Ohio State Fans Will Love ESPN Analyst’s Comment On Justin Fields

first_imgjustin fields smiles during a game for georgiaATHENS, GA – SEPTEMBER 15: Justin Fields #1 of the Georgia Bulldogs smiles as he leaves the field after the game against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders on September 15, 2018 at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia. (Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)Though he has yet to be formally named the starter by Ryan Day, Justin Fields is widely expected to play most of the season at quarterback for Ohio State. One ESPN analyst had a comment today on Fields that should be especially exciting for Buckeyes fans.Taking to Twitter on Sunday, ESPN analyst Ryan Clark recalled seeing Fields and Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence at The Opening several years ago. He said that he felt Fields was the best he’d ever seen for a player his age.When I saw Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence at @TheOpening 3 summers ago I knew they’d both be stars. Honestly, Fields was the best I’d ever seen at that age. So, to watch where his journey has gone these last 2 years is just crazy to me.Clark is no Ohio State homer, so you don’t exactly need to take his statement with a grain of salt. Considering how good Trevor Lawrence was as a freshman, even being in the same paragraph as him has got to be pretty reassuring.Fields transferred to Ohio State in the offseason after riding the bench for Georgia as a freshman.When I saw Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence at @TheOpening 3 summers ago I knew they’d both be stars. Honestly, Fields was the best I’d ever seen at that age. So, to watch where his journey has gone these last 2 years is just crazy to me.— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) August 18, 2019As a prospect in 2018, Fields was the No. 2 overall recruit in the country per 247Sports. He was the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 8 prospect on the site’s all-time rankings.But despite his big move to Columbus, he has huge shoes to fill. If named the starter, he’ll be taking over for Dwayne Haskins following a record-breaking year at quarterback. His strong season culminated in a historic blowout win over Michigan, a Big Ten title, and a Rose Bowl win.Suffice it to say, being about as good as or better than Trevor Lawrence may be Fields’ best chance of leading the Buckeyes closer to a national title.last_img read more

US Open: Nick Kyrgios sent packing as Andrey Rublev reaches last 16

first_img Reuters New YorkSeptember 1, 2019UPDATED: September 1, 2019 10:42 IST US Open 2019: Nick Kyrgios run came to an end in the 3rd round on Saturday (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSRublev defeated Kyrgios 7-6(5), 7-6(5), 6-3 in 3rd round matchI had chances. I just didn’t take them: Kyrgios on close defeatKyrgios lost despite powering down 30 aces to Rublev’s 12Nick Kyrgios’ eventful US Open ended in the third round as Russian Andrey Rublev turned aside the fiery Australian 7-6(5), 7-6(5), 6-3 in a battle of big servers on Saturday.Rublev looked up to the task from the start and proved to be unflappable against Kyrgios, who complained to his team in the box several times about not being able to see and later said he took time adjusting to the massive Arthur Ashe Stadium.The Australian seemed to have no issues with his vision on serve, however, at one point firing four consecutive aces in a 40-second game to force a first-set tiebreak. He saved two set points before sending a backhand just wide to lose the opener.Kyrgios got his only two break point chances while leading 3-2 in the second set but Rublev beat them both back.The pair remained on serve to bring up another tiebreak and while Kyrgios jumped out to a 4-0 lead a determined Rublev took seven of the next eight points to snatch the set and grab control of the match.”I had chances. I just didn’t take them,” said Kyrgios. “Nowhere near my best tennis, but it is what it is.”The final set was on serve until Rublev got the only break of the match and immediately consolidated for a 5-2 lead that sent him on his way.Kyrgios lost despite powering down 30 aces to Rublev’s 12 and winning almost 90% of his first-serve points while saving three of the four break points he faced.advertisement”His serve is the best on tour. I was just trying to focus on me to serve also well to keep my serve and see if I win tiebreaks or not,” said Rublev. “Today was my day and I am happy.”Rublev came into the year’s final Grand Slam with plenty of confidence after he earned the biggest win of his career when he beat Roger Federer in the third round at Cincinnati.After making headlines this week for both his comments and on-court behaviour, Kyrgios avoided controversy on Saturday but did shout “whistleblower” in the direction of a line judge who had gone to the chair umpire to report foul language.Rublev, who reached the New York quarter-final two years ago, will face Italian Matteo Berrettini in the fourth round on Monday.Also Read | US Open: Naomi Osaka consoles tearful Coco Gauff with heartwarming gesture after 3rd-round matchAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Was on verge of getting fired from XMen

