N Korea test-fires new tactical guided weapon

first_imgSeoul: North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness.

Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations. In a statement issued under the name of Kwon Jong Gun, director general of the American Affairs Department at the Foreign Ministry, North Korea accused Pompeo of “talking nonsense” and misrepresenting Kim’s comments. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsDuring a speech at Texas A&M on Monday, Pompeo said Kim promised to denuclearize during his first summit with President Donald Trump and that U.S. officials were working with the North Koreans to “chart a path forward so we can get there.” “He (Kim) said he wanted it done by the end of the year,” Pompeo said. “I’d love to see that done sooner.” The North Korean statement said Pompeo was “misrepresenting the meaning of our requirement” for the negotiations to be finalized by the year’s end, and referred to his “talented skill of fabricating stories.” It said Pompeo’s continued participation in the negotiations would ensure that the talks become “entangled” and called for a different counterpart who is “more careful and mature in communicating with us.” In a speech at his rubber-stamp parliament last week, Kim said he is open to a third summit with Trump, but only if the United States changes its stance on sanctions enforcement and pressure by the end of the year. Kim observed the unspecified weapon being fired Wednesday by the Academy of Defense Science, the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said. Kim was reported to have said “the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army.” The Associated Press could not independently verify North Korea’s claim, and it wasn’t immediately clear what had been tested. A major ballistic missile test would jeopardize the diplomatic talks meant to provide the North with concessions in return for disarmament. A South Korean analyst said that details in the North’s media report indicate it could have been a new type of cruise missile. Another possible clue: one of the lower level officials mentioned in the North’s report on the test Pak Jong Chon is known as an artillery official. Some in Seoul worry that the North will turn back to actions seen as provocative by outsiders as a way to force Washington to drop its hard-line negotiating stance and grant the North’s demand for a removal of crushing international sanctions. A string of increasingly powerful weapons tests in 2017 and Trump’s response of “fire and fury” had many fearing war before the North shifted to diplomacy.last_img

Top UN envoy urges calm as Afghanistan awaits election results

“I say to candidates, campaigners, voters, and media, that you must respect this process. This is a critical part of it. Respect also means demonstrating patience,” Kai Eide said during a visit to the Commission’s headquarters in Kabul. Mr. Eide, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), met with some of the commissioners and saw how the ECC deals with the complaints filed by candidates and voters. The Commission said it has so far received 790 complaints from across the country following the 20 August polls, including 54 classified as “Priority-A,” which, if proved, could have an impact on the result. Mr. Eide said he was concerned about every irregularity, but emphasized that the ECC would do all it can to address and correct them. Forty-one presidential candidates, including two women, as well as over 3,000 candidates competing for provincial council seats, took part in last week’s polls, the first to be organized by the Afghan Independent Election Commission (IEC). The elections were hailed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council, both of whom congratulated the Afghan people for exercising their right to vote. 24 August 2009The top United Nations envoy for Afghanistan today urged patience and calm as the country’s Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) responds to the complaints that have been received following last week’s historic presidential and provincial council polls.

