(Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit explained his sons’ college decision during a segment on College GameDay this morning.Herbstreit had revealed at the end of November that his twin sons would be attending Clemson to play for Dabo Swinney.The ESPN analyst explained that decision this morning.“They’re going there as preferred walk-ons and a big part of that has to do with the culture,” Herbstreit said on ESPN. “As a dad and as a broadcaster, I’ve been lucky enough to get behind the scenes at Clemson the last few years. I’ve been blown away by the culture that Dabo has created. It’s not just Dabo. It’s the entire staff — the secretaries, the trainers, the team doctors, the SID. It’s different when you go to Clemson and you need to go there to really see it and understand it.“And that’s a credit to him and his leadership. Another mark of a great coach to me, whether you’re the start quarterback or just a guy trying to make the team, you’re treated the same. I think it goes back to his own experience at Alabama as a player. He runs his program through the eyes of that player who was at Alabama.”Herbstreit’s twin sons, Tye and Jake, play wide receiver and defensive back, respectively.They attend Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee.Clemson, meanwhile, is set to kick off against Notre Dame at 4 p.m. E.T.The game will be on ESPN.last_img read more

Poland’s DCT Gdansk Bans Dock Union Organisers

first_imgzoom Organisers of Polish dock union Solidarnosc were banned from accessing the country’s fastest growing port terminal DCT Gdansk.The ban at DCT Gdansk follows a protest by 30 dockers at the office of the CEO over the termination of a union leader’s employment contract last week, International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) reports.“Union membership at the port is approaching 50 percent. Despite this, management has failed to address union concerns over a number of important issues including pay, contracts, meaningful negotiation, consultation and holidays. It has also brought in a legal firm to handle negotiations with the union over a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) rather than dealing with the process directly,” ITF said.DCT Gdansk recently secured loans of EUR 290 million to expand its operations and plans to employ 1,500 workers to meet the growing demand for deep-sea services in Central-Eastern Europe. Some of this borrowing is secured through the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).ITF said that itS representatives are in dialogue with the bank over its performance requirement for clients, which stipulates that they will not discourage workers from forming or joining workers’ organisations of their choosing or bargaining collectively, and will not discriminate against workers who participate in such organisations.“It looks like DCT Gdansk is trying to deploy every dirty trick in the book to avoid dealing openly with Solidarnosc. Its treatment of union members and leaders is deplorable and unacceptable. We expect to see a new CBA shortly. In the meantime we will continue our dialogue with the EBRD, step up pressure on the investment banking group Macquarie which owns DCT and raise this problem with customers and the international trade union community,” ITF President and Chair of the ITF dockers’ section, Paddy Crumlin said.ITF dockers’ section 2nd vice-chair Torben Seebold is scheduled to meet with Polish union leaders in April to discuss providing international support to help their campaign.Image: ITFlast_img read more

Increase allocation for Delhi give funds to municipal bodies CM urges Centre

first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday met Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, a week before tabling the Budget of the new Central Government. In the meeting, the Delhi CM urged the Centre to increase the money allocation for Delhi, also to give funds to the municipalities and also to release pending fund for IGST which is a pending project.”I have also assured the Finance Minister that the Delhi government will co-operate with the Centre on every possible for the development of Delhi,” said the Chief Minister. Also Read – Kejriwal ‘denied political clearance’ to attend climate meet in Denmark”The Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister told the Union Finance Minister that Delhi contributes around Rs 1.5 lakh crore as Income Tax towards the Central exchequer, however in return Delhi gets merely Rs 325 crore as share in central taxes, which too has been frozen since nearly two decades. In comparison, the share of other states in central taxes is quite high,” noted a government statement. It further observed that the Delhi Chief Minister told the Union Finance Minister that the more the Centre invests in Delhi, it will lead to a boom in economy here and Delhiites will provide more tax collections to the Centre. Also Read – Bangla Sahib Gurudwara bans use of all types of plastic items”The Union Finance Minister was also apprised of the fact that the Centre provides grants to states for the civic bodies, however, Delhi has been deprived of this and therefore the Municipal Corporations are not getting any help from the Centre. The Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister requested Finance Minister Sitharaman to provide funds for the Municipal Corporations to improve their financial conditions,” noted the statement. The Delhi government also requested the Union to clear Rs 3,000 crore pending integrated goods and services tax (IGST) dues of Delhi. The IGST dues for the first year of the roll-out of the indirect tax in 2017-18 are still pending. “Met Union Finance Minister Ms Nirmala Sitharaman. Congratulated her for assuming charge of such an imp Ministry. Assured her of full cooperation from Del govt and stressed the need for Del govt and Centre to work together for improving Delhi,” tweeted Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Ahead of the Budget 2019, FM Sitharaman has been meeting Chief Ministers and Finance Ministers of every state in her pre-budget meeting exercise to seek suggestions and expectation of every state from the upcoming Budget. Delhi government, over the past, had been demanding that the share in central taxes and duties for it should be increased.last_img read more

