INX Media case HC allows CBI to submit additional documents in Chidambarams

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday allowed a plea by the CBI for taking on record additional submissions in the anticipatory bail plea of former Union minister P Chidambaram in connection with the INX media case. Justice Sunil Gaur took the submissions on record and again reserved the order on the anticipatory bail of the senior Congress leader. The court had earlier on January 25 reserved its order on Chidambaram’s anticipatory bail plea in the cases lodged by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

In the INX Media case, the CBI had registered an FIR on May 15, 2017 alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to the media group for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 during Chidambaram’s tenure as finance minister in the UPA I government. The ED lodged a money laundering case in this regard last year. In its application filed through central government standing counsel Ripu Daman Bhardwaj, the CBI said it wanted to file additional submission regarding ongoing investigation in larger interest of justice. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed Earlier, while opposing the anticipatory bail plea, the CBI and the ED had asserted that custodial interrogation of Chidambaram was required in the case as he was evasive during questioning. The high court had reserved its order and said that the interim protection from arrest granted to Chidambaram will continue till the decision is passed on his plea for anticipatory bail. It had on July 25, 2018 granted interim protection from arrest to Chidambaram in both the cases and it was extended from time to time. The senior Congress leader’s role had come under the scanner of various investigating agencies in the Rs 3,500-crore Aircel-Maxis deal and the INX Media case involving Rs 305 crore. It was during his tenure as finance minister that clearances from the FIPB were given to the two ventures. A trial court here had also on May 30, 2018 directed the ED not to take coercive action against Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case. He was also granted protection from arrest in the Aircel-Maxis case, in which he and his son Karti have been named in the charge sheet filed by the CBI. The interim protection has been extended from time to time. Chidambaram’s petition had said that though no summons had ever been served on him by the ED in this case, he had an apprehension of arrest in view of the summons issued to him by the CBI, which was investigating the scheduled offence.last_img read more

Army to increase deployment for UN peacekeeping operations

“The Sri Lanka Army has a history of its overseas troop deployment since 1960’s even before I was born. To our credit more than 17000 Army peacekeepers, about 300 Military Observers and Staff Officers have to-date served foreign UN assignments world-wide with the purpose of restoring global peace. In the future we would definitely be able to multiply our numbers in overseas assignments including Mali. I expect all of you proceeding to Mali in a couple of days would serve as a fully-pledged professional Army maintaining strict discipline and dignity of the organization,” the Commander was quoted by the Army media unit as telling his troops. “This international involvement is also an endorsement that recognizes our professionalism at international level. Note that we are a different breed of soldiers who can be identified as a special community called ‘Rata Rakina Jathiya’ (RRJ), a new concept defined by me irrespective of ethnic differences,” he added. (Colombo Gazette) The Army is to increase troop deployment for UN peacekeeping operations, Army Commander Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake said.He said that Sri Lanka wants to increase the numbers in Mali to be equal to a Brigade in future and show the world that the Sri Lanka Army, like any other Army in the world, has the full potential of undertaking any responsibility at international level. The Commander said that the assignment in Mali is not for any personal gains but for the best interest of the country. read more

EthiopiaEritrea Annan OAU chief stress need to implement boundary decisions

“We salute the parties’ continued and consistent reaffirmation that they will accept the decision of the Boundary Commission as ‘final and binding’ as called for in the Algiers Peace Agreement” signed by Ethiopia and Eritrea in December 2000, UN chief Kofi Annan and OAU head Amara Essy wrote in an op-ed article published on Wednesday in the Canadian daily, The Globe and Mail. “We take this as a clear manifestation of their desire for a final settlement and yearning for lasting peace.”At the same time, the two leaders noted that the Boundary Commission’s decision would mark only one step on the road to resolving the conflict. After the delimitation process – essentially a line on a map – the process of physically demarcating the border must be carried out. “In the event that delimitation results in the transfer of territory, it is our fervent hope that any movement of population and civil administration will be carried out in an orderly and peaceful fashion, assisted by and in cooperation with UNMEE [UN Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea].”The UN and OAU leaders also underscored the need for international assistance in support of the efforts by Ethiopia and Eritrea to overcome their humanitarian difficulties. “We appeal to donor countries to extend maximum political and financial support to the two countries in their efforts towards socio-economic reconstruction and development.” The article stressed that a lasting resolution between Ethiopia and Eritrea would have benefits beyond the territory of the two Horn of Africa States. “The successful conclusion of the peace process on the basis of a legal settlement of the conflict will set an example for the rest of the African continent, and indeed the whole international community,” they wrote. read more

