first_img Armstrong did not reveal how much he paid SCA. Company officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The SCA dispute was just one of several to hit Armstrong since his admission to doping. He previously settled a similar bonus payments dispute with Acceptance Insurance, which had sought US$3 million. Armstrong still faces a federal whistle-blower lawsuit in which the federal government is seeking repayment of more than US$30 million the US Postal Service paid to sponsor his teams from 1998-2004. Penalties in that case could reach the US$100-million range. The federal case was initially filed by former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis in 2010. The government joined the case in 2013. Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France victory because of doping, is scheduled to be deposed today. The case is not set for trial until 2016. EXACT FIGURE UNKNOWN AUSTIN, Texas (AP): With a payment and an apology, Lance Armstrong has settled a decade-long dispute with a promotions company that sought repayment of more than US$10 million in bonuses it paid the former cyclist during a career that was later exposed to be fuelled by performance-enhancing drugs. Dallas-based SCA Promotions first pursued evidence of doping against Armstrong in 2005. Although the company paid Armstrong in 2006, the testimony in its lawsuit and arbitration case helped lay the foundation for later doping charges that ultimately got Armstrong banned from the sport and stripped of his record seven Tour de France victories. SCA demanded repayment in 2013 after Armstrong publicly admitted using steroids and other doping methods. Although Armstrong’s lawyers had insisted there was no legal ground for a “redo” on the previous voluntary settlement, an arbitration panel ordered Armstrong to pay a US$10 million penalty for lying under oath in the original case. “I am pleased to have this matter behind me and I look forward to moving on. I do wish to apologise to SCA and its (chief executive), Bob Hamman, for any misconduct on my part in connection with our dispute and the resulting arbitration,” Armstrong said in a statement yesterday to The Associated Press.last_img read more

first_imgMUMBAI, India (AP):Chris Gayle hopes to smash another century when West Indies returns at the Wankhede Stadium tomorrow for their World Twenty20 semi-final against India.Gayle’s 47-ball century against England gave West Indies a winning momentum in the tournament before Afghanistan broke the three-match winning sequence of the 2012 champions on a turning wicket at Nagpur.”This is a perfect opportunity to actually start the tournament and try and pick up where I left off, get a big one for the team and put them in a winning position,” Gayle said yesterday.A niggling hamstring injury denied Gayle a chance to bat against Sri Lanka. He returned against South Africa but lasted only two deliveries – flicking the first one for four before getting clean bowled off the next ball.He was then rested against Afghanistan in their last last group match.POWER HITTINGBut the batting-friendly wickets in Mumbai with short square boundaries ideally suits the power hitting of Gayle as West Indies raced to 183-4 against England with 11 balls to spare.South Africa also twice scored over 200 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. However, first England denied the Proteas with the second highest ever successful chase of 230-8 and then Afghanistan put up a brisk start before losing by 37 runs in pursuit of South Africa’s 209-5.In the absence of at least two key players leg-spinner Sunil Narine and all-rounder Kieron Pollard, West Indies have ousted South Africa and defending champions Sri Lanka from the tournament.”That goes to show the strength of West Indies cricket back home,” Gayle said. “The guys who actually replaced the first picks, someone like Carlos Brathwaite, he won us the game against South Africa … and the bench is still strong enough.”Gayle said that six-run defeat against Afghanistan has only increased the motivation of West Indies to do well in the semi-final.”The only positive you can look from the Afghanistan game is the motive,” Gayle said.”We saw India bounce back from losing games as well, so it can put us in a strong position as well to actually lift our game and do better on Thursday.”Virat Kohli has been key in guiding the host into the semi-finals with his two masterful half centuries against arch-rivals Pakistan and an unbeaten 82 off 51 balls in the do-or-die last group match against Australia.Gayle was not surprised by the sublime form of India’s master middle-order batsman, who has scored 184 runs at an impressive average of 92.00.”No surprise there. I have said it over the years he is going to be the world beater he is today,” he said.”He has been fantastic right through the year. He has been in great form. He can still get runs but in a losing cause. We’ll be happy with that as well.”- APlast_img read more

Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “Researchers and clinicians have long noticed that women fare worse following head injury than men, but some have said that’s only because women are more willing to report symptoms,” said lead author Michael Lipton, professor of radiology, psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.“Based on our study, which measured objective changes in brain tissue rather than self-reported symptoms, women do seem more likely than men to suffer brain trauma from heading soccer balls.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’For the study, 49 male and 49 female players were given a form of MRI called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), which analyzes the health of the brain’s white matter by looking at water balance in the tissue.Players’ ages ranged from 18-50, and both groups reported a similar number of headings over the previous year. Men reported an average of 487 headings and women 469. LATEST STORIES The scans showed that “the volume of damaged white matter in women soccer players was five times greater than for male players,” according to the report.The women had eight brain regions where white matter — which involves communication between different parts of the brain — were affected, compared to three in men.Researchers said the brain changes were “subclinical,” meaning the players did not report any altered thinking ability.But the changes remain a concern because they could be a precursor to further injury and brain damage, including cognitive decline and behavioral changes.“Before serious dysfunction occurs, it’s wise to identify risk factors for cumulative brain injury, such as heading if you’re female, so that people can act to prevent further damage and maximize recovery,” said Lipton.ADVERTISEMENT View comments S.

