Cox/Getty Images)Former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has announced his transfer destination.After sticking with the Tide for longer than anyone thought he would, Hurts played a pivotal role in getting Alabama to the national title game against Clemson when he led to the team to a comeback in the SEC title game after Tua Tagovailoa’s injury.Now, he’s headed elsewhere.On Wednesday afternoon, Hurts revealed he’s taking his talents to Norman. In a piece written for The Player’s Tribune, Hurts announced he’s transferring to Oklahoma.But now it’s also time for me to start a new chapter in my story. I’ve decided to take my talents to the University of Oklahoma, where I will continue my development as both a quarterback and as a student. I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity, and I’m excited for the journey ahead.After graduating from Alabama, Hurts will be immediately eligible to play for the Sooners in 2019.With Hurts on his way to Oklahoma, the story the college football world needs is a rematch between Oklahoma and Alabama in the College Football Playoff with Jalen Hurts leading the Sooners against his former team.Lincoln Riley turned his past two quarterbacks in Heisman Trophy-winners. We’ll have to wait and see if Hurts can do the same.last_img read more

Second Cup sets its sight on converting some coffee shops into pot

first_imgTORONTO – Second Cup wants to serve up a different kind of buzz by converting some of its coffee shops into cannabis dispensaries and, when legal, pot lounges.Shares in the Canadian restaurant operator rose as much as 31 per cent before closing up 28.73 per cent at $3.54 on Thursday after it announced that it has signed an agreement with marijuana clinic operator National Access Cannabis to develop and operate a network of recreational pot stores.However, neither currently has a licence to sell marijuana, so the deal is contingent on approval from the government, as well as from franchisees and landlords.If and when regulations allow, the two companies also want to open coffee shops for cannabis consumption, said Second Cup’s board chairman Michael Bregman.“(Cannabis) is going to be an awfully big business in Canada, and we have some amazing locations,” he said in an interview Thursday. “I wish I knew now in what form we would be pursuing and participating. We’re just trying to position ourselves so we can participate as the opportunities arise and the legislation is formed.”Second Cup, once a pioneer in the world of upscale coffee, has been struggling to find its place in an increasingly competitive cafe market and has been losing market share to more dominant players, including Starbucks and Tim Hortons, as well as to increasingly popular independent craft purveyors of java. Canada’s second-largest specialty coffee retailer reported adjusted net income of just $110,000 for fiscal 2017.And so, the coffee chain, like many other Canadian companies, is jumping in to grab a piece of the lucrative marijuana market.The companies said in a joint release Thursday that the NAC-branded stores would initially be located across Western Canada, with plans to expand to additional provinces where legally permissible. NAC, which operates a network of marijuana patient advisory clinics, will apply for licenses to dispense cannabis products and work with Second Cup and applicable franchisees to construct stores. NAC has signed marijuana supply agreements with CannaRoyalty Corp. and others.Canada is preparing for the legalization of recreational marijuana later this year, but the distribution model for pot differs widely between provinces.Private operators will be able to sell marijuana, after obtaining the appropriate licenses, in provinces including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. NAC is already among the organizations selected by Manitoba’s government to handle retail sales of recreational pot once legal.Provinces such as Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, however, will sell marijuana in outlets run by the provincial liquor commissions.Retailers, pharmacies and licensed cannabis producers are already positioning themselves for the green rush.Shoppers Drug Mart’s parent company, Loblaw Companies Ltd., has applied for a license to dispense medical marijuana, and has signed supply agreements with pot producers.And in February, licensed producer Aurora Cannabis Inc. signed a $103.5-million deal to buy a minority stake in Liquor Stores N.A. Ltd, which plans to launch a brand of cannabis stores.Meanwhile, many provinces and territories have said they are restricting the consumption of cannabis to privately owned residences but some jurisdictions such as Ontario are soliciting feedback on whether to allow for licensed cannabis consumption lounges.NAC chief executive Mark Goliger said in an interview Thursday that “the minute that that becomes a legal option, we will be first in line.”While the details of those consumption lounges would depend largely on regulations, he described them as “Amsterdam, with Canadian conservativeness attached to it.”“We do feel that cannabis lounges are a logical next step … As most provinces are making it very restrictive as to where people can actually consume in public,” Goliger said.Shares of NAC on the TSX Venture Exchange were up as much as 14 per cent to $1.04 on Thursday after the announcement.Bregman said Second Cup got the idea to branch out into pot after being approached by several cannabis producers. The coffee chain “felt comfortable” with NAC as a partner, and signed a deal on Wednesday night, he added.As well, NAC has issued to Second Cup warrants to purchase 5,000,000 common shares of the company, at an exercise price of 91 cents per share. The warrants expire in April 2023.It’s unclear how many stores — which will be under a new brand developed by NAC, according to Goliger — will be ready by legalization, expected later this year. The companies plan to submit as many as 20 applications for licenses to the Alberta government, and see how many get approved, said Bregman.Conversion of any Second Cup cafes to dispensaries will be conditional on obtaining a license from provincial regulators as well as the approval of the applicable franchisee and landlord. Store ownership will be split 50/50 between the two companies, or the two parties would split the balance if a franchisee is included, he added.Second Cup’s Bregman said the coffee chain’s efforts to revamp are paying off, but it has a long way to go. Second Cup plans to continue expanding its network of coffee shops across Canada as it develops a network of cannabis dispensaries with “compelling” economics, he added.“This is an opportunity where there is plenty of potential upside and no real downside,” said Bregman. “This can’t hurt the company, can’t hurt the franchisees. But can help a lot if things go well.”Companies in this story: (TSX:SCU, TSXV:NAC)Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version erroneously referred to NAC as a private firm.last_img read more

