How Roy Keane and Martin ONeill restored our faith in Irish football

first_imgTHIS TIME LAST year, morale surrounding the Ireland football team was arguably at an all-time low.2012 was an unequivocal disaster, with catastrophe after catastrophe reminding people how steeply Irish football has fallen (and other countries have risen) since the not-so-distant days when the team could go to a World Cup and actually enjoy the majority of possession against Spain. Ireland lost four and won two of the six competitive games they played that year, with the victories coming against minnows of international football in Kazakhstan and the Faroe Islands. In short, there was virtually nothing to get excited about — a factor underlined by the aggressively unattractive style of football the then-Ireland manager favoured.The standard of the opposition was undoubtedly very high, but it wasn’t the losses in themselves that were so dispiriting. Few people seriously expected Ireland to beat Spain, Croatia, Italy or Germany, but it was the manner of the performances that was so egregious. The complete lack of tactical nous, intelligence and fight that characterised the team’s displays in any game that mattered offended those who insisted the side could be more than just whipping boys for the bigger nations. Whereas the Irish team had also failed to reach the 2010 World Cup under Trap, the conviction with which the team took on France in the second leg of that memorable qualification play-off had generated false optimism for the future.Moreover, Ireland had waited ten years to qualify for a major tournament, yet Euro 2012 felt so downbeat that the average fan would be forgiven for wondering why they even bothered persevering in the first place.The year then ended with a 1-0 friendly loss to Greece. Remember that game? Neither do I — and such reactions were growing increasingly prevalent, as the team and subsequently, the games in which they participated, were disconcertingly deprived of any palpable identity.Consequently, in conjunction with the onset of 2013, the question on many people’s lips was not ‘could we qualify’ but ‘should we care’. After all, the only footballing sin greater than playing in an impossibly dull style is failing to achieve positive results while doing so. The dynamic duo’s first match in charge was a game against Latvia that Ireland won in a relatively impressive fashion, notwithstanding the opposition’s patent lack of quality and questionable motivation levels. Yet just as significant as the performance was the rapturous atmosphere it conjured. Save perhaps the pre-Euro 2012 match against Bosnia, it is hard to recall any home friendly in recent memory that created so much interest and enthusiasm among the supporters — and it could largely be attributed to that one decision to simply appoint these two legends of Irish football to oversee the team’s fortunes.Granted, it’s invariably natural at the end of every year to maintain a positive outlook and hope that the next 12 months will be better, even in the most depressing of circumstances, and especially when it coincides with the onset of a new managerial team. On the other hand though, there remains a lack of any real evidence to support the contention that Keane and O’Neill will improve upon Trapattoni and Tardelli’s modest achievements. Ireland’s subsequent concession of a last-minute David Alaba goal, as they drew 2-2 with Austria, felt like the symbolic moment in which any hope of the team reaching Brazil ended. Even if Trap’s side’s chances weren’t definitively killed until the return fixture against Alaba and co, it served as the demoralising blow from which Ireland were unlikely to recover.Amid the match’s concluding stages, as the team led 2-1 with seven minutes plus stoppage time remaining, Trap opted to bring on Paul Green to replace Shane Long, when most pundits were demanding the introduction of the only player at the manager’s disposal that night capable of keeping the ball — Wes Hoolahan. The decision epitomised the Italian’s innate conservatism, which had worked to a point in the past, yet the luck that Ireland had enjoyed in places like Bari and Moscow previously under the Italian eluded the side on this occasion, with Trap’s already questionable methods severely criticised as a result.YouTube credit: IrishSoccerTeamNewsHis subsequent now-infamous “we are Ireland” post-match interview (see above) came across as a brutal admission of the situation’s hopelessness, when an uplifting rallying cry was imperative. The Italian had generally been praised for the assured and genial manner in which he had dealt with the press, but now that his best-laid plans were finally beginning to fall apart, his previously smooth PR skills were also starting to erode.From thereon in, with Trap finally looking as pessimistic as his playing style, failure felt inevitable, and it was no significant surprise when the team conformed to the incredibly widespread negative expectations with which they were becoming almost irrevocably associated.Thereafter, following Trapattoni’s swift exit owing to the Irish side’s unequivocal failure, caretaker boss Noel King enjoyed a brief but memorable and somewhat fiery tenure in charge. During this time, King at least managed to persuade some of the players that Trap had ostracised to return to the squad, but the results and performances were equally unremarkable for the duration of this fleeting period.The subsequent appointment of Roy Keane and Martin O’Neill, however, was as shocking as it was inspired. Most other realistic alternatives would have been greeted with a yawn and abiding grumbling from skeptics convinced that the team was no longer good enough to properly compete at international level, such was the level of despondency that five years of Trap had prompted.Nevertheless, the decision to pick a respected coach such as O’Neill, alongside arguably both Ireland’s greatest and most talked-about player ever, ensured an immediate feel-good factor greeted their arrival, as any lingering cynicism from the previous regime was drowned out by the wave of euphoria in reaction to this unexpected news. Surely, nonetheless, the nation can be forgiven for ostensibly overreacting as if it were the second coming — excitement, in relation to the team, had been at a premium for over half a decade, after all. Yet in spite of the feeling of mass apathy that the team routinely inspired, the year actually began in a somewhat promising fashion. The 2-0 friendly victory over Poland, in which Wes Hoolahan was finally given a chance under Trapattoni (the Norwich midfielder rewarded him in turn by scoring the team’s second goal), was at least a minor case in point.Hoolahan then again featured as a substitute against Sweden away, as Ireland secured a credible 0-0 draw and arguably deserved better on the basis of their encouraging performance. Nevertheless, this was the last real hint of (typically short-lived) optimism under the Italian. However, just as this time last year, Irish fans will have hoped that the 6-1 loss to Germany was just an aberration, and that qualification for Brazil was still an eminent possibility, this year fans will be eager to overlook how ordinary the team appeared against any semi-decent opposition in the past few months and remain hopeful that MONKeano can renew the spirit and results of the side’s glory years.With 23 places now available at the next Euros (in addition to France, who automatically qualify as hosts), the least Ireland should therefore be hoping for is qualification and an avoidance of the type of humiliation suffered in the summer of 2012 — especially by the standards of their two notoriously perfectionist coaches. Fans, naturally, will accordingly be optimistic that nothing will happen to change this perception in 2014.Is such a mindset a little overly expectant? Possibly, but with Keane and O’Neill — two men who have spent the majority of their careers overachieving — at the helm, we can afford to dream a little, can’t we?13 of the biggest football bloopers from this year>How Jose Mourinho and Mario Rosenstock pranked Damien Duff>last_img read more