first_imgA Liberian pastor, the Rev. Torli Krua, has told an  American group in Portland, Maine in the United States that the widespread infection of Ebola in Liberia is an international concern that they must help.  Rev. Krua, who is on a mission to inform Americans on what is going on in Liberia, said “Here we have Ebola. What can we do together to help? That is my message to people. We as the human family need to reach out to other human beings.” Rev. Krua has visited Maine many times over the past decade speaking at programs in schools and churches about Liberia but these days the only talk about Liberia focuses on the Ebola outbreak and he said most people in America don’t realize just how bad it is.  “Everyday I hear stuff that doesn’t go on the news about people dying, about children who have been abandoned,” he said on an NBC program.   He had spoken at the Boothbay Baptist Church and made friends with a  Southport Island resident, Jason Schlosser. The two men planned a trip to Liberia, but canceled it due to the growing Ebola crisis.   Schlosser said, “Part of me wants to go. There’s a crisis. There’re people in need. Let’s go, let’s do something.”   Instead, he and the pastor are spending their time in Portland, Maine, trying to make people more aware of what’s happening in West Africa and urging them to help. Pastor Krua has set up a website fightebola.us that spells out several ways people can help.  Rev. Krua, who runs a church in New England,   owns the YOUNG-Africa Incorporated that provides information for young people to be able to make their lives better in useful ventures.In one of their last visits to Liberia, several young men and women, some from universities in Monrovia, went through seminars to change their focus to become entrepreneurs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe stunning McElhinneys Christmas window display.McElhinneys is poised for a bumper Christmas season following its participation in a retail incubation programme at Google Ireland.In association with Retail Excellence Ireland, Google invited applications from Irish retailers to join a programme that would equip them with the skills and tools to accelerate their fledgling online businesses.And the Ballybofey store has excelled in the programme – and so has its online sales! Google Ireland Country Manager, Cera Ward, explained, “The companies who qualified for participation in the retail incubation programme had to display a basic knowledge of online business practices. They also agreed to commit resources internally to develop this side of their business and set clear objectives, the results speak for themselves and they are now in a great position to capitalise on the Christmas season ahead.”She added, “Shoppers expect access to what they are looking for 24/7 and on the Internet, the shops are always open. For example, according to Visa Europe over the month of December alone, Irish online shoppers will ring up seven million e-commerce transactions with their visa cards, bringing the total level of e-commerce spending over the four week period to €474m. If as a retailer you are not selling online then you are not in a position to maximise on these opportunities.”McElhinneys department store, which has been in business since 1971, revamped its store website in 2012 and senior manager Roisin Woods says that the Retail incubation programme has helped in surprising ways.“It was a really great opportunity for likeminded retailers to come together and share knowledge and experiences, this sort of opportunity doesn’t come along very often. Since completing the programme all metrics have increased. “Site revenue has increased by 65% this year compared to last year, with sales transacted on mobile and tablet driving that increase. Sales transacted via mobile have increased 174% and mobile 255% over the last 12 months. The incubation course offered great insight into key metrics which if monitored by online retailers can really drive revenue or goals.”Throughout the year the managing directors and senior managers of more than eight businesses came together once a month at Google to get expert advice on topics including analytics, website user experience, online advertising, search, using hangouts and online video to attract customers.All participants found the programme of immense value which helped to steer their digital marketing strategies to target the estimated 4.6bn euro spent by Irish consumers online.McElhinneys say that online is driving their in-store sales with customers regularly requesting items they have seen online, in store. This is borne out in the Google Consumer Barometer which shows that 61% of Irish people research online before making a purchase.The advice for Donegal businesses looking to do well this Christmas is to pay as much attention to your online shop as your physical shop window Christmas display.