Farmers in row with ASA after milk advert claiming dairy farms are

first_imgFarmers have hit out at a ruling by the advertising watchdog that organic dairy farming is not “good for the land”. The Advertising Standards Authority banned an Arla advert for organic milk, saying it was “misleading”. The watchdog upheld a reader’s complaint that the ad, which also claimed the milk was “helping support a more sustainable future”, was misleading on the grounds that dairy farming was not good for the land.But Michael Oakes, NFU Dairy Board chairman, said the ruling was “disappointing”. “It’s been a long-held belief that that organic farming does hold benefits,” he said. “We are frustrated with how the ASA works, and we’d be really interested to learn how they reach these decisions.”Arla Foods, which is home to brands including Anchor and Cravendale, said one of the key principles of organic farming was good treatment of the land and that sustainability was at the heart of organic farming.The impact on the environment was considered in every step of the production process, the firm added.However, the ASA said consumers would interpret the “good for the land” claim to mean that production of the milk would have an overall positive impact on the environment, taking into account its full life cycle.The ASA said: “We acknowledged that Arla had provided evidence regarding the organic farming methods used and that they believed this was more sustainable than non-organic farming.”However, we did not consider they had substantiated that organic milk production had an overall positive impact on the environment, taking into account its full life cycle.”We therefore concluded that the claim was misleading.”It ruled that the ad must not appear again in its current form, adding: “We told Arla Foods to ensure that in future they did not make environmental claim about their products unless they held sufficient substantiation.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Operators of Orinduik oil block say it could contain in excess

Eco Atlantic and its operating partner, Tullow Oil have revealed that the Orinduik Block offshore Guyana could potentially contain in excess of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent.Eco Atlantic (Guyana) Inc, a subsidiary of Eco Atlantic, holds a 40 per cent Working Interest in Orinduik, and Tullow, the Operator, holds the remaining 60 per cent.The Orinduik Block is located up dip and just a few kilometers from Exxon’s recent Liza and Payara discoveries confirming, by Exxon’s estimates, in excess of 1.5 billion barrels of recoverable oil.The companies said in a release on Wednesday that leads are up dip from the Liza discoveries located on the Stabroek Block and are currently being evaluated and matured to prospect status on recently acquired 3D survey data.It said Gustavson Associates of Colorado has been contracted to provide independent interpretation services. And Total is now interpreting the first batch of the 3D survey data from the Orinduik Block, completed last year.Director and Chief Operating Officer of Eco Atlantic, Colin Kinley, said it is an exciting time for Eco, and the company is being careful to ensure a comprehensive and conservative interpretation of the Orinduik data as it is being delivered.He said he “was delighted that we were able to secure Gustavson as an independent team to work with us on Guyana. Gustavson have extensive expertise and knowledge of the region and will provide a CPR and NI-51-101 on the block as the interpretation matures. Drilling is expected to commence in late 2018 or early 2019 and the potential scale of this resource requires a detailed strategy and confident interpretation.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedGuyana gets 1% royalty, 53% profit sharing in 2016 oil contract with Tullow/ Eco AtlanticMarch 17, 2018In “Business”Eco Atlantic, Tullow Oil entering Phase Two on Orinduik BlockJanuary 18, 2018In “Business”Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas, Tullow Oil to conduct 3D seismic survey at their Orinduik BlockJune 8, 2017In “Business” read more

Un réacteur capable de produire du carburant à partir de la lumière

first_imgUn réacteur capable de produire du carburant à partir de la lumière solaireUne équipe de chercheurs américains a développé un réacteur capable de produire du carburant grâce à la lumière solaire. Le processus mis au point, proche de celui utilisé lors de la croissance des plantes, nécessite du dioxyde de carbone, de l’eau et un composé baptisé oxyde cérique.Ce processus est analogue à celui permet aux plantes de pousser, en utilisant l’énergie solaire pour convertir le dioxyde de carbone en polymères de sucre et en arômes, indique Ces éléments peuvent perdre leur oxygène, après des milliers d’années de dégradation souterraine qui les transforment en carburants fossiles, ou au cours de processus de dissolution, fermentation ou hydrogénation plus rapides. Des processus utilisés pour la production de carburants biologiques.À lire aussiConsommer toutes les énergies fossiles de la planète ferait disparaitre l’AntarctiqueLes chercheurs ont travaillé sur d’autres méthodes permettant d’utiliser la lumière solaire pour convertir le dioxyde de carbone en hydrocarbure, et ce, en évitant les étapes intermédiaires de croissance végétale et de dégradation. Ainsi, une équipe de scientifiques du California Institute of Technology à Pasadena, en Californie, menée par William Chueh, a mis au point un réacteur dans lequel les rayons lumineux concentrés font chauffer de l’oxyde cérique, un composé provenant du métal rare cérium, à une température permettant de libérer certains oxygènes. La matière compense alors cette perte en puisant des atomes d’oxygène dans l’eau ou le dioxyde de carbone, produisant ainsi de l’hydrogène ou du monoxyde de carbone, qui combinés avec d’autres catalyseurs, forment des carburants.La lumière solaire concentrée pénètre dans le réacteur grâce une étroite fenêtre vitrée. Elle est alors réfléchie plusieurs fois à l’intérieur du réacteur, ce qui assure la récupération d’un maximum d’énergie solaire. Des morceaux cylindriques d’oxyde cérique placés à l’intérieur de cette cavité sont soumis à des centaines de cycles chaleur/refroidissement, qui mènent à la production de carburant.  Le 2 janvier 2011 à 16:38 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Schizophrénie un nouvel éclairage sur cette maladie mentale

