Rabat – Moroccans are expected to welcome Eid Al Fitr on Monday, June 26, breaking the fast upon the 30th day of Ramadan, according to the astrological predictions of Rabat Society of Astronomy.The president of Rabat’s Society of Astronomy, Abdel-Hafiz Bani, has revealed that its astronomers are expecting the date of Eid al-Fitr to be on the sunset of the twenty-ninth day of the Hijri month.In an interview with Alyaoum 24, Bani explained that the speed of earth’s rotation and its orbit around the sun are constant, which is a determinant factor in astronomical calculations, the precise evaluation of sunrise and sunset timings in a precise manner, and the estimation of the dates of religious holidays. The scientist also pointed out that the movement of the moon around the Earth is also in a regular motion, which can help assist in accurate calculations of future dates and hours.To date, there are several programs to calculate these standards, including the Program of Accurate Schedules, which was developed by the engineer Mohammed Shawkat Odeh within the Islamic system of monitoring the crescent moon.
“I was raised and lived most of my life in Sri Lanka. I would like to appeal to all my Sri Lankan friends, not just the Maldivians in Sri Lanka, to support me at this time,” he said.Nasheed has called for fresh elections and demanded President Mohammed Waheed Hassan to step down and hand power to the speaker of the parliament for two months, until elections can be held though the next presidential poll is due only in November 2013.“The new government cannot form a proper cabinet. President Waheed does not have the support he needs even in parliament,” a defiant Mohammed Nasheed said. Nasheed also made a fervent appeal to the Sri Lankan community to support his cause and be with him at this time as his country faces a serious crisis. Speaking to The Sunday Leader yesterday the 42 year old former President also known as “Anni” said that the international community must act now before it is too late. The Maldives was in a state of turmoil last week after Nasheed was forced to resign as President following weeks of protests against his decision to sack Abdulla Mohamed the Chief Judge of the Criminal Court.The former President sustained head injuries when he and his supporters were attacked by police during a protest rally following his resignation. Television images later showed Nasheed being dragged away by the police. EXCLUSIVEBy Easwaran Rutnam “I will continue my fight in the Maldives. I will not give up. I cannot leave. My family is in Sri Lanka but I will not leave now,” Nasheed, the first democratically elected President in the Maldives, told The Sunday Leader.Nasheed’s family sought refuge in Sri Lanka and President Mahinda Rajapaksa later appealed to the New Maldivian President Mohammed Waheed Hassan to ensure the safety of Nasheed.“President Rajapaksa and I are very close friends and he has been making inquires about my safety and I am very grateful for that,” Nasheed said. Ousted Maldivian President Mohammad Nasheed says he will not seek asylum in Sri Lanka despite his family being here, but instead will continue his fight for democracy in his country. Waheed was the Vice President of the Maldives and took office as president following Nasheed’s resignation. Nasheed says he resigned under duress.“It was a coup. I was forced out of office. The police were outside and the military inside. I was deposed at gunpoint” Nasheed had told reporters last week.On Friday UN envoy Oscar Fernandez-Taranco met Nasheed and discussed the crisis in the Maldives. Asked about the discussion, Nasheed told The Sunday Leader that it was fruitful but reiterated that the international community must act now.He is appealing to the International Community to help restore democracy in the now turbulent and politically volatile archipelago.

