With the game destined for a draw, defender Willy Boly popped up in stoppage time to score the winner.Speaking after the game, Nuno said: “The performance wasn’t the best, we competed well but we were sloppy, we weren’t accurate when we should be and we’ve got to improve that. It’s a tough stadium and environment but we managed the game well and we kept pushing.”I was trying to find solutions with our substitutions, Adama [Traore] did well but we struggled with the final touch, that’s something we’ve got to improve.”We’ll keep on fighting, it’s a competitive group but we’ll just keep looking forward. We were in the Championship two years ago, we must be proud, the fans were superb tonight. We have to improve and keep believing in the things that we do.” last_img read more

Shaun King Provides Backstory For Winston Crab Legs Photo, Blasts People Criticizing The QB

first_imgShaun King clarifies James Winston and the crab legs story.Shaun King Crab LegsThursday night, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, posted an Instagram photo of himself celebrating his No. 1 selection in the NFL Draft with a plate full of crab legs. Normally, such a photo wouldn’t be newsworthy – but given the fact that Winston was caught shoplifting crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix last April, it didn’t go unnoticed. Winston, who was criticized heavily for the post, eventually took it down, reportedly at the request of his new employer.Former NFL quarterback Shaun King, who is dialed into the football scene in northern Florida, has provided a bit of backstory on the photo Friday morning. He says that the crab legs were a gift from Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch after Winston helped auction off a king crab at Mike Alstott’s charity auction earlier this year. He’s blasting people who have been critical of Winston.If people only knew how STUPID they sound killing this kid over that picture smdh— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015I was seated at the table right next to jameis at the mike alstott charity auction, when captain keith asked jameis to help him auction off— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015This huge king crab he had flown in for the event. Captain keith is from the deadliest catch show. I wasnt sure how jameis was gonna— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Handle the request, but it didnt faze the young man at all he simply said ok sure, we r here to help the alstott foundation right.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015That same captain keith in a gesture of thanks sent jameis and his family 25lbs of king crabs legs for his draft event last night.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Thats the backstory behind last nights picture for those of you who need to seriously have some self evaluation done— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015While the backstory may be a bit more heartwarming than many would have guessed, Winston likely still knew the reaction he’d get for the post. Whether it was worth it – well, that’s a question that the new Buccaneers quarterback can answer.last_img read more

Living under constant threat

first_imgMass shootings seem to have become a sad new normal in societies these days. On Friday morning, two shooting incidents were reported from the al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue and Linwood Masjid in Linwood, both in Christchurch, New Zealand, resulting in multiple fatalities. The Bangladesh cricket team members were present at the mosque when the shoot-out happened. Fortunately, they escaped unhurt. The third Test, which was scheduled to start at Hagley Oval on Saturday, has been cancelled. Players took to social media to express shock. Mass shootings are happening too often and at extremely unexpected venues like concerts, places of worship, even cafes and schools. And who are the targets? Anybody, actually. These incidents leave a deep impact on people including post-traumatic stress disorder. Certain debilitating psychiatric conditions may get chronic, like the survivor’s guilt, which can aggravate over time and become more difficult to treat. It is thus important to understand and consider the fears and feelings of not only children but also adults who are involved in such incidents. Very often, they have lifelong influences. Mass shootings definitely contribute to heightened societal anxiety, posing a hindrance towards effective solutions. Firsthand experience of gun violence in what should be a ‘safe place’ for them can be indeed challenging and overbearing. Violence and criminality are pervasive in popular social themes and mass murderers gain notoriety through non-stop deliberations, resulting in a culture where narratives of such shootings spread and gain momentum. Undoubtedly, such episodes evoke raw emotions. For prevention, the world has adopted a number of measures that are also endorsed by researchers and doctors. Some of them include tightening gun laws, identifying potentially dangerous people in a community, learning self-defence mechanisms, restricting depictions of mayhem in video games, social media or on prime-time television, a crackdown on bullying in schools and working towards a peaceful conflict resolution. But hate crimes are rising. And each time, such frightening cases have either close or distant association with white supremacy and far-right extremism. Regrettably, they are motivated by the victim’s ethnicity, religion, race and even gender. It is a very complicated and stubborn phenomenon where the perpetrators feel emboldened enough to disobey the law and carry out their acts of violence. Thus, only prayers are not enough. What we need are stricter laws against such acts of violence, regulations which can set a precedence of its own and be an emblematic example to society, taking us towards an enhanced pervasiveness of investigation and study of each of such acts. Behind every such action, the hate is real. And so is the threat.last_img read more

