White House foresees long economic boom where others don’t

Contrary to the views most economists, the Trump administration expects the U.S. economy to keep booming over the next decade on the strength of further tax cuts, reduced regulation and improvements to the nation’s infrastructure.The annual report from President Donald Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers forecasts that the economy will expand a brisk 3.2 per cent this year and a still-healthy 2.8 per cent a decade from now. That is much faster than the Federal Reserve’s long-run forecast of 1.9 per cent annual economic growth.The administration’s forecast hinges on an expectation that it will manage to implement further tax cuts, incentives for infrastructure improvements, new labour policies and scaled-back regulations — programs that are unlikely to gain favour with the Democratic-led House that would need to approve most of them.Josh Boak, The Associated Press read more

Vaiko calls for release of fishing boats held by Sri Lanka

Moreover, this would thwart the attempt by the Sri Lankan government to impose fines, he said. India’s MDMK general secretary Vaiko urged the Indian Central Government to take effective steps to secure the release of fishing boats from Sri Lanka, The Hindu newspaper reported.In an informal chat with reporters in Tiruchi, he said a large number of fishing boats belonging to fishermen of Rameswaram, Nagapattinam and other coastal areas of the State were under the custody of the Sri Lankan Government and this had affected the livelihood of fishermen. To a question, Vaiko said that about 49 farmers had committed suicide in various parts of the State due to crop failure.The government should announce Rs.25 lakh compensation to each victim, he added. (Colombo Gazette) There were reports that the Sri Lankan Government had planned to impose hefty fine for Indian boats fishing in the traditional waters, he said and added that the Central government should take immediate steps to secure the release of the boats. read more

Not a single child spared the mindboggling violence of Yemens war

“In Yemen today, nearly 1.2 million children continue to live in 31 active conflict zones including Hudaydah, Taizz, Hajjah and Sa’da – in areas witnessing heavy, war-related violence”, said Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa.Since the Stockholm Agreement was reached following UN-brokered consultations last December between the Yemeni Government and Houthi rebel leaders, not enough has changed for the children there, the senior agency official declared.The impact of the conflict in Yemen runs deep and has not spared a single child – UNICEF Regional DirectorEvery day since then, he said, children have been killed or injured, mostly while playing outdoors or on their way to or from school.“The impact of the conflict in Yemen runs deep and has not spared a single child”, spelled out Mr. Cappelaere. “Mind-boggling violence over the past four years, high levels of poverty, and decades of conflicts, neglect and deprivation, are putting a heavy strain on Yemeni society, tearing apart its social fabric – fundamental for any society and especially for children”. UNICEF and its humanitarian partners have stepped-up efforts to tackle the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with the World Bank and UNICEF providing 1.5 million of the country’s poorest families with emergency cash assistance, to help prevent illegal child labour practices, marriage or recruitment into rebel forces.“In 2019, UNICEF is appealing for $542 million to continue responding to the massive needs of children in Yemen,” the Regional Director said.Noting that generosity alone “will not bring an end to children’s suffering in Yemen”, he again called on all warring parties to “put an end to violence in hotspots and across all of Yemen, protect civilians, keep children out of harm’s way and allow humanitarian deliveries to children and their families wherever they are in the country.”As the international community meets in Geneva for a high-level pledging event for the humanitarian crisis on Tuesday, UNICEF appealed for “unconditional contributions to provide lifesaving assistance” to Yemen’s children and urged a “massive re-investment” in the country to help Yemeni children have the future every parent aspires to for their own children.“This is the only way that Yemen can stand back on its feet, stressed Mr. Cappelaere. “If not, Yemen will be riddled with violence and its future will hang by a thread – with disastrous consequences for children.” read more