US trade deficit falls to 342 billion in June lowest since late

US trade deficit falls to $34.2 billion in June, lowest since late 2009, as exports hit record AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Aug 6, 2013 8:40 am MDT WASHINGTON – The U.S. trade deficit narrowed sharply in June to its lowest level in more than 3 1/2 years. Exports rose to all-time high and imports declined, signs that economic growth could be stronger than previously thought.The Commerce Department said Tuesday that the June deficit fell 22.4 per cent to $34.2 billion. That’s the lowest since October 2009 and down from May’s imbalance of $44.1 billion, which was revised lower.Exports rose 2.2 per cent to $191.2 billion in June. U.S. companies shipped more aircraft engines, telecommunications equipment, heavy machinery and farm goods.Imports dropped 2.5 per cent to $225.4 billion. Oil imports declined to the lowest level in more than two years.A smaller trade deficit lifts growth because it means consumers and businesses are spending less on foreign goods than companies are taking in from overseas sales. The steep decline in the June deficit could lead the government to revise its growth estimate for the April-June quarter a little higher.Last week the government said the economy grew at a lacklustre annual rate of 1.7 per cent in the second quarter, in part because trade cut nearly a full percentage point from growth. But the government estimated the June trade figures when calculating its first read on economic growth. The government will offer a more complete estimate for second quarter growth on Aug. 29. That will include June’s upbeat trade figures.Pierre Ellis, an economist at Decision Economics, said the trade data could add 0.2 percentage point to 0.5 percentage point to growth. He said the estimate could be on the lower end if businesses held lower stockpiles in June after shipping more goods.Many economists think overall economic growth has started to rebound in the July-September quarter. Some say growth could near a 3 per cent annual rate. A key reason is that several export markets, including Europe, are seeing improvement.For June, U.S. exports to the 27-nation European Union rose 1.5 per cent. That helped shrink the deficit with the region to $7.1 billion.The deficit with China fell 4.3 per cent to $26.6 billion. Through the first six months of this year, the imbalance with China is running 1.9 per cent above the same period a year ago.America’s deficit with Japan rose 2.2 per cent to $5.5 billion in June. The imbalance with Canada dropped 13.7 per cent to $1.6 billion. The deficit with Mexico fell 9.6 per cent to $4.8 billion in June.U.S. factories are already starting to show more strength after slumping earlier this year, helped by increases in business spending and less drag from government cuts.Activity at U.S. factories increased in July at the fastest pace in two years in July, according to the Institute for Supply Management’s closely watched manufacturing index.And U.S. factories added 6,000 jobs in July, the Labor Department said Friday. That was the first month of manufacturing job growth since February. read more

