Panthers Shoot Out Isles, 3-2

first_imgSUNRISE, Fla. — The Florida Panthers and New York Islanders had matched each other goal for goal in the first four rounds of a shootout and it was Aleksander Barkov’s turn.He went for his signature move — a one-handed backhand shot away from his body — to slip the decisive goal past Jaroslav Halak in the fifth round and give the Panthers a 3-2 win on Nov. 27.“It has worked a couple of times before and I thought it should work this time, too,” said Barkov, who scored a power-play goal in Florida’s 3-1 loss to Los Angeles Nov. 23. “There was no pressure at all. I just knew what I was going to do and it worked.”Roberto Luongo stopped Brock Nelson’s shot to end the game for his 408th win, moving him past Glenn Hall on the NHL victories list.Brandon Pirri, Vincent Trocheck, Nick Bjugstad and Jonathan Huberdeau also scored in the shootout for the Panthers, who won for the third straight time against the Islanders.Barkov was surprised to see nine goals in the shootout. “That’s the first time I’ve seen that,” he said. “I think the fans were happy.”Islanders’ scorers in the shootout were Frans Nielsen, Kyle Okposo, John Tavares and Josh Bailey.“I know it was very entertaining for the fans,” said Florida coach Gerard Gallant. “We needed those two points and we got them. It’s been a tough stretch.”With Florida ahead 2-0 after two periods, the Islanders stormed back with a pair of goals just over three minutes apart in the third.Ryan Strome beat Luongo high to the glove side for his second goal of the season to cut the deficit to 2-1 with 5:36 gone, and Bailey converted on a one-timer in traffic for his fourth to tie it up at 8:39.Pirri, who has points in all four of his games against the Islanders, gave Florida a 1-0 lead 8:38 into the first period. It was his fourth goal this season and third against New York in his career.Pirri beat Halak on a wrist shot from the top of the right circle. Jaromir Jagr picked up his 10th assist, with Erik Gudbranson adding his third.“We won, so we’re good,” said Pirri, who was moved to the first line by Gallant. “It was real easy to play with those guys. They communicate so well and their hockey IQ is so good, it’d be hard to screw that up.”The Panthers went up 2-0 at 4:42 of the second period when Jussi Jokinen tipped in a perfect feed from Vincent Trocheck behind the net for his 10th goal.Islanders coach Jack Capuano was as surprised by the nine-goal shootout as anyone.“It just seemed like goals kept coming,” Capuano said. “Fortunately for them they got the one they needed.”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Previewing Bedlam 2013

