Barcelona will support Dembele says general manager

first_imgThe 21-year-old is being criticized because he has problems with punctuality and was sick during the weekendDuring the week, France national team manager Didier Deschamps was honest and said that Ousmane Dembele had problems with punctuality.The 21-year-old was also sick this weekend and did not appear in Barcelona’s match against Real Betis.But now the Blaugrana general manager Pep Segura has come out in defense of the youngster.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“There’s no problem with Dembele,” Segura was quoted by ESPN in a talk with radio Cadena Ser.“It’s a normal situation for a young player with a lot of talent who has arrived at a club as big as Barca, full of great players. He had never experienced that before and there’s an adaptation process that he has to go through.”“He’s really young and he’s never had to get up to adjust to a playing style like ours. We admit he’s finding it difficult. He also recognizes that. What we are doing is working as hard as possible so that he can adapt in the best possible way,” he added.“As of today we have no offers for Dembele and we have no plans to change the structure of the squad.”last_img read more

New York City mayor sets 15 minimum wage for government staff

first_imgThe minimum wage for New York City government employees and those who provide contracted work for the city at social service organisations is to rise to $15 an hour by the end of 2018.Bill de Blasio, New York City mayor, has announced that the higher rate will benefit around 50,000 workers, including 20,000 direct city employees and 30,000 purchase of service employees.It will cost approximately $238 million to implement the wage increase through to fiscal year 2020.At present, the minimum hourly rate for directly employed staff is $11.79, and purchase of service employees earn a minimum of $11.50 an hour. The minimum rate will increase on an annual basis to reach $15 by 31 December 2018.In November 2015, New York State governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the minimum wage for state workers would rise from $9 to $15 an hour. New York is the US first state to enact a $15 public sector minimum wage.Approximately 10,000 state employees will benefit from this increase, of which 9,000 are based outside of New York City and 1,000 are within the city.The rate will be phased in gradually, reaching the set rate by the end of 2018 for city workers and by July 2021 statewide.Mayor de Blasio said: “We know that nothing does more to lift up working families and move our economy forward than raising wages, and the city is leading by example by doing just that for these 50,000 additional New Yorkers.”Thomas Perez, US labour secretary, added: “The fight to raise the minimum wage is about more than a number, it’s about fairness and the dignity of work. No one who works a full-time job in this country should have to live in poverty.“Mayor Bill de Blasio’s action today is the right thing to do and the smart thing to do; it will give city workers a little more money in their pockets to spend in their community and a little more breathing room and peace of mind.”last_img read more

Time Inc Mulls Making Time People Sites SubscriptionBased

first_imgTime.com posted roughly 30 million page views in mid-December, after Barack Obama was announced Time’s 2008 Person of the Year. Meanwhile, People.com in 2008 reported 46 percent year-over-year growth (compared with the industry average of about 10 percent), including an average of 8.6 million monthly uniques—a 36 percent increase year-over-year.The spokesperson told FOLIO: that paid content is one of several alternative revenue sources the company is considering. “If we did have a paid content area online, it would just be for select content—a majority of content on Time Inc. sites will remain free,” the spokesperson said.  “We’re also looking at devices like e-readers which obviously have both a subscription and advertising stream as well as micro-payments for things like select iPhone applications.” As the sustainability of free content online continues to be debated, Time Inc. CEO Ann Moore said the mega publisher is considering taking a major step in the paid content direction: by making Time.com and People.com subscription-based.”I think it is time for Time Inc. to sit down and seriously think, what is the model,” Moore [pictured] told England’s Telegraph newspaper. “We are going to have to figure out a way to have paid content in the future.”A company spokesperson declined to comment on Time Inc.’s online revenue.last_img read more

