OnlineUndoPhotoStickHow To Back Up All Your Old Photos In SecondsPhotoStickUndoThe 2017 season marked the first stage of a fundamental restructuring of the IAAF Diamond League which adopted a championship-style model with the finalists competing for a prize pool of $3.2 million.A total of 282 million viewers from across 161 countries worldwide switched on during the season to watch the world’s top athletes earn points in the first 12 IAAF Diamond League meetings to qualify for two final meetings, where $100,000 was at stake in each of the 32 Diamond disciplines, including $50,000 for each winner.Emphasising the Diamond League’s global credentials, 805 athletes from 86 countries took part in the 2017 season, with 39 countries producing winners across the 14-meeting series.When the changes were announced in December 2016, IAAF President Sebastian Coe confirmed that “it is important to assess the Diamond League’s impact and build for the future. These decisions are the first step to growing the attractiveness of the series.”Today Coe reconfirmed the IAAF’s commitment to the series, a future based upon a programme of radical change aligned to wider reform across the IAAF’s Competition programme. “Right across the sport there is a commitment to change. We need to give our athletes a compelling reason to compete and our fans a compelling reason to come back to our sport week in and week out. This is a revolution for us and it means facing up to the reality of how people – not just young people – are and want to consume our sport.”This is a consultative process and currently there are four important pillars of work underway. The first is the general overhaul of the global calendar; second is the introduction of an IAAF World Rankings system; third is a comprehensive review of the entire Diamond League structure; and fourth, going to market for a new title sponsor.The goal is to create a future IAAF Diamond League which grows the fan base, fits into a comprehensive annual calendar, supports all meetings, and delivers a prosperous circuit, challenging the status quo of a one-day meeting format which has broadly remained unchanged since the early 1960s.“Across all four, nothing is off the table,” confirmed Coe. “I have asked our teams to be open, creative and brave. We are in the entertainment business and we have to look at it in that way. Our sport is strong and we have had a phenomenal year of great performances and exceptional audiences in Uganda, The Bahamas, Kenya and across the Diamond League series, culminating in the amazing World Championships in London in August. But all sports are fighting for fans and thinking of new and different ways to present their sport or alter their core concepts and formats. We need to do the same.”The timeline is to deliver a new structure – which would be implemented in 2020 – in the first quarter of 2018.

Treviso and Aironi flying the flag

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Benetton “We played them in the league and just lost out by seven points but they scored an interception and before that we were right in the game.“It is a game we have targeted and, as it is our first in the Heineken Cup, it is very important to us. We know that they will come at us strong and they will be looking for a good win at home, but hopefully we can show them what we can do.”“The season is very long and the intensity is going to take its toll. We have had three hard games on the road, so we are being careful and resting our squad well.“Our squad is small and we need to look after all of our guys and target games we believe we can get something from and focus on those.“We have got about 11 players out injured but we are looking to get some of those back in time for Europe and that will increase competition for places, which is really healthy.“When you’re used to playing in the Super 10, the Italian domestic league, and then have to step up into Europe like Italian teams have done in the past, it is a culture shock.“It takes time to adapt your game and be ready for the difference in levels, but playing at a similar pace in the Celtic League means we can try and maintain our performances and take them into the Heineken Cup. Marius Goosen – Benetton TrevisoMarius Goosen is Benetton Treviso’s record points scorer – but now the former outside half is hoping to make his point as the assistant coach of the Italian club embarking on their 14th season in the Heineken Cup.Goosen scored 227 tournament points in 34 appearances, starting all six of last season’s Pool matches before hanging up his boots and joining head coach Franco Smith on the coaching staff.“We always look forward to playing in the Heineken Cup, it is a good chance for us to play and test ourselves against the best,” he said.“The Heineken Cup is always the highest level and we are going to have to be at our best. We are in a strong group, starting with Leicester Tigers, who have the won the competition a couple of times, so we know the challenges ahead.“We have had some good crowds and good atmosphere at home in the league so the aim is to replicate that for the Leicester match.“Hopefully we will benefit from playing in the Celtic League and, although it is still early days, we want to carry the intensity and experience from that to give us a good chance.”While Benetton Treviso are Heineken Cup stalwarts – the clash with the 2001 and 2002 champions will be their 73 match – fellow Italian franchise Aironi Rugby will be taking their bow when they travel to Ravenhill to play 1999 champions Ulster Rugby.The Viadana-based side also entered the Celtic League for the first time this season and are targeting their trip to Ireland to get their European campaign off to the best of starts.“We have got Ulster first up and we know them pretty well already,” said captain Quintin Geldenhuys. “As always, we are going to take the competition game by game, but this year we know we will have more experience.“It is vital to start well so we need to target the opening rounds and try and get a win in early.”last_img read more

