Government warns News Corp over BSkyB bid probe

first_img whatsapp The government said it was thinking about referring News Corp’s proposed £7.5bn buyout of BSkyB for a prolonged investigation.The media regulator had examined the deal over fears it would give News Corp’s Rupert Murdoch too much influence over the media and public opinion.The government said that Ofcom had recommended that the deal should be referred to the Competition Commission but Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he would first consider proposals put forward by News Corp to alleviate competition concerns.“As a result of these meetings and my consideration of the Ofcom report and subsequent submissions from the parties involved I still intend to refer the merger to the Competition Commission,” Hunt said in a statement.“On the evidence available, I consider that it may be the case that the merger may operate against the public interest in media plurality.“However, before doing so it is right that I consider any undertakings in lieu offered by any merging party which have the potential to prevent or otherwise mitigate the potential threats to media plurality identified in the Ofcom report.” Tuesday 25 January 2011 3:01 am More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img Share John Dunne Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads Government warns News Corp over BSkyB bid probe last_img read more

Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your name here Get rid of standing water around your home. “Tip, Toss and Cover.In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew Orange County Government’s Mosquito Control Division encourages citizens to take an active role in reducing their exposure to mosquitoes. Educating yourself with information about the Zika virus is an important preventive measure for you, your family and the community.Remember: The mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus are “urban” mosquitoes and rely on humans for survival. These insects are typically day biters and are drawn to standing water in small, artificial containers. They lay their eggs in shallow water and it takes only five days for the larvae to develop into adults. Therefore, it’s essential to get rid of standing water around your home and “Tip, Toss and Cover.Following are some common myths about the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus.1. MYTH: I live close to ponds, swamps and lakes, so I’m more at risk for Zika because mosquitoes live and breed in those areas.TRUTH: Although there are up to 40 mosquito species in Central Florida, the two types of mosquitoes that can potentially transmit the Zika virus – Aedes aegypti (Yellow Fever mosquito) and Aedes albopictus (Asian Tiger mosquito) – do NOT breed in wetlands such as ponds, swamps and lakes. These types of mosquitoes are “urban” mosquitoes and they rely on humans for survival. These insects are typically day biters and are drawn to standing water in small, artificial containers. They lay their eggs in shallow water and it takes only five days for the larvae to develop into adults. Therefore, it’s essential to get rid of standing water around your home and “Tip, Toss and Cover.”2. MYTH: The mosquitoes that potentially carry Zika can travel far and fly long distances.TRUTH: These mosquitoes tend to travel about 150 yards from where they are born. Females live about a month and males have a shorter life span. That’s why it’s so important to get rid of the standing water around your home. Remember, it’s not the mosquitoes that move this virus, it’s people who move the virus.3. MYTH: If I’m not pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, I don’t have to worry about Zika.TRUTH: Although the most serious health risks of Zika pertain to pregnant women because the virus has been linked to cause a significant birth defect known as microcephaly, this is an issue that every citizen should be concerned and vigilant about in their prevention measures. If you are carrying the Zika virus and a mosquito bites you, that mosquito may contract Zika and infect the next person it bites. The virus is spread from mosquito to human to mosquito to human. Humans can also transmit the virus sexually. Only one in five people exhibit symptoms from the virus, and thus, may unknowingly have the virus and transmit it to someone else.4. MYTH: You can get rid of the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus just by spraying.TRUTH: Spraying is part of the solution in targeting mosquitoes. It’s comforting to know that the spray’s active ingredient, which is found in many flea and tick treatments and shampoos for dogs as well as lice treatments, is not harmful to humans. Unfortunately, you can’t “spray your way” out of this problem. Spraying isn’t as effective with these mosquitoes primarily because spraying is not done during the day when these mosquitoes are active. Spraying is typically done after sundown because the control materials in the spray are broken down by sunlight. In the evening, these day-biting mosquitoes can rest and hide in plants and under leaves. The most effective way to control these insects is to get rid of their larvae habitat – and that is achieved by eliminating standing water.5. MYTH: My pets are at risk for Zika.TRUTH: There is no indication that Zika affects anyone but mosquitoes and humans.6. MYTH: Certain types of animals can control the mosquito population.TRUTH: Animals such as bats, owls and other birds cannot control the mosquito population. Although they may include mosquitoes in their diet, they do not consume enough mosquitoes to make a significant difference in their populations. The mosquitoes that carry Zika are day biters, so they’re on a different schedule than nocturnal bats.7. MYTH: These types of mosquitoes are new and have recently traveled to Florida.TRUTH: The Yellow Fever mosquito was introduced to the United States in the late 1800s and the Asian Tiger mosquito arrived in the 1980s. Orange County Mosquito Control has been combatting these types of mosquitoes for decades. Orange County has been proactively and aggressively combatting these mosquitoes because they can also potentially carry chikungunya and dengue fever, which produce flu-like symptoms characterized by a high fever and joint pain. Proactive measures by Mosquito Control have always included targeting these types of mosquitoes.8. MYTH: These mosquitoes can breed in damp soil.TRUTH: Damp soil, patches of wet grass or damp leaves are not breeding grounds for these types of mosquitoes. Mosquito larvae are aquatic organisms. The preferred breeding habitat is standing or still water. As little as one teaspoon or bottle cap of water standing for more than one week is enough for mosquitoes to breed and multiply. At least once a week, empty, turn over or cover anything that could hold water.

