Treadmill Britain needs to lighten up

first_imgIs work dominating your life, controlling everything and creating moredisappointments than delights? Our brilliant ‘Off Message’ columnist Stephen Overell, this week challengesus with the notion that there should be a campaign for less work and more leisure.It might sound like a light-hearted and trifling proposition but he’s raised aserious point. Overell is not calling for increased idleness, just the freedom to havespare time, to relax and not to feel guilty about not being useful. He argues that we’re obsessed with employment as our only meaningfulactivity when leisure is equally worthwhile, allows us to express our talentand personality and makes us feel so much better. Only a mad person would disagree with him. But it’s important not todemonise the workplace and deny how significant work is in many people’s lives.Call them sad, but for some people the job really is the foundation of theirwell-being and identity. It’s the satisfying and rewarding part of their life,they are passionate about it and don’t feel anywhere near as positive abouttheir leisure time, which deliberately plays second fiddle. For many, happiness at work correlates with happiness in life. It’s acomplex issue, but few can deny that employed people tend to be happier andhealthier than the unemployed. Overell paints a picture of treadmill Britain, but his ‘total work culture’belies the fact that attitudes are shifting away from long hours towards moreflexibility between home and job. Workers and employers recognise that wellbeing is dependent on balance and that no longer means working nine to five.The next generation will undoubtedly be much more protective of their leisuretime and demand it from prospective employers. Reference to analysis Industry leaders and employees in this country have a long way to go beforethey reach agreement and are comfortable with levels of work versus play. Butif you are in the Overell camp and value your leisure time more than work, thenavoid jobs in Hong Kong and aim for Berlin, Copenhagen or Paris where theaverage number of annual working hours are lowest. These are not lazy cities ofcourse, just vibrant business centres, chilled out about rest, work and play. By Jane King, editor Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

Italy: Leon E. Panetta Visits NAS Sigonella

Panetta visited U.S. and Coalition service members on board Naval Air Station (NAS) Sigonella Oct. 7 during a overseas tour that consisted of stops in Israel, Egypt, Belgium and Italy.The purpose of the stop was to thank not only the U.S. service members, but also Italian and Coalition forces for their support during operations in Libya.Operation Unified Protector is the NATO-led mission that succeeded Operation Odyssey Dawn, established to enforce United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.U.S. and Coalition service members gathered on the flight line as Panetta described the operations as a true Coalition effort.“I have to tell you that at the time that this mission was embarked on, there were a lot of critics about whether it was the right mission at the right time with the right force; whether NATO could do the job. There were a lot of questions about the mission overall, and I think the critics have been proven wrong. NATO came together effectively, came together quickly, operations were put together effectively – and this was a complicated mission. There’s no questions about it,” said Panetta.“In Sigonella, nations came together to conduct complex operations that have not only protected the lives of innocent civilians, but have served to demonstrate the remarkable capacities resident in each nation’s forces,” said Capt. Scott Butler, NAS Sigonella commanding officer. “The historic deployments by Sweden and UAE, along with the efforts of our traditional NATO partners, are game-changers. From this base, a military force whose composition is unique in the modern age, prosecuted enemy targets with great precision and, as the Secretary said, made the world a safer place for our children. There can be no higher calling.”“Sigonella was extremely important to the mission that was conducted in Libya, and all of you know the tremendous role that was played by each of you in that mission,” said Panetta.[mappress]Source: navy, October 09, 2011 Authorities View post tag: usa View post tag: Leon View post tag: NAS View post tag: Sigonella Back to overview,Home naval-today Italy: Leon E.

Baby cakes

first_imgCupcakes are making a bit of resurgence as a fashionable bakery treat, which is great news for cake-maker Fiona Cairns. Or at least it should be. “They’re not cupcakes, they’re fairy cakes!” huffs Cairns, only half-jokingly of her products. I stand corrected.So is there any real difference between fairy cakes and cupcakes? The answer lies across one large continent-splitting pond. “I just think that what we make is a very English product. To me, a ’cupcake’ is an American term for a larger, more muffin-like cake. Ours are much more delicate and I prefer the name ’fairy cakes’. I think we’re unique in calling them fairy cakes, not cupcakes.”The cupcakes vs fairy cake debate is one that has raged – and blood was spilt over the matter – within the pages of Waitrose magazine. “In America, a cupcake is a bit like a cookie, something you might pick up on your way to work. It’s a more casual thing, whereas what we do is more precious, more gifty – it’s an alternative to giving a chocolate box,” explains MD Kishore Patel. Cairns then unexpectedly adds: “But next week we’ll start to make American-style cupcakes, with buttercream on top!”The firm’s first foray into cupcakes will initially be for Waitrose own-label. Whether fairy or cupcakes, the fashionable revival of traditional topped box cakes is commonly cited as having been kick-started in New York in the mid-’90s with the likes of the famed Magnolia Bakery (see pg 19). This traditional-style bakery, popped up in films and TV series, including Sex & the City, with queues stretching around the block. But Fiona Cairns was on the scene a whole decade earlier, having begun selling fairy cakes and fruit cakes to Harrods and The Conran Shop some 20 years ago.traditional goes mainstreamThe firm now specialises in manufacturing premium branded and own-label celebration cakes, fairy cakes and biscuits for the likes of Waitrose, which has stocked Fiona Cairns for 14 years, and Sainsbury’s, which came on board a year ago. Cupcakes are just another example of a traditional product returning to the mainstream, says Patel. “We like to take an old product and breathe life into it,” he says. “A cupcake is as old as the hills. We think there are some great old ideas that you can interpret crisply in a modern way, and people love it.”The spritely pace of innovation – the firm gets through around 50-60 fairy cake designs in a year – means new product categories such as cupcakes can take on a momentum of their own. “Like everything we do, we make brother and sister products. Cupcakes are likely to be one of those products where we will do a Fiona Cairns label and an own-label,” says Patel.Waitrose will have a different design from John Lewis, Sainsbury’s or Harrods. Even seasonal variations are unique to each retailer. “We’ve almost got too many ideas, if that’s possible!” says Cairns.Over the last 20 years, the products have refined and the level of detail improved, while the stable of designs is ever-changing. All decorations are handmade. “In the early days, I trained everybody. Now there’s an ethos within the business of paying attention to detail – because that’s the way I am, I’m very fussy.”Our cakes are very highly finished; everybody understands that. With the clear way it’s packaged [in a simple transparent box], there’s nothing between the consumer’s eye and the product. If there’s a thumb-mark on there it’s obvious.”Cairns has clearly been flexing her PR muscle over the years, achieving a steady drip-feed of coverage for her products in magazines and national newspapers. Patel says: “Keeping the brand in the consumers’ attention through the press is quite an important part of our whole approach. It’s not just about getting the product right and making it taste good and look good, it’s also about getting the customer to pick it up and buy it.”boosting the brandSo does the business have a marketing budget? “Yes – it’s zero! That’s very much Fiona’s role. We have established our brand and we want to work on growing the business,” he adds.This means building on the good start the firm has made in Europe, as well developing new product lines. The brand was successfully introduced into French department store Le Bon Marché – said to be “the Selfridges of Paris” – in January this year. “Nobody knew quite how the fruit cake would go down, but they’re selling really well,” says Cairns. They have already pricked the attention of six French publications, including Figaro and Elle magazines.Elsewhere, the firm is looking to develop shortbread biscuits, to take on the likes of Duchy Originals in the medium term. However, the organics route is not something that is high on the agenda.But cakes are the mainstay and about 600,000 fairy cakes are made every year, plus around 16-20,000 little fruit cakes, which come in five sizes. The smallest cake costs £8, while a 9kg fruit cake wedding cake retails for around £250. “We built the company up on the reputation of our fruit cake,” says Cairns.So what are the technical issues that a business like Fiona Cairns faces? “As a point of difference we generally develop a product and then cost it – sometimes products fall by the wayside, because they’re too expensive to make,” says Patel. “When I started, there wasn’t much competition, but there is now,” continues Cairns. “But there are technical barriers to entering into the market, and that puts some people off. I used to design whatever I wanted, with no limitations – all you needed was an oven. That’s completely changed over the last five years. I go to our technologist before I design anything, and not afterwards, as I used to do,” she says.One abandoned product – sugar mice with a string tail – was pulled at the 11th hour due to restrictions on using string coming to light. Thankfully, technical manager Anthony Green is now on hand to ensure the smooth planning of product development. “If everything is right at the NPD stage then the product will be fine when you scale up,” he says.going naturalOne technical development is a move away from synthetic colours to natural, wherever possible. “There is a new colour on the market from GMT that’s completely natural. So we’re striving to improve every detail,” says Green.Plans are afoot to double the building space by August this year, having outgrown the factory in Fleckney, Leicestershire. By acquiring a neighbouring unit, the company is set to increase production, warehousing and office space to 11,000sq ft. Costing an estimated £250,000, the plan is to have the new building ready in time for the Christmas rush.So where would the business like to be in five years’ time – a listing in every major supermarket, perhaps? Patel thinks not; the key, he says, is not to overstretch oneself. “With food manufacturing, managing growth is quite tricky,” he explains. “Suddenly, you can go from being a niche provider to a very vulnerable supplier. That’s the process we’ve got to watch. If we sell a little to five supermarkets, the margins are not as good as if we sell in depth to one, because the cost of running that account is fixed. But we’re ready to grow.” n—-=== Fiona Cairns – the business ===Location: Fleckney, LeicestershireCustomers: The Conran Shop; Waitrose; John Lewis; Sainsbury’s; Harrods; Fortnum & Mason; Le Bon MarchéMajor ingredients supplier: BakoTurnover: £1.5m with £2m projected by next yearProducts: Celebration cakes make up 65%, with fairy cakes and biscuits accounting for the remainderKey personnel: The company is run by the husband and wife team of Fiona Cairns, who heads up product development and marketing, and MD Kishore PatelStaff: 35 (permanent)Distribution: directInteresting fact: Fiona Cairns makes Christmas cakes every year for Paul McCartney—-=== Fiona Cairns – the CV ===First trained in graphic design and then worked as an illustrator; undertook cookery training and became a pastry chef at Hambleton Hall, Rutland; began her own business, baking from homeHistory: “In 1986, I was baking from my kitchen table,” says Cairns. “We went on a skiing holiday with friends and decided to take each other a present that cost under £1 – not very easy.

