Batesville, In. — The Indiana Department of Transportation will set concrete barrier wall sections along the right lane of eastbound Interstate 74 at mile marker 153.7, weather permitting, beginning next Monday (NOV 26). The barrier wall will separate workers and equipment from live traffic while efforts are made to correct an embankment slide just west of Western Creek.A geohazard subcontractor will soon be onsite to stabilize the slide area with lengthy steel shafts driven into bedrock. These “soil nails” hold metal gridwork in place that when overcoated with shotcrete forms a stout retaining wall.Eastbound I-74’s right lane and outside shoulder will be closed to traffic at the stabilization site for approximately 30 days.Milestone is the state’s prime contractor for INDOT’s $61 million pavement replacement project of 12.8 miles of I-74 between Exit 143 at New Point and Exit 156 at State Road 101. Geostablization International is the geohazard subcontractor.Once the embankment is stabilized, all I-74 lanes will remain open for winter until Phase III operations begin next spring.
With Dortmund’s score at Gladbach standing at 0-0, Bayern put further pressure on the Frankfurt goal, with Lewandowski having an effort blocked.Bayern’s afternoon almost got even better when Gladbach were within a whisker of going in front against BVB, Ibrahima Traore hitting the bar, and back at the Allianz Arena, Lewandowski came close to setting up another for Coman.The defending champions also thought they had doubled their advantage when Serge Gnabry struck, only for a VAR review to find Lewandowski had been offside in the build-up to the goal.But they continued to sweep forward, Frankfurt’s Jonathan de Guzman diverting the ball against his own crossbar and Trapp saving well from Muller.At Gladbach, Marco Reus curled a free kick over for Dortmund — but with moments to go until half-time, he set up the goal that kept their title chances flickering, a cross falling to Jadon Sancho, who steered the ball high into the net.Half-time came with both contenders in front, but there was drama in the opening stages of the second half in Munich.Frankfurt substitute Sebastien Haller equalised in the early stages after the ball had come back off the bar in a scramble, meaning Bayern and Dortmund were temporarily level on points with Bayern substantially ahead on goal difference.Within moments, Bayern were in front again, David Alaba on target after Trapp had parried from Muller, Dortmund then doubling their advantage as Sancho and Christian Pulisic set up Reus.But after 58 minutes, the title was all but decided when Bayern struck again, Renato Sanches making space and firing through Trapp from an angle to spark huge celebrations.Ribery, on his way in the summer, ended his long and distinguished Bayern career when he replaced Coman, and Robben followed suit as he came on for Gnabry.The Frenchman was soon on the scoresheet, jinking away from a couple of defenders and dinking the ball past the demoralised Trapp.Not to be upstaged, Robben had the final word, tapping in after a low ball into the area had eluded the ragged Frankfurt defence.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Bayern Munich made it seven Bundesliga titles in a row as they saw off Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1 at the Allianz Arena to take the crown by two points from Borussia Dortmund, who won 2-0 at Borussia Monchengladbach.Veterans Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, on as second-half substitutes, both scored in their final Bayern appearances as Niko Kovac’s side recovered from the shock of a Frankfurt equaliser to wrap up the title in emphatic fashion.Bayern needed only four minutes to take the lead, with Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller combining to set up Kingsley Coman to fire beyond Kevin Trapp.