Keep on working into old age for the good of your health

first_imgOlder people should consider working until their 70s for the good of their health, the chief medical officer will pronounce today in new advice to today’s baby boomers.Prof Dame Sally Davies will tell those aged 50 to 70 that they are better off staying in work, or else taking up new hobbies to keep physically and mentally active in retirement.The chief medical officer, who is 67, said she had no plans to retire, as she urged others to follow suit.Her annual report on the state of the public’s health will urge people not to slow down the pace of life as they hit their 60s.The report is expected to suggest that people who remain in paid employment past retirement age or involved in community and voluntary work improve their chances of staying healthier for longer.Dame Sally will say: “People are living longer than ever and so retirement presents a real opportunity for baby boomers to be more active than ever before. For many people it is a chance to take on new challenges, it is certainly not the start of a slower pace of life it once was.” Phil Collins and his tour: Not Dead Yet “Staying in work, volunteering or joining a community group can make sure people stay physically and mentally active for longer. The health benefits of this should not be underestimated.”By 2020, a third of British workers will be aged over 50, estimates show.More than three quarters of people aged between 50 and pension age are still in active employment, along with 12 per cent of those over pension age, which is 62 for women and 65 for men.The report will say that while many pensioners enjoy the benefits of retirement, in many it brings feelings of social isolation.Dame Sally has previously caused controversy with strict advice, counselling drinkers to “do as I do” and think about the risks of cancer before having a glass of wine.Last month she urged parents to stop children from helping themselves to snacks from the fridge, in a bid to tackle the obesity crisis. On Monday health watchdogs published advice, saying GPs should encourage widows and divorcees to take up singing and dancing to stave off dementia and stay physically healthy.The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) said more should be done to prevent loneliness in retirement. Collins appears in concert at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada, Saturday night, April 19, 1997 She said staying in work was one way to boost health – but that taking up new activities on retirement was another way to boost the health. Phil Collins and his tour: Not Dead YetCredit:PA Collins appears in concert at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada, Saturday night, April 19, 1997 The former Genesis drummer officially retired in 2002.center_img The guidance from Nice says family doctors should be told to offer “tailored community-based physical activity programmes” to older people most “at risk of a decline in their independence and well being”.Research suggests that social isolation increases the risk of dementia, while more active lifestyles have been shown to protect against a host of diseases and the advance of frailty.The new quality standard from Nice urges doctors to identify those – such as the recently bereaved, divorced or retired – who might lose opportunities to socialise.It also says GPs should target those who have recently had to give up driving, and those who are caring for others as those who might not be getting the chance to take part in social activities. But Collins, who has previously spoken about his battle with the bottle following a divorce fight with his third wife – with whom he later got back together – told a press conference that retirement was “a funny word”.He said: “I stopped work because I wanted to be a dad at home. As bad luck would have it, as soon as I retired, my family split up.”I didn’t have anyone to go home to. That’s why I started drinking.”But the drummer and singer said of his retirement: “I’ve changed my mind.”I’m living with my young kids. They want me to go out on the road and do my thing, and why not?” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

TRUCE IN SKOPJE Domestic RK Metalurg to travel to Spain – Červar

← Previous Story Bundesliga (Round 13): THW Kiel with last minute goal past HC Erlangen Next Story → EHF CL Round 5: RNL wait Celje PL, KIF KK in Plock! Truce in Skopje. After seven days of boycott, most of the players of RK Metalurg Skopje went back to the training process under the same person, against whom they protested – Lino Červar! Domestic players (RK Metalurg giving 13 players for the national team) will play next weekend against La Rioja in Spain, in order to avoid suspension from the EHF,  but their biggest request – Lino Červar to be sacked, isn’t fulfilled.Three rounds of negotiations were held in Skopje last Tuesday. All the players said directly to Lino Červar that they don’t want to work with him anymore, but still, at the end of the day, agreement was reached. Addition to the “new deal” in Skopje is that Lino Červar has to leave Skopje after two last matches of the EHF CL in 2014 against La Rioja, but still there is no official information about that.Nothing will be same as before. Červar’s vision to make a stronger mix of experienced players who reached the EHF CL TOP 8 twice and talented youngstars from Balkan region (Borozan, Marsenic, Djukic, Lipovina, Cindric) is collapsed. Right back Vladan Lipovina signed for HSG Wetzlar, while other promising guys are now out of contract like Vuko Borozan or Mijajlo Marsenić.Russian star Pavel Atman is still in the team, but two encounters with La Rioja could be his last in Metalurg’s t-shirt.Club’s owner Minčo Jordanov gave financial injection to the team – salary. Now, they are late three salaries.The best days of RK Metalurg are now, history… Lino CervarRK Metalurg read more

