first_imgThe NSW Junior State Cup went off without a hitch in Wollongong, with no wild weather or electrical storms…there was simply 277 teams of enthusiastic young Touch players and 777 fine games of Touch. The Manly Sea Eagles were amongst the strongest overall performers, grabbing four of the ten Championship grand finals, as well as one runner-up. Wagga Wagga and Wollongong each claimed two Championships grand final titles, with Parkes and Muswellbrook claiming one each.Wollongong seem to be thriving with the event on their home turf, also claiming three Plate final titles. With Wollongong sides making two Championship and three Plate finals and going on to win all five, the hometown support must surely make a difference in the big matches.

Well completion companies report sharp slowdown in fourth quarter activity

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Companies whose services are needed for hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” of oil and gas wells are reporting tough times thanks to a slowdown in drilling in Western Canada in the fourth quarter.Shares in both Trican Well Service Ltd. and Source Energy Services Ltd. trended lower Thursday after the Calgary-based companies reported lower sales in the last three months of 2018.Fracking involves injecting water, sand and chemicals under high pressure to crack tight rock formations deep underground and allow trapped oil and gas to flow into the well to be produced. Trican, whose crews step in after a well is drilled to make it ready for production, reported a fourth-quarter net loss from continuing operations of $159 million (including a $134-million goodwill impairment charge), compared with a net profit of $14 million a year earlier.It says revenue dropped by 40 per cent to $168 million from $280 million in the same period of 2017 as its total job count fell by 30 per cent to 2,054 from 2,909.Source Energy, which supplies the specialized sand used in fracking, reported in an operational update that sales fell by 33 per cent to 373,000 tonnes in the fourth quarter from 557,000 tonnes in the same quarter in 2017.The Petroleum Services Association of Canada said last month it expects 5,600 wells to be drilled in the country this year, down from 6,948 in 2018, due to what it calls deteriorating investor confidence in Canada.last_img read more

ExAlgerian Minister Accuses Morocco of Sending Drugs to Algeria

Rabat – The president of the Rally of Algerian Hope (TAJ) party, Amar Ghoul, claimed that Morocco is sending “hashish and drugs” to Algeria.When journalists asked Ghoul, the former Algerian minister of tourism, about Moroccan-Algerian political ties in a press conference on Saturday in Algeria, the politician said, “Morocco is the big winner of the trade balance with Algeria.”He added that trade with Morocco is lopsided: “These people take our oil, our sugar, and all consumer products subsidized to billions of dollars. They send us hashish and drugs instead.” Ghoul’s statement came only a few days after the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued an indirect reaction to King Mohammed VI’s dialogue offer.While the Moroccan government showed interest in normalizing ties with Algeria, Morocco’s eastern neighbor called for a meeting of the Arab Maghreb Union foreign ministers to discuss issues hindering Maghreb unity.Read Also:Algerian Official Accuses Morocco of ‘Flooding’ Algeria with DrugsOn November 6, the monarch called on Algeria to be involved in a direct and frank dialogue with Morocco to break the “stalemate” that hinders Maghreb unity.In line with the King’s offer, Moroccan political parties, including the Justice and Development Party (PJD), announced their intention to meet with Algerian parties.Some Algerian parties, including Ennahda, disapproved of the initiative, saying that the issue between Rabat and Algiers should be solved between the two governments and not between parties.Ghoul also accused Morocco of “throwing” irregular migrants into Algeria.He added that Morocco blames Algeria for expelling migrants. “Their representative at the UN then declares that it is the fault of Algeria.” In October, the United Nations urged Algeria to “stop arbitrary expulsion” of migrants. The News24 outlet reported in July that Bouteflika’s government had resumed expelling migrants into the Sahara desert.Algeria has also previously accused Morocco of “flooding” Algeria of drugs.Most recently, in August, the former secretary general of Algeria’s National Liberation Front (FLN), Djamel Ould Abbes, claimed that Morocco brings “enormous quantities of drugs into the Algerian territory.”The claims were similar to several statements made by Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdelkader Messahel in October 2017. Messahel accused Moroccan banks and airlines of transporting and selling cannabis.He also accused Morocco of “laundering drug money in sub-Saharan Africa.”Algeria, however, denies that mafias in its country have been marketing hazardous psychotropic pills in Morocco, including ecstasy. In 2017, Morocco’s General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) announced that seizures of psychotropic pills from Algeria “witnessed a very alarming rise over the past years.”DGSN said that it confiscated 808,022 psychotropic pills in 2016, compared to 260,152 in 2015 and 293,282 in 2014. read more

