Brianna (spectator)Brianna: Jamaican-American/Pembroke Pines – I attended Carnival for the first time this year from the persuasion of my best friend and cousins, and it was one of the best events I have ever attended. I never want to miss another one. My favorite part was walking behind the trucks and looking at all the different costumes. I didn’t play mas because I couldn’t afford it at the time, but I definitely want to next year. To find out more about Carnival 2017, visit their website: http://miamibrowardcarnival.com/ CNW Talk Up takes it to the streets! Every week, the Caribbean National Weekly highlights issues of interest to the Caribbean American community. This week’s topic on Carnival 2017 relates to attendees and participants in the Miami Broward One Carnival held at the Miami-Dade County Fairgrounds on October 8th. #carnival2017 #miamicarnivalThis week’s question: What made you decide to participate in Carnival 2017?Adeshola (Group: Ramajay)Adeshola: Trinidadian-American/Brooklyn, NY – (Ramajay) I do it for the culture. My Mom’s from Trinidad and she always participates in Carnival. This was my first year doing it in Miami. I love Miami, so I came to celebrate. I’ve done Caribana and Barbados carnival. This one was awesome, the weather is great, the people are great, there’s a lot of Caribbean community here in Miami. Everybody’s from Brooklyn here!Priya (Group: Generation X)Priya: Belize/Plantation – (Generation X) This is my first year in Carnival itself, jumping with a band. I chose Gen X, the Music section. I’ve been to Carnival many years with my family and I thought it was a great idea for me to finally jump and experience Carnival. I’ve been to Kiddie’s Carnival, I’ve been to Miami Carnival before, but I’ve never jumped. So this is my first official Carnival and I have to say it was amazing. It definitely was worth it for me!Nicole (Group: DJunction)Nicole: Guyanese-American/West Palm Beach – (DJunction) I am a first generation born American. I participate every year. This is my 12th year in Carnival, I love being in Carnival, I love the spirit of Carnival, I love the culture of Carnival. I love Carnival. It was wonderful, I had a great time. I played with DJunction this year, my first time and I had a wonderful time. I usually play with One Island, but I had a beautiful time.Sharmaine (Group: Fun Generation)Sharmaine: Guyana/Tampa – (Fun Generation) My family is Guyanese, my husband is Jamaican, and my father is Trinidadian. I love my culture and just being able to dress up and come out, and enjoy and show off what the Caribbean culture is all about, I was so down for it. This is my first time in probably 20 years, I played mas as a child and I haven’t played as an adult, so I was just all for it this year. I’m with Fun Generation in the section Crave.Kimberley (Group: Mascot International)Kimberley: Jamaica/Fort Lauderdale – (Mascot International, Full Moon section) Honestly, it’s actually my first time jumping in Carnival. I got the opportunity from a friend of mine, she designed all of this and she said “I want you to model for my band,” and then she said “would you like to jump in Carnival this year?” and I’m like, “Yes” because I never jump in Carnival before, so that is how I ended up getting a costume. I went to Carnival in Jamaica only once. This is really a good experience.Quimey (spectator)Quimey: Trinidadian-Uruguayan/Miami – It’s fun, I like the environment; everyone is dancing. I feel very comfortable. This is my first time. I’ve been to somewhat of a Carnival, not like this, but something like this. I’m Hispanic and Trinidadian, from Uruguay and Trinidad. I’ve never even been to Trinidad, but I will now! All of our friends go to Carnival. I didn’t play in a band, but I dressed up because I like to stand out and this is what I like to wear.Krystal (spectator)Krystal: Guyanese-Cuban/Miami – I love how everybody just dresses up and comes out, has a good time, and nobody is judging anybody. We’re just here for a great experience, to be a part of Carnival. It’s something that we’ve been doing for generations and it’s amazing. This is my first time. I go to a lot of Carnival events that have to do with soca, dancehall, reggae; I’m always there so it only makes sense to come to Carnival 2017, to be a part of the moment. I’m not with a band, I dressed up because it’s fun; you have to play the part.Matthieu (Group: Generation X)Mathieu: American/Atlanta – (Generation X) My wife is from Trinidad so we decided to come out. Her whole family is out here, friends, everything. I did Carnival once before like three years ago, here. So I’m a sophomore. This year was awesome, I love it and I want to do it every year. I am with the group Generation X in the section Abstract.
Bueno won her first major at Wimbledon in 1959, when she was 19. In “Tennis Encyclopedia,” Bud Collins described her at the time as “the incomparably balletic and flamboyant Bueno.”“Volleying beautifully, playing with breathtaking boldness and panache, the lithe Brazilian became the first South American woman to win the Wimbledon singles,” Collins wrote.Adored in Brazil after winning the trophy, Bueno became one of the symbols of the country’s change from mostly rural to urban and modern.Bueno was ranked No. 1 in the world in 1959, 1960, 1964 and 1966. She was the first non-American woman to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same season.Billie Jean King, who beat Bueno in the 1966 Wimbledon final and later helped start a women’s professional tennis tour, said the Brazilian was one of the players that made tennis less of a men’s game.ADVERTISEMENT Maybe a Dennis Rodman sighting at Trump-Kim Singapore talks?

