Spurs can compete with Europes best – Rose

first_imgTottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose believes the team can compete with best teams across Europe after their performance in the group stages of the competition last season.Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished first in a group that had both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, and Spurs recorded comfortable home victories over both clubs to record an easy passage to the second round where they were eliminated by Juventus.“We went to the Bernabeu and were unlucky not to win that game and then when we played them at Wembley we outplayed them, and not just them, Dortmund as well,” Rose said, according to Sky Sports.“We’ve proved that we can do it. At the minute we’re winning ugly and we’re just waiting for the performance to go with the victories.”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.Rose was instrumental during Spurs’ 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, winning the penalty that handed the club its second goal of the day after he was fouled by Florent Hardergjonaj in the box.After speculation linking Rose with a move from Spurs in the summer, the England international is grateful he remains central to Pochettino’s plans.“I’m just happy to be playing,” Rose added. “It’s probably something I didn’t expect four or five weeks ago. I’m just happy I’m in a position to be selected and I want it to continue.”last_img read more

Fletcher loved playing with Rooney and Ronaldo

first_imgManchester United’ own Darren Fletcher, revealed what it was like to play with two of the best forwards in the club’s history: Rooney and Ronaldo.The generation that won the last Champions League at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson was truly brilliant, it was filled with talented players like Wayne Rooney or Cristiano Ronaldo and people like Darren Fletcher had the honor of playing alongside both players.The former Scottish player was able to give a better insight into his career with the Red Devils, he talked about many topics but he was especially excited to mention both of the best players in the modern era who also happened to play alongside him at Manchester United.When Fletcher spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo, the Scotsman revealed that there was a sensation he would become the best player in the world from the very start of his career as the Portuguese forward was a very dedicated athlete.Fletcher first confessed that a lot of people doubted Cristiano Ronaldo’s resolve and determination, but somehow he felt that the star would get to where he wanted sooner rather than later.Out of all the players he shared a locker room with, Darren feels like Ronaldo was the biggest example of how to be a professional and he always followed that example as a player.The brilliant nickname that Cristiano Ronaldo gave Wayne Rooney at Manchester United… https://t.co/vGRHinpEPq pic.twitter.com/EC1QGVpY28— SPORTbible (@sportbible) November 6, 2018It was quite evident that Cristiano was a winner from the very first day he arrived in Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon, Fletcher was there almost from the very start and he recalled the first years of Ronaldo’s career on Monday Night Football for Sky Sports.“He had a mindset that he was going to be the best player in the world from the day when he came into the club,” said Fletcher during the interview.“He took training to another level. At first, people loved the desire but he did get stick for it with people saying: ‘It’s easier said than done.’ But people respected it and liked that mentality of wanting to be the best.”“There were times when he was putting ankle weights on for training and doing fast feet. The lads were laughing at him but he didn’t care and it didn’t deter him.”“Ultimately people respected it. The lads saw it as a bit of banter but deep down they respect that work rate, that desire, and that sheer determination to be the best player in the world, and he went on to achieve it,” added Darren Fletcher on the Sky Sports program.Ronaldo on Wayne RooneyRomelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“I miss him. The future, nobody knows, maybe we’ll play one day together again.” pic.twitter.com/eCp5WAevJM— Sánchez (@OMDItsme) November 5, 2018During the long interview about his career at Manchester United, Darren Fletcher also remembered Wayne Rooney and how both players were the youngest on the squad.Being the newcomers on Sir Alex Ferguson’s team meant that both players developed a unique connection: “Wayne was fantastic,” said Darren.“We were two of the youngest in the dressing room and we built up a good relationship very early. There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked.”“You could tell Wayne was going to go on and be a Manchester United great. The only worry was would a Real Madrid or someone like that come in for him, because that was quite possible.”“But there was no doubt that he was going to go on and win everything, go on and be club captain and end up England and Manchester United’s leading goal scorer – what an achievement.”“I don’t think he gets the appreciation he deserves. Still, people don’t realize how good Wayne Rooney was, and always was, at Manchester United. And again, he was a team player. He sacrificed himself at times for the good of the team,” he concluded.With 80 caps for @ScotlandNT and over 200 appearances for @ManUtd, Darren Fletcher has played alongside and against some of the best around! 💫🗣 Got a question for him?Tweet it to us using #MNF and it could feature on the show! pic.twitter.com/H3kbNmZNhF— Sky Sports MNF (@SkySportsMNF) November 5, 2018What do you think about Darren Fletcher’s take on Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney during his days at Manchester United?

