Vijay takes bronze, Gagan falters

first_imgArmyman Vijay Kumar shot 583 out of 600 to win bronze in the centre-fire pistol event as Indian shooters continued to flounder at the Aoti sports complex on Thursday.For Gagan Narang, who was hoping to win his second individual medal, it was a day of disappointment as he finished fourth in the men’s 50m rifle three position event. His aggregate score of 1261.8 was 0.5 less than bronze medal winner Qinan Zhu of China.As the rifle and pistol events came to an end, the talking point again was how the Indian shooters had come a cropper, unable to win a single gold medal. This was a sport from which the Indians were supposed to reap a rich harvest, but barring the efforts put in by Vijay Kumar and Gagan, the rest have failed to live up to expectations.India has a rich history in the Asian Games when a certain Jaspal Rana won medals with ease for the country from 1994 to 2006. Having won three gold medals and a silver in Doha, Jaspal was even in the running for the most valuable player award. But times have changed. As the National Rifle Association of India managed to ensure Jaspal gave up shooting totally, the next generation of pistol shooters has not been able to repeat his feats.On Thursday, Harpreet Singh shot a blank as a result of which India were unable to win a team medal. Vijay’s score of 583 was three points behind gold medal winner Byung Take Park of Korea. In contrast, during the Doha Asiad, Jaspal had shot a world record equalling 590 out of 600.advertisement”I am happy with my effort in Guangzhou as I won two medals. It has been a hard year for me and in the coming years, I can work harder and do better,” said Vijay. Back to Gagan, the rifleman was unlucky in what is virtually a season-ending event for him. Gagan shot 393 out of 400 in prone, 382 out of 400 in standing and a low 387 out of 400 in kneeling.At one point in the final, Gagan had moved to the third position but was done in by a score of 8.3 points in the eighth shot. And that virtually sealed his fate as the leaders pulled away from Gagan. Before that, Gagan had shot only 9.5 points in the third effort in the final.It has been a long year for Gagan. Having done well in the World Championship and the Commonwealth Games, expecting him to peak in Guangzhou was not easy. Yet, for sheer effort, he has done very well. “I am satisfied with my performance,” said Gagan later. “I tried my best today but what has to happen, happened.This has been a good year for me, even these Games were good.” At the distant shotgun ranges, Manavjit Sandhu ended the day eighth with a total of 70 out of 75 (23, 24, 23) in trap.Mansher Singh had a poor day and could only manage 67 out of 75 and was distant 18th. The third Indian – Zorawar Singh Sandhu – was 26th with 64 (19, 22, 23). The final will be held on Friday.last_img read more

No-Hit Tease, Yanks Beat Rangers

first_imgARLINGTON, Texas — Nathan Eovaldi was well aware that he was throwing a no-hitter. The New York Yankees right-hander from the same hometown as baseball’s no-hit and strikeout king will take the seven-plus scoreless innings.Eovaldi lost his no-hit bid when Rangers rookie Nomar Mazara led off the seventh with a single but pitched into the eighth without allowing a run for his first victory his four starts this season as the Yankees won 3-1 at Texas on the night of April 25.“In the fifth inning. I realized I had it going on. Once it’s over with, it’s over with,” Eovaldi said. “And I just want to try to go as deep in the game as I can. … When it was hit, I thought it was an out. But with the shift, the ball made it through.”The Rangers were without a hit until Mazara, a day before his 21st birthday, singled through the left side of the infield. After Mazara was wiped out by a double play, Prince Fielder swung at a high pitch for a double to right-center before Ian Desmond grounded out to end the inning.“He was amazing. His split … anything that started at your thigh went straight to the ground,” Fielder said. “Obviously if you can get a big-league team to go no hits through the seventh, you’re doing something good.”Jacoby Ellsbury and Starlin Castro had solo homers for the Yankees off Cesar Ramos (0-1), the lefty starting in place of Cole Hamels (sore groin).After Eovaldi (1-2) walked Mitch Moreland to start the eighth, Dellin Betances took over and promptly got Elvis Andrus to ground into a double play before Brett Nicholas hit his first career homer. Andrew Miller worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save in as many opportunities as the Rangers lost their fourth straight game.Eovaldi is only the second major league player from Alvin, Texas. The other is another big right-hander: Nolan Ryan, who threw a record seven no-hitters.“We saw tonight what we saw toward the end of last year, and we’d love for that to continue,” said Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who was then asked what he saw from the pitcher.“Uncomfortable swings. You can tell how good a guy is and how good his stuff is by the reaction of the hitters. They’re swinging at pitches in the dirt or they’re swinging at pitches over their heads because it’s just an uncomfortable at-bat.”Eovaldi threw 66 of his 98 pitches for strikes. He walked two and struck out six, ending his streak of seven consecutive starts with at least seven strikeouts that was tied with the longest in team history.“I feel like I’ve progressed in each outing,” he said. “It was good for everything to come together in this one.”(STEPHEN HAWKINS, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Afghans celebrate World Cup warm-up match win over Pakistan with gunfire in Kabul

