BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain’s scheduled departure from the European Union (all times local):10:40 a.m.The Bank of England has warned that “significant market volatility” is likely if Britain crashes out of the European Union on March 29 without a deal.Minutes of the recent meeting of the bank’s Financial Policy Committee showed officials warning that in a “disorderly Brexit,” a range of financial assets, including the pound and stocks, “would be expected to adjust sharply, tightening financial conditions for U.K. households and businesses.”They said that EU banks and insurance companies could also immediately face tougher requirements on their holdings of U.K. debts, which would reduce demand for U.K. assets.However, the committee said markets have “proved able to function effectively through volatile periods” and that the U.K.’s core banking system is strong enough to withstand the economic shock of a disorderly Brexit___10:30 a.m.A senior British government minister insists that Brexit talks with the European Union are making progress, as negotiators meet in Brussels seeking a way to break the logjam.Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says “the signals we are getting are relatively positive.”EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier is meeting U.K. Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay and Attorney General Geoffrey Cox on Tuesday, as Britain seeks changes to a Brexit deal that has been rejected by U.K. lawmakers.Their objections centre on a provision to guarantee there are no barriers along the currently invisible Irish border. Britain wants reassurances the mechanism will be temporary.EU leaders insist that the legally binding withdrawal agreement can’t be reopened. But Hunt told the BBC that Britain is “prepared to be flexible” about how changes are achieved.The Associated Press read more

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A medical supply company’s challenge to Arkansas’ three-drug execution protocol remains alive, though the state doesn’t have enough drugs to put any inmate to death after four men died by lethal injection in April.State lawyers argued unsuccessfully in the Pulaski County Courthouse on Wednesday that Arkansas was immune from a lawsuit brought by McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc., which doesn’t want Arkansas to use its vecuronium bromide in executions and believes state officials purchased it last year under false pretenses. The company fears damage to its reputation and its bottom line if people believe its life-saving drugs are being used to kill.“McKesson made a mistake but cannot unwind the transaction,” senior assistant attorney general Jennifer L. Merritt argued. Suing the state was not a solution, she said.“McKesson never asked what Arkansas would do with it,” she said.The supply company initially raised its arguments in April, saying it learned too late that the Arkansas Department of Correction intended to use its product during an aggressive series of executions that month. Pulaski County Circuit Judge Alice Gray granted a preliminary injunction halting its use, but the state Supreme Court dissolved the ruling. Arkansas subsequently executed four men, using McKesson’s paralytic lethal-injection drug as the second step of a three-drug process.The case went before Gray again Wednesday so Gray could take up issues not yet pending before the state Supreme Court, including a request that the case be moved to a more rural county. Two judges seated at Little Rock had issued rulings favouring McKesson in April.“Defendants simply like their chances elsewhere,” McKesson lawyer Michael B. Heister said in court documents filed ahead of Wednesday’s court session.Grey didn’t rule on that request, but she did reject McKesson’s request to put the case on hold while the state Supreme Court considers Arkansas’ appeal of Gray’s initial injunction.The office of Attorney General Leslie Rutledge disagreed with Gray’s ruling on the dismissal request.“The Attorney General respectfully thinks the circuit court should have dismissed these meritless claims and plans to appeal the decision,” spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.Arkansas in April conducted its first executions since 2005. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson had set a particularly aggressive plan — scheduling eight executions in an 11-day period — because another of the state’s execution drugs was expiring April 30. Stays and clemency rulings spared four of the men’s lives, at least temporarily.Arkansas prison officials say they have not yet replaced its supply of the sedative midazolam, leaving the state unable to execute any of the more than two dozen inmates on death row. Its vecuronium bromide expires March 1 and its potassium chloride, which stops the heart, expires Aug. 31, 2018.In the April hearing, a state prison official, Deputy Director Rory Griffin, testified that he deliberately ordered the vecuronium bromide from McKesson in a way that there wouldn’t be a paper trail, relying on phone calls and text messages.Griffin said he did not keep records of his texts, but McKesson salesman Tim Jenkins said he did — and the messages from his phone included no mention that the drug would be used to put inmates to death. Execution drug challenge survives, but Arkansas lacks doses by Kelly P.