UN Latin America commission forecasts low but positive growth for region in

The Economic Survey analyzes policy challenges to stimulate investment and growth, indicating that in the process of achieving indebtedness and fiscal balance equilibrium, public investment must not be neglected. In that sense, separating the handling of investment spending and current spending would help eliminate the bias against investment in processes of public spending adjustments. It also notes the importance of strengthening increased public revenue through tax structure changes, with the establishment of more direct taxes; fortifying tax administrations; and reducing evasion and avoidance. According to the report, as in prior years, different growth dynamics are projected among countries and sub-regions. While the gross domestic product (GDP) of South America is expected to grow 0.6 per cent this year, the economies of Central America and Mexico are seen expanding 2.5 on per cent on average, thanks to an increase in remittances income and improved growth expectations for its main trading partner, the United States. Meanwhile, 1.2 per cent growth is forecast for English- and Dutch-speaking Caribbean economies, following a -0.8 per cent contraction in 2016. According to ECLAC, some positive factors affecting the region’s performance this year include the moderate recovery of the global economy, which will end 2017 with 2.7 per cent growth, three-tenths of a percentage point higher than in 2016; a slight 2.4 per cent international trade volume rebound; and increased price levels for basic products, which are forecast to be 12 per cent higher on average than last year. At the same time, on spending, a narrow improvement in investment and greater dynamism in private consumption are being observed. Finally, the 2017 regional account balance is expected to remain similar to that of 2016, around -1.9 per cent of GDP, although with improved trade and an increase in exports, which is forecast at 8 per cent for the entire year. Alicia Bárcena, Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), presents the Economic Survey of Latin America and the Caribbean 2017. Photo: Carlos Vera/ECLAC The Economic Survey of Latin America and the Caribbean 2017 foresees that, after two years of contraction, nearly all countries in the region will experience, on average, 1.1 per cent positive growth rates in 2017 – except for Venezuela, whose gross domestic product (GDP) is seen falling -7.2 per cent; and Saint Lucia and Suriname, which is forecast to contract -0.2 per cent. “To resume medium- and long-term growth, countercyclical policies are needed that not only focus on reducing the cycle’s fluctuations, but also on modifying those specific characteristics that negatively influence growth and the productive structure of countries in the region,” said Alicia Bárcena, Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), during a press conference in Santiago where the document was presented. The UN body’s annual report underscores the importance of macroeconomic policies to invigorate long-term growth and move toward the necessary structural change in the region’s economies. “This means moving toward countercyclical frameworks for fiscal policy that defend and promote public and private investment. This involves revising fiscal rules so they continue to serve as pro-stability instruments, but also as pro-investment. This fiscal framework must be accompanied by a financial policy aimed at credit stabilization and a monetary policy that supports investment growth and goes beyond instruments such as the interest rate,” she explained. read more

With the Bills starting the comically ineffective Nathan Peterman at QB, it’s difficult to judge how much we really learned about the Ravens in the blowout. But it had to be encouraging for Baltimore fans to see Joe Flacco play well, regardless of the opponent. At home against Buffalo, Flacco generated 119 more adjusted net yards than a generic backup-level quarterback would have (aka yards above backup QB, or YABQ), which ranked sixth among all signal-callers in Week 1 — behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, Philip Rivers and Aaron Rodgers.In terms of YABQ, this game also represented the third-best that Flacco has enjoyed since Week 3 of the 2015 season, which helps underscore how bad Flacco has been in recent years. For instance, last season the Ravens had the third-worst quarterbacking production of any team in the league, with Flacco’s individual metrics in a three-year tailspin. For a team that featured one of the NFL’s best defenses last season, any spark that Flacco and the offense can provide could go a long way toward sending Baltimore back to the playoffs for the first time since 2014. And in their first test against the overmatched Bills, Flacco and the revamped Ravens receiving corps passed with flying colors.A somewhat similar narrative is unfolding in Cincinnati. With much-maligned QB Andy Dalton embarking on his eighth season as the Bengals’ starter (and coach Marvin Lewis back for an astonishing 16th year on the team’s sidelines), Cincy went into Indianapolis and beat Andrew Luck and the Colts thanks to solid passing and rushing, plus timely defensive plays late in the game. Aside from maybe Flacco, few quarterbacks in the league needed to start the season on the right foot more than Dalton, who infamously has never won a playoff game during his time in the Queen City.A win over Baltimore on Thursday won’t change that — perhaps surprisingly, Dalton has beaten the Ravens more often than not anyway — but it would help quiet the doubts that Dalton’s best days are behind him. Since he finished third in the league in YABQ in 2015 (despite suffering a season-ending injury that December), he slipped to 11th in 2016 and 21st in 2017, and the Bengals didn’t make the playoffs either year. With a defense that projects to be mediocre at best, Cincinnati needs Dalton to reverse that slide in order to have any shot at the postseason — and probably to have any chance at salvaging the Dalton/Lewis era.The great irony of the Bengals is that their quarterbacking has always been just good enough to come up short. While the Ravens have won two Super Bowls behind a couple of QBs (Flacco and Trent Dilfer) who were below-average passers for their careers, Cincinnati has consistently had average-to-good passing over the years, aside from a few notable exceptions. Just look back at the Bengals’ history of primary quarterbacks: 40 of their 47 seasons since 1972 have been led by five quarterbacks — Ken Anderson, Boomer Esiason, Jeff Blake, Carson Palmer and Dalton. Although none is in the Hall of Fame (Anderson’s case is a point of contentious debate), each rates as average or better in his career according to’s advanced passing index.That’s why, from the 1970 AFL-NFL merger until the present day, no team has gotten more seasons of “competent” (above-backup level) quarterbacking than the Bengals have: PICKWIN PROB.PICKWIN PROB.ResultREADERS’ NET points OUR PREDICTION (ELO)READERS’ PREDICTION DAL33.58.1NYG6.44.112.2 3Miami4125,4802 8Philadelphia3816,0041 PIT53.812.1KC74.89.922.0 JAX58JAX62JAX 20, NYG 15+0.7– SEA54SEA52DEN 27, SEA 24+0.0 ARI61ARI55WSH 24, ARI 6+4.8– MIN76MIN71MIN 24, SF 16-5.3– *Average change is weighted by the likelihood of a win or loss.

