Senior UN official arrives in Nepal to visit mission supporting peace accord

by ,

7 January 2008A senior United Nations political official arrived in Nepal today for a four-day visit to the UN mission supporting the peace process in the South Asian country after a decade-long civil conflict between the Government and Maoists claimed some 13,000 lives. Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Angela Kane will also assess preparations for the election of a Constituent Assembly, already delayed from last year, which is to be held in April to draft a new constitution. The UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) was set up a year ago to support the peace process after the Seven-Party Alliance and the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) signed a peace accord in 2006. In addition to working meetings with UNMIN, Ms. Kane will hold discussions with Government officials and political leaders and travel to the country’s eastern region, where she will meet with the UNMIN team based in Biratnagar and visit the Maoist cantonment site in Ilam. Last month Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the decision by the CPN-M to rejoin the Interim Government and urged all parties “to swiftly move forward in the implementation of the agreements reached and lay the grounds for a peaceful, inclusive, and credible Constituent Assembly election.” read more

Tamil Nadu officers to return

by ,

The party cadres raised slogans against the Sri Lankan army and the Centre. Several people had come from Coimbatore to take part in the protest.  (Colombo Gazette) The two army officers undergoing training in Tamil Nadu will return to Sri Lanka following protests by the Tamil Nadu government, the army said today.Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha Jeyaram had raised still opposition to the training given to the Sri Lankan military at the Defence Services Staff College (DSSC) located within the Wellington cantonment area in Tamil Nadu. Last week around 400 members across 15 political outfits, including MDMK, Thanthai Periyar Diravida Kazhagam (TPDK), VCK, Tamil Desam, Tamil Ealam Viduthalai Students’ Organization, gathered at the Manekshaw Bridge, widely known as Black Bridge Junction in Wellington, and staged a protest against the training of two Sri Lankan officers. They demanded that the central government send the officers back home. read more

Andrew Coyne Shouldnt every riding be a battleground The problems with how

by ,

The safest thing to say about this election is that it’s “too close to call.” After all, aren’t the Liberals and Conservatives virtually tied in the opinion surveys? A weighted average of the major national polls, as calculated by the CBC’s Poll Tracker website, puts the Conservatives at 34.0 per cent, the Liberals at 33.7.Ah, but national polls, as any student of Canadian politics can tell you, mean nothing. Conservative support is heavily concentrated in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Tens of thousands of its votes are therefore likely to be wasted racking up massive majorities in a relatively small number of seats.The Liberal vote, by contrast, is more efficiently distributed, notably in Quebec, with its tight three- and four-way races, where a winning candidate might slip through with 30 per cent of the vote or less. So even though the Liberals are projected to win fewer votes than the Conservatives, they are also projected to win a solid plurality of the seats — perhaps even a majority.Then again, the polls are misleading in another way. A poll can project, with some uncertainty, the level of support for the various parties among the voting-age population. It is a more difficult matter to predict what proportion of each party’s supporters will actually turn out to vote. The Liberals benefited in 2015 from a surge in turnout, especially among younger voters, on the strength of Justin Trudeau’s sunny idealism. No such enthusiasm, or idealism, is detectable this time around.Aren’t the concerns of voters in Alberta every bit as important as those of voters in the Greater Toronto Area?It all makes for a close, unpredictable race. The Liberal challenge is the usual one: to round up the vote on the left without giving too much ground on the centre, appealing to those tempted to vote NDP or Green not to split the progressive vote lest the Tories get in.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The Conservatives, for their part, will also be fighting a two-front war, with the emergence of the People’s Party to their right imposing some constraint on their ability to reach across the centre. To date the PPC has not posed much of a threat — its support has stalled at around 3.0 per cent — but it is not impossible that it could break out of that range now that voters are paying more attention.And if Conservative support is not as soft as the Liberals’, neither is there as much potential for gain. While centre-right voters may be alienated by Liberal deficits and ethical lapses, they are as likely to mistrust the Conservatives on social and cultural issues. It will all likely come down to a few “battleground” ridings in suburban Toronto and Vancouver.That is as good a roundup as any of the conventional wisdom on the election. It’s probably true enough, as far as anyone knows. And yet it contains much that is wrong with how we do elections, and how we in the media cover them. Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press Begin with the last bit, about the “battleground” ridings, the subject of vastly disproportionate amounts of campaign resources and media attention. Surely the oddity of this will have occurred to someone: isn’t every riding supposed to be a battleground? Aren’t the concerns of voters in Alberta every bit as important as those of voters in the Greater Toronto Area? Isn’t every vote equal?Well, no: not under our current electoral system, known as “first past the post,” where each riding is represented by but a single member, who needs only a simple plurality of the vote to win. In such a system, it is true, whole regions of the country may be treated as “safe” in the pocket of one party or another, and as such barely worth campaigning in — a bizarre state of affairs in a democracy, but one that we have come to accept, unthinkingly, as “normal.”But in a system where each riding elects not one member, but several — where not only are supporters of the first-place candidate represented in Parliament, but others are as well, in rough proportion to their share of the vote — it is not possible to write off whole regions in this way. There are seats to be won, and lost, in every part of the country, and therefore an incentive for every party to campaign with equal vigour everywhere.So, too, the emphasis in the above on how the vote splits, and on the strategies parties devise, or demand voters adopt, in response. Perhaps we find it normal for voters to be told, in every election, that they cannot vote for the party they actually support, but must vote for a party they dislike to forestall the election of a party they detest. But in the vast majority of the world’s democracies that use some form of proportional representation the idea would seem absurd, not to say presumptuous. It is for voters to tell parties what to do, not the reverse. Liberals and Conservatives still neck-and-neck in election poll, despite SNC-Lavalin fallout Chris Selley: Trudeau’s mea culpa over his electoral reform debacle is truly mind boggling John Ivison: Vapid federal election ads unlikely to inspire indifferent electorate Third, there’s the emphasis on turnout. Every time you read about parties trying to “mobilize their base” or “depress” their opponents, that is what is meant. That’s another reason why our campaigns are typically so nasty, negative and narrowly focused. It’s not about expanding your support, but intensifying it. But in countries such as Australia, where voting is mandatory and turnout near universal, turnout strategies are irrelevant.Last, there’s the obsession with the horse race: where the parties are in the polls, and what strategies they are likely to pursue in response. That’s valid, up to a point. Some voters might find it useful to know which party is most likely to form a government. And strategy analysis may help voters understand why the parties behave as they do.But it’s a question of proportion. Some coverage of the horse race is in order, but not to the exclusion of what most voters, and readers, really want to know: who the candidates are and what they would do if elected.Again, this is partly a phenomenon of first past the post, and the winner-take-all mentality that accompanies it. The point of an election is not just to find out who won, but what the public wants. And the point of election coverage is not just to report who’s winning, but what the winners would do with the mandate they seek. An empty lectern stands where Justin Trudeau would have been if he attended the first leaders’ debate on Sept 12. read more