Variety key to succeed in T20 cricket Varun Aaron

first_imgNew Delhi: Rajasthan Royals pacer Varun Aaron feels the gentleman’s game is changing swiftly as batsmen today have many innovations in their kitty to cope with the bowlers. As a result, he feels that the bowlers should also come with new tricks and techniques, a thing he has focussed on in recent times. After being on the bench for most of the first-half, Aaron bowled a magnificent spell against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and played an instrumental role in his side’s three-wicket win. The Jharkhand pacer hogged the limelight after bowling an excellent inswinger to get rid of KKR opener Shubman Gill, who was completely beaten by a brilliant in-swinging knuckle ball. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuThe delivery from Aaron took a sharp turn and crashed into the stumps after taking a slight edge from Gill’s bat. Aaron felt the variations in his bowling is a result of his hard work and the better understanding of the game. The 29-year-old admitted that not featuring in the IPL last year helped him improve his bowling variations. “I think not playing IPL previous year really benefitted me. I used to do these (variations) all things before but as I had to play regular cricket, I didn’t get enough time to perfect it to the degree I wanted. Playing county cricket last year and getting lot of time from the mainstream Indian cricket gave me that time and platform to practise and perfect my variations. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters”I really enjoyed my time with Leicestershire. Yes, I am looking to play more county cricket,” he added. Aaron also believed the game of cricket is changing and along with the batsmen, bowlers also need to emerge with innovative ideas. “My bowling has evolved in the last one year. The game is changing rapidly as batsmen are coming with innovative shots and I feel the bowlers also need to step up and should have tricks under their sleeves, a thing which I have worked on since a while and I am glad it is coming out well now,” he revealed. Asked about not being given enough chance in the playing eleven of the Royals, Aaron said: “Yes, I was given a chance after ten games and was really looking to play since the start of the season. I did get a game before but just bowled one over. I was waiting for this chance and had been preparing from a long time.” Speaking on the wicket of Gill, which grabbed everyone’s attention, he said: “I just stuck to the basics and knew the Eden (Garden) wicket was going to suit the way I bowl because there was pace and carry. I bowled a knuckle ball as I knew it would swing with the new ball. I had been bowling it for quite some time. I just feel that it happened at the right time and the wicket also helped.” Aaron however, didn’t looked disappointed after not getting much chance. “I wouldn’t say I was disappointed as in any team the management thinks of certain permutations and combinations to win a game and if they thought of making other guys play, that is fine because at the end of the day it is their call.” “I still feel we have a good chance to qualify and if I can play a major role in making my team win the trophy, missing the first ten matches wouldn’t matter,” he added. The Royals had switched captains mid-way during this season as Ajinkya Rahane had to make way for Steve Smith but Aaron said their below par performance was not because of leadership. “Both Smith and Rahane are really good captains. We didn’t do well in the first half and I don’t think that was because of leadership issue. We lost games by small margins and a captain can’t control that,” he said.last_img read more

Egypt arrests head of Iranian TV channels Cairo bureau

first_imgCAIRO – Egypt’s “Journalists for reform” group, meanwhile, condemned the arrest as a “new blow to journalists.”Egyptian security forces on Thursday arrested the Cairo bureau director of Iranian satellite TV news channel Alalam.“Security forces raided the home of Ahmed al-Siyoufi and arrested him,” a security source told Anadolu Agency.The reason for al-Siyoufi’s arrest, however, remains unclear.The news channel confirmed the arrest, saying talks were currently underway with Egyptian Journalists Syndicate head Diaa Rashwan to determine the reason for al-Siyoufi’s sudden arrest.Egypt’s “Journalists for reform” group, meanwhile, condemned the arrest as a “new blow to journalists.”In a statement, the group described al-Siyoufi – an Egyptian national – as “an outspoken opponent of the [July 3] coup” that unseated elected president Mohamed Morsi and “a staunch supporter of constitutional legitimacy.”Egyptian security forces had briefly detained al-Siyoufi in July and confiscated broadcast equipment from Alalam’s Cairo office on allegations that the channel lacked official permission to operate in Egypt.last_img read more

