Rains in Chad interrupt refugee transfers from Darfur Sudan UN agency says

Heavy rain fell for just 45 minutes yesterday in the Abeche area of eastern Chad and one UNHCR team had to stop travelling on one side of a seasonally dry riverbed, or “wadi,” because of the sudden rushing waters.The team was soon joined by other UNHCR staff members, returning to Abeche from Farchana camp, who walked from the other side of the wadi after abandoning their vehicle to avoid having it sink into mud and water.”This signals the sort of challenges we’re going to face as the rainy season sets in,” said UNHCR spokeswoman Jennifer Pagonis at a news briefing in Geneva, adding, “In a matter of weeks, many of the roads in eastern Chad will become impassable because of the rains.”The refugee agency has been transferring some 125,000 refugees who fled strife-torn Darfur in western Sudan deep into eastern Chad, away from the frontier area where Sudanese government-backed Janjaweed militia have stolen their livestock in cross-border raids. It has moved 75,000 people so far.The situation is especially urgent as the cross-border attacks have continued, UNHCR said. Gunfire was heard near the border village of Haraza, near Tissi, on Monday night. Chadian soldiers said that as they responded to the shooting, they pushed back what appeared to be a group of Sudanese militia trying to cross over into Chad. read more

African leaders highlight UNs ability to support countries and rid world of

“Namibia is a child of international solidarity, midwifed by the United Nations,” Hage G. Geingob, the Namibian President, told world leaders from the podium. “After the termination of South Africa’s mandate over the then South West Africa, the United Nations assumed direct responsibility over Namibia.”Namibia attained independence in 1990, and, according to President Geingob, was able to develop the necessary building to construct its democracy thanks to the UN.“We are in the process of establishing a new Africa, with its own narrative as told by its sons and daughters,” the President continued. “Africa has turned a new leaf, bidding farewell to the days of coup d’états and embracing electoral democracy. We as Africans, through the African Union, have ostracized those who come to office through unlawful ways.”The Namibian leader explained that the recent coup in Burkina Faso is an example of the continent’s zero tolerance policy towards those who come to power through illegal ways, and called for the establishment of processes, systems and institutions to ensure electoral democracy.“This will ensure that those who lose at the polls accept the results,” he stressed. “By doing so, we can bring to an end a situation where those who lose at the polls feel left out, defeated and therefore choose to wage war.”The President further noted that Namibia is rated number sixth overall as the best governed country on the African continent by the Mo Ibrahim index of African governance, and number seven in Africa as a “clean country” in terms of corruption by transparency international.“We are still faced with enormous social disparities between the rich and poor, amongst others,” he warned. “Noticeable is the critical shortage of housing and other basic necessities.”President Geingob also recalled that on the day he was sworn in as President last March, he announced that the Namibian Government was declaring “all-out war on poverty.”“I would like to add that one of the most impactful interventions we can make in the war against poverty is through empowering women, who although representing half of the world’s population, account for nearly 70 per cent of the world’s poor,” he stated.Namibia is currently second to Rwanda in terms of female representation in Parliament, at 47 per cent.Meanwhile, also addressing the General Assembly today was King Mswati III of Swaziland.King Mswati III of Swaziland addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia PakHe appealed to the UN to continue helping Africa emerge from the cycle of poverty and disease as the continent seeks to attain the aspirations of its vision 2063, aimed at eradicating poverty and creating prosperity for all. “Africa has a great potential for investment,” King Mswati III declared. “What remains is creating the requisite environment for economic growth. We strongly believe that the structures of the UN can provide a peaceful global village that is free of fear and violence.”He noted that the “impressive progress” witnessed during the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) gives his country confidence in that the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will enjoy greater success. “We have good reason to anticipate a sustainable transformation of nations over the next 15 years,” he said, adding that Swaziland looks forward to a legally binding global climate agreement at the UN climate change conference (COP21) in France later this year.He also highlighted that the secret of his Kingdom has been consultation and dialogue to build consensus, describing it as a “model of peace that has a place in the execution of UN operations.”Also speaking at the podium today was the President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika, who said a complete sense of peace in the world cannot be realized without justice, dignity and freedom. President Arthur Peter Mutharika of Malawi addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Kim Haughton“As we live in this imperfect world, the pursuit for peace should be our main goal if we are to shape a promising world for our future generations,” President Mutharika declared. Regarding his country’s socioeconomic development, he said it is evident that Malawi is embarking on the implementation of the new post-2015 development agenda with “unfinished business,” despite success in meeting half of the MDGs. “My Government is grateful to development partners who worked with us to achieve four of the eight Millennium Development Goals namely; reducing child mortality; combating HIV and AIDS, Malaria and other diseases; ensuring environmental sustainability; and developing a global