Earthquake earlywarning sensors installed off coast of British Columbia

first_imgVANCOUVER – An earthquake early-warning system tested off British Columbia’s coast could give residents anywhere from 20 seconds to two minutes to prepare before a quake.The first-of-its kind warning sensors developed by Ocean Networks Canada is installed along the Cascadia subduction zone and when fully operating next March will be able to estimate location and magnitude of a megathrust earthquake.Greig Bethel of Ocean Networks Canada, an initiative of the University of Victoria, says the system is active even as more sensors are being installed in the area to increase accuracy.A simulated exercise was conducted Thursday in Vancouver on the 19-kilometre Canada Line stretch of the SkyTrain system, giving transit operators a chance to slow down trains and hold them at stations.British Columbia is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an active seismic zone where thousands of mostly small earthquakes are recorded annually by sensors in the province.Most of the quakes happen near the Cascadia subduction zone, an area where the Juan de Fuca and North American tectonic plates converge, stretching from Vancouver Island to northern California.“Ocean Networks Canada’s earthquake early-warning technology promises a new era of earthquake preparedness that will enhance the safety of both riders and workers on the Canada Line,” says Canada Line general manager Ron Powell.A news release from the network says to maximize warning time, it will focus on setting sensors as close to the Cascadia subduction zone as possible and on minimizing delays in data processing, communication, and delivery of warnings.Global Positioning System receivers will also be located with the seismic sensors to further refine the magnitude.Earthquakes release energy that travels through the Earth as seismic waves in two forms — secondary and primary waves.The primary waves travel faster but the secondary waves are the cause of severe damage and ground shaking.However, the sensors would detect primary waves to deliver alerts before the arrival of the secondary waves.“The detection of an earthquake by many sensors can provide rapid estimates of the location and magnitude of an earthquake as it occurs,” the release says. “This information can be used to determine the estimated arrival time and intensity of ground shaking at specific locations across a region, allowing protective actions to take place before the shaking hits.”The early-warning system can help reduce deaths, injuries and property losses, trigger trains to slow down, stop bridge and tunnel traffic, open bay doors at fire and ambulance halls, halt landings for incoming air traffic, and even allow surgeons to stop delicate procedures, the release says.last_img read more

DPR Koreas nuclear test threatens global disarmament efforts Ban warns

27 May 2009The recent nuclear and missile tests conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) jeopardize continuing global efforts to achieve nuclear disarmament, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has warned. Addressing Finland’s Parliament in the capital, Helsinki, yesterday, Mr. Ban said that the DPRK’s nuclear test on Monday, its second ever, and its subsequent launch of short-range missiles not only “create tension in the region,” but “will also pose serious implications to peace and security on the regional and global level.”Speaking to reporters following his speech, the Secretary-General said that the Security Council, which condemned Monday’s nuclear test in a press statement, can “start to take further measures corresponding to the gravity of this situation.”Joining the chorus of world leaders in speaking out against the test, he said it is in “flagrant violation” of the Council’s resolution 1718 from 2006, which demanded that the country “not conduct any further nuclear test or launch of a ballistic missile,” following its claims to have conducted a nuclear test in October of that year.Mr. Ban reiterated his appeal to DPRK’s leaders to “refrain from taking any further measures, which will deteriorate the situation, which will create tensions in the region, which will pose negative implications for the ongoing international community’s efforts to curb nuclear non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, as well as nuclear disarmament talks which are now going on between the United States and the Russian Federation.”DPRK authorities should abide by all commitments made to the international community as a member of the United Nations, he added.As a former Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and in light of the other roles he was involved in regarding the denuclearization process on the Korean peninsula, the Secretary-General said that he feels a greater “sense of responsibility about the situation” in the area.“All these experiences, and my direct involvement, made me feel much more frustrated by the lack of control as to the denuclearization process, as had been agreed in the Six-Party joint statement,” he said, referring to the September 2005 agreement – involving China, DPRK, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia and the United States – in which the DPRK committed itself to abandon nuclear weapons and rejoin the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).The DPRK’s only “viable option,” Mr. Ban pointed out, is for it to return to the table for talks.In his address to the Finnish Parliament, the Secretary-General also touched on climate change, calling for the Nordic nation’s support in wrapping up negotiations on an ambitious new pact to slash greenhouse gas emissions at this December’s UN conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.He also announced that the world body will shortly be launching a Global Vulnerability Alert, with information being collected in real-time and shared with Member States to monitor the social effects of the current global economic crisis.Before heading back to New York today, Mr. Ban met with former UN envoy Martti Ahtisaari, as well as Finland’s Minister for Foreign Trade and Development and a group of Finnish non-governmental organizations. read more

