first_imgRashan Gary crushes Hayden Moore.Michigan star defensive end Rashan Gary has not played in a few weeks. The mysterious nature of his shoulder injury has led to a slew of rumors that the junior standout was planning on sitting out the rest of the season to preserve his draft status.Well, Gary’s mother Jennifer Coney-Shepherd must have been getting tired of the questions surrounding her son. She chose to address his situation on Facebook earlier today.According to Jennifer, Rashan injured his shoulder in the buildup to the Notre Dame game on Sept. 1. He elected to play through the pain but re-aggravated the issue during the Wolverines’ game against Northwestern on Oct. 6.He has not played since then. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has confirmed Gary is dealing with an AC joint injury but has been mum about a possible return.Jennifer Coney-Shepherd provided plenty of detail in her message, which you can read below:“Rashan & (sic) I appreciate your support. He got hurt a week b4 the Notre Dame game. However, he decided that he could play through it & rehab during the week. However, at UM its all or nothing and daily practice is just like a game..so he never had the chance to rest..then the last game he played he fell on it and the pain was unbearable. After MRI & CT Scan he was told that if he DID NOT rest, treatment, rehab and continued to play (4 to 6 weeks). The next time he may need surgery. So…he followed medical direction, and he’s feeling so much better. To play before that time would be detrimental to himself & a disservice to his team mates. So why would people say he’s quitting football because he has to heal?My son is and always will be a warrior. My son is a Wolverine! He has pride in himself, his team & his academics & until Michigan plays their last game he will be a part of the team. He will however, not participant until he is fully recovered…Now that you know…there’s no need for rumor or speculation.”Rashan Gary’s mom: pic.twitter.com/dUMybzJwQH— Brooks (@GoBlueBrooks) October 24, 2018This season, Gary has recorded 18 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. He is a projected first round pick in next April’s NFL Draft.Even without Gary, the Michigan defense is thriving. The Wolverines have not allowed more than 24 points in a game once this season, and that was in the first game against ND.Michigan will have a bye this weekend before playing Penn State on Nov. 3.last_img read more

Indo-Asian News Service KolkataOctober 17, 2019UPDATED: October 17, 2019 08:55 IST PM Narendra Modi with his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina recently met in Hyderabad earlier this month (PTI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSCricket Association of Bengal has invited both Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Sheikh HasinaBangladesh will tour India for a series of 3 T20Is and 2 Tests from November 3The 2nd Test in Kolkata will be played from November 22If all goes as per plan, the Kolkata Test between India and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens could see the Prime Ministers of the two countries in attendance. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina have been invited for the Test which will be played from November 22 to 26.Sources in the know of developments have told IANS that invites have been sent by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to both the Prime Ministers to grace the historic occasion when Bangladesh play their first Test at the historic ground in the City of Joy. A confirmation is expected to come in soon.The association is known to take cricket celebration to the next level and even while hosting the India-Pakistan encounter in the 2016 World T20, it was Amitabh Bachchan who was invited to be a part of the monumental occasion as also sing the Indian national anthem. In fact, former Pakistan captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan was also in attendance for the game.And now with the then CAB President Sourav Ganguly taking over the control of the BCCI — for the next 10 months — there could be more surprises in store for the cricket crazy people of the city.Interestingly, the last time a cricket match saw such a high-profile presence was the semi-final of the 2011 World Cup in Mohali when India played Pakistan and the game was closely watched by then India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistan counterpart Yousaf Raza Gilani among other delegates from both the countries.advertisementThe second Test of the two-Test series will also be the time when the Jagmohan Dalmiya Memorial Lecture will be held and it will be in all likelihood Ganguly who will be the speaker on the occasion. This apart, the state-of-the-art indoor training facility that is being constructed at the Eden Gardens is also expected to be inaugurated during the second Test between India and Bangladesh.Also Read | Will speak to selectors about Dhoni on October 24: Sourav GangulyAlso Read | Ganguly responds to Harbhajan’s congratulatory message: It is unmissableFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgNova Scotia’s film, television and new media industry continues to