World Cup 2011: A stern England test for minnows Ireland

first_imgIreland ‘s World Cup meeting with England at the M Chinnswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday is not just a chance to upset a traditional rival and improve their chances of a quarterfinal appearance, but also a chance to take another step toward full Test status.Beating England in Bangalore would strengthen Ireland’s case with the International Cricket Council to be added to the list of 10 Test nations. Even after their 2007 World Cup win over Pakistan, 2009 World T20 win over Bangladesh, Ireland’s best players still have to switch allegiance to England to play at Test level.”We want to get to a stage where we become a full member ourselves and are part of the Future Tours Program,” Ireland captain William Porterfield said on Tuesday. “We don’t want to have players making that (allegiance) call. We want to be in a position where we can contract 12-15 full-time Irish cricketers.”Dublin-born Eoin Morgan would have been in England’s squad but he broke his finger on tour in Australia, while Ed Joyce appeared for England at the last World Cup and had to be granted special dispensation by the ICC to play for his country of birth at this World Cup.Although Porterfield is keen for future generations of Irish cricketers to stick with their home country, he said the appearance of Joyce and Morgan at test level had given Irish cricket more exposure.”Players playing for England has boosted Irish cricket in a roundabout way,” Porterfield said. “Eoin Morgan is still getting publicity for Ireland. But in an ideal scenario we want a future of more full-timers back home playing more games and hopefully we’ll be full member ourselves.”Spinner George Dockrell is the latest player to reportedly attract interest from England management. Dockrell, who made his one-day debut in the Caribbean in April 2010, took two for 23 in last week’s 27-run loss to Bangladesh and will be in the team to face England on Wednesday.Meanwhile, Stuart Broad could be in contention a place in the England team on Wednesday after returning to training having recovered from a stomach upset.Ajmal Shahzad replaced Broad for England’s dramatic tie with India after his teammate was confined to bed and unable to eat. But the pair could now be competing for the same spot after Broad bowled in the nets on Tuesday.Fellow bowler Tim Bresnan said: “I’m just glad I’m not picking the side because Ajjy bowled really well.” Broad took 2 for 65 in England’s opening win over the Netherlands, while Shahzad has experience of the Bangalore wicket after playing India.Shahzad failed to take a wicket but hit a crucial six in the last over to help England reach 338 for 8.Bresnan is also hoping to see spearhead James Anderson hit peak form sooner than later in conditions where there is little margin for error. “Jimmy will be just fine with his performance. He can bounce back,” he said.advertisementlast_img read more

