What to look out for on IAAF World Championships Day 4 – Monday

first_imgAries Merritt could provide the fairytale that the championships need after Justin Gatlin denied Usain Bolt his golden farewell in the 100m.London, United Kingdom | AFP | Day four highlights for the IAAF World Championships on Monday:Men’s 110m hurdles finalAries Merritt could provide the fairytale that the championships need after Justin Gatlin denied Usain Bolt his golden farewell in the 100m. The 31-year-old American safely negotiated the two rounds on Sunday and is one outstanding performance away from repeating his Olympic winning feat on the same track in 2012 and just two years after a kidney transplant. Slightly alarming for him was he felt his hamstring prior to the semi-final. His biggest threat will be Jamaica’s Olympic champion Omar McLeod who looked to be in ominously good shape and is determined to break Merritt’s world record in the final.Women’s triple jump finalThis should be an engrossing duel between the undisputed queen for the past few years, Colombia’s 33-year-old Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen and the pretender to her throne Yulimar Rojas, who could bring some much-needed cheer to Venezuela. However, if Rojas the Olympic silver medallist thinks she can seize the world crown from the Colombian then she has another thing coming for Ibarguen is keen to win her third successive world title. “There are no doubts,” said Ibarguen. “I am aiming for a third world championships victory in London. Winning in Rio was great but I am still hungry for more.”Women’s 1500m final The moment of truth for Caster Semenya, South Africa’s defending double Olympic 800m champion and two-time world gold medallist aiming for an audacious middle-distance double. Although her career has been mired by arguments over her elevated levels of naturally occurring testerone, Semenya is happy to focus on her performances on the track.Men’s 200m heatsUsain Bolt will not defend his 200m crown, one he has held since setting a world record 19.19 seconds in Berlin in 2009. That has left the field open for a new gold medallist after Bolt’s run of four. It could well come down to a battle between South Africa’s world and Olympic 400m champion Wayde van Niekerk and Botswanan rival Isaac Makwala, both seeking a first 200/400m world double since Michael Johnson in Gothenburg in 1995.Women’s 400m semi-finalsAmerican athletics great Allyson Felix will bid to take another step towards a 10th world gold when she bids to safely negotiate her way into the 400m final. The 31-year-old said: “I feel good, peaking at the right time.” But standing in her way will be Shaunae Miller-Uibo, the Bahamian who denied her Olympic gold last year and looked in sublime form as she posted a faster time in her heat of 50.97sec.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

