They also claim some of United’s squad celebrated his departure.Former United forward and 1999 treble hero Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed caretaker boss a day later – and led the side to a free-flowing 5-1 victory over Cardiff. last_img read more

The Hoover Dam of Beers: Boulder City Brewing

first_img The Best Drinks to Pair With Your Favorite Food Shows The Best Graphic Tee Companies to Liven Up Your Wardrobe The Best Coffee-Infused Beers to Flip All the Switches Why Vancouver and Tofino Should Be Your Introduction to Exploring British Columbia An Introduction to the Fine Sport of Bouldering Editors’ Recommendations Boulder Dam Brewing Company is located in, conveniently enough, Boulder City, Nevada, just down the road from Las Vegas. It’s a small town with a game-changing, almost-forgotten past: in the 1930s, it was the company town housing the men who built nearby Boulder Dam, better known as the Hoover Dam. Boulder City is a thriving little town, still home to many descendants of dam workers who take great pride in their history. And now take great pride in their hometown brewery, Boulder Dam Brewing Company.It’s a family business, started in 2007 when Todd Cook started the company after becoming addicted to brewing. A gifted home-brew kit, and a lifelong desire to brew, led him to his set up his dream in Boulder City. He and his family created Nevada’s only true beer garden, providing people a place to come together, drink local beers, listen to local music, and soak up the legacy of the dam that put this town on the map.So what’re these Boulderians drinking? Cook cleverly names his beers after job titles on the Hoover Dam construction site, suiting them to the flavors of the beer. He offers the Powder Monkey Pilsner, named for the explosives experts carving out tunnels, made of three hops for a flavorful, but not filling option. The High Scaler Pale Ale is, oh boy, quite hoppy and “bold,” much like the daredevils it’s named for: high scalers sat on small swings lowered over the canyon edge to chip away at the rock thousands of feet above the ground. Hell’s Hole Hefeweizen is named after a particularly hot and inhospitable area where workers lived, but in contrast, this hefe is delightful. It’s fruitiness is thanks to a strain of Bavarian yeast Cook chose. IPA more your style? Try the Dam Buster, which Boulder Brewing admits is not for your average beer drinker. They use around two pounds of hops per barrel of Dam Buster IPA. Two. Pounds. Their last offering is a stout named Chilly Jilly’s Espresso Stout, which you can probably guess has a coffee twinge to it. It’s thick and decadent, using four types of malt and fresh espresso shots from down the road at Chilly Jilly’s cafe. Can’t pick? Order the Six-Shooter for $10 and try all the current options.Their pub also mix up some blends, even offering up a “Rattlesnake Bite,” a mix of hard cider and the Powder Monkey Pilsner. In keeping with the snake theme, they also have the “Irish Rattler,” which is hard cider mixed with Oaked Black Canyon Stout, when available. But their real gift to beer drinkers? The “Golden Cream:” their Oaked Black Canyon Stout topped with vanilla ice cream. It’s so wrong and so, so right.For a dam(n) near perfect day, take a tour of Hoover Dam, then pop into Boulder Dam Brewing’s pub and drink up the delicious history.last_img read more

