We have to see how the bone healing is, that’s always how it is when something [has] broke, but from his movements it looks nearly normal.”But there are still a few days to go until we can have them in team training, until [Joel] is ready for contact, which for a centre-half is pretty important. Until then we will make all the fitness work.”The good thing is Joel can do all the fitness work already since a week or so ago, so that means when he will be back he will be 100 percent fit. Then he has to get rhythm and everything will be fine.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Miami Trolls Duke With “Shrug” Emoticon Following ACC’s Suspension Of Referees

first_imgSunday afternoon, the ACC issued an official statement on the end of Saturday’s Miami vs. Duke contest, which featured great controversy. The league has chosen to suspend the entire officiating crew two conference games after it was determined that four mistakes (two of which were crucial to the outcome) were made during the final play of the game. For those unaware, Miami returned a kickoff for the game-winning touchdown as time expired.Well, Miami, which benefited from the errors, has responded to the news on Twitter. Duke fans won’t like what they see.¯\_(ツ)_/¯— Miami Hurricanes (@MiamiHurricanes) November 1, 2015And this is the Hurricanes official Twitter account moments after that statement was released: https://t.co/nGJkhDK5wz— Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) November 1, 2015That, for those who don’t use social media often, is a “shrug” emoticon. It basically translates to “oh well.”It does not appear that the ACC is going to change the outcome of the game. It’s a tough break for Blue Devils fans.last_img read more

Colten Boushies aunts say RCMP harassing Red Pheasant residents

first_imgChris Stewart APTN National NewsWhile the community of Red Pheasant tries to mourn the loss of Colten Boushie several people say it’s not helping that the RCMP have upped patrols that includes pulling people over and shinning spotlights into homes.Residents on the Saskatchewan First Nation say it’s harassment.“Getting stopped for no cause,” said resident Tash Baptiste, and Boushie’s aunt. “Just like last night. They asked why they were driving up and down … this is a reserve. We have relatives at every house. It’s not a crime to jump in your vehicle and go visit somebody.”Boushie was shot and killed Aug. 9 in a farmer’s field a short distance away in Biggar, about an hour west of Saskatoon. Gerald Stanley has been charged with second-degree murder and is out on bail pending a trial.The shooting sparked a massive outcry over racism in the province.Sabrina Peeaychaw, also Boushie’s aunt, said she’s seen RCMP out patrolling.“Stopping in people’s yards. Flashing their spotlights in their homes. Pulling into yards, as well as peeking into windows,” said Peeaychew.Peeaychew is also on the Red Pheasant council and said she called the RCMP to complain.“It has become a problem. I thought I would take it upon myself and question them. The RCMP returned my call stating they spoke to their constables. They are only to come to our community if there are any calls for them to be here,” she said.Stanley’s next court date is scheduled for Sept. 13.last_img read more

BC man charged in alleged spambot attack on video streaming platform

first_imgCOQUITLAM, B.C. – A British Columbia man has been charged with mischief after a U.S.-based social media platform was allegedly flooded with thousands of spam messages, effectively shutting down many of its channels.Brandan Lukus Apple of Coquitlam was charged Dec. 1 with one count of mischief to computer data after the alleged cyberattack.The 20-year-old man is also named in a B.C. Supreme Court civil lawsuit filed last April by Twitch Interactive Inc. that alleges he was behind an attack by so-called spambots last year, where unsolicited messages flooded more than a thousand of its channels, disabling the company’s chat feature.The Twitch website says the company is the world’s leading social video service using members to stream video games to 100 million viewers who can take part in game culture through real-time chats and discussions.A B.C.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn resigns amid sex misconduct claims

