Messi backs Modric, Ronaldo opts for Varane in The Best voting

first_imgBarcelona star Lionel Messi recognised Luka Modric as 2018’s best player in the voting for FIFA’s The Best awards, the federation has confirmed.The pair have been rivals for years in La Liga, and also clashed in this year’s World Cup when Argentina and Croatia faced off in Group D. Modric came off the better in that encounter, inspiring a crushing 3-0 victory for Croatia that included a stunning long-range effort from the Real Madrid midfielder.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! But Messi showed there were no hard feelings as he picked the World Cup finalist and The Best winner as his top player of 2018. Kylian Mbappe, another player who made Messi and Argentina suffer in Russia, was Messi’s second choice, with Cristiano Ronaldo taking third. Curiously, the Argentine overlooked his Barca team-mates in the top three, while Ronaldo picked two former companions from Real Madrid. Raphael Varane was Ronaldo’s top pick, followed by Modric and Atletico Madrid sharpshooter Antoine Griezmann. Varane also received the backing of Modric, who mirrored Cristiano’s selections by placing him in second followed by Griezmann. Griezmann, who has attracted criticism in some quarters recently by placing himself alongside the likes of Messi and Ronaldo, did at least win the backing of one international captain: Uruguay skipper and Atletico team-mate Diego Godin. Among the coaches, interim Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni plumped for Messi, while Brazil’s Tite overlooked local hero Neymar in favour of Modric, Mohamed Salah and Ronaldo. There were even a couple of nominations for World Cup Golden Boot winner Harry Kane, who won the approval of Bahamas coach Dion Godet and Chinese Taipei’s Gary White, though Kane himself voted for Ronaldo first, Messi second and Premier League rival Kevin De Bruyne third.You can check all the votes from captains, coaches and media via the FIFA website.last_img read more

Harder to stomach Alberta premier says Trump attacks show need for pipeline

first_imgCALGARY – Alberta’s premier says the Trump administration’s recent attacks on Canadian trade show how necessary it is to go ahead with the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.Rachel Notley has taken aim at what she called reckless U.S. moves against Canada’s steel and aluminum industries.She told the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary that Canada needs to be strategic with its resources and not put all its eggs in one basket.Virtually all of Canada’s oil exports go to the United States and the Trans Mountain pipeline would enable sales to Asia via the West Coast.The federal government agreed last month to purchase the project from Texas-based Kinder Morgan, which had threatened to pull the plug because of political hurdles in British Columbia.Notley says the United States benefits from Canada’s failure to build a pipeline to a Canadian coast and get a better price for its product.“In these days, I’ve got to say it’s getting harder and harder to stomach, with reckless attacks on our steel and aluminum industries and reckless attacks on the hard-working people that those industries employ,” Notley said Tuesday.“I have a message to send to folks beyond this room, to British Columbia and to all Canadians: if the last days and weeks tell us anything, it’s that we, as Canadians, need to take control of our economic destiny.”Notley directed a few good-natured jabs at the Americans who came to Calgary for the annual energy industry trade show.“For our American guests, let me just say how brave it is for you to join us here in a country that represents such a hostile national security threat,” she said.“I should let you know, that there is in fact a battalion of Canadian geese assembling outside the doors. We’ve cleared the building of maple syrup and, in fact, if some of you are not really, really careful, we may make you drink your own beer.”last_img read more

