Sri Lanka to create youth centric development plan

Through the ‘#WeAre2030: Youth Dialogue and Incubation Programme,’ it is the vision of all partners to initiate a youth dialogue on entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership in Sri Lanka, so together we can achieve sustainable human development by 2030. (Colombo Gazette) Speaking at the opening session on UNDP’s work on youth and innovation, Jorn Sorensen, Country Director UNDP Sri Lanka stated “As UNDP, we remain committed to the youth empowerment agenda and having young people at the heart of our development work. Over the years we have remained as a key partner working to empower our younger generation. We are working both through UNDP-led initiatives and through inter-agency collaboration within the wider UN system to engage young women and men as transformative actors for change.”Finding one’s purpose, building one’s career is critical, especially as youth stepping into the world. Speaking about the private sector’s role in partnering youth in development, Ms. Saumya Perera, Head of Sustainable Business and Communication, Unilever stated “young people must be considered as partners in all our initiatives, which is why it is great for Unilever to be a part of #WeAre2030 to work together with as many young people alongside other partners”.Parallel to this, together with the Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure, the National Youth Services Council and the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) Sri Lanka, the 9 winning teams from the recently conducted social innovation hackathons ‘Hackadev’ in Badulla, Matara and Jaffna are currently in Colombo for the Incubation Programme where over the two days, their solutions will be guided with the support of mentors and seed funding. Addressing the youth at the opening session, Niroshan Perera, State Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs stated “It is by accelerating youth development, that we can mainstream young people in development. Hence we can fulfil our vision of creating a youth centric development plan for the country.” The Asia Pacific region is home to 60% of the world’s youth and in Sri Lanka, 23.2% of the population is young people.Through social innovation and entrepreneurship, young people can take control of their futures and have an impact in their communities. Hence this Dialogue comes under the Youth CoLab Programme, introduced by UNDP Asia Pacific, to promote the role of youth entrepreneurship as a driver for social change across 15 countries, including Sri Lanka. The two-day Dialogue, hosted by UNDP together with the Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure, the Ministry of National Policies and Economic Affairs, the National Youth Services Council (NYSC), the Information and Communications Technology Agency (ICTA) and Unilever brings together young people to create a youth dialogue on entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership in Sri Lanka so together we can achieve the future we want to live in by 2030. Sri Lanka will create a youth centric development plan for the country, the Government said today.#WeAre2030: Youth Dialogue and Incubation Programme,’ a youth dialogue bringing 350+ young people from across the country began today at the BMICH. read more

Budget debt deal teed up for Senate passage Trump signing

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump and his Senate GOP allies are relying on lots of Democratic votes to propel a hard-won budget and debt deal to the finish line.Passage of the measure Thursday would mark a drama-free solution to a worrisome set of Washington deadlines. It also would that Trump’s allies and adversaries were able to set aside ideology in exchange for relative fiscal peace and stability.The Senate vote expected later Thursday would send the legislation to Trump for his promised signature.The measure would permit the government to resume borrowing to pay all its obligations and sets an overall $1.37 trillion limit on agency budgets approved by Congress every year.It would remove any prospect of a government shutdown in October or the return of automatic spending cuts.Andrew Taylor, The Associated Press read more

Cryptocurrency consolidation Canadian bitcoin exchange bought out by Kraken

Cryptocurrency consolidation: Canadian bitcoin exchange bought out by Kraken by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 19, 2016 7:13 am MDT Last Updated Jan 19, 2016 at 8:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A Canadian bitcoin exchange will be acquired by a San Francisco-based exchange, a move that signals consolidation may be afoot in the so-called cryptocurrency world.Bitcoin exchanges are described as the on-ramps and off-ramps of the bitcoin world, allowing users to trade their cash for the digital currency, or vice versa.Cavirtex, a Canadian exchange, was originally launched in 2011. In April 2015 it was acquired by Coinsetter, a New York-based exchange that targets Wall Street traders.Following the deal, both exchanges continued to operate as separate entities.Kraken, a global bitcoin exchange headquartered in San Francisco, says it will acquire both Cavirtex and Coinsetter for an undisclosed amount, and will consolidate the two exchanges under its own brand. Client accounts will be transferred to the new platform on Jan. 26.Bitcoin is a virtual currency that is not controlled by an authority such as a central bank, and is exchanged through peer-to-peer computer networks.Kyle Kemper, senior vice-president of global business development at Coinsetter, says the deal will provide Canadians using the Cavirtex exchange with more liquidity and the ability to swap their bitcoins for a broader array of foreign currencies.“Before with Cavirtex you were only able to trade the Bitcoin-Canadian dollar pair,” says Kemper.“Now Canadians will also be able to trade Bitcoin-U.S. dollar, Bitcoin-euro, Bitcoin-Great British pound, Bitcoin-Japanese yen.”Kemper says the dramatic spike in the value of bitcoin in 2013 — which skyrocketed to more than US$1,000 before subsequently falling lower — caused a slew of new exchanges to open up shop.Now the exchanges are beginning to consolidate, a sign that Kemper says indicates the cryptocurrency industry is starting to mature.“The industry is definitely maturing,” said Kemper. “The central banks are talking about it. The regular banks are talking about. The technology behind it is getting all sorts of play.”The deal will also see Kraken launch an advertising campaign for Bitcoin in Toronto, encouraging Canadians to purchase the cryptocurrency.“We’ve been servicing the bitcoin community, but now it’s about reaching out to the larger community as well,” said Kemper.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter. read more

