Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Indigenous protesters in Washington declare Trans Mountain wont be built

first_imgCedar George-Parker at a rally in Washington, D.C. Photo courtesy: Amanda Mason/GreenpeaceThe Canadian PressCedar George-Parker remembers the moment he decided to devote his life to defending Indigenous people and their traditional territories.It was the one-year anniversary of a shooting at his high school that killed four of his classmates in Marysville, Wash.“I dropped to my knees and I said, ‘I’m going to make a change in the world,’ ” he recalled.George-Parker is among the Indigenous protesters in Washington state promising to fight the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.Activists call the project the Standing Rock of the north, comparing it to the fierce Standing Rock Sioux protests that stalled the Dakota Access Pipeline for months.The Trans Mountain expansion, recently bought by Canada for $4.5 billion, doesn’t only affect Canadian waters or land. The project will increase tanker traffic seven-fold in the Salish Sea, which borders British Columbia and Washington, and Kinder Morgan has noted the expansion potential of a connected 111-kilometre pipeline that runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Washington refineries.Many Indigenous activists trace their roots to both sides of the border.George-Parker’s father is from North Vancouver’s Tsleil-Waututh Nation and his mother is from Washington’s Tulalip Tribes.He travels to B.C. often and in April disrupted a speech by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Vancouver.“Our people never had borders,” he said. “We still try not to let borders separate us.”The 2014 shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School deeply affected George-Parker, now 21.He found it outrageous that governments subsidize big business while underfunding education and counselling for young people.Canada’s purchase of Trans Mountain is the latest example of wasted government money, he said.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has criticized Trudeau’s government for buying the pipeline project, calling it a “major step backward” in the climate change fight.Even though Inslee opposes the expansion, some protesters in his state don’t feel supported.Police arrested Janene Hampton in January and charged her with criminal trespassing after she and several other Indigenous women camped on the state capitol lawn to protest resource projects including Trans Mountain.Hampton also camped at the Standing Rock protest for months. She joined the movement against pipelines to protect the water, said Hampton, a member of the Colville Okanagan Tribe, which has traditional territories spanning B.C.’s southern Interior to northeast Washington.“One of the big fights for us as Aboriginal people is the whales,” she said, adding they use sonar, and existing vessel noise has already disrupted their communication.Canada’s $1.5-billion oceans protection plan include $7.2 million to increase the use of technologies that monitor underwater noise. It has also announced other steps to support the recovery of the endangered southern resident killer whale population, which lives in B.C. and Washington waters.The Canadian government often touts its oceans protection plan as “world-leading,” but as recently as May 2017, officials in Washington raised questions about Canada’s preparedness for an oil spill.Washington required Kinder Morgan to conduct a worst-case scenario exercise. The company simulated a spill of 3,024 barrels of heavy synthetic crude oil in the Sumas River, which runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Whatcom County, Wash.In a report following the exercise, state ecology department staff wrote that Kinder Morgan brought together a skilled spill management team including staff from U.S., Canadian, B.C. and Washington government agencies. But the report also said non-floating oil tactics planned on the Washington side were not planned on the B.C. side, and Canada did not discuss the type of equipment it would use to clean up a major spill.The exercise was conducted to meet U.S. regulatory requirements and was not focused on the Canadian response, said James Stevenson, a spokesman for the National Energy Board. A joint U.S.-Canadian plan to respond to cross-border spills exists but was not activated during the May 2017 exercise, he said.Canada’s purchase of the project includes the Puget Sound pipeline, a 111-kilometre line that diverts from the existing Trans Mountain pipeline in B.C. and carries oil to four Washington refineries.Environmental groups now fear an expansion to the Puget Sound line, citing 2017 financial disclosure documents in which Kinder Morgan touted the potential for increasing capacity.“That is definitely a big concern,” said Rebecca Ponzio, campaign director for Stand Up to Oil, a coalition of U.S. groups that oppose new oil terminals and coastal exports.Canada’s Department of Finance did not directly answer a question about whether it would consider expanding the Washington line, but it said it planned to follow Kinder Morgan’s 2018 construction schedule for the expansion of the pipeline in B.C. and Alberta.Trans Mountain, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, said market conditions dictate how much crude oil is transported through the Puget Sound pipeline. While the line could be expanded, the company expects the majority of the expansion capacity from the Trans Mountain project will be for export from a marine terminal in Burnaby, B.C.But protesters won’t allow construction on the expansion to proceed without a fight.“That pipeline will never go through,” said Paul Wagner, a member of the Saanich First Nation who lives in Redmond, Wash., and goes by the traditional name Cheoketen.“The people are rising up.”news@aptn.ca@aptnnewslast_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd A Decree Prohibiting Gender Mix in Beauty Salons in Fez Officially

