Your Personal Election and Your Personal Economy

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now It doesn’t matter who wins the Presidency of the United States. Your personal leadership counts for a lot more than who leads the United States. And your personal economy has very little to do with the economy of the United States. With all the hoopla around this election, you should make some elections of your own.Elect YourselfThere is an election being held every day, and your vote is the only vote that counts.You can elect to believe that your fate hinges on who is elected to hold what must be the worst job in the world, the Presidency of the United States. Or you can elect to embrace the truth: you will succeed or fail to produce the results and the life you want based on your beliefs, your efforts, and your results. President be damned.You can elect to get up early each day, make a list of your most important outcomes, and go to town on that list. Or you can elect to blame your poor results on factors that are completely out of your control. One choice leads to certain success. The other leads to something less than that.You can elect to develop yourself both personally and professionally so that you can become a greater economic engine, creating more and more value as you grow. Or you can vote not to grow and, by doing so, limit the value you create—and the value that you claim for creating it. One vote builds your personal economy; the other destroys it.The Spoils Go to Those Who VoteRegardless of who is elected, those that choose to do better in the next four years will do better. Period. They are electing to succeed in spite of any perceived external factors, including the shifting political winds. Those that elect to look for an improvement in their life from something—or someone—outside of themselves will fare no better than they have in the past. That’s what makes your personal election more important than any other election in which you will participate. Even your vote for President.Go ahead and vote. It’s your right and your duty as a citizen to participate in the experiment that is this democratic republic. But once you’ve cast your ballot in favor of whatever flavor of elected officials suit your political philosophy and worldview, go ahead and elect to do everything necessary to produce the life and the results that you really want. Make a better election.last_img read more

Younis Khan apologises to PCB for misconduct in domestic tournament, escapes ban

first_imgPakistan’s leading Test run-getter and former captain Younis Khan was let off with a warning after he apologised for his misconduct in last week’s umpiring row in the Pakistan Cup national One-Day tournament.Younis, 38, was fined 50 per cent of his match fee and faced a ban of three to five matches for not attending the disciplinary hearing and withdrawing from the tournament.He apologised for his behaviour in a call with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan.A PCB news release confirmed the phone call and apology.Younis was angry at several umpiring decisions in his team’s two matches, but denied misbehaving towards the umpires.”I had objected to a no-ball which was above chest height and that’s all,” Younis told a private Pakistani TV channel.”I have given assurances that I will play the remaining matches so the matter ends here.”Younis is Pakistan’s highest Test run-scorer, with 9,116 runs in 104 Tests.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

Anurag Thakur blasts ICC chairman Shashank Manohar, accuses him of leaving BCCI in lurch

