Despite having concluded a three-year broadcast deal with TEN Sports for the I-League and the Federation Cup, IMG-Reliance is still groping in the dark for the title sponsor of the premier league of the country beginning on Saturday.And the chances of finding a sponsor in the next two days are extremely bleak. If IMG-Reliance, the commercial partners of the All India Football Federation (AIFF), eventually fails to find any, it would be the third straight year when I-League will be played without a title sponsor.Even the sale of broadcast rights was not a win-win situation for the AIFF at all. Although they were sold on multiple platforms, they did not include radio, an IMG-Reliance official confirmed.It is sad situation how IMG-Reliance completely forgot about radio, which remains one of the most followed media in a country of more than billion people.The only consolation for the AIFF – and IMG-Reliance – is that a deal with a regional television channel is set to be concluded on Friday.”We have got pretty less money than last year. We have almost finalised a deal with Kolkata-based Channel 10 for the regional rights but the amount is certainly not a patch on what we were expecting,” a IMG-Reliance official told Mail Today.Another embarrassment for the AIFF and IMG-Reliance was the last-minute pullout by TEN Sports from telecasting the Federation Cup, which concluded last week.When IMG-Reliance failed to find a producer for the second most important tournament of the country, the company desperately asked TEN Sports to do the production too.TEN Sports, owned by the Dubai-based TAJ Television, not only declined to produce but could not telecast the tournament in the absence of live pictures.Speaking about the Federation Cup fiasco, the IMG-Reliance official said that they were left in the lurch because they couldn’t finalise a production partner as TEN had said that they would not be able to undertake production work.For the I-League matches, IMG-Reliance has given the production rights to a Delhi based production house while the matches in Bengal will be produced by a regional production house.AIFF says it is helpless in this area as it has sold an unusually long, 15-year, commercial rights to IMG-Reliance for Rs 700 crore, starting 2010.All this shows a lack of home work and absence of proper planning while concluding various deals.IMG-Reliance is yet to crack the title sponsorship conundrum.It says that the lack of quality coverage and the fan following being limited to select cities are the main reasons for the tepid response from corporate houses.ONGC was the title sponsor for several years, but surprisingly even they are not interested any more even though their team has qualified for the I-League.The league’s popularity has nosedived and only matches in Kolkata, involving the Big Two – Mohun Bagan and East Bengal – seem to draw sizeable crowds while empty stands elsewhere.AIFF says it can’t interfere in IMG-Reliance’s affairs. “AIFF cannot afford to build its own stadiums and that is one of the reasons why we can’t organise majority of the matches under floodlights,” said an official.”Until sufficient infrastructure is created and we have control over it, we cannot satisfy the demands of the sponsors and broadcasters.”advertisement

Former French Open runner-up Simona Halep staged a remarkable fightback and saved a match point to reach the semi-finals with a 3-6 7-6(6) 6-0 win over Elina Svitolina on Wednesday.Romanian third seed Halep trailed by a set and 5-1 against the hard-hitting fifth seed but somehow dug herself out of a hole before storming to victory to set up a semi-final against Czech second seed Karolina Pliskova.Ukrainian Svitolina saved four set points at 5-6 in the second and then had a match point in the tiebreak which Halep saved with a brave backhand winner that kissed the sideline.A rejuvenated Halep clinched the second set with a forehand winner and predictably swept through the decider as Svitolina’s spirit sagged, sealing victory with an ace.Halep will play second-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova in the last four, while in the other half of the draw Latvian teenager Jelena Ostapenko will take on Swiss Timea Bacsinszky.Of all the quarter-finalists, none of whom had won a major, Halep looked the more likely champion with her claycourt pedigree and a run to the 2014 final when she was beaten by Russian Maria Sharapova.If she needed any more incentive, she can become world number one by winning the title.Yet when the match started in front of a Suzanne Lenglen court crowd that had just witnessed men’s champion Novak