Casablanca – Morocco’s Interior Ministry issued a decree on Sunday overruling a previous one from the Mayor of Fez, Idriss Azami, which prohibited gender mix in beauty salons. The decision to overrule the mayor’s edict came in a decree issued on February 12. It followed a memo issued by Said Zniber, the Ouali of the city of Fez, to Idriss Azami on February 2, confirming that the state would oppose his decree.In Zniber’s memo, the Ministry of Interior “would oppose the collective decision, taken by the council of Fez, for standing against the provisions of the Constitutive Law of the Constituencies No. 113.14, in particular Article 100 thereof, which refers to the practice of President of the Council of the powers of the administrative police in the fields of protection of health, hygiene, and public tranquility, and traffic safety, by taking regulatory decisions, without discrimination between the genders.” read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd UN envoy deeply disturbed at killing of Palestinian civilians by Israeli military

Terje Roed-Larsen, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, urged the Israeli Government to investigate the incidents in question and prosecute those responsible, and welcomed the announcement by Defence Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer that a speedy inquiry will be conducted.The envoy’s statement came in response to a number of events, including the killing of four family members in the Gaza Strip by Israeli tank fire, four children by a helicopter-fired missile in the West Bank, and four workers shot near Hebron. “At least 15 civilians have also been wounded in these incidents,” Mr. Roed-Larsen noted.Israel’s “prolific use” of tank and helicopter munitions in areas with heavy civilian presence has frequently caused significant civilian casualties, the envoy said. He added that the “flechette” ammunition, which Israeli newspapers reported had been used in the Gaza incident is characterized by “thousands of small darts designed to maximize injury and death.””Military action that fails to take reasonable measures to minimize civilian casualties is a violation of international law,” Mr. Roed-Larsen stressed.The statement also noted that the current conflict has been marked by the deaths of innocents on both sides. “I have consistently condemned the suicide bombings by Palestinian groups as morally reprehensible acts of mass murder,” he said. “Such attacks, however, are no validation for the killing of more innocents.”The envoy reminded the Israeli and Palestinian authorities that “whatever the threat,” both must act in accordance with the standards of conduct proscribed by international law. “No justification can be offered for the intentional or unintentional killing of civilians,” he said. read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Canadian dollar makes mild gain after increase in retail sales underwhelms

Canadian dollar makes mild gain after increase in retail sales underwhelms AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar moved slightly higher Thursday as economists sounded a note of caution regarding a rebound in the latest retail sales data.The loonie rose 0.11 of a cent to 97.63 cents U.S, coming off an earlier climb of 0.53 of a cent.The report from Statistics Canada said that retail sales rose one per cent in January to $38.9 billion, on higher sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers.That beat the 0.9 per cent that had been expected by economists, but the gain came due to higher prices, not increased sales volumes, prompting a tepid welcoming for the news.“Consumers didn’t buy more in January; they just paid more for it,” CIBC economist Emanuella Enenajor noted.“Stripping out the impact of higher prices, sales were flat, suggesting consumers weren’t rushing back to stores in droves after a relatively disappointing holiday season.”Also on the radar is fear that the crisis in Cyprus will intensify. The European Central Bank has threatened to end emergency support of the nation’s banks next week unless leaders can secure more funding.Cyprus must raise about $7.5 billion in the next four days to avoid bankruptcy. Several plans have failed, including a proposal to tax deposits held by the nation’s banks. If the Mediterranean banking haven is unable to secure a bailout, its banks will fail and it could be forced to leave the euro currency.In commodities, copper continued its pullback on uncertainty over European demand. The May contract lost 0.12 of a cent to US$3.435 to pound. The TSX base metals sector dropped one per cent.The May crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell $1.05 to settle at US$92.45 a barrel, as energy stocks fell 0.7 per cent.Gold stocks led the gains, as April bullion rose $6.30 to US$1,613.80 an ounce. by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 21, 2013 9:16 am MDT read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd New multiuse path paves the way for safer Brock commute

Antonio Sergi was like a proud parent Wednesday afternoon.Standing on a brand new multi-use paved path running parallel to Merrittville Highway, the former Vice-President, External Affairs for the Brock University Students’ Union could take pride in the fact the path was something he and his BUSU colleagues had fought hard to make happen.Regional Chair Alan Caslin and Thorold Mayor Ted Luciani cut the ribbon to official open a new multi-use path running from Brock to the Confederation Heights neighbourhood in Thorold.“It’s awesome. It took a few years, but they came through and it looks beautiful,” said Sergi. “It was nice to see the cycling folks, the Region, the University and the Students’ Union all together on this one.”Wednesday marked the official opening for the new path, which covers about two kilometres in distance from the corner of Sir Isaac Brock Way and Merrittville Highway to the intersection of Decew Road and Richmond Street in Thorold.The new paved path and much-improved lighting means a safer commute for students and staff walking or cycling into Brock from the Confederation Heights neighbourhood.“This project was driven by the Brock University Students’ Union and it was all about student safety,” said Brian Hutchings, Vice-President, Administration. “Many of our students live off campus in Thorold and use the Decew Road and Merrittville Highway corridor to walk or cycle to Brock. This will make it much safer for them to get back and forth to the University on a wide, well-lit pathway that’s good for many modes of transportation.”The three-metre-wide path was built by Rankin Construction and was funded by various levels of government, along with a $325,000 grant from the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program.“This project represents a significant investment in the future of our city, in our transportation network, and in the liveability of our community,” said Thorold Mayor Ted Luciani. “These new pathways quite literally pave the way for increased connectivity within Thorold.”The upgrades are part the Brock District Plan, which covers 335 hectares of land in Thorold and St. Catharines, including the Brock University campus. The plan sets out the framework for the planning, design and development of a complete community focusing on higher education as a catalyst for economic prosperity.“Making the community more liveable and connected is a key feature of the Brock District Plan,” said Alan Caslin, Regional Chair. “This exciting plan brings multiple stakeholders together to develop our community by building on existing assets and strengths and making the area more enjoyable for all.”Thorold Mayor Ted Luciani addresses the crowd during the opening of a new multi-use path running along Merrittville Highway and Decew Road. read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Deputy Premier and Minister of Immigration Hon Sean R Astwood sensitizes migrant

