Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now The hustler doesn’t move from where she is to her goal in one step. In fact, the hustler can’t even see what they will ultimately become from where they stand now. The hustler climbs a little higher, and it’s from that new height that they can see further.The hustler starts with the rather humble idea that they can get to the next level. That level might be some entrepreneurial freedom like starting a business, or it might be some financial goal. It doesn’t matter what their goal or vision is, but from where they are now, it is what they can see. This vision is bigger than they are now, and it feels like a stretch.But as the hustler gets closer to that goal, they can see a little further. What used to look a stretch goal is now right in front of them, easily accomplished. Their growth in pursuing their vision or goal has provided them with new eyes. They see further. Things that used to look far away are now squarely in their line of sight.The hustler’s opinion of what is possible for them changes. Their vision and their goals grow exponentially bigger.The hustler looks around at their new, higher level and notices that the people who surround them now are not different. These people want the same things that the hustler wants. They have the same challenges and the same constraints. The hustler notices that some have more talent, but that talent doesn’t seem to make a difference. Some started from a different place, but that hasn’t seemed to stop them from achieving what they’ve achieved.What the hustler notices is that the people who keep seeing further and who keep striving continue to develop a bigger vision of what is possible and the accompanying greater vision of who they can become.From each higher level, the hustler can see further. How far can see from where you are now?How much further could you see if you hustled your way up a little higher?last_img read more

Clashes sparked by Wani’s killing

first_imgNormal life was disrupted in Kashmir on Friday following clashes during a shutdown backed by separatists over the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manan Wani and his associate in an operation in Kupwara on Thursday.Fierce clashes broke out in Srinagar’s Soura immediately after the Friday prayers. The authorities, “as a precautionary measure”, disallowed Friday prayers at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar. A large part of the old city was sealed and main roads closed. “The shutdown in Kashmir to pay homage to deceased Wani sends a strong message to Government of India and reflected the peoples’ deep connect with the cause,” said Hurriyat leader and head priest of the Valley, Mirwaiz Umar Farooqlast_img

Ganguly’s formula for Lords: Spinners need to pick wickets

first_imgRavindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. Photo: PTIFormer Indian captain Sourav Ganguly spoke to Boria Majumdar on India’s performance in the drawn Trentbridge Test and the chances of an Indian win in the next game against England at Lords from July 17-21.Q Are you happy with India’s performance at the Trentbridge Test?A Yes, they have done reasonably well. They were in a position where they could actually force a win in this Test match, but Anderson and Joe Root took the game away from them. That’s probably one area where India did not react properly. Otherwise, I thought that they had a decent Test match.Q You have made this point so many times about Ravindra Jadeja. As a spinner he was not able to beat Jimmy Anderson on the fourth day?A I’ve said that before. Whether it is Ravindra Jadeja or Ravichandran Ashwin, the debate is who should be playing the next Test match. Either of them has to bowl a lot better. We saw Ashwin in South Africa, that’s when we saw Dhoni pick Jadeja. And now we are seeing Jadeja. Maybe he is doing a role by keeping it tight. But at some stage, he’s got to be a wicket-taking bowler. It’s an issue which Dhoni has to assess. Unless and until the spinners take wickets, India cannot win. This [Trentbridge] was a pretty dry surface, similar to what you see in India. It’s slow, you can get beaten in the flight and play on backfoot, but you still need a bit of variation, a bit of flight and turn. I could not imagine our spinners on this surface not turning the ball.advertisementQ In the post match conference, Dhoni said he was satisfied with Jadeja. If you were in Dhoni’s position, would you pick Ashwin at Lords?A We have to see what the pitch is like. If the surface is as dry as this [Trentbridge], I might pick two spinners, but we have to wait and see the pitch. If Dhoni wants to pick Jadeja, he can do that. But at the end of the day whoever he picks needs to pick up wickets. If he thinks Jadeja can do a containment role, that’s fine on Day One of the Test match. But other than that on Days 3,4 and 5, the spinner’s got to come into the game. I think it’s not the batting at that number, but it’s bowler who can pick wickets, whether it is Ashwin or Jadeja or Ojha, xyz, any spinner, he is got to pick wickets.Q Coming to the captain’s batting. On the last day at Trentbridge match, it was his opportunity. If he stayed there and saved the match, it would have been a huge statement. Once again that was a problem, wasn’t it?A Yes, but he played well in the first innings. Though he came at an important situation, yes, they dropped him in first innings but he will have to fight hard to keep getting runs. There is a technical weakness. They exploited it last time when we came to England. He kept nicking it to the slips. Probably, on a pitch with a bit more bounce, pace and movement, which we will see as the series goes on. I don’t think they are going to have flat wickets any more in this Test series. He is batting at 6, which is a good thing. But he has done well in this Test match. He fought hard. It was a different Dhoni innings, just got out in the second innings. We’ll have to wait and see what he does in the future Test matches.last_img read more