Companies looking to oneup each other with bigger flashier Stampede parties

by ,

CALGARY – There’s a fierce competition in Calgary right now and it doesn’t involve broncos or bullriders.Away from the rodeo, companies in the financial heart of oilpatch country are spending big bucks to throw the biggest, flashiest, most memorable Stampede party as the 10-day cowboy celebration marks its 100th anniversary.“This is the first year that I’ve seen that people are really trying to one-up each other,” said David Howard, president of The Event Group, which is throwing a soiree each night.“I consider this the Olympics of the Stampede.”The Event Group throws corporate parties for oilpatch investment banks and other firms that want to show their clients and staff a good time.When the financial crisis sent oil prices plummeting in 2009, some Stampede parties were scaled down or cancelled altogether.“This year it’s really just been a 180. It’s madness,” said Howard, who owes the pickup to an improving economy and the fact that it’s the Stampede’s centennial.“If you don’t tone it up this year … you’re kind of forgotten, so next year people aren’t coming to your event.”In the past, clients might have spent $5,000 to book a local band, but this year they’re shelling out $60,000 on major headline country music acts.As far as food goes, beef on a bun might have cut it in the past — but no longer.“They’re doing high-end salmon and caviar and fillet.”And the parties are featuring fancy specialty cocktails in addition to that old Stampede standby — beer.Howard estimates the Stampede made up about five per cent of his company’s business in past years, but in 2012 it represents about 20 per cent. The biggest bashes, with more than 2,000 guests, can cost as much as seven figures.Paddy Sorrenti says his company, Sorrenti’s Catering, is having its best year ever.In 2008, the caterer had a pretty good year, serving 25,000 guests pancakes and other Stampede breakfast fare. Things went downhill with the rest of the economy in 2009 and his numbers dropped to 14,000.This year, Sorrenti’s is serving 28,000 — and this time it’s not just plain old pancakes and bacon.“We’re doing smoothies and mini-yogurt parfaits and little pastries and little French toast sampler things with syrup in little cups.”A typical breakfast event for Sorrenti includes a couple of thousand guests. The big chowdowns cost upwards of $100,000.The company has almost three dozen different events planned during the Stampede. Most are daytime parties that companies throw for their employees.“There’s two seasons in catering in Calgary: There’s Christmas and Stampede. The other how many days of the year are basically just getting ready for those two,” said Sorrenti.When times are tough, parties are often one of the first things to be axed in a corporation’s budget, so “I like to think that Calgary’s doing well right now,” he said.“If they’re spending money on us, they’re spending money everywhere else and they can’t be doing all that bad.”Paul Vickers, founder of Penny Lane Entertainment, said this year has been “absolutely insane” when it comes to bookings at Cowboys, a rollicking night club that recently opened a new two-storey location by the Stampede grounds.Cowboys, which made headlines in 2007 when Prince Harry visited the club’s earlier location, is guaranteed to be full to the brim every night of the Stampede.But this year it’s booking up for the breakfast and lunch crowd, too, said Vickers.“The way we can get more money and do better business is getting busy earlier in the day.”Cowboys used to feed 1,000 people at lunchtime, but this year it’s more like 2,000 or 3,000.Big companies usually book their parties several months in advance of the hoopla. But smaller outfits, from upstart oilfield services companies to dentist offices, are rushing to book 10- or 20-person tables at Cowboys.“It is — for us in the hotel, restaurant, bar, service industry — bigger than Christmas,” said Vickers.Vickers sees the Stampede as a barometer for how Alberta — and Calgary specifically — are faring economically.In the boom around 2007, Calgarians were spending money like it was going out of style — something Vickers said wasn’t necessarily good for his business because it made it harder to find workers and drove up costs.“To be honest with you, it was a good top-end year, but the bottom end of 2007 wasn’t my best.”The recession years were tough, but now Stampede revellers appear eager to spend again — but not too eager.“They’re not as free with their money as they were in 2007. They’re still questioning what they get with it, but they’re quicker to pay.” by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 7, 2012 6:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Companies looking to one-up each other with bigger, flashier Stampede parties read more

