There have been reports of 4.5 inches (11 centimeters) northeast of downtown Charlotte.Gov. Roy Cooper urged people who went to work ahead of the heavy accumulations to go home early, saying “it’s going to get a little nasty out there.” Weather service meteorologist James Morrow says up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) could fall in central North Carolina before the snow blows offshore.The state Highway Patrol has responded to more than 500 collisions, and Charlotte police reported nearly 200 more by late afternoon, even though state roads have been treated with more than 2 million gallons (7.5 million liters) of anti-icing salt brine.___4:10 p.m.It’s getting very chilly in the Sunshine State as meteorologists predict temperatures could drop into the lower 20s in some spots overnight.Hard freeze warnings are in effect for the Panhandle and much of northern Florida.

Workers have also distributed nearly 6,200 gallons (23,400 liters) of chemicals and 1,800 gallons (6,800 liters) of salt. Other crews have distributed more than 240 tons (218 metric tons) of sand.As much as 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow is possible across South Carolina, with the highest snowfalls expected around Rock Hill.The weather prompted Gov. Henry McMaster to postpone his State of the State address scheduled Wednesday night until Jan. 24.___12:45 p.m.Tow truck driver Charles Prewitt says he worked all night trying to aid cars and trucks that ran off icy roads in southern Mississippi as a blast of cold air broke records in the South.Prewitt, who works for B&W Towing of Collins, said he’s gotten more than 20 calls for help, but couldn’t get to all of them. Problems included 18-wheel trucks that were sliding backwards down hills on a section of U.S. 49 between Jackson and Hattiesburg.A tow truck driver for three years, Prewitt says it’s hard for him just to reach calls.The University of Southern Mississippi canceled classes as temperatures dropped below 20 degrees (-7 Celsius) and ice coated some roads in Hattiesburg.Most major highways remain open in Mississippi, although the state Department of Transportation closed some bridges, including three major bridges along U.S. 90, Mississippi’s beachfront highway.___12:30 p.m.Icy runways have forced cancellation of morning flights at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.That’s just one example of how an arctic blast hitting the South is disrupting air travel.The need to de-ice planes is causing major delays at the world’s busiest airport, in Atlanta. About a quarter of the day’s 360 arrivals and departures have been canceled at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.And 90-minute delays are being reported in Memphis, Tennessee, another major hub in the U.S. air transportation system.___11:50 a.m.Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says on Twitter that he’s declared a state of emergency across the state “due to the winter weather and dangerous conditions.”In the brief statement on social media late Wednesday morning, the governor’s office says more than 1.5 million pounds (680,000 kilograms) of salt has been distributed around the state to use on roadways.The governor says 1,200 state transportation department employees are working “around the clock” as the state works to reopen shuttered roads and bridges around Louisiana.The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is urging people to only drive if absolutely necessary.___11:30 a.m.A Georgia Department of Transportation spokeswoman says icy conditions are persisting on many roadways, but all interstates were passable by late Wednesday morning.Agency spokeswoman Natalie Dale said crews were out working from south of Columbus, Georgia, up to the Tennessee border and about three-quarters of state roads were affected.She said it was “an all hands on deck situation.”With temperatures not expected to rise above freezing Wednesday a hard freeze overnight was likely, meaning icy conditions are expected to continue into Thursday she said.Dale said many side roads and neighborhood streets aren’t being treated and are icy and dangerous. State officials urged people to stay off the roads.She said people keep asking when Georgians “will get the all-clear.” She said that wouldn’t happen Wednesday.___11:05 a.m.Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said state government offices will remain closed Thursday in 83 of the state’s 159 counties.Deal said in a statement Wednesday that only essential employees would report to work in the 83 counties hard-hit by the wintry weather that swept across Georgia on Tuesday night.The governor said the decision was made on a recommendation from Georgia’s Emergency Operations Command.Deal said that ice is continuing to accumulate on Georgia roads since freezing temperatures were continuing Wednesday.___10:40 a.m.Many of Louisiana’s interstates are shuttered because of ice and snow that accumulated on roads and bridges overnight.The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is urging people to only drive if absolutely necessary.Among the closures Wednesday morning are parts of Interstate 49 which cuts through central Louisiana up to north Louisiana. In southern Louisiana, closures included Interstate 10 from Lafayette to near Slidell 170 miles away; Interstate 12 from Baton Rouge to near Covington 70 miles away; and all of Interstate 55, which runs from southeast Louisiana to the Mississippi state line.Every major interstate in the capital city of Baton Rouge was shut down Wednesday morning.State officials warn that temperatures likely won’t warm enough during the day to clear many major thoroughfares of ice.