UN chief hails transformative power of womens economic empowerment

“Women’s economic empowerment contributes to more stable and resilient economies, and more peaceful societies,” Mr. Guterres said in his remarks to the meeting of the High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment, held at UN Headquarters. “It is also a necessary condition for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,” he added, referring to the set of goals world leaders pledged to achieve by 2030 to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Today’s event, entitled “Leave No One Behind: Actions and Commitments for Women’s Economic Empowerment,” was meant to take forward the recommendations made by the High-Level Panel in a report released in March of this year. It is the time to take concrete measures to realize our shared vision of gender equality and women’s rights in the economy.The report stressed that building women’s economic empowerment must be done in ways that leaves nobody behind, particularly the most marginalized women at the bottom of the pyramid. It also acknowledged that gender inequalities remain persistent across the world, but they can be overcome if barriers are removed.In his remarks, Mr. Guterres noted that currently, only 50 per cent of women of working age are in the labour force – compared to 77 per cent of men. In addition, women tend to be concentrated also in informal and precarious employment, and they are paid on average 23 per cent less than men and carry out at least two and a half times more unpaid household and care work.“This is not only detrimental to women, it represents a loss for society as a whole,” he told the gathering, which included the participation of Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde and UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. “Studies show that, if women were able to participate equally in the economy, global GDP could increase by 26 per cent – the equivalent of $12 trillion dollars – by 2025,” he went on to note.Mr. Guterres called for translating the Panel’s guidance into actions that will bring results for women and girls. “It is the time to take concrete measures to realize our shared vision of gender equality and women’s rights in the economy.”Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka highlighted some of the actions taken by UN Women to address the work of the Panel, including the launch of the Unstereotype Alliance, with 20 major companies that have the biggest marketing and advertising budgets in the world – from Unilever to Google, to AT&T to Procter & Gamble and Facebook. “Their goal is to transform themselves so that they do not perpetuate stereotypes against women through their advertising and marketing,” she noted.UN Women also launched a flagship programming initiative called, “Making Every Woman and Girl Count,” which focuses on data collection and ensuring that it can provide disaggregated data to track the implementation of the SDGs.She also noted some of the areas where efforts need to be beefed-up, such as the need for more countries to ratify the ILO Convention on domestic workers, and addressing the rights of women with disabilities and those affected by conflict. read more

Better care stronger laws needed to save 30 million babies on the

The report, “Survive and Thrive: Transforming care for every small and sick newborn,” finds that babies with complications from being born premature, or suffering brain injury during childbirth, severe bacterial infection or jaundice, risk death and disability.Furthermore, the financial and psychological toll on their families can effect their cognitive, linguistic and emotional development.“For every mother and baby, a healthy start from pregnancy through childbirth and the first months after birth is essential,” said Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Deputy Director General for Programmes at WHO, lauding universal health coverage to ensure that everyone, including newborns, has access to the health services they need, regardless of the ability to pay.“Progress on newborn healthcare is a win-win situation: it saves lives and is critical for early child development thus impacting on families, society, and future generations,” she added.The report revealed that some 2.5 million newborns died in 2017, mostly from preventable causes. Nearly two-thirds were premature. Should these babies survive, they often face chronic diseases or developmental delays. Figures disclose that an estimated one million small and sick newborns survive each year with a long-term disability.A brighter tomorrow, with better strategiesThe good news is that these babies can live without major complications if smarter strategies are employed, such as providing team care for both mother and baby through labour, birth and beyond, to catch problems and issues early. The report projects optimistically, that the lives of 2.9 million women, stillborns and newborns in 81 countries can be saved by 2030.According to the report, for the world to achieve the global target of quality healthcare for all, newborn services must be transformed. Without rapid progress, some countries will not meet this target for another 11 decades.The report recommends:Providing 24/7 inpatient care for newborns.Instituting partnerships between families and trained nurses for hands-on care.Teaching parents and families effective baby care to reduce stress, help babies gain weight and allow their brains to develop correctly.Moreover, country policies should include quality health care and a lifelong investment for those born small or sick. Just 20 cents per person can save two of every three newborns in low- and middle-income countries by 2030.The report spells out that it is time for all countries to put in place the legislative, medical, human and financial resources to ensure the highest standard of health care, guaranteed by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. “When it comes to babies and their mothers, the right care at the right time in the right place can make all the difference,” said Omar Abdi, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director. “Yet,” he continued, “millions of small and sick babies and women are dying every year because they simply do not receive the quality care that is their right, and our collective responsibility.” read more

