first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Font declares Barcelona board lacks leadershipby Paul Vegas25 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePotential Barcelona president candidate Victor Font has declared the board lacks leadership.Font is in the process of securing his formal candidacy.And he told AS: “I have the impression, because I am not inside, that there is a lack of institutional leadership in the those responsible and that has resulted in a situation that is difficult to understand from the outside.”I think they should talk to each other. But there should be more leadership. It is difficult to say with a cause when you’re away but I think it is important that there is leadership in the management of the dressing room I am convinced that there are no dictatorships of the dressing room, but lack leadership in the locker room.”What is observed from the outside is a lack of leadership of the president and the board of directors.” last_img read more

North Sea Clothing Will Make You Style’s Master & Commander

first_imgVintage clothing collector-turned-designer Neil Starr boasts one of the most covetable collections of vintage Barbour and Belstaff wax jackets in the world. But it was his love of a particular vintage military-issue sweater model, the Submariner, which prompted this London-based bloke to create his own menswear collection, North Sea Clothing. Offering contemporary clothes (and now shoes) inspired by retro classics, his need-to-know label masterfully serves them up with simple, effective details and fits that are more modern and slim than the antiquated original gems on which they’re based.“I will only design and produce an item that I would want to wear myself,” says Starr, whose highly wearable wares are sold directly on the brand’s online shop and in better specialty boutiques across the globe. The collection’s prices range from a T-shirt for  £50 (approx. $70) to a cardigan for  £275 (approx. $390).Here, “North Sea Neil” explains how and why his still small, hands-on family venture has emerged as a truly shipshape standout in the oft-murky ocean of present-day fashion labels….What is the history of North Sea Clothing?North Sea Clothing began around a decade ago. It existed for several years making just one jumper, the Submariner. In my background as a vintage dealer, I used to sell many original Royal Navy war-issue Submariners. More importantly, I would wear them too. When these originals dried up, I decided to re-create it, with the same wool and the same specifications as the original design. I came up with the brand name after a nickname I had been given, North Sea Neil, in light of my winter uniform, the original Submariner with a vintage Royal Navy Patrol coat. I created the logo, combining the iconic diver’s helmet with fish emblems, inspired by London lampposts, alluding to the brand’s home, London.What is your design background?I have always worked with clothes. My first job as a kid was in the local men’s clothing store in the village I grew up in, outside London. There I cultivated my tastes and moved into the vintage scene soon after. I started wearing, collecting and then selling vintage clothes, and developed a successful career selling vintage clothing and accessories for many years. I regularly sold at London’s Portobello Market, quickly garnered a reputation, and began selling around the world – to the States and Japan in particular. High fashion labels would buy from my vintage selections and I realized I had an “eye” for design that seemed to come naturally.How has the brand evolved since you first started with the Submariner?I started with the intention to make just the Submariner and this was the case for several years. It was genuinely customer demand that pushed me on to design and develop new styles. So I developed the Expedition Shawl collar, which was almost as popular, and propelled the brand into another market. Once I found myself in the “fashion” market (which is not our only market, I hasten to add), I discovered the industry demand to create something new each season. So, this we do. But, we will always make our classic styles, and we will not dilute our aesthetic, even if it means creating less products.How would you describe the essence and aesthetic of NSC?NSC has a rugged and practical aesthetic. The roots of most styles come from vintage inspiration, but the functionality in contemporary use must always equal the design.What are some of your key pieces?The Submariner emulates the Royal Navy issue sweaters. The Expedition is a style that motorcyclists adopted to wear under their wax jackets in the 1950s. The Service Jumper hints to the wax jacket styling with its shoulder and elbow patches. These sell well to the motorcycle scene today. And the Engineer V neck is our version of a vintage ’50s mechanic sweater.What are the current bestsellers?Now we are moving into spring/summer, our plimsolls are possibly our bestselling item and The Marine shoes are proving really popular. Although this is closely followed by our ¾ sleeve henley T-shirts. The unusual sleeve length has attracted that market that is looking for a good basic with a slightly more interesting silhouette.What sets NSC apart from other brands?We produce a small range of products, and we make them well. While our range has [recently] expanded from knitwear into some spring/summer products, even these are a niche range, and produced in a limited color palette, navy blue and ecru.Our broad spectrum of customers also sets us apart. Yes, we are in the fashion market, but we also sell to a fantastic selection of what I call “good stores.” They don’t need something new every season. Their customers are discerning about what they buy; the quality, the fit. They are grown-up men who know exactly what they want and when they find the perfect garment they buy one in every color.Who are your customers specifically?Our distinct silhouettes have attracted the fashion market while the genuine warmth and usefulness has attracted many more: explorers, mountain climbers, fisherman, dads and sons. Our customers are young and old, large and small. We make our jumpers in a wide range of sizes to cater to all of them.Where are the pieces manufactured? All our knitwear is made in the UK, with British wool. This is very important and what gives our knits their distinctive feel. We have gone to Europe for the production of our plimsolls, as nowhere can vulcanize rubber in the UK. Our T-shirts are now made in Portugal. We feel strongly about keeping all of our production in Europe.What’s next for the brand?We are working on a small range of swimwear to expand our spring/summer line. Being known as a “winter brand” we are working hard to create spring/summer garments with as much quality and integrity as our knitwear. So far we seem to be doing very well.