Automotive industry to give young people behindthescenes access to manufacturing

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has announced its latest See Inside Manufacturing (SIM) scheme, which will give youngsters the chance to experience the car manufacturing industry at first hand, in a programme that runs throughout October.SIM, which was first trialled with the automotive industry in 2011, gives companies the chance to open their doors to young people and give them a taste of modern manufacturing, as well as providing a valuable insight into future career opportunities in the industry.While aerospace and food & drink have since joined automotive in taking part in SIM, this year will see seven new sectors added to the tally of participants.These new sectors include nuclear, oil & gas, offshore wind, construction, life sciences, electronics and chemicals.Vince Cable, Business Secretary, said, “See Inside Manufacturing plays an important part in challenging outdated perceptions of manufacturing. In the past year alone it has helped thousands of young people see just how dynamic the industry is, with nearly nine in ten saying they would now consider a career in manufacturing.“Today’s expansion sees seven more sectors involved, including oil and gas, offshore wind and the life sciences, all of which are crucial to supporting the growing UK economy. I share the enthusiasm shown by manufacturers to inspire young people to get involved in these rewarding careers.”Further announcements relating to the events will be made later this month.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Glencore Sudbury operations recognised with TSM Leadership Award

first_imgFor its outstanding performance in the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative, Glencore’s Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations (Sudbury INO) has been recognised with a special TSM Leadership Award. The TSM Leadership Award is granted only when an operation meets or exceeds a level “A” ranking in its results across all of the six performance areas of the TSM initiative (known as protocols) – safety and health, aboriginal and community outreach, crisis management, tailings management, biodiversity conservation management, and energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management.An operation’s TSM results must be externally verified to be eligible for this recognition. In addition to the TSM Leadership Award, Sudbury INO was also recognised with TSM Performance Awards for each of the six performance areas of TSM based on its 2013 results.  “The TSM Leadership Award is a rare distinction. It is given to operations that demonstrate leadership in these key areas. With this award, we celebrate the dedicated employees of Glencore’s Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations for being a role model to other mining operations in Canada,” said Pierre Gratton, President and CEO, the Mining Association of Canada.Marc Boissonneault, Glencore Vice President, said that he was honoured to accept the award on behalf of all employees at Sudbury INO. “Many of the milestones that we have accomplished in our sustainable development performance are a direct result of the contributions of our employees across all levels in our organisation and so this is quite special,” he said. “This award represents our concerted efforts on a number of important fronts, including the advancement of our safety culture to much higher levels. I am especially proud of our employees in this regard as safety is core to everything that we do.”“To see that we have also been recognised for our performance in five other key areas in our sustainable development framework is also quite an honour,” Boissonneault added. “We take pride in being responsible stewards of the environment and we value our relationships with our stakeholders as they are an extension of our business in so many respects.” While the Sudbury INO’s scores reflect leadership across all TSM performance areas, it also stands out for demonstrating best practices in energy use and GHG emissions management. In this area, the operations achieved the highest possible ranking – level “AAA” – across all of the indicators that make up this protocol.Glencore’s Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations joins an elite group of a small number of mine sites that have achieved this distinction in TSM’s 10-year history, including Syncrude Canada’s oil sands facility (awarded in 2007), Barrick Gold’s Hemlo mine (awarded in 2011), Teck’s Elkview Operations (awarded in 2013), Teck’s Cardinal River Operations (awarded in 2014), and Teck Trail Operations (awarded in 2014). Sudbury INO has been mining nickel-copper ores in the Sudbury area of northern Ontario since 1929. Its activities consist of exploration, two underground mines (Nickel Rim South and Fraser Mine), Strathcona Mill and the Sudbury Smelter. The operations are spread throughout the geological formation known as the Sudbury Basin. Nickel and copper are the primary metals, but it also produces cobalt and precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The company employs about 1,300 permanent people.Recently, Sudbury INO achieved 5 million hours without a single lost time injury in their integrated business of exploration, mining, milling and smelting operations, and its Nickel Rim South Mine received the prestigious John T Ryan Award in 2013, recognising the site as the safest metal mine in Ontario. The Mining Association of Canada is the national organisation for the Canadian mining industry. Its members account for most of Canada’s production of base and precious metals, uranium, diamonds, metallurgical coal, mined oil sands and industrial minerals and are actively engaged in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication.last_img read more

