Loss of injured Andre De Grasse is a big blow to Canadian

first_imgLONDON – World medals. One last shot at Usain Bolt. Perhaps a Canadian record.A world championships that had held so much promise for Andre De Grasse went up in smoke during a light 60-metre run on Monday night.And on the eve of the opening round of the 100 metres, De Grasse’s coach Stuart McMillan talked about the opportunities lost.“I think when (the meet) actually gets going and Andre sees the final and sees those eight guys lining up and he’s not one of them, I think that’s when it’s really going to hit home,” McMillan said Thursday.But as much as the star sprinter’s withdrawal from the meet with a hamstring injury means personal heartbreak for the 22-year-old from Markham, Ont., it’s a big blow to a Canadian team that saw De Grasse win three of its six medals at the Rio Olympics, and for fans back home as well.“There’s two stories here: it’s Bolt’s last major championships, and then from a Canadian perspective, this was the opportunity for a Canadian boy to go out there and race him and potentially beat him in his last race.“So I think it’s going to be very disappointing for everybody — nobody more so than Andre.”All signs pointed to a solid world championships for De Grasse. He was undefeated in the 100 and 200 in his last four Diamond League meets. His sizzling, albeit wind-aided, 9.69 seconds in the 100 metres in Stockholm hinted the Canadian record of 9.84, set by Donovan Bailey in 1996 and tied by Bruny Surin in 1999, might not be long for this world.“We definitely didn’t see anything coming,” McMillan said of the injury. “We had a really good camp in Monaco, went to Spain for a couple of days, we had a good relay session in Spain, we came here on Sunday, went to (Mile End Stadium) here in London on Monday, did four or five block starts, looked very good, everything was really nice, finished off with two very easy 60s, and in the first 60 at 40 metres he pulled up.”They’d originally suspected the injury might just be cramping or tightness, but an ultrasound Tuesday showed a tear. His sponsor Puma then flew De Grasse to Munich to meet with Dr. Muller Wolfhart, who made the final diagnosis. De Grasse’s recovery is expected to take five to six weeks.There had been plenty of hype about a Bolt versus De Grasse showdown at the world championships, which McMillan said has been wearing on the young Canadian sprinter.“(But) in retrospect in a few weeks, when he looks back on this, this was his last opportunity to beat Bolt, I think that’s probably going to be the thing that haunts him the most,” McMillan said.In an interview on Thursday night with the CBC, De Grasse said that there’s always going to be ups and downs.“I’ve had a lot of great ups, from Pan Am Games to NCAAs, world championships, Olympics. Eventually something’s gotta happen and you’ve got to break a little and it’s always going to motivate me to get better,” he said. “I think this is a learning experience for myself and my whole team and we’re just going to get better from this. I think next year we’re going to come back stronger and everything is going to be what it was and even better.”In one of Rio’s most memorable moments, De Grasse pushed Bolt in their 200-metre semifinal, prompting a finger wag from the Jamaican superstar, who’ll retire after the world championships. Bolt hasn’t forgotten that race. When asked earlier this week to predict the world’s next great sprinter, Bolt said “The last guy I said was going to be great disrespected me.”General consensus was he was referring to De Grasse.“Probably the past five to eight years, Bolt’s been used to people rolling over for him, and when Andre didn’t do that in the semifinal in Rio last year, Andre definitely meant no disrespect by that, but I think Bolt maybe took it a little bit differently,” McMillan said. “And since then, I think the relationship has been slightly different.“But there’s absolutely zero disrespect from Andre to Usain, he’s got nothing but respect for him. Usain Bolt’s the best athlete who’s probably ever lived, and Andre will be the first to admit that.”De Grasse had a strong shot at gold in the 200 metres, which Bolt isn’t racing in London.Canada’s 4×100-metre relay team, which De Grasse anchored to bronze at last summer’s Olympics, also took a huge hit with his withdrawal.“It’s like if you took Donovan Bailey or Bruny Surin off the ’96 relay team (that won gold at the Atlanta Olympics),” McMillan said.De Grasse, whose mom Beverley and former coach Tony Sharpe were making the trip to London, is expected to remain in town until Monday or Tuesday and then likely head home to Toronto for treatment. The Puma CEO is taking him to watch Arsenal play Chelsea in Sunday’s Community Shield at Wembley Stadium.“He’s looking forward to that, getting away from the track world for at least a couple of hours,” McMillan said.The Canadian team, which has been on a roll since winning a record eight medals at the 2015 world championships, has to hope for strong performances from Damian Warner, the reigning silver medallist in the decathlon, world and Olympic high jump champion Derek Drouin, who’s been dealing with injuries, race walker Evan Dunfee, middle-distance runner Melissa Bishop, and Shawn Barber, the reigning world champion in the pole vault.De Grasse’s injury will keep him out of the Diamond League Finals — the 100 on Aug. 24 in Zurich and the 200 on Sept. 1 in Brussels. Each final came with a US$50,000 first-place prize.Looking long-term, McMillan believes the injury will be just a small blip on De Grasse’s career.“Andre’s career has just started. Really it’s the end of his second year of professional running. . . he could be running for another decade,” the coach said.“Probably on the downside of this, next year is, in track and field, an off year. It’s not for Canada because we’ve got the Commonwealth Games, so where Commonwealth was probably going to be something fun for him, maybe now it’s a little bit more serious.“I expect Andre comes out stronger from this, and we’re definitely going to learn, us as a team and me as a coach, I’m going to learn a lot from what’s gone on here in the last few days.”last_img read more

