Miami Heat Recovers in Victory Over Washington Wizards

( – It’s too early to panic for the Miami Heat, as they try to stop a two-game slide and even their season record in Sunday’s home matchup with the Washington Wizards at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.The two-time champion Heat opened defense of their title with a win against the Chicago Bulls, then headed to Philadelphia the following night, only to suffer a 114-110 loss. The Heat trailed 19-0 from the jump before rallying to take the lead against the Sixers, but were outscored 15-3 at the end of the game.Miami then faced one of the East’s top teams in Brooklyn on Friday and suffered a 101-100 loss to Paul Pierce and company. Pierce and Joe Johnson scored 19 points apiece and Kevin Garnett had six points and seven rebounds in less than 26 minutes.LeBron James led the Heat with a game-high 26 points, while Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup after resting in Philly to post 21 points. Chris Bosh scored 17 points and Miami shot 47.8 percent for the game, including 7-of-14 from 3-point territory.The Nets, who had an early 11-3 lead, used an 18-2 run to grab a 71-55 cushion with 4:16 remaining in the third quarter. Miami made a valiant effort with a 33-23 advantage in the fourth stanza.“We’ve dealt with this before. This story line continues,” Wade said of the team’s struggles. “At the end of the day, we want to play better. We would love to play better, obviously the start, the first and the third, but we had a chance to win the game. We have to find a way to pull it out.”Brooklyn edged the Heat in rebounds, 40-30. The last time the Heat lost three in a row was  Jan. 10-13, 2011. After consecutive road games, Miami is slated to play five of six in south Florida.Much like the Heat, the Wizards fell victim to the Sixers in Friday’s 109-102 setback at the Verizon Center. The 76ers erased a 12-point deficit in the third quarter and Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams hit a 3-pointer with 6:28 to play to give his team its first lead, which they would never relinquish, and spoil Washington’s home opener.Wizards star John Wall scored 23 points in the first half, but was limited to three over the last 24 minutes.“They scored 65 points in the second half, so we didn’t do a great job of finishing,” said Wall. “It’s embarrassing to lose your home opener when you had a great chance of doing it.”Martell Webster had 13 points off the bench and his 3-pointer with 1:15 to play cut the Sixers lead to just three. Trevor Ariza and Marcin Gortat had 12 points apiece in defeat. No. 3 draft pick Otto Porter remained out for the Wizards because of a right hip flexor injury and is questionable Sunday. Center Nene missed Friday’s game with a strained left calf and could return against the Southeast Division-rival Heat.Philadelphia owned the paint and scored 74 points inside.The Wizards are 0-2 for a fourth straight season and were 0-12 to kick off the 2012-13 campaign. They lost three of four matchups with Miami a year ago and have dropped 15 of the last 19 matchups between the teams.Washington has lost 15 of 19 and 17 of its last 22 at Miami. read more

Des couleurs fluorescentes au fond de locéan les nudibranches mollusques à laspect

first_imgDes couleurs fluorescentes au fond de l’océan : les nudibranches, mollusques à l’aspect exceptionnel, en imagesLes nudibranches sont des mollusques gastéropodes, tout comme les escargots et les limaces. Toutefois, à la différence de ces derniers, ils ne se fondent pas dans le paysage. Bien au contraire, leurs couleurs fluorescentes contrastent avec les abysses de l’océan pour un rendu souvent spectaculaire.En plus de leurs couleurs, ces mollusques ont une forme particulière qui, hormis le fait qu’elle intrigue l’œil humain, permet d’éloigner les prédateurs.À lire aussiUn mollusque cannibale engloutit l’un de ses congénères Les nudibranches sont des animaux hermaphrodites, ils possèdent les organes génitaux des deux sexes. Cependant, ils peuvent rarement se reproduire seuls. Comme les papillons, ces créatures ont une espérance de vie assez faible, avoisinant généralement un an, mais certaines espèces vivent moins d’un mois.Les branchies des nudibranches, comme leur nom l’indique, sont nues. Ces mollusques mesurent de 2,5 cm à 60 cm et vivent dans les eaux salées de toute la surface du globe. Plus de 3.000 espèces de nudibranches ont été recensées à ce jour et de nouvelles sont ajoutées chaque année.Les photographies présentées ont été prises par Debi et David Henshaw, un couple de photographes britanniques alors en excursion en Indonésie puis aux Philippines.