Mens soccer Pivotal match looming for Buckeyes against No 25 Michigan State

by ,

“You only play eight conference matches and on Sunday that’s our fourth,” Bluem said. “If we can win that game and move to 3-1 that might give us a little separation from teams behind us and it will put us into that top group.” Jensen, who was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after his hat trick against Valparaiso, scored his team-leading fourth goal for the Buckeyes in the 3-2 loss to SIUE on Wednesday. Jensen leads the team with 11 points. “We will be ready, and we will come out and play as hard as we can,” Bluem said. “Certainly with the away game looming at No. 13 Maryland next week, it is a must win on Sunday for us.” The Spartans will provide quite the challenge. At 6-2 overall this season, Michigan State has limited opponents to only six goals through eight games. Their only in-conference loss came on the road last Friday to Maryland, who currently leads the Big Ten at 3-0-1. OSU senior midfielder Ben Fitzpatrick looks to gather possession of the ball in the second half against Rutgers on Sept. 18, 2016. Credit: Gene Ross | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State men’s soccer team has not yet performed to its potential this year. With matchups against Michigan State and Maryland on the horizon, the Buckeyes are in a stretch where they will face some of their toughest competition yet. They must be up to the task if they wish to keep their season alive. “Looking forward I think we have to focus on the Big Ten especially,” senior defender Austin Bergstrom said. “We are still in the race for the conference title. Having two wins and one loss right now is good. Hopefully we can build on that.” Now at the halfway point in the season, the Buckeyes stand at 3-7. They have yet to win a road game, with four of the team’s losses coming outside of Columbus. Not all is lost, however, as OSU began Big Ten play with a 2-1 record. For the Buckeyes, who finished first in the Big Ten a season ago with a conference record of 5-2-1, dreams of a repeat remain very much alive. A big reason for Sparty’s success has been the play of redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Jimmy Hague. Hague, who has started all eight games, has made 30 saves this season; good enough for a .833 save percentage and 0.76 goals against average. On offense, Michigan State is lead by sophomore forward Ryan Sierakowski. Sierakowski has tallied seven points for the Spartans on three goals, which were all game-winners, and one assist. Sierakowski has taken 23 shots on the season, nine more than the next most on the team.For the Buckeyes, winning the Big Ten is the first thing on their mind. They know the upcoming stretch can make or break those aspirations. “This is our top priority right now,” senior forward Danny Jensen said. “After that we just have to get some wins on the road and get back to .500. Then we have to try to make a little run to get to where we want to be.” OSU has lost its last two games, an away match at Bowling Green and a home contest against Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The Buckeyes will have a chance to improve that record this Sunday, as they take on No. 25 Michigan State at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at 2 p.m. The Big Ten remains wide open at this stage of the season. There is a four-way tie for second place at 2-1, which Ohio State shares with Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Penn State. “Obviously, overall our season isn’t going the way we wanted it to,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “The conference gives you that chance to forget about the nonconference matches. It gives you that chance to still make a statement.” read more

