(AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSWith their new state-of-the-art stadium, Pochettino the Spurs were “World Cup winners in facilities”He called on players to now perform at par with the World Cup standardsTottenham have yet to win a trophy in the five years since Pochettino took chargeTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed his club are now “World Cup winners” in terms of facilities after opening their new state-of-the-art stadium by beating Crystal Palace 2-0 on Wednesday.Second-half goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen ensured Spurs snapped a five-game winless run in the Premier League and moved Pochettino’s side back up to third at the expense of north London rivals Arsenal.The Gunners have a game in hand over Tottenham, but victory also maintained a slender one-point lead over fifth-placed Chelsea and opened up a three-point advantage over Manchester United in the race for a top-four finish.”Thank you. Today will be remembered for all my life.”#SpursAreHome #COYS pic.twitter.com/NE1DZ857GhTottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 3, 2019Pochettino underlined the need for what he believes is the “best stadium in the world” to have Champions League football next season before kick-off.And he called on his players to now perform to the level of their facilities on offer at both the club’s training ground and new home.”Now we are World Cup winners in facilities,” said Pochettino. “Now the stadium is here and we need to be on the same level.”Tottenham have yet to win a trophy in the five years since Pochettino took charge, but have consistently punched above their weight by qualifying for the Champions League despite a more limited budget than their top six rivals.That feeling when you write your name into Spurs folklore…#SpursAreHome #COYS pic.twitter.com/726JR1niAZadvertisementTottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 3, 2019Next week, English champions Manchester City visit in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final and Pochettino wants his side to compete for major honours in the coming years.”We need to start to think about the new chapter, the new era, to ensure Tottenham is a real contender for the big things. With our training ground, this new stadium, you must think big.”We have to behave like a big club for sure. We need to be a realistic contender for big things.” A run of just one point from their previous five league games left Spurs in serious peril of missing out on the Champions League next season.Plenty of work is still to be done in their remaining six matches, but with four of them on home soil, Pochettino is confident they will secure a top-four finish for the fourth straight season.”I am so confident we are going to get top four,” he added. “I think this group of players and of course everyone (at the club) deserve to be in the Champions League next season.”A momentous day.#SpursAreHome #COYS pic.twitter.com/K2FwsBdq92Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 3, 2019After 690 days since saying goodbye to the old White Hart Lane, Spurs returned home with plenty of pre-match pomp and ceremony with an operatic performance of “Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur” and fireworks before kick-off.Yet, at half-time, they were facing the prospect of dropping out of the top four for the first time since November with Chelsea beating Brighton at Stamford Bridge.And it was an on-loan Chelsea striker who nearly did his parent club a huge favour five minutes into the second-half when Palace’s Michy Batshuayi curled just beyond Hugo Lloris’s far post.Pochettino’s men were left lamenting their luck when Toby Alderweireld’s last minute own goal cost them a deserved point at Liverpool on Sunday, but they had fortune on their side moments later to the huge relief of most of the near 60,000 in attendance.Son’s shot was headed straight down Vicente Guaita’s throat until a big deflection off Luka Milivojevic left the Spaniard completely wrong-footed as the ball rolled into the bottom corner.Harry Kane could not cap a momentous night with a goal, but the England captain was involved Spurs second 10 minutes from time as he broke into the area before the ball fell kindly for Eriksen to force home from close range.Also Read | Premier League: Tottenham inaugurates new stadium with 2-0 win over Crystal Palace Also Read | Atletico Madrid defeat 2-0 with late goals from Godin and GriezmannAlso Read | AFC Olympic Qualifiers: India women sail past Indonesia with 2-0 winAlso Watch | Australia should pick David Warner for the 2019 ICC World Cup: VVS LaxmanFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

