Organize your home office and MakeSpace everywhere else!

first_imgIn my world, organization and sanity go hand-in-hand. This is even more true when I work from home.Perhaps you are the type that’s perfectly fine working in a bit of chaos – perhaps that’s how you thrive. However, if you are not that type of person, and you have been seeking some tips and tricks for home office organization and space saving then look no further!Let me be your neurotic sherpa, up the mountain of efficiency:Designate a workspaceA home office in a one bedroom apartment isn’t necessarily an option. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a particular part of your living space that is your designated workspace. Having a designated office space in your apartment, whether it be set up for that, or that you set up every day, will allow you to build steady and productive daily routines. A separate work space to go to in the morning means a separate space to LEAVE at the end of the workday, and it also means an easier time when dealing with tax deductions.Make it your ownWithin your little haven of productivity surround yourself with personal touches or little reminders of why you hustle. You don’t have to be bound by the dreaded cubicle, so you can make your space as personal as you want it. Make sure the space is well lit and consider jazzing it up with a productive color.Use furniture that has multiple usesA great trick for maximizing small spaces is to use furniture that has multiple uses such as a console table that can be used as a room divider or against a wall. Check out these amazing convertible desks for home workspaces (try not to drool on the computer, you might want to protect the keyboard before clicking).Maximize the wallsCube shelving above your workspace can be used as just about everything from bookshelf to tchotchke display and beyond. These shelves are really handy because of how versatile they are. Any wall mounted shelf system is a great way to maximize storage space without taking up floor space.Store what you don’t useNow that you have the tools to organize your home office grasshopper, let’s move on to the rest of your worldly possessions. In the interest of efficiency and space-saving, finding a pocket of your living space for camping equipment might not be super easy. However, investing in a full sized storage space isn’t entirely cost effective either.If you find yourself with barely enough room for your bed, and you happen to live in NYC (and yes, those things typically do go hand-in-hand), then feast your space-starved eyes on our featured discount partner: MakeSpace. MakeSpace is a great service for people in the middle, who need a little extra breathing room at home, but doesn’t necessarily need an ENTIRE storage space that may or may not be bigger than their actual apartment. The service is $25/month for storing four bins and as a Freelancers Union member you can take advantage of a $35 credit!Ashlee Christian is from the north-side of Chicago and will never stop saying “pop” or eating pizza with a fork and knife, so please stop trying to change her.

KBCarson Cunningham (uniform connoisseur) – Carson does uniform drive-bys and actually has a real job covering sports for a real news station in OKC. 1. What’s more concerning: OSU’s sometimes stagnant offense or Tech’s sometimes prolific offense?Porter: I think it has to be OSU. You can beat Tech if their offense is great, you might be in trouble if yours isn’t. Carson: Stagnant Southwell: OSU’s offense. We have too many weapons to ever be stagnant.OKC Dave: Asked another way: “Who do you have more faith in? Spencer or Yurcich?” Spencer. Ames: This week? I’m more concerned with Tech’s offense, their defense is in shambles.Nolo: Our defense has been *gulp* more consistent than our offense as of late so I’ll have to go with our stagnant offense. Boone: Stagnant offense Amilian: I didn’t know Tech’s offense has been prolific at times, but regardless, has to OSU’s offense. Shepherd: OSU’s sometimes stagnant offense. We’re living in the twilight zone where I like our defense’s odds against anyone.2. Tech firing its defensive coordinator is like _____________.Porter: Every presidential election ever. New dude, same story.Carson: A timeless tradition. Usually happens after the OSU game, though.Nolo: watching Dumb and Dumber for the 900th time. You know what’s coming, but it’s still funny.Southwell: Browns quarterbacks. They might have be pretty good, but we won’t know if they don’t have a supporting cast.OKC Dave: Jameis promising that he’s learned his lesson. It won’t make a real difference.Ames: OSU offensive coordinators getting head coaching jobs…..except the opposite.Boone: Its like the… Oh look, Arkansas just scored another touchdown…Amilian: Telling your kids Santa isn’t coming this year.

Are you in on Thursday night games?Porter: I like them — I feel like most of OSU’s have been memorable so maybe there’s some Recency Bias going on there but I’m in.Nolo: Against teams like Tech? Why not. ESPN hypes those games up no matter who is playing, so assuming things go as planned, Condoleezza Rice will probably think we just beat a national title contender. Carson: Watching on TV? All-in. For work? All-in. For the game day experience? It’s just not the same. Southwell: I don’t mind them. I mind going back to work Friday when I’ve already had a taste of the weekend.

