As you might’ve expected, it’s pretty much everything you need to swap the Challenger Demon’s front wheels to a skinnier, drag strip-oriented setup. The package includes a hydraulic floor jack, a cordless impact wrench, a tire pressure gauge and a torque wrench, to name just a few of the bits and pieces, all wearing the Demon logo. That’s just the tip of the iceberg; Dodge says you get much more, including a set of narrow front wheels and what Dodge calls “Direct Connection Performance Parts” and the “Demon Track Pack System.” ‹ Previous Next ›last_img read more

Croatia’s presidential candidates prepare for run-off

first_imgIvo Josipovic, Croatia’s president since 2010, and rival candidate Kolinda Grabar- Kitarovic are neck and neck as they go into the second round of a presidential election on Sunday (11 January).In the first round, held on 28 December, neither candidate won an outright majority. Josipovic, from the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SDP), won 38.6% of the vote. Grabar-Kitarovic, of the centre-right Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and a former minister for foreign affairs and European integration, received 37.1%.The result was closer than expected, as opinion polls had made Josipovic the clear favourite. The main challenge for the two candidates will be to garner the votes of candidates that failed to make it to the second round. Milan Kujundžic, of the right-wing Croatian Dawn party, and Ivan Vilibor Sincic, a 24-year old independent, won a combined 23% of the vote. Sincic, whose main campaign message was an attack on the establishment, won 16.4% of the vote. He is advising supporters to spoil their ballot papers in the second round rather than back the remaining contenders.Croatia’s centre-left government has to deal with a weak economy that is suffering from a six-year recession and an unemployment rate of nearly 20%.In a televised debate on Sunday (4 January), Grabar-Kitarovic held Josipovic responsible for the parlous economic situation. “It is the five worst years in Croatian history,” she said.Josipovic countered by saying that Grabar-Kitarovic had failed to produce measures to improve the economy and increase employment.The position of president is largely ceremonial, although the outcome of Sunday’s vote is seen as a test ahead of the next general election, scheduled for February 2016.last_img read more

Baited rabies vaccine to be distributed the week of August 1

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The annual Rabies Bait Drop, a week-long, cooperative effort between the State of Vermont and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Wildlife Services to stop the spread of the rabies, starts on August 1.Rabies vaccine — in the form of a sweet-smelling oral bait that is attractive to raccoons and skunks — will be dropped in rural areas of Vermont from low-flying aircraft and placed by hand in residential centers. Approximately 450,000 quarter-sized blister packs containing rabies vaccine will be distributed in nearly 100 Vermont communities across nine counties. A switch allows pilots to control where the baits fall, in order to avoid roadways, homes and other places where people are most likely to be.Vermont Public Health Veterinarian Natalie Kwit said the bait packs are not poisonous, and people or animals can’t get rabies from the bait. “The rabies bait packs are not harmful to people, pets or wildlife,” said Dr. Kwit, “but it’s important to leave the packs undisturbed so that they can be eaten by wild animals.”If a bait must be moved, use gloves or a plastic bag in case the blister pack is damaged. If your pet eats a bait, or if a child brings one home, let officials know by calling the Vermont Rabies Hotline at 1-800-4-RABIES (1-800-472-2437) or call the toll-free number printed on the bait.Photo: Example of a rabies bait blister pack. Image courtesy Vermont Department of HealthRabies is a deadly viral disease of the brain that infects mammals. It is most often seen in raccoons, skunks, foxes and bats, but unvaccinated pets and livestock can also get rabies.The virus is spread primarily through the bite of an infected animal. If left untreated, rabies is almost always fatal in humans and animals. However, treatment with the rabies vaccine is nearly 100% effective when given soon after a person is bitten by a rabid animal.So far this year, five animals in Vermont have tested positive for rabies, three of which have been raccoons.According to wildlife officials, rabid animals often show a change in their normal behavior, but you cannot tell whether an animal has rabies simply by looking at it. People should not touch or pick up wild animals or strays – even baby animals.If you suspect an animal may have rabies, call the Rabies Hotline:1-800-4-RABIES (1-800-472-2437) or 1-802-223-8697Learn more about rabies in Vermont at healthvermont.gov/rabies(link is external).Watch a video of an aerial bait drop (West Virginia): https://youtu.be/hGbnICU5-V8?list=PL46328461CF9E31E4(link is external)Source: BURLINGTON, VT – VDH 7.28.2020last_img read more

Two year creole research project launched

first_img 178 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share A two year Creole Research Project was launched in Dominica Friday 6 April 2018. The project is aimed at developing and advancing policy proposals to establish the island as a Centre of Excellence in the preservation and promotion of creole culture. It is a collaborative effort between the University of Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom, the Konmite pou Etid Kweyol, the Cultural Division and the National Cultural Council in Dominica. Cultural Officer Gregory Rabess, during the launch at the Old Mill Cultural Center said research activities will be carried out in Dominica and the UK during 2018 and 2019. “Key activities planed in Dominica include community workshops and focus groups and focus group discussions in selected communities considered as creole hubs in Dominica. A workshop in the Kalinago territory; a youth forum and focus groups targeting youth. In addition there will be an international creole symposium in 2019. Interviews with cultural elders, experts and icons are also planned,” he said. Activities in the UK include an academic conference, a youth forum, focus group discussions and public engagement workshops. This research project will assist in determining current attitudes, ascertain support for further institutionalizing creole culture and traditions and document critical aspects of the heritage for the sustainable development of all its dimensions Rabess explained. “The research will also investigate and document core principles and best practices on advancing policy on preservation and promotion of the creole heritage. The research will lead to the development of a policy paper on creole language and culture, two books and a video documentary. A project website and social media initiatives will provide visibility and information on the project on an ongoing basis,” he added. Thus, a research network will be created between the University of Bedfordshire and the Kommite Pou Etid Kweyol, the Cultural Division and the National Cultural Council in order to establish and develop advocacy for advancement of the creole heritage and culture through the arts and humanities and to also establish and sustain long term engagement and partnership between key actors and stakeholders in Dominica and academics at the University of Bedfordshire. “Dr. Violet Cuffy who is a Dominican national and senior lecturer at the university of Bedfordshire in the UK. She is the principle researcher and she is of course here with us to help launch the project in Dominica. The research project is supported by the Arts and Humanities research council in the UK and the Dominica high commission in the UK and various UK based diaspora organizations are key stakeholders in the project,” Rabess said.

I will not rush my comeback – Asamoah Gyan

first_imgAsamoah Gyan says he will not force himself to be fit for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations if it will be detrimental to Ghana’s course at the tournament.The on-loan Sunderland striker at UAE club Al Ain insists the Black Stars is strong enough to cope with his absence if he is unable to make a full recovery from a hamstring injury by the time the competition starts in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.“Like I said before when I am 100% fit everyone knows what I can do so the most important thing is to get fit first,” Gyan said upon his arrival in Ghana on Thursday.“I am really important to the team and I will do anything possible to get fit for the Nations Cup.“I will try to get fit but if I am unable I believe there are other players who can play; the Black is an all round team and I wouldn’t want to draw the team back.”The 24-year-old will start treatment immediately with Ghana’s medical team and will subsequently get a fare share of the horse placenta treatment from renowned Serbian therapist Mariana Kovacevic in the quest to get him fully fit by the time Ghana plays its opening game against Botswana on January 24.last_img read more
