Different Visions of the Future of Indiana Agriculture

first_img Different Visions of the Future of Indiana Agriculture SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Different Visions of the Future of Indiana Agriculture By Gary Truitt – Aug 20, 2020 Facebook Twitter Previous articleCFAP and WHIP+ Money Still Available to Indiana FarmersNext articleDifferent Visions of the Future of Indiana Agriculture on the HAT Friday Podcast Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Audio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/LG-debate-wrapup.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Many issues were discussed during this week’s Lt. Governor debate on agriculture, but there were two vastly different visions for the future of farming in our state from the two major candidates.With a four year track record of serving agriculture, incumbent Republican Suzanne Crouch was able to point to a number of successes in growing agriculture in our state. She promised more of the same during the next four years but admitted there would be some challenges.“We are going to be challenged in the upcoming budget session because of declining state revenue due to COVID 19 but that just presents us the opportunity on how we are doing business as a state,” she stated. “How can we roll back regulations to help our agribusinesses and farmers do business with the state in a more efficient and cost effective manner?”Democratic challenger Linda Lawson, new to agriculture but with a strong passion to help farm families, advocated a change in the way state government funds and works with farmers.“We need to put our money where our mouth is.”She added that Indiana provides less money to farmers than any other state in the union.“We need to treat farmers like we treat big corporations.”She promised to get more farmers involved in making state ag policy.“I want to see men and women who know about crops, who know about fertilizer and cover crops.”Crouch said Indiana agriculture’s best days are ahead of us.“The future will be bright when every Hoosier is connected with broadband access. That is how we can grow our ag economy the most.”Lawson said, without additional state funding for farming, growth and prosperity by farm families will not be realized.Both candidates made their remarks at the Lt. Governor’s agriculture debate on Wednesday at the Boone County Fairgrounds which was livestreamed statewide. The event was organized by the Indiana AgriInstitute.last_img read more

Request that Limerick be added to Pyrite Resolution Scheme a step…

It is normally a harmless mineral but when mixed with concrete backfill, it can cause walls to split in two.“The most effective remediation solutions suggested involve practically the removal of affected blockwork and the reconstruction of the houses.“There are houses affected by pyrite throughout the county, but people may have been afraid to come forward with many homeowners fearing a drop in their home value,” added Senator Byrne.According to the Pyrite Resolution Board if approval of the proposed amendment is granted by the Minister of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the Minister will give notice to the board of that decision and direct the board to make amendments to the Pyrite Remediation Scheme.Following this, the Pyrite Resolution Board has the power to the amended scheme and give notice to the Minister, who shall lay the scheme before each House of the Oireachtas.Should this be approved by the Dáil and Seanad, homes in Limerick city and county will be able to avail of funding from the Pyrite Remediation Scheme.

Manikumar and Justice Shaji P. Chaly noted that the clause (6) of Article 15 is only a provision, enabling the State Government for  making any special provision for the advancement of any economically weaker section other than mentioned in clauses (4) and (5). Referring to Ajit Singh and others v. State of Punjab and others [(1999) 7 SCC 209], the court observed that , since it is an enabling provision, a discretion is vested in the State to consider providing reservation if the circumstances mentioned in those articles so warranted. The bench said:”In State of Kerala, there is an Act called Kerala Education Act, 1958, which governs admissions and appointments in both, the Government and other recognized institutions..No special provision has been pointed out by the learned counsel for the petitioner providing reservation for economically weaker section in the society as per the 103rd Constitution amendment. As stated supra, Article 15(6) is only an enabling provision.”Holding that the petitioner association has not made out any prima facie case for ordering notice to the state, the bench dismissed the PIL, giving it liberty to file fresh writ petition, if there is substantive cause. Know The LawArticle 15(6) was introduced as per 103rd amendment to the Constitution of India. It reads as follows:””6) nothing in this article or sub clause (g) of clause (1) of article 19 or clause (2) of article 29 shall prevent the state from making:- a) any special provision for the advancement of any economically weaker section of citizen other than the class mentioned in clause (4) and (5) and b) any special provision for the advancement of any economically weaker sections of citizens other than the classes mentioned in clause (4) and (5) in so far as such special provisions relate to their admission to educational institutions including private educational institutions, whether aided or unaided by the state, other than minority educational institutions referred in clause (1) of article 30,” Last week, the Supreme Court, referred a batch of writ petitions, challenging the 10% quota for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), to a five-Judge bench.

Ocean City High School’s “Always Spectacular” Class of 2017 Graduates

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiHiba Ahmad recalled how she clumsily walked into a door during her first-period class on her first day as a freshman at Ocean City High School four years ago.“Not through. Into,” she noted. “I was so embarrassed, I wanted to melt into the ground and disappear. If this was how high school would go, I thought, I’d never graduate.”But Ahmad, who is heading to Georgetown University, now stands on the threshold of walking “through” many doors. She graduated Thursday as valedictorian of the Ocean City High School Class of 2017 and assured her classmates that they, too, will join her in walking through those doors of opportunity during their lives.“No matter how many tries it takes, we’ll pass through any door. And we’ll be proud of the person who walks through,” Ahmad said in her valedictory address during the commencement ceremonies.Graduates march into Carey Stadium while flanked by school administrators and faculty.Clad in red and white robes reflecting the school colors, a total of 315 graduates received their diplomas under sun-splashed skies at Carey Stadium. In a final, celebratory act to bring their four years of high school to a close, they tossed their caps high in the air amid cheers and applause.Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Taylor called the Class of 2017 “always spectacular.”In offering three pieces of advice to the graduates, Taylor humorously patched together a series of metaphors symbolizing the challenges they will face throughout their lives and how to overcome them.Steering them toward a path of financial stability, she told them the first thing they should do is to save a nickel. She urged them to put aside an even larger amount each time they save later on to build up enough to last a lifetime.“You are not saving for a rainy day. You are saving for your life,” she said.Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Taylor calls the Class of 2017 “always spectacular.”Taylor also suggested that they should “find a good car mechanic.” Alluding to the struggles the graduates will face ahead as adults, she stressed they will need to find reliable people, including friends, family members and car mechanics, they can always count on.Finally, Taylor reminded them of the importance of family. She said the latest research indicates that the graduates may live to the ripe old age of 104, so they should always recognize the love and support given to them by their family throughout their lives.“Remember, in life, it has been, and always will be, about your family,” she said.Kimberly Brown, left, is class salutatorian and Hiba Ahmad is valedictorian.Ahmad, meanwhile, told her fellow graduates that they should learn to “love themselves” and to accept the fact that they will make mistakes as they continue their lives after high school.“So let’s do it,” Ahmad said. “The world for us now is a blank slate. No excuses. Be the person you always wanted to be. Push yourself out of your comfort zone.“Graduating, and going out into the world, is a lot like potty training, only messier,” she continued, drawing laughter from the crowd. “We are going to have accidents, and we shouldn’t let anybody tell us that’s not okay. Because we’ll get to where we need to be.”Kimberly Brown, class salutatorian, said in her commencement remarks that high school graduation marks a “pivotal transition” in life that reflects the bravery and courage within all of the students.“During high school, we made many decisions that required courage, and we made the conscious choice to battle through our fears,” said Brown, who will attend Brown University. “Perhaps we feared pushing ourselves academically, telling our parents something, or voicing our opinions.“Whether or not we took a risk and did these things anyway, we should all be proud of ourselves for having been brave,” Brown added. “We’ve had to see that while blending in is easier, those who challenge the status quo make the most profound impact on the world. These people are leaders; these people are lights in the darkest surroundings. When we are brave, we drive change forward or fight against bad things.”Crowds packing the grandstand at Carey Stadium watch the commencement ceremony*Be sure to check-out our graduation pictures on our Facebook Page.The following is the list of the 2017 Ocean City High School graduates:**Patricia Mary Abenante**Christian Dennis AdamsRebecca Leigh Adamson*Julianne Grace Affanato+**Hiba Ahmad+**Rialee May Allen+**Alyssa Carmelina Altieri+**Bradari Philip Altman+**Jany Marcella AndersonJoshua Levin Anderson-RahnCameron Phillip AndresPeter A.

Japanese trading firm Mitsui to sell remaining coal-fired power plant assets by 2030

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Japanese trading house Mitsui & Co Ltd plans to sell its remaining stakes in coal-fired power stations by the end of the decade as it shifts to gas from coal to help achieve its 2050 net zero emission target, its chief executive told Reuters.“We still own stakes in coal-fired plants in Indonesia, China, Malaysia and Morocco, but our goal is to make it zero by 2030,” Mitsui CEO Tatsuo Yasunaga said in an interview on Friday.The comment – Mitsui’s first on selling out of coal-fired power generation – comes as firms worldwide move away from coal to cut harmful carbon dioxide emissions and slow climate change. Mitsui, which generates about two-thirds of profit from energy and metals, is also shifting away from oil. “With the COVID-19 crisis, we have postponed investment in a few upstream oil deals, but our liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects are on track,” he said.“Renewable energy can’t replace all other power sources in one fell swoop. Gas goes well with volatile renewable energy as gas-fired power generation is easy to switch on and off,” he said, adding Mitsui is also keen on cleaner energy such as offshore wind farms and hydrogen projects.[Yuka Obayashi and Noriyuki Hirata]More: Exclusive: Mitsui & Co to sell all stakes in coal-fired power plants by 2030 – CEO Japanese trading firm Mitsui to sell remaining coal-fired power plant assets by 2030last_img read more

Industrial Hemp: Think Green in 2015

first_imgPhoto Courtesy of Arne HückelheimIn today’s environmental movement, money talks.  Luckily one solution is surfacing that will boost our GDP while growing sustainability efforts at an exponential rate. Industrial hemp has been black-listed for years – being closely associated with it’s cannabis-cousin, marijuana.  However these two plants are very different, and laws are changing to define them more appropriately.  Jason Amatucci, founder of the Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition, is a voice for this cause right here in the Southeast and here’s what he has to say.“Hemp cannot, and does not, produce any drug whatsoever—no matter how you process it.  So why do we treat it like a dangerous drug to be strictly controlled?  We must do all we can to help vote out the politicians that are holding back the ‘no brainer’ sustainable American agriculture industry, American manufacturing, and an improved environment from advancing.”Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.28.39 AMPhoto Courtesy of UK College of AgricultureIndustrial hemp is a wonder crop that grows tall and fast.  It’s already being used to manufacture clothing, rope, biodegradable plastic, Styrofoam alternatives, building materials, and paper.  And research is being done that shows potential for hemp as an efficient bio-fuel and soil-remediator.  Meanwhile, its seed contain a balanced concentration of protein, essential fats, vitamins, and enzymes, while sugar, starches, and saturated fats are nearly non-existent—making it one of nature’s most-perfect foods.Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.37.53 AMPhoto Courtesy of Real HempIn addition to its consumer uses, it is good for the soil and grows like a weed.  With little need for pesticides and resilience to adverse weather conditions, hemp could be the cash crop American farmers have been waiting for.  Most importantly, it is nitrogen-fixing and puts down deep roots to support its long straight stalk. That loosens compacted soil.  These facts coupled with its high yield per acre, and high demand make it a no-brainer for farmers and environmentalists.Fashion designers, food connoisseurs, engine nerds, and laissez-faire farmers are touting the accolades of this green gold while consumers reap the benefits. Similar in texture to linen (produced from flax, a cousin of cannabis), hemp can be used effectively in textiles as delicate as bedding, producing durable and luxurious products with a more sustainable business model.  But the U.S. still imports nearly all of this raw material.After being eradicated from American soil and banned from our shelves for the better part of a century, hemp is poised to make a major comeback.  While the federal government plays catch-up on antiquated laws, the rest of the industrialized world has seasons of yields that they’ve been learning and earning from.  Luckily, many state-level legislatures now differentiate industrial hemp from marijuana in the eyes of the law.Opportunities for exponential growth in the cultivation, production, manufacturing, and research for this useful plant has the federal government taking yet another look. Over the last decade hemp bills have been introduced by many prominent members of Congress and always snickered at, normally left to die on the floor of the House.  But this year is different.  Nearly half of the states have already reformed their laws and legislators are crossing the aisle to represent opportunities for business in their districts. From big cities to rural countryside, hemp is an important crop that can revitalize entire industries while restoring the local environment.The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 (S. 134 & H.R. 525) was reintroduced early this session and is spending time in committee —further than it’s ever gone before. In a legislative session that represents a population who is mostly pro-cannabis, this could be the year that we see the federal ban on hemp finally lifted.Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.40.37 AMIn the Southeast, Kentucky has one growing season under its belt and leads the way in hemp research.  Virginia just earned a victory in Bill 1277 that has legalized industrial hemp for research purposes but Jason Amatucci says that it’s not nearly enough.“In the commonwealth of Virginia we still have a lot of political work to do. While Virginia Bill 1277 legalized tightly-controlled industrial hemp research and was a baby step in the right direction, we will not see business, manufacturing, and farmers getting fully involved until the industry is on proper legal footing. In Kentucky, the leadership in that State is 110 percent behind hemp.”Currently, Virginia lawmakers are sitting on their hands, noone wanting to make the first move.  Meanwhile other states have begun to reap the rewards.  Now, we’re all in this together and anyone making progress is progress for all.  However, farmers and entrepreneurs are anxious to get their feet wet in this burgeoning industry, and they need to be given the opportunity in as many places as possible.“[Kentucky politicians] have provided a pro hemp environment which has attracted lots of business investments to date. This year Kentucky will have 120 or so separate research projects growing hemp, some working with businesses and sales of the crop.  For Virginia to have any chance of remotely catching up to Kentucky, the government will have to get fully behind hemp and give farmers and businesses the legal protection they deserve in 2016.”  Amatucci says.So, if it’s so great, why is it illegal?There are several downsides to consider.  First and foremost, given the current trends in Cannabis reform, marijuana and hemp often go hand-in-hand.  Most of the medical or recreational marijuana states have passed hemp legislation as an obvious companion.Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.46.14 AMPhoto Courtesy of Mike MozartSeveral states have now passed legislation in the reverse with hemp leading the charge, posing some concerns.  And these concerns are highly political – Virginia’s own Bob Goodlatte, representing Roanoke and Lynchburg, has come out with his own concerns regarding enforcement.Goodlatte recently said:“If you take the DEA out of the process, you’re going to have a situation where this law will be honored in name only and not used for the purpose it is intended, which is research,” Goodlatte said. “You cannot determine the THC limits of cannabis plants simply by looking at them. They need to be examined. The DEA fulfills that role.”Secondly, rural homesteaders have always had issues with marijuana crops showing up on their land and wouldn’t a field of hemp make for a great place to hide a few marijuana plants?  Well, yes and no.  Firstly the cross-pollination effects would likely favor the hemp plant because of sheer numbers and – even if marijuana is able to grow to maturity in these conditions – it would need feet of space around each plant to accommodate it’s low-growing, bushy appearance.  These are likely to stick-out obviously among fields of tall, close-growing hemp – making it easy for DEA to identify during the fly-overs they already conduct.Lastly, because it’s so tough, harvest and processing can be labor and cost-intensive.  Farmers tell horror stories of the bast fibers shredding their combines with resinous vigor while others talk of week-long machete-wielding work parties.  Even after the harvest, the work of retting (separating the fiber from the rest of the plant) and decorticating (cleaning each component of the plant) introduce additional steps outside of a farmer’s normal tasks.Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.48.14 AMPhoto Courtesy of FenrisulfirThese concerns are valid and warrant careful consideration from legislators.  Looking to other countries yields no perfect answer to these questions but can the U.S. afford to allow another industry to be grown, processed, and packaged overseas when the best opportunities are available on American soil?  Jason Amatucci and the Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition hope that this fate does not last much longer.  He says:“What is holding the American Hemp industry back is the complete ignorance by a minority of politicians who still cannot seem to grasp the concept that industrial hemp is not marijuana, nor does hemp provide a good environment to grow marijuana. Some politicians scapegoat is that there is no market for it. That is flat out wrong and can be directly discredited by the vast amount of data from every other industrialized nation that grows industrial hemp.  [The U.S.] is the only industrialized nation in the world that does not have a hemp industry.”Protect our soil.Beyond the monetary benefits, take a moment to consider soil sustainability.  Maybe a term you haven’t heard of but probably should have.  History has shown us the detriment of over-farming.  For example, the Dust Bowl offered valuable lessons about the importance of topsoil – lessons we haven’t quite learned from.Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.49.46 AMPublic DomainToday, many of the farms that feed us do so by producing large amounts of one crop at a time, rotating between corn and soybeans, for example, in a yearly cycle.  Hemp provides a near-perfect addition to this system.  Nitrogen fixing and deep-rooted, never before has a high-yielding cash-crop that remediates the soil taken so long to be sown.Amatucci went on to say:“The potential of hemp to benefit our economy and environment is enormous. Any politician standing in the way of fast tracking industrial hemp for our state and our nation is acting extremely irresponsibly. It is a shame that in 2015 we still have some with a ‘reefer madness’ mentality, holding back change and progress for our citizens – and a cleaner, healthier, sustainable environment.”Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.54.28 AMPhoto Courtesy of AvrietteThe Cannabis plant is a catalyst for a sustainable future and the more time we put off its cultivation, the bigger industrial mess our future generations will be cleaning up.  Although once demonized as an addictive substance that causes paranoia, cannabis is now legal in almost half of the United States.  It is essential to the revitalization of our economy.  Consuming non-renewable resources has driven our culture into an unsustainable direction that consumes without giving back.  Hemp will reverse those affects by repairing the soil it’s grown in and building a more sustainable future with each harvest.To get involved, contact your elected officials – give them your knowledgable stance on this important issue and help influence the future of local and federal legislation.  Then, join the Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition and other local organizations to celebrate Hemp History Week 2015 in Richmond on June 7th at the Byrd Theatre.  This event will be screening the documentary “Bringing it Home” at 1:35 pm with a Q and A panel after the film along with raffles for hemp products.  More details can be found here.Check out these links for more information.http://votehemp.com/take_action.htmlvahemp.orghttps://www.facebook.com/vahemp.orghttps://twitter.com/VirginiaHemphttps://www.facebook.com/pages/North-Carolina-Industrial-Hemp-Alliance/184445231595295https://www.facebook.com/KentuckyHIAlast_img read more