‘This is the dream’ – Adventurer chooses Malin rest stop after 2,800km trek

first_imgIt’s destination Donegal for Derek Cullen after completing an amazing 2,800km walk around Ireland.The Dublin native, who turned his life around in a battle with loss, alcohol and depression, has decided to take a well-earned rest in a cottage on Malin Head for the next two months.The 37-year-old had been on the move for 78 days of hiking and camping around Ireland. His journey became an online sensation, with thousands taking motivation from his daily updates and inspirational messages from the wildest parts of the county. Derek Cullen. Photos by Brian Reilly Troy @brt.photoAfter completing the walk on October 31st, Derek set his sights on Donegal again to enjoy the remote landscape of Malin.How he found a place to stay was almost fate.Derek tells Donegal Daily: “Malin Head is one of my favourite places in Ireland. On the way around Ireland, I think people could see Donegal was my favourite. Malin really stood out, I think it’s because it feels like the edge of the world.”“I had my eye on this cottage years ago. It’s in one of the most remote places. I even contacted the lady who owned it and asked how much the house cost. But then a couple of months ago I was chancing my arm again and told the lady what I was doing and she rented it to me. I couldn’t believe my luck.” Derek Cullen at his home-from-home in Malin HeadDerek is planning to enjoy the solitude, the turf fires, and exploring the wild and rugged landscape of Malin until Christmas, when he’ll head home to see family. He’ll be sharing his usual open and insightful videos with followers during the stay and plans to launch his own outdoor clothing brand – Out Dare.Derek also plans to use the time-out to put pen to paper.“I haven’t started but I plan to write a book about my journey, from my low point when this started five years ago and how the outdoors changed things,” he said.In 2014, Derek was living a self-destructive life of drinking following the death of his parents. The turning point came when he decided to live for his parents instead of trying to live without them.Derek followed his passion for the outdoors and it took on incredible cycles and hikes around the Africa, Newfoundland and from Mexico to Canada. Being outdoors eased his anxiety, but he eventually had to return to Ireland to face his demons. The all-Ireland trek brought Derek on a journey of discovery – visiting amazing regions and finding himself again.“My trip around Ireland turned out to be the most exciting trip I had ever taken,” he said.“The biggest thing I learned was really simple – to appreciate where I come from and what we have on our doorstep.“I had never really gotten out there in Ireland and this opened up a whole new world to me.” Derek Cullen. Photos by Brian Reilly Troy @brt.photoDerek also traced his roots to Donegal and took the opportunity to meet with relatives this year. His grandmother Sarah Gallagher is from Creeslough and she was the sister of the famous singer, Bridie Gallagher.Derek was amazed by the welcome he received: “I went to Creeslough and the Gallagher clan were all there at their house. I got to meet my mother’s cousin and they brought me to where my grandmother was born. She worked in Ards Friary too.“I felt very connected up there. The welcome was incredible, even to this day they are still contacting me.”Those close ties to the county are just one reason why Derek is so excited to make the move to Malin on Friday.“Everyone in Donegal has made me feel at home,” he said.You can follow Derek’s experiences in Malin and beyond here on Facebook.com/derekcullenoutdoors/‘This is the dream’ – Adventurer chooses Malin rest stop after 2,800km trek was last modified: November 6th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:derek cullenMalin HeadOutdoorslast_img read more

a month agoLiverpool boss Klopp tells Blades: We deserved this win

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp tells Blades: We deserved this winby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with their win at Sheffield United.The Reds battled to a 1-0 triumph thanks to Gini Wijnaldum’s winner.Klopp said afterwards: “For us it was important to win. We had unbelievably big chances In the first half we had two big chances and in the second one which we scored from. These games, they are not all beauties and you have to work hard for the results.”You have to respect the opponent, we had good moments and it was one of these games you have to win but not think too much about it. One team deserved to win, which was us, but all respect to Sheffield United, they were tough.”I was frustrated, and at half time we spoke about it. We started well, but you have to do the same things again and again. It’s about body language, it starts with the centre halves, it’s the little things. They threw everything at us, they worked incredibly hard, they were a real threat. I am fine with the game, not overly happy but it happens. We were concentrated at set pieces for 95 minutes the boys were spot on. We didn’t play our best football but there we are.” last_img read more

Budget office cuts cost estimate of childrens insurance

first_imgWASHINGTON – Congress’ official budget analysts have eased one stumbling block to lawmakers’ fight over renewing a program that provides health insurance for nearly 9 million low-income children.The Congressional Budget Office says a Senate bill adding five years of financing to the program would cost $800 million. Previously, the analysts estimated it would cost $8.2 billion.That means lawmakers should find it much easier to agree to a way to pay for extending the program.The lower cost projection doesn’t resolve the main barrier the bill faces. Extending the children’s health program has become enmeshed in a battle among President Donald Trump and lawmakers over how to protect hundreds of thousands of younger immigrants from deportation, and how much added money should be spent on defence and domestic programs.Once those more heated disputes are resolved, the conflict over children’s health should end quickly.Financing for the program expired last fall. Congress has temporarily extended its funding, but growing numbers of states have moved closer to exhausting their money. Members of both parties are eager to extend the health insurance program and avoid being blamed for causing millions of children to be uninsured.Counterintuitively, the bill’s budget impact has shrunk because the Republican tax bill enacted last month eliminated the penalty President Barack Obama’s health care law imposes on people who don’t buy insurance. That move is expected to drive up the government’s costs of subsidizing people buying policies on insurance marketplaces.That’s because ending those penalties is projected to result in fewer healthy people buying coverage on marketplaces, driving premiums higher for remaining consumers. Since government subsidies for people buying policies are linked to premiums, higher premiums mean higher federal costs.The budget analysts say extending the children’s insurance program will encourage some parents to use that program and not the marketplaces. That would save the government money.The new estimate was included in a letter the budget office sent Friday to Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.last_img read more