In the latest installment in our documentary podcast series Ahead Of Their Time, we look at Charles Reep, the father of soccer analytics — and a guy who made one big, glaring mistake that changed the course of English soccer for the worse. But in order to arrive at his very wrong conclusion, he first had to radically transform the way people thought about consuming a soccer match.There was no Opta back in 1950, no Total Shots Ratio, no Expected Goals. But there was Reep, who took it upon himself to attend every Swindon Town F.C. match that season — sometimes with a miner’s helmet on his head to better illuminate his notes — and meticulously scribble down play-by-play diagrams of how everything went down. More than 60 years before player-tracking cameras became all the rage in pro sports, Reep was mapping out primitive spatial data the old-fashioned way, by hand.Poring over all the scraps of data he’d collected, Reep eventually came to a realization: Most goals in soccer come off of plays that were preceded by three passes or fewer. And in Reep’s mind, this basic truth of the game should dictate how teams play. The key to winning more matches seemed to be as simple as cutting down on your passing and possession time, and getting the ball downfield as quickly as possible instead. The long ball was Reep’s secret weapon.“Not more than three passes,” Reep admonished during a 1993 interview with the BBC. “If a team tries to play football and keeps it down to not more than three passes, it will have a much higher chance of winning matches. Passing for the sake of passing can be disastrous.”This was it: Maybe the first case in history of an actionable sports strategy derived from next-level data collection, such as it was. And Reep got more than a few important folks to listen to his ideas, too. It took him a few decades of preaching, but Reep’s recommended playing style was adopted to instant success by Wimbledon F.C. in the 1980s, and then reached the highest echelons of English soccer — channeled as it was through the combination of England manager Graham Taylor and Football Association coaching director Charles Hughes, each of whom believed in hoofing the ball up the pitch and chasing it down (and now seemed to have the data to back up their intuition). The long ball was suddenly England’s official footballing policy.The trouble was, Reep’s theory was based on a fatally flawed premise. As I wrote two years ago, when discussing Reep’s influence on soccer analytics:Reep’s mistake was to fixate on the percentage of goals generated by passing sequences of various lengths. Instead, he should have flipped things around, focusing on the probability that a given sequence would produce a goal. Yes, a large proportion of goals are generated on short possessions, but soccer is also fundamentally a game of short possessions and frequent turnovers. If you account for how often each sequence length occurs during the flow of play, of course more goals are going to come off of smaller sequences — after all, they’re easily the most common type of sequence. But that doesn’t mean a small sequence has a higher probability of leading to a goal.To the contrary, a team’s probability of scoring goes up as it strings together more successful passes. The implication of this statistical about-face is that maintaining possession is important in soccer. There’s a good relationship between a team’s time spent in control of the ball and its ability to generate shots on target, which in turn is hugely predictive of a team’s scoring rate and, consequently, its placement in the league table. While there’s less rhyme or reason to the rate at which teams convert those scoring chances into goals, modern analysis has ascertained that possession plays a big role in creating offensive opportunities, and that effective short passing — fueled largely by having pass targets move to soft spots in the defense before ever receiving the ball — is strongly associated with building and maintaining possession. It probably wasn’t entirely Reep’s fault when England flamed out at Euro 1992, or when they failed to qualify for the 1994 World Cup. But it couldn’t have helped that they were playing a misguided style, informed by well-meaning but faulty statistical principles.Ultimately, Reep was a cautionary tale of the damage that can be done when stats go wrong. But he was also light-years ahead of his time for tracking stats in the first place. Even though his conclusions were wrong, his instincts were right. Now, national and club teams across the globe pay for massive amounts of data that, in one way or another, come out of the tradition of soccer analytics that Charles Reep helped start. As far as legacies in the game go, you could do worse.This is part of our new podcast series “Ahead Of Their Time,” profiling players and managers in various sports who were underappreciated in their era. By Joe Sykes and Neil Paine More: Apple Podcasts | ESPN App | RSS Here at FiveThirtyEight, we tend to think statistics can add to our understanding of sports. (What a surprise!) From the more mature sabermetric movements of baseball and basketball to growing ones in soccer and hockey, evidence-based examination has led to new thoughts and ideas about the games we love.But there can also be a dark side to analytics. Among other potential pitfalls, interpreting the numbers incorrectly can lead to terrible decisions or encourage habits that are hard to break, particularly given the added weight that conclusions carry if they appear to emerge from hard data. For an example, look no further than the state of English soccer after it began using what appeared to be a scientific strategy.
So it is particularly poignant that the funeral and memorial service for Mary Parkinson, the eldest daughter of the late Tory grandee Cecil Parkinson, will be held within those very walls at St Columba’s Church in Knightsbridge this week. For more than 30 years, the meeting room within the imposing Grade II listed church was her sanctuary, the place where she could talk openly about her demons and where the strongest bonds with lifelong friends were formed. She had led a troubled life, spiralling into the depths of drug addiction and prostitution and struggling… Ms Parkinson, 57, was found dead at her home at the beginning of December, nearly two years after the death of the father she idolised.
