first_img In the current political climate, it serves as an epiphany. As a glimmer of hope. As a hammer to break up conformity.Yes, that is a sad commentary upon the state of our discourse, but sometimes you need to celebrate the small victories. So when David Gellatly, chairman of the Clark County Republican Party, channels his inner Ronald Reagan and says, “The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally, not a 20 percent traitor,” you take note — and not solely because he pulled off the rare accomplishment of accurately quoting a historical figure.Gellatly was speaking about a controversy surrounding conservative commentator Tomi Lahren, a 24-year-old rising star of the right wing who has garnered a massive following through social media and through segments on Glenn Beck’s conservative platform, The Blaze. Like all notable political commentators these days, Lahren has used incendiary partisan speech as the currency to purchase her fame.She once, for example, said of young black men being shot by police: “The term unarmed black man may be literally accurate, but it doesn’t tell the whole story in most cases. In a number of cases, if the victim ended up being unarmed, it was certainly not for a lack of trying.” Which on the scale of racist dog whistles rates about a C8. Ah, who are we kidding? It’s not even a dog whistle; it’s a trumpet blast.Lahren has generated many fans and just as many detractors, many of whom try to dismiss her as “white power Barbie” — which is just as sexist as some of her comments are racist.Room for dissentAnyway, Lahren has been tabbed as the keynote speaker at this summer’s Lincoln Day Dinner — an annual gathering and fundraiser for the local Republican Party. So it is no surprise that her recent comment about being pro-choice has caused many conservatives to clutch their pearls. Greg Jayne, Opinion page editorlast_img read more

first_imgIn a very ironic turn of events, English commentator Martin Tyler will not narrate the match between Woking and Watford, because he’s Woking’s assistant coach.Martin Tyler is not only one of England’s most known commentators, but he also has another job as assistant coach to Woking.And the lowest-ranked club left in the FA Cup, a club that plays in the National League North, will host English Premier League side Watford in the Third Round of the FA Cup.“One of the first things I did after I came out of the Etihad was phone Dowse to see how the training went,” he explained to The Mirror.“I was privileged, I was watching what many of you probably think is the game of the season, and now we’ve got the game of a lifetime for Woking.”What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“I have two parallel lives – one you all know about and one you don’t know about that’s been going on for 12 or 13 years,” he added.“But now, these ­parallel worlds do collide and I can’t wait.”“I did the Everton v Watford game, which involved doing across to NBC in the States, and the first question was, ‘Are you scouting or are you commentating?’,” he tried to explain.“And on Boxing Day, we were here kicking off at 1 pm and then I was working at Watford v Chelsea in the evening. We haven’t got a clue what the Watford team will be, but at least I will know where they play and one or two strengths or weaknesses.”last_img read more

first_imgArsenal legend Ian Wright fears that Manchester United’s new-found form could have big consequences for his old club in their pursuit of a top-four finishThis season’s Premier League has seen Liverpool and Manchester City beginning to pull clear of the rest of the teams and turning the title battle into a two-horse race.Tottenham look fairly comfortable in a respectable third-place at the moment, while Chelsea’s hold of fourth-place and the final Champions League spot has been cut down to three points from Arsenal and United.The Gunners got themselves back into the battle for a top-four spot by beating Chelsea 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium last Saturday to end a poor run of just one win in their previous four league games.But United’s upturn in form under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sensational with the Red Devils level with Arsenal in fifth-place on the back of seven successive wins, six of which came in the league.“I think you have to look Manchester United, their emergence. They’re looking to take someone’s spot from the top four,”  Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“You look at, yes Arsenal, you see what happened at West Ham and then all of a sudden a whole different Arsenal turns up against Chelsea.“You see Chelsea, we don’t know what Chelsea are getting at the minute. You see Spurs with the injuries and you’ve got Man United just shifting gears.“I think Arsenal, they’ve got to play as they did against Chelsea. That was much better, the intensity and the closing down. They’ve got to play like that.“But I think Man United are the big worry for anybody who’s trying to get in the top four – Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea. Man United are a big worry.”Arsenal will take on United in a FA Cup fourth-round game on Friday at the Emirates with kick-off set for at 20:55 (CET).last_img read more

