TVO host breaks silence says sexual harassment allegation 100 per cent false

first_imgTORONTO – A veteran journalist with Ontario’s public broadcaster fired back and denied a sexual harassment allegation made by a Toronto woman, calling the claim “complete fiction.”Steve Paikin, host of TVOntario’s flagship current events program “The Agenda,” broke his silence Tuesday with an extensive statement on Facebook, where he said he was “gobsmacked” by the allegation outlined to him in an email from his accuser over the weekend.“Even though I knew the allegations were 100 per cent false, I did what I suspected was the appropriate thing to do and immediately passed the email on to my superiors at TVO,” Paikin wrote. “I knew the charges were bogus, but I knew I owed it to my employer to be totally transparent about all of it.”Paikin said he spent two hours Sunday with TVO management and its lawyers “answering every imaginable question.”His comments come after TVO announced Monday that an independent third party will investigate the allegations, during which time Paikin will continue to host “The Agenda.”Paikin commended the broadcaster Tuesday for bringing in the investigator, adding that “I have no doubt that a thorough and fair analysis of the allegations and the parties involved will point to the truth.”Paikin and TVO have said the claims were mounted by former Toronto mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson, who Paikin said he has known professionally for more than a decade.In a post Friday on Thomson’s website Women’s Post, she wrote that a political talk show host, who she did not identify, “asked me if I would sleep with him” after attending a lunch at a Toronto restaurant in 2010. She said her assistant was present for the meeting.She said she “politely” declined his offer, then went to the washroom and called her campaign manager, who advised her to leave, which she said she did.Thomson has not responded to requests for comment from The Canadian Press.Before Paikin released his Facebook statement, Thomson tweeted Tuesday, “Women don’t come forward because they get attacked on social media. Did Paikin go public to scare other women from coming forward? Sad how easily he’s playing people.”The allegation comes amid a social justice movement under the #MeToo and Time’s Up banners, which has sparked an international conversation on sexual misconduct, harassment and assault.Paikin said the movement is “too important to be undermined by spurious allegations. The only good thing about this has been receiving the huge number of emails and phone calls from people who believe me and are prepared to say so publicly.”He said he wrote the statement independent of TVO and his lawyers, and that he has had trouble sleeping since the allegation was made.“You’ve defamed me Sarah. I have no idea why, but you have. And I simply can’t allow that to stand,” he wrote. “The quest to reclaim my reputation, which you’ve tried to destroy, begins now. I look forward to vindication.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. Headlines in a previous version said Steve Paikin responded to sexual assault allegations. In fact, he is responding to a sexual harassment allegation.last_img read more

The Latest Spain pulls its frigate from near Persian Gulf

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Latest on the reported sabotage attacks on ships near the Persian Gulf amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran (all times local):11:50 a.m.Spain has temporarily pulled out a frigate that was part of a U.S.-led combat fleet from waters near the Persian Gulf, where tensions are mounting between the United States and Iran.The Spanish Ministry of Defence says the Méndez Núñez frigate, with 215 sailors on board, will not cross the Strait of Hormuz into the Gulf together with the fleet headed by the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier.The Ministry declined to elaborate on the reasons of the sudden change.Spanish media, citing government sources, said Spain is concerned that it could be dragged to an unwanted conflict as a result of the crisis between Washington and Teheran surrounding the unraveling nuclear deal with world powers.The Spanish frigate was the only non-U.S. vessel in the fleet, which is scheduled to sail to California in late October.___7:50 a.m.New satellite photos obtained by The Associated Press show the oil tankers that Gulf officials alleged were the targets of “sabotage” off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.The images, provided on Tuesday by Colorado-based Maxar Technologies, show the oil tankers. Two are from Saudi Arabia, one is Norwegian and the other is Emirati.A boom surrounds the Emirati oil tanker, suggesting officials worry about an oil leak from the vessel.Otherwise, the vessels do not show signs of massive damage. The Norwegian ship sustained a hole just above its hull in the incident.A U.S. official, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said all the ships sustained similar damage.—Lolita C.

