first_imgA play on Lance’s comment after winning the Sestriere mountain stage at the 1999 Tour de France. Damien Hirst, the artist that brought us such objects as the diamond encrusted skull (shown after the break), has designed this butterfly job for Lance’s latest custom Trek Madone.  It’s rumored this is the bike he’ll ride during the final stage of this year’s Tour de France, then it’ll be auctioned as part of his Stages charity benefit.  This bike follows in the footsteps of the other custom Madones by Shepard Fairey, Barry McGee, and KAWS.Check out the matching aero wheels after the break, along with another custom Madone by Futura that we’d never seen before… The Bontrager deep “v” rims get the butterfly treatment, too.I think a diamond encrusted Madone might attract more attention…The next one was actually done back in 2008, we’d just never seen it before.  It’s by NYC artist Futura, and it’s calle the Big Apple Madone.  Click the images to enlarge:last_img read more

first_img“It’s early, and we have people that haven’t thrown that much and they’re learning. I know that they’ll get to where we need them to be,” Allister said.During her second appearance — a 10-5 loss to Fordham — Anderson struggled early and often.Before she could record an out, Allister removed her from the circle.Anderson faced eight batters and allowed eight runs to cross the plate.After Anderson’s replacement, sophomore Hannah Evavold gave up a run in one inning, Stober took to the circle again. She faced 20 batters and allowed one run off of five hits.Allister has preached the importance of having two of the three phases — pitching, hitting and defense — in order to win.But over the weekend, Minnesota’s pitching fell short.“[Pitcher] is the most important position on the field. It doesn’t matter who you are or who you’re playing, [pitching] is a factor,” Allister said. Minnesota’s pitchers falter in three-loss weekendMinnesota lost three of the four games it played over the weekend.Daily File Photo; Jaak JensenMinnesota’s Nikki Anderson pitches during a doubleheader against Wisconsin on Sunday, April 7, 2013, at Jane Sage Cowles Stadium. Matt GreensteinMarch 2, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintStrong pitching helped the Gophers win all but one of their first 14 games this season.But over the weekend, while in Florida, Minnesota’s pitching assisted in three losses.The Gophers won only one of four games.Last year, then-sophomore Nikki Anderson pitched 42 innings mostly in relief appearances.But over the weekend, the junior pitched less than five innings, giving up 12 runs — 10 earned.Anderson’s struggles were visible during the Gophers’ second game — an 8-2 loss against James Madison — with a 4.2 inning relief appearance. She came in for freshman Kylie Stober.Stober gave up four runs on six hits in just more than one inning pitched.She took the loss, but of James Madison’s 18 hits, 12 were against Anderson.Earlier this season, head coach Jessica Allister said Minnesota’s pitching staff will get back to the “1A-1B” pitching rotation it had with sophomore Sara Groenewegen and Sara Moulton last year.But the Gophers have some work to do before getting there, and Anderson’s weekend solidified that.last_img read more

first_img More of our Members in the Media > The New York Times:Just be yourself.The advice is as maddening as it is inescapable. It’s the default prescription for any tense situation: a blind date, a speech, a job interview, the first dinner with the potential in-laws. Relax. Act natural. Just be yourself.But when you’re nervous, how can you be yourself? How you can force yourself to relax? How can you try not to try?It makes no sense, but the paradox is essential to civilization, according to Edward Slingerland. He has developed, quite deliberately, a theory of spontaneity based on millenniums of Asian philosophy and decades of research by psychologists and neuroscientists.He calls it the paradox of wu wei, the Chinese term for “effortless action.” Pronounced “ooo-way,” it has similarities to the concept of flow, that state of effortless performance sought by athletes, but it applies to a lot more than sports. Wu wei is integral to romance, religion, politics and commerce. It’s why some leaders have charisma and why business executives insist on a drunken dinner before sealing a deal.Read the whole story: The New York Timeslast_img read more