Bell asking customers for permission to collect more personal information

first_imgTORONTO — Canada’s largest telecommunications group is getting mixed reviews for its plan to follow the lead of companies like Google and Facebook in collecting massive amounts of information about the activities and preferences of its customers.Bell Canada began asking its customers in December for permission to track everything they do with their home and mobile phones, internet, television, apps or any other services they get through Bell or its affiliates.In return, Bell says it will provide advertising and promotions that are more “tailored” to their needs and preferences.“Tailored marketing means Bell will be able to customize advertising based on participant account information and service usage patterns, similar to the ways that companies like Google and others have been doing for some time,” the company says in recent notices to customers.If given permission, Bell will collect information about its customers’ age, gender, billing addresses, and the specific tablet, television or other devices used to access Bell services.It will also collect the “number of messages sent and received, voice minutes, user data consumption and type of connectivity when downloading or streaming.”“Bell’s marketing partners will not receive the personal information of program participants; we just deliver the offers relevant to the program participants on their behalf,” the company assures customers.Teresa Scassa, who teaches law at the University of Ottawa and holds the Canada Research Chair in Information Law and Policy, says Bell has done a good job of explaining what it wants to do.But Scassa says Bell customers who opt into Bell’s new program could be giving away commercially valuable personal information with little to no compensation for increased risks to their privacy and security.“Here’s a company that’s taking every shred of personal information about me, from all kinds of activities that I engage in, and they’re monetizing it. What do I get in return? Better ads? Really? That’s it? What about better prices?”Toronto-based consultant Charlie Wilton, whose firm has advised Bell and Rogers in the past, says there’s “tonnes” of evidence that consumers are increasingly aware of how valuable their personal information can be.“I mean, in a perfect world, they would give you discounts or they would give you points or things that consumers would more tangibly want, rather than just the elimination of a pain point — which is what they’re offering right now,” Wilton says.Scassa says there are also privacy and security concerns to consider.At the macro level, Bell’s data security could be breached by hackers. At the micro level, she adds, there’s the potential for family friction if everybody starts getting ads based on one person’s activities.Ads for pornography, birth control or services for victims of abuse could trigger confrontations, for instance.“Some families are open and sharing. Others are fraught with tension and violence,” Scassa says.Wilton says a company in Bell’s position also runs the risk that customers will feel betrayed if their information is leaked or the advertising they receive is inappropriate.In the age of social media, he says, “one leak or one transgression gets amplified a million times.”For its part, Bell spokesman Nathan Gibson notes in an email that its customers aren’t required to opt into its new marketing program and they can opt out later by adjusting their instructions to the company.“Bell is responsible for delivering the advertising we believe would be most relevant to customers who opt in to the program, rather than the random online ads they would receive otherwise,” Gibson says.“Customer information is always protected, enforced by our strict privacy policy and in accordance with all Canadian privacy regulations.”A spokeswoman for the federal privacy commissioner says that it hasn’t received any complaints about Bell’s new program.However, Tobi Cohen noted that Bell withdrew and replaced its earlier Relevant Ads Program for its mobile service after the commission concluded in 2015 that dissatisfied consumers shouldn’t be required to take the initiative to opt out.“Following further consultations and discussions with our office, Bell did make improvements and relaunched the program with opt-in consent in 2016,” Cohen says.She added that the privacy commission hasn’t scrutinized the new “tailored” marketing program but added that the federal privacy law governing private-sector organizations has numerous requirements.Among other things, organizations “need to explain what risks of harm may come to the individual from the collection, use or disclosure of the various information.” Companies in this story: (TSX:BCE)David Paddon, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
