Dele Alli is best of his age in the world game, claims Tottenham manager

first_imgShare via Email Harry Kane will return in four weeks, say Tottenham, in boost for England Share on Facebook Dele Alli Share on Twitter Mauricio Pochettino Reuse this content “When you compare Dele Alli, 21 years old, with all the players in the world – not only in Europe, in the world – I think he is the best,” Pochettino said. “In his age. In his form. Assists and everything. But, and I don’t understand why, there is still that feeling [to criticise him].“Tell me one 21-year-old that is better than him, and all that he achieves. Maybe you can find similar. But better than him? Maybe I am not objective because he is my player but, for me, he is amazing.”Alli, who scored 22 goals in all competitions for Tottenham last season, has 10 this time, including two in the 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid last November. There have been times this season when his form has been erratic, however.Pochettino’s hyperbole invited the comparison between Alli and some of the game’s other stellar talents in his age bracket. How does he measure up, for example, to Manchester City’s Leroy Sané, who turned 22 in January?“Yes, but this season,” Pochettino said, with reference to Sané. “Last season? Who was the best? Dele, no? The question [about whether he should do more] – I’m a little bit: ‘Wow.’ We expect more from him? Well, we always want more but from the day that he makes his debut for us, he is one of the best in the world. I promise you that I am the most critical person with my players. But it is difficult to criticise Dele.”Pochettino suggested that Alli, who felt tightness in his groin at Bournemouth on Sunday, may not start Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City. “We will see because he’s going to play for the national team [in the upcoming friendlies] and players are not machines,” Pochettino said.Kane damaged ankle ligaments at Bournemouth; the expectation at the club is that he will miss about four weeks. “Of course it’s not a long-term injury, it’s easier to keep your form and that helps you to be fit quicker when you fix your problem,” Pochettino said. “Harry put his leg in the washing machine for the team. Maybe another player says, ‘I’m not going to take that risk.’ But he’s a warrior.“We are going to miss Harry because it’s obvious that he is one of the best. But we are calm and relaxed because we have enough quality to win games. It’s not an excuse for us that Harry is now out for a few weeks.” Share on Pinterest newscenter_img Share on Messenger Topics Mauricio Pochettino has acclaimed Dele Alli as the best player for his age in world football. The Tottenham manager betrayed an element of frustration when asked whether Alli – who turns 22 next month – needs to step up in the injury-enforced absence of the club’s talisman, Harry Kane.Pochettino preferred to talk up Alli’s quality and offer a reminder of what the attacking midfielder has achieved. He has been voted as the PFA’s young player of the year in each of his two full seasons at Spurs following his £5m move from MK Dons in 2015, and has established himself as a first choice in the England team.

Try one of these champagne-filled drinks to ring in 2017 and drown all your sorrows from 2016 away.Jose Cuervo Two-Step MargaritaHow can you not love a margarita? It’s refreshing, citrusy, and whether you’re in Mexico on a beach or braving the cold in New England, it reminds you of warmth, lounging, and for most of us, a lot of fun memories. With New Year 2017 fast approaching, you’ll want something light and bubbly. Luckily for us, the folks at Jose Cuervo came up with a new cocktail that combines the joys of both the margarita and the coveted glass of Champagne. Simply make a Jose Cuervo margarita, which comes in Classic, Pink Lemonade, Grapefruit Tangerine, and White Peach flavors, and top it off with a splash of champagne.Pommery Royal Blue Sky NVIn the South of France, à la Piscine — champagne served with ice — reigns king among the jetsetters who holiday there in the summer. Lucky for us, Pommery created a semi-dry dosage champagne that’s a lot sweeter than the champagne maker’s traditional brut, but that’s because it’s supposed to be served with ice. It also makes for a refreshing New Year’s Eve daytime drink if you happen to be spending it in a warm locale.Champagne CocktailOf course the most classic of cocktails made with champagne is the champagne cocktail. Simply place a sugar cube in a chilled champagne flute, lash it with two or three dashes of bitters (Angostura or Peychaud’s), fill the glass with brut champagne or other, cheaper, bubbly (peasant!), and squeeze a lemon twist on top.Bombay Sapphire French 75The Bombay Sapphire French 75 combines our favorite gin with our favorite kind of wine!

