I don’t think Vilhena is an international either. I think that is a run-your-rot show. He plays simple football running with the ball and then a bit wide. You can’t do it anymore. “A player like Georginio Wijnaldum is corrected by ten other players at Liverpool. Vilhena was able to run and fly at Feyenoord. People in the media said he was doing so well, so he started to believe in himself. You don’t have time for that at a club like Liverpool.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Metro Vancouver cities residents to oppose Trans Mountain route at hearings

first_imgVANCOUVER – Municipalities and residents in British Columbia are set to argue that the proposed route of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion would damage sensitive ecosystems, harm public parks and trails and adversely impact homeowners.The National Energy Board will hold hearings starting Monday on the route that would run through Burnaby, Coquitlam and north Surrey. Burnaby is a major opponent of the project and has publicly battled Kinder Morgan Canada (TSX:KML).Burnaby will present for three days at the hearings, saying in a statement it will demonstrate the “significant and unacceptable” financial, environmental and social risks of the company’s proposed route through the city.“Because of the damage and disruption it would cause to the city and Metro Vancouver’s environment, economy and neighbourhoods — in perpetuity — the City of Burnaby is determined to ensure that this route is never approved,” said Mayor Derek Corrigan in the statement.The Government of Canada approved the 1,147-kilometre pipeline project in November 2016 along a roughly 150-metre wide corridor. The detailed route approval process will determine the exact placement of the new pipeline.People who anticipated their lands may be adversely affected by the route were able to file statements of opposition. The National Energy Board began holding hearings on the route in late November and has approved some segments in eastern B.C. and Alberta.The hearings starting Monday cover a hotly contested Metro Vancouver portion of the route. Several residents and a land-surveying company are scheduled to speak at a Burnaby hotel over eight days, before a second set of hearings is held in March.In documents filed with the energy board, Burnaby says the proposed route passes through conservation areas and parks that provide critical green space and extensive trail systems to the public. Significant amounts of trees and vegetation would be removed and sensitive creek and river ecosystems would be impacted, the city says.The existing Trans Mountain pipeline has carried oil from near Edmonton to a marine terminal in Burnaby since 1953. The company tried to double the new line with the existing pipeline where possible, but in Burnaby, the old line runs beneath neighbourhoods and city streets, said spokeswoman Ali Hounsell.“Throughout the Lower Mainland, the cities have kind of grown up around the pipeline,” said Hounsell. “In some cases … it’s actually less impactful to go through areas that are not where the existing pipeline is.”However, the proposed route does run along municipal roads in Coquitlam. The city says in documents filed with the energy board that the route will negatively impact municipal operations and potentially incur millions of additional costs for routine operations, maintenance and rehabilitation work.The route in Coquitlam does not parallel the existing pipeline, said a Trans Mountain spokesperson.She noted that the federal government’s approval came with 157 conditions, including that the company create environmental protection plans and minimize impacts in sensitive areas. The company is also committed to returning any environment it has disturbed back to its previous state, including replanting trees, she said.A group of Burnaby residents remain concerned about the project’s impact on green space. Six households are set to speak about the portion of the route that runs through a forested area that buffers their quiet residential neighbourhood from a Shell Canada tank farm.The forested area is protected by a statutory covenant that obligates Shell to maintain it as a buffer. In documents filed with the energy board, the residents say the pipeline construction, including plans to remove trees, potentially violates the covenant.Karim Dossa writes that one of the main reasons he and his wife bought their house was the pristine green belt, and over the years, they have witnessed a “myriad of wildlife” including bears, coyotes and a variety of birds and insects. He adds he’s concerned about spills or accidents.“As landowners who have invested our life savings in the house, we are traumatized by the impact this project will have on the quality of our lives, the value of our land and home and the legacy we wish to leave to our children and grandchildren.”Shell Canada said it has been in touch with Kinder Morgan regarding their proposed pipeline route and discussions are ongoing.At least one scheduled participant has already resolved its issues directly with the company. Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver is scheduled to speak Friday but is not planning to attend, said director of operations Stephani Baker.The organization had raised a number of concerns about construction in a green space that borders 27 of its townhouses in Burnaby. But after an arbitrated meeting in December, Kinder Morgan addressed all its concerns, including committing to add an alternate path for children to walk to school, said Baker.“From our perspective, the best option was to have a face-to-face conversation,” she said. “They were very willing to accommodate and work with us going forward.”James Stevenson, a spokesman for the national energy board, said the board will work as expeditiously as possible but the standard timeline for a decision following route hearings is about three months.— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version quoted a spokesperson who said the new pipeline parallels the existing right-of-way in Coquitlam. In fact, the new pipeline does not parallel the existing line.last_img read more

