Papa’s Pilar Gives You Another Reason to Jet to Key West

first_img Talking Rum, Cocktails, and Tiki with The Bamboo Room’s Kevin Beary Rum 101: An Introduction to the Different Types of Rum and How They’re Made Paradise, some might argue, gets increasingly better with the addition of booze. Take Key West. There’s plenty to eat, plenty to see, and it’s sunny and warm basically every day of the year. How could it be made better? Booze. Adding to the bars, breweries, and other establishments that populate Bone Island, Hemingway Rum Company, which produces Papa’s Pilar rums (named after Hemingway’s beloved boat, the Pilar) has added a gem to the already sparkling crown of awesome that is Key West: a distillery and experience center.Not only will you get to see how Papa’s Pilar is made, but you’ll get to do it while paying homage to the manliest man that ever manned, Ernest Hemingway. Located on Simonton Street just blocks from the waterfront, the 8,000 square-foot building formerly served as an all-brick tobacco warehouse that took three years to renovate. The space will include a miniature production facility capable of up to eighty gallons of rum per, experience center, tasting room, “trading post,” and eventually an events center.In the tasting room, you’ll be able to taste both Papa’s Pilar Blonde and Papa’s Pilar Dark, which are hand-selected from ports-of-call in the Caribbean, Central America and Florida for their age, character and maturity. They’re then blended and Solera-aged in bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry casks (for the Blonde), and bourbon, port, and Spanish sherry casks (for the Dark.)For the more literary-minded, the experience center will house a replica of The Pilar, newspaper clippings, photos, and a ton of other testosterone-inducing Hemingway memorabilia (and if you don’t get enough there, you can always walk a couple blocks away to visit the house he occupied while living in Key West. Then, if you really want to up your Papa game, you can always go get hammered in one of the bars he famously haunted—just don’t get into fights with people. That’s not cool.The experience center will be open daily from 9am-6pm and doesn’t require reservations.

Legal Aid Council Safeguarding Citizens’ Rights Under Enhanced Security Measures

first_img “In many instances, persons do not have the means to obtain legal representation… so we have a duty to fulfil (that entitlement) on behalf of those persons. So whatever we do, it is not to undermine any (security) effort, but to ensure that the ordinary citizen is equitably and humanely treated,” the Executive Director said. Executive Director of the Legal Aid Council, Hugh Faulkner, has reiterated the agency’s commitment to safeguarding citizens’ rights, particularly while enhanced security measures are being administered in some communities to curb crime.He said that as the Government implements measures to ensure public safety, the Council has a duty to play its role in preserving individuals’ fundamental rights.“In many instances, persons do not have the means to obtain legal representation… so we have a duty to fulfil (that entitlement) on behalf of those persons. So whatever we do, it is not to undermine any (security) effort, but to ensure that the ordinary citizen is equitably and humanely treated,” the Executive Director said.The Government announced a State of Public Emergency for St James in January, consequent on the upsurge in crime in the parish, as part of efforts to restore peace and public safety.Mr. Faulkner, who noted that the protection of human rights is fundamental to that dispensation, provided a breakdown of the entitlements of persons detained.He said detainees have the right to be informed about the reason for their detention, as soon as is reasonably convenient and in a language that is clearly understood.Detainees also have a right to due process, inclusive of legal representation and medical treatment as well as the provision of food and clothing.These persons also have the right to be visited by a spouse, partner or family member, religious counsellor and a medical practitioner of their choice.“He/she must be treated humanely and with respect for the inherent dignity of the person. In other words, the conditions of his/her detention should not violate the inherent human dignity… the presumption of innocence tags along with the detainee. He/she cannot be compelled to testify or make any statements against himself,” Mr. Faulkner explained.Special provisions must also be facilitated if a minor is detained. The name of the child is not to be published, and the minor must be held at a facility that is suitable for children. The juvenile is also entitled to have his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) present if he/she is being interrogated.Detainees also have the right to request a review of their detention or restriction of their freedom of movement through the Emergency Powers Review Tribunal.The Tribunal, located at the Office of the Prime Minister in Montego Bay, St. James, will review cases of detention or restriction orders in accordance with regulations 22, 32, and 33 of the Emergency Powers Act.Mr. Faulkner urged persons to contact the Legal Aid Council if they believe their rights have been violated during the State of Public Emergency operations.They may visit the Montego Bay Legal Aid Clinic, located at 42B Union Street; contact the Cornwall Bar Association at 312-8215; or the Legal Aid Council office in Kingston at 948-4861 or email aid.legal@moj.gov.jm.Persons may also visit the regional office of the Public Defender, located at Shop 18, St. Claver Avenue, Montego Bay.Under the Emergency Powers Regulations 2018, the security forces have been given extraordinary powers, which include the authorisation to arrest without a warrant and detain pending investigation any person whose behaviour gives reasonable grounds to believe that they are acting in a manner deemed prejudicial to public safety, or if they have committed, are committing or are about to commit any other offence. Executive Director of the Legal Aid Council, Hugh Faulkner, has reiterated the agency’s commitment to safeguarding citizens’ rights, particularly while enhanced security measures are being administered in some communities to curb crime.