UAF mountaineering class recovers from avalanche

first_imgMembers of a University of Alaska Fairbanks mountaineering class are recovering after being hit by an avalanche in the eastern Alaska Range.  The incident has raised questions about the university taking students into the mountains.University of Alaska Fairbanks (Creative Commons photo by Jimmy Emerson)Download AudioThe McCallum Peak climbing trip was the culmination of an 11 week University of Alaska Fairbanks mountaineering course. UAF spokeswoman Marian Grimes says the group, which included 9 students and 4 instructors was climbing up the Canwell Glacier off the Richardson Highway Saturday when the slide triggered.”Some people were partially buried in the snow,” Grimes said. “Some were on top of the snow.  There were two people who had their faces covered. The climbers who were free of the snow assissted them very quickly, uncovered their faces within the first about 20 or 30 seconds.”Grimes says no one was seriously injured, but the climb was abandoned, and the group returned to Fairbanks. UAF Director of adventure, recreation and wellness programs Mark Oldmixon says group instructors snow conditions that appeared to be initially OK.”They didn’t find any red flags: natural avalanches or shooting cracks,” said Oldmixon.An Alaska Alpine Club trip to the same area was cancelled. Volunteer leader Kellie O’Brien says she didn’t feel comfortable with conditions, given recent weather.”Reviewing history of the weather in Alaska and knowing that we’ve had strange snow, and that it’s been inconsolidated,” O’Brien said. “And then to have the temperature so warm followed up by that fresh snow fall that passed through, I just have this sixth sense that it just was not stable conditions.”O’Brien refers to a forecast posted earlier in the week to the Eastern Alaska Range Avalanche Center website, warning of instability. Oldmixon, who’s actively involved in the online center, maintains the forecast was stale.”It shouldn’t be something we necessarily use as a go-no go five days later,” said Oldmixon. “So we felt comfortable still sending the trip.”Alaska Avalanche Information Center education coordinator Sarah Carter was in the area teaching course the prior weekend, and some of her students posted the forecast. Carter agrees conditions shift quickly, and are localized, but cautions that the eastern Alaska Range snowpack has become generally less stable in recent years due to warmer weather.”With the warmer systems moving through, there are multiple layers of stronger snow with facets between those layers.” Carter said.Carter notes basic techniques, like only exposing one group member at a time to a slope to reduce risk, but she insists on not laying blame relative to the UAF avalanche incident.“There is an element of luck in the mountains,” said Carter.UAF’s Oldmixon says his initial takeaway from the weekend accident is that the class fell victim to rapidly changing conditions, common in the mountains.“My initial instinct is we didn’t do anything wrong,” Oldmixon said. “These accidents will occur and in this one there could have been 13 deaths.”Jeff Benowitz is an experienced local alpinist and longtime UAF climbing gym instructor.“The University of Alaska should not be in the mountain guide business,” said Benowitz. “We should offer mountaineering skill classes and we can do that on campus, and we do it very well.The University’s Oldmixon says the avalanche incident will undergo thorough review and could result in program changes, but the initial priority is helping those involved recover from the slidelast_img read more

Stone Cold speaks out 3 unheard iconic stories Steve Austin revealed in

first_imgAny discussion around WWE is incomplete without a mention of the iconic Stone Cold Steve Austin and his journey and career, in and out of the ring. The rivalry between Vince McMahon and Austin is perhaps widely regarded by fans as possibly the greatest of all time.He made his way to the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009 and was recently seen on the Raw Reunion episode where the show ended with him drinking beer with a host of WWE legends as well as Hall of Famers. Making an appearance on Hot Ones in one of the recent episodes, he shared a number of interesting stories from the past while he was having a great time gorging on chicken wings. We have collated a number of such stories which Austin shared during the conversation. The beer celebration in Japan Stone Cold Steve AustinTwitterWell, his beer celebrations have been iconic right through his career and during this chat, he revealed that he spilled a lot of beer so that he did not get wasted at the end of the bash. One of the iconic moments which immediately comes to mind is the time when he came out to the ring in a beer truck and then gave the Authority (Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, and The Rock) a beer bath in what can be safely dubbed as one of the historic images of Monday Night Raw.The tussle and confrontation with Mike TysonIt has to be mentioned here that one of the biggest reasons why WWE was able to trump WCW was the fact that they were able to get Mike Tyson for WrestleMania 14. Having said this, Tyson and Austin had a confrontation on an episode of Raw, and then followed it once again on road to WrestleMania. This segment concluded when Tyson shoved Austin and total chaos followed soon after. Brawl in a supermarket Stone Cold Steve AustinFacebookAustin gave plenty of iconic moments in his career, but when he took on Booker T inside a supermarket, it was one of the greatest SmackDown moments of all time. This brawl kicked off when Booker T attacked someone he thought was Austin. However, he was mistaken and soon after, Austin emerged from behind to crack open a beer can. What follows is a comedy of errors and Austin scampers out of the scene as police sirens start blaring in the distance.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

