Amid slowdown Tata Steel to cut capex to Rs 8k cr in

first_imgKolkata: Facing headwinds amid a slowdown in the economy, Tata Steel Ltd on Saturday said it is likely to revise the planned capital expenditure for the 2019-20 fiscal to Rs 8,000 crore from Rs 12,000 crore. The steel sector is expected to see a pick up in the second half of the year, a top company official said. “We have given a guidance that the capex will be 20-25 per cent lower than the original plan between Europe and India (operations)… our original estimate was Rs 12,000 crore for the Tata Steel Group… it will now be around Rs 8,000 crore,” Tata Steel CEO and MD T V Narendran said. Of the Rs 12,000 crore, the steel major had initially planned to spend around Rs 8,000 crore on India operations. “Both sides (India and Europe) will take a cut,” Narendran told reporters here after the launch of the company’s steel retail store –’steeljunction’.last_img read more

MARCA poll: Cristiano is best overseas sports star of 2013

first_imgRabat- A poll conducted by the Spanish leading sports newspaper has voted Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the best overseas sports star of 2013.   24, 5 % of those participating in the poll voted in favor of Cristiano Ronaldo followed by the holder of Formula 1 title Sebastien Vettel (21%) and NBA star Lebron James (16%).                                            2013 had been outstanding for the Portuguese international whose decisive goals and assists helped his country to book a seat in Brazil’s 2014 World Cup with a play-off win against Sweden. Real Madrid’s number one might seal what has been the finest year of his professional career yet with a second Ballon d’Or on January 13th after he lifted his first prestigious trophy in 2008 during his heydays with Manchester United. The 28-year-old has scored 69 goals in 2013, more than his Ballon D’Or rival Leo Messi who scored a total of 45 goals over the same season. Ronaldo is currently La Liga’s top scorer so far with 18 goals in just 16 Liga appearances this season and he is well on course for a second consecutive Pichichi prize.The Madeira-born is the favorite star to win the Ballon d’Or ahead of the winner of the last four years editions Leo Messi whose injury left him behind in the race to win his fifth, and Bayern Munich’s Frank Ribery who, in spite of winning every trophy this season with the Bavarians, is still coming up short in terms of one-on-one stats against CR7.In the Women’s poll, it was the Tennis player Serena Williams who was nominated best overseas star of 2013. U.S swimmer Missy Franklin (11%) and Jamaican sprinter, Shelley-Ann Fraser- Pryce (9%) completed the poll’s top 3.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

Six countries dominate clean energy patents UNbacked study finds

The study, jointly produced by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the European Patent Office (EPO) and the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD), found that the six nations, led by Japan, hold nearly 80 per cent of all patents in the field of clean energy.It looked into some 400,000 patent documents and aimed to examine the effect of patents on the worldwide transfer of such technologies, including solar photovoltaic, geothermal, wind and carbon capture.The report also contains the first-ever survey on licensing practices in the clean energy arena.“Far from being a drag on economies and innovation, international efforts to combat climate change have sparked technological creativity on low-carbon, resource-efficient Green Economy solutions,” said UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner. “The challenge now is to find ways in which these advances can be diffused, spread and transferred everywhere so that the benefits to both economies and the climate are shared by the many rather than the few.”Patentis and clean energy: bridging the gap between evidence and policy found that patent activity surged with the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, showing that political decisions can be crucial in stimulating the development of technologies considered to be crucial in confront climate change.Patenting rates in several clean energy technologies have grown 20 per cent annually since then, outpacing traditional energy sources of fossil fuels and nuclear energy, the study said.It also found that there is limited licensing activity in developing countries, but 70 per cent of survey respondents said they are prepared to offer more flexible terms when licensing in poorer nations. 30 September 2010Innovations in clean energy technologies are concentrated in six countries – Japan, the United States, Germany, the Republic of Korea (ROK), France and the United Kingdom – according to a new United Nations-backed study. read more

Deutsche Bank CoCEOs Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen to step down John

