England Sevens book Wellington quarter-final place

first_imgEngland were slick and direct in their opening two outings to make sure they avoided any slip-ups in their bid to close a four-point gap on series leaders Fiji and New Zealand. Two Norton tries, one apiece from Turner and Greg Barden, and a try with his first touch for new cap Tom Mitchell earned them a 27-12 win over the Cooks, with Arthur Mui and Sean Fletcher replying late on.Then they shut out the USA 29-0 with two more Norton efforts, Turner’s 17th of the season and further tries from Mitchell and Christian Lewis-Pratt, who added two conversions.

first_img AmericasColombia AmericasColombia Receive email alerts Information hero Claudia Duque There’s no respite in Colombia for those who try to cover enforced disappearances, the recruitment of child soldiers, the failure to punish crimes of violence and the infiltration of government services by paramilitary groups. Leading investigative journalist Claudia Duque has often found this to her cost since 2001, when she was kidnapped by officials with the Administrative Security Department (DAS), Colombia’s main intelligence agency. After the DAS spied on her while pretending to protect her, she fled abroad from 2004 to 2006. Following her return, she and her 10-year-old daughter were the target of death threats in 2008, so she fled abroad again, returning later the same year.

The City’s busline has new name and a new logo, but step aboard and you’ll find the same reliable service and drivers and convenient routes of the former Pasadena Area Rapid Transit System (ARTS).The new brand, introduced Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015 by City officials and representatives from ArtCenter College of Design, is intended to reflect the important growth of Pasadena Transit since it began in 1994.Also on hand for the official introduction was ArtCenter graduate Julie Yeow, who developed the clean, bold logo and branding materials for the City’s Department of Transportation. Yeow described the theme as retaining a “friendly energy” that communicates Pasadena Transit’s primary goal of connecting people and places in Pasadena. To convey the theme of making connections, Yeow integrated iconic images of Pasadena including the Colorado Street Bridge, the national historical landmark Pasadena City Hall, the Civic Auditorium and ArtCenter.From its humble beginnings 21 years ago as a one-line, free, local “shopper shuttle” to one of the largest, locally funded public bus systems in Los Angeles County, Pasadena Transit now offers six distinct routes that connect more than 1.5 million passengers each year to local destinations in Pasadena as well as to regional public bus systems and light rail stations.In addition to the new look and name, City officials announced that Pasadena Transit’s 25-bus fleet is now equipped with data transmission technology that provides customers with real-time arrival info via the web, smart phones or tablet devices. Passengers can access the real-time arrival data from Pasadena Transit buses by calling 511 or going online to www.Go511.com, www.pasadenatransit.net, or Google Maps. The real-time bus arrival technology was made possible by grants from the U.S. government and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.The Pasadena Transit fleet includes 19 of the 32-foot-long, 27-seat buses and six 25-foot-long, 20-seat buses. All buses use CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) fuel; can accommodate wheelchairs and have bicycle racks at the front of the buses.The branding campaign was a collaborative, multi-year effort by the City with ArtCenter College of Design, a global leader in art and design education. Year after year in similar collaborations, major companies from around the world in the technology, fashion, sports apparel, automotive and manufacturing industries work with ArtCenter students and faculty on their marketing, branding and logo campaigns.Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!

