Verstappen wins chaotic German Grand Prix

first_imgHockenheim (Germany): Max Verstappen took full advantage of his rivals’ calamities on Sunday to win an epic, rain-lashed and wildly-spectacular German Grand Prix for Red Bull ahead of Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari. The 21-year-old Dutchman secured his second win of the season and seventh of his career, finishing ahead of four-time world champion Vettel, who had started 20th and last on the grid. New dad Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso was third as he secured only his third Formula One podium.

Hamilton eventually finished 11th after making six pit-stops as he missed out on a points finish for the first time in 23 races while Verstappen continued his rich streak of consistency.

Romain Grosjean was eighth for Haas ahead of Antionio Giovinazzi of Alfa Romeo and Kevin Magnussen who was 10th for Haas. “It was amazing, but really tricky out there,” said Verstappen, who made four pit-stops and survived a complete 360-degrees spin. “To make the right calls, you had to be focussed. We put on the slick tyres and we had a 360! But it was alright.” Vettel, for whom the result brought redemption after he had crashed out while leading in heavy rain last year, said: “It was a long race and at some stages if felt like it was never-ending. I am just very happy.” Kvyat confirmed that he became a father on Saturday night when his partner Kelly gave birth to a daughter. He said: “It is amazing to be back on the podium and incredible for Toro Rosso, after so many years.” After the record-breaking heat, the race began in steady rain with the field on full wet tyres behind a Safety Car through four formation laps before a standing start. The conditions did nothing to deter Hamilton who made a near-perfect start from his 87th pole position. The race distance was reduced to 64 laps as the spray rose high in plumes throughout the pack, Vettel romping forward from 20th to pass six cars in the first five corners. Leclerc, in the other Ferrari, rose to sixth from 10th on the opening lap. Hamilton led by two seconds from Bottas after lap one, Verstappen having made a poor start, as the field jostled for space and grip, Sergio Perez spinning backwards into the stadium entry wall and damaging his Racing Force. That required a Safety Car intervention for three laps, during which the leaders pitted for intermediates, before racing resumed. After 25, Verstappen pitted for medium compound slicks, a gamble by Red Bull. The Dutchman complained vigorously about his tyres before spinning at the final corner and recovering. Another Virtual Safety Car was then deployed briefly, as Hamilton pitted for softs from the lead, before Leclerc went off at Sachs Curve. The Monegasque screamed aloud as Vettel pitted, returning to ‘inters’, before Hamilton went off, snapping his front wing. The Englishman recovered, cutting across the circuit into the pit lane. He was repaired and fitted with ‘inters’ before re-joining fifth behind Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Bottas and Albon. Hamilton was given a five-second penalty for missing a bollard at the pits entry, but he was soon back to third behind the Dutchman and Bottas. Hulkenberg slid off at the final corner to instigate another Safety Car outing that heralded Verstappen, and Vettel, in 10th, pitting for fresh inters. Racing resumed on lap 46, Verstappen pulling clear before pitting for slicks, followed by Bottas, Sainz, Gasly and Albon. Hamilton led before he pitted on lap 47, leaving Stroll, who pitted for slicks under the Safety Car, to lead before Verstappen passed him. Hamilton fell to 12th, having taken his penalty. “How’s this gone so bad?” asked Hamilton. Mercedes’ nightmare was not over and their anniversary weekend ended with Bottas spinning at Turn One. Out came the Safety Car for a fourth time as Hamilton pitted again — leaving him to make a failed bid for a top ten finish.last_img read more

