Tornek Hopes He’s Earned a Second Term

first_img More Cool Stuff Top of the News As Pasadena residents were waiting for the results of Tuesday’s election, Mayor Terry Tornek was hoping his work to secure the city’s budget while weathering the financial hurricane created by COVID-19 had earned him a second four-year term.As it turned out, revenue from Tornek’s successful “big ask” for a three-quarter cent sales tax a few years back came in handy in helping the city stay above water after the pandemic hit.Tornek is endorsed by outgoing Councilmember Margaret McAustin and Councilman John Kennedy. Most recently, Kennedy and Tornek worked together to craft a police oversight commission in the wake of the officer-involved death of George Floyd on May 25.Pasadena Now: This is one last bid for voters. Why should people vote for you?Terry Tornek: This has been a long campaign and the voters have had a chance to really measure the candidates in terms of what they’re talking about. I’ve talked about the significant issues facing Pasadena and what I’ve done about them so far, and what I intend to do moving forward into the future; homelessness, managing the pandemic, supporting the public schools, safeguarding the environment. And, of course, keeping the city financially strong in the face of all these challenges. That’s been the essence of my campaign. And the contrast in terms of what I believe my opponent has done which is, “If you can’t win on the issues, you move to other things.”What he attempted to do was to use vague catchphrases and smear me on a variety of issues. He’s had a huge campaign warchest. He’s tried to bury the people in mail and use TV ads. I think at the end of the day, based on the responses I’m getting from people as I talk to them and as my volunteers report back to me, I don’t think people are buying it. I don’t think this election could be bought. So my appeal is for the people to investigate these things and reach their own judgments.Point to one or two or three of your biggest accomplishments that you want people to think about and remember when it comes down to vote.Well, the thing is that the reason that we’re not struggling, you know, there’ve been all these headlines about the city of Los Angeles having to furlough people and lay people off. That hasn’t happened in Pasadena. And the reason that hasn’t happened is because I’ve relentlessly pursued building the city’s budget, and reserves so that we’re able to withstand this emergency. It’s not sexy, but it’s good government. And that has really been my emphasis. And the other thing that I’ve been focused on since we’ve been in this crisis is managing the pandemic, making sure that services continue to get delivered and that the city expanded services to deal with this emergency condition that its residents are confronting, and continuing to work on the long-term strategy with regard to homelessness, and continuing to support our public schools.It has been a long campaign and it has been a trying campaign. How different has this been in the midst of COVID?My campaign strategy is one of those things that’s been fundamentally adjusted. My campaign has always been built around going door to door, meeting people on their front porches and talking with them directly. The one benefit of the long campaign period from March to November was that I would have all those months to troop around the city, walk every street the way I have in the past, and reintroduce myself to voters and introduce myself for the first time to new voters. That wasn’t doable. People were not going to welcome me in my mask with open arms on their front porch.So we had to completely change our strategy and I’ve happily been the recipient of a huge turnout of volunteers. I won’’t let them walk for me, but they’re calling for me, they’re writing postcards for me. They’re contacting their friends and neighbors, writing personal emails. That has been a dramatic change. It’s been inspirational to me that there are so many people that are willing to spend their time and their effort and their energy to have the feeling that they’re having an influence in terms of the future direction of the city and feel I’m the right person to reflect that and to keep it going in what’s undoubtedly going to be a pretty tough time.

Cricket News Happy Birthday Herschelle Gibbs – The first man to hit six sixes in ODIs