Djokovic being routed by Dominic Thiem, Halep looked to be going out of the tournament in sympathy with the Serb.While there was no obvious sign of the ankle problem the 25-year-old sustained in Rome, she could not get going and slumped 5-0 down before clawing three games back to make the set respectable at least.advertisementBut Svitolina, bidding to become Ukraine’s first female grand slam semi-finalist after a stellar year in which she has won four titles, charged into a 5-1 lead in the second set.Again Halep showed her mettle to stay alive but it still seemed in vain until she levelled at 5-5 and then went 40-0 up on Svitolina’s serve before the Ukrainian rallied to take the set into a tiebreak.Once Halep saved the match point, though, the momentum switched completely her way and she polished off the deciding set in 20 minutes.PLISKOVA KNOCKS OUT GARCIAWorld number three Karolina Pliskova reached the French Open semi-finals with a 7-6(3) 6-4 victory against Caroline Garcia, ending the French presence in the main draw on Wednesday.The second-seeded Czech, who had never got past the second round here before, mastered windy conditions to set up a meeting with either Romania’s Simona Halep or Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina.Relying on her powerful serve and groundstrokes, the 25-year-old Pliskova also benefitted from 28th seed Garcia’s numerous unforced errors.She sealed the victory in a tight contest on her first match point with a forehand winner down the line.

Most devices are all-LCD or -OLED across the entirety of the watch face. LG’s new Watch W7 takes the “unique” (and largely so-far panned , although as I write this I haven’t yet seen any hands-on reviews) approach of placing mechanical watch hands in front of the full-face digital display. Then there’s Martian’s G1 and successor products , which devote only a portion of the face to a mini-OLED display for text-only notifications. They also offer Amazon Alexa, “OK Google,” and Apple Siri voice interface options via an integrated microphone and speaker along with a Bluetooth tether to a companion smartphone, a capability which was the primary motivation for this teardown. Martian may not be a familiar name to you; it wasn’t to me until I saw its watches show up on closeout site Meh several times . Once the price dropped to $29 (plus $5 for shipping) I could no longer resist my curiosity and entered my credit card. Like Pebble , Martian started out as a Kickstarter-funded project back in 2012; the initial G1 family was succeeded by the mVoice (showcased here) and simpler mVip product lines. Martian returned to Kickstarter for the G2 family in late 2017 , but the company’s reportedly now down for the count ; its website is still up and running, but everything’s listed as being “out of stock,” and retailers like Amazon and Meh seem to just be working through remaining warehouse inventory. Enough of the background, on to the teardown. I’ll start out with a few obligatory unboxing shots: The mVoice product line was a fairly diverse combination of various colors and styles of faces, hands, and bands (which I suspect may have been part of the company’s challenge … too much proliferation can lead to line item management nightmares versus being willing to “not optimally serve everyone” in exchange for a more focused product portfolio … not to mention the lukewarm-at-best reviews ): I think mine was pretty nice looking; it was a bit difficult to begin to dissect as a result, knowing I’d likely never get it back together again intact and fully functional: Slipped behind the watch were two scant pieces of documentation: And tucked into the watch band was a micro-USB-to-USB cable (employed by the mVoice for charging purposes), which I’ll be able to use in the future: The left side of the watch encompasses the charging port (above) and speaker (below): while on the right are three control buttons and (below them) the microphone: Now for the back panel:The other thing I’ll potentially be able to use in the future is the (nice, IMHO) leather band; it’s 22mm in width, easily removed and replaced, and uses an industry-standard clasp: After removing four screws, thanks to my iFixit 64-bit driver kit , it’s time to dive inside: The item glued to the back panel and cable-connected to the PCB is, perhaps obviously, a lithium polymer battery. But what’s that within the circular cutout in the PCB … is that another coin battery cell (stay tuned)? The other obvious item discernible in this overview shot (aside from multiple ribbon cables and multi-wire harnesses) is the speaker in the lower right corner of the PCB.

