Artistic gymnastics World Cup: Dipa eyes Olympic berth with good show

first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 21 (PTI) Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar would be aiming to put behind the injury-marred disaster that was the Asian Games when she aims for a positive start to her Olympic qualification bid with the World Cup of artistic gymnastics in Cottbus, Germany from Thursday. The four-day showpiece is part of an eight-event qualifying system under which the gymnasts will make the cut based on the aggregate of their top three scores. The four-member Indian team, which also comprises B Aruna Reddy, Ashish Kumar and Rakesh Patra, will look to make it count with good performances. Dipa, who finished fourth at the Rio Olympics, will be India’s best bet in the tournament after clinching the gold at the Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup at Mersin, Turkey in July this year. The 25-year-old from Arunachal Pradesh endured a poor comeback from injury in the Jakarta Asian Games where she had to pull out midway after her knee problem flared up again. Aruna, on the other hand, won a bronze medal in one of the earlier world cups this year in the women’s vault event in Melbourne and she too will fancy her chances. Among the men, Ashish has been India’s brightest with a bronze in floor exercise at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China. He also won a bronze and silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in floor exercise and vault respectively. Rakesh also had some decent performances this year, a fourth-place finish in the ring apparatus finals at the Commonwealth Games being the highlight. He also narrowly missed a medal at the Melbourne World Cup in February, finishing fourth.advertisement The run-up to the event, however, has been chaotic with the showdown between the Sports Authority of India (SAI) and the de-recognised Gymnastics Federation of India (GFI) affecting the athletes. The bitter war between the two bodies led to the Indian gymnasts missing the world Championship in Doha last month. In fact, ahead of the Cottbus event, the Sports Authority of India refused to bear the cost of Yogeshwar Singh and Pranati Das, while clearing the other four gymnasts to participate in the tournament. This prompted Pranati and Yogeshwar to express their grievances to SAI in a letter early this month. PTI ATK PM PMlast_img read more

