SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown helped his party become dominant in California politics during his eight years leading the nation’s most populous state, and less than a month before leaving office, he is predicting it will be difficult for his successor to control Democrats’ hunger for more spending and rules.The leader of California Democrats has kept lawmakers in check by limiting spending on social programs in favour of saving it to protect against a future economic downtown. He sometimes butted heads with legislative leaders, warning spending too much now could hurt taxpayers or require budget cuts later.Democrats hold all statewide offices and expanded their supermajority in the Legislature last month, allowing them to approve tax hikes and virtually any law without Republican support.“I’d say we’re in for contentious times and for too many rules, too many constricting mandates and probably too much spending,” Brown told the Associated Press in an interview Tuesday.He said Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom may have a hard time keeping fellow Democrats in check because “he’s got to please some of these groups enough of the time to still be viable as a political leader.”In the interview, Brown called for more direct discussions about the danger of wildfires to force officials and residents to act, pushed back against critics who say he’s too friendly to oil companies, and chided world leaders for failing to tackle climate change with urgency.He leaves office Jan. 7 after wrapping up a record four terms, first from 1975 to 1983 and again since 2011.The governor’s comments on Democratic priorities reflect the more frugal attitude he brought to Sacramento. He entered office with a $27 billion deficit and leaves a nearly $15 billion rainy day fund and a surplus.Brown, however, has backed his own expensive plans. He used Democratic majorities to pass a controversial gas tax increase for road maintenance and has steadfastly defended a $77 billion project to build a high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco that’s seen repeated delays and cost overruns.While he warned against overspending, he said he expected dissonant voices among the Democratic majority — a result of what he called the party’s greater diversity of people and ideas. Republicans, he said, hold a “slavish adherence” to a limited agenda and President Donald Trump.Brown is leaving office on the heels of the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century. Flames tore through the town of Paradise last month, killing at least 86 people and destroying more than 12,000 homes. He’s blamed climate change for more destructive blazes in recent years and warned things will worsen.The governor called the need to limit building in areas at high risk for wildfires “obvious” but said it’s “politically painful” to implement when people want to rebuild their homes and developers see opportunities.People who choose to live in high-risk areas need to plan escape routes, build cellars and manage vegetation, he said. And the state must provide more information about the true danger of wildfires, he said.“I don’t think governments lay out for people the stark warning: You may die in this particular environment,” Brown said.Wildfires offer Brown an opportunity to call for swifter action against climate change, which is making California drier and more prone to flames. He’s urged action beyond California, working with the U.N., creating a global coalition to reduce climate emissions and holding meetings in China and Russia.He’s working on a climate-focused partnership between the University of California system and Tsinghau University in Beijing he can dive in to when he leaves office, he said. His spokesman Evan Westrup declined to provide more details.Critics say Brown has a blind spot when it comes to oil because he keeps allowing drilling permits and new wells. Brown scoffs at the claims, saying the state’s overall oil production has dropped steadily since the 1980s. He says simply stopping it won’t halt demand. He’s pushed to make electric vehicles more accessible and worked to improve public transit.“The problem is burning oil, consuming it,” he said. “The only way you stop that is electric cars, land use so you don’t have to travel so far and other forms of reducing carbon emissions.”He said climate change advocates still must be careful to not overplay their hand. He pointed to a planned fuel tax in France that led to violent protests. French President Emmanuel Macron early this month backed down on the tax, which critics said would hurt the working class.Brown said Macron didn’t add enough rebates or tax credits to cushion the blow for low-income people.“You have to get the right idea, you have to be careful and nuanced and then you have to be very skilful in the execution, and you can fail in many different ways,” Brown said.In a common theme, he ended the interview with a global wake-up call.“The threat of nuclear annihilation and climate change on a permanent basis looms, and therefore it is time for new leaders to rise up and make the case and mobilize the people for what needs to be done,” he said. “What needs to be done is unprecedented, and therein lies the dilemma.”Kathleen Ronayne, The Associated Press

Rabat – Following their win over Gongo-Brazaville in a friendly game on Friday in Tangier, Moroccan national soccer team players were given two days off by their coach Hervé Renard.However, instead of using this time to rest and prepare for their upcoming official match against Libya on Friday in Tunis, some players went out partying.A picture that has been shared widely on social media shows Bayern Munich defender Mehdi Benatia and Grenada striker Youssef El Arabi smoking hookah, according to Le360. For the past ten years, Morocco’s national soccer team has had a hard time qualifying for major tournaments such as the World Cup and the African Cup of Nations, even though Morocco has had a large pool of talented players.Many observers have attributed the decade-long poor performances of the Moroccan team to lack of discipline and bad habits that are unworthy of world-class professional players.