first_imgAfghanistan’s victory over Pakistan in a warmup match for the Cricket World Cup on Friday was greeted with prolonged volleys of celebratory gunfire and prompted a rare show of unity in a country split by increasingly bitter political divisions.Lifted by a controlled 74 not out by Hashmatullah Shahidi and a quickfire 49 from Hazratullah Zazai, the Blue Tigers chased down Pakistan’s total of 262 to win by three wickets in a timely boost before the World Cup starts on Thursday.For Afghanistan, still searching for peace after decades of war, the victory was especially sweet because it came against Pakistan.Many Afghans accuse their neighbour of supporting the Taliban and fuelling instability in their country, a charge which Pakistan, for its part, denies.As the match concluded, automatic gunfire rang out across Kabul as fans rushed into the streets of the Afghan capital in now a familiar celebration of cricket success.Afghanistan’s fans know how to celebrate a victory!Some of them perform the ‘Champion Dance’ after their narrow win over Pakistan @DJBravo47, what do you think? pic.twitter.com/GPzf0Y3N5TCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) May 24, 2019The rise of Afghan cricket has been a remarkable by-product of the decades of turmoil that forced millions into refugee camps across the border in Pakistan, where young men uprooted from home and with little to occupy them learned the sport.On social media, politicians set aside brawls in parliament and bitter accusations of corruption, incompetence and nepotism to hail the team under Gulbadin Naib who hope to make the semi-finals.advertisement”We, the Afghans, defeated Pakistan in cricket,” tweeted Amrullah Saleh, a former intelligence chief now running on President Ashraf Ghani’s team for elections in September.”Yes it happened this evening and a massive mark was registered in history.”Similar messages came from a range of other officials and political figures.In a sporting concession, Gen. Asif Ghafoor, the powerful head of the Pakistani military communications wing, sent a tweet saying “Well played Afgan Cricket Team”.Amid the congratulations, there was also criticism of the gunfire which regularly greets sporting success.”Celebrating with gunfire is a shame, those who are interested in gunshots can join ANDSF, we need them on the battlefield,” said Abdul Moqim Abdulrahimzai, a senior official in the interior ministry, referring to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan players can stay with wives but only after India matchAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Expectations high for Virat Kohli’s Indialast_img read more

Will protect interest of industry in proposed RCEP Goyal

first_imgNew Delhi: India on Wednesday said it will protect the interest of industry and ensure huge opportunities for exporters while getting into the proposed mega free trade agreement RCEP. Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said that India has invited representations from all 15 countries of RCEP bloc on September 14 and 15 here to discuss ideas related to the pact. Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement is being negotiated between 16 countries including 10-nation grouping ASEAN and India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”As long as India’s domestic industry and our national interest is protected, the faster it (RCEP pact) is done the better it is for India because the agreement which we will finalise, if we agree to finalise and join, will necessarily rest on the pillar of national interest and it will necessarily give adequate protection to indian industry, will necessarily ensure that it does not allow indiscriminate imports to come in and will necessarily provide huge opportunity for Indian exports and job creation,” Goyal told reporters here. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostHe said that it is on these pillars, India is negotiating with the members of RCEP. The minister added that while negotiating such a pact, one has to be keep negotiating and get the best which is in the national interest. “…We are not like Ostrich that we will stand on one neck…you have to be nimble footed and keep negotiating,” he added. When asked about the concerns being raised by certain domestic industries on the presence of China in the RCEP group, Goyal said negotiations are going on and everybody has not opposed the pact. “We are literally vertically split. We have half the industry saying please bring RCEP, and we (the industry) can increase exports dramatically and there is a section of industry which feels that, we should not have RCEP,” he said. Citing example, he said pharma industry has stated that they see good opportunity in Chinese market as China’s pharma imports stood at about $25 billion and India’s exports are only about $200 million. However, he added that national interest cannot be hijacked by one or two sectors and it has to be seen in overall context. “We will certainly balance those industries if any which feel there could be an unfair advantage to Chinese companies. We will ensure that whatever agreement is made, it will be win-win for India. “… If I had to look up 100 per cent sectors, then no negotiations can ever be completed. So we will have to look at balance,” he said. India registered a trade deficit in 2018-19 with as many as 11 RCEP member countries – including China, South Korea and Australia – out of the grouping of 16 nations that are negotiating the mega trade pact since November 2012. The RCEP bloc comprises 10 ASEAN group members (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Laos and Vietnam) and their six FTA partners – India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. RCEP negotiations, which started in Cambodian capital Phnom Penh in November 2012, aims to cover goods, services, investments, economic and technical cooperation, competition and intellectual property rights.last_img read more