New defensive coaches Larry Johnson Chris Ash ready to get started at

Defensive line coach Larry Johnson talks during an interview on National Signing Day Feb. 5 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editor Co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash talks with media on National Signing Day Feb. 5 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorWhen Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer gets into recruiting mode, it isn’t all about the players. He finds a way to woo coaches, too.After the departures of co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Everett Withers and defensive line coach Mike Vrabel, Meyer had two vital positions to fill on a defense that allowed an average of 377.4 yards per game and ranked No. 47 in the country.Now after hiring two new coaches — both of whom spent time at rival schools — Meyer said he is pleased with his new hires.“We replaced (Vrabel and Withers) with Larry Johnson and Chris Ash, but a couple of comments with those gentlemen we hired. First, they wanted to be here, they both had very, very good jobs and they wanted to be here,” Meyer said to the media Wednesday.Johnson, who takes over as defensive line coach after 18 years with Penn State, inherits a unit that is set to return all four starters and helped spearhead the country’s ninth ranked running defense.Johnson said he can’t wait for a chance to work with the group of players.“Just watching from afar and watching it on videotape, I think it’s a very talented young group,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I can’t wait to get my hands on them. I’ve had two chances to watch them and I’m like a little kid. It’s like I’ve got some new toys to play with. I’m really excited to impart my wisdom to these guys and see how they respond.”Junior Michael Bennett, sophomores Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington and freshman Joey Bosa totaled 24 of OSU’s 42 sacks this past season.Meyer said he took notice of Johnson when putting together his initial staff at OSU, but didn’t hire him at the time because of Vrabel.“Larry Johnson is a guy (I have) had great respect for (for) many years,” Meyer said. “Made a phone call two years ago when I was hired here in December whatever year that was, I called Larry. We discussed Ohio State, but then I made the decision to hire Mike Vrabel. We just didn’t have a spot. Noah Spence’s dad called and said Larry (Johnson) would like to talk to you about a position … And the communication was great. We went and met in Indianapolis … and it was a no-brainer on our end.”Although Johnson’s pedigree as a coach is impressive, his abilities as a recruiter find a way to be noticed.Johnson said it is his “brand” that allows him to recruit players well.“I think obviously it’s my niche but I think the brand that I have is, I’m a teacher, I’m a fundamental development kind of guy,” he said. “I want to develop players into outstanding people and players and I think that all goes together.”Although the defensive line heads into 2014 with momentum, the Buckeyes’ secondary — which is now headed by former Arkansas defensive coordinator and secondary coach Chris Ash — doesn’t have quite the same hype.The unit finished the year ranked No. 112 in the country with an average of 268 yards per game and also loses four regular contributors in redshirt-senior safeties Corey “Pitt” Brown and C.J. Barnett, senior safety Christian Bryant and redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby.Meyer said it is Ash’s job to work on the pass defense.“He’s got a serious responsibility. That’s to improve our pass defense. He’ll be in charge of the entire back end of our defense,” Meyer said.Ash — who was named co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach upon his arrival in Columbus — said Wednesday he understood what Meyer wanted out of him as a coach.“When we met first, he discussed his vision for the defense and what he wanted to see when the film was turned on … There has been a great tradition of outstanding defenses here at Ohio State, (but) the last couple years it just wasn’t to the level that they wanted. Coach wanted to make some changes and go a different direction,” Ash said.Ash added that he expects his team to play one way: at full throttle.“Well, you play fast, you play with reckless abandon, you’re fast, you’re physical, you throw your body around. You play without hesitation,” Ash said. “There’s no confusion, you know exactly what you’re doing. You can react to your key and there’s only one speed: it’s full speed. And that’s the way we gotta play.”In each of his last two seasons at Wisconsin, before he took the job at Arkansas for what ended up being his lone year there this past season, Ash coached defenses that finished in the top 20 in passing yards allowed per game.Even with the new additions to the coaching staff, Meyer said he plans on taking a more involved role in the defense in the coming seasons.“I’m going to be more involved than I ever have been, just to make sure that we get up to standard at Ohio State on (the) defensive side of the ball with emphasis on pass defense,” Meyer said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to get their 2014 season underway Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.But before the season kicks off, there are some things the coaches need to learn about being a part of the OSU program.“There’s so much to learn. I walked in the first day and someone said, ‘Hey coach, no blue pens,’ and I didn’t know that,” Johnson said. “So there’s a lot of little things that I’ve got to learn pretty fast when you’re talking the team up north … As far as football and all those things, that’s easy. The learning (of) the ins and outs of Ohio State football, that’s the challenge for me.”But even with all of the new things he has to learn, Johnson said at least one aspect of the change is a plus.“My wife said I look good in red, so that’s a good start.” read more