Coming back from Iraq I just felt sad all the time, I lost a friend out there and I didn’t really grieve till I got backKevin Williams Mr Williams deployed to Iraq on Operation TELIC 9, which saw some of the toughest fighting and involved 46,000 personnel at its peak. He had signed up when he was 16 after being inspired by watching soldiers on television, but was discharged from the army after failing a drugs test aged 22. Kevin Williams, then aged 17, met the Queen over a decade agoCredit:Alpha Photo Press Agency Ltd. He was particularly horrified when a charity put out a television advert of an ex-soldier “drinking in a bar, and instead of a guy they replace him with a weapon with the safety catch off. It is totally unacceptable and a complete abuse of my cohort”. He felt the public perception of the military is: “You’re either a hero, or you’re broken. Ninety-five percent of us are in the middle.”Commenting after the death of Mr Williams, a MoD spokesman said: “We are committed to tackling the stigma of mental health, and have launched our mental health and wellbeing strategy to improve our mental health services.”We have spent £20 million this year on mental health services and encourage anyone who is suffering to come forward to access the care and help they deserve.”We take the mental health of our veterans extremely seriously and work tirelessly to ensure they receive the care they deserve.” Mr Williams believed he suffered from PTSD. He reportedly suffered flashbacks and relatives said he would often talk about the war. His sister Katherine said: “A loud noise could go off and then you could see his mind shut down. All he could talk about then was the war.”The ex-soldier was being helped by charity Combat Stress before his death. Sue Freeth, the charity’s chief executive, said “every veteran’s death is a tragedy, and our heartfelt condolences go out to Mr Williams’ family”.Provision of mental health support to veterans has come under fire recently from Johnny Mercer MP. Speaking to The Telegraph earlier this month, the former army officer said “Some charities have gone way too far in painting the picture of veterans in the UK for their own ends, to raise money. The youngest soldier sent to Iraq killed himself after the horrors of war left him feeling “pretty much useless”, an inquest has heard. The body of Kevin Williams, 29, who deployed on his 18th birthday, was discovered by police near his home in Basildon, Essex, in March.He had struggled to adjust to civilian life after he left the army seven years ago.Essex Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray said: “I have come to the very, very sad conclusion that Kevin intended to take his own life.”Speaking to his family, the Coroner added: “It’s quite clear he was much loved and that shines through by you being here.”Mr Williams’ sister, Jennifer Williams, revealed in a statement handed to the coroner that the suicide was not unexpected. “Kevin’s death was a shock to us all and despite the pain of a great loss, we feel it would not be classed as a surprise” she said. After leaving he found it difficult to adapt to civilian life and talked of joining the Foreign Legion as he missed combat.In a short documentary recorded before his death he said: “Returning to civilian life was a big shock. The skills I learnt especially being in the infantry regiment was all combat based. I was pretty much useless.”Coming back from Iraq I just felt sad all the time, I lost a friend out there and I didn’t really grieve till I got back. I didn’t know how to handle normal everyday tasks, having that soldier’s mentality it makes you think you are stronger than this.” “They do it because they are a business, because they want the money.” He accused charities of “specifically advocating” a narrative that “veterans are mad, bad and dangerous”.

