WASHINGTON – Six weeks after taking power, congressional Democrats have their first triumph in their campaign to end U.S. participation in the Iraq war. The Democratic-controlled House issued a symbolic rejection of President Bush’s decision to deploy more troops to Iraq on Friday, opening an epic confrontation between Congress and commander in chief over an unpopular war that has taken the lives of more than 3,100 U.S. troops. The vote on the nonbinding measure was 246-182, and within minutes, Democrats said their next move would be to challenge Bush’s request for $93 billion in new funds for the Pentagon. “The stakes in Iraq are too high to recycle proposals that have little prospect for success,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, leader of Democrats who gained power last fall in elections framed by public opposition to the war. Republican senators said in advance they would deny Democrats the 60 votes needed to advance the resolution, adding they would insist on equal treatment for a GOP-drafted alternative that opposes any reduction in funds for the troops. Even so there were signs of Republican restlessness on the issue. Only two members of the GOP rank and file sided with Democrats on an earlier procedural vote; the total figured to be higher this time. The House vote completed a turnabout from the fall of 2002, when the House bowed, 296-133, to Bush’s request to authorize military action against Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein. U.S.-led troops made quick work of his regime but soon found themselves targeted in a country where long-suppressed sectarian rivalries flared and outside forces rushed to intervene. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have died in the ensuing war, along with more than 3,100 U.S. troops. Bush made no comment on the developments in the House, and his spokesman said the president was too busy to watch the proceedings on television. After a secure videoconference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Bush said the Iraqis reported providing troops to fight alongside Americans, making sure that no ethnic or religious factions are ignored in the security operations, providing $10 billion toward reconstruction and working on an oil revenue-sharing law. “That’s good news for the Iraqi people. And it should give people here in the United States confidence that his government knows its responsibilities and is following through on those responsibilities,” Bush said. More than 390 of 434 lawmakers spoke during nearly 45 hours of dignified debate that spilled across four days – an unusual amount of time devoted to what Republicans and Democrats alike said was the most significant issue confronting the country. House Republican Leader John Boehner appeared to choke back tears at one point as he read from a letter that a husband of a former congressional aide wrote home before being killed in Fallujah. Pelosi led the House in a moment of silence, out of respect, she said, for those who fought, and “particularly those who have lost their lives in the war, and their families.” Supporters of the nonbinding resolution included 17 Republicans – fewer GOP defections than Democrats had hoped to get and the White House and its allies had feared. Two Democrats joined 180 Republicans in opposition. The developments unfolded as a new poll showed more than half those surveyed view the war as a hopeless cause. A sizable majority, 63 percent, opposes the decision to dispatch more troops, although support for Bush’s plan has risen in the past few weeks to 35 percent from 26 percent, according to the AP-Ipsos poll. The House measure disapproves of Bush’s decision to increase troop strength, and pledges that Congress will “support and protect” the troops. Bush has already said passage of the measure will not deter him from proceeding with the deployment of another 21,500 troops, designed primarily to quell sectarian violence in heavily populated Baghdad. Already, troops of the Army’s 82nd Airborne have arrived in Iraq. Another brigade is in Kuwait, undergoing final training before proceeding to Iraq. Three more brigades are ticketed for the Baghdad area, one each in March, April and May. In addition, the Pentagon is sending two Marine battalions to Anbar Province in the western part of the country, the heart of the Sunni insurgency. Bush and his allies in Congress calculated days ago that the House measure would pass, and increasingly have focused their energy on the next steps in the Democrats’ attempt to end U.S. participation in the war. “The President believes that the Congress should provide the full funding and flexibility our Armed Forces need to succeed in their mission to protect our country,” said White House press secretary Tony Snow. But Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., who chairs the committee that will review Bush’s request, said, “the president wants a supplemental \. If he wants it, he’s going to have to accept certain things.” Democrats have made clear in recent days they will use Bush’s spending request to impose certain standards of readiness, training and rest for the troops. “That stops the surge \ for all intents and purposes, because … they cannot sustain the deployment,” Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said recently. Republicans pointed to Murtha’s remarks repeatedly during the day as evidence that despite their claims to the contrary, Democrats intend to cut off funds for the troops. “This is all part of their plan to eliminate funding for our troops that are in harm’s way. And we stand here as Republicans … committed to making sure our troops in harm’s way have all the funds and equipment they need to win this war in Iraq,” said Boehner of Ohio, the Republican leader.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “The passage of this legislation will signal a change in direction in Iraq that will end the fighting and bring our troops home,” she vowed after the vote, in which 17 Republicans joined 229 Democrats in a wartime rebuke to the president. Citing recent comments by Democrats, Bush’s Republican allies said repeatedly the measure would lead to attempts to cut off funds for the troops. Outnumbered, they turned to GOP Rep. Sam Johnson of Texas to close their case – and the former Vietnam prisoner of war stepped to the microphone as lawmakers in both parties rose to applaud his heroism. “Now it’s time to stand up for my friends who did not make it home, and for those who fought and died in Iraq already,” he said. “We must not cut funding for our troops. “We must stick by them,” he added, snapping off a salute as he completed his remarks to yet another ovation. Moving quickly, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., set a test vote for today on an identical measure, and several presidential contenders in both parties rearranged their weekend campaign schedules to be present.
