Portland Defeats Columbia 69-52










- Dane and Columbia county officials remind residents there are free resources for anyone looking to quit smoking. Related Content View More Anyone who smokes or uses tobacco and wants to quit can call the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW, according to a release. The Quit Line is funded by the Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program, part of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. "The benefits associated with quitting smoking are clearly substantial," Ryan Sheahan, of the Tobacco Free Columbia-Dane County Coalition, said http://norbertehwk.blogs.experienceproject.com/2555357.html in the release. Quitting smoking not only reduces ones risk of lung, throat and cervical cancer, but can also lower ones blood pressure and risk of coronary heart disease. Sheahan also said people who quit using tobacco have better smelling breath, say food tastes better, and the yellow tinge on their fingers and fingernails disappears. "According to the Burden of Tobacco Report, there are approximately 60,000 smokers in Dane County and 7,500 in Columbia County which, ultimately, translates into a dramatic economic impact. Cigarette smoking causes Dane County over $237,000,000 in health care costs per year, as well as over $146,000,000 in lost productivity each year. <br>More: http://www.channel3000.com/health/free-resources-available-to-quit-smoking-in-dane-columbia-counties/-/1652/23134522/-/10wah4mz/-/index.html

Columbia University to Reveal Fossil Fuel Holdings



As Columbia goes, so goes, for the most part, the surrounding area. A few months back, a Richland County Council member told me that top executives looking to move to the area dont want to talk with city or county council members; they want to sit down with the mayor. While Columbia mayors over the years have been helpful in luring new industry to the Midlands, the fact is that they have had no real power to make decisions or even assure prospects that the city will be open to making a deal. Empowering Columbias mayor would greatly enhance his ability to market the city as well as the region. A strong David mayor would be charged with crafting and articulating a clear vision for the city. Under the council-manager form, the city often gets bogged down on important issues and initiatives. <br>More: http://www.thestate.com/2013/11/24/3117387/bolton-columbia-would-benefit.html

In 1991, Columbia University was one of the first private institutions to divest from companies operating in South Africa during apartheid. Desmond Tutu, a famous social rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and a leader in the anti-apartheid movement, recently said , We could not have achieved our freedom and just peace without the help of people around the world, who through the use of non-violent means, such as boycotts and divestment, encouraged their governments and other corporate actors to reverse decades-long support for the Apartheid regime. Once again, Columbia University has the opportunity to be a leader in tackling the most pressing issue of our time: climate change. At present, people in the U.S. and around the world -- especially in the Philippines, in light of Typhoon Haiyan -- are calling upon the U.S. government and prominent institutions to boldly take a stand against the social and environmental injustices caused by climate change. <br>More: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/iliana-salazardodge/columbia-fossil-fuel-divestment_b_4305062.html

Mother Of 2 Babies Abandoned In Germany, Netherlands Identified










The match was an enthralling test of strength for two World Cup-bound teams and the draw meant the Netherlands went through 2013 undefeated. Fourth-ranked Colombia was coming off a 2-0 win over Belgium last week while web directories the Netherlands drew 2-2 with Japan on Saturday. Even before the red card and injuries, the Netherlands was playing without a host of injured players, including the driving forces of its attack - Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben. ''It's very difficult playing with 10 men against a team like that,'' Netherlands captain Kevin Strootman said. ''We worked incredibly hard to keep a clean sheet.'' It was Van der Vaart who came closest to breaking the deadlock before his injury, curling a left-foot shot over Farid Mondragon in the 7th minute only to see it hit the bar and De Jong miss the rebound. Central defender Joel Veltman, making his international debut in front of his home crowd at the Amsterdam Arena, appeared to be confident but nearly gave a goal away in the 33rd minute when he was dispossessed by James Rodriguez, whose pass to Teofilo Gutierrez found the striker in an offside position. <br>More: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/soccer/news/20131119/netherlands-colombia-friendly.ap/