Newly Twinned Section of Highway 104 Officially Opens

first_imgMotorists in Nova Scotia are benefitting from a newly twinned section of Highway 104 between New Glasgow and Pine Tree Road. MLA Jim Boudreau, on behalf of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Bill Estabrooks, and Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, marked the completion of the 7.5-kilometre section of highway today, Sept. 18 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. It opened to traffic on Sept. 2. “This project is an important part of the province’s ongoing efforts to upgrade Highway 104 in the New Glasgow and Antigonish areas,” said Mr. Boudreau. “By working in partnership with the federal government we’re helping our economy, providing good jobs and making our roads safer.” “This project is another example of how the government of Canada, in partnership with the provinces, is taking action to deliver world-class infrastructure for Canadians,” said Mr. MacKay. “This newly twinned highway will improve the efficiency of the highway system in Nova Scotia and the national highway system as a whole.” The total cost of twinning Highway 104 between New Glasgow and Old Pine Tree Road is $22-million, with the federal contributing $5.85 million under the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund and the province funding the remainder of the costs. The paving is part of a $310-million investment in highways this fiscal year, the second-largest highway improvement budget in Nova Scotia’s history. Highway 104 combines with Highway 102 as the primary provincial highway link between Halifax and Sydney. It is also the primary interprovincial highway link with New Brunswick and with Newfoundland and Labrador through the Marine Atlantic ferry services out of Sydney. The provincial and federal governments are co-operating to further twin Highway 104 to Sutherlands River and in the Antigonish area. The improvements will bring additional economic benefits to the residents of Nova Scotia.last_img read more

Explosion knocks out drying complex at Teck coal mine raising safety concerns

first_imgVANCOUVER – The union at a Teck Resources Ltd. coal mine near Sparwood, B.C., says it’s concerned about worker safety following an explosion that knocked out the mine’s coal drying complex last week.Alex Hanson, president of United Steelworkers Local 9346, says someone could have been killed in the incident at the Elkview mine that workers report sent a fireball shooting through vents in the sides and roof of the building.He says there were two smaller but similar events last year in the complex where coal is dried using a natural gas heating system before being loaded on railcars to go to market.In a statement Friday, Vancouver-based Teck reported a “significant pressure event” in the dryer last Wednesday, adding it was investigating how much damage was done and the impact on production. It said no injuries or environmental harm resulted.Teck spokesman Chris Stannell said in an email on Monday Elkview is operating at a reduced production rate but wouldn’t give numbers and had no update on when full output will be restored. He said “nothing is more important” to Teck than worker safety.CIBC World Markets analyst Oscar Cabrera estimates in a report the Elkview incident could cut Teck’s metallurgical coal production this year by 13 per cent to about 23.7 million tonnes, while mining and logistics costs will likely rise by about $1 per tonne and capital spending might increase by $100 million.Hanson says Teck is continuing to mine and clean coal at the facility, but the dryer is offline and it’s unclear when or if the mine will be able to resume shipments.He says about 870 union members work at the mine and there are about 200 non-union workers.(Companies in this story: TSX:TCK.B)last_img read more

