Moroccan Government Withdrawals of SADR Recognition Will Continue

Rabat – Spokesperson of the Moroccan Government Mustapha El Khalfi expressed the government’s satisfaction with El Salvador and Barbados’ decision to withdraw recognition of self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR).In the press conference, El Khalfi said that Morocco’s government  is committed to addressing any provocative action that h seeks to undermine Morocco’s territorial integrity. The government’s stance is complemented by the newly adopted “vigilance system,” he said.  El Khalfi highlighted how Morocco responded  after the organizing committee of the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt posted a video featuring the flag of the the Polisario Front’s self-styled SADR.  “All the stakeholders s intervened, including the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Sports, the Royal Football Federation, and the Moroccan embassy [in Egypt].”Morocco’s quick reaction resulted in an official apology from the organizing committee, as well as  the Egyptian government.Morocco’s position on the conflict is gaining traction. “The best proof of this,  is the decision of El Salvador and Barbados to withdraw their recognition of the self-proclaimed SADR, he added. “The number of countries that support the Polisario Front decreased from 80 countries to 50 countries. It is a limited number of countries,” said El Khalfi, adding that the number of withdrawals will increase.El Khalfi pointed out that there will be no “empty chair” policy anymore as Morocco’s government is mobilizing all its resources to combat any hostile moves that seeks to  undermine its territorial integrity and its sovereignty over the southern provinces in Western Sahara.Read Also: Morocco Satisfied with Barbados’ Decision to Withdraw Recognition of Self-proclaimed ‘SADR’The spokesperson of the Moroccan government  recalled Morocco’s participation in the 41st session of the Human Rights Council held in Geneva this week.During the Council session, a group of states sympathetic to Morocco’s position  expressed support for Morocco’s territorial integrity and its Autonomy Plan.The group also reiterated their full support for the UN-led political process to end the conflict, saying that the “issue of the Sahara is a political dispute managed in New York where the Security Council is making efforts to facilitate the achievement of a mutually acceptable political solution.”The group, which includes, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, reiterated  that the Moroccan Autonomy initiative has been recognized by the UN Security Council as the “unique and exclusive way to resolve” the decades-long regional conflict. read more

Brock grad recognized for cider success

In the basement lab of Brickworks Ciderhouse, among the shiny fermenters and wine barrels, you can often find Emily Gillard eagerly testing new recipes.The 25-year-old Brock alumna (BSc ’15) is always in search of the next great mixture, having created 40 different ciders for the downtown Toronto cidery last year alone.Gillard’s passion for the industry has not gone unnoticed. In February, she was honoured at the annual CiderCon conference in Chicago, where Brock University joined other Cider Institute of North America (CINA) program providers to announce new advanced-level courses.Brock alumna Emily Gillard, assistant cider maker at Brickworks Ciderhouse, pours cider from taps at the cidery’s downtown Toronto restaurant.Gilliard received the inaugural Peter Mitchell award for educational excellence in cider production for her achievements in the CINA foundation-level certification course as well has her work at Brickworks. The foundation course was developed by Mitchell, an internationally recognized authority in cider who will teach an advanced course at Brock in June.“It was an honour just to be nominated, then to win is pretty crazy,” Gillard said. “There are so many talented people in the cider industry, and everyone is very supportive of each other. I am very happy to work for a company that values education and wants me to keep learning and growing.”The creativity of Brickworks staff is apparent in the 10 taps behind the bar of the cidery’s 3,000-square-foot restaurant, which pour interesting flavours such as Mint Basil, Tequila Mockingbird and Wild Thing.“We experiment with lots of herbs, spice and different fruits. We have also done very traditional ciders using Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, tequila, rum and bourbon barrels,” said Gillard. “There are endless possibilities. If you can imagine it, then you can make it and hopefully you can make it taste good.”That innovation has cider makers creating a range of products that appeal to a large and growing consumer base. Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) is helping apple growers and hard cider producers meet the demands of this rapidly growing market.Brock is the only program provider in Canada to offer professional development courses at two levels of certification in cider production through CINA, and also provides analytical testing services to help cider makers deliver the best product possible.“I just think you can never stop learning in this industry. Ontario is growing and growing in terms of craft cider,” said Gillard, who has been the assistant cider maker for Brickworks since January 2018.Cider wasn’t always her focus, as she began her career in the wine industry.After graduating from Brock’s Oenology and Viticulture program (OEVI), Gillard travelled to New Zealand to learn about winemaking there, and also worked in California.“When I got back to Ontario, I realized there had been a huge cider boom. Orchards were being planted and more wineries were starting to produce cider,” she said. “I was really excited to learn more and wanted a new challenge.”A little more than five years ago, there was only a handful of cider producers in Ontario, but that number now sits at more than 60.Gillard took what she learned at Brock’s CCOVI and the hands-on co-op experience she gained while she was a student in OEVI and applied it to making cider.“Cider is essentially the same process, you are taking fruit and fermenting it,” Gillard said.  “A big part of cider making is blending and having things work together, which is similar for winemaking.”It takes about six weeks to complete a micro batch of cider, which is then put into a keg and sent up to the Brickworks restaurant for guests to enjoy.“There have been quite a few ciders where we have actually gone out and picked the fruit ourselves. We have spent a day picking mulberries or crab apples,” Gillard said. “For one of our batches, Second Chronicles of Hop, we used fresh hop buds. We went up to the hopyard, which looks like a jungle, got up on the back of a tractor with machetes and chopped down the hops. We brought them back, put them in a mesh bag and immersed them in the cider.”With her innovative ideas supported by a strong educational foundation, Gillard is a “great example of how Brock students and alumni are in a position to be leaders in the growing Canadian cider industry,” said Steven Trussler, the CINA-certified instructor in CCOVI’s cider program.“The advanced-level courses at Brock, two of which will be offered this summer, will play a key role in helping cider makers develop their technical skills and gain industry-recognized qualifications.”Later this month a new batch of 25 students will attend CCOVI’s Cider and Perry Production foundation program, with another offering in August. In June, the advanced certification science and practice course is being offered and will be taught by Mitchell.For more information about CCOVI’s cider programs and to register visit brocku.ca/ccovi. read more