Rapper Flo Rida has pulled out of his guest appearance at the “Miss USA” pageant later this month, part of the continued fallout over pageant owner Donald Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrants during his presidential campaign announcement. A representative of the Platinum-selling rapper confirmed that Flo Rida won’t be performing at the July 12 pageant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. (Photo by John Salangsang/Invision/AP, File) by Lynn Elber, The Associated Press Posted Jul 1, 2015 9:09 am MDT Last Updated Jul 2, 2015 at 12:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Macy’s department store chain joined an ongoing exodus from association with Donald Trump and New Mexico’s governor and New York City’s mayor slammed him over his comments on Mexican immigrants.Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico, the nation’s only Latina governor and a rising star in the Republican party, added her voice Wednesday to criticism of the GOP presidential hopeful, denouncing his comments as “horrible.”Trump’s presidential campaign announcement contained his assertion that some Mexican immigrants to the United States bring drugs and crime, and some are rapists.New York City officials said Wednesday they are reviewing the city’s contracts with Trump in light of his comments, and Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a statement calling them “disgusting and offensive,” adding that “this hateful language has no place in our city.”The Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park opened in April in the Bronx and the Trump Organization has a 20-year concession agreement to operate the facility.Representatives for Trump did not respond Wednesday to an email seeking comment on the city’s review.Trump’s team was struggling to hold the Miss USA pageant together following defections by hosts, performers, judges and the two TV networks that were scheduled to broadcast the event on July 12. Trump owns the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.The pageant issued a statement earlier this week that “we are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on.”Rapper Flo Rida had been the highest-profile performer scheduled for Miss USA in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and his representative confirmed Wednesday that he would not perform. Country singer Craig Wayne Boyd, winner of “The Voice” last year, and pop singer Natalie La Rose, whose single “Somebody” hit the Billboard Top Ten this year, also dropped out. There were no more announced performers.Emmitt Smith, the former Dallas Cowboys running back who was a judge for Miss USA, cited Trump’s statement and NBC’s decision in backing out and sent his best wishes to the competitors who had been preparing for the pageant.The Macy’s chain said in a statement that it’s “disappointed and distressed” by Trump’s remarks and will end its relationship with him. Macy’s has carried a Donald Trump menswear line since 2004, including $70 button-down shirts and $65 striped ties. Most items were heavily discounted on Macy’s website on Wednesday.“We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form,” the company said. “We welcome all customers, and respect for the dignity of all people is a cornerstone of our culture.”The move comes after an outcry on social media, including online petitions, for Macy’s to drop the line. NBC, TV Company Ora TV and Mexican TV network Televisa also have cut ties to Trump.Trump said in a statement that he had decided to end his relationship with Macy’s because of pressure put upon them by outside sources. He said he was never happy that the ties and shirts were made in China, and if he were to do another product line in the future, he would insist they were American-made.“Both Macy’s and NBC totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than professional agitators,” Trump said.The city of Bogota, Colombia, also was heard from this week. In protest of Trump’s comments, its tourism board said it was withdrawing support for a campaign it had helped organize to host the next Miss Universe pageant.It had decided to organize the bid with private businesses as a result of Colombian Paulina Vega’s win in the 2014 Miss Universe pageant. Colombia had been in the running with China.HGTV “Property Brothers” star Jonathan Scott was also one of the pageant’s judges but backed out, too, saying on Facebook that he could not support Trump’s views.“We are all on this big rock together,” he said, “and I choose love.”Besides Smith and HGTV’s Scott, Miss USA listed country singer Jessie James Decker, E! News anchor Terrence Jenkins and TV host and former Miss Universe winner Zuleyka Rivera as pageant judges in a news release issued last month. Of that quintet, only Decker’s name was listed as a judge by Miss USA on its website Wednesday. A show spokeswoman said she had no information about judges or performers.The pageant lost both of its co-hosts, Cheryl Burke of “Dancing With the Stars” and MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Jeannie Mai, who hosted a show on the Style Network, was listed as a show host.Last week, the hosts of the Univision simulcast, Roselyn Sanchez and Cristian de la Fuente, said they wouldn’t take part in the Spanish-language telecast.Trump’s campaign comments struck many Latinos as insensitive, and Univision’s decision last week to back out of televising Miss USA and break off its business ties with Trump led to a cascade of others following suit. Trump responded by suing Univision on Tuesday.____Associated Press writers David Bauder, Michael Balsamo, Mesfin Fekadu and Mae Anderson in New York and Russell Contreras in Albuquerque, New Mexico, contributed to this report.

