first_imgBOTH Catz and Keble were relegated from last season’s premier division and each side was eager to demonstrate their wish to return to the top flight in this hotly contested affair on the Woodstock Road.It became apparent early on in the game that this would be a very close encounter, with both sides enjoying a fair share of the ball and creating numerous opportunities. For St. Catz, midfielder Gerrard Cole was inflicting most of the damage, his mazy runs down the left flank causing all manner of trouble for the Keble defence. It was one such run and rolled ball across the box that found striker MacNaughton bearing down on goal. Unfortunately he did not have a finish to match Cole’s run and the shot was scuffed wide.  Keble relied heavily on midfielders Askham and Singh to pose their threat and despite his diminutive stature, the sheer determination of Askham gave him that extra couple of inches to dominate the aerial battle. Several balls were floated in from Keble’s left flank, but each agonisingly eluded right winger Eckersley.It was a frantic and frenzied five minute period midway through the first half however, where all the goals were scored. Another driving run from Cole freed up striker Taylor, whose cross come shot was parried over superbly by keeper Unwin. Taylor then returned the favour by delivering a low flighted cross which Cole pounced upon at the near post to give Catz the lead.Keble barely had time to assess their defensive error when an overlapping run from assured left back Ekhase forced another corner for Catz. Again Keble failed to deal with the danger and it was a towering leap from defender O’Keefe-O’Donovan that gave Catz their second.Keble rallied well and amidst some Catz back-slapping, hit back immediately. Captain Singh led the charge and found himself with just the keeper to beat. He made no mistake as he coolly slotted into the bottom right corner.The second half again saw numerous chances for both sides. Catz’ best efforts however, were comfortably dealt with by rock-solid centre back Orpin-Massey who hardly put a foot wrong all game. Keble pressed tirelessly for the equaliser with lofty forward Gajdus turning even the most hopeful long ball into something dangerous.On 75 minutes Keble believed they had got their reward when a delightful ball in from Collins was flicked past the keeper by substitute Parry. Wild scenes of jubilation were cut short however, when the Catz linesman ruled an apparent offside. No amount of protest from the Keble ranks could change the ref’s decision and the goal was disallowed. This decision seemed to extinguish the Keble challenge as the game petered to a finish.Keble captain Singh was frustrated by the result, “We certainly felt it was a goal and are gutted to come away with nothing.”last_img read more

first_imgNext week in New Orleans, the three-day NOLA Crawfish Fest will bring together some of the finest New Orleans musicians, paired with a couple choice out-of-towners. Among the latter category is Cris Jacobs, a talented singer-songwriter formerly of Baltimore’s The Bridge, who has a wonderful collaborative project Neville Jacobs with Crescent City icon Ivan Neville. Cris was kind enough to give B. Getz of Live For Live Music the 411 on what’s going down in New Orleans and what he’s been up to in recent months.L4LM: Cris! Thanks so much for your time. Where are ya at right about now?Cris Jacobs: In Atlanta right now, in the middle of a little tour. We played at the City Winery.L4LM: Right on! With Ryan Montbleu? You’re on tour with him right now?Cris: Yeah, we are doing this thing where I open solo and then play as the guitar with his band.L4LM: Oh that’s pretty awesome. Is Marc Friedman playing bass?Cris: Yeah. He is.L4LM: Oh, that’s a killer band. I’ll have to check that out sometime.Cris: We play this Thursday in NOLA with Anders Osborne at Tips.L4LM: That’s a sweet gig! Thanks for giving me a few minutes of your time to talk about the Crawfish Fest and the collab with Ivan Neville. You’re doing the