first_imgProposals by the Legal Services Board on statutory guidance for training have been condemned by the City of London Law Society (CLLS) as ‘deeply flawed’ with the body calling for its paper to be ‘withdrawn’.In September the LSB published a consultation paper: Increasing flexibility in legal education and training, which outlined statutory guidance for the implementation of the Legal Education and Training Review.The super-regulator stated there was no evidence of oversupply of lawyers in the market and proposed introducing ‘fewer restrictions to the way that people are able to qualify’.In its consultation response, the CLLS criticised the LSB for trying to dictate what the market needs.‘We think the general proposition is that it is for the market to decide on what it needs so regulation should seek neither to expand nor to restrict the size of the profession,’ it said.‘Our industry is too big and too important to be the subject of regulation based on what we see as flawed thinking. This draft guidance cannot stand.’The CLLS said it had no difficulty with multiple routes to qualification. ‘However, we think that it is critical that frontline regulators assess each one to ensure that it is capable of working,’ it said.‘We do not accept that there needs to be statutory guidance. If there is to be guidance it has to be well thought out, based on evidence. We would have thought the current consultation paper should be withdrawn.’The consultation closed on 11 December 2013.last_img read more

first_imgLindani Mjezu, a young South African entrepreneur has launched the township’s first television mobile station.Eyam Nawe TV channel, available on the web and mobile phones, has steadily garnered a network of followers in Tembisa Township and opened the door for many to showcase their broadcasting skills.CGTN’s Julie Scheier met with Mjeru and filled this report.With the logo of his internet TV station in the background, Lindani Mjezu energetically casts young talent from Tembisa Township.Eyam Nawe TV – tells local stories by local talent.“We have different content on Eyam Nawe Tv such as movies, drama, anything which affects young people and South Africans. Our main aim and objective is to educate everyone and give them hope. Even those who are HIV and have lost hope, we want to give them a platform and educate everyone about every content that we are doing.” Mjezu said.Mjezu, an actor and director by profession saw a gap in the market and a need to create a platform for young rising stars.“Here in South Africa we have few chances for young people especially who are unknown to make it through the mainstream so this mobile tv channel is giving a platform for everyone.” He noted.And its here where Mjeru carries out the castings for his mobile television and these youngsters truly believe that it can make a difference in their careers.“Yes its going to change my life, just being on a mobile TV, everyone will be watching so it will open many opportunities for me.  In SA it is so difficult to get a job, especially if you come from the township because you don’t know where to start.” Nokubonga Makhathini , a model said.Many are seizing the chance to leap into cyberspace stardom. And the exposure clearly pays off.“Now I am starting to get bookings because of Eyam Nawe TV, and what’s good about it is Lindani doesn’t ask for qualifications you don’t need to have experience, even if you don’t know how to act he teaches you, so for me he is creating a lot of employment for the youth out there. And I am happy to be a part of that.” Thokozani Mnguni an actor said.A smartphone – a mobile app – and real stories is what Mjezu is betting on.“The viewership from TV channels is decreasing day by day because everyone now has a smartphone and the advantage for Eyam Nawe and to be part of the International Mobile Channel, is we are increasing a lot of viewership. Eyam Nawe exists, whether you are in London or in Africa we are broadcasting Live.” Mjeru said.Mjezu’s Project is still in its infancy but it wants to be the immediate and most popular way to broadcast what’s happening in Tembisa Township.last_img read more

first_img Related TopicsCleveland StateDemonte FlanniganGary Waters CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Cavaliers are about to embark on another run at an NBA Championship, and the Tribe is one win away from going to the World Series. What does that mean for Cleveland State Basketball? Senior forward Demonte Flannigan and head coach Gary Waters spoke highly of the City of Cleveland and it’s NBA Team. Flannigan now the only senior on the team said he draws inspiration for his new leadership role from LeBron James and his work ethic. Flannigan spoke on improving his level of consistency;“Me and my teammates put a big emphasis on getting in the gym almost everyday, countless hours, and doing things over and over again till it just comes natural.” Waters also put an emphasis on being more consistent with one thing in particular; limiting turnovers. The Vikings were one of the worst teams in NCAA Division 1 basketball in assist to turnover ratio, and Waters said that his main concerns were improving their man-on-man defense, the transition game, and offensive execution. Part of the plan is to not put as much pressure on only one or two players, but spreading the pressure amongst the team and playing “freer.” How he intends to do that is simply get these players to play together and compliment each other on the court through internal, and positional completion. Waters even stressed the importance of the City being a recruiting tool for years to come. And with another youthful roster in terms of not playing with each other, according to Waters, the head ball coach expects big improvements from second year players such as Rob Edwards, Jibri Blount to compliment the other players new and old. Waters was also able to spend time with Cleveland Cavalier’s Head Coach Tyron Lue and was able to learn from Lue as well. Waters and Lue spoke a great deal of the change in pace and pacing of the game when Lue became head coach; and stated; “…pacing is not always about tempo, it has a lot to do with spacing.” Waters said he was able to learn from that statement and intends to implement somewhat of a similar strategy when on offense and in transition. All in all, Coach Waters by the end of the day left us with one statement;“I like my team.” The Vikings first game is an exhibition game, which has been moved to Monday the 7th of November against Tiffin at 7:00 PM ET at home. Danny Simpson is a 4 year graduate from John Carroll University in Cleveland with a BA in Communications and Theatre Arts where he specialized in broadcast and theatre production. Graduated from Aurora High School, Danny has lived in North East Ohio all his life and love Cleveland Sports. Currently enrolled at The Ohio Center for Broadcasting in the Sports emphasis program, Danny hopes to make a name for himself somewhere for some professional or collegiate sports organization.center_img Danny Simpsonlast_img read more

