Annan congratulates former US President Carter on winning Nobel Peace Prize

“I’m delighted,” the Secretary-General said in Boston, responding to a reporter’s question on the award being given to President Carter. “He deserves it.”Last year, on the 100th anniversary of the Peace Prize, Mr. Annan and the United Nations were jointly honoured for “their work for a better organized and more peaceful world.”Mr. Annan was the second Secretary-General to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Nimble and flexible approach needed to bring new Ebola cases to zero

“There has been an extraordinary response to the Ebola crisis,” UN Special Envoy on Ebola, Dr. David Nabarro, told reporters today in Freetown, Sierra Leone. “The whole world has taken notice… and we are starting to see results.”Alongside Anthony Banbury, Head of the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), Dr. Nabarro gave a press conference to mark the first 60 days of the Mission, and assess the response to date. The United Nations had set targets for December 1 of 70 per cent of burials being done safely and 70 per cent of new cases being placed in treatment facility in order to end the outbreak, which the World Health Organization says has infected more than 16,000 people in 8 countries and claimed nearly 6,000 lives.Mr. Banbury said the target on safe burials has been exceeded in the three worst-affected countries – Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone – while the second target on isolating patients had been reached in Liberia and Guinea, but only in some parts of Sierra Leone.“The global response has successfully turned the crisis around,” he said, but noted that “we’re far away from being out of the woods” and now the response is focused on bringing down the number of cases to zero – the only true measure of success.“Going forward, we need to get down to zero,” he said. “Zero is the only success – when we’re at zero.”Mr. Banbury said UNMEER would apply a district-by-district approach for the next 60 days, to hunt down all cases and that he was “very confident that 60 days from now, all three countries will be in a much, much better condition than they are in now.”Assessing the current situation, Dr. Nabarro said the “intensity of transmission and numbers of newly affected cases of Ebola still vary greatly each day – slowing in some districts and increasing in others.”“The distribution changes from week to week,” he said. “The situation can worsen unexpectedly.”Looking headed to the next 60 days and beyond, Dr. Nabarro said “Responses must be nimble and flexible, so as to continually adapt to needs, and – at all times – remain coordinated, so resources are used effectively and efficiently.”Mr. Banbury elaborated by saying “now UNMEER and its partners are looking at putting in place a district-by-district strategy for the 62 districts in the three countries, where we have tailored interventions in every district that are appropriate to the circumstances in that district.”“The first 60, we were focused on deployment capabilities and turning the disease around, now we’re focused on aiming down towards zero through this district-by-district approach,” according to the head of UNMEER.And Dr. Nabarro said “as transmission reduces, emphasis shifts to recovery and the renewal, though all of us must remain engaged and vigilant.”“We must prevent the return of Ebola to areas freed of the disease,” he said.Meanwhile, in Geneva, Dr. Bruce Aylward, Assistant Director-General in charge of the Ebola response for the UN World Health Organization (WHO), cautioned reporters that the targets set for today were important milestones.But he cautioned: “You eventually have to get 100 percent safe burials, you eventually have to get 100 percent of people into treatment facilities” and complement that with case findings and contract tracing.The UN Development Programme (UNDP), meanwhile, said today that it has assisted the Government of Sierra Leone with two nationwide payments in November of more than 12,000 Ebola response workers, while in Guinea and Liberia, efforts are underway to check lists of workers and reinforce existing payment systems. The Head of UNDP, Helen Clark, stressed that success in the response, down to the district level, depends on the women and men who are risking their lives every day to fight the disease and that paying them in a timely fashion is crucial. UNMEER also reported that President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita of Mali announced over the weekend that his country has no more confirmed cases of Ebola after the last patient known to be suffering from the virus was cured. read more

