A Rival Coach Is Accusing Nick Saban Of Cheating At Alabama

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)No college football coach has been close to as successful as Nick Saban over the last 10 years or so. Alabama’s head coach has led the Crimson Tide to several national titles and SEC championships.CBS Sports published today a ranking of the most-overrated and most-underrated head coaches in the sport, based on anonymous voting from coaches.Saban, unsurprisingly, was not voted one of the most-overrated coaches, but one rival coach did call him out with a fiery quote.The rival coach is accusing Saban of cheating.“If you had the No. 1 recruiting class in the country every year [you’d win like Nick Saban]. He shows up at every single game with a better roster than the teams he ‘s playing. … If you count cheating and getting the best players in the country as part of running a program, he’s the best in the country. It’s like saying an NFL coach is the best coach in the league if he gets 25 first-round picks every year.”Oh boy.Saban and Alabama do dominate the recruiting circuits like no one else, but calling him out for “cheating” is pretty bold.Any guesses on who that was?last_img read more

New Program Brings Peritoneal Dialysis Home

first_imgNot all Nova Scotians who need dialysis will have to travel to a hospital for treatments. Beginning July 1, a new provincial program will offer continuing-care clients with renal failure the option to have dialysis treatments in their homes and at designated long-term-care facilities. “Today, many dialysis patients must travel to the hospital, three times a week, to receive hemodialysis treatments on someone else’s schedule,” said Health Minister Chris d’Entremont. “This new option gives some the freedom that comes with getting the treatment they need in the comfort and privacy of their own homes.” Peritoneal dialysis is a well-established alternative to traditional hemodialysis. In hemodialysis, blood is passed through an artificial-kidney machine to be cleaned. Peritoneal dialysis uses a similar filtration process, but the blood is cleaned inside the body rather than in a machine. This form of dialysis can be performed in the home or in the community, reducing the need for patients to travel, or relocate, to be closer to hospitals. Less invasive and less expensive, peritoneal dialysis is, in many cases, better suited to elderly and disabled patients. It improves blood-pressure control, preserves remaining kidney function and expands dietary options. Combined with the fact that patients do not need to leave home for treatment, peritoneal dialysis often improves overall quality of life. There are about 95 peritoneal dialysis patients in the province; 10 per cent of those patients are continuing-care clients. Based on health and population trends, it is expected demand for dialysis-treatment options will increase. Peritoneal dialysis will be available to continuing-care clients with renal failure through home-care service providers. It will also be available in one long-term-care home in each health district across the province. The new peritoneal dialysis program makes services already available in some areas of the province available to eligible continuing-care clients across Nova Scotia. Continuing-care clients who require dialysis can call 1-800-225-7225 (out of province 1-902-424-4288), any day of the week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for more information on peritoneal dialysis services. The Continuing Care Strategy is a 10-year plan to enhance and expand Nova Scotia’s continuing-care system. By building on community support, increasing local solutions and ensuring care options are available when and where they are needed, the strategy aims to create a system that supports Nova Scotians in their desire to live well in a place they can call home. A peritoneal dialysis patient is available for interview upon request. For more information see the website at www.gov.ns.ca/health/ccs/ccs_strategy .last_img read more