Not so much now when I have to be at work on Friday. Great exposure, though.5. A 14-point spread feels high. Is it high?Porter: Given that Tech’s defensive coordinator just got fired for maybe or maybe not being under the influence of a controlled substance WHILE ON CAMPUS I’d say it might be low. Nolo: OSU at home in a nationally televised game against a team they dominated the last three meetings who just fired their D coordinator after getting pummeled by a team who didn’t win a conference game last year? I think it’s about right. Carson: The defense has changed things. Normally you couldn’t favor Gundy-Daxx-QB-Carousel by 14 over any Big 12 team. (sans Kansas. Always sans Kansas) Southwell: It’s high, but I’m not worried. OKC Dave: Sagarin has it at 13. I trust Vegas has it right. Ames: I think that’s about right, all things considered. Boone: Seems high to me, but Tech has been horrendous thus far. Amilian: Not at all. Tech is a mess and there’s no recipe of an upset. Shepherd: Feels high. I stress about every game.6. What is Daxx’s ceiling? What about his floor? Porter: His ceiling is a richer version of Chelf, his floor is a slightly poorer version of Jeff Driskel.

Porter: I think Gundy thinks it’s 1A and 1B off the field right now. Like, today. Nolo: Gundy was the original Kingsbury. Kliff doesn’t have the resources at Tech to be as consistently successful as Gundy. Carson: Kliff is Gundy 2.0 – the updated model: Modern hair, shades, fashion, etc. Gundy wasn’t winning big his first few years. It will take Kliff time to grow into the HC role, like Mike. Southwell: Gundy was the original Kingsbury. We stole Tech’s coach before he was their coach. #PistolsFiring > #GunsUp OKC Dave: Kingsbury is having too much fun with the media to be Gundy 2.0. He’s also not winning enough games. Boone: Kingsbury is the less successful Gundy 2.0. Ames: I think Kingsbury is Gundy 2.0. Gundy’s hair goes vertical and Kingsbury’s hair goes horizontal, kind of like their passing philosophy. Amilian: I don’t get the correlation. How are the two similar? It sure isn’t fashion. Kliff would never tuck in a jacket. Never. Shepherd: Kingsbury is the store brand version of Mike Gundy. Can’t beat the original.8. Throwbacks happening? Porter: Gun to my head…yes. Nolo: You tell me, pistolsboy. You’re the uniform “expert”. Carson: Southwell: No. But I hope I’m wrong. OKC Dave: Yes. Boone: Absolutely. Ames: Definite maybe. Amilian: Yep. Shepherd: Yes.

Will Liverpool pursue Alisson this summer?

