first_imgROME — Italy’s Catholic Church says it will open talks with the government to respond to a European Court of Justice ruling that says Italy has the right to recover millions of euros in property taxes.The Luxembourg-based court on Nov. 6 overturned a 2012 decision by the European Commission that said it would be impossible to recover tax revenue that non-profits including the Italian church were exempted from paying for certain properties.A Montessori school and the owner of a bed and breakfast had argued that the tax breaks the church received for money-making properties offering similar educational and hostel-like services were unfair.The head of the Italian bishops’ conference, Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, said Thursday that no talks with the government have begun but “certainly some contacts will be necessary.”The Associated Presslast_img read more

first_img Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeTHE DÁIL WAS suspended earlier this afternoon following a row between Bríd Smith and the Ceann Comhairle.Speaking during questions on proposed legislation, the Solidarity-PBP TD attempted to raise the case of Ibrahim Halawa, whose trial in Egypt was yesterday suspended for the 20th time.After Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl told her it was not relevant to the current session, Smith accused the Tánaiste of attempting to “shut down the discussion again” on the issue, referring to how her party colleague Paul Murphy received the same response yesterday to a similar query.Smith stressed that it was relevant, as she was questioning if any legislation may exist to attempt to help Halawa.The Ceann Comhairle went on to inform her that his job is to enforce the rules of the House, and asked Smith to resume her seat. When she refused the requests of an increasingly exasperated Ó Fearghaíl, the Dáil was briefly suspended.In response to Murphy yesterday, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said that he was “disturbed” by recent reports on the medical condition of Halawa, and that reiterated that the government is sending a doctor to examine the 21-year-old man:“We wanted to have verified for us, from the point of view of an Irish qualified medical person, the medical condition of Ibrahim Halawa.”I spoke to the Egyptian President on two occasions. I cannot interfere in the judicial process of another country. Getting all the defendants involved in the trial together at one time seems to have been beyond the recourse of the system.

first_img Unlike the recently restructured Time Inc., BI does not plan to lay off employees. In the memo, Blodget revealed the site is the largest producer of tech video globally, garnering over 500 million views monthly. It also boasts over 6 million followers and 15 million monthly unique views, making it the most socially-engaged tech site. As part of the reorganization, TI’s executive editor, Alyson Shontell, will assume the position of editor-in-chief of Business Insider U.S. Meanwhile, editor-in-chief of Tech Insider, Gus Lubin, will serve as a senior correspondent. “Over the past two years, the line between ‘tech’ and ‘business’ journalism has increasingly blurred,” Blodget said in the memo. “The continuum between business and tech has become so smooth, in fact, that we ourselves have often had trouble figuring out who should cover what.” Interestingly, although Tech Insider will no longer be a standalone news operation, it will remain a separate website. Business Insider is reorganizing. Keeping Insider as a standalone operation seems to be in line with BI’s strategy of “placing the stories where the readers are — on social platforms,” as Blodget told Folio: last year, when Axel Springer bought the company.center_img Additionally, Matt Rosoff, Business Insider executive editor and global tech editor, will lead the brand’s larger global tech, science, and innovation team. A staff memo from Henry Blodget, founder and CEO, revealed today that Tech Insider’s editorial team will rejoin the Business Insider team. “The combination of the BI and TI teams will produce some overlap, especially on our tech and science desks. As a result, some roles and assignments will change. But we will offer everyone a position on the combined team,” Blodget said. Insider will remain a separate entity.

first_imgTwo years after Starwood Land Ventures gained control of the redevelopment of the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station from the project’s initial master developer, a new firm is promising to revitalize the long-stalled effort.  After signing a purchase and sale agreement, Raleigh, N.C.-based LStar Management is scheduled to complete its purchase of Starwood’s stake in SouthField, located outside of Boston, on Wednesday.The transaction would represent the latest chapter in a reuse effort that has made only limited headway since the air station closed in 1997. Progress on commercial development at the base has languished, although home construction began in 2011.At Starwood’s urging, the state Legislature last year approved legislation to overhaul the redevelopment by replacing the long-standing LRA with a new authority and shifting responsibility for public services and property tax revenue to the surrounding communities of Weymouth, Abington and Rockland. The measure also gave the developer more flexibility regarding the pace of the project.Starwood had said it would abandon the effort if the state failed to approve its proposed reforms; since the governor signed the overhaul legislation into law last August, the developer has pressed the commonwealth to spend between $20 million and $40 million to extend an access road through the reuse project.SouthField’s reuse plan calls for 2,855 residences and up to 900,000 square feet of commercial space.“We love stepping into this kind of situation,” Kyle Corkum, a managing partner for LStar, told the Weymouth Town Council last week. “It’s still the most exciting opportunity we’ve had and we’re excited to get started.”The new developer plans to take over all payments and obligations that Starwood was responsible for, reported the Patriot Ledger. LStar already has paid part of a $425,000 property tax bill that just came due. Corkum also has pledged to find a long-term solution for supplying water to the project, reported Wicked Local Weymouth.“We want a plan that is ambitious and to have SouthField reach its full potential,” Corkum said.