Sri Lanka were handed a 10-wicket thrashing in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 opener against New Zealand on June 1 in Cardiff. The former champions return to the venue in a bid to get their campaign back on track as they face Afghanistan on Tuesday.Sri Lanka have been a shadow of their former dominant selves in the recent past and it showed in their opening match. After being bowled out for 136, Sri Lanka let New Zealand gun down the total in less than 17 overs.Overcast conditions didn’t help the Asian side as most of their batsmen, barring Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera, failed with the bat. The bowling didn’t inspire confidence either as the Sri Lankan bowlers were taken to the cleaners by Martin Guptill and Colin Munro.On the other hand, Afghanistan were handed a 7-wicket defeat by Australia in their World Cup opener on June 1. Afghanistan huffed and puffed to post 207 but David Warner and Aaron Finch made sure Australia didn’t have any problems gunning down the total.Both teams will be looking for better batting performances when they meet in the crunch clash in Cardiff.Pitch conditionsWhile Cardiff has been a high-scoring venue in the recent past, overcast conditions, expected for Tuesday, will aid swing bowling. Captains winning the toss will look to bowl as rain interruptions are predicted for Tuesday’s tie.Match predictionIt is safe to say the World Cup 2019 tie between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka is expected to be a close affair. Unless Sri Lanka’s big guns in Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews step up, don’t be surprised if they are stunned by Gulbadin Naib’s men in Cardiff.advertisementPredicted playing XIs for Afghanistan vs Sri LankaSri Lanka will look to include Nuwan Pradeep into their playing XI after his surprise omission from the line-up in their first match.

Liverpool’s three-time European Cup-winning goalkeeper Ray Clemence has called on Virgil van Dijk to be considered as a serious contender to win the Ballon d’Or.The £75 million ($95m) signing from Southampton transformed Jurgen Klopp’s defence, helping the Reds to win the Champions League in 2018-19 and amass 97 points in the Premier League.Clemence, who won five league titles with the Reds during his career, believes that Van Dijk was Jurgen Klopp’s most influential player last season and that he deserves to be recognised as the best player in the world. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “Who had the biggest influence for Liverpool over the full year? I would say it was Van Dijk,” Clemence told Goal at the launch of the Liverpool FC 2018-19 book. “There’s an obsession with attacking and creative players winning it.”It is more difficult to create and score goals but when you have an influence over a side like Van Dijk had last season, it wasn’t just what he did, it was what he gave. I think he should be a very strong contender for it.”Alisson and Van Dijk have been massive. I like to put the two of them together because I think the two of them have been a massive influence at Liverpool defensively and on the whole team as well.”A year ago, if Liverpool went 1-0 up, you thought they are probably going to need to score another goal because they could concede one somewhere. Van Dijk and Alisson being alongside young, talented players has meant they can win with a single goal.”The main two help with their experience. They are very difficult to beat and that’s what happened in the final. Alisson made a few excellent saves in the second half. I think Tottenham would have gone on to win the game had they got that equaliser.”Adding to the signing of Van Dijk, Liverpool splashed out £65m ($82m) to bring in Alisson from Roma and Clemence believes that he played a huge part in helping his side beat Tottenham in the Champions League final.”For me, the great goalkeepers have a presence about them,” he added. “Even before they do anything, they look like they are difficult to beat. They stand in that penalty area with size and agility. If they say something to a defender then they do it. He has all of that.”He is capable of great saves, but many are – he does it in tight games. He has a massive influence on the game. In the Champions League final, it was his saves as much as anything that won it.”Liverpool will now aim to go one step further in the Premier League and win the title in 2019-20. Clemence feels that, while they have a strong starting XI, they still need “one or two” new signings to help improve their squad depth.”It is difficult for a team to stick with what they have got in the modern game,” Clemence said. “If you stay still, people go past you. Man City won it last year and they will make a couple of signings. Liverpool will have to be competing with them.”In the last two years, Liverpool has had a good first XI, but the bench isn’t as good as Man City. Last season it got better with [Divock] Origi and [Xherdan] Shaqiri there. I think Liverpool only need a couple, one or two. It might disappoint the one or two who get replaced but you have to keep the competition high amongst the squad.”The most important thing was making sure that they won something. That’s got the monkey off the back of not winning anything for so many years. Hopefully, that will give them the motivation and the confidence to take it forward next year. It is the first time Liverpool have won something for many years.”Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web.