Along with it, we also brought back a popular feature from last season — a prediction game that lets you test your football smarts against our model (and thousands of fellow readers).

So it probably seems too early to be discussing playoff implications — a conversation that’s usually on hold until Thanksgiving. But in a 16-game schedule, the margins are small, and each game has a big effect on the postseason picture. Week 2 is no different — after all, the season will be 12.5 percent over after Monday night.Thursday’s AFC North tilt between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens is one of those early season contests that could end up having real postseason consequences. In fact, our NFL Elo prediction model considers it the most important game of Week 2. (Remember when Thursday Night Football was a place to stash the NFL’s unwanted matchups?) With a win, each team’s chances of making the playoffs would jump by about 15 percentage points, while the loser would see a commensurate decline. Especially after the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers stumbled out of the gate without star RB Le’Veon Bell, the chance to jump out to a 2-0 start is a big opportunity for both Baltimore and Cincy. The Bengals always get competent QB play — but no ringsMost seasons with positive yards above backup quarterback (YABQ) for NFL franchises, 1970-2017 The scoring system is nonlinear, so readers’ average points don’t necessarily match the number of points that would be given to the average reader prediction.

This is especially surprising because Week 1 would seem to be the moment of the season when human pickers have the greatest edge on the algorithm. In our NFL preview, I noted that Elo can get caught a little flat-footed early in the season because it doesn’t know about all the roster and coaching moves that transpired over the summer. Theoretically, that should have made it as unprepared for Week 1 as Matt Patricia’s Detroit Lions … but unlike the Lions, Elo proved the naysayers (i.e., me) wrong.Elo’s biggest win was in not dismissing the Buccaneers completely. While our readers gave the home Saints a better than 80 percent chance of winning, the model was more cautious, and it ended up paying off when Tampa (and backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick) dropped 48 points on New Orleans. Elo also picked up credit for calling the Dolphins’ protracted win over the Titans and for once again showing faith in the Eagles (just like in last year’s playoffs).If the readers did have a crowning moment in Week 1, though, it was for calling the Rams’ big win over the Raiders in Oakland on Monday night. Elo thought the game was a pick ’em, but the readers knew better, giving L.A. a 68 percent chance of spoiling Jon Gruden’s return to the sidelines.Thanks to everyone who played on opening week, and remember that it’s not too late to start, even if you missed Week 1.

