By: Tim Booth, AP Sports WriterSEATTLE (AP) — The running joke is that when the Seattle Mariners arrive for the first day of spring training everyone will need to wear “Hi, my name is” nametags.It might not be a bad idea for manager Scott Servais to consider.“I’m very excited to go to spring training, to get with this group, and hit the reset button a little bit on our clubhouse and what we’ve got going,” Servais said.Seattle begins spring training in a full rebuild mode — although “step-back” or “reset” have been the favored terms inside the front office. Instead of being a club contending for a wild-card berth and likely hovering in the 85- to 90-win range, the Mariners embraced the need to get younger, to relieve themselves of some hefty contracts, and to provide financial flexibility for the time when their crop of prospects are regular contributors.Seattle should not be a terrible team. They aren’t tanking. But they begin spring with a roster they hope won’t be the same by midseason. In Seattle’s perfect scenario, the handful of established veterans in the lineup will play well enough early in the season that they can be moved for more prospects.The hope remains that the prospects they’ve acquired will be ready to contribute by the second half of the 2020 season, with some likely making their debuts this year. Much of spring training will involve seeing how a handful of them stack up already.“We have a chance to grow into something special and we’re gonna watch that happen. While we couldn’t tell you definitively we’re gonna win 100 games, I can tell you we’re gonna try to win every single one that we play,” general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “We’re not going out there with the intention to lose. I think that was one of the things that got lost in the weeds. So far back as two years ago when people started talking about rebuilding and restructuring and ripping it down. You don’t have to rip it down to put yourself in a better position.”Other things to watch as the Mariners start reporting next Monday, ahead of the early season opener in Japan on March 20 against Oakland:NEW LOOK: Gone are Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Jean Segura, Mike Zunino, Ben Gamel, Guillermo Heredia, and with them a lot of the offensive production from recent seasons. The Mariners’ offseason trades and roster decisions saw them bid farewell to the heart of their batting order in Segura, Cano and Cruz. Yet the drop-off shouldn’t be significant at the plate. Seattle added speed in outfielder Mallex Smith and shortstop J.P. Crawford. They got a potential big bat in outfielder Domingo Santana and likely improved offensively behind the plate with Omar Narvaez.One to watch in spring will be third baseman Kyle Seager. If he can rebound from a terrible 2018, Seattle will be similar offensively to what it was a year ago.THEY’RE SET: The rotation could be good enough to keep the Mariners competitive. Marco Gonzales, Mike Leake and newcomer Yusei Kikuchi will be the headliners, although Seattle will limit Kikuchi’s innings during spring and through the regular season. Wade LeBlanc will have a spot after a solid 2018, which begs a question about Felix Hernandez. The former All-Star had the worst season of his career in 2018 with a 5.55 ERA and 27 home runs allowed, but Seattle insists he’ll be in the rotation entering the final season of his current contract.THEY’RE NOT: The bullpen is the biggest question mark. There are no jobs predetermined outside of perhaps Hunter Strickland having the inside track on the closer spot. Seattle is likely to have a fairly regular shuffle between Triple-A and the majors this season to help keep arms in the bullpen, especially on days where Kikuchi makes his short starts and it essentially turns into a bullpen day.ROOKIES TO WATCH: Pitcher Justus Sheffield and Justin Dunn, infielders Shed Long and Evan White, and 18-year-old top prospect Julio Rodriguez all will get long looks during the spring. They will be key to Seattle’s hopes of remaining competitive over the next few years.ON DECK: Seattle’s spring training will be abbreviated. The Mariners will open in Tokyo with two games against Oakland. They will take an expanded roster to Japan that is expected to include 45-year-old Ichiro Suzuki. After returning to the U.S., the Mariners will need to trim three players from their roster before the home opener on March 28 against Boston.TweetPinShare0 Shares

