Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may face a touchline ban after he was charged by the Football Association for using abusive language during United’s Premier League win over Newcastle United this month, the English football governing body said on Tuesday.It had been reported that Mourinho directed an insult in his native language Portuguese towards a camera that was tracking him down the touchline after United came from behind to beat Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford.Newcastle, through Brazilian wing back Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto, had taken early control of the match but goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and then Alexis Sanchez in stoppage time got United the massive victory.United and Mourinho were under immense scrutiny followed a series of underwhelming performances.”It is alleged that his (Mourinho’s) language at the end of the fixture, as captured by the broadcast footage, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2018 to respond to the charge,” the FA said in a statement.Mourinho’s punishment, if found guilty, could include a touchline ban, which would mean him sitting in the stands for the game against his former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.Mourinho is under immense pressure to churn out results at Manchester United. Before the Newcastle game there were reports claiming that he will be sacked after the match irrespective of the result. However, that did not happen.Before the match against Newcastle, former United player Gary Neville had come down heavily on the Manchester United board for not standing by the values of the club.advertisementHe slammed the board for the way they have run the club in the past few years and defended Jose Mourinho.”This mess started when United sacked David Moyes after 8 months and we lost all sense of the values that the club had been built on for 100 years. It went into pinball, reactive mode and chasing it. No plan.””It’s not the manager it’s the lack of football leadership above him. They are bouncing all over the place with no plan,” Neville tweeted.However, the dressing room of Manchester United has been gloomy ever since the trouble between Mourinho and star player Paul Pogba began brewing.(With Reuters inputs) read more

OTTAWA — Vice-President Mike Pence has arrived in Canada as he looks to build momentum to get a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico passed.The visit comes after President Donald Trump removed steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico, clearing a key roadblock to a North American trade pact Trump’s team negotiated last year.The new trade deal, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement , was signed in November by Trump and the leaders of Canada and Mexico and is meant to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. It needs approval from legislatures in the three nations. Several key U.S. lawmakers and Canada were threatening to reject the pact unless the tariffs were removed. Democrats now want stronger enforcement of labour standards and oppose a provision that protects drugmakers from competition.Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said talks Thursday with Pence will focus on the ratification process.Trudeau said he also intends to raise women’s rights in the U.S., where anti-abortion measures have been passed in several states. Pence is a well-known opponent of abortion.“I’m very concerned with the situation around the backsliding of women’s rights that we’re seeing through conservative movements here in Canada, in the United States and around the world,” Trudeau said. “I will have a broad conversation with the vice-president. Of course, that will come up, but we’re going to mostly focus on the ratification process of NAFTA.”Trade lawyer Dan Ujczo, a Canada-U.S. specialist in Columbus, Ohio, said there is little doubt the new trade deal will be passed in Canada and Mexico but there is less than a 50 per cent chance it gets passed in the U.S. in the summer. Ujczo, however, said he believes there is a lane to get it done and Pence’s Ottawa visit could help.“The primary objective is to show back home in Washington that there is momentum for USMCA,” Ujczo said. “There is a stalemate between the two ends of Pennsylvania Avenue right now, and there is only about a couple of weeks or months in Washington to break this logjam.”Trudeau’s government introduced the trade deal bill in Parliament this week.Trudeau also is expected to bring up the plight of two detained Canadians in China. Beijing detained ex-diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor on Dec. 10 in an apparent attempt to pressure Canada to release Chinese Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou , who was arrested Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities.During recent U.S.-China trade talks the detained Canadians were raised by the Americans directly with the Chinese after Trudeau pressed Trump. Some analysts have said the U.S. response to China’s arrests of the two Canadians has been muted.Rob Gillies, The Associated Press read more
