The International Bromont ended this Sunday July 28th with Irishman Andrew Bourns’ stunning victory in the Quebec Original World Cup qualifying event, at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park.The course, designed by world renowned Leopoldo Palacios (VEN), comprised thirteen obstacles for sixteen efforts, with a time allowed of 85 seconds. Only three of the twenty-eight participating pairs made it to the jump-off, as there were many technical difficulties.A first play-off roundThe spa (a large obstacle) just before the triple combination proved to be almost insurmountable, forcing riders to play on the scope of the strides. Many had to forget about making it to the jump-off on that fence. The last double combination, with only one stride between both fences, did not leave many survivors. Derek Braun (USA) / Lacarolus, Liubov Kochetova (RUS) / Aslan and Andrew Bourns (IRL) / Gatsby were the only ones to qualify for the jump-off.A battle of threeAmerican Derek Braun is the first in the ring for the second round, where, with Lacarolus, he executes a clear round in 42.77 seconds. Liubov Kochetova (RUS) on Aslan gets a better time than the first pair, but a fallen bar takes away their chance at first place. Andrew Bourns (IRL), last competitor in the ring, goes for broke on his mount Gatsby, a calculated risk since his quick and precise turns allow him to best Braun’s time by over two seconds, giving him first place.A sixth place for Angela CovertQuebec’s Angela Covert Lawrence, who finished in second place in last Sunday’s Grand Prix, climbed to a 6th place ahead of Andrew Bourns and his second horse, New Boy de Logerie.Montrealer David Arcand, took 9th place with Vledder, just behind Mac Cone and Armor van de Rostal.Quebec Orignial World Cup1.

Cuomo: Extend commercial eviction ban through the spring

first_imgCuomo’s last executive order on commercial evictions came in mid-December, when he extended the moratorium through Jan. 31. The governor has extended the ban on commercial evictions multiple times since his initial executive order went into effect last March, but can only do so for a month at a time.Now, Cuomo wants lawmakers to advance legislation that would put the ban into place until the beginning of May. While details on the legislation were not immediately available, a release from the governor’s office notes that it would apply to tenants who are experiencing hardship because of Covid-19, and not those who are “creating health and safety hazards.”In light of the moratorium, some commercial landlords have agreed to payment plans or lease payments based on a percentage of tenants’ income. Others have found ways to circumvent the ban, through a maneuver called self-help evictions.As part of his planned legislation, the governor also plans to extend the ban on fees for late residential rent payments, and allow tenants to use their security deposit toward rental payments.The state legislature already codified a ban on residential evictions at the end of December with the passage of the Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020, which limited evictions and foreclosures on some properties until May 1. The bill allows tenants and landlords the request protection from eviction or foreclosure by filling out a hardship declaration form.But some have criticized the bill for not providing financial aid to renters or landlords, and its absence of means-testing.Contact [email protected] Full Name* Email Address* Gov. Cuomo wants to extend the commercial eviction ban through the spring. (Getty) The ban on commercial evictions may continue through the spring, if Gov. Andrew Cuomo has his way.The governor announced today that as part of his 2021 State of the State address, he’ll propose legislation extending the moratorium through May 1, along with new protections for renters who are facing financial hardship because of the pandemic.“The pandemic shouldn’t get in the way of our ability to provide space for our businesses and roofs over our heads,” Cuomo said in a statement.Read moreHow landlords get around the commercial eviction moratoriumCRE lawyers: You’re stuck with that leaseLawmakers mull action on evictions as rent relief expansion stallsLandlords jarred by sudden drop in rent collectioncenter_img Message* This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more


A lot of bottle needed: 3T sponsors the Jeroboam Challenge gravel…

first_img Related 3T has finalized the routes for Italy’s first all-comers gravel event – the Jeroboam Challenge, which takes place in Franciacorta, in the foothills of the Alps in the Lombardy region, on 20-21 May. The event is presented by 3T with Giangi’s Bike Snc and the Patrocinio del comune di Erbusco. It is open to all comers for an entry fee of €45.There are three distances on offer, all starting from the town square in Erbusco. The Jeroboam 300 is an epic 300km and nearly 5000m elevation gain. To begin with, the route traverses the Franciacorta vineyards, over undulating hills on gravel roads. As it heads north, it moves into the rougher and tougher mountains. The gravel and dirt tracks get narrower and rockier – ‘some stretches may be barely rideable’.The Magnum 150 covers much of the same terrain but omits some of the high mountains to the north-west. This is obviously not as demanding as the Jereboam 300 but at 150km still a tough endurance test even for hard riders. The organising team notes that there is nothing standard about the Standard 75. Here, riders start on the same roads as the longer distance events, winding through the Franciacorta vineyards and the beautiful landscapes of the Northern Italian Lake district.As wine buffs will know, the event names give a nod to the several sizes of wine bottle. The Jeroboam is the largest, containing 300cl (Magnum 150cl, Standard 75cl). Franciacorta’s popular sparkling wines are available in the Jeroboam size. There is the prospect of a glass or two at the after-party in Erbusco, whichever distance riders may choose.www.jeroboam.bikewww.3tcycling.comlast_img read more


