first_imgThe Nabarangpur parliamentary constituency of south Odisha, whose voters had demonstrated the importance of None Of The Above (NOTA) to political parties in 2014, is all set for an interesting fight this time. In 2014, sitting Congress MP Pradeep Majhi lost to Biju Janata Dal candidate Balabhadra Majhi by a narrow margin of 2,042 votes, while 44,408 votes were cast in favour of NOTA in this constituency reserved for the Scheduled Tribes. Mr. Pradeep and Mr. Balabhadra are again locking horns in this constituency. But after being denied the BJD ticket, Mr. Balabhadra has switched to the BJP. With an aim to defend its seat, the BJD has fielded State Transport Minister Ramesh Chandra Majhi. Bahujan Samaj Party’s Chandradhwaja Majhi is the fourth candidate in the fray.10 times winnerHistory shows that the Congress has a vote base in this constituency. The party had won the Nabarangpur LS seat 10 times in a row from 1962 to 1998, with Khagapati Pradhani winning nine consecutive elections from 1967. Even the nation-wide anti-Congress wave in 1977 could not halt his winning spree.BJP candidate Parsuram Majhi disrupted the Congress’ winning streak in 1999 and 2004. In both these elections, however, the BJP was in an alliance with the BJD in the State. In 2009, the BJP, after snapping its ties with the BJD, could not retain the seat. In 2009, youth leader of the Congress, Mr. Pradeep won from here, but lost in 2014.The parliamentary constituency includes Malkangiri, Chitrakonda Assembly segments of the Maoist-infested Malkangiri district, Kotpad Assembly seat of Koraput district, Umerkote, Jharigam, Nabarangpur, Dabugam Assembly segments of Nabarangpur district.Top Congress and BJP leaders have already addressed voters here. On March 8, a large number of supporters of Mr. Pradeep and the Congress had attended AICC president Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Jeypore in adjoining Koraput Lok Sabha constituency. BJP leaders feel Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Jeypore on March 29 would have an impact on the voters. BJP president Amit Shah had followed it up with a rally in Nabarangpur on Monday.last_img read more

first_imgFlorida defensive lineman Jachai Polite talks to the media at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday, March 2 2019 in Indianapolis. (Detroit Lions via AP)INDIANAPOLIS — Many headliners boosted their draft stock at the NFL’s annual scouting combine with a wonderful workout, a dazzling 40-yard dash, a brilliant bench press or, in Kyler Murray’s case, just standing up straight.Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat and Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf were the big winners along with Murray , but others saw eyebrows raised and their value lowered after costly injuries, bad interviews or pedestrian performances.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Hong Kong tunnel reopens, campus siege nears end View comments No. 4 Duke holds on to beat Wake Forest Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem The most serious injury came Sunday when Ohio State cornerback Kendall Sheffield tore a chest muscle while heaving 225 pounds in the bench press drill. A torn pectoral typically requires surgery and a year’s recovery.More disconcerting to teams are the players who can’t use injury as an excuse. That group this year included:—Mississippi left tackle Greg Little. He labored through the on-field drills and posted poor numbers in the 40 (5.33) and vertical jump (25 inches). Those were among the worst for O-linemen and he skipped the bench press altogether.—Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary. The Owls’ 5-foot-7, 203-pound playmaker piled up 3,300 yards and 54 touchdowns the last two seasons. But his hopes of shedding concerns about the level of competition he faced took a hit with a disappointing 4.66-second 40-yard dash.—Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield. His status as one of the few standouts in a rather weak running backs class took a hit when he was clocked in the 40 in 4.78 seconds, slower than the trio of punters and kickers who ran the 40 at the combine.