Couture continued to control the pace of the fight, getting the better of the exchanges when the fighters were standing, and controlling the ground game, as expected. It was UFC’s debut in the midwest, and the crowd of approximately 19,000 at Nationwide Arena saw two fighters begin their quest regain their championship status. Rich Franklin, who lost his middleweight title to Anderson Silva last October, scored an impressive TKO victory over Jason McDonald. Franklin looked like his old self against McDonald, showing off his well-rounded style. Near the end of the second round, Franklin gained full-mount position and pounded his opponent until the bell rang to end the round. McDonald could not answer the bell for the third round. Also, former welterweight champ Matt Hughes, coming off a loss to Georges St. Pierre, earned a unanimous decision over Chris Lytle. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! As he stood in the center of the Octagon, chest heaving and sweat dripping from his brow, all Randy Couture could do was smile and offer one simple sentence. “Not bad for an old man, huh?” Few outside of Couture’s camp believed it could happen. Couture, 43, had been retired since losing the light heavyweight title to Chuck Liddell in February of 2006. In coming back to fight, he was taking on Sylvia, a 6-foot-8, 260-pound giant of a champion who possesses one-punch knockout power. If Couture was to have a chance, he would have to take Sylvia to the mat where his superior wrestling skills could be put to use. Instead, Couture showed off his striking ability early, landing a solid overhand right to the jaw of Sylvia, who was immediately staggered. Though Sylvia survived the round, it seemed he never recovered from that opening punch. “I didn’t think he’d try to strike with me,” Sylvia admitted in the post-fight interview. “He kept me off balance the entire fight.” Not bad for any man. Couture had just become, once again, the UFC heavyweight champion thanks to a unanimous victory over Tim Sylvia in Saturday’s main event of UFC 68 in Columbus, Ohio.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 A spokesman for Pasadena-based eHarmony did not immediately return a telephone call for comment on the lawsuit. An e-mail Claassen said he received from the company’s customer service department explained that “we have to create rules based on what’s best for most people, most of the time.” It says eHarmony is in the business of matching singles “free of relationship commitments.” The stance is based on customer surveys that show the vast majority of users want their matches to be divorced, widowed or never married at all, according to the company. Claassen would be welcome to join “once your divorce is final,” the e-mail stated. EHarmony’s policy against still-wed singles is at odds with some other online dating services. Match.com allows users to state in their online profiles whether they were never married, are widowed, currently separated or divorced. EMERYVILLE, Calif. – A man separated from his wife but not quite divorced is suing the popular online matchmaker eHarmony for refusing to help him find a date. John Claassen, a 36-year-old lawyer from Emeryville, filed a lawsuit in Alameda County Superior Court alleging eHarmony abridged his civil rights by refusing to match him up. He said the company, which has an “unmarried only” policy, broke state law by discriminating against him based on his marital status. Claassen, who is seeking $12,000 in civil penalties, said Monday he expects his divorce to be official in about two months, but that he shouldn’t have to wait until then to use eHarmony. It should be up to would-be dates to decide whether to pass him over because he is technically still married, he said. “I think ultimately California civil rights laws leave those sorts of choices to the individual rather than to business establishments,” he said. “Any user can decide who they’re looking for, and if they want to make a choice based on marital status, I don’t see why they can’t do that.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FORMER Derry GAA player and TV pundit Joe Brolly has launched another scathing attack on the Donegal GAA team and manager Jim McGuinness.The Dungiven man claimed Donegal’s tactics were ruining the game.Said Brolly: “The point that has been missed in all the furore caused since Sunday is that there are two mutually exclusive positions. The first is Donegal’s self-interest. They are perfectly entitled to play whatever game they wish to. “Incredibly, they are Ulster champions and had Colm McFadden bagged the goal he ought to have, they would be getting ready for an All-Ireland final.“The second however, is the wider interests of the game and the people who love it. On this front, we, the people, are perfectly entitled to say that what Donegal do is fundamentally damaging to Gaelic football.”Turning to manager McGuinness, Brolly went on: “Jim asked afterwards what was “the point in going out in a blaze of glory”, something Donegal conspicuously did not do last Sunday.