Jonathan And Drew Scott Named Habitat Humanitarians

first_imgEntrepreneurs, TV personalities, best-selling authors and world-renowned construction and real estate experts Jonathan and Drew Scott have been selected as Habitat Humanitarians in recognition and furtherance of their dedication to Habitat For Humanity’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.Receiving the highest recognition offered by Habitat for Humanity, the Scott brothers join former President Jimmy Carter, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood as the fifth and sixth Habitat Humanitarians named by the organization.“We’re honored to take on this role as Habitat Humanitarians to help build a world where everyone has a safe and affordable place to live,” Drew Scott said. “Building or buying a home is not easy work for anyone, and a Habitat home is no different. Rather than a handout, Habitat offers a hand up by partnering with homeowners to build homes and pay down an affordable mortgage.”“We have seen firsthand how affordable homeownership changes lives,” Jonathan Scott said. “A home is more than four walls and a roof. It’s a safe place to sleep at night, a place for children to play and grow, and a place for families to build brighter futures.”As Habitat Humanitarians, the Scott brothers will serve as ambassadors for Habitat for Humanity, raising awareness of the challenges facing affordable housing and supporting Habitat’s mission.“We are honored to have Jonathan and Drew take on this role and continue to use their voices to lift up the cause of affordable homeownership,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Anyone who has seen them in action knows Jonathan and Drew’s dedication to helping people turn their houses into homes, and stretching every dollar to realize their dream. We are inspired by their passion and privileged to have them join the Habitat family.”Buying, selling, building and renovating homes for more than 15 years, the Scott brothers have also long participated in Habitat builds in the United States and Canada. As Habitat Humanitarians, the brothers will volunteer on Habitat build sites, speak out for affordable housing and help fundraise so that more families can achieve their dreams of homeownership.For more information, visit habitat.org/humanitarians.last_img read more

One Refugee to Host Human Rights Advocate Ishmael Beah

first_imgOne Refugee, a nonprofit organization supporting refugees in Utah through education and career initiatives, will host an evening of inspirational storytelling with New York Times bestselling author and human rights advocate Ishmael Beah on August 17, 2018.The public is invited to attend the event at 7 p.m. at the LDS Conference Center Theater, sponsored by LDS Charities.A former child soldier in Sierra Leone during the Sierra Leone Civil War, Beah was rescued by UNICEF in 1996. He has since gone on to become a New York Times bestselling author of two books, a memoir titled “A Long Way Gone” and a novel, “Radiance of Tomorrow.” A UNICEF Ambassador and advocate for Children Affected by War, Beah is also a member of the Human Rights Watch Children’s Advisory Committee.“Ishmael is an incredible example of overcoming a history of violence and poverty, and acting as a vehicle for change across the globe,” said One Refugee CEO Steve Ostler. “He has made an impact on countless lives by sharing his story, and we are lucky to be able to learn from him. I hope our own community of refugees within Salt Lake are able to draw from Ishmael’s experience as they look towards building their own lives and careers.”Prior to the event, Beah will spend the day at O.C. Tanner at One Refugee’s fifth-annual conference that is expected to be attended by more than 120-150 student refugees within the One Refugee program. There, Beah will discuss the practice of storytelling and share his experience as a boy soldier. The initial welcoming will begin at 10 a.m., with remarks from One Refugee’s Steve Ostler and Amy Wylie, and continue until 4 p.m. with workshops on storytelling, writing practice and a discussion led by Beah. The evening event will go from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. More information can be seen here.last_img read more