___10:20 a.m.There was snow on the beach in Mississippi, and residents were being urged to save energy by avoiding bathing.Many rural Mississippians rely on electricity to heat their homes, and the frigid weather was pushing power demand sky-high. Cooperative Energy, which generates and transmits power for 11 cooperatives in southern and western Mississippi, was appealing for customers to lower their thermostat and hold off on showers or washing clothes.The National Weather Service says Wednesday morning’s low of 10 degrees (-12 Celsius) in Jackson was the lowest in Mississippi’s capital city since 1996. Greenwood’s low of 5 degrees (-15 Celsius) was the coldest reading there since 1989.The state Department of Transportation says at least some roads are icy in all 82 of the state’s counties, and traffic was struggling to cross slick hills in some locations.A thin layer snow is even lying on the beach in Biloxi.___10:20 a.m.Snow has moved into South Carolina and Gov. Henry McMaster has postponed his first State of the State address.The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings or winter weather advisories for most of the state Wednesday, except for the south coast.Forecasters said less than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow was expected in central South Carolina. That forecast ranged up to 6 inches (15centimeters) of snow in the Rock Hill area. Lesser amounts were expected in the northwestern and northeastern parts of the state.McMaster’s first State of the State address, scheduled for Wednesday evening, was rescheduled for Jan. 24.The South Carolina Senate also canceled its Wednesday meeting.Many schools and government offices were closed or delayed in western and central South Carolina.___8:50 a.m.Icy conditions are hampering travel as far south as the Gulf Coast, where stretches of a major freeway have been closed.Louisiana transportation officials say Interstate 10 is closed in multiple parishes because of icy patches, and the same highway is closed across Alabama’s Mobile Bay because of ice with temperatures in the teens.Traffic along the coast was being diverted to U.S. 90, but that highway also was covered with ice in spots. A traffic camera showed an 18-wheeler stuck on an ice-covered Cochrane Bridge in Mobile.Forecaster say temperatures will rise to the upper 30s along the coast Wednesday and sunshine should help clear away the ice.___8:50 a.m.Snow moved into North Carolina and weather forecasters are promising cold temperatures will follow.The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings or winter weather advisories for almost all of North Carolina for Wednesday.The weather service said from 3 inches (8 centimeters) to 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow was possible in western North Carolina on Wednesday.Up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow was possible in the central part of the state.Schools were closed or delayed across the state, as were local government operations.Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency Tuesday, which helps ease the movement of supplies to areas that might be hard hit from the snow.Temperatures are expected to be below freezing Wednesday night, making black ice likely Thursday morning.___8 a.m.The frigid air that brought snow and ice to the South has ushered in record-breaking low temperatures for New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as well as other cities in the South.The National Weather Service said it was 21 degrees (-6 Celsius) before dawn Wednesday in New Orleans. That breaks the city’s record low temperature for the date, which was 23 degrees (-5 Celsius) set in 1977.Baton Rouge also is seeing record-breaking temperatures. It was 15 degrees (-4 Celsius) there before dawn, breaking the record of 18 degrees (-8 Celsius) from 1977.In Mississippi, the temperature in Hattiesburg dipped to 13 degrees (-11 Celsius) early Wednesday, breaking the previous record low of 14 (-10 Celsius). In the capital city of Jackson Wednesday morning, the temperature was hovering just above the city’s record low of 10 degrees (-12 Celsius).___6:45 a.m.Major delays are being reported at the world’s busiest airport in Atlanta.The Federal Aviation Administration said early Wednesday that snow and ice have prompted officials to delay takeoffs. Some arriving flights also are being delayed more than an hour.Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport said in a statement last night that crews were de-icing airplanes as wintry weather moved into metro Atlanta.The flight tracking service early Wednesday reported 90-minute delays at the airport in Memphis, Tennessee, a major hub in the U.S. air transportation system.___2:20 a.m.A wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain has blanketed a large swath of the South, trailed by a blast of frigid air that could approach record low temperatures.By Tuesday evening, steadily dropping snow was forcing cars on Interstate 75 about 15 miles (25 kilometers) northwest of Atlanta to slow considerably amid scattered fender benders.National Water Service meteorologist Ryan Willis in Peachtree City says the forecast calls for 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 4 centimeters) of snow in metro Atlanta through Wednesday morning. Forecasters said travel could be difficult because of below-zero (-18 Celsius) wind chills.The same slippery conditions and dangerous wind chills swept across several southern states Tuesday, shutting down interstates, triggering highway crashes, closing airport runways and prompting widespread school closings.The system was expected to push into the Carolinas overnight.last_img read more

