Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Energy agency Global oil supply jumps sending prices lower

first_imgFRANKFURT — The International Energy Agency says global oil supplies are growing rapidly as Saudi Arabia, the United States and Russia pump oil at a record rate in response to the higher prices stoked by renewed U.S. sanctions on Iran.Producers heeded warnings that U.S. sanctions could mean loss of Iranian oil to the market and thus lead to higher prices. But although President Donald Trump imposed sanctions Nov. 5, he issued six-month waivers for some of Iran’s biggest oil customers. That helped send prices lower.The IEA said Wednesday in its monthly report that October output rose by 2.6 million barrels a day to 100.7 million barrels, helping send prices for Brent crude sharply lower to around $70 per barrel from a four-year high above $86 per barrel in early October.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Climate change tops the agenda of Bans visit to United Kingdom and

27 October 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will travel next week to the United Kingdom and Greece to spotlight the issue of climate change, just weeks before countries will gather in Copenhagen to try to reach agreement on a wide-ranging pact to cut greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the effects of global warming. Mr. Ban will deliver a keynote address next Tuesday at Windsor Castle, just outside London, to a gathering of religious leaders on the role that faiths can play in tackling the problems caused by climate change.The gathering, hosted by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, will hear from the religious leaders on their long-term plans to deal with climate change, according to information released by the United Nations today.Mr. Ban has called climate change “the defining issue of our era” and stressed the need for a successful outcome at the summit to be held in December in the Danish capital.While in London Mr. Ban will also meet UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and attend an event at the headquarters of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to honour people who have taken part in efforts to suppress piracy off the coast of Somalia and in the Gulf of Aden.The Secretary-General will then travel to Greece to help open the third Global Forum on Migration and Development, which is taking place in the capital, Athens.He will also address a special session of the Greek Parliament and meet with senior Government officials, including Prime Minister George Papandreou and President Karolos Papoulias. read more

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk OSC gathering info on cryptocurrency trading platforms after complaints

TORONTO — The Ontario Securities Commission said Friday it is gathering information on several cryptocurrency trading platforms after it received a number of complaints.The regulator said cryptocurrency exchanges, where the digital tokens are bought and sold, may fall afoul of securities laws.“We are aware of several cryptocurrency trading platforms operating in Ontario and are gathering information about their activities. To date, none have been recognized as an exchange, or exempted from recognition,” said Kristen Rose, spokeswoman for the commission, in an email.Rose explained that platforms that offer this type of trading may classify as a marketplace, and would be required to comply with the rules governing exchanges or alternative trading systems.“If an exchange is doing business in a jurisdiction of Canada, it must apply to that jurisdiction’s securities regulatory authority for recognition or an exemption from recognition.”The move by the Ontario regulator comes amid the rise of exchanges to trade digital currencies, as well as initial coin offerings to launch new ones. While the original bitcoin cryptocurrency is nearly a decade old, the sharp rise in prices for the new currencies last year created a flurry of interest and start-ups to serve the new market.Both the exchanges and initial coin offerings have been operating in a grey area as regulators look to define which securities laws and regulations apply to the new offerings.The decentralized nature of the currencies, and uncertainty over regulations, have raised worries about possible financial scams.The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been investigating a number of cryptocurrency exchanges and initial coin offerings and has already cracked down on several.In February, the SEC charged former exchange BitFunder with fraud for operating unlawfully as an unregistered securities exchange. The regulator said any platform that engages in the activity of a national securities exchange must register, whether the activity involves digital assets, tokens, or coins.The U.S. regulator said at the time that it continues to focus on these types of platforms to protect investors and ensure compliance with securities laws.Earlier this week, Australia released new regulations for cryptocurrency exchanges that require all exchange platforms to register and comply with anti-money laundering regulations or face criminal offence and civil penalty consequences. read more

first_imgOurson : un seul mâle dans les Pyrénées Ces deux dernières années, on compte la naissance de six oursons dans les Pyrénées. L’association Pays de l’Ours – Adet annonce qu’il s’agit de cinq femelles et d’un mâle.    En 2009 et en 2010, les différents ours vivant dans les Pyrénées ont donné naissance à six petits. L’association Pays de l’Ours – Adet indique que “les paramètres démographiques de la population d’ours des Pyrénées Centrales démontrent une nouvelle fois la bonne adaptation des ours lâchés à leur nouveau territoire”. Cependant le père de ces six oursons étant le même (Pyros), les caractéristiques démographiques génétiques pourraient être insuffisantes pour assurer un maintien sur le long terme, rapporte Sciences et Avenir, en citant le communiqué adressé par l’association. A ce sujet, l’Etat compte introduire une nouvelle ourse dans la région en remplacement de celle tuée en 2007 au cours d’un accident de la route (voir notre article).

