Funky phenoms Vulfpeck continue to serve up delicious content at the end of 2016. The band’s recently released The Beautiful Game has been the centerpiece of music released in 2016, but there’s no real limit to what the band can, and will, do.Case and point, “The Speedwalker,” a funky track from the band’s 2013 EP My First Car. Today, seemingly out of nowhere, the band released a music video for the three-year-old recording. Not only that, but the video is literally just Jack Stratton listening to the song and speedwalking through what we can assume is his neighborhood. It’s one of those things that’s better watched than described.Check out Vulfpeck’s new video for “The Speedwalker,” streaming below.
Despite a challenging market environment, German terminal operator Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) wrapped up the first half of 2019 with improved profitability.The group delivered a profit after tax of EUR 54.7 million (USD 61.2 million) in H1 2019, an increase of 4.4 percent compared to a profit of EUR 52.4 million seen in the same period last year.Total revenue rose by 9.6 percent to EUR 693.7 million in H1 2019 from EUR 633 million recorded in the first six months of 2018.What is more, the operating result (EBIT) improved strongly by EUR 14.4 million, or 14.4 %, to EUR 114.3 million. “The results achieved in the first half of the year confirm our expectations of reaching the targets forecast for 2019. However, these results only represent one step in our strategic plan to secure the success of HHLA in the mid- and long-term future,” Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board, commented.“In addition to the continued development of our core business and tapping into further business fields, sustainability and climate protection are integral elements of our business model. We are aware of our responsibility – not only for HHLA’s economic development but also towards society – and have already done a lot of work in this area,” Titzrath added.Container throughput increased moderately by 3.8 percent in the first half of the year, due in particular to the successful integration of the Estonian terminal operator HHLA TK Estonia, which was acquired last year.On the other hand, the three Hamburg container terminals showed a sideways trend with a marginal year-on-year increase in throughput volume of 0.1 percent.Additionally, a significant rise of 9.6 percent in container transport was achieved.OutlookDue to the takeover of North America services and the first full-year consolidation of throughput volumes of the HHLA TK Estonia container terminal, HHLA expects a slight overall increase in container throughput in 2019. Slight year-on-year growth is also expected for container transport.At a group level, this should lead to a slight increase in revenue, HHLA concluded.HHLA operates container terminals in Hamburg, Odessa and Tallinn.
NZ Herald 23 July 2016Family First Comment: An interesting discussion – although note that there is very little discussion around what’s best for children, and their needs.“Divorce has never been easier and, for marriages where abuse or genuine incompatibility is at play, shooting the horse can be the best option. But for others it’s not so straightforward: according to several British studies, upwards of 33 per cent of those who divorce will regret their decision within five years.”There is a tiny chapel perched in the meadow above Judge’s Bay, in Parnell. White and wooden, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic summer wedding.A 10-minute drive from there, crouching low over the wind-tunnel of Albert St, is the Auckland District Court. Above the entrance, a large patch of mould is creeping down the facade to meet the New Zealand Coat of Arms.Of the 10,000 or so couples who marry in New Zealand yearly, roughly a third will eventually end up filing the papers here, on level 6, to dissolve their marriage.Divorce has never been easier and, for marriages where abuse or genuine incompatibility is at play, shooting the horse can be the best option. But for others it’s not so straightforward: according to several British studies, upwards of 33 per cent of those who divorce will regret their decision within five years.Google “divorce regret” and you will find the internet is littered with those regretting their decision to end it.Whisper, the app where people anonymously share secrets, logs confessions from people wishing to turn back the clock, side by side with those happy to be moving on.Sir Paul Coleridge, a retired family law judge in London, has seen exactly this scenario play out many times. He spent 42 years in the family law system, 30 as a barrister and the remaining 12 as a judge, divorcing couples. He was so frustrated by witnessing what he felt were many unnecessary divorces, that he founded a think-tank, the Marriage Foundation, in 2012. While the family court provides a remedy for the problem, the foundation is his attempt to address its cause.Most divorce is concentrated in the first 10 years of marriage, when the stress of young families, hectic lives and money pressures can be overwhelming. He says more than half of the divorce cases he heard were salvageable, despite reaching litigation. They hadn’t hit the point of no return, things had just got much tougher than they would like.If the marriage is sound, the way through, he says, is for spouses to confront the aspects of themselves and their marriage that they would rather ignore, and address those difficulties head-on.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11679476Keep up with family issues in NZ.