Zumiez Reopens Columbia Mall Store Four Months after Fatal Shootings

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_imgZumiez, a Columbia Mall skateboard and snowboard apparel store, has reopened nearly four months after it was the scene of a double homicide of two mall employees during an apparent shooting rampage. The store has been closed since Jan. 25 when, police said, Tyler Johnson 25, and Briana Benlolo 21, were killed by Darion Aguilar, 19, who went on a shooting spree at the Maryland mall after entering the dressing room of the store and assembling a shotgun hidden in his backpack. Aguilar died at the scene, police said, from an apparently self-inflicted shotgun wound.The mall reopened a few days later, but the Zumiez store remained boarded up until May 19. The store has been remodeled. But even after several memorials and vigils in honor of the victims, Zumiez managers contacted the victims’ families before reopening.Zumiez officials said in a statement “We all continue to keep the victims and their families in our hearts and together remember and honor them in many ways,” according to WBAL TV.As part of the remodeling, store officials said, “quietly recognizes Brianna and Tyler with two simple tiles that bear their initials: ‘B’ and ‘T.’ ” Reaction among mall customers to the reopening was mixed. Tony Ramelmeir, 17, a Columbia who had just left the mall before the shooting, said he understands the need for it to be opened. “Maybe it [should have been] closed for a year or two or a whole season, but if they feel it’s the right time then it’s the right time,” said Ramelmeir. Karra Winnard 22, a Marriottsville resident, said she is a regular shopper at the mall and is happy to see the store open again. “I definitely think it needed to be reopened. I think for the store’s sake they couldn’t keep it closed forever because something happened, but I’m kind of glad it’s reopened. I was sad when it was closed, but understood why,” said Winnard. Following an investigation, Howard County police concluded that Aguilar was a troubled young man. Police said that Aguilar said in a journal that he had been suffering from what he believed were symptoms of mental illness. Police said he was fixated on the 1999 shooting rampage at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., a shooting rampage that he wanted to emulate. According to, two memorial funds were set up in honor of the shooting victims. For more information go to read more

Marshadow Is The Newest Mythical Pokemon Being Added InGame

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_img If you foolishly thought you knew everything there is to know about Pokemon, you’re going to want to think again. There’s a new mythical Pokemon in town, and its name is Marshadow. The new Pokemon has had the rumor mill up in arms over the last few months. But it’s finally official, and we can finally welcome Marshadow to the world, with a brand new trailer that not only shows Marshadow off but gives you a glimpse at what might be coming in the future for this rare Pokemon.Marshadow won’t be just another average Pokemon, however. The Pokemon Company has already made it very clear that you won’t be able to capture it during normal gameplay. But there aren’t any details just yet on how, exactly, you will be able to add it to your collection. What we do know about Marshadow is that it’s going to be a dual-type fighting and ghost Pokemon that won’t evolve into another Pokemon or evolve from another Pokemon, though it kindles images of Litwick and similar creatures.It does have a special Z-Move, which is the Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike, which, according to Bulbapedia “punches and kicks the target consecutively with full force.” Perhaps we’ll see some of that Z-Move on display in the upcoming Pokemon movie that’s scheduled for a July release in Japan, called Pokemon: I Choose You!, as yet unconfirmed for a Western release.Marshadow is an interesting new addition to the Pokemon family, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens when it’s finally available for us to check out. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer below for a glimpse at what we might be able to expect from this dark and diminutive Pokemon.