Karius blunders mean Liverpool career should be over

first_imgReal Madrid v Liverpool Karius needs all support in the world after Madrid clangers but Liverpool career should be over Mark Doyle Deputy Features Editor Last updated 1 year ago 15:30 5/27/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(17) Loris Karius Real Madrid Liverpool Getty Images Real Madrid v Liverpool UEFA Champions League Cristiano Ronaldo Mohamed Salah Jürgen Klopp Zinédine Zidane Real Madrid Liverpool Opinion After his mistakes in the 3-1 loss to Madrid, the German’s psychological condition is the primary concern but he should no longer be the Reds’ No.1 On the eve of the Champions League final, Liverpool legend Bruce Grobbelaar declared, “Loris Karius will become the best value for money goalkeeper in the Premier League in the years to come.”He cost £4 million from Mainz and he is going to be immense.”One very much doubts it now. Not after this. Not after two of the worst goalkeeping mistakes ever seen at the highest level. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now As Karius lay on the turf at the full-time whistle, his shirt pulled over his head, it was impossible not to wonder how on earth he will recover from deciding the biggest game of his life in Real Madrid’s favour. He effectively threw the ball into his own net twice, first via the outstretched boot of Karim Benzema, the second time by somehow failing to deal with Gareth Bale’s speculative shot from distance.As former Germany No.1 Oliver Kahn told ZDF , “I’m lost of words. I can’t remember to have experienced something more brutal from a goalkeeping point of view than in this final. An evening like this can destroy a career.”Certainly, this was a goalkeeping calamity on an unprecedented scale, on the club game’s grandest stage. Brazil goalkeeper Moacir Barbosa was blamed for his nation’s shock loss to Uruguay in the deciding game at the 1950 World Cup in Rio, as he had arguably been beaten too easily by Alcides Ghiggia’s winning goal. But it was nothing compared to Karius’ clangers in Kiev. The Brazilian press needed a scapegoat for the national embarrassment and they turned on Barbosa. It was a pain that he carried with him for the rest of his days. Selecao forward Zizinho even blamed the press for his death some 50 years later.The sporting world will hopefully be kinder to Karius as it was difficult not to be moved by his attempts to apologise to Liverpool’s supporters for his two atrocious errors. But there was no denying that it was Karius – not two-goal hero Bale – who had proved the difference between the two sides. Loris Karius Frank Lampard PS“They’ve been done by two individual mistakes,” former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard told BT Sport . “The talking points will be the goalkeeper mistakes.”That is unavoidable. Karius’ errors were so bad, so basic, so inexplicably absurd, that they actually managed to overshadow one of the greatest final goals in football history, from Gareth Bale.  Frank Lampard said, “Those mistakes shouldn’t be happening in Champions League finals.” He wasn’t wrong. Such mistakes shouldn’t even be happening at Sunday League level. This was no way to lose.”On a human level you can feel sadness for Loris Karius,” Lampard added. “That’s with him for life now. The first one, which kind of changed the momentum of the game, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”It’s a horrible moment for him. he needs some big support from his team-mates now. He didn’t mean that but it’s cost them the game.”It was a harsh but fair appraisal. Even worse, while the manner of the mistakes was shocking, there was nothing remotely surprising about the fact that it was Karius who cost Liverpool a sixth European Cup.Loris Karius Real Madrid Liverpool UCLHis form, as Grobbelaar pointed out, has improved since the arrival of the aerially dominant Van Dijk at Anfield in January, and since being installed as Liverpool’s No.1 on a regular basis.But he has never instilled confidence in his defence, in his club’s supporters. He has always looked liable to make mistakes. Even Klopp knows this, even if he hasn’t admitted it publicly. Why else were Liverpool so enthusiastically pursuing Roma’s excellent goalkeeper, Alisson, only to be put off by the price?Unfortunately for the Reds, Klopp’s show of faith in Karius has now proven an incredibly costly error of judgement. The hope is that the 24-year-old gets the emotional and mental support he needs to recover from this shocking setback. He deserves sympathy. Sadly, though, he doesn’t deserve to be a starting goalkeeper for a side with Champions League aspirations. Liverpool want to win major trophies and that is impossible without a top-quality goalkeeper.That was proven beyond all doubt in the most traumatic and costly of circumstances in Kiev on Saturday night.Liverpool’s anthem is ‘ You’ll Never Walk Alone ’ and Karius will need the help of his team-mates, his coaches and his club’s fans to help him get through the coming days, weeks and months of what is likely to be the darkest period of his career. But the cold hard reality is that Karius is not good enough for Liverpool, and arguably never has been.

