Kidambi Srikanth seals final spot Sindhu crashes out at India Open

first_imgNew Delhi: Former champion Kidambi Srikanth reached title round after a 17-month drought but P V Sindhu bowed out after losing a close semifinal contest at the USD 350,000 India Open here Saturday. Olympic silver medallist Sindhu, who had won the event in 2017, blew four game points in the opening game to go down fighting 21-23 18-21 to China’s He Bingjiao. The third seed will face two-time champion Ratchanok Inthanon of Thailand in the finals Sunday.

I made crucial mistakes in the second game,” Sindhu said. “I did change strategies. She also got lucky with net cords in the first game. I came back and could have maintained the led but I couldn’t. She played well.” Srikanth had entered the finals of Commonwealth Games last year but he failed to reach the summit clash in any BWF Superseries or BWF World Tour tournament since his French Open win in October, 2017.

He will face second seed Viktor Axelsen, who beat India’s Parupalli Kashyap 21-11 21-17, in the final. “It’s been really long since I reached a final. I’m just happy to be here, playing the final again,” Srikanth said. “I was trailing in the decided and I am happy to pull it off. I’m happy to come back in the second. It was about keeping the shuttle in. The crowd kept me going in.” In the women’s semi-final, Sindhu managed to hold a 11-8 lead at the break. She kept the shuttle in play, mixing her strokes to push Bingjiao to commit errors to lead 20-16. But Indian committed a heap of unforced errors to allow the Chinese level score. At 21-21, a lucky net chord put Bingjiao on lead leaving Sindhu frustrated, who sent another one at the net to lose the opening game. The second game begun on an even keel as the duo rode on each other’s errors to move 8-8 before Sindhu grabbed a 11-9 advantage at the break. The Indian stayed a step ahead, despite Bingjiao constant threat. At 16-13, a few weak returns from Sindhu allowed the Chinese to level scores. Bingjiao quickly grabbed two points to take two match points. Sindhu then sent the next shuttler to the net to bow out. In the men’s singles semi-finals, Srikanth used his flat tosses and deep lifts to engage his rival into rallies but Huang was also up to the task before the Indian managed to held a 11-10 lead at the first break. The duel continued before the Chinese moved to a 18-14 lead after the Indian lost a few points at the net. Srikanth saved two game points with a cross court smash and a precise net shot before hitting wide to lose the first game.last_img read more

UN says aid for Côte dIvoire could stave off renewed regional instability

With disarmament proceeding in Liberia and completed in Sierra Leone, Côte d’Ivoire “must receive international support” for similar efforts to consolidate regional gains, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said. “If not, Côte d’Ivoire could jeopardize its neighbours’ fragile recovery.”Before conflict broke out in Côte d’Ivoire, 25 per cent of its population was immigrants or descendants of immigrants from bordering States, according to OCHA. About 70 per cent of all exports from Mali and 80 per cent of those from Burkina Faso moved through Côte d’Ivoire’s port in Abidjan.The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has registered 52,000 Ivoirian refugees who fled their country as fierce fighting raged and basic services broke down, OCHA said. Meanwhile, 342,000 Burkinabé and 82,000 Malians migrants also left Côte d’Ivoire.The consolidated UN appeal requires $69 million in 2004 to meet urgent humanitarian needs and support the return home of half a million internally displaced people (IDPs) in the country. read more

