UNICEF concerned at grim situation in northeast India following floods

UNICEF is continuing its relief operation amid what it describes as a “grim humanitarian situation” with tens of thousands of people, including many children, still stranded in remote areas. Many of them are living in the open, staying on highlands along river tributaries or on the side of the road, and many have moved more than once to escape rising flood waters. “The displacement of people has been massive as people continue to flee or are evacuated from marooned areas. Many have settled in relief camps, but some of these have also been flooded,” UNICEF said in a press release. Some three quarters of a million people have been evacuated from their homes and villages while 285 relief camps have been set up to shelter the displaced from the flood-stricken area, according to the UN humanitarian chief. “This is damage on an extremely large scale,” said Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes at a press briefing today. “The Indian authorities are well equipped and are dealing with this from their own resources, but we have offered them help and there is the possibility of funding,” Mr. Holmes added.The relief and rehabilitation operation in Bihar could be needed for several months, according to UNICEF aid workers on the ground in the flood-afflicted area. The agency is concentrating their efforts on delivering life-saving supplies such as clean water, medicines and shelter equipment, much of which was already stored in the region before the floods struck Bihar.“Last year, flooding had affected other areas in Bihar and since then UNICEF had stockpiled emergency material there,” the agency’s spokesperson Veronique Taveau told reporters in Geneva.“Therefore, it was able to immediately help affected people with plastic sheets, hygiene kits and other aid,” she added. 5 September 2008The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) expressed grave concern today over the worsening humanitarian situation in Bihar, where more than 3 million people have been uprooted and at least 60 killed in the worst flooding to hit north-east India in 50 years. read more

US wants an action plan

The United States says the government has to have an action plan that deals with reconciliation issues.During a live video online chat with journalists from around the world including Sri Lanka, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Michael Posner said that as far as the U.S is concerned there is a big unfinished agenda in Sri Lanka. “Every country is evaluated by the same set of standards or criteria. It gives us a basis for making policy but it’s not a policy making document.  It’s a tool for diplomats on how to deal with a country,” he said. Asked if the human rights report can be used as a tool to take action against Sri Lanka or any other country, Posner said that the purpose of the report is to give the US a baseline of information on what’s going on in every country in the world. The online discussion was mainly focused on the U.S State Department’s annual global human rights report released recently. Posner recalled the discussions he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had with External Affairs Minister G.L Peiris in Washington recently.He said that a range of issues were discussed including issues which continue to be of concern and the U.S government will continue to push on those issues. “We are going to continue to raise those issues with the government,” Posner said in response to a question raised by a Sri Lankan journalist. “We are happy that there is a Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission but the government has to have an action plan that deals with reconciliation issues, deals with the issues of discrimination still going on in the north and a range of other things to incorporate the Tamil population into the life blood of Sri Lanka,” he said.He also said that the U.S has not singled out Sri Lanka and that U.S will apply the same standard under the universal declaration to Sri Lanka as is applied with other countries.Posner meanwhile rejected the characterization that the US has become an arbitrator to human rights around the world. read more

Annan welcomes release of Myanmar rights defender urges lifting of restrictions

While welcoming Myanmar’s decision to release human rights defender Su Su Nway, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today urged the authorities to follow this with further measures to promote national reconciliation, including lifting the remaining restrictions on democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and other political leaders.Mr Annan said such moves would “alleviate the political atmosphere in the country,” remarks that were also echoed today by the UN Special Rapporteur on Myanmar who repeated his call that the authorities “unconditionally release all remaining prisoners of conscience.”“This will be critical in facilitating national reconciliation and democratic transition, to which the Myanmar leadership has committed itself, again most recently during the visit to Myanmar by United Nations Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, Ibrahim Gambari,” Special Rapporteur Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said in a statement.Su Su Nway was released on 6 June, after being incarcerated since October 2005, and her health condition had been a cause for concern, the rights expert noted, adding that she had been the first person in Myanmar to successfully prosecute local Government officials for imposing forced labour. Subsequently, she was prosecuted by other local officials for alleged criminal intimidation.At the end of last month, Mr. Annan vowed to continue working for the release of Ms. Suu Kyi, whose house arrest the authorities extended, saying that “the international community cannot abandon the search for improvements in the difficult situation in Myanmar.” The democracy leader has now been under house arrest for 10 of the past 16 years.Welcoming the recent release of Su Su Nway, a spokesman for Mr. Annan today urged the Myanmar “authorities to follow up this measure with further action that will alleviate the political atmosphere and promote national reconciliation, including the lifting of remaining restrictions” on Ms. Suu Kyi and other political leaders. Special Rapporteurs are unpaid experts serving in an independent personal capacity who received their mandate from the now defunct UN Commission on Human Rights and will report to the newly established and enhanced Human Rights Council. read more

