After one game, the Crimson Tide still hold the title of America’s best college football team among coaches and Associated Press members.Louisville couldn’t do anything to slow down the Tide during Week 1, though there were plenty of story-lines from the game – namely among Alabama’s quarterbacks. Tua Tagovailoa got the majority of snaps and looked like a Heisman Trophy candidate.Where does that leave Jalen Hurts? Well, according to a new report, Hurts and Nick Saban have come to an agreement that will preserve some of the quarterback’s eligibility.According to Aaron Suttles of the Athletic, Hurts will redshirt unless Tua gets injured.Our own @AaronSuttles tells us expect Jalen Hurts to be redshirted this season unless Tua is injured. @3ManFront pic.twitter.com/xthD6kKr8P— Pat Smith (@patsmithradio) September 7, 2018As per the NCAA’s new rules for the 2018 season, Hurts must play in four or fewer games to retain his redshirt. After seeing action against Louisville last weekend, Hurts has three games remaining.The national title-winning quarterback graduates in December and can transfer to play for another program.last_img read more

UNICEF ambassador voices concern for Central Africans on lack of clean water

6 November 2008The United States rock singer and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador Joel Madden has voiced concern for the thousands of children in the Central African Republic (CAR) whose lives are threatened by tainted water diseases after completing his first visit to the impoverished, strife-torn country. “To come here and see these children dying just because they don’t have clean water to drink, I can’t accept that,” Mr. Madden said after his first mission as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.Touring the country with his brother Benji, a fellow member of the band Good Charlotte, Mr. Madden’s trip included visits to the capital Bangui, as well as some of the remotest villages of CAR. Visiting Sam Ouandja, a town near the border with Sudan’s Darfur region that has been attacked by rebels twice in the last year, Mr. Madden learned of the plight of the local children in a town where nearly 50 per cent die each year due to water tainted diseases. “Without access every day to clean water sustainable development is impossible; returning to villages for displaced people is just a dream,” said Mahimbo Mdoe, a UNICEF official in the CAR. “We are facing a huge infrastructure deficit and we are struggling to get more and more support.”CAR suffers from one of the worst child mortality rates in Africa, with one in five children not living to see their fifth birthday. The maternal mortality rate has also reached 1,355 per 100,000 mothers and the prevalence of HIV/AIDS – estimated at 6.2 per cent of population – continues to wreak havoc as well. UNICEF has made continued efforts to provide safe drinking water in CAR, with the UN agency last year supporting water projects, including the repair and drilling of hundreds of wells for people living in conflict-affected areas. Through such programmes, all prefectures affected by violence in the north of the country now have access to UNICEF-sponsored water, sanitation and hygiene schemes. With many gaps still remaining in access to safe drinking water, Mr. Madden called on the CAR Government to spend more on water. He also issued a plea to leaders of developed nations to become more active in helping fund solutions to prevent deaths. “Every day children in CAR are dying from preventable diseases caused by a lack of safe water,” said Mr. Madden. “The good news is that we can stop this now.” read more

US home construction jumps in February

US home construction jumps in February In this Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016, photo, a “Sold” sign sits in front of a house under the final stages of construction in Plano, Texas. On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, the Commerce Department reports on U.S. home construction in February. (AP Photo/LM Otero) by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Mar 16, 2016 6:44 am MDT Last Updated Mar 16, 2016 at 2:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Construction of new homes rose in February to the highest level in five months, but applications for new construction were weak for a third month.Housing starts rose 5.2 per cent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.18 million units, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. Construction had fallen in January in December, declines that had been blamed in part on winter weather.Applications for building permits, a gauge of future activity, fell 3.1 per cent to an annual rate of 1.17 million units after a flat reading in January and a drop in December.The decline in building permits, unless reversed, could signal future trouble in an industry that was a bright spot for the economy last year.But Bricklin Dwyer, an economist with BNP Paribas, said the slump in building permit applications should only translate into a brief construction slowdown given the solid fundamentals supporting housing.“We see a resilient labour market as supportive of a continued slow and steady housing recovery and low housing inventory should continue to bolster residential construction ahead,” Dwyer said.For February, construction of single-family homes rose 7.2 per cent to an annual rate of 822,000 units. Construction in the smaller apartment sector edged up a slight 0.8 per cent to a rate of 356,000 units.Regionally, construction activity plunged 51.3 per cent in the Northeast but showed strength in all other regions. Construction rose 19.9 per cent in the Midwest, 7.1 per cent in the South and 26.1 per cent in the West.The National Association of Homebuilders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index held steady at 58 for March. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor.Sales of new homes surged 14.5 per cent last year to 501,000, marking the strongest year for this segment of the housing market since 2007.Economists are forecasting another good year for housing as strong employment gains led more people to decide to purchase homes. Strength in home construction was a pillar of growth for the economy last year. read more