Students will be paired with specialists to help them choose the appropriate options for a successful future.As one of the most efficient information platforms, the forum’s goal is to help students choose suitable options which are consistent with their preferences.This year’s edition will also gather international and national professional specialists in the labor markets.
Former UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella said several SLFP and UPFA members had contacted the UNP and expressed the desire to contest under the UNP ticket. He said that most of the SLFP and UPFA members who had contacted the UNP are former Parliamentarians. (Colombo Gazette) Several Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members have decided to join the United National Party (UNP) in protest over the reported decision taken by President Maithripala Sirisena to give nominations to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.SLFP Treasurer S.B. Nawinna said that he has already decided to join the UNP to contest the August 17 Parliament election. Meanwhile, several others, including former Parliamentarians Arjuna Ranatunga and Hirunika Premachandra are having discussions with the SLFP leadership to decide their next move.
Sam Hall, senior partner at Hall Brown Family Law, which supplied the figures, said the agreements were serving “a valuable, practical purpose quite apart from that for which they were originally intended”.“As opposed to offering a constructive way of dividing assets should their marriage not last the course, they are highlighting very real and serious differences before a wedding which can actually affect the chances of a couple staying together in the long run.“Some of those with whom we have dealt have initially expressed great regret at what happened but later acknowledged that their break-ups were less upsetting than might have been the case had they divorced,” he said.Joanne Edwards, partner and head of family law at Forsters LLP, said couples should allow enough time to draw up an agreement to minimise the stress and risk of a split.“It is certainly true that couples considering a pre-nup should not under-estimate how difficult the discussions can become and ensure that they allow plenty of time so that neither party feels under pressure to sign,” she said.Different approaches can work for different couples and reduce the possibility of strife, she added.“Solicitors working on pre-nups try to approach matters sensitively and will be guided by each couple as to whether they would sooner sit around a table and discuss matters in the open, or have the lawyers do the negotiations with the clients at arm’s length,” she said.Family lawyers have been campaigning to make pre-nups legally binding, arguing that some couples are put off marrying when they discover that there is no watertight way to set out a financial agreement before marriage.Under current law a prenuptial agreement would be consulted by the courts but can be overturned if one partner successfully argues that it is unfair. A survey published earlier this year by Forsters suggested that two thirds of family lawyers had seen a rise in the number of agreements since 2010.Almost half of those surveyed had taken on more than six new cases in the past year and 13 per cent had taken on 16 or more.An increasing number of those entering the agreements are now between 31 and 45, suggesting that an older average age of marriage is leading to couples with more complex finances who are worried about what could happen in the event of a divorce. According to the Office for National Statistics, the average age at marriage has risen to 34.6 years old for women and 37 years for men.Resolution, the association for family lawyers, is calling for a change in the law to make the agreements legally enforceable.It said that “the unenforceability of pre-nuptial agreements may in fact undermine marriage and lead to people deciding not to marry.” Solicitors working on pre-nups try to approach matters sensitively and will be guided by each couple as to whether they would sooner sit around a table and discuss matters in the openJoanne Edwards, head of family law at Forsters LLP Pre-nuptial agreements are rising in popularity as couples seek to protect family wealth from a potential future split. But figures suggest they could be more trouble than they are worth as almost one in four couples who consider them never actually go through with the wedding.Some lawyers say enquiries about the agreements have risen by as much as 70 per cent over the past decade, but those who look into protecting their wealth can end up killing the marriage before it has even begun.One large law firm said that 21 per cent of engaged couples who enquired about a prenup called off the wedding after speaking to lawyers, and a further three per cent actually drew up the documents before changing their minds about getting married.The figures give some ammunition to sceptics who say the agreements undermine the trust and romance of marriage.But lawyers say the couples who decide to break up would have done so anyway – and it is better for the split to take place before the wedding, rather than after.