Risqué romance and Austenprose

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_imgWe have come a long way since Jane Austen first published Pride and Prejudice in 1813 and the British literati heaved sighs soaked in 19th century restraint-laced romance. Long walks in the countryside, manners and mannerisms, old fashioned pleasantries interspersed with superheated battle of wits had to make up for the inability of the author, or the reader, to indulge in sexually explicit scenes. But wasn’t there an air of overcharged eroticism engulfing all of Austen’s, or even the Bronte sisters’ novels that still make them such breathless reads? Why do we keep revisiting their relatively ‘tame’ narratives, if there wasn’t the aura of something throbbing and lurking under the soft domestic strokes of their disciplined literary flourishes? Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The vintage British awkwardness, once a virtue, has now been supplanted by a risqué approach so brazen that publishing houses have come up with ‘sexed up’ versions of 19th century classics, particularly Pride and Prejudice, that has completed 200 years since its publication. All thanks to the phenomenon called Fifty Shades of Grey—a three-volume saga by the 50-year-old British author EL James (real name Erika Leonard) of a virginal Anastasia Steele who’s enlisted as a ‘sexual slave’ by the Seattle billionaire Christian Grey. Like a spruced up avatar of Charlotte Bronte’s Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixJane Eyre, Mr Grey, much like his literary predecessor Mr Rochester, has a room dedicated to his excesses of sexuality, in this case, of bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism.Although separated by two centuries, Pride and Prejudice shares much with Fifty Shades, which include the classic female fiction tropes of fairy tale romances. The medieval stereotype – of the chaste and very young (but now willing, a merciful 20th century amendment) heroine, who is overpowered by an older man, impeccable in character, strength as well as social stature, but proud and condescending – remains intact. While Austen unravels her plot in the verdant fields and manor houses of Pemberley, James takes her narrative to fast-paced American cities such as Seattle and Washington. While Darcy is torn by his moral uprightness that clashes with his repressed sexuality, Grey is battered by his sexual overdrive and alterity, which are counterpoised to an inner kernel of societally approved definition of what is normal and what is right. In a way, Christian Grey is what Fitzwilliam Darcy has transformed into after 200 years of literary and cultural reimagination.Of course, literary prudes and cultural snobs can dismiss such an odious comparison as total hogwash, saying that the narrative merits of Austenprose outshine by a million times the hazy, neon-lit, pathetically consumerist sex scenes of James’ Fifty Shades. That the latter started off as a ‘fan fiction’ self-perpetuating on the sidelines of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga is another interesting twist to the story. That one of the best-selling books of our times has had such an unoriginal origin is a development that sheds more light on how we read and stumble upon works of fiction these days, more than the literary merit of the particular book itself.Like Pride and Prejudice, Fifty Shades too has reached a cult status, although one cannot be sure if it will stand the test of time and lure readers 200 years into the future that Jane Austen’s novels are guaranteed to do. Another thread linking the two polar extremes is the genre of the chick-lit, the books on life, romance and the urban woman exemplified by the series Sex and the City. Yet, unlike Carrie Bradshaw and her friends, who are women of supreme independence, the typical chick-lit protagonists tend to fall back on the tried and tested tropes of marriage and fulfilment of love. That is where Fifty Shades of Grey meets Pride and Prejudice, in its continuation of the ‘manhunt’ by the willing women of our times.last_img read more