Axe to grind Gophers and Badgers renew Midwest grudge match

MADISON, Wis. — If given the chance to deliver an inspirational talk to teammates this week, Wisconsin offensive lineman Beau Benzschawel would keep it short and get right to the point.The exact two-word phrase is best left said in the privacy of the locker room, though it might go along the lines of “Beat Minnesota.”Welcome to the 128th edition of annual upper Midwest grudge match for Paul Bunyan’s Axe between the Golden Gophers and Badgers, major college football’s most played rivalry. The Badgers (7-4, 5-3 Big Ten) have won 14 straight in the series, and they have no intention of giving the Axe up on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.“It’s special, you think about the guys before you that have played in this game and have won the trophy. It’s kind of like a piece of history you get to be a part of,” Benzschawel said.As far he knew earlier in the week, the senior wasn’t one of the players who would give a brief pregame pep talk.“If I did, it would be a pretty easy, two-word sentence,” the standout right guard said. “That’s all the motivation … I need really.”The Badgers have the edge over Minnesota (5-6, 2-6) in several key statistical categories, including rushing offence and turnover margin. But this is a game in which players and coaches usually get asked more about emotions than matchups.For Minnesota, seniors have one last chance to break the losing streak and secure the bonus of becoming bowl eligible with the upset.“It’s everything. It’s what everybody talks about all year. It’s always the game of the year, I think,” senior linebacker Blake Cashman said. “Personally for me, I can’t even remember the Gophers ever having it, I was so young.”Minnesota’s last win came in 2003; its last victory in Madison was in 1994.“That’s what we keep talking about. Sooner or later, our group is going to end that,” second-year coach P.J. Fleck said.TAYLOR TIMEWisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor averages 169.9 yards per game and is just 131 yards shy of his first 2,000-yard season with two games still left on the schedule. Another big game and Taylor might strengthen his case to at least get an invite to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist. Taylor is more concerned with sending Wisconsin’s seniors off with a victory in their final home game.“I’m glad he’s on our team and yet I love his approach because it has nothing to do with what’s next for him,” coach Paul Chryst said.SENIOR SURGECashman gives the Gophers a formidable foe versus the Badgers’ vaunted ground game, coming off a 20-tackle performance against Northwestern that earned the former walk-on the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award. The 20 tackles were the most by a Big Ten player in a non-overtime game since Ohio State’s Ryan Shazier had 20 against Indiana in 2013 and the most by a Minnesota player since Eli Ward’s 22 stops against Wisconsin in 2002.“He’s instinctual. He’s tough,” Fleck said. “I wish I had 130 of Blake Cashman.”MINNESOTA MANWisconsin’s Ryan Connelly is from Eden Prairie, Minnesota, but didn’t take sides in this rivalry while growing up. Connelly said he was actually an Iowa fan. There is no question about his allegiance now. Connelly forms one of the best inside linebacker duos in the country with fellow senior T.J. Edwards. They have been the rocks on a defence that has been hit by injuries at other positions.TERRIFIC TYLERMinnesota junior Tyler Johnson leads the Big Ten with 1,036 receiving yards and is tied for the lead with 10 receiving touchdowns. He’s also second in the league with 70 receptions. Johnson is 90 yards short of setting the program’s all-time single season record, set by Ron Johnson in 2000. Two more touchdowns would also give Tyler Johnson the all-time Gophers record.BEHIND CENTERWisconsin sophomore quarterback Jack Coan could make his fourth start and play his fifth game overall if Alex Hornibrook misses another game while in the concussion protocol. Hornibrook was questionable this week. After struggling at Northwestern and Penn State, Coan showed some improvement in the 47-44 win last week over Purdue after going 16 of 24 for 160 yards. If he plays, Coan would be ineligible to take a redshirt year this season.___AP Sports Writer Dave Campbell in Minneapolis contributed to this story.___More AP college football coverage: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Genaro C.