Sony Ericsson ne veut pas de Windows Phone 7

first_imgSony Ericsson ne veut pas de Windows Phone 7Sony Ericsson a confirmé qu’il ne souhaitait pas s’associer à Microsoft pour animer les smartphones Windows Phone 7. Le constructeur suédo-japonais refuse la standardisation voulue par Microsoft.Sony Ericsson n’envisage pas de travailler avec Microsoft concernant Windows Phone 7, tout comme il ne sortira pas de tablette. Le constructeur de mobiles préfère se tourner vers Android, l’OS de Google. Interrogé par Les Echos, Pierre Perron, patron de la branche française du groupe, a expliqué : “L’approche verticale de Microsoft ne nous permet pas de nous différencier. Avec Windows Phone 7, nous courrons un risque de standardisation de nos smartphones. Nous serions obligé de nous battre seulement sur le design et le prix, ce que nous voulons éviter.” Microsoft empêche toute retouche à l’interface de ses logiciels, ce qui empêche les smartphones de marquer leurs différences. Concernant l’entrée de l’entreprise sur le marché des tablettes, le son de cloche est le même. David Mignot, directeur marketing de Sony Ericsson France, réfute cette idée : “Lancer une tablette aujourd’hui, c’est peu ou prou copier l’iPad d’Apple. Ce n’est pas notre ambition. Aujourd’hui, pour créer de la valeur, il faut se différencier mais actuellement nous n’avons pas identifié de différenciations fortes.” Cette stratégie s’avèrera-t-elle payante?Le 23 novembre 2010 à 11:56 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Clark County works to fill pair of vacancies

first_imgThree weeks after Clark County’s economic development director resigned for a lower-paying position in Portland, commissioners are taking steps to fill the void.At stake is a position responsible for some of the widest-ranging duties within the county, including its primary job of marketing the county as a place for businesses.But first, there are questions commissioners want answered. They include whether the county should hire internally or expand its search to consider outside candidates. On top of that, there’s also the question of whether the position would also perform the duties of the county’s railroad coordinator. The county’s railroad coordinator position is already filled by Jeff Swanson.With the duties of the railroad coordinator tied into it, the new economic development director would also be responsible for managing the county’s 33-mile short-line railroad.At a Wednesday board time meeting, Commissioner Tom Mielke expressed some concerns about making the position’s duties too expansive.“You could put us into a corner where we have nobody qualified if we ever advertised for this job,” he said. “It’s narrowed down with such high qualifications that I don’t think anybody exists with all of these abilities.”last_img read more