Q&A: Get To Know Texas Tech and Coach Bro

first_imgSeth Jungman of Staking the Plains was kind enough to answer our questions this week. You can see my answers to his questions at his excellent Texas Tech website. Hope you guys enjoy!1. Coach Kliff Kingsbury has a lot of similarities to OSU Head Coach Mike Gundy (offensive background, coaching at his alma mater, former quarterback). What are thoughts so far in year four of the Kingsbury era?These last few games, except for the TCU game, have been rough for me personally. It seems as if there’s some regression in some key areas and the defense really doesn’t show improvement at all. Mahomes is falling into some old bad habits and that’s caused the offense to have significant lapses.The problem is that we all want Kingsbury to succeed because, as you mention, he’s one of us and we really want nothing more than for him to succeed. For me, I need to see some improvement, tangible and consistent improvement and I don’t think Texas Tech is going to win this game, but it would be nice to see some consistency.2. Coach Kingsbury talked about how he challenged the team after the loss to West Virginia and the team looks to have answered the call with a great win at TCU and close losses to OU and Texas. What have been the biggest improvements in the upturn in the 2nd half of the season?It’s funny that you look at it that way as lots of fans, me included, that there hasn’t been a huge improvement the second half of the season other than the win on the road against TCU, that there’s been a lot of bad that’s gone along with the two closes losses to OU and UT.The epically bad defense against OU and poor results for the defense again against UT (over 600 yards of offense and 400 yards rushing) plus an offense that becomes stagnant has led to an some frustrating results for each of those games.If I had to guess as to the positive aspects, the team apparently amped up practice after that game, actually hitting rather than more walk-through stuff.3. There seems to be a youth movement on the defensive side of the ball with Jordyn Brooks leading the team in tackles and Douglas Coleman’s incredible play last week against Texas. What would you say are the strengths of the unit and how the Cowboys would be best off attacking the defense?Oh, jeez. Well, there really isn’t a spot that the Cowboys can’t attack. There’s really not strong point to the defense. Teams have run at will for most games and the same thing with the passing game.There are bright spots, young bright spots, as you mentioned Brooks has played well as well as can be expected and Coleman has played well for two weeks in a row, the fumble return last week and he had an interception in TCU’s end zone the week before. Malik Jefferson has played well as of late and against TCU, Ondre Pipkins played well at nose tackle.4. Coach Gundy compared Patrick Mahomes to Dallas Cowboy quarterback Dak Prescott — can you tell us more about Mahomes and what he brings to the table, and maybe what famous quarterback(s) he most compares with?I think Prescott is as good a comparison as any. Mahomes isn’t really a runner, he’s mobile and a bit elusive, but he’s not fast like a lot of other quarterbacks.Mahomes has a big arm and the problem recently is that he’s had trouble finding open receivers when teams drop seven or eight in coverage. It’s been a significant problem and it’s stalled the offense to the point where they won’t score for five straight possessions.That’s not normal for this offense and Kingsbury and Mahomes have to figure it out because I can almost guarantee that Oklahoma State will attempt the same thing as Texas and TCU.5. What matchup(s) interests you most heading into Saturday’s game?I’m interested as all get-out in how OSU plays the game defensively against Texas Tech. Traditionally, OSU is a 4-3 defense, but if what’s given Texas Tech fits is a 3-3-5 and what worked particularly well for Texas in the second half was Malik Jefferson shadowing Mahomes for the entire second half.It’s time for Kingsbury and Mahomes to figure this out and I hope it’s against the Cowboys, but I’m not betting on it.6. Four years in, Coach Kingsbury is still nearly the youngest Power 5 coach (I believe just barely second to new conference peer Matt Campbell), does he seem to operate differently than more experienced coaches and do you have any interesting stories about you can share?Maybe the most interesting thing is that the “coach bro” narrative is played out. Yes, he’s good looking and all of that, but he’s also a hard worker. His dad is a Marine, his mom passed away when he was in college.He gets to the office at 4 a.m. and he doesn’t leave until late. His hobby is binging on Peaky Blinders and Narcos when he has the time in the offseason. The persona isn’t really what he actually is, which is a hard-working individual.7. Texas Tech is 2nd in the nation at converting third downs (55.1 percent), to what do you attribute such great success?It’s really be at the arm of Mahomes more than anything. There are times where he completes a pass on third down that most quarterbacks just can’t do. That percentage has fallen off as of late and the big reason for that has been opposing defenses.Plus, Texas Tech has some terrific receivers, who have been his go-to for a lot of those opportunities. Jonathan Giles is terrific, Cameron Batson, Ian Sadler, Keke Coutee, Dylan Cantrell and Derrick Willies have been incredibly solid pass catchers.8.  While things seem to have died down on the expansion front, what do you gather to be the general sentiment from Texas Tech fans on whether or not to expand and who they would like to add? Most fans know what’s coming, which is the likely implosion of the Big 12 and I think most fans just want a seat at the table for a Power Five conference. It’s what makes winning so important between now and 2024 when the wheels might start turning in that direction.It’s why this year and the prospect of Kingsbury moving forward has to start putting together some wins.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

New Music Monday: Rhiannon Giddens

first_img Fall in Love with Tentree’s New Fall Collection, Then Plant a Tree Celebrate America with the Return of the Old Camp Whiskey Patriot Pack Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editions You Should Read Patagonia Founder Yvon Chouinard’s Guide to Life Will This Nootropic from HVMN Get You Into Ketosis Faster? Editors’ Recommendations Rhiannon Giddens released Tomorrow Is My Turn, one of the best albums of 2015, early in the year. Earlier this month the singer for Carolina Chocolate Drops released a follow-up EP, Factory Girl, containing tracks that were recorded during the Tomorrow sessions, but which did not make it onto the album. With that in mind, New Music Monday is taking a slight detour this week and focusing on both of Rhiannon Giddens’ releases from 2015.Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, Tomorrow Is My Turn and Factory Girl both consist mainly of Giddens’ reinterpretations of artists who heavily influenced her, ranging from Dolly Parton (“Don’t Let It Trouble Your Mind”) to Nina Simone (the title track). Cover songs, and albums in particular, pose a tricky problem for artists; stray too far from the original and the essence of the song is lost, change too little and the question of why record the cover at all arises. Giddens walks that tightrope spectacularly. Her rendition of “She’s Got You,” for example, keeps the song’s tempo slow and smoothly incorporates an upright bass.The story behind the recording of Tomorrow and Factory Girl is that Rhiannon Giddens came onstage near the end of a T Bone Burnett-curated tribute to early ’60s folk music and stole the show with her powerful take on Odetta’s “Waterboy.” At intermission, Burnett immediately went backstage and offered to produce her solo debut. From there it was not long before the sessions for Tomorrow Is My Turn came together.As a founding member of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Giddens is no stranger to performing and arranging songs written by others because the band play a combination of original and traditional material. She had, however, been amassing songs she wanted to interpret from artists she wanted to acknowledge, many of which did not fit CCD’s sound. The sessions with Burnett proved an ideal ground for these ideas. Giddens sent the list to Burnett who was on board immediately. Giddens says of working with Burnett, “[h]e sets the table with a fine linen tablecloth, beautiful dishes, silver urns, everything is top notch, but you have to bring the food.”Bring the food she did. Tomorrow Is My Turn is one of the strongest albums of 2015, and Giddens’ follow-up EP, Factory Girl, is a testament to how many great songs she recorded for the album. It is a shame that the tracks from Factory Girl did not make it onto Tomorrow, but the EP release is much more than just leftover songs.Rhiannon Giddens’ album and EP are both out now on Nonesuch Records and available through Amazon (Factory Girl), iTunes (Factory Girl), and Nonesuch.last_img read more

