He ran an official 4.78 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, which obviously didn’t sit well with scouts around the league.Despite not being drafted earlier this year, Holyfield proved on Thursday that he can be a reliable weapon in the backfield. Not only can he take hits from defenders, but he can be shifty at times.Holyfield will try to keep momentum on his side when the Panthers face the Bills next Friday.

Unfortunately for the Georgia product, he went undrafted this spring.Following the conclusion of the draft, the Carolina Panthers signed Holyfield to their roster.It’s too early to determine whether or not he’ll make the 53-man roster, but he did shine in his preseason debut.

Green Paper on Revised Youth Policy to be Tabled by SeptemberGreen Paper on Revised Youth Policy to be Tabled by September

first_imgMinister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna, says a Green Paper on the revised National Youth Policy could be tabled in Parliament by September.Miss Hanna, who made the disclosure while contributing to the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on June 18, said the Concept Paper and Cabinet Submission are to go to the Human Resource Committee of Cabinet before the end of this month.She noted that the policy development process is expected to be completed by August this year.The Minister informed that the review of the policy is in response to the changes within the policy environment and the need to take into account the emerging issues that affect youth development nationally.The National Youth Policy places focus on entrepreneurship, skills training and preparing young people for the world of work in the global village. It is also expected to provide insight into developmental models and programmes for young people.Revision of the policy is being informed by the findings of the 2010 Jamaica National Youth Survey, which was commissioned by the Government under the Youth Development Programme loan agreement signed with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).Conducted by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN), the survey provides a holistic profile of young people age 15 to 24 years, and seeks to aid in the strengthening of existing programmes designed for youth development throughout the island.It focuses on, among other things, unattached youth; young people living and working on the street as well as those in state care; young people with disabilities; entrepreneurial and employment opportunities; and spirituality and values.Contact: Athaliah Reynolds-Bakerlast_img read more

New UN disaster relief fund has committed over 170 million since MarchNew UN disaster relief fund has committed over 170 million since March

In an update today on the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that $96.6 million had been disbursed for new or rapidly deteriorating emergencies including natural and man-made disasters in 16 countries, from Afghanistan and Chad and Lebanon and Timor-Leste. A further $76.8 million has been earmarked for under-funded emergencies in16 countries, including Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Haiti. Some countries are on both lists.Nearly $274 million of CERF’s $450 million target reserve have been pledged by 52 countries since it was launched in March as part of key UN reforms sought by Secretary-General Kofi Annan to ensure swifter responses to humanitarian emergencies, with adequate funds made available within three to four days as opposed to up to four months or more under the previous $50-million fund.The General Assembly approved it in December. Underscoring CERF’s importance, UN officials noted at the time that under the previous system it took four months between the lifting of access restrictions in Sudan’s strife-torn Darfur region and the commitment of funds to the relief appeal. In the meantime, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) climbed to a then high of 1.6 million and mortality rates rose above emergency levels. In the case of locust swarms infesting the African Sahel area in 2004, a $9 million appeal by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in February to spray larvae and prevent their spread was inadequately funded. That summer, the locusts multiplied throughout eight countries and FAO had to revise its appeal upwards to $100 million. As it is a grant-giving facility, a replenishment conference is being organized for 7 December at UN Headquarters in New York. read more

Thousands continue to make perilous journey from Horn of Africa to YemenThousands continue to make perilous journey from Horn of Africa to Yemen

“The crossing from the Horn of Africa to Yemen is one of several deadly sea routes worldwide that UNHCR watches closely,” spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Adrian Edwards, told reporters in Geneva.“Hundreds of people, including Syrian refugees, have died in recent months crossing the Mediterranean to Europe. In Southeast Asia, just last weekend, dozens of people were reported missing after their boat capsized off the coast of Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal.”Yemen has seen six successive years of high arrivals by sea. Since 2006, when UNHCR started collecting data, more than half a million asylum seekers, refugees and migrants have travelled by sea to Yemen. Most are Ethiopians, citing the difficult economic situation at home and often hoping to travel through Yemen to the Gulf States and beyond. Somalis arriving in Yemen are automatically recognized as refugees by the authorities, while UNHCR has helped determine the refugee status of other asylum seekers, including from Ethiopia, Eritrea, and other countries.UNHCR is encouraging cooperation among countries affected by mixed migration, and is supporting the Yemeni Government to organize a conference next week on asylum and migration together with the International Organization for Migration. The three-day conference will take place in Sana’a, with participants from Governments from the Horn of Africa, Gulf States, donor countries, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and institutions such as the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat.“The aim of the Yemen conference is to establish a regional plan to help manage mixed migration between the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula,” Mr. Edwards said. The objectives of the plan include, saving lives, ensuring better protection systems for asylum seekers and refugees, strengthening law enforcement against smuggling and trafficking networks, increasing funding for assisted-voluntary-returns programmes, and raising awareness of the dangers of irregular migration. read more

