About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd teenager Angel Gomes: Old Trafford deafened me!by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United teenager Angel Gomes says he was deafened by the Old Trafford crowd during Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town.Gomes, 18, made his third appearance for the club when he replaced Juan Mata in the 80th minute.There could be more game time under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has brought a sense of optimism to the club, which Gomes says was audible.”Yes, it’s always nice to come on, especially when you are a young lad, following in the footsteps of the other players who are progressing and doing well,” Gomes told MUTV. “To come on and hear the crowd cheering you on was a great feeling for me.”My ears actually blocked! I couldn’t really hear, but, as soon as I got on, I felt at ease. The players helped me, they spoke to me and gave me instructions and I was fine from then on.”

Finance and Public Service Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Government is committed to implementing a time-bound action plan to stop the predatory charges and fees by financial institutions. Story Highlights Finance and Public Service Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Government is committed to implementing a time-bound action plan to stop the predatory charges and fees by financial institutions.He said the plan will include a review of the Banking Services Act and entrenchment of the Bank of Jamaica Code of Conduct for deposit-taking institutions, which was introduced in September 2017.The measures will also entail the formal establishment of a financial consumer protection entity, either as a separate agency or as a division of the Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC).Minister Shaw was opening the 2018/2019 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on March 8 under the theme: ‘Stability, Growth and Prosperity – Our Goal, Our Responsibility.’Meanwhile, he informed that during 2017/2018, Jamaica made significant progress in countering the threat of international correspondent banks cutting ties with local financial institutions.Steps were taken to reduce the risk of being associated with transactions that are inconsistent with anti-money laundering/ combating the financing of terrorism.The success of the measures, Minister Shaw said, were “reflected in the low incidence of reduced access to correspondent banking services. These advances are important, but we should not lose sight of the need to remain vigilant in this regard.” The success of the measures, Minister Shaw said, were “reflected in the low incidence of reduced access to correspondent banking services.

According to the mayor’s motion, it would be at the Foundation’s discretion to choose which of the five days each week the museum would be open. The motion passed after a brief discussion.McPherson’s motion also included that the issue of what to do about the Museum FOundation’s funding woes be brought forth to a committee meeting with the intention of drafting a referendum question. “This will take us through the summer, until we get this hopefully taken to a referendum — find out what the people of Tumbler Ridge want,” said McPherson. TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. — The District of Tumbler Ridge is offering a $50,000 grant to the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation so that it can reopen its doors for the summer tourist season, after the museum closed its doors at the end of March. The Museum Foundation was unsuccessful in its application for a $200,000 grant from the District earlier this year, and announced shortly thereafter that it was closing its doors and laying off staff.Tumbler Ridge mayor Don McPherson made the funding motion at the District council meeting on Monday evening so that the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery could open five days a week from June 1st to October 1st. McPherson said that he came up with the $50,000 amount from looking at the Foundation’s budget for the year and tallying up staffing and operating costs.
The Ministry said that the 20 IRCP projects represent $743 million in private sector capital spending and are expected to create more than 1,742 jobs in B.C. Of those projects, five use BC Hydro electricity, resulting in fewer GHG emissions.The seven CIRCP projects saw $78 million in industry spending that will result in an estimated reduction of 0.6 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.The Province said that companies are required to fully fund and complete an approved project before they can apply to recover up to 50 percent of the project’s cost in royalty deductions. VICTORIA, B.C. – The provincial government says that 27 oil and gas projects in B.C. have been awarded a cumulative total of $139.3 million in royalty credits.In a press release issued back on September 4th, the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources said that $120 million of the royalty deductions were awarded for 20 new projects under the Infrastructure Royalty Credit Program, while a further $19.3 million in deductions were given out for seven new projects under the Clean Infrastructure Royalty Credit Program.The IRC Program facilitates new pipelines and all-season road projects, creating jobs for service-sector employees and supporting upstream-development prospects, while the CIRC Program supports investments in clean technology that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from specific sources linked to the exploration and production of B.C.’s oil and gas resources.