Liberals taking prudent amount of time with jet competition RCAF commander

first_imgOTTAWA – The head of the Royal Canadian Air Force has refuted suggestions, including from more than a dozen of his predecessors, that the Trudeau government is needlessly dragging its feet on new fighter jets.Lt.-Gen. Mike Hood instead said the Liberals are taking “a prudent amount of time,” as choosing Canada’s next fighter is a big decision — especially since it will likely be in use for decades.“Fighter operations, there is a lot to chew on,” Hood said in an interview with The Canadian Press.“The timelines the government and the minister have articulated will let them be absolutely sure that they’re making the right choice for a final fighter that will probably be flying when I’m going to the grave.”The Liberals’ new defence policy includes a promise to replace Canada’s 76 aging CF-18s with 88 new warplanes, which is an increase from the 65 previously promised by the Harper Conservatives.The policy estimates the new fighters will cost between $15 billion and $19 billion, up from the $9 billion previously budgeted by the Tories.The Liberals say the extra fighter jets are required to meet a new policy, adopted in September, that increased the number of warplanes that must always be ready for operations.But fighter-jet companies such as Lockheed Martin and Boeing, which make the F-35 and Super Hornet, respectively, won’t be asked to submit formal bids until next year at the earliest.That is despite many defence experts, including 13 retired Air Force commanders in February, saying a competition to replace the CF-18 fleet can and should be launched immediately.They say doing so would negate the need for 18 “interim” Super Hornets, which would save taxpayer dollars and keep from diverting personnel and resources away from other areas of the Air Force.But Hood played down those concerns, saying that he’ll have no trouble operating an interim fighter fleet if “I’m given the resources and the priority that I need.”That doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges in growing the size of Canada’s fighter fleet, he admitted, notably in terms of having enough pilots and technicians to fly and fix the new jets.The problem has been exacerbated by the fact that while airlines are currently on a hiring binge, Hood said, the Air Force can’t ramp up the number of pilots it puts through flight school each year.“We brought in a pilot-training system in the early 2000s that had a maximum capacity to deliver about 115 pilots a year. With attrition going up, I’d probably want to produce 140 this year, but I can’t.”However, Hood is hoping planned changes to the training regime and new initiatives such as recruiting potential technicians directly out of community college will help grow his ranks.At the same time, the military is looking at ways to improve working conditions across the board to keep experienced personnel in uniform and not lose them.The plan to grow the number of fighter jets is only one area in which the Air Force is slated to grow in the coming years, with new armed drones, search-and-rescue aircraft and other equipment having also been promised.Hood said that represents a significant and welcome turn of events after the service was dramatically weakened by years of cuts.“When General (Rick) Hillier talked about the ‘Decade of Darkness,’” Hood said, “the lion’s share of that was done on the back of the Air Force in the ’90s.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitter.last_img read more

Federalprovincial funding gives early childhood educators wage boosts

first_img“Early childhood educators are the heart of B.C.’s child care system, and their passion and dedication are key to setting B.C. kids on the path to future success,” said Katrine Conroy, B.C.’s Minister of Children and Family Development. “As we build new licensed child care spaces, we know that we also need to build the ECE workforce. Our government appreciates the important work early childhood educators do every day, and with this strategy, we aim to support ECEs throughout their career – because when we invest in child care, everyone benefits.”Through the new strategy, the B.C. government aims to encourage more people to become or stay on career paths as early childhood educators. By improving recruitment and retention, the government said that more B.C. families will have access to stable child care programs. Child care providers have cited lack of qualified early childhood educators as a key hiring challenge in recent years.Under the new strategy childcare workers at licensed facilities that have been approved for the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative will be getting a $1-per-hour raise early next year, with another $1-per-hour raise in April 2020.A $10-million investment to fund an expanded ECE Education Support Fund was also announced to provide increased ECE Student bursaries and a new payment schedule to reimburse students sooner.Under ChildCare BC, the government says it will be spending more than $1 billion on child care over the next three years. VANCOUVER, B.C. – The provincial government announced today that thousands of childcare workers across B.C. will be getting wage boosts and new supports through the Province’s ChildCare BC plan.The B.C. government said today that it will be spending $136 million to support the new Early Care and Learning Recruitment and Retention Strategy, which will help support early childhood educators by providing wage enhancements, on-the-job training opportunities and other measures.The federal government announced that it would be providing $16.3 million in funding for bursaries and professional development.last_img read more