But underwear company Tommy John decided to survey 1,000 men and women to see how long they wear their unmentionables before changing them. And when the results came out on the company’s site, some readers recoiled at the dirty laundry being shared.”Just over half of respondents say they change their underwear on a daily basis,” the company reported in a blog post. “Forty-five percent admitted to having worn the same pair of underwear for two or more days, while 13 percent claimed to have worn the same pair for a week or more.” Myant The worst offenders are mostly men. The survey showed men are 2.5 times as likely as women to wear the same underwear for a week or more. Being an underwear company, of course, Tommy John wants you to buy lots and lots of its product. So in a separate survey of 1,000 Americans, the company asked questions about how long Americans keep their undies. This is the much more boring part of the survey, because really, do people write the purchase date on their underwear? Who remembers this stuff? The results show Americans are pretty thrifty: 46% of Americans have owned the same piece of underwear for a year or more, and 38% have no idea how long they’ve had their underwear. This time, men and women were equal opportunity offenders.Although the survey is a few weeks old, it started to take off on social media late this week, inspiring some people to come clean about their habits.”They’re nicknamed ‘briefs’ (for) a reason,” one Twitter user wrote. “Because you’re not supposed to wear or own underwear long. This also why I will go broke.” Wrote another: “I pray that no one I know wears the same underwear multiple days in a row.”  Share your voice Are you kidding me? How gross!

first_imgA sign supporting the Haines recall campaign. (Credit: Abbey Collins)On Tuesday, Haines voters will decide whether to recall half of their borough assembly. Three assembly members are accused of misconduct in office. But the discontent driving the recall is about much more than the official charges. And the recall leaders have repeatedly refused to defend their views on the record.Listen now“I’m an obituary writer, and I feel as if there’s been a death in my family,” Assembly member Heather Lende described the personal toll of the recall. “And the grief is going to stay with me.”Lende, Tom Morphet and Tresham Gregg are the targets of this recall election.“Politics in Haines has always been a very rough game,” Morphet said.The three recall targets spoke during a public forum organized by Haines media. More than 30 recall sponsors or supporters were invited. None agreed to participate.In fact, the recall’s main sponsor, Don Turner Jr. has not agreed to any on-tape interviews with KHNS or on-the-record interviews with the newspaper. Instead, he and other recall leaders have used Facebook, newspaper advertisements and a 10-page mailer to share their views.The only recall sponsor who talked to KHNS on tape is Ryan Cook. In a June interview, he said he and others started looking into a recall almost as soon as Morphet and Lende took office last October. Cook was a losing candidate in that race.“This town’s always been split on lots of different issues,” Cook said in June. “But since this assembly’s been in, you’ve never seen it so split before.”Cook and Turner handed in recall petitions in April. They included several charges against the assembly members. Two of those charges made it past the borough attorney.The attorney emphasized that a recall is a political, not legal process. He did not investigate the charges, but said two of them, if assumed to be true, would constitute misconduct in office.One is an alleged violation of the Alaska Open Meetings Act by all three assembly members. The accusation is based on an email in which Gregg asks for Lende’s support on an upcoming vote. He wrote that two other assembly members, Morphet and Ron Jackson, are on the same page. This could imply that Gregg participated in ‘serial polling’ or ‘serial meetings’ – a gray area in open meetings law.“I don’t think that one little email that asks for some support is really an offense worth of recall,” Gregg said.The second accusation is that Morphet and Lende coerced a subordinate for personal or financial gain. It stems from a debate over the Haines police blotter. The police chief, Heath Scott, stopped releasing the blotter to the newspaper, which Morphet owned at the time, and Lende writes obituaries for. Both Morphet and Lende spoke out in support of the blotter being made public again.The two assembly members say calling that coercion of the police chief is absurd.“It strikes me as strange that a grandmother of six somehow has brought the Haines police department to its knees over the police blotter,” Lende said.Recall supporters maintain that the assembly members abused their power in these two cases. But the effort to oust them is about more than the grounds listed on the petitions.The evidence of that is in the ads and flier recall leader Turner has put out. He accuses the assembly members of yelling at borough employees and going against ‘75 percent’ of the people in their decisions. He also points to the assembly firing a previous borough manager and hiring the current manager as ‘good reasons for recall.’“A recall is a gun held to the head of an elected leader,” Morphet said, in response to a question about people voting for the recall for reasons not listed on the ballot. “I ask that people honor the intent of the system and consider the recall only on the grounds on which it was brought.”If early voting is an indication, public interest in the recall election is strong. Borough manager Debra Schnabel said early voting has been ‘unprecedented,’ with more than 30 ballots cast on certain days.If the recall is successful and all three assembly members lose their seats, Haines will be voting for its entire six-person assembly in October. If Morphet, Lende and Gregg retain their seats on the assembly, Ryan Cook said it’s possible the recall sponsors could try again.“If they prove to us they can’t follow the rules and they give us a reason to [recall them,]’” Cook said. “I don’t know. I don’t want to. I don’t want to do it again ever.”One thing Cook and the assembly members agree on is that the recall has been challenging. It’s divided people and damaged friendships.Whether the acrimony continues after the Aug. 15 election remains to be seen.last_img read more

