Trippier admitted that the last year has been crazy for him

first_imgKieran Trippier made his international debut less than one year ago – and now, he is about to be included in England’s starting eleven in the upcoming World Cup in Russia.The Tottenham Hotspur full-back admitted that the last year has been a bit crazy for him as he was called up to the national team for the first time and now, he is about to be given a chance to play in the World Cup.Trippier spoke about his current feelings as he said, according to tottenhamhotspur.com:Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R.

Bill seeks to insure families of deceased law enforcement and firefighters

first_imgWhen law enforcement officers and firefighters die in the line of duty, their survivors may be left without health insurance. Three families of state troopers who died in the past three years have been covered under orders issued by Governors Sean Parnell and Bill Walker. But a future administration could change this. The families are looking for a permanent solution that will cover themselves and other survivors in the future.  But there’s a debate over how that should happen.Download AudioPolice car in Juneau(Photo by: Mikko Wilson / KTOO)When Nikki Toll’s husband, Alaska State Trooper Tage Toll, died in a helicopter crash in 2013, she quickly found out that health coverage for herself and their three sons  was ending.“His body hadn’t even been positively identified yet and we were without insurance,” Toll said.She was able to purchase coverage through the Public Employee Retirement System.  But — due to paperwork problems with her husband’s death certificate, she paid extra. She only received relief a year later. That’s when the shooting deaths of Trooper Sergeant Patrick “Scott” Johnson and Trooper Gabe Rich led then-Governor Sean Parnell to order that the survivors’ families receive health benefits.Anchorage Republican Representative Charisse Millett introduced House Bill 66 to permanently provide these benefits to survivors.But the bill stalled after it was referred to the House Labor and Commerce Committee.Committee Chairman Republican Kurt Olson of Soldotna says the proposal needs to be considered more.He says it’s not clear whether the federal law that regulates state-provided insurance allows for survivors to be covered. He also questions whether it’s legally appropriate to cover some survivors of public workers and not others. He noted that workers with duties other than public safety die while performing their duties.Olson also says it may be more appropriate for troopers’ families to be covered through labor contracts, rather than changes in state law.“If each of the bargaining units are looking for something like that, it should be something that will be negotiated,” Olson said. “And there are other ways that it could be addressed. For example, life insurance or annuities.”Majority Leader Millett tried to insert the legislation as an amendment to  the widelast_img read more

Chandrayaan launch called off due to snag

Chandrayaan launch called off due to snag

first_imgSriharikota: With the countdown clock freezing minutes before 2 am, the launch of Chandrayaan-2, India’s second mission to moon, was called off 56 minutes before the scheduled time early Monday morning. The GSLV Mark III carrying the orbiter, lander, and rover was to take off at 2:51 am from Sriharikota, the country’s only launch site. The launch was aborted as an “abundant precaution” after a technical snag was noticed in the launch vehicle systems after filling liquid hydrogen in the cryogenic upper stage of the rocket. “A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system at 1 hour before the launch. As a measure of abundant precaution, #Chandrayaan2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later,” a statement from the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) said.last_img read more

