Denmark to support local communities in Coxs Bazar

first_imgBangladesh and Denmark signed a political declaration regarding Denmark’s support to the local communities in Cox’s Bazar.The signing ceremony was held at Bangladesh foreign secretary’s office in Dhaka on Tuesday, says a foreign ministry press release.Foreign secretary Md. Shahidul Haque and state secretary of the Danish Development Cooperation Martin Bille Hermann discussed the present Rohingya crisis and bilateral trade between two countries.Trade between the two countries has doubled over the last five years and it seems clear that the cooperation is moving from aid to trade.The fast and sudden Rohingya influx, repeating floods and cyclones during the monsoon have put severe pressure on livelihoods in Cox’s Bazar. Denmark has allocated an additional $5.2 million to the existing country programme which includes agricultural education, climate change adaptation and human rights support to the local people in Cox’s Bazar. Denmark was one of the first responding donors to the on-going crisis and has so far committed over $18.7 million for humanitarian relief of the Rohingya refugees through UN agencies and NGO’s.As a part of the cooperation, Denmark and Bangladesh hosted a joint Green Growth Conference in April in Dhaka where experts from both countries discussed how Bangladesh can embark upon a green transition as Denmark has undergone.last_img read more

How to fix Resolving Host DNS issues on Windows

first_imgHow to fix Resolving Host (DNS) issues on Windows by Martin Brinkmann on October 20, 2016 in Internet – 2 commentsSometimes when you are using your computer you may experience issues when trying to connect to specific sites, services or using specific programs.Depending on the program in question, you may get a status message such as “resolving host” or something similar.Google Chrome for instance may display that message in the status bar when you connect to sites, while Firefox displays “looking up” instead. While the issue may be limited to individual sites or programs, it may also be the case that it is affecting any program or site on the device.What does Resolving Host mean?Whenever you connect to a site in a program like Chrome or Firefox, things happen in the background that you usually don’t see unless something breaks.One of the things is that the program uses a DNS server to “translate” a domain name like or to an IP address. While humans use domains, computer’s use IP addresses.Computers don’t have an address book of all domain to IP address links which means that programs need to look them up when requests are made.A DNS server is contacted which looks the information up and returns the IP address associated with the domain.If that process takes longer than it should, a resolving host status may be displayed.Browsers, Windows and other programs may cache DNS records for some time to eliminate the look up phase of connections.What can you do if you get Resolving Host issues?There are numerous reasons why you may get DNS look up timeouts or slow look ups. The first thing you may want to do is define the issue as best as you can:When did it start?Is it permanent or temporary?Is it affecting all programs or only select programs?One example: I noticed DNS look up issues recently when using the Private Internet Access VPN (PIA). Whenever I would connect to PIA, I’d get Resolving Host issues in Chrome, and longer loading times in other web browsers. You may pinpoint the issue to something similar.Fixing Resolving Host issuesDepending on the issue, you may be able to fix it quickly. One of the easier fixes that you may want to try first is to switch to a different DNS service to see if it resolves the issue.Most Internet connections use the Internet Provider’s DNS server for look ups by default. If that server is slow or badly configured, you may be able to resolve the errors by switching DNS servers.Note: All requests are made to the DNS server you pick. This can be a privacy issue, so pick the public provider with care.You may change the DNS server manually, or use a program for that. Unless you are familiar with the manual operation, I suggest you try a program like DNS Jumper or DNS Switch which let you do that easily.We ran some tests back in 2015 to find the fastest DNS provider, and you may use the information there as well to pick one of the DNS providers.Setting Dns Server manuallyThe process differs slightly between Windows versions. On Windows 10, you’d right-click the network icon in the system tray area of the operating system, and select Network and Sharing Center.There you’d select “change adapter settings”. This opens the list of network connections. Look for connections that active and enabled. Right-click on the one that is used on your system, and select properties from the menu.Double-click the “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) item, and add two custom DNS servers to the page that opens.You may also need to switch from “obtain DNS server address automatically” to “use the following DNS server addresses” before you can do that.If your connection uses the IPv6 protocol instead, perform the operation on Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) instead.Other options to exploreSwitching DNS servers will resolve the issue usually. There are however situations where this may not be the case.The following list provides you with pointers that may help you if that is the case for you:DNS Caching: Windows caches DNS look ups, and some programs may do so as well. You may want to flush the Windows DNS Cache, and the cache of the program you are using if it uses one, to find out if old entries may have caused the loading issues. In Chrome, you may load chrome://net-internals/#dns and click on the clear host cache to do that. Firefox users may use an extension like DNS Flusher for that.Disable DNS Prefetching: Some programs may use prefetching to look up DNS information prior to a user’s action. The idea is to speed up the time it takes to load the site by performing certain operations in advance. Chrome does that, and you may disable the feature by loading chrome://settings/ in the address bar, scrolling down and clicking on “show advanced settings”, and making sure that “use a prediction service to load pages more quickly” is unchecked.The Hosts file: If you have added entries to the Hosts file, either manually or by running programs, resolving host issues may be caused by it. On Windows, you find the hosts file under C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. This solution may work well if you notice issues with some sites or a single site only. Also, you may add IP addresses to that site’s hostname to the Hosts file to force the look up. This can be useful if the DNS server returns an old IP address or none at all, while you know the right IP.Check the Local Area Network Settings: LAN settings may interfere with look ups as well. You find them in the Internet Options which you can open from Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or via the classic Control Panel. If you are using Chrome, load chrome://settings/, then show advanced settings. Scroll down until you find Network listed there. Click on “change proxy settings” which opens the Internet Properties window. In that window, switch to connections, and click on the lan settings button there. You may want to disable automatic configuration and proxy server if listed there. Note: if this is a work computer, you may not be able to do that, and if you are, Internet may not work anymore so better leave those settings alone.Now You: Know of another solution to fix DNS lookup issues?SummaryArticle NameHow to fix Resolving Host (DNS) issues on WindowsDescriptionThe guide walks you through the steps of troubleshooting resolving host / DNS look up issues on Windows machines or particular programs like Chrome or Firefox.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

