Los Angeles finished its road trip at 3-1.Clippers coach Doc Rivers was impressed with Antetokounmpo’s play and joked that the Bucks star and Houston’s James Harden should share the MVP award so “everybody in the world is happy.”“The thing I like about Giannis the most is his temperament,” Rivers said. “He is not messing around. He is not there to put on a show. Every game is a competition for him. I love that. For me, of all the things he does, that is the No. 1 thing that stands out with me.”The Bucks led 67-46 at halftime as Antetokounmpo had 23 points on 7-of-12 shooting.

Rivers called Beverley “unstat-able” because his box score numbers do not always do justice to his impact on the court. Rivers pointed to a game in which Beverley did not score but was plus-22 during his time on the court. “You really can’t quantify what he does at times,” Rivers said. “He gives us our heart and our soul, for sure.” … Landry Shamet returned to the lineup after missing Tuesday’s game with a left ankle injury and had 13 points. … Former Bucks player Luc Mbah a Moute, who played in just four games with the Clippers this season, underwent surgery on his left knee Wednesday in New York.

Public Rec Apparel Has Your New Favorite Sweats

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a36.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2036/IMG3352.jpg" alt="first_img" /> Editors’ Recommendations Raleigh Denim Workshop Makes Jeans with Artistry and Ingenuity in the U.S.A. 3 of the Best Teeth Whitening Products For Pearly Whites What Is the Best Jean Style for You? Zach Goldstein’s search for the perfect sweatpant took long enough that he decided to craft a solution himself. Frustrated with the fit and look of traditional sweatpants, Goldstein was forever looking for a slimmer pair of tapered sweats. Eventually, that led to the formation of Public Rec Apparel, where Goldstein & his team worked for well over a year on a prototypes of a product that eventually raised nearly $180,000 on Kickstarter — the All Day Every Day Pant.Available in three colors (Heather Navy, Heather Charcoal and Black), the All Day Every Day Pant takes a style that’s traditionally been unflattering, and updates it for the guy on the go. In a mobile world, that’s noteworthy.“We set out to make a better-fitting pair of sweatpants by using waist and inseam sizing,” Goldstein said via email. The brand also uses a blend of nylon and spandex for comfort and a more formal look. All things considered, it’s a style move that’s drawn attention across the menswear community as “more comfortable alternative to jeans,” according to the brand.Hitting the sweet spot between comfort and style is a goal that can be quite tricky for most guys, but the brand aims to solve that conundrum — the All Day Every Day Pant can certainly work in an athletic setting, but it’s geared simply toward leisure activities.Related: OLIVERS Introducing New Movement KitWith the lines blurring between casual and formal, it’s a product that makes sense in today’s marketplace. And the brand isn’t stopping at sweatpants — they plan to introduce three more styles for the fall and winter season. For those who want new product sooner, they’ll also be releasing a T-shirt this summer.The tapered bottom keeps the silhouette clean, while the colors are muted enough that they should work with other like-minded style staples — like a slim pocket tee or even a blue Oxford and a grey crewneck sweater. For those wary of taking the leap into a style that’s not denim or chinos, Goldstein suggests reaching for a sharp bomber jacket.If Public Rec Apparel keeps getting positive feedback, plenty more might soon be wearing the All Day Every Day Pant — and other gear the company plans on churning out.Pick up your pair here.<img src="http://C60.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2060/IMG6252.jpg" alt="center_img" /> 1.

Diana Shippings Losses Widen in 2016

Time charter equivalent (TCE) rate stood at USD 6,106 last year, compared to a significantly higher TCE rate of USD 9,739 in 2015.The fourth quarter earnings were almost in line with the corresponding period in 2015, resulting in USD 800,000 bigger loss.Time charter revenues were USD 28 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to USD 38.3 million for the same quarter of 2015. During the fourth quarter of 2016, TCE rate was USD 6,319, against USD 9,169 in the same period of 2015.“The decrease in time charter revenues was due to decreased average time charter rates that we achieved for our vessels during the quarter and was partly offset by revenues derived from the increase in ownership days resulting from the enlargement of our fleet,” Diana said.As of February 14, 2017, Diana has a fleet of 48 dry bulk vessels comprising four Newcastlemaxes, fourteen Capesize vessels, three Post-Panamaxes, four Kamsarmaxes and 23 Panamaxes, with a combined carrying capacity of around 5.7 million dwt and a weighted average age of 7.71 years.<img src="http://c70.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2070/IMG12947.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8069"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

