Staples to speed up closure of about 15 US stores plans to

by The Associated Press Posted Sep 25, 2012 5:57 pm MDT FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Staples is speeding up the closure of about 15 of its U.S. stores and plans to close 45 stores and some delivery businesses in Europe.The office products company also says it will invest more in its online and mobile efforts and will expand the product assortment that it offers to its business customers.The announcement didn’t include any closures in Canada.Staples Inc. said Tuesday that these moves and other actions are part of a strategic plan to better serve customers’ needs and accelerate growth.Staples is trying to adapt to the evolving needs of its customers. Last month the company reported that its second-quarter net income fell as sales of computers, software, and basic office supplies softened. Computer sales have been pressured by the introduction to many offices of the computer tablet and other mobile devices. Traffic is also down at Staples’ stores and Europe continues to be a weak spot.The chain expects the U.S. store closings will result in a charge of about $35 million in the fourth quarter. For fiscal 2012, it anticipates about 30 U.S. store closings. Staples also expects 30 stores will be scaled down and stores being relocated.In Europe, the store closures are expected to occur before the end of fiscal 2012. The company has also tapped John Wilson to serve as president of Staples Europe. Wilson succeeds Rob Vale, who is retiring.The retailer says its U.S. retail and online businesses will now be run by Demos Parneros. Joe Doody will continue to lead the North American contract and businesses, and will assume leadership of supply chain and customer service operations in North America.Staples expects its actions to result in charges of $145 million to $195 million by the end of fiscal 2012. It also foresees a third-quarter goodwill impairment charge of $790 million to $850 million within its European retail and catalogue businesses.The company says it is still looking into additional operational and strategic opportunities for its European operations, which includes the potential sale of its European printing systems business. It anticipates taking a third-quarter charge of $15 million to $20 million as it classifies the European printing systems business as discontinued operations.The chain will also take a charge of $20 million by fiscal 2012’s end as it rebrands its Australian business.The Framingham, Mass., company anticipates annual savings of about $250 million by the end of fiscal 2015.Staples’s stock fell 55 cents, or 4.5 per cent, to close at $11.80 Tuesday. Its shares hit a 52-week low of $10.57 in late August and peaked for the year at $16.93 in March.The company has stores in 26 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Ohio State womens soccer ready for tilt with Indiana Hoosiers

Senior goalkeeper Rachel Middleman takes a free kick during a match against Illinios Sept. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The teams tied, 1-1.Credit: Michele Theodore / Copy chiefComing off a 1-1 draw against Illinois in its last match, the Ohio State women’s soccer team is set to host undefeated Indiana.Thursday afternoon’s match will be the second Big Ten game for the Buckeyes this season. OSU players said they notice a change in play when it comes to conference games.“It’s just a whole different ball game. The girls are so physical, and so feisty, bigger actually, physically bigger than the other teams we play,” sophomore goalkeeper Jillian McVicker said.McVicker and senior Rachel Middleman have split time in goal almost evenly this season. In nine games this year, The Buckeyes have only allowed six goals between them. The 0.67 goals against average is good enough for third best in the conference, tied with Iowa.“I feel like we both compliment each other and the team really well,” McVicker said of the goalies splitting time.Freshman forward Nichelle Prince leads the Buckeye offense this year scoring five goals while recording four assists. The 14 points for the first-year Buckeye has her tied for 10th in the Big Ten.“She’s definitely a strong player up top, has amazing touch and super fast,” said freshman forward Lindsay Agnew of Prince. “Her presence on the field kind of calms people down, and any goal could happen any second.”Prince, originally from Ajax, Ontario, said she is still adjusting to her role with the Buckeyes.“It’s new coming into a new environment, but the players have been really open to helping us,” Prince said. “We have a decent start right now and a lot more games to do well.”On offense, the Buckeyes have been working hard to improve on their ability to finish.“We really focused on our final passes, because we have a lot of opportunities in games, but the final pass and the final shot are a little off sometimes. We’ve just been working on a lot of patterns to capitalize that,” McVicker said.Indiana is 8-0-1 on the season, and the Hoosiers have only allowed two goals so far. Those figures, however, have not changed the practices for the Buckeyes this week.“We usually just practice the same, and adjust a few things depending on the opponent,” Prince said.Senior midfielder Lisa Nouanesengsy leads the Hoosiers in scoring with six goals. Indiana averages 2.33 goals a match, good for sixth best in the conference.The match is set to begin at 3 p.m. Thursday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Jabulani le ballon de la Coupe du Monde seraitil trop parfait

