Legislature Takes Testimony on Vermont Chamber’s Proposal to Manage Vermont’s World Trade Office

first_imgDiscussions are underway in the Senate General Affairs Committee to direct the Vermont World Trade Office to be managed under the Vermont Chamber’s existing international trade program, in conjunction with Champlain College, the U. S Department of Commerce and the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. These partners collectively will strategically collaborate to encourage international trade on behalf of Vermont businesses. Funding would come through a memorandum of understanding and initially would be a $100,000 grant.While this is a significantly different model than the current World Trade Office, this new business entity will be driven by the concerns of the business community while having capital knowledge input from the educational community as well as state and federal government.The World Trade Office budget was also comprised of significant federal funds, which have not been renewed. On Thursday Governor Jim Douglas stated “I think this public-private partnership is appropriate given that some significant federal grant support for the office is expiring,” Douglas said. “And since those grants are not likely to renewed, a partnership makes sense.” Agency of Commerce Secretary Kevin Dorn is working closely with the Vermont Chamber as the effort to continue to support Vermont businesses with world trade opportunities continues to unfold in the legislaturelast_img read more

Ernie Els enters World Golf Hall of Fame

first_img“I was so pleased to hear the news that Ernie has been selected to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame,” he said. “Ernie certainly deserves this recognition, as he epitomises a ‘world’ golfer. AutismApart from his excellence as a golfer and the opportunities he has created for youngsters through his foundation, Els is also striving to make a difference in the lives of people who have autism, or who are affected by it. “I spent several happy years at Ernie’s foundation and whenever I wanted help since I have been out on Tour, Ernie has happily given it. I could not have found a better role model.” Long before he turned professional, Els began making his mark and his name first sprung to prominence in 1984 when he won the 1984 Junior World Golf Championship in San Diego by beating home town golfer Phil Mickelson in the final. It has indeed been a long journey. ‘A great inspiration’Schwartzel said: “Ernie has been a great inspiration and friend to me for years. He is always happy to give his time and expertise, and I have been the grateful beneficiary of his generosity.” He topped the European Tour’s Order of Merit in 2003 and 2004. He has also won the World Matchplay Championship a record seven times. Gary Player is tied with Seve Ballesteros for the second most wins, with five. Els Center for ExcellenceEls, along with his wife Liezl, has established the Els Center for Excellence which, it is planned, will combine the Renaissance Learning Center with a research facility. It is a $30-million project and the couple has committed $6-million of their own money to it. 11 May 2011 Oosthuizen told Helen Ross on the PGA Tour website: “If it weren’t for Ernie Es, I would not be where I am today. It’s as simple as that. ImpactHis impact, however, extends beyond his achievements on the course. South African golf is going through a purple patch at present, with Charl Schwartzel the current Masters champion and Louis Oosthuizen the British Open champion. Both of them were members of Els’ junior golf foundation, now known as the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation. To top things off, mention must be made of Els as a successful golf course designer, with top class layouts in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and southern Africa. It is not only the younger generation of South African golfers that appreciates what Els has done. Gary Player, too, was full of praise for him.center_img Success around the worldEls has won 15 times on the PGA Tour, 21 times on the European Tour, 18 times on South Africa’s Sunshine Tour, and recorded eight other wins besides. He has also played in the Presidents Cup six times, represented South Africa in the Dunhill Cup in nine consecutive years, and in the World Cup five times. “He is a credit to the game and an ambassador for the sport. Ernie has been a wonderful friend over the years and I am very fond of him and his family.” South African great Ernie Els was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame on Monday. He joins the legendary Gary Player, who entered the Hall in 1974. In 2009, he hosted the first annual Els for Autism charity golf event, which featured many PGA Tour and Champions Tour players. That year, he raised $725 000 for the Renaissance Learning Center, a non-profit school for autistic children, near his residence in West Palm Beach, Florida. They include, among others, the Savannah course at Mission Hills in China, the re-design of Wentworth in England, The Durrat al Bahrain in Bahrain, The Els Club in Dubai, Hoakalei in Hawaii, and Oubaai in South Africa. The other members of the 2011 Hall of Fame class were Jock Hutchison, Doug Ford, Jumbo Ozaki, Frank Chirkinian, and former US president George Bush. His son Ben is autistic and Els has used his profile to raise money for charities devoted to the condition, whilst also establishing the Els for Autism Foundation. The pace of fund raising at the charity golf event has been maintained, and after it was recently held for a third time the money raised by it had topped $2.2-million. Nicknamed “The Big Easy” because of his wonderful swing, Els was elected in his first year on the ballot. That’s not surprising as he has won 62 titles so far in his career, including two US Opens and one British Open title. Much like Player, he has enjoyed success around the world.