Irish people put their spuds in the ground around St Paddys Day

first_img 6 Comments Short URL 487 Views Mar 18th 2017, 12:30 PM ‘Irish people put their spuds in the ground around St Paddy’s Day, believing it to be an auspicious day’ We have somewhat of a pre-parade tradition in the Kelly household of sowing spuds with the children, writes Michael Kelly. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Saturday 18 Mar 2017, 12:30 PM By Michael Kelly Michael Kelly Gardener IT SEEMS APPROPRIATE to have a bit of a chat about potatoes what with it being St Patrick’s Day weekend and all. Traditionally, Irish people put their spuds in the ground on or around St Patrick’s Day, believing it to be an auspicious day on which to do so.We have somewhat of a pre-parade tradition in the Kelly household of sowing spuds with the children. Since it’s always the first outside sowing I do each year, it’s always exciting after a long winter hibernation.We mark out a row in the veg beds, I stick my hands down in to the cold soil around a foot-deep to make a hole, Youngest Girl pops in the seed spud and covers it with soil and then we shuffle on along the row.She talks constantly while we work, peppering me with questions about anything and everything. I say: “Do you ever stop jibber-jabbering?” and she laughs and says: “No”. These are memories to cherish.Fundamentally, potatoes are not difficult to growAll you are doing is basically sticking one of last year’s spuds in the soil which sprouts into a plant, which produces lots of other potatoes. So a single potato is magically transformed into anything from five to fifteen potatoes, which you must admit is sort of miraculous.The most important thing to remember is that potatoes form along the stem between the seed spud and the surface of the soil – the more space you have between the two, the more spuds you get.So, that means either sowing the spud really deep in the soil, or “earthing up” once the plant comes out of the ground – that means, drawing soil up around the stem to force it to grow longer.Potatoes won’t really mind if your soil isn’t great Source: Shutterstock/TwilightArtPicturesIn fact, they will do a good job of helping you to improve it. Sowing spuds is a universally accepted method of helping to turn an unpromisingly poor piece of ground into a vegetable patch.When you grow your own potatoes you also get to try out lots of varieties that aren’t so readily available in the shops (where the Rooster and Kerr’s Pink hold sway) – you can literally grow whatever variety takes your fancy – for example Orla, Home Guard, British Queen, Duke of York, Setanta, Cara, Sarpo Mira and more.I think it’s weird that we’ve become obsessed with imported sweet potatoes as a so-called superfood when the humble spud is just as nutritious and what’s more it’s a seasonal, fresh, local food that also supports Irish jobs.It’s one of the most versatile ingredients we have at our disposal in the kitchen. Very few dinners (in our house at least) do not contain some portion of potatoes, whether they be boiled, baked, roasted, fried, mashed, chipped, or if we’re feeling sassy au gratin, duchesse or dauphine. And if you think supermarket spuds are convenient, well in my view it’s even more convenient to wander down to the veg patch and dig some spuds fresh from the soil – you don’t even have to get in the car.The act of harvesting spuds is pure GIY joy. Rummaging in the soil underneath a potato plant and finding lots of lovely tubers is a moment that gives opening presents on Christmas morning a run for its money.The Basics – PotatoesEffectively there are two types of potatoes – earlies and maincrop. Earlies grow quickly, have no skin worth speaking of, and are usually out of the soil before blight arrives in summer.Maincrop develop later, produce a higher yield, develop a thick skin and can therefore be stored – they are, unfortunately, more vulnerable to blight as they are in the ground during the summer months when blight conditions prevail.Potatoes are grown from “seed potatoes” which are potatoes saved from the previous year’s crop. It was traditional for Irish GIYers to save their own seed potatoes but this is generally out of favour now – better to buy certified seed potatoes each year, in case your own potatoes carry over a virus.The soil in which you are planting potatoes requires a generous application of well-rotted farmyard manure, compost or seaweed before planting (ideally the previous winter). Too much nitrogen however encourages leafy growth at the expense of the tubers.Sow first earlies in mid-March in single rows, 15cm deep, 25cm apart and 45cm between rows. Maincrop spuds are sown in mid to late April. Increase spacing to 35cm.This Month at GROW HQNext week at GROW HQ we’ve courses on soil life, making homemade sausages, ‘this month in the veg patch’ and the return of our Mindful Lunch.Recipe of the Week – Jerusalem artichokes, leeks and black pudding Source: Shutterstock/vslI like this Nigel Slater recipe that pairs two things that I have in the garden right now (Jerusalem artichokes and leeks) with black pudding, with surprisingly delicious results.In GROW HQ and here at home, we use Inch House fresh blood black pudding which is a brilliant, artisan produce with no unnatural additives.IngredientsJerusalem artichokes 500golive oil 3 tbspbutter 30gthyme 6 sprigsleeks 1 largeblack pudding 300gflat-leaf parsley a small handfulDirectionsScrub the artichokes well with a vegetable brush, making sure to get the soil from every ridge and crevice. Cut them into rounds no more than a centimetre thick.Warm the olive oil and butter in a shallow pan over a moderate heat, tip in the artichokes and let them cook for 8-10 minutes.Pull the thyme leaves from their stems and add to the artichokes. As each artichoke slice becomes pale gold on the underside, turn it over with kitchen tongs or a palette knife and let the other side colour appetisingly.Wash and slice the leek into rounds, about the thickness of a coin. Lift the artichokes out onto a plate. Tip the leeks into the pan and let them cook, with the occasional stir, so they become translucent, but do not brown.When the leeks are cooked, return the artichokes to the pan. Cut the black pudding into 2cm-thick slices then add to the artichokes and leeks, crumbling into large pieces as you go. Pull the parsley leaves from their stems then add them to the pan.Serve when all is sizzling hot.Michael Kelly is founder of GIY and GROW HQ.Click here for more GIY tips and recipes. http://jrnl.ie/3291774 Share Tweet Email6 last_img read more