first_imgLondon: Hollywood star Hugh Jackman has revealed that he was almost fired from playing Wolverine in X-Men films. The 50-year-old Australian actor, who played Wolverine for 16 years, said he nearly lost the role during filming on the first movie. “Five weeks into shooting X-Men, I was on the verge of getting fired… The head of the studio pulled me aside at lunch and he told me that they were worried at the studio, that they weren’t seeing on camera what they’d seen in the audition.” Also Read – ‘Will be acting till I die”’And the very next day the director pulled me aside and told me exactly the same thing…So clearly they’d been talking and I was freaking out. I’m thinking, oh, this is the talk you get before you get fired,” said Jackman. According to Contactmusic, Jackman’s wife Deborra-lee Furness helped him in overcoming the fear of getting fired by pushing him to believe in his talent. “And she was right. And to me, that is love: someone who believes in you even when you don’t really believe in yourself.”last_img read more

Indian delegation hold talks in Sri Lanka

The delegation is scheduled to visit other parts of the country as well and hold talks with Sri Lankan opposition members including members of the Tamil National Alliance, a key Tamil political party in Sri Lanka.The delegation, which consists of members from India’s ruling Congress party, the BJP, CPM, SP, BJD and JD(U) will also meet Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa during their six day tour to the country.Two major political parties from Tamil Nadu, the AIADMK and DMK, withdrew from the delegation at the last minute as they felt the visit will merely be a sightseeing tour. The External Affairs Ministry said that on Tuesday the delegation is scheduled to travel to the former war affected areas in the north of the country.Officials said that in the north the Indian parliamentary delegation will get a firsthand look at some of the projects undertaken by India to help the Tamils in the country. A visiting Indian parliamentary delegation held talks in Colombo on Tuesday to assess the post war situation in the country, the Sri Lankan External Affairs Ministry said.The delegation led by the Indian opposition leader in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj met the External Affairs Minister G.L Peiris as well as the Economic Affairs Minister Basil Rajapaksa. The AIDMK led by Jayalalitha Jeyaram and DMK led by M. Karunanidhi, have been calling on the Indian government to act on human rights concerns in Sri Lanka. The delegation also visited the Sri Lankan parliament and met the Deputy Speaker of parliament as well as other government officials. “The Indian delegation was briefed on the rehabilitation and reconstruction work in the north and east as well as other post war developments,” an External Affairs Ministry official said. read more

Top UN refugee official issues warning on EU moves on asylum

Ruud Lubbers issued his warning in a statement, saying the number of asylum-seekers entering the EU is falling and “there is no need to focus so single-mindedly on reducing standards and trying to deter or deny protection to as many people as possible.” Mr. Lubbers is alarmed by the draft qualification directive, which defines who is a refugee and qualifies for protection, and the draft asylum procedures directive, which determines how that decision is reached in individual cases. He said that if the draft directives become law, they could have a knock-on effect around the world, with other countries becoming willing to water down their protection of refugees. The High Commissioner said many existing EU members seemed to want to force their most controversial measures on to the 10 States that will join the EU on 1 May. “In some cases, these practices [outlined in the draft directives] have not even been passed into their own national legislation, or are under domestic legal challenge, yet they are pushing them at the EU level,” he said. Mr. Lubbers said the net effect of the proposed measures would be that many genuine refugees were more likely to be forced back to their homelands, where they faced the risk of persecution. read more

