RMS states most of the losses will be from damages in the Bahamas. Dorian demolished the Bahamas earlier this month, as the storm stalled over the island. The Washington Post reports that authorities said three out of every four homes on Grand Bahama were underwater, and recovery “will cost billions of dollars.” The Post states that Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Tuesday that the official death count has risen to seven, but expects that to increase as more of the damaged areas can be reached. “Parts of Abaco are decimated. There is severe flooding,” Minnis said. “There is severe damage to homes, businesses, other buildings and infrastructure.”Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest said the island’s infrastructure is “wrecked.” By the time the storm hit mainland U.S. it had downgraded to a Category 1. Dorian hit the outer banks of the Carolinas before moving north and hitting Nova Scotia, Canada. The storm still had sustained winds of 100 mph when it struck the coast of Canada.  Dorian Could Bring Losses of More Than $1B Subscribelast_img read more

Historic Life Saving Station to Open for First Night

first_imgAdmission buttons are on sale forOcean City’s New Year’s Eve celebration First Night attendees will get the first opportunity to visit the newly restored U.S. Life Saving Station 30 at the intersection of Fourth Street and Atlantic Avenue. The station operated in Ocean City from 1885 to 1915 as part of the U.S. Life Saving Service, a precursor to the modern Coast Guard. A years-long effort to acquire and restore the historic building is nearly complete, and anybody with a First Night admission button will be invited to stop by and tour the station between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Dec. 31. Life saving stations up and down the U.S. coast were positioned not only to rescue ships and sailors in distress but to serve as places of shelter and medical clinics on shorelines that were often sparsely inhabited and remote. They were staffed with men whose motto was, “You have to go out, but you don’t have to come back.” The Ocean City station will become a living history museum that will give visitors a glimpse of what life was like there in 1905. For First Night on Sunday, Dec. 31, guides will be on hand to answer questions about the station, and artifacts will show how it operated. The station will be decorated with a traditional Christmas tree. The new attraction is just part of the popular non-alcoholic New Year’s Eve celebration that features more than 75 entertainment programs at 19 different locations in Ocean City. A fireworks display rings in the New Year at midnight. A complete schedule of events is available at firstnightocnj.com. Admission buttons ($20) are good for all events. They are available online at firstnightocnj.com, by phone at 1-800-BEACH-NJ, or in person at the Welcome Center on the Route 52 causeway (9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily), at Stainton’s Square (810 Asbury Avenue) and at City Hall (9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily).last_img read more