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, August 25, 2017 – Providenciales – The Deputy Premier and Minister of Border Control and Employment, Hon. Sean R. Astwood last week spent time engaging with leaders of the larger migrant communities as a lead up to his Ministry’s crack down on the illegal population residing in the Turks and Caicos Islands.On Tuesday August 8th, Hon. Astwood met with Consul representatives of the Philippines, Jamaica and Haiti prior to his meeting of Thursday August 10th when he brought together pastors of the Haitian Community, to discuss the current Immigration and Border Control initiatives in the TCI that were recently announced on July 26th in the House of Assembly when it last convened.Since the Deputy Premier’s announcement of tighter controls and improved enforcement of the Immigration law, there has been much speculation and mischief-making and the purpose those meetings were to provide factual information that the representatives could disseminate to persons in their respective communities.During the meetings which were hosted at the Office of the Premier in Providenciales, Hon. Astwood, who was also Acting Premier and Minister of Finance, Investment and Trade at the time, briefed the attendees on the aims of his ministry to regularize immigration in the Turks and Caicos Islands and further assured them that the intention of this ongoing initiative is to ensure that everyone in the country is here legally and that all laws of the country are being upheld.The Deputy Premier noted that it is important for us as a Government and as a country to do all within our power, guided by our legal frameworks, to ensure the safety and security of all persons that live, work and visit here, and further provided information to the those present on what persons can expect after the deadline of August 14th, 2017.Hon. Astwood informed of his approach to Immigration from a border control standpoint, with the intent to ensure that all persons living in the country have valid statuses to do so.   Towards this end, the Immigration Task Force, in conjunction with the Royal Turks & Caicos Islands Police Force would perform stop and search operations, and persons found to not be in possession of a valid TCI status will be detained and processed.   While some deportation is anticipated, the Department will be keen to look at each case on an individual basis to ensure that persons falling outside of the intended target objective are not disadvantaged by the operations, and that all others are either repatriated or charged and deported in which case they too will be added to the Immigration Stop List.The Deputy Premier impressed upon his audience the need for persons to utilize the time given to either regularize themselves, or to leave the country voluntarily, as this would permit re-entry at a later date, through legal means once approved to do so.When asked for his views on the success of the meetings, Hon. Astwood stated:“I am confident that the meetings provided a platform to not only address the migrant communities concerns regarding my Ministry’s ongoing initiatives but it also gave opportunity to share this Government’s vision and expectations of the migrant population that remain amongst us with the hope that the Consuls and Pastors, as leaders within their own right, will provide clarity to persons in their communities and further encourage them to abide here following all of the laws of our country.”Hon. Astwood also, during the meetings, reiterated the need for all persons to work together to protect the borders and people of the Turks and Caicos Islands. He stated:“Illegal migration threatens the lives and livelihood of our people.   My Ministry and this Government will continue to work diligently to enforce the laws of this land for the protection of our people and the preservation of our Country.”“Make no mistake, we welcome persons from all nationalities to legally enter and reside in TCI and while your main concern is your people, please know that these measures are not just towards some, but they apply to all persons and nationalities that choose to visit, work or live amongst us.”This Immigration initiative is just the beginning of a long term goal to restore balance and order in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Many of our laws are not being adhered to and we intend to change that.”The meetings also revealed that new policies and frameworks are on the horizon and will be introduced to the public within coming months as it relates to work permits, border enforcement and improvements in processing and other operational policies and procedures.The deadline to regularize expired on August 15th, which was Tuesday of this week and joint law enforcement operations commenced as planned. As such, activities are deemed sensitive, reports on the outcomes will be given on a need-to-know basis, as will be determined by the participatory agencies in the exercises, and only in the interest of maintaining national security.Press Release: TCIGlast_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Wylie wants salestax exemption for Papa Murphys

