Srinagar, Oct 18 (PTI) Jammu and Kashmir government today said it has made a written test mandatory for candidates who apply for the post of teachers in the public schools.”We cannot afford to play with the lives of our children. This move will ensure that only quality human resource makes its way into the education department,” Education Minister Naeem Akhtar said during his visit to Degree College Sopore in Baramulla district.Akhtar said a big fraud was played on the people of Jammu and Kashmir through government-run schools where “square pegs are used to fill round holes”.Recalling the bombardment of Japans Hiroshima and Nagasaki cities by Allied Forces during World War II and how the country made education as its priority to rise as an economic superpower, Akhtar said the talented youth of Kashmir have proven their mettle in fields of Arts, Science and Sports.He also visited Mushroom Cultivation Centre at the college and directed the management to enhance capacity of the Sericulture Centre.During the visit, he also inaugurated Green House and Smart Classroom at the college.

India will be under pressure to bounce back against Australia in the second one-day international at the Gabba tomorrow. MS Dhoni’s men, despite dominating in certain patches in Perth, ended up losing by five wickets to concede a 1-0 series lead to the hosts.After a horrid time in one-day internationals last year, India started 2016 on a positive note. They lost Shikhar Dhawan early but Rohit Sharma smashed a record-breaking 171 not out and stitched 207 runs for the second wicket with Virat Kohli (91). India’s 309/3 was a middling total, especially because they were well placed at 149/1 after 30 overs.However, all would have seemed well after debutant Barinder Sran reduced the Aussies to 21/2. The pacers had finally come to the party for Dhoni but he was let down by his two most trusted spinners – Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja leaked 129 runs in 18 overs.Dhoni had no clue what hit him as centurions Steve Smith and George Bailey clobbered 246 runs for the third wicket and took Australia home comfortably.There will be plenty at stake for India, who can ill afford to lose the Brisbane ODI. The pitch is expected to be a belter and that means plenty of runs from two star-studded batting line-us.India’s top-order has been in fine form – Dhawan missed out in the first ODI but he did get some runs in the first warm-up. Rohit, despite his travais in Test cricket, has been in sensational one-day form – he now has innings of 150 in two successive series against South Africa and Australia.advertisementKohli carried on from his good form in the Delhi Test and hit a polished 91. Ajinkya Rahane, not yet sure of his batting position, enjoys batting in Australia and will be the middle-order pivot tomorrow.These men will need to fire at the Gabba after India appeared a little confused about the kind of target they needed to set Australia. Dhoni promoted himself up the order but did not really set the stage on fire. Rohit and Kohli, perhaps, should have pressed on the accelerator a lot earlier.This is an inexperienced Australian attack and India will need to make the most of the absence of Mitchell Starc.Australia will also miss David Warner tomorrow and for the third ODI Tuesday. Shaun Marsh, who was dropped from the Test side despite a fine hundred against the West Indies, could be included to partner Aaron Finch even though Usman Khawaja has been named Warner’s replacement.Smith, Bailey amd Glenn Maxwell make a deadly middle-order and they will be itching to go and play some big shots at the Gabba.Rohit was very disappointed after losing the opening game and hoped the team would bounce back strongly in the subsequent matches. If India can actually bounce back, the series will be nicely set up between two of the best limited-overs sides in the world.
Hyderabad, Jan 15 (PTI) To expand its DTH platform, Doordarshan plans to come out with new set-top boxes having MPEC-4 technology and provide 104 channels by March-end, its Director General Supriya Sahu said today.Free Dish, its DTH platform, at present has 20 million subscribers, and is the market-share leader among the seven DTH players in the country, she said.”The new initiative is that we are introducing conditional access system in our set-top boxes. We are getting into a new technology which is MPEC-4. So by March-end, we will be coming out with new set-top boxes for Doordarshan enhancing the number of existing channels from 80 to 104,” Sahu told PTI.She also said five channels of Doordarshan – National, News, Sports, Kisan and local ? are now available through digital terrestrial transmission (DTT).”DTT is already available in 16 cities. By the end of March this year, DTT will be available in Hyderabad, Srinagar and Thiruvananthapuram. By 2018, other 44 cities will become digital (where DTT will then be available),” she said.DTT allows Doordarshan viewers to watch channels for free on their Android mobile phones with a small dongle (available online and at some shops), and no internet or data connectivity is needed, said Sahu.She was here in connection with the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Unions first edition of international television film festival, hosted by Prasar Bharati.”We have capacity for ten channels (through DTT),” she said, adding that once IIM Ahmedabad, entrusted with the task of preparing a business plan on DTT roadmap, gives its report by March first week, Doordarshan would decide on its strategy of providing additional five channels through DTT.