partnership for development.”On the global goal of ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030, President Mutharika underlined that reaching that goal will require enhancing the capacity of developing countries such as Malawi to manufacture drugs and make them more available.He also highlighted his Government’s commitment to the He-for-She campaign, launched by UN Women to address gender inequalities and end gender-based violence.Finally, he noted that to “strike a massive blow at poverty” and achieve the SDGs, the world needs improved and increased access to higher education; yet, he expressed that he doesn’t find SDG 4 – ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning – to “fully capture the centrality of higher education.”Meanwhile, the President of Tanzania, Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, underlined that most of the conflicts the world is witnessing today are being handled, first and foremost, by regional and sub-regional organizations. President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete of Tanzania addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Kim Haughton“The UN, therefore, must seek to forge strategic partnership with these organizations,” urged President Kikwete. “Where and when appropriate, the United Nations should invest in strengthening the capacity of these organizations and their member states, in anticipating, detecting, preventing, managing and resolving conflicts. I am of the view that this capacity is urgently needed in Africa.”On the issue of peacekeeping, he noted that Tanzania is proud to have contributed 1,322 troops out of the 125,000 women and men deployed across 16 UN peacekeeping missions worldwide, adding that his country is ready to contribute more if requested.The Tanzanian leader also announced it would be his last time speaking to the General Assembly as he is about to leave office at the completion of his two term mandate.Taking the podium in the afternoon for the first time was recently elected Zambian President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.President Edgar Chagwa Lungu of Zambia addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia Pak“I thank the people of Zambia for being true champions of democracy,” President Chagwa stated, noting however that his country is concerned that the gears to advance the three pillars of the UN Charter [human rights, development, peace and security] are moving “at a very slow pace; a pace with the potential of negating the gains we have achieved so far.”“Seventy years of the United Nations has seen more conflicts in Africa than any other continent,” he stressed. “Yet, the same 70 years characterizes Africa’s absolute exclusion from decision-making in the UN Security Council where a significant part of the agenda concerns the continent.”President Chagwa also insisted that special attention be paid to gender and women’s empowerment, and that Zambia acknowledges that gender-based violence extends to most nations, including its own. He announced that his Government will soon be launching the USAID-supported “Boys-to-Men” project targeting the 15-21 age group, to encourage the development of a non-violent generation.In her remarks Aja Isatou Njie-Saidy, Vice-President of Gambia, said there had never been a greater moment for the Organization to respond to the increasing complexity of threats to peace and stability. The UN must craft and implement critical resolutions for the sustenance of better lives for all. In order to establish world peace and security, all UN Member States must be promptly and severely reprimanded for any violations of the Sustainable Development Agenda.Aja Isatou Njie-Saidy, Vice President of the Gambia, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia PakShe went on to say that the United Nations must act with greater resolve in promoting sustainable production and consumption patterns and in reducing man-made disasters. She was also among the many African leaders to weigh in on the intergovernmental negotiations on reforming the Security Council, which she said must be driven by Member States themselves, acknowledging the need to increase representation of African nations through two permanent and two non-permanent seats.Habib Essid, Head of Government of Tunisia, told the Assembly that his country had witnessed important work in its democratic transition, where growing political awareness allowed stakeholders to employ dialogue to resolve its problems. Legislative and presidential elections had produced robust institutions that were focusing attention on policies and programmes aimed at promoting social and economic development. National guidelines on ensuring sustainable development had been crafted in the interest of the people and the country in alignment with the global agenda.Habib Essid, Head of Government of the Republic of Tunisia, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia PakAlthough Tunisia had made great strides in countering terrorism, it was the victim recently of two “heinous attacks” aimed at undermining the country’s culture of tolerance as well as the economy. Tunisia’s counter-terrorism strategy went beyond a military dimension and sought to address root causes through bilateral and multilateral cooperation and coordination. “The escalation of conflicts across the globe – regardless of the reasons – is a source of concern and requires greater international partnership,” he declared.Also addressing the Assembly, Hamadi Ould Meimou, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mauritania said that his country had participated in UN peacekeeping operations and was preparing to dispatch a battalion aimed at helping establish peace in the Central African Republic (CAR).He said that his Government was following with “grave concern” the dire crises in both Yemen and Syria, and he said the Government was also calling on the parties in Libya would take greater strides to establish the rule of law for the benefit of all the Libyan people.Foreign Minister Hamadi Ould Meimou of Mauritania addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session.