first_imgPapa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza executives said their product is best served hot, fresh — and without a side of sales tax. Rep. Sharon Wylie agrees. The Democratic lawmaker called it an “equity issue.” If you buy a frozen pizza in the grocery store, you don’t pay a sales tax. But if you decide it’s a “take-and-bake” kind of night, the total tab will include a sales tax. The pizza is “affordable and fairly healthy,” Wylie said. Tacking on a sales tax “seems unfair to a lot of people,” she added.Wylie is working on legislation she plans to introduce in the coming weeks that would exempt the pizza company from collecting a sales tax. Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake Pizza company operates in 38 states, each one with varying policies over whether the company is required to collect sales tax. The pizza company, based in Vancouver, has 11 stores in Clark County and nearly 200 in the state of Washington. At the heart of this issue is whether take-and-bake pizzas should be considered prepared foods, which are defined by the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board as having more than two ingredients mixed by the seller and being sold as one item. The board, a consortium of 24 member states including Washington, aims to make sales and tax laws uniform and streamlined. Craig Johnson, the executive director of the board, said prepared foods are subject to a sales tax. So if you’re “mixing meat, crust, sauce and cheese and you’re selling it as a single item, that’s within the definition of prepared foods,” he said.last_img read more

It will be the most comprehensive look at Woodstock ’69, i.e., the first time every artist, including greats Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead, are included on record.Rock On: Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Electric Ladyland’ Turns 50As reported by Rolling Stone, the tracks are ordered chronologically based on the actual lineup order and sets performed during that mystical weekend of Aug. 15–17, 1969, with each artist’s set on one disc.The collection came together from the work of Los Angeles producer and archivist Andy Zax and co-producer Steve Woolard, who had the herculean task of making a pile of 8-track tapes from 1969 see the light of day in the digital age of music. Zax was originally sent to take a look at the tapes back in 2005, and realized there was a massive musical treasure that needed to be unearthed. He didn’t have the resources to do a fully comprehensive release with the 2009 40th anniversary Woodstock set he also worked on, so the new set will finally give (almost) all of the tracks the light of day.”The Woodstock tapes give us a singular opportunity for a kind of sonic time travel, and my intention is to transport people back to 1969. There aren’t many other concerts you could make this argument about,” Zax said to Rolling Stone. “From the moment I saw those tapes, I was like, ‘Oh my God, there’s so much more than I’d ever thought. It was clear to me that no one was exploring this stuff and dealing with it in totality. Here was this vast trove of material not treated correctly.”The three tracks that didn’t make the cut include two songs from Hendrix’s set, per the request of his estate, for “aesthetic reasons.” The only other missing song is from Sha Na Na.The first 37 CDs take you through each act’s show, and the 38th “bonus” CD features audio extras, like attendee anecdotes recorded during the fest. The non-musical audio moments, also featuring off-kilter announcements, are hidden gems of the archival work themselves. Zak speaks to the 38th disc, which includes “this one guy moaning about what a disappointing experience [Woodstock] was and that it was a sell-out. It’s a great slice of real people in the moment reacting to it, which pleases me immensely.”In addition to the CD collection, the deluxe edition of the new set also includes a DVD of the director’s cut of the 1970 Woodstock film, the 2009 “Woodstock” book by Michael Lang and various replicas of Woodstock ’69 paraphilia, like a copy of the original program book. This deluxe set, housed in a plywood box designed by GRAMMY-winning graphic designer Masaki Koikethe, costs $800 and is the only option with the full audio.Rhino also offers more economic 10-CD, 3-CD or 5-LP vinyl sets; all four options are available for pre-order now.Pieces Of Woodstock’s Original Wooden Stage Are Now CollectiblesRead morelast_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Scat Pack Widebody revealed

first_img 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody: A fatter cat Widebody suspension upgrades included massaged dampers, 27% stiffer front springs, and enlarged antiroll bars. The chassis revisions enable the Charger Scat Pack Widebody to pull .98 g on the skidpad and lap GingerMan Raceway 1.3 seconds quicker than a base Charger Scat Pack.The naturally aspirated 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood is unchanged for Widebody duty churning out 485 horses and 475 pound-feet of twist. Working with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the Dodge says it’ll reach 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and blaze down the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds at 111 mph. Order books for the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody open this fall with deliveries beginning early next year. Pricing information isn’t available just yet, but a $6,000 price premium may be a good guess judging from the cost difference between a regular Challenger Scat Pack and Challenge Scat Pack Widebody. For reference purposes, the 2019 Dodge Charger Scat Pack begins at $41,740, including $1,495 for destination.2020-dodge-charger-scat-pack-widebody-7Enlarge ImageThe Widebody Package likely won’t be cheap, but the more aggressive look and uptick in performance may be worth it.

