SPORT-SINDHU 3 LAST

first_imgSindhu, who said she had been working on her on-court Sindhu, who said she had been working on her on-court movement, pointed out that her extra height gave her some advantages but there were also some drawbacks. “I have been doing footwork programme and have been doing various sessions to move faster. My strong point always has been my attacking game, but nowadays nobody is giving that (leeway to) attack. Because I am tall (6-foot, 10-inches) everybody plays a fast game and downward strokes. “I have been doing more of downward stroke (countering) because against players who are tall they (opponents) dont give chances to attack. They keep you more in defence. There are advantages as well as disadvantages with being tall. One thing (advantage) is the (better) reach, (but) they make you bend a lot more,” she said. Asked about her marginally better record against top Chinese players in comparison to her senior compatriot Saina, Sindhu said their approach was different. “Saina has a different style of play. She plays more of attack nowadays and Im playing more of rallies. Its totally different – the way Saina plays them and I play them,” she said. Sindhu hailed her senior compatriot and London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal saying that she been a huge inspiration, especially with her experience in representing the country in past Olympic Games and doing well. “Its always good for the country that she has been doing really well and has brought many laurels. She has been achieving and achieved a lot for the country. “At the same time (looking at her feats), I feel I should play much better and work harder to prove myself. Basically she has been a inspiration. She has much more experience as a player and its her third Olympics.” Asked about the likelihood of facing Saina across the court in Rio, Sindhu said, “Definitely that (possibility) will be there. Only one (of us) can win if that happens. Off court we are friends, but on court the rivalry is there.” She recalled Sainas return to Hyderabad four years ago after becoming the countrys first-ever Olympic medallist in badminton in London. “When she came back we all congratulated her. There was a big thing, people coming and greeting her. It felt great.” “No, I have not asked her to show the medal,” she added. PTI SSR GK PM PMadvertisementlast_img read more

Fantasy: Bargain Bin XI

first_imgAll too often people look at cheap players as a way to just fill out their team once the superstars have already been added. While understandable, this is not always the best way to add value to your squad.To that point, despite the historic year that Mohamed Salah had, he still ended it as the sixth most valuable player in the Goal game. So, as we head into the 2018-19 season, let’s take a look in the bargain bin to see who could provide the most value this year.Goal-Fantasy-Football-Play-Now-Banner Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? 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! GK: Asmir Begovic – Bournemouth, £5.6m, owned in 1.23% of teamsDEF: Aaron Cresswell – West Ham, owned in £5.9m, 1.33% of teamsAfter a disappointing year in 2016-17, Creswell bounced back in a big way last season. He led all defenders with seven assists and finished top 10 in his position in both chances created and accurate crosses. The only thing that kept him from finishing that high in points was the fact that West Ham simply were not very good in defence.However, with a significant improvement made at goalkeeper in the shape of Lukasz Fabianski, they should see both an increase in clean sheets and a decrease in goals allowed. The Hammers have a difficult start to the season, but Cresswell will definitely be worth owning for stretches of this seasonDEF: Patrick van Aanholt – Crystal Palace, £5.8m, owned in 6.02% of teamsCharlie Daniels Bournemouth Manchester CityDEF: Charlie Daniels – Bournemouth, £5.7m, owned in 1.91% of teamsMID: Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Arsenal, £7.0m, owned in 6.39% of teamsMkhitaryan didn’t exactly have the season he would have wanted last year, but still ended up with nine assists in just 20 starts. In fact, everyone who created more assists played at least 400 more minutes. Now with a full pre-season to build up a chemistry with strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, he could rack up even more creative statistics in 2018-19.Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain scored an incredible 108 goals last season and, if he can bring any decent percentage of that with him London, Arsenal and Mkhitaryan could be in for a very big season indeed.MID: Diogo Jota – Wolverhampton, £6.2m, owned in 5.11% of teamsDiscussed here.Gylfi Sigurdsson EvertonMID: Gylfi Sigurdsson – Everton, £6.7m, owned in 5.74% of teamsMID: Ryan Sessegnon – Fulham, £6.3m, owned in 18.65% of teams Last season, Ryan Sessegnon had one of the best season’s that the Championship has seen in quite some time. He racked up an incredible 16 goals and five assists while playing the majority of his matches at left-back. After the arrival of Matt Targett at Fulham, Sessegnon was given far more minutes as a winger which helped him rack up an impressive 179 touches in the box, third best in the league.Obviously, his counting stats will regress some due to the quality of opposition but, at just £6.3m in the Goal game, Sessegnon looks a fantastic value and his current ownership certainly reflects that.FOR: Christian Benteke – £6.9m, owned in 1.49% of teamsDiscussed here.Christian Benteke Crystal PalaceFOR: Richarlison – £6.9m, owned in 2.42% of teamsThis one is obviously a gamble due to his late-season struggles, but the upside is certainly still there. He racked up an impressive five goals and eight assists in the first half of the season and then, when Marco Silva left, he did not contribute towards another goal for the rest of the season. Now, by joining Everton, he will be under the tutelage of the manager who got the most out of him last season.There certainly are signs that he will get back to his best as well seeing as he managed to end the season with more touches in the box (143) than everyone aside from Sterling. The fact that he’s a midfielder listed as a forward does dent his value a little bit, but a Richarlison could yield significant returns for those that take the chance on him.FOR: Aleksandar Mitrovic – £6.7m, owned in 4.5% of teams goal-fantasy-football-banner Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

