YouTubeWeek 6 of the college football season provided one of the season’s best games. Then-No. 19 Texas held a three-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter against then-No. 7 Oklahoma when Kyler Murray took over and tied the game at 45. Texas fought back, though and walked out with a 48-45 win.Following the Week 6 slate of games, ESPN updated its Football Power Index – a computer model that measures overall team strength. Alabama remains a heavy favorite in every poll and metric after finally finding an elite quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa.While updating its FPI, ESPN’s computer model also projects win/loss, percentage chance to win a team’s respective conference, and strength of schedule.According to ESPN’s FPI, here are the 10 hardest schedules for the rest of the season.RutgersBaylorWVUOklahoma StateFlorida StateKansasPittIndianaGeorgiaOregon StateYou can see the full results here.West Virginia is the Big 12’s best hope to make the College Football Playoff, statistically, though the road doesn’t get any easier from here.

(Photo by Tim Bradbury/Getty Images)Week 8 of the college football season is in the books and it delivered one of the biggest upsets so far this season. Unranked Purdue spanked Ohio State 49-20 to hand the Buckeyes their first loss of the year.Despite the loss, Ohio State still has a shot at the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes can win out, win the Big Ten, and hope a Big Ten conference title is enough to make the playoff this year – though it wasn’t quite enough in 2017.ESPN named the 15 teams still eligible to make the playoff – Ohio State among them. Interestingly, there was also a two-loss team among those in the list.ESPN’s “Eliminator” thinks Texas A&M still has a chance to make the playoff.What if the Aggies win out, LSU beats Alabama, then A&M beats the Tigers and finds a way into the SEC title game, in which they beat a one-loss Georgia or Florida? Even that might not earn a spot. But it could, which is reason enough to keep the Aggies alive with their losses to the two best teams nationally.A two-loss team in the playoff?This conversation will resolve itself over the course of the final weeks of the season, though it’s fun to predict which teams will vie for a title come January.[ESPN]
CALGARY (660 NEWS) — Some Calgary small business owners are still left in shock after hearing about the tax increases coming with the four-year budget plan released by city council Tuesday.The frustration has even reached social media with many users calling for Mayor Naheed Nenshi to step down because of the budget.Stephen Deere is the owner of Modern Steak in Kensington who didn’t go so far as to say the mayor should resign but believes a change in council is necessary.“We need some form of new blood. I think Nenshi is very much a sound bite, social media person, he puts out his two things, and people either love him or hate him for it. I think we need to go deeper beyond the soundbite and actually look at making a big picture, long-term decisions that are going to drive prosperity for all people in Calgary instead of just going back to taxation.”Deere said there is too much uncertainty regarding the tax increases and that it’s getting more difficult to operate his business as a result of the taxes, the recent recession on the price of oil.The Canadian Federation of Independent Business also chimed in on the budget saying the City’s spending is a big issue that needs to be addressed instead of continuous taxation.“I think what this requires is some remedial, going through the budget and finding those areas of saving because in the past we’ve suggested things that could be looked at and council doesn’t even consider those little things or the big things,” said Alberta Director Amber Ruddy who pointed out that a recent survey found that about 53 per cent of businesses are considering leaving Calgary as a result of the high level of property taxes.The move to change spending habits in council is being echoed by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation with Alberta director Franco Terrazzano suggesting that the city eliminate their golden benefits.“That means the retirement bonuses that city employees. There’s over 200 City of Calgary employees that are set to receive three pensions from the City. Calgary is the only major city that gives two pensions to its mayor. Between 2007 and 2016 Calgary city council pensions cost taxpayers more than Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver combined.”Terrazzano doesn’t believe that a sudden change needs to happen as that outcome is ultimately up to voters in an election.