Brazil demand VAR explanation from FIFA

first_imgBrazil Brazil demand explanation from FIFA for VAR controversy with Switzerland Josh Challies 22:24 6/19/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Neymar ref cropped Getty Images Brazil World Cup Switzerland Following two contentious incidents in the 1-1 draw with Switzerland, Brazil have written to FIFA to ask for explanation on VAR usage The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) has sent an official letter to FIFA questioning the decision not to use VAR during their 1-1 draw with Switzerland.Brazil were left angered by Steven Zuber’s equalising goal in Rostov-On-Don, arguing that Miranda was pushed, and also believed they should have had a second-half penalty for a challenge on Gabriel Jesus by Manuel Akanji.In a letter addressed to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, the CBF questions the ‘conduct of referee Mr. Cesar Ramos and the video assistant referee Mr. Paolo Valeri’. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Addressing Zuber’s equaliser in the 50th minute, which proved to be decisive as Brazil failed to win their opening match at the World Cup for the first time in 40 years, a statement read: “It is evident that the Brazilian player Miranda, while on the act of defending, was clearly pushed and moved away by the goal-scorer Zuber.”Zuber deliberately pushes Miranda on two different occasions with two hands, the second occasion being much clearer, because the bodies of both players were more distant.”The action characterises a clear foul, which resulted in an undisputable advantage for Mr. Zuber, since Mr. Miranda was unable to defend and play the ball. The referee did not mark the foul and Mr. Zuber scored a decisive goal.”Arguing two ‘clear errors’ of the referee, the CBF also argued that Gabriel Jesus was fouled in the 74th minute and a penalty should have been awarded.”Gabriel Jesus, who was controlling the ball in the Swiss penalty area with a clear opportunity to score a goal, was held, also with both hands, by Mr. Akanji, who knocked him down and thus committed an evident penalty. The referee, however, did not intervene and let the action continue,” the statement added.Brazil meet Costa Rica on Friday, before finishing their Group E fixtures against Serbia.last_img read more

Shop Class – Indigo & Cloth

October 24, 2019 | xppcyhzz | No Comments

first_img Zach Klein Is the Reason We’re All Obsessed with Cabin Porn Why Every Man Should Care About Slow Fashion Editors’ Recommendations A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America The Barbershop Renaissance and Men’s Grooming Revolution, According to Fellow Barber’s Sam Buffa center_img In honor of a certain Irish-based holiday on Thursday, this Shop Class spotlights Indigo & Cloth, one of Dublin, Ireland’s best independent menswear stores, which was founded in 2007. Its assortment is a stylish pot o’ gold of quality international brands that range from Gitman Vintage and Oliver Spencer to Sandqvist, Saturdays NYC and Sunspel, and it offers international shipping for online orders. The space, at 9 Essex Street, also houses a company-run branding studio and café. Owner-founder Garrett Pitcher recently gave me the story of this Irish treasure….What is the background and history of the store?I worked in the fashion industry on the wholesale side before opening the store, which allowed me to travel quite a bit. I would see all the brands at the trade shows and the stores in other cities and wondered why it did not exist here in Dublin. I called the store Indigo & Cloth to represent a focus on well made clothing and craft.How large is it?We moved into Essex Street about three years ago; it’s four stories so quite big. The café is on the ground floor with some lifestyle goods, menswear on the first floor and the studio on the top two floors.What are your bestselling brands and specific items at the moment?It can change but right now Our Legacy is a standout. It sells well across all styles but it seems like every piece is a key piece these days. I have a real love of denim (hence our name) so personally I’m excited about the Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1966 501 style we took in this season. Norse and Portuguese Flannel are always strong performers too.How would you describe the store’s overall vibe, look and product selection?The vibe is very easy going. I like to think that we look after all the details in the background so when it comes to the shopping experience it’s very chill. We have a café in the store too which helps slow the shopping process for many of our customers. I find people are more comfortable with their choices and us as a result.Who is your “typical” customer?The dreaded question! We get all sorts but it tends to be a guy or girl who’s simply into nice things. The place looks good, the coffee tastes good and we stock good brands. Who knows, maybe it’s that easy!How would you describe Dublin’s fashion scene?It’s about average. People are so much more educated with social media, travel and e-commerce but it has not resulted in a big demand for better places to shop. As a result, it’s heavily high street in ladies’ wear and mass fashion brands in menswear. You can see how it will take a leap with the next generation but we are not there yet.What came first, the store or the branding agency? And how has having the agency made you a better retailer?The store came first though I was always doing something agency related for those first couple of years. The agency grew out of the store so it has always been our image builder. Having the agency allows us to be that bit more creative and adds to the brand as a whole.What special services does the store offer?We offer everything you would expect of an independent store. Our level of service is important to us and we see it as a point of difference. We are happy to go out of our way. I guess having a good coffee to hand doesn’t hurt.What has been the best part about running the store thus far?There are two things that come to mind. Firstly, the great people I have met. I must know half the city by name or face at this point and have made some close friends through the store too. The other thing is looking at customers’ faces that come into the store for the first time.And the most challenging aspect?We got hammered in the recession. We had three months before it hit where I thought: this may just work. It took six years to feel like we got through it and there was little we could do about that. We did open an agency and coffee shop and I wouldn’t swap it out now.How much of your business is done online versus the shop itself?Five percent We have a huge focus on it going forward as its will be important in how we grow the business. We know we have an international market there, which is great, but we have been very focused on our own premises up to now.What sets Indigo and Cloth apart from other retailers?Our experience. It’s something we really focus on. We operate from a beautiful building and have three parts of the business all under one roof. Its creative every day whether we have a new grind on, a new brand in-store or a new client. I think people feel that energy under our roof and hopefully a little online too.What’s next for the store? Will you open additional locations?We are coming out the other side of plans so nothing imminent other than more presence online. We may look at another café/store if the right spot opens up next year. We have a concept in mind. 15 Best Subscription Boxes for Men Who Love Gifts 1. Indigo & Cloth 2. Indigo & Cloth 3.