first_imgPhoto Attribution: USATSIPhoto Attribution: USATSII emailed back and forth with Matt Hofeld of Crimson and Cream Machine about the game this weekend. He had some interesting stuff to say about his Sooners and what should be a fascinating Bedlam game…my comments in the footnotes.1. Trevor Knight ____________ better than any QB in the Big 12.As a passer he’s certainly not anywhere near the top of the conference. However, he has shown marked improvement from the start of the season and confidence goes a long way when it comes to the quarterback position.As a playmaker he may be one of the better guys to watch in the Big 12 (averaging 7.7 yards per carry). He just has a knack for getting yards and moving the ball.I certainly wouldn’t dare to rank him as one of the top two quarterbacks in the conference but I would take him over anyone Iowa State, Kansas, West Virginia are throwing out there and maybe even the Kansas State quarterbacks.2. How confident are OU fans about Bob Stoops coaching in big-time games?Its funny how often I get asked this question. There isn’t a coach in the Big 12 who has been in more big games than Bob Stoops, and there certainly isn’t a coach anywhere in the country who has won every big game. Pretty sure that the Notre Dame game this year was a big one, and after Oklahoma’s second loss of the season every game has been big.Let’s not forget that many people were picking the Sooners to lose at Kansas State just a few weeks ago.Sure there have been losses in big games for Stoops (Texas and Baylor this year, Cotton Bowl last season, and many more) but there also have been some pretty big wins as well. No one won more Big 12 championship games than Stoops, nor has any conference coach been to more BCS games. You have to win some pretty big games in order to get to those.[1. I couldn’t agree more with this.]So, yeah, I’m pretty confident in Stoops coaching in big games and, while not all of the Sooner Nation will agree with me, the majority of Oklahoma fans feel the same way.3. What part of this OSU team are OU fans most worried about?All of it!This is a very good Oklahoma State team and they’re good in every aspect of the game. If you made me choose just one area though it would be the offense, specifically the passing game.I’m not sure why or how Walsh beat out Clint Chelf early in the season but he has clearly been the answer for the O-State offense since being inserted back into the lineup. Oklahoma’s secondary struggled against Texas, Baylor and Kansas State and now they are going up against one of the best playmakers in the in conference.OSU has 23 passing touchdowns this season and has only given up 10 sacks. I’m sure that I don’t have to tell you this but I will anyway, had Gundy not placed Walsh over Chelf the Cowboys would be playing this game with a potential BCS championship birth on the line.4. Who is the most important player on OU’s defense?I’m going to go with linebacker Eric Striker. He’s a pass rushing specialist who is second on the team in sacks (3.5). He’s extremely disruptive in the offensive backfield and absolutely must continue his stellar season on Saturday. Oklahoma can’t afford to give Chelf time in the pocket, nor can they afford to allow him to make big gains on the ground.Striker will play a huge role in OU’s success or failure in defending the Cowboys’ passing attack, and he’ll draw the extra responsibility of providing run support as well.5. Why is a 9-2 OU team a 11-point dog to Oklahoma State?Because of what the Sooners did (or didn’t do) against Texas and Baylor. To this point of the season Oklahoma has not proven that they deserve to be mentioned in the race for the conference championship.They have absolutely no chance of winning the Big 12, regardless of what happens in Stillwater, and their outings against the two best teams they’ve faced this season went terribly south.Couple that with injuries, questions at quarterback, and shaky offensive identity, you get a double-digit underdog on the road against what most perceive as the best team in the conference.6. Give me your prediction for Saturday.As much as a homer as I am, there’s just no way that I can pick Oklahoma to win this game. I think that they can keep it fairly close but in the end they lose 27-24 to a better Oklahoma State team.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

PSOJ President Says Confidence in Business Community is at Record High

first_img President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ), Howard Mitchell, says confidence within the business community is at a level that he has not seen in a very long time.Delivering the keynote address at the Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) Business Breakfast at the S Hotel in Montego Bay, St. James, on April 16, he said it is against this backdrop that the vision behind the hosting of an international trade show by the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters’ Association (JMEA) is nothing short of a brilliant move.Mr. Mitchell said that while the hosting of an exhibition is always risky business, “the hosting of an exhibition and inviting foreigners is even more risky”.“It requires confidence in your products and a great dedication to excellence. However, in the case of this biennial Jamaica International Exhibition, now in its second staging, both of those qualities are here in abundance,” he added.The President said that Jamaica is also enjoying a level of popularity regionally and globally, where in moving around the Caribbean, “we are talked about and congratulated every time I speak to my counterparts”.“I am sure that several overseas visitors will come to this show just out of curiosity to see if the good things that they hear are true,” he said.Mr. Mitchell is predicting that this year’s exhibition will be “the biggest and best yet” and “I bring with me, today, the best wishes and full support” of the PSOJ along with a personal commitment “to help you promote it anywhere and anytime I get the chance”.“The JIE is a biennial multisectoral trade show which provides a global marketplace for our best products and an excellent opportunity for business to business exchanges and for enhancement of export and import opportunities with Jamaica’s global trading partners,” he said.“It is being held in the jewel of the Caribbean… Montego Bay… which has a number of advantages… aside from its beauty and excellent geographical location,” Mr. Mitchell said.The President said that the hotel trade in Jamaica is worth $45 billion in manufactured goods, and “we hope to see their buyers and procurement officers” out in record numbers for this important trade show.He added that nowadays, the economy of Montego Bay has been matching Kingston in size and energy, noting that this exhibition will show both the western region and the world the wonderful products made right here in Jamaica.The President said this year there will be a record number of 80 exhibitors with a wide range of products, and that the event is attracting close to 150 buyers from over 12 countries.

