O’Neill will advise clients on investment strategies but will also continue to comment on key economic issues. His appointment is subject to regulatory approval from the Financial Services Authority (FSA), which last week fined Goldman Sachs – which currently has $800bn (£520bn) assets under management – £17.5m for failing to warn that one of its staff was implicated in fraud charges in the US. It is understood that the firm will not name a new chief economist. Instead O’Neill will retain some of his previous responsibilities, while the rest will be shared out among the remaining economists at the bank.Earlier this year O’Neill was identified as a member of a group of wealthy investors, known as the Red Knights, who hoped to lead a buyout of Manchester United. He was also responsible for the creation of the acronym BRICs for the emerging market economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China. “Jim brings broad experience across asset classes, a track record of identifying important investment trends and strong relationships with clients around the world,” said Ed Forst and Tim O’Neill, the global co-heads of the Investment management division of Goldman Sachs, to whom O’Neill will report. “His powerful voice in the global investment community will help us continue to demonstrate the value we add for our clients.” last_img read more

Nutrition: How to eat in the off-season

first_imgPoached egg, salmon & rosti (serves three) What you’ll need: 2 Maris Piper potatoes, 1 raw beetroot peeled and grated, 1⁄2 red onion peeled and finely chopped, 1⁄2 clove garlic peeled and finely crushed, 50ml of rapeseed oil, 3 eggs, 75g smoked salmon, An optional dollop of horseradish cream, Salad leaves of your choice.Step-by-step: 1 Boil the potatoes (unpeeled), drain and leave to cool for ten mins. Peel and grate into a large bowl.2 Add the beetroot, onion and garlic, then season. Divide mixture into three rostis and place on a baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes.3 Heat oil in a frying pan and cook the rostis for 4-5 mins each side. Remove, keep warm in oven at low temperature.4 Poach the eggs in simmering water. As you’re no longer in a hurry, on days when training doesn’t eat into your schedule you don’t have to chuck everything in a blender and whizz up a five-minute miracle before rushing off for a full day.“This time of year is all about recovery and rest,” says James Morehen, a rugby nutritionist from Liverpool John Moores University. “This is the time when we tell athletes about the three Ts of nutrition – timing, type and total.“You don’t need to be carb loading as you’re not training as much, so what type of macronutrients are you consuming? If you’ve not done any heavy sessions that day and have nothing the next, do you need a heavy-carb spaghetti Bolognese at 9pm? I doubt it.”Enjoy cooking in the off-seasonSo as well as having time to actually enjoy cooking, it’s about understanding what your body needs. Morehen says that early conditioning sessions should be backed up with breakfasts that are protein-heavy but low on carbs.He implores athletes to imagine a plate of distinct sections, with a majority (palm size) made up of lean proteins, a fist size of fibre-rich carbs like sweet potato or brown rice, and the rest made up of colourful vegetables.As ever, Morehen encourages you to “eat a rainbow” of colours, be it with your biggest meals or midday snacks of Greek yoghurt, fruit and nuts.Below is a healthy recipe that anyone should be able to master…DO – Consider the balance of nutrients you consume on your days off, and enjoy spending time in the kitchen.DON’T – Pile up the carbohydrates like you would during a busy training block. 5 To serve, place a rosti on plate and top with the salmon and horseradish cream (if wanted). Put a poached egg on top, add salad leaves and enjoy!For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here.

