The bank’s chairman Sergey Gorkov said: “Actually, it is surely not a motorcycle. It is rather a prototype of a platform, which has a multifaceted future.

“We believe it has prospects. We are planning to invest in this multifunctional platform. We think we will need several millions of dollars.”

He added that the hover bikes would be useful for transporting goods.

Mr Atamanov also noted that the motorbikes are already safe to use, despite being in the testing phase.

He said: “We are so confident in our developments that I am ready to convince everyone that it is already safe and it can be used for extreme sports, for races, for competitions.”

The exact figure that the Russian bank is willing to invest is not known.

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for taunting Matthew Wade during Australia’s batting collapse in their first cricket test in Dhaka.

Tamim was charged with conduct that was contrary to the spirit of the game, after giving Wade an animated send off during Bangladesh’s march towards their historic first test victory over Australia.

As Wade trudged from the ground, after being dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan shortly before lunch on day four, Tamim approached and gestured vigorously for him to hurry up.

Tamim made the most of his milestone 50th test,

scoring 71 in the first innings and top scoring with 78 in the second.

Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim suggested after the match that the Australians had attempted to run down the clock at the end of the first session on day four.

“They had aggression, but we also showed that Bangladesh can be an aggressive side,” Mushfiqur said. “They saw it in our body language, apart from how we did with the bat and ball.

Dixon, in run for council president, puts shoe banging incident in different light

October 10, 1999By Michael Olesker

SHEILA DIXON is stuck on a single tick of the clock. The years go by, but a community’s perception holds her in this awful instant, and is chilled by the memory of her famously waving a shoe and becoming a public heel.

The Baltimore City Council was drawing lines in the sand then, allegedly about redistricting, but really about race. The council chambers were packed, and voices were raised, and Dixon took off one of her shoes, waved it about and pounded a table and, in a shrill voice, cried, “The shoe is on the other foot now.”

She aimed this gesture at white members of the council, and she was symbolizing, in that phrase, in that raw gesture, not only the changed racial demographics of the city and those who run its government, but the irrationality and opportunism on both sides that sometimes accompanies such changes.

And, a decade after the fact, Dixon the West Baltimore councilwoman and now Democratic nominee for president of the City Council knows there are many in this city who have never forgotten the incident, and never forgiven her for it.

“And it’s haunted me,” Dixon said last week.

“Pardon me?” she was asked.

“It’s haunted me,” she said again.

In a decade, she has never outgrown the image of a woman who lost control, an antagonist when diplomacy was needed. And now, with the city about to change leadership, and with a white mayor taking over, questions have arisen: Could Dixon and Martin O’Malley, the front runners for the top two offices, co exist?

And, does the moment with the shoe represent the real Sheila Dixon?

“No,” she says. “It’s not me in how it was presented. And what I said was based on frustration.”

She says that hurtful, bigoted epithets had been spoken by a white colleague minutes earlier in closed council session, “fighting words, like talking about somebody’s mother.” She didn’t hear the remarks herself, Dixon says, but another colleague passed them on to her.

“I was so angry that I was gonna take off my shoe and smack [the white colleague] in the head,” Dixon says. “And the [TV] cameras were on me and I caught myself, and [Councilwoman] Vera Hall came over and said, It’s not worth it.’ And that’s when I banged the shoe on the table.”

She says she attempted to explain the gesture to a reporter later that day, but the reporter “didn’t want to hear.” In the ensuing decade, no further attempts were made to explain her side of it.

“And what it has done,” Dixon said now, “is paint people’s view of me in parts of the city. When I campaigned this summer, people said, Tell me about the shoe.’ I had doors shut in my face because of the shoe, and people were very bitter to me.

“[State Sen.] Barbara Hoffman asked about it. [Former Mayor] Don Schaefer asked about it. Places like Locust Point, which I’d never had contact with, and Hampden. The best thing was, people who pre judged me, once they began to work with me in those neighborhoods, their perception of me as a racist, they saw me for who I was, and we developed a good relationship in those areas.”

Her implication is: She wants to put racial divisions behind us. In last month’s primary, Dixon got 58 percent of the Democratic vote. Much has been made of the black crossover vote for Martin O’Malley, but a 58 percent Dixon vote indicates she must have attracted some white support from those who have moved past the shoe, or forgotten it, or never knew about it.