HALIFAX – (NSElxn)Nova Scotia’s Liberals have released an election platform that includes a total of $1.08 billion in spending commitments and tax cuts over four years.The platform is based on last month’s budget that was tabled but not voted on in the legislature and contains a number of promises already announced on the campaign trail.One new initiative is a rent supplement expansion aimed at reducing the wait list for affordable housing by 30 per cent, and would top up the total amount spent on the program to nearly $30 million a year by the fourth year.There are also two significant shifts in health care that include allowing doctors to choose where and how they practice, and a signalling that a Liberal government is open to creating more long term care beds if needed, although no numbers or costs were included.(The Canadian Press)—(NSElxn-Tories-Candidate)An ejected Tory candidate in the Nova Scotia election is trading fresh barbs with the party’s leader — and says she is looking into continuing her bid for public office.Jad Crnogorac was dropped as the Tories’ Dartmouth South candidate over a Twitter joke she made about a date-rape drug known as “roofies,” and other social media postings.She complains the Tories have a double-standard because they stood by a male candidate who jokingly acted out what he called a “Chinese fire drill” in an online video.But Tory Leader Jamie Baillie maintains the latest case differs from one involving Matt Whitman, who Baillie says apologized and had no intent to hurt anyone.(The Canadian Press)—(Tories-Drugs)Nova Scotia’s Progressive Conservatives are promising to foot the bill for cancer medications taken at home.Tory Leader Jamie Baillie says Nova Scotians in cancer treatment shouldn’t have to worry about how they will pay for it.He says a Progressive Conservative government would invest $1.8 million a year to extend cancer drug coverage.Baillie says a growing number of cancers can now be treated using oral medications outside a hospital.(The Canadian Press)—(NDP-Patients)Nova Scotia’s New Democrats say they wouldn’t build an outpatient centre in Halifax’s Bayers Lake business park.Instead, NDP Leader Gary Burrill says he will work with patients, health care providers and the city to find the best location.He says the lack of public transit to Bayers Lake would put seniors and others who rely on public transit at a disadvantage.Burrill says the new site would put the needs of patients first.(The Canadian Press)—(N.S.

OTTAWA – Tony Clement was a charter member of the new National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians, which has access to highly classified information. A look at the committee:What is it?The committee, created by statute last year, is a multi-party forum that includes representatives from both the House of Commons and the Senate. But it is no ordinary committee. It meets in secret and reports to the prime minister on national security issues.What exactly does it do?The committee has authority to review national-security and intelligence activities carried out across the government.This includes activities of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the cyberspies of the Communications Security Establishment, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canada Border Services Agency, among many others.Similar committees have existed for years in the United States and Britain, prompting the Liberal government to establish one here to improve oversight and accountability of the intelligence world.The committee submits reports, including an annual review, to the prime minister. Redacted versions of reports are tabled in Parliament.Who serves on the committee?MP David McGuinty (chairman), Sen. Percy Downe, Sen. Frances Lankin, Sen. Vern White, MP Emmanuel Dubourg, MP Hedy Fry, MP Gudie Hutchings, MP Murray Rankin, MP Brenda Shanahan.Are they sworn to secrecy?All members hold Top Secret security clearances and are permanently bound to secrecy under the Security of Information Act. Members swear an oath or solemn affirmation indicating they will obey and uphold the laws of Canada, and will not communicate or inappropriately use information obtained in confidence during their committee work.What were members told about security?Shortly after being appointed to the committee, all members were given a comprehensive security briefing by the Privy Council Office and other security agencies. “In fact, we regularly review our security obligations given how important this is to our credibility,” says Rennie Marcoux, executive director of the committee secretariat.What has the committee been doing?In May, the committee provided a special report to the prime minister on security concerns surrounding his February 2018 trip to India. Members then held further deliberations on the report and provided an updated version to Trudeau last month.The committee is also conducting two other reviews, one examining how the government establishes national intelligence priorities and another looking at the intelligence activities of the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces.
