SAN DIEGO — When the Giants named Farhan Zaidi the franchise’s president of baseball operations last November, Zaidi was immediately afforded the luxury of time.Ownership did not expect him to build a winning product overnight, giving Zaidi the flexibility to take chances on bargain additions over the winter instead of pursuing high-dollar, high-profile targets.As the calendar turns to July, time is no longer on Zaidi’s side.The Giants enter the month with a 36-47 record and a farm system …

There’s no funding associated with the program but like most accelerators, it culminates in a pitch day where each team gets to present to potential investors.“This is an exciting time for education entrepreneurism,” says Diana Rhoten, Start’s co-founder. “The first year of our collaboration with DreamIt Ventures graduated a cohort of four companies, two of which have gone on to receive further outside funding.” Noting his excitement that this summer’s program will be held in New York City, VC Fred Wilson says that “programs like the one Startl has developed are essential to ensuring that the best and the brightest entrepreneurs get to market as quickly and smartly as possible, especially in markets like education where innovation has been elusive.”Applications are due March 16, and the program begins May 16.

Examples of these features include a layer of crushed stone and polyethylene under a basement slab; asphaltic dampproofing on the exterior side of basement walls; and sill seal made of thin closed-cell foam between the top of a foundation wall and the mudsill. All of these materials are used to reduce the transfer of moisture from the damp soil surrounding a foundation to the interior of the building or vulnerable framing lumber.Even when all of the listed features are installed, however, many builders forget to include a capillary break between the concrete footing and the basement wall. While installing such a capillary break isn’t common practice, it’s important. About capillarity If you place a large dry sponge in the middle of a shallow puddle, the top of the sponge soon becomes wet. This is a commonplace occurrence, so most people have an intuitive grasp of how capillary action works. Capillary rise isn’t a phenomenon that is limited to sponges, of course; it also happens with concrete walls, CMU walls, and stone-and-mortar walls.Capillary rise occurs when the forces of adhesion (the attraction between the molecules of a liquid and those of a solid) are stronger than the forces of cohesion (the attraction of the molecules of the liquid for each other). In some circumstances, equilibrium between these two forces is not achieved until the liquid has risen many feet.In many houses, capillarity is responsible for the rise of water from damp soil under concrete footings into foundation walls. This phenomenon can contribute up to 15 gallons of water a day to a home’s interior moisture load. Capillary action in soils and masonry — called “rising damp” in Britain — is a… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.

Virat Kohli is an unbelievable player, England fast bowler Tom Curran said while heaping praises on the Indian skipper on Tuesday.ICC announced the fixtures for the 2020 edition of the Men’s T20 World Cup on the same day.England are pooled with India, South Africa, Afghanistan and two, yet to be confirmed, qualifying teams.When asked how he will dismiss Kohli, the 23-year-old said: “Hopefully, not with a no-ball. We will see. He is an unbelievable player.”As the tournament will be played as a standalone event following the Women’s T20 World Cup, Curran said he is purely excited at the prospect of playing a World event in Australia.Here is the draw for the men’s #T20WorldCup in 2020!Which Super 12 route will be tougher to reach the semi-finals from? pic.twitter.com/C276LkqNgD ICC (@ICC) January 29, 2019″All the games are so exciting, the crowd will be phenomenal, and to be a part of it will be amazing. Playing T20s in Australia is unbelievable. We saw the excitement the 50-over World Cup (in 2015) created here,” he said.”Australia have some of the most unbelievable stadiums in the world. To experience it properly in this Big Bash season has been amazing for me,” the English fast bowler said.Meanwhile, Curran believes fellow teammate Ben Stokes will “come back strong” in the 2020 edition when stressed on the 2016 edition of the tournament.Stokes had conceded four straight sixes by West Indies’s Carlos Brathwaite in the last over of the final that cost England the title.advertisement”I was watching at home. It was very hard to watch. But Stokesy (Stokes) will come back strong, no doubt. That is the beauty of T20 cricket. It is never over really, a few balls in an over sometimes turn the game on its head. It is an exciting time for everyone involved,” Curran said.Since then, England have become the number three side in the ICC T20I rankings.ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 is scheduled from October 18 to November 15. England and India will lock horns on November 1 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

