As Hindus in Guyana and around the world, observe “Maha Shiva Ratri” today, Social Cohesion and Culture Youth and Sport Minister, Dr George Norton has extended greetings and best wishes to the community.He said this festival contributes to a peaceful and conducive environment in which all can dwell in harmony irrespective of system and beliefs.“It is my hope that every Guyanese, particularly my Hindu brothers and sisters will utilise this blessed occasion for spiritual growth and intellectual upliftment. In observance of Maha Shiv Ratri, Guyanese from all walks of life can be guided by the noble teachings of Lord Shiva – the God that promotes peace of mind,” Dr Norton stated. The Minister went on to say that the teachings of Lord Shiva revolve around empathy, humility and compassion.“He teaches us that anger should be channelled towards constructive acts that benefit mankind because in the end we all will eventually leave this material world behind. The practice of brotherhood and forgiveness, as taught by Lord Shiva, are the kind of qualities that all Guyanese should embrace as we forge ahead to build a more cohesive society where diversities are respected and embraced with pride,” the Culture Minister asserted.Meanwhile, the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) also joined thousands of Hindus across the country to celebrate “Maha Shiva Ratri” – the “Great Night of Shiva”; the annual auspicious occasion on the Hindu calendar is marked by fasting, prayers and paying homage to Lord Shiva, a central figure of the Hindu Trinity.ERC Commissioner Rajkumarie Singh, who is the representative of Hindus on the Commission, extends greetings to all Guyanese, especially the Hindu community on behalf of the ERC.“The Commissioners and staff of the ERC send warmest greetings to all our Hindu brothers and sisters on this occasion. As you surrender to the Divine Force of Lord Shiva and you seek to recognise Him inside of you, may each of us move away from conflict and move towards truth, beauty, peace and benevolence. A most peaceful and blessed ‘Maha Shiva Ratri’ to all,” Commissioner Singh said.In English, “Maha Shivaratri” translates to “The Night of Shiva”. Lord Shiva is regarded as one of the main deities in Hinduism.Hindus in and out of Guyana will observe Maha Shiva Ratri on Monday March 3, 2019. This is an annual feature which falls on the fourteenth day of the dark half of the month of Phagun, (Feb-March). It is a festival which demands complete abstinence since it results in purity of mind and strengthening of intellect.On this occasion Lord Shiva is worshipped as Nirgun Brahma. The formless and attribute-less Supreme Brahmana. The Lingam is the centre of all worship. The Lingam symbolises that which is auspicious and infinite. It is a mark of the generative power of the Lord. The Lingam also represents trinity which includes Creative, Sustaining and Regenerative forces of the universe.Devotees from all walks of life participate in the observance. This occasion subscribes to the transcendence of all barriers. It allows all aspirants to recognise that the infinite power of the supreme is manifested in all beings sentient and insentient.Maha Shiva Ratri, in essence, is a time for reflection and self-analysis. It is a time to embrace the inevitable reality of life. That reality is called Truth.Maha Shiva Ratri Customs & CelebrationsIn honour of Lord Shiva, many devotees on this day fast. While some of those who fast will do so on a diet of milk and fruit, there are others who won’t even drink a drop of water on this day.Many devotees also believe that worshipping Shiva on this day with a sincere heart will not only absolve them of their sins and liberate them from being reincarnated, but it will also bring them luck and happiness.Many devotees will also take a ritual bath in the Ganga River early in the morning on this day. They then put on brand-new clothes and visit the Shiva temple to ritually bathe the Lingam with water, milk and/or honey.Additionally, Hindu devotees hold overnight vigils, worship the Shivalingam, and make offerings of fruits, flowers and milk to the Hindu deity.There are several stories explaining the event; some say that it was on this day that Lord Shiva drank the poison that came out of the churning ocean in the epic ‘Samudra Manthan’ involving the Devas and Asuras, while some say that Maha Shiva Ratri marks the marital union of Lord Shiva and Parvati.Some ancient scriptures also say that Lord Shiva performed his ferocious dance or tandav on this particular day and his devotees remember him as the God who destroys evil and listens to his true devotees with an open heart.
What was expected to be a historical event at the D’Urban Park arena where the Government and Opposition would have sat side by side to celebrate Guyana’s 50th independence anniversary turned out to be a huge blunder and embarrassment for the Administration.The People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) was no doubt insulted and disrespected when they, just like other Guyanese, committed to patriotism, put politics aside and joined the Government in celebrating the country’s significant milestone.Rather than being welcomed for this act of partnership, the country’s Opposition were given a cold shoulder and left standing, with no proper accommodation for them at the country’s premier event. This act defies all calls of unity and social cohesion. As a matter of fact, the ill-mannered act comes 24 hours after Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo in his address to the National Assembly said Guyanese need to work together in order for the country to truly prosper.In his speech, the Opposition Leader also pointed out that the Party wants the country’s people to live together in harmony and not be divided by history and by current circumstances.More importantly, the Opposition Leader said that “regardless of the robust debates that we have; regardless of the numerous encounters we have wherever we go in the streets or on television or in the debates, we are all children of this soil. We all share its history.”The sincerity of this speech was demonstrated when Jagdeo and his MPs turned up at D’Uban Park on Wednesday night. However, this act by the Government now raises the question of their genuineness when calls are made for unity and social cohesion. The President on numerous occasions outlined that the country’s future depends on deeper social cohesion and political inclusiveness.Only recently in his address to the National Assembly, the Head of State said, “Social cohesion is about fostering greater integration in our nation. Integration can increase a sense of belonging. It can give recognition to all groups and to allow them to freely practice their culture… Our nation’s future stability depends, also, on wider political inclusiveness…”As a matter of fact, no other than the Head of State himself, in his independence message to the nation said that the country has made headway in uniting its people. To give lip service to such an important issue in a delicate nation, by all means should be rejected by Guyanese.The political Opposition’s acceptance of the invitation to participate in the events at D’Urban Park demonstrates maturity and seriousness towards inclusiveness as Guyana moves forward. However, to leave the Opposition standing at such an event sends a message of pure disregard and disparage.The President should launch an immediate investigation into such humiliation especially given the fact that the Opposition Leader spoke to the Attorney General and Minister responsible for culture about the concerns of the PPP/C MPs being seated.Both Ministers should be held accountable for the utter disrespect since although requesting an intervention, the concerns aired by the Opposition Leader fell on deaf ears. It can be recalled that at past independence celebrations that were held at the National Park, the VIP sections were reserved for all MPs, diplomats and special invitees.Such uncouth behaviour was not extended by the previous Administration and the President should not condone it either. As a matter of fact, a public apology should be extended to the People’s Progressive Party and the President should reprimand those responsible for such callous, irresponsible and destructive behaviour extended to the political Opposition.

Following the Kenya Motor Sports Federation (KMSF) announcement that the 2019 KCB Bank Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) will count as a seven (7) rounds championship instead of eight (8), Chager becomes the new Champion with an unassailable 162 points against Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo’s 142.Chager was hoping to finish in the top 10 on Guru Nanak to recapture the coveted title but not until the force majeure was called. The KNRC title race went down to the wire after the muddy KCB Eldoret where Tundo swept the ground with all his opponents to keep his title defence alive.Other Champions are Issa Amwari (Division Two), Ammar Haq (Division One), Daren Miranda (Two Wheel Drive) and Jasmeet Chana ,(Group N).The 2020 calendar is already published with the first KNRC championship scheduled for 22nd – 23rd February 2020.KNRC Overall1 Baldev Chager 1622 Carl Tundo1423 Manvir Baryan 914 Onkar Rai 685 Tejveer Rai 636 Jasmeet Chana 417 Ian Duncan 387= Issa Amwari 389 Izhar Mirza 339= Ammar Haq 330Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)
CALGARY, A.B. – A new refinery touted as part of the solution to Alberta’s oversupply of heavy oil likely won’t begin processing oilsands bitumen until year-end, several months later than expected.That means 80,000 barrels per day of diluted bitumen that would have been delivered to the $9.7-billion Sturgeon Refinery near Edmonton is instead joining the queue to be placed on overcrowded pipelines leaving the province.Ian MacGregor, CEO of co-owner North West Refining, Inc., says multiple equipment failures have prevented the startup of the part of the refinery designed to break down heavy, sticky bitumen into an upgraded oil that can then be converted into consumer products.- Advertisement -He says the refinery contains some 7,000 pieces of equipment and getting them all to operate in concert is taking more time than expected, with the latest setback involving a heat exchanger that was apparently damaged during installation.Sturgeon, the first new refinery built in Alberta in more than 30 years, was completed 12 months ago and has since been producing diesel from synthetic crude upgraded at an Alberta oilsands mine.MacGregor says the refinery is benefiting as high discounts on prices on stranded Alberta heavy oil have also begun to affect light oil and synthetic oil, leading to its feedstock costing as much as US$30 per barrel less than usual.Advertisement He says the refinery is currently producing between 35,000 and 40,000 barrels per day of diesel.“I think we’re going to be running on bitumen by the end of the year,” he said in an interview.“It will take a while to come up to full capacity because as we put bitumen into it, we’ll find other problems.”The refinery is a joint venture of North West Refining and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., which is to provide 25 percent of its bitumen feedstock. The rest is to come from the government-owned Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission.Advertisement