Mamatas development work to be poll plank of Dulal Das for Maheshtala

Mamatas development work to be poll plank of Dulal Das for Maheshtala

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress candidate Dulal Das is banking on the all-round development work of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, as he hopes to win the Maheshtala by-election scheduled to be held on Monday.The Maheshtala Assembly seat in South 24-Parganas district fell vacant after the death of its two-time representative Kasturi Das of Trinamool in February this year. Das has been pitched against a Congress-Left Alliance and BJP that has emerged as a distant second in the recently concluded Panchayat elections. The CPI(M)-Congress alliance had fielded Pravash Chowdhury while BJP’s candidate is Sujit Ghosh. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”The Panchayat election results have shown clearly that people of the state are with the development of Mamata Banerjee. Maheshtala is also not an exception. In the last few years, a development wave has swept here. I have been campaigning, highlighting the development work that has taken place and will follow in the next few years,” Das said.According to Das, who is the sitting chairman of Maheshtala Municipality, 80 percent of the sprucing up of the roads has already been completed, along with complete overhaul of the water distribution system. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed”Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim has assured me to construct an intake jetty at Pujali for treatment of water, so that water from Pujali can also be used in Maheshtala,” Das maintained.Major real estate development like Eden City and Bata Riverside has changed the topography of the area. “The 19 km flyover from Jinjira Baazar to Bata will make the connectivity much better,” he added.The seat had been a CPI(M) bastion till 2011, when it lost to Trinamool Congress, which grabbed power in the state. Dulal’s wife late Kasturi Das defeated CPI(M)’s candidate by more than 26,000 votes. In 2016, she returned to defeat the party again by 12,452 votes. In contrast, the BJP received 3,689 votes in 2011 and 14,909 votes in 2016. The bypoll has been scheduled for May 28 and counting will be on May 31.The Maheshtala Assembly constituency has 35 wards of Maheshtala municipality. However, wards from 1 to 7, 9 and 10 have gone out of the municipality area because of delimitation.It may be mentioned that the 26 wards, starting from the border of Metiabruz-Garden Reach up to Shyampur, have a sharp divide not only population-wise, but also in terms of social status and economic sustainability. The area from Shyampur to Batanagar has a dominance of Hindu population, which thrives on service and business, while the 45 percent Muslim population living on the both sides of the railway track from Brace-Bridge to Akra, Memanpur and Dakghar is mainly dependent on the garment industry.last_img read more

Machine learning based Emailsec360°surpasses 60 antivirus engines in detecting malicious emails

Machine learning based Emailsec360°surpasses 60 antivirus engines in detecting malicious emails

first_imgE-mail is the traditional, primary, and the most vital part of communication within business organizations. They hold minutes of important discussions, confidential documents as attachments, high-profile business contact details, and much more. Hence, hackers or intruders often use emails as a medium to deliver dangerous content to the victim via attachments or by providing links to malicious websites. Companies throughout the world take huge efforts to detect malicious content within their communication media by setting up robust antivirus firewalls. But, how secure are they? Many choose antivirus engines based on their popularity than its performance. The myth that famous antivirus packages get you utmost security is now debunked by Email-sec-360°. According to Phys Org, it surpasses 60 other popular antivirus packages known to us. Email-sec-360° is developed by Aviad Cohen, a Ph.D. student, and researcher at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) Malware Lab researchers. It detects unknown, malicious emails much more accurately than the popular antivirus products such as Kaspersky, McAfee, Avast, etc. Email-sec-360° vs other popular antivirus engines Present antivirus engines use rule-based methods to analyze specific email sections. These often overlook the other important parts of the email. Dr. Nir Nissim, head of the David and Janet Polak Family Malware Lab at Cyber@BGU, stated that the existing antivirus engines use signature-based detection methods. These methods are at times insufficient for detecting new and unknown malicious emails. However, Email-sec-360° is based on machine learning methods and leverages 100 general descriptive features extracted from all email components, which include the header, body and attachments. Also an interesting fact about this method is that, it does not require an internet access. Thus, it provides a seamless threat detection in real-time and can be easily deployed by any individual or organizations. A well-experimented approach by the Malware Lab The researchers used a collection of 33,142 emails, which included 12,835 malicious and 20,307 benign emails obtained between 2013 and 2016. Later, they compared their detection model to 60 industry-leading antivirus engines as well as previous research. On doing this, they found their system to outperform the next best antivirus engine, Cyren, by a 13 percent range. BGU’s Malware Lab method vs the others BGU Malware Lab plan to extend this method by including research and analysis of attachments (PDFs and Microsoft Office documents) within the Email-sec-360°. Dr. Nissim adds,”since these are often used by hackers to get users to open and propagate viruses and malware.” They are also planning to develop an online system that evaluates the security risk posed by an email message. This system will be based on advanced machine learning methods and would also allow users to submit suspicious email messages and quickly obtain a maliciousness score. The system will further recommend on how to treat the email and would help to collect benign and malicious emails for research purposes.