Sri Lankan war widows trafficked as slaves to Gulf

“The numbers are insignificant compared to the over 100,000 Sri Lankan women who leave annually as domestic workers,” said S. Senthurajah, executive director of Social Organizations Networking for Development, a Jaffna-based charity. “The numbers are insignificant compared to the over 100,000 Sri Lankan women who leave annually as domestic workers,” said S. Senthurajah, executive director of Social Organizations Networking for Development, a Jaffna-based charity. Sri Lankan war widows are being trafficked as slaves to the Gulf, a report on Thomson Reuters stated.According to the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment, over 1,000 women from the north – many from female headed homes – sought jobs as maids in Gulf nations in 2015 and 2016. Central Bank data shows only 300 went in 2011. Sri Lanka is in its eighth year of peace after a 26-year conflict which ended with the defeat of the separatist Tamil Tigers in 2009.More than 100,000 died, around 65,000 remain missing and millions were uprooted from their homes during the violence, concentrated mainly in the island’s ethnic Tamil majority Eastern and Northern Provinces. Recruitment agencies employ local villagers who are known and trusted in their communities and who scout for indebted and impoverished women.They promise decent jobs, generous salaries and paint an alluring picture of a good life in a wealthy nation. All the women have to do is sign a basic contract and fill in some paperwork – but they are often unaware of any terms and conditions.This amounts to a contract of bonded labour, where the recruitment agencies – which are government registered – dupe victims into believing no fees need to be paid, said Da Silva. (Colombo Gazette) “But given that hardly anyone from the north left as domestic workers a few years back, it is an important number. It’s because they cannot make ends meet.” “But given that hardly anyone from the north left as domestic workers a few years back, it is an important number. It’s because they cannot make ends meet.”With no jobs and few opportunities to earn a livelihood, these women – many of whom look after up to four people – are being forced to borrow from money lenders, leaving them open to exploitation by trafficking networks.“They are the most vulnerable and easiest to convince to take up these offers,” said Ravindra De Silva, head of the charity Association for Friendship and Love. Yet despite the government pumping billions of dollars into infrastructure development in the north, little has been done for the estimated 90,000 women who lost their husbands, fathers and brothers during the conflict, say activists.The abuse of Asian and African maids in Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman is commonly reported.According to the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment, over 1,000 women from the north – many from female headed homes – sought jobs as maids in Gulf nations in 2015 and 2016.