Malone seeking career as a doctor after football

As a senior at Gahanna Lincoln High School in 2005, Chris Malone earned all-district and second team all-Ohio Capital Conference as an offensive lineman. After receiving scholarship offers from some Football Championship Subdivision schools, Malone instead decided to join Ohio State as a walk-on. “I grew up loving the Buckeyes and I knew that if I didn’t give this a shot that I was always going to wonder ‘what if?’” Malone said. Malone redshirted in 2006 and then worked with the scout team as a freshman and sophomore. In his junior season, Malone’s perseverance paid off as he received scout team workhorse honors for the Navy and Iowa games and earned a little bit of playing time. “Even though we don’t make the highlights on ESPN, we know we do make a difference,” Malone said. “We get a chance to make our defense better every day by just playing our hardest during practice and challenging them.” As a senior, Malone continues working hard and earned playing time against Ohio University. Malone is majoring in biology at OSU and wants to pursue medical school after he graduates. “I would love to be a doctor, that’s always been my goal, that’s always been my dream,” Malone said. read more

Mens lacrosse Ohio State to square off against familiar face in NCAA

Ohio State senior attack Eric Fannell scored five goals in the Buckeyes dramatic comeback 11-10 overtime victory over Maryland on April 22 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsWHAT: NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship – No. 3 Ohio State vs. No. 1 Maryland at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.HOW TO WATCH: ESPN2 at 1 p.m. Streaming on WatchESPN app and ESPN3.comIt all comes down to this. A matchup of Big Ten rivals who have battled neck-and-neck all season will determine the next NCAA men’s lacrosse champion.The No. 3 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team (16-4) has battled No. 1 Maryland (15-3) twice this season, edging out the Terrapins at home in an 11-10 overtime thriller on April 22, and losing 10-9 in the finals of the Big Ten tournament in Columbus.After the team lost to Maryland in the tournament finals, coach Nick Myers and the rest of his unit believed that if they played to the level they were capable of, this season would end in a matchup between them and their East Coast rivals.“We have a ton of respect for Maryland,” Myers said. “We felt that night, we looked at each other and without knowing how this was going to turn out, ‘Hey, we’re going to see these guys again if we take care of business.’”Though the teams have built up a rivalry through their close, competitive games this season, Myers said that contempt for the opposition will not be the driving factor behind their play on Monday. Instead, respect for the opposition and the desire to play their best possible lacrosse would be what pushes the Buckeyes to play well.“You have to play your best lacrosse if you want to try to go out there and beat Maryland,” Myers said. “I think that that, more than contempt, is what it brings out.”The players echoed Myers’ sentiment.“The whole team is excited to play Maryland again,” senior attackman Eric Fannell said. “They’re a very, very good team, as coach Myers said. We have a lot of respect for them. And every time we play them, we play to our best ability and so do they. Big Ten matchup again. Grudge match.”The two teams will enter the game coming off a pair of narrow victories in the semifinals. OSU edged out Towson 11-10, and Maryland hung on late against fifth-seeded Denver to win 9-8.Though both games were close, and relatively low-scoring, the Buckeyes are prepared for a game that could be more of an offensive show, taking on a team that averaged the 10th-most goals per game in the NCAA this past season (12.67 goals per game).“They play a good team offense,” Myers said. “They’ve got a good front six — as good a front six as there is in lacrosse. We feel strongly in ours, and I think you’re going to see a collision tomorrow as you did in the first couple games.”The matchup in the Big Ten tournament championship game did not prove to be quite the offensive show many expected, until late in the game when a total of nine goals were scored in the fourth quarter in an eventual 10-9 Maryland victory.Myers believes that for the Buckeyes to find success against the Terrapins on Monday, the Buckeyes will need to put together an offensive effort capable of keeping up with their opponents.