India Today Web Desk Abu DhabiJanuary 11, 2019UPDATED: January 11, 2019 10:54 IST Goals from Ali Mabkhout and Khalfan Mubarak in the 41st and the 88th minute helped UAE beat India 2-0 (AFC Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia missed as many as a dozen chances in their 0-2 defeat on ThursdayIndia slipped to second spot with three points from two matchesSunil Chhetri is confident of a strong show in their final Group A game against BahrainIndia suffered a 2-0 defeat in their second Group A match of AFC Asian Cup 2019 against the United Arab Emirates at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.Goals from Ali Mabkhout and Khalfan Mubarak in the 41st and the 88th minute helped the hosts register their first win of the tournament after a 1-1 draw against Bahrain in the tournament opener on Saturday.India were clinical in front of goal during their impressive 4-1 win over Thailand on Sunday but their finishing was far from impressive earlier in the day against higher-ranked UAE, who walked away with three points.India have now slipped to the second spot of the Group A table while the hosts, who were cheered on by more than a 40,000-strong crowd in Abu Dhabi topped the group.As many as three chances went begging in the first half. Ashique Kurniyan’s left-footed effort and Sunil Chhetri’s header from a brilliant cross from Sunil Chettri was kept away by UAE goalkeeper, Khalid Essa who was brilliant throughout the match.UAE put early pressure on India by creating a few chances in the opening minutes of the match but India quickly managed to organise themselves and find their feet.Not our day as the #BlueTigers suffer a 2-0 defeat at the hands of UAE and as a result, we remain with 3 points after our first 2 games.#INDUAE #BackTheBlue #IndianFootball #AsianDream: AFC Media pic.twitter.com/JZFwh2YiIeIndian Football Team (@IndianFootball) January 10, 2019Three huge chances went begging but credit should go to UAE goalkeeper Khalid Essa who dnied Ashique Kuruniyan and Sunil Chhetri in the first half. Chhetri rued the missed chance as he was unmarked at the far post when Anirudh Thapa swung it in nicely only to see his captain head it straight into the body of Essa.advertisementIndia continued to be impressive in the mid-field as well but their finishing boots were missing on the big day. They paid the price for it when Mubarak scored his first international goal to give the hosts the lead just break the half-time break.Entering the game after a 1-1 stalemate with Bahrain, UAE required full points full points, and the relief was palpable in their camp when Mubarak broke the deadlock.The joy would have been short-lived for the home team had the talismanic Chhetri’s attempt not missed the target by a whisker in the 43rd minute, this after the Indian captain had the UAE defenders in splits and managed to cut one through one of the gaps with Eisa noweher in the picture.Down by a goal at the break, India were not to be disheartened and made their intentions clear in the second half.Constantine brought in Jeje Lalpekhlua in place of Halicharan Narzary and the Mizo forward, who scored two minutes after coming off the bench in the 4-1 mauling of Thailand, nearly did an encore in the 53rd minute. Jeje’s volley went inches off the post.Three minutes later, India again experienced the so-near-yet-so-far moment when Udanta Singh’s shot ricochets off the bar. UAE got their act together and troubled the Indians occasionally and they also had one of their attempts blocked by the bar.We are ready to fight against Bahrain: Chhetri”It was a tight game. UAE are a good side, and they converted their chances. When you get your chances, you got to convert them. If we could have taken ours, it could have been different. We are still in the running. As a team, we are united and we are ready to fight, and that’s what we are going to do against Bahrain,” Chhetri said.India knew that they had a tough task in hand against the United Arab Emirates (UAE), who were not only the better-ranked