Corbetts reject ‘deluded propaganda’ of Martens family

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR No vaccines in Limerick yet WhatsApp TAGSfeaturedJason CorbettMolly martens Twitter Print NewsBreaking newsCorbetts reject ‘deluded propaganda’ of Martens familyBy Staff Reporter – August 31, 2015 1398 Linkedin Email Family of Jason Corbett “devastated” after receiving “bombshell” news his killers will get bail after being offered “manslaughter” plea deal center_img Previous articleCandle light vigil to be held at Limerick bridge where workers diedNext articleHome is where the heart is Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up MOLLY Martens has vowed to take “ever legal step” to regain custody of Jason Corbett’s children, Jack and Sarah, but the family of the deceased Limerick man say that the Texan, who is  “person of interest” in the murder investigation is embarking, with the Martens family, on a campaign of deluded and very unrealistic desperate propaganda.Speaking to Newstalk radio this Monday morning, Ms Martens said that she has had no contact with the two children despite her pleas for them to contact her on Facebook.“I have not spoken to them since my visitation with them under which we were all under the impression that it was a visitation and not a good bye.”Refusing to give any other comment, Ms Martens said that her uncle, Mike Earnest would speak more.Originally from Limerick city Jason Corbett (39) died on August 2 in his home in North Carolina during a domestic disturbance.His American wife Molly Martens Corbett and her father Thomas Martens (65), a former FBI agent, have been named by police as ‘persons of interest’ in the investigation into his death, however nobody has been arrested.Molly’s uncle, Mike Earnest, a special agent fraud investigator with the Federal Law Enforcement claimed, that Jason Corbett had said he intended to, “get joint citizenship for himself and the children. This would mean that it would help Molly to be able to adopt them.“The children don’t deserve to be wrenched away without being allowed a proper goodbye. The children were never interviewed by the court and asked what they wanted. Molly and all the children’s family here have not heard from them since leaving here almost two weeks ago.“This is why she is sending them messages over Facebook to let them know how much she loves them and in the hope she will hear from them. ”“Not taking one thing away from their father, but a large part of that – if not the majority of that – is from what they’ve gotten from their mother” he told Newstalk Breakfast.“And I will say this: Molly is very, very distraught about what has happened but she has not lost any faith that her children will one day be returned to her care”.“And she’s prepared to take every legal step available to see that happen” he added.Rejecting the comments made by the Martens family, John Corbett said that on behalf of his family “we have tried to handle this traumatic ongoing very real human story regarding my brother Jason Corbett’s brutal murder and the loving care of his two children Jack and Sarah in a dignified Christian way.“But we feel we need to respond to the deluded and very unrealistic desperate propaganda by the Marten’s family.Jason, Jack and Sarah’s legal resident status or green card application was deliberately done through Jason’s job by Jason. Specifically to protect the kids. He could have easily done it through Molly’s family and was under tremendous pressure from them all to agree…“However, because of his now very fatal concerns, he applied through his job.“Jason never entertained the idea of making his children dual American/Irish Citizens as Mr Michael Ernest falsely stated…“While we can’t comment on the time kids spent with Molly, you can take from that that there were concerns and these concerns were explored and made very clear at the court hearing.“My sister and family are focused on the care nurturing and needs of Jack and Sarah and not themselves.“There is no narcissism on our side only pure love for my brothers children who was murdered in his own home -the home Jason bought for his children and Molly to live in.“Of course the Martens are willing to take every legal step, they are using uncaringly coldly my dead brother’s money which he left to his kids to fund their callous agenda…“If she had any real maternal motherly feelings or love for the kids or sensitivity she would not be seeking to traumatise them…“However, I can assure the public the kids are not even aware of any of this coverage…“Despite the fact that Molly Martens is bombarding her face book page with pictures of my brothers and Mags children.“With not one mention of my beloved brother Jason Corbett.”In the lengthy statement, Mr Corbett revealed that “Molly Martens took my brothers children for ice team the day after Jason was killed. Most normal loving caring people would find this unusual.On the killing of his brother, John Corbett said that “there has not been one ounce of remorse or compassion from the Martens Family to those kids for killing their dad, no remorse or contact to my Mam and Dad for killing their son. No one, nothing only Facebook posts to appear to the public as if they are concerned about the kids.”This, Mr Corbett said is done “to put up a very false deceitful image to try and protect their own necks.”Jack and Sarah are in a very normal secure loving environment Mr Corbett said adding that the two young children are mourning their dad and “not once asked after her”.“They are out of the awful unhealthy environment they have been subjected to. Far away from the cold apathetic Martens family.Mr Corbett added revealed that notes, phone numbers and other details were hidden in the children’s toys and that Jack and Sarah were warned not to tell anyone.This Mr Corbett said was “not a normal thing to do… Of course they immediately told Aunty Tracey”.“The Martens Family in the desperate throws of survival, with no real love for my nephew and niece.“My poor abused brother is dead because he was a loving husband who wanted to protect his kids and bring them home.“They are trying coldly to attack his character because he cannot speak for himself.“I was not there to protect my brother Jason from the cowardsMr Corbett said that the family respects the Davidson county sheriff’s office and that of the DA Garry Frank.“We hope the DA will bring charges soon so my kind, generous, loving brother can have justice and the world will hear the real truth and not the deluded deceitful version of the Martens family.“We will not rest until those who murdered my brother are convicted.The statement closed with a clarification of “any misconceptions out there. Molly Martens was hired to do a job which was general cleaning and bring Jack and Sarah to and from crèche every day. This continued up to mid-2011 until they moved to America.“In the three and half years, there has been 18 visits in Ireland and America along with numerous calls and letters both ways which were managed in the main by their daddy.Mr Corbett said his niece and nephew are settling in well since they arrived home to Limerick and are both due to start school this week.