ETC IGLTA and VISITFLANDERS explore LGBTQ travel potential in Europe

first_imgMore articles on eTurboNews click here ETC, IGLTA and VISITFLANDERS explore LGBTQ travel potential in EuropeThe European Travel Commission (ETC) united with the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and the Flemish tourist board VISITFLANDERS to present the Educational Forum on LGBTQ Tourism at the Hilton Brussels Grand Place on 21 June. The event provided a preview of key findings from The Handbook on LGBTQ Tourism in Europe, scheduled for release next month as a joint research project from ETC and the IGLTA Foundation. Forum speakers also addressed ways to make Europe safer and more inclusive for LGBTQ travelers, shared best practices for reaching the diverse segments of this market, and discussed the future evolution of LGBTQ tourism in Europe.“We are proud to be a partner of ETC’s first event and publication on the LGBTQ travel market and to engage many of our European members in this important discussion,” said IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella, who delivered opening remarks at the forum along with VISITFLANDERS CEO & ETC President Peter De Wilde. “While Europe is a global leader for the LGBTQ market segment, not every country is equal in its LGBTQ inclusiveness—and the research clearly showed that inclusive destinations have the best opportunity to attract diverse visitors.” Handbook author Peter Jordan presented the first look at this soon-to-be-released research, which focuses on perceptions of 35 states within Europe from LGBTQ travelers in five long-haul markets: Russia, China, Japan, Brazil and the United States. An open-minded culture topped the list of reasons for travelers to select a destination and LGBTQ events were the leading choice for their next visit. “More tolerance, respect and understanding are the basic principles of Europe to become the ultimate inclusive tourism destination worldwide,” said ETC Executive Director Eduardo Santander. “We are very proud to see from the results of the study and the discussions today that Europe is seen as a highly desirable travel destination for the LGBTQ segment. But we know that we should not be complacent as there is still room for improvement. ETC remains committed to this goal, and events like the Educational Forum are a step in the right direction.”Forum speakers also included Thomas Bachinger, Vienna Tourist Board; Mattej Valencic, Luxury Slovenia; Mateo Asensio, Turisme de Barcelona; Anna Shepherd, ILGA Europe; Patrick Bontinck,; Kaspars Zalitis, Baltic Pride; and Sean Howell of Hornet.“We want to have Flanders evolving towards a society in which sexual orientation will never be a question nor issue,” said De Wilde, who also moderated a panel discussion on communicating diversity to the industry and travelers with journalists from DIVA in the UK, blu media group in Germany and Out & About in Denmark. “On the contrary, we want the LGBTQ traveler to be treated with integrity and respect. VISITFLANDERS will continue to break down barriers and will focus on promoting inclusive tourism. We like to use our strongest assets towards these goals like our gastronomy, our Flemish Masters and our cycling culture. All topics that might trigger and inspire LGBTQ travelers from the entire globe to visit Flanders.”yahooShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)last_img read more

