first_img Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement:“Today is a sad day for the commonwealth and the people of Pennsylvania. Attorney General Kane has been convicted of serious charges. These are unbecoming of the commonwealth’s top law enforcement officer.“As I have made clear, I do not believe Kathleen Kane should be Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I believed this when she was charged, and today, after conviction, there should be no question that she should resign immediately.“While there is no simple procedure to remove a civil officer, the Office of Attorney General and its employees, as well as the people of Pennsylvania, deserve to move on. I implore Attorney General Kane to do what is right: put the commonwealth’s residents first and step down from office.” August 15, 2016 Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Statement on Attorney General Kanecenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter   SHARE  TWEETlast_img read more

first_imgDanish pensions and insurance lobby group Insurance and Pensions Denmark (IPD) has taken issue with the way ATP backed up its assertion yesterday that in Denmark, pension “free riders” ended up with more disposal income over a lifetime.The industry group said in a statement that the pension fund “had a point” with its calculation examples of how pension offsetting worked in practice, but it said failing to save up for a pension at all was not an advantage.IPD gave several reasons why the DKK918bn (€123bn) statutory pension fund’s calculations were not representative, saying that among other things, its main example assumed a very low-risk investment profile for the model pension saver.Jan Hansen, IPD’s deputy director said: “ATP has chosen a very conservative investment strategy: 3/4 bonds and 1/4 shares throughout the savings and disbursement process.” A typical medium-risk profile from a Danish pension firm for a young saver began with 3/4 shares, he said, a proportion which was then gradually reduced to 1/3 by retirement, adding that this was significant since equities were expected to produce higher returns than bonds.Hansen said ATP had also picked a person who had been in the labour market for 50 years as its example, whereas the government’s recent unveiling of its early retirement proposal had shown that only around 40-50,000 people had worked for over 41 years.“Very few are in the labour market for 50 years. And virtually none of them have saved so little up for retirement that they qualify for a full seniors’ cheque [a lump sum for Danes who have little or no income in addition to the state pension],” he said.Given a more realistic investment profile with an increased equity weighting, IPD said ATP’s “negative picture” would be transformed into a small profit of just over DKK80,000.It also said the two people in ATP’s examples would end up with markedly different outcomes in terms of pension coverage, with the “free-rider” receiving around 60% of salary coverage, and the pension saver receiving nearly 100% of their salary.Like ATP, IPD also concluded its statement with suggestions about the remit of the newly-established Pension Commission.Hansen argued that the commission needed to examine whether the incentive to save up for retirement was good enough – both over the entire savings process and in the years before the state pension age.“A few years ago, politicians took big steps in the right direction by introducing old-age savings [aldersopsparing] and extra pension deductions. But we are not quite there,” he said.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here.last_img read more

New Zealand will play India in their first warm-up game. New Zealand will play its first league game against Sri Lanka. India will play its first league game against South Africa on June 5.  Dubai: New Zealand middle-order batsman Ross Taylor Tuesday said playing a warm-up match against “favourites” India will help his side prepare well for the World Cup beginning May 31. New Zealand will play warm-up games against India and West Indies on May 25 and 28 respectively, before beginning their campaign against Sri Lanka in Cardiff on June 1.”The game against India on the 25th would be a great preparation. They are one of the stronger sides and are favourites going into the tournament. It will be good for us to go out there and have a good hit out as a team,” Taylor was quoted as saying by the ICC.For the World Cup, the ICC has reverted to the 1992 round robin format where all 10 sides will play each other with the top four teams qualifying for the semifinals. The 35-year-old was all praise for the format and called it exciting and fair. “The format, with everyone playing everybody, similar to the 1992 World Cup, is pretty exciting and a pretty fair reflection, I think. If you see at World Cups going around in all major sports, it’s more of a pool-type scenario.”Asked about the batting-friendly conditions in England, Taylor said it is the mindset that matters and a team should be prepared for all conditions.”You don’t have to go too far back to the Champions Trophy, when a lot of people talked about big scores and there weren’t a lot at that tournament,” Taylor said.”You’ve just got to be flexible, there will be times when the bowlers dominate and the batters will dominate as well. You’ve got to be prepared for anything and adapt accordingly,” he added.Participating in his fourth World Cup, Taylor advised the younger players to enjoy the tournament.”It’s a pretty cool event to be a part of and there’s going to be a lot of ups and downs. If you enjoy yourself to the best, you’ll probably play your best as well,” he said. highlightslast_img read more