A Gustafsen Warrior in Exile The Story of OJ

first_imgThings were falling into place, the eagle bones were showing up, feathers were showing up.” “It could have been the Spirit himself.”– James PitawanakwatHe remembers it was sometime after 8:30 a.m. at the Burger King in New Westminster, British Columbia, when the stranger gave him the newspaper with a front page photograph of a masked warrior holding a stop sign girded with feathers.James “OJ” Pitawanakwat hadn’t slept that night. He was with the hangover crowd having a fast-food breakfast. His long hair a disheveled tangle like the life he was living.It was 1995 and the blockade trail was all dry grass in high summer. The rumble of the Canadian military machine and the report of Mohawk AK’s from the battle in the pines at Kanesatake five years earlier still echoed like distant thunder across the country.Lighting could strike anywhere.Pitawanakwat sat at the Burger King with last night’s liquor still on his breath with no thought beyond the greasy hash brown patty he was about to eat; no notion he would soon be thrust into the most violent confrontation in modern history between First Nations and the state.A confrontation that would nearly kill him and lead to a life of exile.And then the stranger appeared.“And an Indian man come walking by looking at me, I had my long hair, probably all scraggly from the night before, and he looked at me, ‘Hey you want a newspaper.” I said, ‘sure,’ and he plopped it in front of me,” said Pitawanakwat. “He was just walking by and he handed it to me and he kept on going. It could have been the Spirit himself.”He remembers it was the Vancouver Province newspaper and the photo was of a warrior at a blockade in Douglas Lake.“I looked at that and I looked at what I was doing to myself and I came to the realization that I have stop what I am doing here and look at what is going on in the province,” he said. “At that moment things started happening. The dominos were falling into place that would lead me up to Douglas Lake where I had seen the man holding that stop sign.”The trail would continue beyond, to Gustafsen Lake, and a battle over Sundance grounds in the province’s interior that would see Pitawanakwat blown up by an IED and throw him into a pitched gun battle against RCMP tactical teams firing from armoured personnel carriers driven by Canadian Forces personnel.77,000 rounds of gunfire would rip through the underbrush during the summer conflict, eclipsing the number of bullets fired during the Kanesatake crisis.But that was 20 years ago.A Life in Exile My father tried blaming my other uncle for shooting him and her …”Pitawanakwat was born on July 31, 1971, the youngest of 11 children.On October 30 of that year, his father Francis Eli Pitawanakwat, after a dance at the community hall in Wikwemikong, took his wife Mary Grace to the gravel pits and shot her dead with a bolt-action rifle. Francis Eli then turned the gun on himself in a failed suicide attempt. An uncle found Pitawanakwat’s mother’s body and the wounded Francis Eli.“My father tried blaming my other uncle for shooting him and her,” said Pitawanakwat. “After the second trial he pled-out for eight years manslaughter.”Pitawanakwat was raised by relatives with a different last name in Toronto and didn’t know this history until one day, when he was about 12-years-old, he was leafing through an encyclopedia at home when a newspaper clipping fluttered to the floor.“I reached over and picked it up and seen my family name on it, my last name and I read it and I started to ask questions and they said, ‘Yeah, we went to the trial and we heard what he did to your mother,” said Pitawanakwat. “I was raised not knowing, which was fine with me, I grew up happy.”Things began to darken for him around that same time period when he said he was molested by a Catholic priest. As he grew into his late teens he hooked up with the boyfriend of one of his sisters and entered the gang life. At first they used knives for the corner store stick-ups, then, with proceeds from the crimes, they bought pistols. They would steal cars for their getaways after hitting spots in places like Scarborough, York and Mississauga.“I was part of the crime wave in Toronto,” he said. “We started getting a little careless and started to get closer and closer to home.”Toronto police detectives from 14 Division, using security footage, identified him as a suspect. They picked him up and took him home where detectives showed the video to his foster parents who provided the positive identification.He was 19-years-old and sentenced to two years. He spent stints in a Guelph, Ontario, provincial jail before he was transferred to Collins Bay penitentiary and then to Millbrook where he said a mix up with his sentence led to a complaint filed with the ombudsman which led to his release.He ended up in Hamilton, Ontario, to be with a woman from his home community he developed a relationship with over letters and telephone calls while behind bars.After a miscarriage—which Pitawanakwat said was caused by Hamilton police brutality while responding to a noise complaint at his apartment—the couple had a baby girl.His father died on June 25, 1994, and was buried at the Wikwemikonsing cemetery in Kaboni on Manitoulin Island.Pitawanakwat never met his father, he denied a request to see him when he was 16, but he did manage to speak to Francis Eli on the telephone before he died.James Pitawanakwat, far right, with his 4 brothers on Manitoulin Island after the funeral of their father Eli. Photo courtesy of the family.“I did thank him for bringing me into this world before he departed,” said Pitawanakwat.Francis Eli and Mary Grace’s remaining 10 children, plus a daughter born to Francis Eli after the murder, gathered together for the first time at their father’s funeral. There are photographs of the day. One photograph is of the six sisters, the other of the five brothers.“We were never together at once and most of the family was there,” said Pitawanakwat. “It was a life changing moment…to be unified even in death.”Pitawanakwat’s sisters after the funeral of their father on Manitoulin Island. Photo courtesy of the family.Pitawanakwat returned to Hamilton and then he, his girlfriend, along with their new daughter, and a friend hopped the Greyhound for the West Coast.Vision in the Clouds He was driving in the pickup truck, an AK-47 and a hunting rifle inside, and Suniva Bronson, a non-First Nation activist from Alberta, in the passenger’s seat, on a water run when he hit an IED planted by the RCMP on the logging road. A YouTube video from a police eye-in-the-sky camera captured the moment of impact, the plume of smoke.Pitawanakwat’s dog Idaho was in the back and the video shows it scrambling from the truck only to be shot by an RCMP sniper.“It was blackness all around,” he said.Pitawanakwat and Bronson managed to escape through the haze of smoke. Pitawanakwat headed for the lake, cut his boots off midway through the water while bullets skipped around him. The other warriors were already on the other shore and once he reached them he was handed a weapon and the gunfight exploded.He said he still suffers bouts of PTSD from the IED strike. One of the strongest attacks hit him while he was in a holding cell in Kamloops, B.C. There was a radio on the wall playing the local commercial station. One morning, as he was emerging from sleep, one of the radio commercials played the sound of a helicopter.