Ahead of sustainability summit Global Goals will light up UN Secretariat building

“Starting at 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m., we expect to illuminate the building with [images] relating to the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as images related to the 70th anniversary of the United Nations,” Under-Secretary-General for Public Information Cristina Gallach told reporters at a press conference, noting that filmmaker Richard Curtis produced the project. The projections were developed in collaboration with the Global Goals campaign and 59 Productions. The filmed footage will be edited into a four-minute film to be shown at the Global Citizen Festival on 26 September and broadcast around the world as part of international coverage of the event. The Global Goals campaign – funded by Mr. Curtis and launched at UN Headquarters earlier this month – aims to reach 7 billion people in seven days with news of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.“We think it’s going to be a moment to raise awareness, so [its] the right thing to do just a few days before the summit,” she added.More than 150 world leaders are expected at UN Headquarters to formally adopt at a three-day summit that begins Friday 25 September, an ambitious new sustainable development agenda. It will serve as the launch pad for action by the international community and by national governments to promote shared prosperity and well-being for all over the next 15 years.Agreed by the 193 Member States of the UN, the new framework, Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, consists of a Declaration, 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, a section on means of implementation and renewed global partnership, and a framework for review and follow-up.Also speaking at the press conference was Amina J. Mohammed, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Post-2015 Development Planning, who described the agreement as “really meaningful.”“It’s universal so it applies to everyone,” she explained. “We will no longer have a North-South conversation about what the North is doing for the South, but what we are doing for each other. Clearly anything that happens anywhere in this world has that fallout in many other places – from the global financial crisis to conflict and migration, we feel it everywhere – to natural disasters and climate change.”The agenda builds on the successful outcome of the Conference on Financing for Development that recently concluded in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and is expected to positively affect the negotiations on a new meaningful and universal climate agreement in Paris this December.Its adoption on Friday will be preceded by an address to the General Assembly by Pope Francis. Shortly after he departs, a special video will be projected in the Hall.Performances are also expected by international pop stars and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Shakira and Angélique Kidjo. Malala Yousafzai will then share a message alongside 193 young people representatives from all UN Member States. The summit will then officially open.Once the goals are adopted, Ms. Gallach said, every goal will be read out by a group of different people – female presidents, young children, celebrities and other individuals.

Mens Volleyball Ohio State loses third straight against No 1 Long Beach

Sophomore Kyle Skinner gets ready to serve the ball against George Mason at the game on Jan. 18 at St. John Arena in Columbus. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Senior Reporter.After losing two straight matches without winning a set, having to face the No. 1 team in the country on their home court is not the best way to end a losing streak. The struggling Buckeyes (4-8) were able to keep sets close early, but couldn’t gain enough momentum to get back in the match as No.1 Long Beach State (12-0) cruised to a victory in three sets, 25-19, 25-18, 25-21. The Buckeyes took their first lead of the match in the third set after an attack error by Long Beach State gave them a 4-3 lead. Back-to-back aces by junior libero Chase Moothart bookended a three-point run that brought the Buckeyes over the 20-point threshold for the first time in the match. But a kill by senior outside hitter TJ DeFalco and an Ohio State service error closed out the third set, 25-21, handing the Buckeyes their third-consecutive straight-set loss. Ohio State was unable to establish a rhythm on offense in large part due to errors. The Buckeyes committed 33 errors on the night, 19 service and 14 attack, while the Beach had only 24, 16 service and 8 attack. Though the Buckeyes tallied 30 kills on the night, the 14 errors on 61 attacks limited them to a .250 hitting percentage. Freshman libero Parker Mikesch had 26 assists and two digs as he continues his campaign as the Buckeyes full-time setter while senior Sanil Thomas is injured. Freshman outside hitter Sean Ryan provided 10 kills for Ohio State, helping to fill in as a point finisher for the Buckeyes in the midst of sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes’ absence due to injury. Ryan got off to a hot start in the first set with two kills, helping the Buckeyes keep pace with the Beach. But a kill by senior opposite hitter Kyle Ensing and an attack error by Ryan gave Long Beach State a 4-2 lead, which they would stretch to as many as seven points en route to a 25-19 first set victory. Ensing and DeFalco combined for 21 kills, five digs, and an ace, leading the team to a .475 hitting percentage. Both teams had their share of success from the service stripe, as the Buckeyes totalled three and the Beach came up with five. After a close start to the second set, Long Beach used four Buckeye errors and an ace by redshirt senior middle blocker Nick Amado for five straight-points, taking a 16-9 lead. Though Ryan contributed five kills and sophomore libero Luke Meidel added an ace, Long Beach State used kills by Ensing and senior setter Josh Tuaniga to close out the set, 25-18. Ohio State returns to conference play against Lindenwood at 8 p.m. on Friday in Saint Charles, Missouri.