draw top name stars to the region and accolades for local productions — contributing more than $100 million to provincial coffers last year as a result. The Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation said today, May 19, that $67.8 million was invested by local productions in the 2004-05 fiscal year and $35.7 million resulted from productions based outside the region. “With a new industry strategy in place, enhancements to the film industry tax credit, and increases in the equity programs of the film corporation, Nova Scotia’s film industry is poised for yet more positive growth in the next few years,” said Ernest Fage, Minister responsible for the Film Development Corporation. “We look forward to the film industry’s continuing contribution to the provincial economy as well as to the national and international cultural landscape.” Local producers continue to put Nova Scotia on the entertainment industry map by creating award-winning, audience-generating programs and films. In 2004 there were 39 locally produced projects including the prequel to the film Trudeau, the fifth season of the Trailer Park Boys, and many variety, lifestyle, and documentary programs. One of the feature films shot this past year, Whole New Thing, was pre-selected for the Cannes International Film Festival. Guest production brought Hollywood stars like Tom Selleck, Kathy Bates, Christina Applegate, and Mariska Hargitay to the province. Nova Scotia hosted six movies for television, including The Riverman, Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas, Plain Truth, Ambulance Girl, Stone Cold, and Just a Baby. In addition, segments for two television series were filmed in Nova Scotia — the animated series Bromwell High and the popular Life Network series, Taking It Off. In the past year, local producers brought 18 brass statuettes home from the 19th annual Gemini Awards, the result of an outstanding 40 nominations for Nova Scotia filmmakers. “Nova Scotia’s film industry has had another exceptional year,” said Bonnie Kirby, chair of the film development corporation’s board of directors. “Our homegrown productions continue to find audiences nationally and internationally, while Nova Scotia’s reputation as an outstanding film location grows each year.” The industry and the film corporation released a strategy paper early in 2004 that will guide the growth of the film industry for the next five years. The document, called Nova Scotia Film, Television, and New Media Industry: Impact Analysis and Long-Term Strategy, has been embraced by all in the industry as an important step toward continued success. On March 8, Premier John Hamm announced that the government is increasing both the Nova Scotia film industry tax credit and the film corporation’s equity funds. The tax credit helps local film companies bring valuable resources to the table to generate new business opportunities, and it positions the province as an attractive location for foreign film productions. The equity program provides key trigger funds for local film and television projects and helps Nova Scotia producers leverage funds from other sources. “We have already seen benefits from both,” said Ann MacKenzie, chief executive officer of the film development corporation. “We have seen an unprecedented sense of partnership among industry stakeholders around strategy initiatives. We have seen an increase in new business development leads as a result of the tax credit enhancements and with the increased equity funds, we have already seen local producers secure financing for 14 productions that will be filmed this year.” The Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation is a provincial Crown corporation reporting to the Minister of Economic Development. The corporation provides a wide range of programs and services to build the capacity and competitiveness of the province’s film, television and new media industries.last_img read more

first_imgChelsea Clinton needs your help in making full participation a reality for women and girls around the world.“Last week on International Women’s Day, my mother and I joined thousands of people and partners around the world in removing images of women from the media – books, magazines, billboards, and even our own social channels – to make a bold and important statement: we’re “not there” yet when it comes to gender equality, and that’s just not good enough,” she wrote in an email to supporters of the Clinton Foundation. “The next day, my mother, Melinda Gates, and I joined some of the world’s leading advocates for women’s equality to celebrate the exciting release of the No Ceilings Full Participation Report and NoCeilings.org – an incredible analysis of global data and stories from the last 20 years, highlighting where we’ve made strides and where we’re still “not there” on the road to full participation. Together these leaders told stories of progress, challenges, and hope that gave life to our data and showed us all that while we still have a long way to go, we can all play a part in getting there.“Whether it’s taking a pledge to stand up against gender-based violence, donating an old cellphone to help reduce maternal mortality, or supporting women-owned businesses in your community – you can do something today to help build on progress and close the gaps that remain for women and girls in every corner of the globe.“That’s why, for the month of March, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project is sharing #NotThereAction, a series of small but powerful daily actions – available on Twitter via @ClintonFdn and at NoCeilings.org – that you can take and share to help raise awareness, make a difference, and inspire change right now.“I hope you will take some time to learn how you can help make full participation a reality for women and girls in your community and around the world.“We’re not there yet, but together, we can be.”last_img read more