Cleaner Alternative

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

As the world prepares for cleaner sources of energy, India is ready to reduce its reliance on coal and other forms of non-renewable energy, on the condition that developed nations provide the necessary aid. The process to avoid fossil fuels that create harmful emissions has already begun. Government authorities also told media that developed nations have been approached for financial and technical support. They further added that there are a few deals already in place. However, they will have to wait for these deals to fructify to begin the process of adopting renewable clean energy. Authorities also made it clear that wind and solar energy were now on their priority list. The government has decided to not allot further funds towards the expansion of coal usage but rather redirect them on creating renewable energy. India’s key negotiator, Ajay Mathur, spoke at the United Nations Climate conference confirming the above points. He accorded that India would focus on wind and solar energy and that coal would only be a backup in case there is a requirement of more energy resources. Ajay Mathur later briefed the media on the possibility of getting more funds to develop the necessary technology. He spoke of global warming being an alarming issue. Meanwhile, a lot of developed nations are showing interest in helping developing nations achieve this target. However, the interest appears superficial, as there are no real commitments from any nation regarding the same. At the Paris conference, countries debated and discussed pressing issues such as global warming, the minimum limit set up for the same and a clear timeline to achieve those targets. India’s Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar had earlier spoken to the media, saying that India posed no obstacles and would commit to doing its bit. Hence, it would be safe to say, India does not live under the illusion that climate change is a myth. India is one of the worst affected countries when it comes to climate change. In fact, India has taken greater initiatives than the US to reduce carbon emissions.Countries across the globe have committed to creating a new international climate agreement by the conclusion of the Paris Conference. The attempt by the more affluent nations to embrace an agenda for climate change ignores the principle of Common but Differentiated Responsibility (CDR) that was evolved at the 1992 Rio conference and 2005 Kyoto conference. This principle states that, it was recognised that stupendous rise in carbon emissions had been the result of 150 years of industrialisation by the West. The logic was that greater responsibility lay with the West to clean up the mess they created. However, the process to achieve this great goal still looks rather distant without any firm commitment from any developed nation. read more

The study found PEM was significantly more precise at identifying benign and cancerous lesions, in what scientists call “positive predictive value” or “PPV,” therefore reducing the number of unnecessary biopsies.  A common physician complaint regarding the use of breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is its tendency to identify suspicious lesions, requiring biopsies which ultimately are found to be benign. This finding is a welcome outcome for women and physicians looking for ways to reduce the patient trauma associated with biopsies and for payors looking to reduce the costs associated with unnecessary procedures. The 388-woman study showed that PEM not only demonstrated a six percent improvement in specificity at comparably high sensitivity, but also that PEM had 31 fewer unnecessary biopsies and 26 percent higher PPV than breast MRI. These results are also particularly significant for those women who cannot tolerate an MR exam and require an alternate imaging tool.”The results of this study mean that not only do physicians have an additional, powerful tool to help treat breast cancer, but also that PEM is a legitimate and better alternative for the 16 percent of women who cannot tolerate MR due to claustrophobia, metallic implants, body habitus or gadolinium reaction,” said Wendie Berg, M.D., Ph.D. and principal investigator for the trial.PEM scanners are high-resolution breast positron emission tomography (PET) systems that can show the location as well as the metabolic phase of a lesion. This information is critical in determining whether a lesion is malignant and influences the course of treatment. Other imaging systems, such as mammography and ultrasound, show only the location, not the metabolic phase.The NIH-sponsored multisite study (NIH grant 5R44CA103102) examined women with newly-diagnosed breast cancer. Patients were accrued from six leading clinical centers across the country: ARS Johns Hopkins Green Spring, Boca Raton Community Hospital, Scripps Clinic-Scripps Green Hospital, University of North Carolina, University of Southern California Norris Cancer Center and Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Police officer shot dead in Brazils largest slum

Posted On Aug 18 2019 by

first_img 0 Comments   Share   RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – A police officer was slain while on foot patrol in Brazil’s largest slum, military police said Friday.Diego Bruno Barbosa Henriques was shot and killed overnight Thursday as he and three fellow officers patrolled Rio de Janeiro’s sprawling Rocinha slum.An operation was under way to apprehend Henriques’ assailants, and G1, the internet portal of the Globo television network, reported one suspect had been detained. The suspect was carrying a 9-millimeter pistol, the same weapon used against Henriques, the report said. Bottoms up!