Wasmer introduces WebAssembly Interfaces for validating the imports and exports of a

first_imgYesterday, Syrus Akbary, the founder and CEO of Wasmer, introduced WebAssembly interfaces. It provides a convenient s-expression (symbolic expression) text format that can be used to validate the imports and exports of a Wasm module. Why WebAssembly Interfaces are needed? The Wasmer runtime initially supported only running Emscripten-generated modules and later on added support for other ABIs including WASI and Wascap. WebAssembly runtimes like Wasmer have to do a lot of checks before starting an instance. It does that to ensure a WebAssembly module is compliant with a certain Application Binary Interface (Emscripten or WASI). It checks whether the module imports and exports are what the runtime expects, namely the function signatures and global types match. These checks are important for: Making sure a module is going to work with a certain runtime. Assuring a module is compatible with a certain ABI. Creating a plugin ecosystem for any program that uses WebAssembly as part of its plugin system. The team behind Wasmer introduced WebAssembly Interfaces to ease this process by providing a way to validate imports and exports are as expected. This is how a WebAssembly Interface for WASI looks like: Source: Wasmer WebAssembly Interfaces allow you to run various programs with each ABI, such as Nginx (Emscripten) and Cowsay (WASI). When used together with WAPM (WebAssembly Package Manager), you will also be able to make use of the entire WAPM ecosystem to create, verify, and distribute plugins. They have also proposed it as a standard for defining a specific set of imports and exports that a module must have, in a way that is statically analyzable. Read the official announcement by Wasmer.

UK Neglect played role in 2013 deaths of 3 army reservists

first_img Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Top Stories LONDON (AP) — Neglect and delays in providing medical treatment contributed to the deaths of three British army reservists who collapsed during a grueling special forces selection march, a coroner ruled Tuesday.Lance Cpls. Edward Maher and Craig Roberts and Cpl. James Dunsby all suffered from heatstroke on July 13, 2013, when the men were taking part in the military exercise in the Brecon Beacons national park in Wales. The 16-mile (26-kilometer) hike took place on one of the year’s hottest days.Maher and Roberts were pronounced dead on the hills, while Dunsby died in a hospital two weeks later from multiple organ failure.Coroner Louise Hunt said all three men died as a result of a “failure to properly organize and manage” the exercise.Risk assessment before the march was inadequate, she said, adding that the three reservists “would have survived” if they received basic medical treatment in time.Brigadier John Donnelly, the army’s personnel director, apologized for the mistakes.“It is necessary to train our soldiers to the high standards to meet the security challenges that we face both in this country and overseas and to do this requires our individuals to push themselves and take some risk,” he said. “However, we must ensure those risks are carefully managed. In this case we did not do this and accept responsibility.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Early bird catches the cheaper airfare

first_imgPlanning ahead can save you big bucks, according to research, that found travellers could pay up to 116 percent more for an airfare purchased one day before travel compared to a ticket booked three weeks earlier.A FCm Travel Solutions study on tickets for the departure date of 5 July found tickets purchased 21 days before the date were at an average cost of $105, while the ticketing price for the day before departure shot up to $227.The company’s regional general manager Nick Queale said the study indicates that last minute tickets with most domestic carriers experience significant price rises and leisure travellers as well as business could benefit from booking early.“Buying tickets in advance is an important strategy for passengers to keep in mind particularly if you’re travelling in peak periods such as Christmas or school holidays when there is a higher demand for air travel,” Mr Queale advised.“For companies looking to reduce their business travel costs we recommend implementing an ‘advance purchase’ policy into staff travel guidelines to ensure maximum savings across all employee travel.”According to the study, even purchasing the ticket 11-20 days before departure can see an average 17 percent increase in cost to up to $123 while a ticket paid for two to five days before departure will rise by up to 43 percent to $150. “It’s crucial a business has access to experienced account managers that have the reporting technology and the airfare experience to know how to capture and benchmark this kind of data,” Mr Queale concluded.“Companies can use this information to improve the way they buy travel to increase savings over the long term.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