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Im not ashamed says Paris attacks suspect

first_imgThe main suspect in the Paris attacks said he was “not ashamed” in a letter to a woman who has been writing to him in prison, according to extracts published in the French press Friday.Salah Abdeslam has refused to respond to questions from French judges about the November 13, 2015 attacks in which 130 people died at the hands of Islamic State group jihadists.But in correspondence with an anonymous woman published by the daily newspaper Liberation he appeared “talkative for the first time,” the paper said.“First of all, I’m not afraid of letting anything slip because I’m not ashamed of what I am—and then what worse could be said than what’s already been said,” Abdeslam wrote, according to the extract from his investigation file.“I’m writing to you without knowing how to start, I got all your letters and I don’t know whether I’ve enjoyed them or not, they definitely let me spend a bit of time in the outside world,” he continued.“Since you’ve been straightforward I will be too, if I ask you what your intentions are it’s to reassure myself that you don’t love me like a ‘star’ or an ‘idol’ because I get messages like that and I don’t endorse that because the only person who deserves to be adored is Allah,” he wrote.Abdeslam received messages from a number of correspondents but only replied to one woman, the newspaper wrote.The 27-year-old was transferred to France from Belgium in April following his arrest in a police raid in Brussels during which he was shot in the leg.His two lawyers said in October they would no longer defend him given his refusal to answer questions.The Belgian-born French national is believed to be the only jihadist survivor of the attacks in the French capital.Abdeslam is accused of having provided logistical support to the seven jihadists who died at the various scenes of the terror attacks: the Bataclan concert hall, the Stade de France national stadium, and several bars and restaurants in central Paris.last_img read more

