Via TG Dailylast_img read more

5 Innovative Ways to Automate Your Sales Processes This Year

first_img B2B companies of all sizes have discovered how sales automation programs can make tasks more efficient and effective. However, there’s still room to get additional value out of your pwn investment in sales automation techniques.Related: Automated Webinars May Be the Tool You Need to Scale Your Marketing EffortsHere are several unique ways to expand your automation strategy in 2017, to improve your sales processes for both your customers and sales professionals.Maximize upsell/referral opportunities through post-sale correspondence.B2B-focused organizations can learn a lot from their B2C counterparts: For instance, innovative companies like Amazon are often able to increase their upselling and cross-selling opportunities by employing sophisticated algorithms to recommend additional products for returning customers.It’s a remarkably simple idea, even if it’s based on the analysis of complex data: Find new ways to add value to your customers’ lives while simultaneously encouraging them to buy more. During the first quarter that the system was in place, Amazon reported a 29 percent revenue increase over the same period the year before.What Amazon also discovered, and what B2B organizations can learn as well, is that you can use this data to drive interest even when the customer isn’t browsing your site. If you’ve purchased anything from Amazon recently, you’ve probably noticed that the retail giant also includes item recommendations in the confirmation email you receive following an order.This is a great strategy to drive additional revenue, but you don’t have to use your confirmation and thank-you emails solely for upselling. You can also auto-populate links to various pieces of content, or include product support information that is relevant to each customer’s purchase.Maintain a bird’s-eye view of social media chatter.It’s never been more important to monitor what your customers are saying about their experiences with your company on social media channels. Most B2B buyers belong to multiple social platforms, and they are especially likely to start conversations there if they have a decent number of followers, as it’s a way to encourage the companies they deal with to listen.To turn this phenomenon into a positive for your organization, utilize software that can monitor various social channels and alert sales representatives to opportunities to serve prospects and customers online.Personalize user profiles and customer-maintenance pages.B2B-focused brands are going all-in on personalized sales strategies, as data suggests that some organizations are increasing conversion rates by up to 36 percent simply by employing personalized content throughout the sales funnel. But while many sales leaders see the benefits of big-picture personalization in B2B sales, they often forget that delivering a personalized experience is just as much about the small touches.When a prospect or customer creates a profile on your website, make sure that it is immediately populated with information that is relevant specifically to that person’s experience. This should include basics like the person’s name and company info, but also should be extended to incorporate product recommendations, support materials, content and order history.Automate coaching activities to boost your mid-range performersSales automation isn’t beneficial just when it’s used to directly improve the experience your customers have. You can also use the same principles to help motivate and coach your sales reps, and encourage them to reach new heights.Related: 10 Marketing Automation Hacks All Businesses Should Be UsingContemporary software solutions make it easy for you to record and analyze the specific habits of your highest-performing sales reps, and then replicate those techniques with other team members in your organization. This robust data analysis can also help you devise new strategies for optimizing your reward structure for each individual rep across various stages of the sales process.Incorporate chatbots in value-added ways.Don’t worry, though; they’re coming to assist salespeople, rather than replace them. Obviously, there are many interactions with a customer where AI alone is insufficient, but that also means there are some instances where it’s perfectly adequate.Many times, customers come to a website looking for a quick answer to a simple question. Chatbots can help direct them to a particular section in the FAQ, or help pull up a piece of content that can illuminate an issue for them. When these kinds of interactions are handled by automation, it frees up sales reps to focus more on core activities related to sales and CRM.Related: Why Sales Cannot be Automated in the Next 5 Years in FMCG IndustryObviously, there are many interactions with a customer where AI alone is insufficient, but also some where it’s perfectly adequate.