first_imgSchizophrénie : un nouvel éclairage sur cette maladie mentaleDeux nouvelles études permettent de mieux comprendre les mécanismes de la schizophrénie. La première révèle l’existence de 13 gènes à risque tandis que la seconde pointe les dommages qu’elle peut causer sur le cerveau.La schizophrénie est une maladie mentale qui touche près de 25 millions de personnes dans le monde. Des traitements existent, mais l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) estime que près de 50% des malades ne sont pas pris en charge, essentiellement dans les pays en voie de développement. C’est pourtant quand elle est traitée très tôt que la maladie peut reculer. Deux nouvelles études viennent de paraître et éclairent sous un nouveau jour cette maladie : dans la première, des chercheurs sont parvenus à identifier 13 gènes impliqués dans le déclenchement de la schizophrénie. La seconde met elle, en lumière les dommages qu’elle provoque sur les tissus cérébraux.Une difficulté à interpréter le réelLa schizophrénie touche environ 7 adultes pour 1.000, et se déclenche généralement entre 15 et 35 ans. Elle est caractérisée par une difficulté à interpréter le réel, qui peut déboucher sur des délires paranoïdes. Dans 20 à 30% des cas, elle peut déclencher des hallucinations auditives et visuelles. Elle ne doit pour autant pas être confondue avec les phénomènes de personnalités multiples (qui portent le nom de troubles dissociatifs de l’identité), amalgame souvent commis au cinéma et dans la littérature.Les traitements qui existent sont à base de médicaments neuroleptiques (qui agissent sur les récepteurs à dopamine dans le cerveau), et sont couplés à une psychothérapie, voire dans les cas les plus graves à un internement. Mais plus la schizophrénie est traitée tôt, plus les chances de guérison sont grandes.Une maladie à composante génétique Aujourd’hui, les chercheurs savent que la schizophrénie possède une forte composante génétique, mais le détail des gènes spécifiquement impliqués ainsi que les mécanismes de leur régulation sont encore mal connus. Une équipe de 175 scientifiques internationaux, provenant de 20 pays (dont les Etats-Unis, l’Australie et plusieurs pays européens), vient de publier dans la revue Nature Genetics une étude décrivant 13 gènes à risque dont les mutations peuvent déclencher la maladie. “Jusqu’à présent, les résultats des études génétiques ne pouvaient expliquer qu’une fraction de l’héritabilité de la maladie et de son “architecture génétique”” explique le professeur Assen Jablensky, de l’hôpital Graylands en Australie. Aussi, la découverte de ces nouveaux gènes pourraient permettre de comprendre davantage encore les mécanismes impliqués dans cette maladie mentale. Dans ce but, les chercheurs australiens ont d’ores et déjà prévu de tester plusieurs hypothèses neurobiologiques afin peut-être de trouver de nouvelles pistes de traitements.Les tissus cérébraux affectésUne autre étude menée par des psychiatres de l’Université de l’Iowa et publiée dans le American Journal of Psychiatry, s’est elle penchée sur les dommages provoqués par la maladie au niveau des tissus cérébraux. En faisant passer des IRM à plus de 200 patients schizophrènes sur une période de 15 ans, l’équipe a pu identifier à quel point la maladie peut endommager le cerveau des malades.”Il y a plusieurs études, celle-ci comprise, qui montrent que les schizophrènes ont un crâne plus petit que la moyenne” explique Nancy Andreasen, auteur de l’étude. “Puisque le développement crânien se déroule durant les premières années de la vie, il y a peut-être certains aspects du développement, comme les complications durant la grossesse ou l’exposition aux virus, qui peuvent affecter les schizophrènes”.En étudiant les dommages cérébraux, l’équipe a découvert que les plus grosses atteintes aux tissus cérébraux avaient lieu durant les deux premières années après le premier épisode. Toutefois, à la surprise des chercheurs, elles suivaient ensuite un plateau. Ce résultat pourrait ainsi aider les médecins à identifier la meilleure période pour traiter la maladie et limiter les dégâts sur le cerveau.Des traitements néfastes ?À lire aussiLe mariage aiderait à prévenir les risques de démence, mais pourquoi ?En réalisant leurs recherches, l’équipe a cependant fait une autre découverte inattendue : selon les résultats obtenus, les médicaments utilisés pour traiter la schizophrénie auraient eux-mêmes des effets néfastes sur les tissus cérébraux. “C’était une découverte très irritante” déclare le Dr. Andreasen. “Nous avons passé deux ans à vérifier les résultats, en espérant y trouver une erreur, mais ce n’était pas le cas. L’impact est très fort, car les psychiatres, les patients et leurs familles ne savent pas comment l’interpréter. Devrait-on arrêter les traitements anti-psychotiques ? Devrait-on les diminuer ?”, demande t-elle.A l’heure actuelle, les chercheurs restent prudents quant à indiquer si l’on doit revoir les politiques de traitement avec ces médicaments. Ils rappellent que c’est grâce à eux que des milliers de patients ne sont pas hospitalisés et peuvent se soigner à domicile, mais recommandent quand même aux médecins et psychiatres d’être conscients des problèmes cérébraux qu’ils peuvent engendrer.Le 13 septembre 2013 à 20:20 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