team than them but also had the huge home support from the crowd.UAE are ranked 79th in the FIFA rankings while India are positioned at 97th. Even in Asia, India (ranked 15th) are seven places below UAE (ranked 8th). More than the battle of the quality of football and the skills, it was always going to be about the physicality.Against Thailand, India had shown no nerves early on in the match and only because Thailand failed to make the best of their opportunities, India stayed in the fight and eventually toppled their opponents.Also Read | Thibaut Courtois joins Real Madrid’s long list of injured playersAlso Read | Sunil Chhetri’s team donates fines worth Rs 50,000 to Indian Blind Football FederationAlso See: India go down 0-2 to UAEadvertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The Best Coffee-Infused Beers to Flip All the Switches The Ultimate Brewery Tour of Austin, Texas Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editions America’s Oldest City Has a Super-Modern Dining and Drinking Scene Editors’ Recommendations The transformation of the adventurous drinker’s palate is one of the most interesting side effects of consuming a lot of beer.The common path for many beer drinkers begins with lighter fare like sweet lagers and orange-tinted wheat beers. Hoppier brews are next, with pale and India pale ales adding bitterness and resin to the taste buds. That non-threatening start leads into darker porters and stouts and then veers toward more extreme interpretations of base styles that introduce complexity and boundary-expanding experiences.Beyond that pinnacle of technical mastery lies a category of more experimental brews commonly referred to as sours.Tasting your first sour beer can be an unsettling overload of the senses. It’s not out of the ordinary to experience a slightly painful pucker as your mouth attempts to deal with the intense flavors brought on by barrel aging, wild yeast strains or fruit additions. But once you develop a fondness for sours, you’ll only want to try more.For fans of tart flavors, fringe Belgian styles, wood aging and the general unexpected, there is a haven for your ilk: Wicked Weed Brewing’s Funkatorium in Asheville, North Carolina.Related Post: Explore Asheville N.C.’s Vibrant Beer SceneThe Funkatorium is home to Wicked Weed’s most unconventional beers. Located a few short blocks from the main brewery, it provides storage for their massive collection of barrels, a tasting room and outdoor patio.In addition to getting sample pours and buying bottles, the tasting room also provides tables and a small but tightly curated menu of small plates, snacks and sandwiches that are just as odd as the beer list.Canned eel, intensely garlicky popcorn and thick-toast peanut butter and jelly are offered to pair beside a handful of Wicked Weed’s core beers and an extended variety of specialty wild, sour ales crafted for the Funkatorium’s discerning audience.These are beers that are worthy of your travels. The Genesis Blonde Sour evokes bitter apple and tropical fruit with a sweet-tart twist. Oblivion Sour Red is in the traditional Flanders style but brings in the flavors of blackberries and dates. It’s easy to drink, giving ample opportunity to explore its intricacies.Wicked Weed’s Red Angel sour ale is so beloved that it has earned its own bottle release day festivities, where patrons line up for the chance to bring a taste home. It’s a transcendent burst of sour raspberries with a paint-peeling aroma that makes your teeth hurt before the first sip. But after it takes your breath away, it then steals your heart. Red Angel is an amazing feat of brewing, combined with an expertly managed aging process.Asheville is home to dozens of craft breweries and has rightfully earned its honorary title of Beer City, USA. But no beer lover’s visit to Asheville would be complete without a side trip to Wicked Weed Brewing’s Funkatorium to get a taste for the next level in brewing extremes with its impressive collection of sour, funky, small batch wild ales.