South Africa 50 per cent increase in rhinos poached in 2013

first_imgMORE THAN 1,000 rhinos were poached in South Africa last year, the government said today, as strong demand from Asia fuelled a 50 per cent jump in the illegal slaughter from 2012.“The total number of rhino poached in South Africa during 2013 increased to 1,004,” the environment ministry said in a statement.Rhino horns are prized as a status symbol in Asia and mistakenly thought to possess medicinal properties, even though they are composed of the same material as fingernails.In 2007 only 13 rhinos were reported poached in South Africa, but since then the numbers have increased exponentially every year.Illegally killedDespite drone and foot patrols, poachers appear to stay ahead of the security forces.Some 37 rhinos have already been illegally killed so far this year in South Africa, which is home to around 80 per cent of the world’s rhino population, estimated at more than 25,000.The famous Kruger National Park bordering Mozambique has borne the brunt of the poaching scourge.Sophisticated transnational criminal organisations illegally hunt the animals and hack off their horns which are then smuggled out of the country to Asia.A total of 343 arrests were made in the past year for poaching.Wildlife trade monitoring group Traffic warned that at the rate the killing is going:South Africa’s White Rhino population (is) ever closer to the tipping point when deaths will outnumber births and the population will go into serious decline.Julian Rademeyer, author of a book “Killing for Profit – Exposing the illegal rhino horn trade” sees no respite for rhinos because their horns have become a lucrative product.“We’re certain to see another record. We’re certain to see more than 1,000 rhinos being poached in 2014,” Rademeyer told AFP. “It will probably take a miracle to ensure that that doesn’t happen.”“This is about a product, rhino horn is a product. These syndicates don’t stop at one product, they want other products.“They want lion bones, they want reptiles, they want ivory. So once they’ve gained a foothold, it is getting very difficult to get rid of them.”Organised crime elements who have previously been involved in cash heists or bank robberies, are now “moving into rhino horn because the risks are far lower.”- © AFP, 2014Read: More than 300 elephants deliberately poisoned in Zimbabwe park>last_img read more

Google Chrome Metro app coming to Windows 8

first_imgWith news from Mozilla that a Metro version of Firefox was under way, it was all but certain that the Google Chrome team wouldn’t be far behind. Google has now confirmed that to be the case: a Chrome Metro app with enhanced touch functionality will be ready to roll by the time Windows 8 arrives later this year.It’s worth noting that Chrome already offers tablet-friendly features, and they’re not specific to the Android version. Touch updates have been popping up steadily in desktop builds for several versions. You needn’t look any further than the new tab page — with its generously-sized app icons and swipe gesture support. Chrome also already supports accelerometers and other sensors.The previous tablet work in Chrome has everything to do with Chrome OS. Last summer, we got an early look at Google’s on-screen keyboard and Omnibox tweaks for tablets thanks to the work of developer François Beaufort.With tablet features already baked in and Chrome’s minimal UI, it shouldn’t take too long for Google to whip up a Metro remake for Windows 8. Some back-end work will be required to take advantage of the new WinRT APIs, but that work could allow Google to get Chrome up and running on yet another platform: Windows Phone.Google hasn’t announced plans to do that yet, but it’s a very short trip from a Metro app on Windows 8 to a Windows Phone app. If it’s a possibility and provides an additional way to expand Chrome’s reach, Google might be willing to shuffle some developer resources that way.More at Ubergizmolast_img read more

