Still, we kept forgetting that lesson, optimistically carting Matt off to every soccer camp, basketball camp and tennis camp within a 15-mile radius. Junior lifeguards may have been his only productive experience, but he argued he’d done his time running 3 miles on the beach and deserved to boogie board at leisure. So this year, my husband and I tallied the thousands and thousands of dollars we’ve spent keeping our kids busy and decided, to heck with it. The result: Matt has engaged in a lot of nothing for the past two months. Yet he’s managed to occupy himself throughout, and not only with video games and Dr. Phil. “I’m living a boy’s dream!” he announced, with some hyperbole. OK, let’s review. What Matt did last, which is still this, summer: First, he and his sister spent 10 days in Texas – where relatives treated them to constant dinners out, a colossal water park, two plays, lots of movies, horseback riding, bowling, golf, laser tag and shopping mall sprees. OK, Matt could have done without the shopping mall sprees. He proclaimed Austin his “most fun trip ever.” Two days after their return, our whole family packed up and drove to Lake Havasu, with Matt’s buddy, Ryan, in tow. Lake Havasu is not a destination I would have chosen, especially due to its 130-degree temperature. But a friend owns a house there and we couldn’t pass up his hospitable invitation. Motor-boating past beer-guzzling tailgate partiers along the marina, in the hottest heat I’ve ever felt, I questioned our good sense. But once we were innertubing on the lake, and then anchored by a beach where the kids jumped off rocks and fished in waist-deep water, my worries melted away. Matt proclaimed Lake Havasu his “most fun trip ever.” On the heels of that adventure came a few days with his cousins at their Oxnard beach rental. Matt proclaimed Oxnard one of his “most fun trips ever.” It’s hard to compete with the thrill of clinging to a rope at breakneck speed. Soon thereafter, Matt headed with his buddy Cam’s family to a “resort campground,” El Capitan Canyon, near Santa Barbara – where the boys slept in comfy beds inside a television-equipped tent. Even I could handle that style of camping. They also squeezed in some exposure to nature’s natural wonders, hiking up a hill one night for a magical view of a meteor shower. Matt proclaimed El Capitan his “most fun trip ever.” Now, as his swan song, he’s off to Monterey with two younger boy cousins and a very brave aunt. A little voice inside my head says, Do look back, Matt. You can always look back. Susan Christian Goulding’s column appears Saturdays. She is an award-winning writer and freelance journalist.

You’re all set! What a rude awakening for Mattman, After the boy of summer has gone (back to school). Matt is at that in-between age – in-between sixth and seventh grades, in-between child and teen, in-between goofball and … slowly maturing goofball. A while ago, his parents started to figure out that most summer sports programs are, essentially, day care. Forty boys per baseball coach? Not much polishing of skills going on there. Out on the road today I saw a “Student of the Month” sticker On a Sienna van. A little voice inside my head said,
1 19-year-old Boca Juniors star Rodrigo Bentancur AC Milan are closing in on a deal to land Arsenal target Rodrigo Bentancur.The Gunners have been credited with an interest in the Boca Juniors star, who is also on the radar of Real Madrid and Benfica.However, Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed that it is Milan who are now at the front of the queue to sign him.The Uruguayan, still only 19, has impressed during his 29 league appearances for Boca so far and now looks set to head to Europe.Juventus are said to have first refusal on him, after including the clause in the deal which took Carlos Tevez to Boca last year.However, it has been suggested that Juve are not interested in signing him this summer which could allow Milan to swoop.The Rossoneri are prepared to hand him a deal worth around £1.25million a year, although they are still yet to agree a fee for the £12.5m-rated teenager.
1 Arsenal, Leicester City and West Ham have all been told to forget about signing AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang.The 22-year-old is developing into a key player for the Italian club and he has earned plenty of suitors after his performances this season.Leicester are long-term admirers of the Frenchman, while he has more recently been linked with both Arsenal and West Ham.However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan have told any interested clubs that Niang is not for sale at any price.The Serie A side reportedly view the forward as a key part of their plans going forward and they are in no mood to let him go during the middle of the season.As a result, Arsenal, Leicester City and West Ham will all have to try again in the summer if they wish to lure Niang away from Milan. The 22-year-old is also wanted by Leicester City and West Ham

Sam Allardyce has revealed to talkSPORT it’s ‘very unlikely’ he will take the Huddersfield Town job.Big Sam is the bookmakers’ 3/1 favourite to take over at the John Smith’s Stadium following David Wagner’s surprise departure as manager on Monday.The German, who spent three-and-a-half years in charge of the Terriers, leaves with the club currently sitting rock-bottom of the Premier League table. Wagner leaves Huddersfield bottom of the league and eight points adrift of safety 2 Allardyce would seem the obvious choice to take over, given his previous success at saving clubs from relegation.However, he believes saving Huddersfield – who sit eight points from safety – is too great a task for any manager and isn’t keen on the role. scrap MONEY Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars SORRY predicted Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card gameday cracker Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move REVEALED huge blow Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Most Read In Football Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won REVEALED no dice Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ RANKED Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REPLY Big Sam has never been relegated during his managerial career How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings RANKED 2 “Huddersfield’s trouble is not their performances, it’s a lack of goals and we all know what it means when you have a goalscorer.“I’ve watched a lot of their games and they’ve always been very close, they’re never been thrashed really, but because of the lack of quality in front of goal they’ve ended up drawing instead of winning and losing instead of drawing.