In era of email snail mail still going strong UN postal agency

6 December 2007Despite stiff competition from electronic communications, snail mail is still going strong, the United Nations Universal Postal Union (UPU) announced today, with letter mail traffic up slightly, more parcels being sent and postal revenue surging. Despite stiff competition from electronic communications, snail mail is still going strong, the United Nations Universal Postal Union (UPU) announced today, with letter mail traffic up slightly, more parcels being sent and postal revenue surging.In its worldwide statistics for 2006, the Berne, Switzerland-based UPU reported that with a total traffic of 433 billion mail items, domestic letter-post traffic rose slightly compared to the year before, while international mail was down two per cent.The number of parcels sent last year numbered 6.235 billion items nationally and internationally, increasing 4.8 per cent from the year before. Domestically, advertising mail contributed to the rise in mail volumes.The biggest rise in domestic parcels traffic – 11.7 per cent – occurred in Africa, while internationally, Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) saw a 21.4 per cent surge.Global postal revenue climbed 13 per cent to $308.1 billion compared to 2005. More than half of these profits were generated by letter post, while more than one quarter was created by parcels and logistics services.The statistics were gathered from responses to a UPU questionnaire, to which 163 out of the 191 UPU Member States responded.The survey showed that the Swiss send the largest number of letters – 713 letters annually – while the Japanese send the most parcels, some 18.1 yearly.The UPU also found that the world’s postal services employ more than 5.5 billion people. Vanuatu has the smallest postal staff globally with 37 employees, while with 796,199 employees, the United States has the largest.With four post offices, the Vatican has the fewest number of them, while India, with the most, has 155,333.The UPU is the world’s second-oldest international organization, created in 1874. The agency acts as the primary forum for cooperation between postal systems worldwide. read more

UN General Assembly votes to ask ICJ for opinion on Israels separation

The United Nations General Assembly, at the resumption of its long-running tenth emergency special session on Palestine, adopted a resolution today asking the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to issue an advisory opinion on the legal consequences of Israel’s construction of a separation barrier between itself and the West Bank.The recorded vote in the 191-member Assembly was 90 in favour, 8 against (Australia, Ethiopia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 74 abstentions. Nineteen delegations were absent.Among those abstaining was the Russian Federation, a member of the “Quartet” advocating a Roadmap to Peace in the Middle East. The other three members of the Quartet are the European Union, the United States and the United Nations.The Assembly also expressed grave concern about the start and ongoing construction of the barrier in and around East Jerusalem — a departure from the 1940s Armistice “Green Line” — disrupting the lives of thousands of civilians and leading to the de facto annexation of large areas of territory.The tenth emergency session on illegal Israeli actions in Occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territory dates back to 1997, when Israel began construction of a new settlement south of East Jerusalem.The ICJ, based in The Hague, the Netherlands, and established in 1946, is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It has the dual role of settling legal disputes between member states and issuing advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by international organs and agencies.Arab delegations had called for the vote following the release of a report by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, which said that Israel was not in compliance with the General Assembly’s past demand that it halt construction of the barrier and remove it.After the vote, Israeli Ambassador Dan Gillerman said more than half the Assembly had not voted for the present “biased resolution,” rejecting it in one way or another. Among those voting for and against the measure, a clear distinction existed between tyrannical dictatorships and corrupt regimes on one side and those with enlightened regimes on the other, he said.Israel regarded the vote as a moral victory for the enlightened, civilized world over the dark forces of tyranny and corruption, he said.The Observer for Palestine, Nasser al-Kidwa, described the barrier as a 21st century “wall of shame,” which was built on a foundation of killings and human rights violations and which must be removed immediately.Continued construction of the wall meant the end of the two-state solution to the conflict, as well as the Quartet-backed peace plan, he said. The entire world stood against the building of the “expansionist wall” and countries had been subjected to “immense pressures” not to vote for the resolution, he added.