“I jumped up and leapt out of bed and I was standing in the middle of that cell and a full rush of adrenaline through me,” he said. “I was standing there, almost angry at where I was, but that was my first moment when I realized I had post-traumatic stress.”Then, later, it could be the backfire of a car, fireworks and even movie detonations that would trigger the emotions, causing his hands to shake and his mind to relive the gun battles, the explosion.“It will always be there,” he said.But it has faded slowly over time.Pitawanakwat said he is selective about who he tells his story to now. He said the story of his experience in Gustafsen Lake is what got him expelled from Baraga, Michigan, after he recounted it at a bar that was also the local watering hole for off-duty police officers. One word led to another about “Indians” and he ended up in a brawl. He was thrown into the local jail and then told to get out of town on the next bus.He planned to go to Lansing, Michigan, but chance encounters on the trip diverted his path and found him one snowy March day in 2004 at the Seven Generations cultural centre in Saginaw. He stayed for a sweat and never left.That first night, he spent it in the sweat lodge. The next morning, he walked into the cultural centre where breakfast was being made and told his story. He said he was then given work by the cultural centre and one of his first tasks was gathering wood for the fire to make maple syrup.There were the expected initiations, fights with the local young men testing his mettle during the pow wow and outside the bars. Eventually, he was accepted as a member of the community. He was married by the tribal chief under the pipe to Christina Keshick.Pitawanakwat is now invited to dance with the war veterans at pow wows because of his Gustafsen Lake experience.A longing for homeChip Neyom became good friends with Pitawanakwat after they randomly bumped into each other 10 years ago.“OJ is a warrior for sure. The type of guy who stands up for what he believes in,” said Neyom. “Most certainly, from his story, it’s the right thing to do, to stand up, stand your ground…sometimes we have to stand up and take arms, I guess.”Pitawanakwat’s younger sister Melissa Manitowabi also lives on the reservation and she moved here with her husband from Canada to be closer to her brother.James Pitawanakwat’s sister Melissa Manitowabi moved to the community to be closer to her brother.“We decided to stay because I saw how much he needed family,” said Manitowabi. “Everyone is back home and some can’t come over here either and he can’t go over there.”Manitowabi said Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould should pardon Pitawanakwat, who still has an active warrant out for his arrest in Canada, and let him come home.“He was just standing up for what he believes in and helping the people out there,” she said. “He did a fair amount of his time. He was a free man here and he should be considered that over there too…It’s time for him to come home to be with his family.”Pitawanakwat wants the right of return.“I have been living in exile, being here, away from my family, away from my traditional territories. Being away from where I grew up is a prison sentence itself. In essence, I have been sentenced for 20 years because of this sovereignty argument,” he said. “Since I have been here I have lost a brother and a sister, people wonder why I am crying at night, when I sit here crying…I do want to return to Canada, I do want to return to the forefront.”jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarrera Sitting in a cold trailer on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian reservation in Michigan, Pitawanakwat sands a piece of fossilized coral called Petoskey stone he retrieved from an area near a city by the same name.This type of ancient stone, spawned by the force of glaciers, is named after a 19th Century Odawa chief who grew wealthy from trading and settled about 200 kilometres north. He wants to mold the stone into the figure of a beaver and a clam.“This is the leftover of the coral reef that was deposited in the Petoskey area where my ancestors are from,” he said.The Saginaw Chippewa Indian reservation, an Anishinaabe community, is as close to home as Pitawanakwat can get. There are strong links between families here and in his home reserve of Wikwemikong First Nation on Manitoulin Island on the other side of the Canada-U.S. border that cuts through Lake Huron.Pitawanakwat has lived here since 2004.For nearly two decades Pitawanakwat has lived across the U.S. in places like, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Lincoln City, Oregon, where in June 2000, he was chased on his bicycle after going out for pizza, then tackled in a bramble of thorn bushes by U.S. Marshals executing an arrest warrant.Canadian authorities had been hunting for him since he slipped across the border before finishing the day parole portion of his sentence from his 1997 conviction on charges of mischief and possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace in relation to the 1995 Gustafsen Lake standoff.But the extradition request failed after a U.S. Federal Court judge in the District of Oregon ruled in November 2000 that Pitawanakwat’s actions during the standoff were “of a political character” and qualified for an exemption under the extradition treaty between Canada and the U.S.He was granted political asylum and began a life in exile.The Newspaper ClippingFrancis Eli Pitawanakwat in an undated photo. Photo courtesy of the family. Video: Rob Smith, APTN Investigates, reporting. He saw the vision of the explosion after he was cut down from the tree during the Sundance.The Gustafsen Lake standoff centred on land leased by the province to a rancher near 100 Mile House, B.C., that was used for Sundance ceremonies.The land, which was never surrendered, was reclaimed by the Ts’Peten Defenders in 1995 who refused to leave despite attempts by the rancher to evict them.The RCMP intervened, and, with support from the Canadian Forces, faced down the Ts’Peten Defenders, who numbered between 30 to 40 people.Things escalated in mid-August when Defenders spokesperson William “Wolverine” Jones Ignace said if the RCMP moved into the camp it would be “clearly war…We’re not going to go peaceful. Body bags or do a hell of a long stretch…Nobody is going to tell you to put your weapons down,” according to the court record.The RCMP and the Canadian Forces, working through Operation Wallaby, set up a base called Camp Zulu which included armoured personnel carriers, helicopters, a field hospital, communications centre, military assault weapons and a tactical unit of about 400 heavily armed militarized police.After several incidents, which saw tens of thousands of rounds exchanged between both sides, the Defenders’ camp surrendered by Sept. 17, 1995.There were 18 people, 13 men and five women, at the camp by the standoff’s end. All 18 were convicted by a jury following a 10-month trial.During the standoff Pitawanakwat smuggled assault weapons purchased in the U.S. across the border and into B.C. through bush trails by foot. A group would move across the border at night to pick up the weaponry, slinging the rifles over their shoulders for the trudge back north to the camp.It wasn’t all war, however.

