For our second welcome in 2018, we helped community and sports clubs open their facilities along the course and invite the community.

This allowed us to create many “mini fan zones” to watch the race on TV and live, and also helped organizations reach new audiences.

Many of them still hold morning coffees to bring seniors together in their community following the initial event.

Key things to consider

However, engagement does not happen overnight and you will need to plan and prepare well in advance of the event to maximize impact.

Try to make this as transparent as possible and remove what we call “mud”.

Mud is anything that makes it difficult to get into your club or activities, or is a potential barrier to people’s participation.

This can be as simple as outdated contact numbers on your website or promotional material using highly technical language that is difficult to understand.

Organizations will also need to be prepared for the expected influx of new members, which will require you to plan months in advance.

Many of these big events are planned years in advance, so get involved in the discussions early because you’ll have to replicate them.

Think about:

  • train and develop volunteers ahead of the event
  • how you organize the initiation sessions – consider giving free tasters
  • have a welcoming face to meet and welcome new participants and members.

The hardest step for someone coming to an activity for the first time is the first step, and you need to make it as easy as possible.

As council officers, we need to think about our role in this process, plan alongside our clubs and community groups, and where possible fund the training of volunteers and free up other resources to help grassroots organizations.

For example, in Doncaster, we have developed a very simple micro-grants program which has enabled us to support 33 groups (11,000 people), many of whom were previously unengaged, and help them engage in TDY and UCI Road World Championships.

To help clubs, professionals and event organisers, Get Doncaster Moving is about to launch the GAMEPLAN book, which brings together all our learnings into one easy to use guide.

The Mahabodhi Temple, site of the Buddha’s enlightenment https://golfclashgemmes.com/the-mahabodhi-temple-site-of-the-buddhas-enlightenment/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 17:26:42 +0000 https://golfclashgemmes.com/the-mahabodhi-temple-site-of-the-buddhas-enlightenment/ The temple is located in Bodh Gaya, in India’s northeast state of Bihar, which borders Nepal.

The temple is located in Bodh Gaya, in India’s northeast state of Bihar, which borders Nepal. Buddhist history says that it was here that the Buddha sat in meditation under a pipal (religious ficus), called the Bodhi Tree, until he achieved enlightenment. Historians don’t know exactly when the Buddha lived, but the enlightenment probably happened at the end of the 5th century BCE, more or less.

According to Buddhist history, the first Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya was built by Emperor Ashoka, a patron of Buddhism who ruled most of what is now India and much more from around 269 ​​BCE to 232 BCE. The stump of an Ashoka pillar is still there. This temple may have been replaced in the 1st or 2nd century CE. The present temple probably dates from the 5th or 6th century CE and remains one of the oldest brick structures in India.

A long stagnation

Although Buddhism began in India, from around the 6th century CE, it began a gradual decline. By the 12th century, most of what was left of Buddhism on the Indian subcontinent was concentrated in three large monasteries in what is now the Indian state of Bihar and two others located on the lower Ganges in what is now Bangladesh. These were all destroyed by invading Turkish armies in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. There may have been a few Buddhists in Bodh Gaya until the 15th century, but not after.

Although the memory of the Mahabodhi temple and the importance of Bodh Gaya have been lost in India, they have not been forgotten in other countries where Buddhism flourished.

A chance discovery

Dr Francis Buchanan (1762-1829; sometimes Dr Francis Buchanan-Hamilton) was a Scottish surgeon and amateur botanist who spent many years in India and South East Asia. At one time, Buchanan was part of a diplomatic expedition to Burma, now called Myanmar. In 1797, as part of his work in Burma, he published an essay entitled On the religion and literature of the Burmese. The essay contains what is believed to be the earliest use of the English construction Buddhism.

Buchanan then spent time in Nepal, mostly cataloging native plants. Nepal was predominantly Hindu, but Buchanan realized that the Newar people of the Kathmandu Valley employed symbolisms similar to those of the Buddhists of Burma. He proposed that there is a connection between Newar and Burmese religions.

In 1811, this same Dr. Francis Buchanan and a few assistants were traveling in northeast India when they came across the ruins of an ancient temple. The ruins were inhabited by a group of Hindu ascetics who did not know of its origins. But Buchanan acknowledged that the temple’s weathered stone carvings included images of the Buddha, very similar to what he had seen in Burma.

Then came the British Orientalists

At the time Buchanan made his discovery, India was ruled by Muslim rulers from Mughal Empire since the 16th century. But the British East India Company had moved in, building factories and trading posts and establishing communities of British expatriates. By the time Buchanan discovered the ruins of the Mahabodhi Temple, the East India Company was the real power in India. And many British expats in India were genuinely interested in learning about India’s history and culture.

These Orientalists, as they were called, realized that India must have had an ancient history, but the Indians themselves seemed to know nothing of anything that had happened before the Mughals. Eventually, some Westerners learned to read Sanskrit and were able to read ancient texts themselves. They also consulted classical Greek texts on India from the time of Alexander the Great, and very slowly a long lost history of ancient India began to emerge.

A British diplomat in Nepal named Brian Hodgson (1800-1894) made enormous contributions to the understanding of early Buddhist history and its origins in India. Largely due to his work, Westerners finally understood the meaning of the Buddha. And they realized the significance of the Mahabodhi Temple as marking the place of Buddha’s enlightenment.

The restored Mahabodhi Temple

In 1857, a revolt against the East India Company caused the British government to intervene and take direct control of India. This marked the end of the Mughal Empire and the beginning of the british raj. In the 1880s, the British colonial government of India decided to restore the Mahabodhi Temple, in response to complaints about its deplorable condition. The government turned to Sir Alexander Cunningham (1814-1893), a British army engineer, to lead this effort.

