Roger Federer, Angelique Kerber in the spotlight on day one in Melbourne

first_imgRoger Federer takes the spotlight on his return to grand slam tennis on the opening day of the Australian Open on Monday but those looking for title contenders might be wise to cast their gaze elsewhere.Seeded 17th after six months away from the sport nursing a knee injury, Federer’s first round match against Austrian qualifier Juergen Melzer has nevertheless been awarded the prime spot of the final match on Rod Laver Arena.The 35-year-old won the last of his four titles at Melbourne Park in 2010 and half a year out of the game combined with the tricky draw that comes with the lowly ranking, makes a fifth crown a bit of a long shot, even for the Swiss Master. (Andy Murray, Angelique Kerber named top seeds for Australian Open)Andy Murray embarks on his first grand slam campaign as world number one with much stronger title credentials, even if he has lost five finals at Melbourne Park, four of them to the man he usurped in the rankings, Novak Djokovic.The British top seed takes on Ilya Marchenko in the last match of the afternoon session on Rod Laver Arena and will have to contend with temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius as well as the Ukrainian. (Dark horse Johanna Konta keeping it all in perspective ahead of Australian Open)Stan Wawrinka, the 2014 champion, also begins his quest for a third grand slam crown, against Slovakia’s Martin Klizan, while Japan’s fifth seed Kei Nishikori renews his crusade to give Asia its first men’s champion against Andrey Kuznetsov.advertisementWomen’s top seed Angelique Kerber opens the night session on the main showcourt as she begins her a first grand slam title defence against Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko, who pulled out of a warm-up tournament in Hobart last week with a virus. (Staying number one harder than getting there, says Angelique Kerber)Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza and Svetlana Kuznetsova are the other top 10 women’s seeds in action on day one and they will be glad to be early starters with temperatures forecast to soar when the bottom half of the draw plays on Tuesday.last_img read more

Province Further Supports Aquaculture Development

first_imgNova Scotia’s aquaculture sector will get a major financial boost to support development, improve the climate for investment and increase competitiveness, the province announced today, Nov. 27. In partnership with the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture will invest $2.5 million in the aquaculture sector over the next three years. The funds will be provided through the Community Development Trust Fund, which was established to help communities and workers hard hit by economic challenges. “Aquaculture has tremendous growth potential in Nova Scotia,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Ron Chisholm. “The province is well positioned to seize this opportunity because of its natural marine assets, educated workforce, and generations of fisheries experience.” The department will use the funding to identify sites and areas of the coast with potential for aquaculture development. It will also help expand the industry through innovative projects and create an opportunity to access federal funding through cost-shared aquaculture development. “This investment will create opportunities and jobs in rural coastal communities throughout the province by improving Nova Scotia’s ability to compete in this expanding industry,” said Economic Development Minister Angus MacIsaac. “With $53 million in farm gate sales last year, aquaculture has become a significant and sustainable resource based industry for Nova Scotia.” Aquaculture produces nearly half the world’s seafood consumed by people. Global demand for fish will reach 150 million tonnes by 2030 and Nova Scotia’s aquaculture industry will play a growing role in meeting that demand, with a potential to double sales in the next few years.

Minister to Speak at World Education Forum 2016

first_imgEducation and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey will represent Canada’s ministers of education at the World Education Forum in London, U.K. on Jan. 19. The minister will be part of a panel addressing Education in Areas of Conflict and Crisis: Refugee/Migrant Education. “I am honoured to represent Canada at the world’s largest gathering of education and skills ministers,” said Ms. Casey. “It will be a tremendous opportunity to highlight the excellent work that our public school systems are doing across Canada to welcome the thousands of Syrian newcomers expected in the coming weeks and months.” The minister’s presentation will focus on how jurisdictions are addressing challenges with movements of population, providing education for children, and integrating and supporting Syrians to their new home. Examples of initiatives include welcome centers, culturally responsive teaching and learning, best practices in new language acquisition, and supports to children and youth who have experienced trauma. “The steps we are taking in Nova Scotia mirror what is happening right across the country,” said Ms. Casey. “Our schools and school boards have experience welcoming immigrants to our public education system and I have every confidence they will draw on this experience to help ensure a smooth transition for our new Syrian students.” The Canadian Council of Ministers of Education is funding the minister’s trip.last_img read more

