Young women studying computer science were introduced to a group of potential role models as part of a weekend conference at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).The event, organized by Harvard Women in Computer Science, drew some of the most successful women in the field, along with sponsors such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. It included keynote speeches from entrepreneurs and senior executives, mentoring lunches, and an eight-hour “hackathon” Sunday at the Harvard Innovation Lab. Students from 40 U.S. colleges and universities were in attendance.“When I was growing up, I thought the gender war was over and women had won. But it’s still not over,” said Amy Yin ’14, co-founder of Harvard Women in Computer Science.“The biases may be more subtle now, but the statistics are not. When I interned at Facebook last summer, I was the only woman on a team of 12,” added Yin, who is concentrating in computer science. “There’s a saying that ‘If you can’t see it, you can’t be it,’ which is why we wanted to develop a community of women in computer science.”The first keynote speaker was Rebecca Parsons, chief technology officer at ThoughtWorks, a Chicago-based software design firm. “Women bring a different perspective to solving problems,” said Parsons, who noted remarkable progress toward inclusiveness in her three decades in the field — which wasn’t to say the work is over.“I was told when I was in school that women were incapable of understanding math and science,” she said. “Today, saying something like that simply isn’t socially acceptable.“The biggest challenge now is that people may not fully recognize the kinds of subtle biases that still exist. When hiring, for example, people tend to look for someone like them, people they’re comfortable with.” This works against women. “If we can make talking about bias less charged, we’ll be much better off.”Margo I. Seltzer, the Herchel Smith Professor of Computer Science at SEAS, offered a similar viewpoint. “Underrepresentation leads to continued underrepresentation,” she said. “We all need to work toward making our workplaces and communities more welcoming.”Still, Seltzer has seen big advances at Harvard, where 28 percent of current computer science concentrators are women (the national average is 20 percent). “We’re delighted to see increased participation by women in our courses and concentration. I don’t think the problem is solved, but the messaging that all are welcome does seem to be helping.”Yin believes that eradicating cultural stereotypes about women and technology is a key part of the equation. “Harvard is doing a lot to encourage women to get into technology, and to be more technical in general,” she said. “It’s great, because a lot of women think you can’t be social if you’re in computer science, that people will stigmatize you as a nerd, that guys will be intimidated by you, that you won’t find a boyfriend or a husband.”And men need to be part of the solution, too, she said: “We’re about to start an ‘allies’ program based on what Harvard Business School has done. We want to get men involved in discussing their perceptions about women in computer science. We need to talk about gender-related problems, like why only 7 percent of venture capitalists are women and how this impacts what companies get funded.”David C. Parkes, the George F. Colony Professor of Computer Science and area dean for computer science, is focused on the work ahead: “We’ve managed to close the gender gap a bit, but I think I speak for all my colleagues when I say that we won’t be happy until” the gap is gone.Parkes, who helped judge the hackathon, pointed to the growing number of women in Harvard’s introductory programming course, CS 50. Women filled 37 percent of the seats in CS 50 this year — an all-time high. “Our target for the entire concentration must be 50 percent,” he said.Bringing more women to engineering and computer science is a priority for Dean Cherry A. Murray of SEAS. “We are creating a curriculum that is encouraging and embracing people from diverse backgrounds, rather than the traditional engineering school’s ‘weeding out’ atmosphere,” said Murray, who is also the John A. and Elizabeth S. Armstrong Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a professor of physics. “We have seen an increase of over a factor of two in the percentage of women concentrating in computer science in the last five years, which I celebrate, but we’re aiming higher — to complete parity — because we want the very best minds coming into the field.”Stanford computer science graduate Kimber Lockhart delivered the second keynote speech Saturday at the Science Center. Increo Solutions, Lockhart’s start-up firm, was acquired in 2009 by Box, a Silicon Valley company with a valuation of more than $1 billion. Just six years out of college, she is now senior vice president at Box, where she leads software engineering teams.“I hope many of you become software engineers because you want to change the world that way,” Lockhart said. “I am sometimes unable to build diverse teams because of so many women opting out” of software engineering. When Lockhart asked who in the packed house was interested in launching a start-up, about half the audience raised their hands.A young woman asked Lockhart how to overcome the “impostor syndrome,” an internalized feeling that women simply don’t belong in tech. Lockhart acknowledged its existence, but added, “You need to make decisions as if it weren’t there,” because “once you get in the door, you’ll be able to learn” everything you need.
Students reflect on the shift to online classes and unplanned move home “We talked with many friends and classmates who felt like so many changes were happening to us and that others were making significant decisions affecting our lives. That often happens in times of crisis, and we wanted to empower more students to respond and act. Students are very good at identifying needs and gaps, and we wanted to give them a platform to connect with others to innovate solutions,” said Gwendolyn Lee, who’s studying health policy at Harvard Kennedy School while also pursuing a medical degree at UCLA. Allie Lee is earning a master’s degree in epidemiology at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health.Even as the group confronts the immediate COVID-19 crisis, Gwendolyn Lee said it’s also building institutional knowledge so that it’s better prepared for future disease outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics.“More fundamentally, we would like to work toward building a model of prevention,” she said. “Students vs. Pandemics hopes to advocate for and help achieve preventive behavior so we won’t find ourselves in a situation like the one we face today.”Coming togetherIn times of struggle, many take comfort and refuge in religious and spiritual gatherings. With that currently out of the question, some religious groups at Harvard Divinity School (HDS) are considering alternatives. The HDS Disciples and United Church of Christ Worship have begun shifting the weekly worship services and prayer times online, connecting everyone via Zoom. The first online service begins today.Early last week, HDS students began contributing inspirational posts to the Office of the Chaplain and Religious and Spiritual Life’s Facebook page and Instagram accounts. So far, the posts have drawn on a variety of texts, from the Bible to Harry Potter.Design for living apartHarvard’s move to online teaching and learning presents challenges for disciplines where the work is almost entirely physical and doesn’t easily translate to 2D formats such as video — at least not without sacrificing essential components of the work.At Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Dean Sarah Whiting and the faculty have been taking advantage of the popular Zoom platform’s draw-over and annotation tools, particularly for “crits,” the one-on-one sessions in which a professor reviews and critiques individual student work, said GSD spokesman Travis Dagenais. Rather than hanging project renderings on the usual pin-up boards, they’re turning unused laptops into digital pinboards so professors can review the work on one screen while conducting the crit on another. “I was just so impressed that even though all of their lives were sort of cast into chaos … they still were really committed to building community and finding ways to continue to connect GSAS students.” — Jacqueline Yun, executive director, GSAS Student Center ‘Unsteady,’ ‘lucky,’ and ‘overwhelmed’ The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. The School is still determining how faculty juries will conduct final reviews, which typically involve models, large drawings, and other physical elements, without being able to see these components in real life.For those already tired of looking at home-office backdrops on Zoom, or who just want things to go back to “normal” even for a few minutes, a cheeky pair of Master’s in Design Studies students have created an assortment of colorful Zoom backgrounds from spaces in and around Gund Hall. The backgrounds have become a minor hit with students and even a dean or two.One unexpected positive is that prior to the campus closure, GSD offered only one online course, the popular “The Architectural Imagination” on edX. Now, suddenly there are dozens of GSD courses going online, adapted and produced in short order and being tweaked in an ongoing manner. It’s been a tall order. “That contrast in number and scope illustrates our challenge as designers: Design pedagogy is uniquely difficult to conduct in a purely digital format, and this shift has been nothing shy of fundamental for us,” said Dagenais.Festivities from afarFor fourth-year students at Harvard Medical School (HMS), the third Friday in March is a date they have dreamed about and worked toward for many years. On Match Day, the National Resident Matching Program notifies graduating seniors at medical schools across the country where they will serve their clinical residencies. At Harvard, the milestone usually takes place in the atrium of the Tosteson Medical Education Center at HMS, with students and their loved ones gathered, waiting for the dean of students’ traditional bell ringing at noon that kicks off the envelope-tearing, excited squeals, and hugs. This year, the matches will arrive via email, and Dean Fidencio Saldaña’s bell will be livestreamed to the approximately 165 seniors. The School has set up a social media account so students can share their celebrations, but from a safe distance. Medical School academic, research community responds to COVID-19 pandemic Harvard’s Lipsitch urges public to ramp up social distancing, increase coronavirus tests As everywhere else, Harvard’s graduate and professional Schools have had to adjust quickly to the new realities brought on by the rising coronavirus pandemic, halting normal operations, shifting to remote learning, and creating systems that serve their own unique needs and teaching missions.Supplementing the University’s dedicated COVID-19 information website, the dozen Schools have created special sections on their own sites to communicate regularly with students, faculty, and staff about the latest announcements from deans and other senior administrators, provide links to the rapidly changing public health news and safety guidelines, and offering detailed information about the resources and forms of assistance available to members of the Harvard community.Some Schools, such as the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Harvard Business School, are drawing on their expertise to gather COVID-19-focused faculty research and advice on their areas of health, K-12 education, and business to satisfy a voracious, fact-starved public. Other Schools are grappling with ways to continue critical services that aren’t so easily shuffled online. Here are some of the key shifts underway.Clinical training impactsDelivering vital medical and legal services to those who need them and providing students with essential, hands-on training are important, enriching aspects of the professional education at Harvard Medical School (HMS), Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HDSM), and Harvard Law School (HLS).But as School leaders grapple with federal, state, and local guidelines covering how best to protect students, faculty, and staff in high-risk settings or where close contact with others is unavoidable, clinical work for HMS and HDSM students has been temporarily halted or radically scaled back.Clinical rotations at Harvard’s teaching hospitals — including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Cambridge Health Alliance — were paused through Sunday, and may be delayed longer. The move is temporary, an HMS spokeswoman stressed, but will be long enough “to give the hospitals and the clinical faculty administrators time to devise a plan for the students where they can continue to train but won’t be involved dealing with COVID patients.”On March 16, the Dental School halted all clinical services except dental emergencies for existing patients “until further notice,” said German Gallucci, Raymond J. and Elva Pomfret Nagle Associate Professor of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences and executive director of the Harvard Dental Center. The number of faculty, staff, and students handling emergency services has been cut back, with very few students assigned to the ER. The hiatus has dramatically reduced the clinic caseload, which had been logging 45,000 visits a year but has gone from seeing 200 patients a day down to just five for urgent care.,The scale-back will protect students, faculty and staff from exposure, while keeping emergency dental treatment going to ease the expected strain on hospitals and the health system in the coming weeks.Gallucci said that, given the pandemic’s many unknowns, he concurred with his colleague Jennifer Gibbs, director of the Division of Endodontics, who predicted, “This could be our new normal for an extended period of time.” Even when the spread of the coronavirus is under control, she said, people in dental medicine “will have to learn how to practice with this disease among us.”At the Law School, meanwhile, 44 clinics and student practice organizations continue to serve clients and work on cases, said Lisa Dealy, assistant dean for clinical and pro bono programs. The state trial courts have barred all in-person hearings and will take only emergency cases during the outbreak.Let’s keep in touch — no, reallyIn normal times, students at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) don’t have much chance to meet up what with research, teaching, studying and family obligations. So the GSAS Student Center, formerly known as Dudley House, has served as a vital social hub, hosting parties, offering arts and cultural programming, and sponsoring outdoor, athletic, and other activities to get students out of their academic bubbles and interact with students from other disciplines.After the University shift to digital learning, the 25 Ph.D. student fellows who host interactive events moved quickly to ensure that social distancing wouldn’t erode the grad students’ sense of community. Using Engage, a social engagement platform also used by the College, center fellows have begun ramping up a slate of options to gather virtually, including a weekly knitting and crochet circle, a photography workshop, and virtual exercise classes.“I was just so impressed that even though all of their lives were sort of cast into chaos in terms of moving and heading home and … maybe moving to new residence halls, they still were really committed to building community and finding ways to continue to connect GSAS students,” said Jacqueline Yun, executive director of the center.Sarah Kozel and Etha Williams, third- and sixth-year doctoral students studying historical musicology in the Music Department, decided to launch a podcast, “Distant Socialing,” after the campus closure put an end to a tongue-in-cheek “conceptual podcast” they had held over meals in the Commons dining hall, where they would discuss and rate the food and chat with whomever joined them.,“When the coronavirus crisis hit, we started trying to think about ways to maintain closeness and community amidst growing physical distance — both small-scale (social distancing and campus closures in Cambridge) and large-scale (as Sarah returned to Canada while I stayed in Cambridge),” Williams said via email. “We thought that making our conceptual podcast a ‘real’ podcast could be one way to do this.”In addition to their usual humor, the pair discuss the psychological aspects of coping with the pandemic and share some tips they learned in a Harvard University Health Services workshop, “Managing Emotions.”“I just love this because it’s so good for mental health and well-being,” Yun said of the fellows’ latest effort. “It’s hard enough to be a Ph.D. student; it is so incredibly isolating and our population has a tendency to isolate because the work that they’re doing is asking the big questions in lonely libraries. So I’m just so grateful that our students are trending forward trying to say, ‘We need to stay connected to each other during this time.’”Students vs. PandemicsWith so many feeling overwhelmed by the abrupt changes and confused by the rapid pace of information coming at them from so many disparate sources about the COVID-19 pandemic or where to find help for difficulties, graduate students Gwendolyn Lee, M.D./M.P.P. ’20, and her sister, Alexandria “Allie” Lee, M.S. ’20, thought students could use a central repository to find and share the most accurate, useful information and more easily communicate with each other. Ideally, they hoped this would empower students to take action to begin solving the many challenges of the current public health crisis.On March 13, the student-run group Students vs. Pandemics created a Google Sheet with sections on how to stay healthy, where to find resources, ideas for having fun or bringing about systemic change, and complain + fix, where problems are identified, and then go about trying to fix them. Students are encouraged to add ideas and share information on the spreadsheet. So far, more than 30 students have contributed, and they’re hoping to recruit others. Ideas include starting a COVID-19 hackathon for students to identify digital solutions, drafting policy memos to send to the Massachusetts Legislature, and helping other universities launch similar task forces. ‘Worry about 4 weeks from now,’ epidemiologist warns Officials detail University’s battle plan to combat coronavirus while education continues Q&A on Harvard’s move to online learning Homeward bound Related