Alexander: From Clippers beat to Curt Gowdy Award – it’s Marc Stein’s story, too

first_imgMaybe it was the consequence of covering all of those Clippers teams during the bad years, the years of losses, holdouts, coaching changes and the recently fired having to sue Donald Sterling to get their guaranteed contracts paid off. Maybe, if you covered enough of those lean years, you picked up the reporting chops to earn Hall of Fame recognition.Marc Stein landed on the Clippers beat for the L.A. Daily News in February of 1994, just 10 days before the team traded Danny Manning – the No. 1 overall pick just five seasons before – to the Atlanta Hawks for Dominique Wilkins, then on the downside of his own magnificent career.“I just thought I was the luckiest person in the world,” he said. “They weren’t anywhere near a marquee attraction, but I got thrown into it. … Bob Weiss was the coach, and they were supposed to be a playoff team because they’d made the playoffs the previous two years (under Larry Brown). But they just imploded. They traded Manning, finished 27-55, traded Mark Jackson. It was a really chaotic season.“But for me, as a child of the ’80s, when the NBA was not on every channel, obviously I’d see a lot of the Lakers but I also saw a lot of the Hawks because they were on TBS. So for me to be covering Dominique at age 24, and to go to the (Atlanta) Omni and see Dominique lead the Clippers to a win, I couldn’t believe it. I was still star-struck.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Clippers rookies key overtime victory over Oklahoma City Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Stein’s first NBA story was on Divac when he covered the Summer Pro League for the Orange County Register in the summer of 1989. And he covered the Lakers during West’s years as general manager – and drew West’s ire for something he didn’t do in 1996, the summer the Lakers got Shaquille O’Neal.“I wrote a free agent preview for the Daily News,” he recalled. “It turned out that Long Beach (the Press-Telegram) used mostly my story but weaved some stuff from a New York Daily News story into my piece that suggested the Lakers had already done a deal with Shaq and had broken the rules.“The next morning Jerry stormed into (publicist) Raymond Ridder’s office and said, ‘Have you seen the clips?’ Raymond said, ‘Yeah, it’s right here’ (pointing to the Daily News story). Jerry said, ‘No, not that one, this one.’ He showed him the Long Beach story with my byline. He made Raymond call me, and then Jerry erupted on me.“I’m sure anybody who covered the Lakers remembered getting Jerry when he’s in that mode of losing his temper. It’s kind of like a badge of honor. I’m guessing he didn’t remember the next day; he got it out and it was forgotten.”Stein could be a walking history of sports journalism in Southern California over the past 30 years. He started at the Saddleback Valley News when he was still in high school and got a job at the Register when he started at Cal State Fullerton. He did an internship at the Washington Post the summer of his junior year at Fullerton and then did one at the San Bernardino Sun as a senior, covering the California League and the San Bernardino Spirit – home and road – in 1991.Related Articlescenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “My first game was (future major leaguer) Mike Hampton’s no-hitter,” he recalled, adding that it was Hampton’s only victory that season; he was 1-7 with a 5.25 ERA. But fighting deadlines every night, while following the team to Reno, Stockton, Visalia, Bakersfield and the other garden spots of the Cal League was good training.He remembers the people who helped him move up. Mike Gallups, his high school journalism advisor at El Toro High, was an old high school classmate of the Register’s Earl Bloom, and Bloom helped get him on at the Register. Later, when he graduated from Fullerton at a time when jobs were scarce, Ken Daley – a former co-worker in Orange County and by then Dodgers beat writer at the Daily News – spoke up for him. Stein was hired by the Daily News for the copy desk, but within six months was writing about high school sports and pro tennis before the NBA beat opened in 1994.“That was my big chance,” he recalled. “Once I got on the Clippers, I wasn’t letting go.”He hasn’t [email protected]@Jim_Alexander on Twitter AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThat didn’t last. When you’re doing your job as a journalist, it can’t. And Stein has done his job so well through the years – covering the Clippers and then the Lakers for the Daily News, the Mavericks for the Dallas Morning News and the national basketball beat at Dallas, then for ESPN and now the New York Times – that he will be honored by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Thursday in Springfield, Mass., right alongside recently retired Clippers play-by-play man Ralph Lawler.Both men will receive the Curt Gowdy Media Award, given in recognition of distinguished service covering basketball.It will be a Southern California gathering this weekend, with lots of connected parts. Besides Stein and Lawler, former Lakers coach Del Harris (who Stein covered) will receive the John W. Bunn Lifetime Achievement Award at Thursday’s ceremony, along with Portland Trail Blazers general manager and president Harry Glickman.At Friday’s main induction ceremony, Bill Fitch (who Stein covered) will go into the Hall, although Fitch’s family announced Tuesday that for health reasons, he won’t be able to attend the ceremony. Additionally, Vlade Divac will be inducted as an international player, and Jerry West will be his presenter.“Surreal doesn’t even start to cover it,” Stein said.