Global response keeps door open to limit temperature rise to 2 degrees

A new report issued today by the secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) assesses the collective impact of over 140 national climate action plans, called Intended Nationally Determined Contributions or INDCs, and says that together, they can dramatically slow global emissions into the atmosphere.INDCs will form the basis of the agreement expected to be reached at the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP21), to be held in Paris, France starting at the end of November. “These INDCs – or national climate action plans – represent a clear and determined down payment on a new era of climate ambition from the global community of nations,” said Christiana Figueres, UNFCCC Executive Secretary, in a press release.“Governments from all corners of the Earth have signalled through their INDCs that they are determined to play their part according to their national circumstances and capabilities,” she continued. Ms. Figueres highlighted that if countries fully implement their INDCs, these plans together will begin to make a significant dent in the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. “As a floor they provide a foundation upon which ever higher ambition can be built. I am confident that these INDCs are not the final word in what countries are ready to do and achieve over time – the journey to a climate-safe future is underway,” she noted, adding that the agreement to be inked in Paris can catalyze that transition.The report captures the overall impact of national climate plans covering 146 countries as of 1 October. This comprises 119 separate INDCs from 147 Parties to the UNFCCC, including the EU, a single Party representing 28 countries. In the past month, more INDCs have been submitted, and UNFCC says submissions are likely to continue.Meanwhile, the 146 plans include all developed nations and three quarters of developing countries under the UNFCCC, covering 86 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions – almost four times the level of the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, the world’s first international emission reduction treaty that required emissions cuts from industrialized countries.One of the key findings is that the INDCs will bring global average emissions per capita down by as much as 8 per cent by 2025 and 9 per cent by 2030.“The INDCs have the capability of limiting the forecast temperature rise to around 2.7 degrees Celsius by 2100, by no means enough but a lot lower than the estimated four, five, or more degrees of warming projected by many prior to the INDCs,” said Ms. Figueres.According to UNFCCC, the report does not directly assess implications for temperature change by the end of the century under the INDCs because information on emissions beyond 2030 is required. But other independent analyses have, based on a range of assumptions, methodologies and data sources, attempted to estimate the impact of the INDCs on temperature leading to a range of average estimates below, at or above 3 degrees Celsius.In addition, UNFCCC noted that all analyses deliver more or less similar emission levels in 2025 and 2030 and all confirm that the INDCs, if fully implemented, are an important advance on previous scenarios.“These plans set a determined course, clearly recognizing that successful climate action achieves not only low emissions but a host of other economic and social benefits for governments, citizens and business,” Ms. Figueres stressed.“Backed by financial support for developing countries, a clear long-term destination of climate neutrality in the second half of the century and a ratcheting up of ambition in a structured, transparent and timely way, the INDCs provide an inspiring part of what will become the Paris package,” she added. read more

Reds Indians week in review

Cleveland IndiansThe Cleveland Indians struggled offensively once again, going 2-4 in series’ against the Los Angeles Angels and the Minnesota Twins.After taking only one of three from the Angels, the Tribe returned home and only won one in a weekend series against the division-leading Twins.The Indians are 10-14, 5-and-a-half games behind the Twins in the American League Central and in third place behind Detroit.Studs: Austin Kearns. The former Cincinnati Reds slugger had a big week, with seven hits and six RBIs in three games against the Angels. He came into Sunday’s game against Minnesota hitting .357, with two home runs and 12 RBIs.Duds: The offense. The Indians’ offense continues to be a major disappointment, with an American League-worst 85 runs. Those fortunes could change when highly touted catching prospect Carlos Santana gets called up from the Columbus Clippers.Up Next: The Indians continue their homestand with three games against Toronto beginning Monday and a three-game weekend series with the Detroit Tigers. Cincinnati RedsStep by step, the Reds are creeping back from a sluggish start to the season.The Reds opened up their week on the road with a three-game series at Houston.For the first time this season, Reds fans had their chance to bring out the brooms, as the Reds swept the series against the Astros.Pitchers Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo had some solid outings, each recording a win in the first and third games of the series respectively, and Mike Leake continued a brilliant start to his professional career recording a win off his seven-inning, five-hit performance in the second game.Pitcher Johnny Cueto helped the Reds’ win-streak get to five games on Friday, as the Reds won at St. Louis.The streak then came to an end Saturday as the Reds couldn’t match the Cardinals’ late-game surge, losing the game 6-3.Studs: The Rotation. At the beginning of the season, it seemed like these guys were never going to win a game for the Reds. In just this past week, Harang, Leake, Arroyo and Cueto all recorded wins, and didn’t leave it up to late game heroics to ensure a Reds’ win.Duds: Jonny Gomes. It was tough because no one Red had a really bad week. Gomes has only two hits in 15 at-bats over the last six games, though, and he’s a liability in the field as it is.Next Week: The Reds come back home this week as they host a series with the Mets today, and then get a day off before hosting a three-game series against the Cubs. read more