Chinese President Xi ready to work with Sri Lanka

Chinese President Xi Jinping says he is willing to work with Sri Lanka to consolidate political mutual trust, expand mutually beneficial cooperation and deepen people-to-people friendship.The Sri Lankan leadership has meanwhile told the top Chinese leadership that China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has not only strengthened bilateral ties but has also opened up new areas for cooperation, The Hindustan Times reported. Xi said he appreciates Sri Lanka for its active participation in the Belt and Road Initiative.“I am willing to work with you to consolidate political mutual trust, expand mutually beneficial cooperation and deepen people-to-people friendship” to inject new vigour into the strategic cooperative partnership “featuring sincere mutual assistance and enduring friendship”, Xi said.Wickremesinghe, according to Xinhua, told Li that Sri Lanka-China friendship, which has continued for centuries through the ancient maritime silk road, was further strengthened under the BRI. According to China’s official Xinhua news agency: “Sirisena noted that Sri Lanka is firmly dedicated to promoting its relations with China and that he believed on the basis of the ancient Maritime Silk Road, the Belt and Road Initiative will open up a new era for Sri Lanka-China cooperation.”Friendship between Sri Lanka and China dates back to a long time ago, Sirisena said, adding that since the two countries established diplomatic relations, their ties have gained constant and sound development and were upgraded to a strategic partnership. China considers Sri Lanka an important part of the BRI and has lavished investment on the island nation in the past decade. Colombo too has been eager to use its strategic location in the Indian Ocean to strengthen its infrastructure and economy. “The initiative has also provided opportunities for the two countries to explore new areas of cooperation,” he said. President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang exchanged greetings with their Sri Lankan counterparts Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremesinghe to mark the 60th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties. Li said in recent years, the two countries, taking the BRI as an opportunity, had broadened cooperation. “China is willing to work with Sri Lanka to carry forward the traditional friendship and deepen win-win cooperation so that the China-Sri Lanka strategic cooperative partnership can achieve more accomplishments,” he said.

Countrylevel action new frontier for tackling soil pollution – UN agriculture agency

Soil pollution due to human activities that leave excess chemicals in soils took centre stage at the 5th Global Soil Partnership (GSP) Plenary Assembly held at the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) headquarters this week in Rome. “Soil pollution is an emerging problem, but, because it comes in so many forms, the only way we can reduce knowledge gaps and promote sustainable soil management is to intensify global collaboration and build reliable scientific evidence,” said Ronald Vargas, FAO soils officer and Secretary of the GSP. Excess nitrogen and trace metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury can impair plant metabolism and cut crop productivity, ultimately putting pressure on arable land. When they enter the food chain, such pollutants also pose risks to food security, water resources, rural livelihoods and human health, underscored FAO. “The GSP Plenary Assembly is a unique, neutral and multi-stakeholder platform to discuss global soil issues, to learn from good practices, and to deliberate on actions to secure healthy soils for an effective provision of ecosystem services and food for all,” said Maria Helena Semedo, FAO Deputy Director-General, Climate and Natural Resources. “Action at the country level is the new frontier.” The Plenary Assembly endorsed three new initiatives aimed at facilitating information exchange: the Global Soil Information System; the Global Network of Soil Laboratories, set up to coordinate and standardize measurement across countries; and the International Network of Black Soils, launched to increase knowledge about the world’s most fertile agricultural soils, which are also known for their high carbon content. Soil pollution under scrutinyThe term soil pollution refers to the presence in soils of chemicals that are either out of place or at higher-than-normal concentrations. It is an insidious risk because it is harder to observe than some other soil degradation processes, such as erosion. Agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides – and antibiotics contained in animal manure – are major potential pollutants, posing special challenges due to the fast-changing chemical formulas employed. The GSP endorsed a global symposium on soil contamination and pollution, for April 2018, and supported data networks to share information and harmonize standards to ease the burden. Black soils“Black soils” are far from uniform. The new International Network of Black Soils defines them as containing at least 25 centimetres of humus and with soil organic carbon content above two per cent; by this definition they cover about 916 million hectares, or seven per cent of the world’s ice-free land surface. The Network will promote their conservation and long-term productivity by producing analytic reports and serving as a platform for knowledge sharing and technical cooperation. read more

