first_imgRemember those last days of summer vacation when you were a kid? When you felt the urgency and tried to cram as much fun into the last week or two before you had to trudge back to the confines of the classroom and listen to old Mrs. Hardigan talk about fractions and Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally? Yeah, me too. I also remember spending those last days of vacation on a bike riding around with my friends. I wouldn’t call this aimless riding because there was a point to it. The point was to get outside and taste that last bit of freedom, feel it blow through our hair, shout it at the top of lungs, and possibly get a icee-pop from the corner store. Yes, those were the days and it can be hard to recapture that type of wild abandon in adulthood; unless, of course, you participate in the Blue Ridge Breakaway this Saturday.In it’s fourth year, the Blue Ridge Breakaway offers four road rides of varying distances that all begin and end at the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center. Each ride has it’s own merits: there is a century (The Hawk – 105 miles with 32 miles along the Blue Ridge Parkway), a metric century (The Trout – 62.1 miles with over 5,800 feet of climbing and a downhill finish), a 40-mile ride (The Panther – 40 miles – duh – with 2,600 feet of elevation gain), and the Rabbit, a family friendly 24-mile ride with a moderate 1,200 feet of elevation gain. Each ride features views of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pisgah National Forest, and are fully supported with rest stops and SAG vehicles.And that’s not all! Leading the rides will be pro cyclist and Olympic silver medalist Lauren Tamayo. Tamayo won silver in track cycling at the 2012 London Games, lives in Asheville, and will be on hand before and after the race to chat cycling with the estimated 550-600 riders expected to participate.You can register on Friday evening or on race day. If you are not interested in riding, this will still be a fun event, especially with an Olympian in the mix. So, as Freddie Mercury used to say, “Get on your bikes and ride!”View Larger Maplast_img read more

first_imgBy Marcos Ommati/Diálogo March 18, 2019 Peruvian Army General Jorge Orlando Céliz Kuong assumed command of the institution in November 2018, with the important mission of turning it into a multi-mission force. In February 2019, Major General Mark Stammer, U.S. Army South commander, invited Gen. Céliz to visit several military facilities in the United States to exchange knowledge about the transformations taking place in both armies. Diálogo spoke with Gen. Céliz during his visit to Fort Benning, in Columbus, Georgia. Diálogo: What did you see during your U.S. visit that could be implemented in Peru? Peruvian Army General Jorge Orlando Céliz Kuong, commander of the Peruvian Army: The U.S. Army, as we all know, grows daily from combat experiences. They handle conventional combat better, as we saw in the Middle East, Afghanistan, or elsewhere in the world. But I also believe that the evolution of the U.S. Army and our Latin American armies should be consistent with changes, new threats, risks, etc., of this century. The best I saw in my visit to the United States is the weapons system technology they have. The use of cyber technology in their daily activities, how they conceptualize multi-domain warfare; warfare involving land, sea, air, and space, and also cyberspace. It’s very important to have a benchmark if we want to be interoperable between armies, and that benchmark is the United States. Diálogo: Does this process of change have to do with understanding the trends of new generations? Gen Céliz: Of course. This generation isn’t the same as 20, 30 years ago, so we have to train and instruct them. Each of the threats we face demands interoperability and involves foresight so that we can act jointly. Diálogo: You served as an instructor at the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation [WHINSEC], around 20 years ago. What are the main changes you noticed on this visit to the institute? Gen Céliz: What I noticed is that soldiers, NCOs [noncommissioned officers], and officers now enjoy sustained comfort. The facilities, infrastructure, classrooms, and even treatment of personnel evolved. It’s more oriented to providing personnel with the comfort and well-being they and their families need, so they can respond confidently and better when they are in combat. Diálogo: Regarding new threats, what are the countries in the region that work closely with Peru? Gen Céliz: We’ve been working very closely with all countries in recent years. A very good example is Exercise AMAZONLOG conducted in 2017 with our neighboring and sister nations of Colombia and Brazil, as well as with the United States. We were able to be a part of a special exercise in the Amazon to confront several threats in the area. In the same vein, we work closely with Colombia, supporting a bilateral agreement between our ministers of Defense. We were able to carry out