A Little Math

first_imgPhoto Attribution: Icon SMIMy head is spinning. I was pretty sure OSU was toast, until I did some math. Consider the following:The BCS formula is made up of three parts: the computer poll average, the Harris Poll average, and the Coaches Poll average.OSU is 3rd in four of the six computer polls right now (you throw out the lowest and highest rank). Alabama is 2nd in all four of those.There are 174 voters combined in the Harris and Coaches polls (59 coaches and 115 Harris-ers). A perfect “human vote” is 4,350 “human points” or 174 (all the voters) * 25 (“points” you get for being ranked #1). LSU’s “human score” right now is 4,350 (as it should be).Alabama’s “human score” is 4,167 (a unanimous #2 score would be 4,176).Oklahoma State’s “human score is 3,659 (a unanimous #3 score would be 4,002)Let’s say OSU goes out and strokes OU to the point that every coach and every Harris-er votes them at least #3, they would then have 4,002 “human points.”And let’s say the computers get giddy for OSU again (as they have been all year) and three of them swap Bama and OSU (not out of the question, given OSU’s top fifteen ranking).After all that, OSU would then need 40 of those 174 human voters (who already moved OSU up in their minds to at least #3) to say “man, I don’t want to see a rematch, I’m going to go ahead and put OSU at #2 and Bama at #3.” Again, not likely, but not that unfeasible.Note: this would need to be the right split since there are more Harris voters than coaches. 28 Harris-ers and 12 coaches doing this would get the job done. (thanks to CT for pointing this out)That would get it done. We’d be counting decimal points, but I’m pretty sure that would do the trick. And we’d have Gundy against Les for the national title.In a not-so-completely unrelated note: here’s a list of all 115 Harris Poll voters. I also deplore myself for using the term “human points” in a post about college football.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Ronaldo hits lowest point in over a decade

first_imgPrimera División Cristiano Ronaldo hits lowest point in over a decade Stephen Crawford Last updated 2 years ago 23:17 11/8/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(4) Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Las Palmas Getty Images Primera División Cristiano Ronaldo Atlético Madrid v Real Madrid Real Madrid Atlético Madrid The Real Madrid man has suffered a surprisingly poor start to the season – the worst he has endured in quite some time It’s no secret that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t enjoyed the best of starts to the 2017-18 term, with last season’s exploits from the man himself and his team making it all the more surprising. Real Madrid won La Liga, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup in a historic season that saw the capital side pick up their first ever treble.Real Madrid 13/10 to beat Atletico Madrid Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Ronaldo was very much at the heart of those victories, with the Portuguese netting an impressive 25 Liga goals and 42 across all competitions, and Madrid looked set to dominate again this year with the 32-year-old in such stellar form.But that hasn’t been the case. The current Ballon d’Or holder’s troubles started early after receiving a five-match ban for shoving referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea in the wake of being shown a red card for diving against Barcelona in the Spanish Supercup.It was always going to be an uphill battle to catch the evergreen Lionel Messi – currently on 12 goals and three assists – in the scoring charts, but no one expected Ronaldo to be struggling so badly this far into the season. In fact, the attacker’s measly return of one goal in seven league matches is the worst start he has had since the 2005-06 season when he was still at Manchester United.1 – Cristiano Ronaldo has scored only one goal in La Liga this season, his worst tally after 7 league games since … 2005/06 (0 goal in 7 PL games with Manchester United). Anomaly. pic.twitter.com/9fJkVZND1A— OptaJean (@OptaJean) November 8, 2017His club mates have leapt to his defence, with Casemiro and Sergio Ramos backing their talisman to score plenty more goals for the club, while boss Zinedine Zidane has made moves to stem talks of a crisis on the Portuguese’s part.But, with the world asking what’s wrong with Ronaldo and a Madrid derby with bitter cross-town rivals Atletico up next, CR7 will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes sooner rather than later.last_img read more

