Olympiakos Closes On Hoop Title

first_imgATHENS – Olympiakos is now a win away from winning the Greek basketball league championship after beating its eternal rival Panathiniakos, 69-64, to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five series.It was the first time in 28 games that the Reds had taken a game from the Greens at Panathinaiko’s home venue of the Olympic Sports Hall. Game 4 is on June 1 at the Peace and Friendship Stadium in Piraeus, Olympiakos’ home court.Panathiniakos, which took the first game of the series, had an edge in rebounding in game three but made too many errors and costly mistakes, including turnovers, while Olympiakos bore down hard on defense.The winners were coming off an easy 25-point victory in the second game and used the momentum to take a 21-15 lead after one and 36-28 at the half, and then ran out to a lead of 16 points, 56-40 after three, making it tough for Panathinaikos to claw its way back into the contest.But the Greens didn’t give up easy, and put on a spurt of 22-8 to come back to a two-point deficit, 64-62 with just a minute left, giving the home fans a lot to cheer about. But some poor decisions and a tight Olympiakos D sealed it at the end for the Reds.Unlike most of the games between the mortal basketball enemies, which feature rowdyism, the crowd was well-behaved, but Panathinaikos President Dimitris Giannakopoulos wasn’t. He fired off a televised statement blaming the referees for the loss in a profanity-ridden outburst. It was not reported whether he will face a fine or other action from the league.In the battle for third place in the league, Panionios beat PAOK 75-57 to close the deficit to 2-1 in their series.

first_imgNew Delhi: Alleging that the BJP was after his life, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that he could be assassinated like former prime minister Indira Gandhi by police personnel deployed for his security.”My own security officers report to the BJP,” the Aam Aadmi Party chief alleged, drawing sharp reaction from the BJP which accused him of playing politics over the “serious” matter of security and making false allegations against it for “cheap popularity”. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarRejecting Kejriwal’s charge, the Delhi Police said the personnel belonging to its unit which provides protection to several high dignitaries of all political parties in the national capital, including Kejriwal, “are thoroughly committed to their job and perform duties with a high level of dedication and professionalism”. Kejriwal, who has the highest Z plus security cover, alleged, “The BJP would get me murdered by my own PSO (Personal Security Officer) one day like Indira Gandhi. My own security officers report to BJP.” Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in Dwarka”The BJP is after my life, they will murder me one day,” he told a news channel in Punjab, where he had been campaigning for his party which is contesting all 13 seats in the state. Earlier this month, Kejriwal was slapped by a man during a roadshow in Delhi’s Moti Nagar area. The Delhi Police had then claimed that the culprit was a disgruntled AAP worker but the party blamed the BJP for the attack. “I will be murdered and police would say it was a disgruntled party worker. What does it mean, if a Congress worker is angry with Captain saab (Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh) can he hit him, if a BJP worker is angry with Modi ji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi), can he hit him?” the AAP chief asked. The Delhi chief minister has a team of 50 police personnel who guard him through the day at different places- his office, while he is moving, his home and when he is interacting with people. The security is beefed up in instances if there is an intelligence input about any threat or if he is visiting a location that is vulnerable. The local police also provide assistance in this, according to officials. The security unit of Delhi Police is a professional set up of well trained personnel who are thoroughly committed to their job and perform duties with a high level of dedication and professionalism. The unit has been providing security cover commendably for several high dignitaries of all political parties. The security personnel posted in the security team of honourable CM, Delhi are equally well committed to their duties, said Anil Mittal, Additional PRO of Delhi Police. BJP leader Vijender Gupta questioned why the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief did not file a police complaint if he had doubts about the integrity of his PSO and said he has insulted the police personnel. “On May 4, before he was slapped, Kejriwal had told his liasoning officer to remove security from his vehicle. His instruction is entered in Roznamcha, which I had exposed earlier. After failing to get political advantage of this incident in the elections, Kejriwal is now saying that his PSO reports to BJP,” the Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly alleged.last_img read more


Punitive laws thwart fight against HIV in homosexual men in AsiaPacific –

The continued criminalization of male-to-male sex in the Asia-Pacific, resulting in harassment and other human rights violations, is hurting the region’s response to HIV, a new United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report has found.Of the 48 countries in the region, 19 of them – including Afghanistan, Bhutan, Kiribati and Malaysia – have outlawed sex between consenting male adults, with these laws often used by vigilantes in ways that lead to abuse and rights violations.The new report notes that police selectively target men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people, leading to assault, extortion and detention in some Asia-Pacific countries with repressive legal environments.It said that police harassment of outreach workers, many of whom are themselves are MSM or transgender, interrupt HIV prevention services.Police often raid events where HIV education takes place and censor materials containing information on the epidemic, UNDP said, while laws banning sodomy discourage the formation of support groups, which are vital for effective peer-based HIV prevention, care and support.HIV prevalence among this group is significantly higher that it is in the general adult population in Asia, it noted, warning that nearly half of all new infections will be among MSM by 2020 unless prevention efforts receive a boost.Nearly half of the countries in the Asia-Pacific identify MSM as being most at risk in their HIV programmes, even though some of their legal environments remain repressive.“Legislation and law enforcement often lags behind national HIV policy, with the result that the reach and effectiveness of programmes for MSM and transgender people are limited,” the report found.It also pointed to the multiple forms of stigma that they confront in most of the region, including discrimination in accessing health care, education, employment and justice.UNDP did note some positive developments in the region, with eight jurisdictions now recognizing that some constitutional protections extend to sexual minorities.In Nepal, for example, the Supreme Court has interpreted the interim constitution as guaranteeing equal rights to people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Government is also considering proposals to introduce wide-ranging legal protections from discrimination regarding sexuality as it drafts its new constitution.“However, these are exceptional developments,” UNDP said. “Examples of high-level political action and law reform to introduce enabling legal environments for MSM and transgender people are rare.”Among the new report’s recommendations are the repealing of laws criminalizing sex between consenting adults, as well as supporting community-based education and advocacy on the human rights of MSM and transgender people.It also calls for anti-discrimination laws to be enacted across the region in relation to sexual orientation and transgender status. 21 July 2010The continued criminalization of male-to-male sex in the Asia-Pacific, resulting in harassment and other human rights violations, is hurting the region’s response to HIV, a new United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report has found. read more