AFC Cup: Heavy defeat leaves Ceres needing miracle

A 5-0 win at home will allow the Busmen to advance, but a 4-0 scorline will send the tie to extra time. But with the way the Tajik champions dominated the first leg, it seems the Busmen would need a miracle for that to happen.

Romish Dhzalilov doubled the lead at the stroke of halftime with a clinical strike that left Roland Muller with no chance. The Busmen hardly threatened in the first half as Istiklol controlled proceedings, pressing high and winning the ball early. It didn’t help that the Busmen missed their top defender Super Herrera to suspension as Kawase struggled to deal with Barkov.

Jerome Choquette Quebec justice minister during October crisis dead at 89

first_imgMONTREAL – Former Quebec justice minister Jerome Choquette, who helped navigate the province through the October Crisis, has died at the age of 89.His former press secretary Jean-Claude Gobe said Choquette died Friday in Montreal after a long illness.Gobe described his friend as a “political giant” who helped to shape modern Quebec.“He was a humanist, a man who wanted to help people and who wasn’t guided by partisan lines or narrow-mindedness,” he said in a phone interview.Choquette was known for his role during the 1970 October crisis, when he served as justice minister under then-premier Robert Bourassa.In that role, he held the first government news conference after the abduction of British diplomat James Cross.He was also the one to announce that the government would not meet the kidnappers’ demands to release 23 jailed members of the nationalist Front du Liberation du Quebec, or FLQ.Choquette took to carrying a revolver at his side during the crisis, which he later explained was so he wouldn’t be intimidated.But despite his tough image, he also tried to calm things down by suggesting that Bourassa name a minister of social peace.When the federal government eventually invoked the War Measures Act, Choquette tried to act to limit the mass arrests that followed, he told the French language CBC years after the fact.“When I saw these arrests were massive and, in some cases, with little justification, I told (then-provincial police head Maurice Saint-Pierre) that I didn’t want a single additional arrest without my personal authorization,” he told the CBC in 1980.Years later, Choquette said he was “perfectly at peace” with his actions during the crisis.“I did what I had to do,” he said in 2010. “Had I acted differently, I would have failed in my duties.”Despite Choquette’s public statements, Gobe says it was painful for his justice-minded friend, who was a lawyer by training, to suspend people’s liberties.“He believed in liberty, he truly believed in it, so having to suspend freedoms with the War Measures Act, he was not happy about it,” Gobe said.Several years after the crisis, Choquette introduced a bill to establish the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.He is also credited with setting up Quebec’s legal aid system.Choquette was born in Montreal in 1928 and was elected to Quebec’s legislature three times beginning in 1966.After leaving provincial politics, he served as mayor of Outremont from 1983 to 1991 before resuming his legal career.last_img read more

