Lanerie Rides And Wins At Ellis Park For First Time Since Wife’s Death

first_imgCorey Lanerie rode at Ellis Park Friday for the first time this summer as the four-time meet titlist resumed riding regularly following the June 22 death of his wife, Shantel.With his third mount of the day, Lanerie was back in the winner’s circle for the fourth race, with track announcer Jimmy McNerney saying, “Hide the Honey with Corey Lanerie on her back, and an angel on his.”“It feels great to be back riding, doing what I love,” Lanerie told the media before the first race. “Kind of get life moving forward again, because it’s hard. I think when I get back to riding, it will kind of get my mind freed and back to normal life. It’s going to be weird. I really don’t know what I’ll feel like out there. I actually rode last weekend, and it was pretty good. Once I get on the horse, I focus on the race and my job, whatever I have to do. I think I’ll go out there and do my job and just let it go as it is, and I think I’ll be fine.”Lanerie rode in four stakes July 7 at Arlington Park near Chicago, coming away with a pair of fourth-place finishes. Those were his first mounts since June 17.Shantel Lanerie was undergoing treatment for Stage 1 breast cancer when she underwent emergency surgery for an infected colon on June 21. She died the next day.Lanerie wears an undershirt with “Fight with Shantel” on the collar embroidered in pink, as well as a bracelet.“Before it happened, we’d ordered these shirts to ‘Fight with Shantel,’ so I’m going to just keep wearing them in honor of her,” he said. “The bracelet is the same thing. A bunch of us are wearing them, and we won’t forget her.”The Laneries have a 10-year-old daughter, Brittlyn. Shantel and Brittlyn were regular fixtures at the racetrack, known for their splendid attire when Lanerie received an award or reached a milestone victory.“There will be an empty spot for sure,” Lanerie said. “Because she supported me through thick and thin. She was there when I wasn’t doing any good and at my best moments.”The jockey said his daughter is doing well. He said Brittlyn is with family in Louisiana and would be doing some traveling with close friends. But he acknowledged that facing life as a single parent is daunting.“I think it’s sunken in,” he said. “Now I’m just scared of whatever the future has in store and whatever I’m going to have to do. I was lucky. She did everything, so it’s going to be a learning process for me. That’s kind of where I’m at, and I’m just going to take it day by day.“It will be hard. With my career, to be honest, I don’t think I can do it as a single parent. I’m going to have to get some help. Shantel’s parents are going to come for a couple of weeks, and after that, my parents are going to come, my mom for sure, for at least three weeks, maybe a month so we can get Brittlyn settled in. Then I’m probably going to have to end up hiring a nanny or somebody. Because she likes to dance and all that, and to get her to and from practice with the hours I work, it just wouldn’t be possible.”Lanerie said he greatly appreciates the outpouring from the racing community.“The support and the family love has been great. Everybody has reached out to me and offered their help, anything they can do. We’re a big family here, and it really showed. A lot of people have stepped up and just gone above and beyond, just with phone calls and stuff to do. It was amazing, so heart-warming.”Lanerie, a 43-year-old native of Lafayette, La., who has made Louisville home since moving to the Kentucky circuit in 2005, has won the last two Ellis Park training titles, as well as in 2013 (a tie with Roberto Morales) and 2010. The winner of more than 4,400 races, Lanerie is a 15-time meet leader at Churchill Downs.Lanerie and Brittlyn were part of the award presentation when the jockey’s good friend Brian Hernandez Jr. was honored as leading rider for Churchill Downs’ spring meet. Hernandez held a one-win margin over Lanerie when Shantel was hospitalized on June 21.“That was pretty special because Brian worked really hard and is a really good jockey,” Lanerie said. “He deserved to be leading rider. He came down (to Louisiana) for the wake. He was going to stay if I wanted him to, but I said, ‘If anybody is going to get it, Shantel would want you to have it. So go there and do what you do.’”Lanerie said he made the decision to return to riding because “It’s not going to get any better. Life has to go on, and I figure the sooner we go and start doing things and trying to get normalcy back in our life, things will be better.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

60-second sales pitch

first_img== So what’s new? ==A new generation of non-hydrogenated dairy cream alternatives. This includes new formulations of our brands Mactop, Mactop Extra, GlenDelight and Foodservice GlenDelight. Previously, all dairy cream alternatives in the market used hydrogenated fats.== What’s so special about it? ==The dairy cream alternatives are free from hydrogenated fats and artificial colours. They contain less than half the fat of dairy cream when whipped.== Why should bakers buy this? ==There has been a great deal of negative press surrounding hydrogenated fats. The UK’s multiple grocers have now banned their use in the majority of own-label products.== So explain the techie stuff. ==As air is beaten into a dairy cream alternative, fat particles begin to surround the air cells and ultimately lead to a stabilisation of the foam by locking together through a process of partial coalescence. That results in a creamy texture. The challenge was finding a non-hydrogenated alternative that would not compromise on the taste, quality or functionality.== Bottom line, what’s this product worth to the baker? ==Dairy cream alternatives offer the same versatility as dairy cream, but they out-perform it in many ways. They are suitable for whipping, fillings, piping and as an ingredient in cooking. They whip up to three times their volume and remain stable with the addition of colour, flavours and alcohol. And, unopened, they have an ambient shelf-life of six months.last_img read more

