It is clear that patience in some cases has already run out. In the first minute we could have put ourselves ahead. It’s the clearest chance I’ve seen in six months of competition and we did not even shoot at the goal, this is not like a player from the Primera nor Valencia,” the coach fumed in reference to Batshuayi, who was hauled off at halftime.He added that “I do not make the changes to point to anyone. I make the changes depending on the performance I see. Of the effort, of the intention, of what I see. I try to be fair and from there I modify.”Interestingly, on-loan Derby striker Nick Blackman featured for victors Sporting Gijon.

Unemployment rate dips slightly in October

first_imgOTTAWA (NEWS 1130) – There was a slight dip in unemployment numbers last month.However, overall, Statistics Canada says there was little change. The unemployment rate fell 0.1 per cent to 5.8 per cent, .The rate edged back down to its four-decade low, as job growth was essentially flat and fewer people looked for work.In British Columbia, the jobless rate dropped to 4.1 per cent in October, from 4.2 per cent the month before. B.C. had the lower rate across the country, with Newfoundland and Labrador seeing the highest at 12.7 per cent.Jobs miss:“Employment was little changed in October” says Statscan. Consensus estimate was for a gain of 15,000. “The unemployment rate decreased 0.1 percentage points to 5.8% as fewer people searched for work.”— Richard Dettman (@rwdettman) November 2, 2018According to Statistics Canada, the country added 11,200 net new jobs in October, but the numbers were too low for the agency to consider them statistically significant.Economists had expected an increase of 10,000 jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.9 per cent, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.The jobs report also says year-over-year average hourly wage growth, which is closely watched by the Bank of Canada, continued its steady decline in October to 2.19 per cent — its weakest reading since September 2017.Experts have expected wage growth to strengthen in the tightened labour market _ but it has dropped every month since May when it was 3.94 per cent.The report also says a dip in the labour force participation rate helped nudge the jobless rate down from its 5.9 per cent reading in September to match the reading’s 40-year low for the seventh time in last 12 months.last_img read more

An old favourite joins battle for most valuable company

first_imgA funny thing happened in the competition to be the most valuable public company in the U.S.Apple became the first U.S. company valued at $1 trillion in August, and Amazon briefly joined it a month later. With Apple selling phones for more than $700 a pop, on average, and more and more consumers shopping on Amazon, it was no surprise that those companies rose to the top of the value chain.Then came October and November. Both companies issued cautious outlooks for the holidays amid a downturn in the stock market and investors dumped their shares, opening the door for a third player.Microsoft, the 1990s home-computing powerhouse that is having a renaissance moment, has eclipsed Amazon and is close to passing Apple in market value. Around midday Thursday, Apple’s value topped Microsoft’s by just over $2 billion: $847.6 billion to $845.2 billion. Amazon was back to $820.8 billion.That Microsoft is even close to eclipsing Apple would have been unheard of just a few years ago.But under CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft has found stability by moving away from its flagship Windows operating system and focusing on cloud-computing services with long-term business contracts.Microsoft even momentarily passed Apple in value on Monday, the first time in eight years it was more valuable than the iPhone maker. Apple has been the world’s most valuable firm since claiming the top spot from Exxon Mobil earlier this decade. Microsoft hasn’t been at the top since the height of the dot-com boom in 2000.Wall Street analysts are encouraged by Microsoft’s growing cloud-computing business while a bit concerned about a slowdown in Apple’s phone sales. Research firm Canacord Genuity lowered its price target for Apple to $225 from $250 on Thursday, while maintaining a “buy” rating. Apple shares have fallen from around $225 in early October to below $180.That 21 per cent decline has allowed Microsoft to again be a contender for most valuable company. Microsoft shares have dropped only 4 per cent in the same time frame, a reflection of its steady focus on business customers in recent years.Being less reliant on consumer demand helped shield Microsoft from holiday season turbulence and U.S.-China trade war jitters affecting Apple and other tech companies.The Associated Presslast_img read more