first_imgBoard of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Anurag Thakur has hit back at International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman Shashank Manohar, accusing him jumping off a “sinking ship” when he was needed the most and now “arm-twisting” the very board which gave him the platform to become an ICC chief. (ICC forced to withdraw two-tier Test proposal)UGLY BATTLE In what is turning out to be an ugly fight between world cricket’s richest board and the game’s governing body, Thakur, who stopped short of threatening a pullout from next year’s Champions Trophy in England, time and again reiterated that such treatment should not be meted out to the global leader in cricket.”It doesn’t matter if I am disappointed with the ICC Chairman’s statement or not. I have to convey the feelings of the BCCI members. I am the President of the board. The members feel today that when the board needed Mr Manohar as the President, he left the boat in the middle of things. It was like a captain of the ship leaving it to sink before the other members. He was expected to deliver. Yes, BCCI should look after its interests, that is why we are here for,” Thakur said on Saturday at the sidelines of Duleep Trophy final in Greater Noida. (Two-tier Test scheme should have been shot down early: Anurag Thakur)’MANOHAR HAS FORGOT BCCI’Thakur said that Manohar’s main aim was to get the top ICC job and after having achieved it, he forgot about his home board.advertisement”Certain amendments were made in the ICC constitution. Manohar was on the board to make these changes. As a President of the BCCI, he should have taken into confidence all the members of the board, which he did not. The amendments were made and he became the Independent Chairman. At the back of his mind, he had an idea that he was looking for a position to establish himself and thus made the amendments. Today when he says he has nothing to do with the BCCI, he should realise that it is the same BCCI which has given him the platform to become an ICC Chairman. And, if he continues to say that then remember that BCCI is one of the 105 members and one of the most important stakeholders of the game,” he said.He also responded to comments made by Manohar about the significance of Test cricket.”Look at the ICC Chairman’s statement. He is saying who will watch a Test match. Then what were the ICC members doing in a meeting in Dubai about the future of Test cricket? Why were they discussing it? Mr Manohar should definitely make a clarification of that statement. I think it raises a big question mark on the future of Test cricket if it is coming from the ICC Chairman. On the other hand, BCCI is playing the highest number of Test matches in a year, home and away. So, our intentions are very clear. We are open about changes, we have and will continue to experiment with the pink ball. We are not in a hurry to implement pink ball,” he said. (New selectors to be appointed post interviews, no role for CAC: Anurag Thakur)THAKUR QUESTIONS FUNDS ALLOCATION TO ECBICC allocating a considerable amount to England and Wales Cricket Board for the conduct of next year’s Champions Trophy has irked BCCI, something which was highlighted by Thakur.”BCCI can’t just limit itself to look after board’s interest. We are the global leaders and look after interests of world cricket as well. That is why we have raised the issue when the rest kept mum that we want to go through Champions Trophy budget and make  a comparison as well. Compare the World Cup with the Champions Trophy. We had 56 matches, Champions Trophy has close to 16 matches. We had eight venues, they have only three. It (World T20) was a 49-day event while Champions Trophy is only for 20 days. So, look at the cost. The per match cost is three times higher. BCCI has raised this because we want every single penny saved. It will be a penny saved for everyone, not just BCCI but all the 105 countries,” he saidThe BCCI president said India could’ve benefited from the two-tier system by joining hands with Australia and England but decided against it.”We stood by countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe and to an extent, like the West Indies. Those countries could have suffered, we want to stand by them. BCCI has always helped those countries who are financially poor and we will continue to do so in future as well. Also, as far as global telecast rights issue is concerned, if England and Australia are struggling to sell their TV rights, it has nothing to do with the BCCI. We have always said that we will work in the interest of global cricket.”advertisementON INDIA’S PARTICIPATION IN CHAMPIONS TROPHYHe said that only time will decide India’s participation in 2017 Champions Trophy.”Let the time come. BCCI is strong enough to take tough decisions. It is a hypothetical question whether we will pull out or not. But, if BCCI has to pull out in its and global cricket’s interest, we need to look at various areas,” he said.ICC TRYING TO SIDELINE BCCIThakur added that the new ICC regime is trying to sideline the BCCI.”With the Lodha recommendations here and change in the ICC, we are being arm twisted both at home and away. The situation of BCCI which was a global leader till the recommendations of the Lodha Committee. Now, with the new ICC regime, they are trying to sideline BCCI, one of the best stakeholders in global cricket today. Just by one recommendation, we are not taken seriously. I we need to look at the overall sports infrastructure in the country. It is only BCCI which has not taken a single penny from the government. We don’t look at government funding and look at the way we are treated in this country,” he said.last_img read more

Falcons Pound Hapless Bucs, 56-14

first_imgATLANTA — Devin Hester high-stepped into the NFL record book. Matt Ryan had as many touchdown passes as incompletions. Julio Jones made a spectacular over-the-shoulder catch tumbling into the end zone.The result: One of the biggest wins in Atlanta Falcons history.Hester set an NFL record with his 20th return for a touchdown, Ryan threw for 286 yards and three TDs, and Jones hauled in nine passes for 161 yards and a couple of scores to lead the Falcons past the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 56-14 on Sept. 17.  “It was a fun night,” Ryan said.The Falcons (2-1) led 35-0 before the Buccaneers (0-3) picked up a first down. Ryan and the other offensive starters left after Steven Jackson’s 3-yard touchdown run made it 49-0 before the midway point of the third quarter.Atlanta had a stunning 56-0 lead heading to the fourth quarter. Tampa Bay scored two meaningless touchdowns to avoid the worst loss in franchise history.“I’ve never been in a game quite like this,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said.It was the second-largest win in the Falcons’ 48-year history, eclipsed only by 62-7 rout of New Orleans in 1973. It was only the fifth time Atlanta has won by as many as 40 points.Hester and Jones provided the signature moments.With the Falcons already ahead 28-0, Hester took a punt at his own 44, found a seam up the middle of the field and easily zipped around the last man with a chance to tackle him, punter Michael Koenen.The 56-yard play was Hester’s 20th career return for a touchdown, breaking the mark he shared with former Falcons star Deion Sanders.Sanders, now a television analyst, watched Hester’s return from the sideline at the Georgia Dome. Hester high-stepped the last 10 yards are so, his left hand bobbing behind his ear — a tribute to Prime Time’s signature move.“It’s tough to break the record of the guy who is my No. 1 mentor,” Hester said. “I’m kind of emotional right now.”Sanders didn’t mind a bit. He smiled broadly and waved to the crowd when he was shown on the video board, the Hall of Famer’s record falling in the stadium he once proclaimed as “my house.”Jones could’ve made the same claim after his superb 40-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter.Turning toward the sideline, he looked first over his left shoulder for the pass, turned his body when realized it was coming over his right shoulder, juggled the ball a bit as he tumbled into the end zone, cradling it under his arm just before slammed the turf, getting both feet down.“Just a hell of a catch,” Ryan said. “He’s a special talent.”Coming off three interceptions in a loss at Cincinnati, Ryan bounced back with a 21-of-24 showing that set a team record for completion percentage (.875). He also hooked up with Jones on an 8-yard touchdown strike, as well as Harry Douglas on a 3-yarder.“No one ever doubted that Matt Ryan would come back and have a good game after his game last week,” Smith said.Hester, in his first year with the Falcons, also had a 20-yard touchdown run on an end around, not to mention one of the better defensive plays of the night.After the Bucs stripped the ball away from a Falcons receiver, Hester stripped it right back and fell on the fumble himself to keep possession for Atlanta. “He channeled some of his inner defense from his college days,” Ryan quipped.The Bucs, losing their first three games for the third time in six years, couldn’t do anything right. Josh McCown was 5 of 12 for 58 yards and his fourth interception of the season was returned 23 yards for a touchdown by backup safety Kemal Ishmael.Somewhat mercifully, McCown left the game with a thumb injury after appearing to bang his right hand off an Atlanta player’s helmet on his final throw of the night. Mike Glennon went the rest of the way at quarterback.“I thought I had my football team ready to play,” said first-year Bucs coach Lovie Smith. “Obviously, we weren’t ready to play.”The Falcons finished with a 488-217 edge in total yards. The Bucs had five turnovers and 110 yards in penalties on what will surely go down as one of the worst embarrassments for a franchise that knows a thing or two about losing, dropping its first 26 games after entering the NFL in 1976.If not for Danny Lansanah’s 27-yard interception return for a touchdown, Tampa Bay would’ve eclipsed its biggest loss ever, a 48-3 blowout by the San Francisco 49ers in 2011.(PAUL NEWBERRY, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Port Rowan girl reels in TV show