The standard tire is a Pirelli P Zero Nero All-Season, but a stickier three-season Pirelli P Zero is available.A new wheel and tire package means engineers had to go through the Hellcat’s suspension bringing new tuning for the three-mode Bilstein adaptive dampers, 32% stiffer front springs, and larger antiroll bars to the party. Another fresh wrinkle for 2020 is a new multi-mode electric power steering system in place of the previous full-hydraulic setup. With the chassis revisions and meatier rubber, SRT says the Hellcat is capable of pulling .96 g on the skidpad.2020-dodge-charger-hellcat-widebody-1Enlarge ImageThe Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gets an angrier face for 2020. Dodge Brake performance is also up from the six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo calipers. While the outgoing Hellcat needed 111-feet to stop from 60 mph, the 2020 edition comes to a halt in 107 feet. Put everything together and SRT says the big sedan is 2.1-seconds faster around the 2.1-mile GingerMan Raceway road course in South Haven, Michigan. Being a Hellcat, power comes from a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 making 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic sends powers to the rear wheels helping to get matters to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, hit a top speed of 196 mph, and cover the quarter-mile in 10.96 seconds.Customers will able to order the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat this fall with deliveries expected to begin in early 2020. Pricing details aren’t available yet, but a small increase over the 2019’s starting price tag of $68,990, including destination and gas guzzler taxes, wouldn’t be a surprise. 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack WidebodyAfter customers gobbled up the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody cars that launched in 2019, Dodge hopes Charger Scat Pack shoppers will also be taken by the Widebody Package. In addition to the more in-your-face appearance, the Widebody Package adds wider 20-inch by 11-inch wheels in place of the Scat Pack’s standard 20-inch by 9-inch examples. Those are wrapped with bigger and stickier Pirelli all-season performance rubber, but more aggressive three-season tires are options. The wheels cover six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo brake calipers biting down on larger rotors shared with the SRT Hellcat. Compared to the non-Widebody Scat Pack that stops from 60 mph in 110 feet, the Widebody does it in 107 feet. center_img Post a comment Enlarge ImageThe Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack will be looking a little bit wider for 2020. Dodge Dodge has officially confirmed that the Widebody treatment is coming to the Charger for the 2020 model year. Like its Challenger two-door coupe sibling, the Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack models will now sport some wider hips along with sharper reflexes. The new model development doesn’t come as much of a surprise, having been teased as a design concept earlier this year. That said, it doesn’t mean that this isn’t a very welcome development.Dodge’s Widebody rework on the Charger consists of redesigned fascias, integrated fender flares, side sills and a new rear spoiler. It all results in 3.5 inches of additional width compared to the standard Charger body. Besides yielding a more menacing appearance, the wider sheetmetal allows for the installation of wider wheels and tires, which in turn required rejiggering the suspension to up handling prowess. While all 2020 Charger Hellcats will be fitted with the broader bodywork, the Widebody treatment will be an option on the 2020 Charger Scat Pack. 60 Photos Share your voice 56 Photos Tags 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack Widebody: Angrier sedans Now playing: Watch this: 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody: More body and grip Dodge Dodgelast_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Uber Raises 12 Billion in Fresh Funding Firm Now Valued at 40

first_imgRide-sharing service firm Uber has raised  $1.2 billion in its latest round of funding. The firm is now valued at at $40 billion.The San Francisco-based firm made the announcement in a blog post and said that the funds will be used to make strategic investments in the Asia-Pacific region.Uber has been growing by leaps and bounds and currently operates in more than 250 cities across 50 countries, up from the 60 cities and 21 countries a year ago.The fresh flow of cash comes just six months after it raised $1.2 billion in investment funds.A year ago, Uber had raised $250 million through Google Ventures.Its $40 billion valuation allows it to sell about $1.8 billion in stock.The impressive figures show how Uber is still one of the most coveted tech start-ups as of today, despite a controversial reputation.Recently, Uber’s top management came under fire after it made hostile comments towards journalists.Rider privacy and driver compensation is also a disputable issue at Uber. But in the blog post, co-founder Travis Kalanick asserted that Uber was going to fix everything that went wrong in the recent past.Kalanick called the events “growing pains” and added that “acknowledging mistakes and learning from them are the first steps. We are collaborating across the company and seeking counsel from those who have gone through similar challenges to allow us to refine and change where needed.”Going forward, Uber will add several jobs in 2015 and aim to become a service that’s cheaper than owning a car.Uber’s fundraising announcement comes just a day after SoftBank invested $250 million in cab-hailing app GrabTaxi – a Southeast Asian taxi booking service, which also hopes to use the investment to expand business.Analysts say Uber has an edge over its competitors because of its reach and the type of technology services it offers. But many argue that the company uses cheap tricks to beat competition like hiring stealth riders and also giving burner phones to cancel rides of other services.So why are investors still opting to put their money in Uber?”They (investors) want somebody who’s going to go out there and fight for their money. They’re used to bad boys and that’s sometimes what it takes to get stuff done in business. They want a fierce competitor that operates within not necessarily the letter of the law, but the reality of what you can get away with in the law,” Greg Autry, a professor of Clinical Entrepreneurship at the University of Southern California explained to NPR.org.last_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Tsunami Alert Is Downgraded Along Alaskas Coast After Powerful Quake

