‘PARTY HEADQUARTERS FOR THE NTL’

first_imgFlying outside the Greenhouse Tavern is a giant sign; `Australian Touch, Party Headquarters’, is what it reads. The Greenhouse Tavern is one of Coffs Harbour’s major sponsors for the NTL’s, being held in Coffs Harbour until Sunday the 21st. The Greenhouse has been supporting the NTL tournament since it first began at Coffs Harbour in 1997. For owner Tony Haslam and his staff, the support is not just financial but the provision of a well-run, safe, convenient and quality venue for the tournament. This includes the parties, functions, dinners for referees and officials and general facilities for the participants to use. “The very first function we held for touch was pretty disappointing, only about 30 or 40 people showed up”, he says. “But at the second function that year, we were absolutely inundated with about 500 people, since then it’s been great every year.” With recent exploits of sporting teams well publicised in our local and national media, Tony is quick to praise the behaviour of the touch players visiting Coffs Harbour. “The touch people have always been great, they’ve never given us any problems”, he says. “If they had brought us grief in any way, we would not have continued our support of them.” The site for the next three NTL’s is currently being considered, with Coffs Harbour one of five applicants to host the tournament. Tony admits that losing the NTL tournament would be very disappointing for the Coffs Community. “Not only would we be losing a great sporting event, but we would also lose a big two weeks of business”, he says. “It’s not just us, but also our suppliers and companies that provide us with stock, as well as the resorts, motels, local shops and restaurants.” Tony believes it is important for local businesses to support sporting events that visit Coffs Harbour, so when other events consider Coffs as a venue, they know they will be well received and local business will continue to grow. “We want to be seen as pro-active in looking after sporting events, so when new ones come we will be approached to also support them”, he says. The NTL tournament is in its second phase, with the Open and 20 years divisions already completed. The Senior divisions are well underway and will conclude with the play-offs and grand finals on Sunday 21st at Coffs Harbour International Sports Stadium. With grand finals to be contested in eight divisions, they begin at 11:00am and conclude at 6:00pm on Sunday. Rachel Moylelast_img

New trial for man who killed roommate over alleged relationship with teen

first_imgTORONTO — A new trial has been ordered for an Ontario man who beat his roommate to death with a hammer in a drunken confrontation over the other man’s alleged sexual relationship with a teenage girl.Toby Land appealed his second-degree murder conviction in the May 2009 killing of Dominic Doyon, arguing the judge was wrong to rule out the defence of provocation.Had the defence been presented to the jury, Land argued he could have been convicted of manslaughter instead, which would allow for a lower sentence. Second-degree murder carries an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for at least 10 years.In a ruling released last week, Ontario’s highest court found the trial judge erred in determining that Land could not claim provocation because he had initiated the confrontation while armed.The three-member appeal panel said the trial judge failed to consider whether Land, who anticipated that Doyon may become violent, could have realistically predicted that his roommate would reach for a samurai sword.The appeal court added that Doyon’s comments about his relationship with the teen during the dispute could also count as provocation, particularly for Land, who “was raised in a sexually abusive home.”“This confrontation arose out of Mr. Doyon’s alleged sexually abusive conduct. Mr. Land’s personal reaction to that conduct would obviously be affected by his experiences,” the court wrote.“Mr. Land, an Indigenous man, then 24 years old, had a horrendous past. It scarred him deeply,” it said. “He left his home with substance abuse issues and with a violent aversion to sexual abusers. On numerous occasions prior to May 4, 2009, Mr. Land attacked men he knew to be sexual abusers.”The decision said Land was angered by his 33-year-old roommate’s relationship with the teen, and the pair had clashed over the issue in the past. On two occasions, the dispute turned physical, with Doyon gaining the upper hand, it said.One day, Land said he came home to find Doyon and the teen shirtless on the couch, the document said, and he remained “deeply troubled” hours later.After drinking about eight beers, Land decided to confront Doyon but feared for his safety, so he armed himself with a hammer and held it at his side as he addressed his roommate, it said.He then noticed Doyon had a samurai sword — which had previously hung on the wall or been kept beside the couch or window — with him on the couch, the decision said.Doyon grabbed the sword’s handle as he got up and said something about how he could do whatever he wanted with his life, it said.Land told the court he felt like he snapped and “just reacted,” the document said. He vaguely remembered hitting Doyon in the arms with the hammer and said his next memory was of his other roommate pulling him back and, he believed, pulling the sword from his hands, it said.“Mr. Land said he could not control his thoughts and his actions,” the appeal court said.In fact, Land had “engaged in a frenzied attack upon Mr. Doyon, hitting him dozens of times with the hammer, including about the head,” it said.Doyon was also stabbed repeatedly with the sword and beaten with a pair of crutches, it said.The appeal court said the defence of provocation “had an air of reality and should have been left with the jury.”Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Survey Americans dont understand impact of excess weight on heart and overall