Cunningham’s excavations found remains of earlier temples, including some of the original temples built by Ashoka. Among other long-lost items, he located the Vajrasana, or “Diamond Throne”, a carved stone slab which is said to have been placed by Ashoka on the very spot where, according to him, the Buddha must have meditated. He also replaced the dying Bodhi tree with a sapling of the same plant, and it is the tree that stands there today.

Yet there was still work to be done. In 1885, the British poet Sir Edwin Arnold published a series of articles on the Mahabodhi Temple which brought more attention to the site. Asian Buddhists have begun to speak out, including Anagarika Dharmapala (1864-1933), a Buddhist activist from British Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) who also helped start an independence movement. Dharmapala campaigned for the temple to be returned to Buddhist control, a demand which was met with resistance from Hindu clergy. Many Hindus had come to regard the Buddha as an incarnation of Vishnu, and they also regarded Mahabodhi as their temple, especially since a sect of Hinduism had been using it since the Buddhists had abandoned it.

A difficult compromise

After India gained independence from the UK in 1947, the Mahabodhi temple complex became the responsibility of the Bihar state government. Bihar has established a management committee consisting of five Hindus (including the chairman) and four Buddhists. The Bodh Gaya Temple Management Committee is still in charge today, although in 2013 the policy was changed to allow the Gaya District Magistrate to act as chairman even if he is not a Hindu . There is also an advisory committee which includes representatives of Buddhism from several other countries.

This arrangement has never satisfied most Buddhists, who want total control and want Hindu symbols, such as depictions of Vishnu and Shiva, removed from the temple. The controversy is ongoing.

Terrorist attacks

In July 2013, a series of ten bombs exploded around Mahabodhi. The temple and the Bodhi tree were not damaged. Five people, including two Buddhist monks, were injured. Three other bombs planted in the area were discovered and defused. Eventually, members of a Muslim group, the Indian Mujahideen, were arrested and found guilty of the attack. Another bomb attack was attempted in 2018, while His Holiness the Dalai Lama was in Bodh Gaya. It is possible that His Holiness was the target. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries or damage. Those convicted of the bombing were members of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh, also a Muslim group.

The temple today

The temple is now a Unesco World Heritage. According to UNESCO, the current temple is one of the oldest and most imposing structures built entirely of brick from the Gupta period. The temple complex covers nearly 12 acres; the main pyramidal temple is 180 feet high. Next to the temple is a huge pipal (the one planted by Sir Alexander Cunningham in the 19th century) believed to be a direct descendant of the Buddha’s Bodhi tree.

It’s time to pass a federal anti-SLAPP law to protect online speakers https://golfclashgemmes.com/its-time-to-pass-a-federal-anti-slapp-law-to-protect-online-speakers/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 19:47:51 +0000 https://golfclashgemmes.com/its-time-to-pass-a-federal-anti-slapp-law-to-protect-online-speakers/ Our country’s fair and independent courts exist to resolve serious disputes.

Our country’s fair and independent courts exist to resolve serious disputes. Unfortunately, some parties abuse the civil litigation process to silence the rhetoric of others, rather than resolving legitimate claims. These types of lawsuits have been dubbed strategic public participation lawsuits, or SLAPPs, and they have increased in recent decades.

Plaintiffs who bring SLAPPs intend to use the high cost of litigation to harass, intimidate and silence critics against them. A deep-pocketed plaintiff who files a SLAPP need not win the case on the merits – putting financial pressure on a defendant, as well as the stress and time it takes to defend a case, they can take away a person’s free speech rights.

Fortunately, a bill introduced in Congress today, the SLAPP Protection Act 2022is intended to deter vexatious plaintiffs from filing these types of lawsuits in federal court.

TAKE ACTION

TELL CONGRESS TO PASS A FEDERAL ANTI-SLAPP BILL

To end lawsuits that seek to harass people into silence, we need strong anti-gag laws. When people are sued for speaking out on a matter of public interest, effective anti-SLAPP legislation allows for prompt review by a judge. If the case is determined to be a SLAPP, the lawsuit is dismissed and the SLAPP victim can recover their legal costs.

During the last years, more states have passed new anti-SLAPP laws or reinforced those that already exist. These state protections are effective against litigation in state court, but they do not protect those sued in federal court.

Now, a bill has been introduced that would make real progress in stopping SLAPPs in federal court. The SLAPP Protection Act 2022 [add bill number if you can] will provide strong protections for almost any speaker discussing matters of public interest. The SLAPP Protection Act also creates a process that will allow most SLAPP victims in federal court to have their legal costs paid by the people filing the SLAPP lawsuits. (Here is our blog post and letter supporting the last federal anti-SLAPP bill that was introduced over seven years ago.)

“Wealthy and powerful corporations are dragging citizens into baseless and costly litigation, to expose anyone who dares stand up to them to financial and personal ruin,” said the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) during a audience yesterday in which he announced the bill.

SLAPPs all around

SLAPP lawsuits in federal courts are increasingly being used to target online activists and critics. Here are some recent examples:

Coal Ash Company sued environmental activists

In 2016, activists in Uniontown, Alabama – an impoverished, predominantly black city with a median per capita income of around $8,000 –were sued for $30 million by a Georgia-based company who put dangerous coal ash in the Uniontown residential landfill. The activists were sued for statements on their website and Facebook page, which said things like the discharge “has affected our daily life” and “You can’t walk outside and you can’t breathe”. The plaintiff settled the case after the ACLU stepped in to defend the activist group.

Shiva Ayyadurai sued a tech blog that reported it

In 2016, tech blog Techdirt published articles challenging Shiva Ayyadurai’s claim to have “invented email”. Techdirt founder Mike Masnick has been hit with a $15 million defamation lawsuit in federal court. Masnick fought back in court and his reporting remains online, but the legal fees have had a significant effect on his business.

