Madrid only recovers Bale

first_imgReal Madrid only recovers Gareth Bale. The workforce was exercised under the command of Zinedine Zidane with significant absences. In addition to the long-term injury of Marco Asensio; Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard were not with the group either. The French striker, of course, exercised alone on the grass, both with the ball and without him, and could return with his teammates in the coming days. The main novelty is the return of Bale. The Welshman had no physical problem, but an infection that made him miss the Super Cup. The club did not want to risk with him or with a possible contagion to his teammates and stayed on the ground. Now, fully recovered, trained without major problem and points to the match against Sevilla next Saturday from 4pm at the Santiago Bernabéu. Sergio RamosWith a sprain that will take him about a week off the pitch, he worked inside the premises. Like Luka Jovic, who suffers a deep chafing on the foot although it is expected that in a couple of days it will be fully recovered. The rest of the group did a recovery session, after proclaiming themselves as champions of the Spain Supercup by beating Valencia and Atlético de Madrid.last_img read more

Lockheed ranked high by students

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsIn the survey, students not only rank their top companies and industries but also answer questions regarding salary and benefit expectations; career goals; and decision drivers. According to Universum, Lockheed Martin’s success in the survey is directly attributable to the emphasis placed on developing one-on-one relationships with students, faculty and career services. Claudia Tattanelli, CEO of Universum Communications, notes that while relationship-building is a key ingredient, students look to other important qualities as well. “Students have always been impressed with Lockheed Martin’s commitment to diversity and social responsibility. The company is well known for its charitable contributions and strong values,” said Tattanelli. “In addition, engineers are intrigued by the fact that working for Lockheed Martin means, now more than ever, working with leading technology. Both high ethical standards and for the first time innovation are two of the most important characteristics of an `ideal’ employer according to this year’s Millenials,” Tattanelli concluded. Lockheed Martin is one of the nation’s top employers of engineering graduates in the U.S. and is anticipating more than 4,000 entry-level hires in 2006. Universum Communications, founded in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden, has offices in Europe, the U.S., Asia and South Africa. Universum helps companies attract, recruit and retain top talent. PALMDALE – Lockheed Martin was ranked by undergraduate engineering students as their most “ideal” employer, according to the 2006 Universum Ideal Employer Survey. Boeing came in second, and General Electric third, Universum said. Then came BMW and Walt Disney. The Universum study, conducted annually since 1999, polled more than 37,000 students at 207 leading universities, including 7,642 engineering majors. Walt Disney came in first overall. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img

