South Florida real estate on climate change: ‘Que Sera, Sera’

first_img Share via Shortlink Tags Climate ChangeResidential Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink (Photo illustration by The Real Deal)Real estate is famously all about location. And in Florida, climate change is expected to put some of the toniest locations underwater over the coming decades — either permanently or during storm-driven flooding.Insurers are taking notice and hiking rates accordingly. Developers and homebuyers, however, seem oblivious to the threat.Florida’s geography makes it vulnerable to storms from both the Atlantic and the Gulf, where warmer water is increasing their size and intensity, and rising sea levels make storm surges more devastating along the low-lying coast. And hurricanes aren’t the only problem, as the amount of rain dumped by even normal storms has been increasing steadily for decades, leading to more flooding even in inland areas. Yet people keep moving to the Sunshine State. Despite the looming threat of the next big hurricane, flooding on a sunny day and maps depicting much of the coast underwater in a few decades, residential construction is struggling to keep up with demand, and the prices of waterfront homes keep climbing.ADVERTISEMENTBuyers do periodically bring up the question of climate change, said Jay Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman Florida. “But it’s really just that: a question,” he said.Water under the bridgeThe last hurricane season was the most active and fifth-costliest on record, with 30 named storms and 13 hurricanes, six of them Category 3 or higher. The east coast of Florida was largely spared, though, while the Gulf Coast states suffered significant damage. That doesn’t appear to have put a damper on deals.Between July and January, residential sales volume hit nearly $33 billion in the tri-county region of South Florida, a 47 percent increase year-over-year, according to data from Analytics Miami. Buyers from the Northeast, Midwest and California came in droves, many of them closing on $1 million-plus properties.“Thankfully, we’ve had two [hurricane] seasons now where we’ve escaped wind damage and flooding,” Parker said. “It’s really important for the overall comfort of our market.” With commercial investment, major asset managers and debt and equity providers are pulling back from the cities most vulnerable to climate-driven disasters, but the same can’t be said for residential real estate, especially in the Miami area. Buyers are more focused on the major tax savings, cost of living and quality of life that come with living in Florida, especially during a pandemic that kept people inside their homes and shuttered businesses around the country. And despite some states reinstituting business closures, Florida is still open.Buyers don’t usually consider extraordinary events like flooding when purchasing a home — and that goes for markets beyond South Florida as well, said Ana Bozovic, founder of Analytics Miami.She pointed to the percentage of New York City homes in flood zones and how that has “never deterred appreciation of New York City properties and people moving there.”“Climate change is not high on the scale of what people are considering when they’re relocating,” Bozovic said.No safety netSome Florida residents, however, are selling their homes because they can’t afford the rising cost of flood insurance, which certain lenders require if a property is in a designated flood zone. Others don’t want to experience another deadly hurricane, or are concerned about the rising cost of living. That’s the case for some of financial planner David Treece’s clients. One who lived in Key Biscayne decided after Hurricane Irma hit in 2017 to sell her waterfront home and rent elsewhere, Treece said. Other clients are opting to move to less expensive parts of Florida. Doug Jones, managing partner of South Florida-based JAG Insurance Group, said pricing isn’t affected only by local climate disasters because the companies are insuring properties around the world. “We went through a 10-year period with no major storms, and prices continued to go up,” Jones said. “They’re global companies. They still insured wildfires in California or tsunamis in Asia, so they’re taking losses around the world.”Insurers will open and close ZIP codes on an almost weekly basis, especially in Miami Beach and other coastal communities, leaving homeowners with fewer options.Even beyond risky areas, Jones said, major companies such as Allstate and State Farm have pulled back from writing new policies across the whole region. “We happen to be in a time now where we have very few carriers willing to offer insurance in South Florida,” he said.The more expensive a property is, the fewer insurance options there are. And every year, the premiums increase relentlessly — unlike the cost of a typical long-term mortgage. And that’s a mismatch Jones does not expect to last.“I’m surprised we don’t see more lenders turning down 30-year mortgages,” Jones said. “I can see that being a problem down the road on an older home where there’s a good chance water is going to walk right in the front door.” North Bay Road in Miami Beach after a rainstorm Feb. 16With the influx in out-of-state buyers, many of them don’t realize how expensive insurance can be in Florida until after they make an offer on a house, he said. “They’re absolutely shell-shocked when it comes to the price they’re paying for insurance. These folks are buying the largest properties on the water, which makes them the least desirable to insurance companies,” Jones said.Sean Harper, CEO of Kin Insurance, said the cost to insure a residential property in Florida is double the national average. His company prices policies in part by looking at when a home was built or whether it was updated recently.As a result, Kin may write cheaper policies for homes in the same ZIP code if they have a new roof or were built in the past 10 years, since new waterfront homes are built at a higher elevation than their older neighbors.Just days after Hurricane Irma, cryptocurrency investor Mike Komaransky and his wife closed on a waterfront home in Coconut Grove, a neighborhood that was largely flooded by the storm surge. But the $7.6 million bayfront mansion was built about 40 feet above sea level, with the living area beginning on the second floor.In pockets of South Florida where flooding is common, residential sales are affected, but it is not often a primary reason for homeowners to sell, said Sebastian Jaramillo, a partner with Miami-based law firm Wolfe Pincavage. Jaramillo said that some condo owners are leaving areas such as Brickell, where people can be seen kayaking down Brickell Avenue after a heavy rainstorm. But those owners could also be moving further inland just because they want more space, he said.What, me worry?For brokers and many buyers, climate change just isn’t a near-term concern, despite the many projections forecasting a partially underwater Florida. Texas is in a similar (leaking) boat. The Lone Star State is also experiencing a boom in home sales, has mostly warm weather and no state income tax — but also plenty of hurricanes. Ironically, the fact that these regions have long been buffeted by the very sort of extreme weather that climate change will make worse may actually lead their markets to downplay the threat.“No one has told me they’re not buying here because of sea-level rise or hurricanes,” said Ron Shuffield, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty in Coral Gables. “A lot of other places are having some pretty crazy weather. Our market has always had hurricanes. We’ve learned how to deal with them.”last_img read more

Women-only scholarship opened to all genders

first_imgA fellowship previously exclusive to women was made to be availible to all genders after it was deemed illegally discrimanatory last term.The Oxford Council, the university’s senior administrative committee asserted that the award was “discriminatory on the grounds of gender”. A spokesperson for the university cited “complying with legislation” as the primary motivation.The Joanna Randall-MacIver junior research fellowship, established in the 1930s for women in the humanities, is worth £46,800 over two years. The amendment received approval on November 19 2018.The move has provoked a backlash from former recipients. Elizabeth Cullingford, now Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, condemned the change: “There have been ‘men only’ stipulations on most Oxford emoluments for roughly the last thousand years,” she said. “Women, who only became full members of the university in 1920, still have a bit of catching up to do.”But Professor Cullingford conceded that, although regrettable, she would accept the change if “the law requires it.”Another previous recipient, who wished to remain anonymous, also opposed the change: “It’s sad to see the struggle against discrimination being invoked to justify such a move. Men have never been underrepresented among Oxford’s academic staff. Women still are.”Louise Richardson, Oxford’s Vice Chancellor, announced the amendment on November 13 2018. Usually, revisions to university legislation require the backing of 20 academics. But A study this year by the Equality Challenge Unit revealed that women make up 56.5% of undergraduate students but account for just 45.3% of UK academic staff. Many academics support positive action schemes to rebalance gender inequality.Dr Xiaofan Amy Li, a former recipient, said: “I do not think that a women-only scheme is discriminatory towards men, precisely because existing gender bias in society already puts women at a disadvantage.”She also added: “nevertheless, ethnicity bias is a much bigger problem than gender bias in academia and the percentage of BAME academic staff is very low. If the Randall-MacIver fellowship can be opened up to male BAME candidates, that will be a very welcome move.”Women began studying at Oxford in 1870, but were not granted degrees until 1920.The fellowship is funded by the estate of British-born archaeologist David Randall-MacIver. It’s named after his wife Joanna Randall- MacIver, who died in 1932, and was established for “women graduates only.” Notable recipients include archaeologist Georgina Herrman OBE and the Tate’s current Head of Art Historical Research Jennifer Mundy. reforms billed as “administrative changes” can be fast-tracked by the Oxford Council. Proposals can then be opposed by the Oxford Congregation, made up of all Oxford academics, if two letters are sent to Gill Aitken, the university’s Registrar, which in this case were not received.Oxford responded: “Under the 2010 Equality Act, employers are not normally permitted to advertise or recruit to posts open to one gender only. As a consequence, Oxford Uni- versity has changed the terms of a number of historically-created posts so they are no longer gender-specific. The Joanna Randall-MacIver Fellowship is the most recent example.”“The University is very much aware of the lack of women in academic roles and is work- ing to end the imbalance as a priority. Several initiatives to promote equality, including pro- fessional development programmes for female academics, are now well-established and beginning to show an impact.”Employment law regarding academic fellowships is ambiguous. Fellows are technically students, undertaking doctoral research, but receive a stipend and housing allowance of £23,400 per annum. The Equality Act 2010 deems it unlawful to discriminate against gender in posts of employment.Partner at Winckworth Sherwood law firm, Bettina Bender, concluded that the fellowship did constitute a position of employment: “it would appear that the research fellow may at the very least qualify for worker status even if they do not in fact qualify as an employee,” she said. “The Equality Act 2010 and the prohibition on positive discrimination of female applicants would therefore apply.”last_img read more

Worcester Provost Resigns

first_imgThis resignation follows recent changes in the leadership of St Catherine’s College, The Queen’s College and Christ Church. In a message to his ‘WorcesterFamily’ on the 14th March, the Provost cited the “toll on familylife” and a “slow[ing] of academic productivity” as reasons for his departure,as well as reduced opportunities to teach. Professor Bate stated that he “feel[s] his work at Worcesteris done”, making reference to recent successes seen at the college. These includethe completion of the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre and the Tercentenary Campaign,the latter of which has raised over £100 million to “endow Worcester for thenext three hundred years”. In addition, Bate thanked his wife, biographer Paula Byrne, for her ‘unstinting support’, saying that “it is now time for me to take a back seat, and give her support, as she takes forward her important work for mental health and wellbeing, especially among young people, through her ReLit Foundation.” The role will be taken up in the interim by Dr Kate Tunstall. Due to take up the role of Vice-Provost just a month before Professor Bate’s departure, the twenty-year French Fellow has been selected by the Governing Body to hold the position, with the current Vice-Provost extending his tenure. center_img The Provost of Worcester College, Professor Sir JonathanBate, has announced his resignation from the post, effective from the 12thSeptember 2019. He went on to specify that future projects may entail “Shakespearean scholarship and performance…making the case for the public value of the humanities and… leading an initiative to bring a humanities contribution to the global crisis of sustainability.” Awarded a Knighthood in 2015 for services to literary scholarship and higher education, the Provost expressed a desire to “return to academic work” over the next decade. He will also remain a member of the college, having been elected to a Senior Research Fellowship. last_img read more