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Richard Gibbs of the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, who led a team that decoded the DNA of a monkey called the rhesus macaque, called the new work “a good outline” of cat DNA. Scientists are looking forward to the complete version, which will be useful for making detailed comparisons to the DNA of other animals, he said. The full complement of an organism’s DNA is called its genome. In cats, as in people, it’s made up of nearly 3billion building blocks. The sequence of those blocks spells out the hereditary information, just as strings of letters spell out sentences. Decoding a genome, which is called sequencing, means identifying the order of the building blocks. The new work identified 20,285 genes in the cat, probably about 95percent of the animal’s full complement, O’Brien said. That’s similar to the 20,000-25,000 genes estimated for humans. NEW YORK – An Abyssinian cat from Missouri named Cinnamon has just made scientific history. Researchers have largely decoded her DNA, a step that may aid the search for treatments for both feline and human diseases. The report adds cats to roughly two dozen mammals whose DNA has been unraveled, a list that includes dogs, chimps, rats, mice, cows and of course, people. Why add cats? They get more than 200 diseases that resemble human illnesses, and knowing the details of their genetic makeup should help in the search for vaccines and treatments, researchers say. The list includes a cat version of AIDS, SARS, diabetes, retinal disease and spina bifida, said Stephen J. O’Brien of the National Cancer Institute. The new work is reported in the November issue of the journal Genome Research by a team including O’Brien and colleague Joan Pontius. It covers about two-thirds of the DNA of Cinnamon, a research cat that lives at the University of Missouri in Columbia; more complete results are expected next year, O’Brien said.
1 Jose Mourinho, Frank de Boer and Ronald Koeman are contenders for the Everton job Joey Barton has spoken to talkSPORT to share his thoughts on Everton’s managerial search, on the day Roberto Martinez was sacked by the Merseyside club.The Spaniard was dismissed the day after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Sunderland, which guarantees the Toffees will finish in the bottom half of the Premier League table this term.After a record points total in his debut season, and an excellent fifth placed finish, things have only been going downhill for Martinez, and Everton need to ensure they bring in the correct manager to fix his mistakes.Frank de Boer is considered front-runner for the job, having confirmed his exit from Ajax this week, while both Jose Mourinho and Ronald Koeman have been touted as potential managers for the Goodison Park club.It is Mourinho who Barton believes has to be hired, as he has a proven record in English football, although Southampton boss Koeman is also thought of highly by the midfielder.Speaking as Drive co-host, the boyhood Everton fan said: “You need tried and tested in the Premier League. No disrespect to De Boer, he is a good manager, and will prove that in time, but I don’t think he’s for Everton now.“If you could get Koeman, I think he’s proven himself in the Premier League. If you look at his track record as a player and as a coach, he has a track record of winning.“If you can get Mourinho, you’ve got to get Mourinho. He has to be first choice, just because he’s as good as anyone. You’ve got to forget what’s happened this year at Chelsea, if Mourinho is given the right money and assurances he’s one of the best out there.”Barton, who has just helped Burnley back into the top flight, places De Boer last in his wishlist, suggesting that his lack of Premier League experience could mean the Dutch boss sends the Toffees into a relegation scrap if appointed manager.He added: “Failing that [hiring Mourinho] I would go Koeman, and if all else fails, take a chance on De Boer. But if you take a chance on De Boer you could be sitting very close to a relegation battle next season. It’s not guaranteed that you’ll get an upturn in form.”
1 Valencia have joined Manchester United in the race for former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lassana Diarra.The 31-year-old has been in fine form since joining Marseille in the summer of 2015, and he is now back in the fold with the France team.As a result, United boss Mourinho has reportedly been tracking Diarra and the Red Devils were linked with a move for him earlier on in the transfer window.However, according to Foot Mercato, if the manager does want to bring Diarra to Old Trafford he is going to have to fight off competition from Valencia.The Spanish side, who struggled in the first half of the season, currently sit 15th in the LaLiga table and are desperately looking for reinforcements this January.Diarra held preliminary talks with Valencia over the weekend and further negotiations are now scheduled for this week. Lassana Diarra has been a revelation for Marseille this season
4 It is the second time in a week that Lyon have been plagued by fan trouble, with supporters spilling onto the pitch in the Europa League game against Besiktas. 4 4 4 Memphis Depay and Mathieu Gorgelin appeared to be the targets, with the team retreating to the changing room. Full-back Jérémy Berthod explained to OLTV, the club’s TV channel, that some supporters kicked footballs into goalkeeper Gorgelin’s net, with either he or Memphis Depay trying to get rid of them before trouble flared.“The players and staff are very shocked,” he said, explaining that nobody wanted to return to the pitch.However, a decision was made to get the game underway and, as the players made their way back out, they were cheered.

Tony Galvin of San Diego said he understood the principle of separation of church and state but called the cross “a special case.” “It’s been here for a long time,” he said. “It’s part of San Diego’s fabric and it really should stay as is.” Three years ago, the Supreme Court refused to get involved in the dispute between Paulson and the city. Kennedy granted the stay to the city and the cross’ supporters without comment pending a further order from him or the entire court. It was unclear Monday how long the stay would remain in effect or whether the Supreme Court would ultimately deny the appeals by the city and the cross’ supporters.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Duncan Hunter, R-El Cajon, said the stay was “the right decision.” Hunter, along with Mayor Jerry Sanders, asked President George W. Bush in May to exercise his power of eminent domain and take over the half-acre cross site atop Mount Soledad. The cross, on a scenic hilltop perch in the upscale La Jolla area, was contested in 1989 by Philip Paulson, a Vietnam veteran and atheist. The ruling drew mixed reviews from a smattering of tourists and visitors to the cross. SAN DIEGO – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday put on hold an order to remove a monumental cross that sits on public land, giving hope to supporters just weeks before the cross was to be taken down. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, acting for the high court, issued a stay of a lower court order to remove the 29-foot cross by Aug. 1, buying time for the city of San Diego and other cross supporters to continue their fight in state and federal appellate courts. The city argued that the cross was part of a broader memorial that was important to the community. San Diegans for the Mount Soledad National War Memorial joined the city’s appeal, saying they wanted to avoid the “destruction of this national treasure.” In May, U.S. District Court Judge Gordon Thompson Jr. declared that the cross, a symbol of Christianity, was an unconstitutional endorsement of one religion over another. Thompson ordered the city to take down the cross or pay daily fines of $5,000 starting Aug. 2.

23 February 2012Business has welcomed Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s 2012 Budget, saying it rightly emphasized the need for a collaborative effort from all South Africans in working towards a growing, inclusive, job-rich economy against the backdrop of a weak global economic outlook.Business Unity South Africa (Busa) described the Budget as credible, broadly balanced and confidence-building, saying it was pleased with the central priority the Budget placed on the expanded infrastructure programme.“This initiative should not only aid in building modern infrastructure, but will also reduce poverty, create decent work and expand employment opportunities,” Busa said in a statement on Thursday.Need to be globally competitiveBusa was further pleased with the emphasis on the need for South Africa to be globally competitive, further tax relief for small business and micro-enterprises, and a simplified tax regime for SMMEs.It said the small and emerging business sector had the greatest potential for job creation.“We welcome as business additional allocations of R55.9-billion over the next three years and an additional R9.5-billion for an economic support package.“We also welcome the 43 major infrastructure projects and further detail on how they will be funded. In this vein, we look forward to the infrastructure summit which the President is planning to convene soon,” said Busa.Sars commended for raising R739-billionThe Banking Association of South Africa commended the South African Revenue Service for raising R739-billion under difficult economic conditions. “The national Budget has, for the first time, passed R1-trillion, highlighting the significant expenditure by government,” it said.The association said Gordhan had demonstrated visionary, honest and practical leadership.In his speech, Gordhan commented on the high banking costs in South Africa. The association said that, while increasing competition in the sector was leading to a more efficient sector with lower costs, had to be noted that South Africa had high broadband costs, costs of protecting cash and significant compliance costs.It said it was working with National Treasury in this regard.Dividends tax rate increase ‘a shock’Des Kruger, Director: Tax at Webber Wentzel law firm said that the increase in the dividends tax rate had come as a shock, given that all previous announcements and the law as it stands at present indicated a 10% rate.“The proposed 50% increase in the dividends tax rate to 15% so late in the day will no doubt cause considerable administration burdens on those companies and regulated intermediaries that have to account for the tax,” said Kruger.He added that foreigners owning property in South Africa would be adversely affected by the increase in inclusion capital gains tax (CGT) rates, because non-residents are required to pay CGT on the disposal of any immovable property owned by them in South Africa.However, Kruger did welcome the proposal to allow a deduction for interest incurred on the acquisition of shares to be deductible in certain circumstances.PKF chartered accountants and business advisers was surprised by the unexpected increase in the rate at which the new Dividends Tax was being levied at 15% – when 10% had been anticipated – and the increase in the rate of capital gains tax (CGT) from 10% to 13.3% for individuals, from 14% to 18.6% for companies and from 20% to 26.7% for trusts.‘High-income earners targeted’Eugene du Plessis, director of tax at the company said the Budget had hit the high net worth individual (HNWI) sector.“They are targeting the HNWI with measures that can only affect the wealthy, and by removing legitimate means of reducing their tax burden,” Du Plessis said.“While this is being viewed as ‘a more equitable means of spreading the load’, targeting the high proportion of their income that HNWIs earn from passive investments, in reality it is making South Africa such a high-tax country for the wealthy that there is little incentive for them to live here as opposed to more developed countries.”The coalition of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), the South African Council of Churches (SACC) and the South African Non-Governmental Organisation Coalition (Sangoco) said it welcomed that government spending would be increased to 32% of GDP in 2012/13.State ‘must learn to spend its allocations better’However, the coalition said, it was concerned at the capacity in national departments, provincial governments and local municipalities to spend the allocated amounts in a manner that will boost the industrial capacity of the economy and create decent jobs.The coalition, referred to as the People’s Budget Campaign (PBC), said it was concerned that the Budget deficit would decrease to 3% of GDP by 2014.“The unpredictability of the current economic crisis in Europe will continue to impact our economy negatively,” the PBC said. “It is therefore important for government to avoid decreasing the budget deficit over the MTEF and thus prevent our economy from deteriorating into a second-round recession.“Cutting deficit spending is simply not a sound economic measure given the global economic crisis and the triple crisis we continue to face at home.”While the coalition welcomed the allocation of infrastructure spend to the tune of R3.2-trillion over the three-year period, it said it must be complimented by the need to increase the capacity of the state to appropriately spend the allocated amounts.“We welcome the proposed establishment of the municipal infrastructure support agency that will enhance infrastructure development capacity of the rural municipalities.”The coalition said it rejected the proposed adjustments in tariffs by the minister regarding e-tolling in Gauteng to pay for the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project.“The PBC rejects the continued reliance on user pay principle in the development of road infrastructure. We do not support e-tolling and call for a reliable, safe, affordable and integrated transport system,” it said, noting the acknowledgement made by Gordhan that the e-tolling system will have a negative impact on the road users in the province and workers in particular.The coalition said it was appalled that some learners were still being taught in mud houses, and demanded the elimination of them in the financial year. The Budget also failed to reduce teacher-learner ratios in the rural and township schools, it said.Source: BuaNews

Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting When the iPad was launched, people across the geek-o-sphere condemned it as a dumb chunk of glass “for consumption only” – a tool incapable of facilitating content creation and possibly a threat to the future of human creativity. “The iPad is an attractive, thoughtfully designed, deeply cynical thing,” wrote Alex Payne. “[If] I had an iPad rather than a real computer as a kid, I’d never be a programmer today.” That may very well be, but the new iPad app that popular web exploration network StumbleUpon released this week goes a long way towards compensating for whatever risks to creativity that the device poses. If you’ve got an iPad, I think it’s a must-have app. That’s true for everyone, including for kids. If you’re not familiar with StumbleUpon, here’s the gist of how it works: you select categories of topical interest (games, art, cooking, politics), then you click the Stumble button. A seemingly random web page, photo or video is served up underneath the StumbleUpon toolbar. You can give that page a thumbs up, down or just click the Stumble button again. The service then serves up another page that people who have expressed the same interest in your previously viewed content have said that they like – it learns from you in order to make recommendations.Then you click, click, click the Stumble button while zipping around the web, jumping up and down and clapping like a schoolgirl. At least that’s the way it works for millions, if not tens of millions, of StumbleUpon users. It’s like Pandora for web content. Now it turns your iPad into a magic carpet ride all around the web – and you’ll only be richer for it.MG Siegler at TechCrunch says the new StumbleUpon app is the kind of perfect lean-back experience that the iPad was made for. I think that’s true, but I think there’s more to it than that.Stumble vs TwitterBefore The Great Twitter Explosion of 2010, we wrote in early 2009 that StumbleUpon had quietly built a userbase that was twice the size of Twitter’s – without any media coverage or celebrity endorsements. By all appearances, Stumble hasn’t grown nearly as fast and Twitter is now more than 10 times as popular.That may be because the celebrities so into Twitter have little interest in promoting StumbleUpon. Stumble may arguably be deeply hedonistic, but it’s not particularly narcissistic. Twitter, for all its wonderful qualities, is probably the height of narcissism. That the freedom that comes from learning, communion, serendipity and the other positive qualities Stumble offers is not as popular as all the things Twitter offers is not at all surprising. Even though both are about social discovery of content of interest, they are very different services.I think that the Stumble experience is one of the rawest forms of the read-write web around. What the user is writing is their own “taste graph” – a stream of signals concerning their interests that is then used as a platform for development. Today it’s mostly used to serve up more webpages, but in the future the taste graph could be used to offer recommendations and other services concerning all kinds of things.

A 10,300-year-old skeleton from On Your Knees Cave in Alaska reveals a clear line of descent to modern tribes in the Pacific Northwest. © Kenneth Garrett Photography Ancient skeletons show direct link to modern tribes in the Pacific Northwest This cast of a jaw comes from a 10,300-year-old ancient human who may have been an ancestor of modern tribes in the Pacific Northwest. Courtesy E. James Dixon By Ann GibbonsApr. 4, 2017 , 5:30 PM The Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest have always claimed to have deep roots in the region. Now, an ancient mariner may be able to back that claim up. Scientists sequencing the DNA of 10,300-year-old human remains from On Your Knees Cave in Alaska have found that he was closely related to three ancient skeletons found along the coast of British Columbia in Canada. These three ancient people were in turn closely related to the Tsimshian, Tlingit, Nisga’a, and Haida tribes living in the region today. The new finding reveals a direct line of descent to these tribes, and it shows—for the first time from ancient DNA—that at least two different groups of people were living in North America more than 10,000 years ago.The study started 21 years ago with an unusually friendly collaboration between archaeologists and the Tlingit tribe that lived near the mariner’s remains on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. Researchers gathered DNA from the 10,300-year-old skeleton known as Shuká Káa (“Man Ahead of Us”), initially focusing on maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). They didn’t find a match between its mtDNA and members of the tribe, but they discovered his seafaring ways because isotopes from his teeth showed he ate a marine diet. The project ended on a note of good will between scientists and Native Americans, with a ceremonial reburial of the skeleton in 2008. But as methods of sequencing ancient DNA got exponentially better, the team of geneticists requested permission from the Tlingit and Haida of Alaska, as well as tribes farther south in British Columbia, to extract nuclear DNA from Shuká Káa and three other ancient skeletons. They were allowed to sample the last remaining tissue from Shuká Káa’s molars and from the teeth of a 6075-year-old skeleton on Lucy Island in British Columbia (just 300 kilometers from On Your Knees Cave), a 2500-year-old skeleton from Prince Rupert harbor in British Columbia, and another 1750-year-old skeleton from the same area.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Although Shuká Káa’s DNA was too damaged to sequence his entire genome, a team led by molecular anthropologist Ripan Malhi from the University of Illinois in Champaign was able to sequence markers that represented about 6% of his genome. (They also sequenced one-third to two-thirds of the genomes of the other three individuals.) The team then compared those markers to see how closely related the ancient individuals were to each other and to 156 indigenous groups living around the world today. They found that genomewide sequences from the three most recent remains from Lucy Island and Prince Rupert harbor off the coast of British Columbia were closely related to the Tsimshian and other tribes in the Pacific Northwest. Shuká Káa, on the other hand, appears more closely related to groups living in South and Central America today, such as the Karitiana, Suruí, and Ticuna of Brazil’s Amazon. But the signal is not statistically strong, and it may simply be a sign that the tribes all share DNA from the same ancient ancestors in Asia or Beringia where humans lived before they entered the Americas. But Shuká Káa’s maternally inherited mtDNA and nuclear DNA both suggest he is also close kin of the younger skeletons in the study. Connecting the dots between all the ancient individuals, Malhi’s team proposes that Shuká Káa is also ancestral to all those groups, including the Tsimshian and related tribes in the Pacific Northwest, they report today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences early edition.In another interesting twist, the team found that the group of skeletons was not closely related to two other famous Paleoindians: the 8545-year-old Kennewick Man, unearthed from the banks of the Columbia River in Washington state, and the 12,600-year-old Anzick child from Montana. This suggests there were at least two groups of settlers who came to North America across the Bering Strait land bridge before 10,000 years ago, Malhi says. Although multiple migrations have long been documented, this is the first ancient DNA evidence of different groups arriving in North America at such an early date.Other researchers call the link between the three more recent skeletons and the tribes of the Pacific Northwest “quite clear.” Paleogeneticist Pontus Skoglund of Harvard University, who was not involved in the work, says support for those tribes’ relation to Shuká Káa is weaker, but possible. It could also be, he adds, that Shuká Káa was alive before the lineage formed that led to current northwest groups.Whether the ancient mariner is a direct ancestor of today’s tribes or not, the discovery of the link from the recent skeletons fits with Tlingit and Tsimshian oral traditions that suggest the Tsimshian migrated west along British Columbia’s Naas River to the coast, before spreading north and south, says Rosita Worl, president of the Sealaska Heritage Institute in Juneau and a member of the Tlingit tribe. Archaeologist Timothy Heaton of the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, whose team discovered Shuká Káa, adds that the genetic links fit with the engraving the Tlingit put on the headstone when they reburied Shuká Káa: “We Have Lived in Southeast Alaska Since Time Immemorial. Shuká Káa is Testimony to Our Ancient Occupancy of This Land.”

Manchester City dropped to third in the Premier League as Leicester City made it back-to-back defeats for Pep Guardiola’s men – Ricardo Pereira’s spectacular 81st-minute strike securing a 2-1 triumph. The reigning champions have lost three of their past four top-flight outings and lie seven points behind Liverpool, whose closest challengers are now Tottenham – six points back of the leaders. As in their weekend defeat to Crystal Palace, Manchester City took a first-half lead but were quickly pegged back – Bernardo Silva’s goal cancelled out by Marc Albrighton, who also equalised when the sides met in the EFL Cup quarter-finals last week.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! A 1-1 draw on that occasion ended with a victory for Manchester City on penalties but Leicester prevailed this time, with hero Pereira on the receiving end of a rash challenge that saw Fabian Delph sent off in the closing minutes. Such a turnaround appeared unlikely when Aymeric Laporte fizzed a 14th-minute pass into Sergio Aguero’s feet and the Argentina striker played in Silva for a neat finish. The lead lasted only five minutes, though, as referee Mike Dean waved away claims for a foul against Danilo and Leicester made the most of an undermanned defence – Jamie Vardy crossing for Albrighton to head in at the far post. Aguero almost restored the visitors’ advantage following excellent work from Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane, though they needed a trio of saves from Ederson to deny Vardy, James Maddison and Hamza Choudhury before half-time.

Leicester attacks had started to dry up, although Laporte needed an inch-perfect tackle to thwart the ever-alert Vardy. Pereira’s opening was nowhere near as enticing but he struck a beautifully clinical blow from the edge of the box when Sane could only partially clear a corner. Guardiola’s Christmas nightmare was compounded when Sane lashed a chance to equalise over and Delph lost control.What does it mean? Champions losing touch with LiverpoolA two-point advantage earlier this month is now a considerable deficit and Manchester City, so imperious for most of 2018, have faltered at an untimely moment, leaving them with a mountain to climb in the title race. Liverpool’s trip to the Etihad Stadium on January 3 is now a must-win encounter. Leicester climb to seventh and this result, on the back of a 1-0 win at Chelsea, will do much to quell murmurs of discontent around manager Claude Puel.Pereira crowns brilliant display with show-stopping strike The former Porto defender’s game-settling strike was a moment to savour, further enhancing his overall performance. Pereira’s duel with Sane was absorbing throughout and he looked to drive forward from full-back at every opportunity.A Christmas cracker! #LeiMci pic.twitter.com/r7AXwck5OD — Leicester City (@LCFC) December 26, 2018 Sterling fails to shine So often a decisive star in big moments for Manchester City over the past 18 months, England forward Sterling was hampered by poor decision-making, heavy passes and an uncertain touch in an outing to forget.Key Opta Facts- This is the first time Manchester City have lost consecutive Premier League games since December 2016, with the second defeat in that run also coming away at Leicester.- Leicester have won their last two Premier League games against ‘big six’ opposition, as many as they had managed in their previous 19 in the competition (W2 D2 L15).- Manchester City have conceded a goal from their first shot faced in three of their last four league matches (Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester).- Of Pep Guardiola’s 11 Premier League defeats, six have come in the month of December.- Bernardo Silva has had a hand in nine goals in his 18 Premier League appearances this season (5 goals, 4 assists) – just one fewer than in his 35 games in the competition last term (6 goals, 4 assists).- With Ricardo Pereira scoring for Leicester and Bernardo Silva netting for Manchester City, this was the first time a Premier League match saw a Portuguese player score for both sides.

