We went to the crisis with low debt,” Balls said on the Andrew Marr show yesterday. In a combative performance, Balls accused George Osborne of “crushing” the economy with spending cuts and a hike in VAT and called on the chancellor to chart a different course. “Osborne has got to get out of this denial where he thinks there’s only one approach. There’s no doubt he’s a good politician, but is he a good chancellor? Good chancellors are flexible, they change their minds when the evidence changes,” Balls added. Meanwhile, Balls audaciously claimed that Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England, did not agree with the government’s fiscal tightening. He said: “I think if the governor… was to come out and say the country’s on the wrong track, that would cause a crisis. I don’t think that Mervyn King in his heart of hearts really believes that crushing the economy in this way is the right way to get the economy moving.”King has repeatedly backed the coalition’s spending cuts, most recently as last week, often earning accusations of political bias.Balls also said that Labour would not keep the 50p top rate of tax permanently, and backtracked from calls to lower the top rate threshold from £150,000 to £100,000. Matthew Hancock, a Conservative MP and former adviser to Osborne, said: “Ed Balls still can’t accept that Labour didn’t live within their means, and he can’t accept that Labour would be cutting this year.” whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

South African church leaders plead for mining dispute resolution

An additional 11 people have died in the unrest.Speaking on 15 September after police and army troops were deployed against strikers, Bishop Jo Seoka, president of the South Africa Council of Churches said, “I am shocked and extremely angry to hear today that the police are out in full force and people have phoned me telling me that workers have been shot at.”Justice Minister Jeff Radebe ordered a crackdown on Sept. 14 saying government would no longer tolerate the violence, threats and intimidation taking place in the mining sector.The mine protests have spread to six platinum and one gold mine, threatening South Africa’s economy. The police confiscated dangerous weapons and blocked peaceful marches by mine workers on Sept. 15.Seoka said it seems as if both government and Lonmin misread the situation and now what seemed resolvable might become an untenable situation.“Government must be crazy believing that what to me resembles an apartheid-era crackdown, can succeed … such crackdowns in the past led to more resistance,” he said.“I am pleading for high levels of tolerance from both sides,” Methodist Bishop Paul Verryn told South African Press Agency on Sept. 14.“We have already seen the result of strong willed stances … I am praying to God that we do not repeat the same mistake,” he said.

Journey of Hope 2017 holds special meaning for TCU Pi Kappa Phi members

The philanthropy has numerous programs, including one called the Journey of Hope. The Journey of Hope is a cross-country bicycle trek that raises funds and awareness for people with disabilities. Each year, Pi Kappa Phi members across the country raise $5,500 to enter the bike ride.The ride has two missions: To create awareness and support for people with disabilities and special needs, and to have an impact on college guys giving them the experience of service and leadership, said Bruce Rogers, a Pi Kappa Phi alumnus. Rogers started the Journey in 1987. He said after he finished law school, he wanted to combine his love for biking with raising funds and awareness for people with disabilities. He went to the CEO of The Ability Experience, Durward Owen, with his idea and they loved it. Within the year, he found other Pi Kappa Phi members to help plan routes and start the first ride. Today, the Journey of Hope covers 32 different states, cycling over 12,000 miles combined and begins in one of three locations: San Francisco (North), Los Angeles (South) or Seattle (TransAmerica) in early June. All locations meet in Washington, D.C. on Aug.12.Since the Journey of Hope began, Roger’s legacy has not only spread across the country to other Pi Kappa Phi chapters, but also to his son, Layton Rogers, a sophomore Pi Kappa Phi member at TCU. When Layton joined the Pi Kappa Phi chapter on campus, he said he was excited to enter the ride for the first time as a member himself, but he didn’t expect what kind of impact this ride would have on him. “Originally it was about following my dad’s footsteps, but it involved something greater than that,” he said.This past summer, Layton said he was proud because he rode 4,330 miles with the team, but he was even prouder when he witnessed the impact their funds and riding made on the lives of people with disabilities through their “friendship visits.” Friendship visits were planned visits to organizations for disabled people where team members socialized, saw what their funds purchased and gave out grants ranging from $2,000 to almost $5,000 to the organizations. During a friendship visit in Garden City, Kansas, Layton said that he befriended a nonverbal woman in a wheelchair. She demonstrated a device that the Journey of Hope purchased for her to enable her to walk. When she walked down the hallway using the device, everyone stood and cheered.  “She stopped halfway and gave me the biggest embrace that I’ve ever had in my life,” Layton said. “That interaction is why all those miles and fundraising are worth it. It’s good to give back.”Pi Kappa Phi members (left to right) David Gaw, Bryce Maloy, Layton Rogers and Sam Hudson cycled in the Journey of Hope over summerSam Hudson, a TCU student in the Master of Accounting program, took the TransAmerica route with Layton.“I wanted to challenge my physical and mental abilities,” Hudson said. “But the main reason was that I wanted to dedicate myself this summer to something that was bigger than myself to better others.”He added that some days were brutal with a heat index of 115 degrees and a 100 mile ride with 8,000 feet of climbing, but he powered through the days by remembering who he was doing this for.“I thought about someone I met at a friendship visit,” Hudson said. “They would give anything to be out here doing what I’m doing and that’s what really made it worth it to me in the end.”Bryce Maloy, a junior entrepreneurial management major, took the North route. He learned about the Journey of Hope through Layton and by volunteering at KinderFrogs, a school which predominantly serves young children with disabilities.“At first, I was a little hesitant; the physical aspect of riding a bike across the country was daunting, ” Maloy said.  Maloy said there was a lot of time to self-reflect as he rode for hours through three main mountain ranges of the United States: The Sierra Nevada, Rockies and Appalachians. There were days when he had to push through the pain.“It teaches a lot about yourself,” he said. “I’ve never done anything in my life to push my physical limits. It was hands down the best experience I’ve ever been a part of.” Cristian Migliarese + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU students participate in LEAPS day of service Cristian Migliaresehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cristian-migliarese/ Linkedin Cristian Migliaresehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cristian-migliarese/ Twitter TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Cristian Migliaresehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cristian-migliarese/ Cristian Migliaresehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cristian-migliarese/ Facebook ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook One cadet’s journey to becoming an Army officer Linkedin I am a Communications major and a Journalism minor.