Soaring NHS negligence bill could have paid for 6500 more doctors

by ,

first_imgAnd it said the NHS had was facing increasing numbers of claims which had no merit – with almost 5,000 failed claims in 2015/16.On current trends, the NHS will spend £2.6bn a year on claims by 2022, says the report, which calls for wholesale reform of the legal system, including fixed recoverable costs for claims up to £250,000 to stop lawyers charging “disproportionate” legal fees.It also suggests that calulations for damages should be based on the loss of average earnings, not actual earnings. Baby Joshua Titcombe died after hospital staff failed to provide antibiotics for an infection  A Department of Health spokesman said: “We agree that clinical negligence costs are too high – so we’re taking action to drive these down. We have consulted on proposals to cap exorbitant payments going to lawyers, and NHS Resolution will give hospitals incentives to learn from mistakes so that costs are reduced just as patient care improves.” Jeremy Hunt  NHS spending on medical blunders could fund more than 6,000 more doctors, with costs soaring by more than 70 per cent in just five years, new figures show.The Medical Protection Society (MPS) said current trends will see annual spending hit £2.6bn within five years, and could threaten the survival of the NHS.The organisation, which advises more than 300,000 medics, called for sweeping changes to the legal system, to limit the amount spent on lawyers, and cuts to damages payouts.Its experts said increasing patient expectations and disportionate legal costs were fuelling costs which were not affordable.In the five years to 2015/16, the total number of claims has risen by 27 per cent, official figures show.But the costs rose by 72 per cent over the same period, with £1.5bn paid out in 2015/16, the report shows.The figure could pay for the training of 6,500 doctors, the report says.Many of the most expensive claims involve babies left brain damaged at birth.Since 2004/5, the value of claims against NHS maternity units for brain damage and cerebral palsy has risen from £354m to £990m, official figures show.The cases – often linked with a failure to monitor babies’ heart rates, to detect risks of oxygen starvation – fuelled maternity negligence claims of more than £1.2bn in 2015/16. Joshua with sister Emily center_img This means higher earners would not receive more from the NHS in compensation than lower earners for a similar claim.And it calls for a limits on future care costs, and a 10 year limit on making a claim.Emma Hallinan, director of claims at the MPS, said: “It is important that there is reasonable compensation for patients harmed following clinical negligence, but a balance must be struck against society’s ability to pay. If the current trend continues the balance will tip too far and the cost risks becoming unsustainable for the NHS and ultimately for society.”This is without doubt a difficult debate to have, but difficult decisions are made about spending in healthcare every day and we have reached a point where the amount society pays for clinical negligence must be one of them,” she said. The report found GPs are now twice as likely to be sued for clinical negligence as they were a decade ago, with the highest claim paid costing £5.5m.

Anger rises against Brazils President after their thrashing last night

by ,

first_imgBRAZILIANS CRIED, CURSED their president and covered their faces in shame after their beloved football team’s humiliating 7-1 thrashing by Germany in the World Cup semi-finals last night.After the fifth goal, well before half-time, hundreds of people left their expensive seats at the stadium in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte.A section of the crowd chanted obscenities against the players and President Dilma Rousseff, who during the cup had mostly enjoyed a reprieve from protests over the record $11 billion spent to host the tournament.The tears began well before the final whistle, with the third German goal in the first half causing children and adults to start bawling in the stadium and in public screenings across the continent-sized nation.As people streamed out, police reinforced security inside and around the stadium, but no incidents were reported there.Others around the country shouted at their televisions and abandoned public screenings as the Selecao suffered the biggest defeat of its 100-year history.“Neymar must be vomiting at home watching this disaster. The horror,” said Marina Genova, 54, watching at a popular bar district in Sao Paulo, referring to Brazil’s injured star.Amid the deluge of goals, a downpour only added to the already gloomy mood of thousands of fans in Brazil’s canary-yellow jersey at the official “Fan Fest” on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach.Two dozen fans scuffled, forcing police to intervene.In Sao Paulo, several buses were torched in a parking lot but police could not confirm whether the attack was linked to the defeat.Brazilians were already concerned about the team’s chances after Neymar broke a vertebra in the quarter-final victory over Colombia.But they never thought it would be this bad.Beth Araujo is a 24-year-old a biology student, she said:This is a terrible match and Brazil without Neymar are terrible. I hate this match. It’s embarrassing to lose like this. “The only good thing is I think it will affect President Dilma in the election. But all our politicians are even worse than the team.”Rousseff said she was “very sad” and “sorry” about the result.Shame of ShamesBrazil had hoped to exorcise the ghost of its defeat to Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro; a national trauma dubbed the “Maracanazo” because it was played in the Maracana Stadium.This time, TV commentators were talking of the “Mineirazo,” after the Mineirao Stadium, with the sports website globoesporte.com calling the defeat the “Shame of Shames.”But Jessica Santos, a 23-year-old photo student, was taking the massacre in her stride.“The cup is back in Brazil for the first time in 64 years so of course we’ll cheer until the end.If Brazil wins, we party, if Brazil loses, we still party. It would have been worse to lose to Argentina in the final.Others turned to social media jokes to ease the pain, posting pictures of Rio’s iconic Christ the Redeemer statue covering its face in shame – or even replaced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.It’s a disaster The insults against Rousseff, who is seeking re-election in October, showed that tensions remain following massive demonstrations that rocked the country last year when Brazilians demanded better health care and education.Some Brazilians have voiced concerns that Brazil’s failure to win the World Cup could spark more protests and clashes.Karina Marques, a 17-year-old footballer who watched the game at a street screening in Rio attended by 30,000 people, said:It’s a disaster. It will be chaos. People will break everything. They’re going to be furious.At a squatter camp of homes made of wooden planks outside Brasilia, people turned off their televisions in disgust before the end.In tears, Maria Jose Costa Almeida, 35, asked: “Why spend so much on stadiums, bring the cup to Brazil, to win nothing?”- © AFP, 2014Read: ‘The most extraordinary, staggering, bewildering game’: The reaction to Brazil’s night of shame>last_img read more