American Express says President Ed Gilligan dies suddenly after falling ill on

American Express says President Ed Gilligan dies suddenly after falling ill on flight by Alex Veiga, The Associated Press Posted May 29, 2015 1:18 pm MDT Last Updated May 29, 2015 at 8:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email American Express said company President Ed Gilligan died suddenly Friday after falling ill while flying on a corporate plane to New York.Gilligan, 55, was coming back from a business trip. The plane made an emergency landing in the U.S., an American Express spokeswoman said. She declined to say where Gilligan had been.“This is deeply painful and frankly unimaginable for all of us who had the great fortune to work with Ed,” said American Express CEO Ken Chenault, in a letter to employees Friday.Gilligan began working at the New York credit card issuer and global payments company 35 years ago as an intern. He was named president of the company in 2013 and reported to Chenault.American Express said he is survived by his wife and four children.In his time at the company, Gilligan worked on just about every area of American Express’ business, including commercial card, small business, merchant services, travel and, most recently, digital partnerships and payments.As a result, Gilligan was viewed as a potential candidate to eventually succeed Chenault, said Jim Shanahan, financial services analyst at Edward Jones.“In my mind, he would have probably been one of a few people on a very short list, at least of internal candidates, to replace him at some point,” Shanahan said. He noted, however, that he doesn’t believe Chenault, 63, is likely to retire any time soon.American Express has a “very deep management team,” and it’s possible someone else could be promoted to a more senior role and groomed for leadership of the company, Shanahan added.Gilligan’s passing comes at a challenging time for American Express.Earlier this year, the company lost its exclusive relationship with Costco and lost a U.S. antitrust suit. A stronger U.S. dollar also dampened its revenue in the first quarter.At the same time, the company has benefited from growing spending by cardholders.In April, the company announced it would increase the annual fee on some of its popular charge cards, while also noting it would be beefing up some of those cards’ benefits as well.The New York-based company’s shares are down 14 per cent this year. read more

