(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)From 2001 to 2011, Jim Bollman worked for Ohio State, serving as both the offensive coordinator and the offensive line coach. In his final year with the Buckeyes, as Eleven Warriors notes, he didn’t “seriously” recruit Taylor Decker, leading the four-star then-recruit to commit to Notre Dame. Decker eventually switched his commitment to Ohio State after Urban Meyer was brought in, and, as we all know, he’s become a star for the program.Monday afternoon, Decker was asked about having to face off against Bollman, who now works for Michigan State, this Saturday.

Dust from Rajasthan leads to sudden spike in Delhi pollution

first_imgNEW DELHI: There is a sudden spike in the pollution level in Delhi which remained persistent now for nearly 48 hours. On Friday, the pollution level remained between poor and very poor quality, on Thursday throughout the day the air quality remained very poor. A sudden change in wind direction covered the national capital in the dust, which was kicked up from the deserts in Rajasthan. The sudden change in the wind direction brought dust in the National Capital from the deserts in Rajasthan, leading to a rise in pollution level, said the weather officials. A scientist from Safar, a pollution forecasting agency under the Union Earth Sciences Ministry said, “Delhi has come under the influence of a dust storm that originated in Rajasthan. The change in wind direction transported high mineral dust… It will take at least two days to dissipate.”last_img read more

TSX drops 105 points amid mixed earnings from RBC TD and CIBC

TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed lower Thursday, pressured by the financial sector as the latest batch of bank earnings disappointed, giving traders an excuse to take some more profits from a sector that has delivered solid returns all year.The S&P/TSX composite index fell 104.52 points to 13,200.4 with extra selling pressure coming from mining stocks amid falling commodity prices.The Canadian dollar erased early losses to rise a third of a cent to 93.98 cents US.Toronto-Dominion Bank (TSX:TD) shares fell $1.35 to $94.40 after it reported a quarterly profit of $1.622 billion, up from $1.597 billion a year ago. On an adjusted basis, TD earned $1.90 per share, up from $1.83 a year ago but nine cents less than analysts had expected.The bank also raised its dividend by a penny to 86 cents a share and announced a two-for-one stock split.Most of TD’s major units showed increases but net income from wholesale banking fell by 61 per cent to $122 million from a year earlier.Meanwhile, Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY) had $2.119 billion of quarterly net income, up 11 per cent from last year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $1.42, four cents higher than analysts had forecast. But its shares fell 83 cents to $68.17 as Barclays analyst John Aiken pointed to both the wealth management and retail banking divisions as performing weaker than he expected.RBC also announced that president and chief executive Gordon Nixon will retire next summer.CIBC (TSX:CM) shares dropped $1.23 to $88.82 as it reported a profit of $836 million in net income in its latest quarter, down from $852 million a year ago. After adjusting for one-time items, earnings were $2.22 per share, seven cents ahead of estimates and up 8.8 per cent from a year ago.Analysts pointed out that despite the pressure on the bank stocks Thursday, the financial sector was still up about 18 per cent year to date.“None of the numbers were bad per se, they just didn’t knock the lights out and it’s something that people got accustomed to with the Canadian banks,” said Sadiq Adatia, chief investment officer of Sun Life Global Investment.“There’s a lot of good things going forward, it’s just that at some point in time people’s expectations get higher than what a company can deliver.”U.S. indexes were lower as concerns about what the Federal Reserve will do with a key stimulus measure grew in the wake of more positive economic data.The Dow Jones industrials lost 68.26 points to 15,821.51 amid further positive news on the U.S. jobs front a day before the release of the government’s employment report. The U.S. Labor Department reported that applications for jobless benefits, which are a proxy for layoffs, dropped 23,000 last week to 296,000.The Nasdaq declined 4.84 points to 4,033.16 and the S&P 500 index was down 7.78 points to 1,785.03.Expectations for job creation in the government employment report moved higher after payroll firm ADP reported Wednesday that the private sector added 215,000 jobs last month. Prior to that report, markets had expected job creation of about 183,000.But while a stronger report would be welcomed as another sign of an improving economy, it would also raise concerns the Federal Reserve is getting close to cutting back on its US$85 billion of monthly bond purchases, a program that has kept long term rates low and supported a strong stock market rally this year.On the TSX, the financial sector was down about 0.66 per cent but still ahead about 18 per cent year to date.Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) shares fell 38 cents to $63.32 ahead of its earnings report coming out on Friday.But the gold sector was the biggest percentage decliner, falling almost three per cent. December bullion declined $15.30 to US$1,231.90 as the precious metal appeared less attractive on rising speculation the Fed will move sooner than thought to taper asset purchases. Goldcorp (TSX:G) fell 79 cents to C$22.14 and Kinross Gold (TSX:K) faded eight cents to $4.85.Base metals were also lower as March copper declined two cents to US$3.23 a pound. The base metals sector fell per cent and HudBay Minerals gave back 14 cents to $7.70.The energy sector declined 0.32 per cent while the January crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained 18 cents to US$97.38 a barrel. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) gave back 84 cents to $36.27.A major mover on the TSX was Precision Drilling. Its stock fell 93 cents or 9.06 per cent to $9.33 on huge volume of 74.1 million shares. Most of the volume came from a block trade of 56 million shares by Alberta Investment Management Company. by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 5, 2013 6:27 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TSX drops 105 points amid mixed earnings from RBC, TD and CIBC, Fed concerns read more