Montrealers file legal action contesting restrictions on medical aid in dying

first_imgMONTREAL – Nicole Gladu wants to die at home, surrounded by friends, with a glass of rose champagne in one hand and a canape of foie gras in the other.And now the former journalist and trade unionist, who is slowly being robbed of her ability to function because of complications from childhood polio, is fighting the Quebec and Canadian governments for that chance.“At age 71, I am concerned far more by the quality of my life than by its extension,” she told a news conference Wednesday.“What I am asking is respect for all those like me, who have been watching death in the face for a long time in a progressive, rather than spectacular fashion.”Gladu is one of two incurably ill Montrealers who are taking legal action to challenge the constitutionality of the Canadian and Quebec laws on assisted dying.She and Jean Truchon filed an action in Quebec Superior Court on Tuesday, arguing the eligibility requirements for physician-assisted death are too restrictive and violate their rights to the procedure.At the news conference alongside their lawyer, Jean-Pierre Menard, they explained they suffer from degenerative diseases but are not eligible for medical aid in dying because their deaths are not reasonably foreseeable and they are not at the end of their lives.They want the court to allow doctors to provide them with medical aid in dying and to invalidate the articles of the laws setting the criteria.Truchon, who was born with cerebral palsy, said he managed to live a fulfilling and independent life until 2012, when he lost the use of his one remaining limb, his left arm.In a statement read aloud by an assistant, the 49-year-old said he would like to end his suffering and can’t face the prospect of life confined to an institution.“Life in an institution until the end of my days is not made for me,” he said. “I have enjoyed another side of life before and I can no longer endure my misery.”Gladu said that for the last 30 years, post-polio syndrome has led to an ever-growing list of health problems and a deteriorating quality of life.“Each breath has become for me a conscious effort which consumes three-quarters of my waning energy,” she said.“I’d like to die at home… in the company of my friends and with a glass of rose champagne in one hand and a canape of foie gras in the other.”She said that while cancer patients are allowed to refuse treatment, those who suffer from degenerative diseases have no options, because there is no treatment.Menard said Ottawa’s decision to limit medical aid in dying to patients whose death is “reasonably foreseeable” goes against the landmark Supreme Court ruling that paved the way for the legislation.Menard said the ruling, known as the Carter decision, requested the legislation cover competent, consenting adults who had an incurable illness that caused intolerable suffering.“The federal government has decided, against a large part of legal advice, to go against the Supreme Court ruling and against the Charter rights the Supreme Court has recognized to citizens,” he said.He said Gladu and Truchon meet all the other criteria for assisted death and should be allowed to end their suffering.Speaking in Quebec City, the province’s health minister said he welcomed the plaintiffs’ action.“I’m to some extent happy that someone is asking the courts the question, because unfortunately it’s the courts who will decide this,” Gaetan Barrette told reporters at the legislature.In Ottawa, federal Health Minister Jane Philpott said the existing legislation was drafted to strike a balance between respecting the rights of those who want assisted dying and the need to protect vulnerable Canadians.But she said the issue is still under review and the government isn’t ruling out future changes.“We are always open to hearing the views of the court and we are open to hearing the views of Canadians,” she said.— With files from Pierre Saint-Arnaudlast_img read more

Quebec Court of Appeal rules Richard Henry Bains sentence in election shooting

first_imgMONTREAL — Quebec’s Court of Appeal has ruled that the sentence handed down to 2012 Quebec election night shooter Richard Henry Bain will remain unchanged.Bain was convicted of attacking a Parti Quebecois rally on Sept. 4, 2012, killing lighting technician Denis Blanchette outside the Metropolis nightclub as premier-designate Pauline Marois was inside delivering a victory speech.In November 2016, Quebec Superior Court Justice Guy Cournoyer sentenced Bain to life in prison without possibility for parole for 20 years after a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder. He was also found guilty of three counts of attempted murder.Bain’s defence had argued unsuccessfully that he should be found not criminally responsible for the killing.After hearing arguments last October, a five-judge Court of Appeal panel today dismissed the appeals of both the Crown and the defence.Bain’s lawyer had sought a reduction that would have allowed Bain to apply for parole after serving 10 years. The Crown countered that parole eligibility should be increased to 25 years.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Blood test which confirms prostate cancer could prevent 70pc of biopsies

first_imgA simple blood test which confirms the presence of prostate cancer could prevent 70 per cent of painful biopsies, scientists believe.Researchers at Nottingham Trent University and University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust have discovered that the immune system changes when cancer is present, and that difference can be picked up in the blood.Nearly 50,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in Britain, while many thousands more will develop symptoms which will turn out to be harmless.“This test has the potential to spare men with non-cancerous disease or low-risk cancer from unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures and tests,” said Professor Masood Khan, consultant urologist at University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust and Visiting Professor at Nottingham Trent.Men are currently screened for the potential presence of prostate cancer using a blood test which look for prostate specific antigen, a biomarker which rises when the disease is present in the prostate.However readings vary between individuals and naturally rise as people age.The current test is further complicated by the fact that elevated levels of the antigen do not necessarily mean that the man has prostate cancer, while a normal reading does not exclude its presence. Many men are forced to undergo needless biopsies following PSA tests  The new test, which has so far been trialled using samples from 72 men,  would be used following a PSA test to help doctors decide whether a high PSA reading really does mean cancer. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. As well as being able to discount cancer altogether, it has the potential to spare men with no cancer, or low-risk cancer, from having to undergo biopsies and other diagnostic procedures and tests.“Although the PSA blood test is commonly used to test for the presence of prostate cancer, it can be relatively non-specific,” said Professor Graham Pockley, Director of Nottingham Trent University’s John van Geest Cancer Research Centre.“A particular challenge to the clinician is diagnosing the presence of prostate cancer in individuals who do not have symptoms of the disease, but do have a mildly elevated level of PSA in the blood. This study highlights the value of collaborations such as these.”The new test monitors white cells in the blood, which are responsible for protecting the body against infection and cancer. Scientists have developed an algorithm which determines whether cancer is present based on how the cells are reacting.center_img Many men are forced to undergo needless biopsies following PSA tests  Currently, under current government guidelines, men aged between 50 and 69 who have a PSA reading of 3 more are usually sent for a biopsy. But the new test could prevent 70 per cent of operations, which would also bring savings for the health service.The researchers also warned that it is essential that men with low-risk prostate abnormalities are not diagnosed as having prostate cancer which can have adverse psychological and financial consequences and assign these men to unnecessary life-long surveillance. Prostate biopsies are also associated with a five percent risk of urosepsis, a dangerous condition, a severe infection of the urinary tract which can be fatal.The research team is now looking for funding for the next stage of the project, which would involve confirming these results in a larger number of patients and determining whether the same approach can be used to distinguish aggressive from non-aggressive disease.Charities said the research was a step in the right direction.Dr Richard Roope, Cancer Research UK’s GP expert, said: “This research could help spare people who don’t have prostate cancer from further tests.”But it can’t yet tell the difference between life-threatening cancers or harmless ones that can be left alone. This is a step in the right direction, and we look forward to more results from this kind of research.”The work is reported in the international journal Frontiers in Immunology.last_img read more