Weston family pleads for driver responsible for killing cyclist to come forward

first_imgWESTON, FLA. (WSVN) – – A Weston family who should have been celebrating the new year are now preparing a funeral after their father and husband was struck and killed by a vehicle that fled the scene on New Year’s day.Now, these relatives are pleading for the driver who hit him to do the right thing and turn themselves in.On Tuesday, Broward Sheriff’s Office officials met with the Mohr family, just two days after 50-year-old Christopher Mohr was fatally struck from behind while cycling in the bike lane on State Road 84, one mile east of the Indian Trace intersection, at around 7:40 a.m.Investigators said the motorist then sped away.BSO officers brought together evidence they collected from the scene of what they think are pieces of the vehicle responsible. BSO officials believe the pieces recovered are parts of the fender and the passenger-side windshield of an older, but no too old, white model car.“[The car] should have passenger-side damage, mostly to the area of the front right headlight or the passenger-side headlight,” said BSO Detective Donnard Huneke, “possibly to the windshield and hood and possibly to the passenger-side mirror.”According to BSO, a car at least partially fitting that description was discovered at a nearby shopping center on Monday. However, investigators believe the driver is still out there unidentified. “We have found some inconsistencies with the crash scene,” added Huneke, “so, at this time, the suspect vehicle might be out there.”Speaking from the family’s home on Monday, the victim’s widow, Robin Mohr, said her husband, an avid bicyclist, was riding a route he had taken often. “He was in the bike lane, riding where he’s ridden hundreds of times before,” she said.But Christopher would never come home.“I keep expecting my husband to walk through the door,” said the widow. “I keep hearing his voice, so it’s very surreal. I feel like everyone is coming for a party, and I have to keep remembering they’re coming for my husband’s funeral.”Their son, Alex Mohr, although grieving, has accepted his newfound responsibility in the household.“If you would have asked me three days ago how would you handle it if your father passed away, I wouldn’t really expect myself to be doing it like this,” said the son. “But I think it’s more that when I do get really sad, I kinda think, ‘My mom’s here and so is my sister.’ Now, I have to step up to the plate and be there for them. It’s more than just me.”Mohr’s father had been biking semi-professionally his entire life. Those who rode with victim have planned a memorial bike ride in his honor, late Tuesday evening, to commence sometime around 6:45 or 7 p.m.Though police have recovered some clues, they still need help cracking the case.“It needs to be brought to justice,” said their son. “I don’t know how you could do that.”If you have any information on this hit-and-run, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Bridging Print and Mobile

