Neymar returns to PSG training with future still up in the air

first_imgParis: Neymar showed up for training at Paris Saint-Germain on Monday, according to French media reports, a week late and days after controversially claiming his best football memory was beating PSG when he played for Barcelona. A video posted on the website of leading sports daily L’Equipe showed the 27-year-old Brazilian — his hair dyed peroxide blonde — getting out of a black Mercedes van at the club’s training ground in the suburbs of the French capital.

The French champions responded last week by threatening to take “appropriate action” against the world’s most expensive player, who said he had stayed in Brazil to attend a charity five-a-side football tournament run by his foundation, the Neymar Institute.

Asked by online sports channel Oh My Goal about his best memory in football, the troubled superstar cited Barcelona’s incredible 2017 Champions League victory over PSG when he was part of the team that overturned a 4-0 first-leg deficit by winning 6-1 in the second leg of their last-16 tie. Earlier in the day, Neymar posted a 10-second video of himself in a Barcelona shirt and a quote from the Bible: “No weapon turned against you will prosper.”last_img read more

Conservative leader says Trudeau will hike carbon tax if he wins vote

first_imgREGINA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer welcomed 2019 with a warning that if Canadians re-elect Justin Trudeau this year, the federal carbon tax that’s going to take effect will only climb.“Canadians know what Justin Trudeau is going to do. Now that his carbon tax is here, it’s only going to go up. And if he gets re-elected in 10 months, it will go up even more,” Scheer said during a New Year’s Day news conference in a Giant Tiger store in Regina.“This time next year I plan on being able to tell Canadians that Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax is a thing of the past.”The federal government’s new carbon pricing system comes into effect in 2019 in provinces that don’t have carbon pricing mechanisms of their own. The carbon price outlined by Ottawa starts at a minimum of $20 a tonne and rises $10 annually until 2022.But Scheer told reporters that government officials are saying the tax would need to rise to $100 per tonne for it to be effective at reducing carbon emissions, and he says the federal environment department is planning for a carbon tax of $300 per tonne.“So we know Justin Trudeau will raise the carbon tax higher. His experts are telling him to. His own government departments are telling him to,” Scheer said.“At that price home heating bills will rise by more than $1,000 a year and gas prices would go up by more than 60 cents a litre.”When asked by a reporter about his own plan to fight climate change, Scheer responded that the Conservatives’ plan will help reduce global emissions by capitalizing on Canada’s clean technology and cleaner energy, which he said will also keep manufacturing jobs in Canada instead of moving to countries without those things.Canada’s former parliamentary budget officer predicted in a report in April that the federal government’s carbon tax will cut economic growth by 0.5 per cent or $10 billion dollars when it’s fully implemented in 2022, and would generate significant revenues.However, Jean-Denis Frechette’s report noted the impact on the economy will depend on how those revenues are used.Trudeau says Ottawa will return 90 per cent of the money it collects from a carbon tax to Canadians.Saskatchewan is asking its Court of Appeal to rule on whether the carbon tax is unconstitutional and has argued its climate change plan is enough to reduce emissions and a carbon tax would hurt the Saskatchewan economy.Scheer, who represents Regina—Qu’Appelle in Parliament, said Saskatchewan’s fight against the tax gets easier as more provinces elect governments that also oppose it, like Ontario and New Brunswick did in 2018.“Premier (Scott) Moe and Premier (Brad) Wall before him had a bit of a lonely battle but now they’ve got reinforcements. And my message to Canadians is come 2019, the battle will be won,” Scheer said.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Wage gap between Canadian men and women narrows with education OECD study

Wage gap between Canadian men and women narrows with education: OECD study by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 15, 2016 8:13 am MDT Last Updated Sep 15, 2016 at 9:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A global education study reveals larger-than-average earning gaps between Canadian men and women, but that narrows as women pursue higher levels of study.The report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development analysed data from 35 member countries and 11 partner countries.Among 25- to 64-year-olds with less than a Grade 11 education, Canadian women earned 61 per cent of what men earned in 2014, compared with the 76 per cent average across OECD countries.Canadian women who achieved post-secondary studies fared a bit better at 72 per cent of what men earned, which is comparable to the OECD average of 73 per cent.In other data, Canada had the largest share of adults with post-secondary education but a lower-than-average share of masters and doctoral degrees in 2015.Last year, 55 per cent of Canadian adults had post-secondary education, the highest share among OECD countries compared to an average of 35 per cent.Canada also spends more per post-secondary student than almost all of the OECD countries, at US$21,500. That places Canada sixth overall, after Luxembourg, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. read more