Dubai: India opener Smriti Mandhana broke into the top three of the ICC Womens Twenty20 International batting rankings, released on Sunday. Mandhana was India’s highest scorer, with 72 runs in three matches, in what was a dismal series for the home team as they suffered a 3-0 sweep by England in Guwahati. Mandhana took the place of West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin who moved up a spot to second place displacing Mandhana’s India team-mate Jemimah Rodrigues. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherRodrigues totalled just 15 runs in the three-match series and took a tumble to sixth position. New Zealand’s Suzie Bates continued to hold the top spot, with 765 points, extending the gap between her and second-placed Dottin to 38 points. The rest of the top-five remained unchanged, with Australia captain Meg Lanning retaining the fourth position with 695 points, followed by Stafanie Taylor with just one point less. India captain Harmanpreet Kaur who missed the England series with ankle injury went down two spots to No.9, allowing New Zealand all-rounder Sophie Devine to climb to No. 7, followed by Australia wicket-keeper Beth Mooney. Mooney’s team-mate Alyssa Healy retained her position to round off the top ten.

Lauren Winfield, however, moved up eight places to No. 45. India’s Deepti Sharma moved up five places to the 71st position. But the biggest mover was England’s Sophia Dunkley, who barged into the top 100 by moving 16 places to 86th position. India’s Pooja Vastrakar went out of the top 100, tumbling 11 places to 103. There were significant changes among bowlers too. While Megan Schutt and Poonam Yadav the top two in the bowlers’ charts, Ellyse Perry, the Australia all-rounder, moved up one spot to No. 3, followed by New Zealand’s Leigh Kasperek, who was fourth after jumping two places. The biggest mover, however, was Radha Yadav. She moved up five positions and is now No. 5 in the bowlers rankings, level with South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail. However, that meant Anya Shrubsole slid two places to No. 7. Her team-mate Sophie Ecclestone also took a massive tumble, falling seven places to No. 10. Deepti Sharma was another to have a poor time of it against England, and she fell ten places to No. 24 after the latest update. However, Katherine Brunt rose 12 places and is now No. 35. The all-rounders charts were largely unchanged — Dottin still leads the charts, and Bangladesh’s Salma Khatun rounds off the top ten. However, Hayley Matthews has displaced Natalie Sciver at No. 6.
Binge drinking in adolescence, even if discontinued, may increase the risk for anxiety later in life, according to a study led by an Indian origin scientist. “Binge drinking early in life modifies the brain and changes connectivity in the brain, especially in the amygdala, which is involved in emotional regulation and anxiety, in ways we don’t totally understand yet,” said a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the US, and lead author of the study. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”But what we do know is that epigenetic changes are lasting, and increase susceptibility to psychological issues later in life, even if drinking that took place early in life is stopped,” he said in a statement. “Epigenetics” refers to chemical changes to DNA, RNA, or specific proteins associated with chromosomes that change the activity of genes without changing the genes themselves, according to the study published in the journal Biological Psychiatry. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardEpigenetic alterations are required for the normal development of the brain, but they can also be modified in response to environmental or even social factors, such as alcohol and stress. These kinds of epigenetic alterations have been linked to changes in behaviour and disease, researchers said. Adolescent rats were exposed to ethanol (a type of alcohol) for two days on and two days off or to the same protocol using saline for 14 days. All rats underwent an assessment for anxiety. The researchers exposed adolescent rats to a regimen designed to mimic binge drinking. Those rats exhibited anxious behaviour later in life, even if the binge drinking regimen stopped in late adolescence and the rats were allowed to mature to adulthood without any further exposure to alcohol. Rats with less Arc also had about 40 per cent fewer neuronal connections in the amygdala compared with rats that were not exposed to alcohol.