Don Shooter shows health improvement How men can have a healthy 2019 The body Henriques, who had been on the force for about a year, was buried later Friday.Police and soldiers took over Rocinha in November as part of a large-scale program to restore the rule of law in Rio slums long under the control of heavily armed drug gangs and largely off-limits to authorities.The government’s reasserted control over the shantytown is seen as strategic as Rio prepares to host the 2014 soccer World Cup and 2016 Olympics. Rocinha is on the road that links the main Olympic village with other event sites inside the city proper.In a Twitter post, Rio state Gov. Sergio Cabral called Friday’s slaying “a desperate action” and pledged that “there will be no backsliding in pacified communities.“The difference is that until two years ago, the police was the invader. Now, the bandits are the invaders,” Cabral’s post read. “Peace is our objective for all the areas of our state.”Another police officer was shot and killed in Rocinha in April.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Jetstar Pacific changes logo to avoid confusion

Posted On Aug 17 2019 by

first_imgThe Vietnamese-based budget airline was called Pacific Airlines until 2007, when a 23-per-cent stake was sold to Australia’s Qantas Airways Ltd. As part of a branding shake-up, the state-owned carrier was renamed Jetstar Pacific Airlines Joint-Stock Aviation Co and given a logo similar to Jetstar Airways Pty, an Australian budget airline launched by Qantas. Previously, Qantas has not raised any objections to Jetstar Pacific’s use of the orange-star logo. Speculation has mounted that the order by the CAAV stems from opposition to the Australian stake in the airline by elements in the Vietnamese government, which still holds 73 per cent.

first_img 60 Comments   Share   GLENDALE, Ariz. — It wasn’t exactly déjà vu, but man, did what we saw Monday night at University of Phoenix Stadium feel familiar.The Arizona Cardinals started quickly, sputtered in the middle and folded late in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in front of 65,102 fans and an audience of millions on Monday Night Football.Carson Palmer led the Cardinals (1-2) to a score on their first drive — an efficient eight-play, 82-yard jaunt that ended in a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Brown. In a half they thoroughly dominated, the Cardinals went to the locker room at halftime tied 7-7.Missed opportunity.The teams traded scores in the third quarter. Prescott hit Dez Bryant on a 15-yard touchdown on which the receiver dragged a gaggle of Arizona defenders over the goal line to give the Cowboys their first lead. Five minutes and 18 seconds later, Palmer delivered his second picturesque touchdown pass of the game, this one to Larry Fitzgerald from 15 yards out to tie the game at 14-14.Then the familiar theme of allowing touchdowns in the fourth quarter — as happened in the Cardinals’ season-opening loss to Detroit — popped up again. Prescott hit Brice Butler, who beat cornerback Justin Bethel, on a 37-yard strike with 11:52 to play.Dawson connected on a 37-yard field goal to pull the Cardinals to within four at 21-17, but the Prescott-to-Butler connection struck again on a 53-yard pass that set up Elliott’s 8-yard touchdown to ice the game for Dallas with just under five minutes to play.Another familiar issue was present all night — Arizona’s inability to protect Palmer or open up holes for backs in the running game. Palmer was sacked six times — three alone by DeMarcus Lawrence, who feasted on the right side of the Cardinals’ offensive line manned by guard Evan Boehm and Veldheer. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Palmer, who posted impressive statistics nonetheless (29-of-48 for 322 yards and two TDs), pinned much of the blame on himself.“A couple of times, I didn’t get the ball out early or get the ball out fast,” he said. “That is a front you want to get the ball out fast on. You don’t want to be in situations where you are just holding it and holding it.“There was a number of times where I got to the third and fourth read and they did a great job. There were also times that I just held on to it too long.”Yes, there were a couple of times Palmer was culpable, but he can’t continue to a) take the physical punishment he endured Monday and b) cover for a patchwork, ineffective line.“Block better,” a direct Bruce Arians said after the game when asked what the line needs to do to improve. When asked if that was possible, he was direct again.“There ain’t nobody else in there, we’ve only got seven guys that are healthy so they’re the only ones who could play.”The Cardinals played without guard Mike Iupati and tackle D.J. Humphries and lost guard Alex Boone late in the contest with an injury. Daniel Munyer finished up at left guard for Boone. If Iupati, Humphries and Boone are unable to go Sunday against San Francisco, Munyer would likely become the Cardinals’ eighth different starting lineman in four games. Arizona’s defense forced a Dallas three-and-out and then methodically moved down the field again. On 3rd-and-5 from the Dallas 10-yard line, Palmer hooked up with Brown again, except this one wouldn’t count. A holding penalty on right tackle Jared Veldheer wiped out the play, and the Cardinals had to settle for a field goal attempt from Phil Dawson.What should have been a 36-yard consolation prize turned into a big pile of nothing as Dawson missed wide right — his third miss in as many weeks and a match of his total of misses from last season.Missed opportunity.The Cowboys (2-1) went three-and-out again and Dallas punter Chris Jones uncorked a 29-yard punt that gave the Cardinals possession at their own 44. They didn’t do anything with it.In fact, Arizona would manage only 19 yards in its next four possessions. You couldn’t expect Dallas to dilly-dally all night long offensively, and it didn’t.On a 3rd-and-1 from the Cowboys’ own 15-yard line, a blitzing Tyrann Mathieu missed a tackle on Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who escaped and uncorked a 30-yard run. The drive ultimately led to nothing on the scoreboard but woke the dormant Dallas offense up. They’d get on the scoreboard with 1:16 to go in the first half on an acrobatic running touchdown from quarterback Dak Prescott. That’s not exactly a recipe for success. – / 32center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) looks at Dallas Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence after being sacked during the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz.