Fishermen in Gabon to benefit from new UN project

With $270,000 in FAO support, Gabonese fishery officials will streamline procedures to assess and monitor Gabon’s fishery resources and create a national strategy to promote the sector. “We hope this new project will help Gabon build up its fishing sector in a sustainable manner, adding jobs to the local economy and increasing the supply of marine fish also on the local market,” said Ulf Wijkström, Chief of FAO’s Fisheries Development Planning Service, which will help oversee the project. The agency noted that recent figures show that net revenues from the fish trade (exports minus imports) by developing countries have reached $17.7 billion – a sum larger than that earned from their exports of tea, rice, cocoa and coffee combined. In Gabon, small-scale artisanal fishing provides many with income and food, but most modern commercial fishing is conducted by foreign vessels. Just 10 to 20 per cent of the crews on those ships are Gabonese, and due to poor port infrastructure most vessels offload their catches in other countries, meaning jobs lost in related sectors like fish processing. At the same time, Gabon’s yearly fish production, estimated at between 40,000 and 50,000 tons, falls short of national demand. Each year the country imports over 7,000 tons of fish products, FAO said. A main barrier to developing Gabon’s fishing industry has been the difficulty of maintaining a focused development strategy. The new project will strengthen monitoring, assessing and reporting on fish stocks; suggest ways to create fish-processing centres and related industries to boost earnings; analyze service and infrastructure gaps in Gabon’s ports with an eye to upgrading them; and develop strategies for attracting investors to the country’s fishing sector. read more

Mens Lacrosse Ohio State barrages No 20 Michigan with 44 shots on

Ohio State senior attack Jackson Reid looks for an open shooting lane against Michigan on April 13, 2018. Ohio State won 8-5. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Assistant Sports EditorA rowdy No. 20 Michigan lacrosse team entered Ohio stadium today with one thought on its mind: to end Ohio State’s perfect 6-0 all-time record against it.Unfortunately for the Maize and Blue, Ohio State had a different result in mind and defeated its arch-rivals 8-5, marking its first victory inside The Shoe this season. It also snapped Ohio State’s five-game losing streak.Michigan’s confidence, due in part to the team owning its longest ranked streak in school history, was quickly suppressed when the Buckeyes (6-6, 1-2 Big Ten) came out of the gate with three rapid goals. Ohio State’s cohesive defense and aggressive offense made sure that it never gave up the lead to the No. 20 Wolverines (7-5, 0-3 Big Ten) and, amidst the roaring cheers of an enthusiastic home crowd, closed out the game with a refreshing win that broke its losing skid.“It’s special. I grew up knowing all about the rivalry, and I grew up a Buckeye fan,” Ohio State senior midfield Bo Lori said. “To go undefeated against those guys is special. I mean ultimately for this team right now we just needed that win, and it was a big win for us in this season, so that’s the most important thing.”Ohio State’s All-American sophomore attack Tre Leclaire paced the team’s offense, recording a hat-trick before the end of the third period. Five other Buckeyes found a home on the scoreboard as a result of a composed and dynamic offensive effort.Ohio State sophomore attack Tre Leclaire walks off the field with his teammates after scoring his first goal of the game in the first quarter against Michigan on April 13, 2018.

Ohio State beat Michigan 8-5. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Assistant Sports EditorEvans, Lori and Ohio State head coach Nick Myers all agreed that Ohio State’s defensive success was a primary reason the offense came out firing on all cylinders. “We took a lot of confidence knowing the way our defense was playing, we did a great job battling for ground balls between the lines, I thought that was huge,” Myers said. “We came up with some loose balls, some transition goals. Faceoffs really picked up in the third quarter, but at the end of the day we left a lot of goals on the board.”Michigan’s offense was led by junior midfielders Decker Curran and Brent Noseworthy, who combined for three of five of the Wolverines’ goals. Defensively, Michigan’s senior goalie Tommy Heidt did the best he could, making 15 saves on the night, but was ultimately overpowered by the Buckeye onslaught.Michigan’s loss is its third in Big Ten play, while Ohio State broke new ground and recorded its first victory in the conference and kept its playoff chances alive.  “This is a Big Ten win – they’re hard to come by at home, a much-needed win. I know this team’s got a lot of confidence and knows there’s a lot more out there for us,” Myers said.Next weekend, the Buckeyes will be put to the test when they hit the road to face No. 1 Maryland (9-1, 2-0 Big Ten) on its home turf. read more