British couple jailed for rape and trafficking of deaf girl

first_imgYou, Ilyas Ashar, and you, Tallat Ashar, did not treat this girl as a human being. To you she was merely an object to be used, abused and cast aside at will.The girl had no family or friends in Britain and had never been to school there or in Pakistan but was taught to sign her name to claim state benefits, the trial heard. She wanted to return to her family in Pakistan but was not allowed to.Ashar routinely raped her, despite her efforts to fight him off, and he also beat and slapped her if she did not follow orders.Her plight was discovered after police and local authorities raided the house in 2009 and found her asleep in the cold and dark cellar.The trial heard that the victim was now recovering with the help of social services.- © AFP, 2013Read: Deaf girl ‘kept in a cellar and used as sex slave’> A BRITISH COURT jailed an elderly couple today after a deaf girl who could not speak was trafficked from Pakistan to work as a servant and then repeatedly raped for nearly a decade.Ilyas Ashar, 84, and his wife Tallat Ashar, 68, kept the girl in the cellar of their house in Salford, northwest England, after she was illegally brought to Britain in 2000 at the age of around 10.JailedIlyas Ashar was jailed for 13 years for raping the girl from before the age of puberty until she was rescued in 2009, while his wife was jailed for five years for trafficking a person for exploitation.The couple were also convicted of using the girl, who is profoundly deaf and cannot speak, to fraudulently claim more than £30,000 (€35,000) in welfare payments.The couple’s daughter Faaiza Ashar, 46, was sentenced to carry out community service after being convicted of giving false information to obtain benefits.The victim cannot be named for legal reasons.‘Misery and degradation’Sentencing the couple at Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester, Judge Peter Lakin said the couple had subjected the girl “to a life of misery and degradation”.last_img read more

Panda launches 2012 security suites

first_imgEvery year hackers and spammers find new ways to exploit security holes in the operating systems, applications, and web browsers we use every day. The only option is to protect yourself with a handful of security tools, or the much more convenient security suite that offers everything you need with one install. Each year we get the most well-known vendors releasing the latest version of their suites promising even better/more security than previous versions and their competition.As we enter June it’s the turn of Panda Security to update its range of protection, and they have a solution for most scenarios. In total there are four products on offer all carrying the 2012 tag. They include:AdChoices广告Antivirus Pro 2012Internet Security 2012 for NetbooksInternet Security 2012Global Protection 2012The base offering is Antivirus Pro 2012 which is just your core antivirus solution, so suited to a user who already has a range of other tools they like for security. It offers up a personal firewall, virtual keyboard, a safe browsing sandbox, gaming mode, home network manager, behavior analysis, and Panda’s Collective Intelligence which uses information from all Panda Security users to define and deal with threats more quickly and effectively in the cloud.Moving up the pile we have Internet Security 2012 and the Netbooks edition. Both build on the Antivirus Pro 2012 core by adding parental control, identity protection, backup and restore features for important files, and online backup with 2GB of storage free. The one extra feature the non-Netbook edition has is remote PC access allowing you to access your home PC securely from anywhere.Finally, we have Panda’s top offering and most comprehensive security option Global Protection 2012. While Panda calls it comprehensive, Global Protection doesn’t actually add any new options in terms of threat protection, instead the additional features it offers are more preventative and maintenance based. You get PC optimization tools, a file encryption system, and file shredder for permanent file deletion.It’s also worth mentioning an especially useful feature all versions ship with called Panda SafeCD. It allows a PC that Windows will no longer boot on to be cleaned of all malware. That could save you an expensive trip to a PC repair shop.In all cases these are security solutions aimed at the consumer and therefore geared towards very simple use and set-and-forget controls. You can buy any of the packages for a PC running Windows online now with prices ranging from $49.99 for Antivirus Pro and Netbook editions, to $69.99 for Internet Security and $79.99 for Global Protection. Every edition except Netbooks comes with a 3 PC license making those prices seem a little more reasonable.You can download the 2012 line-up now at the Panda Store, or wait a few weeks for the boxed copies to appear at your favorite retailer.Read more at the Panda SecurityMatthew’s OpinionPicking a security suite for your PC can be a mind-boggling experience. There are a number of big name companies offering multiple solutions, so which one should you opt for, what license should you choose, and how long should you purchase a license for?The best thing to do is check the independent tests such as AV-Comparatives and find out which packages score the best for all round protection. That should give you a shortlist of products which you can look at in more detail. You may find you don’t need a 3 PC license, so check the savings on a single license, then see how much you save by adding multiple years.The high price of some packages is also just getting you to pay for optimization tools rather than pure protection, do you really need that?Just remember, this year’s best performer may not be the best next year, but as long as you stick with one of the more well-known suites you can’t go far wrong.last_img read more