AI Tool Quicksilver Fills Gaps in Wikipedia Knowledge

first_imgStay on target It’s not exactly news that women are overlooked and underappreciated.But thanks to a new machine learning system, female scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (among other professionals) will finally get their digital due.San Francisco-based Primer is using artificial intelligence to fill in existing gaps in human-generated knowledge—starting with notable ladies like Canadian roboticist Joelle Pineau, addiction treatment researcher Miriam Adelson, and Evelyn Wang, head of MIT’s MechE department.None of whom, until this month, had articles on English Wikipedia. Yet, someone took the time to curate a “list of people who have lived at airports” for the online encyclopedia.“I didn’t discover those people on my own. I used a machine learning system we’re building,” John Bohannon, director of science at Primer, wrote in a recent blog post. “It discovered and described them for me.”(And the Internet created entries for him.)“It does this much as a human would, if a human could read 500 million news articles, 39 million scientific papers, all of Wikipedia, and then write 70,000 biographical summaries of scientists,” Bohannon added.It’s called Quicksilver. And it’s an homage to Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle novel series, which imagines technology that captures all human information “in a vast encyclopedia that will be a sort of machine, not only for finding old knowledge but for making new.”Trained on 30,000 English Wikipedia articles about scientists, their Wikidata entries, and more than 3 million sentences from news documents, as well as the names and affiliations of 200,000 authors of scientific papers, Quicksilver produced shocking results.“In the morning we found 40,000 people missing from Wikipedia who have a similar distribution of news coverage as those who do have articles,” Bohannon said. “Quicksilver doubled the number of scientists potentially eligible for a Wikipedia article overnight.”Launched more than 17 years ago, Wikipedia remains one of the largest and most popular general reference works on the Internet. But it takes a lot of upkeep; every article must be meticulously cited and regularly updated—forever.Despite a decade of attempts, no one has managed to crack the code for computer-generated passages. And Primer doesn’t plan to, either.Rather than use the World Wide Web “as an academic testbed for summarization algorithms,” Bohannon said, the firm is working on a system “that can be used for building and maintaining knowledge bases” like Wikipedia.As an experiment, Primer is publishing a sample of 100 short Quicksilver-generated summaries of scientists missing from Wikipedia.“We’re curious how long it will take before someone creates their articles,” Bohannon said.In the span of about a week, all three women mentioned in his blog have since been covered on the site.

UPDATE Authorities BuildUp Profile of Las Vegas Gunman Still No Motive Established