The wild life of the Bouclier de Brennus Top 14 trophy

first_imgStaying with Toulon, in 2014 team manager Tom Whitford posted this pic of the trophy snuggling in for a night’s sleep alongside his wife.There is also a well-known image from the L’Equipe newspaper, of Perpignan centre David Marty sleeping with the trophy as well, back in 2009. Held aloft: French singer Oli rides the Bouclier de Brennus after Toulouse win in 2019 (Getty Images) There are some legendary tales of neglect and abuse where the old plank is concerned. Most recently, it made headlines when young fly-half Romain Ntamack took it down to the beach and used it as a makeshift surfboard. In Castres, there are more than a few noteworthy moments. They have used the award in service to diners in more ways than one in the past – from dishing up steak-frites on it, to using it to clear plates. It was not the first time it had been used this way, though. In fact Ntamack’s father, former France international Émile, has spoken of how Toulouse had used it this way in the past. There is also tale of Perpignan taking the trophy to iconic surfer Kelly Slater’s beach in 2009. Then there is the below image of scrum-half Ludovic Radosavljevic taking it into the jacuzzi in 2017, after a Clermont triumph. The historic trophy has been through some dicey moments in its long historycenter_img According to Franceinfo, Castres also once misplaced the trophy for two days. In 2018, Laurent Travers (coach at the time, though now with Racing 92) told them of their experience with the trophy: “There was never any doubt, we knew that it could not be stolen: it is quite heavy, it is not something that you can put in your pocket. On the other hand, someone could have it at home … “However, the outlet later explained they believe the trophy was discovered in the club’s swimming pool, with Ibrahim Diarra quoted as saying it “went under the showers, in the swimming pool… ” but that all was fine in the end. Related: The entertaining aftermath of Bayonne’s promotion to the Top 14It has ended up in the water before.Overjoyed: A throwback to Béziers with the trophy in 1971 (Getty Images)This time we look to Toulon, where we have seen yacht parties with the trophy in recent years.“At the end of the evening, in the euphoria and general jubilation, the shield ended in the harbour of Toulon,” Aubin Hueber, former Toulon nine told L’Obs in 2016, of club festivities back in 1992. “All the players, as one man, dove in so that the Brennus did not sink.”  The wild life of the Bouclier de Brennus Top 14 trophyAt the start of the new season, if you were to glance at the Top 14 trophy – the famous Bouclier de Brennus, the ‘piece of wood’, first competed for in 1892 – you would see the space set out for the 2020 title winner is filled with the words “non disputé” (not disputed). Those words have been used before, during the two world wars.But after a period of no rugby, in keeping with tradition, the previous champions Toulouse had sent the trophy to master cabinet maker Pierre Armengaud, from Belpech in Aude, to be restored. Asked about the state of the trophy, his response to RTL roughly translates as: “It was massacred, with damaged edges and blows everywhere. I suspect them (Toulouse) of belly-sliding on the medal.”Related: Top 14 2020-21 Season PreviewBig smooch: Stade Français after winning in 2000 (Getty Images)The quip about a ride an the old trophy may at first sound odd. But read back at the treatment of the Bouclier de Brennus through the years and it becomes apparent that anything goes after the Top 14 final concludes. And, as you can see from the antics of Stade Français back in 2015, Armengaud is right to consider slip-n-slide an option… And finally, what about this one? In 2014 it was discovered that Toulouse had cheakily slapped a club sticker on the back of the plaque of winners, with a scribble above the logo saying “C’est le nôtre” – “It’s ours.”After a cancelled season, that is still true heading into 2020-21 action.Can’t get to the shops?