He said the virtual economy presents a “unique and attractive” opportunity for creative young Jamaicans to access employment overseas, while residing locally.He pointed out that Jamaica is well poised to take advantage of this opportunity, “due to our geographical and cultural proximity to the outsourcing markets of the western hemisphere”.Meanwhile, the Governor-General advised that the public sector transformation programme will continue, with 18 public bodies slated for rationalisation.Additionally, he said the central database of all government employees is slated to be created to facilitate evidence-based decisions.

NEW YORK — Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau says Canada takes seriously comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump about withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement.But Morneau told a gathering in New York today he had no insight into when that might happen.And the finance minister said he has a “high level of confidence” that the new pact negotiated to replace NAFTA will be ratified by all three countries involved.Morneau made the comments at an event co-hosted by Politico and the Canadian consulate in New York.‘This has been a battle’: Canada signs onto new NAFTA trade deal on sidelines of G20 summitTrump’s USMCA trade deal could be upended as Democrats vow to withhold support‘Not what we agreed to’: Canada at odds with U.S. changes to text of USMCA, source saysHe said it’s clear U.S. lawmakers are in the first stages of negotiations toward ratifying the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, known as USMCA.On Saturday, Trump told reporters he planned to give formal notice of his intentions to withdraw from NAFTA, which would give American lawmakers six months to approve the USMCA or have no free-trade pact with Canada and Mexico.“We take everything seriously,” Morneau said when asked whether he took the president’s comments at face value. “While we’ll have to watch and ensure we get through this next stage, we have a high level of confidence that’s achievable.”Larry Kudlow, Trump’s senior economic adviser, said he and Trump hadn’t spoken in detail about the president’s thinking.“I think he’s trying to light a fire under Congress — that’s my guess, my hunch,” Kudlow told a conference call with reporters.“The ceremonies, the signing — the president’s very happy with all of that. Everybody showed up. Trudeau showed up and so forth. And we’re rolling. Congress, on the other hand, is not rolling, and I think President Trump’s intent here was to light a fire under Congress.” read more

