That is not happening. That event has been cancelled and our contract has been frustrated.“So we will talk to all relevant parties about those rights when they become available again but at this point there is [sic] no concrete details, so for the moment we are out.”Australia had been due to host this year’s edition of the men’s T20 World Cup in October and November but earlier this month it was announced that the country would stage the event in 2022 instead amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Nine had been due to show free-to-air coverage of the World Cup in Australia but the two-year postponement of the tournament has led to the disbandment of its organising committee and Marks believes the rescheduling calls into question whether Nine’s rights deal is still valid.Nine holds rights to ICC events in Australia, including the Cricket World Cup, from 2020 to 2023, and Marks said in February that the broadcaster would be targeting a reduction of up to A$100m (€61.3m/$72.5m) in annualised costs over the next three years. Marks was speaking earlier today (Thursday) following the publishing of Nine’s full-year financial results. Nine’s revenue dipped by seven per cent to A$2.1bn amid a significant decrease in advertising spend due to Covid-19.Nine has retained an interest in cricket by televising a series of global events including last year’s World Cup, this year’s women’s T20 World Cup Australia, as well as the Ashes in 2019.However, after four decades of beaming international cricket into Australian homes during the summer, Nine switched to tennis two years ago with a $300 million, five-year deal to televise the Australian Open.

One of the first interactive rules we teach our very young children (besides “share”) is “say thank you.” Our hope is that the perfunctory phrase evolves into a meaningful expression of appreciation.Elissa and I volunteered to distribute shirts to smiling Disney runners participating in 5K, 10K and/or half-marathon races. Many of the runners receiving the shirts said, “thank you for volunteering,” and the ESPN Disney staff said “thank you” as we walked out of the building at the end of our shift.Everyone likes to be appreciated for offering time and attention, including those who are just doing their job: the cashier, the teacher, the nurse, the barista, the flight attendant, the receptionist… everyone. It should be more than a habit to say thank you to anyone who offers even the smallest gesture, the person who holds the elevator, lets you step in line because you only have a few items, volunteers for… pretty much anything.I love this ancient Jewish insight: When the world is the way it needs to be, there will be no need to recite prayers for peace, for we will have overcome pettiness and rivalry. There will be no need to pray for health, for we will know how to prevent disease. There will be no need pray to end poverty and hunger, for we will know how to take care of everyone. But there will always be the need for prayers of thanksgiving.In the Talmud, Rabbi Meir teaches, you must “offer 100 utterances of thanks every day.” Say thank you as often as you can, every opportunity you get.” And he was not just talking to children.

Surrey care home gives royal salute to Dementia Care Tagged with: Celebrity A care home for former seafarers in Surrey welcomed HRH The Princess Royal to open its new dedicated dementia facility last week (14 July), the first in the UK to provide specialist care to former seafarers suffering from the condition, just days after an All Party Parliamentary Group of MPs called for hospital beds in the UK to be cut by 10 percent.The ‘Princess Royal Annexe’ has been opened at The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society (RASS) which provides dedicated accommodation, nursing, and care for former seafarers at the Weston Acres sheltered housing and residential care centre near Banstead.The new facility will cater for up to 36 residents suffering with the condition, and has been specifically designed to include features enabling care to be tailored to highly individual needs. Residents such as Maurice Parkin (89) and his wife Vera (89), who suffers with the condition, live in rooms with an adjoining door meaning they can continue to live together whilst accessing care specific to Vera’s needs.The home offers specialised dementia support from trained staff meaning residents don’t have to travel off-site to access care at hospital. Other facilities included a sensory garden which acts as a safe haven for residents to access fresh air as well as hand massage and reflexology, proven to aid relaxation in dementia patients. Memory boxes have also been installed by each resident’s room including items such as photographs, medals and trinkets to aid recognition and independence.Communication is key to the care that will be delivered at the new unit, and specialists at the home have learned a series of therapies to trigger memories through conversation including memory mapping and nostalgia sessions.Commander Brian Boxall-Hunt OBE, Chief Executive of Royal Alfred Seafarers Society, said: “We are proud to be welcoming HRH The Princess Royal to our new dementia facility. Recent research has shown the number of people living with dementia is increasing, in fact by 2021 a million people are likely to be suffering from the condition. By combining specialist care for our residents with peer support from fellow mariners we can make the lives of those suffering from dementia as comfortable and fulfilling as possible.”HRH The Princess Royal said:“It’s a pleasure to return to see the new annexe. What you have achieved is extraordinary and it has been really well done. It says a lot for the long term planning and care that you give and I hope I have the opportunity to come back to see you all enjoying it. It shows real atmosphere and long term vision and you can have confidence that it will be here for as long as you need it.”Home Manager Anne Kasey is a Registered Nurse and has been with the charity for 27 years. She adds: “Dementia is such a tragic condition for families, and when in its most severe form, can be a kind of ‘social death’. The identity of the person can disappear as the brain degenerates. This is why it’s so important to work closely with the resident and their family to establish who the person is.“The charity currently cares for around 20 residents whose dementia is at so severe a level that they can no longer live independently, so ensuring that they are as happy and comfortable as possible on a daily basis is of utmost importance.”Anne continued: “By providing patients with activities and distractions tailored to their background and interests, we can try to make their later years as comfortable and fulfilling as possible. We have an expression here called ‘seize the day’, which means if we can run an activity or an excursion that we know will benefit a particular resident, we will do it.”The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society is a registered charity and was established in 1865. It is incorporated under the Royal Charter, with HRH the Princess Royal as its patron. Its primary aim is to provide accommodation, care and support to former seafarers, who may need special help and like-minded companionship in their old age due to the isolated nature of their careers. Under the Royal Charter, ‘seafarers’ include Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, fishermen and port workers, as well as their widows or dependants. The Society also welcomes residents of non-seafaring backgrounds when able to do so.For more information on the dementia facility at Weston Acres please contact the home on 01737 360106 or visit the website at www.royalalfredseafarers.com and view the special video.