first_imgAccording to the CDC, nearly 40 percent of Americans, 93 million people, are obese, and even more are overweight.For more information and complete survey results, go to: clevelandclinic.org/loveyourheartMethodologyCleveland Clinic’s survey of the general population gathered insights into Americans’ perceptions of heart health and weight. This was an online survey conducted among a national probability sample consisting of 1,002 adults 18 years of age and older, living in the continental United States. The total sample data is nationally representative based on age, gender, ethnicity and educational attainment census data. The online survey was conducted by Research Now and completed between September 20 and September 28, 2018. The margin of error for the total sample at the 95% confidence level is +/- 3.1 percentage points. Source:https://my.clevelandclinic.org/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jan 31 2019A Cleveland Clinic survey finds that while most Americans (88 percent) understand that there is a connection between a healthy heart and a healthy weight, most aren’t doing enough – or anything – to combat their own weight issues. The survey found 74 percent are concerned about their weight and 65 percent are worried about getting heart disease due to extra pounds, yet less than half (43 percent) of Americans have tried to make dietary changes to lose weight and 40 percent of those who describe themselves as overweight or obese say they aren’t careful about which foods they eat.Part of the problem may be that Americans aren’t sure what to eat for heart health. Nearly one-in-five (18 percent) believe their diet has nothing to do with their heart health, and a mere 14 percent knew that a Mediterranean diet is healthiest for heart health. What’s more, nearly half of Americans (46 percent) believe using artificial sweeteners is a healthy way to lose weight despite studies showing they don’t promote weight loss.The survey also revealed Americans don’t fully understand the impact excess weight has on their heart and overall health. The overwhelming majority of Americans (87 percent) fail to link obesity to cancer or atrial fibrillation (80 percent). More than half of Americans also don’t know that obesity is linked to high “bad” cholesterol levels (54 percent) or coronary artery disease (57 percent) and two-thirds (64 percent) don’t know it can lead to a stroke.”Most Americans understand abstractly that being overweight or obese is not good for your health, but it seems we are not grasping that the leading causes of death and disability – stroke, cancer, coronary artery disease – are all adversely affected by increased weight,” said Steven Nissen, M.D., chairman of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic. “We need to do a better job of educating patients and the public about the major consequences of carrying excess weight and the benefits of losing weight. A patient only needs to lose five percent of their body weight to start seeing important health benefits.”Eighty-four percent of Americans say they have tried at least one weight-loss method in the past. About one-third (30 percent) say they typically stick with it between one week and one month. Americans cite dislike of exercise (24 percent) and lack of time (22 percent) as their main barriers to maintaining a healthy weight. Most Americans also believe their metabolism is detrimental to weight loss – 60 percent of women and 46 percent of men say their metabolism is working against them.”Americans may be correct that their metabolism is thwarting their weight loss efforts,” said Dr. Nissen. “Once you’ve been overweight, your body tries to hold on to that excess fat, making it more difficult to lose weight. It’s best to work with your physician to develop a steady long term weight loss plan that will help you keep off the pounds. Quick weight loss programs are not effective.”Related StoriesSmoking triples the risk of death from cardiovascular diseaseImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsWeightlifting is better for the heart than cardioHeart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States and around the world. The survey was conducted as part of Cleveland Clinic’s “Love your Heart” consumer education campaign in celebration of American Heart Month. Cleveland Clinic has been ranked the No. 1 hospital in the country for cardiology and cardiac surgery for 24 years in a row by US News & World Report.Additional survey findings include:center_img All fat is not created equal: When it comes to body shapes, almost half (45%) falsely believe that all types of fat put you at equal risk for heart disease; however, numerous studies have shown that fat stored in the abdomen is the most dangerous. Not feeling the pressure: Most Americans say they are concerned about a family member’s weight (62 percent), or them getting heart disease due to their weight (64%). However, for many, outside pressure to lose the weight doesn’t help. Fifty-seven percent say they don’t need others to tell them to lose weight because they already know they should. Baby Boomers (65 percent) are particularly resistant to others weighing in on their weight. Seeking medical advice: While 44 percent of Americans say they are most likely to turn to their physician for nutrition advice, only a quarter (28 percent) have told their doctor they’d like to lose weight. Even less (22 percent) say they’ve discussed heart health in relation to their weight with their doctor.last_img read more