UN refugee agency welcomes US House resolution on Colombias displaced

17 July 2007The United Nations refugee agency today welcomed a resolution recently passed by the United States House of Representatives calling for an increase in aid from Washington for millions of displaced people in Colombia. The United Nations refugee agency today welcomed a resolution recently passed by the United States House of Representatives calling for an increase in aid from Washington for millions of displaced people in Colombia.“The resolution – which received widespread backing – recognizes 2007 as the Year of the Rights of Displaced People in Colombia and offers support to help the victims rebuild their lives,” said Ron Redmond, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).“It is the first time the US Congress has singled out forced displacement in Colombia as one of the worst humanitarian crises on the American continent,” he noted.An average of 18,000 Colombians are uprooted by violence every month, with more than 1 million forced to flee in the past five years alone, according to UNHCR. The resolution, which next goes to the Senate for approval, calls on the Colombian Government and the international community to prioritize discussion of the humanitarian consequences and internal displacement and recommends that the US increase aid for emergency and long-term assistance to the victims. Non-governmental organizations say the total number of internally displaced people in Colombia is as high as 3.8 million. read more

Two Sri Lankan women saved from traffickers in Nepal

The CIB had raided Hotel Bishwonath in Tridevi Marga, Thamel and rescued the girls from Kilinochchi district in Sri Lanka.They were lured by a broker to be sent to Canada using Nepal as the transit point. Amid a growing trend of Nepali men and women being trafficked via Sri Lanka, two Sri Lankan women have been rescued from the clutches of traffickers who tried to send them to various foreign destinations using Nepal as the transit point, the Kathmandu Post reported today.The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police rescued two Sri Lankan women from a hotel in Thamel on August 25. Both of them left for their homes on Thursday. The CIB, with support from the International Organi-zation for Migration (IoM) and Shakti Samuha, an NGO working against trafficking, rescued the women aged 24 and 33. They had arrived in Nepal on May 21. “The duo was brought to Kathmandu some three months ago by a broker who promised to send them to Canada. They were first taken to Indonesia,” said Nepal Police Spokesperson SP Mira Chaudhary. Upon their arrival in Kathmandu, the Sri Lankan broker abetted by a Nepali man kept them in the hotel before disappearing. The girls knew that they were duped only after the hotel owner presented them with a bill of Rs300,000 including the cost of their stay of days.According to Dilip Koirala, legal and training coordinator at Shakti Samuha, the girls said in their statements that the hotel owner had taken away Rs20,000 each, promising them visa extension.Many women and men are found to have been trafficked to various Gulf countries via Colombo. Traffickers use the route for lax airport security and easy visa processing for Nepali nationals in Sri Lanka. A team from the Home Ministry including Nepal Police officials visited Sri Lanka two years ago to discuss the rise in trafficking via the country. “Nepal is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking,” stated a recent report of the US Department of State’s annual Trafficking in Persons.

Annan echoes concerns about morning after possible conflict with Iraq

Various national leaders are concerned about the possible consequences of a conflict with Iraq, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan told reporters today as he entered UN Headquarters.Asked about the costs of an eventual conflict with Iraq, the Secretary-General declined to speculate, pointing out that they would be difficult to predict. “I know many people are worried about unexpected consequences, and the question is – the morning after,” he said. “I would not want to throw out any guesses, but I am concerned as well.”Pressed about those concerns, he replied, “What sort of Iraq do we wake up to after the bombing, and what happens in the region? What impact could it have? These are questions leaders I have spoken to have posed.”When asked what initiatives the United States and the United Kingdom might bring to the UN before taking any military action against Baghdad, the Secretary-General said he had spoken to the leaders of both countries, but suggested it would be best to wait and see what the US President would say during his speech to the General Assembly on Thursday. Mr. Annan also emphasized the appropriateness of the UN Security Council pronouncing itself on the issue of Iraq. “I think it is important to stress that the Council, which has been seized with this Iraqi issue for so long, should have something to say,” he said. read more