first_imgHeadliner Jason Aldean took to social media to speak to fans a day after a gunman opened fire during his set at a country music festival.Aldean wrote on Instagram that his “heart aches for the victims and their families.”Sixty-four-year-old Stephen Paddock rained bullets down on the tens of thousands of people who were watching Aldean perform. The attack killed 59 and wounded 527.The country star pleaded for people to stand together and “stop the hate.”Authorities have not yet disclosed a motive for the attack.__ White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has singled out a Philadelphia financial planner as a hero during Sunday night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.Sanders told reporters Monday that Mike McGarry lay atop younger people at the country music concert targeted by a gunman in a nearby hotel.McGarry told KYW-TV that he did it because, “I’m 53, they’re in their 20s. I lived a decent life so far, I’d rather them live longer than me.”McGarry didn’t realize he’d been praised nationally because he was on a flight home when Sanders addressed the media. He says his wife, a registered nurse, was more of a hero than him — putting a tourniquet on one of those wounded.McGarry says, “We’re just trying to help other people. I don’t think I did anything spectacular.”___ More than a dozen investigators, most wearing jackets marked “FBI” and all in blue protective booties, arrived in unmarked sedans and entered the concert site Tuesday to pick through the scene for clues.The site inspection was visible by The Associated Press videographers from the 35th floor of the Mandalay Bay tower — three floors above the suite where Stephen Craig Paddock launched his barrage and later killed himself.Authorities say 59 people were killed and more than 500 were injured Sunday night.Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt compared the scene with a war zone. Laxalt is a former U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps member.“Shoes, baby strollers, chairs, sunglasses, purses. The whole field was just littered with things,” Laxalt said Monday. “There were blood stains everywhere.”___ Al Powers/Invision/APPeople hold hands in prayer while hiding inside an airplane hangar after a mass shooting in which dozens were killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.THE LATEST ON THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING: President Donald Trump is calling the man who killed 59 people and wounded hundreds others at a music festival in Las Vegas a “very, very sick individual.”Trump spoke to reporters Tuesday as he departed for a trip to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. He called the gunman “demented” and said “we’re looking into him very seriously.”Trump also praised Las Vegas police, saying they had done an “incredible job.”Trump stressed that the shooting was a tragedy. Asked about gun laws, the president said “we’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes by.”___ Hospital officials say Tuesday that at least 45 people remain in critical condition after being wounded at a mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival on Sunday.Sunrise Hospital has 33 people and University Medical Center has 12 people still in critical condition as of Tuesday morning.Authorities say Stephen Craig Paddock killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others when he opened fire Sunday night on an outdoor country music concert from a 32nd floor hotel tower.A motive is unknown.At Sunrise, a total of 68 people remain hospitalized out of the 214 initially admitted. Officials say 15 people have died there.Officials say a total of 60 people remain hospitalized out of the 104 who were taken to University Medical. Four have died.___ Authorities say the gunman in the Las Vegas shooting set up cameras inside and outside the hotel room where he opened fire on the crowd at a country music concert.Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a news conference Tuesday that he believes shooter Stephen Craig Paddock set up the cameras to see if anyone was coming to take him into custody. He did not release further details.The sheriff also said authorities had completed their investigation at the gunman’s property in Reno, finding five handguns, two shotguns and a plethora of ammunition.Authorities say Paddock killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others when he opened fire Sunday night on an outdoor country music concert from a 32nd floor hotel tower.Hospital officials say 50 people remain in critical condition after being wounded.___The Las Vegas gunman who killed nearly 60 people at a country music festival worked as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, an IRS agent and in an auditing department over a 10-year period.A spokeswoman for the Office of Personnel Management told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Stephen Paddock’s employment included about two years as a mail carrier from 1976 to 1978.After that, he worked as an agent for the Internal Revenue Service for six years until 1984. And then he worked a defense auditing job for about 18 months.The information helped complete the timeline surrounding the 64-year-old Paddock’s life. He graduated from college in 1977 from Cal State Northridge and also worked for a defense contractor in the late 1980s.___A concertgoer from Washington state says he hid under bleachers with his wife when shots rang out in Las Vegas and victims started falling to the ground.Jeff Bannerman told KOMO News Radio “just when you thought the thing was over, the rat-a-tat-tat would start again. So, we just absolutely were paralyzed underneath the bleachers.”A man in front of Bannerman was shot and a garbage can that Bannerman had been leaning on was hit.Bannerman and his wife Deanna joined others trying to help victims who could not move, dragging them “wherever you could to get them out of the way.”He says he had blood on his hands and shoes and one of the women he tried to help “didn’t make it.”___ Less than 24 hours after the massacre at an open-air country music concert in Las Vegas, authorities are still piecing together what shooter Stephen Paddock did in preparation for his deadly shooting rampage that left 59 people dead and 527 others injured.There is still a lot they don’t know about what motivated Paddock, described by officials as a “lone wolf,” to launch the most deadly mass shooting in modern U.S. history.In a news conference Monday afternoon, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said his deputies are still processing four crime scenes: the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, from where Paddock shot his victims about 500 yards below; the venue at the Route 91 Harvest festival concert; Paddock’s home in Mesquite, NV, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas; and another home in Reno in northern Nevada.Lombardo initially said that 16 weapons were found in Paddock’s hotel room, where he had been staying since Sept. 28. Scopes were attached to “some of the rifles,” he added without more detail. Investigators found an additional 18 firearms in Paddock’s Mesquite home, as well as several thousand rounds of ammunition and explosives. They also found several pounds of ammonium nitrate, a key component for making a bomb, in Paddock’s car.Still, the investigation is fast-moving and fluid as, four hours later, the gun count increased. In an early evening news conference, Assistant Sheriff Todd Fasulo said that 23, not 16, weapons had been found in the Mandalay Bay hotel room and 19, not 18 weapons had been discovered in Paddock’s Mesquite home.Also, the office of Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Calif.) said that he had been briefed by the FBI and informed that some, but not all of the weapons found in the hotel room were fully automatic. It was not clear whether those weapons were manufactured as fully automatic or whether Paddock had converted them.Law enforcement officers had conducted a floor by floor search beginning on the 29th floor. Upon arriving at Paddock’s suite on the 32nd floor, they announced themselves. Paddock responded by shooting through the door, wounding a security guard in the leg, Lombardo said.“They received gunfire. They backed off and SWAT responded,” said a somber Lombardo. They entered the room to find Paddock dead. The sheriff said investigators believe Paddock killed himself.Lombardo also said that he had dispatched a SWAT team to examine Paddock’s house in northern Nevada to make sure there are no booby traps.Many questions remain unanswered.Lombardo said investigators still have not identified Paddock’s motive for the shooting. Paddock’s brother, Eric Paddock, of Orlando, FL, said he was a wealthy retired accountant and high stakes gambler.“There’s no political affiliation that we know of. There’s no religious affiliation that we know of,” Eric Paddock told reporters earlier in the day.Investigators also don’t know how Paddock managed to assemble such a large arsenal of weapons in his hotel suite. Lombardo said that his team is still working on the origins of the arsenal, saying that one gun dealer in Nevada has stepped forward to say that he had sold one firearm to Paddock. When asked whether he would characterize Paddock’s firearms as “assault weapons,” Lombardo simply said, “Yes.”Earlier in the day, President Trump, appearing before reporters at the White House, said that he would visit Las Vegas on Wednesday.He called the mass shooting “an act of pure evil,” adding “In moments of tragedy and horror, America comes together as one — and it always has.”The mayor of Las Vegas, Carolyn Goodman, summed up the mood of the many local and state officials gathered for an afternoon news conference.“It is a very difficult time. While the sun is shining in Las Vegas, it is a very dark and black day,” she said. Sharelast_img read more