Energy East Pipeline review topics to be released may include GHG emissions

CALGARY — Canada’s national energy regulator is expected to release a list of topics later today to be considered in its review of the Energy East Pipeline which could for the first time include broad consideration of upstream and downstream emissions.The National Energy Board invited public input last spring on topics that should be considered during upcoming hearings, including the issue of greenhouse gas emissions related to increased consumption of oil from completion of the 4,500-kilometre conduit.The original Energy East review was derailed in September 2016 after members of the regulatory panel overseeing the hearings resigned amid questions about a potential conflict of interest.In January, the NEB invalidated nearly two years of decisions made by the previous panel, a setback for TransCanada’s (TSX:TRP) $15.7-billion development, and a new panel was appointed.Energy East as proposed would carry 1.1 million barrels of crude per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada and an export marine terminal in New Brunswick.The Energy East review is taking place at the same time that the government considers a sweeping overhaul of the NEB following a report in May that said the system is broken and the NEB should be split into two agencies. read more

Boris Johnsons odds of becoming prime minister slashed amid doubt over Theresa

first_imgMrs May called the election hoping to “strengthen her hand” in Brexit talks, but her authority would be hugely weakened if the predicted result proves correct. Emily Thornberry was pleased with her resultCredit:NIKLAS HALLE’N/AFP  Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary, went from a 4,796 majority to a narrow victory of just 346 votes. Emily Thornberry, Labour’s shadow foreign secretary, accused Mrs May of “hubris” in calling the election, saying: “I think we’re on a verge of a great result. I think she should go, because she has manifestly failed.” It was a difficult night for Theresa MayCredit:Toby Melville /Reuters Mrs May would be unable to form a coalition without the support of the Democratic Unionist Party, but this morning DUP leader Arlene  Foster said she did not favour a hard Brexit – an indication of the upheaval to come.Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May’s mandate “is lost votes and lost support … and I would have thought that was enough to go”.John McDonnell, at the same count as Mr Johnson, said Mrs May had made a big mistake in calling the General Election.Asked if she should resign, he said: “Increasingly now political commentators and by the sound of it, some Tory MPs now consider her position is now untenable.”I was expecting Boris Johnson to launch his leadership campaign tonight. But clearly not tonight, maybe tomorrow.”Some of her own MPs also suggested Mrs May should “consider her position”.Asked if Mrs May could remain as Tory leader, former Conservative minister Anna Soubry told the BBC: “That is a matter for her. It is bad. She is in a very difficult place.”She’s a remarkable and very talented woman and she doesn’t shy away from difficult decisions, but she now has to obviously consider her position.” Boris Johnson’s odds of being the next prime minister have been slashed from 66/1 to 5/1 as the election result cast doubt on Theresa May’s future.As the results rolled in, it appeared Mrs May’s election gamble had backfired, putting her Brexit plans in chaos as the Conservative majority was predicted to be wiped out.Odds on next leaderThe vote meant a hung parliament was the most likely outcome, leaving Mrs May’s premiership in serious doubt. After Mr Johnson retained his seat in Uxbridge and South Ruislip, he seemed in a hurry to leave the count at Brunel University.In his victory speech Mr Johnson said: “It is early to comment on the events unfolding tonight in this General Election. “But one this is absolutely clear, I think to all of us who have been elected as MPs tonight across our fantastic country, that is we have got to listen to our constituents and listen to their concerns.”Mr Johnson said nothing else about wider results of the night and how his party was performing, but thanked all involved in the election in the borough.Brexit negotiations, due to begin in  10 days, would have to be postponed if neither party is able to form a government, and senior Conservatives suggested another election might now have to be called. Ms Soubry made clear that Mrs May must take personal responsibility for a “dreadful” election campaign and a “deeply flawed” manifesto. David Gauke, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, hit back by saying Mrs May’s position “isn’t in question”.He said: “I don’t think there’s anyone else who could lead us into the negotiations so effectively. The idea that we should ignore that and navel-gaze would be a big mistake.