Banksy election stunt backfires amid police investigation

Originally the artist said this print would be released on June 9, the day after the election. It would only available to registered voters in the Bristol North West, Bristol West, North Somerset, Thornbury, Kingswood and Filton constituencies.”Simply send in a photo of your ballot paper from polling day showing you voted against the Conservative incumbent and this complimentary gift will be mailed to you,” his original message said. The Electoral Commission, which oversees elections in the UK, warned that bribery, “where someone directly or indirectly gives any money or procures any office to or for any voter, in order to induce any voter to vote or not vote”, is an electoral offence.A person is guilty of treating if they, either before, during or after an election, directly or indirectly, give or provide “any food, drink, entertainment or provision to corruptly influence any voter to vote or refrain from voting”. Treating requires a corrupt intent – it does not apply to ordinary hospitality.The charity Crimestoppers has been warning voters to be wary of electoral fraud during the election, saying on its website: “It’s illegal to offer money or gifts to voters, directly or indirectly, to get someone to vote a certain way, or not to vote at all.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Minister reveals that over 6000 children in State care

first_img By Darragh McDonagh Minister reveals that over 6,000 children in State care The number of children in care has risen by almost 20% during the past decade. Thursday 9 Feb 2017, 6:43 AM Share40 Tweet Email2 Minister for Children, Katherine Zappone. Minister for Children, Katherine Zappone. Image: Eamonn Farrell/ Feb 9th 2017, 6:43 AM Another crucial piece of the puzzle is supporting families sooner to prevent problems escalating which can in turn lead to children being removed from their care.“Offering parents support to improve their parenting capacity and skills is vital to enhancing children’s outcomes. The value of early intervention supports should not be underestimated and should be invested in more widely.”Read: ‘Letting agencies said that a landlord will never chose me in the rental lottery because I have kids’ >Read: ‘We’re very worried’: Locals react as HP Inc to shut with loss of 500 jobs > Short URL 13 Comments Image: Eamonn Farrell/ THERE WERE 6,276 children in the care of the State at the end of last November, according to figures released by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs.The majority of these are living in foster homes, while others are accommodated in state-run or private residential centres across the country.The figures were provided by Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone this week in response to a parliamentary question from Fianna Fáil spokesperson Anne Rabbitte.The number of children in care has risen by almost 20% during the past decade, although the most recent figures represent a reduction of 241 since 2014.“The latest figures from Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, indicate that at the end of November 2016, there were 6,276 children in care,” said Zappone.A total of 325 of these children are accommodated in residential centres – 151 in state-run centres, and 174 run by private or voluntary organisations.Support“Residential care is usually for older children, where their needs may not be met in foster care or where this is their preferred placement,” said the Children’s Minister in her response.“In general, these centres are based in domestic-style homes in the community, catering for two or three older children and staffed by social care workers to attend to the needs of the child.”Private residential centres are subject to registration and inspection by Tusla. There are as many as 100 such centres located across four Tusla administrative regions covering the State.“A child is placed in a residential setting only when they have an identified need that can be met by this service or for an intensive assessment or provision of specialist services,” explained Zappone.Breakdown“Some of the young people in residential care will have come into care recently, while others may have experienced the breakdown of other care placements, including foster care.“Specialist supports are also routinely made available, as needed, and many centres have specialised skillsets and therapeutic modalities.”June Tinsley, head of advocacy with children’s charity Barnardos Head said the system of service provision must be capable of meeting the needs of children in its care.“This means all children and young people having a personalised care plan which is implementable, assigned social workers to offer consistent support to them and their foster families, availability and access to additional supports (when needed) and a clear aftercare plan to support the transition to independent adulthood,” she said. 9,181 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Des escargots à peine plus gros que des têtes dépingle