first_imgThe country representative of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), Mr. Bafotigui Sako, has disclosed that his institution is planning the construction and installation of a 1megawatt ‘run of the river’ mini hydro-power station in Suakoko District, Bong County.The mini hydro-power station is expected to be constructed on the Mein River, and is expected to provide electricity to approximately 30% of households in Suakoko Town and 15% in the rural area of Suakoko District.He stressed that the goal of the project is to remove the institutional, technical, policy and economic barriers to the promotion of mini-hydro power for productive application in Liberia.The UNIDO country representative said that Liberia is reported to be one of the African countries with the highest amount of renewable water resources amenible to mini- and small-hydro power, which has the potential to play a significant role in the development of the national economy if effectively exploited.“Small hydro-power stations play a major roll in the development of the national economy and address the energy needs of rural communities in Liberia,” he indicated.According to him, when completed, this project will build on national priorities, taking into account recommendations made in the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS), as well as in the power sector master plan. According to that plan, the GoL will ‘begin to develop new hydropower generation capacity and assess other energy sources’ eight.The PRS’ goal for the energy sector is to “provide reliable, sustainable and affordable energy services to all Liberians in an environmentally sound manner.”   Mr. Sako further estimated that the project would bring electricity from the hydro station to various institutions, including government buildings, small and medium enterprises, and commercial buildings.The UNIDO boss made the disclosure on Monday December 9, 2013 at the opening of a ten-day training workshop held at the Mamba Point Hotel in Monrovia.The workshop focuses on Hydro Power Project Development in Liberia, and is held under the theme: “Small Hydro-power project Development in Liberia.”The workshop brings together 40 civil servants from line ministries and agencies, private universities and the Engineering Society of Liberia.It is being co-financed by United Nations Industrial Organization (UNIDO) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with Winrock International/Liberia Energy Sector Support Program (LESSP), which is serving as the implementing partner.Mr. Sako explained that the Suakoko mini-hydro power is the pilot project of the entire program, which is expected to lay the foundation for a market environment for mini hydro-based renewable energy in Liberia.He noted that similar projects have been successfully implemented by UNIDO in other African countries like Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya. Developing countries around the world such as Sri Lanka and Indonesia have also benefited from this activity.Currently, he is serving as representative to three West African countries, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.Earlier, the National Project Coordinator, A. Brahima Sackie urged the participants’ to make use of the knowledge and get prepared of the greater challenges is ahead of them. For her part, the Executive Director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and focal person of the mini hydro-power installation in the country, Madam Anyaa Vohiri, underscored that the EPA is committed to its partners in providing such services as relate to its mandate.As an institution, “We need technical people who will be able to undertake initiatives like this,” said Madam Vohiri.Also speaking at the workshop, Madam Jewel Howard Taylor, senior Senator for Bong County, welcomed the gesture and described it as timely for the people of her district.According to her, thirty percent of the county’s urban and peri-urban population needs to have access to reliable modern energy services, which will enable them to meet their basic needs and services.The senior Senator of Bong County also urged participants to make use of the training and thanked UNIDO and its partners for the opportunity.The Executive Director of Rural and Renewable Energy Agency (RREA), Augustus V.