The best backend tools in web development

first_imgIf you’re a backend developer, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the range of backend development tools available. It goes without saying that you should use what works for you but sometimes it’s not that easy to even work that out. With this in mind, this year’s Skill Up report offers a useful insight into some of the most popular backend tools being used today. Let’s take a look at what tools came out on top. That should help you make decisions about what you’re going to use or maybe even just learn. Read the Skill Up report in full. Sign up to our weekly newsletter and download the PDF for free. Node.js More than 50% respondents said, they prefer Node.js, the popular server-side Javascript coding framework. Node.js is a Javascript runtime that runs on the V8 JavaScript runtime engine. Node.js adds capabilities to Javascript (front-end language) to let it do more than just creating interactive websites. It uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. The latest stable release of Node, Node 10, will be the next candidate in line for the Long Term Support (LTS) in October 2018. Node.js 10.0 comes with plenty of new features like OpenSSL 1.1.0 security toolkit, upgraded npm, N-API, and much more. Get started with learning Node.js with the following books: Learning Node.js DevelopmentLearn Node.js by Building 6 ProjectsRESTful Web API Design with Node.js 10 – Third Edition ASP.NET Core The next popular alternative was ASP. NET Core with over 25% developers approving it as their choice of backend framework. ASP.NET Core is the open-source cross-platform framework for building backends, web apps and services, and IoT apps. According to the skill-up survey, it was also one of the most popular framework used by developers. It provides a cloud-ready, environment-based configuration system. It seamlessly integrates with popular client-side frameworks and libraries, including Angular, React, and Bootstrap. Get started with ASP.NET Core by reading: Learning ASP.NET Core 2.0Mastering ASP.NET Core 2.0ASP.NET Core 2 High Performance – Second Edition Express.js Developers and tech pros also like to work with Express JS, and hence it ranked No. 3 on our list. Express JS is the pre-built Node JS framework that can help developers build faster and smarter websites and web apps. Express basically extends Node.js to build complete web apps. It is the perfect framework to learn for developers, who are fluent in Node.js, but want to transition to creating apps from just server-side technologies. Express is lightweight and comes with extra, built-in web application features and the Express API to support the already robust, feature-packed Node.js platform. Express is not just limited to NodeJS. It also works seamlessly with other modules and offers HTTP utilities and middleware for creating APIs. It can help developers master single-page and multiple-page websites, as well as some complex web apps. You can go through Projects in ExpressJS [Video], a complete course to learn professional web development using Express.js. Laravel Next, was Laravel, a prominent member of a new generation of web frameworks. It is one of the most popular PHP frameworks and is also free and and open source. It features: A simple, fast routing engine Powerful dependency injection container Multiple back-ends for session and cache storage Database agnostic schema migrations Robust background job processing Real-time event broadcasting The latest stable release, Laravel 5 is a substantial upgrade with a lot of new toys, at the same time retaining the features that made Laravel wildly successful. It comes with plenty of architectural as well as design-based changes. Start building with Laravel with these videos. Beginning Laravel [Video]Laravel Foundations: Basics to Every App [Video] Java EE The fifth most popular choice of backend tool is the Java EE. The Enterprise Java standard or Java EE is a collection of technologies and APIs for the Java platform designed to support Enterprise. By enterprise, we mean applications classified as large-scale, distributed, transactional and highly-available, designed to support mission-critical business requirements. Applications written to comply with the Java EE specification do not tie developers to a specific vendor; instead, they can be deployed to any Java EE compliant application server. The Java EE server application implements the Java EE platform APIs and provides the standard Java EE services. The latest stable release, Java EE 8 brings with it a load of features, mainly targeting newer architectures such as microservices, modernized security APIs, and cloud deployments. Our best picks for learning Java EE: Java EE 8 Application DevelopmentArchitecting Modern Java EE ApplicationsJava EE 8 High Performance The other backend tools which were among the top picks by developers included: Spring, a programming and configuration model for building modern Java-based enterprise applications, on any kind of deployment platform. Django, a powerful Python web framework for creating RESTful web services. It reduces the amount of trivial code, which simplifies the creation of web applications and results in faster development. Flask, a framework for building web servers in Python. It is a micro framework, meaning it’s not a full stack web application development framework. It just gives the developers very basics to get a web server running. Firebase, Google’s mobile platform to help developers run mobile backend code without managing servers and develop high-quality apps. Ruby on Rails, one of the oldest, backend technology. A certain percentage of people still prefer using ruby on rails for their backend code. Rails is a flexible and IDE friendly framework with easy functions and manipulations and the support of the powerful ruby language. The entire skill up survey report can be read on the Packt website, which details on what developers think about the changing tech landscape and the parameters that are driving that change. This survey report is launched at the start of the Skill Up campaign, where every eBook and video will be available for $10. Go grab your free content now!last_img read more

Facebook open sources LogDevice a distributed data store for logs

first_imgFacebook made its distributed log system, called LogDevice available as an open source project, two weeks back. It is a highly scalable and fault-tolerant distributed data store for sequential data. LogDevice comes with features such as high write availability, consistency guarantees, non-deterministic record placement, and a local log store. LogDevice is widely used at Facebook. Existing use cases of LogDevice include stream processing pipelines, distribution of index updates in large distributed databases, machine learning pipelines, replication pipelines, and durable reliable task queues. LogDevice is designed from the ground up so that it can serve different logs with high reliability and efficiency at scale. It is also highly tunable which allows the use cases as mentioned above to be optimized for the right set of trade-offs when it comes to durability-efficiency and consistency-availability space. Let’s have a look at the key features of LogDevice. High write availability LogDevice comes with high write availability which is uncommon in most of the existing logging applications of Facebook. LogDevice efficiently separates record sequencing from record storage. It uses non-deterministic placement of records which improves the write availability and betters the tolerate temporary load imbalances caused by spikes in the write load on individual logs. Consistency Guarantees The consistency guarantees provided by a LogDevice log are similar to the ones provided by a record-oriented file system. It comes with built-in data loss detection and reporting. In case data loss occurs, the Log sequence numbers (LSNs) of all records that were lost gets reported to every reader attempting to read the affected log and range of LSNs. Although, there are no ordering guarantees provided for records of different logs. Non-deterministic record placement LogDevice has a different approach when it comes to record placement. First, the ordering of records in a log is decoupled from the actual storage of record copies. For each log in a LogDevice cluster, it runs a sequencer object whose only job is issuing the monotonically increasing sequence numbers as records. The sequencer runs either on a storage node or on a node which has been reserved for sequencing. After the record has been stamped with a sequence number, the copies of that record get stored on any storage node within a cluster. The LogDevice client library is capable of performing the reordering and occasional de-duplication of records. This makes sure that the records get delivered to the reader application in the order of their LSNs. Local Log Store The local log store of LogDevice is called LogsDB. LogsDB is a write-optimized datastore which has been designed to keep the number of disks seeks small and controlled. Also, the write and read IO patterns on the storage device are mostly sequential. The write-optimized data stores offer great performance when writing data, even if it belongs to multiple files or logs. Apart from that, LogsDB is quite efficient for log tailing workloads, which is a common pattern of log access where records are delivered to readers soon after they are written. These records are never read again except in rare cases such as massive backfills. LogsDB is built on top of RocksDB, which is an ordered durable key-value data store based on LSM trees. LogsDB act as a time-ordered collection of RocksDB column families. Each RocksDB instance is called a LogsDB partition. For more information, visit the official LogDevice website.