He remembers the feel of the tension from the leather rope attached to the pegs and being lifted up into the air.“We start early in the morning when the sun comes up and you are dancing and praying when you feel the people in there and they are all dancing with you in unison and the harmony of eagle whistles and drums and you see your feet dancing,” said Pitawanakwat. “On the third day of the Sundance a few of my brothers and I were pierced from our back and were pulled up the tree and I was pulled up the tree and I was hanging from my back and we were dancing and it felt like I was up there for hours. They staked me to the ground and I was up there praying and that is when I felt people pulling me away from the tree…and that is what scared me…knowing there is something there that you can’t see.”He shouted to be cut down. A few moments later as he felt the blood still dripping down his back, he saw the clouds.“I seen a cloud in that state I was in, it unfolded before me at a faster rate, and I was like, ‘It’s an explosion.’ I told the elders, this is what I seen, I seen an explosion.”To this day, he believes the vision foreshadowed what would happen to him on Sept. 11, 1995.The IED Jorge BarreraAPTN National News  I was standing there, almost angry at where I was, but that was my first moment when I realized I had post-traumatic stress.”last_img read more

US unemployment claims slide by 14000 to 246000

by Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press Posted Feb 2, 2017 7:02 am MDT Last Updated Feb 2, 2017 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This Wednesday, March 30, 2016, photo, shows recruitment tables at a job fair in Pittsburgh. On Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, the Labor Department reports on the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits the week before. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) WASHINGTON – Fewer Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, another sign that U.S. workers are enjoying job security.THE NUMBERS: The Labor Department said Thursday that claims for jobless aid fell by 14,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 246,000. The less-volatile four-week average rose by 2,250 to 248,000. Overall, 2.06 million Americans are receiving unemployment benefits, down more than 8 per cent from a year ago.THE TAKEAWAY: Jobless claims are a proxy for layoffs. The low levels suggest that employers feel they need to hang on to their workers in a tight labour market. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, says “companies fear that they won’t be able to replace people who they let go… This isn’t going to change anytime soon, so we expect claims to remain close to their current level.” Weekly unemployment claims have now come in below 300,000 for 100 straight weeks, longest such streak since 1970.KEY DRIVES: The U.S. labour market is solid. The unemployment rate is 4.7 per cent, close to a nine-year low and to what economists consider full employment. Employers last year added 180,000 jobs a month, solid but down from a monthly average of 229,000 in 2015.The Labor Department releases its jobs report for January on Friday. Economists expect that the economy generated 175,000 new jobs last month and that unemployment remained at 4.7 per cent. US unemployment claims slide by 14,000 to 246,000 read more