OISIN MCCONVILLE HAS revealed that several high-profile GAA inter-county players have approached him for advice as they are ‘in serious bother’ with gambling problems.The former Armagh footballer has gone public with his own gambling issues in the past and was present yesterday for the release of the GAA and GPA’s guidelines on the subject.McConville believes the number of ‘problem gamblers’ will continue to grow.“I think we’re going to have more problem gamblers because we’re exposing people to it. There’s lots of high profile players who are in bother. Some of them would be in serious bother.“The accessibility and all that sort of thing is not really the issue. The big issue is that when people begin gambling, I don’t think they’re full armed with all the facts or pitfalls. With the GPA or counselling services, there is help out there and you can avail of it.”“It’s very easy to say, ‘stop’ but you need to have the general mechanisms there. They’re not going to say stop because I say it, they have to want it.“I was a 24/7 gambler, it was the first thing I thought about in the morning and the last thing I thought about at night. A lot of things have to change within your life but you have to go and get that initial help.”‘It is becoming a growing concern’ – GAA releases gambling guidelinesGambling addiction cost Offaly footballer €5k in a single night

The Publishers Information Bureau’s 2008 year-end report made it painfully official: Ad pages in consumer magazines took a massive blow last year, dropping 11.7 percent when compared to 2007. While some like Scholastic Parent & Child (28 percent) and Technology Review (21.5) saw significant ad page gains, the ailing financial market severely impacted niche publishers, with some of those serving the auto, business/finance, home and music industries taking the hardest hits.Many publishers are looking for new ways—from increasing accountability to regrouping product offerings—to meet advertiser expectations and capture their ad dollars in 2009. Increasing Accountability, ROIJohn Pledger, vice president and group publishing director of NewBay Media’s Music Play Network and Pro Audio Group, projects first quarter 2009 ad revenues for his groups will be down roughly 10 percent. “In the large-circulation guitar segment, our larger, more corporate advertisers with multi-brand/product lines that had typically run multiple insertions—at an appreciably high yield—are now pulling back to single insertions and, in some cases, going dark completely through the end of the year,” he says. In addition to asking for rate reductions, Pledger’s advertisers, like many others, are looking for more quantifiable buys. In turn, Pledger says he and his team are developing resources to help his clients sell, including a new online resource for both manufacturers and end users dedicated exclusively to music industry product listings and retail locations. The site will incorporate both peer and professional product reviews and product demo videos. “Manufacturers and retailers will have the opportunity to promote national or regional promotions, in-store events or other specials they have going on,” says Pledger. Increasing accountability also is a priority at Hachette Filipacchi Media’s Car and Driver and Road & Track. According to John Driscoll, vice president and group publisher, while total ad revenues are down overall, he’s seeing his advertisers increase their spend in areas other than print—namely online, events and research.“The auto industry is at the epicenter of the current financial crisis and our titles have been impacted because our core client base—car companies—are under extreme pressures right now,” Driscoll says. He and his team this year will work to expand the Jumpstart Automotive Media partnership, a sales program launched in June 2007 that includes more than 350 “measurable” digital products and brand extensions, including events, radio and CRM.Reexamining Product Grouping As one of the larger niche/enthusiast publishers, F+W Media hasn’t been immune to the ad revenue falloff. With ad revenues declining (starting most notably in September), F+W last fall underwent a company-wide reorganization, grouping its products not by channel but according to 15 “communities,” each led by a publisher/editorial director.“We believe this will help sales of all of our products as there are many cross-selling and also cross-content opportunities,” CEO David Nussbaum tells FOLIO:. “Although we are not forecasting much in the way of revenue growth, we believe that our margins will grow handsomely as we leverage the market expertise that was not resident in the vertical organization will be resident within communities.”Nussbaum is forecasting new “organic growth products in the several million dollar range.” Also as part of the new structure, F+W has e-commerce and offline marketing teams managing customer relationships and launching online stores for each community. “It’s clear that when the economy is difficult, people rely on their hobbies as a way to ‘escape,’” he says. “We believe the ad downturn we’re seeing is manageable.”