First Came Kylie Then Rihanna Now Chrissy Will Snap Get Slapped on

first_imgTeigen has commented on the redesign in the past, tweeting that one of the most widely reported criticisms — that celebrities are now relegated to a separate part of the friends list than before — had merit.“How many people have to hate an update for it to be reconsidered?” she asked. Earlier in March, a Snapchat game called “Would You Rather?” posted an ad asking users whether they’d rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown. Rihanna called Snapchat out in an Instagram post, writing “Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance but I know you ain’t that dumb. You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!!”Snapchat apologized for the ad, and banned the advertiser that posted it, but its stock prices still fell almost five percent. And that’s not the first time celebrities have caused Snapchat’s value to take a hit either: Kylie Jenner tweeted in February, post-redesign, that she doesn’t open Snapchat anymore, which Bloomberg wrote cost Snapchat $1.3 billion in market value. Popular on Variety Just over a week after its stock prices dipped following a controversial Snapchat ad that made reference to Rihanna’s assault at the hands of Chris Brown, Snap could be headed for another Wall Street shakedown.Chrissy Teigen announced Saturday via Twitter that she will no longer be using the app due in part to the ad, and cited the latest update, which has received widespread criticism, as another reason for her departure.“The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll…no bueno,” Teigen wrote.center_img I’m seeing this same comment so often. I liked that you guys felt like we were friends. I’m sad it doesn’t feel like that anymore. How many people have to hate an update for it to be reconsidered? https://t.co/PI7OAf9Qlg— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 9, 2018The redesign has received unwavering support from Snap CEO Evan Spiegel, however, who said “some of the complaints we are seeing are reinforcing our philosophy.”Whether Teigan’s exit bears enough weight to cause the same result as Jenner’s — she has 9.97 million Twitter followers compared to Jenner’s 25.1 million — remains to be seen, but Snapchat could be in for a surprise come Monday’s open. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week Rosanna Calvierri