UNITAS Amphibious is Critical for Brazil to Achieve its Military Objectives

first_imgBy Dialogo November 23, 2015 I am proud of our service members. I consider them as the backbone of this country because of the good moral development that distinguishes them as well as the determination to defend the country internally and at our borders. As I see it, they are the greatest and truest patriots of all. I wonder how active the Navy of Brazil is in the disaster in Mariana, Minas Gerais as far as mitigating the problems on the riverbanks and involvement in the affected sea areas. Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: Our presence in this strategic environment is through what today is called “soft power;” it occurs off the coast of Africa, in Namibia, assisting their Navy in building their Marine Corps. It also occurs in São Tomé and Príncipe in the development of the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe Armed Forces Coast Guard Marines; in short, we actually already have this presence in the Atlantic Ocean. With regard to the Blue Amazon, we have an obligation to ensure the safety of our resources, including with regard to asymmetric threats. We see acts of piracy, which, of course, require that we have qualified people to act upon the so-called Asymmetric Reaction Groups. Therefore, the example I give is our Maritime Task Force Flagship that is in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), which has a Marine detachment on board, and part of that on-board group is actually an Asymmetric Threat Reaction Group. Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: We have benefited from hosting major events in Brazil, such as the 2011 Military World Games, the 2013 Confederations Cup, and the 2014 World Cup. Therefore, we have had the opportunity to receive allocations of financial resources from the Navy, as well as resources from the Ministry of Defense and also from other ministries, for example, the Ministry of Sports. And this has enabled us to maintain the Corps in a situation that I would consider very good concerning equipment. When I say equipment, I speak of our light, heavy, and armor vehicles, but not only communications equipment, but all the chemical, biological, and radiological and nuclear defense equipment; stadium sweeps, decontamination in case of an incident, and also very specific special operations materials, particularly against terrorism. Diálogo: What is the effective participation of CFN in protecting the Blue Amazon? Diálogo: How is the financial crisis in Brazil affecting the Marine Corps? Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: The National Defense Strategy determines our operational boundaries: the Naval Forces, the Amazon fleet, the North patrol force ships, in short, the presence of the Marines is to ensure control of these waterways. The activities in the inner area of the Amazon are attributed to the Land Force, to the Brazilian Army. We have to be ready and capable of controlling the banks and margins that enable control of the waterways. It is a clearly defined division of tasks that exists between the Marine Corps Operating Force and the Brazilian Army’s Jungle Infantry Battalion. Diálogo: And what about the Gren Amazon? Lieutenant General Fernando Antonio: Brazil is positioned within a guideline provided for in the National Defense Strategy, concerned with its strategic environment, namely the Atlantic Coast of Africa, i.e. Portuguese-speaking countries on the seaboard, and including Mozambique, Timor, and Portugal and obviously all of South America and parts of the Caribbean. This strategic environment is an integral part of our international relations goals as a country. And an exercise such as UNITAS Amphibious is perfect for us to exercise our contribution in achieving this goal; which is to have this relationship with the countries of our strategic environment. I believe this is the greatest importance. Lieutanant General Alexandre: Resource management is becoming more accurate and more refined with modern management practices that are being employed more frequently, and this also helps during this time of crisis, so it does not have such a great impact on the Force. Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: For me it is very rewarding to work with the Marines. Personally, since I was a second lieutenant, I had contact with the U.S. Marines, when enrolled in the Command and General Staff Officers Course. Imagine, a second lieutenant taking a specific amphibious operations logistics Command and General Staff Course! Today, our doctrine is its own doctrine, but we were heavily influenced by the Marine Corps and this was something that occurred naturally after the great amphibious campaigns in World War II. This influence was something natural and my generation is a post-World War II generation, which already had this influence through manuals, courses in the United States, and so on when it began to occupy the first positions professionally. I was an exchange officer in the Second Marine Division, which is the main operating unit of the U.S. Marine Corps. As General Commandant of the Marine Corps and previously as Commander of the Marine Force Fleet commanding one of the forces of the Marine Force Fleet, to see this participation today, this integration with the U.S. Marine Corps is very rewarding. It is also very gratifying to hear them truthfully say that we are on the right track, that we are such a high level of training, operating preparedness, and readiness at the strategic requirement of our country. They have great consideration for the Brazilian Marine Corps. So much so, they bring the U.S. service members here for training with us, regardless of UNITAS. We have had their participation in normal day-to-day training with our staff here. The presence of a United States Marine officer in the General Staff of the Marine Force Fleet Division is proof of that. The Marines have participated with us in the annual exercises in Formosa (Brasília) for a few years. So, I believe that this integration has been going well for some years. Brazil is the host country for UNITAS Amphibious (2015), which is a joint military training exercise between Marines from various countries of the Americas. The event, led by the Brazilian Navy (MB), through the Marine Corps (FN) command, is being held November 15-24 in Rio de Janeiro. Diálogo spoke with Marine Corps Lieutenant General Fernando Antonio Siqueira Ribeiro, Commandant-General of the Brazilian Marine Corps (CFN) to learn more about this, which is the oldest multinational naval exercise of the Americas and other current issues affecting the CFN . Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: The Brazilian Navy is in the process of procuring the multipurpose ship Doca, which will be received by us within a few months and will be christened with the name Bahia. This will, without doubt, confer the Marines with the capability to project power. To extend this capability to the MB is important because it is a resource with a number of possibilities that can be used to support the civil defense agencies in any natural disaster, or something of that nature; for example, a natural disaster at one of the oil fields. It is a resource that can operate in support of the society facilitating any problem that may have occurred, but also in amphibious operations. In short, we are capable of carrying out our amphibious operations within our capabilities. Currently, I do not see a sector within the Corps that may become a concern; a drop in its quality and readiness. center_img Diálogo: Can you give an example of equipment acquisition in the short term? Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: I expect that Belém, depending on the documentation and other necessary procedures, will happen in 2017. And Ladário will be in a not-so-close future. I would consider Belém in the short term, Ladário in the medium term and another force, you did not mention, Tabatinga, in the long term, as we do not have a Marine presence there, except for the Manaus Riverside Operations Battalion, which is stationed there. We would have to build facilities, etc. This is the structure we have in the Green Amazon region. Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: The Marine Corps’ main focus is their amphibious component. We are an integral part, absolutely intrinsic, of the Brazilian Navy. We are the Brazilian Navy. We participate in everything concerning the Blue Amazon and more, all our strategic environment comprises the South Atlantic and the coast of South America, in addition to the coast of Africa. Control of this Atlantic region may have to be carried out by controlling certain bases, certain islands, and certain strategic locations on the coast and this is exactly what is provided for in the National Defense Strategy. Operations on ocean islands are attributed to the Marine Corps, and this is clearly determined. The National Defense Strategy also determines that the Navy must have a Marine Corps operating in a permanent state of readiness to act near the projection of power. And this projection of power will occur under this circumstance on the coast that will or will not be hostile, with or without consent, of the sitting government to execute one of those traditional types of amphibious operations and this is the Marine’s natural calling. Diálogo: The United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) will be terminated in 2016. What were the main legacies for the Brazilian Military, especially the Marines, participating in this important UN peacekeeping mission from its inception in 2004? Diálogo: What is the importance for Brazil to be the host country of UNITAS Amphibious? Diálogo: How does this presence occur? Diálogo: And when do you estimate to transform the FN Forces in Belém (PA) and Ladário (MS) into Riverine Operations Battalions, therefore, emphasizing the military presence in the border region? Lt. Gen. Fernando Antonio: “Lessons learned” was the most important. I think that as we study the procedures we adopted in the various MINUSTAH stages; initially, the clashes with the gangs that were established in Haiti and later, the effective role to legitimize an electoral process that was held there after many years. Later, the stabilization, area control, etc. took place when we began planning the reduction of military forces in Haiti, but then came the January 2010 earthquake. From that point forward there was a radical change in procedures and once again lessons learned. Lessons learned that unfortunately we had to use here in Brazil. We’ve had to apply the lessons learned in Haiti to address post-earthquake humanitarian operations in Chile and we have applied [them] in many, not only our Marine Corps, but also the Brazilian Army that is now aiding at the dam failure in Mariana (MG). And later, during this period: once again the pursuit of stability and preparing the necessary infrastructure in the country so it can continue. The idea of the United Nations Mission is to ensure the stability of the country so that it can continue by its own means. Therefore, a UN mandate approved by the Security Council on October 15, determining the role of MINUSTAH until October 15, 2016, clearly states that the military troop’s portion will be terminated. Furthermore, it intends to establish another peace mission. As a result, our service members stationed there will return. Specifically, for the Marine Corps, I believe the takeaway is this great legacy of lessons learned. But we also ended up benefiting with a lot of material resources. We had to apply resources very quickly in so-called individual ballistic protection equipment. We already had our bulletproof vests, but the modernity of equipment that were emerging, the weapons, demanded that we also evolved in replacing our helmets, in replacing our ballistic plate carrier vests to protect vital areas. Various items from our individual equipment were used: knee pads, elbow pads, shoulder pads, in short, there was a concern with all this basic individual combat equipment to provide better ballistic protection to the combatant Marine. With regard to materiel, I believe the great legacy was the entry or the return of Marine Corps-employed wheeled armored transport vehicles. We also had legacies in doctrine, the preparation of our service members, the attitude of certain procedures, use of simulators for actions. We trained with the use of a laser infantry tactical simulator, for example. I believe the whole of our participation in the peace mission in Haiti will support everything we do for many years to come. That was very important. Diálogo: What is the importance of conducting joint and other exercises between the CFN and the United States, generally speaking, and the Southern Command (MARFORSOUTH) in a more specific way? Marine Lieutenant General Alexandre José Barreto de Mattos, Commander of the Marine Force Squadron, present at the interview, made an aside. last_img read more

