Now he is my friend and teammate,” said Pellegrini to Football Italia.“The best player I worked with was probably Edin Dzeko, as he really impressed me at Roma.

Juneau Creek Identified As Preferred Route For Cooper Landing Bypass

0 Comment

first_imgThis signing allows the State of Alaska to address the long-standing issues with the Sterling Highway between Milepost 45-60, which does not serve the volume of traffic, fails to meet modern highway design standards, and has safety concerns. Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen): “As you know we have some weekends in the summer, particularly  around dipnet season, where we feel the transportation of thousands of thousands of Alaskans through Cooper Landing will be much safer through the completion of this project.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Federal Highway Administration and Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facility signed the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Cooper Landing Bypass on the Sterling Highway, which concludes an EIS process. Challenges related to developing the project came from its proximity to the Kenai River and Lake, Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Resurrection Pass National Recreation Trail, as well as steep terrain, nearby historic and cultural resource sites, and limited right-of-way. The Juneau Creek Alternative was identified as the preferred route it deviates from the existing alignment more than the other alternatives—about 10 of 14 miles would be on a new alignment, according to the project website.The route would run north of Cooper Landing and the Kenai River, climbing the hillside and crossing Juneau Creek Canyon with a new bridge south of Juneau Creek Falls. The new segment would cross the Mystery Creek Wilderness area in the KNWR and would rejoin the existing highway at about MP 56.center_img The alternative includes one large bridge spanning Juneau Creek Canyon. It would be the longest single-span bridge in Alaska. The public comment period is now open on the identified preferred route by Juneau Creek and will end April 16, 2018. Once the comments are reviewed, a Record of Decision will be released.

Rodale to Launch NewsstandOnly Magazine for Parents

0 Comment

first_imgEmmaus, Pennsylvania-based Rodale Inc. is planning to extend its Men’s Health and Women’s Health magazine brands by launching a title called Children’s Health. The special newsstand-only issue, which will carry an initial print run of 750,000, will hit store shelves on September 15.“This is a newsstand special that represents our first look and effort in the parenting space,” Men’s Health publisher Jack Essig told FOLIO:. “Rodale has shown time and again that we have an unparalleled ability to successfully launch health and wellness brands across a variety of platforms. We look forward to using this same approach to help parents make the right decisions for their families.”With a $5.99 cover price, the 112-page issue features 15 ad pages, Essig said. Advertisers include General Mills, Ralph Lauren and Vtech. Rodale will donate a portion of its ad dollars to various charities that support children’s health, like Save the Children. A companion Web site will go live when the issue hits newsstands, Essig said.Children’s Health also will feature First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover and an interview inside. In addition, Rodale will publish interviews with Michelle Obama in the October issue of Women’s Health and the November issue of Prevention. President Barack Obama will be the cover story of the October issue of Men’s Health.The Men’s Health and Women’s Health articles, according to the New York Times, will publicize the Obama health care reform plan, with Men’s Health “strongly endorsing it.” The series was the brainchild of Men’s Health editor Peter Moore, who contacted the White House this spring with the idea of publishing articles about the healthcare plan across Rodale’s titles.Essig said the series poses no editorial conflict of interest. “As a company that publishes magazines about health, we would be remiss not to cover this important topic,” he said. “Each month, we provide our readers with the information they need to make decisions that impact their lives. This is both a timely and topical issue that we know our readers have a strong interest in.” According to the New York Times story, Rodale is taking a “try-it-and-see approach” with Children’s Health, indicating that Rodale doesn’t have specific plans to publish the magazine regularly.last_img read more

iPhone PreOrder Sets New Record Shipment may be Delayed

0 Comment

first_imgEver since the wrappings came off the latest iPhone, Apple Inc has been inundated with orders. Apple released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphone on 9 September.As expected, the demand has outrun the supply as a result of which, customers may have to wait for another three to four weeks for the latest device. The company has announced that iPhone 6 would go on sale from 19 September in US, for which Apple began accepting online orders from Thursday.The 4.7-inch version would be available next week from 19 September, the company said; while the larger 5.5 inch iPhone 6 plus version model may take another month’s time.”The response to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been incredible with a record number of pre-orders overnight. Pre-orders are currently available online or through the Apple Store App,” Reuters quoted spokeswoman Trudy Muller.Other telecommunication device retailers like Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint Corp too have announced a delay in shipments for up to six weeks.Analysts opine that Apple’s latest larger display devices and re-designed models may hit roadblocks in production and may not plunge into bulk sales immediately.The company is yet to announce the date for its release in China — the world’s largest smartphone market. Hence, Chinese customers could have to wait till the end of year to be able to buy the latest Apple products.iPhone 6 orders have exceeded the expectations of the company this year. The figures recorded are much more than last year and the year before, AT&T’s chief executive of mobile and business, Ralph de la Vega told investors at a conference in New York.”It is such a great thing to wake up in the morning to know that you have hundreds of thousands of orders already before you even have a cup of coffee,” Ralph de la Vega said .Meanwhile, the Indian grey market and e-commerce sector have had a field day since the launch. The products were offered at twice the original price on a few website. For instance, on eBay India, a 16 GB iPhone 6 was being offered for ₹1,00,000, while the expected market price is not expected to shoot beyond ₹50,000.last_img read more