NDPs Singh seeks urban support with housing billions avoids deficit questions

first_imgOTTAWA — Jagmeet Singh continued his push to win progressive votes on Tuesday by promising an NDP government would invest billions of dollars in affordable housing to help Canadians struggling to make ends meet.The commitment was the NDP’s latest pledge to expand social programs. The party’s promises have included universal pharmacare and free tuition for post-secondary education while promising higher taxes on large corporations and the wealthy.Yet Singh also deflected questions about how and when an NDP government would tackle the federal deficit, saying only that he would make different choices from Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and that his priority is helping Canadians now.“We want to take the budget very seriously, and we’ll look at what that means in the future,” Singh said during a campaign event at a non-profit housing complex in downtown Ottawa, a few kilometres from Parliament Hill.“But right now our priority’s investing in some of the crises that people are going through.”Singh’s stop in the capital on Tuesday meant a return to Ontario, where he spent the first few days of the campaign before a tour of western Quebec over the weekend. He was in Ottawa Centre, where Liberal Catherine McKenna defeated New Democrat Paul Dewar in 2015. The seat has historically flipped back and forth between the Liberals and the NDP.After kicking a soccer ball with some children, Singh announced that an NDP government would build 500,000 new affordable homes over 10 years, starting with an immediate investment of $5 billion.“Our priorities are the people behind me, the families who need affordable housing, the people who tell me that they cannot find a place to live,” Singh said during the low-key campaign event before attacking the Liberals’ record.The NDP leader cited a report by parliamentary budget officer Yves Giroux in June that found under the Liberals’ plan, spending on affordable housing is slated to fall as a percentage of the economy over the next decade.While the raw dollar figure is set to increase, Giroux found federal spending on housing is slated to decline from 0.13 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product in 2017-18 to 0.11 per cent in 2027-28.Meanwhile, census data released Tuesday shows roughly one-third of Canadian households, 4.7 million, live in rental housing and they are often low-income earners, young adults, or newcomers to Canada.In addition, 44 per cent of renters under age 30 spend 30 per cent or more of their incomes on housing. More than half of young renters in Toronto, Metro Vancouver and Ottawa do.Similar affordability issues are found among seniors (including for 64 per cent of those renting in Regina), recent immigrants to Canada, and single mothers.“We hear Mr. Trudeau talk about there is a housing crisis with more of those pretty words,” Singh said during the campaign event. “You know, acknowledging the problem, but then when it comes to the actual solving of the problem, empty promises.”Yet Singh was hard-pressed to say where he would find $5 billion for affordable housing in the first year of his mandate, and instead pointed to the Liberal government having found billions to pay for corporate tax cuts and the Trans Mountain pipeline.Singh painted the $4.5 billion for the pipeline and $14 billion in corporate tax cuts, which the government has said were needed to help Canadian companies compete with U.S. competitors following similar cuts down south, as a handout to the wealthy.Some experts have said such a characterization is misleading as it does not acknowledge how ordinary Canadians might benefit, too, by driving investment in the country and getting Canadian oil to more lucrative markets.“When something is a priority, Mr. Trudeau seems to go out and do it,” said Singh. “But it hasn’t been a priority to make people’s lives better. We believe our priority should be investing in people, investing in housing, and that’s what we’re going to do.”While Singh noted his previous promises to hike taxes on corporations and the wealthy, close various tax loopholes and crack down on tax evasion, he indicated all revenues from those measures will be put into social programs.“With these measures we’re going to increase revenue and we’re going to use the revenue towards programs that actually invest in our country,” he said of the tax hikes and other initiatives. “We know that if we invest in people, we build a better future.”Both the New Democrats and Conservatives promised in the last federal election to run balanced budgets if elected, while the Liberals were elected on a promise to run modest deficits during the first few years of their mandate before returning to balance.In the three full fiscal years since the Liberals came to power, however, the federal government has posted $52 billion worth of shortfalls even though the economy has had a solid run of growth.Ahead of next month’s election, the Liberals have laid out projections calling for five more years of deficits of at least $10 billion. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is promising to pull Canada out of the red in about five years.Green Leader Elizabeth May has also committed to returning Canada to budgetary balance in five years. Maxime Bernier’s new People’s Party of Canada is the only political party that’s promised a quick path to balanced books — within two years.—With files from Jordan PressLee Berthiaume, The Canadian PressNote to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version misnamed the pipeline project the federal government bought.last_img read more

Morocco 16 of Children Under 12 Have Cell Phones

By Anas ZedguiMarrakech- According to a study conducted by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency, 16% of children under 12 years old in Morocco have cell phones. This date was featured for the first time in a new section of the annual study conducted by the agency, which focuses on children and their attitudes towards modern telecommunication technology. More than 25% of them were permitted to use the internet by themselves, and 14% were present on social media, according to the same study. The study also reveals the dominance of social networks in Moroccans’ use of the internet, since those networks are the main reason that 75% of Moroccans subscribe to internet access. Half of those use social networks for between one and two hours per day.After social networking, watching online videos comes in second place with 72% of Moroccans using the internet for that purpose, followed by email services in third. The study also found that 17% of Moroccans have two SIM cards. Meanwhile, Increasing numbers of Moroccans are buying smartphones, taking advantage of deals offered by phone manufacturers and growing 3G access.The numbers of Moroccans with smartphones doubled within a year, and now one-third of Moroccans have approximately 5 million smartphones.Edited by Jessica Rohan read more