Ultrarunner Traci Falbo set both a world record and an American record for most distance covered indoors by a woman during a 48-hour race. Falbo clocked nearly 245 miles before collapsing on the track.Photo by Jeff Genova Photography.Download AudioIt was almost eleven at night on a Wednesday in the Alaska Dome last week and Willow, Alaska resident Dave Johnston had been running for nearly three days. Some of that time has was spent hunched over the toilet, puking. Multiday ultrarunning is extremely hard on athletes.“Stomach’s finally starting to feel better… now it’s just time to run,” Johnston says as he makes his way around the track.Johnston recovered from his rough start. By Friday, Johnston was in second place, trailing the leader by less than 20 miles.And the competition was stiff — a lot of the most prominent ultrarunners from throughout the world were logging laps at the Alaska Dome last week. Forty-eight hours into the event, Indiana-based runner Traci Falbo set a world record for most distance covered indoors during a 48-hr. run — she ran almost 243 miles before collapsing on the track.The six-day ultra event is called “Six Days in the Dome.” It’s just like it sounds: runners log as many miles as they can in six days. It sounds crazy. And it kind of is.“This is what we’ve chosen to do with our vacation time and our extra dollars,” says Ed Ettinghausen. He placed seventh overall.Ettinghausen was dressed like a jester, and he brought six different jester outfits to the race — one for each day. His wife and daughter were sleeping at one end of the track while he doggedly put one foot in front of the other with a smile on his face, bells bouncing atop his jester hat.There’s another guy here from Brazil who ran a hundred and forty-two miles on the first day of the race. You can tell people were equally impressed-slash-appalled by the feat. By Wednesday night, he was out of the race, sleeping on a high jump mattress to recover.David Johnston of Willow, Alaska was just one of three Alaskans to compete in “Six Days in the Dome.” He earned a reputation among other racers as “the smiley Alaska guy.”Photo by Jeff Genova Photography.One of the race organizers, Zane Holscher of North Carolina, says this motley crew of nearly 50 is actually one of the most elite packs of ultrarunners worldwide.“To do this on this track, day after day, and when you sleep you get so tight and then come out and have to run again. I can’t tell you the level of people we have here — mental toughness, physical toughness, it’s unbelieveable,” Holscher says.So how’d they end up in Alaska?“Turns out, there’s only a couple of facilities like this in all of North America with a 400m track indoors. Most are 200 or 300m.”The race organizers wanted an indoor, temperature-controlled, element-free track that would allow the runners to simply run.“And this turned out perfect because everyone in Alaska wants to be outside int he summer instead of summer, and we wanted to be inside. So kind of supply and demand. We were able to work out something great with the Dome, and I can’t say enough abvout how great this facility is,” Holscher adds.The Dome also doubled as a hotel for the race. At one end of the track runners set up camp. Sweaty clothes were draped over hurdles to dry. Athletes were curled up on high jump mats that double as beds.Ed Ettinghausen takes a break from the race at a make-shift camp at one end of the track. Ettinghausen runs to raise awareness on the importance of organ donors. You can find his website at https://www.facebook.com/groups/RunJesterRun/.Photo by Jeff Genova Photography.And the event even served its own food. Three meals a day.“Eggs, bacon, PopTarts, oatmeal, PopTarts… looks like they’re having PopTarts at every meal.”There’s even sushi on the menu plan.After six sleepless days and nights, the race finished on Sunday morning. Race organizer Joe Fejes of Atlanta, Georgia took first, having logged five-hundred and eighty miles. For the women, Liz Bauer logged 425 miles for the win, and sixth place overall. No runners broke the 600-mile goal the cash prize was contingent on.