Ohio State mens basketball holds off Illinois on road 4839

Junior center Amir Williams (23) reaches up for a shot. OSU beat Illinois, 48-39, Feb. 15 at the State Farm Center in Champaign, Ill. Courtesy of Brenton Tse / The Daily IlliniAs March approaches and college basketball teams look to build their résumés, perhaps the most important thing any team can have is a short memory.Just four days after having a three-game winning streak snapped at home by archrival No.15 Michigan, 70-60, the Ohio State Buckeyes got back to their winning ways against Illinois, beating the Fighting Illini, 48-39.Despite a tough first half where the Buckeyes trailed by as many as six points — including a three-point margin at halftime — No. 22 OSU (20-6, 7-6, fifth in the Big Ten) would manage to fight its way back in the second half.Five points from junior forward LaQuinton Ross — who finished the game with nine points — followed by a 3-pointer from senior guard Aaron Craft was enough for OSU to take a 28-25 lead with 15:14 remaining. The Buckeyes would never trail again.Although the Fighting Illini (14-12, 3-10) would cut the lead to one at 30-29 with 12:19 left, OSU would score the next 12 points and secure its 20th win of the season. It is the ninth consecutive season OSU has won at least 20 games.Despite not playing in the final 10:13 of the first half, Craft finished the game with a game-high 14 points.Freshman forward Marc Loving and sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle would contribute for OSU off the bench, scoring eight and five points respectively.Illinois junior center Nnanna Egwu continued to hurt OSU on the glass, recording a career-high 13 rebounds on the night to go with six points.OSU’s 48 points were its lowest total of the season, but managed to hold Illinois to just 16 points in the second half. The 39 points by Illinois were the second fewest allowed by the Buckeyes this season, with only the 35 scored by Marquette Nov. 16 being less.Next up, OSU is scheduled to return to the Schottenstein Center for a matchup against Northwestern (12-13, 5-7, seventh in the Big Ten) Wednesday at 7 p.m. read more

Kalank box office prediction These 4 aspects may take a toll on

first_imgKalank poster.InstagramBollywood movie Kalank starring Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur is set for grand worldwide release, but four aspects may affect its collection at the box office.Kalank is riding on huge hype and expectations. Its ensemble cast of Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt, vibrant production values featured in its promos have generated a massive amount of curiosity about the film, which is set for worldwide release on April 17. Considering this hysteria, it is expected to start with a bang and make a superb collection.But some aspects may prove very costly for Kalank and eat away its prospects at the box office. Here are those five threats.IPL feverIndia is a fast gripped by the IPL fever and there is little interest among the people to watch movies at the moment. The evening shows of a movie decide its prospects, but Kalank is surely going miss this on a huge scale, as most of the viewers will be busy watching cricket matches every evening for the next few days. Hence, its collection may be affected largely by the IPL fever.2019’s general electionsGeneral elections are the biggest sensations in the country at the moment and almost everyone is focused on it. In fact, it is the biggest entertainment for some people after the IPL. Many are busy watching political leaders pulling each other’s legs during election campaigns. This engagement might also prove costly for Kalank, as it may keep many viewers away from the cinema halls.Alleged love jihad and nationalismLove jihad and the feeling of nationalism created by the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are the interesting topics of debate for many people. This feeling might force some viewers to boycott Kalank, as it deals with a love story of a Muslim guy and Hindu girl. Some right-wing audience had expressed their anguish against the makers after watching its trailer. Now, they may stay away from watching the film.Kalank comparison with SLB’s moviesSanjay Leela Bhansali is a master of storytelling and has an impeccable eye for details from palatial sets to elaborate costumes. From Devdas to Bajirao Mastani, his films are extravagant visual feasts and nothing short of poetic experiences. He has an impeccable eye for details. From palatial sets to elaborate costumes, he is a master of storytelling. Kalank song Tabaah Ho Gaye.InstagramWhen the teaser of Kalank was released on the internet, many viewers asked whether Karan Johar is trying to break into Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s grandeur and charm genre. This shows that there will be a lot of comparison with the latter’s films. Since there is a lot of difference in their way of filmmaking, it may lead to negative word of mouth, which may affect the collection of the movie at the box office.last_img read more