News story: Scientists move away from the keyboard to beat cyber attackers at their own game

first_img It is exciting to see the cyber card game being developed externally for the benefit of both security and commercial environments. Tomas Owen, founder of Coruscant Productions added: We are delighted to have the opportunity to license such unique intellectual property from Dstl. The cyber card game fundamentally alters the way cyber is thought about, taught and employed. We’re proud to be chosen as the first licensee, and look forward to working with cyber training providers across the world with the goal of ensuring all organisations are better able to understand and defend against cyber criminals and digital attacks. Scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) have developed a cyber card game which helps staff identify and learn about some of the key open source techniques a cyber aggressor might use to gain insight, access and control over industrial and commercial infrastructures.Extensive testing of the game and positive stakeholder feedback has shown a very rapid initial learning curve compared to conventional training alone and this contributed to the game winning the 2018 Dstl ‘Innovator of the Year’ award.The UK government and commercial sectors face a growing challenge in the form of cyber-attacks and information warfare from criminals and state actors. Such attacks take various forms and are often very sophisticated, meaning they may go unnoticed. Training staff to recognise and counter common information warfare attack strategies can be difficult, time-consuming and expensiveThe key benefits of Dstl’s cyber card game are that it: The cyber card game is available for license on a non-exclusive basis through Dstl’s Easy Access IP (EAIP) licencing framework. The EAIP framework allows companies to develop Dstl’s work at no cost, facilitating commercialisation of products that will benefit the economy and society.Dstl has signed their first cyber card game licencing agreement with Coruscant Productions LLC who plan to develop and market the cyber card game training approach further.The lead scientist who developed the game at Dstl said: Provides a rapid upskilling in understanding high level, open-source cyber-attack techniques and enhances learning on possible defensive strategies Offers a more enjoyable approach to cyber training – staff have the option to continue playing in their own time Is adaptable across a range of audiences and knowledge levels- the game can be tailored to various scenarios, ranging from a rapid two hour session for corporate management through to an extended campaign for cyber professionals Avoids using classified information, and therefore does not need security clearance to play For more information, visit Dstl’s Easy Access IP pagelast_img read more

According to the newspaper, Netto is now in the residence of the Brazilian ambassador in Tripoli, George Ney de Souza Fernandes, after eight days in prison in the city of Sabratha, 60 kilometers from the capital, Tripoli.

Netto is in good health and was scheduled to leave Libya on March 10th, according to the newspaper, which had lost all direct contact with Netto, sent to the country to cover the Libyan crisis. During the time he was being held, the journalist had no contact with the outside world, the newspaper added.

Netto urged Moammar Gadhafi’s government to release another journalist from British newspaper The Guardian who remains a prisoner in the country. By Dialogo March 15, 2011last_img read more

The kindergarten compliance rulebook for credit unions: Part 2

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr In the last post, I went over the impact state and federal regulations are having on credit union operations and how to identify potential violations. As promised at the conclusion of the post, today we’ll discuss how you can ensure your credit union meets the necessary compliance requirements by getting back to the basic skills you learned in kindergarten.When it comes to compliance exams, regulators want to see that:You have adequate staff in place who understand the rulesYou have made a good effort to follow the rules and do the right thingYou have put the systems in place, like FinTech, to track compliance and policies so issues are mitigated before they become problemsIn many cases, we see smaller lenders outsourcing the higher risk areas surrounding collections, skip tracing, and repossession management to large vendors who can leverage economies of scale to meet the stringent compliance requirements that are challenging for smaller institutions.Some lenders, including the largest SubPrime auto lender Santander, have embraced regulatory scrutiny as a competitive advantage, as stated in a recent article by their CEO Jason Kulas, who sees the strict requirements as a sort of “buffer” to keeping startup subprime shops out of the industry. continue reading »last_img read more

Prabowo to oversee development of food estate program, Jokowi says

first_imgDefense Minister Prabowo Subianto is set to oversee the development of the national food estate program, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has said.Addressing journalists at the State Palace in Jakarta on Monday, the President said he appointed the defense minister to lead the program was because food resilience fell under the domain of national defense.“What we call defense isn’t only about Alutsista [primary weaponry defense system] – it’s also about resilience in the food sector,” Jokowi said on Monday as quoted in a statement. Read also: Virus, climate change cause food shortages in parts of IndonesiaHe said that the development of the program was meant as an anticipatory measure amid concerns over a global food crisis due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as predicted by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).“We need to quickly anticipate [a possible food crisis] by establishing strategic food reserves,” Jokowi said, adding that Agriculture Minister Syahrul Yasin Limpo would also assist Prabowo in developing the program.Jokowi previously instructed the Public Works and Housing Ministry to expand the government’s food estate program by developing 165,000 hectares of land in Pulang Pisau regency, Central Kalimantan, into farmland.Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimulyono said last month that a total of 85,500 ha of land in the area already functioned as farmland, so the ministry only needed to clear 79,500 ha of scrubland for the development. The project aims to boost productivity by 2 tons of rice for each ha of land.Topics :last_img read more