Sony X800M2 4K Bluray player with Dolby Vision coming for 300

first_imgSony With Oppo bowing out of the race in 2018, Sony is one of the only manufacturers still catering to the high end when it comes to 4K Blu-ray players. With the new X800M2, announced at CES, it also fixes something the company left out of the original X800: Dolby Vision. While the cheaper X700 offered it (and hence earned our recommendation instead) the expected Dolby Vision update skips the X800 and comes to the new M2 instead. Dolby Vision is one of several competing standards of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, which aims to increase picture quality through increased colors and contrast in 4K movies. The new X800M2 supports 4K Ultra HD playback, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in addition to 4K upscaling. Like the original, the player supports Hi-Res Audio and DSD as well as SACD/DVD-A. The Sony will also include 4K streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube, though it’s unclear if it also supports HDR . Unlike the X1000, the X800M2 comes with digital outputs only. The X800M2 will be available in mid-May for $300.Originally published on Jan 7 2019 8:15 PMUpdate, April 18:  Added pricing and availability CES 2019: Every story so far: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.

Santa Fe High School Had A Shooting Plan Armed Officers And Practice

first_img Share REUTERS/Jonathan Bachman/Via Texas TribunePolice tape in front of Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas on May 20, 2018.They, like so many others, thought they had taken the steps to avoid this.The school district had an active-shooter plan, and two armed police officers walked the halls of the high school. School district leaders had even agreed last fall to eventually arm teachers and staff under the state’s school marshal program, one of the country’s most aggressive and controversial policies intended to get more guns into classrooms.They thought they were a hardened target, part of what’s expected today of the American public high school in an age when school shootings occur with alarming frequency. And so a death toll of 10 was a tragic sign of failure and needing to do more, but also a sign, to some, that it could have been much worse.“My first indication is that our policies and procedures worked,” J.R. “Rusty” Norman, president of the school district’s board of trustees, said Saturday, standing exhausted at his front door. “Having said that, the way things are, if someone wants to get into a school to create havoc, they can do it.”The mass shooting — which killed 10 people and wounded 10 others in this rural community outside Houston — again highlighted the despairing challenge at the center of the ongoing debate over how to make the nation’s schools safer. It also hints at a growing feeling of inevitability, a normalization of what should be impossible tragedies.The gunman in Santa Fe used a pistol and a shotgun, firearms common to many South Texas homes, firearms he took from his father, police said. So there were no echoes of the calls to ban assault rifles or raise the minimum age for gun purchases that came after the shooting three months ago in Parkland, Fla.Most residents here didn’t blame any gun for the tragedy down the street. Many of them pointed to a lack of religion in schools.“It’s not the guns. It’s the people. It’s a heart problem,” said Sarah Tassin, 61. “We need to bring God back into the schools.” Texas politicians are pushing to focus on school security — the hardening of targets. Gov. Greg Abbott said he planned to hold roundtable discussions starting Tuesday on how to make schools even more secure. One idea he and other state officials mentioned was limiting the number of entrances to the facilities. Rep. Randy Weber, R-Friendswood, said Congress eventually would consider legislation focused on “hardening targets and adding more school metal detectors and school police officers.”But the horror in Santa Fe shows that there are limits there, too. Norman said he saw school security as a way to control, not prevent, school violence. And the school district had some practice. In February, two weeks after the Parkland shooting, Santa Fe High went into lockdown after a false alarm of an active-shooter situation, resulting in a huge emergency response. The school won a statewide award for its safety program.“We can never be over-prepared,” Norman said. “But we were prepared.”His school board approved a plan in November to allow some school staff members to carry guns, joining more than 170 school districts in Texas that have made similar plans. But Santa Fe was still working on it, Norman said. People needed to be trained. Details needed to be worked out, such as a requirement that school guns fire only frangible bullets, which break into small pieces and are unlikely to pass through victims, as a way to limit the danger to innocent students.All of these efforts, Norman said, are “only a way to mitigate what is happening.”The search for red flags about the alleged gunman’s intentions continued Saturday — another familiar hallmark of school shootings. Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the 17-year-old student who police said confessed to the shooting, was being held without bond at a jail in Galveston. Wearing a trench coat, he allegedly opened fire in an art class, moving through the room shooting at teachers and students, and talking to himself. He approached a supply closet where students were barricaded inside, and he shot through the windows saying “surprise,” said Isabelle Laymance, 15.The gunman shot a school police officer who approached him, then talked with other officers, offering to surrender. The entire episode lasted a terrifying 30 minutes, according to witnesses and court records.The Pagourtzis family released a statement Saturday saying they are “shocked and confused” by what happened and that the incident “seems incompatible with the boy we love.” Nicholas Poehl, the Galveston attorney for Pagourtzis, said his client appeared “pretty dazed” when he met with him Saturday and that it would take time for him to learn what happened.The alleged gunman’s classmates and parents said they saw no signs of trouble before the shooting, though some said he had seemed somewhat depressed in recent months.Bertha Bland, whose grandson is good friends with Pagourtzis, said she knew the teenager well and described him as “an outstanding kid” and a good student. Scott Pearson, whose son played football with Pagourtzis, described him as a quiet, normal kid. He didn’t talk to him much when he took him home from football practices, but he never got the impression that he was dangerous. He noticed that Pagourtzis regularly wore a trench coat but didn’t think much of it.“Kids do weird stuff,” Pearson said. “I don’t understand when my son wears a hoodie out in 90-degree heat, either.” Pagourtzis improved as a football player between sophomore and junior years, moving from second to first string as a defensive tackle on the junior varsity squad, according to Rey Montemayor, an 18-year old senior quarterback. Pagourtzis spent a lot of time in the weight room. Eventually Pagourtzis, who wore number 69, was doing reps of 185 pounds on the bench press.  “He worked hard,” Montemayor said. “Even got stronger than me.”On the team, Pagourtzis was well liked and respected, even though he mostly kept to himself, ear buds in his ears in the hallways and in the locker room. He was “very normal, cool,” Montemayor said. “He would joke around but was also quiet — not an open book.”Local and federal officials revealed little new information about the shooting or the investigation on Saturday. So far, investigators have not found any link to terrorism or political extremism in the suspect’s background that would offer a motive for the attack, according to a person close to the investigation.The evidence recovered in the first day of the probe suggests that the suspect was a disturbed young man without any particular ideology, though it is still early in the investigation and new facts could emerge, the person said.Authorities here said police reacted as they should have to the shooting incident, praising the initial response, which included two school police officers trying to intervene, though they have not yet provided details of the interaction that led to the teen’s surrender. Galveston County Judge Mark Henry described the quick actions of the school police officers as “very critical.” Santa Fe Independent School District Police Chief Walter Braun said at a news conference that the police officer wounded in the shooting was in “critical but stable condition” at a hospital. He said his officers “did what they were trained for. They went in immediately.”Some students, escorted by police, were briefly allowed back on the school campus to retrieve backpacks and their vehicles. But the high school remained cordoned off as a crime scene.The town did not come to a standstill as it dealt with the aftermath of the shooting: People still ran errands and had yard sales and barbecues. The community library closed “out of respect for the victims,” but organizers of a library benefit sale decided to hold their event as planned in the lobby and parking lot. The Santa Fe High baseball team was still scheduled for a playoff game Saturday night after canceling one on the day of the shooting.The shooting didn’t seem to rattle beliefs or prompt the calls for change that followed the Parkland shooting. Norman Franzke, 69, whose granddaughter safely escaped Santa Fe High, noted that guns have been part of the culture here for generations. When he attended, students kept shotguns on racks in their pickups, ready for hunting after school.“I don’t think this will change the mentality of this community,” Franzke said. “There may be some changes in how kids enter and leave school. But even then, he was a student, so he would still have had access.”At Red Cap restaurant, a popular diner down the road from the high school, the sign outside no longer advertised fried green tomatoes and Boudin balls. It had been changed to read “Prayers for Santa Fe.”Inside, Tassin, who works at Red Cap, teared up as she thought about all the teens and their parents who stop in there. She considers them family. But she didn’t blame guns for Friday’s shooting. She didn’t blame mental health. She didn’t know where to lay blame. There had been so many school shootings. And now, at Santa Fe High. Something was going on, she said. But she didn’t know what.Devlin Barrett, Julie Tate, Alice Crites and Jennifer Jenkins in Washington contributed to this report.last_img read more

Rare arterial switch surgery saves life of infant in city

first_imgKolkata: A rare arterial switch surgery has given a fresh lease of life to a month-old baby who was brought to a city hospital from Jharkhand’s Dhanbad. The patient was in critical condition when his family members brought him to the private hospital in Kolkata. The 38-day-old boy was taken to a local doctor who told the family members that there was nothing seriously wrong with the patient. However, as his condition deteriorated, the family members decided to shift the baby to Kolkata. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThe baby was severely dehydrated when taken to the hospital. He was admitted to the hospital under Dr Subhendu Mandal. After primary investigation, Dr Mandal and his team put the baby under ventilation. Soon, he started the baby with prostaglandin infusion to stabilise his condition. The baby was diagnosed with transposition of great arteries with small patent ductus arteriosus. The doctors performed the arterial switch procedure on the patient, to correct transposition of the great arteries.

