France Arrests Six for Suspected Attack on Macron

Rabat- Police carried out searches in Isere, southeast of Lyon; in Moselle, on the border with Germany and Luxembourg; and in Ille-et-Vilaine, near Rennes in northeast France.The French intelligence agency DGSI arrested the individuals, five men and a woman, who are reportedly linked to a far-right movement.DGSI has not yet issued details on the detainees except that they are being between the ages of 22 and 62. The suspects had reportedly been under DGSI surveillance.The arrests come two days after President Emmanuel Macron spoke in an interview with Le Courrier Picard on the escalating threat of the far-right movement. He said complacency in the early 1900s paved the way for Hitler’s rise in Germany and Mussolini’s in Italy. read more

UN agency declares TB an emergency in Africa urges extraordinary action

“Despite commendable efforts by countries and partners to control tuberculosis, impact on incidence has not been significant and the epidemic has now reached unprecedented proportions,” UN World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for Africa Luis Gomes Sambo told a meeting of health ministers in Maputo, Mozambique.“Urgent and extraordinary actions must be taken, or else the situation will only get worse and the TB targets in the Abuja Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will not be achieved,” he added, referring to goals set by regional organizations and the MDG targets set by the UN Millennium Summit of 2000.A resolution adopted at the end of the 55th session of WHO’s Regional Committee for Africa, comprising health ministers from 46 countries, urged Member States to commit more human and financial resources to strengthen DOTS programmes and scale up collaborative interventions to fight the co-epidemic of TB and HIV.DOTS, the internationally recommended strategy to control TB, combines five elements: political commitment, microscopy services, drug supplies, surveillance and monitoring systems, and the use of highly efficacious treatment regimes with direct observation of treatment.These and other measures recommended by the Committee encompass those laid out in a blueprint developed by the global Stop TB Partnership, which calls for $2.2 billion in new funding for TB control in Africa during 2006-2007. In the other four WHO regions of the world, TB trends are either stable or in decline, and are on track to reach the MDG targets of halving TB prevalence and deaths by 2015. Beyond more financial support, specific actions include: improving the quantity and quality of staff for TB control; rapidly enhancing detection and treatment with expanded DOTS coverage at national and district levels; managing of TB and HIV together with greater access to anti-retroviral therapy for patients co-infected with HIV; and expanded public-private and community participation.Globally, TB is second only to HIV/AIDS as a cause of illness and death of adults, accounting for nearly 9 million cases of active disease and 2 million deaths every year. Although it has only 11 per cent of the world’s population, Africa accounts for more than a quarter of this global burden with an estimated 2.4 million cases and 540,000 deaths annually. read more

Tigers Advance To World Series By Sweeping Yankees

Tigers Advance To World Series By Sweeping Yankees

Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Perlata hit two-run homers in a four-run fourth inning against New York Yankees’ ace C.C. Sabathia to catapult the Detroit Tigers to an 8-1 victory Thursday night to sweep the Yankees out of the playoffs for the first time in 32 years.And so, the Tigers advance to the World Series to face the National League winner between St. Louis and San Francisco.“It’s an unbelievable feeling,” Cabrera said. “Four more wins, guys. Four more wins.”Pitcher Max Scherzer took a no-hit bid into the sixth against a starting lineup that was again without benched Alex Rodriguez, who flied out with two on in the sixth as a pinch hitter.Austin Jackson added a solo shot in the seventh for Detroit, and Peralta hit another homer an inning later.The game ended with Fielder, Detroit’s $214 million acquisition, catching Jayson Nix’s popup. The Tigers spilled onto the field for a celebration that began near second base and eventually moved closer to the third-base line.General manager Dave Dombrowski hugged Jim Leyland — who is in the final year of his contract — while owner Mike Ilitch rubbed the 67-year-old manager’s right shoulder.“I’ve got a great bunch. We don’t have one hot dog in the bunch,” the pizza magnate said. “They’re all great guys. … The Tigers are something special.”… The Tigers are something special.”Detroit won its 11th American League pennant and first since 2006. The Tigers have five days off before the World Series starts Wednesday at defending champion St. Louis or 2010 winner San Francisco.After scoring in just three of 39 innings during the series, New York headed home to face unpleasant questions about its future after a postseason of awful hitting, benched stars and veterans showing the wear and tear of age. Rodriguez, the $275 million third baseman, was out of the starting lineup for the third time in the playoffs. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera could only watch following season-ending injuries.The Yankees, with a big league-high $222 million payroll, hit .188 in the postseason — a record low for a team that played at least seven games — and .157 in the LCS. New York went quietly in the ninth inning, with the Comerica crowd chanting “Sweep!” while the last three batters were retired in order.Detroit outhit New York 16-2 in the finale and 46-22 in the series. The Tigers’ starters are 4-1 with a 1.02 ERA in this postseason.Without a World Series title since 1984, Detroit lost to Texas in last year’s ALCS, lost slugger Victor Martinez  to a season-ending knee injury in January and quickly replaced his offense by signing Fielder. The excitement of that bold acquisition subsided a bit when the Tigers struggled to a 26-32 start in the AL Central, but they overtook the Chicago White Sox in the final 10 days of the regular season and won the division with an 88-74 record, matching the Cardinals for the fewest wins among the 10 playoff teams.“I just reminded everybody when we took our punches all year, ‘You know what? Let’s just wait till the end, and then if we have underachieved, I will be the first one to admit it,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. “So hopefully we’ve quieted some doubters now. The guys just stepped it up when we had to. We caught a couple breaks when the White Sox couldn’t win a couple of games they needed to win.” read more