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Buy This Comic CROWDED 1

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. “Ten minutes in the future, the world runs on an economy of job shares and apps, including Reapr: a crowdfunding platform to fund assassinations. Charlie Ellison leads a quiet, normal life until she’s suddenly targeted by a million-dollar Reapr campaign. Hunted by all of Los Angeles, Charlie hires Vita, the lowest-rated bodyguard on the Dfend app. As the campaign picks up speed, they’ll have to figure out who wants Charlie dead before the campaign’s 30 days—or their lives—are over.”CROWDED #1(W): Christopher Sebela (P): Ro Stein (I): Ted Brandt (C): Triona Farrell (L): Cardinal RaeWe spend our life day to day with apps. Now, it’s easy to get any job associated with those apps. We become more accessible as we look for jobs driving, dogsitting, babysitting and more. It’s becoming readily available. You can do more in multiple positions and get fast cash while still maintaining a bit of comfortable living. Crowded #1 seems to be the downside of all of this. This new Image series is something unique and unconventional. It mixes the downside of apps with the down and deadly side of crowdfunding. In this vast life, we allow technology to take over our lives and the consequences that come with them.via Image ComicsIs there a story that Christopher Sebela can’t write? Honestly, who allowed him to be this good? Crowded is another phenomenal comic that readers will be able to add to their Sebela bibliography. Crowded #1 delivers a unique and unconventionally narrative that Sebela is so damn good at. He’s a master craftsman of creating worlds that are relatable. However, he spins it all the way around to deliver something we’ve never seen before. With Crowded #1, he takes the futuristic side of crowdfunding and job apps, taking it up a notch with assassins and murder. He spins it and creates a quirky and fun narrative. All of it driven by an unlikely and suspect situation mixed with a fantastical comedic situation, and you’ll love every gigabit of it ever.Something that strikes you immediately about this story is the characters, especially our main two Charlie, the hunted and Vita, the protector. These two are a mess in themselves. If this were a different situation, you wouldn’t put these two in a room together. They could not be more opposite, but that’s something that works brilliantly within the story and makes it unbelievably fascinating to read. Sebela bounces them off of each other, containing and combining them in an impossible scenario with chemistry like no other. They don’t trust each other and hardly know each other. It’s like they’re put in this scenario to understand each other for better or worse. Characters are something that Sebela excels in including his worldbuilding and with Crowded #1, both of his skill sets come together to create a something out of this world.via Image ComicsRo Stein and Ted Brandt are magic together. The two of them could not be in more in sync with the visuals they bring to these pages. Ro Stein takes over pencils, and I am in love with their art. It’s zany, kooky, offbeat, fast-paced and brilliant. Stein drips this it in details with their art, exaggerating details almost styled in the way of FLCL (Fooly Cooly). With Stein’s art, it feels like Brandt’s inks are what’s stopping it from completely flying off the page. Brandt is low-key one of my favorite inkers because he inks down to the very last detail and leaves nothing undone. In that, Brandt brings Stein’s pencils to the front, allowing the work to be a showcase in itself. It’s a rarity when two people come into a comic and create something that feels so naturally them.For the both of them, something that stands out for the visuals themselves are the character designs. I’m an absolute sucker for good character design, and Vita and Charlie could not be more opposite both character-wise, but also visually. White and back, pink and yellow, tall and short, it’s the opposite in every way possible. The way they carry themselves also bring another tremendous visual element that Stein and Brandt bring to the comic. This is also where that brilliant FLCL element comes back into play. From the facial expressions, the clothes, the movements, and more, every panel is something different for the characters. Stein and Brandt craft that world for Sebela, giving readers a peek into their creative hive. However, Triona Farrell also plays a vital role in what brings this comic into greatness with her colors.via Image ComicsI don’t get to say the words “muted neon explosion” together a lot. I’d like to say it for Triona Farrell’s colors in Crowded #1. Farrell’s colors allow the mood of this comic to be high octane and as eccentric and wacky as it needs to be. She gives such an enthusiastic and dangerous mood to her colors. This allows you to get even more excited about each of the panels as you brace yourself for what happens next. Farrell enhances what Stein and Brandt give in their pencils and inks. She’s fantastic with the colors she brings to the forefront while also illuminating the right kind of lighting sources. She lets almost every color to explode on these pages in one way or another.via Image ComicsCardinal Rae’s letters have so much personality within them, and it’s the last piece of this creative puzzle that honestly brings this thing together in such a cohesive and killer way. Rae places in a way that lets both of the characters personalities shine with their lettering. Not only by placing them with their colors (which is a very nice touch), but also placing in a way where you can dishing the different voice-overs. Rae also places where they let the art shine through and places for the comedic timing of the facial expressions and actions in the panels to Sebela’s script.Crowded #1 almost becomes like a character study in two completely different personalities brought together by cruel fate and it’s off to a hell of a good start. Crowded #1 is a wind-up of a ride that won’t stop now that it’s started. We’re along for the risks and rewards with these two characters and hope they can make it out of this alive, or without killing each other first. Crowded #1 is now available on ComiXology and your local comic shop.8/15/2018 Releases – In addition to CROWDED #1, here’s a list of other new titles that came out this week that you should be reading.Best of Archie Americana: Bronze Age by Archie Superstars (W), Archie Superstars (A) Archie ComicsBettie Page Vol. 2: Model Agent by David Avallone (W), Esau Figueroa, Matt Gaudio (A), DynamiteBeverly by Nick Drnaso (W/A) Drawn & QuarterlyThe Weatherman #3 by Jody LeHeup (W), Nathan Fox (A), Nathan Fox, Marcos Martin (CA) Image ComicsSanpaku by Kate Gavino (W/A/CA) – BOOM! – ArchaiaLuke Cage #1 by Anthony Del Col (W), Jahnoy Lindsay (A), Declan Shalvey (CA)Ice Cream Man #6 by W.