The Big Yellow School Bus is Going Green

first_img Automotive manufacturing giant Diamler proudly unveiled a new addition to its expansive roster this week. And while it’s not exactly Magic, there is something special about this particular school bus. It’s electrified.Daimler subsidiary Thomas Built Buses calls their slick new ride Jouley (see what they did there?). It’s got room for 85 passengers and a battery pack with enough capacity to to drive 100 miles on a single charge. Thomas offers expansion packs, too, in case schools want Jouley to tackle longer routes.There’s even a power saving mode that can let a driver squeeze out a little extra distance in case a trip ends up covering a little more ground than expected.As you might expect, acceleration isn’t exactly Jouley’s thing. The bus posts a zero to 60 time of around 45 seconds, which is about twice what one of its diesel-chugging counterparts can do. Still, for routes in more densely-populated areas Jouley’s lack of get-up-and-go isn’t a deal breaker.Like other EVs, Jouley creates no harmful emissions and offers greatly reduced maintenance costs. One other advantage that Thomas thinks is pretty important is the lack of that that unmistakable school bus rumble. Reduced noise under the hood should make it easier for the driver to focus on the road and riders.Thomas has taken a page from the Tesla playbook, too. Jouley can receive over-the-air software updates and can also transmit location information and data about vehicle systems in real time, which helps simplify the task of managing and servicing a fleet.One other cool trick Jouley has up its sleeve: the power stored in its 100 to 160kWh batteries can be shared. In an emergency situation, schools could use their buses to provide backup power and keep vital systems running. It could supply juice for some pretty cool off-grid field trips, too.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 14 Recap Twin Peaks Without Metaphor

