The Samurai Blue might leave Russia with broken hearts, but during the course of their FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign they have won many a hearts. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGeorgetown UniversityLearn from Anywhere This Summer with Georgetown’s Online Summer CoursesGeorgetown UniversityUndo247 SportsThe Highest-Paid College Football Coaches In 2020, Ranked247 SportsUndoTreehuggerHow To Protect Yourself Against CyberthreatsTreehuggerUndoTHE LAST GESTUREThey were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia on Monday, July 2. They were heart-broken to see two-goal advantage slipping away in the crucial game. They still showed the brave heart to leave that one last heart-winning impression.The players, before departing, cleaned their dressing-room to leave the Rostov changing area in an immaculate condition. It was not just the Japanese team, their fans in the stands too stayed back to clean the Rostov Arena as they tried to overcome the emotions following their team’s exit from the big stage.The Japanese team also left behind a small note in the middle of their changing room – it read “Thank You” in Russian.SELF BELIEF IS STRONGEST STRENGTHThe Japanese were up against the all-conquering strong Belgium line-up in their last encounter. Belgium in winning their all three Group G games had conceded a mere two goals and struck nine. The defence was rock solid and attack extremely penetrating.Japan had a self-belief and discipline. Not overawed by their big opponent, they believed in their karma and maintained their composure. By the 40th minute they were leading 2-0  against a strong opponent. Belgium won eventually, but Japan even in defeat have established a point – no one is invincible, self-belief and discipline are big strengths in adversaries. PLAY IT FAIRJapan’s progress to the round of 16 was a reward for their fair play. They ended up tied with Senegal on four points form three games. The two teams had identical stats in their group stage games – a win, a draw, a loss, and four goals for and against apiece. Japan’s fair play became the clincher. The Blue Samurai became the first team in the FIFA World Cup history to advance past the Group Stage by breaking the tie for having received lesser “cards”.A lesson again from Japan – playing fair costs nothing but has its own rewards.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 City, county and state work together on tax incentive packageThe Orange County Commission voted 6-1 at its Tuesday meeting to recommend that the State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity approve Apopka-based  business Qorvo, a full service designer and producer of radio frequency products for the telecommunications market with revenues of nearly $3 billion and a market value in excess of $7 billion, as a qualified applicant for tax incentives under the Qualified Target Industry Program.The economic development package would provide more than $500,000 in tax reductions to Qorvo.Bryan Nelson was one of the six county commissioners who voted in favor of the tax credit for Qorvo.“How exciting to see the growth potential of Qorvo,” said Nelson. “From it’s humble beginnings as a startup called Sawtek selling military chips to today adding 100 jobs paying an average of $80k for the cell phone market. It’s Truly amazing.”Nelson: “How exciting to see the growth potential.”On December 7th, The Apopka City Council voted 5-0 to approve an economic incentive package with the State of Florida and Orange County to assist Qorvo in the large expansion that will create more 100 new high-paying jobs within the city.Qorvo aims to expand its Apopka facility with a three-story, 33,000-square-foot office building along with 7,000 square feet of lab space and parking. The company will create 100 or more new jobs in an effort to keep up with its expanding global business.The total expansion investment is estimated at about $43 million. The average salary of those new jobs will be about $84,000 a year.“The staff has been working on this for eight months in concert with Orange County and in concert with the state,” said Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer at the December 7th City Council meeting. “We are now at a point where we can move forward and move forward aggressively. I’m thrilled with this project. We have a tremendous opportunity for a local business to create more jobs, create more capitol investment and create more intellectual brain power here in Apopka. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”Kilsheimer: “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”So what is Qorvo and where is it located?Qorvo, Inc. is what you might call a low-profile business. Their offices are on Orange Blossom Trail, south of Apopka,  and the building, the products and many of the people who design and build them have been in the same location for more than three decades.Originally the business was named Sawtek. The facility was constructed in 1982 when Sawtek designed and produced Surface Acoustic Wave devices. These SAW devices, as they are called, are sub-miniature, electronic filters used in virtually every wireless product on the market for many years. These filters allow the desired radio signal to pass while filtering unwanted interference. The new iPhone alone has 80 of these acoustic filters in each handset.In the early years, Sawtek produced filters for both military and commercial applications such as radar and cable television. In the early 90’s, the cellular telephone industry exploded and with it, Sawtek grew rapidly as well. As a result, the company went public in 1996 with a very successful IPO that generated more than $65 million for expansion. The best part of the story is that the employees owned more than 60% of the company through an Employee Stock Ownership Program. By 1998, the value to just several hundred employees was in excess of $800 million, much of which found its way into the economies of Apopka and Orange County.Sawtek was acquired for $1.3 billion in July of 2001 by TriQuint Semiconductor, an Oregon-based manufacturer of semiconductor products for cell phones and other applications. At that time, Sawtek had the highest market value of any company headquartered in Central Florida. Subsequently, in 2015, TriQuint merged with RF Micro Devices based in North Carolina to form Qorvo, a full service designer and producer of radio frequency products for the telecommunications market with revenues of nearly $3 billion and a market value in excess of $7 billion.The Apopka facility is home to more than 1,000 of Qorvo’s 8,000 employees and ships over 1 billion filters annually to electronics giants all over the world. The building that was once Sawtek is one of only two or three facilities in the world that are capable of producing these complex products.The City of Apopka Public Information Office, Orange County Media Center, State of Florida Media Center and Gary Monetti (former President of Sawtek, Inc.) contributed to this report.  Please enter your name herelast_img read more