4 December 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today expressed deep concern over the continuing standoff in Côte d’Ivoire, despite the “transparent and credible” outcome of the presidential run-off polls announced by the country’s electoral commission on Wednesday and certified by the United Nations envoy. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today expressed deep concern over the continuing stand-off in Côte d’Ivoire, despite the “transparent and credible” outcome of the presidential run-off polls announced by the country’s electoral commission on Wednesday and certified by the United Nations envoy.“The Secretary-General stresses that the outcome of the presidential election as certified by his Special Representative, has been recognized by the broad international community, demonstrating the firm resolve and commitment of the international community towards Côte d’Ivoire,” said a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.Mr. Ban reiterated his call for the Ivorian people to remain calm and patient and emphasized that the UN, including the United Nations Operation in Côte d”Ivoire (UNOCI), will do everything within its mandate to preserve peace and security in the country.Yesterday, Mr. voiced his support for the certification election results by his Special Representative in the country, Y. J. Choi, and congratulated the winning candidate, Alassane Ouattara, while urging him to work towards lasting peace.The certification followed the declaration of the results by Côte d’Ivoire’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), which announced Mr. Ouattara, a former prime minister in the country, as the winner of the elections in which he ran against incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo.Following the release of the results, the head of Côte d’Ivoire’s Constitutional Council declared the IEC announcement “null and void,” and proceeded to proclaim Mr. Gbagbo as the winner, after cancelling voting returns from four northern regions.In his certification of the election result today, Mr. Choi declared that: “Even if all the complaints made by the presidential camp to the Constitutional Council were taken into account in terms of numbers of tally sheets, and consequently the votes, the outcome of the second round of the presidential elections as proclaimed by the IEC President on 2 December would not change, with candidate Ouattara being the winner of the presidential election.”Cote

Back in October 2010, Microsoft announced Office 365, the company’s first cloud-based productivity software product and, some would say, a direct response to Google Apps. On Sunday, Microsoft announced that Office 365 would now be offered as a public beta to both small businesses and enterprises.The small business beta is open for companies with up to 25 employees who need a solution that doesn’t require an IT staff, but still offers essential email, calendar, and website services. There is also an enterprise version for any size organization looking for more features and control, Office Professional Plus, Active Directory, and high-end archiving. Once an account is activated, which may take 2-4 weeks as part of the beta, users will have 30 days (from activation) to decide whether they would like to purchase the service or not.Introductions to both the small business and enterprise offerings are below. Small business owners are billed month-to-month starting at $6/user while those enrolling in the enterprise program have four plans to choose from starting at $10/user/month for the E1 plan. Currently, only the E3 plan, which begins at $24/user/month, is available in the public beta. All four (E1-E4) are described below.In conjunction with the launch of Office 365 to the public, Microsoft is also offering what it is referring to as the Office 365 Marketplace. The marketplace includes a number of recommended partners that are able to help deploy an Office 365 solution as well as other services and featured applications that can work with the productivity suite. For all of these (websites, collaboration, messaging, etc.) Microsoft promises 99.9% uptime which may ease fears by some companies who require a high degree of uptime in support of their business.Read more at the Microsoft Office 365 Blog, Microsoft news release and the Office 365 website.Brian’s OpinionI have really been surprised how long Microsoft has taken to offer a cloud-based productivity suite. I based this on its dominance with its client-based Microsoft Office suite, but perhaps it’s that dominance that caused the delay. The executives at Microsoft have taken a “wait and see” attitude before beginning down the road of offering a cloud-based version of Office. Unfortunately, while taking that pause, Google went ahead and offered their own cloud-based apps and almost certainly grabbed some early customers who would have considered a similar Microsoft offering.Google had one great advantage which enabled it to launch Google Apps first: it didn’t have to worry about undermining an existing (and hugely profitable) product. Microsoft does have to worry about that. They could lose a considerable amount of revenue if there is a fast shift to the online offering for Office rather than the traditional client-based software. In return though, Microsoft does gain the holy grail of revenue for a software company: subscription revenue.Microsoft has for a long time been trying to move companies to a subscription model. Companies that currently sign up for a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement must commit to deploy a desktop-based product such as Windows 7, Microsoft Office or client access licenses to all business PC’s. Microsoft previously only offered perpetual licensing for this agreement which means if you terminate the agreement you are no longer entitled to upgrade rights, but you get to keep the software and any previous upgrades you received. Now, Microsoft EA customers have a new subscription option which entitles them to software and upgrade rights like the perpetual program, but the big caveat is if you walk away from the agreement you walk away with nothing which encourages companies to continue their subscription. Office 365 is clearly an extension of this subscription business model by Microsoft to guarantee revenue annually.