Football Ohio State needs Mike Weber to be a toptier running back

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer sees Mike Weber having a larger impact in 2017. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing EditorCHICAGO — The lack of offense consistently shown in the 2016 season prompted Ohio State coach Urban Meyer to make staff changes. One of the most obvious weaknesses on the offense was the passing game, but that doesn’t leave other offensive players off the hook.As a first-year starter, then-redshirt freshman Mike Weber became only the third freshman running back in program history to rush for more than 1,000 yards. In year two, Meyer said Weber has to take the next step.“I do think he can (be a premier running back), and we need that,” Meyer said. “That’s a must. That’s a must. And it’s time.”Meyer brought in Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson and former San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Ryan Day to co-coordinate the offense and revitalize the passing game after finishing sixth in the Big Ten in passing offense. It was a move that had to be made following 215 total yards in an embarrassing loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.The development of the wide receivers for 2017 is still a major concern, considering the Buckeyes’ top three receivers last season graduated or are in the NFL. But after a successful first season, Weber’s expected contributions to the offense could ease some pressure on the wide receivers.“I don’t think (Weber) was a premier back last year, I thought he was good,” Meyer said. “And (redshirt senior quarterback) J.T. (Barrett) needs him to be a premier back. You want to be a great quarterback, have a premier running back right next to you. Have some premier receivers out there too. It’s time.”The combination of a stellar receiving corps and a running back who could only be stopped by a freight train is part of the formula that turned a young 2014 Ohio State team into national champions.Barrett, the 2016 Big Ten Quarterback of the Year, had his best season as a redshirt freshman in 2014 with a dynamic offensive play-caller in Tom Herman. He also had arguably the best running back in the country in Ezekiel Elliott.Meyer said he believes Wilson and Day coaching the offense will reincarnate that side of the ball into what it was during the 2014 season when the offense averaged nearly 510 yards per game, compared to 460 yards per contest last season.Weber, who scored nine times as a redshirt freshman, doesn’t need to be Elliott, but the shoestring tackles he consistently suffered and quiet games he had against tougher competition can’t happen if Ohio State wants to get over the hump in 2017.Meyer said the Detroit native has already taken steps in workouts and in the locker room.“He didn’t have the breakaway speed. He needs to pick up his feet,” Meyer said. “I want to say he’s lost seven pounds. He’s legitimate fast now. He wasn’t fast. He wasn’t mature. He’s very mature right now. “I’m hoping you guys see a different back. And he was good, but he wasn’t premier.”Running back pictureFreshman running back J.K. Dobbins was the No. 2 running back on the depth chart throughout spring camp as an early-enrollee freshman. Meyer said he’s earned his way onto the field with his play in the spring and continued improvement in offseason workouts.“He’s already proven the fact that he’s going to play,” he said.Meyer listed the running back depth chart as follows: Weber, Dobbins, redshirt sophomore Antonio Williams, sophomore Demario McCall and redshirt junior Parris Campbell, who is projected to start at H-back. read more

Kenny We have failed too many children

first_imgCHILD ABUSE HAS not gone away, and we have failed too many children in Ireland, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said.He made the comment at the 13th European Regional International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect Conference on the issues of child abuse and neglect last night.He said that over the past decade, country after country across the globe have found themselves having to face-up to scandals of child abuse, many of which have been institutional.He said in Ireland, since the 1980’s, we have nearly 20 major reports from investigations. Though Kenny said “we may even have said something like ‘never again’”, he added:But for all that we still find ourselves facing the awful truth. Child abuse hasn’t gone away. It doesn’t go away. It is the lingering dark stain on the rich fabric of our humanity. It is an evil which persists.NeglectThe Taoiseach also spoke of neglect, saying it “is now the most common type of abuse of children”.“We have had too many reports of child protection failings: Failings by society. Failings by the State. Failings by services,” said Kenny. “We have failed far too many children, huge numbers of our youngest and most vulnerable. We know this and we know we cannot just do better, we must do our best.”He said that as Taoiseach, he has made it his business to “do things better for our children”, mentioning the establishment of a Minister for Children, and the Children’s referendum.“Overall, we were determined to make changes so that those with the smallest voices would have their say,” said Kenny. “However, when we looked at how the state provides child and family services it was clear that here change wasn’t an option. In this case only transformation would do.”He said that work is underway to finalise the Children First bill. According to the Taoiseach, the increased awareness of Children First has already resulted in an increase of almost 25 per cent in referrals to the child protection services.He said that the pilot of the national Audit of Neglect Cases published in June, “shows we are also seeing greater recognition and reporting of neglect”.However, the increase in referrals “has put a huge strain on services already under pressure”, said Kenny, saying Minister Fitzgerald is working hard to address this.Minister Fitzgerald has ensured legislation is before the Dáil to establish for the first time a single, dedicated Child and Family Agency.Public service reform being undertaken by this Government involves 4,000 staff across three existing agencies and a budget of nearly €600 million, said Kenny.Kenny also outlined other positive changes the government has brought in, including new standards for child protection, regulations to facilitate reporting for the first time from in-camera court proceedings on child welfare and protection.The Taoiseach said that he firmly believes that these service reforms, when fully implemented, coupled with the Child First guidelines and legislation along with the Child and Family Agency “will leave a lasting legacy”.He concluded:though we have a long way to go to get child services to where we want them to be, we have done the most important thing of all – we have made the start to reform transform.Read: Action taken on Mayo foster service over safety concerns>last_img read more