first_imgBefore Gibbs, Sir Garfield Sobers and Ravi Shastri had become the two players who had hit six sixes in an over but Gibbs became the first to achieve the feat in ODIs and in limited-overs cricket. After Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in Twenty20 Internationals when he clobbered Stuart Broad in Durban in the 2007 World T20.However, Gibbs is best remembered for the remarkable 434 match against Australia in the 2006 ODI in Johannesburg. The 2349th ODI was a record-breaking match, with Ricky Ponting’s brilliant 164 helping Australia to a record 434/4 in 50 overs, the highest-ever score in ODIs. In response, Gibbs launched a breath-taking assault. He notched up his century off 79 balls and he ended up with a mind-boggling 175 off 11 balls, including 21 fours and seven sixes as South Africa chased down 434 to win a dramatic ODI.In the 872 runs scored on that day, Gibbs’ 175 was hailed as one of the knocks for the ages and it established him as one of the best at that time. At the same venue in the 2003 World Cup earlier, Gibbs struck a magnificent 143 against New Zealand but at that time, New Zealand were boosted by a knock of 134 from Stephen Fleming as the Proteas were stunned.The other lasting incident that cricket lovers will remember Gibbs for was his dropped catch off Steve Waugh in the 1999 World Cup encounter in Leeds. Waugh, who was steadying Australia, flicked a full ball to mid wicket where Gibbs took the catch but in trying to celebrate, he could not control the ball and ended up spilling the catch. Waugh, apparently, at that time told Gibbs, “You have just dropped the World Cup, maite.” The drop proved costly and Australia won the match to qualify for the semi-finals where they again met South Africa. The match ended in a tie and South Africa exited the tournament in the most cruel manner.Although his image might have been tarnished by the match-fixing scandal, there is no denying that Gibbs is one of the best batsmen South Africa has ever produced.  New Delhi: Herschelle Gibbs had a stellar career for South Africa starting from 1996 till his final international days in 2008. The right-hander, termed as the next Jonty Rhodes due to his magnificent fielding abilities, was one of the best openers for South Africa for a long time. In 90 Tests, he smashed 6167 runs at an average of close to 42 while in 248 ODIs, he blasted 8094 runs at an average of 36. The South African top order benefited greatly from Gibbs’ ability to change the course of the match with an audacious knock at key moments in the match.On his 45th birthday, we remember Gibbs for three major knocks which have defined his batting and career. In the 2007 World Cup match between South Africa and Netherlands at Warner Park, St. Kitts, Gibbs entered the record books and entered an elite list of players to have achieved this feat. South Africa chose to bat and Jacques Kallis provided them a stable platform. In the 30th over bowled by young wristspinner Daan van Bunge, Gibbs chose to etch his name in the record books.The first ball disappeared over long on while the second ball was dispatched over long off. The third ball was hammered over long off for the third six and thumped a full toss over deep midwicket to near a record. The fifth ball was short and Gibbs crunched the pull shot over wide long off and the record was made when he smashed a flighted ball over deep midwicket to become the first player in ODI history to hit six sixes in an over. Herschelle Gibbs became the first player to hit six sixes in an over in ODIs.Gibbs’ 175 ensured South Africa chase down 434 against Australia.Gibbs dropped Steve Waugh in the 1999 World Cup encounter. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Southampton ‘could replace Nigel Adkins with Di Matteo’

first_imgNigel Adkins is fighting to keep his job at Southampton and could be replaced by Roberto Di Matteo, The People claim.It is suggested that Adkins’ position  is under threat despite him leading the Saints to two promotions, and that he fears the club’s Italian chairman Nicola Cortese will look to appoint Di Matteo if the Chelsea interim boss is not installed as manager at Stamford Bridge this summer.Marcello Lippi is keen to sign Chelsea striker Didier Drogba for Chinese side Guangzhou, according to the Sunday Mirror.They also report that Chelsea are planning to pip Tottenham and both Manchester clubs to the signing of Lille’s Belgian winger Eden Hazard, as do The Sun on Sunday.Meanwhile, Fulham plan to table a £5m bid for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis and are also chasing Tottenham full-back Kyle Naughton and Nottingham Forest’s Chris Gunter, according to The People.There is speculation about England international Jarvis’ future at Molineux following Wolves’ relegation from the Premier League.And it is claimed he is a target for Fulham boss Martin Jol, who is also keen to sign a right-back this summer.Forest defender Gunter has previously been linked with a move to Craven Cottage, while Naughton, who spent last season on loan at Norwich from Spurs, has been mooted as another possible signing.Who was your man of the match against Bayern?