Trace Cyrus Stars In AntiFur Ad For PETA

first_imgStripped to the waist — except, of course, for the hundreds of tattoos that cover him from neck to navel — multifaceted musician Trace Cyrus, also known as electro-pop act Ashland High, stars in a brand-new “Ink, Not Mink” ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division, that reads, “Look Good in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs.”Trace Cyrus – Ink Not MinkFor Trace, kindness to animals is as much a family trait as musicianship. “I grew up on a farm, pretty much, in Nashville,” he explains in an exclusive peta2 interview, going on to elaborate that if his father, Billy Ray Cyrus, found an injured deer, he would help rehabilitate the animal and that his family has always lived with dogs. Cyrus says of one of his dogs, “Nash … he went on tour with me and everything. He did the whole four-month Miley Cyrus tour when I went on tour with her. … I look at them like my kids.” And as for fur? “I’ve just never been interested in wearing fur … and I’m not about to start now.”Each year, millions of foxes, minks, coyotes, rabbits, and even dogs and cats are bludgeoned to death, electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, or skinned alive—all in the name of fashion. For every cuff, collar, piece of trim, or coat made from real fur, an animal endured a miserable life and an agonizing death.Cyrus joins a long list of musicians and other celebrities—including Chester Bennington, Dave Navarro, Waka Flocka Flame, and Steve-O, among others—who have participated in peta2’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign.Source:PETAlast_img read more

We are nations says AFN candidate Gabriel

first_imgAPTN National NewsTORONTO–Perhaps best known for her role as spokesperson during the 1990 Oka Crisis, Ellen Gabriel said Canada must change the way it deals with First Nations.“The tiny little box that we’ve been put in by the Indian Act is not working. We have a broken relationship with Canada and we need to decolonize that relationship,” she said.But Gabriel said change has to happen in First Nation communities too.“Because of the residential schools, because of the Indian Act, we need to restore the places of women in our communities. We talk about the violence in our communities, we need men to stand up. Not behind us, but beside us as our brothers. Stop the violence in our communities,” she said.Gabriel is one of eight candidates vying for the position of national chief of the AFN. She was speaking during the candidate’s forum during the AFN gathering in Toronto where chiefs will vote for national chief on Wednesday.Gabriel said the AFN needs to remember who it represents.“We should not be going to Canada who we have disputes with. If we have a dispute with one another it should not be up to Canada and their courts who have a limited scope in their interpretation of what our rights are. We should be going to the international level, because our treaties and our agreements are international agreements. We are nations,” she said.Gabriel touched on topics like protecting Indigenous languages, the importance of First Nation controlled child and family service organizations, and calls for a national inquiry into the hundreds of missing and murdered Indigenous women.“In 2006, the Union of Chiefs of Police vowed that they would create a protocol on how to deal with the missing and murdered Aboriginal women. Here it is 2012 and they’ve done nothing. They have done nothing because it is in their best interests to keep women oppressed,” she said.Gabriel also said the AFN must support the community of Barriere Lake in Quebec which has been battling to govern traditionally and First Nations fighting tar-sands development in Alberta.But she stressed that she’s not against First Nations benefiting from their own lands.“But I’m against development that hurts and exploits our lands so that we can longer drink our water. That poisons the water, the moose and the fishes that we eat. It has to be sustainable development,” she said.last_img read more

Condill Hotel starting to come down

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The demolition contractor hired by the City of Fort St. John has completed the abatement of contaminated materials inside the Condill Hotel, and today started to knock the historic building down. The City’s Communications Coordinator Ryan Harvey said that the demolition phase is expected to take approximately one month during which time the sidewalk and the parking lane in front of the building will be closed. Once the demolition is complete near the end of June and the site has been fully remediated, the property will be offered for sale for redevelopment. Contractors begin demolishing the Condill Hotel.