Ishant Sharma’s funny banter with Rohit Sharma as Mumbai Indians outclass DCMumbai Indians crushed Delhi Capitals by 40 runs at the Feroz Shah Kotla to clinch the second place in the IPL 2019 points table on Thursday. scorecard commentary India Today Web Desk DelhiApril 19, 2019UPDATED: April 19, 2019 12:04 IST Ishant Sharma went wicketless in the match against Mumbai Indians at the Feroz Shah Kotla (Courtesy by BCCI)HIGHLIGHTSMumbai Indians (168/5) beat Delhi Capitals (128/9) by 40 runsMumbai Indians surpassed Delhi Capitals to clinch 2nd spot in IPL points tableHardik Pandya’s all-round performance helped him get the man-of-the-match awardIshant Sharma and Rohit Sharma shared a funny moment in the match between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians on Thursday night as the MI skipper tried to hit the DC pacer for a six in the initial stages of the game at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.Ishant Sharma was bowling the third over of the first innings and pitched a delivery on good length outside the off stump to Rohit, who came down the pitch and tried to smash it over long-on but failed to connect and the ball went through to the wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant.On his follow-through, Ishant said a few words to Rohit with a smile, the batsman was clearly amused and just looked down and laughed.https://t.co/FDsDkOLRaMCricBoll (@mycricboll) April 19, 2019Rohit went on to score 30 off 22 balls as MI posted 168 for 5 thanks to some big-hitting by the Pandya brothers – Hardik and Krunal. Quinton de Kock also made a crucial contribution at the top with 35 runs off 27 balls.But it was Krunal who top-scored for MI with 37 not out while his younger brother smashed 32 off 15 including three sixes and a couple of boundaries. Krunal himself managed five fours during his knock.The duo added 54 runs for the fifth wicket, 51 of those runs came off the last 18 balls which put Mumbai in a really strong position on a slow and turning surface at the Kotla.Chasing 169, DC made a mess of the target after Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed for 35 in the 7th over of the innings by Rahul Chahar. After a quality start of 48/0 in the first six overs, Dhawan’s wicket opened the floodgates as Chahar kept picking wickets and finished with figures of 3/19 from his four overs.advertisementWhile Chahar sent back Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw (20) and skipper Shreyas Iyer (3), Krunal Pandya sent back the dangerous Colin Munro (3) as Delhi were never really recovered from the early losses and eventually suffered their first loss in the last four games. It was also Delhi’s third loss at home out of four matches played here this season.Mumbai, on the other hand, took another step towards the play-offs with their sixth win in nine games, taking them to 12 points, while Delhi remained on 10 points from nine matches.Also Read | Using my brain well in IPL this year: Hardik Pandya after MI winAlso Read | We got outplayed in all three departments: DC captain Shreyas Iyer after defeatAlso Read | IPL 2019: Rahul Chahar joins forces with Pandyas to lift Mumbai Indians to No.2Also Read | Rahul Chahar a smart guy, love his attitude, says Rohit after MI crush DCFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Missouri defensive lineman Shane Ray (56) tackles Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld (7) in the third quarter at Faurot Field in Columbia, Mo., on Sept. 20. Indiana won, 31-27.Credit: Courtesy of MCTSure, the Ohio State Buckeyes didn’t take the field this weekend, but OSU fans across the country still learned a lot of things about the Buckeyes, the Big Ten and college football.OSU was the only Big Ten team that didn’t play Saturday, and despite not being in action, it moved up one spot in The Associated Press top 25 poll, to No. 22 from No. 23.So what can we take away from the OSU bye week? Plenty.1. Rankings don’t matter Following last week’s 66-0 drubbing of the Kent State Golden Flashes, the Buckeyes fell to No. 23 from No. 22 in the AP top 25. After a bye