Us Embassies Step Up Security U.N. Report: Women May Need ‘Different Treatment’ to Achieve Economic EqualityThe UN Women organisation unveiled a major global policy agenda on gender equality and transforming world economies. Twenty years after the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, significant achievements have been made; in Sub-Saharan Africa for example 22 countries meet or exceed the recommended 14 week paid maternity leave. But, as our UK Correspondent Natalie Powell reports, the UN believes more should be done 27th AU Summit: Women leaders call for gender equality in Africa Related UN urges Kenya to advance gender equality to boost economic growth
Martha R. “Marty” Wilhelm, age 70 of Batesville, died Saturday, May 21, 2016 at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Born February 13, 1946 in Batesville, she is the daughter of Lillian (Nee: Niese) and John Suttmann. She married Alvin Wilhelm April 12, 1969 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg. Marty was a teller at Fifth-Third Bank 23 years before retiring in January of 2008. She was also a member of St. Louis Church.Marty grew up in a large farm family. An excellent cook, her family teased that she never learned to scale back. She would always cook more than was needed and would “encourage” you to eat more well after you’d eaten all you could. But with hospitable being the word to best describe her, that was just Marty. Her tator tot casseroles and potato salad were family favorites. Some of Marty’s interests included watching Dancing With the Stars, Wheel of Fortune, I.U. Basketball and Duke Basketball, although no one in the family could figure that one out. She enjoyed spending time at the beach and always looked forward to the regular trips of Gulf Shores Alabama or Panama City Beach Florida. After retirement, she also enjoyed meeting friends for coffee at McDonald’s. Her true passion though, were her grandkids. Marty loved nothing better than spending time with them and would do anything for them.She is survived by her husband Alvin; daughters Jennifer Lents of Batesville, Michele Hutchek of Speedway, Indiana; sons Brian of Osgood, Indiana, Christopher of Batesville; sister Clarissa (Chris) Adams of West Chester, Ohio; brothers Paul Suttmann of Batesville, Cletus Suttmann of Oldenburg, Albert Suttmann of Sacramento, California and eight grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Alvina Herbert, Sarah Jones and brother Wilbur Suttmann.Visitation is Tuesday, May 24th, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home with a Divine Mercy Chaplet service at 4 p.m. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 25th, at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to St. Louis School or Wilhelm Grandchildren’s Education Fund.
Indiana Lt. governor Suzanne Crouch upgraded to a Real ID at the Indiana State Fair recently.Beginning in October of 2020, Americans will be required to have the enhanced identification to board flights or enter certain federal facilities.What is Real ID? Congress passed the Real ID Act after a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission. The Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards.As early as January of 2018 domestic air travelers that have a license issued by a state that is not compliant with Real ID they must have an alternate form of identification. The Transportation Security Authority has a list of acceptable forms of ID here tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification.To upgrade to Real ID residents must visit a BMV branch and provide a social security number, lawful U.S. residency status and Indiana residency.“The Indiana State Fair is a Hoosier tradition that attracts residents from around the state,” said Lt. Governor Crouch. “I’m here today to demonstrate the ease with which Hoosiers can upgrade to a Real ID now to save time and avoid confusion in the future.“We are excited Lt. Governor Crouch is setting an example for all Hoosiers,” said BMV Commissioner Peter Lacy. “To do it at our mobile branch at the State Fair is added bonus.”More information is online at in.gov/bmv/2356.htm.

They are one point behind the Catalan club with a game in hand.However, despite Champions League glory and much success in the Madrid hot-seat, Zidane revealed he may not last much longer in his current job.“I won’t coach for 20 years. I’ll retire before that,” Zidane said.“I’m an unusual coach, anything could happen. I’m not planning anything. It’s the day-to-day that excites me. For how long, I don’t know.“In my head I’ve always been a player. I played for 18 or 19 years, and after that when people asked me if I’d be a coach, I said no. “Then I decided to become one. This really wears you out. It won’t be 20 years, that’s for sure.”Zidane put their impressive season down to their defensive personnel, as he explained: “[Ramos and Varane] are the best pair around.”Tags: La LigaReal MadridUEFA Champions LeagueZindeine ZIdane
By Joe ChapmanTWO former leading football officials in Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Upper Berbice) have initiated a sports programme, aimed at fostering the development of youths in the area of sports in the mining town of Linden.Former president of the Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA) Collis Gifth and past secretary of the UDFA, Jermaine Figueira (MP) are the main movers, as executive directors, behind the Right Start Foundation, a non-profit organisation which intends to push for the empowering of young men and women in sports, armed with the fundamentals which will enable them to have better values and understanding of the importance of education in pursuing sports.MP Figueira, who is responsible for Marketing and Accounting, stated: “The programme is strategically designed to eloquently amalgamate sports and academic values in an effort to give our young aspirants a sense of understanding that enables them to encapsulate the importance of having a sound academic background in order to become a successful sportsman or woman.”The Member of Parliament and secondary school teacher noted that “it is no secret that most, if not all our young athletes dream of one day becoming like one of the great sports superstars they admire.