How to Clean Your Memory Foam Mattress

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. 1 COMMENT November 26, 2020 at 5:56 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Linda WilliamsYour memory foam mattress is one of the most significant investments in your home. However, if you enjoy sleeping on this revolutionary mattress, you should know how to appropriately care for it. To practice good hygiene, you’ll need to sanitize your memory-foam mattress once a year to remove dust mites, allergens, grime, and odors. Annual cleaning will not only keep your memory foam mattress free from dirt and disease but will also extend its lifespan.Here are some helpful tips to help you clean your mattress the most effectively. Along with reviewing these tips, ensure you follow the manufacturer’s care instructions to ensure you’re disinfecting your memory foam without compromising its condition.Vacuum your memory foam mattressThe first and most essential step in cleaning your mattress is to vacuum it. If you overlook this step, unwanted substances like debris, stray hair, and lint can damage the foam. Vacuuming every square inch of your memory-foam bed’s surface can help you eradicate these particles that can cause acne or other skin irritations. For optimal results and convenience, you should use a high-power, handheld vacuum cleaner to dust bust every nook and cranny of your memory foam mattress. A soft brush or a standard vac will also do the trick if you don’t have a handheld vacuum cleaner on-hand.If you own a mattress from Essentia, make sure you concentrate on the crevices across the peaks to eliminate all the debris. Once your bed is free from stains and odors, spray it with gentle laundry detergent.Remove stains with a memory-foam cleaning solutionIf you stain your memory foam mattress, you can spot-clean as necessary using a mild fabric solution. Mix one cup of water with a half cup of fabric cleaner, and use a spray bottle for application. Before spraying, shake the mixture properly and apply the necessary amount of solution to remove the stains.If you spray an excessive amount of solution, it can soak the mattress. Since the memory foam mattress is made of sponge, it can take a long time to dry. Much like you should avoid drenching its porous surface, you should also avoid using bleach.The next step is to gently scrub the stain in a circular motion using a rag. While it’s essential to remove these unsightly stains, don’t rub the mattress vigorously, as that can damage the foam or push the solution deeper than necessary.Once you remove the stain, use a wet rag to wipe any excess solution. Then, leave your mattress to dry before putting the sheets back. If you spill any dark-colored drinks or foods, you’ll need to attend to the stain immediately. Otherwise, it won’t be easy to remove them once they dry.Remove odors using white vinegar and baking sodaCommon stains such as urine and vomit can linger inside a memory foam mattress longer than you might expect. If left unattended for too long, it could cause irreversible damage. Use disposable paper towels to absorb the substances while still wet. Afterward, vacuum the affected area and cover it with white vinegar. You can also use paper towels to remove the solution once it’s had time to soak.Once you absorb all the vinegar, cover the affected area with baking soda and leave it to sit overnight for about 8 to 10 hours. Lastly, vacuum the baking soda away and leave the spot to dry. Besides baking soda, you can use other odor removing alternatives such as citrus-based cleaners and products specifically made to eliminate odors. However, if you follow the above procedure, but your foam mattress still smells funny, put in the sun to deodorize it.Dry the mattressDrying your memory foam mattress can be a time-consuming process. Since it’s made of sponge, this type of bed has a propensity for absorbing water or other liquids. So, you’ll want to dry it quickly and correctly to avoid a repulsive, moldy scent.You can use a fan or blow-dry a low heat mode to dry the mattress. Keeping your blow dryer on the lowest setting is vital, as high heat levels can damage the foam. When drying, hold the blow dry at least four inches away from the mattress’s surface and move it in a circular motion until it is dry. If you choose to use a fan for a hands-off approach, ensure it’s set at its highest heat levels and given time to dry for a few hours. After exposing it to fan power, let your memory foam mattress sit for at least a day to dry.ConclusionMemory foam mattresses are highly absorbent, making it difficult to get rid of large, dark, smelly, and stubborn stains. If the tips mentioned above don’t improve your memory foam mattress’s condition, you should consider replacing it. You can also prevent this water damage or permanent stain damage by covering these mattresses used by children with a waterproof mattress protector.

How do those who don’t have dollars live in Venezuela?

