Tag: 上海娱乐地图 Activists march in Binghamton in response to law enforcement proposals

first_imgActivists shared their experiences with the criminal justice system, growing up as a person of color and made speeches condemning the proposals made by the departments. The proposals include making resisting arrest as Class D felony, and limiting the ability for citizens to approach an officer who is performing his or her duty. “They’re trying to remove citizens’ ability to record police’s bad actions,” said Alexis Pleus, Executive Director of Truth Pharm. “Imagine that no citizen would be able to come within 25 feet of an officer while he’s engaged in his duty, that’s outrageous.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Dozens of people gathered at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. statue in downtown Binghamton on Sunday for a march in response to recent legislative proposals made by local sheriff’s departments. Activists argued that governments should be focusing on improving mental health resources and fighting police brutality rather than increasing protections for police officers. Truth Pharm, Justice and Unity for the Southern Tier, Binghamton Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow and Citizen Action teamed up for the march which ended at the Broome County Courthouse. 12 News reached out to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office for a comment.

Tag: 上海娱乐地图 Denmark gives pension stats higher profile as sector grows

first_imgIn the OECD’s Pension Markets in Focus 2019 report, these pension assets amounted to 198.6% of GDP in 2018, down from the 205.7% reported for 2017.Danmarks Nationalbank already releases quarterly statistics on the insurance and pension sector, but until now this has formed part of its financial accounts and securities statistics.Apart from now being reported separately, the new insurance and pensions statistics also contain data that is to a degree more granular and comprehensive than those previously published, and are accompanied by a “Statistical Insight” overview of the main highlights, the bank told IPE.The quarterly statistics will include the sector’s total balance sheet broken down by assets and liabilities specified by provision type; investments dissected into country and currency, with the option to look through stocks in Danish investment funds, as well as data on currency hedging and returns.The first report, which covers life insurers, pension funds and general insurance companies, reveals the sector had financial assets with a market value of almost DKK4.8tn at the end of September, with the pension sector accounting for over DKK4.6trn of this.Half of the sector’s shares and equity investments are shown in the statistical analysis to be unlisted, a category which the bank said included most of the sector’s alternative investments – mostly property, private equity, infrastructure and hedge funds.Most investments held by insurance and pension firms were foreign ones, the data showed, with only 46% being Danish.While the firms had invested primarily in assets denominated in Danish kroner and euros, the bank said the sector had dollar-denominated investments totalling almost DKK1trn, nearly a quarter of total assets.Returns for the first nine months of this year were DKK479bn, with the large returns reflecting gains on interest rate derivatives and bonds due to falling interest rates in the period, the central bank said.It noted that unlisted shares were often valued on the basis of models and assumptions regarding risk and illiquidity.“This means that returns do not always mirror market fluctuations,” the bank said. The Danish central bank is expanding its publication of data on the insurance and pension sector, as the industry becomes a more and more important part of the Nordic country’s economy.In the first of a new type of regular report it is issuing, the bank said: “Since the insurance and pension sector plays an increasing role in the Danish economy, Danmarks Nationalbank is introducing new quarterly statistics for this sector.”Pension and insurance assets in Denmark amounted to 213% of the country’s GDP at the end of September, according to the report.Denmark has the highest level of pension assets in funded and private pension plans compared to GDP of any OECD country, the organisation’s data show.last_img read more

first_imgNZ Herald 13 January 2014An assault on a 12-year-old boy this week has caused a bit of a debate.Last Tuesday three boys were walking along the riverside cycleway, which runs between Murphy Road and the Pettigrew-Green Arena in Taradale, after a swim in a nearby river.One of them, who was in Hawke’s Bay on holiday, called out to a passing cyclist. The boy says he said “hi”.The male cyclist took exception to whatever the boy said and assaulted him.Now I really don’t care what the boy said. Probably showing off in front of his mates.Who cares? That’s what kids do. And he is a kid, remember, he is 12 years old.The person who assaulted him is thought to be in his 40s or 50s.Now he is the one who should know better.He should be the one to have control over his emotions.http://m.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503459&objectid=11185553last_img read more