Moral obligation and political imperative to support Syria on path to peace

“As the conflict enters its ninth year, Syrians continue to suffer from one of the worst conflicts of our time,” said António Guterres, in an appeal for international action. “Hundreds of thousands have been killed, many more maimed physically and psychologically, millions remain displaced, tens of thousands are detained and missing, hundreds of thousands have died and Syrians in the northeast and northwest remain under constant fear of yet another humanitarian catastrophe unfolding”, he said.It is a moral obligation and a political imperative for the international community to support Syrians to unite around a vision for their common future – UN chief GuterresSpeaking at the end of a week which saw a record $7 billion pledged for the war-torn nation at an international ministerial conference in Brussels, Mr. Guterres urged all of the warring parties in Syria “to maintain their commitments and uphold the ceasefire arrangement in Idlib”, he said, following fresh violence in the last remaining rebel-held Governorate. “I am extremely concerned about reported increased military operations in the last few weeks. Counter-terrorism operations cannot override responsibilities to protect civilians. A ceasefire in Idlib is a necessary step to pave the way for a nation-wide ceasefire,” the UN chief added. While fighting continues on any level, Mr. Guterres said that “international humanitarian law needs to be fully respected and human rights protected. Innocent civilians, the majority of them women and children, have paid the highest price in this conflict because of the blatant disregard for International Humanitarian and Human Rights Law.”Thirdly, he said, “sustained humanitarian access remains critical, with 11.7 million people in need of protection and assistance.” Finally he added – thanking all the donors in Brussels who have promised fresh financial assistance – “strengthened international support is urgently required if the parties to the conflict are to seriously move towards finding a political solution that meets the legitimate aspirations of all Syrians.”“It is a moral obligation and a political imperative for the international community to support Syrians to unite around a vision for their common future that protects civilians, alleviates suffering, prevents further instability, addresses the root causes of the conflict and forges, at long last, a credible negotiated solution,” the Secretary-General concluded. read more

Cross country comes down to just racing for Ohio State

On the surface, cross-country racing seems like such a simple sport. Go a long distance as fast as you can, and get as many top finishes as possible. But collegiate cross-country is not quite that simple. While the goal is still to run as fast as possible, there are nuances to the scoring and the structure of the events that can leave newcomers to the sport scratching their heads. Races for the men are between five and eight kilometers long (3.1 – five miles), with the majority being eight km. If the race is an NCAA regional or national championship event, it is 10 km (6.2 miles) long. Women’s events are between five and six km. (3.1 and 3.7 miles). At each event, only a team’s five fastest times count. The team is then given points equal to each runner’s overall finishing position. So if a runner finishes second, the team is given two points, three points are given to third place and so on. “It’s scored just like golf in that the lower your score, the better you finish,” said men’s team coach Brice Allen. The best possible score is a 15, which is achieved only if a team takes first through fifth place. The team with the lowest total wins the match. This is the case for all regular season events and the Big Ten Championship meet. Qualifying for the national championship is a bit more complicated. There are nine major regional events. The top two teams from each of those events automatically move on to the NCAA Championships. An additional 13 teams will qualify based on their performance in the regular season. Events prior to the weekend of September 15-16 are considered warm-up events and do not count for national qualifying. Top runners whose teams do not qualify for nationals may qualify to compete as individuals. There are other minor changes that occur during the cross-country postseason. “When you get into the championship races there’s more team tactics,” Allen said. “Sometimes your lead runners will set the pace for your No. 5 guy. There is strength in numbers.” The strategy was echoed by women’s cross-country coach Khadevis Robinson, who said that sticking together is key. “You can get (positions) one, two, three and four and that’s only 10 points, but if your fifth person gets 110th then you gotta add that 110 onto those 10 points and now your score is 120. Whereas someone else can get 15th, 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th. Add those up and it’s less than 120,” he said. “Even though your first four girls got one, two, three and four, you lose.” However, this is not easy. “Getting five guys to finish an eight-10 km race within a 25-35 second spread is extremely challenging,” OSU redshirt senior runner Chris Fallon said. There are a number of other aspects to the sport that most people are not aware of. Athletes spend a lot of time in the weight room and recuperating from injuries. “I don’t think people know how much time we put into our sport,” said junior runner Meredith Wagner. “We never have an offseason. We train year-round and compete in three seasons. We spend many hours a week in the training room and doing rehab to stay healthy.” Cross-country injuries can range from simple blisters to tendonitis and stress fractures. “I give a lot of credit to our athletic trainers for putting up with us,” Fallon said. Despite the difficult year-round work, the pain and the strategy involved, the essence of cross-country is fairly simple. “At the end of the day it comes down to just racing,” Robinson said. read more

