HLPFI reported on December 2 that a major breakthrough had been reached between Cargolux and two of the unions representing its crews – OGBL and LCGB – possibly ending a 15-month-long dispute that had appeared to be headed toward a strike.Cargolux explained that LCGB had “declared unexpectedly” to all involved in a meeting on December 9 that they considered the negotiations to have failed since “management was not prepared to accept their demands”.Accordingly, Cargolux suggested that LCGB and its members are “seemingly unable to accept responsibility for job security and growth in Luxembourg and to accept the necessity of inevitable change”.The airline added that it “cannot help but wonder” about the reliability and credibility of a social partner that agrees on certain compromises, only to negate its own decision days later.In light of LCGB’s refusal to continue negotiations, Cargolux confirmed that its management, along with CLSC (Confédération Luxembourgeoise des Syndicats Chrétiens) and OGBL, will secure the significant achievements negotiated during the past 15 months and confirm the parties’ intention to sign a new CWA this week.According to Cargolux, before this latest meeting, the parties had reached a principle agreement on the main terms and the final wording hinged solely on items relating to pilots. It says that it had already agreed with OGBL, CLSC and LCGB on all points concerning Cargolux ground staff.With regards to pilot matters, Cargolux claims that LCGB has since repeatedly raised new claims and “showed little if any willingness to compromise” on items concerning its flying members and representatives.In the latest meeting, Cargolux explained that LCGB was invited to produce a list of all its demands for the management’s consideration, but refused to do so.The all-cargo carrier says that it regrets that LCGB has terminated the negotiations at this late stage when an agreement was within reach.Cargolux stated that LCGB “seemingly does not care” about the negative implications of its decision on the airline’s employees – of which, Cargolux says, pilots are in minority – together with the impact on the economic interests of Luxembourg.However, said the freighter airline, clearly OGBL and CLSC do care, and it is for this reason that Cargolux, OGBL and CLSC are ready to seal a new CWA based on the terms agreed during many months of negotiations. www.cargolux.com
Share Sealy repeats as Defender of the Week Ramon Sealy was named Defender of the Week for the third time of his career after strong play against South Region opponents (Photo by Bill Stockland) BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – West Florida keeper Ramon Sealy (Bodden Town, Cayman Islands/John Gray HS) was named the Gulf South Conference Defender of the Week for the second week in a row after holding Rollins to one goal in 45 minutes of play on Sept. 7 and holding Florida Southern to one goal in 90 minutes on Sept. 9. Rollins was ranked No. 17 in the latest NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division II Men’s Rankings.Sealy recorded one save against Rollins and one save against Florida Southern to give him eight saves on the season. The Moccasins’ goal came on an own goal when Florida Southern took a free kick from midfield, and the ball deflected off an Argo and into the back of the net. The Argo earned the award last week after holding No. 25 Saint Leo to one goal and recording six saves on Sept. 1. This is the third time that Sealy has been earned the honor in his career at UWF. The first time came on Oct. 5, 2011, when he shut out then-ranked No. 24 Saint Leo. In addition, he was named to the All-GSC First Team in 2011 after being ranked second in goals against average in the conference (.55). The Argos will play Union (Tenn.) on Sept. 14 at 5 p.m. on the road.For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS# Print Friendly Version

The 24-year-old has shown glimpses of his talent, but has just one goal to his name in eight Premier League matches, a penalty in a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.And the former Lille attacker gave a candid interview when discussing his start to life at Arsenal.“[My start] It’s not been easy, we must tell the truth,” Pepe told RMC.

I am not very worried. People may be worried about statistics, but I’m not.“I have to keep working because the level is different, so is the language. It’s a new championship for me.

When you are around Casey Deakins, SCC’s institutional development assistant, you can’t help but be inspired and smile as she talks about overcoming the obstacles she’s faced in life.Deakins was born with Apert Syndrome.“I could be oh woe is me, Scarlett O’Hara over here, but I choose to be positive,” said Deakins. “I love what I do, and I take things as they come.”Apert Syndrome is a condition that involves abnormal growth of the skull and face that is caused by premature fusion of certain sutures of the skull.Other anomalies of the syndrome include webbed fingers and toes, as well as wide-set, bulging eyes that are tilted down at the side. Underdevelopment of the jaw usually causes problems with teeth alignment, and some are born with a cleft palate.Apert Syndrome occurs in one out of every 160,000 to 200,000 births.When Deakins realized she needed a modified staple remover, she asked Anna Walls, SCC’s occupational therapy assistant (OTA) program coordinator, for assistance.Walls agreed and asked what else Deakins had difficulty doing.The OTA students worked together to adapt a staple remover to maximize Deakins’ strength, putting her in the best ergonomic position.The class then addressed other activities of daily living that Casey identified as difficult, including: answering the phone, cutting with scissors, drinking from a cup with one hand, and using a knife to cut vegetables.Students worked with Casey on a trial run of various techniques and adaptive devices to increase her independence with the activities she had identified as difficult.Once appropriate equipment was determined, Walls not only told her where to find the items – but that the OTA student club had paid for the order – telling Deakins Santa had come a little early this year.“We were so happy to be able to work with Casey. She is such an inspiration to all of us,” said Walls. “Occupational therapy is about engaging people in the activities of life that are meaningful to them. Sometimes we focus on adapting the task by analyzing the skills a person has to use so that they can be independent.”“We all have really enjoyed working with Casey. She has such a positive outlook and is so sweet,” said OTA student Krystan Inman.Deakins had one more request of the OTA students and faculty, and that was to eat as much pizza as they could at the surprise party she gave them as a thank you for all they had done.“It has been fantastic working with the students,” said Deakins. “A simple question I had turned into so much more.”