first_imgU.S. Tsunami Warning SystemA map from the U.S. Tsunami Warning System shows the offshore location of a powerful earthquake that struck overnight, along with the revised tsunami advisory areaA powerful magnitude 7.9 earthquake struck off Alaska late Monday night, initially prompting a tsunami warning for a large section of the state’s coast and parts of Canada. As more data came in, the U.S. Tsunami Warning System downgraded the threat to an advisory for Alaska’s Chignik Bay.Several smaller aftershocks were also been felt after the quake, whose epicenter was located about 6 miles below the surface and 175 miles southeast of Kodiak, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.Warnings from the National Weather Service were pushed out to cellphones in Alaska warning “Emergency Alert. Tsunami danger on the coast. Go to high ground or move inland.”But as the effects of the quake became clear, those alerts were soon canceled.“The warning system reported several waves around the state of under a foot,” member station KTOO reports.In its initial response, the National Tsunami Warning Center at Palmer, Alaska, issued a tsunami warnings or watches for long swaths of the west coast of Canada and the U.S., from Alaska and British Columbia to parts of California. Public radio station KMXT in Kodiak issued this advisory over its airwaves: “This is a tsunami warning. this is not a drill.

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Happy Birthday Master John Simm

first_img Happy birthday, John Simm!Born in Leeds, the 47-year-old actor and musician made his professional debut in 1992 in an episode of BBC’s Rumpole of the Bailey.It wasn’t until three years later, though, that he broke out as troubled teenager Bill Preece in ITV police drama Cracker.The same year, Simm snagged his first feature role in Boston Kickout, beating Dennis Hopper to the Best Actor award at the Valencia Film Festival. In 1996, he made his professional stage entrance in Goldhawk Road in London.Working steadily through the ’90s, Simm earned accolades for performances in The Lakes, Human Traffic, and Wonderland.The new millennium brought parts in Miranda (alongside future War Doctor, the late John Hurt), 24 Hour Party People, State of Play, Sex Traffic, and Life on Mars (in which he plays a time-travelling police officer named after Doctor Who companion Rose Tyler).But despite a solid resume, Simm remains most famous for playing the Doctor’s greatest foil.John Simm is the Master (via BBC)Chosen by Russell T. Davies to play the nutty nemesis to David Tennant’s titular Time Lord, Simm appeared in the final three episodes of series three: Fatally wounded, the Master crawls into the Doctor’s TARDIS and regenerates into a younger body: John Simm.Transported back to Earth, he takes on the alias of “Harold Saxon”—Minister of Defense of Great Britain, and soon-to-be-elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.Simm reprised the role in 2009’s double-act special “The End of Time,” and later revealed that he’d “love the opportunity to play him [the Master] differently.”“I’d love to have another take on him, to be a bit quieter,” he told an audience at the 2012 Cheltenham Literature Festival.“I started annoying myself after a while,” he admitted of the cackling character. “Russell T. Davies had a specific idea of what he wanted him to be like. So I just had to do exactly what he wanted me to, and he wanted a giggling lunatic.”Viewers of season 10’s two-part finale know that Simm finally got his wish: Departing showrunner Steven Moffat wrote a more reserved, yet equally corrupt, version of the villain.Missy (Michelle Gomez) and the Master (John Simm) team up for destruction (via BBC)“I had the opportunity to play it differently,” Simm said in the most recent issue of Doctor Who Magazine.The actor was just as surprised as fans to see the male Master return.“I thought this ship had sailed. I really did,” he told DWM, adding that “I was very happy being David’s Master, and I really thought that was it [with] the whole changing of the guard. I thought, ‘Well, that’s my era over.’“So I was thrilled—I was really thrilled—to get to revisit a character 10 years on, especially such an iconic one,” Simm added.Don’t hold your breath, though, for a fourth turn as the Master, who was literally stabbed in the back by Missy (who, in turn, was shot in the back by the Master).Get your John Simm fix in two seasons of Shonda Rhimes’ thriller The Catch, and look for him in the upcoming TV mini-series Collateral, also starring Billie Piper (Rose Tyler).Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Physicists detect exotic looped trajectories of light in threeslit experiment