News story: Flights protected in no deal Brexit scenario

first_img Measures put forward by the UK and the EU will ensure that flights can continue in any scenario; deal or no deal. This is good news, not only for the industry but most importantly it reaffirms the fact that passengers can book flights with confidence, as normal. We expect these contingency measures will never be needed and our efforts remain focused on securing a deal from the EU. The government has set out how it will reciprocate to EU airlines the rights granted to UK airlines by the regulation.Around 164 million passengers travel between the UK and the EU each year so these measures will ensure that passengers can continue to take business and leisure flights in a no deal scenario.This announcement gives industry certainty and the public the assurance needed to book and fly with absolute confidence.These proposals are a no deal contingency measure and will only come into force if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. The UK remains committed to securing a deal but continues to prepare for all scenarios. Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Today (7 March 2019) the UK government confirmed details of measures that will ensure flights will continue if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.This follows the publication of technical notices in October 2018 which clearly stated that the UK would adopt a pragmatic approach to securing flights.This announcement comes as the EU is also about to finalise its no deal aviation regulation that will protect UK airlines flying into Europe. Both these proposals will ensure continued aviation connectivity in any scenario.Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg said: UK government sets out detailed plans confirming protection for flights in a no deal scenario EU no deal aviation regulation also about to be finalised to ensure UK airlines can continue to operate to Europe contingency measures provide industry and holidaymakers with the certainty they need and ensure flights will continue after 29 March 2019center_img Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Aviation, Europe and technology media enquiries Switchboard 0300 330 3000last_img read more

An ancient tribe, and change

first_img A battle scene from Robert Gardner’s “Dead Birds” (1963), a cinematic study of ritual warfare among the world’s last Stone Age tribes. Images courtesy of Robert Gardner ‘Dead Birds’ revisited In a still from “Dead Birds Re-encountered” (2013), Weyak (far left), the Dani warrior profiled in “Dead Birds,” watched the film 28 years later with Gardner (far right). It is organized in a classic dramatic story arc. The protagonists are two Dani tribesmen: Weyak, a farmer and warrior who guarded one fringe of his village’s frontier, and Pua, a dreamy and hapless boy of 8 who herded swine for his grandfather. Man and boy illustrated both the arrival at manhood and the aspiration to reach it.Bodies star in “Dead Birds” too, and offer a look at how humanity once was: splayfooted, naked, and with powerful and utilitarian adult bodies. The children are spare and naked. Young adult men have the hard muscles and fluid gait of middle-distance runners. Women and girls wear short woven skirts. Men and boys wear phallocrypts, upright slender gourds that are tied around the torso and conceal the penis.“Dead Birds” was regarded as revolutionary in part because of Gardner’s cinematic eye. A bird of prey glides over a green valley where stick-and-daub villages interlock with ancient paths. In the pitch darkness, Pua lights a fire and roasts a small bird, then keeps a feather for his hair. Weyak hoes a garden plot with a blunt stick. On a grassy hillside, men with spears swarm at each other, feinting and shooting arrows. They break from war when it rains, for fear that their feathered headdresses will get wet. Now and then, someone gets hurt. Rarely, someone dies.In sum, Gardner in 1961 was filming long-ago humanity, when people generally were bound to each other by magic and ancient paths, and to an ideal of war whose object was not annihilation but tribal honor. (Each tribal death required revenge for another, an accountancy that kept a cycle of war slowly turning.)Shooting close and longAt work too in “Dead Birds” were Gardner’s allegorical voice-over; his unflinching close-ups and dramatic long shots; his you-are-there battle scenes; and his captivating soundtrack, which later engendered some controversy because it was layered over the film track during editing. In those days, syncing sound to film amid field conditions was impossible.Gardner’s sound recordist during the 1961 film trip was Michael Rockefeller ’60, son of then-New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller. Michael disappeared later that year during another expedition in Dutch New Guinea, and was declared dead in 1964.The battle scenes in “Dead Birds” were controversial too, since what seemed like one battle was a composite of several. For the visiting Westerners, there were hazards even at the periphery of the action. Dani arrows, long and reedlike, were barbed but featherless. Trajectories could be looping and erratic. “Michael Rockefeller got one in his leg,” said Gardner of an errant arrow. “I never told his father. All hell would have broken loose.”Adding to the power of the film were its intimate portraits of daily life as it likely was in the Stone Age, with feasts, funerals, farming, pig herding, raids, gestures of magic, and in this case long treks to the tribe’s one source of salt. (Women soaked banana leaves in briny water, and then bore them home in heavy bundles.)For ethnographic filmmakers, it was a unique moment. The Dani were completely unaware of what the whirring film cameras did. “My camera,” Gardner wrote later, “was no more or less interesting than my belt buckle.” (He had a rule back then too, to preserve the secret of film’s magic: No photographs were to be shown to any of the Dani.)At the retrospective screening of “Dead Birds” on Oct. 10, Film Archive programmer David Pendleton said the movie had “touched off a revolution” in documentary cinema, praise that Ilisa Barbash repeated in a formal introduction. She is the Peabody’s curator of visual anthropology and co-author of “The Cinema of Robert Gardner” (2008). “You don’t have boring middle shots,” said Barbash. “He keeps you visually engaged.”“Dead Birds” premiered at Harvard’s Loeb Drama Center in a ticketed event open mainly to faculty, administrators, and a smattering of Harvard undergraduates.“The person who understood it best was the president of the University, Nathan Pusey,” said Gardner. “He came back again” for the second screening that night.The filmmaker, still strikingly handsome with a shock of white hair, said “Dead Birds” was a “different film” at its first screening: 110 minutes long instead of the 85-minute duration of its official release in 1964.A coterie of his friends had “urged me to make it shorter,” said Gardner, which he regrets now. Among them was author Lillian Hellman and novelist Peter Matthiessen, a naturalist who had been on the film team in Dutch New Guinea. (Along too was visual anthropologist Karl G. Heider ’56, Ph.D. ’66, who co-wrote with Gardner 1969’s “Gardens of War: Life and Death in the New Guinea Stone Age.”)The longer film? “I have it around somewhere,” said Gardner.Re-encounters and changesGardner, who will be 88 on Nov. 5, skipped the screening of “Dead Birds,” but was on hand for the premiere of “Dead Birds Re-encountered” the next night. He first thought of calling it “The Road,” but during editing decided to focus on the people who in 1963 elected to embrace Gardner and his crew instead of killing them.With him on the 1989 film trip were his wife, two sons, photographer Susan Meiselas, and two friends — both dead now — whom Gardner credits with most of the work: documentary filmmaker and Harvard Professor Richard P. Rogers and pioneer aerial photographer Robert E. Fulton III ’61.“Re-encountered” is only 46 minutes long. “I wondered at the end of editing it why it was so short,” said Gardner. “I usually drag things out.”It is a film of reunion. The most affecting scene comes first, when Weyak, now a slender old man in a Western shirt and shorts, meets Gardner again. Nearly three decades after being filmed guarding, farming, weaving, and making war, he weeps against the bigger man’s shoulder, shouts, hums, and bares his teeth in a wide smile. “You have come from your home to see us here,” said Weyak. He added, with a shade of the disbelief he felt in 1961, “These are real people.”The nearly naked Pua takes equal pleasure in meeting Pom, the name the villagers gave Gardner. Pua hugs the silver-haired visitor, grins, and taps his phallocrypt for emphasis.“Re-encountered” is also a film of remembering. The longest scene, and the most dramatic, is a monologue by Weyak as he sits cross-legged in his hut. He recounts the film team arriving, and their welcome once it is determined that they are human. Weyak tells how his desires have changed in the intervening years, and those of the whole village. ????Just clothes or money,” he said through subtitles. “No more fighting. No.”The road is not the only change, or Weyak’s Western shorts. Pua, wearing just a headdress, gets a helicopter ride, then climbs into a car to visit a nearby town. Surrounded by curious Indonesians, he scans the wares in a souvenir shop, including a shelf of stone axes. Pua also pages through a book.“This is how I used to be,” he said, pointing to one old picture of the way things were. There was another of Michael Rockefeller. “Mike as a boy,” said Pua. “He died. He went into the ocean.”“Re-encountered” is a film about aging too. Weyak looks shrunken in a jacket and military cap. But he is animated during another one of the film’s signature scenes. The old men watch themselves young in “Dead Birds,” screening it on a tiny monitor.The new film is about a kind of fame, too. Pua recounted how tourists sought him out, and said he had made a sort of business from his “Dead Birds” renown. During one scene, villagers enact a pig roast for a clutch of German tourists. “Nothing had changed,” said Meiselas, remembering the moment. “It was completely ritualized and totally communal.”But the audience had changed. In 1961, the sun-beaten Westerners wielding cameras and sound booms lived in a tent on the edge of the village. By 1989, the tourists with cameras could have been at a zoo or on a safari.Regarding Pua, Gardner said during the panel, “I’m so glad somebody didn’t put him in clothes and take him on an airplane to Paris.”In the newer film, he said he traveled back to the old scenes of “Dead Birds” in search of old friends and not as a field anthropologist. “I approached it, if I may say so, as an artist,” said Gardner. Then he added what could summarize his 60 years of filmmaking in search of humanity’s core. “I was never a scientist.”center_img Pua in 1989, holding a picture of himself as the young swineherd featured in “Dead Birds,” filmed 28 years before. October marks the 50th anniversary of “Dead Birds,” the groundbreaking documentary of a Stone Age tribe that survived into the 20th century. Its creator was Robert Gardner ’47, the longtime director (1957-1997) of the Film Study Center, the creative arm of Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.The Harvard Film Archive hosted a recent retrospective screening of “Dead Birds.” Gardner helped to found the archive too, in 1979, and remembered its prototype as “a few shelves in the closet” at the Carpenter Center. “Things have only gotten better as time has gone by,” he said.Time has been kind to “Dead Birds,” a lyrical study of the lives, beliefs, practices, and ritual warfare of the Dugum Dani peoples in the remote Grand Valley in the highlands of western New Guinea. At the invitation of the Dutch government, Gardner and a small team spent six months in 1961 filming what were then thought to be the world’s last practitioners of Neolithic culture, with stone tools, clan-sized villages, pervasive magic, and ritual warfare.Gardner described his 1961 self in his book “The Impulse to Preserve” (2006), as “a lapsed graduate student trying to invent an anthropology that used film and photography instead of words.” He went on to make a film every two or three years between 1964, when “Dead Birds” was officially released, until “Forest of Bliss” in 1985. These days, the director still lives near Harvard Square, and would rather write than make films.The day after the anniversary screening, the archive sponsored a related screening. “Dead Birds Re-encountered” (2013) is a cinematic rendering of Gardner’s 1989 return to the scenes and people of the 1963 film. It was filmed in the same villages and the same valley, though the locale is now called Irian Jaya, Indonesia. In the intervening years, one traumatically new feature had appeared: a road. Gardner called it “a scar” that cut across a once “ravishing valley.” The opening scene is of a truck rumbling noisily past, kicking up dust.The truck scene is a jarring antipode to the rhythms of the earlier film that first screened at Harvard in 1963. “Dead Birds” revolutionized the way anthropology was presented on film.last_img read more

Our endless fascination with pi

first_imgFor centuries, pi — the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter — has fascinated mathematicians and scientists. The number, which is infinite but never falls into a repeating pattern, is used in formulae throughout the sciences. For more perspective on the significance and fascination with the number, for Pi Day (3.14) the Gazette spoke with Jacob Barandes, a lecturer and director of graduate studies for physics.Q&AJacob BarandesGAZETTE: Why do you think pi has fascinated people for so long?BARANDES: People have needed to calculate distances around circles and the areas of circles for a very long time, so the concept of pi has been around for millennia. But pi kept thwarting early efforts to pin numbers down to simple cases.Many people know that pi isn’t a rational number, meaning that it can’t be expressed as a whole number divided by another whole number. But pi is also a transcendental number, meaning that it isn’t the square root of a rational number, or even the solution to anything like a simple equation involving x’s and x-squareds and x-cubes. So pi is the most familiar and concrete example of what’s known as a transcendental irrational number, and today we know that transcendental irrational numbers are actually vastly more common than rational numbers.When expressed as a decimal expansion, pi never repeats. All kinds of patterns show up in its decimal representation, so it looks random, but obviously we can predict as many of its digits as we want given enough computing power and time, so it’s also deterministic. “It’s remarkable that something so close to us that’s been with us for so long continues to offer up so many wonderful mysteries.” Making math more Lego-like Solving the problem of the calculus whiz Harvard lecturer helps provide research-backed answer on authorship of Beatles classic Early efforts to calculate pi with increasing levels of accuracy presaged advanced developments in mathematics like limits and calculus, and pi also started showing up in lots of examples far beyond its humble origins, from higher-dimensional geometry to number theory to astronomy to quantum mechanics. It’s remarkable that something so close to us that’s been with us for so long continues to offer up so many wonderful mysteries.GAZETTE: There is a theory that pi contains every possible number sequence, and if that’s the case, it could — in theory — encode every story that’s ever written, or ever will be written. This makes the number feel almost cosmic in its dimensions.BARANDES: There’s an old idea going back at least to the fictional “Library of Babel” described by Jorge Luis Borges in the 1940s about an imaginary infinite library containing every possible book that could ever be written, organized systematically so that as you might imagine moving from one room to the next, you could eventually obtain whatever book you want, down to the last letter. If you eventually arrive at the book you’ve been seeking, have you discovered it, or have you invented it?It’s not known for sure whether the decimal representation of pi contains every conceivable pattern of digits that one could imagine, but many mathematicians think that it might be true.We can encode any letter or punctuation mark in terms of numerical digits, so this would mean that pi is essentially that Library of Babel. Every name, every story, every aspect of anyone’s life — the entire history of every possible universe — all of it would be stored somewhere in the infinite list of digits in the decimal representation of pi.Of course, pi wouldn’t be unique in potentially having this feature — it could be true of infinitely many other irrational numbers as well. But it does make one wonder about what breathes life into the particular universe which we inhabit, when infinitely many other universes are in principle encoded in a specific number like pi. That’s certainly a philosophical question if I’ve ever heard one. You say John, I say Paul. But what does stylometry say? 3-D picture-language has far-reaching potential, including in physics Related Researchers sought answers on college success in study of more than 6,000 freshmenlast_img read more