Roger Espinoza and Konrad Warzycha knew they’d be competing with, and against, high-profile athletes when they left the Ohio State men’s soccer team to pursue Major League Soccer careers. But, teaming with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco never crossed their minds. Ochocinco, a six-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and avid soccer fan, recently concluded a four-day trial with MLS club Sporting Kansas City, which began March 23. Espinoza, a defender on Sporting KC’s squad, said he enjoyed training with the NFL superstar. “I spoke to (Ochocinco) a little bit, and he was happy to be here,” Espinoza said. “He’s a world-class athlete.” Espinoza, who helped to lead OSU to the 2007 NCAA College Cup championship game his senior season, said he expected Ochocinco’s trial with Sporting KC to be a “media thing.” Ochocinco’s attitude convinced Espinoza otherwise. “He’s not just here for media stuff,” Espinoza said. “He actually wanted to be here. He talks to a lot of the guys. He wants to play. … He knows a little bit about soccer.” Warzycha, a rookie midfielder on Sporting KC’s roster, never got a chance to meet or train with Ochocinco. After completing his final season as a Buckeye in November 2010 and signing a contract with Sporting KC on March 3, knee surgery forced Warzycha to return to Columbus for rehab. Warzycha said that missing the opportunity to meet Ochocinco was “definitely a disappointment.” “When I heard (Ochocinco) was coming,” Warzycha said, “I thought maybe I could do my rehab back in Kansas City.” To find out whether Ochocinco was offered an MLS contract, check out Monday’s edition of The Lantern.
Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing Editor for ContentBLOOMINGTON, Ind. — As memorable as a season the Ohio State men’s basketball team has had, this one game won’t be soon forgotten.Indiana forward Juwan Morgan made a layup against the potential Big Ten Player of the Year, forward Keita Bates-Diop, with 7.4 seconds left in double overtime, seemingly ending Ohio State’s chances of winning a share of the Big Ten regular-season championship.C.J. Jackson had something to say about that.Taking the ball from the opposite baseline, the junior guard drove down the court and pulled up from 24 feet, released a clean look and hit nothing but net to give Ohio State (24-7, 15-3 Big Ten) an 80-78 lead with 1.6 seconds remaining in overtime to silence the packed crimson-and-cream crowd inside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.The last desperation attempt from the Hoosiers (16-14, 9-9 Big Ten) fell well short and the No. 16 Buckeyes escaped with a victory in the regular-season finale to preserve their chance at a share of the Big Ten regular-season championship.“It’s been an unbelievable way to cap an unbelievable regular season,” head coach Chris Holtmann said.Jackson finished the game with 13 points. Bates-Diop had 24 points with 14 rebounds and redshirt senior guard Kam Williams scored 15. Senior Jae’Sean Tate and freshman Kaleb Wesson also were in double figures.Morgan had a team-high 18 points for Indiana. Senior guard Robert Johnson and freshman forward Justin Smith had 17 and 16, respectively.It was only fitting that Ohio State’s improbable season and prospects of winning a share of the Big Ten regular-season championship would come down to an overtime game in one of college basketball’s most historic venues against one of its most historic programs.It was ludicrous to think it would come down to two.There were a total of 16 lead changes and 14 ties, including nine lead changes in the final overtime that ended with Jackson shot to seal Ohio State’s first win at Indiana in five years.“We knew they weren’t going to go away,” Jackson said. “Senior Night, home night, they were going to have a lot of energy. We just had to match it.”In the past two road games, Ohio State struggled to match the energy of the opponent, which resulted in double-digit losses. Now, the Buckeyes were much better on the glass than they were against Penn State and Michigan last week, outrebounding Indiana 41-35, but to continually respond bucket after bucket in multiple do-or-die situations left Holtmann and the team with an added confidence heading into postseason play.“This team does have a grit to it that is necessary in a game like this, particularly on the road,” Holtmann said. “I think at the end of the day, that’s what you’re trying to preach from Day 1 and that’s what you hope to have guys that have that to them. To have that stuff inside them that we all look at and can identify as resiliency and grit and able to stay with it and not let one play affect the other. And they did that.”Bates-Diop scored 20-plus points for the first time since he scored a career-high 35 against Illinois on Feb. 4. He shot 9-of-24 from the field, but came away with some needed baskets in the final minutes of regulation.“I’ve been struggling the last few games, but tonight I got back into a rhythm,” he said.Ohio State shot 48 percent from the field and recorded 16 assists on 33 made field goals.With the win, Ohio State remains one game behind Michigan State for first place in the Big Ten. The Spartans have already clinched at least a share of the conference title and can win it outright with a win at Wisconsin on Sunday. If the Spartans lose, Ohio State will earn a share of the title and be the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament next week.Up NextOhio State will play Friday in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament in New York. Its opponent will be determined when the conference season officially ends Sunday.