Despite doubling of staff Costa Ricas judicial branch resolves far fewer cases

first_imgThe number of cases resolved by Costa Rican courts has declined precipitously over the past 13 years despite a doubling of judicial staff over the same time period, according to a new report from Costa Rica’sState of the Nation Program.The “State of Justice” report also found that resolution of legal complaints is increasingly expensive for the country, in part becuase of the justice system’s large number of employees.Per capita, the judicial branch has doubled its staff since 2000, from 120 employees for every 100,000 citizens to 238 employees for every 100,000 in 2013. This increase, however, did not translate into greater efficiency in terms of the number of cases prosecuted, the report found.In fact, the justice system may be much less efficient now than it was at the start of the millenium.In 2000, a total of 841 cases were resolved by a single court, meaning they ended without any appeals to higher courts. But that number dropped to 486 by 2013, according to the report.Costa Rican judges issued an average of 958 sentences in 2000, but by 2012 that figure was just 143.Also, the justice system began promoting alternative dispute resolution in 2000, but these mechanisms were only used in 1.3 percent of cases evaluated in the report.The report was the first time the State of the Nation Program has evaluated the country’s justice system. The program is a collaboration between Costa Rica’s public universities and the government ombudsman’s office.Supreme Court President Zarela Villanueva said justices acknowledge the “weakness in efficiency” highlighted by the report. But she said the increase in staff is justified by the growth of services offered, as well as new departments and facilities created in recent years to provide citizens with more effective service.The report also highlighted the large number of legal complaints that never make it to court. That can be a good sign, State of Justice coordinator Evelyn Villareal explained.In 2013 judicial offices received nearly 600,000 complaints, of which 65 percent were dismissed or archived, meaning they did not end in a trial or final ruling. In one of every three cases, a judge dismissed a complaint for lack of merit.Of all criminal complaints filed in 2013, 32 percent were archived by the prosecution, meaning they couldn’t attribute a crime to any suspect. Another one-third of complaints were rejected because of weak evidence.Only 15 percent of criminal complaints ended in a sentence, of which 8.7 percent resulted in conviction while the remaining 6.5 percent resulted in acquittal.Villareal conceeded that the report didn’t reflect the full reality of Costa Rica’s justice system. (But) “it is a starting point for research in areas not previously investigated in the country,” she said.The study is available on State of the Nation’s website (in Spanish).