As Living Memory Fades, Our Words Keep D-Day’s Sacrifice Alive

first_imgSeventy-five years have passed, but the heroism of the men who stormed the beaches of Normandy still resonates as strongly as it did that June Tuesday in 1944 when America awoke to the news.This will almost certainly be the last time our country will be able to commemorate such a milestone anniversary while the heroes who participated in the D-Day invasion are still here with us on Earth. Even the very youngest World War II veterans are now well into their 90s.The country and the world are blessed that more than 180 D-Day veterans were able to join President Trump and other world leaders in France. The living memory of what it means to fight and die “to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity” — as President Roosevelt put it when he spoke to the nation for the first time following the landings — is rapidly fading.That memory is not merely of a single, bloody day in 1944, or even of the Second World War more broadly. It is the living memory of a generation whose struggle forged the world we enjoy today. As Living Memory Fades, Our Words Keep D-Day’s Sacrifice Alive But the ranks of those who listened to those words live while the outcome of that struggle hung in the balance are rapidly dwindling.The National WWII Museum estimates that there are fewer than half a million American World War II veterans left, out of the more than 16 million who answered the call of duty three-quarters of a century ago. By the time of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings, the museum projects that there will be fewer than 100,000.FOOTNOTE: The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of LinkEmailShare President Roosevelt defined that struggle for the GI Generation, calling on them to “conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies” and to “lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace[,] a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men.” TOWNHALLSean Spicerlast_img read more

Coca-Cola Racing Family roundup

first_imgWelcome back to Victory Lane, Greg Biffle.The veteran driver secured his first win of the season Sunday, winning the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway. It was his first win since, well, the fall race at Michigan, giving the driver back-to-back wins at the 2-mile track.Tony Stewart joined Biffle in the top five for the second consecutive week. The Stewart-Haas Racing owner finished fifth.Joey Logano finished ninth, giving the Coca-Cola Racing Family three drivers in the top 10. And while Danica Patrick missed out on the top 10, she had her best showing since April.A roundup on the Coca-Cola Racing Family in order of how they finished at Michigan: Tony Stewart (No. 14)Stewart-Haas Racing, Chevrolet Recap: What an ascent from three-time champion Tony Stewart. In 20th place less than a month ago, he’s now cracked the top 10 in the standings. Even if he falls out of the top 10, he is in good standing for a Wild Card berth to the Chase due to his win at Dover. Stewart’s fifth-place showing at Michigan — which came in a back-up car — was his third consecutive top-five and fourth consecutive top-10. There are 11 races to go before the field for the Chase is set.Quotable: “I think we definitely got a lot of luck there at the end, but we’ll definitely take it because we haven’t had much to this point in the year. A caution came out at the right time, and we got a good restart. Two of the guys ahead of us — one had fuel trouble and one had a tire issue — so we got some breaks going our way. It was a good weekend for me (after) putting us in a hole as far as I did on Friday crashing our primary car. But I’m proud of these guys, and I’m definitely proud of the effort this week. I thought our guys did a good job.”His standing: Stewart is 10th in the standings with 417 points. Outlook: Stewart’s time has been gritty all year. Now that it has a bit of luck, can anyone slow the veteran’s chase to the Chase? Joey Logano (No. 22)Penske Racing, FordRecap: Again, Logano found himself in the top 10 following Sunday’s race (he finished ninth). It’s the fourth consecutive top-10 for the driver, who has worked his to 14th in the standings, in a pack of drivers who are separated by precious few points. Logano’s early-season issues seem to be behind him.Quotable: “Of course I think everyone knows that this Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion was much better than ninth today. So yeah, in that sense it is always frustrating. However, that’s good when you can finish in the top 10 and still be frustrated with it. When you are getting to the point to where you finish up there and you expect more, that means you are hitting your stride. All-in-all, it was a really good day. We ran strong, we led laps and we proved we were a car to contend with this afternoon. Sure we would have liked to have finished in the top three, which is where I think we could have run, but I’ll take another top 10. It was a good points day for sure.”His standing: Logano is 14th in the standings with 405 points. Outlook: Logano has just four starts at the road course in Sonoma, and he’s done well the past two years. In 2011, he was on the pole and finished sixth. Last year, he finished 10th. Such a showing at a tricky course in 2013 could vault him into the top 12. Greg Biffle (No. 16)Roush Fenway Racing, Ford Recap: One week after his runner-up finish at Pocono Raceway, Biffle found himself in Victory Lane for the first time this season. And what a trip it’s been. The No. 16 team struggled for a month early in the season, falling out of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup picture. With a victory to fall back on, Biffle can’t quite breathe easy, but at eighth in the standings, he appears to be in good shape. The win Sunday was also the 1,000th for manufacturer Ford in NASCAR.Quotable: “Yeah, it’s definitely a special day. It was Father’s Day, my first, Emma’s first Victory Lane today, so that was pretty special for me. You know, we certainly didn’t probably have the fastest car today at times and kept working on it, kept making slight adjustments on pit stops, and you know, track position is huge with our car, and it’s been well documented that we feel like we’ve been a little bit behind this season. We’ve been gaining on it. It looks like we’re well on our way to getting some speed back in these cars, and continue to work on them and figure them out and get them to be just a little bit better yet. It was fun racing with those guys.”His standing: Biffle is eighth in the standings with 443 points. Outlook: Biffle is known as a strong race on 1.5-mile tracks and up. That’s true. But he may get somewhat of a bad rap on road courses. This week’s race is at Sonoma Raceway, a 1.99-mile road course in northern California. Biffle was seventh there last year and has four top-10s in the past seven races at the track. Biffle wins at Michigan; three Coca-Cola Racing Family drivers in top 10center_img Danica Patrick (No. 10)Stewart-Haas Racing, Chevrolet Recap: Patrick typically does well on wide, flat, fast tracks. Sunday at Michigan was no different. Patrick finished 13th on the 2-mile Michigan track, her best showing since finishing 12th at Martinsville — a different type of track altogether — in April. Crew chief Tony Gibson has told Patrick that she’s been the bug for a while, and her time as the windshield was coming. Is it here?Quotable: “I think we caught some breaks out there. Yellows definitely helped us be able to get track position as far as closing up the gaps and being able to pit a few times. We tried to take right side (tires) and get track position early on. It just didn’t go well, and we just hadn’t gotten ourselves to a good place with the car that I could carry the speed that I needed to run with the (pack). It didn’t work out so well. We worked on it and got it better. At the end of the race, the last run was the best run I felt as far as the balance of the car, which I was surprised because we had fallen off a little bit at the end of the run before. This will hopefully get everyone’s head up a little bit, and we will go on. I think we have been strong lately. We just needed to have days like today where we finished it off.”Her standing: Patrick is 27th in the standings with 277 points. Outlook: Her experience at fast, big tracks won’t help this weekend. Patrick is headed to Sonoma to get a taste of road-course racing. Ryan Newman (No. 39)Stewart-Haas Racing, Chevrolet Recap: Good pit strategy worked to Newman’s favor last week. This week at Michigan, it was plain, old bad luck that cost him. A great pit stop gained Newman 10 spots, and he was in seventh with less than 30 laps to go. A flat tire wrecked Newman’s chances. The driver felt his tire go flat during the caution, and so he came back to pit road again. The crew put on new wheels, and Newman didn’t lose a lap, but he came out of pit road in 25th place.Quotable: “That was a tough break for our Quicken Loans team. When we came out seventh after that pit stop, and we finally had some track position and the clean air that we needed, I really thought that we were going to ‘Bring It Home’ for Quicken Loans and get another top-five finish and pay five people’s mortgages for a month. I really wanted to have a strong run for Quicken Loans in their race, in their backyard, so I’m pretty disappointed right now.”His standing: Newman is 18th in the standings with 389 points. Outlook: His top-five streak snapped at Michigan, Newman must look toward the future. It looks likely he’ll need a win, and possibly more than one, to qualify for the Chase. Denny Hamlin (No. 11)Joe Gibbs Racing, Toyota Recap: Hamlin lost the points position he gained last week following a 30th-place outing in which his No. 11 Toyota was a mess on the slick Michigan surface. Hamlin, though, was in the spotlight for a good reason. To honor the life of Jason Leffler, who died in a sprint-car crash earlier in the week, Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota underwent a retro paint scheme to have a similar look as the car Leffler drove in 2005.Quotable: “It was an idea that I had to pay tribute to Jason (Leffler) in today’s race. We had become friends over the past several years and had the same circle of friends, so it meant a lot to me to honor his memory. I have to thank JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) and FedEx for letting us do this — Jason was there at the start with FedEx joining JGR back in 2005 and there are still about five crew members on the team that were on the team with Jason so I know it was real special to all of them. Also want to thank NASCAR for letting us change the wrap on the car on such short notice — just wanted to help pay tribute to Jason.”His standing: Hamlin is 26th in the standings with 299 points. Outlook: A 14-point day isn’t what Hamlin needs. Even if he picks up a win soon, he’s still 85 points behind 20th-place Kurt Busch.last_img read more