Robert Lewandowski is not thinking about leaving Bayern Munich anytime soon, despite being linked with lucrative moves away from the clubThe Polish striker is highly-rated within the football world following an impressive eight years in Germany with both Borussia Dortmund and Bayern.In fact, Lewandowski has scored 190 goals in 273 Bundesliga games and is just another four goals shy of equaling Bayern legend Claudio Pizarro as the league’s fifth-highest scorer.Despite having been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain over the past year, Lewandowski announced he only identifies with Bayern.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“There’s a very good chance I’ll be here for a long time yet,” Lewandowski told Sport Bild.“I’m not thinking about going anywhere else. Since putting the rumours to rest, my heart has been 100 per cent with Bayern.“I fully identify with the club. I could definitely see myself ending my career at Bayern.”Lewandowski, who has already scored 22 goals in 24 appearances across all competitions this season, is contracted at Bayern until 2021.
The cause of a raging fire at 505 N.W. 86th St. has been ruled undetermined, and will stay that way because any evidence that would reveal the cause was destroyed, Ken Hill, a Clark County deputy fire marshal, said Tuesday.Officials said the Monday afternoon fire started in an upstairs bedroom. Hill said the fire in Hazel Dell was definitely accidental.Damage has been estimated at $250,000 to the building and $75,000 to its contents, for a total of $325,000.No people or pets were reported injured.The fire was reported about 5 p.m. Monday and crews arrived to find flames roaring out of two large upstairs windows. Besides attacking the flames, at first from outside and later inside, firefighters kept a hose line spraying a house next door, only 12 to 20 feet from the flames consuming the burning home. As a result, little or no damage was reported to the neighbors’ home.A battalion chief soon called for a second alarm, bringing Vancouver engines and crews to the scene.The owner of the home, Elmer Brown, 64, said he was sitting on a couch watching TV when he heard a smoke detector and alerted his wife, Ardis, and two grandchildren, 8 and 9. Ardis Brown had been using a computer; one grandchild was taking a shower and the other was playing a video game in the dining room.“We all got out as we called 911,” he said. The fire was reported around 5 p.m. and about 40 firefighters from Fire District 6 and Vancouver Fire Department rushed to the scene. The house is near Jason Lee Middle School.“A lot of clutter inside the home fueled the fire and made fighting and investigating it difficult,” said Dawn Johnson, a spokeswoman for Fire District 6.

Heavy rain is forecasted for the Alaska Range. National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Berg said two systems coming together over the state are expected to dump significant moisture on the mountains.Download Audio“We have a low pressure system sitting out on the Gulf of Alaska that’s gonna kinda move North,” Berg said. “And we have high pressure building in the Interior, and what’s gonna happen is it’ll have a convergent area right above the Alaska Range that’ll develop. And with that, a lot of moisture is gonna be pumped in from the South to the Alaska Range and so that’s gonna develop into some heavy rains through the Alaska range through the rest of the week.”Berg said areas to the north of the mountain should largely be shadowed from heavy precipitation.“Most of the Interior should stay out of the rain. We do expect some showers along the north slopes of the Alaska Range, but most likely not as far north as Fairbanks.”Berg noted that Fairbanks is nearing a monthly rainfall record. 3.21 inches of rain has fallen so far this month.