Analysis Better Schools Housing Prices Require Longer Commutes

Analysis Better Schools Housing Prices Require Longer Commutes

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured Home price Homebuying Homeowner school zone 2017-03-31 Rachel Williams Share Though suburban home prices typically go up in relation to school district quality, according to a recent New York Times analysis, there are some “sweet spots,” where affordable housing doesn’t mean sacrificing a good education.Using data from Redfin, as well as test scores from the Stanford Education Data Archive, Times writers Quoctrung Bui and Conor Dougherty analyzed school quality, home price, and commute time. What they found were a handful of pockets in the San Francisco, Boston, Minneapolis, and Chicago metro areas that still offer quality schools without the high price tag. The catch? They’re further out from the city and require longer commutes.“Living in the suburbs can save money, but residents pay in the form of longer commutes and loss of urban amenities,” Bui and Dougherty wrote.The writers listed Boston as a good example.“In the Boston area (where many suburban school districts are considered first-rate),” the analysis stated, “more expensive school districts like Brookline, Massachusetts, tend to have strong scores and relatively short commutes. Equally good districts, like Lexington, may be cheaper, but people living there face longer commutes.”Bui and Dougherty found that these sweet spots like Lexington are often because, in some cities, residents simply show a preference for urban living—no matter what school quality in the area looks like.“But in some areas–particularly a handful of dense cities with good public transit–the preference for being in the city center seems to outweigh the importance of school quality by a huge margin,” they wrote. “Homes in central city locations are generally more valued than those farther out, and prices in the urban locations have risen far faster than in the suburbs since 2000.”This was seen the most in San Francisco where, even though neighboring cities boast much better school districts, cost per square foot is significantly higher in the city. Minneapolis had the most comparable city vs. suburb prices.“The Bay Area is the most extreme case: Homes in the central city carry such a huge premium that buyers in suburban cities like Albany and San Ramon end up paying several hundred dollars less per square foot even though the schools are significantly better than those in San Francisco.”The public transit is key in these urban-dense cities, and it’s why similar trends can be seen in New York and Boston, too, Bui and Dougherty wrote.“What these cities have in common is that they are less automobile-dominated,” the analysis stated. “They are among the few American cities where a significant share of the population walks, bikes or takes public transit to work. So the lifestyle difference between living in the city and suburbs in those metropolitan areas is much more stark than in other places in America, where nearly everyone drives.”According to Nela Richardson, Chief Economist at Redfin, there are even smaller towns this applies to, too—namely Alexandria, Virginia, and Somerville, Massachusetts, which Richardson called “dense transit-friendly suburbs.” These are experiencing price increases tied to density, not school quality.“But in places like Phoenix, L.A., Dallas and Atlanta,” she said, “the trade-off between living in the city and the suburbs is not as great, so why not go to where the best schools are and homes cost the least?”According to the article, economists estimate that suburbs see a 2.5 percent jump in housing prices with every 5-percent increase in test scores.center_img March 31, 2017 598 Views Analysis: Better Schools, Housing Prices Require Longer Commuteslast_img read more