FILE – In this April 27, 2015 file phtoo Co-CEOs of Deutsche Bank Anshu Jain, right, and Juergen Fitschen talk to each other during a press conference about the further strategies of the bank in Frankfurt, Germany. Deutsche Bank said Sunday, June 7, 2015 that Jain and Fitschen will resign. John Cryan will succeed Jain in July 2015 and will become the sole CEO in May 2016. (AP Photo/Michael Probst) Deutsche Bank: Co-CEOs Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen to step down, John Cryan to take over BERLIN – Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen will step down early as co-CEOs of Deutsche Bank, which has struggled with legal issues and disappointing profits.They will be replaced by John Cryan, a British member of the company’s supervisory board, the bank said Sunday.Jain and Fitschen became joint chief executives of Germany’s biggest bank in 2012, succeeding Josef Ackermann, and had contracts running through March 2017.Deutsche Bank AG said that Jain, 52, and Fitschen, 66, had decided “to step down early from their roles” but gave no reason for their decision.It said that Jain will step down June 30 but has been asked to remain with the company as a consultant until January. The bank’s supervisory board asked Fitschen to stay in his job until the next annual general meeting in May 2016 “to ensure a smooth transition.”Cryan, 54, will become co-CEO in July and take sole control when Fitschen leaves. He has sat on Deutsche Bank’s supervisory board, the German equivalent of a board of directors, since 2013.Cryan was president for Europe at Singaporean investment company Temasek from 2012 until last year. He was previously chief financial officer of Swiss bank UBS AG.Jain and Fitschen have sought to move the bank past lawsuits and legal issues that in some cases date back years and stressed the need for it to change its culture. Still, those issues have continued to cast the bank in an unflattering light.In April the bank agreed to pay $2.5 billion to authorities in the United States and Britain to settle allegations bank traders rigged important market interest-rate benchmarks used to determine rates on a variety of debt.Unrelatedly, Fitschen and two predecessors went on trial that month on charges of attempted fraud for allegedly colluding to deceive judges in a long-running legal battle with a now-deceased media mogul, Leo Kirch. Fitschen and the other defendants have denied any wrongdoing.Deutsche Bank recently announced a reorganization that will involve spinning off its Postbank branches in Germany, closing offices in some countries and eliminating less-profitable business at its investment banking division. by Geir Moulson, The Associated Press Posted Jun 7, 2015 7:26 am MDT Last Updated Jun 7, 2015 at 1:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Cyclist accused over womans death claimed riding without front brake was like

