Many reasons not to admire Trump

first_imgThe April 15 letter, “Efforts to impeach Trump based on lies,” stated that we don’t recognize all of Donald Trump’s accomplishments. This is my assessment: I don’t like his tone of voice, his vocabulary or the words he uses, and he’s immoral and prejudiced.I hate to say this, but I’m ashamed of him. My moral values are different than his.CONCETTA CANNIZZARONiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Niskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img

‘A form of betrayal’: Disability rights activists criticize ‘discriminatory’ jobs law

first_imgA coalition of disability rights activists and groups across the country raised their call on the government to repeal the newly passed Job Creation Law, arguing that it violates the rights of disabled workers.“Disability groups were never involved in the deliberation process. It’s a pity, considering the relevance of the Job Creation Law, which will affect the lives of disabled people, too,” said Fajri Nursyamsi from the Center for Indonesian Law and Policy Studies (PSHK), who represented the coalition in a webinar on Monday.The coalition also claimed the omnibus law embodied an “epistemic crime” by using the term cacat (handicapped) to describe people with disabilities, a step back in the efforts to foster respect and equality for them. Topics : “The term cacat is against the spirit of the Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities, which was ratified through Law No. 19 in 2011,” they argued.Furthermore, the coalition said the law scrapped Article 27 (2) of Law No 28/2002 on buildings, which stipulated requirements of accessibility for disabled people and the elderly.“The article is a form of state protection for disabled people to get accessibility inside buildings […] The removal of Article 27 also indicates that the Job Creation Law does not support the rights of disabled people in the workplace,” the group added.Read also: Problems in jobs law not only about labor sector: What we know so farcenter_img As part of a revision to the 2002 Labor Law, the Job Creation Law also stipulates that workers who are sick for a long period or become disabled due to an accident — thus making them unable to carry out their jobs after 12 months — may be laid off.”Such conditions for work termination is discriminatory and will badly affect disabled people,” said Nurul Saadah from the Disabled Women and Children Advocacy Center (Sapda). “Someone who becomes disabled in the workplace should be placed in a back-to-work program, and the company should provide the proper accessibility and proper accommodation for them to keep working without obstacles.“The omnibus law is not only a form of neglect, but it is also a betrayal of the disabled community.”The coalition also noted that the newly passed law still used the term “physically and mentally healthy” as requirements for jobs and certain positions, limiting the chance for disabled people to enter the workforce.Among their demands was for the government to immediately release the official copy of the law, both in audio and written form, to make it accessible for the disabled community.They also urged President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to issue a regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) to replace the Job Creation Law within 14 days, as they planned to file a judicial review petition to the Constitutional Court to challenge the controversial law.last_img read more

Wife faces 2 to 4 years in slaying

first_imgLANCASTER – A Lancaster woman who was accused of murder in the fatal shooting of her husband was convicted Wednesday of involuntary manslaughter. An Antelope Valley Superior Court jury deliberated for three days before acquitting Crystal Garcia, 30, of first- and second-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter. “It was an accident. The whole thing was an accident,” said Garcia’s attorney, Deputy Public Defender John Henderson. “This is good. It will be great to get the family back together. It has been hard on the children and hard on Mrs. Garcia.” The sentence for involuntary manslaughter is two to four years. Deputy District Attorney Ruby Arias did not respond to requests for comment. Garcia, who has been in jail since her November2005 arrest, remained in custody in lieu of $1million bail. No sentencing date was set. Garcia was accused in the Nov.15 slaying of 32-year-old Joshua Garcia, who was killed at the couple’s Lancaster home after an argument. The defendant telephoned the Lancaster sheriff’s station from their Gingham Avenue home to report that she had shot her husband accidentally during a fight, officials said. Prosecutors had said evidence indicated the shooting was not accidental. Henderson said on the day of the shooting Garcia had been thinking about committing suicide, took a gun with her into a bedroom, locked the door and went into a bathroom. “She was sitting on the toilet and crying and had cocked the gun. She said she didn’t know it was loaded,” Henderson said. “The husband broke into the bedroom, and we believe he grabbed for the gun, and it went off.” The bullet went through his hand, up his side and into his heart and then through the left shoulder, Henderson said. Garcia had threatened to commit suicide before, Henderson said. The couple has three children, ranging in age from just over a year to 10, authorities said at the time of the shooting. The children have been with Garcia’s husband’s sister, Henderson said. [email protected] (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