“Probably a combination of all three,” she says. “Look, the real Sheila Dixon is not one who wants to dwell on racial differences. I would not have been able to pass major legislation in this council if my focus was on that. I would not have been able to service my constituents.

“I spent my childhood in a mixed environment. I went to Northwest High School when there was very good rapport between blacks and whites. You had your group you hung with, but there was excellent interaction which helped me when I went to Towson State to college.”

Four years after the last racially divisive mayoral campaign, there are considerable signs that city residents have had enough of such tactics. Dixon knows it.

“We took our campaign to people who didn’t know me,” she said last week. “I ran on the idea that everybody’s at the table and has a piece of what’s going on. We have to be inclusive.

“It means we have a growing Latino community that has not had a voice and been part of the community, and a large Korean community that has not been part of the process, and African Americans shut out economically.”

She says she wants everyone at the table now. She wants to be unstuck from that moment with the shoe, when a reputation was created that needs, finally, to be left behind.

timberland mens boots uk Band says slow down on proposed mine

timberland womens boots uk Band says slow down on proposed mine

Liberal government’s treatment of the Enbridge pipeline, an area First Nations group wants its own share of benefits and promises of the highest standards for a proposed mine. About 15 members of the Simpcw First Nation held an information picket Thursday beside the Yellowhead Highway at the entrance to Vavenby to raise awareness of the Harper Creek mine. RCMP vehicles along with highway maintenance trucks took position at each end of the gathering and warned drivers to slow to 70 km/h. Few drivers or local residents bothered to pull over to hear First Nation concerns about what is otherwise considered a project that will restore the valley’s economy. The band has not taken a stand for or against the low grade mine proposed by Yellowhead Mining Inc., but it is concerned the project is being fast tracked at the expense of long term environmental concerns. “We’re not opposed to the mine,” said Simpcw Chief Rita Matthew, as cars and tractor trailers rumbled past. “We understand the economy of the valley. . . . But we don’t know they’ve (communities) been given the information we have.” Band manager Doug Brown said “there is a parallel” with Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Premier Christy Clark has set five conditions, including a fair share of benefits and the highest environmental standards if the province is to go along. get all the benefits.” The band, located about one hour’s drive south of Vavenby, has hired a raft of consultants to study everything from salmon to economic benefits. Concerns include damage to endangered mountain caribou habitat, threats to fisheries in Harper Creek and Barriere River watersheds due to potential seepage of tailings, intrusion of powerlines and roadways that would bring access for predators, hunters and recreationalists thus disrupting traditional uses, dust contamination and the prospect of a collapse of the tailings dam leading to a catastrophic slide into the North Thompson River. The mine, at one time called the world’s eighth largest untapped deposit of copper by a financial analyst, has many parallels with Ajax in Kamloops. Both are open pit, low grade copper deposits. Both entered a harmonized federal provincial environmental assessment at the same time. Unlike Ajax, however, scrutiny of potential environmental damage weighed against benefits to North Thompson communities has rested almost entirely with government officials. While Ajax has been slowed by concerns and extra studies, Harper Creek seems to have support, including from the premier. “Short term benefits are proposed employment and training opportunities,” said Matthew. “I have concerns with short term opportunities where we get people working for two or three years and they make a bit of money. What happens when it’s over?” Unlike Ajax, which is in part a brownfield site, the Harper Creek mine is proposed for wilderness areas within a few kilometres of Vavenby,
timberland mens boots uk Band says slow down on proposed mine
located about 20 minutes drive north of Clearwater. At the Vavenby General Store a few kilometres away, the band’s concerns were not shared. “I’m all for it and I’ve never heard anything negative,” store owner Debbie Barrett said of the mine and its projected 350 jobs. “I think there will be a big boom here.” Vavenby and the North Thompson River valley took a blow more than a decade ago when Weyerhaeuser Co. closed its mill here. It was worse when Canfor shut down its mill for more than two years, causing a depression. While Canfor reopened last year, residents say they want more security and more people. “There’s a lot of young men in the community who can’t find a job,” Barrett said. Pam Richie grew up in the valley and raised her two children here. She remembers when Vavenby elementary school’s yard was bustling with 120 chattering and laughing voices. Today, there are eight kids in the school, which is now reduced to a K 3 school. “It would make a lot of sense to have more families here,” she said. “I’m hoping the mine goes through,” Richie said. “My daughter needs to get employment in the summer months.” But First Nations are concerned the damage will last forever while jobs may dry up if copper prices slide. Simpcw member and former chief Fred Fortier said the mine will occupy the same geographic space as the city of San Francisco. Meanwhile, Fortier said Yellowhead Mining has pushed off talks of revenue sharing to the provincial government. “The time will come that people will stand up and say enough is enough. It’s not me or this generation it’s the seventh generation. What benefits will they receive from a hole in the ground?” BANDS DIVIDED ON CLAIMS While they share a common language and tribal council, two local Shuswap bands have competing claims on the Harper Creek mine and its potential for millions in revenues. “We’ve said, ‘produce the evidence of use and occupation,'” said Simpw First Nation member Fred Fortier. “We’re being clear: it’s about the use and occupation.” Simpcw’s reserve lands are located about one hour’s drive south of here, near Barriere. It is the closest First Nation administration and considers the north valley its traditional territory. Unlike in most parts of the region, however, there is little First Nations presence in the valley from Clearwater north to Valemount. Chief Rita Matthew said Adams Lake Indian Band has filed a claim on revenues with the province, something she said is being done without evidence. Simpcw has records from early anthropologist James Teit as well as its own archives showing tradition use and occupation of the region, she said. “We have that evidence up and down the valley.” The province has recognized Adams Lake Indian Band’s claim. “We’re saying ‘on what basis?'” In addition to dividing bands, the proposed mine is also creating divisions within bands. Former band chief Keith Matthew is now an advisor to Yellowhead Mining Inc.’s board. Fortier said he should work alongside people who are holding the company to task. “People shouldn’t build their retirements on the backs of the Simpcw people, friends or not,” he said.

