He said: “Our experience of Newcastle last year was that they sat in and defended deep, and we found it difficult to break them down.“That was a challenge that when the manager came to the club, he wanted to help us in that aspect – of setting our team up and being able to work teams that are going to sit in against us, which is becoming quite a common theme.Newcastle did that very well against us last year, so I think they’ll come with the same game plan.” last_img read more

Accident at secret Russian Nmissile test site… 5 dead

first_imgMoscow: Russia confirmed on Saturday that an explosion at an Arctic missile testing site killed five nuclear agency staff and involved radioactive isotopes after a nearby city reported a spike in radiation levels. In a statement, Russia’s nuclear agency Rosatom said the accident on Thursday at a secret military facility also left three staff with burns and other injuries. The military had not previously described the accident as involving nuclear fuel and said radiation levels were normal afterwards. But officials in the nearby city of Severodvinsk reported that radiation levels were briefly raised after the accident.

An explosion sparked a fire, killing two, the defence ministry said in a brief statement. Rosatom said its staff were providing engineering and technical support for the “isotope power source” of the engine being tested. The authorities have released few details of the accident at the Nyonoksa test site on the White Sea, used for testing missiles deployed in N-submarines and ships since the Soviet era. The defence ministry said six ministry staff and a developer were injured while two “specialists” died of their wounds.last_img read more

BC government invites public to share views on marijuana rules

first_imgVANCOUVER – A Vancouver councillor says it may take years, but he can see the day a craft cannabis industry emerges in British Columbia, with smoking lounges in the city allowing people to responsibly sample strains of specially cultivated marijuana.“It wasn’t long ago there was a government monopoly on beer and craft beer was illegal,” Kerry Jang said. “Now what do we see? We see a huge market for craft beer. We see responsible usage. We see breweries, brew pubs that didn’t exist before. Why not with marijuana?”Jang made his comments Monday at the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention where the province announced a five-week public consultation process on the future of cannabis.The government wants to solicit input from residents as well as local government, First Nations and industry on how it can best protect children, keep roads safe after the federal government legalizes marijuana on July 1.Solicitor General Mike Farnworth said while the timeline imposed by the federal government is tight, the public must have a chance to propose ideas and raise concerns.“The best public policy isn’t imposed from up above,” he told reporters. “The best public policy is made when there’s a sense that people understand the questions … and they feel they’ve had a say.”The consultation process is scheduled to last until Nov. 1 to allow the B.C. government time to draft regulations ahead of the spring session of the legislature, which must happen in order to have a law in place by next Canada Day, Farnworth said.Federal legislation has yet to be finalized, but the provinces will have the power to regulate the retail sale of marijuana and to upgrade traffic safety laws to protect people on the roads from cannabis-impaired drivers.Farnworth said some elements of the provincial regulatory framework will have to be universal, such as the distribution model and the minimum age of consumption, but it must also give municipalities room to manoeuvre based on the wishes of local residents.“I don’t see any reason at all why we have to have a one-size-fits-all approach in terms of retail distribution in British Columbia,” he said.Jang agreed, adding the province will benefit from the experiences of Vancouver and Victoria in regulating the industry. He said he supports the government’s outreach plans.“My initial response when I talked with minister Farnworth was, ‘Gee, pinch me. Wake me up. Is this really happening?’” Jang said.Perry Kendall, B.C.’s chief medical officer, spoke earlier Monday to convention delegates about his work with the national task force on legalizing and regulating marijuana, and about the challenge of striking the right balance.Kendall spoke of how health experts concerned about the impact of marijuana on developing brains urge a minimum age of 25, but that kind of policy would relegate a significant number of young users out of reach and into the black market.Provinces have put pressure on the federal government to push back the July 1 timeline, echoing public health and safety concerns raised by police agencies and youth health experts.Ontario became the first province to release details of its plans to regulate cannabis, saying it will impose a minimum age of 19 for consumption, restrict sales to certain government liquor stores and limit pot use solely to private residences.Alberta is partially through its own public consultation, while Quebec’s wrapped up earlier this month.— Follow @gwomand on Twitterlast_img read more