Play it on loop

first_img‘Female Dj’s are no dolly birds!’ says DJane July Loop. Before this beauty hits Zerzura on 4 May, she gets candid with Millennium Post. Read on…Tell us a bit about yourself. Where did you start from?I am from Ukraine and working as a DJ from past 4 and a half years and have travelled across the world for work. I have played in countries like Switzerland, Italy, Poland, China, Korea, Turkey, Egypt and many more. I started my career as a DJ from my own city – Ukraine.   Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Where did the interest in music come in and the plans to become a DJ and go behind the console?I love listening to music and doing mixing. I was crazy about rock music since I was in my teens. I used to party a lot with my friends. One of my DJ friends taught me how to play, but at that time it was just a hobby. But now music has become a part of my life and I can’t live without music and crazy people on the dance floor.Tell us about what made it for you. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixMy never-ending love for music and the crazy grooving people on the dance floor. I mark a success for myself when I make the entire crowd in the venue dance like crazy on the beats I play.  I will always remember the big artists I have worked with like Tara Mcdonald, Armin van Buuren, Dj Ralvero, Ottawan etc. They really helped me to reach where I have.     Tell us about making it big – was it a long journey and a tough struggle?In the beginning of my career I used to play in small parties, usually a pre-party.  It wasn’t a long journey for me because I got my first break to work with a well known DJ from London. It was my first assignment abroad in Istanbul. I played warm up for him. After the show we worked together for almost one month and I at that moment understood what is really to be a DJ. Is it harder to be a female DJ as compared to your male counterparts?Female DJ’s were largely regarded as a gimmick, a ‘dolly bird’  to gaze at and to be taken seriously, as someone who might actually know how to present music, was almost an impossibility. People in various countries have different mindsets.  Some people don’t believe that a female DJ can play and take a party on a high. They look at me or my photo and think I am just a model standing near the console. I love facing the challenges and with these people I love breaking of that stereotype thoughts. Usually, after my party, people come to me and say: Wow you really can play!!! What are the essential ingredients needed to become a DJ?You should love music and have an ability of sensing the crowd’s music requirements. Sometimes the taste of the crowd is far different from yours, at that moment you need to change your preferences and need to adapt according to the crowd.Is this your first visit to India? What sort of reaction are you expecting from Delhi?It is my third trip to India. I have heard that the Delhi crowd is the most energetic crowd. I am expecting a lot from the Delhiites. I want to drive my crowd crazy with my beats. Earlier Delhi crowd was only open to Bollywood and commercial music. But now with the increase of music knowledge among Delhiites the preferences has been changed. People are better informed now and they also enjoy all the genres of music. Tell us what tops your playlist right now – the top tracks on it…The top tracks on my playlists are:  Baauer – Harlem Shake; Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Thrift Shop; Pitbull and Christina Aguilera – Feel This Moment.last_img read more

Popular Puerto Viejo nightclub Johnnys Place closed indefinitely following weekend shooting

first_imgThe incident happened a day before Costa Rica’s National Police posted a press release on its website titled “Police reinforce vigilance in the southern Caribbean of Limón,” indicating that an alliance with a local tourism board and residents will lead to the installment of 11 new security cameras at Playa Cocles, Manzanillo and Puerto Viejo.It also noted that the Public Security Ministry and Tourist Police opened a new three-story station in Cocles to “reinforce vigilance in several of the more frequented beaches of the southern Caribbean.”The plan also includes two new patrol vehicles, new all-terrain vehicles donated by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) and 10 new officers, who will double street patrols of south Caribbean communities and beaches at night and in the early morning. They will “confront criminals who usually attack properties in isolated and hard-to-reach areas,” the report states.“The situation has improved considerably, and we believe the police now have more resources, and we support those efforts that benefit us all,” the release quotes Jorge Molina, president of the local tourism board, as saying.In the past few years, increases in robberies, home invasions and violent attacks in the southern Caribbean, coupled with a shortage of police resources and manpower, have prompted local hotel and business owners and residents to rally behind community policing and victims assistance initiatives. Local community members have been working tirelessly to lobby for more cops, security cameras and patrols. They also help victims, including tourists, file criminal complaints and put the word out on social media when crimes occur.But the shooting at Johnny’s wasn’t in an isolated area – it was right next to a police station. In a posting on a southern Caribbean community Facebook group, some residents complained that police officers just 20 meters away failed to quickly respond to the emergency, allowing the perpetrator to flee.One alleged witness wrote: “Last night, 1:30 in the morning, Johnny’s is full, inside shots are heard, many, they don’t stop, we all run out, I reach the police, and a wounded victim arrives, too. 4 officers attending to him [the victim], shots continue, I ask the police officer who’s holding a machine gun, aren’t you going to see who’s shooting??? NO. The officer goes back into the police station…..Meanwhile, a car leaves at a high speed … and runs over someone … I go back to the police station….the 4 cops are still there….I tell them, you know they just ran someone over??? Yes, we’re leaving now….30 minutes later they leave….”Costa Rica’s southern Caribbean zone isn’t alone in facing increasing crime. A report on Monday by Teletica’s Álvaro Sánchez noted that assaults, robberies and home invasions are up across the country, on par to reach the highest numbers since President Laura Chinchilla took office four years ago on a platform to improve public security. The story even cites a store owner in Santo Domingo de Heredia, Germán Azofeifa, who has been attacked and robbed 30 times in the last five years. Johnny’s Place, a beloved institution in the southern Caribbean beach town of Puerto Viejo known for its reggaeton and R&B DJs, has closed following a shooting early Sunday morning. Club owner Johnny León says it might be for good.“No one died this time, but I don’t want to be caught in a crossfire again,” León said. In the early hours of Sunday morning, a man pulled out a gun and opened fire inside the bar, wounding five people, according to Costa Rica’s Judicial Investigative Police (OIJ).The victims were named as Ditier Castro, 21; Darcy Zaira Romero, 47; Raul Enrique Moraga, 24; Carlos Vaz Mcleod, whose age wasn’t specified; and his mother, Icylin Mcleod.Some of the wounded piled into a car and headed for the nearby Hone Creek Clinic, in Talamanca. On the way, their car struck pedestrian Andrei Medrano, a private security guard who now is in critical condition at the Calderón Guardia Hospital, in San José. The five shooting victims were taken to Tony Facio Hospital in Limón, where they are in stable condition, according to OIJ spokesman Marco Monje.The shooter fled the scene, and police did not immediately make an arrest. Monje said the apparent motive for the shooting was personal problems between the suspect and one of the victims. When the first shot was fired, León said he was serving drinks, and along with many of his terrified patrons, he got down on the floor. His wife, Argerie Guido, was behind the register, and his son José Joaquín was working behind the bar. When the shots stopped, José Joaquín turned on the lights, and the family waited about 30 minutes for police to show up, León said.Only two policemen were on duty in the area, according León, who said he spoke at length with police officers and provided them with videos from security cameras. Based on those videos, police identified the suspect, León told The Tico Times.León also learned from police that the shooting allegedly involved members of rival gangs from Cahuita, a town located 16 kilometers north of Puerto Viejo.Until recently, many of the shootings in the area have taken place in the street, not inside businesses, León said. “We haven’t slept well since then,” said Guido, León’s wife. “We are really worried about the safety in the area.” A shiny new police station in Playa Cocles, on the southern Caribbean coast.