first_imgMobile is viewed today in much the same way as online was a few years ago: a huge opportunity that no one really knows what to do with yet. “Most content businesses now have some sort of digital business. I think soon they will all also be building mobile,” says Peter Ezersky, managing principal at Quadrangle Group LLC. “Right now, the only ones making money from mobile are the carriers. Until a couple big players figure this out, it won’t happen.”Now some mobile services are emerging to specifically help publishers figure it out, offering new revenue streams as well as renewed relevance for their core print products. Digital magazine vendor Nxtbook and software developer Primiro have teamed up to offer Nxttext, a service that enables mobile users to view print articles and share them with other mobile viewers, while allowing publishers to gather e-mails for subscription prospects and send out advertising. Nxtbook is an investor in Primiro and serves as the exclusive partner for the U.S. magazine market.How It WorksThe publisher assigns a “Nxttext Callout”—a content code within an article. The reader then texts 88411 with the content code and the article is sent to the reader’s e-mail as well as an online Primiro library. “If I grab something, it knows who I am and creates a little library for me which is used as the control mechanism for my account,” says Primiro CEO Darren Scott. “You can add additional phones and e-mails to an account. It’s also a social bookmarking system where people can start discussing the content.” Publishers can send links back to Web sites, digital editions, streaming videos and PDFs. Ads can include similar codes which readers text to receive more product or promotion details. Every user must register demographic information but they don’t have to do it before requesting their first Nxttext message or sharing articles with other non-registered users. Readers can keep requesting content but the service will remind them to go back online for confirmation. Publishers Prepare TestsEarly adopters like Meredith and Hachette are turning to Nxttext as a long-tail circulation and editorial tool, something which European publishers have had success with (in Norway, 15 percent of consumers in a promo were not subscribers, yet 25 percent of those ended up taking a subscription offer). “We’re looking at it as way to gather e-mail addresses by allowing people to get reprints of articles in the magazine,” says Dave Ball, vice president of consumer marketing at Meredith. “Based on that, if we can get their e-mail address, we will try to convert them into a subscriber. The thought was, if you’re already a subscriber, it’s a service to you but if you’re a public place reader, it’s a way to try to identify some of those folks and reach out to them.”It’s also a way for publishers to attract a younger readership. “This is the way younger people interact,” says Ball. “As a lot of our magazines skew a little older, this is a way to get the younger demographic to sample our magazines.” Hachette is planning a test of Nxttext in the near future. ”From a marketing/circulation point of view, being able to get e-mail from an engaged reader is very important because of the high acquisition costs to get new subscribers,” says vice president of circulation and business strategy Phil Ketonis. “In a declining newsstand environment, we need to support the rate base and it’s critical to get new subscribers at low acquisition costs.” Hachette is still determining the scope of the test and Ketonis says it will likely focus on offering content like recipes or fitness tips. Bonnier is intrigued but trying to determine whether the service merits a closer look. “It’s a funny decision because it falls between the silos of a normal publishing company—editorial, advertising and consumer marketing are all involved” says consumer marketing director Bob Cohn. “Our next step is convincing ourselves that it’s something that will produce enough e-mail addresses or enough contacts that it’s worth testing, and finding the money in a tight budget to test it.” Nxttext includes a one time set-up fee that ranges from $999 to $4,900 and a fixed monthly support/maintenance fee of $299-$999, depending on circulation size. Other costs are based on subscriptions sold, e-mail address generation and the tagging of advertiser content.last_img read more