Speculation also surrounds Pogba’s future at Old Trafford after he expressed a desire to leave the club before the start of the season.Real Madrid reportedly remain interested in the man who cost United a then world record £89 million ($117 million) in 2016, but no move is expected to be made in the January transfer window.And Solskjaer denied suggestions it is Pogba’s own medical team rather than the club’s which has suggested to undergo surgery at this time.“We look after our players’ health,” added Solskjaer. “It’s been advised that he should do it as soon as possible.” Pogba out for longerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Paul Pogba will undergo surgery on a recurring ankle injury and is expected to spend another month on the sidelines, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed after his side’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday.The French World Cup winner made his comeback after nearly three months out in a 2-0 defeat at Watford 10 days ago and also made an appearance off the bench in a 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle four days later.“We’ve had scans and it’s nothing major, it’s something that has to be sorted and dealt with. He’s been advised to it as soon as,” said Solskjaer.Pogba has made just six starts in all competitions for United this season and his influence in midfield has been badly missed with United sitting fifth in the Premier League.His latest setback comes at a bad time for Solskjaer with Scott McTominay also sidelined for two months leaving the Norwegian extremely short on midfield options.“It’s a big blow that Paul is out now that Scott’s out, he’ll be out for a few months. Paul will be back within a month.” Share on: WhatsApp

Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Urban Affairs, Stephen Neufville, has cautioned about the dangers solid waste pose to the health and wellbeing of Liberians.As such, Minister Neufville stressed the need for government to seriously pay keen attention to issues relative to the control and management of the waste in the country.“The issue of solid waste is very dangerous to our health, therefore, Liberians must learn to take ownership by tackling and or treating waste issue to help prevent communities from being infected, “Minister Neufville urged.He made the statements on Thursday at a one day National Solid Waste Management Policy Review forum in Monrovia.The forum was organized by the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) with the purpose to ensure that a consultative process is undertaken, and to solicit the views of the public on the document (Draft National Solid Waste Management Policy).He said waste causes serious embarrassment to the growth of every community, and described it as “solid waste matter — a very serious, challenging sanitation problem in communities and the larger society.He also called for collective efforts of all citizens to work with the MIA and MCC to successfully implement the draft National Solid Waste Management Policy Review in the interest and benefit of the country.As of the draft policy document, he said it is intended to guide Liberians on how they manage and treat the issue of solid waste materials in various communities.The document, he added is also intended to address other issues including the medical situation to guide Liberians in combating other economic challenging matters across the country.Minister Neufville said citizens’ participation in such policy is very important, noting that it helps to bring together collective views of Liberians.He said whatever is done with community orientation has an impact on the lives of the citizens.In Liberia, according to him, people are experiencing high urban migration due to overcrowded population in various cities, which he noted, continues to cause setbacks to the living conditions of people in various cities, thereby creating the concern of how to deal with solid waste and other related unsanitary condition that would affect communities.Monrovia City Mayor, Clara Doe Mvogo, called for government support to the MCC to properly control and maintain solid waste, adding that waste management is a major responsibility of governments to provide proper planning between the waste generators and service providers.She said after five years of progressive change in Liberia’s waste management sector, following the preparation of a draft policy report in 2009, MCC continues its efforts to conclude the policy formulation process.MCC, she said is also conducting an assessment of the solid waste management sector performance in three other cities including Gbarnga, Ganta and Buchanan to ensure a holistic approach in the policy formulation process and to enrich the sanitation analysis of the sector for inclusion in the final document.She said the solid waste management policy shall therefore provide a broad framework for the implementation of national objectives and build synergies with existing policies and legal instruments governing issues of waste management in the country.Mayor Mvogo used the occasion to thank the World Bank, UNDP, ILO and others for their technical support provided to improve the sector in the country.The forum brought together Superintendents, City Mayors, and representatives of Civil Society Organizations among others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

I would love to have him.”Once Wade completes the waiver formality, he’ll be the latest new, high-profile player to join the Cavs, who traded for All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas, signed former league MVP Derrick Rose and added two strong wing defenders in Jae Crowder and Jeff Green, wing players who may help them defend the Warriors if those teams get back to a fourth straight Finals matchup.Thomas isn’t expected to play until January because of a hip injury, but until he returns the Cavs have plenty of firepower in James, Wade, Rose and All-Star Kevin Love, who could thrive as Cleveland’s No. 2 scoring threat now that Kyrie Irving is in Boston.Wade agreed to a contract buyout earlier this week with the Bulls, who signed him before last season as a free agent.The Cavaliers emerged Tuesday as front-runners over the Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder to land the 35-year-old Wade, who many feel say has plenty of game left.ADVERTISEMENT He’ll now have a shot at another championship — his fourth — while playing alongside James, whom he has been friends with since they broke into the league together in 2003. When James left Cleveland as a free agent in 2010 and signed with Miami, much of his reason for leaving his home state was a chance to play with Wade and Chris Both.Wade played his first 13 seasons in Miami, leaving in the summer of 2016 to sign a two-year deal with the Bulls. But the Bulls are in a rebuilding mode after trading Jimmy Butler this summer, and instead of paying Wade $23.8 million to play for what will likely be a struggling team they agreed this weekend to buy him out and let him find a better situation.In an interview with AP, Wade said that whatever decision he makes would be “a pure basketball decision and I’ll make the one that I feel fits me best at this point in my career and with what I feel I have to offer a team that needs what I have to offer.”Following practice on Tuesday, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson said Wade would be a “great” fit in Cleveland.“He’s a guy that’s proven, not just individually, but a team that won three championships,” Thompson said. “He’s pretty familiar with most of the guys on our team. … He’s always been a good locker room guy. We’ve never heard anything bad.“It would be great for our team to have another championship-mentality player.”Wade has averaged 23.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 14 seasons. He averaged 18.3, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the Bulls.One of the game’s premiere closers in the postseason, Wade has averaged 22.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 172 playoff games. Wade, a 12-time All-Star, is expected to clear waivers on Wednesday and then join the Cavs, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be completed until Wade goes through the waiver process.In Cleveland, Wade will be reunited with James, his close friend, former Miami teammate and a player he confided in before signing with his hometown Chicago Bulls last year.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWade and James won two NBA titles together during four seasons with the Heat and will now chase another one with the Cavs, who have been revamped after losing to Golden State in last season’s Finals.On Monday, James said he would “love” to play again with Wade.