first_img “When you have absolute documentation of what takes place in the street, there’s no guessing,” he said. The Board of Police Commissioners backed the camera plan in a Jan. 10 letter to the City Council, calling it a better way to address racial profiling concerns than an ongoing effort to crunch traffic and pedestrian stop data. Constance Rice, one of the city’s best-known civil rights attorneys, agreed, saying clear evidence of what happens after stops is more valuable than trying to decipher officers’ motivations. “I don’t care what you believe, I want to know you’re doing a professional job,” she said. The head of a panel investigating the Rampart scandal, Rice said that several incarcerated former officers told her cameras might have discouraged their crimes. The Public Safety Committee will hold more hearings to discuss legal aspects of the plan, including privacy and public records issues, as well as the cost. Several council members pointed to the city’s Municipal Improvement Corp. debt program as an appropriate funding mechanism. Rice, meanwhile, suggested making the cameras part of a larger bond measure for crime prevention and community development. “I would caution against thinking the technology is going to fix the underlying problems,” she said.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Long-running discussions about adding cameras got a jolt when a court-appointed monitor recently suggested the technology could help the LAPD comply with the federal consent decree governing its conduct. Agencies including the New Jersey State Police and Detroit Police have had success with similar systems, Beck said. The cameras would roll constantly, but long-term recording would be triggered automatically by certain actions, the commander said. Footage of incidents would be digitally transmitted to a police station for archiving. “Think of TiVo at your house,” Beck said, referring to the digital recording device. Police Protective League President Bob Baker said cameras could save the city, and his union, substantial amounts of money in legal costs. Outfitting Los Angeles police cars with video cameras could save about $17 million a year, mostly by trimming overtime for court testimony and use-of-force investigations, officials said Monday. LAPD Cmdr. Charlie Beck called the figure conservative and said that in time it would more than offset the estimated $23 million installation fee plus about $2.3 million per year in maintenance. The figures emerged from a hearing in which a broad array of leaders, including the head of the police officers union, the mayor’s public safety deputy and a prominent civil rights lawyer, backed the installation of cameras in every LAPD vehicle. “That level of support is not unheard of but it’s very significant,” said Councilman Jack Weiss, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, which held the hearing. “And it will be incumbent on our council to follow up and find the money.” last_img read more

first_imgThe Boyle family make their cheque presentation to the Donegal Alzheimer’s Group.A well-known Donegal family has given their mother 8,200 reasons to show her how much they love her.The Boyle family from Manorcunningham wanted to thank the Donegal Alzheimer’s Society for the care they have shown their mother Ethna.So all twelve siblings decided there was only one way to raise some much-needed cash for the group and that was to climb Errigal! And in doing so the family has managed to raise a whopping €8,200.This is their touching story.“On a very wet Saturday morning at the end of August, twelve people gathered at the foot of Errigal for a climb they had been planning for a few months.“Two had come home from England, two home from Scotland and the other eight from their homes in Donegal. “Only a few other hardy souls were on the mountain that day; but the six brothers and six sisters were determined to make the climb for the first time as a family together – some for the first time ever.“The climb was a tribute to the lady who they have watched for the past four years climb her own personal mountain as she struggles to live with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease – their mother, Ethna Boyle of Errity, Manorcunningham.“They aimed to raise a few hundred euros each in sponsorship to donate to support the Letterkenny Social Club each Tuesday at the Clanree Hotel organised by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (Donegal Branch) and their Home Care service throughout the county.“Helena, Manny, Bella-Marie, Rosaleen, Joan, Jemmy, Lorraine, Angeline, Peter, Marty, Paddy and Brendan would like to thank all those who supported, encouraged and donated to them and helped to raise nearly €8,200.“The beginning of the trek brought back happy memories of all playing together outside in the rain. “However, the boggy foot of the mountain also reminded them of something less pleasant – their initial reaction to hearing the news of their mother’s diagnosis: the disbelief, the denial, the anger that their mother was the person effected. Just as the boggy ground slowed their progress, so those feelings stopped them from finding the best way to help their father Seamus to look after their mother.“There still persists a sense of unfairness that a woman who had dedicated her life to helping others as a HSE Home Help, mental health nurse and through volunteering with The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and the Irish Wheelchair Association should now need help with the activities of daily life.“Just as with the climb, different family members progressed at different speeds and with different degrees of difficulty. Although their mother’s illness has brought the family together, no group of twelve people see everything from the same point of view or have the same attitudes.