But with Jurgen Klopp’s side heading for their first win over a major rival of the campaign, Willian lobbed Simon Mignolet with an overhit cross to earn Antonio Conte’s champions a share of the points.Willian’s goal was only the second Liverpool had conceded at Anfield in the league this season and stemmed a run of three successive league wins for the home side.Chelsea remain third, three points clear of Liverpool, whose frustration was exacerbated by the knowledge fourth-place Tottenham Hotspur had earlier dropped points against West Bromwich Albion.Chelsea were left three points below second-place Manchester United and could now find themselves 11 points behind Manchester City if the leaders win at Huddersfield Town on Sunday.The team sheets were almost as notable for who was on the bench as for who was in the two starting XIs, with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Willian all kicking their heels in the dug-outs.Klopp used his programme notes to urge his side not to forget how well they had played in the first half against Sevilla, but for all their early possession here, it was Chelsea who possessed the keener edge. Eden Hazard, playing off the recalled Alvaro Morata, was central to everything the visitors did, repeatedly dropping deep to baffle Liverpool’s midfielders with devastating feints and turns.He was the first player to threaten, gathering a pass from Danny Drinkwater and cutting in from the left before dispatching a low shot that Belgium team-mate Mignolet had to turn behind.– Hazard penalty shouts –It was Hazard’s through-ball that obliged Mignolet to slide out and save at Drinkwater’s feet and it was from Hazard’s lay-off that Davide Zappacosta warmed the Liverpool goalkeeper’s palms from 20 yards.The ensuing corner — taken by Hazard — produced a goal-mouth scramble in which both Morata and Gary Cahill threatened, while Marcos Alonso curled a trademark free-kick narrowly wide.Not until the 41st minute did Liverpool — for whom Daniel Sturridge started up front — muster a shot of note, Salah whipping an effort fractionally wide from the right. Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | A fluke 85th-minute goal by substitute Willian denied Liverpool a morale-boosting Premier League victory as Chelsea rescued a 1-1 draw at a chilly Anfield on Saturday.Looking to bounce back from the trauma of letting a 3-0 lead slip in their 3-3 draw at Sevilla in the Champions League, Liverpool went ahead in the 65th minute through former Chelsea man Mohamed Salah. Hazard was involved in penalty shouts either side of half-time, first escaping punishment for a nudge on Philippe Coutinho and then seeing his own appeals dismissed after tripping over James Milner’s foot.Klopp moved Salah into a more central position in the second half and it served to enliven the hosts, Thibaut Courtois almost turning Sturridge’s cross into his own net and saving from Jordan Henderson.As the game opened up, Chelsea also threatened — Zappacosta zipping the ball across the face of goal and Morata turning Drinkwater’s cross wide at the near post — but it was Liverpool who went ahead.Tiemoue Bakayoko failed to cut out Coutinho’s pass and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s prodded pass freed Salah to tuck his 10th goal of the league campaign — and 15th of the season — past Courtois.Salah, who is the league’s top scorer, did not celebrate his goal in what may have been a tribute to the over 300 victims of Friday’s bomb and gun attack in his native Egypt.He was prevented from being the match-winner when Willian drifted across the Liverpool box from left to right before hitting an overhit cross that floated over Mignolet and beneath the crossbar.Salah came close to restoring Liverpool’s lead in stoppage time, but his snapshot was pushed aside by Courtois.Share on: WhatsApp
By Allison Perrine Commissioner Patricia M. Butch said she found it interesting that in the sports trend analysis, the percentage of children who play team and individual sports regularly has declined. “That’s the only one that I saw that has really declined and I think that that has helped move everybody to more passive recreation and some of the alternative programs that the parks system provides,” she noted. “I think it’s great that we offer so many alternatives.” According to the 2018 annual report from the county park system, there were a total of over 6.4 million park visits and 6,230 recreation programs offered. New facilities were added to county parks, such as benches at Fisherman’s Cove Conservation Area, and maintenance and improvement projects were completed, such as the replacement of barn roof wood shingles at Longstreet Farm. There are already dozens of programs offered to locals in Monmouth County, involving nature, art, crafts, sports, fitness, history and much more. Conroy presented a few in each category though there are many additional offered around the county, including nature programs at Sandy Hook, Brookdale Community College and Poricy Park; art programs at Brookdale, the Middletown Arts Center and Monmouth Arts in Red Bank; sports programs at the Atlantic Club, Good Sports USA and All Sports; fitness programs at YMCAs, the Atlantic Club and Brookdale; history programs at Howell Living History Farm, Twin Lights and the Monmouth County Historical Association; among many others. “Participants went on a total of 10.9 billion outdoor outings in 2017,” she said. “Young kids tend to be more active overall…and bird watching is up 6.1 percent.” Pickleball is also up by over 3 percent nationally, Conroy said, with additional increased participation in hiking, running, kayaking, volleyball, fishing, fitness classes, tai chi, family programs and active adult programs, among others. Noting these spikes in interest, the Monmouth County Park System is expanding its programs in these areas, Conroy said. Sports trends show that camping, fishing and biking have become some of the most popular activities for several age groups, though levels of interest vary, she said. Trends show that millennials are more likely than other generations to participate in water sports, including paddle boarding and surfing. For additional information about the Monmouth County Park System, visit monmouthcountyparks.com. According to Conroy, recreation trends show that fitness and sports continue to have the highest participation rates nationwide. As part of a presentation to board members, Conroy reviewed a recreation services plan for feedback – and she hopes, approval – at the next meeting in September. This will be the first recreation services plan update since 2010. MIDDLETOWN — Pickleball, bird watching and paddle boarding are among the rising recreation trends nationwide, superintendent of recreation Patti Conroy told the Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners Monday. She also presented a handful of offerings the county park system has for locals in addition to programs from private and public organizations. Responding to an additional question from Butch, Conroy said this plan is interconnected with the open space plan and park master plan in the county.“This plan is one of the standards that has to be updated every three to five years in order for us to pass and keep our certification,” Conroy said. The next Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners meeting is set for 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9 at Thompson Park.