MORALE HIGH IN SCORPIONS CAMP

first_imgBy Sulayman BahPlayers are in high mood ahead of the contest against Cameroon, sources close to the team camp in Morocco told Foroyaa Sport.The squad under the guidance of Swiss Coach Raoul Savoy, who is being assisted by Omar Sise, is beaming with confidence, after choosing Casablanca to do their preparations away from the glare of the press.The team is on the brink of camping in full house after most of its invited players have turned up. Real De Banjul’s Ablie Jallow, a local-based player, is the latest inclusion in the current set up.Jallow was the capital outfit’s show-winner in the previous campaign, though he could not guide Amat Cham’s men to retain the domestic gong, losing it to first-timers Gamtel.Alagie Jobe, who put on a huge show and withstood an all-firing South African frontline, is tipped to protect the goal with the Kenya-based Alagie Nyabally and Finnish-born Gambian, Sam Jammeh, to wait as surrogates.New inclusion Futty Danso, shunned for the SA match, will have to slug it out with Abdou Jammeh, Omar Colley and Kebba Ceesay for a starting place in the lineup.Pictured above flaunting his toned bicep, Sainey Nyassi has joined twin brother Sanna Nyassi in camp.Gambia would not be lacking in pace down the wings against the Indomitable Lions with the Nyassi brothers in the roster.Visitors Cameroon are without Clinton Njie, a striker with Tottenham Hotspur, but have been beefed up with Matip and Bassong rejoining.Cameroon is to arrive in Gambia on Friday the same day the scorpions will jet in from Rabat. ]]>last_img read more

Senate Introduces Bill For Reduced PFD Governor Threatens To Veto If Passed

With loss of leader Alaska Commons faces uncertain future

first_imgJohn Aronno, former managing editor for Alaska Commons (Photo courtesy of Alaska Commons)An influential web-site in Alaska lost its driving force earlier this week. For several years, Alaska Commons has brought news and commentary with a left-leaning perspective to tens of thousands of readers. With the departure of its managing editor, the group’s future remains unclear.Listen nowJohn Aronno started writing online about Anchorage politics more than a decade ago. After a stint working for a member of the city’s Assembly, he founded Alaska Commons in its current iteration along with a group of friends just over five years ago.“I guess we were just annoyed with the fact that a lot of stories that we saw that we thought mattered, we didn’t see getting covered,” Aronno said.Aronno, who’s earlier career included a stint as a touring rock musician, threw himself into the role of managing editor.The site has won plenty of journalism awards over the years, covering a mix of Anchorage and state politics, as well as original reporting on progressive issues, commentary and a whimsical weekly roundup of Internet memes. Sort of like a cross between an alt-weekly and a wonky politics blog, it kept growing, and Aronno said drew a monthly readership of 20 to 30 thousand people.“We’ve had some articles that had over a million views,” Aronno said.But maintaining a steady flow of content wasn’t easy, particularly with a small group of volunteer contributors.Aronno said the Commons never figured out a good revenue model, and the site typically only took in two or three hundred dollars a month from Google Ads. The pace and lack of income weren’t sustainable.“Literally for five years I did not have a day off for a vacation,” Aronno said. “Even if we went off for a trip somewhere, I was still running back to the motel getting articles set up for the next night.”But deciding to resign was a drawn-out process. Aronno said even the morning he woke up earlier this week and wrote a Facebook post announcing he’d step down, he was still 50-50 about the decision.The departure is a big deal for close-watchers of state and city politics because of the unique role the site filled. While Alaska Commons would sometimes break news, Aronno is quick to point out it is not a news site, and even pieces with original reporting departed from traditional journalistic standards for neutrality. Stories would frequently criticize conservative targets, and often wound up enmeshed at the center of disputes on controversial issues. Some commentators and politicians complained of being unfairly attacked on the site, notably during the 2015 mayoral election and a recent disagreement over whether an Assembly member inappropriately suggested there could be a terrorist training camp in the Mat-Su Valley.Aronno didn’t mind getting criticized for stories, but he hated when people would dismiss the site as just a “liberal blog.”“That’s what really would get under my skin, because I have spent five years fighting the charge that I’m not legitimate, that I’m not worth listening to, that I’m easily discredit-able,” Arrono said.Aronno said he isn’t sure what his next step will be. As for Alaska Commons, a crowd-funding page was set up before news of Aronno’s departure. A board member [Tonei Glavinic] said there’ll be a meeting this weekend to discuss options for the site.last_img read more