New hotline and website for reporting concerns

Members of the Brock community now have a 24-hour hotline and a website where they can disclose concerns about improper activity at the University under the recently-approved Safe Disclosure Policy.The toll-free phone line 1 855 484-CARE (2273) and website let people communicate in confidence, and anonymously, to a third-party consultant who is independent from University administration. https://www.grantthorntoncare.ca/When it was approved just over a year ago, the Safe Disclosure Policy put Brock among a progressive group of institutions who were introducing “whistleblower” regulations to protect employees who want to report on suspected improper activities.The policy applies to all Brock employees, students, volunteers, contractors and suppliers, and creates a safe mechanism if people want to disclose information about suspected improper activity. This could mean a serious breach of University policy, a violation of legal or regulatory requirements, serious financial misconduct or other similar situations.The policy also makes a priority of protecting from reprisal anyone who makes a “good faith disclosure” — in other words, a report of suspected improper activity that is based on reasonable belief and is not “malicious, frivolous, vexatious.”Until now, individuals who had a concern could report to their own unit or to Internal Audit Services. The new hotline and website provide an alternative route that goes directly to the independent system overseer, Canadian accounting and business advisory firm Grant Thornton.Rob Cargnelli, Brock’s Director of Internal Audit, says the hotline and website are intended only for those who are uncomfortable disclosing in person. He said the system has been designed to guarantee anonymity, so disclosers can communicate with the University anonymously after a disclosure has been made.  Upon logging into the CARE system, disclosers receive an access code to a secure portal, which lets the University respond to them without compromising their anonymity.The policy does not compel or require people to disclose, but guarantees anonymity to people who choose to do so. It was developed at the direction of the Board of Trustees, which saw a need to support employees who want to help protect the University’s integrity and wellbeing.“It is very important that individuals have a route to express concerns they may have with inappropriate behaviour in an organization,” said Board Chair John Suk. “There are instances where people see or hear things that should not be tolerated in a progressive workplace, but feel that their observations may reflect badly on them or even lead to retaliatory actions.“A safe disclosure policy is intended to provide people with a safe and confidential avenue to report these incidents without any fear of reprisal, with the further goal to improve the overall working environment.” read more

The Windows Phone Nokia Phone is in Production

first_imgThe very first Nokia phone to run on an operating system that wasn’t built by Nokia is reportedly already in the beginning stages of development. It will use Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform.The partnership between Nokia and Microsoft was announced earlier this year, baffling some who wondered by Nokia wouldn’t go for Android – the leading mobile OS – to bring itself out of an impending grave. Aside from the fact that Nokia CEO Stephen Elop used to be a Microsoft executive, there are reports that MS paid around $100 million for the deal.It’s still unclear when the phone will be released, or if the new partnership will save Nokia from its draining market share.

Photo by Dean Swope / KYUK.KYUK’s Anna Rose MacArthur interviewed Joshua Gill, director of personnel for LKSD, in the parking lot as he and other LKSD staff directed traffic.Listen to hear their conversation about Ayaprun’s first day back in class.Download AudioKYUK: So this seems kind of amazing that less than a week ago the fire happened, and now it’s Monday and you’re back in school. Is this a fast turn around for this type of event?Gill: Absolutely. I think so. But I also think it’s the spirit of LKSD. We chip in across the district. We had stuff flown in from Eek. We had things from all over the school district that was brought in to get these kids back in the classroom.KYUK: Have you been able to talk with any of the parents or kids and hear what they’ve been saying today?Gill: Unfortunately, no, I’ve been out here directing traffic. But I did see a few smiling faces walking into their classrooms this morning, so it was really good.KYUK: Today have you heard from teachers what the plan is?Gill: It’s basically, we’ll get kids back in, learn their new routines, cause they’re going to the bathroom in a different place, just get those patterns set up— where they’re going to eat lunch, where they’re going to play on the playground. All those things established and just get back in the school routine. It’s almost like the first day of school.KYUK: And what about the state of the Yup’ik materials? Where have those materials come from?Gill: All over the state. I know there’s stuff coming in from Fairbanks, Yukon school district, throughout LKSD schools. We’re getting pieces from all over. We’re gathering them and seeing what we and finding the holes of those things we still need to do. But it’s amazing. You’ve got a staff in there, a very veteran staff, a very dedicated staff. They were in there creating stuff all weekend long for their kids for at least this week.KYUK: It’s amazing, I’ve gotten emotional all this week thinking about this. Why so you think that it is such an emotional event?Gill: The burning of the school affected everybody. It affected everybody across the delta in some way or another. And I think that really the outpour from the community of stepping up, and not just the community but the state, of people coming together and just supporting these kids has been amazing. It absolutely has been amazing. I think about it every day when I open up my email, and there’s five more emails of people saying what can we do to help? And we’re talking from people from the Lower-48, across the state, and here on the YK.We were in here all weekend working, and just seeing the parents in here, working for their kids, seeing the community members, teachers across the district coming in, saying “What can I do for the day to get these kids back in the building?”KYUK: And lastly, when you said that they were working here all weekend, what does that mean? What were they working on?Gill: Setting up their classroom, getting ready for the kids to be in the first day. What a lot of people don’t realize for a primary teacher is those little things—the name tags on the desk, the routines on the wall, those pieces that they need to have a successful day, especially their first day.As Ayaprun’s kindergarten through third graders begin classes at the LKSD office, the fourth- through sixth-graders are starting school at Gladys Jung Elementary.last_img read more