The Netherlands plays Colombia in Amsterdam on Tuesday while Japan moves to Brussels to face Belgium. Van der Vaart made the most of a poor back header http://emilied.soup.io/post/366547193/In-The-File-For-This-Page-A by Maya Yoshida to put the Dutch ahead, rushing in just in time to lift it over goalkeeper Shusaku Nishikawa for the opener. Van der Vaart then became provider for fellow veteran Robben, setting the winger free on the right with a volleyed pass. The Bayern Munich forward made his trademark move - cutting inside and curling a left-footer high into the net. Again, Nishikawa had no chance. While the veterans excelled, most other Dutch players struggled through a clumsy game on a slippery, patchy pitch that laid bare some basic defensive flaws, and the favorites were lucky to escape with a draw. Japan often exposed the young Dutch defense and Osako made it count in the 43rd minute, moving free in the center and taking a pass from captain Makoto Hassebe to slot a low shot past goalie Jasper Cillessen. <br>More: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2013/soccer/wires/11/16/2050.ap.soc.japan.netherlands.1st.ld.writethru.0438/index.html

Charges have not been filed but the investigation is not yet concluded, Gilles said. He refused to give further details about the woman. http://yourtrainings.com/hinesogph/trainings/879203/ The first baby, a girl swaddled in a towel and blanket, was found on October 20, 2011, in Huerth, near Cologne. A newborn boy was found this June, lying in grass wrapped in a white blanket in the Dutch town of Roermond, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) away from Huerth. The girls DNA was tested and entered into a databank. That initially didnt help identify the mother, but Dutch authorities then found that it matched the baby boy they found in June when they were trying to identify him. After media reported widely about the two babies, links police received many tips and were able to track down the mother, Gilles said. <br>More: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/mother-of-2-babies-abandoned-in-germany-netherlands-identified-by-dna/2013/11/19/485db202-511f-11e3-9ee6-2580086d8254_story.html

Trial Of Ex-quebec Resident On Genocide Charges Stirs Ethnic Ten










'If you look at a Quebec driver's license, you can pretty much figure out which part is your name, which part is your date of birth, and where you live, and who it's from, says Iny. So I don't think it would present any unusual difficulty to law enforcement in the United States." The CAA'sU.S. counterpart theAmerican Automobile Associationsays it is in contactwith Georgia officials to have this international permit requirement removed for Quebecers. "The reason why you would want a requirement like this is for people coming from other nations with driver'slicences that you not only can't read, but maybe don't completely recognize," says Inay. "So asking for an international licence would see page bean extra step, perhaps." An International Drivers Permit, available at all CAA branches, costs $25 and is accepted at most border crossings.

The first witness to testify at the trial, Idi Hategekimana, said he remembered Mugesera saying "Tutsis are not Rwandans" in his speech.

The now-dominant political party was then an invading armed group of Rwandan Tutsis who had fled the country during earlier unrest and massacres starting in 1959. In a translation of the speech used in Canadian courts, Mugesera said: "These people called 'inyenzis' are now on their way to attack us," and "The mistake we made in 1959, when I was still a child, is to let you leave." According to Rutayisire, RPF members initially called themselves inyenzis (cockroaches) to emphasize their sneakiness and cunning, but as ethnic and political tensions rose, the word mutated into a dehumanizing anti-Tutsi slur. Today the word Tutsi is rarely uttered in public in Rwanda, along with the word Hutu and nearly all discussion of ethnic identity. <br>More: >http://www.sootoday.com/content/news/national/details.asp?c=64312/news/national/details.asp?c=64312]content

Claude Carignan says Senate discussions 'harder' than Quebec referendum negotiations



The three were eventually suspended without pay but with benefits. As Parliament returns from a one-week break, Carignan, mayor of Saint-Eustache from 2000 to 2009, and a onetime activist with the since-disbanded Action democratiquedu Quebec, sat down with Postmedia News to talk about his political experience, his approach and why he pushed for the extraordinary measures. Here's an edited transcript: [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/120160759?secret_token=s-p2fuQ" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /] Q: How does running the city of Saint-Eustache compare with being the governments Senate leader? A: Ive always said that I think a municipality is like a small laboratory of political and administrative management because the city (of Saint-Eustache) has a budget of about $60 million, 400 employees, and a population of 44,000. So theres a certain parallel, when you arrive here (at the Senate) with a budget of $90 million: human resources services, communications, security services, maintenance. Q: Around Saint-Eustache, several municipalities had (corruption) problems that we are hearing about at recent public hearings in Quebec. How did you manage to avoid all this? <br>More: http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Claude+Carignan+says+Senate+discussions+harder+than+Quebec+referendum/9163066/story.html