Tag: 上海娱乐地图 Brash boxer ‘Macho’ Camacho dies in Puerto Rico

first_imgThe man who once starred at the pinnacle of boxing, winning several world titles, died Saturday after being ambushed in a parking lot back in the Puerto Rican town of Bayamon where he was born. Packets of cocaine were found were found in the car in which he was shot.Camacho, 50, left behind a reputation for flamboyance—leading fans in cheers of “It’s Macho time!” before fights—and for fearsome skills as one of the top fighters of his generation.“He excited boxing fans around the world with his inimitable style,” promoter Don King told The Associated Press.Camacho fought professionally for three decades, from his humble debut against David Brown at New York’s Felt Forum in 1980 to an equally forgettable swansong against Saul Duran in Kissimmee, Florida, in 2010.In between, he fought some of the biggest stars spanning two eras, including Sugar Ray Leonard, Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya and Roberto Duran.“Hector was a fighter who brought a lot of excitement to boxing,” said Ed Brophy, executive director of International the Boxing Hall of Fame. “He was a good champion. Roberto Duran is kind of in a class of his own, but Hector surely was an exciting fighter that gave his all to the sport.”Camacho’s family moved to New York when he was young and he grew up in Spanish Harlem, which at the time was rife with crime. Camacho landed in jail as a teenager before turning to boxing, which for many kids in his neighborhood provided an outlet for their aggression.“This is something I’ve done all my life, you know?” Camacho told The Associated Press after a workout in 2010. “A couple years back, when I was doing it, I was still enjoying it. The competition, to see myself perform. I know I’m at the age that some people can’t do this no more.”Former featherweight champion Juan Laporte, a friend since childhood, described Camacho as “like a little brother who was always getting into trouble,” but otherwise combined a friendly nature with a powerful jab.“He’s a good human being, a good hearted person,” Laporte said as he waited with other friends and members of the boxer’s family outside the hospital in San Juan after the shooting. “A lot of people think of him as a cocky person but that was his motto … Inside he was just a kid looking for something.”Laporte lamented that Camacho never found a mentor to guide him outside the boxing ring.“The people around him didn’t have the guts or strength to lead him in the right direction,” Laporte said. “There was no one strong enough to put a hand on his shoulder and tell him how to do it.”George Lozada, a longtime friend from New York who flew to Puerto Rico on Saturday, recalled that just hours after he was released from prison after serving a murder sentence, he received a call from Camacho, who was waiting outside his apartment in a black Porsche.“He said, ‘Come down, I’m taking you shopping,’” Lozada said, wiping away tears.“Because of him, man, I got what I got today,” he said, pointing to pictures on his smartphone of his 6-year-old daughter. “Because of Hector, I stopped the drug scene … He’s helped so many people.”Drug, alcohol and other problems trailed Camacho himself after the prime of his boxing career. He was sentenced in 2007 to seven years in prison for the burglary of a computer store in Mississippi. While arresting him on the burglary charge in January 2005, police also found the drug ecstasy.A judge eventually suspended all but one year of the sentence and gave Camacho probation. He wound up serving two weeks in jail, though, after violating that probation.Camacho’s former wife, Amy, obtained a restraining order against him in 1998, alleging he threatened her and one of their children. The couple, who had two children at the time, later divorced.He divided his time between Puerto Rico and Florida in recent years, appearing on Spanish-language television as well as on a reality show called “Es Macho Time!” on YouTube.Inside the boxing ring, Camacho flourished. He won three Golden Gloves titles as an amateur, and after turning pro, he quickly became a contender with an all-action style reminiscent of other Puerto Rican fighters.Long promoted by Don King, Camacho won his first world title by beating Rafael Limon in a super-featherweight bout in Puerto Rico on Aug. 7, 1983. He moved up in weight two years later to capture a lightweight title by defeating Jose Luis Ramirez, and successfully defended the belt against fellow countryman Edwin Rosario.The Rosario fight, in which the victorious Camacho still took a savage beating, persuaded him to scale back his ultra-aggressive style in favor of a more cerebral, defensive approach.The change in style was a big reason that Camacho, at the time 38-0, lost a close split decision to Greg Haugen at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in 1991.Camacho won the rematch to set up his signature fight against Mexico’s Julio Cesar Chavez, this time at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Camacho was roundly criticized for his lack of action, and the Mexican champion won a lopsided unanimous decision to retain the lightweight title.“Even though people say I beat him easily, it wasn’t that way,” Chavez told Mexico’s ESPN-Radio Formula this week. “He was a very fast fighter, he faced everything and it was very hard for me.”“He revolutionized boxing, Chavez said. “It’s a shame he got mixed up in so many problems.”After that loss, Camacho became the name opponent for other rising contenders, rather than the headliner fighting for his own glory.He lost a unanimous decision to another young Puerto Rican fighter, Trinidad, and was soundly defeated by De La Hoya. In 1997, Camacho ended Leonard’s final comeback with a fifth-round knockout. It was Camacho’s last big victory even though he boxed for another decade.The fighter’s last title bout came in 1997 against welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya, who won by unanimous decision. Camacho’s last fight was his defeat by Saul Duran in May 2010. He had a career record of 79-6-3.Doctors pronounced Camacho dead on Saturday after he was removed from life support at his family’s direction. He never regained consciousness after at least one gunman crept up to the car in a darkened parking lot and opened fire.No arrests and have been made, and authorities have not revealed many details beyond the facts that police found cocaine in the car and that the boxer and his friend, who was killed at the scene, had no idea the attack was coming. “Apparently, this was a surprise,” said Alex Diaz, a police spokesman.Survivors include his mother; three sisters, Raquel, Estrella and Ester; a brother, Felix; and four sons, Hector Jr., Taylor, Christian and Justin.

(AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File) by Danica CotoSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)—Hector “Macho” Camacho was a brash fighter with a mean jab and an aggressive style, launching himself furiously against some of the biggest names in boxing. And his bad-boy persona was not entirely an act, with a history of legal scrapes that began in his teens and continued throughout his life.last_img read more

Tag: 上海娱乐地图 Thunder star Kevin Durant wins first MVP award

first_imgOklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant (35) drives between Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes (22) and center DeAndre Jordan (6) in the third quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal NBA basketball playoff series in Oklahoma City, Monday, May 5, 2014. Los Angeles won 122-105. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them.The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, grabbing 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the previous five, finished second with six first-place votes and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third.Durant, a 6-foot-9 forward, won his fourth scoring crown in five years this season by averaging 32 points per game. He helped the Thunder finish the regular season with a 59-23 record, second-best in the league, despite playing much of the season without three-time All-Star Russell Westbrook by his side because of a nagging knee injury.“He’s been the most consistent guy all season long,” Westbrook said at the end of the regular season. “He’s done a great job of leading us to where we are now. He’s basically put himself in front of everybody else in the league and shown that he’s the best player in the world.”James agreed, saying Monday: “Much respect to him and he deserves it. He had a big-time MVP season.”Durant’s run of 41 consecutive games this season with at least 25 points was the third-longest streak in NBA history. In all, he scored at least 40 points 14 times. He also averaged 7.4 rebounds and a career-high 5.5 assists while shooting 50 percent from the field.“He does everything,” New Orleans coach Monty Williams said. “You just can’t recall a guy that long who can do what he does every single night. Shooting from 30 feet on the floor with confidence and driving to the basket and dunking on guys, and then go post up, and on top of it, a great teammate and good kid.”Durant moved to the front of the pack while Westbrook was out following his most recent knee surgery. Durant averaged 35 points and 6.3 assists during that stretch as the Thunder went 20-7 and remained among the league’s elite.Westbrook’s injury gave Durant an opportunity to use his improving skills as a playmaker.“I’ve always been a player that was excited for my teammates’ success,” Durant said. “Not just mine, but my teammates’ as well. Wanting to see them do well translates to my game, which is wanting to pass the ball and seeing my teammates reap the benefits.”Teammates and opponents say Durant became a more complete player this season. They praised him for improving his court vision, consistently making the extra pass and moving more efficiently without the ball.“What he does is tough to do,” teammate Nick Collison said. “I think we take it for granted. To be able to stay on for long periods of time — have to cut hard, catch the ball in the right spot and defend on the other end — is tough to do. To be able to show that shows that he has an edge to him. He doesn’t take a night off.”Durant’s slight build could be considered one of his few weaknesses, but he has especially improved in dealing with opponents who try to push him around.“People have been trying to do that since he’s been in the league, and obviously, he’s just gotten better every season, so I don’t really think that matters with him,” Westbrook said. “He just takes on the challenge. When people try to be physical, he takes on the challenge and becomes more aggressive.”Though Durant’s consistency stood out this season, he had several exceptional games. He scored 48 points on Jan. 4 at Minnesota, then scored 48 again two games later at Utah. He scored a career-high 54 points in a home win against Golden State on Jan. 17 and two games later scored 46 at home in a win against Portland. Two games after that, he had a triple-double — 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists — in a win at Philadelphia, and he followed that with 41 points in a win over Atlanta. He scored 51 points at Toronto on March 21 in a staggering 53 minutes and hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left in double overtime.He capped it off in the season finale by scoring 21 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter against Detroit and winning the game with a dunk with 16.5 seconds left. The Thunder overcame a 10-point deficit in the quarter to clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.__Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/CliffBruntAPlast_img read more