first_img ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Trailer Toasts to a Mysterious Senior YearSDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4 Stay on target Riverdale was a tough watch this week. Though this episode was filmed long before Luke Perry’s death, every scene with Fred Andrews in it reminds us that he’s not here anymore. In the wake of his death, those who worked with him, both on Riverdale and Beverly Hills 90210, talked about what a giving actor he was. We heard about him being a mentor on the set of Riverdale. That was absolutely clear on camera. The humanity and empathy with which he played the role grounded all the insanity happening around him. He didn’t have the biggest role on this show, but it was a crucial one. We’re all going to miss him a lot.As for this episode, that insanity is starting to spin up once more. We’ve enjoyed a few episodes of Riverdale getting back to its twisted teen soap roots. Now, it’s time to get the Farm cult and G&G back in the mix. The latter is introduced back into the story when Archie finds a young boy hiding out in the boxing gym. The owner is letting him do some work around the place in lieu of membership dues. While sweeping up, he finds Ricky, a boy who says he’s being hunted by the Gargoyles. He has the same sacrifice mark on his arm that the warden gave to Archie in juvie.Ashleigh Murray as Josie and KJ Apa as Archie — Photo: Diyah Pera/The CWSeeing an opportunity to help someone in a similar situation, Archie takes the kid into his home. While trying to find him a good family, he starts teaching Ricky how to box so he can defend himself. Archie is actually good at playing big brother. This is the most competent we’ve seen him at anything… probably ever. Archie’s protective instincts only grow when Ricky disappears, seemingly having been chased off by gargoyles. Archie and Jughead find him hiding out in the Gargoyles’ hideout after they’ve cleared out. There, he sees both his own name, and “Ricky Dee” on the list of sacrifices. He gets Ricky out of there, and everything seems like it’s going to be OK. Until he gets a call from the social worker who’s been trying to find Ricky a safe home. It turns out “Ricky Dee” is actually Ricardo DeSantos, Joaquin’s brother. He’s just as mixed up with the Gargoyles as his brother was. It turns out Ricardo has a history of violence and self harm.That’s when Riverdale decides to flex its horror movie muscles. Damn, is the show good at that. Archie returns from the phone call to find Ricky gone. The tension builds as he searches the dark house. All that was missing was a shadow moving across the camera or something. Ricky ends up behind Archie holding a knife. The only way the Gargoyles will let him play, he says, is if he kills Archie, the Red Paladin. No matter what, Archie can’t escape this weird tabletop RPG gang that wants to kill him. Ricky slashes up Archie’s chest pretty good before Fred arrives home and the kid runs off. We don’t get a sense of where this is all leading, but the story was thrilling enough that I don’t mind for now. At least the creepy Ghoulies den is going away. Jughead and the Serpents take it over, planning to give it a fresh coat of paint and make it the new HQ.Bernadette Beck as Peaches ‘N Cream, Camila Mendes as Veronica and Vanessa Morgan as Toni — Photo: Diyah Pera/The CWSpeaking of, the teen gang and business leaders are all beginning to lose control in this episode. The power struggle between Toni and Cheryl continues. The Pretty Poisons are ostensibly Toni’s gang, but Cheryl keeps using them as her own personal hit squad. When Toni says she doesn’t want to suspend her own girlfriend, Cheryl threatens to take away the use of her home as headquarters. Meanwhile, after Gladys pulled the Serpents out of speakeasy security duty, she’s started moving in on the place. Between that and Hiram Lodge using the speakeasy as his own client entertainment venue, Veronica starts to feel like she’s losing control of her own business. The solution? Hire the Pretty Poisons as security. She keeps out the problem elements (aka the adults in Riverdale), and Toni gets to make a decision about her own gang without Cheryl. You can bet Cheryl’s not too happy about that.Jughead, on the other hand, has a harder problem. After his mother forced the Gargoyles and Serpents to join together, there have been issues. The Gargoyles know they outnumber the Serpents. As far as their concerned, the Serpents are subservient to them. When they nearly kill Fangs for being Jughead’s spy, both he and FP know drastic action needs to be taken. For the survival of the Serpents, FP deputizes the gang. That’s what the new HQ is for. They’ll be the Sheriff’s eyes and ears on the street. It’s not great to see them turn into cops, but it looks like the only way to survive. As a bonus, it clears out any Gargoyle influence still lingering in the original Serpent crew. I don’t know what affect this new dynamic will have on the school, but it I know Riverdale, it’ll be the wildest outcome possible.Lili Reinhart as Betty — Photo: Diyah Pera/The CWThen there’s Betty, dealing with her mother’s and Kevin’s descent into cult life. Hers is still the story I’m most interested in, and we get a lot of it this episode. I was intrigued by the title of this week’s show. “Fire Walk With Me” is probably the most well-known, evocative phrase from Twin Peaks. It was the title of the semi-prequel movie David Lynch made. (Which is excellent, by the way. Anyone expecting clear answers from Lynch wasn’t paying attention.) Here, despite Riverdale’s history of dabbling in the surreal, it’s much more literal. Just like last episode, Betty tries to save Kevin from a dangerous initiation ritual. This time, it’s walking over fiery coals. Betty shows up too late to stop Kevin, and fortunately he makes it over without incident. The downside is what’s basically a parlor trick (seriously, once you look up how it’s done, its way less impressive) now has Kevin fully believing in the cult’s power. Enough for him to join Evelyn in threatening to reveal Betty’s secrets if she interferes again.Not that that stops her. She spent most of the episode discouraging any prospective buyer from purchasing her house. While Alice is showing a couple around, Betty pops up to inform them that her serial killer father murdered people there. It’s a hilarious opening scene, but it’s only a temporary solution. Eventually, an anonymous foreign buyer makes an offer. It turns out Betty has a solution for that too. While Jughead surveys his new headquarters, Betty smiles at him, saying she thinks everything’s going to be fine. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Dark Betty, but she was so wonderfully present in that smile. We don’t have to wait long to see exactly what she did either. Alice returns to the house to find it going up in flames. Dark Betty isn’t above a little arson, it seems.Even with the incredibly sad recent news, Riverdale spinning up again remains joyous to watch. It wears its inspirations on its sleeve and has unapologetic fun with them. It abandoned the concept of realism a long time ago and has never looked back. I wish more of the stories this week had given some indication of what we could expect, though. Just a little taste to make us excited for next week. As it is, we got a lot of enjoyable set up, but we aren’t quite sure for what. There are worse problems a show could have I guess. I do still love how cartoonishly evil they’ve made Hiram. You have a character just casually bragging about exploiting prison labor. God, so many of the adults on this show are eminently hateable and I love it.Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Previously on Riverdale:Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13 RecapRiverdale Season 3 Episode 12 RecapRiverdale Season 3 Episode 11 Recaplast_img read more

