Crunching Fijian tackle puts immediate halt to Brumbies attack at Brisbane 10s

first_imgFriday Feb 9, 2018 Crunching Fijian tackle puts immediate halt to Brumbies attack at Brisbane 10s The Brisbane 10s kicked off in Australia on Friday with teams from around the globe having a go at this enjoyable format, finding the balance between fifteens and 7s rugby. There was a huge amount of skill and physicality on show, as seen here between Fiji and the Brumbies. While the 7s World Series features specialists of the format, the Brisbane 10s is a little different in that multiple top fifteens players take part, including some big names from years gone by. Carlos Spencer and Andrew Walker, both now in their forties, put in good showings while the likes of Conrad Smith and Steffon Armitage represented Section Paloise (PAU) from France, and Digby Ioane and Berrick Barnes turned out for the Panasonic Wild Knights from Japan. More current and up and coming stars are also there, such as Taniela Tupou, Julian Savea and Tim Nanai Williams. It adds another dimension to the event, and makes for great viewing. One veteran of the game who was playing for the Brumbies was prop Ben Alexander, who as you can see here, definitely didn’t do his teammate Robbie Abel any favours just before halftime in their clash with Fiji.The hospital pass was well read by Seru Vularika, who flew in and crunched hooker Abel, leaving him rolling on the turf wondering why he signed up for this in the first place. Day Two kicks off tomorrow, with the Wild Knights against the Queensland Reds. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 4/6/2015

first_img SHARE Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 4/6/2015 Previous articleCanal Expansion a Big Benefit For Soy GrowersNext articleMorning Outlook Ryan Martin Facebook Twitter By Ryan Martin – Apr 6, 2015 Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 4/6/2015 SHARE We embark on a somewhat soggy week this week, although models still are in some disagreement as to how soggy and where. If we broad brush the week, we still think that overall, we can see half to 1.25” rain totals from tomorrow through Friday with coverage at nearly 100% of the state. However, when you break it down on a day by day basis…the rains are less impressive, along with the coverage. Each little wave that comes through has the potential to have some heavier rains in it. Temperatures will be below normal, but not by a massive amount.Today should be dry beginning to end over most of the state. We will likely see some clouds increase as the day wears on, especially in the south and western parts of the state. But, real rain should hold of until after midnight, starting in the far southwest part of the state. Winds were impressive over a large part of the state this weekend. As we see some stronger lows try and exit the plains this week, we see some potential for wind again, although the impressive warming gradient that fueled winds this weekend will NOT be an issue through the week…the systems are more stable in regard to temperature change.Tomorrow’s rain will be most impressive during the day south of State Rd 26. The southernmost 60% of the state gets .25-.7” rain totals, while the northern 40% sees a few hundredths to a tenth. But, overnight tomorrow night into early Thursday, the heavier rains move north, such that between midnight and 6AM Wednesday, the northern 40% can pick up .2”-.6” rain totals. The rest of Wednesday will be damp, but without a lot of new moisture added…mainly a few hundredths.Thursday and Friday look soggy with another wave moving through that triggers half to 1 inch rains. These will be basically statewide over the two day period, with the likelihood of heavy rain falling over central Indiana.Next weekend will be mostly dry, but then we have another half to 1 inch potential rain maker coming for Monday the 13th, with complete statewide coverage once again. Finally we should dry down for Tuesday the 14th through the at least the 21st. Each system over the next 10 days opens the door to cooler air behind it…so we expect our temps to hold no better than normal, and have a cooler bias. Even the drier period to start the second half of the month looks to have no major warming coming with it, at least right away.last_img read more

Experts urge caution, though, because the chemicals involved can burn. Hand sanitizer is pictured in the swabbing tent before the city’s coronavirus testing site opened next to Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia (Tim Tai/The Philadelphia Inquirer via AP)Jeffery Coffer, professor of inorganic and materials chemistry in the College of Science and Engineering, said people must consider the purity or source of the aloe vera and rubbing alcohol (isopropanol) they use and make sure they mix the proper amounts of both.“Accidental mixtures of these ingredients in these homemade hand sanitizers could be the cause of the burning,” Coffer said.A Collin County parent, who asked to keep her identity private, explained how she made homemade hand sanitizers for her children at home.“With all of the ‘shelter-in-place’ orders and every store I go to being out of sanitizers, it just made sense for me to make homemade sanitizers to protect my household,” she said.The CDC recommends that people should wash their hands with soap and water whenever possible and that alcohol-based hand sanitizers only “reduce the number of microbes on hands in some situations.”  “After a few days, I noticed that my kids kept saying their hands were starting to burn after using homemade sanitizers, so that’s when I knew it was best to stick to just washing hands,” she said.Although when soap and water are not available, CDC recommends that people use alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain at least 60 percent of alcohol.  ReddIt Twitter TAGScoronavirusHealthPublic Health World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook TCU News Now 2/24/2021 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Giridhar Akkaraju, a biology professor in the Science of College and Engineering, said he and his wife created homemade hand sanitizer when they are not able to wash their hands.“We mixed aloe vera and rubbing alcohol (isopropanol) because alcohol destroys the virus’ coat, known as the envelope,” said Akkaraju. Studies have found that sanitizers with an alcohol concentration between 60-95% are more effective at killing germs than non-alcohol based hand sanitizers, according to the CDC. “If we weren’t in a pandemic, then washing hands excessively is probably not necessary. In fact, excessive washing of hands probably removes “good” bacteria and creates space for “bad” bacteria that can cause disease,” said Akkraju.last_img read more