first_imgCaracasPublished Feb. 21 in Sputniknews.com. Translation by Michael Otto.There is more and more talk about how dollars circulate in certain parts of Caracas. But what happens to those who don’t have access to the U.S. currency or have it only sporadically? How do they come to grips with that daily reality?It’s night in Caracas and the soccer tournament continues, with team after team taking the field, which is located on the heights of the neighborhood, among modest houses and buildings, in a fog hanging over the El Ávila hilltop. Each team registration costs 10 U.S. dollars in cash; the prize for the winner will also be in dollars: 60 percent of what is collected.Not surprisingly, prices in an appliance store are directly displayed in dollars, as are rentals, vehicles and likewise at supermarkets or hot dog stands where you can pay in dollars and almost always get change.“Boy, they’re all in a fever about the dollar,” a motorcycle parts saleswoman tells Sputnik — in Venezuelan Spanish — on Avenida Baralt in the popular West Side of Caracas.The trend expanded during 2019. Once used primarily by the upper-middle class — entry to a discotheque in wealthy Caracas areas was paid for in dollars — in the last few months there has been a spreading presence and necessity to use U.S. currency.The [Venezuelan] central exchange was not [intended] to hold the dollar as a currency of reference and savings — something that is common in Latin American countries like Argentina. The transformation occurred as dollars began to circulate for everyday expenses: Bills began to multiply on the streets, particularly $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills.Society, the everyday economy, was apparently split by a dividing line: whether you had access to dollars and how much. For those who could have income in dollars, earnings and bank accounts were safe from economic hardship. What would happen, on the other hand, to those who were left out of that process or were on the fringes?Economy and resilience in Venezuela: What about those excluded?In the last five years, the Venezuelan economy has gone through situations as complex as the shortage of basic necessities, inflation and hyperinflation, including the absence and resale of cash. The so-called dollarization is one of the new phenomena within the broad panorama of different hardships.Given these scenarios, numerous forms of resistance and restructuring have emerged. Mariana García and Hernán Vargas, Venezuelan researchers, have studied how these mutations have occurred during the last three years, particularly in the popular sectors, but also in the middle classes.Theirs is a field of research into what they call “social reproduction and popular economies,” in a context where, as Vargas says, “In three years things have changed tremendously.” The Venezuelan dynamic, economic as well as political — two inseparable dimensions − is dizzying.Despite the changes, some key elements of the mutation, both in urban and rural areas, have been maintained. Garcia and Vargas point to four central issues “to reconcile a response to the question of how people survive.” Labor migrationFirst of all, “The reconfiguration of labor that forces you [the working class] to shift from formal to informal work, for your own survival, to do [precarious] work inside or outside the country, because the search is for the greatest amount of foreign currency.”That’s how the informal work initiatives such as selling and reselling flourished or how those already characteristic images of hairdressers appeared on the streets.That has been one of the mechanisms in the face of price increases, currency depreciation and the resulting dilution of wages. Wages stopped rising, many workers left their salaried jobs, and as Vargas says, a characteristic of the previous Chavismo [the revolutionary process begun by the late President Hugo Chávez] years unravelled [which was a time] when “Everyone wanted to work permanently, under contract, in some public institution or perhaps in a private one.” SubsidiesSecond, Garcia says that one of the “determining factors as a matter of daily routine are the policies of direct monetary transfer or of subsidies for consumption provided by the Committees of Local Supply and Production (CLAP) or the bonds.”This “has a tremendous impact on the survival of people who lives depend on their work,” says Vargas. To these policies should be added the invisible subsidy “that you see when you compare it with the services in other countries,” such as water, electricity, gasoline and some transportation. Changes in consumptionThird, the researchers point to the scale of the shift in consumption, where consumption plunged in comparison to the way of life that had been in place in the previous years of Chavismo.“The way of life in those years was like at the end of the year you went out to drink beer with your friends, those of us who worked for a salary could have lunch in the street every day, all of that went down the drain, and that’s important in terms of how life is being restructured in Venezuela,” says Vargas.That created a mirror people hold up to compare their current mode of consumption with the previous one — something that has affected migration because “One of the things you see is that you hit that mirror and you leave the country seeking a lifestyle that you’re not going to find here.” Collective resistancesFourth, [Vargas notes], “The reconfigurations have led to a growing number of collective forms, which can be organized, including communal markets, peasant farmers, systems of exchange between organized communities, cooperativism.”These collective forms, described by Vargas, are linked with what he calls the “growth of the small,” such as family farming, mutual support between families, direct exchange between neighbors and between Whatsapp groups. The “small,” multiplied on a national scale, has a massive impact.Access to dollarsThe four elements described above have been maintained throughout the last few years and during the recent development of what is commonly called dollarization, in which García says that “A vast majority of the population, both urban and rural, has little or sporadic access to dollars.”The strategies to get income in dollars depend on possibilities, skills and historical reflexes. Thus, for example, for the middle classes, accustomed to established professions, such as teachers, “They are forced to emigrate because they do not know how to do anything other than work for a salary doing what they know how to do.”That out-migration, which is pervasive in society, generates money transfers or remittances and redefines spaces. In some middle-class areas [according to the researchers], “You see more and more really old people walking around, figuring out how to solve problems, elderly citizens who sometimes stay with the little kids.” In some of those places, many of the youth have had to emigrate to find jobs and send money home to their families.That series of dynamics has redrawn the map of the economy of daily life, of streets, shops and consumption, creating splits around access to dollars and the [obtainable] quantity of dollars. [obtainable]. It is a visible dynamic that has widened inequalities, generating stability for a small fraction of society who have managed to guarantee sufficient income in dollars for themselves.“You have sectors that from upwards of $1,000 [a month] begin to operate differently. [They] even begin to have money to be able to buy things, another car, a business. They import and export because they come and go. They come here to have cosmetic surgery, dental work, things that elsewhere are more expensive,” says Vargas.Economic ‘self-regulation’The uneven expansion of dollars in the economy is growing month by month. The government has claimed that this is a “self-regulation of a resilient economy,” which seems to imply that this is a situation that was allowed to happen and encouraged in the context of siege.This is not a normal scenario, but rather [one imposed] on an economy facing an economic and financial blockade led by the United States. For example, the U.S. has sanctioned the national aviation company, Conviasa, since the beginning of 2020, and the Russian oil company, Rosneft Trading, for trading with the sanctioned Venezuelan oil company, PDVSA.The trend indicates that the dollarization process will continue and, with it, economic, social and political transformations. This is apparently the demand of big capital, national businessmen, big banks and —  coping with all this in a scenario of blockade — the government will continue to open the doors to “self-regulation,” maintaining the social policies that have been key to confronting the [murderous sanctions] during the last few years.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

