If there is already an Event, be a team player! Try reaching out to the event host and offer your help in planning the event. Teamwork makes the dream work!3. Educate and inspire.Are you an accomplished cache owner? Do you have a special set of skills that come in handy when caching? This is your chance to share your abilities, passion, and creativity with your local community. Whether you are an avid climber, have mad crafting skills, or a big puzzle brain, incorporate a class or workshop into your Creation Celebration and show others how you implemented your best creations.

Villarreal win crucial for Barca’s Valverde

first_imgBarcelona Villarreal win ‘crucial’ for Barcelona boss Valverde Joe Wright 07:16 12/11/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) lionel messi - cropped Getty Images Barcelona Primera División Ernesto Valverde Villarreal v Barcelona Villarreal The Catalans ended a run of two draws in a row thanks to Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi’s goals, much to the relief of their coach Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde felt Sunday’s 2-0 win at Villarreal could prove vital to their La Liga title hopes.The Catalans went into the game at the Estadio de la Ceramica on the back of consecutive draws in the top flight and having seen Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid all claim three points this weekend.Sixth-place Villarreal proved to be stubborn opponents but Barca eventually wore them down after Raba’s red card in the second half, with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi getting the goals to restore the visitors’ five-point lead at the top.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player And Valverde believes it was a very important time to return to winning ways, with games against Deportivo La Coruna and Real Madrid to come before the end of the year.”It was a crucial and difficult game,” he said, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo. “We had to face a great team on a pitch where it’s difficult to get points.”They gave us a tough game, with problems in circulating the ball and danger on the counter-attack.”We’ve kept up the winning run. We knew our rivals had won but we’re always relying on ourselves. Regardless of rivals having won, before a game, you have to win.

After drawing at home [against Celta Vigo], we wanted to refocus with a victory.”Valverde praised the impact of full-back Jordi Alba, who was once more a dangerous attacking outlet for Barca and linked superbly with Messi throughout.”Alba is one of our weapons,” he said. “Villarreal close down a lot and they stopped the advance of our full-backs. “In the second half, the runs of Jordi Alba were key. He has a really good understanding with Messi and these connections always appear. It’s insurance for the team.”Raba received a straight red card for a lunge on Sergio Busquets near the Barca penalty area, a decision that was argued against furiously by the Villarreal players, but Valverde understood why he was sent off.”I haven’t seen it on TV. I have a feeling that the one who protested the least was the player himself,” he said.”It’s a hard tackle and the referee saw it that way.”last_img read more

StatCan warns of impact on release of trade data from US government

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA — Statistics Canada is warning the partial shutdown of the U.S. government could have an impact on the agency’s ability to release a complete picture of trade between North America’s largest trading partners.Each country has been using the other’s import data to produce its export statistics since 1990.U.S. imports from Canada reported to U.S. Customs and Border Protection are compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau and sent to Statistics Canada to be used as statistics for Canada’s exports to the United States.Data for November won’t be affected by the shutdown which started Dec. 22. However, future months could be affected because data for Canada’s exports to the United States ended with the December numbers.The U.S. is Canada’s most important trading partner, with about 75 per cent of Canada’s total merchandise exports destined for the U.S., while Canada is the top export destination for U.S. goods, accounting for about 18 per cent of total U.S. merchandise exports.The statistics agencies of each country normally publish trade statistics simultaneously on predetermined dates.“The sharing of import data, which is generally preferred because of the greater scrutiny import shipments are subject to by customs agencies, helps to ensure accurate and coherent bilateral trade statistics, while reducing the administrative burden on exporting companies,” Statistics Canada said in a statement Thursday.last_img read more

Delay in alliance with AAP affecting poll campaigning

first_imgNew Delhi: The issue of alliance with the AAP has delayed election campaigning of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee as party workers are confused. The workers are in dilemma, said a senior leader of the party on condition of anonymity. Congress leader said that workers who have been associated with the party for years were in favour of the alliance. But, the situation is not clear so far. They are sitting idle waiting for a decision from the high command. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe workers are reportedly in favour of an alliance with AAP, aware that it will be impossible to win even one of the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi without this understanding. The seat sharing formula that has been discussed by the two parties earlier followed a 3+3+1 formula, with the one being left for a neutral candidate.A senior Congress leader said that the DPCC is divided in two groups — one is led by its president Sheila Dikshit while the other is led by two ex-DPCC presidents and a senior leader of AICC who is active in Delhi politics. Dikshit opposes the alliance while the other group supports it on the ground that alliance is a necessity for defeating the BJP. If it is not done, the BJP will sweep in all seven Lok Sabha seats. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsSources said that four former Delhi Congress presidents — Ajay Maken, Subhash Chopra, Tajdar Babar and Arvinder Singh Lovely favoured an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi.Dikshit’s point of view is that the Congress should contest alone whether it loses or wins. This will encourage the party workers who have been associated with the party for generations. They will work to strengthen the party. The second point is that alliance might damage the party in assembly election also that is to be held next year.In 2013, the Congress had supported the AAP for formation of government. The government had collapsed after 49 days. The second time the Congress could not win even a single seat out of 70 though it had ruled the state for three consecutive terms. The AAP had won 67 seats.last_img read more

Atlanta May Need to Help Finance Sale of Ft McPherson

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Atlanta City Council this week approved extending a $13 million line of credit to the Fort McPherson LRA, allowing the purchase of 330 acres of the post by filmmaker Tyler Perry to go ahead.Mayor Kasim Reed requested the line of credit as a backstop in the event the McPherson Implementing Local Redevelopment Authority (MILRA) is unable to pay the Army the $26 million it is asking for the 488-acre installation.Reed told the council it needed to act with urgency, reported the Atlanta Business Chronicle. “This deal is getting ready to fall apart because of the time it’s taken to get done,” Reed said. “We are at a moment when we need to close,” the mayor said.Perry agreed in August to purchase the property on the southwest edge of Atlanta for $30 million to build up to 16 sound stages. The LRA is scheduled to make a $13 million payment to the Army when it closes on the sale in the coming months, with a second payment of $13 million due in 2018.Perry is expected to pay the authority $20 million this year, and the remaining $10 million after the Army cleans up and releases 22 acres of land that is contaminated. The process that could be completed as early as next year, MILRA Executive Director Brian Hooker told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.If that land is not turned over by 2018, however, the LRA would be forced to rely on the city to cover its final payment to the Army.last_img read more
