Cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs speaks with the media on Feb. 4 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorUrban Meyer has constantly stressed that he doesn’t intend to redshirt players at Ohio State, but sometimes there simply isn’t room for playing time.For the incoming OSU recruiting class, though, the chance to get on the field could be present early and often, but that’s not because of pure play by the players in front of them.After OSU officially signed 27 new players, capped by 23 official commitments on national signing day on Wednesday, Meyer said there are at least four veteran Buckeyes whose playing careers are likely over because of injury.“I think Ron Tanner and Armani (Reeves) are two off the top of my head that won’t be able to play anymore,” Meyer said Wednesday. “(Trey) Johnson can’t, (Devan) Bogard can’t.”Tanner, Reeves and Bogard were all heading into their senior seasons, and all three battled injuries during the fall. Meyer said Reeves was out because of health problems stemming from concussions, while Bogard underwent his third ACL surgery this fall.Johnson, a sophomore linebacker, learned he wouldn’t be able to play anymore in early January.All four players come from the defensive side of the ball, including two linebackers, which is a position Meyer said the Buckeyes recruited well this year. According to ESPN, OSU signed the No. 11 inside linebacker in the nation in Nick Conner, who is already enrolled, and two top-10 outside linebackers in Jerome Baker (No. 7) and Justin Hilliard (No. 1).“You look at these three guys, Nick, Justin and Joe, they’re the exact kind of body types, mentality, people that you want,” Meyer said of the fresh crop of linebackers.While the Buckeyes have known for about a month that Johnson wouldn’t be playing, and likely had an idea that Bogard would struggle to return to the field, the news of Tanner and Reeves’ career-ending injuries had yet to be publicly discussed before Wednesday.Co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash said the news that Reeves and Tanner would be out came up after the season was over.“It was a shock, a surprise, you hate to see it for those guys because they’re great guys, great team players, did a lot for us during their career here,” Ash said Wednesday. “But it was just something that I guess by the medical staff, determined to be the best for them here.”Even though the news was late, OSU already had its eyes on new defensive backs, and signed five on Wednesday.Cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs said all five soon-to-be OSU freshmen will “absolutely” compete for playing time right away.“We need fast, speed, long guys. We got great guys,” Coombs said Wednesday. “It’s a great position of need for us in the defense that we’re playing right now, you gotta have great corners when you play press, man-to-man.”Coombs, who is also OSU’s special teams coordinator, said the freshmen defensive backs’ “first path” onto the field will come in the kicking game. After that, Coombs said it’s important for them to learn OSU’s style of play.“The next thing they are going to learn to do is play press man-to-man and go out there and function effectively in that spot,” he said. “I do believe the nickel position should always be a corner because there is a lot of man-to-man coverage involved. So some of them are going to play nickel.”With only four of the 27 new recruits — including defensive back Jamel Dean — already enrolled, the returning Buckeyes plus their four new teammates are set to open spring practice in April.After the rest of the class reports in the summer, OSU is set to open its 2015 season against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va. read more

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Hall of Fame former NBA player who won six championships and transformed the game with his patented “sky hook,” underwent quadruple coronary bypass surgery last month. When the protests grew angry in Baltimore over Freddie Gray’s death, Abdul-Jabbar’s heart was broken.A voice for the disenfranchised much of his life, he has spoken or written about social injustices with eloquence and perspective. For Time magazine, Abdul-Jabbar, still recovering from heart surgery, weighed in with strong, insightful positions that show how in tune he is — and how other athletes can follow his lead.The former center started his essay by writing: “The curfew has been lifted in Baltimore, and now all of God’s children are once again tucked back in the snug routine of their daily lives. The black temper tantrum is over, America. We can all go back to watching Castle boyishly charm his way through murder mysteries. Order is restored.“Except, as Sportin’ Life says in Porgy and Bess, ‘It ain’t necessarily so.’”Abdul-Jabbar used sports lingo to make the point that more uprisings could be on the horizon and that the impact of the uprising will not end any time soon. “What happened in Baltimore isn’t just a one-and-done situation,” he wrote. “This wasn’t just a slight sprain in the ankle that we’ll be able to walk off by morning. This was a violently shattered bone that will have America limping forward on crutches for months to come, maybe even years.