Placing on the Peace Corps’ list of top universities nationwide for the 12th straight year, Notre Dame has established a tradition of expanding learning beyond the classroom. Notre Dame ranked 10th on the Peace Corps’ list of Medium Colleges and Universities to produce the most Peace Corps volunteers in 2011. According to a recent Notre Dame press release, 35 alumni currently serve in the Peace Corps around the world. Among that list is 2010 Notre Dame alumna Meghan Costello, who has spent the past 16 months in Rwanda. Costello said her primary role in Rwanda is teaching English, yet her mission goes far beyond teaching itself. “Peace Corps is different from other organizations because it is so much more than the primary assignment,” she said. “It’s about integration into a community, learning about another culture and spreading American culture. Through these steps, you can find other ways to be useful in the community.” The prospect of joining the Peace Corps was something that Costello said she had always considered, and after joining, it became the perfect fit for her. “I think Peace Corps was always in my head, a little thing inside that I always wanted, but didn’t think I would ever actually experience,” she said. “When it became a part of my reality, I had the support of all my family and friends. It felt so right.” The atmosphere and the people of Notre Dame are what motivated Costello to join the Peace Corps, she said. In addition, a study abroad trip to Rome helped her realize a passion for applying her education outside of the classroom. “Studying abroad in Rome certainly helped in my desire to experience other cultures,” she said. “I wanted to understand what I was reading in class and to experience the reality of these situations, whatever the reality was.” Although Costello said life in Rwanda can be difficult and lonely at times, she finds comfort in her tasks and responsibilities. “The highlights always come with good work,” she said. “I have recently been plunging into projects in my community, and they bring me joy the kind of joy that comes after finishing a tough paper or a long run.” However, Costello said it is difficult for her to express in words how her time in Rwanda has been because she has yet to fully understand it herself. “My experience in Rwanda is impossible to describe,” she said. “It’s everything that you’d picture it would be ¾enlightening, challenging, life-changing, difficult, rewarding … it’s all those things, but different than you could ever imagine.” Looking toward the future, Costello said she is unsure of what her plans are, but her experience in the Peace Corps has broadened her perception of what careers are available in the business world. “I am meeting fascinating people all the time here, and so many are doing great work,” she said. “There are so many cool jobs out there, and I want them all. We will have to see what life has in store for me.”

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:1.5 cents per kilowatt-hour. That’s how much NextEra Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jim Ketchum estimates that batteries will add to the cost of solar and wind projects that the company has built over the last six to 12-months, as revealed in the company’s results call yesterday.But that’s not all. Ketchum further added that he expects this cost to fall to around half a cent per kilowatt-hour in the middle of the next decade. “Early in the next decade, mid-next decade, it’s going to probably be about $0.005 a kilowatt hour add, maybe $0.01, but probably closer to about $0.005. And so if we find ourselves in a marketplace where we are selling wind right around $0.02, I mean, a combined wind and solar product probably looks roughly around $0.025. Solar, into the next decade, probably looks more like a $0.03 product, sub-$0.03 in some markets. You add half a penny on that on the high end, you’re probably at about $ 0.035 a kilowatt hour.”NextEra CEO Jim Robo added to this, noting that batteries are allowing the company to provide “firm” power. “We’re right at the beginning of, I think, a real revolution in this country in terms of how electricity is – how storage interacts with electricity on the grid, and how we’re going to start delivering much different, firm, renewable products to our customers going forward,” stated Robo on the results call.CFO Ketchum elaborated on that statement, noting that the economics of wind and solar are going to allow these resources to out-compete existing conventional power plants – and potentially knock them off the grid. “As battery cost declines and efficiency gains are realized during the four-year start of construction period, we continue to expect that in the next decade new nearly firm wind and solar, without incentives, will be cheaper than the operating costs of traditional inefficient generation resources, creating significant opportunities for new renewables growth going forward.”These confident statements about the costs and abilities of solar and wind plus storage come as the company has reached a record backlog of 7.4 GW of solar, wind and energy storage projects. This includes nearly 2 GW of solar projects that the company has contracted to put online through 2020. During the quarter NextEra added 692 MW of solar projects and 90 MW of battery storage to its backlog.The large majority of this, at 1.48 GW of solar and 75 MW of battery storage, is planned for the 2019-2020 timeframe, however NextEra is also planning projects after 2020, and notes that the new IRS guidelines on the beginning of construction allow the company to claim the full 30% Investment Tax Credit for projects that it puts online as late as 2023, as long as they have started construction in 2019.More: NextEra expects storage to add half a cent to solar in mid-2020’s NextEra CFO: Battery storage is starting a ‘real revolution’ in electric industry

Let’s imagine for a moment that you’ve been asked to lead a group of settlers. Your team will be traveling through uncharted territory and will begin in Fresno, Calif., and head east. The goal is to reach Santa Fe, N.M., where the group plans to build a home. There has never been a group attempt to reach Santa Fe from the west. What should you do at this point? You could:accept the risk and begin the journey without knowing what lies ahead;mitigate the risk by sending a scout team ahead to inform you of any obstacles;transfer the risk by contracting experienced guides to help lead the group; oravoid the risk and refuse to lead the group.In this case, let’s assume you’ve decided to accept the leadership role and forge ahead and mitigate the risk. A scout team is moving ahead of the group. Runners are relaying messages back to the group leader. The group has been traveling for several days through the desert and conditions are beginning to improve. The group is anxious to hear what the runners have to say.

However, Mexico’s death rate compared to cases is much higher.It recorded almost 2,800 new cases on Monday taking its total over 93,000.”Today we began production activities related to the automotive industry, mining and the construction industry,” President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said earlier on Monday. “We have to move towards the new normal because it’s necessary for our national economy, our people’s wellbeing; we need to, little by little, return production, economic, social and cultural activity to normal.” Mexico’s tally of confirmed COVID-19 deaths passed 10,000 on Monday, the health secretary said, following an increase of 237 on the previous day.News of the updated toll — now 10,167 — came as Mexico announced it was gradually reopening its economy by reactivating its automotive, mining and construction sectors.Mexico is second only to Brazil in Latin America for COVID-19 deaths, although the South American giant has had close to three times as many. Topics : Mexico shut down all but necessary economic activity on March 23, after Lopez Obrador had come under intense criticism and bucked the regional trend by resisting calls to impose a lockdown much earlier.On a visit to Quintana Roo state, where the popular Cancun seaside resort is located, Lopez Obrador also said tourism activity would be reopened from next week.
312 Manly Road, Manly WestSAVVY investors might want to look away from the inner city and towards the outer suburbs for strong property growth according to research from LocationScore.com.au.The property research site crunched the numbers across Brisbane’s suburbs and found that demand was strongest in a number of outer suburbs in 2017.Director of research Jeremy Sheppard said the company examined eight key indicators for demand over 12 months to find what suburbs were likely to grow. The top five high performing suburbs were within 10 to 20 kilometres from the CBD, eschewing conventional wisdom that closer to the city was better for price growth. “The reason that there is an increase in demand could be to do with infrastructure or it could be affordability,” Mr Sheppard said. “People could be priced out of the rest of the city so you can find that these affordable suburbs are getting a lot more interest.”To measure demand he included data such as days on market and vendor discounts, as well as less obvious measures like the numbers of online views on property websites like realestate.com.au.Across Brisbane units in Alexandra Hills, Manly West, Carseldine and Sunnybank Hills scored highly in demand. These units at Dorville Road in Carseldine could be set for an increase in value.This high demand for units in these suburbs was in stark contrast to the oversupply of units in the inner city, where oversupply and high vacancy rates have continued to cause a headache for investors.

Bruce McIntyre at Ray White Coorparoo said the strong demand for units in Many West was mainly being driven by owner occupiers rather than investors. “A lot of young families are moving in,” Mr McIntyre said. Before buying up in the in these suburbs Mr Sheppard recommended potential investors check to see if many new housing developments were likely to be approved.“The last thing you want to do is invest in a market that is great right now that might have an oversupply in a few years,” he said.Brisbane’s most in demand suburbs.Manly West, Units, Location Score 74/100Sunnybank Hills, Units, Location Score 70/100Alexandra Hills, Units, Location Score 69/100Carseldine, Units, Location Score 69/100Kenmore Hills, Houses, Location Score 66/100

RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Tino Anjorin has agreed a new long-term deal to keep him at Chelsea until 2025, but it will not be signed until the country’s coronavirus lockdown is lifted. The 18-year-old winger made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the 4-0 rout of Everton, the final Premier League game before the season was halted. That vote of confidence from Frank Lampard was a significant boost and talks over personal terms had progressed in the past couple of weeks. Anjorin, who has just over a year remaining on his current deal, will be the ninth academy player to agree new terms this season. First-team regulars Mason Mount, Reece James, Fikayo Tomori and the fit-again Ruben Loftus-Cheek have all agreed extensions on top of recent debutants Billy Gilmour, Ian Maatsen, Armando Broja and third-choice goalkeeper Jamie Cumming. Leading goalscorer Tammy Abraham remains in talks over a new deal that has dragged on for several months, while the club remain engaged in negotiations with a number of other players. Willian, Pedro, Willy Caballero and Olivier Giroud are all out of contract at the end of June.Tags: CoronavirusEvertonFikayo TomoriFrank LampardTino Anjorin
It was close most of the way, but the Hornets, with one goal in each half, beat the Warriors 2-0, overcoming Dan Scaheber’s seven saves by having Corey Gallagher and Nino Pagano each finding the net.The C-NS girls will make up that trip to Baldwinsville on Oct. 18. In the meantime, it would travel to state Class B no. 6-ranked Marcellus last Thursday night, where it could not break through in a 2-0 defeat to the Mustangs.C-NS had all kinds of chances throughout the cold, wet evening, but the Marcellus defense turned them all back as Mustangs goalie Ellie Shaw stopped all 10 Northstars shots she faced.Marcellus took the lead less than seven minutes into the gam. Katie, MacLachlan’s corner kick was passed to Hannah Durand, whose great pass set up LaMarre for a go-ahead goal.Then Sara Mielnicki, with a superb spin move, flashed open and put in the second goal later in the half. To its credit, the Northstars did blank the Mustangs the rest of the way as Avery Byrnes finished with eight saves.Back on Wednesday night, the Liverpool girls soccer team ventured to West Genesee, and it was close for a while – but a big second half left the Warriors on the wrong side of a 6-1 decision.During the first half, Liverpool did enough to keep the game 1-0, and Caroline Stevens got a late goal – but that happened as WG was burning the Warriors for five tallies, with Marlee Pontello (two goals) and Emma Nelson (one goal, one assist) leading them.Back in action on Saturday afternoon, Liverpool took a 3-0 defeat to Rome Free Academy, who got away in the second half as Jamie Fleck led them with one goal and one assist. Tags: C-NSliverpoolsoccer Having lost to Henninger 1-0 on Sept. 12, the Northstars would have to work all 80 minutes to turn back the Black Knights’ challenge as, once again Jawadshah Kasimi led C-NS by earning one goal and one assist.Goals also went to Anthony Cimino and Tyler Murray, with Joe Barraco and Cole Rockwell earning assists. Henninger lost despite goals by Whoo Pla and Excellent Bienvenu.Liverpool’s boys would be home Thursday to face a Fayetteville-Manlius side that saw its showdown with Baldwinsville cut short in the second half with the score 2-2 due to that same weather that kept the Warriors from facing West Genesee. For the first time all season, the vagaries of Central New York fall weather affected the schedules of soccer teams from both Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool.Both the girls soccer game between the Northstars and state Class AA no. 11-ranked Baldwinsville, along with the boys soccer game involving the Warriors and West Genesee, got postponed by rain and lightning.The C-NS boys also had its game with Nottingham postponed, but returned to action two nights later against Henninger and worked its way to a 3-2 victory over the Black Knights.