Home Capital to pay 305M to settle OSC and classaction matters

by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 14, 2017 5:19 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 15, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Home Capital to pay $30.5M to settle OSC and class-action matters TORONTO – Home Capital Group (TSX:HCG) said it reached an agreement Wednesday to pay $30.5 million to settle Ontario Securities Commission and class-action lawsuit matters related to allegations of misleading disclosure.“Home Capital will accept full responsibility for failing to meet its disclosure obligations to the marketplace and appreciates the importance of the serious concerns raised by the (OSC) with respect to continuous and timely disclosure,” said Brenda Eprile, chair of the Home Capital Board, in a statement.“These settlements will enable us to move forward with regaining the confidence of our depositors and shareholders and creating value for all our stakeholders.”In April, staff at the OSC alleged that three Home Capital executives broke the law in their handling of a scandal involving falsified loan applications several years ago. In 2015, the company severed ties with 45 brokers over the fraud allegations. Two of those brokers have been sanctioned by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, while the other 43 have not.Under terms of the proposed deal with the OSC, the embattled alternative mortgage lender will pay $10 million to settle with the provincial securities watchdog and reimburse it costs of $500,000.Home Capital founder Gerald Soloway will pay an administrative penalty of $1 million and will be barred from acting as a director or officer of a public company for four years.Former CFO Robert Morton and former CEO Martin Reid will each pay an administrative penalty of $500,000, and will be prohibited from acting as a director or officer of a public company for two years.About $11 million of the payments being made to the OSC will go toward the $29.5-million, class-action settlement. The lawsuit, which is related to the allegations of misleading disclosure, was filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in February and has yet to be certified.Since the OSC allegations surfaced, Home Capital has been struggling to stay afloat as customers quickly pulled deposits. It has since secured a $2-billion lifeline from the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly said Home Capital Group will pay 29.5 million to settle Ontario Securities Commission and class-action lawsuit matters. In fact, the total amount it $30.5 million. read more