MH370; New search maps

first_imgComplex computer analysis of the ocean floor, refinement of Inmarst satellite communications and unanswered phone calls will define the highest priority for the new search for MH370 which disappeared with 239 passengers and crew six months ago.According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) Chief, Martin Dolan, the search will resume in just three weeks 1800km west of Perth and is as difficult as you can get. “It’s a hell of an area and horribly complicated.”Speaking with AirlineRatings.com Mr Dolan said that “the complexities surrounding the search cannot be understated. But it’s not impossible and we remain confident.” Mr Dolan continued: “There are areas within the highest probability search zone that are of special interest.”That highest probability search zone covers 60,000km and was determined after detailed analysis by five independent teams.The ocean floor mapping of this area with echo sounders which started in June is almost complete and has also revealed such features as extinct volcanoes.Mr Dolan said that Geoscience Australia has been analysing the mapping data obtained by Dutch company Fugro.This has turned up some “interesting hard objects” but Mr Dolan warned that they could just be rocky formations amongst silty seabed.The mapping ships have been using multibeam sonar and in addition to providing depth information for underwater navigation, the sonar also provides information about the composition of the sea floor. The multibeam sonar can identify degrees of hardness, although it cannot distinguish between (for example) the hard metal of an aircraft and the hard rock of the seafloor.The vast majority of hard spots found are most likely to be geological features as opposed to man-made objects. By identifying these hard objects the ATSB is identifying where closer investigation may be required during the deep water search.Mr Dolan however puts more emphasis in the analysis of two unanswered phone calls made by Malaysian Airlines to MH370. According to telecommunications data the first phone call made 17 minutes after radar contact was lost north-west of Malaysia indicated the 777 had turned south, a little earlier than originally thought.This would mean the aircraft would be further south near or beyond Broken Ridge Mr Dolan said. The search will also be dynamic with ongoing analysis of data throwing up refinements. The wreckage of MH370 is also likely buried in silt up to 30m deep according to a renowned oceanographer.Charitha Pattiaratchi, Winthrop Professor of Coastal Oceanography at the University of WA says the search will be “very challenging.”In a exclusive interview with AirlineRatings.com Professor Pattiaratchi said that the sea bed in the search area varied in depth from 237m to 6220m with deep valleys and soaring mountains.“There will be a thick layer of marine snow – biological matter – on the sea bed accumulated over millions of years,” said Prof Pattiaratchi. Three vessels will take part in the search, the Furgo Equator, Furgo Discovery and the Malaysian Go Phoenix.Each will tow a side-scanner sonar on a 10,000m cable which will feed data live to the ship.All the scanners have video capability if something of interest is detected. To search the entire area may take 12 months.last_img read more

Will Self Driving Cars Mean the End for Motorcycling?

first_imgRelated Posts For techies out there, it may seem evident that the self-driving car promises unparalleled levels of safety for the 1.2B car commuters out there. We are in dire need of a solution to reduce the > one million deaths that occur on public roads every year.But with seven billion people in the world today (and an estimated nine billion by 2050) this begs the question “how then do the other six billion people get around, and how safe is it for them?”Over half the employed population of three billion people get from A to B every day on just two wheels, making motorcycling the most popular form of transportation worldwide. This may come as a bit of a surprise unless you’ve visited any of the one hundred largest metropolises in the world.How safe (or unsafe) is motorcycling really?This is where things get interesting.For every billion passenger miles traveled, there are 237.57 motorcycle-related deaths and 6.53 car-related deaths (and 0.02 aviation-related deaths, in case you were wondering.)This means motorcycling claims 36X more lives than driving, making it the most dangerous form of transportation worldwide. And with greater than 1.5 billion people who depend on motorcycles to get to work every day, it is a necessary but insufficient means of transportation.What’s really staggering is just how wide the gap in safety technology is between cars and motorcycles.Remember the joy of driving through rolling hills at sunset with the top rolled down? Few do. Today’s all-powerful millennial consumer didn’t grow up in such romantic times. Millennials, who now represent ¼ of the population in the western world, and as much as half in Asia, grew up with helicopter parents in hyper-protective cars chock full of advanced safety features. These are rolling fortresses with in-aisle entertainment systems and built-in headphones for that numbing commute to school they had to do every day. And such a cocooned upbringing doesn’t exactly translate to fanaticism for the open road. With standard (ho hum) things like ABS being about the only technology feature you can easily find, Millennials need for technology just isn’t represented in the motorcycle category.Do cars need blind spot detection, collision avoidance and the like? If the answer is yes, then we really need to start mapping out far more powerful safety features for a mode of transportation that is far more common and 36 times deadlier.Thankfully, efforts are now underway to close the gap between motorcycle and automotive safety. With BMW’s self-driving motorcycle, Skully’s smart helmet, and in collaboration with Yamaha, Damon’s 360º accident prediction system we are starting to see a near-term future where motorcycling is going to be exponentially safer, smarter and easier than it is today. In fact, Damon is working on an entirely new motorcycling experience. One that augments a rider’s situational awareness tailored to the unique circumstances motorcyclists all too frequently find themselves in.Damon sees a future where everyday motorcycles learn from each other, receiving over the air updates to not just see but even predict accidents before they happen. Longer term, “Damonized” motorcycles will be able to fully avoid accidents, for those times that riders aren’t able to react fast enough.Much like the self-driving car, over the next few years we’ll see autonomy levels for motorcycling look like this:L1 Reactive systems: ABS, traction controlL2 ‘Dumb’ blind spot detection, forward collision warning (same as the state of cars today)L3 Networked, self-learning 360º collision detectionL4 Collision predictionL5 Collision avoidance (automated braking and steering) under critical circumstances**Nobody really wants a two-wheel motorcycle to drive itself.The challenge the industry faces is an interesting one: While drivers may be willing to give up control behind the wheel, it’s harder to imagine motorcycle riders doing the same. Not only because a two-wheel vehicle may be harder to make autonomous, but because motorcycling is flat out fun. Unlike cars, commuting on a motorcycle is the opposite of stressful. Long gone are the romantic days of car ownership. What once was the American dream of freedom on open roads that swept across the world has devolved into the daily grind to get to work that everybody dreads.By contrast, even in the densest cities of the world where riding a motorcycle is the norm, millions of riders frequently get together for group rides with friends who share the same passion for riding. The sport and thrill of winding roads that have long since left the automotive world, still drive the design of motorcycles today. Why? Cars are primarily designed to move families, whereas motorcycles are primarily intended to move just you. And that makes it a sport.Yet here’s the irony in all this: On any given day, you can look at traffic and see four out of five cars with just one occupant. Why is that?At less than 500 years since modernization, North America is a very young place. With 9.2 million square miles to traverse, it’s huge – and for the most part, very unpopulated. The US population density averages 92.2 people per square mile and peaks out at only 1,205 people per square mile (thanks New Jersey!). Compare this to the 37 ancient mega cities each with 10-40 million people. Densities in these cities can exceed 72,000 people per square mile; with windy, narrow streets that have been traveled since before the horse was invented and you start to see why the world buys 160 million motorcycles a year. Billions of people need powered, personal transportation devices that are not much wider than one’s shoulders.As you’ve probably concluded, riding is here to stay, and we have the world’s most exciting motorcycle brands to thank for that. Now let’s help them keep pace with the auto industry and make transportation a lot safer for the rest of the world. Brad is the editor overseeing contributed content at ReadWrite.com.