F+W Media has morphed a joint venture with Hoffman Media into a full-on acquisition, buying Hoffman’s Martha Pullen Company, which serves the sewing and craft markets. Key to the deal was Martha Pullen’s e-commerce and fulfillment operations.Transaction terms were not released, and while F+W certainly expands its footprint in the sewing market—the company serves a variety of enthusiast verticals—the deal gives F+W direct ownership of hard-good inventory and fulfillment. Up to now, F+W had been facilitating inventory and fulfillment through third-party partnerships.”Hard goods are defined as things like patterns, wool, fabrics, buttons and beads,” F+W CEO David Nussbaum tells FOLIO:. “We had only limited experience with these hard goods before, but we’re now moving a little more aggressively into that type of distribution.” F+W counts e-commerce as a major revenue stream, the company has made a concerted effort to move away from a reliance on advertising. At the recent Dealmakers Summit, hosted by media bankers DeSilva + Phillips, Nussbaum said, “Three years ago I put a call out to the team to become the Amazon of passion markets.”Nussbaum says e-commerce-related revenues jumped 75 percent in 2011 and expects similar growth in 2012. The relationship between Hoffman and F+W goes back to May 2011 when the two companies partnered in a joint e-commerce venture creating a Martha Pullen online store. According to the companies, year over year sales grew more than 40 percent, and sales are now trending 25 percent over prior year sales. Since the partnership, store visits have increased 96 percent.Those metrics opened the door to discussions of an acquisition, one that Hoffman EVP and COO Eric Hoffman says will allow his company to focus on its core food and women’s lifestyle markets. Brands at Hoffman include Cooking With Paula Deen and Southern Lady.Sale proceeds, says Hoffman, will be used for share buybacks and to fund organic growth plans. Also included in the deal are Sew Beautiful magazine, 10 consumer and trade events, relate websites, DVDs, books, sewing pattern subscription programs and the “Martha’s Sewing Room” TV show.
Vogel declined to offer specifics on deal terms, but says, “We all think it was a fair price for a highly profitable asset and we intend to ratchet up our return on investment by launching significant digital assets by January 2016.” The 12-year-old SagaCity first launched Portland Monthly in 2003 and has since bought or launched its way across the country. The company also has titles in Seattle, Houston, Aspen, Vail and Park City. Gulfshore group publisher Kelley Lavin, editorial director Pam Daniel and creative director Gigi Ortwein will remain on board after the deal. Vogel says that the rest of the employees will also stay and more positions will be added to the digital team. “We are also giving raises to about one-third of the staff to bring them to our Sagacity levels,” she adds. In 2012, Denton then sold his Gulfshore titles, including Gulfshore Life, Gulfshore Business and annual titles Gulfshore Life at Home and Forever Young, to Hadley Capital-backed Open Sky Media. Denton then purchased Venice Magazine in mid-2014. Gulfshore Media has been through a couple of acquisitions in the last 11 years. Company founder Dan Denton sold the titles to CurtCo in 2004 and then bought them back six years later. Terms of the deal were not released, but SagaCity will focus on expanding the digital platform for the Sarasota brands. Investments in responsive design, database technology, mobile and social media that the company has already made with its existing brands will be carried over to the Sarastota portfolio, Nicole Vogel, SagaCity’s president, tells Folio:. SagaCity Media, a city and regional publisher based in Portland, Oregon, is set to announce today that it’s acquired the Sarasota magazine brands from Gulfshore Media. Included in the deal are the flagship Sarasota Magazine, Biz (941), SEE Sarasota, Sarasota Health and Venice Magazine. The Sarasota deal marks the company’s second sizeable acquisition to date and brings the total title count to 82, says Vogel, which includes a significant number of custom publications.