Newquay sheds reputation as teenage rite of passage destination and lifts ban on

“So this year, 2019, Operation Exodus has come to an end. Perhaps it’s an indication of the evolution of Newquay into a more family-friendly resort.”Though the club nights are ending, he warned that under-age youngsters still will not be allowed into pubs.“There won’t be a great deal for them to do in the evening but if they are coming down, they’re more than welcome to go surfing during the day and we would encourage that.”We recognise that post-GCSE students used to be attracted to the town, so our position has been that we have had to responsibly manage them and ensure their safeguarding is treated as a priority.” Newquay has shed its reputation as a teenage “rite of passage” holiday destination and is lifting a curb on under-18s celebrating the end of their exams.The Cornish seaside town, once popular with youngsters after they had finished their GCSEs, was forced to introduce under-18 discos in an attempt to keep rowdy teenagers off the streets.The strict guidelines were brought in after local residents demanded action when two teenagers, Paddy Higgins and Andrew Curwell, plunged from cliffs to the deaths in 2009.Operation Exodus, backed by Devon and Cornwall Police, was introduced, with clubs and campsites staging carefully-controlled party nights in early July for youngsters travelling to Newquay to celebrate leaving school.But police have announced Operation Exodus is ending this year because the resort’s image has changed. Newquay Safe, a partnership between the council, police and other agencies, says it’s because fewer young people are having nights out in the town, which is now much quieter in the evenings.The guidelines are no longer needed because today’s soberside youngsters prefer the quiet life to letting their hair down, the council said.Local Police Inspector Dave Meredith wrote on Twitter: “The changing face of Newquay: less drunks, far more family friendly.

Spending watchdog tells Government to stick to €2 billion austerity target

first_imgTHE STATE’S FISCAL watchdog has warned the Government to stick to its planned €2 billion adjustment in next year’s budget.The Irish Fiscal Advisory Council (IFAC) issued the call this morning as it launched its latest Fiscal Assessment Report.While it acknowledged that the Government has made significant gains, it warned against pulling the trigger too early and easing off austerity before the danger of an economic relapse has fully passed.“The borrowing capacity of the State has been restored, growth has resumed and Ireland successfully exited the EU-IMF assistance programme on schedule.”But a number of challenges remain. These centre on risks surrounding growth prospects and the difficulties in delivering a sustained period of expenditure restraint in the face of demand pressures on public services.IFAC said that the State still has to tackle risks around the sustainability of its debt position by consolidating progress made to date on the debt-to-GDP ratio.That indicator must fall to 3% of GDP by the time Ireland exits an oversight mechanism known as the Excessive Deficit Procedure next year.In the light of these risks to hitting the deficit target, the €2 billion target should be adhered to, IFAC chairman John McHale said.“Anyone who expresses certainty that based on an adjustment of less than €2 billion that we will meet that target is underestimating the uncertainties that exist.”The call to stick to the budget target contrasts with predictions from the ESRI that the full adjustment can be avoided issued in recent months.McHale said that the worst of austerity will be over in 2015.2016 overshootIFAC also said that the Government’s adjustment plans for the period after 2015 could be more than is in fact being demanded of Ireland by Europe, raising the possibility of a greater easing-off of austerity than had been projected in two year’s time.It called on the Government to explain why it had chosen targets that “appear to go beyond the minimum requirements of the new fiscal framework”.McHale urged Government to plan cutbacks carefully to avoid wreaking havoc with services.“It’s very important to plan those expenditure reductions to ensure that very significant damages aren’t done to the public services.”Read: Fiscal council finds ‘wiggle room’ on Budget – but wants full cuts>Read: €2 billion budget cuts can be avoided* says ESRI>last_img read more