Canada Post strike talks lag as deadline looms

first_imgCanada Post and the union representing Canadian mail carriers remain miles apart in contract talks as a strike deadline looms less than two weeks away.The Canadian Union of Postal Workers posted its contract proposals on its website Friday, showing a demand for 3.5 per cent annual wage increases over the life of an agreement for both rural and urban postal workers. On September 7, Canada Post offered wage hikes of 1.5 per cent a year.Postal workers will be in a legal strike position and Canada Post could lock out its employees as of September, 26 after CUPW’s 42,000 urban members and 8,000 rural carriers voted in favour of job action to back contract demands.CUPW also wants hourly pay rates for rural and suburban carriers equivalent to what urban letter carriers are paid, along with better job security and minimum guaranteed hours proposals that the union said have so far been flatly rejected by Canada Post.Where there might be room for agreement falls under the notion of expanding services at the Crown Corporation.The union wants Canada Post to offer financial or community banking services something the post office provided decades ago as well as expanded postal services for Indigenous communities and broadband internet.last_img read more

Civilian casualties continue to rise in Yemen warns UN human rights office

“All incidents resulting in civilian casualties […] must be thoroughly investigated to ensure accountability when breaches of international law have been found to have taken place,” Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson for UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, told a news briefing in Geneva. She said 19 civilians were killed in Taiz between 21 May and 6 June. According to witnesses interviewed by the High Commissioner’s Office (OHCHR), the victims were hit by shelling attacks by a group affiliated with the Houthis rebels. Seven civilians were killed reportedly as a result of mortar attacks from areas controlled by fighters affiliated with forces loyal to President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.She went on to say that at least 23 civilians were killed on 17 June by an airstrike, helicopter attack and shelling on a house and nearby market area located just a few hundred metres from the Yemeni-Saudi border in Shada District in Sa’ada Governorate.Since March 2015, OHCHR has recorded a total of 13,504 civilian casualties, including 4,971 killed and 8,533 injured.“We recall that indiscriminate or disproportionate attacks, or attacks targeting civilian objects such as markets, are prohibited under international humanitarian law,” Ms. Shamdasani said, reminding all parties to the conflict of their obligation to ensure full respect for international human rights and humanitarian laws.On cholera, she said the outbreak of disease has affected eight prisons and detention centres in six governorates. Some 50 prisoners have contracted cholera and there are 72 other suspected cases. “In the best of circumstances, prisoners are among the most vulnerable members of society,” she said. read more