first_imgStay on target ‘Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Mire’Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Zygon You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels, and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad. It’s off to 16th century Italy for a not-so-romantic romp with some very thirsty aliens.Rosanna Calvierri (Helen McCrory) stays hydrated (via BBC)ROSANNA CALVIERRI/SISTERS OF THE WATERFirst appearance: “The Vampires of Venice” (2010)—season 5, episode 6Home planet: SaturnyneDoctor: EleventhCompanions: Amy Pond, Rory Williams“We are in Venice and it is 1580,” Rory, plucked from his bachelor party, exclaims.“I know!” Amy giggles back.In an effort to get his coquettish companion to focus on her relationship with her fiancé, the Eleventh Doctor take Amy and Rory on the ultimate romantic getaway.But, as can happen, giant blood-sucking space fish, intent on flooding Venice to save their species, put a damper on the adventure.Signora Calvierri’s school for girls is a front for vampires (via BBC)The Floating City, founded hundreds of years before by refugees running from Attila the Hun, is under quarantine—at the instruction of patron Rosanna Calvierri (played by the sinisterly great Helen McCrory), claiming protection from the Black Plague (which, the Doctor points out, ended years ago).Already suspicious, the Time Lord soon meets half a dozen “pale, creepy girls, who don’t like sunlight and can’t be seen” in a mirror.“Am I thinking what I think I’m thinking?” he muses, before being warned by the ominous adolescents—”students” at Signora Calvierri’s mysterious school—who bare their pointy teeth in ire.It is immediately clear that Calvierri and her son, Francesco (Alex Price), are not to be trusted. Still, that doesn’t stop Amy from infiltrating the school to let her friends in for further investigation.The Calvierris, Rosanna (Helen McCrory) and son Francesco (Alex Price) (via BBC)Bound, and probed by Rosanna and Francesco, Amy—once bitten but not at all shy—fights back, kicking her captor’s hip and dislodging a perception filter, which briefly unveils Calvierri’s true form: a sea-dwelling refugee from the destroyed world of Saturnyne.Hidden behind a human facade, the shapeshifting predators sustain their dying species by drinking the blood of female victims and replacing it with alien fluids.Gradually, the women transform into a Saturnynian (or are spared by death), ready to mate with the “ten thousand husbands” waiting in the waters of Venice.It’s not polite to eat with your mouth open (via BBC)Amy escapes her fate, however. And after their new cohort Guido (father of Isabella, whose betrayal leads to her death) sacrifices himself to destroy the converted vampires, Rosanna goes full throttle, activating the final phase of her plan: create a storm of boiling rain to sink Venice.(The irony being that the city was built by emigrants looking for a fresh start—much like the displaced Saturnynians.)Signora Calvierri is the last of her species (via BBC)The Doctor, of course, miraculously manages to disable her machinery, while Amy and Rory overdose Francesco on vitamin D—leaving Calvierri, stuck in human form, with no hope of rebuilding her species.Not out of contrition but out of grief, the matron, unrecognizable to her own children, throws herself into the canal to be devoured by hungry offspring.Rosanna Calvierri and her family, however, are not the first vampiric creatures our favorite Time Lord has encountered: In “State of Decay,” the Fourth Doctor meets blood-sucking aliens, and Sylvester McCoy’s seventh incarnation battled water-residing leech-like creatures called Haemovores in “The Curse of Fenric.”center_img Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