Reliance Jio 4G How Reliance Industries telecom arm plans to take on

first_imgReliance Jio Infocomm has come up with an idea that could be win-win for both mobile service providers and handset makers, even as it gears up to launch its 4G services commercially by the end of this year. In the process, it could also steal a march over its rivals such as Airtel, Idea Cellular and Vodafone.The telecom arm of Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has been creating a steady buzz about the limited launch of its 4G services for about 5 lakh users comprising RIL Group employees, partners, vendors and associates last December.Currently, the user base stands at 1.5 million, according to a presentation by the company after its June quarter results.After withdrawing the 10GB data-at-Rs 93-offer to Reliance Jio Sim users on Tuesday within a month of making the offer last month, the company now plans to offer three months of free data and voice services along with handsets. The company has already finalised a deal to that effect with Korean handset maker Samsung and the next could be Apple, reports the Economic Times. “The company expects this strategy will help to instantly build its consumer base even before the commercial launch expected anytime this year,” the ET quoted an RIL official as saying.Though the company has not given a time-frame for launching its 4G services, it did say the roll out would be “soon” after the declaration of its Q4, FY2016 results in April this year.”Test program to be progressively upgraded into commercial operations in coming months,” RIL had said in its presentation to analysts.  “Initial feedback very encouraging; established smooth operations of all aspects of network and business,” it had added. Shares of RIL were trading at Rs. 1,022, up 0.65 percent from their previous close, at around 1.40 p.m. on the Bombay Stock Exchange. Reliance Jio Infocomm will be raising Rs. 15,000 crore via rights issue, RIL recently said in a regulatory filing with the National Stock Exchange.last_img read more

BREAKING NEWS Fugitive billionaire Nirav Modi arrested in London to be produced

first_img Nirav Modi’s Rs 100 crore seaside bungalow in Alibaug demolished Close Nirva Modi during the inauguration of Nirav Modi Jewellry shop in Mumbai on March 14, 2015.IANSDiamantaire Nirav Modi, who is wanted in the $2 billion PNB fraud case, was arrested in London on Tuesday. The 48-year-old was reportedly staying in the United Kingdom since February 2018. He is expected to be produced at London’s Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday at 3.30 pm (IST).Modi was arrested at the Holborn area of central London. A court in London had earlier issued an arrest warrant against Modi. The court was responding to a request raised by the Enforcement Directorate for his extradition from the UK. After an arrest warrant against him was issued, Modi had applied for leave to appeal against his extradition. According to reports, Nirav Modi had entered the UK on a golden visa. This visa is issued for those outside the UK who promise to invest at least 2 billion pounds in the country within a span of five years in exchange for permanent residency.The development comes days after Telegraph UK released a video revealing Nirav Modi’s whereabouts. In the video, the fugitive businessman was seen roaming on the streets of London sporting a handle-bar moustache and a jacket by Ostrich Hide, which costs around £10,000. As per the media reports, Nirav Modi arrived in London in February 2018 and even managed to travel in and out of the country at least four times despite his passport being cancelled by India.center_img IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:02/0:48Loaded: 0%0:02Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-0:46?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Billboard Campaign Aims To Reactivate Search For Houston Child Missing Since 2005