Tempête Xynthia un plan digue sera présenté dici à deux mois

first_imgTempête Xynthia : un plan digue sera présenté d’ici à deux moisFrance – Au lendemain de la tempête Xynthia qui s’est abattue sur la Vendée et la Charente-Maritime, la secrétaire d’État à l’Écologie Chantal Jouanno a affirmé que “le plan digue” promis par Nicolas Sarkozy serait présenté “dans maximum deux mois”.Ce plan se traduira par “des travaux et un plan de financement sur cinq ans”, a précisé la secrétaire d’État avant d’indiquer qu’il sera précédé d’un pré-rapport. Ce dernier, dont l’élaboration a été confiée au Conseil général de l’environnement et du développement durable et à l’Inspection générale de l’administration, devrait être remis dans les dix jours, après une inspection “de l’ensemble des digues et des zones à risque”.Si le montant de l’enveloppe financière n’a pas encore été évalué, Chantal Jouanno a estimé le coût du renforcement des digues à 1 million d’euros par kilomètre. Il s’agira donc dans un premier temps de définir les lieux les plus sensibles. Ceux-ci devront être concernés en priorité par le plan de réfection des digues dont la faiblesse a été révélée par la violente tempête Xynthia qui a balayé la Vendée et la Charente-Maritime. “La priorité, c’est là où il y a des constructions derrière les digues” a souligné la secrétaire d’État.”Le gouvernement veut tirer les leçons de cet événement et engager très rapidement un plan d’actions pour éviter qu’un tel drame se reproduise”, a de son côté affirmé Luc Chatel, porte-parole du gouvernement, à l’occasion de son compte-rendu du Conseil des ministres.Dans un communiqué, France nature environnement (FNE) assure que les digues, même renforcées, ne donneront qu’un “faux sentiment de sécurité”. Comme le souligne l’association de protection de l’environnement, “aucune digue ne sera assez haute pour assurer un risque zéro”. Et Benoit Hartmann, coordinateur du pôle aménagement durable du territoire à FNE, d’expliquer : “A l’image d’une assurance, les digues doivent nous préserver des risques ordinaires, mais ne sauraient être dimensionnées de telle façon à nous protéger de tous les événements. Irait-on surélever à quinze mètres toutes les digues existantes et endiguer tout le littoral restant pour pouvoir faire face à un tsunami ?”Le 5 mars 2010 à 10:07 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Critical Commentary on the Role of Women in Selma

first_imgAs the present-day movement for racial equality is on the rise across America, The Black Women’s Roundtable and Truth Speaks Consulting hosted Jan. 13 a Twitter Town Hall (#sistersofselma) on the box office movie, Selma to discuss the role of women in social activism, particularly of those in the film.The film featured prominent women, who worked in the trenches, strategized and led the way for thousands.  Selma made its debut on Jan 9 to rave reviews.“I loved seeing the women being lifted in the film like Amelia Boynton,” said Melanie Campbell ‏(@coalitionbuildr).For two decades, Boynton held black voter registration drives in Selma, Alabama. In 1964, she became the first African American woman and the first female Democratic candidate to run for a seat in Congress from Alabama, earning ten percent of the vote. She was instrumental in organizing the Selma to Montgomery March, which left her brutally wounded on that infamous Bloody Sunday.“How did your grandmother Mrs. Amelia Boynton like seeing herself in the movie?” asked moderator LaTosha Brown (@MsLaToshaBrown) to Carver Boynton (@Carverboynton).   “She enjoyed the movie, but her first comment was “where are the women? The women pushed the movement forward!” responded Boyton (@Carverboynton).Personally, Boynton (@Carverboynton) shares a sentiment common throughout the discussion: “part of me was so excited to just see Boynton, Nash and Coretta S. King with voices and visible roles… ultimately, I really wish they did more speaking.”For Dawne Shand (@dfshand) this was the movie’s weakness, “Women were treated as beautiful props,” she said. “The women offer moral courage and romantic love as support, but aren’t treated as leaders in their own right. Diane Nash’s breathless “Mr. Bevel” seemed gratuitous. I didn’t love the reduction of Nash’s role on the screen.”Nash was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in April 1960. A year later, she served jail time in solidarity with the “Rock Hill Nine” — nine students imprisoned after a lunch counter sit-in. Like, Boynton, Nash played a significant role in the Selma campaign for voting rights.While the stories of these women may not have been accentuated in the film, their presence still serves as an inspiration. “Many will see, understand and be inspired by the courage, strategy and hopefulness of those that went to distance for change!” said Boynton (@Carverboynton).Their legacies will live on and be embodied in future movements for racial equality and justice.