Tour Diary Men’s 50’s

first_imgAfter victory over the Kiwis in Game 2 on Saturday and taking the series the team completed our ice baths and headed back to the hotel for a swim and relax, followed by a team dinner. There was still some concern in our camp for our winger Pete Knowles  who was knocked out in game one and still feeling quite poorly. After dinner the team, minus Pete, headed out to catch the Cowboys versus Raiders NRL match as guests of  former ACT and Australian Touch Footballer turned Cowboys coach Neil Henry. After the match the players did a bit of mingling with the Raiders who were guests at the accommodation for dinner. A tired bunch of the players then went  to their rooms to watch a bit of World Cup Soccer action, but most didn’t make the kick off. On Sunday we had an early breakfast, and final preparations for the remaining match. There was some concern for a few injured players but nobody was going to miss an opportunity to represent their country and assist in a clean sweep of the tournament. It was a great start to the game for the Aussies, shooting out to an early 3-0 lead. The Kiwis kept coming and pulled back one touchdown to leave us with a 5-1 lead at half time. A solid and equal second half from both teams had the final score at 8-3. Coach Budgie  gave the boys a post match debrief, and stalwart Mick McCall informed his team mates he has played his last game  of Representative Touch (retirement should be kind). At three games to nil, it was a job well done for the Men’s 50’s, and we now prepare to celebrate the victory with the Australian function tonight.Garry Lawless – Men’s 50’s Captainlast_img read more

Health gap between rich and poor in the spotlight at UN forum

19 October 2011With the health gap between rich and poor at its widest level in recent history, the United Nations today opened a three-day forum in Brazil to tackle the social, economic and environmental root causes of health inequities. With the health gap between rich and poor at its widest level in recent history, the United Nations today opened a three-day forum in Brazil to tackle the social, economic and environmental root causes of health inequities.“The differences, within and between countries, in income levels, in opportunities, in health status, and in access to care are greater today than at any time in recent history,” UN World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan told representatives of some 120 governments, including 60 health ministers, experts, and civil society organizations in Rio de Janeiro. “A world that is greatly out of balance in matters of health is neither stable nor secure.”The conference, convened by WHO and hosted by the Brazilian Government, comes amid mounting pressure on governments to reduce social inequalities, which have further widened as a result of the global financial crisis. At present, the life expectancy gap between countries is 36 years and there is ample evidence that in all countries – whether low, middle or high-income – an individual’s health is largely determined by his socio-economic position. With the right mix of government policies and coordinated action on local, national and international levels, existing gaps could be narrowed. “Many countries are taking action to reduce socially-determined health gaps but not enough is being done.” WHO said in a news release.“In the context of the global financial crisis, increasing food insecurity, and the challenges of climate change, new strategic approaches will be needed to address the determinants of ill-health.”On Friday, at the end of the conference, governments are expected to endorse a Rio Political Declaration on Social Determinants of Health outlining their agreements and pledges to improve the broader social conditions that affect people’s health. read more