Housing shortage looms for Congolese returnees unless UN gets more funds

19 March 2009The United Nations refugee agency says it will not be able to provide thousands of Congolese refugees, many of them returning from Tanzania, with adequate housing unless its shelter programme receives additional funds. “It’s a very critical situation,” said Mohamed Boukry, Regional Representative for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). “Unless we receive contributions, we will have no choice but to reduce this important assistance to thousands of Congolese refugees coming back home from Tanzania.” The agency says the pressure to provide new housing is growing as more and more people return to South Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). About 35,000 Congolese from Tanzania and Zambia are expected to return home this year with UNHCR’s help. “The absence of adequate housing is one of the biggest challenges refugees face upon their return to South Kivu. After years of absence, most find their homes destroyed and have nowhere to stay,” said Sebastien Apatita, head of UNHCR’s office in Baraka.Some 500 shelters were built with UNHCR funding last year in the province’s Uvira and Fizi districts to accommodate some 2,500 of the more than 14,500 returnees it helped back home. UNHCR hopes to provide the resources to build 1,500 more houses in Uvira and Fizi for the most vulnerable families, but notes that this will depend on sufficient resources.The agency does not construct the new homes but rather provides families with the materials and tools, including corrugated iron sheets for roofing, pre-made doors and windows, nails, axes and hammers, to build their own houses.UNHCR says the relative improvements in security in South Kivu, Equateur and Katanga provinces has led to the return of more than 180,000 Congolese refugees, mainly from Tanzania, the Republic of Congo and Zambia, since the agency’s repatriation operations started in 2005. read more

Five police officers arrested over alleged extrajudicial killing

According to Thushara Sampath (20), the eldest son of the deceased, Chandrasiri, a father of 3 children left home at 4.45 a.m. on that day to proceed to his place of business Thalpitiya in Wadduwa. Chandrasiri was a fish trader by profession.Later Sampath learned from his friend that his father had been arrested by a team of police officers at around 5 a.m. at the Thalpitiya Junction and brought to the Wadduwa Police Station. Immediately upon hearing the news Sampath went to the police station where he found his father lying on the floor of a cell. Chandrasiri was a key witness in a case filed against the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Wadduwa Police Station where the petitioner, the owner of a hotel in the same area, states that his fundamental rights were violated by the OIC and other police officers. Five police officers, including an Officer in Charge (OIC) were arrested today over the death of a suspect in police custody in April 2012.Nimal Chandrasiri Dahanayke (42), a fisherman of Thalpitiya, Wadduwa, died while in the custody of the Wadduwa Police. When he approached the bars of the cell, his father was able to recognise him and Sampath could see that he was in great pain. He further observed that his father was bleeding from the injuries on his face and pleaded with the police officers on duty to provide some water for his father. However, the officers ignored his request. Sampath then rushed to home and informed his mother and took her to the police station. On their arrival, a police officer told them that Chandrasiri had been admitted to the Panadura Base Hospital.They went to the base hospital and learned from the hospital staff that the officers had handed over the body to the mortuary indicating that he was pronounced dead on arrival. (Colombo Gazette) According to the information that the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) had received at the time, Chandrasiri Dasanayaka of Thalpitiya, Wadduwa was illegally arrested by the police officers attached to the Wadduwa Police Station and later extrajudicially killed inside the station on 15 April 2012. read more

UNbacked vaccination drive seeks to protect West Africans from seasonal meningitis

The immunization campaign, spearheaded by the GAVI Alliance, will cover Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. “Meningitis takes a terrible toll on the people living in vulnerable parts of Africa every year. It is a painful disease which can kill quickly and often leaves victims with disabilities that will blight their lives,” said Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance, the members of which include the UN World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Meningitis Vaccine Project, amongst a range of other bodies.The seven countries targeted are vulnerable to seasonal severe outbreaks of meningitis with up to 430 million people at risk from the illness, according to a news release issued by the GAVI Alliance. “Nobody really understands exactly why just in that region. But every five to seven years there would be an epidemic. There would be hundreds of thousands if not millions of cases. And it would completely drive the economies to a halt,” said Dr. Berkley. The vaccination drive will ensure those at high risk, particularly children and young adults, are vaccinated by the end of December.The disease can kill the most severely affected patients within 48 hours and causes brain damage, hearing loss or learning difficulties in 20 per cent of sufferers. The most recent major outbreak, in 1996, saw 250,000 people contract meningitis, of which 25,000 died.For its 2011-2016 programme, the GAVI Alliance plans to support immunisation efforts in all 26 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.The Geneva-based GAVI Alliance is a public-private partnership aimed at improving health in the world’s poorest countries. Since its establishment in 2000, GAVI has financed the immunization of more than 325 million children and prevented more than five million premature deaths. read more