Taboo Remains a Slow Slow Burn as its Story Begins to Pick

first_imgStay on target Taboo’s Finale Lived up to Most of Its PromisesTaboo Delivers Answers, Intrigue and a Torturous Cliffhanger Two episodes into Tom Hardy’s TV series, it’s becoming clear that it’s a different kind of show than what we normally see. The story develops very slowly, without hinting at any kind of mystery or reveals to come. It’s more about exploring a strange and intriguing character. This wouldn’t work so well for a weekly, episodic series if it weren’t for Tom Hardy. His performance alone is enough to carry a show that doesn’t always appear to be going anywhere.That said, this episode began to show clearer signs of the direction the story is taking. It also raises the stakes considerably in the very first scene, which is something the show definitely needed. We begin with the East India Company, where Stuart Strange threatens to have Cholmondeley fired if Delaney isn’t killed. Delaney appears to be using the land he inherited to begin his trading company. He’s dug up his diamonds and bought a ship for “The Delaney Nootka Trading Company.” Strange reasons that the Americans must be behind Delaney’s betrayal of king and country.Meanwhile, Delaney returns from buying his ship to find his horse missing. A note reading Atticus has been left behind. Delaney knows who Atticus is and goes to get his horse back. It appears Delaney is on slightly friendlier terms with Atticus than you’d expect. Even a broody mumbler like him is bound to make at least one friend, I guess. Atticus informs Delaney that a man came to him a while back trying to have his father killed. Atticus says he refused and gave Delaney a vague description. Delaney enlists Atticus to be his eyes and ears around the city.Stephen Graham as Atticus and Tom Hardy as Delaney. (Photo: Via FX)It’s not long before Delaney learns that someone is trying to kill him as well. He’s met by a girl named Winter, who lives in the brothel. She overheard a silver-toothed man speaking with Madame Helga, planning to kill Delaney. Winter takes him to the silver-toothed man’s ship, but Delaney finds no clues as to the man’s identity and sets the ship on fire. When he returns to find Winter gone, he questions Helga at the brothel. She initially denies that the girl exists, but Delaney figures out that Winter is her daughter and enlists Helga in finding the silver-toothed man.Delaney spends most of the episode trying to figure out who is after him. He takes a break to inspect his new ship and, upon realizing it once carried slaves, is overcome by flashbacks to the sunken slave ship. He strips naked, chants and carves a bird symbol into the ship’s floorboards. He then visits a doctor who is actually an American spy. He requests a meeting with the American president, but the doctor pulls a gun on him and forces him to leave.Now is when things begin to pick up. At the reading of his father’s will, it is revealed that nothing was left to Delaney’s sister and everything is going to him. The move makes his sister’s husband, Thorne Geary angry. Geary causes a scene in front of the entire court, allowing Atticus to get a good look at him. Atticus, who had been watching from the back of the courtroom, informs Delaney that Geary is the man who wanted his father killed. OK Taboo, you have my attention.Jessie Buckley as Lorna Delaney. (Photo: Via FX)Suddenly, a new challenger appears. An actress who says she’s Delaney’s father’s wife appears, asserting some claim over the inheritance. Her claim turns out to be true, but Nootka will only go to her if Delaney dies. There also appears to be some sexual tension between them, because the show takes its title literally. Speaking of which, Delaney goes out that night to creep on his sister some more. She asks if the rumors of his cannibalism are true. He offers to tell her everything if she comes with him. She refuses.As Delaney walks away, he notices a woman following him. It turns out to be the silver-toothed man holding a knife. After a brutally-shot struggle, Delaney slices the man up and takes a big bite out of his throat. Guess we know where those cannibalism rumors come from. Unfortunately, Delaney took a knife to the gut in the fight. As he passes out, he flashes back to Africa and the credits roll.As the series goes on, it’s becoming clear that maybe this shouldn’t have been a weekly series on a traditional cable channel. This is a show that takes its time to put all its pieces into place. The story didn’t even really get going until the final scenes of last night’s episode. That would be easier to handle if it were on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon. If every episode were available right away to binge over a weekend, the slow start wouldn’t stand out so much. As it is now, we have to wait a week to see if the story will go anywhere.What saves the show is the acting. Tom Hardy is still phenomenal in this series. His performance draws you in and makes you care about this strange, dark anti-hero. Even though the story is slow to start, Hardy makes up for it with a performance that’s impossible to turn away from. He’s created an interesting character here, and you can’t wait to see what he does next. The rest of the cast is fantastic as well. Having Sherlock‘s Mark Gatiss show up as a gout-ridden prince was a welcome surprise, and his scenery-chewing performance added some much-needed levity to a brooding show. The cast makes me want to keep watching. That will likely be enough to carry the show until the story finds its rhythm.last_img read more

MS Dhoni gets BCCIs backing on Balidaan insignia row Indian board writes

first_imgMS Dhoni wearing the glove containing the ‘Balidaan Badge’IANSThe controversy over International Cricket Council (ICC) directing former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to remove the ‘Balidaan’ badge from his glove has taken a new turn. Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has written to ICC requesting the latter organisation to let MSD continue sporting the insignia on his glove.Vinod Rai, chief of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that is currently heading the BCCI, informed media persons of this latest development. “We have already written (to ICC) to seek permission for MS Dhoni to wear ‘Balidaan’ insignia on his gloves, will speak more after the (CoA) meeting,” Rai was quoted as saying by the ANI.The Balidaan insignia is the symbol of Indian Army’s Para Special Force, a reserve unit, of which Dhoni has been made the honorary member. Currently, the wicket-keeper batsman holds the honorary rank of a Lt Colonel and has often shown his respect for the organisation through various gestures.Earlier in the year, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had complained to ICC over the Indian team donning military style camouflage caps during an ODI against Australia. At that time, the Indian board responded by informing everyone that prior permission had been taken by them from cricket’s governing body before going ahead with the gesture. The Indian team wore the special cap in the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi.BCCI TwitterThe rules of ICCThe reason for all this controversy is section G1 under the Clothing and Equipment category of ICC rules which prohibits cricketers from sporting logos or symbols conveying non-cricketing messages. It states: ‘Players and team officials shall not be permitted to wear, display or otherwise convey messages through arm bands or other items affixed to clothing or equipment (“Personal Messages”) unless approved in advance by both the player or team official’s board and the ICC Cricket Operations Department. Approval shall not be granted for messages which relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes. The ICC shall have the final say in determining whether any such message is approved. For the avoidance of doubt, where a message is approved by the player or team official’s board but subsequently disapproved by the ICC’s Cricket Operations Department, the player or team official shall not be permitted to wear, display or otherwise convey such message in international matches.’In 2014, during the Test series between India and England in the latter country, Moeen Ali had come out to bat with a wristband displaying the words ‘Save Gaza’ and ‘Free Palestine.’ The ICC, through its match referee David Boon, asked Ali not to continue wearing these particular wristbands.last_img read more

