• Sports writer Rick Reilly says Trump cheats but doesn’t see it as cheating

    first_imgApril 5, 2019 /Sports News – National Sports writer Rick Reilly says Trump cheats but doesn’t see it as cheating Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLeon Neal/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) —  Many U.S. presidents have enjoyed playing golf, but as acclaimed sports writer Rick Reilly puts it in his new book, “No president has been as up to his clavicles in golf as Donald Trump.”“Trump doesn’t just play courses; he builds them, buys them, owns them, operates them, sues over them, lies about them, bullies with them, and brags about them,” Reilly writes in his new book, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.”Reilly said he played golf with Trump at one of his courses in preparation for a book Reilly published in 2004. As the pair spent the day together, Trump introduced Reilly as the publisher and owner of Sports Illustrated, despite the fact that he was neither, Reilly told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics podcast. Reilly started his sports writing career in 1979 and wrote for Sports Illustrated from 1985 to 2007, according to his website. He is also a member of the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame.And Trump is not the only president Reilly has played with. In 1995, he writes, he played with former President Bill Clinton.“He cheated in a kind of a different way. He would take — they came to call them Billigans,” Reilly told Karl and Klein. “And Clinton carried 24 clubs in his bag which is also cheating.”“But the difference is he wasn’t trying to win. He wasn’t trying to make you worse,” Reilly added.Despite questioning the fairness of the president’s methods, Reilly does not believe that Trump is a bad golfer“He is a good golfer, there’s no reason to lie,” said Reilly, who finds Trump’s reported 2.8 handicap questionable, to say the least.“I thought he was a 9 or 10,” Reilly told Klein and Karl. “He ain’t no three … If he’s a three, then the Queen is a pole vaulter. Cause there’s no way.”Reilly’s book alleges all manner of cheating, from fudging scorecards to kicking golf balls back onto the fairway. In fact, Reilly claims, the caddies at one golf club witnessed Trump kick the ball so much that they came up with a nickname for him: “Pele.”I think Donald, in his heart of hearts, believes that you’re gonna cheat him, too. So if it’s the same, if everybody’s cheating, he doesn’t see it as really cheating,” Reilly writes.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.center_img Beau Lundlast_img read more

  • Brazil’s Petrobras to purchase P-71 FPSO unit to develop Itapu field

    first_img BM-S-11 Consortium is operated by Petrobras with 65% stake. (Credit: D Thory from Pixabay) Brazil’s state-run oil firm Petróleo Brasileiro (Petrobras) has agreed to purchase the P-71 Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for $353m, and use it for the development of the Itapu field.The FPSO was to be used at Tupi field, formerly known as Lula, which is located in BM-S-11 block. The field is situated in the Santos Basin, 250km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.BM-S-11 Consortium is operated by Petrobras with 65% stake while other partners include Shell Brasil Petróleo (25%) and Petrogal Brasil (10%).In a press statement, Petrobras said: “After the auction of the transfer of rights surplus occurred in November 2019, the production rights of the Itapu field are now fully owned by Petrobras and the allocation of the FPSO P-71 in the field will allow the anticipation of its first oil in about one year.”P-71 platform is in final construction phaseThe 150,000 barrels/d P-71 platform, which is in the final construction phase at the Jurong Shipyard in the state of Espírito Santo, will be allocated in Itapu field.The consortium plans make a revised development plan for the Tupi field and submit it to Brazil’s oil and gas regulator ANP in 2021.The firm said in a statement: “This initiative seeks to implement complementary production development projects resilient to low oil prices, allowing to further increase the recovery factor of the field, which is currently the world’s largest producer in deep waters and whose accumulated production has already exceeded 2 billion boe.”The acquisition of P-71 platform forms part of the company’s strategy to focus on its activities on world-class assets in deep and ultra-deep waters.In September, Petrobras said it plans to spend $6bn to decommission 18 offshore platforms, subsea gas pipelines, and offshore wells. The 150,000 barrels/d P-71 platform will be allocated in Itapu field, instead of originally planned installation at Tupi fieldlast_img read more