Among other meetings today, Mr. Brahimi held discussions with Sadoun al-Dulame, the head of the Iraqi Centre for Research and Strategic Studies, which does opinion polls in Iraq. They discussed public attitudes on a variety of subjects based on the Centre’s findings.In New York, the Secretary-General voiced hope that it would be possible to reach the target date of 31 May for making an announcement on plans for the transition.In comments to the press, he also said the draft resolution on Iraq under discussion in the Security Council would be subject to further amendments and clarifications, and voiced satisfaction that the text qualified that activities in Iraq should be carried out “circumstances permitting.”In another development, Carina Perelli, head of the UN electoral team in Iraq, has announced the international members of a panel vetting candidates for Iraq’s new independent electoral body.The four who were named Sunday are Judge Johann Kriegler, who was a chief electoral officer in the South African elections that finished apartheid; Madame Jaquine Techien, a former commissioner of the Federal Institute of Elections of Mexico; Dong N’Guyen, a former chief electoral officer for the UN in areas such as Paraguay and Eritrea; and Carlos Valenzuela, former chief electoral officer for UN operations such as in East Timor.”We came here in order to ensure that the Iraqi people, as far as this part of the process is concerned, get as fair and open and transparent a deal as possible,” Mr. Kriegler told a press briefing in Baghdad.He emphasized that panel members would have no formal authority or legal power, “but with the knowledge, the experience, and I think the integrity that we have, we can rank the people according to our opinion as openly and as fairly as possible so that they can do a credible, legitimate electoral exercise which will succeed, insha’Allah.” read more
OTTAWA – The federal government dropped a controversial campaign promise Tuesday to change the way stock options are taxed as they promised billions to help support innovation in the budget.During the election, the Liberals suggested they would look to put a cap of $100,000 a year on how much could be claimed through the deduction that reduces the tax charged on stock option gains.But Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Tuesday he has no plans to make any changes to the way stock options are taxed.“As I was out on pre-budget consultations I heard from many small firms and innovators that they use stock options as a legitimate form of compensation for their employees, so we decided not to put that in the budget,” Morneau said.Craig Alexander, vice-president of economic analysis at the C.D. Howe Institute, said the government initially was approaching stock options as a source of income for high-income Canadians, but that changed.“It became clear that stock options are actually an important part of compensation for particular sectors in the economy and often it isn’t the highest income individual that’s earning some money off of stock options,” he said.“It was somewhat inconsistent for the government to say on one hand that we want to invest in the innovation, high-tech economy, and simultaneously say, ‘Oh, but we’re going to tax stock options significantly more.’”The technology sector cheered the decision.“We are thrilled that the government will engage in further consultations with industry and we look forward to being a part of that conversation,” Shopify chief executive Tobi Lutke said.Before the budget, Lutke had suggested stock options, which can yield big windfalls, are a key incentive used by startup firms to entice staff to leave bigger companies and give up big salaries to join them.“We look forward to working in collaboration with the government to design policies that help promising Canadian entrepreneurs commercialize their ideas globally,” said Jim Balsillie, chairman of the Council of Canadian Innovators and co-founder of BlackBerry.Helping support innovation was a key theme in the budget as the federal government committed billions in spending for science and research.The budget included $2 billion over three years for a new Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund that aims to improve and modernize research facilities.The spending plan also included an additional $95 million per year to the research granting councils and an investment of $800 million over four years, starting in 2017-18, to help innovation networks and clusters designed to increase collaboration.“We believe that businesses, post-secondary institutions, governments and other stakeholders can work together to accelerate economic growth,” Morneau said.“We need to connect people and their ideas. These clusters are where innovation will happen — innovation that will ensure Canada is at the forefront of technological advancement in the 21st century.” Federal budget makes no change to stock options tax despite campaign promise by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 22, 2016 2:15 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 22, 2016 at 4:33 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Minister of Finance Bill Morneau is accompanied by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he makes his way to deliver the federal budget in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Tuesday, March 22, 2016.