Free Mobile déjà 22 millions dabonnés

first_imgFree Mobile : déjà 2,2 millions d’abonnés ?Depuis son arrivée fracassante sur le marché au début du mois de janvier, Free mobile aurait déjà réuni quelque 2,2 millions d’abonnés. C’est du moins ce qu’estime son concurrent Bouygues Telecom.Un peu plus de trois mois après son lancement, Free mobile aurait déjà conquis plus de 2 millions d’abonnés.

Une estimation basée sur le nombre de demandes de portabilité et de migration des clients entre les opérateurs, largement supérieure à celle établie au début du mois par le PDG d’Orange Stéphane Richard. Ce dernier, qui a indiqué avoir perdu 400.000 clients, avait avancé le chiffre de 1,5 million d’abonnés Free mobile. Bouygues Télécom a de son côté vu 134.000 abonnés s’en aller pour se laisser séduire par les offres de Free, tandis que SFR en aurait perdu 300.000.Des chiffres que Free mobile se refuse à commenter avant le mois de mai prochain, moment où l’opérateur annoncera ses résultats pour le premier trimestre 2012. Mais si l’estimation d’Olivier Roussat est confirmée, elle signifie que Free détient déjà un peu plus de 3% des parts du marché.

Army Promotion System to Advance Enlisted Soldiers on New Standards

first_img ADC AUTHOR The Army will launch a new merit-based promotion system for enlisted personnel that advances qualified soldiers but will also force out those who fail to meet new standards, Military.com reported.Officials hope to have the system in place by 2021, which would include 90-day advance notice period for all promotions from sergeant to sergeant major, according to the report.“This is the first major overhaul to our enlisted centralized promotion board in the 50 years we’ve conducted them,” Sgt. Maj. Dan Dailey said. “This change now truly rewards the most qualified soldiers who are seeking advancement instead of simply promoting people based on seniority.”Soldiers rated below the new standards would be warned that their service could be at risk. If a soldier is deemed “not fully qualified” by a selection board the second time in the same grade, the Army would set a mandatory separation date six months out.Army photo by Sgt.