SingleUse BacteriaPowered Paper Battery Could Save Lives

first_img Imagine vacationing somewhere on an isolated island: clear blue water as far as the eye can see, beautiful ancient architecture untouched for hundreds of years, new and exotic foods to try.Now imagine getting sick on an isolated island, where healthcare workers can’t properly diagnose you because they don’t have access to electricity or power sources.It’s easy to take for granted the electrical outlets peppering our homes or the rechargeable batteries filling our pockets. But what seems like fundamentals of modern life are luxuries for people in remote areas of the world.Researchers may have a solution: a new type of battery, made of paper and fueled by bacteria.Presented at Sunday’s 256th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the results quickly captured scientists’ attention.“Paper has unique advantages as a material for biosensors,” study co-author Seokheun Choi said in a statement. “It is inexpensive, disposable, flexible, and has a high surface area.”Disposable paper-based biosensors aren’t exactly new, though: Cheap diagnostic devices have previously relied on such systems. But those tools require color changes to report a result, and often aren’t very responsive.To boost sensitivity, the biosensors need a power supply.“Commercial batteries are too wasteful and expensive, and they can’t be integrated into paper substrates,” Choi explained. “The best solution is a paper-based bio-battery.”In this case, one powered by bacteria.Choi and his colleagues at the State University of New York, Binghamton printed thin layers of metals and other materials onto a paper surface and topped it with freeze-dried “exoelectrogens”—a special type of bacteria that transfers electrons outside of their cells.The electrons, generated when the microbes make energy for themselves, pass through the cell membrane, according to ACS. They can then make contact with external electrodes to power the battery.In early tests, researchers activated the cell using water or saliva (gross), helping to revive the bacteria, which produced enough electrons to power a light-emitting diode and a calculator.The single-use paper battery currently has a shelf-life of about four months; Choi & Co. are working to improve the survival and performance of freeze-dried bacteria.“The power performance also needs to be improved by about 1,000-fold for most practical applications,” he added.Choi has applied for a patent for the battery and is seeking industry partners for commercialization.Battery tech is always a hot topic.

Ag Producer Leader Calls Increased Funding Key to Farm Bill Research Title

first_imgJoseph H. Layton, Jr., a soybean, corn and grape producer on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, emphasized the priority need for increased federal funding for food and agricultural research, extension and education at an oversight hearing convened today by the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation, Credit and Research regarding implementation of the 2008 Farm Bill Research Title. Layton testified as a producer and on behalf of the American Soybean Association (ASA) and the National Coalition for Food and Agricultural Research (National C-FAR), and the USDA National Agricultural Research, Extension, Education and Economics (NAREEE) Advisory Board.”We are all customers—farmers, consumers and, yes, even Congress—who are dependent upon our food and ag research programs for sound answers,” Layton said. “We must seize this historic opportunity to come together in support of increased federal funding for both fundamental and applied research if we are to expect our researchers to provide the science-based outcomes needed to meet multiple challenges we are facing, both known and unknown.”Layton expressed excitement about the vision and leadership that U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Under Secretary Rajiv Shah and newly appointed National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Director Roger Beachy are bringing to USDA’s research mission, pledging that ASA and National C-FAR would work with USDA on the new roadmap to implement Research Title reforms and to work with the Administration and Congress in support of critical increases in funding.Layton pointed out that the Research Title of the 2008 Farm Bill represents the nation’s signature federal investment in the future of the food and agricultural sector, with the success of every other Title in the Farm Bill and those who are charged with carrying out their respective missions dependent in significant part on scientific outcomes and tools generated by research programs.”Research reforms we all support will not work if the USDA research mission remains seriously underfunded,” warned Layton. He said the NAREEE Advisory Board had taken a detailed look at several research areas and had been concerned about the insufficient level of funding in all instances. The ag leader called for increasing funding for the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) to the fully authorized level of $700 million annually as soon as possible, as part of increased funding overall for both extramural and intramural research.National C-FAR (http://www.ncfar.org) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, consensus-based, and customer-led coalition that brings food, agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and natural resource stakeholders together with the food and agriculture research and extension community, serving as a forum and a unified voice in support of sustaining and increasing public investment at the national level in food and agricultural research, extension, and education. Layton is National C-FAR President.ASA (https://soygrowers.com) represents 22,000 producer members on national issues of importance to all U.S. soybean farmers. Layton serves on the ASA Board and represents ASA on the National C-FAR Board.The NAREEE Advisory Board, established by Congress, provides advice to the Secretary of Agriculture, land-grant colleges and universities, and to the Congress on top priorities and policies for food and agricultural research, education, extension and economics. The Board is made up of 25 members, each of which represents a specific category of U.S. agricultural stakeholders.last_img read more