first_imgJabulani : le ballon de la Coupe du Monde serait-il trop parfait ?Afrique du Sud – Jabulani, ou la pomme de discorde entre les ingénieurs et les footballeurs. Le ballon au nom exotique, conçu spécialement pour la Coupe du Monde, serait en effet “trop parfait”, ce qui le rendrait assez imprévisible sur sol rugueux selon les témoignages de footballeurs. Un ballon de football est en principe constitué de trente-deux pièces (vingt hexagones et douze pentagones), alors que pour le Jabulani d’Adidas, seuls huit éléments sont assemblés grâce à une technique de soudage thermique.Malheureusement, cette nouveauté ne fait pas l’unanimité. La stabilité, la résistance et la précision du ballon sont remises en cause par les simulations informatiques du professeur Derek Leinweber de l’université d’Adélaïde (Australie). Pour lui, le ballon va plus vite que les autres et subit plus de déformations.Les gardiens de buts sont les plus mal logés : la texture “Grip n groove” rend les trajectoires de l’objet assez hasardeuses et empêche toute anticipation des mouvements du ballon. L’Anglais David James qualifie d’ailleurs ce dernier de “pourri”, tandis que l’attaquant brésilien Luís Fabiano le trouve “surnaturel”. Espérons qu’Adidas trouve rapidement une solution.

Kuskokwim 300 to Run as 12Dog Race

first_imgThe Kuskowkim 300 Sled Dog race is now a 12-dog event. The race committee decided this fall to lower the dog limit from 14 to 12.Download AudioZach Fansler, the K300 Race Manager says a driving idea behind the change was to encourage more local mushing teams to run the full 300.“Some of our teams with mid-size kennels, that have maybe participated in the K300 in the past, or have looked to do those kinds of things, don’t always have 14 dogs ready to go. Or they might have 11 so, and might feel discouraged and not participate in the 300,” said Fansler.2014 K300 champion Rohn Buser congratulates his lead dogs after his 2nd Kuskokwim 300 win.Many large teams, however, use the K300 to test out dogs in a race scenario prior to the Iditarod in March.“It does kind of give them two less dogs to look at, and that was something I think weighed very heavily on the minds of the board as they were making that decision. And I think the push behind it is that it came up at last year’s musher’s meeting,” said Fansler.The YK Delta’s muddy trails may not be race ready now, but with a higher purse and no entry fees, Fansler says he’s seeing a lot of interest from big time mushers like DeeDee Jonrowe, the Busers, and Joar Ulsom.“We’ve heard from Brent Sass and Hugh Neff, we’ve heard from Lance Mackey. And right now we feel like we could have a field larger than we’ve had since the early ‘90s, late ‘80s,” said Fansler.Fansler expects local mushers to be at the starting line, but says he doesn’t have the official word yet from 9-time champion Jeff King. The race keeps the rest of the rules from 2014, which allow for 6 hours of flexible rest time. Kwethluk will be the first official checkpoint, although mushers are not required to sign in or out.The YK racing season kicks off December 20th with the Holiday Classic, a 40-mile race out of Bethel. The season continues with the 100 Mile Challenge a week later. The 2015 Kuskokwim 300 is scheduled for January 16th.last_img read more

Hospital accreditation at risk over sterilization questions

first_imgFairbanks Memorial Hospital could lose its accreditation after being flagged for inadequately documenting some of its sterilization procedures.The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that an independent commission says it found three instances since January in which surgical implements like screws or plates may have come in contact with an unsterilized surface.The equipment was then quickly “flash” sterilized.But there’s no record of required follow-up tests. The commission says that poses an “immediate risk to life and safety.”The hospital must pass follow-up reviews, including a surprise inspection. If it fails, it will lose its accreditation.Hospital Foundation President Jeff Cook says new procedures went into place Friday to prevent future problems.Hospital leaders say they have been trying to minimize the use of the quick sterilization technique.last_img read more