Pfizer Raises Bid for AstraZeneca to 117 Billion

first_imgU.S. drugmaker Pfizer said on Sunday it had raised its offer for British rival AstraZeneca to 69.3 billion pounds ($116.6 billion), or 55 pounds a share, and would walk away if AstraZeneca did not accept it.But the latest bid was still viewed as falling short of properly valuing AstraZeneca and the company is likely to publicly reject it as early as Monday, according to the Financial Times, which cited people familiar with the matter.Pfizer wants to create the world’s largest drugs company, with a headquarters in New York but a tax base in Britain, where corporate tax rates are lower than in the United States. It has met entrenched opposition from AstraZeneca, as well as many politicians and scientists who fear cuts to jobs and research.The U.S. group said its new offer was final and could not be increased. It said it would not make a hostile offer directly to AstraZeneca shareholders and would only proceed with an offer with the recommendation of the AstraZeneca board.Pfizer also increased the cash element in its offer to 45 percent, with AstraZeneca shareholders set to receive 1.747 shares in the enlarged company for each of their AstraZeneca shares and 24.76 pounds in cash.The new offer represents a 15 percent premium over the current value of a cash-and-share approach made on May 2 – worth 50 pounds a share at the time – which was swiftly rejected by AstraZeneca.Nonetheless, two analysts – Raghuram Selvaraju of Aegis Capital and ISI Group’s Mark Schoenebaum – said they believed the sweetened offer would boost Pfizer’s earnings quickly, with Schoenebaum predicting an uplift from 2015.Pfizer also revealed it had written to AstraZeneca’s chairman on May 16 offering 53.50 pounds a share – 40 percent in cash – but had been told that this still substantially undervalued the company, prompting it to make the latest last-ditch offer.”We believe our proposal is compelling for AstraZeneca’s shareholders and that a Pfizer-AstraZeneca combination is in the best interests of all stakeholders,” Pfizer Chief Executive Ian Read said in a statement.He expressed frustration at AstraZeneca’s refusal to engage in talks and urged the British company’s shareholders to pressure its board to start discussions.”Following a conversation with AstraZeneca earlier today, we do not believe that the AstraZeneca board is currently prepared to recommend a deal at a reasonable price,” Read said. “We remain ready to engage in a meaningful dialogue but time for constructive engagement is running out.”According to the Financial Times, AstraZeneca executives also felt that Pfizer failed to give assurances on other key terms of a deal, including commitments to the UK group’s research and development programs.Two banking sources earlier described 55 pounds a share as the “magic number” at which a deal could get done and Selvaraju of Aegis said Pfizer’s declaration that its offer was “final” would concentrate minds at AstraZeneca.”The main thing that will be likely to get AstraZeneca to engage is that Ian Read, who is a tough guy, has basically said this is our final offer,” he said.In the absence of further discussions or an extension of the deadline for making a firm offer under British takeover rules, Pfizer’s proposal will expire at 5 p.m. London time on May 26.An AstraZeneca spokeswoman said she had no immediate comment on Pfizer’s latest proposal, which would see Pfizer shareholders owning 74 percent of the combined company, with AstraZeneca shareholders holding 26 percent.The increased offer had been widely expected. Pfizer said last week it would consider a higher offer as it urged AstraZeneca’s board to enter talks.DRUG PIPELINE HOPESThe British firm has laid out details of its pipeline of new drugs and argues there is no inevitability about a Pfizer deal, although its management also acknowledges the board would have to consider a compelling bid.Investors have backed AstraZeneca in rejecting 50 pounds a share, but many have said they would want it to engage in discussions if Pfizer came back with an improved offer. They fear AstraZeneca shares will tumble if Pfizer walks away.There has been a mounting political backlash against the proposed deal in Britain, the United States and Sweden, where AstraZeneca has half its roots.The Swedish government launched a concerted effort on Friday against a merger it fears will lead to cuts in science jobs and research, echoing concerns aired by British lawmakers at two parliamentary hearings last week and fears for U.S. jobs in states where AstraZeneca has a large presence.Pfizer’s bid would be the largest foreign takeover of a British firm and is opposed by many scientists and politicians who fear it will undermine Britain’s science base.British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he wants more assurances from Pfizer, and science minister David Willetts said last week he would like to see longer guarantees on investment than the five years currently promised by Pfizer.The UK government has held exploratory discussions with Brussels about strengthening its ability to force Pfizer to honour commitments on jobs and research under European Union rules.But Cameron, head of the free-market Conservative Party, has also said Britain does not want to be seen to be pulling up the drawbridge to foreign companies.Although Pfizer has given a five-year commitment to complete AstraZeneca’s new research centre in Cambridge, retain a factory in northern England and put a fifth of its research staff in Britain, it has said this could be adjusted if circumstances change “significantly”.Pfizer’s Read said on Sunday: “We stand by our unprecedented commitments to the UK government.”The tax aspects of the deal, meanwhile, have sparked anger in the United States, where lawmakers are now considering legislation to prevent so-called corporate inversions, under which U.S. companies re-incorporate overseas to avoid U.S. taxes.Inversions have helped fuel a wave of deals in the pharmaceuticals sector in recent months, but buying AstraZeneca would allow Pfizer to carry out the largest such deal yet.($1 = 0.5942 British Pounds)last_img read more