Le H5N1 plus courant et moins dangereux quon ne le pense

first_imgLe H5N1, plus courant et moins dangereux qu’on ne le pense ?Selon une étude américaine, la grippe aviaire, connue pour être une maladie rare, pourrait être plus courante mais moins mortelle qu’on ne le pensait.L’étude qui vient d’être publiée dans la revue Science pourrait atténuer les craintes qu’une éventuelle pandémie de grippe aviaire ne tue des millions de personnes. En effet, des chercheurs de l’école de médecine Mount-Sinai, à New York, ont analysé 20 études internationales qui reposaient sur des tests sanguins effectués sur près de 13.000 participants dans le monde. Ils alors constaté qu’entre 1 et 2% des participants montraient des signes d’une infection passée de la grippe aviaire.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?De tels résultats indiquent que des millions de personnes auraient pu être infectées dans le monde sans savoir qu’ils avaient eu la grippe aviaire. Or, les chiffres officiels de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) font état de seulement 573 cas dans 15 pays depuis 2003 (dont 58,6% des malades sont morts). “Nous suggérons qu’une enquête plus approfondie, menée à une échelle plus large et respectant une approche standardisée, permettrait de mieux estimer le nombre total d’infections H5N1 qui ont touché des humains”, écrivent les auteurs de cette recherche. Pour eux, l’OMS aurait en fait mal appréhendé la maladie en ne s’intéressant qu’aux infections qui ont donné lieu à des hospitalisations et à des symptômes sévères. Évaluer le nombre réel de malades pourraient ainsi s’avérer d’une importance cruciale. Le 24 février 2012 à 13:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more


Les chimpanzés émettraient des cris dalarme pour prévenir leurs proches

first_imgLes chimpanzés émettraient des cris d’alarme pour prévenir leurs prochesUne étude expérimentale menée sur des chimpanzés sauvages d’Ouganda a montré que les cris d’alarme ont leur spécificité propre. Lancés par ces singes en présence d’un danger, loin d’être instinctifs et incontrôlés, ils sont destinés à des individus particuliers du groupe en fonction des circonstances.Une équipe de chercheurs, dirigée par le docteur Katie Slocombe et le docteur Anne Schelling, du Département de psychologie de l’Université d’York (Royaume-Uni), a étudié le comportement de chimpanzés sauvages du site de Sonso, dans la réserve forestière de Budongo, en Ouganda. Face à un prédateur, en l’occurrence, un serpent factice animé, ils ont observé leurs réactions. La structure sociale du groupe de primates était déjà connue des chercheurs.Deux faits ont alors retenu l’attention des scientifiques. Premièrement, les cris d’alarme poussés par les individus ayant aperçu le serpent se poursuivaient jusqu’à ce que tous les membres du groupe soient en sécurité. Deuxièmement, l’avertissement vocal lancé par un individu était plus marqué s’il s’adressait à un individu qui lui était socialement proche, comme un parent ou un ami, explique l’étude publiée dans la revue PLoS ONE. “L’observation des chimpanzés réagissant au faux serpent était intrigante. C’était particulièrement frappant lorsque de nouveaux individus, qui n’avaient pas encore vu le serpent, arrivaient sur les lieux : si un chimpanzé qui, lui, avait vu le serpent, entretenait une amitié étroite avec l’un de ces nouveaux venus, il lançait des cris d’alarme, avertissant son ami du danger. Il semblerait que les chimpanzés destinaient vraiment leurs cris d’alarme à certains individus”, souligne le Dr Schelling.Avertir du dangerÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?L’idée selon laquelle ces cris sont dictés par la seule frayeur et dépourvus d’intentionnalité est donc bien loin, estiment les chercheurs. “Ces comportements indiquent que ces cris d’alarme ont été produits intentionnellement pour avertir les autres du danger. L’étude montre donc une similitude clé entre les mécanismes impliqués dans la production de vocalisations chez les chimpanzés et le langage humain”, explique le Dr Slocombe.”Nos résultats démontrent que certaines vocalisations de nos plus proches parents peuvent être considérés comme des signaux intentionnels, d’une manière directement comparable à beaucoup de gestes des grands singes. Ceci indique que le langage humain peut provenir d’un système de communication multimodal, vocal et gestuel”, conclut la scientifique.Le 19 octobre 2013 à 14:14 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more