week in which all but one active Big Ten team won Saturday, the Buckeyes actually jumped back up to No. 22.With the BCS system gone and the College Football Playoff taking its place, rankings have become irrelevant and I don’t believe I’m alone in saying this: it’s about time.But, if you still care about the polls, don’t expect the Buckeyes to be jumping anytime soon. OSU is currently scheduled to take on just one ranked opponent this season — No. 9 Michigan State on Nov. 8 in East Lansing, Mich.If the Buckeyes want to make an impression on the voters, they’ll have to beat the Spartans.2. The Big Ten isn’t dead … yetAfter week two saw the Big Ten lose three prime-time games, it seemed like the conference was locked in the proverbial cellar until further notice.Following Saturday’s performance, the Big Ten has resurrected itself — at least for the time being. Without OSU playing, 12 Big Ten schools walked away with victories including Indiana’s stunning 31-27 upset of then-No. 18 Missouri of the all-mighty SEC.The only loss the Big Ten suffered Saturday was a 26-10 final in which Utah dominated Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich.The game, which was delayed more than two hours in the fourth quarter because of a fantastic lighting display, ended with Michigan playing two quarterbacks and not scoring an offensive touchdown.Other notable games included Nebraska beating the University of Miami at home and Wisconsin racking up 756 total yards on Bowling Green. Most said the Big Ten was down, but after Saturday, it’s not out. 3. There is no powerhouse team thus farLast season, we saw the Florida State Seminoles dominate every team that got in their way before squeaking by Auburn to claim the 2014 BCS National Championship.Without their Heisman trophy-winning quarterback, the No. 1 Seminoles needed overtime and a few lucky bounces to defeat a Clemson team that was led for the majority of the game by a true freshman quarterback. No. 2 Oregon needed all four quarters to inch past a Washington State team that lost its season opener to Rutgers at home Aug. 28. The Ducks might, however, have the future Heisman winner on their team as quarterback Marcus Mariota led Oregon to a 38-31 win and tossed five touchdown passes without throwing an interception. 4. Cincinnati lacks consistency OSU is set to take on its intrastate foe Cincinnati this weekend, and suddenly the Bearcats don’t look as intimidating.Cincinnati struggled to defeat the Miami (OH) Redhawks on Saturday, a team that has not won a game in its last 20 tries.Bearcat redshirt-sophomore quarterback Gunner Kiel, who threw for six scores and 418 yards in Cincinnati’s first game against Toledo, looked less impressive against the Redhawks as he threw two interceptions on the way to a 31-24 Bearcat victory. Cincinnati was forced to throw the ball 39 times Saturday, largely because its running game was shut down. The Bearcats were held to just 3.3 yards per carry, finishing with only 99 yards on the ground. Needless to say, the Buckeye pass defense, which has been under scrutiny for more than a year, will be tested early and often against Cincinnati. 5. Penn State should not be ignoredPenn State senior running back Bill Belton (1) carries the ball against Rutgers at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J., on Sept. 13. Penn State won, 13-10.Credit: Courtesy of MCTYes, I know they played the University of Massachusetts, but the Nittany Lions are playing with a very large chip on their shoulders. Penn State is one of just two undefeated teams left in the Big Ten, and it absolutely dominated the Minutemen, 48-7, on Saturday afternoon. Sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg is a star in the making, and is leading a team that just recently found out it is bowl eligible for the first time since the 2011 season. There is nothing scarier than a hungry football team and if OSU, or any Big Ten team, has aspirations of winning a Big Ten title, they better have the Nittany Lions circled on their calendar. The two teams are scheduled to play Oct. 25 in State College, Pa.