Logging company sued Greenpeace

In 2016, the environmental association Greenpeace was sued along with several individual activists by Resolute Forest Products. Resolved sued for blog statements such as Greenpeace’s claim that Resolute logging was “bad news for the climate.” (After four years of litigation, Resolute was ordered to pay nearly $1 million in costs to Greenpeace, as a judge ruled that California’s strong anti-SLAPP law should apply.)

A pipeline company sued environmental activists

In 2017, Greenpeace, Rainforest Action, the Sierra Club and other environmental groups were sued by Energy Transfer Partner because they opposed the Dakota Access Pipeline project. Energy transfer said that the activists’ tweets, among other communications, constituted a “fraudulent scheme” and that the oil company should be able to sue them under RICO anti-racketeering laws, which were meant to tackle organized crime.

A congressman continued his criticism on Twitter

In 2019, anonymous Twitter accounts have been prosecuted by Rep Devin Nunes, then a congressman representing parts of central California. Nunes has filed lawsuits in an attempt to expose and punish two Twitter users who used the names @DevinNunesMom and @DevinCow to criticize his actions as a politician. Nunes filed those actions in state court in Henrico County, Virginia. The location had little connection to the case, but the lack of anti-SLAPP law in Virginia drew many plaintiffs there.

The same congressman sued the media for reporting on him

Over the next few years, Nunes has sued numerous other journalists who have published articles critical of her, using state and federal courts to sue CNN, the Washington Post, her local newspaper, the Fresno Bee, and NBC.

Rapid SLAPP relief

The SLAPP Protection Act meets the EFF criteria for a strong anti-SLAPP law. This would be a powerful tool for defendants stricken by a federal lawsuit seeking to strip them of their free speech rights. If the bill passes, any defendant prosecuted for speaking out on a matter of public interest would be allowed to file a special motion to dismiss, which will be decided within 90 days. If the court grants the speaker’s motion, the claims are dismissed. In many situations, speakers who prevail on an anti-SLAPP motion will be entitled to their legal costs.

The bill also will not reduce the protections provided by state anti-SLAPP laws. So, in cases where state law may be as good or even stronger, the current bill will become a floor, not a ceiling, on the rights of SLAPP defendants.

The EFF has been defending the rights of online speakers for more than 30 years. A strong federal anti-SLAPP law will bring us closer to the vision of an Internet that empowers anyone to speak up and organize for change, especially when speaking out against those with more power and power. resources. Anti-SLAPP laws strengthen the rights of all. We hope that Congress will soon pass the SLAPP Protection Act.

Shenzhen, China, September 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, a popular Australian video blogger, Amy, visited the home of one of the China most famous teas, Tieguanyin. Amy’s video was shot on location in the tea fields and manufacturing plant of Bama Tea Co., Ltd. (known as ‘Bama’ or ‘Bama Tea’) in Anxi County, Fujian Province. In the video, Bama Tea showed how modern technology is revolutionizing the millennial tradition of tea making. So far, the video has attracted tens of thousands of viewers seeking to understand the Chinese tea industry and modern smart garden management methodologies.

Throughout the video, modern technology is used at every stage of tea growing and manufacturing in the fields and factory in Bama to ensure consistent product quality and efficiency.

The Bama Tea field manager showed Amy some of the automation involved in the fields and production, including high-powered cameras that could monitor the status of the tea fields remotely, as well as a weather station which could measure precipitation, sunlight, air quality, soil temperature and humidity. Amy also noticed small solar panels scattered around the fields that charge power during the day and emit blue light at night to ward off pests.

Along with the high degree of monitoring and pest prevention in the fields, automation is a major component of tea processing. For impurity removal, the Bama Tea factory uses a fully automatic infrared grade sorting system with electrostatic roller impurity removal equipment and a metal detector to help effectively remove trace impurities in raw tea and produce a higher quality product.

A large number of intelligent robots are used in tea packaging and transportation to save labor and time while reducing contact between human hands and tea.

Speaking about the use of technology, Amy remarked: “I find it so fascinating because the concept of tea has existed in China for more than 1000 years without much change here or there. But, over the past few decades, with new technologies and advances in science, things have definitely changed for the better.”

Viewers in the comments section also revealed their surprise at the level of automation, with one commenting “So informative and eye-opening to see how high tech China tea factories are and robots are commonly used in the production line”, and another noting “It is good to see how China succeeded in applying technology to improve lives.”

Bama Tea is one of the most recognized brands associated with Tieguanyin tea and was founded by the legendary Wang Wenli, a 13th generation Tieguanyin tea heir. As China’s leading tea chain brand, Bama already has more than 2,600 stores in China of the December 31, 2021with Anxi Tieguanyin, one of Bama’s leading products, leading sales across the country for 13 consecutive years.

In Story of the ‘Jing, we examine the history and tales of our beautiful city and how they inform the capital as we know it today.


Beijing in the 21st century has no shortage of historical sites worth exploring for an afternoon. The current iteration of the Chinese capital dates back at least 600 years, or 700, depending on your opinion of Mongolian cultural and aesthetic contributions to urban planning. Since many of the most popular contemporary tourist attractions were those once controlled exclusively by the imperial court, despite their antiquity, it wasn’t until the last century that ordinary people (not to mention random foreigners) had access to the historic city parks and palaces. .

The agreement that led to the abdication of the last Qing dynasty emperor on February 12, 1912 included a caveat that the young monarch could continue to reside in at least part of his family’s former Forbidden City. While Puyi lived in the back hall of the palace, distinguished visitors and those with money for a ticket could visit a “Gallery of Imperial Antiquities”, which opened in 1914. A decade later, the lord Feng Yuxiang expelled the unfortunate former emperor and his family from the palace grounds. On October 10, 1925, a grand ceremony inaugurating the new Palace Museum was held in front of the Gate of Heavenly Purity, once the dividing line between the outer courtyard and the private inner estate of the imperial family. The Palace Museum of the Forbidden City celebrates its centenary in 2025, and plans are already underway for a series of special exhibitions to mark the occasion.