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp2 APRIL 2015 | GENEVA – New data on the harm caused by foodborne illnesses underscore the global threats posed by unsafe foods, and the need for coordinated, cross-border action across the entire food supply chain, according to WHO, which next week is dedicating its annual World Health Day to the issue of food safety.World Health Day will be celebrated on 7 April, with WHO highlighting the challenges and opportunities associated with food safety under the slogan “From farm to plate, make food safe.”“Food production has been industrialized and its trade and distribution have been globalized,” says WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan. “These changes introduce multiple new opportunities for food to become contaminated with harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemicals.”Dr Chan adds: “A local food safety problem can rapidly become an international emergency. Investigation of an outbreak of foodborne disease is vastly more complicated when a single plate or package of food contains ingredients from multiple countries.”Unsafe food can contain harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances, and cause more than 200 diseases – ranging from diarrhoea to cancers. Examples of unsafe food include undercooked foods of animal origin, fruits and vegetables contaminated with faeces, and shellfish containing marine biotoxins.Today, WHO is issuing the first findings from what is a broader ongoing analysis of the global burden of foodborne diseases. The full results of this research, being undertaken by WHO’s Foodborne Disease Burden Epidemiology Reference Group (FERG), are expected to be released in October 2015.Some important results are related to enteric infections caused by viruses, bacteria and protozoa that enter the body by ingestion of contaminated food. The initial FERG figures, from 2010, show that:there were an estimated 582 million cases of 22 different foodborne enteric diseases and 351 000 associated deaths;the enteric disease agents responsible for most deaths were Salmonella Typhi(52 000 deaths), enteropathogenic E. coli (37 000) and norovirus (35 000);the African region recorded the highest disease burden for enteric foodborne disease, followed by South-East Asia;over 40% people suffering from enteric diseases caused by contaminated food were children aged under 5 years.Unsafe food also poses major economic risks, especially in a globalized world. Germany’s 2011 E.coli outbreak reportedly caused US$ 1.3 billion in losses for farmers and industries and US$ 236 million in emergency aid payments to 22 European Union Member States.Efforts to prevent such emergencies can be strengthened, however, through development of robust food safety systems that drive collective government and public action to safeguard against chemical or microbial contamination of food. Global and national level measures can be taken, including using international platforms, like the joint WHO-FAO International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN), to ensure effective and rapid communication during food safety emergencies.At the consumer end of the food supply chain, the public plays important roles in promoting food safety, from practising safe food hygiene and learning how to take care when cooking specific foods that may be hazardous (like raw chicken), to reading the labels when buying and preparing food. The WHO Five Keys to Safer Food explain the basic principles that each individual should know all over the world to prevent foodborne diseases.“It often takes a crisis for the collective consciousness on food safety to be stirred and any serious response to be taken,” says Dr Kazuaki Miyagishima, Director of WHO’s Department of Food Safety and Zoonoses. “The impacts on public health and economies can be great. A sustainable response, therefore, is needed that ensures standards, checks and networks are in place to protect against food safety risks.”WHO is working to ensure access to adequate, safe, nutritious food for everyone. The Organization supports countries to prevent, detect and respond to foodborne disease outbreaks—in line with the Codex Alimentarius, a collection of international food standards, guidelines and codes of practice covering all the main foods.Food safety is a cross-cutting issue and shared responsibility that requires participation of non-public health sectors (i.e. agriculture, trade and commerce, environment, tourism) and support of major international and regional agencies and organizations active in the fields of food, emergency aid, and education.

It would be very difficult to expand the hotel when we are having the difficulties that we are having today accessing not only the local labour force but the required work permits that we need.”This is not an uncommon cry, though it is an unpopular one… but Stewart pointed out that in many other jurisdictions, they are able to fill their resorts almost completely with indigenous peoples; he said this is the case for resorts in countries like Jamaica, St Lucia and The Bahamas. “The question to ask is not the number of permits; the question is what would you need the work permits for. You have French restaurants here, you have Italian restaurants here – the Executive Chefs of those restaurants the authenticity or international product we deliver. Nobody can take away the Turks Islander ability to deal with conch and the fish that you guys prepare in your country; you can’t take away the authenticity of a French chef, of an Italian chef, of a Japanese chef in those specialty restaurants. If you look at the track record of our organization, the leadership in St Lucia – 98% of that business is run by St. Lucians, three General Managers are St Lucian’s because the labour force is available. You come home to Jamaica, it is the same thing so the specialty skills that are taken up in there. In The Bahamas, in Nassau we are given 10% work permits for the hotel itself, the hotel in the Bahamas runs 96% Bahamian.”Stewart said TCI labour laws are antiquated, but said Sandals Resorts International is encouraged by the government’s moves to modernise them. “…Mechanics! We have been working very closely with the Government and we are encouraged by what we have been seeing. Up until this point, the hotel has been operating with what I would describe as outdated labour protocols; the labour protocols that we operate today are the same labour protocols we came here and saw in the 1990s, but yet the world has changed and the business has become substantially bigger from 68 to 1950 employees.”Turks and Caicos Islanders make up 54% of the workers at the 770 room resort.

