adidas plimcana Increased concern for missing Stoney Creek man

The family of a young Hamilton man missing for more than a week now is getting more concerned about what happened. No one has seen or heard from Harmanjit Singh since last Monday.

His family says this is out of character. And now the Hamilton police homicide unit has taken over the investigation.

Harmanjit Singh family has flown in from Vancouver to help with the search. And his father arrived from India last night and came right here to meet with police. His family says they concerned and his disappearance doesn make sense.

adidas predator astro turf in wake of corruption probe

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKRN) University of Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino has been placed on administrative leave, along with Tom Jurich, the athletic director, amid a federal bribery probe.

Jurich is on paid leave,

while Pitino is on unpaid leave. The coach’s attorney, Steve Spence, told the Courier Journal Wednesday that Louisville has “effectively fired” Pitino.

Pitino’s exit comes after the school acknowledged on Tuesday that the men’s program is part of a federal investigation into alleged bribery of recruits. The 65 year old coach was not named in the indictment that resulted in the arrest of 10 people including four assistant coaches at other schools and an Adidas executive.

Federal prosecutors said at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000 using money supplied by Adidas to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic shoe company. Court papers didn’t name the schools but contained enough details to identify them as Louisville and Miami, according to the Associated Press

The University of Louisville’s interim president Gregory Postel released this statement on Facebook:

ISTANBUL, Turkey, July 26 (Reuters) Muna Awwal wants to go to school. But she needs to go to work.

Muna says she is 10 years old. Nine, corrects her father, Mahmud, as they sit in the family’s second floor flat in Istanbul’s textile district.

Muna and her family arrived in Turkey from Syria in 2013. For the past few weeks she has helped her father and 13 year old brother Muhamed in a basement they rent, making cheap tops, dresses and T shirts for other textile suppliers. Her father Mahmud says some of the clothes are sold in Europe.

The family comes from the city of Aleppo and fled fighting in May 2013, he said. He shoos his children out of the room and settles on the carpeted floor. Now, he says, he relies on three of his five children to get by.

The Awwal family’s situation is not unusual. It adds to questions about how safe Turkey is for families fleeing war.

“It’s not normal at all to make my child work with me or with anyone else,” Mahmud Awwal said in June. “It’s not good. But we have no other choice. It’s very common here in Turkey.”

Over a few days in April and May, Reuters met 13 Syrian children in three Turkish cities who said they have jobs making clothes or shoes, even though Turkey bans children under 15 from working. Another four who were older than 15 said they worked up to 15 hours a day, six days a week, despite a law that says those up to 17 can only work 40 hours weekly. Dozens more children who were working were unwilling to talk.

In March, Brussels and Ankara agreed a deal that allows Europe to send back to Turkey migrants who came through the country on their way to Europe. Brussels has pledged up to 6 billion euros ($6.6 billion) to help migrants and refugees, and the deal states that when people are returned, they will be “protected in accordance with the relevant international standards.”

The European Union says Turkey is a safe country: In April, European Council President Donald Tusk called Turkey “the best example in the entire world of how to treat refugees.”

The United States is not so sure. Turkey’s “efforts to protect the growing and highly vulnerable refugee and migrant communities in the country remain inadequate,” the State Department said in a July report.

And rights groups say Turkey is far from safe. Groups such as Amnesty International have documented Syrians being shot at by Turkish border guards as they try to cross into Turkey, living in squalor, or deported back into the fighting. And they note Syrian children, who are often unable to get to school in other frontier countries such as Lebanon, are part of the labour force.

Turkey houses more refugees than anywhere in the world: 2.73 million of them Syrians by the last count, more than half of whom are under 18. Ankara says it has spent more than $10 billion helping refugees. It doesn’t recognise them as refugees, but at least on paper it does offer protection, including free education and basic healthcare, to those who register. The government has denied sending back any Syrians against their will and says no refugees have been shot at. President Tayyip Erdogan has said some Syrians may even win Turkish citizenship.

But the country is struggling to accommodate all those extra people, only 10 percent of whom are housed in camps. In May, the education ministry said some 665,000 Syrian children living in Turkey a majority of school age Syrians in the country were not in school.