Canada Government asks miners to Crush It with new challengeCanada Government asks miners to Crush It with new challenge

first_imgCanada’s government, through Natural Resources Canada, has challenged the mining industry to come up with a new clean technology solution that cuts energy consumption for crushing rock.The C$10 million ($7.6 million) “Crush It! Challenge” is aimed at tackling the disproportionate amount of energy used in mining to extract valuable minerals, NRC said, while helping the country transition to a low-carbon economy.The process of crushing mined rock has not fundamentally changed in more than a century; consumes more than 50% of the total energy used in a mining operation; is the industry’s largest operational cost; and is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions from mining, according to the NRC.“Finding and advancing innovative solutions that reduce energy use for crushing and grinding mined rock will reduce pollution, improve productivity and help our mining industry become more competitive,” the NRC said.The 25-month Crush It! Challenge, will see up to 12 semi-finalists selected to pitch their concept at Goldcorp’s #DisruptMining event in March 2019 – an event that coincides with the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention. A ‘Challenge Jury’ made up of key experts from the Canadian mining sector will select the top six finalists, who will each receive up to C$800,000 to build and test their cleantech solution. The Challenge Jury will, ultimately, choose the best breakthrough clean technology and award the winner a C$5 million prize grant.“This initiative will mobilise new ideas from inside and outside the mining industry to modernise an important energy consuming process and will grow the cleantech sector to enhance Canada’s mining innovation ecosystem as part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to transition to a low-carbon economy,” the NRC said.For this challenge, the NRC will be collaborating with Goldcorp and the Centre of Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI), two industry champions who will spread the word on this unique initiative and enable its success.The Crush It! Challenge is the fourth of five clean technology challenges under the NRC’s Cleantech Impact programme, part of Impact Canada. It is part of the government’s commitment to deliver meaningful results for Canadians through measurable economic, environmental and social outcomes. Cleantech Impact will invest C$75 million over four years in the five challenges.last_img read more

Leaked specs say HP Topaz will support LTE wireless sharingprinting the cloudLeaked specs say HP Topaz will support LTE wireless sharingprinting the cloud

first_imgToday’s a good day for tablet spec leaks. After Amobil’s earlier scoop spilling the literal guts of the HTC Flyer, Pre Central has just done the same for HP‘s much-anticipated webOS tablet, the Topaz.Here’s what we’re looking at. Inside, the Topaz will boast a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, which will make it capable of 1080p video and integrated GPS functionality. 512MB of DDR2 memory will help keep that Snapdragon running along at a swift pace. Internal storage options will be 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, with the possibility of a 128GB model coming soon.AdChoices广告The 9-inch display will run at an iPad-like resolution of 1024 x 768 and use Gorilla Glass. A 1.3MP front-facing camera will give the Topaz video chat functionality. Interestingly, the Topaz is slated to come not only in WiFi and 3G flavors, but also support LTE (with CDMA coming later). Even more interesting: the Pre‘s excellent Touchstone inductive charging station is getting an impressive buff into something more akin to Apple‘s AirPrint and AirPlay initiatives. Check out what it will be capable of:• Wireless charging similar to what we have now• Wireless picture sharing• Wireless website sharing• Wireless audio streaming via Bluetooth to speaker dock• Wireless map and directions• Wireless music sharing from Palm smartphone (eg Broadway) to Topaz• Wireless contact sharing• Wireless printing• Wireless video streaming from Touchstone video dock to VGA or HDMI out• Wireless video game playing via Touchstone video dockPretty incredible. The HP Topaz is looking like a winner. We still don’t have price or release dates, but if HP can get this bad boy out soon, we may have our first non-Apple tablet with a feature set capable of challenging the iPad.Read more at Pre Centrallast_img read more