Mediterranean the deadliest sea for refugees and migrants says UN agency

31 January 2012The Mediterranean Sea has become the deadliest stretch of water in the world for migrants and refugees, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported today. According to the UN agency’s estimates for last year, more than 1,500 people drowned or went missing while attempting to cross the sea from Africa to reach Europe, making 2011 the deadliest year for this region since UNHCR began recording the statistics in 2006.“Our teams in Greece, Italy, Libya, and Malta, warn that the actual number of deaths at sea may be even higher,” UNHCR spokesperson Sybella Wilkes told reporters in Geneva.Ms. Wilkes added that the UNHCR estimates were based on interviews with migrants who reached Europe by boat, telephone and e-mail communication from their relatives, as well as reports from Libya and Tunisia from survivors whose boats either sank or were in distress.Since pro-democracy protests erupted across North Africa and the Middle East early last year, large numbers of people have taken to boats to try to reach Europe, with Italy and Malta bearing the brunt of the displacement and migration.Survivors have recounted harrowing stories of being forced onto unseaworthy vessels by armed guards, particularly during April and May in Libya. Some have even reported cases of abuse and torture experienced at the hands of other passengers during the journey.Ms. Wilkes noted that despite poor weather conditions and high seas, UNHCR was disturbed to learn that three boats had already attempted the crossing in 2012, with one going missing at sea.On that note, she also welcomed the efforts of the Italian, Maltese and Libyan authorities to rescue distressed boats in the Mediterranean.“We renew our call to all shipmasters in the Mediterranean, one of the busiest stretches of water in the world, to remain vigilant and to carry out there duty of rescuing vessels in distress,” Ms. Wilkes stated.Of last year’s arrivals by sea, 56,000 landed in Italy while Malta and Greece received 1,574 and 1,000 respectively. In addition, according to the Greek Government, an estimated 55,000 irregular migrants crossed the Greek-Turkish land border. read more

EYEWITNESS Railroading…

…PPP officialsThe DPP’s supposed to review all cases the Police – or in this case SOCU – wants to prosecute. In the case of long-trumpeted accusations by the PNC/APNU and AFC of the PPP government “siphoning off billions and billions”, it took them over two years after their “forensic” audits of dozens of agencies to bring charges against two PPP Administration officials – Brassington, CEO of NICIL and Singh, Minister of Finance.And what charges!! It was as if the mountain strained – and produced a mouse!! Criminal “Misconduct in a public official” – an English medieval charge coterminous with burning folks at the stake! – that was long thrown out there. And what actions deserve possible “drawing and quartering”? That Singh and Brassington knowingly sold Government land far below the market value. Matters not that “market value” is a very slippery notion, and even if proven, there might’ve been extenuating circumstances for their decision.Anyhow, SOCU made no accusations that Brassington and Singh took a piece of the action or anything like that – just that they gave away the store. So, even if SOCU’s right, there was no ‘siphoning” from the Treasury, just that the Treasury could’ve been further fattened. But in the latest charges against the PPP’s financial mavens, it’s clear the PNC Government’s clutching at straws to satisfy their constituents, who’d been promised PPP blood.They’ve added the sale of the Sanata Complex — with facts so dodgy they prove someone’s either sleeping at the DPP’s office or else they’re singing for their supper!! That SOCU brought the charges we can understand – they’re directly under POLITICAL control.The gist of the charge, like your Eyewitness said, is that Brassington and Singh knowingly and deliberately gave away the (Government) store.Now, in these sales, how’d you determine “fair” value? Well, you go to qualified and certified “valuators” – which both the Government agents and the buyer did. The facts show NICIL first got a valuation of $245 million; the buyer got one for $350 million; and then NICIL got another one for $1 billion!Right off the bat, this shows NICIL was batting for the Government!! The final agreed price was the average of the buyer’s valuation and the HIGHER NICIL one.And this was giving away the store? Oi vey!!… CSMEAnother mountain that rumbled and strained to only produce a mouse was the CariCom “stakeholders” forum, at the Princess last week to consider the status of the CSME. The consensus was it wasn’t the fault of the Secretariat the CSME’s moribund, but of the Heads of Government (HOGS). Well…duh!!…wasn’t this always the case? Do we need a CDB-funded meet to tell us this??Whatever gap there’s been between the promise and achievement of CariCom has been the handiwork of the Little Caesar HOGS, who won’t concede an iota of their executive authority to a CariCom body to implement their decisions. So what we have is: these HOGS merrily pontificating about “what is to be done” at their “Summits” (which is so named to suggest their elevated statuses!!) but then returning “home” and sitting on their hands! So, what’ll change at the HOGS “special summit” next month? Absolutely nothing!The ever-candid St Vincent PM, Gonsalves, however, singled out Barbados and TT for preventing the CSME’s “free movement of peoples”.But since their economies have collapsed, that’s now moot, ain’t it??!!…G-7Trump threw a spanner into the G-7 meet when he refused to endorse the final communique, and called Canada’s PM, Justin Trudeau, “dishonest and weak”!!Now onto his Singapore meet with N Korea’s “Rocket man”!!