No one can estimate how many work instead. Of around 125 Syrian households in Istanbul surveyed by Turkish charity Support to Life earlier this year, one in four households with children said at least one child could not go to school because the family depended on their pay. Half of those children worked in textiles.

Stephanie Gee, a fellow at Human Rights Watch, says Europe is “woefully ignoring” the problem of protecting children: “Unless Turkey can ensure that Syrian kids go to school, I think the whole question of effective protection is moot.”

The European Commission declined to comment. An EU source said that the EU executive has “systematically pointed to the critical phenomenon of child labour” and urged Turkey to adopt measures to prevent it. Europe has committed tens of millions of euros to help get more Syrian children into schools.

An official in the office of Turkish President Erdogan said it’s the West that should do more. Europe has accepted just around 850 Syrians for legal resettlement under the EU deal, and 31 Syrians have voluntarily returned to Turkey.

“Turkey is safer for refugees than any other country,” he said. “Rights groups should use their time and energy to tell other governments to follow suit instead of downplaying our efforts.”

Children have long been part of Turkey’s labour force. In 2012,
cheap adidas zx flux In Turkish sweatshops
the last year for which data was available, Ankara said almost one million Turkish children aged between 6 and 17 worked. Many of them help make clothing, textiles or shoes, industries that contribute $40 billion a year to Turkey’s economy and employ 2.5 million people more than half of them as casual labour, according to unions.

Turkey exports $17 billion in clothing and shoes a year, most of it to Europe, especially Germany.

The country had been addressing its child labour problem in clothing over the past few years, according to Lotte Schuurman, communications officer at the Fairwear Foundation, which works to improve working conditions. “But with the coming of the Syrian refugees it’s increased again.”

Syrians, and especially Syrian children, are undercutting pay. In the southern city of Gaziantep, near the border with Syria, a 30 year old Turk who gave his name as Selim said he used to earn 450 lira ($155) a week as a worker, but after Syrians came he set up his own business.

He hired children to carry fabrics, bring tea, and stack up cut out fabric. He now pays each child about $50 a week. “In the past, Turkish children worked here but now it’s only Syrians,” Selim said at the back of his workshop. “Turkish children did it as an apprenticeship but the Syrian children do it only for money.”

Syrians say they earn between half and a third of the going rate for the same work done by Turks. Children are even cheaper.

On balance, cheap refugee workers are more of a bonus than a burden for Turkey, said economist Harun Ozturkler of the Centre For Middle Eastern Strategic Studies in Ankara. They boost profits, which lead to new investment. There are already signs, according to Ozturkler and the World Bank, that some Turkish workers are shifting to better paid jobs. Last year, the economy grew by 4 percent.

When Syrians arrive, they are supposed to register at their local police station and receive a temporary protection card allowing them to stay. Many people Reuters spoke to said they had not been able to register, partly because the going rate for a bribe is nearly $70, more than they can pay. The presidency official said there were no problems with registration and no fee was charged, but there may be delays in areas of high demand.

Until this year, Syrians were not entitled to work permits, so they worked informally. Ankara started to issue permits in January, but a government official said only a few people have qualified, because workers either need to be self employed or obtain the support of their boss to apply.

In Istanbul in April, a group of teenage boys spilled out of a tall, red brick factory wheeling a massive metal cage full of rubbish towards a row of bins. The boys said they were not registered with the government.

The boys said they earned around $85 a week working through the night cleaning and boxing up shoes. “The boss is as nice as you can get,” said Juma, 17. “When we are working until the morning he comes and cracks a joke or gives us some sandwiches. Other times, if we have an order which needs to be done fast,
cheap adidas zx flux In Turkish sweatshops
he shouts at us.”

PORTSMOUTH Arraigned Monday on charges alleging he pawned stolen gold and was caught stealing sneakers from a mall store, James Morphy told a judge he was “caught up in a gang” that steals shoes and that he was beaten when he refused to do so.

PORTSMOUTH Arraigned Monday on charges alleging he pawned stolen gold and was caught stealing sneakers from a mall store, James Morphy told a judge he was “caught up in a gang” that steals shoes and that he was beaten when he refused to do so.

