Holland Police Youth Club (PYC) is the only team to deliver two wins in two starts since the new season of the South Central Confederation Super League. The St Elizabeth side earned their second straight win after spanking Clarendon’s Kemps hill FC 5-1. Edward Barrett scored four goals (15th, 19th, 44th and 65th minutes). He was joined on the scoresheet by Shawn Genus in the 86th minute. The lone scorer for Kemps hill FC was Gasord McKinley in the 70th minute. Holland PYC’s first win came against Hillstars of Manchester. Two St Catherine teams highlighted the second round with wins. Tru-Juice, who drew last week against Sporting Central, hosted Hillstars and won 3-0. Dwayne Thompson opened the scoring in the 21st minute before Mano Nelson netted a brace in the 86th and 90+ minutes. The second St Catherine winner, Dunbeholden, defeated counterparts Rivoli United FC 2-0. Sporting Central were able to eke out a victory against Ricam Academy with a single goal from the boots of Ramoy Parkins in the 39th minute. Southborough, buoyed by a 2-1 win over Westchester, lead the York Pharmacy Portmore Division Two Football League after three rounds of competition. Second-place Racing United (six points) gained free points from Waterford’s no-show, while Edgewater, also on six points from two games, have shown good early-season form. Braeton United, also on six points, defeated Three West 2-0 to keep close to the leader, while fifth-place Cumberland (five points) drew 1-1 with Caymanas Gardens. The competition continues tomorrow with five games. At Cumberland High School, Braeton United will play Caymanas Gardens at 1 p.m., while Cumberland face Westchester at 3 p.m. At the Racing playfield, Edgewater face Southborough at 1 p.m., before the 3 p.m. kick-off between Racing and Three West. Porus take Peter Bunting Football finals Frith, Campbell spark in Ron Hamilton 5K Porus, playing on their home turf, claimed big bucks, while landing the Peter Bunting Football league following a crushing 5-1 win over Inverness in a final played under lights. It was a case of reclaiming the title they have now won three times in the last five years. They secured $200,00 for the championship win while Inverness collected $100,000. Defending champions Hanbury, who were knocked out in the semi-finals, failed to turn up for the third-place play-off against Georges Valley. Those two teams, however, are earmarked to collect $40,000. The big Porus payday was set up by double strikes from Dalton Davis and Paul Bogle. Rappa Pam Pam Shoot in Mandeville tomorrow Holland lead South Central Super League Southborough lead Portmore Division two Obrien Frith and Britney Campbell won the respective male and female divisions of the third Ron Hamilton 5K road races in Christiana last week Sunday. The event is organised by Holmwood Technical in honour of their former principal, Ron Hamilton. The top male walk road racer in the parish of Manchester this year Jon, Oliphant, predictably won his event. His main challenger representing Holmwood was disqualified. Tomorrow, the spotlight will be on the inaugural mid-island road race at Kirkvine Sports Club, Shooter’s Hill, Manchester, starting at 2 p.m. This year’s event will honour retired multi-sports administrator Pat Anderson. The Manchester Rifle and Pistol Club will host its final competitive shooting tournament of the year tomorrow in the form of ‘Rappa Pam Pam’, at its Lincoln range. It’s the usual year-end closure and the indications it will be the biggest turnout of fans and shooters for the year. In two practice matches this week, club president Orville Henriques and Ellsworth Dixon have shown good form. The match will feature 10 stages with a round count of 150. All match competitors will purchase ammo at members’ price. There will be trophies for 1st and 2nd place in each division. There will also be free food, refreshment and more for all. Admission at the gate is $1,200 for adults and $600 for children. Cumberland Kick-off Fun day for Boxing Day Ken’s Wildflower showed grit and determination to carve out a 250-248 win during a gruelling final to dethrone six-time champions Passagefort United in the MP Colin Fagan South East St Catherine Inter-Constituency Domino Tournament at the Edgewater Community Centre last Sunday. Passagefort looked in dominant form as they led by 13 points (128-115) at half-time. However, Ken’s Wildflower made a remarkable comeback and won in a countdown. At the end of the final, MP for South East St Catherine Colin Fagan, and Gerald Stephens, president of the Jamaica Domino Federation, participated in the presentation of the championship trophy to he winners. The