“That was a heavyweight slugfest that you saw in the Big Ten championship,” Myers said. “We’re chasing our best offense, and for us to accomplish the ultimate goal, we’ll have to do that. I think Maryland’s going to bring that out in us.”But this time, the stakes are a bit higher than they were the last time these two teams met. It is no longer a Big Ten title on the line. Now it’s for the NCAA championship.In the history of OSU lacrosse, the team has never made it to this point. It had never even made it to the semifinals before this season. And now, on the doorstep of history for the program, seniors like midfielder Jake Withers believe that while the program has vastly surpassed expectation in their tenure, the end goal has still not yet been reached.“We came a long way since my freshman year four years ago, and we’ve stumbled and we’ve made some steps. I feel like this year, you know, the progression that we’ve made to championship weekend is a culmination of all those things together,” Withers said. “With that said, we’re not done. Although we made a championship weekend and championship game, we want to make history and be the first Buckeye lacrosse team to bring the trophy back to Columbus.” read more

Black armbands tributes as sports world pays tribute to Mandela

first_imgSouth African golf great Gary Player called Mandela “our beloved Father of the South African nation”.“Madiba we loved you,” he added, using Mandela’s clan name.Football superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham sent tributes, while Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton posted a picture of himself with Mandela on his Facebook page.“One of the most special moments in my life was meeting the great Madiba,” Hamilton said. “One of the most inspirational human beings to have lived and without doubt the nicest man I ever met.”Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson called Mandela a “great man” and a “true fan” of boxing, which was a sport he pursued as a young man.And the International Cricket Council chief executive David Richardson, a former South Africa wicketkeeper, called Mandela a “hero”.“Mr. Mandela was celebrated for his unwavering dedication to human rights, equality and respect,” Richardson said. “He was and will forever remain a true hero.”- © AFP 2013A world mourns: Memories of Mandela grace the front pages>Nelson Mandela: A life in pictures> MUHAMMAD ALI PAID heartfelt tribute and Ashes cricketers donned black armbands Friday as the sports world united in respect and mourning after the death of Nelson Mandela.Heavyweight boxing legend Ali said Mandela “taught us forgiveness on a grand scale” as athletes and officials from Australia to Brazil expressed their sadness.FIFA chief Sepp Blatter called Mandela “one of the greatest humanists of our time” and Tiger Woods said he had been inspired by South Africa’s anti-apartheid hero.Australia and England held a minute’s silence before play in the second Ashes cricket Test in Adelaide, a scene replicated by New Zealand and West Indies in Dunedin. “What I will remember most about Mr. Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge.“He taught us forgiveness on a grand scale.”Blatter, who is attending the 2014 World Cup draw in Brazil, said he and Mandela had “shared an unwavering belief in the extraordinary power of football (and sport generally) to unite people in peace and friendship”.New Zealand’s rugby board hailed Mandela’s “far-reaching” influence on sport after he inspired South Africa to victory over the All Blacks in the 1995 World Cup final.Mandela famously appeared at the final in Johannesburg wearing a Springboks jersey — a stark symbol of white South Africa — in an act that electrified the stadium.“We have lost a champion for our game, a leader whose inspiration ensured the Rugby World Cup in 1995 was a remarkable time for our sport and whose influence on sport has been far-reaching,” said New Zealand Rugby Union chief executive Steve Tew.Woods, the world’s number one golfer, recalled having lunch with Mandela in 1998, the year after his first Masters triumph.“It was one of the most inspiring times I’ve ever had in my life,” said Woods. “I don’t think any of us probably here could have survived that and come out as humble and as dignified as he did.”center_img Ali, in a statement from the Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky, paid tribute to South Africa’s first black president, who led the country peacefully out of apartheid rule after spending nearly three decades in prison.“He made us realise, we are our brother’s keeper and that our brothers come in all colours,” said Ali, a towering figure in America’s civil rights movement.last_img read more