first_imghe fixed wheel track bicycle that was allegedly ridden by Charlie Alliston A cyclist a ccused of killing a mother of two by ploughing into her on a racing bike had compared the experience of riding without a front brake to being in a stunt video, a court heard.Charlie Alliston, then aged 18, was allegedly riding at 18mph when he mowed down Kim Briggs as she crossed Old Street, east London.The 44-year-old HR consultant, who had been on her lunch break, suffered “catastrophic” head injuries and died in hospital a week later.Alliston, who was riding a fixed wheel track bike with no front brake, which is not legal on the road, is said to have shouted at her as she lay mortally injured, later blaming her for the collision in posts online.  Kim Briggs, who was killed Credit:PA “I was intending to get food from Shoreditch for me and my girlfriend, but something came up, so my girlfriend asked me to waste time for 30 minutes.”I have then gone left into Shoreditch and come onto Old Street,” he said. “I was cycling at a safe and reasonable speed personal to myself. I was capable at the time of controlling it.”Alliston said he shouted twice after spotting Mrs Briggs. Asked why he shouted, the defendant replied: “To make the pedestrian aware of my presence so they were aware if they were to then cross the road.”He said he directed a second shout towards Mrs Briggs and slowed down as he approached her and manoeuvred his bike to avoid her.Alliston said: “After the collision I just jumped straight back up to my feet, turned around, saw what happened and then went blank.”He added:” At the time of the accident I believe I did see Mrs Briggs come out onto the road with a mobile in her hand.”Alliston denied the Planet X bike he was riding on February 12 last year was responsible for the collision with Mrs Briggs. Charlie Alliston, 20, arrives at the Old BaileyCredit:John Stillwell/PA Prosecutors claim he could have avoided a collision had a brake been fitted.Jurors were told that Alliston talked of removing his front brake from his Cinelli bike in a tweet in February 2015, comparing the experience of riding it to being in a “Lucas Brunelle movie”.The court heard that the stunt rider makes “alleycat” videos, in which he rides around cities including London “doing dangerous stuff” such as weaving in and out of traffic, narrowly avoiding pedestrians and going into bus lanes. Alliston replied: “Not because of that bike I was unable to stop, no.”Mr Penny said: “I’m suggesting to you that, had you had a front brake, or rather been on a bike which did have a front brake, that could or would not have happened.”Alliston said: “No. I feel, regardless of whether the brake was on the bike, it would still have happened.”I did everything, to be honest, I needed to in the situation.”Mr Penny continued: “Is your position, had you been on a butcher’s bike, with the world’s best brakes, this would still have happened?””Yes,” said Alliston. “I made the necessary adjustments to my speed.” But Alliston, who admitted to not wearing a helmet, denied copying the film-maker Lucas Brunelle, or enjoying taking risks.”I wouldn’t say I drove recklessly or at any time dangerously,” he told the court. “At all times I would know what I’m doing and completely responsible for my actions.”He added: “I did not get a kick or enjoyment out of not being safe.” Alliston, from Bermondsey, is on trial at the Old Bailey where he denies manslaughter and causing bodily harm to Mrs Briggs by “wanton or furious driving” under the 1861 Offences Against the Person Act. On the day of the crash, Alliston posted a comment on an online news article, claiming: “In no way whatsoever was this my fault”, the court heard.He later wrote on an internet forum for fixed bike enthusiasts, how he twice warned Mrs Briggs to “get the f— outta my way,” jurors were told earlier in the trial.”It is a pretty serious incident so I won’t bother saying oh she deserved it, it’s her fault. Yes it is her fault but no she did not deserve it,” he wrote. Prosecutor Duncan Penny QC, cross-examining Alliston, suggested “fixies” are popular in urban areas such as Shoreditch, where some riders view them as “stylish”.He asked Alliston: “It’s far from uncommon for people riding track bikes or ‘fixies’ without front brakes to not wear a helmet. It’s part of a look, isn’t it?”The defendant said: “It’s not necessarily down to a look. It is the rider personally.”Alliston, now 20, claims he had no idea it was a legal requirement for a front brake, insisting it would not have made any difference when he saw Mrs Briggs come into the road with a mobile phone.”I tried to go around,” he said. “Having a brake, I wouldn’t have had enough time to pull it.”It was a few split seconds prior to the impact, which caused the impact, so a brake at the time wouldn’t have made a difference.” Mr Penny suggested: “The characteristics of that bike and the ability to stop are such that you didn’t have enough time to avoid the collision with Mrs Briggs because of the characteristics of that bike.” Charlie Alliston, 20, arrives at the Old Baileycenter_img The fixed wheel track bicycle that was allegedly ridden by Charlie Alliston when he crashedCredit:CPS/PA Kim Briggs, a mother of two, died after being knocked downCredit:Metropolitan Police/PA he fixed wheel track bicycle that was allegedly ridden by Charlie Alliston when he crashed By the day of the collision, Alliston was working for a scaffolding firm. Alliston took to the witness stand on Thursday wearing a white shirt and jeans.He said he had worked as a courier for three different companies based in central London for around six to eight months from mid-2015, having dropped out of sixth form, where he was studying photography and business studies.He told jurors he used the same Cinelli brand fixed-gear road/track bike, which was not fitted with a front brake when he bought it, making around 20 deliveries a day.He said he did put a front brake on the cycle “at times”, but was never made aware of the legal requirement for it, adding he never had an accident in the course of his work.His barrister, Mark Wyeth QC, asked: “Were you aware at any point in your life up to the collision on February 12, 2016 that there was this regulation that ‘fixies’ had to have a front brake?” “No,” said Alliston.In January last year, Alliston bought a £700 Planet X bike second-hand for £470 telling the vendor he used to be a courier and wanted to use it for track cycling. “It’s not my fault people either think they are invincible or have zero respect for cyclists.”The prosecutor described the comments in court as “pretty unattractive”, but Alliston denied it was a show of “bravado”, adding: “I do hold my hands up and admit everything that got said in that time was stupid and not thought through, and it was not meant.”The trial continues.