Trimble launches new technology at 2016 Dimensions User Conference

first_imgTrimble concluded its 8th International User Conference with more than 4,400 registered attendees representing over 80 countries. Trimble Dimensions was held November 7-9 at The Venetian in Las Vegas and provided insight into how information technology can transform the way professionals work to achieve success.“Each year, Trimble Dimensions has set new records for attendance—and this year we have done it again,” said Bryn Fosburgh, Trimble Vice President. “Dimensions is truly a celebration of technology—a unique conference focused on how advanced solutions are transforming the way the world works. With its well-deserved reputation as one of the industry’s most comprehensive educational events, Dimensions provides a stimulating and informative experience for industry professionals.”Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction division made several announcements at the event.Trimble announced a partnership with Engcon that enables Trimble’s GCS900 Grade Control System to be used with Engcon’s tiltrotator excavator attachments, which can result in time and fuel savings for contractors. Trimble and XCMG Excavator Machinery Business Division (XCMG) also announced a commitment to work together to integrate Trimble machine control solutions with XCMG excavators. Integrating Trimble machine control will allow XCMG customers to take advantage of Trimble Connected Site Solutions such as 3D constructible models and as-built data.Trimble also announced that the GCS900 Grade Control System is now available with xFill™ technology to sustain Real Time Kinematic (RTK) positions during correction outages. xFill uses Trimble RTX™ technology, delivered via satellite, to “fill in” for RTK corrections in the event of temporary radio or Internet connection outages. This means contractors can experience fewer interruptions and less machine downtime.Also at Dimensions, Trimble introduced its DPS900 Machine Control System for Dynamic Compaction, which increases worker safety by eliminating the need for surveyors to work in close proximity to large machines. The number of drops per location and the depth of the hole can be accurately and automatically tracked and recorded using the DPS900 system, which helps reduce errors from the manual reporting method used today.Trimble has also made improvements to its site positioning systems for small contractors. Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software has introduced two new capabilities, EZ Level and BaseAnywhere. EZ Level replaces traditional laser transmitters with GNSS or total stations for easy elevation checking when no design is available. BaseAnywhere allows contractors to quickly set up their Trimble SPS585 GNSS Smart Antenna as a base station anywhere on the site, with no survey control necessary. In addition, corrections can now be streamed to the SPS585 using BaseAnywhere and Wi-Fi. No radio is needed, so smaller contractors have a very affordable way to receive GNSS corrections on site.last_img read more

ONLY JESUS SAVES”.He added: “Those that are living in sin will end up in hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”The post remains online, and has attracted more than 29,000 likes.Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday called his comments ‘terribly insensitive’.“You know it’s important that people act with love and care and compassion to their fellow citizens and to speak sensitively to their fellow Australians,” Morrison said.Gavan Casey and Murray Kinsella are joined by Bernard Jackman to discuss Izzy Folau’s impending sacking by Australia and all the week’s news on the latest episode of The42 Rugby Weekly: Friday 12 Apr 2019, 9:33 AM Short URL Folau broke Super Rugby’s all-time try-scoring record last weekend. 28 Comments https://the42.ie/4588645 By The42 Team Folau broke Super Rugby’s all-time try-scoring record last weekend.