27 inches of Voltron will cost you 1250

first_imgWhen you’ve been labeled defender of the universe, it’s only natural that people will come up with some very elaborate and very pricey ways to celebrate your existence. Like $1,250 statuettes.The artisans at Sideshow have painstakingly crafted this incredibly detailed Voltron figure. He stands an imposing 27 inches tall, sword in hand, and ready to vanquish whatever intergalactic foe it is that he’s spied somewhere in the distance. Or maybe he’s looking scornfully at anyone who questions his price tag?There really is a phenomenal amount of detail on Sideshow’s maquette. It bears the scars and scorch marks of countless confrontations, and Voltron’s visible mechanical components look incredibly realistic. There’s some nice close-up shots in the video:Though it’s shown here as a single magnificent piece, Sideshow’s creation is actually made up of 106 individual parts. Pay for one of the extremely limited figures, though, and they’ll take care of most of the assembly for you. You’ll only have 11 pieces to fit together to make your massive Voltron maquette display-ready.As nice as the maquette is, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that $1,250 is a bit more than a great number of Voltron fans want to pay for something like this. Fortunately, there’s a very nice alternative — and one that oozes retro awesomeness.Remember this die-cast bad boy? You can still find them on the Internet without too much difficulty, and they tend to sell for a much more reasonable price. There are a few for sale on Amazon right now for about $300, as a matter of fact. Or you could always hold off and pray that Lego does the right thing and greenlights this amazing Ideas set.Voltron: Legendary Defender is the new 13-episode series, and it starts tomorrow on Netflix.last_img read more

Who do the wiseguys like this NFL Season RJ Bell in The

first_img Advertisement The public are marks. The Wiseguys have the info. It’s written in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The NFL season is rapidly approaching and the wagers are flying in on season win totals and Super Bowl futures. So, why throw darts at a board when you can at least look like you know what you’re talking about while you explain to your wife how you lost your shirt.RJ Bell from Pregame.com joined The Herd and gave his preseason report to Colin on who the boys in the desert like this year in the NFL.Which teams does Vegas like to breakout this year and why?Every year in the NFL, teams breakthrough to make a playoff run after missing out the year before. Last year the Panthers went from 7-8 to 15-1 seemingly out of nowhere. The main factors that the experts use to predict a turnaround like the Panthers are simple: 1. Turnover margin – Turnovers are basically a fluke. If a team has a ton of takeaways one year, the following year is usually the statistical correction. Fumbles lost, bad deflections. Vegas says these things work themselves out.This year the two teams that fit the bill are the Jaguars and the Buccaneers. The Bucs were 22nd in the NFL i turnover margin, the Jags were 29th. With improving quarterbacks, offensive turnovers should go down. Add a couple of takeaways and it adds up to wins.2. Quarterback play – Who has the up and coming, breakout quarterback? Last year it was Cam Newton, this year it Vegas likes Blake Bortles and Jameis Winston to take big steps on improving teams.RJ says one respected odds maker would take Winston over Andrew Luck if he had ot pick one qurterback to start a franchise for the next 10 years.3. Close games – Teams can’t win every close game. They can’t lose every close game either. The Panthers were 6 –  1 in games decided by a touchdown or less last year. That can’t happen all the time, regardless of the quality of the team winning them. The Bucs and Jags have taken some tough L’s, but with steady QB’s, they should start turning some of the tough losses into wins.Vegas loves.The surprise teams Vegas loves this year are the Jags and the Bucs. Tampa Bay has an over/under season win total of 7, VEGAS LOVES THE OVER.  Jacksonville has Jacksonville at 7.5 wins. TAKE THE OVER.Vegas is down on.The Rams. Too much hype and attention around the move from St. Louis to LA create unrealistic expecations for a roster that isn’t equipped ot meet them. Rookie QB’s don’t start strong, even if rookie first pick Jared Goff exceeds expectations, he’ll still struggle.  They also only have 7 home games this season. It all adds up to UNDER 7.5 wins.Who is the public heavy on this season?The public loves Dallas. It’s something about the star. Sharks bet wins, the Public bets the super bowl futures.  The ‘Boys are currently at 24/1 to win the Super Bowl. rafting stud rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott increases the hype and the public is gobbling it up.  Sharps don’t like Dallas defensive talent and depth and think the public is overly optimistic as usual.Another tidbit showing the public doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing is that the Patriots have better odds now to win the AFC than before the Brady’s Deflategate suspension. Because they’re better without him, right?Colin loves the Raiders, what does Vegas think about the Silver and Black?Vegas doesn’t entirely agree with Colin’s optimism. They have the Raiders third in the AFC West at 3/1.Kansas City         +180Denver                 +200Oakland               +300San Diego            +700There is excitement about the Raiders, though. CG technologies, the biggest bookmaker in Vegas, has taken more bets on the Raiders to win the division than any other team . The Raiders also wont play an away game from Oct 30 to December 8. A 40 day home stand should help the cause.The NFL is finally here. Every gambler is still undefeated. Don’t be a mark.last_img read more