We didn’t do that.“Chievo were very aggressive and ran big risks at the back as a result, so we had to make more vertical passes and cut their defence open. I have told the players that in those situations, if there is the option for a through ball, we should take it.“It’s fundamental to play this way that the forwards help the team, that we remain solid and don’t leave gaps between the lines. There are risks with through balls, we often read it well tonight and caught Chievo offside repeatedly.”Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.Kolarov bowed to the fans. Was it sarcastic or a genuine attempt to make up with the ultras?“I think it was a great gesture, to apologise to the fans after what happened, but once again I need to point out this lad played for a month with pain-killing injections. He could barely walk when he arrived at training and would play because we needed him.“He can say the wrong thing sometimes, but he’s a great professional and nobody can complain about his approach on the field.”Dzeko found the net and hit the crossbar, but still has only five Serie A goals this season.85′ | ♻️ | Third and final substitution for the Giallorossi…⬅️ Stephan El Shaarawy➡️ Justin Kluivert0-3 | #ChievoRoma pic.twitter.com/kvD7gWsR5h— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) February 8, 2019last_img read more

Two Vancouver engineers wising up with EinsteinTwo Vancouver engineers wising up with Einstein

first_imgSudhakar Kudva and Sang Park — both engineers, fathers, and immigrants — met in 2007, when their mutual passion for strong math education attracted them to a meeting to discuss new statewide math standards in public schools. That chance meeting would lead, four years later, to their launch of an after-school education program they call EinsteinWise. The Vancouver-based “brain training center” melds the ancient game of chess and the modern technology of the computer tablet into a K-6 program that encompasses math, Mandarin Chinese, Lego robotics, and even yoga. Kudva , 56, and Park, 52, are in late stages of testing their math software and hope over time to expand to reading and other basic study areas. Longer term, their dream is that their work will be incorporated into public school curriculums.They’ve struggled to promote their business’s first location, tucked in a shopping mall just off 192nd Avenue, resorting to placing fliers on doors in nearby neighborhoods and ads in family magazines. But the two men, highly accomplished in their professional fields, say they want to help raise American technical education standards to match those of rising Asian nations. Drawing on their business backgrounds, they see improved education in math and the sciences as critical to America’s economic competitiveness.“The way I see education, there needs to be a lot of basics built up early — vocabulary, writing, grammar, multiplication, math skills,” Kudva said during an interview with both men at the spacious EinsteinWise school, as a group of children played chess nearby. Kudva is firm in his belief that parents and teachers should insist that students learn the fundamentals of math and other foundational subjects, rather that letting them sidestep basics at an early age to pursue their own perceived talents.last_img read more

Initial groundworks are underway for the 2020 program.Costa says that its overall China rollout is tracking to the initial five-year plan, adding that market acceptance for blueberry remains strong with raspberry and blackberry undergoing further market development.OutlookLooking ahead, Costa says that “substantial progress” continues to be made for both the near- and long-term across the five core Australian categories with each presenting value accretive growth prospects. The international business unit has now also become a “significant earnings contributor”.During February, Costa said it experienced “solid price recovery” across its categories from the earlier challenging period.At this early stage, the outlook for market, crop performance and weather conditions are “generally positive”, and the company expects profit growth of at least 30% in 2019.Costa has now transitioned to a calendar year reporting period which it says better reflects planning, revenue generation and reporting cycles. Australia’s largest fruit and vegetable company, Costa Group, saw profits decline by 75% year-on-year in its first financial half but is expecting a strong performance in 2019 amid the development of numerous growth projects both domestically and internationally.Profit for the six months to Dec. 30, excluding material items and amortisation, dropped from AUD$29 million to AUD$7.1 million, while revenue for the same period was down 2.3% at AUD$477.6 million.It attributed the lower profits to factors including an off-year for citrus and a disappointing raspberry performance.Its consolidation of Morocco-based African Blue and additional pre-harvest investments in China and Morocco also affected the period’s financial results.Expansion plansCosta is currently undertaking various domestic expansion plans for its major categories – berries, citrus, avocados, mushrooms and tomatoes – as well as growth projects in China and Morocco.The company has completed its 2018-19 Australian planting program of 47 hectares of berries, of which a little more than half are blueberries. In 2019 it expects higher volumes of its premium Arana blueberries, the introduction of long cane raspberry production aimed at smoothing the traditional summer peak, and the launch of a new blackberry product amid larger volumes of the Elvira and Victoria varieties.In blueberries, Costa has been targeting the shoulder season and this year expects to see greater production driven by improved yield in Far North Queensland and incremental planted area in Western Australia. It says that 14 hectares of substrate plantings in Tasmania will contribute from 20020.For citrus, in December 2018 Costa acquired Nangiloc Colignan Farms in northwestern Victoria for AUD$50 million, with the initial harvest from January exceeding expectations. The 567-hectare farm includes 240 hectares of citrus, 204 of table grapes, and 123 of wine grapes.In its avocado business, Costa has been working on vertically integrating the segment and developing its Lovacado brand launched last year. It has also planted 26 new hectares in Far North Queensland and New South Wales, expects greater exports over the coming years and around a 10% boost in production on its own farms in 2019 as trees mature.