timberland stockists Ban asbestos brakes now

timberland shoes for women Ban asbestos brakes now

OTTAWA Jim Brophy can’t understand why Canada isn immediately outlawing asbestos in automotive brake parts and other products.

It not as if the grave risks from exposure to the fibrous mineral haven been long known, says the workplace health expert. Nor is it a case that safer substitutes aren available.

Canada, once a leading producer of asbestos, announced in December it would join more than 50 other nations in prohibiting the import, export and use of the cancer causing substance. In announcing the ban, Science Minister Kirsty Duncan cited evidence of the dangers of asbestos.

Government officials have signalled, however, that the ban won take effect until late 2018 because of the need for a transition period to remove asbestos products from the market.

The consequence, according to Brophy, is that more people who work on or around asbestos will develop serious illnesses in coming years.

latency here is enormous, says the University of Windsor adjunct professor and former director of the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers in Sarnia, Ont., a hotspot for asbestos disease.

day we allow these products to come into the country just extends the time frame in which this disease will arrive and be experienced by people in our population. disappeared from brakes, hood liners and other new car components in the 1990s, largely because of campaigns by auto assembly workers. But the lion share nearly 75 per cent of the $8.3 million in asbestos imports in 2015, the CLC reports is friction materials.

The Automotive Industries Association (AIA), which represents aftermarket suppliers, was among those pressing for a grace period to allow the removal of existing products from vehicles and store shelves.

AIA President Jean Fran Champagne thinks that asbestos parts will be gone from inventories long before the ban takes effect.

Two major retailers that sell to consumers and the service industry say their inventories are already asbestos free.

supplier of friction products, Rayloc, stopped using asbestos over 10 years ago, said Dufresne of

UAP Inc., operator of nearly 600 NAPA parts stores across Canada.

Canadian Tire Corp. verified with its brake parts suppliers in December that none of its products contained any of the seven asbestos derived substances to be covered by the ban, according to a statement from Kimi Walker, associate vice president of product stewardship.

Yet with no current labelling requirement for asbestos content, Brophy says people who work on brakes have no way of knowing the materials they working with or the risk. And while all provinces have guidelines for the handling of hazardous materials, he believes garages do not have even close to the kind of protections that government regulations would say would be needed. Canadian Automobile Dealers Association (CADA) has not issued any public statement on asbestos and would not say whether it offers educational programs for its members on hazardous substances.