Stocks fall on worries about Chinas economy

first_imgNEW YORK — Deepening worries about global economic growth, particularly in China, set off a rout in riskier assets including technology stocks, copper and crude oil Wednesday. U.S. retailers took a drubbing after Macy’s reported weaker sales.An unexpected drop in profits for Chinese tech giant Tencent surprised investors and added to some recent concerns about the health of China’s economy. Tencent, a gaming and messaging company, is the most valuable technology company in China.Earlier this week, reports on growth in factory output, consumer spending and retail sales in China were all slower than expected.Large technology companies including Alibaba and Baidu of China and U.S. tech giants including Facebook and Microsoft fell.Oil prices sank and copper plunged to its lowest price in a year as investors worried about the health of the global economy. The S&P 500 index had its biggest decline since late June while traditionally safe investments like bonds and high-dividend stocks rose.“This year we’ve seen slower growth. Everyone expected that,” said Kate Warne, an investment strategist for Edward Jones. “Over the last couple of months it looks like growth has been slower than everyone expected.”The S&P 500 slid 21.59 points, or 0.8 percent, to 2,818.37. Earlier it fell as much as 1.3 percent.The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 137.51 points, or 0.5 percent, to 25,162.41. The Nasdaq composite dropped 96.78 points, or 1.2 percent, to 7,774.12.

Mourinho only has one goal to win Thiago Motta

first_imgThe former Internazionale Milan footballer worked under the Portuguese in the Italian Lega Serie A and knows him very wellBrazilian midfielder Thiago Motta played with Internazionale Milan from 2009 to 2012.During that time he worked closely with Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, and he knows him very well.“He’s a winner. In his head, there’s only one goal: winning. Entertaining doesn’t interest him,” Thiago Motta told Goal.“Mourinho has two sides: one happy when he wins, one p*ssed off when he loses. His mood changes depending on the result.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“If the team plays well, but loses, he can’t find anything positive,” he added.“But if he wins playing badly, he’s overjoyed.”“Mourinho doesn’t look for beauty, he looks for an enemy. If he doesn’t have one, he’ll create one,” he commented.“With Inter, we had an 11-point lead in the league, we lost a game and then drew one.

McCain to Seek Sixth Senate Term

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced Tuesday he will run for a sixth term in the Senate, paving the way for Congress’ most ardent defense hawk to remain at the helm of the chamber’s Armed Services Committee beyond 2016.McCain, who will be 80 on Election Day in 2016, likely will face a more conservative opponent in the Republican primary but with his long-standing popularity and strong fundraising ability, it will be difficult to topple him, reported Stars and Stripes.“The reality is I think it is going to be very hard to push him out,” said Gordon Adams, a professor of foreign policy at American University.On Tuesday, McCain touted his position at the head of the defense committee. “I’ve never been in a better position to help our military defeat our enemies and secure our nation,” he said.The biggest threat to McCain losing his chairmanship could be a loss of the Senate majority by the GOP. The Republicans have more seats up for election in 2016 than the Democrats, according to the story.Adams pointed out that McCain’s influence on defense issues can be overstated. While McCain has led the charge by defense hawks in the House and Senate to reverse the statutory caps on defense spending, so far Republicans appear ready to pass a fiscal 2016 budget resolution that retains the limits. The two resolutions create the possibility that the caps could be overridden by adding billions to DOD’s war funding account, but it still is not clear whether appropriators will allocate the extra funds in next year’s spending bill.“I think he is a key voice. I am not so sure he is going to move the traffic when it comes to cutting a budget deal,” Adams said.last_img read more

Apple will soon let vets check health records on their iPhones

Comment • Tags Mobile Tech Industry Culture Apple Apple’s health efforts just scored another major partnership.The Cupertino tech giant said Monday it’s partnered with the US Department of Veterans Affairs to offer patients access to their health records using an iPhone. The new feature, which Apple said will be available in the summer, will include allergy information, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals, among other things. The information will be gleaned from across 1,243 facilities, serving 9 million veterans.”We have great admiration for veterans, and we’re proud to bring a solution like Health Records on iPhone to the veteran community,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, in a statement. Apple said it’s the first health record sharing agreement with the VA of its kind. “It’s truly an honor to contribute to the improved healthcare of America’s heroes.”The agreement marks the latest in Apple’s efforts to make health records more easily available on its devices. Last June, the company said it’s partnered with more than 500 hospitals to access information. And last fall, Apple made it easier for outside app developers to more easily share that information. Apple’s suggested this information not only helps users stay informed, but also could help tailor apps like medication tracking, nutrition planning and medical research.Apple had been rumored to be in talks with the VA as far back as 2017, with developments heating up late last year, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The VA at the time was excited by the prospect of vets more easily moving their data back and forth between various doctors and their software platforms, the Journal said.The VA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about whether it’s in discussion with any other app or phone makers to make medical records even more widely available to non-iPhone users.iOS 12: Siri shortcuts, group FaceTime and “Memoji” — Animoji of you.Understanding the Apple Watch: A look at Apple’s push into health tech with the Apple Watch Series 4. 1 reading • Apple will soon let vets check health records on their iPhoneslast_img read more