Rolling out a new technology is just as much about “buy in” as it is about productivity and cost savings, and these days fewer and fewer employees are holding out on getting rid of fax-based processes. Especially as Millennials — most of whom have never sent a fax — become the majority in the workplace, there’s little reason not to phase out the last fax machines if you haven’t already.Don’t fax over VoIP or SIP. I know somebody is going to leave a comment on this post that faxing over VoIP or SIP trunks isn’t a problem. However, I’ve seen too many failed instances firsthand, as well as among peers and clients, to consider faxing over IP circuits as reliable. Regardless of which faxing protocol you use, do yourself a favor and don’t fax over IP circuits unless you have no other option.Know your options. You don’t have 31 flavors like Baskin-Robbins, but there are multiple options to consider in this transition. Use a fax server — You can keep the fax machines, but limit circuits (POTS or PRIs) to reduce costs. This will satisfy the need to support secure and reliable data transmissions while reducing monthly recurring costs.Use an eFax service — When so much of our world is digital, this solution lets you keep digital storage yet transmit to those who still use the old fax machines. You can receive faxes via email, and send faxes either the same way, through a Web page, or by using the fax function on your printer to send a printed document as a fax.Similar to above, you can fax over HTTPS and keep the fax machines in play — This isn’t ideal, but one option until you can keep progressing to remove the fax machines completely.Go cold turkey… or just throw away the fax machines — This is the most drastic, but when you have a pulse on your company culture, and you know that getting rid of your fax machines won’t inhibit productivity, then do it! Of course, Murphy’s law will inevitably come into play here as soon as you trash the last fax machine and cancel the lines, so consider fax over IP for a transition period.

How many other technologies can you think of that have survived as long? Use of fax technology peaked in 1997, and I’m willing to bet that anybody still relying on or having to support faxes today is ready for them to go away. The technology has been excellent in serving its purpose, but most of us want to migrate 100% to IP now. Why do we still have these machines? The reason, in short: Many doctor offices, law firms, and government agencies still require faxes to ensure authenticity and security of information transferred and received. How to Choose?

OTTAWA — Canadian retail sales during the crucial holiday shopping season were far lower than previously projected as consumers appeared to pull back on spending.Statistics Canada has released revised estimates for its retail-trade figures — and they are considerably weaker when compared to the initial readings published by the federal agency.The agency now estimates retail sales for November contracted 1.1 per cent compared to the previous month, which is a downward revision from its previous figure of 0.5 per cent growth.For December, the agency now says retail trade likely fell 1.2 per cent, which is deeper than its previous estimate of just a 0.7 per cent contraction.The report says retail sales grew by only 0.1 per cent in January, compared to the initial estimate of a 0.3 per cent expansion.Statistics Canada also released its monthly number for February, when it estimates retail sales increased 0.4 per cent to $49.8 billion — with the biggest increases coming from new car dealers and general merchandise stores.
The Inter-Agency Transitional Workplan for the North Caucasus, which involves nine UN agencies and 13 NGOs, has targeted recovery-oriented, humanitarian and development assistance in war-torn Chechnya and its neighbouring republics and donor support for the programmes so far this year has reached almost $35 million, although the agencies say almost $82 million is needed.The report notes “significant progress” toward the goals of the Transitional Workplan to enhance protection of civilians, provide essential humanitarian relief, and encourage and assist recovery.“While serious concerns about violence and insecurity remain, the security situation allows for more access and project activity than a few years ago,” it said, but added that “fighting, human rights abuses, and abductions still occur regularly in Chechnya, Dagestan, and Ingushetia particularly.”On the positive side, the report noted that there has been a “noticeable increase this year in rebuilding in Chechnya,” particularly in the capital Grozny, although the authorities there now realize how long and complex a process rebuilding will be and that more government resources need to be provided.The report welcomes “donors’ demonstrated commitment” to meeting the basic humanitarian needs in the North Caucasus but reiterates that “full funding is still the goal, and there is reason for concern about wide funding disparities among agencies.” Yesterday for example, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) warned it would have to halt its operation in Chechnya in three months unless fresh pledges are made soon.Looking ahead, the report said that one of the most “crucial” events for the humanitarian efforts in the region would be the opening of an official UN presence in the war-ravaged republic, although much will depend on the security situation.“As mentioned in this Update, an initial, low-profile deployment to Chechnya is prepared and will go ahead as soon as the security regime allows it. Eventually, whether in 2006 or2007, opening of an office will be a signal event and certainly will entail a review of cost plans for setting up, staffing, and securing the office.”