United snatch draw at the death as Zlatan scores from the spot

first_imgUnited snatch draw at the death as Zlatan scores from the spot He hot a penalty in the 94th minute to rescue a draw at Old Trafford. Tuesday 4 Apr 2017, 10:50 PM Short URL Apr 4th 2017, 10:50 PM Image: Martin Rickett Share Tweet Email 20,722 Views By The42 Team Image: Martin Rickett Johnson: I always knew I could be number one… once Tiger stopped playingFighting for fairness, Ireland stand together on a landmark day for women’s football ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC HIT a stoppage-time penalty as Manchester United managed a draw at Old Trafford against Everton.Phil Jagielka put the visitors ahead in the first half, before Ibrahimovic had a goal disallowed after the interval as he was deemed offside.Late into added time Ashley William’s blocked Luke Shaw’s shot with his arm, and was sent off before Ibrahimovic made no mistake in finding the back of the net.It prevented Everton from leapfrogging United into fifth place in the table, with Manchester City four points better off in fourth before they visit leaders Chelsea on Wednesday.Ibrahimovic was back in the side following a three-game domestic suspension and had a header incorrectly ruled out for offside in the 71st minute, when it appeared United would follow Saturday’s 0-0 draw against West Brom with another frustrating home stalemate.Williams made a timely early challenge to thwart Ibrahimovic before Jesse Lingard – preferred to Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial in a wide attacking role by Mourinho – sliced wide from 20 yards in the 13th minute.Ronald Koeman added some of the experience his defeated Merseyside derby line-up lacked in the form of Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry and the former England midfielder’s lofted pass was chested down by the Belgium winger in the 21st minute, who drew a save from David De Gea at his near post.Everton led from the resulting corner as Jagielka outmuscled Marcos Rojo to prod Williams’ looping header through De Gea’s legs. United were almost level after half an hour, when Joel Robles acrobatically pushed out Daley Blind’s curling free-kick and Ander Herrera clattered the rebound against the crossbar from a tight angle.A rasping drive from Herrera forced Robles to tip behind in the 39th minute and Jagielka concluded a fine individual half in stoppage time with an immaculate challenge to halt Marcus Rashford after Ibrahimovic’s flick released him into the area.Mourinho sent on Pogba in place of Blind at the interval and the world’s most expensive player was quickly into the thick of the action. After Barry was booked for cynically barging over Rashford in full flight, Ashley Young – now operating at left-back after the half-time reshuffle – whipped in a free-kick that flicked off Romelu Lukaku and Pogba guided a header against the crossbar.Young was booked for a rash foul on Miralles and his robust approach appeared to result in an injury, meaning Shaw entered the fray to cheers from the Old Trafford faithful.Ibrahmovic thought he had United back on terms with 19 minutes to play as Robles failed to keep his header out but was spared as a marginal offside call fell in the visitors’ favour.Robles did not convince entirely under increasingly direct United attacks, and Fellaini fired over under pressure from Barry when the goalkeeper’s punch failed to clear 73rd-minute danger.Luke Shaw was then the unlikely hero for Jose Mourinho.Four days on from being labelled United’s fourth-choice at left-back and having his professionalism questioned by Mourinho, Shaw was introduced to play.The England left-back drilled goalwards in stoppage time, with Ashley Williams sent off for handling the shot on the goalline before Zlatan Ibrahimovic converted from the penalty spot.The42 is on Instagram!

