Giggs: Top-four finish is on for Man Utd

first_imgRyan Giggs says “the top four is on for Manchester United”, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having helped to establish momentum and keep the Red Devils from looking over their shoulder.Under Jose Mourinho, qualification for the Champions League appeared to be a distant dream for those at Old Trafford.A difficult start to the 2018-19 campaign had left United well off the pace and having to contend with constant talk of internal rifts and unhappy players.

Smiles have been returned to faces under Solskjaer, though, with a former fan favourite having overseen six successive wins, and there is now just a six-point gap to be bridged in order to secure a return to Europe’s most prestigious club competition.United legend Giggs believes a lofty finish will be secured, telling Sky Sports: “I believe the top four is on for Manchester United. Momentum is key. When you get to this part of the season and have a bit of momentum it is hard to stop.“Chelsea are at Arsenal on Saturday, and we fancy ourselves against Brighton, so we could get even closer to Chelsea.“If you look back a month ago it was not even on the table really so to turn it around in such a short space of time, with the games we have coming up, top four is definitely the target.

Obviously everyone says they are games he should have won but there were some tricky games – Newcastle and Tottenham away for example.“Ole has done fantastic, the players have as well, the place has been lifted. It’s a different atmosphere now, I’ve been to a couple of games and it’s been brilliant, the manner we have won them by scoring lots of goals.“Then we had to dig a result out at Tottenham, first half we were fantastic and the second half David de Gea put on an amazing performance and we rode our luck a little bit.

Ban on Sugary Drinks at Public Health Facilities Jan. 1, 2019

first_imgAs of January 1, 2019, sugary drinks will be banned from public health facilities, says Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton.In an interview with JIS News at the Caribbean Wellness Day Symposium, held at the Spanish Court Hotel, in New Kingston, on September 14, the Minister said a tone must be set for persons not to drink themselves to sickness, and while patients in the public health system are guided by nutritionists, “for the general consumption, we will be discouraging those products.”“We believe that we need to set the example, and there are thousands of persons who work in the hospitals, so we want to set the tone and the culture within the public health system,” the Minister said.He explained that the ban will affect what can be sold by concessionaires, and others selling at public hospitals and health centres.The Minister pointed out that sensitisation is ongoing, and come next January, administrators at the institutions will a “critical part of the enforcement.”During his contribution to the 2018/2019 Sectoral Debate, Dr. Tufton spoke of the impending restriction of certain types of sugary drinks in schools and health facilities, and made an appeal for increased consumption of water and fruit juices.He told the House of Representatives that there was evidence that excessive consumption of drinks with added sugar aid in the generation of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).Dr. Tufton told the Caribbean Wellness Day Symposium that NCDs are a “clear and present” danger to Jamaica, particularly diabetes and hypertension, and that overweight is a known risk factor.last_img read more

Onex to buy US insurance business USI for 23billion

TORONTO — Toronto-based conglomerate Onex Corp. has an agreement to acquire U.S. insurance company USI in a friendly deal valued at US$2.3-billion.USI is a privately held affiliate of Goldman Sachs with more than 3,300 employees in about 100 offices across the United States, including a headquarters in the New York City area.It deals in property and casualty insurance, employee benefits and retirement consulting.Goldman Sachs, the New York-based investment banking giant, acquired USI in 2007. There had been media reports since September that it was seeking to sell the company.Sumit Rajpal, a managing director at GS Capital Partners said, in a statement on Monday that “we are pleased with the company’s performance over the last several years.”“Since our take-private in 2007, USI has successfully integrated operations and developed a common operating platform with industry-leading margins, differentiated acquisition capabilities, and a strong platform for organic growth,” Rajpal said.Onex is a Canadian conglomerate involved in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, real-estate, movie theatres and sugar refining. It typically invests a relatively small amount of its own capital in friendly deals on behalf of itself and institutional partners.The USI deal includes a $700-million equity investment in USI through Onex Partners III. Onex owns about 25 per cent of the partnership and manages it on behalf of itself and the other partners.Once the acquisition is completed, USI will be co-owned by Onex, Onex Partners III and employees of USI.Robert Le Blanc, an Onex managing director, said USI “is well positioned to continue to grow both organically and by building on its track record of successful acquisitions.”Among USI’s recent deals was its purchase of a U.S. insurance subsidiary of TD Bank. That deal, announced in September, was expected to contribute $582.2 million in annual revenue to USE. Other terms weren’t disclosed.Mike Sicard, USI’s chief executive officer, said in a statement that “we look forward to our next phase of growth in partnership with Onex.”Founded in 1994, USI operates in 26 states and has its headquarters in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y. It’s ranked as the ninth largest insurance broker in the United States and 13th largest in the world. read more

