It features front and rear-facing cameras, and will have access to an applications store.Toshiba’s tablet will be competitively priced versus the iPad, which starts at $499, although the company declined to be more specific. Jeff Barney, general manager of digital products for Toshiba America, made it clear that the tablet is only the company’s first.“We are going to embrace this category, and we are looking to develop a family of tablets,” he said.Toshiba will show off the tablet this week at the Consumer Electronics Show, an annual trade show held in Las Vegas.With roughly five per cent of the global PC market, Toshiba is one of a host of companies attempting to steal a piece of the emerging tablet market from Apple. whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Atlanta announces slate of 5 nominees for 10th bishop

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group By ENS staffPosted Feb 13, 2012 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service] Five priests have been nominated to stand for election to become the 10th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta.They are:the Rev. George F. Adamik,58, rector, St. Paul’s Church, Cary, North Carolina (Diocese of North Carolina),the Rev. Michael A. Bird, 44, rector, Christ Church, Bronxville, New York (Diocese of New York),the Very Rev. Samuel G. Candler, 55, dean, Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, Georgia (Diocese of Atlanta),the Rev. Canon James H. Pritchett, 55, canon to the ordinary, Diocese of Western North Carolina andthe Very Rev. Robert C. Wright, 48, rector, St. Paul’s Church, Atlanta, Georgia (Diocese of Atlanta).The Feb. 13 announcement opens a month-long period during which members of the diocese may petition to add additional names to the ballot. (Information about the petition process is here.)“Today we look with excitement to the presentation of candidates for our next bishop,” said the Rev. Timothy Graham, president of the Standing Committee, in a press release. “I express profound gratitude for the careful and comprehensive work of the nominating committee. This committee, made up of clergy and lay representatives from across our diocese, has given us a fine slate of diverse, talented and qualified candidates.”Robin Mills Schreiber, chair of the Nominating Committee, said, “This slate is the result of many months of hard work, careful discernment and prayer. It has been a profound privilege and pleasure for me to be involved in this process. Our committee was comprised of many amazing individuals who worked uncomplainingly to see that we have the best slate possible to present to the diocese.”The person elected will succeed Bishop J. Neil Alexander, who was elected in 2001. At the time of his election, Alexander was a professor at the University of the South School of Theology and was priest in charge of St. Agnes’ Church in Cowan, Tennessee. Upon his resignation as diocesan bishop he will become professor of liturgics and head the Department for Anglican Studies at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta.A booklet with more information about the candidates, including answers to essay questions posed by the nominating committee, will be published later this week on the Diocese of Atlanta’s website.If there are petition candidates who are approved by the Standing Committee, names and similar information will be added to the booklet, according to the release.All candidates will come to the Diocese of Atlanta for five public gatherings during the week of May 13. The election of the 10th bishop of Atlanta is scheduled for June 2 at the Cathedral of St. Philip.Because the election falls within 120 days of the start of the July 4-12 meeting of the Episcopal Church’s General Convention, that body must consent to the bishop-elect’s ordination.The diocese has a website here devoted to the bishop search and transition.

Slam dunk for Palestine

first_imgWW photo: Anne PrudenProtesters, including many from the Jewish community, voiced support for Palestine outside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Oct. 7, when the Israeli basketball team Maccabi Tel Aviv was there to challenge the Brooklyn Nets.Previously, on Aug. 11, a large multinational force of people had protested Zionism at the same venue because its namesake, Barclays Bank, profits from arms sales to Israel. These forces returned on Oct. 7 to chant to those attending the evening game, “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! The IDF [Israel Defense Forces] has got to go!” and “Palestine — slam dunk! Stop the occupation!”Fliers distributed by activists with Jewish Voice for Peace explained their protest stating that “a basketball game should not be used as a context for paying tribute to an army and soldiers who have been involved in war crimes.” The flier also quoted former National Basketball Association player Etan Thomas: “It sends the wrong message, especially coming off the heels of the slaughter of more than 2,000 Palestinians last month. Friends of IDF, at their VIP celebration at the Barclays Center prior to the game, will ‘honor’ twelve wounded soldiers from the recent Gaza conflict. Are they also going to honor the hundreds of innocent Palestinian civilians — mostly women and children — who were massacred?”Later there was a struggle when Palestinian flags were raised at the game — and so many cheers when the Brooklyn Nets beat the Israeli team!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Former Conservation Chiefs Agree with Principles of Crop Insurance Compromise