Michael Noonan refutes suggestion he acted inappropriately over Project Eagle sale

first_img Image: RollingNews.ie Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article http://jrnl.ie/3286576 Minister Michael Noonan 8,307 Views Mar 14th 2017, 1:20 PM THE MINISTER FOR Finance, Michael Noonan, has refuted the suggestion that he “acted inappropriately” with regard to an element of the sale of the Nama Northern Ireland loan book, known as Project Eagle.The Public Accounts Committee report into the sale of Project Eagle was published this afternoon and states that Nama lost €800 million in relation to the loan portfolio in four years.It declared that the sales strategy was “seriously deficient”.“Inappropriate”Noonan and Department of Finance officials held separate meetings with Cerberus representatives on the eve of the bid closing date.Project Eagle was sold to Cerberus, with the deal closing in June 2014.The committee said it considers that ”it was not procedurally appropriate for the Minister for Finance [Michael Noonan] to meet with senior Cerberus representatives the day before the Project Eagle bid closing date”. It said this could have given the perception that Cerberus was benefitting from preferential treatment.It also said that it considers that it was “not procedurally appropriate” for the Department of Finance officials to meet with Cerberus representatives in the days leading up to the Project Eagle bid closing date.Again, it said this could have given the perception that Cerberus was benefitting from preferential treatment.Timeline: The seismic controversy over the Project Eagle land sale as it unfolded from start to finishRefuting suggestionIn a statement, Noonan said that he refutes “absolutely the validity of any suggestion that I or my officials acted inappropriately in meeting with Cerberus in March 2014″.He said that both he and the Department of Finance “have at all times cooperated with the Committee and have provided a large amount of supporting documentation to the Committee”.Nama sold its Northern Ireland loanbook in June 2014 for £1,137m. A Comptroller and Auditor General examination had to be carried out because of the size of the sale and the recorded loss associated with it. The Pac considered the report and held 11 meetings to further examine what went wrong.Noonan said that he voluntarily appeared before the Committee for over five hours in October of last year, describing it as “a decision which was largely unprecedented”.“Following leaks of a draft PAC working document last month, I wrote to the Chair of the PAC highlighting my concerns surrounding the leaking of information and what appeared to be unfounded claims contained therein,” said Noonan in a statement.I note that my letter has been included with the report. It is disappointing that unjustified and unfounded views have made their way into the final iteration.” Short URL Minister Michael Noonan Image: RollingNews.ie 60 Comments Tuesday 14 Mar 2017, 1:20 PM By Aoife Barry Michael Noonan refutes suggestion he ‘acted inappropriately’ over Project Eagle sale Noonan met with senior Ceberus representatives on the eve of the bid closing date. Share Tweet Email I refute absolutely the validity of any suggestion that I or my officials acted inappropriately in meeting with Cerberus in March 2014. At no point was I or my officials invited to discuss this meeting at the PAC nor was the alleged impropriety of this meeting raised in follow-up correspondence. The note of the meeting with Cerberus is on the Department of Finance’s website and is clear in stating that any issue relating to NAMA should be raised directly with NAMA.He described it as “entirely appropriate” that he as Minister for Finance would meet with the chairperson of a major international investment fund, “a former US Secretary of the Treasury no less”, at his request whilst he was in Dublin on business.This is part of the job of a Minister for Finance.He also noted that when he appeared before the committee in October of last year, “much of the discussion revolved around whether I should have intervened to put an end to the Project Eagle sales process”.I welcome the fact that the PAC accepted my evidence regarding this issue, and in doing so has recognised the clear legal separation between the Minister for Finance and NAMA’s commercial operations. As I stated at the time, I as Minister had no role, and have no role in relation to individual transactions and I am pleased that the PAC report has not suggested otherwise.He said he will be reviewing the report over the coming days. The report will be debated in the Dáil next week and Noonan said he looks forward to making a full contribution to that debate.LetterNoonan wrote a letter to Pac chairman Sean Fleming in February of this year saying that he had read articles which mention a draft working paper on the committee’s findings. He took issue with what was reported to be in this draft working paper.“There appears to be a clear inference that the committee working paper contains draft conclusions… that both I and my officials acted inappropriately in meeting with Cerberus representatives in the days prior to the Project Eagle sale process closing,” he noted.He described the suggestions as “extremely damaging to both myself, as Minister, and to my officials”.I refute absolutely the validity of any such purported conclusions, regardless of whether or not they are ultimately included in the committee’s final report.He also said in the letter that the records of his and his officials’ evidence confirm that the meetings with Cerberus were not raised during the committee hearings.He said that if this was a substantive consideration for the PAC, they should have been invited to publicly state the factual position for the record.He said the meeting was arranged at the request of Cerberus and was “high level in nature” and that it would have been unusual for him not to meet with such “notable individuals and firms”.He said that his meetings with Cerberus in March 2014 didn’t alter the fact that “neither I nor my officials were involved in the Project Eagle sales process”.He said it was established that the Project Eagle process was underway, and that Cerberus did inform them at the meetings that they were interested in the portfolio.He also said that records relating to the meetings had previously been released under the Freedom of Information Act in November 2015. Noonan himself provided records relating to these meetings directly to the committee in his correspondence in November and December 2016.Read: Dáil committee inquiry concludes Nama lost €800 million on Project Eagle in four years>last_img read more