End is near for nasty proxy fight between Agrium and Jana partners

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email End is near for nasty proxy fight between Agrium and Jana partners by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 7, 2013 6:00 am MDT CALGARY – To Agrium Inc., Jana Partners LLC is a hedge fund Hell-bent on breaking up the company, selling the parts and making a quick buck.To Jana, Canadian fertilizer giant Agrium (TSX:AGU) is a chronic underperformer that has mismanaged its business, lacked proper board oversight and been stubbornly resistant to change.Months of name-calling and accusations will come to an end one way or another on Tuesday, when Agrium holds its annual general meeting and shareholders vote on whether to elect Jana’s five nominees to the company’s 12-member board.“We are confident that Agrium will prevail,” said Agrium spokesman Richard Downey.“We look forward to putting the proxy contest behind us so we can focus our full attention on optimizing the business, helping growers feed a growing world and creating long-term value for our shareholders.”Jana also believes the vote will go its way on Tuesday, said partner Charles Penner.“We’re very confident based on the shareholder support that we’ve already received that highly valuable experience and enhanced shareholder focus is coming to Agrium’s board on Tuesday.”In the waning weeks of the fight, the debate has seemed more focused on the tactics each side is using rather than bigger-picture issues around Agrium’s long-term prospects.“At this time, we think investors should take a step back, avoid getting bogged down in the fray and examine the high-level, important issues that will last beyond the next month and truly affect Agrium’s future,” wrote RBC Capital Markets analyst Adam Schatzker in a recent report, adding that splitting the company is a bad idea and there’s nothing wrong with the status quo.Jana has spent more than $1 billion to acquire a 7.5 per cent stake in Agrium, making the New York hedge fund, headed by Barry Rosenstein, the fertilizer company’s biggest shareholder.The activist fund, whose campaigns have never gone as far as a shareholder vote until now, first approached Agrium in May of last year.According to Agrium, Jana’s pitch centred around breaking up the company, spinning off its retail segment and its potash business.Agrium said its board gave fair hearing to Jana’s ideas and after a two-month review decided shareholders would be better off if it remained in one piece.Jana, for its part, says Agrium failed to address the issues it has raised, which go beyond just its split proposal. In addition to addressing Agrium’s “conglomerate structure,” Jana also wants to see improvements in costs, controls, corporate governance and capital allocation — its so-called “5 Cs” platform.The fight went public in August and since then, the two sides have been lobbing barbs at each other on a regular basis.Jana has decried Agrium’s “scorched earth” approach and “thin-skinned” responses. Agrium has likened Jana to a Trojan horse, duping shareholders into allowing the company to be broken up.Jana wants to appoint five directors to Agrium’s 12-member board, including Rosenstein and former Liberal agriculture minister Lyle Vanclief. To address what it sees as a lack of retail distribution expertise on the board, it also wants to appoint David Bullock, Stephen Clark and Mitchell Jacobson, who had leadership roles at UAP, Brenntag and MSC, respectively.In February, Agrium appointed former Viterra CEO Mayo Schmidt and former John Deere & Co. executive David Everitt to the board, but Jana was not satisfied.Around that time Agrium and Jana had come close to calling a truce, but it fell apart at the last minute. Each blames the other for the deal’s failure.In the weeks since, Agrium and Jana have been quarelling about how Agrium’s long-term share price performance ought to be measured and compared with its peers. Each is accusing the other of torqing the numbers.The two firms have also been attacking one another’s integrity. Agrium accuses Jana of putting its director nominees on “golden leashes” — offering them financial incentives based on Agrium’s share-price performance over 30 months — that call into question their independence and commitment to Agrium’s long-term performance.More recently, Jana has pounced on what it sees as “vote buying” on Agrium’s part. Agrium is paying 25 cents to brokers and investment advisers for each share their clients vote in favour of Agrium, to a minimum of $100 and a maximum of $1,500 per beneficial share owner.So far, four institutional shareholders have said publicly they intend to side with Agrium: Alberta fund manager AIMCo, B.C. fund manager bcIMC, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Letko, Brosseau and Associates.Proxy advisers have been divided on what Agrium shareholders ought to do. Influential firm ISS, whose recommendations many tend to follow, says two of Jana’s five nominees should join the board: Rosenstein and Bullock.ISS said Jana has made a “compelling case for change” on the board.“The gnawing question is not whether the company should spin off its distribution business, but whether a board still loudly repudiating the very changes it has begun to implement, changes which have encouraged many shareholders and analysts, is a board with a burgeoning credibility problem. Shareholders may well wonder if, once the bright lights of this proxy contest are turned off, the progress will fade as well.”Other proxy advisory firms — Glass, Lewis, Pensions Investment Research Consultants and Egan-Jones — have all endorsed Agrium’s existing board.In a recent research note, Scotia Capital analyst Ben Isaacson said voting Jana’s proxy, even to vote for one or two of its nominees, would be a “mistake.”“In our view, this would inevitably lead to a split and toxic board, where competing visions and in-fighting destroy shareholder value rather than create it.” read more