Close Tennis legend Roger Federer’s former coach Paul Annacone says world number one Novak Djokovic is in no-win situation if he gives more explanation on his stance in regards to the Association of Tennis Professionals Executive Chairman and President Chris Kermode’s future.Novak Djokovic is head of the Players Council. The Serbian tennis star wanted Chris Kermode gone by the end of the year. Chris Kermode’s present deal is until 2019. The ATP decided not to extend Chris Kermode’s present deal and will step down after this calendar year.Novak Djokovic had earlier tried to play down the spat with Roger Federer and former world number one Rafael Nadal. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and other tennis star wanted Chris Kermode to continue. They were against Novak Djokovic over this key decision. Paul Annacone only has positive things to speak about Chris Kermode.”I think Djokovic is in a no-win situation if he expands on it. In an environment like this where there is so many politics going on and the business structure, the ATP is very complicated when you have the tournaments on the half of the tour and the players on the other half,” said Paul Annacone, as reported by Tennis World USA.”It is really complicated, there is a tug of war going on, I think Chris Kermode did a terrific job, he had a lot of tremendous initiatives that he pushed forward and now you are gonna be out searching for someone else, so good luck.” Justin Setterfield/Getty ImagesMeanwhile, Novak Djokovic says he is happy to be part of the era with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.”Well, it’s great to be part of this era with Roger and Rafa, without a doubt. It’s definitely one of the greatest eras of tennis. I think every era had something special, rivals and champions that have established themselves as icons of this sport recognized worldwide. We are fortunate to be part of a sport that is very global, that is very popular around the world,” said Novak Djokovic.”You know, just doing what you love and doing it on such a high level consistently throughout so many years obviously brings you nothing but positive emotions and fulfilment. At the same time, you know, you always carry a responsibility.”And you have mentioned, you know, Roger and Rafa and that they have done it so well throughout so many years. I have also learned next to them, you know, being part of the same journey.” Australian Open 2019: Novak Djokovic Wins Final Over Rafael Nadal
Close on the heels of several compilations that listed companies gone bust after the dot com bubble during the onset of the 21st century, a Bengaluru-based start-up analyst firm has come up with the “deadpool list” of start-ups in India.Tracxn has compiled a first of its kind list in India comprising dead or dying start-ups. The list names around 800 weak or dead start-ups spread across e-commerce, mobile technology and online education, among others, as reported by Bloomberg, citing Tracxn’s list. The site, which provides subscription-based information about start-ups, is aimed at investors, recruiters or large firms searching for talent or assets at a cheaper price. Tracxn shortlists companies for the deadpool list based on team size, user traffic and business activity.The idea of tracking start-ups that shut down is not entirely new. Previously, Inc Media reported that 2016 already witnessed 18 start-ups closing down operations by the end of June, whereas the number of start-ups shutting down stood at 14 for the entire year in 2015. The half-yearly report noted that compared to the two halves of 2015, the number of start-up deals in the first half of 2016 remained approximately the same, however, there was a notable 53 percent decline in the deal value or ticket size of deals.Among start-up sectors, while e-commerce start-ups saw a falling trend in funding since the last quarter of 2015, fintech and health start-ups witnessed funding growth.Venture Capitalists are no longer placing big bets. While VC funding in India peaked at $8.9 billion in 2015, investment fell to $2.7 billion during the first two quarters combined in 2016, according to London-based Preqin. This year has seen a spurt in bridge funding, or Pre-Series A funding, while late stage funding recorded a decrease.Rahul Yadav’s Intelligent Interfaces, e-commerce portal Fashionara, e-commerce-based logistics services provider Delivree King, on-demand grocery delivery start-up PepperTap and personal assistant app HelpChat are among the start-ups that closed down this year.Larger start-ups like Flipkart and Ola were seen shutting down some of their divisions. While Flipkart closed its grocery delivery division, Snapdeal shut down its hyperlocal grocery marketplace. Ola also closed down its food and grocery delivery division in 2016.However, not everyone is pessimistic about growth of Indian start-ups. Executives like Girish Mathrubootham of Freshdesk finds opportunity in start-up failures.”We have made six acquisitions and are just initiating the process for our seventh. Dying and regenerating is healthy for any ecosystem,” Mathrubootham was quoted as saying by the news agency.After the dot com burst, US-based F**ked Company was engaged in similarly tracking failed internet companies. The website was later closed in 2007. Another website that provides similar services and analysis on failed start-ups is F**kedupstartups.com. The company offers start-up market analysis, consultancy services and failure analysis for prospective start-up clients.
