LOCAL-based horses have been guaranteed 10 spots for the December 5 Diamond Mile at Caymanas Park, worth $13.5m, the richest-ever horse racing purse in the Caribbean.Racing secretary, Denzil Miller, said the other six spots, if filled, would comprise horses from Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, whether West Indies-bred or imported runners.”There are 10 guaranteed spots for local-based horses, based on earnings, so it’s not an invitational,” Miller confirmed, adding that the Jamaican reserved spots were for local and overseas-bred horses.Racing authorities in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, Miller said, would determine who they send to Jamaica for the Diamond Mile, “very much as how we nominate and decide who we send to the Caribbean Classic”, he explained.Hoping to attract as many entries as possible, Miller has kept the door open for owners from Jamaica, as well as Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, to import horses specifically for the race.However, a two-kilo penalty has been put in place for horses not domicile in participating countries for four months. Therefore, imported horses landing in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados less than four months before the race would carry 59.0 kilos.”Imported horses domicile in the Caribbean for four months would carry 57.0 kilos, native-bred four-year-olds and upwards, 55.0; three-year-olds, 53.0; and, of course, sex allowance would be in it as well,” he explained.Asked whether two kilos was sufficient penalty for foreign-bred invaders hunting a rich payday, especially horses coming from other islands, considering the rich purse is being dangled as a carrot to improve the local bloodstock, Miller said it was a measured risk.”It was one of the things we thought about when doing the conditions for the race but that’s what you are faced with when opening a race like this to get the best horses possible,” he said.
SAUGUS – Volunteers will plant 70 new trees today and give away 1,000 more at the 18th annual Arbor Day celebration at Santa Clarita Central Park. The city-sponsored event, held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., serves to educate people about the benefits of trees. Festivities will include live entertainment, food, tree-planting activities, children’s events, workshops on creating compost and coffee-grounds garden mulch, a tree-pruning demonstration and lots of environmental exhibitions. In honor of the city’s 20th anniversary, the Arbor Day event hosts will raffle off two 20-inch talking Smokey Bear stuffed animals provided by the U.S. Forest Service, a quilt made by the Santa Clarita Quilt Club, a handmade wood carving knife and more. Volunteers will give away 1,000 trees and 1,000 bags of tree mulch to those in attendance, as well as 20 free garden gourmet bins to the first 20 people who sign up and attend the compost workshops. Activities for children will include a large slide, bounce house, rock wall, face painting, flower potting, crafts, a 65-foot inflatable obstacle course and fingerprinting for kids provided by the Optimist Club. “The city is dedicated to keeping the Santa Clarita Valley a clean and beautiful place to live. That’s why it’s so important to show residents how important trees are to our community and to give them the knowledge they need to care for the environment,” said city arborist Robert Sartain. The Arbor Day celebration is put on by the city’s Neighborhood Leaf Out Program, which is part of the city’s Urban Forestry Division. Central Park is at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus.

Clarkson was killed by a bullet fired from a gun inside her mouth. The defense contended in the lengthy trial that she had many personal problems and killed herself either by accident or suicide. Spector was a producer of hit rock music records decades ago, creating what became known as the “Wall of Sound” recording technique. Clarkson had modest success as the star of Roger Corman’s 1985 cult film “Barbarian Queen.” She was working as a hostess at the House of Blues when she met Spector and went home with him after work, just hours before she died.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Just set the case aside for the rest of the day,” the judge told them. A defense request for a mistrial was denied by the judge on grounds that three jurors indicated that further instructions may help. Spector is charged with second-degree murder, and the judge previously ruled that the panel would only decide that charge and not consider possible lesser charges such as manslaughter. The judge, however, told the attorneys that he was reconsidering and believed he might have cause to instruct the jury to consider involuntary manslaughter. Spector, 67, is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 3, 2003, gunshot death of actress Lana Clarkson, 40. The case went to the jury on Sept. 10. The foreman of the jury in Phil Spector’s murder trial told the judge Tuesday that the panel was at a 7-5 impasse but did not indicate which way it was leaning. “At this time I don’t believe that anything else will change the positions of the jurors,” the foreman said when Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler asked if there was anything he could do to help. Polled individually, some jurors agreed with the foreman and others disagreed. One suggested further instruction about reasonable doubt. The judge, amid discussions with lawyers, told the jury he wanted them to take a break and sent them home with instructions to return Wednesday, possibly for more instructions or to have the lawyers re-argue part of the case.