first_imgTransfers Alisson’s Anfield audition – but will Liverpool move for a new No.1 this summer? Neil Jones Click here to see more stories from this author Liverpool Correspondent Last updated 1 year ago 17:00 6/4/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Alisson Brazil 2017-18 Getty/Goal Transfers Liverpool Brazil v Croatia Croatia Brazil Friendlies The Roma goalkeeper is admired by the Reds as doubts over Loris Karius’s future persist following his Champions League nightmare It’s the sight many Liverpool supporters want to see on a regular basis.There was Alisson Becker; gloves on, taking the acclaim of the crowd, filling the goal at the Kop End.Maybe, just maybe. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Brazil’s goalkeeper is becoming well acquainted with Anfield. That’s two visits now in little more than a month. For him, the second time was better than the first.Battered with Roma back in April, the 25-year-old could enjoy Sunday’s occasion a little more, his clean sheet helping Brazil step up their World Cup preparations with a 2-0 win over Croatia, on a day when the returning Neymar stole the show. For Liverpool, goalkeepers are a hot topic right now. Loris Karius’s errors in the Champions League final in Kiev have ensured that the No.1 jersey at Anfield will be discussed and debated all summer long. You don’t have to look far to find an opinion on that subject.Alisson, then, has found himself brought into the equation. Liverpool, Goal understands, are long-time admirers and earlier this season made enquiries as to the possibility of bringing him to Merseyside.Discussions were initially promising, with the player and his representatives keen on the idea of joining the Jurgen Klopp revolution. The Premier League appeals, as does the idea of joining up with Roberto Firmino, his international colleague, and Mo Salah, his former club-mate. Players, it is increasingly clear, find Liverpool and Klopp a very attractive proposition at the moment.Roma, though, have other ideas. The Italians are acutely aware of what happened last summer, when they sold a star player to Liverpool and were made to look foolish. The £36.9 million (€42.1m/$49.3m) received for Salah last June already looks paltry. Monchi, Roma’s sporting director, is keen to avoid a repeat – and unlike last year his club are under no pressure to sell this time.The impasse meant that, in February, Liverpool took the unusual step of informing Alisson’s agent, Ze Maria Neis, that they would not be bidding for his client this summer . Karius’s form at the time was improving, and the idea was that the German would be given a prolonged chance to establish himself as No.1 .Kiev, though, has certainly re-opened the debate. Karius’s two high-profile errors, on the biggest stage of all, raise fresh questions as to his long-term suitability. The 24-year-old will be supported by the club, but his credentials and his confidence have suffered a huge hit. It would be a huge gamble on Klopp’s part to place all his trust in the former Mainz man next season.Loris Karius Real Madrid LiverpoolWith Simon Mignolet reluctant to continue in his role as deputy, and interest from several clubs across the continent, Liverpool are likely to need at least one goalkeeper this summer anyway. They have high hopes for Kamil Grabara, the Polish youth international who has impressed at Under-23 level, but Danny Ward, the third choice, played just one game last season and turns 25 later this month; the Welshman would be wise to seek regular football himself.The question, then, is whether Liverpool commit big money and go after a top-class No.1, effectively ending Karius’s Reds career, or whether they back their man and sign someone to deputise and compete instead.If it is the former, then Alisson will very much be in their thoughts – more so than, say, Jack Butland, who is rated nowhere near as highly among the recruitment and coaching staff. Others, such as Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid or the highly-rated Gigi Donnarumma of Milan, have been tentatively linked but nothing more.Liverpool had spotters watching Alisson at Anfield on Sunday, though his performance in the friendly against Croatia was a mixed one in truth, which told us little about his suitability.There were two smart saves down to his left – one from Andrej Kramaric in the first half, one from Ivan Perisic in the second – but also a few moments of hesitation with the ball at his feet; his first two contributions to the game saw him slam clearances straight out of play under pressure.Even expensive goalkeepers can make errors or misjudgments, though it was notable how willing Alisson was to receive and to play the ball short to his defenders. Karius, of course, found out the hard way that such a policy comes with its own risks.Alisson Becker Roma Liverpool UEFA Champions League 04242018Whatever happens this summer, Liverpool will be taking a gamble with their goalkeepers. Sticking with the status quo would be a huge show of faith at a time when many would cut their losses, while spending big on a new No.1 would be a significant statement. Klopp has never done that before as a manager.With Fabinho already on board and talks over a deal for Nabil Fekir continuing – Liverpool are keen to get that one wrapped up, but are yet to agree a fee with Lyon – the Reds are looking to make serious progress with their signings this summer.Much will need to change if Alisson is to be a part of that, but plenty of fans will be hoping it does.