Team Australia sparks debate

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The ‘m’ word is still a contentious one for some, that’s for sure. With seven syllables ‘multiculturalism’ was never going to trip off the tongue as a vital, easily understood political platform, in the same way that ‘health’ ‘education’ and ’employment’ do. With Victorian Multicultural Minister Nick Kotsiras’ most recently reported comments emblazoned across the cover of Tuesday’s Herald Sun newspaper, followed by a six-column editorial the next day, the Fairfax title obviously felt the subject was of such import that it required a sizable response. The commentary of the Herald Sun was as revealing, if not more so, than the minister’s latest reflections on nationality and social cohesion. What others might latch-on to as benign reflections on generating a feeling of national inclusivity, the story became a canvas for ideas that have at their root, a strong resentment to, and distrust of, the term ‘multiculturalism’ and its place in the Victorian and Australian political landscape. On his way to Question Time in the Victorian Parliament, I took the opportunity to talk to Nicholas Kotsiras about the origins of his metaphor of ‘Team Australia’, and his comment on the benefits of a national anthem sung by all. “Football teams have players with different skills, different heights. What I was saying with Team Australia, is that while we have our own unique identity, our aim is to play together, to assist each other, and in doing so, to score.” Mr Kotsiras says the idea of the analogy came through his visits to schools, where typically in his experience, between 5 and 30 per cent of students, when asked to raise their hands if they were Australian, felt unable to do so. It obviously struck a chord, if not an alarm bell, in the minister’s mind. “I don’t want any child to feel they are an outsider. That’s my fear. Every child should feel part of the community, part of Victoria, part of Australia. “I don’t think of myself as an add-on,” says the minister whose own cultural heritage underpins his political agenda. “We are Australia, all of us.”Perhaps it is the idealism that confounds Nicholas Kotisiras’ detractors the most. His critics are clearly those uncomfortable with the notion of government intervening in the sensitive and entwined subjects of cultural and national identity: interventions that some feel, need not, and should not, be the concern of politicians and governments. The minister’s oft-quoted comment last week as to the benefits of all schoolchildren in Victoria singing the national anthem isn’t quite what it appears, he says. “The anthem is not going to be the answer, but I’d love to see every school sing the national anthem because the students get a sense of belonging. I know I did when I was at school.” As chair of the government’s Language Education and Mutlicutural Education committee, which reports to Education Minister Andrew Dixon, Kotsiras says the Team Australia concept is an extension of work being undertaken across the board by the Baillieu government on schools education. “We’re looking to ensure every child learns a second language from prep to year 10, and another part of this is to see what resources are available in terms of civic education. “My comment on the anthem was one small ingredient. We’re involved in upgrading civic education, which is all about rights and responsibilities. We’re reviewing the resources that are available to teachers, making sure they are relevant and up to date, and that they are meeting targets and outcomes, in terms of every child putting up their hand.” Nicholas Kotsiras’ summing-up of his multicultural political odyssey is disarmingly simple: “We start from a base which says we value our diversity and our differences, the next question is how do we utilise that to move forward, to create an inclusive and united society.” In the national press the minister surfaced again last week, in a story in The Australian on the Victorian government’s submission to federal parliament’s enquiry into multiculturalism. It’s no secret that the Victorian minister’s ambitions, include the federal government adopting a similar Multicultural Act to that which exists in Victoria. What can be transferred to the national picture from Victoria?“Cohesion and unity. Peace and harmony,” responds the minister, who says that in his dealings with other states Victoria is applauded for the lead that it has shown in defining the multicultural agenda in state politics and legislation. “Look at what other states have experienced over the years, and what we in Victoria have experienced, in terms of people feeling part of the community.” In The Australian, former federal minister Dr Gary Johns, (a member the Keating government that spearheaded the national multicultural agenda), said that a federal ‘multicultural act’ could lead to ‘unintended consequences’, including new rights that could ultimately be a divisive force and limit free speech.Dr Johns argued that “legislating for multiculturalism is to introduce the potential for different rules,” and that cultural laws in themselves were no aid to social harmony. Nick Kotsiras believes such concerns are unfounded. “I would encourage Dr Johns to read our Multicultural Act. It simply recognises the culturally, religiously, racially and linguistically diverse people of Victoria, that’s all it does. There’s nothing in it that gives anyone special privileges. It’s a definition of who we are and our rights and responsibilities. “Our legislation has achieved the outcome of uniting individuals and groups, while at the same time encouraging people to be proud to showcase their differences. That’s what our legislation does.” Team Australia may well sing the national anthem before the game begins, but the political football that is ‘multiculturalism’ will be kicked around a while yet before there’s universal agreement on how its principles can best be sewn into the fabric of Australian society.last_img read more