Crawfish Fest with the Neville Jacobs project, right? Can you tell me a little bit about how that came together, how you and Ivan linked up?Cris: Ivan and I sort of became friends when I was with The Bridge. We used to cross paths with Dumpstaphunk all the time at festivals and what not. I actually bumped into him at couple Jazz Fest ago. I happened to walk into Harrah’s to play some poker on some idle time and happened to bump right into Ivan, and it was like, “Oh you like to play cards too?” So we sat down and played cards together for a few hours and chatted and realized we had a lot in common, so we sort of became friendly through that. . . . That sort of solidified it. By way of music, we were playing around together one day and decided we should sit down and write some stuff and put something together. You know just came up with the idea and we did! That’s how it all came about.L4LM:  That’s pretty cool man. I didn’t really understand cause y’all come from such divergent backgrounds when I saw the project—it kind of struck me by surprise. I think that’s the beauty of the scene, cause it’s not everyday cats like you two find each other.Cris Jacobs: We’ve become good friends, and, you know, there’s definitely pretty natural chemistry there musically, so it’s been fun.L4LM: Is it going to be just the two of at the Crawfish Fest, or are y’all going to have guys playing with you?Cris: Oh no, we got Tony Hall, Brady Blade, and then potentially a couple of other nice special guests that haven’t been confirmed, But the band—the band is absolutely crushing. They are really good.L4LM: Yeah that’s a killer rhythm section you got there with Brady and Tony. Absolutely.Cris: They recorded the Neville Jacobs record with us, so that’s the core group right there.L4LM: I see you also have some Chickie Wah Wah gigs while you’re down there. What are you doing over there?Cris Jacobs: I‘m doing the NOLA Crawfish afterparty the night of the day I have the gig with Neville Jacobs. I’m going over there to do a thing with Papa Mali, Brady Blade on drums, so who knows what we’re going to get into. We’ve never played together, so it should be fun and interesting. I love his stuff, and I’ve enjoyed talking to him about it. Seems like it’s going to be a real nice vibe, so I am looking forward to that and maybe I shouldn’t mention the next thing. Shaggy will get mad at me….L4LM: Well, it’s on your schedule, but it doesn’t say anything other than just the date and schedule, so it’ll give our readers something to wonder about and come see what’s going down the second night. Well how about the Carver Theatre on Sunday night?Cris: Yeah, I don’t really know yet. It’s a wild line up. It’s like Cyril Neville, Brady Blade, Nikki Glaspie, Zack Starkey. . . . I was asked to participate in it, and that’s the beauty of some of these things. You have no idea what’s going to happen; just a bunch of musicians getting together and trying to make the best of it. That’s where the magic happens.L4LM: Yeah, that’s the beauty of Jazz Fest. I really think that’s the cool thing about you guys as professional musicians going down there when really all you know is that you’re going to jam with core players, and it all turns out pretty epic. Thanks so much for your time, Cris. I’ll see you at the Crawfish Fest!Cris: Yup. I am so excited for that one, man!On May 1-3, during the days between Jazz Fest weekends, the second annual NOLA Crawfish Festival will return to an exciting new home of Central City BBQ. Presented by NOLA Crawfish King and Live for Live Music, the three day event will bring together some of New Orleans’ best musicians, food, and music for a true New Orleans experience from top to bottom. With beer and crawfish included in every ticket purchase, an Ultimate Crawfish Cook-Off judged by a celebrity panel, and unique supergroups featuring talent from George Porter Jr., John Medeski, Eric Krasno, Luther Dickinson, Jon Cleary, Ivan Neville, and so many more, NOLA Crawfish Festival is an experience unlike any other.