Jamaica Domino Federation Portmore/ St Catherine League will be launched tomorrow at the Garveymeade Sports Club, starting at 1p.m. The City of Kingston Cooperative Credit Union has been confirmed as part sponsors of the upcoming domino league. An exhibition match will be a feature of the launch. Registrations are flowing in for this year’s Cumberland New Testament Church of God Kick-Off Fun day – a six-a-side one day football tournament on Boxing Day. The tournament has been dormant in the last two years and hence its return this year is being viewed with high anticipation. All the communities within the Ritches to Spaldings area in north Clarendon are welcomed to participate. The registration fee is $2,500 but the payday for the winner is a princely $50,000, according to the organisers. The one-day tournament will be hosted at the Cumberland All-Age School grounds. Teams willing to register can get in touch with the church representatives at 871-7974 or 336-8633. Portmore/St Catherine Domino League this Sunday Ken’s Wildflower win domino title
ICOS welcomes Budget 2016 as targeted, balanced and fair for the agri-food sectorThe Irish Co-operative Organisation Society Ltd today welcomed the budget announcement by the Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan and Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin.ICOS represents over 130 co-operatives in Ireland – including the Irish dairy processing co-operatives and livestock marts – whose associated businesses have a combined turnover in the region of €14 billion, with some 150,000 individual members, employing 12,000 people in Ireland, and a further 24,000 people overseas. The ICOS President, Martin Keane welcomed the overall budgetary package for the farming community as “targeted, balanced and fair”.Mr. Keane stated that changes to income tax including the ‘Earned Income Tax Credit’ for the self-employed is a very welcome initiative. According to Mr. Keane, “the Earned Income Tax Credit to the value of €550 is a welcome initial first step by the Government to ensure equity and fairness in the income tax system.”ICOS also welcomed initiatives in today’s budget to extend stock relief measures for a further three years and actions to support farm succession.Mr. Keane added “Budgetary supports related to farm succession are extremely welcome as targeted agri taxation measures can assist with succession planning and improving the age profile of the farming sector, which is a critical challenge facing the entire agri-food sector. “The agri-food sector stands to benefit from the Knowledge Development Box proposal with a reduced rate of corporation tax for R&D spend. This is a positive measure which will enable the entire food industry to develop new products, add value and compete internationally, which ultimately will deliver the best possible return for farmers.“ICOS also welcomes the announcement by Minister Howlin to allocate additional funding to support agri-environmental and capital investment schemes under the Rural Development Programme. In addition, funding for a range of new schemes under the Seafood Development Programme is also welcome.”However, Mr. Keane expressed disappointment at the exclusion of an income deferral scheme in this year’s budget.Mr. Keane stated, “We believe that an opportunity was missed to provide for measures to help farmers to manage volatility in this year’s budget. A suite of volatility measures including taxation initiatives will be required to help farmers cope with fluctuations in milk price. ICOS urges the government to give greater consideration to the possibility of an income deferral scheme and we will continue to engage with government on this matter.” BUDGET 2016: CO-OP GROUPS WELCOME BUDGET was last modified: October 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:budget 2016co-op groups

Manchester United star Marcos Rojo could still leave the club this summer and is a target for Fenerbahce, according to Turkish newspaper Ajansspor.Everton were previously tracking him but a move failed to materialise leaving the Argentine international in limbo. Manchester United star Marcos Rojo celebrates scoring for Argentina at World Cup 2018. 1 The Toffees ended up swooping for Yerry Mina instead, but there is still a chance Rojo could leave Old Trafford.Manchester United are reportedly willing to sanction a loan move and Fenerbahce are interested in him.The Turkish giants want to bring in a new centre-back before the end of August and Rojo has made his way onto their shortlist.Fenerbahce are also exploring deals for Celtic’s Dedryck Boyata and Bruno Martins Indi of Stoke City.