Smart tax questions for small businesses

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram One of the great challenges we face in life generally is that we don’t know what we don’t know. This is no more so than in business where there exist a number of tax breaks, subsidies and benefits that are often not well publicised. As a small business owner, knowledge of what is available can be of enormous assistance to the effective running and growth of your small business. Qualifying Small Business Entities have access to approximately a dozen concessions across Capital Gains Tax, Income Tax, GST and Fringe Benefits Tax. The principal qualification is an aggregate turnover of less than $2 million; so that’s where you start. If the annual sales in your business are under the threshold and you’re not aware of the concessions available, then you should be. If you’re looking at purchasing a business or selling yours then you REALLY should be. Messing up the tax or GST side of a business purchase or sale can cost real money. I wonder, though, how many people there are working really hard to grow their businesses that are missing out on tax concessions that they are rightly entitled to but are completely unaware of. I’m not the first person to say that you make your money on assets when you buy them and not necessarily when you sell them. By that I mean it’s difficult to make a gain when you pay too much for something. That something could be a property, a share in a company, a work of art or a business and I firmly believe it. Since the introduction of the Small Business Entity regime and its predecessor you can also save money when you sell if you do it right and that saving is on Capital Gains Tax and the number can be large. A gain on sale can be exempt from tax if you’ve owned the business for 15 years. If that’s not the case you may qualify for the 50 per cent active asset exemption. That can be in addition to the normal 50 per cent exemption if the asset has been held for greater than a year and in combination may mean you only pay tax on 25 per cent of the gain.Small Business entities can be eligible to deduct certain expenses immediately. They’re entitled to a deduction for prepaid expenses when larger business isn’t. They pay GST quarterly rather than monthly and have much simpler depreciation rules than their larger counterparts. You should seek advice from a qualified tax accountant, or visit a Yellow Brick Road branch where we can arrange to have someone explain it in more detail. * Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.

Mount St Helens guru retires

first_imgLONGVIEW — Peter Frenzen has worked at Mount St. Helens for 35 years, yet he still lights up talking about the mountain.“I’ve been many places in the world, and maybe I’m biased, but maybe the coolest places I’ve ever been, anywhere, are around Mount St. Helens,” he said. “It never ceases to amaze me. I pinch myself practically every time I’m out there.”Frenzen, 60, who’s served as the staff scientist at the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument since its creation in 1982, is retiring at the end of September. For decades, he’s been the public face of the 110,000-acre area, helping to coordinate research, document it for future generations, advocating for its protection and conveying its findings to the public. It’s a job that left him no real time for any research of his own.“I liked doing research when I was doing it, but I personally find the promoting of the understanding of what people are learning to be more satisfying to me,” he said. “The impact of having people understand the world that we live in is not a tranquil place (is crucial).”He has also appeared in many documentaries about Mount St. Helens, speaking about the complex but amazing evolution of natural and geological processes. Today, he’s a bit wistful when he watches some of those older productions.“It’s actually kind of disconcerting to watch yourself age,” Frenzen said, laughing. “People will (watch these old documentaries) and say, ‘You were so young!’ ”last_img