Legends of Tomorrows Music Moment Falls Flat

by ,

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. DC TV Comes to NYCC, Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Grin & More DC NewsOur Favorite TV Superheroes Ranked Legends of Tomorrow has been consistently great this season. While I’m generally happy about that, it does have a downside. It makes the occasional lackluster episode stand out all the more. Even though last night’s episode did plenty right, it wasn’t enough to make up for every opportunity it missed. We start in a guitar shop in the 1950s where a young musician wants to buy his first guitar. The one he picks happens to have been owned by Robert Johnson, the man who, according to legend, sold his soul to the devil for guitar skills. The boy is drawn to the guitar, and the lights go all crazy as he plays it. The terrified proprietor gives the young man the guitar and asks his name. It’s Elvis Presley.This week’s anachronism involves The King and a cursed guitar, and its effects on the Waverider are hilarious. We immediately know that something happened to make Elvis not a thing, and that has a ripple effect all throughout history. Instead of Guitar Hero, Zari plays Trombone Hero. Rory’s rat’s name is Josh Groban. Nate’s pomade never caught on, so he doesn’t have any. It’s fun watching them grow more confused about what happened. They finally figure it out, and head back in time to Elvis’s uncle’s church. I have to say the actor who plays the young King is really good at it. He has that attitude, the sneer and the all-important hip-shake that makes sure all the girls in town get the front pews at church.Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West (Photo: Robert Falconer/The CW)It also makes Zari’s totem start carrying her into the air, inspiring a satanic panic in the small church. That’s all the evidence the Legends need to piece together that the lost totem is in the guitar. They start to hatch a plan to get the guitar away from Elvis, but Wally grabs it immediately. Having a speedster on the team is going to take the other legends some getting used to. Wally just wants so badly to help; he doesn’t realize that he’s kind of disrupting everyone’s flow. But hey, he gets results. You can’t argue with that.Unfortunately, losing the guitar shakes Elvis’s confidence. They replace it with a non-totem replica, but he can feel it’s not the same. He bombs a live show, and explains that his old guitar lets him feel like his brother, who died in the womb, was playing with him. As the Legends on the ship find out, that’s because the guitar is actually haunted. The totem embedded in it is the Death Totem. And it’s capable of leveling a whole city, which is what caused the anachronism in the first place. But a record needs to be made, so Nate convinces the Legends to let Elvis record one song with the cursed guitar. After that, they can take it back and hopefully Elvis will have the confidence to make Rock and Roll history without a haunted instrument.Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Maisie Richardson- Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixe, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West and Tala Ashe as Zari (Photo: Jack Rowand/The CW)And hey, the young King makes one hell of a record. His uncle fears that might be literal. He seizes the record and has the sheriff throw Elvis, Nate and Amaya in the jailhouse for the night. That means it’s Zari and Wally’s time to shine. Wally wants to handle things his usual speedster way, but Zari lets him in on why they do things the way they do them. It was a nice, natural way for Wally to be added to the team, while not letting the addition of a speedster become a cheat code for every situation. Some situations, Zari explains, require a more delicate touch. Wally and Zari have an honest discussion with Elvis’ preacher uncle, and he ends up giving the music a chance. That’s when the real trouble starts.The totem reacts with the music as it plays on the radio and a swarm of ghosts attack the church. It’s not the flashiest, or most exciting battle, but it’s fun watching Zari and Wally work together to ward off the ghosts. They’re bonding over their Pac Man skills, and it’s cute. I only wish the episode had spent more time focusing on their story. Instead, the focus shifts to Elvis Presley, whose dulcet tones are needed to put the spirits to rest. This is where the episode’s shortcomings become too obvious to ignore. Elvis’s rendition of “Amazing Grace” not only soothes the ghosts, but it also gives Nate and Amaya their music moment. It’s the one part of rock and roll that she likes. They start dancing and the rest of the church joins in.Tala Ashe as Zari and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West (Photo: Jack Rowand/The CW)It’s all too cheesy, and it grinds the episode to a halt for nothing. The episode began with the promise of a town being nearly destroyed because of magic rock and roll. And this is all we get. Some cheap ghost effects, and a dull rendition of “Amazing Grace.” No matter how good this kid’s Elvis impersonation is, it can’t save this scene. It’s not helped by the fact that he’s obviously not playing the guitar.This episode is also the point where Legends of Tomorrow’s ignoring of racism in history starts feeling super lame. It’s never been the show to really engage with those issues. It’s not the kind of story this show wants to tell. That’s usually OK, until we come to an era that, in the grand scheme of things, wasn’t all that long ago. We still have a clear picture of what the world was like back then. Outside of a brief shot where the Legends get some sneers when they attend church, the racial tensions of the era are never brought up again. I don’t expect everyone in 1950s Memphis to be screaming racists, but Nate and Amaya dancing and kissing in the middle of a church in that era would get a few stares at the very least. Issues of race are given lip-service and then handwaved away, and that sucks.Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel and Maisie Richardson- Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixe (Photo: Robert Falconer/The CW)What’s even worse is the importance placed on Elvis above all other artists. Nate has one sentence where he mentions the black musicians that… inspired Elvis, to put it charitably. After that, the actual creators of rock and roll get about as much recognition from the Legends as they got from Elvis in real life. To build an episode around Elvis makes sense. He was an important figure in the development of popular music, and there’s a lot of fun to be had with his life and personality. To pretend that he was the sole arbiter of rock and roll, that without Elvis it wouldn’t exist, borders on being offensive. I know Legends of Tomorrow likes to focus on big historical icons, but just this once, I wish they explored more of what was going on in the Memphis music scene at the time. There are a ton of stories there that are way more interesting than Elvis’.It’s too bad because a trip to 1950s Memphis, even with Elvis as the focus could have been so much better. The show just didn’t do much with the period or with Elvis. The jokes about what would happen if Elvis never made rock and roll mainstream were funny, but we’ve come to expect more from Legends of Tomorrow. There is so much opportunity for playing around with history in this era, and most of it’s left on the table. This is an episode where they find out what the missing totem is, and get their hands on it. That should be a big deal, but it isn’t. They see a thing; they want it, they get it. It’s not exciting. You know an episode has problems when you’re wishing the Darhks had shown up to cause some trouble. But maybe they’ll make good on all this next week. The episode ended with the totem shaking ominously in its box. That could lead to something more meaningful. I hope.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Objects in MoonSetting Video Are Further Than They Appear