border operations in the Amazon Trapezium [in the Colombian Amazon], by the Putumayo River, to neutralize narcotraffickers or organized crime in the area. About three or four years ago, we also had direct participation with Ecuador to provide support after the earthquake in Guayaquil. We had the opportunity to send helicopters, engineering personnel, and soldiers, also in the south. This year, we planned an operation with the Chilean Army in the south, in Concordia, to mitigate an 8.5 magnitude earthquake with the participation of regional forces, the community, and regional and local authorities. With Bolivia, it’s almost always about cold spells, especially on the border. It’s the same with Ecuador. During the most recent events, due to coastal rain, we carried out exercises along the Tumbes River and the Zarumilla River, with the participation of the community and armies. What I mean is that we have common threats. Each region has individual characteristics, but we work that way to be more helpful to society. Diálogo: And what about narcotrafficking? Gen Céliz: You know that Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia are the main coca leaf and alkaloid producers. The National Police is directly involved in the fight against narcotrafficking. But last year [2018], Congress granted the Armed Forces legal power to participate where a state of emergency is declared, trying to prevent supplies from reaching places with greater alkaloid production, in other words, to prevent the transport of kerosene, cement, lime, coca leaves, and other chemicals, or also to seize air or land vehicles that facilitate the trade of this material. Diálogo: What is the multi-mission army that you want to implement in Peru? Is this an evolution? Gen Céliz: There are different terms that might be misunderstood. We are talking in some cases about reengineering, in other cases about evolution, as you just said, and in others about modernization. For us, modernization means providing new technologies to the same forces and organizations to carry out the same tasks. In our case, it’s a transformation process because of the vision we have to carry out our tasks, with respect to our Army’s five roles. The first is to defend sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. This is common for almost everyone around the world. On the other hand, we have another strategic role: to defend or participate in internal order, if and when the National Police’s capabilities are exceeded. Right now, we focus on illegal mining in the plains, in Madre de Dios department. The first force to intervene in this case is the National Police. We provide security for that police intervention, but we would intervene if they couldn’t cope with it. That has yet to be the case. Another role of the Army is to participate in risk and disaster management. The fourth one is the strategic role, which relates to international projection. Diálogo: What is that international projection? Gen Céliz: International projection has to do with our participation in different events worldwide. We have various officers who serve in the United Nations peacekeeping forces, and we also have an integrated engineering company in the Central African Republic. And last, but not the least important role, is national development. This is part of the Army’s job to contribute to communities by building routes and bridges, improving roads, and bringing engineering benefits that sometimes cannot reach remote areas. We contribute to national development as part of security and as part of that development that’s so wanted by the population. All these roles I mentioned, these five roles, indicate that this is not an army for conventional warfare only; we should be prepared for everything. Each of these roles entails specific tasks that are very different from each other, so we need to have flexible organizations that know how to move an organization, or an idea, or a mission quickly and conduct another one. We have to be organized in the material, the tools available to us. We have to be interoperable, because it’s not only the Army participating, but also our Navy, our Air Force, and the National Police. We have to think quickly and be honest about being able to act patiently and cautiously to achieve everything a 21st century army would want to attain. Diálogo: Is Peru aspiring to become a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) like Colombia? Gen Céliz: Yes. We aspire to belong to NATO someday. Certainly, it’s a long-term process, but we also need to be properly categorized and implemented, so that we can speak the same language. Nowadays, the world is a global village. This is a reality, and we must be aware that we are not an island in the world, not even in Latin America. We are neighbors, and we share a series of threats. We talk about national security, but we also have a series of strengths that together would allow us to confront them [these threats] more successfully. And that’s our objective, to be part of