The USC men’s basketball team lost its fourth consecutive game on Sunday, falling to the Stanford Cardinal (17-8, 7-6) 59-47. USC’s defeat was their 20th of the season, the first time the Trojans have lost at least 20 games since 1989, when they finished 10-22.For the second time in four days, the Trojans (6-20, 1-12) played a competitive first 20 minutes but were unable to keep up with their opponents in the second half.USC trailed 20-18 going into the break after forcing 10 turnovers and holding Stanford to an 8-24 shooting performance. But the Trojans didn’t fare any better, shooting 7-24 (29 percent) in the first half and 15-48 (31 percent) for the game. They were outscored 39-29 in the second half of play.“We played pretty hard, but when you’re not making, you’re not making,” USC coach Kevin O’Neill said. “When you force 18 turnovers and basically hold them to 40 percent shooting, that’s enough to win only if you score.”USC received 13 points apiece from junior guard Greg Allen and freshman forward Byron Wesley. Wesley, however, was just 1-6 from the floor after pacing the Trojans with 10 early points.“They made defensive changes,” Wesley said. “They switched to zone in the second half. That slowed me down a bit.”USC’s leading scorer of the season, sophomore guard Maurice Jones, struggled offensively, finishing 2-14 and 6-7 at the free throw line en route to 10 points.“Mo’s shots when he’s at the point are not nearly as good of shots for him when he’s off the ball,” O’Neill said. “He had a lot of wide-open looks that didn’t go down. The guy’s got to be fatigued, let’s face it, playing that amount of minutes all year long as a sophomore.”Stanford was led by freshman guard Chasson Randle’s 16 points, while senior forward Josh Owens added 15 points and five rebounds of his own. Coach Johnny Dawkins utilized his entire roster on Sunday, as Owens was the only Cardinal player on the court for more than 30 minutes.USC, meanwhile, had six players with at least 20 minutes of playing time, a point O’Neill made after the game.“Every one of these guys is playing too many minutes,” O’Neill said. “They’re doing as well as they can.”The Trojans have two days to prepare for their cross-town rivals, the UCLA Bruins, whom they will face Wednesday night at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The Bruins (14-11, 7-6) lost their previous game on Feb. 11 to the Cal Golden Bears, 73-63.Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Prime Ticket.

We will be displaying the casino games we have near completion along with our RGS. We will focus on two main games, CrypBattle and Suzu She Ninja which are games with licensed IP and one of our own creations, respectively. Licence applications in both Malta and UK are nearing completion in order that we are able to serve many clients from all over the globe. Whilst our games have a truly authentic Japanese look and feel we believe are games will be successful in all markets.SBC: What do you think will be the industry buzzword this year and why?I am not a fan of ‘buzzwords’. There is always too much focus on such terms without any understanding of what is trying to be achieved. Last year the buzzword seemed to be ‘disruptive’, but anyone trying to be ‘disruptive’ without giving the customer a product they understand to begin with lead to failure. We are trying to be different with our range of products but we understand we need to do this by education and gradual diversification which is what we wl do delivering traditional slot games with our look and feel before moving to other forms of gambling games.SBC: Which new technology, service or consumer trend will have the biggest impact on the igaming industry this year?Technology in the industry is still behind in general, what we want to do is try and deliver our content and additional services through one simple integration. Our focus is on delivering a balanced mix of mobile and desktop games. The main frustration still lies with the telecoms in that connectivity remains a problem, for on the move end users, If this is addressed then everyone will capitalise.SBC: Why have you chosen to begin 2017 by sponsoring the London Baby Party?We wanted a balanced mix of C-level and Managers in a relaxed atmosphere. A location in Central London which is accessible for all but away from the melee of Excel. Blah blah blahSBC: Finally, where can people expect to find you at ICE?We will be very visible at ICE with our Welcome Towels at registration for people to wipe of that travel grime for the journey in. We will have a large stand at S2-325 which will include a sake and beer bar, a sushi bar, a DJ and meeting rooms. Of course our games will be on display. In addition we will have characters from our games dressed up moving around the exhibition halls_____________________Richard Hogg – Ganapati

“The intensity that the Lakers came out with in the second period after we had a pretty good first period, that is playoff physicality, that is playoff defense, and offensively we didn’t respond to that,” Brown said before adding a graphic description of the Sixers’ play.Sixers’ Brett Brown after losing to both Clippers & Lakers in LA: “Sadistically, we love it. You want to figure out what life is like in the playoffs? Do what we just did. … That’s playoff intensity & we didn’t respond. We got stood up, bent over, we threw things away.” pic.twitter.com/6iBRpR0S9y— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) March 4, 2020Brown left out the fact that the team played short-handed both nights. Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back) were out for the two games and Josh Richardson (concussion) did not play Tuesday. A six-point loss to the Clippers and a bad quarter against the Lakers aren’t the worst results, then.Brown also has the luxury of letting losses become teaching moments. Philadelphia (37-25) is sixth in the East but leads the seventh-place Nets, who won’t have Kyrie Irving the remainder of the season, by nine games. The Sixers are 2 1/2 games behind the Heat for the fourth seed and home-court advantage in the first round. They are 28-2 at Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers lost twice in three days at Staples Center this week. The Clippers did the deed Sunday and the Lakers followed up Tuesday.For Philly coach Brett Brown, the sweep wasn’t all bad, for one interesting reason. AI MEMORIES: Antonio Daniels explains being dropped by Iverson crossover Brown told reporters after the Sixers’ 120-107 loss to the Lakers that facing two of the top teams in the West late in the season was like playoff basketball, something Philly is on track to experience this season.”Sadistically, we love it, like, really,” he said. “You really . . . want to figure out what life looks like in the playoffs? Do what we just did: go play the Clippers on the road, go play the Lakers on the road, and I like it, because it’s real.”The Lakers put away the Sixers in the second quarter Tuesday, outscoring them 37-19 in the period to take an 11-point halftime lead. LA never trailed again after going ahead in the first half.

* Update: Fire crews have successfully put-out the small blaze at the Pryndik Bit & Supply Store on Friday. Fire Chief Fred Burrows says the fire was likely caused by a spark from the chimney. He says it got caught on the roof, and began burning through fiberglass panel and eventually through some styrofoam on the roof. This caused smoke to fill the building. Chief Burrows says an elderly man was inside when crews arrived, and was trying to put out the fire. He was treated in an ambulance on-site and released shortly after. Chief Burrows estimates the damage to be around $1,000. =================The Fort St. John Fire Department attended a fire at 8808 100th Street on Friday.Ambulance crews were also on-site.The fire is causing minor delays to vehicles travelling in both directions on 100th street.Advertisement – Advertisement -By Christine Rumleskie More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Donegal Rose Chloe Kennedy has been praised as a brave, beautiful and positive young woman after her appearance in the Rose of Tralee final.The 20-year-old Psychology student from Donegal Town missed out on winning the crown – but she was a winner in many eyes after her uplifting interview.The overall winner was the Limerick Rose Sinead Flanagan. Donegal Rose Chloe started her interview on a high note, with a big ‘Up Donegal’ filling the Dome. She earned a big round of applause for mentioning her fondness of ‘the sesh’ and she got a wonderful surprise when she got a celebrity message sent in from Majella O’Donnell to wish her well.In her interview with Daithi O Se, Chloe opened up about the shock of her recent cancer diagnosis.She was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the end of last year and spoke about the impact it had on her and her family.“It was harder seeing what it did to other people,” brave Chloe said about her illness. “I found a strength in myself that I didn’t know I had.”Chloe also gained strength from her family, she said: “I knew we could get through it we’re a strong family. I knew we could get through it and we did.”Laughter filled the room when Chloe revealed that, despite her challenging year, she was fond of the sesh! She said that she had good weeks and bad weeks while having chemo treatment, and the good weeks would involve seeing friends and going for a few drinks.Chloe Kennedy Donegal Rose #RoseOfTralee pic.twitter.com/lnIlbEeIs1— Rose of Tralee (@RoseofTralee_) August 27, 2019Chloe’s treatment was a success, and she said that hearing she was cancer-free was a ‘phenomenal’ feeling.“It’s the best feeling in the world. I hope so many people who get that diagnosis hear that as well,” Chloe said. Chloe had her proud parents – dad Pauric Kennedy, mum Jenni Timoney, stepdad Donal Gallagher, and many more family members and friends cheering her on in the audience.But one famous face was cheering her on from elsewhere – Majella O’Donnell.Chloe mentioned how Majella’s famous head shave on the Late Late Show inspired her as she prepared to shave her own head. “If she can do it, then I can do it,” Chloe said.In a heartwarming surprise moment for Chloe, a video clip was shown from Majella wishing her luck and strength. Viewers on social media have praised Chloe as an amazing young won who has done her home county proud.https://twitter.com/beccaoconnor/status/1166440890195488769Loving the Donegal Rose … 11 months after receiving a cancer diagnosis, 4 months after finishing chemotherapy and she is standing like a champ on the rose of tralee stage #inspirational #donegalroseforthewin #roseoftralee— Karen O’Dowd (@kcroche) August 27, 2019What an inspiring story from Donegal Rose, Chloe Kennedy.