Indeed, the continent faced pockets of deep poverty and conflict. Some regions had recently been hit with the Ebola virus, which had exposed the fragility of their healthcare systems. read more

Newmont Mining ensuring reliable and healthy watersheds

first_imgWater impacts economic development, business growth and social well-being in many regions of the world. For Newmont, water is a critical resource to its business and the environments in which the company operates. Newmont has developed a Global Water Strategy (GWS) that supports water stewardship and collaborative action. In support of this, the company has also initiated work to align its activities with priority United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and improve how it measures and reports its impact in a number of areas.As the UN reports, “Without quality, sustainable water resources and sanitation, progress in many other areas across the SDGs, including health, education and poverty reduction, will also be held back.” Due to population growth, increasing food and energy requirements and climate change many watersheds where we operate are under some form of increasing stress. Supporting these changing conditions requires Newmont to be engaged and collaborating on the shared water challenges for it and other water users to assure its future project development and water access.Newmont operations require water for milling and ore processing, as well as, other operational activities. Newmont’s GWS supports the water stewardship within the watersheds in which it operates: focusing on identification and management of risk and opportunities. In doing so, Newmont supports the collaboration to manage and mitigate water impacts from economic growth and the prosperity for the watershed and regions where it operates.Newmont uses a Water Accounting Frameworks (WAF) that is aligned with the guidance for water accounting developed by the Mineral Council of Australia (MCA) for the minerals industry. The WAF is used to estimate and report water use and categories of water quality at each operating site. Regularly monitoring, assessing and reporting against these frameworks helps each region continually improve efforts to efficiencies, reduce fresh water use and support the sustainability of the watersheds in which it operates.Several examples of the projects that Newmont is involved with under the GWS include:•Nevada Stream Rehabilitation – Newmont rehabilitated a portion of the Maggie Creek Watershed to preserve Lahontan cutthroat habitat. To date, this cooperative effort with Trout Unlimited and others has resulted in 82 miles of stream recovery, around 2,000 acres of riparian habitat improvement and 40,000 acres of upland-habitat enhancement.•Water Infrastructure Improvements – Investments in potable community water infrastructure is another example of the company’s contributions to water access and sanitation (SDG6). In Peru, Newmont invested more than $13 million over five years – in partnership with the local municipal water authority – to improve drinking water quality and reliability for the city of Cajamarca. Results of Yanacocha’s investments show that 23,800 people have potable water for the first time thanks to the installation of 5,402 new connections.By understanding and proactively managing water risks Newmont supports projects that provide access to water and sanitation, protect and sustain watersheds for future use, and support sustainable management practices.last_img read more

Bornagain Christian council worker wins €70000 in discrimination case

first_imgTHE EQUALITY TRIBUNAL has found that Tipperary County Council discriminated against an employee on religious grounds when he was dismissed from his job and has ordered it to pay him €70,000.The complainant in question – a Born-again Christian – is a civil engineer who was employed by the council in December 2007, having previously worked there for ten years.In 2010, he was dismissed from his job following a number of complaints about him “preaching” to staff and members of the public during work hours. He received multiple warnings and attended disciplinary meetings in which he was told not to discuss his religion during work hours or on lunch breaks.He was also compelled to seek professional help to control his compulsion to speak to people about his beliefs and he attended four counselling sessions.The man continued to speak to colleagues and to members of the public out on the street during work hours and was suspended with pay for a period before a final investigation which resulted in his dismissal.He claimed it was unfair for management to tell him not to discuss his faith as the tenets of his religion require him to speak to people about Jesus and to share the Gospel. If he detected from a person’s body language that he or she was not interested, he said he would change the conversation or walk away.He also said that there was no question that he inappropriately forced his religious beliefs on any person he spoke to.MarginalisedThe man told the tribunal that he was treated differently than other staff as his conversations were continually monitored and watched once he was told not to talk about his religion. He said that he was marginalised in the office as other subjects could be discussed by the staff such as sports and current affairs but he was not allowed to discuss religion or mention the name of Jesus.He said that it was a great difficulty for him that he could not mention the name of Jesus Christ in the office, “the most important being to him in his life”, while other staff would deliberately use the name of Jesus in an offensive manner in front of him.It was submitted that the council was treating the man as though he was suffering from some form of mental disability because of his need to share his faith and arranged that he would receive professional assistance to address the problem and the complainant co-operated and attended the sessions.The man’s counsel also submitted that the county council’s employee handbook states that it is an equal opportunities employer and there was no written policy about the sharing of faith during work hours or while on breaks.Inappropriate promotion of faithThe council’s representative said there was no ban imposed on the man in relation to the profession of his faith. He was dismissed for the “inappropriate promotion of his faith” to members of the public during working hours which included lunch time. They said the man was “perfectly free to practice his religion outside working hours”.The Equality Tribunal found that the council did discriminate against the man on religious grounds. The equality officer said she was satisfied that the effects of the dismissal on the man had been “very serious” as he had only managed to get part-time work since then.She ordered the council to pay €70,000 in compensation.Read: Lecturer wins €80,000 in discrimination case against NUI Galway>Read: Woman with disabilities awarded €30k after employer refused to provide her with a chair>last_img read more