Sue Ann Hankins, age 52 of Jeffersonville, passed away Saturday, April 6, 2019, in Norton Audubon Hospital Louisville.Born November 3, 1966 in Salem, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Ernest Gabe and Imogene (Flannery) Hankins. She was an employee of Blueriver Services in Palmyra and a resident of New Hope Services.Survivors include: Brother: Gerry Hankins of Connersville, Indiana; Sister: Roberta Baldwin of Salem; Nephews: Robert Williams Jr., Ernie Williams and Jonathan Hankins; Nieces: Teresa Poehlein and Kimberlee Hankins and several great nephews and nieces; 4 Aunts: Helen Hisel, who cared for her, Joan Schocke, Barbara Brumfiel, Patsy Hines and many many cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents and 1 brother, Frank Hankins.Funeral Service: 11:00 am Saturday at Dawalt Funeral Home in Salem, followed by interment in Crown Hill Cemetery.Visitation: 4 to 8 pm Friday and 9 am until the time of the service on Saturday.
3 January 2007Since 16 October, all local and national calls from land-lines in South Africa have been using 10-digit numbers (seven-digit numbers preceded by area codes), while the dialling prefix for international calls made from South Africa has changed from 09 to 00.To help customers familiarise themselves with these changes, state telecoms operator Telkom is running the old dialling systems parallel to the new dialling systems up to 16 January, when 10-digit dialling and the international prefix 00 become mandatory.The change to the international dialling prefix means, for example, that a call from South Africa to the United Kingdom should be prefixed by 00 44 instead of the old 09 44.However, there is no change to the dialling procedures for calls to South Africa from overseas.The change from seven to 10-digit dialling means that when land-line to land-line calls are made within the same area (for example, Pretoria), callers should begin by dialling the area code (012, in the case of Pretoria) even though they are calling a number in the same area.“It is identical to a fixed-line call being made from a cellular phone,” explained Lulu Letlape, spokesperson for state telecommunications company Telkom. Since cellular numbers already comprise 10 digits, calls from fixed lines to cellular phones do not require any dialling changes.After 16 January, mis-dialled calls will be routed to announcements requesting that callers dial 10 digits when making local and national calls. This will continue until 16 March, after which mis-dialled calls will be routed to a “number unavailable” tone.Letlape emphasised that no extra costs would be levied for using the 10-digit dialling system or in switching to 00 as the international dialling prefix.“This national 10-digit dialling system is part of Icasa’s [the Independent Communication Authority of South Africa’s] numbering plan that, once implemented, will increase number capacity, especially in the metropolitan areas, and bring fixed-line dialling in line with the 10-digit standard used by mobile operators.”Telkom says PAXB customers who have programmed their PAXB systems for international call barring will need to re-programme their systems to avoid users being able to make unauthorised international outgoing calls.Customers should also check that any pre-programmed diallable local numbers, for example speed dial numbers, are stored in the full 10-digit format.SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
A top Chinese brain scientist wonders how he ended up on the U.S. visa blacklist Rao Yi By Dennis NormileJul. 18, 2018 , 12:10 PM “The U.S. embassy is not afraid of offending people and making enemies,” says Rao Yi of Peking University in Beijing. SHANGHAI, CHINA—Frustrated with a string of unexplained U.S. visa denials, a top Chinese brain scientist has decided to go public, copying numerous journalists on a 17 July email to officials at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing pleading his case.”Most embassies try to make more friends for their countries; the U.S. embassy is not afraid of offending people and making enemies,” says Rao Yi, a high-profile neuroscientist at Peking University in Beijing who studied and worked in the United States for 22 years. His difficulty obtaining a visa is particularly ironic, given that he has been invited to attend a workshop by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), a government agency based in Alexandria, Virginia.Rao, 56, earned his Ph.D. in neuroscience in 1991 from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and did a postdoc at Harvard University. He was on the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri for 10 years and later joined Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois, where he rose to be a full professor. Along the way, he acquired U.S. citizenship. He returned to China in 2007 to become dean of Peking University’s School of Life Sciences. He later gave up his U.S. citizenship.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) Rao says he was still regularly traveling to the United States until he was denied a visa to travel to San Francisco for a reunion with his UCSF lab mates in 2016. Since then, he has failed to get visas to join a conference at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, to attend a memorial service for U.S. banker David Rockefeller, and even to visit his daughter, a U.S. citizen.In addition to his position at Peking University, he is now director of the Chinese Institute for Brain Research in Beijing. NSF invited him to a workshop in Washington, D.C., on 23 and 24 July that aims to develop a Global Inventory of Brain Initiatives to facilitate international coordination.Rao says he had an interview at the U.S. embassy on Monday, during which he was asked to provide an updated CV and travel schedule. He says he has not made flight reservations because his recent experiences leave him doubtful about getting a visa. He says he is puzzled about the visa denials and cannot think of anything he might have done to get blacklisted. He did appear on Chinese TV criticizing U.S. President Donald Trump after the 2016 election, but his first visa rejection predated the election. He says he was once told that the decision was made in Washington, D.C., but was given no further details.The U.S. government began applying tougher restrictions on some Chinese graduate students last month, but the new policy does not apply to senior scientists and does not include the neurosciences.The U.S. embassy in Beijing does not comment on individual visa cases, a spokesperson wrote in an email to ScienceInsider. “I certainly hope that the U.S. will not go down in history as the country which arbitrarily blocks international cooperation in the natural sciences,” Rao wrote in his email plea to embassy officials.