“Instead, they went out in a shameful and forgettable way, iced by the disgraceful play-acting of Martin Boyle. No one will remember it. No one would want to remember it. “I ask Jim this question: Stripped of the romance and the glory, what is the point of Gaelic football?”Your View?You can leave a comment below:REVEALED: JOE BROLLY IN ANOTHER ATTACK ON DONEGAL was last modified: September 3rd, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Government notes with disappointment the decision of ArcelorMittal South Africa’s (AMSA) to retrench nearly 1 000 workers across the company and to close the Saldanha Works.This comes despite significant efforts by Government and public agencies to provide additional support to AMSA over the last few months, and to ensure a solution which would result in the elimination of job losses across the company and the continuation of the Saldanha Works.The recent efforts of Government are additional to extensive trade support which has been provided to the steel industry over the last few years to ensure protection from imports, including safeguards on imported hot rolled steel. In addition, Government has designated the steel industry to ensure that steel procured for infrastructure projects is locally produced.The Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Ebrahim Patel, met with the management of AMSA on several occasions during the last months to explore opportunities to save jobs and keep all of AMSA’s plants in operation. Most recently, the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) together with the Department of Public Enterprises, Eskom and Transnet engaged with AMSA management on additional support which could be provided by Eskom and Transnet to reduce energy and logistics costs for the company and at Saldanha, in particular.In early October, the Ministry of Trade and Industry convened a meeting between AMSA and the leadership of both Solidarity and Numsa (together “organised labour) to expedite a dialogue towards reduced job losses. AMSA agreed to suspend the Section 189 consultation process to allow time for a facilitated engagement with Government and Organised Labour. To ensure appropriate engagement, Mr Patel appointed Mr Glen Cormack, an experienced part-time Commissioner with the CCMA, to meet with the engage the parties towards a viable solution.Minister Patel facilitated meetings with the management of Kumba, which supplies iron ore to AMSA, to obtain further concessional pricing for Arcelor Mittal from Kumba, which would provide additional cost relief.All parties met several times over October and early November, during which time commitment was sought so that AMSA could suspend its retrenchment process completely and keep the Saldanha Works in operation.The consequence of the expedited facilitation and dialogue initiated by National Government, secured commitments of half a billion in annualised savings, in addition to once off savings of more than R200 million and additional commitments from organised labour to fast-track discussions on enhanced productivity arrangements.Speaking on the side lines of the Brics Trade Ministers meeting in Brazil, Mr Patel noted:“The closure of Saldanha Works and retrenchment of workers at AMSA is a harsh blow to industrialisation in the country. This is particularly regrettable given the energy and efforts of National Government, SOEs, organised labour and others to provide support and savings to AMSA. These commitments follow significant tariff protection and localisation initiatives provided to protect the steel industry from the threat of imports.“We recognise the challenges presented to the steel industry globally from over-capacity. Our efforts are directed at maintaining a primary steel production capability in South Africa. We urge AMSA to continue to work with National Government and other social partners to reverse this decision and find solutions which can keep the Saldanha Works in operation, and workers in employment. If no solution is found with Arcelor Mittal, they should consider selling the plant to ensure the country does not lose industrial capacity and workers and communities are not displaced.”Enquiries:Sidwell Medupe-Departmental SpokespersonTel: (012) 394 1650Mobile: 079 492 1774E-mail: MSMedupe@thedti.gov.zaIssued by: The Department of Trade and IndustryFollow us on Twitter: @the_dti

Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#app development#Apple#iOS 7 What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts It will still be challenging to upgrade many apps to iOS 7. Boates argues that heavily customized apps like Path and Evernote will have the most difficult time with the new design. Overall though, the work is less daunting then when Apple came out with a new form factor for the iPhone last year.The iPhone 5, of course, featured a larger screen than its predecessors — a 4-inch (diagonal) display instead of 3.5 inches. The bigger screen was more problematic for app publishers than almost anything Apple has done with its flat design principles in iOS 7. “Ultimately, developer time has been more involved when Apple has introduced devices with new form factors — iPhone 4S to iPhone 5, iPhone 3GS to the Retina iPhone 4 and the introduction of the iPad have been where we’ve had the most work,” said Jeff Chow, CEO and co-founder of Boston-based personal assistant app Springpad.Forward Or BackwardRadical iOS 7 Design Is Threat To Some Existing AppsApp publishers must make a choice in iOS 7 if they will support backwards compatibility with iOS 6. That means they would have to support both the flat design of the new version as well as the skeumorphic design of iOS 6. While most iOS users tend to download the latest version of the operating system, many enterprises and organization will have to support iOS 6 for an extended period of time while apps are updated and security protocols tested.