SMMT calls for motor traders to be licensed

SMMT today urges the government to set up a compulsory licensing system for motor traders. Under the proposal, any company selling, repairing or servicing cars would have to show it works to a set of minimum standards before being granted a licence to trade. Regular inspections, by properly funded trading standards officers, would ensure standards are maintained and consumers receive high quality service.The call for compulsory licensing comes a year after a DTI task force was set up to look at measures to improve the service consumers receive from those servicing and repairing cars. In publishing an initial consultation, the task force has put forward a proposal for a ‘good garage scheme’, where garages volunteer to sign up to a set of standards.But while SMMT agrees that minimum standards are needed, a voluntary scheme will not go far enough to police those who consistently fail the consumer. Only a compulsory licensing scheme will force those who provide poor service to improve or to stop trading altogether.‘On paper a voluntary scheme might seem like a good idea, and the quality end of the market will readily sign up to a set of standards. Others will simply ignore it and carry on regardless,’ said SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan. ‘As things stand, anyone can set themselves up in used car sales, repair and servicing without proper training, equipment or on-site facilities. A well-enforced and compulsory licensing system is the only way we can ensure that those who provide shoddy service are weeded out and removed from the market.’ SMMT recommends that the Code of Practice for the Motor Industry is used by the government as a starting point for new motor trader standards. The Code, which has Office of Fair Trading (OFT) approval and which all members of SMMT follow, has comprehensive provisions for new and used car sales, and sets minimum standards for aftersales servicing and repairs.Today’s task force findings come a year after the OFT published its Car Servicing and Repairs report. The report, which included a survey of 2,726 consumers, found that the vast majority of customers were satisfied with the service they had received in the last six months. Overall satisfaction with both servicing and repair was reported as ‘very high’; 92 per cent of services and 86 per cent of repairs resulted in a satisfied customer.However, the experiences of those surveyed were not mirrored in a general perception of the industry, according to the OFT findings. Qualitative research showed that the industry does not enjoy a good reputation, with past experiences and other people’s problems helping to shape negative views.ends.Notes to editors: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) and Scottish Motor Trade Association (SMTA) are all signatories to the OFT approved Code of Practice for the Motor Industry. All member companies are bound by its provisions. Under the Code, a dispute may be referred to the relevant trade association for conciliation and, where necessary, to independent, low-cost arbitration. Last year’s OFT report into car repairs and servicing concluded: The research has shown that levels of satisfaction with recent experiences of both service and repair are high, with few problems of bills being higher than quoted or poor communication. However, from the qualitative research it is apparent that the motor industry does not enjoy a good reputation, and that customers either had bad experiences in the past, or knew people who had. (p31) Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) The Office of Fair Trading already administers a licensing system for credit companies. Under the Consumer Credit Act, all credit providers and their agents must apply for and be granted a licence before trading. Licences may be revoked by the OFT if complaints are upheld. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball takes home tournament title extends win streak to