It is now looking to develop its business at the 8,500 square meter facility still further. While Menlo’s current Rotterdam-based customers lie predominantly within the high tech sector, the logistics capabilities of its personnel and suitability of the warehouse are also geared to handling life sciences, lifestyle and e-commerce product.Managing Director in Europe, Tony Gunn, highlights Menlo’s enthusiasm for the Rotterdam location. “57% of all Asian and American sourced products have a European Distribution Center (EDC) located in the Netherlands and a significant proportion of these are in the Rotterdam region. Part of the reason for this high concentration is the flexibility that the location allows dynamic supply chains,”“European consumer markets are changeable and our customers need to be able to react effectively to alterations in both sourcing and demand patterns. Menlo understands this well, working with our customers to fine-tune their supply chain solutions. As Rotterdam is so much at the heart of Europe’s transport infrastructure, our options in making such changes are greatly enhanced,” he explains.Indeed with key nodes in that transport network such as Schiphol, Brussels, Aachen and Dusseldorf all within a two-hour drive (and Frankfurt just four), and the hubs of the major freight integrators all less than an hour away, Menlo’s Rotterdam base ensures the physical dimension of supply chain flexibility.Operations within the facility also mirror this crucial adaptability, as Menlo’s core philosophy is one of continuous improvement. Committed to identifying and driving out waste, in terms of time, resource and cost from the logistics process, Menlo’s focus on the Lean approach to supply chain management is central to the company’s success, not just in Rotterdam but worldwide.

CRESTON, B.C. – Police say two people and two horses are dead after a highway crash in the southeastern B.C. community of Moyie near Cranbrook.RCMP from the Creston detachment say a tractor trailer was westbound on Highway 3/95 Saturday around 9 a.m. when it hit black ice and jacked knifed.They say the big rig then careened into the oncoming lane where it collided head-on with an eastbound pickup truck that was hauling a horse trailer.Police say the tractor trailer driver, a 59-year-old Edmonton man, was ejected from the truck and died at the scene.They say the pickup driver, a 51-year-old Cranbrook, B.C., man was trapped in his vehicle and also died at the scene, as did both horses in the trailer.A female passenger in the pickup was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, then later transported by air ambulance to a larger area hospital.Investigators say they believe icy roads, driving too fast for the road conditions, and the fact the tractor trailer driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt all contributed to the fatalities.
Amaravati: The non-BJP opposition parties are unlikely to meet on May 21 as Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee has requested TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu to fix a date after the declaration of results on May 23 for it, at the convenience of other parties.”Our leader is yet to take a call on this. It depends on the outcome of the elections. The meeting, though, is bound to happen after the 23rd,” a member of the TDP politburo said here on Monday.

She, however, expressed reservations over this, citing the impending counting of votes on May 23. TDP sources here aver that Mamata Banerjee expressed apprehensions over the safety of the EVMs stored in strong rooms across the country and, as such, there was a need for all opposition parties to keep a constant vigil to thwart the BJP’s “nefarious plans.” Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadShe also felt that opposition leaders should remain in their respective states to monitor the counting arrangements, as well as safety of the strong rooms. “Hence, she wanted the opposition meeting to be held after May 23. Anyway, the opposition meeting has to happen after the results are out,” the TDP leader said. Meanwhile, Chandrababu Naidu continued his tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying a certain despondency has crept in in the latter. “His latest utterances are an indication of Modis despondency. He is talking about Rajiv Gandhi, who died 28 years ago. He is also trying to derive mileage from the sacrifices of Army men,” the TDP chief said at a meeting of the partys Nandyal Lok Sabha constituency leaders here Monday.