Rohingya brainwashed says Myanmar religion minister

first_imgA house is seen on fire in Gawduthar village, Maungdaw township, in the north of Rakhine state, Myanmar, on 7 September 2017. — Photo: ReutersMyanmar’s minister for religion on Tuesday said Rohingya Muslim refugees living in neighbouring Bangladesh are being “brainwashed” into “marching” on the Buddhist-majority nation, amid a diplomatic feud over the fate of the persecuted minority.More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar’s Rakhine state in the wake of a brutal army crackdown last August, UN agencies say, and are now living in crowded Bangladeshi refugee camps.UN investigators have accused Myanmar soldiers of carrying out mass killings, rapes and burning hundreds of villages with “genocidal intent”. Myanmar denies most of the allegations.Thura Aung Ko said Bangladesh was “not letting them return”, referring to the Rohingya as “Bengalis”, a term commonly used in Myanmar to imply that they are recent interlopers from Bangladesh. Rohingya say they are native to Rakhine state.“If [they] release them, the population will drop,” he said in a video shared by NewsWatch, a news website. “And then, they, at the camps, also feed and brainwash Bengali youths to truly march. They will march on Myanmar. The future goal of those over populated Bengalis is to march on Myanmar.”Plans to repatriate an initial group of 2,260 Rohingya from the camps last month were scuppered after none of the refugees agreed to go back, saying they wanted guarantees of safety and citizenship.Thura Aung Ko, a former general who was appointed to the cabinet by Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi after she came to power in 2016, was expanding on comments he made at the funeral of a prominent monk last week. On 27 November, he expounded on birth rates among members of an unnamed “extreme religion” and the threat it posed to Buddhism in Myanmar.“While we Buddhists practise monogamy and have only one or two children, an extreme religion encourages to have three or four wives and give birth to 15 to 20 children,” he said in a video published by Radio Free Asia. “After three, four, five decades in this Buddhist country, the Buddhist community will certainly become the minority.”On Tuesday, he clarified: “In fact, ‘other religion’ means Bengalis.”San Aung, the chairman of an Islamic society based in Yangon, told Reuters by phone the comments were “very sad”.“As a minister for religion he shouldn’t speak irresponsibly,” he said.last_img read more

Art and its dimension

first_imgVolte’s Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff (Humans Since 1982) will take you through a magical journey with their unique concept of A million times, a kinetic work with 61 clocks put together into one big instillation. Ian andRichard ABell (Based Upon) will allure you with their work inspired by natural and urban landscapes, explorations of archetypal forms, patterns and by the narrative histories woven within a place or group of people. Francesco Clemente’s work Taking Refuge depicts the fulfillment of basic human need for shelter, nomadic yet fashionable tent shows a very different and distinctive approach to art. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Among other recognised Indian artists associated with Volte Art Projects are Ranbir Kaleka, Nalini Malini and Sheba Chhachhi.  Kaleka, will be showcasing his paintings, work on canvas, in oils as well as mixed media, are almost surrealist in their treatment of scenes from everyday life. Nalini Malini’s work is influenced by her experiences as a refugee of the Partition of India. Characteristics of her work have been the gradual movement towards new media, international collaboration and expanding dimensions of the pictorial surface into the surrounding space as ephemeral wall drawing, installation, shadow play, multi projection works and theatre. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAnd lastly, Sheba Chhachhi, photographer and installation artist, her photographic work is predicated on building a relationship with her subjects, the photographs emerging from an invitation to perform the self. The installations address ongoing concerns –the question of transformation, retrieving the marginal and the play between the mythic and social in the context of gender, body, representation, urban ecologies, violence and visual culture. Public art interventions are an important arena for Chhachhi and she has created several onsite works in the city of Delhi over the last few years.Expressing enthusiasm over this year’s artworks, Volte Art Projects’ founder and director, Tushar Jiwarajka said, “This year’s Volte Art Projects is refreshingly significant and I feel greatly honored for being able to expand our country’s art outlook by joining hands with artists who are not only original but also constantly innovating, breaking the conservative approach towards art with their various forms of subtle and bold expressions.”last_img read more