What It’s Like to Fly on a Private Jet

first_img Editors’ Recommendations What is it like to fly on a private jet?It’s awesome. Now you know. But I should elaborate a bit.Private jet travel means no TSA security lines, no baggage check counter, no queueing up at the gate 30 minutes before the agents open the door 45 minutes after they were supposed to. It means large, comfortable seats, private restrooms, plentiful personal space, a glass or two of fine wine along with your fancy snacks, and a precisely maintained schedule.Steven John/The ManualAt least that was the case when I recently boarded a Cessna Citation Latitude for a 30-minute flight from Teterboro, New Jersey, to the Hamptons courtesy of NetJets, the largest private jet aviation company in the world. The ironic thing is that, despite the general impression of private jet travel as an exclusive affair reserved for CEOs and celebrities, a large portion of private jet passengers aren’t using the planes for fun, but rather to get work done.If there’s one thing I can certainly say about private air travel, it’s that commercial flight is no match when it comes to efficiency.According to Patrick Gallagher, executive vice president of sales and marketing for NetJets, often “the people flying private are the ones who have to get to two factories in different cities in the morning and then an afternoon meeting somewhere else too. Flying commercial, you just can’t do that.” He explained that more often than C-level executives use private jets to cruise around in luxury, midlevel managers use private aviation to shuttle between locations with maximum efficiency, getting more work done in less time and ultimately saving companies money thanks to this efficiency.If there’s one thing I can certainly say about private air travel, it’s that commercial flight is no match when it comes to efficiency. Once past the security gate outside a private airport, a passenger can be aboard his or her aircraft in a matter of minutes. With minimal traffic on the runway, the jets are usually in the air within minutes of scheduled departure times. I longed for any delay that would leave my flights sitting on the tarmac before takeoff or circling prior to landing, but alas both the flight east and the return back west took off and landed right on time. While in the air, the flight was smooth and stable despite the relatively small size of the 62-foot long aircraft, which has a 72-foot wingspan and a cabin in which I could almost stand up straight. Able to seat nine passengers in total, when loaded with four passengers and a two-man crew, the Citation Latitude has a range of 2,700 miles.The comfort and range combined with the moderate price tag (moderate for the private business jet category, mind you) of around $16.7 million per plane have made the Cessna Citation Latitude the best-selling aircraft in its size category, and NetJets has been acquiring the plane at a steady rate. Which is no surprise, really, as the company is both the oldest private jet aviation company on Earth and has the largest fleet of private jet aircraft, with about 700 jets in total.Net JetsIn case you were wondering, the name NetJets has nothing to do with the Internet. In fact, the company was founded back in 1964 as Executive Jet Aviation and acquired the NetJets name in 1987. The “net” is a reference to the company’s fractional ownership business model wherein several entities (meaning businesses and/or crazy rich people, which is to say, people who are quite well-to-do, not people who are wealthy and also insane) can purchase partial ownership of a given aircraft. Depending on the portion purchased, the owner(s) have access to anywhere from 50 to 400 hours of annual flight time, and with so many planes, a jet can be ready to take off within four hours of an owner requesting a flight. (Also, don’t worry if “your” plane is not available, they just put you on an identical or an even bigger one.)Don’t get me wrong, private jet travel is expensive stuff even with the NetJets model — you have to request pricing info from the company directly — but it’s more affordable to own a percentage of a plane than the whole damn thing. Maybe not quite in your or my price range at present, but, you know … let’s be aspirational.

Trump economic adviser Kudlow suffers heart attack days after G7 Summit

first_imgWASHINGTON – Donald Trump says his top economic adviser has suffered a heart attack, just days after joining the U.S. president in Quebec for the G7 Summit that ended with increased trade tensions between Canada and the U.S.Trump tweeted just minutes before his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday that Kudlow is being treated at a hospital near Washington, D.C.Trump’s tweet says, “Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack.”Kudlow’s condition wasn’t immediately released by Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.The G7 meeting last week was shadowed by the Trump administration’s escalation of rhetoric on trade and tariffs. It splintered shortly after the president left Quebec and tweeted he was pulling back his approval of a joint statement by the group.Trump unleashed a Twitter tirade about Justin Trudeau, miffed that the prime minister had reiterated that Canada intends to impose counter-tariffs on some American goods in retaliation for what he called the “insulting” tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports — which the president has justified on national security grounds.Kudlow appeared Sunday on CNN to back up Trump’s complaint that he had been blindsided by Trudeau’s criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference.He said on “State of the Union” that Trump “is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around” and accused Trudeau of “pouring collateral damage on this whole Korean trip.”Chief White House trade adviser Peter Navarro also took to the talk show circuit, telling Fox News there’s “a special place in hell” for Trudeau and anyone else who negotiates in “bad faith” with Trump.— With files from The Associated Presslast_img read more