Redknapp Ole deserves credit for improving United

first_imgJamie Redknapp praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for improving Manchester United players after suggesting they “downed tools” under the previous manager Jose Mourinho.United continued Solskjaer’s 100% run with the sixth win thanks to Marcus Rashford’s goal before the break.However, Paul Pogba, who provided a brilliant assist for the goal stole the headlines with his display but Redknapp feels all the players have raised their game in recent weeks.“I just think Pogba is enjoying his football. He has freedom, he has a manager that believes in him, but the point is it’s not just Pogba, it’s everybody,” he told Sky.“Pogba is so high profile that he’s the one we focus on, but what about all the other players? What about the goalkeeper [David de Gea] that couldn’t make a save to save his life a while ago, now he looks like the keeper we all knew.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“It’s the same for every player in that United side. They had downed tools for the last manager, whether you like it or not, it was so obvious. I have watched United this season and they have been diabolical for pretty much all of it.“All of a sudden a new manager comes in and they have a bit of freedom and they are enjoying it and Pogba looks like the player from the World Cup.“Ole deserves credit but I don’t think it needed a rocket scientist to go in there and do that. It was purely because the other manager they weren’t keen on and they couldn’t wait for a new manager to come in. He has come in and now they are playing well and playing at the level they should be.“It’s not just about Pogba but I do think he’s a good player who sometimes needs to be told that. I don’t think he’s as confident as he makes out with social media, I think he needs an arm around the shoulder like most good players.”last_img read more


Following Up With PopUp Magazine From the Other Side of the Curtain

first_imgLast month we went behind the scenes of Pop-Up Magazine, to learn more about its origins and business model. In only a few short years, the live experiential magazine has gained traction for its unique brand of storytelling. The touring series has already outgrown its past New York venues—the Town Hall and David Geffen Hall in Manhattan. But it may have already outgrown its newest home in the city after a sold-out show this past Saturday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House.The buzz around Pop-up Magazine, along with its quick growth, makes sense to this reporter, after a raucously entertaining yet thought-provoking evening.The Howard Gilman Opera House is just a block away from the Barclays Center, and it’s a cavernous, gorgeous hunk of history in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. It’s almost nearly double the size of the Town Hall, which is a regular host to many notable music and stage acts. Billed as a live performance of what you’d find in the pages of a magazine, the show even includes elements like an editor’s note from editor-in-chief, Douglas McGray, as well as live native advertisements. And the entire night was given great coherence from the show’s five-piece band, Magik*Magik Orchestra, headed by bandleader/keyboardist Minna Choi.The band backs many of the storytelling sets, as well as all of the integrated advertisements. Many of the acts within the show are accompanied by photos or animated short films. For instances, a piece titled “Let’s Talk About Sax” was performed by writer James Bennett II and was complemented with a saxophone score by Travis Sullivan.Bennett gave a hilarious, albeit abbreviated, timeline of the instrument’s history. From Kenny G tunes to George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” Sullivan was right there with him playing the famous saxophone parts.There were several stories told over the course of the evening that were moving, even borderline gut-wrenching for the audience, but they all had moments of levity or instances that revealed the goodness in humanity.“It’s amazing to be at an event that finds the crossroads between storytelling, technology and music.”Take for example Erin Lee Carr, daughter of the late New York Times’ media columnist David Carr, who spoke of her father and shared some of his retweets from critics after he said that people from Missouri and Kansas have “low, sloping foreheads” on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Or photojournalist Kirsten Luce, who captured images of drug cartel activity on Texas’s border along the Rio Grande, and contrasted that devastation by sharing photos of families playing in the river and farmers bathing their horses. Cathartic moments like those helped the show strike a consistent balance throughout the evening.The most similar experience that Pop-Up Magazine can be compared to would be the live taping of a major podcast. From the attention given to stories to the excitement of hearing live music to the belly laughter at a stand up show—it’s all there. And as I learned after the show when talking to theatergoers (at a jam-packed cocktail mixer in the lobby), they felt like as if they were there with the performers the whole night through.“It’s amazing to be at an event that finds the crossroads between storytelling, technology and music,” said Scott N., a podcast producer in New York.Besides the large HD screen behind the performers, the technology he refers to is also the interactive elements of the show. Rose Eveleth’s act, “Welcome to Vanguard Estates,” was a choose-your-own-adventure that included the entire audience. Together, we all navigated the future of elderly care as many experts are predicting it.In everyone’s program there was a tiny envelope that read “Don’t open me. Yet.” Inside were two tiny glow sticks—one green, one orange. From housing run by robots to seeing a livestream of your aging parents, the entire audience chose how to proceed in this predicted future by raising either glowstick.As with most of the acts, there was loud laughter throughout—this was an incredibly vocal audience. And at the end of the evening, I was hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t enjoy the show or wouldn’t recommend it to a friend. But more impressive was the number of people who said they would come again, or that this was not their first time at a Pop-Up Magazine event—including Scott N., who had been at the previous Town Hall show last year.One couple, Jeff M. and Martin C., local college students, said that they couldn’t wait until the next Pop-Up came to the area.“I absolutely loved it,” said Martin. “This is definitely something that I’d  be excited to go see again.”“We’ve never been to one of these before, but a friend of ours that went to the Town Hall show told us about it and said they loved it,” Jeff added.At a time when much of the magazine industry is looking to events as another revenue stream, Pop-Up Magazine seems to have found a formula that works. Half that formula is something that magazines have been doing for nearly 200 years—telling great stories. The other half is creating a great experience that people want to be a part of.If nothing else, the liveliness of the crowd and the excitement in the air afterwards suggests that Pop-Up Magazine is doing something right.last_img read more


