Ltd.Nissan RoguePetsSUVs and Crossovers For some of us, dog ownership is much more than a “lifestyle choice;” they’re our family members. And while minivans cater to the families that drive (or basically, live in) them by installing vacuum cleaners, a zillion child-seat anchors and kid-oriented entertainment systems, it’s rare to find a vehicle that puts our canine friends in the front seat, so to speak.The one-off Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project – displayed at this year’s New York Auto Show – is probably the closest thing we’ve seen to the ideal dog-car, with built-in, no-spill food and water dispensers in the cargo area, a slide-away access ramp, a 360-degree shower with 10 gallon water reserve and integrated drying system, numerous harness clips and a list of other features that make this dog owner say WANT (and, sorry for yelling).But really, if you’re someone who judges every vehicle purchase by whether it suits your dog(s), err, family, you know what we’re talking about! SUV Review: 2017 Nissan Rogue SL Premium advertisement Built by the car coordinator for the Fast & Furious franchise – and, obviously, a dog lover – Dennis McCarthy thought of all the details, including a custom removable dog bed, side-wall-mounted poop bag dispenser, first aid kit and even “passive sideview mirror cameras” for recording Fido’s rear-window antics (because: dog videos!). Just when you thought the list was complete, don’t forget a dog-friendly second-row pass-through, protective dog hammock and removable pet partition, of course. Oh, and a vanity key fob – just because. ‹ Previous Next › COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Based on a 2017 Rogue SL with the top-level Platinum Reserve Interior Package, it’s also equipped with premium seating and all the features that have contributed to making this Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in Canada. But the dog-friendly features are what truly make this the perfect crossover, don’t you think?RELATED Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto ShowHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto ShowHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto ShowHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The integrated shower system in the Nissan Rogue Dogue one-off project vehicleHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto ShowHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto ShowHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The rear cargo area includes heat vents for FidoHandout, Nissan Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The Nissan “Rogue Dogue” project vehicle debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto Show Buy It!

EU deputy Brexit negotiator: UK leaving will have ‘limited’ impact on EU security

first_imgBERLIN — The U.K.’s departure from the EU will have a “limited” impact on the bloc’s security arrangements, the European Commission’s deputy Brexit negotiator Sabine Weyand said today.“When it comes to foreign and security policy the impacts of Brexit are limited,” Weyand said in Berlin at an event to kick off this year’s Munich Security Conference.Weyand said just 3 percent of staff working on EU security operations are from the U.K., rising to 5 percent for civilian deployments. “In the exchange of secret service information, Great Britain is a lot less active than Germany and France,” said Weyand. “That is because cooperation on security takes place outside EU structures.”Weyand also said an exchange of letters between Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has triggered an “interesting debate,” but warned that London needs time for the parties to come to an arrangement.Corbyn has asked for a permanent customs union with the EU — something Brexiteers dread because they want the U.K. to be able to strike its own trade deals. May’s spokesman said today: “We’re not considering Jeremy Corbyn’s customs proposals, we’re not considering any proposals to remain in the customs union, we must have our own independent trade policy.”Weyand also said she did not see much prospect of a successful second referendum campaign in the U.K. unless the Remain camp “presented Europe as it is and not as a fantasy.” Also On POLITICO Theresa May extends Brexit olive branch to Labour By Jack Blanchard UK awaits its Brexit Napoleon By Tom McTaguelast_img read more