In his inaugural speech on 13 September 2016, he noted that this session will be special because his office will have the experience of working with two Secretaries-General: Ban Ki-moon, whose term ends on 31 December 2016, and Antonio Guterres, who was appointed by the UN General Assembly as his successor, on 13 October 2016.Emerging from a busy period that saw him chair multiple high-level meetings – including the GA’s annual General Debate – Mr. Thomson spoke to the UN News Centre, describing what it was like being on the podium of the General Assembly Hall, where the annual Debate takes place.Mr. Thomson: Well, this wasn’t the first time for me – I was a vice president back in 2011, and an acting PGA (President of the General Assembly) back then, so I had sat up there many times before. But it was just such a deep honour for my country really and the Pacific Island region, to find myself up there as the President of the General Assembly – the first time in history that that had been so for our region – so I was, I must say, proud from that point of view. UN News Centre: And of course you had your two grandchildren here up on the podium, and that must have been quite an experience for them. Mr. Thomson: Yes- they weren’t overawed by it; funny enough, I was on Skype with them saying, “How is it now that you’re back at home, everybody asking you about being up here?” And they were very nonchalant about it. My reason for getting (my grandchildren) up here was that I have the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda at my heart, and I am very conscious of the fact when those grandchildren of mine get to the year 2030, they will be young adults. So, I wanted to make that point to everybody because everybody has either children coming or children now who will be in the same position, that the stakes are so high for them that we have to all be committed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, for their sake. UN News Centre: Now you’re the man with the gavel – I think you had to use it several times to keep some of the rowdy delegates in line.I have led with my chin and said that the 71st session and my leadership of it can be judged as a failure if we don’t have movement on all 17 goals.Mr. Thomson: That partly comes from experience. I have observed over the years how the General debate, which is the high point of the United Nations’ year, when heads of state and heads of government come here from the 193 countries and debate amongst themselves the state of the world; I have observed over the years how there is not enough respect shown to the General Debate. Not only was there the rowdiness, which I think I controlled effectively this year, but there is the fact that the hall is often a quarter full, I would say – three-quarters empty – when a head of state is coming to make an address. It’s not good enough, and I want to address that in the 71st session: how we can show respect for the General Debate.UN News Centre: What are you looking forward to in the coming months?Mr. Thomson: The core of the work for me is the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and I have given my team – headed by Ambassador Williams of Grenada – the month of October to finalize our strategy and we will get rolling in November on how we can get the wheels turning on every one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, between now and the end of the session. I have led with my chin and said that the 71st session and my leadership of it can be judged as a failure if we don’t have movement on all 17 goals. UN News Centre: What were the highlights of the high level week for you?Mr. Thomson: It is all something of a blur now. I can say that because I think I had something like 80 to 100 bilateral meetings with the heads of state or heads of government or ministers of foreign affairs, and made over 40 speeches – it’s something I am going to have to read at my leisure, I think, one of these days, but I don’t remember too much of it right now to tell you the truth.UN News Centre: How is it possible for one person to juggle all of that? Mr. Thomson: I think you have to build up to it and I’ve been here 6 1/2 years now, and presided over a lot of boards and chaired the G77 and such things. You have to not be awed by the situation; you have to know that there’s a process that must be properly managed.UN News Centre: You’ve met some pretty high level diplomats and heads of state during this week, any highlights there?Mr. Thomson: Well it was obviously a great privilege to meet President Obama on his last visit to the United Nations as president, and we had a 15-minute session together back in the greenroom behind here that will be memorable for me. UN News Centre: What did he tell you?Mr. Thomson: That is off the record; but I do remember thanking him on behalf of good and ethical people around the world for the example that he set as a good and ethical man, and I did say to demonstrate the limits of what a good and ethical man can do as well in this world – but it was a memorable meeting. UN News Centre: Was there any low points of the week?Mr. Thomson: No, and to say that with such authority is because I’ve just written a letter to my team at the office and I’m seeing the Department of Conference Management this evening to congratulate both of them because it was seamless for me. I just basically went and did what I was told by them, and they just managed it superbly.Peter Thomson flanked by his granddaughters Grace (left) and Mirabel), addresses the Assembly before taking the oath of office. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas < Previous Next > “The stakes are so high” for future generations, hence the need to commit to the success of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs). That is according to Peter Thomson, President of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly. In a recent interview, Mr. Thomson spoke about why he invited his two grand-daughters onto the stage at the commencement of this GA session, hoping to make a strong case for the 2030 Agenda.