An accurate anatomical diagnosis was done by echocardiography to get a clear picture of his condition. A thorough screening of comorbidity factors like infection, poor nutrition, deranged liver and kidney function and abnormal neurological condition helped Dr Mandal to take the correct medical decision. This was an extremely critical case for the doctors as the mother had lost her babies in two previous occasions. Dr Mandal, senior consultant, Department of Pediatric Cardiology, who carried out the operation, said: “Such a rare defect happens to 1 in 3,300 newborn infants. Success rate in these cases is less. In the Western world, we have only 3% mortality, while developing world stands at 15%. It was a difficult decision for us to carry out the operation.

Strange new kiosks showing up in 11 states Offic

first_imgStrange new kiosks showing up in 11 states?Officials are expected to deploy strange new kiosks in 11 states… with 21 more states coming onboard. It’s not a new type of ATM, voting machine, or bitcoin exchange station. Instead, it’s part of something we call The Greatest Day in Stock Market History. Click here for the full story By Justin Spittler, editor, Casey Daily Dispatch“How many people have thought about buying Greek stocks?”I heard Peter Boockvar ask this question two weeks ago. He was speaking at the New Orleans Investment Conference.Boockvar is the chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, a $3.5 billion wealth management firm. He’s also the editor of The Boock Report, a macro investment letter.When he asked the question, maybe one out of a hundred or so people in the ballroom raised a hand.And why would anyone? Greek stocks have been obliterated.The Athens Stock Exchange is down 20% since the start of the year… and down 85% since 2008, when the country was absolutely rocked by the last global financial crisis.Greece’s economy is also a mess. It’s shrunk 26% since 2008. And unemployment is running at 20%. That’s five times the U.S. unemployment rate.This is why most investors want nothing to do with Greek stocks. And that’s exactly why you should give them a look… — Recommended Link Recommended Link • As regular readers know, we’re contrarians at Casey Research… We believe it pays to buy stocks other investors have left for dead.This is how legendary investors like Warren Buffett, Stan Druckenmiller, and Jim Rogers made billions. It’s also how Doug Casey built his fortune.Of course, Doug would be the first to tell you that you shouldn’t buy something just because it’s been beaten down. You should also have a reason why that asset will appreciate in value.And we have that with Greek stocks.I’ll tell you about the safest way to speculate on Greek stocks in a second. But first, let me tell you why Boockvar thinks Greek stocks could soon rip higher. • Kyriakos Mitsotakis could be Greece’s next prime minister… Mitsotakis is a Harvard-educated politician and the leader of the New Democracy party.But unlike most Greek politicians, Mitsotakis has different plans for Greece. He doesn’t want to turn the country into a welfare state. Instead, he wants to spur investment.And he plans to do this in a few ways. Number one, he wants to green light several major projects, including a gold mine in northern Greece and the development of the former international airport at Elliniko.These projects haven’t gotten off the ground because the amount of legal and bureaucratic red tape in Greece is suffocating.That’s something Mitsotakis wants to change.Together, these projects are worth about €11 billion ($12.7 billion). That might not sound like much money. But that kind of investment would have a huge impact on Greece’s $200 billion economy.Mitsotakis also wants to cut corporate taxes from 29% to 20%. And he wants to reduce property taxes by 30% to offset measures imposed by the Greek government during the last financial crisis.Mitsotakis believes these measures will restore confidence in Greece’s economy and attract outside capital:This is our biggest bet – to convince everyone, the markets, the creditors, investors and of course the Greek people; to build confidence in the country and the new government.And that’s exactly the sort of thing Greece needs.Unfortunately, there’s no way to know if Mitsotakis will come out on top when Greece holds elections next October.But his New Democracy party is currently leading in the polls. Do NOT let them place a big ‘Aerial Tower’ outside your bedroom windowMillions of weird-looking cell phone towers are springing up like MUSHROOMS. Estimates range from a few hundred thousand… to a few million nationwide within seven years. Why are so many people concerned? • If this continues, we could soon see investors “price in” a Mitsotakis win in Greek stocks… And that’s something you’d obviously want to get in front of. And sooner rather than later…As I mentioned, the Greek elections are not scheduled until October 2019. But government officials have said they could start as early as May.So consider betting on Greek stocks if you’re looking for an under-the-radar speculation with huge upside potential and little downside.You can easily do this by buying the Global X MSCI Greece ETF (GREK). This fund invests in 15 of the largest and most liquid companies in Greece.Just be sure to treat any investment in Greek stocks as a speculation. As always, don’t bet more money than you can afford to lose.Regards,Justin Spittler New Orleans, LA November 14, 2018Reader MailbagToday, readers respond to yesterday’s Dispatch: “Sessions Is Gone… Outright Marijuana Legalization to Come?”Promotion of legalized marijuana as an investment in the entertainment business is just flat-out wrong.