Brazilian Army Participates in Operation at the Border with French Guiana

first_imgBy Taciana Moury/Diálogo June 20, 2019 The Brazilian Army (EB, in Portuguese) and the French Foreign Legion stationed in French Guiana conducted an unprecedented operation along the border of both countries: Operation Tumucumaque. EB’s Amapá Border Command and the 34th Jungle Infantry Battalion (CFAP/34º BIS, in Portuguese), headquartered in the state of Amapá, and the French Foreign Legion’s 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3º REI, in French) coordinated the operation carried out April 11-13, 2019. The objective was to fight transborder and environmental crimes in the region. The operation was the result of an agreement between EB’s Northern Military Command and the French Armed Forces Command in French Guiana to enable simultaneous and coordinated use of troops in the border region. “There is integration between subordinate commanders deployed at the border and unit commanders to ensure the feasibility of such operations,” said EB Colonel Gelson de Souza, commander of CFAP/34º BIS. About 150 Brazilian and 150 French service members participated in Tumucumaque. Units carried out blockades, flood controls, area control, and riverine and land patrols. Service members conducted 12 activities during the operation and patrolled more than 180 kilometers of rivers. “The missions occurred simultaneously on both sides. While the 3º REI troop was conducting the incursion in Guiana territory, the CFAP/34º BIS troop was conducting river control and blockades, and vice versa, which enabled a more effective result,” Col. Gelson said. Benefits of a coordinated border operation For the officer, the first edition of Tumucumaque was successful. He said the combined activity keeps the ties of units that operate in the border active, and promotes operational exchange by sharing information and techniques. “As a result, units improve personnel planning in the region,” he said. Although this was Tumucumaque’s first edition, units already operate jointly on border patrol and to counter illegal activities. “Due to their proximity, issues can migrate rapidly from one territory to another in the region,” Col. Gelson said. “The integration with the French Foreign Legion is incredible, from the commander of the French unit and his General Staff to our most up to date patrollers, who work together on the Oiapoque River.” Activities conducted during Tumucumaque also contributed to important information gathering on most common crimes, especially illegal mineral exploration. “The information gathered will be compared against data from image analysis and intelligence reports and will serve as a basis for specific larger-scale operations, such as the phases of [operation] Ágata,” said EB First Lieutenant Leonardo Quintanilha Rodrigues, commander of the Special Border Company’s 1st Jungle Platoon of Clevelândia do Norte district. “During one of the missions we traveled across the Marupi River, a tributary of the Oiapoque River in Brazilian territory, which is between both countries. The day-long patrol identified various positions showing evidence of mineral exploration — trails and erosion in the jungle,” said 1st Lt. Quintanilha. “The reconnaissance river patrols are always efficient due to our troop’s expertise in a jungle environment and their ability to track signs of human activity within this environment.” According to 1st Lt. Quintanilha, overcoming logistics obstacles associated with the operation in the Amazon border region was challenging. “The large amount of water, food, and fuel required in these operations is a difficulty presented in long-distance travels,” he said. “Operation Tumucumaque required a thorough logistics study to ensure everything would go as planned,” Col. Gelson added. On the last day of the operation, EB service members performed a Civic-Social Action (ACISO, in Portuguese), in partnership with the Oiapoque Ministry of Health, in Vila Brasil, providing medical and dental services to the local community, as well as HIV and Malaria testing. “ACISO is very important to the residents of these remote areas. The Brazilian Army is often the only institution capable of providing such support,” Col. Gelson concluded.last_img read more

Pandemic planning puts ethics in spotlight

first_imgMay 25, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – When vaccine supplies are limited, should children, young adults, or seniors move to the front of the line for shots? Is it appropriate to remove one person from a ventilator to put somebody else on the machine?Those are samples of the thorny ethical questions pandemic planning raises. People rely on ethical frameworks to answer them. Some experts are encouraging Americans to think aloud about rationing and other problems expected during a flu pandemic, to enhance public awareness and cooperation.Having a public discussion about values is a crucial step in preparedness, said Arthur Caplan, PhD, Emmanuel and Robert Hart Professor of Bioethics, chairman of the Department of Medical Ethics, and director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.”If you want support for decisions, you must get people to understand the underlying rationale, and that’s what ethics is,” Caplan said in a recent interview. “It’s important to have a framework. It’s important to have consistency or to explain expectations. It’s in the interest of getting compliance.”Exploring vaccine priorities offers an example of how to explain the ethics behind a pandemic planning issue. In its pandemic influenza plan issued in November 2005, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) made recommendations about which age and occupational groups should have priority for vaccination. Vaccine production and distribution workers, as well as frontline healthcare workers, received top priority, as recommended by the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).Several other groups followed, including people between 6 months and 64 years old with two or more high-risk conditions or prior hospitalization with pneumonia or influenza, pregnant women, household contacts of severely immunocompromised people, household contacts of children 6 months or younger, public health and emergency response workers, and key government leaders. The recommendations are subject to change depending on the epidemiology of a pandemic virus.In making those recommendations, ACIP members quickly focused on minimizing hospitalizations and deaths, said Jon Abramson, MD, ACIP chairman and Pediatrics Department chairman at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. Four ethicists outside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) participated closely, Abramson said. At least one proposal that seemed logical to Abramson got “shut down” by the bioethicists, and ACIP followed their advice.”It’s incredibly valuable” to have ethicists’ participation, Abramson said. “If you can’t make your case to the public on ethical principles, you’re in trouble.”Another way to allocate vaccineThe ACIP recommendations were challenged on May 12, when bioethicists writing in Science suggested an alternative. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, head of the Department of Clinical Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health, and Alan Wertheimer, a senior research fellow there, called the NVAC-ACIP guide the “save-the-most-lives” principle.The authors suggested focusing instead on what they called the “life-cycle principle,” based on the idea that each person should have an opportunity to live through all the stages of life. They also suggested refining that principle based on gradations within a life span. This would give priority to people between early adolescence and middle age on the basis of the amount people have “invested” in their lives balanced by the likely time left to live, they wrote in Science. Under that principle, “20-year-olds are valued more than 1-year-olds because the older individuals have more developed interests, hopes, and plans but have not had an opportunity to realize them.”The authors also emphasize public order as a principle that should affect the ranking of flu vaccine recipients. That would emphasize the value of ensuring safety and protecting the availability of life’s necessities.Combining the principles would lead to high priority for vaccinating those involved in bringing vaccines to the public, as well as healthcare workers. It would emphasize vaccinating people aged 13 to 40, who are last in line under the NVAC-ACIP recommendations.Explaining the rationale for federal guidance helps state planners, according to Kathy Harriman, PhD, MPH, RN, supervisor of the Infection Control and Antimicrobial Resistance Unit of the Minnesota Department of Health.If states don’t understand and buy into federal guidelines, Harriman said, myriad localities could have differing standards of care and priorities.”I find it troublesome that states and local governments will make different decisions,” she said. But she added that room for disagreement is the American way, and different localities have different needs and resources.”The decision logic should be the same in each place,” she said. At this point, however, many aspects of pandemic planning principles remain unclear. “How are decisions being made? Who’s making them? Who’s deciding who’s making them?”A member of the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC), which advises the CDC, said that bioethics is part of the committee’s work, but she described a less-explicit process.”I think the discussions occur, but they’re not named,” said Carol O’Boyle, PhD, RN, an assistant professor of nursing at the University of Minnesota. For instance, in discussing distribution of seasonal flu vaccine in the face of a projected shortage last year, “We did look at the greatest good. We did look at protection of the vulnerable.”Bringing ethics out in the openCaplan said that articulating the ethics underlying federal recommendations could enhance US pandemic planning. He described the two most important roles for ethicists as (1) offering suggestions about the fairest approach when rationing is necessary and (2) explaining what the rules are and why they exist.For example, he said, it’s important to explain to hospital staff members that they have an ethical duty to go to work during a pandemic. In an informal poll, he recently asked medical students whether they would report to work during a pandemic. About 40% said they would not.”I was completely astounded,” Caplan said. “I didn’t think it was going to be that high.” Those informal findings have led him to plan a formal survey for hospital employees to learn more about their feelings on the issue, he added.To date, Caplan gives the federal government low marks for talking about its decision-making process. The federal pandemic plan shifts a great deal of authority to states, which he called “a risk transfer” from the federal government.”It’s not even clear who is supposed to be in charge and to enforce the rules,” Caplan said. He called for town forums, congressional hearings, and high school and college teaching units to discuss rationing and resources. He suggested enlisting the support of popular media representatives such as Oprah Winfrey and CNN TV’s Anderson Cooper to host discussions.”I want it out there,” Caplan said. “It’s nice that there are experts, but ultimately ethics should facilitate democratic discussions.”Caplan is doing his part by leading the Ethics of Vaccines project, an 18-month effort begun December 7, 2005, to understand the vaccine field and propose an ethical framework to guide people in the safe, effective, and ethical use of vaccines. It includes a Web log intended to generate more discussion about ethics and vaccines.CDC tries citizen forums on vaccine issuesA separate effort is under way at the CDC, said Roger Bernier, PhD, MPH, senior advisor for scientific strategy and innovation at the agency. A vaccine expert and epidemiologist, Bernier became convinced a few years ago that some segments of the American public had a “trust problem” on vaccine issues. He developed a public engagement model to elicit public opinion and tested the model for the first time on pandemic influenza. The result was a collaboration among 14 public and private organizations that linked about 300 stakeholders and citizens in four regions and involved citizen forums.The groups reached consensus, Bernier’s report said. Assuring the functioning of society (using a minimum number of vaccine doses) was the first immunization goal, and reducing individual deaths and hospitalizations due to influenza was the very close second. “There was little support for other suggested goals to vaccinate young people first, or to use a lottery system or a first come, first served approach,” the report noted.Different groups bring different perspectives to the analysis of policy issues, or, as Bernier said in an interview, different lenses. Public health experts and advisors have not been explicit in the past about their own perspectives. It is important not to substitute citizens for experts, but when decisions are values-driven, citizens can play an important role in articulating the values.”This project illustrates that the lenses are not always identical, and shows the usefulness of public engagement,” Bernier said.”We need the public for three reasons,” he added. “We need their help, we need their advice, and we need their buy-in. . . . Even if we have the world’s greatest plan, if there’s not compliance, it can’t be implemented.”Putting health threats in contextSteven Miles, MD, a professor in the Center for Bioethics at the University of Minnesota, urged people to take an additional step back and make sure that discussions about pandemic planning are occurring in the appropriate context—by assessing the threat in relation to other and potentially more pressing health threats worldwide.”It’s ethics’ role to basically insist on a structural firewall between the politics of fear-mongering and homeland security, and the science of public health risk assessment,” Miles said. “Within the context of that firewall, we need threat assessments that address bioterrorism threats compared with other health threats, and a way of dealing with both the certainties and the uncertainties.”The threat of pandemic flu, like the threat of an anthrax attack, has been removed from the context of other public health threats, such as multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and polio, and ought to be reintegrated into that context, Miles said. Right now, gauging the likelihood of a pandemic or anthrax attack occurring within a given period, as well as assessing their health and economic effects, amounts to plucking probabilities out of the air, in his view. In contrast, the threat of MDR-TB is much better understood.”We can get a better sense of where our money has to be allocated,” he said. Although fighting the Marburg fever outbreak in Angola last year got a lot of public attention, the expense of sending a medical team to contain an outbreak that affected only a few hundred people should be considered in the context of the impact of MDR-TB in Angola.”We win the skirmish with Marburg as MDR-TB makes a full scale assault on our health systems,” Miles said.Miles went so far as to assert that bioethics has never been optimally used in settling major healthy policy questions. The field has been used “to issue a benediction on courses of action that have already been decided upon,” he said. “In the context of a genuine moral controversy, where the political balance of power is not set, where the uncertainty is high, the ability to bring in bioethicists to set up a framework of arguments has never been done.”Caplan sounded a more optimistic note.”Ethics is very powerful,” he said. “It’s the glue to prevent anarchy. I’m not saying it’ll work, but it’s the best glue we’ve got.”See also: Science article “Who should get influenza vaccine when not all can?”http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/summary/312/5775/854HHS pandemic vaccine priority groupshttp://www.hhs.gov/pandemicflu/plan/pdf/AppD.pdfEthics of Vaccines project: http://www.vaccineethics.org/University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics’ publication “Stand on Guard for Thee: Ethical Considerations in Preparedness Planning for Pandemic Influenza”http://www.jointcentreforbioethics.ca/people/documents/upshur_stand_guard.pdflast_img read more

The Motovun Film Festival has joined the global #PlasticFreeJuly campaign

first_imgPhoto: Motovun Film Festival The European Parliament today agreed to the ambitious measures proposed by the European Commission to address the problem of marine litter. Ten different disposable plastic products are most commonly found on European beaches, as are abandoned fishing gear and OXO biodegradable plastic. After summer festivals and concerts, we regularly witness piles of discarded plastic on lawns, beaches or squares – primarily disposable plastic cups.  Collaboration of Greenpeace and Motovun Film Festival “We realized that we were part of the problem and decided it was time to become part of the solution. From its beginnings we have been a festival that cares about the world in which it lives. In addition to the films we show, we want to show it with the accompanying programs, as well as the way we conduct the entire festival. This year we supported the global campaign #PlasticFreeJuly, and we will continue this way in the coming years” said festival director Igor Mirkovic. Thus, this year’s slogan of the festival proudly stands out “Our glasses are not to be thrown away”, and the organizers encourage caterers to throw out glasses, straws and plastic spoons during the event. The facilities involved in the action are marked with a PLASTIC FREE certificate, and visitors are invited to support such caterers. Thus, the disposable glasses that have been thrown away so far will be replaced by reusable glasses, which visitors will be able to return with a refund or keep as a souvenir.  From there, they end up in landfills or directly in the sea, and then follow the years and decades of decay into smaller pieces, the so-called. microplastics. New research SKY-in which the analysis of drinking water, salt, air, etc. was done shows that the problem with microplastics is not only marine animals but ourselves. PLASTIC DISPOSABLE ITEMS FORBIDDEN IN 2021 EU FROM XNUMX For the above reasons, the Motovun Film Festival, which takes place from 23 to 27 July, has joined Greenpeace’s global action – Plastic Free july with the aim of raising awareness about the harmfulness of disposable plastics, permanent environmental pollution and the consequences for living organisms.  Find out more about the project in the attachment. In cases where there are easily available and affordable alternatives, disposable plastic products will be banned from the market. So from 2021 they should no longer be sold plastic earplugs, cutlery, plates, straws, beverage sticks, lightweight bags, balloon holders, oxo-degradable plastic and certain styrofoam articles. HrTurizam.hr supports the global Greenpeace project of removing plastics in the tourism industry, and we hereby invite all tourism workers to discard plastic bags and sign the petition at the link / / / http \: //act.gp/ Finally, it is interesting how the collaboration came about. A simple calculation of last year’s edition of Motovun led to an interesting fact. The plastic cups that were used every day could be used to build a tower higher than the Motovun hill, which is located at a considerable 277 meters above sea level. But that scenario will no longer happen at the Motovun Film Festival. Well done for the environmental awareness and great collaboration. “We are about to transpose the EU Directive on disposable plastic into national laws. Since we know what damage we are doing, there is no need to wait for legal restrictions. This year, Motovun took the first steps in that and showed an example that other events should follow. It will take more time for caterers to get used to the spy return cup system as well, and we certainly primarily support the transition to such alternatives – reusable. We invite caterers, as well as organizers of other festivals to move in that direction as soon as possible”, Said Petra Andrić, Greenpeace campaign manager.last_img read more