Ohio State forward Mason Jobst holds off a Wisconsin forward as he crashes into senior goaltender Matt Tomkins during a Big Ten tournament semifinal game at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. OSU lost 2-1. Credit: Ohio State AthleticsAfter an emotional season sweep against rival Michigan and with a trip to No. 2 Notre Dame on the horizon, Ohio State head coach Steve Rohlik knows not to look past a team that is currently sitting at the bottom of the Big Ten standings.No. 5 Ohio State (17-5-4, 10-5-1-0 Big Ten) has the chance to extend its home winning streak to seven games when it hosts Michigan State (9-16-1, 3-12-1-1 Big Ten) for a weekend series on Friday and Saturday. “They can beat anybody. To me, that puts you exactly where you need to be and that means focus, be ready to go and put the time in during practice. That’s what we’re doing,” Rohlik said. “Notre Dame, that doesn’t even cross my mind. Michigan State, Friday night, here at home, crosses my mind because we got to be at our best.”Ohio State finished a season sweep of No. 20 Michigan for the first time since the 1985-86 season and have lost one game in its past 10 matchups. Michigan State limps into Columbus with seven losses in its last eight games, two of those defeats coming at the hands of the Buckeyes in East Lansing, Michigan in early January. “Obviously, they are at the bottom of the standings, but as you’ve seen in this league over and over, everyone can beat everyone on any given night,” junior forward Mason Jobst said. “They played us really tough the last couple of games when we were up there. They’ve got some great young players and I expect them to come at us really hard.”Michigan State has some offensive weapons. Sophomore forward Taro Hirose leads the team with 21 assists and 30 points. The Spartans also have freshman forward Mitchell Lewandowski, who leads them with 15 goals. The problem with the Spartans is they can’t seem to keep the puck out of their own net. Sophomore goaltender John Lethemon has struggled this year, posting a .905 save percentage and a 2.75 goals against average.    Since missing the Penn State game on Jan. 13 with a lower-body injury, Jobst has elevated his play to a new level, with three goals and assists apiece in three games since returning from injury.“I just think the bigger the game, the bigger the player,” Rohlik said.“When it comes down to games like this every weekend, your best players have to be your best players, and he’s certainly one of those guys. “He plays like that because he practices as well as he does. He brings it every day; he never cheats the company. Those are the guys that are going to have success.”Ohio State has leaned on its nation-leading penalty kill, which sits at 90.8 percent on the season. Redshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo, who earned Big Ten First Star of the Week last week, made 60 saves on 63 shots, good for a .952 save percentage and a 1.50 goals against average.“Calm, cool, collective. Just kind of gives us that confidence. He’s done the job like that all year,” Rohlik said. “When you have a little bit of that swagger, it certainly helps your penalty kill. He is your best penalty killer.” Another core aspect to a nation-leading penalty kill is the willingness to block shots, which Jobst exemplified when he blocked blocking multiple shots on a 5-on-3 penalty kill in the final moments last weekend to seal the season sweep against Michigan.  “It hurts, but I think once you see other guys doing it, you’re willing to buy in,” Jobst said. “Our defense has done a great job all year. Once you see those guys do it, you want to go out there and do it for them as well.”Puck drop for the weekend series against the Spartans will be at 7 p.m. both Friday and Saturday at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Axel Witsel Im ready to be a leader

I’m 29 years old, I’m one of the oldest in the squad. We have a very talented group, but one which is very young,” said Witsel, according to the Bundesliga.“Piszczek is 33. Reus, Götze and me, we’re 29. Bürki is 28. The rest are between 18 and 26. Quite frankly, I was surprised when I arrived.“I started to speak to some of them, I asked them their age, and to be at Dortmund already at 19, 20 years old, it’s brilliant.”?

I didn’t hesitate as soon as I got the chance to join Dortmund,” he said.“I don’t regret my time in China at all. I could have said to myself that I would stay there after the World Cup.“I could have signed a new contract there, I didn’t. After what we experienced at the World Cup, it was clear in my head: I absolutely wanted to return to Europe, but not just anywhere.“I had the ambition of going to a top club. Dortmund came along, I didn’t hesitate. To play in full stadiums, the atmosphere, the emotion…I’d missed the top level.”last_img read more

