Proseccos bubble shows no sign of bursting

first_imgASOLO, Italy — Prosecco, the fruity sparkling wine made in the northeastern hills of Italy is gaining in global popularity — and producers of Champagne, for so long the dominant bubbly wine, are taking note.Prosecco has become the bestselling sparkling wine in the world by volume, and experts say it is eroding the market share of Champagne, the French wine that is synonymous with celebration but also comes with a heftier price tag. The Italian wine’s production eclipsed Champagne’s five years ago and is now 75 per cent higher at 544 million bottles.Champagne still claims the revenues crown, cashing in a record 4.9 billion euros ($5.6 billion) last year on 307 million bottles, 2.8 billion euros of that in exports. But Prosecco’s bubble shows no sign of bursting: exports this year are trending up 16 per cent.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Geologists for immediate relocation of 12 villages in Ukhands Pithoragarh

first_imgPithoragarh: Geologists have identified 12 landslide-prone villages in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand that need to be relocated before the onset of monsoon.”Twelve of the 20 villages surveyed in the district so far are highly prone to landslides. They have been witnessing landslides for the past several years. It would be better if their inhabitants are shifted elsewhere before the onset of monsoon,” said Pradeep Kumar, a geologist at the Geology and Mining Department. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’A team of geologists, led by Kumar, had started their survey on December 24, 2017, the report of which has now been released. The villages that need to be immediately relocated are Senar, Kultham and Bhadeli in Munsiyari, Tankul, Chalma Chilaso, Himkhola, Kanar, Dharpangu, Suwa, Bungbung, Garguwa, Syari, Jamku and Bharbheli in Dharchula and Garzila of Berinag. Disclosing that the survey was being extended to 12 more villages in the region, the geologist said, While the land has been identified for Senar, Kultham and Bhadeli villages in Munsiyari subdivision, the process to identify sites for other villages is on. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KCiting the example of Garzila village, which is currently inhabited by only 12 families and needs immediate relocation, Kumar said, The upper terrain of the village has been made of small boulders of quartzite nature. It is situated near a massive landslide zone due to which it will be under a constant threat of landslides in monsoon, which might result in damages to the families living there. Until a strong safety wall is constructed above the village, it would be threatened by massive landslides. We have also recommended that the village be saved from a constant erosion by the Ramganga river underneath, said the geologist. According to local residents, several families have left the village in the past 20 years and settled at safer places, leaving only 12 families behind. The villagers spend their nights in the open during monsoon due to the threat of landslides, said Ram Singh, a resident of Garzila village.last_img read more

Dilan says no move to ban maids to Lebanon

Pereira also said that his country is teaching its citizens both Arabic and English so that they can communicate better with their employers in Lebanon. His comments came after meeting Lebanon’s Labor Minister Salim Jreissati at the latter’s office. Sri Lanka’s plan to ban women travelling abroad to work in menial jobs excludes Lebanon, a Sri Lankan government minister said Thursday in Beirut, as the two countries draft an agreement over the issue.“[There is] no ban on the travel of domestic workers and Sri Lankan labor to Lebanon, on the contrary we are working to better the conditions of their experiences here and raise the age of those with the right to travel from 21 to 23,” Sri Lankan Minister of Foreign Employment and Social Services Dilan Pereira told reporters. The meeting between the two officials was aimed at drafting a new agreement that will soon be signed governing Sri Lankan labor rights.Jreissati said Lebanon guarantees decent labor and fair wages for domestic workers, adding that he is drafting a code of conduct for decent labor. Following the beheading of a 17-year-old nanny in Saudi Arabia, Sri Lankan Information Minister Keheliya Rambukwella announced last Thursday that women under 25 were now banned from going to the Arab state to work as maids.Sri Lankan Rizana Nafik was charged with smothering a four-month-old baby in Saudi Arabia in 2005.Lebanon has seen many cases of abuse against domestic workers with activists criticizing the sponsorship system for promoting such practices. In a 2008 report, Human Rights Watch found that there was an average of one death a week from unnatural causes among domestic workers in Lebanon, including suicide and falls from tall buildings.