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Former Conservation Chiefs Agree with Principles of Crop Insurance Compromise Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 8, 2013 Former conservation chiefs have sent a letter that follows the same principles of the compromise reached by several conservation, environmental, crop insurance and agricultural organizations to link conservation compliance and crop insurance premium assistance. The letter does not – however – endorse the agreement reached by the groups. As you take steps to modernize our farm safety net – the former conservation chiefs wrote – we urge you to make sure that compliance provisions cover all income support, including eligibility for crop and revenue insurance premium subsidies. The letter also expresses hope Congress will provide incentives to lower the cost of crop insurance to producers who use USDA-approved conservation practices. But to ensure the widest participation possible – they believe crop insurance should continue to be available to all producers regardless of income. The former conservation chiefs say doing so will benefit farmers, the environment and all Americans going forward.Bruce Knight is among those who signed the letter to endorse a link between conservation compliance and subsidized crop insurance. He says the letter was coordinated by the Soil and Water Conservation Society.center_img SHARE Previous articleE15 Now Available in WisconsinNext articleNovozymes Applauds Rural Energy Investment Act Gary Truitt Former Conservation Chiefs Agree with Principles of Crop Insurance Compromise SHARElast_img read more

Horned Frogs’ Alamo Bowl performance against Stanford will reveal its character

first_imgLinkedin Patterson and the Horned Frogs look forward to the match-up against the nation’s best running back.“If you have a good football team, they don’t want to play against average,” Patterson said. “They didn’t come and play all year to play against average. They want to play against the best, win or lose. You want to play against the Bryce Loves of the world.”TCU faces Bryce Love and the Stanford Cardinal Dec. 28 in the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.