Is There Any Stopping Another AlabamaClemson Title Game

gfoster (Geoff Foster, sports editor): After weeks of crunching every possible playoff scenario, we finally got our two matchups for the College Football Playoff: Clemson vs. Notre Dame and Alabama vs. Oklahoma. We have to wait until Dec. 29 to see those games. But in the meantime, we have some 37 bowl games to distract us from our families over the holidays.Let’s start with the big two. Were you surprised by the playoff selections? I think the committee avoided all of the doomsday scenarios as the conference championships played to form.neil (Neil Paine, senior sports writer): Yeah, they mostly got out of the woods compared with some of the scenarios we talked about here. Only thing that would have helped them more would be if either Oklahoma or Ohio State lost, but that didn’t happen.To your question, I wasn’t too shocked about the picks. Much was made of Georgia potentially making it, but it seemed very unlikely that they’d take a two-loss nonconference champ over a pair of one-loss conference champs — even if UGA was probably better talent-wise. I was really only slightly surprised they took Oklahoma over the Buckeyes. If you look at the power ratings like Football Power Index or Simple Rating System, or something like ESPN’s Strength of Record, Ohio State was the superior team. But the committee probably held OSU’s strength of schedule against it — as well as that bad loss to Purdue and the near-loss against Maryland.sara.ziegler (Sara Ziegler, general editor): It helped for the Sooners that, in the Big 12 title game, they beat the only team to have beaten them.neil: Yes — you definitely heard the phrase “they beat every team on the schedule” thrown around.sara.ziegler: And I feel like the committee members had Ohio State’s near-loss to Maryland on their minds.(I know I did.)Josh Planos (Josh Planos, contributor): I wasn’t all that surprised either. Three were shoe-ins, and if the playoff format has taught us anything it’s that most of college football’s elite programs hog all the playoff spots, and the committee will do everything in its power to eschew controversy. Ohio State certainly wasn’t lacking in that department this season.gfoster: Oddly, I think blowing out Michigan in such ugly fashion actually hurt Ohio State, because most people seemed to write off that game (rightly) as UM being overrated rather than Ohio State beating a team ranked fourth in the country.neil: And yet the Wolverines were allowed to (easily) be Notre Dame’s most signature win… 🤔🤔🤔sara.ziegler: Notre Dame getting its special dispensation, as per usual.neil: It was funny during the selection show to hear the note about how Vegas would have the Irish as underdogs against every other team in the playoff conversation (except UCF, I guess).Josh Planos: During Northwestern’s third-quarter scoring run on Saturday night, while Gus Johnson was firing off catch phrases, you could almost hear the committee scratching out the Buckeyes. Would a 40-point win in the Big Ten championship game even have gotten Ohio State over Georgia?gfoster: Last year, if it hadn’t lost to Stanford, Notre Dame could have easily finished the season with one loss and would have not have made the playoff. In that spot, not having a conference championship would have really worked against the Irish because they wouldn’t have had another opportunity for a signature win. But this year, we see the advantage for ND. Win all your regular season games, as easy as they may be, and you are in.But likewise, Northwestern didn’t really give Ohio State much of a resume boost. So … it’s Wisconsin’s fault for being lousy I guess.sara.ziegler: But of course, Geoff, that’s only the case for ND — not for any other non-Power Five teams. (😢 UCF)gfoster: UCF needs to boost its strength of schedule if it wants to be taken seriously.sara.ziegler: For sure. And I don’t think the Knights should have gotten in. But it’s not like Notre Dame’s schedule was off the charts.gfoster: For all we knock ND, they are playing teams like NC State, USC, Syracuse — all of whom would be one of the hardest games on UCF’s schedule.neil: How can they improve their SOS, short of joining a better conference? (Or is that basically it?)I don’t think any real power team wants to play them nonconference. No upside there, only downside.gfoster: You could get a mid-tier Power-Five team that would take them at home, no? When Notre Dame was playing Michigan in Week 1, UCF had UConn — quite possibly the worst team in FBS.neil: Defensively, at least.sara.ziegler: Though that UConn game was a conference game.Josh Planos: They followed it up by playing South Carolina State, too.sara.ziegler: They scheduled North Carolina, but that was canceled because of the hurricane.gfoster: North Carolina is also terrible.sara.ziegler: And that’s the other problem: You can schedule a mid-tier Power-Five team, but you can’t guarantee they’ll be good.neil: Or if you’re Notre Dame, you can schedule prestige Power 5 teams and not know if they’ll be good.sara.ziegler: UCF did schedule and beat Pitt, which was good enough to get trampled by Clemson in the ACC title game.gfoster: Truth is, maybe UCF does need to move conferences? TCU managed to do that when it was facing similar problem.sara.ziegler: Or we could solve this with an eight-team playoff!neil: This.