The former Bishop of Raphoe and Derry, Séamus Hegarty, will be laid to rest today (Mon) in St Eugene’s Cathedral.On Friday last, Dr Hegarty died at Letterkenny University Hospital, where he was receiving treatment.He led the diocese of Derry from 1994 to 2011, when he retired due to an “irreversible and progressive” illness. Before that, he served as the Bishop of Raphoe.Hegarty, who was from Kilcar, had been Bishop of Derry from 1994 to 2011 having served as Bishop of Raphoe.He was ordained as a priest in 1966, and was consecrated Bishop of Raphoe in 1982.During his tenure, Bishop Hegarty caused controversy on a number of occasions for his response to the issue of clerical child abuse. In 2005, he apologised to Derry parishioners for not telling them that some of their donations were going towards a central church fund to support victims of clerical sex abuse.The Stewardship Trust was set up by Irish bishops to provide financial redress to victims and to fund child protection initiatives.Bishop Séamus Hegarty to be laid to rest today was last modified: September 23rd, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Harold Evans, writing an op-ed piece for the BBC News, thinks the TV images of destruction from Hurricane Katrina will arouse a new wave “compassion in government” (which he interprets as “the responsibility of government to relieve individual suffering”), and spell the end of Social Darwinism (which he interprets as laissez-faire individualism):My judgment is that the log of Social Darwinism will disappear again under the toxic flood waters of New Orleans. The corpses floating face down in the muddy overflow from broken Mississippi levees are too shocking a sight for Americans of all classes and parties. They are too kindly a people. They will look once again for vigour and compassion in government, even at the price of higher taxes. (Emphasis added.)Evans pointed to Herbert Spencer, who coined the term survival of the fittest nine years before “the great man himself” Charles Darwin wrote the Origin, as the founder of Social Darwinism. Evans claimed that Social Darwinism caught on in America more than in Britain, under the “Yale polemicist” William Graham Sumner. How does Harold Evans illustrate the Social Darwinist attitude in America? Primarily, by presidents of both parties who have expressed reluctance to send federal aid for disaster relief. His only Democrat example, however, was Grover Cleveland; Republicans Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush he used as illustrations of the Social Darwinist attitude that government should not get involved when nature takes its course. FDR, who according to Evans, “almost drove a stake through the heart of Social Darwinism” with his rapid-fire government aid programs during the Depression, illustrates to him a compassionate reaction to Hoover, who “was swept away by a riptide of anger and fear like that which may threaten the Republican ascendancy today.”It’s always welcome to hear Social Darwinism get badmouthed, but Evans, clearly a British liberal seeing government as the solution to everything, makes some historical and logical flaws in his arguments. He portrays Social Darwinism as a primarily conservative/capitalist phenomenon, when actually it was embraced not only by laissez-faire capitalists like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, but just as much – if not more so – by political liberals and materialists in the eugenics movement. (Laissez-faire capitalism actually had roots in Adam Smith, long before Darwin.) He also wrongly conflates belief in individual responsibility with Social Darwinism; the two overlap somewhat at a pragmatic level, but are clearly pointed in nearly opposite directions. Belief in individual responsibility is as old as Moses; it’s a matter of character, not evolution. Individual responsibility and compassion are Christian virtues. Christianity and Social Darwinism are polar opposites. Many Christians and political conservatives who have nothing but the utmost disdain for Social Darwinism do not feel it is solely the government’s job to bail people out of all their mishaps. The amount of government aid that is proper, compared to private charity, is hotly debated in both parties. Social Darwinism enters very little into the discussion nowadays. Evans thus creates a false dichotomy that one is either a compassionate Democrat who believes government is the primary provider of disaster relief, or a laissez-faire Republican who lets people die in floods. Isn’t that a switch. Many conservatives arguing for limited government are the first rushing to help the New Orleans victims, illustrating that compassion and responsibility are not mutually exclusive values. Evans also commits a non-sequitur that big government equals effective aid. Some would argue that some of FDR’s well-intentioned reforms caused more and bigger problems than they solved. The New Deal created lots of activity, motion and emotion, and many touching stories, but the court is still out on whether its policies or World War II actually ended the Depression. And just who is the government, anyway? Who pays the bills? Taxpayers! Government is not some independent benign Father, dispensing its own largesse with magnanimity and impunity. When it steers the people’s money toward disaster relief, it is supposed to be acting as a steward, managing the people’s compassion with the consent of the governed. Some of the New Deal alphabet agencies, long past their period of usefulness during the Depression, have become eternal bureaucracies. Drawing on the finite pool of wealth available for disaster relief by a process Frederic Bastiat called “legal plunder” (i.e., taxation), agencies like FEMA do provide relief in the name of Government, but this begs the question whether they do it faster or cheaper than private charities. Go to any disaster center and you are just as likely (if not more so) to see aid being dispensed by local churches, the Red Cross, World Vision, the Salvation Army, Samaritan’s purse and many other non-governmental groups funded by charitable contributions, not by taxes – and with typically far less overhead than government. The main contributions of government to disaster relief are mobilizing the armed forces for civil defense, providing protection from disease epidemics, and rebuilding the infrastructure.For Evans to use Reagan or Bush as exemplars of a Social Darwinist attitude, therefore, is absurd. A Christian and advocate of intelligent design (08/02/2005), Bush is no more a Social Darwinist than Richard Dawkins is a Pentecostal. The heirs of Spencer and Sumner are not Republicans, but the overwhelmingly-liberal elitist scientists in the AAAS, NAS and Smithsonian who remain committed to the principles of “the great man himself” to this day. For consistent Darwinists, disasters have opened up new evolutionary niches for billions of years. Altruism is just a game to them (03/07/2002, 02/22/2004), with no moral content whatsoever. If disaster has produced such biodiversity, who are we to get in the way of progress? If it weren’t for the historical fact that Social Darwinism produced the likes of Hitler and Stalin, Darwin’s disciples would still be advocating it today, and some are, with the prospect of a New Eugenics (10/12/2001), 10/18/2004, 10/21/2004). Evans should look not to the Americans but to his British brethren – Spencer, Darwin and Francis Galton (Darwin’s cousin, the father of eugenics) – as the instigators of the worldview that would rob civilization of civility, and passion of compassion. Social Darwinism has only preceded its intellectual forebear onto the ash heap of history. Meanwhile, churches all over America, without government pressure or assistance, are rushing into New Orleans and Mississippi with aid (example), and with messages of hope, comfort and salvation (example. Let’s see the Church of Darwin put its rubber on the road. What are they going to tell victims: “Tough luck”? (Visited 57 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
The octopus was glad to see fish evolve, but needed a bigger brain to catch them, so it evolved one of the most complex brains in the animal kingdom. Is that the gist of this story in the Science blog Origins? Greg Miller wrote in the style of a children’s storybook: Cephalopods—octopuses, squid, and their relatives—ruled the seas in the Cambrian era, some 500 million years ago. But their world changed in a big way with the Cambrian Explosion, a rapid diversification of life on Earth that included the origin of fish. Suddenly, cephalopods had new opportunities—delicious fish!—and their first serious competition and potential predators. They had to get smart in a hurry. So it’s no wonder then that modern cephalopods have the most complex brains of any invertebrates. An octopus brain (lower, right) has 50 to 75 lobes and at least as many neurons (about 100 million) as a mouse brain…. And that’s not counting the smaller “brains” in each arm and the still smaller “brains” (ganglia, technically) associated with each sucker. All this neural circuitry gives octopuses exquisite control over their bodies, including some nifty tricks for evading predators, and it has even prompted speculation about cephalopod consciousness. Although the octopus brain rivals the size and complexity of many vertebrate brains, its architecture differs dramatically. “Short of martians showing up and offering themselves up to science, cephalopods are the only example outside of vertebrates of how to build a complex, clever brain,” says neuroscientist Cliff Ragsdale of the University of Chicago in Illinois. For that reason, Ragsdale says, these creatures have much to teach us about brain evolution.Among the nifty tricks exhibited by octopi is instant camouflage. As shown in the video God of Wonders (see 10/24/2009 Resource of the Week), an octopus can swim to a rock and blend in with its colors and textures in milliseconds (06/06/2007). This involves coordination between the eye, brain, and every point on its skin surface. Some octopi can mimic almost any other marine creature (08/30/2001, 03/24/2005, bullet 2, and 04/20/2006, bullet 1). Robot designers study octopi to see how they keep from tying their tentacles in knots (11/27/2001) and achieve precise point-to-point control (02/09/2005).“Origins” is a blog published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science in celebration of the Darwin Bicentennial.All we have to do is hand the microphone to some Darwinists and they will proceed to wrap the cord around their necks and hang themselves from the rafters. If you have a better example of Darwinist stupidity in the news, send it in. To accept this miracle story, first you have to believe that brainless octopi exploded into existence in the Cambrian seas without ancestors (see 03/19/2009 and watch the film Darwin’s Dilemma). Then fish exploded onto the scene without ancestors (01/30/2003), and the octopus figured out, without a complex brain, that fish are good to eat. So it said to itself, “Wow! Fish taste great, but I need a complex brain to be able to catch them. Waiter! One complex brain, well done, on the double!” Then it thought to itself (without a brain yet) and said, “Wait a second, there; there is no Waiter. Guess I’ll have to cook up this one myself! Now where can I buy some neural circuits….” Help defeat Darwinism. How? Laugh out loud. Would anyone like to publish a cartoon book of your favorite SEQOTW winners over the last 9 years? Remember, this stuff is being published by the leading scientific journals in the world. That makes it even more funny.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Thousands of South African flags will be handed out to travellers and holidaymakers over the Easter weekend as part of “Fly the Flag for Football“, a national campaign to build public support and excitement leading up to the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup.The 2010 National Communication Partnership, a partnership of organisations involved in communicating about the soccer showpieces being hosted by South Africa, aims to distribute over 47-million South African flags through various campaigns by the time the World Cup kicks off in June 2010.“Our national Flag is a powerful symbol of unity and pride, and we would like to play our part by encouraging South Africans to proudly fly the flag as the eyes of the world are upon us,” Margaret Dingalo of the International Marketing Council of South Africa said in a statement on Monday.“The 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup is starting in less than 100 days, and excitement is building,” Dingalo said. “We need to help drive enthusiasm and patriotism, garnering support among South Africans for Bafana Bafana and the event as a whole.”Dingalo said the Easter long weekend had been chosen to launch the campaign as it was traditionally one of the busiest holiday periods in South Africa, with thousands of people travelling across the country.Colourful face-painted figures wearing South African flag t-shirts and makarapas, the football fan hat that is unique to South Africa, will be handing out free flags at tollgates, garages and airports across the country.Stand to win Confederations Cup tickets for yourself and three friends: visit flythesouthafricanflag on your mobile, or SMS ‘FLAG’ to 41929 (R2 per SMS).State-of-the-art digital “shoot-outs” will take place at a number of airports and garages along busy holiday routes, where members of the public will have a chance to win prizes by taking shots at a virtual goal.Zakumi, the 2010 Fifa World Cup mascot, will also be spotted around the country interacting with people and encouraging support.For South African football great Mark Fish, the campaign’s official spokesman, the Confederations Cup and World Cup are about more than football, representing “the opportunity of a lifetime, for South Africa and Africa as a whole.“Let us raise our flags in unity, joining together to make the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup and 2010 Fifa World Cup joyful, unforgettable events,” Fish said. “Fly your flag and show the world the warmth and spirit of South Africa.”The Fly the Flag for Football! campaign will include an interactive mobile website, where members of the public can find more information and enter competitions.Members of the 2010 National Communication Partnership include the International Marketing Council of SA, South African Tourism, the 2010 Fifa World Cup Local Organising Committee, the Department of Arts and Culture, South African Airways, Proudly South African, and several other private sector and civil society groups.Related articlePress Releases: Fly the flag for football