Analysis: why is sugar supply under threat?

first_imgCommodity price spikes are one thing – bakers have grown used to those. But price rises in flour, butter, cocoa – you name it – pale into insignificance next to the threat that sugar supplies will run out in the UK and eye-watering prices are on the way.World market sugar prices reached a 30-year high in November and this will be the third year that global production/consumption has been in deficit. Of course, most of the sugar consumed in Europe is produced in the EU, which still operates import tariffs. In the EU, of the 16.5m tonnes consumed, 13.3m tonnes comes from European producers. One commodities broker told BB he believed part of the availability problem stemmed from difficulties in securing the imported sugar that makes up the balance, based on world prices and weather affecting crops. Russia, Brazil and South Africa  have battled hot, dry weather. Meanwhile, Indonesia and Australia have suffered extreme wet weather. The global production response to the price spike in the first part of 2010 has been smaller than first expected. With many harvests now coming to an end, it has become apparent that global availability at 168.4m metric tonnes raw value (mtrv) in 2010/11 will not be enough to meet predicted consumption of 170.8m mtrv. Caught short While EU sugar refiners may have covered 90% of their requirement and waited to top up their supplies on the spot market, high prices and availability problems mean they have been caught short. In Europe as a whole, there is not enough sugar to cover contracts and this will affect every- thing from sugars to syrups. “Weather conditions have caused a lack of volume, and production (of sugar) has not been as much as people were anticipating, which pushed prices up on the world market,” said Eifion Owen, Bako Northern & Scotland’s purchasing manager. “People were anticipating next year would be a decent harvest, but it hasn’t materialised that way.” To make matters worse, the EU indicated recently that it would be issuing 350,000 tonnes of export licences, meaning that a big quantity of sugar would exit the EU, sending shockwaves through the industry at a time when sugar supplies are running out. The Committee of European Users of Sugar (CIUS), which represents the interests of food and beverage sugar users, has called for this sugar not to be exported and to be made available to EU consumers. Following lobbying, the European Commission’s sugar management committee has postponed this decision until 9 December. “If this were to go ahead, we believe it would put the market in an increased problem of supply. It’s not a question of price, it’s a question of physical supply. There’s no more sugar available,” said Muriel Korter, CIUS secretary-general. Last month, the Commission suspended its E98/ton import duty to make imports cheaper, but CIUS said this is not enough. Availability is scarce and Tate & Lyle has announced prices will rise by E176 per tonne. Impact on bakers So how will this situation affect bakers, large to small? “It’s back to front – the bigger your requirement, the worse it is,” explained Bako’s Owen. “Smaller quantity sugar is probably more competitive than large volumes, because suppliers are scared of getting into a contract they cannot fulfil. There is sugar out there and people can buy it, but they will have to pay exceedingly high prices to import it. Everybody is on the hunt for sugar and trying to get their contracts covered, especially the bigger users, as they are the most vulnerable.” Volatility is here to stay and problems are unlikely to ease until next year’s harvest, especially as traders remain attracted to foodstuff commodities. “The market has been volatile and there are differing views as to how much is down to money chasing commodities, and how much is due to genuine shortage,” said John Duffy, chief executive of one of the UK’s largest cake manufacturers, Finsbury Food Group.“The sugar market has gone through big structural changes (EU Sugar Reform), but this sort of short-term localised spike doesn’t seem to be driven by that. In the short term we have contracts in place, so availability is not the issue. Clearly, it’s another situation of input price inflation on an essential ingredient in bakery and it’s unwelcome. I don’t think that it’s particularly helpful to end-manufacturers to have basic foodstuff commodities subject to speculation. Unfortunately, we cannot control that, so we have to deal with the consequences of it.” Toby Cohen, head of analysis at brokers Czarnikow, said the outlook for the market remains extremely fragile. “The sugar futures market has fallen from its recent highs and the underlying fundamental trends have strengthened, which suggests that the fall in prices is a function of the unprecedented rise in volatility and global macro risks, as opposed to being a sugar-related event,” he said.“Given the heightened tension in global markets, sharp falls, as well as rises in commodity values, should be expected – even if these do not correlate on a day-to-day basis with underlying market fundamentals. However, in terms of longer-moving trends, it is very apparent that the market has not resolved the underlying physical imbalance and further supply stress has to be expected.”last_img read more