UN fund backs water projects to help rural poor in Syria and

The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has announced the creation of two new programmes designed to improve irrigation for needy Ethiopian families and to overcome water shortages and create jobs in north-eastern Syria.Under an agreement signed today in Rome, IFAD’s headquarters, about 190,000 families living in the Syrian provinces of Deir Ezur, Hassake and Raqqa – which are suffering from dwindling water supplies, falling agricultural production and rising unemployment – are expected to benefit from a $58 million project.The scheme, funded in part by a $20 million low-interest loan from IFAD, will help farmers modernize inefficient irrigation systems, support the creation of farmers’ and craftworkers’ marketing associations and sustainable water user groups, and assist a Syrian bank to set up a microfinance system for poor locals.Hamid Abdoull, IFAD’s programme manager for Syria, said the project would help small farmers to manage their resources more sustainably and develop their own small businesses.“We will address the severe water deficit and promote microfinance, micro-enterprise development, marketing, and partnerships with the private sector,” Mr. Abdoull said.In the Ethiopian agreement, signed yesterday, more than 60,000 families are expected to benefit from a $57.7 million project that is financed in part by a $20 million grant from IFAD and a separate $20 million loan from the same agency.This project will develop irrigation schemes for about 12,000 hectares of land, reduce land degradation and improve catchment-area planning in a country plagued by frequent droughts and unreliable rains.The funds will also be used to promote seed production and to establish home vegetable gardens, mainly for local women. 14 June 2007The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has announced the creation of two new programmes designed to improve irrigation for needy Ethiopian families and to overcome water shortages and create jobs in north-eastern Syria. read more

No budget will pass that cuts homeless services – Dublin Lord Mayor

first_imgTHE LORD MAYOR of Dublin has warned that cuts to homeless services in this year’s budget for the city are off the table.Speaking to TheJournal.ie, Oisín Quinn said that the city manager’s draft budget , which contains over €5 million in cuts to homeless services, is being worked on, but homeless services are a red-line issue.“We are working with the city manager and representatives from government on some of the issues, particularly where we feel there is more income.In my view, a budget will not pass that contains a cut to homeless services.  And I would say the same for supports for disabled people.Quinn said that cutting homeless services now would be wrong.“You can see it just from walking around the city that the problem is getting worse.“The business and tourism lobbies want this tackled and people want to know that it is being dealt with. Otherwise they will just go to one of the suburban shopping centres.”Quinn added that the government decision not allocate the previously promised 80 per cent of the Local Property Tax to councils was a blow.“The LPT funding would put us comfortably in the black, but we will continue to work on this budget.”The five Sinn Féin councillors on the council have called for the budget to be defeated outright.“Councillors are being asked to accept in this City Council budget such disgraceful cuts as those to homeless services and to housing adaptation grants for older and disabled people, arising directly from Government austerity cuts. We in Sinn Féin will not do so.“We call on all Dublin City Councillors to totally reject this budget and to make a stand for the citizens of this city and for local democracy.”Read: Donegal County Council on verge of collapse after failure to agree budgetRead: Plans for St Teresa’s regeneration publishedlast_img read more

Anchorage School District releases proposed budget amendments

first_imgThe Anchorage School District released their suggestions for adjusting next year’s budget on Friday. Under the superintendent’s proposal, the district would cut 57 classroom teachers instead of 143. The proposal does not add back in more than 48 support staff positions that were cut in the initial budget.Additionally, one-time funding from the legislature will provide money for three-year long initiatives, like early literacy coaches, science curriculum materials, and other programs. $15 million from the state legislature was also allotted specifically to support Anchorage’s eight charter schools over the next three years.In a press release from the district, Superintendent Ed Graff said “It’s important that we look ahead and designate our resources on practices that are sustainable and not solely focus on the year in front of us. I believe this proposed budget adjustment package is a solid combination of prioritizing classroom teachers  and investing in high-value initiatives that are focused on improving student achievement  while remaining fiscally responsible.”The budget proposal will be discussed during the ASD School Board meeting on Monday night at 6:30 pm in the ASD Education Center on Northern Lights.last_img read more