TransCanada going ahead with 24billion expansion of NGTL system

first_imgCALGARY – TransCanada Corp. is investing $2.4 billion to expand its NGTL natural gas system in Western Canada as growing production in the region has filled existing capacity and battered prices.The company said Thursday that the decision to expand NGTL comes after it recently completed an oversubscribed open season, with shippers committing to one billion cubic feet per day of expansion capacity for an average of almost 29 years.“The successful open season shows strong industry support to significantly expand transmission capacity out of the basin and improve market connectivity for Canadian natural gas production,” said company chief executive Russ Girling in a statement.The NGTL system is a dense web of pipeline that covers much of Alberta and runs into northeastern B.C., acting as a gathering system for producers in some of the richest natural gas basins on the continent.Producers in the region have, however, been victims of their own success in unlocking the shale gas in areas like the Montney and Deep Basin, as pipeline constraints and lack of demand in some markets have hit prices that have even strayed into negative territory.“If you imagine Alberta today as a sink and the tap’s on, right now the sink is filling up faster than it can drain,” said Brook Papau, managing director of RS Energy Group.Traditional export routes to California and the U.S. Midwest, as well as using the gas in province, are full-up, said Papau, leaving producers to look to Eastern Canada to find better prices.TransCanada said its investment in the NGTL system will help link more production to its Mainline system that runs to Ontario and which still has significant untapped capacity.The expansion program will include approximately 375 kilometres of large diameter pipeline, compression facilities, meter stations and other associated facilities.The company has already alleviated some pressure in the region after reaching long-term fixed price agreements last year with shippers on its Mainline, and said Thursday it continues to look at the potential of further expanding natural gas shipping on the pipeline.“We continue to work diligently with industry to facilitate economic access for their natural gas to key export markets, including access to Eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast through TransCanada’s Canadian Mainline and downstream systems,” said Girling.TransCanada would have to invest some capital to restore the extra capacity in the Mainline, but another open season on the pipeline would be well-received, said energy analyst Ed Kallio, principal at Eau Claire Energy Advisory, Inc.“I have no doubt that if they do an open season it will be very highly subscribed.”Producers have been scrambling to find alternatives after West Coast liquefied natural gas projects have failed to emerge, said Kallio, while producers haven’t cut back on production because the shale formations are also yielding valuable liquids used to dilute thick bitumen.“Those high value liquids are driving activity, and the natural gas comes along with it.”TransCanada said it expects to file a project description with the National Energy Board by the second quarter of this year to start the review process and hopes to begin construction on the NGTL expansion in 2019.The Calgary-based company reported net income attributable to shareholders of $861 million or 98 cents per share in the fourth-quarter of 2017, compared to a loss of $358 million or 43 cents per share in the same period a year earlier.Fourth-quarter earnings were boosted by a number of one-time items, including an $804 million recovery of deferred income taxes as a result of U.S. tax reform.The company said it continues to make progress on its Keystone XL pipeline project after announcing sufficient shipper support in January but has still held back on officially sanctioning the project.TransCanada has said it is however working on construction preparation as well as new landowner agreements in Nebraska and general permitting.Companies in this story: (TSX:TRP)last_img read more

Buckeyes earn No 4 seed in NCAA Tournament prepare to play UCF

After struggling through the heart of its season, the Ohio State women’s basketball team finished strong, winning its final nine games and earning a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes (22-9, 10-6 Big Ten) are playing their first game of the tournament in Columbus against the University of Central Florida, the No. 13 seed in the Dayton region. If OSU beats the Knights (22-10, 12-4 C-USA), its second game will be against the winner of No. 5 Georgia Tech (23-10, 9-5 ACC) and No. 12 Bowling Green (28-4, 13-3 MAC), also in Columbus. Led by senior forward Jantel Lavender, four-time Big Ten Player of the Year, the Buckeyes will look to make a run out of Columbus, possibly to meet No. 1 Tennessee (31-2, 16-0 SEC) in Dayton. The No. 1 overall seed in the tournament is UConn (32-1, 16-0 Big East). The Huskies have won the NCAA Tournament championship the past two years, and look to repeat this year out of the Philadelphia region.

