Some Indiana beaches along Lake Michigan closed after spill

PORTAGE, Ind. — Some beaches are closed along Lake Michigan in northwestern Indiana after authorities say a chemical spill into the Little Calumet River caused fish to die in the area.The National Park Service announced Thursday it closed the Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk beach areas at Indiana Dunes National Park as well as waters out to 300 feet (91 metres).The Indiana Department of Environmental Management says a steel plant belonging to ArcelorMittal released excess amounts of cyanide and ammonia-nitrogen into the river’s east branch, causing a fish kill noticed this week. The company says in a statement it’s investigating.The city of Ogden Dunes also closed its beach. Authorities say Ogden Dunes’ drinking water wasn’t affected, but the community’s filtration facility restricted the intake of water as a precaution.The Associated Press read more

Ascena Retail expands its wardrobe for women spends more than 2 billion

Ascena Retail expands its wardrobe for women, spends more than $2 billion to land Ann Taylor by The Associated Press Posted May 18, 2015 5:45 am MDT Last Updated May 18, 2015 at 12:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This March 5, 2013 file photo shows an Ann Taylor store in Mount Lebanon, Pa. The Ascena Retail Group is buying the owner of Ann Taylor and Loft stores in a cash-and-stock deal valued at about $2.16 billion. Ascena’s brands include Lane Bryant, Dress Barn and Cacique. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Ascena Retail Group is buying the owner of Ann Taylor and Loft in a deal valued at about $2.16 billion.Ann Taylor will join a stable of retail clothing stores owned by Ascena, including Lane Bryant, Justice, Dress Barn and Cacique, giving the combined company annual sales of $7.3 billion.A push for the sale of the Ann Inc. began in earnest last August when major shareholders Engine Capital LP and its partner Red Alder LLC urged the board to put the company on the block.The retailer had suffered same-store sales declines in three of its past quarters as up-and-coming fast-casual clothing chains ate up market share.The investors said in a letter to Ann’s board that the company was an “incredibly suitable candidate” for private equity given the financial conditions at the time, but also that a large international retailer could speed up the company’s global brand expansion.That retailer made itself known Monday.Though its name is not well known among shoppers, Ascena, based in Mahwah, New Jersey, owns about 3,900 stores under a number of names in the U.S. and Canada.Ann had 1,030 Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Factory, Loft, Loft Outlet and Lou & Grey stores in 47 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada.The combined company could better enable it to weather the heavy discounting that has hammered the retail industry as competition heats up.“The transaction will make us part of a larger organization with a diversified portfolio of brands focused on the women’s apparel market, a strong operating platform and a powerful financial base,” said Ann CEO Kay Krill in a printed statement.Ann shareholders will own about 16 per cent of Ascena once the transaction closes. They’ll get $37.34 in cash and 0.68 of a share of Ascena Retail Group Inc. stock in exchange for each of their shares.The companies put the total price at $47 per share. That’s a 21 per cent premium to Ann Inc.’s Friday closing price of $38.71.The buyout, which was unanimously approved by the boards of both companies, is targeted to close later this year and doesn’t require approval by Ascena stockholders.Shares of Ann Inc., based in New York, jumped $7.55, or 19.5 per cent, to $46.26 in morning trading on Monday. read more