Canadas NAFTA demands Good luck with that say skeptical US trade vets

By Alexander PanettaWASHINGTON — Some of Canada’s key demands in the upcoming NAFTA renegotiation will be a tough sell in the United States, according to former American trade officials who say they will be difficult to achieve in the climate of a Donald Trump, America First-themed presidency.The Canadian government has just released priorities for the talks which begin Wednesday and they include a broad desire for four new chapters, and two specific demands: fewer Buy American rules for public contracts and freer movement of professionals.It’s the latter two some see as a long shot.That includes a former official who oversaw procurement at the United States Trade Representative (USTR). Speaking in an interview a few days before Canada formally announced its positions, Stephen Kho explained why it’s always been difficult to extend free trade in procurement to the state and local level, as Canada wants.Canada has long desired a similar level of access to contracts at the subnational level that it enjoys at the federal level — and it mostly failed to get that in negotiations for the now-stalled Trans-Pacific Partnership.Kho says he doesn’t see how this would change now.American politics is moving in the opposite direction: Trump was elected on a promise to increase Buy American rules, not reduce them; it’s even a stated U.S. priority for the new NAFTA; the opposition is also with Trump on this, with Democratic lawmakers calling for NAFTA to allow less foreign procurement, not more.“It might be a problem,” said Kho, who was lead counsel on Buy American/procurement issues at USTR and now works at the Akin Gump firm.America First“It’s particularly going to be true of the Trump administration. It’s made it a point, very publicly, of tightening up the exceptions rules, waivers … (and proclaiming) America First. That will make it particularly difficult — and it’s difficult already.”He said it’s always good to talk about new ideas, but: “I don’t think expectations should be too high for this being liberalized further.”Canada announced that more liberalized procurement would be a priority, in a speech Monday by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland in which on the eve of her departure to Washington for round one of the NAFTA talks, she laid out about 10 priorities.She referred to the economic argument against buy-local rules.“Local-content provisions for major government contracts are political junk food: superficially appetizing, but unhealthy in the long run,” Freeland said.The basic argument against these provisions is they drive up the cost of projects — so taxpayers pay more, they get fewer new roads and bridges for their money, that reduces economic activity and in the long run it doesn’t save the economy any jobs.But it’s politically popular.Buy local vs bag a bargainPolls show huge voter support for buy-local policies amongst Americans, although more detailed polling has, on the other hand, shown that voters prefer getting a bargain to paying more for a product just because it’s made at home.Professional visas was another one of the more detailed priorities Freeland mentioned.What Canada wants is changes to a NAFTA jobs list which allows some people to more easily get a visa to work across the border.The jobs list is old and outdated. It mentions land surveyors and range conservationists, for instance, but not computer programmers. International companies want that jobs list in Chapter 16 expanded to make it easier for employees to move between offices.Robert Holleyman, former deputy U.S. trade czar to Barack Obama, says any changes to labour mobility could prove difficult. In an interview several days ago, before Freeland spoke, he predicted worker mobility might get swept into the turbulent U.S. immigration debate.That immigration issue has been fought to a stalemate in the American Congress. Congressional paralysis on immigration-related reforms is one reason that NAFTA list has never been updated.And the mood in Congress matters: in the end, it will have to vote on any NAFTA deal.“I think any question that deals with mobility of persons will be very difficult for the U.S. to do,” said Holleyman, who is now president of C&M International.“I think it would be, in any case — but particularly in the context of the current debates about immigration. I suspect that’ll be very difficult for the U.S. to do.” read more

Protesters gathers outside Mount Polley mine site of disaster 2 years ago

A aerial view shows the damage caused by a tailings pond breach near the town of Likely, B.C. Tuesday, August, 5, 2014. A First Nations protest group pledging to mount ongoing resistance gathered outside the gates of the Mount Polley mine in British Columbia’s central Interior on Thursday. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jonathan Hayward VICTORIA – The second anniversary of a mining disaster in British Columbia’s central Interior was marked with a First Nations protest and a pledge from the company that the situation has improved at the Mount Polley mine.On Aug. 4, 2014, a tailings storage facility burst at the mine, sending 24 million cubic metres of waste and water into nearby lakes and rivers.Outside the site on Thursday a group, which includes members of the Secwepemc Women’s Warrior Society, protested. They said in a statement that the community is exercising its sovereignty by taking direct action after the B.C. government granted the mine owner Imperial Metals (TSX:Ill) a permit in June to resume full operations.Kanahus Freedom, a spokeswoman for the warrior society, stated B.C. does not have jurisdiction to grant mining permits to companies “without the free, prior, informed consent of the Secwepemc Tribal Peoples.”“As long as Imperial Metals and the government that backs them continue to devastate our lands with no accountability, we will take whatever action necessary to defend our lands,” said a statement from protesters.Steve Robertson, Imperial Metals vice president of corporate affairs, said late Thursday that the group had left the site without incident and company operations were not disrupted. The mine employs 325 people.Robertson said earlier that Imperial Metals views the second anniversary of the tailings pond breach as reminder of the mine’s continued efforts improve its business.“We just continue to look at everyday as another day forward where we’re actually able to improve things and get back to a normalized operation at Mount Polley.”An independent, government-ordered panel of experts concluded the cause of the tailings breach was an inadequately designed dam at the open pit copper and gold mine that didn’t account for drainage and erosion failures beneath the pond.The disaster prompted reviews and resulted in the province implementing world-leading regulatory standards for the mining industry, Mines Minister Bill Bennett said.Robertson said the new measures put B.C. at the forefront of global standards for safety at tailings storage facilities at mines.“I would suggest that the Mount Polley tailings facility is probably one of the best studied facilities anywhere in the world,” he said.The tailings storage facility at Mount Polley has been repaired and improved, Robertson added.“We have a great deal of confidence that the current engineered design is more than adequate for the task it is required to do.”The Sierra Club of B.C. released a report this week by mining expert David Chambers that concluded the government could do more to ensure safety at tailings storage facilities.Bennett said since the disaster, the government and Imperial Metals have held hundreds of meetings with First Nations, communities, unions and the mining industry.Freedom said the protesters at the mine site are not behind the Williams Lake and Soda Creek Indian Bands, who supported re-opening the mine. She could not be reached for comment on Thursday.Lisa Kraus, vice president of the Likely Chamber of Commerce, said residents of the tiny community closest to the mine site support the operation, but the disaster has created divisions among residents.

