Southgate, Kane, Cook on Queen’s list for honours

first_imgLONDON (AP): England coach Gareth Southgate and his captain Harry Kane have been rewarded in Queen Elizabeth II’s New Year honours list on the back of the team’s surprise run to the World Cup semi-finals. Away from football, Geraint Thomas, who won cycling’s Tour de France in July and was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year earlier this month, gets an OBE, while former England cricket captain Alastair Cook and ex-England rugby skipper Bill Beaumont received knighthoods. After decades of disappointment at major tournaments, England’s football team matched its best overseas World Cup performance earlier this year. The 48-year-old Southgate was key to the surprise display in Russia, changing the culture of the team, with their run followed by progress to the inaugural UEFA Nations League finals. He received an OBE Officer of the Order of the British Empire. Kane, honoured with an MBE Member of the Order of the British Empire, won the Golden Boot after finishing top scorer at the World Cup. The 25-year-old striker netted six goals as Southgate’s side reached the final four, and he has also shone throughout the year for high-flying Tottenham. “It’s quite surreal,” Kane said. “It’s been a great year for club and country. It’s hard to put into words. I’m very passionate about our country, very patriotic.” Outgoing Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore becomes a CBE Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to football, and former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Harry Gregg gets an OBE. The 86-year-old Gregg survived the Munich air disaster in 1958. Four-time Ashes winner Cook, 34, becomes the first England cricketer to be given a ‘Sir’ prefix since Ian Botham in 2007. He retired from internationals this year, scoring a 33rd Test century on his final appearance against India at The Oval. Cook has compiled more Test centuries and runs 12,472 than any other England player during a record 161 Tests.last_img read more