Taborama for Firefox combines Tab Groups with Containers

first_imgTaborama for Firefox combines Tab Groups with Containers by Martin Brinkmann on September 05, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: October 08, 2017 – 12 commentsTaborama is an experimental add-on for the Firefox web browser that combines the use of containers with Tab Groups functionality.Mozilla removed the Tab Groups functionality from the Firefox web browser some time ago. While Firefox users may install extensions such as Tab Groups or Simplified Tab Groups to reintroduce the functionality in the browser, at least some of these extensions will stop functioning once Firefox 57 gets released.Mozilla plans to cut support for legacy add-ons in Firefox 57; this means that any extension that is not compatible with the WebExtensions standard by then, will cease to work in Firefox.Update: Taborama has been renamed to Conex.TaboramaTaborama is a WebExtension. This means that it is compatible with Firefox 57 and future versions of the web browser. In fact, it can only be installed in Firefox 57 right now.The extension brings back tab grouping functionality, and combines it with Firefox’s own Containers feature. First launched as a Test Pilot experiment, Containers will become a native Firefox feature.Containers separate open sites and services from each other to improve accessibility and privacy.The combination of Tab Groups with Containers makes sense if you think about it. Tab Groups provide you with options to sort tabs into groups and work with just one group of them. Containers group tabs as well making it a natural fit.The extension is not fully usable yet. That’s not the developer’s fault though as the API to show and hide tabs has not been made available yet.While you may use Taborama right now in Firefox 57, you cannot use it to only display a tab group in the browser’s interface at this point in time. As soon as Mozilla implements the API, the functionality will become available however.The extension adds an icon to the Firefox address bar that displays all containers. A search is provided to find sites of interest quickly, but you may also click on any container to list the sites it contains.Sites are listed with a thumbnail icon, the page title, and the address. A click jumps to the selected site in the browser.The search lists matching sites that are open in Firefox, but also sites found in the browsing history making it a tad more useful.VerdictTaborama is a promising add-on for the Firefox web browser. While its true functionality is not there yet, its author seems to be very active so that it seems likely that it will be added once Mozilla adds the required API.Now You: Tab Groups, Containers, how do you manage tabs?Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 9 votes Software Name ConexSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more


Former Chinese propaganda chief Ding Guangen dies

first_imgBEIJING (AP) – Ding Guangen, a former chief of propaganda for the ruling Communist Party who oversaw party control of media and the arts in the 1990s, has died at age 83.Ding, who retired in 2002 after a decade as propaganda chief, died Sunday of an unspecified illness in Beijing, the official Xinhua News Agency said.Born in 1929, Ding spent the early decades of his career in government maritime and railway agencies. Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   He became minister of railways in the 1980s but resigned in 1988 after a series of train crashes that killed scores of people. He later was head of the Cabinet’s Taiwan Affairs Office and the party’s United Front Work Department, which oversees China’s noncommunist organizations.Ding returned to prominence in 1992, becoming the party’s chief of propaganda under then-President Jiang Zemin. Seen as a conservative, he affirmed party control of media and called on artists to show political loyalty and adhere to the party line.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Superman to The Fonz Vintage lunchbox collection