^^gfoster: Well, yes.sara.ziegler: Solve it for this year, anyway.LOLgfoster: NO ONE is against that.neil: Except conference and university presidents.gfoster: As for this year, this is the first time both playoff games have double-digit spreads. Which falls in line with some lopsided lines in the conference championships. Any reason to like the underdogs here?Or is this destined for Clemson vs. Alabama again?neil: Maybe if Tua is still hurt? (He won’t be. And they will destroy Oklahoma.)sara.ziegler: And it’s hard to see Notre Dame doing much against Clemson.neil: Clemson vs. Bama Part IV is pretty redundant at this point. But at least there’s a chance it doesn’t play out according to chalk. Under the old BCS system, they’d automatically be slotted in at 1-2. (Although that would have been very uncontroversial.)gfoster: It’s hard to see any team doing much against the Tigers’ defense. Look at the line of Pitt QB Kenny Pickett in the ACC title game: 4 of 16 for … wait for it … 8 YARDS.That’s 0.5 yards per pass attempt. (538 math skills, folks.)Josh Planos: Yeah, we don’t know about Tua’s health. Oklahoma’s offense puts up video game numbers, so you’d expect Alabama to need to bring at least something to the table in that regard. Trevor Lawrence is playing the best secondary he’s seen all season. Brian Kelly is probably pretty motivated that his team’s recent struggles were broadcast on a Showtime series.sara.ziegler: If Tua plays, you gotta think he’ll go to town on the Oklahoma defense.Will he actually have to play all four quarters? LOLJosh Planos: Have we ever seen the likely two top vote-getters in the Heisman race square off in the postseason? Is this the best QB battle in terms of single-season QBR that we’ve ever seen? Each is on pace to set the single-season record (though that will change, I’m sure).gfoster: It might not change for Tua against that Oklahoma defense that gave up 700 yards to West Virginia.The Sooners also might be without their best receiver: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, which would be a significant blow to Kyler Murray.neil: Josh, we almost got 1-2 Heisman QBs in the 2008 title game: Tebow vs. Bradford.(But Tebow finished 3rd in the voting.)(Colt McCoy finished 2nd????)sara.ziegler: Wowgfoster: If we had an eight-team playoff, my guess is that it would be Alabama-UCF (lol), Clemson-Washington (I’m thinking they must include a token Pac-12 in this new world), Notre Dame-Ohio State, Oklahoma-Georgia.neil: What would the line be on that Tide-vs.-Knights game?gfoster: 28.5Josh Planos: Without McKenzie Milton? 30+neil: Isn’t that the same line they gave the Buffalo Bills vs. Alabama?gfoster: The Bills are like the sixth worst team in the NFL now. Shows how misguided those types of stories are.sara.ziegler: Would a Pac-12 team even make an eight-team playoff this year? The committee had Michigan at No. 7.Which is kind of amazing — another two-loss Power-Five team above poor UCF.neil: I would guess an eight-team playoff would have an automatic berth for a Pac-12 champ.sara.ziegler: There’s obviously no way to do this without some controversy.neil: Then we can get into those fun March Madness arguments about “at-large” bids.gfoster: Right … and one token non-Power Five. (Or in this case two, because of ND.)neil: Notre Dame is Power Five! (According to our tier system.)gfoster: Let’s talk about the other bowl games. Any others you are particularly excited for?neil: UGA-Texas should be fun, I think.Josh Planos: Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for the nostalgia of Big 8 football, but Missouri vs. Oklahoma State. FPI is really high on the four-loss Tigers (like, higher on the Tigers than UCF and LSU), and each of Oklahoma State’s past five games have been decided by no more than 7 points. If nothing else, there will be a lot of points.sara.ziegler: Missouri never should have left the Big 12.neil: I always forget they aren’t in the Big 12 now.sara.ziegler: Wisconsin vs. Miami in the Pinstripe Bowl is kind of a fun throwback.gfoster: That should be called the Pinstripe Lack Of Motivation Bowl.sara.ziegler: HahaJosh Planos: Fun is an interesting word.Is this the underachieving bowl? And did any team underachieve more than Wisconsin? All we heard throughout the preseason was that Jonathan Taylor could win the Heisman, they returned the entire offensive line, and Alex Hornibrook was returning for a 12th year of eligibility.gfoster: In the bowl games, it’s always fun to identify the games where one team is really pumped to be there and the other has