Quand la France colonisait la Floride une controverse encore dactualité

first_imgQuand la France colonisait la Floride, une controverse encore d’actualitéLe site de la plus ancienne colonie d’Amérique du Nord a enfin été identifié. Si on a longtemps cru qu’elle se trouvait dans les frontières actuelles de la Floride, la colonie française de Fort Caroline se situe en fait en Georgie. Deux équipes se disputent farouchement la découverte.Il est bien connu que la Louisiane doit son nom à Louis XIV, mais d’autres épisodes bien français de la colonisation du Nouveau-Monde sont restés dans l’ombre. Il y a ainsi eu des tentatives d’implantation en Floride, mais elles se sont toutes soldées par des catastrophes. Cette courte et désastreuse aventure a surtout été centrée autour du site de Fort Caroline, dont l’emplacement a longtemps fait l’objet d’un vif débat chez les universitaires américains.Il faut dire que le site de l’implantation des Français en Floride ne se situerait au final pas en Floride, mais en Georgie ! L’ancienne appellation de Floride recouvrait en effet un territoire plus vaste que l’Etat Américain actuel. De la même manière, la Louisiane française s’étendait sur un territoire qui empiète aujourd’hui sur quinze Etats américains et une petite partie du Canada.Une vilaine querelle de clocher ?L’Université d’Etat de Floride a ainsi déclaré le 21 février que Fort Caroline se situait le long de la rivière Altamaha en Géorgie, et non pas au niveau de la rivière floridienne Saint John. Les chercheurs de cette faculté s’étaient pourtant longuement opposés à cette thèse, alors défendue par leurs collègues de Géorgie. Mauvais perdants, ils tentent quand même de s’en attribuer la découverte selon le site examiner.com. Pire, l’équipe de l’Université d’Etat de Floride est directement accusée d’avoir plagié le travail de the People of One Fire (POOF), le peuple d’un même feu, un groupe de chercheurs issus de l’ethnie amérindienne des Muskogee. La question est d’importance aux Etats-Unis puisqu’il s’agit du plus ancien site fortifié colonial d’Amérique du Nord.Tout est parti de la découverte en Georgie d’artéfacts français par l’historien amérindien Michael Jacobs en 2006. Ses prises de contact avec divers archéologues se sont alors révélées infructueuses et il s’est tourné vers POOF. Puis, les chercheurs ont commencé à accumuler les preuves et indices de l’emplacement réel de Fort Caroline, aussi bien sur le terrain, dans les archives que sur les cartes d’époque. Ils ont annoncé leur découverte au public le 23 décembre dernier, mais il semble bien que le chantier de fouilles sera finalement confié aux archéologues floridiens.Deux tentatives de colonisation…Fort Caroline a été fondé en 1564 par René de Laudonnière. Ses colons étaient principalement des Huguenots, des Français protestants qui fuyaient les persécutions. Les conditions de vie particulièrement pénibles dans la région ont provoqué plusieurs mutineries et le vol des bateaux des Français.A cause de ces débuts difficiles, Jean Ribaut a été appelé à la rescousse avec des renforts. Ce dernier avait établi la première colonie française de Floride, Charlesfort, l’année précédente. Les trente colons stationnés y vivaient une situation particulièrement épouvantable. Leurs esclaves se sont rapidement révoltés et ont incendié leurs navires avant de se réfugier dans la jungle.Ceci a poussé les Français survivants à repartir d’eux-mêmes en France sur des radeaux plutôt que d’attendre le retour de leur chef. Certains ont réussi l’exploit, non sans avoir été réduits à dévorer leurs compagnons pendant la traversée.…Qui s’achèvent dans le sangÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?L’arrivée de ces renforts aurait pu améliorer la situation à Fort Caroline, mais elle a eu comme effet principal d’inquiéter les Espagnols. Une série d’escarmouches a rapidement escaladé entre les deux camps : une première attaque navale des Espagnols a échoué et les bateaux français ont été dispersés par une tempête alors qu’ils menaient des représailles contre la colonie de San Agustin.Le 18 septembre 1565, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés mena une attaque terrestre victorieuse sur la colonie. Pendant ce temps, les troupes françaises éparpillées par le cyclone retournaient par petits groupes à Fort Caroline, sans savoir que leur base était tombée. Les Espagnols, catholiques, ont systématiquement exécuté les prisonniers protestants, même ceux qui s’étaient rendus. Des flibustiers français ont investi les ruines du fort quelques années plus tard mais, après les échecs de Charlesfort et Fort Caroline, la France n’a plus jamais essayé de coloniser la Floride.Le 1 mars 2014 à 18:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Even if he’s 90 percent,” head coach Bruce Arians said this week. “The energy he brings and just the respect that he brings (means) you want him on the field.”Campbell has not seen the field on game day since getting chop-blocked by Broncos tight end Julius Thomas on Oct. 5 in Denver.Campbell practiced Thursday and Friday, albeit limited, and the 6-foot-8, 300-pound lineman will be wearing a brace on the knee.“It’s different,” he said. “I’ve never played with a brace on my knee before, so I’ve just got to get used to it. But I felt explosive (in practice) and I was able to play football the way I like to play football.”Meanwhile, running back Marion Grice, a former Arizona State Sun Devil, will be in uniform, active for the first time since he was signed off the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad on Sept. 23.The Cardinals’ seven inactives Sunday are defensive tackle Bruce Gaston, tight end Troy Niklas, nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu, quarterback Logan Thomas, guard Earl Watford and linebackers Glenn Carson and Thomas Keiser. Niklas was ruled out Friday after not practicing all week because of a bad ankle, an injury he suffered at Denver. The other six players are healthy scratches.Both Arians and Campbell said there will be no snap count limitation despite the defensive end’s layoff.“The big thing is just giving everything I have and being honest with the training staff and my coaches and myself — and just making sure that I’m doing what’s best to help the team. That’s it,” Campbell said. “This is a game I want to be a part of. It’s a huge game. The Eagles are a great team.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler 6 warms up