Beyond Meat goes public as sales of plantbased meats rise

Beyond Meat is ready for more.The El Segundo, California-based maker of plant-based burgers and sausages will make its debut on the Nasdaq stock exchange Thursday. It’s the first pure-play maker of vegan “meat” to go public, according to Renaissance Capital, which researches and tracks IPOs.Beyond Meat raised about $240 million selling 9.6 million shares at $25 each. That values the company at about $1.5 billion.The 10-year-old company has attracted celebrity investors like Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and actor Leonardo DiCaprio and buzz for placing its products in burger joints like Carl’s Jr. It sells to 30,000 grocery stores, restaurants and schools in the U.S., Canada, Italy, the United Kingdom and Israel.Still, Beyond Meat has never made an annual profit. It’s also facing serious competition from other “new meat” companies like Impossible Foods and traditional players like Tyson Foods Inc. Tyson recently sold a stake in Beyond Meat because it plans to develop its own alternative meat.The IPO comes amid growing consumer interest in plant-based foods for their presumed health and environmental benefits. U.S. sales of plant-based meats jumped 42% between March 2016 and March 2019 to a total of $888 million, according to Nielsen. Traditional meat sales rose 1% to $85 billion in that same time frame.The trend is a global one. U.K. sales of meat alternatives jumped 18% over the last year, while sales of traditional meat and poultry slid 2%.Even Burger King has recognized the appeal. Earlier this week, the fast food chain announced that it would start testing the Impossible Whopper, made with a plant-based burger from Impossible Foods, in additional markets after its monthlong test in St. Louis proved successful.Beyond Meat products, made from pea protein, canola oil, potato starch and other plant-based ingredients, have been sold in the meat section of groceries since 2016. Its burgers “bleed” with beet juice; its sausages are colored with fruit juice.That has broadened their appeal beyond vegetarians. Beyond Meat says a 26-week study last spring showed that 93% of Kroger customers who bought its burgers also bought animal meat during the same period.Health comparisons are mixed. A four-ounce 92% lean burger from Laura’s Lean Beef has higher fat and cholesterol than a Beyond Meat burger, but Beyond Meat’s burger has higher sodium and carbohydrates and slightly less protein. The lean beef burger is 160 calories; a Beyond Meat burger is 270 calories.Beyond Meat also costs more. For $5.99, consumers can get two 4-ounce patties of Beyond Burger or four 4-ounce patties of Laura’s Lean Beef.But Beyond Meat touts environmental benefits as well. The company says a plant-based burger takes 99% less water and 93% less land to produce than a beef burger, and generates 90% fewer greenhouse gas emissions.Beyond Meat was founded in 2009 by Ethan Brown, a former clean energy executive. Brown’s family part-owned a Maryland dairy farm, so as a child, Brown spent weekends and summers on the farm. As he grew older, he began to question whether people really needed animals to produce meat.Brown teamed up with two professors from the University of Missouri, Fu-hung Hsieh and Harold Huff, who had been developing soy-based chicken since the 1980s. By 2013, Beyond Meat was selling plant-based chicken strips nationwide at Whole Foods. (The company discontinued chicken earlier this year but says it’s working on a better recipe.)For investors, the stock is not without risk. Beyond Meat lost $30 million last year, and it must continue to spend heavily on research and development. The company employs 63 scientists, engineers, researchers, technicians and chefs at its 30,000-square-foot California lab. It also has manufacturing facilities in Columbia, Missouri.Renaissance Capital, which has researched the company, says investors will likely tolerate those losses because the company is growing so quickly. Beyond Meat’s net revenue was $87.9 million last year, 170% higher than 2017.In documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Beyond Meat says it will invest $40 million to $50 million in current and new manufacturing facilities and spend $50 million to $60 million on product development and sales. The rest will be used to pay down debt and fund operations.Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press read more