Texas Executes Erick Davila Who Killed Two People Including A 5YearOld Girl

first_img Share Photo via Texas Department of Criminal Justice Death row inmate Erick Davila.A year ago, his death penalty case was being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. On Wednesday evening, he was put to death by the state of Texas.Erick Davila, 31, was executed after a relatively short nine years on Texas’ death row. He was convicted in 2009 for repeatedly shooting at a Fort Worth house hosting a child’s birthday party, killing the mother and 5-year-old daughter of Jerry Stevenson, whom Davila claims was a rival gang member. In his last appeal, Davila asked the high court to stop his execution based on new claims of drug use during the murders and a conflict of interest with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office.Minutes before his scheduled 6 p.m. death, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his final appeal, and he was strapped to a gurney in a mint green room, where he spoke his final words as Stevenson and other family members of the victim watched through a glass pane.“Yes, I would like to say nephew, it burns, huh,” he said. “You know, I might have lost the fight, but I’m still a soldier. I still love you all. To my supporters and family, y’all hold it down. Ten Toes down right. That’s all.”He was then injected with a lethal dose of pentobarbital and was pronounced dead at 6:31 p.m.Davila fought his sentence to the end, maintaining to the courts that he only intended to kill his rival, Jerry Stevenson, not the man’s daughter, Queshawn, or her grandmother, 47-year-old Annette. It was an important distinction because the jury had to find that Davila intended to kill multiple people to be eligible for the death penalty. Prosecutors argued Davila always intended to kill more than his rival, pointing to his statement to police that he was trying to get “the guys on the porch” and “the fat dude.”“I wasn’t aiming at the kids or the woman and don’t know where the woman came from,” Davila said in a written statement to police, according to court documents. “I don’t know the fat dudes name, but I know what he looks like, so I recognized his face.”It was the question of intent that eventually led Davila’s case to the nation’s high court last April on a legal technicality. His current lawyer, Seth Kretzer, argued that when jurors at his trial questioned if they needed to decide whether Davila intended to kill his two victims or if he intended to kill someone and in the process fatally shot two others, the judge — who is now the Tarrant County criminal district attorney — erred in her answer.The judge responded that Davila would be responsible for a crime if the only difference between what happened and what he wanted was that a different person was hurt — without affirming to them that Davila must have intended to kill more than one person. The jury found him guilty.Though his lawyer at trial objected to the judge’s instructions, the objection was overruled, and the issue wasn’t brought up again in Davila’s state appeals, which Kretzer said was bad lawyering. The question that landed in front of the U.S. Supreme Court was whether Kretzer could raise the jury instruction in federal courts because of ineffective appellate lawyers.Generally, federal courts can’t take up issues that could have been raised in state courts, but there is an exception when the trial lawyer is found to have been ineffective. But in Davila’s case, it was the appellate lawyers, not the trial lawyer, who were being accused of dropping the ball. In June, the justices decided in a split ruling that the two types of attorneys can’t be treated equally, and Davila became eligible for execution.He didn’t stop fighting.After Tarrant County set an execution date, Davila filed new appeals. In his last petition, Kretzer asked the U.S. Supreme Court to delay the execution because he recently discovered that Davila’s original co-defendant told the judge that Davila was “heavily intoxicated” during the shooting — a fact that was apparently unknown by defense attorneys.Kretzer wanted time to further develop claims that the prosecution may have failed to disclose information about Davila being on drugs at the time of the murders.“While intoxication is not a defense to murder, it would have been an issue that would have been relevant to mitigation and sentencing,” Kretzer said Tuesday, indicating a jury could have been persuaded to hand down the lesser sentence of life in prison without parole if it was brought up at trial.The Texas Attorney General’s office argued against the appeal in its court filing, saying that Davila himself would obviously be aware of his own intoxication, so it was information the defense could have found earlier, disqualifying it from court review now. The courts agreed with Texas, denying Davila’s motions.Davila’s team had also asked the nation’s high court to remove the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office from his case since the criminal district attorney, Sharen Wilson, was the judge who oversaw his trial, and his former state appellate attorney now works for her.“The clients should obviously be able to trust their lawyers,” Kretzer said. “You can’t get confidential information from your client and then turn around and use it against him.”A spokeswoman for Wilson said Tuesday she couldn’t comment on the pending case, but she pointed to the office’s court briefings, which indicates Davila’s previous appellate attorney is not allowed to have any involvement in the case. The state also argues that Wilson’s minimal action in the case does not violate Davila’s due process rights.“Davila presents no direct authority mandating the office’s removal from their Texas statutory duty to represent the State, especially when the action complained of is the ministerial act of setting an execution date,” wrote Texas Assistant Attorney General Katherine Hayes in the state’s briefing to the Supreme Court.Davila’s execution marks the fifth execution in Texas this year and the ninth in the country.last_img read more

Novel AntiPSMA Imaging Agent Quickly Identifies Prostate Cancer Lesions

first_img News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more January 6, 2017 — New research demonstrates that a novel imaging agent can quickly and accurately detect metastasis of prostate cancer, even in areas where detection has previously been difficult. Published in the December issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, the Phase 1 dose-escalation study of Zr-89-desferrioxamine-IAB2M (Zr-89-Df-IAB2M), an anti-PSMA (prostate-specific membrane antigen) minibody, in patients with metastatic prostate cancer shows its effectiveness in targeting both bone and soft tissue lesions.“This agent is imaged faster than other PSMA-targeting imaging antibodies due to its small size and has been shown to be safe for patients,” explained Neeta Pandit-Taskar, M.D., of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. “The radiotracer combines a small amount of the radioactive material zirconium-89 with a fragment of an antibody called a minibody. This minibody has anti-PSMA qualities and attaches to overexpression of the enzyme on the exterior of prostate cancer cells, wherever they may have traveled in the body. Particles emitted from the site are then detected by positron emission tomography (PET). The resulting scan highlights ‘hot spots’ of PSMA overexpression.”She added, “Using this agent, we can detect the prostate cancer cells that have metastasized to bone — one of the most difficult areas to evaluate using standard methods.”For the study, 18 patients were imaged with the new agent using PET/CT (computed tomography) as well as a variety of conventional imaging modalities, including CT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), molecular bone scan (SI) and PET with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET). Suspected disease sites were then selected and biopsied.Both skeletal and nodal lesions were detected with Zr-89-Df-IAB2M; scans were positive in 17 of the 18 patients, with bone lesions targeted in nine and soft tissue disease seen in 14. In comparison, bone scans with more traditional agents (Tc-99m-methylene diphosphonate and FDG) were positive for bone lesions in nine and six patients, respectively; for nodal/soft tissue disease, CT and FDG scans were positive in 14 and 10 patients, respectively. In two patients, a single site of disease per patient was identified only by the minibody. In total, Zr-89-Df-IAB2M imaging detected 147 bone and 82 soft-tissue or nodal lesions.“Results of imaging with this Zr-89 radiolabeled minibody have shown that we are able to detect more disease sites in patients than with conventional imaging,” Pandit-Taskar stated. “We hope that with further development this technology will help us in earlier and more accurate assessment of disease and assist in clinical decision-making.”She pointed out, “With further validation, this agent could potentially be used for targeted biopsies, which could lead to more appropriate, timely treatment for prostate cancer patients. It may also have potential use in targeted radiotherapy.”For more information: www.jnm.snmjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Heres why the 2573 Canadians spend on vacations should include travel insurance