ENACT BAN NOW

Brophy says the dangers are higher for home mechanics who likely lack any training and equipment to deal with asbestos, that why the only real way to effectively deal with this is to enact the ban and make sure that these products are not sold on the Canadian market. the consequences of its use will continue to surface for decades in the form of the lung disease asbestosis and cancers such as mesothelioma, as well as gastrointestinal and other cancers that aren always linked to a patient asbestos history.

full extent of the harm that has been caused is so under reported and so under recognized, says Brophy, even when you say that it the leading cause of occupational disease and death in this country, you actually underestimating the full extent of it.

timberland classic Baltimore shop known worldwide for magic touch in shoe repair

timberland sandal Baltimore shop known worldwide for magic touch in shoe repair

A business as old as its name with a cash register that doesn’t go any higher than $9.99, Century was founded above the old Wyman Shoe Store on Lexington Street by Sam and Izzy Myerberg, brothers new to America from Poland.

The Park Avenue site is the last building still in use from a business that once had a dozen stores around town, a shoe repair garage where battered wingtips and wobbly Cuban heels ride between floors in a wooden box on pulleys.

They start out on the second floor where just about every day Isabel Bradley uses a putty knife to open packages from places such as India, St.

The work is solicited by black and white advertisements from another age, art deco ads that have appeared over the years in Vogue, Redbook, House Garden and Glamour and that run regularly today in House Beautiful.

The orders come with little notes. Mrs. Bradley, one of the handful of people with strange and varied talents who have made Century Shoe Repair known around the globe, uses them to satisfy her hobby in handwriting analysis.

Just as Century’s master cobbler Charles Jones says, he can tell someone’s personality by the way the shoes are worn out (if the backs are pushed down, the owner is probably too lazy to untie them), Mrs. Bradley says she can fathom what customers are like by the notes they write.

“I’ve made friends all over the world,” she said, admitting a particular fondness for customers who, like her, own Scottie dogs. “I’ve never met them, but I know them.”

Shoes made like fishermen’s net arrive with rips to be stitched, shoes come in for paint jobs, and shoes come in to be stretched wider and pulled longer.

They come with notes like this one from M’Lise Bulloch of New York City:

“For two months I tried to find someone to cover some shoes in the same floral print as my dress, but could not. I finally handpainted the shoes to match, but I would rather have them professionally covered. Please send me your brochure. I know that I will use your services.”

Those services are arcane and extensive: reglazing reptile leather shoes; zipper repair; hats cleaned; heel and sole work of any kind; shoes dyed or covered with fabric; attaching instep straps to “give your pumps a new look”; pointed toes made round, or round toes made into a point; shoes stretched wider or longer or made narrow;
timberland classic Baltimore shop known worldwide for magic touch in shoe repair
golf shoes to be made out of dress shoes; broken shanks replaced to correct “wobbly” heels; pumps cut down; shoes made toeless; pumps made into sandals; and all manner of handbag and luggage repair.

The work costs as little as $9.95 for dyeing and as much as $34.95 for new heels in alligator, lizard or reptile leather.

The shop even fixes old baseball gloves, but few are sent in for repair.

“If Century can’t do it, it can’t be done,” said Beatrice Nathanson, daughter of founder Sam Myerberg and the widow of Sol Nathanson, who started the mail order business.

One of Mrs. Nathanson’s early jobs for the company was posing for its brochures from the knees down.

Having outlived most of her relatives, Mrs. Nathanson is the current president of Century, assisted by her vice president and daughter, Judy Elbaum, a former nurse who is presiding over a renovation of the old store and hopes to replace the exquisite tackiness of its faded gold and black Eiffel Tower print wallpaper.

In all, Century has a dozen employees, from Walt Davenport, tearing down shoes in the basement, to Jackie Bond, repainting them on the fourth floor, where she shares space with hundreds of old shoes.

Between the top and bottom they make a stop on the third floor, where the nimble hands of 51 year old Charles Jones have at them with a small hammer and an ancient Singer sewing machine.