University of Toronto owns oldest Englishlanguage book in Canada

first_imgTORONTO – The University of Toronto says it now owns the oldest English-language book in Canada, a 15th century text that introduced ancient ideas to new audiences.The book is an English translation of essays by Roman politician Marcus Tullius Cicero — “De amicitia” (Of Friendship) and “De senectute” (Of Old Age) — published in 1481 by William Caxton, the first person to print English language books.The printed text, which is now part of the collection at the university’s Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, carries the first translation of classical texts to English, said PJ Carefoote, the university’s interim head of rare books and special collections.“A book like this is part of that whole transition that’s going to bring western society out of the Middle Ages into what we now call the modern era, with the Renaissance and the Reformation,” said Carefoote.“It’s an important text from the point of view of what it does for reviving learning in the west, that people now have access to something like Cicero … in their own tongue.”The book, which discusses the ideas of old age and friendship and links the two concepts, came just a few years after the first book printed in English — “The Recuyell of the Histories of Troye” — which Carefoote said was printed by Caxton in either 1473 or 1474.Printed English books from that period are particularly hard to come by because of their significance to the history of the language, Carefoote said.Caxton’s books, which translated established languages like Greek and Latin and were mass produced, helped standardize English at a time when it was a new language with varying dialects, Carefoote explained.“When Caxton, this printer, comes along and starts translating works … multiple copies of an English language (book) — and he chooses specifically the London dialect — are being spread across England,” he said.“English starts to become English, it starts to unify.”A book dealer contacted Carefoote about the Caxton text last year, he said, and donations from the public helped the university acquire the book.The way the book is written means it may not be easy for a first-time reader to immediately understand, said Carefoote.“It’s kind of like reading Shakespeare for the first time — it takes a little bit of time,” said Carefoote, who added that the font can also be difficult to understand at first.“People look at it and say ‘oh, I’m not going to be able to read that,’ and I say just look at it for five minutes, and they all say that after you get used to the form, you read it like anything else.”Having the book at the University of Toronto means that students in the book history and print culture program, who study the origins of technology and culture, can use it as study material, Carefoote said, noting that several other departments are interested in the text as well.The book also marks the Fisher library’s 15 millionth book, which Carefoote said was just a happy coincidence.last_img read more