South Africa brand ambassadors

first_imgSenior managers from Absa Bank will soon be leaving for North and South America to investigate sustainable business practices and observe new trends that they can bring back to South Africa. Mpumi Mabuza of Brand South Africa said that in order to properly represent the country, the Absa group needs to understand the direction it is taking.(Images: Kgopi Mabotja) MEDIA CONTACTS • Barry Hiles  Brand South Africa  Digital content manager  +27 11 483 0122 RELATED ARTICLES • New slogan for Brand South Africa • Building a thriving African brand • Developments from the Brics summit • Deals a-plenty at fifth Brics summit Kgopi MabotjaBrand South Africa hosted a high-level delegation from banking leader Absa on 3 July, to hold discussions on how the country was perceived globally across a spectrum of issues including economics, politics, education and skills availability.The group from Absa were on a leadership training program run by the company; they will soon leave for New York and São Paulo respectively on a mission to investigate sustainable business practices and observe new trends that will contribute to South Africa’s knowledge and skills base.Speaking on the day, Enoch Malisa, head of debit and cheques at Absa, said the trip abroad will also help the group to “get a context for the role of South Africa in the world economy”.Mpumi Mabuza, Brand South Africa’s manager of stakeholder relations for business, said it was important that the Absa group understood the direction the country is taking, as a basis for their mission and to be good ambassadors of South Africa.“We invited you here today because you are going out of the country and you are brand ambassadors. It is important that we speak in one voice and remain consistent in our messaging because the way we are perceived outside our borders affects our brand,” said Mabuza.Brand South Africa’s research Manager Petrus de Kock presented a wide range of information, painting a comprehensive picture of South Africa’s position in relation to the rest of Africa and the world.De Kock said South Africa has made huge strides since the advent of democracy to position itself as a global player, and that its inclusion in the Brics bloc of developing nations and the G20 structures was an affirmation that its role in the continent and in the world was paramount.“We did not ask to be included in Brics – we were invited. China made a very strong case for our inclusion, and it’s a strong endorsement of South Africa’s growth in global governance. An important part in our messaging is to tell that story,” he said.Drawing a comparison between South Africa and other developing countries in Brics, De Kock said the country was on par.“If you look at the overall performance of Brics in the World Economic Forum’s competitiveness report, China is at 29, Brazil at 48 and South Africa is at 52, which means we are third in the group in terms of competiveness.“But if you look at South Africa’s overall performance in the financial market development we remain third in the world out of 144 countries. This is one of our key international messages as Brand South Africa,” said De Kock.He said if South Africa as a developing nation is ranked amongst the 40s and 50s in world then the country is on the right path. “The Obama visit is one of the important stories that attest to our recognition.” A great journey lies aheadDe Kock said in spite of the progress made since the dawn of democracy, there is still a great journey ahead. Brand South Africa’s specific focus leading up to 20 years of democracy in 2014 will be used to communicate the direction which the country is taking, as well as key government strategies such as the National Development Plan (NDP).“Twenty years of democracy is becoming quite a priority for us as Brand South Africa. In terms of messaging we have already started emphasising that point in some of our international programs. The NDP forms part of our key messaging,” De Kock added.He urged the Absa group to speak about the NDP whenever the opportunity arises – “Not only what the plan is about, but to raise awareness of our long-term policy projects projection. It’s important that we have the NDP which is a multi-stakeholder thing owned by the whole country, including business and civil society. All people here have a role to play in contributing not only to the debate but taking ownership as well.”The NDP, launched in early February is a long-term governmental strategy which aims, among others, to eliminate poverty and reduce inequality by 2030. According to this plan South Africa can realise its goals by drawing on the energies of its people, growing an inclusive economy, building capabilities, enhancing the capacity of the state, and promoting leadership and partnership throughout society. Major infrastructure developmentAsked about the major focus of the current administration under President Jacob Zuma, De Kock said that the infrastructure drive was central to the objective of developing a flourishing economy.“Hence we have the national infrastructure plan, which is in the ownership of the presidential infrastructure coordinating committee. I would say this has been a highlight of President Zuma’s administration.”De Kock said infrastructure alone could add colour to the Absa group’s discussions. “The kind of infrastructure we delivered during the 2010 Fifa World Cup is an interesting talking point, especially now that you will be going to Brazil.”Logan Redhi, Absa’s supplier relations manager, raised the point about South Africa using its stadiums post-World Cup, ensuring they did not turn into white elephants. “This makes a good selling point on sustainability. We have been able to hosts concerts, rugby games and many other events.” Talking about educationOn education and skills, De Kock said research shows positive indicators that education has become more accessible since democracy, even though its quality needs improvement. “Yes there can be a lack of skills, but we cannot forget that already we have tremendous skills in the mining, financial, and manufacturing sectors, so we must build on that.”Another possible talking point suggested by De Kock was the on-going discussions about the creation of a trilateral free trade area, a project that trade and industry minister Rob Davies is part of.“It will basically create a common market among Southern Africa’s developing nations and in East and Central Africa to connect about 650-million people. Free trade area will have a combined GDP of US$624-billion (R6.25-trillion),” he said.Redhi later said: “For me it has reinforced my thinking about the awesome country we live in.”Wyna Modisapodi, Absa’s corporate legal counsel, said the occasion was “an eye opener about the blossoming county that is South Africa.”last_img read more