Wales looking strong after solid win over Scotland

first_imgTuesday Feb 14, 2012 Wales looking strong after solid win over Scotland Scotland picked up two yellow cards as they lost 27-13 to Wales in their Six Nations meeting on Sunday. It was another game of missed chances for the Scots, and the Welsh are now in a strong position as they head into their next game, against England. In two week’s time Wales will head to Twickenham to take on the old enemy in a game that may well set them on the path for the Grand Slam. The’ve had a good run of form and have scored six tries in their two games so far, building up the hype at home.“I’m sure the nation is going to get revved up again and we’ll be the only sane ones left here. It’s hard to escape sometimes when you’re walking around Tesco but you’ve just got to keep your feet on the ground,” prop Adam Jones told Wales Online.“We’ve got something to play for now and going to Twickenham to try and win a Triple Crown is an exciting prospect. Obviously they can still win one as well so it’s going to be an exciting game.”As for Scotland, at 27-6 down they had a try disallowed from the impressive young Stuart Hogg after it was ruled to have been knocked on. A few minutes later they did score, and built some nice phases in the last twenty minutes of the game.Recently retired Dan Parks says that there is plenty to build on, particularly at flyhalf.“Jacko (Ruaridh Jackson) is an excellent open-field runner and he has great skills and his kicking game has come on leaps and bounds. Greig (Laidlaw) brings something slightly different. Judging on his showing against Wales, he can be very crafty. He can score points which is vital.“And Duncan (Weir) is similar to myself. He has a great kicking game and also accumulates points. The future for Scotland 10s is very bright and the future for Scotland is bright,” he said.You can view highlights of the game belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

AIDS Activists, not politicians, led fight against epidemic

first_imgHillary Clinton’s anti-LGBTQ statement on March 11 showed how the ruling class fabricates “history” out of thin air and lies to suit its own purposes. During Nancy Reagan’s funeral, Clinton praised former Republican President Ronald Reagan’s spouse for “starting a national conversation” about HIV/AIDS.Furious pushback from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community on social media, and even from the conservative Human Rights Campaign, rapidly exposed Clinton’s lie and forced her to immediately give a terse apology. More importantly, the outrage underlined the fact that widespread organizing in the streets — and not ruling-class politicians — was the force that opened up action on AIDS.ACT-UP 1980s protest at the U.S. National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.In fact, by 1987, more than 20,000 people had died of AIDS, but President Reagan had not even uttered the name of the disease. Nancy Reagan refused to help her friend, movie star Rock Hudson, who appealed for assistance as he was dying of AIDS-related complications in 1985. (The Daily Beast, March 11)At a press briefing on Oct. 15, 1982, Reagan’s Press Secretary Larry Speakes was asked repeatedly if the president intended to address the epidemic health crisis. Speakes replied with derisive, homophobic laughter at hearing of the deaths from AIDS. The vicious laughter echoes in a video posted at Slate.com on Dec. 1. (tinyurl.com/zhuogdf)The “conversation” about AIDS was begun by dedicated, militant organizations like ACT-UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power). Their iconic pink triangle poster, which read “Silence = Death,” originally bore these words: “Why is Reagan silent about AIDS? What is really going on at the Centers for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Vatican? Gays and lesbians are not expendable. Use your power. Vote. Boycott. Defend yourselves. Turn anger, fear, grief into action.” (actupny.org)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Anti-racist action in a racist epidemic

