first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago Red Force were propelled by Jeremy Solozano’s maiden first-class hundred, but Jamaica Scorpions were making a strong reply on the second day of their Regional First Class Championship here yesterday.Solozano, in his first outing of the championship, hit 110 to help lift Red Force to 271 in their first innings, after the hosts resumed on 145 for five at Queen’s Park Oval. Wicketkeeper Steven Katwaroo struck 45, while tail-ender Marlon Richards chimed in with 26.Seamer David Bernard Jr picked up three for 25 to spearhead the Scorpions attack.Scorpions then lost John Campbell for two to the eighth ball of the innings with the score on three, but recovered to reach 119 for three at the close.Andre McCarthy was leading the fightback on 49 and was partnered by former skipper Tamar Lambert on 12.Captain Paul Palmer made 35, his first double figure score in five innings this season.Rookie seamer Daniel St Clair struck a crucial blow before tea when he had the left-handed Campbell caught at the wicket.Palmer and Barbadian Kirk Edwards, who scored 19, then repaired the innings in a 43-run, second-wicket stand, taking the visitors to the break at 36 for one.The right-handed Edwards perished in the sixth over after tea, lbw to off-spinner Narsingh Deonarine, but Palmer combined with McCarthy to add 27 for the third wicket.Palmer, whose previous innings yielded nine runs, faced 70 balls in nearly 1-3/4 hours at the crease and stroked five fours before going bowled by leg-spinner Imran Khan.Any thoughts Red Force had of making further inroads were quickly dashed as McCarthy and Lambert, in his 97th first-class match, came together to see Scorpions safely to the close in an unbroken fourth-wicket partnership worth 46.The right-handed McCarthy has struck seven fours in a breezy 66-ball knock, while Lambert has batted just over an hour and counted two boundaries.Volcanoes beat HurricanesAT WINDSOR PARK: Windward Islands Volcanoes defeated Leeward Islands Hurricanes by eight wickets on the second day of their third-round game here yesterday.Scores: HURRICANES 24 for seven declared.

first_img That includes candles, which account for roughly $2 billion of the total market, as well as air fresheners, diffusers, aromatherapy products and scented rocks, considered the next generation of potpourri. That’s not to mention ScentPods, stick scents, flameless candles and “scent stories.” Sniff again: That’s the match lit under the home-fragrance market. The industry owes its transformation in the past 15 years in large part to Harry Slatkin, New York City-based home-design president of Limited Brands Ltd. and founder of Slatkin and Co. Slatkin’s name is linked to new scents for candles, higher-end oils and room sprays with the cachet of the Hollywood celebrity, socialite and even British royalty. He’s managed to enhance his products’ aura of luxury, style and links with charitable giving, while still maintaining relatively affordable prices: A high-end line starts around $28 at Nieman-Marcus, with other candles and $10 “scent ports” at Bath & Body Works. Smell that? There’s something expensive in the air. The humble air freshener has been outclassed by a new breed of designer- and celebrity-inspired scented candles, scent sticks and diffusers. And they don’t come cheap. Juicy Couture is offering a scented candle in a goblet for $350. Jo Malone’s “living cologne” spray costs $95. Bond No. 9 has a “Wall Street” candle for $78. With so much scent wafting about, American consumers are putting their money where their nose is. They are sniffing out chic combinations such as bergamot tea, jasmine, amber and musk – and spending an estimated $9 billion in the home-fragrance market. “Male, female, doesn’t matter the age. … Everyone uses home fragrance now,” Slatkin said in a phone interview from Paris. “It’s to create pleasure for yourself. It doesn’t matter what your home looks like or whether you did the dishes, but when you light a candle, it instantly turns on a different ambience, and it changes your mood.” When it comes to candles, buyers are led by the nose. About 80 percent of all candles sold in the United States are cented. Nearly half of all American women say they use candles to decorate and refresh their homes. These days, they’ve got a dizzying array of choices. There’s a growing market for “premium” candles, and the airwaves are also flooded with ads for home fresheners with mass market appeal, including Glade and Febreze products. But the biggest innovations have been in electronic and eco-friendly categories. Flameless candles run on batteries,. Sleek “scent ports” plug in to electrical outlets. Soy and beeswax candles from renewable resources are gaining popularity, as are nonburning scent diffusers, which use sticks to disperse the scent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgSix stories in the news for Monday, May 13———EASTERN ONTARIO REELING FROM OTTAWA RIVER FLOODINGWith more rain forecast for early this week there are concerns the flooding situation along the Ottawa River could still get worse before it improves. Armed Forces personnel have been working to try to save homes in eastern Ontario communities that have declared states of emergency due to historic water levels in some areas. They’re helping with sand bagging and other flood mitigation operations. Laurentian Valley, along with Pembroke and Ottawa have all declared states of emergency as water levels along the Ottawa River rise.———CENTRAL B.C. WILDFIRE PROMPTS EVACUATIONSWildfire crews in the B-C Interior are looking ahead to another day of battling two fires — one east of Fraser Lake and the other east of Kamloops. The Fraser Lake area blaze is by far the biggest. It grew from just a few hectares to about 250 hectares within a matter of hours on Saturday. A local state of emergency was declared Saturday night and people were ordered to leave an area near the community of Lejac, about five kilometres east of Fraser Lake. However, the order was rescinded last night. The B-C Wildfire Service said the fire was 70 per cent guarded but zero per cent contained. About half of B.C. is under a “high” fire danger alert.———NDP CLIMATE PLAN TO SLASH EMISSIONS IN HALFThe federal N-D-P is pledging to cut Canada’s emissions almost in half over the next decade. The pledge is part of a climate change motion the party is expected to introduce in the House of Commons today. New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh says the motion forms the broad strokes of his climate change action platform for the fall federal action. It includes a promise to slash emissions in line with what the United Nations recommends, which would mean they’d have to be close to half of what they are now. The N-D-P would also eliminate federal aid for the fossil fuel industry, and slam the door on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.———OPPOSITION FORCE EMERGENCY MEETING OF DEFENCE COMMITTEE ON NORMAN AFFAIRThree Conservative and one New Democrat MP are requesting the House of Commons national defence committee be reconvened to examine the government’s conduct in the investigation and prosecution of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman. Norman was the second-in-command of Canada’s military before he was suspended and then charged with breach of trust over alleged leaks of secret information about a navy shipbuilding contract. Federal prosecutors stayed the charges on Wednesday, saying they had no reasonable prospect of getting a conviction.———POLITICIANS SEEK TO ENHANCE NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR’S APPEALPoliticians have stressed the need to make Newfoundland and Labrador an appealing place for young people as the province’s May 16th election date draws near. But newcomers say there’s still a lot of work to be done to convince people to stay. Kerri Neil researches sociology and immigration at Memorial University and says the poor economy and high unemployment are key factors driving people of all backgrounds to move away.  Neil adds that the threat of rising power rates, high taxes and stagnant wages have made the problem worse.———DIGITALLY MINING QUEBEC’S FUTUREBitfarms’ machines are solving math problems in order to collect or mine Bitcoin, the world’s most famous digital currency. Companies have sprouted all over the world in an attempt to cash in on the cryptocurrency industry. But Bitfarms stands out. The Montreal-area company is trying to set itself apart as much by its infrastructure and vertically integrated business model as for its attempt to reduce the social stigma associated with the industry’s voracious energy usage. Since its inception in 2017, Bitfarms has been rushing to retrofit factories in Quebec regions emptied out by the decline of the province’s manufacturing industries.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— NDP unveil plan to make web giants like Netflix and Facebook pay their fair share of taxes.— Gov.-Gen.