Rehandicapping the race of oneloss teams

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix “Win out and you’ve got nothing to worry about.”Ole Miss (7-1 record, No. 3 in latest AP poll)This week: Lost at LSU, 10-7The case for: The only team this season to beat Alabama, owns a solid neutral-site non-conference win over Boise State, dominant in wins over Texas A&M and Tennessee. Has a very strong case for the best defense in the country. Gets Auburn this week.The case against: Has to turn around and play Auburn this week. Getting Tennessee and Vanderbilt from the SEC East will do them no favors. Other contenders will have better non-conference wins.Auburn (6-1 record, No. 5 in latest AP poll)This week: Beat South Carolina, 42-35The case for: Thursday night win at Kansas State is arguably the most impressive non-conference win in the nation, and certainly in the SEC. Still has more chances to impress than anyone in college football with games against Ole Miss, Alabama and Georgia, plus South Carolina and Texas A&M.The case against: Will fall behind Mississippi State in the event of a loss by the Bulldogs. Other than that, not much of one. Next week’s game at Ole Miss is huge, obviously.Alabama (6-1, No. 7)This week: Won at Tennessee, 34-20The case for: With games against No. 1 Mississippi State and No. 5 Auburn waiting (plus LSU) Alabama has more chances to impress than the rest of their competition. And both must come to Tuscaloosa, where they’ve racked up 1,247 yards and 101 points in their last two games. A 10-point neutral site win over West Virginia has aged like Apple stock.The case against: A 10-point neutral-site, non-conference win over a ranked team is a win the committee will respect. Problem is, it’s the Tide’s only win over a ranked team so far.Oregon (7-1, No. 6)This week: Beat California in Santa Clara, 59-41The case for: Has a strong argument for best non-conference win in college football with 19-point win over otherwise-undefeated Michigan State. Blew out UCLA and Washington. When it’s all said and done, Ducks could have wins over five teams that were ranked at the time. Loss to Arizona could fall under injury considerations in the eyes of the committee.The case against: Lost at home, unlike other one-loss front-runners Ole Miss, Auburn, Alabama, and TCU.Ohio State (6-1, No. 13)This week: Won at Penn State, 31-24 in double overtimeThe case for: This team looked every bit like a top four team since loss to Virginia Tech, beating likely bowl teams Cincinnati, Maryland and Rutgers by nearly 30 points per game, until struggling with Penn State. Still, a conference win on the road is a conference win on the road. Chance to earn impressive road win at Michigan State. Play of J.T. Barrett since Virginia Tech loss creates a discussion point for the committee.The case against: That Virginia Tech loss has aged like a carton of milk on a Las Vegas sidewalk in the middle of July.Notre Dame (6-1, No. 7)This week: OffThe case for: Walked into the house of the defending national champions and more than held their own. Earned a hard-fought win over Stanford. Challenging remaining schedule (at No. 14 Arizona State, vs. Louisville, at No. 20 USC) leaves plenty of opportunities to impress the committee.The case against: Best win so far is actually a loss. First-half schedule did pan out as planned with Michigan and North Carolina going belly up. Has not won a true road game this season.Georgia (6-1, No. 9)This week: Off The case for: Odds on favorite to win SEC East, placing them 60 minutes away from an SEC championship. Win over Clemson gets more impressive by the week. Still has chance to earn major win over Auburn, and a quality win over Georgia Tech. Nov. 8 trip to Kentucky is the only true road game left on the schedule.The case against: Win over Clemson was before Deshaun Watson took control of the Tigers’ offense. Loss at South Carolina looks less forgivable now than it seemed at the time.Michigan State (6-1, No. 8)This week: Beat Michigan in East Lansing, 35-11The case for: Should earn major brownie points from the committee for traveling to Oregon. Held a two-score lead in every game this season. Gets Ohio State at home, plus possible Big Ten championship berth.The case against: Most, and only, impressive win so far is five-point defeat of Nebraska at home. Oregon loss means only chance for impressive win in an opponent’s stadium is at Maryland.Kansas State (6-1, No. 11)This week: Beat Texas in Manhattan, 23-0The case for: K-State is alone in first place in the Big 12, the only team in the conference still with a chance to run the table. The list of teams to win in Norman during the Stoops tenure is short, and Kansas State has now done it in two straight trips. Still has games with Oklahoma State, West Virginia, TCU and Baylor remaining, the latter three on the road. The loss to Auburn will play better during selection committee discussions than it would in the BCS era.The case against: Loss to Auburn means Kansas State’s only non-conference wins are Stephen F. Austin and UTEP.TCU (6-1, No. 10)This week: Crushed Texas Tech in Fort Worth, 82-27The case for: Win over Minnesota is the best non-conference win by a Big 12 team. Frogs’ play against Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech makes fourth quarter against Baylor look like a major aberration. Gets Kansas State at home.The case against: Baylor loss means TCU’s only chance for an impressive road victory is at West Virginia. Light closing schedule (at Kansas, at Texas, vs. Iowa State) doesn’t leave opportunity to impress after mid-November. That said, I really think the committee will like this team.Utah (6-1, No. 19)This week: Beat USC, 24-21The case for: Four wins over Power Five opponents, three of which came on the road. Has games with No. 17 Arizona State, No. 9 Oregon, No. 23 Stanford and No. 16 Arizona coming consecutively, and is fresh off a win over No. 22 USC. This is a team that the committee should like, but, then again, so are all these teams.The case against: Those three road Power Five wins are against Michigan, UCLA and Oregon State. Loss to Washington State, in which Utes held 21-0 lead and lost 28-27, won’t look good in front of the committee.Arizona State (6-1, No. 14)The case for: Out-Stanforded Stanford in 26-10 win, giving the Sun Devils two wins over currently ranked teams. Still has home games with Utah and Notre Dame, plus trips to Arizona and a potential date with Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship. Playing much better defense over the past two weeks.The case against: 62-27 home loss to UCLA was the very definition of ugly at the time, and looks worse now. So bad was that loss that Arizona State, playing without starting quarterback Taylor Kelly that night, can not use the injury consideration asterisk that Oregon and Ohio State will make their proverbial cases with.“You’re going to need some help.”Arizona (6-1, No. 15)This week: Beat Washington State in Pullman, 59-37The case for: Beat Oregon in Eugene. Only loss came on a missed field goal in crunch time. Beat Oregon in Eugene. Still has chances for impressive wins at UCLA (although the value is falling here), vs. Washington, at Utah and vs. Arizona State. Beat Oregon in Eugene.The case against: The non-conference slate is severely lacking compared to the rest of the Pac-12 contenders, which makes Arizona the most vulnerable to the Pac-12’s cannibalistic tendencies.Baylor (6-1, No. 12)This week: OffThe case for: Improbable as it was, this is still the team that beat TCU. Still has games with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Kansas State ahead, the latter two in Waco.The case against: Non-conference schedule of SMU, Northwestern State and Buffalo is essentially begging for a slap on the wrist from the committee.“We’re glad you’re here, now go ahead and take a seat at the back of the room.”Nebraska (7-1, No. 16)This week: Beat Rutgers in Lincoln, 42-24The case for: Favorite for Big Ten West championship, one upset away from becoming Big Ten champion.The case against: Loss to Michigan State means Huskers may not beat a ranked team until Big Ten championship. Best non-conference win was Miami. Needed Heisman-worthy play by Ameer Abdullah to avoid overtime with McNeese State..Duke (6-1, unranked)This week: OffThe case for: If they can win out and beat an undefeated Florida State in the ACC championship….The case against: Will likely finish regular season with zero wins over ranked teams. Played Elon, Troy, Kansas and Tulane in non-conference. Even if they win the ACC Coastal, it’s still the ACC Coastal. Is Duke. The College Football Playoff selection committee will release its first set of (way too early, entirely unnecessary) Top 25 rankings on Tuesday night. With one more week of data to analyze, placing the contenders and pseudo-contenders into groups is a little bit easier.We can assume undefeateds Mississippi State and Florida State will claim the top two spots, but how does the race for the other two spots size up? As you’ll see, a full dozen teams have played themselves into position to where they feel like they have relative control of their own destiny. Obviously, there are only four golden tickets in existence, and two of them are taken at the moment. We can’t wait to see how the committee ranks them on Tuesday, and how the next six weeks are going to play out.This is going to be fun.last_img read more