Rogers takeover of Score Media may boost younger techsavvy viewership

Rogers’ deal to buy Score Media Inc. will bring younger viewers with its headline sports news and information and access to digital technology for mobile devices, the head of Rogers Media said Monday.Score Media’s niche programming will complement mainstream sports coverage by Rogers’ Sportsnet and Sportsnet 1, said Keith Pelley, president of the media division.“Really, what they have done is gone after a younger demographic than we have,” Pelley said from Toronto.Pelley said about 70% of Score Media’s audience is under 50. [np-related /]“So when you talk about the actual event programing, it’s a younger demographic,” he said, noting Score Media covers World Wrestling Entertainment events, some martial arts and some Canadian and U.S. college sports.Rogers is competing with heavyweight rival TSN, owned by Bell, for sports fans.Shares in Score Media Inc. closed another 12% higher Monday on the Toronto Stock Exchange after the $167-million, or $1.62 per share offer by Rogers Communications Inc.Shares in Score Media closed at $1.72, up 18 cents — higher than what Rogers has offered. Its stock jumped nearly 47% on Friday on reports that Rogers would buy Score Media and Rogers announced the deal early Saturday.Pelley said Score Media is different from other sports broadcasters because it offers constant sports results and information.“It can only broadcast 15% of its day with live event coverage.”The Score also is well-known among sports fans for its mobile apps, which offer real-time scores and statistics. The company has credited its fast-growing mobile platform for much of the revenue growth it has seen in the past year.Score Media’s digital assets will be spun out to its existing shareholders, with Rogers Media retaining a 10% equity interest in the digital media business. Rogers Media will also have access to Score Media’s digital technology for its own mobile offerings.“The biggest advantage that this will bring is that fact that we get access to the technology for the mobile offerings and that will be critical for us, taking it across four screens,” Pelley said, referring to computers, TVs, smartphones and tablet computers.Bruno Delorme, who teaches sports marketing at McGill University, said business, television and sports are all appealing to “niche” audiences.“We live in a zapping society where you have over 100 channels on your basic cable package,” he said.“So people are zipping and zapping. There’s a market for niche, that’s why we have the Golf Channel. There’s channels for extreme sports and the Score is a niche obviously.”These are loyal audiences to offer to advertisers, Delorme added.The mobile apps that Rogers will acquire a stake in from Score Media will likely appeal to younger consumers, too, he said.“The sports marketers’ dream is that 18 to 35 year-old demographic,” he said.But the acquisition could also attract an even younger crowd who are “the consumers of the future,” Delorme said.Rogers expects the deal to close in early 2013.The Canadian Press read more

Trump financial disclosures show MaraLago business boom

by Julie Bykowicz And Stephen Braun, The Associated Press Posted Jun 16, 2017 7:59 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 17, 2017 at 9:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Trump financial disclosures show Mar-a-Lago business boom President Donald Trump arrives at the White House in Washington, Friday, June 16, 2017, after speaking about Cuba policy in Miami. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik) WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s Washington hotel saw almost $20 million in revenue during its first few months of operation — a period that coincided with his election and inauguration as the 45th president. His Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, which he’s visited seven times as president, pulled in millions of dollars more than it had previously.The new details were included in a financial disclosure that Trump voluntarily submitted Friday to the Office of Government Ethics, the first snapshot of the Trump Organization’s finances since its longtime leader became president.When he took office in January, Trump turned over the reins of his global real estate, property management and marketing empire to his two adult sons and a senior executive. But Trump did not divest, instead placing his enormous portfolio of financial assets in a trust controlled by the executive and Donald Trump Jr. He can take back control of the trust at any time, and he’s free to withdraw cash from it as he pleases.On paper, at least, the billionaire president’s finances don’t appear to have been upended by the time-consuming campaign and transition to power.He has at least $1.4 billion in assets and reported at least $594 million in income from January 2016 through this spring. Those top-line numbers were largely the same as he had reported in his previous filing, which included all of 2015 and part of 2016.Trump’s financial disclosures have added importance because he isn’t following the long tradition of presidential candidates and office-holders making public their tax returns. Those returns provide more precise financial information than the disclosure forms that have broad ranges for income, assets and debts.The latest report shows Trump resigned from more than 500 positions, stepping down from many on the day before his inauguration. He listed at least $315 million in liabilities, about the same as in the previous report.The president still owes more than $100 million to Deutsche Bank and a similar amount to Ladder Capital Finance, a New York-based real estate investment trust.What is unclear from the disclosure is whether Trump added to his debt in any significant way to help pay for his presidential campaign. Because the ranges required for disclosure under federal ethics laws are so wide — Trump’s documents list five separate liabilities each at “over $50,000,000” — it is impossible to tell whether his debt load has changed appreciably.Some of Trump’s ventures appear to be making more money than they had a year earlier.His book “The Art of the Deal” is having a comeback of its own. Royalties from the 1987 autobiography ranged between $100,000 and $1 million, according to the new report. The 2016 report listed royalties as being between $50,000 and $100,000, and the 2015 report put them at $15,000 to $50,000.Trump’s management fees from Indonesian companies tied to two planned resorts there more than doubled. The latest disclosure puts the fees $380,000, up from $167,000 he reported in 2016. Trump is partnering with a billionaire Indonesian, Hary Tanoesoedibjo, on the two ventures. One is planned for the tourist island of Bali, the other near Jakarta.Mar-a-Lago, where Trump played host to several foreign dignitaries during his seven weekends there this winter, has improved its finances. Trump listed the resort’s income as about $37 million, up from about $30 million it had taken in prior to his 2016 financial report.His golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on the other hand, produced almost $20 million in revenue, about what it had during the previous reporting period. Trump recently began decamping to that property some weekends.The documentation of revenue from each of those properties doesn’t account for expenses, meaning those figures are not pure profit.The Trump International Hotel, housed in the Old Post Office building down the street from the White House, has seen a burst of activity since opening its doors last fall. In addition to serving as a hub during inauguration festivities, it has hosted numerous events for foreign diplomatic and business interests.The hotel is cited in three separate lawsuits arguing that Trump is violating the Constitution’s “emoluments” clause, a ban on foreign gifts and payments. Trump and the Justice Department have called those claims baseless.___Associated Press writers Chad Day, Bernard Condon, Josh Boak and Marcy Gordon contributed to this report. read more