Facebook Twitter Former Purdue Ag Dean Says Trump Trade Tactic is Wrong Former Purdue Ag Dean Says Trump Trade Tactic is WrongA former Dean of the Purdue College of Agriculture says President Trump is correct to take on China over trade but the way he has gone about it is wrong. Bob Thompson told Hoosier Ag Today, “This tariff war we have launched is really screwing up our international competitiveness.” He added the tariff approach has been especially tough on U.S. agriculture.“We have lost a lot of export in 2018 and into 2019, and it has damaged our reputation as a reliable supplier. Nobody has ever won a trade war.” But Thompson, who headed up rural development at the World Bank after leaving Purdue, said Trump was not wrong in taking on Beijing over trade, “We had to take on China over their stealing of international properties, but personally I feel using tariffs was the completely wrong way to get their attention.”Thompson, who served as Dean from 1987 to 1993, says U.S. agriculture is in a competitive struggle to grow its share of the world food market.“We are not the only player in this game. Brazil is investing more in ag research than we are, even China is. In recent years, Russia has come on like gangbusters in the export market.”He said the U.S. will have a tough time rebuilding market share and restoring its reputation. Thompson was one of the keynote presenters at the Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry.

The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Facebook ReddIt printVoters across Texas passed seven statewide constitutional amendments yesterday, ranging from changes to the homestead exemption to the wording of state hunting and fishing rights.The election saw relatively low voter turnout in Tarrant county, with only three precincts seeing a turnout of 20 to 30 percent, according to the Tarrant County elections website. Overall voter turnout for the county was just under 10 percent. In Tarrant county, 9.4 percent of registered voters made it to the polls compared to 11.3 percent statewide.Below is a description of each proposition that was on this year’s ballot.Prop 1 – Proposition one increased the amount of the homestead exemption for public schools from $15,000 to $25,000. The proposition is estimated to save homeowners between $120 and $130 per year on their taxes. The Texas Tribune created an interactive tool here to calculate how much you may save based on your zip code.Prop 2 – Proposition two extended the 100 percent property tax exemption for spouses of totally disabled veterans who have died. Previously the exemption only applied to veterans who had died after 2010, but this proposition means the exemptions now apply to those who died before 2010. However, the exemptions only apply if the spouse has not remarried.Prop 3- Proposition three pertains to the requirements placed on state officials. It repeals the requirements that certain executive officials reside in the state capital, Austin, while in office. This means that the land and agriculture commissioners, comptroller, attorney general and members of the Railroad Commission will be able to live somewhere other than Austin.Prop 4- Proposition four falls under the category of sports and gambling. It allows the affiliated charitable foundations of professional sports teams to conduct raffles as fundraisers. Texas sports teams can now hold raffles at all home games, which is good news for the proposition’s biggest supporter, the Dallas Cowboys.Prop 5 – Proposition five is the Texas Population Requirement for Private Road Work Amendment. It authorized counties with 7,500 people or less to perform private road construction and maintenance. Previously, only counties with populations of 5,000 people or less were allowed to do so.Prop 6 – Proposition six added text to the state constitution regarding the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife. The amendment created a section 34 to article 1 of the Texas Constitution. The new section reads: “The people have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to laws or regulations to conserve and manage wildlife and preserve the future of hunting and fishing.” You can read the rest of the amendment here.Prop 7 – Proposition seven supplied funding to the State Highway Fund from the state sales tax and motor vehicle sales and rental tax. The proposition did not create new revenue but diverted existing revenue to the State Highway Fund. The funds collected will be used to build and maintain “nontolled roads and the reduction of certain transportation-related debt.” The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Fort Worth braces for more severe weather Linkedin + posts Linkedin Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store The 109 Twitter