What are your impressions of the URSA Mini 4.6K camera and 4.0 firmware? Share your opinions in the comments below.The URSA Mini 4.6K camera and 4.0 firmware was tested and reviewed by Ryan Patterson and Michael Maher. We got our hands on a Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K with the latest firmware. It’s an impressive overhaul, practically making it a whole new camera.Top image via Blackmagic DesignBlackmagic recently released a new 4.0 beta firmware for their Ursa Mini 4K and Ursa Mini 4.6K. With no existing legacy code from the past, the Blackmagic Camera Setup 4.0 is a complete overhaul of their operating system and user interface. Not only that, but quite a few new features that improve the overall functionality of the camera are nicely tucked in there as well.URSA Mini 4.6K Touchscreen MenuPerhaps the most significant change is the overhaul of the touchscreen menu. The visual style of the touchscreen menu system is very simple and clean. On and off switches and adjustable sliders are plentiful, which makes it easy to glance at the screen and see exactly what is going on.Unlike most other production cameras, there is not a list-style menu system to scroll through — only to realize that the function you wanted wasn’t even there to begin with. It seems like Blackmagic took a cue from the RED playbook and gave users the ability to see all your options at once instead of hiding things deep in a menu tree.The simple swipes left and right change the page under any menu header. The ability to get to any of those headers at any time without having to retreat back to a home page makes adjusting settings like turning on a LUT or adjusting off-speed frame rate very easy to do on the fly.There’s a familiarity to it that makes it ever so simple to understand and master. After only a few minutes playing around, I felt like I could change any setting within seconds. In live viewing mode, touching any of the essential settings like white balance, shutter, and ISO allow instant changes to those specific functions.It’s worth mentioning that Blackmagic’s color control is heavily reliant upon post color work with their DaVinci Resolve software and the use of user-generated LUTs that can be loaded in via the CFAST cards. As a result, the absence of color control in camera is refreshingly simple and doesn’t overcrowd the menu system with gamma and color settings most shooters won’t ever really use.Everything in the menu is an important function, and it’s important to note that not only did Blackmagic think about how they laid out the menu system — but what they put in there as well.URSA Mini 4.6K Beta BugsBeing a beta version of any software implies that it might be a bit buggy. Booting the camera up takes too long. Playback mode often takes a few seconds too long to get out of, and it’s not easy to get to a specific point in a clip. Overall, you don’t need tiny fingers to hit any of the options with the exception of the forward, reverse, and play buttons in playback mode. Fortunately, there are also hard buttons for those functions on the physical camera itself that are much easier to use.Swiping left and right on the touchscreen can cause unwanted changes in menu options, especially those that are adjusted via sliders. When in live-viewing mode (not in the menus), swiping left enables a screen for the input of metadata such as slate info, director and cinematographer names, and other shot-specific notes. Seems like that function could be delegated to something more useful, but that is definitely personal preference. It’s quite easy to accidentally touch the screen and land somewhere you don’t want to be like that metadata input screen. Maybe in the future Blackmagic will allow users to customize and lock certain gestures. For now, it’s totally manageable.Utilizing a touchscreen menu system on the same screen used for composing and focusing the shot can be an annoyance without an additional monitor. Although you can change essential settings without pulling up the menu, accessing anything else completely kills the image. There’s also the element of dirt and residue from your hands building up and smudging the screen, especially on location. Tapping an LCD screen too hard can risk permanently damaging it as well.Since we’ve completed our review of the camera, Blackmagic has already updated to Public Beta 2, addressing a few of these concerns — including the slow boot time. For more details on that update, check out the Blackmagic website.URSA Mini 4.6K ReviewPhysically, the camera feels robust and sturdy compared to other brands’ similarly priced models. The rectangular form factor, on par with bigger players like Sony and ARRI, enables comfortable cradling and handheld configurations with nothing jutting out to make things uncomfortable and awkward. This is a major improvement over the pretty goofy form factor of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.To get past a simple tripod setup, you will have to invest quite a bit of money for accessories like the Ursa Mini Viewfinder and Shoulder Rig Kit. Add that to the cost of purchasing larger batteries necessary to run the camera like Anton Bauers or IDX V-mounts, chargers, CFAST cards, a card reader, and you’ve nearly doubled the cost of your investment.URSA Mini 4.6K ungraded screen grab.With that said, this camera should be considered an extremely viable option for independent shooters looking to step up their game. Although the new software stands out among its competitors, it is not enough of a selling point to really be a strong factor in the decision to purchase the camera.For cinematographers who rent for larger projects, but want to own a camera for their own packages — the URSA Mini 4.6K is a solid choice. It’s affordable, takes EF lenses (depending on the model), and you can easily rent any additional gear and accessories for larger productions. There are also great third-party accessories from manufacturers like Wooden Camera.The image quality, physical aspects of the body, and the ability to build it up to a professional cinema-style camera for independent movies and documentaries is a major plus. The URSA Mini 4.6K is certainly capable of having as simple or as large of a set up as you want — from one-man band to a full studio camera.Best uses for the URSA Mini 4.6K:Independent FilmsDocumentary (Short and Feature)Commercials / PromosDP Personal Camera PackageMusic VideosCorporate Videos
A day after the show of strength by the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party-Rashtriya Lok Dal alliance in Saharanpur’s Deoband, the stage was set for Congress president Rahul Gandhi and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to address supporters in the constituency on Monday.However, after hours of waiting, the crowd gathered at Gandhi Park in Saharanpur left without a glimpse of the brother and sister. According to the announcement made about three hours after the rally was supposed to start, the two leaders were forced to cancel their appearance at the rally in Saharanpur, as well as in Shamli and Bijnor later in the day, due to “bad weather”, which prevented their helicopter from taking off. Ms. Gandhi would, however, hold a roadshow in Saharanpur, which goes to polls on April 11, on Tuesday morning, the party announced.Support for MasoodAs the crowd was gathering at the venue earlier in the day, a dust storm blew through, ripping the tents open and leaving the metal trussing dangling overhead. While the two star campaigners of the party cancelled, many local Congress leaders as well as representatives of the Bhim Army turned up to lend support to the Saharanpur candidate, Imran Masood.Many among the crowd said that they will continue to support and will vote for the Congress candidate, while some felt they were “fooled” and used to assemble a big crowd at the venue.Rashid Ahmed, a carpenter who attended the rally, said: “We will all still vote for the Congress. Priyanka is coming for a roadshow on Tuesday, and we will go and attend that as well.”Mr. Ahmed was interrupted by another member of the crowd, Ishrar, who said: “They have made fools out of us, they just wanted a big crowd.”For Mohammad Farhan, an 18-year-old first-time voter, defeating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government was the aim.“Modi kept promising acchhe din. The good days never came, so we want the old days back. Rahul Gandhi does what he says, Modi only spreads rumours,” he said.Twenty-one-year-old college student Shahrukh Ali said: “Modi has done sabka saath, sabka naash. I opened four zero balance accounts and they are still at zero. Now, I will wait for ₹72,000 [minimum income guaranteed by the Congress].”Rally vs rally Another local at the rally, Gulbahar, said he had attended the gathbandhan’s rally in Deoband on Sunday as well and the turnout was more than that at the Congress rally.“Haji Fazulrahman [the SP-BSP-RLD alliance candidate] may win here, but Rahul should be the next Prime Minister,” he said.Ram Kumar Jogi, a teacher who attended the rally, said: “What they [Mr. Gandhi and Ms. Vadra] did today is disrespect of the whole community. All parties are making false promises.”
Peter Littlewood, a theoretical condensed matter physicist who cut his teeth at the famed Bell Labs in New Jersey, has been named the new director of Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Illinois, effective 1 April. One of 10 national labs run by the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Science, Argonne has an annual budget of $722 million and a staff of 3350. Littlewood replaces Eric Isaacs, also a Bell Labs veteran, who is stepping down to become the provost of the University of Chicago, which runs Argonne for DOE.”Peter is a guy with a good sense of what science is worth doing, so I think he’ll be working at the hands-on level to direct things,” says William Brinkman, a theorist who worked at Bell Labs for many years and served as director of the Office of Science from 2009 to 2013. Although Argonne is mainly an experimental lab and Littlewood is a theorist, he will have no trouble keeping up with what’s going on, Brinkman predicts. At Bell Labs, Littlewood worked closely with experimentalists, Brinkman says, and being a theorist “probably gives him the ability to pull back a little and see the bigger picture.”Littlewood already knows plenty about administration in general and Argonne in particular. Since 2011, he has been the lab’s associate director for physical sciences and engineering. Prior to that, he served for 6 years as director of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, the same university from which he received his doctorate in 1980. Littlewood worked at Bell Labs from 1980 to 1997, eventually heading the lab’s theory division.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Argonne is home to the Advanced Photon Source (APS), the brightest x-ray synchrotron in the Western Hemisphere; the Mira supercomputer; and numerous other facilities. Given the broad spectrum of research that it supports—ranging from materials science and chemistry to structural biology, and from combustion research to cosmology—Argonne has fared better than some DOE labs in recent years. Although since last October, it has cut 100 staff members through buyouts and layoffs. Nevertheless, Littlewood takes the director’s chair brimming with enthusiasm. “The main thing I wanted and I think I got [by coming to Argonne] is a chance to work on really hard, important problems that can only be addressed in a collaborative way,” he says. “The issue with budgets is that people have to make choices, and if you want to tilt that debate you have to actually be in it.”A U.K. citizen and permanent resident of the United States, Littlewood says he’s encouraged by the generally bipartisan support for science in the United States. “I find that the fundamental gut-level commitment to science is very strong, regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on,” he says.Argonne has some programmatic issues on its plate, Brinkman says. Accelerator researchers had been planning a $400 million upgrade to the APS, which turned on in 1996. However, last July a DOE advisory panel urged the agency to rethink the upgrade and pursue a much more ambitious plan that would require a complete rebuild of the accelerator at the heart of the facility. “That’s a big challenge to get that done in a reasonable time,” says Brinkman, who adds that the previous plan was “the wrong direction.” Similarly, last year Argonne started up the $125 million Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, a so-called energy innovation hub that aims to develop in 5 years a battery that can pack five times as much energy as a current lithium-ion battery for one-fifth the cost.Littlewood agrees that such efforts are immediate priorities. But when asked about big challenges, he first points to something else. “Diversity, which is a problem for the whole scientific community,” Littlewood says. “I don’t work with as diverse a group of colleagues as I would like, and realistically if we don’t look like the rest of the world, we go extinct.” Pretty clearly, Littlewood sees his new job as more than just managing projects and keeping budgets in order.
A 22-year-old Indian American Mohammed Abraar Ali was charged with second-degree murder while driving under the influence of a combination of marijuana and alcohol on Christmas eve. The California resident is accused of killing Highway Patrol rookie officer Andrew Camilleri and injuring Officer Jonathan Velasquez.Ali was reportedly speeding at 120 miles per hour when he crashed his Cadillac into a parked patrol car on Interstate Highway 880 in Hayward around midnight on Dec. 24. Camilleri, 33, is survived by his wife and three children, aged 12, 6 and 2 years, according to Gov. Jerry Brown’s office.Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley charged Ali with driving under the influence of a combination of marijuana and alcohol. He is said to have told paramedics at the scene of the incident that he had ingested marijuana. His blood alcohol level was at 0.11 per cent. The permitted level in California is 0.08 per cent. He is also charged with causing great bodily injury to Velasquez.“The loss of life which could have been avoidable if every driver acts responsibly and lawfully,” O’Malley said, according to ABC10. “This holiday season, since Thanksgiving, we have seen six tragic deaths at the hands of individuals who were alleged to be driving under the influence of a substance either alcohol or drugs.”Ali is also said to have told KTVU San Francisco that he had consumed both marijuana and alcohol. He apparently also told investigators that he had threatened his wife on Dec. 24, knew that he was impaired and still continued to drive.The California Highway Patrol said that Camilleri and Velasquez were parked on Interstate 880 in Hayward looking for reckless or impaired drivers when Ali’s car crashed into theirs.Ali was also injured in the crash and stayed in the hospital for 48 hours before being sent to Santa Rita Jail.Camilleri’s family, friends and many law enforcement officers and firefighters attended his memorial last week in the central California city of Stockton. He had become a highway patrol officer only in March. Related ItemsCaliforniaIndian American

Inter Milan continued their revival under new coach Luciano Spalletti with an assured display in a 2-1 victory over English champions Chelsea to win the International Champions Cup Singapore tournament on Saturday.Two days after the Italian side beat Bayern Munich 2-0 at the same venue, Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic put Inter into a commanding lead before a bizarre own goal from Geoffrey Kondogbia gave Chelsea hope of a late recovery.Former Roma coach Spalletti joined Inter last month and the charismatic Italian has already instilled a steely resolve in his players, who followed up last week’s win over Lyon in China with a brace of impressive victories in Singapore’s National Stadium.Manager Antonio Conte sent out arguably Chelsea’s strongest lineup from the squad available on the tour, with record signing Alvaro Morata handed a debut start on the left side of a front-three, alongside Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi and Brazilian Willian.Spalletti rested Martins Eder, who scored both goals in the victory over Bayern, and gave former Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic the central striking role in a 4-2-3-1 formation.Both sides started on the front foot, probing for openings in early exchanges, and Inter forged the first chance in the second minute when Antonio Candreva beat the offside trap but was denied by a fantastic stop from keeper Thibaut Courtois.The London side were on top for most of the first period, but found themselves a goal down on the stroke of half-time when Cesar Azpilicueta was harshly adjudged to have brought down Jovetic in the area. Although Courtois saved his penalty, the Montenegrin blasted home the rebound.advertisement”We are improving day by day and we want to continue this going into the new season,” Inter captain Miranda said in a pitch-side interview.Both sides pressed for openings following the interval and a moment of brilliance from Ivan Perisic made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute when the coveted Croatian winger broke down the left and drilled a crisp low shot underneath the Belgian keeper.As the contest drifted and both coaches made a raft of changes in the second half, Morata was withdrawn after 65 minutes, the Spaniard unable to really impose himself on the match and still looking short of fitness.Inter were firmly in control until an amazing own goal gifted Chelsea a way back into the match in the 74th minute when Geoffrey Kondogbia inexplicably lofted an overhit back pass over Daniele Padelli from near the halfway line.Chelsea were revived by the shock reprieve and launched wave after wave of attack in the closing minutes. After Batshuayi was denied an equaliser for offside, a desperate Inter managed to cling on for their third consecutive win of their Asia tour.
Share on Pinterest Juventus won the Coppa Italia for the fourth year running and a record 13th time with a crushing 4-0 victory over Milan, who suffered a second-half meltdown in the final on Wednesday.Medhi Benatia, the central defender, struck twice for Juventus and Douglas Costa was also on target on an unhappy evening for the Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who was at fault for the second and third goals. An own goal by the substitute Nikola Kalinic completed a calamitous defensive display by Milan. Share on Twitter Juventus, who became the first team to win the competition without conceding a goal, are almost certain to add this year’s Serie A title to their trophy cabinet and complete a fourth successive double.The Turin side are six points clear of Napoli with two games to play and their goal difference is better by 16. “The lads played an extraordinary game and deserved this win, taking nothing away from Milan, who had a good first half,” the Juve coach, Massimiliano Allegri, said.His counterpart, Gennaro Gattuso, who had been hoping to lead Milan to their first trophy since 2011, said his team had played better until the first goal. “That’s football,” he said. “Juventus barely troubled us for the first 56 minutes apart from a [Mario] Mandzukic header. But we paid for our mistakes. I feel bad that we brought 35,000 people here to watch us lose like this.”After an even first half with few clear chances, the game changed completely in the second half and was effectively settled in a 10-minute spell.Donnarumma got down low to his right to make a superb save from Paulo Dybala’s rasping drive but that was as good as it got for the 19-year-old. From the resulting corner, Benatia got away from his marker and stooped to head Juve in front after 56 minutes.Five minutes later, Donnarumma allowed a low shot from Costa to slip through his hands and into the net, and the hapless goalkeeper then failed to hold a header, allowing Benatia to snap up the rebound.Milan, who like Juventus had not conceded on the way to the final, brought on Kalinic but the Croat striker scored at the wrong end, heading in a corner at the near post under no real pressure in the 76th minute.

news Sonny Bill Williams Ambitious Super League newcomers Toronto Wolfpack have reportedly made a $9m play to lure Sonny Bill Williams back to the 13-a-side game. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the 34-year-old superstar is weighing up a two-year deal.Williams is contracted to New Zealand rugby until the conclusion of the Rugby World Cup in Japan – with the All Blacks preparing to face Wales on Friday in the third-place playoff. Share on Pinterest Topics Australia sport Support The Guardian Super League Share via Email Share on Messenger Rugby league He came off the bench in the All Blacks’ semi-final defeat to England on Saturday.It is believed that a host of rugby clubs have already made a play for Williams while back-to-back NRL premiers Sydney Roosters appear to be priced out of the race for the services of their former back-rower.The Wolfpack were established in 2016 and will be the first North American team to compete in the Super League after they won promotion to the top-tier via the Million Pound Game on 5 October.They are funded by Australian mining and resources billionaire David Argyle, who has previously revealed his interest in snaring Williams as their marquee signing.Toronto coach Brian McDermott told the PA news agency earlier this month that they wanted to bring in a David Beckham-type player to raise their profile, much like the former footballer did for Los Angeles Galaxy and the MLS, and that Williams fits the bill.“Our club would want to have a name that’s absolutely international that everybody would recognise and help the profile of our game, very much like David Beckham did for Major League Soccer,” McDermott said.“We are in discussions but nothing is finalised or confirmed,” the Toronto chairman Bob Hunter added.