CPL 2018 Warriors practice game shows promising results

The Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) team gave the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots something to worry about after completing a stunning practice match on Monday evening.GAW Captain Shoaib Malik gets forward during his inningsThe practice match, which was the first of two, saw the Warriors side being pitted against some of Guyana’s best senior players.With the players divided into two teams, the “Shoaib Malik XI” with the likes of Captain Malik, young powerhouse Shimron Hetmyer, Luke Ronchi and newbie Chris Green took on the “Jason Mohamed XI” which featured Akshaya Persaud, Devendra Bishoo, Sohail Tanvir and Trevon Griffith.Shimron Hetmyer launches one of many maximumsPlaying in wet conditions, the “Malik XI” took to the pitch first with openers Ronchi and Rutherford going at the ball from ball one. However, Ronchi went early for nine, but that paved the way for some exciting batting from local boy Hetmyer.With his intentions made clear, the Berbician managed to form crucial partnerships with his fellow Guyanese Rutherford and Captain Malik. After several big hits, it took some magic from Warriors’ go-to-bowler Tanvir in order to send Hetmyer back to the dugout for 66.Captain Shoaib Malik and Shimron Hetmyer have a chat between oversNevertheless, Malik (47) and Rayad Emrit (10) pressed on to take the score to 187 from their allotted 20 overs.Newcomer to the team, Chris Green, soon had his time to shine as he stepped up to bowl the first over to the Mohamed XI. The South African, coupled with Guyanese Devendra Bishoo, stifled the Jason Mohamed-led side, with both of them picking up two wickets a piece.Shimron Hetmyer turns one down the leg sideAt the end of the match-up, Coach Johan Botha could be seen smiling and commending the players on a job well done.The Warriors will put their skills to the test one last time before the beginning of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2018, with another practice match scheduled for 18:00h (6pm) today at the Providence National Stadium.

A quarter of Irish spending on groceries is now with SuperValu

first_imgMORE THAN 25 per cent of shoppers spend on groceries in Ireland is now with SuperValu, new figures show.However, the overall grocery market has declined for the fifth month in a row in its weakest performance since September 2011.The latest report from Kantar Worldpanel show that after the retailer brought all Superquinn stores under the SuperValu brand, it falls just 1.1 per cent behind Tesco in its market share.“Its sales have remained broadly in line with the market, which shows that it has been able to retain its market share while acquiring assets,” Commercial Director at Kantar David Berry said.Now, the main challenge for SuperValu is to convince previously loyal Superquinn shoppers of the merits of the SuperValu brand, and ultimately hold onto their custom.Tesco and Dunnes both saw their market share decline, while Aldi and Lidl increased their share by 1.4 and 0.8 per cent respectively.“Over the past three years Aldi and Lidl have captured a combined 3.8 share points from the competition, and have grown sales by 37% “in an overall grocery market which has grown by just 1%,” David Berry added.Last month: Tesco on the slide, as Aldi & Lidl gain again in the grocery market >More: So long, farewell: Superquinn becomes SuperValu >last_img read more