US business economists see slower growth and profits ahead

WASHINGTON — U.S. business economists expect economic growth to slow this year, and a rising proportion of them think corporate sales and profits will decline.The National Association for Business Economics said Monday that its quarterly survey of business conditions found that the Trump administration’s tariffs on goods from China, Europe and other countries have disrupted the businesses of about one-fourth of its members.Still, the survey also found that the NABE’s member economists generally expect the economy to keep growing, albeit only gradually, and to avoid a recession in the next 12 months. Just under half say they think the economy will expand 2% or more over the next year — sharply lower than the two-thirds who predicted so in January.Overall, the survey suggested that the economists, who work mainly for corporations and trade associations, expect the economy to cool in part because of the higher costs imposed on imported materials by Trump’s tariffs. (The NABE says 119 of its members responded to the survey.)The results echo the message from the government’s report Friday on economic growth in the April-June quarter. The government estimated that growth slowed to a 2.1% annual rate from a 3.1% rate in the January-March quarter. Businesses cut back on their investment spending for the first time in three years, which most analysts attributed to a more cautionary strategy resulting from the trade war.Overall, 28% of respondents said they thought the tariffs have had a negative impact on their business. That figure was much higher among manufacturers: Three-quarters felt the tariffs had hurt business. Factories have been hit hard by the administration’s expanded taxes on imported steel and aluminum.The survey also suggested that the job market may be cooling slightly. One-third of respondents said that they had hired during the April-June quarter, down from 44% who had said so a year earlier. And just below one-third said they expected to hire in the next three months, down from 41% a year ago.There were some bright spots in the results: Nearly half the respondents expect business investment spending in buildings, equipment and software to increase in the July-September quarter. That’s the highest proportion to say so in a year.Christopher Rugaber, The Associated Press read more

UN trust fund to enhance role of youth volunteers in global development

A new trust fund aimed at boosting youth volunteerism kicked off today with the goal of transforming the energy of the world’s young people into tangible global development targets, the United Nations has announced. Launched by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and UN Volunteers (UNV), the trust fund will provide the financial foundations for the creation of a youth volunteering modality which, in turn, will assist governments in the development of their own national and regional youth volunteer schemes while encouraging thousands of young people to support peace and development activities worldwide. “Through volunteering, young people gain a strong sense of civic engagement to bring about transformational change in their communities,” the UNDP Administrator, Helen Clark, said in a news release. “Youth participation and volunteering are critical for achieving sustainable human development and UNDP will continue to attach high importance to the youth agenda, including through the UN Youth Volunteers Programme,” Ms. Clark added. Since launching operations in 1971, the UNV programme has deployed more than 7,700 volunteers every year nationally and internationally, with 80 per cent coming from developing countries, and more than 30 per cent volunteering within their own countries.The volunteers play key roles in contributing to peace and development in some 130 countries, helping to organize and run local and national elections and supporting a large number of peacekeeping and humanitarian projects. Overall, UN Volunteers comprise one third of all international civilians working in UN peacekeeping operations, according to the UNV website. However, with the new trust fund in play, UNV voiced hope that it would be able to build on the current 87 international youth volunteers it already deploys across 50 countries.Adding his voice to the celebration of the fund’s establishment, UNV Executive Coordinator Richard Dictus urged Member States to contribute to the $5 million sought for the programme’s initial roll-out. “We look forward to building on further support from other development partners as the programme expands and will require more financial resources,” Mr. Dictus stated, as he thanked the Government of Germany for its $1.5 million endowment, the first to contribute to the fund. “This will enable us to reach as many youth around the world as possible.” read more

Ohio State womens lacrosse beats Oregon 139 behind Katie Chase

Senior attackman Katie Chase (11) handles the ball during a game against Northwestern March 9 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 11-10.Courtesy of OSU AthleticsFrom the first drop of the ball, Katie Chase had one thing on her mind: scoring goals.The senior attackman for the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team turned in a career-high seven goals on her way to eight points as the No. 18 Buckeyes topped Oregon, 13-9, Wednesday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.High winds wreaked havoc on play throughout the entirety of the game, leading OSU coach Alexis Venechanos to attribute much of the team’s success against the Ducks (4-4, 1-0) to Chase’s work on and off the ball.Venechanos described Chase as a “special player” that had a “really strong game.”“She took over parts of that game in the draw control,” Venechanos said after the game. “Her teammates looked for her and she shot phenomenally.”The Buckeyes (7-4, 1-1) got off to a quick start, gaining possession of the ball off the game’s first draw. Chase set the pace for the match early by scoring the game’s first goal 23 seconds into the game.“We always want to score first,” Venechanos said. “That was important to start like that.”Chase said setting the tone early is a goal OSU has every game, and she felt they were able to do that with a quick goal from the start.“It gets the beat up for our attack and gets us in the flow of things,” Chase said after the win.The momentum from Chase’s quick strike didn’t continue, however, as the Ducks responded with two goals in just less than five minutes to take a 2-1 lead.But OSU, lead by Chase — who completed a hat trick before the half ended — struck back to take a 4-2 lead before Oregon evened the count with 11:06 left in the first half.OSU senior attackman Cara Facchina tallied her third goal of the season at the 2:29 mark in the first, though, to give the Buckeyes a one-goal advantage heading into the break.“They would answer, then we would answer,” junior goalie Tori DeScenza said on the first half. “But we really (hunkered) down knowing that they were going to swing the ball pretty fast.”Along with hard work on the offense, the Buckeyes gained their success with the defensive mentality around the field forcing numerous turnovers from Oregon’s strong attack.“We haven’t seen an attack like them,” Venechanos said. “We really had trouble with it.”The Ducks’ strong attack tested the OSU defense, but the Buckeyes maintained composure and were able to gain more possessions to help secure the victory.Part of that defense was DeScenza, who fought hard in the net all throughout the game and ended the game with 10 saves.The game was the first ever between the two programs.DeScenza credits Oregon with its good stick skills but was proud of how hard the defense worked to combat them.“It was a hard battle all the way to the final whistle,” DeScenza said.The Buckeyes head back to work to prepare for a match against William and Mary set for noon Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Authorities probe how airline employee could steal plane