UN Photo/Eskinder DebebePeter Thomson visits the Sustainable Development Goals Media Zone set up at the Visitors’ Plaza of UN headquarters, during the general debate of the Assembly.Peter Thomson meets with António Guterres, Secretary-General-designate. The General Assembly appointed Mr. Guterres by acclamation, to serve as the next Secretary-General of the United Nations. UN News Centre: How will you measure that movement? What are you expecting? Mr. Thomson: That is a very good question and it’s one that I will be able to give you the answer to in the end of October after the strategy is finished, because we are putting in place something measurable for each of the 17 goals. UN News Centre: Your predecessor, Mogens Lykketoft, of Denmark, was very keen on transparency within the General Assembly, especially in the selection of the next Secretary-General, what’s your position on that? Mr. Thomson: On transparency, I very much want to continue the level of transparency which he has exercised. I want it, by the end of the 71st session, to be just a way of doing business here at the United Nations. For example, I have had meetings with the president of the Security Council today, the president for October – which is Russia – and I’ve had a meeting with the president of the ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council) today. Now there will be summary memos of both those meetings; what we discussed, that will be circulated to all 193 missions. UN News Centre: But for all the good intentions ultimately the PGA and the rest of the members actually are pretty powerless in terms of their inputs into the decision, aren’t they? Mr. Thomson: I don’t think we are powerless, what has been demonstrated through the process this year is that the GA has an opinion on all these candidates. We have exposed their strengths and perhaps weaknesses through Q & A and we have had a very useful role to play in that regard. So I think we influence the process in a big way. And every Security Council member that I speak to has acknowledged that. UN News Centre: So can you give me some of your highlights? Mr. Thomson: Well, there were some very important meetings which took place apart from the General Debate, when you think of the high level meeting on refugees and migrants; the outcome of that – the New York declaration on refugee and migrants – was ground breaking. I really do think that we stepped up our humanitarian response to both the refugee and migrant category and we will be working on that in the 71st session, in preparation for what is going to happen in 2018 on the migrants compact. And also worthy of mention was the meeting on the right to development; very important for developing countries in particular; also the anti-microbial summit, where we would have to increase world awareness, given the fact that antibiotics will no longer be working in the near future, and we will have to have a new area of medical research as a result. So together with the fact that we had that very inspiring SDG moment at the beginning of the General Debate just to remind everybody what is at the core of our work going forward. My thanks to people like Richard Curtis who put that together and Andrea Bocelli for that fantastic spirit-lifting rendition of Nessun Dorma and to Forest Whitaker and his companion who walked us through the SDG videos; very inspiring stuff. And I hope that all will continue to be done at the beginning of every General Debate between now and the year 2030, to remind us all what our main task is. read more