first_imgPesawat Airbus A319 yang dioperasikan Delta Airlines rusak berat akibat dihantam badai es. Foto: The Drive Pesawat Airbus A319 yang dioperasikan Delta Airlines belum lama ini dikabarkan mendarat darurat. Hal itu dikarenakan pesawat dengan nomor penerbangan 1076 itu mendapat serangan badai yang membawa serta es (hujan es) secara tiba-tiba.Baca juga: Dilanda Hujan Badai, Pesawat British Airways Alami Kebocoran di Ruang Kabin!Padahal, beberapa waktu sebelum insiden itu terjadi, radar cuaca menunjukkan awan di sekitar pesawat dan airways Delta 1076 cukup bersahabat. Washington Post melaporkan, kronologi insiden Delta Airlines itu bermula saat pesawat lepas landas dari Bandara Internasional Palm Beach, Florida, Amerika Serikat (AS) pada pukul 4.03 sore. Pesawat dijadwalkan tiba di Bandara LaGuardia New York pada pukul 6.31 malam.Dalam perjalanan, sebetulnya, radar cuaca telah mendeteksi adanya badai di sekitaran New Jersey yang notabene bertetangga dengan Kota New York. Badai di sekitaran langit New Jersey itu berada di ketinggian 40 ribu kaki dan membentuk seperti sebuah garis panjang yang terputus di tengahnya. Di bagian tengah itulah pesawat Delta melintas.Pada pukul 6 sore lebih sedikit, cuaca secara drastis berubah. Dari semula radar memprediksi A319 Delta Airlines hanya akan menghadapi hujan dan petir dengan internsitas ringan, mendadak mendapat terjangan angin kencang dengan kecepatan 59 mph disertai hujan es sebesar 1,-1,5 inci, lebih dari cukup untuk merusak pesawat. Terjangan angin dari badai Pulse itu awalnya memang berada di langit Kota New York, sebelum akhirnya minggat ke langit Atlantik bagian tengah.Beberapa saat berselang pasca melewati badai, pesawat Delta Airlines sedang berada di ketinggian sekitar 20-21 ribu kaki dan tengah melaju di kecepatan 415 mph melaporkan adanya kerusakan pada nose radome (moncong pesawat), radome seal, flight navigation system, serta airborne weather radar.Lebih lanjut, juru bicara Delta Airlines mengungkap, badai disertai hujan es tambahan dalam perjalanan menuju Bandara Internasional John F. Kennedy (JFK) -untuk melakukan pendaratan darurat- juga telah merusakan komponen lainnya di sepanjang sayap dan ekor.Baca juga: Pernah Dengar “Rain Gutter” di Pesawat?

Meski tak ada korban jiwa maupun luka –karena pesawat mendarat dengan mulus- Administrasi Penerbangan Federal AS (FAA) dikabarkan telah melakukan penyelidikan.Sebetulnya, sebelum mendapat izin produksi, pesawat lebih dahulu melewati serangkaian tes, termasuk test crash, seperti menabrak burung, serta tersambar petir. Dalam model pengetesan di fasilitas test crash, pesawat bisa melalui itu dengan baik. Namun, tidak demikian ketika hujan es sebesar 1-1,5 inci menyerang. Lagi pula, terjangan hujan es disebut sulit ditiru saat pesawat diuji.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedIni Fakta yang Mungkin Belum Anda Ketahui dari Delta Airlines25/10/2018In “Featured”Pasca Hard Landing, Muncul ‘Kerutan’ di Bodi Boeing 757-200 Delta Airlines23/08/2019In “Darat”Insiden di Aberdeen Belanda, Pesawat Embraer 145 ‘Jepit’ Bombardier Q40019/06/2020In “Bandara”last_img read more