SOUTH BEND, IN – NOVEMBER 04: The macot, cheerleaders and players forthe Notre Dame Fighting Irish run onto the field before a game against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Notre Dame Stadium on November 4, 2017 in South Bend, Indiana. Notre Dame defeated Wake Forest 48-37. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)Later this month, Notre Dame will battle for the chance to reach the national championship. Until then, fans could get excited over the possibility of adding a potential-packed recruit for the class of 2020, in linebacker Jaheim Thomas.Although there hasn’t been anything close to a final decision yet, Thomas has the Fighting Irish high on his radar. The four-star recruit has the physical gifts to become an absolute star in college. While he’s not ready to announce his commitment in the immediate future, he sounds very pleased about receiving an offer from Notre Dame.It’s still early in his recruiting process, but Thomas was very complimentary about the Fighting Irish.From 247Sports:“I was very excited to get offered by Notre Dame, and I was hoping for this since I visited there last spring.”“I haven’t really cut my list down yet, but my parents and I are working on it,” he said. “Notre Dame will definitely be in the final group. “I want to commit to someone next summer, but if not then it will be early in my senior season.”Thomas is listed as the No. 16 outside linebacker in his class, per 247Sports.Over the years, the Fighting Irish have featured stars at the linebacker position, which includes Manti Te’o and Jaylon Smith. Perhaps, Thomas can add to that long line of history, if he chooses to enroll at Notre Dame.As of right now, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Bowling Green are also on his college list.[247Sports]
zoom The European Union is about to reinstate sanctions against 40 Iranian shipping companies as it turns up the heat against Tehran over its nuclear program.The European Council sent a letter two weeks ago to the shipping firms’ lawyer Maryam Taher, claiming that the reasons for the intended re-listings included the companies being owned or controlled by the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping lines (IRISL) or for providing training, spare parts and services to IRISL or its employees, Reuters reports.Taher is cited by Reuters as saying that the decision to re-list the companies was “purely politically motivated and not based on any proper evidence” that the entities were linked with nuclear proliferation or Iran’s government.The sanctions were lifted this January when the EU General Court annulled the restrictive measures against an Iranian bank and 40 shipping companies whose assets had been frozen.The court said that companies linked to IRISL have not been proven to had been involved in supporting nuclear proliferation.The 40 shipping companies involved in the case include Hamburg-based Ocean Capital Administration GmbH, Kerman Shipping Co. Ltd, Woking Shipping Investments Ltd, established in Valetta, Malta among others.The sanctions remained in place until the appeal process was over, however; the EU decided to proceed with sanctions.In February, the EU decided to again blacklist Iran’s largest tanker operator National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC), after the company failed to convince a London Court to prevent the EU from reimposing sanctions.The decision to reinstate sanctions comes amid efforts of the global powers to reach a framework agreement with Tehran that would restrict the most sensitive aspects of Iran’s atomic program in return for an easing of international sanctions.World Maritime News Staff
TORONTO – Striking ground crews at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport have accepted a tentative contract.Employees at Swissport voted 63 per cent in favour of the new agreement reached earlier this month and will return to work on Wednesday.The Teamsters, which represents the workers, says the three-year deal contains minor improvements on wages, benefits and scheduling.The 700 ramp equipment operators, baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, and other ground crew workers went on strike July 27.The workers had complained about pay and benefits cuts, scheduling issues, and what their union called a lack of respect from Swissport managers.The company services 30 airlines at the airport, including Air Transat, Sunwing Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Air France, KLM and Lufthansa. Air Canada and WestJet are not serviced by the company.
The president of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League says a decision on what to do with the SJHL championship has yet to be made following Friday’s deadly collision between a truck and a bus that was carrying the Humboldt Broncos team.Bill Chow says he expects word on how the league intends to handle the final will come within the next few days.The Broncos were en route to Nipawin, Sask., for Game 5 of their league semifinal when the team’s bus collided with a semi-truck, killing 15.The Nipawin Hawks were leading Humboldt 3-1 in the best-of-seven series after losing Game 4 in triple overtime earlier in the week.The Estevan Bruins had already advanced to the championship final.The SJHL is a junior ‘A’ hockey league with 12 teams.“We’re a little bit too early to make that decision,” Chow told The Canadian Press on Sunday. “We’ll be meeting as a group, obviously the Humboldt Broncos, the league’s board of governors, and we’ll be making that decision.”Chow said both the Bruins and Hawks will also be involved in the eventual decision.“They have representatives at the board, so they’ll have a say in the situation. That’s where that decision will be made.”A vigil is scheduled for tonight at the Broncos’ home arena.
OTTAWA — The Liberal government is rolling out several new measures to protect vulnerable migrant workers and immigrants living in Canada.Starting next week, temporary foreign workers who find themselves in abusive job situations in Canada will be able to apply for open work permits, which will allow them to find other work in Canada.This is meant to address a number of documented cases across the country of migrant workers facing labour exploitation, human-rights abuses and squalid housing situations.Also, in mid July, newcomers experiencing family violence will be able to apply for free temporary resident permits that will give them legal immigration status in Canada, which includes work permits and health-care coverage.Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen says nobody should be more fearful of losing their immigration status than of escaping abuse.In addition, the government is speeding up the process for newcomers who are victims of family violence to apply for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.The Canadian Press
Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman and Josh Gad publicly declared their support for Matt Damon’s Toilet Strike in a PSA, released today.Video: Jason Bateman, Jessica Biel, and Josh Gad Support the Strike!In doing so, they announced their protest of the global water crisis and pledged “…not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation.”This latest declaration follows the dramatic press conference held by Matt Damon on February 12 in which he announced his “toilet strike.” Since that time, prominent YouTube and online celebrities have supported Damon including Smosh, ShayCarl, EpicLloyd, WheezyWaiter, LivePrudeGirls, Lisa Schwartz, and John Elerick. Biel, Bateman, and Gad are the latest to take action in an attempt to accelerate action towards providing safe water and sanitation to the 2.5 billion people who do without.In the PSA, Biel, Bateman and Gad reveal their unique take on the strike and how they’ve managed to follow through on their commitment. Biel reveals, “I’ve never gone to the bathroom in my entire life.” Bateman divulges his ingenious alternative to the toilet, while Gad demonstrates his persistence – and how he feels about it.Co-founder of Water.org, Damon makes an appearance in the PSA, inviting all to “Join the millions of famous people who’ve already joined” his strike. Water.org invites viewers to visit StrikeWithMe.org where they can “Support the Strike,” subscribe to upcoming videos, take action, and learn more.
Today, the Ad Council, The Humane Society of the United States and Maddie’s Fund in partnership with Halo Pet Foundation, released an online video series called “Meet My Shelter Pet” to showcase the unique bonds between shelter pets and their adoptive owners and remind viewers that there are thousands of amazing shelter pets ready to meet them.Video: Meet My Shelter Pet: Paul & Victoria ShafferLaunched to coincide with National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, one of the videos features legendary music man and David Letterman band leader, Paul Shaffer, with his daughter Victoria showing off the lovable personalities of their four adopted dogs, Riley, Jake, Echo and Rue.“Everybody should have a shelter dog. It’s good for the soul,” said Paul Shaffer. “All four of our dogs have been absolute gems. Why would you want to do anything else but rescue a pet?”The videos are part of The Shelter Pet Project, a public service advertising (PSA) campaign that for four years has helped to positively change the perception of shelter pets, with euthanasia rates declining by 10 percent during the campaign’s time period. Despite these gains, however, 2.7 million healthy and treatable pets are still losing their lives in shelters each year. The Shelter Pet Project’s goal is to bring that number down to zero.Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS said: “We know that Paul and Victoria’s online video for The Shelter Pet Project will inspire more people to rescue a shelter pet. That outcome will be music to our ears, and to every shelter director in America.”“You must watch these videos from The Shelter Pet Project— they will touch your heart in a powerfully positive, uplifting way! The Halo Pet Foundation is honored to support The Humane Society of the United States encouraging pet adoption from shelters,” said David Yaskulka, Vice President, Marketing Communications, HALO, Purely for Pets.Shelter pet adoptions are on the rise in the United States. According to The Humane Society of the United States, 17 million people will acquire a dog or cat within the next year, and each year four million of these animals are adopted from shelters.“Every happy adoption story encourages other people to open their hearts to a homeless pet,” said Maddie’s Fund President Rich Avanzino. “By showing the joy their adopted pets have brought to their family, Paul and Victoria are inspiring countless others to share that same incredible experience.”“The beauty of The Shelter Pet Project campaign is that these pets speak for themselves,” said Peggy Conlon, president and CEO of the Ad Council. “We hope these videos will break down barriers and encourage people to consider shelter pet adoption as the only option bringing a pet into their family.”In the upcoming months, a video featuring Vampire Diaries and Army Wives’ actress Torrey DeVitto and her dog Beau will be released.

Rabat – Moroccan carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has banned a Moroccan woman from boarding a plane from Casablanca to Saudi Arabia this Monday, Moroccan media reported.The Moroccan airline employees stopped the woman from boarding the flight, although she showed them her flight ticket, a valid visa and her employment contract in Saudi Arabia, daily Akhbar Alyaoum reported.The newspaper quoted a source from RAM as saying that the Moroccan company received instructions from Saudi Arabian authorities not to allow Moroccan women, under the age of 45, to enter Saudi Arabia for Umrah, unless they are accompanied with their mahram (a male relative). However, the source did not specify whether this measure applies also to Moroccan women who have employment contracts in the Gulf country and want to enter the country for work.This incident comes a few weeks after Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the government would ban Moroccan women from going to work as domestic maid in Saudi Arabia.Last month, a Moroccan whose employer had allegedly abused her and prevented her from leaving the house, shared a video on YouTube where she recounts her ordeal.Alerted by the number of Moroccan woman abused by their employers, the Ministry said that it would no longer validate maids’ employment contracts, in order to “spare Moroccans” from facing “compromising situations”.