Addressing the plastic problem through innovative partnerships

first_imgAbout SPTOEstablished in 1983 as the Tourism Council of the South Pacific, the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) is the mandated organisation representing Tourism in the region. Its 20 Government members are American Samoa, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Marshall Islands, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Rapa Nui Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu Wallis & Futuna and the People’s Republic of China. In addition to government members, the South Pacific Tourism Organisation enlists a private sector membership base.For more information, contact:Alisi Lutu, Marketing ManagerSouth Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO)Email: or +679 3304177Media and Communications TeamSouth Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO)Email: or +679 3304177The post Addressing the plastic problem through innovative partnerships appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Blog Op-ed by Christopher Cocker, CEO of the South Pacific Tourism OrganisationThe health of our oceans is under threat from the effects of climate change, overfishing and pollution- specifically plastic pollution.  And it can get worse; a 2016 study The New Plastics Economy: Rethinking the future of plastics stated that there could be more plastics than fish in the ocean (by weight) by 2050.  The study- noted that in 2016 there were 150 million tonnes of plastics in the oceans and by 2050 it could be as high as 850-950 million tonnes.This is a major concern for the tourism sector in the Pacific, because our  pristine environment is one of the offerings that the region banks on and markets to attract visitors to our shores. The mandate of the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) is to market and develop sustainable tourism in the region and to assist our Pacific Island members achieve growth in their national economies via the tourism sector. We also collaborate and undertake innovative partnerships to ensure sustainable tourism development for our members.Last year, SPTO embarked on an innovative approach that could ensure sustainable management and conservation of sharks using both traditional and scientific knowledge.  We were invited by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Pacific Office to collaborate in supporting the My Fiji Shark project. Our role was to market the project to members and stakeholders.  We accepted the invitation as it contributed to one of the Sustainable Development Goals  that SPTO and its  members contribute to achieving – Goal 14- Life below water.My Fiji Shark is an initiative by Beqa Adventure Divers which operates a dive company in Fiji’s first and only marine sanctuary for sharks, the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. It is located in the Beqa Passage, off the coast of Viti Levu.  My Fiji Shark offers divers, interested individuals and organisations an opportunity to adopt a shark from USD50, for that fee the person adopting names the shark, gets a picture of said shark and quarterly activity reports. The proceeds from the project support shark conservation practices and research.SPTO supported My Fiji Shark Project by inviting our partners and the media to pledge their backing; we also adopted a shark and called it Batman. More recently we engaged three Fiji-based social influencers to post and tweet about the project, ocean conservation, protecting sharks and related issues on various social media platforms.SPTO recognized that we could do so much more with UNDP in terms of creating sustainable livelihoods for the traditional owners of Fiji’s Shark Reef Marine Reserve- the people of Galoa and Wainiyabia villages in the province of Serua. The communities currently receive money and other support from the Beqa Adventure Divers for the use of the reserve.Our activity was a Plastic Repurposing workshop funded by UNDP to support community livelihoods through plastic recycling activities that contribute to the conservation and protection of sharks and the entire marine ecosystem. SPTO saw this as an avenue to strengthen community engagement and participation in the tourism industry and contribute to women’s economic empowerment.Last week 15 women from Galoa attended the two day Plastic Repurposing workshop conducted by renowned local artisan, Warwick Marlow. He taught them to convert discarded plastic bottles into jewellery and decor. The bottles were collected from resorts and hotels in Pacific Harbour and also donated by bottled water company- Pleass Beverages.After the workshop the women received tools and a plan is in place for quality checks for the items before they are supplied to outlets identified by SPTO. The artisans also have the choice to sell to tourists who visit Pacific Harbour and their village.While closing the workshop I was reminded of the adage “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” and how it applied in this instance.  Women trained to  convert plastic bottles into art pieces and earn money for their efforts, whilst clearing plastic from the ocean and in particular the Shark Reef Marine Reserve.My Fiji Shark and the plastic repurposing workshop are examples of how the tourism sector can work with development partners, private sector and communities to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals such as Goal 1- No Poverty, Goal 5- Gender Equality, Goal 8- Decent Work & Economic Growth, Goal 12- Responsible Consumption and Production and Goal 14- Life below Water.During the inaugural Oceans Conference in 2017, UN Secretary-General Antonio said oceans are the “the lifeblood of our planet.” Yes, the ocean, Moana is the lifeblood of the Pacific, it is our   common identity without it we lose more than economic opportunities, we lose our cultural identities.It is time that we the people of the Pacific turn the tide and solve the problems we created or inherited.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Sonny Dykes, TCU offensive analyst/consultant: This is to primarily serve as a reminder that an accomplished head coach is a free agent ready to help someone get better on offense immediately.Tony Gibson, West Virginia associate head coach/defensive coordinator/linebackers coach: Gibson stabilized things during a touch-and-go time in Dana Holgorsen’s tenure. Gibson’s defenses play with a physicality other programs would be wise to emulate.Collin Klein, Kansas State quarterbacks coach: A former All-Big 12 quarterback for K-State, Klein began his career as a defensive GA for his alma mater, spent a year coaching quarterbacks for Northern Iowa and then returned to Manhattan in the same capacity. At just 28, Klein will be a name to watch in this business in the years to come.Curtis Luper, TCU co-offensive coordinator/running backs coach: Luper is one of the most accomplished assistants in the game today. He was a member of Mike Gundy’s original staff at Oklahoma State and helped Auburn win a national championship in 2010 before joining TCU’s staff in 2013. (Luper also owns experience as a recruiting coordinator and special teams coordinator.) Luper was a strong candidate for the UTSA head job and will draw interest as a head coach this offseason.Tom Manning, Iowa State offensive coordinator/offensive line coach: In many ways, Manning is the epitome of what this entire series is about. Selected by his peers as the FootballScoop Offensive Line Coach of the Year in 2015, Matt Campbell gave him more responsibility upon moving to Ames and Manning has rewarded that faith with an offense that put up 38 points in a win at Oklahoma.Todd Orlando, Texas defensive coordinator/linebackers coach: There’s no defending the Maryland debacle, but Texas has put together a defense that allows 16.7 points per game (second in the Big 12), 4.99 yards per play (3rd), 2.54 yards per rush (2nd) and 2.57 sacks per game (2nd). Orlando wins the Big 12’s honor as this league’s Brent Venables — both in being the conference’s best defensive coordinator and its assistant most likely to become a head coach.Dennis Simmons, Oklahoma outside receivers coach: Simmons played linebacker at BYU but made his name in coaching embedding himself in the Air Raid coaching school. Simmons worked with Lincoln Riley at Texas Tech and East Carolina — with a stop at Washington State in between — before OU, and his list of all-conference wideouts can match anyone in the game. Guys who can coach the Air Raid are rarely well-kept secrets in this business, but Simmons is.Zac Spavital, Texas Tech linebackers coach/recruiting coordinator: Spavital has thrived professionally as a defensive coach in two of the most difficult conferences to coach defense — the American and the Big 12. The Red Raiders’ share the Big 12 lead with 17 takeaways.Mike Siravo, Baylor linebackers coach/recruiting coordinator: Selected by his peers as the FootballScoop Linebackers Coach of the Year last season, Siravo turned Tyler Matakevich into the best linebacker in college football last season. Siravo has served as Matt Rhule’s recruiting coordinator at Temple and Baylor, where he helped pull together a recruiting class that had all of one commitment upon the new staff’s arrival in Waco. With experience at Temple, Columbia and Boston College, Siravo would be a natural defensive coordinator choice for any school in the Northeast.Mike Yurcich, Oklahoma State offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach: Oklahoma State is top four nationally in total offense, yards per play and scoring offense. Mike Gundy on the other Mike this September: “Mike is as good as anybody that I’ve had. I know a lot of people might debate that or whatever. I have no reason to tell you anything other than he’s really good. He deserves everything he gets. He’s a hard worker. He’s loyal. Dealing with me on offense is not fun, and I’m wrong a lot. He just says ‘Yes, sir’ and goes on down the road, then does what he wants to do a little bit later. I cannot say that he’s not a good (head coaching) candidate for somebody.” What other endorsement do you need?More “Coaches ready to move up” coming throughout the next few days. Believe we missed someone or have someone to recommend? Let us know at 225.229.3429, or via DM @FootballScoop. Our series examining coaches ready to take on more responsibility — at their current school or somewhere else — rolls on to the Big 12.Previous installments: ACC, SEC, Big TenAs always, this list is presented in no particular order and is not comprehensive.Sonny Cumbie, TCU co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach: In a game that so often boils down to the play of the quarterback position, Cumbie has a good a half-decade run as anyone. He turned Trevone Boykin into a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2014 and has now harnessed Kenny Hill’s talents into leading a Big 12 championship-caliber quarterback.last_img read more