Local buyers snapping up cost effective terrace homes in Murarrie

first_imgPark Hill Village at Murarrie is offering large terrace homes, filling a gap in the housing market.LOCAL buyers who understand the convenience of living in Murarrie are snapping up terrace homes in Park Hill Village.Marketing manager for the project, Maurie Infanti, said with 22 out of 34 already sold in stage one, it was fair to say that sales were travelling well.“There has been a lot of interest from the local area, with local buyers who know and appreciate the area for what it is,” he said.Location is a huge attraction in Murarrie, and coupled with home-sized terrace homes, the developer has hit on a winning combination.“Proximity to the city and the Gateway motorway is a big attraction, with only about seven kilometres as the crow flies to reach the CBD,” Mr Infanti said.“Then there is the nearby train station and it’s also only about a 14 minute drive to the airport as well. “There are some really good schools in the area, and if you head further south in only a few minutes you’re at Carindale shopping centre.” More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor9 hours agoPark Hill Village at Murarrie offers views, location and space.Owner occupiers are buying in, loving the benefit of having home-sized living but with the convenience of also having a pool, gym and picnic area without the upkeep.“It’s a nice way to have all of those facilities without the ongoing costs,” Mr Infanti said.He said more people were moving towards terrace homes rather than building their own home.“To build a brand new home on a block of land at Murarrie is very expensive, so this fills a void in the market,” Mr Infanti said.The homes are three or four bedroom, each with two car accommodation and on an elevated position with city and suburban views.To get a feel for what you would be buying, the developer has built not one, but two full sized terrace display homes.“It’s a number one drawcard because people can see the high ceilings and spacious living areas for themselves,” Mr Infanti said.Developed by Juxgold pty Ltd, stage one homes start at $599,000, with stage two set to be released soon.last_img read more

United wages higher than Chelsea

first_img In 2004, the Roman Abramovich-owned club were reckoned to be the biggest payers in world football as Chelsea spent heavily to challenge United’s dominance. Ten years on, and Manchester City are now easily the biggest payers in the Premier League, and Chelsea’s accounts lodged with Companies House show that they are now in third spot in the ‘wages league’ below United as well. Chelsea’s wage bill in 2012/13 was £176million compared to £182million for Manchester United in the same season, while Manchester City’s was £233million. Chelsea’s salary bill for the season also includes £4million paid during the course of the year to former manager Roberto Di Matteo – the accounts say the sum is for “termination payments and compensation in relation to changes in the first-team management structure”. The increasingly-prudent approach to wages at Chelsea reflects the club’s commitment to complying with UEFA’s financial fair play rules, where clubs in European competition can only record losses of 45million euros (£37.5m) during the first two-year accounting period. Chelsea have also benefited from signing the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata before they were established superstars demanding huge salaries, which also has taken the pressure off the wage bill. Wages at the Stamford Bridge club actually fell overall in 2011/12, and the rise last season was around three per cent compared to an 11.6% increase at United. In terms of UEFA’s spending rules, Chelsea Football Club Ltd’s accounts state: “The introduction of UEFA’s financial fair play regulations from the 2011/12 season provides a significant challenge. “The football club needs to continue to balance success on the field together with the financial imperatives of this new regime.” The latest figure are in stark contrast to 10 years ago when Deloitte’s annual football finance review estimated Chelsea’s wage bill of £115million in 2003/04 as “almost certainly the highest in world football”. In that year, Roman Abramovich’s first full season of ownership of Chelsea, the club registered a 110 per cent increase in wages. Chelsea’s wage bill has been overtaken by Manchester United’s for the first time in more than a decade, it can be revealed. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

TENNIS : Orange remains confident through adversity of slow start

first_img Published on January 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Kevin: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Syracuse has not gotten off to the best start this season, dropping its first two matches on the road. However, head coach Luke Jensen is not ready to panic yet. He knows adversity will only make his team better in the long run.Jensen remains optimistic about the Orange’s ability to overcome the early struggles, pointing to his players’ unwavering confidence on the court.‘You are going to lose. You have to lose before you win,’ Jensen said. ‘If I have to deal with confidence and self-esteem, we’ve already lost.’Syracuse (0-2, 0-1 Big East) opened its season with two road losses to nationally ranked opponents South Florida and Texas Christian. Still, the Orange has its sights set on making the NCAA tournament this season after failing to accomplish that goal last season. With a young roster featuring five freshmen, the poor start could be detrimental to the team moving forward if not for Syracuse’s strong senior leadership.The seniors have been critical to keeping the team together and maintaining confidence during the difficult start. Jensen is quick to praise the efforts of his senior captains, Emily Harman and Alessondra Parra. With a freshman-laden roster, leadership and a sense of direction are crucial to the Orange’s success. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe head coach believes Harman and Parra have already exceeded expectations as leaders.‘Our two captains, it’s absolutely phenomenal how much they’ve grown since they were freshmen,’ Jensen said. ‘They’re not screamers and yellers, but they’ve improved every year in both work ethic and structure.’Throughout their four years at Syracuse, Harman and Parra have demonstrated that growth in displaying the qualities that Jensen recruited them for — confidence, self-assuredness and strong character. These traits are needed now more than ever, and their ability to pass them along to the younger players will be pivotal to keeping the team on track. Confidence is a trait that Jensen focuses on from day one of the recruiting process. Jensen looks beyond the tennis court when he decides who he wants in his Syracuse program. By recruiting similar-minded players, he is able to build a team of athletes that complement each other, both on and off the court. That recruiting strategy pays off during times of struggle, such as those the Orange encountered in the last two weeks. The bond the players share allows them to stay hard-working and focused as they prepare for upcoming matches, Jensen said.‘Losing the first two matches was kind of sobering, to be honest,’ Jensen said. ‘The players realize they have to train and work hard, and that they won’t be handed anything. We’re all about adversity here.’The transition to collegiate athletics is difficult in any sport. And on a young team, veteran leadership becomes even more critical.As far as Jensen is concerned, the upperclassmen set a framework for the newer players to follow, whether it is in time management, classes or handling the weather.‘It’s tough here, and some of these kids have no idea what a nor’easter is,’ Jensen said. ‘On a daily basis, our leaders make sure that everyone has the offense, the system and the specifics down. They’re a support system to help us navigate through a turbulent championship season.’Harman is the only player on this year’s team who has reached the 100-win mark over her career, bringing instant credibility in the locker room. She knows that her attitude and outlook will be noticed by everyone around the team, and she doesn’t take the responsibility lightly.The senior captain stresses to her teammates the privileges associated with playing college athletics. By leading by example, Harman hopes to keep the team on the right track and avoid a downward spiral as a result of the two early losses.‘It’s always important to make sure the team is moving in the right direction,’ Harman said. ‘The start is not what we would’ve wanted, but we can get better, and we can improve. The motivation will never cease.’That motivation is something that can keep a team on the right track, especially after a difficult start to a long season. The confidence and motivation present in the locker room — exemplified through the attitude of the team leaders — has Jensen optimistic for this week’s match and beyond.‘Our spirits couldn’t be higher,’ Jensen said. ‘This thing isn’t going to be over until April or May. The wins will come.’[email protected] last_img read more

USC women’s water polo shows weekend dominance

first_imgLooking to improve its No. 3 ranking, the women’s water polo team clinched two dominant victories over the weekend at the Cal Baptist Mini Invitational on Saturday. The pair of victories over Cal Baptist and Pomona-Pitzer highlighted the dual strength of the Trojans, which remained smothering on defense while lighting up the boards on offense to create a well-balanced attack throughout the day.Sophomore driver Kelsey McIntosh netted 21 goals as a true freshman. Emily Smith | Daily TrojanUSC started the day against the hosts, Cal Baptist, churning out a shutout victory to end with a 20-0 score. Junior goalkeeper Amanda Longan shone throughout her second clean sheet of the season, recording 12 saves to lock down the defense.The victory highlighted the strength of the Trojans’ underclassmen, who contributed 70 percent of the goals scored against Cal Baptist and a majority of the scores netted on the day. It was another marquee day for freshman defenseman Paige Hauschild, who notched 4 goals in the Cal Baptist game. Sophomore drivers Elise Stein and Kelsey McIntosh also contributed 4 goals apiece in separate games, with Stein starring in the opening game of the day and McIntosh delivering against Pomona-Pitzer. Sophomore driver Denise Mammolito also served up a hat trick in the Cal Baptist victory, while freshmen utility player Nadia Pavlovich and defenseman Verica Bakoc scored 2 apiece and freshman 2-meter woman Nina Ceklic found the net for the first time this season.The strength of the underclassman roster answered questions for the USC offense coming into the season after losing a sizeable senior class at the end of last year. Led by Hauschild, who has already been a star for the U.S. national team on the international circuit, the team is finding a balance of leaders between experienced upperclassmen and young guns.The game against Pomona-Pitzer snapped the team’s season-opening shutout streak, which lasted just under 81 minutes to start the 2018 season. However, the Trojans were still able to limit their opponent to only 3 goals in four quarters of action with senior goalie Victoria Chamorro playing the first three frames in goal. The team took a 14-0 lead by the half, but allowed its first goal of the season on a six-on-five advantage in the first minute of the second half.Despite allowing 3 goals, an aggressive attack allowed the Trojans to remain squarely in control of the game, with Mammolito notching another hat trick to tally a total of 21 goals. Senior goalie Nicola Gonzales took over for the final frame of action, recording two saves to close out the victory.The Trojans are now 3-0 on the season, but their play so far has been limited to this weekend’s pair of unranked opponents and an opening game against No. 23 LMU. As the team takes a weeklong break from action, they will prepare for the Triton Invitational in February, which will usher in a month of ranked opponents ahead of the MPSF tournament.last_img read more

Mr. Erol Mujanović: Sport is one of the most powerful peace buildings Agents in the World

first_imgMr. Erol Mujanović, a  professional manager and a  team leader implementing complex projects, leadership trainer and a marathon runner. How would you describe yourself?You have rightly described main areas of my professional and human interests in your  question. I have three very strong engines and highly motivating goals  that are boosting me in the life. The first one is to see a better society and more educated and intelligent people we live with. I contribute to this higher objective slowly but surely through my full time managerial jobs and projects in international organizations.The second motivation and goal is to bring people together through sport and to help individuals achieve  things they didn’t know they are capable of, such things as running the first marathon or running their first 10K. The focus being on the journey, not on the goal.  I realize this objective through the NGO Marathon Sarajevo and Running school Klix where we spend time with amazing people. Last but not least, I have a permanent desire to acquire new skills and experiences, to become a better person and to always give more in my efforts. This self-development objective and competition with myself I realize through running marathons myself or  through daily workouts.Mr. Mujanović, you are a co-founder of the NGO “Marathon” and School of running “Klix” that organizes Sarajevo half marathon. Can you say for the Sarajevo Times how have you decided and what has motivated you to open this kind of running school?I have always been in sport, especially in running for last 20 years, and the sport is one of the most powerful change and peace buildings agents in the world both from individual and from collective perspective.So after having had dozens of requests from people on how to train, what to eat, when to run,  etc together with my partners in the NGO we decided to launch the running school and established a very fruitful cooperation with Klix web portal. The school operates as a recreational’ runners  running club in western Europe,  together with my friends from NGO Marathon Sarajevo we simply share our extremely long and rich experience and make other people happy in discovering their great potential and motivation through sport.  To make the long story short we opened the school because we had number of requests from public for it but also we felt it was the right moment to offer the society  an excellent and affordable stress management and self-development tool. Today running is the most popular hobby in the world and there are many reasons for that. In B&H it is having a huge boom in last two years and we already have more than 40 registered persons for 2016 so it proves we are not only doing the right thing but also doing it in an excellent way. Today, with other trainers we are simply happier when we run with others and when we help other people run the first half or full  marathon than if we do our personal best but alone. Knowledge and passion are worthless if we don’t share them and help other people.Apart from running you are also active in business and entrepreneurship training. How many young people are given the opportunity in the private and public sectors to develop their talents and realize private business?Besides my full time job and besides also managing NGO Marathon Sarajevo, I am also very often engaged as a trainer or consultant  in fields such as leadership, management skills, business plans, motivation etc and it constitutes that third pillar of my activities. It is all about skills building and transferring my knowledge  to others so it makes me happy as well.Young people are obviously not given the opportunities to the right extent, there is limited number of places and they are mainly reserved for  “preselected” youngsters with connection but not always and  these are all reasons why young people shouldn’t wait to be given a chance but they should seize it right now. Especially in highly corrupted economy such in Western Balkans countries opportunities are even more challenging to find for young people. However I don’t  know about any person  who gave 100% in the life and that didn’t succeed. Not saying success is fast and easy but if you give your best there will usually come a bit of luck as well and eventually the person will succeed whatever the success and the goal for that person is.What are the advantages of Bosnia and Herzegovina to move forward, on which ones the elites need to insist? I believe the Reform agenda has defined pretty clearly a way to go for B&H as a country in terms of crucial areas to reform and there is no alternatives to the path of EU integration. So I wont detail much about it but is all about job creation, reforming the public sector and creating much more business friendly environment.More precisely for me it comes down as simple and small things as  the way the majority of citizen think here. Once we change the mindset than everything will follow. We should stop considering reform processes as external to us and  the ownership should be ours because  nobody else will do that job at our place. In the same spirit people should become much more courageous in their choices and decisions. Right now young people are thinking and behaving like some old people, dreaming about secured and well paid jobs in public sector, with the title of manager but with no responsibilities and accountability.  It is simply unrealistic.What is the number of unemployed young people in B&H? What are your recommendations to young people in the search for a job? That number is far too high and we are the worst in Europe. To answer your second question more concretely, I have participated in more than 100 recruitment processes in my career and the best choice was always the candidate that demonstrate passion for what was at stake and for the job. These candidates performed very well and were easy to distinguish from other candidates that were  all similar. Young people are huge victims of the system because they don’t get enough opportunity to accumulate valuable work experience so the one that are excellent very often have taken their destiny in their hands started working very young and by the age of 25 they already have a significant competitive advantage over the majority of job seekers. It is far from being easy but things wont get any better for our youth so they should act and take initiative to bring changes in this country. Older generation wont certainly do it.Can you say for the Sarajevo Times, what are the future plans for the School of running “Klix” ?Back to running and smiling, our school after having 20, 40 and 120 participants in first three years will continue to grow. Demand and interest are huge and we will gladly take new participants as of march 2016.We have been named “the most positive story in the city“ and we will keep putting the smile on faces of our fellow runners. On the one hand we will keep running and growing while keeping the quality of the approach. On the other hand we keep in mind bigger goals so we try to inspire others and try  to help other organizations or vulnerable groups by fund raising or awareness raising activities during our trainings or races.In the running school we realized that the simplest pleasures are the best ones and they are available to all. One run in the nature, one bottle of water shared with a friend, one good laughter with runners and after 45 min your day looks perfect and you are full of great energy for the rest of the day. It is priceless.Interview by Zejna SYlast_img read more

