Half-time: Chelsea 1 Southampton 1

first_imgWillian’s early free-kick was cancelled out by Steven Davis’s excellent strike as Southampton battled back at Stamford Bridge.Chelsea went in front on 10 minutes when Willian floated the ball beyond the massed ranks inside the box and the flailing keeper Maarten Stekelenburg.It was the Brazilian’s fourth goal of the season, all from set-pieces, and bore a striking resemblance to his strike against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League.Chelsea, with captain John Terry recalled to the defence, showed high energy levels from the off and pressed Southampton high up the field.Oscar and Fabregas produced intricate work on the left-hand edge of the box but the Brazilian’s attempted scoop was plucked out of the air by Stekelenburg.But Southampton gradually worked their way into the match and referee Bobby Madley denied Southampton appeals for a penalty when Sadio Mane appeared to be tripped by Ramires.Shortly afterwards, the Saints winger was booked for diving after going over Branislav Ivanovic’s leg just outside the box.Chelsea were grateful to Asmir Begovic for preserving their lead, as he blocked at his near post to deny former Blues left-back Ryan Bertrand.But Begovic was left helpless by Davis’s strike from distance as he latched on to Graziano Pelle’s knock down.Chelsea: Begovic; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Falcao. Subs from: Blackman, Zouma, Baba, Matic, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Remy.Southampton: Stekelenburg; Cedric, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand; Wanyama, Romeu; Mane, Davis, Tadic; Pelle.

The Military Child’s Experience: Part One

first_imgUS Coast Guard families and service members march in New York City’s Veterans Day Parade (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Seaman Robert Harclerode) CC by 2.0The MFLN Family Development Early Intervention team brings you an interview with Kellie, a young woman who grew up as a military child.  She is currently a college student pursuing a degree in early childhood.  Look for Part Two of her interview on July 27.  This interview has been edited for length and clarity.What are some of your favorite memories of being a military child?A favorite memory I have is seeing new places. It is so cool to be able to relate to so many places now and claim a little bit of everywhere that I have lived as home. I also loved moving, because you get a new house and room every time. There was always something new to explore, and that’s how I made my memories, just by exploring new places. Everywhere I have lived has become a memory but also has shaped me into who I am today.What, if anything, was challenging?The most challenging part about being a military child was not knowing what you were going to find. For instance, every time you moved you found yourself in a new school, with new teachers, new classmates, the list goes on and on. With so much “new” thrown at you all at once, it can be difficult to adjust. I was able to learn how to adjust with practice and it really helped me throughout my college years. My flexibility is one of my strongest leadership traits.Was your parent deployed while you were a child? How frequently?I was lucky compared to most military children. My dad is going on 30 years of active duty service but was only deployed one time for six months. It was hard but I am so glad he never had to deploy again.What did your parent(s) tell you about their deployment?I remember my parents telling me that my dad would be leaving to go overseas for a few months. They told me what he would be doing so I wasn’t very nervous. I was proud of my dad for serving our country.How far in advance were you informed?As soon as my dad knew for sure that he was being deployed, he told all of us. I don’t remember it being a big deal, I just knew it was something he had to do and that he would come back. I know it was something my family expected since he left less than two years after 9/11. At that time so many people were getting deployed.What would you suggest to other parents that need to prepare their children for an impending deployment?Make sure you let the children know what is going on. I was lucky enough that my dad was not in battle, so it was much less likely that something would go wrong, and it was easier for my parents to assure me that it was going to be okay. It is a hard situation to explain to children and it is important to let the children know that their parents are serving our country and making it better. My dad is a hero to me, and knowing that made it easier to understand why he was gone.Be honest with your kids, give them as much time as possible to know a parent is deploying before he/she leaves, and give them comfort, because regardless it is not going to be easy.What were some of you concerns while your parent was deployed and what strategies did you use to manage these concerns?I was really young, so it was hard to understand all of the risks. I saw my mom upset sometimes, and didn’t quite understand that because I was so young. I know that my concerns mostly had to do with missing him and not really knowing when he would be back. I tried to think of the positives rather than the negative things that could happen. I was only in 4th grade, but I stayed busy, which made me less worried.How can parents support their children through all phases of a deployment (pre, during, and post)?Honesty is the most important aspect of support. Before a parent leaves, make sure to focus on the time you have with them before they leave, not on the fact that they are leaving.While they are gone, don’t hide your feelings from your children, because they are there to comfort you just as much as you are there to comfort them.Be open as a family while a parent is deployed and discuss your feelings. Your family is truly your greatest support system.When a parent finally comes home, make it a celebration, because as hard as it may have been to be away from each other, the most important thing is that they are home and safe.This post was edited by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Amy Santos, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.

Indian Man Pleads Guilty to Visa Fraud Using Social Network Platforms

first_imgAn Indian citizen has pleaded guilty to operating a scam using Facebook and WhatsApp to defraud people seeking visas to the United States.Kanwar Sarabjit Singh (aka Sandy Singh), 51, made use of the social network platforms to falsely represent himself as an employee of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who worked in the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. He told the victims that he could obtain genuine United States visas in exchange for a fee of $3,000 to $4,000, the statement added. As part of his fraud scheme, Singh created a fake photo identification document purporting to be from DHS, which he emailed to others in an effort to show them that he was able to obtain U.S. immigration documents. Singh asked interested candidates to send him all their credentials, including passport photographs, copies of their passports and other personally identifying information, along with bank details to transfer to him the amount within a day or so.  Upon receiving the credentials and the asked fee, Singh generated and emailed fraudulent letters purporting to be from the U.S. embassy in New Delhi, India, which falsely claimed that there was an appointment to pick up the requested visa documents.  Singh pleaded guilty to wire fraud and impersonation of a federal officer on Sept. 10. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 14.  Besides the visa fraud scheme, Singh admitted to his direct involvement in an investment fraud scheme in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in 2012, in which he defrauded 22 investors of approximately $340,000, the justice department’s statement added. As per the court documents, after gaining the trust of the local pastor and his church, including elderly members, Singh convinced them that he owned a small company in India that provided labor for services, including data entry, to two large, international companies and that for a small, up-front investment, they would see a large return on their money. Earlier this month, Harvinder Kaur Thethi, an Indian-origin woman, was sentenced to five years in prison for posing as an immigration lawyer and duping vulnerable people of big amounts in name of immigration-related services. She obtained £68,000 from victims, promising them immigration-related services which were never delivered. Related ItemsUnited Statesvisa fraudlast_img read more

Remaining Western Seasonal Road Gates To Open

first_imgAll remaining gates on seasonal roads on the province’s western Crown land will be opened Monday, May 12, at noon, for motorized vehicle access. The province has already opened seasonal road gates in the St. Margarets Bay and East River areas because roadbeds there had hardened enough to accept the weight of vehicles. Now, all seasonal roads in the western region are ready. There may still be wet sections, so caution is advised. Gates leading to protected wilderness areas will stay closed. A map of the seasonal forest roads on western Crown land showing opened and closed gates is available at www.novascotia.ca/natr . The road gates on all western Crown lands formerly owned by Bowater were closed to motorized vehicles in April to protect the roadbeds and as a safety precaution to protect vehicle drivers. Damage can be expensive to repair and vehicles can get stuck in remote wooded areas where cellphone coverage is weak and personal safety could be at risk.last_img read more