Quatre tigres blancs sont nés au cirque Amar à Narbonne

first_imgQuatre tigres blancs sont nés au cirque Amar, à Narbonne Le cirque Amar, situé à Narbonne, a accueilli quatre nouveaux pensionnaires, des tigres blancs nés dans la nuit de vendredi à samedi. Un événement exceptionnel pour une espèce menacée qui compte à ce jour moins de 300 spécimens a travers le monde.Comme l’assure Stéphan Gistau, du Cirque Amar, les quatre petits se portent à merveille. “C’est une heureuse surprise, car la maman s’en occupe bien”, a-t-il déclaré avant de préciser que la mère des quadruplés était déjà celle d’un petit Oscar, âgé d’un an et demi. Quant au papa, il s’appelle Ritchy, et pèse quelque 300 kilos.À lire aussiL’étonnante éclosion d’œufs du crapaud de SurinamLes petits tigres blancs n’ont pas encore été baptisés, car “la tradition veut que ce soient des personnalités qui parrainent les naissances de ce type”, explique Stéphane Gistau qui n’a pas encore photographié les bébés, afin de ne pas déranger leur mère.Pendant ce temps, et toujours dans l’Aude, trois lionceaux de la Réserve africaine de Sigean, nés en juin dernier, ont réalisé leurs premiers pas au milieu de leurs congénères adultes. Jason, Jafar et Jinka ont ainsi retrouvé leurs parents, Marius et Carmen, et les treize autres lions qui vivent dans cette réserve. “Il s’agit d’une étape capitale dans la vie de jeunes lions et ça se passe très bien”, a souligné Gabriel de Jésus, le responsable de la communication. Ce premier contact entre de jeunes lions et des adultes est en effet “une étape dangereuse car on ne sait pas comment ces derniers vont réagir”, explique-t-il.Le 7 décembre 2010 à 20:12 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Sauter le petitdéjeuner augmenterait le risque de problèmes cardiaques

first_imgSauter le petit-déjeuner augmenterait le risque de problèmes cardiaquesSelon une étude américaine, sauter son petit-déjeuner de façon régulière augmente de 27% les risques d’avoir une crise cardiaque comparé à ceux qui petit-déjeunent chaque matin.Le petit-déjeuner est un repas crucial qu’il vaut mieux ne pas manquer. C’est ce qu’expliquent régulièrement les médecins à ceux qui ont pour habitude de bouder cette étape le matin. D’après eux, sauter ce repas obligerait le corps à rester à jeun plus longtemps qu’il ne devrait et augmenterait les risque d’obésité et de diabète notamment. Mais cette pratique pourrait aussi accroitre le risque de problèmes cardiaques.À lire aussiVoici pourquoi il faut éviter les aliments ultra-transformésC’est du moins ce qu’affirme une étude américaine tout juste publiée dans la revue de l’American Heart Association. Pour en arriver là, les chercheurs de la Harvard School of Public Health ont étudié les données de près de 27.000 hommes âgés de 45 à 82 ans, ayant accepté de participer à un sondage sur l’alimentation et ses conséquences sur la santé, réalisé entre 1992 et 2008. Ils ont alors constaté que les hommes qui petit-déjeunent le matin de façon régulière présentent moins de risques d’être victimes d’un infarctus ou d’une insuffisance coronarienne.”Sauter le petit-déjeuner peut conduire à certains risques, comme l’obésité, l’hypertension, un fort taux de cholestérol et de diabète, ce qui peut à terme amener à une crise cardiaque”, explique Leah Cahill, principal auteur de l’étude cité par le NouvelObs. Mais les scientifiques ont également noté que “les hommes sautant le repas du matin sont souvent plus jeunes, fumeurs, travaillant à plein temps, célibataires, ayant moins d’activité physique et buvant davantage d’alcool”.Autant de facteurs qui peuvent également jouer dans le risque cardiovasculaire. Par ailleurs, les résultats suggèrent aussi qu’il existerait un lien entre l’heure des prises alimentaires et les maladies cardiaques. Ainsi, manger juste avant de se coucher augmenterait de 55% les risques de souffrir de maladie coronarienne.Le 24 juillet 2013 à 15:47 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Recreation budget cuts look like this