IROS gets earful on Googles selfdriving cars w video

first_img Citation: IROS gets earful on Google’s self-driving cars (w/ video) (2011, October 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-10-iros-earful-google-self-driving-cars.html The latest overview about these cars was presented recently in a keynote speech at the IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in San Francisco. Stanford University professor Sebastian Thrun, who guides the project, and Google engineer Chris Urmson, who is the project’s tech lead, walked the audience through some performance specifics. Explore further What, then, makes the car so successful in obeying traffic rules and avoiding obstacles? A laser range finder mounted on the roof of the car is a core component. This is a Velodyne 64-beam laser that generates a detailed 3-D map of the environment. The car then combines the laser measurements with high-resolution maps of the world, producing different types of data models. The vehicle carries four radars, mounted on the front and rear bumpers, that allow the car to “see” far enough to deal with fast traffic on freeways; a camera near the rear-view mirror, that detects traffic lights; and a GPS, inertial measurement unit, and wheel encoder, It’s quite possible, however, that some people may find it entirely difficult to believe driverless cars will be a part of the six o clock commute drive home, a part of the wearying ordeal of staying safe from erratic drivers, tricky intersections, and last-second decision makers in neighboring lanes. At the IEEE event, the Google pair showed footage that makes a convincing case for the advantages of riding in self-driving cars. The audience saw the on-board computer and how it detects other cars, pedestrians, and traffic lights. The video shows also how the car behaves at an intersection. After the light turned green, the car starts to make a turn, but if pedestrians cross, the car yields to them. The car also yields to a man who decides to cross at the last minute. At a four-way intersection, the car yields to other vehicles based on road rules; if other cars do not reciprocate, it advances a bit to show to the other drivers its intention. Without programming that kind of behavior, Urmson said, it would be impossible for the robot car to drive in the real world.Thrun, who came to work on the Google project from Stanford, has all along hammered home a message that driving accidents are the number one cause of death for young people and many of the accidents are due to human error. Thrun believes that robotics, not humans, can do the better job in making driving decisions and sparing lives. That does not sound so crazy to the state of Nevada, which earlier this year passed a law authorizing the Department of Transportation to develop rules to govern driverless cars. Nevada’s bill sets the framework for “authorizing… the operation of, and a driver’s license endorsement for operators of, autonomous vehicles.”Thrun and Urmson talk of many challenges ahead in the future of driverless vehicles, including sorting out legal and liability issues.

The latest stats find Google’s fleet of robotic vehicles have done over 190,000 miles with only occasional human intervention. The company has welcomed favorable news inquiries, from mainstream TV interviews to newspaper reporters, that their self-driving cars can make it on their own on the roads, even in city traffic.

