first_imgJAKARTA, Indonesia — Investigators of the Oct. 28 crash of a Lion Air flight into the Java Sea say the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft was deemed airworthy when it made its final takeoff from Jakarta.The officials summoned reporters Thursday to refute reports on a news conference the day before where some media reported they had said the plane was not airworthy when it took off.The investigators were reporting on data from the aircraft’s black boxes.

JNU sedition Delhi govt seeks months time to grant sanction to prosecute

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi government on Wednesday sought before a court here a month’s time to decide whether to grant sanction to prosecute former JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and others in the 2016 JNU sedition case. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat directed the AAP government to file a “proper reply”, citing a definite time-frame. DCP of Special Cell of Delhi Police, Pramod Kushwaha, had earlier told the court that the agency has already sent a request to the Delhi government seeking sanction and added that sanction was an administrative action and the charge sheet can be filed without that. The Delhi Police had earlier told the court that authorities were yet to give requisite sanctions to prosecute Kumar and others in the case, and it would take two to three months to procure sanctions. On January 14, police had filed a charge sheet in the court against Kumar and others, saying he was leading a procession and supported seditious slogans raised in the JNU campus during an event on February 9, 2016.last_img read more

Ohio State baseball rallies to undefeated start in 4game Florida series

Then-sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson awaits a pitch.Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State baseball team opened the 2016 season with a bang.Over the course of the four-game weekend, OSU hammered six home runs, pounded out 38 hits and maintained an unbeaten 3-0-1 record in Vero Beach, Florida’s, Dodgertown Classic. Several Buckeyes had outstanding weekends, but none more than redshirt junior Jacob Bosiokovic. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound right fielder finished the weekend with a .412 batting average after going 7-for-17, including three home runs and eight RBIs. Senior captain Nick Sergakis also finished with a .412 average, and senior second baseman L Grant Davis batted a clean .400. Game 1 versus Toledo In the opening game, the Buckeyes were led by their workhorse pitcher, Tanner Tully, who retired 24 of the 25 batters he faced over six scoreless innings as they defeated Toledo 7-1. “It was just what the doctor ordered to have a first start like that,” OSU coach Greg Beals said in a press release. “Give the Toledo hitters credit. I thought they took some good swings and hit him at times. He wasn’t his sharpest, but six scoreless innings is pretty darn good.”OSU’s offense was powered by the long ball against the Rockets, as it crushed three home runs during the game. Bosiokovic went 3-for-5, with a solo home run in his first at-bat of the year which gave the Buckeyes the early lead. Junior catcher and team captain Jalen Washington also crushed a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to push OSU’s lead to 5-0. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, junior center fielder Troy Montgomery hit a two-run homer to right, pushing OSU’s lead to an insurmountable 7-0. Toledo would tack on a late homer in the top of the eighth to mark the final score of 7-1. Beals said it was great for his team to step up and play clean baseball in the first game of the season, as it has been a long road coming for some of his guys. “Both Jacob and Jalen took advantage of their opportunity today,” Beals said. “Jalen has been working his tail off for three years and got the nod. It was great to see him get off to a good start. For Bosiokovic, he struggled and dealt with some injury in the past, and hopefully today will allow him to relax a little bit and have a great season for us.”Game 2 versus NiagaraTo start Saturday’s doubleheader of the Dodgertown Classic trip, the Buckeye bats continued to carry the momentum, especially Bosiokovic. The Delaware, Ohio, native went 2-for-5, including a two-run homer and a walk-off three-run shot to seal a 10-8 comeback victory for the Buckeyes.Redshirt sophomore pitcher Adam Niemeyer started off hot for OSU, allowing only one run over the first four innings. But then the wheels started to fall off for the Minster, Ohio, native, as he allowed four runs in the fifth. He was pulled that inning, giving way to sophomore reliever Seth Kinker, who stopped the bleeding for OSU. That bandage didn’t stay on for long though, as Kinker allowed two more runs in the top sixth inning, pinning OSU to a 7-4 deficit. The Scarlet and Gray showed resiliency, however, as Washington scored on a sacrifice fly by sophomore designated hitter Jordan McDonough. Kinker would settle down, pitching a scoreless seventh, and Bosiokovic correspondingly hit a two-run home run off the left-center scoreboard tying the game. Kinker pitched a scoreless eighth, then redshirt sophomore Yianni Pavlopoulos made his season debut in the ninth, blanking the Purple Eagles and setting the stage for Bosiokovic.OSU quickly got runners on base in the ninth after senior shortstop Craig Nennig walked and advanced to second on a throwing error. Montgomery was then intentionally walked, bringing up No. 17. Bosiokovic crushed a 2-2 pitch off the foul pole in left field to give the Buckeyes their second victory in as many games. Game 3 versus PittsburghIn the second half of the doubleheader on Saturday, the Buckeyes faced the Pittsburgh Panthers. The game would turn out to be a marathon, as the two teams battled 13 innings before OSU won the game 11-8 after a three-run 13th. Montgomery continued his hot start, as the Fortville, Indiana, native went 3-for-6 on the evening, including his second home run and three RBIs. Senior John Havird pitched 5.2 innings for the Buckeyes as the Game 3 starter for OSU, allowing five runs while striking out six Panthers batters. With Pittsburgh up 6-5 heading into the top of the ninth, OSU rallied for the second time that day, scoring three runs to take the 8-6 lead. The lead wouldn’t last, however, as it evaporated after giving up two more runs to send the game into extra innings. No runs were scored in the 10th, 11th or 12th innings as both teams held their ground. The Buckeyes broke through in the 13th with three runs to push their lead to 11-8. Nennig, Davis and Montgomery all scored to provide the insurance runs for the Scarlet and Gray. Freshman relief pitcher Connor Curlis came in to start the 12th inning and remained in for the 13th to finish off the Panthers and pick up the two-inning win in his collegiate debut. Game 4 versus ToledoAs the final game in Vero Beach got underway, the Buckeyes’ red-hot bats continued to bring home the runs. Junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson hit a double to bring home Montgomery and Bosiokovic in the top of the first inning. Dawson would later score on a sacrifice fly by freshman third baseman Brady Cherry to give OSU the early 3-0 lead. The lead quickly dissolved, however, as freshman starting pitcher Ryan Feltner gave up four runs over the first three innings, leaving the Buckeyes down 4-3. Feltner was pulled in the fifth for senior lefty Daulton Mosbarger. Over the next three innings of scoreless ball, Mosbarger struck out six, allowing just one walk and three hits. OSU tied the game in the eighth when Dawson scored on another sac fly, this time off the bat of junior first baseman Zach Ratcliff. But in the bottom of the same inning, Toledo would tack-on a go-ahead run on a fielding error, putting them in position for the win.The Buckeyes once again turned to the bat of Bosiokovic, who provided the game-tying run on a sacrifice fly to score Davis. The game ended in a 5-5 draw, marking the first time since 2002 that the Buckeyes tied a game. The Buckeyes will next look ahead to the Coastal Carolina Tournament from Feb. 26 to 29. OSU is scheduled to play Duke, Coastal Carolina (twice, Games 2 and 4) and Liberty in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. read more