Tag: 上海娱乐地图 Crunch time for Nelson Leafs, host Princeton, Bruins in doubleheader weekend

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson Daily SportsNo doubt after the New Year’s Eve debacle, the Nelson Leafs will be eager to get a positive start to 2012 when the club plays host to the Princeton Posse Friday in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action at the NDCC Arena.The Leafs completed 2011 with a stinker even the players had a difficult time stomaching, losing 3-2 to the Spokane Braves — the same team Nelson trashed 7-1 the night before, on the road no less.”It’s a new season and we’ve got to get ready for the stretch run,” Leaf coach Frank Maida told The Nelson Daily. “The players know for us to make a run we can’t take any games off and must come prepared to every game.”In the Posse, the Leaf face a big team ready to push the Leafs around. However, Maida said the Green and White must use their speed in the larger NDCC Arena to its advantage.”(Princeton) is a bigger team that play in a smaller arena, so we’ve got to use our speed to our advantage and wear them down,” he said.During the only meeting of the season between the two clubs, a 4-2 win by the Posse, the hosts jumped to a 2-0 lead four minutes into the first period — a lead the Leafs could not overcome despite out shooting Princeton 39-22.Princeton, 20-13-1, enter the game tops in the Okanagan Division with a one-point lead over Osoyoos Coyotes.In contrast the Leafs, are tied with the Posse in points but sit third in the Murdoch 15 points behind division leading Beaver Valley.