Other sites in the former imperial city, including many gardens surrounding the palace, were also opened to the public after the end of the dynasty. The Altar of Grain and Soil, located southwest of the Forbidden City, was opened as “Central Park” in 1914, one of the first former Imperial sites to become an entirely public park. In 1928, the name was changed to “Zhongshan Park” to honor revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen (commonly known in Mandarin as Sun Zhongshan) who died in Beijing in 1925. Opposite Zhongshan Park, across the gate Tiananmen, the ancient The ancestral temple complex opened in 1924 as “Peace Park” before receiving its current name, “Beijing Workers’ Cultural Palace”, on May 1, 1950.

Access to Beihai Park was more limited. It was turned into a park in 1925 but was often closed to the public depending on the needs of the municipality and, later, the central government. It was reopened in 1978 and remains one of the most visited former imperial gardens in the city. Nearby Jingshan Park, famous for its 360 degree views of the city, was opened as a park in 1928 under the then newly established Palace Museum.

Without an emperor, there was little need to maintain the altars and other ritual spaces of the Temple of Heaven. Yuan Shikai, provisional president of the Republic of China but with an eye towards a more permanent position, made the last imperial sacrifices at the Temple of Heaven in 1913. Yuan died in 1916, his imperial ambitions in tatters, and the Temple of Heaven opened to the public in 1918.

The Summer Palace is another former imperial space that has since become a popular tourist attraction. The gardens, known in Chinese as Yiheyuan, were rebuilt in the 19th century after being destroyed by the 1860 Anglo-French Expedition at the end of the Second Opium War. After the end of the Qing dynasty, there had been a plan to eventually move the last emperor from the Forbidden City to the Summer Palace once proper renovations had been carried out. In 1914, the Imperial Family allowed the Summer Palace to be open to visitors, hoping that ticket sales could cover some of the cost of maintenance and reconstruction. Puyi’s expulsion from the Forbidden City also meant the end of the former imperial family’s control over the Summer Palace. The Beijing municipal government converted the space into a public park in 1924.

While many sites in Beijing were opened to the public during the Republican period, few remained consistently accessible throughout the 20th century. There were long periods – particularly in the 1960s and 1970s – when old historic spaces were either closed for protection or reallocated to modern uses, including as police stations, warehouses, factories, schools and community centers. Prince Gong’s Mansion, near Qianhai, served as part school, barracks and air-conditioning factory before undergoing a complete makeover and welcoming the public from 1996. The Confucian Temple and Academy imperial temple housed the collection of the Beijing Capital Museum until 2006. One form or another of the Dongyue Temple has stood in its present location along outer Chaoyangmen Street for more than 700 years, but in the 20th century the site was handed over to a number of official (and unofficial) offices and organizations before which was left of the complex received a much-needed facelift and began re-admitting visitors in 1999 (it is currently closed for another round renovations).

It’s easy to take for granted the access we have to Beijing’s past or the care with which many of these sites are currently maintained, preserved, renovated and rebuilt. While many historic places no longer exist (or only exist during imperial times), efforts to open up Beijing’s history to the world have allowed residents and visitors to experience a bit of the grandeur and the majesty of the city. imperial past.

Europe is looking at healthy gas inventory levels ahead of winter, with reservoirs reaching over 80% capacity almost two months ahead of schedule. In Asia, the anticipation of the return of the Chinese aeronautical industry should stimulate the demand for jet fuel. Meanwhile, S&P Global Commodity Insights editors are also watching Turkish rebar prices, California’s power demand, India’s rice export policy and US aromatics stocks.

1. EU gas storage hits November target ahead of schedule





What is happening? EU gas stocks exceeded 84 billion m3 on 29 August with gas tanks in the region are now more than 80% full, according to the GIE AGSI. The initial target, adopted following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, was for gas storage sites to be filled to at least 80% capacity by November 1.


And after? EU gas reservoirs could overflow by the end of October if net injections of gas across the EU continue at the current high rate, and could still reach almost 90% of capacity before November if net injections into storage approach five-year average rates. Maintaining net injections at a high level could prove challenging, with key factors to monitor including the level of Norwegian gas flows to Europe, LNG arrivals and any unlikely increase in Russian gas flows through the Nord Stream gas pipeline or via the Ukrainian transit route. .

2. Asian jet fuel demand is expected to rebound strongly in 2023



Kero Jet Fuel Application


What is happening? The aviation sector continues to normalize, but the recovery has been uneven across regions. Asia has lagged, particularly in the first half of the year, mainly due to China’s intermittent lockdowns as it sticks to its “zero momentum” COVID-19 policy. Airlines in the region carried a combined total of 11.3 million international passengers in July, according to the Association of Asia-Pacific Airlines, surpassing the 10 million mark for the first time since February 2020. this, the number of passengers was still 66% lower. compared to the corresponding pre-pandemic month.


And after? Kerosene/jet should be the main driver of global oil demand in 2022, contributing a third of the growth, as countries open their borders to international visitors. With a return in the second half of the year, Asia is expected to account for 18% of global kerose/jet demand growth this year before jumping to 63% in 2023 with China back in the picture. However, even with this growth, jet fuel/kerosene demand in Asia in 2023 will still be around 17% lower than in 2019, as the full recovery of international and leisure travel takes time.

3. Turkish rebar bids jump after 50% energy cost hike



Turkish Rebar Offers


What is happening? Turkish rebar producers sharply increased their export offers by $20-40/mt on September 1 in reaction to recent increases of at least 50% in gas and electricity prices, which to their tower have driven up the cost of smelting scrap metal to produce steel via electricity. arc furnace route. New rebar export offers were raised to a minimum of $685/t FOB Turkey. No increase in buying activity was observed following the increase in supply. The situation also pushes Turkish producers to seek to reduce other input costs.