first_imgChicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (6) warms up before an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers, Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015, in Chicago. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling GLENDALE, Ariz. — John Fox sounds a lot like previous Bears coaches in the early days of their Jay Cutler inheritance.“I think he’s been outstanding,” Fox said of Cutler on Wednesday during a conference call with Arizona media members. “He works hard. He’s a smart guy. He’s on top of his preparation.“I’ve seen the guy I think throw, what, two interceptions over those five (including preseason) games. Unless I’m missing somebody that plays quarterback in the National Football League, if you haven’t thrown an interception, you haven’t played. That’s the only history I have with him, and so far I think it’s been a good history.” There is plenty of time to change that, especially if you subscribe to Cutler’s well-worn reputation as a malcontent, a difficult QB to coach and a guy who can’t lead his team to anything other than dissension and coaching changes.In nine NFL seasons — three in Denver; six in Chicago — Cutler had led his teams to just one playoff berth and one playoff victory (over the 7-9 Seahawks). He has thrown for 27,974 yards with 184 TDs and a whopping 131 interceptions.His hangdog sideline expressions are infamous in Chicago, previous teammates have been happy to throw him under the bus, he is the source of all evil in a town obsessed with the Bears and in Adam Gase, he is playing for his fifth offensive coordinator in those six seasons, having worn out Mike Martz, Ron Turner, Mike Tice and Aaron Kromer, who was really just a figurehead coordinator under play-calling head coach Marc Trestman.Cutler admits that he reacts to the criticism differently than he did when he was younger, but he is never able to fully block it out.“It’s a very emotional game and I think everyone in the locker room takes a lot of this stuff home with them,” Cutler said. “The older you get, you get some perspective on some things. That doesn’t mean I take it any more lightly than before or it doesn’t bother me, because some things do. “I think still, to this day, some things bother me, but you can’t control a lot of these things outside. You will hear some things and whether you like it or not, there’s not much you can do about it. I just try to concentrate on what I can control and move forward.”Cutler signed a seven-year extension last year with a total value of $126.7 million according to overthecap.com. If the Bears were to release him after the 2016 season, however, he would only account for $2 million in dead money and the team would enjoy a $14 million cap savings.That timing might just be right. If anyone can win with a less-than-elite quarterback it’s Fox. Fox took Jake Delhomme to a Super Bowl in Carolina and won a playoff game with Tim Tebow in Denver. If he can’t fix Cutler after two seasons, maybe nobody can.“Any time you learn a new offense you kind of have to forget everything you knew before and just buy into the new language and the verbiage and all the nuances that go into it,” Cutler said. “It’s a pretty in-depth process, especially with Adam’s offense. He’s really detailed and he’s got a ton of plays.”“You saw the productivity he had in Denver with Tebow and Kyle Orton and obviously with Peyton (Manning). I’ve known Adam for a long time, so I knew what kind of coach and system I was getting into. I knew at the end of the day he would take care of the quarterback and try to put us in a good position.” 0 Comments   Share   center_img The problem for Cutler may not be his ability. It may be the ability outsiders expect him to have. He is not Aaron Rodgers or Manning or Tom Brady. On the other hand, an honest assessment by those who want to replace him is that there aren’t 15 quarterbacks better than Cutler in the league. If the Bears cut him loose, things could easily get worse.Cutler has played with poor offensive lines much of his time in Chicago. The defense has been dreadful the last few years and as a result, Cutler has played from behind a lot. Cutler is 21-7 in games in which he has thrown fewer than 30 passes. He’s 32-41 in games in which he has thrown 30 or more passes. To that end, Fox is trying to have him do less, by using Matt Forte more, even if he won’t admit the change.“I think they ran the ball extremely well last week and controlled the clock,” said Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, who will face Cutler and the Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field. “It put him in a very comfortable situation where he didn’t have to throw the ball 40 to 50 times a game.”Even so, Cutler’s one interception in that 31-23 loss to the Packers last week came in a critical moment with the Bears driving for the tying score late. That and his completion percentage (50) left doubts as to whether he was benefitting from his latest coordinator. “It’s a lot easier when you stay in the same system your whole career, but when you go through three or four in four or five years, it’s extremely hard on you,” Arians said. “He’s a very bright guy. It’s a matter of learning the language, all the little scenarios of hots and blitzes and those things, especially if you are changing personnel, which he has had to do.”Arians got a chance to talk with Cutler when he interviewed for the Bears head-coaching job that eventually went to Trestman, much to the hindsight dismay of the Chicago media and fan base.“I met a guy that was very passionate about the game, wanted to win and was willing to do whatever it took to win,” Arians said. “I always felt he might be the most misunderstood quarterback in the league.”Despite all the barbs, Cutler says it would still be fun to win in Chicago — for Chicago.“We’re going to get it,” he said. “We’re heading in the right direction, we have the right head coach, the right coaches around him, we’ve got great schemes offensively and defensively, and we’ve got the right players.“It’s just a matter of time, going out and experiencing some things, making mistakes, fix them and try not to make them again.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