Biosecurity survey

first_imgBy Faith PeppersUniversity of GeorgiaGeorgia farmers can add their input on biosecurity issues to farmer opinions nationwide through a survey now being conducted.The 40-state Extension Disaster Education Network received U.S. Department of Agriculture funds to identify farmers’ educational needs on homeland security.”Georgia farmers need to respond to the EDEN survey,” Charles McPeake said, “to help present an accurate description of grassroots positioning and needs related to the homeland security issue.”McPeake is the agriculture and natural resources program leader with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.”This accumulation of information allows concerned organizations like Extension to provide more timely information for specific situations,” he said.November surveyThe EDEN survey will be conducted through November. To take the survey, farmers may visit the EDEN Web site ( and click on “Homeland Security Surveys,” then on “Survey of Ag and Horticulture Producers.”The survey is anonymous. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Farmers can complete it anywhere they have access to the Web, including libraries and Extension offices.”There are factors concerning agriculture that lead experts to disagree about whether farming and the food supply are at risk to bioterrorism,” said Steve Cain, EDEN delegate and a Purdue University Extension Service specialist. “Whether or not there is a real threat to the American food supply, even the risks bring up issues that society must deal with.”Biosecurity issuesThe EDEN project will help measure farmers’ perceptions about biosecurity issues on the farm.”Since September 11, the news media have done a credible job of providing information about homeland security,” Cain said. “But often that information raises questions and debate that can only be addressed with educational programs.”The survey will help Extension staffs, nationally and in each state, know how to direct educational programs. Experts will use the information to make educational materials available to farmers.”Georgia began focusing on biosecurity and agrosecurity when foot-and-mouth problems emerged in England,” McPeake said. “Then along came 9/11, which threw our nation into the unknown.”To create awareness of these issues, UGA put together a CAES task force and agrosecurity conference.

Council Authorizes Tax Incentives To Create Snowshoe Manufacturing Jobs In Vermont

first_imgCouncil Authorizes Tax Incentives To Create Snowshoe Manufacturing Jobs In VermontMONTPELIER — The Vermont Economic Progress Council recently approved almost a quarter-million dollars in tax credits to a Williston firm that plans to manufacture snowshoes in Vermont.The council approved an application from TSL USA, LLC at its meeting on October 27th, 2005, after the firm presented plans to manufacture aluminum and plastic snowshoes in Williston, Vermont and distribute their products worldwide. The company was authorized for $241,925 in payroll, research and development and workforce development tax credits to add new jobs and invest in research and development and employee training and education. The company was also considering sites in Clinton County, New York.TSL is very excited to bring the snowshoe industry back to Vermont, said Arnaud Claude, President of TSL USA. Thanks to the hard work of the Vermont Economic Progress Council, the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, and the Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation, we are going to create new jobs in Vermont, developing and manufacturing high quality snowshoes that will be sold to consumers worldwide.Claude said he hopes to have the first prototype snowshoes completed in January and to have production underway in March. He anticipated starting with 4 or 5 workers with plans to ramp up to 25 in five years.I love it in Vermont, Claude said. Vermont is the image for the snowshoe industry.The tax incentives were authorized based on job creation and capital investments that must occur before the credits can be claimed. The Council approved the application after reviewing nine guidelines and applying a rigorous cost-benefit analysis that projects whether the activity encouraged by the tax incentives will have a positive or negative impact on the region and state. This analysis showed that if the company meets all its projections and utilizes all the tax credits, the State will realize a net increase in revenues of $431,200. The Council also determined that the project would not occur or would occur in a significantly different and less desirable manner if not for the incentives being authorized.These incentives generate good jobs that pay well and increase income levels here in Vermont, said Lawrence Miller, chair of the nine-member council of business people from around the state. “If the credits are claimed, it means that the applicant has performed as expected, created jobs and invested in Vermont. The net fiscal impact is outstanding for Vermont and we’re pleased to offer these incentives.”The Vermont Economic Progress Council (VEPC) is an independent body appointed by the Governor, and is responsible for administering the Economic Advancement Tax Incentive program. It is housed within the Department of Economic Development at the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.We are very pleased at the prospect of new jobs being created in Vermonts manufacturing sector, said Kevin Dorn, Secretary of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development.-30-last_img read more

Filings Indicate Peabody May No Longer Be a Going Concern

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Taylor Kuykendall for SNL:New securities filings from Peabody Energy Corp. illustrate ongoing stress and the danger of a potential bankruptcy, a path that has become well-trodden by large coal producers in recent years.In one Feb. 29 filing, Peabody said it believes an independent registered public accounting firm may likely be required to issue an audit opinion with a paragraph expressing doubt as to the company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The inclusion of such an uncertainty paragraph would constitute an event of default under the company’s 2013 credit facility agreement.In a separate filing, Peabody disclosed it has engaged in discussions with one of the first lien lenders under its senior secured credit agreement. According to that filing, Peabody’s preference is to pursue liability management transactions, such as proposed debt exchanges, but the lender “expressed its concern that Peabody was not pursuing an in-court restructuring.”The basis of the potential going concern paragraph hinges on whether Peabody can complete a transaction with Bowie Resource Partners LLC. Peabody agreed to sell its El Segundo and Lee Ranch mines in New Mexico and its Twentymile mine in Colorado, but Bowie has had difficulty obtaining financing.Peabody’s struggle has caused “unexpected delays” in filing its annual report for 2015. The company had previously disclosed it accessed the full capacity of its $1.65 billion revolving credit facility.Full article ($): Peabody discloses going concern risk; lender pushing for restructuring in courtIEEFA FEBRUARY 2016 REPORT: PEABODY’S STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL IGNORE MARKET REALITIES AND RISK BACKFIRING Filings Indicate Peabody May No Longer Be a Going Concernlast_img read more

first_img(WBNG) — As the Bandera Family Christmas Dinner prepares to celebrate 30 years serving the community next week, 12 News is taking a look back at the event’s history. Organizer Bill Bandera explained Friday, his parents, Carolyn and Bill Bandera, started the dinner back in 1989. Then, the dinner served about 70 people. Shortly after this milestone, however, Bandera’s father passed away. Bandera said he’s working on a new dinner location in Oneonta for next year. Bandera said he never imagined the event would become what it is today, but before he knew it, the team was celebrating 20 years. After spending some time with his mom, however, and seeing just how impactful the event was on the community, Bandera had a change of heart.center_img The next ten years flew by, and the event now serves meals in Binghamton, Endicott and Norwich. “I honestly believed it was over,” he said. “My parents just were like ‘hey you know let’s give back to the community,’ I remember that conversation, ‘let’s do something for the people in this city because we can,'” he described.

Sprouts blamed in big Ontario Salmonella outbreak

first_img Oct 2, 2002, CIDRAP News story “FDA cites mung bean sprouts in renewing warning against eating raw sprouts” Toronto’s health department ordered Toronto Sun Wah Trading on Nov 25 to stop distributing mung bean sprouts because of possible contamination with Salmonella, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care announced the same day. Dr. Sheela Basrur, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, said 379 cases of salmonellosis have been confirmed in the province, according to a CBC news report published today. The report said 26 of 36 regional health agencies in Ontario had reported cases linked with eating sprouts. Salmonella bacteria are found in the intestines of animals and can contaminate sprouts (and other raw fruits and vegetables) that have been in contact with impure water, animal manure, or an infected food handler, the ministry noted. Symptoms of infection usually begin from 12 to 36 hours after a person consumes a contaminated food. The outbreak began early in November, according to the provincial health ministry’s Nov 25 news release. Normally about 20 to 25 cases of salmonellosis per month are reported at this time of year, the ministry said. Referring to Sun Wah Trading, Basrur said in the news release, “We have linked this food processing plant to a number of illness[es] in this outbreak. While the investigation continues, as a precaution, we are advising the public to avoid eating bean sprouts.” The ministry statement did not spell out the evidence linking the cases with sprouts from Sun Wah Trading. In a Nov 24 statement, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said Sun Wah mung bean sprouts have been sold in packages of various weights and under various store names or without the Sun Wah name. Officials did not mention any distribution of the products outside Ontario.center_img The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in January 2002 that 15 salmonellosis outbreaks associated with consumption of raw sprouts had been reported in the United States since 1995. The recommended safety step of soaking seeds in a calcium hypochlorite solution is not completely effective, the agency said. Dec 1, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Close to 400 people in Ontario have gotten sick in a Salmonella outbreak blamed on contaminated mung bean sprouts, according to Canadian news reports. See also: “We expect that there are many hundred more people who have Salmonella poisoning that have not yet come to our attention,” Basrur was quoted as saying. To reduce the risk of illness, the US Food and Drug Administration advises consumers to cook all sprouts thoroughly before eating them and to ask that raw sprouts not be added to restaurant sandwiches and salads. Most cases of Salmonella infection resolve without medical treatment, but the pathogen can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness in children, elderly people, and those with weak immune systems.last_img read more

Free school meals are no healthier – UK

first_imgMailOnline 23 Sept 2013Nick Clegg’S £600 million free school meals  plan has suffered a blow after a Government pilot scheme showed that children  who switch from ‘unhealthy’ packed lunches to cooked meals are no  healthier.Supporters of the initiative to give free  school meals to all pupils in the first three years of primary school say  fattening food in packed lunches is fuelling rising levels of obesity among  children.But a two-year scheme to test the school  meals initiative, in which tens of thousands of children had cooked meals  instead of packed lunches, has found there was no change in their health or body  mass index, a measure of a person’s healthy weight based on height and  gender.A report for the Department for Education  found that although children ate fewer of the fatty and sugary items often found  in lunch boxes, such as crisps, sandwiches, sweets and fizzy drinks, they made  up for it by eating more roast potatoes and chips in the cooked school  meals.Moreover, children who previously had a  packed lunch and a hot meal  at home in the evening were eating extra  because they had two cooked meals a day. read more

Barcelona in ‘danger of economic bankruptcy’

first_img “And all this had to be done while preserving the ownership of the club in the hands of the members and its competitive capacity both in football and in all sections. “If the risks were great, they have now become gigantic. We are in the midst of a pandemic that has brought the planet to a halt and will have effects in all walks of life, also in sport, that today we cannot yet foresee. “Likewise, for months we have witnessed a shameful escalation of chapters in the club’s institutional behaviour in which the latest event hides the seriousness of the previous one, a process that culminated in recent days with accusations and serious reproaches among board members, and six abrupt resignations. “And just as the only priority should be to get the club out of the crisis, the presidency announces a new remodelling of the board of directors in order to stay in power. What is at risk now is Barca as a whole. “This is not a recent problem – we have experienced the sentencing of the club in the Neymar case, the disagreements made public between employees and players with executives and managers, and the audit of the case on social networks, which seems will confirm the scandal. “Let’s add an erratic sports policy, the breaking up of the board of directors and the significant reduction in income due to the pandemic, and the result is the danger of economic bankruptcy and moral decay in which the club has settled. Game over.” read also:Barcelona, Man City could swap Semedo and Cancelo Font reiterated his assertion from earlier this month that Si al futur had put themselves at Bartomeu’s disposal to assist during the COVID-19 crisis and build a “common front”, only to be frustrated in those efforts.