first_imgCHENNAI, India (Reuters) – Hardik Pandya’s all-round brilliance and some excellent bowling by the Indian spinners secured a 26-run victory against Australia under the Duckworth-Lewis method in the rain-hit first one-day international on Sunday.Pandya struck a career-best 83 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 79 to help the hosts overcome a top-order collapse and post 281-7 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.However, a lengthy mid-innings rain break left Australia needing 164 runs in 21 overs to go 1-0 up in the five-match series.Glenn Maxwell smashed 39 and James Faulkner made 32 not out but Pandya (2-28) and India’s spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal (3-30) and Kuldeep Yadav (2-33) combined to restrict Australia to 137-9.Earlier, home captain Virat Kohli’s decision to bat appeared to backfire when Nathan Coulter-Nile’s three-wicket burst reduced India to 11-3 inside six overs.Kedar Jadhav and Rohit Sharma then added 53 runs for the fourth wicket to arrest the slide.Jadhav lived dangerously to score his 40, while Sharma made 28 before both fell to Marcus Stoinis, leaving India reeling at 87-7 in the 22nd over.A 200-plus score looked a distant dream for the hosts at that stage but Pandya and Dhoni had other ideas.Pandya clobbered Adam Zampa for three successive sixes in a 24-run over, bringing up his fifty off 48 balls in the process.The all-rounder blasted five sixes and as many fours in his 66-ball blitz before falling to the leg-spinner.Dhoni, who took 67 balls to score his first boundary, accelerated towards the end and raised 72 runs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar who scored 32 not out.Australia wobbled early in their chase as Jasprit Bumrah bowled Hilton Cartwright and then took a swirling skyer to dismiss rival skipper Steve Smith.Yadav dismissed David Warner for 25 but Maxwell looked in murderous mood as he clobbered the left-arm wristspinner for three successive sixes.Chahal ended Maxwell’s 18-ball blitz and went on to claim two more wickets as India triumphed despite dropping three catches which could have cost them dearly in such a small chase.Eden Gardens in Kolkata will host the second one-dayer on Thursday.INDIA InningsA.

The Orange suffered in the low post without Melo, and fell to Ohio State in the Elite Eight. Now, the 7-foot, 255-pound center is trying to impress NBA teams, and could be a mid- to late-first round draft pick on June 28.Melo worked out for the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, where he spoke to reporters.“It was academic,” Melo said, according to the AP. “They ask, I explain (what) happened – that I came from another country four years ago and didn’t even speak English.”The center put academics and college in the past on April 5, when he declared for the NBA Draft. Melo averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in 30 games for Syracuse, and led the Big East in blocks per game with 2.9.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMelo had a turbulent two seasons with the Orange. He became a dominant inside presence only after suffering a subpar freshman year where his lack of fitness precluded him from staying on the court. He lost 30 pounds heading into the sophomore season and looked like a completely different player.In fewer than 10 days, an NBA team will be hoping he can continue that type of production in the pro ranks.cjiseman@syr.edu Comments Related Stories MBB : Syracuse center Melo ineligible, will not play in NCAA TournamentMBB : Syracuse center Melo announces decision to enter NBA Draftcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgBack for first · One of 16 males to compete for the Trojans, Corey White will throw the javelin, where he finished runner-up last season. – Brandon Hui | Summer Trojan All of the USC track team’s efforts have certainly paid off, earning members a long list of accomplishments in the last few months — but their  hard work is not yet over. The NCAA Championships begin Wednesday in Fayetteville, Ark., and the team has a long road ahead of them.This week has been met with some success already as the track tream is getting ready for the biggest meet of the year. Ron Allice, director of track and field for USC, was named the West Regional Men’s Head Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Monday, which happened just days after Allice helped take the team to the fourth West Regional win in the last five years. Beginning their journey early Sunday morning (and experiencing a few minor luggage setbacks), they departed from the Los Angeles International Airport and reached their Arkansas destination later that evening. After a night of rest and relaxation, the Trojans began to practice Monday afternoon in an effort to fine-tune technique and get their minds prepared.With 13 female and 16 male individual athletes and four relay teams ready to compete, USC enters the championships with a large variety of talent in many different areas of the sport, and since the only way to qualify for this competition was to place in the top five of the regional (top three in the relays), the team has proved its grit.Allice explained earlier this season that the team was not planning on focusing on any particular area of its technique prior to the meet, but just maintaining focus on the skills it has already accumulated throughout the season.Both the men and women’s teams have used those skills to land themselves a No. 7 ranking, according to the final USTFCCCA scores, and they’re hoping to shoot up the ranks this week. USC just outran the No. 2 team, Oregon, in the West Regional, a feat that has them optimistic about this week’s final meet. The top 10 teams for men going into this meet are: Texas A&M, Oregon, Florida, Arkansas, LMU, South Carolina, USC, Stanford, Nebraska and Arizona State; while the women’s top then are: Texas A&M, Oregon, LSU, Arizona State, Tennessee, Florida State, USC, Penn State, Baylor, and Texas.CBS will be televising the last day of the championship (June 13) from 10 a.m. to noon and will air the next-to-last day events on the 12th on CBS College Sports beginning at 4 p.m.last_img read more