HRC To Honor Cynthia Nixon With Visibility Award At 2018 HRC Greater

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://C60.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2060/IMG4077.jpg" alt="first_img" />Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, announced that Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winner Cynthia Nixon will be honored with the organization’s Visibility Award at the 2018 HRC Greater New York Gala this Saturday, February 3, 2018.HRC also announced that Javier Muñoz, who currently stars in the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway sensation “Hamilton,” will be a special guest. MILCK, known for the hit anthem “Quiet” which went viral after the January 2017 Women’s March in Washington, will perform. As previously announced, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) will speak. Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winner Audra McDonald will be honored with the HRC National Equality Award, and Diageo will receive the HRC Corporate Equality Award.“Cynthia Nixon is a fearless and outspoken advocate for all LGBTQ people,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Cynthia uses her talent and public platform to speak out for equality in this country and around the globe, and in the process, she is changing countless hearts and minds. We are proud to recognize her with the HRC Visibility Award at the 2018 HRC Greater New York Gala.”From advocating for marriage equality to fighting stigma and prejudice, Cynthia Nixon has consistently spoken out for LGBTQ equality on a wide range of issues impacting the community for many years. Last February, in front of a crowd protesting Donald Trump’s immigration ban outside the historic Stonewall Inn in New York City, Nixon said, “As LGBT people, we know how important coming out is, but I would argue that our coming out has never been more important than it is right now.” After the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of marriage equality in 2015, Nixon penned an op-ed for Variety on the importance of not being complacent on LGBTQ equality, saying, “The important thing to remember going forward, though, is no outcome is ever 100% assured. We have to keep organizing like our lives depend on it.”Making her film and Broadway debuts at ages 12 and 14, Nixon has appeared in over 40 plays, 13 on Broadway, earning two Tony Awards for her performances in “The Little Foxes” and “Rabbit Hole.” In 1984, Nixon famously juggled two roles on Broadway in different plays in different theatres. Cynthia earned a Grammy for her recording of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH and Emmy and SAG awards for Miranda Hobbes in HBO’s SEX AND THE CITY. In 2017 she received rave reviews for her portrayal of Emily Dickinson in Terence Davies’ biopic A QUIET PASSION. She last starred in Marc Webb’s THE ONLY LIVING BOY IN NEW YORK opposite Pierce Brosnan, Jeff Bridges and Callum Turner. In December 2017 she filmed LOVE COMES LATER in which she plays a Polish émigré who owns a motel in upstate New York out of which she operates a small criminal empire. Nixon lives in New York City, with her wife, Christine Marinoni. They have three children: Sam, Charlie and Max.HRC supporter Javier Muñoz will be a special guest at the event. Muñoz was an active part of the early development and creation of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning smash “Hamilton.” Muñoz worked together with Lin-Manuel Miranda to develop the role of Alexander Hamilton, and Muñoz served as Miranda’s alternate at the Public Theater off-Broadway debut in 2015, as well as throughout the Broadway engagement. On July 11th, 2016, Muñoz assumed the title role of Alexander Hamilton full time on Broadway.LA-based singer/songwriter and artist fueled by social change, MILCK, recently released her debut EP “This Is Not The End.” The seven-song collection features her single “Quiet,” which in 2017 became widely known as the unofficial anthem of the Women’s March movement, after MILCK teamed up with two dozen female singers to perform acapella flash mobs of the song on the streets in Washington, D.C. A video of the last flash mob was captured by award-winning director Alma Har’el and quickly went viral, drawing over 14 million plays in just two days. MILCK released a new studio recording of “Quiet” in November, as her “musical #METOO,” in light of the massive movement of women and survivors speaking out against sexual assault. Last Friday, MILCK performed “Quiet” on The Today Show and went on to headline this year’s Women’s March on New York City on January 20, with Yoko Ono sharing the stage. “Quiet” has proved MILCK’s worldwide breakthrough as a cathartic pop anthem for people of all races, creeds, and colors who have suffered and survived in the face of trauma, trial, and tribulation.Held this year at the New York Marriott Marquis, the Greater New York Gala is one of HRC’s largest events of the year, attracting more than 1,000 of the organization’s most active leaders, supporters, and members. The event regularly draws political officials from federal, state, and local governments, as well as celebrity entertainers and leaders in the business community.<img src="http://a36.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2036/IMG1025.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8021"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