“Theresa May continues to be the right person to lead that. She’s the right person for the job, clearly.“Given that we’ve got really important negotiations beginning in 10 days’ time, the responsibility of those of us who hope to be elected as Conservative MPs is to continue to support her.”Dr Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary, refused to be drawn when asked whether Mrs May should be forced to step down.He told the BBC: “It’s very early in the evening and I think we have to wait and see. We will see what happens in terms of the numbers of seats we get and the vote share before we make any assumptions.” Emily Thornberry Ms Thornberry said that if there was a hung parliament “what we will do is we will put forward a Budget we will put forward a Queen’s Speech and Labour MPs will support it and we will ask MPs from other parties to support it as well. If they do not, it will be for them to explain to their constituents why they have allowed a highly unpopular Conservative Government to carry on with the same old same old.” Theresa May Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. She added: “This is a very bad moment for the Conservative Party. We have to take stock and our leader needs to stake stock as well.”Mrs May was determined to fight on this morning, though she appeared to concede she would have to lead a coalition rather than a majority government.She said: “At this time, more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability and if the Conservative Party has won the most seats then it would be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that.”She said her “resolve” to lead the country through Brexit “is the same this morning as it has always been”.  But senior Tories cast doubt on whether Mrs May would still be Prime Minister by the end of today. Asked if she would “survive the day”, Sir Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s former director of communications, said: “It’s certainly looking increasingly difficult.”By the early hours, Conservative losses were racking up, with ministers among those losing their seats. Ben Gummer, the Cabinet Office minister who helped write the manifesto, lost to Labour in Ipswich.Jane Ellison, the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, was beaten by Labour in Battersea, forfeiting what had seemed a safe majority of 7,938.last_img read more

The bullet reportedly went through his hand and punctured his leg.The bandit then turned on Vyphuis who was attempting to flee on foot, but instead stumbled and lost her footing, crashing into a nearby gutter.“I was crying and throwing my bag at him and telling him I don’t have anything. Let him take my bag. I was begging for my life,” she said.At that point, the perpetrator reportedly picked up the woman’s handbag and hopped onto his bicycle, leaving the scene.The sobbing woman began running towards her neighbours’ doors, shouting for help but was met with no one opening their doors for her, except for her “life saver” Nicole Telford.“I called for help and no body open the door except for Ms Telford. She opened her door and asked if anyone was with me, and I said no. She tell me walk and come slowly and mek sure no one was following me.”The woman displaying her woundIt was only after Vyphuis reached the safety of Telford’s home that she realized she was covered in mud and blood, after reportedly being shot once to her hand. She however, could not recall when she was hit.The two women sought to contact the police as well as Vyphuis’ father.Shortly after, INews was told that a man identifying himself as another neighbour came knocking on Telford’s door, requesting that the women open up.Telford said ” he kept banging on the door and saying that he was a neighbour and we asking he which neighbour, identify yourself and he kept saying some neighbour from down the road with a yellow car and we said we don’t know anyone like that.”“He telling me to come for my bag and is not me he wanted and we refuse to open the door and start screaming hard.”The man subsequently went away, and almost an hour later, the police arrived at the scene informing Vyphuis that the directions which were given by her-in a distraught state- were hard to follow.The single mother was then treated at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre.She said she later learnt that her supervisor is in a critical state at the Georgetown Public Hospital.“They say he pressure high and they can’t operate on he and so. I’m so sorry. I’m so worried. Is the first time he drop me home and look what happen. I hope nothing happen to he,” she said in tears.Investigations are ongoing. read more