Equipped with powerful gradients, easy-to-use workflow features and the company’s advanced Thermal Management System, the Signa MR750 delivers up to 60 percent additional anatomical coverage and resolution unit per time. The system also allows for up to five times the imaging performance over previous generations, increasing the freedom for advanced application development.Relevant clinical applications include LAVA-Flex, a dual-echo acquisition technique that raises the bar on existing sequences to provide consistent, detailed, three-dimensional abdominal images in one breathhold. In addition, LAVA-Flex produces in one scan four different contrasts, allowing the user to select the output image types – in-phase, opposed-phase, water, and fat. With this new application, clinicians can now conduct a complete liver exam in 15 minutes. LAVA- Flex offers ‘fat only’ and ‘water only’ images in addition to high quality in-phase and opposed-phase images in a single breathhold, a sequence that has quickly become a routine part of all our abdominal sequence protocols at 3.0T, according to Elmar Merkle, M.D., professor of Radiology, Head of Body Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Medical director of the Center for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Development at Duke University.VIBRANT- Flex is a new application that allows for fat-free breast imaging with high spatio-temporal resolution. This application catches the shortest in- and out-of phase echoes to keep scan times comparable to single echo acquisitions, even though twice the amount of data is collected.VIBRANT Flex optimizes acquisition with a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for acquiring high quality water and fat images. This capability lets the user prescribe thinner slices for high spatial resolution imaging.PROPELLER 2.0 enables strong performance in reportedly all imaging planes with the implementation of the No Phase Wrap (NPW) technique. NPW allows virtually ghost-artifact-free, motion-immune scans in sagittal, coronal, axial and oblique planes. Since this technique effectively deals with the aliasing artifact, PROPELLER 2.0 is now more robust performing small field-of-view (FOV) scans.With GE-exclusive 3D SWAN technique, you can capture and delineate small vessels and microbleeds as well as large vascular structures and iron and calcium depositions in the brain. 3D SWAN’s unique, multi-echo acquisition technique and postprocessing algorithm provide wider tissue bandwidth, 2-4 times more SNR and more contrast in a simple to use, robust package within clinically relevant scan times. With such broad clinical properties, 3D SWAN may aid clinicians in diagnosing among others patients with ischaemic and cerebral brain diseases, arteriovenous malformations and neurodegenerative diseases.

Chabad of San Juan Del Sur A Jewish presence in a Nicaraguan

Looking as if she belonged more in Brooklyn, with her modest, long dress and pushing a baby in a carriage, she bought a fruit juice in a definitively New York-accented Spanish, making her stand out even more among the throngs of scantily-clad tourists and surfers. But I of course knew there is a rabbi and his family in this small town along the Pacific Ocean, and that was one of my reasons for visiting.Yet here at this tiny outpost of Judaism, a part of the worldwide Chabad Lubavitcher outreach movement, Israelis and other Jews are made to feel welcomed and at home. That is true even though a huge statue of Jesus Christ towers above the town reminding all that Nicaragua, like other Spanish-speaking countries, is an overwhelmingly Catholic nation. A food cart just up the street from the Chabad House sports a sign saying “Cristo Vive” further adding to the contrast. Rabbi David Atar, left, Rebbetzin Chana Atar, right, and their son, Levy Itzhak. Paul M. Foer/The Tico TimesMaking a homeThe Rebbetzin Chana Atar and her husband, Rabbi David Atar, have not been in Nicaragua for long but have already made their presence known in this once-sleepy town, especially because among the many travelers who flock to the surfer’s paradise are throngs of young Israelis. They, along with a few local Jewish residents, volunteers and tourists, are attracted to the Chabad Center for traditional Jewish food, to speak in Hebrew, celebrate Shabbat and holidays and maybe to get a dose of some religious and liturgical sustenance.The U.S.-born Chana Atar grew up in Israel, while David, an Israeli who studied in France and New York, always wanted to be a shaliach, or rabbi-emissary. They are now making a home for themselves and their 8-month old son, Levy Itzhak, just enjoyed their second wedding anniversary, and opened an already popular kosher falafel shop on the beachfront this past February. They are making plans to build a mikvah, or ritual bathhouse, for cleansing. Of course for now, the lovely bay and beach of San Juan del Sur – just steps from the front door of the Chabad Center – will have to do.The ground floor holds the shtiebel, or religious sanctuary, and the second floor serves as the busy kitchen, dining room and living room of the corner building. Chaim Sand, 23, sat back and relaxed among the chairs and couches overlooking the ocean.“It’s like my house. No, it is my house,” said the handsome, kippah-wearing, Canadian-born Israeli. He was joined by Moishe Dansker, a rabbinical student from Buenos Aires who was working closely with Rabbi and Rebbetzin Atar. Chabad House in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Paul M. Foer/The Tico TimesFar-flung cornersThe Atars, of course, do what most Chabad shaliachs are known to do: They bring a Jewish presence focused on worship, holidays, religious observance and teaching to both major cities and the far-flung corners of the world, such as San Juan del Sur. A two-hour drive from the capital city of Managua and just a short ride to the Costa Rican border, it seems like an unlikely spot even for Chabad, until one sees how many Israelis are passing through.Atar also trained to become a shochet, or ritual slaughterer, so he could prepare kosher chicken, and he even does catering for Jews visiting Managua who request kosher food. But one of his strangest requests for help involved a decidedly un-kosher animal. Late one night, a young woman was stung by a scorpion in a nearby hostel. The first thing she and her hostel friends did was to wake up the rabbi who drove her to a nearby clinic for medical treatment. “You accept anyone and you help them,” said Atar, a Hebrew-speaker who is conversant – though not fluent – in English and has had to learn Spanish. He recalled dealing with what he only described as a “burial assignment” and had to call to friends in Israel to handle the delicate situation.“This place is a center for any Jewish person who needs anything. He or she can get it here. A non-Jewish girl who was beaten was brought here because they knew it would be safe for her,” said the rabbi. Zach Lunin at his real estate office in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Paul M. Foer/The Tico TimesFestive mealsOn a sweltering Friday afternoon, a long table was set as a huge meal was being prepared in the tiny kitchen. The sun was starting to sink over the bay making the view one of the nicest Sabbath settings for any Chabad center.As evening descended quickly – as it does in the tropics – a boisterous crowd of young Israeli backpackers, sprinkled with a couple of U.S. travelers and a Canadian family, arrived to welcome the Sabbath. Along with the blessings, the ritual hand washing, the wine and some superb, fluffy, home-baked challah (bread) came a sumptuous meal of a variety of vegetables, grains and salads, and of course libations, toasts, more wine and singing accompanied by table thumping. Rabbi Atar delivered a talk in Hebrew, and the visiting Canadian woman spoke in English of her local volunteer efforts. The Israelis, almost all in their 20s, talked among themselves, paying no mind or heed to the few English speakers enjoying the Shabbat, self-separated as they were by language and apparently by age.The next morning, the parashah, or Torah portion, was about Moses receiving the Ten Commandments to give to the children of Israel. Thanks to Rabbi and Ms. Atar and Chabad, it was possible for those gathered to obey the commandment to remember the Sabbath and keep it holy. Later that evening, a crowd of 25 again enjoyed another festive meal. After havdalah (the end of the Sabbath), many wandered over to the beachfront food stall Chabad just opened. The Middle-Eastern staple falafel was new to some, yet quite familiar to many of the mostly youthful, surfer crowd who lined up to get fresh and kosher pita-filled treats for as little as $4 each.Among the frequent local visitors to Chabad are Zach Lunin and his family. The Newton, Massachusetts native operates a thriving real estate concern, in no part due to North Americans who are attracted to Nicaragua. He came by way of the University of Maryland, Prague, and then Boston, before moving to León in the northern region of Nicaragua, and then to San Juan del Sur, in 2004. Lunin finds Chabad to be a welcoming place where he can introduce his small children to Jewish tradition, music, prayer and food.