VANCOUVERS MATTHEW YU SET TO FACE OFF FOR SMARTEST KID TITLE

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a23.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG15299.jpg" alt="first_img" />We caught up with Yu, a student at Collingwood in Vancouver, and found out he is not only very intelligent.Q: How did you end up on the show?A: My debate coach Frankie Cena (former competitor on Canada’s Smartest Person) encouraged me to apply. At first I was very nervous and thought that I wasn’t smart enough to apply. But since I love challenges, I decided I would give it a try. Miraculously, I secured a spot in the season finale on Wednesday, Dec. 19.Q: What is your strongest subject?A: I have very strong categories. They are musical, physical, and logical. I am strong in music because my ear is excellent at identifying notes and I am also currently level 9 Piano and I am able to compose songs. I am strong in physical because I do sports competitively every single day, such as figure skating, swimming, karate, track and field, and skiing. I am strong in logical because I just love playing around with numbers.Q: What was the hardest part of the competition?A: The hardest part of the competition was not really anything about myself. It was seeing my friends getting eliminated. I just feel very sad for them and I wish they were still on the show. Luckily, in the next episode on Dec. 12, those who were eliminated get a shot at redemption and will have a second chance to make it to the finale!Q: What was the easiest and why?A: The easiest part of this competition was to run up those glittery sparkly staircases when I won a challenge because when I go up, I just feel relief coming slowly down my body. Plus, it’s really not so hard to run up a 5-stair staircase!Q: What did you do to prepare for the show?A: I actually didn’t prepare at all. We use these six categories of intelligence in our everyday life, whether you do it subconsciously or you actually realize you’re using them.Q: How hard has it been not to tell anyone what happens in the final episode?A: I like to keep surprises. I think that not telling anyone what happened in the final episode is very easy. All I need to do is to say “just tune-in and you’ll find out!”Q: What have your friends been saying to you about the show?A: Some of my friends say that the show is very cool and I did a very good job and some of my other friends say the show is very easy and they should be on it. In reality, when I am actually on stage, it is way harder than it looks.Vancouver’s Matthew Yu is one of the finalists in the new TV show Canada’s Smartest Person Junior. The final will be broadcast on CBC on Dec. 19, 2018. (Photo: Courtesy of CBC Courtesy of CBC / PNG)Q: This was the first ever Canada’s Smartest Person Junior. Now that you have done it what advice would you offer to other kids who might want to do future shows?A: I would just say to not be afraid of applying. Although you might be a little nervous, always challenge yourself. No matter if you do good or bad, it’s a learning experience and a way to have fun.Q: What is the question you get asked most when people find out you were on a TV show?A: The question I get asked the most is “DID YOU WIN?” Now everyone I see asks me that question. I simply just reply, “watch and see to find out.”Q: Who is the smartest person you know and why?A: The smartest people I know are my parents. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to do anything I do today. Although their logical intelligence is not smarter than Albert Einstein, smart still comes in many ways, and my parents have a lot of social intelligence.Q: What do you do for fun?A: I usually like to play with my Rubik’s cubes and play with puzzles. I really like puzzles because not only are they fun but they also train your brain to do awesome things.Q: You are only 10 but have you thought about what you want to be when you grow up?A: I want to be an astronaut when I grow up.