GrandeBretagne des prisonniers menaçent leurs victimes sur Facebook

first_imgGrande-Bretagne: des prisonniers menaçent leurs victimes sur FacebookDepuis deux ans, environ 350 prisonniers anglais, considérés comme violents, sont suspecté d’avoir eu accès au réseau social Facebook. L’information, confirmée par le ministre de la Justice britannique, pourrait en réalité concerner beaucoup plus de personnes incarcérée, selon le Daily Telegraph. L’usage d’Internet est strictement interdit en prison. Mais en réalité, les prisonniers ont accès au réseau social via des smartphones, introduits illégalement dans les prisons. Les délinquants incarcérés profitent ensuite de cet accès à Internet pour menacer leurs victimes ou la famille de leurs victimes.Javed Khan, membre de Victim Support affirme que des “prisonniers qui utilisent Facebook depuis la prison, cela fait passer leur punition pour une blague”.Les prisonniers utilisent Facebook, non seulement pour intimider les victimes et les témoins mais aussi pour maintenir leurs empires criminels, assure le Daily Mail.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ce serait le cas de Colin Gunn, un des délinquants les plus dangereux d’Angleterre. Il y a deux ans, il aurait eu accès à Facebook pendant plus de deux mois, menaçant à loisir ses ennemis. Dans un de ses posts, Colin Gunn a écrit: “Un jour, je sortirai de prison et je suis impatient de lire la peur dans le regard de certaines personnes lorsqu’ils me verront dehors”. Le problème a commencé à s’ébruiter après qu’une requête Freedom of Information ait été déposée. Cette dernière a révélé que plus de 140 profils avaient été supprimés entre juillet 2009 et juin 2010, car ils étaient utilisés par des prisonniers pour terroriser leurs victimes alors qu’ils purgeaient leurs peines. Depuis juillet 2010, 199 nouveaux profils ont été fermés. L’affaire soulève de sérieuses questions quant aux problèmes liés à la sécurité dans les prisons britanniques. Pratiquement tous les profils de criminels incarcérés en Grande-Bretagne ont été supprimés depuis le début des investigations.En réponse à ce problème, un membre des services carcéraux britanniques a annoncé que “tout prisonnier pris en possession illicite d’un téléphone portable ou tout autre objet de contrebande, sera puni en conséquence par la prison”. De son côté, Facebook a précisé qui si “certains contenus violent notre politique, nous les supprimerons radicalement”. Le 1 février 2012 à 09:06 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

At Kashmere High Principals Plan To Save Struggling School Starts With Consistency