Ethiopian Restaurants Foster Community in Diverse Silver Spring

first_imgSILVER SPRING, Maryland – Beginning in the mid-1970s, war and political turbulence led a large number of Ethiopians to flee their home country. Many of these emigrants came to the United States, with a particularly high number settling in the Washington region.Thanks to a welcoming environment and local educational institutions, as well as legislation over the decades that eased immigrant entry into the United States, many Ethiopians were eager and able to stay in the area and put down roots.Abyssinia Restaurant in Silver Spring, one of many Ethiopian eateries that have enriched the Washington region. (Mia O’Neill/Capital News Service)“This area became a hub for Ethiopians,” Dr. Getachew Metaferia, an Ethiopian native and professor of political science at Morgan State University, told Capital News Service. “They contributed to the dynamics of multiculturalism.”As this community has grown, it has infused within local neighborhoods vestiges of native Ethiopian culture, from music to language to art. Montgomery County even has a sister city in Ethiopia, the ancient former royal city of Gondar.Perhaps the most prominent contribution of Ethiopian immigrants to the Washington area, though, has been food.“A night out at an Ethiopian restaurant is as much a tradition here as an outing to a deep-dish pizzeria might be in Chicago,” Jessica Sidman wrote in Washingtonian magazine in January.Today, Ethiopian communities – and thus, restaurants – have spread from their traditional neighborhoods within the District of Columbia (Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and, more recently, Shaw) to several of Washington’s suburbs, most notably Silver Spring.Here, Ethiopian cuisine has become a defining food staple, even in one of Maryland’s most ethnically diverse suburbs on the edge of the nation’s capital. (Thirty-four percent of Montgomery County, where Silver Spring is located, is foreign born, according to a Capital News Service analysis).Along the main blocks of Georgia Avenue and Fenton Street are dozens of Ethiopian restaurants, nestled among Chinese, French, Greek, Italian and other international dining options.For some Ethiopian restaurant owners, it was the success of existing establishments that prompted them to start their own businesses in Silver Spring.Solomon Abdella owns and manages Abyssinia Restaurant on Georgia Avenue. “I saw some Ethiopian restaurants being successful,” Abdella told Capital News Service. “(My wife and I) wanted to try it.”Now in its eighth year, Abyssinia has established itself as a comfortable, family-run business serving up authentic Ethiopian dishes: primarily vegetables and meat paired with injera, the traditional, pancake-like Ethiopian bread that comes with most meals.Despite the restaurant’s success so far, Abdella thinks achieving long-term staying power will depend on how well Abyssinia is able to cater equally to both Ethiopian and non-Ethiopian customers.“If your business (serves) 50 percent Ethiopians and 50 percent Americans, you’ll be successful,” he said. “We’re going towards that.”One way Abyssinia is trying to appeal to non-Ethiopian diners is by offering more familiar American food options alongside native Ethiopian dishes. For example, with any meal, customers can substitute spaghetti or rice for the usual injera.It’s part of a growing trend of cultural fusion among Ethiopian restaurants in Silver Spring. In addition to traditional lunch and dinner places like Abyssinia and others, more and more alternative, Americanized Ethiopian eateries – from coffee shops to fast-food restaurants – are popping up in the area.In addition, the Ethiopian Community Center in Maryland hosts an annual Ethiopian Day Festival each summer, which gives participants a taste of Ethiopian culture through food, live music, dancing, comedy and more.For Abdella, who has lived in the United States since 1981, the rising interest from people of all backgrounds in Ethiopian culture is reflective of the welcoming, stable community he’s found in Silver Spring.“There are a lot of Americans and a lot of Ethiopians,” he said. “I have a very good connection with the community.”When the first wave of Ethiopians started coming to the United States, however, most didn’t intend to stay. Before the surge of Ethiopian immigration in the 1970s, an earlier group arrived in the 1950s – but only to study.After World War II, then-Emperor Haile Selassie began sending promising Ethiopian intellectuals to the United States for their educations, Metaferia said. Washington’s Howard University, in particular, emerged as a social and intellectual hub free of discrimination.“Howard University, because of its history, had open arms for people of color,” Metaferia said, adding that the historically black university embraced the notion of pan-Africanism (the idea of commonalities among all people of African descent).Still, most of these students planned to return to Ethiopia afterwards, Metaferia said. The goal, he said, was for the country’s brightest young minds to gather knowledge abroad, then return home with the aim to make Ethiopia stable and prosperous state.“Immigration was not in the DNA of Ethiopians,” he explained. “They just wanted to work in their country and help build the nation.”But things changed in 1974, when a brutal military dictatorship seized power in Ethiopia.“There were gross human rights abuses,” said Metaferia, who himself arrived in the country to study at Howard in 1977. Intellectuals and others who didn’t support the new socialist government were persecuted, he said.Within the United States, Washington became the primary destination to settle, thanks to this existing intellectual hub and the then-African American majority in the district – factors that allowed Ethiopians to feel less threatened by racial discrimination, Metaferia said.A sense of community and belonging is evident when dining at a restaurant like Abyssinia. Although owners like Abdella are working to cater to Americans as well, these restaurants also serve as a unique place for Ethiopians to discuss things like politics, Metaferia said.“These restaurants do not only provide food,” he explained. “They’ve become, also, a focal point where Ethiopians congregate and discuss about their country.”But Metaferia thinks these conversations could be more focused on American government and politics, given recent U.S. policies toward immigrants.As Ethiopia continues to suffer political turmoil under dictatorial rule, the Trump administration’s America-first agenda is making the United States a less and less appealing destination for Ethiopians looking to leave their home country, Metaferia said.Meanwhile in Silver Spring, there have been more immediate concerns regarding attitudes toward immigrants.Some said they’ve noticed a change in racial attitudes since the election of Donald Trump last November.“To be honest, people are afraid,” Seble Lemme, chef and co-owner of Lucy Ethiopian Restaurant, told the International Business Times in January.In the days following Trump’s election, at least two Silver Spring churches were vandalized with pro-Trump, anti-minority messages, according to the International Business Times. (One of the churches was heavily attended by immigrants; the other had a mostly white congregation, but was a prominent supporter of liberal movements such as Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ issues.)Still, many in Montgomery County have shown support for immigrants and minorities in the wake of Trump’s election. A number of local high school students, for example, participated in walkouts protesting the rhetoric of the administration.And for Abdella and many other Ethiopians, Silver Spring and Montgomery County remain a permanent and appealing place to live.“I’ve been here more than I’ve been back home (to Ethiopia),” Abdella said. “Silver Spring is my home.”last_img read more