Toulon offered Warburton €850k a year after failing to land OBrien

first_imgThe WRU are not making any decisions. With them it’s all about control. They don’t look at the bigger picture. They couldn’t run a corner shop.”Toulon were successful in signing up Warburton’s club and international teammate Leigh Halfpenny for €600k a year. The reigning Heineken Cup champions have also signed up Wallaby captain Ben Mowen for next season.Wales captain Sam Warburton becomes first player to sign central contract‘Très content’ Sexton ready to lead Ireland’s Six Nations charge SAM WARBURTON’S AGENT has revealed his client was offered €850,000 a year by Toulon and Stade Francais before he eventually decided to remain in Wales.The Wales and Lions captain signed a central contract — the first of its kind — with the Welsh Rugby Union yesterday and is set to be released, free of charge, to his Cardiff Blues club next season. The flanker’s agent, Derwyn Jones, today spoke about the ground-breaking deal.Jones told Wales Online that his client was subjected to ‘uninformed vitriol’ on social media sites but his intention was always to remain in Wales. While not releasing an official annual salary figure for Warburton’s services, Jones said his new deal is a lot less than the money that was on offer from Top 14 clubs.Jones said Warburton had turned down €850k to sign for Stade, who are currently leading the Top 14. Toulon then approached the Welshman with a similar offer after openside Sean O’Brien decided to sign on with Leinster and Ireland until 2016. O’Brien started the Lions’ third Test against Australia after Warburton was ruled out with injury.Jones commented, “Sam was faced with the following two options regarding his playing future. Pursue interest from two teams in the Top 14 at twice his [UK] market value or sign a three-year employment contract with the WRU to stay in Wales at his market value.”Due to the ongoing state of flux in Welsh rugby, Jones added, “At this time however, due to the current fallout between the regions and the WRU, there are no cast iron guarantees that Sam will be able play for Cardiff next season.”Cardiff are frontrunners to get Warburton back in blue next season but their case to retain his playing services may not have been helped by comments made by their chairman, Peter Thomas, in The Rugby Paper. Thomas said, “The product we have in the Pro12 is not selling. To be blunt, we don’t have a product. We are in the wrong competition.last_img read more

Missing Doctor Who episodes recovered from private collector

first_imgIn the early days of broadcast television, it was very expensive to record everything that was broadcasted. Nowadays most studios record everything in triplicate, one on site and two backups, but in the early days tapes were wiped and recorded over and over to save money. As a result, a lot of programming from the early days of television has been lost. This has generally only been something that bothered specific groups of historians and culture collectors, but now, in the wake of the digital age, the desire to go back and watch those shows has reached an all time high.One such example is the global popularity of the rebooted BBC show Doctor Who. As more and more Whovians are drawn to the show, the number of people who want to watch every single episode of the now 32 combined seasons has exploded. Since the show’s inception in 1963, the BBC has lost 106 episodes due to them being written over, destroyed, or just plain lost. Now, it seems that two of the episodes that were once lost have been recovered.Former TV engineer Terry Burnett had two episodes of Doctor Who in his private collection that had been assumed lost by the BBC. During a conversation with the head of heritage at Radio Times, Ralph Montagu, it was discovered that these two episodes were not in the collection at the BBC. The two episodes were part of different stories from different Doctors entirely. “Airlock”, the third episode of a four part story called “Galaxy Four”, originally aired in 1965 with the first Doctor William Hartnell. The other episode, “The Underwater Menace”, aired in 1967 and starred the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.Currently, the BBC hasn’t announced when the videos will be made available to the public of if they will be available to watch them online, but clips of the episodes can be found here.last_img read more