OSU mens lacrosse makes up for 1st loss with tripleOT win against

After suffering its first loss of the season against Massachusetts on Feb. 26, the No. 16-ranked Ohio State men’s lacrosse team bounced back in dramatic fashion, defeating Penn State, 6-5, in triple overtime on Saturday. The win, the Buckeyes’ first on the road, moves OSU to 4-1 on the season. OSU coach Nick Myers said there was no time to dwell on the first defeat of the season. “We looked at the way we played in our facets, and just felt like we fell short of playing 60 minutes of Buckeye lacrosse,” Myers said after practice Wednesday. “And that’s certainly our goal every week when we step out there and we’re going to try and do that against Penn State.” The Buckeyes did just that. Sophomore attackman Logan Schuss recorded two goals and two assists on the day for the Buckeyes, and they could not have come at better times. He sent the game into overtime, scoring the game-tying goal with 34 seconds left in regulation. Schuss also scored the game-winner against Penn State for the second consecutive year. He has scored at least one point in 19 consecutive games. Despite trailing, 4-2, at halftime and, 5-2, in the second half, OSU was able to battle back and did not allow a goal the rest of the match after the Nittany Lions scored at 5:49 in the third quarter. Freshman goalie Greg Dutton continued to play well for OSU, making nine saves. Also scoring goals for OSU were sophomore attackman Jeff Tundo, freshman attackman Tyler Frederick, junior defenseman Brock Sorensen and senior midfielder Zach Boyt. OSU could claim itself “unofficial Big Ten champions” with the win against Penn State. The two schools are the only ones in the Big Ten that have Division 1 lacrosse programs. The Buckeyes have turned their attention to the unranked Lehigh Mountain Hawks. The Buckeyes have been nationally ranked since Feb. 21, but Boyt said there is no added pressure to the team. “It’s always been about us,” he said. “We don’t really look at those rankings this early in the season.” Sorensen agreed and said the team just needs to focus on its next opponent. “Those rankings don’t mean anything at this point,” he said. “We’ve got a long season ahead of us, so we’ve just got to keep getting better each day.” The game against Lehigh will be the first home game for OSU since it defeated then-No. 3-ranked North Carolina on Feb. 19. The Buckeyes and Mountain Hawks are scheduled to face off at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Bye week a chance to develop young players take time off

Sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa celebrates during a game against Maryland on Oct. 4 in College Park, Md. OSU won, 52-24.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorLife doesn’t stop for Ohio State football players when they get a week off, but it certainly slows down — especially for the upperclassmen.Coming off a 52-24 win against Maryland on Saturday, the Buckeyes have a week off before returning to the field at Ohio Stadium on Oct. 18. Coach Urban Meyer said he is taking the week to give some younger players heavier reps, while lightening the workload for experienced starters.“This (week) I am getting (freshman defensive lineman) Jalyn Holmes a million reps right now and some of the players have to get ready to go,” Meyer said Wednesday. “Some of them though — (senior defensive lineman Michael) Bennett, we have pulled off of him a little bit.”Along with Bennett, Meyer said sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa is getting fewer game-style reps in practice this week.Senior defensive lineman Steve Miller said the week off has been less intense than the Buckeyes’ first bye week of the season, and added it’s been a good chance to make sure some young players get the practice time they need.“It’s been more laid-back for this break,” Miller said Wednesday. “Just trying to get some of the young guys ready.”While the week off doesn’t mean the players can shut it down quite yet, the upcoming weekend without a game gives them a chance to get away. “We don’t practice on Sunday night because I want them to get out of here,” Meyer said. “(Freshman linebacker) Raekwon McMillan I know is going home to see his mom. He has earned that right to go do that.”McMillan played his high school football in Hinesville, Ga.But if players choose not to head home, Meyer said he wants them to keep football on their mind.“It is our second weekend (off). Some guys aren’t (going home) so maybe they will be over to coaches’ houses on Saturday and we are going to finalize plans,” he said. “I want them somewhere, if they are not going home, I want them around a coach.”Miller said he’ll likely be on the list of players who don’t have to spend their weekend with one of the OSU coaches.“I’m gonna probably go home, probably see my family and rest up,” Miller, a Canton, Ohio, native, said.Even though he gets a chance to spend some extra time with his family, Miller said the bye week doesn’t necessarily come at a good time for the Buckeyes.“It’s been strange, because it’s real early,” he said. “And we really aren’t that banged up yet, so it really (isn’t) that bad to be taking a break.”OSU’s first bye week came after a 66-0 win against Kent State in its third game of the season. That win shifted the team’s momentum after a 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech the week before. Coming out of that week off, the Buckeyes’ offense posted 710 yards against Cincinnati before routing the Terrapins for a third consecutive win.Meyer said that first week off “came at the right time,” but added he doesn’t have the same feelings this time around.“You could see we played pretty well afterwards,” he said. “This one, I don’t know. All I know is it remains to be seen. It is uncomfortable to be honest with you.”Meyer said he has looked at past years, and there hasn’t been a time one of his teams has had two bye weeks so early in the season.While his coach isn’t quite excited to be taking a break, junior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren said it hasn’t been all negative. Boren said he and others on the team have been fighting through minor injuries, so a week off can help them get healthy.“I think it’s working right now, and we’ll see how everything else works out,” he said.After the week off, the Buckeyes are scheduled to face Rutgers on Oct. 18 at Ohio Stadium to cap off homecoming week. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. read more

Valve Index VR headset to start at 499 ship before July

first_imgValve’s VR headset launches this summer. Valve As if there weren’t enough virtual reality headsets already, game maker Valve is preparing to release its own take on the technology.It may see odd that Valve — whose Steam online game store and popular adventure titles like Half-Life and Portal have made it a household fixture among gamers — is choosing to release its first headset now. The device, called Valve Index, builds on technology the company developed with HTC for the Vive headset originally released in 2016.  It is available for preorder starting Wednesday and will ship by June 28, according to the company’s store.Valve said its headset, which brings two screens so close to your eyes that it tricks your brain into thinking you’re in a computer-generated world, has sharper visuals and has controllers designed to be easier to use and better for gameplay than those of its competitors.The new headset comes as Facebook’s Oculus VR division prepared to release two new headsets, the $399 Oculus Quest and $399 Oculus Rift S, in the coming weeks. The Quest is designed to offer higher quality game experiences without connecting to a computer, while the Rift S promises sharper visuals and better sensors to track your movements.Whether the new devices will draw users is anyone’s guess. A recent IDC survey sponsored by PlayStation VR headset maker Sony found that VR headset sales in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan rose 60% in 2018 to 3.9 million headsets, up from 2.4 million in 2017.Here’s everything to know about Valve’s Index so far.Valve’s Knuckles controllers may look a little weird, but promise easier gameplay in the VR world. Valve It uses Valve’s Knuckles controllersThere are already specialized controllers for Sony’s PlayStation VR, HTC’s Vive and Facebook’s Oculus. Now, Valve is jumping into the game with its Knuckles controller. This device wraps around your — you guessed it! — knuckles and has sensors that track your fingers. Valve says there are 87 sensors in each controller, including for motion, force and finger placement.The result is that you’ll be able to reach out and grip something in the real world, and you’ll see your hand grab something in the VR world. Index uses Valve’s new Base Station sensorsValve’s original “Lighthouse” sensors, announced in 2015, were a hit among developers for more precisely tracking a person’s movements as they walked around a room. The next generation of its sensors, called Base Station 2, can track you over a bigger area, Valve says.valve index headset-08Enlarge ImageValve’s Index has an unusual set of “off-ear” speakers that don’t actually touch your ears. Valve Valve will sell you just the headset, just the controllers or just the sensors, if you likeThe Valve Index headset alone will cost $499. A pair of the Knuckles controllers are $279. And a single Base Station 2 sensor costs $149.You can also mix and match. A headset and controllers, for example, will cost $749. And a package of all the new headwear (the Valve Index headset, two room sensors and two Knuckles controllers) will cost $999.The Valve Index has an unusual headphone setupMost headsets offer headphones attached to them, like the Oculus Rift, or for you to plug in headphones of your own, like with the HTC Vive. The Valve Index has an unusual earpiece that it calls “near-field off-ear” speakers. The company says this technique produces more natural audio sounds and none of the typical discomfort that comes with wearing headphones for extended periods.It’s not Valve’s first VR headsetWhile Valve may not have sold a VR headset before, it’s been developing the technology for years. For example, the Base Station technology that helps power the HTC Vive was developed in part by Valve.  Valve Virtual Reality Facebook HTC Sony Tags Mobile Gaming Digital Media Virtual Reality Apps 2 Share your voice Commentslast_img read more