PORT ROWAN A 12-year-old Port Rowan girl will be the star of a new TV show about fishing.Averie Rose Bonin of Port Rowan announced that she will have a show on Bell Fibe TV showcasing her love for fishing.Averie, who just finished Grade 7, went fishing for the first time when she was only seven days old. Fishing is in her blood, with fishers on both sides of her family.“My family lives here in Port Rowan, right on the water,” said Averie.She has a YouTube channel where she makes videos about fishing that are directed towards other children her age, hoping they will start fishing, too.Averie was inspired to create her YouTube channel, which currently has 684 subscribers, when she found out that none of her friends knew about the Bassmaster Classic, a fishing tournament.“I thought all of my friends would know about it because I live in a fishing town,” said Averie. “No one knew what it was, and it was one of the best experiences of my life because I love fishing and I’m very competitive. I thought if I could get more kids into fishing then they would know about it.”She successfully pitched her idea for the show to Bell.“They called us and asked us to go in for a meeting,” said Averie’s dad, Ryan. “She had school, so I went. They loved it, they watched a bunch of Averie’s videos and thought she was awesome.”“We’re focusing on tournament-style fishing,” said Averie, who will be going out with Canadian pros.Averie has a series on her channel titled “Tips for Fishing with Kids,” which she uses to speak to parents or mentors that want to get children interested in fishing. Her goal is to inspire the next generation of fishers.“One thing that a lot of people don’t realize is that she’s getting up at 3:30 in the morning, she’s doing seminars and getting home after midnight,” said Averie’s father.“I’m most proud of her for putting in the work and effort that she’s putting into this.”The show’s first episode will air during the winter.“I’m just excited to go out fishing with the anglers because they’re very experienced and I will learn a whole bunch of new things,” said Averie. “And, of course, to get more kids into fishing.”astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Football Ohio State under scholarship limit with Darius Slade transfer Dylan Thompson

Ohio State football redshirt junior defensive end Darius Slade has transferred from the program, and defensive tackle Dylan Thompson is no longer on scholarship, coach Urban Meyer announced Monday.Rated as high as the No. 30 strong-side defensive end by 247Sports as a senior in high school, Slade missed all of the 2016 season after suffering a lower leg injury in camp last fall. Thompson, a four-star high school prospect, has battled injuries during his college career. He redshirted the 2014 season after a knee injury in fall camp, and had a quiet 2015 campaign due to his rehabilitation.“He’s not on scholarship right now,” Meyer said. “He was ineligible last year so he’s to be determined.”Ohio State is now under the NCAA’s 85-scholarship limit for the 2017 season. read more