“One thing that history has taught us is that civil unrest is rarely just about what incites the incident. From what information the public has been given, Freddie Gray’s death seems like a malignant cocktail of negligence and abuse, and the charges brought against the six officers seem to confirm that. But we’ve seen this all before — many times.”Significantly, like many, including the protesters indicated, the response to the death of Gray is bigger than that one horrible action, Abdul-Jabbar conveyed. And he rightfully expresses worry over the idea that the outrage will flicker and not rage.“The Baltimore uprising isn’t just about Freddie Gray. The image of the cops carrying him, his legs dangling uselessly, his neck crooked awkwardly is a visual manifestation of the impotence many African Americans have felt over the past year as death after death of black people at the hands of police keep adding up,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “After each death there is the usual flurry of outrage, protests, political promises, celebrity tweeting, and condemnation of protestors. Then nothing happens until the next death, which is often tragically close behind. About 70 unarmed Blacks have been killed by police between 1999 and 2014. The only thing that seems to change is that the list of the dead keeps getting longer.”Abdul-Jabbar was not well-liked by the media during his playing days because he saw through them. He saw most of them as vultures seeking inflammatory information or personal info that was no one’s business. So, he often was described as “surly” or “petulant.” The reality was that he was insightful and a deep thinker who was intellectually superior to the reporters who covered him.That mind — and his courage to speak out on racial injustice — came through when he wrote: “Baltimore is the most recent in a long, frustrating line of protests that … reveal a larger pattern of systemic injustice. For African Americans, it feels as if we are all gathered together in the path of giant steamroller. We shout up at the driver to put on the brakes, but he keeps shouting for us to get out of the way. But there’s no place to go. We keep backing up and backing up. In Baltimore, it felt as though everyone’s back was against the wall, and there was no place to back up to anymore. If shouting doesn’t get the driver’s attention, maybe something more drastic will.“Baltimore protestors weren’t just expressing their anger over the treatment of Freddie Gray; they were expressing their frustration over living in economic circumstances that makes them seem less than human to those in power. Worse, they have little hope that these circumstances will change.”Not many people — forget about an athlete — express such keen insight, especially considering his fame and wealth have him as far physically removed as one could be from Baltimore. But Abdul-Jabbar clearly is connected. “What’s even more frustrating for African Americans across America witnessing the events is the blatant attempt of some in the media to portray this as (1) the result of “thugs” who want to exploit Gray’s death to stock up on some free TVs and (2) an anomaly that doesn’t represent America,” he wrote. “Both attitudes exhibit the kind of racial profiling that is at the heart of the problem in the first place.”He ended his nearly 1,100-word essay with a history lesson. “America was born out of protest. We felt economically suppressed and politically repressed, and we changed things. Slaves weren’t freed by benevolent leaders wanting to do the right thing. No one gave the American worker better and safer conditions out of gratitude for a job well done. Vietnam veterans didn’t get their benefits from an Agent-Orange-denying government by sitting at home waiting patiently. Each time, Americans took to the streets to be heard.“I suggest we all pay attention to what’s happening in Baltimore, because it’s very likely that unless the economic and injustice issues raised there are addressed in a meaningful way across the country, we will be seeing many more Baltimores throughout the election season.”With that, Abdul-Jabbar threw down the figurative mic. The man who perfected the “sky hook” had scored a slam dunk. read more

