Maryland Defeats Florida International 43-10

"It was a lot of fun on the offensive side of the ball and the defense was flying around as well," Brown said. Maryland moved 50 yards on its first possession before Brad Craddock made a short field continue goal. Sam Miller fumbled the subsequent kickoff, setting up another field goal for a 6-0 lead. Florida International's first score in the Turner Era came when Sergio Sroka kicked a 32-yard field goal after Maryland's William Likely mishandled a punt. Brown answered with a 29-yard touchdown run around left end, the final play of an 86-yard drive in which Diggs ran for 26 yards with a pitch from Brown off the option. On the first snap of the second quarter, Brown put a nice touch on a 25-yard toss to Long in the right side of the end zone, making it 20-3. Later, Brown fumbled in the pocket and FIU recovered on the Maryland 25.

Americans 65 and older qualify for Medicare, the federal healthcare program for the elderly. For the poor and disabled younger than 65, Medicaid may offer coverage. Expansion of Medicaid, a joint state and federal health insurance program, was a keystone of President Barack Obamas healthcare law and took center stage during Floridas legislative session this year. The Senate supported a bipartisan plan to accept federal money to let Floridians obtain insurance through a state-subsidized system. House Republicans insisted on an alternative plan to use $300 million in state money to buy basic coverage for 130,000 low-income Floridians. The two sides were unable to strike a deal and passed on an estimated $50 billion in federal funds over the next 10 years. shameful In response to the latest census data, House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, issued a statement Thursday calling Republican legislative leaders refusal to accept the federal aid inexcusable and shameful. Thurston said Medicaid expansion would have provided coverage to more than a million low-income Floridians: The Legislatures failure to expand health coverage continues to punish working families and small businesses throughout Florida.

Two things at stake Florida obviously can't afford to take a loss against a MAC opponent to kick off the season; the Gators have lost once to a MAC team, ever: a 16-7 beating by undefeated Miami in the 1973 Tangerine Bowl. Since then, Florida had beaten each of its MAC foes by at least 20 points until a 27-14 win over Bowling Green to open last season. The "style points" aren't terribly important to pollsters in Week 1, but it would be nice for fans to see Florida cruise here.

New Zealand reduces carbon emissions target

16 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman said Friday that the country's armed forces had played a key role in providing humanitarian aid and capacity building in Pacific island nations during Exercise Pacific Partnership 2013. The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) had successfully led and coordinated the Kiribati and Solomon Islands phases of the multinational exercise, which has recently ended, Coleman said in a statement. "NZDF personnel on the ground completed a number of key engineering, medical and dental tasks, helping to make a real difference to people's lives in the Pacific," said Coleman. "It is important that New Zealand plays its part in exercises like Pacific Partnership, so New Zealand, along with our international partners, remains ready to provide an effective multinational response when disaster strikes." More than 300 NZDF personnel, three New Zealand navy ships and three New Zealand air force aircraft took part in Exercise Pacific Partnership 2013 alongside military personnel from the U.S., Australia, Canada, Colombia, France, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and South Korea. Led by the U.S., the Pacific's largest humanitarian aid and disaster preparedness exercise ran from May to August in the host nations of Samoa, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, continue Kiribati and Solomon Islands.