Ohio State football coach Everett Withers made light of the Buckeyes’ impending Big Ten Conference opener during a Monday press conference. “Big Ten week, huh?” OSU’s co-defensive coordinator and assistant head coach said with a smile. Withers’ lightheartedness aside, there’s no mistaking that the No. 14 Buckeyes (4-0) know exactly what time of year it is. There’s also no mistaking whether the Buckeyes have anything to play for either – they do. The first team to oppose OSU in pursuit of the divisional title is Michigan State. In a meeting of the conference’s top-ranked teams, OSU will journey to East Lansing, Mich., to face No. 20 MSU (3-1) at Spartan Stadium. Preparation for Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer’s first-ever Big Ten tilt began Sunday with a “state of the union meeting” to address chasing the divisional crown. The goal of winning the Leaders Division half of the conference was first established for the Buckeyes during that meeting, Meyer said. “The first time we talked about (winning the Leaders Division) was (Sunday) in our team state of the union meeting we had and this is you have an opportunity to go win your side of the Big Ten,” Meyer said. Meyer chose to address winning the division because it was not discussed as a goal for any of the Buckeyes’ first four games against Miami (Ohio), Central Florida, California or Alabama Birmingham, he said. OSU redshirt senior defensive back Orhian Johnson said the team is focused on MSU. Meyer will handle the rest if the Buckeyes take care of business on the field, Johnson said. “You know, (winning the Leaders Division is) a possibility for us, but regardless of the situation, we’ve got a game,” Johnson said. “As long as we go out there and do what we do against Michigan State.” Meyer previously claimed to be unaware of OSU eligibility for the Leaders Division title, but some of his players, like redshirt receiver Jake Stoneburner, were aware. Stoneburner said the state of the union meeting was Meyer’s first mention of winning the division. The opportunity to win a piece of hardware during the 2012 season has given players added motivation, Stoneburner said. “I think he was finally saying that we have something to play for other than just going undefeated,” Stoneburner said. “We can win our division and I think it gives guys a little bit of hope, not that we didn’t have any in the first place, but it gives guys a little extra incentive.” Saturday’s meeting will be the teams’ first in East Lansing since 2008. Only two Buckeye players who are reshirt seniors – defensive end Nathan Williams and linebacker Etienne Sabino – played in that game, a 45-7 OSU victory. A visit to a ranked in-conference opponent is nothing to fear, Johnson said. It’s exactly the reason (players) come to OSU. “It’s definitely fun to get back in the Big Ten ball. I mean, that’s what you come here for,” Johnson said. “So we just want to come out there and lock in, and playing on the road is definitely fun. Just playing in a different atmosphere.” Senior fullback Zach Boren agreed, saying the competition is heightened at this time of year because every team understands what is at stake. “The Big Ten is always a new part of the season. It’s always a new chapter because, you know, this is a tough, physical conference,” Boren said. “The games start to matter that much more because you’re playing for conference championships.” That’s exactly the position OSU is in. The games matter more because OSU does indeed have something to play for, Meyer said. “Are we playing for something? You’re darned right we are,” Meyer said. “It’s really important here. Look around. Really important.” OSU and MSU are scheduled to kickoff their Saturday game at 3:30 p.m. Grant Gannon and Andrew Holleran contributed to this article.
THE POLITICIAN IN charge of reporting back to the government about expert testimony ahead of new abortion legislation has conceded that the publishing timetable is “tight” ahead of the summer recess.“But I think it can be done,” Jerry Buttimer told TheJournal.ie earlier today. “We certainly need to reflect on the hearings but the committee will report its findings next Thursday, 30 May.”Speaking in Dublin today, Minister for Health James Reilly told reporters that he would do “everything that is humanly possible” to ensure the laws are brought before the end of July.“There is a big job of work to be done and nobody is underestimating that,” he said, adding that it is important everybody is given an opportunity to make a contribution to the process.The possibility of the Dáil sitting extra hours – or even days – has been mooted to ensure the bill is pushed through before the deadline passes.Buttimer said he is pleased that the committee hearings helped gather the different viewpoints on what is a “sensitive social matter”. He noted that with such a complex issue, tensions are bound to run high but that the proceedings were held in an “calm and dignified manner”.He has come in for some criticism from Independent Oireachtas members Senator Rónán Mullen and TD Mattie McGrath today for remarks made on morning radio shows.In a statement, Mullen described the hearings as a “deliberate exercise in non-consultation” during which the government showed no willingness to revisit the “controversial essence of its bill”.Buttimer had no comment to make on the individual statements.6 interesting moments from the final day of the Oireachtas abortion hearingsColumn: Changing the law on abortion is dangerous and unjustColumn: No woman has an abortion on a whim
Tomorrow’s South Australian state election is expected to go down to the wire.It is estimated that the ballot will come down to a handful of votes, in a handful of seats.Experts are forecasting that Labor will retain government by the narrowest of margins, with only one seat going to an independent.Which is why preferences are going to be so important.Enter the Fair Tax party, headed by Greek-Australian mortgage broker George Kargiotis.Mr Kargiotis is standing for an upper house seat, while ten of his Greek-Australian colleagues vie for lower house preferences.The Fair Tax Party was founded earlier this year in protest against what Mr Kargiotis terms “unfair taxes”.“We have real stories to tell,” he says.“A pensioner forced to sell the family’s much-loved holiday shack because he was hit with a huge land tax bill he couldn’t pay.“A young entrepreneur who can’t grow his business in his home State because payroll tax is killing him.“Middle-aged couples who suddenly find the plans they made to take care of themselves in retirement are going to cost them more in tax than they’ll make in income.”Despite only having 300 members, he is confident that his party can snaffle some votes and swing the preferences their way.”Our preferences in the lower house will be going to the Liberal Party. They are in the nine marginal seats, and that is being deliberately done so we can swing those votes over,” he says.“We know we’re a long shot but we’re optimistic, and we’ve done everything we can to try and get the best result we can on Saturday.”But not everyone is convinced that his stance has the best interests of the majority in mind, accusing the Fair Tax Party of standing for the interests of wealthy investors.“I can see that, but the way it works is that if you have a land tax bill, you’re going to try and recoup it from somewhere.“Now it’s more than likely that if you own a residential property and you’ve got a land tax bill of $10,000, how are you going to recoup that?“You’re going to recoup that by putting the rent up. Now the tenant’s going to be paying an extra twenty or thirty dollars a week. Who’s really paying for the land tax bill?”Also running for an upper house seat is Director of the Plastic Surgery Department of the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Dr Jim Katsaros, for the Save RAH Party.Dr Karatsos is standing to prevent the Rann government from spending $1 billion on a new hospital and instead wants to upgrade the current Royal Adelaide Hospital to a world-class standard.In an open letter to South Australians, Dr Karatsos questions the Rann government’s commitment to improving health care standards.“The state government says it has a plan for all Adelaide hospitals. There is no evidence that it has any credible plans because it does not know how much money it is able to spend on our health system,” he says.“In truth, we are all left to speculate about what it is trying to do about our future health.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

A 7News crew showed the surveillance video of the confrontation to Marathon customers, Friday evening.“Oh, my gosh!” said customer Shantorna Kendrick.“Wow, ooh, wow. That’s crazy,” said a man.“Oh, wow, for a few dollars,. It’s scary; I mean, you have to be careful,” said Omar Cheema, who owns the Farm Stores drive-thru located next to the gas station.“I’ve been here for, like, 10 years, nine years, and I haven’t seen anything like this,” said Cheema.The clerk who was working at the Marathon station Tuesday night said she did not see anything but heard screaming just after the theft.“I closed the door, maybe at 9 p.m.,” said the employee. “The suspect said something to him. I don’t know exactly what he said to him, but said something friendly, most likely,” said Grossman.The crook ran back to the vehicle he arrived in, where his accomplice was waiting at the wheel.As the thief opened the driver’s side door, the accomplice jumped into the passenger seat.After the crook shut the door and began to back up the vehicle, the victim could be seen approaching the vehicle and opening the driver’s side door.“He tries to confront the driver and the suspect,” said Grossman.The robber then hit the gas in reverse and the victim was hit by the car door and nearly run over as the duo fled the scene.The car was last seen heading eastbound on Johnson Street. Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – Police have released surveillance footage of a robbery at a Hollywood gas station in hopes the public can assist them with information.Two men could be seen parking a silver four-door Toyota away from the pumps at the Marathon gas station on the 3000 block of Johnson Street, just west of the Interstate 95 overpass, at approximately 9:15 p.m., Tuesday.“One of them, you can see, gets out of the passenger side of the car and kind of walks around a little,” said Hollywood Police spokesperson Miranda Grossman.An interior surveillance camera captured that subject as he stood outside of the convenience store.Cameras captured the moment a victim was changing the oil in his red SUV when the other subject could be seen reaching into the victim’s back pocket and running away with his wallet.Officials said the suspect had befriended the victim during the moments leading up to the theft. Police said the victim was not seriously injured. As of 11 p.m. on Friday, they have not identified him.Investigators describe the man who took the victim’s wallet as having long black hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing a red and white shirt.His accomplice, who also had a beard, had his hair in a bun, a tattoo on the right side of his neck and was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and jeans.“It’s bold and it’s disheartening that you’re out there just changing your oil, trying to get on with your night and these two suspects would do something like this,” said Grossman. “Just always remain vigilant to people around you and your personal belongings.”“Your wallet, you’ve got to put a chain on these, attach it to you or something, wear a pouch in front of you,” said Kendrick.When asked whether the incident makes him angry, the male customer replied, “Kind of, ’cause that’s just what the world is coming to nowadays, so that’s why I say you’ve just got to be prayed up and you’ve got to be safe. Know your surroundings, that’s all.”If you have any information on this theft or you recognize the men involved, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Monday that Moscow would be forced to start developing short and intermediate-range land-based nuclear missiles if the United States started doing so after the demise of a landmark arms control treaty. The United States formally left the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty with Russia on Friday after determining that Moscow was violating the treaty and had already deployed at least one banned type of missile, an accusation the Kremlin denies. Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us The pact banned land-based missiles with a range of between 310 and 3,400 miles (500-5,500 km), reducing the ability of both countries to launch a nuclear strike on short notice. Putin on Monday held a meeting with his Security Council after which he ordered the defence and foreign ministries and Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service to closely monitor any steps the United States took to develop, produce or deploy missiles banned under the defunct treaty. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “If Russia obtains reliable information that the United States has finished developing these systems and started to produce them, Russia will have no option other than to engage in a full-scale effort to develop similar missiles,” Putin said in a statement. In the meantime, he said Russia’s arsenal of air and sea-launched missiles combined with its work on developing hypersonic missiles meant it was well placed to offset any threat emanating from the United States. Advertise With Us It was now essential, he added, for Moscow and Washington to resume arms control talks to prevent what he described as an “unfettered” arms race breaking out. “In order to avoid chaos with no rules, restrictions or laws, we need to once more weigh up all the dangerous consequences and launch a serious and meaningful dialogue free from any ambiguity,” Putin said.

Even before Microsoft embraced homebrew development for its Kinect motion controller, the device was being put to good use outside of controlling Xbox 360 games. But in most cases only a single Kinect sensor has been used in projects. 3Gear Systems decided to use two, and in doing so has created one of the most accurate gesture-based control systems I have ever seen.3Gear Systems is just three people working out of San Francisco with a desire to use our hands as an interaction system. That means putting your fingers, thumbs, and wrists to good use. But in order to do that you need very accurate tracking and hand posing recognition.Using Kinect as a starting point made sense due to how cheap the sensors are, but the standard Kinect SDK only really caters to large movements performed with your body. It isn’t well suited to tracking the position of individual fingers or the rotation of a hand. So 3Gear created its own SDK using computer graphic algorithms and combined it with a database of 3D images that define common hand positions. The end result is an incredibly fast two-hand pose detection system that counts lag in the low milliseconds.3Gear believes its gesture control system has many potential uses including for gaming, 3D medical imaging, 3D computer aided design, and as a way of creating in 3D ready for 3D printing. And they aren’t afraid to share, either. The SDK has been released into public beta for free to allow it to be incorporated into applications.In order for the system to work you need two Kinect sensors, an aluminum frame, and 2 wall mounts. To run the free SDK will require quite a powerful rig with the recommended spec being a Core i7 2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, and a 64-bit copy of Windows 7. OS X and Linux ports are under consideration, but only if 3Gear see enough interest for them to spend time doing the work.Getting setup to play with the system is going to be relatively cheap to do, and therefore it’s likely game development teams and CAD software companies may experiment with it. I also think there’s potential for the 3Gear system to enhance a head-mounted system such as Project Glass or Oculus Rift, but that would require reducing the size of the Kinect motion sensors considerably to allow them to also be head mounted.Read more at 3Gear Systems Blog, via GamesBeat
The news earlier today that Nintendo has given the 3DS a major hardware upgrade and called it the new 3DS and new 3DS XL came as a welcome surprise. A second stick, bigger display on the new 3DS, NFC, micro SDHC, faster wireless, longer battery life, and even a faster CPU all sound like fantastic additions. There’s just one problem: the upgraded CPU will be required to play some new games.That fact has come to light with the announcement that Wii hit Xenoblade is being ported to the new 3DS. I say new 3DS because this game will require the additional processing power of the new CPU Nintendo has chosen to use. This also means it can rely on the second stick and extra shoulder buttons for input. Therefore, if you own an existing 3DS or 2DS, it simply won’t play as far as we know. In other words, if you want to play Xenoblade on 3DS, you’re going to have to purchase the new hardware, too.Another way of looking at this is Nintendo has decided Xenoblade is inaccessible to the 44 million+ gamers who already own a 3DS. And it’s certainly not going to be the only game that’s released as new 3DS-compatible only. The extra horsepower on offer will be utilized by developers, we just have to hope a toggle exists to allow games to run on older hardware, too, albeit with a few graphical/gameplay compromises. However, if a game needs the second stick and extra shoulder buttons, this clearly won’t happen.The new 3DS is a great device, but with it Nintendo is potentially splitting its own handheld market. A lot will depend on just how many developers choose more performance over more potential players. Hopefully those 44 million devices already on the market act as a very big reason not to choose performance.With that bad news out of the way, it seems as if Xenoblade on the new 3DS is going to be a great port. As you can see in the video below, you can’t really see much difference from the Wii version.