New Social Services Minister pledges support to DAPD

first_img Share Tweet Minister for Health and Social Services Dr. Kenneth DarrouxDr. Kenneth Darroux, who was recently given the Ministry of Social Services portfolio, has publicly pledged support to the Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD). Dr. Darroux made this announcement while addressing the DAPD’s 34th annual general meeting on Wednesday 30 May 2018 on the grounds of the DAPD’s office in Goodwill, where he said he accepted this new portfolio “wholeheartedly”. He said it is his intention to work with the DAPD and like organizations whether in the public or private sector in order to contribute to the well-being of all. “Gone are the days when having a disability was the end of your working career, gone are the days when persons with disabilities could not contribute to a country’s development,” Dr. Darroux said. The DAPD, he said, has served as an advocate for many, contributing immensely to areas of policy and decision making for the cause of persons living with disabilities.“It is common knowledge that the current administration has made it a point of duty to look after all in Dominica…No one individual, group or community, and we mean no one should be left out in our developmental drive,” he said.Minister Darroux further reassured the DAPD membership of his commitment to supporting them.“Let me again promise you that the Ministry of Health and Social Services, and in fact the government by extension, will try our best to be with you every step of the way,” he said. The new Minister for Social Services also revealed that while sitting at the head table he informed the DAPD’s Executive Director, Nathalie Murphy, to put together a list of the association’s challenges.“As the new minister, I would really like to know and to group them into those challenges that we can deal with immediately, medium term and long term and I look forward to this list,” he explained. Dr. Darroux said that over the next few weeks, he along with senior staff members of his ministry, will meet with the DAPD and other organizations to “hear from you in a more personalized setting and to discuss how your government can assist further in achieving your goals and objectives”. 151 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img LocalNewsPolitics New Social Services Minister pledges support to DAPD by: Dominica Vibes News – May 30, 2018 Sharing is caring!

Jose Mourinho insider believes Ed Woodward put an end on the former coach’s spell

first_imgAdvertisement x4NBA Finals | Brooklyn VsbtrpWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E3jyu2( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 80dWould you ever consider trying this?😱esd3jcCan your students do this? 🌚5xqxsRoller skating! Powered by Firework It has been 162 days since Manchester United have sacked their former manager Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils took the bold decision after finding a catalog of his failings at the club, the most prominent of which being eleven points adrift of the title hunt midway through the season. Advertisement Mourinho’s close friend believes Manchester United could have escaped the horrors of his sacking if the club hired a Sports DirectorMancHowever, Mourinho’s close aide and Manchester United’s insider Pedrag Mijatovic believes that it could all have been prevented if Ed Woodward had hired a Sporting Director. He feels sorry for Mourinho before putting the blame on Woodward.“Mou is a smart guy, as well as a great coach and a great friend. I am sorry for what is happening lately and I also think it deserves a lot more respect than what is given to it.”Advertisement Mourinho’s ally further added that people underestimate the role of a Sports Director. Manchester United’s decision to not hire one burdened Mourinho and eventually affected his performance.“In the last clubs where he has been he has found himself very alone. He has missed a sports director. People believe the sports director is a figure who only works three months in summer. It is not true. He is a fundamental figure between the training group and the club’s high levels, because there is often a need to bring the points of view of each other closer together. Someone has to mediate.”Advertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

Henry De Bromhead bids for further Galway Plate success

first_imgHenry De Bromhead chases his third Galway Plate in four years next week and has put together a formidable team of seven horses for the summer’s chasing highlight, now an evening card at Ballybrit on Wednesday, August 1. Further down the handicap, Calino D’airy, twice a winner at Galway in October of last year, has 10st 11lbs while Conrad Hastings has 10st 7lbs.Gordon Elliott has put one more than De Bromhead into the race with his 2016 winner Lord Scoundrel on 10st 10lbs among his eight, double his entry of last year. With 11st 1lb, Jury Duty has the most weight of the Elliott brigade. With a 10lbs rise in the ratings for his success in the Midlands National Handicap Chase at Kilbeggan last Friday night, Timiyan is on 9st 12lbs.Willie Mullins has 13 horses in the race with Alelchi Inios and Ballycasey, second and third to Lord Scoundrel two years ago, on 11st 1lb and 10st 13lbs respectively. Patricks Park, a winner at the inaugural Dublin Racing Festival and at the Punchestown festival, has 10st 7lbs, 2lbs higher than stablemate Blazer.Both Jessica Harrington and Noel Meade have made five entries. Neverushacon was a winner on the final day of last year’s Galway festival for Harrington and will carry 10st 11lbs after his runaway victory at Limerick earlier this month. Road To Riches gave Meade his sole success in the race when winning in 2014 and has 10st 6lbs while the classy Snow Falcon is on 11st.Last year’s third, Slowmotion (10st 8lbs), is one of four entries for Joseph O’Brien while Supreme Vinnie (9st 13lbs) could yet represent trainer Denise O’Shea after his success in the Galway Plate Trial Handicap Chase at Limerick earlier this month.There are five entries from Britain with Nigel Twiston-Davies, David Pipe, Harry Fry, Neil Mulholand and Dr Richard Newland all bidding to emulate Paul Nicholls who sent over Oslot to win in the hands of Ruby Walsh in 2008.The total entry of 58 horses is an increase of 11 on last year and up 18 on the 2016 figure.Michael Moloney, General Manager of Galway Racecourse, said: “We are very excited about the 149th running of Galway Plate in its new evening slot and we are thrilled with the number of entries received for this great race. While we have strong teams entered from Irish trainers like Henry De Bromhead, Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott, it is great to see the entries from across the Irish Sea. It takes a lot of hard work to win a Galway Plate and no doubt it will be another great horse that will win the 2018 renewal.”CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO ENTRIES WITH WEIGHTSprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Balko Des Flos and Davy Russell winning Galway Plate.Galway Festival.Photo: Patrick McCann 02.08.2017center_img A winner with Shanahan’s Turn three years ago, and subsequent Cheltenham Festival Ryanair Chase hero Balko Des Flos last year, the County Waterford trainer’s entry is headed by early top-weights Sub Lieutenant on 11st 10lbs and Valseur Lido which has been allotted an early weight of 11st 5lbs.last_img read more