FactCheck Was damage to the ozone layer caused by nuclear testing

first_imgNuclear testing is not the cause of the ozone layer depletion we have experienced….Human emissions of long-lived chlorine and bromine compounds, including CFCs and halons, have led to the observed ozone depletion.FactCheck asked Danny Healy-Rae for evidence to support his claim, but he did not respond.However, there is at least some scientific research on this issue, though relatively little.Studies on a possible nuclear link The aftermath of a nuclear bomb test in Nevada in 1952. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesOne major study in 1975 analysed the possible effects of the 1961-1962 series of nuclear tests by the US and Russian governments, and a 1970 test by France.The theory with nuclear testing is that it produces nitrous oxide, which is an ozone-depleting substance.The 1975 study observed an association between the nuclear tests and a very small depletion in ozone (a few percent), but crucially found that that depletion “lies within the probable error of available ozone measurements”.Which is to say, it wasn’t statistically significant.An earlier significant study, in 1973, speculated that the 5% increase in ozone between 1963 and 1970 may have been caused by the cessation of nuclear testing in 1962.However, this is obviously speculation rather than positive proof, and it was challenged by yet another study in 1976, which looked for an effect on ozone depletion from nuclear testing and concluded “there is little evidence of such an effect”.Finally, a high-profile 2008 study used scientific models to predict massive depletion of the ozone layer in the event of a nuclear war.This is clearly an entirely different scenario to the occasional nuclear testing pointed to by Danny Healy-Rae – the study based its conclusions on a war involving 100 nuclear explosions, each with the force of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima at the end of World War II.And secondly, it’s also ultimately speculation.Conclusion Source: Oireachtas.ieThere is some evidence which suggests a possible very small correlation between nuclear testing in the 1960s and ozone levels at that time.However, there is no evidence that nuclear testing played a role in the progressive, long-term depletion of the ozone layer which was observed from the early 1980s until around five years ago, when a recovery began.On the other hand, there is abundant evidence that exponentially increased ozone depletion during that period was caused by human commercial and industrial products emitting ozone-depleting substances.And despite Danny Healy-Rae’s somewhat mocking reference, this includes products such as hairspray.Healy-Rae’s claim was that ozone depletion was caused by nuclear testing, and that it was not caused by human emissions of gases.We rate this claim FALSE. THE DÁIL RATIFIED the Paris Agreement on climate change last Thursday, but not before some lively debate by TDs on all sides.In particular, Independent deputy Danny Healy-Rae made some extraordinary statements about the causes of climate change and damage to the ozone layer, claiming: It was nuclear testing.(Send your FactCheck requests to, tweet @TJ_FactCheck, or send us a DM).Claim: Nuclear testing, not emissions from human activity, caused ozone depletionVerdict: FALSEWhat was said: Source: can watch a video of Healy-Rae’s claims, above.Our focus is on these statements: Find more FactChecks here Wednesday 2 Nov 2016, 8:01 PM Short URL Thankfully now, it’s mending and it’s curing and it’s not anything to do with policies in any countries in recent times, but the damage was caused by nuclear testing in the pacific ocean.THE FACTSThe Basics Follow TJ_FactCheck on Twitter Share50 Tweet Email1 By Dan MacGuill They told us about the ozone layer, that it was greenhouse gases and that it was cans of hairspray or whatever. But they never told us that it was nuclear testing. 92 Comments Ozone layer – a region of the earth’s stratosphere containing a high density of a gas called ozone (O3), which absorbs some UV (ultraviolet) light from the sun, and protects life on the planetStratosphere – the second layer of the earth’s atmosphere, between 10 and 50 km (6 and 30 miles) above the earth’s surface According to the EPA – the US federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency – and a joint report produced by NOAA, NASA, the European Commission, the UN and the World Meteorological Organisation, the ozone layer is, in brief, damaged in the following way:Two chemical elements called chlorine (Cl) and bromine (Br) destroy ozone when they contact it in the stratosphereChemical compounds that release chlorine and bromine into the atmosphere therefore contribute to ozone depletion, and are known as “halogen source gases“Some halogen source gases occur naturally, but a large subset of them are caused by human activity – these are known as “ozone-depleting substances” (ODS)Halogen source gases are released into the air near the earth’s surface and accumulateThey are then transported beyond the troposphere (the closest layer of the atmosphere to the earth’s surface, and what we all live in) and upwards into the stratosphereA chemical reaction between the chlorine and bromine in halogen sources gases, and ozone, causes the destruction of the ozone, and the depletion of the ozone layerCauses The ozone layer over the Antarctic on Sunday 30 October. Blue indicates the least ozone, while green and yellow indicate the most. Source: NASANaturalNatural ecosystems on land and in the oceans contribute to the halogen source gases that enter the stratosphere.According to NOAA, in 2012 natural sources accounted for 17% of chlorine and 30% of bromine in the stratosphere, where the depletion of the ozone layer occurs.Cycles in solar radiation also cause temporary changes in the ozone layer, but not long term, progressive depletion.Similarly, volcanic eruptions can have a very small but measurable impact on ozone levels.Man-madeSome of the major ODS (ozone-depleting substances) which release chlorine are: hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), carbon tetrachloride and methyl chloroform.Of all ODS, the one with the most damaging impact on the ozone layer is chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).Some of the ODS which release bromine include halons and methyl bromide.Many of these ODS are (or were historically) used in fridges, freezers, ice machines, air conditioners, water coolers, aerosol products, fire extinguishers, insulation and pipe covers.The landmark 1987 Montreal Protocol, a treaty signed by every UN member state, defined the nature and causes of ozone depletion, and listed specific ODS to be phased out of use throughout the world, which you can find here.Nuclear testingThe only thing we haven’t mentioned so far is what Danny Healy-Rae pointed to as the true cause of ozone depletion – nuclear tests in the Pacific Ocean.It is not mentioned as a cause by NOAA, the UN, NASA, the World Meteorological Organisation, European Commission, nor the EPA, nor anywhere in the Montreal Protocol, which is akin to the Bible of ozone depletion reversal.In response to our queries, NOAA told FactCheck: …They never told us that nuclear testing in the pacific ocean, 50 years ago, actually caused the serious damage to the ozone layer. 36,474 Views FactCheck: Was damage to the ozone layer caused by nuclear testing?