“I made my first pair of shoes when I was 10,” said Mr. Jones, a veteran of three decades at Century who learned the craft from his grandfather, master boot maker Henry Bowen, at the old Bowen Shoe Shop, 515 Presstman St. “People like old shoe comfort, and we give them a new shoe look.”

Mr. Jones, who used to sing do wop in town with the Vel Tones,

recalled one lady for whom he had changed the style on an old pair of black pumps three times since 1965.

On a balmy Indian summer night in East Baltimore, the basketball teams gathered near the hoop closer to the scoreboard under the dome at the Madison Square Recreation Center.

The players with the logo “3NITY” in white letters on their black jerseys prepared to inbound the ball. Their opponents, the USA Christianity team clad in gold jerseys, set up their defense. Team 3NITY whose players wore numbers 3, 13, 23, 33 and 43 trailed, 57 55. Three seconds showed on the game clock.

The referee blew his whistle to start play. No. 3 on 3NITY’s team inbounded the ball to No. 13, who dribbled to the right side of the key. No. 13 then tossed the ball back to No. 3, who launched a shot from the top of the key and well beyond the three point line with two tenths of a second showing on the scoreboard clock.

The crowd roared when the ball swished through the net to give team 3NITY a 58 57 victory. It was a hard fought and well earned victory for 3NITY, as well it should have been.

No. 3 had tried the shot only 10 to 15 times.

This was no ordinary basketball game. In fact, it wasn’t a game at all. It was a commercial shoot for the T3 Alpha athletic shoe, which is the brainchild of 35 year old Leonard Wood and 26 year old Vernon Woodland, two Baltimore area businessmen. The “T” in T3 stands for “trinity” and represents the passion both men have for their Christian faith. Hence the name “3NITY” on the basketball team’s jerseys, the number 3 on all those jerseys and the three seconds left on the simulated game clock.

And T3 athletic shoes on all the basketball players in the commercial.

Sun readers were introduced to Wood and Woodland in July 2006, when I wrote about them in this column. They are young black businessmen who met when they worked in cable services for sales and marketing companies. Once they saw that they were, in Wood’s words, “making other people a whole lot of money,” they decided to go into business for themselves.

They came up with the idea of the T3 Alpha as a cheaper alternative to the sky high athletic shoes they saw in stores. They got Nice Fit China Ltd. a company in the People’s Republic of China to design a sample of the shoe. That’s where their tale ended over a year ago.

Since then, Wood and Woodland visited the factory in China where the T3 Alpha will be manufactured. That was in July. In late September, they were ready for their first commercial shoot. For that, they hired another group of young black professionals.

Clevon “J Dot” Moyd directed the shoot. He studied film at the Art Institute of Atlanta and graduated this year.

“This is my second big project,” Moyd said. “The first was a film shot in Elkridge, Md.” Moyd worked audio on that film, a whodunit about the murder of a minister involved with organized crime called Who Killed Bishop Brown? Moyd was also the associate producer on a short documentary called Beatmakers that will premiere in Atlanta on Oct. 23.

Moyd said he started making his own movies when he was only 7 years old. He shot his first music video as an eighth grader at Parkville Middle School in Baltimore County. Moyd, fresh out of Atlanta and only recently back in the Baltimore area, didn’t have his own film crew to shoot the T3 Alpha commercial. For that, he, Wood and Woodland turned to 1Vision Entertainment, a film, video and photography company formed by a group of Morgan State University students in February.

Michael Washington of 1Vision Entertainment was the assistant producer for the commercial shoot. Robert Everett, Zundra Bradley and Daylan Jones made up the crew that set up the cameras, microphones and sound equipment in preparation for the shoot.

Everett, Bradley and Jones agreed to talk with me briefly before the shooting began. Everett told me why they chose the name.

“We saw all of us had the same vision,” he said. “We all had the hunger to get in the industry.”

Since the company was formed, 1Vision Entertainment has shot hip hop and R videos, short films, commercials, footage of the Jena 6 rally at Morgan and at the Congressional Black Caucus convention.

“In the future we’d like to expand on that,” Bradley said, “do more films.”

Everett, Bradley and Jones all said they had an early interest in film, but once they started taking courses at Morgan and doing the “behind the scenes” work involved in filmmaking, they knew they didn’t want to do anything else.