first_imgASPIRANT TDS WILL soon be able to sit a state exam in politics, the Minister for Education has confirmed.Ruairí Quinn has announced that ‘Politics and Society’ will be included in the choice of subjects available to schools as part of the Leaving Cert.The Minister confirmed in answer to a parliamentary question that he had written to the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment seeking their “advice on a number of issues which need to be addressed before the subject can be made available”.Fine Gael Deputy Jim Daly, who tabled the question, said he had found during visits to schools that there was “an enormous appetite among second level students for information relating to how their country is governed and how decisions relating to taxes and expenditure are made”.He said that many of the mistakes of the past may not have been made “if people took a greater interest in the workings of Government during the so-called Celtic Tiger era”.“That has changed since the downturn and I am delighted the Government is playing its part by encouraging the study of politics by students at second level.”Read: Shane Ross: ‘We’ll see what the whistleblower says and if there’s any reason to keep it private’Read: €600k in leftover funding used to ‘manipulate taxpayer’, Creighton claimslast_img read more

Former Bahamas Environment Minister believes fair trial is impossible wants no jury

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 13, 2017 – Nassau – Kenred Dorsett, the former Minister of Environment for The Bahamas and his attorneys do not believe he can get a fair trial in The Bahamas and referenced the ongoing trial of former Turks and Caicos Premier Michael Misick as a case in point.  However, Wayne Munroe, QC who is one of the attorneys for Dorsett incorrectly states that Misick wanted there to be no jury and that his attorneys pushed for a juryless trial.It is actually quite the opposite, Michael Misick, on trial in the TCI for similar offenses to the tune of millions of dollars fought tirelessly to override the British decision to have a trial without jury and continues to call the absence of a jury of his peers, hearing his arguments in court both unconstitutional and unfair.Dorsett, who is accused of allegedly demanding payments of $10,000 and $50,000 from Jonathan Ash while being a public official; even allegedly threatening the man with a desist of his services unless the funds were paid on his account and who has been unable so far to satisfy the court with alibis for the list of dates investigations reveal that he allegedly committed these crimes, is going for a trial without jury.Munroe told media that Kenred Dorsett’s celebrity and the nature of the trial will make it near impossible to find a jury without biases.   Its back to court for Dorsett and his attorneys on January 11.#MagneticMediaNews#Dorsettsaysnojury#KenredDorsetttrial Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#Dorsettsaysnojury, #KenredDorsetttrial, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

Air Canada relaunches nonstop TorontoDelhi flight

first_imgAir Canada has relaunched its non-stop Toronto-Delhi flight, after a gap of seven years. The first 787-900 Dreamliner flight from Toronto touched down recently at Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport. Air Canada will operate four weekly flights on the route (Toronto-Delhi on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and the return leg on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday). According to Arun Pandeya, Country Manager–Air Canada, the airline will convert the existing frequency of four weekly to daily operations from September next year.The airline has deployed brand new Boeing 787-900 aircraft with three-cabin configuration on the route. Out of the 287 seats on offer, 237 are Economy, 21 in Premium Economy and 29 Business Class seats. Duncan Bureau, Vice President-Global Sales, Air Canada, said that the 787-9 is a world-class product suited for non-stop service. It is not the non-stop value proposition between India and Canada that the airline is offering, but it’s extremely seamless connectivity to 52 destinations in the U.S., Mexico, Caribbean, Havana and destinations in the South America.“While providing this non-stop value proposition, we are sure that there is a strong market for it here,” he said.Asked about the distribution strategy for the market, he said that the strategy is to sell the seats through all available channels. Travel trade, he said, is quite important for the airline globally, and has invested in building relationships with trade globally. However, he said that commissions for agents are governed by the quality of traffic they bring for the airline.Pandeya said that the product has been well curated for Indian passengers with onboard offering of Indian and Western meals, Bollywood music and movies for entertainment, besides friendly crew. “We will try to improve and evolve the product offerings in due course,” he said.last_img read more