Whats At Stake For Every College Football Playoff Contender

The college football playoff committee didn’t make much news when it released its new rankings Tuesday: The top seven teams remained the same. The biggest shift was for Mississippi, which lost badly last week and fell from No. 8 to No. 19.This was in line with what our college football forecast model expected. Because the model is based mostly on a historic analysis of the Coaches Poll, this means the committee behaved in the same boring way the coaches usually do — keeping the teams in the same order except when one drops a game and loses its place in line. So, our national championship and playoff odds look very much like they did Sunday.Here’s the more comprehensive version of that chart, which includes the entire Top 25 as they might appear when the committee releases its final standings Dec. 7.The lack of movement may also have been because last weekend was a sleepy one on the college football calendar. This upcoming weekend features much higher stakes, with the top teams facing more formidable opponents and entries into the conference title games on the line.I’m going to run through the top 11 teams in the committee’s rankings as the model sees their chances. In each case, we’ll look at how much a win or loss this weekend would affect the team’s playoff odds along with some more complex scenarios: for instance, if the team loses this week but wins its conference championship next week. Some of the more involved scenarios will expose potential blind spots in the model; we hope it’s still a helpful tool for thinking through the various possibilities.No. 1. Alabama Crimson TideOpponent: No. 15 Auburn on Saturday night. Alabama is a 70 percent favorite according to the model; win probabilities are derived from a simplified version of ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI).Overall chance of making playoff: 75 percentChance of making playoff with a win: 87 percentChance with a win but a loss in SEC Championship: 60 percentChance with a loss against Auburn: 48 percentChance with a loss but a win in SEC Championship: 75 percentChance with a loss and Mississippi State win (Alabama misses SEC Championship): 40 percentYou might expect the No. 1 team’s path to be straightforward. But Alabama’s is one of the more complex cases. That’s because there are really five scenarios to analyze. Two are straightforward: If Alabama defeats Auburn and wins the SEC Championship game, it’s in the playoff, very likely as the No. 1 seed. And if it loses twice, it’s probably out — unless there’s a ton of chaos behind it.The other three are trickier. Alabama could win this week then lose in the SEC Championship. It could lose this week and win the championship. Or it could lose this week and fail to make the championship, which will happen if Mississippi State wins.Failing to make the championship at all is the most dangerous for Alabama; their chances of reaching the playoff would be just 40 percent in that scenario. But the ranking of the other two is debatable.It’s hard to imagine Alabama would be left out if it lost to Auburn but made the SEC title game and won it. The model puts their chances at 75 percent in this case. And that seems too conservative — the alternative would probably entail no SEC team making the playoff at all. Sure, it’s technically possible. If Oregon, Florida State, Ohio State and either Baylor or TCU all win out, the committee would have to bump a zero- or one-loss conference champion for two-loss Alabama. That would be a predicament. But anything short of that exact scenario, and SEC fans from Gainesville to College Station would put aside their differences and come at the committee with pitchforks.A more acute danger might be a win against Auburn followed by a loss to Georgia in the SEC Championship. That way, the committee might get an SEC team into the playoff by choosing Georgia. Georgia needs some help to get into this position. The Bulldogs need Missouri to lose this weekend (Missouri probably doesn’t have the resume to make the playoff even if it wins out) and probably to defeat nonconference foe Georgia Tech on Saturday (otherwise, Georgia’s case will be too weak also).A lot of these questions boil down to how much the committee will emphasize conference championships as opposed to everything else. We don’t have much data on that yet, and neither do the folks in Tuscaloosa. Until we learn more, the only totally safe course for Alabama is simply to win twice.No. 2. Oregon DucksOpponent: At Oregon State on Saturday night (Oregon is a 90 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 76 percentChance with a win: 81 percentChance with a win but a loss in Pac-12 Championship: 42 percentChance with a loss: 32 percentChance with a loss but a win in Pac-12 Championship: 49 percentWe might ask the same question for Oregon: If it must lose again, is a loss this week or in the Pac-12 Championship better? This case is simpler because Oregon is already assured of making its championship game.The model’s answer is that it’s slightly better for Oregon to lose this week — even against unranked Oregon State — and come back to win the Pac-12 title. The danger of losing the Pac-12 Championship is that Oregon’s Pac-12 opponent could possibly get in ahead of them, especially if it’s UCLA.No. 3. Florida State SeminolesOpponent: vs Florida on Saturday afternoon (Florida State is a 74 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 59 percentChance with a win: 75 percentChance with a win but a loss in ACC Championship: 18 percentChance with a loss: 15 percentChance with a loss but a win in ACC Championship: 22 percentFlorida State isn’t at risk of being overtaken by anyone in its conference. (It’s clinched a spot in the ACC Championship and its opponent in that game, No. 16 Georgia Tech, almost certainly won’t make the playoff even if it wins out.) But the committee seems to be down enough on FSU that it probably can’t afford a loss at all. Some of FSU’s problem is strength of schedule, as it has been all year. Neither Florida nor Georgia Tech is likely to impress the committee as an acceptable loss for the Seminoles, even if it wins the other game.No. 4. Mississippi State BulldogsOpponent: at No. 19 Mississippi on Saturday afternoon (Mississippi State is the underdog; it has a 41 percent chance to win)Overall chance of making playoff: 33 percentChance with a win: 74 percentChance with a win and an Alabama win (Mississippi State misses SEC Championship): 77 percentChance with a win and an Alabama loss (Mississippi State advances to SEC Championship): 65 percentChance with a loss: 4 percentMississippi State has to win this week against Mississippi. FPI has them as underdogs to do so. But the Bulldogs’ chances of making the playoff will more than double to 74 percent if they do.But now we’re going to get a little crazy. Surely, things would be even better for Mississippi State if it won while Alabama lost, which would get them into the SEC Championship game?The model says no: Instead, the Bulldogs should be rooting for Alabama!Here’s why: If Mississippi State wins this week and completes its regular season, that’s probably good enough. It’s already No. 4 and will have