The Story of how Sarajevan Ema Ruvic made her Dream come true

first_imgFour years ago, on June 15, 2014, the National football team of BiH played a historic match at the World Cup in Brazil.Our Dragons had the honour to play against the former champion of the world, Argentina.That match was played on the famous Maracana Stadium. Besides Edin Dzeko, Asmir Begovic and the only goal scorer Vedad Ibisevic, the duel at the legendary stadium will be remembered by one beautiful Sarajevan, Ema Ruvic.A student of the Primary School “Isak Samokovlija” in Sarajevo, a fifth grade student then, was honoured to accompany our national representatives when they went out on the stadium.“I had the honour of meeting Edin Dzeko. I was a bit nervous, but he relaxed me with his friendly attitude. He took my hand and went out to the stadium with me. I was very happy that I had the opportunity to watch the match between BiH and Argentina, and I can say that those were the most beautiful five minutes of my life,” said young Ema Ruvic, four years after the match in Rio de Janeiro, which presented our country on the World Cup in 2014.Ema will graduate from the ninth grade in this Sarajevo school soon. Besides Dzeko, she also had the opportunity to meet the then selector Safet Susic and Vedad Ibisevic.“I had the desire to bring luck to Dzeko so that he scores a goal for Dragons, but Ibisevic managed to do it. I am very happy when I think about it today,” said Ema Ruvic, who will continue his studies in the Second Gymnasium.(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more

Exchange of data between registrar, GECOM can resolve list concerns – attorney

first_img“House-to-house” manoeuvre…Opposition threatens legal action to stop disenfranchisement…as GECOM meeting ends in drama over Chairman’s limiting agendaPeople’s Progressive Party nominated election’s Commissioner, Robeson Benn, has moved to the law to prevent house-to-house registration from denying a substantial bloc of citizens from exceeding their franchise, with his legal representative saying a court order will be sought if necessary.Legal storm clouds are gathering over the Guyana Elections CommissionIn a correspondence seen by Guyana Times, the Party threatened to move to the courts if the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) persists. Former Attorney General Anil Nandlall, who is representing Benn, explained in an interview with this publication that this could potentially disenfranchise overseas-based voters, who normally return home to exercise their franchise.“In relation to dead people, I concede readily that that process of removing dead persons from the list should be one that should be pursued, but that shouldn’t require house to house registration. That can easily be accomplished by an exchange of data between the registrar of deaths and the GECOM.”“Because the registrar of deaths will be able to say how many persons have been recorded as dead over the past few years… And that data can be juxtaposed against the list and those persons removed by a very simple engagement, with relative speed and ease in this technological age.”Nandlall explained that when GECOM staff go house to house and cannot find persons on the list living in Guyana, such persons will be de-registered. The former Attorney General noted that Articles 59 and 159 provide for everyone to vote at General and Regional Elections once they are qualified and registered.“What I have a problem with is the process that will remove persons on the list who are resident overseas,” he said, adding that Guyana’s Constitution does not require residency in Guyana as a qualification to be registered to vote. “Our Constitution is very clear. Once you are 18 years or over, Guyanese and registered, you can vote. So you have Guyanese citizens, thousands of them, who are registered but when this exercise is completed, they will not find themselves in the new list and they will become disqualified through no fault of their own.”Asked what legal remedies he will be seeking from the High Court, Nandlall said should GECOM push ahead and disregard the legal correspondence they will seek a legal order or injunction to stop the house-to-house exercise.Recently, former Minister of State, Joseph Harmon had said overseas-based Guyanese may lose out if they miss house-to-house registration. He had noted that they would not be included on the new list if they are not present to register.DramaEven as legal storm clouds gather over GECOM’s Secretariat, another statutory meeting ended in drama on Tuesday with Commissioners walking out complaining of attempts by GECOM Chairman, retired Justice James Patterson, to block discussions about criticism from the outside world against his tenure.In addition, the Opposition-nominated Commissioners complained that Patterson refused to permit discussions regarding the threat of legal proceedings against GECOM, as well as the ongoing legal proceedings at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), where the Commission was recently added as a party to the proceedings.“Chairman Patterson in the most autocratic manner was seemingly intent on only allowing continued discussion on “elections” arising out of house-to-house registration, a matter on which discussion ended abruptly at the last statutory meeting of Tuesday, March 26, 2019,” a statement from the PPP read. “It is evident that the Chairman in collusion with the Government-nominated Commissioners intended to avoid any references to the following matters.”“The scathing Editorial by Stabroek News in its April 1, 2019 edition, which exposed the Chairman’s preference and behaviour relating to the Vishnu Persaud matter which engaged the attention of the Ethnic Relations Commission;  a letter proposing legal proceedings, under the hand of Mohabir Anil Nandlall, attorney representing Commissioner Robeson Benn, requesting that GECOM… refrain from proceeding with this unlawful and unconstitutional exercise…,” that being house-to-house registration (and) the ongoing legal proceedings at the Caribbean Court of Justice, arising out of the No-confidence Motion.”The Party explained that in view of the Chairman’s attempts to avoid comments and to proceed with an agenda item it noted was not listed or agreed to, Commissioners Sase Gunraj and Benn walked out of the meeting in protest.last_img read more

Eatery manager worries about crime, crowding in poverty-marked area

first_imgCynthia Cisneros and her husband were working as veterinarians in a Guadalajara, Mexico, clinic when the economy crumbled in the early 1990s. Desperate to stay afloat, the couple immigrated legally to California a decade ago and rented a simple, two-bedroom apartment in Arleta for $800 a month. Cisneros landed a $4.25-an-hour job at a fast-food restaurant in Panorama City, while her husband juggled similar work and a second job as a valet parking attendant. “We came here to study something else, but my first opportunity was Carl’s Jr. I worked hard and it got better and better,” said Cisneros, now 39 and the manager of the local eatery, where she makes about $30,000 a year. But despite her husband’s seven-day work schedule, the couple still doesn’t make much more than $40,000 – just slightly more than average for the Panorama-Arleta community, according to the most recent Census Bureau figures. The Cisneroses are among an influx of immigrants in the San Fernando Valley and their economic situation highlights growing gaps that have begun to emerge among the region’s communities. Just two miles to the south of the Cisneros family – in Encino and Tarzana – the median household income is nearly $70,000. But the Cisneroses aren’t particularly bothered by their situation. They’ve worked hard to learn English by taking classes, watching television and asking co-workers for grammar advice. And they’ve saved enough money over the years to buy a couple of cars, take their 7-year-old son on outings to the beach and mountains, and buy an annual pass to Universal Studios. Cynthia Cisneros says it’s values that matter, not money, ethnic or cultural differences. “Maybe the people have money, but if they can’t think about the other person or feel about the other person, maybe that’s a problem, too,” she said. But the Cisneroses are concerned about what Cynthia describes as an erosion of the quality of life in her community. The Panorama City-Arleta area – where one in four people lives in poverty – has grown more crowded and traffic has worsened. While she’s satisfied with her son’s school, she worries about more crime, including robberies, auto thefts and hit-and-run crashes late at night. “Right now, I don’t really like living in the Valley,” she said. The couple has grown so frustrated that they even are considering moving to Ojai in Ventura County. Cisneros also is concerned about what she considers some people’s unfair and uninformed attitudes about Mexicans and other immigrants. She said her family contributes in many ways to the economy, including by paying their taxes, their bills and rent. “We don’t want anything for free,” Cisneros said. “We don’t do nothing bad. We’re good people. We work … We do everything.” [email protected] (818) 713-3731 Panorama City-Arleta Median household income: $37,354 Percent of people below poverty level: 23.4% Percent of renters: 52% Average household size: 3.8 Hispanic: 73.2% Non-Hispanic white: 8.9% Asian: 14.1%160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Georginio Wijnaldum insists Liverpool will learn from mistakes for next season

first_img The Reds have struggled against teams in the lower half of the table 1 Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is taking nothing for granted ahead of a crucial trip to West Ham but admits the mistakes they have made will not be repeated next season.The Reds’ league defeats this campaign have come against Burnley, Bournemouth, Swansea, Hull, Leicester, Crystal Palace – all teams who were in the lower half of the table when they played them.Those dropped 18 points look increasingly significant as Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the final two matches needing two wins to guarantee Champions League football next season.It is all the more frustrating because the Reds boast the best record against their top-six rivals but their place in the top four is now under serious threat from Arsenal and Manchester United, respectively four and five points behind with one match apiece in hand.Life has become far more difficult than it needed to be, with an unlikely title challenge foundering after a dreadful January, but Wijnaldum is confident it will all prove useful for next season.“In a year you can learn a lot,” said the Holland midfielder.“We are going to learn from the mistakes we made this season and we are going to take it to next season. It’s not going to happen to us again.”A trip to West Ham, a team Liverpool have not beaten in their last five meetings and who effectively ended Tottenham’s title challenge a week ago, poses another challenge for them.And with the recent defeat to Palace and the dire goalless draw against Southampton last weekend, Wijnaldum does not have to look too far for the warning signs.“Every opponent in the Premier League is a warning,” he added.“You saw with us. We played against Crystal Palace and we lost.“It doesn’t matter who you play – you can win against anyone, you can lose against anyone.“That is why I say I’m not really busy with winning a game, but more busy with a good performance.“If you are busy with a good performance, something you can control, then the chance to win the game is much bigger. That is the way I’m thinking.”last_img read more

COUNTDOWN TO CROKER: MCGUINNESS – “SUCCESS OF MINORS WILL BENEFIT SENIOR TEAM”

first_imgJim McGuinness has said the success the Donegal Minor team are currently enjoying under the stewardship of Declan Bonner will benefit the Donegal Senior team in the long run.On Sunday, Bonner will lead his side out on to Croke Park to face Dublin at 1.30pm in what is a curtain raiser to the senior match which starts at 3.30pm. The Donegal minors won the Ulster title in utterly convincing fashion over Armagh, and have been impressive all year.A number of players have caught the eye, and McGuinness reckons he could take four of the current panel into his senior ranks right away.McGuinness admitted his policy since he became manager was to take the best minor every year, which every year happened to be the captain of the minors.However, he’s admitted that he could take at least four players from this current crop of talented players. He also said the importance of winning an Ulster Title at minor level will also do so much to develop the players as they progress to U21 and Senior level.To watch the video simply click play and enjoy.COUNTDOWN TO CROKER: MCGUINNESS – “SUCCESS OF MINORS WILL BENEFIT SENIOR TEAM” was last modified: August 29th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:DDTVdonegaldublinJim McGuinnessMinorsnewsSportlast_img read more

Help save Donegal lives by walking from Darkness Into Light this May

first_imgResidents in Donegal have been urged to join the global fight against suicide and self-harm on May 11. Last year thousands of people registered to attend events around the county raising a total of €136,993 to support our vital services.This year almost 250,000 participants in over 200 venues across 19 countries and five continents will walk from Darkness Into Light. The event, organised by Pieta, is a global movement dedicated to ending suicide and supporting those who engage in self-harm.Speaking on this movement of hope, Marie Peelo, Deputy Director of Funding & Advocacy said: “From rural communities to major cities, suicide is an epidemic that affects all communities.“In 2017, one person a day died by suicide in Ireland – nobody is immune to suicide.“We want to live in a world where suicide is replaced by hope, where self-care replaces self-harm and where stigma is replaced by acceptance. “The only way we can tackle this crisis is together – in our communities, in our places of work, in the sports clubs we are part of. With the help of our community, we can help prevent suicide.”Since opening its doors 13 years ago, Pieta has heard painful truths from thousands of people who have come to the organisation at the point of suicidal crisis or actively engaging in self-harm, which is one person every 40 seconds.Worldwide, close to 800,000 people die due to suicide every year.Donegal walkers can register or find their nearest venue online at www.darknessintolight.ie.Help save Donegal lives by walking from Darkness Into Light this May was last modified: March 30th, 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

Bird Tricks

first_imgNews about feathered friends and flying wonders, and speculations about how they evolved.Flight physics: To avoid obstacles in flight, birds need just two postures, the Harvard Gazette says: the wings-overhead stretch, and the wings-tucked in position. This is “why birds don’t crash.” It sounds simple, but when you think how fast a pigeon can fly through jail bars without colliding, as the embedded video shows, it’s pretty nifty. Try getting a quad copter to do that.Chill out like a bird: Birds show “surprising resilience in the face of natural stresses,” PhysOrg says. The blue-footed boobies in the lead photo know a lot about stress out there on the Galapagos islands. Authors of a new book showed experimental evidence that stressed-out chicks do just fine as adults. It’s not clear what this has to do with Darwin, but one bird evolutionist thinks the study will help reorient research in “a vastly understudied area—the evolutionary interplay between early life conditions and phenotypic plasticity.” Whatever that gobbledygook means, it doesn’t sound like survival of the fittest. It sounds more like Lamarckism.Walking on water: You may have seen nature documentaries (as in Winged Migration) where western and Clark’s grebes do their stunning mating dance, leaping from their ducky position to a standing posture then running on top of the water for several seconds. Since they won’t do this in the lab, a Harvard team went to Oregon to figure out how they do it in the wild. Science Magazine says that studies of high-speed films showed “how the birds slap their lobed feet on the water, with all three forward-pointing toes splayed, as fast as 20 steps per second.” This is different from how the basilisk lizard (one of few vertebrates that can run on water) does it, but it is 1/10 the weight. The birds’ foot slapping, however, only accounts for 50% of the lift to keep them elevated, so more work will be needed to figure out the stunt.The bird bang theory: A biologist from Wake Forest University claims that “evolution is hard at work when it comes to the acrobatic courtship dances of a tropical bird species.” Matthew Fuxjager studies tropical birds named golden-collared manakins. He says, “Our results provide the first evidence that androgenic sensitivity in select parts of the neuro-motor system is an evolved mechanism to facilitate performance abilities and acrobatics in physically elaborate socio-sexual displays.” There are about 60 species of manakins, most that perform a complex dance for mating and rivalry. “The researchers hypothesized that evolution acts to help shape the mating display behavior by controlling androgen sensitivity in the avian wing muscles,” PhysOrg reports. But can testosterone alone account for the complex behaviors? Giving a gymnast a hormone shot will not make him do more complex moves, even if he gets a boost of energy; most likely, upsetting the balance will cause other health problems—possibly cancer. And how does the theory relate to the genetics of the bird? “Our current data support the hypothesis that sexual selection shapes levels of androgen receptors expressed in the forelimb skeletal muscles to help drive the evolution of adaptive motor abilities,” he explains. But again, hormone receptors don’t equate to choreography, any more than more lights create a ballet. Keep the funding coming; “He plans to continue to study how testosterone sensitivity and other aspects of the genetics of muscle physiology have evolved across species to develop these behaviors.”Feathered friends: Lastly, the University of Chicago provides tips on making your backyard a bird-friendly sanctuary. Advice includes: grow bird-friendly shrubs, install feeders and bird baths, and keep the cat inside.Adding evolutionary theory to bird watching is like adding an oil slick to a beach. It’s ugly, and it hurts the birds’ image. (Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Minnaar wins downhill World Champs