And after? With energy costs not expected to drop any time soon and scrap prices remaining firm, Turkish factories are expected to stick to their higher rebar offers for some time to avoid serious erosion of the margins. Rebar export demand, which has been very sluggish recently, needs to pick up for higher bids to gain traction. Without improved finished steel sales and high input costs, Turkish steelmakers may be forced to implement further production cuts.

4. What California’s ICE Car Ban Could Mean to Fuel Demand



Electric Vehicle Adoption in California


What is happening? The California Air Resources Board voted Aug. 25 on the Advanced Clean Cars II project, banning the sale of new internal combustion engine passenger vehicles in the state by 2035. The regulations begin by requiring that 35% of sales of new vehicles are zero emissions in MY 2026 with an interim target of 68% for MY 2030. 100% in-state sales of new zero-emission passenger cars and trucks by 2035.


And after? This decision can reduce the ICE on-road fleet by nearly 5 million vehicles and add more than 14 million electric vehicles to the state’s vehicle fleet if the 100% ZEV sales goal is met. The targets will help build certainty around previously announced greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, particularly in the transportation sector, but will increase demand on the California power grid.

5. Indian rice market confused as government continues to mull over export restrictions



Rating of Platts Indian broken rice year-to-date


What is happening? Buyers are pulling out of India’s rice market amid conflicting reports citing unnamed government sources on the country’s rice export policy. Speculation has been circulating for months, but a recent report said the government is planning to ban exports of broken rice. Platts Indian 100% broken white rice closed Sept. 2 priced unchanged for the week at $325/ton FOB.


And after? Participants will be eagerly watching for updates on the pace of sowing of kharif or main season crops, which have been affected by sporadic rains, fueling speculation over the ban. As of August 26, planted area totaled 36.8 million hectares, 7.4% below average, according to government data.

6. US aromatics prices are under further downward pressure



U.S. Gulf Coast Aromatics


What is happening? U.S. aromatics producers on the Gulf Coast fought hard against falling prices due to weaker demand for blends that appeared to affect other octane boosters as well. Prices for toluene and mixed xylenes peaked in June, surpassing pre-pandemic levels, but fell sharply as the summer driving season draws to a close. Inventories stood at 196.1 million barrels in the week ended August 26, the lowest level since the start of the year, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration.


And after? Any upward movement in toluene and mixed xylene prices should be limited. The higher reid vapor pressure gasoline production season has begun, favoring other blending components. There could be pockets of opportunity to increase aromatics inventories, but prices could fall further if demand does not meet accumulated supply.

I used Visible since May 2021, and I must confess that I love it. For $25 a month, I got unlimited calls, texts, and most importantly, data. It made me rethink the way I use the internet on my phone because I no longer monitor how much data I use. You basically use the phone as if you were on WiFi, like allow Google Photos to upload original image sizes or upload podcast or massive stream Vudu Where Amazon Premier.

The best part is the price, you can tether or use your phone as a Hotspotso that another device can use the Internet (for example, my iPad or laptop).

This does not mean that Visible (a division of Verizon) does not have their problems and problems. I mentioned that this is entirely a “do it yourself” service, if you need tech support, you’re out of luck.

Still, if you set it up, I think $25 for unlimited phone service is an amazing deal. You’re not going to see that kind of low price from a phone company.

So, bad news.

One of the main things I liked about Visible was their Party payment option, which gives you a $15 discount, if you are part of a large group. Think “Family Plan”, but no part is tied to you. Visible will be removing the Party Pay option on October 18, 2022, as they are introducing two phone options: a regular service ($30) and a “plus” service ($45).

Look, even an increase to $30 (a $5 increase for me) I think is fine, as long as the service stays the same. I’m afraid the $30 is a lower version of the “plus” service, that’s what I’m afraid…which means the service will be a $20 increase for me if I need this service” more”. $5 is acceptable, $20 is not for me.

You can read about it on their website:

Existing members will need to get a new SIM card to take advantage of all these features. All new and existing members must update their device software before activating their new Visible or Visible+ plan. Devices currently certified for use with Visible services, including our new plans, are listed in the compatibility checker.

Face-to-face education is important in helping students realize their potential.

During school time, we believe that students should be in class with their teachers and peers and enjoy all the benefits that brings.

Parents or guardians of a child have a legal responsibility to ensure that their child receives an appropriate education. This is usually achieved through regular school attendance.

Here you will find everything you need to know about school attendance.

Why is regular attendance so important?

Being at school every day it is open is important for your child’s success, well-being and development.

With millions of students expected to return to schools and colleges over the next few days, there will be a renewed focus on maximizing students’ time in the classroom, as evidence shows that the most diligent pupils throughout their schooling achieve the best results at GCSE and A Level.

Here’s what the data shows:

  • High performing students in KS2 and KS4 had lower levels of absence during the milestone than those with lower levels.
  • Pupils who did not reach the expected level in reading, writing and mathematics in 2019 have an overall absenteeism rate of 4.7% on the key stage, compared to 3.5% among pupils who reached the expected level and 2.7% among those who have reached the higher level.
  • Pupils who did not reach Years 9-4 of the English and Maths GCSEs in 2019 had an overall absenteeism rate of 8.8% on the key stage, compared to 5.2% among pupils with reached a 4th grade and 3.7% among students who reached 9th to 5 in English and maths.
  • Generally, the higher the percentage of missed sessions in the milestone at KS2 and KS4, the lower the level of success at the end of the milestone.
  • Among the pupils who did not miss any session during KS2, 83.9% reached the expected level, compared to 40.2% of the pupils who were constantly absent.
  • Of students who did not miss a session beyond KS4, 83.7% reached grades 9-4 in English and Maths, compared to 35.6% of students who were consistently absent.