first_imgLaura Isensee/Houston Public MediaTeachers and administrators at Kashmere High are focused on turning the school around this year and getting off of the state’s list of struggling schools.At Kashmere High, Principal Reginald Bush starts his day with the kind of discipline usually seen in the military. He wakes up at 4:15 a.m. Just after 5 a.m., he’s hopped on a conference call with one of his lead administrators. By mid-morning, he checks on students as he strides through the main hallway, which is bright and clean with fresh paint.It’s his first year as principal of Kashmere High and Bush has a big task: Save the historically black school from the threat of being closed by the state. Bush is laser-focused on that goal with a kind of steely optimism.“Consistency, consistency is the big piece,” Bush said in an interview. “I think if we remain consistent, with the momentum that we have, there’s no doubt in our mind that Kashmere will receive distinctions this year.”That would mean Kashmere High wouldn’t just pass the state’s accountability system, which is largely based on state test scores. It would pass with high marks. If successful, that would mark a major turnaround. For nine years straight, Kashmere High School in Northeast Houston has been on the state’s list of failing schools. That’s the longest for any school in Texas.So, the big question this year is: Will they break the streak and win state approval? The answer matters a lot. If they don’t, the Texas Education Commissioner could close the school — or even replace Houston’s entire school board. Kashmere High is one of four struggling schools in the Houston Independent School District that could trigger a state takeover of the largest district in Texas, under the law known as HB 1842.READ: Here’s what you need to know about a potential state takeover of Houston schoolsLaura Isensee/Houston Public MediaThis is Reginald Bush’s first year as principal at Kashmere High. He previously led Kashmere Gardens Elementary, which beat the odds and got off the state’s watch-list.Consistency is just one part of Bush’s strategy. And he’s optimistic because his students are scoring better on practice tests in English, science and social studies.“Everything is pretty much still moving, the needle is still moving,” he said. “We’re watching the growth of kids.”Bush doesn’t want his team or students to get distracted by naysayers.“If you’re not in the work, you’re in the way,” he said. “And so, we encourage people —  if they really want to make this happen — they will come in and jump in the work, because the more and more we say negative things, those things do get in the way.” Listen 00:00 /04:00 Here are other strategies Bush and his team are laser-focused on to make the state’s grade:Student engagement: Bush said that he wants more students to be involved in some club or activity on campus. When he started, less than 20 percent were involved. Now more than half of the school’s 700 students have some activity. They’ve started new clubs to foster that — additional dance teams, a nutrition group and cooking club. Student involvement may not be directly counted by the state’s accountability system, but Bush maintains that it’s vital. He explained that it boosts attendance, giving students a reason to come to school and giving teachers a greater chance to reach them. “Because when students are engaged on a daily basis, they begin to take ownership. They begin to take ownership of their lessons. They begin to take ownership of their destiny,” he said.Focus on English-language learners: While Kashmere High is a historically black school, over 10 percent of students are learning English as a second language. Bush said that they’ve brought in tutors to work with these students. If they improve, that will help Kashmere High close the gap. “Making sure students grow, that’s the goal,” he said.Looking beyond high school: Bush is trying to emphasize what happens after high school. That means more college-prep courses, like Advanced Placement, in the master schedule; more students working towards industry jobs certifications; or enlisting in the military. That helps Kashmere High build points in the state’s accountability system.Revamped reading team: Bush said that he didn’t want to replace a lot of Kashmere’s teaching staff. Instead, he wanted to give them more support — with specialists and professional development. The English Language Arts department highlights that, which now has a 10-member team of expert coaches and interventionists. Shundra Harris-Mosley leads the team. In the morning, she and her team members check in on English classes, to see how things are going. Then, they confer in her office, where most of the walls are covered with posters with hand-written notes. Some display the dates for the upcoming state exams underneath a picture of a school for freed slaves. Behind her desk, there’s a poster of Martin Luther King, Jr. After they confer, they walk through classes again in the afternoon. It’s constant monitoring to make sure everyone is on track. “That is one of our biggest pieces, getting the right help, getting the right people,” Harris-Mosley said.Laura Isensee/Houston Public MediaShundra Harris-Mosley works with teacher coaches on what they’ve observed in English classrooms during the morning.Kashmere alum and parent, Christopher Ray, said that he’s seen a shift since his daughter enrolled as a freshman at the school. She’s now a junior, active in multiple groups from dance to Junior ROTC and planning on college at Prairie View A&M University or Texas Southern. She’s about the 25th member of their extended family to be a Fighting Ram. And Ray doesn’t want her to be the last.“I have hopes and dreams that they will (pass),” Ray said. “The way it’s projected and was told to me, it seems like they will but you know it remains to be seen.”He said that a lot of things make the school great, starting with an alumni base that’s passionate to see the historically black school thrive. Then there are dedicated teachers, he said, some of whom were on campus when he was a student in the early 1990s. Ray said that he knows they have his back, now that his daughter is there. Still, Ray said that he sees other ways Kashmere High can improve. One is to bring back vocational programs, such as cosmetology and auto shop. Another is stable leadership. Kashmere High has had four principals in eight years, according to Houston school records.“We have to have stability — right now,” Ray said. “Whatever the state is going to decide what they’re going to decide. But, ultimately, it has to be a decision that’s going to enhance — not to tear down, not to hinder.”For some, passing the state’s accountability standard is just the first hurdle. Jasmine Jenkins, who leads the advocacy group Houstonians for Great Public Schools, said that she’ll be surprised if they don’t meet that bar. Her group has been canvassing parents and students in the dismissal line on campus. They’ve heard positive reaction about an increase in enrollment and drop in fights — but also an interest in more challenging classes.“We can’t claim success for any of our schools until the district reaches a much better rate of students who are not just prepared for college and career, but who are pursuing credentials after high school,” Jenkins said.center_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Sharelast_img read more