Sebi fixes minimum staggered delivery period of 5 days for commodity futures

first_imgNew Delhi: Capital markets regulator Sebi on Friday fixed the minimum duration of the staggered delivery period at five working days for all commodity futures in order to bring uniformity in the timeline across exchanges. Staggered delivery period is the duration during which sellers or buyers having open position may submit an intention to give or take the delivery of the contract. At present, there is no uniformity in the length of staggered delivery period for commodity futures contracts across exchanges even for the same commodities, according to the Sebi circular. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal “All compulsory delivery commodity futures contracts (agriculture commodities as well as non-agriculture commodities) shall have a staggered delivery period,” the circular mentioned. “The minimum duration of staggered delivery period shall be at least five working days,” the circular stated. It clarified that the exchanges shall have the flexibility to set higher duration of staggered delivery period for a commodity futures contract after taking into account factors such as historical open interest, volume near expiry etc. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost In this regard, for the benefit of the market participants, the exchanges have been asked to jointly prepare and publish a detailed framework outlining various circumstances and factors which would require longer duration of staggered delivery period in a commodity. While giving a detailed framework, the markets watchdog said the seller or buyer having open position shall have the option of submitting an intention of giving or taking delivery on any day during the staggered delivery period. To ensure that all buyers have an equal opportunity of being selected to receive delivery irrespective of the size or value of the position, exchanges shall allocate received intentions to give delivery during the day on each day, except for the expiry day. “However, preference may be given to buyers who have marked an intention of taking delivery, which may be based on aspects such as location, quality etc,” Sebi said. Besides, pay-in and pay-out for the allocated deliveries shall happen within two working days after allocation. All open positions after expiry of the contract will result in compulsory delivery and will be settled at final settlement price of the respective contract while “pay-in and pay-out shall happen latest by the second working day after expiry.”last_img read more

Brazil Rejects $22 Million in Aid From ‘Colonialist’ G7

Rabat – The Brazilian government has rejected $22 million in aid offered by the Group of Seven (G7) countries, the seven largest economies in the world.The G7 pledged the funding during their annual summit held from August 24 to August 26 in France, in an effort to curb the wildfires raging in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest.Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro previously accused Macron of having a “colonialist” mindset when he said he wanted to make the fires a priority at the summit. Bolsonaro’s Chief of Staff Onyx Lorenzoni echoed a similar sentiment when he announced Brazil’s decision to reject the aid to online media outlet G1, saying Macron instead needed to take care of “his home and his colonies.”“We appreciate the offer, but maybe those resources are more relevant to reforest Europe,” continued Lorenzoni.“Brazil is a democratic, free nation that never had colonialist and imperialist practices, as perhaps is the objective of the Frenchman Macron.”Referencing the Notre Dame fire in April, Lorenzoni sniped that “Macron cannot even avoid a foreseeable fire in a church that is a world heritage site. What does he intend to teach our country?”“Brazil is a democratic, free nation that never had colonialist and imperialist practices, as perhaps is the objective of the Frenchman Macron.”“The Amazon forest is a subject for the whole planet”Speaking to French TV on the evening of Monday, August 27, Macron responded to the Brazilian government’s criticism.“We respect your sovereignty. It’s your country,” Macron said. “But the trees in the Amazon are the lungs of the planet.”“The Amazon forest is a subject for the whole planet. We can help you reforest. We can find the means for your economic development that respects the natural balance. But we cannot allow you to destroy everything,” said Macron.He also acknowledged that by importing soja from Brazil, France is “partly complicit,” as the industry puts further pressure on the rainforest.He added that Europe’s dependence on Brazil for imported proteins “was a very bad choice,” and that Europe needs to develop alternatives.73,000 Amazon fires this summer aloneEarlier this month, Brazil declared a state of emergency over the rising number of fires in the Amazon, and as the situation is thrust into the spotlight of international media, a global outcry has ensued.So far this year, almost 73,000 fires have been detected by Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), with a sharp spike in July and August. The number is an 83% increase from last year. Brazilian scientists believe that at least 50% of the fires are set by loggers and ranchers to clear land for cattle.Environmental agencies have attributed the spike in deliberate fire setting to Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro relaxing environmental policies and regulations in favor of economic growth.On Thursday, August 22, Bolsonaro said the Brazilian government lacks the resources to fight the fires.The Brazilian federal government has not yet provided any major organized effort to fight the fires, but following the G7’s monetary pledge Bolsonaro said that he would send 44,000 soldiers to help battle the blazes, and military planes began dumping water on fires in the Amazon state of Rondonia.The move has been dubbed “too little, too late” by many critics.Read also: The Blond Breakfast: Trump and Boris Johnson Meet at G7 in France read more