first_imgDress rehearsal victoryMost recently, he raced to victory on the Leogang course in the iXS European Downhill Cup in May, which served as a dress rehearsal for the World Championships. South African downhill mountain biking star Greg Minnaar claimed the biggest prize in the sport for the second time when he lifted the UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships in Leogang, Austria on Sunday. Home town victory?Questioned about the possibility of winning the World Championships title in his home city, Minnaar said: “It would be a nice way to end it, going onto my home track, to win there would be amazing. This is a track that I wanted to do well on as well, but I was thinking about that today. ‘This run was tough’“It’s been nine years and, man, this run was tough,” Minnaar said when interviewed on the track after his victory was confirmed. Poetry in motionMinnaar was up next and he was poetry in motion, his lanky frame making the technical sections look easy. 2 September 2012 South Africans 1. Greg Minnaar (RSA) 3:21.79 2. Gee Atherton (GBR) 3:22.37 3. Steve Smith (Can) 3:23.00 4. Michael Hannah (Aus) 3:23.93 5. Sam Hill (Aus) 3:25.19 6. Damien Spagnolo (Fra) 3:25.64 7. Florent Payet (Fra) 3:26.01 8. Brook MacDonald (NZ) 3:26.65 9. Markus Pekoll (Aut) 3:27.56 10. Marcelo Gutierrez Villegas (Col) 3:27.85 Graciously, he added: “I’m a bit bummed for Gwinny. He seemed to have a mechanical out there. I’m not quite sure what happened. It’s not exactly the best way for me to win, although I’d like to win. We’re all out there trying our best, we all have mechanicals from time to time, but it’s been nine years [since my first World Championship win], man!” Minnaar has won more World Cup podium places than any other rider in the history of the sport, but until Sunday he had won the World Championships only once previously, in Lugano, Switzerland in 2003. Now aged 30, the victory means the Pietermaritzburg local will get to defend his title in his home city in 2013. 19. Andrew Neethling 3:29.77 45. Johann Potgieter 3:34.55 90. Tiaan Odendaal 3:45.22 “Three in Maritzburg would be great, but right now I hardly can believe I won this today.” He was up and out of the saddle all the way down the mountain and 0.516 ahead of Atherton at both splits before sprinting over the line in 3:21.79 to move into the hot seat with only World Cup standings leader Aaron Gwin to come. The tension was high, but it ended in an anti-climax as Gwin suffered mechanical problems, which took him out of the running. “I had a lot of pressure today. I sat in my hotel room and I was super nervous. I got to the track and I calmed down, which is normally the reverse,” he admitted. The Leogang course certainly has some similarities to the Cascades downhill course in Pietermaritzburg, requiring a lot of hard pedalling in the middle section especially, and Minnaar had enjoyed success on both previously, so he would have known he had a good shot at winning in Austria. “You know my run. to be honest, I tried to nail that top section and I slid off a bridge and I lost a lot of speed onto the pedalling and I just knew I had to pedal hard, same as in Maritzburg, and I managed to come back. I couldn’t believe I crossed the line in first. Three-time world champion Sam Hill couldn’t unseat Smith and moved into third place behind the Canadian and Australia’s Mick Hannah with a time of 3:25.19. Next off, and the third last man to go, was Gee Atherton, the 2010 world champion. He looked smooth and pedalled strongly and was up at both check points before crossing the finishing line in 3:22.37 to snatch the lead from Smith. Peat went on to finish 38th, to match his age, Neethling ended 19th, and 110th. RESULTS Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

That was followed by fellow South African Andrew Neethling slipping on a high, banked corner while on a course-leading time. Then, Josh Bryceland, like Peat a Santa Cruz Syndicate team-mate, lost his front end and crashed when going down the mountain in the last 10 riders. On the hot seatAt the business end of the competition, Steve Smith was on the hot seat after clocking exactly three minutes and 23 seconds, with only four more riders to go. Back then, the riders were competing in team colours, while this time around they were wearing their national colours. And truth be told, as the time till Minnaar’s departure from the top of the mountain ticked down, there were some worrying omens for the tall South African.last_img read more

Money Monday

first_imgBy Barbara O’NeillHow can Personal Financial Management Program Staff help service members maximize that “new vehicle” purchase from deployment dollars?When some service members receive a large sum of money, they are tempted to spend it all on one large purchase like a new vehicle. Often it is hard to talk them out of this purchase. If it appears they are set on buying a car, you can still use this as a teachable moment. Teach them ways to make the most of this purchase. For example, explain how to research the best deals, the true cost of vehicles, and military discounts offered by various organizations. Often dealers have military discounts they don’t advertise, so service members need to ask.Invite the service members to consider taking out a small loan on the vehicle, thereby preserving some of their dollars. Using money saved to pay off the loan over the span of a year will add positive credit behavior to their credit report, resulting in a possible increase in their credit score.  For more information, refer to incharge.org/military-money/story/when-buying-a-car-dont.Browse more military personal finance blog posts and webinars by experts.Follow Dr. O’Neill on Twitter!This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on November 25, 2013.last_img read more

India 142/2 at stumps on Day 2 in Cape Town

first_imgSo far India have been playing their cards right in this deciding Test match against South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town. SCOREFirst the bowlers came good and then the batsmen did their part on Day 2 of the third and final Test on Monday.India opener Gautam Gambhir (65) and Sachin Tendulkar (49) were at the crease chipping away at South Africa’s first innings total of 362.There were initial hiccups in batting with Virender Sehwag getting out and Rahul Dravid falling short of his crease. But Gambhir along with Tendulkar steadied the India ship which was coasting along on 142/2 when proceedings came to an end on Day 2.Earlier, India quicks provided the required impetus to skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s plans of a series win by claiming wickets quickly and regularly.And it was S. Sreesanth who stood out with his impressive bowling finishing with a five-wicket haul.But trust Jacques Kallis to deliver the goods when the chips are down and he did just that on Monday scoring an impressive 161.The way he shaped his innings commands respect. In a way it dented the pride of India bowlers, who had claimed seasoned batsmen without much resistance.He put on a 52-run 10th wicket partnership with last man Lonwabo Tsotsobe (8 not out) that spanned across 15 overs. He farmed the stand in such a fashion that Tsotsobe faced just 28 balls in an hour that he stood at the crease supporting Kallis in his endeavour.This was before the India pacers got busy counting heads on the Newlands track.advertisementSreesanth did the maximum damage claiming three wickets in the day to increase his victims list to five since yesterday when he had claimed Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers.Continuing his good form on the second day, Sreesanth sent off Ashwell Prince on 47 with a perfect in-swinger that curved in to destroy his stumps. On the very next ball he sent home Mark Boucher without even letting him open his account. Deep in the first session, he accounted for tail-ender Morne Morkel.Zaheer Khan, who got the better of opposition skipper Graeme Smith on the first day, added Dale Styen’s wicket to his list of victims before claiming Kallis to the end of the South Africa innings.Ishant Sharma finished with two wickets.last_img read more

Steve Smith relieved as Brendon McCullum retires from international cricket

first_imgThe impact of Brendon McCullum’s retirement from international cricket on Wednesday was summarized, from an opponent’s perspective, by Australian captain Steve Smith, who didn’t know whether to be happy or sad.On one hand, Smith felt a hazy relief that he may never again have to contend with the challenge of containing McCullum, who at his best has been one of cricket’s genuine match-winners, explosive and unpredictable. (McCullum looks forward to doing nothing after calling it quits) McCullum demonstrated that trait in the second test at Christchurch – his final match – when, with New Zealand’s first innings ailing at 32-3, he struck the fastest century in test cricket history by reaching triple figures from 54 balls.At the same time, Smith couldn’t hide an indefinable sadness – the sense that with McCullum’s international retirement after a career of 14 years something rare and precious had been lost from the game. (Vivian Richards lauds Brendon McCullum after fastest Test ton in swansong)Asked about not having to face McCullum again, Smith said “I’d say it’s pleasing but very disappointing as well.”Australia won the series 2-0 and regained the No. 1 test ranking, ending New Zealand’s unbeaten run in test series at home since 2012 in a slightly disappointing finish for McCullum. (Steve Smith wants Australia to keep enjoying life at the top) “Brendon’s been an absolutely inspirational cricketer and leader for New Zealand,” Smith said. “I think any captain … you want to change the way your team plays for the better and I think Brendon has certainly done that. What he’s done for the game is absolutely outstanding.”advertisementWest Indies great Viv Richards, who held the fastest test century record at 56 deliveries, touched on that same feeling.”If there was going to be an individual who you would’ve liked to have surpassed whatever you would’ve achieved in life, certainly it would be you,” Richards told McCullum, adding that the way the New Zealander approached the game was attractive for crowds.That summed up one of the main aspects of McCullum’s career, especially in its late stages when he found ways to express himself and demonstrate his talent in all three forms of the game.McCullum’s name on a teamsheet was enough to bring fans to games. In his presence there was a sense of delightful unpredictability.It could backfire at times, most notably in last year’s World Cup final against Australia when he charged the first three deliveries of the match from Mitchell Starc, missed all three and was bowled. New Zealand never recovered from that and Australia dominated the final.But when he did come off, and he did in so many forums, it became a badge of honor to fans to have been there.McCullum in full flight with the bat was a glorious thing; a chance to watch at work one of the great and damaging strokemakers the game has produced. He set alight the Indian Premier League with an innings of 158 in its opening game and retires as the only player to have scored two centuries in Twenty20 internationals.It was typical of McCullum and his sense of occasion that he made a mark even in his last international match with a test century of world record quality. But nor could he be pigeonholed as a slogger; while his stroke play in limited-overs formats could be innovative, he also had technique. He scored 12 test centuries and became the first New Zealander to score a test triple century when he reached 302 against India in 2014.As a young cricketer he was thought somewhat callow: talented but immature and often unreliable. But he matured into a player whose leadership and character were responsible for a transformation of New Zealand cricket.He was wracked by injuries, notably a chronic back problem which forced him to relinquish the wicketkeeping gloves, but he didn’t miss a single test from his debut in 2004 until retiring after his 101st test match.His individual feats thrilled fans but McCullum would hold that his greatest achievement came through his captaincy of the New Zealand team, though his accession to the role was controversial.He started as captain in the face of hostility after his popular predecessor Ross Taylor was fired. The beginning was unpromising but McCullum quickly swayed his teammates, then fans. The steady stream of success New Zealand began to enjoy was one factor but it was the style of McCullum’s captaincy that attracted support.He was daring, aggressive and constantly innovative. He had the ability to make his players achieve things they might not have dared believe they could achieve. And the cricket world noted the approach of the New Zealand team under McCullum: the way in which they appeared to play with joy, with decency and respect for their opponents.advertisementKane Williamson, who succeeds McCullum as New Zealand captain, described the philosophy in a recent column.”Something Brendon believed more and more was that runs and wickets were cool,” Williamson wrote, “but being a good person throughout was the most important thing.”last_img read more

West Indies coach Stuart Law suspended for 2 ODIs for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

first_imgWest Indies coach Stuart Law has been handed a two-game ban, a 100 per cent fine on his match fee and three demerit points for breaching ICC’s Code of Conduct during day three of the second Test between West Indies and India, the cricket governing body announced on Tuesday.The ban comes into play because his accumulated demerit points reached four within a 24-month period and it means that he will be suspended for his side’s first two ODIs against India in Guwahati and Visakhapatnam respectively.The Australian was found guilty of breaching Level 2 Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “Public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an International Match or any Player, Player Support Personnel, Match Official or team participating in any International Match, irrespective of when such criticism or inappropriate comment is made.”As Law had received a 25 per cent fine and one demerit point during the final day’s play in the Dominica Test against Pakistan in May 2017, with the addition of these three demerit points, he has reached the threshold of four demerit points, which, pursuant to article 7.6 of the Code, have now been converted into two suspension points.Therefore, Law has been suspended from the 21 and 24 October ODIs against India.The incident on Sunday afternoon happened when Stuart Law, following the dismissal of Kieran Powell, went to the TV umpire’s room and made inappropriate comments. He then walked to the fourth umpire’s area and, in the presence of the players, again directed inappropriate comments at the fourth official.advertisementOn Monday, Law admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Ian Gould, third umpire Nigel Llong, all from the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Umpires, and fourth official Nitin Menon.Law, who took charge of West Indies in February 2017, will leave his role after the tours of India and Bangladesh to take charge of English county side Middlesex in January.last_img read more