first_imgImage: Courtesy of Clear Channel OutdoorThe billboards that are being used in the Houston area feature Abraham Campos’ photo when he went missing and an age-progressed photo of what he might look like nowadays.May 25 is National Missing Children’s Day and the Texas Center for the Missing and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA) are collaborating in an effort to call attention to ongoing searches for local missing children through a digital billboard campaign.Specifically in Houston, the campaign is focusing on the disappearance of Abraham Campos, who has been missing since 2005 and is now 17 years-old.Clear Channel Outdoor Americas owns the billboards and the message displayed in the Houston area through June will feature Abraham’s photo when he went missing and an age-progressed photo of what he might look like nowadays. A felony warrant has been issued for, Fedra Najeram, Abraham’s mother, who allegedly kidnapped the boy.“We know that photos bring missing children home and we rely on our partners like Clear Channel Outdoor Americas to help us in our mission. We are grateful to them for the continued support to find missing children and helping to reunite families,” Beth Alberts, CEO of the Texas Center for the Missing, said in a news release.Michelle Costa, regional president of CCOA-Southern, noted that the company’s digital billboards “have the ability to reach passersby in high-traffic areas as they are out and about.”Dallas, El Paso and San Antonio are other Texas cities where the campaign is taking place.In 2017, the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Missing Persons Clearinghouse received 55,346 missing person reports, with 41,893 of them being about juveniles.For regional missing children alerts, visit http://www.missingkids.com/RSS Sharelast_img read more

Accrediting Board Rejects Appeal from North Carolina School

first_imgBy The Associated PressOfficials at a historically black private women’s college in North Carolina have lost their appeal to have the school’s accreditation restored.News outlets report The Southern Association of Schools Commission on Colleges announced Friday that a panel had rejected Bennett College’s appeal, which was heard earlier this week.Bennett College (Photo/The Associated Press Guide to Photojournalism via YouTube)The decision leaves Bennett without accreditation for now. There was no immediate reaction from the school.Imani Stephen, a sophomore at the school, said she was having lunch in the school cafeteria when she and her classmates got word of the decision by watching television.“I don’t know how to feel exactly. I’m shocked. I’m hurt. I’m disappointed,” Stephen said. “I don’t really have the exact words to explain my emotions right now.”School leaders have said previously that they will sue the agency. In previous instances, the commission has responded to lawsuits by agreeing to extend accreditation to accommodate the legal process.In December, the commission revoked Bennett’s accreditation because it said the school didn’t have sufficient financial resources.Bennett embarked on a fundraising campaign to maintain its accreditation and raised nearly $10 million. Nearby High Point University President Nido Qubein announced earlier this month that his school would donate $1 million to Bennett.The News & Record of Greensboro reports the college had been on probation for two previous years — the most allowed under the commission’s rules — for financial concerns and other issues. Bennett posted six straight years of annual operating losses until 2016-17, the year that President Phyllis Worthy Dawkins became the college’s interim leader.last_img read more