Global fake tech support scammers taken down by regulators

first_imgAlong with regulators from several other nations, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has shut down an international criminal ring accused of scamming tens of thousands of consumers with fake tech support services. In all, 14 companies and 17 individuals have been targeted for prosecution, but those numbers could climb.The scam was devious in its simplicity. Scammers would cold call consumers pretending to be with well-known technology companies like Microsoft and Google. The unwitting recipient of the call would be told that their computer was known to be infected with a virus. In order to fix this problem, the supposed tech support rep coerced users into handing over remote access to their system. You can probably see where this is going.Instead of “fixing” anything, the scammer would lock the system down and blame the virus. In order to regain access, the owner was asked to pay between $49 and $450 to “remove the virus.” Many of these operations were based overseas, but used US-based phone numbers to appear more legitimate. To avoid detection, they would often have 80 or more domain names and 130 phone numbers per company.With the help of international regulators, the FTC has managed to freeze over $188,000, but more accounts are expected to be added. When the investigation is completed, these funds could be seized and used to reimburse the victims, but it’s unlikely there will be enough to go around. As early as 2009, there were 10,000 complaints to regulators about this scam in Australia. Tens of thousands more complaints were made as it moved overseas to the US, Canada, and the UK.It’s easy for those of us that live with technology on the brain to say these folks should have known better. Though, for many people technology is a confusing concept fraught with unknowable risks. For these people, a friendly human voice on the other end of the phone can be infinitely more trustworthy than the cold, unfeeling glow of a computer monitor.via ZDNetlast_img read more

US diplomats push for GreekBulgarian gas pipeline

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram IGB was planned to ensure an alternative supply to Russian natural gas for Bulgaria through a linkup with the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) that will carry Azeri gas, with the prospect of additional interconnecting pipelines up to Romania and Hungary, and possibly all the way north to the Baltic countries.Washington has sent its special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs, Amos Hochstein, to Athens, who will meet with Greek Energy Minister Panos Skourletis on Wednesday morning. After that there will be a three-way meeting with the participation of Bulgarian Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova.Hochstein’s visit is deemed preparatory ahead of a formal visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to Athens in November.The IGB pipeline is high on the US energy diplomacy agenda due to the potential independence it offers to Southeastern European countries from Russian firm Gazprom’s gas. Through its connection with TAP, IGB will link the Greek town of Komotini with Bulgarian city Stara Zagora. First Bulgaria, then Romania and Hungary, and later on the Baltic states will be able to receive gas from Azerbaijan and from other sources in the Caspian Sea, not only from the gas coming via TAP through Greece, but also from the Greek network that could supply those countries with the liquefied natural gas (LNG) stored at Revythousa. This is why the IGB project has been included among the European Union priorities and resources of 45 million euros have been set aside for its funding.The start of the project’s construction depends on the decision that managing company ICGB will make, though this was postponed in May without a new date being set. The Greek side cited technical details for the postponement, but this coincided with the visit of Skourletis’s predecessor, Panayiotis Lafazanis, to Moscow.The US was not happy with the delay, but Hochstein has not rushed to Athens due to another development: ICGB has decided to extend the market test process that started in May 2013, citing uncertainties, with its end remaining open as it requires an agreement by the Greek and Bulgarian regulators.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Every year there are not only Greeks, but also other denominations that come and take photos with me.” The priest from the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Panagia Kamariani in Red Hill went on to emphasise that regardless of what one is wearing, it is not his role to discriminate. “No matter what they’re wearing, I’d still take the photo. There’s nothing wrong with it. We should be equal, the boys and the girls,” he explained. Father Lefteris made a point of highlighting the fact that the young men taking part in the Epiphany Day tradition and diving for the cross were unclad from the waist up. He says it would be wrong to judge him for taking a photo with the young women wearing beach attire on a warm summer’s day, but not for taking one with the young men with their shirts off. Taking the subject of equality one step further, Father Lefteris took the opportunity to raise the matter of why women do not take part in the Epiphany Day traditions. “A lot of young girls ask me, ‘why can’t we dive for the cross as well?’ And I say ‘it’s not wrong; you can dive to take the cross – I permit it’,” he said, adding that on his island of Chios both genders take part. In his eyes, both males and females “have the same soul, the same heart” and so should all be welcomed and included in matters of the church. It would be fair to say Father Lefteris’ popularity amongst the youth is in large part attributed to his openness and progressive thinking. Ordained at the age of 22, now 73, Father Lefteris has been a priest for more than 50 years and says he has never followed the tradition of extending his hand to be kissed by parishioners, preferring to interact with them as equals. “I’ve been the same all my life; I respect everyone and I love the people. Church is people, not me. If you come up here (to Red Hill) now on the holidays you’ll see so many people attending the church, it’s always open,” he said. Since the photo was published, Father Lefteris says he has been approached by the girls apologising for any negative attention garnered by the image. But he has made it clear there is no issue. “The girls have said ‘sorry Father, we didn’t mean to cause you trouble with the photo’, and I said ‘no, there’s no trouble’. These people that talk negatively are hypocrites. “If you see this photo, it’s beautiful. There’s the cross on one side of the girls and in the other hand I’m holding vasilikos (basil). So what’s wrong?”Related story: Priest photo stirs debatelast_img read more