  • Dead & Company Kicks Off Final Run Of Summer Tour At Wrigley Field [Photos/Videos]

    first_imgPhoto: Keith Griner Photo: Keith Griner Last night, Dead & Company took to Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, kicking off their final run of their summer tour. After two years on the road, this most recent tour has seen the group grow by leaps and bounds, with the second half of this past tour assuaging doubts held by some Deadheads about the six-piece Grateful Dead ensemble. Since starting their tour over Memorial Day Weekend at the end of May, over the past month or so, it’s been hard to deny that Dead & Company has been increasingly hitting their stride. John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti consistently shine each show, holding their own alongside Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzman, and Mickey Hart. Perhaps the second set of last night’s show can be read as the pinnacle of the tour thus far and as a true testament to what the group can do together, offering fans a truly stellar show ahead of their final show of the summer tonight.To open the show, Dead & Company came out with “The Music Never Stopped,” making for a triumphant way to kick off the show ahead of the ever-popular “Bertha” led by Mayer on vocals. With the first set only housing six numbers, there was plenty of room for the group to expand on the jams of each song, with the final combination of “Let It Grow” into an acoustic “Uncle John’s Band” being a highlight of the night in addition to a groovy rendition of “Sugaree” sung by Mayer. The group’s rendition of “Uncle John’s Band” ended the first set, and up until its final minute, showed the group dialed in on their acoustics. Hilariously true to the song’s final lyrics “How does the song go?”, as the song came to its close, “Uncle John’s Band” seemingly fell apart for its a capella close — Bob Weir stepped up to the mic and stated “We’ll be back in a little bit, and maybe we’ll have figured it out by then,” to end the set on an abrupt note.Music Never Stopped [Starts around 18:30]Figure it out they did for the second set, with the final set of night one at Wrigley offering a near perfect setlist and truly showing off what Dead & Company is capable as a unit. “Shakedown Street” was slinky and tight, “Dark Star” and “St. Stephen” were both appropriately exploited as the jam vehicles they are, and the final “China Doll” of the tour only reiterated the musicianship of Oteil Burbridge and how much we love it when they let the bassist sing. Coming out of the classic “Terrapin Station,” Dead & Company gave “Uncle John’s Band” another shot for its reprise, with the second rendition of the song faring decidedly better the second time around. After “Drums” — which saw Burbridge again join the percussionists as has been a trend throughout the tour — and “Space,” the group eventually crawled into “Standing On The Moon,” ending the non-stop string of songs that took up the majority of the second set. With the final combination of “Help on the Way,” “Slipknot!”, and “Franklin’s Tower,” the group accelerated to the close of the set, later coming out with a celebratory encore of “Ripple” and “U.S. Blues” to close the show.Shakedown Street [Starts around 15:00]You can check out the setlist from last night’s Dead & Company performance below.

  • Harvard reaches tentative agreement with graduate student union

    first_imgAfter months of negotiations, Harvard University and the leadership of the Harvard Graduate Student Union United Auto Workers (HGSU-UAW) representing more than 4,000 members, have agreed to the terms of a one-year contract that embraces a wide range of benefits and protections for graduate and undergraduate employees in all Schools, Provost Alan M. Garber said in an email to University faculty on Monday.The tentative accord, which still requires ratification by the union membership, represents nearly two years of talks between University officials and the union’s bargaining committee to find a workable contract while advancing Harvard’s mission of teaching, learning, and scholarship, and furthering academic freedom.“Our students are the heart of our institution, and we have approached these negotiations with their best interests in mind,” wrote Garber. “With the Union, we have reached a tentative agreement that we feel appropriately addresses the employment-related concerns of our student workers, while also ensuring the integrity of the University’s research and teaching mission. “For the fiscal year beginning in July, the proposal guarantees a 2.8 percent compensation increase for research assistants and teaching fellows, along with a minimum hourly pay rate of $16 for nonsalaried student workers and $17 for hourly instructional workers. It also provides nearly $1 million in additional financial assistance for costs associated with health and dental insurance, childcare, and emergency situations.Throughout the negotiation process, the question of how student-worker harassment and discrimination allegations should be handled was a key area of difference. The proposed contract features a range of provisions to address those concerns, including seats for HGSU-UAW representatives on the existing Title IX Policy Review Committee that includes faculty, staff, and students from across the University; seats for HGSU-UAW representatives on two planned committees that will make recommendations on University policies and procedures for addressing forms of discrimination and misconduct that fall outside federal Title IX regulations; and protections against retaliation for pursuing discrimination claims.Graduate students at Harvard launched a union organizing campaign in 2015. The following year, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that graduate students at Columbia University could unionize, opening the doors for similar efforts at private colleges and universities across the U.S. Harvard graduate students voted in favor of unionizing in April 2018 and talks with the University began six months later, on Oct. 15. In December 2019, with negotiations at an impasse, HGSU members went on strike, picketing Harvard Yard and the Longwood Campus. The University engaged a federal mediator in January 2020 to help the sides reach an agreement.On Tuesday, HGSU’s bargaining committee posted a message on the union’s site announcing it had reached a tentative accord and unanimously supporting ratification. If approved by the union, the contract will be in effect through June 30, 2021.last_img read more