High drama few results as Trump warns of long shutdown

first_imgWASHINGTON — Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics Tuesday, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown.The House and Senate announced they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown’s 25th day, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congress provide $5.7 billion to build his promised border wall with Mexico. Democrats say they will discuss border security once the government has reopened, but Pelosi is refusing money for the wall they view as ineffective and immoral.The president, on a conference call with supporters, showed no signs of backing down.“We’re going to stay out for a long time, if we have to,” Trump said. “We’ll be out for a long time.”With some 800,000 federal employees furloughed or working without pay, Trump suggested the partial shutdown that has clogged airport security lines and shuttered federal agencies was going smoothly.“People are very impressed with how well government is working with the circumstances that we’re under,” Trump said.Behind the scenes, though, the administration — and its allies on Capitol Hill — are warily eyeing the next payday, hoping to reach a resolution before next week’s Tuesday deadline when they’ll need to prepare the next round of paychecks for workers who have been seeing zeros on their pay slips.last_img read more

Legislatures Exit Time Could Shift Initiative Scheduling

first_imgBetween a contested Senate primary and a mess of ballot questions, the August election is expected to be particularly lively. But a set of unusual circumstances and odd timing has the potential to knock all but one of the citizen measures to the November general election, if the Legislature gavels out late.Download AudioSince the early weeks of the session, legislative leadership has been emphatic that they plan to gavel out early.House Speaker Mike Chenault: “There’s a number of us that don’t think that Juneau is the place to be on Easter Sunday.”And Senate President Charlie Huggins: “Let’s get out of here before Easter.”An early close to the session lets lawmakers and staff enjoy egg hunts, family meals, and religious services. It also avoids a major ballot shuffle.Here’s the deal: The Alaska Constitution stipulates that 120 days need to pass after a legislative session before a citizens’ initiative can go to a vote. The idea is to give lawmakers a chance to address ballot questions through the legislative process.Ever since the Legislature switched to shorter sessions, all initiatives have ended up on the August ballot with plenty of time to spare before they would be kicked to the next race.This year is a little different.“There’s not a lot of wiggle room there,” says Libby Bakalar, an assistant attorney general with the Department of Law who specializes in election issues.Bakalar says if you look at a calendar, there are exactly 120 days between the April 20 adjournment date and the August 19 primary.“I guess without getting too close into the granular details of it, I would say that if it comes to pass that the Legislature does not adjourn on time, we’ll have to evaluate the state of the ballot at that point,” says Bakalar.The timing is a bit of a “when-the-stars-align” sort of thing. On top of the interplay between the constitutional rules for initiatives and the shortened legislative session, Gov. Sean Parnell last year succeeded in getting the primary date moved up one week, to the third Tuesday in August.That all adds up to a situation where if the Legislature goes even a minute beyond their scheduled closure, there’s a legal argument that initiatives on marijuana, the minimum wage, and the proposed Pebble mine should be put off until November. (If the Legislature gavels out on time but then convene in special session, the initiatives would not be bumped.)But Bakalar says a referendum repealing a law that caps the tax rate on North Slope oil at 35 percent would not get moved. As if the rules governing elections were not complicated enough, the Constitution differentiates between initiatives, which create laws, and referenda, which strike them down. Referenda get voted on during the first election held more 180 days from the session when the law was passed.“The referendum — the Senate Bill 21 referendum — will be on the primary ballot no matter what,” says Bakalar.So, what does this all mean, aside from a potential headache for the Division of Elections? Well, if you’re looking at a tight race, it could mean a lot.John Bitney managed Lisa Murkowski’s Senate campaign, and he knows firsthand how ballot questions can shape other races.“Well, in the 2010 primary, in addition of course to the U.S. Senate race, there was an initiative on the ballot that required parental [notification] for teenage girls to go get an abortion procedure,” says Bitney.Even though Murkowski supported the parental notification initiative, her opponent Joe Miller took a more conservative stance on abortion issues. Miller aligned himself with groups like Alaska Right to Life, which were already encouraging people to go out and vote for the initiative.“It really drove them to the polls,” says Bitney. “If they were in favor of it, they felt very strongly in favor of it. And therefore, it was a very high likelihood that they would show up on election day and cast a ballot.”In a major upset, Miller ended up beating an incumbent senator by just 2,000 votes. While Murkowski ultimately saved her seat through a write-in campaign, Bitney thinks that may have been avoided if the ballot composition had been different.“In hindsight, I think we probably should have paid a little closer attention to that issue going in,” says Bitney.This year, campaigners for and against the oil tax referendum are definitely paying attention to where the initiatives end up.Renee Limoge handles communications for the Alaska Support Industry Alliance, a trade association that opposes the referendum. She says she’ll be watching the scheduling of the initiatives because of how they might affect turnout.“Definitely, says Limoge. “Initiatives do bring people to the polls, and we’ve got quite a varying number. We watch that.”Referendum supporters also think the initiatives will drive voters — and that those voters will be sympathetic to their cause. Ray Metcalfe is one of the organizers behind “Vote Yes! Repeal the Giveaway,” and a former legislator. He says if the Legislature gavels out late, it could be a blow to the repeal campaign.“Oh, we’ll cry foul,” says Metcalfe.But Metcalfe says there’s a wrinkle. Right now, Republicans — who largely support the new oil tax law — are effectively in charge of adjournment because of their majority status. The Republican Party is also invested in beating Democratic incumbent Mark Begich in the Senate race, in keeping control of governor’s mansion, and maintaining dominance in the Legislature.Metcalfe thinks having initiatives that are seen as attracting more liberal-minded voters would not help those goals in the general election.“They probably are on a little bit of the horns of a dilemma, because you’re going to have more Democrats elected if those three initiatives are on the November ballot,” says Metcalfe.For their part, leadership in the Legislature has said they do not want to wrestle with that dilemma. Some members have said they do not want to get involved in anything voters might perceive as electioneering. After all, there’s a lot of work to do between now and the end of session, and there’s not extra time for political gamesmanship if people want to get out early.last_img read more