There are only a few circumstances in which it is permissible to miss a day of school.

When can my child be absent from school?

When you enroll your child in school, you have a legal obligation to ensure that your child regularly attends that school.

This means that your child must be present every day the school is open, unless:

  • Your child is too sick to come that day.
  • You have requested in advance and received permission from the school for your child to be absent that day due to exceptional circumstances.
  • Your child cannot go to school on this day because it is a day when you participate in a religious practice
  • Your local authority is responsible for arranging transport for your child to school and it is not available that day or has not yet been provided; Where
  • You are a family of gypsies/travellers with no fixed address and you have to travel for work that day, which means that your child cannot go to his usual school. In most cases, however, your child is required to temporarily attend another school during these absences.

These are the only circumstances where schools can allow your child to be absent.

What should I do if my child has to be absent from school for one of these reasons?

You should contact their school as soon as possible to explain why. If not, your child’s school will contact you on the first morning of their absence to find out the reason.

All parents can apply for a “leave of absence” for their child which gives them permission to be absent from school. Leave must be requested before your child is absent and will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.

Your child’s headteacher has the final say on whether to approve the request and the length of your child’s absence.

Their decision will be made after consideration of the specific facts and circumstances giving rise to your request.

Can I take my child on vacation during school holidays?

Parents should plan their holidays around school holidays and avoid asking for vacation time off unless unavoidable.

As leave is only granted in exceptional circumstances, it is unlikely that your child’s headteacher will agree to leave for a family holiday.

If permission is refused and you take your child away from school on the days requested, you are likely to commit an offense and be penalized by a fixed fine or be prosecuted by your municipality.

Where can I get help to help my child go to school?

Children can struggle to go to school for a wide variety of reasons.

If your child is struggling to attend school, their school and your local authority also have a responsibility to help you support your child’s attendance.

In most cases, if your child’s attendance level drops, their school will contact you to explore the reasons and discuss what support may be in place to help you overcome the barriers they are facing.

If your child is having trouble going to school, you can expect the school to meet you and your child if they are old enough. The school will want to understand the reasons for their absence and what support you or they need to overcome any barriers to attendance they are having.

If the barriers to your child’s attendance are at school – such as if they have friendship issues – the school is responsible for working with you to help overcome the issues.

Information about who to contact at the school for help, including the school’s senior attendance officer, can be found in the school’s attendance policy on its website or are available in hard copy from the school itself.

If the barriers to attendance you or your child are facing are beyond the school’s remit – such as a transportation or mental health issue – the school and local authorities have a responsibility to help. This includes helping you access wider support you may need, for example from the school nurse or local housing or transport teams.

As part of the conversation you will have with your child’s school, you will agree on a common set of actions that you will all take to help overcome barriers to attendance.

This agreement will often include a commitment to refer you or help you access support services in exchange for your agreement to engage and participate in the support offered. They will also arrange mutually convenient times for you to get together to review this progress and your child’s progress.

This agreement can take the form of an informal action plan, an early support plan or a parental contract – depending on the complexity of the reasons for your child’s absence.

What else are you doing to combat unauthorized absences?

We’re launching a three-year 1-2-1 Attendance Mentorship pilot starting this quarter, aimed at addressing factors that cause absenteeism, such as bullying or mental health issues .

It is launching in Middlesborough this year, before rolling out to other parts of the country next year. The pilot project will provide personalized support to more than 1,600 consistently and severely absent students over the three-year period.

Schools, academies, local authorities and government will also have access to a powerful new attendance data visualization tool which is also being launched to help spot and troubleshoot issues.

This data supports the launch of the new National Interactive Attendance Dashboard alongside the release of the first comprehensive bi-monthly attendance data of the quarter. This is expected later in September and will provide continued transparency and vastly improved potential for understanding and analyzing daily, weekly and quarterly trends.

The majority of schools now share daily register data with the department, where it is aggregated and presented in dashboards to schools, academies and local authorities.

This makes it easier for teachers to analyze attendance, making it easier to spot problems with individual students or groups such as children receiving free school meals, for example.

All eyes are on Cardiff, Wales this Saturday, September 3 for WWE’s Clash at the Castle event.

The latest Clash at the Castle odds of 2022 suggest it should be a big night of action at the Principality Stadium, as WWE’s roadshow lands on Welsh soil.

It is the first major pay-per-view event in the UK since SummerSlam 1992 at Wembley Stadium. And I’ll be making my Clash at the Castle 2022 picks to try and get you some money on fights.

First, here’s an overview of where to bet on the event featuring Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre.

WWE Castle Clash

If the odds for WWE Clash at the Castle are interesting, I would consider thinking about where to bet.

Of course, you want a safe and secure site. It’s number one on the agenda. But it would help if you also asked for the best Clash 2022 odds and markets at the castle, as well as a chance to take advantage of the best bonuses and promotions around.

Our WWE betting experts suggest the following sites for betting on Saturday’s event. They tick all the boxes needed to be considered the best wrestling game sites and should see you well for any fight on the map.

Betting odds for the 2022 Castle Clash

  • Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman (-225) vs Drew McIntyre (+150)
  • Liv Morgan (-300) vs. Shayna Baszler (+185)
  • Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka (+300) vs. Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (-500)
  • Riddle (+130) vs. Seth “Freakin” Rollins (-180)
  • Gunther with Ludwig Kaiser (-450) vs. Sheamus with The Brawling Brutes (+250)

Before we get to my predictions and match picks for Castle Clash 2022, let’s take a look at these odds.

I suspect the one most fans will be looking to bet on is Reigns vs. McIntrye.

