first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInGlasgow University’s School of Interdisciplinary Studies (SoIS) welcomed a delegation of distinguished academics from two of China’s most prestigious environmental research institutions to Dumfries on Wednesday (31 July 2019).Dr John Shi, Senior Lecturer in Hydrology, used his connections in China to bring academics from the Shanghai Academy of Agricultural Sciences (SAAS) and the Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CREAS) in Beijing to the School to discuss current research, other interests in common and the potential for future collaborations.Following discussions between the visitors and staff from SoIS, including Fabrice Renaud, Professor in Environmental Risk / Community Resilience, Dr Jane Cavani, School Director for Internationalisation, and Natalie Anderson, Head of Professional Services, the visitors toured the campus, noting the excellent facilities provide by the University in their Rutherford-McCowan and Maxwell House buildings, before enjoying further lively discussion over lunch.Dr Shi explained how important this visit was.  He said:  “The work to address current environmental issues in China being undertaken by SAAS and CRAES is incredibly important and reflective of many of the environmental issues covered in our MA Environmental Science and Sustainability programme.“There is real potential for a strategic international partnership between SoIS, SAAS and CREAS that would be of benefit to all three institutions; their students, academics and the countries involved.”Professor Renaud said:  “The School already has strong research and teaching links with China through the joint graduate programme in Environmental Science with Nankai University in Tianjin.  This visit contributes to developing new and synergistic collaborations with two exceptional organisations undertaking valuable research on global issues.”last_img read more

WAWU urges end of dispute between DAPSA & employees

first_imgLocalNews WAWU urges end of dispute between DAPSA & employees by: Dominica Vibes News – July 9, 2015 94 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share The Waterfront and Allied Workers Union (WAWU) wants an immediate end to a 13 year dispute between the Dominica Air and Sea Ports Authority (DASPA) and some of its employees. According to Secretary Treasurer of WAWU, Kertist Augustus there are profound challenges confronting the members of the port branch in their relations with DASPA.Mr Augustus told the Union’s 18th biennial delegate’s conference on Thursday 9 July 2015; said the employee’s “wages will be drastically reduced by some 33 percent and their employment levels by some 27 percent”. As such the tribunal was established in 2004 and it was expected would bring closure to the dispute.Mr Augustus therefore expressed concern about the non-sitting of the tribunal to resolve this dispute. “The port branch continues to be concerned with the non-sitting of the tribunal which was set up to resolve the dispute between the DASPA and the union”.“We want the chairman of the tribunal to arrange for the sitting and the final sitting of the tribunal and to conduct the hearing even if the lawyers representing DASPA is not present in order to bring closure to a 13 year old tribunal and a 13 year old dispute,” Mr Augustus noted. He said at least one member of the employer’s panel has already been removed from the tribunal which is “unfortunate”.“The DEF is seeking to, and have in fact gotten, the green light to remove from the tribunal Mr. Anthony Commodore a member of the employer’s panel from the tribunal board because it is perceived that he is not always sympathetic to their cause,” he said. Mr. Augustus added that this ongoing impasse between DASPA and the port branch members needs to be resolved without further delay.last_img read more