President David Granger has assured that Guyana will have a fully functional Department of Energy by the end of August.File: From Right- President David Granger, Acting Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge, Sir Shridath Ramphal, Caribbean Statesman and Advisor and Raphael Trotman, Minister of Natural Resources at an oil and gas forum held earlier this year.“I am very confident that by the end of August or thereabouts the Guyanese people will see a Department of Energy with which they are satisfied,” he told the media on the sidelines of the 39th Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM in Montego Bay Jamaica, the Department of Public Information (DPI) reported.Additionally, the president said, “I am setting up a Department of Energy and when that is done I think we will be on sound footing. Right now, I am not happy what we have put in place over the last three years the administrative infrastructure that is needed, but we are rectifying that.”It is believed that the establishment of the department will be a boost to ongoing preparations for the country becoming an oil producer in 2020.In March of 2018, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon announced that a Department of Energy within the Ministry of Presidency would be established, which will assume the responsibility of the oil and gas sector from the Natural Resources Ministry.Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, earlier in the year, said he had proposed the idea to have a Department of Energy due to the expansion of the industry in Guyana. “This department will be the only one which will be focused on the development of the petroleum sector.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against several senior officers of public-listed and state-owned Syndicate Bank, and other individuals, for causing an alleged loss of Rs 1,000 crore, according to various media reports. The Business Line reported that a case of alleged loan fraud was registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the IPC after their names were made public in an FIR. The fraud took place primarily at the bank’s Udaipur and Jaipur (Malviya Nagar and MI road) branches spanning over a period of five years (2011 to 2016).Officials at both these branches colluded with outside persons/customers by opening around 386 accounts, escaping all audits and formalities related to the KYC norms, reported the Indian Express.They resorted to discounting fake cheques and bills against fake letters of credit (LC), and arranging overdrafts against non-existent LIC policies, according to the Business Line report. The amount involved individual transactions ranging from Rs 40 lakh to Rs five crore. The Indian Express report quoted a CBI spokesperson as saying: “Prima facie, the ambit of alleged fraud seemed to be domestic. It added that most transaction to avoid detection, were nullified from the proceeds of new fraudulent transactions.”Explaining the modus operandi, the newspaper explained, these people allegedly deposited fake cheques and got discounted cash on them (e.g. for the face value of Rs 100 cheque, they got Rs 90 cash immediately). And before the cheque bounced, they produced another of higher face value and again got a discounted encashment, with a portion of it being used to write off against the previous fake cheque. Searches were carried out at 10 locations spread across two cities, and also Delhi-NCR, both on residences and official premises of the bank officials and the some businessmen.
Kolkata: A six-year-old girl student was allegedly molested by a male teacher at a school in south Kolkata which triggered protests by angry parents in front of the institution, police said. Ananya Chakrabarty, Chairperson of the West Bengal Child Rights Commission, said that the student had been molested by the male teacher. The accused teacher was taken to a police station and investigation was on, police said. The police had a tough time to control the protestors who tried to enter the school. Brickbats were hurled at the police personnel in which some of them were injured, the sources said. The police had to wield batons to disperse the demonstrators. Deputy Commissioner of Police(South East division) Kalyan Mukherjee said, “The teacher was taken to the police station. Investigation is on”. The school authorities were not available for immediate comments.