Rodale Partners with Glam Media

first_imgThe partnership model forms the basis of Glam’s online strategy. It relies on vetted content publishers—bloggers and other, more “traditional” sources of content—to populate its women-oriented vertical channels in fashion, entertainment, family, and shopping, among others. Collectively, the channels attract 43 million monthly U.S. uniques, according to comScore, and 9.6 million for the Health channel alone.For the publisher, the deal is one born of syndication, where the content is shared with sites that provide access to a like-minded and, hopefully, statistically significant demo. It’s a strategy that has worked well for Rodale. In July, Jim Berra, SVP and GM of Rodale Interactive, told Circulation Management magazine that syndication tactics have contributed to more than 70 percent growth in monthly uniques.In this case, Rodale gets in-line and related link-backs, brand attributions and a revenue share on ads served up on Prevention or Women’s Health content pages.Going forward, Wasserman will see if the traffic will drive page views, conversions or both. “We’ll put direct marketing speak into the content in the in-line links and see what works,” she said. “If they end up driving subscriptions and sales of related products we’ll keep that going. If they’re driving lots of page views back to us we’ll optimize accordingly. With some partners we drive tons of traffic and a combination of magazine subscriptions and books, and other partners it’s just traffic.”As for audience, Prevention and Women’s Health target an18-49 year-old age bracket, broad enough to accommodate the demos that Glam provides on its health channel. “We talk to 18-49 year-olds. We know that’s a broad demo but the interest in living a healthy lifestyle has a stake in that range,” Wasserman said. “We recognized from some of the data that [Glam] gave us that there’s a huge interest amongst the Glam audience for more specific information around active healthy living content.” Rodale has become the latest major publisher to partner with online content network Glam Media. Women’s Health and Prevention will contribute branded articles, slide shows, and video to Glam’s new Health channel, which attracts 9.6 million unique visitors a month.“We started conversations with them about 8 months ago,” said Valerie Wasserman, vice president, strategic alliances at Rodale Interactive. “We talked to them about the types of content and programming experiences that they felt they would need in order to fill in some white space. The categories we will populate will be diet, fitness, nutrition and weight loss primarily.”RELATED VIDEO: Q+A with Glam’s Samir Aroralast_img read more

Facing Cataclysmic Changes in Sector Source Media Strengthens its Bench

first_imgManoni will attend quarterly board meetings with the rest of the executive team. He is not a voting board member. Another industry observer who spoke to FOLIO: suggested that Manoni’s corporate officer designation could be intended by Source Media owner Investcorp to signal that a succession plan is being created in the event that current CEO Jim Malkin left the company. According to O’Brien, Manoni was hired by Malkin to replace the outgoing head of the banking division. “Jim Malkin has no plans to leave SourceMedia and is excited to have such a wealth of complementary talent on his executive team,” she said.Manoni himself also dismissed that interpretation. “The banking sector is working through a period of cataclysmic change, and they feel my experience will be helpful,” he said. “I’m not aware of any plans for Jim to be leaving and in fact, he enjoys a solid relationship with Investcorp and the board members with whom I’ve interacted.”Manoni is one of a handful of b-to-b executives who formed companies in the last 12 to 18 months with the intent to partner with private equity firms and create acquisition rollup platforms. But, with the M&A climate troubled, those executives have had to adjust their plans. “The reality is that that transaction market is clearly challenged,” Manoni said. “I believe for the next 15 to 18 months we may see it tighten before it improves. The credit markets are really tight and that will hamper the ability to form a platform company. But this job at Source Media is going to be an intellectually stimulating, challenging and rewarding opportunity, and that’s why I selected it, irrespective of the deal market.” Source Media, the financial-services publishing giant, last month announced it reorganized into four strategic business groups. At the same time, in an innovative restructuring, the publisher of brands like American Banker and The Bond Buyer assigned its editors to “pools,” where they are used according to the group’s need, rather than any single specific brand. Yesterday, the company named a team to head each of those divisions, including—most notably—Doug Manoni, the ex-CEO of Wicks Business Information. Manoni will lead the banking division, which includes the flagship American Banker, a suite of mortgage publications, Cards&Payments and the soon-to-be launched Paymentssource.com. His title will be executive vice president and managing director. At Wicks, Manoni competed directly with Source Media, particularly the portfolio he now leads.The other newly-named division heads are Mike Dukmejian, leading the professional services division which includes Financial Planning, On Wall Street, Employee Benefits News and Accounting Today. He recently joined Source Media from the Fortune/Money Group. Also, Rob Whitaker becomes head of the business technology and securities division, which includes DM Review, Health Data Management and Traders. Mike Stanton, meanwhile, becomes head of the capital markets division, which comprises SourceMedia’s other flagship title The Bond Buyer, and Investment Dealers’ Digest, Asset Securitization Report and Mergers & Acquisitions Journal.Interestingly, Manoni is the only one of the four who carries the designation of corporate officer. It was unclear what duties would be included in that title, or why the other division heads do not have that same status. Source Media spokesperson Anne O’Brien said this in an e-mail: “Doug’s extensive experience in acquiring and selling information businesses means that he will also be active at a corporate level, hence the descriptor in the release.”last_img read more