From The Border to Houston Los Vaqueros Rio Grande Ride To The

first_img X 00:00 /03:25 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Share – / 5What happens on the Texas border with Mexico has a way of making the news these days. But sometimes, those who travel the roads from the Rio Grande Valley up to Houston are making the trip for symbolic reasons. Reasons of heritage and history, and these people make the trip on a horse.I’m talking with 81-year-old Larry Ramirez when some of his friends pull into an abandoned parking lot off Highway 59, their wagons and horses moving a little slower than the cars flying by behind us.“It’s a good ride, it’s a long ride,” Ramirez says. “A long, hard ride.”He and his team are headed to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Ramirez founded this trail ride team, one of 13 teams converging on Houston from all over Texas. His group started their journey at the border. A lifelong Houstonian, Ramirez drove big rigs for about two decades, but he wouldn’t call that his life’s work.“I’ve done everything a man could possibly do,” he says.Ramirez founded “Los Vaqueros Rio Grande” 45 years ago for one simple reason.“Because there were no Hispanic rides when I started.”“I approached the stock show and I said well, ‘how come there are no Hispanic rides coming in?’ And they said ‘well nobody has approached us,’ so I approached them and they granted me a permit.”As to why he figured the ride should start from the border and travel the farthest distance of all the rodeo trail rides?“Ah, it was just a wild idea” he says. “I just thought ‘why not start from Mexico?’”Ramirez wanted this ride to honor his Hispanic heritage. He doesn’t know much about his grandparents or family further back, he says he was just too busy working most his life to investigate the family tree. So this is, in a way, his chance to explore that history.One of Ramirez’s riding buddies is Gary Foster. He braves the Texas highways on 19th century wagons out of a fascination with old customs and old technology. He shows me around his ride – a “Melbourne Model 88.” Foster says he believes it was built somewhere around the middle of 1890.Explaining the art of a horse harness, he says he keeps this wagon as authentic as possible to the time it comes from – no rubber tires, all original undercarriage – and he drives mules, not horses, like the old-timers used to. Foster’s taken the wagon on longer rides through Texas ranches, and he says there is more to it than just the gear.“When you spend six months traveling around like that, it’s a camaraderie that is unusual in this day and time, when a lot of people in the cities don’t even know their next door neighbor’s name.”Trail riders are a family he says, and family is what’s keeping “Los Vaqueros” alive.In his old age, Larry Ramirez is handing this ride off to his son David. Some parts of the ride have changed: decades ago the team started the trail from Mexico, but with tighter border controls through the years, it got too complicated and expensive to bring horses across the river. Still, the younger Ramirez says the team will be around for decades to come. “Oh it’ll last,” he says. “I mean somebody’s always going to be trail riding. I raised my kids up in this, and they’re going to continue to trail ride, it’s in their blood.”The elder Ramirez says he’s proud of what he’s accomplished with the riding team.“My sons are taking over the ride, it seems like they’re going to keep it alive after I’m gone, course I won’t know that,” he says with a hearty laugh.After a day of rest, the Ramirez family and their team will saddle up for Houston ahead of Saturday’s downtown parade.last_img

Disable What do you want to do with in Microsoft Edge

first_imgDisable “What do you want to do with” in Microsoft Edge by Martin Brinkmann on February 10, 2018 in Internet – 8 commentsMicrosoft’s Edge web browser displays a “what do you want to do with” prompt when you download files in the browser by default. The prompt lists options to open, save or cancel the download, and another option to save the download to another location.You may also get options to run the download if it is an executable file. While that is certainly useful in some situations, say you download a new program that you want to install on your system, it may be inconvenient at other times.The prompt saves you some clicks in the best case but the main advantage that it provides is that it puts users in control when it comes to downloads.Drive by download attacks don’t really work if a prompt intercepts the download. While it may not offer 100% protection against all download related attacks, it will block some.While it is usually a good idea to keep the prompt for that reason alone, some users may want to disable it. You may have no need for the prompt if all you want to do is save downloads to the local device. Then there is the issue of Edge only displaying one prompt at a time. The prompt is shown for only one of the downloads. If you are fast enough, you may be able to select an option before the next download starts but that may be inconvenient in itself.Microsoft Edge users may disable the “What do you want to do with” prompt. This can be done in the following way:Open Microsoft Edge if the browser is not open already.Click on the menu icon, and select Settings from the context menu that opens when you do.Scroll down to Advanced Settings and click on “View Advanced Settings”.Locate “Ask me what to do with each download” under Downloads, and toggle the preference to off.Edge downloads all files automatically when you disable the option.  You set the default download directory under downloads as well.Note that this won’t prevent the browser from displaying the “finished downloading” prompt which displays options to open or run the download, open the folder it was downloaded to, or open the download history of the web browser.

first_imgAs you can see, the Cardinals are allowing only 11.4 yards per reception to opposing wideouts — tied for the lowest mark in the division — and the 1,566 yards they’ve given up is also a respectable number. But the numbers are really only put into context when combined.