Ohio State set to battle Nebraska in Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinals

Junior center Amir Williams (23) dunks the ball during a game against Purdue March 13 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. OSU won, 63-61.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorINDIANAPOLIS — In postseason college basketball, winning supersedes all.Teams come into their conference’s respective tournaments with different amounts of dependance on each game — a win or two could help bolster an NCAA Tournament résumé. A bad loss could hurt seeding in the tournament, or a program could need to run the table to secure its spot in the big dance.Ohio State’s tournament life is likely secure, but dropping a first-round game in the Big Ten Tournament to a team with a losing record — Purdue — wouldn’t have done the team any favors as far as seeding goes come Selection Sunday.But the Buckeyes in fact survived to play another day with a chance at the Big Ten Title, defeating the Boilermakers, 63-61, Thursday.The outcome wasn’t decided, however, until Purdue senior guard Terone Johnson’s final 3-pointer fell hopelessly to the floor at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. But a win is a win — the Buckeyes are now 23-9 all time in the Big Ten Tournament — and OSU is looking to further bolster its argument for a higher seed in the Big Dance when it plays in the quarterfinals Friday. Their opponent might come as a bit of a surprise to diehard Buckeye fans — Nebraska.Yes, Nebraska.The Cornhuskers (19-11, 11-7) earned the tournament’s fourth seed after dispatching then-No. 9 Wisconsin, 77-68, Sunday at home, and the program has been trending upward since Tim Miles took over prior to the 2012-13 season. Nebraska finished 12-18 the year before Miles arrived, but the coach has brought a new energy and aura to the program — even splitting games with OSU this season.The second meeting between the two teams was a 68-62 win for the Cornhuskers in Lincoln, Neb., a game that was the fourth consecutive loss for the Buckeyes. The rematch is a game senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said he’s been looking forward to playing ever since that loss.“I’m so ready to play these guys. Obviously when we lost to them up there and they stormed the court … but we get another crack at them,” Smith Jr. said after the win Thursday. “I’m expecting the team that I know this team can be to show up tomorrow and play those guys. I’m pretty sure everybody remembers that.”OSU shot 39.6 percent from the field in the loss, including making just six of 21 shots from beyond the arc. A pair of sophomores, guard Shavon Shields and forward Terran Petteway, paced the Huskers with 18 points each in the win, getting in the lane and drawing fouls to ultimately go a combined 10-13 from the free throw line.Nebraska also won eight of 10 games to close out the regular season to earn the No. 4 seed in the Big Ten Tournament.“They’re on a roll right now. They are playing great basketball, and obviously Shields and Petteway are doing a good job,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after his team’s victory against Purdue. “They’ve got guys that can stretch the defense, they’re shooting the ball well. I think they’re playing as well as anybody in the country right now.”Buckeye senior guard Aaron Craft tallied a team-high 12 points against Nebraska in the Jan. 20 loss, eight of which came from the free throw line. He finished with 16 Thursday against Purdue, also swiping three of OSU’s nine steals in the game.Craft said after the win against Purdue, shutting down the potent Nebraska guard play Friday is going to be a team effort.“It’s got to be a big defensive game for us. They’ve got bigs that can shoot the ball, and obviously Petteway and Shields, who are playing great basketball right now,” Craft said. “It’s going to be a big team defensive effort for us.”At times against the Boilermakers, OSU seemed disinterested, nearly sleepwalking its way to an early exit in what has been an up and down year. Doing the same against Nebraska, however, would yield a different result, Smith Jr. said.“Obviously, guys’ minds weren’t right (against Purdue),” he said. “We got Nebraska rolling in here, and they beat us already this year and I’m pretty sure they think they can beat us again.”Junior center Amir Williams — who had six points and grabbed nine rebounds against Purdue — said he believes Nebraska is on the bubble, but a win against OSU would go a long way for the team’s tournament hopes.“They’ve been on a tremendous run as of late. We have that in the back of our minds, we want to win, they want to win. If they win, I think they’re in the tournament. Right now they’re still on the bubble, we’re still playing for something so they’re still playing for something,” Williams said after the game Thursday. “We’re worried about ourselves, take it out on them Friday and get a victory.”Tipoff Friday is set for 25 minutes after the completion of No. 8 Michigan and Illinois at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. read more