Amazon Blasts FAA for Slowness on Drone Regulation

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. E-commerce power Amazon.com blasted federal regulators on Tuesday for being slow to approve commercial drone testing, saying the United States is falling behind other countries in the potentially lucrative area of unmanned aviation technology.Less than a week after the Federal Aviation Administration gave Amazon.com the green light to test a delivery drone outdoors, the company told U.S. lawmakers that the prototype drone had already become obsolete while the company waited more than six months for the agency’s permission.”We don’t test it anymore. We’ve moved on to more advanced designs that we already are testing abroad,” said Paul Misener, Amazon.com’s vice president for global public policy.”Nowhere outside of the United States have we been required to wait more than one or two months to begin testing,” Misener said in written testimony submitted to the Senate Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety and Security.Misener said Amazon had applied on Friday for permission to test a more advanced drone system and now hopes for quicker approval.The Amazon.com case illustrates the frustrations of many companies and industry lobbyists, who say the U.S. regulatory process is not keeping up with rapidly developing drone technology that could generate new revenues and cost savings for a range of industries.Misener, who was scheduled to join a witness panel at the subcommittee hearing, said European and other international authorities have more “reasonable” approaches that recognize the potential economic benefits of commercial drone operations.”This low level of government attention and slow pace are inadequate, especially compared to the regulatory efforts in other countries,” Misener said.”The (FAA) already has adequate statutory authority. What the FAA needs is impetus, lest the United States fall further behind,” he added.Seattle-based Amazon.com, the largest e-commerce company in the United States, wants to use drones to deliver packages to its customers over distances of 10 miles (16 km)or more, which would require drones to travel autonomously while equipped with technology to avoid collisions with other aircraft.The FAA recently proposed rules that would lift the current ban on most commercial drone flights, but several restrictions attached would make package delivery and other business applications unfeasible.Among other constraints, the proposed rules would limit commercial drones to an altitude of 500 feet (150 meters), allow flights only during daytime and require operators to keep the aircraft in sight at all times.The agency does not expect to finalize the rules until late 2016 or early 2017, according to government officials. During this period, the current ban will stay in place; companies can apply for exemptions to use drones for specific business applications.The FAA has been slow to grant exemptions, however, granting only 48 of several hundred requests.The Republican-led subcommittee called the hearing to examine the agency’s efforts to integrate unmanned aircraft systems, or UAS, safely into U.S. airspace. Industry forecasters say that drones would generate nearly $14 billion of U.S. economic activity in the first three years of integration and $82 billion over a decade.Meanwhile, Australia, Canada, France and the United Kingdom have progressed toward airspace integration and allow for commercial use, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report to the subcommittee.Australia has granted operating certificates to 185 businesses, while several European countries have granted licenses to more than 1,000 operators, according to the report.While the GAO said overseas restrictions are similar to those proposed by the FAA, it noted that France has begun to allow beyond-line-of-sight operations on a limited basis.(Additional reporting by Allison Lampert in Montreal Editing by Soyoung Kim and Jonathan Oatis) 4 min read Register Now » March 24, 2015 This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalslast_img read more