Urging tolerance and calling on the population to desist from further violence, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees (OHCHR) today condemned the killings of a local leader and a member of the Armed Police Force in south-central Nepal.The police officer was killed in a wave of violence triggered by the death of Mohit Khan, a local leader in Kapilvatsu, and there have been unconfirmed reports of more murders and rising ethnic tensions. Shops have been attacked, cars and homes have been burned and at least one mosque was destroyed by fire.“We appeal to the population to abide by the curfew imposed by local authorities and to respect places of worship while law enforcement agencies investigate the murder of Mr. Khan,” said OHCHR-Nepal Representative Richard Bennett. “Cool heads are needed; violence simply undermines the genuine efforts to bring about durable peace during this transition period.”OHCHR-Nepal recommends that the authorities of the Himalayan nation take immediate steps to provide humanitarian assistance to the many people who have been uprooted by the violence. read more

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today discussed the situation in Somalia and Sudan with Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, with the United Nations chief taking note of progress since the adoption by Somalia’s leadership of a political roadmap on the restoration of peace and stability in the Horn of Africa country.Mr. Ban reaffirmed UN support for the implementation of the roadmap by the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) with the support of the international community.

Blizzard job listing confirms Diablo III for consoles

first_imgBlizzard has remained a developer focused on the PC gaming market, but with a growing console gaming community eager to play the company’s games. While Blizzard has always said it wants to eventually tap into console gaming, it looks as though it might finally be about to happen.A job listing has appeared on Gamasutra’s Job Connect website and Blizzard’s own job section looking for a “Senior Producer, Console Diablo III.”AdChoices广告If the job title wasn’t enough to convince you, the description adds:The ideal candidate has prior experience in console game development and has a keen knowledge of how each discipline operates and interacts. Blizzard also has a requirement listed that at least one AAA console title must have been shipped by candidates while working in a producer role, showing they really do want someone with managerial experience to see Diablo III through to completion on consoles.Some other good news this week for gamers awaiting this game. Blizzard has released a new trailer showing off the Demon Hunter class:Read more at CVGMatthew’s OpinionThis is good news for console gamers as Blizzard looks pretty committed to getting the next Diablo on to Microsoft and Sony hardware at least. If the game sells well, which undoubtedly it will, it also lays the foundation for a trilogy pack to appear eventually, incorporating the first two games.The biggest challenge for the team working on this project will be getting the control system to work well with a joypad. Everything else is easily transferable from PC, but the control system is going to take some work and fine tuning. Even so, I doubt it will be as good as a keyboard and mouse combo.last_img read more