The Cardinals have allowed three of the 23 100-yard performances by tight ends in the league this season. And three tight ends, Vernon Davis of San Francisco, Jared Cook of St. Louis and New Orleans’ Jimmy Graham have the posted the three highest receiving yardage totals the Cards have allowed this year.

Most safeties are 5-10 or 5-11 and most of these tight ends are 6-5 or 6-6, so you can throw the ball away from them.”I decided to do a little research on the matter — and that research was startling.In addition to the 14 touchdowns, opposing tight ends have caught 79 balls for 1,042 yards against the Cardinals. Their division opponents haven’t sustained nearly as much damage against largely the same group of players.Tight End Production vs. NFC West Teams Top Stories But the numbers seem to support Arians’ assertion that the cornerbacks of the Cardinals have matched up well with wideouts, who in the grand scheme, are much more dangerous on a week-in, week-out basis. Seattle Seahawks5660610.840 Arizona Cardinals2162,60812.1225 Fans of the Arizona Cardinals were channeling their inner-Yogi Berra Sunday, because when it came to the Big Red defense covering tight ends, it was deja vu all over again.In other words, the Cardinals, who have the seventh-ranked defense in the National Football League, struggled to contain Philadelphia tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek in a 24-21 loss. The duo had nine catches for 97 yards and most importantly, three touchdowns. The final piece of the puzzle is, of course, rushing defense. Arizona ranks fourth in the league (first in NFC West) in defending the run, allowing just 83.3 yards per contest. So it stands to reason that opponents would throw more against them — and they have. Opponents throw on Arizona an average of 39.9 times per game — the fourth-highest number in the league. And the Cardinals are tied for fourth in the league in net yards per pass attempt against at just 4.9.The bottom line is, yes, opposing tight ends have blistered the Cardinals’ defense in 2013.