The award honored the hundreds of women who were victims of abuse by former U.S.A. Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar over multiple decades. Nassar was imprisoned on child pornography and sexual abuse charges after The Indianapolis Star reported on a pattern of incidences.At last night’s ceremony, the survivors spoke about the experiences they endured in a video that played prior to a series of remarks by current and former gymnasts Aly Raisman and Sarah Klein and former Michigan State University softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez. These women were also among those who provided statements at Nassar’s sentencing trial.Related: These Two Sexual Health Companies Have Responded Differently to the #MeToo MovementWatch the presentation, and read the complete transcript of Klein’s, Lopez’s and Raisman’s remarks at the 2018 ESPYs, below. Sarah Klein“It’s a privilege to stand up here with my sister survivors as we represent hundreds more who are not here tonight. “Make no mistake — we’re here on this stage to present an image for the world to see, a portrait of survival, a new vision of courage.“The abuse of Larry Nassar began 30 years ago with me. For 30 years, people at the United States Olympic Committee, U.S.A. Gymnastics and Michigan State University all placed money and medals above the safety of child athletes. Thirty years, until the work of Detective Lieutenant Andrea Munford of the Michigan State Police Department and Andrea Povilaitis, the assistant attorney general who prosecuted the case, finally putting our abuser away for life. “Speaking up and speaking out is not easy. Telling our stories of abuse, over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy. We’re sacrificing privacy, we’re being judged and scrutinized and it’s grueling and it’s painful, but it is time. “As a mother, I am here to say that we must start caring about children’s safety more than we care about adults’ reputations. And as a survivor, I’m here to say that if we just give one person the courage to use their voice, this is worth it. If one more victim of sexual abuse feels less alone tonight, then our suffering has meaning.” Tiffany Thomas Lopez“In my sport, softball, we typically measure ourselves with wins and losses. Well, the amount of loss is almost immeasurable. Tonight, we stand here, and it feels like we’re finally winning.“There are a lot of conversations in our society that we tiptoe around as if they’re something to avoid. I know in my life, people have looked that way at two issues extremely personal to me: race and sexual abuse. Sexual abuse claims victims in every race, showing no discrimination. Just like Arthur Ashe, I stand so very proud representing not only minorities, but all of us as humans, the human race. “I encourage those suffering to hold tight to your faith, and stand tall when speaking your truth. I’m here to tell you, you cannot silence the strong forever.”Aly Raisman“1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. These were the years we spoke up about Larry Nassar’s abuse. All those years, we were told, ‘You are wrong. You misunderstood. He’s a doctor. It’s OK. Don’t worry. We’ve got it covered. Be careful. There are risks involved.’ The intention? To silence us in favor of money, medals and reputation. “But we persisted, and finally, someone listened and believed us. This past January, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina showed a profound level of understanding by giving us each an opportunity to face our abuser, to speak our truth and feel heard. Thank you, Judge, for honoring our voices. For too long, we were ignored, and you helped us rediscover the power we each possess. You may never meet the hundreds of children you saved, but know they exist. “The ripple effect of our actions, or inactions, can be enormous. spanning generations. Perhaps the greatest tragedy of this nightmare is that it could have been avoided. Predators thrive in silence. It is all too common for people to choose to not get involved. Whether you act or do nothing, you are shaping the world we live in, impacting others. All we needed was one adult to have the integrity to stand between us and Larry Nassar. If just one adult had listened, believed and acted, the people standing before you on this stage would have never met him.“Too often, abusers, and enablers perpetuate suffering by making survivors feel their truth doesn’t matter. To the survivors out there, don’t let anyone write your story. Your truth does matter. You matter. And you are not alone.“We all face hardships. If we choose to listen and we choose to act with empathy, we can draw strength from each other. We may suffer alone, but we survive together.” –shares More than 140 women, including Aly Raisman, Sarah Klein and Tiffany Thomas Lopez, took the stage to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