Fedup Asian companies are eyeing Irish relocation because of Brexit

first_imgFed-up Asian companies are eyeing Irish relocation because of Brexit The latest Morgan McKinley employment monitor also suggests the city brain drain is coming to a halt. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Wednesday 15 Feb 2017, 6:15 AM Feb 15th 2017, 6:15 AM 13,603 Views http://jrnl.ie/3239584 Source: Shutterstock/baranqA NEW REPORT suggests that Brexit could provide an employment boom in financial services here.The Morgan McKinley employment monitor for February, released today, has found that “large Asian-headquartered investment banks with operations in the UK, unhappy with Brexit, are conducting contingency planning and considering the talent that Ireland has to offer for their operations should they decide to relocate”.The report also finds that things are definitely looking up when it comes to parity between rural and urban jobs in Ireland. Source: Morgan McKinleyRegarding the Brexit fallout  with respect to the Asian banks, their relocation or otherwise “remains to be seen” according to Morgan McKinley’s director of inward investment Trayc Keevans.“But Ireland’s financial services talent pool is well positioned to meet their requirements if they do decide to locate here,” Keevans said.Brain drain reversed?Regarding the rural-urban divide, Keevan says “the dynamic in the IT sector between Irish headquartered companies and US multinational companies has shifted”.In the past, it was difficult for indigenous Irish SMEs to compete with larger multinational companies who could offer better salaries, conditions and access to cutting edge technology. But now we are beginning to see a more level playing field.One in two professional positions that became available in January represented opportunities in the regions as opposed to in Irish cities suggesting a balance being reached as regards the city brain drain. This has mainly been due, according to the report, to the likes of finance professionals being “willing to relocate outside Dublin”.“The overseas technology expansion and hiring plans of US companies have also slowed down as companies wait to see what restrictions if any that the new President of the United States will place on companies holding intellectual property overseas,” said Keevans.Again this has allowed Irish companies well placed to compete for available talent to reap the benefits.Vacancies Number of jobs available in Ireland, January Source: Morgan McKinleyIrish job vacancies in general saw a massive 33% increase month-on-month in January to 11,850. This is actually a 10% decrease on the number of roles available in January 2016 however.The first month of the year is generally seen to be good time to move jobs, with the ‘new year, new start’ philosophy coming to the fore.That has most certainly been the case this year, with Morgan McKinley recording a 56% increase in professionals seeking new jobs here month-on-month.Research and development engineer is the most in-demand profession at present due to further investment in innovation hubs around the country.Read: ‘Time for Dublin to grow up’ – Irish rents are now rising at their fastest rate EVERRead: What on earth is Project Black?

Black Bear PartyCrashes A Ketchikan XC Meet

first_imgA black bear was in first place for a short time during one of the races at the Region V Cross Country meet Saturday in Ketchikan. Teams from around Southeast Alaska faced off for the chance to compete in the state championship. But the event took a chaotic turn when the first race was interrupted by a bear.Download Audio:The first heat of runners to circle the course at Ward Lake was made up of girls from 1, 2 and 3A schools – those are the smaller ones, like Wrangell, Hoonah, Petersberg, Klawock.“Runners set?” an announcer says. A gunshot and cheers ring out.The fastest of these runners is Taylee Nyquest – the only girl on the Thorne Bay cross country team. I followed her coach, Sheila Nyquest, who also happens to be her mom, to the 2-mile marker.“Oh my legs are shakin’. I just get so nervous for her,” Nyquest says. “I get excited for all of them. We are at 12 minutes at the 2 miles mark. If she did three of these it would be 18 of these.”Then Taylee came into site.“Taylee you’re doin’ awesome! You’re at 12-12, just over 6 minutes. Just book it. Your pace is awesome! Go, go, go like the wind!” her mom cheers.Taylee yelled something back, which we weren’t able to make out.“There’s a black bear!”She said: ‘there’s a black bear.’ You can hear someone who was standing on the beach at another part of Ward Lake yell back to her. When I listen back to the tape of her mom and I talking, I can hear Taylee yelling: it’s in a tree! It went into the forest!ACT 4: There’s a black bear on the trail up there. Is she ok? What happened? She had to stop, there’s a black bear on the trail?Thorne Bay School principal Rob O’Neal saw everything from underneath one of the Ward Lake shelters. He even managed to get a blurry picture of the bear on his phone.“Right here, there’s some rocks and the bear’s right there. And then Taylee came through and then boom, the bear shot off. She stops…” O’Neal remembers.And then he and other coaches stopped the rest of the girls right before the two-mile mark because of the bear. They walked back to where all the teams were gathered. But once the bear cleared out, Taylee kept running. She was the only one to finish the race.“Go Taylee! Push, push, push! Go Taylee!”“I was just running and the bear was coming up from the water, and I didn’t want to keep going,” Taylee explains. “So it climbed up into the tree and I yelled back and waited and it went into the forest on the other side so I just kept going.”Taylee wasn’t as worried about the bear as she was about her time.“To be honest, what was going through my head when I had to stop was what could have my time been if I didn’t have to stop?”A committee of coaches and athletic directors decided the 1, 2, and 3A girls would re-run the race, since it was interrupted before the end. Madison James and Marissa Yliniemi from Metlakatla High School were not thrilled about that.“We were running we were in the mojo of it. Then all of a sudden they were like, there’s a bear! And it’s like, are you kidding me? I was doing good! I felt like I did not want to run again. There’s been bears [before] but they’ve never been actually on the course to the point where we had to stop the race.”Since Taylee finished the course the first time, she didn’t have to run it again.Ketchikan High School Activities Director Ed Klein said in the approximately 7 years he’s been here, there has never been a bear situation at an athletic competition. He says the cross country trails are marked, but not cleared of bears before the race.“But it might be something we’ll have to put on our list,” Klein laughs.Thorne Bay Coach Nyquest says she’s tried to prepare her five-person cross country team for encounters with wildlife.“We run on logging roads, so we’re in the wilderness quite a bit. Tell the kids to make a lot of noise. But we’ve never had an issue.”Despite the unexpected visitor, Taylee qualified for state. She was disappointed about the impact the bear had on her time – she was about a minute slower than usual – but she tried to take a positive perspective.“In practice we always say, run like there’s a bear chasing you. I was like, well perfect opportunity!”last_img read more