Bernankes decision to skip US Fed conference in August fuels speculation hell

Bernanke’s decision to skip US Fed conference in August fuels speculation he’ll leave in Jan. by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Apr 23, 2013 3:52 am MDT WASHINGTON – Ben Bernanke is intensifying speculation that this year will be his last as Federal Reserve chairman by deciding to skip the Fed’s annual August conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.Jackson Hole has long been a high-profile platform for speeches by Fed chairmen. Since taking over the Fed in 2006, Bernanke has been the marquee speaker each year. In 2010, he used his speech to signal that the Fed could launch another bond-buying program. Stock prices jumped in response to his remarks.His second four-year term will end in January, and neither he nor President Barack Obama has signalled whether Bernanke will serve a third term.The Jackson Hole retreat, sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, will be held Aug. 22-24. A Fed spokesman said Monday that Bernanke won’t attend because of a “personal scheduling conflict.” He didn’t elaborate.Tim Duy, an economics professor at the University of Oregon and author of the FedWatch blog, said Bernanke’s decision suggests that he’ll leave the Fed in January.“I wonder if that indicates what we all believe,” Duy said.All eyes at the conference will likely instead focus on the Fed’s vice chair, Janet Yellen, who is widely considered the front-runner to succeed Bernanke. Yellen, who previously led the San Francisco Fed, was appointed vice chair by Obama. Yellen has been a vocal supporter of Bernanke’s low interest rate policies, and her selection would suggest that the Fed would continue those policies.And if Yellen is the keynote speaker at Jackson Hole this year, “that would just confirm her front-runner status,” said Zach Pandl, an economist at Columbia Management, an asset management firm.Pandl said it’s even possible Bernanke could inform the White House of his intention to leave, and Obama could publicly tap Yellen to succeed him, before Jackson Hole.About 140 central bankers, economists, academics and government officials attend the annual conference, which is in its 37th year. In 2010, Bernanke used his speech to list the Fed’s options for stimulating a weak economy, including a second round of Fed bond purchases to try to keep borrowing costs low. That was the approach Bernanke eventually announced two months later.Several of Bernanke’s comments this year have caused observers to speculate that he is ready to leave after eight grueling years, which included the financial crisis and Great Recession, and likely resume teaching at Princeton University.Asked at a news conference last month about his plans, Bernanke said, “I don’t think that I’m the only person in the world who can manage the exit” from the Fed’s record-low-rate policies and $3 trillion in bond holdings. The Fed has vastly expanded its portfolio through bond purchases intended to keep rates low to encourage borrowing, spending and investing.In congressional testimony in February, the normally circumspect Bernanke flashed impatience over criticism that the Fed under his leadership has escalated the risk of high inflation. Responding to a question from Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, Bernanke said, “None of the things you said are accurate.”“He didn’t sound like someone who wanted to stick around in the job much longer,” Duy said.This year’s Jackson Hole conference will occur as even some members of the Fed’s policy committee are pushing to end its $85 billion-a-month in bond purchases, which began last year. That pressure could intensify by the time of the Jackson Hole conference, particularly if the economy has strengthened.Bernanke said in December that the Fed would continue buying Treasury securities and mortgage-backed bonds until substantial progress was made in reducing unemployment. The unemployment rate remains a still-high 7.6 per cent.Assuming he does leave in January, Bernanke’s absence from Jackson Hole would contrast with the 2005 conference, the last one before Alan Greenspan ended his 18-year tenure as Fed chief. That conference featured numerous expressions of praise for Greenspan’s achievements at the Fed. Two years later, the financial crisis pushed the country into the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.“In hindsight, it looks like the participants at the 2005 Jackson Hole conference missed the elephant in the room, which was the growing credit bubble and instability in the financial system,” Pandl said.__Follow Chris Rugaber on Twitter at AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Amid ongoing Egyptian protests UN chief urges rethinking antidemonstrations law