Geoff Carlston scheduled tough for a reason. In an effort to prepare his team for Big Ten play, the Ohio State women’s volleyball coach tasked his squad with one of the hardest nonconference schedules in the country.Thus far, it’s safe to say the team has responded well.OSU took home its second straight tournament win over the weekend at the Blackbird Invitational in Brooklyn, New York, beating a pair of teams who came into the competition without a loss.On Friday, the No. 15 Buckeyes (8-1) took care of host Long Island University Brooklyn (0-7), before topping Syracuse (6-2) and No. 13 Arizona (8-1) on Saturday. After losing its season opener to Wyoming, OSU has now won eight straight matches, including three against top-15 opponents.Led by a strong defensive showing, OSU defeated previously unbeaten Arizona in four sets (25-22, 22-25, 25-22, 29-27) in its final match of the weekend.The contest proved to be a tough early-season test for Carlston’s squad, featuring 31 ties and 12 lead changes as neither team won a set by more than three points.Junior libero Valeria León came up big for the defense, helping the Buckeyes hold Arizona to a .173 attack percentage. León set a new career high with 35 digs, breaking her previous best of 32 which was set just a week earlier against Florida State. Her efforts also marked the second-best single-game total in OSU history, and the most in a four-set match.The Buckeyes also had 14 blocks against the Wildcats, tying a season high. Four Buckeyes picked up at least three total blocks, while nine different players had at least one. Senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson led the way with five blocks, while junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe had four.Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell had her third double-double of the season against the Wildcats, with a team-leading 19 kills to go along with 10 digs. Freshman setter Taylor Hughes also had a double-double — her third in as many games and fourth on the season — via 24 assists and 10 digs.Saturday’s first match was a four-set OSU win over Syracuse (25-12, 23-25, 25-23, 25-18), who had also entered the tournament undefeated before losing twice.Campbell again led the Buckeyes in points with 27, picking up 23 kills, four blocks and two service aces. Sandbothe put up big numbers as well, with 25 points on 18 kills, eight blocks (four solo) and one ace.OSU’s two freshmen — setter Taylor Hughes and outside hitter Audra Appold — continued to establish themselves as key contributors with impressive performances against the Orange. Hughes had her second of three double-doubles on the weekend on 36 assists and 10 digs, and Appold nearly had one of her own with nine kills and 11 digs.León once more led all players in digs with 22, averaging 5.5 per set.The Buckeyes didn’t have much of a problem against winless LIU Brooklyn in their first game of the weekend, rolling to a win in three sets by a combined 31 points (25-17, 25-10, 25-17).OSU never trailed in the first set, but was slow out of the gate in the second as LIU Brooklyn grabbed an early 6-3 lead. The Buckeyes were able to gather themselves, however, closing the set on a 22-4 run.A pair of senior outside hitters led the OSU offense, as Campbell had 12 kills and Katie Mitchell tacked on 11 at a .450 attacking percentage. Sandbothe continued her hot start to the season with 13.5 points on nine kills, six blocks (one solo) and one ace.The freshmen again played a big role in a win as Hughes had her second career double-double with 35 assists and 10 digs, while Appold had eight kills and three blocks.León was named the Blackbird Invitational’s most valuable player after leading all players with 71 digs (6.5 per set). For a second straight weekend, she was joined by Sandbothe (38 kills, 17 blocks) and Campbell (54 kills, 23 digs) on an all-tournament team.OSU is scheduled to wrap up its nonconference schedule in the Golden Grizzlies Invitational next weekend, facing Eastern Illinois and Western Michigan on Sept. 18, and Oakland on Sept. 19. read more

Ohio State revamps athletic academic logos

Ohio State released a new athletic logo to the public Monday, the same day it approved the use of the non-rounded in Block “O” in its academic logo. After a Board of Trustees vote Friday, the Block “O” will also take the place of the round “O” on OSU’s university seal, which is mostly seen on diplomas and official university documents. Jacquie Aberegg, assistant vice president of OSU marketing, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that school officials started working on updating the seal about two years ago. The end result was all part of OSU’s mission to give the school one notable identity that gives it the best representation of academics and athletics. “We engaged hundreds of students, alumni, faculty, staff and parents through the course of this project and looked for a visual cue,” Aberegg told the Plain Dealer. “We learned that there is a common link – that the symbol is symbolic of all of those things, the breadth and depth of the academic program and the connection to the athletics. The Block “O” is the best of our history and will help us into the future.” School officials told the Plain Dealer that changes to these university symbols will be put into effect over the next few years during which time current material, like stationary, is used up. Officials told the paper that the new logo will be applied online, to documents and on buildings, but more permanent items will not be replaced. While the Block “O” has been OSU athletic department’s logo for decades, the words “Ohio State” on the department’s symbol will be all black instead of black and white now. The academic logo has been changed to a Block “O” with the words “The Ohio State University” to the right of it. No changes were made to the OSU Alumni Association’s logo of a Block “O” with a Buckeye leaf over top of it. read more

The city and the project committee nixed their public-private agreement last month due to higher-than-expected construction bids. The project= would have cleared cars from Balboa Park’s central mesa.“We’re making strategic additions that focus on improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods, from planting more trees to removing graffiti to bolstering public safety,” the mayor said. “We’re also going to make sure that dollars set aside years ago for Balboa Park will stay in the park and go toward the many worthy projects there.”The city would use roughly $4.9 million in general fund surplus, $2.4 million in revenue from its regulation of dockless electric scooter companies and $1 million in expected revenue gained by cuts from various departments to fund the budget additions. However, the city will lose out on an estimated $1.6 million from last month’s canceled sale of the Skateworld roller skating rink,bringing the funding to $6.7 million.City Councilman Chris Cate joined Faulconer to announce the revisions and discuss his own proposed program in the revised budget to help the city’s police officers buy homes in San Diego and, as a consequence, help recruit and retain more police officers, according to Cate. The pilot program is slated to receive roughly $250,000 in city funding.“Less than 30 percent of police officers live within city limits,” Cate said. “Over the past year, I have worked to better understand police officers’ housing needs and to create a partnership with nonprofits and financial institutions that establishes a framework for this program.”The City Council’s Budget Review Committee will meet Friday for the its final scheduled meeting of the year to wrap up discussions of the proposed budget, which must be adopted by June 15.