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Researchers use new technique to date CAIs and chondrules

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. More information: The Absolute Chronology and Thermal Processing of Solids in the Solar Protoplanetary Disk, Science, 2 November 2012: Vol. 338 no. 6107 pp. 651-655 DOI: 10.1126/science.1226919ABSTRACTTransient heating events that formed calcium-aluminum–rich inclusions (CAIs) and chondrules are fundamental processes in the evolution of the solar protoplanetary disk, but their chronology is not understood. Using U-corrected Pb-Pb dating, we determined absolute ages of individual CAIs and chondrules from primitive meteorites. CAIs define a brief formation interval corresponding to an age of 4567.30 ± 0.16 million years (My), whereas chondrule ages range from 4567.32 ± 0.42 to 4564.71 ± 0.30 My. These data refute the long-held view of an age gap between CAIs and chondrules and, instead, indicate that chondrule formation started contemporaneously with CAIs and lasted ~3 My. This time scale is similar to disk lifetimes inferred from astronomical observations, suggesting that the formation of CAIs and chondrules reflects a process intrinsically linked to the secular evolution of accretionary disks.Press release Chondrules from the chondrite Grassland, L4.

Explore further Citation: Researchers use new technique to date CAIs and chondrules (2012, November 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-technique-date-cais-chondrules.html Chondrules younger than thoughtcenter_img Journal information: Science © 2012 Phys.org (Phys.org)—Researchers working out of the University of Copenhagen have published a paper in the journal Science in which they claim that a new method of dating chondrules and calcium-aluminum–rich inclusions (CAIs) is more accurate than previous methods. Their dating method produces results that contradict earlier findings that have suggested that chondrules formed up to 2 million years later than CAIs; instead they say, the two materials found in meteorites formed at roughly the same time. Scientists believe that the sun and all of its orbiting bodies formed from a spinning disk approximately 4.6 billion years ago. Theory suggests the sun came first, initially surrounded by a cloud of dust and gas that over time became the planets, comets and asteroids. But for that to happen, some bit of material had to bind together first, and researchers believe two of them – chondrules and CAIs – are still present in modern meteorites. Up till now however, there has been disagreement among researchers regarding the age of such materials found in meteorite samples that have struck the Earth.Prior attempts to measure the age of materials in meteorite samples involved using techniques to discern how much aluminum 26 was present. The thinking was that differences in the levels of the isotope indicated different ages. The problem with this methodology, the new team points out, is that it ignores the possibility that objects forming in different locations might naturally have different amounts of the isotope in them.Their new technique involves isolating small amounts of lead found in a sample and then measuring the isotopic composition of both it and uranium and then calculating the age of the material using the known rate of decay of uranium. Using this method, the team calculated that both materials in a meteorite sample were approximately 4.56730 billion years old. And because their method is so precise they say the error rate of their technique is just 160,000 years.If the new method for calculating the age of chondrules and CAIs is adopted by the scientific community it will likely mean revising some ideas regarding the makeup of the early universe.last_img read more

Category: ofvadtdaztjlvjwk Microsoft introduces Remote Development extensions to make remote development easier on VS

first_imgYesterday, Microsoft announced the preview of Remote Development extension pack for VS Code to enable developers to use a container, remote machine, or the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) as a full-featured development environment. Currently, developers will need to use the Insiders build for remote development until the stable version is available. The Insiders builds are the versions that are shipped daily with latest features and bug fixes. Why these VS Code extensions are needed? Developers often choose containers or remote virtual machines configured with specific development and runtime stacks as their development environment. This is an optimal choice because configuring such development environments locally could be too difficult or sometimes even impossible. Data scientists also require remote environments to do their work efficiently. They build and train data models and to do that they need to analyze large datasets. This demands massive storage and compute service, which a local machine can hardly provide. One option to solve this problem is using Remote Desktop but it can be sometimes laggy. Developers often use Vim and SSH or local tools with file synchronization, but these can also be slow and error-prone. There are browser-based tools that can be used in some scenarios, but they lack the richness and familiarity that desktop tools provide. VS Code Remote Development extensions pack Looking at these challenges, the VS Code team came up with a solution that suggested that VS Code should run in two places at once. One instance will run the developer tools locally and the other will connect to a set of development services running remotely in the context of a physical or virtual machine. Following are three extensions for working with remote workspaces: Remote-WSL Remote – WSL allows you to use WSL as a full development environment directly from VS Code. It runs commands and extensions directly in WSL so developers don’t have to think about pathing issues, binary compatibility, or other cross-OS challenges. With this extension, developers will be able to edit files located in WSL or the mounted Windows filesystem and also run and debug Linux-based applications on Windows. Remote-SSH Remote – SSH allows you to open folders or workspaces hosted on any remote machine, VM, or container with a running SSH server. It directly runs commands and other extensions on the remote machine so you don’t need to have the source code on your local machine. It enables you to use larger, faster, or more specialized hardware than your local machine. You can also quickly switch between different remote development environments and safely make updates. Remote-Containers Remote – Containers allows you to use a Docker container as your development container. It starts or attaches to a development container, which is running a well-defined tool and runtime stack. All your workspace files are copied or cloned into the container, or mounted from the local file system. To configure the development container you can use a ‘devcontainer.json’ file.