It advises on the organization and structures of the Anglican Communion, and seeks to develop common policies with respect to the world mission of the church, including ecumenical matters.Gracious and Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your love for the whole world in the death, resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ. We bless You for Your Church Universal called to represent You to the world, and our Communion as a part of that Church. We praise You for the unity You give to the Church, and confess our faults that have created disunity. As we prepare for ACC-16 in Lusaka, we ask You O Lord that all who will represent their Provinces may be blessed with good health, holy wisdom and loving and healing words.We give thanks and pray for Archbishop Albert Chama, the Bishops and all our other brothers and sisters in the Province of Central Africa, that You will provide for all their needs as they prepare to host this meeting. We pray for the Anglican Communion Office staff in their preparations. When we encounter differences and difficulties, may Your Holy Spirit take pre-eminence and over-rule to Your glory and honour. So may all that we think, say and do, echo our Lord’s prayer that Your will be done on earth as in heaven.

Brian O’Driscoll spear tackled in 2005

first_imgMonday Jun 25, 2007 Brian O’Driscoll spear tackled in 2005 In 2005 the British and Irish Lions Rugby union team toured New Zealand for the first time since 1993, suffering a 3-0 whitewash at the hands of the New Zealand All Blacks. For the Lions, having toured Australia in 2001 and South Africa in 1997, it was the first time for 22 years they lost every test match on tour. The squad wasn’t helped, of course, by losing their world-class captain less than a minute into the first Test match. It was highly controversial at the time, with accusations being fired back and forth. The guilty party were Tana Umaga & Kevin Mealamu. Umaga being involved particularly shocked people seeing as he was known to be one of the better behaved players in the game. The issue resurfaced violently, after someone taping the game from the stands anonymously submitted controversial footage that the stadium’s cameras didn’t pick up.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house takes advantage of the plot’s merits, stitching an almost 210 o panoramic view of the Athenian basin that spans from Mt. Penteli to the island of Aegina. The potential for outstanding views called for an upside-down layout of the building – playfully nicknaming it as the “House On Top” project. All areas that did not programmatically call for extended outside views formed a pedestal on top of which is located the living room block, reaching the maximum permitted height and being accessed via the stairs (or the intentionally understated elevator). A project within the project, the residence’s staircase is conceived as the main theme of the house’s spatial structure. With a triple storey high internal space, featuring an exposed concrete side wall and a dramatic, rounded, black matte metal staircase almost hovering in the void, it ensures that the connection between the ground floor entrance and the second floor living room will never be missed. The living room area itself is rather simple in its layout, unified with the dining area and the semi -open plan kitchen. A 14m wide, floor to ceiling glass facade, permits the unification of the interior with the Phaestos stone finished pool deck outside, allowing full access to the breathtaking view and the rooftop pool from every spot in the living room and the kitchen. Abiding to the strict planning regulations, the deck has no pergolas or other permanent structures on it, its shading obtained by large retractable tents housed in the massive lintel above the glazed facade.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisAccording to the owners’  brief for the interior, every room has its own character, yet remains consistent to a tactile material palette on a par with the overall concept of the house. Off-white plaster, bleached oak surfaces, exposed concrete and black overtones resulted in a slightly desaturated palette, reflecting the natural light during the day and the integrated architectural lighting at night. This restrained material palette originates from an interior design approach that is willfully limited to a background role, acknowledging the fact that in the end of the day it is the owner’s life that will unfold in the house. Far from implying any architectural shortage, this design  approach was proved in action, since the selection of furniture by the owners fitted in the interior  without undermining the overall architectural values of the residence.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!PlantSave this picture!© George MessaritakisEpitomizing the overall concept, the facade of the residence is the actual communicator of its architecture. Despite the fact that it is a single elevation building, “House On Top” stands out and in the same time blends in the city, in a way that shows respect to the neighborhood and enhances its appeal. Considering Athens chaotic urban environment this was no easy feat to achieve.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisProject gallerySee allShow lessCityförster to Lead Design of New Beijing Government DistrictArchitecture NewsTurncoats NYC Debate: “Buildings Don’t Matter”Panel Discussion Share Projects Architects: ISV Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project House on Top / ISV Architects Year:  House on Top / ISV ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse on Top / ISV Architects Save this picture!© George Messaritakis+ 37 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870027/house-on-top-isv-architects Clipboard Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870027/house-on-top-isv-architects Clipboard “COPY” Greece CopyAbout this officeISV ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAthinaGreecePublished on June 12, 2017Cite: “House on Top / ISV Architects” 12 Jun 2017.