Price City Selects Brandon Sicilia as New Chief of Police

Price City Press ReleaseFor the last few weeks, Price City officials and the community have been engaged in a search process to fill the role of Price City Chief of Police. Current chief, Kevin Drolc, has been serving for 32 years and will retire this September.“We appreciate Chief Drolc’s many years of dedicated service to the community,” said Price City Mayor Michael Kourianos.The search for a new chief attracted a solid field of ten candidates from several western states, four from the local area and three from Price City Police Department.“We were very pleased with the response and interest we had,” noted Kourianos. “A real indication of the interest people have in our area and in serving our community.”City officials organized a panel consisting of a wide variety of community stakeholders, including city council members, Price City management, Price City Police Department, Price City employee and community members, who had input on the process, reviewed applications and presented the mayor with their top two recommendations.After further review and interviews, the mayor selected Brandon Sicilia as the new chief.Sicilia, brings 23 years of law enforcement and first responder experience, 22 of which are with the Price City Police Department. He also has logged over 3,000 hours ofcontinuing education experience in law enforcement management and training, which makes him uniquely qualified for the position of chief.“I am confident that we, as a community, have made a great choice, and I wish to thank all those who were involved as a candidate or as a reviewer. This is a very important position in our community and everyone involved took their responsibilities seriously and with the intent of finding the right person for the position and for our community,” stated Kourianos.Sicilia will begin his new position in September of this year. read more

Ohio state mens golf tries to rebound from disappointing Big Ten tournament

When it comes to the Ohio State men’s golf team readying themselves for post-season play, previous experience has proven that preparation isn’t everything. The NCAA selection committee announced May 7 that the team has earned a spot in this year’s NCAA Men’s Golf Regional held in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Buckeyes are coming off a disappointing ninth-place finish at the Big Ten Championship in Indiana, but coach Donnie Darr said the scores posted were no indication of how his team played. “We really weren’t that far off from playing well,” Darr said. “You can’t just walk away and say we played terrible because we actually played really well, we just didn’t finish our rounds off.” Darr said it is important to maintain similar preparation, but the team must limit their mistakes. “I think we prepare the right way every week,” Darr said. “Our guys work hard and play hard, but we just have to stay away from a big number.” And although this year’s selection to the regional tournament marks the second straight under Darr, none of his players have ever played on the University of Michigan Golf Course. “It’s the same design as our course,” Darr said. “But there are significant differences.” Players said they are expecting shorter yardages into the green, thicker rough and narrow openings throughout the course. And Big Ten Freshman of the Year Grant Weaver said he welcomes the challenge. “It’s just about learning from your mistakes,” he said. “You have to pick out what you did good and what you did bad and improve. We’re just trying to put everything together.” Weaver said the team has tackled those mistakes by playing at various local golf courses that will resemble the course in Michigan. And the Buckeyes hope to follow the lead of seniors Alex Redfield and Dan Charen, who could be hitting the links for the last time as collegiate players. But Redfield said he isn’t worried about that. “All I’m worried about is our team finishing in the top five,” he said. “That’s my only concern.” The team will need a top-five finish to advance to the next round of competition. Redfield said he is confident the team has the skills to advance to the national competition and he is excited to make one more run as a collegiate player. “I think we’re going to play well and advance,” he said. “And even if it is my last tournament, I’ve had a great career and I get to go out there and compete with my team and my friends, and I couldn’t ask for anything better.” The Buckeyes advanced out of the regional tournament in San Diego last year, reaching the match play round before falling to top-ranked and host Oklahoma State. OSU is set to compete against 12 other teams in the tournament May 17-19. Purdue is the only other Big Ten school competing in the Buckeyes’ region. read more