She had been suffering from mouth cancer since last year and was hospitalized in May. (AP Photo,File)ASAO PAULO — Maria Bueno, a Brazilian tennis great who won three Wimbledon singles titles and four at the U.S. Open in the 1950s and 1960s, and helped usher in modern women’s tennis, has died after battling mouth cancer. She was 78.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial “There was a gasp from one end of the court,” Bueno recalled years later. “And the people at the other end didn’t know why, until I changed ends and served from there.“Later I wore panties that resembled the club colors, which outraged the club committee and they brought in the all-white clothing rule.”Born in Sao Paulo, Bueno started playing tennis at the age of 6 and entered her first tournament at 11. At 17, she left Brazil for the United States.Despite being considered a future star after winning national tournaments at a young age, Bueno was shy about her achievements.“I’m not good,” she told The Associated Press after being named Female Athlete of the Year in 1959. “I’m afraid of everyone I play.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?

She helped lay the groundwork for what was to come,” King told Bueno’s website in 2009. “She deserves to be recognized.”Bueno said men were key to her game.“It was only because I trained with men that I developed my speed. People said I looked effortless, but that was from training with guys,” said Bueno, who played without a coach.From 1957-67, a decade in which she was dominating on the tennis court, Bueno won 65 singles tournaments, 90 doubles titles and 15 in mixed doubles. She was runner-up in 45 other competitions.Injuries and illness shortened her career, including spending eight months in bed in 1961 because of hepatitis.Her last major title came in 1968 when she won the doubles title at the U.S. Open alongside Margaret Court — one of her biggest rivals in singles.Bueno and Court faced each other in five major finals, with Bueno winning two of them.Bueno’s career took a downturn as the Open era started in 1968 because of arm and leg injuries. But she returned to tennis years later and won her final tournament at the Japan Open in 1974.Off the court, Bueno also had an interest in fashion and played in dresses tailored by English couturier Ted Tinling.In 1964, Bueno surprised the public at Wimbledon with a white Tinling dress that had a pink underskirt and matching pink underwear.