an economic organization, or part of a group aiming at security specifically. We can’t cease to partner in this era. On the contrary, we have to stick together to solve our problems jointly, and that’s part of belonging to NATO. If there were a similar organization in Latin America, I think all the leaders and armed forces’ commanders would wish to aim for it. Diálogo: Is there anything you would like to add? Gen Céliz: Institutional transformation is quite a difficult and challenging goal. Some things can be done right away, without any cost, such as a change of mindset or organizational culture. When I talk to my soldiers, I tell them we have to be committed. We shouldn’t expect a sudden, overnight change or transformation. The transformation process is lengthy and long-term, and when we reach our goal we find another need for transformation, because the only permanent thing, as some ancient philosopher said, is change, and in today’s fast-paced world we have to embrace transformation on a daily basis.last_img read more

But such media exposure is generally a prime indicator that the culinary artists are serving up world-class cuisine—bad chefs don’t tend to win cooking shows or book deals.With styles ranging from international fusion to bistro fare, here is a list of 13 celebrity chefs on Long Island. Bon appetit!Chef Michael PsilakisRestaurant: MP Taverna, 1363 Old Northern Blvd., Roslyn. michaelpsilakis.comStyle:  Traditional Greek cuisine.Cooking was of great value in the Psilakis family. Chef Michael Psilakis was taught by his mother at an early age everything there is to know about classic Greek flavors and techniques. His father set up an enormous BBQ in the backyard and taught him how to roast whole lambs on a spit. These early lessons proved to be favorable to his career in the kitchen. Psilakis has won numerous award, including Food & Wine’s Best New Chef and Bon Appetit’s Chef of the Year in 2008, among other accolades. His restaurant in Roslyn—billed as his modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern—is the first of three locations, the last of which opened in Astoria.

After graduating top in his class from culinary school in his native France, Corbet worked for a range of Michelin-starred restaurants. At the age of 24, he arrived on Long Island, where he worked at the Stone Creek Inn before becoming executive chef at Bouley Restaurant in Manhattan. There, his culinary passion boiled over, and he brought his cooking game back to LI, where he became the executive chef and managing partner of O’s Food & Wine Bar in St. James. Now, he heads up Roots Bistro Gourmand, where Corbet’s love of the culinary arts has flourished.Chef Todd MitgangSouth Edison, 17 S. Edison St., Montauk. southedison.comStyle: Seafood, New AmericanTodd Mitgang followed his devotion of the culinary arts to the French Culinary Institute, which landed him in the role of sous chef, then executive chef at Lisenda, a seafood restaurant. Then, in 2004, Mitgang accepted a position at SoHo’s Kittichai, where he was promoted to sous chef within a week of the grand opening. Later he was promoted to chef de cuisine. Aside from this casual seafood/American restaurant in the heart of downtown Montauk, he also owns the creative and crowd-pleasing Crave Fishbar in Manhattan. But since his outpost at The End is seasonal, fans will have to wait until spring to sink their teeth into their famous Olive Oil Braised Baby Octopus Tacos.Chef Rosa de Carvalho RossScrimshaw, Preston’s Wharf, 102 Main St., Greenport. scrimshawrestaurant.comStyle: Asian-infused seafoodChef Rosa de Carvalho Ross (Lo San) was born and raised in British Hong Kong, where she was drawn to the art of cooking while being immersed in Asian and Western culinary cultures.

He has since re-launched the venue, creating what he believes is the perfect recipe: the Brass Rail Bar.Chef Michael MaroniMaroni Cuisine, 18 Woodbine Ave., Northport. maronicuisine.comStyle: ItalianMichael Maroni was first hooked on meatballs when his Grandma made them for him as a child. Now, at Maroni Cuisine, he uses the same recipe daily in the restaurant he and his wife, Maria, own. Maroni boasts that “even people that don’t like meatballs eat these.” His meatballs became so famous that Bobby Flay got interested so he challenged Maroni to a “Throwdown!” Maroni subsequently prevailed, and he has been dishing out meatballs ever since along with an array of culinary delights. Maroni chooses not to have a set tasting menu at his restaurant; if you come to eat, not for take-out, waiters check your allergies and your preferences, and then Maroni brings about 25 small plates to your table, all prepared to perfection. It’s costly but it’s worth it.Chef Todd JacobsFresh Hamptons, 203 Sag Harbor Tpk., Sag Harbor freshhamptons.comStyle: Gourmet Health foodIf you told Todd Jacobs when he was a child that he would become the chef of a restaurant that prides itself on locally grown ingredients and gluten-free, vegan, and raw options, he would have laughed.