As part of an initiative to better understand placental function, the Aplio 500 Platinum will be used at the Fetal Cardiovascular Center at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) Maternal-Fetal Medicine led by Alfred Abuhamad, M.D., which received a $2.725 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).“Through our research study, we hope to develop an algorithm that can potentially help predict late pregnancy complications in early gestation by using new, high-tech ultrasound software, provided by Toshiba,” said Abuhamad, Mason C. Andrews Professor and Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and vice dean of clinical affairs at EVMS. “Our study is designed to identify which ultrasound tools are best at determining women who will develop poor pregnancy outcomes and those who will not. If we have the ability to identify which pregnancies will have complications in the future through ultrasound, then we can address it early with interventions and therapies.” Toshiba’s Aplio 500 Platinum ultrasound system provides powerful clinical imaging technology for advanced visualization, quantification and intervention. For example, EVMS will leverage the system’s Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI), which allows clinicians to see small vessels and to visualize low-velocity microvascular blood flow without the need for more invasive modalities and the use of radiologic contrast. EVMS will also utilize Toshiba’s Shear Wave Elastography to non-invasively measure tissue stiffness, while MicroPure enables better visualization of microcalcifications compared to grayscale imaging.The grant was awarded to EVMS in collaboration with the University of Texas-Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas and Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. as part of the Human Placenta Project, which is a research initiative by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).