Houston Leads Nation In Dining Out

first_img Share Matthew PrendergastNinfa’s is a historic restaurant in not just the East Downtown area but all of Houston.It’s no secret that Houston is a “foodie-paradise.” A new survey from Zagat says Houstonians eat out more than in any other major city in America.According to their 2018 Dining Trends Survey, when you add breakfast, lunch and dinner, Americans typically dine out 5.9 times per week. If you eliminate breakfast the number drops to 4.9 dine out meals per week. But in Houston, respondents to the Zagat survey said they eat out seven times per week.People in Minneapolis, Minnesota dine out the least according to the survey, leaving the house for a meal just 4.7 times per week. The survey says the average meal costs $36.40 per person, and the average person tips 18.1%. The survey also concludes that 53% of people use social media to help choose where to eat, and that 75% of those social media users, pick their place to eat based on shared food photos.last_img read more

Life exhibition moves to Nicosia

Life exhibition moves to Nicosia

first_imgA group art exhibition ‘Life’ in aid of charity Pasykaf will open in its final destination, Nicosia on Saturday and members of the public will be able to purchase ‘bargain’ art as prices are being reduced by half in order to raise as much money as possible, said the organiser.The month-long touring art show is the vision of Paphos resident Sarah Coyne, and features more than one hundred pieces of art by leading Cypriot and European artists. Thirty pieces have already been sold but will continue to be part of the exhibition which will be in Nicosia at the 10,10,4 gallery for the next ten days, said Coyne.The artworks have been donated for sale and all of all funds raised will be given to Pasykaf – The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends, to be used for their ‘direct support services’. This includes the home-care nurses, similar to Macmillan nurses in the UK, a bus service to take patients to the Oncology Centre in Nicosia, social and psychological support, a day centre for physiotherapy and ongoing support for cancer patients and their families.“We need to sell all of the art by the end of the exhibition to make as much money as possible for Pasykaf, we have a responsibility to sell it and support the wonderful work of this charity,” she told the Cyprus Mail.Coyne said that along with reducing the price on the final evening of the exhibition, March 17, an auction will be held to sell anything that is left. There will be reserve prices set on the pieces though, in order to be ‘fair’ to the donating artists, she said.“There are so many stunning pieces and I really hope that the public will rally round and support us,” she said. Participating artists include: Andros Efstathiou, Andreas Makriou, Philippos Yiapanis, Kyriacos Lyras, Louis Stavrou Yiannapis, Artiste Andre, Penelope Constantinou, Michael Gorman, George Kotsonis, Katja Tonja, Julie Hart, Anna Privaloff, Mary Chojnowski, Anna Roman, Maria Ignatiou Shiakalli, Sharen Taylor, Despoina Christou, Alexander Marescu and Keith Walker.The Space Art for Charity is a non-profit initiative which got underway in 2015 and all those involved in the organisation and promotion of the event are volunteers. So far, it has raised more than €10,000 for local charities.The exhibition is proving a success so far, with both Paphos and Limassol events being well attended. Mayor of Paphos Phedonas Phedonos inaugurated the exhibition at the Almyra Hotel last month, which was also attended by the British High Commissioner to Cyprus, Matthew Kidd.Coyne, who is passionate about art and culture, noted that whilst in the capital, the exhibition is being held under the auspices of the ministry of education and culture.“It has been a challenging but worthwhile experience and there has been great support from all of the participating artists and businesses involved who have all given their services for free,” she said.Group exhibition ‘Life’ in support of Pasykaf.