first_img Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img If I had to choose, death-by-crushing-moon sounds like a pretty cool way to go.Fortunately for the handful of people perched atop Mount Teide during last month’s full Flower Moon, that was not the case.“These people are not in danger,” NASA said of a stunning video, shot by photographer Daniel López, that showcases May’s monster Moon setting behind the Teide volcano in the Canary Islands.“What is coming down from the left is just the Moon, far in the distance,” the agency assured viewers.Captured the morning of May 30 in Tenerife, the clip admittedly looks like an Internet illusion created to shock and astonish. But, as NASA points out, the dazzling imagery is 100 percent real.“Luna appears so large here because she is being photographed through a telescopic lens,” according to the Astronomy Picture of the Day description. “The people pictured are 16 kilometers [10 miles] away.”And despite its high-speed action, the video is not a time-lapse—”this was really how fast the Moon was setting,” NASA noted.The full Flower Moon, named by Native Americans who used lunar phases to track the seasons, takes its cue from the blossoms that tend to “spring forth in abundance” in May, The Old Farmer’s Almanac reported.Some Algonquin tribes new this full Moon as the Corn Planting Moon (which seems pretty self-explanatory) or the Milk Moon; others called it Mother’s Moon.“The May Moon marked a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom,” the reference site said.Many of the folks on Mount Teide, however, were paying no attention to the lunar attraction; most can actually be seen facing the camera, watching the Sun rise behind López.If you missed last month’s full Moon (and you probably did), keep an eye to the skies on June 28, when the full Strawberry Moon arrives.last_img read more