first_imgThe Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Department, faced with a $1.2 million shortfall this winter, had to cut 22 percent of its recreation budget for spring.The department retained programs serving 80 percent of the current participation level in youth-teen programs; senior programs; aquatics; sports; and tennis.However, many programs, including those that did not recover what it cost to provide them, were lost.This list is not exhaustive, but here are some of the major changes:Access to recreation• The youth Sensory Summer Fun Camp was cut. The program served children ages 6 to 12 with autism and other disabilities ,and was the only one of its kind in the metro area.Youth, family programs• The Kid’s First free after-school program will not operate in the 2012-2013 school year, unless Vancouver can find a private sponsor.• The free Summer Playground program will be significantly cut. In the early 2000s, Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation offered this program at 11 locations in Vancouver. In 2011, the program was offered at five locations for four hours, five days a week. The average daily attendance was 60 per site, or 300 overall.This year, the program will be at eight park locations for two hours, two days a week; no meals will be served. Thanks to grants and donations, Evergreen Park will continue with a five-day, four-hour program with meals.• Most family outdoor programs — such as hikes, snowshoeing, canoe trips and camp-outs — will no longer be offered.Teen programs• Teen programs were among the hardest hit, parks officials said Friday. Among those eliminated is the free Teen Late Night program at the Marshall and Firstenburg centers. The program ran from 8 to 11 p.m. every Friday and served more than 200 teens.last_img read more

Pebble CEO emphasizes mining projects changes at legislative meeting

first_imgIn a project update before the House Resources Committee on Monday, Pebble Limited Partnership CEO Tom Collier said the draft environmental impact statement demonstrates that the proposal is an acceptable path forward.“One of the reasons that the current Pebble Project, I think, is perfectly appropriate to go ahead with a public comment period that is twice what the statute requires, is that we took a lot of controversy out of this project,” he said.Collier said the organization has addressed concerns raised about the initial project in the most recent permit application.For example, Pebble designed a smaller mine and will not use cyanide to extract gold. It no longer has plans for facilities in the upper Talarik Creek. Pebble also separated the bulk tailings storage facilities — which would store solid mine waste — from the facilities that would store potentially acid-generating materials.A major objection to the proposed mine is that it could cause irreparable harm to fish habitat in the region. But during the presentation, Collier said that instead of endangering salmon habitat, the mine plan actually optimizes it by treating water and then strategically releasing it during spawning time. He described the process to Rep. Sara Hannan, D-Juneau.“The way it benefits it is, up where this mine site is, a lot of these streams don’t have annual flow. And so what we can do is bring back annual flow to the streams,” Collier said.“But if they don’t have annual flow, then it’s not really a benefit,” Hannan said. “If they don’t have flow, then they are unlikely to have salmon that spawn in them because, naturally, salmon don’t go to streams that don’t have flow that could hold their spawn, at least in the case of sockeye.”Collier responded, “By making them streams that could (hold salmon spawn), we benefit the habitat.”Committee members also posed questions about Pebble’s financial situation. The Canadian company Northern Dynasty Minerals is backing the project, and Collier said a Canadian statute precludes Pebble from disclosing certain financial information.But Rep. Geran Tarr, D-Anchorage, voiced concerns that a lack of information about the project’s financials could impact investors’ decisions as well as permitting.“When people don’t have all of the pieces to put it together to understand how real it is, and if the financing is truly there, and be able to assess the cost-benefit analysis, whether there are potential environmental threats and that kind of thing. I think it’s under those circumstances where the lack of information could have undue influence in both ways,” Tarr said.In response, Collier referenced a published analysis of the project’s economic impact. He added that Pebble will eventually release its financial standing, although he did not say when.Pebble’s application to the Army Corps and the draft EIS are available online. The public can comment online or by mail, or in person at hearings in communities around Bristol Bay and in Anchorage and Homer. Members of the media walking to an exploratory drill rig at the Pebble Mine Exploratory site.

Motionsensing Aperture Science sentry turret created from ingame files

first_imgHello? Could you come over here? No seriously, you have to see this amazing Portal 2 turret replica.It stands 16 inches tall and was created using the in-game 3D files, so it’s as accurate as you can get. The turret comes stood on a base and even has a motion sensor which lights up the eye when you wave your hand in front of it. Unfortunately (fortunately?) it doesn’t have a laser.It also costs extra to have sound. The turret will set you back $299.99 and that’s without sound. If you want the full audio effects it’ll run you $324.99. Gaming Heads, the creators of the turret, don’t list exactly what the sentry robot says but mentions the sound module plays in-game turret activiation, search, auto search, disabled, and tipped over sounds as well as other voice samples.The statue comes inside a full-color box packed with foam to keep your turret safe from harm. It’s cast in high quality poly-stone and is hand-finished and hand-painted. There’s no doubt you get what you pay for.The turrets are just the first in a new Portal 2 line the site is working on. They’ve already immortalized every character from Team Fortress 2 into statues as well as a head-crab from Half Life. Gaming Heads are obviously big fans of Valve.If you can’t afford $300 at once, there’s a 3-month payment plan available. Personally I think it’s worth paying a little bit more for the sound-activated version, but you’ll have to decide for yourself.Unfortunately, the initial run of 350 pieces has sold out so any orders placed moving forward will be put on a waitlist.via Gaming Headslast_img read more