  • Scholar analyzes Latin American constitutions

    first_imgDebates regarding the Constitution are commonplace in America, and not just in the United States. In a lecture Thursday titled “The Politics of Constitutional Change in Latin America,” Gabriel L. Negretto, associate professor of political studies at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económica (CIDE) in Mexico City, said constitutional discussions occupy a central place in Latin American politics.Whereas constitutional disputes in the United States typically concern interpretation, debates in Latin America have largely focused on substantive reform and in some cases, on complete replacement of the constitution in question. Negretto said he developed a two-level theory that attributes constitutional reforms both to ‘efficiency considerations,’ which legitimize the call for reform, and ‘partisan considerations,’ which influence the shape of a specific reform.“I argue … that the relative impact of partisan interests and power resources varies across cases, across individual cases, according to two factors,” Negretto said. “One is the triggering event, and the other is the level of electoral uncertainty.”Negretto said any explanation of reform necessitates an understanding of both problems inciting reform and short-term interests of actors in a setting of limited power resources.Negretto drew original inspiration to explore constitutional changes in Latin America from the rate at which these changes occurred, he said.“I realized that constitutional change [in Latin America] was much more frequent than you would expect based on the idea of the constitutional moment being an extraordinary political event,” he said. “Since Independence up to 2009, there have been 194 constitutions in Latin America.”Negretto said these observations led him to question the common assertion that constitutions are made infrequently and only in very particular circumstances.  He said he was “increasingly skeptical” of this idea, and his dissatisfaction prompted him to write his recent book, Making Constitutions: Presidents, Parties, and Institutional Choice in Latin America.Negretto said he tested the theory behind his book through the use of statistical analysis to examine 67 instances of constitutional reform.  He said he also conducted four case studies — two of reforms in Argentina, and reforms in Columbia and Ecuador.He said he found a significant difference in conditions of reform in which the reform coalition comprised only those of the president’s party, as opposed to coalitions that represented cross-party interests.  An analysis of party interests and power resources insufficiently explains reform during moments of high levels of electoral uncertainty as well as in instances of institutional crisis.Negretto concluded the lecture with a reflection on the advantages and disadvantages of Latin American government and addressed a question regarding the noteworthy differences between constitutional politics in the United States, where lawmakers have made relatively few changes to the Constitution, and in Latin America, where changes come every few years.“When you have a mature constitutional system, formal rules do not matter much,” he said. “Ironically, formal institutions become more important in unstable constitutional countries.”Tags: Constitutions, latin america, political sciencelast_img read more

  • Odds & Ends: Benjamin Walker Lands Shrink Role & More

    first_imgHere’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Benjamin Walker Lands (Another) Dark ComedyBenjamin Walker, who is rumored to return to Broadway soon in American Psycho, has been tapped to lead the upcoming dark comedy Look Away, according to The Wrap. As previously reported, the film will also star Matthew Broderick, Chloë Sevigny and Shannon Tarbet. The movie follows a woman, played by Tarbet, who suffers with selective blindness. Walker will play her psychiatrist Farmer Smithson, who has a mild form of Asperger’s. Production for the film began earlier this month.Russell Tovey & Douglas Hodge Join The Night ManagerBroadway alum and Looking star Russell Tovey and Tony winner Douglas Hodge have boarded BBC One and AMC’s The Night Manager, reports Variety. The miniseries, based on the 1993 novel of the same name by John le Carré, will star Tom Hiddlsteon, Olivie Colman, Hugh Laurie, Elixabeth Debicki and Tom Hollander. It is set to air next year and follows a hotel manager who is enlisted to help an intelligence agency take down an international arms trade. So, given the subject matter, we suspect Hodge won’t be singing “I Am What I Am” in drag in this one.A Kinky Father’s Day GiftIn honor of Father’s Day, take a listen to Tony and Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper performing the original 2009 demo of “I’m Not My Father’s Son” from Kinky Boots. The tune was one of the first that she penned for the score. It may not be the most appropriate message for a day honoring fatherhood, but it’s still poignant. And, let’s be real. Red drag queen boots make the perfect Father’s Day gift. So much better than a tie or mug. Benjamin Walker Star Filescenter_img View Commentslast_img read more

