first_imgThe Greencastle Coast Guard unit were tasked to an incident late last night at Malin Head.The Greencastle Unit of Irish Coast Guard were paged by Malin Head Coast Guard MRSC at around 10:40pm.Three men in their 20s from Derry City who had been rock climbing at an area called Hell’s Hole at Malin Head required assistance when one of the party became trapped approximately 150 feet down the cliff and suspended about 20 feet over the incoming tide.When the Greencastle Coast Guard unit arrived on scene they set up their cliff rescue equipment on the cliff top above the trapped climber.A second climber in the party was located on a ledge half way down holding a rope attached to his trapped friend.The Coastguard says; as this location is very dangerous and the rock face is unpredictable with loose rock, the rescuers proceeded to slowly and carefully lower two members of the team down the cliff.Just after midnight the first climber reached the casualty at the bottom of the cliff and secured him to the rescue lines.The Coast Guard team on the top of the cliff then hauled both the casualty and the rescuer safely to the cliff top. The second climber was also safely guided to the top.Two of the party received medical attention from a waiting HSE ambulance and the trapped climber was removed to Letterkenny University Hospital as a precaution for hypothermia and suspension trauma.Greencastle Coast Guard Officer In Charge, Charlie Cavanagh, said; “the operation went smoothly and the weather conditions were favourable. He thanked James, a local farmer, for his assistance on scene and his volunteer members for a very professional job”.The casualty was released from hospital earlier this morning and is recovering at home.

first_imgMany Harvard graduates are moved to give back to the School that gave them so much. But few can claim they have done so for half a century.Ruth Gove, 92, and Marion Cameron, 83, are original members of the Harvard Extension Alumni Association (HEAA). With the association celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the two of them met at the Harvard Division of Continuing Education. There, in front of stacks of immaculately preserved photos, magazines, bulletins, letters, and documents, they remembered the people, places, and events that shaped the School and their own lives, and inspired them to dedicate decades to the association.Gove (left) and Cameron at a recent alumni gathering. Credit: Jill Felicio“It’s [about] giving back, because I had received so much as a student,” Cameron said.Cameron and Gove attended Harvard Extension during a period when many women didn’t pursue a career, let alone a degree. But Gove had aspirations of becoming a special education teacher, and Cameron wanted to complement her health care background with classes in computer programming, and the School was — as it is to this day — a place where students of almost any age or education level could take affordable courses on their own schedule.“It was a time when my dentist would say to me, ‘How does it feel to be an oddball?’” Gove recounted. “Someone else would say, ‘How can you sit there and listen to those boring talks?’ And I kept thinking, if they only knew!”Many students who cannot pursue a traditional degree program find their academic community at the Extension School, which was founded on the idea that a College education should be accessible to anyone with the will to pursue it. The formation of the HEAA bolstered that mission.In 1968, Dean Reginald H. Phelps and two Extension School alumni, Ella Smith ’66 and Edgar Grossman ’66, established the HEAA to give graduates a network to support their personal and professional enrichment. Today, HEAA is under the umbrella of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA), and members share many of the same benefits as other University graduates.The association keeps graduates connected and engaged, in part thanks to Cameron’s long involvement. At Smith’s urging, Cameron was on board from the beginning, serving as the HEAA’s president from 1980‒1982 and representing it on the HAA’s board of directors from 1983‒1985.“I took [Smith] at her word, and I never regretted a moment,” Cameron said.HEAA events introduced her to such notable figures as Mother Teresa, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Tennessee Williams, and violinist Itzhak Perlman. At $15 a class, the School took her from a job as a medical secretary to a career in medical informatics — making her a pioneer not only for women, but for the industry in general. At Massachusetts General Hospital, she worked with Dr. G. Octo Barnett in his Laboratory of Computer Science, where they helped initiate the use of computers in health care.,Cameron would achieve other firsts. During her time as HEAA president, she worked with Dean Michael Shinagel to get equity for Extension School alumni, and she helped earn the School its own shield.Like Cameron, Gove was first drawn to the Extension School for enrichment. She turned to education to keep herself occupied after her children were in school.