City Council renews tax lien sale for one year

first_imgShare via Shortlink Full Name* The new version of the measure exempts more property owners and mandates the creation of a 12-person task force to study the feasibility of transferring overdue taxes to community land trusts, land banks and mutual housing associations.The task force must present its findings and recommendations by Nov. 1. The bill also increases the minimum amount of debt that makes properties eligible for the lien sale. For example, the threshold for one- to three-family homes was increased to $5,000 from $1,000.“These are major steps that will protect vulnerable low-income households in the 2021 lien sale and pave the way for a substantial rethinking and replacement of the lien sale in the future,” Adams said during a meeting held by the Council’s Finance Committee earlier on Thursday.Last year elected officials repeatedly postponed the lien sale, which was originally slated to take place in May. In December, Gov. Andrew Cuomo halted all lien sales through Jan. 29, though the law governing the city’s sale expired at the end of 2020. Around that time, Cuomo signed a bill that, in addition to expanding residential eviction protections, barred lien sales through May 1 for owners experiencing financial hardship.Those who voted against the bill during the full Council meeting commended Adams, but said they believed the lien sale should be ended. Brooklyn Council member Kalman Yeger urged his colleagues not to renew the sale, saying that he couldn’t bear the idea of being responsible for its return.“End this misery that is being inflicted on our communities,” he said. “This is not the time for it.”Contact Kathryn Brenzel Email Address* Message*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Queens Council member Adrienne Adams and Mayor Bill de Blasio (NYC Council, Getty, iStock/Illustration by Alexis Manrodt for The Real Deal)UPDATED Jan. 28, 2021, 4:05 p.m.: The City Council on Thursday renewed the city’s tax lien sale for one year, while exempting some property owners affected by the pandemic.In a 39-8 vote, the City Council approved a bill that will renew the sale of liens on delinquent property taxes, water and sewer bills for one year, rather than the usual four, after failing to agree on a comprehensive reform.The bill exempts those who own 10 or fewer units, one of which is the owner’s primary residence, and who can demonstrate financial hardship from the pandemic.The measure differs substantially from a bill introduced by Queens Council member Adrienne Adams in December which renewed the lien sale for four years and based exemptions from the sale on the assessed value of properties.The December version permitted owners of properties with an assessed value of less than $250,000, who experienced financial hardship related to the pandemic and who could show annual income of less than $150,000 to avoid the lien sale.That bill, introduced at the prompting of the de Blasio administration, drew criticism from housing advocates and others, who argued that the sale has a long history of disproportionately affecting homeowners of color. Lien sales can lead to foreclosure.Read moreLast-minute reprieve stops city’s tax lien saleMayor delays tax lien saleFighting property taxes in a pandemic: “A recipe for disaster” Tagscity counciltax lien salelast_img read more