TOUCH FOOTBALL AUSTRALIA OPERATIONAL STAFF WORKSHOP A SUCCESS

first_imgTouch Football Australia’s Sport Development Unit has been hosting a staff workshop for operational staff from Sunday 23 September to Tuesday 25 September 2007 in Coffs Harbour.The core of Operational staff were already in Coffs Harbour working at the 2007 X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, and the timing of the workshop fitted well from a logistical and cost effective perspective.The conference has brought together 17 TFA staff from all over the nation to increase knowledge and share their experiences in the delivery of the sport.The Operational Workshop has replaced the National Development Officer Conference.TFA National Participation Manager Marianne Maguire, who was a driving force behind the revamped workshop, is excited about the outcomes the conference will achieve.“We really needed something to help develop the knowledge and share the collective ideas of our operational staff who are decision makers as well as key delivery personnel  – people such as Operational Managers, and Sport Development staff who need to continually be challenged and educated to ensure we deliver the sport to its full potential,” Mrs. Maguire said. Topics for presentation have include: Overview of TFA and discussion of roles for staff, Marketing and Branding, Product Knowledge and Professional Development, National Operations Units updates, Trends of the Game, Legal Issues for Affiliates, Finance, Information Technology, and the ASET Program. “Facts Sheet” will be completed by staff members on each of the presented topics to assist with the formation of Operational Manuals for existing and new staff. Touch Football Australia Board of Management Chairman, Mr. Peter Rooney, and Touch Football Australia Chief Executive Officer Colm Maguire were on hand to address the staff and present direction and perspective on the Strategic and Operational endeavours of the sport.“The workshop is another opportunity for us to review, identify, consolidate, and focus on the coordination of our strategic and operational practices. It also provides a fantastic environment for crucial professional development of our staff who are striving to deliver the sport in the best way possible for our affiliated members,” Mr. Maguire said.Guest presenters included Britt Homewood from TFA’s major sponsor Kos Sports X Blades, Michael Broadbent from TFA’s official photographer Michael Broadbent, and various Sport Development Unit staff who gave insights into crucial interest areas that affect the delivery of the sport. The TFA Operational staff, whilst weary from their endeavours in running the X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, embraced the Workshop concept enthusiastically.Western Australia’s Operations Manager Angela Doyle believes the workshop offered the chance for understanding and accord across the TFA organisation, and to share ideas with other staff that make valuable contributions to the knowledge well for all.“The key is communication, it is imperative for success, creating links within the organisation, and strengthening us as a unit to deliver like outcomes for the sport,” Ms. Doyle said.The conference will wind up today with all staff heading back to their respective States to build on the knowledge gleaned from the workshop.last_img read more