first_imgOLYMPIA (AP) — Investigators are piecing together how an airline ground agent working his regular shift stole an empty Horizon Air turboprop plane, took off from Sea-Tac International Airport and fatally crashed into a small island in the Puget Sound after being chased by military jets that were quickly scrambled to intercept the aircraft.Officials said Saturday that the man was a 3.5-year Horizon employee and had clearance to be among aircraft, but that to their knowledge, he wasn’t a licensed pilot. The 29-year-old man used a machine called a pushback tractor to first maneuver the aircraft so he could board and then take off Friday evening, authorities added.It’s unclear how he attained the skills to do loops in the aircraft before crashing about an hour after taking off into a small island in the Puget Sound, authorities said. He crashed nearly an hour after the plane was taken from a maintenance area, though officials said that it did not appear that the fighter jets were involved in the crash of the aircraft. In a news release issued Saturday, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said two F-15C alert aircraft were scrambled from Portland but did not fire upon the plane.At a news conference in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, officials from Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air said that they are still working closely with authorities as they investigate what happened.“Safety is our No. 1 goal,” said Brad Tilden, CEO of Alaska Airlines. “Last night’s event is going to push us to learn what we can from this tragedy so that we can ensure this does not happen again at Alaska Air Group or at any other airline.”last_img read more

Waste Connections debuts naturalgasfueled trucks

first_imgNormally, buying four new yard debris trucks isn’t cause for celebration at Waste Connections Inc.Normally, those trucks don’t run without a drop of diesel fuel. But the latest additions are something different — the vehicles rolled out locally last month are fueled by the county’s first compressed natural gas fueling station.Waste Connections officials and local leaders dedicated one of the new trucks Thursday at the company’s hauling facility in the Five Corners area off Northeast 94th Avenue. As the specially equipped truck started up next to the fueling station, the gathering took note of one benefit some residents may have noticed already during their morning pick-up.“They’re quieter,” said Chris Thomas, Waste Connections’ district manager. “They’re noticeably quieter.”The company has a nationwide system of compressed natural gas infrastructure, but the program had never reached Clark County until now. The new station draws from an existing gas line in the ground, then sends the gas through an on-site compressor. The fuel is then pumped into the trucks, usually through a slower overnight fueling process.The trucks look slightly different than the rest of the fleet. The fuel tank is positioned on top of the vehicle, each able to power the truck with the equivalent of 75 gallons of diesel fuel. The cheaper cost of natural gas is one of the key factors contributing to the technology’s popularity, said Tim Hurst, a regional sales manager with manufacturer Labrie Enviroquip Group.Just a few years ago, compressed natural gas trucks accounted for about 5 to 10 percent of Labrie’s business, Hurst said. Now it’s closer to 25 percent.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Mike Pence signed an amendment to the state’s 2013 breast density reporting bill Wednesday expanding the requirements for notification. The amended law goes into effect July 1, 2016.The state had previously enacted Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 414 three years ago, which required notification in the mammography report if a patient was determined to have dense fibroglandular breast tissue. SEA 414 also required the provision of insurance coverage for supplemental screening for women at least 40 years old determined to have high breast density.“We never considered it a density reporting bill as the wording stated that women would be notified about their dense tissue only if they needed further follow-up or testing,” said Nancy Cappello, Ph.D., director and founder of advocacy group Are You Dense of the existing legislation. “Density reporting should not be contingent on anything other than reporting the woman’s breast tissue composition.”The new amendment, designated House Bill (HB) 1272, removes the specific language that only required notification if high breast density was determined. All mammography reports must now include information about fibroglandular breast density, regardless of whether or not the patient is determined to be fibroglandularly dense.With the approval, Indiana becomes the 25th state to adopt a full breast density notification law. Three other states — New Hampshire, Vermont and Mississippi — have introduced bills in 2016, and a total of eight states are currently debating similar legislation.For more information: www.areyoudenseadvocacy.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 read morelast_img read more

Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder

first_imgWashington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder (80) pulls in a touchdown pass during the first half of an NFL football game against Arizona Cardinals in Landover, Md., Sunday, Dec 17, 2017. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Add one more to Chandler Jones’ sack total. He’s got 15 when he dropped Cousins on a 3rd-and-6 play in the second quarter. Jones is the first Cardinals player with 15.0+ sacks in a season since Simeon Rice established the franchise single-season record with 16.5 in 1999. Jones now has at least one sack in 12 of 14 games this season.Against the league’s seventh-worst rush defense, the Cardinals topped the century mark for the fourth straight game, their best stretch of the season. They finished with 141 yards. Kerwynn Williams had 61 yards on 17 carries, while Elijhaa Penny went for 45 yards on 10 carries. The Redskins entered the game allowing 122.0 rushing yards per game.THE BADNinety seconds. The Cardinals trailed early after Cousins threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder for a 7-0 lead at the 13:30 mark of the first quarter. It was his NFL-leading fifth touchdown toss on the team’s opening possession, and it was all set up by Anthony Lanier’s strip-sack of Gabbert. The fumble was recovered by Preston Smith, who returned it to the Cardinals 6-yard line.Red-zone execution. Four times in the first half the Cardinals traveled inside the 20-yard line and four times they were held without a touchdown. They instead settled for three field goals — 40, 35 and 19 yards, the latter as the half ended — and also turned the football over when Gabbert was picked off by Smith on what was 1st-and-goal at the Redskins’ 9-yard line. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires It’s hard to win ballgames when your opponent scores touchdowns and you don’t.For the second straight week, the Arizona Cardinals went an entire game without finding their way across the goal line and into the end zone.The drought stretches all the way back to Dec. 3 against Los Angeles, a span of 10 consecutive quarters.What points the Cardinals did score Sunday belonged to Phil Dawson. He kicked five field goals in the 20-15 defeat to the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. The loss officially eliminated the Cardinals (6-8) from playoff contention.Chances? The Cardinals had plenty. Six times they entered the red zone and six times they came up empty, failing to score a touchdown.Blaine Gabbert was intercepted once, and Dawson scored five field goals on the remaining trips deep into Washington territory.Gabbert, making his fifth straight start, committed two turnovers. He fumbled on the game’s first possession and was sacked five times working behind an offensive line that welcomed two new starters.The quarterback went 16-of-41 for 189 yards.Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, meanwhile, wasn’t much better. He passed for 196 yards, completing 18-of-26 attempts, and two touchdowns to help Washington (6-8) snap a two-game losing streak.The Cardinals have lost their last eight visits to the nation’s capital.THE GOODFour times Larry Fitzgerald was targeted on the Cardinals’ first scoring drive. He caught three of them. The third, a 14-yard gain, was his 90th reception of the season. Fitzgerald has now caught at least 90 balls in a season eight times in his career, extending his own NFL record. No other player in NFL history has more than six seasons with 90 or more receptions.center_img Top Stories – Khalif Barnes, signed off the street this week, played a handful of snaps as an extra offensive lineman.– Twice the Cardinals converted on 4th down, and twice they had Gabbert quarterback sneak the ball.– Among the Cardinals’ listed inactives were players John Brown, Jermaine Gresham and Earl Watford.UP NEXTIt’s the final home game of the season.The Cardinals host the New York Giants on Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24.

offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom By Murray Newlands A lot of people believe that the true leadership capacity of a person is tested during times of crisis Performance under stress can show how quick witted or level headed a person is or on the contrary it can show where their weaknesses lie As a business owner or as an entrepreneur it’s important that you always keep your wits about you and stay cool in difficult situations These are the five things that every successful leader does in times of crisis and traits to you should always keep in mind when running a business Successful Leaders Don’t Let Their Emotions Get In The Way The most important thing to do during a crisis is to

crisis by being overwhelmed by stress which turns to fear It is easy to be afraid when you have a crisis situation in your business as it is your entire livelihood on the line but if you remain brave then your employees will be too and together a strong team will be able to turn anything around Successful Leaders Are Accountable For Their Victories And Their Losses Good leaders own up to when they make mistakes After all we are all human and someone who is too proud to admit their own mistake is not likely to be someone that others will follow Taking responsibility for any actions that you have taken that could have contributed to the crisis will be a good way to prompt your employees into working on the situation with you wholeheartedly instead of just because they have to Successful Leaders Don’t Take Failures Personally By separating your personal feelings from the matter at hand you are better able to focus on what is happening and take care of it in a manner that is going to be most successful for you your employees and the rest of your business Crises can also bring out power dynamics in the workplace and a successful leader does not let those office politics get in the way of taking care of business Successful Leaders Possess Positive Attitudes From Start To Finish The end of the crisis is not just when you pull yourself out of the muck that it had put you in The end of the crisis is when the team has started to recover and is moving on which might take a bit Keeping a positive attitude on your face and pushing the excellence of your team will keep morale high