notched another big win, on the road, against a ranked rival. Sure, it could eventually be surpassed by a team like TCU, but it could also see a team like Florida State ahead of it lose. It’s a reasonably sound position.But now imagine that Mississippi State wins this week and makes the SEC Championship but loses that game. Instead of a one-loss non-champion, it’s a two-loss non-champion — not so attractive. Furthermore, Alabama would also be a two-loss non-champion in this scenario and one that beat Mississippi State head-to-head late in the regular season. The risk-reward ratio would be poor for the Bulldogs.No. 5. TCU Horned FrogsOpponent: at Texas on Thursday night (TCU is a 65 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 53 percentChance with a win: 79 percentChance with a win if current top four also win this weekend: 50 percentChance with a loss: 5 percentTCU was helped by the committee this week, which left it at No. 5 even though it was idle. Indeed, the committee’s affection for TCU is a bit bizarre. TCU lost to No. 7 Baylor in October and the more sophisticated computer systems like FPI also have Baylor ranked higher. There’s some thought that Baylor will suddenly jump ahead of TCU if both teams win out. But if the committee has been placing TCU ahead of Baylor for weeks now despite its head-to-head loss, why would it suddenly shift gears?In any event, the model now has TCU’s chances of making the playoff at slightly better than even — and their chances will jump to 79 percent with a win against Texas. However, some of that possibility is contingent on one of the teams ahead of them losing. If the top five teams all win out, TCU’s playoff chances will be stuck at about 50 percent.No. 6. Ohio State BuckeyesOpponent: vs. Michigan on Saturday afternoon (Ohio State is an 89 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 42 percentChance with a win: 47 percentChance with a win and a win in Big Ten Championship: 73 percentChance with a win and a loss in Big Ten Championship: 6 percentChance with a loss: 2 percentThis is one of the simpler cases. Ohio State isn’t assured much of anything, but the team has about a 3-in-4 chance of making the playoff if it wins out, mostly because there’s likely to be some attrition ahead of it.One question is whether the Buckeyes will be ranked ahead of teams like Alabama, Oregon and Florida State if any of the three do lose this week. Those could be close calls for the committee. Not that it needs extra motivation against the Wolverines, but Ohio State might be helped by turning up with a dominant performance against Michigan instead of just getting by.No. 7. Baylor BearsOpponent: at Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon (Baylor is a 94 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 29 percentChance with a win: 31 percentChance with a win and a win against Kansas State next week: 40 percentChance with a loss: 1 percentThis is a low-stakes weekend for Baylor as compared with the rest of the top teams. The Bears are huge favorites against Texas Tech, and that probable win is already priced into their playoff odds. They have a bigger game against Kansas State next week.Unlike the six teams ahead of it, however, Baylor would be under 50 percent to make the playoff even if it wins out, according to the model.No. 8. UCLA BruinsOpponent: at Stanford on Friday afternoon (UCLA is a 69 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 13 percentChance with a win: 18 percentChance with a win and a win in Pac-12 Championship: 47 percentUCLA is about even-money to make the playoff if it wins out and has almost no chance otherwise.No. 9. Georgia BulldogsOpponent: vs. No. 16 Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon (Georgia is an 81 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 13 percentChance with a win: 16 percentChance with a loss: 1 percentChance with a win and a Missouri loss (Georgia advances to SEC Championship): 22 percentChance with a win and win in SEC Championship: 44 percentOur model thought Georgia might be at some risk of ranking worse than No. 9 in this week’s committee standings; it played a Division I-AA opponent last week, Charleston Southern, while several of the teams ranked just behind them won against (slightly) better competition.The reaffirmation from the committee helps keep Georgia dangerous. The Bulldogs have one more hurdle than UCLA — they need Missouri to lose to make their conference title game while UCLA is in with a win. But if they make the SEC championship and win it, their odds of making the playoff will be close to even.No. 10. Michigan State SpartansOpponent: at Penn State on Saturday afternoon (Michigan State is a 78 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 1 percentChance with a win: Still about 1 percentChance with a win, if at least 3 teams ranked ahead of it lose this weekend: 3 percentChance with a win, if at least 6 teams ranked ahead of it lose this weekend: 16 percentI list this case to demonstrate that when you’re on the outside looking in, you’d rather take a high-stakes path (like the one Georgia has). As I mentioned last week, Michigan State — locked out of its conference title game and with a middling opponent this week — just can’t do enough to impress the committee to jump into the top four. Even if there’s total and utter chaos ahead of Michigan State, its best-case scenario is probably finishing at No. 5 or No. 6.No. 11. Arizona WildcatsOpponent: vs. No. 13 Arizona State on Friday afternoon (Arizona is a 64 percent favorite)Overall chance of making playoff: 2 percentChance with a win: 3 percentChance with a win and a UCLA loss (Arizona advances to Pac-12 Championship): 7 percentChance with a win and a win in Pac-12 Championship: 24 percentArizona, like Georgia, at least has a specific path to follow: It’ll need to beat Arizona State, hope UCLA loses so it can make the Pac-12 title game, then beat Oregon there, then hope that one or two teams lose ahead of it. It’s not likely. But the committee might want to find a spot for the Pac-12 champion; it seems to like the conference; the committee ranks Oregon, UCLA and Arizona higher than the AP poll has them.There are a few other teams with a snowball’s-chance-in-hell. Arizona State’s case isn’t fundamentally that different than Arizona’s. Kansas State has an outside chance to finish as the Big 12 champion — again, without the benefit or risk of playing in a championship game — and could be more attractive than the likes of Michigan State if the committee is desperate. Wisconsin could also be a two-loss conference champion if it beats both Minnesota and Ohio State. The model says there’s almost no chance Missouri will get in even with an SEC title, but if the SEC goes haywire and the committee is struggling to represent it, who knows.In any event, here is the model’s probabilistic take on how the standings might look a week from now, accounting for both the uncertainty in this weekend’s games and in how the committee will react to them.CORRECTION (Nov. 30, 11:31 a.m.): A previous version of this article incorrectly claimed that the Big 12 uses head-to-head records as a tiebreaker to determine its conference champion. It does not. read more