first_imgLAS VEGAS, Nev. – Facing investigations by gambling regulators and allegations of sexual misconduct, billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn has stepped down as chairman and CEO of the resorts bearing his names.The Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts in a statement said Wynn’s resignation Tuesday was effective immediately. It came less than two weeks after the Wall Street Journal reported that a number of women said Wynn harassed or assaulted them and that one case led to a $7.5 million settlement.“In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself the focus of an avalanche of negative publicity,” Wynn said in a written statement. “As I have reflected upon the environment this has created — one in which a rush to judgment takes precedence over everything else, including the facts — I have reached the conclusion I cannot continue to be effective in my current roles.”Wynn has vehemently denied the report’s allegations, which he attributes to a campaign led by his ex-wife. An attorney for Elaine Wynn has denied that she instigated the news report.Wynn now faces investigations by gambling regulators in Nevada and Massachusetts, where the company is building a roughly $2.4 billion casino just outside Boston. The company earlier said a committee of independent directors would investigate the allegations that surfaced Jan. 26.Shares of Wynn Resorts’ China arm, Wynn Macau Ltd., were suspended from trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange on Wednesday in Asia. Gambling regulators in Macau, the world’s biggest casino market, said they were officially notified about the resignation.Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau also said in a statement that its director, Paulo Martins Chan, and the city’s financial and economic secretary, Lionel Leong, met last week with Wynn Macau Executive Director Linda Chen to request a detailed explanation of the allegations and demand Wynn notify it of any “result, progress or important information” from the investigation within an unspecified time frame.The company, which said previously it would co-operate with the regulator’s requests, operates two casino-resorts in the Chinese enclave that generate about two-thirds of its total revenues.A wave of sexual misconduct claims against prominent figures in entertainment, media and politics gained momentum last fall in the aftermath of articles detailing movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged rape and harassment. But Wynn is the first CEO and founder of a major publicly held company to come under scrutiny since the Weinstein allegations surfaced.Wynn is a titan in Sin City and played a major role in the revitalization of the Las Vegas Strip in the 1990s. He built the Bellagio, Treasure Island and Mirage before he sold his Mirage Resorts company in 2000. Two years later, he founded Wynn Resorts, which now operates two luxurious casino-resorts in the city and is in the process of building a lake and hotel development called Paradise Park on the site of a former golf course.Wynn’s two Macau casinos include the older Wynn Macau near the former Portuguese colony’s historic old town, and the Wynn Palace, which in 2016 became the latest opulent resort to open in the new district of Cotai, joining lavish developments by rivals including Las Vegas Sands.In announcing Wynn’s resignation, the company’s board of directors made clear it had done so “reluctantly.”“It is with a collective heavy heart, that the board of directors of Wynn Resorts today accepted the resignation of our founder, CEO and friend Steve Wynn,” said Boone Wayson, who was named non-executive chairman of the board. Matt Maddox, the company’s president since 2013, was named CEO effective immediately.Details of Wynn’s separation agreement were not immediately disclosed.Wynn resigned as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee a day after the allegations were published.Since 2013, Wynn has contributed nearly $2.4 million to GOP candidates and party organizations around the country, including Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and 2017 special election winners. Some Republicans in Congress, including Nevada’s Dean Heller, have already announced they are donating contributions they received from Wynn to charity.___Associated Press business writer Kelvin Chan in Hong Kong contributed to this report.___Follow Regina Garcia Cano on Twitter at https://twitter.com/reginagarciakNOlast_img read more