Cosby Lawyers Ask Appeals Court to Toss MeToo Conviction

first_imgBy MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated PressHARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania appeals court on Monday questioned why actor Bill Cosby never got a supposed non-prosecution agreement in writing as his lawyers asked the panel to overturn his sexual assault conviction.Cosby, 82, is serving a three- to 10-year prison term for drugging and molesting a woman at his home in what became the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era.The three-judge panel asked why Cosby’s top-shelf lawyers didn’t follow the norm and get an immunity agreement in writing, and approved by a judge, when accuser Andrea Constand first came forward in 2005.In this, Sept. 24, 2018 file photo Bill Cosby arrives for his sentencing hearing at the Montgomery County Courthouse, , in Norristown, Pa. A Pennsylvania appeals court will hear arguments, Monday, Aug. 12, 2019, as Cosby appeals his sexual assault conviction. The 82-year-old Cosby is serving a three- to 10-year prison term. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)“This is not a low-budget operation. … They had an unlimited budget,” said Superior Court Judge John T. Bender. “Could it be they knew this was something the trial court would never have allowed?”Cosby’s lawyers have long argued that he relied on the promise before giving testimony in Constand’s 2005 lawsuit that proved incriminating when it was unsealed a decade later.Judge Carolyn Nichols echoed Bender’s point, asking, “how can the elected district attorney bind that office in perpetuity?”Cosby’s lawyers also attacked Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill’s decision to let five other accusers testify when Cosby went on trial last year, after more than 60 accusers came forward and his deposition was unsealed. Prosecutors said they chose women whose accounts showed that Cosby had a “signature” crime pattern. Bender seemed to agree, interrupting defense arguments that their stories had significant differences.“The reality of it is, he gives them drugs and then he sexually assaults them,” he said. “That’s the pattern, is it not?”Kristen L. Weisenberger, representing Cosby, said one of the women wasn’t even sure she’d been violated. But prosecutors said that’s how Cosby planned it.“The defendant should not be . rewarded because she has no recollection because of the drugs he gave her,” Assistant District Attorney Adrienne Jappe argued.The court’s decision on how many other accusers should be allowed to testify will be closely watched by sexual assault survivors and defense lawyers as men like movie mogul Harvey Weinstein await trial in #MeToo-type cases.O’Neill had allowed just one other accuser at Cosby’s first trial in 2017, when the jury failed to reach a verdict.Cosby’s lawyers called the decision to let five testify at the retrial arbitrary and prejudicial. However, the panel said judges are not bound by their earlier trial rulings.Cosby, who is serving time at a state prison near Philadelphia, was not in court for the arguments at the Pennsylvania Capitol in Harrisburg. The court typically takes several months to issue decisions.Long beloved as “America’s Dad” for his TV role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable, Cosby has called his encounters with Constand and other accusers consensual.In his deposition, Cosby acknowledged getting quaaludes in the 1970s to give to women before sex, including 19-year-old Therese Serignese, whom he had met at a Las Vegas hotel. Serignese traveled from Florida to attend Monday’s hearing.“Remember, there are 60 accusers,” she said. “Out of 19 prior bad act witnesses requested by the prosecutors, the judge only allowed five. I say Bill Cosby got a good deal there.”last_img read more