Peabody Australia President George Schuller is new Chair of COAL21 Fund

first_imgSenior coal company executive and Peabody Australia President George J. Schuller Jnr. has been appointed by the Board of the COAL21 Fund as its new Chair. Schuller succeeds David Moult, who has joined the board of Yancoal Australia. The Board thanks Moult for his significant contribution as a board member and Chair. The board also appointed Bloomfield Coal Chairman John Richards as its new Deputy Chair.Schuller’s appointment marks the start of an exciting next phase for the Fund, which in mid-2017 announced a A$255 million commitment to fund a range of projects over the decade to 2027.COAL21 Fund Chief Executive Greg Evans welcomed Schuller’s appointment and said the value and contribution of Australia’s coal industry had never been greater. “The COAL21 Fund has a strong long-term focus on low emission technologies such as advanced coal generation and carbon capture and storage, and we are delighted to have appointed Mr Schuller to lead our efforts,” Evans said.Schuller said he was proud to lead the industry-funded COAL21 Fund in its wide-ranging work. “With our strong coal resource base, continuing demand growth and the need to reduce emissions, Australia is fortunate to have the COAL21 Fund to support research, development and demonstration of how modern technology can help reduce emissions from coal,” he said.Australia is a large domestic user of coal – which powers 75% of the National Electricity Market – a significant exporter of high-quality thermal coal for power generation, and produces some of the world’s best metallurgical coal suitable for modern steel making. Coal was also Australia’s second-largest export by value in 2017 at A$57 billion.The COAL21 Fund – owned by Australian coal producers and funded by a voluntary levy based on coal production – plays an important role as the black coal industry’s contribution to the research, development and demonstration of low emissions coal technologies.The future project portfolio for the COAL21 Fund includes CO2 capture, geological storage and abatement of fugitive emissions from coal mines. The Fund is also focused on options for the uptake of High Efficiency Low Emission (HELE) coal-fired generation in Australia.last_img read more