Japanese travel pros get a taste of the Pacific

Japanese travel pros get a taste of the Pacific

first_imgThe Pacific Islands Centre (PIC) the Tokyo, Japan-based office that works with the Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) Network teamed up with Tabix, one of Japan’s leading provider of domestic and international travel related services to host a promotional event for Pacific Island tourism.Promotion Coordinator of PIC Reiko Takada delivered a comprehensive presentation that covered 14 Pacific Island Countries, featuring each country’s unique attributes and sights, to about 30 members of Tabix. The idea was to familiarise the travel professionals with the exotic destinations around the Pacific Islands.“Pacific Island Countries are largely uncharted areas for many, although they are keen travellers who have travelled the world,” Ms Takada said.As well as presentations, the event also showcased foods and beverages from around the islands.Among the presenters were Mr. and Mrs. Palei from Tonga who went beyond speaking about tourism to describing Tonga’s everyday life eliciting much interest, Ms Takada said. “On top of that, some members who made trips aroundTonga and Niue talked about their own journey. All in all, this was informative and very successful event,” she added.Products displayed and sampled were Noni juice from Tonga and Samoa, Coffee from Papua New Guinea and taro chips and chocolate of Samoa. All the participants received a gift of the very popular Christmas Island salt from Kiribati, Ms Takada told Pacific Periscope.In this manner, this event was an excellent opportunity to increase recognition of products of the area.For more information email For more information email Pacific Islands Centre’s Promotional Coordinator Reiko Takada at rtakada@pic.or.jpThe post Japanese travel pros get a taste of the Pacific appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