first_imgWith the announcement that The Shirt Project will use Alta Gracia as its vendor again this year, proceeds from the sale of The Shirt will continue to improve the lives of apparel factory workers in Villa Altagracia, Dominican Republic. The 2013 Shirt marks the second collaboration between Notre Dame and Alta Gracia, a brand division of Knights Apparel that provides licensed apparel to universities around the country. Alta Gracia’s stated commitment to providing its workers with a living wage makes it a unique vendor. Knights Apparel founder and CEO Joe Bozich said it has been independently verified that Alta Gracia pays its workers a living wage. “This means they are getting paid the amount of money required for their family to meet all of life’s necessities, including food, water, clothing, housing, and energy, healthcare, child care, transportation and education,” Bozich said. “We have included in the wages paid to the employees enough money so they can afford to send their children to school, get an education and have hope for a better future. “Alta Gracia is a pathway out of poverty and hope for a better future for the people making this college apparel.” Junior Catherine Simonson, a Shirt Project Executive Committee member in charge of ­­media and public relations, said the decision to use Alta Gracia again was based on the quality of its product and its commitment to workers’ rights. “They were a top runner to begin with,” Simonson said. “Their presentation was just extremely impressive, and we did consider a couple of different vendors, but at the end of the day, it was pretty unanimous that we wanted Alta [Gracia] again.” Simonson said the company pays its workers in the Dominican Republic more than 340 percent of what the law requires them to pay. “We’re really happy to work with them again,” she said. Simonson noted Notre Dame’s contributions to Alta Gracia have been significant. “Last year, the opportunity afforded by The Shirt Committee paid 135 workers and their families a living wage, which was the largest single school commitment to Alta Gracia for 2012,” Simonson said. Bozich said the relationship between Notre Dame and Alta Gracia is founded on a strong, shared dedication to justice, dignity and hope for workers. “[Notre Dame and Alta Gracia] have something very important in common, and that is a commitment to social justice,” he said. “Through the charitable nature of The Shirt program, [Notre Dame] and The Shirt program are providing hope for those in need and those less fortunate.” Simonson couldn’t divulge any details about the design of the 2013 Shirt, which will officially be unveiled April 19, but she promised it would be worth the wait. “People [from The Shirt Committee] just went down to one of the warehouses in South Carolina to go see a couple markups of The Shirt design that we have right now,” Simonson said. “We have some really cool stuff in the works.”last_img read more

first_imgAmerican civil rights activist Diane Nash — who led the first successful campaign to desegregate lunch counters, was a part of the Selma voting rights movement and co-founded the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee — shared her personal experiences with racism and her integral efforts in the civil rights movement Tuesday.Nash was first exposed to the full extent of overt, state-sponsored racial segregation as a college student at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, she said. During the fall of 1959, Nash said she was shocked into the reality of Jim Crow laws in the south. Originally from the south side of Chicago, she said she was always aware segregation existed but did not know its severity until she moved to the south. “When I obeyed segregation rules, it felt like I was agreeing that I was too inferior to go through front doors or [to] restaurants, swimming pools and other public accommodations,” Nash said.In downtown Nashville, African Americans could only purchase food in restaurants on a take-out basis, she said. When she walked down the streets during lunchtime, African Americans lined the curbs and alleys, eating the lunches they brought from home or bought as take-out, she added.Nash said she was dissatisfied with the word “nonviolence” as it pertains to the civil rights movements of the 1960s.“Nonviolence means absence of violence,” she said. “[I] wanted a term that encompassed more than the absence of violence.”Nash’s dissatisfaction led her to coin the phrase “agapic energy,” meaning energy produced by a love for humankind. Inspired by Mohandas Gandhi’s way of observing love energy, as well as the Greek word “agape” — which means brotherly love or a love of humankind — Nash said agapic energy was an improvement on the term nonviolence.“Agapic energy is not passive — it’s active,” she said. “Users are not pacifists — we are activists.”Nash said she discovered the basic principles of agapic energy in the 1960s and has used them over her lifetime. An important principle of agapic energy is to realize people are not your enemies, she added.