The unvarnished criticism arrives at the end of a turbulent week, with six of Josep Maria Bartomeu’s board resigning from their posts. Outgoing vice-president Emili Rousaud then made the explosive claim that “someone had the hand in the till” at the club – an accusation strongly rebuffed by Barcelona. Rousaud also suggested possible impropriety regarding Barca’s alleged agreement with 13 Ventures, a PR company claimed by a report on Spanish radio programme Que t’hi jugues in Feburary to have been hired to clean up Bartomeu’s image on social media and disparage current and former players critical of his regime. Both Barcelona and 13 Ventures denied the allegations but that episode, along with the controversial signing of Neymar in 2013, were both referenced by Font in his critique. The letter read: “For some time now the project Si al futur has been warning Barca members that the club was heading towards the ‘perfect storm’ – it had to replace the best generation of footballers in history, build and finance the Espai Barca development project and compete against corporations with almost unlimited financial resources.last_img read more

Lampard hoping to bow out in style

first_img Given Ecuadorian journalists called him Frankie throughout the pre-match press conference, one reporter suggested perhaps it was not a case of ‘Frankie Goes to Hollywood’ but New York instead. “You’re very quick,” Lampard said with a laugh. “I’ve seen the headline before. “They were very familiar with me in there. Frankie sounds nice but I can’t comment on the other end of that.” However, Lampard was less coy when it came to his international future ahead of captaining England for the seventh occasion. Just two weeks away from his 36th birthday and with 103 caps under his belt, it was put to him that this summer could be his international swansong. “It looks that way,” Lampard said. “It is hard. I find it hard to get the words out to say that it is because I am very proud to play for my country and I’ve loved every minute. “So who knows what will happens and I’d rather comment on that after, to be honest. We’ll see. “Let’s hope we have a big, successful World Cup and then I will comment on that afterwards.” That focus on the World Cup has taken England to Miami, where the squad is this week acclimatising to the hot and humid conditions expected in Brazil and, in particular, their Group D opener against Italy in Manaus on June 14. “It is a step up again,” Lampard said. “Portugal we tried to recreate it even though the weather wasn’t quite what we thought it would be. “We wore a lot of clothes, trained under a bit of pressure and the same back in England. “It’s a step up today. This was the first time we really opened up our lungs with the humidity. “You feel it, there’s no mistaking it. You do feel the difference but we have to get used to that as quick we can. “Maybe tomorrow will be tough for us and hopefully the days after that you get a bit better with it.” After 13 years, 11 major trophies and 211 goals, the 35-year-old midfielder confirmed in a statement on Monday evening his exit from Chelsea. Lampard leaves as one of the Blues’ all-time greats and was clearly emotional when speaking about his time in west London at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, where he will captain England against Ecuador on Wednesday. Press Association Frank Lampard may not know where his club future lies but accepts this summer’s World Cup is likely to bring the curtain down on his England career. “It was strange to hear the statement down the phone, talking to people back home yesterday,” he said. “It is quite strange when it is said out of loud, I have to say, because it has been such a huge part of my life. “That is kind of tough to an extent, but I am a big boy and I understand things move on. “Yes, I’m proud. I’m proud to have been at a fantastic club, a club I went to quite wet behind the ears from West Ham and the club completely took me in. “I am proud of nights like Munich. They will stay with me forever and, like I said in the statement, I will always have a lot of Chelsea in me. I’ll be back at games. “I had a bundle of texts last night from people I’ve met along the way – Chelsea fans, friends, my family – and that made me feel very proud, I have to say.” While keen to reflect on his Chelsea career, Lampard – much like in his statement – gave little indication as to what the future might hold. A move away from top-level European football has been mooted, with New York City FC, fresh from signing David Villa, the apparent frontrunners. last_img read more

ICC World Cup ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: India must understand the kind of surfaces they will get – Sachin Tendulkar

first_imgIndia will take on Bangladesh in their last warm-up game before the World Cup.India will take on South Africa on June 5 at Southampton.Ravindra Jadeja smashed a fifty for India in the game against New Zealand. India squared up in overcast conditions and had to encounter the swing of Boult and Tim Southee. In the New Zealand innings, Jasprit Bumrah bowled just four overs and conceded two runs and took one wicket. Tendulkar said the team was trying out different combinations but they needed to be aware of what kind of pitches they were going to encounter in the tournament.“Many times, teams are trying different combinations, batting line up. Almost all teams are not sure about their front-line, playing 11, several bowlers and batsmen are rested. Nobody is wanting to expose their proper playing XI. All the teams are preparing and trying different combinations in those conditions, which would work for them. (The Oval) was a different kind of pitch with a bit of grass cover on it and the conditions were slightly in favour of bowlers upfront and as the time went by, the wicket settled down little more. I think the wickets will change, they will get little flatter and spinners will come into play much more,” Tendulkar said.India begins their World Cup campaign on June 5 against South Africa at Southampton and is one of the favourites along with England. However, Tendulkar said Afghanistan can produce some surprises.“I have said it earlier that Afghanistan will throw up surprises in the World Cup because they have one of the best spin bowling attacks. Even if they treat it like Test cricket, they will still take wickets in the middle overs,” Tendulkar said. New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team did not get their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign to an ideal start as they suffered a six-wicket loss to New Zealand at The Oval. In overcast conditions and with some swing available for the new ball, Trent Boult wrecked the Indian top order with Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli falling cheaply. Hardik Pandya looked good but Ravindra Jadeja’s attacking fifty gave them some respectability. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor smashed fifties as New Zealand coasted towards victory but India legend Sachin Tendulkar has said the team need not panic.“I will not judge the team after each and every game. It’s a tournament and things like these will happen. The main tournament has not even started yet.  I think, we need to settle down, one or two games may go here and there. India should make most of the practice matches leading to the World Cup. They should understand what kind of surfaces they might get. I won’t panic at all as of now,” Tendulkar said at a round-table conference on the sidelines of the Mumbai T20 League in Mumbai on Sunday. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Wrestling team heads to Green Bay

first_imgThe Wisconsin wrestling team opens its season Friday at the Hall of Fame Duals in Green Bay, and with nine returning starters, there are high hopes for the season.“A lot of good things are happening right now with the team,” head coach Barry Davis said. “We as coaches right now are pretty pleased with what’s going on.”The Badgers will square off against the University of Dubuque, Tri-State University and UW-Oshkosh. Last year the cardinal and white opened their season against both Dubuque and Oshkosh, bringing home a pair of victories.After last week’s wrestle-offs at the Field House, the nine returning starters secured their spots. The lone question was who would take over All-American Tyler Turner’s spot in the 149-pound division, and true freshman Kendall Vogel outlasted fellow newcomer Weldon Rogers to earn the spot.“[Kendall’s] just a freshman,” Davis said. “I got to watch him wrestle last year at the state tournament. He’s shown some steady improvements since he’s been here. We’ll see how he reacts with some competition.”The Badgers return 19 letter winners from last year, headlined by Craig Henning, the preseason favorite of two polls at 157 pounds. Henning was the national runner-up last season at the same weight class, but knows the poll doesn’t mean much once the season starts.“We don’t really care too much about the preseason hype,” Henning said. “March is when it really matters, so we’re just preparing for that. We’ve got some real tough matches at the beginning of the year.”Henning was chosen to be one of three captains this season along with returners Dallas Herbst and Kyle Ruschell. Both were NCAA qualifiers last season. As a sophomore, Ruschell was surprised when he learned he would be one of the team’s captains.“I did not expect to be a captain, especially this year,” Ruschell said. “Especially having so many guys a year above me, most of them have been in the starting lineup already. They’ve got that experience over me. But this team has so many leaders.”The captains are named, the lineup is set, and the Badgers are ready to go. After spending the last two months with their team, these grapplers are anxious for their first meet.“We’ve been beating up each other,” Ruschell said. “It’s about time we get out and see how we’ve improved and what we need to work on.”“We’re excited. It’s been awhile since we’ve actually competed,” Herbst added. “We’re ready to see where we’re at as a team this year as compared to last year. With nine guys coming back, you kind of hope to do what you did the year before and hopefully better.”last_img read more

I coached the national team, I would never do that coming into any venue and you have to respect the property of other people whatever they say,” said Guiao, who coached the national team in 2008.Guiao thinks the burst of emotion from Gilas was “natural human instinct” after seeing one of their teammates taking a hard hit, but what came after—the ganging up on Australia guard Chris Goulding and chair-throwing that hit another Aussie Nathan Sobey in the nape—was uncalled for.“It’s more embarrassing had Gilas not react the way they did and just allowed themselves to get bullied by a foreigner here in our country,” Guiao said. “But burst of emotion, it should’ve been pacified.