Resolving Pesky Reoccurring SIP Trunk Problems

Log in or register to post comments Some IP PBXs and SBCs come with five to 50 licenses, and licenses can often be added in increments of four, five, 10, etc., so there is no uniformity among providers. SIP licenses are an additional cost on top of the SIP trunk provider charges. IP PBX and SBC licenses are forever. Some IP PBXs and SBCs have limited licensing sizes, meaning that when you buy a small IP PBX it usually has an upper limit to the number SIP sessions it can support There will be no refunds for over buying, so it’s important to determine the peak number of sessions and then acquire the appropriate number of licenses.Tags:Best PracticesThe SIP SchoolIP PBXSBCSIP trunksSIP/SIP TrunkingMonitoring, Management and Security Articles You Might Like You should test the configuration, features to be implemented, and the capacity (number of simultaneous calls) that is required. Make no assumptions. Functional tests are of value, but successful functional tests do not indicate that there will be success once there is a full traffic load. Audio problems are common. Not all carriers offer G.711 end-to-end. It may be G.711 at the edges but compressed to G.729 before entering the network, blocking FAX, PC modems, music on hold, and telemetry connections. Test the codec settings to ensure they match and for one-way audio before initializing the SIP trunk connection. Audio quality problems are more likely associated with there not being QoS in use, or there not being enough bandwidth allocated for the trunk. When looking for ways to avoid SIP implementation problems, focusing on configuration control and management is a great place to start. Most of the time there are not problems with the technology; it is mature. Looking at The SIP School’s survey, most of the problems can be avoided if you reduce configuration errors and negligence. See All in SIP/SIP Trunking » 8X8: More Than Cloud… Top-Rated in SIP Satisfaction John Malone September 12, 2019 Often thought of as a cloud UC and contact center provider, 8×8 has seen gains in the SIP trunk market – making fans along the way. Don’t TweakSome technicians keep tweaking the configuration and settings until the SIP connections work. This can be a dangerous practice, as the tweaking can turn off features, change security, or produce a liability that will show up later. For example, Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Real Time Protocol (SRTP) may be inadvertently turned off, thereby eliminating the security features. Codec changes or more/fewer ports on the SBC could be configured improperly. Sangoma Leader in SIP Trunking for Small Businesses John Malone October 03, 2019 Customers give Sangoma four stars in all satisfaction measurements in 2019 Eastern Management Group survey. Resolving ProblemsOne of the reasons failures occur is that the configured timeouts are too short. Before you declare a failure, verify the timeouts and ensure that they are not too short. When registration is not stable, first verify that the Internet connection is operating properly. Check the refresh time in the trunk’s overflow and adjust the failure rate settings (“Keep Alive Time”) to about 20 seconds. If registration does not work at all, verify that the correct password and authentication are in use. Preventing ProblemsThere will be at least three external interested parties to the SIP trunk implementation — IP PBX/UC vendor, session border controller (SBC) vendor, and SIP trunk provider. In addition, there will probably be a value-added reseller (VAR) as part of the implementation project. As an enterprise, your staff is also a participant. Do not take the responsibility of coordinating these participants without getting them together before and during the SIP trunk implementation. You are not the SIP trunk expert. They are. SIP vendors and providers have checklists of what they will perform during the implementation process. Obtain these checklists and verify that they have used the checklists to validate the installations. If there are no checklists, create your own by communicating with other enterprises that have implemented SIP trunks. And use the 2018 SIP Survey to anticipate the issues that can occur. When trunks continue to drop after some successful operation, check the provider’s IP connection. Check the configuration settings on the SBC. Set up a signaling trace to verify that the SIP signaling is operating properly. If a firewall is connected to the SIP trunk, verify that the firewall will pass and not filter SIP signaling. It could be blocking the SIP signaling. Use G.711 end-to-end for call centers and provision up to 20% more channels and bandwidth than calculatedDo not implement silence suppression unless there are more than 24 channels and fax transmissions as well as music on hold are turned offTest the SIP trunk operation with the SBC connected, and test at full load cog-wheels_774.png The SBC and/or the IP PBX should have the ability to detect ITSP/SIP server failures. The enterprise cannot fix this problem, but rapid notification to the providers by the enterprise will reduce the outage time. If this kind of problem persists, however, consider terminating the SIP trunk agreement. How About Licenses?A SIP license per SIP trunk path/session/call is required for the IP PBX and the SBC. If you don’t have enough licenses, you will run into blocked calls. Do You Have Enough Bandwidth?Bandwidth can seriously affect the voice quality and the number of simultaneous sessions/calls. Over-design wastes money and requires more bandwidth. Under-design blocks calls, frustrates customers, and can affect call quality. More recommendations include: 5 Reasons SIP Trunking is Alive and Well Irwin Lazar August 26, 2019 The SIP trunking market continues to thrive, even as organizations move to the cloud. Twilio Rated Top in SIP Customer Satisfaction, Again John Malone September 18, 2019 With its high customer satisfaction rating and focus on R&D, Twilio is making a name for itself in the SIP trunking market. When it comes to avoiding codec issues, look for a SIP trunk provider that has the capability to dynamically select a codec that the PBX side prefers (G.711, G.729, G.722, H.264). SIP trunking does not yet appear to be a commodity implementation. As the results of The SIP School’s 2018 SIP and Cloud survey show, problems persist, year over year, on both the provider and equipment sides. You can read more on those problems in my last two blogs — here and here — but now, let’s take a closer look at problem prevention and resolution for SIP trunk implementations. Flowroute Top-Rated SIP Trunk Provider in 2019 John Malone August 21, 2019 Out of 29 providers, Eastern Management Group found Flowroute ranked as top SIP trunk vendor for 2019 and received four stars in multiple categories by customers. When this kind of tweaking is performed, ensure that adequate and correct documentation is produced so there is an audit trail available. That way, if problems occur in the future, you’ll know where to look. If everything is not documented, the tweaking starts all over again and the enterprise will continue to encounter outages or poor operation. read more