I regret taking the fourthdown play now It was

first_img“I regret taking the fourth-down play now. It was a bad call and a bad decision,” Arians admitted to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Paul Calvisi after the game. “I trusted our guys way too much and put the game in their hands at that point. Probably shouldn’t have put it in their hands.”So here was the context.Arians couldn’t trust his receivers. Two plays prior on 2nd-and-6, receiver J.J. Nelson had dropped an out route toward the sideline.Two plays later, it was either trusting his unsteady wideouts or a run game that allowed back Peterson to take 14 carries for just 26 yards, a 1.9-yard per rush average.After making the call and living with the disappointing result, Arians again saw the poor decision on his part snowball with Foreman’s run.“That’s the way it’s been all year. We don’t respond very well to bad things or sudden change,” the Cardinals coach said.“I don’t know if we lost our confidence, but we definitely dropped way too many easy passes,” Arians added. “That led to the fourth-down call again. Two weeks in a row, dropped passes led to me making a fourth-down call that (I) probably shouldn’t have made.” Contextually, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was between a rock and a hard place.It was 4th-and-1 at Arizona’s own 35-yard line, and the Cardinals still trailed the Houston Texans, 24-21.Six minutes and 33 seconds remained in the game.But Arians kept the offense on the field, rolling the dice that this play would either set up a game-tying or game-winning score or seal his team’s fate.The play-call: A handoff to Adrian Peterson that was met up the middle by Houston defenders. Peterson bounced outside but was greeted by a gang of tacklers for a one-yard loss. With possession handed to the Texans, Houston handed the ball to D’Onta Foreman, who found a lane for a 34-yard touchdown burst, setting the final score in Arizona’s 31-21 loss on Sunday.