H1B use skyrocketed among Bay Area tech giants

first_img Explore further The data show the importance of H-1B workers to the tech industry, which has long lobbied to increase the number of highly skilled foreign workers. Menlo Park-based Facebook in 2017 received 720 H-1B approvals, a 53 percent increase over 2016, according to the National Foundation for American Policy, which obtained federal government data. Mountain View’s Google received 1,213 H-1B approvals, a 31 percent increase. The number of H-1B approvals at Intel in Santa Clara rose 19 percent and Cupertino-based Apple received 673, a 7 percent increase.But the data lacks details that might clarify how the industry uses those workers: It does not indicate what kind of jobs the visa holders had, or in which offices they worked. And experts say the data also doesn’t show how many additional H-1B contractors tech companies may get from staffing agencies or outsourcing companies.In response to this news organization’s inquiries, Facebook said it does not publicly discuss its use of H-1B workers or contractors. Google, Apple and Intel did not respond to requests for information about their use of H-1B workers or contractors.The lottery-based H-1B, obtained by employers seeking foreign talent, is intended for highly skilled workers, and has become a flashpoint in the U.S. immigration debate. Tech firms have lobbied hard to increase the number of new visas beyond the 85,000 annual cap, while opponents point to reported abuses and claim H-1B workers take jobs from Americans.Outsourcing firms, such as Infosys and Tata, have become particular targets of the administration of President Donald Trump. In a February policy memo, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration noted legitimate uses of the visa by third-party agencies, but said such arrangements can increase the likelihood of abuses such as paying improperly low wages or using contractors for non-specialized work. The memo imposed new requirements on H-1B employers to prove that visa holders will be doing specialty work.Vivek Wadhwa, a distinguished fellow at Harvard Law School and Carnegie Mellon’s School of Engineering at Silicon Valley, believes the solution is to give H-1B preference to start-ups and tech companies—not third-party agencies. Citation: H-1B use skyrocketed among Bay Area tech giants (2018, August 17) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-08-h-1b-skyrocketed-bay-area-tech.html ©2018 The Mercury News (San Jose, Calif.) Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. “I’m a strong proponent of skilled immigration,” said Wadhwa, who studies the positive contributions of immigrants. “The only H-1Bs should be direct employees of these companies.”The increase in H-1Bs approved for tech companies in 2017 came as the White House began a series of sweeping actions to limit immigration. That may have prompted companies to secure as many visas as possible while they could, Wadhwa said.”It may be that they were stocking up because things turned dark,” he said.Amazon chalked up the largest increase in H-1B approvals, with 2,515 in 2017, a 78 percent leap. Microsoft received 1,479 approvals, an increase of 29 percent. Neither company responded to a request for comment. The data does not show what companies, if any, got fewer H-1B approvals.The Consumer Technology Association, an industry group representing companies including Google and Facebook, says tech firms are facing a “massive skills gap” in which jobs go unfilled for lack of qualified American workers. And Peter Leroe-Munoz, vice-president of technology and innovation policy at the Silicon Valley Leadership Group—whose membership includes all the major valley tech giants—said foreign workers remain “tremendously important” to the region’s tech industry because of a shortage of skilled technologists.But Chris Benner, a professor at UC Santa Cruz who has studied the use of contract employees in tech, doesn’t buy it. “I think the argument that people with those types of skills are not available in the U.S. is pretty specious,” Benner said. “I have not seen any significant evidence of labor shortage in a lot of skilled positions.”The Federation for American Immigration Reform says the government has refused to provide detailed information about where third-party providers send H-1B contractors, and the group’s partner organization, The Immigration Reform Law Institute, has sued for access to that data.Absent reliable numbers, it’s impossible to know the extent to which tech firms may be using H-1B workers supplied by third parties. But Immigration Reform Law Institute lawyer John Miano believes that if the companies weren’t taking on large numbers of H-1B workers from staffing firms and outsourcers, they would be kicking up a fuss over the huge numbers of H-1B visas snapped up by those third parties.”They want to keep this business rolling for their own purposes,” Miano said.center_img Who gains most from high-skilled foreign workers? Even as the White House began cracking down on U.S. work visas, major Silicon Valley technology firms last year dramatically ramped up hiring of workers under the controversial H-1B visa program, according to newly released data.