first_imgDes escargots à peine plus gros que des têtes d’épingleFace à la potentielle extinction de l’escargot Partula gibba, des écologistes britanniques se battent pour sauver cette toute petite créature. Les escargots Partula gibba sont ainsi nommés en référence à la déesse romaine de l’accouchement. En effet, contrairement aux autres espèces, ces escargots donnent eux naissance directement et ne pondent pas d’oeufs. Normalement, ils peuvent vivre jusqu’à au moins 10 ans mais ils sont aujourd’hui menacés d’extinction, notamment en raison de leur taille minuscule. Plus précisément, leur disparition est due à une expérience malheureuse qui a échoué et presque anéanti, dans les îles du Pacifique, toute la population de ces escargots qui ne mesurent pas plus de 2,5 centimètres.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En 1974, de nombreux spécimens d’un autre escargot, l’Euglandina rosea, ont été introduits sur les îles dans le but de contrôler le nombre d’escargots invasifs Achatina fulica. Mais loin de contrôler cette population, ce prédateur redoutable s’est en fait attaqué aux autres espèces locales parmi lesquelles Partula gibba, décimant ces mollusques. Aujourd’hui, 123 des 306 spécimens de la population mondiale de cette espèce sont gardés au zoo de Marwell, avec sept autres espèces d’escargots. Quant aux autres, ils sont conservés au zoo de Londres. D’où l’inquiétude des spécialistes. Cette année, les conservateurs comptent relâcher quelques escargots dans certaines réserves des îles. Ils seront alors étroitement surveillés avant d’être libérés dans la nature. Toutefois, rien n’affirme que ceci va fonctionner et la menace demeure. “Je regarde une espèce mourir devant moi et de penser que ces escargots pourraient s’éteindre au cours de ma vie est incroyablement triste”, commente Geoff Read qui dirige la section des invertébrés au zoo de Marwell.  “Je sais que ce ne sont que des escargots et je déteste dire ça mais juste parce qu’ils ne sont pas beaux les gens n’ont pas l’air de s’en soucier. Ces animaux sont incroyablement rares et avoir le tiers de la population ici dans cette pièce est tout pour moi”, ajoute t-il encore cité par le Daily Mail. Cependant, une lueur d’espoir existe : l’International Partula Conservation Programme a prévu de réintroduire ces escargots dans la nature au cours des prochaines années.