Titus Peters lay foundation for basketball managers

Mark Titus and Danny Peters are players on the Ohio State men’s basketball team not known for filling statistic columns. Still, even in their final seasons with the Buckeyes they have not forgotten how far they have come.Both Titus and Peters started out as basketball managers.At the start of their freshman year, they were not shooting any jump shots or even practicing with the team. They were busy filling up water bottles and handing out towels.During the ‘06-‘07 season, Peters and Titus were both asked to be a part of the team.Peters said it has been an amazing four years.“It is crazy to think how far Mark and I have come,” Peters said. “Playing on this team is a dream come true.”Titus is best known for his online blog, which has attracted nearly 2 million visitors.There is not much difference between the managers and the players, Titus said.“I’m just a little taller and a little more athletic,” Titus said.Freshman manager Weston Strayer, who has rebounded for both Titus and Peters during shooting drills, said he has a lot of respect for them.“They know their stuff and they have put their time in,” Strayer said. “They have earned the spot that they are in right now.”Junior manager Gage Will said the transition that Peters and Titus have made from managers to players is remarkable.“It’s pretty impressive that they started out as managers and became players,” Will said.“They are just overall good guys to have on the team. They are not going to play a whole lot but they have good morale.”Titus said he has a spot in his heart for the basketball managers. Being around Titus, who attempted to enter the NBA Draft as a joke early last spring, can be tough to deal with sometimes.“I jokingly blame stuff on them and pull pranks on them involving water bottles and towels,” Titus said. “They are not immune to my pranks.”Titus said that during the games the managers are always taking stats and doing things people wouldn’t think about.Will said the managers have become like a team themselves.“We work so closely together and a lot of our duties require teamwork,” he said. “Between the managers, there is a great sense of camaraderie and respect.”Will said great friendships have resulted and the experience is something he cherishes.“Being able to witness the NCAA Tournament atmosphere last year, even though we lost, was worth it,” he said. “It was an atmosphere unlike any other I’ve ever seen.”Strayer said watching the players practice has been his biggest shock.In Strayer’s playing days at Milan Edison High School, only one player could dunk. When he came to OSU, he realized how athletic the players were and that everybody could dunk.Strayer pursued a manager position, knowing he was not a Division I caliber athlete, to stay close to the game he always loved.“I hope it will help provide a coaching opportunity as a high school or collegiate coach down the road,” Strayer said.It is his dream to pursue a career involving basketball.“There [are] always the little things that not everyone knows about and I want to get those things down,” he said. “I want to start learning now, so there is less to learn later on.”Learning comes with a price.The price is rebounding and passing out water bottles and towels. It’s filming the game from the press box or setting down chairs during time outs.Strayer said it is worth doing all of the chores that come with the job, to listen, watch and learn from coach Thad Matta. read more

Alleyoop touchdown sparks OSU rout

He’s all about being at the right place at the right time, and Saturday’s 38-14 victory over the Nittany Lions was no exception for wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher. Sanzenbacher’s only catch of the game came with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s 58-yard pass, intended for wide receiver DeVier Posey, was deflected by the Nittany Lions’ double coverage and landed in the hands of Sanzenbacher as he crossed the goal line. “I expected (Posey) to go up and get it to be honest because I’ve seen him do it 1,000 times,” Sanzenbacher said. “I just wanted to put myself in position that if it didn’t happen maybe I could get a tip-off, and it came right to me.” Posey said he knew Sanzenbacher was on the route but didn’t know he was right next to him, he said. “I thought I came down with it, but the defensive player knocked it out,” Posey said. “I heard the roar and looked up and saw Dane with it in the end zone. I threw him an alley-oop today.” Sanzenbacher said, “I can’t take too much credit for it. It bounced right to me, so I mean, sometimes you get lucky I guess.” As the cliché goes, is it better to be lucky or good? Sanzenbacher said sometimes it’s better to be lucky. read more

ExPM causes waves in PASOK

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The appearance of former socialist Prime Minister George Papandreou at a book launch alongside Democratic Left (DIMAR) leader Fotis Kouvelis on Monday fueled upheaval within the ranks of beleaguered PASOK even though both Papandreou and PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos appeared to play down the potential impact of the move.Papandreou expressed surprise at the criticism prompted by his decision to attend the launch of a book by Marilena Koppa, a former MEP with PASOK and now a candidate on DIMAR’s ticket. He said he didn’t expect the discussion to “provoke such anticipation and concern.” The former premier noted that PASOK “should play a leading role in coalition governments but with a clear, progressive orientation,” a phrase reminiscent of Kouvelis’s rhetoric.For his part, Venizelos noted that the two coalition governments, set up in 2011 and 2012, in which PASOK participated were both progressive, the latter more so due to the fact that two center-left parties were involved, PASOK and DIMAR.Venizelos did not miss the opportunity to take a dig at his rival, who signed Greece’s first foreign bailout, referring to “a mistaken decision in the spring of 2010 for PASOK to shoulder the burden of the crisis alone.”Earlier in the day, Michalis Kassis, who in 2012 quit PASOK over austerity before rejoining the party, expressed his anger at Papandreou’s move. “He’s betrayed us all,” he said.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