Migrant workers sentenced to death over Thailand murder of British backpackers lose

first_img Share11 Tweet Email Migrant workers sentenced to death over Thailand murder of British backpackers lose appeal Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Tun were found guilty of the brutal murder in 2014. 29,048 Views Thursday 29 Aug 2019, 1:59 PM https://jrnl.ie/4787258 They are very worried about when they will be executed. It was very difficult to tell them, even though they were prepared.The case was also watched closely in Myanmar, where many felt they had been given an unfair trial.Protests were triggered outside the Thai embassy in Myanmar’s commercial capital Yangon after the original convictions.Thailand’s legal system is notoriously opaque, with some cases flying through the courts and others taking years.Last year Thailand carried out its first execution since 2009, prompting criticism by rights groups who had hoped the country was moving towards abolishing the practice.© – AFP 2019 Myanmar migrant workers Zaw Lin (L) and Win Zaw Tun have received death sentences. Image: PA Images Myanmar migrant workers Zaw Lin (L) and Win Zaw Tun have received death sentences. Short URL TWO MYANMAR MIGRANT workers sentenced to death for the brutal murder of a pair of British backpackers in Thailand have lost their final appeal in a case tainted by claims of irregularities.Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Tun were found guilty of the rape and murder of Hannah Witheridge, 23, and of killing David Miller, 24, after their battered bodies were found on a beach on the southern resort island of Koh Tao in September 2014.Prosecutors insisted the evidence against the men from Myanmar’s impoverished Rakhine state was clear, and announcing the verdict of a final appeal, Thailand’s top court agreed.“The Supreme Court upholds the verdict from the first court and the appeal court,” a judge told the stonefaced defendants, who were wearing khaki prison clothing.Their last hope now is for a royal pardon or commutation. During the proceedings, the defence said the evidence was not reliable as authorities mishandled DNA, did not allow independent analysis of samples and used confessions the pair said were forced.Police were also accused of buckling under pressure to solve a crime that made global headlines and threatened a tourism sector that accounts for a fifth of Thailand’s economy.The original verdicts on the 2014 double killing divided relatives of the victims. Miller’s parents backed the court’s conviction, but the family of Witheridge were more cautious, and a sister called the investigation “bungled”.Thursday’s ruling said the confessions held up, as did forensic tests. But defence lawyer Nadthasiri Bergman told AFP her clients didn’t have interpreters or lawyers when the police obtained the confessions.“Using all of that is a legal problem,” she said outside the court, after the decision was handed down.Chief defence lawyer Nakhon Chompuchat said his clients were “shocked” by the verdict. “They absolutely still deny any wrongdoing,” he said.