Nov. Targeted 22 littered with DL

first_imgWith the 2015 season winding down, the recruiting scope is about to expand for several of Mississippi’s top-ranked prospects.Columbus junior running back Kylin Hill jumped into the top 10 of the Targeted 22.Columbus junior running back Kylin Hill jumped into the top 10 of the Targeted 22.Over the next month, seniors will finalize their official visit schedule and those who are uncommitted will narrow down their lists as National Signing Day draws closer.In the junior class, a good amount of early offers are being handed out to 2017 prospects across the country. Several Mississippians have been on the receiving end of interest and offers from Division I programs.As always, the Targeted 22 is a fluid list that could change significantly from now until signing day in 2016. It evaluates a prospect’s stock as a recruit, offers, visits, recruiting buzz and momentum into account.Here’s a look at the top 22 hottest in-state prospects in November.1. Jeffery Simmons, DE, Noxubee County — Getting this four-star prospect on campus is a big deal, and Tennessee succeeded in doing so by hosting Simmons on his first official visit last weekend for its 27-24 win over South Carolina. Simmons claims no favorites but has visited Mississippi State and Ole Miss multiple times this season. Once his quest for another state championship is complete, Simmons’ recruitment will become the most talked about thing in Mississippi.2. A.J. Brown, WR, Starkville —  Brown’s monster senior season continues into the playoffs. He’s already passed 1,000 yards receiving and has been on a different college campus nearly every weekend this fall. Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama are all serious contenders for the state’s top wideout.3. Nigel Knott, CB, Germantown — The cornerback took time away from his recruitment to focus on leading Germantown into the playoffs. Knott delayed his decision in September so he’d have time to take his remaining four official visits, which may include Alabama, USC and Florida State. He’s been to Ole Miss and Mississippi State several times unofficially, so expect the two in-state programs to contend for the next few months.4. Cam Akers, ATH, Clinton (Jr.) — Akers, an Alabama commit, has spent his recent weekends away from Mississippi with visits to Tuscaloosa and Tennessee. He was one of a handful of top prospects on hand to watch Mississippi State host Alabama, and the Bulldogs are looking to make up ground with the state’s top junior and become a bigger player in his recruitment.5. D.D. Bowie, WR, Morton (Jr.) (No. 6 previously) — As expected, Bowie flipped his commitment from Alabama to Ole Miss several weeks ago and became the Rebels’ first 2017 pledge. The 6-foot-1, 197-pounder gives Ole Miss two things: major recruiting momentum and the versatility to be effective as a receiver, in the run game or as a defensive back.6. Scott Lashley, OL, West Point — Lashley remains one of the hottest names in the country. Oregon O-Line coach Steve Greatwood flew all the way to Mississippi last month to extend Lashley his 25th Division I offer.7. Kobe Jones, DL/OL, Starkville — Jones continues to have a patient approach with his recruitment. He’s visited Mississippi State a number of times this fall and will begin to schedule his official visits next month, which will likely include Ole Miss and Alabama.8. D.K. Metcalf, WR, Oxford (11) — Did you see Metcalf’s ridiculous one-handed catches from Oxford’s win vs. Lake Cormorant? Ole Miss is head over heels to know it has this athletic freak locked up and coming to Oxford in a few months.9. Kylin Hill, RB, Columbus (13) — Hill’s junior season ended short of where he wanted, but the running back made a name for himself with over 1,800 yards rushing, an 8.9 average per rush and 18 TDs. Mississippi State is his leader, and a commitment to the Bulldogs could come very soon.10. Benito Jones, DT, Wayne County — Jones recently received his jersey to play in the Under Armour All-America game with Knott and Brown. ESPN has him as a five-star prospect while other recruiting services may bump him up by year’s end.11. Raekwon Davis, DL/OL, Meridian — Things are quiet for this Alabama commit. Maybe too quiet. Once his senior season is over, Mississippi State and Alabama will further its battle to land the 6-foot-7.5, 318-pounder who will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January.12. Drelan Porter, DE, South Panola — Porter put together another monster year and lived up to his M.O. as a quarterback’s worst nightmare with his pass rush. Mississippi State loves his versatility and could help him transition into an outside linebacker.13. Octavious Cooley, TE, Laurel (14) — Cooley is as solid as you can get with a commitment. The Ole Miss pledge has been a constant presence in Oxford this fall and is a tremendous grab for the Rebels.14. Daniel Crowell, WR, Meridian (15) — The three-star receiver will commit on Nov. 29, and it looks like Ole Miss will lock up its one-time commit. But Cowell has a visit set to Ohio State prior to the Egg Bowl, so don’t count out the Buckeyes yet.15. KaDerrion Mason, DE, McComb (22) —The three-star strong-side defensive end released his top 5 recently, which includes Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Kentucky, Cal and Louisiana Tech. Mason has lined up everywhere on the D-Line this year, and schools are taking note of his versatility to play tackle or end.16. Willie Gay, LB, Starkville (Jr.) (NR) — The outside linebacker picked up his fifth SEC offer from Georgia this month and says he’s nearing a decision. The in-state SEC schools are heavy in the mix, but Alabama is up there as well.17. Zaire Jones, DB, Meridian — Jones is going to be a prospect people talk about years from now and say, “How’d the in-state schools let him get out of Mississippi?” The three-star safety is committed to Vanderbilt and in the midst of a strong senior season.18. Jack Abraham, QB, Oxford (NR) — The Tulane commit visited Cal over Halloween weekend and has a big decision to make: stay with his commitment to the Green Wave or make the jump to a Power 5 school.19. Nero Nelson, ATH, Simmons (21) — Nelson gave Mississippi State a tutorial in his versatility this season. The Bulldogs will likely use him as a DB, but Nelson is also incredibly effective as a slot receiver and in the run game.20. Damion Dickens, DL, Holmes Central (NR) —  Mississippi State has always had the upper hand in Dickens’ recruitment and could add him to its 2016 class in the near future.21. Myles Brennan, QB, St. Stanislaus (Jr.) (NR) — The gunslinger has thrown for over 4,000 yards this season and picked up offers from West Virginia and Cal.22. Marquiss Spencer, DL, Greenwood (NR) — Spencer is quickly closing in on 20 sacks and is one of the top uncommitted defensive line prospects in the state. Mississippi State is the favorite to land the Greenwood product, who reclassified to 2016 before the start of the season.Contact Courtney Cronin at (601) 961-7091 or ccronin@jackson.gannett.com.

FIFA 07 out 10/3

Generally, the kits look to be the same as last year in the sense that some of the lesser known teams do not have their exact kits, just the correct color(s). It appears that new sponsors on shirts made the game, for example, Man U. has AIG. I’ll update after I’ve played more. 0 Posted October 4, 2006 Share on other sites Members For the first time I can remember, gambling-based sponsors are in the game. Wembley Stadium, a facility that may never be completed, is also in the game.Don’t get me started on the goalkeeping, however. horrorshow Members You can’t forget that the Nike tick is present once again on the shirts, unlike the past few years. Some of the number colors are off, but that’s to be expected given the number of clubs in the game. There’s also a huge collection of Adidas balls. The one thing I’ve always wondered though, is why the Camp Nou is missing the Barca crest on their respective positions on the pitch.

Got to play for a few hours last night…the game looks so much better than last year on the current gen. All of the presentation updates in the World Cup game are in tow, with a handful of new stadiums and the updated uniforms. Being an Arsenal fan, I did notice that the team’s socks are all red, instead of the proper white with red cuffs. In defense of EA, the team wore red socks during some of the early August exhibitions, so the programmers might have been using that template.Played with Real Madrid in the Bernabeu, as well. Uniforms are spot on and you can buy the purple third kit in the store.Emirates Stadium in the game is lined with red and white banners on the grandstand edges…unfortunately, the actual stadium isn’t that colorful yet (AFC, take note). If Wembley Stadium in reality looks as nice as the one in the game, it will be a gem.In the player edit, you can have them wearing Nike/adidas shoes, but the selection isn’t as variable as the World Cup game. I enjoyed being able to accumulate points and buy shoes for my custom players in the WC game and seeing that removed here was a disappointment.I’ll report more fun later.