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Donlin Gold Project is a large proposed open pit gold mine about 270 miles west of Anchorage which was started in 2012. After that the mining operation to remove approximately 34 million ounces of gold suspected to be in the region will operate for around 27 years and employ 900 people. Parkan: “And we expect to have a draft out for public comment sometime around the end of 2015.” If approved, the project is slated to take between 3 or 4 years to construct which will require 3,000 employees. Along with the mine, a proposed 14 inch steel natural gas underground pipeline will be constructed to the project.center_img Kurt Parkan with the Project said currently they are two and a half years into working through the permits needed and the Environmental Impact Statement is being worked on by the Army Corp of Engineers and partners. Parkan: “Hooking into the Beluga Field and running to the project to provide power for the project site. The capacity of the pipeline is about double of what we’re going to need to provide natural gas to operate our facility. The pipe itself will be what’s called an open access pipeline which means any entity which has an interest in bringing natural gas through the pipeline themselves for their use is able to do that.” Critics worry about what will happen when operations are done and Donlin has closed up shop but Parkan said they plan to restore the area.last_img read more

That also means Elam, who came to UK last summer at 390-plus pounds, must continue to improve his conditioning. He played about 50 snaps at Mississippi State, a career high.“I wasn’t used to that, but I’ve just been practicing and training harder for that, because I know what it takes now,” said Elam, who believes he’s also playing his way into better shape. “You can do all this running and conditioning stuff, but it’s way different than being on the field and that conditioning, just play by play. One or two plays could feel like 50 sprints because you’re putting so much into it.”All things considered, the coaches were pleased with how Elam held up under the increased workload. They’re focusing on the positives.Stoops and Co. know the combination of his recruiting hype and the fact that he plays a position casual observers don’t really understand (and rarely yields gaudy stats) equals impossible expectations.“He did what I asked of him in the run game,” Brumbaugh said. “Of course we’ve got to work on the pass rush and we all talk about that and know, (but) for a man who’s that big and the things he does and he plays 50-something snaps in the ball game, I took my hat off to him.”AD: Kentucky, Stoops happy togetherElam, who has 15 tackles this season, sets lofty goals for himself and draws inspiration from defensive tackle C.J. Johnson, who like Elam had just 10 tackles all last season. When starter Regie Meant went down with an injury, Johnson seized the opportunity, racking up 45 tackles in the last five games.So Elam’s aspirations “might be crazy, but C.J. probably thought that, too, until he got those,” he said. “When you’re on the bench or just getting a few snaps, you can’t really get a feel for it unless you’re actually out there doing it.”Now Elam is, and he believes on-the-job training will help his college career take off.“I just had high expectations for my first starting game, but overall it wasn’t bad,” he said. “I got more serious because I know with Melvin out, my team wanted me to step up. So that’s something I definitely gotta do, because at the end of the day, I feel like I’m a player and I want to make plays.”Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361. Email him at ktucker@courier-journal.com. Coach Mark Stoops, defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot and line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh have all praised Elam for his run defense last week, while acknowledging that pass rush is not his strength. Mississippi State threw the ball 36 times for 382 yards and quarterback Dak Prescott was rarely under pressure.“It hurts us at times,” Stoops said, “but we’re asking Matt to be what he is, and that’s a big nose guard that can play the run, and we actually did some decent things in run defense.”Although the dual-threat Prescott also ran for 117 yards, the Bulldogs’ running backs combined for just 70 yards on 19 carries, an average of 3.7 yards per rush. Elam had a lot to do with that, coaches said, by occupying space and redirecting the backs toward his teammates to take them down.Matthews continuing to impress for UKThe staff made sure a dejected Elam saw that on film this week.“As you can tell, I’m not really a pass rusher. I mean, that’s not really why Coach Stoops brought me here. I just kind of feel bad because I feel I could’ve done more, so I took it harder than what it really was,” Elam said, but the pep talk helped. “Coach Stoops and Coach Brumbaugh, they talk about it, like, in the league (NFL), I’m in there first and second down. You ain’t gonna be there on third down; they’re gonna take you off the field, put in a fast guy.“But say on first and second down they do pass, I definitely want to push the pocket, which I know I can do, so that’s definitely something they’re pushing me to do.”Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Photo by Mike WeaverLEXINGTON, Ky. – Matt Elam’s first career start at Kentucky did not unfold as he imagined. Mississippi State rolled up 586 yards of total offense and routed the Wildcats 42-16 in Starkville, Miss., last Saturday night and Elam, stepping in for injured senior Melvin Lewis at nose guard, was roundly ripped by fans for his performance.“It wasn’t what I wanted,” Elam said. “I was really down after the game, just because of the loss that we took. I was like, ‘Man, that was a whooppin’.’ And we really haven’t been in a whoopin’ like that this year.”Five-star Elam’s time arrives for UK footballElam, a sophomore from Elizabethtown with just 10 career tackles coming into this season, also hadn’t been under the microscope like that before. The 6-foot-7, 360-pound former five-star recruit – who chose UK over powerhouse Alabama – did not wow anyone with his one tackle against the Bulldogs.“All you see is a big guy in the middle and you’re like, ‘Oh, he’s gonna stop everything.’ But that’s not the case,” Elam said. “And say I have to outside loop to the right and the ball hits right beside me, people are like, ‘Oh, you missed that play,’ or, ‘You suck, you’re horrible.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, you just don’t understand the concept of football, just what I need to do.’ “Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.