zero interest. For instance, Purdue vs. Auburn in the Music City.You think Auburn is getting up for that?Josh Planos: If they couldn’t get up to bully UCF last year, they’re not getting up to try and corral Rondale Moore.neil: Also, the biggest early spread in a lower-tier bowl might be the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. ESPN has BYU as a 14-point favorite over Western MichiganI always root for the Directional Michigans though.gfoster: Sad that Alabama-Oklahoma might be the most lopsided bowl game.Also a 14-point spread.sara.ziegler: I’m actually pretty interested in how UCF does against LSU.LSU is a good proxy for a playoff team, since the Tigers did OK against Bama (at least early on) and pounded Georgia.gfoster: I actually think LSU will get up for UCF, mainly because of what happened to Auburn and all this chatter.neil: Although I wish UCF had gotten one of the just-missed-it playoff contenders like UGA or Ohio State, just for experiment’s sake.sara.ziegler: Yeah, that would have been better.Though maybe it’s all moot with no Milton.neil: True. It wouldn’t have settled the debate.gfoster: LSU is actually still playing that game against Texas A&M. They are in their 134th overtime.sara.ziegler: 🏈 💤gfoster: But Neil, didn’t we see kinda see that the year they let Hawaii play UGA?neil: Hah, yes I was thinking of that exactly. Poor Colt Brennan.Josh Planos: Should’ve known that a haircut like this didn’t stand a chance.gfoster: OMGsara.ziegler: Why … would … you … do … that?gfoster: He even has the little island that they don’t let anyone on.neil: The run-n-shoot makes you do crazy things.gfoster: OK, what’s the worst bowl game.This answer is two parts.Worst name and worst game.neil: Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla BowlCan anything top that?Short of bringing back the Poulan Weed Eater Bowl?sara.ziegler: I love the Boca Raton Bowl.Congrats, teams! You’re going to … Boca Raton!gfoster: That’s the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl, Sara.Josh Planos: Best bowl experience: The Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl, FIU vs. Toledo.Last season, folks could bring beer into the stadium. There were also archery opportunities near the concession stand.I apologize for not answering the question, Geoff.neil: I do miss the Popeye’s sponsorship for that one. Gave us an excuse to pick up fried chicken at Times Square and eat it in the office.sara.ziegler: As if you needed an excuse for that, Neil.neil: (Sorry again about the spicy tenders, Geoff.)gfoster: The DXL Frisco Bowl is a rare short name that is terrible.Jared Birmingham Bowl? It sounds like its named after someone named Jared Birmingham.neil: I think “Jared Birmingham” is UCF’s backup QB.Josh Planos: LOLgfoster: I will say. I’m a big fan of the Cheez-It BowlI wish I had a bowl of Cheez-Its right now.sara.ziegler: We didn’t talk about the best game of the weekend.neil: Iowa State!sara.ziegler: A dominant (not at all) win over powerhouse (not at all) Drake!Josh Planos: I think Washington State could beat Iowa State by 40 points. Or the Cyclones could ride the Matt Campbell relevancy train to a 13-10 win.sara.ziegler: That’s quite a range.neil: And nothing in between.sara.ziegler: LOLneil: I’m also kinda intrigued by the Peach Bowl: Michigan vs. Florida. Feels like that is a constant matchup in the tier of bowls just below the prestige level.That has happened in many Citrus Bowls, for instance.Josh Planos: How. Do. These. Teams. Keep. Playing.gfoster: Harbaugh’s only bowl win at Michigan was a romp of Florida. And Lloyd Carr’s final win was an upset of Tim Tebow Florida.neil: And don’t forget about the 2003 Outback Bowl!sara.ziegler: Who can forget?neil: Grossman vs. Navarre.gfoster: I’m excited for West Virginia vs. Syracuse in the Camping World. That feels like a 100-point game. I also am oddly interested in Boca Raton bowl! UAB is an amazing story. They won Conference USA just a few years removed from having their football program eliminated.It’s at this time where I’d normally ask for predictions. But I imagine no one is picking an upset in the first two playoff games?So let’s skip to the final predictions.sara.ziegler: It’s pretty hard to pick against Alabama.neil: Alabama 27, Clemson 24sara.ziegler: Clemson has been dominant, obviously, ever since squeaking by Syracuse. But Bama is just too good.Alabama 30, Clemson 18gfoster: Clemson 35, Alabama 28This isn’t (entirely) me being the contrarian. I think the Crimson Tide are kinda vulnerable to an upset. They start slow every game (tied with Citadel at halftime, remember) and it’s going to catch up to them at some point. Clemson defense can keep Tua off the field enough to win.(Assuming they beat ND, who I think will make a game of it against Clemson.)Josh Planos: Alabama over Oklahoma 35-14Clemson over Notre Dame 21-7Alabama over Clemson 28-14sara.ziegler: I guess there’s nothing left to do but watch the games! read more