Unreleased HalfLife multiplayer mod restored by fans

first_imgWe have good news and bad news. The good news is that there’s new Half-Life content out in the wild. The bad news is that it isn’t Half-Life 3. This may not be what Half-Life fans have been asking for, but it is a nice addition to a classic game and is also a great piece of playable history.Back in 1996, a player named David “Zoid” Kirsch created a mod for the original Quake that allowed two teams to capture each other’s flags. This was the very first Capture the Flag mode within a first person shooter. This mod, called “Threewave,” became hugely popular among the Quake community and was the basis for CTF modes in future FPS titles. The mod’s author would continue to update the mod for a full year before having to stop due to being hired by id Software to work on the multiplayer for Quake 2. Threewave would continue to see updates over the years.During the infamous Valve server hack of 2003, it was discovered that the company was working on a multiplayer mode for Half-Life that, just like the Quake mod, was going to be called Threewave. Players were able to extract the game from a folder called “wmods” but found that it was unplayable. Valve News Network’s Tyler McViker managed to track down a completed version from a Vietnamese FTP server, of all places. He then worked with a programmer to fix and finish the mod.VNN put in a lot of work to make this mod playable so we should all applaud them for their efforts. Valve is even endorsing this mod, lending credibility to the whole endeavor. If you want to experience a bit of gaming history then make sure to follow this link (it.s a .RAR file) to download Half-Life: Threewave. The graphics may be somewhat on the dated side but the game is still a blast to play.last_img read more

Top 7 Best Pokemon Games on Roblox

first_img If you ask any kid what their favorite Pokemon is they’ll probably have a top five list ready to go. Over the past two decades Pokemon have remained just as popular as ever and the video games maintain a strong fanbase with a large and varied community. But if you don’t have a Nintendo 3DS then you’re gonna miss out on almost all of the games. That’s where Roblox comes in.On your PC, mobile device, or even Xbox One, you can finally play in the world of Pokemon thanks to the Roblox platform. If you type in “Pokemon” in the search bar on Roblox you’ll find countless results. Make no mistake: none of these games are as good as the real thing, so this list being the “best” Pokemon games on Roblox is using the term “best” very loosely. How do you decide which Pokemon games are actually worth your time? That’s where we come in!This is our list of the seven best Pokemon games on Roblox.7. Pokemon Battle-Brawlers by BuildingDude000The first game on this list is also one of oldest, having originally debuted all the way back in 2009. For reference, that was just after Barack Obama was elected as President of the United States, that’s how long ago this game was first created. The fact that people still play it is remarkable, especially considering it hasn’t been updated in over two years. 6. Pokemon Universe by Raphael7In a lot of ways, Pokemon Universe feels unfinished. But it’s unique in that it allows you to start a game as either a Pokemon or a Trainer and take things from that point onward. The world feels mostly empty and there isn’t as much to do as there is in the other games on this list, but it packs enough original ideas to make it worth a look at the very least. And people still play it too, which is important.5. Pokemon Adventures by B_rcodeStop me if you’ve heard this before: you have to pick a starter Pokemon and embark on a quest to fill your Pokedex full of all the types of Pokemon out in the world. While Pokemon Adventures lacks originality and polish, it makes up for it with its sheer attention to detail and dedication to the source material.4. Pokemon Galaxy by Titanium StudiosAs one of the newest games on this list, Pokemon Galaxy was just created in August of 2016 — less than two years ago — but it’s already amassed well over 15 million players. If we ever got a fully realized 3D Pokemon game on Nintendo Switch, something tells me it might feel a bit like Pokemon Galaxy. Plus, any Pokemon game that lets me pick Eevee as my starter and let it follow me around everywhere I go is alright in my book.3. [Randomizer] Project: Pokemon by wish_zIf Brick Bronze isn’t really your style, then Project: Pokemon is a great choice for something with a more classic Pokemon style. The music feels like it was ripped right out of the Game Boy version of the game and plenty of iconic characters, like Professor Oak, have been perfectly replicated in the Roblox style.2. Pokemon Legends by BeasTakipPokemon Legends is one of the oldest Pokemon games on Roblox, clocking in at just under eight years old, but it still gets updates. The sequel is in beta right now, so it’s still a ways off from a full release, but in the meantime you can hop on and check out the sheer breadth of content from the types of Pokemon on display to the size of the environments ripe for exploration.1. Pokemon Brick Bronze by Pokemon BrickBronze VersionThis is the end all be all of Pokemon games on Roblox. With a massive world to explore, bonafide turn-based combat that is quite honestly ripped straight from the handheld games you know and love, and enough original ideas to occupy several days of your time, Pokemon Brick Bronze is far and away the best Pokemon game on Roblox. It’s not even a contest. In fact, it may be one of the best Roblox games period with over 388 million players across less than three years of life.The Roblox party doesn’t have to stop there since we’ve got tons of articles focused on the ever-evolving world that’s built from your own imagination. Start things off with this break down about who plays Roblox and what it is before moving onto this Roblox information dump for parents. If you’re looking for game recommendations you can even check out our list of the best Mario-style Roblox games or even the best Roblox racing games.