first_imgReal Madrid left-back Marcelo recently made a stunning revelation about his future suggesting he will leave this summer if the club wants him to.Marcelo, 30, has enjoyed a decorated career with Los Blancos having won 20 trophies including four Champions Leagues over more than a decade at the Bernabeu.But has fallen down the pecking order with coach Santi Solari preferring youth team graduate Sergio Reguilon at left-back.The Brazil international has been regularly linked with a move to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus. And he recently opened up about a possible exit.“If I am on the list of players [Madrid] want to sell, then they can pay me up and all is sorted,” Marcelo said via ESPN.“I trust in myself, in my work, but if a day comes when Real Madrid do not want me, I’ll go. I will be sad, but I’ll go. But I am sure I will not be kicked out.”Rumours are rife Ronaldo is trying to engineer the move to Juve, but Marcelo played down the prospect when asked again about the possibility of a move to Turin.Marcelo on when Cristiano told him he was leaving: “F*ck, we were training for the Champions League Final and he told me, ‘I’m leaving!’ Juve is a spectacular club with a great history but I have a contract with Real Madrid and I love being at this club.” [Esporte Interactivo] pic.twitter.com/7JxrwTtexJGerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…— SB (@Realmadridplace) February 11, 2019“I have seen mock-ups [of me] with the Juventus jersey, and they are a spectacular team,” he said. “But I am at Real Madrid, I have a contract here.”Marcelo has been under scrutiny for his below-par performances at the club, something he attributed to injuries.“The level I have been showing is difficult to always maintain,” he said. “I am a little below that level at the moment, but my career has been like that, some little dips, and unfortunately this season I had three injuries in two months. I went through a difficult period in my football and within the club.“But that phase is over now, I need to play to get back to my usual form and confidence. But I feel good now, physically good, I am training strongly. I need to play to get back my confidence, but physically I am good.”Solari is expected to keep faith with Reguilon for Wednesday’s Champions League round of 16 first leg at Ajax.last_img read more

In a rare decision for the customer, the California Public Utility Commission voted against the electric company. After all, equipment owned by SDG&E was responsible for sparking the so-called Witch Fire.The Witch Fire killed two people, destroyed 1,600 homes and scorched 200 thousand acres of land. At the time, the Santa Ana wind was blowing at hurricane force. Since SDG&E failed to trim trees in the backcountry, they were found responsible for causing the fire. Something they still deny.While this is a big victory for the ratepayer, it could be short-lived. In response, Lee Schavrien, SDG&E’s senior vice president and chief regulatory officer, said the CPUC made the wrong decision, which the utility will seek to overturn.SDG&E strongly disagrees with today’s decision. The CPUC got it wrong. The 2007 wildfires were a natural disaster fueled by extreme conditions including the worst Santa Ana wind event this region has ever seen, combined with high heat, low humidity and hurricane-force winds as high as 92 mph. Experts from Cal Fire and the County Office of Emergency Services described the weather as ‘unprecedented [in] magnitude,’ and ‘wind conditions being the worst they had ever seen in recent memory.’“This decision is not supported by the evidence and is not consistent with the determination made by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). FERC conducted its own inquiry and found SDG&E acted reasonably and approved the FERC-jurisdictional portion of the wildfire cost request. We find it difficult to understand how federal regulators understood the law and applied it appropriately, while the CPUC adopted a flawed interpretation.“The decision wrongly concludes that the applicability of inverse condemnation by California courts to privately owned public utilities is irrelevant. Under inverse condemnation, a utility is strictly liable, regardless of fault or foreseeability, if its facilities are involved in an ignition. Courts apply inverse condemnation to utilities on the grounds that utilities can spread the costs through rates, but this decision has failed to recognize or acknowledge the role inverse condemnation played in the incurrence of the costs and has failed to allow SDG&E to spread the costs as the courts envisioned.The Public Utility Commission was designed to help the public, in cases like this. More often than not they rule in favor of the corporate giants.  Former San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre is leading the charge for the consumer. He’s also the lead attorney in the lawsuit against the San Onofre Nuclear Plant decision. After a secret, cloak and dagger meeting at a hotel in Warsaw, Poland, the CPUC approved the San Onofre deal. A $3.3 billion decision, where the customer is stuck with the tab, even though the electric company was completely at fault for the shut down of the nuclear plant.Both of these cases have shined a light on the cozy relationship between regulators and the companies they are supposed to regulate.