Foer/The Tico TimesSigns of Jewish lifeWhile Chabad, a worldwide Chassidic movement, is making its presence known in San Juan del Sur, there was probably a Jewish presence in Nicaragua – as elsewhere in the Caribbean and Latin America – dating back to the Spanish Inquisition and early days of exploration, although little is known. Some European Jews arrived in the 19th century, mainly centered in Managua, but it wasn’t until the 20th century that their numbers had grown enough to establish a communal presence and synagogue. Because they were generally of the professional or business class, many left when the Sandinistas came to power, although some rose to prominence in the Sandinista regime and government, including Herty Lewites (1939-2006), the late popular mayor of Managua. He went on to challenge Daniel Ortega for the presidency, and there is some speculation that the Sandinistas may have assassinated him. There is also mention of another earlier Jewish mayor named A. Raczkiewsky.Jewish gravestones can be found in Managua, the town of Masaya, and in the former colonial capital and now thriving tourist town of Granada, where there is a Jewish section in the large cemetery with Magen Davids (Jewish stars) adorning walls and gravestones.But there are also signs of Jewish life in Granada, mostly centered around the home and hotel resort of La Fortaleza, owned and operated by Kurt Preiss and his wife, Veronica, a native Nicaraguan. Preiss, who could pass for a Jewish Burl Ives or Santa Claus, was born in Colombia to German immigrants in 1946. His father, a leather merchant, moved the family to Honduras in 1947 and exported kosher meat to the Yishuv, the Jewish community in Palestine-Israel. Preiss received a Jewish education and an AA in agricultural engineering, and came to Nicaragua in 1967 where he operated a leather processing and manufacturing company. He operates a leather goods store in Granada.He and his Nicaraguan wife, Veronica, host Jewish guests, organize Sabbath dinners and holiday receptions from La Fortaleza Granada, the resort villa they own just outside of Granada. Fortaleza has a pool, restaurant and 12 apartments. Their garden displays sculptures with Jewish themes such as a Magen David and Menorah. Inside is a virtual museum of Jewish art and family memorabilia ranging from painting to photographs, documents, seder plates, books and ornaments. Preiss plans to expand the lodging with 34 single rooms and is contemplating bringing Jewish tour groups to Nicaragua. Sabbath dinner at the Preiss home in Granada, Nicaragua. Paul M. Foer/The Tico TimesA stone’s throw from the central park of Granada, Israeli couple Yasmin and David Tzafar operate what is apparently becoming one of the town’s hottest restaurant spots. David had dreams of a restaurant in Israel but said “it’s expensive and complicated,” so through family connections he found his way to Granada and opened Pita Pita. They’ve been serving Mediterranean food and pizza since June 2014 in their restaurant that is now ranked No. 3 out of 112 restaurants reviewed by customers on the website TripAdvisor.Even with its beautiful and peaceful courtyard with lush vegetation, the Tzafars have found that operating a Nicaraguan restaurant has its own set of complications and expenses. David said that finding the right ingredients is “super complicated,” and lamented that a kilo (2.2. pounds) of garbanzo beans that cost a dollar in Israel costs him $4 a pound in Nicaragua. But his hummus and falafel have won praise.“I find that most Nicas actually love Israel and Israelis and Jewish people and get emotional when they meet us,” said Tzafar. The Tzafar family in front of Pita Pita in Granada, Nicaragua. Paul M. Foer/The Tico TimesWhile enjoying a snack with her two small children, Yasmin said, “By definition, we’re not religious. I grew up with a lot of culture around the Jewish holidays, Israeli poets and this is an obvious thing to me,” adding that “almost every day Israelis come through.” She has introduced Jewish holiday celebrations and culture at the school her children attend.Jewish visitors and residents may increase as tourism continues to develop and as more Canadians and travelers from the U.S. flock to the increasingly popular and – for now at least – relatively peaceful and inexpensive tropical destination.For further reading, click here and here.See also: Costa Rican Jews brave hazards, homesickness and Hamas to pursue new lives in Israel Facebook Commentslast_img read more

