NCAA grants OSU safety Tyler Moeller sixth year

As the No. 9-ranked Buckeyes prepare for their matchup with Iowa on Saturday, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel had a different message for his team after practice Wednesday evening. The NCAA granted safety Tyler Moeller a sixth year of eligibility, Tressel announced to the team. Tressel “was like, ‘I found some good news’ and he was like, ‘Tyler Moeller got a medical redshirt and he has another year,’” Moeller told media about an hour after hearing the news. Moeller’s season ended for the second straight year when he tore his left pectoral muscle in the first half of OSU’s 24-13 win at Illinois on Oct. 2. Moeller missed the entire 2009 season after suffering a head injury when he was assaulted while vacationing in Florida. “I am excited,” Moeller said with a grin. “It’s great to have another year here, and my mind has been in 5 million different places for the past couple weeks. So it’s great to know that I have another year here and I have another chance to play.” Moeller said he wrote a letter pleading his case and had to file paperwork “a couple inches thick” before the NCAA finally ruled in his favor. “I put my feelings out there and explained my situation and asked them for another year,” he said. Despite the uncertainty, Moeller said he never lost faith. “With my kind of situation, you don’t know what’s going to happen, and there is a lot of ups and downs,” he said. “I just tried to keep my head up and always think that I was going to get another year, and everything worked out.” As for his injury, Moeller said he has been lifting with his legs and should be able to train his upper body soon. “It’s going well. I just talked to the doctor. I have been in a sling for six weeks and tomorrow I am going to start stretching it out and get a little motion,” he said. “They said in six weeks that I’ll have full range of motion and then I’ll start lifting again. So everything is on schedule and going as planned.” read more

Sarah Montague I was gobsmacked by BBC gender pay report

first_imgHost of BBC's Today programme John Humphrys  Host of BBC’s Today programme John Humphrys earns more than Sarah Montague, who has presented for two decades Sarah Montague, the BBC Radio 4 Today presenter, has attacked the corporation’s gender pay report and said its findings are “very hard to believe”.Montague said she was “gobsmacked” by the claim that the gender pay gap for presenters and journalists is only 6.8 per cent, well below the national average.And she said highlighting the pay disparity on the Today programme was worth some “awkwardness” in her relationship with colleague John Humphrys, who earned £600,000-£649,999 last year while she earned less than £150,000 per year.When the BBC was forced in July to publish its list of star names paid £150,000 and above, there was surprise that Montague’s name did not feature. She has presented the Today programme for nearly two decades.Nick Robinson, who joined the programme in 2015, earned £250,000-£299,999. Mishal Husain, who also appears on the BBC’s television news bulletins, received £200,000-249,999. Yet the PwC report commissioned by the BBC delivered the headline finding that there was “no evidence of gender bias in pay decision making”, and said the pay gap was small.Montague, who has remained largely silent on the issue since the pay disclosures in July, said: “There is a problem. I was gobsmacked when I saw the suggestion from PwC that in the on-air presenting group [the pay gap] was only 6.8 per cent.“I find that very hard to believe. I’d love to know who was in the group, who they were looking at, who was excluded and how they did the metrics of it. I’d just love to know that.”Of her own situation, Montague told Radio Times: “I’ve got daughters. When I was 20 I wouldn’t have in a million years thought I could be in the situation I was in last July, when I discovered what I discovered about my pay.”It was “a massive shock” to discover she is paid so little in relation to Humphrys, whose salary also includes his work presenting Mastermind. He recently agreed to accept his third pay cut, giving up around £150,000.Montague said: “I’m 51 now – 30 years ago I never thought I could be in this situation. If I want to nail this for my daughters, then some awkwardness now is worth it.” The BBC Women group, a coalition of presenters and journalists, has rejected the PwC report, saying: “There has been no transparency on which individuals were included, or why. The BBC has chosen who to compare with whom and what factors justify any gaps in pay.”PwC said its report looked at the pay of 824 people who appear on television and radio news programmes, and assumed that people sharing job titles within particular career bands were performing “like work”.But the consultancy firm also relied on the BBC to explain away pay disparities, and took the corporation at its word when it provided “non-gender related reasons” for men earning more than women.Lord Hall, the director-general of the BBC, appeared before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee on Wednesday to discuss the report’s findings.Julian Knight, Conservative MP for Solihull, described the report’s line claim to have found no evidence of gender bias as “the worst get-out-of-jail card I’ve ever seen”. Show more A BBC spokesman said: “The review by PwC was thorough and followed the methodology to reviewing equal pay that is set out by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.”As we said earlier in the week we’ve had 230 individual cases of pay unfairness and equality raised by women and men since July and are seeking to deal with them as quickly as possible – we’ve already addressed close to half.”We’ve also set out proposals for a clear and transparent pay framework so people will be able to see the pay range for their job and have information to know where they stand in comparison to others to ensure a fairer, equal BBC.”last_img read more