Only 58 of Moroccans Are Able to Save Money HCP

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>Rabat – According to recent research, it is almost impossible for Moroccans to save any money. A study on household confidence conducted by the Moroccan Planning Authority (HCP) has shown that only 5.8 per cent of Moroccan households can save part of their income.The study has found that Moroccan households remain pessimistic about their ability to save money in the coming months. In the first three months of 2015, the study says, 84.9 per cent of households feel they cannot save in the next 12 months, compared to 15.1 per cent who said they can.Nearly 56 percent of households think that their income covers their expenses, while 38.2 per cent of them say they take loans or tap into their savings.During the first three months of 2015, 74.3 per cent of households expect an increase in the number of the unemployed in the next 12 months, against 9.1 per cent who think otherwise. With a negative level of -65.2 points, the balance of this indicator recorded an improvement of 2.8 points from the previous trimester and 3.9 points compared to the same period of last year.58.3 per cent of Moroccan households consider it is not appropriate to make purchases of durable goods, while 21.3 per cent disagreed. The balance of this indicator stood at -37 points or 1.1 point increase from the previous trimester.87.8 per cent of households estimate that food prices have increased during the last 12 months, 11.6 per cent think they stagnated and 0.6 per cent believe they declined.With a level of -87.2 points, the balance of this indicator deteriorated by 2.7 points from the previous trimester and Improved by 2.2 points compared to the same period of 2014.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7986"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Enhanced dialogue among all parties vital for Myanmars political future – Ban

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>20 October 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called on Myanmar’s Government and opposition to increase dialogue as the Asian country proceeds on the path toward national reconciliation and democratization, once again stressing the need for a credible and inclusive political process. “The political challenges of any transition to democracy require negotiated political solutions,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon writes in his latest report to the General Assembly on the situation of human rights in Myanmar.“As the country reaches a delicate juncture in its political development, there is no real alternative to a peaceful process of national reconciliation and now is the time for the Government and opposition alike to find ways to talk to each other and work together in the interest of the nation,” he says. The report highlights development in Myanmar between 23 October 2007 and 5 September 2008, as well as the activities of the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser, Ibrahim Gambari, who visited the country three times during that period.Mr. Gambari had stated that the tangible results of his most recent visit in August “fell below our expectations,” but added that the UN “will not give up on working for national reconciliation, democracy and respect for human rights in Myanmar.”The Secretary-General echoed Mr. Gambari’s views when he told reporters last month that Myanmar has not experienced the anticipated political progress and its Government should take real measures towards setting up a more inclusive political process that promotes human rights.He expresses similar sentiments in his report when he writes that it remains “a source of frustration that meaningful steps have yet to be taken by the Myanmar Government in response to the concerns and expectations of the United Nations and the international community in the context of the good offices process.”Myanmar’s authorities are in the process of preparing for general elections scheduled for 2010 – the next step in the seven-step road map for democracy outlined by the Government. Mr. Ban underlines that the future of Myanmar ultimately rests with the Government and its people, and reiterates that the role of the UN is to ascertain the positions of all parties and facilitate their efforts to work together through dialogue towards a mutually acceptable process of national reconciliation and democratization.Noting that there is no alternative to dialogue to ensure that all stakeholders can contribute to the future of their country, he stresses that the release of detained opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners will be key for the resumption of an enhanced, all-inclusive substantive and time-bound dialogue.The release of all political prisoners, including Ms. Suu Kyi, as well as the need for an enhanced, substantive and time-bound dialogue between her and the Government, are among the key areas of concern for Mr. Gambari as he carries out the good offices role entrusted to him by the Assembly. “The Secretary-General and his Special Adviser have therefore consistently emphasized that only a credible and inclusive political process — based on mutual understanding and compromise by all stakeholders — can help to advance the prospects of durable peace, national reconciliation, democracy and respect for human rights in Myanmar. “In this regard, it is unfortunate that specific suggestions of the United Nations to improve the credibility and inclusiveness of the political process have thus far not been taken up by the Government,” states the report.Mr. Ban adds that despite the Government’s efforts in implementing its road map process and addressing the challenges facing the country, the political situation in Myanmar has become “even more complex and challenging and potentially more polarized, drawing increased attention from the international community, including the Security Council.” The UN also remains concerned about ongoing reports of armed conflict and associated human rights abuses and humanitarian problems in ethnic minority areas, particularly in Kayin and Kayah states. “Substantive talks leading to the sustainable cessation of hostilities between the Government and those armed ethnic groups still actively fighting need to be concluded, with a spirit of compromise on both sides,” he writes.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7969"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Chinese minister Brazilian wildlife champion win UN environmental prize