Lights, cameras, reaction

first_imgIn a hidden basement room in the Littauer Building, M.P.A. student Ashley Orynich was preparing for her close-up. Armed with talking points and a dazzling smile (she’s also a newly minted dentist), she took a seat in front of a large camera, ready to win over the imaginary Bill O’Reilly or Rachel Maddow on the other side of the lens.The leaders of that day’s “On-Camera Interview Basics” workshop, Molly Lanzarotta, senior communications officer at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), and Doug Gavel, HKS associate director of media relations and public affairs, warned her that the questions — which Lanzarotta would read from the other side of a soundproof door — wouldn’t be easy.The lights dimmed, and Lanzarotta dusted Orynich’s face with powder.“Visualize that the little orange light is your friend,” Lanzarotta advised.In a world where every candidate, nonprofit director, or government official is never more than a blog post or a YouTube video away from capturing an audience (or from a potentially ruinous flub), HKS students have learned they need to embrace the spotlight. And to gain the skills they need to communicate effectively, they’ll need more than just the comfort of a friendly blinking light.Enter the HKS Communications Program, a long-standing resource that offers elective courses, one-on-one writing consultations, and workshops like the one Orynich used to practice interviewing.HKS recently surveyed its graduates five years out of the School, asking alumni what they found most valuable about their education. The survey found that the tools alumni say they use most often in the real world were their communication skills.The finding was surprising, given the fact that communications classes aren’t mandatory for any of the School’s degree programs. But the results speak to the popularity and utility of the program, which existed for more than 20 years under the guidance of Marie Danziger, a lecturer on public policy who taught the beloved “Arts of Communication” course. When Danziger decided to retire last year, the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy took over the program.The move to a permanent home is just one of several ways HKS is beefing up the program, said Jeffrey Seglin, the new director. The program also hired another full-time lecturer, Luciana Herman, who joins the ranks of several adjuncts and two writing consultants.“While the students who come to the Kennedy School are amazingly diverse and talented, many of them have never had strong writing programs or a lot of experience writing or speaking professionally or even dealing with digital media or technology,” Seglin said. “They have expertise in their field, but not necessarily in writing or public speaking.”That dictum seems to hold true across many professional schools, if HKS enrollment is any indication. Students from the Graduate School of Design, Harvard Business School, Harvard School of Public Health, and elsewhere regularly cross-register for HKS communications classes, according to Seglin.“Regardless of where you are in your career, it’s never a bad idea to work on these skills,” he said. “The print world may be shrinking a bit, but [students] see the online world expanding. It’s an opportunity for them to get their voices out there, and they’re in the prime market for doing it.”While there aren’t hard numbers on how many students take advantage of the offerings, Seglin said the communications program offers 60 to 70 workshops per academic year and six or seven elective courses per semester. The classes routinely fill, with a long wait list.Workshops are first come, first served. One recent evening, Holly Weeks’ workshop on “Giving Bad News Well” drew a curious crowd that overflowed from a small classroom in the Littauer Building. The premise was irresistible, for masochists at least: a chance to practice speaking before an audience that hates your guts.“This is a safe environment,” Weeks, an adjunct lecturer in public policy at HKS, told her students. “I hope you’ll rise to the occasion and give people a really nightmarish experience.”Federico Cuadra Del Carmen, an M.P.A. student pursuing a joint law degree at Northwestern University, went into Weeks’ workshop with a solid public speaking background. He had competed in Model United Nations in high school and college, then did communications and marketing for a grassroots nonprofit in Nicaragua.But when he got up in front of the group — in the guise of a candidate running against Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega — the crowd’s convincing heckling quickly threw him off course. Weeks stopped him midsentence.“You’re following us, and we’re not going in a direction you want to be going in,” she told him. Refine your key points and stick to them, she advised.“Straight repetition is not necessarily a bad thing as long as you’re saying what you need to say,” Weeks said.With just a few tweaks to his language — lots of “your” and “our”; no “but” statements; simple, forceful sentences that “start, go forward, and end” — Del Carmen quickly regained control of the crowd, making compelling points about Nicaragua’s failing schools and the need for more jobs.“Classes like these, for people who have some kind of background in politics, may be undervalued or overlooked,” Del Carmen said afterward. “But what these classes offer are strategies for how to improve or polish the skills you already have.”The workshop made him even more eager to take “Arts of Communication” in the spring —  if he makes the cut, that is. “I couldn’t get in this semester,” he said.last_img read more

Microgrids, renewables should be priorities in Puerto Rico grid rebuild

first_imgMicrogrids, renewables should be priorities in Puerto Rico grid rebuild FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享USA Today:Visitors to Casa Pueblo, a community center in this mountain hamlet, can tour the solar-powered meeting rooms, listen in on the solar-powered radio station or catch a documentary at the solar-powered movie theater. Later, they could lunch at one of Puerto Rico’s first fully solar-powered restaurants just down the street. On an island gripped by energy anxiety, Casa Pueblo is a calming oasis.Hurricane Maria blasted through Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, 2017, battering the island’s outdated power grid and plunging the U.S. commonwealth into darkness for nearly a year. The lack of power has been a major challenge for Puerto Ricans recovering from the storm and was a key factor in widespread fatalities after the hurricane. The death toll from the storm is 2,975, based on estimates from a study by George Washington University researchers.But in Puerto Rico, restoring power has been a slower, much bigger project that entails, in many cases, completely rebuilding what was a fragile system to begin with. Federal officials have spent more than $3 billion to end the longest blackout in U.S. history and return the Puerto Rican power grid to pre-storm conditions. Now comes the long, tough task of improving the system – at a cost of billions of more federal dollars – to avoid future massive blackouts. How the grid is rebuilt will be a key question in Puerto Rico’s recovery from Maria.At the center of the island’s grid rebuild effort is what to do with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or PREPA, an agency racked by allegations of corruption and $9 billion in debt. Gov. Ricardo Rosselló has proposed privatizing parts of the electrical system, including its oil-powered generation plants. Other suggestions include switching the system to natural gas.But these plans don’t include a clear path to renewable energy sources, leaving the system vulnerable to future storms, said Cathy Kunkel, an analyst with the Cleveland-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, who co-wrote a July study on this issue. An improved power grid in Puerto Rico should include “microgrids,” or clusters of customers around the island who could disconnect from the larger system if a storm hits and generate power on their own, she said. That strategy would begin to shift the power grid away from its reliance on oil and toward renewables.Such a massive shift would be difficult, costly and time-consuming but not impossible, Kunkel said. Lawmakers in Hawaii, an archipelago of 1.4 million residents, passed a series of energy bills three years ago directing the state’s utilities to switch to 100 percent renewable energy resources by 2045. “Obviously, doing that tomorrow for the whole island [of Puerto Rico] is not going to happen,” she said. “But it’s smart to prioritize investment in that direction, which is not what the government of Puerto Rico is doing.”More: $3 billion already spent to end longest blackout in U.S. history. Could renewable energy help Puerto Rico?last_img read more

Costa Rican Security Officials and U.S. Border Patrol Train Together to Improve Security

first_imgBy Dialogo July 14, 2015 EL Chapo is more clever than the whole Honduran Army. The U.S. training focuses on patrolling rural areas, operating border posts, providing first aid, using the latest fiber optic equipment to conduct vehicle checks, and a skill that is becoming increasingly important — swimming. Mata, along with other Costa Rican officials, took full advantage of the opportunity to consider how the U.S. Border Patrol’s approach could be adapted for their country, its 309-kilometer northern land border with Nicaragua, and its 330-kilometer southern boundary with Panama. “In order to be a Border Police officer today, you have to be able to swim, and you have to maintain certain abilities in the water,” Lacayo explained. Observing U.S. tactics to stop drug traffickers The June visit strengthened the bond between the two countries and will lead to additional cooperation, Security Minister Gustavo Mata and National Police School (ENP) Director Erick Lacayo told Diálogo. For example, in one instance, the Security Minister watched as U.S. Border Patrol agents conducted patrols on horseback — a tactic that he said could be used in Costa Rica, where “there are places that are unreachable by vehicle…even from the air.” All of these efforts to protect Costa Rica’s border pays important dividends for the country’s ecology, as well. Costa Ricans training to join the Border Police must complete a U.S. component during their training, which consists of a three-month Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) specialization course; prospects typically participate in the BORTAC training in the United States. The goal is to develop “a multifaceted, multifunctional officer,” who protects the border area and human rights, Lacayo said. “We must not only think we’re going to teach him how to use a pistol… we must also teach him he must protect natural resources, because, particularly in our border zone, we find the issue of logging, smuggling of species, meat, cheese, fish, products… which also becomes a human security issue.” The recent visit is just one example of close cooperation between Costa Rica and the U.S. on border security. center_img Ongoing training programs “The visit was meant to observe how the [US] authorities manage the border,” said Mata, a former deputy director of the Judicial Investigation Bureau [OIJ] and former Vice Minister of Security. “I was fascinated, because I saw that they use entirely different logistics for border surveillance –- they have mounted police, they have helicopters, airplanes, they have patrol vehicles, they have all-terrain vehicles –- and this gives operational diversity to protection.” Fighting organized crime groups which engage in wildlife trafficking is one of the most important responsibilities of the Costa Rican Border Police, one of several civilian law enforcement forces that provide public security in Costa Rica since the country disbanded its Armed Forces in 1948. Protecting Costa Rica’s natural resources The Border Police was inactive for several years until Costa Rica relaunched the department on March 30, 2014, at the Costa Rican border post of Los Chiles. The Central American country has about 51,100 square kilometers of land surface and about 589,000 square kilometers of territorial waters, and is one of the 20 countries in the world with the highest biodiversity. It’s home to more than 500,000 species of animals, including marine mammals and reptiles, more than 900 species of birds, and many big cats, such as pumas, jaguarundis, margays, ocelots, and oncillas or little spotted cats. “All that experience allowed me to have a much broader criterion about how we’re going to guard our borders … and see what logistics I could count on. I bring with me a clear model, to see, to analyze whether it’s possible to adapt it,” Mata said. Top Costa Rican security officials recently studied border protection strategies during a visit to Texas installations of the United States Border Patrol, located along the border shared by Mexico and the U.S. The Costa Rican authorities observed strategies and tactics their country’s Border Police (Policía de Fronteras) could utilize. last_img read more

