Antonio Conte has said Inter cannot be upset at falling behind Atalanta with their draw against Fiorentina. ‘Second place is just first for losers.’ The 0-0 result at San Siro this evening means Juventus can clinch their ninth consecutive Serie A title tomorrow night with a win against Udinese. “It was a good game, we played with the right intensity and passing moves, but were unlucky when hitting the woodwork twice,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “I can’t complain when the lads put in this desire and we even risked losing it at the end through our sheer desire to win. Fiorentina deserve credit for a very good defensive performance. “When you drop points, there are always things that have gone wrong. We are trying to develop a killer instinct and I am happy if my players are disappointed at this draw, because that shows my work is bearing fruit. “Every game is a test to prove that we are growing. I think this team hasn’t reaped what it sowed this season, aside from securing a Champions League place with several rounds to spare.”Advertisement Promoted ContentFantastic-Looking (and Probably Delicious) Bread Art7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoThe Best Cars Of All Time7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market ValueMacaulay Culkin’s Own Version Of The New ‘Home Alone’7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayFascinating Ceilings From Different CountriesEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Regional economic outlookBy Jarryl BryanThe International Monetary Fund (IMF) is projecting Guyana’s inflation would continue to rise in 2018. This is a dangerous development, even as the country struggles to shake off the effects of a slowdown in the economy.According to the IMF in its Regional Economic Outlook Update on Latin America and the Caribbean, economic growth in Guyana is being supported by two large gold mines and “positive sentiment ahead of oil production.”According to the IMF, Guyana’s projected output growth (value for goods it produces) for 2017 is 3.5 per cent. For the year 2018 it is 3.6 per cent. But the IMF also projected a 2.6 per cent rise in inflation (rate at which prices for goods and services increase) for 2017, while a 2.7 per cent increase is expected for next year.Indeed, inflation has been steadily rising over the years, with the financial organisation noting that in 2014 it stood at 1.2 per cent. In 2016 it rose to 1.5 per cent.“After disappointing growth over the past few years, economic activity in Latin America remains on track to recover gradually in 2017–18, as the global economy gathers steam and recessions in a few countries in the region come to an end,” the IMF stated in the report.“Long-term growth, however, remains weak, hampering income convergence toward advanced economy levels. Fiscal space to support demand is limited, particularly for commodity exporters. But monetary policy can play a supportive role, because inflation has been moderating rapidly,” it added.The IMF urged Governments to urgently press ahead with much-needed structural reforms, to ensure that growth is sustained and inclusive. It recommended that countries improve their infrastructure, invest in human capital, encourage more females in the labour force, increase oversight of the labour market, enhance governance and anti-corruption efforts, and take steps to further trade.Mid-year reportThe Finance Ministry’s half-year report was released in July of this year. It had stated that inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Georgetown, was recorded at 1.1 per cent in June 2017. According to the Mid-Year report, the main driver of inflation in the first half of 2017 continued to be food prices.“Prices grew significantly for pulse and pulse products, 14.5 per cent; condiments and spices, 7.1 per cent; cereals and cereal products, 5.2 per cent; oils and fats, 4.3 per cent; and vegetables and vegetable products, 4.1 per cent.“Prices for transport and communication, medical and personal care; and education, recreation and culture also recorded increases in the first half of 2017,” the report had stated, also expressing optimism that the inflation rate would be kept in check.The IMF’s observation that Guyana has gold to thank for its economic performance is telling, since the Mid-Year report had revealed mining to be among the sectors on the decline when compared to the corresponding period in 2016. The declining sectors had also included sugar, livestock, forestry, quarrying, and even the bauxite industry.It showed that sugar production was recorded at 49,606 tonnes at the half-year, and when compared to 56,645 tonnes during the first half of 2016, represented a decline of 12.4 per cent. The livestock industry also contracted by 10.9 per cent in the first half of 2017, due to heavy rainfall severely affecting production, especially in the second quarter.The forestry industry also showed an 18.2 per cent contraction in the first six months of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016. Declining production within the forestry industry was due to structural changes in the industry.The mining and quarrying sector contracted by 4.0 per cent, during the first half of 2017. Gold production fell by 1.7 per cent to 317,096 ounces in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016.Also, it showed the bauxite industry declined by 11.5 per cent as a result of reduced production of higher valued grades. read more