Yacine Adli is set to become the first signing of the Unai Emery era at Arsenal, according to reports.Adli, the France youth international, will link up with Emery for a second time, leaving the Spanish manager’s former club Paris Saint-Germain to sign for Arsenal.The 17-year-old attacking midfield is considered one of the brightest prospects in French football, and he was voted PSG’s academy player of the year last season. However, he has only ever made a single first-team appearance for Paris, and he has rejected their latest contract offer, according to L’Equipe.Adli will instead join Arsenal on a three-year contract with the option for a further two years, and will become Emery’s first signing since succeeding Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.Arsenal are also set to complete the signings of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus, and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, the Borussia Dortmund centre-half, for a reported £16m. Adli made his senior debut against Caen 1

Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Follow the Puck Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… A recent research report revealed major declines in the global smartwatch market, raising fears that these wearables are continuing their downward spiral.In the report, research firm International Data Corp. (IDC) found that the worldwide smartwatch market saw significant declines from last year.IDC found that volumes of shipped smartwatches fell nearly 52% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same period last year.However, the researchers noted that the alarming figures were exacerbated by a boost in 2015 from the Apple Watch’s first major retail availability. Also the second generation of the Apple Watch was only out for the final two weeks of the comparable quarter in 2016, which added to the negative results.“The sharp decline in smartwatch shipment volumes reflects the way platforms and vendors are realigning,” said IDC research leader Ramon Llamas. “Apple revealed a new look and feel to watchOS that did not arrive until the launch of the second generation watch at the end of September.”IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker recorded that total smartwatch volumes in Q3 of 2016 reached 2.7 million units shipped, representing a decrease of 51.6% from the Q3 2015 shipments of 5.6 million units.It’s not just AppleBesides the Apple timing issues, Llamas also noted the impact of other smartwatch makers on the shipment numbers.“Google’s decision to hold back Android Wear 2.0 has repercussions for its OEM partners as to whether to launch devices before or after the holidays,” adds Llamas. “Samsung’s Gear S3, announced at IFA in September, has yet to be released. Collectively, this left vendors relying on older, aging devices to satisfy customers.”The declines are raising alarm bells among industry watchers who have been tracking disappointing numbers for the consumer wearables for some time.“It has also become evident that at present smartwatches are not for everyone,” said IDC senior research analyst Jitesh Ubrani.Ubrani says that the smartwatch segment is undergoing a broader recalibration in relation to smartphones and fitness applications.“Having a clear purpose and use case is paramount, hence many vendors are focusing on fitness due to its simplicity,” he says. “However, moving forward, differentiating the experience of a smartwatch from the smartphone will be key and we’re starting to see early signs of this as cellular integration is rising and as the commercial audience begins to pilot these devices.” Donal Power Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Android#Apple Watch#Google#IoT#Samsung#smartwatch#wearables
Goa Director General of Police Muktesh Chander on Thursday cautioned against downloading content from Pakistan-based websites, which he said were compromised and trying to obtain user information.Mr. Chander, who is also a cybersecurity expert, was delivering a keynote address at a seminar on ‘Cyber Security for Industry’ in Panaji. “One cannot nab Pakistan-based elements who explode bombs in India and it is far more difficult to nab Pakistanis who indulge in copyright violation of music,” Mr. Chander said. Mr. Chander, who has served as Centre Director of the Cyber Division of National Technical Research Centre, which functions under the aegis of the Prime Minister’s Office, said that the songs.pk website promotes a compromised Chinese-made browser to glean information from a user’s phone. He also warned against excessive use of devices like Alexa and others promoted by Amazon and Google, because of their “potential to snoop on people’s lives.”