Volvo CE revealing results from world first Electric Site at Skanska Vikan

first_imgSince the end of August, Volvo CE and its customer Skanska have been testing the viability of the Electric Site research project at Skanska’s Vikan Kross quarry, near Gothenburg, Sweden, which is being visited by IM this week, and will be the subject of a special report in our January 2019 issue. The project is testing the world’s first ‘emission-free’ quarry and aims to transform the quarry and aggregates industry. It involves electrifying each transport stage in a quarry – from excavation to primary crushing, and transport to secondary crushing – and aims to reduce carbon emissions by up to 95% and total cost of operations by up to 25%. The system incorporates electric and autonomous prototype Volvo CE machines: eight HX2 autonomous, battery-electric load carriers, a 70t dual-powered, cable-connected EX1 excavator and the LX1 electric hybrid wheel loader.The prototypes at the Electric Site are part of ‘Volvo Concept Lab’. This is a Volvo Group initiative that is designed to showcase innovative concepts, ideas and research and development projects that meet customers’ future needs. At this stage, the machines and technology involved in the electric site solution are part of a research project and are still not yet commercially available.As well as new machines, it also involves new work methods and site management systems which together, form a complete site solution. New technology encompasses machine and fleet control systems and logistic solutions for electric machines in quarries. The system’s efficiency, safety and environmental benefits are huge and are set to impact both customers and society at large. At this stage, the machines and technology involved in the electric site solution are part of a research project and are not commercially available. “The electrification of construction equipment willproduce cleaner, quieter and more efficient machines – this represents the future of our industry,” says Melker Jernberg, President, Volvo Construction Equipment. “Skanska has high ambition when it comes to achieving a climate neutral construction industry. But we cannot do this alone. Partnerships like the Electric Site are the way forward,” says Anders Rehnström Executive Vice President Skanska Sweden and President Skanska Industrial Solutions.Eight prototype HX2 autonomous, battery-electric load carriers are part of the electric site solution. The prototypes use a lithium ion battery to power two electric motors which drive the machine. The hydraulics are driven by an additional electric motor. The HX2 is a second-generation concept machine, which incorporates shared technologies and components from the Volvo Group. The machine is fitted with a vision system, which allows it to detect humans and obstacles in its vicinity. It can follow an adjustable, pre-programed GPS path.The LX1 is Volvo CE’s prototype electric hybrid wheel loader. The machine can deliver up to a 50% improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as significant reductions in emissions and noise pollution compared to its conventional counterparts. The LX1 is a series hybrid that incorporates a driveline that consists of electric drive motors mounted at the wheels, electric-driven hydraulics, an energy storage system, a significantly smaller diesel engine and new machine architecture, including a new design of the lifting unit. It’s this combination that enables the substantial gain in fuel efficiency. The prototype – which has 98% new parts and a fundamentally new machine design – can do the work of a wheel loader that’s one size larger.The EX1 is a 70-ton dual-powered, cable-connected excavator prototype. The base machine for the 70 t EX1 is a Volvo EC750 crawler excavator that has been upgraded to incorporate an electricmotor in addition to the diesel engine. When it’s plugged into the grid, the EX1 is a zero-emission excavator. If the cable is connected, the machine will automatically start in electric mode. If it’s not, it will start in diesel mode. The EX1 is operated in exactly the same way as a conventional Volvo excavator.The machines being used as a part of Volvo Construction Equipment’s electric site research project are controlled by a site management system called Site Assist. Site Assist has three main functions. Firstly, it controls the overall operation at the Electric Site. This involves, for example, choosing which automated machines should be active and what the different machines should do.Secondly, Site Assist provides insight into production KPIs, such as how much material is being produced. Lastly, the system acts as the integration point of data between all the various units and systems being used on site. Together, these functions enable Site Assist to coordinate the operations.The Site Assist system consists of several subsystems with different purposes. One subsystem is the user interface, which the site operator uses to decide which production steps of the site should be active. The user interface is also used to visualise site information, enabling the site operator to run the site in the best possible way. Other important subsystems are the fleet and traffic control modules. The fleet and traffic control modules ensure that the machines are doing the right things in the right spot, and that they maintain sufficient distance from one another throughout the different work steps. This helps to ensure safety on site. Finally, there are also subsystems in the different machines. One such subsystem is Co-Pilot, which is used in the excavator and wheel loader to send and receive information about the site production, and command the automated haulers to move to desired locations. Thanks to Site Assist, the autonomous machines can share information with one another (eg where they want the others to be) and work together as a fleet. This enables continuous extraction of gravel from the quarry pit, which results in more efficientequipment flow, improved cost efficiency and time savings on site.“The Site Assist system we’ve developed, which is partly based on Co-Pilot, enables the machines to work together as a fleet, loading, unloading and charging in a cyclical fashion,” says Johan Sjöberg, system owner for site management and automation for Volvo CE. “It is one of the most important pieces in the complete system. It plays a central role in ensuring that the goals we have on site are fulfilled.”last_img read more