Positive signs for future Olympics

first_imgIndia won two medals in shooting this time around, and even the number of finals-three-was the best ever for the team. With 11 shooters at the Olympics, we were among the top 10 in the world in terms of participation, and our position in the shooting medals table is also roughly the same.The message is clear- if you prepare shooters early for a competition as big as the Olympics, you will be rewarded. The target for the Rio Olympics has to be 15 shooters, which may not be as many as the Chinese or the Americans, but would be a sign of progress. It is imperative that India wins more medals in shooting.The most promising performance came from Joydeep Karmakar, who withstood the pressure of qualifying for the final through a shoot-off to perform brilliantly in the 50m rifle prone final and finish just outside the medals.He needs more wins at the international level to become a serious contender.We had a few people in with a shot at finals too, like Heena Sidhu and Ronjan Sodhi. I expect them to bounce back well since they would know how to handle the pressure now. And as far as a proven champion like Abhinav Bindra is concerned, expect him to come back with a bang. There are, of course, lessons to be learnt. Our shooters have to be wary of external pressures affecting their performances, since in some cases, the temperament rather than the technique dragged them down.The government and the federation have to work together and make sure that they get a vision plan in place immediately. Now that we have a pool of international-level shooters, the best need to be picked immediately, so that they can start training in right earnest from the beginning of next year itself. Shooting is India’s main sport at the Olympics, and it is also important that a physiotherapist and qualified mental trainers are at hand to help out the team. There should be no compromises on professionalism.advertisementAll this would help the shooters be on track for the next qualification cycle for the Olympics, which begins in 2014, and also the next two big events-the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and the Incheon Asian Games. This was also the first big test for the National Rifle Association of India’s new transparent, scorebased selection policy, and I don’t think anyone should have a problem with it now.The only amendment I suggest is to let the quota-winning shooter make the Olympic team automatically, since it would help them get down to preparations as soon as they bag the quota. That, as we saw in the case of the early qualifiers like Gagan Narang, is always an advantage.(The writer is a four-time Olympian and Arjuna awardee)last_img read more

