Most Raiders fans have probably accepted that the 2018 season was effectively over less than halfway through and that they might as well look ahead to 2019.Jon Gruden made it clear he’s about the future more than the present, maybe even as early as early September when he traded Khalil Mack, so why shouldn’t you be about the future, too?For any fans wanting the slightest of reasons to hold out hope amid a calamitous year, let’s have a look at five young players who will more likely than not …

A think tank has written to the Goa Director of Social Welfare, a nodal department for persons with disability, over an inordinate delay in notifying the draft rules for the implementation of the Rights of Persons with Disability Act, 2016, in the State.The Centre notified the Act in January, 2017. All States were given six months to frame rules and notify them. “The rules are far from notified in Goa, the State has missed the deadline several times, breaching the Central directive,” said Monika Singh of I-DARE, a registered think tank of activists and professionals working for persons with disability. “Having gone through the draft of the rules we feel a lot of issues need to be addressed. The problems therein will not only dilute the spirit of the Act, but are also likely to land departments and stakeholders in a quagmire when implemented,” the letter stated.I-DARE said the rules have not been framed for some sub-sections under Section 101 of the Act, and that the some don’t seem to be in sync with the Section. Apart from typographical and spelling errors, terminology used in the draft rules is offensive and derogatory to persons with disability. For example, the term ‘mentally retarded’ was used, which must be replaced with ‘persons with an intellectual disability’. The draft has specified persons from the field of science and medicine to head the research committee. However, I-DARE has pointed out that disability research is being carried out through allied fields, more robust than pure sciences and medicine. “We recommend that the rules be technically edited or checked by experts from fields like psychology, disability medicine and education,” the letter said.The group has asserted that rules need to be framed for the constitution and functioning of the search and selection committee for the appointment of a new Disability Commissioner. Details of the necessary infrastructure and human resource must be provided to avert a situation similar to when the past Commissioner resigned over non-cooperation and lack of infrastructure.The think tank sought to know the current status of notification of the drafted rules, the process to be followed and time frame for it.
zoom German port management company bremenports has received the green light from Bremen’s senate to become a member of the development company for the port construction project in Iceland. In May 2016, the Icelandic government signed an agreement with the municipalities of Langanesbyd and Vopnafjordur, the engineering company EFLA and bremenports to plan and construct a multipurpose port in Finnafjord in the northeastern region of Iceland.“Both the Icelandic government and the general public regard the Finnafjord Port Project (FFPP) as the country’s most important infrastructure project right now,” Martin Günthner, Bremen’s Senator for Economic Affairs and Ports, said.“Shipping and logistics will increase significantly in this part of the world in future. Iceland consequently wants to profit from this trend and establish a new port on the central Arctic shipping route,” the senator added.The business model for the Finnafjord port project initially envisages that the two municipalities will set up the Finnafjord Port Authority (FFPA), which will be responsible for granting licenses, for instance, to port owner and operators.Port development company Finnafjord Port Development (FFPD) will be officially founded in the first half of 2017, with initial shareholders including the two municipalities, EFLA and bremenports.“Comprehensive nautical and structural studies will be necessary before the project can make progress and these can only be conducted with external financial partners,” Robert Howe, bremenports Managing Director, said.Once completed, Finnafjord (Finnafjörður) port will serve as a deep sea port in the North Atlantic ocean for transshipment sailing the Northeast Passage or Northern Sea Route and as a base port for exploration and production (E&P) operations for the oil and gas industry.