Collier From Baker to Bryce: Horned Frog defense prepares to face consecutive Heisman finalistsAs TCU’s battle-tested defense prepares for the Stanford Cardinal in the Valero Alamo Bowl, they prepare for a unique challenge: multiple match-ups against Heisman finalists.The Horned Frog defense will face Stanford running back and Heisman runner-up Bryce Love Thursday night, one game away from their second matchup with the Heisman Trophy winner and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.TCU’s previous contest, a loss to the Oklahoma Sooners, featured a clinic led by the superstar. He completed 15 of his 23 passes, good for 243 yards and four touchdowns. Mayfield also contributed an average of 10.8 yards per rush, utilizing his speed six times for 65 yards.Now, the Horned Frogs must flip the script and focus on Love, a stat sheet stuffer. Love ranks first nationally in total rushing yards, rushing yards per contest and rushing yards per attempt. Additionally, Love has the most 100-yard rushing games this season and boasts 23 rushes of at least 30 yards, a statistic no player has achieved the past two seasons. He averages 43.8 yards per scoring play.“Stanford has a mentality that they want to go run the football,” TCU defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow said. “They’re a very physical football team. You have to match their physicalness to have a chance to slow them down.”Stanford running back Bryce Love runs for a touchdown against California during the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, in Stanford, Calif. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)Plagued by an ankle injury for most of the season, Love’s production has been limited over the past few games. Stanford head coach David Shaw remains optimistic about Love’s availability for Thursday’s contest against the Horned Frogs.“He’s just trying to get his ankle as healthy as it can be so he can come and play with his teammates tomorrow night,” Shaw said.Since his injury, Love has averaged 5.745 yards per rush, better than 120 of all 130 FBS programs.TCU head coach Gary Patterson sarcastically responded, aware that a Heisman finalist with a month of rest could prove to be fatal for the Horned Frogs.“I’m really excited about that,” Patterson said. “For him to have four weeks of rest, a healthy Bryce Love- holy-moly.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history On their best behaviorThe Horned Frogs return to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl, and Patterson said the team will use the same curfew and bed check procedures as two years ago when quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested and sent home following a bar fight.“It was tight last time,” Patterson said. “We had bed check. He was in bed check. We knew what we were supposed to do. You can’t control knuckleheads.”Losing their star signal-caller had a crippling effect on the Horned Frogs who fell behind the Oregon Ducks 31-0 in the Alamo Bowl two years ago.“We obviously had some adversity,” Patterson said of that week’s events. “Kind of took the wind out of our sails. We kind of regrouped, and it came up to be an experience people will remember the rest of their lives.”Patterson said the same penalty is in place for a similar violation this year as he hopes to prevent another incident and his players have received the message.“It’s kind of tempting,” senior wide receiver John Diarse said. “A lot of places you can go and have a drink or two if you’d like, but Coach P has been on us for the past month about being smart about what you do and to enjoy the week while being smart in our decision-making.TCU’s current quarterback uses competition to avoid the issue of nightlife leading up to the Alamo Bowl.“Two years ago that happened and then we go to the Liberty Bowl and everyone said you can’t be going out and doing all that,” Hill said. “They told me you’re not allowed to go to that bar, which is fine because I’ve been beating Shawn Robinson in NBA 2K, he talks a lot of mess, but he can’t hang.”Black or Purple?At the Alamo Bowl two years ago, TCU head coach Gary Patterson wore a black shirt as his Horned Frogs fell behind 31-0 at halftime to the Oregon Ducks. He then changed into a purple shirt at halftime after saying “black wasn’t working.”After tying the biggest bowl comeback ever with TCU’s 47-41 triple-overtime victory over Oregon, Patterson reflected simply on the wardrobe alteration in his postgame interview; “Purple works,” he said.This time around, fans are curious as to what shirt Patterson will don Thursday against Stanford. For now, the TCU head coach is still weighing his options.“I haven’t decided yet, probably because they’ve been on me so hard, our colors are purple and white, I’m starting to lean towards the purple a little bit,” Patterson said.“Lengthy” Stanford defense “creates challenges” for TCUThe Horned Frogs’ offensive unit will face a daunting task against Stanford’s athletic and physical defensive squad in the Alamo Bowl.“They’re a well-coached unit,” TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie said. “They’re very big, they’re physical and you can tell they’re a group that doesn’t give you anything easy. It’s a big challenge for us.”They also limit the big-play, something the Horned Frogs uptempo offense thrives on.“They don’t allow you to make any big ‘home-run’ plays,” senior running back Kyle Hicks said. “They try to keep everything in front of them. They’re a sound football team.”The Stanford Cardinal is one of only 10 teams to allow an average of fewer than 25 points per game for four straight seasons. This season, the Cardinal have only surrendered an average of 21.5 points per contest, good for second in the Pac-12 and 30th nationally.Senior wide receiver John Diarse is excited about the challenging matchup but realizes that he and his teammates must take the Cardinal seriously.“They’re physical from their front four to their back seven,” Diarse said. “As a secondary, they play really well together. Their corners are very long, can be physical and can make tackles. We have to match them physically and use our speed in ways they aren’t used to.”TCU wide receiver John Diarse breaks a tackle against Oklahoma. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoDiarse mentioned some miscues in Stanford’s defense that he noticed while watching film and believes that the Horned Frogs can exploit them to get the victory.“I think they have some wrinkles that can put us over the top,” Diarse said. “As long as we execute our routine plays like we have all season, I believe that could give us the victory.”Junior safety Justin Reid ranks eighth nationally and first in the Pac-12 with five interceptions on the season. The junior also averages 7.5 tackles per game. Hicks expects him to make his presence felt.“I expect him to fly around for them like he has all year,” Hicks said. “He’s made a lot of big plays for them this season. He’s very smart and has a really good football IQ, he’s a great leader on the field.” Twitter Facebook Facebook Garrett Podell printThe Horned Frogs were left out of the New Year’s Six despite finishing as the runner-up in the Big 12. Instead, they were sent to San Antonio for the second time in three years to play in the Alamo Bowl for a Dec. 28 matchup against Stanford following its 41-17 loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game.Head Coach Gary Patterson said bowl season reveals the character of a football team.TCU wide receiver John Diarse evades a tackling against Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“Here’s what you’ll find out — the team that wants it the most will win it,” Patterson said. “Ninety percent of the time, when they have more reason to win, they’ll be the team that wins it. That’s what I told them right off the bat.”The Horned Frog coach will have to hope this season’s TCU team resembles the makeup of his 2014 and 2015 teams, not last year’s team that couldn’t quite find the finish line against Georgia in the Liberty Bowl. This season, the Horned Frogs are a veteran-laden team, recognizing 35 seniors in its regular-season finale against Baylor. Quarterback Kenny Hill is among those who are eager to go out “the right way.”“The Big 12 Championship Game leaves a bad taste in your mouth, and lucky for us, we’ve got one more, that’s the best way to get rid of it,” Hill said. “We need to win this. It just comes down to playing well and executing the way we can to come out with a ‘W’ because I’m not trying to go out my senior year with a loss.”TCU quarterback Kenny Hill address the media at a press conference Tuesday in San Antonio. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoEven though it’s not in the New Year’s Six, the Alamo Bowl features two top-15 teams who were the runner-ups of their respective conferences, but Patterson desires to finish in the top 10 for the third time in four seasons and the sixth time in the last 10 seasons. “A lot of people would be satisfied — you’re one of the top 15 teams in the nation,” he said. “That’s not where we’re trying to get as a program. At least I’m not.”Return of the Jet?Sophomore running back Darius Anderson will be a game-time decision for the Alamo Bowl as TCU takes as much time as it can to make a decision about whether to use its leading rusher against Stanford.Patterson wants to leave San Antonio as an Alamo Bowl Champion once again, but he’s also balancing his leading rusher’s health for next season when he will return as the team’s most experienced back after the graduation of senior Kyle Hicks. “You can’t accomplish anymore in this season, so you got to make sure he is ready to go and there’s no chance of putting him in harm’s way,” Patterson said.Anderson rushed for 768 yards and eight touchdowns, both team highs, in 10 games. He left in the second quarter of the Nov. 11 game at Oklahoma with a leg injury, having scored TCU’s first touchdown with a 13-yard run on his first carry of the game.Anderson’s health has indicated a return to action is plausible.