I am thinking about retiring in a couple of years; in fact, Costa Rica is one of the destinations I am considering.How did you discover Costa Rica, and what do you love most about it?Boomer and I got invited to go on a Cannon Photo Safari to Costa Rica and Drake Bay… Between holding fishing tournaments in different locations and traveling a lot on my own, I find there is an awful lot to like about almost all of Costa Rica. For retirement I thought about looking somewhere up near Playas de Coco. Rimington in his playing days. Courtesy of Dave RimingtonTell me about 9/11. [The Boomer Esiason Foundation had offices in the World Trade Center when the attack occurred.]I was in Nebraska that day. Cantor Fitzgerald had floors 101 through 105 in the World Trade Center and donated office space to The Boomer Esiason Foundation. Between the two, there were 658 people working. The plane hit a couple of floors below and everyone perished. It was like losing 658 friends all at one time. Rimington in New York in the aftermath of 9-11. (Courtesy of Dave Rimington)What would you like to accomplish while in charge of the Athletic Director Post?I would like to see an improvement in the walk-on program [a walk-on is a player without a scholarship who just wants to try out for the team]. These kids come in and bust their butts sometimes waiting two to three years to get to play. They do not have financial aid like someone on a full scholarship. They motivate other players because the other players know there is someone who wants their spot just as badly as they do.I would also like to see better relations between former players and the school. These guys loved playing for Nebraska and they are the greatest promoters of the sports program.Finally, I would like a voice in choosing the permanent replacement. [He accomplished all three in 21 days when Bill Moos, former Athletic Director at Washington State, was named to the post.]What advances have you seen in working cystic fibrosis patients?We invested in research at the foundation and in pharmaceuticals for the treatment of the disease. With breakthroughs of the drug Kalydeco, we have seen outstanding results, and the profits from our investment will keep the Foumdation running for a long time.What is next in the battle against cystic fibrosis?There is a new set of challenges. When I started working with cystic fibrosis the life expectancy of a patient was 19. Today it is almost 40. This brings into play education and joining the work force. We are working very hard in those areas.Read Todd Staley’s Wetline Costa Rica columns here.Todd Staley has run fishing sport operations on both coasts of Costa Rica for over 25 years. He recently decided to take some time off to devote full time to marine conservation. Contact him at wetline@hotmail.com. Courtesy of Dave RimingtonRead more World in Costa Rica interviews with residents and visitors to Costa Rica from around the world.center_img From Syria to Cartago: One immigrant’s four-generation family business in Costa Rica Unless you are a hardcore fan of American football, the name Dave Rimington may not immediately ring a bell. Offensive lineman, especially centers, don’t usually get the recognition that some of the more glamorous positions do. However, in this author’s humble opinion, if Rimington had picked a career in the military instead of football, he would be a five-star general today.Rimington, who has been visiting Costa Rica regularly for 20 years, is one of the most decorated offensive linemen in college football history and the only player ever to win the Outland Trophy in consecutive years (1981 and 1982) at the University of Nebraska. He also won the Lombardi Award in 1982 and placed fifth in the balloting for the Heisman Trophy that same year. He was picked in the first round of the 1983 NFL draft and played professionally for the Cincinnati Bengals, where he snapped the ball for Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason. He finished his career with the Philadelphia Eagles and retired from pro football at the end of the 1989 season.The Rimington Trophy is named in his honor. Since 2000, it has been given annually since 2000 to the nation’s top collegiate center; since 2003, a Rimington Trophy has also been awarded to the top center in each division of college football. Rimington was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1997.last_img read more