Short URL Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam https://jrnl.ie/4795204 center_img Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images Share7 Tweet Email1 22 Comments Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images HONG KONG’S EMBATTLED pro-Beijing leader has announced she will permanently shelve a loathed extradition bill that sparked three months of pro-democracy protests which have plunged the city into crisis.“The government will formally withdraw the bill in order to fully allay public concerns,” chief executive Carrie Lam said in a video statement released via her office.Withdrawing the bill is one of the five key demands of protesters, who have taken to the streets in their millions in the biggest challenge to China’s rule of Hong Kong since its handover from the British in 1997. The protests began as opposition to efforts by Lam’s government to introduce the legislation that would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China.After millions of people took to the streets, Lam suspended efforts to have the legislation passed but infuriated protesters by repeatedly refusing to formally withdraw it.The movement also evolved into a much broader campaign to include demands for an independent inquiry into alleged police brutality against the protesters, and an amnesty for those arrested.Another demand is for Hong Kongers to be able to directly elect their leaders – a major red line for Beijing that allows the city a limited degree of autonomy under a “one country, two systems” framework.Protester angerOnline message forums used by the largely leaderless democracy movement were on today filled with angry comments saying a withdrawal of the bill would not end the protests. “More than 1,000 people have been arrested, countless injured,” one widely shared message on the Telegram messaging app read.“Five major demands, not one less. Liberate HK, revolution now,” it added.For much of the last three months Lam has struck a defiant tone, appearing either unwilling or unable to make any concessions.Then an audio recording emerged this week of her telling business leaders she wanted to quit but she was hamstrung by Beijing, which now viewed the protests as a national security and sovereignty issue.In the audio recording, obtained by the Reuters news agency, Lam said she wanted to take responsibility for triggering the unrest with the extradition plans.“For a chief executive to have caused this huge havoc to Hong Kong is unforgivable,” an emotional Lam said in the audio recording.“If I have a choice,” she said, speaking in English, “the first thing is to quit, having made a deep apology”.But after the audio recording was released, Lam held a press conference yesterday to insist she had never contemplated resigning.Includes reporting by – © AFP 2019 10,694 Views last_img read more

18 escaped miniature horses returned to pasture

first_imgEighteen miniature horses are back home after escaping their pasture and wandering onto Northeast 88th Street near Andresen Road.Four Clark County Animal Control officers responded to the intersection where they found the horses in the northeast corner of the road at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.Witnesses reported that the animals were on the road, but when Clark County sheriff’s deputies first responded, the horses were already out of the way of traffic, animal control manager Paul Scarpelli said. The 18 horses had escaped by going underneath the fence of a nearby pasture, Scarpelli said. Animal control officers corralled the animals, ushering them back underneath the spot in the fence from where they had escaped, he said. Within about an hour to an hour and a half, the animals were back in the pasture and the owner was notified and repaired the fence, Scarpelli said.last_img read more

First full Aladdin movie trailer takes a magiccarpet ride onto screens

A full trailer for the live-action Aladdin movie has materialized.The trailer for the Guy Ritchie-directed film was released Tuesday during Good Morning America, just a month after footage from the upcoming Disney movie came out at the Grammy Awards.  Will Smith plays the prankster Genie, a role made famous by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated version. Mena Massoud plays Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. Smith’s blue-skinned appearance in the Grammy footage already has sparked plenty of social buzz. But as the new trailer makes clear, blue is an optional choice for this Genie. There are times when he’s not tinted in that color, whether to attend a party or just to lounge around.Massoud is loving his whole new world. “Still pinch myself sometimes at the idea of playing this iconic character,” the actor tweeted. “His journey in this film is only something I could have dreamed of playing with. This trailer is only a sliver of the adventures you’ll see this May.”    1 Tags Ok, the musical numbers in the new #Aladdin are looking pretty spot-on 🕺 pic.twitter.com/KbCr5WjG3d— Fandom (@getFANDOM) March 12, 2019 Disney Yikes.

