While it was easy to assume animosity between the rival coaches, according to Mark Dantonio, it was just a case of the two not being able to link up on the field. From MLive:“It’s one of those things, you’re just not there at the time, but there’s no problems between myself and coach Harbaugh,” Dantonio said Monday morning on WDFN. “I have the utmost respect for him. I think he’s doing a tremendous job, and I think they have a good football team, a well-coached football team.”He is certainly right about that last part. Despite the brutal loss, few would have expected Michigan to be in position to beat Michigan State at all back in August.[MLive]last_img read more

Feb wholesale prices up 02 pct inflation nips producers

first_imgWASHINGTON – U.S. wholesale prices rose 0.2 per cent in February, a sign that inflation is beginning to blip higher for producers even if consumers have yet to feel its pinch.A pickup in wholesale services prices offset a drop in the cost of food and energy.The Labor Department said Wednesday that the February increase in its producer price index was half January’s 0.4 per cent gain. Producer prices, which show inflation before it reaches consumers, have risen 2.8 per cent over the past year.Energy prices fell 0.5 per cent in February, and food prices fell 0.4 per cent as fresh and dry vegetable prices plunged 27.1 per cent, most since May 2007. The wholesale price of services rose 0.3 per cent in February, matching the January increase. Prices for wholesale services rose 2.8 per cent over the past year, the biggest annual gain in records that date back to 2010. Transportation and warehousing prices rose 0.9 per cent, most since September. Excluding volatile food and energy prices, so-called core wholesale inflation rose 0.2 per cent for the third straight month.“Inflation is beginning to creep higher, led by services, exactly what you might expect in an economy characterized by a drum-tight labour market,” Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities, wrote in a research note. Unemployment has hovered at 4.1 per cent for five straight months.Prices have been rising faster for producers than for consumers. The Labor Department reported Tuesday that consumer prices rose just 2.2 per cent over the past year. Core consumer inflation posted a 12-month gain of just 1.8 per cent.The Federal Reserve wants to see inflation at roughly a 2 per cent annual pace. But the Fed’s preferred inflation measure has usually come in below that target for the past six years.last_img read more

Security Council reform very divisive process: General Assembly President

first_imgUnited Nations: UN General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espinosa has called the long-stalled Security Council reform process “very divisive” and “contentious” and said that to move forward, it has to avoid becoming a “zero sum game”. The co-chairs of the Intergovernmental Negotiations (IGN) for Council reforms, Permanent Representatives Lana Zaki Nusseibeh of the United Arab Emirates and Christian Braun of Luxembourg, whom she had appointed “are both putting a lot of effort and they are working, engaging with all member states, trying to pull together the different positions, trying to look at the commonalities to see how we can tackle the issue in order to avoid the zero sum game”, Espinosa said on Friday at a news conference here. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping Espinosa sidestepped a question if she expected India to become a permanent member of the Council for which it has been campaigning intensively. “It is true that people are getting impatient after 10 years of the IGN,” she said. Giving a downbeat assessment of the main hurdle to reforming the Council, she said: “Perhaps I shouldn’t be saying this because I’m supposed to be neutral, but sometimes we see the security Council reform as an either or and in black and white issue.” Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in Xinjiang The reform process has been stuck in a procedural groove unable to even get an agreement on a negotiating text — an agenda-setting document on which to base the discussions on envisioning a Council reflecting the 21st century realities. A group of 13 countries led by Italy that call themselves United for Consensus (UfC) have blocked progress by preventing the adoption of the negotiating text by claiming that it can come only after there is a consensus on reforms, which is elusive without a basic document. Pakistan is also a part of the group whose members each want to prevent a particular country from getting permanent membership. Speaking of the enormity of the task of getting 193 members of the UN to work together, she said, “It is not an easy issue. I want to be very open and frank with you. It is very divisive, it is contentious. “I think we have to make sure that the process continues, that all member states engage and we pull and push and push and pull and walk the extra mile.” She pointed out that “this is very much a member-state driven process” – where the member nations have to decide on the reforms. “My role as president is to accompany, to lead, to make sure the process continues, to make sure that it is an inclusive process, that it is transparent.” While the reform of the structure of the Council may seem distant, she said that meanwhile there were many things that could be done to improve the working of the Council. The 10 non-permanent members of the Council are already working towards this “de facto” by improving the working methods and increasing the transparency of the Council.last_img read more