first_imgSuperman to The Fonz: Vintage lunchbox collection on sale by Dan Sewell, The Associated Press Posted Sep 28, 2018 7:29 am PDT Last Updated Sep 28, 2018 at 7:41 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CINCINNATI – Look, up on the shelf! It’s Superman. There’s the king of the wild frontier himself, Davy Crockett. And over in that case is Davy Crockett again, except this time he’s Daniel Boone (we’ll explain later). And aaaaay! It’s The Fonz and the whole “Happy Days” family!A veteran auctioneer has on display a baby boomer delight: hundreds of vintage lunchboxes featuring the heroes of their childhood comic books, TV shows, cartoon strips, movies and more.“I’ve never had anything like this,” said J. Louis Karp, whose family-run business has been part of Cincinnati since the first years after the Civil War. “This is quite different.”Sure, you can go to any number of websites to buy old metal lunchboxes from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. But to see 250 of them in the same place, to be able to pick them up, and then spot one just like mom packed for you with a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich in the first grade. …But back to the auction.Karp regularly sells large estates loaded with rare artwork, antique furniture and collectibles. He has sold vintage lunchboxes before, but never so many. The private collection’s proceeds will benefit younger generations of the owner’s family.Weldon Adams, a collectibles expert for Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, viewed the lunchboxes online and said such a large, eclectic sale is a rarity.“We’ve seen some sizable collections,” said Adams. “Having all of them show up at one time is truly an impressive thing.”Younger people who like kitsch are among lunchbox buyers, Adams said, but they are particularly attractive to those who carried them as children because they are a powerful link “back to our identities of who we were as a child.”Karp has 250 for an auction ending Sept. 30. There are another 200 he’s planning to auction before the Christmas holidays.There are lunchboxes with the late actor Fess Parker, who played Crockett and Boone in separate TV series. There is “The Brady Bunch” and “The Partridge Family.” ”The Addams Family” and “The Munsters.” ”Nancy Drew” and “The Hardy Boys.” The Bee Gees and Bobby Sherman.There are lesser-known ones: “Korg 70,000 B.C.” ”The Guns of Will Sonnett.” ”Goober and the Ghost Chasers.”Adams said a “wonderfully obscure” one he noticed was from “Here Come The Double Deckers,” a British children’s TV show. Another is from “Fireball XL5,” an early 1960s children’s science fiction show with a fan cult.“I’m stunned at the breadth of it,” Adams said of the collection.Bids start at $20 each. Karp shouted upstairs to son Justin, who with his brother Jonas marks the fifth generation of Karps in the auction business, to ask how much different lunchboxes have sold for online.“Lost In Space” TV series and “The Flintstones” animated series? $225 each.“How about Popeye?”“Who’s with Popeye?”“Olive Oyl, Brutus …”“Are they in a boat?”“Yes, fishing.”“$190.”Unfortunately, Karp said, many of the lunchboxes lack the Thermos beverage bottles that originally came with them. Those without could draw lower bids.Karp, 71, reluctantly allowed his sons to bring his auctions into the internet age, and the business takes bids online from anywhere, and by email and phone. But he still enjoys his showroom-floor auctions, seeing the competitors watching one another, and the winners who finally emerge after rounds of tense bidding.And this Sunday, he might just see some with tears in their eyes.___This story has been clarified to show that Thermos beverage bottles are a brand.___Cincinnati correspondent Dan Sewell’s first lunchbox was “Wagon Train,” but his favourite was “Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.” Follow him at read more