Investors looking for growth measures in Budget

first_imgMumbai: A slowing GDP growth rate is a major sticking point for the Indian stock markets at this points and a delayed monsoon and sharp rise in oil prices is further weighing on the investors. Sensex and Nifty have failed to sustain the key levels of 40,000 and 12,000 after breaching them post the conclusion of the general elections, primarily owing to concerns over slowdown. “All eyes are on the Union Budget. A reformist budget with big plans for growth is what markets are looking for,” Mayuresh Joshi of Angel Broking stressed. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep For the market to really move up, it needs a mix of local and global triggers that are supportive, he added. With the prevailing conditions, all eyes are on the Budget to be tabled on July 5 , to announce measures to revive growth. Among the key points of concerns for the financial market, analysts noted, were the ongoing trade dispute, spike in global oil prices and shortage of liquidity in the market. Brent crude, the global oil benchmark rose sharply on Thursday after war like situation developed between Iran and the US after Iran shot down a US drone. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to Customs US President Donald Trump on Friday said he was in “no hurry” to retaliate. He warned that the “we were cocked and loaded to retaliate last night” but chose otherwise as its was “not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone”. Global financial markets fell over fear that a possible conflict would disrupt flows from the Middle East, which accounts for over 20 per cent of the world’s oil output. Joshi added that the NBFC crisis has the potential to become a major roadblock for the financial markets. “It is essential to draw a line between liquidity and solvency and help out the solvent NBFC get adequate liquidity,” he said. Another major concern has been the consumption slowdown, largely owing to the distress in the rural sector. The sectors require all the more attention in light of the prevalent drought like situations in several states. Besides, near stagnant wage growth levels and signs of sluggish progress of monsoon is another point of worry. “Domestic tractor sales growth, often regarded as the major gauge to track rural economy, has been contracting for the past four months, as compared to high double digit growth seen in late 2018. However, the contraction has widened to 16 per cent YoY in May as compared to 13.2 per cent YoY in the previous month,” Centrum report added. “Modi 2.0 needs new modified MNREGA type schemes to boost the Rural economy and pump up the consumption as earliest as possible. Attempt to achieve fiscal deficit target will deepen the crisis in Investment scene for the long term,” said Romesh Tiwari, Head of Research, CapitalAim. However, the only silver lining for the markets came on Thursday when the US Federal Reserve indicated a rate cut in its future meetings. Sensex jumped 489 points higher in response to the Fed comments. Central Bank actions across the globe pointing to a dovish stance and expectations of rate cuts by the Federal Reserve might boost the inflow of Foreign Institutional Investment.last_img read more

Haitis first census in 24 years uncovers pressing problems UN agency says

Haiti’s first census in 24 years shows that half of the Caribbean country’s population is younger than 20, unemployment is a staggering 33 per cent and less than half of the school-age children are attending primary school, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which helped finance the effort, said today.“The census offers a map of where the direst needs are in Haiti,” UNFPA’s representative in the country, Hernando Clavijo, said. “The population structure in itself, with an overwhelming majority of young people, means that more resources should be put into education and reproductive health services.”Related studies of the data collected show that Haiti’s maternal mortality ratio is the highest in the Western Hemisphere, with 523 deaths per 100,000 live births, UNFPA said.Last year Haiti placed 153rd out of the 177 countries studied for the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Human Development Report 2005 on maternal mortality. Regionally this ranking compared with Barbados at number 30 and Cuba at number 52.Haiti’s HIV/AIDS prevalence rate of between 4 and 5 per cent is also the highest in the Western Hemisphere, UNFPA said.Haiti’s Ministry of Finance and the Statistics and Informatics Institute conducted the $8 million census, the fourth in the country’s history. It employed 25,000 people and was funded by the Government of Haiti, UNFPA, the Inter-American Development Bank, the European Union (EU), the Government of Japan and the Government of the Walloon Region of Belgium. read more