Seyii Tolof – Part 77 EPISODE 6 Difficult Marriages The Wicked

first_imgBy Amie SillahConfusion Mama wept bitterly when she heard Gasim driving into the compound. He halted and went to her.Gasim “What’s wrong mom? Has a person died?”Mama Rosa (Rugi) “Your evil wife and her maid are tormenting me in this house; they will refuse to give me good food and Margo would not allow me play with my grandson they say I am evil and would harm him; can you imagine?” She became hysterical.Gasim “Okay I’ll talk to them.” “Prepare for me I’ll go back to the village tomorrow.” “But bear with me until end of month to enable me give you a good package.” “I am staying because of you but give me pocket money to buy whatever I need if they serve me bad food.” “No problem.” He gave her pocket money and asked her to request for more if depleted. She smiled; “That is my son no one can come between us.” She said aloud for Chaa and Margo to hear. Gasim announced his presence and searched every where for Chaa and found her in the kitchen preparing dinner. He kissed her and left without mentioning anything about mama or her troubles.Chaa “Let me let sleeping dog to lie. As her son, he did not raise it why should I?” She kept quiet and went to the sitting room. “Dinner is being served!” She announced. Gasim got up but Mama refused and ignored her. “Mama Dinner is being served! Are you not going to eat?”Mama “I am not a pretender when you are around she pretends to be an angel but when you are not around they serve me bad food; I am dining out I don’t need her food and it will remain so until I leave.”Gasim He shook his head in disgust sighed and said; “Suit yourself mama! Suit yourself!” Mama sang foul songs hissed and went out to dine. “I have money to spend my son is rich and I can never be a beggar or in charity in my son’s house.” “Sunshine! Ignore her pettiness and whatever humanely possible that you can do for her do it and remember I’ll always be on your side you are my missing rib, my oxygen.” He kissed her.Lawrence Lamarana He came unannounced. Gasim is infuriated. “What are you doing here? How is your village business? I hope you have some good news to tell me your huge profit and diversication you want to undergo.” He muffled some illegible words and laughed. “I missed mama and came to find out why she is still here leaving behind her lucrative village business.”Gasim He became cynical.    “Indeed you are a big fool! Mama’s boy you are being called; aren’t they right?”Mama Rosa She came to the defense of her son. “The fact that you assist him does not give you the right to insult and marginalize him; he is your elder brother for God sake!”Gasim “You’ve seen it! You spoil him! Do you intend to make him a dependent for life? Mama this is shameful; I’ve said it I’ll never give him any assistance until he proves himself and nothing,anyone can persuade me not even you my mother.”Time to Leave Prior to the departure day Chaa persuaded her to go and make her hair at the saloon; reluctantly she went with her; after the saloon she drove her to town to do her shopping; she shopped extravagantly but Chaa took enough money to ensure there was no friction. Mama is happy on top of the world. “This is the first time in your marriage to my son that you do me good, keep it up because after all it is my son’s wealth and you have a son and you would like your daughter in law to treat you well. What goes around comes around.” She said with sarcasm.Chaa “Thank you for the good advice but berest assured I will always put God in what ever I do and will ensure I am an asset in Baaba’s life and not a liability.” The words were piercing and mama felt it and frowns.Returns Back to the Village Katherine Kanku She is the second child and a SEN (State Enrolled Nurse); mama acted as a pimp and tried to sell her to political bosses, business elite or any body who can give money for that matter. At first Kanku played bond but as the years go by she came to the conclusion that her mother is selfish and does not wish her to settle and found a family. Many suitors came from the village or catchment area but were all rejected by mama for one parochial reason or another; “He is a ‘tega’ (smith), an ‘wude’ (cobbler), a ‘jamm’ (slave) or a ‘domma’ (witchcraft), ‘ndol’ (pauper).” The rejection goes on.Kanku “I am fed up mama, I’ll marry my choice whether you reject or not, are you the one marrying or me?”The Marriage Alhajj Bassiru came to ask for Kanku’s hand in marriage. Mama sent his envoys away. “Alhajj Bassiru is over 60 years and wants to marry my daughter of 35 years? Moreover, they are of differentfaith and my daughter would never convert. His wife died and since then he never remarried; what killed his wife? Go and tell him that he will not marry my daughter.”Kanku The friends strategized and asked the envoys to visit Kanku’s eldest paternal uncle.Sir Njogu    He is a church elder and very positive. He accepted the envoys and asked the friends whether they are keen to marry each other and they replied in the positive then he facilitated the process and a ‘Taaki Bassang’ took place where Kanku retained her faith.Alhajj Bassiru He is a widower, a Senior Dispenser now retired but running a series of Pharmacies across the country. He is blessed with 5 children three men and two women all married and professional of various kinds with children some are working and staying abroad and others in country. She was a senior to Kanku in the hospital where she works. The couple love themselves and Kanku is now an expectant mother.Mama Rosa She ganged with Lama to torment Kanku. “Look at her she is ‘lamba’ (a reject) who cannot marry a person in her faith or her age mate. I am sorry for you.” She mocked and Law concurred.Kanku She cursed and insulted them. “Look at them coal calling kettle black! 6 and 9 aren’t you?” She turned to Lawrence Lama and said; “Look at you mama’s boy! Aren’t you ashamed of yourself? A fool at 40, your age mates married with children and here you were mama’s tail; she made you a ‘tooye’ (fool) to satisfy her ego; I was in the same boat she using me in a pimp ring but I am now happily married but look at you I pity you; and moreover, stop going to the city to harass and torment that innocent woman; let her be and I am no longer part of your conspiracy to torment her.” Lama rushed to hit her but Kanku came forward and challenged him. “Hit me coward and you’ll be jailed for life good for nothing!” She snapped.