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Philip Hammond has been warned against hiking levies on buy-to-let properties over fears the move would result in lower revenues for the Treasury.Two former Conservative cabinet ministers criticised reported plans for an increase in the government levy charged on buy-to-let purchases, which are said to be under consideration for the autumn Budget.John Redwood, the former trade secretary said: “There is no need to increase taxes and if you carry on increasing them you’ll collect less money from people, which is the opposite of what we want to achieve.”“The answer for the Treasury is cut stamp duty and you’ll raise more money.”–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Figures published this week show 11 per cent smaller stamp duty revenues in the second quarter of 2018, compared to this time last year. The Treasury plans will be billed as an attempt to ease Britain’s housing shortage, by targeting house prices driven up by second home buyers, according to a report in The Sun.But Lord Lilley, the former social security secretary, told The Telegraph: “The only two ways to get house prices down are to build more houses or to prevent people buying them, by putting taxes on them.”“They’ve opted for the second one. But we just need to build more houses. We’ve let 4 million extra people into the country and we haven’t built enough houses for the people who are already here,” he said. The surcharge, which is currently three per cent of the property’s value, was introduced in April 2016 under George Osborne. John Redwood yesterday called it a “tax attack” on second home owners, and warned that fewer transactions would take place after an increase, slowing down the property market.The Treasury said that it does not comment on Budget speculation.In a report, the Centre for Policy Studies think tank revealed today that two fifths of renters would support the abolition of mandatory rental deposits, which it warns make it more difficult for tenants to move between properties.Replacing deposits with rental insurance schemes would protect landlords from property damage or missed payments without initial outlays from tenants, the CPS said. read more
Fukushima : un drone photographie les dégâts à la centraleLa société Air photo service a dévoilé il y a quelques jours des photos aériennes prises à l’aide d’un drone. L’aéronef a survolé la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima au Japon pour réaliser des clichés témoignant de l’ampleur des dégâts.Bien que tous les regards soient portés depuis le vendredi 11 mars sur la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima au Japon, rares sont les images qui montrent avec autant de précision l’état des réacteurs au cœur des préoccupations. Le drone envoyé par l’agence Air photo service a réalisé une série de clichés faisant état des dommages de la centrale. Murs écroulés, toits soufflés par les explosions, la situation semble réellement critique. À lire aussiSaurez-vous reconnaitre à quel objet du quotidien appartiennent ces gros plans ?Suite au violent séisme de magnitude 9 et au tsunami qui a suivi, trois des réacteurs de la centrale de Fukushima alors en opération avaient été immédiatement mis à l’arrêt et toute l’alimentation électrique de la centrale avait été coupée. Depuis, l’arrêt total des systèmes de refroidissement oblige les techniciens présents sur le site à bombarder d’eau les réacteurs afin d’éviter la fusion des combustibles.L’eau de refroidissement répandue en masse sur les réacteurs ruisselle jusqu’à l’océan Pacifique provoquant une hausse de la radioactivité dans les milieux marins proches de la centrale. Les efforts se déploient pour tenter d’empêcher la catastrophe nucléaire alors que de toutes parts s’échappent des rejets radioactifs. Goshi Hosono, conseiller spécial du Premier ministre japonais, a précisé hier qu’il faudrait “probablement plusieurs mois avant de stopper les fuites radioactives”.Visualisez les clichés pris par Air photo service sur Maxisciences en cliquant ci-dessous : https://www.maxisciences.com/catastrophe-nucl%e9aire-au-japon/la-centrale-accidentee-de-fukushima-vue-du-ciel_art13663.html Le 4 avril 2011 à 12:20 • Emmanuel Perrin read more
After Amazon’s announcement last week that it would open a second headquarters, cities across the United States seemed to start plucking their résumés.Clark County and the Vancouver-Portland metropolitan area will be no different, throwing its collective hat in the ring, according to the Columbia River Economic Development Council.The organization, paid by local governments to recruit and retain businesses, doesn’t normally disclose active projects. Amazon’s announcement, which has already stirred national interest, is an exception.“A project of this scale is certainly an incredible opportunity that will require strong collaboration among regional partners in order to be competitive against other communities,” President Mike Bomar said in a statement.At stake, according to Amazon, is a $5 billion investment. Amazon will build its new headquarters and hire 50,000 people, it said, creating a multibillion-dollar windfall for whichever community lands it. read more