Bus operator DG turns 20 And heres how it got its name

first_img “Gerald was my best friend and business partner. When we originally started the company we had the buses entirely blue, but after 12 months we added the cream. “We also wanted the business to be seen as friendly. When Gerald was on the buses he realised people wanted to be helped. We want that friendly nature to come across today, as well as our reliability. We don’t just want to be seen as a business and we do that by keeping relatively small.” David Reeves and Gerald Henderson with an early D&G bus. (Image: Stoke Sentinel) Gerald, originally from Crewe, passed away in 2006, aged 46, and the 20th anniversary buses will also have a tribute to the D&G co-founder. David, aged 59, said: “I’m very proud and we never thought we would make it to 20 years. We started with four buses and the fact we have two depots now is remarkable. It has been a rollercoaster but it has been fun. “We came up with the name by taking a letter each, we hadn’t even heard of Dolce and Gabbana! When we started I was working in the ambulance service and we wanted a job for Gerald – but in 2001 I had to go full time at the company because we had 24 buses. 29 lost nostalgia pictures of Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffordshire and South Cheshire by renowned Sentinel photographer Ted Stringer View gallery The 20th anniversary D&G bus.

He added: “Austerity measures hit us hard. We had to make significant changes but since September we are now stable and are looking forward to the future. I am very optimistic about it.” Read MoreShould under-25s be given free bus travel… here’s what you think The original D&G bus routes included two-off peak services along with a school journey for St Gregory’s Catholic Academy, in Longton, and an evening route between Hanley and Newcastle. center_img Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailBus company D&G is celebrating its 20th anniversary by unveiling a vehicle donned with the firm’s original blue and cream livery. Formed by friends David Reeves and Gerald Henderson the company began trading on September 6, 1998 with just four buses. Today that figure has been well and truly eclipsed with 84 based across depots in Adderley Green and Northwich. The name D&G came from their first initials – and David says the duo had never even heard of fashion design Dolce and Gabbana when they chose it. Originally they wanted to start the business to help Gerald find permanent work. But as the firm expanded David had to leave the ambulance service and focus full-time on the company. A modern D&G bus Now the firm employs more than 200 members of staff covering areas as far north as Altrincham and as south as Rugeley. The blue and cream has now been replaced with a bright red, although some of the buses can be seen decked out in orange, blue or yellow.

The company will also be running a ‘golden ticket’ prize draw for passengers to win one of 20 free tickets that can be used across the network. Bus passengers have welcomed the company’s milestone. The bus pays tribute to Gerald. (Image: D&G) Julie Adams, of Werrington, said: “It has always been a good service and the D&G drivers are helpful and friendly. It’s good to see it has run in the Potteries for that long and it has always been a good service.” Dorothy and David Poole regularly get the bus between Hanley and Northwood. Dorothy said: “The drivers are always friendly and if they see you running for the bus they will wait. You can have a laugh with them at times as well.” David added: “It is nice to talk to the drivers and we do when we get them.”last_img read more