Tributes were also paid to Mr Thomas by his twin sister, Nathalie Brohan.She said: “Xavier, you were a true ray of sunshine for my sister and for us all. You were such a beautiful person, so endearing. You always said: ‘What matters in life is to live every moment of life as intensively as possible, to never have any regrets’.”Your philosophy of life must remain an example to live for us all because life is a precious jewel.” Ms Delcros, who was seriously injured in the attack, said in a statement: “I wish, during these difficult times, to pay tribute to the exceptional man you were and will still remain for us all. I love you. Your Christine.”The 45-year-old’s body was found in the water near Limehouse, east London on Wednesday.The Metropolitan Police identified the Frenchman, who had been visiting the city for the weekend, as the attack’s eighth victim.His 24-year-old daughter Noemie described her father as a man who was “very faithful” to people, often turning professional acquaintances into friends.She said: “The things that were important to Xavier were his children and his work. Xavier would not be content with a quiet life, he needed to always discover more and he would include his children as soon as possible.” The girlfriend of a French tourist knocked into the River Thames as terrorists ploughed a van across London Bridge has paid tribute to an “exceptional man”.Xavier Thomas was walking with his girlfriend Christine Delcros on Saturday night when he was run down at the start of the murderous trio’s rampage. “Xavier, my love, my sun, you have marked my heart for ever as no one had been able to before,” 45-year-old Ms Delcros said.”I will cherish you intensively in my heart and that way our love will link us forever. You have been a father who did everything for his children and such a caring lover to me, that you could only be loved.”The death toll had for days stood at seven in the wake of the atrocity while Mr Thomas’s loved ones made desperate efforts to establish his fate.Specialist officers from the police marine unit then began combing the murky waters of the Thames after witnesses reported seeing someone fall in.He was found downstream of London Bridge. After mowing downs throngs of pedestrians, the terrorists jumped from their vehicle and unleashed a barbaric knife attack on nearby Borough Market, where they were shot dead by police.Mr Thomas was one of three Frenchmen killed in the atrocity, along with Alexandre Pigeard and Sebastien Belanger. Ms Delcros was badly injured by the speeding vehicle on Saturday night, but was not knocked from London Bridge by the impact.

As the search continues for the missing Guyanese fishermen who were attacked, robbed and tossed overboard in Suriname by Guyanese pirates, pilots of a private aircraft have confirmed that they saw at least four bodies off the coast of the Wai Wai bank. One of the bodies locatedFollowing the sighting, the pilots have since notified the police of the coordinates and they have confirmed that search parties are already in the Wai Wai bank area and are waiting the change of the tide to move closer to the mountains. Surinamese officials have related that the bodies were sighted some 30 miles from where the attack took place and believe that the others might be around the same area. Missing: Bharat HeralallNews coming out of the Dutch Speaking country suggested that the bodies are yet to be recovered but all attempts to do so are underway. On Saturday last, four boats were attacked by pirates in the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Wia Wia bank. A total of approximately 20 fishermen were reportedly robbed, beaten and thrown overboard. At least three managed to swim to shore and reported the incident to Dutch law enforcement officials. The names of the missing men have not been officially released. This publication was informed however that 49-year-old Bharat Heralall of Annandale East Coast Demerara may be one of the men missing following the attack, in addition to those Guyanese who have been identified as missing such as Ramnarin Singh, Glenroy Jones and Ganesh Beharry, among others.The Surinamese Government in a statement on Tuesday afternoon had said that a helicopter was dispatched to continue the three-day search with the hope of rescuing more of the missing fishermen or at least retrieving their bodies.Meanwhile, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in a release said it remains gravely concerned about the matter involving the fate of the fishermen, who have been reported missing.“This is a tragedy and we empathize with the families, who continue to be in anguish given the state of affairs. The horror that reportedly unfolded once again highlights the danger that our country’s fisher folk face every day to earn their livelihoods and to provide for their families” the party said while calling on “government to make every effort and take urgent steps to ensure that fishermen are found.”Moreover, the PPP is calling on government “to ensure that the families are kept informed of the efforts being made…We hope for a swift resolution of the situation and that the families can be comforted during their time of distress.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related2nd pirate attack leaves 1 dead, crew members missingMay 3, 2018In “Crime”Fishermen resume operations after deadly pirate attacksMay 13, 2018In “latest news”Six nabbed offshore Suriname over first pirate attackMay 4, 2018In “Crime”