I do feel pressure but I believe strongly in Irish athletes Irish

first_img By Ryan Bailey ‘I do feel pressure but I believe strongly in Irish athletes, Irish coaches and Ireland as a nation’ Sarah Keane has been tasked with bringing the Olympic Council of Ireland out of the crisis it currently finds itself in and rebuilding the organisation’s plummeting credibility. 11 Comments Follow us: the42.ie WHAT FIRST STRIKES you about Sarah Keane, the newly-elected Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) president, is her enthusiasm for sport and, more specifically, Irish sport; it appears she genuinely cares.It’s a good start.“I am genuinely very privileged and humbled to be given this opportunity,” she says. “I relish a challenge and I just believe strongly in Irish sport.”Two Thursdays ago at the OCI’s Emergency General Meeting at Dublin’s Conrad Hotel, Keane won a three-way vote to succeed Pat Hickey. She was voted into the position by a large majority — receiving 29 of the 43 votes — ahead of fellow candidates Willie O’Brien, the acting OCI president, and Basketball Ireland chief executive Bernard O’Byrne.A new era, a fresh start and, at last, change.Hickey had held the position largely unchallenged since 1989 and although he had signalled his intent to stand down at the end of the Rio Olympics, the end of his 28-year reign was sealed following the ticket-touting scandal which has plunged the organisation into crisis.With the OCI’s reputation and credibility at an all-time low as the fallout from Rio continues, Keane has been tasked with picking up the pieces but she was, in so many ways, the obvious candidate for the ‘change’ ticket as the old guard was swept aside.The 42-year-old may not see it as a personal victory but, even at this early stage, her installation as president along with a largely new board can be viewed as a victory for Irish sport. The first steps have been taken.“Yes, I do feel a pressure to deliver, but I welcome that pressure actually,” she told The42. “I feel there is a lot of us on this journey because a lot of us want to play our part and I don’t feel like I’m alone which is important. Keane at the National Boxing Championships on Friday night. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHO“This isn’t going to be about me as president, I am the face of it at the moment but it’s about Irish sport and us collectively working together to get full value from it.“A lot of people were in place for a long time and there was definitely changes made and there was good stuff that was done however some of the practices were probably practices that were acceptable ten years ago and wouldn’t necessarily be acceptable now.“That’s why you often need new blood, for people to look at the way things are done differently, it’s not always a criticism of what’s gone before but more about what needs to happen to improve things in the future.”While Keane — the CEO of Swim Ireland — continually refers to the future, there are still issues from the past that need to be addressed. She has tried to do so in an honest and open manner, even if that has made her first week in the position a little uncomfortable.The full extent of the financial damage from the ticket-touting scandal was revealed at the EGM with Hickey’s arrest costing the OCI in excess of €800,000.In her first interview since assuming the position, Keane told Sean O’Rourke on RTE that she hoped the huge sum of money — which included €394,000 to law firm Arthur Cox, €214,900 to Grant Thornton and a staggering €69,500 on Public Relation costs — would be viewed as an investment in the future.“People are almost apologising before they interview me because I’m going to be grilled,” she continues. “And yes it is difficult because I don’t have all the answers and I’m hoping when I’m doing these things I’m not going to make a big mistake and will make things difficult for us as an organisation to move forward but at the same time that brings accountability; actually having people asking questions and someone else answering them.“I hope we look back and say ‘look at where the Olympic movement in Ireland is now and yes there was a whole lot of money spent and nobody really wanted to spend that money on what it was spent on but now the organisation is in a much better place’. Feb 19th 2017, 7:10 AM Keane succeeds Pat Hickey. Source: James Crombie/INPHO“The money spent on this crisis is not pleasant but at least we’re talking about it and trying to be transparent around it so it’s a start. We’ve been privileged to be elected but that’s all that has happened. We won’t earn trust or credibility unless we start demonstrating that we can do the job. It’s going to take time but talking about these things is a start.”Financially crippled by the ignominious end to Hickey’s tenure, Keane also faces the challenge of rebuilding the OCI’s reputation and convincing pretty much everyone that it is still relevant.But it’s not the first time the solicitor has taken over an organisation in the midst of a full-blown crisis having assumed the reins of Swim Ireland during a child abuse scandal in 2004.On paper, Keane has the credentials to lead the OCI out the other side; her qualifications include an honours degree in Law, a masters in Commercial Law and diplomas in Corporate Management and Financial Management.“I’ve been in Irish sport for quite some time and I’d like to be known as a collaborator,” she said.“I care about Irish sport and I think that’s important for people to know. I’ve spoken to people about their sports and I’d like to feel people know I care and I’m taking this opportunity very seriously. I have a work ethic and I am going to get down and give this a real go.“The other thing is I’ve been with an organisation through a time of change and there’s always been good people in it. I can recognise that there has never been everything bad about something, there’s always good stuff and it’s the same with the OCI.“In order to make this work we’re going to have to look hard at ourselves as an organisation and see what the athletes view the Olympic Council as. We’ve had a good bit of indication that athletes don’t know much about what the OCI does.“First of all we need to address the governance issues. We need to make sure the board is functioning properly and the whole board is working together. What do the president and the officers do versus the CEO and the staff? We’ve got to get that very clear so that we’re all working together for the value of Irish sport, not working against each other.”When asked how she plans on doing that, Keane added: ”I’d like to think we can show that the OCI is relevant and I would like to see us raise more funding which can go into athletes and High Performance as sport in general is not adequately funded in Ireland. Keane will continue in her full-time role as Swim Ireland CEO. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHO“I know we have a lot of challenges as a nation but I feel if we can deliver more backing of sport we will be doing a better job. We’ve a big job to restore credibility and to get people to invest in the organisation but I do think the OCI and Olympic Council is very relevant.“I think people have become very cynical about Olympic sport and that we’re on the political pages and speaking to political journalists is a sign of what’s happened. We need to start talking about the right things and that’s the athletes and their achievements.”A new era for Irish Olympic sport or a false dawn? Only time will tell, and Keane at least deserves that.“I think at least now the election has passed it feels like something has happened and we know where we are. We know who we’re working with and we can just get on with it as best we can.“Crisis does bring opportunities as well and while it’s not a very pleasant experience to be involved in, at the same time we have to try and take the positives out of it and the learnings from it and move the organisation forward.“Where are we now? Well hopefully we’ll end up in a better place and that’s all you can hope for as a result of what’s gone on because we are where we are now.“We’re committed to giving it a good go and I’m sure we’re going to trip ourselves along the way but we want to leave the organisation in a better place than when we moved in. That’s the objective. I belief strongly in Irish athletes, Irish coaches and Ireland as a nation and that’s why I’m here.”The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us!