The first batch was returned from Dominica on Sunday, October 8, via a Trans Guyana Airlines flight.Major Sean Welcome, Preparedness and Response Manager of CDC said that CDC has also utilised the services of the airlines to take in non-perishable food items. He commended the airlines for playing such a vital role in the process of aiding the affected persons.Guyana’s effort to aid these affected territories began on September 17, when Minister Felix led a Guyana’s Needs Assessment team to aforementioned islands to meet with affected Guyanese nationals.11 containers with food supplies have since been deployed to the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA).

Catch up on some big stories.Unless you go up a mountain, a light rain jacket should be enough this week, but local weather coverage is online here to double-check.Auto theft is dropping; officials work to cut it furtherWhen Rhonda Ouchida’s co-worker at Urban Styles Salon and Spa said she didn’t see Ouchida’s car parked outside, the nail technician just laughed.“I didn’t think anything of it,” Ouchida said. “I laughed and said, ‘It’s out there. I’m here.’”The 52-year-old drives to work and always kept her 1995 Honda Accord in the same spot outside the salon, which is in a complex near the Battle Ground Cinema. So, when her ride was stolen in broad daylight on Dec. 19 last year, she was shocked and frustrated.“I walked out of work thinking I lost my mind,” she said. “Where did my car go?”On the day after Christmas, a week after the theft, Battle Ground police told Ouchida her car had been recovered and she would need to retrieve it from a tow yard in Clackamas, Ore. She paid about $450 in fees to get her car back. Whoever stole it apparently removed her radio, damaging the dashboard in the process, and stole some valuables she had in the trunk.Ouchida’s narrative echoes thousands of others in Clark County.