VidCutter review easy video cutting

first_imgVidCutter review: easy video cutting by Martin Brinkmann on November 17, 2017 in Software – Last Update: August 12, 2018 – 18 commentsVidCutter is a cross-platform software program for Windows, Mac and Linux devices that comes with tools to cut video and audio files.The program is not a full blown video editor but focuses on cutting media files exclusively. While that makes it less attractive to users who require other video editing tools as well, it is ideal for users who want to cut a video or audio file quickly and without having to read through hundred pages of documentation before they can even get started.The program is available for all supported operating systems. Binary versions are provided for Windows and Mac systems; Linux users get instructions on how to install the application on Linux devices and if the Linux version supports flatpacks, such a version is available as well.VidCutterVidCutter requires ffmpeg, at least on Windows where I ran it. You can grab ffmpeg builds here, and need to copy the binary files to the VidCutter directory so that they get picked up.The interface of VidCutter is divided into three main panes. There is the video preview pane, the clip index listing which highlights start and end times, and the bottom toolbar.You can load most media formats thanks to ffmpeg support and play these video or audio files directly in the interface; useful for previewing video and audio, and making sure that you have cut the video correctly.VidCutter shows a row of thumbnails underneath the two upper panes which you use for the cutting and for jumping to positions in the video. You can hide the thumbnails if you prefer that with a click on the toggle thumbnails button in the main interface.To cut a video, you’d simply select start and end positions for the cut jobs. What’s interesting here is that you can extract multiple clips this way from a single media file. Simply select multiple start and end positions.Click on “save media” to save the cut parts of the media file as a single file to the local system. Videos are saved in the same format as the original video, there is no option to convert the clipped parts of a video to another media format.You may enable the SmartCut feature in the preferences to enable frame-accurate mode. If you don’t VidCutter cuts at the nearest keyframe before and after the start and end markers. This is faster, but less precise.Tip: Check out these video editing programs as well:Cut videos with Lossless CutCute Video Audio Merger: combine video and audio on WindowsHow To Crop Videos With Free SoftwareClosing Words and verdictVitCutter is a straightforward, simply to use, video cutter for Windows, Mac and Linux devices. It is an ideal program for users who want to cut videos quickly without having to use a full blown video editor for that purpose.It takes a couple of minutes to cut a video using the program. Just load it, select start and end time for the cutting, play the video from those positions to make sure the cutting position is accurate, and save the new creation to your system.VidCutter lacks advanced options: there is no option to cut multiple parts at once or to save progress to continue the operation at a later point in time.Still, if all you require is some basic video cutting, VidCutter is certainly a program that you can do for the job.Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 5 votes Software Name VidCutterSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page https://github.com/ozmartian/vidcutter Advertisementlast_img read more

Dr. Schwartzberg noted that “[t]his prospectively evaluated, large, population-based study from British Columbia determined that initiation of external-beam RT up to 20 weeks after BCS, in the absence of adjuvant chemotherapy, was associated with similar outcome to earlier initiation. Delay beyond 5 months significantly compromised both the local-regional failure rate (10 percent vs 5.6 percent) and breast cancer–specific survival. He added, “Left unanswered is how the interspersion of adjuvant systemic chemotherapy, typically given after BCS and before RT, would affect these results.”For more information: www.oncologystat.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more