“The biggest challenge with supporting iOS7 is going to be figuring out if we’ll support or abandon a divergent design on iOS6,” said Greg Raiz, founder of Boston-based independent app studio Raizlabs. “In general, most apps will be able to migrate over time. As with anything, some apps will take much longer and some may choose to ignore the visual trend.”If you are developing and designing a mobile app for iOS 7, let us know in the comments what kind of challenges you’re facing. Is there a particular aspect of iOS 7 that you find particularly difficult? How does the new flat design directive from Apple affect your product? As mobile developers and designers start digging into iOS 7, the general consensus seems to hold that the latest version of Apple’s mobile OS will give app creators some real headaches.But it may not be that bad. An informal ReadWrite survey of prominent mobile developers suggests that iOS 7 doesn’t reset the playing field for competing apps, contrary to what some developer-pundits have argued. Updating most existing apps to iOS 7’s new aesthetics, for instance, may take some late nights and a significant amount of elbow grease, but it won’t be impossible. And that’s why Apple gives developers months to work out the kinks before launching the final version of the OS, presumably to coincide with the introduction of the next iPhone. (See also: iOS 7 Development: Everything You Need To Know To Get Started)Our mini-survey asked some prominent mobile developers to expound on the challenge and potential of iOS 7 and what it will take for developers to make a splash when the final version of the OS is released later this year. Here’s what we learned.The “Flat” Design Challenges Of iOS 7The fact that iOS 7 migration won’t be impossible doesn’t mean it’ll be easy for all developers and designers. Anyone who wholeheartedly embraced the world of skeuomorphism — that is, designing software objects that resemble physical items such as notebooks or book shelves — with custom made icons and menu bars will have the toughest go of it.Tom Boates, the VP of user experience at Boston-based fitness tracking app RunKeeper, sums up the experience that many developers will face:Updating for iOS 7 will be a bit more work due to fundamental UI changes, but not as much as we initially feared. We have always strived to find a good balance between using familiar stock UI elements and adding some custom elements where it makes sense. Most of the places we used stock elements converted pretty well automatically, and our custom stuff was mostly unaffected.The parts that will require the most work will be any of the custom experiences we’ve designed (tracking an activity for instance), redesigning our header and navigation bar interactions and replacing our iconography.A Big Time Opportunity For Small Apps?How Apple’s iOS 7 Changes Everything For App DesignersRunKeeper was one of the first apps of its kind in Apple’s App Store. As such, it’s enjoyed a significant first-mover advantage over the many, many fitness apps that have followed it. Yet it is precisely these types of apps — older, established apps that enjoy legacy status among users in the App Store — that Instapaper founder Marco Arment believes will ultimately be disrupted by the design challenges inherent in iOS 7. “I don’t think most developers of mature, non-trivial apps are going to have an easy time migrating them well to iOS 7,” Arment said in ablog post on his personal website. “Even if they overcome the technical barriers, the resulting apps just won’t look and feel right. They won’t fool anyone.” Arment is well known for his proclivity towards hyperbole. He has a point in that iOS 7 will provide opportunities for app creators, but probably no more than when Apple added features like Siri or Maps to its iOS stack.“I think it’s an exaggeration,” Boates said. “People download and use apps because they solve a problem they have first and foremost … Your average iPhone user won’t bail on an app they are familiar with that solves their problems and is probably more fully featured in favor of a new player who just has a more iOS 7-like design.”Apple’s New iOS 7: What You Need To Know NowThe window for making a splash with iOS 7 will come when Apple showcases apps employing the new design at the launch of the new iPhone, expected later this year. Apps that Apple has featured with other devices and versions of iOS have done well in the past. Mike Katz, senior software engineer at Boston-based Kinvey, notes the success stories of Flipboard (announced with the original iPad), Path, Paper and Clear.“Like when the iPad came out, expect to see some early and very polished apps that do established tasks but challenge previous paradigms,” Katz said. “This will give enterprising developers good buzz and mindshare — but only for awhile. The big players will eventually catch up, and app usage is driven by their content and ecosystems.”Less Work Than iPhone 5 dan rowinski