  • Constructing the Haitian National Police

    first_imgBy Dialogo July 02, 2013 As this island nation edges toward stability, neatly uniformed Haitian National Police (HNP) officers can be seen directing traffic, conducting patrols and inspecting vehicles. The HNP is everywhere, from the up-and-coming community of Delmas to the pacified former slum of Cité Soleil, and throughout the camps scattered across Port-au-Prince. The 10,000-strong force conducts 285 daily patrols with support from 2,600 United Nations Police (UNPol). Haitians are noticing the increased presence of their civilian security force. Considering their low numbers for a population of 9 million, HNP achievements in reducing kidnappings, halting drug trafficking and building confidence with the populace bodes well for the prospect of security provided wholly by Haitians. Mayor Leonardo Martinez of Camp Tabrreissa, a displaced persons camp of some 554 families, strongly defends the HNP from criticism by community members who complain that they never see Haitian officials. “There is a Haitian patrol here every day, two times a day, three times a day,” he told Diálogo. While admitting the HNP still lacks the equipment and manpower to run security in Haiti without U.N. help, he praised the institution for its role in keeping Camp Tabrreissa safe. Inspector General Paul Thómas, chief of staff of the HNP director general, told Diálogo the primary challenges of the HNP today are lack of equipment and trained officers. Fifty-eight stations were damaged or destroyed in the 2010 earthquake, creating enormous setbacks for the nascent force. Joint efforts between HNP and UNPol are underway to rebuild the stations. But HNP officers take the lead role in tactical operations, from roadside checkpoints to community patrols. Only the Haitian officers have the power to arrest and detain, while UNPol provides support. “United Nations police participate in continual training of our agents, sharing their experiences and assisting with tactics that are bringing significant support to our logistical plan,” said Thómas. The MINUSTAH UNPol force has been in Haiti since 2004, with a mission to support and develop the HNP. Presently, 45 countries make up UNPol. From the region, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, El Salvador, Uruguay and Colombia work hand in hand with the HNP. Despite having some of the lowest crime rates in the Caribbean, crime in Haiti is all too often highlighted in international headlines. In the past decade, kidnapping became an epidemic on the island. Drug traffickers also used Haiti’s more than 1,056 miles of coastline as a strategic transit point for narcotics shipping, taking advantage of the nation’s lack of air and sea assets. Colombian Major Arlex Escobar was one of the first two UNPol officers from his country in 2006. He has returned for another tour, working closely with the HNP to train officers in counternarcotics and anti-kidnapping techniques. In 2012, Colombia signed a bilateral agreement with Haiti to help train police officers. The strategic alliance, backed with funding from the narcotics affairs section of the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince, aims to train 200 female Haitian police officers by 2016. The first 10 officers arrived in Colombia in January 2013. “We have realized that the Latin American models are very similar to our reality, to our daily life,” said Inspector General Jean-Yonel Trécile, the HNP’s international liaison. “It’s for this reason that we have focused on the police forces of Latin America, above all Colombia and Chile.” Inspector General Thómas added that the high-quality training abroad is already permeating the police force as officers return and share the tactics they learned. Inspector Charles Odelet, who attended the police academy in Chile for a year and conducted training in Colombia, told Diálogo about how training in human rights will help change a history tainted by instances of police abuse. Jaime Vigil, a senior planning officer with UNPol and retired Salvadoran police officer, has been working with the HNP for more than six years. Vigil helped to implement the U.N.-developed Haitian National Police Reform Plan of 2006-2011, and was involved in writing the current HNP Development Plan 2012-2016 with Haitian authorities and U.N. support. Vigil said that while great progress was made in the first plan, a second plan was necessary in light of setbacks such as political turmoil in 2008 and the 2010 earthquake. The 2012 HNP plan, which was approved by the Board of Governors of the National Police, a group led by the Haitian Prime Minister, details very specific objectives and timelines to position the HNP to take over security in Haiti by 2016. “When I arrived… the police [were] very criticized, with a lack of processes and a lack of training,” Vigil said. “In six and a half years there is a complete change in attitude. There’s a much stronger leadership with greater willingness to make things happen.” HNP’s added challenges include the additional security roles it takes on in a country without Armed Forces, such as oversight of the Coast Guard, prison guard, firefighters and border control. Vigil also said that Haiti has half the officers it needs to provide security. One of the principal goals of the UNPol and international support today is to get Haiti to the numbers it needs for self-policing. Haiti’s 10,181 police officers equates to 1.02 police per 1,000 inhabitants, a third of what most countries in the world have and one-half of the Caribbean average. The goal is to have 15,000 police officers by 2016, which would increase the ratio to 1.36 per 1,000, doubling that of 2006, when the first police reform plan began. The HNP is also working for a more equal countrywide distribution and are projected to take over policing of two departments in 2013, with MINUSTAH military withdrawing from further departments in 2014. HNP Inspector General Trécile told Diálogo there are growing signs of confidence in the National Police. “Before they believed — or, maybe it was the truth — that when someone went to the police to give information, the police themselves were the criminals,” he said. “Now, this perception almost doesn’t exist. The people have confidence in us because we have taken steps to rid our ranks of bad elements.” Inspector General Thómas agreed that the HNP has made significant strides, but still has a long way to go, including improving insurance for families of officers injured or killed in the line of duty. Ultimately, Vigil said the goal for transitioning security to Haitian control without UNPol is to create close working relationships with regional security groups such as Ameripol, which is based in Bogotá, and other Caribbean and Central American police forces. Vigil said another test of the staying power of the police will be remaining non-politicized and committed to institutional development. It’s a good thing they are concerned about such a vulnerable population.last_img read more