“Unjust political systems, unjust economic systems, attitudes, racism, sexism, ignorance … are enemies,” Nash said. “If you recognize that people are not the enemies, you can love and respect the person [and] at the same time, attack the attitudes of that person.”Nash said she slowly helped desegregate the restaurants in Nashville by targeting six establishments at a time. Eventually, Nashville became one of the first southern cities to desegregate lunch counters.“We changed ourselves into people who could not be segregated,” Nash said. “That presented a new set of options to Southern white racists. They could either shoot us or desegregate because they could no longer segregate.“Very often, we give away our power. If you understand that concept, you are going to save yourself a lot of time and effort trying to change other people.”Nash said there are six phases in an agapic energy campaign: investigation, education, negotiation, demonstration, resistance and insurance that the problem does not reoccur.“The purpose of the demonstration phase is to focus the attention on the community,” she said. “Resistance is when the oppressed withdraw their participation from the oppressive system. Whatever the issue that you’re working on, you would have the oppressed withdraw their participation. During the sixth phase, you might institutionalize an education in your community or establish a museum.”Nash said the movement of the ’60s provides a legacy that people can use in 2017. She said people today have an opportunity to move a step higher into their evolvement as an improved species, and demonstrations today and the people who participate in them must know the rest of the strategy.“We must understand that elected officials have not and will not do what’s necessary to protect the interest of this country and of American citizens,” she said. “The only way this country will make it through this frightening period and survive with citizens having a reasonable measure of rights is that we citizens must take the future of this country in our own hands.”Nash said if they had waited for officials to desegregate lunch counters and give African Americans the right to vote, “we probably would still be waiting.”Nash was arrested for her protesting efforts in the 1960s. When she and others marched, they very often knew they faced the risk of being killed or injured, she said. She said their fears were understandable, but their actions were necessary.“I’d like for you to know that although we had not yet known you, we loved you, and we were trying to bring about the best society for you to be born into and for you to come of age in,” Nash said. “Future generations will look to you to do the same.”Tags: Civil Rights Movement, Diane Nash, Diversity, Jim Crow, Jim Crow laws, race, Racismlast_img read more

first_imgNjemačko gospodarstvo zbog nedostatka radne snage trpi desetke milijardi eura gubitaka, stoga Njemačka vlada priprema novi –  zakon o imigraciji kojem je cilj privući i kvalificiranu radnu snagu iz trećih država, budući da radna snage Europske unije ne zadovoljava potrebe najvećeg europskog gospodarstva, piše point is that German companies can very easily bring in a college-educated expert from abroad, but a much harder-to-skilled worker with a high school education. And this is exactly the type of employee the German industry needs the most.The first problem that then arises is that the employer has to prove that there are no workers in the German market who can fill that job. Another problem is that without major problems they can hire a foreigner only if his occupation is on the list of deficient. Under the bill, both of these restrictions will be lifted. This reflects the fact that labor shortages are not only isolated to professionals as they once were, but are much broader and include a multitude of jobs that do not require a college degree.According to official data, 1,2 million jobs are currently being created in Germany, and the Institute of Economics (IW) estimates that 440.000 vacancies cannot be filled by workers living in Germany and that the economy loses 30 billion euros a year due to labor shortages.The situation is particularly difficult in the country’s industrial south, where the unemployment rate is only two percent in some parts, so the government has unveiled a bill it hopes will take effect later this year, which removes the biggest hurdle for employers.Jobs will soon be created or have already been created in Slovenia and Austria, ie the bans on the employment of foreign labor, which all offer better working conditions and better salaries than in Croatia, will be lifted, which will certainly be an additional blow to domestic businessmen who chronically labor shortage in tourism. The only solution to the problem of labor shortage is to improve working conditions and increase wages, there is no other quality and sustainable alternative.Will we figure it out until it’s too late, if not already?Related news:IS IT POSSIBLE TO INCREASE SALARIES IN TOURISM BY 30%?last_img read more