OSU men finish seventh women sixth at Big Ten Championships

The Ohio State men’s and women’s cross country teams traveled to the University of Wisconsin’s Thomas Zimmer Championship Course this weekend for the 2010 Big Ten Championships. The results for both teams and their outlook for the remainder of the “championship season” portion of their schedules stand in stark contrast. Despite falling to the newly crowned Big Ten Champion Michigan State Spartans, a determined Buckeye women’s team scrapped for 162 points, which was good enough for sixth place in the conference. The Buckeye women placed two runners in the top 20, with senior Ellen Birmingham taking 10th overall with a time of 20:38:2 and freshman Meredith Wagner finishing 16th in 20:48.9. Birmingham’s effort earned her All-Big Ten Second Team honors and praise from OSU assistant coach Chris Neal. “Ellen’s effort today was the best individual [women’s cross-country] performance in the last 20 years at Ohio State,” Neal said. “The team as a whole ran very tough today.” Rounding out the scoring for the Buckeye ladies were sophomores Molly Jacobson and Tori Brink, and senior Sarah Foster, who covered the course in 21:20.6, 21:22.7, and 21:44.2 respectively. “We’re getting healthier every week, we’re running better every week,” Neil said, anticipating the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Championships. “We’ll be ready.” The Buckeye men’s team hoped to improve on its runner-up finish at last year’s Big Ten Championships, but fell to 12-time defending champion Wisconsin and could only manage a seventh place finish. On a day when the men’s squad needed solid scoring efforts from all of its runners, only senior Chad Balyo cracked the top 20 with a time of 24:10.2. Close behind was junior Jake Edwards who charged to 22nd place in 24:18.0. “I was very pleased with Chad and Jake today,” OSU coach Robert Gary said. “They closed well and moved well throughout the race.” Beyond Balyo and Edwards’ contributions, Gary described the day’s result as “very disappointing.” “We gave a pretty poor effort today,” Gary said. “The guys didn’t get out well, we were buried in the middle of the pack and we got out-hustled.” Trailing the Buckeyes’ top two finishers were sophomores Donny Roys and Chris Fallon, and junior Taylor Williams, earning times of 24:44.8, 24:45.4, and 24:45.3 respectively. “I never thought we’d fall all the way to seventh place, so we didn’t do ourselves any favors” Gary said. “I just hope our guys haven’t given up on the team.” read more

Facebook Deleted Thousands of Fake Accounts Ahead of German Election

first_img Podcasts Are TV Shows Now With ‘Limetown’ Trailer7 Icebreakers for Facebook’s New Dating Service Facebook has been in the news quite a bit the past few weeks under suspicion that the social media giant didn’t do enough to prevent foreign nationals from interfering with the US elections thanks to shadow advertising — a process that is quite illegal in the US. But, it seems, the company has learned its lesson and was hard at work deleting “tens of thousands” of fake accounts through Sunday’s German election.CEO Mark Zuckerberg said just before the election that he was committed to the integrity of the democratic process.“We have been working to ensure the integrity of the German elections this weekend, from taking actions against thousands of fake accounts, to partnering with public authorities like the Federal Office for Information Security, to sharing security practices with the candidates and parties. We’re also examining the activity of accounts we’ve removed and have not yet found a similar type of effort in Germany,” Zuckerberg said.Today, Facebook said that the numbers had grown an order of magnitude to tens of thousands. In a blog post, Richard Allan, VP of Facebook’s European Public Policy arm, outlined some of the steps the company had taken.“After reports of foreign interference in the run-up to the US and French presidential elections, we also worked closely with German officials on a number of initiatives to fight disinformation and make Facebook a safer and more secure environment for genuine civic engagement,” the post reads. “To prevent people from misusing our platform, we announced a new push to remove fake accounts by spotting suspicious patterns of activity. In the month before the election, we removed tens of thousands of fake accounts in Germany.”Facebook had initially pooh-poohed complaints that it might have mishandled parts of its business, allowing others to launch widespread misinformation campaigns in clear violation of US election advertising law. In response, the company has submitted records of its attempts to contain US interference as well as information on the fake accounts that had fraudulently purchased ads on Facebook during the US election process.In addition to deleting accounts, Allan stated that the company had learned a great deal from its past mistakes, and was now taking pro-active steps to “fight false news and support healthy civil discourse” by tooling it’s algorithms a bit better. Moreover, the company worked closely with election officials and the intelligence community to keep everyone on the same page.“People want to see accurate information on Facebook and so do we,” Allan wrote. “This is an ongoing effort – which is why we are doing everything we can to promote information security and permanently fight false news. As long as there are people seeking to disrupt the democratic process, we will continue working closely with our partners — in government and in civil society — to defend our platform from malicious interference. We’re grateful for the co-operation of our partners in Germany and beyond, and committed to supporting open and fair elections across Europe and the world.”It’s a shame we didn’t have these kinds of protections in place before, but, eh, what can you do? Still, this really calls attention to the outsize effect Facebook has on the way we receive information in the modern world. Social media makes up a huge chunk of what we consume on a daily basis, to think that it doesn’t have an effect, or not anticipating that other organizations would use that fact to ill ends was naïve to say the least.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Vancouver man found guilty of hitandrun

first_imgA Vancouver man was convicted by a Clark County Superior Court jury Thursday of striking a pedestrian with his vehicle, seriously injuring the man, and fleeing the scene.The jury deliberated for about 1 1/2 hours before finding Treven Perry, 33, guilty of hit-and-run injury accident in connection with the March 20 crash in Vancouver. In addition to the conviction, jurors also found there was an aggravating circumstance — the victim’s injuries substantially exceeded the level of bodily harm necessary to satisfy the elements of the crime.The victim, Ryan Moore, then 20, underwent surgery for multiple injuries, which included a head laceration, concussion, leg fractures and a broken pelvis. He was placed in the Intensive Care Unit afterward, court records show. Deputy Prosecutor Katie Sinclair said in an interview Thursday that Moore has still not regained the mobility he once had.Her co-chair on the case, Deputy Prosecutor Lauren Boyd, said the aggravating factor allows for a prison sentence up to five years in prison.According to an affidavit of probable cause, Clark County sheriff’s deputies arrived at about 1 a.m. to Northeast 131st Street and Northeast 42nd Avenue to find Moore had been struck from behind. The driver, later identified as Perry, did not stop.last_img read more