BetOnline are offering -225 on Reins to beat the Scot in Cardiff this Saturday. You can get +150 on McIntyre for stealing the show and giving many of his traveling compatriots something to celebrate on the way back north.

It’s always a good idea to compare the latest WWE odds, so be sure to look at prices for other fights at top US sportsbooks. Or those in your region or jurisdiction if you are not in the United States.

Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman vs. Drew McIntyre

Clash at the Castle 2022 predictions should start with the main event.

The short prediction is that it will be an absolute blast. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Reigns will be a 733-day champion in this fight. Since winning the belt by handing Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman a loss at Payback in August 2020, he seemed unstoppable.

Does McIntrye have what it takes to stop WWE’s record king?

Absolutely. Although it would take a brave person to pick the Scotsman in their 2022 Clash at the Castle picks, the bookies see this one as anything but a foregone conclusion.

Do you?

Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler

Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler

Morgan’s Clash at the Castle in 2022 makes her a strong favorite to defeat Baszler in Cardiff.

Fans who follow Morgan’s arc will know all about his talent. Ever since she inflicted a defeat on Ronda Rousey to signify the SmackDown title, things haven’t gone as smoothly as she would have liked. But another win over Rousey at SummerSlam gives her a solid foundation to work from.

Baszler might be one of the most intriguing sleepers in Clash at the Castle. But even the most optimistic selectors of WWE’s top YouTube betting channels aren’t entirely convinced of his chances.

Meanwhile, Baszler has returned to her past NXT form, shrugged off the SmackDown Women’s Division, and now has her sights set on claiming her first women’s title on the main roster.

Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, and Asuka vs. Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky

Another popular selection to consider when browsing Clash at the Castle 2022 betting odds.

This team match of six women is necessarily one of the highlights of the evening. Bayley is looking to make another significant mark in the pro wrestling world by following her superb return to the ring at SummerSlam.

The role model brought Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky with him, and they’ll be back as a faction.

Can Belair and company stop him? If you’re considering taking a small bet in 2022 Clash at the Castle, you could do worse than aim for a fight involving the RAW Women’s Champion.

Riddle vs. Seth “Freakin” Rollins

Seth Rollin

Riddle and Seth Rollins are about to collide. Still.

No Clash at the Castle 2022 betting overview is complete without highlighting the importance of this feud. Nor the length, which goes back as far as I can remember.

These two have spoken about their rivalry, and this match should finally see things come to fruition. It might be even more compelling if you plan to place bets on this match at top WWE betting sites.

Rollins is a slight favorite and looks likely to prove why the bookies are right to give him the lead.

Gunther with Ludwig Kaiser vs. Sheamus with The Brawling Brutes

I expect some of the best Clash at the Castle prop bets of 2022 to be found in this fight. Well, that’s when bookmakers come to publish those odds, of course.

I mean, at Gunther, we have a fighter who fought his way to an Intercontinental Championship after an impressive undefeated run. In Sheamus, a cunning veteran who can cause shock.

This one should be a classic.

2022 Clash at the Castle Predictions

Let’s cut the suspense and jump straight into my Clash at the Castle 2022 predictions.

Drew McIntrye

  • Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman to beat Drew McIntyre (-225)
  • Shayna Baszler beats Liv Morgan (+185)
  • Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky defeat Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka (-500)
  • Seth “Freakin” Rollins beats Riddle (-180)
  • Gunther with Ludwig Kaiser to beat Sheamus with The Brawling Brutes (-450)

As you can see, I like Roman Reigns and Shayna Baszler to win both major fights of the night.

From there, I see things going pretty much as the betting odds suggest. The six-woman tag team match is expected to go to Bayley and company, with Rollins and Gunther also expected to win in their respective scraps.

But again, it’s up to you to decide what you want to bet on.

WWE Castle Clash best bets for 2022

Roman reigns

  • Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman to beat Drew McIntyre (-225)
  • Seth “Freakin” Rollins beats Riddle (-180)
  • Shayna Baszler beats Liv Morgan (+185)

The ratings for Clash at the Castle in 2022 look just about perfect. Although I think the price of Baszler is very attractive.

At +185, I’ll take her all day and twice on a Sunday to get out of her fight with Morgan as champion. There is little to lose by taking this bet, given the value of the bets on offer.

Even if you disagree, you can’t say a double with Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins is a bad idea. These two should come out on top, with Reigns likely undervalued due to McIntrye’s fights on British soil.

Betting on WWE’s Clash at the Castle in 2022

This is my almost complete Clash at the Castle 2022 betting preview. We’ve covered everything you need to know about betting on this weekend’s fights, and I’m confident you’re good to go.

Clash at the Castle 2022 odds are available for comparison between our recommended WWE betting apps.

One of the best things about buying lines is finding more favorable odds. But when using an app, there are other benefits to consider. For example, in-play betting markets and cash-out feature, depending on where you bet.

Whether you’re watching from the Principality or from home, it’s not a bad idea to give yourself one more string to your bow.

Good luck!

For many reasons, knowing when to cash out at casinos is the golden rule of gambling.

This can prevent major losses and protect your winnings from being clawed back by the house. Plus, it can help with good discipline when playing your favorite games.

Becoming adept at determining when to cash out at the casino is not a gift. It’s more of a skill. And like anything skill-based, it usually comes from learned behaviors. Or experience.

If you’re looking to up your game in this department, the following tips will help.

5. Adjust your expectations at online casinos

I have some solid tips to help you better assess when to cash out at land-based casinos.

But what about the online side of things? While it’s true that the process of withdrawing your money from the best online casinos shouldn’t cause you a lot of headaches, there are still some things you need to be aware of. Something that could determine when you get your money.

Some of my tips for when to leave casinos can still apply when playing online. But when you play at sites and casinos from your phone or desktop computer, you will have a major advantage over players at physical establishments.