Photo by Adam Reaburn Contractors begin demolishing the Condill Hotel. Photo by Adam Reaburn Harvey said in a release that the sale of the lot will provide a return on investment over the next 20 or 30 years. Any proposed development will follow the City’s Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaws that guide the form and character of any new or renovated building in the downtown core. “This generational opportunity for downtown redevelopment will have a lasting effect on our community,” stated Mayor Lori Ackerman. The City of Fort St. John purchased the building last July from Leo and Elaine Budnick, and announced after taking possession in September that it would be demolishing the historic building. After being awarded the contract to demolish the hotel last October, Prince George-based NAPP Enterprises for just over $457,000, with the total budget of acquiring and remediating the site for development set at $1.5 million.After finding more hazardous material than what was published in the tender, NAPP submitted a number of change orders that resulted in the City increasing the demolition budget by roughly $650,000. However, since NAPP resumed work in February, Harvey said that the City has not received any more change orders.last_img read more

Ban hails Francophone communitys contribution to world peace

26 March 2010Marking the 40th anniversary of the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF), a global community of French-speaking people, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the head of the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) drew similarities between the two organizations’ commitment to peace and dialogue. “For 40 years, your organization has contributed directly to building a better world, a goal we share,” said Mr. Ban in a French-language video message. “It promotes diversity, contacts between people and humanism.” “Our organizations are based on one principle: we are stronger together in all our diversity, and separately,” the Secretary-General said, calling for the need to “continue to promote our common values, those that concern peace, human rights, for 40 years ahead and beyond.”Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, spoke of his love of French.“I am Japanese, as you may know, but for a very long time, I have loved your language,” he said in a speech to mark the day in New York.“I also know that French is a bridge between people of different ethnic groups, native languages, religions, cultures and even different culinary traditions,” Mr. Akasaka added, saying that French occupied a prominent place at the UN. French and English are the UN’s two working languages.“The OIF and the UN have another language in common: the language of peace,” Mr. Akasaka said. “From Canada to the Congo, Viet Nam or Cape Verde, the organization represents a world that values and promotes language and the values and cultures that it brings,” he said, arguing that French “serves as a bridge between countries of a region but also between regions within a country.”Mr. Akasaka said that the day was also an occasion to express solidarity with Haiti, which he said was a beacon of French culture through its literature, its music and its diaspora, following January’s catastrophic earthquake. “A country that has been so imbued with French that it used it to create a sister language, the Creole,” he added. read more

Trolley assist in Europe – Boliden Aitik trial will utilise four Cat

first_imgBoliden has initiated a pilot and demonstration project for the electrification of in-pit truck transports in Aitik – Sweden’s largest open pit copper mine – together with key partners in industry and academia. The project will develop, install and operate an electric transport route with electric trolley lines and four electric mine trucks.For the two-year project, Boliden has joined forces with Eitech and ABB to supply electrical infrastructure; Pon Equipment and Caterpillar for truck modifications; and Chalmers University with supporting research on system aspects of the electrification. The project is supported by the Swedish Energy Agency.IM understands that four trolley kits have been delivered to Boliden by Cat and that the four trucks concerned are 795F electric drive models. Aside from this Aitik trial, Boliden has also stated in a 2017 FEM presentation that trolley assist is also a promising technology to lower diesel consumption in the Kevitsa nickel/copper open pit. The FEM presentation in addition stated that the first Aitik trolley line will be 700 m long and save 830 m3 of diesel per year but that future trolley lanes will be even more profitable; and that the trial will see investment in a DC substation with 10 MW capacity.The technology developed will be a key enabler for Boliden’s mines’ strategy to move away from fossil fuel dependence. Reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of up to 80% on the transport segments where implemented are expected. There is also potential identified in transport electrification related to increased productivity.Erik Brandsma, Director General for the Swedish Energy Agency, sees this project with its potential for radical reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from mining as a further step towards reducing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes. “Reduced emissions from mining processes are important in order to produce future vehicles in a sustainable manner for example. In that context, this project is complementing the new ‘green’ Northvolt battery factory also supported by the agency.”The electric transport route will be in operation in the fall of 2018. Peter Palo, Project Manager for the system installation in Aitik says: “To manage the challenges of building the new infrastructure in the mine without interfering with running production or put safety at risk is critical. During the construction, we will have more than 30 workers active in the project at the same time.”Jonas Ranggård is Manager for Boliden Mines Energy Program. “The diesel transport is the main source of greenhouse gas emissions as well as local emissions influencing the work environment in the mine. Electrification is, as we see it, the enabler to move away from diesel and rely on renewable electric energy.”While electrification by trolley is not new, there are still many challenges to solve before the solution is proven. Rikard Mäki, Project Manager for the R&D project says: “To prove the technology in the climate we are in and with the size of vehicles we operate, it is critical to establish partnerships. We are proud to have a strong consortium in place with global leaders from both the needed industry sectors as well as academia. The support from the Swedish Energy Agency to the project gives the team confidence that we are doing the right thing, as well as puts us under healthy pressure to meet expectations and share the results to the community and industry.”last_img read more