UIW Rallies in Final Seconds to Defeat Nebraska, 74-73

first_imgFreshman Jontrell Walker got the comeback started with a three-pointer to answer Petteway, but they still trailed 71-66 with 33 second left after a free throw by David Rivers.  Traylin Farris cut it to three points with a lay-up and then Shawn Johnson (Gretna, LA/Alief Hastings HS) stole a pass and was fouled attempting a 3-pointer.  He made 2-of-3 to cut the lead to one point.  UIW quickly fouled the Cornhuskers (5-3) and Shavon Shields knocked down a pair of free throws with 16 seconds left. In a game that could have gone either way, the ball bounced the way of the Cardinals (6-1) a few times in the last moments of the game.  UIW was down 67-60 after a Terran Petteway 3-pointer with 2:32 remaining in the game, but never gave up.  “Our guys really hung in there together especially after Denzel (Livingston) fouled out,” said UIW head coach Ken Burmeister.  “It is a great win for UIW, Dr. Agnese and the city of San Antonio.” UIW 74, Nebraska 73LINCOLN, Neb. – Kyle Hittle’s baseline jumper with 3.2 seconds quieted the 10,586 fans at Pinnacle Bank Arena and  capped off a huge upset victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night, 74-73. On the ensuing possession, Johnson was once again fouled on a three-point attempt.  He made the first free throw, missed the second and knocked down the third to make it 73-72 Nebraska with 6.7 seconds left.  The Huskers could not get the ball in bounds and threw it away without anyone touching the ball.  Hittle got the ball off the in-bounds play for UIW, took a dribble to the baseline, rose up and knocked down a tough 13-footer with 3.2 seconds to play.  Petteway’s desperation three-pointer was off the mark for Nebraska. This was the second of seven consecutive games on the road for UIW.  The Cardinals are now off for a week before heading to Grand Canyon University next Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game.center_img The Cardinals shot 48.1 percent from the field, made 8-of-24 from three-point range and were 16-of-22 at the foul line.  Walker led the team with 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting.  Hittle finished with 18 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the field and Johnson added 13 points.  Denzel Livingston added 12 points, six rebounds and five steals before fouling out in the final minute.  Farris came off the bench to score 12 points in just 16 minutes.  Those five players scored every pointfor the Cardinals. The Huskers, an NCAA tournament team in 2013-14, shot 42.3 percent from the field, made 5-of-17 from three-point range and were 24-of-32 at the charity stripe.  Shields had 19 points, nine rebounds and was a perfect 9-for-9 at the foul line.  Petteway added 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals.  Nebraska had 10 more rebounds than the Cardinals, but also committed two more turnovers. The win was the first ever for the Cardinals against a power conference school.  Even though they started the game slowly falling behind 8-0, they led by one point at the half.  There were a total of five ties and three lead changes in the game.  The Huskers led by 10 points with 12:59 remaining in the game.last_img read more