DC Attorney Promoting Indiana Corn and Soybean Membership

first_imgHome News Feed DC Attorney Promoting Indiana Corn and Soybean Membership Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 20, 2013 SHARE DC Attorney Promoting Indiana Corn and Soybean Membership Facebook Twitter SHARE Attorney pushes corn-bean membershipIndiana corn and soybean farmers are being encouraged to join the state’s two membership and policy organizations with a special membership push this month, but Washington D.C. lawyer Gary Baise is also promoting the idea. He spoke at this month’s update meetings hosted by Indiana Soybean Alliance Membership & Policy Committee and the Indiana Corn Growers Association and Baise said membership is much more important now than in the past.“My dad was never a joiner of these organizations but in the 50’s and 60’s you didn’t have the challenges and the threats that you now have facing agriculture, and particularly in the Midwest.”A principal attorney at OFW Law, he says the threats come from groups opposed to farmers growing corn and soybeans.“Many people have heard about Food, Inc. Michael Pollan and that group. They’re really opposed to our growing corn, feeding it to animals and producing the food. Now my dad never faced that kind of threat. Why I am so strongly supportive of individual farmers becoming members of the policy arm of Indiana Soybean and Indiana Corn is they lobby in the state legislature. They can go to the state regulatory agency. They can with the national organization to the federal regulatory agencies to help protect our interests against people who are out literally to do us harm.”And Baise minces no words when talking about threats from the Environmental Protection Agency, the agency he helped form and serve as Chief of Staff to the first U.S. EPA Administrator, Bill Ruckelshaus.“Well the people who run EPA today are anti-agriculture by and large. If you have people such as the prior administrator, Lisa Jackson who was a chemist as I recall from the state of New Jersey, and Miss Jackson basically it seemed to me had a disdain for agriculture. The new administrator, Miss McCarthy, comes from Massachusetts. People in this room have forgotten more about agriculture than she knows.”He adds there is a mindset at EPA that agriculture is the biggest polluter left in the country not under the control of the agency. So Baise says farmers should give the state and national farm policy groups the resources they need for lobbying. Indiana corn and soybean are offering a joint membership for just $120 and the link for details is here.

Letter to Skype about confidentiality concerns

first_img Reporters Without Borders is one of the signatories of an open letter to Skype, a US company now owned by Microsoft, urging it to be more transparent about the confidentiality of Skype conversations and about its data protection and retention policies.Signed by many journalists, activists and NGOs, the text of the letter was released today. It is unfortunate that these users, and those who advise them on best security practices, work in the face of persistently unclear and confusing statements about the confidentiality of Skype conversations, and in particular the access that governments and other third parties have to Skype user data and communications. Organisation January 24, 2013 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Letter to Skype about confidentiality concerns News Individuals We understand that the transition of ownership to Microsoft, and the corresponding shifts in jurisdiction and management, may have made some questions of lawful access, user data collection, and the degree of security of Skype communications temporarily difficult to authoritatively answer. However, we believe that from the time of the original announcement of a merger in October 2011, and on the eve of Microsoft’s integration of Skype into many of its key software and services, the time has come for Microsoft to publicly document Skype’s security and privacy practices. Sincerely, The Undersigned Collin D. Anderson, Carolyn Anhalt, Andrew Auernheimer, Paul Bernal, PhD, Luther Blissett, Griffin Boyce, Duncan Campbell, Luke De Carli, Samuel Carlisle, Brendan O’Connor, Mike Doherty, Sarah A.

