Kyler Murray fires a missile to Christian Kirk for a 56-yard touchdown for the Cardinals. Murray responded in the best way possible, throwing touchdown passes on Arizona’s next two possessions – including a 56-yarder to Christian Kirk – but the Dolphins answered each of those with scores of their own, including a nine-yard strike from Tua to Preston Williams, who injured his foot on the play when diving for the goal line.The Dolphins led 24-17 at half-time, but the Cardinals turned that into a seven-point lead by the end of the third quarter as Murray found the endzone on a 12-yard run following off the back of a 21-yard scoring strike to Darrell Daniels, who outwrestled Miami cornerback Byron Jones for his first career TD. Preston Williams dives over the line for a Miami touchdown but injures himself on the play. Miami Dolphins’ rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got the better of Arizona Cardinals’ own, exciting young QB talent Kyler Murray as he led his team to a thrilling 34-31 win in his second NFL start.Tua completed 20 of 28 passes for 248 yards, with two touchdowns and no turnovers. He also ran seven times for 35 yards as Miami (5-3) won their fourth-straight game – the team’s longest winning streak in four years. – Advertisement – Dolphins 7-0 CardinalsShaq Lawson 36-yard fumble return for a TD (extra point) Cardinals stats: Kyler Murray, 21/26, 283 yards, 3 TDsRushing leader: Kyler Murray, 11 carries, 106 yards, 1 TDReceiving leader: Christian Kirk, five catches, 123 yards, 1 TDAlthough the QB clash was the big draw, Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders also had a crucial role in the victory as he made two field goals, including a career-best 56-yarder.

Their involvement has outraged the Indonesian Teachers Association (PGRI) and the two-largest Muslim organizations in the country, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) and Muhammadiyah.They expressed their objections and withdrew from the program, saying that organizations with corporate backing should not be allowed to participate and get support from the state budget.The three organizations were selected to participate in the “Elephant” category of the program, making them eligible for the largest grant of Rp 20 billion (US$1.3 million) to train teachers at 100 schools. Tanoto and Putera Sampoerna are also in the “Elephant” category.In addition to emphasizing the latter two’s participation in the self-financing scheme, Nadiem also apologized to the three organizations and promised to evaluate the POP.However, they have yet to decide whether they would reenter.Syaiful Huda, chairman of the House of Representatives Commission X overseeing education, said Nadiem had not informed lawmakers about financing schemes other than a fully funded scheme sourced from the state budget.”If there had been no public criticism, maybe the program would still have only one scheme. But I think adding the two new schemes is a good idea,” Syaiful said on Thursday.Tanoto and Putera Sampoerna, he said, should be the supporting organizations taking part in the program using their own money.”I think this is the best policy and it’s acceptable,” the National Awakening Party (PKB) politician said.However, he added that the House would still summon Nadiem to provide an explanation as to why the House had never been told about the other two financing schemes for the program.“There was only a single scheme, the fully funded one worth Rp 595 billion.” The Tanoto Foundation and the Putera Sampoerna Foundation will not be eligible for a grant from a government teacher training program, Education and Culture Minister Nadiem Makarim has said.They will instead use a self-financing scheme to participate in the Mobilization Organization Program (POP), which is part of the ministry’s Freedom to Learn initiative aimed at improving the quality of Indonesia’s teachers by involving communities and organizations. “The ministry has made an agreement with the Tanoto Foundation and the Putera Sampoerna Foundation that they will participate in the program without using any funds from the state budget. They will fund their own efforts,” Nadiem said in a written statement on Tuesday.

TPR said the data it released yesterday provided context to the expectations it set as part of its annual funding statement (AFS), and Warwick-Thompson confirmed the regulator’s intent.“Having made our expectations so clear in this year’s AFS, if we see a situation where we believe a scheme is not being treated fairly, we are likely to intervene,” he said. “For example, if a company is paying out more in dividends than in deficit reduction contributions, we will expect to see a short recovery plan. And we will expect that recovery plan to be underpinned by an appropriate investment strategy.”The analysis released yesterday related to DB schemes carrying out valuations between 22 September 2016 and 21 September 2017.TPR said the vast majority of schemes remained affordable, but many should do more to tackle increased benefits.For 37% of schemes TPR considered the employer covenant adequate to support the scheme, but said the current contribution and/or risk strategies posed unnecessary longer-term risks.These could be mitigated by an increased pace of funding, in some cases combined with a reduction in the level of risk, it added.Darren Redmayne, chief executive of Lincoln Pensions, said it was concerning, but not surprising, that TPR viewed nearly four in 10 schemes as taking unnecessary longer-term risks.“To date the industry has focused too much on current scheme deficits and not enough on the risks being run, which can result in further deficits emerging,” he said.Redmayne added that TPR had fired “a warning salvo” regarding the balance between dividends and deficit contributions.“We expect some corporate dividend decisions will come back to bite their directors and shareholders in the coming years,” he said. UK FTSE 350 companies significantly increased dividend payments over the previous six years, but failed to match these with deficit reduction payments to defined benefit (DB) pension schemes, according to the regulator.The Pensions Regulator (TPR) said that the ratio of deficit repair contributions to dividends declined from around 10% to 7% between 2011 and 2016.This was mainly due to a significant increase in dividends over the period, without a similar increase in contributions, it added.Andrew Warwick-Thompson, outgoing TPR executive director for regulatory policy, said the development was disappointing. “We are not against companies paying out dividends but employers must strike the right balance between the interests of the scheme and of its shareholders,” he said.TPR last month published its annual report on DB scheme funding, calling on dividend-paying companies to ensure a balance between cash paid to shareholders and contributions to pension schemes.read more
NewsRegional Bahamas to improve access to drinking water by: – November 23, 2011 Sharing is caring! 7 Views no discussions Share Share Image via: topnews.inWASHINGTON, USA — The Bahamas will overhaul major parts of the water infrastructure in New Providence with the help of an $81 million loan approved by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).The five-year program is expected to cut in half the amount of water lost through leakages in New Providence, conserving precious drinking water and improving financial sustainability for local water suppliers.A total of 6,000 leaks will be repaired and 9,000 new water connections will be activated by project completion. Moreover, water pressure and continuity are expected to rise significantly, leading to better service for 38,000 households that already connected to the water network.“The Bahamas has by far the lowest ratio of fresh water to population in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Evan Cayetano, project team leader at the IDB. “The amount of available fresh water per capita is less than 0.1 percent of the regional average, which highlights the need for action in this sector.”The operation will establish a new independent environmental regulator to protect the country’s scarce fresh water resources, as well as a new economic regulator. It also aims to strengthen management of the Water and Sewerage Corporation, the country’s main provider of water services, implementing a monitoring system to facilitate operation and maintenance.The program will also target potential health hazards by rehabilitating broken sewerage infrastructure and coming up with a master plan to address wastewater collection and treatment in New Providence.Caribbean News Now Share Tweetread more