Call to end corporal punishment in Sri Lanka by 2020

The Stop Child Cruelty oraganisation including an Alliance of Professionals and a group of Religious Dignitaries today launched a programme to seek an end to corporal punishment in schools permanently by 2020.For decades the problem has been escalating steadily in most schools, and attempts taken to eliminate this scourge from the education system have failed. Globally, 131 countries including Sri Lanka have taken an enlightened stand and taken significant steps to ban CP due to the serious negative impact CP has on the minds of children in their formative years and on society. Violent physical harm inflicted upon children leads to major emotional and psychological scars with consequences which manifest in adulthood. Bullying, aggressive behavior and ragging in universities are few detrimental after effects which have been proven scientifically through credible research. ECP 2020 is a unique initiative, which commenced taking all these factors into consideration. This Campaign is unique in that, it is designed by a civil society organization, Stop Child Cruelty but is partnered by the Presidential Secretariat (Daruwan Surakimu) and the Sri Lanka Foundation, two leading Institutions of the Government of Sri Lanka.ECP 2020 aim is to present a Petition signed by over 2000 committed enthusiasts who want to see Sri Lanka as a nation free from CP. The Pentagon Proposal which has been developed giving the five overarching key components that are essential to make this a reality. These five components refer to the main arms of the government that are responsible for implementation. Details of the Pentagon Proposal will be made public at the ‘Walk for Real Change’ scheduled on 30th September at 3pm at Independence Square.The Pentagon Proposal will describe how ECP 2020 can be implemented stage by stage between now and 2020. read more

“Continuing opium cultivation in Afghanistan threatens peace and security in the region, providing traffickers and terrorists with a major source of income,” Antonio Maria Costa, the Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), told the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC) in Brussels today.The meeting was held at the Headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which took over security responsibilities in Afghanistan last month. The EAPC was established in 1997 as a multilateral forum for 19 NATO member states and 27 partner countries from Eastern and Central Europe to discuss political and security-related issues, in order to enhance their cooperation.”I would like to encourage NATO forces engaged in Operation Enduring Freedom to help disrupt trafficking routes and illegal drug processing labs, as an integral part of their efforts to create a secure environment for rebuilding efforts in Afghanistan,” Mr. Costa said, reiterating the close relationship between opium trafficking and funding of terrorism. He also stressed the need to further strengthen the security belt around narco-trafficking in and around Afghanistan.Mr. Costa said opium cultivation in Afghanistan remained at approximately the same level this year as in 2002, with the decline in production in some of the traditional opium-growing provinces being counterbalanced by the cultivation spreading to some new areas of the country.He presented the Council with findings from his mission to Afghanistan last month, during which he held extensive consultations with top government officials in Kabul, as well as governors, tribal elders and military commanders in the provinces of Badakhshan and Nangarhar.While praising President Hamid Karzai and the Afghan Transitional Authority’s commitment to fighting opium cultivation, Mr. Costa stressed that the country needs greater international assistance in developing its law enforcement capacity and in providing opium-growing farmers alternative means of livelihood. read more

The budget requests maximum funding from the borough. A resolution for the request for additional funding was introduced at the borough assembly meeting on Tuesday, April 2. In the request from the district, the additional funding would allow the school district to retain some of the non-tenured staff for FY20, as well as provide a cushion in the event of possible state reductions in funding.

2020 Ford Explorer wears selfsealing Michelin tires

Comment 1 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid first drive: A new kind of Explorer Preview • 2018 Ford EcoSport: Small dog with a big bark Enlarge ImageIt’s not going to keep you away from the tire shop, but it may let you get there under your own power or prevent you from having to change a tire on the shoulder of a busy road. Ford Run-flat tires have been a popular option on passenger cars for years now. But just when everybody got comfortable, Michelin threw a set of self-sealing tires into the mix on the new 2020 Ford Explorer.Ford announced Tuesday that the 2020 Explorer will be the first car to come with Michelin Selfseal tires. Standard on the Platinum and Limited Hybrid trims with four-wheel drive, the tires are also available on Limited 2WD and 4WD models for some extra scratch. The clever bit hides inside the tire. The tires contain a natural rubber sealant, which can either surround an embedded object or patch a hole that an object leaves behind. In terms of punctures, Ford says the Selfseal tire can seal 90 percent of tread punctures up to 0.25 inches in diameter. It’s not a perfect seal, though — it only reduces air pressure loss to less than 15 psi per week. In short, it’s enough to get you off the highway and to a tire facility, but not enough to let you continue the remainder of your road trip. Furthermore, this only works with tread punctures — if you get a nail in the sidewall, or the sidewall is slashed through, the tires can’t do anything about that. Worse comes to worse, the 2020 Explorer still has a spare tire.Michelin’s Selfseal tech is radically different than the run-flat tires you might be familiar with. Some run-flat tires use reinforced sidewalls that can handle the vehicle’s weight when tire pressure drops, whereas other run-flat tires may contain a physical ring made of rubber or another material that then supports the vehicle after the tire deflates. Both types of tire may have the same goal — getting you off the road in a safe way — but they take fundamentally different approaches to that goal.