Operations relying on screening as a key component in their value chain are now able to maximise product quality, uptime and profit by closely monitoring their vibrating screens to achieve peak performance and efficiency, thanks to a wireless Vibration Analysis System and Vibration Analysis Partnership Program from WS Tyler. The system and the program can help mines and quarries enhance product quality, improve productivity, reduce unscheduled maintenance and extend screen life, all of which translate to more profitability.“We set out to create vibration analysis options that will positively impact the bottom line for mines and quarries,” WS Tyler Technology Manager Dieter Takev said. “We’ve accomplished that by designing technologically advanced systems that cater to the unique characteristics of vibrating screens and which are user friendly.” The goal of the vibration analysis system is two-fold. On one hand it offers the capability to conduct preventative and predicative maintenance. On the other, it pursues the ideal screening performance by optimizing the parameters of the screen in a way that particles find as many opportunities as possible to pass screen openings. The Vibration Analysis Service is an in-person program that customers can utilise at intervals they deem necessary for their operations. Through the service, certified WS Tyler technicians visit customers’ sites to collect data from the vibrating screens. The technicians are equipped with signature wireless vibration analysis systems used for monitoring, data collection and analysis of speed, stroke and overall performance of any vibrating screen.Following each analysis, WS Tyler provides a detailed, easy-to-understand report that helps mine and quarry operators to better understand the interaction between their feed material, screen media and vibrating screens. Unlike standard diagnostic services, Tyler’s Vibration Analysis report not only contains all the data and information from the analysis, but offers a translation of the results into complete and easy-to-follow recommendations for improving the tested screens’ performance, maximising screening efficiency and minimising unscheduled downtime.To help customers maintain consistently high performance, WS Tyler also offers a complete, ongoing and technology-based Vibration Analysis Partnership Program. Through the program, WS Tyler provides the complete Vibration Analysis Technology Kit, consisting of eight wireless Bluetooth accelerometers that are attached to the outside of the vibrating screen to take readings at intervals determined by the customer; a hand-held data collection and analysis device (PDA); the analysis software/batteries, and chargers. With the hand-held device, customers easily download vibration data and visualise initial findings. For a more in-depth report, customers simply transmit the data to WS Tyler via email. The company provides feedback to customers within 24 hours by sending a simple one page report, containing all recommendations. The process also creates historical data that customers and WS Tyler can use to evaluate performance over extended periods.Initial training on the program ensures each customer knows how to work the vibration analysis tools, how to submit the readings and what to look for in the reports. WS Tyler will provide this training at their facility in St. Catharines, Ontario. It consists of a combination of classroom and infield sessions designed to familiarise operators with the system, its readings and the recommendations. WS Tyler’s new programs work hand-in-hand with the company’s Pro-Deck approach. The Pro-Deck approach optimises screen media performance by incorporating the ideal screen media for each of the three separate phases of the screening process.
BundesligaDaniel NarcisseMarcus AhlmMomir IlicThierry OmeyerTHW Kiel ← Previous Story Vlado Bozic left Meshkov Brest Next Story → Ljubomir Vranjes with shortened list of players for the matches against BiH and Russia The four players that are leaving THW Kiel this summer, Daniel Narcisse, Marcus Ahlm, Momir Ilic and Thierry Omeyer played their last home game for the club from north Germany. THW Kiel hosted at home HSG Wetzlar, and won with 37:31 (18:15). THW Kiel started the game furiously with 9:1 lead, but slowly HSG Wetzlar found their way back in the game, and at one point trailed by only one goal, 24:23 for THW Kiel. However in the end the double winner this season woke up and with brilliant final 10 minutes of the game secured a 37:31 victory. THW Kiel legend Marcus Ahlm scored the final two goals of the game. At the end of the game there was small celebration and every player could give final speech to the crowd.