UNESCO and China highlight role of culture in post2015 development agenda

The congress, entitled ‘Culture: Key to Sustainable Development’ will take place in Hangzhou, China from 15-17 May, and seeks to shape the 2015 global development agenda and beyond. “Culture is what makes us who we are, it gives us strength, and it provides answers to many of the challenges we face today,” said the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova. “This power is increasingly recognized by countries across the world. We need now determined political will to act on this recognition, to mainstream culture in all development strategies and programmes at global, regional and local levels, to integrate culture within national development goals,” she said.UNESCO has long advocated that culture is essential to sustainable development, because of the resources it embodies for individuals and communities as a source of innovation and creativity.Today, cultural heritage, cultural and creative industries, sustainable cultural tourism, and cultural infrastructure generate substantial revenues, notably in developing countries, helping them combat poverty and unemployment. “Cultural factors influence lifestyles, consumption patterns, values related to our interaction with and stewardship of the natural environment,” UNESCO said in a news release. “It also encompasses local and indigenous knowledge systems and environmental management practices which provide valuable insight and tools with which to tackle ecological challenges, such as the loss of biodiversity, and land degradation, and climate change, not to mention its key role in enabling people to lead satisfying intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual lives.”The congress will bring together some 450 policymakers, leaders from development institutions, representatives of the private sector, civil society, academia, and the arts, and is expected to provide substantive input to the discussions on the framework for the post-2015 development agenda.“The goal is to inspire Governments, civil society, businesses and communities to harness the power of culture in addressing the world’s most pressing challenges,” UNESCO said. read more

Yianni Sarris a Buckeye at heart for Ohio State mens soccer

Senior midfielder Yianni Sarris dribbles the ball during a game against Akron on Sept. 24 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Ben Jackson / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s soccer team has proven it can hang with just about anyone this season, and a large part of that is because of the work of senior midfielder Yianni Sarris.Sarris leads the Buckeyes with four goals this season, breaking his previous career high of two set during his freshman year. The latest two came in the same week, against then-No. 5 Louisville and then-No. 17 Michigan State, respectively. The former proved to be the game winner en route to an OSU upset win.“A few goals have been just being in the right spot at the right time,” Sarris said. “But my teammates get me the ball in crucial areas where I can make things happen, and from there I can just take chances. Without taking chances, nothing happens.”Though Sarris has been a fixture of coach John Bluem’s offense for what is now his third season with the Buckeyes, his collegiate career did not begin in Columbus, but rather at Florida Gulf Coast University.“I was a little bit stubborn at first, so I wanted to get out of the state and kind of go a little bit far from my parents and kind of do my own thing,” Sarris said.However, Sarris, a native of Mentor, Ohio, decided after one year that the pull of coming home was too strong to resist.“I always wanted to be a Buckeye at heart,” Sarris said. “Eventually I realized that Ohio State is the best university out there, so I’m glad that I made that decision.”Sarris’ lone year at FGCU was not a forgettable one — the Eagles advanced to the 2011 NCAA Tournament after winning the Atlantic Sun Tournament. In the A-Sun Championship Game, Sarris saved a goal with a leaping header with just three seconds remaining that would have tied the game.The stay in the NCAA Tournament proved brief, however, as the Eagles fell in double overtime to Central Florida, 1-0, on a goal by current Columbus Crew midfielder Kevan George, ending their run.Sarris said he does not regret leaving the successful program, but rather wants to see OSU reach that level before his time is up.“I don’t just want to make a run in the Big Ten Tournament, but I definitely want to make a run in the NCAA Tournament,” Sarris said. “Especially for these younger guys, I want to set the standard high for them.”Junior Kyle Culbertson, who has started all but three games alongside Sarris in the midfield this season, said Sarris is easy to play with.“I think he’s a great player to work alongside with,” Culbertson said. “I think his work ethic is the biggest plus that he brings, and he’s a great guy to have in the locker room as well.”Culbertson praised the actions of Sarris on the field this season, as well.“He just understands his role in the offensive mid-spot, knowing he has to be the one that needs to be pulling the strings and creating things in the final third, I think he’s done a good job of that,” Culbertson said.Bluem has also been pleased with the performance of his senior, he said.“I think he’s been playing very, very well,” Bluem said. “He’s a good attacking player. He knows where to go and when and he gets himself into good scoring positions.”Sarris said especially as a senior, he takes it upon himself to work hard every day and set an example.“I like to look at myself as a leader towards the young guys,” Sarris said. “I understand that how I play, the way I show up, is the way the team is going to show up as well.”However, Sarris did acknowledge that there are aspects of his game that he could be doing better, particularly in charging toward the defender when on offense.“I’m usually used to being in the midfield, not actually going at people, so I’d like to get going toward people a lot more,” Sarris said.The senior has made the most of the opportunities he has received this season, leading the team in goals and points despite ranking sixth in minutes, fifth in total shots and fourth in shots on goal.Sarris and the Buckeyes are set to return to the field Saturday to take on Wisconsin. That game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Madison, Wis. read more

