Tennis ace heads to preschool in Serbia to highlight UNICEF campaign

27 September 2011Novak Djokovic, the world’s top tennis player and a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador, has visited a kindergarten in his native Serbia to spotlight the agency’s efforts to promote early childhood education in a country with low enrolment rates. Mr. Djokovic, who became a national ambassador for UNICEF a month ago, toured the Pcelica (“Little Bee”) kindergarten in Smederevo yesterday and played with some of the children who attend the centre.“I had a lot of fun… they were so eager to play and ask questions and show their little talents,” he said in a Twitter message. “I hope to see more of these kinds of institutions which integrate children from all areas, and children with disabilities and Roma children.”Fewer than half of Serbian children aged between three and five attend pre-school, and the rate is as low as 10 per cent among some vulnerable groups, according to a press release issued by UNICEF.Working with the Serbian Government, the agency has launched a five-year strategy to expand existing services and to develop specialized programmes to encourage early childhood education among marginalized groups.“The starting line is not the same for all children,” Mr. Djokovic said after the visit. “Those born into poverty or on the margins of society require our extra support to realize their dreams. Pre-school programmes are essential to give every young child the maximum possibilities to succeed in his further education.”Lesley Miller, the acting country representative for UNICEF, said the agency was especially pleased that Mr. Djokovic – who has won four Grand Slam singles crowns during his career – has chosen to focus on early childhood education.“Our goal is that all children, and especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have a good start in life,” she said.Earlier this month, another national ambassador for UNICEF in Serbia, the female tennis star Ana Ivanovic, held a class for pupils from 10 primary schools to promote the importance of reading books. The class was held as part of an anti-bullying programme known as “Schools without Violence.”Ms. Ivanovic, who was formerly ranked number one in the world, told the pupils about her favourite books and those titles that have made the biggest impact, and handed each child a book at the end of the class as a present to encourage further reading. read more

Police review surveillance video in Carlos Hyde alleged assault case

Lantern file photoThe Columbus Division of Police have obtained surveillance video of an alleged assault of a woman at a Columbus bar Saturday, in which Ohio State football player Carlos Hyde was named as a “person of interest,” Columbus Police Sgt. Richard Weiner confirmed Wednesday to The Lantern.Weiner said police are reviewing the surveillance video of the incident, which occurred at about 2 a.m. Saturday at the Sugar Bar 2, located at 303 S. Front Street, according to a Columbus Police report.The woman told police she did not know the suspect who allegedly assaulted her but could identify him, according to the report.No charges have been filed against Hyde, but the investigation is still ongoing, Weiner said. Columbus Police have not yet interviewed the woman.According to a Tuesday report from Charles Robinson of Yahoo!