That talent doesn’t belong to men,” he said.“When God created Adam … if Adam had desired a person like him it would not have made him any happier,” Mugabe said.“When a man says he wants to get married to another man, we in Zimbabwe don’t accept it. We can’t talk of women’s rights at all if we go in that direction. It will lead to extinction,” he said.On demands for women’s equality, Mugabe said he doubted women will get equal representation as lawmakers in Zimbabwe.“Our customs look down on women as inferior. Men pay cattle and money to get a wife and expect women to obey them. Women will surely lose. Men say that women are not as knowledgeable as us. The attitude of men still despises women,” he said.Pillay told Thursday’s GlobalPower Women Network Africa meeting on women’s rights that decisive leadership was needed to craft fair laws and policies on property rights for widows, early marriages, sexual violence, marital rape, homosexuality and commercial sex work.

Mugabe’s party militants then repeatedly threatened violence against the men’s lawyers when a court cleared them of engaging in homosexuality.Amnesty also said Thursday that police in Zimbabwe have continued to harass, intimidate and assault perceived opponents of Mugabe’s ZANU PF party.It said in the past year “security elements” had arrested senior politicians aligned to the former opposition in the nation’s three-year coalition government and disrupted their political activities.Human rights defenders were also arrested, detained and tortured, Amnesty said.Mugabe’s party has denied the existence of state-sponsored political violence in meetings with Pillay.

first_imgKenya’s profile as a preferred tourist destination has received a boost with the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) winning the bid to host this year’s World Travel Awards (WTA) Africa region on 16th October this year. The WTA nominations will recognise excellence in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry, thus encouraging nominees to uphold constant improvement in products and delivery of service.Kenya as a host destination comes hot on the heels of KTB’s award as the Africa’s leading Tourism Board by WTA in December last year. In February this year, KTB was also honoured as “Best African Tourism Board” in the Africa Safari awards held in London England.“World Travel Awards (WTA) is coming to Kenya at the right time after a successful and peaceful general election under a new constitution. This has further raised the country’s profile as a safe destination” Says KTB Managing Director Muriithi Ndegwa. “That WTA has chosen Kenya for the African region ceremony as part of the world grand tour, is an endorsement of the country as a preferred tourism destination in the world”, added the Managing Director.Graham E. Cooke, President and Founder, WTA, added, “The selection of our hosts is fundamental to the success of our awards programme, and Kenya as a nation has all the ingredients to rise to the challenge of hosting our Africa Ceremony – a warm, vibrant and progressive nation, brimming with enthusiasm and creativity. Tourism is vital to Kenya’s economy, contributing 12 percent to its GDP and sustaining one in ten jobs. The future is bright for Kenya, given the nation’s overwhelming natural resources, its unrivalled wildlife experiences and pristine beaches.”Kenya is located in East Africa and boasts white sandy beaches bathed by the Indian Ocean as well as the majestic snow-capped Mount Kenya. It is increasingly emerging as an Adventure destination offering activities from hot air ballooning, to authentic cultural interactions with the local ethnic communities, as well as visits to the world renowned Masai Mara, with breath taking safaris and wildebeest migrations, supported by a miscellany of unique superior class accommodation.WTA’s 2013 Grand Tour will include regional events in the Dubai (UAE), the Maldives, Turkey, Kenya, Peru, Antigua and Singapore throughout the year. The winners of these regional events will progress to the Grand Final, which will take place at the end of 2013. The ceremonies are widely regarded as possibly the best networking opportunities in the travel industry, attended by government and industry leaders, luminaries, and international print and broadcast media.The 2012 WTA Grand Tour ceremonies were attended by more than 3,000 guests from 92 countries, as well as media from 194 TV channels and publications.Source = World Travel Awardslast_img read more