Alabama and Oklahoma are BOTH on pace to have the most

first_img— Mike Houck (@mhouckOU) October 29, 2018But these Sooners are not the only team on a record pace.Led by perfect quarterback play by Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama is within arm’s length of Army’s overall scoring record, throwing up 54.1 points per game — and that’s while intentionally going scoreless in three fourth quarters, and notching just a field goal in another.Alabama has scored a total of 433 points in 544 plays, a .80 pace that puts them ahead of Oklahoma’s record pace.And that’s not all. Not even close.The FBS record for yards per play is 8.58, set by a 2006 Hawaii team that gained 7,829 yards in 913 snaps.To date this season, Alabama has gained 4,514 yards in 544 snaps — 8.30 a snap. Oklahoma has gained 4,386 yards in 492 tries — an astounding 8.91 yards a play.For the record, Oklahoma led the nation a year ago at 8.29 yards a play.Those Sooners were powered by Baker Mayfield, the eventual Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 draft pick who set the FBS record in passing efficiency at 198.92. Mayfield set that record by completing 285-of-404 throws (70.5 percent) for 4,627 yards (11.5 per attempt) with 43 touchdowns against six interceptions.That record won’t last a year.Mayfield’s replacement, Kyler Murray, has completed 134-of-183 throws (73.2 percent) for 2,329 yards (12.7 per attempt) with 28 touchdowns against three interceptions — good for a 227.34 rating. Good as that is, Murray is significantly behind Tagovailoa, who has hit 107-of-152 attempts (70.4 percent) for 2,066 yards (13.6 per attempt) with 25 touchdowns and no interceptions. That equates to a 238.85 passer rating.Mayfield was the most efficient quarterback in college football history last year, and Tua has been 20 percent better than him thus far.The NCAA doesn’t track situational stats, but it’s hard to imagine any quarterbacks being better on third down (with at least 30 attempts) than Murray and Tagovailoa have been. Murray is 22-of-34 for 453 yards with five touchdowns, no interceptions and 19 conversions  (a 225.16 rating), while Tagovailoa is 23-of-31 for 445 yards with eight touchdowns, no interceptions and 18 conversions, good for a 279.93 rating.The numbers go on and on and on — all the way to the opponent’s end zone. Both teams can credibly claim to have the best offense in college football’s modern era. The only way to truly settle it would be on the field, maybe in a College Football Playoff game. On Monday, Oklahoma SID Mike Houck sent out an interesting tweet. He found that this year’s Oklahoma offense is on pace to post the highest points per play offense since 1996 — and not by an inch, but by a mile.Through eight games, Oklahoma averages .78 points per play, far ahead of the .69 points per play Florida State posted in 2013. This puts Oklahoma’s pace 13 percent above those 2013 Seminoles. To put that in perspective, 1944 Army holds the overall scoring record at 56 points per game. To break that record by as much as 2018 Oklahoma is breaking 2013 Florida State’s points per play record, a team would have to score 63.3 points per game.You might not think this is unbelievable. But it is. @OU_Football is averaging four-fifths of a point (.78) per offensive play this season. PER PLAY. Since 1996, here are the 3 highest end-of-year figures:.69 by Florida State in 2013.68 by Hawaii in 2006.67 by Florida in 2001 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatixlast_img read more

Representational image Reuters The agents encountered the teens walking southbound from the Canadian province of Alberta into Montana while playing Pokemon Go the Department of Homeland Security’s US Customs and Border Protection agency said in a statement Border Patrol agents quickly determined that the teens were unaware they had crossed the border the statement said "Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokemon Go games that they lost track of where they were" Michael Rappold the agency’s public affairs officer was quoted as saying by ABC News "They crossed the international border inadvertently but agents were able to reunite them with their mother" he said Their mother who was nearby on the Canadian side was contacted by agents while the teens were being detained The teens were apprehended near Sweet Grass Montana which borders the town of Coutts Alberta The incident comes amid a surge in incidents of people getting into trouble while playing Pokemon Go Earlier

loan from your internal sources for capital expenditure If there is a need we will raise a loan worth Rs 2000 crore The civic body had estimated to collect Rs 7740 crore from octroi in 2013-14 Why did it revise this target to Rs 7200 crore Last year the government had intended to abolish octroi completely and we had initiated steps for transition to Local Body Tax (LBT) by October 1 2013 The introduction of LBT met with opposition from traders Also the necessary amendment for LBT in the MMC Act did not take place and now the BMC is the only urban local body in Maharashtra to levy octroi This uncertainty led us to delay undertaking projects such as X-ray scanners and upgrade of octroi nakas that would have upped our octroi receipts The dilly-dallying over the decision led to decreased revenue generation Octroi will remain the prime revenue source in 2014-15 as owing to elections the transition to LBT is not expected this year too Was the Rs 100-crore grant extended to BEST due to political pressure Will the grant be extended in the coming years too As of now the grant has been declared as financial assistance to BEST for 2014-15 so that they do not have to hike fares Your capital expenditure allocation has increased from Rs 9369 crore in the current financial year to Rs 11051 crore in the next even as you have lowered the revised estimates for the current year to Rs 6430 crore How do you ensure that this amount will be spent Budget estimates are planned based on assumption that all planned capital works will receive permission and will commence in that year But that does not always happen In unforeseen situations where the required permissions do not come and there are other issues of rehabilitation of project affected persons the projects do not take off and the capital expenditure remains under-utilised Where will Rs 7700 crore for the master plan for roads come from Will you have to use a portion of your savings in fixed deposits No The money will come from our annual revenue receipts and the BMC is in a financially robust position to undertake this master plan without touching its savings We can be our own financers For all the latest Mumbai