He insisted he is a prosperous businessman in Nigeria and he flew to Bujumbura, Burundi via Nairobi, Kenya on October 18 to visit a friend.“I don’t know who put the drug in my bag. I don’t know whether it’s in my hotel room in Bujumbura that they did this thing to me. In my life, I’ve never pushed drugs before. I don’t know anything about drugs,” said Ikechukwu.“I’m a businessman. I have my own shop in Nigeria and I’m doing well. I went to Bujumbura to visit my friend and from there; I came back to Cameroon to see one of my friends, that’s all. And now I find myself in all this mess. It’s a setup,” he argued. Top Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Associated PressDOUALA, Cameroon (AP) – The arrest of a Nigerian allegedly smuggling heroin here highlights what officials say is a growing problem of drug trafficking in Central Africa.Egboka Ikechukwu, 28, appeared in court in Douala, Cameroon’s economic hub, Thursday to respond to charges of cross-border drug trafficking.Ikechukwu was arrested Tuesday night by police at Douala International Airport shortly after arriving on a Kenya Airways flight. He has been formally charged with the possession of 7 kilograms (15 pounds) of heroin. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Despite his denials, Ikechukwu is one of a growing number of suspected drug traffickers here, according to the state prosecutor and customs and police departments. The arrest is the latest in a steadily swelling series in recent months which show that Cameroon and Central Africa are fast becoming a transit zone and marketplace for South America’s drug cartels, according to Biloa.There has been a dramatic increase in seizures of cocaine and heroin amounting to hundreds of kilograms, according to data from border police and customs departments at air and sea ports in the sub-region. That is a significant increase from a few grams a couple of years ago.The neighboring region of West Africa has already become established as a transit point to Europe for South American traffickers, according to a report issued in July by regional Interpol officials. According to them the bulging seizures confirm that Central Africa is not only fast becoming a South American drug passageway, but also a consumption base.“A few decades ago, it was zero,” Lawrence Tang Enow, Senior Police Superintendent and Interpol Regional Training Officer in Cameroon told AP. “After some time, we started seizing a few grams. Now we got to a situation where last year we seized 140 kilograms (308 pounds) at the Douala International Airport alone.” Separate Interpol country reports based on police and customs statistics show increased seizures of Europe-bound cocaine and heroin and rising numbers of arrests of peddlers. The South American cartels and their local accomplices turning Central Africa into a stepping stone along their “cocaine route” to Europe by exploiting local weaknesses such as deficient controls at ports, poor traveler inspection equipment, porous land and sea borders and endemic corruption overwhelming security and customs departments, according to Interpol.In February, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC, estimated that cocaine smuggling in West and Central Africa currently generates some $900 million annually, up from $800 million in 2009.Particularly worrying is the suspected involvement of Al Qaidi in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and Nigeria’s Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, who may be involved in trafficking to fund their activities, according to a report published last year by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.“When the drug dealers come in, they influence the politics of countries, criminal activities and corruption. It is a very serious problem,” said Conrad Atefor Ntsefor, official at the Interpol Central Africa Regional Bureau in the Cameroonian capital, Yaoundé. (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) According to him, the wealthy and powerful cartels, whose bank accounts sometimes dwarf the state budgets in some African countries, can easily buy off government officials.UNODC has warned that Central Africa also risks increased in piracy off its coasts, illegal arms circulation, human trafficking and general instability.“The fear is that if we don’t act and act in time, this phenomenon will become a serious cankerworm,” Atefor warned.The Central Africa Regional Interpol Bureau has been working with various country police and customs departments to merge and coordinate intervention strategies, reinforce databases on the movements and activities of suspects and encourage prompt information sharing to facilitate the tracking down of traffickers.Officials say the work is paying off gradually. “We try to share information, intelligence and better coordinate through our secure communications system. I must admit here that that is what has been the driving force for the arrests of drug traffickers,” Atefor added.The regional efforts add to periodic crackdowns being jointly organized across West and Central Africa and Latin America by the World Customs Organization, UNODC and Interpol. Between November and December 2011, one operation, staged across 25 airports in West-Central Africa and Brazil, resulted in the arrests of some 50 suspects, the seizure of over 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of cocaine, heroin, amphetamines, guns, counterfeit medicines, ivory and over $3.2 million in cash.