This release… read more July 16, 2008 – Earlier this week President Bush vetoed the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (HR 6331) because it excluded a 10.6 percent pay cut to doctors who treat patients in the Medicare program. However, on July 15 the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate voted overwhelmingly voted to override the veto. The House overrode the veto by a margin of 383-41 and the Senate vote was 70-26.The bill was originally passed by the House of Representatives on June 24, and by the Senate July 9. Last December Congress froze reimbursement rates at the 2007 level for six months after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a list of lower proposed rates for 2008. The act includes an 18-month extension of the 2007 reimbursement rates and a 1.1 percent payment increase.The 10.6 percent physician payment cut called for by Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula was originally supposed to go into effect on July 1. The measure also eliminates a 5 percent cut that was set for Jan. 1, 2009.”It has been a long and winding road, but today we celebrate that Congress heard the voices of millions of patients and physicians and voted to override President Bush’s veto and protect the health of America,” said Nancy H. Nielsen, M.D., president of the American Medical Association. “The 10.6 percent cut in payments to physicians who treat Medicare patients would have been devastating to seniors and the disabled who rely on Medicare for the health care they need, as well as to military families who rely on TRICARE for their healthcare.”She said the congressional debate underscores the need for lawmakers to permanently replace the flawed Medicare physician payment formula so physicians can focus on taking care of patients.”We are encouraged that this bill stops Medicare cuts for the next 18 months and gives physicians a 1.1 percent payment update to help payments keep up with the increasing cost of providing health care to seniors,” Dr. Nielsen said. “Current Medicare payments to physicians are about what they were in 2001, while the cost of running a medical practice has increased substantially.”The legislation calls for providers of advanced diagnostic imaging services (MR, CT, PET, and nuclear medicine) to be accredited in order to receive payment for the technical component of those services. The bill also establishes a two-year voluntary demonstration program to test the use of physician developed appropriateness criteria.”The final passage of this bill is a victory for medicine, radiology and all our patients,” stated James H. Thrall, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Board of Chancellors. “Not only did this congressional action end the specter of a 10.6 percent cut for all physicians, it also included the provisions of mandatory accreditation for those who perform advanced imaging services, and an appropriateness criteria pilot program to help physicians prescribe the most appropriate imaging exam. The College advocated strongly for these provisions. On behalf of ACR, I would like to extend a sincere thanks to those House and Senate members who voted to override the veto and support patients and the physicians who treat them.”The American Public Health Association (APHA) also applauded the House and Senate for overriding the president’s veto of a Medicare bill that would improve access to preventive services and strengthen low-income protections against rising Medicare costs. “This bill is a victory for our nation’s seniors and individuals with disabilities,” said Georges C. Benjamin, M.D., FACP, FACEP (E), executive director of APHA. “It provides those enrolled in the Medicare program with improved and affordable preventive and mental health benefits and also ensures they have access to the providers they need.”Nearly every health lobby in Washington, D.C supported the bill. The only lobby groups opposing the bill’s passage were those supported by health insurance providers.The bill contains a number of important provisions, including an extension of expiring provisions that boost payments in rural areas, bonuses for quality reporting, a phase-out of higher co-pays for mental health services, an expansion of the medical home demonstration project and increased payments for anesthesia teaching programs.For more information: www.apha.org, www.ama-assn.org, www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

Users don’t even have to sign up for a Kite account The decision to go cloudless was based on two major reasons. First, it hampered the latency. It was impossible to provide low-latency completions when the intelligence lived in the cloud. Running locally, Kite works extremely fast regardless of the internet connection. Security and privacy are major concerns when working on the cloud. Users are often uncomfortable with code leaving their computer and worried about data breaches. Going local allowed them to keep their codebases on their own computers. Kite has also optimized its Python analysis engine and AI models to work with the resource constraints of users’ computers. For existing Kite users, Kite has been auto-updated to work locally. If a user has previously uploaded code to their servers, they can remove data via Kite’s web portal. Line-of-Code completions Apart from this new funding and local computation, Kite also comes with Line-of-Code completions which make Kite predict several “words” of code at a time. The AI software generally predicts the next several code elements a user is likely to type. At times, it can also predict full lines of code. Some developers also wanted Kite to support Linux and other programming languages. However, the team at Kite has clarified that it is not yet available. “It’s taken us longer to work on these than we originally hoped. Because we’re a small team of about 15 people, we decided (with real regret) that it didn’t make sense to expand our addressable market when our core product still needed work.” reads their blog post. Kite is also updating its privacy policy. Here’s a snapshot from Hacker News. “We collect a variety of usage analytics that helps us understand how you use Kite and how we can improve the product. These include: Which editors you are using Kite with Number of requests that the Kite Engine has handled for you How often you use specific Kite features e.g. how many completions from Kite did you use Size (in number of files) of codebases that you work with Names of 3rd party Python packages that you use Kite application resource usage (CPU and RAM) You can opt-out of sending this analytics by changing a Kite setting (https://help.kite.com/article/79-opting-out-of-usage-metrics). Additionally, we collect anonymized “heartbeats” that are used to make sure the Kite app is functioning properly and not crashing unexpectedly. These analytics are just simple pings with no metadata, and as mentioned, they’re anonymized so that there’s no way for us to trace which users they came from. We also use third party libraries (Rollbar and Crashlytics) to report errors or bugs that occur during the usage of the product. What we don’t collect Contents (partial or full) of any source code file that resides on your hard drive Information (i.e. file paths) about your file system hierarchy Any indices of your code produced by the Kite Engine to power our features – these all stay local to your hard drive” Read the full information on Kite’s blog.