Nigel Farage has launched his new Brexit Party and therell be a

first_img Short URL Farage with Annunziata Rees-Mogg. FORMER UKIP LEADER Nigel Farage has launched his new Brexit Party, and announced he has a list of 70 candidates set to run for the outfit in next month’s European elections. In the wake of the late night deal struck by Theresa May and the leaders of the 27 remaining EU nations in Brussels this week, the UK must hold elections in May or face crashing out of the EU without a deal on 1 June. Farage is hoping to capitalise on disillusionment among supporters of the Conservative party after the prime minister failed to meet a series of deadlines she had set herself to exit the EU.“I genuinely believe right now this nation, we are lions led by donkeys,” Farage told his  Coventry launch event.  27,493 Views Farage has been forced to concede there have been, as he described them, “teething problems” in his nascent political party.The previous leader resigned last month after a series of anti-Islam tweets came to light, while another senior official was removed from his post, also due to the emergence of offensive social media posts (including one referring to a foreigner as “someone from a bingo bongo land”).Speaking earlier today Farage said the party was going to be going to be “deeply intolerant of all forms of intolerance”. At the launch, he said its first task would be to change politics, warning: “I said that if I did come back into the political fray it would be no more Mr Nice Guy and I mean it.”The European elections offer newer parties in the UK a rare chance to grab the national limelight and capitalise, in particular, on the woes of the Conservatives.An outfit called The Renew Party kicked off its campaign by promising to give a voice to “people from outside politics” who still view themselves as Europeans and believers in causes such as fighting climate change.It said it was “ready to speak up for disenfranchised voters who cannot rely on the Conservative and Labour parties”.The Tories meanwhile will have to face supporters frustrated by the party’s inability to lead the way on the biggest issue to face Britain in generations.Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay admitted last week that “asking the public to hold elections for an organisation we are meant to have left would damage trust in politics”.For Labour, the fact that the party includes both Brexiters and remainers could cause campaign problems and split voters.  Anand Menon, European politics professor at King’s College London, said: “It is hard to imagine a worse time for Labour and the (Conservatives) to face the only UK-wide proportional electoral contest.These elections could accelerate the fragmentation of a fragile two-party stalemate, providing an institutional foothold for new parties forged on the issue of Europe. Includes reporting from © – AFP 2019 Source: Nigel Farage/Twitter Share350 Tweet Email2 Image: Joe Giddens 41 Comments Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg and a former Telegraph journalist, is to run as a candidate for Farage’s new party. Speaking today, she said that while she had stuck with the Conservatives through thick and thin, “We’ve got to rescue our democracy, we have got to show that the people of this country have a say in how we are run”. Farage said in a BBC radio interview earlier that there was no difference between his new party and his former one in terms of policy – but that there was in terms of personnel. UKIP’s brand had become tarnished, he insisted, because it had “allowed the far right to join it and effectively take it over”. Responding on Twitter, current UKIP leader Gerard Batten insisted that Farage’s new party was just a vehicle for him and “not a teal [sic] political party”.  Apr 12th 2019, 3:45 PM center_img This is a lie. UKIP has a manifesto & policies. Farage’s party is just a vehicle for him. It is not a teal political party. Its only purpose is to re-elect him. His party is a Tory/Establishment safety valve. Yes there is a difference – our people aren’t self serving hypocrites.— Gerard Batten MEP (@GerardBattenMEP) April 12, 2019 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article The Brexit Party launches today. We need your help to change politics for good.— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) April 12, 2019 Friday 12 Apr 2019, 3:45 PM Farage with Annunziata Rees-Mogg.