At home with hacker Lauri Love and his parents Im a reverend

first_imgIn the early hours of Monday morning, as light snow fell on London, Rev Alexander Love and Sirkka Love woke to the news that their only daughter was in labour. Their night’s sleep had been fretful, though not because of the imminent arrival. Their youngest son, Lauri, was due to appear at the Royal Courts of Justice at 11am to hear if his appeal against extradition to the US was successful. “We were hoping for two deliveries in a day,” says Rev Love. “It’s what they call the magical symmetry of life.” For the past five years, the Loves had been fighting to keep Lauri in the UK and prevent his extradition to the US, where he has been accused of hacking into official computer systems, including…last_img

Top Cop appointment soon – Ramjattan

The other seven Assistant Commissioners interviewed for the post are Crime Chief Paul Williams; ACP-Operations Clifton Hicken; Force’s Finance Officer, Nigel Hoppie; A Division Commander (ag), Leslie James; substantive A Division Commander, Marlon Chapman, who is currently on leave;  B Division Commander, Lyndon Alves; and for the first time, a woman contender, the ACP-Administrate II, Maxine Graham.Once the new PSC members are sworn-in and a chairman is selected, the process will move forward in appointing a new Top Cop.On Monday last, the National Assembly approved the nominations of rtired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Paul Slowe; retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Clinton Conway; retired Woman Assistant Commissioner of Police, Vesta Adams, and retired Woman Assistant Commissioner of Police, Claire Jarvis, as new members of the PSC, which had expired since last September.However, prior to the approval, Opposition Members of Parliament had expressed concerns over the fact that there were no civilian nominees on the Commission.Meanwhile, the reconstitution of the PSC comes after there has been calls for the process to be fast-tracked, especially since there were no promotions of senior officers last year, which caused uneasiness amongst ranks.Before the life of the Commission had expired, President Granger in July 2017, had ordered that the body put the promotion of senior ranks on hold. He subsequently justified his decision and despite a court order stating that the Government had acted unconstitutionally, maintained he had had good cause for stopping the promotions.Last November, during a High Court ruling on the halting of promotion of personnel so listed, Chief Justice (acting) Roxane George established that the President did breach the Constitution when he issued a directive to halt promotions. read more

You Can Now Tweet Emoji At Google For Local Search Results

first_imgStay on target 50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation If you’re a big proponent of emojis, there’s a brand new trick on the rise. As it turns out, you can now tweet at Google with your favorite emoji and get local search results in return.To watch Google work its magic, tweet an emoji such as a hamburger or popcorn @Google and you’ll get a gif as well as a link to local search results. For example, send a hamburger emoji for a list of local burger joints. Tweet some popcorn for movie listings. It’s quite adorable.Mashable reports results for over 200 different emojis from Google, which appear to be a part of Google’s #KnowNearby program. You can even tweet the infamous peach, poop, eggplant and others for interesting responses. This means they all finally have a purpose beyond what we’ve all been using them for.Our Managing Editor tried it too!Google isn’t the first company to adopt communication via emoji, however. Just a year ago Domino’s Pizza tested out ordering via pizza emoji, where users could simply tweet a pizza emoji, and then would be contacted by Domino’s customer service to ensure there was actually a potential pizza order on request. Then the order would be completed. This might seem totally bizarre to you if you’re not typically someone to tweet in only emojis like so many of us.This will probably be something that we see a lot more of going forward, especially with the popularity of emojis and the convenience of tweeting one symbol. We can accomplish things like ordering pizza and or finding a movie. Domino’s was the first major entity in the restaurant world to utilize Twitter for ordering, and Google is popularizing it. So we’ll more than likely see this popping up in the future more and more. It’s an emoji future; we just live in it.last_img read more

Kimmich will captain club and country someday – Sammer

2020 Toyota Supra has BMW bones 50000 price tag

first_img 2020 Toyota Supra: A Japanese sports car legend returns Toyota Supra ends a two-decade hiatus at the 2019 Detroit… After what felt like 10,000 teasers and leaks, we finally have the official information about the 2020 Toyota Supra. Following a two-decade hiatus, Toyota’s iconic sports car is back, and it’s packing BMW bones. More From Roadshow Toyota repeated what it did with Subaru for the 86, working with BMW to make the new Supra a reality. It uses the same drivetrain and platform hardware as the 2019 Z4, but unlike the Subaru BRZ and 86 clones, the Supra has its own distinct look and performance tuning by Toyota’s Gazoo Racing motorsports division. In fact, Toyota says that after agreeing on the 97.2-inch wheelbase, width and A-pillar locations in mid-2014, the two sides went their separate ways and did their own things.Fittingly, BMW brought inline six-cylinder know-how to the collaboration, which is what powered all previous Supras. In the new car, a turbocharged 3.0-liter with 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque drives the rear wheels through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. It’ll hit 60 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.Enlarge ImageAt the Supra’s foundation is a lot of BMW DNA. Toyota What about a manual gearbox? Disappointingly, one won’t be available at launch, but Toyota engineers did say during the prototype drive that a three-pedal version is theoretically possible down the road. If you’re a hardcore enthusiast wanting a manual Supra, send your letter demanding one to Toyota now. Helping the 3,397-pound Supra handle are 50:50 distribution and lower center of gravity compared to the 86. The double-joint front strut and the multilink rear suspension features standard adaptive dampers, aluminum control arms which shave unsprung weight and Brembo four-piston front brake calipers. All Supras also get a torque vectoring rear differential and ride on staggered 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (255/35 front, 275/35 rear) wrapped around forged wheels.