Repeating similar recommendations issued to governments last year, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said all Iraqi asylum seekers should continue to be granted some form of temporary protection.Drawing attention to the generalized climate of instability and insecurity, the agency notes that security incidents, which “continue with alarming frequency,” are increasingly targeted at Iraqis perceived to be supporting or collaborating with the United States-led Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA).Such targets include policemen, religious and community leaders, national staff working for foreign organizations, as well Kurdish administrators in Northern Iraq. UNHCR also noted the potential for increased violence, given the persistence of extremist elements and tensions among Iraq’s various ethnic and religious groups.Compounding the security situation is a severe lack of housing, irregular provision of basic services, the absence of an effective judicial system or financial institutions, and an unemployment rate running as high as 70 per cent, the agency added.Iraq’s Minister of Displacement and Migration, Mohammed J. Khodair, has specifically requested that UNHCR urge host countries not to encourage or force refugees to return to Iraq until the situation has improved.Even though some voluntary repatriation has taken place, mainly to southern Iraq from Iran and from Rafha Camp in Saudi Arabia, UNHCR stressed that it was not promoting voluntary returns yet.”We are, however, continuing to facilitate – as far as we are able under present circumstances – the return of individuals who express a clear wish to repatriate,” spokesman Kris Janowski told a briefing in Geneva. read more

“Yaws is an infection caused by a bacteria that is transmitted by direct contact,” Dr. Mitjà told the UN News Centre yesterday in an interview at the UN Headquarters in New York.Transmitted by skin contact, the disease affects mostly children between the ages of five and 15, and appears as multiple lesions which eat away at faces, arms and hands, and deepen to the bones, disfiguring the child. Yaws is part of a family of disabling disease that affect the skin – along with leprosy – preventing children from attending school and placing an undue economic burden on local communities. Incidents of the disease were 95 per cent decreased by 1970, but tens of thousands of people in 13 tropical countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Central America continue to battle with the disease today.“Yaws is a neglected tropical disease,” said Dr. Mitjà. “It affects the communities in rural and remote areas, which do not have access to media and to policy decision-making people. So no one cares about them.” These people live “where the roads end” and where extreme poverty begins, and with it overcrowding, a lack of sanitation and few opportunities for medical services.This unsettling phrase is also the name of a new documentary film by director Noemí Cuní and her crew, which highlights Dr. Mitjà’s crusade to eradicate Yaws.“What really moved us to do the documentary was the strength of the doctor. His conviction with his mission of helping all people in the world, and his iron will in fighting and researching until he found this cure that affects mainly children,” Ms. Cuní said ahead of a screening of the film. The cure, as it turned out, was medically simple – one tablet of an inexpensive antibiotic, Azithromycin. The cost to provide these tablets to 40 million people who need them is about $300 million. Raising this amount is part of a WHO campaign to eradicate Yaws by 2020. If successful, it will only be the second human disease eradicated in history, after small pox.“Many people are going to discover this disease and I think the documentary can move them to help and try to raise the funding,” said Ms. Cuní. Mr. Mitjà was only 29 years old when he arrived in Lihir Island, and he had never seen Yaws before. “Changing something at the local level is changing the world,” Mr. Mitjà said in the trailer to the film. “Our experience at the local level can be extrapolated to other areas. It can have an international impact. The effort of my team, my efforts, can make a difference.” read more