Without rape incest US politician in trouble over statement

first_imgWashington: Controversial United States Republican congressman Steve King set off yet another firestorm on Wednesday when he questioned whether the world’s human population would exist if rape and incest did not occur throughout history. King, a fierce conservative who is an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, was defending his opposition to abortion in all cases, including rape and incest, during an address to the Westside Conservative Club in his home state of Iowa. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in a video of his comments posted by the Des Moines Register. “Considering all the wars and all the rape and pillage that’s taken place… I know I can’t certify that I’m not part of a product of that,” he added. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us “I’d like to think that every one of the lives of us are as precious as any other life.” King is a polarising figure in Congress, with a history of making racist statements — last year he questioned why the language of white supremacy was offensive. The latest remarks triggered a bipartisan backlash. Randy Feenstra, a Republican Iowa state lawmaker who is challenging King in next year’s party primary, said the congressman is merely serving as the Democrats’ “best hope” of keeping control of the US House. Advertise With Us “Trump needs defenders in Congress, not distractions,” Feenstra said on Twitter. No fewer than 10 2020 Democratic presidential candidates lashed out at King for his remarks. “It’s time to unseat this bigot,” tweeted Julian Castro, an Obama-era housing secretary and the only Latino in the presidential race. “You are a disgrace. Resign,” Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said, also on Twitter. King’s track record has made him a pariah in Washington, where Republican leaders have stripped him of his congressional committee assignments.last_img read more

Fundraiser Helps Keep Sisters Academy of Baltimore for Girls TuitionFree

first_imgStudents and faculty members are getting ready for their upcoming fundraiser. (Photo by D’ana Downing)Ask Sister Debra Liesen, principal of the Sisters Academy of Baltimore, what it’s like to be in charge of a school full of teens and pre-teens and she begins to laugh.“Drama!” she said. “We call them our drama mamas.”The school is preparing for their biggest fundraiser yet. The cowboy-themed Downtown Hoedown will be held April 25 at Montgomery Park in Baltimore. The event will feature food, a live band, line dance instruction, and even a trick roper. Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin will receive an award.The event, two years in the making, is important for the school. School administrators say that since they don’t charge students tuition, they depend on events like the Hoedown to keep the school’s doors open.Sisters Academy has been educating low-income Baltimore girls since 2004. It is the only all-girls tuition-free middle school in Baltimore. Most of their students come from southwest and west Baltimore. The school is the result of the combined efforts of four Catholic organizations – The School Sisters of Notre Dame, Sisters of Bon Secours, Sisters of Mercy and Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.Liesen said the middle school years are precarious ones, especially for young women. “It’s very exciting for them, but it’s also very scary.”She said that to tackle this problem, administrators try to be firm but fair, helping the girls navigate both academics and personal issues. “They come in as fifth graders. They are so young,” she said. “You see them evolve over time.”“The goal is to provide a top-quality private school faith-based education for families that couldn’t afford it otherwise,” said school president Sister Delia Dowling.She said in order to keep classes small, they accept about 20 girls a year. The girls start at fifth grade and leave after the eighth. Downing said staff members and administration work hard to make sure that the girls have the well-rounded education they need to be successful in high school and later on in college.So far, seven classes of girls have graduated from the Academy. Four of those classes are in high school right now and three are in college. Downing said 85 percent of the girls in the first three classes are in college. Frostburg University, The College of Notre Dame in Maryland, and St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia are some of the places now educating Sisters Academy alumnus.To ensure the girls do well, the school has an employee who tracks each girl through high school and periodically checks up on them. “They have come so far here that we want to be sure that they are successful,” Downing said.last_img read more