US, Cuba trade terrorism accusations as Havana blacklisted

first_imgTopics : It was the first time that Cuba was not certified since 2015. It joined the ranks of four other US adversaries — Iran, North Korea, Syria and Venezuela.”Cuba’s refusal to productively engage with the Colombian government demonstrates that it is not cooperating with US work to support Colombia’s efforts to secure a just and lasting peace, security and opportunity for its people,” the State Department said.Colombian President Ivan Duque, a conservative ally of the United States, broke off talks with the ELN after a January car bomb attack on a Bogota police academy killed 21 recruits.The militants have been demanding, unsuccessfully, that Colombia grant safe passage for its negotiators to come back from Cuba.   ‘Victim of terrorism’ In Havana, a foreign ministry official in charge of relations with the United States responded that Cuba was in fact “a victim of terrorism.””There is a long history of terrorist acts committed by the US government vs. Cuba and complicity of US authorities with individuals and organizations that have organized, financed and executed such actions from US territory,” Carlos F. de Cossio wrote on Twitter.Cuba on Tuesday demanded an “exhaustive investigation” into terrorism over the April 30 early-morning shooting incident at its embassy in Washington. Police arrested Alexander Alazo, who is originally from Cuba, for firing 32 rounds at the embassy, which suffered bullet damage. No one was injured. Havana said Alazo frequented an evangelical church in Florida popular among conservative US politicians.”I call upon the United States to explain these links” between Alazo and people or groups “who support the current US administration but are inciting hatred and violence against Cuba,” Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said. In a court filing, the Secret Service said that Alazo had been prescribed psychiatric drugs after complaining of hearing voices and had been living in his car for nine months, saying he feared Cuban organized crime figures.The 42-year-old unsuccessfully tried to set ablaze a Cuban flag and instead waved a US flag and “yelled towards the Cuban embassy that he was a Yankee,” the Secret Service said.Referring to the purported mental health issues, Rodriguez said, “If there was hatred in Alazo’s actions, it was hatred induced by the aggressive language of the US administration.”The State Department earlier condemned the shooting and said the United States was committed to protecting diplomatic missions.Rodriguez linked the shooter to a church in the Miami suburb of Doral, a hub of Venezuelans who have fled their country’s crumbling economy. Cuba is a key ally of Venezuela’s leftist leader, Nicolas Maduro, whom the United States is trying to remove. Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech last year at the church, the Doral Jesus Worship Center, where he called Cuba’s leaders “the real imperialists in the Western Hemisphere.” The State Department certification falls under the Arms Export Control Act and will have little practical effect on Cuba, which does not buy weapons from its long-time foe.But the step is the latest by Trump to increase pressure on Cuba and move away from the reconciliation efforts undertaken by his predecessor Barack Obama.The move is separate from a US designation of state sponsorship of terrorism, which has far-reaching legal effects.The Obama administration removed Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism in 2015, although Trump’s State Department has flirted with putting it back on.The ELN is said to operate in about 10 percent of Colombia but is a smaller player than the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, which reached a landmark peace agreement with the government in 2016. The United States and Cuba traded accusations of support for terrorism as President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday blacklisted the communist island, saying it had not fully cooperated on counterterrorism.Washington increased the pressure on Havana just one day after Cuba urged a terrorism probe over gunfire that hit its embassy in the US capital.The State Department faulted Cuba over the presence of Colombia’s leftist ELN rebels, who traveled to Havana in 2017 to negotiate with the Bogota government but have not returned.last_img read more

Dollar, yen appreciation behind Philips scheme’s 2.4% investment loss

first_imgThe Philips fund also reduced the strategic allocation of its combined equity and property holdings to 35-45%, following an asset-liability management study. Its fixed income allocation was to range from 55% to 65%, the scheme said.At year-end, the pension fund held 42.5% in equity and property, and 57.5% in fixed income.The pension fund said its passively managed government bond portfolio gained 2.9% “following high demand as a result of worries about the economy”. Source: PhilipsPhilips’ Dutch pension fund lost 2.4% in 2018Mortgages delivered 0.3% as a result of a new valuation method, based on individual housing loans and an interest rate based on consumer tariffs. Without these changes, the gain would have been 2.7%.It lost 1.6% on its holdings of emerging market debt. Of this, the majority was due to “strong volatility of government bonds of Turkey and Argentina”, the Philips scheme said.High-yield credit delivered 2.4% – an outperformance of 40 basis points – due to a defensive position aimed at a higher creditworthiness, it said.The Philips Pensioenfonds credited high returns from property funds for its 3.1% overall gain from real estate. This was 1.7 percentage points short of its benchmark, Philips said, but its portfolio was still under construction and in part invested in cash. The pension fund planned to fill the allocation with indirect non-listed property investments.Roel Wijmenga, the scheme’s chairman, said the board was concerned about the costs of a transition from average pensions accrual to degressive accrual, planned as part of wide-ranging Dutch pension reforms.He estimated that costs for his pension fund would be “hundreds of millions”, and urged the government to thoroughly look into the effects of the change in case “the remedy turns out to be worse than the problem”.Wijmenga said that the Philips Pensioenfonds was soon to begin the selection process for a pensions administrator to take over from PGGM, its current provider, from 2022. The provider would also have to ensure the scheme was optimally prepared for the introduction of a new pensions system.He added that PGGM would also participate in the selection process and that a decision should be finalised before the end of 2019. The €18.5bn Dutch pension fund of electronics giant Philips said its 2.4% loss last year was entirely due to its currency hedge.In its annual report for 2018, the scheme said that the US dollar and the Japanese yen had both appreciated relative to the euro, but its hedge was positioned for depreciation.Despite the negative contribution to its overall result, the pension fund insisted that it was sensible to keep on hedging currency risk given that its liabilities were in euros. In addition, it said research had shown that running currency risk didn’t pay off in the long term.However, the scheme said it had decided to halve the full currency hedge in its equity portfolio “for strategic reasons”.last_img read more

Gold Coast staycation one to remember, with two young kids

first_imgOne of the new display homes currently under construction at Sanctuary Point — the latest residential stage at Sanctuary Cove.It would not have been the first destination to come to mind for a family holiday.With two young kids, our holidays tend to be to places with hardy, washable walls, a playground of some sort and an extensive kids menu.So when I was asked if I wanted to take my family on a staycation to Sanctuary Cove, my immediate thought was, where is the magic eraser?We checked into the Queenslander Suite at the Intercontinental Hotel on April 12. It had a flashy foyer and reception area, and lots of sparkly things that made my nerves jangle as Miss 2 moved around the space pretending she could fly.But the staff quickly allayed my fears of total toddler destruction, handing the two cherubs a kids pack full of goodies. Phew, I thought, they have done this before.After checking in, a lovely chap in a golf buggy transported us to our suite, with Master 8 asking, “so how fast do these things really go?”The room itself was spacious, with a king bed for the adults, a sofa bed for Master 8 and a cot for Miss 2. Meanwhile, five new display homes are currently under construction at Sanctuary Point — the latest residential stage at Sanctuary Cove.Now 30 years old, the development is home to more than 3000 residents, with only five more releases expected before its completion in the next five to 10 years.To help home buyers see the vast options available, developer Mulpha Group has enlisted several prestige builders to construct and complete the display homes by mid-year.Those builders include Ausview Constructions Group, Kalka Homes, Gallery Homes and HomeCorp Constructions.The Ausview display home will be located on a 367sq m with marina views, and will features a gatehous, buggy parking, zen-style courtyard and a spa in the backyard.The Kalka Homes house will be a Hamptons-inspired, two-storey residence on a 420sq m marina-frontage allotment.Gallery Homes will showcase a single-level house, while HomeCorp Constructions will focus on indoor and outdoor living on its 782sq m lot.Lots in the current stage range in price from $525,000 to $2.6 million. Sanctuary Cove is home to a number of celebrities, and hosted some of Hollywood’s biggest names. It is currently home to real estate TV personality Andrew Winter, golfer Adam Scott and V8 Supercars champion, Jamie Whincup.Self-proclaimed billionaire and controversial political candidate Cliev Palmer also has homes in the exclusive gated community, which features the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, the Sanctuary Cove Marine Village, the Sanctuary Cove Country Club and two championship golf courses. For hubby and I, it was the signature Black Angus eye fillet steak cooked on a hot rock and the braised beef cheeks with cauliflower puree, red cabbage, cherry tomatoes and duck-fat potatoes. You know a meal is good when two adults and two boisterous kids are completely silent at the dinner table.We followed this up with dessert, which for me was a heavenly espresso martini.The following day started with breakfast at The Grange, a buffet of goodness that saw Master 8 put away four man-sized helpings. This was followed by an exclusive tour of Marine Village and Sanctuary Cove development, a haven for southeast celebs and well-heeled business types.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoAgain, Master 8 was suitably impressed by the number of Lamborghinis, Ferraris and other flash cars, so much so he queried why we drove standard automobiles.That turned into a great life lesson — stay in school, work hard and maybe, just maybe, you can buy your own Lambo!Lunch for the day was courtesy of Anchor Buoy Cafe and Bar. Still stuffed from breakfast, we ordered a range of tapas and they were delicious, if only there was room for more.That afternoon, we were free to roam the resort, with the kids frothing at the chance to get wet. So it was off to the pool for a few hours of water wrestling, ball games and then a dip in the heated spa. There was also a few competitive games of oversized chess.Dinner that night was at The Verandah Restaurant and Bar, which was good but better suited to couples. Full to the brim with food, we retired to our suite, checking out the next morning after another hearty breakfast.Overall, the Intercontinental Hotel and the Sanctuary Cove Marine Village surprised me. Given its location and luxury homes, it could be easy to assume that this is not a place for families with boisterous and energetic kids, but we had a ball.The staff were fantastic, the location spectacular, the food delicious, and the amenities and natural setting offered a great opportunity to switch off from technology and enjoy some family time.So much so Master 8 remarked: “So are we going to buy a house here?” Maybe one day, mate. The kangaroos chilling on site. Five new display homes are currently under construction at Sanctuary Point — the latest residential stage at Sanctuary Cove. The balcony overlooked the parklands, the canal and the pool area, which includes a pool house, spa, an oversized chess board and a mob of kangaroos that like to sunbake and occasionally mow (chew) the lawn.That night, we were transported by buggy to the Sanctuary Cove Marine Village where we dined at the Black Angus Bar and Grill.Located on the water overlooking multimillion dollar yachts, we were seated at a table with a paper tablecloth and crayons. Hallelujah!The kids had pasta and hubby and I were treated to a menu chosen by the chef, Jun.That pasta! Master 8 demolished it faster than a footy team doing carb loading ahead of a big game.