first_img Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Tags: Allianz, Insurance Posted by Travelweek Group Here’s why the $2,573 Canadians spend on vacations should include travel insurancecenter_img TORONTO — With March Break just around the corner, Allianz Global Assistance Canada is sounding the alarm on vacationers who travel without insurance. Because that broken ankle on a Florida vacation, resulting in hospital bills that could cost US$45,000 or more, isn’t going to pay for itself.Even the federal government has advised that all Canadians travelling during March Break should purchase travel insurance.Travel agents are well-versed about the risks of travelling without insurance, but often clients think they know better.As Dan Keon, Vice President, Market Management for Allianz Global Assistance Canada points out, a broken ankle requiring surgery in Orlando could cost a family $45,000 in hospital bills and other costs.“In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a broken arm requiring surgery and a two-day hospital stay could average $32,800,” says Keon.A family member accompanying injured or ill loved one could face extra costs on hotels and rebooking flights.And as Keon points out, March Break is not a flexible travel period as the kids are off school for just one week, so trip cancellation insurance is another important consideration.That broken ankle could add up to a bill of more than $11,470 with a hospital stay of 2.5 days in The Bahamas. In Cuba, the average cost of a broken leg is $3,835 with a hospital stay of eight days. And a hip fracture in the D.R. could also be financially devastating, says Keon, with an average cost of $43,500.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”These costs aren’t pulled from thin air – they’re averages based on the claims administered by Allianz Global Assistance Canada.On Feb. 11 the federal government highlighted the importance of safe travel especially during March Break: “Everyone, including healthy Canadians, should purchase the best travel insurance they can afford. Travel insurance should include health, life and disability coverage that will help travellers avoid incurring major expenses, such as the cost of hospitalization or medical treatment outside Canada.”The full advisory is at canada.ca/en/global-affairs/news/2019/02/advice-for-canadian-travellers-spring-break.html.“It’s not just the straight medical costs that people need to be aware of,” says Keon. “It’s also the additional expenses that may be unavoidable if a family member has to stay in the destination longer with a loved one who has been hospitalized or can’t immediately travel due to an injury.”He adds: “Extra nights in a hotel for the accompanying family member, additional meals, and having to rebook flights are expenses most people don’t consider. These, and other out-of-pocket expenses may be covered by medical, trip cancellation and interruption insurance, and help to offset significant financial losses.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTSince March Break is a holiday dependent on the kids being out of school, there is often no flexibility on the dates, so trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance can be equally as important as having travel medical insurance.“If an unexpected, covered event happens to you or a travel companion that forces you to cancel plans before heading out, trip cancellation insurance becomes a needed benefit for everyone, particularly for March Break which is a set vacation period,” says Keon.  “Canadians spend an average of $2,573 on vacations each year, which makes travel one of the single largest annual purchases for an average household.“Adding unexpected medical expenses, extra hotel nights, unplanned meals and rebooked flights to that, can be financially devastating. It just makes sense to budget the relatively inexpensive cost of insurance into your vacation plans.“We recommend travellers speak with their travel advisor or insurance broker to understand the full range of benefits travel insurance can offer, even for a short March Break getaway.” Share << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