Four in 10 new pensioners aged under 62

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Four in 10 new pensioners who received their first pension this month are aged up to 61 years old, and some are as young as 51, according to data from the Helios register of the Labour Ministry.Widespread fear in recent years of possible changes to the social security system, and loopholes in various laws allowing for retirement before the age thresholds of 62 (early retirement) and of 65 (full retirement) have prompted thousands of workers to apply for their pensions even earlier in their careers.In September, those receiving a pension for the first time and were aged up to 61 years accounted for 48.5 per cent of all new pensioners. This figure has dropped to 42.7 percent this month, according to the data. In February alone there have been 18,316 new pensions issued, of which 11,412 were main pensions and 6,904 were auxiliary pensions.According to the Helios system, total expenditure for the payment of these pensions (including the retroactive payment due to the delay in pension issues) amounts this month to 61.06 million euros.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

first_img Related Items:avon, discontinue Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Apr 2015 – Since February, AVON has discontinued selling its beauty products to 16 Caribbean countries citing a significant drop in sales and a strategic move to shore up its US market… this included the Turks and Caicos Islands. Manager of External communications, Lindsay Fox said AVON would no longer take orders from the Caribbean countries after February 20 despite having some 6.4 million sales agents in 100 countries. Among the countries where you can no longer order AVON are The Bahamas, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Bonaire, Curaçao, Dominica, Grand Cayman, Guyana, Haiti and the TCI. It seems sales for AVON has dropped in sales 11%, which equates to nearly $400 million in losses. Despite this, at least one agent we have spoken to said she has managed to continue her services to local AVON clients.last_img read more

Wellwishers bid Stuart farewell

first_imgAs one door closes, another one opens.So it goes for Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart, who bid farewell to the county Thursday after 10 years in elected office. He’ll leave his position this month to become Ridgefield’s city manager.But Stuart spoke more of coffee mugs than of doors in his farewell remarks Thursday night. Flanked by his wife, Heather, and in front of dozens of well-wishers, Stuart gripped a severely stained mug — the one he never washes — and spoke of its symbolism.“Every day, when I don’t wash this mug, it grounds me,” Stuart said. “It reminds me I’m just a guy with a dirty mug.”The dirty mug is a tradition of sorts. He had one while a law student at the University of Oregon, Stuart said, and he kept the tradition alive as a county commissioner.At Thursday’s farewell, he acknowledged that, despite being in the spotlight for the past decade, he felt uncomfortable being the center of attention.last_img read more

Sterling Hwy Closed For Due To Fire Behavior

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Update 1:30am – Tuesday from the Division of Forestry –Swan Lake Fire – Delays Along Sterling Highway ContinueBoth lanes of traffic between Adkins Road (MP77) and the intersection of Resurrection Pass Trail at the Sterling Highway (MP53) remain halted. Fire activity and the related smoke impacts are expected to continue for some time. This situation could last through the evening and into Tuesday. Update 9:35pm – Update from the Borough Office of Emergency Management: “It’s not great news but we do have a small update. Fire operations at Division of Forestry say significant fire activity on the Swan Lake Fire is anticipated to continue for quite some time. This means the traffic will be delayed longer. No specifics but we will post as we know anything, at least, again at 10 pm.” Free camping in the City of Soldotna is available at Centennial and Swiftwater for stranded motorists. The rodeo grounds are available for individuals with livestock or other animals. Update 8:45pm –According to the Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management, there is still no firm time when the Sterling Highway traffic will be moving again. The road is not closed but vehicles have been stopped because the fire activity near the road remains impassable. In addition, trucks are trying to do dust mitigation by laying down water.Updates maybe available in the next 30 to 45 minutes. Alaska State Troopers will sweep vehicle traffic along the affected area, and flaggers will be posted at the Adkins Road (MP77) to the east, and at the intersection of Resurrection Pass Trail and the Sterling Highway (MP53) to the west. Original PostThe Swan Lake Fire is backing north of Skilak Road towards the Sterling Highway. Both lanes of traffic are currently stopped due to the fire behavior at MP72. Firefighters expect smoke from the fire to affect the travel on the Sterling Highway for a limited time. From MP 53 to MP 77  Troopers are reporting: air quality poor, flames next to road, road closure, emergency vehicles on road, travel is not advised. Do not attempt to use Skilak Lake Road as a detour. It is anticipated that the closure may last a few hours, but smoke and fire conditions will dictate this. Updates will be posted as they are made available.last_img read more