How to fix broken USB install damaging your Linux dual boot

first_imgHow to fix broken USB install damaging your Linux dual boot by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on February 07, 2018 in Linux – 9 commentsRather than a very straightforward tutorial type article, I thought I would tell you a true story of what happened to me immediately before writing this, and how I solved it.Tonight before I started working on some articles for Ghacks, I decided to wipe my current setup and install the latest version of Linux Mint Cinnamon edition, and see how she runs. This laptop currently has Windows 7 and Antergos dual-booted.I couldn’t find the usual flash drive I keep handy for firing LiveUSB’s up, so I grabbed another random one I had laying around, and I quickly popped open Rufus, made my USB, and booted into Mint. I noticed that the boot was a bit slower than it had been in the past, but I thought perhaps that might just be attributed to this version of Mint, no big deal, and moved on to continue with the installation.Once I got to the screen where it was time to partition my drive (I always do so manually), the installer told me that before I could continue with setting up my various partitions, the changes I had made thus far (selecting that I wanted to format the old partition. I hadn’t got to the part of selecting it yet for the new install) needed to be applied. No problem, I plan to wipe the partition anyway, so go ahead and get that part done …until the process is interrupted by the USB drive choking on itself. This resulted in an error of the installer, and a hung process. Upon rebooting and booting from the main drive, I was greeted with the GRUB crash / recovery terminal.This gave me an idea!I remembered that my other USB drive was in my backpack, and quickly dug it out to boot from it and see what might be on it – LXLE from a recent install I did on my cousins computer; however, not what I wanted.From here what I did, was boot off the USB that contained Linux Mint, into the live environment, before accessing the Windows partition on the laptop it was plugged into, and transferring the Linux Mint ISO to my home folder for convenience sake of typing the location into a terminal later. Once that was finished, I popped open a terminal, and checked what my USB drive I wanted to install Mint freshly onto (the one from my backpack) was mounted as: lsblkThis showed me that the 8gig flash drive, was mounted as /dev/sdbFrom here, I simply used the live environment, to make another liveUSB of mint, on the other drive:sudo dd if=/Path/to/Linux/Mint of=/dev/sdb bs=2MThis command copies the contents of the ISO into a proper and bootable format onto the USB stick I selected. The command will give no output when it is first issued, you need to sit and wait until the process is done (usually 1-5 minutes), and then finally an output will be given that the process is finished. Once so, you are free to reboot, unplug the buggy USB, and boot fresh from the other.This allowed me to install Linux Mint as intended, without losing anything on my Windows partition, and a fresh GRUB install as well.I hope my experience might help others stuck in a similar situation!SummaryArticle NameHow to fix broken USB install damaging your Linux dual bootDescriptionMike explains how he solved a Grub crash / recovery terminal issue on a dual boot Linux machine after using an USB installer to install a new Linux distribution on a device.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted approval for Phase B, which will evaluate the safety of these pacemaker systems during MRI scans including cardiac or thoracic spine scans.  The ProMRI clinical study aims to determine whether device patients can safely undergo full-body MRI scans, which can have negative effects on pacemakers and patients, and are therefore contraindicated for pacemaker patients. The study will recruit and evaluate 245 patients at 35 U.S. investigational centers. The ProMRI full-body scan expansion is designed to confirm the safety and efficacy of Biotronik’s existing dual- and single-chamber Entovis pacemaker systems and Setrox 53 and 60 cm leads during a MRI scan. Both devices are commercially available, but still await FDA approval for use in the MRI environment. Entovis devices include Biotronik Home Monitoring technology, which provides daily monitoring of the patient’s device and ability to provide physiological therapy via Biotronik Closed Loop Stimulation (CLS). The Setrox active-fixation pacing leads have a flexible distal end, fractal coating, and steroid elution to for handling and stable fixation, as well as electrical performance.