Costa Rican police arrest two suspected members of Mexicos Los Caballeros Templarios

first_imgNo related posts. Costa Rican authorities on Friday arrested two suspected members of the Mexican drug cartel “Los Caballeros Templarios” (Knights Templar), who are suspected of killing a Guatemalan man and a Costa Rican model last November in an alleged murder of retribution, officials said.Following a six-month investigation, the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) arrested two Mexican brothers with the last names Alvarado Carrillo, who allegedly are directly linked to the cartel, along with four Costa Ricans.“Today we moved forward with the arrest of members of the group, as we had information that the Mexican men and leaders of this organization were in Costa Rica,” interim OIJ Assistant Director Gustavo Mata told TV’s Channel 7.The arrests were coordinated with eight police raids in four locations across the country, in which 80 kilograms of cocaine, several firearms and luxury vehicles were seized.“Apparently the homicide was payback for the Guatemalan man, and the young model with him was likely at the wrong place and the wrong time, for which she too was killed,” Mata said.Authorities identified the victims as Sigifredo Fernández, 52, from Guatemala, and Pamela Céspedes, 29. They were killed on Nov. 8, 2012, when the vehicle they were traveling in was fired upon while driving on the San José-Caldera Highway, west of the capital.Los Caballeros Templarios is a violent drug cartel that also participates in other extremely violent criminal operations including kidnapping, extortion and robbery, on Mexico’s Pacific coast.Mexican drug cartels have increased their presence throughout Central America, which serves as a bridge for 90 percent of the cocaine that is trafficked to the United States from South America, according to the United Nations.

Prosecutor Germanwings copilot feared going blind

first_imgInvestigators were going over Lubitz’s remains to determine whether he had taken any medications the day of the flight.Germanwings and parent company Lufthansa have said that Lubitz had passed all medical tests and was cleared by doctors as fit to fly. Robin said he had no evidence that the carrier knew of the co-pilot’s alleged visual ailment.In Germany, doctors risk prison if they disclose information about their patients to anyone unless there is evidence they intend to commit a serious crime or harm themselves. Lubitz had told his doctors not to share information among each other about his condition, Robin said.Four days after the crash, German prosecutors said there was no evidence that Lubitz had any physical ailment affecting his sight. Robin said Lubitz had complained of seeing flashing lights but that there was no apparent “organic” reason for Lubitz’s apparent vision troubles.Families of the victims were focusing on the return of the remains and belongings of their loved ones, and possible redress. German lawyer Peter Kortas, whose firm represents relatives of 34 victims, said negotiations with Germanwings on compensation began several days ago. Robin said that Lubitz sent an email to one doctor just two weeks before the crash, saying he had doubled his dose of an antidepressant he was taking in a failed attempt to end near-sleepless nights as a result of worries about his vision. Robin said it wasn’t yet clear if the vision woes were real or imagined, but Lubitz clearly felt it was threatening his beloved career.“He even said to some of those close to him that given this vision loss, life no longer had meaning,” Robin said. Lubitz’s girlfriend appeared to be aware of his vision woes, and his family to a lesser extent: Both she and his mother took him to some of his medical appointments, he added.Robin’s comments also exposed the long-term nature of Lubitz’s troubles. He feared his vision troubles would spark a return of his depression that he once suffered, the prosecutor said.In the last five years, Robin said Lubitz consulted with 41 different doctors.In a March 10 e-mail to a doctor, Lubitz had indicated he could only sleep two hours a night and wanted urgent help, Robin said. Lubitz specified he was taking Mirtazapine, an antidepressant, and had even doubled the dosage from 15 to 30 milligrams in a failed bid to improve his sleep, and his fear of going blind continued, the prosecutor added.