Our honor defended by OSU defense

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Ohio State football freshman quarterback Braxton Miller completed just 1-of-4 passes against then-No. 16 Illinois, but it didn’t matter because the Buckeyes’ defense was up to the task. Defensive coordinate Jim Heacock’s unit limited Illinois to just seven points and 285 total yards of offense at Memorial Stadium Saturday as the Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2) captured a 17-7 upset win against the Fighting Illini (6-1, 2-1.) First-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell said two keys to Saturday’s game were turnovers and field position. In addition to denying the Illinois offense throughout the game, the OSU defense helped satisfy the two needs Fickell identified for the team. OSU held a 3-0 advantage at half time, but an interception by freshman corner back Bradley Roby, which he returned 36 yards, helped the Buckeyes extend their advantage. With the team just 12 yards from the end zone, Daniel “Boom” Herron scored on a touchdown on the next play to put the Buckeyes up, 10-0. “This is a game of momentum,” Fickell said after the game. “That’s probably the biggest thing about it (Roby’s interception). One thing we’ve lacked on defense is making some plays and to have a play start right there and then answer right away with the offense — that’s what this game is all about.” The touchdown came in Herron’s 2011 debut and with his return to the lineup, only senior receiver DeVier Posey remains suspended for the Buckeyes. Posey sold OSU football memorabilia in exchange for improper benefits in the form of tattoos and was also overpaid for work he did not do at a summer job. Sophomore corner back Dominic Clarke, who was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for shooting what one witness described as a “compressed-air” gun from the top of Marketplace, a diner on OSU’s campus, did not travel with the team to Champaign. Another turnover that positioned OSU for a score came in the fourth quarter. Junior linebacker Storm Klein recovered a fumble on Illinois’ 37-yard line. Three plays after that, OSU again used the short field to its advantage as Miller completed his only pass of the game to junior tight end Jake Stoneburner for a 17-yard touchdown to put OSU up, 17-0. There was more to OSU’s defense than positioning the offense for scoring opportunities too. The Buckeye defense limited Illinois, which averaged 226 yards per game through six games, to 116 rushing yards on Saturday. “We tackled well,” Fickell said. “We didn’t give up big plays.” Sophomore safety C.J. Barnett agreed. “The coaches gave us a good game plan,” Barnett said. “We were able to execute. Everyone was able to do their job.” Sophomore defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, junior defensive tackle John Simon and Klein also combined for seven tackles for loss, totalling -23 yards against Illinois. Simon, who claimed four of the seven tackles for loss and added two sacks, and Hankins both tallied career highs in tackles with eight and nine, respectively. Simon and Hankins helped OSU hold Illinois’ offense to 162 yards below its per game average through six games. Thanks to an efficient outing from both OSU’s offensive and defensive units, OSU junior tight end Reid Fragel said the team was ecstatic in the locker room after the game. “It’s a much-needed win,” Fragel said. “We kind of felt like our backs were against the wall. (With) both sides of the ball finally coming together, playing some good football, that’s big for us.” Fickell said more improvement is needed as the Buckeyes enter their bye week. “We’re not going to let this define us,” Fickel said. “This game is a lot more fun when you win. That momentum is so huge… and maybe those guys (the OSU players) haven’t had that in a while.” After the bye week, the Buckeyes continue Big Ten Leaders Division play against No. 4-ranked Wisconsin on Oct. 29 at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

Mens Basketball B1G 100 No 13 Ohio State has a chance vs

Ohio State freshman forward Kaleb Wesson (34) works his way into the paint in the first half of the game against Maryland on Jan. 11 in the Schottenstein Center. Dakich made three of four three point attempts in the first half aiding Ohio State to a 91-69 win. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorNo. 13 Ohio State (18-4, 9-0 Big Ten) has survived a few scares. On Jan. 17, it came within four points of losing to Northwestern in the final minute in an eventual 71-65 win and was trading leads with Nebraska Monday, until pulling away late to a 64-59 win.Now it welcomes a struggling Penn State (13-7, 3-4 Big Ten), which has lost four of its past six games, to the Schottenstein Center at 8 p.m. Thursday, with eyes set on a 10-0 start to Big Ten play.Projected StartersPenn State:G — Jamari Wheeler — Freshman, 6-foot-1, 170 lbs., 3.1 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.0 apgG — Tony Carr — Sophomore, 6-foot-5, 204 lbs., 18.9 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 4.8 apgG — Shep Garner —Senior, 6-foot-2, 196 lbs., 10.4 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 1.4 apgF — Mike Watkins — Redshirt sophomore, 6-foot-9, 254 lbs., 13.3 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 0.7 apgF — Lamar Stevens — Sophomore, 6-foot-8, 226 lbs., 15.6 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.0 apgOhio State:G — C.J.