Elon Musk unveils first Boring Company tunnel under SpaceX HQ

first_img The tunnel was originally designed to have the capability to transport vehicles on a pair of innovative electric skates that zip along at up to 150 mph (241 kph). However, that plan seems to have been given the kibosh for now, with Tesla vehicles that use “tracking wheels,” rollers that flip out from underneath the front of the car and keep it within the tunnel’s one-way lane.Shortly before Tuesday’s event, Musk tweeted an image of a Tesla Model X, on track, inside the tunnel, later clarifying that any autonomous electric vehicle, not just a Tesla, could use the system and that it would cost around $200 to $300 to install.

According to the Associated Press, Musk attributed the bumpy rides to the team running out of time and said the system will be “smooth as glass” when fully operational. Elon Musk shows off his Boring tunnel More Boring Company Taking a ride with Elon Musk inside Boring Company’s… Share your voice Welcome to the tunnel. The Boring Company Measuring 1.4 miles (2.3 kilometers) long and 14 feet (4.3 meters) wide, the test tunnel winds its way underneath Hawthorne and is estimated to have cost $10 million. This, Boring notes, is a fraction of the cost of traditional tunneling. It exists as a research and development tunnel for Boring’s aspirations of improving tunneling capabilities and creating new modes of public transport.  18 Photos Comments Tuesday’s event took place next to a Monty Python-inspired medieval watchtower constructed from the excavated debris cast off by Boring Company’s huge boring machine. Removing the dirt created by tunneling accounts for around 15 percent of the cost of boring holes. “Instead of paying for the dirt to be trucked away from site, we convert the dirt into bricks,” Musk said. “So we build bricks on site and then sell those bricks to whoever wants them.”At just 10 cents per brick, Boring suggests that this would pay for the cost of dirt removal and is a fraction of what you might pay at Home Depot. Musk also confirmed that Boring would attempt to make the bricks available for low-income housing for free.  garythesnail2Gary VI, the Boring Company’s snail in his pineapple-shaped habitat.  The Boring Company The team jokingly tweeted that the tunnel opening, originally scheduled for Dec. 10, was pushed back because The Boring Company needed a few extra days to make the snail habitat for one of its unofficial mascots, Gary. Boring machines are notoriously slow — a snail would be 14 times faster — and one of the company’s chief goals has always been to create a machine that can “beat the snail in a race.” It doesn’t appear that has come to fruition just yet.”It’s not easy beating that snail, by the way,” Musk joked at a press briefing before Tuesday’s tunnel opening. “It’s much harder than it may seem.” However, he did say he’s confident that refining Boring’s tunneling machine will eventually result in a 15-fold improvement to speed.Take that, Gary.The Boring Company has also landed a contract with the Chicago Infrastructure Trust to build the express loop system to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. In that version of the Loop, a modified Tesla X chassis will be used to ferry up to 16 passengers within a small pod running on the same electric skates. The service is expected to have pods leaving the station every 30 seconds and to be cheaper than a ride share service. It doesn’t stop in Chicago, either. Musk’s plans for The Boring Company also extend across Los Angeles, with the goal of building a line from the western neighborhoods to Dodger Stadium, and a 35-mile line of twin tunnels from Washington, DC, to Maryland that would take passengers between the two stops in approximately 15 minutes. 5 2:08 CNET’s Holiday Gift Guide: The place to find the best tech gifts for 2018.Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations — erupting volcanoes, nuclear meltdowns, 30-foot waves — with everyday tech.