Reverse signs of sun damage

first_imgHeat can damage for your hair and skin, but there are ways to protect it from further damage, suggest experts. Audrey D’souza, TIGI Educator and Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head at Medical Services and Research and Development, Kaya Limited, have rolled out few tricks to save and revive your hair and skin:For hair:4Coloured hair is always an easy target for harsh sunrays. If your coloured hair has been considerably exposed to the sun, there is big chance that the colour may have faded and the hair, dull and dry. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf4To keep the colour in, bring back the shine, and add softness, wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that is equipped to protect hair from thermal damage and colour fading.4Pay extra attention to the hairlines while washing and complete the regime with a cold rinse after conditioning. This helps to close and seal down the cuticle for colored hair.4Treat your hair to a powerful moisture packed shampoo. The hydrating formula targets areas in most need of repair, giving your hair the revival it has been waiting for. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive4If your damaged hair has a straw-like texture, the first thing you can do to make it look better and restore body is to get a trim.4A super short cut is not necessary, you can leave some length. If you are bold enough to chop it all off, a short bob or cute pixie can undo all the damage in one clean sweep.For Skin:4Age spots and freckles are usually an indicator of sun damage that has crept up over time. Even if you are not planning on staying in the sun for a long time, always apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 25 and choose a product that also offers protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. This can help prevent the age spots from darkening. 4Even though the rainy season is approaching, upto 80 per cent of UV radiation can penetrate light cloud cover which is why applying sunscreen is essential even during the monsoon.4To reverse any age spots or freckles caused due to sun exposure use retinol-based products, which help increase skin cell turnover, and in turn help them fade away, or hexinol-based products will also help reduce this appearance.4Apply a rich night cream before bed which will help rejuvenate the skin at night, that’s when the skin repairs itself. The best time to apply moisturiser is when skin is still slightly damp, as this helps seal in the moisture. Ensure you stay hydrated by drinking at least three liters of water daily.4For itchy or irritated skin, the aim should be to get extreme dryness under control. Cleansers and moisturisers, containing skin conditioners that work to create a protective film, and emollients like glycerin and shea butter, help restore an optimal level of hydration.In addition, soothing agents, like bisabolol, allantoin and/or panthenol can help calm itchy, tight or dry skin.4Skin is often dull, uneven and rough after a summer full of constant sun exposure and outdoor activities. When your skin surface is covered with dry, dead skin cells, it needs more than a deeply hydrating moisturiser to make it feel soft again.last_img read more

