Update: I assumed that eight or nine Pac-12 schools were for satellite camps. As it turns out, it was 11, with the assumed dissident being UCLA, according to Stewart Mandel. You can’t make this up.Larry Scott confirmed that 11 of the 12 Pac-12 schools did not support a satellite camp ban. Would not say the 12th, but, now you can guess.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) April 20, 2016Earlier: Two weeks ago, Washington State head coach Mike Leach said that most Pac-12 programs are for satellite camps, and that he didn’t know why the conference voted against it. According to Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott has an answer: UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero voted the wrong way.New twist in satellite camp ban. Pac-12 commish Larry Scott says their rep, Dan Guerrero, “did not vote the way he was supposed to vote.”— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) April 20, 2016It is unclear whether this was subterfuge by an athletic director whose school is in a talent rich city, or just a mistake, but it makes sense that most Pac-12 programs would want the chance to see players from other areas. While UCLA and USC have the advantage of being in Los Angeles, and Stanford has its own very unique recruiting ability, satellite camps make a ton of sense for pretty much every other program in the league.
Story Highlights Acting Chief Technical Director in the Ministry, Constance Trowers, said that geographic information system (GIS) technology is being utilised in several sectors, particularly in traffic management and road infrastructure works. The Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation is pleased with the increased use of geospatial technology locally.Acting Chief Technical Director in the Ministry, Constance Trowers, said that geographic information system (GIS) technology is being utilised in several sectors, particularly in traffic management and road infrastructure works.“The National Works Agency (NWA) has been employing GIS for cost-effective design and road repair as well as river training. So, too, has the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) in coordinating its buses on their routes and schedules,” she noted.She said further that China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) “has extensively employed geospatial technologies in the planning, routing, monitoring and maintenance of the various major corridor expansion projects currently being undertaken both within the Corporate Area and throughout Jamaica”.Ms. Trowers was speaking at the 10th GIS Business Executive Forum hosted by the National Spatial Data Management Division (NSDMD) of the Ministry, at The Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston on November 6.She said that the Ministry celebrates the gains made in the use of GIS and other geospatial technologies, and intends to use these as the foundation for greater benefits in the future, underscoring the Ministry’s commitment to economic growth.“The benefits of geospatial technology are all-encompassing to all sectors of society with limitless potential. These technologies must be at the forefront of our efforts as we seek to forge stronger partnerships between Government, citizens and the private sector in initiatives that will yield significant mutual benefits,” she said.Geospatial technology refers to all of the technology used to acquire, manipulate, and store geographic information. GIS is one form of geospatial technology. These technologies are used in the development of global positioning system (GPS) units, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), satellite imagery and vehicle navigation and tracking solutions, among others.The forum was part of activities for National Geography Awareness Week from November 6 to 16 under the theme ‘Geospatial Technologies: Driving Logistics and Transportation’.Other events include the 6th GIS Technical Seminar at the University of Technology (UTech) on November 8, a Thanksgiving Service at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church on November 11, the 16th National GIS Day Exposition at the University of the West Indies (UWI), and a GIS Symposium at the Caribbean Maritime University on November 16.The HEART Trust/NTA, the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) and the UWI have partnered with the Ministry to mark Geography Awareness Week.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed that his main motive in signing for Manchester United was to prove his “haters” wrong by conquering the Premier League.The Swedish striker arrived at Old Trafford in 2016 on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain and on the verge of becoming 35 years old.Due to this, questions were naturally raised over the kind of impact Ibrahimovic could make at United at that stage of his career.But the Swede quickly set about proving doubters wrong by netting 28 goals in 48 appearances for his debut campaign before suffering serious ligament damage in his right knee during a Europa League match in April 2017 against Anderlecht.Amid struggles to regain full fitness from the setback, Ibrahimovic left Old Trafford in February 2018 in favour of a move to MLS at LA Galaxy.“My challenge was, at the age I was, coming to England, where I had years of everybody was saying I wasn’t good enough,” Ibrahimovic told the club website.“I like those things because they trigger me. They give me adrenaline.“After three months, all of them were eating their own words. I needed new haters because all the old ones became my new fans!“Wherever I went before United, I won, and it was my pleasure that it happened again in England. Winning is in my DNA, I need to win – that’s my mentality. I hate losing. I’m not a bad loser, but I hate it and I love to win.“I said we would win and we won two big trophies. That speaks for itself.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“That whole first season at United was fantastic. Everything was. I really enjoyed it. The family was happy, everybody was happy, the club took care of me and made it really easy for me. I just needed to turn up, put on my football boots and perform.“When I came to United and I said I would conquer England, people were laughing at me. I wasn’t joking.”The one and only won the treble in his only full campaign at United in the Community Shield, Carabao Cup and the Europa League.And Ibrahimovic also paid tribute to the Red Devils’ supporters.He added: “The United fans are amazing. I’m not just saying that because I played for United. I know now because I’ve been on their side and I know the feeling they give you.“They really appreciated what I did and they were thankful. That is the best credit a player can get because when you do something and you get that response from the fans, it’s amazing.“They are 50 per cent of everything we do. Imagine if you played in empty stadiums… you would not play.“In Old Trafford, it was always full. Always. In every away game they always showed up, always supported.”Ibrahimovic managed 22 goals and seven assists in 26 MLS games for Galaxy in 2018 and had been strongly linked with a return to AC Milan in the January transfer window.LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 26: Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Manchester United celebrates victory with the trophy after during the EFL Cup Final between Manchester United and Southampton at Wembley Stadium on February 26, 2017 in London, England.