Facebook Twitter Instagram are garbage says Linux founder Torvalds

first_imgGetty Images Count another person who isn’t “liking” social media these days.Linus Torvalds, the Finnish-born creator of the free Linux software that competes against Apple’s MacOS and Microsoft’s Windows to power computers, didn’t mince words when discussing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And in an interview this week with Linux Journal, he suggested it’s one of the biggest issues the tech industry is facing today.Linux Developer Linus TorvaldsLinus Torvalds Getty Images “I absolutely detest modern ‘social media’ — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. It’s a disease. It seems to encourage bad behavior,” he said in response to a question about the one thing he’d fix in tech today. “The whole ‘liking’ and ‘sharing’ model is just garbage. There is no effort and no quality control. In fact, it’s all geared to the reverse of quality control, with lowest common denominator targets, and click-bait and things designed to generate an emotional response, often one of moral outrage.”Torvalds, who first released Linux in 1994, is known within the tech community for being rather rude. But he isn’t the only one unhappy with social media. Surveys indicate that people’s opinions about social media have markedly dropped in the past several years, driven in part by issues of harassment, bad behavior and terrorism that have overshadowed everything else Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are used for.A root cause, Torvalds said, is anonymity.”When you don’t even put your real name on your garbage (or the garbage you share or like), it really doesn’t help.” Instead, he said, people shouldn’t be able to share or like things without proving their identity first.Facebook, Twitter and Instagram didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Researchers use DNA strands to build decomposable nanostructures

first_img Journal information: Nature Nanotechnology Nanostructures made of DNA strands can encapsulate, release small-molecule drugs More information: DNA assembly of nanoparticle superstructures for controlled biological delivery and elimination, Nature Nanotechnology (2014) DOI: 10.1038/nnano.2013.309AbstractThe assembly of nanomaterials using DNA can produce complex nanostructures, but the biological applications of these structures remain unexplored. Here, we describe the use of DNA to control the biological delivery and elimination of inorganic nanoparticles by organizing them into colloidal superstructures. The individual nanoparticles serve as building blocks, whose size, surface chemistry and assembly architecture dictate the overall superstructure design. These superstructures interact with cells and tissues as a function of their design, but subsequently degrade into building blocks that can escape biological sequestration. We demonstrate that this strategy reduces nanoparticle retention by macrophages and improves their in vivo tumour accumulation and whole-body elimination. Superstructures can be further functionalized to carry and protect imaging or therapeutic agents against enzymatic degradation. These results suggest a different strategy to engineer nanostructure interactions with biological systems and highlight new directions in the design of biodegradable and multifunctional nanomedicine.Press release © 2014 Explore further DNA can mediate the assembly of nanoparticles and polymers into multifunctional superstructures and control their interactions with biological systems, potentially allowing for applications in cancer imaging and drug delivery while mitigating the risks of toxicity associated with engineered nanomaterials. Credit: Leo Chou, Kyryl Zagorovsky, Warren Chancenter_img ( —A team of researchers in Canada has found a way around the problem of large nanostructures that are used to combat tumors, remaining in the body after they are no longer needed. In their paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, the team describes a technique they developed where they used DNA strands to tie together small nanostructures creating larger nanostructures, that over time—after a tumor had been reduced—broke down and left the body.

Citation: Researchers use DNA strands to build decomposable nanostructures (2014, January 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Over the past several years, researchers have discovered that nanostructures, built from nanoparticles can be used to deliver drugs directly to a tumor, killing it. This is preferential to chemotherapy because it harms only tumor cells, rather than healthy cells throughout the body. The down side is that the nanostructures are made of materials that are considered toxic if they build up in the body and worse, are a little too big for the body to break down and get rid of. Thus, the nanostructures remain after they are no longer needed. To get around this problem, the researchers took a very unique approach, they used DNA strands to tie small nanostructures together, creating a large enough structure to transport tumor killing drugs. But because they are tied together with DNA, they become untied as the body breaks down the DNA strands. Once loosed, the nanostructures revert back to groups of smaller structures which the body can process and get rid of.The concept was tested in mice, and results thus far indicate that the process worked as planned—the team was able to actually see the nanostructures as they appeared in the mouse urine, proving that the mice’s systems were able to remove the smaller sized nanostructures from the tumor site and pass them through to the renal system. The researchers report that their technique at this time shows promise, but of course, more work will have to be done to prove that the technique is safe, and that the nanostructures can hold together long enough to do their job. They believe their work will lead to new types of cancer killing agents, but they won’t be ready for use in humans for at least five to ten years.last_img read more