That type of speed is key.Here’s what he told me:Most ordinary investors miss these opportunities because they don’t know what professional investors like hedge funds and institutions are doing. But to be fair, these big-money firms work hard to keep their activity quiet – because until they’re done, it doesn’t help them if people know what they’re buying. That’s why speed is key.In his most recent Palm Beach Trader issue, Jason identified a small tech company that institutions are snapping up quickly. And his system is showing there’s likely more demand from hedge funds – which could lead to triple-digit gains in just a few months. (Subscribers can read the issue right here.)If you’re not a Palm Beach Trader subscriber, the best one-click way to get exposure to the sector is through the iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX). This fund holds large semiconductor companies like Nvidia, Intel, and Broadcom.Regards,Nick Rokke Analyst, The Palm Beach DailyP.S. As I mentioned above, Cantor Fitzgerald stunned everyone with its new high-speed trading system in 2012. Time magazine… The New York Times… The Telegraph… and even 60 Minutes reported on this system – which could “look up to 30 milliseconds into the future.”It was hands down the fastest high-speed trading system in Wall Street history.

Recommended Link Seeing the Future… Before Everyone ElseIn February 2019, Jason told me his proprietary system (more on it in a moment) was seeing a rush back into semiconductor stocks – and that it was a positive sign of economic growth.Here’s what he said then:Perhaps the biggest evidence of a rush back to growth is being seen again in semiconductors. Semis got smoked last year and were essentially a toxic wasteland… And we noticed a major repricing of semis earlier this month with some stellar earnings and heavy institutional accumulation.As usual, Jason nailed that call…The sector has shot up nearly 30% in this year’s first quarter – its best start ever. And the overall market has followed.But if you think you’ve missed the boat on semiconductors, think again. Jason says his system is continuing to signal institutional buying in the sector. And that means more gains ahead for investors in these companies…Big Money Is Piling InRegular Palm Beach Daily readers know that we call Jason our Wall Street insider because he spent nearly two decades as a trader (including being a partner at Cantor Fitzgerald).But few people know this: In 2012, his firm helped create Tradeworx.The name might not ring a bell. But if you’ve read about high-speed trading in The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times – or watched the 60 Minutes special on it – you actually do know about Tradeworx.It was the fastest high-speed trading system on Wall Street – making trades in less than a second. But here’s the thing…After Jason left Cantor Fitzgerald, he created his own breakthrough system – one that can spot the biggest (and most lucrative) trades on Wall Street… up to a month in advance.That same system flagged institutional buying in semiconductors earlier this year. And it’s proven to be highly accurate on a number of other occasions, too. (For example, it predicted the sell-off in February 2018 and the rally we saw at the start of this year.)