Western Sahara: Former Moroccan Minister Addresses Letter to John Bolton

Secretary General of Morocco’s Istiqlal Party Nizar Baraka has addressed a letter to  the US national security adviser, John Bolton who said in keynote speech at the Heritage Foundation on December 13 that he was concerned and “frustrated” that the territorial conflict in Western Sahara conflict has still not been resolved.Baraka, who also served as a minister of Finance and Economy, said that  that he shared the same “sense of frustration” expressed by Bolton, “but not for the same reasons.”“For Moroccans, our frustration is deeper as it extends for more than 62 years, because the independence granted to Morocco in March 1956 was a limited independence, so we continued to struggle to complete the territorial integrity of our country, to include our Sahara regions,” Baraka added. Read Also: Bolton ‘Frustrated’ With UN Failure to Resolve Western Sahara DisputeThe former minister added that Morocco is frustrated to see that the “Moroccan Sahara issue is still stalling in the corridors of the United Nations, despite the historical facts that prove the spiritual, cultural, political and administrative ties that have always connected the inhabitants of the southern provinces to the kingdom of Morocco.”Baraka said that Morocco is “really frustrated” as the international community gives the Polisario Front more worth than deserved regarding the representation of the Sahrawi people.He added that censuses made under the auspices of the UN “confirmed that the vast majority of Sahrawis live in Morocco’s territories.”Read Also: Morocco on Alert after Terror Attack on 2 Scandinavian Tourists“The real representatives of the people of the Sahara are the elected [ Saharawis] in the local and regional councils and parliamentarians, who were democratically elected,” he said. Commenting on Morocco’s autonomy plan, Baraka said that Moroccans are frustrated that the Moroccan initiative which presents a mutually acceptable political  solution has not seen the light 11 years after it was submitted to the United Nations.Baraka also condemned the living conditions in Tindouf camps in Algeria, where thousands of Sahrawis live in “unbearable conditions.”Baraka said that Sahrawis who live in “poverty” in the Tindouf camps are “deprived  of their right to freedom of movement, because despite the resolutions of the United Nations and the Security Council, UNHCR has not yet been able to conduct a census” of the Sahrawi population living there. During his address at the Heritage Foundation, Bolton criticized the UN peacekeeping mission for have failing to fulfill their mandates, including the UN mission in Western Sahara, also known as MINURSO.“Ladies and gentlemen, 27 years of deployment of this peacekeeping force, 27 years and it’s still there? How can you justify that? I have got to know over the years the Saharawi people, I have enormous respect for them, I have enormous respect for the government and people of Morocco and Algeria, is there not a way to resolve it?” Bolton said. read more

Ending complacency key to fighting discrimination UN rights chief says

“You cannot defeat discrimination by shutting your eyes to it and hoping that it will go away. Complacency is discrimination’s best friend,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay told a news conference in Geneva, ahead of this year’s Human Rights Day.The theme of this year’s Day, observed annually on 10 December, is “Embrace Diversity: End Discrimination,” and Ms. Pillay shared how she confronted her own prejudices in an earlier stage of her life shaped by the fact that she grew up in apartheid-era South Africa.“We all, and here I include myself, have a tendency to hold ingrained prejudices against certain people because of the group they belong to rather than because of who they actually are as individuals.“It is my hope that starting on this Human Rights Day, people will begin making an extra effort to think about these issues, and about how they as individuals can take action in their own homes, in the workplace and in society at large to first of all identify discrimination, and then tackle it, wherever it raises its ugly head,” said the High Commissioner.As part of the commemoration of the Day, Ms. Pillay will be in South Africa to preside over a panel of high-level judges sitting in the first ever World Human Rights Moot Court competition at the University of Pretoria. Students worldwide will argue a fictional human rights case on the principle of non-discrimination at the event organized by the university and supported by the UN human rights office.Then on 10 December she will speak, along with representatives from the Government, civil society and academia, at a public celebration planned for Freedom Park, which will also feature a performance from South African singer Yvonne Chaka-Chaka.The Day, which commemorates the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly in 1948, will be marked with numerous other events worldwide. 8 December 2009The United Nations human rights chief today called on individuals everywhere to consider how they can fight discrimination beginning in their own homes and workplaces, stressing the need to overcome complacency which only contributes to the scourge. read more