Frank Sharp, 85, is a poet from Angoon. His poetry will be published in, “Rhymes and Rhythms,” by the Island Institute. (Emily Russell/KCAW)Rhymes and Rhythms– that’s the title of a new book of poems written by Angoon elder Frank Sharp. The book is scheduled for release this summer and will have an audio component to it, so readers can hear the poet his own work.Listen now[AUDIO TRANSCRIPT]The first time I meet Frank Sharp he’s shoveling gravel into a wheelbarrow.Frank is 85 years old. He’s a small guy, but he’s not frail. Underneath his navy coveralls it looks like he could still run a five-minute mile.“Believe it or not I could have been in the Olympics,” Frank said.I’m here to get his life story, Olympic bid and all. But, when I ask him for his life story he recites one of his poems instead.“I’ve been a soldier, sailor, killed my fellow man.Sought peace or religion, drugs every way you can.I’ve felt the eagerness of youth, frustration in the middle years.I’ve laughed a million laughs, shed a million tears.”Frank has written hundreds of poems like this one. He stores them in an old cigar box. They’re beautiful– even better when read by the poet himself. But Frank’s life– it was far from perfect.We head inside to his kitchen, which overlooks the ocean.“Do you want coffee or anything?” Frank offered. “We’ve got some banana bread.”There are miles of trails threaded through the forest on Frank Sharp’s property in Angoon. (Emily Russell/KCAW)With hot coffee in our hands, Frank tells me about his childhood in Angoon and Tenakee Springs. He told me about his father’s taste for whiskey and women.“My dad was a womanizer. I probably have 12 or 13 brothers and sisters,” Frank said. “I know of several already.”He told me about his mother’s many marriages. He even told me about how popular he was with German women when he was stationed there with the Air Force after World War II.“So that’s part of the story,” Frank said. “You said [to] tell my life. I’m telling you the truth.”Somewhere in between all that, Frank lived in Kansas City, where he got wrapped up in the wrong crowd.“I became a gangster there,” Frank admitted. “My name was Val Udo.”If that wasn’t enough risk for one lifetime, Frank has nearly died three times – the first when his boat sank in the Gulf of Alaska, the second when he had a massive heart, and the third just a couple of years ago when he was out hunting deer in the winter. At age 81.On the third day, he followed the sound of an Alaska Airlines flight west out of the woods.“It’s been quite a life,” Frank exclaimed. “I could go on for hours, because I told you, I’ve had so many adventures it’s unbelievable.”And a lot of those adventures are the subjects of the poems being bound into the book, “A Pioneer Alaskan’s Lifetime of Rhymes and Rhythms.” The book will be published by the Island Institute with links to audio, so you can actually hear Frank recite his own poetry.The gold plaque will be placed on a 400 lb rock Frank Sharp moved up outside of his home in Angoon. (Emily Russell/KCAW)“I’ve got a lot to do, yet, but I know my time is running out.My frosting’s wearing thin, I’m fighting a war I’ll never win.”But he keeps fighting– fixing up his home, maintaining the miles of walking trails on his property. I get the sense Frank Sharp has a hard time sitting still.“I’m still pushing the wheelbarrows up from the beach, though it’s killing me to do it,” Frank says.“Yeah, why do you do it?” I ask.“Because it’s there,” Frank replied.After a while, though, it’s clear there’s more to the story– like the part about his wife, Alice.“Oh, now you’ll really get me,” Frank’s voice starts to waver. “I’m already watered up.”Alice died in 2000 and the thought of her brings him to tears.“Why didn’t I tell her then what I can’t tell her now?” Frank asks himself.He’d tell her he loved her, that she was beautiful. That’s Frank’s biggest regret, so he tries to make up for that through his poetry and this property. He wants to be remembered for those things. He even moved a boulder to make that happen.“It weighs above 400 pounds and I brought it up and put it there because it was the only gold-looking rock on the beach,” Frank said.And on that gold-looking rock there will be a gold-colored plaque. It will be placed right in front of his house with a poem on it.“The Lord gave this man vision, strength and time to work this land,” Frank read off the plaque.It said his legacy lives on in this land. It lives on in people’s hearts, too.“Through his poems and stories, he led us on many a journey of laughter, fear, love and tears,” it said.In Rhymes and Rhythms, Frank Sharp lived.