Are Super Salty Lakes in Canada the Key to Finding Alien Life

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Bizarre Interstellar Object ‘Oumuamua Is Not an Alien SpacecraftReebok Releases 40th Anniversary ‘Alien’ Stomper Sneaker center_img It’s hard to believe salty lakes on Earth have anything to do with locating extraterrestrials.But two briny basins in the Canadian Arctic could help scientists at the University of Alberta search for life on other planets.Ph.D. student Anja Rutishauser discovered the pair of lakes—some 600 to 800 yards below a massive glacier—while studying radar data from NASA.“We weren’t looking for subglacial lakes,” she said in a statement. “The ice is frozen to the ground at the Devon Ice Cap, so there shouldn’t be liquid water there.”Alas, Mother Nature is a fickle mistress, who does as she pleases (recent global weather reports can corroborate).Distracted from work describing the geology surrounding the ice cap, Rutishauser turned her focus to the berg: By sending electromagnetic waves through the mass, researchers were able to see what’s inside.“We saw these radar signatures telling us there’s water, but we thought it was impossible that there could be liquid water underneath this ice, which is -18℃ [-0.4℉],” she said.It turns out that the saltiness of the lakes—four to five times more brackish than seawater—allows H2O to remain liquid, despite below-freezing temperatures. These reservoirs, according to the University, could function as a model for finding life elsewhere in the universe.“We think they [the newly identified lakes] can serve as a good analogue for Europa, one of Jupiter’s icy moons, which has similar conditions of liquid water underneath an ice shell,” Rutishauser said.“If there is microbial life in these lakes, it has been under ice for a very long time, so it must have evolved in isolation,” she continued. “If we can collect a sample, we can determine whether microbial life exists to understand how it evolved and how it continues in this cold environment with no sunlight or energy.”The first hypersaline subglacial lakes are described further by a study, published this week in the journal Science Advances. There are some 400 subglacial lakes in the world, mainly in Antarctica and Greenland.Moving forward, Rutishauser & Co. are partnering with The W. Garfield Weston Foundation for a detailed airborne geophysical survey over the Devon Ice Cap, scheduled for this spring.last_img read more

Stop acid tests

first_imgThe discussion also paid heed to the need of regulation, to control the open sale of acid. This would help curb the violence against women. Acid attack survivors, Rupa and recipient of International Women of Courage Award, Laxmi, social activitist Alok Dixit, Consulting Editor, Mint, Namita Bhandare and renowned Supreme Court lawyer Karuna Nundy discussed the crime that has only recently come to limelight! Laxmi and Rupa shared their stories with the audience, when and how they were attacked, how their lives changed from there on, their struggles ever since and the support they received from Chhanv.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Every few days, there are increasing reports of acids being thrown at some girl in some part of this vast country. It has been noted, that in India, over 1000 women are victims of acid attacks annually. Recently, the Supreme Court went to the extent of banning, over the counter sale of acid in shops across India. Like most of such rulings, this one too lies mostly on paper. Acid is still available to anyone who wishes to purchase the same, quite easily.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixEnforced legislation, as a speaker suggested, can be the first step in saving India’s vulnerable women population. In fact, most problems that the society is grappling with can be overcome by this simple step. The acid attack victims face problems that most of us can’t even imagine. Denied justice, insufficient compensation and acceptance in society are just a few to be mentioned.  Stop Acid Attacks is a campaign against acid violence, founded by Alok Dixit. They work as a bridge between survivors and the society. The campaign was brought up, as most of the victims of this brutal crime, have isolated themselves after losing their face. ‘Due to ignorance of the government and civil society, most survivors find no hope and stay like an outcast, in solitude,’ says Dixit. Stop Acid Attack aims to research and track acid attack cases and compile a data to get the actual situation of survivors.In the last two years, Dixit has built a campaign across the country. His organisation, made up mainly of acid attack victims, makes it a point to visit the victims and help them in whatever way possible. It is our hope that more and more such organisations come up to help fellow humans and citizens. Because as we see it, the real change makers have often been the common man.last_img read more