“There can be tensions heightened by the stress that they feel as they watch their mother gradually having to give up many aspects of her life – driving, working, baking, smoking, travel, overseas holidays in the sun. “As they proceeded up the mountain, the mist came in at about half-way up. The dense mist blocked their view of anything more than a few feet in front of them and mirrored the growing confusion that has surrounded their mother as time progresses.“The poor weather made the climb take longer than normal and the sense that the summit would never be reached was felt by many of the climbers – a feeling that they knew only too well from watching their mother gradually deteriorating as she progresses through the seven stages of dementia.“As they reached the summit, they had to decide whether it was safe to cross the final small path to the actual peak. Having come that far, they decided that they had to go all the way despite the dense fog. With varying levels of trepidation, they took the final few strides in small groups to complete the promise they had made to the people who sponsored them.“They took a few moments to think of their mother and said aloud “this is for you Mammy we hope we made you proud”. They all realise that despite how tough it is for them to watch their mother as she progresses through the illness, it must be much tougher for their father to watch his wife grow increasingly less capable, frail and distant.“Seamus is Ethna’s main carer and is grateful for those who still call to visit Ethna, especially her close friend Susan, who is a regular visitor. The family know the importance of good neighbours who know about the illness and helped the family when their mother went through periods of wandering.“She still listens to music on the radio but no longer demonstrates any emotion in reaction to it. She enjoys the music and stimulating activities at the Social Club each Tuesday and still goes to the shops.“As anyone who has climbed Errigal knows, the journey back down is sometimes as nerve-wrecking. The fear of losing one’s footing can sometimes make the journey down as long as the climb.“But they knew their mother would be waiting on them at the foot along with their father and it was quite emotional when they saw her sitting looking out through the window at them. Even when the distressing phases of dementia such as constant repetition and challenging behaviour have passed, the physical stress can be replaced by the emotional stress of not being remembered by someone you have been so close to all your life.“Ethna is now more content and particularly enjoys the company of her devoted dog, Monty. She can no longer talk to her children and recognises a familiar friendly face rather than being able to name her son or daughter, or her several grandchildren aged from four months to twenty-one years.“They miss being able to talk with her; her wonderful baking & cooking are just a memory that none of them seem able to duplicate. But she is still their mother, she is still at home with her loving husband and they know that she loves them just as much as they love her.”DONEGAL FAMILY PROVE NO MOUNTAIN IS TOO HIGH FOR A MOTHER’S LOVE was last modified: October 29th, 2014 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)Tags:Boyle familycharityclimbDonegal Alzheimer’s SocietyErrigalEthnaManorcunninghaMOTHERlast_img read more

first_imgA LOCAL fisherman who drowned after falling overboard from his boat wasn’t wearing a life jacket, a report published by the Marine Casualty Investigation Unit (MCIU) today has said.Well-know Dunfanaghy man Bill McKinley died in the tragedy off Horn Head on June 16 last year.The report also found modifications had been made to the vessel which did not comply with regulations. The ‘MFV Our Jenna’ left from Portnablagh on the morning of June 16 last year, and Mr McKinley fell overboard around the 2.30pm.There were two crew members on board at the time – Mr McKinley and the skipper of the boat.The report says after he had fallen overboard, the skipper had managed to secure the man in the water with a line around his waist.Unapproved modifications to the lobster boat may have contributed to the death, according to the official report into the incident.Sometime after baited pots had been set out ready to shoot, the skipper left his crewman, who was not wearing a personal floation device, on deck as he went to the wheelhouse to set the next waypoint and navigate to the location.However, on arrival he looked out the wheelhouse door to see the crewman in the water off the starboard quarter, conscious and waving his arms – though he was not able to swim.The skipper attempted a rescue with lifebuoys but the crewman was able to grasp them, prompting the skipper to bring the vessel right alongside and pass a line around the crewman’s waist to try to haul him above the waterline in what were described as choppy conditions.Mr McKinley had lost consciousness by the time the skipper raised the alarm over VHF radio, and emergency services were unable to revive him when they reached the vessel some 45 minutes later. The cause of death was confirmed as drowning.But the MCIB identified a more than two-metre opening in the transom bulwark created after the vessel’s most recent Document of Compliance with the Code of Practice has been issued – a modification that would not have conformed to standards.Similarly, rubber laid on the deck after the boat’s last appraisal was of conveyer-belt grade without the same anti-slip properties as dedicated marine matting.Any combinations of these factors could have resulted in the crewman going overboard, the report said.The MCIB also noted that while not mandatory, the use of a safety harness “could well have prevented the incident from occurring”, and the report recommends relevant changes to the Code of Practice.Mr McKinley was a highly respected member of the local community.A recent bowls tournament was held in his memory.INVESTIGATION: MAN WHO DIED OFF DONEGAL COAST WASN’T WEARING LIFE JACKET was last modified: February 22nd, 2016 by John2Share 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) Tags:Bill McKinleydeathHorn Headlast_img read more