Morphy, 19, with no permanent address, was arrested by Newington police after a JCPenney employee reported the theft of a $65 pair of Adidas sneakers. Police allege the Saturday theft was committed by Morphy, who led store security on a chase during which a glass store door was shattered. Following his arrest, officers learned Morphy was wanted on a warrant for pawning a pair of gold chains that were stolen in Barrington, police allege.

Arraigned by video from the Rockingham County House of Corrections, Morphy was charged with two felonies alleging he pawned two pieces of gold jewelry and collected $650 for each. He was also arraigned on a misdemeanor count of shoplifting. Police Capt. Brian Newcomer petitioned the court for cash bail noting Morphy has reported four different addresses “depending on the occasion.” Newcomer said Morphy’s criminal history includes thefts in Maine and burglaries in Florida.

Morphy said he was “running with the wrong crowd,” called the judge’s attention to a cut over his right eye and said it was inflicted by someone in the so called shoe stealing gang when he refused to steal shoes.

f50 adidas In the back of your spice rack is a blend waiting to happen

adidas gazelle women In the back of your spice rack is a blend waiting to happen

Whether they’re found in a cupboard, a drawer or a rotating rack, a host of little used spices are probably taking up valuable real estate somewhere in your kitchen and they’ve probably been there for years. Maybe it’s a jar of allspice you only crack open for gingerbread cookies at Christmas, the sumac you were inspired to purchase by the Ottolenghi cookbook on the coffee table or that jar of Himalayan pink salt that just seems too fancy to use.

Use it all, says chef and spice purveyor Lior Lev Sercarz, and use it now. “Your spice cabinet should be a place of inspiration,” he says, “not a place to gather dust.”

Raised in a kibbutz in Israel where he recalls the food as being either bland or vinegary, Sercarz sees spices as the place where recipes should start, rather than an afterthought sprinkled on just before serving. “A potato can be transformed into a meal, just with the addition of spices,” he says.

Start by taking stock of what’s tucked away in that cabinet, beginning with the darkest recesses, which most likely house the spices that have seen the least use. If they’ve been there longer than a year as Sercarz suspects they have you don’t have to discard them, but you could consolidate several. Try creating blends with them, to use as seasoning for dips and sauces, dry rubs for meat, poultry and fish, or even to amp up the flavor in coffee and cocktails.

“If you make blends, you will find ways to use them across recipes, from sweet to savory,” says Sercarz. “It’s an edible tool.”

He suggests using the spice pantry the way you use your refrigerator, where items are regularly eaten and replaced and stock is rotated every few months from the back to the front. New additions should be marked with a date one year from when purchased, just to give you a deadline for using it up, or, at the very least, creating a new blend with what’s left.

Take ground cloves, for instance. As a spice with a tongue numbing quality, it can frighten home cooks with its intensity, yet Sercarz sees it as a versatile vehicle for flavors when used in moderation. In his latest book, “The Spice Companion: A Guide to the World of Spices” (Clarkson Potter, 2016), he recommends blending cloves with other spices that might also be found in the back of the cupboard, such as juniper berries, galangal and licorice root, to create a seasoning for sauteed savoy cabbage, or to add a spicy note to a traditional old fashioned cocktail.

“Most people don’t need a recipe, they just need the application,” Sercarz says. Hence, he’ll suggest dusting fresh scones with a mixture of cloves and confectioners’ sugar or mixing cloves with balsamic vinegar and grated apples to accompany pork chops.

Sercarz particularly urges home cooks to stop thinking of individual spices as relating to specific cuisines. He points out that black pepper, a native of Kerala, is hardly limited to Indian recipes, yet we tend to use chipotle powder only in Mexican recipes, or relegate curry leaves to, well, curry.

“It’s a spice,” he says. “It doesn’t matter where it comes from.”

Not only is pepper used across all cuisines, different types of pepper have specific flavor profiles, so it sometimes makes sense to switch out the black peppercorns for other varieties, such as herbaceous green or delicate white. This practice enhances different recipes and allows for a deeper appreciation of the characteristics of that variety.

When cleaning out the cupboard, take time to taste the spices. (Sercarz considers anything that can be dried and used to add flavor a spice, so this includes herbs, bark, berries, leaves and so forth.) Then start consolidating them into new combinations, such as celery seed with cayenne pepper. You could use that blend to flavor a compound butter, bloody mary or crab cake. A blend of marjoram, dried mint and fennel seed can season grilled fish, be sprinkled over bruschetta or lend a grassy note to emulsified olive oil and orange juice to drizzle on raw baby turnips.