(They’re also called the “brains” of machines.) From toasters and smartphones… to computers and complex networking equipment… the modern world couldn’t operate without them.And because the companies making them are the first part of the supply chain, they’re often the first to feel the pain when the economy slows down.In fact, as you can see in the chart below, the sector is so important that it’s widely considered a leading indicator of market health:In the second half of 2018, semiconductor companies crashed 24%. An overall 19% market meltdown soon followed.The carnage was so bad, Palm Beach Research Group’s Wall Street insider Jason Bodner called semis a “toxic wasteland.”But today, we’re seeing a reversal in this important sector.

For the eightandahalf years she spent in prison

first_imgFor the eight-and-a-half years she spent in prison, Kristan Kerr looked forward to one thing every month: a visit from her daughter, Chloe. Visit by visit, she watched Chloe grow from a toddler into a young adult.”I just watched her grow all the way up,” Kerr says. “One visit, she couldn’t read, and then the next visit she was reading something to me.”Convicted for aggravated robbery in 2011 – she was the driver — Kerr says she wasn’t making good choices back then, and it meant missing out on a lot.She and Chloe would talk on the phone and send letters and visit, but she says you can’t do the physical, nurturing part of parenting from prison. Even though Kerr trusted that Chloe was being cared for by her grandmother, she says you never stop worrying about your kid.There are more than 225,000 women behind bars, according to the most recent 2017 federal statistics. Half are in state and federal prisons, the other half in local jails. It’s actually a slight decrease, coming after years of ballooning incarceration among women.From 1980 to 2016, the country saw a 700% increase in the number of women behind bars. Exactly how many are mothers isn’t well tracked, but a survey of women in Texas prisons showed more than 80% of them are moms.Lawmakers across the country are now considering ways to send fewer moms with minor children to jail and prison, and to help preserve parent-child bonds when they’re locked up.In Texas, lawmakers are considering bills that would promote diversion programs, probation or other community-based sentences over jail or prison time to avoid breaking up families. Tennessee recently passed legislation to do that.There were some tough times for Chloe, who’s now 12. It was hard seeing other kids with their moms, but she says it’s been good since her mother was released in October. Not that it’s been easy, exactly.”It’s been a little bit challenging because I’ve still got to get used to her, I’ve got to learn her, get comfortable with her,” Chloe says. But, she adds, “I’m happier now that she’s here, that I get to see her every day.””Many of the women, once they get arrested, are scrambling to find someone to take care of their kids,” says Michele Deitch, who studies prison issues at the University of Texas at Austin. “So a lot of kids get shuttled from place to place, and if they’re not able to find a place for them, then many of the kids end up in foster care.”Other states are looking at incarcerating parents closer to their children, and expanding visitation so kids can see mom or dad more often. Incarcerated parents who have stronger relationships with their kids, Deitch says, behave better while inside, and are less likely to commit future crimes after they’re released.”It’s really critical for the parent to not lose touch with their child, and to stay involved and to feel like they can make a difference in the child’s life to be aware of what’s happening to them,” Deitch says.Growing up with their incarcerated parents can be damaging to their children. That’s part of the reason children with incarcerated parents are more likely to end up in the criminal justice system themselves, according to Dallas lawyer Brittany Barnett. She launched Girls Embracing Mothers, a nonprofit aimed at improving outcomes for girls and their incarcerated mothers, after her own mother was sent to prison.”Even though I was a young adult when my mom went to prison, my sister and I were devastated by her incarceration,” Barnett says. “It not only impacts the person in prison, but the children are the hidden victims of their parents’ crimes.”Kristan and Chloe Kerr took part in the Girls Embracing Mothers program. Barnett says she’s optimistic about reform legislation, but hopes it’s just a first step toward a more effective and less punitive justice system.”These women aren’t bad women, they made bad choices,” Barnett says.Texas Rep. James White, a Republican, says the crimes women commit are often different from their male peers. He heads the House Committee on Corrections, and introduced a bill to address issues faced by women in prison, including pregnancy and childbirth.”I hear a lot of offenses that are linked to domestic violence, so they may stab their spouse that’s abusing them and their kids,” White says, “young women that have experienced repeated sexual abuse from a family member, women who have fallen into the trap of addiction.”Researchers agree that a history of trauma underlies a lot of the criminal behavior that lands women in jails and prisons. Kristan Kerr says many of the moms in prison with her struggled with psychological and behavioral issues.”Women, they love their kids,” she says. “Maybe they’re stuck with addiction but that’s a sickness, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want their children.”Since she’s been out, Kerr has been working through a list of goals she set for herself to rebuild her life. She’s got a job, got her driver’s license, and she’s spending lots of time with her daughter. Copyright 2019 KERA. To see more, visit KERA.last_img read more