first_imgDespite the economy showing no signs of a rebound, foreign investors bought a total of Rp 238.11 billion in Indonesian shares during the day, especially in the negotiations and cash market. This indicated that the selling spree was led by domestic investors.Most buyers pursued stocks with good fundamentals such as gold miner PT Merdeka Copper Gold (MDKA), diversified conglomerate PT Astra International (ASII) and petrochemical giant PT Barito Pacific (BRPT) during the day.The plummeting index on Monday was primarily caused by a decline in blue-chip stocks as many fell by 7 percent, hitting the auto-rejection cap imposed by the bourse. Among them were consumer goods giant PT Unilever Indonesia (UNVR), which plunged by 7 percent, cigarette maker PT HM Sampoerna (HMSP), which declined by 6.95 percent, and state-owned lender PT Bank Negara Indonesia (BBNI), which was down by 6.92 percent.Jasa Utama Capital equity analyst Chris Apriliony told The Jakarta Post on Monday that the IDX’s new auto-rejection rule was quite effective at preventing the JCI from plunging deeper amid the COVID-19 panic sweeping the market.“The declines in share prices these days have not been based on well-determined actions but rather from a panic from investors, so the new auto-rejection rule can help reduce the effect on the JCI,” he said.Last week, the bourse issued a new regulation that limited share price decline to 7 percent for all price ranges from the previous 10 percent.Despite the crash, there were still 69 stocks that managed to make gains. Newly listed property developer PT Makmur Berkah Amanda (AMAN) rose 34.46 percent during the day, and energy services provider PT Apexindo Pratama Duta (APEX) grew 28.57 percent. Pharmaceutical firm PT Pyridam Farma (PYFA) was up 25.33 percent. Topics : Indonesia’s domestic stock benchmark, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), languished firmly in the red on Monday, falling by 4.4 percent as the global market rout continued, with COVID-19 fatalities now higher outside China, where the virus is believed to have originated, than inside it.The JCI concluded its trading on Monday at 4,690.06, a level unseen since January 2016. The Indonesia Stock Exchange’s (IDX) main gauge has fallen 25.54 percent so far this year, making for a stubborn bear market, defined by a 20 percent slump from a recent high. Trading on the IDX was halted twice last week after circuit-breaking dives of 5 percent on both Thursday and Friday.The JCI’s slump on Monday followed other Asian markets. The steepest decline was endured by Singapore, which slipped 5.25 percent in a day, while Hong Kong fell by 4.03 percent and Shanghai shrank by 3.4 percent. Tokyo slumped by 2.46 percent.last_img read more

first_imgAP6, the Swedish pensions buffer fund that specialises in private equity, has reported a high level of investment activity in the first months of 2019, including adding a number of US partners to its portfolio.With investors competing for deals – and some research suggesting the asset class has become overvalued – the Gothenburg-based investor said it made around 20 private equity transactions so far in 2019, in funds and as direct co-investments. It made direct investments in firms including Norwegian software company Visma and Danish internet firm Sitecore.Margareta Alestig, AP6 chief executive, said: “There is a continued good flow of interesting investment opportunities. A number of new collaborations have been initiated, which means that the diversification of the portfolio continues in terms of geography, segment and industry,”The SEK34.7bn (€3.2bn) fund said it had noticed a continued high level of activity in the capital raising processes it had taken part in, with access to capital so high that some funds had opted to increase their size. AP6 added that the most successful fund companies were having no problem closing their funds, with fierce investor competition to gain access to them.Karl Falk, head of fund investments at AP6, said the fund’s rate of investment had been high with regard to ongoing commitments to partner funds with which it already invested. However, AP6 had also formed a number of relationships with new partners.He said: “We are very positive about the fact that we have also been able to add additional US players in buyout and venture to the portfolio.”The buffer fund also reported having done a large number of co-investments this year.Mats Lindahl, director of direct investments at AP6, said: “The majority of the investments consist of new companies, including in the North American market. A minor share is about additional investments in already existing direct investments.”Research by data firm Preqin earlier this year showed nearly a third of investors (31%) planned to increase their allocations to private equity during 2019, with 12% planning to reduce it.Private equity investor views on key challenges for return generation in 2019Chart Makerlast_img read more