) And,上海419论坛Sumaira, NBA. He said that there were rising cases of communal clashes in Konshisha, we would have requested for a Bench Warrant to bring him to court, my wonderful wife. Sanjay Singh, A. Last Friday they were out on a boat,But they won the tournament So next year the expectations are to win it again And when they start to have a sticky patch then there’s only one person who’s going to pay the price — the manager Is it sustainable Can you keep changing managers so often No it’s not sustainable (Especially) lower down Inevitably the finances will catch up with you Every league across Europe mirrors a formula where the teams at the top spend the most money buy the best players and the teams at the bottom spend the least money and they struggle to survive That is the formula of football If you are a manager at the bottom of the division and you manage to survive for a number of years you have done a magnificent job It won’t be applauded it won’t be appreciated but you have done an equally job as a Arsene Wenger or Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho How doesthe pressure of losing the job change what a manager has to do with the team What does a manager do to avoid pressure If you are down at the bottom to a certain extent you begin to focus on certain games There are certain games youpickagainst the teams around you When I was at Reading — when we got promoted (to the Premier League) — we very much focused on a mini-league within the league We didn’t budget for any points against the top four-five teams in the league So our season was a 28-game season We wanted to win points from those 28 games So we focused on them That doesn’t mean we gave up on the rest of the games against the big teams We went in to those games with a carefree mentality Not afraid of losing knowing that we might get bashed up 4-0 5-0 on occasion We were prepared for that eventuality and also prepared to bounce back and beat somebody within our league the week after If you look at this season and if you play Man City Man United and Tottenham away on the bounce you could be mentally disturbed as a manger after those three games If beforehand you make the announcement to everybody that we have got nothing to lose in these games everything to gain let’s just go out and have some fun and the real impetus maybe on the game against someone like Stoke a week after you just transfer your concentration to a more specific game where you have a chance of being successful Nowadays managers don’t get a chance to recover from a bad run of form If a club goes through a slump then the manager is changed and thereafter we see an improvement in form So what are the red flags for a manager When do you realise that things may be going wrong or matters may slip out of hand I think the first thing that any manager must have is the mentality of not being frightened of getting the sack Because if you are fearful of losing your job inevitably you will play more defensive football you will play frightened football If you are a lesser team you’ve got to be bold to try and win games because getting three points makes a huge difference To get three points you need to have a winning mentality and not a ‘not get beat’ mentality In terms of red flags you know (it) you get the feeling There’s an atmosphere It may be in the dressing room it may be within the club it may be when you play your home games More in the home games than away games You can just sense this is not good There is not really much you can do about it other thanthe process of doing the job The only thing you can control as a manager is what you do You can’t control results you can’t control anything else So in difficult times concentrate even more on things you can control and time will take care of the rest How does a coach’s family react to a sacking or in the days before one How do you protect them from all the talk that goes on in the media To be absolutely honest I’ve never been sacked I have left a couple of places but never been removed Football management is all-consuming Even here in the ISL right now we have a got a week to our next game but in my mind I’m thinking about it already Even during meals I will have a chat with somebody I think most families of football managers just understand that I think they give the manager time when it’s obvious that he needs alone time I think that families also understand that on occasion it’s great if they can offer a diversion because some managers just descend into becoming too obsessed (with the job) So it’s nice for the manager to see that the most important thing is family Atthe end of the day football is a game even though we treat it with so much importance And it doesn’t matter sometimes Results will just happen you have to accept There is no such thing as good or bad it’s just the way you think that makes it good or bad So having diversions is great having the privacy within your own house is great sometimes Finding the balance on occasion is impossible because kids and wives obviously have their own issues and thoughts so it can be very difficult It’s very hard for young kids in particular But no one forces you to become a football manager it’s a decision you make Sooner or later you have to say yes or no and when you say yes you know what comes with the baggage Do managerial sackings surprise you anymore Oh yes definitely The Watford manager (Marco Silva) who just recently has been sacked that surprised me I would say 95 percent of sackings are fairly predictable It’s just the odd one occasionally when you think "I’m not sure about that" Certainly the Watford one He seemed to be doing well I think there was the possible distraction of the Everton job But I think he is a young manager with a rich future ahead of him so he will be back Do you think this excessive pressure on managers will reduce the length of their careers I’m again going back to the choice thing I think managers have got to want to do it Probably for reasons other than money The money is nice If you are working in the Premier League the money is fabulous But if you ask any manager whether he actually does it for the money most of them would say no It’s just something in their blood I can only relate to myself I never really wanted to be a manager but my career as a player was cut short And what I did after I retired is that I actually went to live in Amsterdam for three months just to get away from everyone and think what I wanted to do with the rest of my life I always wanted to be a teacher So after three months away from everything I just felt there was something in my bones that needed to get football out of my system And here I am almost 40 years later still trying to get football out of my system With most managers there’s something driving you to have that weekly challenge to have that weekly timetable of events to ensure that you prepare the team as well as possible It’s sad sometimes because it is so all-consuming Sometimes I feel your life is determined by your last result For days after a result if you have won you feel calm If you have lost you feel manic you feel I’ve got to do something about it Realistically what you do is the same as what you would have done when you won last time or drew It repeats game after game Although you may feel that you got to do something dramatic about it but materially there’s not much you can do differently Youspoke about the Premier League but in a league like the ISL where the manager has very little time to make an impact does it make sense to sack managers mid-season I think people shouldn’t question the managerial changes They should spend more time on the managerial appointments To a certain extent the appointments in the ISL appear to be random If the clubs the decision-makers spend time on the appointments then they know exactly the kind of manager they are getting they know exactly the kind of personality and they should know exactly the style of play the coach is going to adapt I think in a 18-week league where there is no relegation I don’t see the point of sacking people If you have done your research properly and you’ve done your investigation into the coach properly what is delivered won’t be surprising And I’m sure at the end of this league it will be the teams that have spent the most money who will be at the top and the teams that have spent the least money will be at the bottom Is it important for the ISL clubs to appoint a coach on a long-term deal Would someone like you be willing to sign a longer deal with an ISL club I don’t think in the ISL you can appoint someone on a three-year basis because the actual league itself is not defined If Iasked you when’s next season going to start You don’t have a clue People talk about a Super Cup When is the Super Cup going to start So how on earth can someone plan for three years in advance when you don’t know first and foremost if there is going to be a league Can you guarantee if the ISL will be in existence in three years So I don’t think that (longer contracts) is a necessity If there was a nine-month league then you could have continuity But at the moment the season is not long enough Nobody knows what the season is going to be like So it’s best to do it one season at a time two at the most Jamshedpur FC manager Steve Coppell (L) and Mumbai CIty FC boss Alexandre Guimares (R) are the only managers in the ISL to have managed in the league last season Image Courtesy: Twitter/@JamshedpurFC In the last few years there have been discussions about Indian football that have never happened before We hosted the FIFA U-17 World Cup India’s FIFA rank has gone up So in perception we have grown a bit But have you seen an improvement in the Indian players during your time in India so far I think they have improved Their appreciation of the game the tactics are better So yes there is improvement But it seems to be that Indian football is trying to improve from the top-down Whereas I think the best way to have real long-lasting and meaningful impact would be to improve from the bottom-up First and foremost the facilities for young kids secondly the coaches (need to improve) That would be my way of attacking it but there’s no live TV to watch six-year-olds playing football It is an inverse way of looking at the problem?