Boggs is also a wine connoisseur, serving only the best pairing in his restaurant, which he still runs.Chef Marc BynumHush Bistro, 291 Main St., Farmingdale hushamericanbistro.comStyle: Modern AmericanMarc Bynum’s tale is a true Long Island Cinderella story. His only culinary training came from vocational school while he was still a high school student. Bynum worked at a number of beloved restaurants on the Island, such as Venue 56 and Prime. His first success came when he appeared on Food Network’s “Chopped,” winning two episodes and appearing on the season finale, “Chopped Champions.” Now, thanks to his growing popularity and culinary acclaim, Bynum has opened Hush in Farmingdale, serving his signature style dishes made with sensational organic ingredients.Chef Gerry Hayden and Chef Claudia FlemingThe North Fork Table and Inn, 57225 Main Rd., Southold nofoti.comStyle: Gourmet AmericanGerry Hayden, after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America and becoming a well-respected executive chef at Manhattan’s Aureole, moved back to Long Island to open the North Fork Table and Inn with his wife, the James Beard Foundation Award winner and dessert expert Claudia Fleming. In 2014 Hayden was named a finalist in the James Beard Foundation Awards for best chef in New England–his fourth time–just a few years after he was first diagnosed with ALS. Despite losing the use of his hands in 2012, Hayden stayed true to his calling and remained a large part of the North Fork Table and Inn’s daily routine. The North Fork Table and Inn opened a food truck in 2013 to bring their cuisine to patrons all over the Island and reach a broader audience of food lovers than they could ever host at one table in Southold. Due to Hayden’s condition, he and Fleming decided to put the restaurant up for sale for some $3.8 million in September but so far no buyer has been announced. Hayden told a local paper on the East End that making that decision was “the hardest thing” he’s ever had to do, and for a chef who has striven for perfection in every dish he’s made, that’s saying a lot.last_img read more

first_imgCHIEF EXECUTIVES David M LeVan of Conrail, John W Snow of CSX and Norfolk Southern’s David R Goode emerged from a private meeting on January 31 having failed to agree a formula for replacing the three major eastern US railways by two. On January 17, Conrail shareholders rejected overwhelmingly a resolution to waive a Pennsylvania anti-takeover law requiring companies to accept the most lucrative offer. CSX wanted to buy 40% of Conrail’s shares for $110 each with the other 60% to be purchased for stock, but this friendly merger – claimed by CSX to be worth $9·7bn – has been voted down.Norfolk Southern’s hostile bid is $115 a share in cash for all shares. That $10·5bn deal is rejected by Conrail, but on February 12 NS launched a tender offer for all Conrail shares. This appears to be a futile gesture, as 9·9% is the maximum NS can hold without triggering ’poison pill’ defences that make a Conrail takeover prohibitively expensive.Supported by Conrail’s board, CSX added to the 20% of Conrail’s shares it already owned by an oversubscribed offer to buy another 9·9%, but it is far from clear that CSX or Conrail shareholders will endorse a merger given the prospect of better terms from NS. Goode says ’Conrail’s owners have sent a powerful message to Conrail’s board that shareholders will not be coerced into accepting the deal CSX and Conrail tried to impose on them’. He sees the vote as ’a strong endorsement of Norfolk Southern’s better offer’.In an attempt to resolve the stalemate, Linda Morgan, who chairs the Surface Transportation Board, said on January 21 that the federal agency would consider splitting up Conrail’s routes amongst the two rival suitors if they cannot agree on acceptable terms. ’Our job here at the board is to preserve competition, and to ensure that there is a competitive balance to any proposal that will come to us … the board has a lot of things in its arsenal – divestiture is one’. The STB is expected to intervene this month, and will almost certainly require the granting of trackage rights to maintain competition. olast_img read more