MAC fetes Dominion Diamond and Vale with 2017 TSM Excellence Awards

first_imgThe Mining Association of Canada (MAC) has awarded Dominion Diamond Corp’s Ekati diamond mine and Vale Newfoundland and Labrador Ltd’s Voisey’s Bay mine with the 2017 Towards Sustainable Mining® (TSM) Excellence Awards for their innovative sustainability projects. Dominion Diamond and Vale were recognized with the awards at the CIM Awards Gala in Montreal.“Both Dominion Diamond and Vale have been recognized with TSM Excellence Awards for demonstrating how leading mining companies are integrating sustainability into all aspects of their business, from transforming how they process waste on site to how they ship their products to market. We congratulate both companies for successfully finding new opportunities to protect the environment and preserve the traditional cultures of local Indigenous communities, and for inspiring others to follow their lead,” stated Pierre Gratton, President and CEO, MAC.Dominion Diamond purchased the Ekati mine in the Northwest Territories in 2013. Since that time, the company has worked to transform how waste is managed at the site to improve sustainability and limit environmental impacts. Various actions throughout the years have significantly reduced the mine’s waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and have inspired communities and other mining companies in the region to follow Dominion’s lead.In 2013, Dominion started purchasing environmentally-friendly products for the mine, such as corn-oil based garbage bags, sugarcane take-out containers, and compostable disposable utensils to reduce the amount of chlorine-rich plastics in the waste incinerator. The company then restricted incineration to paper and organic waste and launched a two-year educational campaign for all staff on waste management and segregation. Items such as oily rags, glass, plastics, cans, and other recyclables are removed from the mine site and sent for recycling or proper disposal. These actions have prevented nearly 75,000 kilograms of plastics and 193,000 kilograms of oily rags from being incinerated, reducing emissions from the mine’s two incinerators into the environment and keeping them well below federal guidelines.In 2015, Dominion installed an in-vessel composter—the first mine in Canada’s North to do so. Now, roughly half of organic waste generated at the Ekati mine is composted. By the end of 2016, more than 67,000 kg of organic waste has been diverted, reducing GHG emissions by 210 t CO2 equivalent and diesel consumption by 74,000 litres. Thanks to the in-vessel composter, Dominion is often able to shut down one or both incinerators entirely, which has decreased scrubber water consumption by an estimated 25%.More recently, in 2016, Dominion launched a study to evaluate the use of site-generated compost in reclamation work as a means of adding nutrients to the processed kimberlite and to promote vegetation growth. If the study shows positive results, it will create a new opportunity to transform site-generated waste into a powerful tool in reclamation.“Dominion takes our responsibility to the environment seriously, as demonstrated through our waste management program, and we are honoured to be recognized for those efforts. We are particularly proud of our teams that have worked so hard to transform how waste is managed at the site to reduce emissions, improve sustainability, and keep the environment clean and safe,” stated Brendan Bell, Chief Executive Officer, Dominion Diamond Corp.The Innu and Inuit on the North Coast of Labrador have a deep cultural connection to the land-fast sea ice. During winter, the ice serves as a transportation route for harvesting and to access other coastal communities. Vale’s Voisey’s Bay mine and concentrator operation (pictured), which is located in the region, uses Anaktalak Bay shipping route to ship its products and to resupply the site. Top priorities for both the company and the local communities are to ensure shipping has minimal interference with Aboriginal traditional lifestyles and that residents can safely cross the ship’s track. For more than a decade, Vale and local communities and stakeholders have collaborated to achieve these goals, resulting in new and innovative approaches and technologies.Years before Voisey’s Bay became operational, Vale and the Labrador Inuit Association (now the Nunatsiavut Government) developed a Shipping Agreement, incorporating Inuit traditional knowledge and requiring Inuit involvement to implement. The Winter Shipping Program launched in 2005 when Voisey’s Bay became operational. In 2007, Vale evaluated the program and, based on feedback from the local communities, worked to reduce the time it took to get safely across the ship’s track. Vale worked with Sikumiut Environmental Management, a local Inuit company that had been monitoring and supporting the winter shipping program for Vale, to develop a floating pontoon-type bridge. A prototype was successfully tested and a full system was implemented in 2008. The pontoon bridges are deployed across the ship’s fresh track at key locations along the 40-km shipping route. Reflective markers and signage are added along the route to ensure safe crossing. When the track freezes, additional “ice bridges” are established at other locations. Once safe crossing locations are established, a multi-faceted communications system alerts residents of their locations as well as shipping activity.Community input has been paramount to the program’s success and is also reflected in other aspects of the agreement. For example, there are two six-week closure periods when shipping cannot take place: in the fall when ice is forming and in the spring when ice is breaking up. Closure periods have also been adjusted to reflect weather conditions and public holidays.“We are humbled and honoured to be recognized with the TSM Community Engagement Excellence Award,” said Jennifer Maki, Executive Director of Base Metals with Vale and CEO of Vale Canada. “This award belongs equally to the Innu and Inuit communities on the North Coast of Labrador. Their shared commitment to collaboration and positive dialogue allowed us to achieve innovative solutions together that address the needs of all concerned.”last_img read more