first_imgNorman’s 15 passes defensed ranks second on the Redskins.Peterson, meanwhile, is one of the least targeted cornerbacks in the NFL.“When you talk bump-and-run technique, he’s the best technician I’ve seen,” Gruden said. “Darrelle Revis was obviously very, very good also, but Patrick, when you’re trying to teach a young guy how to play bump-and-run, he’s the first guy I’ll pull up. Josh is very cerebral, has great natural ball skills, a very good, sound tackler, a very solid corner in the National Football League. They’re a little bit different, but they’re both very, very good.”The new ‘Gumby’Not only does linebacker Chandler Jones lead the league in sacks (14.0) and tackles for loss (24) this season, he’s the only player that ranks in the top-5 in each category.With one sack against the Redskins, Jones would become just the third player in franchise history with 15.0+ sacks in a season and the first with at least one sack in 12 games in a single season.“He’s like Gumby,” Gruden said. “I don’t know how he contorts his body the way he contorts his body. He’s got really strong hands, too. He gets a hold of the offensive tackle’s jersey, and then he can contort his body and get low and his pad level. He’s fun to watch. I try to make pass-rush cut-up tapes every offseason. He’s one of my top guys that I put on there.” TEMPE, Ariz. – Availability is just as important as ability when it comes to playing in the National Football League. Maybe even more so.Case in point: Arizona Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams.With Adrian Peterson sidelined once again—and missing the rest of the season because of a neck injury—Williams will make his third straight start on Sunday at Washington.Prior to this opportunity, Williams watched as the Cardinals used David Johnson, Chris Johnson and Peterson in the backfield. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I’ve never been anyone’s first pick. Ever,” he said. “I’ve never really relied on that, someone else picking me. I always pick myself first. I really try to outwork the doubt, that’s really the biggest thing.”In the last two games, Williams has taken full advantage of his opportunities, rushing for a combined 170 yards on 36 attempts. That’s almost a five-yard per carry average.Oh, and don’t forget Williams is playing with cracked ribs.“This is what we expected. That’s why he’s here,” said head coach Bruce Arians, who has also seen Williams develop into a reliable return specialist. “He couldn’t catch punts two years ago to save his life, but he catches them really good now. That’s just Kerwynn. Whatever it takes for him to make the team, he’s going to do it, but then when he makes it and you put him out there, you’re getting his best.”Williams might not be the biggest—he’s listed at 5-foot-8 and 198 pounds—or the strongest or even the fastest among the Cardinals’ running backs. But no one is going to outwork him. And the on-field results speak for themselves.“We all know he can run the football, but seeing blitzes, picking up protections, catching the ball out of the backfield, just being kind of that total running back that you want to see,” quarterback Blaine Gabbert said. “But, just the way he has been running the football lately, getting through that initial line of defenders, getting in the linebacking corps, making some moves, getting into the secondary and really just keeping our offense ahead of the chains.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Another early startThis week’s game marks the Cardinals’ sixth in the early time slot this season, and they’ve won only one of those Sundays, Week 2 at Indianapolis.“Football is football. It doesn’t really affect me too much,” wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “I know what I’m going to D.C. to go do. It’s not a sightseeing tour, I’m not going to go play golf at Congressional. I’m going there to take care of business. It’s a business trip for us, and we’ll be ready to go whenever they kick the ball off.” Arizona Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams (33) jumps over Cardinals offensive guard Earl Watford (71) as Tennessee Titans inside linebacker Wesley Woodyard (59) moves in to attempt a tackle during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec.10, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. The Cardinals defeated the Titans 12-7.