DICE confirms Battlefield 4 set in modern day

first_imgWith the release of Battlefield 3 $5.99 at Amazon , DICE introduced its new Frostbite 2 game engine and brought the series bang up-to-date with its modern day setting. With Battlefield 2 getting its final new release in 2006, gamers wouldn’t be that surprised to wait a few more years for Battlefield 4 to arrive. That’s not the case, however, and you will be able to play the new game next year.Battlefield 4 was announced in July without any real detail being divulged. However, with the Game Developer Conference in Europe running this week, DICE has decided to release some small slither of new details.It has been confirmed that Battlefield 4 will take place in the same modern day setting as BF3, and it will not take 6 years to get it ready to ship. Karl Magnus Troedsson, general manager at DICE, stated that they expect a much quicker turnaround mainly because gamers want more Battlefield as soon as possible. They also aren’t developing another new engine for BF4 to use, which saves years on development time.The decision to stick with a modern day setting is because DICE believe they can do a lot more with it, and this could be where the series stays for a number of releases. I doubt many will complain about that.DICE must also be looking at the success Activision has had with the Call of Duty series, which manages a release a new title each year and sells millions with every iteration. DICE and EA clearly both want the same from the Battlefield series, even if they don’t deliver every 12 months.If you’re a Battlefield fan, then the good news is you will be able to play Battlefield 4 next year. However, EA will be forcing you to purchase another game in order to gain access. The beta will be limited to gamers who pre-order and purchase the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition, which launches on October 23.The most surprising thing about that limited beta access is it doesn’t seem to include gamers who signed up to the Battlefield Premium service. Surely they need some beta love, too?For the time being it seems Battlefield: Bad Company games have taken a backseat, but Troedsson said we shouldn’t rule out another Bad Company game appearing at some point in the future. For now the focus is on the main series, though.Read more at Joystiqlast_img read more

Most were killed and made to disappear.This trial ended with the 85-year-old Bignone convicted of illegal arrests, kidnapping, robbery, torture and murder against 23 of the detainees, including seven women who gave birth inside the clandestine prison. Bignone is already jailed for other crimes, but the additional conviction pleased Gaston Mena, whose mother gave birth to a sibling who was probably illegally adopted after the mother was killed.Mena said the sentence provides “closure, but we keep looking for my brother or sister.”(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Terrorism warning for travellers to Indonesia

first_imgGovernments across the world are issuing terrorist warnings to travellers planning to go to Indonesia.Key federal governments across the world has stressed the need for tourists to be careful travelling in Indonesia after the United States issued a fresh warning of possible terrorist attacks in the country.The US in recent days warned of a heightened terrorism threat against American banks and hotels in Indonesia’s second largest city, Surabaya.Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs has since updated its own travel advice urging travellers to show a “high degree of caution” though it does not call for people to reconsider visiting Indonesia.Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, said the renewed advice from her department had come in response to advice from the security agencies.Surabaya, in East Java, has some history with local terrorism, though Indonesian security experts told The Jakarta Post an immediate attack was unlikely there because radical Islamists did not currently have strong support networks there as reported by the Sydney Morning Herald.A statement on the Australian Government’s website says “we continue to receive information that indicates that terrorists may be planning attacks in Indonesia, which could take place at any time”.“Gatherings of Westerners over this period could also be appealing targets for terrorists. Terrorists have previously attacked or planned to attack such places, including nightclubs, bars, restaurants, international hotels, airports and places of worship in Bali, Jakarta and elsewhere in Indonesia. These types of venues could be attacked again” the statement reads.Source = ETB Travel News: Lewis Wisemanlast_img read more