Nine of their 21 games have been decided by single digits, and two have gone into overtime.Part of the reason they are in so many close games has been their defense. Penn State has the 43rd-best defensive efficiency in the country and has held opponents to just a 47 percent effective field goal percentage (37th-best), according to the advanced statistics website KenPom.com. It also ranks in the top 25 in blocking and steal percentages.However, this defense matches up poorly against Ohio State. It typically plays man-to-man, a type of defense Ohio State has flourished against this season. The best way to slow down Ohio State’s 31st-best offensive attack has been to run a zone defense. Penn State’s offense also will not match up well against Ohio State’s defense. Though the Nittany Lions have shot 37.4 percent from the 3, they generate 54.4 percent of their offense from inside the arc, the 57th-highest rate in the nation.Teams that have been able to beat Ohio State do so from long range, with 36.4 percent of opponents’ points coming from 3-point range, 36th-highest in the country. Opposing teams have mustered only the 257th-highest 2-point percentage in its point distribution at 46.9 percent.Monitoring Kaleb Wesson’s minutesOhio State has relied heavily on freshman center Kaleb Wesson this season. After sophomore center Micah Potter injured his ankle in the fourth game of the season, Wesson took over as the starter and has not let up.As a starter, Wesson has averaged 11.3 points and 5.4 rebounds in 21.6 minutes per game. While the numbers don’t jump out, Wesson has become a better defender and has avoided foul trouble more. He has fouled out three times as a starter, but only once in his past 10 games.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said that even though Wesson has shown improvements and has been a key cog in the team’s success this season, he still does not want to put much pressure on his young big man by playing him too much.“It’s a lot to expect a kid of his size as a freshman really even to play 20 minutes,” Holtmann said. “I think his minutes are probably where we’d like for them to be. I think sometimes he could play a little more, sometimes a little less depending on how he’s playing. He’s done a very good job with the minutes, but I wouldn’t want to put 30 minutes on him right now as a freshman.”Wesson’s conditioning has improved, but it is clear after five minutes on the court that he gets worn out. He starts to breathe heavily and is slower to post and seal, meaning the team needs to bring in a fresher defender to maintain solid interior play. As he continues to develop and adjust to the workload, Wesson will turn his raw tools into game skills and be able to keep using those tools later into games, Holtmann said.“He’s so gifted with his hands and I think his feet can get better,” Holtmann said. “They’re not bad right now, but they’ve got to get a lot better in the offseason. His explosiveness, his movement. But I think that you can tell pretty early on when he’s [tired].” read more

Neville discusses contrast in media coverage for players

first_imgGary Neville has been discussing the contrasts between the media coverage of white and black players of England.The Manchester United legend went on to explain the difference between the coverage of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling during in the Euros hosted in France in 2016.“Directly in that tournament, Harry Kane, who is the blue-eyed boy of English football, he’s a sensational player, we love him to bits,” Neville said, according to Daily Mail.“He was having a difficult time in that tournament and it was portrayed because he was on corners.”“Raheem was having a difficult time and it was because of other reasons and more personal reasons at times, and the language used towards him was difficult. I don’t think he could understand. I think he was asking me why this was happening.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Post-tournament, we got knocked out and obviously it was bad from a football point of view. The abuse that he received, particularly in the media, beyond that tournament, and the language that was used against him, I’ve not seen it before, and I played closely with David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, I played with Paul Gascoigne at Euro 96. I’ve seen a lot over the years.”“I look back on that time now and think was I really walking by on the other side and not dealing with the real issue, is that the right reaction? He was willing to continue playing, he has continued to play at an outstanding level. But he’s been carrying this now for years. This is not just on Sunday, not just a Chelsea fan.”“This has been going on for years about him, and I’ve known about this for years because he came to see me in 2016, so was it happening before that even?”“It’s a really difficult situation where you think how would I deal with that again? How would I try and help him? Because he’s a tough lad, he really is, to come through everything he’s coming through and the scrutiny he’s faced with. To perform like he has done is a miracle almost,” Neville concluded.last_img read more