UAE Personal Protective Equipment Market Revenue Projected to Reach 7024 Million

first_imgUAE Personal Protective Equipment Market by Type and Application: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2025 the UAE personal protective equipment market size was estimated at $401.4 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $702.4 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 7.3% from 2018 to 2025. In 2017, the hand & arm protection equipment segment accounted for approximately one-fourth share in the UAE personal protective equipment market and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 8.3%.Download Sample PDF Brochure: Health and Safety (OHS) risks in the workplace environment increased along with the growth in workforce of the UAE. In addition, the UAE has confirmed the significance of occupational health and safety (OHS) through recent efforts at the individual, organization, and Emirate levels. Thus, the UAE PPE market is expected to witness rapid growth owing to stringent government regulations concerning the safety at workplace.The personal protective equipment, or PPE, are ergonomically designed to protect the workers from hazards found on or off the job. The hazards addressed by protective equipment include physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biohazards, airborne particulate matter, and myriad of other possibly hazardous situations. Owing to the growth in injuries and number of workplace accidents, the UAE government introduced many advanced legislations to protect workers, such as the Domestic Labor Law. Also, OSHA and MoHRE continues to work for improving the protection offered to workers.Rise in injuries and accidents due to the falling objects, flying sparks, sharp edges, chemicals, and noise have led to the increased awareness amongst the worker about the safety and precautions, thereby driving the sales of PPE in the UAE market. Moreover, growth in application of PPE in the construction industry owing to the rapid expansion of new infrastructure and upgradation of existing infrastructure in UAE further boosts the growth of the personal protective equipment market.Hands & arm protection equipment such as protective gloves, wrist cuffs & armlets, elbow protectors, and others offer protection against cut, slash, abrasion, flames, and chemical spill, and thus form the basic safety requirement in almost every industry. Falling objects, flying sparks, sharp edges, chemicals, noise, and countless other possibly hazardous situations further leads to the application of other PPE such as protective clothing, leg protection equipment, respiratory protection equipment, head protection equipment, eye & face protection equipment, and others such as hearing protection equipment, fall protection equipment, and gas detector. However, increased automation in end-use industries is projected to hamper the market growth.Top Market Players: Honeywell International Inc., 3M Company, E. I.