How to Build Philanthropy Into Your Budget Even If Youre Not Google

first_img CEO of MEBO International and Skingenix How to Build Philanthropy Into Your Budget — Even If You’re Not Google Big-name companies like Google are doubling down on corporate philanthropy. Here’s how you can follow suit, no matter what your size. Next Article –shares Add to Queue Google has changed the way businesses look at email, word processing and file storage. But in addition, the search giant has taken steps to leave its mark on something outside the commercial world, something that can potentially save lives.That something is philanthropy. Google.org — the company’s nonprofit arm — donates 1 percent of Google’s total equity and profits to charity. Recently, moreover, the initiative has furthered its efforts in that sphere by focusing on actions, not just investments.With the Google.org Fellowship, employees will be able to spend up to six months offering their full-time expertise to nonprofits. In 2019 alone, Google will deploy between 40 and 60 people to nonprofit offices in numerous cities, offering 50,000 hours of skilled labor in fields like computer engineering, data analysis and artificial intelligence.Such deeply embedded philanthropy is something more and more customers have come to expect from the organizations they buy from and do business with. Philanthropy is not merely some hurdle to clear, however — it’s an invaluable enhancement that can be achieved by any company, regardless of its size or prestige.Related: Corporate Philanthropy: It’s Not Just Money That Changes The WorldNope, you’re not Google; but that’s okay.Even on a smaller scale, the impact of nonprofit pursuits can be immense. At my company, we’ve focused first on those modest efforts that provide hands-on experience and deepen understanding for our employees. For example, we’ve implemented a “day of action” that involves employees spending a day at a neighborhood school to plant trees, paint and otherwise beautify the school grounds.Projects like those build a sense of social responsibility and foster collaboration within your team. But without a clear vision of what will work for your organization’s long-term philanthropic goals, you won’t be able to clearly define end goals and measurable objectives — an all-too-common trap for many organizations.In truth, you don’t need Google’s resources or reach to bring this mindset to your company. You just need to keep these four approaches in mind:1. Don’t run from yourself.Philanthropy is more than throwing cash at random causes. You might make some headway with that approach, but it’s not the way to work social responsibility into your business model organically. When plotting a nonprofit journey, look at what your company can do or already does well. Once you’ve determined those strengths, figure out how philanthropy fits into that.Warby Parker and TOMS both meshed their desire to do good with their core business offerings, to create one-for-one initiatives for eyeglasses and shoes, respectively. Each company’s philanthropy model shows that it isn’t always necessary for businesses to think outside the box to make a social impact. Sometimes, whatever a company already does well can end up doing good for others.Related: 5 Easy Ways to Make Philanthropy Part of Your Company Culture2. Grow your efforts from the ground.Philanthropic causes often involve work in far-flung areas. And because you (usually) can’t move your company to the community you’re serving, you need to find ways to connect with organizations that are embedded in those communities.The University of Chicago employed this strategy by partnering with India-based Tata Trusts to address health, water sanitation and energy issues in that East Asian nation. With the university’s research prowess and Tata Trusts’s ground-level access and innovative approach to intervention, the union has allowed policymakers, academics, students and practitioners to make a difference in ways they otherwise could not.These kinds of ground-level partnerships can be invaluable. They smooth out the lines of communication, iron out logistics and generally enable your work to take root — no matter how far removed you might be.3. Lock arms for longer reach.If you work alone in your philanthropic endeavors, your potential impact is only as deep as your own expertise and resources. For greater reach, it’s critical to leverage strategic partnerships with others. Look for mutually beneficial relationships that can stimulate long-term results.One of my own nonprofits, the Human Heritage Project, recently partnered with Project Angel Food. That organization’s years of experience bringing food security to vulnerable people proved invaluable to our project goals. Collaborations like this make our mission to help the underserved possible. Partnerships also can lessen the financial and operational load a smaller company must carry with a nonprofit endeavor.Related: How You Can Identify and Optimize Nonprofit Partnerships4. Capture hearts by getting your hands dirty.Amid the busy nature of day-to-day operations, it can be tempting to outsource your corporate social responsiblity (CSR) work. But when you take a hands-off approach, you miss an opportunity to get your employees involved in the effort. Nothing can capture your team members’ hearts for the mission like getting their hands dirty.This need not involve sending employees overseas on a project, either. Computing company AMD recruits “Green Teams” among its staff to reduce cafeteria waste, save on energy consumption and curb water misuse across its own company. This internal effort allows employees to see the fruits of their labor and feel a sense of ownership in their corporate philanthropy — and AMD doesn’t have to break the bank to do it.If Google’s moves are any indication, corporate philanthropy initiatives increasingly are calling for these hands-on efforts. The good news? You don’t have to be Google to make a difference. You just have to be willing, able and patient enough to find the approach that works for your company.