Winamp Community Update Project releases first Winamp Preview

first_imgWinamp Community Update Project releases first Winamp Preview by Martin Brinkmann on January 03, 2019 in Music and Video – 31 commentsWACUP — the Winamp Community Update Project — released a preview version of the music player to the public yesterday.WACUP is a third-party modified version of the music player Winamp that is based on Winamp 5.666 patched and not the recently leaked Winamp 5.8 Beta.Radionomy, the owner of Winamp, released the beta officially as a reaction to the leak to provide interested users with a clean copy of the application to avoid malware abuse.The company revealed that it had plans to release a new version of the music player in 2019; whether that will be the case or not remains to be seen. Considering that there have not been any new releases, except for the release of the leaked beta since Radionomy acquired Winamp, it is anyone’s guess whether 2019 will see the release of a new official Winamp.Winamp Community Update ProjectThe first preview release of WACUP requires Windows 7 or newer. The program will install Winamp 5.666 patched on the system if not installed already as it requires that version. The lead developer of the project suggests that users install the preview into a separate directory to avoid conflicts with existing Winamp installations.WACUP is provided as an installer at this point in time that may install Winamp WACUP edition on the system or copy it for portable use.It includes the following features that set it apart from Winamp 5.666:Includes crash and security fixes.Support for Big Bento modern skins and native cPro skins.Tweaks that improve the loading and shutdown time of the program.Plugin, command-line, and media format support improvements.You find the most recent changelog here.WACUP displays a skin selection screen on first run. It features classic and modern skins for Winamp. Note that there is also a checked box that allows the program to check for updates for tools used by WACUP; you can disable that and either update manually only or run manual checks for updates in the application.The player opens with the iconic Llama Whippin jingle and the classic Winamp interface (using the selected skin).If you used Winamp before you will feel right at home; nothing changed interface-wise, every feature and button is still there.What you may notice is the improved startup and shutdown speed, and better stability while running the audio player on the system.Obviously, you have to integrate your music library in the player again if you did not upgrade an existing installation of Winamp on the device.The project team plans to release bi-weekly beta versions and new preview versions once a month.Closing WordsWACUP is an interesting alternative for Winamp users if the project team continues development and manages to release new versions regularly. There is certainly a market for classic media players like Winamp.I stick to AIMP and MusicBee for now.Now You: do you use Winamp or another audio player?

Comandante Macha the young woman with cancer fighting from the barricades in

first_imgWith a homemade mortar on her shoulder, a blue-and-white flag as a cape, and a gas mask to protect her from tear gas, Nahomy Urbina, 21, fights for a free Nicaragua. She does it from the San José school barricade in Jinotepe, Carazo. She spent days there, sleeping, eating, making friends.Nahomy could just be another protester, but something sets her apart: aside from fighting for her country, she’s fighting cancer. Doctors diagnosed her with lymphoma last December, but that hasn’t stopped her from taking to the streets since April 19, demanding that Daniel Ortega step down.She’s known as “Comandante Macha” or “La Macha.” They call her that because she has more male friends than female friends. She’s also one of the few women staying in the barricades.Last year, when doctors told her she had cancer, she felt her world fall apart, that everything was over. But that’s changed, she said, there are days when she doesn’t even feel sick or feel any pain.“A lot of people say, poor thing, you’re going to die, but I don’t like when they say that because I detest pity,” Urbina said.Mortars and chemotherapyNahomy is currently undergoing treatment. After surgery, she has to get 12 sessions of chemotherapy. She only had four to go as of June 22.“It’s been really hard and I want to thank everyone who’s been sending me nice messages. They lift my spirits because you get depressed after the [chemotherapy] sessions and those messages of encouragement help keep me here in the barricades,” Urbina said. There are days when she’s more tired, but she doesn’t give up the fight.“Comandante Macha” is already a known face. She’s from Diriamba, but everyone in Carazo knows who she is and now they know her throughout the country. Her story and pictures have done the rounds on social media. People have even made T-shirts with her likeness, carrying a homemade mortar. Aside from shooting mortars, something she learned how to do at protests in Managua, she leads demonstrations while shouting slogans into a megaphone. After surgery, Urbina has to undergo 12 sessions of chemotherapy. Mynor Garcia / La PrensaLosing fearUrbina says the killings on behalf of the government made her lose all fear. In the beginning, she just participated in protests. Then she started going to the barricades. She went in the afternoons and would go home at midnight. But as the attacks on protesters by paramilitary forces and riot police grew, she felt she had to support the cause more and sleep there, in the barricades.That’s what she did for more than a dozen days.In the beginning, her parents didn’t agree with what she was doing, but they support her now.“I understand that my parents worry about me, they even tried to punish me to protect me, but I rebelled and went back on the streets,” Urbina said.She’s received death threats on social media, but she says they don’t scare her because they just want her to give up the fight out of fear.“I don’t fear for myself, but I fear for my family and the guys, because they’re just kids, I call them my little puppies,” Urbina said.Like the thousands of protesters in Nicaragua, Nahomy is convinced that Ortega needs to go.“His ambition for power corrupted him and turned him into a murderer,” Urbina said. Until he leaves power, she says she won’t leave the barricades. Read the original story in Spanish at La Prensa, first published on June 22.This story was translated into English and republished in The Tico Times as part of a partnership with La Prensa to help bring their coverage of the Nicaraguan crisis to an English-speaking audience.