Community first responders need funds to save lives

They cover an area from the Strand hotel to the Greenhills hotel and the surrounding residential estates.One of their volunteers, Noel Kerley, said that the main reason the group was set up was because they could see a need for it in the locality with an ageing population.“Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in Ireland, accounting for 33 per cent of all deaths and early response is essential in helping to save some of those lives,” Mr Kerley added.Community First Responders are dispatched to cardiac arrests, adult chest pain (suspected heart attack), stroke and choking emergencies in their communities. Most responder groups have organised themselves to be “on call 24/7” to respond to these emergencies.“Because all of our ‘on call’ volunteers live locally, we generally arrive at the emergency call location before the paramedics and we carry out CPR and other life-saving measures until such time as the paramedics arrive,” Mr Kerley said.The normal time for an ambulance to arrive at the emergency address is 20 minutes, but it may take longer – depending on other emergency situations they are dealing with. This time delay may be life-threatening for some emergencies.While the Ennis Road CFR group is supported by the HSE and the National Ambulance Service, they do not get any funding to buy their own equipment, including AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) or to provide accredited training and purchase training equipment.This is why they are running a major fundraising day on this Thursday, December 20 in Dunnes Stores at the Jetland Shopping Centre on the Ennis Road.“We are appealing to the people living in the area to support our fundraising next Thursday because we need this money to help us to buy this essential equipment and also to provide ongoing accredited training for our volunteers,” Mr Kerley explained.by Mary [email protected] Print Limerick on Covid watch list Twitter WhatsAppcenter_img TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Funerals for the 11 synagogue-shooting victims begin as Trump heads to Pittsburgh

first_imgJeff Swensen/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) — The first of the funerals for the 11 worshippers killed in a Pittsburgh synagogue massacre will be held Tuesday as President Donald Trump heads to the city.Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz and brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal were among those gunned down by a shooter inside the house of worship Saturday.Rabinowitz’s friends and family are set to gather at his funeral Tuesday morning, while the Rosenthal brothers will be honored at a joint service Tuesday afternoon.Rabinowitz, 66, was killed when he ran toward gunfire in the synagogue to try to help victims, according to his nephew, Avishai Ostrin.“In addition to being the president of the congregation, he was a doctor, a healer … when he heard shots he ran outside to try and see if anyone was hurt and needed a doctor. That was Uncle Jerry, that’s just what he did,” Ostrin wrote on Facebook.b“Jerry was above all one of the kindest physicians and human beings in our community,” the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center said in a statement. The hospital network said it “cannot even begin to express the sadness and grief we feel over the loss of Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz.”Slain bothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal, 54, never missed a service and were always at the synagogue because it was a place they felt the most safe, fellow congregant Scott Levin told ABC News.The two brothers were developmentally disabled.“Cecil and David had a love for life and for those around them,” according to a statement from ACHIEVA, a local organization which provides support for people with disabilities.“Cecil’s laugh was infectious. David was so kind and had such a gentle spirit,” Chris Schopf, Vice President of ACHIEVA Residential Supports, said in the statement. “Together, they looked out for one another. They were inseparable.