But its next man up All of us are prepared Me

first_img“But it’s next man up. All of us are prepared. Me, Rob (Hughes) and Stepfan, and we’re excited for the opportunity in an unfortunate situation.”Taylor had similar things to say, noting that every player in the running back room prepares is if they are going to be the starter and thus prepare accordingly.“So if things do happen, we’re ready to step up,” he said.Should the team be forced to go on without Ellington, a dynamic talent who excels in the run game and as a receiver, it would stand to reason the game plan may change some. How much would likely depend on in-game situations.“But I don’t think it changes too much,” Dwyer said. “Obviously there are some things we might have to tweak, but I think that all of us will be able to do the same things. We’re all capable of doing everything. We’re all different, but we all can do everything. All of us are every-down backs, and we’re ready for the challenge.”Dwyer (27), Taylor (8) and Hughes (2) have combined to make 37 career receptions. Last season, Ellington had 39. “These are NFL players,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “They better be ready to play no matter what. Everybody has qualities and things they can do; we’ll just take advantage of that. But right now, it is what it is.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — The final injury report for the Arizona Cardinals’ Week 1 matchup with the San Diego Chargers has been released, and running back Andre Ellington is listed as “questionable” on it. The second-year running back has been battling a foot issue that reports have said could keep him out multiple weeks. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday morning Ellington’s issue is with the peroneus longus in his foot. “So you just keep on rolling.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling If anything, it’s a little uncertain.Arians said Ellington or not, the team’s running backs all have their defined roles and parts in the game plan, so whatever his status is Monday will not change much in that regard. Goodwin agreed.“Our general philosophy is this, alright: next man up,” he said. “Whoever’s in there is in there. Who knows what’s going to happen. You’ll see who’s out there on Monday, but next man up. That’s our philosophy.”Indeed it is. The phrase was used last season while the team suffered through injuries, and has been repeated over and over again this season after key players were lost to free agency, suspensions and more injuries. Both Dwyer and Taylor brought it up when asked about possibly having to fill in for Ellington, showing no hint of trepidation or concern over what could be an increased role Monday night. It’s exactly the mentality Arians wants his team to have, even if he’d rather they didn’t need to turn to it as often as they’ve needed to.“It happens, and when it happens and the next guy steps up, then you know the mantra works,” Arians said. “And it has and it will continue. There’s going to be a bunch more bumps in the road down this stretch of games, and we can’t worry about injuries because nobody cares except us. Everybody else is happy about them. Asked about Ellington’s status Saturday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he will be a game-time decision for Monday night, but added “there’s no doubt” he saw enough from the running back to believe he could suit up for the season opener.“Good, good,” he said about how Ellington has been moving around. “For him, everything’s good.”But, he admitted, what’s ailing Ellington is the type of thing that could feel different on a day-to-day basis.“It’s one of those things that every day when you wake up could be different,” he said. Of course, Ellington waking up Monday feeling good would be ideal, but if he’s not able to go the team will likely turn to Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor in the running game. In four seasons with the Steelers, Dwyer amassed 971 yards and two touchdowns on 230 carries, while Taylor gained 115 yards on 36 carries as a rookie for the Cardinals last season.“I’ve been in this situation before,” Dwyer said Friday, before Ellington’s ‘questionable’ status was known. “The standard is the standard. It’s unfortunate that our brother is injured right now, but we know he’ll be back. We don’t know when but we know that everything is going to be alright with him.