Kosovo UN envoy European official discuss upcoming municipal elections

The United Nations top envoy for Kosovo, Michael Steiner, today met with a senior European official to discuss the province’s second round of municipal elections later this year, to be organized again by the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). “I informed the Foreign Minister about the ongoing talks in this respect: there is a chance that we can achieve elections, on the condition that all the leaders do their job and show the necessary spirit of compromise,” Mr. Steiner told a press conference in Pristina after his meeting with Portugal’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jaime Gama, the OSCE’s current Chairman-in-Office. Last night in a televised address to the people of Kosovo, Mr. Steiner, the chief of the UN Interim Administration Mission (UNMIK), announced that municipal elections would be held on 21 September if the political leaders elected last November to the Assembly acted quickly to form a provisional self-government. The Assembly has yet to agree on key positions, including a President and Prime Minister for the province. Mr. Gama said “because this [process] has a sequence, as an overall exercise for regaining political expression for the people of Kosovo, then it makes sense that local elections take place if there is a result from the previous general elections.” The OSCE Chairman added that he would take this view to the local political leaders today and would tell them that “you are representing the people of Kosovo and should abide by the spirit of negotiation and compromise which are the basic rules for modern politics…I’m sure we will get a result.” Asked if he had a way out to break the deadlock in the Assembly, Mr. Steiner said, “It’s up to those who have been elected to find that solution…If we have the necessary spirit of compromise, if the leaders cannot follow their own party interests, but follow the interest of Kosovo, we will find a solution…I think it is possible to do that and I will work for that to be the outcome.” read more

Deputy UN chief urges Central African lawmakers to act as defenders of

“Reconciliation should be at the heart of all your efforts. To guide the country on the path of peace, reconciliation and development, it is essential to work together,” Mr. Eliasson said on the second day of his visit to the country, where he urged the Assembly to draw on the outcomes of the May 2015 Bangui Forum, a milestone in the country’s reconciliation process. Noting that CAR faced “daunting” challenges – nearly one million Central Africans are displaced; half the population needs humanitarian assistance; and virtually all infrastructure and essential services must be rebuilt – Mr. Eliasson said moving forward would require addressing the root causes of the conflict, end impunity, promoting political openness and fighting against the marginalization of certain groups and certain communities.“You, as parliamentarians, you play a crucial role. You have the power to enact legislation to ensure equality and the well-being of all Central Africans,” he said, adding that the Assembly members have the power to hold the Government to account on its management of the country “and to meet the needs and aspirations of men, women and children that you represent.”More than three years of civil war and sectarian violence have displaced thousands of people in the CAR amid continuing clashes between the mainly Muslim Séléka rebel coalition and anti-Balaka militia, which are mostly Christian. The UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the country, known by its French acronym, MINUSCA, was set up two years ago to protect civilians and assist with the political transition. The Mission now has a troop strength of nearly 10,000.In his remarks, Mr. Eliasson said the month of October has been particularly violent, resulting in the tragic deaths of many people, which many injured, including in the capital, Bangui, as well as Bambari or Kaga Bandoro. “We have learned from these painful events and will do everything in our capacity to prevent such atrocities,” he said.Strongly condemning the violence, he assured the Assembly of the determination of the United Nations “to shed light on the unfortunate incident last Monday in Bangui,” referring to demonstrations against the Government and the United Nations that were accompanied by violence on 24 October. “MINUSCA will support any request by the judicial authorities of the Central African Republic to that effect,” he continued, and the Mission is “unequivocally here to protect the Central African population and will do so impartially. We respect everyone’s right to demonstrate peacefully and protect this right if necessary.” “But I also call on you not to yield to provocative speeches or attempts to destabilize your new democratic institutions by the enemies of peace. We must all [stand] against those who want to prevent the peaceful and resolute march of the country towards more progress and shared prosperity,” the UN deputy chief underscored. Mr. Eliasson went on to reaffirm the deep commitment of the United Nations and the international community to honour fully their partnership with CAR, noting that the UN has provided support in areas such as humanitarian assistance, reconciliation, recovery and development, and through the presence of MINUSCA.“In fulfilling our mission in your country, we will continue to make the protection of civilians a fundamental concern. In this regard, the Secretary-General and I will continue to require our peacekeepers and our personal exemplary conduct and strict compliance with our zero-tolerance policy against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse,” he stated. In addition, cooperation among the Central African Government, the European Union, the UN and the World Bank, has led to the development of “national plan for recovery.” This plan will be presented and discussed at the donor conference in Brussels on 17 November, which, Mr. Eliasson would attend as the head of the UN delegation.“Together we must build […] a better future for the Central African people. The UN is here, at your side, in this noble and necessary mission,” concluded the UN deputy chief.