first_imgHowever, LAPD understands with fewer vehicles on the roadway it may provide more opportunities for speeding due to the lack of congestion. In addition, there are more children and families out walking, jogging, and crossing the road than previous years. LAPD wants to urge motorists to slow down and assist them in their efforts for speed reduction.  It is important to remember that speed limits may not even be the “safe speed”, especially when you add more pedestrians and cyclists. When you drive in a neighborhood with grades, curves, parked vehicles, etc. it creates hazards that should require a prudent driver to reduce their speed. Los Alamos County has a specific ordinance to address this issue called the “Basic Speed Rule”.No person shall drive a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing. Consistent with the foregoing, every person shall drive at a safe and appropriate speed when approaching and crossing an intersection, when approaching and going around a curve, when approaching a hill crest, when traveling upon any narrow or winding street, and when special hazards exist with respect to pedestrians or other traffic or by reason of weather or highway conditions.LAPD wants the public to assist them in keeping the above rule in mind. LAPD also is working with Traffic & Streets to deploy speed monitoring devices in problem areas. They also have sent letters to certain neighborhoods asking for help in speed reduction. LAPS believes if they work with local citizens they can continue to keep Los Alamos safe.There is a Traffic Board zoom meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6. Cmdr. Oliver Morris will attend the meeting to hear any public comment on traffic concerns.The community is invited to attend the Zoom webinar.When: Aug 6, 2020 05:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)Topic: Transportation Board Monthly MeetingClick the link below to join the webinar:https://zoom.us/j/97630631133?pwd=VmhxZ2IxcnlJd2gzRlVoSGVxMURPZz09Passcode: 833325 LAPD Cpl. David Boe conducting speed enforcement near the golf course. Courtesy/LAPDLAPD News:The Los Alamos Police Department has noticed an increase in speeding concerns from the Los Alamos public over the last month. These concerns have come in a variety of forms to include; social media posts, emails, phone calls, and citizens utilizing the crime-tip submission tool on the LAPD website.LAPD wants to take the opportunity to assure the public these concerns are being addressed and it is an area of focus for traffic safety in the community. Extra Patrols have been communicated to each shift sergeant who is responsible for ensuring their units respond to areas of concern.Between March 1 and July 31, LAPD officers have made 768 traffic stops and written 578 citations. This is down from the same time period in 2019 where they made 1,120 traffic stops and wrote 902 citations.  There are several factors for this related to the COVID-19 pandemic, however LAPD is still enforcing traffic laws to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians. Traffic counts are lower due to the partial closures of LANL, school closures between March and May, and other closures.  A recent study of traffic counts on Trinity Drive revealed it is seeing about 50 percent of the normal traffic compared to previous years.  Traffic crashes have declined compared to the previous year, (see chart). last_img read more