VW to Offer to Buy Back Nearly 500000 US Diesel Cars Sources

first_img Volkswagen AG and U.S. officials have reached a framework deal under which the automaker would offer to buy back almost 500,000 diesel cars that used sophisticated software to evade U.S. emission rules, two people briefed on the matter said on Wednesday.The German automaker is expected to tell a federal judge in San Francisco Thursday that it has agreed to offer to buy back up to 500,000 2.0-liter diesel vehicles sold in the United States that exceeded legally allowable emission levels, the people said.That would include versions of the Jetta sedan, the Golf compact and the Audi A3 sold since 2009. The buyback offer does not apply to the bigger, 80,000 3.0-liter diesel vehicles also found to have exceeded U.S. pollution limits, including Audi and Porsche SUV models, the people said.U.S.-listed shares of Volkswagen rose nearly 6 percent to $30.95 following the news.VW in September admitted cheating on emissions tests for 11 million vehicles worldwide since 2009, damaging the automaker’s global image.As part of the settlement with U.S. authorities including the Environmental Protection Agency, Volkswagen has also agreed to a compensation fund for owners, a third person briefed on the terms said.The compensation fund is expected to represent more than $1 billion on top of the cost of buying back the vehicles, but it is not clear how much each owner might receive, the person said.Volkswagen may also offer to repair polluting diesel vehicles if U.S. regulators approve the proposed fix, the sources said.A VW spokeswoman, the EPA and the Justice Department declined to comment Wednesday.VW will pay cash compensation to owners who either sell their vehicles back or get them fixed, one of the people briefed on the matter said. Owners selling back their vehicles will get an additional cash payment on top of receiving the estimated value of the vehicles from before the emissions scandal became public in September 2015.Owners are expected to have around two years to decide whether to sell back vehicles or get them repaired. It is not clear whether VW will be allowed to resell vehicles they buy back, the source said.The framework deal with U.S. officials was reached after lengthy talks in recent days at the Washington law office of Robert Mueller. The former FBI director is the court appointed mediator named to help settle more than 500 civil suits filed against VW. The talks, which continued over the week, included all the government agencies and lead plaintiffs attorneys suing GM.Some elements of the settlement are still being worked out and details are not expected to be announced Thursday at a court hearing, the people briefed on the matter said. The final deal could still change before it is officially announced, they said.U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in March gave VW until Thursday “to announce a concrete proposal for getting the polluting vehicles off the road.”Breyer said in March the “proposal may include a vehicle buy-back plan or a fix approved by the relevant regulators that allows the cars to remain on the road with certain modifications.”A final settlement is also expected to include an environmental remediation fund to address excess pollution emitted by the U.S. vehicles since 2009.It is not clear if the deal will resolve the U.S. Justice Department’s civil suit filed in January against VW or if VW will agree to pay a civil penalty. VW also faces ongoing criminal investigations by the Justice Department and other prosecutors around the world.Separately, Germany’s Die Welt newspaper reported Wednesday that the deal to settle the case would involve it paying each affected customer $5,000. But a person briefed on the matter told Reuters that no decisions on how individual compensation will be awarded have been made.In December, VW said it was creating an independent claims program for owners of vehicles with excess emissions.It named compensation expert Ken Feinberg, who administered funds for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, BP Plc. Deepwater Horizon oil spill and General Motors Co. ignition switch crashes, to create and administer the program.(Reporting by David Shepardson; Editing by David Gregorio and Andrew Hay) Volkswagen Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business April 21, 2016 VW to Offer to Buy Back Nearly 500,000 U.S. Diesel Cars, Sources Say 4 min read 37shares Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel.center_img Add to Queue Image credit: simone mescolini | Shutterstock.com Next Article Reuters Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Neckstrengthening exercises can protect athletes from concussions