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica’s inclusion in Zika travel warning has tourism leaders worried Health officials testing first two cases of Ticos who could have the chikungunya virus Birth defects in Latin America spark Zika virus panic The hidden environmental factors behind the spread of Zika and other devastating diseases Facebook Comments Following the confirmation of the first case of aTico infected with the rapidly spreading Zika virus, Costa Rica Health Ministry officials on Wednesday announced new steps to boost surveillance at all entry points into the country.The measures include appointing health officials to monitor around the clock all entry points by land, air and sea in order to detect travelers who might have symptoms of the mosquito-borne virus.The ministry’s coordinator of the National Surveillance Network, Roxana Céspedes, said officials are prepared to launch a contingency protocol in case they spot a traveler with suspicious symptoms.The director of the ministry’s Health Surveillance Department, Daniel Salas, said all travelers entering the country starting next week will be required to fill out a form with general information such as full name, country, departure date and the name of the hotels where they plan to stay. They also will be required to mark with “Yes” or “No” a list of common symptoms in order to determine if they are potential carriers of the mosquito-borne virus.Officers from the health and the agriculture ministries this week began performing periodic fumigations at all ports, airports, border crossings and cargo compartments of all aircraft entering the country.They also are distributing printed information explaining measures to prevent the spread of viruses such as Zika and that contain contact information for help in case symptoms appear. In addition, they are placing posters and banners at all main arrival points for visitors from abroad.Executive branch officials this week sent to the Legislative Assembly a bill proposing fines for people or companies failing to take appropriate waste disposal measures to avoid breeding sites for mosquitoes. The bill was introduced in 2014 and its drafting received the Health Ministry’s approval, but it failed to move ahead in the agenda of priority bills to be discussed by lawmakers.Zika, a disease spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, has symptoms usually milder than those from similar mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue or chikungunya. But it has recently sparked alarm over the risks of birth defects for infected pregnant women and their babies, including neurological disorders and Guillain-Barre syndrome.last_img read more

first_imgAlthough it is the second largest State in America, it was the first time a contingent from Texas visited Sydney, pinpointing Australia as a key market for growth following Qantas’ decision to commence direct flights to Dallas/ Fort Worth from May 16. Representatives from Texas Economic Development & Tourism, Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DWF) are meeting with trade partners this week to promote the State’s tourism offering to ensure Australians make the most of the new service and increase overnight visitation throughout the State. With some 50,000 Australians currently visiting Texas in 2009, Director of Texas Tourism, Julie Chase said the Government body expects to double arrivals by May 2012. “Australian visitors stay an average 24 days in USA, and we hope they spend some time in our State,” she said. Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau CEO, Phillip Jones said they were currently discussing packages with local wholesalers, including Qantas Holidays, with a favourable response already received. “Dallas has access to everywhere, we are right in the middle,” Mr Jones said. “We are very familiar and comfortable for Australians, offering a lot of experiences and our unique stand-out is the tax-free shopping we offer international travellers.” Meanwhile, Ms Chase expects Austin to become a “huge hit for this market”, with hopes that after visitors arrive in Dallas and stay a few nights there, they venture forth to visit other key areas in the State. “The product in Texas is amazing.  There’s so much you can do and experience just travelling around the State.  It’s just that the product is a little unknown here,” she said. Ms Chase did not rule out the possibility of the tourism body opening a representation office in Australia, but said it would be planned following the success of the flights.Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the world’s third busiest, offering connections to 190 destinations nonstop and servicing 19 passenger airlines and 1800 daily flights.  The airport greets some 56 million passengers annually, and is within 4 hours of every major city in USA.