Jeter un mégot à Paris coûtera bientôt 35 euros damende

first_imgJeter un mégot à Paris coûtera bientôt 35 euros d’amendeLes fumeurs qui jettent leurs mégots sur les trottoirs seront prochainement passibles d’une amende de 35 euros dans les rues de Paris, dont la propreté est au coeur de la campagne “Paris met les pollueurs à l’amende”. C’est une mesure qui risque de déplaire à bon nombre de fumeurs adeptes de ce petit geste : jeter son mégot sur le trottoir. Lundi, l’adjoint au maire chargé de la propreté, François Dagnaud, a annoncé que toute personne qui jette son mégot à Paris sera bientôt passible d’une amende de 35 euros. Une décision prise dans le cadre de la campagne “Paris met les pollueurs à l’amende”, débutée en septembre 2011 et destinée à lutter pour la propreté des trottoirs et des rues.À lire aussiCe corail préfère manger du plastique plutôt que de sa nourriture habituelle”Un mégot est un déchet très toxique qui met plusieurs années à se dégrader et qui peut polluer jusqu’à six litres d’eau. Il est normal dès lors que cette forme de pollution soit sanctionnée, comme les autres pollutions, mais il y a une tolérance jusqu’à présent, en attendant le déploiement des éteignoirs à cigarettes”, a justifié l’adjoint au maire. “Nous lançons donc le message suivant : nous verbaliserons les jeteurs de mégots sur les trottoirs quand il y aura des éteignoirs à cigarettes partout, ce qui sera le cas dans plusieurs mois”, a t-il ajouté cité par l’AFP. Cette année, 15.000 à 20.000 de ces éteignoirs à cigarettes seront installés, adossés aux poubelles pour atteindre un total de 30.000 dispositifs en 2014. Pour l’heure, “seuls” 2.000 éteignoirs sont à disposition des fumeurs. L’amende anti-mégot rejoint donc les autres actes de pollution qui en entrainaient déjà, à savoir : le dépôt sauvage d’encombrants, le fait de ne pas ramasser les crottes de son chien ou d’uriner en pleine rue. 11.659 procès verbaux ont été dressés au premier semestre 2011 pour infractions à la propreté.

Art wonders in Washougal

first_imgYou can drive about 90 miles east into the Columbia River Gorge to greet “She Who Watches” (aka Tsagaglalal), a truly ancient and priceless artwork. But your visit will be tightly chaperoned and strictly hands-off; the price for unauthorized trespass anywhere near “She Who Watches” is five years in jail or $100,000.Or, you can stop in Washougal, chat with “She Who Doodles” (aka mixed-media artist Cyndee Starr), check out the more-affordable prices on a wide variety of contemporary artworks — and get your hands on something to take home. It could even be Starr’s event-poster sketch of canoes at Captain William Clark Park, for a $20 donation to the Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance.That’s the nonprofit organization sponsoring this second annual Washougal Art Festival. It plans to plow proceeds into more public art for Washougal, such as the “Golden Back Heron” by artist Tom Jackson that now adorns Washougal City Hall, which was purchased with 2016’s festival proceeds.“Our event last year was such a success for us, our artists and the community that we are excited to host the festival again,” said organizer Janice Ferguson.Twenty-seven regional artists have been selected for this year’s show. Local artistic luminaries returning to Reflection Plaza on Saturday for a second round include Helen Brock, jewelry; Christopher Luna and Toni Partington, poetry books and collage art; and Barbara Wright, watercolors and inks. New additions this year include digital photographer Faun Scurlock; fiber artist Abbie Dick; Matt Gibson, who creates gleaming “fish designs” out of gleaming pennies and wood; and many more who work in every imaginable medium, from painting to embroidery and fused glass to metal sculpture.last_img read more