Winding up her deposition before a special court in Bangalore, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Wednesday maintained the disproportionate asset case against her was “politically motivated” and “fabricated” at the instance of her rival DMK.Appearing for the fourth time since last month before special judge BM Mallikarjunaiah in the 15-year-old case, she completed answering 1,339 questions framed by the judge, who recorded her statement in the closed door hearing held at the high-security makeshift court hall at Parapana Agrahara on the city outskirts.Jayalalithaa, who had replied to 580 questions on Tuesday, fielded the remaining 192, special public prosecutor B V Acharya told reporters after the more than three-hour-long proceedings.”With today’s deposition she has answered all the 1,339 questions which were framed by the court under section 313 of CrPC (relating to recording of statement),” he said.The AIADMK supremo had appeared before the court on October 20 and 21 when she replied to about 571 questions.She deposed in the court on Tuesday for the third time after Supreme Court rejected her plea for exemption from personal appearance and seeking permission to submit written answers.Apparently relieved at the completion of the deposition, Jayalalithaa who emerged out of the court greeted the onlookers with folded hands and sporting a smile as she drove to the airport en route to Chennai.During Wednesday’s proceedings, Jayalalithaa also filed “a very detailed” statement along with several documents in addition to her deposition, he said adding in her statement she had asserted the case was fabricated at the instance of DMK which was in power in 1997. “Therefore it is a politically motivated case.”advertisementAcharya said the court adjourned the next hearing in the case to November 29 when it will record the statements of the other three accused including Jayalalithaa’s close aide Sasikala, at the regular special court in the city.In her statement, Jayalalithaa also said the case was taken up and an inquiry ordered under the CrPC on the basis of a ‘false’ complaint by Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy.She also stated that the search warrant was only taken in respect of her 31/3 Poes Garden residence and not the adjacent house. Therefore, the search (in the other house) was illegal.On seizure of costly sarees and matching accessories like footwear and watches during the raids, she said as a famous actress she had acted in about 120 films in various languages, where she was required to wear them with matching accessories.”Because a saree once used in a film will not be used again, she had kept all these as a momento and police is wrong in valuing all these sarees and footwear,” Acharya quoted Jayalalithaa as telling the court in the written statement.She termed the investigations by police officials as ‘illegal’ and said permission was granted only to probe the complaint filed by Swamy.She said searches of all her properties in Hyderabad was illegal as the court has no right to issue a search warrant for properties outside Chennai.Jayalalithaa alleged that the case has been instituted by her political opponents to defame her and tarnish her image in the eyes of the public.She, however, admitted that music director AR Rahman attended the marriage of her estranged foster son Sudhakaran in 1996 and also performed at the instance of the bride’s family. “We have not received any payment for it.”She said Rehman produced some silver articles given to him by the bride’s family while inviting him for the marriage.Jayalalithaa denied the statement by an IAS officer that she had used government officials for her private purpose.She also stated that during the check period, she had no other property except the Poes Garden property.She said that during investigation, the then law minister Madhavan and DMK leader Arcot Veerasamy interfered in the process, which she termed illegal.Jayalalithaa’s senior counsel B Kumar, said she answered all the remaining questions “correctly and to the point.”He said she has also filed a written statement detailing her grievances and that her examination under Sec 313 CrPC has been completed.Kumar said the questions pertained to investigation by police and documents acquired by them during the raids.Kumar said the “whole case is false and engineered by her opponents and is totally mala fide.”

KU got out ahead of OSU’s secondary when the ball bounced off one of its receivers and landed in Jordan Sterns’ arms. Sterns ran it back a while before a lateral to Vincent Taylor. Taylor then pitched it to Jarrell Owens.I have no idea how OSU didn’t fumble. But Glenn Spencer is not pleased despite the TO.Glenn Spencer is disgusted. https://t.co/Onjf6Rr22O— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 22, 2016Also, Carson nailed it.Vincent Taylor has a better option pitch than Tommie Frazier!