← Previous Story Kiel with +3 from Motor’s Hungarian home Next Story → Michael Kraus is back for Germany! Metalurg’s coach Lino Červar has caused a huge commotion and gained approval of large handball world public with the interview he has given to Balkan-handball.com. Červar, well known and celebrated Croatian tactician argued innovations in handball and he stood for bringing in a new rule: a timed attack, or so called “clock shot”. His ground was already stood by two great coaches, Alfed Gislason & Gudmundur Gudmundson. Shot clock is No1 theme of all handball arguments these days, and it has got people stating fanatically “for” and “against”. One of those who recently opposed this rule is Germany’s national coach Martin Hojberger, who stated that the new rule would change the essence of handball game. One opposite voice was followed by two agreeable: Antonio Carlos Ortega and Dragan Đukić stated that timed limited attack would improve quality of the game.Imagine a basketball game: last attack in game and one team is holding the ball, but the opposite team along with their bench and crowd are signalizing referees to raise their hands and show passive play. Would basketball as such be hugely popular global sport? Would its unpredictable crazy endings be talked for days if it wasn’t for the last-second shots which decide everything?On London’s Olympics 2012 handball has trilled the whole world with dynamic of the game. Variety of strength, explosivity, courage, playing with heart, duel combination of flexible and artistic moves… that is what makes a difference from other collective sports. But, there is an obstacle for everyone who would love to engage in this sport. It’s called: THE RULES. British and American journalists were writing about how fascinated they were with strength and potential of handball play, but how they, unfortunately, COULDN’T UNDERSTAND anything else about it. One of the biggest misunderstandings was about the attack, which lasts until the referee feels it has come to an end. How and why, they ask in all their naivite, but nobody could give them an adequate answer.Clear rules are the only way to make handball a global sport. If a person who watches a handball game for the first doesn’t understand what’s going on because of the rules – that person simply will not enjoy it. And certainly, if they don’t enjoy, then they will not watch it again, either on stands or on TV.In time of crisis that is plaguing Europe for years, handball needs new markets. And the only way to get new spectators is the go for perfection. Maybe the way handball is right now is quite alright with us Europeans, because we got used to autocracy of the referees, critics after the match – which are entirely product of human element. But why does human element even get to decide? Wouldn’t even referees be burdened out, since this critic is aimed towards the passive play rule?Sand handball is the handball of the new millennium. Without highly strict and complicated rules, but with rewarding of everything that is attractive: this simplified version of handball is becoming more and more popular with “non-handball” people. It’s quite simple – influence of the referees is smaller, and the satisfaction of players and spectators is bigger.Z.B & M.B
Shamrock Rovers 1-2 DundalkEAMON ZAYED GAVE Shamrock Rovers a lifeline they scarcely deserved when he struck six minutes from time in tonight’s Setanta Sports Cup semi-final first leg.Two Richie Towell penalties in the first half left the Hoops’ All-Ireland title defence hanging by a thread.And if they are to have any chance of turning this tie around when the sides meet again in three weeks, they will need a massive improvement on an unimaginative performance that matched the bleak conditions in Tallaght Stadium.It was Dundalk who played with the greater confidence throughout, though manager Stephen Kenny will know that they could have put this one to bed had David McMillan and Patrick Hoban been more clinical when they still held the upper hand in the second half.Instead they invited Rovers back into the game and were punished when Gary McCabe threaded a pass through for Zayed to finish.Both sides faced a quick turnaround following their weekend wins and, with Sligo visiting here in the league on Friday, the best indication of Trevor Croly’s priorities was on the team-sheets where he made six changes. Dundalk, who played on Saturday and had a day less to recover, only made three.It was one of the Hoops’ new faces, reserve goalkeeper Craig Hyland, who was the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons early on.He was lucky not to see red when he brought down John Mountney on 10 minutes and though referee Paul Tuite benevolently spared him an early bath, there was little he could do to stop Towell’s composed penalty.Towell was an obvious standout in a pretty average game and he doubled Dundalk’s advantage from the spot in the 33rd minute.Mountney made a nuisance of himself again and was tripped by Conor Kenna inside the box. Referee Tuite initially looked to have waved the Lilywhites’ appeals away but after a moment of consideration, and of consultation with his extended team of officials, he pointed to the spot again for Towell to convert.Croly looked to inject a bit of life into Rovers’ limp display by introducing Ronan Finn and McCabe early in the second half.But the better chances fell to Dundalk. First McMillan forced Hyland into a smart save from a one-on-one and then, after what was arguably the move of the match involving a brilliant raking pass from Towell and a measured touch by Ruaidhri Higgins, Hoban squandered a glorious opportunity from six yards out.Rovers did show some signs of life in the final quarter and gave themselves something to cling to six minutes from the end when McCabe provided the spark that had been missing for most of the night and Zayed supplied the finish.SHAMROCK ROVERS: Hyland, Madden, Kenna (c), Cornwall, Byrne, Kelly (Finn h/t), Bayly, Robinson (Brennan 83), O’Connor, Sheppard (McCabe 58), Zayed.Substitutes: Murphy, McGuinness, Heaney, Brennan, Finn, McCabe, Kilduff.DUNDALK: Cherrie, Gannon, Gartland, Boyle, Massey, Shields, O’Donnell (c, Higgins 52), Mountney (Meenan 80), Towell, Byrne, McMillan (Hoban 67).Substitutes: Sava, Horgan, Hoban, Higgins, Griffin, Kelly, Meehan.Referee: Paul TuiteStop everything!