first_imgAt the annual meeting for WM Morrison in Bradford – which is normally a sleepy affair where the most exciting thing for shareholders is the lunch – the man who built the business into a leading grocery chain compared management’s existing strategy to “bullshit”.Sir Ken Morrison is renowned for speaking his mind, but his comments to Morrisons’ chief executive Dalton Philips reverberated around the industry. Days later, another former chief executive of one of the “big four” supermarkets, this time Sir Terry Leahy, described the performance of his company Tesco as “very disappointing”.Of course, for Morrisons and Tesco these interventions are not particularly helpful. But more than anything else, they highlight that there is tension at the top of the grocery industry about the direction the leading companies should take.The reason for this chaos is that Morrisons and Tesco are churning out quarterly sales figures that are the worst in a generation. Morrisons’ like-for-like sales tumbled by an eye-watering 7.1% in the 13 weeks to 24 May, while Tesco’s like-for-likes fell by 4% in the UK in the three months to the end of May. Philip Clarke, chief executive of Tesco, admitted this was the worst performance he had seen in his 40 years at the company.Despite protests from some leading industry figures that the pressure on Tesco, Asda, J Sainsbury and Morrisons is cyclical, a structural change is taking place in the grocery industry.While UK grocery sales rose by just 1.7% in the 12 weeks to May 25, Aldi grew by 35.9% and Lidl 22.7% in the same period. Clarke has stated that one of the reasons the German discounters are growing so fast is that they are opening 50 stores a year each while the major supermarkets end the so-called “space race”.Other critics of the discounters claim that they are simply benefiting from the fact that wages have only just started to grow ahead of prices for most British families, while Sainsbury’s boss Justin King says the combined market share of the discounters is no bigger than 20 years ago when KwikSave was a big player.Sure, Aldi and Lidl hold just 8.1% of the market compared to 29% for Tesco, but the German discounters are gathering a head of steam that is taking more and more spending from out-of-town supermarkets.If you visit an Aldi or Lidl car park you will see BMW, Mercedes and Audi cars. The discounters are attracting a new kind of shopper, one that the UK boss of Lidl describes as “Maidstone mums”.Many British families are no longer embarrassed to shop at Aldi or Lidl; indeed they take pleasure in finding bargains and rave about the quality of the fresh food. They welcome the consistency and transparency of the pricing – you can write a shopping list and know how much your food will cost.The German discounters have built a virtuous circle for themselves – growing sales are leading to more investment for better-located stores, improved food and a growing market.One respected City analyst predicted to me last week that Aldi and Lidl are on course to claim 15% of the UK grocery market within the next few years, or 20% if the big four do not properly respond.It is this issue of the response that is splitting the big four. Do they fully commit to a price war and lower prices across their stores? Or do they attempt to protect their profit margin?The second option now looks unsustainable. It is this tactic that got the supermarkets into trouble in the first place. Tesco tried to sustain a 6% profit margin in the UK – one of the highest margins in the industry worldwide – but customers now wonder what the benefit is to them of Tesco being so large and profitable. This has given Aldi and Lidl the room to breathe, and they are taking full advantage.In the 1990s and early 2000s the big four could offset these pressures by opening more stores. However, every British postcode now has a supermarket, and the internet has opened shoppers’ eyes to the choices available.The rise of the German discounters has parallels to the growth of Easyjet and Ryanair in the early 1990s. The established airlines such as British Airways initially dismissed the low-cost airlines because they did not believe that British holidaymakers would sacrifice the higher service levels to fly at a lower price. They were wrong.Sir Ken and Sir Terry are right to be concerned that the major supermarkets could make the same mistakes today. The financial firepower of Morrisons and Tesco means they can respond, but at the moment they are not stopping Aldi and Lidl.Graham Ruddick is retail correspondent at the Daily Telegraphlast_img read more

first_imgThe floating rate facility is priced at three month LIBOR plus a margin of 4%. The proceeds will be used to redeem the Company’s outstanding NOK 124 million Bond. The Fortis loan can be drawn down at any time until March 1, 2010. Fairstar has presented its Bondholders with an option to extend the repayment date of the NOK Bond until March 1, 2010. Norsk Tillitsmann, acting as Trustee for the Bondholders, is currently discussing this option with the Bondholders. A meeting with the Bondholders has been set for Friday October 2, 2009. Mark de Haas, CFO of Fairstar commented: “The capital markets remain extremely challenging. Fairstar is now methodically reducing our long-term liabilities. However, maintaining a conservative level of liquidity is the most prudent way for us to manage our business and our balance sheet. The Fortis facility is another vote of confidence in our ability to maintain a sustainable leadership position in the off-shore heavy transport industry” In addition the company has advised that it has signed a contract with Saipem to transport the jack-up rig Perro Negro 3 from India to Dubai. Fairstar’s semi-submersible transport vessel Fjell is now underway from Singapore. The transport from the loading location to the discharge site is expected to require about 14 days including time for the actual float-on and float-off of the rig. Total contract value is approximately EUR 1.2 million. Philip Adkins, CEO of Fairstar stated: “We are delighted to have been selected by Saipem to transport this valuable cargo. Fairstar has the opportunity to demonstrate the performance of Fjell, and our team on board, to a major energy company. The contract creates important revenue for Fairstar now and is a significant step towards our goal of establishing Fairstar as a leader in the harsh and demanding world of offshore heavy transport.”last_img read more