How exactly are sled dogs different from typical house dogs? Dr. Stuart Nelson, the Iditarod’s chief veterinarian, compares dogs to NFL players. On a pro team, the sled dogs would be the wide receivers.“They’re fast, they’re light on their feet. A lab would be more like a defensive tackle,” said Nelson.Mushers maintain sophisticated breeding programs to achieve a specific profile for their kennel.Alaskan huskies who dominate the top echelon of the sport are bred for performance and have what Nelson calls “hybrid vigor.““They’ve been crossed with various other breeds to get more endurance and speed. A lot of hound crosses, setter types to get more speed and stamina,” said Nelson.Iditarod musher Aaron Burmeister maintains a tightly controlled breeding program.“They’ve got a lot of drive, they’re mentally strong, have a good appetite and digestion, and they have a quick recovery time, plus solid feet and good coats” said Burmeister.And then there are purebreds. Lisbet Norris and her family have been breeding a specific kind of Siberian Husky from the Russian Far East for decades and racing in the Iditarod.Alaska Public’s Mushing Explained video series will have new episodes throughout the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. read more
Members of Friends of Mary Siah and others gather at the intersection of Illinois and Terminal streets near the borough administration building to protest Mayor Karl Kassel’s proposal to demolish the recreation center. (Photo by Tim Ellis/ KUAC)The Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly decided Monday to delay a plan to demolish the Mary Siah Recreation Center, proposed by Mayor Karl Kassel. Assembly members instead approved a measure that keeps the popular but aging rec center operating – if it passes engineering tests to be conducted over the next month.Listen nowThe Assembly picked up Monday where it left off Thursday, after a marathon public hearing on Kassel’s proposed ordinance to demolish the Mary Siah Rec Center as part of a package of projects intended to help the borough begin to catch up on long-deferred facilities maintenance.Lance Roberts offered an amended version of the mayor’s ordinance that would keep the rec center open and appropriate more than $682,000 to repair it.“I don’t think taking down buildings that really don’t have that long a lifespan in the overall scheme of the things is the right way to go about it,” Roberts said.Roberts said his ordinance would keep Mary Siah open for a few years, unless problems arose due to the serious structural issues that borough staff and consultants have pointed out.“The Assembly should definitely say at this point that we want to keep the Mary Siah open,” Roberts said.Roberts said he doesn’t believe the borough should knock down the rec center until it has another facility to replace it. Kassel has proposed a $35 million aquatics center that would be paid for with bonds. But Roberts says he’s reluctant to go along with that, because it would add to property taxes. He adds that borough voters may not approve the bond issue, given the state’s fiscal woes. He says the solution is to cut services and keep the borough’s budget lean.“We are going to need to dig deeper and do some more budget-cutting,” Roberts said, “but everyone on this Assembly knows I’m willing to help with that.”The Assembly defeated Roberts’ ordinance, 7-to-1, with only him voting to support. Christopher Quist was absent.The Assembly then took up Kassel’s ordinance. The mayor told Assembly members he hopes they’ll place a bond measure on the fall local-election ballot and that voters approve them. But he says he’s not counting on that; he says he’s proposed to close Mary Siah because the borough doesn’t have the money to repair, maintain and operate it.“My point is, regardless of the vote up or down on the bond, the building still needs to come down ASAP,” Kassel said. “Or, get multi millions of dollars of repair work into it for the next several years.”The mayor emphasized several times that his proposals are part of a carefully crafted 10-year plan to catch up on the borough’s maintenance backlog. He said proposed amendments to his ordinance could disrupt that plan, and he says he’d welcome suggestions on which other facilities the borough should close or demolish, and how it can pay for that. After more back-and-forth, Aaron Lojewski suggested Kassel was trying to stifle dissent to his plan.“It sounds like you’re trying to find another way to close the Mary Siah if you don’t get your way tonight,” Lojewski said.Many of the 30 or so people who turned out for the meeting murmured their agreement with Lojewski’s charge. But Kassel, a former borough parks and rec director, was clearly irritated.“It’s ridiculous to say that I am trying to target this facility because I don’t like it for some reason,” Kassel said. “That’s insanity! This pains me. I’m very emotional about this. I love our parks and rec facilities.”Other Assembly members, like Angela Major, also said they felt pressured by the mayor’s pitch.“It just kind of seems like well, we’ve already taken money out of the operating budget for next year,” Major said. “And the more we talk about this the more it just kind of seems like you guys don’t have any options than this one.”The Assembly finally approved an amendment proposed by Matt Cooper that would allow the $682,000 Kassel proposed to use to demolish the rec center to instead be available for repair or maintenance. Cooper urged Kassel to complete engineering tests on the structure as quickly as possible and send results to the Assembly. Kassel said he expects that could be done in four to five weeks.The Assembly then approved a resolution supporting Kassel’s maintenance plan and his proposal to ask voters to approve selling bonds to raise $77 million to pay for it, including the aquatics center to replace Mary Siah and the Hamme Pool. Lojewski and Roberts voted no on the measure. read more