That is, the ability to set limits on what you deposit, spend and how much you can lose.

These self-imposed restrictions can apply to an amount covering a day, a week, a month or, in some cases, even a year.

This feature can be found in our recommended casinos. This is something you have to configure yourself from your profile. But you can also ask customer support to do this on your behalf.

Now, I wouldn’t recommend asking an agent, “When is it time to withdraw money from the casino?” Instead, let them know that you want to set limits and for how long.

Playing online certainly takes a lot of the hassle out of the equation. But only if you use the best. I recommend that you register on one of the sites below. But do not hesitate to consult our expert opinions before opening an account!

4. Always keep an eye on your bankroll

As someone who once had a piece of cash in my pocket one minute, only to have the invisible man steal it from under my nose the next, I’ve certainly acquired a taste for a sensible attitude.

Of course, the Invisible Man didn’t attack me. I lost it. Why? Because I didn’t watch what I had. A lot of it had to do with me being young, stupid, and carefree. Three things a man with an alarming amount of gray hair migrating to the top of his head shouldn’t be.

I’ve learned over the years that the best time to leave casinos is when you initially said you would.

Look, I don’t think getting up and heading for the doors is easy.

I could be up $2,000 or down $4,000. It does not matter. I could still hear my brain pushing me to talk about thrash like Muhammad Ali to George Foreman at Rumble in the Jungle.

“Is that all you got, George?” They told me you could bet!

Although claiming the voice of “The Greatest” might be enough to get you locked up in some countries, rest assured, I’m only joking. My name is not George.

Nevertheless, I’m sure you experienced players understand what I mean. At the casino, impulses – including the desire to show off to potential friends, beat the house, or recoup all your lost money in a Hail Mary shot – will usually see you leaving the casino as Foreman left the ring. this night.

5 Ways to Stop Delusions of Grandeur at the Casino

Let’s get this straight: thinking you can fly or that you’re the real king of Denmark are examples of what psychologists call delusions of grandeur. But the phrase is less formally applied to much less serious cases these days, including acts of…

How to counter this? Keep track of what you bring into the casino and anything you withdraw while you’re there. Over time, you will become adept at knowing when to leave the casino.

You can’t understand when it’s time to die without knowing where you are. So keep an eye on yourself at all times and rely on our bankroll management guide.

3. Meet all set loss limits

poker chips

When is it time to leave the casino? Maybe when you’ve lost everything?

Not necessarily. I mean, you could be a multi-millionaire and head to the craps tables with $5. If you lose, you walk. Conversely, you could be a regular Joe or Joanne hitting the slots with a bankroll in the thousands that will go when it runs out.

Ideally, you want to know your limits before playing. This means identifying a magic number and sticking to it. Naturally, this is the last element that most find difficult to buy into. The same can be said for anyone playing online. And then you had a hard time getting your hands on the winnings.

Naturally, loss limits come in all sizes.

Take the infamous Archie Karas, who managed to lose $40 million of his fortune. It is not necessary to have a particular amount in mind, as our finances and circumstances differ. Sometimes you might not even hit the magic number at all if you were lucky – more on that in the next section.

There’s no point in learning to know when to leave the casino if you’re not sure what kind of player you are. If you find it quite easy to get up and walk around, there may be room for floating limits for losses and gains. But if you’re a player who struggles to stick to predefined floors and caps, don’t tempt fate.

You can always read how much money you need to bring to the casino. The next piece lays it out pretty well.

Money limit for your next casino visit – How much is too much?

How much money should you bring to a casino? Why, all this is how much. All the money you are willing to lose is. Ah, but that’s not all your money, is it? Of course not. Nobody’s crazy enough to “bet it all, sleep in…

2. Create an earnings limit and stick to it

A smart bettor should have a good understanding of when to withdraw money from casinos.

But the higher level player knows when it’s time to get on the horse and leave town, though it might surprise you to learn that the brightest among us don’t just care about heading for the exit when they have lost enough.

No no. They also set limits on how much they win when anticipating when to cash out at casinos.

Imagine it that way. You ask: “When is it time to withdraw money from the casino?” If so, you may feel that he is ready to reach the spiral staircase at a good profit.

But along the way, you come across your favorite slot machine. You put $20 in, for the good old days, but you lose it. Pretty soon you are fully engaged in the game and have lost both your winnings and your initial bankroll.

If you set concrete win limits of $250, playing other games on the floor would have been a no-no. You wouldn’t have hacked your winnings in any way.

If you had used a floating win limit, you might have awarded up to $50 in winnings, but no more. But again, it is not easy to stick to any form of betting limits when they are conditional. I would suggest 100% adherence to the set numbers and leave it at that.

1. Know your intentions

Chess

Nothing is simple because the best time to withdraw money from the casino depends on the intentions of the player.

There are many reasons one might go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas. Sometimes it’s to make money. Other times it’s just for a little fun. Therefore, when to withdraw money from casinos will depend on the strategy or when the party stops.

Before setting foot in a gambling den, you need to set your expectations versus your intentions. If you’re a professional gambler, managing your bankroll will ultimately come down to what you should be spending.

If you’re in Vegas for Brian’s bachelor party, you’re unlikely to engage in massive blackjack sessions.

Either way, you still need to be careful.

Entering a casino drunk and with no limits on what you spend might work well for a tiny percentage of players. But for most, it could lead to big losses.

Use common sense to know when to withdraw money from casinos

Don’t ask another player, “When is it time to leave the casino?” Not when you haven’t been home for three days.

Common sense would tell you it’s probably time to go.

When to withdraw money from the casino depends on your situation, but most of us have to work. Or feed the dog. If something is wrong, stop to think. Take a short walk and ask the attendant to hold your machine, if necessary.

I also recommend that you read anything you don’t understand. For example, these easy casino withdrawal tips are always good to know!