The court heard that she also received a Tetanus vaccine and later attended her GP.Judge Groarke was told that Sophie’s wounds have left two half-centimetre scars on her nose and chin. She had developed a fear of large and medium-sized dogs and would need comfort and reassurance from her parents if she met one.AssessmentMs O’Connell said that a psychological assessment had revealed that Sophie developed post-traumatic stress disorder and her sleep had been disturbed for several months following the incident.Through her father Joseph Daney, of The Oaks, Ridgewood, Swords, Co Dublin, Sophie sued Maxi Zoo (Ireland) Limited, with a registered address at Westpoint Business Park, Link Road, Ballincollig, Co Cork, and the Fitzpatricks for negligence.Counsel told the court that liability was not an issue in the case. She said the defendants had made a €20,000 settlement offer and she recommended acceptance of it.Judge Groarke, approving the offer on behalf of all of the defendants, said that a trauma of that nature could result in long-lasting fears.Read: Man spotted running from stolen car arrested in connection with south Dublin robbery 33,878 Views 95 Comments last_img read more

Bronzage un parasol naturel antiUV offert par lévolution

first_imgBronzage : un parasol naturel anti-UV offert par l’évolutionÉtats-Unis – Des chercheurs établissent le rapport entre variations annuelles de l’ensoleillement et réaction de la peau humaine. Le véritable enjeu ? L’équilibre. Autrement dit : des UV, oui mais pas trop…D’un côté, l’effet bénéfique des ultraviolets solaires sur notre épiderme : la production de vitamine D, essentielle à l’absorption du calcium et du phosphore dans l’organisme, évitant le rachitisme. De l’autre, leur effet négatif : la destruction des folates (sels de l’acide folique), intervenant dans la synthèse d’acides aminés et nucléiques. Face à ces deux contraintes, la peau a inventé un processus régulateur : le bronzage.À lire aussiSoleil : Pourquoi est-ce que l’on bronze ?Des chercheurs de la Penn State University ont publié récemment un rapport qui montre que la pigmentation de la peau varie au long de l’année pour optimiser l’équilibre entre capture suffisante d’UV et protection contre leur excès.Sous les hautes latitudes (Canada, Scandinavie, Russie, Europe de l’ouest…), l’évolution a donné aux populations une peau peu pigmentée pour compenser le faible taux d’UV. Dans les zones intermédiaires (Amérique du Sud, Méditerranée, Chine…), ou l’amplitude du rayonnement selon les saisons est plus grande, ils bronzent – ou pâlissent – plus facilement, pour s’adapter à l’intensité lumineuse. Enfin, sous les tropiques, une peau riche en mélanine protège du sur-ensoleillement, l’exposition tout au long de l’année garantissant par ailleurs un apport suffisant.L’étude infirme au passage l’idée selon laquelle une peau foncée serait une simple adaptation prémunissant contre les brûlures du soleil et les cancers cutanés, puisque ces affections n’altèrent pas la capacité reproductive des sujets atteints, et n’ont donc pas dû jouer un grand rôle sélectif dans l’évolution de notre espèce.Le 27 juin 2010 à 19:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

ASA and PHC Announce Results of NHibit® Seed Treatment Satisfaction Guarantee program