Fifa’s ethics investigator does not have skills for job, says damning report

first_imgReuse this content Football politics Read more Fifa did not respond to this, the assessment of Rojas’s suitability or questions about the progress of investigations, but issued a furious statement attacking Brasseur’s objectivity. A spokesman emphasised that Fifa “has fully independent judicial bodies in place, state of the art checks and balances and advanced compliance and oversight mechanisms”.The statement said: “All these pioneering reforms are not properly acknowledged in the current report and it is unfortunate that the author chose not to distinguish between the new Fifa and the old one, creating a misleading view of the current reality based on personal opinions and rumours, rather than on a thorough analysis and objective facts.”Brasseur told the Guardian she was not surprised by this response, saying that she did not have “a good feeling” about the will at Fifa to implement the reforms.“I think it is a systemic problem at Fifa,” she said. “Those who are there want to stay there, because it is a marvellous job, and very well paid of course. They aren’t happy if you criticise.” Share via Email Fifa removed investigator on trail of Russia World Cup chief Vitaly Mutko Share on Facebook Share on Messenger Fifa’s desperate dependence on Russia exposed in flimsy response to IOC ban Fifa The suitability of Fifa’s ethics investigator to do the job has been seriously called into question in a severely critical report on football’s world governing body’s governance under the presidency of Gianni Infantino. The Council of Europe report states that María Claudia Rojas, the Colombian judge appointed in May to chair Fifa’s ethics committee’s investigatory branch, does not have the requisite experience of conducting criminal or financial investigations.“Also,” the report sates, “her lack of knowledge of English and French is a major obstacle, as almost all documents [relevant to the investigations] are in one of these two languages. This is not merely a factor that risks slowing her down in her examination of case files … but it also means – and this is much more problematic – that she is more dependent on the [Fifa] secretariat that assists her and that it is objectively difficult for her to enter into confidential contacts with witnesses or experts.”center_img Share on Twitter Gianni Infantino Share on LinkedIn Read more Topics Share on WhatsApp Share on Pinterest news Written by Anne Brasseur, a Luxembourg Democratic Party representative and former president of the Council of Europe’s parliamentary assembly, the report questions whether Rojas is making progress with investigations. Brasseur concludes generally that Fifa’s summary removal of the ethics and governance committee chairmen in May undermined the independence of the newly reformed integrity procedures.This stinging assessment comes as Infantino’s Fifa is failing to act on the revelations of Russian state-sponsored doping which finally led to the International Olympic Committee banning Russia from the forthcoming Winter Olympics and a life ban for Vitaly Mutko, the deputy prime minister for sport, tourism and youth policy. Mutko’s continuing tenure as president of the Russian football association and organising committee for next year’s World Cup presents Infantino’s Fifa with its clearest test of integrity, since the multiple bribery and financial corruption scandals which led to the fall of the former president Sepp Blatter.Rojas is responsible for investigating Mutko and any other implications for football, including alleged doping of Russian players, arising out of the two reports by professor Richard McLaren for the World Anti-Doping Agency, and further damning evidence gathered by the Schmid Commission for the IOC. Fifa has offered no news of whether any investigation is ongoing or making progress, seven months since Rojas was appointed after the removal of the Swiss prosecutor Cornel Borbély as ethics committee investigatory chairman, without notice.Infantino presented Rojas’s appointment then as a positive move towards greater gender and geographic diversity and the Fifa council, on which the English FA’s representative David Gill sits as a Fifa vice-president, unanimously supported Borbély’s replacement by her.Borbély and Hans-Joachim Eckert, the German judge whose tenure chairing the ethics committee’s adjudicatory branch, which determines sanctions, was also summarily ended, warned then that hundreds of cases were ongoing and the fight against wrongdoing and corruption had been “incapacitated”. One of those investigations was into Mutko’s alleged involvement in Russia’s systematic doping of athletes, which Borbély had begun, and which is known to include a huge volume of documents in English, including 915 already translated from Russian for McLaren.In the summer, it was revealed that Borbély had at the time of his removal two ethics investigations ongoing against Infantino, one into complaints that he interfered in the election of a new president at the Confederation of African Football, the other for allegedly under-declaring the budget he was given by Uefa, where he was previously general secretary, to campaign for the Fifa presidency.Brasseur interviewed Borbély, Eckert, the ousted governance committee chair Miguel Maduro, Infantino, the Fifa general secretary Fatma Samoura, Rojas and other key people. She criticises Rojas for having stated publicly after her appointment that there were no ongoing investigations into Infantino. Brasseur found that Rojas had made that statement “before learning about all of the files, including the more sensitive files that … Mr Borbély still had in his possession”.Infantino acknowledged to Brasseur that he had sought in March to intervene with the decision of Maduro’s governance committee to bar Mutko from the Fifa council because of Fifa’s rules that members must be politically neutral. Brasseur’s report confirms what Maduro has said previously, that Infantino believed any action against Mutko would have “potential consequences for the organisation of the 2018 World Cup in Russia”.Brasseur says of Rojas, and Vassilios Skouris, who was appointed to replace Eckert, that they are “two professionals of the highest level and of the highest integrity”. However of Rojas’s suitability for the investigative role, she says the work “calls for experience in the field of criminal investigations, especially financial investigations, which Ms Rojas does not have. She does not really meet the profile of a ‘prosecutor’.”Brasseur cites her “surprise” in the report, which will be debated by the parliamentary assembly in January, that Rojas has not even met Borbély, saying that “is not very effective” for the management of the investigation files.Describing as “regrettable” the abrupt removal of Borbély, Eckert and Maduro, and previously Domenico Scala’s resignation as chair of Fifa’s audit and compliance committee in protest at the Fifa council being given the right to fire independent chairmen, Brasseur concludes: “Regretfully, the general feeling is that Fifa council and Mr Infantino in particular wished to get rid of persons who might have embarrassed them.”last_img read more

Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL image leak shows it will come with 3.5mm headphone jack and no notch, key specs detailed earlier

first_imgGoogle Pixel 3a and 3a XL image leak shows it will come with 3.5mm headphone jack and no notch, key specs detailed earlierOfficial renders of Google’s Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have been leaked, clearly showing that these cheaper Pixels will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack and screens that have full fat bezels instead of camera cutouts or water-drop notch.advertisement India Today Tech New DelhiApril 19, 2019UPDATED: April 22, 2019 08:19 IST Image Courtesy: SlashLeaksHIGHLIGHTSThe Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL is expected to launch on May 7, when the Google IO kicks-off.It is expected that the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL will come similar cameras that are there in the more expensive Pixel 3 phones.The hardware in the Pixel 3a will be more toned down, and screen size is expected to be smaller.It is expected that in a few weeks from now on May 7 Google will announce the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL as it kicks of the Google IO in San Francisco. Now ahead of the launch fresh renders of the upcoming Pixel phones have been leaked, showing the devices in their full and revealing glory. The Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL are expected to be the cheaper variants of the existing Pixel 3 phones. They are likely to come with the toned down hardware except the camera system, which is the highlight of the current Pixel 3 phones and which Google is likely to keep same in the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL.But the leaked renders show that there are changes. It is clear from the Pixel 3a renders that the new Pixel phones will sport the 3.5mm headphone jack, a feature that Google earlier removed from the more expensive Pixel 3. Currently a number of high-end premium phones don’t come with the 3.5mm headphone jack. The renders also show that the Pixel 3a will have rather thick bezels, similar to what we saw in the Pixel 2 in 2017. Currently, the Pixel 3 sports full bezels, albeit somewhat slim, whereas the Pixel 3 Xl comes with cutout notch that houses two front cameras. The Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL will both have thick bezels.The renders also show that the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL will have single front camera. It has been rumoured that this will be the same 8-megapixel camera with wide-angle lens that is part of the front camera system in the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL.advertisementWhat else do we know about the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. A lot actually because there have been a number of leaks.– The Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor. They are likely to come with 4GB RAM.– The Pixel 3a, which is smaller, will come with a 5.6-inch screen with resolution of 2220×1080 pixels. Surprisingly, the bigger Pixel 3a XL with a 6-inch OLED screen, is likely to sport lower resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels.– The Pixel 3a is going to have a 3000 mAh battery while the Pixel 3a XL will come with 3400 mAh battery.– The Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL will come with same primary camera that is inside the Pixel 3. This means the same 12-megapixel sensor, and possibly the same excellent images for which Pixel phones are kind of famous now.– Both the upcoming Pixel phones will come with 64GB internal storage, support for eSIM and squeezable frame (something we don’t need but Google insists on it apparently).Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL India price and launchWhile the global launch of the Pixel 3a is on May 7, the India launch will be likely after a few weeks but possibly the same month. Currently there is no word about the India price of these two phones, but there are rumours about the global launch of the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL and that also gives a hint to the India prices of these two phones.If you were expecting that these are going to be the “cheap” Google Pixel phones, tone down your expectations. Compared to the existing Pixel 3 phones, the Pixel 3a will be relatively affordable but it won’t be cheap. The global price of the Pixel 3a has been rumoured to around $500, and hence it could be priced in India around Rs 40,000. The Pixel 3a XL price in India could be around Rs 50,000 given that it its global price is expected to be around $650.ALSO READ: | Google could launch Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL at Google I/O 2019ALSO READ: | Google Senior VP teases photo from unreleased smartphone, could be Pixel 3aALSO READ: | Google Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL price leaks, may compete with OnePlus 7 in IndiaGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Not Your Father’s Overcoat: How To Pick The Right Jacket For Every Occasion

first_img Everlane Wants You to Have a Daily Uniform to Make Dressing Easier Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App Image courtesy of Laura Bittner via Creative Commons. Editors’ Recommendations How to Transition Your Wardrobe to Fall center_img Why Your Desk Chair Matters and the 9 Best Ones to Boost Your Productivity How to Choose the Right Dress Shirt Gone are the days when men would go out into the world swimming in fabric. Raglan sleeves, billowing bodices, rain jackets over suits, and dusters down to the ankles have lost favor with the fashion gods—and thank goodness for that. The age of the well-fitting, simple, clean line-dominated coat is upon us. Whether you’re looking for a casual bomber for a guys night at the bar or a nice overcoat for date night, the possibilities are endless according to Brian Hathaway, a style expert at Mario’s in Portland, OR.“Our philosophy is that you can’t have too much outerwear,” Hathaway says. Men’s outerwear is experiencing a renaissance at the moment.Bombers and parkas and great coats, oh my. Whether you want something dressy or casual, functional or fashionable—or both!—now is a great time to go out and enjoy all the outerwear the world has to offer.  There is a jacket for every occasion, and The Manual is here to help you figure out what to wear.LengthThe general rule according to Hathaway is: the longer the coat, the dressier the occasion.While short overcoats were in vogue for a few years, length is making a comeback.These overcoats aren’t your dad’s dusters, however. A properly fitted overcoat should fall just above the knee whether you’re short or tall. There’s room to play with this length if you so choose, but taller gentlemen be warned that anything that hits mid-thigh might make you look oversized, and shorter gents, avoid anything below the knee. Parkas and other rain jackets look best when they fall somewhere between just below the buttocks and just above mid-thigh.Bombers and other short coats should hit just above the derrière or, at the longest, mid-butt.BodiceWhile this is largely dependent on the kind of coat you’re looking for—bombers and track jackets, for instance, tend to have fuller bodices—straight silhouettes are universally flattering. Hathaway says to look for a jacket that fits comfortably through the waist but doesn’t pull. “While you don’t want too much fabric, which overwhelms, you don’t want a skinny fit either.” You should be able to move comfortably in your coat without too much excess fabric, though keep in mind how many layers you plan to wear underneath. If you’re still confused about the right balance between a clean fit and a skinny fit, use the X test for suits. If the jacket pulls at the fastening point, it’s too tight.“The straight silhouette just gives a clean finish and a modern look,” Hathaway says.While tailoring is an option, Hathaway says, you want to get as close a fit off the rack as possible.Related: TGIF Shopping: Norwegian Wool’s Fall Collection Is Here To Warm Your ChillSleeves And ShouldersPay attention to the sleeves of a jacket, and it’ll make the difference between looking dapper and looking like you’re playing dress-up. Hathaway says the sleeve should hit about an inch above the V of your hand. Anything longer, and you’ll look undersized; anything shorter, and you’ll look like you’ve squeezed into a child’s coat.Look for how the shoulder fits as well. You want the shoulder of your jacket to be sharp. Avoid jackets with shoulders that extend more than half an inch to an inch past your actual shoulder. Again, this is dependent upon how much you’ll be layering underneath. The general rule is that you want the shoulder to have a close, sharp fit without any pull. For nicer overcoats, beware raglan sleeves. While not always the case—The Manual always urges you to use your own judgment—the diagonal seam can make the shoulder look shapeless and sloppy.DetailsHathaway says details are getting cleaner and sharper on coats. While there’s room for the occasional flare, for the most part coats are dark, clean, and simple—no more superfluous zippers or piled-on pockets.“Less detail is better,” Hathaway says. “It’s more modern, and it looks better on everyone.” Details like spread collars, shearling, or accent colors—burgundy is our favorite right now—are visually appealing yet subtle. That’s not to say you should avoid fun details if they speak to you. It’s all fair game as long as it doesn’t overwhelm.Hathaway says that he’s seen a lot of really great reversible jackets come through Mario’s as well: one side is a softer fabric, like wool, and the other is nylon. Reversible jackets are chameleons—they look good on every occasion.One of the best parts about shopping for a coat in 2016? Technological advances.“Technology has changed the way we shop for coats,” Hathaway says. Cashmere is no longer reserved for dry days, for example. Now you can buy water resistant cashmere and look sharp in any weather. No matter which way you cut it or what you’re looking for—whether a nice leather jacket for the weekend or a cashmere great coat for a night on the town—as long as you follow our fit guide, you won’t go wrong.last_img read more

Team Swachh Uses Cricket To Take On Open Defecation In India

first_imgICC Cricket For Good, UNICEF and the Board of Control for Cricket in India, along with cricketers from 16 teams in the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 have joined forces to educate children on sanitation and toilet use, as one essential step towards ending open defecation in India.More than 564 million Indians still defecate in the open – the largest number of people in any country in the world and half the global total. Almost 1 in 10 of the 1.2 million children under 5 years old who die every year in the country succumb to diarrhoea, which is linked to poor water, hygiene and sanitation. Some 40 per cent of the country’s children are stunted – chronically malnourished – a condition which is linked to open defecation.
 
The Team Swachh campaign aims to use the vast reach, appeal and power of cricket in India to build a social movement for toilet use, especially among children, and to promote messages on health, sanitation and hygiene.In specially designed Team Swachh cricket clinics set up in the stadia where the WT20 competition will be played, cricketers from participating teams will coach children about the importance of handwashing and using toilets.“Open defecation affects every aspect of a child’s life putting them at risk of stunting and exposing them to avoidable diseases,” said UNICEF India Representative Louis George Arsenault. “The aim is to harness the enormous popularity and appeal of cricket in this country to spread the word about why everyone should use a toilet. We can achieve this if we come together as a team – then we will see real progress.”