Donegal home owners face much higher bin charges

Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee was hearing a PIL filed by one Ajay Kumar De related to the issues affecting health, safety and welfare matters in relation to Ganga Sagar Mela 2021 to be held soon. [NOTE: Every year on Makar Sankranti, lakhs of Hindus flock the Sagar Island in West Bengal’s South 24 Parganas district to take the holy dip and offer prayers at the Kapil Muni temple.] The Court, hearing the plea said, “We are of the view that the State has to assure this Court, that the persons in control of the medical department, particularly those who are well informed in the science of medicine, including preventive medicine, have delineated modes of excluding the spreading of the infection in these pandemic times.” Importantly, the Court remarked, “Even from the layman’s point of view, when congregations take dips in flowing water or stagnant water, in the form of ponds, rivers or other water bodies, oral droplets and nasal droplets of any person who is carrying the infection in this pandemic period, can easily percolate into that water body and thereby create chances of infection through those droplets transmitted virus.” The Court also noted that ‘social distancing’ would remain “a mirage” when such congregations happen. “This would be counterproductive to the preventive exercise that is due to the people at large. Even in terms of Disaster Management Act, the primary essential focus ought to be fundamentally on preventive disaster management”, said the Court. Regarding organizing the Ganga Sagar Mela in 2021, the Court remarked, “A grimmer situation should necessarily prompt the State to make more rigorous provisions having in mind the duties of the State. It is in consonance with the fundamental right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. The pandemic situation which has visited us now is not something on which there could be any roll back through human intervention, without protective measures being in place.” Lastly, the Court directed the State Government to have a report in the form of an affidavit placed on record through a Medical Officer at the highest level in the State Government service, clearly delineating the modalities of the preventive management of the situation if Ganga Sagar Mela is permitted to be held this year. The Court further said The measures indicated should take care of congestion on the banks, in the water bodies, in the roads and other available places including the places where public are provided eateries, toilets and other facilities. The imposition of restrictions and enforcement of social distancing norms as well as use of mask and due sanitization in terms of COVID management protocols ought to be clearly spelt out on behalf of the State Government in such report in the form of affidavit. As per the Court’s order, the decision of the State Government in that regard has to be placed before the Court on Friday (08th January). Case title – Ajay Kumar De Vs.

Comparison of short period TID morphologies in Antarctica during geomagnetically quiet and active intervals

rzodwnnlq

first_imgTravelling ionospheric disturbances with periods in the range 10 < τ < 30 min were observed by an HF Doppier network on the Antarctic Peninsula. A distinction was made between TIDs associated with geomagnetically quiet and active intervals, in the expectation that their morphology might depend on the degree of magnetic activity. During quiet times the short period TIDs have speeds less than 300 m s−1 and may be classified as Medium Scale TIDs. An anticlockwise diurnal azimuth rotation is established, with waves tending to propagate in the (modelled) antiwindward direction. Waves associated with magnetically active intervals often have high speeds and do not generally conform to the simple azimuth variation described above. These differences are explained in terms of perturbed neutral wind patterns and the existence of different wave sources during active times. These observations are presented in the context of previous morphological wave studies. The geomagnetic dependence observed in Antarctica may explain some of the conflicting or ambiguous conclusions resulting from investigations at other locations.last_img read more

We have a lifeguard stand out in front of our office on Battersea Road in Ocean City where we collect keys right from the old tenant’s car window. Once we receive the keys from an old tenant, we move forward with preparing for the new tenant.Second, the owner of the property works with a cleaner to have the home cleaned between every tenant. Each housekeeper has a checklist of what needs to be done and checked for in each residence. We ensure the cleanliness of each rental and are at your side if an issue should arise.Third, we prepare for the new wave of renters coming to town for the weekend. Check-in starts at 2pm that Saturday. On check-in days, we set up a tent outside where we have music, water, soft pretzels, cookies, banana bread and a picture station for the tenants as they wait to check in. We hope this starts your vacation off on a great foot!Not only do we want our renters’ experience in the property to be exceptional, we also want to welcome you with a great check-in experience in America’s Greatest Family Resort with a hassle-free check-out.