Comment évaluer les possibilités dhabitat des exoplanètes

first_imgComment évaluer les possibilités d’habitat des exoplanètes ?Publiant leurs travaux dans la revue Astrobiology, les membres d’une équipe internationale ont discerné deux types d’indicateurs d’habitabilité des astres, autrement dit des paramètres dont dépendent, selon eux, la probabilité que telle ou telle planète soit habitée.  Des chercheurs ont conçu deux systèmes de ‘notation’ des planètes pour évaluer la probabilité, pour chacune d’elles, d’accueillir la vie extraterrestre : un indice de similarité avec la Terre (Earth Similarity Index, ou ESI) et un indice d’habitabilité planétaire (Planetary Habitability Index, ou PHI).À lire aussiLe grand “boom” entendu par les New-Yorkais proviendrait d’une météorite”La première question est de savoir si les conditions terrestres peuvent être trouvées sur d’autres mondes, puisque nous savons empiriquement que ces conditions pourraient abriter la vie”, explique le Dr Dirk Schulze-Makuch, de la Washington State University, aux États-Unis. Basée sur des facteurs comme la taille, la densité et la distance par rapport à l’étoile-mère, l’ESI est ainsi estimée à 89% pour l’exo-planète Gliese 581g, à 70% pour Mars et à 56% pour la Lune.Un second indice “d’habitabilité planétaire” “La deuxième question est de savoir si les conditions existent, sur des exoplanètes, qui suggèrent la possibilité d’autres formes de vie, connues ou pas”, poursuit le Dr Schulze-Makuch. La PHI se penche donc, elle, sur d’autres facteurs, tels que le type de surface (rocheuse, glacée…), l’existence d’une atmosphère ou d’un champ magnétique, l’énergie disponible (issue d’une étoile proche ou d’interactions gravitationnelles), et enfin la chimie (présence de composés organiques et de solvants liquides pour des réactions chimiques vitales). Titan (une lune de Saturne) affiche ainsi un score de 64%, Mars de 59%, Europe de 49%, et Gliese 581g de 45%.Cette dernière est donc un assez bon candidat, selon les deux échelles. Si le télescope spatial Kepler, lancé en 2009, a déjà trouvé plus de 1.000 exoplanètes, ses successeurs pourraient être en mesure de détecter des bio-marqueurs dans la lumière émise par des planètes lointaines, comme la présence de chlorophylle.Le 26 novembre 2011 à 17:34 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Watford manager Javi Gracia happy with first away win

first_imgJavi Gracia is “enjoying the moment” after his first away win as Watford manager in a 3-1 victory at Burnley.Javi Gracia’s side had troubles last season away from home, however, Watford will be going home with all three points today as they defeated Burnley, thanks to goals from Andre Gray, Troy Deeney and Will Hughes.Watford’s victory away against Burnley saw them end a bad record of 12 away games without a win and eight in a row without a goal.Javi Gracia is over the moon about his first win away from Vicarage Road. Sky Sports reports.“I don’t like to look back at statistics from last season, I prefer to enjoy this moment,” he told a press conference.”What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“I’m very happy for the players. Today we scored three so we have done better than we did last season.”“For me it is always important to get a win but today is the first away win. Last season we had the chance to get points and score goals but we didn’t do it.”“It was a challenge for us to improve on previous away games. We got a good result today, we played well and we continued with the same play as we have before.”“I’m happy with the first half too but the second half, we were given a step forward and controlled the game until the last moments. We created many chances, had many shots on target – more than Burnley – and I’m happy for that.”“We know to play here [at Turf Moor] is tough. They are a very demanding team and you know you have to defend really well. Today, we have conceded one goal from a corner because it is difficult to defend [James] Tarkowski but I think we have done a really good job.”last_img read more

Immigration Policy to Reflect All Nationalities Independent Commission to Approve Applications for