first_imgPeople can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. Thedisease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the noseor mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runnynose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begingradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’tfeel unwell. Miag-ao’sthird COVID-19 case was a 21-year-old male – grandson of the town’s secondcase, a 94-year-old male (Western Visayas’ Patient No. 31) who died on April 8. The21-year-old grandson is Western Visayas’ COVID-19 Patient No. 42 and Iloiloprovince’s 16th case. He is also considered the region’s youngest coronaviruspatient so far. ILOILO– Mayor Macario Napulan of Miag-ao town slammed the Department of Health (DOH)Region 6 for informing him late about the third confirmed case of coronavirusdisease 2019 (COVID-19) in his municipality. Specimenfrom the grandson was taken on April 8 for testing at the Western VisayasMedical Center in Iloilo City. Tomake up for lost time, Napulan recommended to the Municipal Health Office theconduct of rapid testing on all close contacts of the grandson’s family members. Hislast contract with his grandfather (the region’s oldest COVID patient) was onMarch 28 when the old man was confined at a government hospital. Thefirst COVID-19-confirmed case in Miag-ao was a 21-year-old female (the region’sPatient No. 12).

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta outwitted City manager Pep Guardiola with an astute counter-attacking scheme and Aubameyang struck in each half as Arsenal executed the plan to perfection. Arsenal will face Chelsea or Manchester United, who meet in the other semi-final on Sunday, in the final at Wembley on August 1. Arteta captained Arsenal to FA Cup triumph six years ago and, in his first season in charge of the north London club, the Spaniard has led them back to the final of a competition they last won in 2017. Just days after beating Premier League champions Liverpool, Arsenal offered further evidence that Arteta could be the man to restore them to the glory days of the Arsene Wenger era. Arteta had fired a warning shot to Arsenal’s board in midweek when he admitted he was concerned about his club’s ability to spend enough to turn them into title contenders. On the evidence of the canny way he got one over on Guardiola, Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke would be wise to give the man he hired in December a chance to show what he can do with a rebuilt team. Arsenal had lost their previous seven meetings with City, including a 3-0 drubbing in their first game after the coronavirus hiatus. City were unbeaten in their past nine matches at Wembley but, thanks to Arteta’s masterstroke, Arsenal handed Guardiola’s side a first defeat there since the 2017 FA Cup semi-final against the Gunners. With second place in the Premier League secured, City have to focus on the resumption of their Champions League challenge in August, when they defend a 2-1 first leg lead against Real Madrid in the last 16. City bossed the early exchanges to such an extent that they had amassed 83 percent possession after 10 minutes. Arsenal should have been ahead when David Luiz picked out Aubameyang, who wastefully shot straight at Ederson with only the keeper to beat. It was a warning City failed to heed and Aubameyang made them pay in the 19th minute. At the climax of an 18-pass move, Pepe’s deep cross caught Walker dozing and Aubameyang eluded him to slide a fine finish off the far post from a tight angle. It was the kind of incisive, imaginative attack that City usually torment Arsenal with, but for once it was the men in red celebrating. The Gabon striker’s 24th goal of the season was a reminder why Arsenal are so desperate to get him to sign a contract extension. Urging Arsenal to “get the ball, get the ball” at every opportunity, Arteta’s intensity on the touchline was matched by his players. City, unbeaten in their previous 22 domestic cup ties, were well short of their best. Raheem Sterling wasted a golden opportunity to equalise when he shot wide from Kevin De Bruyne’s pass. City finally tested Emiliano Martinez for the first time as Riyad Mahrez’s low strike forced an excellent one-handed stop from the Arsenal keeper. De Bruyne’s free-kick curled just wide before VAR rejected Sterling’s penalty appeal after Mustafi appeared to trip the winger. Defending deep, Arsenal were putting their bodies in the way of everything to keep City at bay.last_img read more