Gawker Acquires Hispanic Media Company Guanabee

first_imgGawker Media, the online-only publisher that owns brands such as Jezebel, Gizmodo and, of course, Gawker, has taken a strategic move to expand its network into the Hispanic marketplace with the acquisition of Guanabee Media.The deal gives Gawker all assets surrounding Guanabee.com, which includes the brand’s Anyguey vertical, which focuses on sports, gadgets and women, and the Barbara vertical, which focuses on fashion, beauty and relationships for Latinas. With this acquisition Gawker Media will extend its properties to Spanish-speaking audiences worldwide—in January of next year, the company will also launch Gizmodo en Español.Here, FOLIO: catches up with Daniel Mauser, (pictured) publisher and founder of Guanabee Media and Gawker Media’s new head of International Business, Latin America. Though Mauser declined to share the financial terms of this acquisition, he did shed some light on what this move means for his brands and Gawker’s Hispanic reach overall. FOLIO: How did this acquisition come about?Daniel Mauser: Guanabee has been a long-term partner of Gawker. In fact, when we created Guanabee it was inspired by Gawker. I’ve known Nick Denton, the founder of Gawker, for sometime now and back in the spring we started discussing Gawker’s new plans and the evolution of the company, which included the development of their new discussion platform, Kinja. The platform puts an emphasis on empowering users and allowing them to create content and interact with editors in a closer way. Nick said one of the things Gawker wanted to do was extend the platform all over the world, including Latin America. He also said he wanted to extend Gizmodo in Spanish because it’s a huge market—there are 500 million Spanish speakers worldwide. He asked if I was interested in helping out with this endeavor and bringing on Guanabee as part of it. We at Guanabee have acquired the knowledge that will allow us to successfully attract Hispanics and Spanish speakers now that we are working at Gawker, particularly for Gizmodo en Español. Both Guanabee and Gawker attract a young 18-34 year old demographic. That’s how the discussions happened and how the deal came about—it wasn’t forced, it was a good fit so it happened naturally.FOLIO: Can you discuss Guanabee’s business model and what your online footprint looks like?Mauser: Our reach is over 400,000 monthly uniques and about 85 percent of those are Hispanics within the U.S. Our initial model for Guanabee was to provide an alternative to the traditional Latino outlets that existed at the time. Our business model is supported by advertising, currently we’re working with Macy’s to reach young Hispanics. We work very closely with our advertisers—we’re really partners in trying to figure out how to put the right message in front of our audience. FOLIO: Going forward, what will we see from this venture with Gawker? Will Guanabee be largely independent?Mauser: My position within the company will be to expand Gawker’s properties into Spanish, starting with Gizmodo en Español. We’re currently hiring staff and launching the site under the new Kinja platform and we’ll be the first to launch with the new platform. We’ll do it as a separate site and as an offering for sponsors looking to attract Spanish speakers.  Guanabee will be integrated with the Kinja platform in the beginning of 2013 as well. Guanabee will remain with the current writers that it has and follow the same tone. There is a possibility that we might extend it into Spanish as well but things are still up in the air. The focus right now is extending Gizmodo to Spanish speakers. Within Gawker’s properties, they’ve always shared stories that are relevant. In the past with Guanabee and other media partners there have been opportunities to share stories so I can see that continuing as well, as long as it’s relevant for the audience and it’s original. We’re very excited to be part of this company—I’ve seen the work that Gawker has done so I know what it can do for Guanabee, and I know what we can do for them and our sponsors moving forward.

Alaskas budget easier to swallow with ice cream and beer

first_imgEconomist Gunnar Knapp and Cliff Groh, Chair of Alaska Common Ground, talk to a crowd about Alaska’s budget at McGivney’s a sports bar and grill in Juneau, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)This story is by both Elizabeth Jenkins and Rashah McChesney for Alaska’s Energy Desk. The Alaska legislature has a lot on its plate trying to fix the state’s multi-billion dollar budget deficit, and a couple of budget experts are adding to the menu. They’re inviting the public to weigh-in over ice cream and beer.Listen nowMore than 20 people are crowded into Coppa — a local ice cream shop in Juneau — to learn about what’s happening with Alaska’s budget. People dig small plastic spoons into flavors like “fiscal crunch” and “sustainable blueberry budget.”Carole Triem is here with a friend. And while the ice cream doesn’t make the fiscal situation taste any sweeter, she said her main reason for coming is to learn.“I feel like I should know more about the budget than I do. Especially as a state employee because it affects my livelihood,” Triem said.Jobs like Triem’s could be on the chopping block, as the Alaska legislature looks at ways to reduce state spending. There’s a more than $3 billion hole to fill this year, and with declining oil production and weak revenue, Cliff Groh said we can’t keep living like we have.Cliff Groh, Chair of Alaska Common Ground, talks to a crowd about Alaska’s budget at Coppa, an ice cream and coffee shop, in Juneau, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Groh is the chair of Alaska Common Ground, a public policy nonprofit and a former assistant to the commissioner of the Department of Revenue. He’s here presenting with Gunnar Knapp, an economist. You could say Groh’s role is to simplify the jargon of the budget crisis. That’s his mission.“Alaska’s in deep kimchi and all the bland food options have left town,” Groh said. “The choices are spicy and not the easy meatloaf and mashed potatoes. People need to think clearly about the difficult choices we face.”Groh said that means the options to fix Alaska’s budget are not that appealing: deep cuts to state infrastructure, creating a state income or sales tax, repealing the oil and gas tax credit program. We can’t just pick one.“But those are the kinds of choices that Alaska faces now because the savings are running out very fast,” Groh said.Groh said we’re eventually going to have to eat our kimchi. He and Knapp give this same spiel to their audience for a over an hour. After everyone leaves, they make their way over to McGivney’s where they’ll do it again.A budget conversation and free ice cream drew a crowd to Coppa, an ice cream and coffee shop, in Juneau, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)In a back room at the downtown sports bar, Knapp and Groh pick up their informal budget conversation with an after-hours crowd.  They aren’t shy about telling other people to get comfortable.“By the way, those who just came in, get some beer, there’s beer, enjoy the beer,” Knapp tells a crowd of about 15 people.Knapp kicks off his shoes and reclines on a bar stool while giving the crowd a broad overview of the budget. The state’s dependence on oil money has left lawmakers reeling — trying to figure out where to cut and how deep. So far, Knapp said, they’ve been relying on savings.The crowd is a mix of lawmakers, legislative aids, community members and even a former Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Revenue. And while the conversation is relaxed, they’re grappling with some difficult concepts. A woman in the crowd asks if we’re all screwed. Should she stick it out or leave the state?“I mean, I’m fundamentally an optimist about Alaska,” Knapp said. “And I think that we’ve got a lot of resources, there’s a lot of oil still in the state.”It’s those same concepts that lawmakers struggle with by day at the state capital just a few blocks away. Groh says the competing philosophies of cutting further, capping spending, taxing Alaskans and dipping into the Permanent Fund, make it difficult for for legislators to work together.“And Alaska’s political situation surrounding the fiscal problems are sort of like what you might see in an old spaghetti western or Quentin Tarantino film,” Groh said.A standoff.Groh said Alaskans have been very good at announcing what they don’t want. Now they need to think about what they will accept. And sometimes a scoop of ice cream or a swig of beer can help that reality go down easier.Correction: This story previously stated that Cliff Groh was a former Commissioner of the Department of Revenue. He was a former assistant to the Commissioner.last_img read more