Realty poll plank

first_imgWhile the issue of nationalism in the wake of Pulwama and air strike continues to dominate the political discourse in the run-up to 2019 general elections, yet growth with good governance remains the main poll plank of ruling BJP, which is showcasing how its reforms have paid rich dividends in the real estate and infrastructure domain, not only contributing significantly to nation’s GDP but also boosting the living standard of masses. Riding high on the theme of New India & transformation through reforms, this year’s interim budget spelt out measures to boost real estate. Not only was the annual income up to 5 lakh made tax free to boost the disposable income of home buyers, but tax exemption on house rents was also hiked to 2.4 lakh to encourage investors to invest in second homes for rental income. The budget also lessened the tax burden of developers by way of extending the exemption of tax levy on unsold inventory, from one year to two years, besides benefits under Section 80-1BA of the Income Tax Act to projects approved till March 31, 2020. With these budgetary incentives together with a substantial cut on GST rate on housing, the government focused on boosting real estate. Also Read – A special kind of bondIn fact, immediately after taking over in 2014, the Modi government demonstrated its commitment to give a boost to the construction and housing sector. In a far-reaching measure, the first budget of the NDA government met the long-standing demand of liberalising FDI norms in the construction sector by reducing the requirement for a built-up area and capital requirement. In yet another significant step, REITs were introduced with tax incentives to unlock a new source of funding for the capital-starved developers. Besides these, the twin measures of increasing home loan interest exemption limit by 50000 rupees and income tax limit by another 50000 rupees were major incentives to boost housing. In the following budgets, infrastructure was given a big push with an investment hike of 70000 crores and setting up of National Investment and Infrastructure Fund. Also Read – Insider threat managementFully recognising that affordable housing is key to meet the severe shortage of housing in the country, the government brought in incentivised policies for affordable housing including providing infrastructure status to it. The reform of demonetisation together with Benami Property Prohibition Act was introduced to stamp out black money from real estate, responsible for an artificial spurt in prices. Further, the reform to regulate real estate through the Real Estate Regulation Act (RERA) was introduced which not only contributed to bringing down realty prices but also brought in transparency and fair play into real estate transactions. The government launched the flagship mission of ‘Housing for All by 2022’. And to ensure that housing was within the reach of masses, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) was launched with Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) offering home loan interest rate subsidy of up to 2.67 lakh. This has significantly helped to make homes affordable. The gains of PMAY are visible to all in terms of delivery of record number of homes, though they are far short of 2022 targets. On the infrastructure front, the record construction of over 25 km a day of highways is another achievement which Modi government is showcasing. Modi government is now flaunting these reforms to voters ahead of polls. That the government has made real estate, housing and infrastructure as one of its main poll planks, is clearly visible from the hordes of projects/schemes launched in a rush before the introduction of poll code. Among the key metro rail projects given go-ahead were Kanpur & Agra Metro, Phase 4 of DMRC, Dwarka Expressway metro connectivity and extension of Red Line Metro to Ghaziabad. The Dwarka Expressway stuck for years in Delhi area, was given go ahead. In order to provide a big connectivity boost to real estate, regional air connectivity from Hindon Airforce Station in Ghaziabad was started with the operationalisation of civilian flights. The foundation laying of Rs 90000 crore Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and 61000 crores Delhi-Meerut Rapid Rail Project. However, notwithstanding the pre-election real estate and infrastructure bonanza and the positive impact of real estate reforms, only time will tell, how much dividend this poll plank will pay to the ruling party in the parliamentary polls.