“However, although they may have the physical aptitude and passion to become as great as their icons, many of them fail to even consider that apart from being physically fortified, there is a much greater part to becoming a successful athlete, which is to be academically sound.”According to Figueira ”many of them see the success but don’t see the sacrifice”.Gifth, who has responsibility for Administration and Finance explained that “in the much developed nations, once a certain level of talent is discovered within a child, he or she is admitted into an academy where their talents are nurtured in an embryonic environment, and into college where he or she is given an opportunity to pursue an academic career apart from playing sports, which can certainly guarantee them the solid foundation they truly need to achieve the level of success they envisage, and more importantly have a sound career out of sports.”Relating the importance of academics for youths involved in sport: “By the time that player reaches a professional level, he or she will at least possess a Bachelor’s Degree in an academic field which makes him/her well-rounded athletes with a sound academic background to corroborate their physical capabilities. This therefore will nullify any chances of career setbacks or failures even if he/she does not make it to stardom status,” Figueira argued.Looking at the advantage of academics Figueira opined “In simpler terms, educated players are easier to be coached and respond better to what they are taught.”The first venture by this new group will be an innovation, Formula/Twenty (F/20) Community Cup Skills Football tournament during the Linden Town Week in April where many youths will be involved in football competitions with a difference that should engage their interests somewhat.With this in mind, Gifth remarked that through this initiative by his foundation they are bringing to Linden the quest for young athletes having an academic career that will be enhanced once they are given the ‘Right Start’.

James “Buster” Douglas’ mother passing away just over three weeks before his heavyweight championship bout against Mike Tyson served as the underdog’s greatest motivating factor in knocking out “The Baddest Man on The Planet.”But Douglas had additional motivation leading up to the 1990 bout, which still stands as arguably the greatest upset in sports history ahead of its 30-year anniversary. When asked if anything could be counted as a greater upset in sports, Douglas said, “I don’t think so. Nah. It’s an amazing honor.”Although Douglas wound up losing the WBA, WBC, IBF and lineal heavyweight titles to Evander Holyfield eight months later, his incredible victory against Tyson cemented his place in sports history.”The reason why I turned pro was to leave my mark on this world, and I’m glad to say I accomplished that,” Douglas said. “Out of all these billions of people in the world, my name will resonate forever.” MORE: Join DAZN and watch Canelo Alvarez vs. Rocky Fielding on Dec. 15″It was the media that really wasn’t taking me serious because they really weren’t giving me any chance,” Douglas told Sporting News in New York City on Friday before a screener for ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary titled “42 to 1,” which premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.The title refers to the lopsided odds that were placed on the fight, although Douglas wasn’t aware of them as he headed toward the bout at the Tokyo Dome.”I knew they were ridiculous,” Douglas said of the odds, “but I didn’t know how bad they were.””Buster” did know the media was treating the match as a foregone conclusion, however. Everyone anticipated Tyson recording another KO. Questions from reporters mirrored that feeling at the time.”It was like, ‘Buster, how much do you think you’re going to weigh? What color trunks are you going to wear?’” Douglas said. “I’m serious! They were scratching their heads like, ‘What the f— are we going to ask him?’”Looking back, “Buster” couldn’t blame them for assuming he would lose. A then-23-year-old heavyweight world champion, Tyson entered the ring with a 37-0 record, including 33 KOs to his name, carving out a reputation as the most ferocious puncher in boxing.”Realistically, they got caught up in that,” Douglas said of the media being captivated by the aura of Tyson. “By the time we fought, Mike was proven to be a world beater, a legitimate champion. He beat some formidable guys. I don’t blame [the media]. They’re going off what they see. But I think you should still treat a guy with respect because he gets in there.”And it wasn’t just the media writing off Douglas before the fight.”[My mom] went and told all her friends that I was going to win — ‘Buster is going to knock Mike Tyson out,'” Douglas said. “They still didn’t believe her. They didn’t know nothing about the boxing game. They only knew what they seen and they seen this wrecking ball. If you weren’t decapitating people, you had no chance against this man.”MORE: Join DAZN and watch Canelo plus more than 100 fight nights a yearDouglas went on to prove that he had more than a puncher’s chance. The sports world wasn’t ready for what was about to happen — against all odds — on Feb. 11, 1990 in Tokyo.”It took about four or five rounds for people to realize that ‘S—, this dude is fighting Mike,'” Douglas said. “He wasn’t doing what he usually did. Any other time, the fight would’ve been over. He would have been going in there like a hell-beater. He thought he could do that to me, but he found out it was going to be a long night.”The bout saw a battered Tyson knock Douglas down with a right uppercut during the waning seconds of the eighth round, but the challenger roared back in the ninth, paving the way for the round of his life.Connecting on a few left jabs to gauge his range, Douglas landed a pulverizing right uppercut, following it up with a vicious left-right-left hook combination that sent Tyson crashing to the mat. The image of “Iron” Mike with scrambled faculties patting around the canvas to search for his mouthpiece remains one of the most shocking boxing moments of all time.