ATLANTA, Georgia — Josh Donaldson is heading to Atlanta.The Braves announced Monday they had signed the former Blue Jay and 2015 American League MVP to a one-year deal worth US$23 million, a salary that matches what the third baseman made during a forgettable 2018 season.The move also reunites Donaldson with former Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos, who was hired as Atlanta’s GM and executive vice president last November. Donaldson, hampered by shoulder inflammation and calf issues, played just 36 games for Toronto in 2018 and was traded to the Cleveland Indians on Aug. 31.He finished the year hitting .246 with eight homers and 23 RBIs between the two teams.The Canadian Press

Nokia executives take 68 weeks summer vacation every year

first_imgIf you want to know one of the reasons why Nokia has lagged behind Apple and other mobile phone manufacturers in the recent past, you might want to take a look at what the company’s executives did with their summers.Adam Greenfield, who used to be an employee with the company from 2008 to 2010, told Bloomberg that when it came to decisions needed during the summer they were generally put off until September. The problem was that beginning in mid-July many executives ran off to summer cottages. This delay in the ability to make quick decisions could have been a key reason many of Nokia’s top-end smartphones have been delayed. It may also be one of the reasons that Nokia’s market share has dropped from 50.8%, before the iPhone began shipping, to 30.8% today.To help turn the tide, Nokia brought in Stephen Elop, former head of Microsoft’s business division, back in September as the company’s new President and CEO.  Elop took little time to shake things up by announcing a new partnership with Microsoft in February which would make Windows Phone the primary operating system om Nokia phones going forward. Prior to the partnership, Nokia’s primary mobile operating system has been Symbian while the company has also explored the MeeGo OS for high-end smartphones with the first such device planned for later this year.While it is believed the new Microsoft deal was a lucrative one for Nokia, investors have been less than optimistic. Shares of Nokia have dropped 25% since the Microsoft deal was first announced making the total decline of Nokia’s stock since the iPhone was first shipped 70%. Unfortunately, Elop may see things get a bit worse before they get better. In the wake of news that executives slowed decisions due to summer vacations, Elop must now soon face unions who have previously won Nokia workers four weeks of summer holiday.Read more at Bloomberg, via SAIlast_img read more

Explainer Britain has triggered Article 50 but is it reversible

first_img 31 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3316946 Share3 Tweet Email1 Anti-Brexit campaigners dressed as customs officers protest outside Stormont this week. Source: PA Wire/PA ImagesTHE ANSWER TO the question of whether Britain’s exit process from the European Union is revocable is simple: it just depends who you ask.British Prime Minister Theresa May insisted after triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on Wednesday that it was a “historic moment from which there can be no turning back”.But hours later European Parliament President Antonio Tajani said the clock could in theory be reversed, if only with the approval of the other 27 member states.“If the UK now changes its mind it can’t do it alone, all the other member states of the union have to decide if they can do it or not,” Italy’s Tajani said.The apparently contradictory remarks reflect a political and legal ambiguity about whether Britain is saying goodbye forever.The once obscure and now famous Article 50 is frustratingly vague on this issue, as on most others.It says merely that “a Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention.”It then adds: ”If a State which has withdrawn from the Union asks to rejoin, its request shall be subject to the procedure referred to in Article 49,” referring to the section for fresh applications to join the bloc.Britain’s Supreme Court said in January that it was “common ground” that the notice was “irrevocable and cannot be conditional”, although it was not ruling on that subject but on parliament’s supremacy.The European Commission appears to be agree, but only on the surface.“Once triggered, it cannot be unilaterally reversed. Notification is a point of no return,” it said in a statement on Article 50 on Wednesday.But this appears to leave open the possibility suggested by Tajani that the other 27 EU states could agree to let it reverse the notification.‘Can’t be forced to leave’The European Parliament mentions the possibility of revoking Article 50 in a resolution on Brexit that it intends to pass next week, if only to say that a “revocation of notification needs to be subject to conditions” so it cannot be “abused in an attempt to improve the current terms of the UK’s membership”.A leading EU legal expert said that all the work on creating Article 50 nearly a decade ago had been focused on making it a smooth process for a country to exit, and that Brussels officials believed it was irreversible.“But it was admitted that it could be considered that it is reversible in exceptional cases,” added the expert, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of his position.The author of Article 50, John Kerr, who in a piece of historical irony is British, had the same idea.“An Article 50 notification is not irrevocable,” he told the House of Lords in February.If, having looked into the abyss, we were to change our minds about withdrawal, we certainly could and no one in Brussels could stop us.Jean-Claude Piris, a former director of legal services at the European Council who is now a consultant, agreed.“If the British authorities said ‘I don’t want to any more’, you can’t force a member state to leave,” he told AFP. “My theory is that in this case you would return to the status quo.” Prime Minister Theresa May (right) and Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon meet at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Glasgow this week. Source: PA Wire/PA Images‘Quite punchy’ Ultimately, the question is a legal one.Politically there appears to be little will in Britain at the moment to defy the result of a referendum that, however much of a shock, is uncontested.But Jolyon Maugham, a British lawyer who has launched legal action in Ireland in a bid to force the European Court of Justice to rule on whether Britain can reverse Article 50, says that could still change.“It is just quite punchy to assert that the political mood will remain static,” he said.There is quite compelling evidence that people are changing their minds about the cost of Brexit for them.- © AFP 2017Read: A ‘vanishing’ congressman, a mysterious White House visit: The latest twists in the Trump/Russia sagaRead: Ivanka Trump taking on unpaid White House job By AFP 12,796 Views Apr 1st 2017, 7:30 AM center_img Saturday 1 Apr 2017, 7:30 AM Explainer: Britain has triggered Article 50 – but is it reversible?