Marijuana Workers Now Outnumber Bakers and Other Common Careers

first_img Next Article Add to Queue –shares For an industry still in its early stages, legal marijuana already has surpassed many other businesses in generating jobs.In a new report called the Marijuana Business Factbook 2017, the marijuana industry is reported to have created 165,000 to 230,000 full- and part-time jobs in the United States. According to the report, that means there are more people working in the marijuana industry than there are bakers, dental hygienists and massage therapists.The job numbers include those working at cannabis retail stores, growing facilities, marijuana-infused product companies, testing labs and ancillary businesses such as transportation and security. The numbers represent “marijuana’s rapid transformation out of the black market and into a viable economic force,” according to the report.Related: Sorry, But No You Can’t Smoke Marijuana on the Las Vegas Strip Yet.Practical mattersThe numbers also underscore one of the two practical considerations for political leaders that go beyond the decades-old “war against drugs” debate that continues at the federal level.The first is that legalized marijuana generates huge amounts of tax income for state and local governments. For example, Oregon expects to reap $200 million in adult-use marijuana taxes by 2019, and that money will go to schools, roads and law enforcement.The tax dollars generated by Colorado and other western states have politicians in other cash-starved states, such as Illinois, hoping to legalize marijuana to help balance governmental budgets.The second, which the report focused on, is job creation. Nationwide, the numbers are expected to skyrocket as California, Massachusetts and Nevada allow adult-use sales and another big state, Florida, moves forward with a regulated medical marijuana industry.Though all the new legal marijuana markets will take time to fully develop, “they have the potential to create tens of thousands of new jobs in the marijuana industry,” according to the report.Putting it in perspectiveMarijuana also has been a boon to small businesses. The majority of the jobs in marijuana are concentrated on smaller operations that only need a handful of employees.Part of the reason for this is the fact marijuana remains an illegal drug at the federal level. Because legalization has happened in a state-by-state manner, large marijuana companies employing hundreds of workers have not materialized.Related: NBA Champion John Salley Talks About the ‘Seed to Sale’ Process for Cannabis BusinessBut the jobs continue to multiply. Assuming that most marijuana industry workers do not require a college degree, here are some other, similar occupations that the marijuana industry has either surpassed or approached in the number of workers:Short-order cooks (181,600)Electronics Installers and Repairers (136,100)Library Assistants (210,700)Boilermakers (17,400)Sheet metal workers (141,000)Again, the employment numbers will only grow as legal marijuana operations go into effect in new states. Moving forward on the debate about marijuana, expect politicians to start referencing the economic benefits of cannabis over long-held objections. They may find the economic bottom line on the marijuana industry is too strong to ignore. Easy Search. Quality Finds. Your partner and digital portal for the cannabis community.

If You Still Call Amazon an Online Retailer Heres One More Reason

If You Still Call Amazon an Online Retailer, Here’s One More Reason to Stop Amazon Image credit: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com Amazon is staggeringly good at selling things online. In just North America last year, the company generated $2.8 billion in operating income. That’s a 20 percent jump from 2016, according to a release connected to its latest earnings report.But, that’s not the complete picture. It’s still-growing international sales segment saw a $3 billion loss in operating income.Related: The Surprising Ways Amazon, Apple and Microsoft Really Make Their BillionsThank goodness for Amazon Web Services. The company’s cloud division helped propel Amazon to some of the best numbers in the company’s history. The cloud service saw $17.5 billion in net sales last year. After expenses, the division still brought in an operating income of $4.3 billion, a 39 percent increase from 2016, ensuring a total annual net income for the company of $3 billion.And this segment of Amazon’s business will continue to grow. The company announced several high-profile clients for AWS in its report, including Disney, Turner, Symantec and the NFL. Amazon also expanded AWS infrastructure in France and China, and plans to open new zones in Bahrain, Hong Kong and Sweden between now and early 2019.The company is also expanding its AI offering to include transcribing and translating services and deep-learning powered video analysis. It also announced AWS Media Services, which will provide cloud tools for video providers.Related: Here’s How You Can Use Alexa at WorkAmazon also further entrenched itself in the workplace with Alexa for Business.While the company continues to burn money in its bid to get the world to buy everything from the “everything store,” it will have AWS propping it up.Of course, Amazon’s incredibly strong retail segments are still essential to the company and only part of its many growing offerings. The lesson for entrepreneurs is to watch how AWS’s growth and continued success is helping the company invest and make inroads in AI, international ecommerce or media that many other companies can’t.”Our 2017 projections for Alexa were very optimistic, and we far exceeded them,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s CEO and founder, in a statement. “Expect us to double down.”last_img read more