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>The $200,000 Sasakawa Environmental Prize will be shared by Xie Zhenhua, Executive Vice-Chair of the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment (CCIED) and Minister of State for the Environmental Protection Administration of China (SEPA), and Dener Jose Giovanini of Brazil, founder of the National Network for Combating Wild Animal Trafficking (RENCTAS). UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan will present the awards 19 November, at the New York Historical Society. A UNEP press statement said Mr. Xie “has worked tirelessly to steer the world’s most populous country and fastest growing economy on an environmentally friendly path.” Mr. Giovanini, UNEP said, founded a group “whose innovative approach to curbing illegal wildlife trafficking has become a model not only in Latin America but also for the rest of the developing world.” UNEP Executive Director Klaus Toepfer said: “Both individuals have demonstrated, one at the governmental and the other at the grassroots level, how the complex and apparently insoluble problems facing the world can be tackled. Both have shown vision, patience, pragmatism and an understanding of the need to engage and encourage numerous actors and partners if sustainable development is to be realized.” “It had, until recently, been an almost unchallenged belief that China’s dramatic economic growth threatens the environment and health of the region as well as the world. By working through national, regional and local governments, Mr. Xie has shown that this does not have to be the case. He has demonstrated that economic growth can occur without sacrificing the water, air and land upon which we all depend”, he said. “Mr. Giovanini’s achievements towards curbing illegal wildlife trafficking highlight how creative solutions to one of the world’s biggest illegal trades can only succeed if the root cause – namely poverty – is also tackled. His success is even more outstanding when one considers the constant death threats and intimidation aimed at him by those eager to see him fail,” Mr. Toepfer said. Ryoichi Sasakawa, founder of the Nippon Foundation, contributed to social and public initiatives both within and outside Japan, including the establishment of the UNEP Sasakawa Environment Prize in 1982. He died in 1995.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7932"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Security Council President vows no impunity for war crimes in Darfur Sudan

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>As Council members study the report of a UN-appointed commission of inquiry into whether genocide has occurred in Darfur, Ambassador Joel W. Adechi of Benin, which holds the rotating presidency for this month, told reporters at a briefing that the 15-member body wants to deal with the situation in an “internationally recognized way.”The commission of inquiry found that while the Sudanese Government had not conducted a policy of genocide, both its forces and allied Janjaweed militias had carried out “indiscriminate attacks, including killing of civilians, torture, enforced disappearances, destruction of villages, rape and other forms of sexual violence, pillaging and forced displacement.”The panel also concluded that rebel forces in Darfur were responsible for possible war crimes, including murder of civilians and pillage, and recommended that the Council refer its dossier on the crimes to the International Criminal Court (ICC). Tens of thousands of people have been killed and up to 1.85 million others are internally displaced or have fled to neighbouring Chad since the conflict flared in early 2003.Speaking to reporters today at UN Headquarters, Secretary-General Kofi Annan reiterated his support for the ICC option and for quick and decisive action by the Council. He also stressed that sanctions against the Khartoum Government must remain on the table.”I was able to sit down with President Bashir and his Foreign Minister…to tell them exactly what we think should be done and the fact that the situation in Darfur was not getting any better and it was essential that they took every step to bring the situation under control,” Mr. Annan said of his meeting with the Sudanese leaders at the African Union summit last weekend in Nigeria.The Council will hold at least two meetings and possibly a third on Sudan this month, focusing on both the situation in Darfur – where violent clashes have been reported this week – and the proposal for the establishment of a UN peace-support mission in southern Sudan following the signing of a peace deal there last month.Jan Pronk, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, will brief the Council this Friday and again at a separate meeting next Tuesday on the proposal for the peace-support mission. Sudanese Vice-President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha and John Garang, leader of the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), may brief the second meeting, along with representatives of the African Union.Mr. Adechi said Council members could hold a third meeting on Sudan, this time focusing on the contents of the genocide inquiry report, as early as late next week.Meanwhile, the UN Advance Mission in Sudan (UNAMIS) said reports indicate that on Monday violent clashes broke out between local tribes north of the town of Malha in North Darfur state. The dispute is believed to have been over long-standing tensions about the water shortage in the area, which has been ravaged by drought.In South Darfur state, security and military officials from the capital Nyala have travelled to the town of Gereida to assess the situation following reports that militiamen attacked a group of internally displaced persons (IDPs) near there last week, killing six people and displacing more than 4,000 others from their homes.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7926"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