The cardboard cathedral has replaced the neo-Gothic structure that was destroyed in the massive Christchurch earthquake in 2011. The quake has claimed 185 lives in the second largest city of New Zealand. Japan ese designer Shigeru Ban (Credit: Reuters) The cardboard cathedral was designed by Shigeru Ban, a Japan ese architect who was praised for his innovative structural design. The opening and dedication of New Zealand's cardboard cathedral is a major milestone in the ongoing recovery of the city from the 6.3 earthquake which pretty much leveled the downtown area. Christchurch Cathedral before and after the earthquake (Credit: Wordpress.com/Deardannynalliah) Acting Dean Lynda Patterson said the old cathedral before the earthquake hit Christchurch was a great symbol in so many ways. Ms Patterson said the cardboard cathedral's opening is a sign of Christchurch's rebuilding efforts. The opening of the Japanese-designed cathedral restored some semblance of order for the community. Ms Patterson said the cardboard cathedral will be a place where people can come in and contemplate in the middle of downtown. The newly opened cathedral in New Zealand was built from cardboard tubes measuring 600 millimetres in diameter and coated with water-resistant polyurethane and flame retardants. The innovative cardboard cathedral has a simple A-frame structure. The cathedral can accommodate 700 visitors and churchgoers. Despite it being made from cardboard, the cathedral can last up to 50 years. The Anglican Church in New Zealand plans to use the cardboard structure for at least 10 years while it is in the process of building a more permanent replacement for the quake-destroyed cathedral. The cardboard cathedral has a concrete base with tubes holding up the two sides of the A-frame structure. Containers were also placed to secure the walls of the cathedral. On one end of the cathedral, visitors will see a polycarbonate roof and stained glass to protect the structure from the harsh elements. Cardboard cathedral in New Zealand (Credit: Christchurch Cathedral) The cardboard cathedral is said to be the most ambitious project of Japanese designer Mr Ban. He is known for his reputation as a master of "emergency architecture" for using low-cost and readily available materials to build structures especially in areas struck by disaster as in the case of Christchurch and his homeland, Japan.

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group : ANZ Profit Rises 7%

It had previously indicated that it would look at a cut of 10 percent to 20 percent. "In deciding this target, the government has carefully balanced the cost to New Zealand households and businesses against taking ambitious action to tackle climate change," Climate Change Minister Tim Groser said in a statement. Last November, New Zealand said it would commit to an emissions reduction target under the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is not a legal treaty, rather than sign up to second deal under the Kyoto Protocol. It had previously said its target would be influenced by global progress in tackling emissions, particularly in major developing economies such as China and India. United Nations climate talks in South visit Africa in 2011 agreed to sign an international deal in 2015 that would impose binding emission cuts from 2020. "Taking this 2020 target allows us to take action in the interim, while the shape of this new agreement is being determined," http://craigzpdl.wordpressy.pl/?p=10 Groser said.

The company is pitching it as a cheaper, lighter alternative to helicopters, which it says might be of use to first responders in reaching disaster victims. Greg Tyrrell, the company's R&D manager, told me he expects people will find more uses for jetpacks as the technology evolves. "If you go back 100 years to when they were building the first cars and first motorbikes, they probably seemed pretty impractical to some people, but we've seen where that's come," he said. For now, if nothing else, its something new to daydream about the next time youre stuck in a traffic jam.

and Europe. ANZ's net interest margin--the difference between what it earns from loans to what it pays out on deposits--contracted 2 basis points in the third quarter and it forecast a further decline of "several more" by the end the financial year. Margins in its Asian division are expected to fall by 20 basis points in the second half, it said, blaming lower interest rates in the region and intense competition from rivals, including from the U.S. and Europe, that flocked to Asia for its promise http://www.kiwibox.com/trevinocdcq/blog/entry/108575551/ask-the-diet-doctor-best-dinner-for-morning-workouts/?pPage=0 of strong growth. "We continue to view ANZ's medium term Asian strategy positively, however our chief near-term concern for the group remains the ongoing margin headwind from its Asian operations," Goldman Sachs analyst Andrew Lyons said.

New Zealanders were among 115 nationalities cruising on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ships around this country. Armstrong said the New Zealand cruise industry was well regarded. "It needs to keep doing what it's doing. What New Zealand has been good at is handling larger ships and that's what other ports elsewhere haven't been able to keep pace with, you're very fortunate to have deep-water ports for cargo that can be adapted for cruise ships." He said smaller ports such as Napier, Picton and Gisborne could attract more ships with alterations to dredging programmes and pier extensions. "But generally infrastructure is among the best in [the] countries we operate." Shore excursions were some of the best on offer around the world, he said.

The magnitude 6.8 quake struck just after 2:30 p.m. local time and was centered near the South Island town of Seddon. It sent office workers in the capital of Wellington scrambling for cover. The U.S. Geological Service said the epicenter was 94 kilometers (58 miles) west of the city at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles).