“You probably already have a signature chicken recipe where you use a certain combination of spices, like salt, pepper, paprika and oregano,” says Sercarz. Fenugreek, cumin, dried onion and garlic become a perfect foil for spinach and lamb, while lemongrass, ginger and palm sugar can highlight either a fruit smoothie or a spicy dish of clams and chorizo. That little jar of pumpkin pie spice that’s hiding in the corner of your cupboard would be just as much at home in a chickpea curry as on the Thanksgiving table, because, in Sercarz’s philosophy, a blend really has no limitations.

“I’ve never had spices that don’t work together,” Sercarz says, “it’s just about adjusting the ratios. And even when I think a blend is very savory, I’ll have a customer put it into a brownie and prove me wrong.

It hardly needs saying that a bat is more than the physical line of defence; it’s a symbol, a totem, invested with dreams, subject to the forces of superstition and luck, the single prop for the vulnerable, suggestible psyche of the batsman.

For much of the history of the game, batmakers were behind the curve on this. The hints were there WG wrote to Gray Nicolls to congratulate them on one of his blades, a sweet longing evident between the lines of his simple postcard yet the psychology only began to be exploited with the defining bats of the 1970s and early ’80s: the Jumbo, the Scoop, the V12.

Now, though, with the epic re invention of the object itself, the supercharged, hyper tooled, bigger, deeper, thicker bats of the new century, the marketing has roared into areas that flick the switch of those male synapses: sex, technology, power.

Like a Steven Seagal revenge fantasy franchise, each edition more fevered, more heightened, more alluring and more ridiculous than the last, so the new season brings its new weapons, its ammo, its bats.

There are certain key adjectives that are common to all of the 50 plus batmakers and podshavers that have their wares on sale. Profiles are always “massive”; edges are “imposing”; bows are “exaggerated”; middles are “huge”; willow is “prime” . If you don’t feel rugged and ready to rock’n’roll with that lot hanging just below your waistband, then cricket probably ain’t the game for you.

Upon these pricy graphics are etched the product names, and it’s here that the makers salami slice their market. In this exotic collection of nouns, a batsman can locate the idealised version of himself.

For the preening alpha male there are bats to reflect his position in life: the Hunts County Envy Concept, the Gunn Moore Icon, the Boom Boom Arrogance, the Woodstock Tour de Force XL Gold, the SM Kings Crown, the Millichamp Hall Master, the Matrixx Terminator.

There are bats forged in the pits of heavy metal hell. Who wouldn’t destroy the puny bowling of mortals with the Gray Nicolls Oblivion Slayer, or the Hunts County Mettle Monster, the Slazenger Hex, the Hell4Leather Hellfire, the Hammer Cricket Berserker, the SAF Hades, the Willostix Medusa, and, just for the old hippy, the Woodstock Festival.

Other bats exploit the language of love, or at least of lust. They sound like 1970s hairspray or pub machine condoms: the Gray Nicolls Maverick Colossus, the Slazenger Ultra, the Chase Volante, the Woodstock Curve Gold, the Blue Room Swell, the Kippax Cricket Stallion, the Willostix Anaconda, The SS Gladiator, the Black Cat Shadow.

Yet more mine deeply obscure or arcane knowledge. Newbery’s longstanding fave the Mjolnir is titled after Thor’s hammer. Salix have gone Latin for the Praestantia (‘superiority; excellence’); Hunts County’s Caerulex is named for the type of willow it’s cut from; Adidas’ bumf claims that Pellara means to ‘beat away or banish’ (yeah, right); PiriPiri’s Tampiqueno Dias requires a detailed knowledge of cooking ingredients, while Puma’s retro Bionic asks you to recall Lee Majors’ Six Million Dollar Man, a show that doesn’t even seem to get a run out on cable these days.

What the batsman is seeking, though, can’t be found in a name, however extravagantly constructed, however flattering to the ego. Instead it is that moment when a new bat slips into the hands and feels like it has always been there. Manufacturers can call that what they like. I call it magic.