Chennai floods to weigh significantly on earnings in OctDec quarter TCS

0 Comment

first_imgWhile Chennai is just starting to recover from the recent floods, India’s largest IT firm, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), said that its third-quarter revenues will be significantly impacted by the worst floods witnessed in the city in nearly 100 years. TCS’ earnings have already disappointed the Street’s expectations in the past several quarters.The Mumbai-based IT major, which employs over 65,000 people in Chennai, said employee attendance is lower than normal despite many of its facilities in the city started operating from 7 December.”While majority of facilities in Chennai opened for normal business functioning on 7 December, 2015, attendance rates were lower than normal as employees were still recovering from the flood’s aftermath,” said TCS in a filing with the BSE.”Chennai is one of TCS’ largest delivery locations with over 65,000 employees,” it said.TCS said other than mission-critical activities, normal business functioning of its Chennai facilities had to be halted all week since December 1 due to the extreme weather conditions and flooding of the city after incessant rain.”This is expected to have a material impact on the company’s revenues in the seasonally weak third quarter ending 31 December, 2015,” it said.Earlier this week, the company said it had set aside Rs 1,100 crore for its flood-hit employees in Chennai.Under the Rs 1,100-crore relief fund, the Mumbai-based IT major will extend interest-free cash advances to its employees advances “in the range of Rs 1 lakh and up to a maximum of equivalent to three months’ gross salary.”last_img read more

Germany set to deport two home grown terror suspects

0 Comment

first_imgGermany said Tuesday it will deport two men arrested on suspicion of planning a terror attack, despite the fact that while their parents are foreigners, they were both born in the country.This is the first time in Germany’s history that such a decision has been taken, said a spokesman for the region’s interior ministry, quoted by the German news agency DPA.The country, like many European states, has historically subscribed to the idea of “jus sanguinis”-citizenship is determined by the nationalities of one or both parents and not by one’s place of birth.The decision also seems to be a first step in the country’s hardening anti-terrorism efforts, three months after a Tunisian national hijacked a truck and rammed it into a crowd at a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people.The two men, a 22-year-old of Nigerian origin and a 27-year-old of Algerian descent, were arrested in a police raid on February 9 in the central city of Gottingen, the region’s interior minister Boris Pistorius said.He confirmed that the federal administration court approved the deportation order after a petition by his ministry.The men, classified as “dangerous” by police, were known to authorities through their affiliation with Salafists.In a series of raids, police found an Islamic State (IS) flag and seized a gun in Gottingen where both men lived with their families.However, police could not determine whether the suspects intended to use the firearm in a possible terror plot. Investigators then declined to pursue criminal proceedings.The men will likely be deported quickly and will be barred from Germany indefinitely, DPA reported.Germany has remained on high alert since the December 19 attack by Anis Amri in Berlin that also injured 56 people.Four days after the attack, Amri, 24, was shot dead by Italian police after travelling through several European countries before heading to Milan.The rampage in Berlin was claimed by the Islamic State group, which released a video in which Amri is shown pledging allegiance to IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.Germany had rejected Amri’s asylum application half a year earlier, but he could not be expelled because of Tunisian bureaucratic delays.That led German Chancellor Angela Merkel to urge North African states to step up border controls and expedite procedures to repatriate migrants whose asylum applications are rejected.last_img read more

Cravings between life and death

0 Comment

first_imgBratya Basu’s literary invasion into the near-death experience (NDE) is a twist in the tale of otherwise a gripping story of soul searching of a fatally injured man in the coma. The playwright chooses a middle-class Bengali protagonist who represents the perception of the entire class about their daily chores, ambitions, accomplishments, failure, wiliness, inherent family politics and their rationale to defend themselves in their lives.The play progresses lyrically by dissecting the mind of the protagonist and constructing the discourse of a common man in the society who struggles hard in balancing between building his career and struggling for a satisfactory family life. He stumbles quite often to get up again and move on. His vices and dogmas are generally criticised hard in his society but he shows the courage to confront them. ‘Ami Anukulda ar Ora’ is a short play which blends the real with surreal, moves between likelihood and implausibility, revolves around dreams and reality of a commoner by indicting and challenging the social system. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAvi Chakraborty of Asoknagar Natyamukh has shown noticeable maturity in producing a difficult play. He has skillfully brought OBE (out of the body experience) on stage to handgrip the enormity and spread of introspection. Somesh, 54 years of age, a marketing manager of a private firm, meets with a serious accident and slips into unconsciousness with a little chance of recovery. It is in this condition that reality and dreams cross boundaries when his friend of yesteryears, Anukulda, comes to visit Somesh. We see Somesh in his teens in dialogue with Anukulda, whose nagging and blunt behavior irks him but reminds him of his nostalgic past. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe most poetic, emotive and surrealistic part of the play happens when his unborn, aborted daughter who if born would have been a teenager, comes to visit him to remind Somesh of his complex intimate relation with his wife. The playwright’s creative resourcefulness brings the kindliness of a father-child conversation which silently makes the Electra complex perceptible between them. In the concluding part, Somesh faces ‘Godot’ of Samuel Beckett where he admits that while he might have faced ‘Iblish’ to experience ‘hell’ on earth, he still wishes to live for a minority few for whom it is worth living. Charming Rishav Basu as Somesh is very good in his role in the play. He, with his impressive diction and gracious body movement, carries the play effortlessly on his shoulders as a protagonist. Equally dexterous is Sumanta Roy in his role as Anukulda. He challenges Rishav quite often with his natural acting and undoubtedly proves his potential as an actor of promise. Avipsa Ghosh as Somesh’s daughter shows her growing determination to be a great actor on stage. Sandipan Chatterjee is good in his role as God. Director, Avi Chakraborty, keeps the stagecraft simple where he demarcates the frontal part of the stage to perform the out of the body experience and the rear part as the Nursing home, the reality. The transportation from conscious to the subconscious is subtle and is done aesthetically. Special mention of Saumik Chakraborty is required here for his fascinating set design. Music and background score of Dishari and Light designing by old-timer Sudip Sanyal make the production complete. The playwright’s elucidation of the importance of an employed middle-class life with values and contradictions amidst negativities in the world brings a wave of fresh air for us to inhale deep and take our lives forward.last_img read more