Mourinho wants Guardiola to get same treatment as rivals

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s Spanish manager Pep Guardiola (C) celebrates after Manchester City’s English midfielder Raheem Sterling scores his team’s second goal during their match against Southampton in Manchester, north west England, on November 29, 2017 © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 2 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted he believes Pep Guardiola received preferential treatment in avoiding being sent to the stands on Wednesday.Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, ran onto the pitch to celebrate Raheem Sterling’s late winner as his team beat Southampton 2-1 to remain eight points clear of United at the top of the Premier League. He was then seen in animated conversation with Nathan Redmond after the final whistle, appearing to remonstrate with the Southampton winger.Redmond has since released a statement saying that Guardiola was “only very complimentary and positive” during the exchange, although the Football Association has asked the Spaniard to explain his actions.However, the fact that Guardiola received no punishment at the time for entering the field of play angered Mourinho, who was sent to the stands during his team’s 1-0 win at Southampton in September after stepping onto the pitch.Mourinho did not receive a touchline ban over the incident, but feels that he was punished unfairly.Asked if he was surprised that Guardiola was not sent to the stands, Mourinho said: “Surprised? No. Not surprised.”Pushed to elaborate, Mourinho indicated to journalists that he would get into trouble with the football authorities if he said what he actually thought.He said: “No. No. No. No. You are asking me one question, if I am surprised. I say I am not surprised.“The second question is nothing. It’s another one. I can’t answer to the second question.“You know, if you are my friends, don’t ask me the question, because you know I get into trouble, so no.”Mourinho, meanwhile, has defended striker Romelu Lukaku, suggesting that the Belgium international will soon rediscover his scoring form.– Criticism –Lukaku scored 11 goals in his first 10 appearances for United after joining from Everton in July, but has scored just once in 11 games for the club since.Mourinho suggested at the end of October that the striker was receiving unfair criticism from the club’s supporters.He said then that Lukaku should be untouchable because his all-round contribution on the pitch was so important.The manager has now indicated that he retains full confidence in the forward, who is set to face England in the World Cup in Russia next year after they were drawn in Belgium’s group.“He is going to score soon, no problem. He is going to score soon,” he added.“If it’s Saturday, Tuesday, next week, I don’t know but he is going to score soon. No problem at all. No problem at all.“For me the most important thing is teamwork and he is second to none in giving everything he has to the team.”Mourinho refused to comment when asked about the possibility of signing Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, who is out of contract at the end of the season, and who has been widely linked with a move to Old Trafford.The United manager, though, is not surprised that Ozil has got so close to the end of his Arsenal contract without agreeing another one.“That’s football,” he said. “There are other important players in Europe in other teams that they finish their contracts.“Sometimes players decide to go in this direction, which is the right that they have.“They gamble, because you know, imagine one of these players has a big knee injury, if one of these players has one of these injuries, probably next season, he is without a club.“Players have the right to do that and I don’t blame the clubs because the clubs, they try.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Nelspruit seeks investors

first_img22 August 2008 Potential investors, who will also have the opportunity to co-develop a five-star hotel that will also be located in the complex, were taken on a site visit in July. The Mpumalanga Economic Growth Agency (Mega) is looking for investors for the construction and development of a 5 000-seat international convention centre to be built in the provincial capital, Nelspruit. “The facility will probably be built to international standards and will be able to host national and international meetings like the one in Durban,” he said. “Conferences and banquets, as well as concerts and selected indoor sporting events, will also be accommodated, not just for the World Cup, but beyond.” SAinfo reporter and BuaNews Mbombela municipal spokesperson Vusi Sibiya added that once complete, the centre would support in growing the province’s tourism industry. “We are still in the process of finding suitable investors to start the project.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The 46 000-seater stadium, which will conform to international standards, is expected to be complete by October 2009. The stadium is expected to host five first round matches. “Mega is acting as a facilitator of the project as part of our mandate to attract new investment into the province,” Mega trade and investment head Anton Scheepers said in Nelspruit this week. The centre, as well as the five-star hotel, is being planned so the town can take full advantage of hosting football matches during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. The project has already attracted the support of both the Mpumalanga provincial government and the Mbombela Local Municipality of which Nelspruit is a part. Construction is currently ongoing at the Mbombela Stadium, which is approximately seven kilometres from the city centre and about 12 kilometres from the nearby Kruger-Mpumalanga airport. Its close proximity to various game parks will offer spectators the opportunity of seeing wildlife during the tournament’s rest days.last_img read more

ICTSI Pulls Plug on Lekki Port Project in Nigeria

first_imgzoom Manila-based container terminal operator International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has terminated an agreement to develop and operate a container terminal within Lekki Port, Nigeria.ICTSI’s subsidiary, Lekki International Container Terminal Services LFTZ Enterprise (LICTSE), and Lekki Port LFTZ Enterprise (LPLE) agreed to terminate the sub-concession agreement signed in 2012, citing delays in the execution of the project as the main reason.The terminated sub-concession agreement had granted LICTSE an exclusive right to develop and operate, and to provide handling equipment and container terminal services, at the container terminal within the port located at Ibeju Lekki, Lagos State, for a period of 21 years.The termination of the sub-concession agreement was deemed effective as of Wednesday, May 24.The project, initially slated for completion in 2016, called for the development of a container terminal with a 2.5 million TEU capacity capable of handling 10,000 TEU container ships.

UN refugee agency works to register displaced Congolese fleeing North Kivu

11 October 2007The United Nations refugee agency is working to register displaced people fleeing confrontations between the armed forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and troops of ex-General Laurent Nkunda in the volatile North Kivu province, where human rights abuses such as rape are reportedly on the rise. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported today that it has started registration of all internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the five camp sites in the Mugunga area some 15 kilometres west of Goma. Over 27,500 internally displaced have been identified. This represents just a small fraction of the hundreds of thousands of Congolese who have fled North Kivu; many are staying with host families while others are in districts not yet reached by relief workers. Once access for humanitarian personnel to displacement zones improves, registrations at other IDP sites may be possible, the agency said in a news release. “This registration has long been awaited. Once the operation is completed, the displaced registration lists will be available to partner UN agencies and NGOs [non-governmental organizations] to distribute food and other assistance goods in the Mugunga IDP sites,” said UNHCR Representative Eusèbe Hounsokou, who is overseeing the operations from Kinshasa.Armed confrontations in the area intensified on 7 October and since then a trickle of newly displaced people have been arriving in the IDP sites close to Goma. “Displaced report severe violations by armed groups, such as pillaging and destruction of houses, killings of civilians, recruitment of children into armed groups and cases of rape,” the UN peacekeeping mission in DRC (MONUC) said. The mission cited statistics showing 351 cases of rape have been reported in North Kivu during September 2007, which represents a 60 per cent increase from the prior month. Survivors of rape among the new IDP arrivals are referred to specialist organizations for medical treatment and psycho-social support. “UNHCR remains highly concerned that a further intensification of fighting may lead to the new displacement of tens of thousands of civilians,” Mr. Hounsokou added. In New York, a UN spokesperson reported that humanitarian convoys have tried to deliver food and supplies to areas where the fighting is taking place, but many have been forced to delay operations because of insecurity. Meanwhile, the Force Commander of MONUC, General Babacar Gaye, estimated that there are 700,000 displaced people in the province and emphasized the mission’s focus is on resolving the crisis.“MONUC is very conscious in this situation of the consequences for the population,” he said in an interview published by the mission. “We are coordinating with the humanitarians, and we give our support in terms of security in the displaced persons zones.”The mission is also conscious of what the DRC’s Armed Forces, known as FARDC, are doing on the ground, he added. “We give the FARDC a certain support, in particular in the medical evacuation of their wounded, to transport their reinforcements and their ammunition. But our number one concern really remains that a fast solution is found to a situation which risks becoming a drama of a bigger scale.”He said MONUC would be ready to absorb the forces of Mr. Nkunda in “brassage,” its retraining programme for ex-combatants to form a part of integrated FARDC brigades. “The decision to send 500 men for brassage was made by Nkunda, but unfortunately it has not been carried out on the ground,” he said. “We are ready to fully engage in this process.” read more

Senior UN official stresses potential impact of new partnership with academia

Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Kiyo Akasaka looked forward to a busy 2011 for the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), an initiative of the Department of Public Information (DPI) that was officially launched yesterday in New York.“Over the past two days, representatives of 160 universities from 47 countries – altogether about 500 people – have come to the UN to share their ideas to exchange information and make plans for future collaboration on issues that affect us all,” he told a news conference on the second day of the launch event.Mr. Akasaka said that participants involved in the initiative will carry out at least one activity next year in support of UNAI’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, literacy, sustainability and conflict resolution. Next year will also see the founding of ten institutional hubs, one for each of the principles.“Each hub will be a focal point to receive and to disseminate ideas among universities and with us at the United Nations,” he stated. The two-day launch culminates tonight with a concert at UN Headquarters featuring the Asia-Pacific United Orchestra performing a variety of works, a special appearance by the UN Staff Recreation Council Singers and a unique performance of the Water Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra by Tan Dun.“The concert is a celebration of this launching of this new initiative,” said Mr. Akasaka. “[It] shows that harmony among different nations and different cultures is being promoted through the very many musicians from different countries playing music in harmony and this is most appropriate for the launching of the new initiative.” 19 November 2010A top United Nations official voiced optimism today about what a newly-launched initiative between the world body and the academic community can achieve in areas such as development, human rights and literacy. read more

SecretaryGeneral welcomes Iraqi poll results pledges continued UN involvement

“They reflect not only the courage and determination of the Iraqi people, but also their commitment to the political transition process that their country is undergoing,” Mr. Annan said of the results in a statement issued by his spokesman, calling it an “auspicious day” for the Iraqi people.”With the successful completion of this important stage in the transition, the Secretary-General calls upon all Iraqis to come together in a spirit of national reconciliation to move their country forward towards a peaceful, prosperous and democratic future,” the statement added, urging that every effort be made to ensure full participation by mainly Sunni Arabs, who did not or could not take part in the elections.Sunnis stayed away in large numbers either due to a boycott called by their leaders or security concerns. Mr. Annan said they must be encouraged to participate fully in the next stages leading to the adoption of a national constitution with the broadest possible support.”The United Nations is deeply committed to playing a full part in the next stage in the transition, as well as to helping with the subsequent referendum and general election,” he added of the vote scheduled for October to approve a new constitution as well as a new presidential and legislative poll set for the end of the year.”The United Nations will spare no efforts to meet the expectations of the Iraqi people through this critical period of their country’s history,” he concluded. read more

Annan calls for framework peace agreement for Darfur by end of next

“A further deterioration of the situation can be averted only by rapidly consolidating the progress made at the sixth round of talks in Abuja,” he says in his latest monthly report to the Security Council.To achieve a political solution, the Sudanese and the international community must work towards laying the groundwork for a seventh round of peace talks in Abuja, which should be the final round, Mr. Annan says.”It is crucial that a framework peace agreement be concluded before the end of the year,” he says. “Second, it is imperative that, in coordination with the Sudanese parties, the international community immediately begin to plan the programmes and assistance that will be necessary to ensure the successful implementation of any peace agreement reached at the negotiating table in Abuja.”The critical elements of a coordinated approach should include repairing the rift in the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A), which had serious engagements with Government forces in October, and conducting structured and dynamic consultations between the African Union’s (AU) mediating team and the Sudanese parties over the power-sharing commission, the Secretary-General says.”Talks outside of this framework, where some of the parties are excluded, will never lead to any sustainable agreements,” he says.The international partners should also encourage the involvement of southern Sudan’s (SPLM) representatives in the Government of National Unity, he says.Meanwhile, the Zam Zam camp took in its largest single influx yet of newly internally displaced persons (IDPs) in October, some 6,000 new arrivals, he reports.On the humanitarian front, only 20 per cent of the vulnerable resident populations have adequate food supplies of their own, compared with 46 per cent last year. On the other hand, average malnutrition rates have dropped to 11.9 per cent this year from 21.8 per cent last year, he notes.A five-month-old Government blockade of Kalma IDP camp was continuing, violating a significant number of provisions of international human rights and humanitarian law, while all parties were still recruiting children as combatants and several children were abducted or killed during the month. Of the rapes reported, the youngest victim was a15-year-old girl, Mr. Annan adds. read more

Experts open UN session to encourage more accurate use of place names

The UN Group of Experts on Geographical Names (UNGEGN) session will address measures on how to Romanize place names being converted from languages that use non-Roman script.Established over 40 years ago with a view to furthering the standardization of geographical names to assist in the promotion of more effective communication worldwide, UNGEGN is a standing body of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).Consistent place names benefit local, national and international communities involved in the development of activities such as mapping, urban and regional planning, peacekeeping, navigation, trade, cultural heritage and emergency preparedness, officials involved in the session said.“The need for world response to various crises in recent times has underlined the importance of clear geographical names references for use in very practical situations,” said UNGEGN Chairperson Helen Kerfoot. In advance of the UN expert meeting in Vienna, she stressed that participants would have “enormous opportunities to be of assistance in helping to provide easily retrievable, accurate and up-to-date information on place names.” read more