first_imgIn March 2011, Caterpillar’s Indonesian dealer, PT Trakindo Utama, completed the 300th rebuild for PT Freeport Indonesia (PTFI) at its Kuala Kencana Machine Rebuilt Center. The R1700G LHD is the 300th machine rebuild that was completed since the facility was moved from Ridge Camp to Kuala Kencana in 2002, and is also the 105th underground machine rebuilt to date.“The loader arrived at our facility with 12,253 hours of recorded operation. The machine was then cleaned and disassembled, with all components sent to the Component Rebuild Center, which then rebuilt all the major components within 23 days. The machine re-assembly process took 12 days and then continued with testing and adjustment in the workshop prior to testing in the levee area. After testing it was then cleaned and painted,”  explained Trakindo technician Heryanto Lote.The next part of the process was to carry out the pre-delivery inspection and service. Upon final completion and quality control inspection, the unit was then declared ready for return to operation. “The 300th machine rebuild was completed in 54 days with four Machine Rebuilt Center mechanics working double shifts,” added Heryanto.“The ability to rebuild this machine is an approximate 35% cost saving to the PTFI operation, proving that machine rebuilds, whether for a first, second, or in some cases even a third time, are a viable and effective method of meeting operational targets without the need to replace with new equipment,” stated Trakindo Manager Peter Jones, who also said that the 350th rebuild is scheduled to be completed in November 2011.PT Trakindo Utama Rebuild Center at Kuala Kencana Light Industrial Park (LIP) supports PTFI operations by providing parts and maintenance services for Caterpillar heavy equipment and components, as well as equipment rebuilds.The Rebuild Center is comprised of the Component Rebuild Center and Machine Rebuild Center, which cater to support full machine rebuilds and repairs of various Caterpillar earthmoving equipment and components from underground to surface mining units.last_img read more

first_img Source: Richard WoffendenA MAN WHO killed a young mother and seriously injured her 15-week-old child when he hit them with his car while in “a micro-sleep” has had the balance of a two year jail term suspended on appeal.Dublin man Anthony Handley (64), of Whitethorn Grove, Artane, had pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to dangerous driving causing the death of Olivia Dunne (31) and serious bodily harm to Éabha Dunne in Balbriggan on 17 January 2014.Gardaí believe Handley drifted off momentarily before his off-road SUV veered from the road and hit the two victims. He had no alcohol or drugs in his system.Sentencing Handley to two years imprisonment on 10 May 2016, Judge Patrick McCartan said he was a good man with a blameless record but he should have been alert to the fact that he was becoming tired behind the wheel.Judge McCartan said he was imposing the two year sentence “to send out the clear message to the community that fatigue must be a phenomenon in the minds of all drivers”.He also banned Handley from driving for ten years.Errors in sentencingThe Court of Appeal found a number of error’s in the sentencing of Handley today. He was given a new two year jail term but had the balance suspended on conditions. His driving ban was unchanged.Giving judgement in the three-judge court, Mr Justice Alan Mahon said Handley, who had had only four hours sleep overnight, was driving towards Balbriggan shortly after midday on the day in question when he lost control of his car and swerved across the road striking a young mother wheeling her child in a buggy.Eyewitnesses said Handley’s car swerved suddenly across the road without braking.Handley was unable to explain why the accident occurred. It was initially suspected that he suffered a mini-stroke and this possibility was the subject of intense medical scrutiny.Ultimately, the medical evidence suggested otherwise and the only other rational explanation was that Handley had fallen asleep. This likely cause prompted him to plead guilty.Ms Dunne was killed instantly and her infant daughter was significantly injured. Such were Éabha’s injuries she wasn’t expected to survive but she “defied the odds”, according to the court’s judgement.Sadly, she will grow up never having known her mother, Justice Mahon said.Olivia Dunne’s sister, Caroline Clinton, described how her sister was a proud and content new mother, wife and teacher, whose life was “complete”. All this came to a sudden tragic end on the day in question.TraumatisedCiarán Dunne lost his young wife, has been left severely traumatised, has not returned to work and cannot travel past the scene of the accident.Handley was a father-of-three and a grandfather. He worked his entire adult life and had no previous convictions. Although separated from his wife for ten years, he moved back into the marital home to be her primary carer. She has a serious illness.The court was anxious to emphasise that by any standard this accident was a dreadful tragedy with the most appalling consequences for the family of Olivia Dunne and her young daughter Éabha.Mr Justice Mahon said the sentencing judge “unfairly penalised” Handley for the delay in pleading guilty, “erroneously attributed” to Handley a motivation to explore ‘the depth of a technical or other defence’, deemed his efforts to investigate