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this As the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads around the world, in its wake comes another kind of epidemic — an outbreak of anti-Asian racism and racism against im/migrants in general. Ultra-rightists in Europe — Italy, Greece, France — are blaming the spread of the virus on migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East. From England come stories of Asian children violently targeted on school playgrounds. In social media internationally there is a continuing flood of insulting and racist anti-Chinese memes. The U.S. has an ignominious history of anti-Chinese and anti-Asian discrimination. In the 19th century racist slanders that Chinese people carried diseases — from syphilis to the bubonic plague — were constantly used to justify discrimination. Legislators, capitalist bosses, white-only unions and “liberal” white women suffragists used this accusation to pass the infamous 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act banning Chinese workers from coming to the U.S.One hundred years after the act was passed, in 1982 two Chrysler management employees bludgeoned a Chinese restaurant worker, Vincent Chin, to death in Metro Detroit. Their hatred was fueled by reactionary, anti-Japanese “Buy America” propaganda. Now COVID-19 is being used in the U.S. to revive old anti-Asian racist slurs. On public transportation in New York City and Los Angeles, people of Asian descent have been attacked as “diseased.” At a motel in Indiana, a registration clerk says: “Asians not allowed.” Reports come in that Uber and Lyft drivers are refusing to give rides to people with “Asian-sounding” last names. In a since-deleted web post, the health services center of the University of California-Berkeley actually listed xenophobia toward Asians as a “normal reaction” to the spread of COVID-19.But racism is not “normal.” In the U.S. this current epidemic of racism is the result of hundreds of years of calculated effort by bosses and capitalist owners to poison any positive connection between workers of different national backgrounds and to kill any revolutionary action by the country’s international working class. The structure of U.S. capitalism rests on the seizure of Indigenous land and massacre of Native peoples; on the kidnapping, enslavement and unpaid labor of African peoples; and on the exploitation in wage slavery of workers who have emigrated into the country from all around the world, especially from underdeveloped areas assaulted by imperialist plunder and war. Capitalism can only continue if workers turn against each other, distorted by the bosses’ propaganda, instead of uniting to fight against exploitation by the system. The current surge of anti-Asian racism in the U.S. calls for workers of all backgrounds to step up in solidarity against the slurs and violence. This solidarity is an essential step toward fighting the anti-union, anti worker onslaught now being mounted by the current right-wing administration.‘Fight entrenched racism in U.S.’ The epidemic of anti-Asian racism is also a stark reminder of the necessity to fight entrenched racism in the U.S.– the ongoing violence against Indigenous people, those of African descent, Latinx im/migrants, Muslims and people perceived as Muslims. The struggle against racism has to be waged on a daily and widely organized basis — at work and in schools, in the face of police assaults, on the subway, in conversations in social spaces, in community and movement organizations. This battle has to be waged if we are to build a path forward to a more just world and toward socialism. Concrete anti-racist solidarity that can be taken against the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic could include special support to nationally oppressed peoples, like Indigenous and African-American communities, where lack of access to insurance and health care brings greater peril during an epidemic; renewed militant action to free prisoners through bail and to close im/migrant detention camps, where infection risks are high from overcrowding and lack of health care; support to get community health and home health care workers — the majority women of color — proper protective equipment; and close attention to price controls and food distribution plans in nationally oppressed communities if areas are quarantined. China has been an example to the world of how to limit and hopefully defeat COVID-19 by mobilizing a centralized “peoples’ response” to the COVID-19 epidemic — a response only possible because People’s China has been working since 1949 to build a path to socialism. Let us in the workers’ and progressive movement in the U.S. strengthen our antiracist actions in response to the epidemic, so we can build solidarity that is the road to a socialist future here.last_img read more