OFM. Betts (R)BOS@MINTue 8:10M. Pineda (R)$4800$4100$17UPGRADE Today’s MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, June 18SP: Jordan Yamamoto, Marlins @ Cardinals. The Marlins rookie made quite the impression during his major league debut last week, throwing seven scoreless innings. The Cards have been struggling lately, ranking 28th in OPS over the past two weeks, so advantage Yamamoto. He’s a GPP-only play considering how heavy favorites the Cardinals are with their ace on the hill and the fact that they’re home.C: Christian Vazquez, Red Sox @ Twins. I like the price and the matchup against Michael Pineda, who continues to struggle vs. righties (.870 OPS and .367 wOBA against). Vazquez has been seen hitting near the top of the Red Sox lineup lately and has an OPS over .800 this year.MORE TUESDAY MLB: SP rankings1B: Anthony Rizzo, Cubs @ White Sox. The Cubs will be very chalky on this 15-game slate — for good reason considering they’re facing off with Ivan Nova, who sports a 6.28 ERA this year. Nova has allowed 14 HRs this year across 14 starts, and lefties have absolutely destroyed the veteran righty, posting a .349 average, .960 OPS, and .408 wOBA against him.2B: Jason Kipnis, Indians @ Rangers. I’m not a huge fan of Kipnis in general, but he did have a three-hit game, including a big home run, on Sunday, so maybe he’s turning the corner. He’s been hitting fourth recently, which is obviously an ideal run producing spot. Cleveland’s game total in Texas is mighty appealing.SS: Marcus Semien, A’s vs. Orioles. Oakland righthanded hitters are really appealing to me on this slate. Even though Oakland isn’t a great hitters park, Gabriel Ynoa is not a good pitcher, especially against righties. Semien is batting .350 over his past 10 games and is riding a 10-game hit streak, as well.3B: Bryan Reynolds, Pirates vs. Tigers. He’s hitting against everyone this year considering he’s batting .361, but he’s been incredible from the right side with a .364 average and .420 wOBA. He’s batting second tonight, and I could get behind a top-of-the-order Pirates stack. OFB. Reynolds (B)DET@PITTue 7:05D. Norris (L)$4800$3300$22See above SPB. Anderson (L)BAL@OAKTue 10:07G.

LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of April 14, 2020 The eleven days pending in this League if the competition resumes arouses great excitement in the figure of Rubi despite the fact that the objective of fighting for European positions seems almost like a utopia after the irregularity shown so far this campaign. But the current Verdiblanco coach does not reject that hope and for this he wants to emulate the end of the course signed by his club two seasons ago: Betis signed 23 points in the last eleven days of 2017-2018 and this allowed the then team trained by Quique Setién to get a ticket to Europe.The start of that brilliant final stretch started precisely at these same heights of the league course with a plenary session of 18 points that catapulted the verdiblancos to the privileged area. Rubi is now clinging to it, who warned these days about the unforeseen scenario if the League returns in a different context: “If you also compress the calendar, which will be logical, maybe in three weeks there is a team that out of 15 points makes 12 and appears in areas that nobody expected ”. His figure went from being questioned as an owner of the Betico bench to living with some tranquility after the victory against Real Madrid and the arrival of this obligatory break. In the club the hope to still grab a passport to Europe is low in view of the progression that the team had throughout the season. However, confidence in Rubi seems to regain strength for this final stretch of the campaign and also for a hypothetical future. At the moment the planning of the next course is already underway through different movements that contemplate this probable scenario of not being present in European competitions.
Sam Allardyce believes the biggest challenge his side will face during the Tyne-Wear derby on Sunday will be absorbing the atmosphere at St James’ Park.It has been billed as arguably the biggest game between Newcastle and Sunderland for many years and Allardyce admits it is by far the “biggest game of the weekend”.Allardyce’s first win in charge of the Black Cats came in a 3-0 victory against his former side Newcastle earlier in the season and he is confident of a repeat if his team are mentally ready for the Magpies’ crowd.“We’re in pretty good form at the moment but we can’t win a game,” Allardyce told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“It’s just converting a good performance into a victory now. Games are running out and victories are the most important thing, starting Sunday – how we get it on Sunday, it doesn’t matter!“My aim is to give the players that mental toughness to go out and perform in that atmosphere.”Due to the FA Cup last weekend, West Ham missed out on playing their Premier League fixture and with the international break next week, it will mean Sunderland will only play one game in three weeks.“I didn’t want to miss a game last weekend so it [the fixture schedule] has been a real problem for us,” he added.“We already face the last week of the season with three games. It’s been a real problem because having played so many games in a short amount of time over Christmas and New Year.“Having a good game against Southampton and then not having another one for two weeks is something I have found a problem.”