Flickr says Creative Commons photos wont be subject to 1000 picture limit

first_imgOn November 1st, 2018 Flickr announced that they would be limiting free accounts to just 1,000 pictures. But it recently made an exception: that it would be deleting any pictures on accounts over that number, and any Creative Commons licensed photos uploaded before the November 1st, 2018 deadline would be allowed to stay. Last Friday, the company made the policy permanent — all Creative Commons photos will be allowed on Flickr for good, regardless of upload date, even on accounts that otherwise would have surpassed the 1,000 picture limit. In light of this change, Flickr also removed the ability to change licenses on photos on the site in bulk. This makes it difficult for users to just hit a button and circumvent the 1,000 picture limit. That’s for good reason, too. The company says it wants users to think about and understand the consequences of making a photo open to use by anyone with Creative Commons licensing before they just flip the switch to avoid the limit. It’s unclear if users already at the 1,000 photo limit will be able to upload new Creative Commons photos past that, but that seems to be what Flickr is implying. Additionally, Flickr is adding “In memoriam” accounts to users that have passed away, which will lock the account and preserve all the pictures on it. It is available for Pro users too who would be over the 1,000 picture limit when their subscription inevitably lapses. For this Flickr has put up a page to submit accounts which can be memorialized. Upon receiving a request on the page they evaluate the account if it qualifies to be memorialized. And then the account’s username will be updated to reflect the “in memoriam” status and login for the account will be locked to prevent anyone from signing in. Lastly, Flickr also announced that it will finally be removing the last major vestige of the company’s former Yahoo stewardship. They have decided to to do away with the mandatory Yahoo login requirement, and will also transition existing accounts away from Yahoo over the next few weeks.

IVF Watch InterAmerican Court of Human Rights demands answers from noncompliant Costa

first_imgThe Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) has ordered representatives of the Costa Rican government to appear at a hearing regarding the country’s noncompliance with a 2012 court ruling calling for the legalization of in vitro fertilization. Government representatives must attend the hearing at the San José-based court at 3 p.m. on September 3.Costa Rica is (still) the only country in the Western Hemisphere to ban IVF.Attorney Hubert May Cantillano, who represents plaintiff couples, said he received a request from the court to attend a hearing to discuss the government’s report on its efforts – or lack thereof.“Two years and five months have passed since the government was notified of the ruling. They [officials] need to provide clear and updated information on their compliance with measures taken to implement, as soon as possible, IVF procedures in the country,” May said.He also said that despite obstacles faced in the Legislative Assembly, the government is obliged to report on whether or not they are making progress, as well as any other legal options available to reinstate the procedure.“The hearing will allow victims to speak and the court to respond” to the government’s report, May added.Plaintiffs last May presented President Luis Guillermo Solís with a draft of an executive decree to reinstate IVF in the country as an alternative to a bill currently under discussion in the Assembly. That bill has long been stalled. Solís at the time said the country would comply with the court ruling within six months.The court in December 2012 condemned Costa Rica for its ban on in vitro fertilization and ordered the country to legalize the practice — outlawed in 2000 by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court — within one year. But officials have failed to meet all of the deadlines set by the court, which Costa Rica fought for years to have located in its own capital.The ruling demanded the state indemnify all of the couples who filed the lawsuit in amounts ranging from $5,000-$20,000 each.