She serves a managing editor for TCU360.com. One of her proudest accomplishments is her ability to drink a half liter bottle of water in seven seconds. Paris Joneshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/paris-jones/ printOne thing that many Fort Worth residents agree on is that you can never go wrong with queso.No matter what sort of day you’ve had, crispy tortilla chips dipped into a bowl of hot, melty cheese are bound to make it better.Here are some of the best places to get queso near TCU. We ranked based on price, chip and cheese quality, proximity to campus and extra ingredients. Each score is represented as X/5 blocks of cheese.8. Yucatan Taco StandPrice: 3/5 ($5)Cheese quality: 2/5Chip factor: 1/5Extras: 0/5Proximity to campus: 3/5Overall score: 1.8/5Photo by Andrew Van HeusdenSomeone had to be last, and Yucatan Taco Stand secured that position almost immediately.The menu features $5 queso served with chips and hot sauce, which, seems like a bargain. I say “seems” because with the first bite of queso, it becomes apparent you get what you pay for at Yucatan.The chips are eerily similar to Julio’s bagged chips right down to the inconsistent seasoning. As for the queso itself, it was bland and could be replicated at home with a few melted string cheeses.In short, it’s not worth it. 7. Rodeo Goat Price: 2/5 ($6.50)Cheese quality: 2/5Chip factor: 1/5Proximity to campus: 2/5Extras: 3/5Average score: 2/5Photo by Andrew Van HeusdenRodeo Goat is pretty hit-and-miss as far as queso goes. Ordering it is a gamble, especially considering the $6.50 price tag. It’s filled with extras like ground beef, pico and guacamole. However, if you go on a bad day, even the extras can’t hide the Velveeta-like consistency.Rodeo Goat is known for its burgers, and queso won’t likely be taking its place anytime soon.6. Gloria’s Photo by Paris JonesPrice: 4/5 ($4)Cheese quality: 3/5Chip factor: 2/5Proximity to campus: 2/5Extras: 0/5Average score: 2.2/5Nothing describes my experience with Gloria’s queso quite like the phrase: “I’m not angry—just disappointed.”The atmosphere at the restaurant is great, but the queso— not so much. It’s the kind of queso one would expect to get from a food truck, not Gloria’s. The cheese is a decent quality, but nowhere near good enough to justify a stand-alone queso. The chips are, in a way, notable just because of their complete lack of taste.In the end, the only thing the queso really has going for it is the fact it is $4.5. Fuzzy’sPhoto by Paris JonesPrice: 5/5 ($3.29)Cheese quality: 1.5/5Chip factor: 1/5Proximity to campus: 5/5Extras: 2/5Average score: 2.9/5 Fuzzy’s queso might be served a little cold with semi-stale chips, but it’s the answer to anyone looking for cheap queso within walking distance. The one thing it has going for it is the pico, which is either fresh or at least tastes fresh in comparison to the cheese.For a .4 mile walk and $3.29, it isn’t the best queso but it’s worth it.4. BrewedPrice: 1/5 ($9.75)Cheese quality: 5/5Chip factor: 4/5Proximity to campus: 2/5Extras: 3/5Average score: 3/5Photo by Andrew Van HeusdenIf you’re willing to pay $10 for queso then I have just the thing for you, Brewed goat cheese queso. The queso is made with fresh goat cheese and homemade chilli and salsa.Ultimately, if you’re going to be on Magnolia and have some money to burn, Brewed queso is a bit of an investment, but it’s worth it.3. Chuy’sPhoto by Paris JonesPrice: 2/5 ($6.79)Cheese quality: 5/5Chip factor: 4/5Proximity to campus: 2/5Extras: 3/5Average score: 3.2/5Chuy’s was one of the highlights of this investigation.It isn’t anything fancy— just melted cheese mixed with ranchero sauce and green chili sauce, but it’s definitely one of the top contenders for best queso.The chips are crisp and thin, but thick enough not to break. The sauces are blended perfectly and the cheese is  just the right consistency. Overall, it’s just simple queso done right. Also, it’s free during happy hour.2. Velvet TacoPhoto by Andrew Van HeusdenPrice: 4/5 ($4.75)Cheese quality: 5/5Chip factor: 5/5Proximity to campus: 2/5Extras: 3/5Average score: 3.8/5Of all the contenders, Velvet Taco’s queso might have the best quality cheese. The only extras it comes with are red onion and a basil leaf, but both serve to give the cheese more distinction. If you run out of queso don’t worry because the blue corn chips are good enough eat on their own.1. Torchy’sPhoto by Paris JonesPrice: 3/5 ($5.50)Cheese quality: 5/5Chip factor: 3/5Proximity to campus: 4/5Extras: 5/5Average score: 4/5Torchy’s queso is what other quesos aspire to be. It’s made with quality cheese and is loaded with extras like guacamole, basil and cotija cheese. It also comes with Torchy’s signature diablo sauce which gives it an extra kick. Not to mention, it isn’t too far away from campus nor is it too expensive.Pro-tip: Order a “half order” to get the same amount of chips and queso for half the price. I don’t know why it works that way, but it does. For that, I am thankful.Map of Quesos Near TCU Paris Joneshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/paris-jones/ Sage Quoteslast_img read more