South Africa tots up population wins

first_img24 July 2015Just over a week ago, on 14 July, UNAids released its report, How Aids Has Changed Everything – Meeting the MDG Targets.It said the world had met and exceeded the Aids targets of Millennium Development Goal Six, and was on track to end the Aids epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. Among other nations, it spoke of South Africa as one of the countries that had made significant strides in halting and reversing the epidemic.Yesterday, Statistics South Africa added its research to the story. About one in 10 South Africans was living with HIV, it said in its mid-year population estimates report, published on 23 July.Speaking at its release in Pretoria, statistician-general Pali Lehohla said 6.19 million South Africans were living with the disease, out of an estimated total population of 54.95 million people, or 11.2%.The number of South Africans infected with HIV had increased by 2.17 million since 2002, when 4.02 million South Africans were HIV-positive. However, he said, infections were declining, with the incidence rate among people between the ages of 15 and 49 waning.A reduction of infections in people aged between 15 and 24 bore this out: in 2002, 6.75% of this group was infected with HIV, dropping to 5.59% in 2015.In addition, there had been a gradual drop in Aids-related deaths since 2002. In its mid-year report, Stats SA estimated that 531 965 people had died, with 162 445 of those being Aids-related, or 30.5%. In 2002, 44.6% of all deaths were Aids-related; this figure peaked in 2005 at 50.7%.Saved by treatmentUNAids said that the goal of 15 million people on life-saving HIV treatment by 2015 had been met nine months ahead of schedule. In 2014, the report showed that 83 countries, which accounted for 83% of all people living with HIV, had halted or reversed their epidemics, including countries with major epidemics, such as South Africa, India, Kenya, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.“Countries that rapidly mounted robust responses to their epidemics saw impressive results. South Africa turned around its decline in life expectancy within 10 years, rising from 51 years in 2005 to 61 by the end of 2014, on the back of a massive increase in access to antiretroviral therapy,” UNAids said.“South Africa has the largest HIV treatment programme in the world, with more than 3.1 million people on antiretroviral therapy, funded almost entirely from domestic sources. In the last five years alone, AIDS-related deaths have declined by 58% in South Africa.”Life expectancy lengthensStats SA also looked at life expectancy. “We need to look at what progress is being achieved in demographics,” Lehohla said. “Life expectancy is increasing. That is the biggest demographic gain the world observes.”In Africa, life expectancy had increased by 20 years since the 1950s. In South Africa, average life expectancy in 2015 was 62.5 years, up 9.1 years since 2004. The average life expectancy for a South African male was 60.6 years, for a female it was 64.2 years.The increase in average life expectancy was matched by a drop in both the infant mortality rate and the children-under-five mortality rate. In 2002, the infant mortality rate was 51.2 babies per 1 000 live births; it peaked at 52 babies per 1 000 live births. In 2015, this number had dropped to 34.4 deaths per 1 000 live births.Similarly, in 2002, there were 77.2 deaths per 1 000 children among those under five, peaking at 79.1 in 2005. In 2015, this figure has dropped significantly to 45.1 deaths per 1 000 children.Meanwhile, Lehohla said, on average, South African women were having 2.55 children each since 2011, a drop from 2.79 in 2002. While Gauteng had the lowest birth rate in South Africa, it was the country’s most populated province, with 13.2 million people – 24% of the country’s total population.Turning to population, Stats SA said the country’s population had grown 1.65% from 2014 to 2015, compared with 1.28% from 2002 to 2003. The natural rate of the increase was 1.3% in 2015, with the remainder being made up by migration.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Geocaching Challenges – Thanks for the Feedback

first_imgBryan Roth: Co-Founder of GroundspeakBy Bryan Roth,We hear your concerns, and thank you for your feedback.  Now we are asking you to give Challenges a chance. You don’t necessarily have to participate, but give us some time to improve the feature set.  Here’s why.For many years, the geocaching community has been clamoring for the return of Virtual geocaches. There were a lot of issues with the implementation of Virtuals that prevented us from bringing them back in their original form. When we set out to find a way to bring Virtuals back that would appeal to the community, we determined that the basic idea behind Virtual Caches was “go somewhere, do something.”This is what Geocaching Challenges are all about. Over 99% of Challenges will be location-based Challenges created by the community. You might be Challenged to take a picture of yourself walking across the Abbey Road crosswalk or tasked to take a picture from the top of the Empire State Building. These are fun, outdoor adventures that can happen even in locations that do not support physical caches.If a Challenge is not specifically location-based, or does not require a photo (for a photo Challenge) or an action (for an Action Challenge), please flag it or vote it down. When flagging, think of yourself as a reviewer. You wouldn’t deny a cache just because it sounds boring (though, in this case, you could vote it down), but you would deny it if it were inappropriate or did not meet the guidelines. We think the instances of locationless Challenges being submitted by the community will decrease as people come to better understand what Challenges are. We are working now to improve the educational materials within the Challenges section of Geocaching.com so that it is clear what is acceptable for a Challenge and what is not.Worldwide Challenges are the one exception to the location-based rule. These are Challenges created by Groundspeak that are meant to bring the community together by letting us all experience the same adventure. If everyone participated, we could have well over five million geocachers hiking their local trails one day or biking to work the next day. We will generally be creating one Worldwide Challenge per day, although we may add a few in the early days to get everyone started. These will almost always be outdoor adventures.  We started with one that was not necessarily an outdoors Challenge (Kiss a Frog) because we thought it would be fun.  But, we realize that such a Challenge is not in keeping with our mission of getting you outside.  So, we have archived the Challenge effective today. We will soon be adding functionality to allow you to remove ‘Acceptance’ and ‘Completion’ logs you’ve entered, if you choose to do so.If you think an individual Challenge is bad, you are welcome to vote it down. All users have the ability to sort by the highest rated Challenges (simply click on the column header ‘Rating’ in the search results), so voting a Challenge down will send it further down the list.We will be updating the mobile applications, adding functionality to the API so that other developers can incorporate Challenges into their applications and services, and working to improve the website functionality on an ongoing basis.  In the interim, we ask that you to allow us some time to innovate.We believe that, if people use the Challenges system as it was meant to be used and populate it with Challenges they think others would enjoy, Challenges will add more to geocaching than Virtuals ever did.