201516 NBA Preview The Nuggets Have A Tiny Shot At Being Decent

Kenneth Faried has been a solid-but-not-amazing power forward since his rookie year. Any immediate Nuggets surge would likely require Faried to finally have a breakthrough year, but so far he has been extremely consistent. His true shooting percentage is high, but he doesn’t have a long-distance shot. Note that CARMELO hasn’t seen enough to consider Faried to even be on an upward trend. Again, the hopes of Nuggets fans are cast toward Mudiay. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of hard data about Mudiay to go on, so CARMELO‘s projections for him (and all rookies with only international experience) are based on a separate analysis of previous international players based on their draft position, age and height alone. Also our algorithm doesn’t watch the NBA summer league, where Mudiay impressed. So CARMELO isn’t high on the chances of an unknown 19-year-old point guard turning this team around. A quick glance through the history books suggests the same. Even if Mudiay were Rookie of the Year-quality (apparently he is a betting favorite), that rarely translates into team success. There hasn’t been a ROY winner for a winning team since Amar’e Stoudemire in 2002-03.Here’s what CARMELO has to say about the rest of the Nuggets squad: We’re inaugurating our NBA player projection system, CARMELO, with 2015-16 season previews for every team in the league. Check out the teams we’ve already previewed here. Learn more about CARMELO here. The oft-injured 6-foot-10 (i.e., big) small forward/guard is another unpredictable element for this team. It’s not so much that Danilo Gallinari has ever looked amazing or “due” for a breakout, but his career has been tumultuous enough that it’s hard to say for sure whether his true value is higher or lower than what we’ve seen so far. In other bad news for the Nuggets, his 35.5 percent 3-point shooting last year is the highest among the team’s projected starters. Jameer Nelson seems to be winding down his undistinguished career of burning up minutes for the Nuggets. Once an All-Star for the Orlando Magic (No, literally, once. In 2009.), he’s now good for 20 minutes of fill-in duty if called on. As with Chandler, a substantial role for Nelson would probably be bad news for the Nuggets, because if Mudiay can’t beat him out for minutes, the Nuggets are screwed. Randy Foye currently isn’t projected to start, but is the Nuggets’ most experienced shooting guard and ostensibly their best 3-point shooter (with a career 37.5 percent average from behind the arc). Yet overall he grades out as worse than a replacement player: CARMELO graded him as worth -0.4 wins last year, and ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus is even harsher — rating him 86th out of 95 shooting guards, and worth -1.4 wins. Wilson Chandler is a serviceable forward with some experience playing shooting guard from his time with the Knicks. But he played 85 percent of his minutes at small forward for the Nuggets last year. He will be competing with Gallinari for minutes and shots, so fans should probably be rooting for Chandler’s role to diminish. That is, if you’re hearing Chandler’s name called a lot over the next few years, it likely means things aren’t going well for the Nuggets. Jusuf Nurkic (“The Bosnian Beast”) could be limited by offseason knee surgery (CARMELO also doesn’t account for injuries), and he didn’t play all that much last year (averaged about 18 minutes per game when he wasn’t out for injury). He’s young, big and international — and thus more of an unknown. As I said, if the Nuggets are going to catch some breaks, his improvement may have to be one of them. But there’s not much else to go on. Between the Nuggets trading Timothy Mozgov in early January and Nurkic hurting his ankle in late February, he got a chance to start 22 games — of which the Nuggets lost 17. In 2012-13, the Denver Nuggets won 57 games — their highest win percentage since joining the NBA — and fired head coach George Karl in the ensuing offseason. It has not gone well since. They’ve had two disappointing losing seasons, including last year’s 30-52 campaign. The man they’ve hired to turn it all around: Mike Malone — most recently spotted being fired by the Sacramento Kings. Of course, that firing paved the way for the Kings to hire Karl, meaning the Kings and Nuggets are now coached by each other’s castoffs. (Worst. Trade. Ever?)Surely Carmelo has an opinion on George Karl and this coach swap, but CARMELO does not. It sees a team that hasn’t made many concrete changes since last year, and projects the exact same 30-52 record. The Nuggets’ major offseason move was switching point guards from serviceable but unspectacular Ty Lawson to complete wild card Emmanuel Mudiay. Which is not to say the team doesn’t have a chance: Its young core contributors Kenneth Faried, Danilo Gallinari and Jusuf Nurkic have all shown flashes of potential. So if the Nuggets get a couple of breaks (meaning one or more of these players start to break out), they could be improved. And if they get a lot of breaks, they could even be good.Here’s the team overview:1In the following chart, we assume that in addition to the listed players, some portion of Denver’s minutes will be filled by generic players of “replacement level” quality — that is, the type of players who would be freely available off the waiver wire during the season.

TSMC clocks a 28nm CortexA9 processor at 31GHz

first_imgIt seems like only yesterday the world marveled as HTC and Google created the Nexus One, powered by the first single core 1GHz mobile processor. Since then, the processor arms race has exploded to dual and even quad-core processors in mobile devices. The technology that powers our tiny handheld computers seems to double every time we blink. TSMC, the Taiwanese processor foundry, has revealed to the work their latest processor tests. In these tests, their dual core Cortex-A9 processor was able to exceed 3GHz in a “high performance” situation.Most of the processors we see in smartphones today stay under 1.5GHz in their stock configuration. The 28nm processor from TSMC claims to have a base speed range of 1.5GHz, and can go up as high as 2GHz while in a mobile device. The 3.1GHz configuration is for high performance environments where some form of cooling system would be implemented, perhaps like an Ultrabook or a Smart TV where there’s a little more room for basic cooling systems. TSMC notes that this new 28nm processor performs twice as fast as their 40nm processor when tested under the same conditions.The biggest question when it comes to putting that much power into a device is the power consumption. The tests performed here were purely to see how much power the processor is capable of, there’s no mention anywhere of how much energy was required to maintain something like 3.1GHz. While TSMC is clearly aiming for these powerful processors to be put in tablets and other mobile devices, it will be interesting to see if those processors are still capable of this kind of performance when put into a battery powered device.last_img read more