Venezuelas Chávez stable after respiratory infection

first_imgVenezuelan President Hugo Chávez is in stable condition after being diagnosed with a respiratory infection following his latest cancer surgery in Cuba, an official said Wednesday.Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas said doctors had treated the infection and brought it under control, adding that it was a common consequence of complicated surgeries and that the ailing leader required “absolute rest.”Chávez, 58, is due to be sworn in for a third presidential term on Jan. 10, but the country is now on tenterhooks to see if the outspoken, formerly tireless leader will remain their president, become incapacitated, or worse.He has named foreign minister and Vice President Nicolás Maduro as both his temporary replacement and hand-picked successor.Chávez’s ruling socialist party tightened its grip on power over the weekend by winning 20 of the 23 governorships in local elections, snatching up four that had been held by the opposition.But Chávez, who is still in Cuba following his latest surgery, has yet to publicly react to the victory.Aides admitted that Chávez experienced “complications” from his most recent surgery, including bleeding that now appears to be under control.Venezuela has never said what type of cancer Chávez has, nor which organs are affected, but doctors removed a tumor from his pelvic region last year.

Chinas Wen calls for action on Europe debt

first_img 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement AP Business WriterBEIJING (AP) – Expressing alarm at Europe’s debt problems, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao called on Greece, Spain and Italy to embrace budget cuts and get their finances in order after meeting Thursday with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.Wen said Beijing is willing to keep buying European bonds but gave no sign Beijing will bail out the eurozone.Merkel was in Beijing for talks aimed at boosting trade and allaying Chinese fears about Europe’s heavy government debts. China has a stake in a resolution because Europe is its biggest export market and Beijing holds billions of dollars in European bonds. Comments   Share   Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technologycenter_img “The European debt crisis has continued to worsen, giving rise to serious concerns in the international community. Frankly speaking, I am also worried,” Wen told reporters. He cited uncertainty over whether Greece leaves the eurozone and whether Italy and Spain will take “comprehensive rescue measures,” a reference to spending cuts and tax increases to balance their budgets.“Resolving these two problems rests with whether Greece, Spain, Italy and other countries have the determination for reform,” the premier said. “Resolving the European debt problem requires fiscal tightening and finding balance within individual economies.”Wen’s comments were unusually pointed for China, which says governments should not interfere in each other’s affairs. But the country’s leaders are increasingly worried about the safety of their European debt holdings and European economies where Chinese companies are expanding.Wen said Beijing was willing to buy European bonds so long as it could evaluate the risks and to help the European Union, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank _ the so-called troika _ support indebted eurozone countries “in overcoming hardships.” Wen made a similar pledge of possible Chinese aid to European bailout funds during Merkel’s last visit to Beijing in February but it is unclear what the communist government has done.The European Financial Stability Fund, set up to lend to troubled governments, says China and other Asian investors have bought 40 percent of its bonds but has released no other details.Merkel told reporters that while the crisis is not over, countries such as Italy and Greece were “on an intensive road of reforms. I am convinced that this will bear fruit.”Greek politicians agreed this week on an austerity package demanded by creditors but were negotiating details. Inspectors from the troika are due in Athens next month for a review, on which hinges a rescue loan installment of (EURO)31 billion.“I want Greece to remain part of the eurozone,” Merkel said. “I have at the same time indicated that credibility is very important in the eurozone. Therefore we expect the program to be implemented.”Ahead of Merkel’s visit, German officials told reporters Berlin wanted to reassure Beijing that European debt is a “safe and good investment.”Later, Wen and Merkel presided at a signing ceremony for billions of dollars in business deals _ a regular event during visits by European leaders. A Cabinet official said Wednesday that official measures are starting to take effect and growth was “stabilizing at a slow pace.” But corporate profits are down and a survey of manufacturers released last week showed future export orders have fallen.Germany is China’s biggest European trading partner and one of the few developed economies with which it runs a trade deficit, due to large imports of German factory equipment and industrial components. Beijing reported a $16.3 billion trade deficit with Germany last year and $13 billion for the first seven months of this year.Europe’s downturn has battered China’s exporters, wiping out thousands of manufacturing jobs.Exports to Italy in July plunged 26 percent from a year earlier, while those to even relatively strong Germany were down 6.5 percent. Exports to France fell 8 percent.The trade slump, coupled with weak consumer demand in China, has raised the threat of unrest as the party tries to enforce calm ahead of its leadership transition.Merkel was accompanied by a 20-member delegation of executives from German companies in the auto, chemicals, energy, commodities and other industries.The visit also comes amid tension over a request by European manufacturers of solar power equipment for anti-dumping duties on Chinese products they say are improperly subsidized. Chinese manufacturers that depend on the European market have warned Beijing might retaliate. Airbus Industrie, a unit of the French-German consortium EADS, committed to invest $1.6 billion in the second phase of an aircraft final assembly plant opened in 2008 in Tianjin, Wen’s hometown. A Chinese state company signed an agreement to purchase 50 Airbus jetliners valued at $3.5 billion.Volkswagen AG, Europe’s biggest automaker, signed a deal to invest $219 million in an “environmentally friendly production facility” and vocational training initiative, also in Tianjin. Eurocopter, another EADS unit, signed an agreement to build a $12.5 million production facility in China.Officials of the two governments also signed agreements to collaborate in biotechnology, electric vehicles, agriculture, education, labor and the environment.The next round in a regular series of Chinese-German meetings was scheduled for next year, but German officials say Wen asked Merkel to come early before the Communist Party begins a once-a-decade handover of power to younger leaders in October.Merkel met later Thursday with Xi Jinping, who is due to become party leader and president.The two-day visit comes as Beijing is struggling to pull China out of its deepest economic slump since the 2008 global crisis. The government has cut interest rates twice and is pumping money into the economy with a wave of investments by state companies. The visit focuses mostly on economic issues, but officials also discussed Syria, which is in the throes of a civil war that has left an estimated 20,000 people dead.Russia and China have repeatedly used their veto power in the U.N. Security Council to block strong Western- and Arab-backed action against President Bashar Assad’s regime that could have led to sanctions.Germany’s foreign minister conceded that Berlin and Beijing remained at odds on Syria. “We Germans are still convinced that it is necessary for peaceful change and a new beginning to be made possible in Syria,” Guido Westerwelle said, according to German news agency dapd.On the Chinese side, there are “certainly still different opinions,” Westerwelle added, but both countries “will nevertheless work together in New York, above all when it comes to humanitarian aid being improved.”On Friday, Merkel and Wen planned to travel to Tianjin, east of Beijing, to visit the Airbus plant.___AP writer Geir Moulson in Berlin and APTN producer Aritz Parra in Beijing contributed.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