Here’s a collection of news items that deserve quick notice:Mars Rumbles: Mars still has minor earthquakes, says Space.com, That’s without plate tectonics, “But scientists don’t know exactly how Mars is constructed.” The Mars Exploration Rovers, meanwhile, awaking from a winter’s nap, are still gathering science data long past their expected lifetime. Evidence for past water is being claimed, even though it would have been loaded with epsom salt. Mars Express has photographed the southern highlands, an area of thick volcanic ash deposits, wind-blown dust, and dust devils.A-Maize-ing Genes: The genome of maize (corn) shows some surprises, according to EurekAlert. It has 59,000 genes, and 22% of them are unique compared to closely related species. That’s more difference than between apes and humans. “It looks like significant evolutionary change happened in a relatively short time,” and maybe there was a merger in corn’s past. Or so the story goes. “Plants are continually faced with a variety of seasonal challenges and assaults by a series of different pests which may well lead to evolution on a fast track.” Makes sense when you don’t think about it.Molecular Clock Fixed? Nature Science Update reports on a French team that developed a new computer model for getting the so-called “molecular clock” – the rate genes mutate – to correlate with the fossil record (see 04/20/2004 headline). They calibrated assumed evolutionary changes in the genes to six fossil species, and then built an evolutionary tree based on it. Not all are convinced, though. In one case, the tree says that a red alga appeared after its fossil.Cave Dating: In Earth and Planetary Science Letters Oct. 15, pp. 265-273, an international team dated aragonite formations in a South African cave. They extracted thin cores from two speleothems. They claimed the cores correlate with climate, but there were anomalies. The trace minerals don’t correlate with rainfall, the cores don’t correlate with temperature, and the two stalactites don’t correlate with each other; one outgrew the other six-fold in an inferred 11-year period. This led them to conclude that “the constant speleothem growth rate we assume is simplistic. The growth rate of the speleothem undoubtedly varies within an annual cycle (growing faster in the rainy season and slower over the dry season) and between different years (growing more in wet years and less in drier ones).”DNA Repair Team Can Dance: An article in Cell last month (118:6, 17 Sep 2004, 666-668, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2004.09.006) described what your DNA repair team (see 01/04/2002 headline) does as a sophisticated kind of ballet, with both orchestra and dancers: “Repair of damaged DNA is a dynamic process that requires careful orchestration of a multitude of enzymes, adaptor proteins, and chromatin constituents…. ” Double-stranded DNA breaks are particularly deadly, but the repairmen, like NYFD heroes, know just what to do, and they can dance:But how is the multifaceted DSB response “choreographed” so that each molecular “dancer” involved knows when to arrive on the stage, how long and with whom to perform, and when to give way to those that are scheduled to follow? Amazingly, nature has provided cells with a score for a fascinating play called “DNA repair.” Although we have known some of the “dancers” for quite awhile, only now are we actually beginning to see the performance unfold in front of our eyes.The authors refer to a paper in the same issue by Columbia University scientists, Michael Lisby et al., entitled “Choreography of the DNA Damage Response.” A related story using the choreography metaphor was posted on EurekAlert.Junk DNA Promoted: Another story strengthens the case that there is no such thing as “junk DNA” (see 05/27/2004 and 05/23/2003 headlines). A story posted on EurekAlert says that mobile elements called retrotransposons, long thought to be junk from retroviruses that propagate at random in the genome, actually provide “ a large repository of start sites for initiating gene expression” that is apparently very important for developing embryos. “Therefore, more than one third of the mouse and human genomes, previously thought to be non-functional, may play some role in the regulation of gene expression and promotion of genetic diversity.” See also the writeup in Science News 166:16, week of Oct. 16, 2004, p. 243.Fossil Fool’s Gold: A paper in Geology this month examines the fine preservation of China’s Chengjiang fossils (see 07/22/2004 headline) and suggests that pyrite was involved. “The apparent explosive diversification of animal life in the Cambrian is one of the most significant events in the history of life and continues to be controversial,” the paper begins. Another paper in the same issue that describes a discovery of Early Cambrian bilaterian embryos and larvae from China states, “In contrast to the Precambrian, evidence for the structural diversity of embryos and larvae in Cambrian strata is mounting.”Flip & Flap over ID Paper: The journal that published Stephen Meyer’s intelligent design paper (see 09/24/2004 headline) has now issued a statement that the article should not have been published. To Mark Hartwig writing in Access Research Network’s Weekly Wedge Update, though, this can hardly help their reputation. Meanwhile, the Discovery Institute continues to publish line-by-line refutations of criticisms coming from pro-Darwin forces.Fall Colors Delight Tourists, Confuse Scientists: When leaves turn red and yellow, there’s a “reason for the season,” says National Geographic News, but then fails to find it. Yellow is explained by the plant shutting down chlorophyll (green) production, which otherwise swamps the yellow color that is always present. But production of xanthophylls (red) is costly; is it for sunscreen? Antioxidants? Fungal protection? No one knows for sure why deciduous forests turn a riot of color in the fall (see 10/19/2001 headline). One thing is for sure: humans like it.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