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Now that the dust has settled and the Arizona Cardinals have made all their selections in the 2011 NFL draft, it’s time to grade just how well they did. We here at ArizonaSports.com have assembled the usual suspects from our staff and Sports 620 KTAR’s to breakdown the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Cards eight selections. Mark AsherAfter this weekend’s NFL Draft I feel the Arizona Cardinals made themselves a better football team. I do have a few questions about a few of the picks and mainly because I thought they could have addressed a few important areas of need. I don’t like that they didn’t get a single offensive lineman in this draft. I am however pumped that they took Patrick Peterson. I guarantee that he is a pro bowler within two years. RB Ryan Williams shocked me mainly because there were so many good LB’s still on the board. My second favorite pick this weekend was the 4th round pick of Sam Acho from Texas. I think he will turn out to be a good one. Overall I give the draft a B plus. It would have been an A if they took at least one O-Lineman. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Final Grade: B+ Top Stories Final Grade: B+Tyler BassettThis draft by the Cardinals seemed different from the past because they went after the top players on their board rather than their biggest needs. With no free agency yet, I liked the strategy. They can work backwards and use free agency to fill their needs after now getting who they thought were the best players available to them regardless of position. If you get five of the top 60 players on your board and 136 players have been taken, it’s a great draft. Final Grade: For that, I give them an A-. Dave BurnsAm I grading the Cardinals on how they filled their needs? Because they didn’t. The Cardinals needed pass rushers, linebackers, offensive lineman, a tight end and a quarterback. They got a pass rusher and a linebacker later in the draft. A tight end I’ve never heard of. No offensive lineman, no quarterback. Or, am I grading the Cardinals on the talent they acquired, regardless of position (lookin’ at you Patrick Peterson)? That’s a different story and one that requires time. I liked the Sam Acho and the Quan Sturdivant picks but I hope they don’t live to regret not taking Brooks Reed in the second round instead of the curious case of Ryan Williams.center_img Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away 0 Comments   Share   Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Final Grade: I (Incomplete)Greg EspositoThe Arizona Cardinals treated the NFL draft with the same mentality a person treats a garage sale, searching for the best hidden value. Although they didn’t address the glaring need at quarterback and took a guy in Ryan Williams that will gain rushing yards in the second round instead of addressing their pass rushing needs, they got great talent that should help them moving forward. They claim in the first five rounds they got five guys in their top 60. That’s some impressive shopping. The most intriguing player of the group was Texas defensive end Sam Acho. He has a unique combination of athleticism and smarts as he graduated from Texas with 20 career sacks and a double major. The Cardinals draft, like Acho, wasn’t what you’d expect but should turn out to be pretty smart in the end.Final Grade: P+ for excellent potentialJohn GambadoroRead his full analysis here. Adam GreenAt first I was nervous the Cardinals would trade down from number five or use the pick to reach for positions of need. That they went with a best player available approach, need be damned, was as surprising as it was refreshing. Five win teams need to add plenty of talent, so I’m not worried about where they added it at. last_img read more