  • Cultural ties enable Hawaii credit unions to thrive

    first_img 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Andrew Rosen Hawaii State Federal Credit Union is one of Hawaii’s largest credit unions, serving more than 96,000 members. Rosen became President & CEO of Hawaii State FCU in 2012 … Web: https://www.hawaiistatefcu.com Details It may come as no surprise that the cooperative structure and “people helping people” philosophy of credit unions thrive in the state of Hawaii, where the Aloha Spirit is not just a saying, but a way of life.Hawaii has long embraced credit unions, and their success continues to grow. In 2016, credit unions controlled 18 percent of deposits in Hawaii, compared to 8.7 percent nationally. Membership increased by 1 percent last year to nearly 878,000 in 2017. In a state of 1.429 million residents, more than 61.4 percent are served by credit unions.The success of credit unions is uniquely tied to the rise of two sweet crops that were once essential to Hawaii’s economy. Long before Hawaii became a state, both pineapple and sugarcane became booming industries throughout the islands. In the early 1900s, laborers from Japan, China, Korea, the Philippines, and many other countries came to work in the fields.Plantation workers had no credit and minimal income, so banks were quick to deny them loans. Groups of friends and neighbors formed financial co-ops based on the Japanese money-pooling concept of “tanomoshi.” Tanomoshi was an informal, word-of-mouth tradition in which plantation workers would meet monthly to contribute a predetermined amount. Members would take turns receiving their payout, until everyone had a chance to benefit. While the first tanomoshi groups were bound by a shared ethnicity or culture, they soon evolved into circles of individuals that had common jobs or interests. From those groups, credit unions were born.In 1936, a group of government employees chartered the first credit union on Oahu, the Hawaii Territorial Employees FCU. Today, we are known as the Hawaii State Federal Credit Union, serving government workers, select employer groups and their families.Credit unions continue to operate in the islands on the basis of helping every member succeed financially. Members, even those of modest means, know they can count on credit unions to be there for them — to offer fair rates, minimal fees and resources that help them reach their financial dreams.last_img read more