first_imgChang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley Street Passing a two-year sentence at the Old Bailey, Judge Philip Katz told him  he could see no other reason for him doing it “other than greed”. “There was a gravy train passing by and you wanted to jump on it,” the judge said.  “This is, in many ways, a tragic case because, as you realise, the scale of this fraud and the fact that you have denied it in the face of overwhelming  evidence means there is only one way I can deal with you – it is to sentence a hard-working doctor to prison. He added: “You got greedy. You were living an ordinary and respectable life, you come from a respectable background of professional people who, I expect, are horrified to witness what happened as a result of the choices you have now made.”  Chang, who was born in Hong Kong, sparked anger among animal-lovers in 2009 after he was photographed sitting on the head of an elephant he had shot in  Zimbabwe. He defended killing the beasts, insisting it helped local people, and survived the public backlash to keep his job. But the latest scandal is almost certain to end his medical career for good and he has recently been scraping a living with driving jobs and by working  in a restaurant. The court heard Chang systematically defrauded insurance companies by billing them for physiotherapy sessions which never took place. The scam lasted for two years until one of the insurance companies became suspicious about the number of invoices coming from Proteus Healthcare.  A big game-hunting Harley Street doctor who faked invoices worth almost £200,000 for non-existent treatment has been jailed for two years. Dr Benjamin Chang, 57, was at the heart of a controversy after he was photographed giving the thumbs up next to a dead elephant during a hunting trip in Africa in 2009. His career is now in ruins after he was found guilty of a two-year scam against insurance companies by billing them for non-existent physiotherapy  sessions. Chang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley Street.  There was a gravy train passing by and you wanted to jump on itJudge Philip Katz Chang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley StreetCredit:Ed Willcox Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Their investigations revealed Proteus was being run by Dr Chang and the physiotherapist supposedly providing the treatment did not even exist. Prosecutor David Povall said Chang was carrying out the scam “to enrich himself” and pay off his debts to his family. Mr Povall said: “The police found dozens of examples of cases in which Benjamin Chang had supported claims from Proteus Healthcare for physiotherapy. “They seized Dr Chang’s computer server and found dozens and dozens of  Proteus invoices for named claimants purportedly signed by Helen Preston. “What the Crown is suggesting is that Proteus Healthcare is not a business  that provides physiotherapy – it is a business that provides invoices for  physiotherapy. “Dr Chang knew that these invoices were false, that there was no physiotherapy or not the amount being claimed for.” Chang, of Mill Hill, north London, denied fraud by false representation. last_img read more

first_imgTHEnergy reports that more external investors examine rental and PPA models for solar-diesel-hybrid power plants. “Remote mines are often perfectly suited for solar-diesel-hybrid power plants, because they possess the necessary land, have a high load during the day and are challenged by high electricity prices from diesel generators. Regularly solar is up to 70% less expensive than electricity from diesel generators. Given that many mining companies have faced financial issues for the last years, the main bottleneck is financing. The investment for solar plants has to be made when the plant is built, that means before the first MWh of electricity is produced. Existing diesel generators often are rented with the fuel being the main cost driver. The fuel has to be paid when it is consumed, i.e., the expenses are spread over the lifetime of the mine.”External investors that are already familiar with renewable energy can play an important role in closing this gap. Various types of external investors have already entered the renewable energy business. The development is mainly driven by the low risk of the investment as solar energy is technically mature and generates predictable income, especially if the market risks are covered by feed-in-tariffs or long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) to a large extent. This is the main difference for solar-diesel-systems at remote mining sites. Even if there is a long-term PPA in place, the counterparty risk is substantial due to the fact that normally the mine is the only possible off-taker of the electricity in remote locations. If the mine does not fulfill the contract, e.g., if it has to file for insolvency, the generated electricity cannot be sold easily.The THEnergy study Solar-diesel-hybrid power plants at mines: Opportunities for external investors shows several solutions to mitigate the risk for external investors. A trend to mobilize solar solutions is observed. Solar panels are mounted to sub-structures of the mounting-system and containerized in a next step. The costs for dismantling the solar plant and reinstalling it in different locations are decreased. From the financial perspective risk can be mitigated by a higher rental rate or electricity price during the first years of operation.One solution