How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation “In this moment everything else is not as important as the fact that the bodies, (the) remains be returned to their families,” Kortas said. “It’s already more than two and a half months since the crash happened, so it’s finally necessary to get to closure.“The loss of the relatives should be compensated with also a suitable amount of money,” he added.While Kortas said Thursday’s meeting with the prosecutors was “informative and interesting,” he regretted that some questions remained. Relatives were told what the procedure was for returning remains and personal belongings, but not all got an exact date for the handover of remains, and no timeframe was given for the return of the personal belongings.Nearly half of the victims were German, 47 were Spanish and there were 17 nationalities among the rest.Stephane Gicquel, who heads a French accident victims association and was at the families’ meeting with Robin, said the relatives saw video reconstitutions of the last minute of the flight, with cockpit audio taken from the Airbus 320.“So very concretely, the families had the proof of what happened by hearing the sound recordings, hearing the alarms, hearing the bangs on the door,” he said. “I think that the families appreciated this frank and direct communication.” PARIS (AP) — Fearing he was going blind, the co-pilot who slammed a Germanwings jet into the Alps took sick days at work, upped his dosage of an antidepressant, and reached out to doctors, but they didn’t tell his employer they thought he was unfit to fly because of German privacy laws, a French prosecutor said Thursday.Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin presented new details of his criminal investigation into the case after meeting in Paris with many grieving relatives of the 150 people who died on the Germanwings flight co-piloted by Andreas Lubitz. The March 24 crash, blamed on Lubitz, has put a spotlight on possible mental health issues involving flight crews.Robin announced he was handing over his initial inquiry to three investigating magistrates who will try to determine who — if anyone — can be brought to trial in an involuntary manslaughter case in which the main culprit died in the crash.The news came as families have just started to receive the remains of their loved ones for burials in the coming days and weeks.The investigation so far “has enabled us to confirm without a shadow of a doubt … Mr. Andreas Lubitz deliberately destroyed the plane and deliberately killed 150 people, including himself,” Robin told reporters.Investigators say Lubitz locked the pilot out of the cockpit and flew the plane into a French mountainside after having researched suicide methods and cockpit door rules and practiced an unusual descent.In a new development, Robin said information from Lubitz’s tablet PC showed he had also investigated vision problems, and “feared going blind,” which would have ended the 27-year-old’s aviation career.Lubitz, who had a history of depression, had seven medical appointments in the month before the crash, including three with a psychiatrist, and had taken eight sick days off work, Robin said. Some of the doctors felt Lubitz was psychologically unstable, and some felt he was unfit to fly, but “unfortunately that information was not reported because of medical secrecy requirements,” the prosecutor said.

In that case, more frequent releases are necessary over the season.Numerous pests are successfully controlled within fields growing a wide variety of crops around the world. Crop examples include permanent crops such as vineyards, citrus and apple orchards as well as annual crops such as strawberry, cannabis, and corn. Controlled pests include whiteflies, thrips, aphids, and mites by using either predators or parasitoids depending on the target. One common example in California is controlling the populations of two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) in strawberry crops by releasing a beneficial predator mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis. This mite is released three to four times per crop to establish a sufficient population, which, once established, can control twospotted spider mites for the rest of the crop cycle – roughly six months. Another famous augmentative biological control use case is the release of the parasitoid wasp “Anagyrus pseudococci” by the growers in the Coachella and San Joaquin Valleys in California as part of their IPM programs to control the vine mealybugs.If you are wondering about how to start using these control agents, rest assured you will not have to rear the insects yourself. Several companies specialize in the mass production of beneficials, from home breeders to multinational corporations, such as Koppert or BioBee. Your PCA or a local entomologist should be able to recommend one! THE EVOLUTION OF CONTROL AGENTS RELEASE METHODSMost of augmentative biocontrol application techniques require field workers to manually release the beneficials directly on the crop or soil. This can be a time-consuming process, and meeting required application timing can be tricky for larger fields. Luckily, if pest populations are anticipated to grow but are not yet sufficient to sustain a larger beneficial population, some beneficials can be released into fields a bit early by using containers or bags that provide some nourishment. Hopefully, this lasts until they can live off pest populations, but some level of loss should be anticipated.  As you may be beginning to realize, while biocontrol has tremendous benefit, the traditional techniques face a few challenges: field/terrain conditions or crop height may prevent a manual release, there is a big opportunity cost for not using limited labor for other tasks, there is commonly a lack of precision in the release of the beneficials, and timing can be critical. However, there is good news to report. New dispersion techniques have been developed, tested and now are becoming increasingly available. Some, like hand-held blowers, are an incremental improvement of current manual releases. Others, such as the drone-performed biocontrol provided by our company UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture to growers in California, make the release of beneficials possible at scale for a growing number of crop types. In an upcoming article, we will describe in more detail the different release methods for augmentative biocontrol. We will discover that while augmentative biological control was historically known mainly for greenhouse vegetable and floriculture production, these new technics open new opportunities for outdoor crops such as trees, orchards, vineyards, etc.In our next article, we will focus on the last strategy of applied biological control discussed in this series: conservation biocontrol, but before then we’d love to hear from you about whether you’re finding these informative and if you have any suggestions for future articles. Do you have any experience with augmentative biological control? Share your story with us and fellow growers in the comments!UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture is a company that leverages precision agriculture technologies and best practices to help growers address labor shortages and make farming operations more profitable and sustainable. By Thomas Grandperrin of UAV-IQ Precision AgricultureThis article is part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ.In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article. To highlight a few of the most common causes though, industrial farming techniques such as monocropping and the use of phytosanitary products can affect populations of beneficial insects.AUGMENTATIVE BIOLOGICAL CONTROL IN ACTIONWhen existing natural enemies populations dip, growers who implement biocontrol as part of their Integrated Pest Management plan can re-release beneficials on a regular basis instead of using pesticides. This technique of bolstering existing beneficial populations with mass-reared insects is referred to as augmentative biocontrol and presents many advantages compared to the use of chemical application. For example, unlike the use of broad-spectrum pesticides that can affect the natural enemies population and thus could encourage future pest outbreaks, augmentative biocontrol is  often an ideal long-term solution. Additionally, growers are facing pesticide resistance issues which force them to look for alternative pest control strategies. The release of biological control agents is often a more sustainable solution in the short and long-term. Another argument (among many more) in favor of augmentative biocontrol is that sprayed chemicals often cannot reach some pests such as spider mites which tend to stay sheltered on the bottom side of leaves, but natural enemies have no problem finding them there.As we described in previous articles, the goal of biocontrol is not to eradicate a pest from the farm, but rather to ensure that there is the right balance of natural enemies and pests, so that the pest population is kept under acceptable thresholds. The two primary thresholds to consider are the least number of insects that cause yield loss equal to pest management costs (economic injury level, or “EIL”) or, preferably, the pest density at which action should be taken to prevent populations from reaching the economic injury level (economic threshold, or “ET”). WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INOCULATIVE AND INUNDATIVE AUGMENTATION? The primary principle of augmentative biocontrol is to use periodic releases to ensure that there is a large enough population of natural enemies (the ET) to prevent or control major pest outbreaks (the EIL). Augmentation can be further segmented into inoculation and inundation, depending on the frequency of release.Inoculative augmentation is when a release of beneficial is made on the crops once during the season and the control is ensured for the rest of the season by their offsprings.last_img read more