Were risking a mass extinction of frogs – and theyre the canary

first_imgRelated posts:With current rate of climate change, 23 percent of species in South America could face extinction, study finds Researchers find specimen of Costa Rican frog believed to be extinct Prosecutors ask for maximum sentences for defendants in Jairo Mora murder trial To conserve the Amazon, the forest must become an economic ‘asset’ While there’s been extensive research attempting to predict the future of Earth’s vulnerable plants and animals, there have been comparatively few studies investigating the extinctions that have occurred in the past.Looking backward is an important method of understanding how extinction rates have changed over time, the environmental factors that have influenced them and how seriously they have affected Earth’s ecosystems. Now, a researcher from Macquarie University in Australia has published a study examining recent extinctions within two vulnerable groups of animals – reptiles and amphibians – and the results are cause for alarm. Most notably, they indicate that approximately 200 frog species have already gone extinct, and hundreds more may be on their way out.John Alroy, a professor of biological sciences at Macquarie University and the paper’s author, said he was inspired to conduct the study when a journalist asked him what scientists know about the number of species that have already gone extinct. “I looked for a paper where they do this, and I didn’t find one,” Alroy said.So he decided to analyze a large taxonomic group and settled on reptiles and amphibians – partly because there was a large amount of global data available for these groups, and partly because of a growing concern in the scientific community over the health of frog populations, which are thought to be in a state of decline in many places. “There was a very strong indication that I would get some frog extinctions,” Alroy said.And he did. Using a statistical method known as a Bayesian approach, Alroy estimated the probability of past extinctions for certain types of amphibians and reptiles, including frogs, salamanders, snakes and lizards, using museum collections and published documents to figure out when an animal was last sighted. He found that frogs seemed to be the most vulnerable to extinction – the results suggested that more than 3 percent of all frog species have disappeared, largely since the 1970s.The method “suggests that about 200 frog extinctions have occurred and hundreds more will be lost over the next century, so we are on pace to create a mass extinction,” the study states.This is a worrisome finding, especially since Alroy describes his method as highly conservative, meaning it’s likely to underestimate the number of extinctions that have actually taken place. And the results also predict that if these extinction rates keep up, nearly 7 percent of frogs could be lost in the next century. “Thus, the data suggest that a runaway train of extinction is now likely to produce what would be seen as a global mass extinction on the ultimately more important landscape of geological time,” Alroy writes in the paper.To put those numbers in context, the data suggest that extinction rates for reptiles and amphibians are about 10,000 times larger than the rates for all other organisms.In general, though, other types of amphibians and reptiles experienced lower extinction rates than frogs. “I found a much smaller proportional number of extinctions for snakes and lizards – half as much, nominally,” Alroy said. “The message there is that snakes and lizards are much more robust to various environmental pressures.”These results weren’t necessarily surprising, since scientists are already aware that frogs are a particularly vulnerable group. “They’re seen as a ‘canary in the coal mine’ group because they seem to suffer large population losses more easily than other groups,” Alroy said. “What was surprising was the geographic pattern of frog extinctions.” AP/US Fish and Wildlife ServiceIn addition to large losses in Central America, Alroy also noted extinctions in Brazil, Madagascar and New Guinea – “places where there are not well-documented population losses due to anything,” Alroy said. “I think there are mass extinctions happening in the tropics that are largely undocumented.”It’s unclear what’s been causing these extinctions, which seem to have accelerated in the past several decades. A variety of factors could be at play, including habitat destruction and the devastating effects of a deadly fungus called Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. And there wasn’t a clear pattern between environmental pressures and extinctions. For instance, some places with high rates of extinction were also known hotspots for the fungus, while others had no documentation of the fungus ever being present.And that might be one of the most concerning points of all, since it means scientists still don’t have a clear idea of what’s killing off all the frogs. “Honest to goodness, I don’t know what’s going on,” Alroy said. “The pattern seems to be that there are more extinctions in the wet tropics, speaking very loosely, which is not too surprising because that’s where all the biodiversity is. But that doesn’t really answer the question of what’s going on.”Future research should include more field work in order to figure out the environmental pressures that are causing extinctions in different locations, Alroy said. Then scientists might be able to start taking action to cut down on the losses.Alroy notes that when conducting such research in the future, it’s important for scientists to look at the broad range of environmental factors that might be affecting an animal. “There’s a tendency in the literature to focus very strongly on the potential future impacts of climate change, specifically,” Alroy said. And while climate change is likely to be an important factor in the coming years “this paper suggests that in the absence of really severe climate change we’ve already seen the beginning of a major mass extinction.”“I’m not saying we should stop looking at climate change,” he added. “I’m saying there should be additional focus on other causal factors like habitat destruction and invasive species in particular. So I’m hoping this paper will encourage more research of that kind.”© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more

earned 65% of what men earned There is also a stark difference between the earnings of mothers and fatherswhile we mark Equal Pay Day in April for all women if we were to compare the pay of parents moms equal pay day would take place in early June as it would take them nearly six extra months to earn what fathers earn in just one year While working mothers earn less than childless women on average men who become fathers actually earn more and are more likely to be hired than childless men Earnings also vary considerably between different fields with women in financial management for example earning on average just 67% of what their male peers are paid Traditionally female-dominated fields are often worse paid and less respected than those dominated by men When women move into male-dominated occupations however research suggests that rather than solving the problem those fields tend to become less respected and lower paid as a result Contrary to one common argument the pay gap cannot simply be explained by “womens life choices” (Indeed even if it were the explanation is inadequate: why should we accept the fact that having a child should have a negative impact on womens careers and earnings but not on mens) This myth was exploded by the AAUW in its 2012 report: “Graduating to a Pay Gap: The Earnings of Women and Men One Year after College Graduation” The report revealed that just one year after graduation when many people have yet to think about starting a family women working full time were paid on average just 82% of what their male peers earned All this adds up Analysis by the National Womens Law Center suggests that the average American woman will earn about $430000 less than a man over a 40-year career For African American women the losses mount to $877480 and for Latinas they stand at over $1 million But perhaps the most depressing statistic of all is this one from the National Committee on Pay Equity: In 2006 women earned on average 77 cents for every dollar men earned meaning that the gender pay gap has barely budged in a decade Despite the fact that the AAUW and others have called for initiatives like salary audits flexible working hours and the implementation of the Paycheck Fairness Act concrete measures that might help close the gap have not yet been widely implemented In 2015 the Institute for Womens Policy Research estimated that it will be 2059 before women receive equal pay So get your party hats ready for a big celebration ladiesin just 43 years time Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the