Opinion Buckeye defense set for another title run in 2015

OSU sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa (right) sacks Michigan redshirt-senior quarterback Devin Gardner during a Nov. 29 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIt’s been more than a month since the Ohio State football team won its eighth national championship, but it is never too early to look forward to the start of the 2015 season.The Buckeyes are set to return seven of 11 starters on defense, a crew that held all three Heisman finalists relatively in check over the last three games of the year.With the 2015 spring game just about two months away from kicking off, we look at what the “Silver Bullets” will be bringing to the table as they get set to defend their title.Defensive lineWhile the Buckeyes lose Steve Miller and Michael Bennett, OSU doesn’t seem to be taking too big of a step back in 2015 along the defensive front.Unanimous All-American junior Joey Bosa is set to return for what will likely be his final season in the scarlet and gray, and veteran senior Adolphus Washington will likely anchor the interior of the front four for OSU.The candidate most likely to replace Bennett, who is almost sure to be a first- or second-round NFL Draft selection, is senior Tommy Schutt.Schutt played in 12 games in 2014 and recorded 10 tackles.Redshirt-sophomore Michael Hill will also earn time as the Buckeyes rotate early and often on the defensive line, especially inside.Replacing the production lost by Miller and Rashad Frazier should not be an issue for the Buckeyes as highly touted youngsters step to the forefront.Sophomore Jalyn Holmes, who made an appearance in nine games including the title game against Oregon, is a leading candidate for the end spot while fellow redshirt-sophomore Tyquan Lewis will also see significant playing time.Left out of the mix will be 2015 recruit Jashon Cornell. Despite being a four-star recruit, he is buried behind a stable of talent that will be competing for playing time on a defense looking to repeat for a national title.Returning starters:   Joey Bosa, Adolphus WashingtonKey losses: Michael Bennett, Steve MillerOdd man out: Jashon CornellProjected starters: Bosa, Washington, Tommy Schutt, Jalyn HolmesLinebackersThe linebackers on the 2014 title winning defense more than exceeded expectations after a less-than-stellar 2013 season.Led by senior Joshua Perry, the Buckeyes are set to return two of three starters from the linebacker core and a third with plenty of experience.Redshirt-sophomore Darron Lee and sophomore Raekwon McMillan will likely round out a three-man group that is built to torture opponents’ backfields.McMillan — who will replace Curtis Grant — totaled 54 tackles in his freshman campaign, just 15 less than Grant, who started each game in 2014.Combined, the three returning players accounted for 259 tackles in 2014, and are poised to shatter that number in 2015.Should an unforeseen injury occur, incoming freshman Justin Hilliard, the top outside linebacker recruit in the country according to ESPN, could see some early reps.Hilliard is an Ohio native out of St. Xavier High School and a possible future star for the Buckeyes.Returning starters: Joshua Perry, Darron LeeKey loss: Curtis GrantOdd man out: Chris WorleyProjected starters: Perry, Lee, Raekwon McMillanDefensive backsIf you are looking for a position group to credit for winning the 2014 title (other than the quarterbacks), look no further than the OSU secondary. The Buckeyes improved to the 29th best pass defense in 2014 from the 112th ranked pass defense in 2013, and stifled offenses for the large part of the title run. From the back four, the Buckeyes are set to return three players in 2015, but the one player lost might be the most difficult to replace. Doran Grant played arguably the biggest role on the OSU defense other than Bosa in 2014, as he took on wide receivers like Tony Lippett from Michigan State and Heisman finalist Amari Cooper from Alabama and held each under 100 yards. With Doran Grant lost to graduation, it is likely redshirt-sophomore Eli Apple will slide over to the strongside corner spot while redshirt-junior Tyvis Powell and junior Vonn Bell will return to their respective safety spots. Leading candidates to take over the weakside corner position are likely redshirt-sophomore Gareon Conley and sophomore Damon Webb. Conley, who started in place of Apple during the Michigan State game, showed signs of weakness as he gave up two big plays to quarterback Connor Cook and company, forcing Apple to play injured. Webb, whom some expected to redshirt in 2014, did not do so and appeared in nine games as a freshman, collecting three tackles. Another candidate is sophomore Erick Smith, who appeared in 13 games as a freshman and totaled 13 tackles to go along with an interception against Kent State. Whoever replaces Doran Grant will have big shoes to fill, and will likely be tested early and often. Returning starters: Eli Apple, Vonn Bell, Tyvis PowellKey losses: Doran Grant, Armani Reeves (injury)Odd man out: Gareon ConleyProjected starters: Apple, Damon Webb, Bell, PowellThe Buckeye defense is set to test its changes against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va. read more