Like most projects heading for the 2011 Solar Decathlon in Washington, D.C., Purdue University’s INhome is designed to address regional climate conditions and cultural expectations. Purdue is located in West Lafayette, Indiana, in the west-central part of the state, where traditional-looking suburban homes with attached garages find favor among home buyers. “There’s a lot of snow up in Indiana right now,” Team Purdue’s project manager, Kevin Rodgers, told Fine Homesbuilding’s Justin Fink back in January during an interview at the International Builders’ Show. “I would love to have an attached garage.” In addition to the nod to tradition, an attached garage (which, under competition rules, doesn’t count as conditioned space), and the Indiana-referenced name of the project, IN Home’s other concession to regional preference is that the building – in contrast to many other Solar Decathlon houses – is relatively deep rather than long and narrow. The aim was to make the home’s 984 sq. ft. of interior seem as spacious as possible, and to exploit the roomy feeling created by the building’s open floor design and its vaulted ceiling, with operable clerestory windows, over the living room and kitchen areas. Two bedrooms make up the bulk of the private area, and there is a centrally located bathroom connected to the home’s “wet core” of plumbing fixtures. Live at the International Builder’s ShowFrom the Hoosier state to the mall Rodgers does note that, as appealing as it might be to its occupants, the depth of the building does increase the challenges the team will face when it comes time to pack and ship the structure to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The building breaks up into four somewhat bulky shipping components: one for the living room, one for the kitchen and bathroom areas (including the wet core), one for the two bedrooms, and one for the garage. “It’s tougher to transport,” Rodgers says, “but I think it’s better for livability.” Team Purdue’s path to the Solar Decathlon began in mid-2009, when students in the school’s Mechanical Engineering Technology department began researching the Department of Energy’s competition requirements. By fall 2009, the university had created an independent study course whose students were charged with developing a Solar Decathlon proposal. Their success at that task has helped make Team Purdue the first team from Indiana to qualify for the competition and, obviously, has brought it to within six months of showing off what Rodgers says will be a remarkably comfortable net-zero-energy dwelling. MORE INFORMATION Purdue team Web page DOE Web page for Purdue Purdue team Facebook page GBA Resource Guide for 2011 Solar Decathlon Leaning hard on PV INhome will rely entirely on passive features and photovoltaics for its energy needs. Power derived from an 8-kW array on the front, south-facing roof will be supplemented by a smaller, steeply angled array of bifacial PV panels mounted over a reflective surface on the back roof. Triple-glazed windows, made by Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork of Wausau, Wisconsin, will be used throughout, with solar heat-gain coefficients that vary by orientation. The house will be equipped with an energy-recovery ventilator. In mild weather, the clerestory windows can be opened to increase ventilation, and a trellis overhang that will be mounted near the large windows on the front of the house is designed to shade them during the summer months. Rodgers tells GBA that INhome’s shell will be constructed of structural insulated panels to R-24 on the exterior walls and R-50 on the roof. The panels are being made by Thermocore, based in Mooresville, Indiana. The project’s airtightness goal, Rodgers adds, is 1 air change per hour at 50 Pascals pressure difference. Once the Solar Decathlon is over, INhome will be shipped back to West Lafayette, although its future beyond that is still being worked out. “We’re not going to scrap the house at all,” Rodgers says. “We’re looking at a few organizations, possibly donating the home. But the goal is to look at it long term, see how we did with the design and performance, and wrap it up with some master’s theses and dissertations.”

The Mumbai-Bengaluru National Highway-4, that was closed near Kolhapur in Maharashtra for last six days, was partially opened for traffic on Monday after the flood waters receded and thousands of stranded trucks carrying essential commodities were allowed to move. Traffic movement was also allowed between Kolhapur and Belgaum in Karnataka. Precaution is being maintained in the deluge-hit states as most rivers are in a spate and water is being released from reservoirs.

CALGARY – The president and CEO of WestJet says the threat of a strike by its pilots is over.Ed Sims said the Calgary-based airline and the union that represents the pilots have agreed to a settlement process that will involve a federal mediator.If necessary, WestJet and the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) have agreed to use final and binding arbitration.“We are pleased with the removal of the threat of strike action, we are grateful for the role played by the government, both with their mediation services and with the offer of support with arbitration,” Sims said Friday at Calgary International Airport.“The message I can give all Canadians is that they can continue to book in 100 per cent confidence that no strike action will threaten their travel plans.”The two sides had resumed contract talks on Tuesday.The pilots were legally able to launch a strike last Saturday, but committed not to disrupt passenger travel plans over the Victoria Day long weekend as a goodwill gesture.The ALPA represents about 1,500 pilots at WestJet’s main service.Sims said WestJet hopes to reach a deal with the union no later than the end of June.He said the uncertainty about a possible strike has cost the company “tens of millions of dollars.”WestJet has said its bargaining team was focused on getting a sustainable agreement that benefits pilots, WestJet customers and the company as a whole.The airline had promised to refund tickets if flights were cancelled in the event of a strike.WestJet has said that its bookings have slowed since the union said it would seek a strike mandate, which was supported by 91 per cent of its members.WestJet’s planned launch of its Swoop ultra-low cost carrier has been a source of contention between pilots and the company.Earlier this year, the union won a Canada Industrial Relations Board challenge to the company’s proposed policy to offer pilots a two-year leave of absence if they go to fly for Swoop.The ALPA complained that the policy was a significant change in the company’s terms of employment and an interference with the union’s right to represent the pilots.Companies in this story: (TSX:WJA)