“I began thinking I would rather prepare myself to do something which I hadn’t done before, and someone suggested I write to Harvard to ask about their programs,” Gove said. “I thought, ‘Well, my family comes first, but I’ll see how far I can go.’ All of a sudden, I was halfway through, and I knew I was going to get my degree. It changed my life.”After earning her bachelor’s degree Gove went on to Northeastern University for her master’s in special education, a field in which she worked for more than 20 years. Gove taught at St. Ann’s Home and School in Methuen before taking a job with Lynn Public Schools, where she helped establish a program for emotionally impaired students. She later was one of the first teachers at the Lynn Community Day School, a collaboration with the NSMC Union Hospital. Gove spent the last years of her career as the head teacher of special needs at Eastern Junior High School in Lynn.For Gove, staying involved in the HEAA throughout those years was a respite from a rewarding yet emotionally consuming career. “When you have a difficult job, a job that takes emotional energy, having something like that to attend to was a joy,” she said. It also gave her a social network of people with whom she made lifelong friends and traveled the world.Gove and Cameron were both integral players in continuing the Commencement Day alumni gathering at Weld Hall started by Smith. Each year, HEAA members gather on the second floor of Weld to watch the Commencement ceremonies in Harvard Yard, while socializing and gearing up for the alumni parade in to the Afternoon Exercises.The Weld gathering and the annual alumni banquet in Annenberg Hall are traditions that have endured since HEAA’s inception — as has Gove and Cameron’s attendance. Last year, Gove received the Michael Shinagel Award for Alumni Excellence at the banquet. This weekend, she’ll speak at the 50th anniversary luncheon at Loeb House.Asked why they would put in all the effort, decades later, Gove and Cameron said it was simple.“It was a testament to how much we appreciate what we received,” Cameron said.last_img read more

first_imgEighty youth participated in the online 2020 Georgia 4-H state poultry judging contest hosted on July 6 in collaboration with the University of Georgia Poultry Science Department.This evaluation competition is a culmination of many months, and sometimes years, of studying Georgia’s top agricultural industry. The event encourages youth to learn and understand the standards used in poultry and egg production. In addition, they learn the importance of marketing to the public and how to apply those learned skills in a realistic decision-making process. The poultry judging program teaches animal husbandry fundamentals as well as life skills including critical thinking, teamwork and oral communication.“The virtual judging format this year, while a bit more challenging, is still a great way for us as a university to interact with Georgia youth interested in agriculture and, specifically, poultry,” said Casey Ritz, UGA poultry science professor and Extension coordinator. “Unique opportunities such as these will hopefully be remembered by our youth and help to shape their futures. Even in trying times as we have, these events give us the opportunity to share with students the great programs and events available to them here at the UGA Department of Poultry Science.”In the virtual format, senior participants in grades nine through 12 evaluated classes through a PowerPoint presentation and online test of their evaluation skills. This contest includes nine classes for youth to apply egg and carcass grading as well as place live bird classes based on egg-laying productivity. In addition, participants must provide oral arguments justifying their decisions. The senior high individual and first place senior team will earn Georgia Master 4-H’er status. The state winning team will represent Georgia 4-H at the national 4-H poultry judging contest in Louisville, Kentucky, in November. The winners of the 2020 Georgia 4-H state poultry judging contest are:First place team: Leopold Joh, Alexa Hillebrand, Nicole Hillebrand and Lexi Koenig — Coweta CountySecond place team: Clayton Adams, Sophia Merka, Alyssa Goldman and Kaylie Goldman — Madison CountyThird place team: Whitley Gatch, Joleigh Butler and Kate Yaughn — Bulloch CountySenior High Individual: Whitley Gatch — Bulloch CountyThis event is sponsored by Mike Giles and Carla Abshire. To learn more about the Georgia 4-H Livestock Program, visit 4-H empowers youth to become true leaders by developing necessary life skills, positive relationships and community awareness. As the largest youth leadership organization in the state, 4-H reaches more than 242,000 people annually through the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension offices and 4-H facilities.