Texas Senate Passes TwoYear Budget With Money For Property Tax Cuts —

first_img Share The Senate’s spending plan also contains a provision directing the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to cut costs by $900 million. If included in the final version signed by Gov. Greg Abbott, it would mark the sixth consecutive two-year budget to order the health commission to eke out savings from its operations.Nelson said that without cost-cutting measures, the health and human services portion of the budget was “going to continue to crowd out other priorities.”“We must continue looking for ways to have more efficient use of our limited resources,” she said.Emma Platoff, Aliyya Swaby and Shannon Najmabadi contributed to this report.This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.  Juan Figueroa/The Texas TribuneSenate Finance Chair Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, said the state funds set aside in the budget for property tax reform “will conform to whatever solution for tax relief is agreed to this session.”The Texas Senate on Tuesday approved a two-year, $248 billion spending plan that includes $2.7 billion for a nebulous goal of property tax “relief” — but with seven weeks left in the 2019 legislative session, the upper chamber has yet to rally behind a way to spend those funds.The Senate budget also includes a $6.3 billion boost for public schools — about $4 billion of which would increase teachers’ and librarians’ annual salaries by $5,000, with $2.3 billion set aside for unspecified aid to school districts. And it orders the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to cut Medicaid expenses by nearly $1 billion, without identifying a way of doing so.“We must take action this session to provide meaningful, lasting property tax relief,” said state Sen. Jane Nelson, a Flower Mound Republican and the Senate’s lead budget writer.The $2.7 billion in state funds set aside to pay for local property tax cuts “will conform to whatever solution for tax relief is agreed to this session,” she said.The Senate passed the two-year spending plan unanimously. The vote sets the stage for negotiations between the two chambers; the House unanimously approved its own version of a spending plan last month.Both chambers approved budgets with similar price tags, and both have agreed to pump an additional $9 billion in state funds into the public education portion of the budget. But crucial differences remain between the proposals favored by House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.The House backed a plan that would would lower school district tax rates statewide by 4 cents per $100 of taxable value, enough to reduce the annual property taxes paid by the owner of a $250,000 home by about $100. Texans in higher-tax school districts would see greater tax reductions under the proposal, with relief offered to both homeowners and business owners.The Senate, meanwhile, has offered up a host of property tax proposals that remain stalled at various stages of the legislative process. A bill by state Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, would increase the state’s homestead exemption, pending approval by voters. It would shave off $10,000 from a homeowner’s taxable value, reducing annual school district taxes by roughly $100, depending on local tax rates. That bill was left pending in committee.Another Bettencourt proposal would force a school district to hold an election if it seeks to increase the tax rate by more than 2.5 percent from one year to the next. That bill, whose cost is still unknown, according to state officials, has not yet been heard in committee.“There’s multiple permutations,” Bettencourt told The Texas Tribune last week, after the House passed its proposal to lower school district property tax rates as part of a massive public education overhaul. “That’s what’s called the legislative process.”While the Senate is aggressively pushing a proposal that would limit the growth of property tax revenues raised by cities and counties, it would have only minimal effects on the state budget compared with proposals that rein in school district taxes. That’s because the state shares a responsibility with local governments to pay for public schools. School district taxes make up the majority of total property tax revenues raised throughout Texas.Earlier Tuesday, Bonnen told a Lubbock talk-radio host there wasn’t much daylight between the two chambers on property taxes.“On this issue, I don’t think you’re going to see significant differential between the House and Senate,” Bonnen said. “The reality of it is we’re all pretty close on where we’re going.”Over roughly three hours, Senators touted a host of other priorities funded in their budget, including $230 million to maintain health benefits for retired teachers, $157 million to maintain graduate medical education opportunities for medical school graduates, and more than $1 billion across state agencies for cybersecurity and technological improvements.last_img read more