Early release for leading journalist follows international campaigns

first_img News June 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on China RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the release of leading investigative journalist Jiang Weiping, who was freed yesterday morning after being granted a further 12 months’ remission in the six-year prison sentence he began serving in 2001, but it deplored the fact that he will continue to be deprived of his civil and political rights until January 2009.The organisation paid homage to all the many news media and diplomats, especially in the United States, who had campaigned for his release, including the former US ambassador to China, Clark Randt, who often mentioned Jiang in speeches in 2002 and 2003.”Jiang’s release shows the effectiveness of public statements by western governments in support of journalists imprisoned in China,” Reporters Without Borders said.John Kamm of the Duihua foundation, which campaigns for the release of political prisoners, said: “We do not clearly know the reasons for this early release, but we think it has something to do with President Hu Jintao’s coming visit to the United States.”On leaving Nanguanling prison in Dalian (the capital of the northeastern province of Liaoning), Jiang went directly to his sister-in-law’s home. His wife reached him there by telephone from Canada, where she has lived in exile with her daughter since November 2004. Kamm said: “Jiang will request a passport as soon as possible in order to join them. Under Chinese law, the suspension of his civil and political rights does not prevent him from doing this.” Kamm added that Jiang’s wife is still very worried about him.Now aged 49, Jiang was arrested on 4 December 2000 in Dalian and was given the eight-year sentence for “divulging state secrets” and “trying to overthrow the government.” His sentence was previously reduced by two years on appeal in December 2002.He was arrested after writing a series of reports for a Hong Kong-based daily newspaper on alleged corruption among senior officials in northeastern China, including then provincial governor Bo Xilai, who subsequently became a member of the Communist Party Central Committee and trade minister. Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Leading investigative journalist Jiang Weiping has been freed after receiving a further 12 months’ remission in his eight-year prison sentence for “divulging state secrets.” He is in poor health after five years in prison and hopes to join his wife and daughter, who are now living in exile in Canada. Reporters Without Borders pays tribute to the campaigns by news media and diplomats which led to his early release.

She will assume the duties of headmaster June 1, 2014.Messenger photo | Jaine TreadwellThe board of directors of Pike Liberal Arts School announced Tuesday that Becky Baggett will be the school’s new headmaster by unanimous approval of the 16-member board.Baggett has served as assistant headmaster to Ceil Sikes at Pike Liberal Arts School for the past two years.Maria Strother, board chair, said the board of directors is extremely pleased to have someone with Baggett’s experience and working knowledge of the school to continue leading PLAS forward.“Mrs. Baggett is a proven educator and administrator,” Strother said. “She has served 26 years as a teacher and eight years as a headmaster before coming to Pike Liberal Arts two years ago to serve as the assistant headmaster.”Strother said Baggett will begin her duties on June 1, 2014.“Until then, Mrs. Sikes remains the headmaster and she and Mrs. Baggett will be working together to make the transition as easy as possible for everyone,” Strother said. “We look forward to the continued success of Pike Liberal Arts School as Mrs. Baggett begins her term as headmaster.”Baggett said she is humbled and honored by the confidence the board of directors has placed in her.“I was told that I had the support of the teachers and parents and that some of the students told the board they would like to have me as their headmaster,” Baggett said. “That means so much to me.“I’m just a Pike County country girl, but I love Troy and Pike County and I love Pike Liberal Arts School. It is an honor for me to be headmaster here.”Although Baggett said she never anticipated being headmaster at PLAS, she welcomes the opportunity.“The family atmosphere at Pike Liberal Arts makes us rather unique,” she said. “And, we are able to start each school day with scripture and prayer and that plays a huge role in the building of character in kids.”Having been assistant headmaster at PLAS for two years, Baggett is familiar with the school’s curriculum, programs and activities and with the students. She has been a part of developing and communicating the school’s vision for the future. “At PLAS, we are always expanding and improving the curriculum to prepare our students for the career opportunities that will be available to them,” Baggett said. “E-books are the books of the future so we will introduce them at PLAS.“I would like for character education to be a part of every school week. Young people need all of the positive reinforcement we can provide for them. Christian influences can make a difference in the lives of children. I want to be a Christian influence in the lives of the students at PLAS.”Baggett said she and Sikes are working together to make the transition.“Mrs. Sikes hired me and brought me here and the transition will be an easy one,” she said. “I am so appreciative for this opportunity and, as long as we follow the Lord’s plan and do His will, PLAS is going to be all right.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Book Nook to reopen Latest Storieslast_img read more