Spokesman accuses Akinci of distorting facts about CransMontanaSpokesman accuses Akinci of distorting facts about CransMontana

first_imgTurkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci is distorting the facts about what happened in Crans-Montana, Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said on Thursday.In a written statement in response to comments by Akinci earlier in the day, Christodoulides said the Turkish Cypriot leader made “distorted and untrue references” in an attempt to blame President Nicos Anastasiades for the failure of the Swiss talks on July 7 by suggesting the latter was not ready for a solution.“It is obvious that the Turkish Cypriot leader attempts to justify the Turkish side’s intransigent positions – including his own demands – for the continuation of the Treaty of Guarantees, the intervention rights and the permanent presence of Turkish troops in Cyprus,” the spokesman said.He said the Turkish side had been unclear in its positions on territorial adjustments with the return of only part of Morphou and without the return of the Maronite villages.“We do not wish to comment on the role or the non-existence of a role of Mr Akinci in what happened during the crucial negotiations in Crans Montana. It would be preferable if Mr Akinci, rather than making such unsubstantiated references, to reflect on whether his stance helps the Turkish Cypriot community, and on how he really safeguards the future of the Turkish Cypriots with approaches that are fully in line with those of Turkey,” the spokesman added.Everyone is judged at the negotiating table by their proposals and their overall approach to the solution of the Cyprus problem, he said. “In Crans Montana, the Greek Cypriot side was the only one to submit concrete proposals within the framework of the UN Secretary-General which, unfortunately, received no response from the Turkish side, neither in writing nor orally”.Akinci was quoted as saying on Thursday that the Greek Cypriot side was reluctant in all three rounds of negotiations, in Mont Pelerin, Geneva and Crans Montana and said this was obvious to the UN, the EU and to third parties.“The Greek Cypriot side was not ready for this. That is why there is a lot of fights about Eide’s rhetoric. They [Greek Cypriots] are very uncomfortable that one of the UN is saying this,” Akinci claimed.He said he did not want to get in the middle of Anastasiades and UN envoy Espen Barth Eide “flying at one another’s throat”.However, he said that Anastasiades thought at Mont Pelerin last December that the Turkish Cypriot side would not have taken the initiative and “the other side panicked” when the Turkish side accepted 29.2 per cent when maps were exchanged.Akinci also said that Anastasiades asked everyone to leave the room and when they were alone, he told him: “I beg your pardon; I am not ready for this”.“We were on scheduled flights, they went with their team with a private plane. He wanted to talk with Athens. Go talk and come back, we told him. They asked for a period of ten days. He even used the name of the leader of Akel [as an excuse] and that they had internal political quarrels, but the whole issue was that they did not want to take the step,” said Akinci. Later in Geneva in January, the step back was taken by Greece.“Greece, and the Greek Cypriot side then went to Crans-Montana with the belief that Turkey would not make an opening,” Akinci said.“We showed flexibility… The UN, the EU and the third parties also saw this. The Greek side was not ready for that either. That’s why there are a lot of fights about Eide’s rhetoric. They are very uncomfortable that one of the UN is saying this,” he added.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