A new paradigm of Sarkar

first_imgThe electoral process has begun in India to constitute the next Lok Sabha. In this context, a controversial film in Tamil draws the Election Commission’s attention. Sarkar (Government) is a Tamil movie acted by Vijay a popular, young and leading actor in Tamil Nadu and directed by Murugadoss. It was released on the day of Deepavali. Within a few days of its release, one of the ministers of the AIADMK government criticised that the film showed AIADMK and its leaders in a bad light and demanded the removal of those scenes. Cadres of AIADMK organised protest meetings in front of the cinema houses all over Tamil Nadu. Within a few days, the objectionable scenes as indicated by the AIADMK government were removed. The controversy and agitations created curiosity among the ordinary viewers and consequently, the film gained much popularity. If viewed with a sensible perspective, people will come to a conclusion that it is an effective film to be screened in every village, every street and municipalities to create awareness among the voters about the significance of the ballot paper and how it could be used for the benefit of people. This film can be recommended by the Election Commission of India to be screened all over the country in different languages. Apart from the importance of the ballot paper, it throws light on how the centralised system of party control has to be replaced with an alternative system of decentralised people-centric evolutionary politics to bring accountability on the part of elected representatives. Also Read – A special kind of bondFurther, how valuable citizens have been reduced as voters by the political parties, as beneficiaries by the government, as petitioners by the bureaucracy, and as customers and consumers by the market has been emotionally explained in this film. People are the primary agents to bringing transformation in society and politics but in reality, they are the most disrespected individuals in the society by the political and bureaucratic class of India. The film has brought to light the decentralised model of politics to cleanse the corrupt government, administration, and politics. This has been suggested by the Gorwal Committee at the dawn of independence in the Indian National Congress to search for talented committed social workers for the party to contest in the general election on behalf of the party. In this film, it has been portrayed that best service-minded social workers can be involved in politics from different fields and nominated to contest the election, through which diverse professionals could be inducted into the policy-making system. Also Read – Insider threat managementThere is yet another message powerfully conveyed to the people that raising questions is the hallmark of democracy. In our democracy, questioning is totally prohibited in the name of discipline in all democratic institutions. In this film, it has been highlighted that without raising questions, equality cannot be achieved and democracy will not mature. All these messages have been communicated through the actor Vijay through the powerful dialogues in this film. In the electoral process of a democracy, if a party gets a huge majority by weakening the opposition party in terms of its strength, it is not a victory for democracy. This aspect has been convincingly scripted and communicated through the powerful dialogues in the movie. It is a political movie with hard ideas communicated in a simple way. It is a highly educative movie. The dialogues scripted for the film criticised both the Dravidian parties and not only AIADMK. Then why the AIADMK ministers alone have raised objections and demanded the removal of a few scenes in the movie. They assumed that it is a movie which completely criticises AIADMK. In reality, it is not so. The film outrightly condemned both the parties as they are involved in practising cash for votes and delivering freebies. The film argues for an alternative paradigm to the existing political party framework of politics. Deeper democratic values are highlighted in a simple way to the public. Since Sun Pictures was involved in the production, DMK kept quiet. Of all the fan clubs, Vijay fan club has got a higher number of young people. He has a huge following. He takes a different line, unlike Kamal and Rajinikanth. He took an open stand against the Central government and the state government. When GST was welcomed by all cinema actors, he was the only person who opposed it. Kamal and Rajini both are old compared to him. Yet, he indicates that he will enter into politics. This creates fear among political parties. Whenever Vijay produces films of this sort, it is opposed by political parties sparking curiosity among the people and subsequently, a huge advertisement is given free of cost. This film also had the same fate but it succeeded by earning more than their expectation. This movie has to be recommended by the Election Commission to be screened all over the country in the respective regional languages for the benefit of the public. The Election Commission has repeatedly made it clear that it faces the problem of cash for votes in South India, particularly in Tamil Nadu. In this context, this film is a good example to create awareness among the people about the value of votes. The entire team has to be appreciated. It is an excellent movie to create electoral awareness among people. It outrightly attacks all unethical electoral practices. It is one of the best political movies produced in the recent past in Tamil. (The author is a former Professor and Rajiv Gandhi Chair for Panchayati Raj Studies, Gandhigram Rural Institute.

Cyclone lashes remote Australian coast with wind rains

first_imgSydney: A vast and powerful cyclone made landfall Saturday along a remote stretch of the northern Australian coast, bringing fierce winds and heavy rains amid safety fears for a small number of residents who’ve stayed in the area. A category 4 storm, with 5 being the strongest, Cyclone Trevor crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria coast at 9:50 a.m. local time (2250 GMT) in the far east of the Northern Territory, near its border with Queensland state. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US Most of the sparsely populated area has been evacuated, with more than 2,000 people put up in temporary accommodation in the Northern Territory capital Darwin, and the nearby town of Katherine. But with the cyclone bringing wind gusts of up to 250 kilometers per hour (155 miles per hour), and with flash flooding expected as heavy rains meet hard-baked lands recently hit by drought, authorities have issued safety warnings for the small number of people who have stayed put. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Northern Territory Emergency Services spokesman Jason Collins said anyone remaining in Trevor’s path needed to have supplies to last at least three days, to take shelter and stay away from waterways. “Turn around, don’t drown. We may not be there to save you,” he said. “Emergency services are stretched.” Those remaining in the area, mostly farm holders, mine workers and local residents who opted not to leave, are believed to number less than a couple of dozen. Moving in a west-southwest direction, Cyclone Trevor was expected to weaken to category 2 by late Saturday. Meanwhile Cyclone Veronica, another category 4 system, was expected to cross the northwest Australian coast late Saturday night, bringing wind gusts of up to 230 kph (143 mph). Residents of Western Australia state’s coastal Pilbara region, which is also only lightly populated, have been warned to take cover. Cyclones are frequent in Australia’s tropical north and rarely claim lives. But two such large storms as Cyclones Trevor and Veronica crossing land on the same weekend is rare.last_img read more