Trans poet returns to scene of crime months after bigoted burger attack

Then I felt something hit me.‘I turned around and there was mayonnaise on my shoulder and on my dress. Across the road was a guy staring at me and shouting “faggot.”‘Someone had thrown a burger at Alabanza on the packed bridge at lunchtime. The many passers-by who witnessed the attack did nothing.‘I think these attacks come from a place of jealousy and even desire. So often these men shout faggot. When really, I wonder if they want to say “I’m confused and afraid you.”Smash Burgerz | Photo: Photography Elise Rose, Art Direction Vasilisa Forbes, Make Up Umber Ghauri, Stylist Mia MaxwellThe attack is, unfortunately, a frequent part of Alabanza’s life. Speaking to Gay Star News just after anti-trans protesters hijacked Pride in London 2018, they tell us:‘The protest was an accurate resemblance of where we are at right now. Post this trans tipping point of visibility, has led to huge growth in some areas, but more violence for regular trans people on the streets.’But the burger attack has become the inspiration for a series of artworks by Alabanza.Next week they launch their new theatre show ‘Burgerz’ at the Hackney Showroom, which they hope will reclaim the burger attack back into their own narrative.However, before that, it inspired the monologue O/B/S/T/A/C/L/E which was recently published in Oberon’s Queer Monologues earlier in 2018.In this monologue, recorded for Gay Star News at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Travis returns to the spot of the attack before using lyrical poetry to recount the difficulties of everyday life – so many trans people face:[embedded content]The Oberon Book of Queer MonologuesO/B/S/T/A/C/L/E is part of a new collection from Oberon.The book ‘Queer Monologues’ is edited by Scottee, the comedian who is trying to redefine our approach to queer storytelling:‘The collection is about finding ways of talking about our histories and our love lives. As well as the intersections of what it is to be queer and black, and fat, or a woman,’ they tell GSN.However, O/B/S/T/A/C/L/E is originally from Before I Step Outside [You Love Me], Travis Alabanza’s debut chapbook – a collection of work.It features a mixture of images, poetry, diary entries and essays relating to their experience as a trans person navigating public space, being outside, and on public transport.The Oberon Book of Queer Monologues chronicles over one hundred years of queer and trans performance. It combines stage plays with spoken word and performance art. Moreover, the anthology aims to be an essential tool for artists seeking monologues as well as a guide to hidden queer theatre history.

Being gender non conforming, you learn very quickly that often you have to fight and defend for yourself – because no one else will.‘I think this is about taking things into my own hand. Taking the burger away from the bridge, onto …. my plate.‘But this isn’t just about a personal reclamation, this is also about making the burger everyone else’s problem too. No one did anything. No one stopped to ask if I was ok. And I want to find out why.’They hope the new show will bring attention to the daily violence that happens to them and other trans bodies.It’s another show in Alabanza’s pathway to becoming one of the most prominent queer artists in the UK.In 2016/17 they became the youngest artist in residence at the Tate Modern & Britain.Combining their art with activism, They also ran this year’s Tate Summer School, using art and the gallery to talk about gender.