Werren, Philipp Winter, Joss Wright, PhD, Tom Zhang (张拓木), Since Skype was acquired by Microsoft, both entities have refused to answer questions about exactly what kinds of user data can be intercepted, what user data is retained, or whether eavesdropping on Skype conversations may take place.(4) In 2012, the FBI stated that it had issued a warrant for chats going back to 2007, and that it had utilized those chats as evidence as the basis for criminal charges.(5) This contradicts Skype’s own policy stating that chats are retained for a maximum of 30 days.(6) Google — Transparency Report Quantitative data regarding the release of Skype user information to third parties, disaggregated by the country of origin of the request, including the number of requests made by governments, the type of data requested, the proportion of requests with which it complied — and the basis for rejecting those requests it does not comply with. Specific details of all user data Microsoft and Skype currently collects, and retention policies. Skype’s best understanding of what user data third-parties, including network providers or potential malicious attackers, may be able to intercept or retain. Documentation regarding the current operational relationship between Skype with TOM Online in China and other third-party licensed users of Skype technology, including Skype’s understanding of the surveillance and censorship capabilities that users may be subject to as a result of using these alternatives. Skype’s interpretation of its responsibilities under the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), its policies related to the disclosure of call metadata in response to subpoenas and National Security Letters (NSLs), and more generally, the policies and guidelines for employees followed when Skype receives and responds to requests for user data from law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the United States and elsewhere. Slate — Skype Won’t Comment on Whether It Can Now Eavesdrop on Conversations CNET News — Skype: We can’t comply with police wiretap requests Electronic Frontier Foundation — National Security Letters (NSLs) We call on Skype to release a regularly updated Transparency Report that includes: ACLU Blog — US Surveillance Law May Poorly Protect New Text Message Services Other companies, such as Google, Twitter and Sonic.net already release transparency reports detailing requests for user data by third parties twice a year.(9) We believe that this data is vital to help us help Skype’s most vulnerable users, who rely on your software for the privacy of their communications and, in some cases, their lives. In May 2006, the FCC issued a Second Report and Order that required facilities-based broadband Internet access providers and providers of interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service to come into compliance with CALEA obligations no later than May 14, 2007.(7) Existing US surveillance law is unclear regarding the specific form of legal process required for law enforcement agencies to compel the production of metadata associated with Internet based text messaging services.(8) Federal Communications Commission Open Letter to Skype From Concerned Privacy Advocates, Internet Activists, Journalists & Other Organizations Thursday January 24th, 2013; Skype Division President Tony Bates Microsoft Chief Privacy Officer Brendon Lynch Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith Dear Mr. Bates, Mr. Lynch and Mr. Smith, Skype is a voice, video and chat communications platform with over 600 million users worldwide, effectively making it one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies. Many of its users rely on Skype for secure communications—whether they are activists operating in countries governed by authoritarian regimes, journalists communicating with sensitive sources, or users who wish to talk privately in confidence with business associates, family, or friends. 1. In June 2008, Skype stated it could not eavesdrop on user conversations due to its peer-to-peer architecture and encryption techniques.(1) Additionally, Skype claimed it was not required to comply with expanded CALEA rules on lawful interception as long as it was based in Europe.(2) As a result of the service being acquired by Microsoft in 2011, it may now be required to comply with CALEA due to the company being headquartered in Redmond, Washington. Furthermore, as a US-based communication provider, Skype would therefore be required to comply with the secretive practice of National Security Letters.(3) RSF_en Organizations Abine, Access, AIDS Policy Project, ASL19, Asociación de Internautas, Aspiration, Bolo Bhi, Calyx Institute, ChokePoint Project, Crossbear Project, Cryptocat, Crypto.is, Cyber Arabs / IWPR, DFRI, Digital Rights Foundation, Digitale Gesellschaft e.