Jolie lauds PM as examplesetting leader

first_imgSpecial Envoy of the UNHCR Ms. Angeline Jolie meets prime minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganabhaban Wednesday evening. Photo: BSSVisiting Special Envoy of the UNHCR Ms. Angeline Jolie has highly appreciated prime minister Sheikh Hasina for sheltering huge number of Rohingyas in Bangladesh saying Sheikh Hasina is an example-setting leader in the world.The UN Special Envoy came up with such remarks when she paid a courtesy call on prime minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganabhaban Wednesday evening.After the call on, prime minister’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed the newsmen.Angeline Jolie said, leaders like prime minister Sheikh Hasina are a very few in the world at this moment.The UN Special Envoy said, huge number of Rohingas have created serious burden for Bangladesh and it is a very tough task to manage such a big population in shelter camps.In this regard, she assured that the UN, UNHCR and the World Bank will work together to lessen pressure on Bangladesh.Angeline Jolie put emphasis on creating a congenial atmosphere for repatriation of the Myanmar Nationals now staying at Cox’s Bazar.She expressed concern about the future of Rohingya children saying their future is being destroyed although Bangladesh is trying to cooperate for their education, healthcare and other issues.Angeline Jolie mentioned that she heard about recent incidents of torture and killing of the Rohingya women at Rakhaine state of Myanmar.During the meeting, the prime minister welcomed the UN special envoy’s remark stating the Rohingya crisis must be resolved.The premier said Myanmar is Bangladesh’s next door neighbour and an agreement has been signed with the country for repatriation of its nationals.Sheikh Hasina, however, expressed her disappointment over delaying of implementation of the agreement.The prime minister said, nearly 11 lakh Rohingyas were given shelter in Bangladesh, while some 40 thousand new babies were so far born at the shelter camps.Referring to her government’s initiative of relocating the Rohingyas, the prime minister said, over one lakh refugees would get temporary shelter with better living condition there.In this regard, she elaborated bitter experience of the people of Bangladesh in 1971 when over 10 million people took shelter in neighbouring India.Sheikh Hasina also described the moments of her life when she along with members of the Bangabandhu family including her mother was in a state of house-arrest in 1971 as well as her life in exile for more than six years after the brutal assassination of Bangabandhu in 1975.The UN Special Envoy Angeline Jolie expressed her grief over listening to the painful stories from the Prime Minister.Radwan Mujib Siddiq Boby, nephew of the prime minister and prime minister’s principal secretary Nojibur Rahman were present.last_img read more

4 Industries in the Midst of Major Disruptions Thanks to Data

by ,

first_img Research suggests that some 90 percent of the data in the world today was created within the last two years, and our current output is an estimated at 2.5 quintillion bytes per day.Hiding in those virtually endless strings of ones and zeroes, we suppose, are all kinds of insights, ready to help improve the way we do business and live our lives. All we need is good business intelligence, which is what allows our best and brightest, to convert data into ideas we can actually act on.Big data is useful in nearly every industry, but over the past year, it’s been making a statement and disrupting the standard in four industries in particular. As 2018 approaches, let’s take a look at how analytics can continue to shape these verticals.Related: How is Big Data Streamlining Business Operations1. Urban planning.In just over 30 years, the United Nations predicts that two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas, with the greatest expansions happening in developing regions of Asia and Africa. Cities in these areas will be challenged to meet the needs of their citizens, so it’s important to understand not just how cities will grow, but how to make them smarter and sustainable as they do.Using a simulation like the classic SimCity game, where you build a virtual city and watch it grow and evolve, can be helpful in developing new urban areas, but it isn’t a perfect solution because of the way it uses generalizations about how the people and organizations within the city behave. These simulations can be useful as general guides, but without nuanced, intelligent accuracy, it can’t be as helpful as we need it to be.For example, MasterCard recently worked in collaboration with Cubic Transportation Systems to develop a new data analysis platform. They combined MasterCard’s transaction data with Cubic’s transportation data, analytics and visualization platform to develop the Urbanomics Mobility Project to provide insight into the way transit and economic activity are linked together in cities.2. Education and job training.Job training is a necessary and potentially costly endeavor for businesses. On-the-job training is a good solution since it allows for being trained while working. But supervisors and more experienced employees may not have the skills for training others. Just because they were good at their work and earned a promotion doesn’t make them effective teachers.Using e-learning in conjunction with training can make the difference. E-learning is a massive industry. In 2015, the market was worth somewhere around $165 billion. At a 5 percent increase every year, we should be hitting a $182 billion market this year and reaching close to $240 billion by 2023. As it continues to grow, we can expect to see data collection and analysis change the face of education as we know it.While education traditionally relies on test scores to determine how well a student has learned the material, not everyone learns the same way, and exams can easily be cheated, so grades are not necessarily an accurate reflection of someone’s ability to do the work.Related: Big Data, Big Deal! 5 Ways It’s Going to Be Revoluntionized In 2018This is why today’s e-learning firms are turning to solutions like Cloud Assessments, a virtual workspace designed to observe students to see if they can apply what they’ve learned in the same settings they would see on the job. The platform partnered with Sisense, a business intelligence and data analytics firm, to pull insights from the complex data and metrics so they could more clearly see how students were performing.The data can easily be shared with and understood by employers so they can learn more about the real skillsets their employees (and potential hires) have. It can help keep training budgets in line — since the evaluations can be used before paying for any kind of training, such as bonuses and application fees for industry certifications. And students benefit because they have a tangible way to explore their skills, learning what kind of additional training they may need to reach their career goals.3. Aviation.The flight industry faces some serious challenges in the form of outdated technology, increasingly complex FAA rules and infrastructure issues. Innovations in the industry have been mediocre at best over the last few decades, but business intelligence is beginning to change all of that.In 2015, there were 23 work-related fatalities among those working in air transportation, and 6.2 percent of aviation industry employees reported sustaining some kind of injury. The more we can automate processes in aircraft manufacturing, the smaller the window for human error becomes, thus reducing the risk of injury.Boeing spent more than a year analyzing data and making process improvements to build their Fuselage Automated Upright Build (FAUB) system. It’s a network of assembly robots, working in pairs, to install the 60,000 rivets into each fuselage on their 777 aircrafts. This means all the humans have to do is guide the fuselage panels into their correct positions.In the 1980s, there were only 9,000 detectable faults on a Boeing 767. Now, thanks to the use of intelligent sensors, it’s possible to find 45,000 faults on a Boeing 787. Using the Aircraft Health Monitoring Systems (AHMS), data from a single aircraft that detects a fault can be used to scan the entire fleet for the same problem.Related: In the Next Wave Of Innovation, Big Data Is Your Competitive Advantage4. Healthcare.There’s certainly no shortage of data in the healthcare industry, as many patient records have now gone digital and conventional x-ray film has been replaced by computerized images. Until recently, the issue has been how to analyze all the data, and what to do with the insights we pull from it.Right now, we see big data analysis becoming a priority for more in the industry. One report shows 83 percent of pharmaceutical companies plan to make analytics solutions a priority in the coming year. We also see it in advice databases such as Healthline, which provides more consumers with easier access to health information, a key component of improving preventative care.In the future, using machine learning and big data could mean your doctor works with information delivered via AI, delivering a diagnosis based on your symptoms and individual genetic code. While it will take quite some time for the industry to get to that point, it seems likely to make for more efficient and improved care.Big data changes the world.Industry disruption doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. Whether we like it or not, data is collected and stored at an alarming rate. It makes sense to put it to work to improve speed and efficiency, doesn’t it?