Ohio State focuses on pass defense during week off

OSU redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas (left) outruns defenders following a catch against Kent State on Sept. 13 at Ohio Stadium. Thomas led OSU in receiving with 77 yards on 2 catches with a touchdown in OSU’s 66-0 win.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIn its season-opening win against Toledo last week, the Cincinnati football team attempted 42 passes.Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he was worried the Bearcats could throw it 75 times when they face the Buckeyes, but then backtracked and decided his concern lies with a different statistic.“No, I’m worried they’d catch it 75 times,” Meyer said Wednesday. “It’s ‘cause they’re really good.”Meyer said pass defense is his main focus during OSU’s week off after a 66-0 win against Kent State last Saturday.Cincinnati redshirt-sophomore quarterback Gunner Kiel — who has just one game under his belt for the Bearcats — threw for 418 yards and six touchdowns in his team’s first game of the season. Meyer said Kiel and his teammates caught OSU’s attention during that game.“Pass defense is going to be the call to arms,” the third-year OSU coach said. “They’re really good, and they got a really good quarterback.”Meyer said he expected to see the Bearcats struggle — or at least have more mistakes — last week as Kiel made his debut, but added that didn’t happen. After watching that performance, Meyer said his Buckeyes don’t necessarily have an edge on Cincinnati, even though they have two more games under their belts.“Go watch the first half against Toledo and you’d say no,” he said. “You’d think there would be more first-game mistakes with a new quarterback but … they were outstanding.”Despite the concern surrounding his team’s ability to defend against the Cincinnati passing attack, redshirt-sophomore safety Tyvis Powell said he is looking forward to making a statement, especially when it comes to pass defense.“I’m not shying away from it, I’m actually kind of excited about it,” Powell said. “Like I said, I’m ready to show the world that the pass defense has improved.”So far this season, the Buckeyes have given up just 298 yards through the air, or 99.3 yards per game on average. But that includes a matchup with the Navy Midshipmen — who only threw four passes — and the demolition of an overmatched Kent State team.The only real test for the OSU pass defense so far in 2014 has come against Virginia Tech, and even the Hokies don’t tend to put up the same numbers Cincinnati did through the air last week.While redshirt-freshman linebacker Darron Lee said this wasn’t quite finals week for the OSU pass defense, he compared it to something like an important midterm exam.“I wouldn’t say a final exam because you’ve still got the rest of the season to go,” Lee said on Wednesday. “But I’d say it’s the first big test.”Lee said the team is preparing with Kiel and the Bearcats’ passing attack in mind, and added he hopes to show the development the defense has undergone this season.“I think what people are going to see is our pass defense has come full circle,” he said. “We’re preparing for that and we’ll be ready.”Powell said matchups like the one OSU is set to have against the Bearcats are what defensive backs like him “live for.”“It’s like a huge game of seven-on-seven but with a pass rush,” he said.After seeing what Cincinnati was able to do against Toledo, Powell said OSU is working to be ready and waiting when Kiel and the Bearcats arrive in Columbus. He said the Buckeyes expect Cincinnati to come in throwing, especially since OSU has struggled in pass defense in recent seasons.“We know that they know that, so we know that they’re going to come trying to sling the rock on us, so that’s why all week we’ve been focusing on pass defense,” Powell said. “Putting in new coverages and stuff like that.”While Powell said he can’t disclose exactly what those changes to the pass defense will be, he said they are coming in preparation for what could be the best passing attack the Buckeyes face all season.“For the secondary, this is big,” Powell said. “Because this is like the best quarterback with the best wide receiver core group we’re going to see all season. So this is the best time to show the fans that the pass defense has improved.”The Buckeyes’ matchup with Cincinnati is scheduled for Sept. 27 at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. The Bearcats are scheduled to have one more game — against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday — before making the trip to Columbus. read more