Jackets to face familiar foe

A fighter in hockey is like a first girlfriend:  Even when they’re gone, you always remember them. That’s why Jody Shelley, despite only averaging two goals per year, is still revered in Columbus. Shelley was the first enforcer that the Jackets ever had, and for the skilled players in the game (the Nash’s, the Klesla’s, the Brassards), there’s nothing that brings more confidence than knowing that a cheap shot by the opposition will not go unpunished. For six-and-a-half years, that retribution, brought by Shelley, was on behalf of Columbus. But tonight, when the Jackets visit the San Jose Sharks, it will be against the Jackets.In the middle of the 2007 season, Shelley was traded to San Jose.  For the time that he was with Columbus, Shelley received nothing but love from the fans — a fight involving him received the same cheers as a Nash goal did. Rarely did he lose these fights, but he did always drop the gloves. And in hockey, only the goalie and superstar receive more respect than the fighter does. Maybe the fans in San Jose love Shelley as much as those did and still do in Columbus, but either way he has not changed much in the past two years.  Only three games into the season and already Shelley has racked up 22 minutes in the penalty box, at an average of 7.4 minutes per game. Numbers like that remind the Jacket fans why Shelley was so loved: He was a fighter, not a lover.It will be bittersweet to see him again (like seeing an ex, only with a new lover), but nonetheless the memories will be flowing seeing the 45 with the Shelley on the back of jersey.If only it was white and blue, not black and teal. read more

Two women rescued from canyon in La Jolla

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two women had to be rescued from a La Jolla canyon amid Saturday’s storm, fire officials said. The two became stuck in Box Canyon, and firefighters and lifeguardsresponded to help around 3 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department’s Facebook page.Slippery terrain and heavy river water flow made the rescues difficult, and one of the women slipped when she tried to exit the canyon on her own, then traveled about 30 feet in the water.“She ended up going down a waterfall and landing on the beach,” the Facebook post read. “Fortunately, she was not seriously hurt and did not have to be taken to the hospital.”The two were able to be brought up using a rope system.