Taylor Sandbothe leads Ohio State womens volleyball to comeback win over No

Credit: Christopher Slack / Lantern PhotographerA dominant effort from junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe propelled the No. 14 Ohio State women’s volleyball team (21-6, 10-5) to a comeback win against No. 16 Illinois (17-9, 8-7) on Wednesday.Sandbothe recorded her first career double-double on 19 kills and a career-high 11 blocks (one solo), registering a game-high 25 points as the Buckeyes came away with a win in four sets (16-25, 25-17, 25-18, 25-23) in St. John Arena to complete a season sweep of the Fighting Illini.“You can’t take points off,” Sandbothe said. “I don’t get the opportunity to be that player and I don’t want to be that player.”Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell also left her mark on the game with 16 kills and 13 digs, her 10th double-double of the season.“It’s a product of the whole team,” Campbell said. “Being able to get a really good dig or setting up a good block makes it easier for us to be able to distribute the ball all over the place.”After missing two games as she continues to deal with a left elbow injury, freshman setter Taylor Hughes returned to the starting lineup and led all players with 47 assists, along with four blocks and three kills.With 14 total blocks, OSU was able to hold Illinois to a .163 hitting percentage for the match. Junior libero Valeria León played a pivotal role in the strong defensive effort, picking up a game-high 19 digs.The Buckeyes also struggled on the offensive end through the first two sets as the Fighting Illini had 10 of their 11 blocks for the game. But OSU came alive in the third and fourth frames with a combined .373 attack percentage and only six errors.Campbell said a win over an Illinois team that came into the contest on a four-match winning streak will help her team’s confidence moving forward after losing four of its last six games.“It feels really good to get a really good win against a really good team, just helping us finish these last few games out strong,” she said.After a three straight games on the road, being back at home also helped the Buckeyes.“We wanted to get back in our house this week,” Sandbothe said. “We’ve got a big week ahead of us to show what we’re about, what we’ve been working hard on all practice last week (and) just bringing that to light.”OSU got into a deep hole early on in contest, finding itself down 9-1 quickly in the first set. Sandbothe tried to get her team back in it with three kills and four blocks, but the Buckeyes could never close the gap to less than five as they dropped the opening frame.That would be the only set dropped by the Scarlet and Gray on the night, however, as they battled back to take the next three. Getting back to the gameplan was crucial in the comeback effort for the Buckeyes.“Our coaches had talked to us about having a fast tempo on our sets and really limiting our errors,” Campbell said. “I think that we gave them a lot of points in that first set.”Sandbothe continued her dominance in the second set, but the result was different for her team as it evened the match at one.She picked up seven kills and her four blocks helped hold Illinois to a .000 hitting percentage for the set. Things were closely contested until the junior went on a tear, as she had a hand in six of eight Buckeye points to fuel an 8-1 run and give her team a 20-10 advantage to put things out of reach.The momentum stayed on the home side in the third set. Led by seven kills from Campbell and five more from Sandbothe, the Buckeyes attacked at a .415 clip and never trailed, taking a 2-1 lead.The Buckeyes found themselves down for much of the deciding frame, trailing by as many as five points, but worked their way back to tie the Fighting Illini at 18.From there, the two teams went back and forth, looking poised to go to extra points with the game knotted up at 23, but a Sandbothe kill and a block by Hughes and senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson ended the match.OSU will be back in action on Saturday when they are scheduled to take on Michigan in St. John Arena. The match is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. read more

DDay heroes set sail for Normandy on MV Boudicca in a blaze

Roy Cooper who served on King George V destroyer as the ship departs for NormandyCredit:Paul Grover Joan Berfield as the ship departs for NormandyCredit:Paul Grover For Cooper, watching his daughter and successor lead the national commemorations was “an enormous and astonishing moment”.As for being once more on the high seas as the ship sailed out of harbour and into the Solent past 11 Royal Navy warships while a lone Spitfire passed overhead, he called it “shatteringly wonderful”.“It brings back the memories but they are very mixed memories,” he added. “Some very sad.”Portsmouth was the headquarters and main departure point for the military and naval units destined for Sword Beach on the Normandy coast. Many of those onboard had departed from this very port on the night before D-Day.Royal Marine Joe Corless, 93, was the coxswain of a landing craft that left Portsmouth the evening of June 5 en route for Sword Beach. Onboard his vessel were navy commandos tasked with dismantling explosives left by the Germans on the beach. The joint eldest on board is sub lieutenant Roy Cooper, 101, of Dorset, who during D-Day was placed second in command of a minesweeper. Earlier in the war he was aboard the Royal Navy warship HMS King George V in Scapa Flow that was inspected by the Queen’s father George VI – who described the D-Day invasion as ‘the great crusade’. Leaving from the same port 75 years on brought back bittersweet memories. “It was horrific really,” he said. “We lost seven men including an officer and I lost a couple of friends.” Joan Berfield as the ship departs for Normandy She turns 95 on Friday and says the US President and first lady wished her a happy birthday.“It was overwhelming really,” she said. “The service was really emotional.”The Royal British Legion ship has been at sea since Sunday, first taking the veterans to Dunkirk before returning to Britain for the national commemorations. On Thursday after docking in Normandy they will visit Bayeux Cathedral for a service attended by the Prince of Wales. Roy Cooper who served on King George V destroyer as the ship departs for Normandy Some of those onboard, such as Royal Marine Douglas Thorne, an 18-year-old gunner on a landing craft at Juno Beach, have never returned to Normandy.The 93-year-old was another veteran onboard to meet the Queen on Wednesday and described the encounter as “a real honour”. Donald McGeachy, 96, who 75 years ago was aboard a tank landing craft that was hit by a mine on the way into Sword Beach, only confessed to his son two years ago that he had been at D-Day and has never been back to Normandy.Seated on deck as the band played Rule Britannia he said: “It makes you feel like somebody.”After the flotilla left Portsmouth it stopped at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight, just as the Allied armada did 75 years ago.As the ship’s horn sounded church bells rang out across the seaside town. Prayers of remembrance were also read out.And then as the sun dipped down over the horizon the veterans sailed on, to the beaches that stand testament to the heroism of a generation. For Ted Cordery, 95, the pomp and pageantry couldn’t have been a more different experience compared to 75 years ago as a leading seaman torpedoman aboard HMS Belfast – frantic among the booming guns and later hauling the injured and dead aboard, an experience that has scarred him for life. Before boarding the MV Boudicca he enjoyed lunch with the Queen and the US President Donald Trump.“The Queen asked me how it was,” he said. “I told her very noisy with guns firing and the smell of cordite but we did our bit.”President Trump shook his hand and told him ‘you guys did a great job’. Cordery’s retort: “I told him we were all in it together.” The last time Cordery visited Normandy he says he was moved to tears by a young French girl who approached him and kissed him on both cheeks. “She said thank you for what you did,” he recalls. “You gave us back our country.”Joan Berfield, 94, from Buckinghamshire, who was a Wren coder during the Second World War and spent D-Day on a submarine in the middle east, was another veteran on board to be greeted by the Queen earlier in the day. On the eve of D-Day 75 years ago they departed in a massed armada of thousands of ships cloaked in a veil of secrecy.On Wednesday night the 250 veterans aboard the Royal British Legion chartered cruise ship MV Boudicca sailed out of Portsmouth harbour in a blaze of glory, en route once more for the Normandy beaches but this time hailed by a nation united in gratitude.The Red Arrows roared overhead and bunting fluttered as the band of the Royal British Legion struck up the Britannic Salute on deck.As the ship sounded its horn making its way out of the harbour crowds cheered and watching police officers saluted from shore. In large white lettering placed next to the Portsmouth Naval Memorial dedicated to the fallen of the First and Second World Wars someone had spelt out: ‘Thank You’.  Prime Minister Theresa May stood on the decks of the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth berthed in Portsmouth Naval Base, joined by First Sea Lord Sir Philip Jones and flanked on both sides by the crew.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