The lack of familiarity playing in the massive venue also played its part.But the Gin Kings just had enough to win it with its defense forcing Meralco to 20 turnovers that led to 23 turnover points.“We kind of took advantage of that fact that we didn’t shoot the ball all that well either. Again, it was just a grind it out battle. I thought tonight we took away some of their strengths and we were able to get to some of ours as opposed to the last couple of games where they really made us play to our weaknesses,” said Cone.“We just didn’t battle, we went to war today.

On the move

first_imgLATEST STORIES A few minutes into the presentation, the company’s vision are flashed on the screen: F2 Logistics wants to be faster. Better. Stronger. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it wings at the Olympic credo. And it figures. Uy, the company’s president and CEO is a sportsman.“I’ve always been involved in sports; I was an athlete when I was younger,” said Uy.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAnd outside the business circles, inside the sporting arena, F2 Logistics is proving to be faster, better and stronger than the rest of the field in the Philippine Superliga.With already two titles in their trophy case, the Cargo Movers are more than equipped to defend their Grand Prix crown despite a bulk of their stars struck out of the roster while they’re on duty for La Salle in the UAAP. Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving And the inspiration goes a long way in an industry that bleeds the clock dry with its nonstop activity. Whether it’s delivering life-saving medicines on time to where it is needed to keeping supermarkets stocked with fresh produce, logistics and cargo giant, F2 Logistics delivers to the Filipino public providing them with their needs on a daily basis.But the Cargo Movers have done their share of pumping up the energy of the workforce with their smashing victories on court. And they provide inspiration elsewhere too.“Believe it or not, these girls volunteer for a lot of our outreach programs,” Uy revealed. “A lot of our players know what it is like to grow up amid hardships so some of the girls, like Abby and Cha, they really want to open doors for others and volunteer to do clinics for us for free.”In a way, the Cargo Movers are a perfect reflection of the company they represent. From its humble southern roots “where we started with three branches and just a handful of trucks,” F2 Logistics has grown to more than a thousand trucks nationwide, providing world class warehousing and logistics services.The Cargo Movers traced more or less the same route in the PSL. They began “just wanting to be competitive,” said Uy, hiring such standouts as Cha Cruz, Aby Marano and Paneng Mercado to lead the young team.But after a third-place finish in their first year, Uy felt he needed “to beef up the roster.” While shopping for added talents, Uy made a partnership the De La Salle volleyball squad, which did not have a company to back them up yet; “with an already established team and led by one of the best coaches in the Philippine scene, we always aim to be the best ” said Uy.And the rest is history. The partnership has resulted in not just two PSL titles, but a championship for La Salle as well in the UAAP—the Lady Spikers are also backed by F2 Logistics in the collegiate league.With the PSL now in full swing, the Cargo Movers are now chasing for more success in a season that holds a lot of promise for the squad. Lee waxes hot for Hotshots Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH MOST READ “We will lack some key players, but we will be fine,” said head coach Ramil de Jesus.Uy brims with the same amount of confidence, pinning his hopes on former La Salle stars Aby Marano, skipper Cha Cruz, peerless setter Kim Fajardo and the ultra talented Ara Galang as the Cargo Movers hope for a repeat of their dramatic conquest of Petron in last year’s Finals.“That was such a memorable win,” said Uy. “We were already behind in Game 2, 0-9, and I remember some fans were already readying banners but we fought back and forced a fifth set. And then we won that fifth set and the momentum had already shifted to our side in Game 3.”More than the victory itself, Uy is appreciative of what the Cargo Movers have done for F2 Logistics as a company.“You know, after that win, people in the office started using that victory as an inspiration,” he said. “They keep telling themselves that if [the Cargo Movers] can do it, then nothing is impossible in work.”ADVERTISEMENT AFP official booed out of forum Efren Uy leans back on his chair and stares at a projector screen inside the F2 Logistics office boardroom. This is how he first introduces the company to people who are not fully acquainted with the logistics industry—through a presentation of their company profile.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