first_img(ESPNCricinfo) – Stuart Broad has described himself as “frustrated” and “angry” at having been left out of England’s side for the first Test of the series against West Indies.Broad, the second highest wicket-taker in England’s Test history, said he found the decision “difficult to understand” and suggested he had sought clarification on his future from Ed Smith, national selector.“I’m not a particularly emotional person but I’ve found the last couple of days quite tough,” Broad told Sky Sports shortly before play resumed on the third day. “To say I was disappointed would be an understatement; you’re disappointed if you drop your phone and the screen breaks.“I’m frustrated, angry and gutted. It’s difficult to understand. I’ve probably bowled the best I’ve ever bowled the last couple years, I felt it was my shirt. I was in the team for the Ashes and going to South Africa and winning there.”Broad was England’s leading wicket-taker in their previous Test series – he claimed 14 wickets at a cost of 19.42 apiece in South Africa – and in the Ashes series of 2019, when he claimed 23 wickets at 26.65.“I spoke to Ed Smith (the national selector) last night. He said he was involved in picking the 13 and this side was picked purely for this pitch,” Broad continued. “I wanted clarification on my future going forward, and I was given pretty positive feedback going forward.“So yes, I was frustrated in the fact that I felt like I deserved a spot in the team.”Despite that frustration Broad accepted the bowlers picked in front of him also deserved their places and accepted that the current competition for places was probably a healthy thing for England.“You can’t argue the bowlers walking on that field don’t deserve to play,” Broad said. “Everyone deserves to play. Chris Woakes, Sam Curran were bowling really well and probably deserve to be in the XI. It’s just annoying when it’s not you that’s in that XI. Very rarely do you get guys fit and available for each Test match. That’s where selection has been tricky.“It’s great to see strength and depth in the fast bowling ranks. It’s the only way that England cricket moves forward and gets better. And with high competition in squads it keeps the standard high. Everyone is under pressure for his spot.”Broad’s omission broke a run of 51 consecutive home Tests dating back to 2012.last_img read more

SECOND WIND: Syracuse uses final push to hold off Miami, remain unbeaten

first_imgAn hour before Syracuse faced off against Hofstra, a large contingent of SU players gathered in a tunnel adjacent to the Carrier Dome field and watched a scrimmage between Hofstra and Le Moyne.The SU players weren’t just scouting the two teams they would face later in the day; they were eager to take the field themselves. Eager to begin the process of erasing memories of last season’s heart-breaking national title game loss to Duke.On Saturday — almost eight months to the day since the title game – the Orange began its rehabilitation process with scrimmage wins over Hofstra and Le Moyne. Despite struggling mightily at the faceoff X — which SU did so famously against Duke last May — the Orange defeated Hofstra 12-8 and Le Moyne 15-4.“We spent more time on faceoffs this fall and spring than ever before,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “I wish we would have done a little better versus Hofstra … It was good to see us improve and get better against Le Moyne.”The Orange lost a staggering 27-of-46 total draws, allowing two inferior teams to remain in striking distance.Desko said the Orange has seven players who work on faceoffs at practice. On Saturday, the team used five.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textChris Daddio won 10 of the 19 draws he took on the day, but won only 3-of-8 against Hofstra. Mike Iacono won 2-of-11 against Hofstra and 2-of-6 against Le Moyne.Daddio struggled to begin the Hofstra game before giving way to Iacono with SU ahead 4-2. But the junior transfer from Nassau Community College didn’t fare much better.Daddio credited the slow start to his mentality going into the game. Iacono said it might have been first-game jitters. Desko credited Hofstra freshman Kris Clark, who won 14 of the 19 draws he took.“We knew about him coming off of Long Island as a high school player,” Desko said. “ … Some of it, too, we changed our guys up when we were losing a few, and it’s hard to get into a rhythm when we change our people.”Against Hofstra, the Orange lost 17-of-23 draws.But despite not having the ball to begin possessions, Syracuse was able to capitalize when it did. Kevin Rice recorded five points — one goal and four assists — while Dylan Donahue put up four goals and assisted on Scott Loy’s first-quarter goal.Four different players scored for the Orange in the second half: Billy Ward, Hakeem Lecky, Donahue and Tom Grimm. The team thwarted any chance of a comeback upset.Against Le Moyne, Syracuse fared much better at the X. The Orange won 13-of-23 draws and cruised to an easier victory against its cross-town rival.Iacono began the game at the X, and was better than he was against Hofstra.“My wing help was tremendous,” he said. “They held down for me. I’m completely confident in my wings. Today was the beginning point to working toward the whole season.”Winning more faceoffs resulted in more goals. The Orange won 5-of-7 draws in the first quarter and took a 5-1 lead.In the second half, the Orange won 5-of-8 and allowed just one goal while scoring five.Despite the two victories, the faceoff X will continue to be a topic of discussion for Syracuse as it prepares for its regular-season opener against Siena on Feb. 10.Said Daddio: “We’ve been working a lot this season already, and I think we’ll be fine. We picked it up in the second game and toward the end of the first game, but we can’t start slow like we did. We’ve just got to get into a rhythm.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 25, 2014 at 3:19 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHasslast_img read more

Rajon Rondo’s buzzer-beater lifts Lakers over Celtics

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIt went in.The 32-year-old veteran was carried off by his gold-clad teammates, giving the Lakers (28-27) a much-needed 129-128 win after a week that had crushed their spirit, and leaving an assembly of Boston fans torn by a former hero stealing the game. It was Rondo’s first go-ahead field goal in the final 10 seconds of the fourth quarter or overtime in his 13 seasons in the NBA, and it was one for the storybooks.“It definitely feels surreal,” he said. “I haven’t watched the replay yet but this is one I’ll be playing for the rest of my life.”Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.As Rondo (17 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds) prevented another New England-based team from inflicting suffering on a legion of Los Angeles fans, a strong performance by LeBron James – a 28-point, 12-assist, 12-rebound triple-double – was relegated to the background. Rondo also topped the go-ahead bucket of Celtics star Kyrie Irving (23 points, eight assists, seven rebounds) moments before.Just when it looked like the Celtics had the game wrapped on a Marcus Morris 3-pointer, giving them a six-point lead with a little more than a minute left, the Lakers punched back. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions “It’s super tough on a team, mentally, physically,” Kuzma said. “And for us to come out and everything we’ve been dealing with, not just trade rumors but freaking injuries, imbalanced rotations and everything, it was great to get a win. And we can build on this potentially.”The Lakers found true life for the first time in the third quarter, raining down 3-pointers and making nine of them. Kuzma scored 14 of his points in that frame, leading to a lopsided 42-27 run. It was part of a new franchise high 22 3-pointers, three more than any Laker team had ever made.The Lakers showed the sluggishness in the first half that had dragged them down in Indiana. As Tatum (22 points) and Jaylen Brown (18 points) got out to fast starts, the Lakers couldn’t hit shots – save for Lance Stephenson, who brought a peppy 14 points off the bench, all in the first half. But his hot streak didn’t coincide with a lively start for the Lakers, who trailed by as many as 18 points in the first half.The fact that the Lakers responded was what Coach Luke Walton hoped to see, and what he hopes to see more of in the coming months.“It was an all-out team win,” he said. “I think that’s what I was happiest with tonight. You go down the line and it was about making little plays throughout the game and stepping up for each other.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Kentavious Caldwell-Pope broke a franchise record with the Lakers’ 20th 3-pointer of the night. Then on the subsequent possession, he helped save a wild James toss in-bounds before passing it back to James, who nailed a game-tying triple from the corner in the final minute.A pair of free throws from Jayson Tatum (the Celtics shot 20 for 20 from the line) gave his team the lead, but Kyle Kuzma took it back with a 3-pointer with 18.5 seconds left.Rondo’s buzzer-beater against one of the NBA’s toughest home teams showed a dramatic turnaround from two days before, when the Lakers were dismantled in a 42-point loss to the Indiana Pacers. After that game, in which the team looked distracted and lifeless, they sought some resolve to salvage the remainder of the season and push themselves back in the playoff picture.“We needed a response,” James said. “Just a lot was going on with our ball club in Indiana, just from energy to what they need, to the trades and everything, it just played into our heads as a collective group and for us to bounce back like this after the trade deadline, we know this is is who we have, this is our group and this was a big step for our team.”The game capped a day when emotions were already running high: The Lakers finally crossed over the midday trade deadline, concluding a period of fraught speculation and rumor about whether the franchise would trade much of its roster for New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis.The big deal never materialized, but nonetheless, the Lakers traded away three of their players who saw the floor in their previous game in Indianapolis: Svi Mykhailiuk, Ivica Zubac and Michael Beasley. The fruits of their maneuvers, Reggie Bullock and Mike Muscala, had not yet joined the team.That left the Lakers a bit short-handed on the road, with Josh Hart getting back on the floor and playing through knee tendinitis to help compensate.Many of the players discussed as trade chips in the last week showed their value: Kuzma scored 25 points, 19 in the second half. Caldwell-Pope had 17 off the bench. Brandon Ingram’s shooting (4 for 14) was off-target, but his length on defense was an irritant to Irving for nearly 40 minutes.If being the subject of trade rumors was a burden before the deadline, after, that weight had clearly been lifted.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Related Articlescenter_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers PreviousLos Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo, left, celebrates his game-winning shot with teammates Kyle Kuzma, middle, and LeBron James (23) in an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics, Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019, in Boston.