Hasselbeck said that shouldn’t be an issue.“I understand you made moves to go get Kevin Kolb, but youmay see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity to getPeyton Manning,” he said. It would be, but so far the opportunity has yet to presentitself.

Laucala Island is an exclusive South Pacific playg

first_imgLaucala Island is an exclusive South Pacific playground of just 12 square kilometres, comprising 25 private villas and residences, the largest being a 10,000sqm compound, the Hilltop Estate. Each villa comprises one to three bedrooms, with a mirrored design that sees all the features of inside (such as a living room and a dining room) replicated outside. Four hundred staff attend to the needs of only 25 villas, 95 per cent of whom are local Fijians. Laucala’s mission is to guide, assist and help each staff member grow in his or her career. The island brings a new definition to all-inclusive, too, where even high-end wines, golf, horse riding and journeys aboard the submarine are included in the one rate. At just four hours from Sydney, Australia is Laucala’s second most important market.Under the stewardship of Red Bull baron, Dietrich Mateschitz, Laucala is committed to an organic approach, and 85 per cent of what is consumed by the island comes from the island. There are beehives, a vanilla plantation and a coffee plantation alongside organic farms and a hydroponic garden, producing not just food for its five restaurants, but also sun lotions, spa products, bathroom products and candles. The 18-hole championship golf course is partly set within an established coconut plantation. There is also a 97ha farm devoted to full-blood Wagyu and Limousin cattle, wild goats, quails, three breeds of chicken, two breeds of pig and sheep.Following Cyclone Winston on 20 February, a Category 5 severe tropical cyclone and the strongest ever recorded on land in Fiji, Laucala closed to repair the significant damage caused to its immaculate and extensive landscaping. Thanks to recent rains, the grounds have now bounced back well and is ready to welcome back the island’s discerning guests. In addition to the luxuries Laucala is known for, the island will also be introducing a dedicated kids’ programme as well as family packages to help well-heeled tribes bond in one of the world’s most unique and luxurious paradises. To celebrate the reopening of Laucala Island, Fiji on 1 July 2016, Marketing Manager, Christoph G. Ganster, and Director of Sales & Marketing, Edvena D’Souza, hosted an intimate lunch for media guests at Chiswick in Woollahra. Matt Moran’s casual dining concept and kitchen garden showcase shares the same sustainability ethos as Laucala Island, where Australian-born Chef Anthony Healy is an advocate of paddock-to-plate dining. Together they collaborated on a menu of classic Chiswick dishes inspired by elements of Laucala Island and its signature dishes. Guests, including LATTE, enjoyed an autumn collective sharing menu of delicacies such as Fijian kokoda; yellowfin tuna on a squid ink cracker with avocado and pickled ginger; wood-roasted Moran family lamb, zucchini and pine nut; and a delicious pavlova with yoghurt mousse and rhubarb ripple.last_img read more

Liquidators appointed to Cyprus Airways

first_imgAvgoustinos Papathomas and David Dunckley, financial advisers, have been appointed as liquidators for the now defunct Cyprus Airways (CY), creditors and shareholders decided during an assembly on Friday.The assembly was eventful, according to the Cyprus News Agency. It reported that former workers and shareholders protested the decision, claiming the whole procedure was a sham. Both the workers and the investors present at the meeting stormed out of the auditorium, shouting at the panel comprised of government officials, the report said.CY private investors are in the process of suing the company, claiming that the airline’s closure by the government has cost them not only the capital they poured in but also deprived them of any right to recover their investment.Polis Polyviou, the legal representative for Cyprus Airways responded that the only authority that could proclaim the assembly illegal were the courts.Cyprus Airways is 93 percent owned by the state, the rest is owned by some 4,000 private investors. The former national carrier was grounded in January, after the EU Commission issued a ruling ordering the company to return some €66 million it had received in state aid in 2012.The assembly also appointed a committee to oversee the liquidation process, comprised of three officials from the office of the Accountant-general and two representatives from the workers’ unions.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