UPDATED Bank union calls off planned strike business had deemed reckless

UPDATED Bank union calls off planned strike business had deemed reckless

first_imgBy Stefanos Evripidou Bank employees’ union ETYK announced on Thursday its decision to call off a planned two-hour strike for Friday.The union decided to recall its decision to hold a protest work stoppage from 12.30pm to 2.30pm following a compromise deal reached with the Bank of Cyprus management over the early retirement scheme being offered to employees.ETYK’s initial decision to call a strike sparked the fury of the employers and industrialists’ federation OEV which accused the union of being “reckless and self-destructive”.ETYK on Wednesday  called on its members to hold a two-hour work stoppage as part of its negotiating tactics with the Bank of Cyprus (BoC) leadership over the early retirement scheme, drawing the ire of business associations.In a written statement on ETYK’s website, the union demands an extension of the BoC’s voluntary retirement scheme so that when bank employees decide whether to participate or not, they are in a position to know what will happen to their pension/provident funds.ETYK also demands the troubled bank extends its health and life insurance cover by at least five years and that, when calculating salaries in determining retirement packages, number-crunchers use “pre-haircut” salaries.The union further demands the government unfreeze all provident funds (the portion not subject to a haircut), so that employees can have immediate access to the funds should they choose voluntary retirement.According to ETYK, the union wants the early retirement scheme to work which is why it has proposed a further 2.5 per cent increase in salary cuts, taking the total to 15 per cent and pledged to contribute €15m from its own resources to distribute among employees who choose the plan, should the BoC accept its terms.To highlight their demands and protest the Bank’s stance, the union has decided to call all its members to hold a two-hour work stoppage tomorrow from 12.30pm to 2.30pm.“If per chance, the bank or any other person involved ignores us then we will be forced to proceed with an escalation of measures,” said the announcement.The Employers and Industrialists’ Federation (OEV) yesterday condemned the “reckless and self-destructive” call for strike action.While the rest of the country and political leadership were undertaking “heroic efforts to restore the smooth functioning of the financial system, it is inconceivable that the bank employees union should take strike measures” and undermine efforts to normalise the economy after taking a heavy blow, said OEV.It added: “Tens of thousands have been made unemployed without any additional payouts from businesses collapsing as a result of recent events. Against this tragic backdrop, it is considered a grave provocation to carry out bank strikes to demand higher additional payouts from a business that is struggling for its survival.”OEV accused ETYK of undermining the voluntary retirement scheme through its actions to date, arguing that this in turn will eventually result in resorting to the painful option of forced redundancies.“The only hope for the country to survive is to restore immediately trust in the banking system. ETYK’s strikes have the exact opposite effect.”The employers and industrialists’ group demanded ETYK call off the strike threats, adding that the tolerance shown by businesses and society so far has finally reached breaking point. It also called on the state to intervene and reverse “ETYK’s destructive intentions”.Cyprus had to wind down one lender, Laiki Bank, and use, or bail-in, customer deposits exceeding €100,000 to prop up BoC, as part of the bailout agreement.Provident funds were also affected by the bail-in, which has not been completed yet, and the uncertainty is hindering the lender’s retirement scheme.An asset evaluation of the BoC, undertaken by KPMG London, is expected to be handed over today, while part of the asset evaluation of Laiki was delivered yesterday, and the remainder is due tomorrow, according to reports.Completion of the asset evaluation brings the resolution authority, the Central Bank of Cyprus, closer to calculating the final rate of the bail-in of bank deposits at the BoC.Reports suggest the final figure could be known within the next two weeks, if not earlier.So far, 37.5 per cent of uninsured deposits at BoC have been seized and an additional 22.5 per cent was blocked and could follow the same fate.From the remainder, depositors can only use 10 per cent.Unconfirmed speculation doing the press rounds last week suggested the final bail-in percentage will be around 50 per cent.Finance Minister Harris Georgiades has said he discussed getting an advance from international lenders to cover the provident funds of bank employees who chose to leave BoC under the retirement scheme.However, to be able to ask for the advance, the final rate of the bail-in must be finalised.Georgiades reiterated that the haircut on the provident funds of Laiki employees will be the same as that of their BoC colleagues.Provident funds are not covered by the deposit protection scheme, but the government has pledged to limit the losses of provident fund members to around 25 per cent of the amount they would have received before the EU decision to restructure the two Cypriot banks.If for instance the haircut at the BoC reaches 50 per cent, workers will immediately receive the rest. Employees will receive the additional 25 per cent when they reach retirement age.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