For Wood and Woodland, the choice to go with Moyd as a director and 1Vision Entertainment as backup crew was an easy one.

“We went with them because they didn’t charge an arm and a leg,” Wood said.

And probably, no doubt, to give another group of young black professionals just what Wood and Woodland were looking for themselves only a few years ago.

women timberland boots Baltimore doesn’t dicker in paying stores to move

To clear the way for a $350 million project to rebuild the west side of downtown, Baltimore has been generous in compensating evicted merchants even when the law hasn’t required it.

Take the case of businessman Meir A. “Gumbo” Duke, who received $165,744 to move his shoe store three doors down.

City taxpayers paid $134,752 last month for Duke’s inventory 6,956 pairs of women’s flats, heels and boots that he did not want to move his Bare Feet Shoes from 201 N. Howard St. to the store’s new home at 223 N. Howard St., outside the condemnation zone.

The city wasn’t required to pay Duke a penny because he didn’t own his building and was renting without a lease.

But Mayor Martin O’Malley has told development officials to go out of their way to treat displaced businesses well because moving could destroy livelihoods. The payments which total $9.3 million so far come as the city is looking to close fire stations and libraries because of a projected budget deficit.

Edward Wilson, a city real estate agent who handled the west side relocations, said that many merchants tried to squeeze as much money as possible out of the city.

“People end up laughing all the way to the bank,” Wilson said. “I had one case where the merchant claimed 430 items, and when I checked it was really only 312 items.”

Comptroller Joan M. Pratt said she has asked the city auditor to review the west side deals because “it appears that the money is not being wisely spent.” When told the city paid for Duke’s inventory of shoes, Pratt said, “That’s crazy. I don’t see why we had to buy his inventory. Why didn’t he just move the shoes to his new store?”

Duke, the shoe store owner, was effusive in his praise of the city. The city reimbursed him for the value of his old store’s inventory after a Nov. 7 public auction of the shoes brought in $12,506, less than he said they were worth.

“We have nothing to complain about,” said Duke, 40, of Owings Mills. “Everything is beautiful.”

As part of his compensation package, Duke received a $20,922 check from the city to move his shelves,
timberland childrens clothes Baltimore doesn't dicker in paying stores to move
mirrors and equipment about 100 feet, according to city records. This was the price a professional moving company estimated it would charge, but Duke was paid to move himself.

And the city paid another $10,000 to renovate his new store.

Pratt questioned the $20,000 “self move” payment.

“The city has contracts with moving companies that we could have paid less than that,” she said.

In Duke, the city found an interesting person on whom to exercise discretionary spending.

While running a clothing store in the District of Columbia in 1990, Duke was convicted of conspiring to deal heroin as part of a drug organization with connections to Brazil, Nigeria and Baltimore’s housing projects. Duke served as a heroin supplier to Linwood R. “Rudy” Williams, whom federal prosecutors described as the leader of one of the most violent heroin organizations in city history, according to court records.

Duke pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and possession with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine. He spent more than four years in a federal prison.

Williams is serving a life sentence on federal drug conspiracy convictions. Drug Enforcement Administration, according to federal court records.

“Rudy Williams was Public Enemy No. 1, and Meir Duke was one of his sources of heroin,” said Andrea L. attorney who helped prosecute the case against Duke.

But Duke’s conviction for drug dealing wasn’t an issue for the city.

“We can’t get into the position where we are making personal judgments about people,” said Sharon Grinnell, organizer of the west side redevelopment and chief operating officer of the Baltimore Development Corporation. “We don’t do criminal checks, we don’t do background checks. . We compensate legitimate businesses.”

Duke is one of 29 merchants and 32 landowners who have been paid to move or sell their buildings as part of the first phase of the 18 block west side redevelopment project. Dozens more merchants are to follow, and the city has asked the state for $50 million to assist in the project.

O’Malley, who as a City Council member in 1999 voted against the condemnations on the west side, has asked his administration to pay merchants more than what the federal rules require.

The Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Act of 1970 requires the government to compensate businesses displaced by public projects up to $20,000 for closing. An alternative is to pay up to $10,000 plus “actual reasonable moving expenses.”