Available paint choices include white, black, silver, blue, red, yellow and matte gray. A two-seater cabin is a deviation from Supras of old that all had backseats.

DOT looks to reduce rock fall from Nenana River Canyon onto highway

first_imgThe State Department of Transportation is taking action to reduce rock fall on the Parks Highway through the Nenana River Canyon, near Denali National Park. DOT northern region spokeswoman Meadow Bailey said the area has long posed a safety threat.Download AudioLogo for Alaska Department of Transportation“We ask drivers not to stop in that area. We do have reports of rocks hitting cars, never with significant injury, but enough that it is concerning,” Bailey said.Bailey said the issue has been pressed by a planned road reconstruction project that requires heavy equipment use.“So we had a geo-technical expert come in and look at the slope and they identified eleven areas that are of concern to them and five that are pretty unstable,” Bailey said.Bailey said the state has hired a crew to specifically address the dangerous rock fall areas this summer and fall.“Rappellers are going to come off of the top of the rock face, and they are going to manually remove the loose rocks,” Bailey said. “We are going to do that work through the middle of September, and then we are going to rely on blasting to remove the rock from some of the larger areas.”The Parks Highway Nenana Canyon work will be happening at night. Bailey added that safety barricades will be in place to limit risk to passing vehicles.last_img read more

New ATAS Television Commercial starts Today

first_imgNew ATAS Television Commercial starts TodayNew ATAS Television Commercial starts TodayToday, the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) reveals that a brand new television commercial will hit television screens right across Australia this Sunday, 28 October 2018.The month long campaign will reach 1.97 million consumers in an effort to remind the Australian Traveller that they can rely on travel agents to advise, book and manage their travel.The commercial will be shown across the Seven Network, TenPlay and YouTube reaching Australians in both metro and regional areas.“There are ATAS accredited travel agents spotted in every corner of Australia and the placement of this TV commercial is in an effort to support suburban bricks and mortar travel agents wherever they may be located,” said Jayson Westbury, AFTA Chief Executive.The commercial was carefully crafted using findings from consumer research commissioned by AFTA earlier in the year. FiftyFive5 was the independent and global research agency tasked with the responsibility of discovering what motivates the Australian Traveller to use a travel agent and find the marketing approach which will be the most powerful in influencing purchase behaviour and encouraging Australian’s to book their travel with an industry-accredited travel agency.“The research has been used to understand the Australian Traveller and adopt the most powerful and effective marketing strategies going forward. The messaging used in the television commercial is the messaging that the research found to be most compelling for the consumer,” said Westbury.“We hope that the commercial will also act as a reminder to ATAS accredited agents to use the ATAS logo in their selling narrative to the consumer. 82 per cent of overseas travellers will actively look to book with an ATAS accredited travel agent so it is important that consumers know that your business is accredited,” concluded Westbury.

But to the extent t

But to the extent that having gravitas means something other than being male.