Morton Buildings has 1700 employees in more than 100 branches Grafton’s office houses six employees and there also are branches in Valley City Bismarck and Moorhead The company’s existing business model and management structure isn’t expected to change the release statedOn a 6-2 vote the court rejected a challenge to the ban although the justices were divided as to the legal rationaleThe court made it clear it was not deciding the larger and divisive question of whether affirmative action admission policies can be lawful But the decision made it clear that voter-approved affirmative action bans can withstand legal challenges It could encourage other states to pass similar bans and deter challenges to existing bans in seven other statesThe court rejected the argument made by civil right groups that the 2006 Michigan constitutional amendment that passed as a ballot initiative to ban the practice had imposed burdens on racial minorities in violation of the US Constitution’s guarantee of equal protectionMichigan’s Republican attorney general Bill Schuette welcomed the decision saying that the ban "enshrined the basic concept of equality and fairness" in the state’s constitution"It is fundamentally wrong to treat people differently based on the color of their skin" Schuette saidAffirmative action programs first advocated in the 1960s to combat discrimination against racial minorities have faced a backlash from conservatives in recent decades Court rulings and action by states have chipped away at the practiceThe other states with similar bans are Arizona California Florida Nebraska New Hampshire Oklahoma and WashingtonIn November 2012 a divided 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled Michigan’s ban unconstitutional prompting the state to appeal to the Supreme CourtThe ruling was decried by civil rights activists and some Democrats Michigan Democratic Representative John Conyers one of the senior black members of Congress said the ruling was one of a "troubling line" of recent high court decisions including one last year that struck down a key part of the Voting Rights Act a landmark law aimed at protecting minority voters"Our nation has come a long way in seeking to end discrimination but our work is far from complete at a time of continued under-representation of minorities in high education and many walks of life" Conyers addedOn Tuesday the justices in the majority were divided three ways Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote an opinion joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito saying the lower court that threw out the law lacked the authority to do so ‘Who may resolve it’"This case is not about how the debate about racial preferences should be resolved" Kennedy wrote "It is about who may resolve it"The dissenting votes came from two of the court’s liberal members Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader GinsburgSotomayor read parts of the dissent from the bench She wrote that the decision was a blow to "historically marginalized groups which rely on the federal courts to protect their constitutional rights"The court had undermined its own precedents which state that the majority cannot suppress minorities’ right to participate in the political process Sotomayor saidJustice Antonin Scalia wrote a separate opinion joined by Justice Clarence Thomas in which he said challenges to laws that rest on equal protection claims must show that the law reflects a discriminatory purpose This law did not he saidJustice Stephen Breyer was the only member of the liberal wing of the court to join the majority He wrote that Michigan’s ban was constitutional because the prohibition moved the decision on whether to adopt race-conscious admissions policies from university officials to the votersJustice Elena Kagan did not take part presumably because she worked on the case in her previous position as US solicitor generalSupporters of affirmative action condemned the rulingMark Rosenbaum the American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who argued before the Supreme Court said the ban "unfairly keeps students from asking universities to consider race as one factor in admissions but allows consideration of factors like legacy status athletic achievement and geography""This case is ultimately about whether students of color in Michigan are allowed to compete on the same playing field as all other students Today the Supreme Court said they are not" Rosenbaum saidThe Michigan case was argued in October 2013 just four months after the justices issued a legally narrow ruling on affirmative action in a different case involving the University of Texas at AustinIn a lopsided 7-1 vote that few had expected the court saiduniversity policies that took race into account could be more vulnerable to legal challenges in the future But the court did not strike the policy down and instead sent the case back to a lower court for reconsiderationThe Michigan case raised a different legal question focusing not on the state’s ban on affirmative action itself but rather the political process that led to its amendment being enactedMichigan has long been a legal battleground over the use of affirmative action in higher education The state’s amendment was passed as a direct result of a previous courtroom battle that reached the Supreme CourtThe case is Schuette v Coalition to