SMC hires new admissions director

first_imgSarah Gallagher Dvorak, a 1999 alumna of Saint Mary’s College and previous director of undergraduate admissions at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., has been named Saint Mary’s new director of admissions, the College announced in a June 18 press release.According to the press release, Gallagher Dvorak received a bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Saint Mary’s and a master’s degree in mass communication from California State University-Northridge. “We couldn’t be happier with our choice of a new director,” vice president for enrollment management Mona Bowe said in a press release. “We were blessed with a very well-qualified candidate pool, yet we only had to look in our virtual backyard to find the strongest one.”In addition to her position at George Mason, Gallagher Dvorak’s career has also included work at Edelman Worldwide Public Relations in Chicago as an assistant account executive; WSBT-TV in South Bend as a news producer; Marymount High School in Los Angeles as communications coordinator; Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania as assistant director of admissions; and Indiana University Bloomington as associate director of recruitment outreach and senior associate director of marketing and communications, as stated in a press release.Gallagher Dvorak said her various roles have provided her with a wide breadth of experience and knowledge about higher education and college admission. As director of admissions at Saint Mary’s, Gallagher Dvorak will direct all efforts related to the recruitment and admission of undergraduates at Saint Mary’s. “This involves a number of areas, including, but not limited to, international and national travel and outreach to prospective students and families, managing the visit experience and events both on and off campus, coordinating our alumnae recruitment program, managing the application decision process and marketing and communication efforts,” she said. “I also supervise and manage a team of 17 staff members. I’m really excited to build upon the great work my team has accomplished and take the SMC Office of Admission to the next level; to think outside the box about how we can reach prospective students and spread the message about the quality of both a Saint Mary’s education and an all-women’s education.”Bowe said Gallagher Dvorak is well-versed on the challenges of recruiting undergraduate students, and she has a proven record of attracting great students.“I believe that what makes her unique for this position is that she is one of our own Belles,” she said. “She values the education she received at Saint Mary’s and can speak first hand to the strength of the liberal arts, writing program and other unique aspects of a Saint Mary’s education. She is a great leader, and like many of our Belles, a great role model for our young staff.”Gallagher Dvorak said she has taken on this role at the perfect time, as everyone from the Vice President to the President of the Board of Trustees is supportive of the admissions team’s efforts.“Recruiting for a small, private, all-women’s college can be challenging, but I have complete confidence that our team will succeed,” Gallagher Dvorak said. “I was also lucky enough to hire a number of new counselors this summer, and I look forward to bringing our team together throughout the year in an effort to get to know one another better and to work as cohesively as possible toward our goals.”After spending the last 15 years in a variety of cities around the country, Gallagher Dvorak said she is thrilled to return home to Saint Mary’s. “Doing what I love at a place I love is a dream come true. Saint Mary’s molded me into the capable woman I am today, and I strive to use the knowledge I have gained throughout my career to spread the mission of Saint Mary’s both nationally and internationally,” she said. “I believe I have two significant responsibilities: to lead a team that empowers young women to seek out a college that will help them grow in mind, body and spirit; and to help these women find the place at which they can explore, discover and ultimately become their best selves.”Tags: admissions director, Saint Mary’s Admissions, SMClast_img read more