Promised funds for TB sanatorium fail to materialise

first_imgBy Alexia EvripidouWITH EBOLA headlining global newspapers daily, attention to other serious infectious diseases run the risk of being eclipsed. Yet we don’t need to look past our back yards to discover that since 2004, cases of one of the top five infectious killers – Tuberculosis (TB) – has increased worryingly here in Cyprus.Concerned about another TB epidemic, doctors and health officials last year presented to parliament a plan to upgrade the old, but-still-operational sanatorium in Kyperounda in the mountains. Parliament agreed with the proposal, yet a year on nothing has happened.Although only on a small scale, numbers of TB cases have risen over the last ten years, from near zero at the turn of this century, to 33 reported cases in 2007 rising to 58 cases in 2012. In 2007, 28 were of foreign origin, which rose to 31 in 2012. At one point the statistics showed that 83 per cent of the sick were foreigners who had come to Cyprus, mainly from Bulgaria, Romania and the Philippines. All were referred to the specialist TB sanatorium in Kyperounda Hospital for a minimum of two months treatment.Unfortunately, TB has advanced. The World Health Organisation states that “TB has evolved to be more challenging to cure, as evidenced by increasing cases of drug-resistant TB strains now present in almost all countries surveyed worldwide”. This, with the increase in TB cases, has stretched the hospital’s already limited resources.Doctor George Georgiades, a specialist in respiratory and critical care medicine at Nicosia General Hospital, believes that “Cyprus is a platform in the Mediterranean where we can accept people from everywhere around the world. We do not know what diseases might be arriving the next day.”Although 2013 saw the first drop in TB cases – likely because immigrants have been leaving Cyprus since the financial crisis – Georgiades explained that figures from one year could not determine whether or not a disease had been genuinely dealt with. The mean result over several years’ statistics needs to be determined in order to assess progress of elimination of the disease.“Therefore precautionary measures need to be put into place to eliminate this disease and deal with other diseases that might enter the country,” Georgiades stressed.TB has been an ever-present threat to mankind. Throughout history, it has come under many names, for instance, the ‘Great White Plague’, as it emaciates its victims, turning them a deathly shade of white. Also known as consumption, it killed Jane Austen, four of the five Bronte sisters, Anton Chekhov and George Orwell.Cyprus is no stranger to the airborne TB, which consumed nearly 300 lives a year during the 19th and early 20th centuries. At the time poverty predominated and large families lived together in small dwellings, therefore helping the disease to spread. Up until the turn of the 21st century, with the improvement of food, health, finances, environment and modern medicine in Cyprus, TB had been nearly eradicated.Photo display of former staff at kyperounda sanatoriumThe sanatorium at Kyperounda had played a huge role in what had appeared to be the successful fight against TB. Opening in 1940, it operated solely to treat TB patients; it was a well respected sanatorium with 100 beds.In the late 20th century with TB apparently beaten, the sanatorium became the regional hospital serving nearly 20,000 people in 25 communities.But when TB resurged with a stronger strain in 2004, Kyperounda hospital, famous for its clean air with health giving properties, was turned to for help. Yet it now has just 16 beds dedicated to TB patients. At times, 3-4 patients are forced to share an overcrowded room, which goes against World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines recommending one person per room. The sanatorium also needs negative pressure rooms, which are vital in combating and constraining the disease from spreading through the air.As a result, medical experts, and health officials and MPs came together in September 2013, (including Georgiades, Kyperounda’s Hospital director Dr Andreas Kafkalias, the then Health Minister Petros Petrides, AKEL MP Adamos Adamou and DIKO MP Athena Kyriakidou), to address the issues at hand. A thorough investigation was carried out at the hospital and it was decided by all parties involved, that a larger and better equipped sanatorium was a necessity.The existing three storey stone building, previously the nurses sleeping quarters on the hospital premises, was both empty and perfect for renovation. Transforming it into a high tech sanatorium, with negative pressure rooms, complying with WHO requirements would be cheaper and more suitable than building a new building. This proposal, requiring only one million euros, was drafted and presented to Parliament.“Even though our hospital services are high by European standards, we still always need to improve to meet these drug resistant strains. Parliament accepted the proposal and was keen to help,” Georgiades says. “However, it seems that one million was too much and project did not proceed.”With murmurs that there was no money due to the financial crisis, Georgiades and the doctors took it upon themselves to try and raise the money through private donations but were not able to do so.The deputy director of Medical and Public Health Services Dr Elizabeth Constantinou informed the Sunday Mail of the ministry’s desire for a new sanatorium by saying that “the ministry of health requested commitment of funds in their budgets to meet this need in 2012 and 2013. The request was not approved by the ministry of finance.” However, senior economic officer at the finance ministry, Maria Tsiakka, denied her department was to blame for the delay. “We did not say no to the funding. Every April, the Council of Ministers approves a ceiling of funding for each ministry, determined by governmental priorities. It is then up to each ministry to prioritise their own needs,” she explained.The rooms where today’s TB patients are forced to share, sometimes as many as four in a room, due to lack of facilitiesSo what next? Georgiades is still appealing to private donators and hopes that the government will see true to their word, giving them the funds to renovate the sanatorium.“TB here may not be an epidemic again but we can have the sanatorium ready to prevent other diseases that might come up. Having the right facilities and therefore medicines helps eliminate further spread of disease. Even if we eliminated TB, the sanatorium could also be used as a respiratory unit, which is highly needed,” Georgiades said. “The mountainous area of Kyperounda is suitable for these problems. We have such a huge problem of asthma, allergies and obstructive pulmonary disease here in Cyprus. When we look at it this way, it is correct to have this sanatorium.”He uses as examples renovated sanatoriums around the world, which are used to treat many other serous ailments as well as TB.“As everyone has acknowledged the need for this sanatorium, why not go ahead with it? Why wait till the final minute and when the problems arise to discover that we are not equipped to handle them. We need to be prepared.”  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