New Oireachtas inquiries regime can be used to hold government to account

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://b52.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2052/IMG14694.jpg" alt="first_img" />LEGISLATION ALLOWING TDs and senators to undertake public inquiries has been published today.The Houses of the Oireachtas (Inquiries, Privileges and Procedures) Bill 2013 (PDF) outlines procedures by which members of the Dáil and Seanad can “hold the Government to account”, as well as those who consent to the scrutiny of the Oireachtas when taking up public office.The legislation outlines five different types of inquiries which can be undertaken by politicians – including an ‘inquire-report-record’ inquiry, the format likely to be used for an inquiry into the circumstances of the State bank guarantee and the financial crisis.Inquiries under the new laws also, for the first time, outline a legal mechanism by which the President, a Supreme or High Court judge, or the Comptroller and Auditor General can be impeach from office.In an effort to avoid a repeat of the Ivor Callely scandal, where court action was taken to contest the findings of an Oireachtas committee, the legislation also provides a new system to inquire into the conduct of a member of either the Dáil or Seanad.Publishing the legislation this afternoon, Brendan Howlin said that holding a parliamentary inquiry was not a method of identifying a person to blame, other than in circumstances where a committee was set up specifically inquire into a politician’s conduct.The courts system will be able to give directions for an inquiry if requested.“This legislation is essential to conducting a parliamentary banking inquiry,” Howlin said.“Parliamentary inquiries under this legislation can be cost-effective, efficient and resilient to any legal challenge providing they have focused terms of reference and comply strictly with fair procedures.”Read: Seanad could be given role to hold public inquiries… if it survivesOctober 2011: Howlin hints that if Committee amendment doesn’t pass… it won’t be end of it<img src="http://a36.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2030/IMG4874.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7851"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Seven unions have now rejected Croke Park II proposals