Inzaghi admits Napoli deserved win amid controversy

first_imgLazio boss Simone Inzaghi admits Napoli deserved their 2-1 victory but fumed at the sending off of Francesco Acerbi.Jose Callejon and Arkadiusz Milik put the host in the ascendancy before half-time before Ciro Immobile pulled one back for Inzaghi’s men.“Napoli played better than we did and certainly deserved to win, but having said that, on the first yellow card, Callejon was clever to get in front of Acerbi and then stop, ensuring the defender had to run into him,” the Coach told Football Italia.“As for the second booking, he clearly got the ball and it was not even a foul. I noticed that, I got angry, but these incidents do keep happening to us.”The Biancocelesti improved considerably when Joaquin Correa came off the bench.“Correa is a resource for us and he had started the last six games, missing the Coppa Italia because he had flu. Our first-half performance was bad, we were too passive, Napoli deservedly took the lead.“There were 25 minutes left when we got back into the game, with XI against XI who knows how it would’ve ended?

This evening, I didn’t agree with either of the two bookings for Acerbi.“As I said, Napoli didn’t steal anything, they deserved to win.

Better Homes and Gardens Goes Big With Pinterest

first_imgPinterest has become a significant new social platform for magazines, particularly in the women’s market. Meredith’s Better Homes and Gardens has built a heavy presence on the site with almost 60 different boards aligned with the brand’s various editorial categories in home and garden design. The magazine just launched a contest, called “Pin & Win” to drive further engagement with users.To participate in the contest, users have to curate their own pinboard named “My Better Homes and Gardens Dream Home.” Participants use images collected from the magazine’s website,, and have to use at least 10 pictures. “As a visual brand where imagery and ideas are so central to what we do we are extremely excited about Pinterest. This is a tremendous complement,” says Gayle Butler, Meredith National Media Group EVP and Better Homes and Gardens editor-in-chief. The contest launched on Wednesday, March 7 and there have been 490 entries so far, says Butler, who adds that one entrant has 40 repins off of her board, which illustrates the sharing power of the platform. The contest, as well as BHG’s Pinterest presence in general, is promoted across the other social platforms and in the magazine. BHG’s Facebook page features a tab dedicated to the contest’s entry process. Winners get a cash prize.So far, Butler says BHG’s boards, which are dedicated to topics such as “Livable Living Rooms” and “Fun Front Doors,” have about 25,000 followers with more than 2 million total board followers. Butler adds that the visual nature of brands like Better Homes and Gardens is uniquely suited to Pinterest. And aside from the benefits of spreading content further afield to potentially new consumers, the user-curated boards give BHG unique insight into their interests. “Consumers invite you in to their interests, and to me that is really exciting and it creates a new interaction with the consumer and we can see what excites the them as well,” she says. Further, Meredith’s research has shown that across the company’s digital brands, particularly the tablet products, 40 to 50 percent of users are new to the brand and the company. So by aggressively participating in new digital platforms like Pinterest, the company is reaching out to a potentially new universe of customers.last_img read more