“He stresses the importance of respect for peaceful protest and freedom of assembly, and a commitment to dialogue and non-violence,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement.Egyptian authorities passed a new law on Sunday restricting demonstrations and giving local security authorities the power to ban gatherings that would, among other things, constitute a threat to “security” or “disrupt citizens’’ interests”.The top United Nations official today added his voice to those criticizing the law for leaving the door open to a very restrictive and repressive interpretation, as Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said yesterday.In today’s statement, Mr. Ban reiterated Ms. Pillay’s concerns and urged Egyptian authorities to consider amendments to the law “to make sure that any laws passed are in full conformity with international human rights standards”.Egypt has been undergoing a democratic transition following the toppling of President Hosni Mubarak two years ago in the wake of mass protests. This past July, renewed protests, in which dozens of people were killed and wounded, led to the Egyptian military deposing President Mohamed Morsy. The Constitution was then suspended and an interim government set up.The UN chief today reiterated that an atmosphere where there is free assembly and expression is a key element for Egypt to credibly hold its planned referendum on the Constitution as is expected next month. The referendum is to be followed by parliamentary and presidential elections. read more

UN welcomes safe return of two abducted staffers in Pakistan

“The whole UN family in Pakistan welcomes their safe return,” the world body said in a statement.The two staff went missing on the evening of 17 April. When no contact with the staff members was possible, local police were alerted.The police led the investigation, in close contact with UNICEF and the staff members’ families.“Our colleagues are safe and well, and are being supported by UNICEF’s Karachi office, and hope to be afforded privacy as they recover from their ordeal,” the statement added.

Pitching a priority for Blue Jays GM Atkins heading into winter meetings

TORONTO — The off-season to-do list for Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins has a couple of glaring needs at the top as he prepares to head out to Las Vegas for next week’s baseball winter meetings.Pitching and defence are two areas that Atkins would like to shore up as he plans for a 2019 regular season that could see a lot of young players get an opportunity.The organization is well-stocked in the minor leagues but it’s unclear when that depth will bear fruit at the big-league level. A surplus of middle infielders throughout the team’s system could give Atkins some trade bait, or he could go the free-agent route to give his starting rotation a needed boost.“What we’re trying not to do is put any firm timelines on anything,” Atkins said Wednesday. “Try to fine-tune the depth that we have. We feel so strongly about the position player group and wanting to complement that with pitching is a priority.”At the moment, new skipper Charlie Montoyo has Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman as the key cogs in a rotation that could see Ryan Borucki slotted in at the No. 3 spot.“Young controllable pitching is very difficult to acquire,” Atkins said at a luncheon with members of the Toronto chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. “So we’re not going to easily and readily acquire more Borucki or Sean Reid-Foley types.“I think adding at the free-agent level is more realistic and something that we’ll be looking to do.”The Blue Jays are coming off another down year in the American League East. Toronto settled for a fourth-place finish in the division with a 73-89 record.More pain is expected for at least a year or two. The good news for Blue Jays fans is that the organization’s top prospects could soon be ready for big-league action, with third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., at the top of the list.Guerrero is expected to start the year with triple-A Buffalo before getting a callup a few weeks later, which would give the Blue Jays one more year of contract control. Atkins was asked Wednesday who he expected his starting third baseman to be on opening day.“I think the most likely scenario would be (Brandon) Drury today but we’ll see,” he said. “We have a lot of off-season left.”Another big question mark is at shortstop. Lourdes Gurriel Jr., and Richard Urena are in the mix and Troy Tulowitzki appears close to a return after heel surgery wiped out his season.Atkins said Tulowitzki, who has been working out with college players, is recovering well but it’s too early to say when he’ll be ready for big-league play. “All of our reports are very positive,” he said. “So it’s really just a matter of getting him in the spring training environment.”The winter meetings are set for Dec. 10-13 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Resort.The BBWAA chapter also announced its annual award winners Wednesday. First baseman Justin Smoak was a unanimous pick as player of the year and left-hander J.A. Happ was named pitcher of the year.Catcher Luke Maile took the most improved player nod and Borucki was named rookie of the year. Former manager John Gibbons was the winner of the John Cerutti Award for goodwill, co-operation and character.———Follow @GregoryStrongCP on Twitter.Gregory Strong, The Canadian Press read more

Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorFormer Ohio State left tackle Jamarco Jones was selected in the fifth round with the No. 168 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks.Jones started 27 consecutive games during his junior and senior seasons. He was recognized as a First-team All-Big Ten member last season, and second-team in 2016. Jones played in 50 games, including the 2014 national championship win against Oregon, in his four seasons as a Buckeye.Jones helped Ohio State rank 17th in the country with 243.2 rushing yards per game, while also earning the eighth-most yards per rush at 5.78 yards per carry.Ohio State also gave up the ninth-fewest tackles for loss per game during last season (4.14).Jones did not fare well at the NFL combine. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound lineman finished with the third-slowest 40-yard dash (5.50 seconds) among offensive lineman, and the second-slowest 20-yard shuttle (4.99 seconds).Seattle gave up 43 sacks, the 11th most in the NFL, even with one of the more elusive quarterbacks in the league, Russell Wilson, under center.Jones and the Seahawks open up the 2018 season on Sept. 9 against the Denver Broncos. read more

Mens soccer OSU earns draw over weekend against No 7 Indiana

With No. 7 Indiana coming to town, the Ohio State men’s soccer team looked to take down another Big Ten foe at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Coming off a dominant 3-0 win over Oakland on Tuesday, the Buckeyes looked to ride momentum in hopes of improving their conference record of 2-3.OSU redshirt freshman goalkeeper Parker Siegfried (1) prepares to return the ball to midfield during the Buckeye’s game against Valparaiso on Sept. 21 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes won 4-1. Credit: Janaya Greene | Lantern PhotographerOhio State and Indiana played to a 2-2 draw on Saturday afternoon, with neither team able to find a game-winner through two overtime periods.“It could have gone either way,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “Earlier in the year we lost three games in sudden-death overtime. I think our guys were determined not to let that happen again.”The Buckeyes opened up the scoring early in the first period.In the 5th minute of play, junior forward Nate Kohl secured the ball in the box after a failed clearing attempt by the Indiana goalkeeper. Kohl deflected the ball off his chest then slid down to redirect it into the back of the net, giving the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead.For Kohl, it was his team-high fifth goal of the season.Indiana netted an equalizer in the 18th minute with a header by sophomore midfielder Jeremiah Gutjahr.However, it did not take long for the Buckeyes to answer back.In the 20th minute, Kohl worked a ball down the sideline. He slotted a pass through the middle in between a couple Hoosier defenders, finding senior midfielder Ben Fitzpatrick, who used a good first touch to get around his defender. He then fired it into the back of the net from 12 yards out, putting OSU back on top 2-1.“Me and Ben have worked on and off the ball together pretty well,” Kohl said. “I know how he plays and he knows how I play so it just keeps getting better. Its sad it took until the end of the season to start working, but I guess it’s as good a time as any.”Just as it seemed like the Buckeyes had the game in the bag, Indiana upped the tempo and started applying pressure deep in the offensive zone.With just seven minutes remaining in regulation, senior defender Billy McConnell deflected an Indiana shot inside the box that rolled just out of reach of OSU redshirt freshman goalkeeper Parker Siegfried to tie the game up at two.Neither of the two teams had many scoring opportunities in the two overtime periods, as the game ended in a tie.“When you let up an equalizing goal that late, your team could fold,” Bluem said. “For those last 27 minutes, our guys strapped them back up and fought hard to not allow that winning goal.”The Hoosiers outshot OSU 14-5, including an 8-1 advantage in the second period. Siegfried made five saves.The two teams seemed to have some bad blood, as things got chippy as time went on. Indiana accumulated a staggering 28 for calls, including four yellow cards for Indiana. OSU amassed 12 total fouls.“They were getting a little upset that they are the No. 7 team in the country and we were putting the pressure on them and taking the wind out of them,” Kohl said. “Things got a little chippy, but nothing we couldn’t handle.”Bluem said he was very proud of how his team played despite missing a few of their key guys to injuries.“We have a lot of talent sitting on our bench that can’t play,” Bluem said. “Yaw (Amankwa) couldn’t play today. Danny (Jensen) is out. (Marcus) McCrary is out. The guys that are being called upon in their place are really doing a great job.”Next up for the now 4-9-1 Buckeyes is a road contest against No. 4 Louisville on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. read more