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar emphasized the need for team play. “Ending open defecation and achieving sanitation for all in India takes a genuine team effort in which all relevant actors – from the Government to the people practicing open defecation, from role models to international development partners – play together as one team,” he said.Speaking at the launch, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said ICC was committed to working with UNICEF to help improve the health, education, nutrition, and protection of children. Globally, ICC and UNICEF will engage the broader cricketing community to empower children and adolescents. Under the umbrella of Team UNICEF, UNICEF continues to use the power of sport to change the lives of children.The Team Swachh activities have already started. During the 3,000 km ICC WT20 Host City Tour in February – March, disadvantaged children chosen by local NGOs in eight cities joined Team Swachh. They met cricketing heroes like Yuvaraj Singh, Venkatesh Prasad, Umesh Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Manoj Tiwari, Rishi Dhawan, Gurpreet Singh Mann, Pawan Negi, Sameer Dighe, Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Shubhlakshmi Sharma and Diana Edulji. These prominent cricketers demonstrated handwashing, played cricket and toilet-themed cricket games, and reached out to urban and rural populations with basic hygiene messages.last_img read more

20 January 2011Rising opium prices may encourage farmers in Afghanistan to plant more of the narcotic crop, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said in a survey released today, warning that the higher prices could reverse recent gains in the fight against drug production in the Asian country. Rising opium prices may encourage farmers in Afghanistan to plant more of the narcotic crop, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said in a survey released today, warning that the higher prices could reverse recent gains in the fight against drug production in the Asian country.The 2010 Afghanistan Opium Survey says that the soaring prices are the result of market speculation that there will be shortages because of the opium blight that reduced production by half last year, and ongoing military operations which have created uncertainty among opium farmers regarding future cultivation.“There is cause for concern. The market responded to the steep drop in opium production with an equally dramatic jump in the market price to more than double 2009 levels,” said Yury Fedotov, the Executive Director of UNODC.“We cannot continue business as usual,” he said, noting that the prices were rising again after a steady decline from 2005 to 2009. “If this cash bonanza lasts, it could effectively reverse the hard-won gains of recent years.”The cause of the decline in production was a naturally occurring plant disease that ravaged the crop in Afghanistan’s major opium poppy-growing provinces of Helmand and Kandahar.Poppy-growing households have seen a cash windfall. In 2010, the average farm-gate price of dry opium at harvest time was $169 per kilogram – a 164 per cent increase over 2009, when the price was $64 per kilo.Despite the drop in production, the gross income per hectare of opium cultivated increased by 36 per cent to $4,900. The average annual income of opium-growing households in 2009 was 17 per cent higher than for households that had stopped opium cultivation.However, the dramatic opium price increases at the local level did not translate into similar price increases in neighbouring countries, according to the UNODC report. Afghan traffickers are heavily involved in shipping opiates – morphine and heroin – abroad, notably to Iran and Pakistan, and to a lesser extent, Central Asia.As a result of falling production and stable cross-border prices, funding from the opium economy to Afghan criminal groups halved in 2010. The total value of exported opium and heroin was $1.4 billion, compared with $2.9 billion in 2009 – a 50 per cent drop. The gross export value in 2010 amounted to 11 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), compared to 26 per cent in 2009.On the positive side, rural development has encouraged the cultivation of licit crops, and this year, a distinct correlation was seen between the provision of agricultural assistance and a drop in opium cultivation.Giving farmers access to markets also helped them shift away from opium poppy cultivation. In villages located close to agricultural markets, farmers planted less poppy crop than in those that had no access to markets.“We encourage donors and the Afghan community to continue to invest in alternative livelihood programmes and increase market access for farmers. But security, stability and an environment free of corruption remain the key elements to making such initiatives effective and sustainable,” said Mr. Fedotov. read more

Microsoft gives free month of Xbox Live after Cloud Save outage

first_imgThe most common saying by those who are against putting your whole life “in the cloud” is that if anything goes wrong on the providers end, you’re left with nothing. This was certainly the case last week as many Xbox Live users were unable to access their saved games for a couple of days. In response to the outage, Microsoft has offered a free month of service to everyone that was affected. Microsoft’s Cloud Save feature is isolated from all of their other services, offering users the ability to save their games online instead of on their HDD. This is great for users who purchased the low storage versions of the Xbox 360 consoles that came out in the last hardware refresh. When the Cloud Save feature went down, none of Microsoft’s other cloud based services were affected. Additionally, you could still download the save stated and put them on your Xbox, so long as you had room on your HDD to store the save. It would up being a minor inconvenience at best for most users, but because it was out for nearly two whole days it left many shaken in their faith that the service was something worth using. Coupled with the free month of Xbox Live Gold for anyone who was affected, XBL general manager Alex Garden assured everyone that a thorough post mortem would be done to prevent this sort of thing from happening again in the future. Xbox Live has always been a fairly sturdy service, and of the few outages that have happened since the creation of the service, never has the entire thing been down for particularly long. This two day outage for a relatively new feature is one of the longest outages that any part of Xbox Live has ever suffered, and the team at Microsoft seems to be responding in the best way possible to assure it doesn’t happen again.Via The Vergelast_img read more

Keylor Navas on Real Madrid future Im calm I have two

first_imgReal Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas insists that he is “calm” over his future, despite reports suggesting that he could soon be dropped in favour of Thibaut Courtois’ arrival from Chelsea this summerNavas has been the first-choice at the Santiago Bernabeu for the past three years but, in that period, he has often been on the receiving end of criticism and uncertainty over his future.Following Real’s failed attempts to sign either David de Gea and Alisson from Manchester United and AS Roma respectively, the Spanish giants have now reportedly turned their attention to Chelsea’s unsettled number one goalkeeper Courtois.But after three years of constant rumours, Navas has evidently learned to just focus on himself.“I’m happy, the truth is that I’m very thankful to God because these are incredible opportunities,” said the 31-year-old, as stated on Marca.“I have all the hope in the world, just like in my first season.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We’re going to work hard, putting effort in every day and we’ll keep enjoying what it is to be at Real Madrid.”When asked if he could be leaving Real this summer, Navas answered: “I’m calm, I have two more years on my contract, what I have to put my mind and energy into is how to improve every day, the effort that I have to put in,”“I have to enjoy every moment, we will see what happens in the future, but that doesn’t mean stop enjoying, I’m calm and I feel good.“I still have the same hope and excitement, to be competitive, to always want to win, it’s something you can never lose.”After joining Real from fellow La Liga side Levante in 2014, Navas has gone on to make 141 appearances in all competitions for the Champions League holders.last_img read more

20182019new yearNew Years Eve

first_img 2018|2019|new year|New Year’s Eve Fireworks fill Sydney Harbour in Sydney, Australia. (Brendan Esposito/AAP via AP)An estimated million people crowded Sydney Harbor as Australia’s largest city rang in the new year with a spectacular, soul-tinged fireworks celebration.One of the most complex displays in Australia’s history included gold, purple and silver fireworks pulsating to the tune of ”(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” made famous by Aretha Franklin, who died in August. The show used 8.5 tons of fireworks and featured more than 100,000 pyrotechnic effects.Earlier, a thunderstorm drenched tens of thousands of people as they gathered for the traditional display, creating a show of its own with dozens of lightning strikes.Police said they took precautions to prevent any terrorist attack, but assured revelers there was no specific threat.More than 1 billion people around the world were expected to watch the fireworks on television.In Melbourne, 14 tons of fireworks deployed on the ground and on roofs of 22 buildings produced special effects including flying dragons. In Brisbane, an estimated 85,000 people watched as fireworks exploded from five barges moored on the Brisbane River.THE UNITED NATIONSU.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued a bleak New Year’s message that called climate change an existential threat and warned that “it’s time to seize our last best chance.” He noted growing intolerance, geo-political divisions and inequality, resulting in people “questioning a world in which a handful of people hold the same wealth as half of humanity.”“But there are also reasons for hope,” he said. “As we begin this New Year, let’s resolve to confront threats, defend human dignity and build a better future — together.”SOUTH KOREAA woman prays at the Jogyesa Buddhist temple in Seoul, South Korea. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)After an eventful year that saw three inter-Korean summits and the easing of tensions over North Korea’s nuclear program, South Koreans enter 2019 with hopes that the hard-won detente will expand into a stable peace.Thousands of South Koreans were expected to fill the streets of the capital, Seoul, for a traditional bell-tolling ceremony near City Hall to usher in the new year. Dignitaries picked to ring the old Bosingak bell at midnight include famous surgeon Lee Guk-jong, who successfully operated on a North Korean soldier who escaped to South Korea in 2017 in a hail of bullets fired by his comrades.Elsewhere, about 10,000 people were expected to attend the tolling of a “peace bell” at Imjingak, a pavilion near the border with North Korea.NORTH KOREALeader Kim Jong Un will keep North Korea watchers busy on New Year’s Day, when he is expected to give his annual address laying out the country’s priorities for the year ahead. The speech is often the best gauge of what the North Korean leadership is focused on and what tone it will take in its dealings with the outside world.Kim’s speech it will be parsed carefully for clues about his thinking on denuclearization talks with Washington and a second summit with President Donald Trump, relations with South Korea, and North Korea’s efforts to get out from under international sanctions as it tries to build its domestic economy.In his New Year’s speech this past year, Kim proposed talks with South Korea to reduce tensions and said the North would be willing to participate in South Korea’s Winter Olympics, setting off a series of summits with the South and the U.S.CHINANew Year’s Eve isn’t celebrated that widely in mainland China, where the lunar New Year in February is a more important holiday, but countdown events were being held in major cities and some of the faithful headed to Buddhist temples for bell-ringing and prayers.The city of Beijing was holding a gala with VIP guests at the main site of the 2008 Summer Olympics. The event looked ahead to the 2022 Winter Games, which also will be held in the Chinese capital.Additional police were deployed in parts of Shanghai, where a New Year’s Eve stampede in 2014 killed 36 people. In Beijing, outdoor revelers had to brave temperatures well below freezing.President Xi Jingping, in a message broadcast at the top of the evening news, outlined the country’s achievements over the past year and said that by hosting a series of multinational meetings in 2018, “we have put forward China’s proposals and sent out China’s voice.”In Hong Kong, festive lights on the city’s iconic skyscrapers provided the backdrop for a fireworks, music and light show over Victoria Harbor on a chilly evening. About 300,000 people were expected to line the waterfront.THAILANDWorshippers pray in coffins during a ceremony at the Takien temple in Bangkok, Thailand. (AP Photo/Sakchai lalit)While many celebrate New Year’s Eve with fireworks, hundreds of Thais traveled to Takien Temple in a suburb of Bangkok to lie inside coffins for traditional funeral rituals. Participants believe the ceremony — symbolizing death and rebirth — helps rid them of bad luck and allows them to be born again for a fresh start in the new year.Participants held flowers and incense in their hands as monks covered them with pink sheets and chanted prayers for the dead.“It wasn’t scary or anything. It is our belief that it will help us get rid of bad luck and bring good fortune to our life,” said Busaba Yookong, who came to the temple with her family.Bangkok is filled with modern glitzy malls and high-rise buildings, but superstitious beliefs still hold sway in many aspects of Thai society.PHILIPPINESDozens of people have been injured by firecrackers ahead of New Year’s Eve, when many across the Philippines set off powerful firecrackers in one of Asia’s most violent celebrations despite a government scare campaign and threats of arrests.The Department of Health said it has recorded more than 50 firecracker-caused injuries in the last 10 days, which is expected to increase overnight when Filipinos usher in 2019 with a bang. Although still a concern, the figure is significantly lower than a year ago, partly because fewer Filipinos have purchased firecrackers due to hard economic times.Officials have urged centralized fireworks displays to discourage wild and sometimes fatal merry-making. The notorious tradition, worsened by celebratory gunfire that turned deadly, stems from a Chinese-influenced belief that noise drives away evil and misfortune.JAPANJapanese usually welcome the New Year with a visit to a nearby temple or shrine, but some 30,000 people at Saitama Super Arena did it with Floyd Mayweather. The American boxing legend soundly defeated his opponent, Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, in the first round of what was billed as three rounds of entertainment with no official record, meaning both fighters still retain their undefeated tallies. “I told Tenshin to hold your head up high,” Mayweather said of his advice after the bout. Nasukawa was floored three times in the first round, and although he kept getting up, teetering, his father in the corner threw in the towel.FRANCEHundreds of thousands of Parisians and tourists are expected to gather on the famed Champs-Elysees avenue to celebrate New Year’s Eve under heavy security.Anti-government protesters from the “yellow vest” movement have issued calls on social media for “festive” demonstrations on the famed avenue.Paris police have set up a security perimeter in the area, with bag searches, a ban on alcohol and traffic restrictions. The Interior Ministry said Sunday that the heavy security measures are needed because of a “high terrorist threat” and concerns about “non-declared protests.”President Emmanuel Macron is to give his traditional New Year address to briefly lay out his priorities for 2019, as some “yellow vest” protesters angry over high taxes and his pro-business policies plan to continue their demonstrations in coming weeks.Before midnight, a light show illustrating the theme of brotherhood is to take place on the Arc de Triomphe monument at the top of the Champs-Elysees.NEW YORK CITYThe New Year’s Eve ball is seen in New York’s Times Square. (AP Photo/Julie Walker)Snoop Dogg, Sting and Christina Aguilera will welcome 2019 in a packed Times Square along with revelers from around the world who come to see the traditional crystal ball drop.Spectators are expected to start assembling early in the afternoon for the made-for-TV extravaganza. The celebration will take place under tight security, with partygoers checked for weapons and then herded into pens, ringed by metal barricades, where they wait for the stroke of midnight. by The Associated Press Posted Dec 31, 2018 3:25 am PDT Last Updated Dec 31, 2018 at 9:01 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Revelers say hello to 2019, goodbye to an unsettling year Revelers around the globe are bidding a weary farewell Monday to an unsettling year filled with challenges to many of the world’s most basic institutions, including politics, trade, alliances and religion.Here’s a look at how people are ushering in the new year:KIRIBATIThe Pacific island nation of Kiribati was the first in the world to welcome the new year, greeting 2019 with muted celebrations after spending 2018 on the front line of the battle against climate change.Kiribati is made up of low-lying atolls along the equator which intersect three time zones, the first of which sees the new year 14 hours before midnight in London.Much of the nation’s land mass, occupied by 110,000 people, is endangered by rising seas which have inundated coastal villages. The rising oceans have turned fresh water sources brackish, imperiling communities and raising doubts the nation will exist at the next New Year. Former President Anote Tong said the only future for Kiribati may be mass migration.The new year was welcomed in the capital, Tarawa, with church services and mostly quiet private celebrations.NEW ZEALANDFireworks explode from Auckland’s SkyTower.

Yangon: Myanmar says dozens of Rohingya Muslims who fled to neighbouring Bangladesh have returned voluntarily and will be sent to a transit centre pending resettlementNearly 700000 Rohingya fled mainly Buddhist Myanmar after a violent army crackdown began last August in the western state of Rakhine a process that the US and UN have described as ethnic cleansing Myanmar has said it is ready to

minority have been reluctant to return without guarantees of basic rights and protections including the right to return to their old villages rather than to transit camps File image of Rohingya refugees Reuters A total of 58 Rohingya have crossed back into Myanmar after they could "no longer find it tenable" to live in Bangladeshi refugee camps according to a statement published in state media Monday from the office of Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi They were detained for failing to follow proper repatriation procedures until the decision to "pardon" them and allow them to resettle in Myanmar the statement said adding they would be "temporarily" housed in a transit camp The returnees entered Myanmar in different stages over the last four months said Suu Kyi spokesman Zaw Htay Myanmar did not give any information on the group’s members and Bangladeshi authorities said they were unaware of any details "We haven’t heard of any such incidents of refugees returning to Rakhine through their own volition or under their own arrangement from the camps" Bangladesh refugee commissioner Mohammad Abul Kalam told AFP The UN has said conditions in Rakhine are not ripe for repatriation "The Government of Myanmar is busy telling the world that it is ready to receive Rohingya returnees while at the same time its forces are continuing to drive them into Bangladesh" said UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Andrew Gilmour in March "Safe dignified and sustainable returns are of course impossible under current conditions" The group will be the first to be sent