BJPs new religion is poles apart from Indias culture tradition

first_imgDarjeeling: “There are some people who have come out brandishing maces and swords to ask for votes. Whose heads will you crack with the maces? Whose throats will you slash?” questioned Mamata Banerjee on Saturday. The TMC supremo ended her 10-day-long campaign trail in North Bengal with a rally at the Baghajatin Park in Siliguri. Addressing a mammoth gathering, Banerjee stated that a political party has imported a new religion that is poles apart from the culture and tradition of Bengal and of India. This is being used to suppress others. This is not religion, it is fascism. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details”Religion is not about discrimination nor is it war. Religion teaches us humanity, it teaches us tolerance. Recently, there is a new religion being taught by a group of intolerant bigots. They have created a new religion which is disintegrating and blemishing our society. Just by sporting saffron, one does not become a saint. The colour saffron stands for sacrifice. It is about integrity,” retorted Mamata Banerjee. “BJP, you are answerable. You have to be accountable. Don’t do politics with religion. Don’t try to hide behind religion. Don’t be escapists. The TMC does not have to use religion as a poll plank. We have never done that,” stated Banerjee. The Chief Minister’s oblique remarks were directed at BJP on the day when the saffron brigade took out rallies on the occasion of Ram Navami sporting weapons. Even Dilip Ghosh, the state BJP president was seen brandishing a mace and a sword in one such rally. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayThe TMC supremo also appealed to the masses not to vote for the CPI(M) and Congress in Bengal. “They are a spent force here and will not be able to achieve anything. Votes should not be split. The party in power in a particular region should be supported with the main aim of ousting the BJP from Delhi,” stated Banerjee. She stated that despite being a national party, the TMC has not fielded candidates where other regional parties are strong. “I ask my CPI(M) and Congress brothers and sisters here, what is the use of voting for the CPI(M) and Congress here in Bengal? Support them where they are strong. Here TMC is strong. Vote for TMC here so that we can win all 42 seats and oust the BJP in Delhi. TMC did not field any candidate in Kerala where the Left is strong,” explained Banerjee. The TMC chief reiterated that she will not allow the NRC nor the Citizenship Amendment Act to happen in Bengal. “Modiji, respect the Army. Respect their sacrifice. Don’t drag them into politics,” she urged.last_img read more

Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Draws Sharp Response From NFL

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones speaks after an NFL football game against the Arizona Cardinals, in Glendale, Ariz.. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)DALLAS (AP) — The declaration by the powerful owner of the Dallas Cowboys that he would bench anyone who shows disrespect to the American flag drew a sharp response from the NFL players’ union Monday and raised the possibility of another call to action by athletes who have kneeled during the national anthem.Executive Director DeMaurice Smith of the NFL Players Association said the most provocative comments yet by Jerry Jones on the anthem controversy contradicted assurances last week from Commissioner Roger Goodell and New York Giants President John Mara that players could express themselves without retribution.“I look forward to the day when everyone in management can unite and truly embrace and articulate what the flag stands for, liberty and justice for all, instead of some of them just talking about standing,” Smith said. “We look forward to continuing our talks with them on this very issue.”Jones’ comments on Sunday came after he was asked about Vice President Mike Pence’s decision to leave an Indianapolis home game in protest of about a dozen San Francisco players who kneeled during the anthem. President Donald Trump tweeted after Pence’s walkout that he had told his vice president to leave if any players kneeled during the anthem.Following a 35-31 loss to Green Bay, the 74-year-old Jones said the NFL cannot leave the impression that it tolerates players disrespecting the flag and said any Cowboys doing so will not play.“If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play,” said Jones, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. “OK? Understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play. Period.”The Cowboys and Jones kneeled arm-in-arm before the anthem when they played at Arizona two weeks ago, a few days after Trump said at a rally in Alabama that NFL owners should fire any players who disrespect the flag. All of them stood during the anthem, with arms still locked.Most Dallas players have stood on the sideline, many with hands over their hearts, during the anthem since former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling last season in protest of police treatment of African-Americans.Several NFL teams have struggled with how to handle anthem protests. After Trump’s criticism, the Pittsburgh Steelers agreed to stay off the field before the anthem. But Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, an offensive lineman, stood at the edge of a tunnel with his teammates in darkness behind him during the anthem two weeks ago.Villanueva said he was not making a political statement in defiance of his teammates, calling it a misunderstanding that was “very embarrassing on my end.”Miami coach Adam Gase recently set a new team policy requiring players either to stand or wait in the tunnel. Three chose to stay off the field, Michael Thomas, Kenny Stills and Julius Thomas. All three have kneeled in the past.“We were just trying to keep the team focused and not be a distraction,” Michael Thomas said. “It was a team decision. … The league heard us. They’ve heard the cry of the players.”Mara has told Giants players he wants them to stand during the anthem but supports their right to do otherwise. Jones had already made it clear that he felt strongly about standing for the anthem before his latest comments, and he isn’t the only owner who feels that way.Jones even suggested that standing for the anthem was more important to him that team unity.“The main thing I want to do is make it real clear: There is no room here if it comes between looking non-supportive of our players and of each other or creating the impression that you’re disrespecting the flag. We will be non-supportive of each other,” Jones said. “We will not disrespect the flag.”Trump’s comments stoked a political controversy that had subsided somewhat since Kaepernick started it a year ago. The NFL defended the rights of players to protest.Lead NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart has said, “Everyone should know, including the president, this is what real locker room talk is.” It was an apparent reference to the “Access Hollywood” tapes in which Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women. Trump had chalked up those comments as “locker room talk.” read more