So you’re starting off the New Year with a bang; chasing your dream gigs and sending out pitches, resumes, and samples left and right. Good for you, you freelancing whirlwind!But before you hit Send on your next application, check out these quick tips – and make sure that you’re going after the right contact in any given company, in the right way.Do your researchAdapt your toneA little poking around any potential client’s website can give you really great hints about tone. Some of this can be gleaned by job postings- Is their tone relaxed or formal? Does it have a sense of humor, or is it purely corporate? – but go one step further by learning about the company itself, and adapting your pitch and materials to suit the same.Check out not only their purely public content – how they speak to their potential clients – but also their slightly more insider information (often in the About section).What language do they use to describe themselves? How do they present their products to the world? I’ve even seen freelancers succeed by finding decision-makers on LinkedIn or other social media platforms, observing how they describe themselves professionally, and using that to inform their pitches.Adopting a potential client’s tone can help you to pre-shape your pitch and refine your portfolio to feature samples that will appeal to the client. With a few tweaks, you’ll seem like a natural fit into their workplace culture.Use the proper method of addressAgain, do your research. Many companies and clients have specific instructions about how and when to apply to gigs, and will often use that information to screen out pitches. If the client wants to be contacted by email, contact them by email.Double-check little details like the current title of a recruiter, names, and contact information. There’s nothing more embarrassing than sending a pitch to a Sarah when the recruiter’s name is Sara; you may not catch it, but Sara-without-an-h definitely will.If the information is not easily findable (oh, how many inquiries have been stymied by a gender-neutral name), consider calling the company and asking. Many receptionists are used to providing this basic information, and will happily provide details.Double-checkAgain, a receptionist can be a great source of information for any polite and respectful freelancer. If you have ANY question about if you are, in fact, contacting the right decision-maker in a hiring situation, call the company. Confirm your data; the extra attention to detail can really pay off.If the receptionist seems especially harried, offer to call back later. If the receptionist says he/she is not authorized to give out information (it does occasionally happen), politely thank them and take to Google. Either way, double-check all your information before you pitch.Join Freelancers Union (it’s free!)Become a memberFind an in-roadOkay, you know how I said that you should follow a company’s stated rules about how and when to apply to gigs? That is true… mostly.Rules are often intended to keep anonymous hordes from applying blindly to gigs; companies enjoy setting minor roadblocks and installing gatekeepers. That being said, there are almost always sneaky loopholes that can give you a leg up on the competition.The first (and most obvious) loophole is an “inside job.” If you’ve got a friend or colleague who currently works within the company, ask if they’ll forward your information along to the decision-maker. If you know somebody who has had a connection with the company in the past, ask if you can drop their name (or if they’ll recommend you); offer to take them to dinner or return the favor down the road.This small step alone can elevate you from Anonymous Applicant to Bob’s Friend Who Is A Great Freelancer.The second (quite fair) loophole is tweaking your materials to pique their interest. Too often, applicants submit exactly what a potential client asks for – and no more. Don’t do the minimum and blend in with the crowd. If a potential client wants samples of a portfolio and a resume, send those materials… but also include a smattering of your best press, or a handful of testimonials.Include links to additional work. Inform them of upcoming events or special deals, and offer to keep them in the loop. Anything that can make your application stand out (without specifically violating the application rules or making you look like a totally insane person) is fair game. I would not generally recommend attaching a photo of yourself dressed as the company mascot, but who knows?A third (and slightly more risky) loophole is the Can’t-Blame-Me-For-Trying maneuver. If a company stipulates exactly how and when they wish you to apply for a gig, do indeed follow their rules… but if you’re feeling especially brave, consider supplementing that application with additional marketing materials. Just make sure to have a calm, friendly tone (don’t try to hard-sell).I’ve had good results with both a friendly supplemental email and polite, personalized snail mail containing samples. The rules can indeed be prohibitory… but if you’re judicious about your approach and your methods, you may find them quite a bit more flexible than they appear. Most companies don’t resent the occasional fence-jumper… as long as you keep it sane and friendly.If you’ve looked over these steps and feel certain that you’re on top of them , go forth and apply with confidence – you’re yards ahead of your competition!Kate Shea lives and works in New York City, where she consumes an inordinate amount of Sriracha daily.

After registering a convincing seven-wicket win in the first T20I, the Indian women’s cricket team would look to continue its supremacy over the hosts when the two sides clash in the second Twenty20 International on Friday.The win on Monday came after the team lost the last match of the three-match ODI series – which they won 2-1 – and the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side would look to carry on the momentum in the remainder of the five-match series.The way the Indians came out all guns blazing in the first T20, it seemed the loss in the inconsequential third ODI prior to the series was just a rare bad day in office and their confidence hardly took a beating.Opting to bowl, the Indian women first restricted South Africa to 164 for four and then overhauled the target with consummate ease in 18.5 overs.While chasing, opener Mithali Raj (54 not out) held the Indian innings together and shared two crucial stands — a 69-run partnership for the third wicket with debutant Jemimah Rodrigues (37) and a 52-run fourth-wicket stand with Veda Krishnamurthy (37 not out) — to steer her side home.Mithali’s knock, her 11th T20 International half century, came off 48 deliveries with the help of half a dozen fours and one six and the Indian team management would hope for an encore from the experienced batswoman.The 17-year-old Mumbai player, Rodrigues, also batted impressively on her debut, hitting four boundaries and a six during her breezy 27-ball knock, while Krishnamurthy was at her attacking best.advertisementOpener Smriti Mandhana made 28 but she would be hoping for a big knock.Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur too would be hoping to score big after a first-ball duck in the last match, owing to a run out.The Indian batting looks in good form but the visitors’ bowling is a cause of concern in the absence of veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami, who has been ruled out of the series because of a heel injury.Young fast bowler Pooja Vastrakar (1/34) certainly looked nervous on her debut and her pace colleague Shikha Pandey’s (1/41) performance was a big let-down.In the absence of Jhulan, Pandey would need to shoulder more responsibility upfront in the bowling department.T20 specialist off-spinner Anuja Patil was the star for India in the last match, claiming 2 for 23 in her four overs to pin down South Africa’s batting line-up.But she would definitely need support from the likes of Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav and Harmanpreet.”It’s good to have the youngsters in the squad. Usually when you have a few new members, they get a lot of positive energy into the team and they are quite active on the ground too,” Mithali had said after the first match.For South Africa, the key would be not to get bogged down by the setback and build on the positives.Chloe Tryons ballistic 32 not out from seven balls, including two fours and four sixes, was a big takeaway from the last match and skipper Dane van Niekerk is hoping that the team builds on it.”We need to regroup, we need to speak open and honestly with each other and see where we can change stuff. Our fielding wasn’t at its best and we pride ourselves on our fielding,” Niekerk has said.”T20 is so short and the margins are so much smaller, so hopefully we can bounce back in the next few. I’d like to win the next four and go away from this tour smiling.”Teams (from):India: Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Smriti Mandhana (vice-captain), Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Taniya Bhatia, Nuzhat Parveen Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav.South Africa: Dane van Niekerk (captain), Marizanne Kapp, Trisha Chetty, Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Sune Luus, Odine Kirsten, Mignon du Preez, Lizelle Lee, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Raisibe Ntozakhe, Moseline Daniels.Match starts: 4:30 PM (IST).(With PTI inputs)
Photo Attribution: US PresswireWell we have a lot to sort through…1. The defense was terrific again tonight. Remove the kick return and pick six and they held a team averaging 45 to 30, knocked Klein out of the game, and held them below their average yards per play on the season. The offense gave them little to work with.2. I’m going to write about this more in-depth later on but obviously Lunt was a huge reason OSU lost tonight. You can’t turn it over five (!) times to Kansas State (five!) and expect anything better than what happened. Really the fact that OSU even came within two touchdowns was pretty miraculous as it was[1. Another hat tip to the defense.]. I’m still all in on #11 but I think questions have at least been raised — both about his performance and his ability to stay healthy (but like I said, much more on this later on in the week).3. I had a Fisher-Price joke queued up for my writeup when Carson tweeted this pic of the helmets but they actually looked a lot better on TV. I personally think there’s more work to do here (take a visit to Beaverton, Oregon perhaps?) but we’re moving in the right direction.Here’s the new #okstate helmet http://t.co/vaCNODOF— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) November 3, 2012 4. Brent and Herbie. I mean we almost had to go TV-MA in the second half because of how close they got to having a nationally televised orgasm over the Bama-LSU game. I don’t dislike those guys[2. My Twitter feed tells you differently, I know] but I didn’t feel like they way they conducted the last 30 minutes of our game was very professional at all.5. Gundy talked about KSU’s special teams on Monday in reverential tones normally reserved for war heroes and Pulitzer prize winners. I see why now. 6. LSU-Bama got Wright Thompson for its intro video work, and from the sound of it I think OSU-KSU got somebody off the street…7. Snyder is a psychopath. I know he projects this old man nice grandpa image thing but if you give the man a two score lead he’ll bleed you out until you’re crying for the game to just end. 8. Clint Chelf, my man. All the coeds for you tonight. Not only does OSU have the best QB2 in the country, it has the best QB3 as well. How much money would Randy Edsall pay for Chelf to transfer to Maryland right now? $500K? More?9. Back to Brent and Herbs real quick — how about the way they talked about Klein not playing the last quarter and a half? Brent acted like Snyder was just sitting him because he’d gotten his work in against and KSU was just going to run the game out — like they were playing Northern Iowa or something. It was a three possession game with the #1 offense in the country on the other side of the field! Then they acted like the assistant coaches were playing a game of hide and seek with his helmet. He had a head/neck injury! Where was Jeannine Edwards and why was nobody talking about this?! You’re better than that, ABC[3. I think….].10. This is about what I expected tonight with two slight differences. 1) I expected OSU to take better care of the ball — five turnovers is a joke. 2) I expected more out of Kansas State’s offense. They weren’t explosive and never made you feel like they were going to do anything you couldn’t recover from. I guess that’s kind of the point with Snyder though.I’m heading up the Cowboys4Wildcats National Title fan club. Tell your friends.Back with much more on the game tomorrow.Oh, and don’t forget to fall back (like the OSU offense!) tonight…If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Mbappe experiment needs more timeAfforded the chance to start centrally as Olivier Giroud watched from the bench, Mbappe will be disappointed that his opportunity to impress came to a premature conclusion.The 20-year-old is a known quantity as a wide player at international level and it appears as though that is where he will stay for the time being.Griezmann stands above the packIf concerned that a planned move to Barcelona appears less likely to come to fruition, Griezmann certainly did not show it in Nantes.He set up the opener and scored the second in the kind of classy performance that might just convince the LaLiga champions to take him to Camp Nou.Thauvin toils without rewardDeschamps is not short on options in wide areas and the France boss will be less inclined to hand Thauvin another start in Turkey, the Marseille man having lacked polish in promising moments.What’s next?Following their top-of-the-table clash with Turkey, France face a rather more straightforward encounter away at Andorra.Bolivia, meanwhile, have a difficult date with hosts Brazil in their Copa America opener.