Death of former MEPs son inspires establishment of Catholic university in Ireland

first_imgFORMER MEP KATHY Sinnott has said the idea to set up Ireland’s only Catholic liberal arts college was inspired by her son who died in a tragic accident in 2009.A group in the United States has been formed to raise funds for the Newman College Ireland and to pay for scholarships to allow students to attend without paying huge fees. Sinnott said those involved in the project have already started scouting locations for the college but “we haven’t discovered it yet”.Speaking to she said the idea for the four year college, which will offer courses in theology, philosophy, history, literature, maths and natural science, was inspired by her son Kevin, who passed away five years ago. The 22-year-old drowned while trying to swim across a lake near his college.She said he had been through the Irish education system and “didn’t do so well”.He went to a liberal arts college in America, he got a good scholarship and I wanted him to absolutely blossom. He discovered talents there he didn’t know he had. “At his funeral I was thinking how happy he was over the last couple of years and how some of his friends in Ireland didn’t have the same opportunity,” she continued. “Some were doing subjects they wanted to do when they were 16 but changed their minds and I just thought people in Ireland should have this.”ScholarshipsSinnott explained that the college will offer students a chance to major in a particular topic of their interest but they will also be given an education in the base subjects, like theology and history.On a website set up for the college, it says it expects to be able to award students substantial scholarship aid. It also said students will be encouraged “to learn the unity of truth, and to see the goodness, truth and beauty of creation, as well as the inviolable dignity of human life, which is threatened in our time by an eclipse of the sense of God”.The project’s Facebook page promises the college will “form the next generation ot Catholic leaders; ethical businessmen, mothers and fathers, priests and religious eager to serve God.”Sinnott said the project is still in the early stages now and fundraising is expected to pick up once a site for the college has been selected and plans are more concrete. However she said the group is also hoping to collect 3.5 million memorares, as the college “is going to be built on prayer”.Read: Martin: “Insensitive” Quinn should “lay off” schools over religion>Read: Demand from parents leads to four new multi-denominational schools>last_img read more

Apple People will pay 329 for iPad mini because its an iPad

first_imgChoosing a tablet in the 7-inch category is now mainly a choice between a $200 Kindle Fire HD, a $200 Nook HD, a $200 Nexus 7… or a $329 iPad mini. To the budget-conscious consumer who is most likely to buy a 7-inch tablet, the first step in the process of elimination seems pretty obvious. Not to Apple’s marketing team, though.Apple senior VP of marketing Phil Schiller expects throngs of consumers will shill out an extra $129, 65% premium over the standard small-size tablet price because, well, it’s an iPad. Sure, that money gets you an an aluminum case and more internal storage, but some would say those gains are counterbalanced by a lower resolution display, the use of an older SoC, and the possibility of limited availability (at least initially).In an interview with Reuters, Schiller expressed the company’s logic that because people flocked to buy the lowest-end iPad at $399, they will absolutely gravitate to an iPad priced at $329.Of course, this argument is subject to criticism. It would be a great argument if the $329 iPad was very similar to the $399 iPad, but in reality you’re paying 18% less money for 30% less tablet. In addition, in the 7-inch tablet market, Apple comes in as a competitor, not an innovator. The Kindle Fire and Nexus brands have done a nice job of dominating this space. Apple’s logic appears to be very blunt in that it expects people to pay more just because it’s an iPad and it has a lot of apps. It clearly does not see any existing tablet as a true rival.That noted there is little doubt that the new iPad mini will sell out in no time. For the holiday season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see it outsell the more established 7-inch tablets.An argument like “people will pay more just because it’s an iPad” might sound a bit arrogant, but sometimes within arrogance there is truth. The fact that the big stories about the iPad mini reveal are about how no one expected it would be this expensive, is an issue. But will it actually hurt sales?