Dont let off the steam

It’s one technique of cooking that completely brings out the flavour of a dish. Which explains why clay pot cooking isn’t limited to just one region on the map. Dating back to ancient Roman times, clay pot cooking is popular in Europe, Africa, southeast and east Asia. In India, everyone from Tamilians to Malayalis, Awadhis, Punjabis and Kashmiris, they all have their own form of the cooking technique. Typically used in the villages, this is done using traditional clay pots called Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’chattis to cook on slow fire for a few hours. The food inside cooks in its own juices. The juices are sealed inside the pot till the time it is completely dry and therefore, cooked! Food cooked in a clay pot is not just flavourful, but it is also low fat. So there, one more incentive. That is why when Zune in Hilton Janakpuri wanted to bring alive that magic in its Indian restaurant, we thought it should be worthwhile travelling all the way to Janakpuri to check out what they have managed to achieve. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix‘Clay pot cooking is a technique of cooking food in an unglazed clay pot which has been soaked in water so as to release steam during the cooking process,’ says Mohd Irfan, Chef de cuisine. ‘Typically, an unglazed clay pot is submerged for 15 to 30 minutes to absorb water before cooking, then filled with the food and placed inside an oven. The food inside the clay pot loses little of its moisture because it is surrounded by steam, creating a tender, flavourful dish,’ he adds. At the restaurant, there was a wide variety of dishes to choose from, both vegetarian and non vegetarian. So one could pick and choose from traditional dishes like Haandi ki bhuni tangdi, Patthar ke palak kebab, Dal paneer ki tikki, Kachchi handi ka saag, Kachhi handi ka Ghee dum murg, Kachchi handi ka hara dhaniya gosht, Dum ki malika e dariya, Ghuti chana dal, Chooza biryani, Dum bhujiya and Pyaz dhaniya ki bhuni gobhi.

Global Peace Index Violence costs Costa Rica nearly 4 billion every year

Costa Rica ranked the third most peaceful country in the Americas after Canada and Uruguay. Costa Rica scored 34th in the world.Costa Rica spent an estimated $3.9 billion on violence-related expenses and lost productivity in 2014, roughly 6 percent of its GDP, according to the index. Published by the think tank Institute for Economics and Peace, the index said the cost of violence around the world has risen $1.9 trillion between 2008 and 2014 to $14.3 trillion.The index based its findings on the idea that violence destroys human and physical capital along with social and political institutions. The results of that damage ultimately have a direct and indirect economic impact. Military expenditure, crime and interpersonal violence, conflict and internal security are the four main categories used to quantify the costs each country incurs. The categories covered items like incarceration costs, loss of capital costs from crime and homicide, and indirect costs like loss of productivity, among other variables.Several Latin American nations are among those that pay the most per capita for their safety, according to the index. Honduras, for example, spends more than 20 percent of its GDP on violence containment. Colombia and El Salvador spend 18 percent and 17 percent, respectively, of their GDP on violence-containment expenses.Central America and the Caribbean saw improvements in its score between 2013 and 2014, but the region remained less peaceful than the global average. Costa Rica and Jamaica saw the greatest improvement in their scores. Meanwhile, increases in El Salvador’s “political violence” and violent crime in Nicaragua dragged down the scores of those countries.Iceland was the most peaceful country in the world while Syria ranked as the least.

first_img Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk At the same time, Collins said, the measure preserves $500 million in funding for transportation grants that have roots in President Barack Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus bill. The measure rejects House-sought cuts to Amtrak and actually would add $53 million above its current budget to lift the passenger system’s funding to almost $1.7 billion.Collins touted provisions to require the Transportation Department to quickly finalize rules to require truckers to use electronic logging devices to record their hours on the road and to force it to propose rules requiring devices known as speed governors to prevent trucks from flouting the speed limit.“These rulemakings will go a long way to increasing the level of safety on our nation’s roadways,” Collins said.Democrats praised Collins for her efforts but said the transportation and housing bill simply doesn’t contain enough money.“Neglecting transportation and public housing responsibilities at the federal level overburdens states and local communities and leads to more congestion, pollution and job losses,” said top Appropriations Committee Democrat Barbara Mikulski of Maryland.The measures are the latest of the 12 annual spending bills to begin their advance in the Senate but, like the others, are caught in crossfire between Republicans controlling Congress and Obama and his Democratic allies on Capitol Hill. Senate Democrats are using their filibuster power to hold up the spending bills hoping the impasse will drive Republicans to the negotiating table and agree to increases for domestic programs matching those for the Pentagon. Top Stories The sweeping labor, health and education bill is among 12 annual spending measures funding agency operating budgets for the upcoming budget year. The measure is $3.6 billion below current levels, which forced Blunt to make large cuts. He would cut the agency responsible for running the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid by 28 percent, impose a $400 million cut to community health centers, and cut the Centers for Disease Control by $251 million, or 4 percent.“This bill would make deep cuts to middle-class priorities like health care, education, job training, worker protection programs, women’s health, and more,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.Earlier Tuesday, another appropriations panel moved to slash almost $1 billion from a program that helps state and local governments provide affordable housing even as it spared Amtrak from cuts recommended by House Republicans.The sponsor of that $56 billion legislation funding transportation and housing programs, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the cuts to the HOME Investment Partnerships Program were necessary to prevent reductions to a housing rental voucher program for the poor that serves 4.5 million individuals and families. Only $66 million would be available for the HOME program for the upcoming budget year, which Democrats said could result in about 40,000 fewer units being made available in the upcoming budget year.

Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sobercenter_img WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans Tuesday proposed cuts to community health centers, national service, and grants to help children from low- and moderate-income families attend preschool as they unveiled the largest domestic appropriations bill, a $153 billion measure that’s sure to attract a veto threat from President Barack Obama.The author of the bill, Roy Blunt of Missouri, instead boosted the budget for the National Institutes of Health by $2 billion while awarding small increases to large programs giving grants to states for low-income school districts and special-needs children. Democrats said the measure, which cuts almost $15 billion from Obama’s budget request for programs covered by it, is woefully inadequate and has no chance of advancing far until a budget deal provides more money.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “Yeah, it depends on who is available. It’s nice to have five healthy scratches. So yeah, I already pretty much have an idea of who is going to be inactive already.”On whether Bucannon’s recovery is slower than he had hoped:“No. It was right on schedule, and then he sprained it the first day working out on the bags.” On whether he knows how long it will set him back:“No. It’s one of those things. It could be tomorrow. It could be three weeks.”On what day it was that Bucannon reinjured himself:“The first day he worked out.”On whether it’s a good move for the league to hire 21 full-time officials:“I don’t think there’s any doubt about it. If we can have all the referees in each crew, the referee was full-time, then I think you’d have very consistent – from New York, from the referee to his crew – and get more consistent refereeing.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter On whether he’s confident with the passing game heading into this game against the Lions:“Oh yeah. Yeah. With or without John Brown’s health, I’m extremely confident. Especially with where Carson (Palmer) is. More because I feel good about our protection and the rest of the guys.”On how much WR John Brown adds to the Cardinals’ offense:“He just adds another element, because we’ve got two fast guys. When you have three of them, it’s kind of special.”On where G Alex Boone fits in and whether he’ll be competing for a starting spot:“He’s just learning. Right now, he learned the snap count today, and he got a few reps. We’ll see. Right now, there’ll have to be an injury or somebody has to really fail badly.” On what Boone brings to the team:“A guy that has played the positions, all across the (line), in very good organizations at a high level. A pro. It’s one thing to depend on a rookie you really like, and it’s nicer to have a veteran, so you don’t have to throw that rookie out there.”On whether he has made adjustments as a play-caller to better protect Palmer:“Yeah, I think we did some of that as the year went on last year, and he has to protect himself just as much as the guys protecting him. It’s not just the offensive line; it’s the running backs, it’s all eleven of them seeing their hots and sights. We missed too many of those last year where we took hits, or missed a sight adjustment.” On the chances that Bucannon and Nkemdiche will play on Sunday:“Bucannon has no chance. Nkemdiche has got a real good shot.”On what adjustments the team made last year to protect Palmer better:“Just changing different route combinations. We still took our shots down the field. It was just how we took them with different protections, less play-action with his back turned and more with him facing the targets.”On what makes him think that the protection will be better:“I just watched these guys practice for 35 days. They all look better.”On whether protection improved with position changes on the offensive line:“Yeah, if we hadn’t, we probably would have moved them back. But, I’ve liked where it’s at so far.”On when he realized what the team had in LB Markus Golden and RB David Johnson after the Lions drafted RB Ameer Abdullah:“Well with Markus, I think, is pretty quick and David, probably after the kickoff return, after that Chicago game, when he had all of his touchdowns. So yeah, it’s funny how things like that work out.”On whether he anticipates the Lions to run the ball more:“Not really. I don’t think you leave who you are. I think they’re going to run it. They’re going to run it, but I think they’re a team that’s going to throw the ball to set up the run.” On whether he ever envisioned “No risk it, no biscuit” shirts being made when he first made that statement:“No, not at all. There are a lot of things I’ve said that I didn’t think they’d put on a shirt.”On the lesson the 2015 NFL Draft when the team didn’t draft Abdullah, yet it worked out the way it did:“Have a really good board set up, and trust it. (General Manager) Steve (Keim) and (Vice President of Player Personnel) Terry (McDonough) have done a great job of always having two or three guys right there, that we’re going to get one of these guys. And if we don’t like this one, have them ranked, and turn that card in and make sure everybody’s happy. Because I don’t think we’ve ever picked a guy that I haven’t been happy about.”On whether it’s hard to have your eye on a particular player and then not have the opportunity to draft him:“Yeah, because you kind of figure, ‘This is our guy,’ because he’s right there.’ It’s happened to me, at least eight or nine times. Sitting there thinking, ‘Oh, we’ve got this guy,’ and boom, he’s gone either the pick right before or two picks before. He’s gone.”On whether he knows who his top 46 players are this early in the season: Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 0 Comments   Share   center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media several times leading up to gameday.Here, in this space, with help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following practice.Opening statement:“A very good start to practice.