Senior forward Kayla Varner struck the ball past Clem to even the game, 1-1.Seconds later, senior forward Paige Wester stunned the Buckeyes with a header off a cross from freshman forward Jamie Cheslik. The last-minute shot gave Michigan State the 2-1 victory.OSU ended the game leading 18-17 in shot attempts and 10-5 in shots on goal. The team fell to 5-8-2 overall and 2-5-2 in Big Ten play.Up next for the Buckeyes is a trip to play against No. 24 Michigan.“Obviously we always want to win the Michigan game,” freshman midfielder Sydney Dudley said. “It would be a big momentum booster and also just get our mentality right.”The team is looking forward to the game for the atmosphere surrounding the rivalry and will try to avenge a 2-0 loss against the Wolverines from last season, senior midfielder Ellyn Gruber said.“It’s always fun playing Michigan,” Gruber said. “It’s a good environment there and there’ll be a lot of fans and it’ll be fun.”“It’d be a nice little revenge after losing to them there last year,” Varner said. “It’d be nice to go into their home stadium and beat them.”“We thought that we were done with our season after that so that feeling we do not want again,” Gruber added.The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Wolverines on Sunday at 2 p.m. in Ann Arbor, Mich. read more

Video has been in circulation and has now made local TV news. The boys from one of the Provo-based public primary schools appear to capture themselves roughing up another boy, using foul language and completely enjoying repeatedly hitting the student. In the face, in the back, in the head, hits to the intimidated boy’s abdomen, lots of jeering and cheering and at one point the lead antagonist seems to spit on the bullying victim. The Ministry is discouraging spread of this video, but up to news production time well over 1,100 had viewed the news report by SunTV. I quote from a press release issued last night: “We are asking the public, that in the interest of the welfare and protection of the child who was bullied and parents, that we respect their rights and cease and desist from the circulation of this horrid video.” The authorities have already been called in this case.last_img read more

Honigstein Pulisic signing could allow Chelseas profile to grow in the

first_imgJournalist Raphael Honigstein believes the arrival of USA star Christian Pulisic could open up opportunities for Chelsea in the North American marketThe Blues completed a €64m transfer for Pulisic on Wednesday morning and have loaned him back to Borussia Dortmund until the end of this season.The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the exciting prospects in European football following an impressive spell in the Bundesliga with Manchester United and Liverpool having also been linked with moves.But Honigstein believes Chelsea could gain much more than just another great player in Pulisic due to his marketing appeal in the United States.“He’s a real talent and especially if you consider the marketing value as the No 1 American football player of his generation – it’s not a deal that feels expensive,” Honigstein told Sky Sports.“This is a player that a lot of Premier League clubs were interested in, he brings tremendous value when it comes to gaining followers and attention in America, which is a key market for many Premier League clubs for obvious reasons.“He might make it easier for Chelsea to, I would not say sell the club, but maybe exploit different opportunities in America.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“If Roman Abramovich deems that someone else should come in alongside him or maybe he wants to sell the club – all these things make it quite a smart business move, if you will.”The German football expert also believes Dortmund got a great deal for Pulisic considering he had decided to not renew his contract with them.“I think they (Dortmund) got the best out of the deal that was possible for them,” added Honigstein.“Once it became clear that he was not going to renew his contract which runs out in 2020 there was a real danger that he might run down his contract and they would lose him for nothing.“Effectively moving forward that move by a year and still achieving quite a high price should be considered a nice bit of business from Dortmund’s point of view.“But that does not mean the player is not worth it. Once Pulisic decided he would not stay at Dortmund beyond 2020 then really he became a free agent in all but name. Dortmund had to see if they could extract maximum value.“They didn’t have a good hand to deal with initially because the player was adamant he would not stay but as they often do, Dortmund managed to make the most out if it.”last_img read more