Pasadena Chamber Board Votes to Oppose Imposition of L.A.-Style Minimum Wage Increase in Pasadena

first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Pasadena Chamber CEO and President Paul LittleAt its August meeting, the Board of Directors of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, without objection, voted to strongly oppose increasing the minimum wage in Pasadena.Citing two studies performed for the Chamber and a peer-review of that work, Board members, representing small, medium and large businesses in diverse sectors of our local economy, cited potential negative impacts on the local economy, risks to employment, impacts on the local retail, hospitality and healthcare industries, as well as youth employment, in making their decision.Pasadena Chamber Board members said they clearly understood that imposing the Los Angeles minimum wage model in Pasadena would harm workers, local small businesses and pose a threat to our local economy.“Recognizing that only 13,700 Pasadena residents work in the city, and that a much smaller subset of those are breadwinners that earn minimum wage, Chamber Board members chose to support the Pasadena economy in opposing the Los Angeles minimum wage model here,” said Pasadena Chamber CEO and President Paul Little. “We received analysis from graduate scholars at Johns Hopkins University and Boston College, and requested a peer review by a retired Ph.D. in economics. The conclusions were the same: raising the minimum wage in Pasadena, following the Los Angeles model, would be detrimental to our local economy, negatively impact a significant portion of our small, locally owned businesses, result in fewer employment opportunities for our economically impacted residents. Raising the minimum wage here, following the LA model, would have little, if any, impact on poverty in our city.”The Pasadena Chamber polled its members about the impact of importing the Los Angeles minimum wage model to Pasadena. While not a scientifically valid poll, 69.4% of the respondents indicated the increase to $15 per hour by 2020 would have a negative impact on their businesses. When asked, Chamber member companies said they would cope with the increased costs by reducing their workforce, cutting hours for existing workers, raising prices and not filling vacant positions.“When we passed the Living Wage Ordinance in Pasadena it was the City spending its own, and taxpayer, money, and putting sufficient funds toward keeping contractors harmless by allowing them to renegotiate contracts. Youth employees, library workers and operating companies were exempted,” said Mr. Little. “If the City of Pasadena were to devote funds to hold local businesses harmless, no one would object. But the reality is the City of Pasadena cannot afford the tens of millions of dollars it would cost to backfill the losses of the proposed minimum wage increase on our local businesses. A minimum wage increase would add $5000 to $8000 per year for each minimum wage employee when fully implemented.”The Pasadena Chamber solicited academic analysis of the proposed increase from two sources with no economic or political interest in Pasadena. Each study, conducted by graduates students at Johns Hopkins University and Boston College, and the peer review, concluded that transplanting the Los Angeles minimum wage model to Pasadena would result in decreased employment opportunities for minimum wage workers, significantly increased costs to local small businesses, and do little to address the underlying issue of poverty and wage inequality.The studies done for the Chamber cited research, experience in other municipalities and demographics in concluding a minimum wage increase would be detrimental to Pasadena, its citizens, workers and businesses. According to work done for the Chamber, “Pasadena and LA differ across a variety of economic indicators that signal that LA is a much more viable and realistic candidate for the $15 minimum wage than Pasadena, and that Pasadena cannot simply follow their minimum wage plan.”“… Pasadena residents are likely to bear the burden of a minimum wage hike through increased costs to businesses, while limitedly benefiting from the effects of increased wages due to the limited amount of workers that live in Pasadena, and the small amount of workers making less than $15,” according to the Boston College analysis.The Pasadena Chamber Board expressed concerns about employment opportunities for people at the low end of the wage scale. There was also discussion around the impact raising the minimum wage could have on opportunities for unskilled and entry-level employees and young people. Studies done for the Pasadena Chamber consistently point to negative impacts on Pasadena workers. According to one study, “While raising the minimum wage to $15 may not be significant for some businesses within the Pasadena Chamber (such as larger, high wage and high profit retaining firms) for many local, smaller businesses that are relatively dependent on labor, raising the minimum wage becomes very significant. In the non-profit sector, where there is less flexibility in shifting revenue due to reliance on grants or donations, layoffs will be inevitable in order to mitigate the higher labor costs.”Studies also show that increases in the minimum wage have additional impacts to local, small businesses. Payroll taxes, worker’s compensation insurance and other costs rise by a similar percentage.Analysis conducted for the Pasadena Chamber found that, “Intervening in how a small local business sets its wages can have large effects on the amount of employees it can continue to pay, as well as with other aspects of operation.”Again, from one of the Chamber analyses, “Because the majority (85%) of Pasadena residents work outside the city, businesses in the city will not be able to successfully pass higher labor costs onto consumers that are receiving a higher minimum wage. Thus… business will have two options – either change their structure of employment in order to keep up with the higher costs associated with labor, or move outside the city. Additionally, it is possible that since such a high percentage of Pasadena workers live outside Pasadena, they will receive these wage hikes from Pasadena, and they will pass off their increased earnings to other competing cities.”In a survey of Pasadena Chamber member companies, 58% said they will raise prices to compensate for the increase. 52.4% said they will reduce their workforce. 46.72% said they will reduce hours for their existing workforce. 20.49% said they will consider moving their business to a jurisdiction that is governed by the California minimum wage. “Our member survey is not scientific, but is does indicate how our members could be impacted and to what degree they will diminish employment opportunities to cope with an increased minimum wage,” said Mr. Little.Again, from a study conducted for the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, “Nearly all Pasadena low-wage jobs that have high labor costs are in retail, restaurants, hotels, education and health care… labor costs currently account for about 40% of a restaurants operating costs, and a minimum wage increase to just $13 per hour would represent an increase in labor costs to 60%… After the wage increases in 2007, 58% of restaurant operators increased menu prices and 41% reduced employee hours… “And, “…Additionally, low-skilled workers will be affected by this increase. Due to the costs associated with raising wages on small businesses, many Pasadena residents will lose their jobs, and according to existing literature on minimum wage policy, low-skilled workers will generally be the first to face layoffs.”From the second, independent analysis performed for the Pasadena Chamber by a Johns Hopkins graduate student, “Although consumers would seem to have greater purchasing power from an increased minimum wage, businesses will raise prices to help offset increased labor costs. This will serve to nullify consumers’ increased purchasing power, should these consumers even keep their jobs in the first place.“The study continues, “This includes general consumer goods, but also housing prices, as California’s cost of living continues to grow… coupled with price increases to offset increased labor costs, consumers may actually have reduced purchasing power when compared to before.”Studies done for the Pasadena Chamber indicate that opportunities will diminish for youth, unskilled and inexperienced workers, those with barriers to employment and immigrants. Statistics and evidence clearly show that each time the minimum wage has been increased on a federal, state or local level, youth employment numbers have plummeted.“The Pasadena Chamber would like to see a thoughtful, independent, comprehensive economic analysis performed specific to Pasadena and our economy,” said Mr. Little. “The City’s interest will be best served when our elected officials have data specific to local employment, businesses, non-profits and youth employment opportunities before they consider raising the local minimum wage.”The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Civic Association is a professional business organization. Since the earliest days of Pasadena, the Chamber has played a major role in the development of this internationally renowned city. Since 1888, when the organization was founded as the Board of Trade, the Chamber’s primary purpose has been the enhancement of both the business climate and the quality of life in Pasadena. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce serves more than 1400 members. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Darrel Done BusinessVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