It is now on sale for $450 (£330).“It’s an overwhelming honour to be part of history and for my pieces to be given as a keepsake for this momentous occasion,” said Ms Polny, in a statement to People magazine. The bespoke design in yellow gold was made specifically for the royal wedding and approved by Ms Markle herself, she said. The special piece is now available to buy for $450.“It’s a really simple, elegant piece that’s just very true to her personal style,” she added.Aside from the duchess, recipients included Ms Markle’s friend Benita Litt, who was seated next to Ms Markle’s mother Doria Ragland at the wedding, and Jessica Mulroney, her stylist friend that she has been leaning on in the run up to the wedding.Ms Polny also created two necklaces for Ms Litt’s daughters, Rylan and Remi.“I have always wanted to create a petite line, and my daughter loves to wear my designs.“So I decided to make Benita’s girls some special pieces for their special day.”Ms Markle has long been a fan of the California-based brand, wearing their earrings and rings in magazine shoots.

It’s a real honour.” Most of the ceremony will see the Prince and Ms Markle referred to simply as “Harry and Meghan”, eschewing the full repetition of their names: Prince Henry Charles Albert David and Rachel Meghan Markle.The decision will ensure neither endures the test faced by the Prince’s parents, where the then Lady Diana Spencer muddled her words to get Prince Charles’ middle names the wrong way around.Hymns will also honour the Prince’s mother, with Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer, otherwise known as Bread of Heaven, remembered both for being played at her funeral and as a Welsh rugby anthem sung regularly by Prince Harry.As the service continues, A gospel choir will perform Ben E King’s Stand By Me, later followed by Etta James’ uplifting version of Amen/This Little Light of Mine – a joyous childhood favourite. Click here to read the full story.

I understand that Prince Charles really likes gospel music.”The couple were very intentional about what they wanted sung and how they wanted it sung, but the actual idea came from Prince Charles – although they were very happy to have gospel music.”She said about the arrangement of Stand By Me, which was played after the rousing address by US bishop Michael Curry: “It was more reflective, more personal – and even though its a secular song, it’s inspired by a spiritual.” Meghan travelled in a Rolls Royce with her mother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave St George's Chapel Crowds applaud the couple’s first kissCredit:Danny Lawson /PA 5:17PMWedding revellers face two-hour waits to board train The Duke of Cambridge, in his role as best man, stepped forward to hand over the rings.Prince Harry now places the wedding ring on the fourth finger of Ms Markle’s left hand and, holding it there, says: “I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage.

But it’s very evident and that’s wonderful.”As the Order of Service was published on the morning of the wedding, it revealed Prince Harry will wear a ring – not a given for royal men – and Ms Markle will not promise to obey her husband in the vows.

Walking up the aisle by herself, I looked for every smallest sign of suppressed anxiety and nervousness – there was absolutely nothing.”I think she probably saw it as her role to help Harry through it rather than the other way round. She sat with her hand over his for quite a bit of the service as though she was reassuring him.”To me, she was the strength when it came to the day and the actual performance.” MIke and Zara TindallCredit:Gareth Fuller /PA Fans arrive along The Long Walk to watch the carriage procession after the weddingCredit:AP Prince Harry and Meghan Markle before they say their vows Patrick J.