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 25, 2017 – Nassau – The Government of The Bahamas’ immigration policy is not based on any one individual group of persons residing locally, but about individuals from “all countries” who are here illegally, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis said Sunday.Prime Minister Minnis also announced that Administration officials will create an Independent Commission to approve applications for citizenship in accordance with the Constitution “and our laws” to avoid any potential political interference.  Responsibility for the approval of applications for citizenship will be removed from the Cabinet, except for cases of national security.“It is not a policy solely about individuals from the Republic of Haiti. People of Haitian descent will not be especially targeted,” Prime Minister Minnis said.   “The policy is about individuals from any country who are not legally in The Bahamas.“This includes individuals from the Caribbean, South America, Central America and North America.   The policy is also concerned with Bahamians who illegally employ individuals from anywhere in the world,” Prime Minister Minnis added.Addressing worshipers attending the Sunday, October 22, 2017 morning service at the Metropolitan Church of the Nazarene, Prime Minister Minnis said The Bahamas must be a country that upholds its laws.   The Prime Minister said the Government will be just, and humane, in upholding all of the country’s laws when it comes to immigration matters.Administration officials, Dr. Minnis said, will act in accordance with the Constitution of The Bahamas and the demands of human dignity and social justice to grant residency and citizenship to those eligible individuals who qualify for such status.“To the press ‘No I am not opening flood gates, but I will, and all of The Bahamas will, respect and enforce the laws of our country.   We must uphold the law in terms of the grant of permanent residency and citizenship.   We must uphold the law in terms of illegal migration and those who illegally employ individuals not in The Bahamas legally.   Those Bahamians or otherwise who hire illegals are breaking our laws and will be prosecuted,” the Prime Minister added.Prime Minister Minnis said while The Bahamas has a legal responsibility to enforce its immigration policies to the full extent of the law, the country must also be fair in terms of its immigration policies and practices as it is comprised of persons “who have their roots” from throughout the Caribbean and the world.“We are made up of people from Africa, Europe and the Americas.   We are made up of people from Dominica, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and from throughout the Caribbean.   We are also made up of people from Haiti.   The ties between The Bahamas and Haiti go back for much more than a century.   Haiti and The Bahamas are bound together by history, by geography and by family ties.“We must be fair and just towards those who have contributed in so many ways to The Bahamas.   This means we must be fair in terms of our immigration practices and policies.   It is not fair, nor just, for so many of our young people to be marginalized, isolated or placed in no man’s land (stateless). Many cannot open bank accounts, attend universities, or travel, in spite of finishing our High Schools and in some instances, performing at the top of the class.“My Government will act in accordance with our Constitution and the demands of human dignity and social justice to grant residency and citizenship for eligible individuals who qualify for such status.“Too many people have been waiting a long time to be granted permanent residency.   Some people have to go year-to-year for a Work Permit when they should have been granted permanent residency some time ago.   We must vigorously address this issue,” Prime Minister Minnis said.By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo caption: Prime Minister Dr. the Hon.

Turo Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

Getty Images Ever see something in a Google image search that you had to have straight away? You might be in luck. Google Google is working on removing a step by testing shoppable ads in sponsored image search results, it said in a blog post Tuesday.The ads let retailers highlight several items for sale within the sponsored image (which includes a price tag icon). You see the price, the brand and other info, so you can see if you can actually afford that desk and office chair.”We’re currently testing this on a small percentage of traffic with select retailers, surfacing on broad queries like ‘home office ideas,’ ‘shower tile designs,’ and ‘abstract art,’ ” wrote Google Shopping exec Surojit Chatterjee.The feature will roll out to more categories and retailers in the coming months. It comes nearly a year after Google introduced Shopping Actions, which linked search results to its retail partners.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Greater Houston Coalition For Justice Recognizes State Board Of Education For Course

first_imgPhoto provided by the Office of Houston City Council Member Robert GallegosFrom left to right: Sergio Lira, Secretary of the Houston Independent School District’s Board of Education; Donna Bahorich, Chairwoman of the State Board of Education; Houston City Council Member Robert Gallegos; Cuauhtémoc Figueroa, of the Adelante Strategy Group and former Director of Policy and Communications for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC); and Johnny Mata, Presiding Officer of the Greater Houston Coalition for Justice, speak with local media at the press conference where the coalition presented Bahorich with a letter of recognition for approving the creation of a high school course on Mexican-American history.The Greater Houston Coalition for Justice (GHCJ) recognized Tuesday the State Board of Education for approving the recent creation of a high school course on Mexican-American history.At a press conference held in front of Houston’s City Hall, Johnny Mata, the GHCJ’s presiding officer, gave a letter of recognition to Donna Bahorich, who chairs the board.The letter makes reference to the “noteworthy courage” shown by the board by giving the final green light to creating the course on April 13.“We recognize it as a major step forward,” Mata told Houston Public Media (HPM) talking about the course. Mata also thinks the course can spark interest regarding human and civic rights among the students who take it.On her part, Bahorich commented she was “honored” because of the recognition presented by the GHCJ and added that creating the course is “a significant move forward” because it will teach students of Mexican descent –as well as other students who take it— “about how their history is part of the American story too in a very deep way.”The name of the course, which will be ‘Ethnic Studies: An Overview of Americans of Mexican Descent’, caused some reactions last week that were somewhat critical, but Mata –who has been a local activist for human and civil rights for many years— used a baseball analogy to say that he, at least a personal level, doesn’t have a problem with it.“In order to score a home run –whether it’s a home run or whether run towards plate— you gotta get to first base,” Mata told HPM and, in reference to the lengthy period of time advocates of the course have tried to convince state officials to create it at a state level, he added: “After so many years of trying, we’re on first base.”Additionally, Douglas Torres-Edwards –who authored the course on Mexican-American Studies taught at schools that are part of the Houston Independent School District (HISD), which will be the basis for the statewide course— was recognized by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Council Member Robert Gallegos during the public session of the City Council’s Tuesday meeting, coinciding with Tejano History Month.Gallegos represents District I and personally advocated for the course in front of the board last week.