Des sondages contradictoires sur le nucléaireHier, deux sondages sur la sortie du nucléaire ont été publiés. Commandés par EDF et par Europe Écologie, ils donnent des résultats radicalement opposés.Alors que les autorités japonaises luttent toujours pour limiter les dégâts de l’accident nucléaire survenu à la centrale de Fukushima suite au séisme, les États s’interrogent sur la poursuite de leur programme nucléaire. En France, deux sondages ont été commandés l’un par EDF et l’autre par Europe Écologie, afin de connaitre l’opinion de la population. Publiées hier, les deux enquêtes révèlent des résultats totalement contradictoires.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéSelon le sondage TNS Sofres réalisé à la demande d’EDF, 55% des Français ne sont pas favorables à “la demande des écologistes d’abandonner la production d’électricité nucléaire en France” contre 44% favorables. Au contraire, les résultats obtenus par l’Ifop et commandés par Europe Écologie indiquent que 70% des Français sont pour une sortie du nucléaire, avec 51% pour un arrêt progressif à 25 ou 30 ans et 19% pour une sortie immédiate. Et seulement 30% souhaitent que la France “poursuive son programme nucléaire et construise de nouvelles centrales”.Interrogée hier sur France Inter, Cécile Duflot, secrétaire nationale d’Europe Écologie Les Verts (EELV) a jugé “un peu trop gros” le sondage EDF au lendemain des élections cantonales où les écologistes ont obtenu un bon score. Elle a également tenu à indiquer que leur sondage réalisé entre le 15 et le 17 mars sur 1.008 personnes, n’était pas censé être rendu public. “C’est un sondage qu’on fait de façon épisodique pour évaluer quelle est la perception des Français sur ce sujet sur lequel on a été politiquement et pendant longtemps extrêmement isolés” a t-elle expliqué à l’antenne. Aujourd’hui, EELV plaide pour un référendum national sur une sortie du nucléaire dans les 30 prochaines années. “Sortir du nucléaire de manière intelligente et concertée, c’est possible” estime Cécile Duflot.Le 22 mars 2011 à 11:05 • Emmanuel Perrin
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is full of praise for midfielder James Milner as he is set to make his 500th Premier League appearance against Bournemouth on Saturday.Milner will reach the milestone when he lines up against Bournemouth on Saturday, and Klopp was proud of the feat and has praised his vice-captain.“He started early! That makes it possible to have 500,” Klopp told the club’s website.“He’s a fantastic professional – that gives you the opportunity as well. A few players had the same length of career but were not always available. Millie deserves that number.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It’s typical of him that he sets another standard for a lot of other players. He’s so important. He’s a role model in the dressing room, a proper English professional in the best understanding.“He helps me a lot, of course, with his attitude. He is really smart. It’s nice to have him around. He played different positions for us and always did well, even if he didn’t like it. He’s a fantastic player.”

Momentum is immensely important in sports, more so, in T20 cricket, where the team on a roll tends to win matches in a spree. Royal Challengers Bangalore, who finally got off the mark in this year’s season, would want this momentum to carry them forward. They take on the Mumbai Indians, a side which lost their previous encounter against Rajasthan Royals, and in Wankhede where the surface generally evens out the contest, this match promises to be a real humdinger.Predicted XI for both sides: Rohit SharmaIANSMumbai Indians Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit BumrahRoyal Challengers Bangalore Predicted XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Shivam Dube, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed SirajFantasy tips and suggestions: File photo of Royal Challengers Bangalore playersSAJJAD HUSSAIN/AFP/Getty ImagesWicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock, after a series of starts, finally got going in the match against Rajasthan Royals and should be the first pick in the side as he will now fancy a string of big scores under his belt, before jetting off to South Africa for World Cup preparations. Batsmen: Rohit Sharma looked a million dollar in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore and might enjoy the RCB bowling attack on a flat Wankhede surface. Also, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have found their groove and if RCB have to dominate in the remainder of games, both these batsmen have to keep churning out runs. Suryakumar Yadav can be the fourth pick as the batsman in this side as he has looked in good form this season and a big score could well be around the corner.All-rounders: Hardik Pandya and Marcus Stoinis – While Hardik has been in fine six-hitting form for Mumbai Indians this season, Stoinis has been a mixed-bag. Both these players have to be more consistent with the ball for their sides to motor on in this tournament.Spinners: Mumbai Indians spinners have not been very good this year. While Rahul Chahar has looked in patches,he has not been able to pick enough wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal, on the other hand, has been the most consistent player for RCB over the years and this season has not been any different. He should be in the side as the lone spinner.Seam bowlers: Jason Behrendorff was taken to the cleaners by Chris Gayle in the previous game, but with the new ball, he has the tendency to pick up wickets up front. He should be accompanied by Jasprit Bumrah, who has been brilliant once again. From the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Umesh Yadav should be picked as he has a good record against the Mumbai Indians.
