The Blues fell behind immediately after Diego Costa’s equaliser 1 Antonio Conte singled out Aaron Ramsey’s quick-fire goal as the key reason for his side’s FA Cup final loss to Arsenal.The Blues fell behind to a controversial early Alexis Sanchez goal before Victor Moses was dismissed for a second bookable offence after diving in the penalty area.But despite Diego Costa scoring an equaliser with a quarter of an hour remaining, Chelsea immediately fell behind again, as Ramsey restored the Gunners’ lead.And Conte felt his side’s failure to keep the scores level for a longer period was too difficult to recover from with only 10 men. “I think our start for sure wasn’t good enough,” he said.“Arsenal started the game better than us, honestly I think the goal after three minutes in this way, I think it was not disallowed because there is a clear handball but our start wasn’t good.“Then we started to play, in the second half we started very well and created the chances to equalise.“The second yellow card for Moses was for sure one of the two key moments.“But to play for 10 men, we were able to equalise and then to concede a second goal was a key moment for the loss.”The former Juventus coach also refuted claims his players struggled to raise themselves for the final having already secured the Premier League title.“It is not easy but I think that we won the league and it was right to celebrate and enjoy this win,” he added.“I think that my players put all of themselves into the game, maybe our start wasn’t good and the impact and approach wasn’t good and Arsenal pushed a lot. We paid for this start.”“Per Mertesacker for me is a perfect example for any young professional football player.“What he did today was just a consequence of an unbelievable attitude every day, even if not selected, until the Everton game in the squad.“He played his first game tonight and when he was not selected he worked even harder, which is why I pay a special tribute for him tonight.”

Nelson Mandela’s gravesite in Qunu, in the Eastern Cape, will eventually be opened to the public.Opening Mandela’s gravesite to the public will be one of the projects to mark the centenary of Mandela’s birth in July 1918. (Image: Roel Wijnants)Nelson Mandela’s gravesite in Qunu, now only accessible to family, will be open to the public once developments in the area are completed.“It is something that will happen in the future,” said Ndileka Mandela, the oldest grandchild of the statesman, who died in December 2013, told the Sunday Times newspaper.“It would be selfish of the family to say that we’ll close it to the public, because Madiba was a people’s person. At some point we will open it to the general public.”However, another grandchild, Ndaba Mandela, did say it would still “take some time” as various processes would have to be followed.Grandson Mandla Mandela confirmed discussions about the matter were under way. He also said that the ANC and various sectors of the government would be consulted.“I don’t think this is a family issue only. There has to be a dialogue.”Mandela, who died at the age of 95, is buried on a hill in his childhood Qunu homestead in rural Eastern Cape.His birthday, 18 July, is celebrated later this week. The United Nations has declared the day the annual Nelson Mandela International Day, on which people are encouraged to do something to help others. In South Africa, the day has been expanded into the full month of July, known as Mandela Month.Source: News24WireWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

While the prolonged rains in Maharashtra have led to destruction of crops in many parts of the State, it has also given authorities a breather in tackling drought.According to the drought prediction survey 2019-20, prepared by the Groundwater Surveys and Development Agency (GSDA) of the State government, around 689 villages in 14 tehsils of the State could face water scarcity in 2020. Of these 359 villages may face the problem from January while the rest from April 2020. The survey was released in the first week of November and is available online.As per the survey, the villages which might face water scarcity in 2020 are in Latur, Osmanabad, Solapur, Parbhani, Yavatmal, Amaravati and Chandrapur districts. The GSDA survey for 2018-19 had estimated that 11,487 villages from 167 tehsils would face water scarcity due to rainfall deficit. For this year’s survey, the GSDA had set up 32,769 observation wells where the water levels were measured till October-end. According to the survey, entire Konkan region including Mumbai, Kolhapur, Bhandara, Gondia, and Gadchiroli fall in the region which received more than 1200 mm rainfall while Pune, Satara, Nasik, Nandurbar, Latur, Parbhani, Hingoli, Nanded, Amaravati, Washim, Yavatmal, Nagpur, Wardha and Chandrapur receieve around 1200 mm to 700 mm rainfall. The rest of the State falls in the less than 700 mm rainfall category. “Earlier, the prediction was broadly based on merely 32,00 observation wells. But considering the size of the State, we decided to set up 32,769 wells this time. These were geo-tagged with Maharashtra Remote Sensing Application Centre. The gram panchayat and jal surakshaks were given training. As a result, this report is a product of a survey from almost every village in the State,” said Kaustubh Diwegaonkar, Director, GSDA. He added that the survey will help plan and prepare for drought mitigation methods. “We will be updating the report after incorporating latest reports following the total withdrawal of rains by January,” he added. Considering the geography of Maharashtra, 28% area is a highly dissected plateau, which includes Konkan, western ghats and other hilly regions. At least 44% area is moderately dissected plateau with medium water seepage capacity. The rest of the 28% area is undissected plateau and/or valley fill where groundwater availability is higher. In addition, 82% of the State consists of balsamic rock which has the capacity to store merely 1 to 3% water. Metamorphic rock covers 10% region which too does not hold water. Of the remaining 8%, around 5.5% is sedimentary rock while rest is alluvium where water storage is considerably good, around 5 to 10%.