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) and Plant Health Care, Inc. (PHC) today announced that the 2008 growing season “N-Hibit® Seed Treatment Satisfaction Guarantee” program was an unqualified success.”ASA partnered with PHC on the project because part of our mission is to help identify new ways for ASA members to maximize soybean yield and profitability,” said ASA President John Hoffman, a soybean producer from Waterloo, Iowa. “N-Hibit’s ability to reduce SCN damage and boost overall plant health is consistent with that mission, so ASA worked with PHC to make our members aware of the Satisfaction Guarantee program.””Once again, results with N-Hibit Seed Treatment have been positive,” said Rick Rice, PHC Director of U.S. Sales and Marketing. Data in 2006 and 2007 showed an average yield gain of 7.2 percent, or 2.9 bu/acre, with N-Hibit Gold CST over the untreated control. Results in 2008 were even better, as replicated trial data from 17 sites, ranging from Ohio to Nebraska, revealed a soybean yield increase of 3.4 bushels per acre over the untreated control, with N-Hibit-treated yields averaging 62.0 bushels/acre compared to the untreated control average of 58.6 bushels/acre. The combined effect of nematode reduction and enhanced plant growth are the primary factors associated with these results.Rice further stated, “We wanted growers to share our confidence, and the Satisfaction Guarantee program assured them of a full refund of the purchase price paid for N-Hibit if they weren’t fully satisfied with its performance on treated acreage. That confidence paid off, as less than 3 percent of the acreage treated with N-Hibit resulted in requests for refunds. And because the few farmers who were less than satisfied with their results received a full refund, they’ve all agreed to use N-Hibit again in the future. With a better than 97 percent success rate and the relationships we’ve developed with the farmers who didn’t experience a yield gain, we couldn’t be more pleased.”The active ingredient in N-Hibit is harpin protein, which stimulates the same plant growth response that occurs when a plant experiences stress. The induced response results in a healthier plant and a reduction in the number of nematodes that host on the roots. Harpin proteins do not enter the plant. They bind with the plant’s external harpin protein receptors, which are present on both seed and foliage. After the proteins initiate the plant’s natural self defense and growth systems, they harmlessly disintegrate. For more information about PHC, please visit www.planthealthcare.com.last_img read more

Heres how much Indians spend on Chinese smartphones the numbers will shock

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will visit the facility to inaugurate a new Samsung unit on July 9, 2018.IANSThe Chinese handset makers have continued to dominate the Indian markets as consumers in India have spent more the Rs 50,000 crore in the financial year 2018 on buying China-made smartphones.The numbers are staggering as this amount is attributed only to the top four Chinese brands which are nearly two times what they spent on them in the last fiscal. The Economic Times has reported that the trend is expected to continue in near future.It is to be noted that the Indian smartphone market is heavily dominated by the Chinese companies with top four Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, and Honor including few other Chinese brands like Lenovo-Motorola, One-Plus, and Infinix making up make up more than 50 percent of the total Indian smartphone market by sales.Two market analysts have argued that the Chinese brands are providing high-specification models at a cheaper price as against their competitive South Korean, Japanese and Indian companies and have successfully managed to establish themselves as global brands.Tarun Pathak, the associate director Counterpoint Research, said that Shenzhen hardware and R&D hub and the supply chain ecosystem are readily available to these Chinese brands “This has helped them to be innovators and to be always on top of trends,” he added.On the other hand, these Chinese companies have managed to create millions of jobs in India, thanks to their local manufacturing promises made towards “Make in India”.In April, Xiaomi had announced its plan to invest Rs 15,000 crore in smartphone component manufacturing. Oppo is also constructing two new manufacturing units in Uttar Pradesh. Vivo’s manufacturing plant at Greater Noida employs more than 5,000 people.Chinese smartphone manufacturers have dominated in the lower and mid-price segments where Xiaomi has dominated in the Rs 6,000-13,000 band, Oppo and Vivo in the Rs 10,000-22,000 one. Honor is making inroads in the Rs 8,000-12,000 segment.One of the top executives of these companies said, “These price segments account for more than 80% of the overall market where no Indian brands have managed to cut the ice and Samsung is the sole non-Chinese brand to fight it out.”last_img read more