Chevrolet For 2020, GM has also introduced a new 3.0-liter diesel inline-6. Putting out 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, it’s available on higher trims of the Silverado, including LT, RST, LTZ and High Country. Chevrolet still hasn’t divulged towing or fuel economy specs for this engine yet, but we’ll find out those figures before the diesel goes on sale this summer.GM has also seen fit to mate its 5.3-liter V8 with its 10-speed automatic. It’s standard on LT Trail Boss and available on High Country. Lesser trims like LT and RST make do with the same engine, but it’s tied to the older eight-speed automatic. The Silverado Custom trim has also been updated to include an available 2.7-liter turbocharged I4.In terms of tech, Chevrolet brought down some bits from the Silverado HD. The regular Silverado now packs 15 different camera views, including the clever “transparent trailer” feature that uses cameras to show the driver what’s behind the trailer while driving or backing up. The Silverado is now also available with adaptive cruise control, which uses a single camera (GM tends to prefer camera-based ACC over radar) to maintain a set distance with the vehicle ahead, even as speeds rise and fall. It’s available on the LT, LTZ and High Country trims. 12 Photos 2019 Chevy Silverado 2.7T review: Turbo tradeoffs Chevrolet Preview • 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2.7L Turbo: A better base offering 2019 Ford F-150 review: Popular pickup keeps on truckin’ Share your voice 0 Post a comment Trucks Chevroletlast_img read more

Save those cans aluminum recycling returning to Bethel

first_imgHold onto those aluminum cans. Recycling is returning to Bethel, and ONC’s Environmental Coordinator Mary Matthias is leading the way. KYUK traveled with Matthias to what is potentially the largest site of used cans in Bethel and ground zero of where Matthias’ work will begin.Listen nowMary Matthias opening a conex of aluminum cans at the abandoned Bethel Recycling Center.(Photo by Anna Rose MacArthur, KYUK – Bethel)Transcript:KYUK: Okay, so this is the Bethel Recycling Center.Matthias: Yes, it is. We see a lot of the pop cans outside.The city abandoned the recycling center and all the recyclable material in it two years ago. The center sits just outside of the Bethel landfill.KYUK: They’re four conexes, and in two of the conexes, the doors are open and they’re these plastic bags filled with aluminum cans just spilling out. A lot of the bags are busted and the cans are just strewn across the gravel here.Matthias: They could be recycled instead of sitting here, wasting away. They still have value to them.Twenty-eight cents per pound to be exact. That’s how much ALPAR – Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling – pays for aluminum cans. But Matthias says ONC doesn’t expect to turn a profit, even though Northern Air Cargo has said it will fly 10 bags of cans a day to Anchorage, free of charge, for the tribal council.The abandoned Bethel Recycling Center.(Photo by Anna Rose MacArthur, KYUK – Bethel)KYUK: So you’re going to sort through all this by hand? All these conexes?Matthias: Yeah, I’ll be wearing rubber gloves, the kind that don’t tear.So far Matthias has two entities who’ve signed up to give her their cans: the City of Bethel and AVCP, the Association of Village Council Presidents. Other groups or residents who also want to recycle their cans can contact Matthias directly.KYUK: It kind of smells. Does that bother you?Matthias: I’m just glad it’s not summer when it’s hotter and the smell would be more intense.Matthias will start recycling cans when the green recycle bags arrive from ALPAR, which should be any day. She hopes to soon expand the program to recycle both No. 1 and No.2 plastic.last_img read more