Microsoft makes F 46 and F tools for Visual Studio 2019 generally

first_imgLast week, Microsoft announced the general availability of F# 4.6 and F# tools for Visual Studio 2019. This release comes with a new record type called Anonymous Records and also few updates in the F# Core library. F# 4.6 and F# tools for Visual Studio 2019 For the updates and development of new features in F# 4.6, the team followed an open RFC process. Writing named record types in F# was not really easy in previous versions and to address exactly that a new type is introduced called Anonymous Records. These F# record types do not have any explicit name and can be declared in an ad-hoc fashion. Updates in F# Core library In the F# Core library, updates are made to the ‘ValueOption’ type. With this release, a new attribute is added called DebuggerDisplay that helps in debugging. The IsNone, IsSome, None, Some, op_Implicit, and ToString members are added. In addition to these updates, there is now a ‘ValueOption’ module, which has the same functions the Option module has. F# tools for Visual Studio 2019 A lot of focus has been put on improving the performance of F# tools for Visual Studio, especially for larger solutions. Previously, F# compiler and tools struggled when used for larger solutions and caused a lot of memory and CPU usage. To address this problem the team has done few updates in the F# parser, reduced the cache sizes, significantly reduced the allocations when processing format strings, and more. This release also comes with a new feature that intelligently idents pasted code based on where your cursor is. You can use this feature by turning on Smart Indent via Tools > Options > Text Editor > F# > Tabs > Smart this will be on automatically.

Strikes strand travellers at Italys airports Alitalia unions call to strike on

first_img ROME — Tourists and travellers at airports across Italy are facing delays and cancelled flights, thanks to strikes by air traffic controllers and air transport workers.Italy’s flagship carrier, Alitalia, said it was cancelling some 40% of its domestic and international flights Monday. Air France, British Airways, Lufthansa and other carriers also were cancelling flights due to the four-hour work action from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. by air traffic controllers and the 24-hour strike by transport workers.It’s the first day of a difficult week for transport in Italy, with another taxi strike planned for Thursday and traffic chaos expected Saturday in Rome when the city hosts EU leaders for a summit.To make matters even worse for travellers in Italy, unions representing Alitalia workers announced an April 5 strike to protest job and salary cuts that are part of the company’s plans to relaunch the struggling airline.Nino Cortorillo of the Filt-Cigl union came out of a meeting Friday with management at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport saying workers would strike to protest plans to lay off more than 2,000 ground personnel and slash the salaries of flight personnel by 25 to 35%.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughtsThe 2,000 jobs on the block would reduce office staff by half and ground staff by 20 per cent, the airline said in a statement. Alitalia employs 12,500 people worldwide.Alitalia CEO Cramer Ball defended the cuts in a statement, saying “headcount reductions are a painful but necessary action that, alongside other cost reductions, will stabilize our financial situation and create long-term sustainability.”Unions are seeking to meet with the Italian government as soon as Monday to discuss alternatives for relaunching Alitalia.Media reports have suggested the state-backed investment bank could takea stake and inject cash into the carrier, but Cortorillo rejected short-term salvage measures, saying the airline’s long-term health needs to be addressed.The struggling airline was taken over nearly three years ago by Etihad Airlines, which is based in Abu Dhabi, after being run by an all-Italian consortium led by banks Unicredit and Intesa Sanpaolo. Though Etihad runs the airline, the consortium still retains a 51% stake in the carrier.More news:  Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyThe business plan approved by the Alitalia board this week includes 1 billion euros (1.07 billion) in cost-cutting measures over three years that are aimed at helping the airline better compete with low-cost carriers that have captured nearly half of the Italian market.Alitalia said Friday that two-thirds of those cuts would be achieved through non-labour-related costs.The plan envisages a 30 % bump in revenue to 3.7 billion euros and profitability by 2019.Alitalia plans to reduce its narrow-body planes by 20 while refitting the remainder of the fleet with more seats, and introduce services on domestic and European flights that are common to budget carriers, including charges for meals, priority boarding and preferred seating.A full-service model would be retained for long-haul flights. The airline said it would buy six new long-haul aircraft during 2019-2021, on top of two planned by next year, to service 10 new routes requiring up to 500 more crew members.