first_imgThe red path shows an exotic looped trajectory of light through a three-slit structure, which was observed for the first time in the new study. Credit: Magaña-Loaiza et al. Nature Communications Journal information: Nature Communications (Phys.org)—Physicists have performed a variation of the famous 200-year-old double-slit experiment that, for the first time, involves “exotic looped trajectories” of photons. These photons travel forward through one slit, then loop around and travel back through another slit, and then sometimes loop around again and travel forward through a third slit. Superposition revisited: Proposed resolution of double-slit experiment paradox using Feynman path integral formalism So far, all previous versions of the experiment have produced results that appear to be accurately described by the principle of superposition. This is because looped trajectories are so rare under normal conditions that their contribution to the overall interference pattern is typically negligible, and so applying the superposition principle to those cases results in a very good approximation. Straight trajectories (green) and exotic looped trajectories (red, dashed, dotted) of light, where the red cloud near the surface depicts the near fields, which increase the probability of photons to follow looped trajectories. The graphs at left show simulations (top) and experimental results (bottom) of the large difference in interference patterns created by illuminating only one slit being treated independently (gray line) and the actual coupled system (blue line). The remarkable difference between the gray and blue lines is caused by the looped trajectories. Credit: Magaña-Loaiza et al. Nature Communications Citation: Physicists detect exotic looped trajectories of light in three-slit experiment (2017, January 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-01-physicists-exotic-looped-trajectories-three-slit.html © 2017 Phys.org Explore further More information: Omar S. Magaña-Loaiza, Israel De Leon et al. “Exotic looped trajectories of photons in three-slit interference.” Nature Communications. DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13987 Interestingly, the contribution of these looped trajectories to the overall interference pattern leads to an apparent deviation from the usual form of the superposition principle. This apparent deviation can be understood as an incorrect application of the superposition principle—once the additional interference between looped and straight trajectories is accounted for, the superposition can be correctly applied.The team of physicists, led by Omar S. Magaña-Loaiza and Israel De Leon, has published a paper on the new experiment in a recent issue of Nature Communications. Loops of light”Our work is the first experimental observation of looped trajectories,” De Leon told Phys.org. “Looped trajectories are extremely difficult to detect because of their low probability of occurrence. Previously, researchers had suggested that these exotic trajectories could exist but failed to observe them.”To increase the probability of the occurrence of looped trajectories, the researchers designed a three-slit structure that supports surface plasmons, which the scientists describe as “strongly confined electromagnetic fields that can exist at the surface of metals.” The presence of these electromagnetic fields near the three slits increases the contribution of looped trajectories to the overall interference pattern by almost two orders of magnitude.”We provided a physical explanation that links the probability of these exotic trajectories to the near fields around the slits,” De Leon said. “As such, one can increase the strength of near fields around the slits to increase the probability of photons following looped trajectories.” Superposition principle accounting for looped trajectoriesThe new three-slit experiment with looped trajectories is just one of many variations of the original double-slit experiment, first performed by Thomas Young in 1801. Since then, researchers have been performing versions that use electrons, atoms, or molecules instead of photons.One of the reasons why the double-slit experiment has attracted so much attention is that it represents a physical manifestation of the principle of quantum superposition. The observation that individual particles can create an interference pattern implies that the particles must travel through both slits at the same time. This ability to occupy two places, or states, at once, is the defining feature of quantum superposition. It is when the contribution of the looped trajectories becomes non-negligible that it becomes apparent that the total interference is not simply the superposition of individual wavefunctions of photons with straight trajectories, and so the interference pattern is not correctly described by the usual form of the superposition principle. Magaña-Loaiza explained this apparent deviation in more detail:”The superposition principle is always valid—what is not valid is the inaccurate application of the superposition principle to a system with two or three slits,” he said.”For the past two centuries, scientists have assumed that one cannot observe interference if only one slit is illuminated in a two- or three-slit interferometer, and this is because this scenario represents the usual or typical case. “However, in our paper we demonstrate that this is true only if the probability of photons to follow looped trajectories is negligible. Surprisingly, interference fringes are formed when photons following looped trajectories interfere with photons following straight (direct) trajectories, even when only one of the three slits is illuminated. “The superposition principle can be applied to this surprising scenario by using the sum or ‘superposition’ of two wavefunctions; one describing a straight trajectory and the other describing looped trajectories. Not taking into account looped trajectories would represent an incorrect application of the superposition principle.”To some extent, this effect is strange because scientists know that Thomas Young observed interference when he illuminated both slits and not only one. This is true only if the probability of photons following looped trajectories is negligible.”In addition to impacting physicists’ understanding of the superposition principle as it is applied to these experiments, the results also reveal new properties of light that could have applications for quantum simulators and other technologies that rely on interference effects.”We believe that exotic looped paths can have important implications in the study of decoherence mechanisms in interferometry or to increase the complexity of certain protocols for quantum random walks, quantum simulators, and other algorithms used in quantum computation,” De Leon said.