Homebuyers Taking a Closer Look at Mortgage Disclosures

first_imgHomebuyers Taking a Closer Look at Mortgage Disclosures May 17, 2016 507 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, News More borrowers are taking a closer look at their mortgage documents before it’s too late, and more agencies are helping these borrowers understand what they’re getting into, well before new federal guidelines go into effect this fall, according to a recent survey by the American Land Title Association (ALTA), in conjunction with of the Mortgage Bankers Association and National Association of Realtors.The survey, which looked into 1,500-plus new home closings, showed that more homebuyers are reviewing their mortgage documents ahead of their scheduled closing, under new federal “Know Before You Owe” regulations that become mandatory as of October 3, 2015. Under the new regulations, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) requires homebuyers to receive a five-page closing disclosure at least three days before the closing of their mortgages.Despite the October date, many mortgage servicers are already using the disclosure, and consumers are happily studying the information. According to ALTA, 92 percent of borrowers surveyed are using the disclosure papers, a big leap from the 74 percent who used to tunnel through disclosure information prior to the five-page breakdowns.The survey did, however, show the continued need for all parties involved in a transaction to work together to ensure the consumer experiences a positive closing. According to the survey, consumers received valuable information about their transaction from loan officers (39 percent), title/settlement agents (30 percent) and real estate agents (29 percent), meaning that information for consumers is coming from a broad spectrum of professionals involved in the homebuying process.“Fortunately, consumers continue to view title and settlement agents as valuable resources that provide peace of mind and help them get the keys to their home,” said Michelle Korsmo, ALTA’s chief executive officer.This is not to suggest that homebuyers know all they need to know, nor that the CFPB has done all it’s could to make things clearer for borrowers. The survey, in fact, found that 12 percent of homebuyers in a purchase transaction using the closing disclosure were unsure if they had bought an owner’s policy. This compares to 8 percent of homebuyers who were unsure under the old regulations.That said, Korsmo is generally positive on the future of the disclosure, once the bugs are worked out.“While there remain challenges to complying with the regulation, title and settlement agents went to great lengths to prepare and train staff prior about the new process,” “she said.The CFPB announced it would clarify and provide additional guidance on the rule this summer.center_img Share CFPB Homebuyers Know Before You Owe TRID 2016-05-17 Scott_Morganlast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter A luxury landmark set

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterA luxury landmark set in the heart of a historic precinct, InterContinental Singapore is deeply rooted in the arts and cultural districts of Bugis and Bras Basah. Positioned in proximity to established historical enclaves including Arab Street and Kampong Glam as well as the bustling Waterloo and Albert Streets, guests are connected to an established network of more than 20 historical sites, national monuments, art institutions and museums. Embracing this connection to the cultural enclaves that surround the hotel, a specially curated two-hour guided Heritage Trail will be made available for all hotel guests from January 2016.Aimed at providing an experiential stay whilst showcasing the cultural and heritage aspects of Singapore, the Guided Heritage Trail is also designed in conjunction with the launch of newly renovated guestrooms and public spaces at the hotel. Paying homage to the character of the vibrant locale, the exciting journey, launched in partnership with the Society of Tourist Guides, will take guests through areas of interest in the vicinity of the hotel.Key highlights along the route include:Waterloo StreetA two-way street that stretches from Rochor Road to Bras Basah Road, the street was first named Church Street, after Thomas Church, who was resident councillor during the year of its construction. It was later renamed in 1858, and converted into a pedestrian mall to ease the problem traffic along the street, where many renowned religious landmarks currently stand today. These landmarks include the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, which features a hallmark of traditional Chinese temple courtyard architecture, first built during the Japanese occupation and the Sri Krishnan Temple which was established in 1870. Both temples are known for their intricate façade architecture.Albert StreetForming the junction of several streets, Albert Street started off as an unnamed side road in the early days of Singapore, before it was later built up extensively and named after Prince Albert, the consort of Queen Victoria in 1858. Originally lined with low, two-storeyed shophouses up till April 1981, Albert Street used to be known for the variety of food served till the early hours of the morning, alongside the vibrant night life scene. Today, the street serves as a pedestrian mall peppered with a trail of bazaar stalls and is no longer open to traffic.