is that the mine pays during the first years a price that is equivalent to the price of electricity from the diesel generators. After the pay-off period of the solar plant the power price or rental rate is lowered substantially and the mining company and the investor share the additional cost savings of the project. In any case the rental company or power provider has to perform a resource-based and market-based due diligence of the mining operations.In another scenario the mining company co-invests in the solar power plant and assumes more liability for the market risks. Finally, the external investor tries to close contracts in which the parent company is the contract partner or guarantees for the fulfillment of the rental or power purchase agreementFirst rental and PPA solutions are already available in the market. A growing number of solar companies and investors see the mining industry as a reliable partner for rental or PPA models. “This development is considerably likely to accelerate the extension of solar applications at mines”, expects Dr. Thomas Hillig, founder of THEnergy.Picture source: CRONIMET Mining Power Solutions GmbHlast_img read more

first_imgMore than 190 million Valentine cards are given each year and more than $13.2 billion is spent on that day worldwide. One hundred-ninety-six-million roses are specially produced for the 14 February, while a respectable 14 per cent of women sends flowers to themselves, not to mention a surprising 53 per cent of women in a relationship who would consider ending it if they didn’t get something for Valentine’s Day. Let’s pretend we didn’t see the percentage of women that buy flowers for themselves, and read through this again: “Fifty-three per cent of women in a relationship would consider ending it if they didn’t get something for Valentine’s Day?” Is Valentine’s Day such an important celebration for women that it would determine the course of a relationship when the polls prove that only 13 per cent of men take an interest in it? Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly a ‘manly’ celebration. This red, heart-shaped, floral and teddy bear-ish day with the smell of chocolate dominating the air is usually dreaded and bemoaned by the boys, with 62 per cent saying they honestly forget it even exists. How do the Greek Australians feel about it, though? We went on and asked:“I’m usually swamped with work. I hardly ever have time to rest, let alone make plans on what could be a random weekday,” Apostolos, 37, tells Neos Kosmos.“OK, this time it’s on a Saturday. We could spend the night at home if she wants.”“The panic-attacked hordes of people out there will most likely give us a headache. The lines will be too long and I’m no teenager,” he clarifies. Michalis, 27 and single, is not very enthusiastic either. “It’s a waste of grey matter. Just like that stupid 50 Shades of Grey film that’s sold-out on this stupid day. What’s wrong with humanity?”Jim, 31, married, isn’t Valentine-friendly at all and hold his reservations, to say the least.“Since when are we Greeks into Valentine’s Day celebrations? This is all commercial crap,” he says.“If you love your woman you show it every day. Be a good partner, husband and father. Be there like a man. No teddy bear can replace that.”He seems to have a point.Niko, on the other hand, is a 22-year-old single student who actually believes in the existence of the day. “I think the day has very interesting roots in both theology and history, however, like most religious celebrations it seems to have become rather commercial, and even though in Greece the day was not associated with romance it now has been superseded by the globalised Valentine’s Day,” he tells.“I’m not very keen on celebrating but for me it depends on the girl and how serious I am about her,” says Vange, 23, in a relationship.“If she’s into celebrating, I will probably make dinner arrangements so we can enjoy something we both like. Food.” Theo, 28, also in a relationship, shares his own fun point of view.“My girlfriend is in Greece at the moment, so I won’t celebrate. Not that we’re actually into this love thing.” “There are some interestingly good sales going on Val’s Day we try not to miss, like those ‘get a spa treatment for two, pay for one’ ones. Or dinner discounts,” he says.“Who knows? I might end up grabbing a mate and pretend we’re a gay couple!”How do the girls in our community feel about Valentine’s Day celebrations, though? Are they really so into it?“I’ll be watching the Simpsons Halloween specials with a friend of mine. Need to avoid all the happy couples,” says Areti, 23 and single. “You don’t need one day in the year to show how much you care, however, at the same time I think the idea of everyone expressing their love openly together as a whole is sweet and sets a nice atmosphere.”