ASK wants judicial commission to probe Ekramul killing

first_imgEkramul HaqueAin O Salish Kendra (ASK) on Sunday urged the government to form a judicial inquiry commission to investigate all the incidents of killing in ‘gunfights’, including that of Teknaf councillor Ekramul Haque.In a statement, the rights body also demanded the government ensure the safety of Ekramul’s family, reports UNB.Referring to the audio clips containing the recorded conversations between Ekram and his daughter and wife before and when he was shot dead by law enforcers, the rights body said it has created panic among people over ‘planned killings’ by law enforcers in the name of ‘gunfight’.The statement termed ‘regrettable’ the remark of the government high-ups that ‘one or two mistakes may occur’ in such a drive.ASK said the impact of such incidents is far-reaching and called for immediately stopping the ‘gunfight’ in the name of anti-drug operation.It said, “To eradicate any kind of crime from society, the state must take a tough position, but extrajudicial killings in the name of crime elimination can never be justified.”last_img read more

And as noted though he is a free agent Jones wil

first_imgAnd, as noted, though he is a free agent Jones will not be going anywhere, according to Arians, who said the day after the season ended that the franchise tag would be used on the player if necessary. For what it’s worth, Jones has maintained his preference is to make his stay in Arizona last more than just one season.While Jones is fifth on the list, he is closely followed by defensive teammate Calais Campbell, who is at No. 8.There’s no other player quite like Campbell, as thoughtful and savvy as he is physically overwhelming at 6-foot-8, 282 pounds. He would make a great “get over the hump” piece for a team looking for a title.Before the season started, many felt like this would be Campbell’s last in Arizona. However, the veteran finished the season with eight sacks — moving him into second on the Cardinals’ all-time sacks leader list — and had a team-best 26 QB pressures to go along with 27 QB hits. Campbell’s production, along with the struggles of first-round pick Robert Nkemdiche, have led some to believe the Cardinals may decide it’s worth keeping the two-time Pro Bowler around, at least if the price is right.For his part, Campbell has always said he would like to stay. 0 Comments   Share   The final Cardinal to land in the top 25 is safety Tony Jefferson, who came in at No. 23.Was he a product of the Cardinals’ aggressive system? Jefferson can make plays all over the field if he finds a coach who knows how to deploy him.Jefferson really emerged in 2016, with 92 total tackles, two sacks and five passes defensed. One of the team’s better special teams players, too, he was playing under a one-year contract after re-signing as a restricted free agent last offseason.Jefferson has also said he would like to remain in Arizona, but understands that the NFL is a business and he’s not exactly sure what will happen.“But I think the interest between each of us is obviously mutual,” he said. “This is pretty much my home.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The sheer volume of Arizona Cardinals free agents this offseason is no secret, as they have more than 20 players who are unrestricted free agents and another handful who are restricted.Of the 20-plus players who are about to hit the open market, three of them, according to’s Gregg Rosenthal, are among the top 25 free agents in the entire league.Coming in at No. 5 was linebacker Chandler Jones.After being traded to Arizona, Jones did a better job than his former teammate Patriots Jamie Collins of proving he can thrive in any defensive system. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians already declared the team will retain Jones with the franchise tag if it can’t sign him long-term.Jones, whom the Cardinals acquired in exchange for guard Jonathan Cooper and a second-round draft pick, notched 11 sacks — giving him consecutive seasons with double-digit sack totals for the first time in his career — along with four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 14 QB pressures and 22 QB hits.