HandsOn Shadow of the Tomb Raider Proves Lara Croft is the Ultimate

first_img I got my first taste of Shadow of the Tomb Raider back during this year’s Tribeca Games festival. At the event, we were shown an extended demo that showcased the story and gameplay. At the time, I desperately wanted to play it. I am a massive fan of Tomb Raider, after all. Thankfully, I got my wish during E3 when I checked out the game in the NVIDIA meeting room. Spoiler warning: I really liked what I experienced.This demo ran on a PC with a GeForce 1080Ti graphics card. I played Rise of the Tomb Raider on my own PC which has a GTX 1080 card. I thought that was mind-blowing, but Shadow of the Tomb Raider running on a 1080Ti completely destroys it. The game looks absolutely stunning. The only drawback with the demo is that I had to play with a mouse and keyboard. I’ve only ever played Tomb Raider (and 99.9% of all games) with a controller. Despite that, I managed to complete the entire 20-minute long demo; even if it wasn’t as elegantly as I would have liked.Most of the playable parts of the demo took place within a labyrinthine cave. This meant I had to flex my platforming skills in order to progress. Even though I didn’t need to do so for the demo, I made sure to pick up items found on the ground and read all of the inscriptions on the walls. Basically, doing Tomb Raider-y things. The highlight of this section was going underwater where I had to watch out for falling rocks and giant eels. As a person who is afraid of being underwater (don’t judge me!), this was intense stuff! Despite my inexperience with mouse and keyboard, I found the controls smooth and precise.The demo ends with a massive firefight against a group of Trinity soldiers. Under normal circumstances, I would have no problems with a combat scenario like this. However, with a mouse and keyboard, it was exponentially more challenging. Thankfully, it’s now possible to end encounters by hiding from foes for long enough. I took my time and silently killed all of my enemies, shooting only when I absolutely had to. I knew the game places a bigger emphasis on stealth combat, but it was nice to experience this first hand.Going into further detail about stealth, I love how Lara can now better use the environment to hide and attack. I can see why this game takes place in a jungle. It opens up stealth in new and creative ways. Like before, Lara can conceal herself within bushes and massive leaves on the ground. She can also hide inside of plants which cover the sides of buildings. I didn’t experience this in the demo, but Lara can also cover herself in mud to make herself invisible to foes. Basically, you can live out your fantasy of being Arnold Schwarzenegger from Predator. Lara can also instill fear in foes similar to the way Batman does in the Arkham series. This is a Lara Croft you do not want to mess with.Story-wise, I didn’t see anything that wasn’t already shown during the Tribeca Games festival demo. As the developers have stated, this installment focuses more on Lara’s journey of finally becoming the “Tomb Raider.” Things won’t go smoothly, and we’ll see our hero possibly doing some decidedly unheroic things along the way. Is Lara Croft truly the “good guy” in this tale? The fact the game is even raising that type of question shows Eidos’ willingness to push boundaries with the character. If this demo is anything to go by, our hero is going to get tested in many ways.I’m a big fan of the current iteration of Tomb Raider so this demo has only gotten me more hyped than I already was. In 20 minutes, it showed me everything I wanted to see. Namely, story, combat, stealth, platforming, and puzzles. I didn’t get to face off against any land animals like panthers, but I suppose I can wait to play the full game to experience that. I’m sure there are even more gameplay surprises awaiting gamers, as well as narrative twists and turns. I can’t wait to see what Square-Enix and Eidos Interactive have in store for us.The only question I have now is: should I upgrade my graphics card to experience Shadow of the Tomb Raider in all of its eye-bleedingly awesome glory? I have until now and September 14 to make that decision, I suppose. If not, I can always play the game on Xbox One or PS4. I’m sure the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro versions of the game will look stunning as well. Whatever platform you play on, do yourself a favor and check out Shadow of the Tomb Raider.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Simon Belmont, King K.