Huawei asks court to rule US ban unconstitutional

first_img 1 Share your voice 4:59 What is going on between Huawei and the US? Huawei Comment 18 Photos Mobile Song Liuping, chief legal officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, at a press conference in Shenzhen on Tuesday. Hector Retamal/AFP/Getty Images Huawei is delving deeper into its battle with the US government.The Chinese telecommunications giant filed a motion in US court on Tuesday to throw out US legislation that bars federal agencies from buying its products. The motion for summary judgment asks the court to rule on the constitutionality of Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that limits Huawei’s sales of telecom equipment. Huawei’s P30 looks like fantastic forbidden fruit “The fact is, the US government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat. There is no gun, no smoke. Only speculation,” said Dr. Song Liuping, Huawei’s chief legal officer, at the Shenzhen press conference on Tuesday.”We hope that mistakes in the NDAA can be corrected by the court.”Huawei launched its lawsuit against the US in March, after the company was scarred by scandal over concerns it poses security threats from the Chinese government. The company was added to the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security Entity List earlier this month, following an executive order from President Donald Trump effectively banning Huawei from US communications networks.”Politicians in the US are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company.” Song said. “This is not normal.” Tags Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

US Ebola case First diagnosis outside Africa

first_imgThe man is also the first to be diagnosed outside Africa, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, cautioning that since he was not sick on the plane he was unlikely to have infected other travellers.CDC chief Tom Frieden vowed that US health authorities would be able to contain the virus and the White House said President Barack Obama had been briefed by the CDC about the Texas case.‘We are stopping this in its tracks,’ said Frieden, describing the man as critically ill.The world’s largest outbreak of Ebola has infected more than 6,500 people across five west African countries and killed 3,091 since the start of the year, according to the World Health Organization.The CDC warned last week that a worst-case scenario could see Ebola cases explode to 1.4 million worldwide by January, but that such dire predictions could be avoided if resources are scaled up.The United States has already treated several patients who acquired Ebola during the West African outbreak, including Christian missionary doctors Kent Brantly and Rick Sacra, who have been declared free of the virus.last_img read more

Cabo San Lucas—Cabo Riviera a new luxury resident

first_imgCabo San Lucas—Cabo Riviera, a new luxury residential and commercial development in the Baja Peninsula, has broken ground. Located on the Sea of Cortez 45 minutes from the Los Cabos International airport, Cabo Riviera will be the only five-star development on the East Cape of the peninsula, which is known for its calm waters, beautiful white sand beaches, abundant marine life, diving, snorkeling and unparalleled fishing and boating. The 900-acre development will be anchored by two luxury hotels and will include branded residential living, a state-of-the art signature Pete Dye golf course, and a new 285-slip marina with European-influenced old world architecture.The development is a joint venture between several partners, each with unique resort development experience both in Mexico and the U.S. Grumar S.A., based in Mexico City, developed the first U.S. branded luxury hotel in Los Cabos and has executed developments of high-end projects in Huatulco, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and the Baja Peninsula.

The team brings development, financial, marketing and legal experience to the venture. The anchor five-star hotel and branded residences are a joint venture with Jorge Perez, Chairman of the Related Group of Miami.Mr. Jacobs said, “The market is demanding a pristine and secluded luxury project on the Sea of Cortez at Los Cabos, and we are responding. The East Cape of the Baja Peninsula is one of the most spectacular areas in the world. The Sea of Cortez has no pollution, stunning white sand beaches, incredible marine life and inspirational views of the majestic desert mountains of southern Baja. The air is dry, the ocean water is crystal clear, and there is a large living coral reef a few minutes off the coast.