Report Chelsea place €110m price tag on Eden Hazard

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a37.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2037/IMG12851.jpg" alt="first_img" />Now that placing a price-tag on coveted players has become a tendency, Chelsea decided to do it with Eden Hazard: €110 million if he wants to leave.The winter transfer market is getting more heated up for clubs like Real Madrid, as Los Blancos are still deciding whether they want players like Eden Hazard or Harry Kane.It was just last weekend when Tottenham Hotspur put the price-tag of €350 million for striker Harry Kane after a meeting with Real Madrid officials took place in London before Christmas, this time Chelsea decided to send a message via a report from The Telegraph.The English news outlet issued a report that confirms the Belgian winger could go out of Chelsea soon if any club decided to come after him, but we all know that Real Madrid is the most interested squad to buy the player.Despite the constant speculation about Chelsea requesting an insane amount of money for the player, they are showing good will towards him because of all the titles he has helped the club win during his time with them.Hazard previously mentioned that he wouldn’t leave if Chelsea didn’t come out on top of the negotiation for him, which was also received well amongst the club’s board of directors.Describe este golazo de Hazard 💙 con un emoji 😱 pic.twitter.com/lQSDLq6Vg5— Soy Fan Chelsea (@soyfanchelsea) January 10, 2019President Florentino Perez was adamant in signing Hazard last summer when he led Belgium to the World Cup semifinals, but the initial price that Chelsea requested was above €200 million and Perez refused to pay such a massive sum of cash for the player regardless of how talented he was at the moment.The English club had the hope of winning more trophies under new manager Maurizio Sarri, he promised them to compete for all the titles they would play this season with Eden Hazard as their top player.The new project really excited Eden, which is why he stated a few times that he wouldn’t leave the club any time soon.But things have changed for the Blues within the span of only a few months, they have practically stepped down from the title race as they are currently 10 points behind leaders Liverpool and Hazard has quickly understood that winning more important trophies may not be so easy in England anymore.<img width="218" height="150" class="entry-thumb" src="https://ronaldo.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/GettyImages-107959503-218x150.jpg" srcset="https://ronaldo.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/GettyImages-107959503-218x150.jpg 218w, https://ronaldo.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/GettyImages-107959503-100x70.jpg 100w" sizes="(max-width: 218px) 100vw, 218px" alt="Jose Mourinho, Lionel Messi" title="Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach”" />Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.The top target for Hazard is to win the Champions League sometime before his career comes to an end, he just realized that Chelsea might not be the place where he can achieve that goal and time is running out.¡HAZARD YA TIENE PRECIO! Según el ‘TELEGRAPH’, el Chelsea PEDIRÁ al menos 112 MILLONES por el belga. Lo cuenta @plazacasals en #ChiringuitoFichajes pic.twitter.com/4jntmjYNUK— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) January 15, 2019Now that Chelsea has put this price-tag on their top player, this is a direct message to Florentino that invites him to make an offer for next summer.The Belgian winger finishes his contract with Chelsea in 2020, this means that next summer will be the last chance for the Blues to ask for a fair price for Hazard and Real Madrid might be the only other club that the player would agree to go to.To those who are not aware, if a player doesn’t renew his contract in time with his club and such contract expires, any squad in the world can take said player free of charge because he would be considered a free agent.Chelsea doesn’t want this scenario to happen, which is why they have decided to make things easier for Real Madrid and let Florentino Perez finally accept that he does need a player as talented as Eden Hazard on his squad.As it is commonly said in Basketball terms, “the ball is on Real Madrid’s court”. It is Los Blancos turn to make a move, they have a big chance to bring one of the best players in the world to their ranks for a fair price.Eden Hazard primer jugador que está temporada logra 10 asistencias en la #EPL pic.twitter.com/aL7FXIE6H0— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFCMI) January 12, 2019What do you think Real Madrid should do now that Chelsea has put this price-tag on Eden Hazard?

Mans family sues over jail death

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a17.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2017/IMG12720.jpg" alt="first_img" />The family of Marius C. Asanachescu, a mentally ill man who died while in custody at the Clark County Jail last year, has filed a lawsuit in federal court against the county and the jail’s medical provider.The lawsuit alleges Asanachescu’s civil rights were violated and seeks an unspecified amount of money in compensation for his death as well as punitive damages.Asanachescu died in February 2012 at age 28.Clark County Medical Examiner Dr. Dennis Wickham ruled the death was a homicide from asphyxia while Asanachescu was being restrained by custody officers. The fatality was investigated by detectives from the Vancouver Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. In January, Clark County Chief Deputy Prosecutor John Fairgrieve said no charges would be filed against the officers. He called the incident “an unfortunate, tragic accident,” but said the custody officers “acted appropriately and used a reasonable amount of force given the situation they faced.”At the time of his death, Asanachescu, who had bipolar disorder, had prior criminal convictions and received Social Security disability payments, was in jail on charges of assaulting his brother. He had been awaiting transfer to Western State Hospital for a mental competency evaluation.In a 45-page complaint filed recently in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, Vancouver attorney William Nelson and Portland attorney David Meyer allege the defendants were “deliberately indifferent” to Asanachescu’s needs.<img src="http://a17.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2017/IMG10695.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7761"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

