More at stake

first_imgRe: “Listen to the boss” (Our Opinions, Feb. 23): The long-term consequences of the California Transportation Commission not funding 405 Freeway projects go much deeper than just missing a rare opportunity to relieve congestion on the nation’s busiest corridor. If the CTC does not fund this project, it may well mean that federal transportation officials will interpret that as a sign that California is unwilling to match federal resources for the fixes we need most. Should the CTC not fund the 405 projects, it will be more difficult to secure the federal funds we will need for extensions to the Orange Line, Red Line and Alameda Corridor. – Brendan L. Huffman President, Valley Industry & Commerce Association The real culprit “A fuel-saving downside” (Feb. 22) provided totally misleading information. California highways have been deteriorating for the past 20 years. Sales of hybrids and recent increases in sales of smaller fuel-efficient cars have occurred for only the past two years. I know of no one who traded in their SUV or other high-fuel-consumption vehicle because of operation costs. I have read that taxes collected from fuel consumption have been directed to other uses rather than maintenance of highways and public transportation. Isn’t that the real reason our roads are in poor condition? – Don Evans Canoga Park DONE’s done Re: “Making like a tree” (Our Opinions, Feb. 22): Lisa Sarno, the extremely capable and bright general manager of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, cannot be replaced. The entire system has to be. Sarno followed Greg Nelson, who had more than 10 years’ experience running DONE and could not handle it. The neighborhood councils themselves are like battlefields within their own districts. DONE is done. Start over. – Tom Gibbons Member of the board Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council Like a train wreck Lisa Sarno was a train wreck. In any corporation she would have been terminated, but the Los Angeles city government marches to a different drum beat. After almost destroying the fine work of all the neighborhood councils, what happens? Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa rewards Sarno by appointing her head of the Million Trees initiative. At least the trees cannot protest her work, and we will not hear from her again. – Frank Jacobs Sylmar Oil for roads We should make the oil companies use some of their windfall profits to help rebuild the roads – after all, they are profiting most from the miles driven. – Joe Futterer Topanga Wedge awards With premier acting Academy Awards going to deserving African-Americans Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson, can we finally do away with segregationist awards shows like the BET and Latin Grammys? These types of shows made sense in the days of Jim Crow but they are now simply wedges in the hope of a truly homogenous colorblind society. – Chuck Heinold West Hills This is justice? Re: “A vote for Jessica’s Law is a vote for kids” (Their Opinions, Feb. 25): Bill O’Reilly opines that the various “Jessica’s Laws,” which have been passed in many states, are solutions to child-sex crime. He is not taking into consideration how these laws do not differentiate among levels or types of sex crimes. The ghastly predator to whom he refers in his column deserves the most severe punishment. However, under many states’ versions of Jessica’s Law, the same punishments must also apply to a hypothetical female schoolteacher in her 20s who has consensual sex with a 210-pound, 17-year-old nonvirgin high school football player. How is this justice? – Charles L. Murray Moorparklast_img read more

Salah out of Barca Champions League clash

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Salah was concussed during Liverpool’s 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, May 6 – Liverpool will be without top scorer Mohamed Salah for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, second leg against Barcelona after manager Jurgen Klopp revealed he was concussed in a 3-2 win at Newcastle.The Egyptian was stretchered off at St James’ Park on Saturday due to a head knock sustained as he challenged Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for a high ball. “It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play. So that’s it,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference on Monday.“He feels OK but it is not good enough from a medical point of view that is all. He’s desperate (to play) everything but we cannot do it.”Klopp will also be without Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino due to a groin injury as his side face the huge challenge of trying to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit to make the Champions League final for a second consecutive season.“Two of the world’s best strikers are not available tomorrow night and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes,” added Klopp.“It doesn’t make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it.”Liverpool have a rich history of stunning comebacks in European football, most famously lifting the Champions League in 2005 after trailing the final 3-0 to AC Milan at half-time.In Klopp’s first season in charge in the quarter-finals of the Europa League in 2016, the Reds also came from 3-1 down in the final 25 minutes to beat his old side Borussia Dortmund 4-3.Stop him: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is aware of the huge task his side face to stop Barcelona’s Lionel Messi scoring an away goal at Anfield © AFP / Josep LAGOHowever, the German coach is aware of the extra difficulty of not just scoring at least three against the Spanish champions, but also not conceding a vital away goal to the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez that would leave Liverpool needing to score five to progress.“I imagine the place will be rocking even before we score to be honest, but we not only have to score, we have to deny Barcelona from scoring,” he added.“It doesn’t happen too often that Barcelona don’t score at all. We know how big the challenge is.“This team is so wonderful we will try 100 percent, but that doesn’t mean it will all work out.”While, Liverpool edged a bruising battle with Newcastle to remain in the hunt for a first Premier League title in 29 years, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde could afford the luxury of making 11 changes for a 2-0 defeat at Celta Vigo on Saturday having already sealed the La Liga title.And Klopp admitted he could have one eye on Sunday’s final league game of the season at home to Wolves with his team selection.“We have to make a lot of decisions. Tomorrow night will be the third game in six days and Barcelona changed 11 positions on Saturday, so that is a massive difference as well of course,” he said.“Together with our supporters it was a long season and there is at least a little chance to make it even longer.“But if not, these are the last two home games of an incredible season and I think we should celebrate that with a good performance on the pitch and a very, very good performance in the stands.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Newcastle United announce signing of Henri Saivet from Bordeaux