Moodys sees 33 growth rate in Q1 as credit positive

Posted On Aug 9 2019 by

first_imgMoody’s Investors Service said that the 3.3 per cent annual growth rate of the first quarter announced last Tuesday is a credit positive for Cypriot banks, as it strengthens borrowers’ capacity to repay restructured distressed debt.“Additionally, the growth will support real estate collateral values on which Cypriot banks rely heavily for most lending, and increase new lending opportunities that will support banks’ declining net interest income,” the rating company said on Monday, citing a report prepared by its Limassol-based analyst Melina Skouridou.Moody’s, which in 2015 assigned Cyprus a sovereign credit rating of B1, four notches below investment level, said that the accelerated economic activity is expected to help improve companies’ cash flows and improve labour market conditions.The overall non-performing loans ratio in the banking system stood in January at 47 per cent according to the latest central bank figures. In both corporate and household non-performing loans, the figure stood at 56 per cent. The unemployment rate dropped last year — when the economy expanded 2.8 per cent — to 13 per cent from 14.9 per cent in 2015, after peaking at 16.1 per cent the year before. The finance ministry said in April that the jobless rate is expected to further drop to 11.5 per cent this year with the economy expected to grow 2.9 per cent.“Ultimately, the higher growth will enhance borrowers’ debt affordability and repayment capacity, facilitating loan restructurings, particularly in the small and midsize enterprise sector, which is more vulnerable to economic changes and benefits from an economic recovery, albeit with a lag,” Moody’s said, adding that the company expects the Cypriot banks’ asset quality to further improve.The non-performing loans of Bank of Cyprus stood at €11bn or 54.8 per cent in December. Those of Hellenic Bank were €2.3bn or 56.6 per cent at the end of the year, while that of the Cooperative Central Bank stood at 59.8 per cent or €7.4bn in September.“Cypriot banks will also benefit from stronger real estate prices, which will buttress collateral values, containing the need for additional provisions on existing non-performing loans,” Moody’s said. It added that the Bank of Cyprus will benefit the most from real estate price recovery as it has the “largest direct exposure” to real estate.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Cabinet approves mechanism for decrees facilitating privatisations

Posted On Aug 9 2019 by

first_imgThe Cabinet on Wednesday approved a mechanism to issue executive decrees relating to the privatisation of semi-government organisations (SGOs), on the basis of a road map approved in December 2013.Organisations to be privatised and fall within the remit of responsibility of the ministry of finance are; the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (Cyta), the Cyprus Stock Exchange (CySE) and Cyprus Forest Industries, an official statement from the Cabinet said.It is further added that the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC), the Cyprus State Fair Authority and the Pancyprian Company of Bakers falls within the remit of responsibility of the ministry of energy, commerce, industry and tourism.At the same time it noted that that “the method, extent and process of these organisations’ privatization would be determined at a later stage”.The approval of a privatisation plan is a condition included in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Cyprus signed with its international lenders in order to receive a bailout in late March 2013.On December 5, 2013 the Cabinet had approved privatisation road map aiming at securing €1.4 billion from the sell-off. The detailed programme provides for the privatisation of Cyta and the Cyprus Port Authority by the end of 2015 and the selling of the Electricity Authority by September 2017, as well as divestment in four other organisations.Workers unions are fiercely opposed to the plan.