“I’m torn with the idea,” she confesses.Elektra, a 21-year-old single woman, appreciates the sentiment of the day but believes people in relationships shouldn’t be waiting for a ‘special occasion’ to show their partners how much they love them. “I believe it shouldn’t be taken too seriously in terms of spending a whole lot of money on your significant other.”“I’m more the type to appreciate something simple or even a bit silly,” she tells.Nikolina, who is 33 and in a relationship, is not particularly into this celebration, as opposed to her Australian boyfriend.“Valentine’s Day to me is a good excuse to eat more chocolate, I suppose.” “I’m not keen on celebrating, but I’ll get in trouble if I forget. Comes with dating an Aussie,” she adds.“Commercialism crap at its best,” says married Penny, 32.“It’s designed to encourage spending. I’ve told my husband to never, ever buy me a Valentines present.”“I usually, however, buy my daughters a little something because their generation is totally caught up in it,” she explains.“Like any other day, I tell my daughters I love them because that’s who I am, not because a Hallmark holiday dictates it.”Tina, 34, who is also married, says she and her husband are not doing anything different this day.“We’ll do what we’re usually up to on any other day of the year.” “We prefer going out to dinner, trying different restaurants, probably something a little bit fancier,” she explains.Zoe, 34, married and mother to a son, thinks Valentine’s Day is “a bunch of bull”. “Yes. It is. Completely unnecessary.“I show my husband love every day and he does the same,” she says, stressing that there are no ‘commercial’ days for them. “If you need to celebrate your relationship, why not celebrate your first date anniversary or wedding anniversary?”Vasilia, 32, is also a married mum.“It’s hard to celebrate when you have three kids. If you feel like offering your significant other a present or a token of love, any day would do.” “This is just a commercial celebration for florists, jewellers and pastry makers,” she insists.“I like to celebrate it. I usually give a token gift,” says Helen, 34.“We used to go for dinner but that’s a little impossible now with a baby. I’ll make a special dinner at home on the day with wine and so on.”“I believe that we should have many Valentine’s Days in our lives. One a week would be great!”Christina, 31, in a relationship, really enjoys it, too.“I do celebrate Valentine’s Day. For my partner and I, it’s an excuse to get away and spend some time together with no technology or interruptions.”“We like to go away to the coast or somewhere nice to stay for a night or two. This gives us some quality time together,” she adds.Χρόνια Πολλά!*History lesson of the day: Valentine’s Day actually stems from the story of Saint Valentine, a Roman priest who was executed by Emperor Claudius II on 14 February AD270, for performing illegal marriage ceremonies on the Roman battlefield. The emperor believed love and connubial pleasure made the soldiers want to stay alive for their wives, therefore afraid of death and war. Saint Valentine is not an urban legend, neither was he invented by Hallmark cards, as many may think. This celebration has become increasingly popular in Australia over the years, but how does the Greek community feel about it, since the Greek Orthodox Church has denounced this day? The Catholic Church, though, has three more Valentine’s to celebrate. English poet Geoffrey Chaucer was the first to associate the saint with courtly love in his Parliament of Foules poem. It wasn’t until budding entrepreneur Esther Howland decided to move the tradition of handwritten V cards one step forward that printing Valentine’s Day cards turned into a business in 1847.

first_imgLe traité sur la gouvernance d’internet est rejeté par la France et de nombreux paysJamais mis à jour depuis 1988, le règlement des télécommunications internationales devait faire l’objet d’un nouveau texte lors d’une conférence internationale à Dubaï. Si 89 pays l’ont signé, 55 ont refusé, dont les États-Unis et la France. Et pour cause, le texte prévoit le contrôle du web par les États et les organisations internationales.Après Doha au Qatar, c’est au tour de Dubaï aux Émirats-Arabes-Unis de voir ses conférences se terminer dans une atmosphère pour le moins confuse. De nombreux pays occidentaux ont ainsi refusé purement et simplement de ratifier le texte de la conférence mondiale des télécommunications internationales (WCIT), chargée par l’ONU de mettre à jour pour la première fois de 1988 le règlement des télécommunications internationales. Comme l’annonce l’AFP, l’accord final prévoyait le droit pour chaque pays à “réguler internet”. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Dès vendredi, la délégation américaine avait annoncé qu’elle ne signerait pas le texte, principalement parce qu’il offrait la possibilité à l’Union internationale des télécommunications (UIT) d’agir sur la gouvernance d’internet. “Les États-Unis ont toujours pensé que [le traité du WCIT] ne devait pas s’étendre au contenu d’internet ou à sa gouvernance”, a expliqué à l’AFP Terry Kramer, chef de la délégation américaine.