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Steven Spielberg to Remake the Classic Musical West Side Story

first_imgThe 1961 film West Side Story, an adaptation of the 1957 Broadway play that was itself inspired by Romeo and Juliet, was such a sensation, winning 10 Academy Awards and going on to become a cherished classic, that it may have seemed that no one could possibly top it. Enter one Steven Spielberg.Next summer shooting begins on a new film version of West Side Story, directed by Spielberg, with a screenplay written by Tony Kushner (Angels in America, Lincoln).Steven Spielberg speaking at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con International in San Diego. Photo by Gage Skidmore CC BY-SA 3.0The bar it needs to top is very high. The 1961 version is the biggest Oscar-winning musical of all time.The leads of the original film were Natalie Wood, at the height of her ingenue fame, as Maria and Richard Beymer as Tony, star-crossed lovers.This film will use the Arthur Laurents songs but obviously won’t have choreography by Jerome Robbins, who creating dance numbers for cast members playing the Sharks and the Jets, as well as superb individual dances by Rita Moreno, George Chakiris, and Russ Tamblyn.Russ TamblynBut there were some aspects to the film that some found unfortunate, even then and definitely today.One was obvious dubbing of songs and the other was casting actors who were not Hispanic to play Puerto Ricans.Natalie Wood was dubbed by Marni Nixon in her singing and wore makeup to appear Latina–her accent was considered a bit shaky.Photo publicity still of Natalie Wood.There have been casting calls all over America this year to fill the roles, including in Orlando.In the casting call issued recently in New York City, Spielberg’s production company made it clear that people won’t be pretending their ethnicity this time around. The call stipulates auditionees should be between 15 and 25 years old with a strong dance background and ability to sing, and also specifies: “the Sharks are Latinx, the Jets are Caucasian.”Furthermore, it specified: “Maria and Anita are Latina. Bernardo is Latino. Tony & Riff are Caucasian.”Russ Tamblyn, wearing yellow jacket as Riff, leader of the Jets, with other gang members in exuberant dance on busy street in scene from ‘West Side Story.’ (Photo by Gjon Mili/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images)On October 1, 2018, it was announced that Ansel Elgort will play Tony, the American ex-gang member who falls in love with Maria, the sheltered younger sister of Bernardo, a Puerto Rican gang leader. Elgort starred in The Fault in Our Stars and Baby Driver.Elgort is not known for his singing or dancing. However, as Deadline pointed out, Elgort “attended Manhattan’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, where he performed in various musicals. The performing arts-focused school, made famous in Fame, is located around Lincoln Square — the arts district built on the demolished tenement neighborhood that was, indeed, the West Side in West Side Story.”George Chakiris (center) dancing in the street in a publicity image issued for ‘West Side Story’. The musical, directed by Jerome Robbins (1918-1998) and Robert Wise (1914-2005), starred Chakiris as ‘Bernardo Nunez’. (Photo by Silver Screen Collection/Getty Images)No other lead roles have been made public. But also announced: Justin Peck, who choreographed this year’s Broadway revival of Carousel and won a Tony Award, will choreograph the film.Media reports say West Side Story has been a passion project of Spielberg’s for years.In a 2014 interview on Good Morning America, the director said, “Well, you know something, West Side Story is one of my favorite Broadway musicals and one of the greatest pieces of musical literature, my goodness, one of the greatest scores and [it has] some of the greatest lyrics ever written for a musical, so just let me put it this way: it’s on my mind.”Twentieth Century Fox owned the rights to the film.In 2014, Screen Rant reported: “Although West Side Story is considered one of film’s sacred cows – a classic with little chance of remake approval – Fox would apparently be willing to acquiesce to such a proposal if Spielberg directs.”Read another story from us: Mel Gibson to Remake Controversial 1969 Western ‘The Wild Bunch’The 1961 film was made at a time when many actors had their singing dubbed, but even so, West Side Story goes quite far. Nixon dubbed not only Wood but some of Rita Moreno’s songs. George Chakiris was the only one out of the main characters to not be dubbed and this was probably because he had no hard solo songs to sing.last_img read more

Category: qhxhixfebysvahcd Walmart plans to pilot test the new Tesla Semi

first_imgWalmart says that it intends to be among the first companies to pilot Tesla’s new all-electric Semi heavy-duty truck. The retailer told CNBC that it’s “excited to be among the first” to test the new vehicle, and to see how it might help them achieve “long-term sustainability goals” including decreasing their overall emissions footprint.The retailer will pilot the Tesla Semi across both U.S. and Canada, the company says. Walmart operates around 6,000 of its own trucks currently to transfer stock from distribution centers to its stores.This is a sign of how the Tesla Semi could make a bigger impact than many might suspect on the trucking industry. Cost of vehicle is definitely a consideration, and Tesla hasn’t said much about what the trucks will retail for once available, but cost of operation is something they addressed, saying it’s below that of diesel Class 8 heavy duty vehicles.But Walmart’s statement reveals yet another key selling point: Tesla’s Semi can help with corporate sustainability efforts, and companies all over the world have committed to reducing emissions and lowering their ecological impact, whether due to internal targets and image considerations, or requirements from regulators and governing bodies.The Tesla Semi checks a lot of boxes in terms of addressing bottom line considerations, offering 500 miles of range to avoid too much compromise vs. diesel truck travel capability, and providing a way for a company to decrease its net CO2 emissions without having to undertake expensive endeavors like sponsoring the construction of renewable power plants.This is also the first sign that Tesla’s Semi announcement isn’t just a flashy stage show: A pilot partner eager to talk about actually using the trucks immediately shows there’s some some fire behind the smoke.last_img read more