Opinion 5 takeaways from Ohio States win over Rutgers

Redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall (17) reaches for a pass from redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) during OSU’s 56-17 win against Rutgers on Oct. 18 at Ohio Stadium.Credit: Jon McAllister / Asst. photo editorThe Ohio State Buckeyes jumped out to a 35-7 halftime lead Saturday, en route to a 56-17 drubbing of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.And beyond just a victory, the Buckeye offense collected another record-setting performance by racking up more than 500 yards for the fourth straight game.The Lantern sports editors compiled a list of five things we learned from the Buckeye victory.1. J.T. Barrett could be best in the Big TenComing into the season, senior quarterback Braxton Miller and Penn State sophomore gunslinger Christian Hackenberg were thought to be the class of the Big Ten quarterbacks.But eight weeks into the season, Barrett seems to be heads and tails over any quarterback in the conference.The redshirt-freshman from Wichita Falls, Texas, leads all Big Ten quarterbacks in completion percentage, touchdown passes and quarterback rating and has not thrown an interception since Sept. 13 against Kent State.Not too bad for a guy who was the third string quarterback to start fall camp.If Barrett continues to impress with his play, there is a good chance he could unseat Miller as the Big Ten offensive player of the year.2. The offensive line is dominatingAfter being embarrassed against Virginia Tech in the second game of the season, the Buckeye offensive front has been making opposing defenses look silly.Since the loss to the Hokies in which the Buckeyes totaled just 108 rushing yards, OSU is averaging 314.25 yards per game on the ground.In addition, the Buckeye line has allowed just five sacks in four games since the Virginia Tech game, when Barrett was sacked seven times.OSU coach Urban Meyer has said this year that the Buckeyes are an offensive line driven team, and it has shown the last four weeks.3. Secondary improving, but yet to be testedWhile the OSU secondary held Rutgers to just 196 yards passing, how much stock can we put into the Buckeyes’ performance?Yes, Gary Nova threw for more than 400 yards against Michigan, but this year’s Wolverines are not your traditional Big Ten power.The Buckeye secondary has yet to be tested, but will be on Saturday against Hackenberg and the Nittany Lions.Hackenberg leads the Big Ten in passing yards per game and Penn State is last in the Big Ten in total rushing.Needless to say, the Nittany Lions will be throwing early and often against the Buckeyes in what will likely be the first real test of the OSU secondary this season.4. Redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall has star potentialMarshall — a former high school quarterback — had to take some time before finding his role in OSU’s offense. On Saturday, that role become more defined than ever before.He is simply a playmaker for the Buckeyes and keeps on improving week to week. In OSU’s win against Rutgers, he totaled three receptions for a team-high 58 yards and returned four punts for 45 yards along with one kickoff return for another 26 yards. He ended up leading the game with 129 all-purpose yards, 22 ahead of Barrett.Marshall was expected to make contributions last season before ending up having to redshirt, but he’s proven so far this year that he can step up when his number is called. If he continues on the same kind of trajectory, he has a chance to become the most dangerous player on the Buckeyes’ offense along with the special teams units.5. And so does freshman linebacker Raekwon McMillanNot only does McMillan have star potential down the road, but he is quickly morphing into an important player this season.While he’s not a starter on OSU’s defense, his playing time has continued to increase week by week, and at times it seems like he is the more trusted option ahead of senior linebacker and incumbent starter Curtis Grant.McMillan totaled five tackles against Rutgers — tied for fourth on the team — and made his presence felt throughout the game. Grant, much like McMillan, is a former blue-chip prospect, but it’s starting to look like the younger of the two is ready to unseat the elder sooner than anyone expected.Regardless of Grant’s experience, look for McMillan to be starting games before this season comes to a close.The Buckeyes are set to hit the road on Saturday to take on Penn State in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

NY congressman wants 3Dprinted gun magazines banned

first_imgCongressman Steve Israel (D-NY) is taking the issue of gun-related legislation to the 21st century, by calling for a ban on 3D-printed magazines. No, not the Us Weekly kind — the kind that you attach to a firearm, such as a partially 3D-printed AR rifle.Congressman Israel plans to reveal a new version of the Undetectable Firearms Act, which bans guns that would be able to pass through an x-ray machine without being detected. Currently, the act is set to expire on December 9, 2013. It is expected that it will be renewed, but Israel wants to be sure a provision is added that concerns 3D-printed gun parts.Israel pointed to the group Defense Distributed, which recently created a 30-round ammunition magazine with a 3D printer, and successfully used it to chamber and fire 86 rounds. This is not the first time that guns and 3D printing have intertwined, but everything in this debate has been magnified over the course of the last month.The 3D-printed gun news comes on the heels of the Newtown, CT school shooting. Even though Israel’s official press release does not specifically mention this event, it likely sparked the Congressman’s interest in the subject, considering he represents the Tri-State area. This is the same event that caused 3D printing pioneer MakerBot to remove gun parts from Thingaverse, its 3D printing file repository.Israel said that allowing 3D printing of gun paraphernalia from home makes existing gun regulations almost useless. After all, if you do a Google search for 3D-printed magazines, you can find the Defense Distributed website and plans quite easily.According to the website’s founder, Cody Wilson, the printable magazine files have been downloaded more than 2200 times. In true Streisand Effect fashion, Wilson noted that this new attention from Congressman Israel will only drive more attention to his website, and likely a proliferation of the files. He is not at all concerned about the threat of new legislation.last_img read more