I almost scored as many as Messi – Tagliafico

The second was, I admit, a little lucky,” Tagliafico told UEFA.com, according to FourFourTwo.“I know I almost scored as many as Messi did last night, though I don’t know if he was watching.”“It was a difficult game, especially the first half, but that’s what you expect in the Champions League.”edwin van der sarReport: Van der Sar staying at Ajax for now George Patchias – September 12, 2019 Edwin van der Sar will not be leaving Ajax to take up a job at Manchester United.In the last few days, one bookmaker suspended…“The coach told us during the break just to keep playing the way we were; he was happy with our first half.”Donny van de Beek was also on the scoresheet for Ajax, as AEK Athens coach Marinos Ouzounidis bemoaned his side’s lack of character in the second half.“The timing of the first goal shouldn’t serve as an excuse for our defeat,” he told the media.”“What got to me most is the disappointment of my players who never really believed they could bounce back from that 1-0.”“We need to work on our mentality, we need to become more determined to respond.

Veterans Path to Pearl Harbor

first_imgPaul Johnson’s path to Pearl Harbor included an expedition along the Great Wall of China.Forty-five years after that horseback trek, Johnson got to revisit a stop along his Great Wall route. He went by way of Sesame Street.At 95, the Vancouver veteran has witnessed some unforgettable events of the past century. The Japanese attack on Dec. 7, 1941, was a historical landmark for a generation.Johnson can still remember the moment 72 years ago when he was looking down at a Japanese warplane while drinking coffee. Johnson and a friend were on their ship’s fantail when they saw a torpedo bomber fly past, just above the water.“We were 40 feet up, and he was lower than we were,” Johnson recalled.It was not his first look at the Japanese military. Johnson was already a seasoned sailor when the USS Castor, a military transport, steamed into Pearl Harbor on the night of Dec. 6, 1941.Johnson enlisted in 1938 and was part of the U.S. Navy’s Asiatic Fleet, which is how he spent part of his hitch sailing in the saddle.