KELLY BACK IN CUSTODYCHICAGO (AP) — A spokeswoman for the jail where R. Kelly is being held says he will not be released until he pays $161,000 in back child support. Kelly was taken into custody at the Cook County Jail in Chicago yesterday after appearing in court for unpaid child support. His publicist, Darryll Johnson, says Kelly came to the hearing prepared to pay $50,000 to $60,000, but the judge wanted the whole amount. Johnson says Kelly cannot pay the full amount because he has been unable to work. Johnson says the judge’s decision means nobody wins, because “the kids still don’t have any money.” Kelly’s next hearing is set for next Wednesday. Kelly was free on bail after being charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of four women, including three who were underage. He has pleaded not guilty.

description of the event in this space No more than four lines if possible N DESAI/SCIENCE About 900000 years ago a skull cap shows that the human ancestor H erectus lived at Olorgesailie and used big Acheulean hand axes and scrapers to butcher meat About 800000 years ago the climate began fluctuating more intensely from wet to dry and the environment became more arid and grassy At about 615000 years ago early humans began to make smaller Acheulean tools they could carry farther and to more carefully select basalt as raw material perhaps shifting hunting tactics in a changing environment Potts says The last hand ax at the site dates to 499000 years ago before the gap By the time the archaeological record restarted at 320000 years ago the Acheulean tools were gone and the basin had changed dramatically The wet-dry cycle was even more extreme More than 80% of mammal species had vanished and new kinds of elephants pigs foxes and springboks gathered at tree-lined streams MSA tools—relatively sophisticated blades and points that would have been hafted onto spears—were plentiful The site yielded no human fossils in this key time frame so researchers can’t be sure who the new toolmakers were But discoveries elsewhere offer a strong hint For years archaeologists had thought the MSA tools were too old to have been made by our species Then last year fossils resembling H sapiens were found near MSA tools and dated to nearly 300000 years ago at Jebel Irhoud in Morocco—timing that fits the Olorgesailie chronology Features of the MSA tools also suggest they were the handiwork of sophisticated humans The toolmakers were highly selective about their raw materials importing obsidian from up to 90 kilometers away Such far-flung connections are a "hallmark of human social organization and an important buffer in forager societies" whose members may move to distant places in hard times Brooks says The tools also are smaller more precise and more uniform in shape than Acheulean tools They represent a milestone in abstract thinking: A hand ax preserves the shape of the original lump of rock but creating a blade from an already prepared core forces toolmakers to visualize its shape in advance Brooks says The team also found chunks of black rock and pieces of red ochre that had been punctured by sharp stone chisels They propose both were used as pigments to create marks of individual or group identity suggesting a high degree of social organization Bodo Ethiopia Herto in Ethiopia~160000 Omo Kibish in Ethiopia~195000 Jebel Irhoud in Morocco~300000 Olorgesailie in Kenya~320000 N DESAI/SCIENCE Expanded social networks are "a key unique feature of modern humans" says archaeologist Curtis Marean of Arizona State University in Tempe although he suspects there will be some debate about the evidence for long-distance networks noting that most of the stone came from just 25 to 50 kilometers from the site By combining artifacts with environmental data the papers help explain what drove the MSA says archaeologist Shannon McPherron of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig Germany "They were able to use the long time-sequence at Olorgesailie to demonstrate how changes in the environment and the fauna correspond to the shift to the MSA" But these MSA toolmakers hadn’t developed the full package of sophisticated behavior Dunbar cautions "It’s at the bottom of the scale of modern behavior" he says "We’re not talking about Salvador Dalí" "Apple is not willing to pay a dime, "The president. is