first_imgSome legislators say the formula is unsustainable, particularly as the state has been using fund earnings — long used for dividends — to help pay for government. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Gov. Mike Dunleavy slashed the University of Alaska system budget by $130 million on Friday, part of a series of vetoes he characterized as difficult but necessary amid an ongoing state deficit. The state, which had long relied on oil to help pay for government, last year began using permanent fund earnings to help cover expenses. Alaska has no personal income or statewide sales tax and there was no consideration of any such taxes this year. “We have to close this gap,” he said. “This budget touches practically every Alaskan. It’s not necessarily going to be easy. We never said it would be. But we do believe that in some of these cases, a full, statutory PFD could mitigate some of the issues.” Lawmakers themselves have faced divisions ahead of an upcoming special session, with legislative leaders proposing to buck Dunleavy’s chosen meeting location and other lawmakers insistent on following Dunleavy’s call to meet in Wasilla. Dunleavy, in a letter to legislative leaders, writes the budget “focuses on the state’s basic responsibilities while understanding our fiscal constraints.” “The governor’s vetoes today would crash Alaska’s economy and trash our future,” Sen. Jesse Kiehl, a Juneau Democrat, said in a statement. “Now it’s up to the Legislature to protect our state, for this generation and the next.” Dunleavy, a Republican, also cut state support for public broadcasting, reduced spending for Medicaid and eliminated a program that provides money to senior citizens who have low or moderate incomes. The cut to the university is on top of a $5 million cut approved by lawmakers. He said there is no easy way out of the state’s budget predicament and suggested a full payout to residents this fall from the state’s oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund, could help meet the needs some Alaskans have. The state has wrestled for years with a budget deficit that has persisted amid low to middling oil prices. Dunleavy said he plans to look at his options but hopes the Legislature meets in Wasilla. Lawmakers have the ability to override budget vetoes if they can muster sufficient support. Dunleavy told reporters he has faith in university leaders but said he doesn’t think the university system “can be all things to all people. And I think that’s, generally speaking, the state of Alaska. We can’t continue to be all things for all people.” Minority Senate Democrats denounced Dunleavy’s budget as short-sighted. PFD refers to the Permanent Fund dividend. Lawmakers have yet to finalize this year’s payout, which is the subject of an upcoming special session. Dunleavy has maintained the Legislature should follow a longstanding formula that has not been followed the last three years amid the budget deficit. A full dividend would cost an estimated $1.9 billion and equate to checks of around $3,000 for residents. Dunleavy’s predecessor, independent Gov. Bill Walker, unsuccessfully pushed tax proposals as part of a fiscal plan. Dunleavy said he’s taking a different approach that includes reduced state spending.last_img read more

first_img*Article supplied by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more groundbreaking initiatives. Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014. Only 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.”center_img WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite last_img read more

first_img Home Prices Housing Supply 2016-11-09 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Prospective homebuyers faced a challenging housing market during the third quarter, mostly due to ongoing inventory shortages that are resulting in a faster rate of home price appreciation, according to a quarterly report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) covering the third quarter.In Q3, the median price nationwide for existing single-family homes was $240,900, which was a year-over-year increase of 5.2 percent and a new peak quarterly median sales price—just $200 above Q2’s peak of $240,700.The median price also rose at a slightly faster over-the-year rate in Q3 compared to the rate in Q2 (5.2 percent compared to 4.9 percent), according to NAR. In all, 87 percent of metros measured (155 out of 178) showed increases in their median existing-home price for the third quarter compared to a year ago. Twenty-five of the metros experienced double-digit rates of home price appreciation in Q3.“Mortgage rates around historical lows and solid local job creation created a winning formula for sustained homebuying demand all summer long,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said. “Unfortunately for house hunters in several of the top job producing metro areas around the country, deficient supply levels limited their options and drove prices higher—especially in markets in the West and South.”A persistent shortage of existing homes for sale drove the faster rates of home price appreciation, according to NAR. At the end of Q3, there were 2.04 million existing homes for sale, which is down by 6.8 percent from Q3 2015 (2.19 million). Average supply in Q3 was also down over-the-year from 4.9 months to 4.6 months.The short supply also resulted in a slight slippage of existing-home sales, according to NAR. Existing homes sold at an annual rate of 5.38 million, down by 2.2 percent from the second quarter and by 0.4 percent over-the-year.“After climbing to their highest annual pace in over nine years in June, sales sputtered in the third quarter because inventory could not catch up with what was being quickly sold,” said Yun. “Only a decent rebound in September kept the monthly and annual sales declines from being even larger.”NAR’s analysis for the third quarter also showed that seven of the 10 most expensive housing markets were located in the West, led by San Jose, where the median home price surpassed $1 million for the second straight quarter.