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jan 17 2019Rutgers researchers have proposed a solution for athletes at higher risk for sports-related concussions, such as football and soccer: Protect your head with neck-strengthening exercises in the pre-season.A paper by researchers at the Rutgers School of Health Professions, published in the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, examines previous studies on the role that the neck’s strength, size and posture play in reducing concussion risk. They also looked into the greater risk of head injury to female and young male athletes who play contact or impact sports, such as when heading a soccer ball.Related StoriesRepurposing a heart drug could increase survival rate of children with ependymomaTen-fold rise in tongue-tie surgery for newborns ‘without any real strong data’Study provides new insight into longitudinal decline in brain network integrity associated with agingBased on their findings and the clinical judgment of the research team, the Rutgers researchers developed recommendations that physical therapists and athletic trainers can use to protect athletes.These include performing a thorough cervical spine assessment as part of the pre-athletic participation exam; screening for pain because baseline reports of neck pain have been associated with increased concussion risk in young athletes; and providing interventions such as exercises to strengthen neck muscles.”Our ability to detect sports-related concussions has greatly improved, but our ability to prevent concussions and decrease post-injury outcomes remains limited,” said lead author Allison Brown, an assistant professor at the Rutgers School of Health Professions. “We have identified neck strength, size and posture as potential factors that reduce risk by lessening the magnitude of force upon impact. Thus, increasing neck strength and possibly size could substantially reduce risk or severity of injury or outcomes.”Concussions, which are caused by an impact that makes the brain move within the skull, can lead to problems with thinking, concentration, mood or other neurological changes. Additional symptoms can include dizziness and nausea.A neck that is stronger, thicker or aligned in a forward posture – with the ears ahead of rather than aligned with the shoulders – may reduce the amount of energy transferred to the brain during an impact, thus reducing the risk and severity of injury, said Carrie Esopenko, an assistant professor at the School of Health Professions and the report’s senior author.Women typically have less neck strength and experience a greater risk of concussion as well as greater severity of symptoms and longer duration of recovery compared with their male peers, Esopenko said.

27 million grant supports UIC researchers to study role of arsenic in

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 11 2019A five-year, $2.7 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences will help researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago answer basic questions about the role of arsenic in the development of diabetes and examine the mechanisms by which selenoproteins – found in the human body in 25 different forms – counter the effects of arsenic.Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by either a lack of adequate insulin or insulin resistance, which can cause dangerous spikes in blood sugar levels, as well as long-term complications such as blindness, kidney failure, amputations and cardiovascular disease. It is projected that diabetes will affect more than 693 million people globally by 2045.Recent evidence has implicated environmental pollutants, including arsenic, in the development of diabetes, but little is known about how arsenic exerts this effect.Related StoriesObese patients with Type 1 diabetes could safely receive robotic pancreas transplantUranium toxicity might have caused obesity and diabetes in Kuwait, finds new studyMothers with gestational diabetes transferring harmful ‘forever chemicals’ to their fetusArsenic currently contaminates drinking water sources used by more than 100 million people globally. More groundwater sources are expected to be affected by arsenic due to fracking, which produces arsenic-tainted wastewater that can seep into underground aquifers, explained Dr. Robert Sargis, assistant professor in the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism in the UIC College of Medicine and principal investigator on the grant.”We really need to know how arsenic affects the cells that produce insulin in the pancreas and identify factors that might counteract arsenic, such as selenoproteins, which we know have a protective effect, but what we don’t know is exactly how they do this,” he said.Sargis and colleagues will use the grant to examine how arsenic behaves in pancreatic beta cells – the cells that produce insulin. They will also look at how arsenic exposure affects mice that selectively lack selenoproteins in their beta cells. Using synchrotron X-ray fluorescence microscopy, they will map the locations of arsenic and selenium in beta cells.”By looking at the locations of these two players in beta cells at very high resolution, we should be able to learn more about how arsenic poisons beta cells and how selenoproteins protect or mitigate the damage caused by arsenic in these cells,” Sargis said.The researchers will also examine the function of a specific selenoprotein implicated in an increased risk for diabetes – glutathione peroxidase – to determine how it impacts arsenic-induced beta cell dysfunction.Finally, they will examine whether selenoprotein polymorphisms – differences in the DNA that code for these proteins – might alter the impact of arsenic on beta cells and overall metabolism in mice.”If our studies find that there is a specific selenoprotein polymorphism that causes an increased risk for diabetes, and if we later find that polymorphism in a specific population, we could develop interventions to lower exposure to arsenic in these populations or develop interventions to boost good selenoproteins,” Sargis explained.