Since the men’s NCAA Tournament went to a 64-team format in 1985, No. 16 seeds are winless: an imperfect 0-124 record.No. 16 seeds can be pretty bad basketball teams, of course. Often, they’re teams from small conferences that won automatic bids by winning their conference tournament in a series of upsets after having barely cleared .500 during the regular season. (Small-conference teams that win both the regular season and their conference tournaments will usually wind up with No. 13, 14 or 15 seeds instead.) Furthermore, No. 16s have the misfortune of being matched up against No. 1 seeds, which are theoretically the four best teams in the country.But being bad is one thing; going 0 for 124 is another. My hunch is that No. 16 seeds have been unlucky not to have pulled off at least one upset.Consider that in the 1998 women’s NCAA Tournament, No. 16 seed Harvard (those plucky upstarts) beat No. 1 seed Stanford. And in the men’s tournament, several No. 16 seeds have come close to winning. Two of them, Princeton and East Tennessee State, lost by a single point in 1989 to Georgetown and Oklahoma, respectively. The next year, No. 16 seed Murray State took Michigan State to overtime before losing by four.Meanwhile, plenty of No. 15 seeds have won. Well, not plenty, but seven of them have upset No. 2 seeds. And No. 14 seeds have beaten No. 3 seeds 20 times. These results suggest that 16-versus-1 upsets ought to be possible, especially because there isn’t always a whole lot of daylight separating teams from one seed to the next. As its choices this year made clear, the selection committee is not infallible. Sometimes a team gets seeded as a 16 when it should probably have been a 14 or 15. Sometimes a No. 1 seed should have been a No. 2 seed. If a No. 15 seed can beat a No. 2 seed, then surely a 15-seed that’s mis-seeded as 16 can beat a 2-seed that’s mis-seeded as a No. 1.But we can be more precise about this. In building our NCAA Tournament forecasts this year, we developed an Elo ratings system for college basketball. Although our forecasts for this year blend Elo with several other computer ratings, we can run Elo-based projections for past tournament games going back as far as we like.Here, then, is how Elo would have forecast every past 1-versus-16 matchup on the day it was played. Once we figure out the No. 1 seed’s odds of winning each game, we can simply multiply the probabilities to figure out their cumulative odds of winning all 124. It’s a long table, so scroll down to the bottom for the punch line. 1993Michigan2095Coastal Carolina146398.534.6 2006Memphis1931Oral Roberts162987.114.1 1985Oklahoma1963North Carolina A&T154495.795.4 1994North Carolina2082Liberty145098.433.1 2000Arizona1982Jackson St.139699.024.5 1986St. John’s2006Montana St.154094.470.1 2008Kansas2102Portland St.169895.511.8 2013Kansas2024Western Kentucky149997.76.5 2008UCLA2074Miss.

On average, Elo would have given the No. 1 seed a 97.6 percent chance of winning each individual game; the range runs from 99.9 percent (Duke against Florida A&M in 1999) to 87.1 percent (Memphis against Oral Roberts in 2006). But given 124 chances to pull a rabbit out of their hats, No. 16 seeds “should” have come away with about three victories, according to Elo. Furthermore, the probability of them having gone winless is only about 5 percent. I wouldn’t call the No. 16s phenomenally unlucky — we’re talking about odds of about 20-to-1 against, not 20,000-to-1 against — but this confirms my intuition that they haven’t caught very many breaks.The good news for No. 16 seeds is that their situation has been improving very slightly. Since the tournament introduced its play-in game in 2001, the average No. 16 to play a No. 1 had an Elo rating of 1504; before that, their average rating was 1470. The play-in games are helpful to the cause of the No. 16 seeds in two ways. First, the truly execrable No. 16s, like Florida A&M in 1999 (which came into the tournament with a 12-18 record in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), will be routed into the play-in game and will usually lose it instead of wasting one of the 16-seeds’ four opportunities. Second, the play-in winners will have a game of NCAA Tournament experience under their belts. That helps both in real life and for a team’s Elo rating, since Elo weights recent games (and especially recent tournament games) more heavily.So cheer up, Holy Cross, Hampton, Florida Gulf Coast University and Austin Peay State. Yes, you’re probably going to lose by 30 points.

first_imgFormer England manager Sam Allardyce has lambasted Manchester United star Anthony Martial, following the Frenchman’s performance versus Brighton & Hove Albion.Martial produced a poor performance in the first 45 minutes, with a lack of flair in attacking areas having then plagued the Red Devils throughout the second-half as they sought a way back into the game.Manchester United, on the other hand, looked an accident waiting to happen at the back, particularly in the first half.The likes of Eric Bailly, Fred, and Victor Lindelof were singled out for their dismal performances, but it is another of United’s star men, who also looked some way short of his best today, who has been targeted by Sam Allardyce tonight.”Martial’s not good enough for @ManUtd.”#beINPL #MUFC pic.twitter.com/gb9HlSOPezHarry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.— beIN SPORTS (@beINSPORTS) August 19, 2018Speaking as part of his punditry role on beIN Sports, former England boss Allardyce, never one to mince words, revealed his opinion that Martial is simply ‘not good enough for Manchester United’.Allardyce went on to claim that the French winger has not developed in any way as a player since his move to Old Trafford and questioned why Martial is not now on the level of the likes of Manchester City pair Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.last_img read more