Fox News finds itself in an unaccustomed spot – out of first

Fox News finds itself in an unaccustomed spot – out of first by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted May 23, 2017 12:50 pm MDT Last Updated May 24, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Fox News Channel has found itself somewhere it has rarely been the past decade — out of first place.The network’s weekday prime-time lineup, long the king of cable news, finished behind MSNBC in viewers last week, the Nielsen company said. Among the 25-to-54-year-old audience that advertisers pay a premium for, Fox finished third to MSNBC and CNN for the first time in 17 years.It was uniquely bad timing for Fox, a week filled with late-breaking news unflattering to President Donald Trump, who much of the network’s audience supports. But it also comes shortly after the firing of star anchor Bill O’Reilly, as Fox is trying to establish a new prime-time lineup.Led by the red-hot Rachel Maddow show, MSNBC averaged 2.44 million viewers last week to Fox’s 2.41 million, Nielsen said. CNN had 1.65 million. It was only the second time in MSNBC’s history that it beat both of its news rivals in a week; the only other time was during the 2012 Democratic national convention.Among the youthful viewers, MSNBC had 611,000 last week, CNN had 589,000 and Fox had 497,000.When the weekend is added in — and the more flattering coverage of Trump’s first foreign trip — Fox moves back into first. And on this Monday, with the breaking news coverage of an attack at an Ariana Grande concert in England, Fox essentially doubled its rivals in viewership, with 3.37 million to CNN’s 1.74 million and MSNBC’s 1.65 million.With the broadcast networks last week, “Dancing With the Stars” and the “Billboard Music Awards” helped ABC to a strong showing, second behind CBS and winning the 18-to-49-year-old demographic.CBS averaged 6 million viewers in prime time, ABC had 5.1 million, NBC had 4.9 million, Fox had 2.6 million, Univision had 1.5 million, the CW had 1.3 million, ION Television had 1.2 million and Telemundo had 890,000.The NBA playoffs made TNT the week’s most popular cable network. It averaged 3.45 million viewers in prime time to Fox News Channel’s 2.17 million, MSNBC’s 1.79 million, ESPN’s 1.69 million and USA’s 1.45 million.ABC’s “World News Tonight” won the evening new ratings race, averaging 7.5 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 7.4 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.1 million.For the week of May 15-21, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “NCIS,” CBS, 13.19 million; “Bull,” CBS, 10.85 million; “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC, 10.07 million; “The Voice” (Monday), NBC, 9.112 million; “NCIS: New Orleans,” CBS, 9.11 million; “Billboard Music Awards,” ABC, 8.7 million; “The Voice” (Tuesday), NBC, 8.6 million; “Survivor,” CBS, 8.28 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 8.25 million; “Grey’s Anatomy,” ABC, 7.92 million.___ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Football Ohio States No 1 recruiting class not indicative of crucial misses

Urban Meyer watches the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin from the sidelines in the third quarter. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorFive-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman had been Ohio State’s No. 1 target for months. He was the top-ranked player at a position of need and the top player in Ohio.In the end, Urban Meyer and his staff couldn’t seal the deal, and Carman ditched home for another top program — Clemson.Carman, along with defensive end Brenton Cox, safety Jaiden Woodbey and quarterback Emory Jones all left Ohio State for other programs in the final two weeks leading up to Wednesday’s decision date, leaving Meyer without even more transcendent talent than the 20 players that signed to his class Wednesday.On paper, the 2018 class is perhaps Meyer’s best ever as a head coach. However, it should not be overlooked. For a time, Ohio State had four five-star recruits with a chance at five. It ended Wednesday with two, while conference rival Penn State added its third.Carman wasn’t committed to Ohio State at any point in time like Cox, Woodbey and Jones. But it’s expected that the Buckeyes should land the top prospect in Ohio every year. Since Meyer arrived in Columbus, he has landed the top recruit in the state of Ohio every year with the exception of 2016 when five-star offensive tackle Tommy Kraemer went to Notre Dame. As for the other three, it’s difficult for a program to keep players who further from the school committed for a long time, when top programs close to home are knocking on the door.Woodbey, a five-star safety from California, committed in February, but flipped and signed with Florida State Wednesday. Cox, a five-star strong-side defensive end from Georgia, committed to Ohio State in April before decommitting Dec. 6 and signing with the Georgia Bulldogs Wednesday. Jones, a four-star dual-threat quarterback committed to the Buckeyes in July 2016, before flipping and mailing his letter of intent to Florida Wednesday.Those three decommitments in the last two weeks of the early signing period hurt Ohio State and have great implications.The first impact is the optics. Losing three players in less than two weeks, with two being five-stars and another being a highly rated dual-threat quarterback, makes it look as if the coaching staff is losing its touch. That’s probably not the case because Meyer has been an excellent recruiter his entire career and his 2018 class is still ranked as the top class. But given that Penn State landed a five-star Wednesday when Ohio State lost two, that’s added pressure for the Buckeyes’ coaching staff to hold onto prized recruits.Second, Meyer, and quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day had to find a second option to Jones late in the process. Now, they ended with a solid option in three-star Matthew Baldwin from Austin, Texas, who led his team to a state championship game Saturday, but Meyer probably would’ve liked to not rely on flipping a quarterback late to have one for this recruiting class. Baldwin was previously committed to Colorado State.Ohio State’s depth at safety isn’t hurt too much with Woodbey’s departure from the class, but with Cox’s decommitment, Ohio State had to flip three-star Alex Williams from West Virginia just to have one end in the class. Without Carman, it has just one offensive tackle in four-star Max Wray. Both are positions of need.Meyer has already had discussions to play Williams at tight end, so Ohio State would only have three defensive ends for next season, pending a potential commitment from four-star Tyreke Smith. Wray is the fourth offensive tackle on next year’s roster.Ohio State finally beat Alabama in a recruiting class, but it limped to the first finish line Wednesday with key misses that can impact a program for years. That’s something Meyer will have to live with. read more

The Top 50 NBA Draft Prospects According To Our CARMELO Projections

There are a few differences near the top: Hayes and Horton-Tucker leapfrog Morant as the best prospects behind Williamson (CARMELO really appears to love Horton-Tucker), while Culver and Barrett tumble in favor of efficient, rim-protector-type bigs such as Porter and Oregon’s Bol Bol, the 7-foot-2 of son of Manute Bol. I wouldn’t start using these rankings to make my picks if I were an NBA general manager — it’s been shown that scouting rankings are easily the most predictive component any draft projection can add. But they are still somewhat interesting in terms of helping to identify undervalued players whom the eye test alone might miss.And it’s telling that Wiliamson still emerges as the clear-cut No. 1 prospect regardless of whether we’re looking only at statistics or a hybrid between metrics and scouting information. The guy is probably going to be pretty dope in the NBA, and Morant might not be far behind as the likely No. 2 pick. After that, there are a few more solid choices and then a whole bunch of uncertainty. That’s pretty standard for the NBA draft, where potential value drops off quickly after the first pick or two — but this year’s class might be unusually top-heavy even by basketball’s normal standards. 5RJ BarrettSG19315.4C.

Upside WAR ignores a player’s projected below-replacement seasons.*Ages are as of Feb. 1, 2020.+ Player has withdrawn from consideration for the 2019 draft.Source: ESPN Stats & Information Group Unsurprisingly, Duke’s Zion Williamson ranks No. 1 in our prospect ratings with a massive upside WAR of 36.7 projected wins over his first seven pro seasons. To give that number a sense of scale, last year’s top projected prospect — Texas’s Mohamed Bamba — led the pack with an upside rating of just 21.8 WAR, so it’s fair to say that Williamson is a significantly better prospect than we’ve seen the past few years (if not much longer than that).We’re not exactly going out on a limb with our projection: Zion is the top choice in basically every mock draft on the planet. But it’s always nice when the numbers back up the overwhelming consensus of opinion. During his lone season at Duke, Williamson rated better than the median Division I player in every major facet of the game according to the advanced metrics, headlined by a 93rd percentile usage rate and a 100th percentile true shooting percentage. His top comparable player — another former Blue Devil, Jahlil Okafor, whose career has largely underwhelmed — might be concerning, but it mainly speaks to how unique Zion is. The 0-100 scaled “similarity score” between Williamson and Okafor is just 37.1, meaning they’re not very similar at all. (By comparison, the similarity between Zion’s teammate RJ Barrett and model-namesake Carmelo Anthony is a healthy 60.1, which is normal for a top comp.) Simply put, Williamson is a unicorn. We’ve seldom seen a player quite like Zion, who is very short for his position but has great stats across the board (even in terms of rebounds, blocks and steals) and scores so often with such incredible efficiency.Another unsurprising result is the presence of Murray State’s Ja Morant at No. 2 overall. Morant enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign with the Racers, culminating in a triple-double in an impressive NCAA Tournament win over Marquette. To be sure, Morant has flaws in his game (he needs to work on efficiency in terms of both shooting and turnovers), and his upside projection isn’t on Williamson’s level, but he would have been CARMELO’s best prospect of last season, and some of Morant’s top comps — such as John Wall and Derrick Rose — offer a glimpse into his star potential.After Williamson and Morant, there is a huge drop-off before the next group of prospects. Jarrett Culver of Texas Tech, Jaxson Hayes of Texas and Barrett form a clear-cut second tier below Williamson and Morant, and each comes with his own strengths and weaknesses. Hayes is a low-usage, high-efficiency big man who can protect the rim but is a work in progress on offense beyond finishing plays made by others. (Brandan Wright comes to mind as an archetype.) Barrett is a low-efficiency, high-usage swingman with unimpressive defensive indicators, in the mold of Anthony, Andrew Wiggins or Brandon Ingram. Barrett does come with a good amount of upside, in terms of potential value several years into his career, but he also looks like this draft’s best example of a high-risk/high-reward prospect who may just turn into an inefficient high-volume scorer (that classic bane of every stathead). And Culver is a nice all-around wing whose best-case comps include Harrison Barnes and Rudy Gay. Noted bust Joseph Forte isn’t the most encouraging comparison, but Culver’s versatility is a big plus as a small forward prospect.The rest of the draft class drops off steeply after Barrett at No. 5 in our rankings. Some of the players who might be drafted highly but our model isn’t as fond of include Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter (fifth in the scout rankings vs. 14th in our projections), Duke’s Cam Reddish (seventh vs. 12th), Indiana’s Romeo Langford (11th vs. 20th) and Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura (18th vs. 36th). By contrast, players who might be underrated in the draft include Shamorie Ponds of St. John’s (49th by the scouts vs. 23rd in our rankings), Auburn’s Chuma Okeke (41st vs. 17th), Jontay Porter of Missouri (42nd vs. 18th), Matisse Thybulle of Washington (28th vs. 13th), Tyler Herro of Kentucky (17th vs. ninth) and Iowa State’s Talen Horton-Tucker (21st vs. eighth).Just for the sake of comparison (and transparency), here’s a version of our upside WAR rankings that doesn’t include the scouting rankings as an input,4Specifically, every player is assigned a scout ranking equivalent to the No. 10 prospect. which can be viewed as a sort of “stats only” ranking of the prospects this year: 2Ja MorantPG20225.4T.