Jim Harbaugh rips Paul err Pete Finebaum

Jim Harbaugh rips Paul err Pete Finebaum

first_img“This is wrong,” Finebaum said. “It may not be illegal by NCAA standards and bylaws as of this moment, but to me it’s cheating. It’s blatantly disregarding the spirit of the NCAA rule. We all know why he’s doing it. And this is the same person who last year accused Nick Saban of cheating, he accused Hugh Freeze of cheating, and in my mind, and I know you can’t prove it and he won’t be penalized for it, but he’s cheating and why don’t we just face up to it? There’s no other reason why he would hire this man. It’s been done in the past… but it’s still wrong. I don’t know why the media celebrates Jim Harbaugh for disregarding the NCAA rule book and doing things that are in my mind unethical.”(For what it’s worth, Finebaum also had Bacon on his radio show Thursday and shared none of these takes. He was completely complimentary of Harbaugh.)Calling him by the wrong name — which was 100 percent intentional, in a way your friends pretended not to know whether Justin Timberlake was in Backstreet Boys or NSync — Harbaugh told Paul Finebaum, “the unabashed SEC water carrier,” to “get his facts straight.” He then tagged the tweet with an #AlternativeFacts hashtag.Pete Finebaum, the unabashed SEC water carrier, really needs to get his facts straight. #AlternativeFacts— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) February 17, 2017Much like his SEC Media Days beef with Nick Saban last summer, any warring of words between Finebaum and a powerful coach ends with Finebaum winning by losing.And…the response:.@CoachJim4UM pic.twitter.com/MPiobmAKV6— SEC Network (@SECNetwork) February 17, 2017 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Back before anyone thought he would win the election, Paul Finebaum called Jim Harbaugh the Donald Trump of college football.Judge that comment however you wish, but Harbaugh did a very Trump-ian thing on Thursday night, firing off a Twitter burn at a media enemy.First, the backstory.Finebaum appeared on ESPN’s Outside the Lines alongside author and Michigan insider John Bacon to debate Michigan’s hiring of California high school coach Michael Johnson, who just so happens to be the father of a prized 2019 quarterback recruit. Harbaugh is far from the first coach to make such a hire, but the first to do so in such a Harbaughian way.last_img read more

Health minister trying to find solution to AE staff shortages

Health minister trying to find solution to AE staff shortages

first_imgIN A two-hour meeting on Thursday, Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou, along with the state health services (Okypy) and A&E department directors discussed solutions to the understaffing and scheduling problems being faced by public hospital A&Es.Directors of A&E departments were presented with possible solutions and a timeline for the enhancement of human resources. They were also informed that 10 vacancies had been announced for A&E staff.All parties agreed to reconvene in three weeks to evaluate the progress of the decisions reached on Thursday, and recognised the need for a continuation of the dialogue in view of finding permanent solutions and establishing the smooth operation of A&E departments.On Wednesday, members of state doctors’ union Pasyki who work in A&E departments threatened a 24-hour strike on July 9 over understaffing.It is unclear whether Thursday’s decisions will lead to a cancellation of the strike action.The union’s leader Soteris Koumas said on Wednesday that at least 20 more doctors are needed for the state hospitals’ A&E departments.He said 15 doctors left these departments, arguing that the Nicosia general hospital’s A&E is down to 11 doctors of the 19 it had, while in Limassol there are also 11 doctors after five walked out.Koumas said that there were also problems with time schedules of doctors working in A&Es and called for dialogue on incentives for doctors working in these departments.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