In Memoriam: President George H.W. Bush

Bush, 41st President of the United States. While he is best remembered for his impact on America’s foreign policy, President Bush also played an important role in the passing of some key housing legislation that hasf left a lasting impact on the industry.As a young Congressman from Texas in 1968, he voted for the passage of the Fair Housing Act in a reversal on his earlier position on the Civil Rights Act, which he had famously opposed at that time.In an article that touched upon the event, Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post’s nonfiction book critic wrote, “He suffered through boos at a rally back home but insisted that “a man should not have a door slammed in his face because he is a Negro or speaks with a Latin American accent.” At the end of the event, he received a standing ovation, and nearly two decades later, he wrote that nothing else he’d experienced in public life matched the feeling from that evening.”After taking over the reins as President, Bush signed the Financial Institutions Reforms Act of 1989, which aimed to reform, recapitalize, and consolidate the Federal Deposit Insurance system, to enhance the regulatory and enforcement powers of federal financial institutions and regulatory agencies.His efforts for the housing industry also included the creation of an advisory commission under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for affordable housing to reduce regulations and red tape that added to the cost of housing, as well as privatization proposals for the public housing sector.President Bush and his son, President George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, are the second father-son pair to serve as president, following John Adams and John Quincy Adams.All federal agencies will be closed on Wednesday to observe it as a national day of mourning in remembrance of the 41st President.”The President has issued an Executive order to close Federal offices and excuse all Federal employees from duty for the scheduled workday on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, except those who, in the judgment of the head of the agency, cannot be excused for reasons of national security, defense, or other essential public business,” a statement by the U.S. Office of Personnel said.  Print This Post Previous: Gauging the GSEs’ NPL Performance Next: A Closer Look at Hispanic Homeownership The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Affordable Housing George Bush HOUSING HUD 2018-12-04 Radhika Ojha Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save In Memoriam: President George H.W.

Cllr Dessie Larkin indicated he couldn’t support that, saying it would be hypocritical to allow an application he opposes to be made.Officials stressed this is procedural, and a decision was deferred pending a report next month.Cllr Larkin says he will still oppose any plan to develop apartments.