MADISON, WI – NOVEMBER 15: A general view of play between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium on November 15, 2014 in Madison, Wisconsin. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The college football season is nearly here. In just a few weeks college football’s best programs will be taking the field on Saturdays once again.Heading into the 2018 campaign, ESPN’s FPI took at look at the easiest schedules in the game. Earlier this year, Oregon held the distinction as having the easiest schedule in the country.However, over the summer, that has changed. The easiest schedule in the country now belongs to a team in the Big Ten.Now, that might come as a surprise until you look at which division within the Big Ten the team is from. The Wisconsin Badgers enter the 2018 season with the easiest schedule thanks to its position within the Big Ten West.Wisconsin avoids the major competition from the Big Ten East – except for road games to Michigan and Penn State.Check out the Badgers 2018 schedule:Wisconsin is a heavy favorite in every 2018 contest except for the road games to Michigan and Penn State. According to ESPN’s FPI, the Badgers toughest game will come against the Nittany Lions, where Wisconsin has just a 36.6-percent chance to win.Road games to Northwestern and Purdue won’t be a cake walk either, but Wisconsin’s non-conference schedule bodes for a quick 3-0 start to the season.
Brighter evenings are starting a bit earlier this year. Daylight saving time will start three weeks earlier and last one week longer in the fall. A proclamation made under the Time Definition Act ensures that Nova Scotia is in sync when the United States extends its daylight saving time in March. Setting our clocks with the U.S., daylight saving time will ensure banking and other business transactions will not be affected. This is especially important for scheduled transportation services — including airline, buses and rail. In addition to economic benefits, Nova Scotians will enjoy a bit more daylight during the winter months. “Staying consistent with the U.S. will ensure there are no disruptions in our relationship with our chief trading partner,” said Justice Minister Murray Scott. “Being in sync is also important to our agriculture, fishery, transportation, shipping and other sectors in our province.” People will now have to move their clocks ahead one hour on the second Sunday in March. This year, that is March 11. Daylight saving time ends on the first Sunday in November, Nov. 4 this year. Most of the other provinces that use daylight saving time are also implementing the change. Computer users are advised to check their calendars to ensure appointments are up to date when the time change takes effect.

In recognition for their compassion and dedicated support of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel, legendary Dodgers play-by-play announcer Vin Scully and global play and entertainment company Hasbro were awarded the Courage to Care award at CHLA’s ‘From Paris With Love’ gala Saturday.Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters performs onstage at the 2018 Children’s Hospital Los AngelesCredit/Copyright: Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for Children’s Hospital Los AngelesMore than 1,400 prominent philanthropists, local dignitaries and supporters gathered at The Event Deck at L.A. LIVE for an event that raised $5.5 million to support the patient care and medical research that children who visit the hospital need.“We won’t rest until every child has access to the care they need to set them on the path to a healthy and successful life,” Children’s Hospital Los Angeles President and CEO Paul S. Viviano told the audience. “Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is incredibly grateful to each of you for your support, which helps our hospital provide transformative compassionate care at more than half a million patient visits per year.”Late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel touched millions of viewers around the world when he bravely shared the story about his son, William “Billy”, who was 3 days old when he received open-heart surgery at CHLA for tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, a rare congenital heart defect. Kimmel has been a stalwart advocate for health care coverage for all children and families in America.Billy’s surgeon, Vaughn A. Starnes, MD, was the evening’s special guest and mission ambassador. Dr. Starnes, co-director of the Heart Institute and founder of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, lauded the Kimmel family for their “bravery and sense of purpose” during Billy’s health challenges.“One of the best parts of my job is getting to know our brave young patients and their families and helping them fight formidable odds. Often they come to us when they’ve been told by other centers that nothing else can be done – and the Heart Institute offers them help,” Dr. Starnes explained. “One of those families that I’ve come to greatly admire is the Kimmel family. They’ve taken their own personal experience and shared it with the nation, and in doing so changed the conversation about health care.”“So many children, from so many financial backgrounds are cared for so beautifully and with so much compassion,” Kimmel said of CHLA, his voice breaking with emotion. “We can never repay them, but we’re going to try.”For 67 years Vin Scully delighted baseball lovers with his one-of-a-kind play-by-play for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since retiring in 2016, Scully has gained a new generation of listeners at CHLA by reading storybooks to patients in the hospital’s Literally Healing room. He’s also the voice of public service announcements supporting Proposition 4, the bond initiative to raise funds for children’s hospitals throughout California.“Two words that have always shaken my heart are ’children’s hospital,’ ” said Scully, who noted that he and his wife Sandi have been blessed with six children, 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. “Like every parent we worry a great deal…and then I visited that sacred place and saw the great spirit and dedication from those who work there.” He then implored the audience “to vote yes on Proposition 4 to gain more funds for children’s hospitals across the state.”Hasbro works passionately to create a universe where every child experiences hope, kindness and joy. The company has been a longtime CHLA supporter, providing charitable grants, product donations and employee volunteers at events throughout the year.“Giving back is part of our DNA, and we are incredibly proud to support this organization and the important work that you do,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro chairman and chief executive officer. “Around the world, almost all of our employees volunteer with children’s causes – and I know our employees who spend time here, with you, with the patients and families under your care, are especially honored by this recognition. They’ve seen first-hand your commitment to care, and the difference you make in the lives of children and families.”Emmy-nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson hosted the event, which celebrated the ongoing support from the evening’s honorees. Entertainment included Foo Fighters, who performed “Learn To Fly,” “My Hero,” and “Times Like These,” and Pharrell Williams, who concluded the evening with a set that included hit songs “Get Lucky,” and “Happy.” Williams danced onstage with 9-year-old CHLA patient Eliana Georges, who basked in the moment with her favorite singer, whispering in his ear and sharing a warm, tearful embrace.Pharrell Williams performs onstage with CHLA patient Eliana GeorgesEach honoree was presented with a one-of-a-kind hand-blown artisan glass award created by Cheryl Saban, PhD, an honorary director of the hospital’s Board of Directors and a member of the Foundation Board of Trustees.