Sports Illustrated Relaunches Mobile Site

first_imgSEE ALSO: Matt Bean, a 2012 FOLIO: 40 Scores, he says, are a way to do that. The Gameflash technology used to give real-time scoring updates is almost identical to the desktop version, but is now accessible in a way that uniquely complements the mobile experience. Similarly, reader comments are now integrated into the device platform, offering users a chance to reengage with a story more easily.Overall, the percentage of content accessible across platforms is high, Bean emphasizes, saying that “almost everything” available on the fixed site can now be viewed on a smartphone or tablet.The app is not yet part of the new immersive environment Bean and vice president and general manager Jim DeLorenzo are trying to create, although he expects it will be by the end of the year. “It’s really going to end up being one in the same,” DeLorenzo says. “We’re going to use the HTML5 base that we’ve created with the mobile site and then use that for a native app as well. That’s one of the reasons why when you look at the new mobile website, it has very much of an app feel to it.”Neither would comment specifically on future updates to the desktop site that would bring it closer to the mobile version in appearance, but DeLorenzo did say his group was “actively looking” at a redesign.To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter! Time Inc.’s Sports Illustrated has relaunched its mobile site, emphasizing consistency in content across each of its platforms.While the new mobile site, built on a WordPress platform and written in responsive HTML5 coding, has a darker, sharper user-interface than the desktop version-a much different look and feel-the content is more closely aligned. “The way we’ve approached this mobile site is indicative of what we’ll be doing here at Sports Illustrated going forward, really looking to bring out a product that allows us to be nimble and flexible,” says Matt Bean, the managing editor of who recently came over from Rodale. “We want our brand to be represented across all platforms, but there are different use cases reflected in mobile that might not be the case for someone on a desktop computer.

But regulators say those spills can be hard to track during a flood.At a state house hearing Wednesday, Texas Railroad Commission spokesperson Richard Parsons said regulators received more than 30 reports of spills after the storm and performed between 300 and 350 oil and gas site inspections. That all led to 12 citations.Lawmakers were gathered in part to look at whether state rules do enough to protect the industry and the environment from disasters. Though they didn’t ask many questions about that, Parsons offered some challenges. “In these flood situations, if there is pollution, it can wash away quickly,” he said, noting that it can take days or weeks to reach a potential spill. “So by the time we can get there, an operator can get there, there may be little to no pollution left.”Parsons said the commission is looking for ways to help energy companies better prepare for flooding. That could include the commission working further with the Center for Space Research at the University of Texas to share data with companies ahead of a storm about where flooding is expected to happen.

One Step Closer to Northwood Commons

first_imgBy Deborah Bailey, Special to the AFROSigns of new life are stirring at Havenwood Road in Northeast Baltimore week. Developers for  Northwood Commons, Morgan State University, and the local community celebrated the groundbreaking, Nov. 1, for the long-awaited Northwood Commons Project, in a high energy, white-tent ceremony at the shopping center this week.“This morning gives me a ray of hope,” said Paula Purviance, president of the Hillen Road Community Improvement Association to an excited audience of community members, students, university administrators and elected officials.Community members, elected officials, project developers and Morgan State University leaders at groundbreaking ceremony for Northwood Commons. (Photos Courtesy of Morgan State University)Purviance reflected on the many transitions the neighborhood experienced as the current shopping complex, bounded by the Hillen, Original Northwood and New Northwood neighborhoods continued to decline.  The Hillen Road Association was one of a cluster of stakeholders including Morgan State University, Baltimore City and the State of Maryland  who jointly conceptualized the Northwood Commons concept said Mark Renbaum, managing partner of MLR Partners.The $50 million redevelopment of the former Northwood Plaza Shopping Center will feature 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and an additional 20,000 square feet of office space. Morgan State has signed a lease for 11,000 square feet of space for shops including a Barnes and Noble College Bookstore. The University’s public safety department is also expected to move to the site.“Morgan State University is proud to serve as an anchor institution in the city of Baltimore and is strongly committed to the surrounding community.  Northwood Commons will expand upon that commitment, creating a vital retail center that fulfills a number of needs for the university and the residents of northeast Baltimore,” reflected Morgan State President David Wilson.The existing shopping center will be completely demolished within the next 18-24 months for the new development that will sit adjacent to Morgan’s Northwood Campus, home of the Earl. G. Graves School of Business and Martin D. Jenkins Behavioral and Social Sciences Center. The project is projected for completion in 2021.Baltimore native P. David Bramble, managing partner of MCB Real Estate will lead the redevelopment project in collaboration with  MLR Partners and the center’s owner, Northwood Shopping Center Partnership.  Bramble became emotional at the thought of leading work that will transform a community in his own backyard.“It’s only so often that you get to be part of an impactful project in your own hometown,” he said. “We want you to come back to this place in a couple of years and be amazed at what we’ve done,” Bramble added.As the ceremony ended and residents walked back to their homes, hope lingered in the atmosphere.“People were ready for a change.  I think having the vision of the president of Morgan, good council people and other elected officials who helped along the way helped us make the change,” said Cheryl Reese, long-time community resident and Morgan alumnae.“I remember the old neighborhood.  It’s been a long time. This change has been a long time coming,” said Michael Singleton, who has lived on Lock Raven street for more than 20 years. “This is going to transform the community in a positive direction,” Singleton said.last_img read more

May 21, 2012 — In 1848, Phineas Gage, the supervisor for the Rutland and Burlington Railroad in Vermont, was using a 13-pound, 3-foot-7-inch rod to pack blasting powder into a rock when he triggered an explosion that drove the rod through his left cheek and out of the top of his head. As reported at the time, the rod was later found “smeared with blood and brains.”Miraculously, Gage lived, becoming the most famous case in the history of neuroscience — not only because he survived a horrific accident that led to the destruction of much of his left frontal lobe, but also because of the injury’s reported effects on his personality and behavior, which were said to be profound. Gage went from being an affable 25-year-old to one that was fitful, irreverent and profane. His friends and acquaintances said he was “no longer Gage.”Over the years, various scientists have studied and argued about the exact location and degree of damage to Gage’s cerebral cortex and the impact it had on his personality. Now, for the first time, researchers at UCLA, using brain imaging data that was lost to science for a decade, have broadened the examination of Gage to look at the damage to the white matter “pathways” that connect various regions of the brain.Reporting in the May 16 issue of the journal PLoS ONE, Jack Van Horn, an assistant professor of neurology at UCLA, and his colleagues noted that while approximately 4 percent of the cerebral cortex was intersected by the rod’s passage, more than 10 percent of Gage’s total white matter was damaged. The passage of the tamping iron caused widespread damage to the white matter connections throughout Gage’s brain, which likely was a major contributor to the behavioral changes he experienced.Because white matter and its myelin sheath — the fatty coating around the nerve fibers that form the basic wiring of the brain — connect the billions of neurons that allow us to reason and remember, the research not only adds to the lore of Phineas Gage but may eventually lead to a better understanding of multiple brain disorders that are caused in part by similar damage to these connections.”What we found was a significant loss of white matter connecting the left frontal regions and the rest of the brain,” said Van Horn, who is a member of UCLA’s Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI). “We suggest that the disruption of the brain’s ‘network’ considerably compromised it. This may have had an even greater impact on Mr. Gage than the damage to the cortex alone in terms of his purported personality change.”LONI is part of an ambitious joint effort with Massachusetts General Hospital and the National Institutes of Health to document the trillions of microscopic links between every one of the brain’s 100 billion neurons — the so-called “connectome.” And because mapping the brain’s physical wiring eventually will lead to answers about what causes mental conditions that may be linked to the breakdown of these connections, it was appropriate, as well as historically interesting, to take a new look at the damage to Gage’s brain.Since Gage’s 189-year-old skull, which is on display in the Warren Anatomical Museum at Harvard Medical School, is now fragile and unlikely to again be subjected to medical imaging, the researchers had to track down the last known imaging data from 2001, which had been lost due to various circumstances at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard, for some 10 years.The authors were able to recover the computed tomographic data files and managed to reconstruct the scans, which revealed the highest-quality resolution available for modeling Gage’s skull. Next, they utilized advanced computational methods to model and determine the exact trajectory of the tamping iron that shot through his skull. Finally, because the original brain tissue was long gone, researchers used modern-day brain images of males that matched Gage’s age and right-handedness, then used software to position a composite of these 110 images into Gage’s virtual skull, the assumption being that Gage’s anatomy would have been similar.Van Horn found that nearly 11 percent of Gage’s white matter was damaged, along with 4 percent of the cortex.”Our work illustrates that while cortical damage was restricted to the left frontal lobe, the passage of the tamping iron resulted in the widespread interruption of white matter connectivity throughout his brain, so it likely was a major contributor to the behavioral changes he experienced,” Van Horn said. “Connections were lost between the left frontal, left temporal and right frontal cortices and the left limbic structures of the brain, which likely had considerable impact on his executive as well as his emotional functions.”And while Gage’s personality changed, he eventually was able to travel and find employment as a stagecoach driver for several years in South America. Ultimately, he died in San Francisco, 12 years after the accident.Van Horn noted a modern parallel.”The extensive loss of white matter connectivity, affecting both hemispheres, plus the direct damage by the rod, which was limited to the left cerebral hemisphere, is not unlike modern patients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury,” he said. “And it is analogous to certain forms of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or frontal temporal dementia, in which neural pathways in the frontal lobes are degraded, which is known to result in profound behavioral changes.”Van Horn noted that the quantification of the changes to Gage’s brain’s pathways might well provide important insights for clinical assessment and outcome monitoring in modern-day brain trauma patients.Other authors of the study were Andrei Irimia, Micah C. Chambers, Carinna M. Torgerson and Arthur W. Toga, all of UCLA, and Ron Kikinis of Harvard Medical School. The work was performed as part of the Human Connectome Project.