After his spread in German Playboy Danny HealyRae set for German TV

first_imgA GERMAN TELEVISION crew are currently spending four days in south Kerry interviewing locals and councillor Danny Healy-Rae about rural isolation.Danny, the son of former TD Jackie and brother of current Independent TD Michael, is no stranger to the German media spotlight.He told that this is the fourth German media crew to visit him in his Kerry constituency.German Playboy“There was a magazine crowd from Hamburg, another TV crew came from Cologne, this German crew, they are also from Hamburg, and then there was German Playboy…”Danny explains that he was interviewed for the March edition of the lads magazine.“It was the one with Rosanna Davison in it. The one where she didn’t have much on… I was further on in the magazine from her. I have three of the issues in the boot of the car actually.”Drink drivingThe German television station Spiegel are “meeting with people living in small villages and small towns [in Kerry], where shops are closing and pubs are closing,” Michael Healy-Rae told “It highlights a problem that’s also in Germany too.”Michael believes that the show will be watched by around two million people in Germany and should be broadcast “either this Sunday or next Sunday. It’ll be in German but there will be subtitles”.The crew filmed a Kerry Council Constituency meeting yesterday evening and were in the Healy-Rae’s bar on Sunday.Danny said they never condoned drink driving. He wanted permits for people living in certain areas so they could “enjoy one or two in the pub. It would be a form of discretion by gardaí”.“A person going out playing a game of cards, having a drink or two and driving home never hurt anyone,” added Michael.Media ridiculeMichael believes that people in Ireland did not understand what they meant because the media “ridiculed” them.“It’s only smart alecks that think we are wrong,” said Michael.Danny said he was not worried about how he was representing Ireland internationally and stood by his idea that locals in rural Kerry should be allowed drink alcohol and drive.“When people [Germans] see the type of roads and the type of people they understand it exactly,” he said.He called on the the government and “the powers that be to give this consideration”.“People in rural Ireland are not getting fair play,” Danny said.Column: Healy-Rae’s drink-driving vote is insulting to people who’ve lost loved ones>Read: Here’s how the world reacted to the Kerry drink-driving story>last_img read more

Ötzi lhomme congelé du Néolithique avait des problèmes de dents

first_imgÖtzi, l’homme congelé du Néolithique, avait des problèmes de dentsDes chercheurs suisses ont étudié l’état bucco-dentaire d’Ötzi, cet homme préhistorique momifié par le froid et découvert dans un glacier voici plus de vingt ans. Ceci a permis de montrer l’ancienneté de certaines pathologies humaines…    Ötzi, cet homme du Néolithique mort il y a quelque 5.300 ans, conservé presque intact jusqu’à nos jours dans un glacier alpin où il fut retrouvé en 1991, vient de faire sa première visite chez le dentiste ! En l’occurrence, Roger Seiler, spécialisé en paléopathologie dentaire au Centre de médecine évolutionnaire de l’Université de Zurich. L’examen bucco-dentaire de la momie naturelle a été réalisé grâce à la reconstruction en 3D de tomographies (photos de coupes d’organes) et a révélé plusieurs problèmes sanitaires. D’après les travaux publiés dans la revue European Journal of Oral Sciences, cet homme souffrait de parodontite avancée – une inflammation du parodonte, le tissu de soutien des dents -, en particulier au niveau des molaires arrière. “La perte du parodonte a toujours été une maladie très fréquente, comme l’examen de crânes de l’âge de pierre et de momies égyptiennes l’a [déjà] montré. Ötzi nous offre un excellent aperçu d’un cas aussi ancien de cette maladie”, explique Roger Seiler. “Ötzi a souffert de lourdes abrasions dentaires et avait plusieurs lésions carieuses – parfois graves”, ajoute Frank Rühli, directeur de l’étude. Une denture qui a souffert Selon les auteurs, le régime alimentaire néolithique, à base de farine de céréales plus ou moins bien moulues, et l’absence probable d’hygiène dentaire expliquent cette usure des dents – la nourriture contenait vraisemblablement des déchets abrasifs – et ces caries – provoquées par les glucides.Mais ce n’est pas tout si l’on en croit les observations qui ont été faites. Une dent de devant a semble t-il subi un traumatisme mécanique probablement accidentel, entraînant une décoloration encore bien visible. Ajouté à cela, une molaire a perdu une cuspide (saillie), probablement en mâchant sur quelque chose de dur.