UPDATE Feds tell animal services to leave starving Puget Sound seal pup

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a42.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2042/IMG2262.jpg" alt="first_img" />OLYMPIA — It might be agonizing to watch a harbor seal pup that appears to be starving, but “rescuing” it would be unnatural and could do more harm than good, a spokesman for the National Marine Fisheries Service said.Touching the pup also would be illegal, spokesman Brian Gorman said Friday.A woman with a waterfront home on south Puget Sound about 5 miles north of Olympia has been agonizing since the weekend over a nearby pup that has been crying, alone and apparently neglected.From her home, Brandy Garcia can see a couple of dozen pups who haul out on a former railroad trestle on Henderson Inlet. She sees other mothers feed their pups but not this one.Animal agencies and rescue groups have all told her to let nature take its course, but she says it seems inhumane.Susanne Beauregard, director of Thurston County Animal Services, told The Olympian on Thursday her agency could help. But Garcia said she had a call from animal services Friday morning saying federal authorities had told it to “stand down” and there was nothing it could do.The seal pup remained on the trestle, and Garcia was looking to see if it was still alive. Its cries kept her awake last weekend, and she has called everyone she can think of for help.<img src="http://a42.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2042/IMG6338.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7760"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

KSM mine targets richer ore while seeking investors

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://s24.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2024/IMG16306.jpg" alt="first_img" />A Canadian mining company says it’s found richer deposits of gold and copper ore at its controversial KSM project. It’s spending $16 million to continue to explore for more at its site, upriver from Ketchikan, this summer.Download AudioThe company, Seabridge Gold, is holding its annual meeting in Toronto this week. Tribal representatives from Alaska and British Columbia plan a protest.Seabridge says it’s continuing to define the boundaries of a group of ore bodies at its Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell copper, gold and silver deposit.The northwest British Columbia mine is upstream of two rivers that enter the ocean within about 50 miles of Ketchikan.KSM spokesman Brent Murphy says this summer’s drilling will focus on what’s called the Mitchell deposit. The company is drilling past lower-grade copper ore to richer, deeper deposits.“What we’re finding at KSM is where there’s copper, there’s gold. So, we’re also exploring for gold at the same time,” he says.The KSM Prospect is inland from Southeast Alaska. (Courtesy SEACC)Drilling will also further explore two other promising deposits.Seabridge Gold says the depth of the richer deposits may allow for underground, rather than open pit, mining in some areas. It says that could save money, as well as reduce water use and surface disturbance.Murphy says 40 to 45 people are working at the remote site right now, with about 20 more coming later. They’ll operate up to three drill rigs.“It’s a little bit less than last year and the previous year. Two years ago we had I think five drill rigs turning. Last year we had four,” he says.Exploration is only part of the picture. Seabridge Gold expects mine construction to cost more than $5 billion, Canadian, and continues to seek investment partners.The company’s 2014 annual report shows that as one of its top goals for the year, as it is for this year. It says Seabridge has doubled the number of confidentiality agreements with prospective partners, though it didn’t give a number.“What was certainly very promising and favorable to us was the granting and awarding of the federal environmental assessment approval in late December 2014. A few companies took notice of that,” he says.Seabridge Gold won similar provincial approval last summer.On the downside, the company acknowledges low metals prices continue to impact investments.Also affecting the mine’s prospects is last year’s Mount Polley Mine disaster in east-central British Columbia. A tailings dam breach and subsequent flood led to recommendations for significant changes in mine-construction practices.Bonnie Gestring of Earthworks, a national conservation organization, authored a recentcritical risk analysis of the KSM.“They’re proposing to use the same discredited tailings dam technology as that used by Mount Polley,” she says. “They’re proposing to submerge tailings underwater after the mine closes, which is in direct conflict with what the expert panel recommended to reduce the potential for catastrophic failure.She says a dry-tailings storage system would be much safer. That’s what’s used at Southeast Alaska’s Greens Creek Mine.Murphy says the comparison is unfair. He says KSM’s tailings dam will be better built and far-less risky.A rusty pipe marks the first drilling site at the KSM Prospect.

We are also insuring that we will not have water built up within the impoundment. So water will be kept hundreds of meters away from the crest of the dam, unlike what we saw at Mount Polley,” he says.The tailings dam is planned for a valley in the watershed of the Nass River, which enters the ocean south of the Alaska border. A mine-site water treatment plant will be within the watershed of the Unuk River, which drains into saltwater northeast of Ketchikan.Seabridge Gold this spring announced it had raised about $16 million, Canadian, to fund this summer’s drilling program.<img src="http://s24.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2024/IMG5228.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7713"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->