One of the beliefs that I hold most dear is how proud I am to be an American — and how incredibly thankful I am for our troops. I know how fortunate I am to live in this country, and to do what I do for a living, and to raise my daughters in peace and prosperity. But I also hear from plenty of people who don’t have it nearly as good as I do. Plenty of people who are genuinely struggling in this country. Especially our veterans.“And every single veteran I’ve spoken to, they’ve all said pretty much the exact same thing: That this conversation we’ve started to have in the world of sports … whether it’s been Colin (Kaepernick) kneeling, or entire NFL teams finding their own ways to show unity, or me saying that I didn’t want to go to the White House — it’s the opposite of disrespectful to them.”Kerr applauded his superstar again.“I thought it was beautiful,” Kerr said. “He’s very thoughtful, he’s very compassionate, very smart and he’s humble. I’ve made the comment before that he is incredibly arrogant on the floor and humble off the court.

Junior guard Sam Thompson takes a shot during a game against Penn State Jan. 29 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 71-70.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThad Matta just needed somebody to hug.After Wisconsin sophomore forward Sam Dekker’s last-second heave clanged off the rim Saturday at the Kohl Center, signaling a victory for Ohio State, the jubilation on the Buckeye sideline was clear.The man Matta grabbed was the team’s video coordinator, Jake Diebler, and OSU’s coach said Monday it was because Diebler was the closest guy to him.“He was the first guy I could find,” Matta said with a laugh. “Because I had the line on Dekker’s shot, and I thought it was off to the right and I’ll be honest, I’ve seen what these guys have done. I’ve seen what the staff has done to get us ready to play that game and it was obvious with the ending the other night (against Penn State Wednesday), there was a sense of excitement, a sense of relief.”The sense of relief Matta felt after the 59-58 victory over the Badgers percolated throughout the rest of the team, but senior guard Aaron Craft said it’s not the time to sit back and be satisfied, especially with the Buckeyes set to visit No. 17 Iowa (17-5, 6-3) Tuesday at 7 p.m.“We got a big win the other day, and we don’t want to rest on that either,” Craft said Monday. “Our biggest focus right now is to find a way to be better than Iowa. Everything else will really take care of itself the more we go on.”The Hawkeyes came to Columbus and handed the Buckeyes (17-5, 4-5) their first home loss of the season Jan. 12, a 84-74 outcome where OSU struggled against Iowa’s zone defense.OSU committed 17 turnovers in that loss, something Craft said cannot happen Tuesday.“We just can’t turn the ball over. That’s what cost us the game the first time,” Craft said. “We had the lead, and turned the ball over quite a few times down the stretch … When they’re at their best, they’re getting buckets in transition, getting fouled, getting to the free throw line. That’s what we can’t do if we want to be in it at the end of the game.”Junior forward Sam Thompson, who got his first start of the season in the win against Wisconsin in place of junior guard Shannon Scott, agreed and said in order to figure out the zone, the team just needs a different mindset.“I think it’s just about our mindset on the offensive end against the zone. Last time we played Iowa, we didn’t do a good job of attacking that zone, we really let that zone dictate the way we played on offense,” Thompson said Monday. “We were sort of playing on our heels, moving the ball from side to side and not really looking to attack.”The Buckeyes — who dropped out of the top 25 rankings for the first time since Jan. 2010, when the latest poll was released Monday — also allowed 44 points in the paint against Iowa in the Jan. 12 loss. Fixing that issue isn’t just on one guy either, Craft said.“It’s a team defensive effort. They do a good job of setting good screens and getting guys in the paint, whether it’s tight curling or driving the ball off that,” Craft said. “They’re gonna score in the paint, that’s kind of their MO this year. They score in the paint and they get to the free throw line. So we need to find ways that we can hopefully minimize that as much as possible and not get down or not get frustrated when they do maybe go through a stretch where that happens. You have to find a way to get to the next play and move on.”It is clear OSU is going to need an entire team effort to leave Iowa City with a victory and to win back-to-back games for the first time since starting the season 15-0. Solving the riddle against Wisconsin was a start, Matta said, and continuing it won’t be easy.“That is the plan,” Matta said about getting a few wins in a row. “It’s a lot easier said than done, reeling a couple off. We went in, we won a tough game. You think about the game before that comes down to the last shot, this one comes down to the last shot. I’d love to not be in that position — it’s making me old, but it is what it is … I liked the energy that we had in huddles, down the stretch guys talking saying ‘We gotta do this, we’ve been here before.’ You hope you can build on that.”

In October 2016, the Professional Teaching Practices Commission proposed twelve changes to the Code of Ethics of the Education Profession. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Professional Teaching Practices Commision has added flirting, sexting, and inappropriate touching to the list of things that teachers are not allowed to do with students. The first changed went into effect back in September, including broadening what constitutes ‘sexual misconduct’ and expanding anti-discrimination policy to protect a student’s gender identity. Additional changes are still under review according to the Commision, including a proposal that would not allow for a teacher to get romantically involved with a student for one year after their graduation. Jim Seitz, executive director of the Professional Teaching Practices Commission, says “the state’s code of ethics had not been updated since 2005.” Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-school-code-of-ethics-changed.mp3VmJennifer-on-school-code-of-ethics-changed.mp300:00RPd The Commission made further revisions during their January 2017 meeting and then voted to accept all twelve proposals. The next commission meeting is set for January 29-31, 2018.