Mens Hockey No 6 Ohio State faces rival No 11 Michigan with

Junior forward Mason Jobst (26) becomes a wedge between Michigan’s Quinn Hughes (43) and Dexter Dancs (90) Jan. 26, 2018 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH. Credit: Ethan Clewell | For The LanternThe No. 6 Ohio State men’s hockey will battle arch-rival No. 11 Michigan for the fifth time this season when it meets the Wolverines in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Nationwide Arena.The Buckeyes swept the regular-season series against the Wolverines for the first time since the 1985-86 season. But senior forward Matthew Weis doesn’t see the sweep mattering now with one game separating the teams from the conference final.“Zero. It doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “We got one more game left, it’s do or die. So, I think that’s all our focus is on.”After getting past Michigan State in the quarterfinals, the Buckeyes will go from playing in a three-game series to single-elimination games, which means teams can’t afford a slip-up in focus. Ohio State head coach Steve Rohlik does not foresee that being a problem.“It’s Michigan, that’s really all you got to say,” Rohlik said. “We were fortunate enough to get some bounces and win a few games this year against them. They are playing as well as anybody in the country right now.”The Wolverines are one of the hottest teams in the country, winning seven straight games and taking care of Wisconsin in a quarterfinal series sweep in Ann Arbor, Michigan.Powering Michigan’s recent success are senior forward Tony Calderone and junior forward Cooper Marody. Calderone leads the conference with 23 goals and Marody tops the Big Ten with 32 assists.“Obviously, you look at their top line, Cooper Marody and Tony Calderone. They do a bunch of their scoring,” Weis said. “So, I think, obviously, just be aware when they are out on the ice, but, like I said before, they’re a great team.”A good aspect for any championship-caliber team chasing a title is its depth, and the Buckeyes have six players with double-digit goals. Their top scorers junior forward Mason Jobst (19 goals), sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski (15 goals) and Weis (11 goals) have been difference makers in recent weeks.Even when those players have faltered in scoring, others have picked up the slack with senior forward Christian Lampasso (10 goals) and junior forwards Dakota Joshua (13 goals) and Freddy Gerard (11 goals) giving the team balance.“When those guys are going, we are as confident as any group. When they’re not going we are still pretty confident,” junior defenseman Sasha Larocque said. “We got good depth and we know that, having those guys as hot as they are right now, is huge for us.”This weekend will have a different feel to it than last week because the Buckeyes aren’t playing in the cozy confines of the Schottenstein Center. Instead, they will take on the Wolverines at Nationwide Arena, the home of the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets.“You know it’s an NHL rink and I think, for all us, our goal is to finally hopefully get there,” Weis said. “I mean, it’s pretty cool to play there, but at the end of the day, you just got to look at it as just another game. We got to do our thing to get the ‘W.’”The puck will drop at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and the winner will take on the victor of the other semifinal game between Notre Dame and Penn State. read more

Try to skip school if you value your life.”The user finished the comment with a profane hashtag directed at the high school, then posted another one warning students “I don’t think you guys are gonna wanna hide at the 900s” apparently referring to a cluster of classrooms on the northern end of the school.The comment, which was posted sometime around 4 p.m. Saturday onto a March 22 post congratulating Bonita Vista High’s 2019-20 ASB officers, appeared to have gone unnoticed by authorities and school officials for nearly a whole day.About noon Sunday, Twitter user @AlbertTovar13 tweeted at the Chula Vista Police Department with a screenshot of the comment, which he said was taken by his son.The police department responded thanking the user and said the high school “will be addressing this concern as soon as they can.”  Around the same time as the Police Department’s response, the high school addressed the threat on its ASB Instagram page and its Twitter account. “This afternoon we were made aware of a possible social media threat to our school,” it said on both pages. “We are working with Chula Vista Police who (are) actively investigating this matter. We will update you further as we learn more.” Updated: 7:25 AM KUSI Newsroom, Social Media Threat Made Against Bonita Vista High School Posted: April 7, 2019center_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter April 7, 2019 KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

Drivers in Anchorage Alaska can pay for a parking ticket in school

first_imgEnlarge Image mcdomx/Getty Images Drivers in Anchorage, Alaska can now pay for a parking ticket in pens and pencils, in an effort to help underprivileged kids get enough school supplies, the Anchorage Daily News reports.Specifically, drivers with a ticket that’s under 30 days old can pay their $20 fine by submitting 200 No. 2 pencils or 100 black or blue pens during the next two weeks. Now, before all you Alaskan parking scofflaws start twirling your mustaches and looking at buying pencils by the crate, EasyPark — the company that handles parking enforcement for Anchorage — will only let you pay for one ticket this way.(As a resident of Los Angeles, I want to take a second and imagine living in a place where parking tickets only cost $20. If parking enforcement attempted to offer this kind of alternate payment idea here, the city would likely drown in a sea of Bics and Ticonderogas, but I digress.)”Providing assistance by accepting school supply items for parking citations is a positive start in supporting our local students for a successful school year,” said Demetric Tuggle, parking director for EasyPark, in a statement.If you live in Anchorage and want to pay a ticket off with writing implements, you can go to the EasyPark office at 440 B St. between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays from Friday through Aug. 9.We checked, and no, Ms. Tuggle is not actually a character from a Thomas Pynchon novel, she’s just a lady trying to help the kids in Anchorage, and we support that. If you don’t have a ticket, but you want to donate school supplies anyway, you can contact Helping Us Give School Supplies (Hugss) here.