Bharat movie review You might not regret watching it but skipping wont

first_img Rating Bharat Bharat movie reviewTwittercenter_img After the success of Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan, Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar collaborated yet again for Bharat. Huge expectations were associated with the movie for obvious reasons, but the film does not fully match up to the hype.STORYLINEBharat (Salman Khan) as a kid loses his father (Jackie Shroff) and younger sister (Gudiya) due to riots during India-Pakistan partition. He along with his mother (Sonali Kulkarni) and other siblings manage to shift to India, but his father and younger sister go missing in the chaos. In his last words to Bharat, Jackie assures him that he will come back with Gudiya, and gives him the responsibility to take care of the family.Little Bharat then starts doing every possible work – from shoe polishing to car washing, in order to sustain a livelihood for the family, while they take shelter in his aunt’s home. Meanwhile, Bharat becomes friends with Vilayati Khan (Sunil Grover), and the two eventually become part of The Great Russian Circus.Young and dashing Bharat is the main attraction of the circus, and Radha (Disha Patani), a trapeze artist in the same circus, is his love interest. Although Bharat and Vilayati were earning good money in it, the former decides to quit the risky job, and Vilayati being his best friend does the same. Bharat stillYouTube ScreenshotWith the discovery of oil in the Gulf region, Bharat and his friend join an Indian migration to the Middle East in the hope to earn quick money. There he finds Kumud (Katrina Kaif), a supervisor of the oil work, and it does not take much long for Bharat and her to fall in love with each other.Bharat’s life keeps taking unexpected turns, and eventually, he ends up working on Navy ships as well before taking charge of a small family business. A lot of drama and a bit of action keep unfolding, while Bharat and his family hold on to the hope of seeing their missing loved ones someday. Bharat stillYouTube ScreenshotPERFORMANCESSalman Khan mostly keeps a straight face in his varied avatars, but he is impressive in the emotional scenes. The actor flaunts his acting ability well in one particular touchy moment towards the climax. Katrina Kaif has certainly grown as an actress. She is no longer just a glam doll.Sunil Grover does not have a typical comic role in the film, but he keeps throwing subtle funny lines that add humour to the plot. Disha Patani does not have much to showcase her acting skills. Other supporting cast did a decent job. Bharat stillYouTube ScreenshotPOSITIVESBharat is high in terms of emotional quotient. It very well depicts the plight of people from both sides, who lost their loved ones during the partition. Salman and Katrina’s chemistry again sparks well. There are a few scenes that tickle your funny bones too. Songs are good. Bharat stillYouTube ScreenshotNEGATIVESBharat loses its gravity when certain silly moments are inserted in the film for no good reason. The silliest sequence in the film shows African pirates, who hijack a ship, dancing on Amitabh Bachchan’s songs, and they free all the hostages unhurt only because he is a fan of Hindi music.The movie often gets sluggish, making it monotonous. Although the songs are good to listen, there are too many that disrupt the flow of the film. Overall, the film lacks the expected spark that we expect from a Salman film, especially directed by Ali. Bharat stillYouTube ScreenshotVERDICTBharat is one film that you can watch once, but it won’t be a loss even if you skip it. It is entertaining at certain parts, but it falls short of expectation in various other aspects. Overall, Bharat is just a little better than the average film.last_img read more

Play Tetris in your living room with Tetris Link board game

first_imgIf you look at the earliest computer games, you’ll notice a lot of them were an attempt by programmers to turn an existing card, board or table game into a bunch of ones and zeroes. Pong, for example, is a simplified digital version of Ping Pong: the earliest Unix games were simple text based versions of Chess, Checkers and Go Fish, while even the earliest adventure games like Rogue and Nethack were attempts to recreate pen-and-paper Dungeon and Dragons.Of course, somewhere along the line, game developers realized they had far more options to exercise their imaginations making games on computers, and now you’d be hard pressed to translate any computer game to a form you could play on a table. That’s why I’m fascinated to see this board game version of Tetris called Tetris Link creep out of the latest world Toy Fair. Basically, it takes the Tetronimo concept and applies it to a Connect 4 style gameplay mechanic, in which players must use their tetronimos to link three or more pieces together, while other players try to block them any way they can.Sure, it’s not really Tetris without being able to wipe out four rows at once by dropping in an I piece, but even so, heck, I’d play this. If only he set played a chiptune rendition of “Korobieniki” as you dropped your pieces.Read more at Pocket Lintlast_img read more

Police force to roll out cycling officers in Bermuda shorts

first_imgPolice officers dressed in Bermuda shorts will start patrolling tourist areas on bicycles from this weekend, deputy traffic police chief Michalis Katsounotos said on Tuesday.“The presence of police on bicycles will be apparent and will be aimed more at advising than punishing,” Katsounotos said, adding that the scheme will be piloted over the weekend in Ayia Napa and Protaras, weather permitting.The programme will be expanded to other coastal towns during the first ten days of August if there is no delay with the tender for the purchase of 14 bicycles and other necessary equipment.The plan is a result of a March workshop attended by participants with links to the tourism sector, including the police force, the foreign and interior ministries, the Lifesaving Federation, NGO Reaction, the Cyprus Bartenders Association and other organisations working with tourists.Attendees discussed increased safety measures for another bumper tourist season.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