Theres an Impossible Burger shortage heres what you should know

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Healthy eating 8 7:19 The Impossible Burger’s similarity to real beef garnered it a loyal following among vegans and vegetarians, but now the company is experiencing a burger shortage.  Mariel Myers/CNET Impossible Foods is experiencing a shortage of its Impossible Burgers as it attempts to stock thousands of fast-food and chain restaurants nationwide. The company’s new growth has led to short supply for many smaller, local and often family-owned restaurants who offered the Impossible Burger before it became so popular. If you’re not yet familiar with the Impossible Burger — the eerily meat-like meatless burger — well, I’d have to guess that you don’t go on the Internet much. All jokes aside, this “bloody” vegan hamburger has taken on the food industry with such adoration (albeit a little skepticism) that it’s now one of the most widely available meatless meat products. The shortage has evoked an outcry from many vegetarian and vegan fans, including Instagram influencers with lots of followers and a large platform on which to share their displeasure. What’s causing the Impossible Burger shortage?Behind the shortage is a rather explosive surge in popularity. The burger is on the menu in more than 9,000 restaurants and is a top seller at many of those restaurants. And, since the launch of the Impossible Burger 2.0 in January 2019, the company has seen a 50% jump in revenue,  according to Impossible Food’s Vice President of Communications, Jessica Appelgren. Another big reason people are having a hard time getting their hands on an Impossible Burger is because the company partnered with multiple national fast-food restaurants and chains, to make the burger available nationwide. The Impossible Burger has even ended up at food stands at stadiums and theme parks.  These growth spurts come with growing pains — the new partnerships and increased sales have come at the expense of supply at some of the first restaurants that ever stocked the Impossible Burger.  Share your voicecenter_img Comments Burger King’s Impossible Whopper: see the technology… Tags How is the shortage affecting customers?One CNET reader emailed me saying that the Impossible Burger is “impossible to find” in Sacramento County (California) and that Impossible Foods “left all of the restaurants that got them where they are today without product for their regular customers.”Not too long after I received that email, I noticed that food, fitness and wellness influencers began taking to Instagram to speak out about the lack of availability at their favorite restaurants. Emilie Hebert, the vegan blogger and sustainability mastermind behind Emilie Eats, said that while she’s happy to see meatless meat become more mainstream nationwide, it’s disappointing that smaller, often family-owned, restaurants can’t get the supply they need. “These restaurants took a chance on carrying a meatless burger when it was not yet the nationwide sensation we see today,” Hebert told CNET. “I love that we have a meatless option at large chains, but I wish Impossible Foods had ensured that they would be able to keep the burger in stock at their already participating restaurants before taking on these large contracts.”kgwetfzchowxukvvexoqImpossible Food’s Oakland, CA plant is now running around the clock to keep up with growing demand. B.HUST/Impossible Foods What’s the company doing to address the shortage?While the meatless meat shortage is surely dispiriting to many, Impossible Foods is far from oblivious to its disheartened fans or the strain of nationwide demand. “We are working our hardest to increase production and are making real strides,” Appelgren told CNET. “We recognize the inconvenience that scarcity causes, and sincerely apologize to all customers, particularly those who have come to depend on the additional foot traffic and revenue that the Impossible Burger has generated.” So what’s Impossible doing to reverse the shortage? Since the company started to feel the strain of its new national contracts, it’s implemented several changes:The Oakland, California plant now operates around the clock with two 12-hour shifts.The company is increasing headcount at the plant and is now up to 130 employees.The company hired Sheetal Shah, a mobile-phone mogul who’s spent the last decade scaling tech companies to unbelievable levels, to advise on new manufacturing practices.The company secured $300 million from investors and will dedicate a large portion of that money to increasing production quickly. Appelgren told CNET that in no way is this shortage insurmountable. Rather, “like other successful startups, we are facing short-term ramp-up challenges resulting from demand greatly outstripping supply.”This isn’t the company’s first foray into supersized production: Back in 2017, Impossible Foods showed its first signs of significant growth when it opened its plant after promising to bring the Impossible Burger to 1,000 restaurants nationwide. They’ve far surpassed that goal now. For now, Appelgren urges Impossible fans to call restaurants ahead of time to ask about current availability and future shipments of the product.last_img read more