Berbatov believes Man United should sign Marco Verratti

first_imgMarco Verratti would be a great coup for the Manchester United midfield, says former striker Dimitar Berbatov.The Italian midfielder has been starring at Paris Saint-Germain since 2012 following his transfer from boyhood club Pescara and impressed in their 2-0 Champions League win at United on Tuesday.Verratti has since notched up eight goals and 44 assists in 262 appearances across all competitions for PSG and has been regularly praised for his dribbling, reactions and ball control at the French capital.Aside from that, the 26-year-old’s excellent vision and passing skills has proven to an invaluable asset for PSG in search of goals down the years.Speaking on Verratti, Berbatov even went as far as claiming that the Italy international is up there with Barcelona icons Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta.The Bulgarian, who won two Premier League titles and scored 56 times in 149 games for United in a four-year spell, believes Verratti would be a great midfield partner for Nemanja Matic at United.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Marco Verratti was very impressive in the centre of the park for PSG,” Berbatov told Betfair.“What I like about him is that his first thought is always to go forwards, but if that’s not on, he’s happy just to keep the ball, controlling the tempo and almost putting the other team to sleep.“He is an unbelievable talent; he reminds me of Xavi and Iniesta in many ways.“He’d be great at United next to Matic in midfield, allowing the Serbian to do the dirty work while he controlled the game. I can’t see PSG selling though!”The Red Devils will be taking a trip to Stamford Bridge on Monday for a fifth-round FA Cup tie against Chelsea as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men look to return to winning ways.A Premier League showdown with old rivals Liverpool then awaits them at Old Trafford next Sunday.BELGRADE, SERBIA – DECEMBER 11: Marco Verratti of Paris Saint-Germain in action during the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain at Rajko Mitic Stadium on December 11, 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Alaska Aerospace Corporation launches subsidiary with focus on satellites

first_imgAlaska Aerospace Corporation launch facility in Narrow Cape. (Photo courtesy of Alaska Aerospace Corporation)The Alaska Aerospace Corporation launched a subsidiary, Aurora Launch Services, which will focus on providing support for customers to launch vehicles with smaller satellite payloads into orbit.Listen nowCraig Campbell, President and CEO of AAC, says it will also be cheaper because they won’t use state employees anymore, instead hiring contractors for services on demand.“Now, you’re only paying for the launch services when you need the launch services,” Campbell said. “So, one of the problems we’ve had in the past, or one of the costs we’ve had in the past, has been keeping a large employee force paid on payroll, even when we had no launches. Now you’re only paying for the launch services when you have a customer that is going to launch from your facilities.”Campbell says the company is wholly owned by AAC. After its 2014 launch failure, the corporation went two years without a launch and laid off many employees, but Campbell says now, business is coming back.“The best way to now be able to address the business that we’re getting is to just pay by the drink,” Campbell said. “Bring on the people you need for the launch time that you need them and not have to pay them year round. It also is an opportunity to provide more Alaskans jobs and specifically for people that live in Kodiak.”Most jobs will be in launch operations or facility maintenance, Campbell says. There will be a handful of full-time employees and the number of part-time employees will be flexible and determined by contracts.Campbell says that the corporation hopes to continue range and telemetry services for a New Zealand launch site as well as add an equatorial launch site in Hawaii or the Mariana Islands in order to offer both polar and equatorial launches.John Cramer will serve serve as the subsidiary’s president. He says there is no other company that will be able to do what Aurora will do.“The subsidiary will be able to provide launch services to any customer anywhere in the world to be able to bring in a team to launch their vehicles,” Cramer said.Cramer said that Aurora should fully operational within the year, and he adds that they could hire their first employees over the next couple of months.last_img read more