first_imgBerlin, Germany | AFP | Borussia Dortmund want-away star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly close to signing for Premier League side Arsenal — with the German club in turn hoping to recruit Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea.German daily Bild says Dortmund want 70 million euros ($85.6m) for Aubameyang, the top scorer in the Bundesliga last season with 31 goals.Bild says Aubameyang’s father and agent Pierre is in London discussing a possible transfer with Arsenal with the Gunners reportedly considering selling Chile striker Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.Bild also claim Dortmund are closely monitoring Belgian forward Batshuayi, who has failed to impress Antonio Conte at Chelsea, starting just two of his 11 Premier League appearances this season.Aubameyang seems determined to force a move from Bundesliga side Dortmund.He was dropped for Sunday’s goalless draw at home to Wolfsburg after failing to attend a team meeting — the third time he has been disciplined by the club in the last two seasons.“I don’t know what is going through his head. I don’t know him any more,” said Dortmund’s clearly exasperated director of sport Michael Zorc. “He used to be always professional, I have never experienced such behavior before and it can not go on like this – it’s intolerable.”The Gabon hot-shot has scored 21 goals in 23 games in all competitions this season, but Dortmund’s head coach Peter Stoeger, who stepped in last December after Peter Bosz was sacked, has said Aubameyang is currently a disruptive influence in the squad.It remains to be seen whether Stoeger will select Aubameyang for Friday’s Bundesliga match away to Hertha Berlin.“Disappointment is the wrong expression, rather incomprehension, because I can not really understand his behaviour, but I’m not the only one,” Stoeger told Sport Bild magazine.The Austrian head coach said he is assuming that Aubameyang, who has a contract until 2021, will stay, but if so, the player has bridges to rebuild with the club.“‘Auba’ must make it clear to the coach whether or not be is prepared to give everything for Borussia Dortmund,” echoed Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Titans desperate to rediscover winning feeling

first_imgThe only team to have defeated the two Telstra Premiership front-runners in the Storm and Sharks – not to mention being a well-executed kick from knocking off fourth-placed Brisbane – the Titans are in danger of vying for the wooden spoon rather than the top eight should they lose a fifth game on the trot this week.It was only a month ago that Gold Coast had pushed into the top eight on the back of three consecutive wins and while that proved they could match it with the top teams, the way back is through energy and effort.Last year the Titans went through a six-week period late in the season where they only lost one game to put themselves in finals reckoning and halfback Ashley Taylor says they can do it again if they get back to executing the basics for 80 minutes.”It was pretty nitty-gritty,” Taylor said of the three-game winning streak. “The boys put their hand up, we were running the ball hard, we were playing hard and there was lots of energy on the field and that’s what we need to get back to. Everyone competing on the field and everyone putting in 100 per cent effort.”I’m sure the boys are doing that but we just need to focus on it a lot more.”That’s what we need in our game, to get the little things right and once those little things come back and everyone’s on the same page we’ve already shown that we can beat the top teams and we can be competitive.”It’s just a matter of getting back to that and getting some wins.”The Titans’ task will be made easier on Friday night with Origin representatives Jarryd Hayne, Jarrod Wallace and Nathan Peats all expected to back up along with the return of Tyrone Roberts from a shoulder injury to partner Taylor in the halves.Another bonus for the Titans is the ankle injury that will keep James Tedesco from lining up for the Tigers and like Taylor, coach Neil Henry believes a return to the competitiveness they displayed in 2016 will help to turn things around.”If we can remember what got us some wins last year and what was keeping us in games we’ll give ourselves a good chance to win games,” Henry said.”We got on a bit of a run and won a few games in a row and we were able to get there. We’ll need to do the same again. We can’t control the injuries we’ve had, we can only react to it and play some decent footy.”The reality is that we haven’t got too long. We need to get over this game first. The focus is on getting a result in Campbelltown and if we get that done we can shift it to a home game against the Dragons. It really needs to be a game at a time.”Taylor was solely responsible for the execution of the game-plan in a decimated team against the Rabbitohs last week and while the return of other key members of the spine is welcome, Henry still wants his young half in control much of the time.”I think we do still need him to be dominant,” Henry said. “He’s our main kicker and warming to that role as a young, developing half.”He’s got a good kicking game, he needs to command the ball on both sides and he’s a good runner of the ball as well.” Photo by: Nathan Hopkins/NRL Photos (Titans halfback Ash Taylor will again be called on to lead his side’s attack against Wests Tigers).last_img read more

New species links two ages of dinosaurs

first_imgCLEVELAND – A newly discovered dinosaur species was a plant-eater with yard-long horns over its eyebrows, suggesting an evolutionary middle step between older dinosaurs with even larger horns and the small-horned creatures that followed, experts said. The dinosaur’s horns, thick as a human arm, are like those of triceratops – which came 10 million years later. However, this animal belonged to a subfamily that usually had bony nubbins a few inches long above its eyes. Michael Ryan, curator of vertebrate paleontology for the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, published the discovery in this month’s Journal of Paleontology. He dug up the fossil six years ago in southern Alberta, Canada, while a graduate student for the University of Calgary. “Unquestionably, it’s an important find,” said Peter Dodson, a University of Pennsylvania paleontologist. “It was sort of the grandfather or great-uncle of the really diverse horned dinosaurs that came after it.” Ryan named the new dinosaur Albertaceratops nesmoi, after the region and Cecil Nesmo, a rancher near Manyberries, Alberta, who has helped fossil hunters. The creature was about 20 feet long and lived 78 million years ago. The oldest known horned dinosaur in North America is called Zuniceratops. It lived 12 million years before Albertaceratops nesmoi and also had large horns. That makes the newly found creature an intermediate between older forms with large horns and later small-horned relatives, said state of Utah paleontologist Jim Kirkland, who with Douglas Wolfe identified Zuniceratops in New Mexico in 1998. He predicted then that something like Ryan’s find would turn up. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Diego Costa must take responsibility for his red card, insists Guus Hiddink

first_img1 Diego Costa in action for Chelsea against Everton in the FA Cup Interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink will reserve judgement on the incident which saw Diego Costa appear to try to bite Everton’s Gareth Barry until he has had chance to see it for himself.The Spain international was sent off late in the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final defeat after clashing with Barry, who was also sent off moments later for his second booking after fouling Cesc Fabregas.Television replays suggest Costa made to bite his opponent before thinking better of it at the last second but Hiddink would not comment until he has had a chance to review it.“I try to be fair in my judgement, I haven’t seen it and it is difficult for me to say yes or no,” said the Dutchman, who has not yet spoken to his player about it.“Without seeing, I don’t want to give judgement on this.“He was chased a bit in the game. They went after him. They knew it. It is within the rules.“As a referee you must protect the situation but knowing and feeling the atmosphere – then comes the moment that I would like to give judgement (on) but I haven’t seen it.”Hiddink was asked whether the volatile Costa should seek help for anger management and jokingly made reference to the 2003 film of the same name.“There are movies about that, I think. One movie with Jack Nicholson. Maybe we go and watch it together,” he added.“I like him still going towards the edge but you also have to take into consideration he was desperate to play today.“It would have been better to rest him but it is not the type of game you rest players.“It is all the combination; not fully physically fit and all the provocations and he has to take responsibility for the incident.”last_img read more

MidEast Youth Launches Crowdvoice for Yemeni Day of Rage

first_imgCrowdVoice allows readers to read, and contribute to, a user-generated, dynamic aggregation of information on a specific topic. Iranian-American activist and Daily Beast contributor Reza Aslan called it a “powerful tool for discovering voices of dissent.”Features include a blog widget to funnel contributions to a user’s site and the ability to subscribe. In Yemen, protests have been taking place almost daily since the middle of last month in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa. That on January 27th is said to have been attended by as many as 16,000 protesters. Like Tunisia and Egypt, a major demand of the protesters is an end to the 32-year rule of its president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. A constitutional amendment currently before the legislature would legalize Saleh’s lifetime occupation of that office. Unlike both Tunisia and Egypt, the strongest voice calling for this day of concerted protest doesbelong to the representative of an Islamist group. In addition to being a senior member of the Islamist-influenced opposition Al-Ishah party, Tawakel Karman, is also an activist and the founder of the non-governmental organization Women Journalists Without Chains. She was arrested on January 22nd and held for several days before being released. Esra’a Al-Shahei, founder of MidEast Youth, said the protests do not seem any more “Islamist-led” than those in Tunisia or Egypt. “My personal opinion (is) it isn’t being led by Islamists at all. Women’s rights defenders appear to be the forefront of many of these protests.”The day has generated its own hashtag, #feb3, a Yemeni version of Egypt’s #jan25.Disclosure: MidEast Youth provided server space for the Committee to Protect Bloggers, which I founded.

Samjhauta blasts: NIA chargesheets Aseemanand, 4 others

first_imgThe National Investigating Agency (NIA) on Monday filed a chargesheet against Hindutva leader Swami Aseemanand and four others, holding them responsible for the Samjhauta Express blasts in 2007 which left 68 people dead. Asimanand allegedly propounded a bomb ka badla bomb (bomb for bomb) theory and masterminded the terror strike, instigating the other accused to carry out the attack.Aseemanand represents right-wing Hindutva organisation Abhinav Bharat. He was arrested by the CBI on November 19, 2010, from Haridwar in Uttarakhand for his alleged role in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad.Others named in the 24- page chargesheet filed in a Panchkula court were the late Sunil Joshi, Lokesh Sharma, Sandeep Dange alias Parmanand and Ramchandra Kalasangra alias Ramji alias Vishnu Patel. While Joshi has been murdered, two other accused – Kalasangra and Dange – are absconding.The investigating agency was also looking into the part played by other suspects such as RSS leader Indresh Kumar, Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, Amit alias Sunny and Devender Gupta for their involvement in the conspiracy.India will now formally hand over the NIA chargesheet to Pakistan. ” Our chargesheet shows that India has the courage to expose the real masterminds and plotters behind the Samjhauta Express attack. We expect the same from Pakistan, which continues to deny the involvement of the real masterminds such as Hafiz Saeed, ISI’s Major Iqbal and LeT commander Sajid Mir in the 26/ 11 case,” a top source said.Government sources revealed that Pakistan would be informed of the chargesheet if a query is raised from that side during the upcoming foreign- secretary level talks in Islamabad from June 23. ” A copy of the chargesheet would soon be handed over to Pakistan through diplomatic channels and Pakistan high commissioner Shahid Malik may be called to collect the same,” sources added.advertisementAccording to the chargesheet, Asimanand was upset with the jehadi terrorist attacks on Akshardham temple in Gujarat, Raghunath Mandir in Jammu and Sankat Mochan temple in Varanasi. He and Joshi held a meeting at Shabridham ashram in Gujarat’s Dang district following the Varanasi blast in 2006.This was when they plotted the train attack. Asimanand presided over the meeting in which he said: ” Bomb ka jawab bomb se dena chahiye .” The accused chose to attack Samjhauta Express since the majority of travellers were Pakistani citizens. Asimanand provided financial and logistical support to the terror group. Dange, Ramji and Sharma and some others led by Joshi had procured the raw material for the IEDs. They also fabricated and planted the explosives in the train.The accused were charged with hatching a criminal conspiracy leading to murder, attempt to murder and some other offences under the IPC, in addition to the Railways Act, Explosive Substances Act, Prevention of Damage of Public Property Act and Unlawful Activities ( Prevention) Act. The Samjhauta Express blasts had taken place on February 18, 2007, at Diwana village near Panipat in Haryana.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Go play outside (with your outdoor displays)