first_img Top Stories 3 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson smiles as he gets ready to put on his football helmet during an NFL football training camp Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact After missing almost all of the 2017 season, David Johnson is still considered among the best running backs in the NFL.Former NFL running back and current NFL.com analyst Maurice Jones-Drew ranked Johnson the third best running back in the NFL. Le’Veon Bell of the Steelers and Todd Gurley of the Rams were ranked first and second respectively.Johnson should have fresh legs after suffering a season-ending wrist injury in Week 1 last season. Now healthy, he should push for his 2016 numbers (1,239 rushing, 879 receiving) and once again be a huge mismatch in the passing game. The Cardinals will need to lean on their versatile back with a new quarterback under center.With a new coaching staff and offensive scheme under first-year offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Johnson is expected to be productive and healthy. His ability to be a force in the passing game as well as a three-down back makes him an invaluable fixture in the Cardinals offense. The biggest thing Johnson has to prove in 2018 is that he can remain healthy. Having been injured in the last two regular season games he’s played, another major injury could put a permanent asterisk around his name.Related LinksCardinals’ Chase Edmonds plans to pay off sister’s student loansJohnson skipped mandatory minicamp as he holds out for a new contract. Given his injuries, it seems like a smart move for Johnson to seek compensation for strong past performances. General Manager Steve Keim has stated he looks forward to rewarding Johnson with a new contact, so it’s likely just a matter of time before he will be paid.Johnson is scheduled to make $1.88 million in 2018, as his rookie deal expires at season’s end.last_img read more

first_imgFormer President Demetris Christofias said on Friday he would take legal action against daily newspaper Alithia, which reported that he owes the state €48,000.Christofias, who accused the daily of carrying out a campaign to tarnish his character and name and humiliate him, said in a statement that he was being ‘falsely and inexplicably’ accused of being allegedly in debt to the state.The daily on Friday published Christofias’ photograph on its front page with a question in block letters: “Which former president owes the state €48,087?”The article said that according to a 2016 report from Auditor-General Odysseas Michaelides on the foreign ministry, released this week, a former president received €48,087 in advance for a trip abroad without ever returning it.The daily drew the conclusion that, as one of the two living former presidents – George Vassiliou – who was in office between 1988 and 1993, denied any involvement in the case, the issue ‘clearly concerns Mr Christofias’.Christofias was in office between 2008 and 2013.According to the report, a former president received in 2000 – outside his term of office in the presidential post – €48,087 in advance for accommodation during a trip to London. The report also refers to €6,738 paid between 1995 and 2003 to a former head of a parliamentary party for accommodation abroad.When officials travel abroad for state business they receive a daily allowance for accommodation and meals for which they have to submit receipts upon their return to justify the expenses. It emerged in these two cases that the two officials received those amounts which, for some reason, appear to have remained outstanding to-date in the foreign ministry’s advance accounts. The audit office called on the ministry to take all necessary measures to ensure the collection of these arrears.Alithia said that Michaelides, when asked, refrained from naming these individuals.“Even though we were not able to contact former president Demetris Christofias, from the response of Mr Vasiliou, it is clear that the issue concerns Mr Christofias,” the daily said.“I have nothing else to say other than I will take all due legal measures to protect the honour and dignity of my name and of the political space I come from,” Christofias said in the statement.You May LikeSolar SolutionsCalifornia – New Program Giving Solar Panels to Homeowners With Electricity Bills Over $100/mthSolar SolutionsUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