Atlanta Mayor Stops Immigration Cooperation Over Separations

first_imgBy KATE BRUMBACK, Associated PressATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s Democratic mayor on Wednesday called the forced separation of migrant families at the country’s Southern border “despicable” and said the city won’t accept any new immigration detainees until she’s certain the separations have stopped.The city has long had an agreement to house U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees in the city jail. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms signed an executive order Wednesday declaring the jail won’t take any more until she gets assurances from President Donald Trump’s administration that the policy has been rescinded and the separations have ceased.In this Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, file photo, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms speaks at a news conference in Atlanta. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)“I, like many others, have been horrified watching the impact of President Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy on children and families,” Bottoms said in a news release. The mayor added in the order that she “will not allow the City of Atlanta to risk being complicit in separating families as a result of this policy.”An ICE spokesman declined to comment on the mayor’s decision.Photos of children held in cages at border facilities have dominated the news in recent days, and audio recordings captured young children crying for their parents. The images and recordings have provoked a national uproar, sparking questions of morality.“On behalf of the people of Atlanta, I am calling upon the Trump Administration and Congress to enact humane and comprehensive measures that address our broken immigration system,” Bottoms said in the release.A recent “zero tolerance” policy from the Trump administration calls for all unlawful border crossings to be referred for prosecution. That moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services.Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to keep families together, but he said the “zero tolerance” policy will continue.Atlanta has long had a contract with the U.S. Marshal’s Service to house adult ICE detainees in the city jail. Bottoms said that may seem contrary to her personal stance, but she said the agreement keeps some immigration detainees from being sent to other privately run facilities in the state, which she called “substandard.”last_img read more

Rise in Holiday Cheer…and Mortgage Rates

first_imgRise in Holiday Cheer…and Mortgage Rates? Share Data Existing Home Prices Mortgage Rates Ten-X 2017-01-03 Staff Writer January 3, 2017 565 Views center_img in Data, Headlines, News Last month was not only high in Christmas spirit and morale, it also included an increase in mortgage rates. According to the latest Ten-X Residential Real Estate Nowcast, existing home sales have seen a month-over-month decrease, which due to rising mortgage rates. December sales will fall between seasonally adjusted annual rates of 5.33 and 5.69 million, with a targeted number of 5.51 million, which is down 1.8 percent from November, but a 0.9 percent increase from 2015, according to Ten-X. Rick Sharga, EVP of Ten-X, attributed the decline in home sales to the rising mortgage rates, which are expected to average at about 4 percent this year. “It’s possible that we’re seeing the effect of rising mortgage rates slowing down existing home sales,” he said. “It’s also possible that we may see the numbers trend upwards as buyers decide to enter the market before interest rates go even higher. All things considered, 2016 has been a remarkably good year for both existing and new home sales. We’ve seen year-over-year sales increases despite home prices appreciating more rapidly than wage growth, tight credit and limited supply. Clearly, demand remains fairly strong.”The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that November existing home sales saw an increase to a seasonally adjusted rate (SAAR) of 5.61 million units in November, which validated the predictions from the previous Ten-X Nowcast. The increase marked a 0.7 percent gain from the descending 5.57 million October estimate and a 15.4 percent year-over-year increase.As demand increased, the median price of existing homes continued to increase as well. NAR also reported a 6.8 percent year-over-year increase in median existing home prices to $234,900 in November, which marked 57 consecutive months of annual gains. Ten-X is predicting that median existing-home prices will decrease between $221,679 and $245,013 in December with a target price point of $233,346, which is down 0.7 percent from November, but a 4.1 percent increase from 2015.Ten-X Chief Economist Peter Muoio explained that the housing market is gaining momentum thanks to various factors, but there is room for growth. “As we round out 2016, the U.S. housing market continues to benefit from a strong labor market, as solid job gains, low unemployment and promising wage growth fuel a high level of underlying demand for homes,” he said. “While there are still headwinds to sales growth in the way of tight inventory, low affordability and the likelihood of mortgage rate increases, solid fundamentals continue pointing to the overall health of the housing market.”last_img read more