Shopify Inc.’s scorching rally and Lightspeed POS Inc.’s successful trading debut this year are throwing the spotlight on who might be the next Canadian tech star to go public.A total of $1 billion (US$751 million) was invested in 142 venture capital deals in the first quarter, up 48 per cent from a year earlier, according to the Canadian Venture & Private Equity Association. More than half of that was in tech and increasingly from U.S. investors.Here’s what the founders of some of Canada’s hottest tech firms are saying about the future of their companies, and the potential for initial public offerings: Lightspeed POS buys Swiss startup to drive European expansion Lightspeed is writing a new chapter in the Canadian tech story Crackdown on big tech rivals could be ‘tremendous’ opportunity for Shopify, analyst says ClearbancClearbanc offers US$10,000 to US$10 million to startups to help fund their marketing campaigns on Facebook, Google and the like in return for a flat fee and a share of revenue.The Toronto-based alternative lender, founded in 2015, raised US$300 million in new funding led by Highland Capital Partners of the U.S., the largest disclosed VC-financing this year in Canada. That brings total funding to US$420 million.Clearbanc plans to start funding parts of a business that could turn into a repeatable revenue stream–infrastructure, shipping and sales commissions.It’s expanding outside the U.S. and Canada, where there’s a less developed venture ecosystem and “banks are more conservative,” according to co-founder and chief executive officer, Andrew D’Souza.“We think that the fundamentals of the business, the market opportunity, justifies a large standalone business,” D’Souza said about the possibility of an IPO.WattpadWattpad Corp. may no longer be a startup but its ambitions just keep growing. Founded as a mobile-reading app, 12-year-old Wattpad now calls itself a “multi-platform entertainment company.”The Toronto-based company has provided content for one of the most re-watched movies on Netflix (“The Kissing Booth”), a Hulu series (“Light as a Feather”), and this year a Hollywood feature film (“After”), all through Wattpad Studios, launched in 2016.Last week it inked a deal with Penguin Random House in the U.K. to turn its online content, mainly created and read by young women, into books. That follows the launch of its own publishing imprint, Wattpad Books, in the U.S. in April.The company uses data from more than 80 million monthly active users to identify the best stories across its platform and turn them into content. It has launched a paid, ad-free version as well as exclusive content for a fee.Wattpad has raised US$117.8 million from investors including OMERS Ventures, Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s capital arm, and August Capital Corp, and is generating revenue in “eight figures,” according to co-founder and chief executive, Allen Lau.As for an IPO, it’s “not what we spend time focusing on,” Lau said. “Our focus right now is on movies and TV shows, with our partners.”VidyardVidyard Inc. wants to be the YouTube of business videos. Its software allows companies to create personalized videos to engage with customers and use data from their viewing habits to analyze that engagement.Companies are expected to spend US$103 billion annually in video-ad marketing by 2023, according to Forrester Research.Vidyard counts 1,200 businesses in over 170 countries as its customers, including enterprise customers such as Honeywell International Inc., LinkedIn and Citibank.“In terms of the next two to three years, we’re just focused on consistent, hockey-stick style growth,” says Devon Galloway, co-founder and chief technology officer at Kitchener, Ontario-based Vidyard.Tdhe company has raised US$60 million to date from investors including OMERS Ventures, Inovia Capital and the venture capital arm of Salesforce Inc.Galloway said if Vidyard continues to grow as well as it has an IPO would certainly be on its path.WealthsimpleWealthsimple Inc., wishes to replace banks as a customer’s primary financial relationship, according to founder and chief executive, Michael Katchen.“We want to be a firm that demystifies money,” Katchen said in an interview in Bloomberg’s Toronto office. The investment services company has more than C$5 billion in assets under management and 175,000 customers in Canada, the U.S. and U.K.The robo-adviser favoured by millennials, is also targeting wealthier Canadians and has branched out into commission-free stock trading and savings products. Mortgages, life insurance and checking accounts could be next, Katchen said.Founded in 2014, WealthSimple is not yet profitable, but its backers are patient, Katchen said. These include Power Financial Corp., an investment arm run by the Desmarais family and Allianz SE.Katchen said he’s interested in an IPO but it’s still “a few years away.”Bloomberg.com
NEW YORK — A former Adidas consultant was sentenced Tuesday to one year of probation after prosecutors credited him with helping secure convictions against an executive for the shoe company and two others in a college basketball corruption scandal.Thomas “T.J.” Gassnola had pleaded guilty to being a fixer in a scheme to lure prized prospects to Adidas-sponsored hoops programs by funneling tens of thousands of dollars in secret payments to their families.“I’m sorry for the harm I caused in this matter,” Gassnola said at the hearing in federal court in Manhattan.U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan imposed the light sentence after being told in court papers that Gassnola’s co-operation was critical in expanding the scope of the investigation and providing an “insider’s view” of the corrupting influence of corporate money on college basketball.Gassnola, 47, became a key government witness at a trial last year in Manhattan where the self-described “recruitment facilitator” caused a stir by dropping the names of several top players at the centre of the scandal and referring to the deal-making as “black ops.”Asked what he meant by that, he responded, “It’s dark. Underground. You don’t want anyone to know about it.”While working under the direction of Adidas executive James Gatto, he said he paid out $15,000 in cash in 2015 to try to lure DeAndre Ayton to an Adidas school only to see him sign with Nike-sponsored Arizona. Ayton attended Arizona for his freshman season before being drafted No. 1 in the NBA by the Phoenix Suns.He also testified about meeting with the mother of McDonald’s All-American Billy Preston in a hotel room in 2016 to bring him to Kansas for $90,000, warning her away from other recruiters who were less discreet about the money.Grassnola also described how he texted then-Louisville head coach Rick Pitino in a panic in September 2017 when he first learned about the investigation into the payments made to the players, including Louisville recruit Brian Bowen Jr. He said he was “just looking for information” and “instinctively” reached out to the coach.There’s no evidence that Pitino responded to the text. The legendary coach was never accused of a crime but was fired amid the fallout.As part of probation, Gassnola will have to serve two months of home detention.Gatto, business manager Christian Dawkins and Merl Code, a former Adidas consultant, were convicted last year of conspiracy to commit wire fraud for funneling the illegal payments. Gatto was sentenced earlier this year to nine months in prison; Dawkins and Code got six months each.Tom Hays, The Associated Press
Terrelle Pryor has not lived up to all the hype he had coming into the 2008 season as the most sought after high school recruit in the country.Ohio State’s football messiah has thrown eight interceptions so far this season. That is more than any OSU starting quarterback at this point in the season since before 2003.His completion percentage is the lowest of any OSU quarterback since 2004, at 51 percent. That was the year Troy Smith and Justin Zwick shared starting duties and accumulated the worst season record this decade.Pryor’s passing yardage isn’t impressive either, sitting at 1169 through seven games. OSU hasn’t had that low of a mark since 2003, when Craig Krenzel and Scott McMullen shared the starting spot.Pryor isn’t even the top performer from his 2007 high school recruiting class. Most members of the college football world know the names Jacory Harris of Miami (Fla.), Jordan Jefferson of LSU and Andrew Luck of Stanford.Two of those three players’ teams boast better records than OSU and none of them have thrown for more interceptions than Pryor.Pryor also has the lowest completion percentage among the group and it’s not because he is used more. He’s third in attempts among the four.Two of the three other also have more passing yards than Pryor.All Ohio State fans remember where they were when Pryor signed, as if it were the second coming of Troy Smith. Looking back now, the signing of Harris, Jefferson or Luck may have been the better choice.Harris even has his name on most Heisman voters’ radars. Pryor hasn’t even sniffed that territory.This historic of a bust is only comparable to one instance in Ohio football history, in the professional ranks. It happened in 1999 when a quarterback named Tim Couch was drafted first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 1999 NFL draft.Cleveland fans were excited for Couch coming into the league to be their savior, but it was not to be. Couch only mustered one playoff appearance and sunk into mediocrity.Couch was picked ahead of Pro-Bowlers Donovan McNabb and Dante Culpepper who have had success since they were drafted into the league, McNabb more than Culpepper.Pryor had his one great season last year behind a strong defense and a superior quarterback, who Pryor somehow started ahead of.He is destined to ride off into the NFL draft after next season to try to prove himself at the professional level.Having accomplished next to nothing as a college quarterback, Pryor will leave Ohio State to rebuild itself after one of the worst recruiting choices in our program’s history.Terrelle Pryor, prove me wrong.