Larson and Jacob Tremblay in a still from ‘Room’ Related News The world is a bad enough place for a parent to explain to a child But what if the world is no bigger than a small room visited by a monster every other night How do you hang on there to love humanity or childhood Ma (Larson) and Jack (Tremblay) find a way in a beautifully told story based on a novel written by Emma Donaghue after hearing about the five-year-old boy Felix in the Fritzl kidnapping case where a woman was held captive for 24 years by her father repeatedly raped by him and delivered seven children Ma or rather Joy has spent seven years in captivity (from the time she was 17 to 24) held and raped in a garden shed by a man she calls Old Nick (Bridgers) — she doesn’t know his name Five of those years have been made more bearable by the presence of her son from him Jack The film opens to a usual day for them involving a small cot shared by the two a bathtub where they bathe together a sink a dining table a small kitchen area and a wardrobe where Jack is hidden away when Nick comes for his nightly round Soon after we realise it’s Jack’s birthday — he has turned five — and Ma and he bake a cake together that he refuses to eat because she can’t arrange candles The novel as well as the film is told from the perspective of Jack In the hands of cinematographer Danny Cohen and director Abrahamson the room a tiny space by any imagination expands and expands to encompass his world In that enclosure Ma and Jack have their reading classes he draws he watches TV he exercises he runs “track” (from wall to wall on Ma’s instruction) eats his vitamins and must brush his teeth before bed What he sees on TV for him is the “TV world” “not real” What he has in Room (always without “the” an entity of own) is the only thing real including Nick The room weighs down Ma at times but not Jack who constantly finds things to be fascinated by including the sun streaming in through the skylight the shadows it makes the vapour of his breath on a cold day the screams they direct at the skylight and a vent for “aliens” to hear or an amazing afternoon when a mouse finds its way in for bits of his cake An episode with Nick however makes Ma fear that this arrangement can’t last and having tried other modes of escape before she thinks that somehow getting Jack out and him alerting others is her only chance They first fake an illness and Tremblay is achingly good in how frightened he is at the thought of pulling off this lie and making it to the world outside — it’s been only days since Ma has told him that what he sees on TV actually exists “Can we do this when I am 6” Jack asks When that fails Ma tells Jack to play dead and be carried out wrapped in a carpet — another episode shot in an almost frenzied fright as the mother and son don’t dare speak the unspoken and the audience holds its breath The first part of Room ends with Jack’s flight — almost too quickly The rest dealing with their life in the world outside is more predictable more practical However you have to appreciate the filmmaker’s effort to not end where everyone would have gone home with a warm feeling in the heart Donaghue (the screenwriter) realises and Abrahamson does too that Room would linger on for Jack and Ma for long after It’s in the difficult steps they take putting it behind — not great cinema perhaps but essential storytelling — that Room eventually becomes just four walls The film is nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture Best Director and Best Actress for Larson Tremblay deserves a category of his own for giving us Jack When he tells his grandmother (Allen) who is almost too afraid to ask if the room wasn’t too small that “Room went in every direction… it never finished” it

More Related NewsWritten by Flavia Agnes | Published: July 23 2011 1:32 am Related News The Bombay high court missed an opportunity to make history by striking down the archaic provision of adultery which is punishable under Section 497 of the IPC The writ petition was filed by a person facing trial in a criminal court on a complaint filed by the husband for having sexual relations with his wife It seemed that the husband had engaged the services of a detective agency to track down the wifes movements The argument of the petitioner was that the section violates his fundamental right to have relations with a person of his choiceparticularly since same-sex relationships have been decriminalised and since the Domestic Violence Act 2005 awards recognition to living-in relationships Hence the archaic law has ceased to have any relevance in the contemporary context This argument did not cut ice with the bench comprising of Justices BH Mariapalle and UD Salvi who strongly felt that Section 497 is essential to preserve the sanctity of the institution of marriage The court was of the view that in order to have sex with a person of ones choiceit is imperative for the married spouse to first excuse herself from the contract of marriage But while upholding this premisethe bench failed to take note of the sexist premise on which the provision is based that it views women as essentially the property of their husbandsa notion prevalent in the bygone era of Victorian England Consequent-lyhaving sexual relations with her violates the husbands property rights which warrants a criminal punishment Within this formulationa man indulging in extra-marital sex with an unmarried woman does not warrant a similar punishment as it does not hurt the sentiments of a male-dominated society The wife of such a man has no remedy in criminal lawas it appears that the sanctity of marriage is not violated by such lapses on the part of menwithin a society premised on a patriarchal value system Ironicallywhile this petition was being heard in the Bombay high courtthe adjacent Sessions Court appears to have been gripped with a similar concern Since the famous Nanavati trial of 1959where the husband was given a lesser punishment for killing the wifes loveron the ground that it was a crime of passion caused by grave and sudden provocation. read more