VIEW MOREDANIEL BEREHULAK—The New York Times1 of 54Answer by Mira Zaslove on Quora I’ve interviewed a lot of people over the years mostly for sales and finance positions These are a few red flags that stuck out to me Candidates who came in: 1 Bragging about offers they already had I interviewed a candidate who came in to tell me he already had an hot offer from a heavily funded start-up He said it immediately I hadn’t even decided that I wanted to hire him and already he was baiting me into a bidding war When candidates blatantly brag about other offers it signals that they aren’t committed to this particular job It’s a red-flag that indicates they will probably accept another offer using my offer as leverage And if they do join as a hiring manager I worry that they will always be thinking “what if” I’ve seen these candidates quit when the going gets tough to take another “greener pasture” position It is not a bad thing to bring up another offer in the interview at the appropriate time Interviews are like a tennis match and timing is everything The interviewer starts by throwing the ball and the candidate hits back If you are a candidate with another offer first nail your current interview Then at the appropriate time close with “I am very interested in this opportunity Please let me know timing for the next step as I also have another offer I am evaluating” 2 Looking sloppy Candidates who come into the interview with wrinkled or dirty clothes show the interviewer they aren’t putting the time in First impressions matter How formal you dress will depend on the company but as a candidate the best thing to do is to pick an outfit that won’t draw attention The focus should be on the interview not on the clothing I once interviewed a candidate who came in wearing an overly casual and wrinkled outfit It looked like she was going to a yoga class Her painted nails were chipping and her hair was messy Nevertheless we ignored the red flag She was a good candidate and we hired her She performed well but quit shortly after joining When she quit she admitted that she had already been accepted to business school and took the job for the training and some cash to tide her over As a candidate I recommend ironing and picking an outfit the day before the interview And try on the whole outfit including shoes accessories and briefcase / bag The last thing you want is to think you are ready and then an hour before the interview find out your pants don’t fit or jacket has a hole in it Also if you tend to be a person who sweats a lot wear a darker colored shirt or a jacket 3 Asking no questions A good interview is a conversation where both sides are engaged The purpose is to discover if the position is a match If the candidate asks no questions it’s a red flag It appears that either they aren’t interested or believe they already know everything to know about the position As a candidate if you are really out of questions let’s say you have already had an extensive round of interviews and are at the final interview I recommend asking the interviewer something about their experience Ask how they got into the market the industry or what most surprised them about the job If you are a candidate who tends to get nervous or forget things it’s acceptable to have your questions written and bring them with you I’ve interviewed candidates who brought a list of questions with them and took notes 4 Too aggressive I once had a candidate say to me “ok if you are so good show me how it’s done Sell me this pen” I had not yet decided if I wanted to hire this candidate and found it jarring After I gave my answer (If someone handed you a pen and said “Sell me this pen” how would you go about it) they proceeded to try to “one-up” me with an overly amped full-press standing presentation It was too much It was a red flag to me as a hiring manager It’s difficult to train people who ask questions not for an answer but only to show how smart they are As a candidate it’s important to show confidence and smarts However competing with or arguing with the interviewer is rarely successful Rather it’s a red-flag indicating the candidate is “un-coachable” Similarly we once had to rescind an offer we gave to a candidate for being overly aggressive when they received the offer When the hiring manager gave them the offer the candidate proceeded to tell them how “#$*#*# awesome they were going to be and #$*#*# kill the market” The candidate shouted very loud cursing and began furiously running around– distracting the whole office 5 With an extra long commute It’s a red flag if the candidate is late to the interview Especially if it’s due to a long drive I also worry if the candidate complains about the commute parking or traffic I’ve had a few good people quit after only a few weeks on the job because the commute was just too much Some people can handle the extra time or will move for the right opportunity but many will be repeatedly late for work or just quit As an interviewer or candidate I suggest scheduling interviews at 8am or 9am I’ve had people tell me “when I came for the interview at 11:00am it only took an hour but to get in at 8:00am takes me 2 hours” Ideally the conditions set forth in the interview are representative of the job I also worry when candidates ask about working from home or setting their own schedule when that is not the practice at the company This question originally appeared on Quora: What are some of the biggest red flags in an interview Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the