Hannah Hendrickson (left) and Deven Lisac are the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s catch samplers this summer for the Nushagak district. They alternate sampling fish scales and fins between the Peter Pan and Icicle salmon processing plants in Dillingham. (Photo by Austin Fast / KDLG)Preschool teacher Hannah Hendrickson said there are two distinct duties for catch samplers working at salmon processing plants around Bristol Bay.Listen now“People oftentimes nickname this job as the pickers and the lickers, so I said, ‘I’m not a licker. I’m only a picker!’ ” Hendrickson said.Hendrickson is talking about picking freshly caught sockeye out of huge, ice-filled crates so she can mark down their length and gender and weigh every eighth fish.The licker is her colleague Deven Lisac. Across the table at Peter Pan Seafoods in Dillingham, Lisac was snipping off bits of fins and plucking out fish scales. Saliva is a good enough adhesive to stick fish scales on the thick cards for their journey to the Department of Fish and Game laboratory in King Salmon.“Grab the tweezers, and then you just give it a lick,” Lisac advised. “And that was fish No. 4, so it goes on slot four.”The pair are part of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s seasonal crew tasked with sampling 240 sockeye a day from each district in the bay. They also sample 200 chums and 200 kings a week.Biologists can analyze fish scales like tree rings to determine age, as wider sections indicate nutrient-rich summers and narrower ones are scarce winters. Scale-agers in King Salmon have a busy month from mid-June to late July, counting the rings on approximately 46,000 scale samples from all five commercial districts, the Port Moller Test Fishery and the escapement counting towers.Catch samplers in Bristol Bay’s five commercial districts affix sockeye scales to cards to have their age analyzed at the ADFG lab in King Salmon. (Katie Sechrist / Alaska Department of Fish and Game)Jack Erickson, a research coordinator with ADF&G in King Salmon, explained that the salmon age classifications of 1.2, 2.2, 1.3, 2.3 and so on represent how many years the fish spent in fresh water before migrating out to sea. A 1.2, for example, means one season in fresh water and two in salt water.With a giant sockeye run of 51.3 million forecast for this year, Erickson said Bristol Bay fishermen should absolutely take notice of the age of the fish they’re catching.“1.2s are smaller typically than 1.3s. They’re a year longer in the salt water for growth. (Fishermen) are concerned about their markets as well,” Erickson said. “I think there’s a lot of fisherman, very savvy, that are looking at the same information the biologists are. When they look at the Port Moller Test Fishery, when they look at our age comp(osition)s, when they look at our escapements, they’re wondering the same thing and wanting to have instant access just like the biologists sitting here in King Salmon and in Dillingham.Providing all that fish data is messy work with hours just as dependent on the tides as fishermen. During the school year, Hendrickson wrangles squirming four-year-olds at the Bristol Bay Native Association’s Head Start program. She’s now doing the same with fish that are just as slippery.“Sometimes we’re doing an overnight sample that starts at 10 in the evening and goes until 3 in the morning. There’s one time that we got everything cleaned up and a tender from Igushik comes in and we’re like, ‘We’ll take them!’ so we were here doing that stuff again,” Hendrickson said.Lisac staples 240 Nushagak sockeye fin clippings to these cards every day for genetic analysis at the ADFG lab in King Salmon. (Katie Sechrist / Alaska Department of Fish and Game)Hendrickson is just two weeks into her first season sampling the Nushagak harvest. On the other hand, Lisac is an old pro in her fourth summer with ADF&G.“Every day, it’s a struggle fighting with dead fish,” Lisac said. “Then when I get home, they’re processing fish at the house, so it never ends. This time of year is fish. I do get tired of eating fish and fish and fish.”ADF&G has one catch sampler in Togiak and four in King Salmon all sending data to the lab like Hendrickson and Lisac. They’ll be meeting tenders at the dock every day across Bristol Bay until July 19. Erickson said analyzing salmon genetics is just one tool in managing fisheries.“It’s a predictor. It doesn’t always come in exactly as predicted — matter of fact, they rarely do. Some come in large, and some come in small,” Erickson said. “We don’t take any specific one as a sign that something’s bad or good. It just helps us lead the direction of how we’re going to manage.” read more