Canadians and dual citizens not affected by Trump ban but anxiety still

first_img OTTAWA — The Trudeau government has received assurances that Canadian passport holders will not be caught up in an American travel ban that has barred citizens of seven countries from entering the United States.According to the CBC, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said Sunday that the White House has assured that permanent residents of Canada can enter the U.S. with a valid Canadian permanent resident card and passport from one of the seven affected countries (Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Libya).United States President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday that barred people from these seven countries from entering the U.S. for three months, causing mass confusion and protests across the country. It was initially unclear whether Canadians who are also citizens of the affected countries would be allowed entry, as the State Department said that dual citizens were included in the ban.However, on Saturday night, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent an email saying that the U.S. has given assurances that Canadians with dual citizenship will not be turned away at the border.“We have been assured that Canadian citizens travelling on Canadian passports will be dealt with in the usual process,” said the email from Kate Purchase, Trudeau’s director of communications.More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTPurchase’s email also said Trudeau’s National Security Adviser Daniel Jean and other officials were in contact with their American counterparts, including Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.“NSA Flynn confirmed that holders of Canadian passports, including dual citizens, will not be affected by the ban,” Purchase said.Trump’s executive order also banned refugees from Syria indefinitely, pending a review of the application process.Bijan Ahmadi, president of the Iranian Canadian Congress, said he’s outraged by the new policy.“It’s unacceptable. It’s very unreasonable,” he said in an interview earlier Saturday before the situation regarding dual citizens was clarified. “It’s very discriminatory to target people based on their race, their religion, the country of their origin and the country of their birth. And the community has that same outrage.”“Everybody’s nervous, everybody of Somali origin and Muslim origin,” said Osman Ali, the Toronto-based director of the Somali Canadian Association of Etobicoke. “The community feels that it’s a way of targeting the Muslim community, the African community and the black Muslim community.”WestJet and Air Canada said they were waiving cancellation fees for people who hold passports from the affected countries. Air Canada said it expected that only a small handful of its passengers would be affected.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”Despite assurances from the Prime Minister, the opposition New Democrats are pressing for an emergency debate when the House of Commons resumes today.New Democrat MP Jenny Kwan wants to delve more deeply into how the American ban affects Canada and how the government plans to respond.Government House leader Bardish Chagger seemed open to a debate, but noted the decision is up to Commons Speaker Geoff Regan.U.S. officials are expected to hear firsthand today how Canadians feel about the ban that affects people from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Libya.At least two protests are planned, one outside the American embassy in Ottawa and the other at the U.S. Consulate in Toronto.The size of the demonstrations is unclear, but American diplomats are concerned enough that they have announced the consulate will temporarily suspend services to the public today.The U.S. State Department tweeted Sunday that American citizens should exercise caution today if they’re in the vicinity of the embassy in Ottawa.

The conversation with Rosen was good Kingsbur

None of those talks were recent, Schefter said.NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport also named Washington as a potential suitor for Rosen, but they selected a falling Haskins, who was viewed by many as the top quarterback in the draft.That came after the Dolphins used the 13th overall pick to take Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins. The Giants, who after drafting Jones sixth also held the 17th pick, used their second first-rounder to take Wilkins’ college teammate, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence.Arizona Cardinals2019 Draft BoardRoundPick #PlayerPos.11Kyler MurrayQB21Byron MurphyCB230Andy IsabellaWR31Zach AllenDE41Hakeem ButlerWR51Deionte ThompsonS61KeeSean JohnsonWR66Lamont GaillardC734*Joshua MilesT735*Michael DogbeDE740*Caleb WilsonTE* = Compensatory Selection© STATS – 2019 – / 52 25 Comments   Share   Daniel Jones #17 of the Duke Blue Devils rolls out against the Virginia Tech Hokies during their game at Wallace Wade Stadium on September 29, 2018 in Durham, North Carolina.

As it stands, that leaves the Miami Dolphins as one potential partner who could be interested in taking Rosen off Arizona’s hands. Miami GM Chris Grier side-stepped questions about Rosen while the first round of the draft was ongoing on Thursday night.“We’re investigating all avenues,” he told reporters. “We’re looking at all options at every position.”Related LinksRaiders blow up 2019 NFL Draft, make questionable decision againESPN: Cards have ‘no issues’ keeping Josh Rosen after drafting Kyler MurrayArizona Cardinals pick QB Kyler Murray 1st in 2019 NFL DraftPink pinstriped Kyler Murray, swaggy Devin Bush win NFL Draft red carpetThe Cardinals admitted they took trade calls about Rosen following the first round.General manager Steve Keim didn’t deny Arizona could potentially trade Rosen, but he made it clear the team open to keeping both Rosen and Murray heading into camp.“Bottom line is Josh is a really good football player. We’re not going to get in the business of letting good football players walk out of here,” Keim said.Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury wouldn’t address who between Rosen and Murray might be the favorite to become the starter. He spoke with Rosen on the phone before the team selected Murray and expected nothing on Rosen’s end will change; the Cardinals have lauded his professionalism throughout the draft process as the rumors that Arizona loved Murray mounted.center_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