Or try stickers.          Does a costume call for different hair?   Use wigs and hats instead of spray-on hair coloring made with synthetic chemicals that are a bit too mysterious. Mask tips:      Certain headgear can limit your visibility, a child can be standing at your feet and out of your field of vision.    Props like fake teeth made from rubber and vinyl frequently contain lead paint and chemical plasticizers.Kids can actually absorb these while wearing them.Fake blood is usually made from an unsafe dye in a petroleum base, so avoid it, too.  If you or your kids are the creative type, try whipping some up your own fake blood with cornstarch and beet juice.Cosmetic contact lenses might seem like the perfect way to enhance your costume this year, but the American Academy of Ophthalmology is warning consumers that the nonprescription lenses could do serious damage to your eyes.   Selling such lenses without a prescription is actually illegal,Dangerous because they could cause corneal abrasions (scratches on the cornea, which covers the iris and pupil) and ulcers on the eye, which can then lead to infection (keratitis).         If this happens, the AAO warns that corneal transplants and other eye surgeries might become necessary to prevent blindness. It all could have been avoided if these patients just took a little extra time to obtain a prescription and only wore FDA-approved lenses.Contact lenses should only be worn if they are FDA-approved and prescribed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Be sure to have a dress rehearsal, becoming comfortable in the costume before the event will insure the best performance.

BPA Solidifies Rule Changes to Reflect Changing Media Landscape

first_img• Paid combination sales and/or bundled subscriptions for print and digital.• Paid sponsored digital and/or tablet mobile subscriptions.• Paid circulation with digital as a promotional incentive.For non-paid circulation magazines with digital circulations, the recipient must authenticate the digital subscription through the device and access the magazine or publication once per every six-month reporting period.For digital delivery with non-requestors, the BPA Board amended a rule to allow media owners to count the digital subscription, from one copy, as long as the non-requesting subscriber is given the ability to opt-out.In addition to digital edition reporting, the BPA Board eliminated the continuous service requirement. It deemed that the continuous/non-continuous circulation rule was outdated because of the many media channels, multiple messaging opportunities and unlimited frequencies within a media brand to reinforce advertising messages.While the BPA Board may have axed the continuous service requirement, it reaffirmed reporting shared media channels, but determined it requires better disclosure. The BPA Board voted to require the disclosure comment, “shared media channels (XYZ website)—serving both ______ and ________,” everywhere shared data of any type, not just websites, is reported.When it comes to brand subscription sale offers, BPA members will now be required to report the full amount collected for an offer as the value of the subscription. Members reporting average annual order prices will now disclose the number of subscriptions sold with multiple channel brand offers, when applicable.The BPA Board also approved all recommended changes relating to pre-populated data. Media owners and BPA members, the agency says, wish to utilize subscriber information from any channel to pre-populate magazine subscription solicitations. The rules have been amended to allow the use of third-party sources—like association list rosters, business information providers and directories—to pre-populate information to make subscribing an efficient as possible.In another change, the BPA Board ruled that site licenses could be reported as separate media channels on the BPA Brand Report, but not as qualified digital copies on the publication circulation statements. Additionally, as more media owners migrate to brand reporting and expand statement sizes to report more data, the Board changed the rule surrounding qualification forms on statements to no longer require them due to the availability of these qualification forms online.

To provide clarity to its members, auditing agency BPA Worldwide has solidified several rule amendments that are scheduled to take effect immediately.In May 2012, the BPA Board allowed the reporting of digital copies served through applications as qualified circulation. At the time, it was determined that through authentication via an access code tied to subscriber registration or information, media owners had the ability to identify and quantify end-users, thus enabling publishers to report this as qualified circulation.As of the group’s December 2012 meeting, however, the BPA Board amended rules for digital copies served through apps and mobile devices. When it comes to digital subscriptions that are purchased through tablet or mobile platforms, digital circulation will be reported from copy one and for the full term of the subscription. However, the digital subscription must be authenticated through the device or app to report digital copies when sold as:last_img read more