first_imgNewcastle have announced the signing of midfielder Henri Saivet from Bordeaux.The 25-year-old Senegal international has joined the club for an undisclosed fee, understood to be in the region of £5million, on a five and a half-year contract.Saivet said: “I am very happy to be here at Newcastle. I am really proud to be able to play for this club, and I am really excited at the challenge that lies ahead.“St James’ Park is a really impressive and special stadium. In France, there is nothing that compares to this, and I can’t wait to get out there with my new team-mates and help the team climb the table.”Saivet’s arrival will come as a boost to McClaren, whose side currently sits in 18th place in the Barclays Premier League table and has lost each of its last four games in all competitions 1-0.The former England boss will hope his acquisition, who started his career as a winger, but has lined up in central midfield for Bordeaux this season, is the first of several to arrive at St James’ this month as he battles against relegation.The 54-year-old said: “Henri is someone the club has been watching for a while, and he has developed into an excellent player at Bordeaux.“This is someone with a very good mentality, who is a tough player and a winner. Those are key qualities you need in the Premier League and we are looking forward to seeing him pulling on the Newcastle United shirt.”Saivet came through the ranks at Bordeaux, making his senior debut at the age of 17 and going on to score 23 goals in 178 appearances. 1 Henri Saivet last_img read more

Overbilling of DWP called intentional

first_imgMoret said she would handwrite additional hours into bills to match amounts Stodder told her needed to be reached each month on the DWP account. Under questioning by Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam Kamenstein, Moret said Dowie didn’t tell anyone at the meeting that the process “has to stop.” Dowie and Stodder have pleaded not guilty to allegations that they bilked the DWP of more than $300,000 and overcharged other clients. Their attorneys have said any improper billings were the result of subordinates acting on their own. Jan Handzlik, Stodder’s attorney,in cross-examination, asked Moret whether some addition of hours to the DWP bills could be legitimate. Moret acknowledged some were legitimate additions that occurred after the first draft of bills were submitted to the corporation’s headquarters in St. Louis and before the final bills – including a description of the work performed – were sent to the DWP. But in questioning by Kamenstein, Moret said most of the additions – up to $50,000 a month between December 2002 and January 2004 – were for time not worked. Moret said the additions were to meet aggressive projections Dowie had set for the DWP account and to reach an office goal of a $2 million profit in 2003. “I’d write up time to get to the number we needed to get to,” Moret testified. “(They) were largely false entries to meet our projections.” She said Stodder would tell her how much money was needed to make up for how other accounts were doing. She said she tried to add more hours for Dowie, who billed at $425 an hour, Stodder at $315 an hour and her own time at $245 an hour. Moret said Dowie made a point of telling her and others that his secretary handled his billing hours and that he didn’t handle any others’ billings. At such high rates, she said, it meant less time had to be added. Still, she said, hours were added “across the board” to a number of other people’s accounts working on the DWP. The DWP account was dramatically inflated on a couple of occasions, including December 2002, Moret said, when she said Stodder called her office and said Dowie had instructed him to “write-up,” or inflate, the $3 million-a-year DWP account. Moret said the account already had been inflated that month, and that with some additional legitimate revenues she found, she didn’t think additional write-ups would be necessary. But in early January Moret said she was asked to find an additional $30,000. Prosecutors entered into evidence an e-mail from Dowie to Stodder that read, “How much could we pad DWP … could it withstand another 30k?” Moret said she told Stodder in a conversation that there was “no way” they could add that much – about 70 hours to Dowie’s account – for the month, but that she probably could add $15,000 “across the board.” She testified that she was worried that DWP executive Randy Howard – who testified Friday that he went to his superiors with concerns about the bills – was already raising questions. Stodder, in an e-mail to Dowie said, “Okay, Monique thinks she can slip through another 15k without incurring too much more scrutiny.” Dowie responded in another e-mail, “OK, let’s do it.” Eight months later in August 2003, Moret said she inflated the DWP bill with $50,000 in unworked hours at Stodder’s direction. She said employees were asked whether they could add hours, and some said they could work them in the next month. Moret said unworked hours were added in lump sums, but that it was becoming increasingly unwieldy to make up work to correspond with the hours claimed on the DWP’s bills. In preparing the August 2003 bill, Moret said in an e-mail, “I need to enter activities for just about everyone that will pass the smell test.” Moret said she became increasingly frightened amid press coverage of the Fleishman-Hillard contract, and a critical audit by City Controller Laura Chick that questioned a number of the billings. The company eventually paid the city nearly $6 million to settle a lawsuit over