Should foster kids know when the state uses their benefits

first_imgThe Nesbett Courthouse in downtown Anchorage.Some children and youth in foster care are eligible to receive Social Security benefits, but the young people and their families don’t always know the money is available. Instead, the state applies for the benefits and puts the funds toward paying for foster care services. Now a lawsuit is asking if the state needs to notify families and guardians before it starts taking the money.Listen nowAbout 160 foster kids in Alaska are entitled to social security benefits because they have a disability or one of their parents have died. But most of the time, the money doesn’t go to the individual child, it goes straight to the state.“What smells bad about this is the state seems to be trying to gain federal money that it isn’t necessarily entitled to,” Superior Court Judge William Morse said while listening to oral arguments in the case in late February.“It seems like you are trying to take money from a child,” Morse told the attorney for the state.The US Supreme Court ruled that it is legal for state agencies to receive federal benefits on behalf of foster children and use the money to pay for the kids’ care while they are in custody. The question is – can they legally do it in Alaska without providing any notice?If a child’s guardian ad litem or attorney knew the child could get between $700 and $2,000 per month in federal benefits, they could try to find a relative or another person to be a private payee. Then, the money wouldn’t go toward the care the child is already entitled to from the state.“You could use these social security monies for tutoring, for therapy,” Attorney Jim Davis argued before the judge. “To do the things in life that your kids probably do and my kids probably do – go to the state fair, go to Alyeska, have an iPhone.”Davis is representing foster children who are eligible for benefits. In some cases, the money could be set aside in a trust to be used for education or medical needs when the child ages out of foster care.Assistant attorney general Leah Farzin argued the state is not required to notify anyone about the potential benefits and providing notice would be a burden.“We’re opposed because there’s no obligation to do so,” Farzin told the judge. “The state is not doing anything wrong. And therefore, the state being ordered to do something to correct a problem that doesn’t exist is unfair.”“To who?” Morse asked.“To the state,” Farzin replied.“It’s unfair to you to have to add a paragraph to the GAL (guardian ad litem) appointment order?”Judge Morse said notifying people would not be a burden on the state, and could speed up the application process for the benefits by reducing the amount of research the Social Security Administration needs to do before designating a payee. That would get money to the kids faster.The state contracts with a private company for about $10,000 per year to apply for benefits on behalf of the children.Farzin also argued that using a child’s federal benefits to pay for their time in foster care frees up more state resources for all of the children who are in custody.“When the state is the payee, all foster children get more resources,” Farzin said.But Judge Morse questioned if this is fair to the child who is entitled to the money.“The child loses money if the state is the payee when there could have been a private payee,” Morse said.According to the Office of Children’s Services, if the state spends less on a child’s monthly care than it receives in benefits, it returns the extra money to the Social Security Administration. The SSA holds the money until a new payee is assigned to the child.The judge has up to six months to issue a ruling.UPDATE: As of November 2018, attorney Jim Davis reports there has still not been a ruling in the case.last_img read more