Where Houston Could Find The Money To Protect Itself Against Future Floods

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /00:44 Listen center_img TxDOT Beaumont Henry Cisneros was San Antonio’s mayor before joining the Clinton administration as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Now he’s part of the Bipartisan Policy Group, a Washington, D.C. think tank that studies how cities can build infrastructure for the future.Assessing Houston’s situation, Cisneros said the challenges were massive even before Harvey’s floods. “Houston is one of the most vulnerable cities in the entire United States with respect to violent weather, climate issues,” explained Cisneros.And considering Houston can experience flooding even during a hard thunderstorm, Cisneros remarked that the city now needs to put itself in a forward thinking mode.“It’s a matter of articulating a logic that says it’s not adequate to just react to circumstances like Harvey and fight the last war, make corrections that would have helped in Harvey,” said Cisneros. “We have to think of how we build the infrastructure that is going to continue to make Houston the economic engine that it is, for the people of Houston and the state and the country.”Instead of just reacting to the last big storm, Cisneros said the city should look to ongoing revenue streams for a consistent source of infrastructure funding.“Infrastructure doesn’t pay for itself,” said Cisneros. “Once you fall behind you end up paying more. You either pay now and get ahead of some of these things and avoid the billions of dollars of damages that come from them. Or you will pay later.”So what streams could Houston tap for ongoing funding? Cisneros said for one, the city may be able to reallocate a portion of its current sales taxes. “Or some special fees associated with development in areas that are growing and need special attention or some overarching dedicated fees,” continued Cisneros.In August, Harris County voters will be asked to approve a bond issue to fund millions in new flood control projects.

Verizon Names CTO Hans Vestberg Next CEO Replacing Lowell McAdam

first_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15,The moves come after Marni Walden, EVP and president of global media, stepped down at the end of 2017. Walden has since said she exited after it became clear she was not going to be a candidate for the CEO spot. Vestberg, a native of Sweden, had spent virtually his entire career at Ericsson. After joining the telecommunications-equipment maker in 1991, he was named CFO in 2007 and then CEO in 2009. Ericsson ousted Vestberg in July 2016 after the company missed financial targets several quarters in a row.The changeover comes as Verizon’s rivals in the wireless and telecom space are engaged in transformational M&A deals. AT&T is trying to swallow Time Warner, with a ruling expected June 12 in the DOJ’s lawsuit to block the acquisition. Meanwhile, after years of back-and-forth, T-Mobile and Sprint announced an agreement to merge.McAdam has been loath to pull the trigger on a big M&A play, with Verizon instead making relatively smaller deals for internet media players AOL (for $4.4 billion) and Yahoo ($4.5 billion). By picking Vestberg to lead Verizon, the board is signaling the focus will continue to be investing in wireless networks and technology — specifically, building out a nationwide 5G broadband network — rather than media.“Despite Mr. Vestberg’s short tenure thus far at [Verizon], we believe the decision to make him the successor to McAdam makes sense given Vestberg likely has the best vision among executives ahead of a massive 5G inflection,” CFRA Research analyst Angelo Zino wrote in a note. He maintained a “hold” recommendation on the stock.McAdam is set to give up his role as Verizon’s CEO exactly seven years after he was named to the job on Aug. 1, 2011. He was previously Verizon’s president and COO, overseeing wireline and wireless operations, and before that was CEO of Verizon Wireless from 2007 until 2010 (which he joined in 2000). Earlier in his career he worked for cellular carriers PrimeCo and AirTouch Communications and held management roles at Pacific Bell.[UPDATE: Just hours after naming Vestberg to the CEO role, Verizon announced that EVP of global operations John Stratton is stepping down from his role immediately, serving as an adviser to McAdam before leaving at the company at the end of 2018.] Lowell McAdam is stepping down as CEO of Verizon Communications on Aug. 1, to be replaced by former Ericsson chief exec Hans Vestberg, the telco announced Friday.McAdam, 64, will serve as executive chairman of the board through his retirement from Verizon at the end of the year, at which time he will become non-executive chairman. His exit has been widely expected on Wall Street, but the company hadn’t provided a clear picture of the succession plan.Now Verizon’s board has made its choice: Vestberg, 52, who joined the company a little over a year ago as CTO and EVP/president of global networks. Vestberg (pictured above) previously served as Ericsson’s president and CEO for six years.“For Verizon, the time for a change in leadership is now, and I am confident that Hans is the right person to bring Verizon through its next chapter,” McAdam said in a statement, calling Vestberg “an energizing force” at the company. It has truly been a pleasure and a privilege to lead this great company. I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together. I look forward to continuing to play a part in its future as Executive Chairman of the Board, and I have tremendous confidence in where Verizon is headed with your support and Hans’s leadership.Thank you for your dedication to Verizon. And never forget, there’s always a higher gear.Sincerely,Lowellcenter_img Popular on Variety With his appointment as Verizon CEO, Vestberg’s base salary will increase to $1.5 million (up from $807,497 in 2017), according to a regulatory filing. The exec’s target short-term incentive opportunity will increase from 150% to 250% of base salary, and his target long-term incentive opportunity will increase from 600% to 800% of base salary. Vestberg also will get a one-time stock grant worth about $10 million as of Aug. 1, 2018, when the CEO switch takes effect.The moves come after Marni Walden, EVP and president of global media, stepped down at the end of 2017. Walden has since said she exited after it became clear she was not going to be a candidate for the CEO spot.Read McAdam’s memo to Verizon employees about the CEO transition:V Team,I have something I’d like to share with you. I’ve been with our company and its predecessors for 35 years, and your Chairman and CEO for the past seven. Today, marks the beginning of an important series of events for Verizon. We are announcing that Hans Vestberg will succeed me as the Chief Executive Officer on August 1st. I will serve as Executive Chairman of the Board through the end of the year, and then continue as Chairman of the Board in a non-Executive capacity starting in 2019.This is an exciting period for Verizon, and I believe there is no better time for this transition than now. It is my pleasure to hand the reins over to Hans. Hans is a recognized executive in the telecommunications and technology industries, and since joining Verizon in early 2017 he has demonstrated his ability to innovate and execute. I know that he has the right expertise, experience and business acumen to lead us forward and build on our strategy. Importantly, Hans is an inspiring leader, with high energy and a passion for delivering on the core values that truly make Verizon the world leader it is today.When I look back at the milestones throughout my career, the one that stands out most is Verizon’s transformation into a world-class technology company. Today, Verizon is one of the world’s leading providers of communications, information and entertainment products and services to consumers, businesses and governmental agencies. Our goal has always been to improve lives through innovation. As I think about the power of 5G, I am convinced that this is a significant and pivotal time for Verizon and our entire industry – and now is the time to bring Verizon into its next chapter.last_img read more