The Next Gap in Housing Homebuyer Knowledge

first_imgThe Next Gap in Housing: Homebuyer Knowledge Consumer Knowledge Down Payments Homebuyers 2018-06-11 David Wharton June 11, 2018 518 Views Home prices continue escalating in a generally tight U.S. market, which is making half of Americans believe they can’t afford to buy, according to a new report from online bank Laurel Road. However, the report suggests that this fear is largely fueled by a “knowledge gap,” particularly between men and women.The gap refers to the lack of understanding when it comes to financing options. Mostly, this centers on what many buyers find most intimidating about homebuying: the 20 percent down payment.“The down payment is often considered one of the biggest barriers to affordability, but nearly half of Americans are currently unfamiliar with alternative down payment options,” the report states. Similarly, the National Association of Realtors found that, in 2017, the median down payment for first-time buyers was 6 percent.”That made 2017 the third straight year that was true. Still, more than half the respondents of Laurel Road’s survey of college-educated buyers said they plan to put 20 percent down on a home. Another 42 percent said they would have to tap other means of financial assistance.Gender seems to be playing a key role in finding those alternatives. According to the report, while about 25 percent of men said they were unfamiliar with alternatives, half of women said the same thing.“This lack of knowledge around alternative options potentially contributes to the fact that more than one-third of respondents—and 46 percent of millennials—do not feel confident that they could currently afford a 20 percent down payment,” the report found. That feeling is especially prevalent among those with student loan debt.Laurel Road found that a knowledge gap surrounds current interest rates too. The survey revealed that Americans think mortgage interest rates in the U.S. will reach 6 percent by the end of the year, even though the Mortgage Bankers Association expects interest to top out at 4.6 percent. Almost three-quarters of millennials are concerned over higher interest rates, while a third of baby boomers are, according to the report.“Purchasing a home is a life-changing decision, yet despite the range of resources, people often aren’t aware of the personalized options available to fit their specific situation,” said Alyssa Schaefer, CMO of Laurel Road. “By arming future homebuyers with the knowledge and support needed to make an informed and confident decision, we are committed to empowering our customers during the homebuying process. Ultimately, through our research and evolving product set, our mission is to meet our consumers where they need us most, by providing an exceptional experience across each major financial milestone.”center_img in Daily Dose, Featured, journal, Market Studies, News, Origination Sharelast_img read more