We are the state Citizen power from Iguala to Ferguson

first_imgRelated posts:US Justice Department to launch probe of Ferguson police in wake of recent violence Islamic State terrorists talked of entering U.S. through Mexico Elena Poniatowska: Mexican student massacre reminiscent of concentration camps Sentencing in Chile begins to bring closure in 41-year-old murder cases of US citizens Frank Teruggi and Charles Horman “L’état c’est moi”(I am the State) is a phrase commonly attributed to Louis XIV of France. Although there is no proof that he actually said it, the phrase has survived for centuries, and today is often used to refer to states and governments that abuse their power. Democracy has many meanings and interpretations, but one of its core principles is that it is incompatible with tyranny – that many people are the state, and no one person can determine a country’s destiny. The world has come a long way in understanding this concept. Never before in human history have so many people been aware that a politician, a policeman or a bureaucrat must not impose his will on citizens or override their rights.This level of awareness has also been accompanied, to varying degrees, by better institutions, regulations and practices for the exercise of public power – but the task is far from complete. Unfortunately, a strong belief in democracy has not translated automatically into better democratic states that are able to protect their citizens while respecting their freedoms. Recent headlines have highlighted this in unsettling ways. The abduction of more than 270 schoolgirls in Nigeria seven months ago; the more than 20 people murdered every day in Honduras, the most violent country in the world without an armed conflict; and the disappearance of 43 students in the city of Iguala in Mexico are just three internationally infamous examples of states’ failure to keep their citizens safe. What’s more, daily occurrences of street crime, terrorism and overall violence are even worse in these and many other countries. And the public unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, because of the killing of young Michael Brown by a police officer has shown that even in consolidated democracies like the United States, state institutions are not exempt from being discredited and losing public support.Recommended: When ‘politician’ is a dirty wordThat’s what’s at stake here, after all. Events like these result not only in the loss of human lives, but also of confidence in the state’s institutions to prevent such tragedies, and to judge the responsible parties. People demand security and justice. When they get neither, the result is a serious rupture of the bond between the state’s institutions, the people and their representatives. An opposition student writes an anti-government slogan on a shop window in Caracas, Venezuela, on May 8, 2014. Juan Barreto/AFPSo how should we respond to situations like this? How can states facing such tragedies protect citizens’ safety as well as their liberties? The answer is not simple. Determining the extent of state powers and of citizens’ rights has been a political dilemma for centuries. And yet, we have states and we have to deal with them the best way we can to protect and enhance liberty. That, at least in modern liberal democracies, is the ultimate goal. Immediate political interests, however, have sacrificed the end for the means by increasing the powers of the state. Think of the the “mano dura” (strong hand) policies in Latin America to fight crime, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s plans to “reform” the police force, or the anti-terrorism laws enacted all around the world with little or none inclusive debate. This is not the best answer, and our representatives and we know it. Granting draconian powers to leaders or police forces has proved wrong in the past, and it’s wrong now. Moreover, it is wrong in essence. It is also most often a political show, especially when those leaders or forces are also weak or corrupt.The only way to prevent tyranny while guaranteeing security is through reasonable and permanent debate within political parties, civil society organizations, and academic institutions within the formal and informal mechanisms of discussion in a democracy. There is a difference – a big one – between citizens agreeing on legal, legitimate and reasonable limitations to the exercise of certain freedoms to provide security, and governments imposing limitations. Societies that openly discuss the scope of their security policies, the extent of their rights, and the necessity of their laws, are the only ones able to counteract any attempt of tyranny from their public authorities. The leadership and structure of these discussions should come from our legislatures. Unfortunately, legislatures are the democratic institutions with least public support – but that’s an issue for another column. A man holds a sign as he protests on Aug. 15, 2014 the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Joshua Lott/AFPThe solution, of course, also includes pragmatic measures like having better and more transparent judiciaries, prosecutors and police forces, which requires reform, training and the corresponding investment. However, as hinted above, the solution is not only monetary. It is also moral, and that requires deeper changes. It requires changes from those in power: People are right to be angry because their fellow citizens are dying and disappearing, sometimes because of the indolence and inaction of the highest authorities. In the case of Mexico, for example, protesters on the streets are not only angry because of what happened, but also because their president is not listening to them.It also requires changes from citizens. Our democracies are at risk when some citizens remain indifferent to tragedies like the ones I’ve mentioned here, while others die or live with fear every day. That is a sign not only of inequality but also of democratic rupture. A failed state is a reflection of a failed society. All citizens are responsible for the state they have. No doubt bad political representatives can aggravate social situations by inaction or via erroneous laws and policies, but in the long run states are enhanced or weakened by everyone.There’s another quote attributed to Louis XIV: “I leave, but the State shall always remain.” Protests in Mexico, Nigeria, United States and many other countries are showing that citizens believe that if some states will endure beyond our generation, they must change. Building the type of state we want is the hard task. But the painful events in recent headlines have shown us that there is something we know: We as citizens are clear about the type of state we do not want to have.Read previous Politic(o)s columns here  Tomás Quesada-Alpízar is pursuing his doctoral degree in politics at the University of Oxford.

British airports should concentrate on improving their existing facilities in order to provide a better service to passengers, Which? Holiday magazine has said.Jonathan Mitcham, a principal researcher for the consumer group’s magazine, said that a recent measure at Luton Airport, which has launched a new priority lane for passengers, “shouldn’t be necessary”.”Airport and airport operators should be looking to increase the standards of service for passengers given the facilities they already have,” he commented.Luton’s priority lane allows passengers to pay £3, which gives them quicker access to the security check point.Mr Mitcham added that passengers “shouldn’t have to be charged extra money for that kind of service”.According to Which? Holiday’s airport report, Heathrow’s Terminal 1 is bottom of the satisfaction table, with just 31 percent of people saying they were happy with the terminal’s level of service.A further 62 percent said they felt reassured by security arrangements at British airport terminals, although 19 percent admitted that they felt “intimidated” by security staff at Heathrow’s Terminal 2.