Childhood stress may make women gain weight

first_imgChildhood stress may have a bigger influence on weight gain by women than stress during adulthood, says a study.Interestingly, the study that appeared online in the journal Social Science & Medicine found that neither childhood nor adult stress was associated with weight gain for men. “These findings add to our understanding of how childhood stress is a more important driver of long term weight gain than adult stress, and how such processes differ for men and women,” said one of the researchers Hui Liu, associate professor of sociology at Michigan State University in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The researchers analysed data from a survey of 3,617 people (2,259 women and 1,358 men) who were interviewed four times in a 15-year period.Childhood stress was measured on a range of family-related stressors that occurred at age 16 or younger such as economic hardship, divorce, at least one parent with mental health problem and never knowing one’s father.Adult stress included such factors as job loss, death of a significant other and parental and care-provider stress. The researchers found that women who experienced higher levels of childhood stress gained weight more rapidly than women who experienced less childhood stress. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“Change in body mass is a process that unfolds throughout life and childhood may be a critical period for establishing patterns that have a long term impact on women’s weight over time,” Liu said.“Men and women respond to stress differently. It may be possible that women eat more to cope with stress, whereas men are more likely to engage in less weight-related strategies such as withdrawing or drinking alcohol,” Liu added.last_img read more

Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts expands further in Saudi Arabia

first_imgMövenpick Hotels & ResortsMövenpick Hotels and Resorts expands further in Saudi Arabia with new project in Wa’ad Al Shamal CityMövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced that it has entered into a management agreement with Karan Gulf Services, for a new hotel within Saudi Arabia’s Wa’ad Al Shamal industrial city. The 237-room hotel is planned as the largest hotel project within Wa’ad Al Shamal City, as well as the entire northern region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.The city itself, located about 30 kilometres from Turaif is being developed by Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden) and covers 450 square kilometres in Saudi Arabia’s Northern Frontier. It will host approximately 100,000 residents. The city will tap into the region’s significant phosphate reserves and will support and provide extensive opportunities to many upstream and downstream industries, which have already been anchored by major global players including Saudi Aramco, SABIC and SCECO. These companies will provide the infrastructure necessary to initiate the project and stimulate further activities relating to phosphate mining. The mineral industry is set to become the third pillar of the Kingdom’s economy after oil and petrochemical, in line with the country’s Vision 2030.Set to open in the second half of 2018, Mövenpick Hotel Wa’ad Al Shamal, whilst primarily targeting the corporate market, will also provide a resort feel. The property will offer three food and beverage outlets, extensive meeting and event space, male and female wellness areas as well as recreation facilities, designed to serve hotel guests, the community of Wa’ad Al Shamal and the northern region.“We are proud to have been selected as the hotel operator for this fantastic project in the region” said Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and South Asia. “We firmly support the government’s vision of economic diversification. Considering the current lack of upscale accommodation, we see the development of this hotel as strategically important to the continued growth of the city. Furthermore, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will be the first international upscale hotel in the northern region of Saudi Arabia and this new signing will consolidate our position as one of the strongest international hotel brands in the country and the Middle East.”Abdulrahman bin Fahad bin Abdul Latif al Jabr, Managing Director of Karan Gulf Services stated, “We are extremely happy to be partnering with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, in our quest to develop the northern region of the country and support the local communities. Together, we will provide approximately 100 employment opportunities to male and female Saudi Arabian nationals living close to the project. The development of this hotel will have much a wider and far-reaching positive economic impact in the northern region, and will act as a platform upon which other businesses can grow. We are also extremely grateful to Ma’aden for giving us the opportunity to develop this project in a city that is destined to change the economic profile of the entire country.”Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts already operates 11 hotels in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Five more projects in the country will be launched in the next three years. They are Mövenpick Residences Al Khobar, Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments Al Tahlia Jeddah, Mövenpick Hotel Financial District Riyadh, Mövenpick Hotel Heraa Jeddah and Mövenpick Hotel Wa’ad Al Shamal.Source = Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts – Mövenpick Hotel Wa’ad Al Shamallast_img read more