It just seems like it.While no records are immediately available, the Hall of Fame trainer seems to live onthe rail in post position draws. Such is the case in Saturday’s Preakness Stakes, where the two horses he trains, Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah and third-place finisher Dortmund will break from one and two respectively in a field of eight going a mile and three-sixteenths.            “I didn’t like the draw,” Baffert told Daily Racing Form. “I hate seeing them next to each other like that.”Horsemen in general, be they trainers or jockeys, have no great love of inside post positions. A strong intimidation factor seems to exist for both horse and rider.“The facts are the facts when you’re on the rail, going short especially,” said Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, who is steadfastly approaching career victory No. 7,000. “Guys don’t seem to like being there.“I guess it’s considered a disadvantage. Part of the problem is riders on the rail feel like they have to send their horses out of there and try to get a good position and some horses don’t like to be sent off their feet out of there.“When horses break a little slow, the tendency is to try and rush them up from the one hole so they don’t get shuffled back too far. It’s a problem, but if you have a good enough horse, they can overcome it.”“A good enough horse” would certainly be an appropriate description of American Pharoah and Dortmund in the Preakness, which, at a sixteenth of a mile shorter than the mile and a quarter Kentucky Derby, is far from a sprint.“I don’t consider the Preakness post positions for them a disadvantage at all,” Hollendorfer said.STEVENS HAPPY OVER PREAKNESS DRAWAs far as jockey Gary Stevens is concerned, the post position draw for Saturday’s Preakness Stakes couldn’t have gone any better if he drew the race himself.Stevens was not only happy to have his mount, Kentucky Derby runner-up Firing Line, draw the outside post in the eight-horse field, but he seemed downright giddy that his major competition, American Pharoah and Dortmund, drew posts one and two, respectively.Moreover, Mr. Z, a late addition to the field after he was purchased privately by Calumet Farm, drew post three. Mr. Z, who finished 13th in the Kentucky Derby, remains in the care of trainer D. Wayne Lukas.“I’m pleased not so much where I drew but where Dortmund and American Pharoah drew, one and two, and Mr. Z outside of them,” said Stevens, a three-time winner of the Preakness. “I expect Mr. Z to show more speed than he did in the Kentucky Derby with new ownership.“Wayne’s going out for the kill; that’s going to make those guys make some decisions earlier in the race that they didn’t have the benefit of making in the Kentucky Derby. Now I’ve got that benefit.”In the Kentucky Derby, Firing Line dueled outside of Dortmund before putting that horse away in deep stretch. But, American Pharoah, who broke from post 15 in the Kentucky Derby, rallied several paths outside of Firing Line, pulling away from that rival late to win by one length.Stevens said Firing Line, owned by Arnold Zetcher and trained by Simon Callaghan, would have no problem sitting off the pace, something he did in the Grade III Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita Feb. 7 when he made the lead in mid-stretch but was outgamed to the wire by Dortmund, who won that race by a head.“He’ll sit about any trip,” Stevens said. “I wasn’t overly concerned about the draw. I toldMr. Zetcher just prior to it I’d love to have the outside, but if we don’t I’ll be fine with where we’re at. But those three being down inside it gives me a lot of options.”Stevens also believes the fact that Firing Line had six weeks from the Sunland Derby to the Kentucky Derby gives him a fresher horse for the two-week turnaround from the Kentucky Derby to the Preakness.“I think it helps him,” he said. “That’s one thing Simon, Mr. Zetcher and myself talked about before. For a guy that’s never been through the Triple Crown before, Simon was sorting this stuff out prior to; he knew what he was getting into and how tough it was going to be on him and he felt the six weeks would be to our benefit.“We had the freshest horse going into the Derby and I got to think of the top three Derby finishers we may have come out of the race with the freshest horse going into the Preakness.”In conjunction with the Preakness, Santa Anita will present an attractive day of live racing along with a festive Preakness party featuring the Preakness Handicapping Challenge offering $100,000 in prizes this weekend, May 16 and 17.Santa Anita offers a $500,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pool on Saturday as well as a guaranteed Pick 6 pool of $150,000.

first_img25 July 2013South Africa’s new smart ID card demonstrates again what the country is capable of achieving, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said after receiving his new ID from Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor in Cape Town on Thursday.“Those who used to have to carry heavy dompasses are more aware of just how far we have travelled,” Tutu said, referring to the passbook which black people were obliged to carry during apartheid.He added that the new smart card would make it more difficult to create false identity documents or driver’s licences.“One of the reasons we pay such high fees for British visas is because people used to be able to undermine [the old South African passports] and they couldn’t trust the fact that this was you,” Tutu said.Pandor said it had been an honour to have Tutu and other South Africans that had played a key role in the anti-apartheid struggle – including former President Nelson Mandela – receive the country’s first smart ID cards.The Department of Home Affairs expects to start rolling the new IDs out to the public within the next three months.The public will shortly be invited to apply for the smart ID cards, with applications to be made in accordance with applicant’s month of birth and with an initial focus on the elderly and on those applying for an ID for the first time.The department wants to get at least 27 offices fitted with the necessary technology to process the cards, and Pandor said she expected the public application process to start in October.“We don’t want to rush because it will overwhelm us in terms of all the services that we provide,” she said.She added that the department aimed to have rolled out the first 100 000 smart ID cards by early next week and aimed to roll out all the new ID cards within six to eight years.Smart ID cards will be issued free of charge to 16-year-olds who are first-time applicants, while all other applicants will be expected to pay R140.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