Watch Juventus V Real Madrid; Conte Mindful Of Extraordinary Fro










On the weekend, Bale again played setup man. He assisted on two of Madrid's three goals against Rayo Vallecano in a crucial 3-2 away victory. When discussing Madrid, it is impossible not to talk about Ronaldo's scoring form. The goal-scoring machine struts into Tuesday's fixture with five goals in his last two matches. He has scored in four of the last five contents with eight goals during that stretch. Also, he leads the Champions League with seven goals after three rounds. These days, Ronaldo not scoring is more newsworthy than the alternative. <br>More: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/champions-league-gareth-bale-real-madrid-face-juventus-193500632--sow.html







The only notable absentee was Fabio Coentrao, who was forced off against Rayo Vallecano at the weekend with an injury. Xabi Alonso's inclusion was the good news. David Ramos/Getty Images Taken off as a precaution at half-time in Vallecas on his return to the starting line-up, the team suffered in http://wallinside.com/post-8125285-nasdaq-basic-surpasses-1000-customers.html the second investing half as a result. Alonso's absence has been one of the major factors in Ancelotti's inability to strike the right balance in midfieldhis comeback only strengthened that point.It is now the Italian coach's job to decide who best fits into the side next to the former Liverpool midfielder. Sami Khedira has been his favoured pick in the middle of the park this season, while Luka Modric has arguably been the most impressive individually. Ancelotti has also confirmed it will be difficult to fit Alonso and Asier Illarramendi into the same midfield, via Marca . With more caution expected in the home of the Old Lady, common sense would suggest Khedira will start. <br>More: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1836380-real-madrid-how-they-will-line-up-vs-juventus-in-champions-league

Carlo Ancelotti tells Real Madrid to get back to basics against Juventus



Cristiano Ronaldo , (Gareth) Bale, (Karim) Benzema, (Angel) Di Maria, to say but a few, are extraordinary, fantastic when they have the field in front of them and room to exploit, so weve more... got to be careful and do what we did in Madrid. We have to try to avoid the mistakes we made there, and try to hurt them, but we know were up against an extraordinarily strong attack. Real Madrid defeated Juventus 2-1 when they met earlier in the group and the Italian champions are hoping to return the favors on their turf. Conte expects a classic in Turin.

Valencia ended a three-game losing streak by securing a narrow 1-0 win at Getafe thanks to Dorlan Pabon's rocket late in the first half. Pabon received a short pass 35 yards from goal and rifled a shot straight into the top corner, despite slipping as he took the shot. Striker Piti made a dramatic return to action as his brilliant last-gasp free-kick earned Granada a shock 1-0 victory over Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia. Piti, who scored 18 goals for Rayo Vallecano last term, missed the last two games through injury but he climbed off the bench in the 78th minute on Sunday before curling home a stoppage-time winner from 25 yards out.

Since then, Juventus have racked up five straight wins over their Spanish rivals. Carlos Tevez has started well for Juventus with six league goals this season, but goals have been http://www.savingsdaily.com/post/9-common-myths-about-your-student-loan a lot tougher to come by in the Champions League. Tevez's last goal in Europe's premier competition came in April 2009, when he played for Manchester United. "Has it really been that long since my last Champions League goal?" Tevez asked when presented with the fact on Monday. "If I haven't scored for four years, then let's hope that changes tomorrow." Juventus certainly needs the Argentinian to find the net as a defeat could all but end their chances of qualifying for the next stage. Juventus have just two points from three games after losing 2-1 at Madrid. <br>More: http://www.theguardian.com/football/2013/nov/04/juventus-real-madrid-champions-league