first_imgFILE – In this Dec. 24, 2017, file photo, Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor rolls out against the New England Patriots during the first half of an NFL football game in Foxborough, Mass. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File) The Cleveland Browns have traded for Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, per multiple reports, taking another potential option at QB off the board for the Arizona Cardinals.Taylor was acquired for a third-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter that puts Buffalo back on the lookout for a quarterback, but the ripple effect doesn’t stop there. The 27-year-old was selected 164th overall by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Playing behind starter Andy Dalton his entire career, the three-time national champion at Alabama has only thrown 133 passes in his NFL career.In 2015, he filled in for the injured Dalton, completing 76 of his 115 passes (66 percent) for 832 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. In his four starts in the regular season, McCarron was 2-2, not including a playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.As for the Bills, they pick at Nos. 21 and 22 in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft, along with two second-round picks. The late first round is an area of the draft that is projected to not have a first-round graded quarterback on the board, and with the Cardinals at No. 15, the Taylor move potentially creates a team that could leapfrog the Cardinals to take a quarterback.It was a similar situation the Cardinals saw unfold in last year’s draft.The Kansas City Chiefs moved up to No. 10 and selected Patrick Mahomes while the Houston Texans traded up to No. 12 and picked Deshaun Watson, both in front of the Cardinals at No. 13. The next quarterback selected was DeShone Kizer at No. 52 overall.

So now Bengals free-agent QB A.J. McCarron can go to Arizona, Buffalo or Denver….Browns have their bridge QB for the QB they draft in round one.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2018The Bengals free agent McCarron was heavily linked to the Browns, as their head coach Hue Jackson was McCarron’s offensive coordinator in the 2015 season that McCarron saw some success in. The Browns agreed to a trade for McCarron before the 2017 trade deadline, but the deal did not go through because of late paperwork from the Browns.last_img read more