by ,

first_imgLooking for that last minute gift but you’re too busy running around to hit the high street?If you’re catching a flight this festive season, consider picking up a few presents in Duty Free at the airport. Kill a few Christmas robins with one Santa-shaped stone and finish off your last-minute gift shopping, as well as picking up a few souvenirs from your trip. This way you’ll be free to fly home, having made sure those stockings are well and truly stuffed come Christmas Eve. Let Skyscanner make Christmas simple for you, with 10 of the best Christmas present ideas for friends and loved ones that you can buy at the airport:1. PerfumeBuy that special someone their favourite designer fragrance for a fraction of the price at the airport. While you may have to shop around for a bargain, some signature scents often run on special offer and many Duty Free outlets sell limited edition gift sets that you won’t find anywhere else. Just be careful you don’t spend too long spritzing and sampling all of the perfumes on offer and miss your flight! 2. TobleroneIt’s the famous triangle-shaped chocolate treat found stacked on shelves in Duty Free all around the world. It’s also proven to be Dads’ favourite. So hit that sweet spot and pick up a stick, available in milk, dark and white chocolate. Just try not to finish the bar before you get home to wrap it up and pop it under the tree.Read more: 5 devilishly delicious holiday destinatons for chocoholics 5. A bookFor the bookworm in the family, give them something from their favourite author, or maybe broaden their horizons with the latest international bestseller. Find a selection of books at the airport to suit everyone’s literary tastes, from the latest chick lit to Nobel Prize-winning words. It may seem a little retro, what with e-readers and apps, but books are perfect for frequent travellers with a habit of forgetting chargers. 4. A handbagYou can never have enough of them. Clutch, tote or straight up shoulder, whatever their preferred style, be sure to bag a bargain on designer handbags and purses at the airport. This is the perfect place to pick up some luxury leather that they’re bound to love. 9. A bottle of wineKnow someone who’s something of a wine connoisseur? The airport is a good place to pick up international wines that may not be available at your local supermarket. Bottles are often on offer, usually as a multi-buy deal, so you don’t have to turn up at family lunch empty-handed and you’ll still have plenty left to help you recover from the whole affair come Boxing Day. Or if you need something a little stronger, how about a good single malt whisky?

Find a fashionable watch in Dubai’s Duty Free store, the largest in the world. Elegant or purely practical, give someone this timeless gift for a cool Yule.center_img 10. A cuddly toyMelt hearts with a soft toy stocking filler. Kids, old and young, can’t resist the fluffy charms of a teddy bear, especially one dressed as Santa, an elf, or something equally seasonal. Alternatively, you could always go for an airline mascot toy as a trip gift for someone small. 7. Fridge magnetsCapture the essence of your destination with a colourful piece of plastic that you can stick on your white appliances. Fridge magnets make lovely little stocking fillers and show someone that you thought about them while you were away (albeit at the very last minute while you were rushing to make your flight home).