first_imgBERMERTON, Wash. (WSVN) — A 23-year-old man with autism had wanted a tattoo for years. But when his mom took him to get one done, they kept getting turned away.“As a child he loved the fake ones and would freak out when they washed off,” Sandi Green told KTVU about her son, who goes by the nickname ‘Buzz.’Green says her son repeatedly asked to get a tattoo over the years, but she told him he’d have to wait until he was older. Although she say she doesn’t care for tattoos herself, Green decided to make Buzz’s dream a reality for his 23rd birthday.After consulting with her son’s doctor, who supported the idea, Green took Buzz to local tattoo shops, only to either be turned away or quoted high prices.She said she understood why the shops hesitated, noting that her son is 6’3″ and 200 pounds, and it was unclear how he would respond to the tattoo process.They continued to search for shops, until meeting with tattoo artist Pat Masga at Northwest Inkorporated.Masga said that since Buzz was so sure he wanted the tattoo, the least he could do was try. “When Buzz arrived he had a huge smile. From the moment I met him and that’s when I told myself that this tattoo is getting done – no matter what adjustments I have to make,” Masga said. “Whether it took me five hours or five sessions, I was willing to do it. He sat like a champ, didn’t complain or quit, and we did it!”Buzz grinned from ear-to-ear with the final result: Tommy from the 1990s Nickelodeon show “The Rugrats.” Green says Buzz never wavered from wanting a Tommy tattoo over the years.Masga wrote about the encounter on his shop’s Facebook page, and the post quickly went viral. Just over a week after putting up photos of Buzz, the post has over 183,000 likes and 87,000 shares.“(Buzz kept) getting overpriced quotes and flat out told ‘no’ so they decided to check out my shop. Well guess what? He sat like a rock, was positive all the way of what he wanted and finally got his dream tattoo!” Masga wrote in the caption. “So be like Buzz and don’t let them tell you ‘no’ or ‘not possible,’ cause damn it, me and Buzz?!, We did it!”Green says her son loves the end result, and eventually wants to add the rest of the Rugrats characters to his arm. She says Buzz is saving up his money for his next visit with his “new best friend” Pat.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Arriva drivers are taking part in a 24 hour strike as part of an ongoing pay dispute with the company. As a result Arriva buses will not run in Cheshire – as well as other areas of the North West including Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Lancashire. Last week GMB, the trade union representing drivers, announced plans for 11 further days in December. The proposed strike action in December includes the following dates: Monday December 4, Thursday December 7, Tuesday December 12, Wednesday December 13, Thursday December 14, Wednesday December 20, Thursday December 21, Friday December 22 and Saturday December 23. The union announced plans to ballot workers on further industrial action after negotiations with Arriva led to a pay offer which the union dubbed ‘insulting’. Read MoreDrunk ferry passenger sucked a woman’s toe and slapped her friend’s bottom – before damaging a mattress Eddie Parker, GMB organiser, said: “This below inflation offer is an insult to GMB’s Arriva members, to the people in the areas where Arriva operates and to the businesses and commuters who will be affected by further strike action. “Management has shown utter contempt to workers who are fighting to stop their pay being eroded by the impact of inflation – which this week hit 4%. “The company has made a cynical decision to put more profit before the needs of the communities they serve. “GMB and Unite believe the joint pay claim is affordable given the high profitability of Arriva North West. “To put that into context the highest paid director in Arriva North West has more money out into his pension each year than the average annual pay of a bus worker in the region. “The unions will be balloting their members next week on this offer with a strong recommendation to reject. “The current published strike days will go ahead as planned.” Arriva described the announcement of more strikes as regrettable and apologised to their customers. Read MoreVirgin West Coast workers vote to strike in pay dispute Phil Stone, Regional Managing Director for Arriva North West: “Arriva tabled a further improved and final offer for our drivers at a meeting with UNITE and GMB. “We have listened to the Union and responded positively by offering a one year pay deal that ensures the hourly rates of all our drivers remains highly competitive within the industry. The offer for Merseyside is 2.6% rising to 3% after 6 months. This is now the fourth improved pay offer that Arriva has made since commencement of the strike action. It is a fair pay deal for our drivers, and one that importantly ensures the long-term sustainability of the business going forward. Read MoreFirefighters tackle fire in bedroom “In the interests of our drivers and our customers, we have recommended that the union undertakes a confidential postal ballot for the membership facilitated by ACAS, the costs of which Arriva will cover. But the Union have declined this, and have confirmed they will be doing a consultative ballot at each garage next week.” “The Union has planned 11 more days of disruption for our customers. We hope this generous pay offer will be accepted and bring an end to the strike action.”last_img read more