Japanese scientists were reaching similar conclusions about β-catenin’s role in preventing head regeneration in Phagocata kawakatsui, "The Food Network issued this statement: "Food Network takes matters like this very seriously and we are putting relaunch plans for ‘Molto Mario’ on hold.Smith Collection/Gado/Getty ImagesRaceWe Keep Seeking InclusionAnnette Gordon-ReedJun 30 2016IdeasGordon-Reed a professor of legal history at Harvard is the author with Peter S Onuf of Most Blessed of the Patriarchs: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the ImaginationYou would expect it in a young country — a country made up of people from all over the world a country born of the highest ideals yet made possible by the violent displacement of one group of people and the enslavement of another We in the United States have been arguing about extolling criticizing loving challenging and defending the American experiment from the country’s inception What is the nature of the equality of which Jefferson spoke in the Declaration of Independence Was it for all people What of his phrase life liberty and the pursuit of happinessIn the earliest days only a select group of voices could be heard on these matters White property-owning males were the dominant force in setting the nation’s political and economic agenda But over the years white women blacks — enslaved and free — and newly arrived immigrants wondered what the American experiment should mean for them Whenever able they and their allies sought to shape their meanings by insisting that the country’s seemingly boundless promise be open to themThese efforts have always required questioning and adjusting the American narrative in ways large and small The most major adjustment of course was the Civil War which destroyed legalized chattel slavery and set the stage for the transformation of the Constitution The amendments to that document began the long struggle to bring African Americans into equal citizenship Women of all races fought for and won the right to vote the right to control their bodies and the right to participate in every aspect of American life This process almost always driven by law has played itself out inexorably as other groups have sought to become full-fledged members of "the people" referred to in the preamble to the ConstitutionBut as Frederick Douglass famously noted "Power concedes nothing without a demand" There has always been resistance to transforming the American narrative The restless nature of our society frightens many who would narrowly circumscribe the amount and nature of change to be absorbedStanding still however has not been the American way We seem programmed to move forward as we reassess aspects of any given status quo In this spirit on college campuses and in other venues across the nation people are demanding a heightened level of awareness over the messages that language and the physical environment convey about who is entitled to fit comfortably in America We are asked to think of what it means for example to be a black student assigned to a dormitory named to honor a person who believed that black people were inferior beings fit only for slavery or for a second-class and segregated existence Why should there be monuments to people who sought to destroy the US and to maintain slavery until they were ready to end it if ever Things that are taken for granted perhaps should not beThe quest for a reformed and inclusive American narrative one that recognizes the value of all people has not been easy But if our history is any judge the battle will continue so long as we hold true to the best of our ideals The US has ever been and will likely always be an evolving experimentFew hours after the release of the former petroleum Minister and elder statesman Dr Shettima Ali Monguno the JTF in Borno state has said that its men had rescued the parents of a federal House reps member representing Borno north who were abducted at their resident Ngamdu in Kaga local government area of Borno state Father of the federal legislator Mallam Sanda Sheriff 80 years of age told DailyPost in Maiduguri that he was abducted along with his wife 70 years by some gunmen who force their way into their house in Ngamdu According to him “when they bundled us into one of their vehicles from the house the vehicle broke down and they burnt it then they moved us into one of the car a bus which they stole in our village and took us to a place where they change the vehicle They were taking us to somewhere in the bush when they suddenly stopped the vehicle and took to their heels After a while we saw the soldiers who came to rescue us and they brought us here(JTF HQ)” He said the kidnappers took away all their money and were told that they were being kidnapped because of their son who is a member of the house of representative He said that they held that he has not been helping his constituency since he was elected into the house Speaking to the JTF spokesman Lt Col Sagir Musa on the abduction of the parents of the legislator pleaded that the name of the said legislator should not be mentioned for security reason but that the JTF has got in touch with the legislator who is making arrangement on how to received his parents from the JTF headquarters in Maiduguri The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company EEDC has restated its stand on the controversy over power distribution within the Ariara Market DAILY POST reports that the contention is between the EEDC and Ariara Market Energy Solution Limited (AMESL) a company spearheading the Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network IEDN The Ariaria experiment is said to be a private sector driven project owned by Ariaria Market Energy Solution Limited (AMESL) which aims to generate and distribute off-grid power to the 32000 shops in Ariaria Touble had started following the announcement by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) an Agency of the Federal Government to initiate a rural electrification programme whereby it proposed grid power generation and distribution to Universities and some strategic markets including Ariaria Market in Abia However it was later learnt that the company licensed to operate within the Ariaria Market was private investor and not government-owned Besides the EEDC is also canvasing that the Ariaria area of operation is within its business circle and that it was not ready to concede same to any other company The company said to fight the alleged trespass it had sent a Notice of Objection dated 15th March 2018 to NERC and had as well instituted legal proceedings at the Federal High Court of Nigeria Umuahia Judicial Division seeking declaratory and injunctive reliefs as well as damages Already the court presided over by DE Osiagor has granted an order of interim injunction restraining the AMESL from constructing or continuing the construction of an Independent Electricity Distribution Network within EEDC’s electricity distribution licensed area Also in a statement by EEDC management made available to Orient Daily by its head of communications Mr Chukwuemeka Ezeh titled: “Setting the Record Straight” the company recalled that “between 2003 and 2010 there were a number of incidents of fire outbreak at the Timber Market in Ariaria Market which usually damaged the electricity distribution facilities in the area The damaged facilities include: the 300KV substation low tension poles insulators and aluminum conductors worth several hundred millions of Naira As a result of this the attention of Abia State government was necessary to provide a lasting solution to the incessant fire outbreaks It was subsequently agreed that the Timber Market would be relocated “Before the relocation was effected the privatisation occurred and the franchise was handed over to the Core Investor Interstate Electrics Limited The situation of Ariaria Market was brought to the attention of the Board of Directors The Board duly approved funding towards the rehabilitation of the facilities destroyed by the fire outbreak “The efforts to commence the refurbishment replacement and reconnection of the traders in Ariaria Market were however constrained by a suit filed at the Federal High Court Abuja by Geometrics Aba Power Limited claiming that the Federal Government of Nigeria had in 2005 granted it a lease over the assets and customers in Aba and Ariaria geographical area and as a result their company was entitled to manage upgrade refurbish and administer customers within the said geographical area The suit also sought several injunctive reliefs against EEDC regarding the Aba/Ariaria geographical area “Owing to the pendency of the suit and the various injunctive reliefs being claimed before the Court EEDC was unable to continue its investment plans to refurbish replace and reconnect the customers in the Ariaria market “Sometime in March 2016 the Honourable Minister of Power and the Office of the Vice President of Federal Republic intervened and brokered an out of court settlement between the parties which culminated in execution of a Term Sheet between the parties in April 2016 The fulfillment of the settlement terms however did not come to fruition due to the inability of Geometric to meet their commitment to Interstate Consequently in late 2017 EEDC went ahead to make some investment in the network when it became obvious that Geometric has reneged in its commitment to Interstate; having waited for 18 months for a commitment that was due in April 2016 “The Rural Electrification Agency (REA) an Agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria subsequently initiated a rural electrification programme whereby it proposed off grid power generation and distribution to Universities and some strategic markets including Ariaria Market in Abia This initiative was publicised in some electronic and print media stating that the REA had commenced technical studies of the identified project areas “With due consideration that the Federal Government of Nigeria still owns 40% shares in its business EEDC planned to negotiate with the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) with regard to the distribution of electricity in the Ariaria Market geographical area as REA does not possess a distribution license and neither are they empowered to build a distribution network “Contrary to the understanding that it was REA that was developing the off-grid power project at Ariaria Market as published by the Agency in some print and electronic media EEDC was surprised to notice that a company known as Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited had sponsored a Public Notice in New Telegraph Newspaper dated January 24 2018 announcing that it had applied to NERC for an Independent Electricity Distribution Network License for Ariaria market “Concerned by this development EEDC conducted several searches at the Corporate Affairs Commission and discovered that Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited is a private enterprise with convoluted shareholdings comprising of several companies and shareholders respectively and is indeed a Special Purpose Vehicle for a private off grid electricity power project by private interest groups and not by the Federal Government as earlier presented to members of the public “In fact what had been assumed was a government initiative by REA metamorphosed into a purely private sector business detailing the names of a chain of companies and shareholders as stated above “Furthermore EEDC is not aware of any transparent procurement process by REA that assigned the project which was ostensibly conceptualised and funded by the government to private developers It is noteworthy that as a socially responsible company EEDC upgraded and refurbished the Shoe Market which adjoins Ariaria Market; and Ariaria was to follow before REA announced their intention to develop the Market in the hope that they will hand the network over to EEDC after development “The shoe market currently enjoys good supply at very reasonable rates which will be extended to Ariaria Market As a customer focused company there is need to highlight the potentially high tariff the customers will pay under the IEDN regime compared to the relatively low tariff the Shoe Market customers currently pay” The company insisted that “by this singular act Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited encroached and trespassed on EEDC’s distribution licensed coverage area by illegally constructing distribution lines without a license nor the authorization of EEDC “This act is in clear contravention of the regulatory provision that no company can set up a distribution network within a franchise area of a distribution company where there is already an existing and active distribution facility in the area Furthermore there are various conditions to be fulfilled for an intending applicant under the NERC Independent Electricity Distribution Network Regulations 2012 and the NERC Regulations for Mini-Grids 2016 These conditions however do not appear to have been fulfilled by the applicants “It becomes expedient to reiterate that it is an illegality and indeed an unlawful act for any organisation to attempt to embark on the construction of an independent electricity distribution network within EEDC’s licensed coverage area in contravention of extant regulatory provisions “Having set the record straight we are unable to comment further as the matter remains subject to litigation We hope to provide further clarification in due course and appreciate the patience and understanding of our esteemed customers as we strive to deliver on our unequivocal and unwavering mandate to deliver power to the South-East” it further stated Meanwhile one of the investors in AMESL Ubani Nkaginieme had told Business Day that AMESL was aware of moves in a court in Umuahia against the Ariaria Project He however described the Ariaria experiment as a blessing to the Enyimba City and a win-win to the traders the association the investor (AMESL) the Abia State government and the federal government He said all the necessary approvals were obtained but that their lawyers would do the needful as soon as AMESL was duly served At that time, Dean Oliver notes that wins are determined by four factors: shooting efficiency, counting it as an important effort to combat terrorist groups.