alleged overbillings. “I wanted to tell the truth,” Moret said of her reason for cooperating with the government. “I was extremely nervous and extremely scared.” Cross-examination of Moret is scheduled to continue today. beth.barrett@dailynews.com (818) 713-3731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The former head of Fleishman-Hillard’s Los Angeles office was told in a 2003 meeting that Department of Water and Power bills were being inflated but did not stop it, a former colleague testified Tuesday. In the third day of the conspiracy and wire fraud trial of former executives Doug Dowie and John Stodder, Monique Moret testified under immunity that she attended a meeting at which Stodder substantiated claims by an employee who had just resigned that hours were being added to DWP billings for work that was not done. Moret – a vice president in the public affairs office who reported directly to Stodder – said that at his instruction she also added unworked hours worth tens of thousands of dollars for over a year beginning in December 2002. Moret said Dowie was informed about the issue in an October 2003 meeting precipitated when executive Fred Muir resigned and in a heated exchange with Dowie alluded to fraudulent DWP billings.

Dowie then asked whether Muir had any “evidence,” Moret said. Moret said she and Stodder answered that they didn’t think so.

DD HEALTH: GOOD FOOD CHOICES FOR GOOD CHOLESTEROL

first_imgDD HEALTH: Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in the body. It plays a vital role in how every cell works – but having too much cholesterol in the blood is one of the risk factors in the development of coronary heart disease.One in two Irish people over 50 have high cholesterol and heart disease is still the biggest killer in this country.It is possible for many people to reduce their cholesterol by 10% – 15% just by eating healthily. Making small but significant changes to the diet is really worth the effort. In Ireland and Europe generally, it is recommended that levels of cholesterol in the blood should not be above 5.0mmol/l ( about 190mg/dl).For example, the total amount in the body of a person weighing 70 kilograms (10 stones) is around 140 grams, and the amount present in the blood is 3.6 to 7.8 m.mol per litre or 150 to 250 milligrams per 100 millilitres.A blood-cholesterol level above 6 m.mol per litre (238 mg per 100 ml) is considered high, depending on age.A huge number of factors such as genetics, nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle factors can influence the type and amount of cholesterol in the body There are two kinds that are particularly important.LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein)-cholesterol, is often called “bad cholesterol”, since it contains a relatively high amount of cholesterol that can build up in the arterial walls. However, HDL (High Density Lipoprotein)-cholesterol is able to remove and carry cholesterol from the arteries and take it to the liver, where it is eliminated – which is why it is often called “good cholesterol”.Our livers make a lot of our body’s cholesterol, but what we eat also affects our cholesterol levels too. Making the right food choices can really help you to manage your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease as well as other health problems.Good Cholesterol foods:. Piece of red meat. Salmon. Some eggs. Lentils. Garlic bulb. Unsalted nuts. Mixed Herbs Bad Cholesterol Foods:. Processed meat – Salami. Bacon. Block of butter. Pate. Biscuits. SaltFats and protein rich foodsEat less cakes, biscuits, pastries, confectionary, fried foods and take aways as this will help to reduce some of the bad fats in your diet such as trans fats and saturated fats.Reduce the amount of processed meats you eat (bacon, salami, burgers etc) and limit your red meat to 3 six ounce servings of lean red meat a week.If you like eggs and your cholesterol is high, you can eat between 4 to 6 eggs per week, unless your doctor advises you to reduce further. Fish and fish oilsEating oily fish (such as salmon, trout, fresh tuna, sardines, herring and mackerel) twice a week can help to reduce the risk of heart disease.Soluble fibreEat porridge or unsweetened muesli, fruits and pulses (peas, beans and lentils).Fruit and vegetablesEating at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day can help to reduce your risk of heart disease.Irish men, especially in the younger age group only eat about half the recommended portions of fruit and vegetables, according to the Irish Heart Foundation. In general, we eat less fruit and vegetables than other EU countries. However, it is important to eat at least five portions every day, including:• Fresh vegetables, cooked or raw.• Salads.• Potatoes eaten in their jackets, without added fat.SaltReducing the amount of salt you eat will also help keep your blood pressure down. Look out for hidden salt in certain breads, breakfast cereals, processed meats and cheese, dried soups and sauces, salty crisps and nuts.AlcoholToo much alcohol can damage the heart muscle, increase blood pressure and also lead to weight gain. However, moderate drinking (between 1 and 2 units of alcohol a day) can help protect the heart in men aged over 40 and women who have gone through the menopause.Also try to exercise regularly.DD HEALTH: GOOD FOOD CHOICES FOR GOOD CHOLESTEROL was last modified: May 28th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:(Low Density Lipoproteinbad cholesteroldonegal daily healthgood cholesterolHigh Density Lipoproteinhow to lower cholesterol levelslast_img read more