Comments Share Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day About 30 naval aircraft, mostly helicopters, also participated. For the first time, Japan’s navy was joined by warships from the United States, Singapore and Australia. Representatives from more than 20 countries, including China, attended the event staged in waters south of Tokyo.___Associated Press writers Ian Mader in Beijing and Mari Yamaguchi in Tokyo contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The carrier was launched last month without aircraft or an accompanying battle group, and actual flight operations could be years away. But it is widely seen as a symbol of China’s ambitions to be a leading Asian naval power, especially as it faces sharpening territorial conflicts with Japan and other countries.Japan’s navy, meanwhile, marked its 60th anniversary with a major exercise on Sunday. Japan also plans to hold a joint exercise with the U.S. military later this year, reportedly using a scenario of taking a remote island back from a foreign intruder.Asked how China sees the reported scenario, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said, “To maintain the peace and stability of Asia-Pacific is beneficial to all sides.” He added: “Increasing tension is against the bigger trends of regional security, peace and the buildup of political and security trust. We reserve the right to take further action.”Defense Minister Morimoto declined to confirm the scenario or give other details.In Sunday’s exercise, about 40 ships _ including state-of-the-art destroyers, hovercraft able to launch assaults on rough coastlines and new conventionally powered submarines _ took part in Fleet Review 2012, the maritime equivalent of a military parade. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Top Stories 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Associated PressTOKYO (AP) – Japan and China are trading a new round of criticism after Japanese military aircraft spotted seven Chinese warships in waters off a southern island not far from a chain of isles at the center of a heated territory dispute. China said the ships were on a routine training mission.The Chinese ships were sighted Tuesday about 49 kilometers (30 miles) from the island of Yonaguni, in Japan’s Okinawa prefecture (state), according to Japan’s Defense Ministry. They were about 200 kilometers (125 miles) from a chain of small islands that have sparked a heated dispute between Japan and China. “The Chinese military is closely following the actions of the Japanese side and demands Japan halt all actions complicating or escalating the situation,” the ministry said in a short statement on its website.Japan angered China last month by nationalizing part of the chain of uninhabited East China Sea islands called Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese. The move sparked violent protests in China.Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said Tokyo has urged Beijing to “avoid any actions that would go counter to the mutual benefit.”Nearby Taiwan also claims the islands, which are uninhabited but surrounded by rich fishing grounds and possibly lucrative undersea energy deposits.China and Japan have recently stepped up naval activities in the area around Okinawa because of the dispute, but there have been no clashes between their warships, which have generally stayed away from the disputed islands themselves.Wary of missteps that could lead to a sudden escalation of tensions, the countries have instead sent less threatening coast guard ships. Over the past week, however, both have made a point of showing off their naval prowess.Chinese websites were abuzz Monday with photographs of navy pilots practicing touch-and-go landing exercises on China’s first aircraft carrier. It wasn’t clear when the pictures were taken, and they did not appear on the Defense Ministry’s website or in official media. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix How men can have a healthy 2019 The ships were believed to be returning to China after training in the Pacific. Japan’s Defense Ministry on Wednesday said the ships were not headed for the disputed islands, but said it was the first time the Chinese navy has been spotted using the narrow sea passage near Yonaguni.Defense Minister Satoshi Morimoto said Japan is monitoring the ships’ movement. Japan considers the area part of its contiguous waters, but it is not illegal for foreign vessels to transit them.It is not unusual for the Chinese navy to transit waters around Okinawa en route to the Pacific, but they usually go through wider straits. The ships included frigates, a guided missile destroyer, a supply ship and two submarine rescue vessels.Defense Ministry officials said the ships might have been trying to avoid an approaching typhoon.China’s Defense Ministry said the ships were on a scheduled cruising exercise and were acting in a manner that was “appropriate and legal.”Underscoring China’s sharper stance, it also protested the scrambling of a Japanese military plane in the direction of the disputed islands, calling that a “gross violation” of Chinese sovereign rights.
International multi-award winning Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji’s, Bebe Spa Sanctuary is in the awards spotlight again after receiving the prestigious Best Destination Spa 2011 award at the annual Australasian Spa Association (ASPA) Spas of Excellence Awards. Presented at a Gala Dinner on Friday night at the Outrigger Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, the award was presented in recognition of Bebe Spa Sanctuary’s excellence. Bebe Spa Sanctuary Manager, Praveena Dewan accepted the award on behalf of her team and said that the accolade is as much for the beautiful Coral Coast of Fiji as it is for Bebe and Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji. She said, ‘I’m enormously proud to accept this award on behalf of Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji and the Bebe team.