All primates alive today, including mountain gorillas in Uganda, howler monkeys in the Americas, and lemurs in Madagascar, have proven that they can thrive in their natural habitats. “Evolution isn’t a progression,” said Lynne Isbell, a professor of anthropology at the University of California, Davis. “It’s about how well organisms fit into their current environments.” In the eyes of scientists who study evolution, humans aren’t “more evolved” than other primates, and we certainly haven’t won the so-called evolutionary game. While extreme adaptability lets humans manipulate very different environments to meet our needs, that ability isn’t enough to put humans at the top of the evolutionary ladder. Take, for instance, ants. “Ants are as or more successful than we are,” Isbell told Live Science. “There are so many more ants in the world than humans, and they’re well-adapted to where they’re living.” While ants haven’t developed writing (though they did invent agriculture long before we existed), they’re enormously successful insects. They just aren’t obviously excellent at all of the things humans tend to care about, which happens to be the things humans excel at. “We have this idea of the fittest being the strongest or the fastest, but all you really have to do to win the evolutionary game is survive and reproduce,” Pobiner said. Our ancestors’ divergence from ancestral chimps is a good example. While we don’t have a complete fossil record for humans or chimps, scientists have combined fossil evidence with genetic and behavioral clues gleaned from living primates to learn about the now-extinct species whose descendants would become humans and chimps. “We don’t have its remains, and I’m not sure if we’d be able to place it with certainty in the human lineage it if we did,” Isbell said. Scientists think this creature looked more like a chimpanzee than a human, and it probably spent most of its time in the canopy of forests dense enough that it could travel from tree to tree without touching the ground, Isbell said. Scientists think ancestral humans began distinguishing themselves from ancestral chimps when they started spending more time on the ground. Perhaps our ancestors were looking for food as they explored new habitats, Isbell said. “Our earliest ancestors that diverged from our common ancestor with chimpanzees would have been adept at both climbing in trees and walking on the ground,” Isbell said. It was more recently — maybe 3 million years ago — that these ancestors’ legs began to grow longer and their big toes turned forward, allowing them to become mostly full-time walkers. Lucy belongs to one of the best known early human species, Australopithecus afarensis, which lived about 3.85 million to 2.95 million years ago. Credit: Copyright Field Museum; photographer John Weinstein “Some difference in habitat selection probably would’ve been the the first notable behavioral change,” Isbell said. “To get bipedalism going, our ancestors would have gone into habitats that didn’t have closed canopies. They would have had to travel more on the ground in places where trees were more spread out.” The rest is human evolutionary history. As for the chimps, just because they stayed in the trees doesn’t mean they stopped evolving. A genetic analysis published in 2010 suggests that their ancestors split from ancestral bonobos 930,000 years ago, and that the ancestors of three living subspecies diverged 460,000 years ago. Central and eastern chimps became distinct only 93,000 years ago. “They’re clearly doing a good job at being chimps,” Pobiner said. “They’re still around, and as long as we don’t destroy their habitat, they probably will be” for many years to come. Why Humans Outlive Apescenter_img Could Evolution Ever Bring Back the Dinosaurs? Why Do Some Animals Eat Their Own Poop? While we were migrating around the globe, inventing agriculture and visiting the moon, chimpanzees — our closest living relatives — stayed in the trees, where they ate fruit and hunted monkeys. Modern chimps have been around for longer than modern humans have (less than 1 million years compared to 300,000 for Homo sapiens, according to the most recent estimates), but we’ve been on separate evolutionary paths for 6 million or 7 million years. If we think of chimps as our cousins, our last common ancestor is like a great, great grandmother with only two living descendants. But why did one of her evolutionary offspring go on to accomplish so much more than the other?

To get special status for AP Naidu to protest in Delhi

first_imgSHARE Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is planning to protest against the NDA government for ignoring its election promise of granting special status to the State, by going on a day-long hunger strike in New Delhi on Monday. He announced the decision in the State Assembly at Amaravati on Friday, the last day of the Budget session, while replying to the debate on the Vote-on-Account Budget.Accusing the NDA government led by the BJP, in particular Prime Minister Narendra Modi, of going back on the promises made to the AP people in 2014 during the joint election campaign by the Telugu Desam Party and the BJP, Naidu alleged that the Prime Minister simply did not bother about the provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, the promise of granting special category status to the State made by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the Rajya Sabha, and his (Prime Minister Modi’s) own promises made to the people in 2014. “The Prime Minister is planning to visit the State later this month. What will he tell the people of Andhra Pradesh at Guntur and Visakhapatnam where he is planning to hold meetings?” the Chief Minister wondered. He also criticised the Rafale deal, demonetisation and the Prime Minister’s speech in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. “Yesterday, the honourable Prime Minister castigated the Congress for its subversive role in the past in toppling State governments right from the Namboodiripad-Government of Kerala in 1959 to the NTR government in the early 1980s. Today, the Karnataka Chief Minister has openly accused the BJP’s State unit of destabilising his government,” Naidu said.It is learnt that Naidu will undertake his protest programme in the Andhra Bhavan in New Delhi from 8 am to 8 pm.