Mesozooplankton community structure in the Scotia Sea during the CCAMLR 2000 Survey: January-February 2000

first_imgAn analysis of mesozooplankton community structure in the Scotia Sea was carried out, based on 123 RMT1 double oblique hauls (0-200m) taken during the CCAMLR 2000 Survey. Standardized sample data (log abundance per 1000 m(3)) were grouped into taxonomic categories and subjected to cluster analysis and multi-dimensional scaling. Two ordinations were performed, the first based on a reduced taxonomic dataset (31 categories out of a full 120) obtained by pooling ontogenetic stages within species and by including only those taxa that contributed at least 4% to total abundance at any one station. This disclosed two major station groups, which separated north and south, forming ‘warm’ and ‘cold’ water communities respectively, whereas four minor groups were mainly associated with stations around the Antarctic Peninsula and within the Weddell Scotia Confluence. Mean zooplankton abundance (238 000 individuals per 1000 m(3)) within the northerly group G1 was up to 12 times higher than in other groups. The second ordination using all taxonomic categories disclosed an additional intermediate group (G1a), which was geographically consistent with the southern part of the northern group 1 from the previous ordination. However, because of taxonomic similarities between all the major station groups it was concluded that they represented a single community, which differed only in its phenological development and the mass occurrence of patchily distributed organisms such as krill larvae. Testing the relationships of station groups with the position of water masses and frontal boundaries indicated that the Weddell Front was broadly coincident with the boundary of the northern and southern communities over much of its length. However, the presence of stations belonging to group G2, to the north of the Weddell Front, to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula, and around the South Sandwich Islands, was consistent with the distribution of ice-influenced surface water. Low zooplankton abundance and species developmental composition suggested that this ‘community’ was largely in an over-wintered state. Copepods and euphausiids dominated the mesozooplankton throughout the study area with small copepods (Oithona spp., Ctenocalanus spp. and Metridia spp.) particularly abundant.last_img read more

Secret police database harvested Prevent data from education sector

first_imgLiberty policy and campaigns manager Gracie Bradley said: “This secret database isn’t about keeping us safe. It’s about keeping tabs on and controlling people – particularly minority communities and political activists. The PCM database is managed centrally by the national counter-terrorism policing headquarters. A Freedom of Information request by Liberty showed that the database is accessible to all police forces across the UK, as well as the Home Office. Police in the UK have a secret database containing the details of thousands of individuals referred to counter-extremism programme Prevent, with almost a third of referrals coming from the education sector, the Guardian has revealed. Of the 7,318 people were referred to the Prevent programme in 2017-8, 2,426 were referred from the education sector. Information on the National Police Prevent Case Management (PCM) database is derived from referrals made by public servants, such as teachers and doctors, who are compelled under a statutory duty to report signs of extremism. “Good records ensure we are accountable, allow us to understand when vulnerabilities are increasing, and ensure we act consistently and proportionately, only taking action int hose cases where our support is necessary. Police chiefs said recording referrals ensures accountability andallows the forces to understand when vulnerabilities are increasing. “It is utterly chilling that potentially thousands of people, includingchildren, are on a secret government database because of what they’re perceivedto think or believe.” Prevent was created as one of four strands of the government’scounter-terrorism strategy in 2003. A National Police Chief’s Council spokesman said: “The public would expect the police to maintain professional records of those individuals referred for support as potential victims of radicalisation. This is no different to the way we record other forms of supportive safeguarding activity such as child sexual exploitation, domestic abuse or human trafficking. “If we did not maintain proper, legally compliant records, the public would rightly have far less confidence in the police.” Any rank of police officer or staff can access the database, but users are vetted and given training before access. The precise number of individuals on the database is unknown, but officialstatistics show that 21,042 individuals had been referred from 2015 to March2018 alone. Documents obtained by human rights group Liberty revealed the existence of the database, which contains personal details and reasons for referral for every one of the thousands of people referred to the programme. The person added is not notified. The public aim of Prevent is to divert people from terrorism before offences are committed, but it has been criticised for being counterproductive and disproportionately targeting Muslims. The programme is currently undergoing a review in light of these accusations. last_img read more