Tokyo tantalises tastebuds in Sydney

first_img“Our food is a huge part of Japanese cultural identity and we introduce people to our culture through our food,” Ms Maeda said. Discover the taste of Tokyo for yourself, during Tokyo Lunch at participating restaurants until 25 February 2014. With its centuries old cooking techniques, seasonal produce and beautiful, artisan presentation, it’s not surprising that Japan’s cuisine has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage item. “There is so much more to Japanese food than just sushi… Tokyo in particular has its own specialities and most people don’t realise the abundance of diversity we have when it comes to food, not to mention the affordability and accessibility,” TMG director city sales tourism division Chitose Maeda told ETB News. Sydneysiders will have the opportunity to explore the diverse and unique taste of Tokyo this summer, thanks to a new initiative launched by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG).center_img “Japanese people are very connected to nature and the seasons and this is clearly reflected in the food, with cherry blossoms used in the spring time, while dumplings represent the autumn full moon… these traditions are passed down through many generations.” Teaming up with eight of Sydney’s finest Japanese restaurants, TMG established the project to promote the diversity, uniqueness and affordability of Tokyo’s cuisine.

The Kyler Murray debate used to be will he play f

first_imgThe Kyler Murray debate used to be; will he play football or baseball?Fast forward to the NFL Combine and it’s not a matter of what sport he’ll play now (sorry, Oakland Athletics), but where.Do the Arizona Cardinals pull the trigger with the Oklahoma signal caller in the 2019 NFL Draft or stand pat with their incumbent QB in Josh Rosen?If Murray is truly their guy, and Rosen isn’t, ESPN’s Mike Sando thinks it’s a move they need to take and not look back. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo It wasn’t entirely on Rosen, however.With an O-Line that saw more than eight different combinations and the only consistent in the trenches was rookie center Mason Cole — he never missed a snap — Rosen was hit more often than not, getting sacked 45 times.Josh Rosen sacked 45 times in 14 games, 1 of which he only played 1 drive. For some perspective on that, the #Redskins allowed 44 sacks total in 2018, and that was with 7 OL finishing on IR, including both starting guards, and Trent Williams missing 3 games, among other injuries— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 5, 2019Taking last season into account, the asking price for the quarterback — should he become available — has been a focal point with the draft quickly approaching.“I would think they would ask for a first-round pick and somebody might offer them a second and you go from there,” Sando said when asked what the Cardinals might get do in a potential deal. “Sometimes you see these deals happen where you give up something but you get something back too so maybe if someone gives a one maybe the Cardinals give back something else.“I’ve kinda have felt like it might a two. It’s an interesting conundrum because everyone would know that Arizona sorta has to move [Rosen] probably and it’s not like you’re selling high, it’s not like Rosen’s coming off this amazing season. You’d be giving him to another team that’s also operating on a position of need.” In an NFL landscape that’s adding more “college flavor,” as Sando put it, Arizona’s in the driver seat. But do the Cardinals decide to ride the new-age wave or stick to the more traditional route?We’ll find out soon enough. “If [Kliff Kingsbury] feels like he would be settling for Rosen and this is the one chance to get a guy that he’s on the record, before he had any connection to the Cardinals, as saying he would take first overall, if that’s not bluster and he feels that I think you’ve got to take the opportunity,” Sando told Bickley & Marotta on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station on Tuesday. “It’s not like Rosen was John Elway or Andrew Luck or No. 1 overall and we know for sure he’s going to be a top quarterback for a long time. We don’t really know that on Rosen.Related LinksPeter King: 3 reasons to believe in Kyler Murray the NFL quarterbackAs Kyler Murray talks loom for Cards, what is Josh Rosen’s trade value?Nick Bosa: Cardinals would be making ‘big mistake’ passing on meKyler Murray brings an attitude and edge to the 2019 NFL CombineThe recent history of DLs selected No. 1 overall in NFL Draft“It wasn’t like [Rosen] was No. 1 overall and he’s coming off an All-Rookie team year so I think you could easily justify, ‘hey we’ve got our coach, it’s a do-over, let’s start fresh, let’s get something for Rosen … and move on with our guy.’”Rosen’s rookie season was a rough one.After taking over the reins from Sam Bradford in Week 3, Rosen went on to start 13 games, going 3-10 over that span. The signal caller completed 55.2 percent of his passes for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He finished the season tied for fifth in interceptions thrown with Baker Mayfield and Jameis Winston, while he tied Marcus Mariota for 30th for touchdowns thrown.