QUESTION OF THE DAYWHY HAS FOROYAA NOT INTERVIEWED THE GRTS MANAGEMENT TO FIND OUT WHY THEY DISCRIMINATE PARTIES THAT ARE NOT IN GOVERNMENT?This is a very important question which tends to put Foroyaa on the spot. It is however correct that GRTS is a public institution. It can be put to check by an active public. One does not even need to go to court.No public institution or officer has a right to discriminate anyone and the office of the Ombudsman is established to address any such discrimination with speed. This is why such an oversight institution was established.The media is also given the responsibility to hold the government accountable by section 207 of the Constitution which states,“The press and other information media shall at all times, be free to uphold the principles, provisions and objectives of this Constitution, and the responsibility and accountability of the Government to the people of The Gambia.”So GRTS is still accountable to the public and Foroyaa will try to interview both the Director General and the Minister of Information to get their opinion on the issue of presentation of divergent political views on state media.

Alaska Mental Health Trust Legislative Liaison Jeff Jessee and McDowell Group Vice President of Anchorage Operations Donna Logan address the Senate Health and Social Services Committee on March 29 about the economic costs of alcohol abuse in Alaska. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The total costs from alcohol and drug abuse and dependence in Alaska are more than $3 billion per year, according to a new Alaska Mental Health Trust report completed by the McDowell Group.Listen nowThat amount is equal to roughly $4,000 per state resident. And while much of the recent focus has been on the opioid crisis, the report found that alcohol use causes more economic damage.Mental Health Trust legislative liaison Jeff Jessee said there’s a proven way to reduce these costs: Provide treatment to everyone who could benefit from it. He said state funding for programs that provide this treatment is limited.“It’s stunning to me how much effort is being put forth by this legislature in attempting to reduce the costs of government programs and departments that are at least arguably trying to contribute something positive to Alaska and Alaskans,” Jessee said.Jessee testified to the health and social services committees in the House and Senate on Tuesday and Wednesday. He noted the costs are greater than the gap between what the state government spends and what it raises in oil royalties, taxes and fees.The report found that one third of the economic costs from alcohol use are due to the lost income for the families and local economy of those who die from alcohol-related causes.Other major alcohol-related costs result from the expense of the criminal justice system, health care, motor-vehicle crashes, and welfare.Anchorage Democratic Rep. Ivy Spohnholz said the information makes lawmakers more aware of the problem.“I think that the report has done exactly what it was designed to do, which is to show the hundreds of millions and really billions of dollars that we spend each year as a state by not properly grappling with the issue of alcohol and also drug abuse,” Spohnholz said.McDowell Group Anchorage Vice President Donna Logan noted this is the fourth report her organization has completed since 2001. Each report has had successively more accurate information. This has led the cost estimates from alcohol misuse to rise by 50 percent in the last four years.“I think when you have better data and better modeling, the credibility of your study improves,” Logan said. “And people are making a lot of decisions with this data, and so we want to make sure it has as much integrity as possible.”While Alaska’s costs from alcohol are large, the rates of alcohol abuse and dependence in the state were similar to national averages, according to the report.