She was 19; she was only 19. She was Greek Australian. She was someone’s daughter. She had loving, supportive parents. She started taking ice a year and a half ago. She mixed with the wrong crowd, she had low self-esteem, she met the wrong man who involved her in the world of sex work to aid her addiction. She went to jail and got clean. The future looked good, she was going to stay clean, go back to school, she left jail positive and confident she had kicked ice out of her life, she had supports in place to do so. Not two weeks out of jail she was found dead with a needle still in her arm. She was ice’s victim – the cruel, highly addictive drug took her young life. As sad as this story is, of a wasted life caused through a drug that is as cruel as it is predatory on lost souls, who unwillingly find themselves the victims, it is not uncommon in the Greek Australian community. In 2012, the Greek community was shocked when a 25-year-old Greek Australian boy gunned down his grandparents in their Yarraville home just three days before Christmas. The young man was on a cocktail of drugs including methamphetamines. Before the shootings, he was convinced he had to kill his grandparents after becoming obsessed with a “paranoid fantasy”.This year, three people, including Inimi and Savvas Menelaou, died in an Oakleigh car crash caused by 30-year-old driver who was on ice. Their son Menalaos Menelaou was in a critical condition in the Royal Alfred Hospital following the crash. And another Greek Australian was impacted by the same car crash. Passenger Elias Mesiridis was in a stable condition and 29-year-old Maria Mesiridis was in a stable but serious condition at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. The Greek community was rocked following this car crash that impacted the lives of more than the two families who suffered at the hands of the driver – an ice user. Helen Andrianakis, Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Petitioner, psychiatric nurse, Mental Health Services, was the nurse who found the young 19-year-old Greek Australian girl dead, alone in her house. It’s her job to follow up on drug users after their release from prison. When the young victim wasn’t answering her phone, Ms Andrianakis called the police and together they broke into her house to find that she had overdosed. For her this was a sad case, but not uncommon in the Greek Australian community. She gives another example, of a 48-year-old family man who proves once again, this drug does not discriminate.“He was 48, and had never used drugs in his life,” she starts.“He was a successful businessman, father of three, he started chatting to this woman on Facebook; she was 25-years-old, worked as a prostitute and was on ice.” She says he began using ice because of her and within three months he was hooked. He destroyed his family, his business, his wife kicked him out and when he got caught dealing in ice, he was incarcerated.“It’s an unpleasant drug,” says Ms Andrianakis matter-of-factly. The destruction this drug has caused, and the destruction that is yet to come as warned following the release of a report by the Australian Crime Commission, is unparalleled. According to the report, the number of national Amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) arrests continued to increase, with 22,189 arrests in 2012-13 – the highest on record. Amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) stimulate the central nervous system and speed up messages travelling between the brain and the rest of the body. Made in illegal clandestine laboratories, ATS pose a serious health risk to users due to their unknown content and purity.“You see things completely differently, you are hot and cold, it’s like you have a split personality,” Ms Andrianakis tells Neos Kosmos of the effects of ice. “One minute you are okay, then the next minute you are neurotic, anxious and nervous.” The drug ice affects a user’s brain, memory, so they feel as though they are “constantly scattered”.“They have aggressive outbursts, their kidneys fail, their heart fails, they are at high risk of having seizures, they get depressed, they get anxious, they are constantly paranoid. “Their brain is damaged severely; there is evidence that ice damages the brain cells,” she says. Not only this, but it also affects your appearance as you begin to develop scabs on your face and body, it damages your teeth and you lose a lot of weight, and she says, you see all these changes in a person within only a few months of use. But it’s the impact this drug has on families, friends, on day-to-day relationships that seems to impact the Greek community the most. Being a Greek Australian, Ms Andrianakis says she gets a lot of parents contact her who are suspicious that their children may be taking drugs, specifically ice. “You can’t maintain a relationship [with an ice user],” says Ms Andrianakis. From the Greek Australian point of view, she says simply “it destroys families”. *Mary (whose name has been withheld for anonymity) says her family has been destroyed by her brother’s addiction to ice. When he started using ice, his family suffered due to his violent outbursts and mood swings. He also nearly sent his parents’ business bankrupt as “he took everything from [his parents’] business”. The ice addiction made him become a chronic liar and she says the family is unsure of what to believe and they question everything he says. And now her relationship with her brother is non-existent – all because of ice. In some cases, Ms Andrianakis sees ice users turn to criminal activity to fund their habit, but in other cases she sees parents being abused, bashed, left bankrupt by their children using ice, and parents who accept these behaviours as they don’t want to be seen as “giving up on their child”.“What a family member should do is try and engage with family services; in the community parents can go to local community health centres, their local GPs, there are drug and alcohol clinicians,” she says, adding if the user is incarcerated then they have other channels of support. Ms Andrianakis has observed an element of denial in the Greek community, adding “mental health and drug and alcohol addiction are not a sexy topic to the community” and that the community needs to be more aware.In some cases, the parents can’t understand why it’s happened to them, why their child is on drugs when they’ve given them a good home and education, but Ms Andrianakis says they need to understand that drug addiction is not about them and they need to be supportive to their child. She has noticed that it may be difficult for first generations to understand mental illness that can be the result of ice addiction. The reason this drug is so addictive is because it gives users a “sense of power”, with Ms Andrianakis adding she’s seen clients who haven’t slept for weeks. Because it’s a relatively new drug on the market, she says the full impact is yet to be seen and has gathered momentum in the last eight or so years. “It’s getting worse,” says the psychiatric nurse, “a lot of people think it’s a party drug and you stay up and dance all night, and you do … but you also destroy your life.” Australia has been warned by the report that the ice problem is reaching “pandemic” proportions. Victoria Police deputy commissioner Graham Ashton revealed to the media that bikie gangs and overseas criminal syndicates were taking advantage of the highly addictive aspect of ice “to actively hook thousands of young Victorians”.One of those was the 19-year-old Greek Australian girl, who died alone, with a needle in her arm. She could have been your sister, your cousin, your daughter. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
Former Barca star Xavi believes Adrien Rabiot would make a great addition to Barcelona’s midfield, yet stating he hardly takes rumours seriously.There have been reports in Spain this week that Barca officials met with Paris Saint-Germain Rabiot to agree personal terms ahead of a transfer as PSG were also reported to be willing to allow the midfielder leave for a fee in the region of €40million.“He’s a player of an excellent level technically,” Xavi told Mundo Deportivo quoted in FourFourTwo when asked about Rabiot.“He could play perfectly as a central midfielder at Barca. He could contribute a lot, but that’s already entering the realms of speculation.“I’ve been asked a lot about Griezmann this summer and, in the end, he stayed at Atletico. But if Rabiot comes, he’d be a great signing.”Xavi also believes that Arthur from Gremio – a new arrival – has the “DNA” of the Catalans while admitting that having to compare the Brazilian with himself or former captain Andres Iniesta will mount so much pressure on Arthur.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“I’ve seen a few videos of him. There are a lot of Brazilians here at the Aspire academy who have spoken very well of him,” said the Al Sadd midfielder.“I think he’s a player who is perfectly adaptable to Barca. He has what we call the Barca DNA, that technical quality, that talent you need. After that, it depends on him, his mentality and whether he is ready to play for a good team.”When asked about the comparisons between himself and Arthur, he added:“I don’t like it. I didn’t like being compared with [Pep] Guardiola or anyone, it’s not easy to digest, it’s a weight on top of you and that’s not good.“He has to make his own career, show his own personality. If we leave him in peace, he’ll succeed, but it’s very difficult at Barca, very difficult.”
Facilitator Rachael Miller listens to ideas from the locals in the room and writes them down on the paper behind her. (Kayla Desroches / KMXT)How do locals get good food when the produce shipped up from the Lower 48 is often so expensive and not so fresh? It’s an issue of concern for rural areas across the state.Listen nowFor some people, the answer is to cultivate a garden. For others, it’s about providing education. That’s some of what attendees talked about at an open forum last week hosted by the the Kodiak Area Native Association and funded in part by the First Nations Development Institute.Alaska Pacific University Professor Rachael Miller facilitates the forum. Joining her are community members, gardeners, and local food fans.They brainstorm, split up into groups and share their thoughts.Jane Eisemann brought up the disregard for food’s value and talked about the food waste she’s observed. She said she’s watched high school students chuck food into the garbage at lunch.“I just see this as a cultural issue maybe in parts of the United States where food is just something you gotta have, and you put it in your mouth, and you swallow it as quick as possible and taste be damned. It’s gotta be fast, it’s gotta convenient,” Eisemann said. “There’s nothing sacred about food or the sharing of food or the taste of food.”It may indicate a disconnect between consumer and grower.In Kodiak, some gardeners sell their produce at the farmer’s market in the summer. KANA project coordinator Tyler Kornelis – who helped organize the forum – says the community needs to put control back into their hands.“Even if it costs a little bit more from time to time, you still have to purchase locally to be able to sustain that living wage that was talked about earlier,” Kornelis said.Other concepts people toss around are a shorter work week to make time for gardening and exchanging services and food with neighbors.Miller, who wrote everything down as it came at her, later said she, like the attendees, has a lot of ideas. She said they point to a big question.“Are we going to continue to be beholden to a transportation system to deliver food or are we gonna focus on investing resources to grow more here? That’s kind of the fork in the road where we’re at,” Miller said. “My job is to develop ideas around opportunities for each of those areas and what that looks like, and that’s what I’ll be primarily spending the next three months researching.”Miller said, at the end of that period, she’ll release a Kodiak region food sovereignty assessment.“The goal of the report is to figure out our baseline,” Miller said. So, where are we at? We are looking at the costs and implications of food system breakdown, so what happens if the boat doesn’t come in and continues to not come in, opportunities for food production, and people’s perception of food access right now.”Miller said she’ll publish the assessment at the end of August.
Dhanush.PR HandoutDhanush, who is already busy with multiple projects, is now in the race to acquire rights to remake the hit Hindi movie, Article 15.According to The Times of India, Dhanush is one among many who are trying to procure the remake rights of the movie. “Many filmmakers from south have expressed their interest in remaking the film, and Dhanush, who is known for backing movies with good content, has also shown keen interest,” a source told TOI.However, it is unclear whether the actor wants to star in the movie or restrict himself as the producer.Article 15 is an investigative thriller directed by Anubhav Sinha. The movie revolves around the rape and murder of two teenage Dalit girls in Uttar Pradesh’s Lalgaon. It deals with the contentious issue of caste-based oppression sensitively. Although the movie had met with opposition from a section of the audience, it turned out to be a profitable venture by grossing Rs 64 crore at the box office.The subject seems to have caught Dhanush’s attention because of the rampant casteism in Tamil Nadu.However, Dhanush has a few movies in his kitty. He is working on Vetrimaaran’s Asuran and will be also teaming up for the second part of Vada Chennai. The actor has teamed up with RS Durai Senthilkumar for Pattas.
HT ImamThe prime minister’s political affairs adviser HT Imam on Wednesday claimed that premier Sheikh Hasina was trying to extend her assistance for holding a fair election in the country.He, however, admitted that still there are some barriers to a fair election.”Prime minister Sheikh Hasina is doing everything necessary for holding fair elections. There’re some problems over holding a fair election, and we’re trying to resolve those,” he told newsmen after an exchange of view with diplomats and other stakeholders.Imam expressed his views that the political parties and the media need to cooperate with the election commission (EC) in holding credible elections.Leaders of major political parties, civil society members and election observers joined the meeting with some diplomats over the next general election atmosphere, reports UNB.Canada and National Democratic Institute (NDI) jointly organised the programme at a city hotel. Diplomats from Australia, Sweden, Norway, Japan, Canada and some other countries were present.The closed-door meeting that began around 8:30am continued for around two hours.HT Imam said they discussed various issues relating to the 11th parliamentary elections.BNP standing committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury said they talked about the necessary steps that should be taken for ensuring an acceptable election.He said their party and alliance joined the election though the EC could not ensure a level-playing field. “We hope the election commission will take necessary measures in the days to come to ensure a neutral election.”Awami League joint general secretary Dipu Moni said they discussed how the election can be held in a batter way.She said the government is providing the election commission with all-out cooperation so that it can arrange the election independently exercising its constitutional authorities.Civil society body Broti CEO Sharmin Murshid said it was a very important discussion as all the election stakeholders participated in it. “We hope such discussions will help reduce tension and instability, and pave the way for holding a credible election.”Former election commissioner and retired brigadier general M Sakhawat Hussain said Bangladesh has many outstanding achievements. “These achievements can fade away if the election is not held in a fair and credible manner.”The prime minister’s foreign affairs adviser Gowher Rizvi, the BNP chairperson’s adviser Reaz Rahman, Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh presidium member Shamsher Mobin Chowdhury and civil society platform Shujan secretary Badiul Alam Majumder were, among others, present.
File photoCow milk, curd and fodder of the country are contaminated with different types of harmful chemical elements, antibiotics and lead, found a government study.The chemical elements, once consumed by human, can be harmful for the health to the extent of causing cancer, experts said.National Food Safety Labratory (NFSL) conducted the research collecting samples from different parts of the country. The findings of the survey were revealed at a programme at the Public Health Institute auditorium in Dhaka on Sunday.United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) provided the fund for researching cow fodder, milk, curd and packaged milk.According to the study, almost all the samples of fodder contained excessive level of antibiotics. Some even contained pesticides, lead or chromium.The cow fodder samples were found to be contaminated with different harmful chemicals. Among 30 samples, pesticides were found in two samples, chromium in 16, tetracycline in 22, enrofloxacin in 26, ciprocin in 30 and aflatoxin in four samples. NFSL collected 96 samples of cow milk from different parts of the country.Pesticides were found in 9 per cent samples, tetracycline in 13 per cent, lead in 15 per cent and microbial factors were found in 96 per cent of the samples.Excessive amount of tetracycline was found in 30 per cent of packaged milk while microbial factors were found in 66 to 80 per cent of the samples.Among 33 samples of curd, microbial factors were found in 51 per cent of the samples. One sample was contaminated with lead.When asked, Lutful Kabir, a teacher of pharmacological study department at Dhaka University, said, “Those chemical elements will damage the body’s immune system.”He further said that finding lead and chromium in milk is alarming. Those chemical elements will ultimately cause cancer.The chemicals may enter the body of a cow through fodder or through steroid used for fattening, said public health expert Obaidur Rab. “The research has shown us that the issue of public health is being neglected in the field level,” he added.Obaidur, also country director of Population Council, recommended that sanitary inspectors should be trained in identifying those harmful chemicals.

Behind the scenes, the private sector has seconded people who are working to ensure the model is financially and economically robust and sustainable.A team of actuaries, seconded by the banks and insurers and managed by the Association for Savings and Investment SA, is crunching the numbers to determine a viable funding model. The model, which seeks to offer fully subsidised education to the very poor, will include both loans and grants for the “missing middle”, with the amount to be repaid determined by income after students graduate.Funding will come from existing and new streamsUltimately it will include NSFAS funding, as well as private sector funding, donations and debt funding. The new B-BEE codes suggest that private sector firms voluntarily contribute 6% of payroll, up from 3%, to skills funding. On the debt side, the model envisages various levels of debt funding including social bonds, DFI funding and commercial funding from long term investors such as pension funds.Nxasana is loath at this stage to put a figure on the size of the funding pot, or the number of students that the system will be able to fund – although he has a rough estimate in mind.Public policy, tax and legislative requirementsA team from Webber Wentzel is working to fulfil the public policy, tax and legislative requirements that such a model will demand.Systems requirementsSoftware developers are busy with the systems that will allow the financial scheme to run efficiently and reach across all of South Africa’s universities and colleges. Nxasana reels off at least five systems that require development. For instance, means testing which is a manual process and open to fraud and abuse needs to be automated. A student management system is essential. “We need to link with university and college portals to monitor student academic activity. If we are going to provide support, we need to know immediately that a student is not coping.” Call centres, debtor management systems – these all need to be developed.“These are massive undertakings,” says Nxasana. “They cannot be completed in a few weeks.”Rollout 2018Assuming all goes well with the pilots, Nxasana is hopeful that the full funding programme can be rolled out in 2018. Initially it will run parallel to NSFAS and as and when NSFAS is capacitated, the two will merge.Read the original article on Moneyweb WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite New model for tertiary education funding“We have a solution to the student fees problem,” says the former CEO of FirstRand Siswe Nxasana, now the driver behind a public-private partnership working around the clock behind the scenes to create a new funding model to resolve South Africa’s tertiary education funding crisis.With students rioting across the country and arson the order of the day, few problems are more pressing but with a new solution in sight the mayhem and destruction is becoming all the more senseless.In an interview with our sister site Moneyweb, Nxasana, who is also currently the chairman of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), says this new funding model will be piloted at six to eight universities and a number of technical education colleges next year and will offer free education to those that currently cannot afford it.Discussed with stakeholdersIt has been discussed in a series of meetings involving all of South Africa’s stakeholders, including student groups.In a nutshell the model aims to provide funding for students whose parents or caregivers earn less than R600 000 a year. This is considerably more than is currently available through NSFAS and would include students that fall into the so-called “missing middle”.Like NSFAS, this funding will be designed to cover tuition and living expenses. However, the model goes further in that it will provide students with academic support as well as life-skills and social skills.Skills shortage will be addressedIt is also designed to address SA’s acute skills shortage – there will be increased focus on funding those qualifications that are in demand, as well as scarce skills, says Nxasana in the Moneyweb interview.“What we are trying to do is resolve the skills supply / demand imbalance that exists in the country.”Strong relationships between business and institutions of learningBusiness will build stronger relationships with institutions to ensure that the students produced are employable. This means ensuring that curricula are relevant and of high quality.“With a few exceptions mainly in professional qualifications, this has hardly been done before,” says Nxasana.