Women find edited Instagram selfies less authentic

first_imgNew York: Women may perceive selfies on Instagram and other social media sites as less authentic if they know it has been edited, a new study suggests. The findings, published in the journal Body Image, suggest that when women believed that selfies of thin and sexualised women had been edited, viewing these images had less negative impact on their mental health. “Women see the edited photos as less authentic and it reduces the negative effect these images can have on them. They know that the online images might not reflect an offline reality,” said lead author Megan Vendemia from The Ohio State University in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAccording to the researcher, many studies have found that viewing thin and sexualised images of models or others can lead women to put more value on being slender themselves – a line of thinking called thin ideal internalisation. This internalisation can in turn lead to eating disorders or other psychological problems. But the findings suggested that women were less likely to internalise the thin ideal if they believed the pictures they viewed were edited. For the study, the team involved 360 female college students who were told that study was designed to determine how people evaluate images that appear on popular social media sites.last_img read more

Snapchat Is Making the UK Its International Headquarters

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 2 min read Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, has chosen to base its international headquarters in the UK, the Financial Times first reported on Tuesday.The move is unusual for a U.S.-based tech firm. Companies including Facebook, Uber and Google have chosen other European countries including Ireland and the Netherlands as their international base to take advantage of lower corporation tax rates.Snap confirmed it would not be routing sales made in the UK through other European countries for tax reasons, saying sales in countries where Snap does not have a local office or salesforce would also be booked in the UK.Claire Valoti, the general manager of Snap Group Limited in the UK, said in a statement: “We believe in the UK creative industries. The UK is where our advertising clients are, where more than 10 million daily Snapchatters are and where we’ve already begun to hire talent.”Snap first opened its UK office in 2015, and it now has 75 staff members there, many of whom have been hired from rival tech firms. Valoti was hired from Facebook at the end of 2015, and other recent hires include Ricky Leatham from Amazon, who leads the UK engineering team, and Andy Pang, who joined from Instagram to lead the company’s measurement division in the region.Snap Group Limited resides in a three-floor office in London’s Soho neighborhood, but the company says it is set to open an additional site nearby.Snap confidentially filed paperwork with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last year to go public in 2017. The company is seeking a valuation of $20 billion to $25 billion, a source familiar with the matter told Business Insider in November.

Analyst Gains the Housing Market Has Made Are Good Enough

first_img Blackstone Mortgage Trust Homebuyers Housing Market 2015-04-28 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News The CEO of the largest single private homeowner in the U.S. said that buying a home now is a “good investment” and that the recent gains the housing market has made are “good enough” for a buyer to invest in a home during a recent interview with CNBC.Speaking from the Milken Institute Conference in Los Angeles, Blackstone Mortgage Trust CEO Steve Schwarzman told CNBC on Monday that the housing market has been “coming back for quite some time” even though inventory is low and prices have not increased as much. For example, Black Knight Financial Services reported earlier this week a year-over-year median price gain of 4.6 percent for single-family homes in February.”We’re finding that that market continues to go up for the value of houses, although not at the same rate as it did, obviously, off the bottom,” Schwarzman said.Blackstone is the largest single private owner of residential homes in the U.S. with approximately 47,000 homes and about $90 billion in real estate assets. Schwarzman said his company is putting money into the housing market, although not as much as it was during the height of the financial crisis.”We’re only building about half of the houses we did at the top of the last cycle,” Schwarzman said. “People need to be in houses as immigration continues in the United States.”Schwarzman’s assessment of the housing market was similar to that of Tim Rood, chairman of the Washington, D.C.-based business advisory firm The Collingwood Group, who said in a recent interview on Westwood One Radio Network that now was a good time to invest in a home because of low interest rates and anticipated home value appreciation.”The leveraged return if you put down 10 percent on a house, the trajectory of appreciation lately is you’re going to get your money back inside of a year and then after that 5 to 10 percent appreciation rates,” Rood said. “It’s phenomenal.”The topic of the housing market and whether or not now is a good time to buy will be covered more in depth at the 2015 Five Star Conference and Expo, which will be September 16 through 18 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of the MReport and TheMReport.com.