Windows 10 Taskbar not hiding Here is the fix

first_imgWindows 10 Taskbar not hiding? Here is the fix! by Martin Brinkmann on April 29, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 25 commentsThe Windows 10 taskbar is probably displayed on most users systems all the time. The core reason for that is likely that many are unaware that the taskbar can be hidden, and that others prefer a less dynamic interface.Hiding the taskbar makes room for a tiny bit of extra space on the desktop that application windows may use, and if you like your desktop clean and tidy, you may find that it looks better as well.Windows 10 ships with the same taskbar hiding options as previous versions of Windows. The functionality is controlled through a preference which you find in Settings > Personalization > Taskbar (open the Settings app with Windows-I).There you find two options that manage the auto-hiding functionality of the Windows 10 taskbar:Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode.Automatically hide the taskbar in tablet mode.The first applies to all desktop PCs and notebooks, the second only if the device runs in tablet mode.When enabled, the taskbar is hidden automatically by the operating system. You can bring it up when you move the mouse cursor over the taskbar area.Windows 10 Taskbar not hiding?The feature works well most of the time. It can happen however that the taskbar won’t hide automatically anymore. You notice this right away, as it does not go away anymore automatically.The main cause for the taskbar to stay visible — temporarily — is if a program or app demands your attention. The program icon may flash in this case to indicate that it wants you to interact with it.This is the case when certain program operations complete, or when you receive calls, new emails or chat messages.It is usually enough to click on the program or application icon to confirm that you have taken note of it, and the taskbar should hide again afterwards automatically.Background apps, those that run in the background for the most part, may also require your attention. This happens mostly when the background application changes its icon, for instance to change the number of new messages.These issues are resolved easily, but there are situations where the taskbar remains visible even if programs or apps stay silent and don’t demand your attention.Quick FixA reliable option when it comes to hiding issues of the Windows 10 taskbar is to restart the Explorer process.Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Esc to open the Windows Task Manager.If you see only the basic interface, click on more details.Locate the Windows Explorer process under processes, and click on it with the left mouse button.Click on the restart button to restart the process.You may kill and restart Explorer from the command line as well if you prefer that (or want to create a script out of it for even faster access). Thanks Anatoly for the tip.Use the keyboard shortcut Windows + R to open the runbox.Type cmd.Type taskkill /im explorer.exe /fType explorerType exitTroubleshoot the issueThe first thing you may want to do is try and click anywhere on the desktop (a blank spot there), to see if the taskbar hides automatically when you do. The taskbar may remain visible in some cases until you do something, and clicking anywhere on the desktop is one of the easier things in this case. Also, make sure the mouse cursor is not on the taskbar, as it won’t hide in this case either.Second thing you may want to do if the Windows 10 taskbar is not hiding anymore automatically, is to verify that the preferences are still set to hide the taskbar automatically.While it seems unlikely that preferences may change on their own, this may happen after Windows upgrades for instance. Before you troubleshoot other possible causes, this is the one thing that you should verify just to make sure.Digging deeperNow that you have checked the most common reasons why the Windows 10 taskbar is not hiding, you need to dig deeper if this did not resolve the issue.I mentioned earlier that application notifications may prevent the taskbar from hiding on the Windows machine. While that is easy to verify for icons that are displayed, it may also be caused by program icons that are hidden (not displayed directly on the taskbar, but hidden behind the little arrow icon)You may link a particular program to the issue, for instance if you start it regularly, and if the taskbar refuses to hide each time afterwards.Start by opening the Taskbar preferences again. This is done with the keyboard shortcut Windows-I, and navigating to Personalization > Taskbar in the Settings application.Locate and click on “select which icons appear on the taskbar” under notification area.I recommend that you check the “always show all icons in the notification area”. The reason for that is that you get a good overview of all icons, and can identify the culprit easily this way.Since no icon is hidden anymore, you may spot the application that is causing the taskbar to remain visible with little effort.Please note that doing so will display quite a few icons on the taskbar at all times. This is only temporarily though, and you may disable the setting again once you identify the offending application.While this may resolve the issue for you, as you can simply click on the icon to get the taskbar to auto-hide again, it can still be an issue if the program prevents the hiding regularly.One option that you have in this case is to disable notifications for that particular program, if available, or hide the program so that its icon is not displayed in the system tray area anymore.You may use the Settings page shown above to hide individual icons from appearing on the Windows taskbar.As far as notifications are concerned, you find some listed under Settings > System > Notifications & actions.You may turn off “Show app notifications” there for instance to disable most notifications that applications may trigger.Or, you may check the section for individual programs and applications, to disable notifications for those listed there.Additional informationYou find several policies in the Group Policy of Windows that you may set to control notifications, or the taskbar.Tap on the Windows-key, type gpedit.msc and hit the Enter-key. This opens the Group Policy Editor (note that it is only available on Pro or Enterprise editions of Windows 10.The following policies may be of interest to you:User Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Lock all taskbar settings — This can be useful if you don’t want the taskbar settings to change once you have configured them.User Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Turn off all balloon notifications – Notifications balloons are not shown if you enable the policy.User Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Turn of automatic promotion of notification icons to the taskbar.User Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Turn off feature advertisement balloon notifications.User Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Notifications > turn off calls during Quiet HoursUser Configuration > Start Menu and Taskbar > Notifications > Turn off toast notificationsTroubleshooting VideoSoftwareThe Windows Club released a free program for Windows 10, 8 and 7 that hides the taskbar using a hotkey. What’s particularly interesting about it is that it hides the taskbar, but not the start button.You can download the program from the official website. The shortcut is Ctrl-Esc to toggle the taskbar’s visibility.Now You: do you display or hide the taskbar on Windows?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Taskbar not hiding? Here is the fix!DescriptionUse the following tips, programs and troubleshooting suggestions if the Windows 10 taskbar is not hiding anymore automatically.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Sims postgame A lot of people wrote me off It