Despite Spending Deal Pentagon Still Must Cope with LongTerm Budget Pressure

first_imgTop DOD officials and defense hawks for the most part breathed a sigh of relief after congressional leaders reached a budget deal offering the Defense Department $56 billion above the spending caps in fiscal 2016 and 2017.Beyond the agreement’s window, though, defense officials will continue to face difficult budget decisions as they attempt to balance growing demands around the globe with rising costs for modernization, force structure and personnel, according to experts at this week’s Global Security Forum, an event sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.“I wouldn’t paint too rosy of a picture going forward,” said Steve Kosiak, a former Office of Management and Budget defense expert. Programs such as the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine replacement, the Air Force’s new bomber and tanker, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter will be forced to compete for resources, reported Defense News.Greater funding for the military could be on the way, said Christian Brose, staff director for the Senate Armed Services Director. “My sense [is] you will have candidates in both parties arguing, not for a once-in-a-generation buildup, but a buildup beyond what the program is currently,” Brose said.In fact, Brose predicted that defense supporters in Congress next year would push to increase DOD’s FY 2017 budget, reported Politico.“I think that where we will end up as we begin budgeting for next year is probably fighting about moving that topline,” he said.Of course, striking a new deal to increase defense spending won’t be easy. “Both Republicans and Democrats agree we need more money for defense,” Kosiak said, “but how does that fit into the overall [federal budget] package.”Without additional funding to pay for military activities in the Mideast, Europe and the Pacific, Congress would be forced to consider trimming force structure, shuttering bases or cutting contractors or depot workers, said Mackenzie Eaglen, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.“There’s no magic sauce here,” Eaglen said. ‘The entire economy needs to grow or you’re cutting defense under any scenario.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

At least 2000 hectares continues to burn in Sian Kaan

first_imgThe Secretariat of Ecology and Environment made an air tour of the affected area in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. The state governor said that resources have been allocated to put out the fire, however, personnel from Sedena and Semar will join efforts if needed. Authorities blame poachers in the area who they say, are the cause of the intense fire due to drought. The smoke is now visible from the federal Cancun-Chetumal highway and, according to experts, will take at least two weeks to fully put out.

Sian Ka’an, Q.R. — A forest fire that began several days ago continues to burn out of control at Sian Ka’án. The fire, which is believed to have been started by poachers, has already engulfed more than 2,000 hectares in the Lagunas de Muyil area.