Reagan is arguably most well known for her ‘Just Say No’ campaign of the 80s and 90s which was geared to young people and it encouraged them – not just in the US, but around the world – to say ‘no’ to drug use and abuse. In the TCI, a program inspired by this Just Say No initiative remains in the government high school system; that program is called DARE and brings Police officers into the school to forge friendlier relations with students and to act as a deterrent to crime. It may be the closest and only link the TCI has with the spirited Nancy Reagan, who passed away at the ripe age of 94; 12 years following her husband, President Ronald Reagan who died in 2004.

It’s that simple. Then it will stop. If it gets ignored, it will go on and on.”“Alfredo didn’t mention it. He gets on with it and just wants to play football. He’s been called up for Colombia.

Macaulay Culkin stays Home Alone again for Google Assistant

first_imgThe modern version of Kevin McCallister is much more laid-back than the original. Google got former child star Macaulay Culkin to reprise his most famous role for an ad for Google Assistant. Review • Google Nest Hub review: Still the smart display to beat Dell Online The video ties in with Google Assistant’s launch of a bunch of Home Alone-themed Easter eggs this December. At least this time, nobody gets hit in the face with an iron. 0 2019 movies to geek out over The video is both a nostalgic revisiting of the 1990 hit Home Alone and a clever way to show off what Google’s voice-activated devices can do. Culkin once again finds himself at home alone around Christmas time. He uses a Google Home Hub, Google Home Mini and his phone to check his calendar, set reminders, order pizza and adjust the house temperature. The narrative this time plays out very differently from the movie. The thieves never make it inside thanks to a Google-triggered “Operation Kevin” that activates the front door’s smart lock and sets a whole sequence of house-protecting events into motion.  CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

After Harleen Sethi is Vicky Kaushal dating Malavika Mohanan

first_imgInstagramVicky Kaushal’s onscreen performances have generated the same kind of buzz that his off-screen life has. The interest around one of the country’s most eligible bachelors refuses to die down and rightly so! Well, ladies, brace yourselves as this particular piece of information might be very hard to digest.After breaking up with Harleen Sethi, Vicky Kaushal is allegedly seeing actress Malavika Mohanan. It has barely been a few months since Vicky Kaushal made news for his relationship with actress Harleen Sethi and then made subsequent news for their unceremonious break-up and now, the Uri actor is back in news for dating Ishaan Khatter’s Beyond The Clouds co-star – Malavika Mohanan.A pinkvilla report states, “Malavika is always talking glowingly about him to everybody. She likes him so much she cannot stop gushing about him and while Vicky is more reticent, he does these little romantic gestures, like dropping in and surprising her on the sets of one of her South films and taking her out for lunch. Vicky loves home-cooked South Indian food and often drops in on the Mohanan house in Mumbai like Thursday night. Even though he’s a Punjabi, he loves the South Indian style fish-curry and rice but on Thursday he was disappointed it was not there so Malavika pulled his leg on Insta by posting “Deprived of fish curry and rice. Life is not a Mani Ratnam film today.”Prior to this, Vicky Kaushal was also in news for his alleged closeness to Katrina Kaif and Bhumi Pednekar. Bhumi was cited as the reason for his breakup with Harleen Sethi. Needless to say, Malavika and Vicky look fabulous together and we hope this time, Vicky comes out in the open and accepts his relationship.last_img read more