Freddie Rental Housing Surges Past Homeownership Rates

Apartment rents entered an upward slope since stalling during the financial crisis.The outlook noted an earlier “”Census Bureau””:http://www.census.gov/ study that found buyers shifting to rental housing by about 1.4 million on the whole, a 4-percent rise in tenant households over the course of a year.[COLUMN_BREAK]As homeownership rates fell to 65.9 percent this year from 66.9 percent last year, reflecting a 1.5-percent decline, owner rates hit 21.9 percent following a 4.4-percent downward shift for owners below 25 years.Homeownership among owners between ages 25 and 29 fell to 34.7 percent, meanwhile, showing a 7-percent plunge.Freddie noted a sharp plunge in 10-year Treasury yields to 1.98 percent over September, a rock-bottom rate recorded by the “”Federal Reserve””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/ since it started observing their declines in the 1950s. The GSE said that the yields likely helped encourage new, low rates for multifamily loans over the past months.””New construction starts are slowly picking up and multifamily lending appears to be rising as well with this year’s origination volume stronger than 2010’s [sic],”” Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist with Freddie, said in a “”statement””:http://freddiemac.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=12329&item=70575.He attributed a balloon in originations to record-low mortgage rates, macroeconomic forces tugging apartment construction and rentals, and a pickup in activity among traditional lenders that stayed low during the financial crisis.The hopeful news in multifamily construction follows an “”earlier study””:https://themreport.com/articles/nahb-homebuilders-more-confident-despite-outlook-2011-10-18 by the “”National Association of Home Builders””:http://www.nahb.org/, which recorded a four-point rise in homebuilder confidence, the highest since April last year.The two reports contrast with a “”Fannie Mae””:http://www.fanniemae.com/portal/index.html outlook seen Monday that served up a “”50-percent chance””:https://themreport.com/articles/fannie-50-chance-us-economy-will-double-dip-by-2012-2011-10-17 for another U.S. recession by the end of 2012.

Conference issues SOS for Nicosia green line

first_imgEverything which can be prepared to open up the buffer zone along Nicosia’s green line has been done, now it is up to the public to ensure it is going to happen, speakers at a bicommunal conference said on Wednesday.“It never ceases to be a shocking image,” UN secretary-general`s special representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar, who is only too familiar with the buffer zone, said at the opening of the session at the Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) in Nicosia.Restoring the green line area, she added, should be appreciated well beyond technical repairs as the area is of great symbolic and geographic significance.The buildings along the green line, which has been largely abandoned since the 1960s and 70s, are now derelict. Many are now in ruins.Five years ago, the green line was included in Europa Nostra’s first annual list of the seven most endangered sites in Europe. The programme has so far selected 29 monuments in 19 countries which are in urgent need of restoration, thus drawing attention to the places that need it most.The Nicosia buffer zone is one of the bigger projects, as 265 buildings are involved.A bicommunal team has been working for years to prepare for its restoration, which becomes ever more urgent, since even in the five years after it was declared a heritage site much has deteriorated, said Androulla Vassiliou, vice president of Europa Nostra and moderator of the conference.“Without prompt coordinated action, the historical buildings in the buffer zone could become so ruined that they will not be able to be restored thus irrevocably destroying the heart of the city and its numerous heritage buildings,” the UN also warned in a recent report. Five years ago, the green line was included in Europa Nostra’s first annual list of the seven most endangered sites in EuropeThe objective is to help create conditions in the buffer zone to allow and encourage its eventual rehabilitation and use, being properly integrated into the adjacent urban areas.“The idea is not just to open another vertical checkpoint such as the one in Ledra street, but to create a horizontal space, that is to open Ermou street from the west to the east, thus bringing into existence what used to be in place before the 1960s in the area, a vibrant interaction and trade among Greek and Turkish Cypriots,” researcher and peace activist Ayla Gurel told participants at the seminar.Agni Petridou and Ali Guralp, heads of the Nicosia Master Plan, outlined what has been done in past years as part of the bicommunal plan for the capital. Due to their cooperation a group of enthusiastic Greek and Turkish Cypriots were able to carry out repairs in buildings in both the south and north, and took measures aimed at housing rehabilitation.As for the buffer zone, an info-box project was launched to raise awareness, and all the 265 buildings have now been measured, photographed, and it was determined which are the most difficult to fix, which need immediate attention if they are not to collapse, but also which ones are the ones deemed most valuable in terms of historical and social significance.“We have done a lot of work to prepare, but we are not able to get into the buffer zone,” Guralp explained. “We are waiting for the green light. Pressure will come from the public to do something about it.”“We are optimistic,” his Greek Cypriot counterpart Petridou added. “We prepared for years for the Ledra crossing to open, and then suddenly they gave us a week to open it.”You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