Memo Raises Legal Questions With Alaska Budget Language

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A legislative attorney says language in Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal giving his budget office discretion to transfer money within departments raises legal and constitutional questions. The memo was requested and released by Sen. Bill Wielechowski (wil-uh-KOW’-ski), a Democratic member of the Senate Finance Committee. The budget language in question states that at the budget office’s discretion, it could transfer funding between items in a department. Linda Bruce, in a memo, writes that a court is unlikely to find that the language is legally permissible or constitutional. She notes that the Legislature has the power of appropriation. Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow says the state Department of Law has not raised concerns with the language.last_img read more

Small Publishers and Marketing Services

first_imgFor some publishers, acquiring their way into marketing services (in March, Penton bought online marketing firm EyeTraffic Media) may be the best option. Referencing the development of Meredith Integrated Marketing, Tom Stein, president and founder of b-to-b agency Stein Rogan + Partners, said it was based on six acquisitions and that former Meredith National Media group president Jack Griffin told him, “If we decided to do this in-house, we’d still be just talking about it.” However, most smaller publishers don’t have the war chest for six marketing acquisitions (or spending $350 million on a digital agency the way Hearst did for iCrossing). For them, entering marketing services requires a mix of in-house development and strategic partnering. Last week, Northstar Travel Media announced a marketing solutions division based around two internal staffers (a VP of marketing solutions in former TravelAge West publisher Michelle Rosenberg and a dedicated project manager), and a strategic tech partner in Decision Counsel to execute programs. American Business Media’s annual meeting this year took a single theme approach, focusing on the opportunity for b-to-b publishers to offer marketing services. While the core of marketing services is based on many things publishers already offer (content, data, lead gen), it’s also a different business with longer sales cycles, potentially lower margins, and a different sales and editorial mentality. It’s the latest example of publishers “chasing new money in a hurry,” according to Mitch Rouda, president of e-media at Farm Journal Media. Stage 1: Status quo—no projects. Customers should be addressed with best practices and industry trends. Stage 2: Discovery—the customer knows they need a project but isn’t sure what to do. Here, white papers and Webinars are applicable. Stage 3: Vendor selection. Here Summit presents customer testimonials, assessment tools in which prospects can enter data and increasing use of video. “For our market, they want to see the machines in action, says Newcorn. Stage 4: Short list. Vendor comparison charts. “Here, they need something downloadable,” says Newcorn. “A chart indicates they’re pretty far down the path. A boardroom PowerPoint is something junior execs can show to more senior, maybe less tech savvy execs.” The Summit proposal package includes a kick-off meeting with the content creators, written analysis and recommendations and a 12-month road map. “Now that we have the infrastructure to produce custom packages, now we have to look at how we sell it,” says Newcorn. Summit Media also debuted a new dedicated custom media group (“custom” is increasingly becoming a dirty word that marketing can’t relate too—hence the rise of “marketing solutions.”) with seven full-time people and multiple freelancers. “What’s interesting is [clients] want our expertise as content producers, not our audience,” said Dave Newcorn, vice president of digital and custom media. center_img Many of the services now falling under the umbrella of “marketing solutions” have previously been offered as value-added. “We need to change the nature of free with things like copywriting, consulting, white papers and surveys,” says Newcorn. “We charged one client $7,500 to put together a survey and send it. In any other kind of work, that’s consulting.” Summit came up with a price calculator that deducts hard costs but also incentivizes salespeople to sell high. Part of getting the new custom group off the ground was a “lunch & learn” campaign in which Newcorn and his group visited 108 customers in 15 cities, explaining the concept of lead nurturing. The publisher also did research identifying four stages of the buying process and what solutions to offer. They include:last_img read more

TurboTax HR Block tried to hide free tax filing tools lawsuit alleges

first_img Comments Share your voice Got free, if you can find it. That’s how a current lawsuit might characterize the situation. Kimberly White/Getty Images Tax preparation companies H&R Block and Intuit, which makes TurboTax, were sued Monday for allegedly making their free tax filing tools hard to find.Taxpayers with incomes below $66,000 are eligible to file their taxes for free as part of a partnership between the Internal Revenue Service and Intuit, H&R Block and other companies. Under the agreement, the IRS has agreed not to make online tax filing free as long as the tax-preparation companies provide the service.Still, only 3% of Americans reportedly file their taxes for free every year, and locating those services can be difficult.Last month, ProPublica reported that searches for terms like “irs free file taxes” directed people to paid versions of Intuit’s service. Free options were tough to pin down, according to the report.In the suit, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said TurboTax and H&R Block have used “deceptive and misleading advertising and design schemes” to lead taxpayers to unnecessarily purchasing their products. He added that the companies have “for years defrauded the lowest earning 70 percent of American taxpayers … by actively undermining public access to the IRS’ ‘Free File’ program.”For years, Intuit and H&R Block have lobbied to block the IRS from building its own free online tax filing system because it would compete with their products, according to ProPublica. Congress members have reportedly pushed to keep the IRS from providing free online filing.”Any suggestion that Intuit does not support the IRS Free File Program is flat wrong,” said TurboTax spokesman Rick Heineman. “We stand behind our actions as being both appropriate and consistent with our values.”An H&R Block representative said the company has “helped millions of Americans” with its free tax filing options, adding that use of its Free File program grew 8% this tax season.You can read the lawsuits against Intuit and H&R Block below:Intuit lawsuit by jonathan_skillings on ScribdH&R Block lawsuit by jonathan_skillings on Scribd Softwarecenter_img Tags 7last_img read more