Fracking firm linked to 2014 B.C. temblor says cause of recent quake not established by Tamsyn Burgmann, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 26, 2015 6:13 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 27, 2015 at 9:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VANCOUVER – A natural gas operation that halted work after a 4.6-magnitude earthquake in northeastern British Columbia last week has been linked to the largest earthquake in the province that’s been attributed to fracking.Progress Energy, which is owned by Malaysia’s Petronas, paused its operations after the Aug. 17 quake that occurred 114 kilometres from Fort St. John.The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has previously said that hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — by the same company triggered a 4.4-magnitude earthquake that was felt in Fort St. John and Fort Nelson in August 2014.Progress Energy responded late Wednesday, saying the cause of the recent quake has not yet been established.“The northeast B.C. foothills is a seismically active area with more than 6,000 seismic events each year, 99 per cent of which measure a magnitude so low that they are not felt on the surface,” said a statement from spokesman Dave Sterna.The company has voluntarily installed 17 seismic monitoring stations in its operating area, Sterna added.A report by the commission said fracking has caused nearly 200 seismic events in the Montney Trend, which stretches from the B.C.-Alberta boundary near Dawson Creek to the B.C. Rocky Mountain foothills.The report that investigated fracking, the process of fluid injection into rock to extract natural gas, looked into quakes recorded between August 2013 and October 2014.A statement from Rich Coleman, B.C.’s minister for natural gas development, said drilling must stop immediately and the commission must be notified if seismic activity reaches a magnitude of 4.0 or higher.“Operations can only resume once a mitigation plan — such as reduced pumping pressures — are agreed on by the commission,” he said.Coleman said quakes related to hydraulic fracturing are rare, with only about 2.6 per cent of fracking operations in the Montney linked to a seismic event.The province collects earthquake data at 10 stations throughout B.C.’s northeast.“We implemented preventive measures that make sense for our province,” said Coleman. “Seismicity can be managed through geologic understanding, pumping protocols and monitoring.”Energy giant Petronas is also working with the B.C. government on a $36-billion liquefied natural gas project, called Pacific Northwest LNG.The commission did not respond to a request for comment.Follow @TamsynBurgmann on TwitterNote to readers: This story has a corrected headline. A previous version had a headline that said the fracking firm caused the recent quake, but as the story made clear the firm says the cause has not been established.
The council removed two of the four warning signs on Tuesday due to the backlash.Local artist Jen Dixon described the decision to erect signs as “a shame,” adding: “We must have such a problem with stone theft that the beach is now littered with large red and yellow signs threatening prosecution.”They are so darn ugly on our beautiful beach.”It seems very heavy-handed to have that so many signs.”This new approach comes three years after a local council were forced to microchip flowers and shrubs due to people stealing them from public parks.Devon District Council said they experienced such “severe” theft of public plants that council gardeners resulted in microchipping them as a deterrent.Local Jackie Carpenter, who lives near Crackington Haven beach in Cornwall, said the signs “ruin the ‘beautiful place’ view”.“They also provide a horrible ‘police-state’ sort of environment,” she added.Lisa Ward, who also lives in the Crackington Haven area, said: “I have overheard visitors walking onto the beach commenting on how aggressive they look”.Cornwall Council which owns 57 of the county’s beaches said it “strongly urged visitors not to remove stones or sand”.A spokesman said: “It may seem harmless but given the many thousands of visitors to Cornwall’s beaches every year every stone removed could have an impact on coastal erosion, natural flood defences and wildlife habitats”.

However, critics have claimed the signs – which were installed in late July – are heavy handed and spoil the beach.In one case, the council traced a holidaymaker back to his home hundreds of miles away and threatened him with prosecution, resulting in the man driving a carrier bag of stones all the way back to the beach. Theft has become so common on the beach that the local parish council in Crackington Haven have had to put up several signs warning it is illegal. Credit:APEX/APEX A holidaymaker has been forced to drive hundreds of miles to return pebbles he “stole” from the beach after the local council threatened him with prosecution.The incident took place in Crackington Haven, Cornwall where beach pebble theft has become so common that the parish council was forced to put up several signs warning it is illegal.It came after visitors complained that they were being “aggressively” threatened with prosecution for taking stones home at the Cornish beauty spot.Removing stones from public beaches is illegal under The Coastal Protection Act 1949 and St Gennys Parish Council have warned that visitors who are found to be doing it could face a fine of up to £1,000 for leaving the area exposed to erosion.Parish clerk Barry Jordan said: “Those who saw the damage of the floods a few years ago know what water can do, take away the pebbles and the haven would be damaged during every storm.”Mr Jordon told The Telegraph that the council are not willing to name the gentleman due to data protection reasons.