MOSCOW – Roger Federer almost sounded offended whe

first_img MOSCOW – Roger Federer almost sounded offended when asked whether he would be concerned about Centre Court spectators paying too much attention to the World Cup final during the Wimbledon men’s singles final.“I’m more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on,” he quipped. “They’ll hear every point, ‘Wow, love-15, 15-30.’ The players are going to look up in the crowd and not understand what’s going on at Wimbledon.”“That’s how important Wimbledon is to me,” the eight-time champion said, before he was eliminated in the quarterfinals this week, “and to us over here.”What’s a viewer to choose this Sunday?The Wimbledon final between the man who beat Federer, Kevin Anderson, and Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic could be only about halfway done in London when the World Cup final between France and Croatia kicks off in Moscow.This year’s soccer final starts at 11 a.m. EDT, an unusual time: nine of the 10 World Cup finals from 1978 through 2014 started in the 2-3:30 p.m. EDT range. The exception was the 2002 finale in Japan, which began at 7 a.m. EDT.“I’m sure the change they made was to maximize their audience worldwide, considering the time in China, Japan, Russia, all the other major countries,” said former CBS Sports President Neal Pilson, now an industry consultant.The soccer game begins at 6 p.m. local time at Luzhniki Stadium, which is 5 p.m. in Paris and Zagreb. The shift appears aimed at soccer’s ever-increasing Asian audience, with the start time at 11 p.m. in Tokyo and midnight in Beijing. Four of FIFA’s 11 top-level partners and sponsors are Chinese companies.“The kickoff times for the FIFA World Cup were set in co-operation with a range of stakeholders and taking into account a number of aspects such as the global broadcast market and feasibility for the fans — both in terms of attending the matches and reaching a wide TV audience,” soccer’s governing body said in an email to The Associated Press.In the U.S., the soccer is on Fox and the tennis on ESPN. In Britain, the soccer is on both BBC1 and ITV, and the tennis on BBC1. Tennis would switch to BBC2 if the finals overlap.“In due respect to the All England Club, the finals of Wimbledon is a blip on the radar when you’re talking about the World Cup final,” Pilson said. “It’s unfortunate, and it does hurt in the United States, where tennis has a significant audience.”Dates for the World Cup final have ranged from June 10 to July 30, and each has been on a Sunday except for the first tournament in Uruguay in 1930, played on a Wednesday, and the 1966 tournament in England, which finished on a Saturday at Wembley.The Wimbledon’s men’s singles final was scheduled for a Saturday through 1981. The World Cup final has twice been the same day as the men’s singles final, on July 8, 1990, in Rome, and on July 9, 2006, in Berlin. Those soccer matches started at 8 p.m. local time (2 p.m. EDT), about two hours after the tennis ended: Stefan Edberg’s 6-2, 6-2, 3-6, 3-6, 6-4 win over Boris Becker in 1990, and Federer’s 6-0, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (2), 6-3 win over Nadal in 2006.The roots of this year’s conflict go back six years. The All England Club announced in July 2012 that it would increase the time between the end of the French Open and the start of Wimbledon from two weeks to three starting in 2015, allowing players extra time to adjust to the switch from clay courts to grass.FIFA’s executive council announced World Cup kickoff times in December 2015.Wimbledon never had any intent to alter the start time of its final, traditionally about 2:10 p.m. local (9:10 a.m. EDT). Its large-screen videoboard on Henman Hill will remain tuned to tennis.Pressure for a shift would have increased had England beaten Croatia and advanced to its first final since winning the World Cup in 1966.“We’re very comfortable with the long-term view that we take,” said Richard Lewis, chief executive of the All England Club. “We’re not driven by short-term decisions, whether it be TV ratings or sponsorship. Wimbledon takes a long-term view. (The World Cup) is for this year. It’s a one-year happening. And for the future, we’ll still be at 2 o’clock on the Sunday. Nothing changes, from our point of view.”___Fendrich reported from London.___More AP World Cup coverage: The clash: World Cup, Wimbledon men’s finals could overlap by Howard Fendrich And Ronald Blum, The Associated Press Posted Jul 13, 2018 3:15 pm PDT Last Updated Jul 13, 2018 at 4:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Spectators attend the men’s singles quarterfinal tennis match between John Isner of the United States and Canada’s Milos Raonic, at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, Wednesday July 11, 2018.