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.center_img Display technology being utilized for digital advertising is not a new concept — Times Square, downtown Tokyo, and other big-city environments typically come to mind when we think of outdoor displays. However, display technology is increasingly finding its way into the great outdoors in new and different formats. While indoor applications still represent about 80 percent of the display market, the pace of growth for outdoor technologies and applications is picking up, thereby expanding manufacturers’ market opportunities.Outdoor signs have typically been static and made of paper, plastic, or metal. In the last few years, however, electronic signage has become fairly common. Outdoor electronic signs started as cathode ray tubes (CRTs), which served a purpose but posed multiple challenges — they were a couple of feet thick and very heavy, creating the need for a robust, concrete-and-steel mechanical support structure; shielding them from the sun was difficult; and they were not innately attractive. Once liquid crystal displays (LCDs) arrived in the scene, they were viewed as a better alternative. However, they were still several inches thick due to the powerful backlight they required, particularly in an outdoor setting.Currently, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) dominate the roughly $15 billion outdoor signage market, with LCDs holding a tiny market share in second place. However, electronic paper, or ePaper, is starting to gain ground, with good reason; we’ll return to consider this technology shortly.Using displays in outdoor environments creates challenges, particularly in the daytime. People tend to be outdoors during the day more than at night, and this creates a problem when the sun shines directly on the display — images fade due to poor contrast, and it can be difficult for the viewer to see messages clearly from any angle. Since these displays are essentially competing with the sun, they need to put out a great deal of light to compensate, thereby causing power consumption to go through the roof. Even when used in sports stadiums, shopping malls, and other venues that receive indirect sunlight, they require dedicated high-power cabling and power supplies. Forget about battery backup in case of power loss from the grid. Typically, the cost of power consumption for these large LED signs is paid for by advertisers, by arena owners (actually, by fans via higher ticket prices), or by taxpayers when on public roadways. (Of course, gambling revenues help offset LED power costs in places like Las Vegas.) The recurring costs due to power consumption for large signage displays are non-trivial, but the unit cost of power from the grid (11 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) is affordable for most operators.LEDs can stand extremes of weather, whereas LCDs have complicated temperature maintenance requirements. LCD-based signage units contain heaters to warm them when it gets too cold and to keep them at the proper material level (i.e., not too liquid or too crystallized). Hot weather creates further problems; while fans can be inserted, they require a separate outlet, and dust will enter the unit when the fans are not running, clogging up the filters. And fans are not always permissible in some sites, e.g., retail gas stations, where you don’t want to circulate gasoline fumes onto hot surfaces inside the display. Some places, such as train stations, are using LCDs, but they require a very powerful backlight to combat the sun. Making the display visible in sunlight requires a huge amount of power, which — in turn — creates heat and thickness issues, shortens product life, and boosts costs. The bottom line is that cost and power consumption create serious issues regarding long-term outdoor use of LCDs.How do we solve this power problem? Power consumption by indoor TV displays is problematic, let alone when the display size increases and additional issues associated with outdoor use come into play. The long-term answer to the outdoor-display challenge is reflective or transflective display technologies. The combination of ePaper with specialized LCDs, which can use the sun rather than fight it, is beginning to gain traction. In some applications, such a combination uses 99 percent less power than LED or outdoor LCD, and eliminates glare issues in daylight. For nighttime use, a front light can be set up to reflect off the display to ensure readability is maintained.ePaper is being employed globally in a growing range of locations, as the accompanying images illustrate. Increasingly, these locations are standalone and remote. In London, for example, ePaper displays are being deployed using a solar cell on top of the sign, which therefore requires virtually no electricity and, when outfitted with WiFi, no data cables.London bus stop using ePaper (Source: Visionect) ePaper billboards used in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana (Source: Visionect) At the The Society for Information Display (SID) , we believe ePaper for outdoor displays will take off in a major way for a broad range of applications in the next two to three years. For a start, ePaper can be used for street signs — it’s visible in areas where inclement weather is an issue, and the display — like any electronic sign — provides a significant leg up as compared to static plastic or paper signs. This can be particularly valuable when a natural disaster occurs. When Fukushima, Japan, was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami in 2011, for example, large signage displays jointly developed by E-Ink and Toppan were able to keep running in certain cities, consuming just 1% of the power needed by other, similar-sized signs. These very low-power, easily viewed displays became a valuable resource for residents, who would trek to the city center to view updated information on emergency contacts, disaster relief, water quality, and other important news.One technology that’s not being used much for outdoor applications is organic LED (OLED). OLEDs can be viewable outdoors, but — once again — their power consumption is very high, so their cost and lifetime outlook is negatively impacted when used outdoors. However, one specific application for OLEDs is emerging — transparent displays in semi-outdoor applications. Retail shop windows can be replaced with transparent displays, heightening the window shopping experience while providing information that transcends the traditional “card in the window.” Signage providers have begun to offer transparent OLEDs designed to showcase dynamic or interactive information on a transparent glass surface. This can be particularly useful for high-end retail goods, allowing the entire window to offer a means of comparing and promoting products.Outdoor displays will be showcased during Display Week 2017, which comes to Los Angeles May 21-26. Display Week allows attendees to preview display technologies that they’ll be able to buy in the next few years– not only through demonstrations provided by exhibitors, but also via many high-value workshops and talks. This year’s technical symposium will feature a track on Digital Signage Display Solutions, looking at new and enabling innovations and applications.

20 days agoDyche hails Burnley players and staff as they reach fourth

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Dyche hails Burnley players and staff as they reach fourthby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche hailed his players and staff as Jeff Hendrick’s winner sent them fourth in the Premier League.A set play from the training ground worked a treat as Hendrick, back in his favoured central midfield role, smashed home a deep Ashley Westwood corner at the far post to win a tight Turf Moor tussle against the 10-man Toffees.Seamus Coleman saw red for the visitors early in the second half following a barge on Dwight McNeil, which followed an accidental, but reckless first half challenge that ultimately forced Erik Pieters out of the game.“I don’t get too carried away with league table. I’m more interested in the one at the end of the season,” laughed Dyche.“Don’t get me wrong, it’s to be enjoyed for Burnley Football Club and the fans, but for me it’s about focusing on every game and on where we are at the end of the season.“But within that, there are still moments to be enjoyed and you take in these performances and where we are now, compared to a year ago.“We are in a good place because the players have earned the right. They have come back with a real edge to them and I’ll remind you, I was just as proud of them this time last season, when we didn’t have as many points behind us.”Dyche, who celebrates seven years at Turf Moor later this month, added: “One of my many obsessions is finding different ways to win and today was a really tight, tough game.“They are a really good side and I know they’ve had a tough run, but they have quality all over the pitch.“But I thought we contained them well and the red card probably changes the feel of it.” last_img read more

Stolt Tankers Ready to Seize MA Opportunities

first_imgzoom As the separation of Stolt Tankers as a stand-alone company from Belgium’s Stolt-Nielsen Limited (SNL) nears completion, the company is ready to pursue merger and acquisition opportunities that might come its way.“Now we are ready to do another deal, meaning either acquiring a competitor or merging with a competitor using shares instead of cash,” Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen, SNL’s Chief Executive Officer, said while speaking in a conference call on the company’s results.“If that doesn’t happen, we are also ready to do an initial public offering (IPO) if we chose to.”Stolt-Nielsen further added that the company is laying the groundwork to be able to pursue an opportunity quickly.“Had we not separated out, it would have taken us one year to do a carry out a potential acquisition,” he explained.With regard to a potential IPO, Stolt-Nielsen said that even though the option is on the table, it has not been considered as an item on the agenda. This is in particular, as the timing of an IPO needs to be right, however, considering the current situation on the chemical tanker market, now is not the best time to do it.“We would prefer to pursue consolidation opportunities as there is very much room in the market for the consolidation to take place and it would be beneficial for everyone,” he further added.Nevertheless, if those efforts don’t bear fruit the company would turn to an IPO.Stolt Nielsen stressed it intends to remain a majority owner in its chemical tanker business.Oslo-listed Stolt-Nielsen Limited reported USD 49.2 million-worth net profit for the first nine months of 2017, considerably lower from USD 90.3 million posted in the corresponding period of 2016.Stolt Tankers’ third-quarter operating profit was USD 34.4 million, up from USD 27.6 million in the second quarter of 2017 and corresponding quarter of 2016 when it booked USD 31.4 million. For the nine-month period, the tanker division’s profit reached USD 90.5 million against last year’s USD 108 million.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Russia Supports Moroccos Position on the Western Sahara

Rabat – The Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Morocco are against any violation of the UN Security Council resolutions regarding the settlement of the Sahara issue.“The Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Morocco do not support any temptation to accelerate or haste the political process, nor any violation of the parameters defined in the Security Council resolutions” to find a solution to the Sahara issue, said the “Declaration on the deep strategic partnership between the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Morocco” issued Tuesday in Moscow on the occasion of the official visit of King Mohammed VI.The statement comes the heightened tension between Morocco and United Nations Secretariat after Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon made statement that have been regarded as biased by the Moroccan government. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for his part, stressed at a press briefing that the UN should “continue to play a constructive role despite recent misunderstandings”. “It’s an old problem, a very serious problem. (…) But we see no other solution than seeking a compromise,” he insisted.During his recent trip to Algiers and the Tindouf camps on March 5-7, the UN chief used the term “occupation” while referring to Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara.In addition to the use if the term “occupation,” the UN chief stressed that the UN Mission in the territory, known by its French acronym as MINURSO, was “ready to conduct a referendum of self-determination if the parties involved” agreed to proceed with it.The Moroccan government saw in this statement a deviation from UN Security Council resolutions adopted since 2007, which call on the parties to strive towards reaching an agreed upon and mutually acceptable political solution.Morocco reacted angrily to Ban’s statement and accused him of bias in favor of the Polisario and of “departing from his neutrality and impartiality and UN chief.”The UN chief comments are “are politically inappropriate, unprecedented, and contrary to Security Council resolutions,” the statement issued by the government last Tuesday said. read more