Young minds sketch of sustainable goals

first_imgThe United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) for India and Bhutan had decided to jump-start the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by launching a creative campaign and involving 17 schools in the Delhi-NCR region. An art exhibition titled ‘#ARTisTRY4SDG’ involving 17 schools was inaugurated by Louis-Georges Arsenault, Country Representative, UNICEF and Deepak Mittal, Managing Director, Sonalika ITL, the CSR partner of the exhibition, in the presence of Shyam Sharma, eminent artist and Rajiv Chandran at The Indian Habitat Centre on March 2 in the national Capital. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The students had been provided with canvases and paints and were guided with workshops explaining the goals, by the UN. Shyam Sharma on interacting with the students, praised the artworks and said, “The concept of this community project is very unique. These paintings have a good amalgamation of simplicity, spontaneity, art and unique ideas. It is simplicity that is the speciality in children. This project is helping ideate developments among children through visual art.” Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe focus of this art exhibition lies on the 17 goals to transform the world, through artistic interpretation of the SDGs by the artworks of the students from the 17 selected schools, who were asked to translate their creative vision of one SDG onto a painting. These painted canvases will be on display at the India Habitat Centre till March 23 to pass on the SDG messages to the wider public.“If there is one goal that needs to be met in the next 15 years in India, it is that all Indian children must have access to reasonably good education up to grade 10 and 12,” said Louis-Georges Arsenault. He also spoke about the problems of sanitation and gender inequality in India and how the youngsters can change the society gradually.  The 17 participating schools are American Embassy School, Amity International School (Saket), Andhra Education Society, Bal Bharati School (Ganga Ram Hospital Marg), Convent of Jesus and Mary, Delhi Public School (Gurgaon), Kendriya Vidyalaya (Gole Market), Kendriya Vidyalaya (Pragati Vihar), Modern School (Barakhamba Road), N P co-ed Sr Secondary School (Lodhi Road), Rajmas School, St Columba’s School, Springdales Schools (Pusa Road), Step by Step School, Tagore International School (East of Kailash), The British School and Vasant Valley School. “We contacted 17 schools in Delhi, during December and surprisingly all of them agreed to take part. As I wanted a mix, we have got government schools, international schools, and ethnic language schools participating. “The children have explained the SD goals far better than what we see in academics and conferences. The voices of young people always go ignored, but the UN decided to listen to the voice of the youth, hence we came up with this show. We are also going to launch an essay competition for school and college students next month,” said Rajiv Chandran.last_img read more

How to choose right food for cats

first_imgIt’s not just dogs, but cats can be your furry friends too. If you got one, understand how to maintain their nutritional requirements to ensure a healthy lifestyle for cats, say experts. Lack of proper knowledge about the essential nutrients required for their diet can be detrimental to the cat’s health and growth. Experts have shared some key points to keep in mind while selecting the right food: Cats have unique nutritional needs: Nutrients such as taurine should be included in their diet as they are unable to produce sufficient amounts naturally. A deficiency in taurine can result in a number of conditions in which their heart and eye health can severely suffer. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfCats need more protein: Adult cats require approximately 44 per cent more protein than adult dogs. If protein intake is inadequate, the cat will start to break down its own body protein to meet its energy requirements. This high protein must also be accompanied by essential amino acids, essential fatty acids and vitamins such as A and D. Cats are picky eaters: It is necessary to provide cats with an exciting mealtime experience. While complete nutrition is extremely important for cats, it is equally important to delight their senses through differently shaped kibbles and delicious aromas. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveCats enjoy small meals: Unlike dogs, cats are nibblers and enjoy many small meals throughout the day. Hence, it is important that the food is nutritionally balanced and provides the right nutrients in adequate amounts. Cats cannot survive on a vegetarian diet: Cats are obligate carnivores, hence it is impossible to meet their requirements with a vegetarian diet. Cats also have different nutritional requirements and different ways in which their body assimilates nutrients hence cat food formulated by nutritionists addresses these unique needs.last_img read more