Minni defends herself in Rifat murder

first_imgAyesha Siddiqa MinniAyesha Siddiqa Minni, wife of slain Barguna youth Rifat Sharif, has claimed herself innocent in her husband’s murder in broad daylight.Holding a press conference at her father’s residence in Maitha village, Minni told newsmen on Sunday that she did not marry Nayan Bond.Rather, those who created Nayan Bond and the terrorist group Bond 007 in Barguna are trying to divert the murder case in a different direction by accusing her, she added.”By uploading negative posts, doctored images and comments, a vested quarter has been plotting against me since Rifat’s murder. Their main intention is to direct the case to a different course. Because, those who created 007 Bond group are very influential and rich,” she said at the press conference.About Nayan and her marriage, Minni said, “It’s a lie. I didn’t marry him. Once he forced me to sign a paper. Later I came to know that it was a marriage certificate.””Nayan was a drug addict and drug dealer. He had been stalking me for a long time. He even threatened to kill my father and younger brother. That is why I was  scared to speak against Nayan,” she pointed out.Abdul Halim Sharif, father of Rifat, on Saturday in another press conference held Minni responsible in his son’s killing.About her father-in-law’s statement, Minni said, “My father-in-law is sick. He has become ill after losing his only son.””I tried my level best to save my husband. I risked my life trying to resist the attackers while they were hacking Rifat. I took him to Barguna General Hospital. But when the physicians advised that he be shifted to Barishal, I lost my senses,” she said.Rifat’s father Abdul Halim Sharif told a human chain, “I think Minni was behind my son’s murder. Police can reveal the mystery of the murder by arresting her.”On Sunday, Abdul Halim Sharif said, “Minni used to go to college alone. On the day of Rifat’s murder, she phoned him to go to her college. And later he was hacked to death by Nayan Bond in front of the college.”He added, “Minni hid her marriage with Nayan Bond, the main accused of the Rifat murder. Her family also lied about this. She married Rifat without parting with Nayan. She kept close contact with Nayan even after marrying Rifat.”Quoting Sahida Begum, Nayan’s mother, Abdul Halim Sharif also alleged that Minni visited Nayan’s home even the day before Rifat was killed.Rifat’s father also raised a question as to how Minni escaped being stabbed while Rifat was being hacked by a number of youths.In a new video footage, Minni was seen reluctant when Rifat was being caught by the youths. When Rifat was strained with blood, she did not show any attempt to take him to a hospital. Rather she was seen looking for her sandals and one of the attackers was seen giving Minni her handbag.Abdul Halim Sharif also questioned why Minni did not accompany Rifat when he was being taken to Barishal in an ambulance.Rifat Sharif, 22, was hacked to death by a group of youths in broad daylight in Barguna district town on 26 June. The incident was caught on surveillance cameras.Police so far arrested 13 people in connection with the murder. On 2 July, Nayan Bond, the main accused of the case, was killed in an alleged gunfight with police.last_img read more

Police records say Sri Ramakrishna died of throat ulcer

first_imgKolkata: Sri Ramakrishna had died of “throat ulcer” according to the register that has been kept with the Cossipore police station.The devotees and admirers of Sri Ramakrishna had entered “throat ulcer” to be the cause of his death in register of Cossipore police station on August 16, 1886. They entered the name Gadadhar Chattopadhyay and not Sri Ramakrishna in the death register and his profession was described as priest. Sri Ramakrishna was staying at a garden house in Cossipore and had breathed his last on August 16, 1886 at the age of 50 years. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataDeputy mayor Atin Ghosh will handover a digital replica of the death certificate to the Belur Math authorities on Saturday. It may be mentioned that a museum on the history of Kolkata during the time of Sri Ramakrishna has come up at Belur Math following the initiative of Swami Prabhanandaji, vice-president of Ramakrishna Math and Mission. The Math authorities are setting up an archive on Sri Ramakrishna and requested the Kolkata Municipal Corporation ( KMC) to give them a copy of the death certificate lying with it. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateGhosh said as the death register is with the government it is not possible to hand it over to RKM and a digital replica will be hand over. It may be mentioned that as Swami Vivekananda was cremated at the Belur Math campus there is no death certificate of Swamiji. During the British period the law was to register the death of a person at the police station under whose jurisdiction the crematorium was situated and not with the KMC. Sri Ramakrishna was cremated at Cossipore crematorium which fell under Cossipore police station. Though it is generally believed that Sri Ramakrishna had died of cancer, there are many doctors who believe that as biopsy was not invented in those days to detect cancer it is difficult to say whether he was suffering from cancer or not. Many of them believe that he was suffering from ulcer. Senior civic officials said as discussion on cancer was not very common in 1886, the devotees of Sri Ramakrihna had entered the cause of his death as ulcer in the register. Sri Ramakrishna who was staying at Dakshineshwar had complained of acute pain in the throat and was brought to Kolkata. He stayed in a house at Shyampukur Street and then moved to a garden house in Cossipore. It was here his young disciples started staying with him as he needed constant attention. Scholars on Sri Ramakrishna maintained that this was the beginning of the Ramakrishna Sangha. Many renowned doctors in Kolkata including Dr Mahendralal Sarkar had examined Sri Ramakrishna. His well-built body deteriorated and he became frail as he could not eat anything. Despite ill health he blessed his house holder disciples who had assembled at the Cossipore garden house on January 1, 1886. The day is observed as Kalpataru Divas.last_img read more