South African designer at London fashion week

Malatsi is congratulated by Sir RichardBranson at a show in Johannesburgearlier this year.(Images: Virgin Unite)MEDIA CONTACTS• Lesego MalatsiMzansi Designers Emporium+27 11 336 8935RELATED ARTICLES• Conquering the NY fashion world• Local Xhosa heritage goes global• Zim teen new face of Louis Vuitton• Madiba more fashionable than everThe UK was treated to an array of Afrocentric designs when South Africa’s Lesego Malatsi showcased his collection at the London Fashion Week, which ran from 16 to 21 September 2011 at different venues across the city.Malatsi’s collection appeared at the Fashion’s Finest Show on 17 September, among work from US, UK, Nigerian and Ghanaian designers.“I don’t think any words can explain my feelings of showcasing at such an occasion, especially when it’s considered such a high privilege by my peers in the industry,” he said.The designer added that it was only when he landed in London that he realised what was happening – this made him anxious and he subsequently suffered a bout of flu.However, the nervousness subsided when he got down to doing the job, which was to show African creations in the heart of the UK.“I really tried to remain calm and as the outfits were being completed, I felt a sense of belonging. I realised that I’m actually ready to compete globally,” he said.London Fashion Week is one of four major events of its kind which take place twice a year. The others are in New York, Paris and Milan.Malatsi described his participation in the fashion week as “conquering one of his greatest challenges” and achieving one of his main goals.Speaking about the racial ratio of his models at the show, Malatsi said: “I don’t know the ratio, I didn’t think that way. I just think about people wearing beautiful clothes.” He doesn’t see his clothing as being just for catwalk models, but for everyone.Humble beginningsMalatsi was born and raised in Soweto, a sprawling township in south-western Johannesburg, and his journey to becoming a recognised designer wasn’t without its setbacks.He dreamed of studying design after school, but Malatsi couldn’t afford a tertiary education.When his father passed away, his mother used the money she received from his pension payout to send him to college.“It was difficult to study because fashion is one career that requires a lot of money, it can be elite. I didn’t realise that until I was midway through my studies, so it was not easy, but I wanted a good education,” said Malatsi.When he finished college be battled to get funding from banks because they were unwilling to invest in an unknown designer.His breakthrough came when his quest for funding led him to Virgin Unite, Richard Branson’s business mentoring foundation.Branson is the founder of the Virgin conglomerate of businesses.With guidance and funding, Malatsi was able to start Mzansi Designers Emporium.From unemployed to job-creatorMalatsi is one of a growing number of entrepreneurs in South Africa and already has 17 people working for him.“There is a lot of talent in Africa. It made me realise how important my success was – to not just me and my family, but for empowering other people,” he said.Malatsi never set out to become an entrepreneur, but now he’s working on a five-year-plan that will enable him to employ at least 850 people.He said that the extensive use of colour in his designs is a celebration of South Africa being known as the rainbow nation throughout the world.“I tried to transcend what is seen as European and what is seen as African, forget the racial lines and also change the perception of how clothes should be worn,” said Malatsi.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Leicester manager Rodgers raps Klopp for Choudhury ‘reaction’by Paul Vegas2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has once again defended Hamza Choudhury from criticism from Jurgen Klopp.Rodgers’ Liverpool counterpart was seething after Choudhury’s tackle on Mohamed Salah, which left the Egyptian out of action for Sunday’s clash with Manchester United.Rodgers insisted: “The reaction to Hamza was right over the top for me. The boy went in to make a tackle.”Mo Salah is a world-class player but you can tackle him. It wasn’t even a bad tackle.”You have to ensure they stay aggressive because that is their game, without overstepping the line.”If you look at the team we play in an aggressive but sporting way.”Young Hamza is one of those lads that play on the limit and is fighting for his career.”His strength is recovering the ball and retrieving the ball, which he is very good at, and he is learning other aspects of his game.”The only way is constant work and talking with him.” last_img read more

Cops open up closed case in Sioux Lookout after family testifies at

first_img[email protected]@katmarte Audrey Anderson (left) and her sister Norma Anderson in 1972.Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsWhen 19-year-old Audrey Anderson was found dead in 1972, Sioux Lookout, Ont., police thought she’d been involved in a motor vehicle accident.But now they aren’t so sure.“There is a lack of clarity in our minds about the way that the death occurred,” said Dr. Dirk Huyer, chief coroner for Ontario.“So I’ve reclassified the death from accidental to undetermined.”That means police can reopen their investigation. And Det.-Insp. Gilles Depratto said they need help to fill in the blanks.“We are appealing to the public for information in relation to what could have occurred if this wasn’t a traffic collision,” he said from Sioux Lookout.“The two, male parties involved may have told friends, family or acquaintances additional information that may be crucial to determining what really occurred.”The special tipline for the case is 1-807-738-5926.Depratto said the men left Lee’s Café in downtown Sioux Lookout in a pick-up truck before Anderson’s body was found on the shoulder of Drayton Road at 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 11, 1972.He declined to reveal the make, year and model of the truck. He also hesitated to declare the men, who were interviewed as part of the original accident investigation, potential suspects in the new probe.“I’d rather not comment on that,” Depratto said, noting the men are still living in the community.“If there is any information about the two individuals – any of the family members of those or friends of those individuals – then that information would be of great value,” added Huyer.Huyer and Depratto were at a news conference Tuesday at the OPP detachment in Sioux Lookout with members of Anderson’s family.“This was very difficult for the family,” her niece, Jolene Banning, said afterwards.“It was not long after they packed up and moved to Thunder Bay.”Huyer said the same autopsy results would have been found today.But photos from the scene didn’t age well so they have to rely on help from the public.“The main purpose of this is to provide some information that we can look at these individuals differently than as part of a motor vehicle collision,” Depratto added.Banning said questions persisted about what happened to Audrey and in 2017 they contacted the Family Information Liaison Unit, which was established as part of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).“My grandpa never stopped trying to find answers and going to the local police,” Banning said of Audrey’s dad who died in 2016.She and others testified at the inquiry in Thunder Bay before FILU put them in touch with Depratto, who is the OPP’s liaison to the inquiry.Depratto said he and Huyer have met with more than 20 mmiwg families that have questions about their loved ones’ cases.“As a result of that…we’re looking at three separate cases …that we’ve started re-looking at,” he said.Audrey had several jobs and was known as a hard worker.Her death shattered her family, Banning said, and haunted her parents“Her and my grandpa split up. It was really rough,” she said.“I remember being a little kid and my grandma still crying about it.”last_img read more