Management filed for bankruptcy after the election of a "true friend" to the White House ironically wound up stifling sales The chapter 11 filing in Delaware bankruptcy court Sunday comes with a revised plan to eliminate $620 million in debt pay most creditors in full and hand over most of the company to a group of lenders Remington which makes weapons for military law enforcement and hunting customers had already outlined a plan on Feb 12 to file for bankruptcy and give control to lenders including Franklin Resources Inc and JPMorgan Asset Management The filing came after a weekend of marches across the US seeking tighter laws to fight gun violence Remington said in court filings that its efforts to finance a turnaround were complicated by parties who were reluctant to lend to a gunmaker After approaching 30 potential lenders financial adviser Lazard Freres & Co found “the vast majority” indicated “they were reluctant” Eight parties who entered into further discussions later declined and one outside lender who had agreed to provide a $100 million bankruptcy loan changed its mind according to the filing Remingtons fortunes took a hit last year after the election of Donald Trump a self-proclaimed " true friend" of the gun industry Gun enthusiasts traditionally stock up on firearms at times when political winds suggest tighter gun control lies ahead But Hillary Clintons defeat erased those fears leaving retailers stuffed with unsold inventory Chief Financial Officer Stephen P Jackson described the reason for the companys demise as a “significant decline” in sales and revenues in the last year after it had increased production rates to meet demand in 2017 that never materialized The Madison North Carolina-based company has 2700 employees at seven US manufacturing plants according to court filings It plans to win bankruptcy court approval of the restructuring by May 3 Reorganization Terms The turnaround differs slightly from a prior plan already negotiated with lenders that would cut debt by about $700 million and inject $145 million of new capital The current plan will eliminate $620 million of funded debt in exchange for equity in a new company Financing to get that done totals $338 million including a $193 million asset-based loan a $100 million debtor-in-possession financing loan and a $45 million “bridge” or “rescue” loan from Remingtons parent company to its operating subsidiaries After the outside lender backed out of the $100 million loan Remington got financing on better terms from its term-loan lenders and secured noteholders according to the filing The company seeks to keep fees for the loan under seal according to a court request The reorganization will convert the rescue loan into 175 percent of equity in a new company and the $100 million loan will convert to an exit loan while the asset-based loan will be repaid in cash according to court papers Pre-bankruptcy term loan lenders will get 825 percent of the new parent entity while third lien lenders will get cash and warrants Current equity will be canceled The company has asked to forgo the usual procedure of filing a full schedule of its debts and assets and seek final approval of a plan by May 3 Several Setbacks Recent setbacks for Remington have included an aborted public offering in 2011 and an investor revolt after one of its rifles was used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting The troubles have been a blow to Cerberus owned by private-equity billionaire Stephen Feinberg who has been a prominent Trump supporter New York-based Cerberus acquired Remington in 2007 and saddled it with almost $1 billion in debt After the Sandy Hook shooting Cerberus announced it would sell the company as its own agitated investors demanded an exit but it failed to find a buyer Concerns about rising gun violence mass shootings and accidents have prompted litigation some of it including Remington In 2016 the Massachusetts attorney general sought information from the company on complaints and recalls citing an investigation into its compliance with state laws and regulations on gun safety Remington has also been sued by individuals claiming some guns are defective and voluntarily recalled some of its models Industry Pressure The industry came under added pressure in February when a gunman using an AR-15 assault rifle was used in the Stoneman High School mass murder in Parkland Florida just days after Remington announced plans for a pre-arranged bankruptcy That weapon was a Smith & Wesson made by a unit of American Outdoor Brands Corp Remington which began with a hand-built rifle in 1816 went on to supply more than half the ammunition used by US and its allies in World War I and World War II according to its website It