first_img17. MelbourneThe art scene in this city is world famous, but as this photo proves, creativity isn’t restricted to the galleries. 5. Barossa ValleyAustralia’s vineyards are mainly found in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia. One of Australia’s best reds, the award-winning and internationally acclaimed Grange, is produced by the famous Penfolds winery in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. 26. CanberraAustralia’s capital is home to the parliament, pictured here. It’s the largest inland city in the country, which means you won’t be short of things to do here. 4. BaobabKoalas are cuter, but the humble Boabab tree is one of Australia’s emblematic natural wonders. The somwhat strange-looking tree, like a super-sized Bonsai, grows in low-lying areas, like this one by the beach, and can reach enormous sizes. 2. The 12 ApostlesA series of limestone stacks standing proudly off the coast of Victoria, the Apostles actually only ever numbered nine but were christened the Twelve for tourism reasons. Erosion has claimed one apostle so far and the remaining are expected to suffer the same fate. View them from the Great Ocean Road – one of the best drives on the continent. 3. UluruUluru, or Ayer’s Rock is one of the world’s most recognisable geographical features. But did you know that it’s home to a large population of bats, 73 species of reptile and a strange collection of mammals including the rufous hare-wallaby, the marsupial mole and great desert skink. 7. Rainbow ValleyThe Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve is a jaw-droppingly scenic natural reserve peppered with a variety of sandstone formations 100km south of Alice Springs in Northern Territory. The Valley is best experienced at sunrise and sunset, but it’s pretty impressive at any time. 23.

It’s a challenge for hikers and photographers alike, as it provides stunning views over Blue Mountains National Park. 12. An Aussie residentWell, we had to get a kangaroo in somewhere, so here it is representing Australia’s amazing wildlife. We could have gone for a wombat, a wallaby, a Tasmanian devil, or maybe a galah, but it had to be Skippy here. 14. SydneyThough Australia is more commonly associated with beaches and surfer dudes, its cities are impressive, too. Sydney gives Manhattan a run for its money, alright. 11. Sydney Opera HouseA trip to Sydney would not be complete without seeing the Sydney Opera House, undoubtedly one of the international symbols of Australia. You could simply get a snap of the famous sails, take in an opera, or watch the fireworks from a boat in Sydney Harbour at midnight on New Year’s Eve. 29. Katherine GorgeKatherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park, is an ideal stop-off on an outback holiday. It’s full of flora, fauna and wildlife, and backs onto the River Katherine. 30. Sugar WharfPopular with wedding parties, Sugar Wharf is a picture-perfect waterside location in POrt Douglas. 16.

Bombo QuarryThis impressive geological site in New South Wales offers stunning views of the area, and is a good place for hikers and keen Instagrammers alike. 28. Cable Beach Camel RideWhy walk when you can camel? The camel safaris are a popular pass time on Cable Beach, and rides often allow you to take in the picturesque sunset. 27.

Western Australia has got some absolute stunners, like the well-named Holiday Beach, the surprisingly-named talc-and-turquoise Thistle Cove and well-trodden, much-loved Cottesloe, although it’s not all beach, beach, beach – some stretches of the coast are dramatically rugged. 6. The Great Barrier ReefA wonder of the natural world, the Great Barrier Reef offers you a whole other world if you don flippers and snorkel. The Coral Sea is one of the diving highlights in the world, and whilst diving snobs might mutter about it being overrun with tourists out of Cairns, if you venture further afield then the diving is world-class. 22. Surfers ParadiseCatch a wave and you’re sitting on top of the world (here, in Queensland). This area has some of the best beaches in Australia, and as you can tell from the name, is a hit with surfers from all over. 18. Cape PeronThis picturesque headland is noted for having protected beaches, limestone cliffs, reefs and panoramic views. Well, just look at it. 20. Walking through the airWith its vast natural resources, there’s plenty to explore in Australia. This treetop walk in Weeaproinah is just one example. 10. Rod Laver Arena, MelbourneLovers of the sound of leather and willow will argue that Australia’s most iconic sporting arena is the SCG or the WACCA, but tennis fans would nominate the imposing Rod Laver Arena – the epicentre of the Australian Open, one of the game’s Grand Slam events, held at Melbourne Park each January. 9. The OutbackProbably the name of an Australian-themed bar near you, the Outback is a huge (and we mean huge), remote, sparsely-populated area of the middle of Australia. The Outback boasts unusual attractions that are, ahem, out of this world: meteor craters, like Gosses Bluff, while the MacDonnell Ranges are an intrepid walker’s delight. 19. Alpha, Queensland OutbackThis shot of cattle herders on the outback shows how traditional farming methods are still adhered to in the region.last_img read more