Muzak

first_imgClive TurnerMUZAK! Yes, Muzak. It’s a marmite thing. You either love it or hate it. That said, and to be fair, actually there are lots of people who feel neither one way nor the other about what many feel is an absolute pestilence.Restaurants, supermarkets, malls, other shops and public places are aplenty with the insistent beat (it always seems to possess this distinctive feature) which belabours the ears and sensitivities seemingly wherever you go.Supermarket managers claim that muzak creates a more relaxing selling environment and definitely assists sales overall. So, I suppose it’s here to stay in such places. But in some public places it can drive you mad. It must drive the employees up the wall, unless they get to the stage where they simply tune it out and somehow don’t hear it any more?Independent research is certainly hard to come by. I like to back up everything I write with facts and homework, but apart from ‘Pipedown’, about which more later, I have been hard pressed to dig up much other than anecdotal and personal opinions, which might suggest that it isn’t really much of an issue either way. Yet, when you ask individuals their opinion, it is seldom particularly favourable.There are local restaurants in Cyprus to which I have been where the music is so loud and intrusive that you cannot enjoy a conversation with fellow guests and even the waiters have difficulty taking the orders. That for me means no return visit. Sometimes the music is not muzak and is live, and here the musicians all too often completely forget they are there gently to entertain the guests and not self-indulgently take over the establishment. Do they fondly imagine they are filling the gaps in conversation? No, if I want a concert, I go to a concert hall. I want to enjoy the company and not have to give up the unequal competition. When gently asking if the management can turn the volume down there is usually an affronted look and one is made to feel uncomfortable. No, the decision is inviolate and you simply have to vote with your feet. Have you done that?There is little doubt that the use of background music or muzak supports concerns that culture is degraded by marketeers as a means of social control and yes, an organisation called ‘Pipedown’ was formed some 25 years ago to resist background music pressure.It now has affiliates round the world, and has discovered some surprising facts. It can have an adverse effect on human health. Like all unwanted noise, it raises blood pressure, decreases the immune system, and creates problems for the millions of people with hearing problems. As Stephen Fry says: “Piped electricity, piped water, piped gas, but please, never piped music.” And, “I have left shops unable to make a wanted purchase because of hellish piped music,” says Joanna Lumley. Sound familiar?There are some figures which indicate that 34 per cent dislike piped music, 30 per cent like it, and the rest are indifferent. Interestingly, Aldi, Lidl, Waitrose, John Lewis, and Marks and Spencer have all done away with it. And are thriving. Gatwick airport stopped it, and Sainsbury and Tesco only use it at Christmas now. Hospitals have largely discontinued non-stop music and TV background noise (where it can’t be escaped) and telephone companies are cutting back on incessant music tracks while holding callers.A BBC poll found people hated piped music in trains. The Sunday Times found their readers said it is the single thing they most detested about modern life. An LBC radio poll found 50 per cent of their listeners would, like Joanna Lumley, walk out of a shop with piped music.Barclays Bank discovered 61 per cent of its customer base was alienated by it. The University of Cardiff found piped music harmed rather than helped productivity.Music teachers find it increasingly difficult to get their students to actually listen to music as it now comes at them non-stop from every wall. Musicians of all sorts hate piped music because they find ‘acoustic wallpaper’ a pain in the ear.Piped music does not come free, but is an extra that must be paid for with every meal, drink, ticket, piece of clothing, and so on…Some years ago, NOP carried out an opinion poll on the general public’s attitudes to piped music. Among those aged over 45, the majority hated it, as did the majority of those in the A-B social groups. Even among younger people aged under 25, some 21 per cent said they disliked piped music.What’s your opinion? Or are you indifferent?newventure@cytanet.com.cyYou May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