Ten days on air traffic staff still have gaping hole in ceiling

first_imgTHE air traffic control centre in Nicosia, where part of the ceiling collapsed on June 13 remains unrepaired, the Pancyprian public sector union (Pasydy) said on Saturday.‘No progress has been made since June 13,” the statement said.An air traffic controller was slightly injured in the incident, which sparked a torrent of criticism from employees and unions.“The only thing that prevented him sustaining only a concussion and not something more serious was just pure luck,” the Pasydy statement said.Pasydy said on Saturday that as of June 13, the employees have been working under scaffolding but nothing has been done to fix the actual ceiling. Now they say they’re worried the floor will collapse under them from the weight of the equipment and scaffolding if the ceiling underneath is as damaged as theirs was to the point where it fell in on its own.“We go to work every day and do not know if we will be able to return home to our families,” the union said in a written statement on behalf of the employees.According to the union, the state budget includes funds of €323,000 for the maintenance and repair of buildings and another €200,000 for building and office maintenance, and that at the same time they have a new building in Kokkinotrimithia, which is not being used and instead the taxpayer is paying rent for an old run-down building in the Athalassas area.“We also consider it wrong to choose the same contractor to repair the damage since he was the one who last October supposedly refurbished the now-collapsed roof,” the Pasydy statement added.The union said that the state needs to move forward with the repairs and not waste more time.On Wednesday, two international bodies representing air traffic controllers said the ceiling collapse was the result of years of mismanagement and underinvestment.Air Traffic Controllers European Unions Coordination (ATCEUC) and the  International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFACTA) in an announcement expressed their sympathy with the employees of the department of civil aviation (DCA) and the effects that this accident has on their working environment.“This will increase pressure on the workforce, reduce morale and will create further delay and safety concerns in the area,” the announcement said, adding that the two organisations had criticised the working conditions in Cyprus for more than 10 years. You May LikeMarie Claire | Hanacure4 Stars Who Tried The “Benjamin Button” Facial All Over Your Social FeedsMarie Claire | HanacureUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDirectExposeMan Purchases 42 School Buses For $300 And Buries Them UndergroundDirectExposeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoBishop says homosexuality passed on to the unborn when pregnant women enjoy anal sexUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