13; Mato Sires, Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman and Justice Navin Sinha observed that structure of the tribunals may need a revisit taking into account the suggestion for permanent cadre, in order to ward off health problems in the future. free of any fear of deportation for a renewable term of three years and to apply for work authorization The lower court in a sharply-divided two-to-one decision enjoined the program on the ground that it exceeded the Presidents authority and the Supreme Courts four-to-four split left the lower courts decision in place As a consequence the program which is strongly supported by Democrats and strongly opposed by Republicans cannot be implemented Because Supreme Court justices do not reveal how they vote in four-to-four splits we cannot know for certain which justices voted to uphold the program and which voted to invalidate it But long-standing voting patterns strongly suggest that the four justices who were appointed by Republican presidents (John Roberts Anthony Kennedy Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito) voted against the program and the four justices who were appointed by Democratic presidents (Ruth Bader Ginsburg Stephen Breyer Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan) voted to uphold it That being so it is reasonable to assume that if Merrick Garland had been confirmed he would have voted to affirm the legality of the program By keeping him off the Supreme Court the Senate Republicans therefore managed to secure an important non-decision that clearly furthers their anti-immigrant political interests But whatever one thinks about the merits of DAPA the conduct of the Senate Republicans is inexcusable Not only do constitutional scholars and legal historians including many conservatives condemn their behavior but the American people denounce their obstructionism by an overwhelming margin of 69% to 27% The Senate Republicans explanation for their intransigencethat the next president should get to fill this vacancyis patently unprincipled and inconsistent with 225 years of American history On 103 occasions in American history an elected president has had an opportunity to fill a vacancy before the election of his predecessor and in every one of those instances the president has been able to appoint the next justice Moreover in every one of these situations in which the vacancy arose during the final year of a presidents term including such presidents as George Washington Thomas Jefferson Andrew Jackson Abraham Lincoln Woodrow Wilson Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan the Senatesometimes controlled by the presidents party sometimes by the opposing partyhas confirmed a nominee There is thus neither historical precedent nor constitutional legitimacy to support the Senate Republicans conduct Their obstructionism is an exercise of raw power The Senate Republicans goal is to control the Supreme Court come hell or high water The reason is simple As illustrated by United States v Texas on many highly controversial issues such as campaign finance reform gun control and voting rights the current eight justices frequently divide four-to-four along quite predictable lines The "fifth" justice therefore matters a lot and the Senate Republicans are determined to do everything in their power whether legitimate or not to prevent that fifth justice from being appointed by a Democratic president What they are trying to do is to have it both ways If the Republican nominee for president is elected in November then Senators Mitch McConnell Chuck Grassley and their cronies will have reserved the nomination for him If the Democratic nominee for president is elected in November then the Senate Republicans will presumably if reluctantly confirm Garland because they understand that from their perspective he is the best nominee they could possibly get This is so because in an effort to appease the Republicans who control the Senate Obama put forth an exceptionally qualified but very moderate 63-year-old nominee Under other circumstances he undoubtedly would have followed the example of his prior nominations of Sotomayor and Kagan who were both much younger and much more liberal that Garland Thus the Senate Republicans are playing a "heads I win tails you lose" game Either they get a young and very conservative justice nominated by Donald Trump or they get the relatively senior and moderate Garland Not a bad deal if you can get it They should not be permitted to play this strategy out If they can pull this off it will set a terrible precedent for the future It would wreak havoc on the Supreme Court confirmation process for decades to come What though can be done to frustrate this cynical and manipulative maneuver Here is my suggestion: President Obama and Hillary Clinton should announce that if the Senate Republicans do not confirm Garlands nomination by say Sept 15 then Obama will withdraw Garlands nomination and upon her election President Clinton will put forth in his place a much younger and much more liberal nominee In short this should be the price the Senate Republicans play for refusing to play by the rules This would be unfair to Garland who deserves better But this may be the only way to force the Senate Republicans hand With the nomination of Garland Obama offered them a very generous compromise one that many liberal Democrats criticized It is now time for the Senate Republicans to take it or leave it and let the chips fall where they may Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices

won his third-straight contest by double-digit margins Tuesday evening in Nevada The win is moving the GOP Establishment from bargaining to depression as it seeks to cope with Trump’s front-runner status No major organized effort has yet been launched to take on Trump who is expected to pick up hundreds of delegates to the GOP convention next week on Super Tuesday partly because party operatives have found no effective way to address the phenomenon Criticism of his record or temperament or policy positions have been met with equal skepticism from voters who are reacting to his reflection of their anger and frustration with the political process In the record-turnout caucuses which were still remarkably low-turnout as most primaries are concerned Trump racked up more votes than the next two finishers combined Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz finished second and third respectively repeating the order of finish in South Carolina this weekend And as in South Carolina the pair were just thousands of votes apart depriving either of the momentum needed to consolidate the anti-Trump vote With Super Tuesday six days away Rubio and Cruz are maintaining their fire on each other in hopes of changing that dynamic The coming days will provide a significant test for both candidates as Rubio searches for a state he can finally win outright and Cruz works to overcome a week of negative headlines critical of his character and trustworthiness to score a must-win victory in his home state of Texas Meanwhile John Kasich and Ben Carson remained in a clearly defined lower tier