Valencia: Bengaluru FC began their pre-season tour in Spain with a 1-2 loss to Atlético Saguntino in their first friendly game at the Masia La Grava facility in Alboraya here.In a fiercely contested encounter on Friday, it was Saguntino who took an early lead through striker David Fas who capitalised on goalkeeper Soram Poirei’s error and slotted home in the seventh minute.While Bengaluru created chances through new signing Xisco Hernandez, they lacked the killer finish in the final third going into the break with a one-goal deficit.Bengaluru returned with a renewed vigour in the second half and dominated proceedings in the opening quarter.Back-to-back saves from Poirei gave Bengaluru confidence who pushed up and got the equaliser. Playmaker Dimas Delgado, who played his first game after being taken off for an injury in the Indian Super League (ISL) final in March, was on target, finishing off Udanta Singh’s pass to make it 1-1 in the 53rd minute.The visitors continued to create a few chances, most notably through Xisco who continued to impress on his debut.However, it was Saguntino who managed to break down the Bengaluru defence and score the winner in the 84th minute when a cross from the left was nodded home.Bengaluru coach Carles Cuadrat said he was pleased with the performance ahead of the tougher tests they will face the coming 10 days.“We’ve been working hard all these days and these games are an opportunity for us to try on the pitch what we have been training for. It’s important to give an opportunity to all the players,” he said.“We have a mix in the team where a few players have got a lot of game time while there are those who haven’t competed professionally.“I was happy with the performance in the game against Saguntino because for large periods, we played the football we have been training for, and we gave a good account of ourselves against a tough opponent.”Apart from Xisco, Poirei and Rino Anto started their first games in their second spell as well. Meanwhile, Chencho Gyeltshen, Altamash Sayed, Asheer Akhtar, Bidyananda Singh and Aditya Patra came on in the second half along with Gursimrat Singh Gill.Bengaluru next face UAE Pro League side Shabab Al Ahli Dubai FC on August 6.

Palantir, the data analytics software company co-founded by Peter Thiel, one of President Donald Trump’s former top allies in Silicon Valley, just wrapped up its best two days since going public in September, even as Trump’s prospects for a second term dimmed.Shares of Palantir surged 17% on Friday following an 11% jump a day earlier. The stock closed the week at $13.83, up 38% from its debut price.Thiel, the company’s chairman, saw the value of his stake, owned through various entities, jump by over $700 million over the last two days of trading. In Trump’s 2016 campaign, Thiel was a major supporter and adviser, but the venture capitalist did not back the president’s reelection effort. As of Friday, Trump trailed Democrat Joe Biden, who was just 17 electoral votes short of the 270 needed to win and was making significant progress in key states. – Advertisement – Because of Thiel’s ties to Trump and Palantir’s large government contracts, some investors may have viewed the the company as better off under Trump than a Democratic administration. However, Mark Cash, an equity analyst at Morningstar, said investors are getting more comfortable with the company’s story and aren’t worried about any disruption based on a change in the White House.Cash didn’t have a good explanation for the stock’s dramatic move up, but said that he’s optimistic about the company’s upcoming third-quarter earnings report scheduled for next week.“The administration doesn’t matter to their valuation or their market opportunity,” said Cash, who has a $13 price target on the stock. “They’ve been through both sides, Democrat and Republican. They’re not new to this, just newly public.”- Advertisement – Peter Thiel, co-founder and chairman of Palantir Technologies Inc., speaks during a news conference in Tokyo, Japan, on Monday, Nov. 18, 2019.Kiyoshi Ota | Bloomberg | Getty Images – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Just before Palantir’s market debut, the Defense Department said it awarded the company a $91.2 million contract to provide research and development to the Army Research Laboratory over the next two years. Palantir has been growing by continuing to get big government deals while also building up its roster of private sector clients.Cash said the company has a “nice pipeline of contracts,” including business with customers using its data tools for Covid 19 response, whether in public health or to route medical supplies.He also said that Palantir could be in position to win business even in an administration that’s pulling back on defense spending, because the company has been moving deeper into software and away from consulting, making its products more efficient.“If a deflationary spending environment for defense happens, it can be to their benefit,” Cash said. “Agencies probably can’t take on these expensive multi-year consulting efforts but instead would look to use off-the-shelf solutions that are already made.”WATCH: Palantir’s potential customer base is a fundamental issueread more