Libya UN report details serious human rights abuses in Tripoli Benghazi

The joint report by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the UN human rights office (OHCHR) gives an overview of abuses, including indiscriminate shelling and attacks on civilian objects, the shelling of hospitals, the abduction of civilians, torture and unlawful killings. Detailing accounts of civilian casualties, including women, children and foreign nationals, the report also states that that fighters appear to disregard the likely impact of their action on civilians and have inadequate training and discipline. Further, the use of badly maintained and faulty weapons and ammunition increases inaccuracy. “These factors suggest that many attacks carried out in Tripoli and Benghazi are indiscriminate,” says the report, which covers the period between mid-May and the end of August.The report said the capital, Tripoli, witnessed six consecutive weeks of violence from 13 July, when an alliance of armed groups primarily from the city of Misrata but also from other towns including al-Zawiya and Gheryan, and Tripoli-based armed groups, launched “Operation Dawn” against the Zintan-affiliated al-Qa’qa’ and al-Sawai’q armed groups allied with fighters from the Warshafana region west of Tripoli. In Benghazi in mid-May, retired General Khalifa Haftar announced an armed campaign, “Operation Dignity,” against the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries (SCBR), an alliance including Ansar al-Shari’a, Libya Shield units and other armed groups. Since mid-July, Benghazi appears to be mostly under the control of the SCBR, although the fighting continues, including near Benina Airport.In both Tripoli and Benghazi, all sides have been resorting to a variety of weapons in populated areas, including small arms, GRAD rockets, mortars, anti-aircraft guns, tanks and air attacks. Air strikes by “Operation Dignity” on populated areas have been frequently taking place in Benghazi since May 2014, while in Tripoli, the report says that there have been two air sorties against Operation Dawn armed groups.The report goes on to reveal that dozens of civilians were reportedly abducted in Tripoli and Benghazi solely for their actual or suspected tribal, family or religious affiliation, and have remained missing since the time of their abduction. Such abductions may amount to enforced disappearances if the parties to the conflict do not acknowledge their whereabouts, the report states. UNSMIL is raising cases of those detained with the relevant armed groups and welcomes further information from concerned parties. “Protection of civilians must be a priority,” the report states. “All armed groups must comply with the principles of distinction, proportionality and precautions in attack,” it adds, underscoring that all armed groups must desist from violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, “in particular all acts that may amount to war crimes.”The report urges all armed groups to release or hand over to the justice system individuals who they have detained. It also stresses that the lack of compliance with international human rights and humanitarian law by one party does not absolve other parties from their obligations to comply with these standards. “All armed groups must remove from active duty and hand over to the justice system those among their members suspected of having committed abuses,” the report warns, and adds: “Political or military leaders can be held criminally responsible not only if they order crimes, but also if they are in a position to stop them and do not do so.”UNSMIL also estimates that at least 100,000 Libyans have been internally displaced by the fighting including Tawerghans who were already in their displacement camps since 2011, and that a further 150,000 people, including many migrant workers, have left the country. The deepening political polarization, the fighting and the risk of retaliation by armed groups have generated a climate of fear in which people are reluctant to talk about certain violations and abuses. It has also led many activists, including in particular women activists, to leave the country. UNSMIL and OHCHR have appealed to all sides of the conflict to cease all armed hostilities and engage in an inclusive political dialogue to build a State based on the respect of human rights, democracy and the rule of law. UNSMIL continues to engage with all sides to end the fighting and ensure that civilians are protected, the report states. read more

Commentary 2022 World Cup in Qatar an obvious mistake by FIFA

The FIFA Executive Committee convened in Zurich Dec. 2, 2010 to decide which country would get to host the 2022 World Cup.After eliminating bids from Australia, South Korea and Japan, it was down to the U.S. and Qatar in the decision for who would play host.In the end, Qatar won.Almost immediately after the announcement, an uproar began in the international soccer community. The World Cup takes place during June and July every four years. During those months in Doha, Qatar, the average high temperature is more than 107 degrees Fahrenheit. If player safety is a concern, that temperature is too high.FIFA has since aimed to fix the problem of high temperatures by attempting to move the World Cup to the winter months, as air conditioning the stadiums enough to make play safer would cost unrealistic amounts of money.Instead of absolving the issue, this created as much, if not more, controversy.The English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, the Italian Serie A, the German Bundesliga and other leagues across Europe are in the heart of their seasons in the middle of winter and would struggle to change their long-standing schedules to accommodate such a lengthy event as the World Cup.The Premier League in particular has been vocal about having to change its yearly schedule for the World Cup. Chief Executive Richard Scudamore said FIFA has the power to select the venue, but that the time is a very different decision, as it would interfere too much with previously planned schedules.“Those are two very different things,” Scudamore said. “The sporting calendar across the world is affected.”On top of all that, The Guardian reported Sept. 25 that  at least 44 Nepalese laborers have died in Qatar of heart attacks, heart failure or workplace accidents, which brings up a human rights issue for laborers in Qatar.Despite the backlash, FIFA remains adamant in its stance that the World Cup will take place in Qatar in 2022.The association’s president, Sepp Blatter, said Oct. 4 the venue would not change.“The 2022 World Cup will be played in Qatar — that’s it,” Blatter said. “We don’t know if it’s winter or summer. I do not know what will be the outcome.”It’s pretty clear to me, though, what needs to happen. FIFA needs to admit its mistake and award the bid to the U.S. — or Japan, or South Korea or Australia. Really, they just need to pull it out of Qatar.I respect what FIFA was trying to do in bringing international soccer to the Middle East, which has not had much success in the tournament historically, but putting it there was a mistake from the start.The leagues already are forced to work around the World Cup qualifying schedule in the years leading up to the event, taking time off to allow the players to return to their home countries to play in matches.Not only would two months worth of games be taken away from them, but you have to add in the time that it would take for players to train with their countrymen beforehand, and likely give them time off afterward.That’s four months off  the leagues would essentially be forced to give for the players, something that would in turn be a financial and logistical nightmare.If FIFA is smart, it will move the World Cup.I’m a homer, so I may be a little biased by the fact that I would love to watch the final in the Rose Bowl stadium in Los Angeles, but the controversy kicked up by the Qatar decision is not worth the effort.No one, it seems, outside of FIFA and Qatar, is pleased with the situation and willing to make a change.It seems as if representatives from FIFA are just stubbornly sticking to their guns because they are not willing to come out and say they were wrong. Personally, I don’t think they will.Blatter and the rest of FIFA have made it clear that they want the World Cup in Qatar, so the likelihood of making a change is very small.Allowing the U.S. to host in 2022, the second time the country would host after 1994, would fix the issue of high temperatures as the average temperature in Los Angeles is 83 degrees Fahrenheit in June and 84 in July, and allow the competition to be played in the traditional summer months.Do the right thing FIFA, give the World Cup to the good ol’ U.S. of A. read more

Mining3 reports positive tests on nontoxic post blast alternative bulk explosives

first_imgMining3’s pursuit of a non-toxic post-blast bulk alternative explosive moved one step closer to its objective during the recent detonation performance tests conducted in December 2018. Using new materials in the formula, a series of detonation tests delivered improved explosive performance, reliability and product stability. These new materials supersede chemical gassing techniques to achieve improvements in the crucial characteristics of product stability and void space diameter.Sensitisation of bulk hydrogel explosives is the process of introducing homogeneous void spaces into the blasting agent structure. During the microseconds of an explosion, the heat generated from the rapid collapse of the void spaces sustains the detonation reaction. Hence, the ability and performance of the hydrogel explosive is reliant on mechanical sensitisation and influenced by the diameter of the void spaces.The two physical sensitisation materials tested, which are based on glass and polystyrene materials, confirmed detonation efficiency and will be utilised in 2019 field trials in both surface and underground applications. This latest development “will ensure the stability of the blasting formula specifically for on-site manufacture reducing the risk, cost and security associated with the transport and storage of explosives.”In excess of seventy detonation tests were conducted over five days in high temperature field conditions at Rurex’s Byrock detonation range. The testing concludes phase one of the Physical Sensitiser Project.. The six-month investigation and collaboration with material suppliers worked to identify and manufacture the new sensitiser materials and ensure their efficiency.“We have a renewed confidence in the robustness and performance of alternative explosives, superseding chemical gassing techniques”, states Dr Kettle. “We also had the opportunity to manufacture prototype cartridges for packaging the explosive, in preparation for underground mine-site trials proposed for 2019.”The 1 m cartridges, maintain a barrier between the product and reactive rock surfaces whilst improving safety and loading of the explosive. Blast hole liners, another product packaging option, have recently been used in surface mining trials.last_img read more

Jayne: Sensitivity, compromise called for in naming of park

first_img It is simply a name, one that is distinguished in these parts yet has become problematic for the city of Vancouver.City officials are planning to christen a future park in honor of Ed and Dollie Lynch, longtime philanthropists who are as deserving of acknowledgment as anybody. Dollie Lynch died in 2010 and Ed Lynch in 2015, and they donated land for the park with the understanding that it would be labeled in honor of their family.The issue is that name. Lynch, er, lynch has a negative connotation. That’s what happens when a word comes to mean extrajudicial hangings often accompanied by torture. According to the Tuskegee Institute, some 4,743 people were lynched between 1882 and 1968 in the United States, about three-quarters of them African-American and about three-quarters of them in the South.This practice was celebrated. The website shows a 1916 newspaper from Texas with the lead headline blaring “FIFTEEN THOUSAND SAW NEGRO BURN,” and pictures of mutilated bodies hanging from trees often would accompany the reports. There is no shortage of photos showing lynchings attended by the whole town, as if it were a community picnic.Needless to say, this is an ugly piece of American history. Needless to say, it particularly resonates with African-Americans.And while that has nothing to do with Ed and Dollie Lynch, it has much to do with the park that is planned for northwest Vancouver.It also has much to do with how this nation is attempting to reconcile its past, balancing educational history with modern mores. At a time when monuments to the Confederacy are slowly but rightly being relegated to museums rather than the public square, the manner in which we display our history is under scrutiny.

He’s a constant threat.“Not only Ronaldo but the Portugal squad are very talented. There are many players who can hurt you quickly, a lot of skill and safe in their defensive formation.“We will see a match for all sports lovers. It will be beautiful.