Correction AP Spanish Stylebook story

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of The Spanish Stylebook currently has more than 3,500 entries on topics including finance, sports, entertainment and fashion.The original AP Stylebook in English, which first came out in 1953, has long been the gold standard of style reference books in the journalism industry, with paperback copies still commonly scattered around the newsrooms of media outlets in the United States and the world. Now also online, the English Stylebook is more than just a collection of rules and has been described as part dictionary, part encyclopedia and part textbook for writers and editors.With 486 pages containing 4,825 entries, the English-language version of the AP Stylebook is recognized worldwide as an essential reference for good writing. With the Spanish-language version, the original concept remains: to provide a uniform presentation of the printed word, to make a story written anywhere understandable everywhere.AP editors said the Spanish Stylebook aims to unify standards for that language in order to improve communication among speakers of the language worldwide.“Our objective with this stylebook is to apply a universal Spanish and counter the use of regionalisms that in many occasions cause confusion,” said Jorge Covarrubias, a veteran editor with the AP’s Spanish news service and among the authors of the Stylebook. Marjorie Miller, AP’s Editor for Latin America and the Caribbean, called the reference book “an essential tool” for Spanish language media, some of which she said had tried to translate the English Stylebook themselves.“We were hearing from a lot of clients that there was a need for this,” she said.Miller noted that because it is online the Stylebook can be continually updated to incorporate new terms and usage with input from users.Spanish words can differ dramatically from country to country, and users of AP’s Spanish Stylebook will be able to discover the different meanings of words such as “guagua,” which means “bus” in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, but “baby” in the Southern Cone. The Stylebook notes that in Spanish, a swimming pool is called “alberca” in some countries, and “pileta” or “piscina” in others.The guide also includes newly minted terms from the world of online social media, such as “tuit” for Tweet, or “emoticono” for emoticon.AP’s standards editor, Thomas Kent, stressed the need to use Spanish with precision, including in reference to immigration issues. While AP’s Spanish Stylebook allows the use of “illegal immigrant,” the term must be used with care, Kent said. The term does not fit, he said, in the case of a child brought to the United States by parents who entered the country illegally. He noted that the Stylebook allows many different terms to describe an individual’s precise legal status.Edward Schumacher-Matos, NPR’s ombudsman and founder of the Spanish media company Rumbo Newspapers/Meximerica Media, said different terms are necessary to describe a wide range of immigrant experiences.“I understand that there are people who would rather not use the term `illegal immigrant,’ but there are others who understand it that way and prefer to see it described that way,” said Schumacher-Matos.Still being studied is the difference in how accent marks are handled by the AP’s two Stylebooks.AP’s Spanish service uses accent marks common to the written language. But AP’s English-language stories do not use accents for Hispanic names or other Spanish words for technological reasons. Accents don’t transmit through all computer systems of members in the AP cooperative or other English-language subscribers, and can sometimes show up as garble in newspapers and websites. AP launches its first Spanish-language stylebookFirst AP Spanish-language stylebook launched for journalists, writers, editors and scholarsEds: With AP Photos.By DAMASO GONZALEZAssociated PressNEW YORK (AP) _ Spanish-language journalists can now learn that the correct word for channel-surfing is “zapeo,” sexting is best written in their language as “sextear,” “submarino” is an accepted term for waterboarding and Thanksgiving day is accurately translated as “Dia de Accion de Gracias.”Those and thousands of other terms are included in the first-ever Spanish Stylebook published by The Associated Press, designed as the go-to reference guide for journalists, writers, editors and scholars of the language spoken by an estimated 450 million people globally.The online stylebook was presented at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York, with a panel of editors from the news cooperative and other media organizations discussing the intricacies of writing in Spanish.“I think the media has a moral responsibility to use the correct Spanish, because it is the only thing we can bequeath to future generations,” Isaac Lee, news editor for the Spanish-language television station Univision, said at the Monday presentation.