Athienitis still cheapest in Nicosia as ministry issues basket of goods survey

first_imgThe consumer protection service of the commerce ministry on Thursday issued the results of its new survey on retail prices of items sold in large supermarkets, and which shops were found to sell at lower prices in each district.The service said that they found the common products sold by all supermarkets chosen for the survey for each district. As these products were not the same in all districts, the ‘common products basket’ is different for each district. The shopping basket did not include products on sale during the date the prices were recorded, on June 16.According to the survey, the cheapest shopping basket in Nicosia was that of Athienitis supermarket, with the 104 common products found to cost €302,26, followed by that of Ioannides in Anthoupoli, that was found to be around €20 more expensive.The cheapest basket in Limassol, was that of Metro in Mouttayiaka, at €356,83 for 106 common products. Sklavenitis’ was the second cheapest as it was found around €8 more expensive.In Larnaca, the cheapest shopping basket was at Stelios supermarket in Livadhia, with 103 common products costing €324,83, followed by that of Sklavenitis costing €36 more.Sklavenitis’ basket was found the be the cheapest both in Paphos and Famagusta.The 148 common products for the Paphos district cost €561,13 in Sklavenitis, and almost €30 more in Metro, which was found to be the second cheapest.In the Famagusta district, Sklavenitis’ shopping basket cost €502,93 for 146 common products, while that of Kokkinos’ was €507,67. Kokkinos however, was found to have 67 products cheaper that Sklavenitis. Both supermarkets are in Paralimni.For the proper assessment of the information given, the service advises consumers to take also into consideration the price index and the number of individual products each supermarket was found to sell the cheapest.The survey (Greek only) may be found here:http://www.consumer.gov.cy/mcit/cyco/cyconsumer.nsf/All/E7CD2B3EA525CB2BC22582CF00296AF9/$file/%CE%A0%CE%B1%CF%81%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%81%CE%B7%CF%84%CE%AE%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%BF%20%CE%9C%CE%B5%CE%B3%CE%AC%CE%BB%CF%89%CE%BD%20%CE%A5%CF%80%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B1%CE%B3%CE%BF%CF%81%CF%8E%CE%BD%2016%20%CE%99%CE%BF%CF%85%CE%BB%CE%AF%CE%BF%CF%85%202018.pdfYou May LikeSmiley MonkeyHer Dad Refused to Let Her Marry, 50 Years Later She Discovers the Reason WhySmiley MonkeyUndoexpressjunkcars.comJunk Cars Express Service In Los Angeles Top Dollarexpressjunkcars.comUndoYoutube video by: PopMalt11 Iconic Movie Scenes Edited to Show the Casts That Almost HappenedYoutube video by: PopMaltUndo Four dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoState Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoLicences for ENI and Total to explore block sevenUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