Mass Effect Infiltrator spinoff and Datapad app coming to iOS

first_imgElectronic Arts announced two Mass Effect-related products for iOS at a recent press event: Mass Effect Infiltrator, a third-person action title; and Mass Effect Datapad, a companion app for iPad only.Infiltrator is a third person shooter in the works at Iron Monkey Studios, which made the critically-acclaimed Dead Space iOS. Players are on a mission to free prisoners from a “hostile Cerberus base” and investigate the group’s crimes.In classic Mass Effect fashion, actions taken in Infiltrator will affect the plot in the upcoming Mass Effect 3 by way of the Galaxy at War system. Your accomplishments in the iOS game will contribute to that system’s “Galactic Readiness rating.” Playing the game also unlocks weapons in ME3.Mass Effect Datapad, on the other hand, has no details yet. Based on the name, it’s a reasonable guess that EA is working up a companion app for the major game, ME3. It’s easy to envision an in-game encyclopedia to keep track of the universe or a tactical assistant to come in handy while in combat mode. Datapad will be an iPad exclusive.Mass Effect Infiltrator is due out “soon” – expect it somewhere around the release of ME3.via TouchArcademei1mei1mei2mei3Blake’s OpinionWelcome to the future! Expect the Next Big Thing from major publishers to be companion apps for high-profile releases.Activision turned on the faucet with a companion app for Call of Duty Elite, and Microsoft upped the ante with Halo ATLAS.Some have complained about the apps and programs, saying that they “squeeze” customers. While that possibility exists for the future, for now I disagree with that observation. So far it’s a good way for the truly hardcore to get more into their game of choice, and publishers who are scared of losing money to used game sales can make more money from those really hardcore fans.So far, it’s a win-win.last_img read more

KB4106250 cumulative update for Windows 10 to build 1506311

first_imgKB4106250: cumulative update for Windows 10 to build 15063.11 by Martin Brinkmann on April 01, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 6 commentsAnd so the patching of the Windows Creators Update before release of the final version of the Windows 10 Creators Update begins.As I have mentioned earlier, it may be a bit premature to download and install the Creators Update right away. Users may download and install it on their machines using a leaked copy of the Update Assistant, or by downloading ISO images that are also available.The main reason why it is premature is that it was almost certain that the leaked version is not the final version. This is not a super big problem for users who have installed the Creators Update already, as they just have to download the additional patches to bring their system to the latest level.Still, considering that the official release is on April 11th, 2017, and that users who are interested in it may install it officially starting April 5th, 2017, it is better to wait at least the couple of days before you start the update engines.If you look back to how things were when the Anniversary Update was released for Windows 10, you will notice that loads of bugs emerged in the first couple of weeks. Microsoft did fix those eventually, but if you were unlucky enough, you had to endure those issues for weeks.KB4106250KB4106250 is a cumulative update for Windows 10 that brings the build number of the Creators Update to 15063.11.Microsoft released the update to all Insider Preview channels (Fast, Slow, Release Preview). The changelog has not been published publicly. It is only available in the Feedback Hub application.We need Windows Insiders to help validate the first Cumulative Update to go out for the Windows 10 Creators Update which is set to begin rolling out to customers around the world on April 11th, Today we are releasing a Cumulative Update Build 15063.11(KB4016250) for PC to Windows Insiders in all rings. This Cumulative Update brings the following fixes:We fixed an issue where on Surface devices, Bluetooth radio fails to re-enumerate during hibernate/resume.We fixed an issue with McAfee Enterprise to prevent a system crash when the product driver is installed on build 15060 configured with Device Guard.While you may not be affected by those particular issues, more patches are probably being released in the coming days.Now You: Do you plan to upgrade to the Creators Update right away, delayed, or not at all?SummaryArticle NameKB4106250: cumulative update for Windows 10 to build 15063.11DescriptionMicrosoft released KB4106250,a cumulative update for Windows 10 that brings the Creators Update version of the operating system to build 15063.11.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