Delhi has to wait a bit to read

Chinese writer Mo Yan, who has won this year’s Nobel Prize for literature, is relatively unknown to Indian readers and book shops in the capital were Friday scrambling to put his books on their shelves.Books by Mo are not easy to come by, complained a reader.‘I wanted to know about Mo Yan when I heard that he had received the Nobel Prize for literature, but none of the book shops in south Delhi had any of his books,’ Soma Basu, a resident of Greater Kailash, said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’But book shops said they were doing their best to comply with the sudden demand for Mo, who plots his narratives around the socio-historical perspectives of China on massive colourful canvases.Midland, a reputed book retail chain in the capital, is getting copies of Mo’s Garlic Ballads from its publisher, Arcade, in the US.‘Not many people have read Mo Yan. Till this week, he was completely unknown. But since Thursday, readers have been walking into my shop for his books,’ M A Baig, the founder of the chain said. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe bookstore does brisk business in the novels of popular Chinese writer Gao Xinjiang – the Chinese emigre to France who in 2000 was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.‘Three of Gao’s books, Soul Mountain, One Man’s Bible and Buying a Fishing Rod sell fairly well… Now Mo’s books will find takers,’ Baig said.Bahrisons in the capital’s Khan Market expects to receive its first consignment of Mo’s books soon.‘We don’t have any books by Mo Yan but his rival Haruki Murakami, who was in the race for the Nobel Prize, sells very well in the country. Mo Yan is not popular but the Nobel Prize has changed his popularity status in India… By Saturday we hope to get fresh stocks from distributors,’ a spokesperson for Bahrisons said. Crossword, one of the biggest book chains in the capital, does not have Mo Yan on its shelves either.‘Not now… Later,’ said a spokesperson for the Crossword Bookstore at Rajouri Garden in the capital.For online readers, Mo’s Change and Red Sorghum are available on Flipkart and Infibeam.Foreign publishing companies in India are not yet ready to meet any sudden interest in Mo Yan’s novels.A spokesperson for Pan Macmillan said: ‘The publishing house has not yet published any of Nobel Laureate Mo Yan’s books.’‘He is still unknown in India and around the world. But now that he has won a Nobel Prize, it will draw readers to his books,” the spokesperson for Pan Macmillan India said.The acclaimed Red Sorghum: A Novel on China, spanning the saga of three generations of a family in the 1930s, which was made into an Oscar-winning movie, has been published in translation by Penguin US. ‘The book is available in India,’ the publisher said. The book sells because of its popularity on screen.‘The Nobel Prize is a political call these days and the idea of giving one to a Chinese author could be a politically fraught decision in a year which saw the famous Chinese dissident Chen Guang Chen… seek refuge in the American Embassy; [Mo’s] books bring out the other side of China,” senior communications executive Manish Singh, an avid reader of the classics, told IANS.According to reports from China, Mo’s latest and most popular “Frog” about China’s “one child birth control” has sold more than 200,000 copies since it was published in 2009. It is yet to reach the Indian audience in translation. read more

John Boozman (R-Ark.) and Robert Casey (D-Pa.) announced the introduction of bipartisan companion legislation to H.R. 4614, the Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act of 2016 (“MARCA”). The companion legislation, designated S.2940, authorizes Medicare coverage of procedures performed by radiology assistants (RAs) in states that have laws licensing and establishing the expanded role of RAs.Medicare is trying to identify value-based, efficient solutions to improve patient outcomes. The RA role is an example of such a solution. RAs extend the reach of medical staff, enabling on-site radiologists to focus on the services that only radiologists can provide. This bill preserves medical education programs, jobs and patient access to medical imaging services. These patient access challenges are certain to worsen as the number of Medicare beneficiaries grows.“Utilizing the expertise of radiology assistants is critical to healthcare delivery. These healthcare professionals are well qualified to address the increased demand in medical imaging services and fill the gap in the shortage of radiologists, particularly in rural areas. Ensuring the procedures performed by RAs are covered by Medicare is commonsense to providing seniors with the specialized services they deserve,” Boozman said.H.R. 4614 is bipartisan legislation that was introduced by Congressmen Pete Olson (R-Texas); Mike Doyle (D-Pa.); Reichert (R-Wash.) and Pascrell (D-N.J.). The House bill has 25 bipartisan cosponsors.Boozman was joined at the press conference by radiologists from institutions throughout Arkansas, as well as the heads of various supporting organizations, including the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT).For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more center_img Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