switzerlandSwitzerland Tourism

first_imgswitzerlandSwitzerland Tourism When you think of Switzerland, images of amazing alpine peaks for a snow and skiing holiday come to mind. However, there is much more to winter in Switzerland than just a ski and snow holiday.With winter in Europe just around the corner, now is the time to start planning that European getaway. The pioneer of winter tourism, Switzerland has all sorts of winter activities for non-skiers.So if you have clients that don’t ski, but still want to enjoy the winter wonderland of Switzerland, here are even experiences travellers should consider during their visit over the colder months.Christmas MarketsFrom Zurich (home to Europe’s largest indoor Christmas market), to Basel (where fairy-tale dollars are used as legal tender in the markets), and Montreux (the gateway to Santa Claus’ Swiss abode atop Rochers-de-Naye), these seasonal markets never fail to impress. The intoxicating atmosphere and magical setting along with live entertainment, traditional food, art and craft, beverages and cheer create an incredibly nostalgic experience.Stay in an IglooFor a stay with a difference, visitors can experience life in an igloo – either by building it themselves or checking in to one that’s already built. The Swiss igloo experience usually comes with a range of activities including cheese fondue and gluhwein nights, snowshoe hiking and even spa time under the stars!Dog SleddingDog sledding is a relaxing way to enjoy sliding across the snow with no balancing act involved, while taking in the spectacular alpine scenery. In Appenzell (east of Zurich), snow lovers can even earn to handle the team of sled dogs themselves and tour at their preferred pace!Toboggan RidesFor a bit or a lot more speed, adrenaline seekers can even learn to handcraft their very own “Rolls Royce” toboggan before rocketing down the slopes like they would in a go-cart race! One place where toboggans take over in winter is Col de la Croix, which connects Les Diablerets and Villars in the Vaud region. With the snow-covered paths, cyclists and motorists are forced to take a winter break and this is when the real fun begins!Elite Sports EventsThere are sports events and there are elite sports events that are popular among the well-heeled polite society. These include Snow Polo, White Turf (horseracing) and Cricket on Ice which take place every January and February respectively on the frozen lake in the winter resort of St Moritz. Established in 1985, the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz is the only high goal polo tournament played on snow; while White Turf has a history dating back to 1907. Cricket on Ice will be in its 32nd year in 2019. All three events not only see the gathering of sports lovers, but also a string of rich, royal and famous personalities.Panoramic Rail JourneysJourneying through the unmistakable Swiss scenery by train is an absolute must! And while the lush verdant meadows and fairytale-like villages are some definite highlights no visitor should miss, so is the equally captivating snow-capped landscape. The Glacier Express (from Zermatt to St Moritz) and Bernina Express (from Chur to Tirano) and the GoldenPass Line (from Interlaken to Montreux) are three panoramic rail journeys that take their passengers through some of the country’s most spectacular snowscapes.Traditional Alpine ChaletsNo Swiss winter experience is complete without experiencing the comforts and surrounds of a traditional Swiss alpine chalet. With many cosy winter hideaways on offer, guests are spoiled for choice with a number of ski-in ski-out, ski-in spa-out and cross-country hotels. It all depends on the location and type of snowcation planned!last_img read more