standard administrative leave as was Mooers All returned to duty once clearedThe Rice Farmers’ Association of Nigeria (RIFAN) has commended the Cross River State Governor Ben Ayade for his efforts towards making Nigeria self sufficient in the production of rice Leadership of RIFAN made the remark after being conducted round the rice seedling plant and other supporting facilities at the Ayade Industrial Park by the governor in Calabar the state capital National Vice President of the association Segun Atto who led the delegation to the seedling plant said: “What we have seen so far is very incredible because this is the first time I am seeing this type of thing in the whole country” According to him “We are so impressed with what we are seeing here today When we were invited to come and witness what is going to happen here we never envisaged seeing this kind of facilities but in my short comment I want them to keep it up for other state to emulate” Speaking on how the association tend to partner with the state government Atto said “In terms of partnership with the state we have a lot of areas to benefit from each other The first benefit is that whatever seed they are producing here we are ready to partner them and we will take some of them for our own multiplication so that it can be circulated around the country “We will also like to ensure that whatever they produce they should make it agro-ecological production so that each section of the country will know which type of rice they will cultivate in future “We are also going to tell others that this is what we have seen here in Cross River State and we want it to go on like that because if we have this type of thing like two or three in other state I think Nigeria with 198 million population will survive the hunger situation including Africa” On his part the Vice President North West Muhammed who hinted that about 60 percent of rice consumed in the country was currently being produced by them stated: “With what I am seeing here and if this industry is sustained the benefits will be great not only for Cross River State but Nigeria at large” While urging the Federal Government to take a cue and replicate such centers across the country Muhammed stated that “I don’t want Cross River State to see this as their own it’s a national thing because hunger has no boundary and with this multiplication with quality seeds you must have a very high yield and when you have a high yield you have enough to feed yourselves the country and enough to export” Commenting on the vitanimised rice which the plant will be rolling out soon Mohammed noted: “What we have here in Cross River is good because it has the right nutrient content and it is disease resistance which is far higher than what we currently have in the market All we need to do is multiply and produce as much as possible across the country” He further added that “With what we have here I am confident that even if there is hunger anywhere in the world there won’t be hunger in Nigeria” National Secretary on milling and processing RIFAN Alhaji Idris Isa who was overwhelmed by the sophistication of the facility pointed out that “From what I am seeing in Cross River I am relocating from Katsina to set up my farm here in Calabar because all I need to support my rice farming is right her at the door step and we are happy that this is actually real and is happening here in Nigeria” I will advise other states to copy right what Cross River is doing because it will definite boost the rice value chain initiative of the Federal Government and make the country food sufficient as envisioned by Mr President” Also speaking the National Secretary RIFAN Mr Livinus Ngwuanu maintained that the state was moving in the right direction as according to him what Governor Ayade has put in place is in line with what is in operation in advanced countries where there is sustainable and enhanced rice production “Most of these countries with high population density are the greatest producers of rice and these are the methods they used in achieving that I was surprised to see such modern equipment in Calabar fully installed and waiting to be used for seed production which is basic in rice cultivation all over the world “It is a good foundation because once you get a sound seed you will be sure of high yield which in turn will bring about high revenue in a mechanized form It makes farming attractive and interesting to the young ones who will love to mount these machines that are fully air conditioned “I sincerely commend Governor Ayade for this vision because this is what we need in Nigeria and when we go back to Abuja we shall tell others about the good news and we will surely visit here again” Three persons were on Wednesday killed in Bawan Daji village at Anka Local Government Area of Zamfara state The Command’s Spokesman DSP Mohammed Shehu confirmed this to newsmen in Gusau He said that the killing was perpetrated by gunmen who came in large numbers and attacked the village in the early hours of Wednesday shooting sporadically “The villagers who were taken unawares were quick to alert a nearby mobile police patrol team which came and engaged the bandits in a gun battle “The policemen overpowered the bandits even as many of them escaped with gunshot wounds” Shehu said He however urged members of the public to be on alert to report to the nearest authority anyone seen with bullet wounds and seeking medical attention Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has called on Nigerians to stop consuming imported rice better known as foreign rice urging them to return to the pre-1980 era when indigenous rice was served only during festive periods Aregbesola who also advised Nigerians to embrace family planning argued that when the consumption of imported rice is stopped and the number of children given birth to by each couple is limited then would poverty be eradicated from the country He stated this in Osogbo the state capital yesterday at an event organised by the Osun State Agency for Community and Social Development to mark the 2016 International Day for Eradication of Poverty “If we work and pray we will banish poverty from our environment Rice was not a staple food in Nigeria before 1980 Ofada rice was the only rice eaten during festivities We should return to the time when we were eating indigenous rice “We have cassava plantain beans and yam We should return to the time when we were eating our indigenous foods “Secondly we should embrace family planning I am not asking you to kill the ones you have given birth to but we should stop the erroneous belief that we would be sick if we don’t give birth to all the children in our body” he said The governor also pointed out that since laziness was a factor that engendered poverty every adult should strive to be productively engaged especially in the agriculture sector to ensure an abundant availability of food The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Chief Audu Ogbeh had announced that the price of rice would start to fall from November this year adding that his ministry would not encourage rice importation because it would be detrimental to local production 2017.