Womens Basketball Momentumdriven Ohio State attempts to stall struggling Illinois

Ohio State junior guard Jensen Caretti (33) takes a jump shot in the second half of the game against Indiana on Jan 10. Ohio State won 55-50. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorWith two straight losses and only one road win — an overtime win against Penn State — to its name, the odds were not in the Ohio State women’s basketball team’s favor as it headed up to Minneapolis to face off against Minnesota. Throughout most of the game, the odds seemed to be correct as Minnesota maintained a steady lead against the Buckeyes.But a 16-0 run in the fourth quarter was all Ohio State needed to get a victory against the Golden Gophers, 65-55 on Monday. The Buckeyes did this all without the help of freshman forward Dorka Juhasz, who missed the past two games with a sprained ankle injury she suffered against Michigan on Jan. 20. Instead, freshman forward Aaliyah Patty scored 20 points to lead the way for Ohio State in her second start of the season. Now, the Buckeyes will try and build off the road win as they head back to Columbus to take on Illinois.Projected StartersOhio State (8-10, 4-5 Big Ten)G – Carly Santoro – Redshirt senior, 11.2 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.3 apgG – Carmen Grande – Redshirt senior, 7.1 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 5.1 apgG – Janai Crooms – Freshman, 7.0 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 1.5 apgF – Aaliyah Patty – Freshman, 6.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 0.1 apgF – Makayla Waterman – Redshirt senior, 7.7 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.7 apgIllinois (9-11, 1-8 Big Ten)G – Brandi Beasley – Junior, 11.0 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 5.2 apgG – Cierra Rice – Redshirt junior, 8.0 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.6 apgG – Courtney Joens – Junior, 6.0 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.3 apgF – Alex Wittinger – Senior, 15.1 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 1.2 apgF – Ali Andrews – Junior, 6.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 apgMomentum is on Ohio State’s side heading into this game. Illinois is currently riding a six-game losing streak and is last in the Big Ten with a 1-8 record in conference play. However, Illinois is not a team to be taken lightly as veteran players like Beasley and Wittinger will pose a tough threat for the Buckeyes. Both players have scored more than 1,000 points in their career and will continue to add to their totals on Thursday.With each game, Ohio State has been getting more consistent on both sides of the court. After a dismal 2-5 record in December, the Buckeyes have turned things around in January with wins over two ranked opponents in Indiana and Michigan State and a 4-3 record. This has been helped by both veteran and new presences on the court. Santoro, Waterman and Grande have been consistent on all sides of the ball, racking up points, assists, rebounds and forcing turnovers to propel Ohio State forward. Crooms has scored 10 points in five of her past seven games and averaged a total of 13 points per game over that stretch. Ohio State will take on Illinois at the Schottenstein Center at 7 p.m. on Thursday. read more

Backcountry Avalanche Warning For Chugach National Forest

first_imgThis includes the Turnagain Pass and the Kenai and Western Chugach Mountains in and around Eastern Turnagain Arm, Summit Lake and Seward. The Avalanche Danger will remain at HIGH today and is expected to last through the evening. This Avalanche Warning does not apply to ski areas or highways where avalanche reduction measures are performed. Recent heavy snow combined with strong wind have created widespread areas of unstable snow. Both human triggered and natural avalanches are likely on slopes steeper than 30 degrees. Check www.avalanche.org for your closest avalanche center and to learn more about how to learn about how to identify avalanche hazards. Be aware there will be intermittent traffic delays today on the Seward Highway for Avalanche Hazard Reduction work from mile post 99 (Bird Flats) to mile post 86.5 (Kern Creek). Motorists should expect delays of up to 45 minutes between 9:00 and 2:00pm.