Together For LNG Campaign gives voice to supportive British Columbians

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – The Together For LNG Campaign (T4LNG Campaign) will give a voice to the tens of thousands of British Columbians who share that LNG development in B.C. is the key to a good future for the province.The campaign demonstrates to the public and elected representatives that there’s a broad base of support for LNG projects amongst the citizens of B.C.A coalition of workers, First Nations, students, educators, businesses and others feel the LNG Project will offer economic and social benefits to First Nations, government revenues, education and other services, by providing well-paying jobs for British Columbians. “By unlocking our world-class energy asset, B.C.’s liquid natural gas (LNG) industry will play an important role in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions by helping many Asian countries transition off coal,” said Chris Gardner, President of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association. “The strategic development of a strong LNG sector will also provide tens of thousands of jobs in construction, maintenance, and operations for people in B.C. and across Canada, and important revenue contributions to all levels of government.  LNG is the perfect opportunity for industry and government to work together to achieve great outcomes for Canada.”Paul de Jong, President of the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada, adds: “The liquid natural gas (LNG) that Canada has in such large supply is a key factor in worldwide demand for clean energy, strategic development of a strong LNG sector also provides for tens of thousands of construction, maintenance and operations jobs for Canadians, and provides robust contributions to provincial and national GDP. LNG in Canada is the perfect venue for industry and government to work together to achieve great outcomes,” de Jong says.T4LNG believes that the Campaign will build a community of interest to change the narrative around LNG. By working together, the public can let our elected leaders know there’s a broad base of support for LNG development. The coalition believes B.C. has the opportunity to help the world transition to a greener future, create prosperity at home and greatly reduce our global carbon footprint moving forward.Paul de Jong, President of the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada, adds; “The liquid natural gas (LNG) that Canada has in such large supply is a key factor in worldwide demand for clean energy.“LNG not only offers skilled workers the opportunity for employment while building the plant but also the opportunity for apprentices to learn the skillsets from their mentors. We will not only be building an LNG plant, but building career paths for hundreds if not thousands of young British Columbians who want to work in the construction industry,” says Tom Sigurdson, Executive Director of the B.C. Building Trades.“Blueberry River First Nation is a small community that plays a big role in LNG,” says Judy Desjarlais, President of Topnotch Oilfield Contracting and a member of the Blueberry River First Nation in northeast B.C. “All the communities in this area have signed off on it. A lot of us own businesses and a lot of us are benefiting from the work that’s happening in our backyard.”Ramona McDonald, President of Complete Safety Services in Fort St. John says LNG jobs will make a huge difference in the lives of First Nations peoples. “Probably 50 percent of my employees are of aboriginal descent. When they can go out and buy Christmas presents for their children because they’ve had a job and were able to make money, that brings me joy,” says McDonald. “We shouldn’t be in poverty, we shouldn’t see people suffering in this country, because we have what it takes to get everybody working again.”Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead framed the LNG conversation in terms of higher values. “Communities are built around quality of life, ‘health and happiness,” he said, “Health, education and economic opportunities are the pillars. We are a province built on resource development. It is the foundation for these pillars. We all need to support responsible resource development.”last_img read more