US urges increased caution for Americans visiting Hong Kong

first_imgHONG KONG: The U.S. government on Thursday stepped up its warnings to travellers to Hong Kong because of increasing violence surrounding pro-democracy protests in the Chinese city. The State Department’s Level 2 travel advisory issued Thursday urges “increased caution in Hong Kong due to civil unrest” and tells travellers to avoid demonstrations and to “exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings or protests.” The protests were sparked two months ago by proposed extradition legislation that could have seen suspects sent to mainland China where they could face torture and unfair politicized trial. Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us They have since morphed into calls for broader democratic reforms in the former British colony, along with the resignation of Chief Executive Carrie Lam and investigations into alleged police abuse of force. The territory’s crucial travel industry has suffered as tourists put off their visits, with Australia, Ireland, Britain and Japan have also issued travel advisories to their citizens. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us Hong Kong police say a total of 589 people have been arrested in the protests since June 9, ranging in age from 13 to 76. They face charges including rioting, which allows for prison terms of up to 10 years. Protests have seen police firing tear gas, rubber bullets and other projectiles, with demonstrators responding with sharpened metal sticks, lobbed bricks, petrol bombs and carts full of burning debris. Advertise With Us On several occasions, protesters have also been attacked by unknown persons believed to be linked to organized crime groups, while police took little action to stop them. The central government in Beijing has so far has not visibly intervened in the situation, though in editorials and public remarks it has condemned demonstrators and protest organizers as criminals, clowns and “violent radicals” and alleged that they have been inflamed by politicians from the U.S., Taiwan and elsewhere. On Wednesday, the head of Beijing’s Cabinet office responsible for the territory said Hong Kong was facing its “most severe situation” since its handover from British rule in 1997 and the central government was currently considering further measures. Hong Kong was returned to China under the framework of “one country, two systems,” which promised the city political, civil and economic freedoms not allowed under Communist Party rule on the mainland. However, many Hong Kong residents feel Beijing has been increasingly encroaching on their freedoms.last_img read more

Laundry Love Gives the Gift of Clean Clothes

first_imgBy Tyra Wilkes, Special to the AFROLaundry Love is an organization, which started in order to cover the laundry costs of low-income and vagrant individuals and families across the nation. Since originating in Ventura, California 14 years ago, over 750,000 people have benefited from the initiative. The idea spiraled from a simple conversation with a man named T-Bone, wherein he was asked, “How can we come alongside your life in a way that would matter to you?” He responded, “If I had clean clothes I think people would treat me like a human being.”Since, Laundry Love has spread throughout the country, and is now in Washington, D.C.Have you ever been running down an escalator only to see a woman in a wheelchair at the bottom? Or thrown away a half eaten sandwich and later seem a homeless child? It’s in those moments that we often feel most grateful. It’s in those moments that we wonder in what ways can we help. In order to see change happen, Laundry Love allows people to work from the inside-out by combining our direct resources to help our neighbors with the bare minimum.During a routine Laundry Love day at a local laundromat in California, NPR spoke with volunteers and recipients of the organization who expressed their gratitude and spoke of the benefits on both ends. From volunteers who are able to donate time and resources, to women like Giovanna Cortez, a mother of three who fell on hard times after losing her job, Laundry Love has helped many.David Clarke said Laundry Love has helped him financially and socially. “It gives me the time to come and socialize with some nice upbeat people, and feel a little bit better about myself.For most, waking up in a warm bed and driving to the workplace is routine, but for others, simple things like having a clean shirt aren’t easy to attain. If you know anyone who can benefit from Laundry Love, here are the participating laundromats in the Washington, D.C area:Good Hope Laundromat1603 Good Hope Rd SE, Washington D.C., 20020First Sunday of the month, 1:00-3:00pmSanka Perera—(202) 450-2962Laundry World3039 Graham RoadFalls Church, Virginia, 22042One Saturday a month, 8:30-11:30am(No fixed schedule—email nativitylaundrylove@gmail.com for specific dates)Interested residents can also serve as sponsors for a designated Laundry Love day.  To learn more about Laundry Love visit laundrylove.org.last_img read more