Mirror of the city

Cronin Canyon Country It should be a crime Re “Governor gets 18 percent raise” (June 24): Let’s get this straight, because I was mugged falling down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass: State politicos have been given – clearly have not earned – an obscene pay hike by an “independent compensation commission,” obviously larded with corporate boardroom stooges who, with shameless Byzantine dementia, defend the reward for (charitably) egregious performance. Re “Ghost traffic haunts the 101” (June 27): Tell me something we don’t all know and live through every day. No matter where you are in our beautiful city of Los Angeles, the realities are that our freeway systems and other roadways were never designed to hold the volume of vehicles that we as motorists require of them, especially during peak commute times. After the commute hours and all of the volume flushes out – when everyone is at work or gone home for the evening – the roadways are the “ghost town” rife with speeders failing to do the right thing when our Los Angeles Police Department is not looking. Is there a solution? The problem has been and will always be a part of the city of Los Angeles. So the world’s sixth-biggest economy is so flush and well-managed that “Kalifornia” can afford performances that would be deserving of demotion, sacking or, in some societies, execution. The only “commission” here is of a crime. – Gary W. Dolgin Santa Monica Buffett’s death tax Re “Better life for poor Buffett’s top focus” (June 27): Looking at the details of the Warren Buffett “donation” to The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, I note that he also provided one-half million shares to each of three other foundations. The current share value is more than $90,000 each. Do the math. Each of his children is the head of one foundation. These foundations are required to pay out a percentage each year. If managed properly, the principal still continues to grow. Taxes are never paid on the original estate. The government has no say in where the money is spent. Really rich people still pay no inheritance taxes. And probably never will. – Henry David Calabasas The truth published Re “`Disorders’ erode responsibility” (Viewpoint, June 25): It is so refreshing to see the truth published about the psychiatric and drug industries. There is a formula for how to destroy a civilization in one easy step: Convince everybody that he or she is a victim. Psychiatry has been pushing this lie for decades. Fortunately most people don’t buy it. As long as we know we are responsible for our actions and act responsibly, we can continue as a strong and vibrant civilization. When that goes, we are gone. – Randall Wise Glendale Deadly parking Re “Neighbors’ dispute turns deadly” (June 27): For some Valley residents, parking in front of their own home has become rare at best. My dad’s street in Van Nuys – with the house I grew up in – has become a virtual parking lot for the apartment dwellers a block away on Vanowen. They block driveways, park in red zones, park next to fire plugs and double-park. There is truly a flagrant abuse of parking laws. On trash day they shuffle the barrels so they have room to park. It’s no wonder tempers flare. Our city fathers, with their come-one, come-all policy, have created a real problem. Ten people living in a one-bedroom apartment is the sole cause, and something needs to be done about it. – Bob Mauch North Hills Biodiesel explained Re “Fueling their cars without a gas pump” (June 26): I wish to clarify a popular misunderstanding regarding biodiesel and vegetable oil fuels. Biodiesel is a manufactured, refined product with vegetable oil components and has the viscosity of regular diesel. It will work in most any unmodified diesel engine. Biodiesel is now available at some gas stations, and it can be homemade with proper equipment. But what Joe Broderick did in his Volkswagen and what I have done in my Toyota is called a waste vegetable oil conversion or WVO. It requires modifications, including a second fuel tank with a heater. Waste vegetable oil can be burned safely only in some diesel engines. Either is an honorable way to fight petroleum dependence. – Charles L. Murray Santa Clarita Pacoima editorial Re “Remembering Pacoima” (Our Opinions, June 21): I want to express my disappointment with the Daily News’ characterization of Pacoima in your editorial. It could not be further from truth. Evidence of improvement is everywhere, and the transportation-planning grant is only the most recent example. The third phase of neighborhood streetlights in Pacoima was also recently approved, and it will bring a total of $1.8 million to offset the cost otherwise placed on homeowners. With the opening of the Mission Area Police Station, the Foothill Division in Pacoima now has a reduced coverage area; as a result, the police service throughout the Northeast Valley has improved. Foothill Division has now become the safest division in the city. In my opinion, with the leadership of Alex Padilla and the work of his staff, the city has kept its promises and is getting things done. – Edwin Ramirez President Pacoima Neighborhoood Council Rational judgment Re “U.S. troops charged in new killing” (June 22): The White House and the secretary of defense should receive letters from each of us asking for a rational judgment for the seven battle-trained servicemen in the brig at Camp Pendleton who are charged with killing someone while looking for insurgents. According to retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, the purpose of war is to kill people and break things. These men were assigned to their missions by high-ranking superiors. They were doing their jobs. Where are the current Gen. Pershings and Gen. Pattons of other wars who stood by their men against the enemy? – Shirley A. Minser Eagle Rock LAUSD takeover I am concerned about our newly elected mayor. He has enough problems with Los Angeles city government that need resolution and does not need to add anything more to his growing list of things he wants to fix. The Los Angeles Unified School District is composed of more than the city of Los Angeles, and I believe that this should be voted on by the voters in those cities who will bear the cost of the change. Neither the governor nor our Legislature should be making this decision for us. The voters should be making this decision. – Miles Hodge West Hills Trip down Route 66 Re “The Mother Road” (June 25): Thank you for the informative and memory-provoking article about Route 66. Yes, my family was one of the many who took “66” to the Midwest each summer to visit family. We got some kicks on Route 66. It is good that there are a few remnants of the original businesses, still along Foothill, etc., and thanks for telling us that the tepee motel is back in business. What a memory trip! – Terri Andrews Castaic What is rich? Re “Fiscally reckless” (Our opinions, June 26): Would you please explain what is unreasonable about allowing people to pass on to their children wealth that they have earned and already paid taxes on? While I am asking questions, I have a few more. I often hear complaints that the rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes. Would somebody please define: What is rich?

Honors on tap for Viet vets

first_imgThe parade is intended to give a welcome to Vietnam veterans, who often were met with hostility when they came home. Organizers said it also is intended to help them deal with the emotions they still feel from the war and their treatment when they returned more than 30 years ago. “Most Vietnam veterans won’t talk about the war,” Chapman said. “They keep it inside themselves.” The parade will be open to veterans from anywhere in the United States, not just the Antelope Valley. Veterans will be able to register at the parade Web site at, though registration is not yet open. Organizers don’t know how many veterans will participate, though the interest they’ve seen so far makes them think it might become the largest parade in Antelope Valley history. “It could be a few hundred. It could be 500. I just don’t know. It depends on how much of the word we get out to the public,” Chapman said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LANCASTER – What started as a national parade last Veterans Day in Las Vegas to recognize and honor Vietnam War veterans – 30 years late – is coming to the Antelope Valley. Vietnam veterans will lead a Nov. 11 parade organized by Vietnam veterans Gary Chapman and Ray Santana, who marched in the 2005 Operation Welcome Home parade in Las Vegas. “It was very emotional,” Chapman said of the Las Vegas parade. “You’d see people on the sides crying. You’d see little kids standing on the sides saluting you. The people were probably 10 or 20 deep. They were all applauding,” Chapman said. “It was hard not to cry.” Chapman, who was a 19-year-old Army helicopter door gunner in Vietnam and now works for Pratt & Whitney in Canoga Park, added: “We have a lot of vets out here.