The 2018-19 season has been over for less than a week, and the Toronto Raptors are still picking up the debris from their jubilant1And surprisingly violent. championship parade. And yet, Thursday’s NBA draft will mark the de facto beginning to the 2019-20 season. So we at FiveThirtyEight are also wasting no time: We’ve fired up our CARMELO projection system and run the numbers looking ahead to the next season and beyond. We’re still making some tweaks and improvements to the way we’re projecting veteran players, so we’ll be rolling out those numbers sometime in the next few weeks. But for rookies, we have the data, and the CARMELO computer is all ready to go. Let’s take a look at the best statistical prospects whose names should be called from the podium by Adam Silver.First, though, a little refresher on how this works. CARMELO (the Career-Arc Regression Model Estimator with Local Optimization) is our system for predicting the career of each NBA player, based on how things tended to pan out for similar players from the past. For rookies, we use a database of college stats (adjusted for pace and strength of schedule) since 2001 provided to us by ESPN’s Stats & Information Group, plus biographical information like a player’s height, weight, age and — before the draft — scouting rankings.2After the draft, we’ll switch those to a player’s actual draft position. Those latter few categories actually matter quite a bit, so older players and those regarded poorly by the scouts will need much, much better college stats to achieve the same projection as a younger player who scores better on the eye test.Like we did last year, we’ll be ranking the members of this draft class on each player’s “upside” wins above replacement — the number of wins he’s expected to add above a minimum-salary replacement (at the same position) over the first seven seasons of his career, zeroing out seasons in which he is projected for negative WAR.3This is done to avoid penalizing players for situations where, in reality, their coach would (or at least should) bench them before they accumulate negative value. One big disclaimer: These rankings don’t include players from overseas leagues, such as Sekou Doumbouya (who played in France), nor do they include players who didn’t accumulate enough time in college, like potential Top 5-pick Darius Garland, who logged only 139 minutes as a freshman at Vanderbilt because of a knee injury. We don’t have a good sample of data on these kinds of players, so CARMELO can’t really render an assessment right now (though we will eventually assign them ratings for our team depth charts next season).Anyway, let’s move on to the rankings: 40A.

Caterpillar launches its largest ever wheel loader

first_imgThe new Cat 994K Wheel Loader is Caterpillar’s largest wheel loader and handles an increased payload compared to its predecessor, the 994H. The standard 994K carries 45 t per pass, and the high lift version moves 42 t per pass, 18% and 20% more, respectively, than the previous model.The 994K loads mining trucks in the 250, 200 and 150 t classes in one less pass than the previous model. The high lift configuration is a six-pass match with the Cat 793 mining truck, and the high lift as well as the standard configuration loads the Cat 789 in five passes. The standard configuration loads the Cat 785 in four passes. More engine power, increased hydraulic flow, greater breakout force and rimpull, and improved lateral stability are also developments that have been made to the new loader.The new 994K also offers options to expand its application range and versatility. The new high ambient package is available to equip the loader for operation in higher temperatures, and the standard cooling package offers improved cooling compared to the previous model. An optional fuel tank holds enough fuel to operate the loader for 24 hours without refueling. New high performance buckets in a wide range of capacities are optimised for the 994K linkage kinematics. The new bucket design has an extended floor, larger radius and angled side bars for fast loading, high fill factors and good material retention.A number of efficiency improvements, such as the electronically controlled and hydraulically driven cooling system fan, help keep operating costs down. The new engine air filtration system delivers three times the life of the previous system.The new 994K also features safety and operator health enhancements, such as a reduced stair angle for easy access and egress, a Cat Deluxe seat and four-point seat belts. The operator has increased visibility with new mining mirrors, optimized LED lighting and an improved camera for greater site awareness. The loader also delivers reduced sound in the cab to help fight operator fatigue, and increased cab air pressurisation and filtration keep dirt out.Engine oil change intervals are 500 hours minimum, and all routine service points are conveniently located on the left side of the loader. Hydraulically driven auto lube handles linkage greasing. Superior hydraulic system filtration helps ensure long life and optimum performance, and durable LED lights extend service intervals. Modular design makes field assembly and component replacements faster.The 994K Wheel Loader will be commercially available in the first quarter of 2016.last_img read more

NEC unveils a watercooled Android smartphone

first_imgBrace yourselves, Geek fans: NEC has just unveiled a water-cooled Android smartphone. The downside? The Medias X 06E is a little more girly and embellished than you might like.What’s inside the phone that necessitates water cooling? There’s a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.7GHz running the show. An NEC spokesperson told The Verge the idea is that the water-cooled chip can run at full power for longer periods  since overheating isn’t an issue.It’s not that the chip actually needs to be water-cooled, however. Plenty of other device makers are using the same chip and haven’t felt the need to cram heatpipes inside their phones (yet).But this phone isn’t for just anyone. The Medias X 06E is for stylish, hip ladies that can’t be bothered with a phone that gets hot while they assault its integrated LTE modem with Pinterest pins and status updates. Since the 06E can remain comfortable to hold for long stretches it has to look good, too. That’s why NEC has dressed it up in frosty white and soft pink shells and adorned it with jewelry.Like the HTC Rhyme %displayPrice% at %seller%, the 06E features a light-up charm. NEC opted to go the ostentatious route, however, and skipped the subtle color-matched cord for the unabashed bling of a faux gold chain.You might think a water-cooled phone should be styled more like the Samsung Rugby Smart, or at least have a badass carbon fiber back like the Droid Razr — so that it looks tough enough to power through your marathon mobile gaming sessions. Maybe NEC will follow up with something a bit more Danica Patrick and a little less Penelope Pitstop.last_img read more

Aussie dollar down

first_imgThe Australian dollar dropped to a new six-year low yesterday on news of the referendum’s result.Australian shares are down more than 1 per cent on increased ‘Grexit’ fears and the Australian dollar has fallen around two cents in two trading days to be at its lowest level since 2009.Fetching around 76.5 US cents as Australian traders ended their week, the local currency lost about a cent in European trade on Friday ahead of Greece’s vote.The Australian dollar then lost around another cent as traders returned to their desks on Monday morning, after the Greek population resoundingly rejected the austerity measures proposed by the nation’s international creditors as a condition of further bailout funds.In early trading the dollar was buying US74.78¢, down 2 per cent on the same time on Friday, and its lowest level since May 2009. The sell-off reflects a fresh flight to safe haven assets by investors who fear Greece’s rejection of fiscal reforms in return for EU bailout funds could lead to financial chaos in Europe in the coming months.Source: The New Daily Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Neuers World Cup chances in further doubt

first_imgManuel Neuer’s participation in this summer’s World Cup has been put into further doubt after it was confirmed that he will not play in Bayern Munich’s final Bundesliga game, reports Chicago TribuneThe German goalkeeper has missed most of Bayern’s campaign due to a hairline fracture in his left foot with his last appearance for the Bavarians coming back in September.Neuer sustained the injury during a club training session and is now running out of time to prove to Germany boss Joachim Loew his fitness for the upcoming World Cup this summer.Outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes confirmed on Wednesday that the German captain will not be included for the final league game against Stuttgart, but denied he had ruled out Neuer for their German Cup final clash against Eintracht Frankfurt on May 19.rb leipzig, bayern munichReport: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…“I didn’t say that. The fact is Manuel is not yet in the squad for the last home game against Stuttgart on Saturday. For the cup final, however, the decision is still open,” said the 72-year-old.While Neuer was expected to return in January, he has had to be careful in correctly judging the right time to come back as any relapse could potentially threaten his playing career.However, the 32-year-old believes that he can still make the Germany squad this summer.“I don’t think it’s imaginable without any match practice,” said Neuer.last_img read more

No need for Chelsea to panic says Hasselbaink

first_imgFormer Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has called for calm despite their 3-1 “spanking” by Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.Spurs battered Chelsea in a 3-1 defeat to jump into third place in the Premier League table as Maurizio Sarri lost his unbeaten run, but Hasselbaink says it wouldn’t be wise to read too much into the result.“Let’s not forget they’ve played 12 games and that’s the first game they’ve lost,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports News.“Yes, they didn’t play well in the two previous games but this is the first game they’ve lost.“There is no need to panic, this was always going to happen. It’s just a pity that it happened against Tottenham and that Tottenham played that well.“But there are no issues, there is no problem whatsoever. Sarri has come in and changed it totally, it is a process.”Chelsea will try to get back to winning ways with two successive home games; a Europa League game against PAOK on Thursday and a Premier League game against Fulham on Sunday.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“They need to get back on track, they’ve had a spanking and they need to win against PAOK,” Hasselbaink added.“Obviously he’s going to rest a few players in that game, it’s what he has done previously. Then they play Fulham at home who have got a new manager, a manager who knows Stamford Bridge really well.“That will be a tricky match, it’s a derby, so he needs to get three points there and start building from that.“It’s as simple as that. Forget about Manchester City because that is still three games away.“It’s PAOK, it’s Fulham and getting the confidence and those fundamentals back in their game that were so good in the previous games.”last_img read more

US recognition of tribes under revision roiling communities

first_imgKENT, Conn. — His tribe once controlled huge swaths of what is now New York and Connecticut, but the shrunken reservation presided over by Alan Russell today hosts little more than four mostly dilapidated homes and a pair of rattlesnake dens.The Schaghticoke Indian Tribe leader believes its fortunes may soon be improving. As the U.S. Interior Department overhauls its rules for recognizing American Indian tribes, a nod from the federal government appears within reach, potentially bolstering its claims to surrounding land and opening the door to a tribal-owned casino.“It’s the future generations we’re fighting for,” Russell said.The rules floated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, intended to streamline the approval process, are seen by some as lowering the bar through changes such as one requiring that tribes demonstrate political continuity since 1934, not “first contact” with European settlers. Across the country, the push is setting up battles with host communities and already-recognized tribes that fear upheaval.In Kent, a small Berkshire Mountains town, residents have been calling the selectman’s office with their concerns. The tribe claims land including property held by the Kent School, a boarding school, and many residents put up their own money a decade ago to fight a recognition bid by another faction of the Schaghticokes.“Everybody is on board that we have to do what we can to prevent this from happening,” said first selectman Bruce Adams.The new rules were proposed in June by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which invited public comment at hearings in Oregon, California, Michigan, Maine and Louisiana. President Barack Obama’s administration intends to improve a recognition process that has been criticized as slow, inconsistent and overly susceptible to political influence.last_img read more

Car batteries powered by relativity

first_imgScientists found that 80-85% of the voltage of a lead-acid battery is due to relativistic effects. Image credit: Wikimedia Commons. ( — French physicist Gaston Plante invented the lead-acid battery in 1859 – almost 50 years before Einstein developed his theories of relativity. Now scientists have found that the lead-acid battery, which is commonly used in cars, strongly relies on the effects of relativity. Specifically, the scientists calculated that 1.7-1.8 volts of the lead-acid battery’s 2.1 volts (or about 80-85%) arise from relativistic effects. More information: Rajeev Ahuja, et al. “Relativity and the Lead-Acid Battery.” Physical Review Letters 106, 018301 (2011). DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.106.018301 Citation: Car batteries powered by relativity (2011, January 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The physicists and chemists who performed the study – Rajeev Ahuja, Andreas Blomqvist, and Peter Larsson from Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden, and Pekka Pyykkö and Patryk Zaleski-Ejgierd from the University of Helsinki – have published their results in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.”This is a new, well-documented case of ‘everyday relativity,'” Pyykkö told As the scientists noted in their study, the finding essentially means that “cars start due to relativity.”The lead-acid battery is the oldest type of rechargeable battery, with the main component being lead. With an atomic number of 82, lead is a heavy element. In general, relativistic effects emerge when fast electrons move near a heavy nucleus, such as that of lead. These relativistic effects include anything that depends on the speed of light (or from a mathematical perspective, anything that involves the Dirac or Schrödinger equations).The lead-acid battery contains a positive electrode made of lead dioxide, a negative electrode made of metallic lead, and an electrolyte made of sulfuric acid. Through their calculations, the scientists found that the battery’s relativistic effects arise mainly from the lead dioxide in the positive electrode, and partly from the lead sulfate created during chemical reactions.The discovery of relativistic effects in the lead-acid battery also sheds some light on why no corresponding “tin battery” exists. In the periodic table, tin is located directly above lead and has an atomic number of 50, making it lighter than lead. According to the scientists’ calculations, a tin battery would basically be a lead battery with very minimal relativistic effects. Although tin and lead have similar nonrelativistic energy values, tin’s small relativistic effects prohibit it from being used in an efficient battery.As the scientists noted, relativistic effects have been found in other areas, such as the perennial yellow color of gold and the liquidity of mercury, although the latter is still not very well proven.Overall, the scientists predicted that this understanding of relativity’s importance to the lead-acid battery will probably not help researchers improve the battery; however, the insight could be useful for exploring better alternatives, especially those that involve any sixth period element (found in the sixth row of the periodic table, like lead).