By REBECCA SANTANA Associated PressNEW ORLEANS (AP) — Legendary New Orleans chef Leah Chase always had problems when customers asked if she served “soul food.” Well, that would depend on where your soul was, she’d say. If it was in China, she couldn’t really help you.But if your soul was in New Orleans, well that was different.“If your soul is in New Orleans, I know what to give you,” Chase said during an interview. “I’m going to give you some jambalaya. I can give you some stewed chicken. I can give you some shrimp Creole.”In this Jan. 20, 2009, file photo, Chef Leah Chase, owner of Dooky Chase’ prepares for lunch at her restaurant in New Orleans. The legendary New Orleans chef and civil rights icon Leah Chase has died at 96, according to a statement her family released to news outlets. (AP Photo/Bill Haber, File)Chase, who fed generations of New Orleanians and tourists alike at Dooky Chase’s restaurant, died Saturday. She was 96.Chase’s family released a statement to news outlets Saturday night, sharing that the woman they called a “believer in the Spirit of New Orleans” died surrounded by family.“Her daily joy was not simply cooking, but preparing meals to bring people together,” the family’s statement read. “One of her most prized contributions was advocating for the Civil Rights Movement through feeding those on the front lines of the struggle for human dignity.”Leah Chase transformed the restaurant bearing — like her husband — her father-in-law’s name from a sandwich shop where black patrons could buy lottery tickets to a refined restaurant where tourists, athletes, musicians — and even presidents — of all races dined.Chase’s determination propelled her from a girl with a small-town Louisiana upbringing to a celebrated chef who authored cookbooks, appeared on cooking shows and fed civil rights greats such as Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King Jr. Well into her 90s, Chase could be found every day at the restaurant, using a walker while greeting customers and supervising the kitchen.“I love people and I love serving people. It’s fun for me to serve people. Because sometimes people will come in and they’re tired. And just a little plate of food will make people happy,” she said during a 2015 interview with The Associated Press .At a time when other black Creole women were working in the city’s garment industry, Chase worked as a waitress in the French Quarter, which exposed her to the segregated city’s pricey restaurants frequented by white people.When she married Dooky Chase in 1946, his family restaurant had been open for five years — largely under the guidance of his mother. But Leah Chase wanted to make it a fine dining experience for black patrons, along the lines of what she had seen in the Quarter. Gradually, she introduced silverware on the table, tablecloths and Creole dishes.“I said well why we can’t have that for our people? Why we can’t have a nice space? So I started trying to do different things,” she said.Dooky Chase’s became known as a place where white and black civil rights activists could meet and strategize about voter registration drives or legal cases. Although Chase and her husband were breaking the law by allowing whites and blacks to eat together, police never raided the restaurant.She would also send food to jailed civil rights leaders, sniffing her nose at the notion of them eating prison food.Sybil Morial, a longtime friend of Chase’s, said she’s eaten hundreds of meals at Dooky Chase’s where she was courted by her late husband and the city’s first black mayor, Ernest “Dutch” Morial. On visits to New Orleans, Thurgood Marshall and other lawyers would work with Morial’s husband and NAACP lawyer, A.P. Tureaud, and then head to Dooky’s for lunch or dinner.“It was a haven for them to refresh themselves with wonderful gumbo and it was a place where they could strategize after a hard day’s work,” Morial said.Chase never boasted about her works, saying simply that she did what she thought she had to do.Hurricane Katrina in 2005 devastated her restaurant, where 5 feet (1.5 meters) of water lingered in the dining room for weeks. When the waters eventually receded, mold was everywhere.Chase was already into her 80s, but there was little question regarding the restaurant’s fate. Having evacuated to Birmingham, she and her husband returned to live in a FEMA trailer next to the restaurant for months, while they rebuilt Dooky Chase’s.She and her husband had been married for seven decades when he died in 2016 .Her food always reflected her city, a Creole mixture of Spanish, French, African and other cultures that have influenced New Orleans. She also enjoyed new culinary influences in the city, like the growing number of Vietnamese and Jamaican restaurants.With the exception of two photographs of former President Barack Obama, the restaurant has little evidence of the celebrities and dignitaries who came to eat. Instead of surrounding herself with the past, Chase tended to look forward.“I want to do better,” she said. “I want to have the finest restaurant with the finest food. That’s all I want.” read more