Uranium Energy Corp NYSE MKT UEC is pleased to

first_img Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE MKT: UEC) is pleased to announce that the final authorization has been granted for production at its Goliad ISR Project in South Texas.  As announced in previous press releases, the Company received all of the required authorizations from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, including an Aquifer Exemption which has now been granted concurrence from EPA Region 6. Amir Adnani, President and CEO, stated, “We are very pleased to have received this final authorization for initiating production at Goliad. Our geological and engineering teams have worked diligently toward achieving this major milestone and are to be truly commended. We are grateful to the EPA for its thorough reviews and for issuing this final concurrence. The Company’s near-term plan is to complete construction at the first production area at Goliad and to greatly increase the throughput of uranium at our centralized Hobson processing plant.” Please contact Investor Relations with questions or to request additional information, [email protected] It was pretty much the same story in silver, with the big difference being that the high tick came at the 8:20 a.m. EDT Comex open…and that price was recorded by Kitco as $20.16 spot.  There was a secondary high at gold’s 10:35 a.m. EDT high tick…and after that the silver price traded more or less sideways into the 5:15 p.m. close of electronic trading. Silver closed at $20.01 spot…up 9 cents from Monday.  Gross volume up quite a bit from Monday at 32,500 contracts. (Click on image to enlarge) Yesterday, at the 1:30 p.m. close of Comex trading, was the cut-off for this Friday’s Commitment of Traders Report…and I am expecting some deterioration in both metals because of the rallies off the lows during the last reporting period. Not much happened in Far East trading on their Wednesday…and both gold and silver began to develop negative biases beginning around 1:00 p.m. Hong Kong Time.  This has continued into the first couple of hours of trading in London as well.  Gold volume is pretty light…and mostly of the HFT variety.  The dollar index, which had been up about 16 basis points, is now back to unchanged as I hit the ‘send’ button on today’s column at 3:05 a.m. EDT. Yesterday was just another day off the calendar, as Ted Butler is wont to say from time to time, with JPMorgan et al keeping a firm hand on precious metal prices once again. See you here tomorrow. Sponsor Advertisement (Click on image to enlarge) The CME’s Daily Delivery Report showed that zero gold and a very decent 141 silver contracts were posted for delivery on Thursday within the Comex-approved depositories.  This time Goldman Sachs showed up as a short/issuer of note with 84 contracts…followed closely [but not surprisingly] by JPMorgan Chase with 57 contracts out of its client account.  Of course it was JPMorgan Chase as the big long/stopper, with 132 contracts…6 for its client account and…drum roll please…126 contracts for its in-house [proprietary] trading account.  I wonder if JPM’s clients in the silver futures market will ever complain about being royally screwed…without being kissed at the same time?  Just asking.  The link to yesterday’s Issuers and Stoppers Report is here. There was a small withdrawal from GLD yesterday.  This time an authorized participant removed 48,331 troy ounces.  It was different over at SLV, as another 771,804 troy ounces were deposited.  Month-to-date…GLD has had withdrawals totalling 10.27 million ounces…and SLV has added 9.75 million troy ounces. The U.S. Mint had another sales report yesterday.  They sold 3,500 troy ounces of gold eagles…500 one-ounce 24K gold buffaloes…and 226,000 silver eagles.  There was an obvious data entry error in the silver eagle sales…one too many zeros…which will certainly be corrected today sometime, but I think that silver eagles sales number I reported, is correct.  If not, I’ll make amends in tomorrow’s missive. Over at the Comex-approved depositories, they reported receiving a chunky 1,209,885 troy ounces of silver on Monday…and only shipped 15,809 troy ounces of the stuff out the door.  The link to that activity is here. In gold at these same depositories, they received 1,999 troy ounces.  The link to that ‘action’ is here. I have the usual number of stories for a mid-week column…and there are several gold news items that fall into the absolute must read/listen category…so if you’re short on time…and want to concentrate on the ‘vital few’…that’s where I would focus my attention first if I were you. First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.  And then they go back to ignoring you, saying that everybody knew that stuff all along! …what Gandhi might have said if he had joined GATA I wouldn’t read much into yesterday’s price action in any of the precious metals.  However, despite the low volume, there was obviously a willing seller lurking about around 10:35 a.m. EDT yesterday…particularly in gold, where it looked like it was about to take another run at the $1,300 spot price mark.  Silver actually closed above the $20 spot price mark by a penny…but as you already know, that situation wasn’t allowed to exist for long. As you can tell from the two chart below, the lines in the sand…at least for the moment…are $1,300 in gold and $20 in silver.  This situation has existed since the beginning of the last week of June. Here’s the New York Spot [Bid] Silver chart that shows the New York price action on its own, so you can see it in more detail. The silver stocks did just about as well…and Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed up 4.31%.last_img read more