Thanks to makeshift driftwood sign Coast Guard rescues stranded ATV drivers

first_imgThe search for the missing men started when family members notified the Alaska State Troopers that the pair of ATV drivers were overdue. Then the troopers asked the Coast Guard for aerial support in finding them.Coast Guard Petty Officer Nate Littlejohn is a 17th CG District public affairs specialist based in Anchorage. He said the men were able to make it to a cabin after being forced to abandon their ATVs.“An MH-60 Jayhawk crew from Air Station Kodiak located the men after detecting their heat signatures inside a cabin near Saltery Cove,” Littlejohn said. “As the helicopter approached the cabin the crew could see smoke rising from the chimney and the word ‘HELP’ spelled out spelled out in driftwood in the cabin’s driveway.”Littlejohn said it took two tries to find the men. The first trip out, helicopter crew searched for several hours in low visibility before finding the two ATVs — but not the drivers. But by then the copter was low on fuel so had to pause the search to return to the Air Station to top up.“After refueling they headed out and began double-checking some of the places where they had already looked, which included numerous cabins near the abandoned ATVs,” Littlejohn said. “The helicopter crew used a forward-looking infrared camera on the helicopter to look for human heat signatures and they found the men in a cabin they had already checked earlier in the day. The crew landed in a grassy area about 300 yards from the cabin and took the men aboard.”Littlejohn said the men were in the early stages of hypothermia when they entered the cabin and started a fire to get warm.He said the take-away from this incident is that the men did just what a person in trouble should do if they are out in the weather and facing hypothermia.“They found the closest logical option to warm themselves very quickly. And they also found a way to attract the attention of search crews,” Littlejohn said. “We were just very happy to be able to work with the Alaska State Troopers and bring these folks home to their families.”The two men were reunited with their families on the tarmac at Air Station Kodiak.They told the Coast Guard they became stranded after one ATV had broken down and the other got stuck in the mud. An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak, Alaska, locates two missing men after detecting their heat signatures inside a cabin near Saltery Cove on Kodiak Island.

Liverpool vs Chelsea live streaming stats preview probable XIs and Global TV

first_imgMo Salah will be a key player for the Reds in their game against ChelseaClive Brunskill/Getty ImagesLiverpool is enjoying a highly-successful season in this year’s English Premier League and is on course to claim the trophy after a long gap of 29 years. They now host Chelsea in what may be their last really tough game of the season. A victory here should almost guarantee the title to the Reds.Where to watch?This marquee contest of EPL would begin at 4:30 pm local time and 9:00 pm IST.Star Sports Select 2 & HD 2 will provide live television coverage of the match in India. The live streaming will be available on Hotstar.Who will win?Liverpool is the overwhelming favourites going into this game. They are currently leading the points table, but only have a two points gap over Manchester City, having played one game more than their title rivals. However, the latter team are yet to face Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in their remaining matches. Jorgen Klopp’s team, on the other hand, have a smooth ride ahead. This means a victory for the Reds would bring them within sniffing distance of the title. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to take his team to their first EPL title in 29 yearsJulian Finney/Getty ImagesHowever, the Blues can look towards history to motivate themselves. They haven’t lost at Anfield in their last six matches against Liverpool. Two of them have ended in a victory for the visitors. One has to go back to 2012 for the last time the hosts won against Chelsea at this ground.Even the overall record seems encouraging for Maurizio Sarri-led team. They have been unbeaten in their last five matches against this weekend’s opponents. But this domination would be up against an equally impressive streak — that of Liverpool having remained unbeaten in their last 17 home games in this season’s Premier League.So, it promises to be a thrilling match and one that would see either the Reds strengthening their chances of sealing the EPL title or opening the door for City to comeback.Key PlayersEden Hazard would be the star player for Chelsea. He has been in great form with 16 goals this season, not to mention many others that he has helped set up. Callum Hodson Odoi is likely to be back in the team also. For the hosts, Robert Firmino will be a key player as he has scored seven home goals this season. Mohammed Salah, though, is still the best bet for the Reds to breach Chelsea’s defence.History is on Chelsea’s side while current form favours Liverpool. Something is going to give in this clash of English giants.Probable XIsLiverpool: Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino Chelsea: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso; Jorginho, N’golo Kante, Ross Barkley; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Gonzalo Higuain, Eden HazardGlobal TV ListingsUK: BT SportGermany: DAZNItaly: Sky SportSpain: Movistar+US: NBC SportCanada: TSNAustralia: Optus SportBangladesh: Star Sportslast_img read more