first_imgFrom mobile P2P to EMV technology and beyond, the payment industry is rapidly changing.   And while consumers are eagerly embracing new payment technologies, many do so without fully understanding their benefits and risks.This dynamic presents an opportunity for your credit union to shine. Educating members on how to leverage new payment technologies while protecting themselves against fraud is a valuable service you can provide that will keep your credit union top of mind.So what exactly do members need to know about payments?“Consumers are faced with many alternative and sometimes unsecured options for payments, and the risks involved may not be apparent to them,” said Lois Hansen, vice president of product development for CO-OP Financial Services.Jennifer Kerry, CO-OP’s vice president of credit card services, adds, “The importance of security can’t be emphasized enough. However, security is just one attribute of a great payment product. A prominent trend in payments today is the use of rewards. Get your rewards program squarely in front of members for their benefit and yours.”Hansen and Kerry list seven things you should tell members about today’s changing payment landscape: Remind them to stay vigilant. Consumers like technology to be fast and easy, but speed and simplicity don’t equal security. Hansen recommends advising members against using social media sites for payments. “Also, let them know that an authentication process should be long and involved,” she said. “Consumers need to stay away from any payment site that relaxes its standards in this area. Make sure your members know that proper authentication is well worth their time from a security standpoint.” Inform them about your rewards programs. Eighty percent of credit card transactions are made using rewards cards today. “Your members value rewards and may not know about your program,” said Kerry. “In particular, tell them about your merchant-funded rewards programs, which allow them to benefit just by shopping at places they already frequent.” Advise members on when to use debit and when to use credit. Both have their advantages – credit is typically more secure, but debit can be easier for budgeting purposes. CO-OP offers a wealth of information on how consumers can use each method most effectively. Direct members to the blog at for more details.Answer all their Apple Pay questions – before they ask. When Apple came forward with tokenized mobile payments last year, it was a fun new way to pay. And when Visa, MasterCard, Discover and others joined the Apple Pay ecosystem, it was a turning point for the industry and for the way members use payment methods. “Your members may not realize just how secure tokenization is, so tell them about it,” said Hansen. “Everyone wins. Your members experience the convenience of Apple Pay, and you as a credit union get the interchange.” Update them on EMV technology. Hansen expects EMV payment cards to gain momentum nationwide by mid-2016. She said, “While your members may have EMV cards already, many merchants still don’t have EMV-enabled card readers. Let members know that their EMV cards are likely running as magstripe transactions today, which means they are not receiving the added protection of enhanced EMV security technology. That will soon change, though, as consumers gain appreciation for the chip card and merchants follow suit.” You partner with top fraud protection providers. Tell members how hard you work to protect them and their cards. In addition to working with Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO), the number one source for fraud detection, CO-OP applies advanced data analytics tools to quickly uncover fraud wherever it occurs. Such provider partnerships, and the security they bring to member accounts, is a competitive-advantage story credit unions can tell members. Demystify Person-to-Person (P2P) payment technology. Direct payment to another person, account-to-account in real-time. It’s a marvel of making payments today, and members need to both understand it and know that you offer it. For CO-OP, Hansen says, “This product line is core to our business and will be expanded with new solutions as the technology advances.”According to Kerry, “Member education is so important. Your members look to you for guidance. Opening up these dialogs both demonstrates your leadership and sets the stage for deeper, more lasting member relationships.” 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Samantha Paxson Samantha Paxson is Chief Experience Officer for CO-OP Financial Services (, a payments and financial technology company serving credit unions.

first_imgBut the two countries were on their way to having the highest number of coronavirus cases in the world, with nearly 100,000 deaths in the US and 24,000 in Brazil.Showing their disdain for medical experts, both presidents have flouted their advice.Trump refuses to wear a face mask in public and proudly played golf Saturday; Bolsonaro ditches his mask to greet and hug supporters at rallies, and has been hosting barbecues, hitting the shooting range and going out for hotdogs.The man called the “Tropical Trump” has also been criticized for a lack of empathy for victims and his quizzical remarks on the virus, once saying Brazilians’ immune systems were so strong they could swim in raw sewage and “not catch a thing.” Impeachment threat Both are facing backlash, too, not only on coronavirus.Trump survived impeachment in February; Bolsonaro is facing 35 different impeachment attempts in the lower house of Congress, some for his handling of the health crisis.But analysts say the risk he will be removed from office is small, for now.Brazil’s opposition is “almost inaudible,” and its system of checks and balances “less effective,” said Dumont.And Bolsonaro retains a hard-core base of far-right support, even if his disapproval rating has been rising.”Bolsonaro has a freer hand than Trump, who is constrained by institutions and has te be more presidential,” said Stuenkel. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who is often compared to his US counterpart, Donald Trump, has followed in his footsteps on the coronavirus crisis — and gone even further.Known for their shared talent for vitriol, social media rants and riling up their conservative bases, Trump and Bolsonaro have followed the same script on the virus: downplay its severity, don’t sweat the facts, bet big on hydroxychloroquine, get the economy reopened.In February, Trump told Americans the virus could “miraculously” disappear with warmer weather; in March, Bolsonaro told Brazilians not to pay attention to the “hysteria” around it and compared it to a “little flu.” Like the US, Brazil is a federation of states, and like Trump, Bolsonaro has berated governors for imposing what he calls “the tyranny of total quarantine.”Bolsonaro even called the governors of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro “piece of shit” and “pile of manure” in a video-taped cabinet meeting that recently became public.”They both followed the same strategy, which is to distance themselves from the economic crisis which will come and to blame other political actors, like governors,” said Oliver Stuenkel, a professor of international relations at the Getulio Vargas Foundation.There is one important difference, though. Trump has softened his tone as the United States has emerged as the epicenter of the pandemic, and on Sunday banned travel from Brazil following the surge in cases there. Bolsonaro, meanwhile, continues to divide Brazilians by politicizing the outbreak.center_img Topics : ‘Poverty and hunger’ Beyond that, the parallels go on.Trump called it a “Chinese virus;” Bolsonaro’s foreign minister called it a “commie-virus.”Trump halted US funding to the World Health Organization; Bolsonaro attacked the WHO’s credibility and accused it of encouraging masturbation and homosexuality among children.”It is Trumpian, this necessity to find enemies, but a typical authoritarian populist tradition to look for scapegoats,” said Stuenkel.”Authoritarian leaders are quick to find those to blame.”Then there is the treatment debate.Both presidents have touted the drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as promising treatments for COVID-19.Trump even revealed last week he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure. He said Sunday he had finished his course of treatment.Bolsonaro’s government meanwhile recommended the drugs for anyone with coronavirus symptoms, even after the WHO discontinued clinical trials because of safety risks.While Trump says it’s “time to go back to work,” Bolsonaro says “Brazil can’t stop,” warning that the alternative is “poverty and hunger.”However, while the United States has passed a record $2-trillion economic rescue package, and is preparing to spend even more, Brazil has stuck to relatively modest emergency spending measures so far.”Bolsonaro, like Trump, doesn’t want to be held responsible for an economic crash,” said Juliette Dumont of the Institute of Latin American Studies in Paris.Both presidents were banking on a booming economy to help them win re-election — Trump in November, Bolsonaro in 2022.”There are striking similarities, there is total alignment with the United States that is unprecedented in Brazilian history, but there is one key difference,” said Dumont.”Trump had to change his tune, while Bolsonaro is still charging ahead.”last_img read more

first_imgMichail Antoino scored four times in West Ham’s 4-0 win over Norwich last weekend (Picture: Getty)Whoever wins here will feel as though they have taken a big step towards safety. This is a massive game for both teams, neither of them will want to lose so I think this will be quite a tactical battle. When you play against teams like this, there is sometimes a mentality of defend first, and there is a lot at stake here. Maybe we will see a more direct for of football, with both teams kicking it long up front and seeing what happens after that. I have the feeling that Watford will edge this one. West Ham have a good team but they leak goals far too easily at times. Sometimes when you are fighting relegation you need that direct style and to be able to bully defenders like Troy Deeney can do. Dimitar’s Prediction: 0-1.Betfair Exchange Odds: West Ham – 7/5, Draw – 11/5, Watford – 5/2For more from Betfair Ambassador, Dimitar Berbatov head to Michael Owen makes Premier League predictions for Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal vs LiverpoolMORE: Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta passionately defends Manchester City after Champions League ban is overturned Comment Michael Obafemi’s goal saw Southampton rescue a late draw against Man Utd earlier this week (Picture: Getty)If Man United lose this one and the other teams pushing for top four win then it will be very difficult for them to achieve their goal. I know they will be fired up for this on though, and they will know exactly what is at stake, I don’t think they will let themselves miss another opportunity, like they did against Southampton. I hope they can win this one and push on into the top four because I really want to see them in the Champions League again. Dimitar’s Prediction: 0-3.AdvertisementBetfair Exchange Odds: Crystal Palace – 10/1, Draw – 9/2, Man United – 4/11Southampton vs Brighton Southampton are coming off the back of a good performance against Man United, and I honestly think they play some good football, they have some quality in their team, Danny Ings is scoring goals, they pass the ball really well and I think they will be full of confidence. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-1.Betfair Exchange Odds: Southampton – 11/8, Draw – 12/5, Brighton – 13/5West Ham vs Watford Manchester City have been in fine goalscoring form of late (Picture: Getty)Guardiola hates losing, and I know that winners hate to lose no matter what game it is, they will still be pushing had in every game and will be going for the win in this one. Sometimes with the smaller teams they produce some good games, Bournemouth certainly had a good second half against Leicester, but then when it really matters they don’t have that consistency, which is the difference. I think they will struggle against City. Dimitar’s Prediction: 4-0.Betfair Exchange Odds: Man City – 1/6, Draw – 9/1, Bournemouth – 19/1Newcastle vs SpursThis will be a good game to watch. Newcastle have done well but they have had a couple of bad results recently and they will be looking to pick themselves back up again and play a bit more. Even though there will be no fans at St Jame’s Park, it will still feel uncomfortable. Newcastle are always up for a fight and I think Spurs will need to work even harder to get something from this one. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-2.Betfair Exchange Odds: Newcastle – 4/1, Draw – 3/1, Spurs – 4/5Arsenal vs Liverpool Dimitar BerbatovTuesday 14 Jul 2020 11:00 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Arsenal vs Liverpoolcenter_img Advertisement The race for the top four in the Premier League is going to the wire (Picture: REX/METRO.CO.UK)The race for Champions League qualification is coming to a head and with Manchester City having earned a reprieve from the Court of Arbitration for Sport the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester can ill-afford any more slips. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side dropped two points against Southampton on Monday but will be confident of extending their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine matches when they travel to Selhurst Park. Leicester will need to bounce back from their shock defeat at Bournemouth against Sheffield United, while at the other end of the table Eddie Howe’s Cherries still need the points in the battle to beat the drop but will not fancy their chances at the Etihad.AdvertisementAdvertisementAs ever, Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov is here to preview the action…ADVERTISEMENTBurnley vs Wolves Burnley are doing well and playing some OK football at the moment, they got a good draw against Liverpool last time out. Wolves are still chasing the top four and they will still think that they can surprise people and secretly they will think that they have a good chance to get into the top four, they produce some great football, score some great goals, they are solid as a team and I like to watch them. In this one I’m going to side with Burnley, which will ease the pressure on United. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-1.Betfair Exchange Odds: Burnley 4/1, Draw – 12/5, Wolves – 20/21Man City vs Bournemouth Arsenal will hope to bounce back from their north London derby defeat (Picture: Getty)As I have said before, if Arsenal don’t fix their deference then they will continue to have problems, especially when you are coming up against a fast front three like Liverpool have, then you will have massive problems. We saw against Spurs how they conceded and I think those mistakes are in some of their players’ DNA, and that will continue if they don’t fix it. Dimitar’s Prediction: 1-2.AdvertisementAdvertisementBetfair Exchange Odds: Arsenal – 16/5, Draw – 16/5, Liverpool – 10/11Everton vs Aston Villa Aston Villa are still fighting and I like them but I think Everton will take what they need in this one, and if they want to be a big team then they will need to up their concentration and consistency. Everton have good players in their team and a top manager, and I do believe that they can become a big team in time. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-1.Betfair Exchange Odds: Everton – 11/10, Draw – 11/4, Aston Villa – 14/5Leicester vs Sheffield United Ah, my team, Sheffield United, they have done so well this season, they can do my other team Man United a big favour here. I would say that I am going to go for the surprise here, but with the way the teams have been playing I don’t think Sheffield winning would come as a surprise to anyone. I think when they want to, Sheffield United can really play, they were amazing against Spurs and Chelsea.

first_imgLike Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: SHARE Email Facebook Twitter BLOG: It’s Time for Leadership, Not Games December 17, 2015center_img The Blog Governor Wolf has always said he would be a different kind of governor and that’s what he’s done. He’s worked with Republicans and Democrats to create a framework budget with bipartisan support. He has worked with Democrats and Republicans in order to secure an unprecedented increase for major basic education programs and historic bipartisan reforms to the liquor and pensions systems.Twice since November, Governor Wolf has come to a bipartisan agreement with House and Senate leaders on a budget that makes historic investments in education and is balanced and paid for with revenue that begins to address our chronic deficit.The Senate has passed nearly every piece of the budget, and we have continued good faith negotiations on all outstanding issues.Governor Wolf has repeatedly called upon the legislature to come together to pass a budget. It’s time to finish the job that leaders in both chambers and both caucuses agreed to over a month ago.With this budget we can rebuild Pennsylvania’s middle class, prepare our children for the jobs of the 21st century, and get Pennsylvania back on track. Maintaining the status quo that has plagued Harrisburg for so long is not an option.It is far past time to end this impasse.