The ANP’s full report will be released Friday. It will show “the accident could have been avoided if Chevron had conducted its operations while fully adhering to the regulations of the ANP and industrywide best practices, as well as its own procedure manual,” Chambriard said.She added that the agency would fine Chevron about the maximum allowed under Brazilian law, upward of $25 million. Chevron and driller Transocean Ltd. are facing an $11 billion lawsuit that a federal prosecutor filed earlier this year.“We disagree with the report’s characterization of our safety culture,” Chevron’s statement read. “We are confident that at all times during the Frade incident we acted appropriately and responsibly.”The crude began seeping from cracks in the ocean floor near a Chevron well in November. Two weeks after the leak, the ANP said the seepage was under control. But in March, oil again started leaking and Chevron voluntarily suspended production in the field.Chevron, based in San Ramon, California, said after the November leak that it had underestimated the pressure in an underwater reservoir, so crude rushed up a bore hole and eventually escaped into the surrounding seabed some 230 miles (370 kilometers) off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. The oil seeped from at least seven narrow fissures on the ocean floor, all within 160 feet (50 meters) of the wellhead. No oil reached Brazilian shores. More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates The leak paled in comparison with the 2010 spill from a BP PLC well in the Gulf of Mexico, which at its peak spewed more than 2 million gallons (7.5 million liters) a day. Brazil also has had bigger oil spills than Chevron’s.In 2000, crude spewed from a broken pipeline at the Reduc refinery in Rio de Janeiro’s scenic Guanabara Bay, spewing at least 343,000 gallons into the water. Just a few months later, more than 1 million gallons of crude burst from a pipeline operated by the state-controlled Petrobas oil company into a river in southern Brazil. Brazil’s worst oil disaster was in 1975, when an oil tanker from Iraq dumped more than 30 million gallons into Rio’s bay.Earlier this year, Brazilian authorities banned Chevron from any new drilling or water-injection activities at working wells in the country.“For the moment, in order for Chevron to drill, it must prove to the ANP that it will be doing so in an absolutely safe way, recognizing its errors and mitigating those errors. … We need to avoid the possibility of another accident,” Chambriard said.Chevron has said it followed all laws and best practices while drilling offshore, but the ANP said Thursday that its investigation found the company at fault. In April, a Brazilian prosecutor filed an $11 billion lawsuit against Chevron and the Switzerland-based Transocean for both the leak in November and the one in March, alleging they caused environmental damage. Prosecutors also asked that Chevron be temporarily prohibited from sending any profits made in Brazil outside the country.A month before that lawsuit, federal prosecutors filed criminal charges against 17 Chevron and Transocean executives accusing them of environmental crimes, of misleading ANP about safety plans and of not providing accurate information in the wake of the spill. The charges carry a maximum penalty of 31 years in prison.Last week, however, federal police in Rio de Janeiro said their investigation into the oil leak, which was carried out because of the court cases, found that the spill caused no significant environmental damage.Judges must still decide if the cases will go to trial, which would be a lengthy process given the number of defendants, the complexity of the case and the Brazilian legal system’s room for numerous appeals.___Associated Press writer Bradley Brooks in Sao Paulo contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Top Stories An ANP emailed statement said the investigation determined Chevron “was not able to correctly interpret the geology and local fluid dynamics” of the reservoir when the leak occurred. It blamed Chevron’s water-injection practices for the reservoir pressure.The ANP also said that Chevron “dismissed” test results from drilling three other wells in the same area that “indicated the necessity to change the project” and that the company “contradicted its own manual” by not using enough pressure while drilling an exploratory well.The regulator said further that Chevron didn’t respond properly once the leak began.“Despite strong indications of an underground blowout, Chevron was slow in acknowledging the situation, resulting in the initial adoption of ineffective methodology to control the well,” the ANP email said. “If Chevron had identified the underground blowout immediately, the volume of oil released into the sea would have been significantly lower.”The company disagreed.“Chevron Brasil’s rapid response to the November incident brought the well under control in four days. … The well was successfully plugged and abandoned. We have and will continue to engage openly and transparently with all Brazilian authorities and regulatory agencies,” the company’s statement said. 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Parents, stop beating yourself up Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – An investigation by regulators found that Chevron Corp. could have prevented an offshore oil leak last year and that the spill was larger than previously estimated, the head of Brazil’s National Petroleum Agency said Thursday.Magda Chambriard, who runs the agency known as ANP, said at a news conference that about 155,000 gallons seeped into the ocean from cracks in the seabed floor near a Chevron well in the Frade field. Previous estimates put the leak at about 110,000 gallons, which a Chevron statement said is the figure it sticks by.

Ashok Gulati | Published: July 20 2015 12:14 am Given that in the first three years of the 12th Plan (2012-17) the average rate of growth in agri-GDP has been a mere 17 per cent against a target of 4 per cent there is cause for concern as this is leading to agrarian distress Related News Speaking at the foundation day celebrations of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) on July 12 Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that there were reasons to smile on the economic front as India remains a bright spot despite the global slowdown He talked about the 7-8 per cent overall growth in hand and the 8-10 per cent growth that is realisable in the near future But he admitted that agriculture remains a concern and promised that as tax revenue goes up an increasing share would be spent on building a strong and vibrant agricultural sector Nabard can play an important role in that process It has completed 33 years of service to the nation From 1982 to 2015 it has come a long way in terms of extending rural credit for myriad programmes ranging from rural roads and irrigation under the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund to building value chains with farmer producer organisations (FPOs) and micro-finance initiatives Of late it has also acquired the distinction of being accredited as the first national implementing entity (NIE) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change As an NIE Nabard is supposed to lead and promote work on climate change adaptation and mitigation especially in agriculture and rural development activities Given that in the first three years of the 12th Plan (2012-17) the average rate of growth in agri-GDP has been a mere 17 per cent against a target of 4 per cent there is cause for concern as this is leading to agrarian distress No wonder Nabard chose “mitigating agrarian distress and enhancing farm income” as a suitable topic for discussion which was inaugurated by Jaitley It is worth sharing some of the takeaways from this seminar attended by several brilliant speakers who have devoted their lives to Indian agriculture and rural development What are the root causes of agrarian distress today Basically two factors: monsoons and markets A drought last year followed by unseasonal rains that damaged the rabi crop and falling global agri-prices which are pushing down domestic farm prices of several commodities from rice and corn to sugar and groundnuts Farmers’ incomes have plummeted and many cannot service their loans raising demands for a loan waiver Small and fragmented holdings excessive specialisation and input intensification of agriculture as well as restrictive markets also contribute to the increasing distress What could be the policy solutions A major focus is needed on water for irrigation — both in terms of developing irrigation in a cost-effective manner to drought-proof agriculture but also managing our water resources more efficiently Since the pricing of water and power for irrigation is highly subsidised — at places even free — it is but natural for farmers to go for water-heavy crops like rice and sugarcane wherever they get access to water Both are being produced in excess of domestic requirements India exported 12 million metric tonne of rice in 2014-15 becoming the largest exporter of rice for the third year in a row Sugar is also in plenty but cannot be exported due to low global prices creating a major crisis in the sugar industry of cane arrears touching unprecedented levels of Rs 21000 crore In any case exports of rice and sugar mean exporting billions of cubic meters of scarce water This must be rationalised through innovative policies that can reward farmers for saving water (and power) and diversifying away from water-guzzling crops Can Nabard take up this challenge under its new role as an NIE of the GCF by promoting sustainable and more diversified agriculture It could have a high pay-off Jaitley mentioned that the government is committed to enhancing investment in irrigation to tackle droughts The government has already raised the funding of the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) to Rs 50000 crore for the next five years Since this programme consolidates the watershed management and accelerated irrigation benefit schemes one will have to wait and see how much more money is really being put into the PMKSY Nevertheless the policy seems to be a step in the right direction But to deliver more crop for every drop of water could Nabard spearhead the promotion of innovative farming practices (such as the system of rice intensification and precision farming) and technologies (like drip and check dams) through its network of NGOs and FPOs This is a worthwhile agenda for Nabard to follow Jaitley also mentioned overhauling the existing crop insurance system to make it more robust and responsive to farmers’ needs and that the government is currently working on this While irrigation will take time to deliver crop insurance can be fixed relatively quickly and it could act as an effective coping strategy to contain farmer distress This is another area where Nabard could chip in On the markets front there is a consensus that we need to organise farmers into groups (FPOs cooperatives or any other form) to create scale and integrate them with commodity value chains For building value chains and ensuring farmers get their due share a lot of market reforms will be needed — from changes in the APMC regime to building infrastructure (rural roads warehouses etc) Nabard is already doing quite a bit of work in this area and could scale up its operations to make sure that farmers get a good remunerative price for their produce Building value chains can also create millions of off-farm jobs within the rural economy But linking FPOs to front-end organised retailers or food processors will be a challenge as both are at a nascent stage and many states do not even allow organised retail The announcement of an e-national market by the government cannot take off unless several of these hurdles are cleared and grading of products introduced from the beginning Thus in brief agrarian distress can be relieved and farmers’ incomes enhanced with better irrigation and water management more diversified agriculture robust science-based crop insurance as well as better access to markets?