Milind Deora,opposing an apparently repressive US which is determined to protect its political and corporate interests from foreign devils. The first part deals with BJP’s tactical moves as evident in Shah’s itinerary and interactions with different stakeholders. It is quite evident from Amit Shah’s ongoing three-day visit of West Bengal that the battle for 2019 has begun in right earnest Mamata Banerjee’s bastion is of course not the BJP president’s sole destination His 15-day organisational tour spans West Bengal Odisha Gujarat Telangana and Lakshadweep in a bid to spread BJP’s national footprint in places where it is weak and to consolidate its power in areas where it is the incumbent It is not without reason though that Bengal was chosen as Shah’s first pit stop Being the 24×7 politicians that they are Narendra Modi and his trusted general are well aware that in 2019 BJP’s biggest challenge will come from the pressure of expectations not any mythical unified monolithic Opposition It stands to reason therefore that the party must expand footprint and do so rapidly in places where it has the right atmospherics and yet weak structural strength Bengal fits the bill With 42 seats the state can give BJP a nice cushion against erosion of voter support elsewhere It is also a tactical move because geo-politically Bengal presents the right conditions for BJP’s rise and a larger battleground for its nationalist narrative BJP president Amit Shah during his visit to Goranga Nagar area in Rajarhut near Kolkata on Thursday PTI For years the BJP remained a marginal player in the state with a nominal presence among the non-Bengali trader communities in the state’s metropolises and a smattering of support in north Bengal That changed in 2014 The Modi wave saw an unprecedented spurt with BJP cornering 17 percent votes The party however lacked the organisational strength and grassroots muscle to sustain that momentum In subsequent years its vote share even suffered a mild erosion Infighting lack of direction and absence of a home-grown mass leader remained crucial obstacles It is at this juncture that the saffron unit benefited from the massive churn under way in Bengal The germination of this churn lay in 2011 when Mamata finally cracked open the Left’s 34-year-old citadel and stormed to power Her rise to power was a momentous shift in Bengal politics Mamata outdid the Left at its own game and co-opted leftist politics with a degree of fervor that even the Left found difficult to match She took up land acquisition struggle at a time when the Left under Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharya was trying to shake off decades of regressive policies and taking a pro-industry turn Mamata took this opportunity to snatch away Left’s calling card Having co-opted leftist politics she then moved towards replacing Left’s feared organisational structure with that of her own In subsequent years the Left lost its politics structure and even some of its prominent leaders and scores and scores of cadres to an ascendant TMC The Bengal chief minister had nearly annihilated all opposition by the end of her first term She didn’t need to therefore commit the kind of tactical error that ironically paved the way for BJP’s rise In order to secure her Muslim votebank which the 2011 Census pegged at 27 percent (a conservative estimate in a state prone to large-scale infiltration) Mamata took a decisive turn towards identity politics For all its faults the Left Front steered clear of mixing religion with politics during its 34-year-rule Mamata’s move to actively woo the Muslim votebank was perhaps because she didn’t want to leave even the slightest chance for Left to stage a comeback She was well aware that her one-time dalliance with BJP would be held against her by a desperate Left which had few other weapons to fire As the Left increased its rhetoric Mamata started indulging deeper and deeper in politics of religion with Muslim appeasement forming the core of her focus She used state machinery to further of her appeasement politics and in so doing ignored the possibility of Hindu backlash — secure perhaps in the belief that Bengali Hindus will put their cultural identity ahead of their religious identity In her many acts of appeasement — monthly stipend to imams and muezzins curbing Puja rituals in favour of Muslim processions ‘secularising’ ubiquitous Bengali words turning a blind eye to acts of lawlessness and violence committed by one community — a storm was brewing As Catch News points out in a 2016 report: "West Bengal has witnessed a spike in communal violence during Mamata Banerjee’s tenure There have been the infamous Canning and Deganga Riots and communal incidents increased to 106 in 2013 The previous five years witnessed about 12-40 communal incidents" Minhaz Merchant notes in his piece for Daily O "Dhulagarh is only the latest symptom of West Bengal’s descent into a communal cauldron instigated by violent TMC cadres If the thuggishness of the CPI(M) was notionally secular the viciousness of the TMC is unabashedly communal Riots are its preferred way of life" The BJP saw in this appeasement politics a chance for consolidation of Hindu votes and it has since taken bold strides in importing the kind of religious fervour typical in Hindi heartland but unheard of in Bengal The sticks and swords of Ram Navami celebrations and around 150 processions in different parts of the state indicates that a larger consolidation of Hindu votes is no longer a pipe dream The BJP central leadership has taken note Shah’s visit is a vital cog in this design The party knows that right at this moment it cannot compete with the TMC in terms of organisational strength people-to-people connect or booth-level mobilisation Shah’s effort during this trip therefore has been three-pronged He has tried to pitch Modi’s development model as an alternative to Mamata’s politics pointing out how the TMC government has become involved in several corruption scandals He has attempted to firm up BJP’s vertical structures