She said she was embarrassed by her mother’s behaviour, and that of her uncle Thomas, Ms Markle’s half-brother.  “We’re just regular people – then all of a sudden Meghan began dating Prince Harry and it has been crazy ever since,” she told The Mirror.“They’re just really feeling hurt and they don’t know how to deal with it. I’m OK with not having been invited, I just want her to be happy. “She’ll be a great wife and a great ambassador for America.” Rick Hoffman has responded to pictures of him looking seemingly disinterested at the wedding service of his former Suits co-star. The actor, who plays Louis Litt in the series, was mocked online for pulling a face inside St George’s Chapel.  Harry appears to have given his bride a poignant wedding day gift – an impressive, emerald cut aquamarine ring which belonged to his late, beloved mother.Meghan wore the large gem on her right hand as the couple made their way to their evening reception. 10:05AMWedding rings will be made of platinum and Welsh gold The Archbishop then asks Ms Markle the same, and she responds: “I will.” 1:43PMRoyal couple join their guests for lunchtime reception Prince Harry’s wedding ring will be a platinum band with a textured finish and Meghan Markle’s ring has been fashioned from a piece of Welsh gold, Kensington Palace announced. The rings will be made by Cleave and Company.  Princess Diana wearing the ring in Sydney, Australia in 1996 Scout leader Tom Moss (left) and mother Vickie (right) pose as they arrive for the weddingCredit:CHRIS RADBURN /AFP The official 10 Downing Street Twitter account posted a message to the couple from Theresa May, saying: The bride’s evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe.Ms Markle wore shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue.

Mozart probably wrote his Piano Concerto no 18 for her. She became blind at an early age but that didn’t stop her musical career. This piece probably isn’t by her – it was probably by the 20 th century violinist Samuel Dushkin. GABRIEL FAURÉ: APRÈS UN RÊVEThis song has been endlessly re-arranged. It’s the single most popular song by this late 19th – early 20th century composer.

A folky/antique theme dominates in this sequence of pieces.EDWARD ELGAR SALUT D’AMOURElgar’s first published piece. Originally written in 1888 as a gift for his future wife Carice. He sold the rights to the publisher for two guineas, which was a really bad move. It became massively popular and could have earned him a fortune.GUSTAV HOLST: ST PAUL’S SUITE, 4 TH MOVTHolst taught at St Paul’s School for Girls and composed this in 1912 for the school orchestra. This movement based on 16 th century English balladSIR CHARLES HUBERT HASTINGS PARRY movts 2,3,5 Parry, a leading light of the so-called ‘English Renaissance’ who was the first director of the Royal College of Music in 1883. He wrote his Lady Radnor’s suite in 1894 for the all-women orchestra conducted by Helen, Countess of Radnor. It’s a kind of Baroque Suite in Victorian dress.PETER WARLOCK: CAPRIOL SUITE Set of dances based on a book of Renaissance dances composed by Peter Warlock (gifted composer who died in 1930 aged 36).RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: FANTASIA ON GREENSLEEVESVaughan Williams was a collector of folk-song, and wrote many pieces based on the songs he found. This one is especially beloved, it’s always in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. More famous and well-known than the tune it’s based on.ELGAR SERENADE FOR STRINGSElgar’s first really successful work, completed in 1893. It remained one of his favourite works right to the end of his life. He liked it because it was ‘really stringy’ – weird phrase but a musician knows What he means – it completely suits a string orchestra, you couldn’t arrange it for something else.ELGAR CHANSON DE MATIN In his early days, Elgar was always complaining about having no money, and wrote this delicious piece in 1899 as a deliberate money-spinner for his publisher Novello. It worked. Revellers have begun the weary slog back home with current waits of around two hours to board a train back to London from Windsor, reports Joe Shute.Despite the long queues, the festive atmosphere endures. Leila Souza, 61, and Adela Welch, 63, of Tampa Bay, Florida, are waiting in line still waving their custom-made placard celebrating “our American Princess”.”We don’t mind waiting,” says Souza who is wearing a pair of sunglasses shaped like champagne flutes. “It has been a wonderful day and we would do it all over again.”Rail staff are handing out free bottles of water to passengers waiting in the heat.

While the general mood, when discussing O’Neill, of Johnny Giles, Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady was positive, doubts were expressed over Keane and his role with the team.Giles praised O’Neill as an intelligent football man and Brady expressed his delight that the Derry native has decided to succeed Giovanni Trapattoni. Dunphy added his voice to the cheerful din before adding that the big question was ‘why did [O’Neill] choose Keane’. Dunphy declared, “The fact that O’Neill wants him is good enough for me.”Brady then held sway as he cast doubt on Keane’s temperament and questioned his fellow pundits for praising the judgement and leadership of the former Sunderland and Ipswich boss. Brady said:I don’t understand why he brought him back… [Keane’s] relationships with players was disastrous at times… If he had great thoroughness and leadership, why didn’t he make it in the managerial sphere?”last_img read more