first_imgSims postgame, “A lot of people wrote me off. It wasn’t easy and a lot of people said it couldn’t be done” #AZvsDEN— Craig Grialou (@CraigAZSports) September 4, 2015 Top Stories Thomas completed 9-of-10 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t turn the ball over — although he took two sacks — and hit rookie receiver J.J. Nelson for a pretty, 59-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. That gave Arizona the go-ahead score to win.Earlier in the second half, Thomas led the Cardinals on a seven-play, 51-yard scoring drive on their first possession of the third quarter, giving Arizona its first lead of the game, 16-13, after the extra point was missed.Sims completed 14-of-22 passes for 101 yards with a touchdown, no interceptions and a fumble.The fumble could have been blamed on Bradley Sowell, who at left tackle lost his leverage on a pass-rusher. At the same time, Sims sat in the pocket for a good few seconds and didn’t react to it collapsing once he couldn’t find an open receiver.The quarterback also took three sacks — not all were on the offensive line. Sims postgame, “Never get too high, never get too low. I’m blessed to be here, to get this opportunity.” #AZvsDEN— Craig Grialou (@CraigAZSports) September 4, 2015 After his turnover, Sims settled in.He completed a pass on 3rd-and-4 to Jaxon Shipley and helped the Cardinals make up a 13-0 first-half deficit to trail 13-10 at halftime. Sims later found Shipley on another third-down situation.It helped Sims that, at the same time, Arizona began showing promise on the ground with veteran running back Chris Johnson getting warmed up in his debut.Sims’ touchdown pass, which cut Denver’s lead to 13-7, went to rookie running back Paul Lasike in the corner of the end zone, where Lasike avoided teammate Ifeanyi Momah — the intended target — and two Bronco defenders to hold on for the score. – / 31 Arizona Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas (6) dives for yards as Denver Broncos defensive end Josh Watson (70) and Zaire Anderson (47) defend during the second half of an NFL preseason football game, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015, in Denver.

Not a lot of people gave me the chance.” #AZvsDEN It’ll be tough for the Arizona Cardinals to give up on their 2014 draft pick and put their trust in a quarterback who began his tenure with an invite to rookie mini-camp.Let’s look beyond that while examining the final tryout for the team’s third-string quarterback job.For a fairly even performance between second-year pro Logan Thomas and undrafted rookie Phillip Sims, the difference could be in turnovers and big-play potential. Thomas had fewer of the latter and more of the former as each quarterback got a half of preseason football under their belts in a 22-20 win against the Denver Broncos on Thursday.