Since then, seven other quakes were reported over the weekend by the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica’s (Ovsicori) automatic system.By 2 a.m. Monday, two more quakes (magnitudes 3.1 and 3.6) had shaken the same area, according to Ovsicori. “Some of the quakes are caused by the subduction [sliding] of the Cocos plate under the Caribbean plate,” volcanologist Marino Protti said.Five quakes had their epicenters near Costa Rican shores, while a strong magnitude-6.3 quake felt across the country at 9:15 p.m. Sunday originated on Panama’s Pacific coast, caused by a collision of the Cocos and Nazca plates, Protti said.Ovsicori experts are reviewing records from their automatic-detection systems to confirm the epicenters. No damage has been reported so far. Facebook Comments

may need additional support accessing healthcare services (Source: Pixabay) Top News A recent study conducted at the University College London found that women with dementia have fewer visits to the doctors receive less health monitoring and take more potentially harmful medication than men with dementia The study published in Age and Ageing also found that only half of all dementia patients had a documented annual review even though general practitioners are offered financial incentives to carry these out Women were found to be at particular risk of staying on antipsychotic or sedative medication for longer Watch What Else Is Making News This might be because they have fewer appointments where their treatment can be reviewed “As women tend to live longer than men they are more likely to live alone without a family carer to help them access healthcare” said Claudia Cooper who led the research Adding “Perhaps because of this they are more at risk of missing out on medical help that might help them stay well for longer We found that women were more likely to be on psychotropic drugs – sedatives or anti-psychotics -which can be harmful in the long term and may not be appropriate Women tended to stay on such drugs for longer perhaps because they have fewer check-ups to see if the drugs were still needed” Women with dementia who live on their own may need additional support accessing healthcare services “We should ensure GPs have the resources to proactively engage with these patients and review their condition regularly to make sure their treatment plan including any drugs is appropriate Improving access to healthcare and reducing psychotropic drug use in people with dementia especially women could help them to live well with dementia for longer” said cooper The researchers analysed the records of 68000 dementia patients and 259000 people without dementia to compare their access to healthcare services using The Health Improvement Network (THIN) database Overall people with dementia received less medical care than those without even though they are more vulnerable to physical and mental illnesses “Dementia can cause a wide range of physical complications including difficulties swallowing and mobility problems” said Dr Cooper Adding “People with dementia are particularly susceptible to malnutrition as they may have difficulties eating preparing food or remembering to eat Previous research has shown that up to 45 percent of dementia patients experience clinically significant weight loss which can lead to further physical problems and frailty However despite this high risk less than half of dementia patients are currently receiving an annual weight check-up The good news is that things seem to be improving: only 24 percent of patients had their weight monitored in 2002 compared with 43 percent in 2013” Improvements may be linked to the government’s National Dementia Strategy which launched in 2009 Around the time this was launched GP surgeries were offered additional financial incentives through the NHS Quality and Outcomes Framework to review dementia patients annually However the latest study suggests that there is still more work to be done to ensure that people with dementia particularly women are able to access the services they need For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App

pouring salt on our wounds Muslims have suffered periodic mob furywhich has gone unpunished by the statesince 1947 The logic of the BJPs existence appears to be hatred for Muslimstraced back to Savarkar and Golwalkar The Congresson which we are forced to relyis only interested in our votes It has no interest in our socio-educational and economic uplift The very nature of politics is such that a few Muslims whether in the BJP or the Congress or even in socialist parties like the Samajwadi Party act as agents for the communityand siphon off the benefits for their own selves The

entirely worthy motive for encouraging writers to answer their critics is that it makes for excellent theatre Writers who reply to reviews are invariably angry (The flattered happy ones keep their satisfaction to themselves) An angry writer’s tirade gives the lie to the surface placidity of literary life and reveals the passionate enmities that roil beneath Think of Martin Amis’s response to Tibor Fischer’s attack on his novel Yellow Dog: “Tibor Fischer is a creep and a wretch Oh yeah: and a fat-arse” Or Alain de Botton’s foot-stamping at Caleb Crain’s review of his book The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work: “I will hate you till the day I die and wish you nothing but ill will in every career move you make” Or Niall Ferguson’s protest against Pankaj Mishra’s review of Civilisation: “If he won’t apologise for calling me a racist I will persecute him until he does” Exhilarating as these bursts of fury are for the general public they are never I think very salutary for the writers themselves Even when a writer troubles himself to engage in extended debate with a critic it is his wrath not his arguments that leaves the lasting impression And his retaliation however well founded inevitably helps to advertise the alleged calumnies to which he objects (How many people were inspired to look up Caleb Crain’s review for the first time after hearing about it from de Botton) It may require intense discipline to stay silent when you are convinced that your work has been wronged but the more unfair and meanspirited the criticism the stronger the case for denying it what Margaret Thatcher used to call “the oxygen of publicity” Perhaps the most persuasive incentive for restraint in these matters is the fact that aggrieved authors so rarely get the tone of their retaliations right Rage impairs style I have sat up more nights than I care to admit mentally composing responses to critics who I felt had treated me poorly It is easy in the delusion-prone small hours to imagine that I am constructing brilliant and devastating ripostes But come morning the inventions of night-time are invariably revealed as peevish self-important whines A truly effective answer to a critic — one that isn’t hobbled by grandiosity or pettiness — should be funny It’s hard however to summon up persuasively witty insouciant prose when you are burning with offended pride You either surrender to childish insult (“X is a moron”) or you embarrass yourself with industrial-strength sarcasm (“Loath as I am to question the exquisite judgement of X I feel that I must point out…”) Either way you end up sounding like a dope It should be noted that this problem of tone is not avoided by having your buddies write letters of complaint in your stead Friends high on loyalty and outrage unencumbered by considerations of modesty are even more susceptible to humourless pomposity than you Two recent letters to The New York Review of Books protesting Terry Castle’s review of Siri Hustvedt’s novel The Blazing World are a case in point The authors both professional associates of Hustvedt are gallant enough in their intentions but they display such pursed-mouth solemnity such dogged resistance to the idea of a joke that one can’t help feeling Hustvedt would have been better off without their support Sometimes of course an author cannot stop himself from exploding no matter how hard he tries The provocation is too great the longing for restitution too intense He loses his temper bashes out something vicious or pathetic and presses send Even then he must not despair Art is long and life is quite long too There will be other books other nasty critics and with them a myriad of other opportunities to maintain a dignified silence Heller is the author of three novels: ‘Everything You Know’;

cells say scientists who identified mutations in the deadly virus that developed during the recent epidemic in West Africa By the end of the Ebola virus disease epidemic in 2016 more than 28000 people had been infected with the virus and more than 11000 people died from Ebola virus disease Watch What Else Is Making News To study whether the virus might have changed genetically in response to infection of such large numbers of people the researchers used publicly available Ebola virus genomic sequences to track virus mutations They found that mutations of the gene that encodes the Ebola virus glycoprotein increased the virus’ ability to infect cells of humans and other primates “Ebola virus is thought to circulate in an unknown animal reservoir and to only rarely cross over into people” said Jeremy Luban from the University of Massachusetts Medical School in the US “When the virus does cross over the effect has been devastating to those people who are infected Until recently the human disease outbreaks have been short lived and the virus has had little opportunity to adapt genetically to the human host” said Luban By increasing infectivity in human cells it is possible that these mutations increased Ebola virus spread during the outbreak “If you introduce a virus into a new host like humans it may need to adapt to better infect and spread in that host” said Jonathan Ball from the University of Nottingham “One particular mutation studied by both groups emerged early in the outbreak just as case numbers vastly increased and soon became the dominant virus type circulating in the outbreak” said ball The Ebola virus mutations did not increase the ability of Ebola virus to infect cells from other mammalian species including fruit bats the presumed natural host of Ebola virus “We found that as Ebola virus was spreading from human to human it apparently didn’t have to worry about maintaining its infectivity in bats” Ball said “It’s important to understand how these viruses evolve during outbreaks” said Luban “By doing so we will be better prepared should these viruses spill over to humans in the future” he said For all the latest Lifestyle News download

strain A year later the wedge came out in the open The rebel’s allies The chances of a militant surviving after he defects or is expelled from an outfit are minimal In Kashmir the militant landscape is uneven The militants operating in South Kashmir are mostly homegrown and many of them have pictures circulated on social media networks In the North however mostly foreign militants operate and their photographs do not surface on social media They remain anonymous like Najar According to sources in the Indian Army the militant presence is least in central Kashmir that includes Srinagar city The data provided by a senior army official puts the number of militants in North Kashmir at about 94 including 65 foreign militants operating under LeT six under Jaish-e-Mohammad 20 local boys with Hizbul and three with theAl-Badroutfit In central Kashmir there are as many 12 LeT militants operating in areas around city outskirts and in the vicinity of Dachigam belt South Kashmir has the highest number of home-grown militants with as many as 120 militants operating under Hizbul command At least 12 are believed to be with LeT and they are all foreign militants commanded by most wanted militant Abu Dujana The army officials also believe at least two militants have joined the Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen(TuM) outfit and have made several attempts to woo recruits towards the outfit in order to revive it TuM was first formed in the year 1990 by Yunus Khan and Sajjad Mir both residents of Srinagar Yunus according to the security official was a close aide of AbdullahTairi a former chief of Jamiat-e-Ahl hadith movement in Kashmir The outfit did not survive long but attempts to revive it were made in 2009-10 According to a security official a former militant who made attempts to revive it was killed in a traffic accident outside Srinagar in Panthachowk The fresh recruits in TuM ranks are seen with apprehension among the security establishment to revive an outfit which draws most of its ideological base fromAhl-e-hadith traditions like LeT and the global Salafi ideologies like Al-Qaeda and Abu Sayyaf Najar was left with no allies as he was denounced openly by the Hurriyat leadership

Hurriyat as Target The Hurriyat leadership then alleged that the attacks and killings were being carried out at the behest of Indian agencies and were widely condemned Similar mysterious killings were carried out this year as well but the condemnations were mostly reserved The United Jehad Council (UJC) however a few days after Lt Umer Fayaz was abducted and killed in Kulgam stated that the militant outfits have not carried out the killing but has been perpetrated at the behest of Indian agencies At the same time Zakir came out lambasting the separatist leadership bringing the political leadership and the militant at loggerheads like it was at the time of Najar In his video message released earlier last month Zakir threatened police informers The young militant in a low-resolution unverified video clip warned about a coming ‘war’ A few days ago in his recent video statements he quit Hizbul after facing abacklashfrom the militant command based in Pakistan for his anti-Hurriyat

was targeting a police official said individuals on his ‘list’ No one including the Hizbul command in Pakistan and the separatist camp in Kashmir believed that the killings were as random as they appeared in the beginning But the killing of a Hurriyat activist by LeI created suspicions on the outfit and their leader even among the security grid the official said The UJC led by Syed Salahuddin who heads the conglomerate of all militant outfits operating in Kashmir rejected Najar’s offensive against informers Senior separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani who leads prominent pro-freedom political conglomerate Hurriyat (G) also ‘condemned’ these killings Najar became an eye-sore for the Hurriyat leadership who launched a tirade against these killings calling them state-sponsored "For us he could have never been linked to working against the interests of people of freedom" a Hurriyat insider said Even as the newly formed outfit claimed in its statement issued to local papers in the Valley that the attack on telecom network is justified as they are a part of the "conspiracy" that has weakened "armed resistance" and affected militants especially of outfits like LeT and Jaish-e-Mohammad the security officials believed it was merely a ‘diversion’ Najar’s anonymity gave him an advantage over the security grid He was able to move from North Kashmir to other parts easily

the city in the vicinity of Karan Nagar and Shaheed Gunj The attacks happened again on telecom installations but according to security officials was a part of his ‘diversion’ tactics "Najar’s