Pointless hospitals strike ends as Patsalis says most demands already met

first_imgBy Evie Andreou and Andria KadesTHURSDAY’S four-hour strike by all staff at public hospitals was unwarranted and set personal interests above that of patients, Health minister Philippos Patsalis said, adding that almost all of the trade unions’ demands have already been met.Fortunately, he said, no serious cases were reported and none were referred to the private hospitals.Health professionals should struggle for the best interest of the patients and not for their own, Patsalis said during a ‘damage control’ visit to Nicosia General Hospital, adding that there was a low turnout at the public hospitals and that no significant problems were recorded.Joining the strike, organised by the PASYNO union, the nurses’ branch of the public service union PASYDY, were the nurses and midwives association, the PASYDY unions for mental health professionals, physiotherapists, radiologists, lab technicians and pharmacists, as well as the state doctors’ union PASYKI.The striking health professionals claimed government promises have not been kept on staffing and pay.During the strike from 7.30 to 11am, all state hospitals were operating with skeleton staff, while it had been announced a day earlier that cases of life threatening conditions would be diverted to private hospitals.Patsalis said that striking was not the solution to the problems in the health sector as it caused more inconvenience to patients.“I understand that our hospitals are overcrowded and there is an increased work load, but it is more important to look at the problems of the patients, and not of the health professionals,” the minister said.As regards the nurses’ and doctors’ demands, he said that his ministry has met most of the demands raised by unions, that could be realised according to current legislation, the bail-out memorandum and the economic crisis.“We decided to strike when we realised that the current situation in hospitals cannot be tolerated any more,” the head of the PASYDY nurses union, Prodromos Argyrides, said.He added that to be able to meet the demands of the overcrowded hospitals, 100 more nurses need to be hired and that if the government cannot afford to hire them, then hospital beds should be decreased so that they can provide better services.“Concerning the nurses, we have proceeded to unfreeze administrative posts and some promotions have been effected… but all the demands of all health professionals will be discussed within the framework of the hospitals’ autonomy and restructuring, which we cannot discuss yet as circumstances do not allow this,” the minister said.Commenting on the demands for extra nursing staff, he said that the needs of each hospital will be identified from studies made concerning the restructuring of hospitals and not from personal estimates.The head of sate doctors union PASYKI, Maro Kontou said that they have reached an agreement with the ministry concerning overtime pay, but that the new system they agreed on, and which is applicable since the beginning of the year, has not been implemented yet.Another issue is the problem some 300 doctors face who work on temporary contracts, Kontou said.She added that according to the law, after 30 months of service, temporary contracts must be converted to indefinite contracts, but this is not the case.As regards doctors, two of the three main demands have been met – overtime pay and unfreezing of 56 hospital administration posts – while the third issue concerning temporary contracts will be addressed within the allowed legal framework, Patsalis said.He added that the bill concerning hospitals’ autonomy will be tabled to parliament in about a month and he invited all health professionals to discuss issues as of Monday in order to start addressing the remaining issues.However, he chastised doctors for breaking the agreement they had with the ministry a few months ago, when the ministry agreed to their demands but asked that they refrain from any strike measure.“To me, the doctors’ strike was unjustified and inexplicable,” Patsalis said.Despite opposition from health professionals, Patsalis said that during his visit to the hospital, he was urged by members of the public to proceed with the reforms so that the level of services is improved.“We either do this change together by leaving aside petty interests, or we have to take the decision that will take us towards self-destruction,” Patsalis said.The head of the organised patients’ association, Marios Kouloumas, said that even though they are not against strikes, patients should come first and asked for solutions to be found.“Do you know what this means for a patient who has been waiting for a year for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan to find out it has been cancelled today?” Kouloumas said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet
