UNESCO chief condemns killing of Chinese reporter beaten by police officer

Continuing his campaign to spotlight the deplorable killing of journalists worldwide, the Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today condemned the beating death of a Chinese reporter by a police officer.“I condemn the killing of Xiao Guopeng,” declared Koïchiro Matsuura in a statement released in Paris on the incident, which took place in the province of Guizhou on 18 July. Welcoming the fact that the alleged perpetrator has been arrested, he said: “I trust that there will be a transparent investigation and trial to help prevent the recurrence of such events in the future.”According to Reporters Without Borders, the officer Pan Dengfeng beat the 39-year old reporter outside the building of his newspaper, Anshun. The police officer is said to have continued hitting Mr. Xiao when he was already on the ground, despite protests from a crowd of onlookers. Mr. Xiao was finally rushed to hospital where he died of cerebral haemorrhaging, Reporters Without Borders said. He is the second journalist to die as a result of a police beating in China this year. read more

Higher prices from Fort McMurray wildfire to boost Q2 energy company results

by Dan Healing, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 20, 2016 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Jul 20, 2016 at 5:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email (Stock photo: FreeImages.com) CALGARY – Analysts predict oil prices driven higher by production stoppages during the Fort McMurray, Alta., wildfires in May will bolster the bottom lines of Canadian oil and gas companies as they report financial results starting this week.Western Canada Select, the benchmark price for blended oilsands bitumen, rose by 58 per cent in the three months ended June 30 to an average of Cdn$42.52 per barrel from $26.93 in the first quarter of the year, said analyst Nick Lupick of AltaCorp Capital.“Unfortunately, one of the contributing factors helping support Canadian crude prices in the quarter were the forest fires in Fort McMurray, which saw a total of 1.5 million barrels per day of bitumen and SCO (synthetic crude oil) production offline at its peak in mid-May,” he said on Tuesday.He previously estimated that a total of about 28 million barrels worth $1.6 billion of oilsands production had been lost because of the fire.Reporting season for major Canadian oil and gas producers starts Thursday with Encana (TSX:ECA), a company whose production was unaffected by the fire. A CIBC report estimates that Encana’s quarter-over-quarter cash flow — the difference between available cash at the start of the quarter versus the end — could rise 65 per cent due to the higher prices.On Friday, Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) is scheduled to report results that will reflect a decline in oilsands production at its Sunrise project in northern Alberta from 27,200 barrels per day in April to 4,300 bpd in May, according to statistics provided by analysts. The project was suspended for part of the month due to employee evacuations and pipeline shutdowns, although it sustained no physical damage.Despite the lower production, Husky is expected to post a nine per cent increase in cash flow due to higher oil prices and better refinery profit margins, according to a report from RBC.Alberta drivers unintentionally relieved some of the pain of lost production for oilsands producers Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) and Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO), Lupick said.Gasoline shortages in early June caused by a mechanical outage at Suncor’s Edmonton refinery, combined with a maintenance shutdown at Imperial Oil’s nearby refinery, led to some service stations running out of fuel, driving up both prices at the pump and downstream profit margins for the refinery owners.Suncor is expected to report July 27 and Imperial on July 29.A recent report from CIBC analyst Arthur Grayfer based on internal industry statistics showed that output from thermal oilsands projects — those that use steam to produce bitumen from wells — fell to about 900,000 bpd in May from about 1.2 million bpd in April. The biggest drop was at Suncor’s Firebag project, which went from 201,000 bpd in April to about 30,000 bpd in May.Similar statistics for oilsands mines are to be available next month, analysts said.———Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.

FEATURE In report to UN record number of women winning seats in

‹ › As a region, the Americas – Latin America that is – recorded the highest electoral gain with women in Educador, Grenada and Argentina occupying more than 30 percent in those three countries – a percentage considered a critical mass to effect change. Thirty-nine countries have reached the “above-30 percent” club. Newcomers to this “30 per cent club” include Austria, Cameroon, Grenada and Zimbabwe (both houses).But at the same time, a new growing concern has emerged regarding the rise in violence against women candidates running for political office.“We know more about what is going on around elections. Thanks to social media, we know about negative elections, also more about violence, threats of violence, against women candidates,” Johnsson told reporters at the report’s launch on Tuesday. “There are worrying reports we need to address.”Despite the barriers, 2013 broke all records for women’s participation in Parliaments worldwide.The Americas topped the chart in 2013. One out of every 4 MPs is a woman in Latin America.However, the United States and Canada are not doing as well. The United States ranked 83rd out of the 189 countries surveyed as of January 1, 2014 and Canada was 54th.In Asia and Pacific, virtually no progress was reported. Three countries in the region were keeping percentages up – Australia, New Zealand and Timor Leste, which ranked No. 18 in the world. China recorded a 2 percentage point increase. Nepal, with the highest percentage of women parliamentarians in South Asia came in at just under 30 per cent.Of the top 10 performing countries globally, four are on the African continent, which recorded a “very, very healthy increase,” Johnsson noted. Almost 20 years ago, women’s participation stood at less than 10 percent, but today that figure is 22.5 percent. Several factors influence the degree of women’s access to parliament, says the report. Quotas have been one of the main tools used to facilitate women’s access. A number of sub-Saharan African countries have recently enacted electoral laws that afford women greater access to political party backing and candidate lists, and thus greater representation and political leverage. The number of parliamentary seats occupied by women more than doubled in the lower houses of Cameroon and Zimbabwe.Quotas must be ambitious, detailed and be implemented to have impact, IPU states — a sentiment shared by the UN’s top envoy in Liberia, where “with women currently occupying some of Liberia’s most visible posts of influence, it would be easy to assume that women dominate political life.” Karin Landgren, Special Representative of the Secretary General and Coordinator for UN Operations in Liberia, notes, “Only 13 women sit in Liberia’s 103-member Legislature, where sentiment is lukewarm on initiatives to strengthen women’s political participation, such as the institution of quotas. Some women are being told, in effect, to enjoy this while it lasts: these are gains that may be reversed upon Liberia’s next presidential elections, to be held in 2017.”On the occasion of International Women’s Day, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka lauded the “record-breaking” increase by the gains made by women in political life around the world and vowed that her organization will keep fighting gender-based bias.“The record-breaking increase of women in national parliaments in 2013 is encouraging, but we are still far from equality,” Mrs. Mlambo-Ngcuka told the UN News Center. “Around the world, women are excluded from parliaments by discrimination, violence, party structures, poverty and a lack of finance.”“Temporary special measures like quotas are working, and UN Women will keep supporting the efforts of women, political parties, Governments and civil society to increase women’s political leadership and participation,” she said. Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway (left) with UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. Photo: Norwegian Prime Minister’s Office More women than ever before are being elected to Parliaments around the world. And if the current trend continues, gender parity is achievable in less than a generation.That’s the positive news from the latest annual review of Women in Parliament released this week at UN headquarters in Geneva by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), an international organization of parliamentarians, which works closely with the United Nations.”We actually saw a 1.5 percentage increase globally in Parliaments as a result of elections that took place in 2013. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but if you consider that we are now at almost 22 per cent of women in parliaments, if we were to continue with this rate of increase of 1.5 it means that within a generation, actually within 20 years, we should be able to reach globally gender parity in Parliament,” IPU Secretary-General Anders B. Johnsson said. “That is something we never imagined.”Rwanda led the list of 189 countries surveyed, with its Chamber of Duties recording more than 60 percent women.

The Dodgers Best Bats Heat Up At Just The Right Time

Justin Turner3B.411-1.2+0.0 The Dodgers’ best bats showed up late in Game 4Weighted on-base average (wOBA) and batting runs above average (RAA) for Los Angeles hitters in 2017 regular season and World Series Corey SeagerSS.374-0.2+0.5 WORLD SERIES GM. 4 RAA PLAYERPOSREG. SEASON WOBABEFORE 7TH INN.7TH+ INN. It’s impossible to say whether the Dodgers’ well-timed turnaround at the plate will kick-start their offense over the rest of the series. But they’d definitely been hitting below their talents up to that point — with a wOBA 94 points below their regular-season average — so it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bellinger and company’s late-game performance be part of a positive regression to the mean going forward.As for the Astros, Game 4 was an enormous missed opportunity. Starting pitcher Charlie Morton pitched extremely well — he had a Game Score of 76, tied for seventh-best ever among World Series starters in a game the team ultimately lost — and it was looking like he’d steal Houston a crucial second series win in a game not started by team co-aces Justin Verlander or Dallas Keuchel. Leading up to the World Series, Houston was 5-1 in playoff games started by Verlander/Keuchel but 2-3 in all other games, so getting a pair of wins from Morton and Game 3 starter Lance McCullers would have been a major coup for the Astros at this point in the series.Instead, Houston is left wondering how a bullpen that had outpitched Los Angeles’s early in the series managed to blow such a winnable home contest. According to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group, Astros closer Ken Giles has now allowed as many earned runs (10) in 7⅔ postseason innings as he did in 50⅔ innings during his last 50 appearances of the regular season, and the Houston bullpen as a whole now has a 5.21 ERA during the playoffs — nearly two runs worse than their starters per nine innings.The Astros aren’t doomed, of course. The series is basically a toss-up now, a de facto best-of-three affair that will see them face the Dodgers’ best pitcher (Clayton Kershaw) at home and also be able to use their own top starter (Verlander) to neutralize LA’s home-field advantage in Game 6. But in a flash, the Dodgers’ cold bats warmed up and saved their season, turning what would have been a commanding Houston lead into a series either team can now win.CORRECTION (Oct. 29, 2017, 11 a.m.): A previous version of this article mischaracterized the regular-season stats of Ken Giles. His 10 regular-season earned runs allowed came in his last 50 appearances of the season, not the entire season.CORRECTION (Oct. 29, 2017, 3:30 p.m.): A previous version of this article said Los Angeles scored seven times in Game 2. The Dodgers scored six times. Austin BarnesC.396-1.6-0.5 Total Yasiel PuigRF.360-1.2-0.5 Logan Forsythe2B.313-0.7+1.0 Yasmani GrandalC.336-0.80.0 Sources: ESPN Stats & Information Group, Fangraphs Cody Bellinger1B.396-3.5+1.6 Chase Utley2B.325-1.40.0 Enrique HernandezCF.320+0.4-0.5 Andre EthierRF.326+0.00.0 Charlie CulbersonSS.237+1.30.0 The Los Angeles Dodgers couldn’t buy a run, and their World Series chances were slipping away. After scoring six times off the Houston Astros but coming up short in a crazy, back-and-forth Game 2, they mustered three relatively low-leverage runs in Game 31None of those scores ever brought them any closer than within two runs of the Astros. and were shut out for the first six innings of Game 4. A loss here would have dropped LA’s World Series odds to around 20 percent, if history was any guide, and left this 104-win juggernaut staring at another postseason disappointment.But finally, after waiting most of the series for their bats to heat up, the Dodgers got what they were looking for late Saturday night. Cody Bellinger, who’d gone 0-for-13 in the World Series before the seventh inning of Game 4, delivered a double, then came around to score the tying run on a Logan Forsythe single. Two innings later, Corey Seager, who’d been hitless since Game 2, got on base with a single and scored on another Bellinger double, giving LA a lead it would never relinquish. (Joc Pederson’s three-run insurance homer four batters later also helped.) Suddenly, instead of falling into a 3-1 hole, the Dodgers knotted up the series at two games apiece and are back to being championship favorites again.Before Game 4’s assault on the Astros’ bullpen, the Dodgers as a team had produced 7.1 fewer runs than average in the series based on their weighted on-base average (wOBA),2Using the formula and constants provided at FanGraphs.com. including a collective 6.5 runs below average from the team’s four best hitters during the regular season by wOBA — Bellinger, Seager, Justin Turner and Austin Barnes.

The OECD report said that doing so would help ensure that people have a reasonable level of income once they retire. The report recommended, however, that it should be left up to individual workers to decide exactly what sort of plan they contribute to.#ABORTION: The Minister for Health James Reilly has said that pregnant women who are suicidal will not have to face a panel of six doctors should they want to access an abortion. His denial followed reports at the weekend that suggested that the Protection of Maternal Life bill would enforce such a clause. Dr Anthony McCarthy, who is one of Ireland’s three perinatal psychiatrists, called the proposals “ridiculous” and “a sick joke”.#BOSTON: The man suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, will not be treated as an “enemy combatant” by the US, the White House revealed today as he was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. The news came after Tsarnaev, who is believed to be suffering from a serious neck injury, awoke and responded to questions. His first hearing with be on 30 May.#JOBS: Government has published plans that it says will help to create 20,000 new jobs in the manufacturing sector by 2016. The strategy recommends building on strengths in pharma/biopharma, medical technologies, food, ICT, engineering, and off-site manufacturing (construction). Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said that the plan was achievable “with the right supports from government”.#DEFICIT: The government’s deficit for last year came in at lower than the Troika target, leading to this year’s estimate being revised, new figures released today have revealed. The news wasn’t all positive, however, as the figures also showed that government expects its debt-to-GDP ratio to hit 123 per cent at the end of this year, two percentage points higher than the estimate in last December’s Budget.THINGS WE LOVEDWith news that ATMs across Ireland will soon start dispensing €10 notes, DailyEdge.ie has six reasons why it’s great news for those of us who aren’t that flush.We love tenners!

Liveblog Sony PS4 event at E3

first_imgAs we wrap up day one of Geek Week, it looks like Sony has got a few things they want to talk about. We can only imagine what Sony has to tell us, what with their last press event leaving thousands of people hungry to know what their next-gen console would even look like.Announcing their console and games well ahead of Microsoft, Sony has had the drop on the Redmond crew so far this season. The big question is whether or not Sony will be implementing the same practices as Microsoft, whose television-focused Xbox One presentation a couple of weeks ago left many unhappy.There’s been a ton of speculation surrounding the price of the console, whether or not Sony will implement restrictions on used games, and whether or not the console will cease to function in the event that is doesn’t connect to the Internet once a day. Sony could certainly score the popular vote by announcing how different from Microsoft their console will be, or they could be implementing those same features for themselves.For now we can all kick back, relax, and let the guys and gals from Sony hop on stage and share with us everything that they came to E3 to share. We’ll be following along in this post with a live recap of what has happened so far, so if you’re late to the party just scroll down and catch up!And we’re off!The screens go dark and the Sony logo pops up, taking everyone in the audience through a trippy little tunnel of blue light with strands of light and PlayStation symbols everywhere. It then immediately flips over to a dance scene with people jamming out inside of PS shapes. Now we’re casually floating through the games that were announced at the last event with some rock and dance music in the background.Jack Tretton is on stage talking about the 220 million US gamers in the US and over a billion gamers worldwide. He gives a shout-out to the people who have been camping out at E3 since Friday and a nod to everyone watching from home and reading all the coverage on this week so far. Tretton talks about how Sony is going to revisit some of the details from the previous event, as well as PS3 and Vita news.Being able to play, share, and connect on your terms seems to be a big focus for Tretton. He explains that these are the core principles for the PS Vita, whose owners now have an average of 10 games, more than half of which have been purchased digitally. In 2013, Tretton expects Vita to continue to grow, announcing new titles like Destiny of Spirits and Killzone: Mercenary heading to the console later this year. God of War, Final Fantasy X and others will be seeing Vita remakes this year as well.After mentioning that there’s still more to be done with the PS3 we’re taking a look at The Last of Us, which is being called a Game of the Year candidate before it is even launched. Next up is a look at Puppeteer, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Gran Turismo 6. Tretton also gave us a look at Batman: Arkham Origins and showed off some of the original content you’ll get with the PlayStation 3.Grand Theft Auto 5 is also part of the exclusive content for the PS3. There will be a Grand Theft Auto 5 bundle in September, as well as a custom GTA5 headset for the PS3. Sony is making it very clear that there’s no shortage of good things coming to the PS3 before the launch of the PS4.It’s finally time to talk PS4!Sony comes right out of the gate by showing off the new hardware! It’s a unique black box with slanted edges, featuring a mix of glossy and matte black panels. Like many of Sony’s other consoles, the PS4 can be laid flat or stood up, looking mostly like a flattened PS3 classic when upright.CEO Michael Lynton is on stage, talking about how the content on the Sony Music Entertainment and other content providers will be curating content for gamers on the PlayStation Network. Sony Pictures will also be working on an original programming plan, with content that will be available exclusively on PSN. Everything on PSN is going to be chosen based on what Sony thinks is best for gamers.Redbox Instant is being made available to the PlayStation Network, as well as Pay Per View events through Sony Live Events. In the fall, Flixster will also be a part of the PlayStation experience.It’s time to talk new games, as Sony President Shu Yoshida comes on stage. He starts by explaining how World Wide Studios has been a part of the PS4 experience for the last 5 years to make sure it is a platform where developers can explore and consumers can enjoy. Yoshida is now talking about the effect of social networking on the gaming world. He shifts quickly to new IP for the PS4.First up is from Santa Monica Studio and Ready at Dawn. It’s a steampunk-esque shooter called The Order 1886, set in a world where a select few have been given immense power to help protect the world from evil.Next up is a update on the titles we saw back in February at the original launch. Starting with Killzone: Shadow Fall, Drive Club, inFamous: Second Son, and Knack, each game is visually incredible. Each of these, save for inFamous, will be a launch title.Now Yoshida is talking about the ability to show deeper emotions with characters, with a sneak peek at a 24 minute tech demo of The Dark Sorcerer to show what he means. Immediately you recognize the old man from the last presentation, which was used to show the quality of facial expressions and shading. In this demo, the only man is a sorcerer in the middle of a demonic summoning. The summoning abruptly and amusingly ends. The rest of the demo will be available soon.Yoshida is now passing the microphone off to Adam Boyes to talk about new experiences on PS4. Boyes is announcing a partnership with Supergiant Games, creator of Bastion, for a new game. Transistor, is a very artistic game where most everything looks hand drawn. The game looks to be a fun mesh of combat and puzzles, and is headed to PS4 first.Boyes is continuing to discuss how developers will be able to publish their own content to the PlayStation Network. The new Indie section of the PlayStation store will soon include Don’t Starve, Mercenary Kings, OctoDad-Dadliest Catch, Secret Ponchos, Outlast, Oddworld: New and Tasty, and Galak-Z.Diablo 3 is getting some screen time to mention that the PS4 version of the game will include exclusive in-game items from Sony’s other properties.Square Enix looks ready to update everyone on what they have been working on. “This is a fantasy based in reality” glistened across the screen right before showing off massive airships and men in cloaks. The fantastically real looking game has a modern day feel despite the clear fantasy influence. There’s some examples of sword play, magic, and shooting mixed in the storytelling. Final Fantasy Versus XV is the name of the game!There’s also a short trailer for Kingdom Hearts, which takes you quickly through the franchise so far to a beach with a keyblade resting in the sand. Kingdom Hearts 3 is the name, and you see plenty of familiar elements like heartless swarms and high walled towns to run through.Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is getting some screen time, showing off in game graphics and a quick look at the characters and style of the world. The main character moves through a pirate camp, drinking and socializing as he moves through the crowd. At the ends of the campsite the man finds himself following a man through the the trees to snoop on a private conversation. Much of the actual gameplay feels like the Assassin’s Creed we all know and love. The sequence ends as a fleet of enemy ships bombards the beach with cannons, forcing the main character to make way to his vessel and fight his way though the armada. When the ship finally succumbs to its wounds, you hop across to the other ship and go back to one on many combat.Jonathan Morin of Watch Dogs is talking about his new game and how the fact that his game can exist is what defines the next generation. He takes everyone through a live demo of this open world game, where your smartphone is the hacker instrument that gets you in and out of every situation. In the demo we see how the main character sees the world through the on screen HUD as he drives around in an attempt to get caught long enough to pull the “fixers” away from hunting his friend.As the demo comes to an end, the main character requests help from a mobile player, when the video pans to a person with a tablet that has a map of the world who is able to lend a hand by hacking a nearby distraction. PS4 owners will get an hour of gameplay that is exclusive to this console.Bethesda and Sony are also announcing a new multiplayer chapter in The Elder Scrolls saga. The game demo makes it clear that it will be up to the player to enjoy the game with friends on by themselves, and in Spring 2014 The Elder Scrolls Online will be here. There will be an exclusive PS4 beta made official at a later date. PS4 gamers will also have exclusive content in the upcoming Mad Max game, with a quick look at the brutal world in production right now.Jack Tretton is back on stage to to confirm that there will be no new restrictions on used games. “We believe in the model that people embrace today with the PS3.” which includes lending, sharing, and selling as you choose. Additionally, the games don’t require an Internet connection and the console does not require authentication of any kind to play any game. Microsoft is in trouble with this news for sure, as this will be more than enough to encourage people to pick one over the other.PS+ members who move their accounts over to the PS4 will get free access to the PS+ edition of Drive Club, as well as access to several of the Indie titles as you continue to participate in the monthly service.Bungie is on stage for the world gameplay premiere of Destiny, which Jack Tretton assures everyone will be best played on the PS4. This post apocalyptic game demo puts you in “old Russia” with gun in hand to explore some wild frontier. The main character has access to a floaty AI bot a GHOST, who moans about how cheerful the dark facility is as soon as he is summoned. The bot floats off and activates the lights for the facility, which in turn alerts some aliens to your existence.Despite their best efforts the aliens lose to the two shooters, in a shooting sequence that feel very similar to Halo. After that one fighting scene, it becomes clear that this is nothing like Halo — one of the big differences so far is the ability to revive fallen friends and a skill tree for weapons usage.As the group makes it though the wall, a public event is started where the everyone in the area that is playing the game can participate. This is similar in execution to Arkfalls in Defiance, where a group of strangers can participate in a real time event together.Sony has also announced their plans for streaming games in 2014 with their Gaikai based cloud based service. The PS4 and PS3 will have access to this service first, with PS Vita gaining access later.Finally, the main event. Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4 is going to be available for $399 this holiday season. This price undercuts the Xbox One by $100 on top of everything else we’ve learned tonight, which will be a huge deal for many future users.And that’s a wrap folks! Be sure to check back with us all week long as we continue our E3 coverage and break down everything we’ve learned from Sony’s E3 presentation.

Venezuelas new VP to be key figure for Chavez

first_imgDuring Chavez’s nearly 14-year-old presidency, he hasn’t anointed any clear successors, and has rotated various allies through the vice president position. Maduro is his eighth vice president.“The interesting thing to watch now will be whether Maduro takes on more responsibility than his predecessors and gets involved in a more substantive way in government business, which would be a sign that Chavez is indeed grooming him as his successor,” said Nicholas Watson, a Bogota-based analyst for the consulting firm Control Risks, headquartered in London.It’s possible Chavez waited to announce his vice presidential choice until after winning re-election because doing so sooner “could have triggered internal divisions within the ruling party,” said Diego Moya-Ocampos, an analyst with the consulting firm IHS Global Insight in London.Moya-Ocampos said that within Chavez’s movement, where civilian and military-aligned wings coexist, Maduro may be a “more conciliatory figure” than Jaua. Coordination with regional party leaders will likely be important ahead of the December elections and as Chavez looks to encourage more community decision-making through “communal” councils and other local bodies, he said. Top Stories Maduro is an influential leader within Chavez’s United Socialist Party, and before becoming foreign minister was National Assembly president.David Smilde, a sociology professor at the University of Georgia who studies Venezuela, said Maduro’s appointment is significant and shows the type of leadership Chavez wants to emphasize.“He is among the true leftists in the Chavez government. He believes in state control of the economy, anti-imperialist foreign policy, and the predominance of the executive over other branches and levels of the government,” Smilde said.“My guess is that making Maduro VP has a lot to do with Chavez’s health,” Smilde said. “As a potential successor to Chavez, Maduro is someone who would continue with the leftist elements of Chavez’s project, keep the base happy, continue close relations with Cuba, but perhaps be more comfortable in political negotiations than other potential successors or Chavez himself.”Some observers consider Maduro to be the official within Chavez’s inner circle with the closest links to Cuban leader Raul Castro, his brother Fidel and the island’s government.Chavez’s close friendship with Maduro goes back to the 1980s, when the Venezuelan leader was an army officer and formed a clandestine movement that eventually carried out a failed 1992 coup attempt.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Maduro’s role also could vary significantly depending on Chavez’s health, and provided his illness doesn’t recur Maduro is likely to act mainly as the president’s “close aide and negotiator,” Moya-Ocampos said.Political analyst Ricardo Rios said he thinks Maduro, as the political chief of the civilian wing of Chavez’s party, was chosen in part to achieve a balance between different blocs and dole out allowances of power.He noted that Diosdado Cabello, the president of the National Assembly and a former military officer, is another prominent party leader who will remain in an important national role rather than being assigned to run for a state governor’s office.Maduro knows well how the government works and can help further Chavez’s larger goals as he plans to start a “new phase” in his Bolivarian Revolution movement, said Vladimir Villegas, a journalist and former Venezuelan diplomat. He said Maduro carries weight due to his political acumen, experience as a union leader and the international profile he built working with allied countries.With his re-election win in hand, Chavez says he will deepen his socialist policies in his new term. He first took office in 1999 and now has the ability to complete two decades in office _ as long as his health holds. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement In his youth, Maduro belonged to a small political group called the Socialist League and traveled to Cuba for training in union organizing. He became a union organizer when he was working as a bus driver in Caracas.“Look where Nicolas is going, the bus driver,” Chavez quipped as he announced the appointment as vice president. Maduro smiled in the audience as the president said: “Look how they’ve mocked him. The bourgeoisie makes fun.”Chavez regularly chides many of his government ministers during televised meeting, questioning them about perceived mistakes or unfinished projects. But Chavez always speaks affectionately of Maduro.Chavez sometimes jokes that Maduro eats excessively, saying he should cut back on the submarine sandwiches he likes to devour.Maduro has proven adept at speaking on Chavez’s behalf without getting ahead of his boss’ public statements. Still, like most of Chavez’s aides, Maduro doesn’t stand out as an orator and usually keeps his public statements short and to the point.As vice president, he replaces Elias Jaua, who is running for a state gubernatorial seat in Dec. 16 elections against Henrique Capriles, the opposition candidate Chavez defeated in the presidential race. Associated PressCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – A burly former bus driver who rose through leftist political activism to become Venezuela’s top diplomat will be a key player as the vice presidential pick of President Hugo Chavez, who is heading into a new six-year term after a year of cancer treatment.Nicolas Maduro has shown unflagging loyalty and become a leading spokesman for the socialist Chavez as foreign minister. His appointment as vice president had been widely expected. Comments   Share   Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Chavez named Maduro as his choice Wednesday, three days after winning re-election, and the announcement renewed speculation about whether the 58-year-old president could finally be grooming a successor in case his health worsens.Since being named foreign minister in 2006, the mustachioed, 49-year-old Maduro has overseen many key international efforts, including consolidating the regional diplomatic blocs ALBA and Unasur, strengthening relations with countries including Russia, Iran and China, and achieving a rapprochement with U.S.-allied Colombia.“He has been Chavez’s best spokesperson. He appears strong, he’s charismatic to some, and he is loyal,” Eduardo Gamarra, a Latin American studies professor at Florida International University in Miami, said Thursday.The vice presidential job has assumed new importance because of Chavez’s recent struggle with cancer. After a year of treatment that included surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Chavez said in June that tests showed he was cancer-free. He has said tumors were removed from his pelvic area but hasn’t specified the exact location or type of cancer.During Chavez’s visits to Cuba for treatment, Maduro was among the few aides seen at his side, and that presence encouraged speculation he could fill in for Chavez if necessary. During one televised appearance in Cuba in April, Maduro was shown on television playing bocce ball with Chavez and the president’s elder brother, Adan. Bottoms up!

Tirico to do playbyplay from Augusta Womens Ama

first_imgTirico to do play-by-play from Augusta Women’s Amateur by Doug Ferguson, The Associated Press Posted Mar 26, 2019 12:10 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this March 2, 2017, file photo, Mike Tirico attends the NBC Universal mid-season press day at the Four Seasons in New York. NBC says Tirico will handle play-by-play duties for the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur on April 6, 2019, the first time viewers will see the course on TV before the Masters. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP, File) Mike Tirico has had various broadcasting duties at the Masters for the better part of 20 years, including play-by-play host for ESPN during weekday coverage. What excites him about this year is working the weekend in a new event that gives viewers their first look at Augusta National.NBC Sports says Tirico will be the play-by-play host for the final round of the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur. NBC will have live coverage from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, ahead of the Masters.Tirico also will host for the first time the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals the next day.“We all know as golf fans there’s nothing like that Thursday when you get to see competition at Augusta National,” Tirico said Tuesday from Phoenix, where he is covering the NFL meetings. “Every fan looks forward to turning on the TV and seeing it for the first time.”Now the viewers get their first look five days earlier.“You’re going to see tremendous players … under pressure they never faced before,” Tirico said. “That’s pretty cool TV.”It will be the first competition for women at the home of the Masters, and Tirico says being an amateur event speaks even deeper to the heritage. Augusta National was the vision of Bobby Jones, the co-founder and the most prominent amateur in the history of golf.“To have Augusta National not only open its course for a great competition for women, but women amateurs, the combination of the two is as strong a message as you can sent to the roots of golf, the growth of golf and the development of golf,” he said. “It’s the most known canvas in golf, and you’re bringing a new palette, and it’s going to be awesome.”The Augusta National Women’s Amateur features 60 top players competing for two rounds at Champions Retreat, with a cut to exactly 30 players, even if a playoff for the final spots is required. All participants can have a practice round Friday, with the final of the 54-hole event the following day.Tirico will be joined in the booth by NBC Sports golf analysts Paige Mackenzie, a three-time All-American at Washington, and Gary Koch, who has spent 22 years as an NBC golf analyst and will be calling golf at Augusta National for the first time.Two-time U.S. Women’s Amateur champion Kay Cockerill and Frank Nobilo will be hole announcers.Tirico’s career has including host duties at the Olympics, Sunday night football, the British Open and, later this year, the Indianapolis 500. He considers the Augusta National Women’s Amateur as having similar characteristics to the Olympics.Amateur golf is not widely covered on network TV outside of the USGA’s biggest events, and the NCAA Championships have gained traction in recent years going to match play and full coverage on Golf Channel.“The players, other than a few that I’ve seen during the NCAAs, are mostly unknown to fans,” Tirico said. “This is what we do a regular basis for the Olympics, with athletes we don’t cover every day who have stories to be told.”Doug Ferguson, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Talks must restart immediately say Kyprianou and Tsipras

first_imgNegotiations on the Cyprus problem need to start immediately and they need to end positively, Akel general-secretary Andros Kyprianou and Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday.Speaking after a meeting at Tsipras’ office, Kyprianou said “negotiations have to restart and this time go to the end, not just based on any solution but on what has been agreed with repeated resolutions at the UN, both communities, international and European law.”If there is enough political will then there is room for solving the Cyprus problem, Kyprianou told reporters as he left Maximos mansion.During the meeting, the two had exchanged opinions on the prospects which appeared to be opening up with UN envoy Jane Holl Lute’s meetings.Kyprianou said the visit had been scheduled from last week and although Akel had asked if it should be postponed due to the wildfires that killed scores in Greece and prompted a national emergency, they were told by Tsipras that the meeting could go ahead.The general-secretary expressed his condolences to Tsipras while the country is in a period of three-day mourning, and said Akel was going to contribute a symbolic amount of €5,000 to help those affected. You May LikeBridesBlushFunniest Boat Names On The Open SeasBridesBlushUndoCar List15 Best Designed Cars Ever MadeCar ListUndoDr. Marty Nature's Blend Supplement3 Warning Signs Your Dog Is Crying For HelpDr. Marty Nature’s Blend SupplementUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoBrazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Health minister and paediatricians in spat over Gesy

first_imgHealth Minister Constantinos Ioannou censured the island’s paediatric society on Tuesday after it issued an alarmist statement about the planned national health scheme, or Gesy, urging their members not to join.In a statement on Tuesday afternoon, the minister said the biggest reform in the health sector could not be reversed.Ioannou said it was regretful to see certain paediatricians trying to undermine the reforms using lies, misinformation and inaccuracies in a bid to create a “climate of panic” among the public.The minister questioned why the society would criticise Gesy with such rage, taking advantage of the concerns of patients, let alone the vulnerable group of the children, “carefully omitting to mention what was really said and the clarifications given.”Ioannou went on to suggest that maybe certain other interests were at stake.The minister said he expected them, as people whom people entrusted with the health of their children, to be the first to note that the current health system was not functional and fair to patients and to spearhead the effort to ensure Gesy’s success.“Instead, I am observing a, fortunately, isolated group of paediatricians hiding behind their capacity as members of the paediatric society to promote their personal agendas,” the minister said.Ioannou said he had expected an organised group like the society, which was a frontrunner in the past, to cast any personal ambitions and interests aside and embrace the effort, putting the interest of the patients first.In its statement, the society said under Gesy, children would only be able to see one doctor for any problem.“You will no longer have the right to directly visit a different specialty such as a cardiologist, dermatologist, surgeon, ophthalmologist, orthopedic, ENT, etc. Without his referral, no other specialty would see you.”They also claimed that each doctor would only be allowed to register 2,500 patients in their list. If the preferred doctor has filled his list, a patient would have to seek someone else.Patients who were unhappy with their doctor could not change them before six months passed from the day they registered with them, the society said.“Thus, after six months, you will have to find another paediatrician who would have to accept of course to register you.”They also claimed they would not be able to spend so much time on patients, surgeries would be overcrowded, encouraging contagion, it will be more expensive, group insurance policies will be scrapped, and contributions will rise every year.You May Like10gadgets.infoBest Wearable Tech Gadgets10gadgets.infoUndoWikibuyThe Under Armour Hack People Actually Swear ByWikibuyUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameThe Must-Play City Building Game of 2018Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)UndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