will lead to an increased skepticism among the voters and politicians on whom Trump depends Reams of social science long ago established that partisans tend to unconsciously overlook falsehoods that come from their own team while being outraged by the errors of their enemies But Trump’s excesses are exasperating even his fellow Republicans Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has stepped up his warnings about Trump’s tweeting telling one conservative outlet that it "takes attention away" from his party’s accomplishments Trump isn’t moved "Mitch is a wonderful man" the President told TIME "Mitch will speak for himself"But other Republican members of Congress have become more bold in voicing their concerns "There’s a lot of distractions" agrees Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas whose state gave Trump 56% of its votes "I just would say that truth is foundational It’s important in public life and all of us need to do what we can to tell it the way the facts are" Representative Carlos Curbelo of Florida agrees: "The White House and the President have to understand that there’s a cost to all of this This country needs a government that it can trust"Ultimately democracy needs facts to allow for public debate and provide a check on abuses of power "Truth has a despotic character" philosopher Hannah Arendt wrote in a 1968 essay on the subject "It is therefore hated by tyrants who rightly fear the competition of a coercive force they cannot monopolize" Although Trump is a tyrant only in the minds of his most fevered critics he often talks like one "Any negative polls are fake news" he tweeted in his third week on the job The Gallup daily tracking poll of Trump’s approval fell below 40% after the release of his Obamacare replacement billWith time Trump may find he has committed himself to a strategy that will deteriorate with reuse because with each passing month the American people will be gathering their own data on his habits and tactics and what they yield They will decide whether it’s true as Trump has promised that health care costs are lower and everyone has wonderful insurance They will fact-check his pledge of millions of new manufacturing jobs They will see whether their incomes rise and their taxes fall whether Mexico pays for a giant wall "In the end Presidents aren’t allowed to get away with excuses" explains Bill Galston a presidential scholar who worked in the Clinton White House "They pay a price for the promises they make" This is a truth that no one yet has been able to tweet awayBefore he got off the phone I tried one more time to get Trump to answer a question about the risk to his reputation caused by false and ever changing utterances Once again he would not accept the premise "Hey look" he said "I can’t be doing so badly because I’m President and you’re not" As a factual matter the last part of this statement is indisputably true And with that he graciously said goodbye and went back to running the affairs of the most

for candidates who were rescheduled for the UTME on Saturday May 26 The results can be assessed on JAMB portal- wwwjamborgng The Board’s Head of Media Dr Fabian Benjamin made the announcement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja The board had recently conducted a mop up examination for over 12 000 candidates in some of its centres across the country This included those whose biometrics could not be captured during the initial period of the UTME in March those who were yet to see their results and have not been involved in any form of malpractice Others included those who were unable to print out their e-slip before the earlier examinations and those whose centres were cancelled for suspected malpractices On the admission process Benjamin told NAN that the board frowned at some institutions that have breached the constitutional guidelines for the entire process by making advertorials before the policy meeting He explained that all institutions must note that they are not to make any form of adverts for admissions into their schools until after the policy meeting According to the spokesman this is because the meeting is the only authorised body that approves admission process for every preceding year “Advertising before the policy meeting is a violation and abuse of the entire process “They must recall that at the meeting all proceedings rules and regulations guiding the admissions are discussed and unanimously approved by all stakeholders “However a list of institutions that breached this rule are being compiled by the board and to be forwarded to the appropriate body for sanction” Benjamin added that in view of the above those who intend to make admission adverts before the slated meeting are urged to have a rethink and halt He also noted that the 2018 policy meeting of the education sector was coming early to allow institutions begin an early admission Wisely, said the time has come for the government to address their