March 7, 2019 1,806 Views Buying a home is likely to get more affordable this spring as declining prices and mortgage rates give 6 percent more purchasing power while keeping monthly payments the same or a decrease of $62 per month in principal and interest on the average home, according to Black Knight’s latest Mortgage Monitor report for January.The report indicated that annual home price growth has slowed for 10 consecutive months falling from 6.8 percent year-over-year in February 2018 to 4.6 percent at the end of the year. As a result, the average value of a home has also decreased by $850 in December.The declining values also indicate that it would now take 22.2 percent of median income to purchase a home with a 20 percent down payment and a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.The falling rates are also boosting refinance of loans, the report indicated with 3.27 million homeowners with a mortgage likely to qualify for a refinance and reduce their current interest rate at least by 0.075 percent by doing so. The report noted that the recent rate declines, which fell to 4.35 percent in February 2019, could also result in increased cash out lending, which had softened last year as “equity utilization became more expensive in 2018.””While this is all welcome news for consumers heading into the spring home buying season, it remains to be seen whether recent rate declines and easing affordability will be enough to halt the deceleration in home price growth,” said Ben Graboske, President of Black Knight’s Data and Analytics Division.While home prices are still increasing year-over-year across the nation’s 100 largest markets, the report noted that home price appreciation is decelerating rapidly with the slowdown being felt most acutely on the West Coast.California’s annual home price appreciation declined from more than 10 percent in February 2018 to 3 percent in December. San Jose, Seattle, and San Francisco which were ranked first, third, and fourth respectively by annual home price appreciation in February 2018 have fallen to the bottom 25 percent of markets within the last 10 months.Click here to read the full report.

PRESS RELEASEDrakensburg, South Africa – Compac, part of TOMRA Food, has launched a new Field Research Unit which can be deployed directly into the field to research the industry’s most challenging fresh produce issues. The new state-of-the-art laboratory, which is equipped with a broad range of sophisticated analytical sensor technologies from across TOMRA, is the first of its kind for the fresh produce industry. The Field Research Unit was launched at the 10th Citrus Research International Symposium in Drakensburg, South Africa (August 19-22) and begins customer-based testing next week.Compac delivers packhouse automation systems for sorting fresh produce (fruits and vegetables) based on weight, size, shape, colour, surface blemishes and internal quality. Both Compac and TOMRA have research and sensor development centers in Europe and New Zealand, however there can be challenges accessing produce, particularly with shipping restrictions associated with infected and diseased produce.The unique advantage of the Field Research Unit (FRU) is that it can be deployed in market, close to the source of produce, and at any stage of the supply chain from the orchard through to the point-of-sale. The data collected can be analyzed to improve produce-sorting and decision making throughout the supply chain, as well as helping to drive new technology research and future product development.The FRU is equipped with benchtop spectrometers, hyperspectral imaging equipment, texture analysers, the new Compac Inspectra2 internal inspection system for fresh produce, and the TOMRA QVision optimized for protein, moisture and fat analysis. A converted 40-foot shipping container is used to facilitate easy transport to hotspots where fresh produce needs to be investigated.“Compac’s new project is a welcome initiative for the citrus industry and we look forward to being able to work with the unit in advancing this important technology within the citrus industry”, affirmed Dr. Sean Moore, IPM Portfolio Manager with Citrus Research International, during the event. The four-day CRI Symposium is a biennial gathering to share findings of recent research conducted on behalf of the southern African citrus industry and features an international mix of keynote speakers.Dean Barker, Director of Research & Development Projects at Compac, commented: “For our customers, the Field Research Unit has the unrivalled convenience of bringing a sophisticated test laboratory right to their front door. This is confirmation of Compac’s agile response to customers’ needs.”The demands of feeding the growing global population are driving the need to know more about each piece of produce as it is sorted in the packhouse and in repack centers. Advanced Compac sensors are already deployed in packhouses but measuring other attributes can further improve sorting to optimize productivity, reduce waste and maximize customer value.For more detailed information or to request on the Field Research Unit to investigate an issue, visit https://content.compacsort.com/request-a-demo.

monthly users WhatsApp has more than 1 billion and the two combined process more than 60 billion messages a day Traditional SMS texting peaked at about 20 billion messages per day according to