Dry skin occurs throughout the year, however, for many Blacks, it can become increasingly uncomfortable during winter months. Cold temperatures, low humidity, and strong, harsh winds, according to dermatologists, deplete the skin of its natural lipid layer, which would normally help keep the skin from drying out. Black skin, as a result, can become very flaky, dry, and ashy in the winter.“Years ago, Black mothers might use anything from olive oil or cooking grease – later petroleum jelly – to keep skin soft and keep it from cracking, especially if working outdoors,” Rockville dermatologist Candice Drummond told the AFRO. “Some of us still apply the Vaseline, but there are a host of dietary and topical measure to keep the ash away.”To guard against dry skin and lips, Drummond recommends limiting baths or showers to 4-5 minutes, using lukewarm water and using non-drying, mild soap for cleansing. Long showers and baths actually strip the skin of its natural oils. “Many of us like using perfumed soaps or gels, which smell great, but do a fair job of drying out the skin in winter. Even mild soaps can have drying effects, so limit soap use to areas where you are prone to perspire or where dirt readily accumulates (face, hands, feet, underarms and groin area).”Avoid products with alcohol or that can be drying and irritating to the skin like harsh scrubs.Drummond also offered tips of daily moisturizing, being careful, again to avoid heavily perfumed lotions. “Look for lotions that contain humectants (glycerin, hyaluronic acid and urea). When you come out of the shower or bath, immediately apply the moisturizer to your damp skin. This will help to seal the moisture in and provide a protective barrier from the harsh winter environment,” Drummond said.Additionally, Dermatology News offered: Moisturizing the air at home and the office with a humidifier to keep the heating systems from inadvertently drying skin as they heat the area. A low-cost alternative to humidifiers are plants. When watered, plants help diffuse moisture throughout the room. Drummond added that many Black families keep a sauce pan with water in it on top of heating convectors to the same end.Avoid wool clothing next to your skin. Wool often irritates skin, making it itchy in the winter. Instead, wear cotton camisoles, undershirts, or long underwear underneath any wool clothing. Finally, keeping the body well hydrated by drinking ample amounts of water each day is critical to fighting against both dehydration and ash.If suffering from dry, itchy skin in spite of following these skin care tips, Drummond recommends seeing a dermatologist to make sure the condition is not from allergies or a skin condition like psoriasis or eczema.

State Rep. Holly Hughes, R-Montague, has sent letters to the chairmen of the House Committee on Appropriations and Appropriations Subcommittee on Military and Veterans Affairs seeking $6 million to provide more robust oversight of the state’s two veterans care facilities.Her request comes following three joint-committee meetings involving the House Committee on Oversight and Ethics and House Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs, to review the mid-February report by the State Auditor General’s office regarding resident care and conditions at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.“One idea that came up to address a perceived lack of oversight of the homes by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs was to instead have the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) provide oversight,” wrote Rep. Hughes in her letter to state Rep. Al Pscholka, chair of the Committee on Appropriations, and state Rep. Larry Inman, chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Military and Veterans Affairs. “My understanding, however, is that there are currently some physical limitations with each of the homes that must be addressed in order for them to be certified by CMS. Much of the $6 million that I am recommending would be used to make the necessary modifications. The additional funding would allow the new leadership team at the homes to hire additional staff on a short-term basis to address the immediate issues brought forth by the audit.”During the most recent committee hearing, Rep. Hughes, vice-chair of the House Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs, implored her fellow committee members to support more funding for veterans.“We can, and we must, do better for our veteran heroes at the state level,” Rep.