O DOMHNAILL CHALLENGES HEALTH MINISTER ON ‘DISGRACEFUL’ HOME HELP CUTS

first_imgDonegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has challenged the Minister for Health James Reilly on his disgraceful cuts to home help hours.Speaking on a Fianna Fáil Private Members Motion in the Seanad this week, Senator Ó Domhnaill said Older people and those with disabilities are appalled at the HSE plans to cut spending on home help services by €8million between now and Christmas.“This amounts to a reduction of up to 450,000 home help hours and when added to the cuts implemented last January, it will result in just under 1million hours withdrawn in 2012 alone. “These savage cuts are not only deeply unfair, they make absolutely no financial sense. By slashing supports for patients who currently live at home, Minister Reilly is essentially pushing more people onto the already overburdened hospital system.“Thousands of people who are facilitated in living independently and with dignity in their own home will no longer be able to do so without home help supports. They will have nowhere else to go but hospitals and nursing homes.H e added “Enough is enough. From the moment Fine Gael and Labour took up office, they have targeted people with disabilities for a raft of unfair and short-sighted cuts. These people simply cannot endure any more cuts. In the Taoiseach’s own area of north Mayo, Coroner Dr. Eleanor Fitzgerald said that reductions in home help services lead to an increase in deaths from chronic illness. This government cannot continue to ignore the fact.”  O DOMHNAILL CHALLENGES HEALTH MINISTER ON ‘DISGRACEFUL’ HOME HELP CUTS was last modified: October 11th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BRIAN O’DOMHNAILLHEALTH MINISTERHOME HELP HOURSlast_img read more

first_imgA man has been told he will serve a minimum of sixteen years in jail for the murder of a Derry man and the attempted murder of a Letterkenny man. Paddy Harkin, 49, was beaten to death with a hammer in his flat in Bayview Terrace in February 2011. He died from head injuries.Paul Greatbanks, 48, whose address was given as Maghaberry Prison, had pleaded guilty to the murder. He also admitted trying to kill Letterkenny man Paul Mythen in the same incident.Mr Mythen was left permanently disabled.Greatbanks, who is originally from Kent in England, was sentenced to 15 years in prison with a further six on license for the attempted murder of Mr Mythen.Mr Justice Horner told Greatbanks the photographs he had seen of the incident “demonstrate acts of unspeakable brutality” on his part.He also told Greatbanks that both his victims “were entirely innocent men who did nothing to deserve that happened to them”.“The defendant bears full responsibility for these violent and vicious attacks resulting in the deceased’s death and Paul Mythen’s profound physical and mental incapacity,” said the judge.“Effectively two innocent, decent men have had their lives, in one case ended and in the other case destroyed, by the defendant.”MAN JAILED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER OF LETTERKENNY MAN was last modified: April 19th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