She spoke at today’s ‘Super Session’ on Lessons Learned Across the Globe. Mechael presented a David Letterman-like top ten list for the mHealth community to help us avoid duplicating work. This notion was repeated in many sessions today. With so many existing and new players in the mHealth field, we do not want to reinvent the wheel and we definitely do not want to reinvent a broken wheel! Mechael made the important point that we all need to capitalize on what others have already done and learned in the mobile health arena. Here is her list or “ten commandments of mHealth” as many are calling it:10. We must unpack the pathways to mobile behavior change and evaluate the impact that mobile technology is really making on health. Let’s answer the question: How are mobile phones changing health-related behavior?9. We need to tease out locally generated content and focus on local context. We need a down up model not top down. Messages need to be indigenously created.8. Let’s move away from a user-satisfaction focus and evaluate the health outcomes. This is the only way to sustain mHealth programs—create targets and benchmarks at the beginning of program creation.7. We must be realistic and become practical about what really works/what doesn’t—integrate mobile technology realistically.6. Let’s invest in participatory design programs—work with who it will impact. We should invest in local developers, designers.5. Let’s take a systems-thinking approach and think about adjacent fields which will be affected in our programs. We need to avoid single-issue thinking—packaging together services will help.4. Collaborate don’t compete—it is not about whose app is best—we all need to win and benefit.3. Recyle, reuse, and repurpose2. mHealth at scale can only come from a leadership linked to local health priorties, that then link to tools.….and the number 1 lesson for the mHealth community:1. It’s not all about technology—its not one system. It’s about a state of health and wellbeing. We’re all impacted. Let’s work together.Share this:

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Sunday asked the Congress where were the well-wishers of farmers during 2012-17 when they faced starvation. The chief minister posed the query shortly after Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra launched a blistering attack on the UP government over alleged unpaid dues to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore to sugarcane farmers. “When our government was formed, the pending cane dues were around Rs 57,800 crore. The amount was bigger than the budgets of many states. But we paid it,” asserted Adityanath. “In the previous regimes of the SP and BSP, nothing was done for the sugarcane farmers, (and) as a result, they died of starvation (bhukhmari),” he added. Earlier during the day, Priyanka Gandhi had attacked the state government over the alleged unpaid dues of sugarcane farmers, claiming in a tweet that ‘chowkidars’ (watchmen) were only working for the rich, not for the poor. The UP chief minister struck back and asked, “Where were the so-called well-wishers of the farmers from 2012 to 2017, when the farmers were on the brink of starvation. Why have they woken up from their slumber now?” Seeking to put the records straight, he said, “The sugarcane cultivation area in the state has increased by 22 per cent to 28 lakh hectare, and a number of closed sugar mills have been restarted. The farmers are happy (khushaal) now.” Sharing a media report on Twitter, Priyanka Gandhi had claimed that dues of sugarcane farmers had crossed Rs 10,000 crore in the state. “The families of sugarcane farmers toil day and night but the Uttar Pradesh government does not even take the responsibility of paying their dues,” she had said. “Rs 10,000 crore of farmers’ dues means everything, including their children’s education, food, health, and the next produce comes to a standstill. These chowkidars only work for the rich and do not care about the poor,” she had claimed. Priyanka Gandhi was recently appointed the Congress general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh.