Councillor slams spate of burglaries as “despicable”

first_imgCouncillor Gerry McMonagle has said he condemns ‘in the strongest possible sense’ those responsible for the spate of recent burglaries which have struck the Manorcunningham area.The Letterkenny based Councillor, who is also chair of the Donegal Joint Policing Committee, was reacting to confirmation from Gardaí that they are investigating an aggravated break-in which occurred at a property in the village yesterday afternoon – the second such incident to have taken place in recent days.Cllr McMonagle said “I am extremely saddened by the confirmation which I have received this morning that Gardaí are carrying out an investigation in Manorcunningham following an aggravated burglary which took place at a property in the village yesterday (Wednesday) evening. “It’s understood that the occupant of the house where yesterday’s incident occurred was threatened by two masked intruders before making off with a sum of cash.“Regrettably, this is the second such burglary which has taken place in the Manorcunningham area this week after a similar break-in occurred at a house involving armed intruders and where again the occupants were threatened with violence and damaged was caused to the property.“These are despicable acts and those responsible for carrying out these burglaries are wanton criminals who have no respect for our community, other people’s property, or the rule of law.“These are the actions of mindless thugs and these attacks must be condemned in the strongest possible sense.” He added his thoughts are with the homeowners and victims involved and said he hopes that life returns to normal for them soon after in what was a terrifying and traumatic experience.He added “I would also appeal to anyone with information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, to report it to An Garda Síochána at Letterkenny Garda Station or the Garda Confidential Line.“These types of crimes have no place in our community and those responsible for them must be brought to justice.”Councillor slams spate of burglaries as “despicable” was last modified: February 28th, 2019 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

first_img19 October 2009President Jacob Zuma has appointed human rights lawyer Advocate Thulisile Madonsela as South Africa’s new Public Protector. Madonsela replaces Advocate Lawrence Mushwana, who left the position on Friday after serving out his non-renewable seven-year term.Madonsela was recommended for the position by a special parliamentary committee following a week of candidate interviews.The Public Protector is an independent institution established in terms of Chapter 9 of the country’s Constitution to strengthen democracy by investigating alleged improper conduct by state agencies or officials.‘Important responsibility’Zuma said Madonsela was taking on an important responsibility. “She will need to ensure that this office continues to be accessible to ordinary citizens and undertakes its work without fear or favour.”An advocate with extensive experience in constitutional, human rights and equality law, Madonsela was most recently a full-time member of the South African Law Reform Commission.As a member of a judicial transformation task team, Madonsela helped draft bills and a strategic plan for transforming the country’s justice system and state legal services as well as the Victims’ Charter and gender and employment equity policy.Zuma thanked Mushwana for the excellent service he had given to the country.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

MySpace Classifieds Now Powered by Oodle

first_imgfrederic lardinois MySpace and Oodle today announced that MySpace’s classifieds section has been re-launched and is now powered by Oodle. The MySpace Classifieds section highlights ads from MySpace users, but also features listings from other Oodle powered sites as well as from other sites Oodle scrapes for listings. Interestingly, Facebook announced a cooperation with Oodle back in 2007, only to then have Facebook launch its own Marketplace just a few days later. This partnership with MySpace gives Oodle access to a large new group of users. According to MySpace, its classifieds see about 1 million visits a month and with Oodle, its inventory is going to go up to 500,000 new listings a day. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Social ClassifiedsThe new classifieds section is also going to make better use of MySpace’s social tools, allowing users to target their MySpace friends for their listings. This social aspect is what can give classifieds on MySpace (or any social network for that matter) a competitive advantage over Craigslist. At the same time, though, it’s noteworthy, as Caroline McCarthy also points out, that Facebook’s classifieds section has never quite become an important service on the site.The only classifieds sites Oodle doesn’t scrape are Craigslist and Kijiji. The relationship between Craiglist and Oodle has been especially rocky, as we reported here. By basically providing a meta-search service, Oodle relies less on its own active users to provide a comprehensive service.The most advanced features of the MySpace integration, however, only work for ads posted by MySpace users themselves. Right now, there are not too many active listings posted by MySpace users, yet. However, as these ads start making their way onto users’ profiles, using MySpace Classifieds for ads could easily become a viral phenomenon on MySpace.