in jobs dominated by men have high levels of interpersonal stress that could harm their health shows a new study presented at the American Sociological Association’s annual meeting Indiana University Bloomington researchers looked at daily stress hormone patterns from more than 440 women in a large US survey who worked in jobs where at least 85% of the workforce were men In academic terms a woman is considered an "occupational token" when 15% of colleagues in her occupation are women That definition included jobs like construction supervisors engineers painters and groundskeepers MORE: Here’s Why Work Email Puts You In A Nasty Mood Prior evidence shows that women in male-dominated jobs often experience stressors like social isolation sexual harassment and low levels of support in the workplace The researchers thought that stressors like these could impact patterns of the stress hormone cortisol which fluctuate throughout the day but take an irregular pattern in people exposed to high consistent levels of stress the authors say In the study they found that the “token” women had less healthy cortisol profiles compared to women who worked in jobs with a more even gender split MORE: Why Failure Hits Girls So Hard “Men in occupations with 85% or more men do not evidence the same dysregulated cortisol profiles that we see in women in the same occupations” says study author Cate Taylor an assistant professor of sociology and gender studies at Indiana University Bloomington Cortisol is also particularly sensitive to social stressors and not as much to physical stressors the authors say which adds to the evidence that at least some of the irregularity in cortisol profiles is linked to negative workplace social climates that women face Contact us at

from 2015 A review of the reported burglaries found the majority 37 occurred in the southeast quadrant of the city which the Herald defined as south of DeMers Avenue and East of Columbia Road Eleven burglaries each were reported in the northeast and northwest quadrants of the city with 12 reported in the southwest quadrant June has been the biggest month for burglaries so far with 20 calls for service with police incident reports as of June 30 Several of those burglaries were reported in southeast Grand Forks east of Belmont Road between 24th Avenue South and 32nd Avenue South Police Lt Brett Johnson said the department has not made any arrests related to two burglary outbreaks believed to have occurred overnight on May 30 and June 17 in south Grand Forks “These are crimes of opportunity in as much as we suspect … they’re going through neighborhoods and trying doors” he said None of the reported burglaries in the June burst in the southeast part of town were forced entries Johnson said but instead have come from unlocked doors or open garages Burglaries often occur in bursts with thieves pilfering through stretches of neighborhoods seeking easy targets Thieves are

that he was blackmailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointees or traditional rulers The EFCC in a statement by its spokesman Mr Wilson Uwujaren said that some unscrupulous elements operating as social media soldiers were only trying to dent his hard-earned name and reputation on his purported non-confirmation by the Senate as the substantive chair of the EFCC The commission said the mission to bring down Magu was being sponsored by forces that were not comfortable with his campaign to rescue the nation from the grip of corruption The statement added “In the last week or so the social media has been awash with fictitious reports all painting an uncanny picture of desperation by Magu over his purported non-confirmation as substantive chair of the EFCC and of stricture within the rank and file of the EFCC workforce leading to resignations “One of such reports is the one making the rounds in several gossip blogs with the title ‘How EFCC’s Magu and Sahara Reporters Peddle Lies to the Media’ The report which is a parody of disingenuous invention of falsehood is the handiwork of mischievous people hell-bent on causing disaffection between the Magu-led EFCC and the executive on the one hand and the members of staff of the EFCC on the other” The statement added that “The allusion to bullying and victimization of EFCC staff is clearly designed to instigate the staff of the commission against its leadership as there is no truth in it For the records no ‘senior EFCC core official’ has resigned from the commission and insinuation of mass resignation at the commission is