Patterson on critics: Why do you have to be the most complete team?

first_imgTwitter TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Facebook Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Sarah Breunerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sarah-breuner/ Sarah Breuner Sarah Breunerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sarah-breuner/ Sarah Breunerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sarah-breuner/ printGary Patterson has long held the mantra of winning by one.Even when the TCU football team beat Texas Tech by 55 points last season, Patterson said that wasn’t the goal.The margin last Thursday may not have been run-out-of-fireworks size, but the No. 5 Horned Frogs’ 40-10 routing of West Virginia certainly made a statement.At 6 p.m. this Tuesday, the College Football Playoff (CFP) Committee will release its first rankings of the 2015-2016 season on ESPN.Rankings from different organizations have come out since August, but as TCU fans learned last year, the rankings that matter most are those from “the committee.”Playing on primetime leading up to the first CFP rankings of the season may have helped the Frogs, and playing well, even more so.“They chose us to be on TV on a Thursday night, and fortunately for us, [we played] well,” Patterson said.The Frogs combined for more than 600 yards of total offense against West Virginia, averaging seven yards per play. The special teams unit didn’t allow a single punt return, and West Virginia’s only kickoff return was less than 20 yards. The defense, which has suffered multiple injuries to starters and been critiqued all season, held the Big 12 Conference opponent to 327 yards and allowed the Mountaineers to score only in the second quarter.Patterson said his defense started to prove itself Thursday.“I’m not going to try to talk to the committee,” he said. “All I hear is we can’t play defense. Well [West Virginia has] a pretty good offense, to be honest with you. Their receivers are good players.”This year’s hype combined with last year’s heartbreak has given Patterson’s squad that much more to fight for. The players know what’s at stake. They are focused on the next game because they know what one loss can do.“We only had one loss last year,” Patterson said Thursday. “That’s all it takes. Didn’t get in the playoffs.”The head coach said despite an influx of injuries and critics this year, this group has kept fighting. Patterson said players may watch the playoff rankings show Tuesday night, but his star quarterback Trevone Boykin won’t be watching.“I probably won’t even watch it to be honest, because it’s the first one and it really doesn’t matter until the season is over with,” Boykin said after the game Thursday. “Until [the end of the season], I really don’t care about it. Right now we’re just focused on our next opponent.”According to its website, the CFP committee ranks teams based on conference championships won (nonexistent in the Big 12), the strength of schedule, head-to-head results (see Baylor and TCU last year), comparison of results against common opponents and other factors.Analysts talk about which teams are the most complete, but Patterson isn’t a fan of the idea.“I keep hearing, well, to be one of those four teams you’ve got to be four of the most complete teams,” he said. “Why is that? Why is it you can’t just outscore people to go win? Why is it you’ve got to be the most complete team? I’ve just got to hold them to one less.”For now, his team just needs to beat No. 12 Oklahoma State by one. George W.

John’s castle all fired up about festival

first_imgNewsLocal NewsJohn’s castle all fired up about festivalBy admin – September 11, 2012 433 Facebook WhatsApp Linkedin Email KING JOHN’S Castle will be ablaze this September but not as a result of enemy attacks with burning arrows. On Saturday, September 15 the streets of Limerick will come alive with the inaugural Elemental Arts and Culture Festival.  The festival encompasses the arts in all their guises, from interactive street art, dance and short films, to street performers and exhibitions. But it will be in the grand finale of the night that the city of Limerick will really shine.  The Elemental team have revealed details of the Night of Fires event which will become the focus of the finale in the castle, a spectacular, the like of which has never been seen in Ireland, it is claimed.  Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Simon Thompson of the Elemental team, explained: “King John’s Castle is a fitting stage for ‘Night of Fires’. As the name suggests, there will be a number of fire-based performances throughout the evening, with the build up beginning at six o’clock, there will be a variety of performers within the castle grounds. “There is a real medieval theme to this event – we are incredibly lucky to have pyrotechnic specialist and special effects expert Hannes Jung taking part, with his Dreaming Flames work. “This dramatic display involves a metal sculpture being set on fire, so that flames lick all around the piece. The glowing interactive fire sculpture looks stunning anyway. Set against the unique backdrop of King John’s Castle, it will be incredible.”Chairman, Pius McGrath said that the fire theme will run right through the course of the three hour spectacular. Local magician and escape artist Steve Spade will bring the evening to a rousing finish, headlining with a debut performance of his illusion ‘Sacrifice’. This burned-at-the stake illusion was choreographed by Morgan Strebler, professional magic advisor from the US, who has designed effects for illustrious performers such as David Blane. In this illusion, Steve will have to fight for his life to escape being burned at the stake and every second countsElemental is the brainchild of an enthusiastic team of individuals involved in the Arts, who want to bring accessible arts and culture to the people of Limerick. Most of the events are free and the 400 or so tickets for the castle performance will cost just €5 each They can be booked in advance through a link on the festival site, www.elementallimerick.com Facebook: www.facebook.com ElementalArtsLimerick  or on Twitter: @ElementalLmkcenter_img Twitter Print Previous article“Hives of activity” to boost Culture NightNext articleGame over ball burst – Sports editor Donn O’Sullivan admin Advertisementlast_img read more