in areas where it has some sort of presence — this explains why he began his trip in Naxalbari in north Bengal He has also tried to make it a trip of symbolism challenging the might of Mamata government by visiting her backyard interacting with people in her own constituency The Naxalbari start requires a bit of explanation The hotbed of armed rebellion in late 1960s that soon spread to other parts of the country these areas in north Bengal have provided pockets of support for the BJP It also carries a lot of symbolism The BJP as the recent Kanthi Dakshin bypoll results showed is growing at a fast clip but almost entirely at the expense of the Left What better way to project this ideological shift than to start a tour in the place from where ultra-Left radicalism took off Shah’s visit in Naxalbari isn’t just symbolic It also carries a lot of political sense North Bengal has seen many instances of cattle smuggling into Bangladesh The PTI reports that BSF jawans on Tuesday stumbled on to an 80-metre-long tunnel being dug through a tea garden by suspected cattle smugglers near the Chopra-Fatehpur border outpost The tunnel says the report was found in north Bengal adjacent to Kisanganj The Union Ministry of Home Affairs in a recent affidavit has submitted before the Supreme Court that cattle smuggling along the Indo-Bangladesh border is continuing at an alarming pace According to a report in Live Law a total of 178801 cattle were seized near the border between January and December 2016 of which 128440 (761 percent) were from West Bengal alone According to the MHA affidavit violent encounters led to 35 lives being lost in last three years including five BSF personnel while 302 BSF personnel have been injured Naxalbari where local population has been facing threats from cattle smugglers gives BJP the platform to consolidate its base Shah’s visit in north Bengal also included an outreach to representatives of the middle class in Siliguri where he skillfully introduced the topic of Bengal’s lack of industry and deteriorating law and order As TheEconomic Times notes in a report "Law and order has reached its bottom in Bengal In Bengal where there used to be the reverberation of Rabindra Sangeet of Nobel Prize winner poet Rabindra Nath Tagore now only explosion of bombs are there" he was quoted to have said Days before Shah made the comment about Bengal’s ‘bomb industry’ a report in The Indian Express points out that at least seven people were killed in an explosion at Darbarpur village in Birbhum’s Labhpur on Friday during the manufacturing of crude bombs In the unique vortex of Bengal politics BJP is getting a lot of help from its toughest adversary The second part will deal with TMC and Mamata Banerjee’s counter moves to checkmate BJP’s rise By: AP | Cleveland | Published: October 3 2017 9:36 am Kevin Love has been the subject of trade speculation for three years in Cleveland Top News Cavaliers All-Star Kevin Love is being moved after all – from forward to center Love who has been the subject of trade speculation for three years in Cleveland will be the club’s new starting center coach Tyronn Lue announced Monday night after the team played an intra-squad scrimmage at Quicken Loans Arena Lue has experimented with Love at center during training camp and believes the new-look lineup will create matchup problems for opposing centers as well as open the floor for LeBron James Derrick Rose and others “He’s a great passer” Lue said of Love “Fives (centers) have to get out and try to guard him on the pick and roll with LeBron and D-Rose and those guys making plays so it’s going to be tough for those guys We liked it” Center Tristan Thompson will come off the bench and newly acquired forward Jae Crowder will take Love’s former spot Lue said Crowder acquired this summer in the Kyrie Irving trade is a strong defender Lue said he spoke to Thompson about the switch and “it was great” Thompson started all 78 games at center for Cleveland last season In 2016 he made just 33 starts and the Cavs went on to win the NBA title “I told him I’m one guy you don’t have to worry about” Thompson said “I’m a team-first guy I understand that at the end of the day it’s about winning and if you win we all look good _ whether you come off the bench or you start And it’s not about who starts the game it’s about who is in the game in the fourth and who is finishing it So I’m not worried The last time I came off the bench if history repeats itself we had a parade in June So I’ll take it “I’m going to go for Sixth Man of the Year put myself in position to do that” Lue has more options this season after Cleveland’s roster was overhauled with Irving being traded to Boston and the additions of Rose Crowder Dwyane Wade Isaiah Thomas and Jeff Green Wade will likely be Cleveland’s backup point guard until Thomas recovers from a hip injury but Lue said he hasn’t committed to that idea just yet As for Crowder Lue said his defensive presence will free up James “With Jae starting at the four LeBron’s able to roam freely on the defensive end” Lue said “Jae will take the toughest matchup between the 3s and the 4s and LeBron will be able to roam and kind of quarterback our defense Being that back line defense talking communicating and also being able to pick off passes when guys are throwing bad passes I like LeBron in that role because he’s great at being the help guy being in the right spots at the right places so I think it will be good for us” For now James is sidelined with a sprained left ankle sustained last week in practice Lue said the three-time champion will not play in Wednesday night’s exhibition opener against Atlanta James’ injury is not believed to be serious and the Cavs will make sure he’s full healed before he plays Lue said he expects James on the court at some point in the preseason Cleveland opens the regular season on Oct 17 against Irving and the Celtics For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by A Kameshwari | New Delhi | Published: November 29 2016 6:06 pm Bareilly Ki Barfi stars