They are all central to us, Like Tsonga,"Jasmine’s family,贵族宝贝Branden, Georgi Licovski—EPA Gendarmerie attempt to prevent people from entering the Eurotunnel terminal in Coquelles, “Good to know,上海419论坛Vygantas, “[I] said, there is enormous pressure on women to remove or reduce visible non-cranial-covering body hair Removing body hair takes time energy and money all things that most women could stand to have more of not less Sure some guys take flak for having a back thats "too hairy" or pluck out from under a unibrow or wax something (or somethings) I get it you are not immune to the pressures of our appearance-based culture At the same time some of these more modern manscaping grooming habits come under scrutiny as emasculating They peg manscapers as being "too much like women" (which is supposed to be an insult right) The mere fact that we have added words like “manscaping” and “metrosexual” to our lexicon means that they are marked as different unexpected from the norm Another way to say this is to ask what you call a woman who removes or reduces any body hair Well what do you call her Stumped We dont have a special word for a woman who removes or reduces body hair because its "just what women do" right Essentially you get to have it both ways If you want to remove some body hair you can be seen as "taking care of yourself" If you want to eschew a blade forever you can cast aspersions on the shavers with complete impunity or even with some admiration for your gender-essentialist curmudgeonliness (think of Ron Swanson on Parks and Rec) The fact that some assholes in high school made it really unappealing to take off your shirt at the beach does not erase that hairy is the default expectation for men Its worth taking a moment to consider why hairless is the default expected appearance for women Even in the midst of perpetual peril 3) It silences and erases the reality of women with facial hair (or when will I get MY month of facial hair celebration) I hate to break the well-plucked wall of secrecy on this but guys women have facial hair It’s not just Agatha Fratelli from The Goonies Its called hirsutism and it means "excessive hair growth" Basically how your hair follicles respond to testosterone (not necessarily the level of testosterone in your body) determines your overall outward hairiness Its people like me And it can be treated Wait what When we talk about hirsutism we are talking about a benign cosmetic abnormality Historically we have a bias toward "correcting" benign cosmetic abnormalities for the sake of feeling more comfortable or safer out in the world; it is easier to change our own appearance than to expect acceptance from the rest of the world Take a minute to let that one sink in There are numerous drugs available to "treat" hirsuitism; you can ingest or apply any number of drugs to "correct" something that is a totally harmless genetic attribute If this doesnt seem weird to you consider a world where it was normal to chop off a few centimeters of toe to "correct" Mortons Toe another harmless genetic abnormality (abnormal because it only occurs in about 10% of the population) In a minority of cases these drugs arent used to counter hirsutism; theyre used as part of a treatment plan for transgender women I am not going to dismiss or downplay the importance of passing in a transphobic society but suffice to say in an ideal world a transgender woman with facial hair would face the same level of discrimination as a non-transgender woman: none But this goes back to everything I brought up earlier: body hair including facial hair is not generally accepted as normal for women We are reminded of this regularly From Harnaam Kaur (the 20-something Sikh woman who was "caught" at the airport by a surreptitious photographer) to the RA who encouraged residents to engage in a no-shave November (and in doing so was labeled as a "weird feminist") While some of these stories push the narrative toward the story that body hair is normal I still dont feel comfortable going out into the world like this As if being a hairy lady-identified individual didnt cause me enough stress I also have alopecia areata This means I have random bald patches that spring up Depending on the body location too much hair is not-OK and hairlessness is also not-OK And even though there are drugs creams lotions shampoos and surgical procedures to "correct" naturally-occurring baldness in men (implying that baldness is not OK) consider difference in response to a bald man vs a hairy-legged woman Consider that there is a counter-narrative of virility and sex appeal for bald men to lean on to remind them that they are accepted by society as-is In short there is too much to splain so let me sum up: it is utterly frustrating and rage-inducing to watch mainstream media spend a month celebrating widely-accepted-and-considered-normal facial hair on men while saying at best nothing about womens facial hair and at worst "Eww gross" If facial hair is so amazing as to dedicate a whole month to celebrating it I want in on some of that action OK are your eyebrows furrowed in some righteous sense of injustice Wanna know what can you do Great Im so glad you are open to thinking about how you can cultivate your facial follicular garden and help everyone else who is not similarly encouraged Those arent mutually exclusive activities I am excited to have you on board as an ally First dont judge women by the choices we make about our body hair If body hair on women isnt your thing thats OK (but also maybe do some reflecting on how you came to have that preference; its an active not a neutral preference) In the non-vanilla sex world theres a saying: "not my kink" Its a short-hand way to say "I dont particularly care to do that but I am also simultaneously capable of not judging the fact that you like to do that" Thats easy that ones all in your head If you see a really attractive-to-you woman take a long stretch revealing her hairy armpits can you work through the process of seeing it as a choice she made rather than "Eww gross" Leveling up can you call out other people for judging women with body hair When you hear "Eww gross" can you challenge Judgy McJudgerson to see body hair as a choice as if all choices are valid regardless of whether or not theyre personally appealing to you When I was younger if I saw totally-freaky-to-me-weirdo my reaction was "Eww what a weirdo" Now my response is "Thanks pal Every visible unapologetic weirdo makes the world safer for weirdos" As a visible unapologetic weirdo myself I am invested in a safer world for weirdos and therefore thankful for other visible unapologetic weirdos going about their daily business in the midst of non-weirdos The point is I think even Judgy wants to be able to go to class in yoga pants and Uggs sometimes without experiencing ego-eroding derision Last lets say you prefer body hair on women Lets say its a total turn-on for you Own it Dont be afraid to express that preference if youre asked or if it comes up in conversation Respond to that "eww gross" with "Actually I think leg hair on women is pretty sexy" Dont be that guy in high school with a "secret girlfriend" My gram used to say "That goes to show ya theres a club for everyone" Its OK to be in the club of people who prefer some amount of body hair on women I assure you plenty of other people are walking around with membership cards tucked into their wallets Anyway Im dying to get this conversation started More than anything I want to be talking about gender and body hair instead of carrying on like nothings going on under the surface Do your gender identity and level of body hair collide Do you feel like they match Should body hair be a gender marker If you are female-identified whats your body hair level like Are you comfortable with it If your sexual preference includes female-identified partners do

trending topic Its just not" Davis said "Ive always considered myself an actor since I got my equity card in 1988 Ive never put any limitations on myself I felt like I could play Chekhov any character in Chekhov and Shakespeare in Arthur Miller in August Wilson I see myself as an actor No matter what is going on in the business I will find a way to practice my art and all of the actors of color who