predecessor” President Buhari told the monarch “After General Murtala Mohammed was assassinated I was moved from the North East as governor to Ministry of Petroleum Your father was then Permanent Secretary My relationship with him was very strong I have lost count of the number of visits to his palace as Oba” Buhari added The President appreciated the efforts of the late Oba for stabilising the Delta region of the country because of his firmness as well as the immediate past governor of Edo State Mr Adams Oshiomhole for stabilising the state He also commended Oba Ewuare II for following the footsteps of his predecessor while reiterating his support for the traditional institution “I know and respect the traditional institution I try as much as possible to understand why the authors of our Constitution kept silent about their role – that was probably the best thing way to preserve their neutrality” he said “ Your Royal Majesty you are safe where you are” Buhari added He further commended the stabilising roles that the Eweka Dynasty of Benin Kingdom had been playing in the affairs of the country According to him Nigerians have reasons to be proud of the stabilising roles Benin chiefs had played right from the colonial era to the current period not only in the Delta region but the entire country In his remarks the traditional ruler commended President Buhari for the way he has been handling security matters in the country Oba Ewuare’s delegation was made up of chiefs from other parts of Edo State including the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress John Odigie-Oyegun The Mdzough u Tiv the apex sociocultural organization of Tiv community has blasted the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris over his comment on the recent attack on Benue communities where several persons were killed Idris had while reacting to the attacks on Logo and Guma LGAs of the state described it as ‘mere communal clash’ Reacting to the police boss claim Chief Edward Ujege President General of the group said statement was mockery on the bereaved communities Ujege in a statement said there was no crisis on ground hitherto the attack He said “We find the statement made by the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris that the renewed killings of innocent people in Benue State is a result of ‘communal clashes’ “The statement is not only misleading but also makes mockery of the souls of children pregnant women old men and youths of the state murdered in cold blood by armed Fulani herdsmen in the last few days “The facts on the ground do not indicate clash between any two groups within Benue State but rather a well planned and foretold unprovoked invasion by a group that had vowed to resist the anti-open grazing law “It can be recalled that when the Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom signed the law on May 22nd 2017 officials of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore came out publicly to state that they would mobilize and invade the state to resist the law “They said the crisis in Benue was a struggle for natural resources since their coming to the Benue Valley predated the present inhabitants This position was widely published by the media across the globe “Moreover the Benue State Governor the Speaker of the State Assembly as well as we leaders of socio-cultural organizations in the state wrote several letters about the threats to the Presidency the Inspector General of Police and all the relevant security agencies calling for the arrest of leaders of the association who made the threat This development was also widely publicised “As the chief police officer in the country we expected the Inspector General to have a better grasp of the facts of the attacks on Benue people carried out by rampaging Fulani herdsmen from this background “If he was quoted correctly we hope his comments are not part of the grand strategy to misinform Nigerians about the true identities of those behind the recent killing of Benue people in Logo and Guma Local Government Areas “Perhaps one pertinent question to ask the Inspector General is which communities in Benue State were involved in the clashes “The Nigerian Police is currently prosecuting six herdsmen in Benue State who are suspected to be among perpetrators of the recent killings It is therefore a contradiction that the Inspector General chose to absolve the herdsmen of culpability in the same crime for which they are being prosecuted by the police “It is also contradictory that the Inspector General of Police has ordered ongoing investigation into the killings but has jumped to the conclusion that the situation is communal crisis “We restate our call on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security agencies to arrest and prosecute the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Abdullahi Bello Bodejo and the group’s National Secretary Saleh Alhassan who had repeatedly threatened to mobilize their members across the country to resist implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law enacted by Benue State “With his comments the Inspector General of Police seems to be in agreement with the conspiracy of the Fulani leaders and their position about the crisis in Benue State “However Benue people are law-abiding and have remained so even in the face of frequent unprovoked attacks by Fulani herdsmen We therefore expect the Inspector General of Police to in the spirit of peace-building retract the statement to correct the wrong impression it has created”President Muhammadu Buhari has described the immediate past Oba of Benin Dean, Prairie Public is concerned cuts could force them to end programs or even take them off the air.