APTN National NewsA long-awaited report expected to tackle First Nations representation on juries was released Tuesday and aims to do just that.Retired Supreme Court Justice Frank lacobucci’s report found systemic and procedural issues preventing First Nations from sitting on juries.In fact, laccobucci called it a “state of crisis”.“For Ontario’s First Nations peoples, particularly in the north, the justice system and juries process generally are in a crisis,” said lacobucci in a press release. “As a result of our face-to-face meetings with leaders and community members from 32 First Nations from across Ontario, we developed 17 recommendations that will help ensure that the cultural values, laws, and ideologies of First Nations’ are better reflected in the Canadian justice system.”The Ontario government handpicked lacobucci in August 2011 to determine why there seemed to be a lack of First Nation jurors.That came after Jacy Pierre, 27, died at the Thunder Bay jail five years ago. The inquest into his death, which is common when prisoners die behind bars, was put off because no one on the jury was First Nation.Others have voiced concerns about lack of First Nations jurors.Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto applauded the report and urged the province to implement the recommendations.“This type of exclusion contributes to excessive imprisonment of Aboriginal people. This report is an opportunity to move forward and ensure that constitutional rights of First Nation people are upheld, so they are active participants, like all Ontarians, in the jury system,” said Christa Big Canoe a legal director with ALST.Key recommendations made by the Independent Reviewer include:-Establishing an implementation committee with First Nations membership, government officials and individuals (including a youth Aboriginal member) who would be responsible for the implementation of the report.-Establishing a First Nation advisory group to the Attorney General on matters relating to First Nations peoples and the justice system.-Providing cultural training for all government officials working in the justice system who have contact with First Nations peoples (e.g. police, court workers, Crown prosecutors, prison guards and other related agencies).-Determining promptly and urgently the feasibility and suitability of using existing government databases or other suitable sources, such as band residency information, Ministry of Transportation information, OHIP roles, and other records, to generate a database of First Nations individuals living on reserve for the purposes of compiling the jury roll.-Amending the questionnaire sent to prospective jurors so that it is more appropriate for First Nations communities.-Considering a procedure whereby First Nations people on reserve could volunteer for jury service as a means of supplementing other jury source lists.-Creating an assistant deputy Attorney General position responsible for Aboriginal issues, including the implementation of this report.The full list of the recommendations can be found at www.firstnationsandjuriesreview.ca.
Mumbai: Singer Akriti Kakar says she composed “Jobless” from her personal experience, and was pleasantly surprised when director Tigmanshu Dhulia decided to include the song in “Milan Talkies”. Akriti has sung the song with Sukriti and Prakriti. “I had composed ‘Jobless’ from a personal experience for my then boyfriend and now husband. I wrote the lyrics out of relatability saying ‘I feel jobless when he goes out of town and doesn’t pay attention to me, how I keep looking at my phone all day for it to ring, anticipating a message from him’,” Akriti said in a statement.

The song mysteriously reached Tigmanshu Sir and he contacted me two years ago saying he would like to include it in his film ‘Milan Talkies’ whenever it would be made,” she added. The singer was left speechless. “He told me he will create a situation for the song in his film, and made me realise how fond he was of the song. I am overjoyed since it was going to be my first song for a film composed, written and sung by me. Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knot “For me, it has been such a ‘pinch me’ experience, especially because I had not created this song keeping in mind a film but from personal experience…it’s a really special feeling,” she added. Talking about the song, Dhulia said: “Every love story has to have a breezy love song but I wanted something else instead of a duet. I thought the girl should express what she feels after she has fallen in love.” “Milan Talkies” is a love story set against the backdrop of single-screen theatres. It stars Ali Fazal and Shraddha Srinath, and is slated to release on March 15.