HTTPS Enabled by DefaultFor an additional layer of security, all Wave traffic is by default encrypted via HTTPS, a protocol for secure communications. That represents a big change in Google’s standard policy regarding use of this protocol. It wasn’t until July of 2008 that Gmail users were even given the option to encrypt messages using SSL and to enable it, you had to go into your settings and make a change – something that most mainstream users would never have bothered with. By the end of 2008, Google was only offering SSL as a feature in its other Google Apps programs if users were on either the Premier or Education editions. That meant that for non-paying consumer users, Google Docs, Calendar and other online offerings were only available via unencrypted HTTP sessions. Today, little has changed. Still, only users of Premier and Education Editions have access to SSL and it’s not switched on by default. The protocol is now available for Gmail, Chat, Calendar, Docs and Sites but not the Start page, Google Video or the Google Talk desktop client. Consumers using free Google apps like Docs still don’t have SSL unless they type it in the address bar manually. D’alesandre admitted that switching on encryption in Wave slows down the service a little (which probably explains the company’s hesitance to switch it on in other products, too), but they ultimately decided that the security it provides was worth it. Whitelisting Kills the NoiseA third security feature of sorts coming to Wave in the future is the ability to do “whitelisting.” Wave users will be able to select which people they want to collaborate with and place them on a whitelist of approved persons. Only those who are on the list will be able to contact you via Wave and everyone else will be ignored. That feature should certainly help to address the concerns certain folks have about Wave’s “noise level,” to some, an overwhelming amount of activity that led them to call out Wave as a distraction and a time-waster instead of the futuristic productivity product it intends to be. By allowing those who can’t seem to embrace Wave’s cacophony the ability to limit their collaborators, Wave could transfer from noisy attention killer to useful tool in an instant. Of the three features, the first two are already in place. No date was given on the whitelisting feature, only that it will be “coming soon.” Tags:#Google#news#NYT#Product Reviews#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting sarah perez Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Google Wave, the company’s new real-time collaboration platform currently in private beta, is more secure than traditional email, claims the company. According to Greg D’alesandre, Google Wave product manager, that’s because Google has focused on addressing privacy and security issues as the product was built from the ground up instead of waiting to deal with them later. Speaking to media in Sydney today, he detailed several of Wave’s security features which are meant to stop criminals from exploiting the new technology and harming Wave users. Built In Features to Prevent SpoofingAs reported by Australian news outlet ITNews, Wave has multiple levels of security which are designed to prevent email spoofing. Spoofing, meaning when you receive an email that claims to be from either a person or company you know but is actually from someone else – a hacker in most cases. D’alesandre says the Wave protocol is more secure because it includes something he jokingly refers to as “crypto fairy dust.” That’s obviously meant to be a simple and fun way to explain the security complexities built into Wave which involve detailed authentication mechanisms to keep users safe from malicious attacks. In Wave, every bit of info you receive from another Wave user has already been authenticated as to its origin so you can be assured that they are who they say they are. “You know you are getting the Wave from the person that is sending it to you and it has not changed mid-stream. This is a very big problem in current communication technologies – data can be changed mid stream and you will never know,” said D’alesandre.
The National Green Tribunal has directed the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change to finalise the National Policy on Forest Fire within two weeks, after noting that forest fires generally occur in the month of April.A Bench headed by NGT acting chairperson Jawad Rahim said, “Though we have acceded to grant of time, but in view of the fact that forest fires normally occur in the month of April every year, we direct the MoEF&CC to get all the requisite approval that are required from the Minister and give finality to the National Policy on Forest Fire and make it implementable.”The green panel had earlier come down heavily on the Centre for remaining a “mute spectator” to the recurring forest fires in the hill States and asked the Environment Ministry to formulate a national policy.The directions came while the Bench was hearing a plea filed by senior advocate Rajiv Dutta who had claimed that “if no urgent steps are taken, further devastation would be caused to a huge chunk of flora and fauna which are considered wealth of the nation”.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday clarified that his government has no plans to ban khaini (processed tobacco product) now.Mr. Kumar also asserted that there were no differences in NDA in Bihar. “As of now the government has no plan to ban khaini…it’s a long term process and we’re mulling over alternatives for farmers engaged in khaini production in the state,” Mr. Kumar said while speaking to journalists on the sidelines of weekly Lok Samvad programme.Earlier, the Bihar government had mulled the ban of sale and consumption of khaini in the state, Consumption of khaini was found as one of the major causes of mouth cancer in the state.Mr. Kumar, though, further said that the government was planning on making an amendment in the state’s prohibition and excise law. “I’ve cleared each and every query on prohibition in the state but still some people keep writing over it…but let me clear here that people at large are satisfied with it,” he stated.“We need to make an amendment in the law as certain points have come to my notice, like to create alternative livelihoods for those who were earlier engaged in this business,” said Mr. Kumar.He also stated that there were no differences in NDA in Bihar and said, “It was all speculations in media and social media. Everyone is working smoothly,” he said.