the medical cause for the accident as in someway diminishing of his remorse and attached insufficient weight to the mitigating factors particularly his role as main carer for his estranged wife.Finally, Justice Mahon said the net custodial sentence of two years was “unduly harsh”.Justice Mahon said the possibility or suspicion that there was a medical cause for Handley’s loss of consciousness clearly exercised the minds of his doctors from day one.A consultant in emergency medicine expressed the view that Handley may have had a seizure or cardiac arrhythmia.Ultimately, albeit belatedly Handley accepted that he must have fallen asleep and in pleading guilty he accepted legal responsibility for having done so.He had had, for him, a normal night’s rest, had been to the gym, was engaged in relatively short urban journeys and was not particularly aware of feeling tired.He had gotten up at 5am that morning, had breakfast and went to the gym before dropping his daughter to a nearby location.These were routine tasks for him and would not normally be expected to result in driver fatigue, Justice Mahon said.Mahon, who sat with Mr Justice George Birmingham and Mr Justice John Edwards, said the court would allow the appeal.Handley was resentenced to two years imprisonment but any unserved portion was suspended.He was required to enter into a good behaviour bond and he undertook to be so bound. Handley then left the Criminal Courts of Justice building.Read: High Court overturns €40,000 damages payout to woman who fell on Wicklow WayRead: High-tech hotel backed by Denis O’Brien to open in Dublin next July http://jrnl.ie/3245317 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Friday 17 Feb 2017, 3:00 PM 17,402 Views 41 Comments Share Tweet Email Short URL Driver who killed mother and injured infant in “micro-sleep” has sentence suspended on appeal 64-year-old Anthony Handley had pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to causing the death of a 31-year-old to her daughter in January 2014.

first_imgWhen the PS4 released, one of the many advantages it had over the Xbox One — a focus on games, cheaper but more powerful hardware, good press from E3, embracing indie developers — was that it released with the ability to stream games via Twitch straight from the console. If comparing non-gaming features, it’s fair to say that while the Xbox One was focused on TV integration, the PS4 was focused more on a social media experience. Microsoft always said the Xbox One was getting Twitch, though, but for whatever reason, it was continually delayed since launch. Now, with the release of Titanfall — the first flagship game of this generation — Xbox One games will finally get to stream their play sessions over Twitch on March 11.Whether or not it’s used for good or evil, the internet is nothing if not a hotbed for creativity. Soon after the PS4 released, intrepid gamers figured out a way to use the PlayStation Camera to stream a live feed from their living rooms. The most notable instance of this was a live call-in talk show hosted through the app, which received a call from Sony PR man Adam Boyes. For better or worse, the Xbox One is saddled with a Kinect, so these live shows could pop up on Microsoft’s box as well. However, if that’s the case, then other types of live shows will likely pop up as well.The Xbox One Twitch app will also sport some features that the PS4 app does not, such as the implementation of voice controls thanks to the Kinect, and the ability to archive streams.With the recent release and subsequent sell-out of the PS4 in Japan, Sony likely isn’t too worried about Titanfall or the Xbox One finally catching up to the Twitchosphere. However, with the soon-to-be released $500 Xbox One Titanfall bundle (where, basically, Titanfall is free) and Xbox One streams popping up on the internet soon enough, Microsoft should at least make up some ground.last_img read more

I say it today, and I’ll continue to say it, looking you straight in the eye.”President Luis Guillermo Solís released a video Tuesday evening about the unfolding Chinese cement scandal in which he reiterated that while he supported changes in public policy to end the country’s duopoly on cement in order to reduce prices for consumers, he was not party to any of the alleged wrongdoing that took place when the policy changes were put into practice.“Because of my duties as President, I didn’t participate in and was not aware of the details of that implementation. It was one of many other issues on my agenda,” he said in the video message.The scandal, popularly known as the “cementazo,” has implicated members of all three branches of government – as well as board members and managerial staff of one of the country’s public banks – who allegedly misused their positions to improperly promote the Chinese cement import business of Juan Carlos Bolaños.Bolaños and six Banco de Costa Rica staff members were arrested Friday and ordered to serve three months of preventive detention while the investigation continues.Read more about how the scandal began, its potential impact on Costa Ricans’ trust in their government, and what it means for the Judicial Branch. last_img read more