High Court to rule on access to full adoption file

first_imgThe High Court has been asked to make an unprecedented order to allow a journalist to see all court papers in a flawed adoption case. The application comes as the family justice system faces heightened pressure to be more transparent.Melanie Newman, a freelance journalist, asked the court to make an order allowing her to see the full court file relating to an adoption order regarding a four-year-old girl, known as R. Judges said the order had been made on the ‘slimmest of evidence’. Even if successful, Newman will not be able to publish any of the information in the documents without a further court order.Anya Proops QC, acting pro bono for Newman, told the court that the girl’s mother, as well as R, now aged seven, supported the application. She read an email from the mother that said: ‘My hope now is that lessons can be learned from the systematic failures of this case and spare others from the unimaginable trauma that [R] and her family has endured.’Proops said the application was being made to reveal the ‘full picture of the evolution and origin’ of the local authority’s decision-making process and allow the media to perform its crucial ‘social watchdog function’.Media scrutiny was ‘fundamental to maintain the integrity of the care system’, Proops said. Lawyers for the local authority and the child’s guardian stressed that they recognised the benefit and necessity of transparency in the family justice system and the role played by journalists, but opposed the application, although they agreed to disclosure of some of the papers.For the local authority, Heather Rogers QC said the ‘unprecedented’ application went beyond anything ordered in other courts. To give a third party the right to see the requested documents, which include medical records, was an intrusion into privacy rights that required ‘proper justification’.She told the court that the journalist’s right to freedom of expression was not more important than the privacy rights of others.For the child’s guardian, Deirdre Fottrell QC said the child’s best interest should be considered before balancing the rights of the press to scrutinise the care process. She urged the court to protect R’s privacy.Judgment was reserved.last_img read more


Opinion: Reasons to Dismiss Hue Jackson as Browns Coach Were as Many as His List of Excuses

first_imgBy Mike Holzheimer“How do I fire thee, let me count the ways.”Apologies to poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning for the mild satirical reference pertaining to the opening line of her famed Sonnet 43, but that’s what came to mind when the news first broke that the Cleveland Browns had fired its head coach Hue Jackson.And while the “discord” of dust has settled a bit within the walls of the team’s headquarters in Berea, the burning question is still being asked by media members and fans-what took you so long?Indeed. There was no validation to be found anywhere that would suggest Jackson should remain in charge on the sidelines because eventually, he will right this sinking ship. But after a 3-36-1 combined record as head coach, Jackson’s ship had about as much of a chance to remain afloat as the Titanic.Losing all those games, contests he was in charge of, was simply unacceptable. It was also an anchor far too heavy around the necks of General Manager John Dorsey and Jimmy Haslam, the Browns owner, who gave Jackson one of the biggest breaks ever afforded a head coach in the history of professional sports. One would be hard-pressed to find a NFL head coach who was given the kind of “pardon” Jackson got with such a horrific won-loss record.Haslam’s assurance that the media, league and fans would “see the real Hue Jackson” this year, had as much accuracy as a Shane Gonzalez extra point or field goal attempt. In fact, Haslam’s overall accuracy in terms of “getting it right” when it comes to hiring the right head coach ranks right up there with the many misses by placekickers in the league this season.In terms of really missing the mark, though, Jackson stands alone, and despite what Haslam told the media during the press conference announcing the firing, this WAS NOT a very tough decision. Whether or not to fire Jackson was about as difficult a decision as asking a young boy to decide between the latest video game and a pair of corduroy pants for one of his Christmas presents.

SearchMonkey Keeps Getting Smarter: Now Embeds Videos, Games, and Documents

first_imgTags:#news#search#web#Yahoo Yahoo today announced a new feature for SearchMonkey that makes it very easy for site owners to embed flash videos, games, and documents directly on the Yahoo Search results page. The first sites to make use of this new feature are Hulu, Metacafe, and YouTube. Whenever a video from these sites appears in your search results, you can now watch it immediately in an embedded player right on the search results page.SearchMonkey supports a number of popular video players, including Hulu, YouTube, and MetaCafe, as well as documents from Scribd and Slideshare, and Playcrafter games. Embedding these documents in the search results is relatively easy, and Yahoo provides content owners with an extensive set of helpful documents to get them started. To embed a video, for example, a developer only needs to add two lines of code. Videos are already appearing in Yahoo’s search results now, and documents and games will become available in the next month or so. Google, of course, also shows thumbnails for YouTube clips in its search results, but clicking on these will take you to YouTube and won’t open the video player right on the page. Yahoo says that it wants to make it easier for developers to make use of SearchMonkey. SearchMonkey is an extremely powerful tool, but it can also be very hard to use for somebody who doesn’t have the technical knowledge required to create a SearchMonkey app. Thanks to this new feature, even novice webmasters will now be able to embed some of the most popular forms of content on Yahoo’s search results page. As we have said before, Yahoo continues to develop new and innovative ways to enhance its search, but so far, this hasn’t made too much of a dent in Google’s market share. Breaking Google’s momentum will be very hard for any player in the search engine market, but if anything, Yahoo is clearly showing that it is not willing to throw in the towel just yet. frederic lardinois Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