A thirty-seven-year-old man of Plaisance, East Coast Demerara (ECD) claimed that an extreme state of hunger prompted him to “snatch” a cellular phone when he was brought before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts earlier today (Wednesday) to answer to the charge of simple larceny.It is alleged that Simon Persaud stole from the person of Adia Agard (Complainant), one Samsung smart phone valued at $60,000 on October 30 2017 at Avenue of the Republic, in Georgetown.Persaud readily admitted to the offence and told the court of presiding Magistrate Fabayo Azore that he was hungry and decided to try the “phone snatching thing” he had heard about. He said that after the complainant alerted the police in the area, he started to run “wild” neither knowing what he was doing or where he was going when he was apprehended by the police.“I’m sorry, it’s the first time I try something like this and I get catch”, he said in an apology to the complainant before the court.Upon hearing his explanation the Magistrate rhetorically questioned “What to do with you?” to which the accused suggested community service as he pleaded with the Magistrate not to send him to prison with hardened criminals.Moreover, he indicated that he was a labourer by trade and most of his family resides overseas with no one to pay his fine.Having considered all mitigating factors in the circumstances- the remorse of the accused and the fact that the phone was recovered among other things- the Magistrate sentenced him to serve six months community service at the Brickdam Police Station (Georgetown) on every Friday of the week.Persaud thanked the Magistrate and vowed to be a law-abiding citizen as he was happily escorted out of the courtroom.

THE IRISH MEDICAL ORGANISATION recommended yesterday that junior doctors say ‘yes’ to the Labour Relations Court proposals that will bring an end to junior doctors working shifts more than 24 hours and will establish financial sanctions to hospitals that are in breach of the European Directive on working hours.The HSE have agreed that by 14 January, no doctor will work more than a 24 hour shift and that all hospitals will be compliant with working time directives by the end of 2014.Breaching agreementsUnder the agreement with the IMO, any hospital found to be in breach will be sanctioned. Hospital managers will also face sanctions if their hospital breaks the rules.No additional payment will be made to doctors under the new agreement.Speaking on RTE’s Morning Ireland, Barry O’Brien, National HR Director for the HSE said he didn’t think the word “sanction” was an appropriate word to use, but said under the agreement there is a method in place to “incentivise compliance”.He said the IMO and the HSE had agreed to work collectively to maximise compliance by the end of 2014.Financial hitHospitals that are found to break the rules in relation to working hours will be hit financially.O’Brien said that the amount of money is dependent on the grade of hospital, stating that there are three bands of hospitals.The bigger hospitals will be hit with a yearly sanction of €650,00, band two hospitals will be hit by €350,000 and band three by €225,000.He said the hospitals would be penalised pro rata on a monthly basis if they haven’t complied.When asked what punishments hospital managers will face, he said that they will be subject to “HR procedures and policies,” which he clarified could be the reassigning of the responsibility of implementation to another manager or another manager could be reassigned their job.PatientsHe said that the HSE were working to reschedule patients that had their appointments and operations cancelled last week during the strike.O’Brien said they were taking it in good faith that an agreement had been made with the IMO and said they would not be waiting for the outcome of the ballot on November 14 to reschedule patient appointments.“We are taking it in good faith the agreement made and we are taking action, today, to reschedule those people who were discommoded last week,” he said.Read: IMO recommends junior doctors say ‘yes’ to LRC proposals>Read: Taoiseach tells junior docs and HSE: Go back into the LRC and sort this out>