KUSI Newsroom
The Corps of Engineers began a 90-day public comment period March 1 for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for the project, which according to some is not a sufficient amount of time. The corps has received a number of requests to extend the 90-day period and is considering those, but so far it has not received a strong reason for an extension. On the other hand, critics of the project have criticized the substance of the review and say the process has been rushed. When the draft review was released last month, Pebble partnership CEO Tom Collier said the partnership saw “no significant environmental challenges that would preclude the project from getting a permit.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Proponents of the proposed copper mine near Bristol Bay testified on Monday during a House Resources Committee meeting. Biologist Daniel Schindler: “In a nutshell Alaskans should be dismayed; Alaska’s leaders should be outraged. The Army Corps of Engineers should be ashamed of themselves and embarrassed if they are going to put this environmental impact statement forward as a piece of credible science, it is not.” In December 2017, the Pebble Limited Partnership submitted its application with the corps to initiate permitting for a 20-year mine development plan for the Pebble Deposit. The project has a smaller footprint, has no major mine facilities in the Upper Talarik drainage, and will not use cyanide for secondary gold recovery, as originally planned. Mike Heatwole, VP Public Affairs, Pebble Partnership: “One of the big issues we’ve heard over the years was the issue of size, and could we do something that was smaller. That’s what we’ve brought forward.” The next phase is public review and comment period in order to inform and guide the development of the final EIS and record of decision for the project.

YouTube Now playing: Watch this: Mobile 0 2:43 Post a comment YouTube could soon ditch targeted ads for kids Tags YouTube may be putting an end to targeted ads on kids’ videos. Angela Lang/CNET YouTube will stop running targeted ads on videos aimed at kids, according to a Tuesday news report. Officials at the video sharing site are currently finalizing the plans, three people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. The US Federal Trade Commission began investigating whether YouTube violates children’s online privacy laws following calls from consumer privacy groups and politicians. The advocates asked the FTC to look into whether the site’s practices go against the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, or COPPA, a federal law regulating user data collection from sites with users under 13 years old.Google, YouTube’s parent company, reportedly reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with the FTC last month. The investigation found Google improperly collected children’s data and breached COPPA, according to a report by The Washington Post. It’s not clear whether YouTube’s decision to end targeted ads is because of the settlement, Bloomberg reports, and its plans to do so aren’t set in stone.Because targeted ads involve collecting information about a user, gearing them toward kids under age 13 without parental consent is essentially a violation of COPPA. YouTube’s decision to eliminate targeted ads could result in an immediate loss in ad sales, according to Bloomberg. YouTube has been criticized for failing to quickly take down videos featuring disturbing content aimed at children. It’s since cut off advertising revenue from inappropriate videos and added 10,000 content moderators to review objectionable content. YouTube also rolled out stronger parental controls, allowing adults to choose the videos and channels their kids can access. In addition, the company disabled comments on videos with minors and restricted younger minors from livestreaming without an adult. Google and the FTC declined to comment.

Kolkata: Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee lashed out at BJP once again on Wednesday, for destroying the social fabric of the country by dividing people on religious lines.While taking part in a road show in Bankura, Banerjee on Wednesday gave a clarion call to oust the saffron party from the Centre. He also urged the people to help Trinamool Congress win in all the 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state. Banerjee participated in the road show in favour of Trinamool Congress candidates Subrata Mukherjee and Shyamal Santra. Mukherjee is contesting the elections from the Bankura Lok Sabha seat, while Santra is fighting his electoral battle from Bishnupur. Both the candidates submitted their nominations on Wednesday.

Various small and medium scale businessmen are the ones hit worst by the hasty implementation of GST. They were forced to shut down their businesses. Our party had urged the Centre not to implement the GST in haste, as there is no proper infrastructure ready to cope with the situation,” Banerjee said. He also said that BJP is trying to divide people on the basis of their religion, in order to gain political advantage before the polls. “They are also differentiating between the Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in staterich and the poor.

People must throw them out in a democratic way. Those who seek votes in the name of our jawans have no moral right to come to power,” he said. Braving hot and humid condition, a huge number of people gathered at Bishnupur, where the Trinamool Youth Congress chief took out the road show. Banerjee, an outgoing Trinamool Congress MP from Diamond Harbour, is contesting the ongoing Lok Sabha elections from the same seat.