City Manager Andrea Travis agreed to send Welch. “It also provided a tremendous learning opportunity for Ric,” Travis said. “There was a benefit to the city in terms of training and level of preparedness. There are many things that are similar whether you’re facing an earthquake or hurricane.” Welch flew to Jackson, Miss., then drove to Baton Rouge, where he initially helped inspect shelters and delivered supplies. Later, he spent time with officials in the Environmental Protection Agency, getting a big-picture look at the disaster. Welch also took a couple of days to drive along the Mississippi coast, looking up aunts, cousins and uncles. Everyone was OK. He never caught up with his parents. “They had jumped in their RV and headed north like smart people,” he said. Welch then returned to Baton Rouge, where he acted as liaison between the Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and local parishes. “I knew some of the people by name, and I can turn my Louisiana accent back on and make people feel comfortable. I went down to open some doors and ease some of the tension,” he said. One of the biggest issues was dealing with when or whether to allow the re-entry of residents to their homes, he said. “It seemed like every day, four to five times a day, priorities shifted,” he said. Welch returned home last month, with some important lessons learned. “I learned how the best-laid plans can fly out the window, the need for redundancy, the need for trained self-reliance among residents, and the need for cooperation between agencies and municipalities,” he said. Emergency officials “wanted desperately to help but didn’t know how,” Welch said. “I don’t want to ever find myself in that position. Hopefully I never have to look at our residents and not have a plan.” — Mike Sprague can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022, or by e-mail at [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LA MIRADA — La Mirada public safety Manager Ric Welch lived in Louisiana for most of his life, so when Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, he just knew he just had to go. “Having been born and raised there and realizing that a lot of the sites that make Louisiana what it is may never be seen again, it was extremely difficult to put (the disaster) out of mind and come to work and act like nothing was going on,” he said. Welch, 42, who lives in unincorporated Riverside, spent three weeks in Baton Rouge and nearby cities, working with the Red Cross and others. That experience was like nothing else he has ever done, he said. “It was like seeing the aftermath of war right here on your home turf,” Welch said. “I don’t think you can see that kind of devastation and all these familiar places undone — buildings you used to go watch movies, sporting events or theatrical events now filled with refugees — and not have a deep, lasting impact.

Born in Baton Rouge, La., Welch grew up in areas near there. At age 23, he joined the U.S. Navy, but returned home nine years ago to become director of parks and recreation for Pointe Coupee Parish, La. In 2000, he was hired by the city of La Mirada as its gymnasium coordinator, eventually becoming an administrative analyst until his promotion to public safety manager in July. But he still has relatives, including his parents, in Louisiana. read more
Darwin may still rule from the grave, but Phillip Johnson has good reason to hope Darwin’s ghost will decay with the old evolutionist’s interred bones. A father of the intelligent design movement, Johnson wrote and spoke and influenced many with his focus on the linch pin of Darwinism, its insistence on undirected natural processes. It’s the 20th anniversary of the publication of Johnson’s highly influential book Darwin on Trial, and the Discovery Institute, an ID think tank, has just launched a new website and series to re-popularize Johnson’s impact. The website is DarwinOnTrail.com, featuring a biography, book list, articles, news and multimedia. A series of articles on Johnson, including video clips, can be found on Evolution News & Views: Darwin on Trail 20 Years Later, Phillip Johnson Reflects on Darwin on Trial Anniversary, and New Website Celebrates Darwin on Trial in its 20th Anniversary. More articles will be forthcoming during the week. If you’re new to Phillip E. Johnson, start with the short intro video to get an idea of why he is important. Then watch a 90-minute speech he gave in his prime posted at Evolution News & Views to appreciate his cogent, insightful, articulate explication of the central issues in the Darwin vs design debates.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 read more

By: Sarah Pittman BS in dietetics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-ChampaignWith school in full swing, and everyone getting back into their normal routines again, what better time to look at the current research of the benefits of eating breakfast to remember why it is so important!So, what is the current research saying? “Eating breakfast before exercise may ‘prime’ the body to burn carbohydrates during exercise and more rapidly digest food after working out…” (University of Bath, 2018).“Breakfast skipping leads to more eating of unhealthy diet later in the day because of prolonged craving” (Bandyopandhyay, D., Ashish, K., Hajra, A., Ghosh, R., 2018).“Prolonged hypoglycemia leads to overactivity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis causing sympathetic activation validates its temporal association with AF and chronically elevated cortisol in habitual breakfast skippers, associated with cardiometabolic derangements…” (Bandyopandhyay, D., Ashish, K., Hajra, A., Ghosh, R., 2018).“Subclinical atherosclerosis is more prevalent in breakfast skippers” (Bandyopandhyay, D., Ashish, K., Hajra, A., Ghosh, R., 2018).“Late night overeating is associated with skipping and/or consuming a smaller breakfast. In children with low levels of physical activity, it is associated with increased body mass index” (Karatzi, K., Moschonis, G., Choupi, E., Manios, Y., 2018).What are great breakfast options? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggest these breakfast ideas to “power up with breakfast” (Gordon, B., 2018):OatmealYogurt ParfaitBreakfast SmoothieToaster wafflePita egg sandwichBanana roll upBagel and veggiesEnglish muffinOverall, there are many benefits to eating breakfast, research has shown that people who eat breakfast are more likely to have balanced diets than those who don’t, they are less likely to be overweight and have reduced risk of diseases like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, (Brost, B., 2018).Do you eat breakfast daily?