Symphony of relationship and music

first_imgWhen artists create something, those particular art works reflect the shadow of their thoughts, reality of their fascination towards life, and the reason behind their very existence. The perception behind the artist’s creation, most of the time, is totally different from that the onlooker’s. Moreover, the relationship of an artist with his/her creation is quite a complicated topic to comprehend. Mohinder K Puri’s works do not seem complicated to the beholders and that is what makes him different from other artists. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfA striking fact about his paintings is the firm composition without the plethora of structures. A subtle use of colours turns his fascination into reality for which one can easily find forms delicately woven into each other in his creations. Those forms depict human relationships and music– his fascination. He is so fascinated about music that once he wanted to be a musician. It is unfortunate that he could not turn his dream into reality for Triveni Kala Sangam in Delhi denied him admission. But that did not end his love for music. He turned towards Fine Art to create music.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBorn in Quetta, Pakistan, in 1938, Puri moved to Dehradun in 1953 to learn Fine Art. Later, he joined Triveni Kala Sangam and studied painting under the supervision of KS Kulkarni. His work on music is his most beloved and most acceptable work so far. Perhaps no one has ever created music through painting as Puri has, which in itself is a marvelous achievement for an artist. Moreover, his paintings are known for creating dialogues through distinctive expressions demonstrated in them and Puri attributes all these expressions to his interest in music, theater and dance forms. Also, human relation and behavior has remained as the other central theme in the artist’s creation.  One can easily see human forms depicting emotion such as pain, pleasure, joy and sorrows in his creations. There was a time when Puri admired Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. He never refused to accept that his works were influenced by Picasso, his all time favourite. But later he realised that his own identity was getting washed out under the influence of Picasso. So he quit painting and devoted himself to ceramic sculpture and murals. He learned that art in 1960s, when the medium was not yet to evolve in India. It was a small mural job that brought him to Delhi Blue Art Pottery and he came in contact with S Gurucharna Singh, the father of studio pottery in India. Later, S Krishnan, then well known art critic, declared him as the first sculptor in India to use ceramic for sculpture. Human head is the main theme of his ceramic works. He says, “Human head is a mine of expressions, which provides flexibility for experiments.”Recently, MK Puri represented India at the ‘China Hangzhou G20 International Art Exchange Exhibition’ at Hangzhou Qianjiang International Art Museum in China. The theme for the G20 art exhibition this year was ‘Peace, freedom, and environment protection’. Two of MK Puri’s paintings with the theme of Yoga and Meditation were selected for the exhibition. The works were semi realistic and attributed the Indian flavour.This is not the first time that he represented India at an international art exhibition, in the past he has represented the country at exhibitions across the world including Second Havana Biennale in Cuba, Exhibition of contemporary Indian art at Cuba, Mexico, France, Yugoslavia and Myanmar.He was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Fine Art Exhibition in Beijing, where he had been specially invited by the Olympic association to represent India. MK Puri, 78, still feels energetic and enthusiastic. He thinks there is a lot left to discover, “Although I have represented India across the world in various art exhibitions throughout my life, each new invitation to represent India enthralls me and inspires me to showcase India depicted like never before, especially the rich culture and heritage our civilization has. This enthuses me and I feel as a fresher to the world of depicting my thoughts on canvas.”last_img read more

Lundgren STOCKHOLM—In a long-term effort to secure Sweden a place among the world’s most competitive nations the Swedish government has proposed to raise its spending on research and innovation significantly A new plan calls for adding $609 million (SEK $4 billion) to the annual budget by 2016 a 132% increase The hike would be implemented in steps starting with $264 million in 2013 "This is a research contribution at a historically high level" Education and Research Minister Jan Bjrklund told Swedish media at a recent press conference Sweden is already a frontrunner with 36% of GDP spent on research and development in 2009 the latest year for which the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has numbers available Next year’s budget presented in Parliament on Thursday will be finalized in December Under the plan an Elite Program would get $458 million per year by 2016 to offer the country’s best researchers an opportunity to start long-term risky projects while $38 million annually will be used to attract top international researchers to Sweden and provide them with substantial resources for research Both programs will be managed by the Swedish Research Council (VR) an agency within the Ministry of Education and Research The plan also increases the universities’ budgets by $137 million annually by 2016 without any earmarks The investment comes at a time when research budgets in many European countries are under pressure from an economic downturn that has been relatively mild in Sweden "The Swedish economy is doing well That makes this a golden opportunity for Sweden" says VR Director Mille Millnert "There will be a unique window to integrate scientists" from abroad Millnert says Many researchers have applauded the program "It is a fantastic investment for the future" says Per Eriksson the rector of Lund University in southern Sweden "We do not know yet how this money will be awarded exactly but it looks very positive for our universities" But some say it doesn’t address some of Sweden’s problems "The Elite Program is good in principle but it arrives too late" says Christian Broberger president of the Young Academy of Sweden Excellent young scientists already know where to find competitive grants he says—for instance at the European Research Council and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research "What we miss are job positions Universities cannot guarantee junior investigators continuity" says Broberger who says Sweden should adopt a US-style tenure-track system "One must congratulate Sweden for having a visionary government which sees higher education and research as a central priority for the country’s future" says Karl Tryggvason a molecular biologist at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm "However simply introducing new funding programs will not be enough" Most Swedish institutions don’t do enough to promote excellence within their ranks Tryggvason says Rectors and deans are mainly elected based on their qualifications as administrators and aren’t always qualified to support the very best research he says The new money also benefits large research infrastructures By 2016 $30 million yearly will go directly to the Science for Life Laboratory a national center in Stockholm and Uppsala for large-scale research in bioscience medicine and environment The European Spallation Source (ESS) a

about the country’s environmental future Others are withholding judgment at least until the new minister Aldo Rebelo appoints the team of scientists and policymakers who will work with him for the next 4 years Rebelo a hard-line communist labeled climate change an “environmental scam” in a 2010 open letter to environmentalist Marcio Santilli according to Bloomberg View As a legislator in Brazil’s Congress he called the movement to curb the emission of greenhouse gases “nothing less in its geopolitical essence than the bridgehead of imperialism” The New York Times reported this week “His positions on climate change are completely out of phase with the Brazilian scientific community” says Paulo Artaxo an atmospheric physicist at the University of So Paulo who studies climate change in the Amazon “We are expecting serious problems in several areas such as environment biodiversity climate change and forest protection” But like many minister appointments in Brazil President Dilma Rousseff’s selection of Rebelo to lead the Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation (MCTI) was a political decision not a scientific one explains Helena Nader the president of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC) “Rebelo is a representative of a party that strongly supported [Rousseff’s] reelection” Rousseff narrowly won a second term this past October; Rebelo served as sports minister in Rousseff’s first administration He was sworn into his new position at MCTI on 1 January Rebelo’s appointment comes at a critical moment for environmental policy in Brazil In an address to the United Nation’s General Assembly this past September Rousseff called climate change “one of the greatest challenges of our times” and pledged that Brazil would take a leadership role in future climate negotiations By slowing deforestation in the Amazon the country steadily curbed its own greenhouse gas emissions between 2004 and 2012 But in just the last year or so emissions and deforestation both seem to be back on the rise according to the Times For many environmentalists Rebelo’s new position at MCTI is even more worrisome because it comes in tandem with the appointment of Katia Abreu as Brazil’s new minister of agriculture Abreu is in favor of development in the Amazon and has been dubbed the chainsaw queen by critics She and Rebelo worked together on a 2012 revision of Brazil’s forest code which an analysis in Science concluded was likely to increase deforestation Taken together the Rebelo and Abreu appointments “are deeply worrisome and seem at cross-purposes to Brazil’s leadership role on climate change and environment” says Thomas Lovejoy an ecologist at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia who has worked in the Amazon since the 1960s Still Nader says “it is important to give Rebelo some time before” jumping to conclusions based on comments he made in the past She says that several propositions from SBPC were ultimately incorporated into the revised forestry code an experience that leaves her optimistic about working with Rebelo “Our expectation is that regarding environmental issues Dilma’s government is not going to backslide” as hes been busy challenging Floyd Mayweather to a fight.

Pushing the limits of what a DSLR can do are cameras like the Nikon D850 a new top of the line full-frame camera Related News DSLRs have not been getting the attention they deserve because of the ever increasing dominance of smartphones However that does not mean that the DSLR segment is struggling or failing to innovate In fact smartphones are proving beneficial for the segment in the longer run as new photography enthusiasts graduate to more powerful cameras after running out of creativity on the phone Pushing the limits of what a DSLR can do are cameras like the Nikon D850 a new top of the line full-frame camera The camera offers a lot of features which are innovative and really cutting edge While a full exhaustive review of the camera is tough we look at the new features that make this Nikon DSLR stand out MEGAPIXELS: The camera comes with 457 effective megapixels one of the highest in any camera at the moment And this means the details in the photos powered by the FX CMOS sensor are really good While I would not suggest a camera with such high pixels for an amateur or prosumer this is a camera clearly aimed at professionals and the extra MPs add a lot of value for photographers whose works will be blown up to poster and larger sizes Also this means 8256 x 4640p resolutions are possible while shooting full frame videos also COLOURS: I have always felt that the colour quality of Nikons and Canons differ though not from a quality perspective Those who have used both know that Nikon is more richer and Canon more subtler and photographers prefer either because of this I really loved the colours on the D850 more natural than I would have expected Using the Nikkor AF-S 300m f14 lens the light too added to the magic And there is no change in quality when you shift from still to video and this should endear the D850 to a lot of new age videographers out there Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) Nikon D850 camera sample (Image resized for web) SMART CONNECTIVITY: Wi-Fi is nothing new in DSLRs but the way the D850 connects with a smartphone letting you transfer images in jiffy was a new experience for me While usually with DSLRs the wireless link is a pain as you struggle to connect and feed the password Nikon D850 uses the SnapBridge app like a dream The app connects via Bluetooth when it needs to transfer images but shifts to a Wi-Fi link to the smart device when it is to be used as a remote viewfinder I used an iPhone 8 Plus to control the camera remotely and I could use the touchscreen on the phone to select focus This is one of the best executions of a wireless link of a top-end camera of this type I love the fact that you don’t have to link it every time CONTROLS: While the controls — which seem like a miniaturised version of an airplane cockpit — can be a bit befuddling at first you will soon realise that the camera offers you multiple ways to change settings It takes a bit of time to get used to especially for a Canon-user like me But once you get the hang of it you will realise how convenient it is to change the modes or switch to video And you have the remote camera option on the app if this doesn’t work to your benefit My only issue was the lack of an easier way to shift to the amazing slow-motion mode while shooting video Nikon D850 price in