US warship leaves from Larnaca sparking rumours Updated

first_imgSpeculation was rife in the media about the deployment of the US Navy Destroyer USS Donald Cook in possible military operations against Syria, a day after the ship departed from the port of Larnaca.According to US 6th fleet’s website, the USS Donald Cook – which is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles – left Larnaca on Monday after completing a scheduled port visit.“The visit served to enhance US-Cyprus relations as the two nations work together to strengthen regional security and stability. The ship’s presence in the Mediterranean is a demonstration of our continued commitment to regional security,” the website said.“These types of visits help build long lasting relationships, which are crucial to our mission,” said the warship’s Command Master Chief Jeremy Douglas.He added: “Strengthening partnerships during the port visit to Larnaca builds enduring relationships and emphasizes our shared commitment to promoting security and stability within the region, while seeking opportunities to enhance our interoperability as UN members.”The website said the US 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied and interagency partners, in order to advance U.S. national interests and security and stability in Europe and Africa.Although the USS Donald Cook is on routine operations in the eastern Mediterranean, foreign media speculated that the ship might be deployed in strikes against the Syrian government as a response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma, the last town held by ‘insurgents’ in the Eastern Ghouta region.The last remaining pocket in Douma is held by the Western-sponsored Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) faction.Citing a Navy source, the Washington Examiner said “the US has a number of ships armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles in the region, including the USS Donald Cook, a guided-missile destroyer that has just completed a port call in Cyprus, and got underway in the eastern Mediterranean within range of Syria Monday.”The Wall Street Journal, citing sources at the US Pentagon, said a second US Navy destroyer could be entering the Mediterranean over the next few days.“The US already has one guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, in the eastern Mediterranean, where it could take part in any strike on Syria, according to US defence officials. A second, the USS Porter could get there in a few days,” the newspaper wrote.Other reports on Tuesday said the USS Donald Cook had sailed within 100km of Tartus, the Russian naval base in Syria.Turkish daily Hurriyet said that Russian warplanes had allegedly buzzed the USS Donald Cook at least four times, but the report was later denied by the Pentagon.Earlier, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters he was not ruling out “anything right now,” when asked about the possible US response.“The first thing we have to look at is, why are chemical weapons still being used at all when Russia was the framework guarantor of removing all the chemical weapons?” Mattis said.Syria and Russia have denied the allegations that chemical weapons were used by the Assad government.Russia’s foreign ministry has issued an explicit warning to Washington that any “military intervention” in Syria would be “unacceptable” and would lead to the “most serious consequences.”You May LikeAirBoltThis Smart Travel Device Will Bring You Peace-of-mindAirBoltUndoGrand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos7 Things You Can Do At Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos (And Nowhere Else)Grand Fiesta Americana Los CabosUndoAmazing pagesThe best classic carsAmazing pagesUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoMayors lobbying president to prevent local govt mergersUndoFour dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Public has shown touching response to Gesy says minister

first_imgHealth Minister Constantinos Ioannou on Tuesday called the mass registration of the public for Gesy a “touching response” to what he described as “the greatest social project of at least the last five years.”Presenting the work of the health ministry for March-April, Ioannou said that by late afternoon on Monday, over 220,000 people had registered for Gesy “refuting the claims of all those who in recent months expected that Gesy would launch unsuccessfully.”Regarding the registration of under-18s, whose registration process began on Monday afternoon, Ioannou said that by Tuesday morning around 25,000 had registered and chosen a paediatrician from the 65 who have so far offered their services to Gesy.Though reports on Monday claimed that available paediatricians in Gesy numbered 70, concerns were already being raised over whether the number was sufficient, as the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) claimed that a total of 90 paediatricians would be needed to guarantee quality healthcare for children within Gesy.Earlier in the year, the HIO had said that 130 paediatricians would be needed to ensure a smooth start to healthcare reform.Ioannou denied that the number of paediatricians is insufficient, and asserted that the number is expected to rise by the time that the first phase of Gesy is set to launch with outpatient care, on June 1.There are 323 GPs so far within Gesy, Ioannou noted, while 124 pharmacies, 200 pharmacists and 57 clinical laboratories have applied to join, whose applications are being studied by the HIO.Two private radiology centres have also announced their intention to offer services to Gesy, Ioannou added.Currently, Ioannou said, the dialogue is intensifying with private hospitals in view of the second phase of Gesy which is set to begin in March 2020, and which will include in-patient care, as the government and HIO are now guided by a different strategy so that agreements can be reached in the coming months.So far, a number of private hospitals, clinics and polyclinics in the Nicosia, Limassol and Paphos districts have said they intend to participate in the national health scheme (Gesy), though the Larnaca and Famagusta districts remain a source of concern.Also intensifying are the efforts by the state health services organisation (Okypy) towards the administrative and financial autonomisation of public hospitals, as well as towards the preparation of the public sector for the new environment that will be brought about with the implementation of Gesy, Ioannou said.The main focus of efforts in view of the implementation of Gesy has turned towards ensuring the effectiveness of healthcare reform. Ioannou announced the opening of hundreds of job vacancies, while a subsidy scheme is also being drafted for the purchase of medical equipment from private hospitals.You May LikeDirectExposeWorld’s First Surviving Octuplets Are All Grown Up.
